A-tisket a-tasket -- Hillary's green and yellow basket
By Michael Bresciani
September 16, 2016

The first lady of song, Ella Fitzgerald gave us the classic song A-Tisket A-Tasket, A Green and Yellow Basket.

Fitzgerald passed in 1996 and we had to wait nearly 20 years for another woman to bring in a classic line using the analogy of a basket.

Win or lose, Hillary will no doubt always be known for her campaign proclamation that her opponent's supporters (All American voters) are a "basket of deplorables."

She may have broken every record in American campaign history. She is the first presidential candidate to go beyond criticizing her opponent all the way to demeaning and slurring a huge block of American citizens.

Undaunted fully dumbed down democrats are hardly fazed, they want their princess of prevarications to ascend at all costs. Polls have barely moved.

This says more about the country than the candidate.

Hillary, a loving disciple of Margaret Sanger poses a challenge to the imagination of most decent American voters. It is hard to imagine a basket large enough to hold the lifeless corpses of 55 million aborted American babies, all the result of the Sanger philosophy of death.

Are the millions of start-up, mini human beings and potential voters also – deplorable?

Would it be safe, reasonable and decent to say that there are millions of "infantophobics" in Hillary's basket?

Using some famous howbeit over rated and overused politically correct catch words to describe the Trump supporters is not only repulsive, but it is wrought with mis-guided and spurious definitions as in the use of the word – Islamophobic.

The religion of peace website says – "The overwhelming obsession with "Islamophobia" is not supported by a body count. That may sound crass, but since 9/11, an additional 139 Americans have been killed in 48 separate acts of deadly Islamic terror or Islam-related honor killing in the United States. Hundreds of mass murder plots have been thwarted or botched. The real story is not "Islamophobia" but American tolerance – which rightly refuses to punish the individual based on group identity."

Let's do some simple math. 3000 souls wiped out by Muslims on 9/11, add to that everyone who died in Orlando, Boston, San Bernardino and other American cities totals 1637 (Just 2016 alone) – now add the thousands who were killed, maimed and traumatized in 33 countries around the world in 29,222 Muslim attacks.

Now let's look at the word "Islamophobic once again. Is it an unfounded fear? Or is it a lifesaving fear that encourages, funds and equips all the nations of the west to ready themselves for further attacks.

Islamophobia is the best tool we have at the moment – it may be all we have at this time to keep us safe. In fact, we expect our next president to have a healthy portion of Islamophobia to keep all those involved in anti-terrorism on their toes.

Hillary also used the PC pet term, "xenophobic." This is supposed to be – "intense or irrational dislike or fear of people from other countries." What blithering nonsense is this? Donald Trump has repeatedly indicated that he is for all forms of "legal" immigration and he fully knows that it is what gave birth to our great melting pot from the beginning.

Could it be that Hillary is just lying?

Is anyone surprised?

Then Hillary mentioned the all new American fight against "homophobia." This is the dividing of the basest of all fleshy compunctions into a long list of categories and preferences which now must be defended as basic "human or civil rights"

But don't expect to see a large group of decent noble and brave Americans being pummeled by water cannons and police batons as in the black American civil rights movement.

Rather, you will see frolicking groups of men and women scantily clad with pink feathers, underwear and G-strings. According to Johns Hopkins, "born that way" has gone south and child molestation is on the rise looking for legitimacy in spite of proclamations to the contrary.

On the purely spiritual and Biblical side of the matter homosexuality and counterfeit marriage are the kinds of activities that according to the Bible will bring us into direct conflict with God.

In this case, it speaks to both the candidate and the country.

Finally, we have to ask – does Hillary have a basket, and if so, exactly what is in it?

It is now abundantly clear that Hillary's basket is full of soft pedals from the most beautiful flowers which she spreads at the feet of her adorers a she crosses the country making flowery speeches. But just underneath the top layer of pedals is a thick rotting layer of leaves all with their own imprint. They are called email scandals, Clinton foundation corruption, Benghazi lies, lies about her health, whitewater et al.

But look again in the center of her basket is a glowing if not gleaming phobia that drives both her and her campaign to do and say everything they do.

It is called – "Trumpophobia."

The lower corrupted portion of Hillary's basket is all that she hopes to hide and keep quashed to the American public – it is her record.

This is both the rub and the point.

Hillary has a record, and it is not shining.

Trump has a promise – and it is shining.

I will not risk the displeasure of the Living God by mincing words or saying smooth things to cover the worst behavior and the worst candidate in U.S. history with the possible exception of Barack Obama.

If we choose Hillary in this election we will begin a tailspin to full perdition and destruction from which we will not recover.

Take it or leave it – this is the word for today!

"Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits" (Isa 30: 10)
