All Things Trump: John McCain – Chattanooga – Is @realDonaldTrump A #Hillary2016 Plant? Plus Donald Trump Latinos

Update: Oh yes: Trump 24, Walker 13, Bush 12 in new ABC/WaPo national poll. Trump was near 30 percent when the poll started. By Sunday, in the middle of the GOP establishment hyped hysteria, his numbers dropped into single digits. Can Trump survive this? We’ll answer in our next article with a trip down Hillary Clinton memory lane.

——————————————

Trump crosses one red line too many, declares John McCain “not a war hero”. So now we are told it is all over for Donald J. Trump. The Donald. The Trumpster. Let’s blow up some hot air balloons. And no we don’t mean Trump.

As we’ve written so many times before, we’ll have a better idea of how the GOP race will turn out after the August 6 debate. We believe Donald Trump is going to mop up the floor on August 6 but we also state we might be wrong. We’ll wait until after August 6 and the hellacious GOP debate to make our assessment of the current large GOP crop of wannabee presidents.

But some are ready to make pronouncements already. We admit we don’t know if the entire Donald Trump candidacy is one unbelievable publicity stunt for his Washington D.C. hotel. It could be. We doubt it. But it could be. But only dummies would make powerful declarations about a Trump death at this point.

But Trump death pronouncements today are all the rage. Today, Donald Trump slashed at John McCain. John McCain started the fight with Donald Trump and now Donald Trump haters are hatin’ on The Donald.

Here’s what happened:

(1) Donald Trump was not supposed to announce for president.

(2) Donald Trump announced he was running for president.

(3) Donald Trump was not supposed to file with the FEC.

(4) Donald Trump filed with the FEC.

(5) Donald Trump was not supposed to file financial disclosure forms.

(6) Donald Trump filed his financial disclosure forms.

(7) Donald Trump was supposed to have a slight, if any, bump in the polls after his announcement then fade away.

(8) Donald Trump surged to the top of the polls.

(9) Panic ensues.

(10) Hysteria follows.

On the John McCain front, here’s what happened:

(1) Early last week Donald Trump held a very large rally in Arizona.

(2) Senator John McCain of Arizona declared that Donald Trump had “brought out the crazies.”

(3) Donald Trump spoke with a prominent Arizona office holder to drum up a primary challenge to Senator John McCain who is up for reelection in 2016.

(4) Donald Trump at a candidate forum beat up on Senator John McCain.

(5) The Trump busters have declared Trump to be dead and never to be heard from again.

Why is Trump now dead? Allegedly because he said things he did not say about John McCain.

In 2008 we praised John McCain as a war hero. The Barack Obama campaign trashed John McCain. In 2008 McCain supporters on the right did nothing but display weakness as Obama supporters claimed McCain had a good time in the Hanoi Hilton. Obama supporters mocked McCain’s lack of email use. McCain could not use email or computers or raise his hands above his head because of the many bones his Hanoi captors broke. Still McCain campaign sloths sat back and allowed McCain to be attacked.

Obama attacked McCain and McCain supporters did nothing. But when Trump hit back against a McCain attack, all Hell broke lose. What did Donald Trump say about John McCain?:

Donald Trump took a few shots at Senator John McCain at the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa.Trump has been feuding with McCain after McCain said Trump is firing up the crazies with his outlandish rhetoric.

Today Trump let him have it.

Mediaite reported:

At one point, he said he supported McCain in 2008, but doesn’t like him very much now. Luntz pointed out that McCain’s a war hero, and that’s when Trump said this:

He’s a war hero ’cause he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.”

That exchange, granted it is a nasty retort by Trump (and that insults all POWs), has now been transformed to Donald Trump saying that John McCain is NOT a war hero. Donald Trump said McCain is a war hero but Big Media and certain websites report it as Trump saying the opposite. Was Trump mean and nasty? Yes. But Trump was doing to McCain what McCain tried to do to Trump supporters.



McCain called Trump supporters “crazies” and Trump hit back to defend the “crazies”.

Trump refuses to back down. If anything, Trump is hitting back hard attacking McCain on veterans’ affairs and MCain’s smarts.

Earlier in the week Hillary Clinton attacked Donald Trump, as the video above references. In her attack Hillary denounced Trump for attacks on immigrants. Of course Trump has extolled legal immigrants. Trump’s fury is against illegal immigrants. This Hillary attack led to a comic moment.

Before Hillary said “Basta” to Trump at a gathering of the pro-illegal immigration La Raza an amazing line of attack had been developed by Republican opponents of Donald Trump.

That comic line of attack? The charge from a GOP Rep: Trump might be a Democratic plant to help Hillary. So, who are the “crazies”? The “crazies” are those who think Trump is anyone’s plant:

Curbelo, who supports Jeb Bush for president, piled on.

“There are too many important national, local international topics to waste time talking about a person who, I repeat, in my judgment is irrelevant — and who quite possibly is a phantom candidate recruited by the left to create this entire political circus,” he said.

And he further explained to Miami radio host Roberto Rodríguez Tejera.

“I think there’s a small possibility that this gentleman is a phantom candidate,” Curbelo said. “Mr. Trump has a close friendship with Bill and Hillary Clinton. They were at his last wedding. He has contributed to the Clintons’ foundation. He has contributed to Mrs. Clinton’s Senate campaigns. All of this is very suspicious.”

Trump’s recent blistering attacks against Hillary proved how amusing this “plant” theory is. But any tool will be used to bring down Trump’s challenge.

Such is the desperation among certain GOP candidates that they want to believe that Trump is a plant. But it was Rick Perry, the most vocal attacker against Trump, who was a Democrat and big supporter of Al Gore.

For a Jeb Bush supporter to attack Donald Trump as a Hillary plant is truly a laugh. Was it Donald Trump who gave Hillary a medal? No, it was Jeb Bush that spoke in praise of Hillary as he handed her a medal:

Is Jeb Bush ‘unelectable’ because he gave Hillary Clinton an award?

The conservative group ForAmerica suggested that a Clinton campaign could use footage of Bush thanking Clinton ‘to blunt any criticism that Bush levels against her.’

Jeb Bush once handed Hillary Rodham Clinton an award for “public service.” [snip]

“It’s bad enough that Hillary Clinton will likely use footage from this event against any Republican nominee, but if Jeb Bush is her opponent she will make him look ridiculous,” Mr. Bozell said in a statement. [snip]

Back in September 2013, the Constitution Center awarded Mrs. Clinton its Liberty Medal for her international work and efforts on behalf of women and children. At the time she was a few months retired from her post as President Obama’s secretary of State. [snip]

“I want to say ‘thank you’ to both Secretary Clinton and President Clinton. Thank you for your service to our country. We are united by a love of country and public service,” says Bush.

No doubt the award to Hillary Clinton was well deserved. No doubt Jeb Bush was a gentleman to present the award. No doubt such footage used in a campaign ad, which we are sure already exists, will and should be used by Hillary2016 if Jeb Bush is the nominee of the Republican Party. No doubt the “Trump is a Hillary plant” line of argument is a desperate ploy from desperate people.

Why the desperation? Here’s a clue:

Something strange has happened to the Republican presidential field since Donald Trump joined it a month ago: Mr. Trump and Jeb Bush are rising. Everyone else is falling in the polls, or seems stuck in place.

Mr. Bush’s support has jumped by about four percentage points in the Real Clear Politics average of polls, rising to 15.5%. Mr. Trump’s support has bumped up more than 10 points since mid-June, to 15% as of Friday.

Why the anti-Trump desperation? Maybe it’s because the issues Trump highlights quickly turn, because of events, into really big issues. The illegal immigration issue became a big issue as Trump highlighted murder victims of illegal immigrations immediately after an illegal immigrant killed a young woman in San Francisco.

The latest Trump issue to go big after Trump defended the Second Amendment to an MSNBC reporter? Gun free zones in light of the Chattanooga shootings. Trump gets it right again:

Donald Trump was unfortunately proven right on another one of his top issues Thursday: “gun free zones” at military bases.

There are indications that Thursday’s shooting at two military bases in Chattanooga, Tenn., occurred at or near “gun free zones.”

In an interview with the website AmmoLand.com, Trump decried the zones on military bases, suggesting that they left highly-trained gun operators without a weapon to fire at attackers, with the exception of military police.

A photo from the scene taken from a local Fox station showed 29 bullet holes around a “gun free zone” sign.

Here’s our earlier story:

Pistol-packing GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump ripped a policy implemented by former President Bill Clinton making military bases “gun free zones,” declaring that as president bases would no longer be defenseless against terror attacks.

As Commander-in-Chief, I would mandate that soldiers remain armed and on alert at our military bases.” he told the website Ammoland.com.

Trump continues to drive the issues lawnmower landscape and that leads to the desperate attacks against him.



There is rationality which drives the fear of Trump from Jeb Bush:

Jeb Bush girds for debate smackdown with Donald Trump

The former Florida governor is bracing for the possibility of a presidential debate pile-on. [snip]

Gaming out how Trump — a bombastic figure who refuses to abide by the usual rules of political decorum — will present himself has become a growing subject of speculation in Bush’s world. During one recent phone call with a political ally, Bush pointedly asked about the surging real estate mogul. What, the friend recalled the former governor wondering out loud, was behind Trump’s antics, and what was he trying to accomplish?

“Trump presents a challenge for Bush because he’s a hand grenade,” said Nelson Warfield, a longtime Republican strategist who has prepared a number of candidates for debates. “His people understand that and will be prepared for anything that comes their way.”

As the Aug. 6 debate grows closer, some Republicans are relishing the prospect of Trump tearing the bark off the former governor — or, at the very least, trying to trip him up. “Trump has one target and one target only,” said an adviser to a rival GOP candidate. “He’s going to bring a lawn mower for Bush.”

Donald Trump’s biggest enemy? It’s not his own mouth as some would believe. Drug kingpin “El Chapo”. You can’t ask for a bigger headliner enemy than a recently escaped Mexican drug warlord “El Chapo” if you’re Donald Trump.

So why all the desperation about Donald Trump? Remember the Donald Trump boast about winning and getting the Latino vote? There’s some news from Nevada:

Nevada State Polling Shows Donald Trump Crushing Field – Including Massive Support From Latinos…

Washington, D.C., July 16, 2015 – One America News Network, “OAN”, a credible source for 24/7 national and international news, released today its most recent 2016 Republican and Democratic Presidential Polling Results for Nevada conducted by Gravis Marketing.

The results show that GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump has a commanding lead of 27.7%, with recently announced Presidential Candidate Scott Walker in second with 15%. In third is Ben Carson with 7.8% with Jeb Bush a point behind at 6.8%. Marco Rubio rounds out the top five with 5.4%. Undecided voters remain high at just over 20%.

With polled Hispanics, Presidential Candidate Trump received 31.4%, higher than his overall performance of 27.7%. The only other Presidential Candidate to receive double digit support by Hispanics is Scott Walker with 11.4%.

Whatever the merits, or shortcomings of such a poll, it is feeding the fear of Donald Trump. The fear leads to desperation.

August 6 gets more interesting with every passing day.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2015/07/black-lives-matter-protesters-flummox-omalley-sanders-120319.html?hp=l1_3

    PHOENIX — When Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders took the stage at Saturday’s Netroots Nation forum here in Arizona, things didn’t go exactly as planned.

    Both Democratic presidential candidates were supposed to sit down with activist and journalist Jose Antonio Vargas to talk about immigration. Instead, they got shouted down.

    O’Malley, the former Maryland governor, was up first, and his forum was hijacked by protesters who said they were from the “Black Lives Matter” movement. They moved toward the stage, chanting, “What side are you on? Black people! What side are you on?”

    Two of the activists climbed onto the stage and seized the microphones as O’Malley and Vargas stood by patiently.

    “It’s not like we like shutting shit down but we have to,” activist Patrisse Cullors said. “We are tired of being interrupted.”

    But shutting things down is what they did.

    O’Malley was repeatedly drowned out by chanting protesters who wanted to discuss police brutality against black Americans. When O’Malley finally did get a chance to respond, they kept shouting.

    “I believe every police department in America should have to report in an open and transparent way all police-involved shootings, all discourtesy complaints, all brutality complaints,” O’Malley, a former Baltimore mayor, said. Asked by Vargas about civilian review boards, O’Malley added, “all departments should have civilian review boards.”

    That was roughly as specific as the protesters allowed O’Malley to get. He went on to say, awkwardly, “black lives matter, white lives matter, all lives matter,” sparking loud boos.

    O’Malley repeated the phrase and the audience kept booing. Vargas tried to quiet the crowd down, but time was up anyway.

    “Unfortunately, Senator Sanders is waiting out there,” Vargas said.

    “We just started,” O’Malley quipped.

    It started off well: Sanders supporters waved “Bernie” signs in the air as the independent Vermont senator took the stage, hoping to talk about economic policy and bash Republicans.

    He got chaos instead.

    “Here’s the serious issue: We live in a nation in which to a significant degree media is controlled by large multinational corporations. We live in a nation in which 95 percent of talk radio is right wing, including in areas where Republicans have almost no support,” Sanders began.

    The protesters kept shouting, forcing Sanders to address there [sic] concerns. [snip]

    The protesters began shouting again when Sanders tried to pivot back to discussing Wall Street greed and economic inequality. At one point, Sanders offered a deviation from his usual talking points: “Black people are dying in this country because we have a criminal justice system that is out of control,” he said.

    Vargas tried to pepper the Vermont senator with immigration questions, but the chants once again threatened to drown them out. At one point, Sanders’ frustration showed. “Black lives of course matter, but I have spent 50 years of my life fighting for civil rights and if you don’t want me to be here that’s OK,” he said.

    Smartest thing Hillary has done is Trump these kooks with a non-appearance.

    A Silver Screen Classic, already nominated for 10 Academy Awards

    Producer: Trotsky

    Musical Score: Tomorrow Belongs To Me

    Prelude:

    Out with the bad air, i.e. working class whites, seniors, patriotic blacks and law abiding hispanics.

    In with the good air, i.e. bots, nijas, anachists, drug dealers, illegals, black radicals, green terrorists, code pink, open borders jackals–in sum, a beautiful tapestry of malcontents yearning to breathe free and this country, so we can all be as miserable as they are.

  3. Trump’s problem is that he is far too thin-skinned for politics. Whenever anyone challenges him, he lashes out with personal attacks. There is so much to go after McCain for when it comes to policy and capitulation in Washington. There’s no reason to go after his military service. Trump was attacked and he couldn’t keep himself from blustering, “yeah, well your mudda wears Army boots….”

    McCain’s not even running. Why take the bait from him? It’s a serious lack of discipline.

    Obama collecting personal data for a secret race database

    A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.”

    Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are furiously mining data on their health, home loans, credit cards, places of work, neighborhoods, even how their kids are disciplined in school — all to document “inequalities” between minorities and whites.

    This Orwellian-style stockpile of statistics includes a vast and permanent network of discrimination databases, which Obama already is using to make “disparate impact” cases against: banks that don’t make enough prime loans to minorities; schools that suspend too many blacks; cities that don’t offer enough Section 8 and other low-income housing for minorities; and employers who turn down African-Americans for jobs due to criminal backgrounds.

    Big Brother Barack wants the databases operational before he leaves office, and much of the data in them will be posted online.

    So civil-rights attorneys and urban activist groups will be able to exploit them to show patterns of “racial disparities” and “segregation,” even if no other evidence of discrimination exists.

  7. The Trump Transcript:

    TRUMP: Let’s take John McCain. I’m in Phoenix. We have a meeting that’s going to have 500 people at the Biltmore Hotel. We get a call from the hotel, it’s turmoil. Thousands and thousands of people are showing up, three, four days before. They’re pitching tents on the hotel grass. The hotel says we can’t handle this– hold on, this is a story I’m going to tell– we move it to the convention center. We have 15,000 people. John, the biggest one ever, bigger than Bernie Sanders, bigger than a– 15,000 people showed up to hear me speak. Bigger than anybody. And everybody knows it.

    A beautiful day, with incredible people that were wonderful, great Americans, I will tell you. John McCain goes: ‘Oh boy, Trump makes my life difficult. He had 15,000 crazies show up– crazies.’ You see, he called them all crazy. I said, they weren’t crazy. They were great Americans. These people– if you would have seen these people– I know what crazy is. I know all about crazy. These weren’t crazy. So he insulted me, and he insulted everybody in that room, and I said somebody should run against John McCain, who has been, you know, in my opinion, not so hot. And I supported him, I supported him for president. I raised a million dollars for him, that’s a lot of money. I supported him. He lost. He let us down. But, you know, he lost. So I’ve never liked him as much after that because I don’t like losers.

    [audience laughs, Frank, the interviewer interrupts]

    TRUMP: But–

    [Frank interrupts]

    TRUMP: Frank, Frank, Frank, let me get to it. He hit me–

    FRANK: He’s a war hero–

    TRUMP: He’s not a war hero–

    FRANK [interrupting]: He’s a war hero–

    TRUMP: He’s a war hero–

    Frank: [interrupting] Five and half years–

    TRUMP: He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured, okay? I hate to tell you–

    FRANK [interrupting]: He’s a war hero, did you hear that?

    TRUMP: He’s a war hero because he was captured, okay? And you can have– and I believe– Perhaps he’s a war hero, but right now he’s said some very bad things about a lot of people. So what I said is, John McCain, I disagree with him because these people aren’t crazy, AND, very importantly– and I speak the truth– he graduated the last in his class at Annapolis. So I said– nobody knows that– I said he graduated last, or second to last, he graduated last in his class at Annapolis. And he was upset. And I said why, for telling the truth? See, you’re not supposed to say that somebody graduated last, or second to last in their class because you’re supposed to be like Frank says, very nice. Folks, I want to make America great again. We want to get down to brass tacks. We don’t want to listen to his [Frank’s] stuff, with being politically correct, and everything has to–

    We have a lot of work to do. Frank, the other day Hillary Clinton got up and she said, ‘I didn’t like Mr. Trump’s tone.’ We have people, Christians, having their heads cut off in the Middle East. We have people dying all over the border that– where I was right, 100% right, we have all this like medieval times, and she says, ‘I didn’t like his tone.’ And you know who else said that? Jeb Bush. ‘I didn’t like his tone.’ What has that got to with– ? We want results. This group [gestures to audience] we want results [loud cheers]. We don’t want tone.

  8. I think Trump should have avoided the war hero reference and just pointed out that McCain is an American hero, but a political loser who biggest loss was running a horrible campaign enabling Obama to becoming President(sadly, Hillary could be accused of the same).

    Absolutely, admin!

    The NutKooks, (‘Nutroots’ sounds like NutSa#k and it is disgusting)…convention tuned into ‘Only black lives matter’ ciaos…and the far left less-than-minor candidates, ended up kicked in the face under the high school bleachers.

    This scenario, pretty much represents the state of the Dim. party…so Hillary had better start breaking the Hell away from these crackpots and racists.

    Trump has to curb some of his expressions, calling anyone that pokes a finger at him, the “worst”, starts to lose effect when that word is pinned on more than one person.

    If he claims Hillary will be the worst President, no one else could possibly hold that claim, there can’t be two ‘worst’…and the comment starts to sound like a verbal tantrum and ineffective.

  11. he graduated last in his class at Annapolis.
    ———
    That is also true.

    He was the “anchor man”.

    That’s what they call the graduate who finishes at the very bottom of his graduating class

    Based on peer review, leadership, grades, character and aptitude for service.

    If his father and grandfather had not both been academy graduates, and admirals, he probably would have been bounced.

    He had a reputation of being an asshole.

    He walked by and saw that I was watching a Trump video, Admin posted above, knows that I have been talking about Trump for the past couple of years, and said, “Has the Hillary blog turned into a Trump blog now?”

    I told him that it kinda has, in the sense that Hillary has been somewhat quiet and is mainly supporting Obama’s terrible policies, while Trump is saying a lot of the things we want Hillary to be saying…………

    His mistake?

    He should have covered himself with prison tatoos from head to toe, taken off his shirt, and pulled out a joint.

    Then he would have fit right in.

    Instead, he shows up in what appears to be a Brooksbrothers suit, and a leather briefcase.

    For all I know, he probably borrowed the diamond stick pin from Corker and the crimson appalet.

    Revolutionaries have a habit of turning on each other with accusations of being less committed to their extremist ideology. A modern day example is the Islamic State. Another example going back into history is the genocidal Khmer Rouge in the middle to late 1970’s, which started purging and killing each other after taking over Cambodia before they got into a losing war with Vietnam.

    Thank you.

    When the Post resorts to blatant lies such as this, it is clear that they feel threatened by the Trump candidacy, because he rocks the corrupt political class of which they are an integral part. As any bombardier well tell you, when you draw flack like this, you know you are over the right target. The truth cannot help them, so they are forced to make it up. How can anyone respect a newspaper that deals in lies and blatant falsehoods. The honest answer is, you cannot trust anything they say. They are no good.

  24. ADMIN: THIS IS IMPORTANT:

    I have noticed that it is customary for you to write an article, and then update it as new information comes in that amplifies and/or corroborates what you have said.

    What Tony Stark posted above deserves to occupy a similar place of prominence to this article. As noted, Sharyl Attkisson has fact checked the brohaha over Trump’s comments about McCain’s status as a “war hero” after McCain attacked him and his supporters, meaning us, as being crazies.

    If all the facts about his detention were on the table, his status as a war hero might well be open to challenge. At the very least, there is circumstantial evidence to the contrary. I have made mention of it, and I have no motive to fabricate. That said, there is no particular reason to litigate the issue. Suffice it to say he is a war monument—like the 200 canyons which were captured by Napoleon and melted down into a bronze statue which now adorns a prominent Paris boulevard, and leave it at that.

    Far more important is to take the measure of the man as he stands today. The record will show that he is a failed presidential candidate, a Washington insider, an influence peddler, a video game player during critical hearings, and a RINO crank who has yet to realize that he lost the all important 2008 electin.

    It gets back to something Art Linkletter said: kids say the darndest things. That is true of course, but so do old cranks like McCain. And, in this case, like others before it he did. And the stupid thing he said started this fight. And yet, the WashPo article makes absolutely no mention of it. In other words, it takes Trumps’s comments out of context.

    Then, it proceeds to misstate what he did say, which is an even graver offense. Sharyl calls them on this, and gives them two devils. On the issue of media malpractice they earn a solid D. The worst part of it is, given their leverage they have with media outlets in this country, this lie, and I will explain in due course why it is a lie, as opposed to a negligent act, will be repeated ad infinitum.

    But before I do so, let me note how ironic it is that the very newspaper that led the fight to shut down our war effort in Southeast Asia, like its sister publication NYT was more inclined to call Ho Chi Min a hero, and the service men who answered the call of the country of whom McCain was merely one, baby killers. Only now, does WashPo step forward to defend the honor of a presumed war hero.

    Have they repented their wicked wicked ways, have they found Jesus, or more likely Thor, are they scared shitless that the feckless policies of Obama, which they have backed to the hilt may suddenly and unexpectedly rain on their parade. Or, are they simply part of the Washington establishment keen to divert public attention from the abject failures of the political class, and the false narrative they have been promoting to cover their tax.

    The question is are the just keen to kill Trump, or are they keen to kill his narrative as well. That Cruz espouses the same narrative, but is more diplomatic in the way he articulates it does not mean they will cross him off their hit parade. On the contrary, if he falls then Trump is next. That is because they must maintain the status quo in order to protect their community, and continue the process of centralizing all political power in their city. And to that end, they will tell any lie

    This article provides a rare opportunity to cut the legs out from under them. It should be done with all deliberate speed. Therefore, I would respectfully that you post an update with this information. It goes to the heart of your elegant and sustained argument about the role of the press in distorting the truth in order to control candidates, and shape the political debate to their own ends, which diverts public attention from the lethal problems we face as a nation.

  25. Correction: if Trump falls, Cruz will be next on the big media hit parade, because they cannot brook criticism of the track record of failure manifested by our political class, and the false narrative they have been promoting to the American People. If saying so makes me crazy according to an old crank, then all I can say is, so be it.

  26. Donald will be live on This Week with S in a few moments

    ****************************

    imho…Donald…don’t waste your time with personal attacks that drown out your message…

  27. @admin, that netroots video is beyond disturbing. Whoever is funding this Black lives matter and other such things are not the constructive force even Black people need to make their lives better. Unfortunately Hillary will pander to these groups and they can only rise in power if she becomes president. Democratic party is fucked up beyond repair. Good for O’Malley to sticking to the line that white lives matter and all lives matter. I am hoping for a miracle, a sane Republican to get elected to bring balance and perspective into the chaos left behind by Obama.

  28. Let me expand on a single point noted above: the idea that big media will tell any lie they need to in order to promote their narrative.

    My dad had a client who was a German Jew who fled from the Holocaust to South Africa during the 1930s. My mom and dad were having dinner with him at what was then Seattle’s swankiest restaurant, Canlis. This guy was a very tough businessman but he liked my dad. Nevertheless he was a client, and he had to be approached carefully, because he was quick to take umbrage. When he was amused he would turn to his wife Irma and tell her give the boy a cigar. When they sat down to dinner, my dad made mention of a story published by the NYT which documented in haec verba the gory details of the wholesale slaughter of black villagers by the white south African police, who were mostly Afrikaners. Whereupon this gentleman, no stranger to Holocausts himself, raised his hand in the air, shook his head and said: Don . . . it never happened. This was in the 1950s and even then the NYT narrative was seeking to upend the white regime.

    Years later I got to know a South African policeman who emigrated to the United States. He told a similar tale. During the 1970s it must have been he was a security officer charged with protecting political figures from assassination. In those days, it was common to see black policeman murdered, their bodies hung on telephone polls with an ANC placard attached to their corpses. NYT flooded the country with reporters seeking to promote their narrative, just as they flooded Anchorage with reporters seeking to dig up dirt on Sarah Palin, and rented a house adjacent to hers and equipped it with surveillance equipment.

    One day this South African policeman was dispatched to an area where people were being killed en masse. There are 26 tribes indigenous to South Africa and they did not always get along. And on this particular day, the dead bodies were piling up. He was asked to bring a visitor, observer with him to survey the carnage which he did. This visitor/observer happened to be a prominent journalist with the NYT. When the guns grew silent, this journalist asked him to take him down to the bodies, before they were burned. He was not keen to do this, but he obeyed. When he got down there the reporter asked him to get out of their jeep and stand beside the bodies with his gun. He smelled a rat, and refused. Whereupon the journalist made a similar request to another officer who gladly obliged. A picture was taken.

    Next morning that picture appeared on the front page of the New York Times, and the article written by their journalist blamed this mini holocust on the South African police, including one who was standing beside the bodies posing with his gun and smiling for the cameras.

    Oh, there have been many other example where big media invents facts to promote their narrative. The adage you are entitled to your own opinions but not your own facts means nothing to them. The only difference between the journalists who promoted those lies, and others is a difference in degree. For them, and more particularly their editors, the truth be damend the narrative is all that matters. And, as Sharyl Attkison has shown us, they are up to their old tricks where the manufactured narrative about Donald and McCain is concerned.

  29. Good for O’Malley to sticking to the line that white lives

    Which went down like a lead balloon with those cases of arrested development.

  30. …sorry to say pm317…O’Malley already backtracked and essentially apologized

    http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/18/politics/martin-omalley-all-lives-matter/

    snip

    Later that day, O’Malley apologized for using the phrase in that context if it was perceived that he was minimizing the importance of blacks killed by police.

    I meant no disrespect,” O’Malley said in an interview on This Week in Blackness, a digital show. “That was a mistake on my part and I meant no disrespect. I did not mean to be insensitive in any way or communicate that I did not understand the tremendous passion, commitment and feeling and depth of feeling that all of us should be attaching to this issue.”

    Judith Butler, a philosopher at the University of California, Berkeley, recently explained why some find it offensive to respond to the “Black Lives Matter” movement with the “all lives matter.”

    “When some people rejoin with ‘All Lives Matter’ they misunderstand the problem, but not because their message is untrue. It is true that all lives matter, but it is equally true that not all lives are understood to matter, which is precisely why it is most important to name the lives that have not mattered, and are struggling to matter in the way they deserve,” Butler said in an interview with The New York Times. “If we jump too quickly to the universal formulation, ‘all lives matter,’ then we miss the fact that black people have not yet been included in the idea of ‘all lives.'”

    **********************************

    I would like to ask them…

    do black lives matter when other blacks kill them?

    do white lives matter when blacks kill them?

    all innocent lives matter…period…no free passes on killing anyone…

  31. …a big test coming up for Dems…how Dim are they?

    If they support this Iran deal I do not think I can support them in the next election cycle…the more I learn about this deal the more frightening and absolutely stupid and dangerous it becomes…

    and support it why? for O’s legacy…who will be long gone when the dangersous enforcement is required…he will be golfing while Iran deceives…and it will be somenone’s else problem…

    hell no…no…no…

  32. @S.. yeah, I can believe it. He was down to mumbling that line even in the video towards the end. LOL. This makes my point. We need a clean break from Obama and his residual shenanigans. Can Hillary do it? I have not seen any signs of it yet.

  33. pm317…

    as Admin likes to define it…mush…that’s what we get from dems…and rips…mush

    Donald is mushless…he needs to self edit a bit so he does not step over his own message that so many people are resonating towards…

    Donald…stay on message…and just shrug off the personal attacks coming your way…

    find a phrase that says “you don’t let the small stuff bother you…you are focused on “Making America Great Again”…don’t take the bait…Stay on Message…

    **********

    …on a humorous side…I like how Donald says to Martha Radditz that everyone attacks him…and he doesn’t hear her defending or protecting him…

    he says “everyone goes after his hair…and he doesn’t hear her protecting him”

    …just a little chuckle…

  34. “Kook on Kook violence” – I love it! Laughing too hard to write. Obviously, this isn’t the context, but if you just think of the phrase with no context…… the term conjures mental images of pasty faced geeks, glasses askew, slapping at each other – their wrists restricted by Carpel Tunnel braces. No weapons, of course – Heaven forbid. No politically incorrect terminology is allowed. Like two Kleenexes fighting.

    Sounds like the slug is setting up the race card as his excuse for his failed administration. Considering his Campaign contribution database and his economic numbers, the databases will have a credibility problem. They furthermore are a double edged sword. If these same databases do not include information on gender, they cannot be validated. I think that is where the most glaring discrepancies will occur. If they try to dismiss them, then they will have trouble with any case for race.

    This leads me to mention a discussion I had about men and women drivers. Men claim they are better drivers than women because they get fewer traffic citations.
    http://www.statcrunch.com/5.0/viewreport.php?reportid=39519

    So is that because women are worse drivers than men or because most police officers are male? Why do men have higher car insurance rates than women? It is because they have more accidents with fatalities than women. Way more. The claim is that men dive more miles than women but even adjusting for those statistics, men kill more people on the highways, even on a per mile driven basis.

    So who are the better drivers, men or women?

    Are women discriminated against by male traffic cops?

  39. I’m always suspicious when the Big Pharma mafia is involved…….too many coincidences for my liking…..would not surprise me at all.

    http://thefreethoughtproject.com/5-holistic-heath-doctors-dead-5-missing-month-run-ins-feds/#YxtJcp8xkybJHqF0.01

    Over the past months, five natural health doctors have either mysteriously died or been intentionally killed, with another five having gone missing under unexplained circumstances.

    As we previously reported, the curious deaths began on June 19, when Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, a renowned autism researcher from Florida, now practicing in Georgia, was found with a gunshot wound to his chest. Police were quick to claim that the gunshot wound was self-inflicted, ruling the death a suicide almost immediately.

    The doctor’s family suspects foul play with family members setting up a donation page in an effort “To find the answers to the many questions leading up to the death of Dr Bradstreet, including an exhaustive investigation into the possibility of foul play.”

    The next suspicious death came only days later, on Father’s Day, June 21, when Dr. Bruce Hedendal, DC Ph.D., of the Miami area, was found slumped over in his car with no indication as to a cause of death. The details regarding Hedendal’s death are even murkier than that of Bradstreet, with very few details being released. Hedendal was reported to be extremely fit and had actually been doing an athletic event earlier in the day before being found dead.

    Raising the level of suspicion surrounding these doctor’s deaths was the fact that both had previously run into problems with the feds due to their holistic treatments of patients. Just weeks prior to Bradstreet’s death, his office was raided by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

    On the same day that Hedendal’s body was found, Dr. Baron Holt DC was found dead in Florida. Holt died unexpectedly while on a trip to Jacksonville, Fla.

    Although the 33-year-old Holt had been struggling with recent health issues, none were thought to be life-threatening by loved ones, according to The News & Observer. The report by the Observer indicated that the family is currently awaiting the results of an autopsy report.

    As if three dead doctors in the same field, in same region of the country, and in such a short time span didn’t already raise red flags, Dr. Teresa Sievers, another natural health doctor from Florida, was brutally murdered in her home on June 29.

    Co-workers have said that she was known as the “Mother Teresa of South Florida.” Authorities investigating the case have stated that this was not a random attack, but a targeted event and that when the details are revealed “books and movies will be written about it.”

    Then on July 1st, Lisa Riley DO, 34, residing in Lee County, Georgia, was found murdered in her home, with a gunshot wound to the head. Her husband was originally suspected, as he made the call to 911 to report her death, but many feel as though he’s being framed. Investigators have called her death mysterious.

    A number of doctors have also gone missing according to HealthNutNews:

    June 26th, Dr. Patrick Fitzpatrick MD goes missing. He was traveling from North Dakota to neighboring Montana (which he did often as his son lived in Montana) and his truck and trailer were found on the side of the road. Searches have expanded, but authorities say it’s like he vanished without a trace.

    June 29th, Jefferey Whiteside MD a pulmonologist went missing when he simply “walked away.” Dr Whiteside, known for his successful treatment of lung cancer, disappeared in Door County Wisconsin while vacationing with family. They say he was on foot and had no vehicle and numerous reports call it “mysterious” saying he too vanished without a trace. They’ve been searching now 2 weeks and even colleagues have joined in (along with many bloodhounds, drones search parties and helicopters) but not a shred of evidence in 2 weeks.

    On the same day Dr. Bradstreet’s body was found, June 19, three medical professionals along a remote stretch of highway in Mexico’s southwest Guerrero state vanished without a trace. Authorities insisted that the men had been killed, but offered no credible evidence to back up the claim.

    The seemingly systemic nature in which natural doctors are ending up either missing or dead raises serious questions as to whether some entity or person is possibly orchestrating these events. With billions of dollars at stake, what lengths would big pharma go to in an effort to silence those that share their knowledge of natural cures with the public?

    It seems that being a holistic health care provider that promotes natural health can now be dangerous to ones own health!

    Did he perchance vote for Obama in 2008 and/or 12.

    That will determine whether or not I feel sorry for him.

    I pay $520 per month for minimum coverage and a $5000 deductible.

    Mine went up 40% 2 years ago thank to Obama.

    Did I fume over this?

    Noooooo. I’ve got klass.

    I told myself it was a small price to pay for having our first black president.

    Fortunately, I got my brain lobotomy before my insurance went through the roof.

  43. I love the Bernie tweets, Admin. Cracking up!!

    I heard on some talk radio show last week a conservative political analyst discussing the fact that Jews have supported O so heavily despite the anti-Israel attitude this administration has consistently displayed – except for that campaign rally in FL when he pretended to be pro-Israel. This commentator said that most Jews held socialistic political views. He cited a presidential primary from decades ago when large numbers of them voted for the Socialist Party candidate, and had other statistics that were supposed to support this view. I did not catch his name, and listened for only a few minutes, but his theory was that based on past voting records and the fact that Jewish voters were all about Barack, it would not be surprising if the majority of them supported Bernie in the Dim Primary.

    Not saying that I buy into his reasoning, but maybe Hillary had better spend a lot of quality campaign time in FL after all.

  44. Under the ACA my premium initially was less than my prior carrier(which I wanted to keep , but it was made virtually impossible), but increased 26% the first year to $879.19 just for me . I am waiting to receive the new rates this September.

  45. As Ann Coulter so succinctly put it, “Trump’s candidacy divides the elites from the people more than anything I’ve seen.” The populace has taken a shine to Trump because his statements on illegal immigration speak for them and their real life experience. The elite’s candidates are mortified that their glass menagerie is being shattered.

    Historically, this is exactly when populist leaders emerge on the political stage. Populists are a reliable sign of a broken political feedback system. When the populace knows the situation is in extremis, and they receive neither an ear nor a megaphone to be heard, populists are society’s hot backup to amplify the people’s stifled voices, usually with varying levels of distortion.

    The populace’s frustration and anger manifest themselves in the populist’s emotional message. Trump’s formulaic appearance is as predictable and unpreventable as gravity. In a world of monumentally expensive campaigns, Trump’s difference is that he comes from the elite, much as FDR did. As a voice for those unheard, this is good.

    Trump’s megaphone, in his right to free speech, has done a service to the US. He has flushed out a skewed propaganda machine at the Huffington Post that won’t cover real news. Mr Trump is NEWS. The RINO Right should not attempt the Left’s playbook for silencing the free speech. Trump has admirably gone after illegal immigration, and some of his criticisms of Senator McCain have hit the mark, as well. If Mr. Trump stays in the race, the diversity and accuracy of the discourse will increase with some amplified overshoot.

    The best way to attenuate Mr. Trump’s resonating voice is to find other candidates that voice reasonable solutions to the real problems Mr. Trump has had the audacity to expose.

    Trump is riding the “we are all fed up” factor and they are going to get increasingly fed up as this whole campaign evolves…

  47. SAN FRANCISCO IS ONE SICK CITY

    Sanctuary cities are secessionist, and predicated on cowardice — and the odds. The elites that draft such laws assume, occasionally erroneously, that they and their own are probably immune from the consequences of their own ideology, given that their schools, their neighborhoods, and their transportation are more likely to be shielded from those who arrive illegally and without any federal audit of their backgrounds. They assume that the law can become negotiable because a rising ethnic political force, frozen in amber, will always supposedly vote along perceived ethnic lines and might reward them for their past nullification, an assumption, if true for the present, is by no means assured for the future. The cost — legal, criminal, social — of illegal aliens so often falls inordinately upon the middle class Latino community, which is already beginning to resent open borders.

    http://pjmedia.com/victordavishanson/san-francisco-one-sick-sanctuary-city/

    Let us be honest, San Francisco’s legal nullification is not an act of racial blindness and fairness under the law, but one of political pandering, ethnic chauvinism and misplaced liberal narcissism. Finally, imagine if felon, parolee, fraud, and detainee Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez had been a non-Hispanic, but a seven-time paroled felon, who had been previously deported, again to take a hypothetical example, back home to South Africa five times for immigration violations — say, someone named a politically-incorrect Gert Kruger. Would he have been let go by city authorities and kept shielded from federal officers — given that his release would resonate no politically-correct policy, and even might have been interpreted as dangerous to community and illiberal to boot?

    San Francisco has become one sick city.

    Unfortunately, I fear we will see just how sick as the saga of the killer Francisco Lopez and the “one tiny thing” of Kate Steinle’s demise winds it way through a sanctuary city’s courts.

  48. McCain a war hero???

    These two comments, the first from someone at Breitbart, the second from streiff @ Red State echo and amplify the skepticism I expressed previously and thus beg the ultimate question as to whether McCain’s brand of a war hero is more myth than reality.

    1. As one who has had a longstanding 43-year relationship with the Naval Academy and the Navy, I have found that many comrades who likely should have supported (their classmate) McCain against Obama in their 2008 presidential race were either lesser of two evils McCain voters or sat out the election entirely, such as myself.

    2. John McCain’s service has been questioned by a hundreds of thousands of people. There are some who claim he was a stool pigeon for the North Vietnamese. Some claim he was an incompetent pilot. A few claim he personally set off the disastrous fire on the USS Forrestal.

    Back in 2000, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) 7%, then a washed-up comic, had this to say: I have tremendous respect for McCain but I don’t buy the war hero thing. Anybody can be captured. I thought the idea was to capture them. As far as I’m concerned he sat out the war.

  49. We now have the jury verdict on the efficacy of Robert’s strategy to protect the dignity of the court by throwing the Constitution under the bus. A new poll taken in the aftermath of his rulings shows that 3 out of 5 Americans favor an end to life long tenure for justices, and only 1 out of 5 favor retention. His decision to immerse himself in the political debate, when the country is equally divided, had turned him and his colleagues into partisans, and as such they should be subject to periodic elections to ensure that they do not become a bevy of platonic guardians, and per force oligarchs. That being the case, Robert’s institutional strategy has backfired.

    https://ca.news.yahoo.com/americans-favor-supreme-court-term-limits-reuters-ipsos-055529256.html

  50. The word on the street is that the fed will begin the process of raising interest rates starting in September. In stable times, one could assume that the rise in interest rates has already been factored into the price of stocks, bonds, home mortgages, and it will be modest and incremental to begin with so as not to disturb these markets. But there is a major flaw in this line of thinking. This is not a normal investment environment. Why not? Because for several years, current interest rates are about zero, and Germany has issued a long term bond which makes the principle worth less than it was at the beginning of the term. Consequently, any raise in interest rates may send shock waves through the system, and if something else happens as well during this same period, well, you know. . . . I am out of the market now, and I do not think this is a good time to get back in.

  51. Is anyone here in a state of mind to remind me what BO had to say about McCain in 2008? I’ve forgotten the specifics, but it had to do with mocking JM’s limited arm movement.

    My question was prompted by this:
    snip President Obama has always “expressed his admiration and deep respect for McCain’s heroism,” snip
    http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/248504-white-house-says-trump-owes-vets-an-apology and with a previous knowledge of this:

    California may let undocumented immigrants buy Obamacare

    Uniting the two highly combustible issues of Obamacare and immigration could reignite a fierce health-care reform controversy.

    California lawmakers and activists are spearheading a first-in-the-nation plan to let undocumented immigrants buy Obamacare health insurance.

    Supporters say the California proposal, which would need federal approval and couldn’t start until 2017, is the next logical step in expanding health insurance to a population that was intentionally excluded from the president’s health-care law. But uniting the two highly combustible issues of Obamacare and immigration could reignite a fierce health-care reform controversy.

    There’s no guarantee the California plan still winding through the state’s legislature will succeed, even with Democrats in control of the statehouse, the governor’s mansion and the White House. California Gov. Jerry Brown isn’t commenting on the legislation, which has been approved by the state Senate but not by the Assembly. But just last month, Brown agreed to spend millions in state dollars to provide health care to undocumented children, mirroring similar efforts in a handful of other liberal states.

    For the Obama administration, the California effort could mark the return of a sore point in the early days of the Obamacare debate. Republicans never trusted Democrats’ repeated assurances while the law was being drafted that the Affordable Care Act wouldn’t cover undocumented immigrants. That built up to Rep. Joe Wilson’s infamous “You lie!” moment, when the South Carolina Republican interrupted President Barack Obama’s 2009 health care address to Congress.

    National anti-immigration forces are taking note of the bill in California, home to the country’s largest population of undocumented immigrants. To Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which was a leading voice against the comprehensive immigration reform bill that stalled in Washington two years ago, the California proposal signals a weakening in enforcement of immigration laws.

    “A bill like this is a camel’s nose. If you see a camel’s nose under the tent, it’s not too long before the whole camel will be in the tent,” he said. “Or the tent will be on the ground.”

    I heard that one too.

    I wonder whether it is true.

    If it is then he should trade in his easy rider motorcyle.

    Why pray tell must an sepetenerian drive around the beltway in a Nazi helmut

    An arrow through his skull and the bars above his head?

    It makes about as much sense as playing video poker during congressional hearings

    Capitulating to Obama, throwing open our borders and calling those who do not agree with him crazies.

    (Note: if they are then god save the queen from those who agree with him)

    Getting back to computers however, I do not see a problem here.

    But assuming arguendo that I am wrong, then there is an obvious solution:

    Lower the handlebars.

    And drop a little napalm.

    While laughing diabolically like Dr. Stangelove

    And singing ba ba ba ba ba Iran.

    Remember that little skit.
