Update: War: Chamber of Commerce gearing up to take out conservative incumbents in the House next year. The Chamber of Commerce is winning, or losing? The 2016 elections will decide. The GOP coddles their corporate cronies. Hillary’s economy speech drags her further to the kook left and protection of the crony capitalists on the left. Cruz is trying to sound like Trump, which is smarter than those who attack Trump, but not enough. Trump? Trump haters are beginning to wake up and sound the trumpets:
In fact, this is easy red meat for Donald Trump if he’s inclined to take on the business class he’s a part of. Nothing would build his conservative cred faster than rising to the defense of the people in Congress who are most opposed to open borders and who are now evidently on the electoral menu for corporate America. You can write the script yourself: “Take it from a guy who’s worth $10 billion, a secure border is more important than better margins on labor.”
From every political affiliation, gender, and ethnicity/race – we’re all sounding the Trumpets. We’re all becoming Trumpettes. We notice today very few are talking about the new YouGov poll on Trump which proves he is rising not sinking. TRUMP IS NOW AT 28% and second choice he is at 38%. Why are so few writing about this? Wasn’t the big question earlier this week whether or not Trump was dead or had hit his ceiling? The YouGov poll which is brand new says Trump continues to rise. Both political parties and their hacks are scared of this and so the plan is “keep it quiet.” Watch what happens after August 6.
For the Trump haters we present the dumbest, stupidest, most idiotic anti-Trump article ever published by Big Media: The Danger of a Celebrity President. It’s not an attack on the Obama cult but a defense of Obama and an attack on a certain candidate – so you know how stupid it is.
More cheers for Trump as he attacks Big Media with more than words. Trump has banned the Des Moines Register noosepaper from today’s campaign events. The Register has demanded Trump get out of the race. Screw you Big Media. In America the people decide who stays in and who goes out (until 2008 when Big Media diktated the outcome that is.) Maybe if all GOP candidates and Hillary follow Trump’s lead the Big Media vipers can be put back in their nests.
Ted Cruz on the Senate floor: Mitch McConnell’s a liar and our new majority is a cronyist fraud. We like the speech. But it’s a fail.
Hillary also emitted sounds today in yet another speech about the economy. Hillary looked great. The speech? It’s a fail.
We hate to be so negative but after sharpshooter Trump taking on all comers and Against All Flags insurgency as just about everybody in the left and right establishments tries to bring him down… well lets just say we’re let down.
Why is Hillary’s speech on the economy a fail? You don’t even have to listen to the speech to know there is a strategic flaw. Here’s the speech: Oh, we can’t embed the video we can only provide a link to the speech because HillaryClinton.com does not provide a video of what is supposed to be a big speech. Another fail.
What’s the strategic problem with the speech? Well, if these ideas are so good why doesn’t Obama implement them? Or try to implement them? Why didn’t Obama do them a long time ago? Or, is Hillary in this speech attacking Obama? Is Hillary saying Obama did not do this and she will? That’s the strategic problem. Having tied herself to Obama she now cannot criticize Obama even as she puts out ideas that Obama could implement or at least try to implement but won’t. Why not? Why won’t Obama try to implement these ideas, such as they are?
This is going to be an ongoing problem for Hillary2016. That’s why the best bet, strategically speaking, would have been (as we suggested so long ago) for Hillary to base her campaign on “It’s time for a change.” Instead we are left holding a smelly bag labeled “Stay the course.”
There is another problem with the speech on the substance. Hillary invests a great deal of her time in her speech to Wall Street and assorted mumbo jumbo about investors who invest in stocks for quick profits then get out. We thought the purpose of Wall Street gambling was to make money and a quick buck.
Nowhere in her speech today does Hillary hit the main issue about Wall Street and investing. At no point does Hillary say “Obama economic policies and FED policies force people to throw themselves into the Wall Street cesspool. It’s time for a change.”
Americans who do not want to go near Wall Street are muscled by Obama and FED policies to do just that. Low interest rates help corporations but for someone who wants to keep their money in a safe bank account with compounded interest – low interest rates are a disaster. Hillary doesn’t mention this. Trillions in wealth shifted to Wall Street titans and from Hillary silence or no recognition this is a problem that her “solutions” exacerbate.
In the Obama economy money in the bank is going to waste. Almost no interest is accrued. If Hillary wants to help the middle class and the poor why not advocate for interest rates that reflect reality? Why not help young people who want to work and save be able to do so without the increased risk of putting money in the Wall Street shark tank? Sure, increased risk via Wall Street investments will potentially bring increased gains, but what if you just want slow, safe, and steady growth? That used to be the preferred economic plan for the poor and middle class. Wall Street was for the swells willing and able to risk their capital.
Instead of helping Americans opt out of the Wall Street casino, Hillary goes on and on about the travails of Wall Street investors and how to squeeze money out of them. Never mind that many of those Wall Street investors are union pension funds and the George Soros types that fund so much of the left infrastructure.
When all is said and done Hillary’s economy speech ignores the extortion against those that have worked and saved money to put in a nice safe bank account. The fail is all the talk about stocks and buy-backs. Where is the plain talk to the American people? Why repudiate the successes of Bill Clinton? Fail.
Ted Cruz also emitted sounds today. He too failed. That’s not to say we did not like his speech. We did. But the Cruz speech was Donald Trump on cruise control. This Trump hating, Cruz hating bit sums it up nicely:
Sample quote: “[This majority] does get things done, but it listens to one and only one voice: That is, the voice of the Washington cartel, of the lobbyists on K Street, of the big money and big corporations.” This guy is talking about his own caucus.
Nominally, this speech is about McConnell’s betrayal of opponents of the Ex-Im bank and his Reid-esque procedural scam to block conservative amendments that could have jeopardized the Iran deal. What it really is, of course, is a campaign commercial for Cruz 2016 aimed at all the Trump voters he covets but who prefer someone (for the moment) who stands outside the political class. This is Cruz’s way of showing them that not only is he willing to throw punches at the establishment too, he hits much harder than Trump does. The unspoken point is, “If you detest Washington and its endless corrupt excrescences, why would you support him instead of me?” Good question. I have no idea.
We have an answer to that good question: Trump is better that Ted because Cruz is part of the system he is complaining about. Fair or unfair that’s why that other guy, Trump, resonates and Cruz just cruises, out of gas, in the breeze.
For anyone who thinks we are being unfair to the Senator from Texas, consider what this kerfuffle was about: Iran and the attempt to block the deal between Obama and his Mullah pals. Um, didn’t Senator Ted Cruz help ensure that the Obama – Persian Empire of Terror deal was approved? Let’s hoist the black flag and bring up Ace of Spades to testify about Iran and the Corker amendment:
Rubio’s offering some bullshit amendments designed to make him appear Strong On Defense but he’s just part of Failure Theater like the rest of them.
Without this bill, Obama needs 67 votes to approve the Iran treaty.
With the bill, the treaty is presumptively approved, and it takes 67 votes to disapprove of the treaty.
And this is Corker’s way of showing he’s “standing up to Obama.”
How? By performing analingus on him?
This is just the latest insult from the Republican Party. All their bullshit is designed to trick conservatives into thinking they’re taking a stance, when in fact they’re voting with the Democrats.
If Corker has good reasons why this treaty should be passed — and it’s plain that he’s a fan, because he’s making up yet more Fake Opposition to pass it — he should say so. [snip]
No, they lie, they pretend they’re opposed to it, and they stage productions of Failure Theater to trick conservatives into thinking they’re opposing it — but are just being outfoxed, by gum! — when in fact they’ve voted in advance to lose on the issue.[snip]
Corker’s bill does not impose limits on Obama; Corker’s bill does not oppose the Iran treaty. [snip]
Without the Corker bill, Obama would need 67 Senate votes to pass his treaty. The treaty dies without the Corker bill.
With the Corker bill, Obama needs only 34 Senate votes to keep his treaty — which is actually passed, beforehand, by the Corker bill.
The treaty passes into law with the Corker bill.
But Corker, McConnell, and the rest of the traitors will Lie To Your Fucking Face that they “did their best” when, once again, another Obama measure is passed by the Senate.
But by gum! They did their best. They fought so hard but they just couldn’t do it.
Here’s how you actually defeat Obama’s treaty:
1. You scrap the Corker bill, which approves of the treaty, then requires a supermajority of 67 to block it it. (Something which will fail.)
2. Then, you vote against the treaty.
Simple, isn’t it? You just vote against the treaty. You don’t create a convoluted process where you first vote for the treaty and then later vote against it — but oh darn! That first vote was the important one!
The fuck with these people.
They are lying to us, they are corrupt as the worst whores of hell, and they are leading this country into destruction.
Do not go gently on this Corker bill.
Let these vile motherfuckers know WE WILL NOT BE LIED TO ANY LONGER.
That was before Trump came on the scene. After Trump, Cruz had the good sense to heed our warnings and that’s why he voted against ObamaTrade. Cruz is one of the better ones when it comes to positioning himself against the establishment but Trump is the reason for the Cruz speech today.
Failure theater is the GOP ploy to advance the GOP even as the country goes to blazes:
He’s calling McConnell a liar. He’s not hinting at it. He says it. Multiple times.
“He brought up his Obamacare amendment… which is a smokescreen, because it’s intended to fail.” [snip]
By the way, I also hear they’ve got a Fake Sanctuary City bill in the works that they will trick conservatives into thinking actually gets rid of sanctuary cities, but in fact institutionalizes them.
It’s all failure theater to help the GOP but at least Ted Cruz wants a ticket to the Trump show. Jeb Bush the Washington Post reports wants to be the “un-Trump”. Jeb Bush as the “un” anything is not a drink anyone wants.
Our advice to all those that want to be Trump or be un-Trump or trump Trump is this: speak English. Speak clear, concise, English. Don’t connive. Don’t plot. Don’t think this is the time to fool the public will well-crafted mumbo jumbo because the Internet and tough talkers like Donald Trump will make your life difficult.
Indeed, take a clue or a few from Donald J. Trump. Attack Big Media. Attack the establishment of the political system in both parties. Everyone running for president should treat Big Media and the Big Two Parties with the contempt Donald Trump does not hide. Tell Big Media and the political parties, “You’re finished” or the voters will tell you “You’re fired.”
