Update: Tables turned: Trump turns cell phone number exposed by Gawker into a campaign ad. That’s the genius, courage, and fighting ethos of Donald Trump in one quick hit. Recall: (1) Lindsey Graham attacks Trump; (2) Trump exposes Graham the hypocrite and gives out the Graham cell phone number; (3) Graham weakly tries for publicity with a comic video of Graham destroying his own cellphone thereby exposing himself as a doormat; (4) Leftist loons at Gawker publish Donald Trump’s cellphone number thinking they have the best of The Donald; (5) Donald Trump makes lemonade out of lemons by thanking Gawker on Twitter and turning his cellphone voicemail message into a campaign ad. Trumpnado ensues.
Trump fights and that’s why he wins.
Pre-debate homework assignment for Hillary2016: compare and contrast Donald Trump campaign strategy to Mitt Romney and John McCain campaign strategies.
What the Hell is happening to this website? We publish more articles in praise of Trump than we write about Hillary. When we write about Hillary it’s mostly to insult Hillary2016. Our comments section is a lucha libre mixed martial arts Thunderdome of fierce, smart opinion sometimes engaged in a mud fight between supporters of candidates other than Hillary – and we allow it! We owe our readers an explanation.
“Recovering Liberal” M. Joseph Sheppard has a clear view of what we are up to. Few others see what we are up to as “constructive” however. So what goes on?
In the 2008 election cycle we declared ourselves a “Big Pink aircraft carrier” launching attacks against Hillary Clinton opponents and wrote only positive articles about Hillary Clinton and Hillary 2008. Our criticisms of Hillary 2008 were couched in terms of what should be done and how problems could be responded to. When our hair was on fire over something particularly stupid (such as the hired boob “leadership” for the South Carolina primary and the clumsy communications shop overall) we relied on our top level friends within the campaign and in the high dollar donor community to communicate our concerns. The contacts we utilized are national household names in politics that everyone on this website would recognize. Our very top, top, top level contacts were as frustrated with Hillary 2008 as we were.
That strategy did not work. Our muted and positively voiced critiques were not paid attention to. So this election cycle we will not repeat our mistakes. This election cycle, we come with a sword.
As the most long lasting pro Hillary Clinton website we want Hillary Clinton to see the many dead canaries littering the coal mine. We allow the sometimes noxious comments in our comments section so that Hillary and Hillary2016 can see how even in bastions of support the walls in support of her campaign are crumbling.
We want Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 to see that it is “time for a change” not time to “stay the course” with Barack Obama‘s treacherous brand of boobery.
With every week, with every passing day Hillary continues to tie herself ever closer to Barack Obama and his destructive policies. We presume this is to get Obama’s political support and to woo the Obama cult. There really is only one word to describe such a mentality, such an assessment of character, such a strategy: STUPID!
Barack Obama will stab Hillary in the back. The only question is when and how. The first knife might be labeled “Joe”. Hillary will get no sympathy from us; Hillary2016 will get neither succor nor support from us if/when Joe Biden at the behest of Barack Obama decides to run for president against Hillary. NONE. If Joe Biden (later Elizabeth Warren or Michelle Obama) runs against Hillary in 2016 Hillary will be getting exactly what she deserves for being so utterly STUPID as to trust Obama.
Biden is ‘Likely’ to run
Joe Biden is leaning strongly toward a 2016 presidential bid, a source close to the vice president tells the Herald — news that is spurring excitement among top Democrats in Massachusetts and early voting states who are worried about front-runner Hillary Clinton’s hefty political baggage and sagging poll numbers.
An adviser close to Biden, who is familiar with the vice president’s exploration process, told the Herald that Biden will “more likely than not” jump into the 2016 race. [snip]
Advisers to Biden have reportedly begun actively reaching out to potential supporters and donors, an effort that gained momentum after the death of Biden’s son, former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, in May. The younger Biden, as well as his brother, Hunter Biden, reportedly had urged their father to jump into the 2016 presidential race.
The conversations between Biden aides and potential supporters reportedly grew out of the condolences and expressions of support to Biden after Beau’s death from brain cancer.
Biden already is the beneficiary of a draft movement, and wouldn’t have to start his campaign from scratch.
“We have staff on the ground in Iowa and New Hampshire, and we are bringing more people on in South Carolina,” said Will Pierce of “Draft Biden 2016,” who said he expects Biden to decide by September.
Joe Biden is the one channeling his dead son to every Big Media outlet that will listen. According to the Big Media outlets whoring for Joe Biden the dead son wanted Joe Biden to run for president in 2016. The living cocaine addict son of Joe Biden also wants Joe to run. Everyone should understand that it is Joe Biden himself pimping himself to Big Media. Of course, when you have a stable with a willing whore, more pimps will pop up:
Close aide to VP’s late son joins Joe Biden 2016 super PAC
WASHINGTON (AP) — A top political aide to Vice President Joe Biden’s late son joined the super PAC working to recruit the elder Biden to run for president on Sunday, lending the group newfound credibility in the midst of fresh signs the vice president’s aides are taking a close look at a 2016 campaign.
Josh Alcorn, a longtime Democratic operative, had been former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden’s top political and fundraising adviser before he died of brain cancer in May. A known commodity in the Biden world, Alcorn raised money for Joe Biden’s 2008 presidential campaign, and also served in the top fundraising role for Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid’s vast political operation.
Will Pierce, who runs the Draft Biden super PAC, said he was thrilled about Alcorn’s move because Joe Biden’s supporters throughout the U.S. “know how close he was to Beau and his family.”
“Josh joining the Draft Biden effort only increases the serious nature of what to date has been an enormously successful effort,” Pierce said late Sunday.
Alcorn’s decision to join the group marks the first clear sign that the close cadre of advisers surrounding the vice president may be taking the fledgling super PAC seriously.
Joe Biden is clearly drunk. The question is on what? Is is moonshine? Is it Hopium? Whatever it is, it is not coffee.
The coffee belongs to another.
Remember the Tea Party? At the height of the Tea Party movement as they scored victory after victory over the GOP establishment certain loons from the left tried to start something called the “Coffee Party” as a response from the left. The “Coffee Party” was a complete fake. Soon after came the Occupy Wall Street fakes. Occupy Wall Street collapsed too. But now, it appears that the fake “Coffee Party” might be resurrected because a caffeine pusher has come to the fore:
Howard Schultz, the chairman and CEO of Starbucks, is being urged to challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Schultz, 62, is getting encouragement from supporters because they believe “the time is right for someone who’s not a political lifer,” New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd said on Saturday. “It may be a tempting proposition.” [snip]
“He has strong opinions, and even position papers, about what he calls the fraying American dream,” writes Dowd, who has long criticized Clinton and former President Bill Clinton.
She referenced the book Schultz co-wrote last year, “For Love of Country: What Our Veterans Can Teach Us About Citizenship, Heroism, and Sacrifice.”
“While he was promoting his book on veterans last year, he honed a message about making government work again and finding ‘authentic, truthful leadership,'” Dowd said.
This is a real neck twister. It was not so long ago, say yesterday, that the left loons denounced Donald Trump as not qualified to be president because he is a political outsider. Now the loony left sells a caffeine cowboy as the savior of the nation? Sorry, we’re not drinking that slop.
We’ll stick with Donald Trump if an outsider is needed.
Donald Trump is doing pretty much everything we have ever advised Hillary to do. In 2008 and now we advised Hillary to take on Big Media. But even as Hillary was under attack by Big Media personalities from certain networks (MSNBC, CNN, NBC) Hillary continued to attend events hosted by these Big Media trolls. Donald Trump? Donald Trump punished the Des Moines Register for their nasty anti-Trump diatribes by banning the Register reporter from a major campaign event. Today Donald Trump refused to attend a Big Media forum because he knows the newspaper host will never endorse him. Will Hillary ever learn from Donald Trump and slap Big Media?
Will Hillary ever learn from Donald Trump? Donald Trump was attacked by the RNC. Trump immediately threatened to run a third party presidential run. The RNC cowered in fear.
We advised Hillary to consider a third party run herself. Our rationale is that the DNC needs Hillary but Hillary does not need the DNC. Did Hillary listen? Was Hillary sharp enough to understand that a threat of this sort from her is more effective than a lot of sweet talk. No. Hillary has not learned a thing.
In 2008 the DNC attacked Hillary repeatedly. Howard Dean pretended not to see nor hear the sexism and misogyny directed against Hillary by Obama and the Obama cult. The DNC trashed Hillary. The party leadership trashed Hillary. Reid, Pelosi, Kennedy, Clyburn, Kerry, McCaskill, all thrashed Hillary. Has Hillary learned a single thing? No. We won’t pretend otherwise. Hillary has not learned a single solitary thing.
I will not miss the deafening, depressing silence of Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean or other leading Democrats, who to my knowledge (with the exception of Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland) haven’t publicly uttered a word of outrage at the unrelenting, sex-based hate that has been hurled at a former first lady and two-term senator from New York. Among those holding their tongues are hundreds of Democrats for whom Clinton has campaigned and raised millions of dollars. Don Imus endured more public ire from the political class when he insulted the Rutgers University women’s basketball team.
Would the silence prevail if Obama’s likeness were put on a tap-dancing doll that was sold at airports? Would the media figures who dole out precious face time to these politicians be such pals if they’d compared Obama with a character in a blaxploitation film? And how would crude references to Obama’s sex organs play?
Has Hillary learned one G_d-damned thing? No. Not one G_d damned thing.
We hope Hillary will at some point wake up and learn from Donald Trump. But if she doesn’t – she’ll get what she deserves and we will not weep. We will cheer Donald Trump even when we disagree with Donald Trump because Donald Trump leads the fight against the oppressors of the American people – the political class.
Donald Trump has a more than 2-to-1 lead over the next closest contender in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, according to a poll released Monday by Monmouth University.
Trump takes 26 percent support, followed by Jeb Bush at 12 percent.
Trump’s support has doubled in the poll since mid-July, when he had at 13 percent support and trailing Bush, who was in the lead at 15 percent.
It’s the latest survey to show the businessman and reality TV star pulling away from the pack of Republican presidential candidates nationally.
Trump now holds a 7.5 percentage point lead over his next closest competitor in the field, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls. That lead will increase once the Monmouth survey is factored in.
The Monmouth poll found Trump pulling support from all factions of the party.
Trump has a 20-point lead over Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker among Tea Party supporters, and leads him by 11 points among those who identify as “very conservative.” Trump has an 8 point lead over Bush among those who identify as “somewhat conservative,” and also leads Bush by 8 points among those who describe themselves as moderates.
Trump leads in every age category, and is the top choice of men and women in the survey.
His favorability rating has improved dramatically with 52 percent saying they have a positive view of Trump, against 35 percent who view him negatively.
Donald Trump can win. At this point, Donald Trump deserves to win.
With the release of his book on Thursday and the possibility that he will do well at Thursday’s debate – Donald Trump is prepared to soar like an eagle. Meanwhile, the dead canaries litter the Hillary2016 mine floor like daisies in a field. Hillary Clinton? She’s in the dark – unaware of the peril until she lies down beside the yellow feathers of beautiful birds that can no longer take flight.
