Russian authorities recorded a conversation in 2011 in which one of the Boston bombing suspects discussed jihad with his mother.
Yo'el: No one should vote for a candidate based upon what they say or promise during the conventions. What they say is based upon their surveys about what voters wish to hear, and their advisors ideas of how to get your votes-- smiling faces, flattering makeup, powerful and emotional speeches, hugs & joined hands with admiring family and charismatic people-- that's what politicians will say and do at the conventions, interspersed with the truth, in order to win your vote. If you want to get a good president, look to their true character and actions based upon their past history; don't be deceived by the rhetoric, pomp, and glamor of the conventions, all designed to emotionally sway you away from using your reasoning power. As one example: the character and past history of Hillary is on record, for those who wish to admit it: Whitewater evidence of illegal activity; Benghazi; transcript of her paid talk at Wall Street dinner (requested, still not forthcoming); hundreds of missing emails from her server (requested, still not forthcoming); her aide who refused to answer FBI questions “on the grounds it might incriminate me” (translation: I'm falling on my sword for her); and was she truly unaware of how Bernie Sanders was being undermined by her campaign staff? The white color of her pants suit when accepting the nomination projects the idea of purity, something it's a good idea for someone to project when people doubt your honesty. Bottom line for electing a good president-- use critical thinking and do your homework, putting aside, to the best of your ability, the dog and pony show at the conventions, carefully designed to win your vote.
