@realDonaldTrump Alert: The Picture Every Donald Trump Supporter Must See

In one picture. One picture encapsulates the long article with many words we wrote about the fixed GOP nomination fight:

That was the plan… it was designed to nominate Jeb Bush… the plan would have worked… but then came Trump.

The GOP primary election is a fix. It’s like fixed wrestling fights. Clown fighters are brought in to entertain the slack-jawed cheer-leaders of puny fighters predestined to lose. But the fight is fixed. The outcome determined, in plush surroundings, long before the sweaty genitals of the fighters got jock-strapped.

Ted Cruz can’t block the fix, he’s a pawn. Carly Fiorina can’t block the fix, she’s a pawn. Ben Carson can’t block the fix, he’s a surprise pawn. Marco Rubio can’t block the fix, he’s a pawn. Rand Paul can’t block the fix, he’s pawned. Chris Christie can’t block the fix, he’s a pawn. Scott Walker can’t block the fix, he’s a pawn. Mike Huckabee can’t block the fix, he’s a pawn. Perry/Santorum/Pataki/Jindal/Gilmore/Graham dumb as rocks pawns, can’t block the fix. They’re all pawns in the great fixed game of thrones.

Divide and conquer. The fix is in. Sadly, only one man, one impure vessel, can stop the fix and the masters of the fix. It’s either impure vessel Trump or Bush III in this GOP primary game of thrones.

Trump and no other has fought Fox News and won. Trump brings new voters into the fray. Coveted new voters other campaigns will not get, cannot get. And they will be legal voters not imported illegally.

Illegal Immigration Amnesty Leadership Dinner

Valerie Jarrett (fixer of the 2008 DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee), Rupert Murdoch (fixer of the Fox News GOP debate), Jeb Bush (fixed to wear the hand-me-down crown) at the December 1, 2015 Wall Street Journal CEO Council. The games of thrones was fixed long ago. The spoils of cheap imported labor and new voters proportioned on luxury plates.

The fixers must be stopped. Only one man can stop them.

  1. Admin: brilliant analysis.

    Its the establishment feasting on the bones of the middle class.

    Which makes them traitors.

    That is all the American People need to know.

    I remember Murdock’s initial shot at Donald–something about making a fool of himself.

    If dragging those dark movers behind this scene of iniquity is the mark of a fool

    Then I say the caption should read:

    More fools. Less traitors.

  2. TRUMP I: How come no one is talking about this?:


    Ford Throws UAW (and Trump) a Bone, Shifts Work from Mexico to Ohio

    With barely a month to go in its contract talks, Ford Motor Co. has thrown a meaty bone to the United Autoworkers Union. And it may also take Ford out of the presidential debate, where it recently became a target of Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

    Negotiations got off to a slightly testy start last month following news that the second-largest domestic automaker would likely move production of several key small car lines from Michigan to Mexico. But this week, Ford began production of heavy-duty versions of its F-Series pickups, which previously were built in Mexico, at a plant in Ohio: a move that will “secure” more than 1,000 union jobs.

    “Our investment in Ohio Assembly Plant reinforces our commitment to building vehicles in America,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of the Americas. “Working with our partners in the UAW, we found a way to make the costs competitive enough to bring production of a whole new generation of work trucks to Ohio.”

  3. TRUMP II:


    Trump state fair helicopter rides still on
    Chopper is one of 3 Trump owns; it seats 12 comfortably

    (CNN) —The Iowa State Fair won’t allow Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to give kids free rides on his helicopter on fairgrounds, but the real estate developer has secured a nearby location.

    The helicopter will take off from a parking lot outside the fair in Des Moines, campaign state chairman Chuck Laudner told CNN on Friday, adding that Trump may hop on a few rides as well.

    CNN previously reported that the Sikorsky is one of three that he owns, seats 12 people comfortably, including the pilot.

    Trump will arrive in the $7 million helicopter before holding a press event. Despite Trump’s previous public announcement, his campaign expressed safety concerns about the event becoming so well attended that landing the aircraft could be a challenge.

    The helicopter has already arrived in the area. It took three refueling stops to get it here and flew at an altitude of 2400 feet across the county, according to a source familiar with the travel plans.

    We’ll just guess this will be the talk of the Iowa State Fair. Trump trumps again.

  4. Trump blistering tonight. Attacks all the other candidates as owned by donors. Greta has him on live Dot48. He’s getting better at these pressers

  5. Admin, his pressers are the anti-debate…so he gets to talk…and about what he wants to talk about…he is in control and good at it…takes charge and command

  6. A picture to disgusting for words.

    Shoot, only half the nation votes. If Trump gets discouraged voters out, Trump can win.

    With all his insults he has changed the nature of the election from an oppressive narrative to a major production.

  7. Trump: “I want horrible.” The most horrible people to negotiate for the U.S. not the weak negotiators we have now.

  8. if anyone is listening to c-span after rally…call after call of democrats saying that are going to vote for Donald

  9. I love that he says “we”, too. Obama was so “I, I, I”, and “my white house”, “my cabinet”, “my administration”.

  10. Admin, do you know when that photo was taken?

    So now we have Hillary 2008 voters who are still pist at what happened back then, and pist that Hillary isn’t breaking free of failed Obama policies…

    Then we have the GOP primaries where Trump will not be endorsed, so what next?

    Trump will either drop out of the entire race or he will run as an independent.

    Then what?

    Perot 2.0?

    Hillary wins and has a GOP cabinet that pulls her to the center, and puts Trump in her cabinet???

    The GOP are stupido to think that pulling a Hillary08 on Trump won’t put Hillary in the White House.

    Is that the checkmate that is being discussed in this photo??

  11. Admin: what you have done here is clarify the political landscape for everyone, so we know which candidate to place our chips on.

    If the problem here is the game, then the solution does not lie with electing a gladiator on the left or a gladiator on the right who is programmed to die in mortal combat, in order to entertain the elites an mislead the nation. In short, we do not need a pawn like Bush, Rubio, Sander or Cruz.

    The solution is a game changer, which is someone who does not rely on the donor class, and is not constrained by ideological rigidity, or someone who takes great pride in being a centrist who stands for nothing. The solution requires someone who has the vision and courage to take on massive projects, overcome overwhelming odds, and succeed. In short, we need a game changer named Donald Trump.

    You have made that point clear as a bell in this blog. Now the public needs to understand that the problem is systemic, the other candidates are pawns, a game changer is required and that is Trump.

  12. VJ day….my dad had just returned from the European front, a survivor of Normandy, Patton 3rd, he loved Patton, 3 years, only 21. My grandmother told me he was in the living room crying one night, he knew he was being shipped to Japan, my grandmother told me that she put her arm around him and said, “Loyd, you know you must go”, and he said, “yes, I know mom”…
    The next day the bomb was dropped…

  13. Wbboei, this one’s for you:


    Game Change: Trump Consults with Sen Jeff Sessions on Immigration Strategy

    In what may be the most important development in the 2016 Presidential race to date, Donald Trump has announced, and Sen. Jeff Sessions’ office has confirmed, that the GOP front-runner is consulting with the Alabama Senator in crafting his immigration plan for the future of America.

    The real estate mogul’s announcement will send shock waves through Washington D.C. and all across primary states. [snip]

    Republican pundits have lobbed every imaginable accusation at Trump. Yet these same pundits, while seemingly furious at the man, have demonstrated no similar concern, angst, or passion about the dissolution of our southern border, the rampant exploitation of guest-worker programs, the collapse of middle class wages, and the growing illegal immigrant crime wave.

    Sen. Sessions, Chairman of the Senate’s Immigration Subcommittee, is widely regarded as the gold standard on immigration. Sessions has also become the intellectual thought leader in the Republican Party on appealing to the blue collar voters who have been abandoned by their political leaders.

    For instance, Sen. Sessions recently led the fight against Obamatrade, issuing one in-depth report after another about its effects on working families.

    The structure of the argument is beautiful.

    Its the Brutus is an honorable man theme on steroids, i.e.

    “I promised myself that I would NOT

    Say what is true about Carly

    Namely, that

    She wrecked HP,

    Cost people their livelihoods

    Sent America jobs overseas

    Ans lost to a loser like Boxer

    Then vicious bottom feeders like Megan Kelly

    Would scream to high heaven that I am anti woman

    Therefore, I have done what my competitors on stage have done

    And taken a tacit oath

    To hide this information from you

    Because I would rather betray you

    The country we love, and

    A posterity that has not vote

    Than violate the cannons of political correctness.

    Well, I just broke that oath and told you the truth

    . . . so away we go.”

    And because Sessions was the gold standard on immigration, and because McConnell is a controlled beast, the operative word being beast, McConnell denied Sessions the chairmanship he deserved by virtue of his seniority, and gave that position to a more malleable individual, Mike Enzi of Wyoming. This is a big shot in the arm for both of them, and as the article indicates, Sessions has been eloquent and has stood tall on the issue, while the rest of the Republican party under McConnell’s corrupt leadership folded like a cheap watch and played the game of failure theater which is the worst form of betrayal of the American People. Words can scarcely describe the degree of corruption which is afoot, and the 11 million illegals figure promoted by the elites is a phony as the 5.4% unemployment rate they peddle. Year in and year out more parasites attach themselves to those that are already on the hull, and often they are friends and relatives of those who are already there and causing the vessel to sink under the weight of their corruption. Sadly, the public who will bear the cost of this are clueless, and take refuge in the defense that they are too busy with their own lives to worry about politics. There will come a point however when the two scenarios merge, and at that point the corruption of the political class will become impossible to ignore. But by the time they catch on, it will be too late.

  17. Thanks for posting the entire speech by Trump, Admin.

    Donald, you really need to tighten up your long winded speeches and keep your self-glorification and boasting under control. Your message is on point.

  18. I hate these republican operatives more than I hate the dims.

    They whisper sweet nothings in your ear while stabbing you in the back.

    For every one of them who come forward now to attack Trump

    The operative question is who they represent.

    9 out of 10 times, the answer is our donors.

    Our turn to rule.

    Our turn to fuck the American People like a house cat.

    This Rick Wilson is simply the latest example.

    I was glad to see Erickson get Trumped

    Calling the mouth of the south who carries a Bible with him wherever he goes

    A sexual deviant was an especially nice touch

    Because the ignoranti will say, well if he was’t one why would anyone accuse him.

    Some photoshopped pictures from the 4-H club might also help

    With Wilson, Erickson and a wholesome flock of sheep

    Caption to read: When Men Were Men–And Sheep Were Nervous.

  19. “Trump said he collaborated with Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions on the immigration policy paper. Sessions, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on immigration, is popular with tea party conservatives for his hard stances on securing the U.S.-Mexico border.”

    “I like him,” Trump said of Sessions. “Tough guy. I like that. We have a similar thought process.”

    The GOP shills have spent the last week saying Trump has no plan. The thing with Sessions is that any one (or all) of the candidates could have gone to him. Sessions isn’t endorsing Trump. He is giving him information that the quislings in the Senate, House leadership, business lobbyists, the Chamber of Commerce, immigration activists, the White House and the media did their best to shut down. The CNN article also mentions a tax plan Trump is coming up with. This is very bad news for the other candidates and establishment Republicans who have done their best to divert Trump off illegal immigration. Now Trump will be going back to it armed with Sessions research and legal arguments. What slow pokes and dullards these Republican candidates are. Cruz has been a Sessions ally but did not make it a centerpiece of his candidacy unfortunately for him. Too late now.

  20. This just out at daily beast and too convoluted for me to thumbnail:
    Who Really Runs #BlackLivesMatter?
    “…The Seattle disruption exacerbated a nascent divide on the activist left between black and white progressives….”

  22. Trump with Sessions…Excellent. Solving the immigration problem is not rocket science. If you want the country to survive, you close the borders, throw out the criminals and sort through the rest, giving a limited number a pathway to citizenship that financially and socially benefits the nation. The only thing that has stood in the way are the globalist creeps who serve only the few.

    The meltdown of China and the global economy will open the door to a return to nationalism. Trump has timed it well. And he has marched in like his term as POTUS has already started. Obola must be going nuts.

    VJ day….my dad had just returned from the European front, a survivor of Normandy, Patton 3rd, he loved Patton, 3 years, only 21. My grandmother told me he was in the living room crying one night, he knew he was being shipped to Japan, my grandmother told me that she put her arm around him and said, “Loyd, you know you must go”, and he said, “yes, I know mom”…

    The next day the bomb was dropped…

    Firstly, God bless your dad, gonzo. The reason I don’t speak German or Japanese is because of that greatest generation. I am ashamed that the selfie-addled group of youngsters now have no concept or appreciation for why they can be selfie-addled. God bless you dad.

    Two things stand out in your post. First, your grandmum’s reaction to your dad in the living room. WWII demonstrated how this country should go to war. With everyone. War is a terrible, awful, horrible and necessary fact of life, and to properly prosecute a war, the entire nation MUST be behind that effort. For a mother to GET HER CHILD BACK from an infantry and tank campaign the likes of D-day, and then TELL him that he is probably going to go back into that same hell on the other side of the worldDEMONSTRATES exactly where that generation got its drive and determination from. During the Vietnam war, North Vietnamese famously joined the effort saying ‘born in the north to die in the south.’ That completely supports the strategy that Giap employed of a 10-to-1 ratio of Vietnamese casualties to U.S. casualties.

    Secondly, the use of the bomb to end the war. I have never and will never be a proponent of total nuclear disarmament of the United States. Reduction perhaps, since we do have enough to destroy the entire world many times over, but not complete disarmament. War is not supposed to be nice. War is not supposed to be clean. If the course of action is war, it should be prosecuted in such a way as to deliver the maximum destruction to the enemy at the minimum cost in terms of treasure (life, material, time, etc). We were lucky that the correct leaders were in place to make the extremely difficult decisions of the day that resulted in the great joy of having you as a Big Pink poster.

    God bless your family, gonzo.

    This is why what she is doing right now hurts so much. I really do love Hillary. I really do want to see her in the White House. The world NEEDS her in the White House. But right now, we are in the snake pit to end all snake pits, and Trump is the only one with the stick.

    I just hope (and pray) she can right the ship before it is too late.

    Hillary 2016?

    Hillary looks good. She looks healthy and happy. Harkin gave Hillary a very ringing endorsement. Very nice. But of course CNN focused solely on the SnapChat joke. Then the CNN idiots focused on her trustworthiness numbers and then they went back to the email crap.


    Hillary 2016?

  28. In a moment of madness yesterday we thought that maybe we made sense out of the senselessness of Hillary2016 in a way that made the world and Hillary a happy place. We know it was madness that turned our thoughts onto a positive frame of mind. But we have tried ever so hard to grab sense out of senselessness and order from chaos.

    So this is the madness we came up with to make ourselves feel better: Some people here have written that to them it is almost as if Hillary is not into running for president; as if she is deliberately sabotaging herself. So in our moment of madness, our delirium, we thought: what if that is indeed the case? What if Hilary is deliberately or subconsciously taking herself out of the running?

    Our scenario, the madness scene in this opera then, is that there really is nothing to hide or no problem at all surrounding this server business. That eventually when the “wiped” server is excavated forensically all the Hillary communications will be uncovered and she will be proven truthful that she did nothing wrong.

    But that exoneration will come too late. Before that Hillary will have to leave the race due to the Obama ordered investigations and Obama’s declaration of support for Joe Biden. So Hillary will leave the race saying that she cannot in all fairness run for president while all these questions swirl about her. The result will be a cataclysmic collapse of the Obama Dimocratic Party. The result of the Obama fever from 2008 will be total Republican control of local, state, and national institutions of power.

    The Obama Dimocratic Party will be in ruins; Hillary will eventually be proven to have been railroaded out of a race she could have won. Is this the revenge served cold that Hillary plans?

    We know this is madness. But if there is any sense to what Hillary and Hillary2016 is doing we don’t see it. We doubt the poll with B.S. ahead of Hillary in NH but we do think it is only a matter of time before B.S. is ahead of Hillary in NH and in Iowa. Biden will then put all his efforts into South Carolina and the nomination race will take a long time to resolve unless Hillary leaves the race – which would ensure a Republican victory. The Republicans will settle their nomination sooner than expected and the Obama Dimocrats will continue to fight only to win defeat. The party needs Hillary, not the reverse. But a huge chunk of the party is now composed of madhouse kooks who hate her and would rather lose than let Hillary be the leader of their party. This might be Hillary’s ultimate revenge. Yeah, we know we’re dreaming. Midsummer madness.

  29. Why Donald Trump resonates with the “silent majority”:


    High school students told to remove American flags from trucks


    A high school student says when his mother came to pick him up in his truck that was flying an American flag, a staff member told them it wasn’t allowed to be flown on school property.

    Now multiple students at Mount Zion High School in Carrolton are standing behind him and flying flags on their cars.

    “When we got here, they was all yelling at us to take our flags down or they would be cut down and stuff like this,” said student LaChristopher Hebert.

    Herbert and his friend Nate Maples are just two of many Mount Zion High School students who have been flying an American flag in support of their friend.

    They gathered at the school a day after a Facebook post in which the student wrote, “I find it disturbing that when my mom picks me up from school in my truck flying an American flag, a staff member comes outside and tells me that we are not allowed to fly it in the schools parking lot.”

    “It’s not right. This is what we live for. This is what our soldiers are fighting for, things like this,” said Herbert.

    An American flag flies in front of Mount Zion High School, and many students are asking how that differs from when they fly the flag on the back of their trucks.

    “We pledge that flag every day in the classroom. Why can’t we show our support outside the classrooms?” Maples asked.

  30. Sessions of Alabama.


    Donald Trump leads Alabama primary poll

    Donald Trump has a wide lead over his Republican presidential campaign rivals in Alabama, with the businessman and “The Apprentice” star picking up the support of 30 percent of GOP primary voters in the state, according to a poll released Thursday.

    Trump’s closest opponent, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, had 15 percent of support in the poll conducted by Strategy Research on behalf of WKRG.

    Alabama primary voters will head to the polls March 1 for what is being dubbed the “SEC Primary” because a number of southern states are also holding primary contests on that date.

    Jon Gray, a political consultant with Strategy Research, told WKRG that Trump’s style plays well with Alabama voters. He said Trump has gone from a “joke” a month ago to “a really serious contender for the nomination of the Republican Party right now.”

    “He says what he wants to say,” Gray says. “He doesn’t worry about who he’s going to offend. He doesn’t worry about the words coming out of his mouth. He’s communicating a message. And in Alabama, that’s historically how people in Alabama have been.”

  31. Anyone believe this?:


    This week marks a seminal shift in the presidential campaign of Donald Trump. This is the week the establishment rolled over and began to accept that he is their front runner. The wild attacks and blatant put downs will be muted from here on out as the establishment struggles to come to grips with their new reality. Trump has proven to be an immensely popular and muscularly resilient candidate. He has survived fire that would have killed any ordinary candidate.

    His reward will be to watch a batch of the so-called serious candidates be exiled to the sidelines. the Rick Perrys of the world, the Lindsay Grahams of the world, were valuable to the establishment at 5% support. They have no value at 0%. 5%, 10 times could have allowed an unpopular Jeb Bush to win a lot of primaries with a surprisingly low percentage of the vote, as long as the minor candidates siphoned off some of the rest. With a half of dozen of them at 0%, that strategy is toast.

    Republican kingmakers are nothing if not pragmatic, they want results for their money. They aren’t getting it. They are unhappy. They are angry. But like a chameleon changing colors, they want to be on the winning side. They all know Trump, they also know they can deal with Trump, so they will. The Blitzkrieg is over. Trump survived. The establishment sacrificed many of their finest media plants this past weekend. Every one of them ended up looking like exactly what they are, cheap desperate prostitutes, willing to say whatever was required of them, as long as their paychecks kept coming .

    Media brands that took a dozen years to build, are now damaged goods. Where will Trump take this, who knows? But the man knows how to make a deal, the man knows how to win, and the man knows how to set a mark so people don’t screw with him in the future. It must suck to be Meghan Kelly, Chris Wallace, and Bret Baier, and know that you are shut out from the Trump circus for the indefinite future. May their shows suffer damage as a result? They might, and it’s certainly a fate no one else is going to risk. Lots of bazookas got laid down at their feet by the mercenary media this week. They took their best coordinated shot at him, and failed. CNN doesn’t have the ratings muscle to go after him in the next debate the way Fox did. Look for a totally different and much less confrontational take on Donald Trump starting now.

    Trump himself, in interviews, has said he expects lots of ads attacking him. We too believe that in September the SuperPacs will begin vicious attacks against Trump so the candidates themselves don’t get the blame. We are glad that Trump is aware of what is coming. We suspect he has ads in the can ready to unveil. Thus far the Trump ads have been excellent and even his snapchat ads have been very good.

    It will be telling who gives Trump his first endorsement, and the ramifications that pol will have with the GOP establishment. Then lets see see which publications start getting behind Trump. Done correctly, Trump could bottle up the GOP by the end of this year, leaving the GOP divided going into the primary season with itself.

    Hillary 2016?

  33. Admin…I think it is true for some of the media…I have heard them sounding almost resigned…and some even saying that he could get the nomination and he could even win…

    i just heard i think his name is Michael lewis, repub pundit say, something like “this might be the new norm and we might actually get President Trump…”

    he said it on msnbc with Wolf filling in


    Donald is live on c-span with the kids now ready to put them on the Trump helicopter
    and talking to reporters

  34. Trump lands in Iowa. Gives quick press conference in front of his helicopter (denounces Nabisco moving some operations to Mexico).

    Trump is surrounded by thatch haired boys, lots of boys, all looking very anxious for Trump to stop talking so they can get on the luxury copter. It’s a very funny and fun sight. Pure Iowa State Fair fare.

    Hi The Rock…yes Hillary looks good, her smile is beautiful, however, imho…she seemed drained and reliant on Harkin…I feel very bad for her…I wanted her to be our champion out there…but she is still praising O and it freaks me out…she does not come across as the independent fighter of 2008 to me…maybe things can change…

  36. I wish they would mike the questions…

    reporter asks “Are you going to take questions from reporters?”

    I am laughing so hard

    he says “What am i doing? I am taking questions from reporters right now…he looks to the kids ‘am I taking questions’

    …too much…never a dull moment with him

  37. Lieberman was wrong when he did what Rand Paul is doing. Marco Rubio at least is doing the right thing.


    REPORTER: Rand Paul spent three days here in New Hampshire and he spent those days criticizing you.

    DONALD TRUMP: Well, that’s because —

    REPORTER: What did you do to tick him off?

    TRUMP: Yes. No, Rand Paul — you have to understand — is a disaster in the polls. He’s a disaster on military and defense. He is getting decimated by everybody. And other than giving him a lot of money for an eye center at his request — he asked me, could I have money? I said, absolutely. Because I thought it was worthwhile. But I gave him a lot of money for an eye center, which is very hypocritical when you think of it. But other than giving him a tremendous amount of money for his eye center, which I’m happy about, frankly, because I’m sure they do good work, I hope they do good work, he is doing so badly that he figures he has to attack Trump because I’m leading by a lot everywhere.

    And I don’t mind. I think he’s — he is never going to make it. Never going to make it. Can’t make it. Got the wrong message. I mean, this is not a time to be weak on defense. Okay? And I’m the opposite. I want to make our military so strong, so powerful, so great that nobody is going to mess with us. And I want to take care of our vets who are treated like third-class citizens. You know, two weeks ago on Wednesday, our vets, as you know — you probably reported on it, because you have a big problem here with vets that are not taken care of properly. Our vets had the longest wait in the history of the V.A., waiting for doctors in rooms. They wait four, five, six days. And in one case, they waited five days and the doctor said, sorry, I’m going on vacation now.

    So our politicians all talk, no action. They’re all the same. Our politicians have let the vets down. Rand Paul has let the vets down. He has let the vets down. You know, I don’t blame him. He is doing so poorly in the polls so he attacks the person — you know, hey, look, I’ve been attack now by Perry of Texas. And he went peeing like a rocket ship except in the wrong direction. I was attacked by Lindsey Graham. And he had two points. Now he has zero. Now, Rand Paul has very few points. But I think he’s going down, too. I will say one further thing about Rand Paul then let’s not waste a lot of time. But Rand Paul is using the people of Kentucky.

    Either run for Senate and do a good job or run for president. You don’t run for president and by the way, if I don’t make it, I will become your senator reluctantly. If I were somebody — a good, strong Republican from Kentucky, I would run against him in a heartbeat. And you would win. Because the people of Kentucky are being used by Rand Paul. Now, think of it. They’re saying is, oh, if he doesn’t make it, we will take him. That’s not the way it works. The people of Kentucky should get a senator that wants to represent them, not a senator where it’s a backup plan. So, if I was in Kentucky, I would run against him. Believe me, I would win.

  38. On CNN pied piper Donald Trump to Iowa boys and girls of all colors “let’s take a helicopter ride.” Cheers from kids.

  39. For a political novice, Trump is a powerhouse. Just watched his presser on CSPAN. Hillary has her work cut out for her. Only problem I had with it was him saying that Hillary was the worse Sec. of State in the history of this country. It seems like he doesn’t understand that the buck stops at the White House.

    Hillary 2016?

  40. ok …all safe on the land…

    the kids are adorable…it looks windy… i hope that is is for now wit the copter

    See that question mark behind my signature line? It is there because of everything you said. To her credit, the press is also making Hillary seem isolated. I have never believed that she isn’t talking to people. She is. And she is listening. What she isn’t doing is responding correctly. Now is the time to begin separating herself from bumbles the idiot. Since he is trying to destroy her, destroy him. All is fair in love and war. She has the ability to do it so much better than Trump. Why? This guy she knows named Bill. The two of them should craft and execute a long range undermining strategy targeted at preezy. The people WOULD get behind that.

    Hillary 2016?

  42. Drudge has been told to get on board the GOP railroad I guess .. not ONE Trump mention in days there.

    Also, CNN bitches today ranting about “specifics” of policy by DT

    I haven’t heard much specifics from anyone else. Listen I mean really listen to Jeb and you’ll not hear much specifics

    Hillary is going to carry on Obot’s disasters and she just proposed a 10 year billions of dollars tax increases to fund college education

  43. btw…regarding my comment that is in moderation

    it was Matt Lewis speaking with Richard Wolffe on msnbc who said regarding the voters anger, etc ‘this might be the new norm and we might end up with President Trump”

    example of some of the media is starting to wonder out loud…

  44. I agree The Rock…that is what is so perplexing to many of us…we want that strong Hillary and smart Bill strategy but it seems snuffed out by the need to continually pay deference to O…hard to take…

    and as I heard someone say today…it seems that the O Coalition that she planned on it pivoting to Bernie S…

    so what is the point…

  45. dot48,

    Healthcare, housing and education are costs draining the middle class. Our kids are falling behind in education. And the average college tuition and fees are over $30,000/yr and these kids end up with no job for their troubles.

    Didn’t Obola give more than $10 Billion to the Muslim Brotherhood to take over Egypt?

  46. Thank you Rock,
    I fear we will never see their kind again…
    This not to say our wonderful brave Veterans of these most horrible wars are not true heroes,they most certainly are, it’s the fabric of the very being of our nation’s citizenry I am talking about..

  47. Admin-

    This might be Hillary’s ultimate revenge. Yeah, we know we’re dreaming. Midsummer madness.


    All of us know something crazy is going on with Hillary and her 2016 campaign.

    She looks healthy and happy, yet her campaign, party and the WhiteHouse are doing everything they can to undermine and destroy her.

    Normally Hillary and Bill would react differently to these attacks. Bill did call in his long time attorneys from when he was President, something about an email or emails Hillary received as SOS.

    Bill wanted to make sure Hillary was legally protected or in the ‘right’.

    Without knowledge of what is really going on behind the curtain…nothing to us outsiders makes any damn sense.

  48. Don’t know who was rolling video on the helicopter ride video above, but wow – almost 2 whole minutes static on the “TRUMP” name on the tail. If it keep up like this, DJT’s “Billion Dollars” he would be willing to spend on the election will stay in the bank and earn YUGE! interest.

    Free publicity abounds! MAYBE that is what happened to that creep Matt Drudge. Looks like he DID get the memo!


    It’s really interesting to watch. And it’s hard to argue on many levels that his message IS RESONATING! My sister, a democrat, said “If it’s not Bernie, I’ll vote for Trump”.


  49. Said that wrong…but y’all knew what I meant! LOL

    “And it’s hard to argue on many levels that his message IS (NOT!) RESONATING!”

    By the way, is anyone else running for the GOP?!?!?!? LOL!

  50. Lu, Shadow, S, wbb, foxy, htc and everybody else here that cares about the fate of this country, we need to ask ourselves a very serious question. How do we get the what we are sharing among ourselves into Hillary’s hands? Admin authors post after post after post of spot on analysis of the current state of affairs of the nation in regards to this election, and we here that read them offer post after post after post of thoughtful insights that support these articles. How do we get our analysis, our warnings, our thoughtfulness into her hands? Not as an occasional reading item, but as a red flag to her and her true people letting her know what is going on outside of the bubble she is in. How do we let her know that whatever bumbles has on her doesn’t matter, that we will be here as long as she is herself going forward? We need to figure that out, and we need to figure that out fast.

    I like what Trump is doing. I like that he is thumbing his nose at the powers that be. I like that he is talking about the true problems this nation is facing. But do I for 1 millisecond think he would be a better president than Hillary would? Do I want Trump getting that 3am call instead of Hillary? If (I mean when) the U.S. is attacked again, do i want Trump in the White House instead of Hillary? NO WAY! But if Hillary doesn’t get her act together, that is where my support (and my vote)
    will rest, and rest quite comfortably.

    Admin, your thoughts on this would be invaluable. Lets put our heads together on this one.

    Hillary 2016?

  51. I think Hillary is getting the “message” that the long knives are OUT .. she seemed very hard hitting today but not on the right message. IF she could get that TONE and yes I said TONE and get on with the RIGHT message on the stump she might pull this out. Not saying it’s possible but I think she senses that once again this is going to slip out of her hands

  52. Bill was playing golf with Obama this weekend too
    What you reckon is going on?
    Pressure for her to get out?
    Or undying love that they’ll support her to the end?

  53. … almost 2 whole minutes static on the “TRUMP” name on the tail.

    Yes, I found it irritating and fast forwarded though the video. The whole scene was so staged that it bothered me.

  54. To be honest, for me a little less of Trump is better.

    24/7 of him saying the same thing over and over, with his constant boasting is wearing thin on my nerves.

    I was picking up on Trump before he even ran, so maybe I have reached a saturation point.

    I am still for him, but his messages are not new to me.

  55. TheRock

    I understand what you are saying about wanting to warn Hillary of the treachery, but I think the Clinton’s know full well what is going on.

    I am sure there are life long Clinton insiders that also know what is going on.

    I don’t think anyone could try harder than Admin to try and get our point across to Hillary than this blog. This is one of the longest Hillary supporting websites there is, and I have to be sure they are already aware of Big Pink.

    What more can we do, I honestly don’t know.

    Lu and I were on PUMA Pac back in the days when we called, faxed until our fingers were numb, wrote to members of Congress and SuperDelegates, Delegates to try and help Hillary get the nomination…and met up and protested for Hillary in Denver…and it was there that I realized how insane the DNC, Nasty, Reid and Dim powerPeople were.

    I praise Admin for keeping up the good fight, never giving up and giving us all a place to fight the good fight with her/him.

    Thank you Admin!!!!!

  56. FWIW – AS many of you know, like Shadow, I was “in the trenches” with HRC 08. RBC, FDR, Denver, Phone Banks. Even arranging BUSES filled with supporters going to the DNC HQ from Florida to meet with then Chairman Howard Dean (who suddenly vanished on vacation) the day we were supposed to meet with him.

    IMO – The Clintons either KNOW there is an Ill Wind and are doing as Admin muses about behind the scenes, OR, HRC is not the same person she WAS back then. Her stance on everything seems SO much different. So scripted, careful. Even her voice has changed.

    I don’t know what has happened to her. Or maybe it’s just me. BUT – what interests me in DJT is that he illicits that same interest in politics that Hillary did. Back then Hillary WAS “The Stick” beating at the vipers (Obama, the Political Class and the DNC) until the end (except in Denver).

    Now she looks to me more like the snake in the basket being hypnotized by the sweet song of the piper. Whoever that is. She lashes, but doesn’t hit anything. While Trump too may be playing the “piper” to the masses, with the other hand he is beating the other snakes at every turn.

    If Hillary is going to get her mojo back, she really does need to go rogue against TPTB and Obama. But I believe it is too late. I hope I am wrong. Only time will tell. This election is about the country. And we will not have a country if everything is a give-away. I’ve not heard her say much about REAL JOBS, REAL INDUSTRY, BETTER deals than the ACA,etc.

    I think, personally, Obama & Company are the evil doers regarding all the drip, drip, drip.

    So sad.

  57. Have I said lately how much I love this blog, the brains here, the humor, and of course, our wonderful Admin.

    Off to play poker! LOL


  58. Thus..lol dang phone and big thumbs…or, whatever..

    Actually I want to see Trump on Drudge

    I want to see that even though their anti Hillary is over the top, that they haven’t been bought out by those guys.
    Personally, they are like a Internet political porn most of the time.

  59. I am pleased as punch.

    The dimocrat party has decided to expel Jefferson and Jackson from their party.

    White men . . .

    Henceforth and forever more their mascot will be Desmond Tutu.

    My only suggestion is that they do a voice over.

    Trouble is, he sounds too much like Curly on The Three Stooges.

    And then we could also adopt the South African constitution.

    With a little bit of Mugambe heat chopping to liven the narrative.

    Before making that quantum leap howevever

    I would be keen to know whether there is a right of repleven

    A vaudeville cane to drag Roberts back to the rubber room he came from

    If so, then I might be receptive.

    So lets be practical about this:

    If aging yuppies with more money than brains can do a make over,

    Then why not this nation.

    And, if we can send a man to Mars

    Then surely we can pay slavery reparations.

    What is the net present value of 60 acre and a mule.

    I might be interested in that one myself.

    And I am sure I could find some grounds to file a claim.

    The slogan of American Express was membership has its benefits.

    The slogan of hoodie Obama is victimhood has its perks.

    This could be the best thing since the Oklahoma land rush.

    Bill looks like he’s getting ready to open a can of whoopass.

  61. Tony, I hope you’re right. To me, his face looked old and feeble, and I thought he looked to be on the losing side of whatever they were talking about. It looked like a losing anger not a winning anger.

    Of course, it would have helped to be able to see O’s face. If he had had that angry defensive look he gets, I would feel more confident that Bill was able to win something.

    I just don’t get why there is a problem. Most democrats aren’t happy about Obama, and most aren’t socialists. Obama does not wield the same power he used to. Bill must still have plenty left. Even many connections who ran to the new power (O the fraud) must be back available to Bill. What can possibly be the barrier? How can O possibly have more on the Clintons than they have on him? I.just.don’t.get.it.

  62. pm317, I looked for about 3 hours when you asked me about what I heard about the debate team having security ready for Trump at the debate – I didn’t remember exactly where it was, so I had to go through essays *and* comments lol. Finally, I put out an appeal to a site I thought I heard it at – someone just found it!



  63. Whether or not the Clinton’s have a smoking gun against the Fraud, they do know where the bodies are buried.

    That being said, Obama is very insecure and used to being handed everything to get him into the WhiteHouse for the BlackLives ONLY Matter group.

    It’s easy for him to threaten because he is ordained King, and those two combinations, along with his Headless Horsewoman, are two crazies running the clown show.

  64. Lorac,

    It is not about Obola. He is a cheap date. It is Soros and the money people who fund the party. That is who Obola talks about on the golf course.

  65. Lorac, we’ve written about the plan to evict Trump repeatedly:


    There are a few other things we want to make everyone aware of. Did you know that Fox News had a plan to evict Trump from the debates physically? It’s likely that Fox News wanted to provoke Trump into an explosion so that they could have armed guards come in and remove him:

    They reviewed not just the questions they would ask, but the structure of every query, keeping in mind the constraints of time and the need to avoid repeating topics. As they sorted and re-sorted questions, the unpredictability of real estate tycoon and reality TV star Donald Trump was never far from their minds.

    Baier even had a “nuclear option” at the ready for Trump if he ignored all protocol.

    The script — which he didn’t have to use — took a page from Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” TV show. It went like this: “Mr. Trump in your business you have rules. You follow rules. We have rules on this stage. We don’t want to have to escort you to the elevator outside this boardroom.”

    “We’re hoping we don’t have to use it,” Baier said later. “We’re locked and loaded.”

    They baited Trump on purpose to then try to evict him.

  66. Some slobber over at DailyBeast that I don’t feel like attaching, but this comment I like and agree with but don’t feel badly for BernieBeanie


    Trump also attacked BernieBoy Sanders as a weakling even as he saluted him as a brother in spirit. Commenting on how the Vermont senator lost the microphone to Black Lives Matter activist at a recent event in Seattle, Trump said, “I felt badly for him, but it showed that he was weak.

  67. Signs of life?


    Hillary Clinton steals the show at Iowa Democrats meet
    Former Secretary of State delivered the best speech of her presidential campaign at the Iowa Wing Dings dinner

    Standing before a giant American flag, her arms outstretched before the cheering crowd, she broke into a wide irrepressible smile.

    For the first time in a long time, in her life spent in the public eye, Hillary Clinton looked like she was enjoying herself. [snip]

    The 2,000 strong room of people gave standing ovations, let out deafening cheers, and broke out into cries of “Hillary, Hillary, Hillary,” as the former first lady ripped into the Republican party, laid out her policies and sought to allay fears of scandal.

    In a witty approach to the controversy surrounding the use of her private email server whilst she was secretary of state – and her subsequently deleting several thousand of the emails before they could be made public – Mrs Clinton told the audience that she recently began a Snap chat account: “I love it,” she quipped. “Those messages disappear by themselves.”

    She delivered a mocking warning to voters not to be fooled believing that the other Republican contenders were any more moderate or reasonable than the firebrand celebrity frontrunner Donald Trump.

    “Don’t let the circus distract you, if you look at their policies, most of the other candidates are just Trump without the pizzazz or the hair,” she said. “Yes, Mr Trump says outrageous and hateful things about immigrants but how many of the other candidates disagree with him?”

    As the crowd roared at her jokes, any hint of the stiffness that is often so present in Mrs Clinton’s public demeanour melted away.

    Instead she delivered the sort of rip-roaring speech that is needed, if she is to allay her slow slide in the polls, and will have her campaign aides sleeping more soundly in their beds.

    Relaxed and energetic, the Democratic frontrunner turned to her policy prescriptions, focusing on the topic that is fast becoming the theme of this election campaign: recapturing the American Dream by rebalancing the inequality of wealth.

    It’s been a long dry spell that we have written any positive about Hillary2016. Not our fault. There has not been any good news. With this speech at least there are some signs of life.

  68. Admin,

    So good to find good news about Hillary. No there has not been any lately. But she did look good today. Maybe she has a program and is taking it one day at a time. That is a good way to handle overwhelming situations. And it frees you to enjoy the moments.

    You know she is INTJ on Briggs Meyers and that is the rarest personality type, particularly for women. Just 1 in 300. I am one, too. We make good leaders, but maybe not such great politicians. I have done many politically stupid things in my life, where I just could not do anything but what I did.

    It is a long way until the elections. Trump has made a huge impact on the system and it would be wise to re-evaluate the change that is here. A smart woman would let him do a lot of her fighting for her.

  69. I don’t think that speech was so upbeat, but then again I’m against illegal immigration.
    it’s not the Republican party she needs to worry about, it’s obama, it’s always been obama.
    Trump had been aiming at her when he should be among at obama.

  70. Or – maybe I didn’t miss it, but didn’t remember where I saw it…. it’s so much fun getting older lol

  71. Donald Trump will not attack Carly Fiorina. No. He will not. He will not be goaded into attacking Carly Fiorina. He simply won’t. He will resist talking about her and her record. Donald Trump will not talk about Carly Fiornina’s record. No he won’t.


    “Carly was a little nasty to me,” Trump said. “Be careful, Carly. Be careful. But actually, I can’t say anything to her because she’s a woman and I don’t want to be accused of being tough on women.”

    Trump then went into an extended riff where he imagined how he would attack Fiorina if he could.

    “I promised I wouldn’t say that she ran Hewlett Packard into the ground,” Trump said. “I said I would not say it. That her stock value tanked. That she laid off tens of thousands of people and she got viciously fired. I said I would not say it. And that she then went out and ran against Barbara Boxer for senator of California, and it’s a race that should have been won and she lost in a landslide, and I said, I will not say that, ok? So I’m not going to say it.”

    And that’s how it’s done. An attack done with humor and irony.

  72. This 1988 story about Donald Trump’s plane is making the rounds:


    The private Boeing 727 of real estate tycoon Donald Trump arrived from Los Angeles at LaGuardia Airport Tuesday morning, carrying aboard an Orthodox Jewish child with a rare and still undiagnosed breathing illness.

    The child, Andrew Ten, age 3, arrived with his parents — accompanied by three nurses who attend to him around the clock — to try to seek medical help in the New York area.

    Trump made his plane available for the special trip to New York after the boy’s parents, Judy and Harold Ten, called Trump and told him of their plight.

    Commercial airlines refused to fly the child because he could not travel without an elaborate life-support system, which includes a portable oxygen tank, a suction machine, a breathing bag and an adrenaline syringe.

    “Mr. Trump did not hesitate when we called him up. He said ‘yes, I’ll send my plane out,’” 29-year-old Harold Ten recalled shortly after he landed here Tuesday morning.

    Asked why he thought Trump made his private jet available, Ten replied, “Because he is a good man. He has three children of his own and he knows what being a parent is all about.”

    Ten said he believes that Trump fulfilled the Talmudic saying that “he who saves one person’s life is as if he saved the entire world.”

    Among the relatives at the airport to greet the child and his parents were the paternal grandparents of the sick boy.

    “Donald Trump is a miracle, just a miracle,” said grandmother Feigy Ten, who came to the airport with her husband, Phillip Ten.

    Both grandparents thanked Trump’s generosity over and over again.

    Andrew, who is called by his Hebrew name, Avraham Moshe, was taken from the airport to the Schneider Children’s Hospital of Long Island Jewish Medical Center for treatment and evaluation.

  73. It is very interesting how the new elites as I call them from the IT world used new media to enthrall and add their power to the old media to manufacture Obama. They were extraordinarily proud of this achievement and have profited enormously from it (at least for the time being) . But Trump seems to be flipping this on its head. The legacy media (networks, cable, publishing) have of course done their duty to quash but found a very loud and rambunctious push-back by the public. The new media who assumed their power as exhibited in 2008 would remain static are shocked! Those same tools are being used by Trump. Only better. Youtubes of nice looking and hilarious black ladies chewing out (and exposing Stassi like control tactics) legacy media! Facebook may have helped do in the manufactured Murdoch star Kelly when she was “unliked”. Twitter is not working in bullying and “othering” the “Trumpsters” who are happy as heck to say GFY right back. The “leaking” of Trump’s position paper on immigration on Scrib (new media info source) before being yanked as pre-mature is all the talk (horrors!) of Sen Sessions’ hand in it. The 1000 Reich of progressives through new media is not working out as planned.

  74. Karma intervened here last night, awakening me when CSPAN aired Trump with – what does wbb call him – ratboy I think. Anyway this is a heads up to watch Meet The Press today if you can.

    Donald Trump would reverse President Obama’s executive orders on immigration and deport all undocumented immigrants from the U.S. as president, he said in an exclusive interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd.
    “We’re going to keep the families together, but they have to go,” he said in the interview, which will air in full on NBC’s “Meet the Press” this Sunday.

  75. The Rock, Admin, Shadow, Lu, and all others here that are concerned for Hillary and her chances for winning to become our next President…

    I think most of you who have ever read anything i have posted here over the years know that I love Hill and Bill and have ever since I found Bill way back when hardly anyone had even heard of him yet…I, too, in my own way, have fought so many battles for them over the years…

    I was here…and elsewhere…fighting in the trenches for Hillary during the last primary season and have not been shy about stating how I feel about O…

    I say all of that as a preface to what is really beginning to worry me now…I hope I do not anger or disappoint any by being honest from my pov…

    …I am beginning to believe the next election is bigger than my love and admiration for Hillary…

    What do I mean by that? Who and What does the Democratic Party stand for now?

    ok, look at who currently is the model for representing the Democratic Party for the next election…

    representing the Dem Party we have Bernie Sanders, a self avowed Socialist

    we have a growing and demanding presence of a militant ‘Black Lives Matter’ group…and it is their intention to disrupt both political conventions…

    we have the Far Left virtually ‘running the show’ and determining what is allowed to be considered important for the Democratic Party of today…thus Hillary must puppet what they want…and dare not anger them…

    we have a strong presence and financial control exerted by George Soros…who wants open borders and the middle and lower classes enslaved to government control forever…

    …and we have our Torch Bearer, Hillary, who for whatever reason, be it that she is being blackmailed or sabotaged by O/Jarrett…or controlled by Soros…Hillary is not the same Hillary of 2008

    Hillary seems controlled to continue O’s presidency, and O was probably also controlled by the same sources now controlling what Hillary seems to say and do…so it seems Hillary is supposed to be a continuation of the status quo that represents the Democratic Party today…I, (we) want this Democratic Party redeemed…not continuing towards Socialism…

    so…I am at the point of wondering if Hillary will ever be able to be herself because the Democratic Party now is leaning socialistic and so far left

    for me, right now, when I compare what Hillary is talking about…many good things, equal pay, school tuition, etc…vs…

    what Donald Trump is talking about…

    REAL EQUAL and FAIR trade, BUILDING a wall to stop illegal immigration, a wall with a door to let in LEGAL immigration…

    …repealing and replacing Ocare- getting rid of the monopoly of insurance companies

    …creating jobs, and therby protecting Social Security and not cutting it

    …restoring respect…and some fear…of the USA again…and not being afraid to destroy obvious evil instead of letting it grow and do more and more barbaric harm…I don’t even know, does Hillary also avoid using the term “Islamic radicalism”?

    …DT does not care about being PC…he is not in the prison…he can break all the dishes…and old rules and methods…if that is “what it takes”…and I am beginning to believe that is what it is going to take…

    etc, etc, etc…

    comparing and contrasting right now…above and beyond anyone out there Donald is the CHANGE AGENT…I do not say that lightly or without some regret…however he is the person to really go in there and clean house and get rid of the unnecessary and keep what works…and create NEW ways of getting NEW and BETTER results

    He is not beholden to anyone nor does he have to face a line of special interest groups waiting for and EXPECTING payback…can we say the same for any Democratic or OTHER Repulican nominee right now?

    His hands are not tied…

    so this is a difficult…and also exciting time…Hillary seems very constrained to me…but again, it is early…very early…so everything can change again…

    however, when I am being really honest with myself…and still so idealistic about wanting my country to work again…to prosper…to be strong…to have some real HOPE for the future and yes, to be the best we can be…then I cannot ignore what I see…because of loyalty to any one person…I have to look at reality…

    so that is where I am with my ‘big picture analysis’ in real time…

    the bottom line, I am going to view this next election with my eyes WIDE OPEN…

    we will see how it goes and evolves, but I am not voting for O3…I still hope to see Hillary 1 go into battle…

    I don’t think that speech was so upbeat, but then again I’m against illegal immigration.
    it’s not the Republican party she needs to worry about, it’s obama, it’s always been obama.

    Breaks my heart, That the Clinton’s have NOT heeded Admin’s very loud and clear message.


  77. I lobe this comment, And Yes they are!!!! 😀

    The MSM really has no idea whats happening in America. These two women are just the tip of the spear. Ya gotta love these two!

  78. S, I hear you.

    I think the republicans have their own Soros – those Koch brothers, and the Chamber of Commerce (which apparently is what keeps republicans voicing support for amnesty).

    I like how Trump says he’ll keep families together (while deporting them). I don’t know how he’ll do that – many come here either pregnant or to get pregnant quickly so they can have an anchor baby to allow them to stay. Maybe MX gives citizenship to kids born to Mexicans outside of country, else it may be difficult to deport those children of illegals.

    But I hate when people say you can’t deport because you’ll break up the family – excuse me, who created the situation of someone coming in illegally? The illegal created the situation, they’re the ones who came illegally and had kids here, it was all in their control, it was their choice to put themselves in this situation. And you know even the American born kids speak Spanish, because it’s spoken in the home. And for many of them, they’ll be flying the same flag in MX that they fly here.

    That’s another thing. I just read about another kid who got in trouble going to high school with an American flag flying from his truck. And the reason O didn’t wear a flag pin at the beginning – he said he didn’t want to OFFEND anybody. This nonsense has to stop. This is our country and that is our flag. Anyone offended needs to leave – pronto! You come here because you want to be an American – or don’t come. Is Hillary strong enough to tell people that this is America, and this is our flag, and they can fly it anywhere? Or will SHE not want to offend anybody?

    I hear Hillary talking about more expensive programs. I want to hear an emphasis on jobs and the work ethic. I want the emphasis on hand-ups not hand-outs. I would like to see the entitlement situation cleaned up – there’s a lot of fraud. (And why do mothers of ADHD kids get hundreds of dollars a month? What expenses do they have because their kids have ADHD???? Give me a break. No wonder so many kids are diagnosed with it – it’s free money.)

    Anyway, we need an emphasis on the work ethic – and we need the jobs to go with it. I believe in assistance for the truly needy – but the fraud needs to be cleaned up. Even mentally handicapped people have jobs – they earn very little and do very menial work – but it’s for their self-esteem, they feel pride and a sense of contribution and normalcy.

    So enough with more, more, more programs – get people JOBS and instill a work ethic! Maybe we need lots of public service messages, maybe a lot of messages showing hard working people as heroes (not overpaid athletes and musicians) – but part of making America great again is the work ethic and not living off the taxpayers. 90 million people of working age are unemployed – and there are 204 million of working age in the US (ages 15-64). That’s 44% of our working age populace not working. This is a serious problem.

    Oh, there’s so much more. There are a lot of things (like putting US History and the constitution back into schools, ending the allowance of sharia law, getting rid of our basically no-go Muslim zones) that I don’t think Hillary will care about, because it’s her job as a loyal democrat to keep reinforcing the new multicultural push in the US (which I believe will lead to a civil war in the future). I think Trump will bring us back to the melting pot that served us so well for so long.

    I fear that Hillary is too beholden now to the official democratic lines – near socialism, globalism, multicultural, dumbing down of schools. I truly want to see America great again. I think she’s too into the government (taxpayers) providing for people who could provide for themselves. That’s just going to take us down the same spiraling path we’re currently on.

    And if it’s true that she’s controlled by Soros and whomever (other big donors), even if she becomes “Hillary 1” after the primaries, it would just be lies, manipulation. Soros would expect her to govern just as she’s campaigning now.

    I don’t want socialism, I don’t multiculturalism instead of the melting pot, I don’t want us compromising our principles just so people who don’t even want to be American don’t get offended, I don’t want us allowing every single person who wants to live here to flow across the border unimpeded (actually assisted, given free bus rides wherever they want to go!).

    I don’t want Obama III.

    And I believe Trump means what he says. And people across party lines are responding to him. I think he is good for the country. And yes, I think he is the change candidate – and, boy, do we need a change.

    As I said, people across party lines are responding to Trump’s message. He wants to do what the new silent majority wants done. Even if Hillary reverted to Hillary 1 in the general, how will she compete with him? She’d sound like she was suddenly copying everything he’s been saying all along.

    I put country before party and called myself a PUMA. Now I may have to put country before Hillary, as much as I have loved her.

    I honestly don’t know what my voting future will be.
    I’ve been heartbroken about Hillary. But now in my heart I feel hope again for my county, and it feels good.

  79. WOW! Here’s a story you definitely won’t hear about in the liberal media because it’s a positive story about Donald Trump! The parents of a critically ill 3-year-old boy called Mr.Trump and asked for his help as a last resort when commercial airlines refused to fly their child to New York so he could get cared for by the best medical specialists.

    Agreed. I will vote for Trump and Country if I think Hillary cannot serve it with the state of the Dimocratic Party. Soros and his open borders nihilism has to go. He lost his soul so long ago and has spent his life trying to destroy the souls of others, I believe, out of plain jealousy. If she cannot maintain her independence from the likes of him, she is not my candidate.

    If Trump succeeds, I do not think Hillary will be so sad to lose the election if it means the country will have a POTUS that will protect it and grow freedom and prosperity. I really believe her campaigns for office have been about service and are rooted in patriotism. I have never bought the greedy power seeking stuff. She has all that she needs except a country with a future of freedom and prosperity for those she leaves behind. This is what I believe are major motivations for both Trump and Hillary that gives me comfort should either succeed.

    With the failure of the global economy will come a struggle for the fate of the world. Will the elite gain the power for fascism and dominance of the masses or will there be a return to nationalism and independence. The path ahead may be very difficult for many.

    The struggle between good and evil is eternal.

    Donald Trump would reverse President Obama’s executive orders on immigration and deport all undocumented immigrants from the U.S. as president, he said in an exclusive interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd.
    “We’re going to keep the families together, but they have to go,” he said in the interview, which will air in full on NBC’s “Meet the Press” this Sunday.

    If he did that that would be called “restoring the status quo ante”—the state of affairs which existed BEFORE the illegal executive order was issued. The opposition will claim that is unrealistic–after they get done screaming racist, but their idea which is to keep them here–with the criminals safely ensconced in Sanctuary Cities, and bring a Cecil B DeMille cast of abuelos, bisquableos, madres, pardres, tias, tios, amigos, peros, gatas, zoros—and all their social problems and diseases with them, is not only absurd, and dysfuctional but unthinkable, except to Booosh who has not only thought about it and called it an act of love, but has made a binding commitment to the elites to do it. Arguably, this is reason enough to throw the elites in the gutter and stomp their heads in. Now where is that American Tourister gorilla, who does that little routine to one of their products to prove it is indestructible? Where is that sultan of swat when we need him? On, he is on disability, drawing an Obama pension, surviving on Obamacare. The question is, will he answer the bell, if we say please?

    You have eloquently expressed exactly how I feel about Hillary at this point. I am not a hero worshipper. I admired Hilary when she was a leader. Now she is anything but. I will vote for the best candidate for our country.
    This is a change election. Hillary says she is continuing her conversation with America but who the hell is she talking to? Only those brainwashed by the liberal media or those who just are devout fans can be enraptured by her positions.
    The majority of Americans dislike the Iran deal. Illegal immigration is at best un-American as it violates our laws.
    Retirees can’t endure more 0 interest rates and encroachments on Medicare. Working people need more jobs. I don’t see how Hillary reverses these positions at this point and she seems thrilled with them. I just don’t think it will resonate with the American people.

  83. wbboei: but their idea which is to keep them here–, is not only absurd, and dysfuctional but unthinkable,
    I cannot think of another time when anyone has called for their departure as if it was something which could be achieved. Now you and Trump within 24 hours. Two sound minds. Now that’s hope.

    I thought Chuck walked into a bit of dung asking Donald if DC people, who pay federal taxes, should be represented on The Hill for that gave Donald the chance to talk about the new hotel he’s building there, all the people he’s interfaced with because of that hotel, and how much he loves them.

  84. Citizen or not, how many of us would ever leave our children behind if forced to leave. Even if the children are citizens, it should be illegal for parents of minors to leave them behind.

    I have not counted Hillary out nor am I sure that Trump will make it to the finish line as an Independent.

    I am going to see how both of them evolve as the election goes on.

    Both the R and D parties stink, in my book.

    The best thing I discovered in 2008 was that

    I will never just vote party lines again…I am a free agent.

  86. Right now, all the polls are by party for the primary. I do not see any comparisons for Trump vs Clinton. And her polls show she can take the primary. What will need to happen for Hillary to be free to change her Soros/Obola position, is for her to significantly lose to Trump.

    Then she can announce that she has been listening to people and finally heard what they had to say and that she will represent the wishes of the American People. My guess is that her position on immigration is going to change a lot.

    Do you know what would happen to the housing market if 50 million illegals were sent home? It is already due to pop. If it does, then maybe it will not matter so much that millions more properties may be on the market or up for rent. But immigrant returns are otherwise a threat to popping it. What will the voters do if they thought Trump would devalue their properties? Trump has to have an understanding of all this.

    I would be happy to have them send home the criminals and deadbeats and keep the best of them. Then build the wall or not and enforce our border. Trump wants to build up the military. Make it National Defense at the border.

  87. Seems Turkey is no longer trusted……


    The United States and Germany said they will pull Patriot missile batteries from southern Turkey after a reassessment of the threats stemming from the conflict in neighboring Syria.

    The U.S. Patriots, in Turkey as part of a broader NATO mission since 2013, will be redeployed to the United States for upgrades, according to a joint Turkish-U.S. statement on Sunday.

    German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen announced at the weekend that Berlin would let its three-year Patriot mission lapse in January instead of seeking parliamentary approval to extend it.

    Germany, the United States and the Netherlands all deployed Patriots in early 2013 after Turkey asked its fellow NATO partners for help in protecting its territory amid an escalating civil war in Syria. The Dutch ended their mission earlier this year and were replaced by the Spanish.

    “The United States and NATO are committed to supporting Turkey’s security and regional stability,” the U.S.-Turkish statement said. “If needed, the United States is prepared to return Patriot assets and personnel to Turkey within one week.”

    The decision comes less than a month after Turkey opened its air bases to U.S. fighter jets launching air strikes against Islamic State in Syria.

    Von der Leyen said the nature of the threat to Turkey from Syria had changed from one stemming mainly from President Bashar al-Assad to that posed by jihadist rebels.

    “The threat in this war-torn region has shifted in focus,” she said in a statement on the German defense ministry’s website. “It now stems from the terror organization Islamic State. Therefore, we will remain engaged in the region in a continued effort to stabilize it.”

    The decision follows criticism from some German officials of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s military crackdown against Kurdish militants and his declaration last month that the peace process he initiated with the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in 2012 was effectively at an end.

    “The Erdogan government has invested a great deal in reconciliation with the Kurds,” German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said in an interview with the Bild am Sonntag newspaper. “It can’t allow all the bridges that have been built up over the course of this process to be torn down.”

    At the same time, Steinmeier warned against judging Turkey too quickly, noting that it was taking on more refugees from Syria and Iraq than any other country and coping with a major threat on its border from the civil war in Syria.


    The game is up for Erdogan.

    wbboei: but their idea which is to keep them here–, is not only absurd, and dysfuctional but unthinkable,
    What I am saying is they are not bringing their familia here.

    If they came here illegally, chain immigration has no application.

    If that means they must choose between a livilhood and their families, the answer is go home and be with your family. If you get are issued a lawful work permit, then you can work subject to its term.

    But your are not going to BOOTSTRAP your illegal act into legal residence for your family. That is not equitable at all. It is bullshit.

    And when the wining snivelling dagger wielding deranged liberal comes forward and threatens murder and mahem and demands to know how will you deport 40 million illegals.

    We will smile, pass them a malox (and a cionide pill) and say gently

    We say, heaven forbid, stop scaring the children.

    We will do the only decent and humane thing possible.

    We will send the people who hire them to jail.

    Whereupon, the jobs will dry up.

    Whereupon the welfare benefits will dry up.

    Whereupon they self deport.

    They will seek employment in Mexico at the new Ford plant, or with the Zeta crime family

    Faster than you can say fuck off Chamber of Commerce.

    Or we can send them to the Vatican, for the new Pope to minister too

    Provided he is not if too busy pouring over the communist manifesto.

    Sipping the kitchen sherry, and

    Saying render unto god what is god’s, to caesar what is caesar’s

    What the fuck are they talking about.

    Why should the taxpayer give a shit about defending Turkey at this point in history?

    That is the old anti Soviet bargain that relates back to 1947 and 1962.

    Now that they are killing Kurds who are fighting ISIS

    And playing games on allowing us to use their airfields

    And attempt to treat them as an ally is ridiculous.

    They are at best a neutral and at worst an adversary.

  90. Lets face it, the reason they defend them is the same reason the elites want open borders, namely to create a world market and world government to enforce it. For a world market to be functional there must be stability. But it is not worth spilling one drop of our blood or one dollar for. If that his what the elites want, let them self fund it, and when it fails, let them cover the losses, rather than passing them off to the middle class.

    Trump’s just released immigration policy paper advocates doing away with birthright citizenship. This has been used by both parties to chip away at immigration laws. One child born within US borders being used to entitle entire clans residency, benefits, etc. The concept of citizenship which includes duties such as supporting yourself, voting, and the bill of rights is projected onto children which doesn’t really mesh but has been successfully muddled in the mind of the public. The move to negate parental responsibility and transfer it to the “nation state” is part of this thinking. Children born in the US of non-citizen parents are really dual citizens in most cases and have full rights to return to residency of the birth parents home country. Watch for a huge amount of disinformation to be floated about “stateless” children. It is bosh. Doing away with birthright citizenship which has been abused horribly in recent decades is no longer viable nor beneficial to the country. Time to end it and it will solve a lot of fundamental immigration problems. This is from Sessions legal approach and philospy which makes great sense.

    Absolutely right.

    And let everyone who disagrees sign a personal contract guaranteeing life time wage and benefits for these “stateless children” our of their own pocket. Since these people of conscience are so puffy about the morality of this and so determined to a salve their overblown moral indignation, let’s put their moral commitment to a real test, whereby they assume that burden all by themselves. Just-do-it, or shut the fuck up, we could say to them. And watch them retreat faster than the Italian Army. Oh they will say it is a societal obligation, and the rebuttal is, well then fine, let society decide whether it is eager to sign the contract which you advocate, but are too hypocritical to assume yourself.

  93. I mean it. When one of these high falutin’ greeks tells everyone within earshot that America must assume the human flotsam and jestsom created by the tin horn dictators of the world, most of whom are personal friends of Obama, someone should hand that moral giant an envelope and a pen, and tell him to write out a personal check for $1 million dollars, hand it to you, and you will call in a Brinks truck to carry that check down to the save the children fund. If he wants to be generous, make it $10 million. And when he balks since his bluff has been called, just say relax, you can afford it. Just do it. You would not hestitate to give a check like that to some bundler, so why won’t you help the tiny children, you callous hyporitical mother fucker, and put down that martini glass because I want to smack you etc. Not exactly the applause and ain’t he great cudas he was expecting when he opened his big mouth and pretended to be a moralist, etc.

  94. They say the greatest tragedy is life is a failure to fulfill one’s potential.

    I take no position on that issue myself, because my potential is obviously limited by virtue of being Caucasian, over fifty and just biding my time until the death panel comes knocking. My only hope is that Father Gruber (PHD) comes to my bed, and brings some of the happy juice he has been shooting up, because there is something to be said for dying happy.

    But I feel very differently when it comes to Messiah Obama. For of all sad words of tongue and pen the saddest are these–it might have been. In the dying days of his tenure, it is imperative that he seek and obtain a personal audience with the head of ISIS, advise them that they are on the wrong side of history, and offer to take them and introduce them around to the Martha’s Vineyard crowd. If they insist on bringing their weapons, Obama can tell them, that’s okay, the only guns I ban are those that belong to the law abiding middle class. And if you are really nice, I will give you some of the guns that did not make their way into the fast and furious pipeline.

  95. Trump says he will confiscate all the money sent home to MX by illegals – but that would generate very little money for the wall, because only an idiot would keep trying to wire money home when it’s being confiscated…

    (and there are plenty of legal immigrants who wire money home – would the Western Union have to determine who is legal and who is not?)

    If they can confiscate cash being withdrawn from citizens bank accounts to battle possible law breaking they can confiscate wire transfers. They set up the system to do it. They didn’t dream it could/would be used against their own political allies. But hey, tough shit. And as for dragging cash over the border, nothing says you can’t have border patrol setting up roadblocks and search stations on THIS side of the border for anyone ENTERING Mexico. They can have a new industry-Cash coyotes heading the other direction and the federales will nab ’em and confiscate it themselves. The possibilities are endless.

  97. The FOX primary debate was a wake up call for me, about Rupert Murdock.

    He is a no good son of a bitch.

    Worse, he is a fucking globalist.

    Most disgusting, he talks about promoting democracy and growing economies

    He is the anti-Christ of democracy, the proponent of oligarchy and a colonialist.


    Keith Rupert Murdoch /ˈmɜrdɒk/,[8] AC, KCSG (born 11 March 1931) is an Australian American business magnate. Murdoch became managing director of Australia’s News Limited, inherited from his father Sir Keith Arthur Murdoch in 1952.[6][9] He is the founder, chairman and CEO of global media holding company News Corporation, the world’s second-largest media conglomerate, and its successors News Corp and 21st Century Fox after the conglomerate split on 28 June 2013.[10][11][12][13]

    In the 1950s and ’60s, he acquired various newspapers in Australia and New Zealand, before expanding into the United Kingdom in 1969, taking over the News of the World followed closely by The Sun. He moved to New York City in 1974 to expand into the US market, but retained interests in Australia and Britain. In 1981, he bought The Times, his first British broadsheet, and became a naturalised US citizen in 1985 to satisfy the legal requirement for US television ownership.[9]

    In 1986, keen to adopt newer electronic publishing technologies, he consolidated his UK printing operations in Wapping, causing bitter industrial disputes. His News Corporation acquired Twentieth Century Fox (1985), HarperCollins (1989)[14] and The Wall Street Journal (2007). He formed the British broadcaster BSkyB in 1990, and during the 1990s expanded into Asian networks and South American television. By 2000, Murdoch’s News Corporation owned over 800 companies in more than 50 countries with a net worth of over $5 billion.

    In July 2011, Murdoch faced allegations that his companies, including the News of the World, owned by News Corporation, had been regularly hacking the phones of celebrities, royalty and public citizens. He faces police and government investigations into bribery and corruption by the British government and FBI investigations in the US.[15][16] On 21 July 2012, Murdoch resigned as a director of News International.[17][18] On July 1, 2015, Murdoch left his post as CEO of 21st Century Fox.[19]


    Political activities in the United States[edit]
    McNight (2010) identifies four characteristics of his media operations: free market ideology; unified positions on matters of public policy; global editorial meetings; and opposition to a liberal bias in other public media.[105]

    On 8 May 2006, the Financial Times reported that Murdoch would be hosting a fund-raiser for Senator Hillary Clinton’s (D-New York) Senate re-election campaign.[106] In a 2008 interview with Walt Mossberg, Murdoch was asked whether he had “anything to do with the New York Post’s endorsement of Barack Obama in the democratic primaries.” Without hesitating, Murdoch replied, “Yeah. He is a rock star. It’s fantastic. I love what he is saying about education. I don’t think he will win Florida… but he will win in Ohio and the election. I am anxious to meet him. I want to see if he will walk the walk.”[107][108] Murdoch is a strong supporter of Israel and its domestic policies.[109]

    In 2010, News Corporation gave $1 million to the Republican Governors Association and $1 million to the conservative U.S. Chamber of Commerce.[110][111][112] Murdoch also served on the board of directors of the libertarian Cato Institute.[113] He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.[114] Murdoch is also a supporter of the Stop Online Piracy Act and Protect Intellectual Property Act.[115]

    Murdoch is a supporter of more open immigration policies in western nations generally.[116] In the United States, Murdoch and chief executives from several major corporations, including Hewlett-Packard, Boeing and Disney joined New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to form the Partnership for a New American Economy to advocate “for immigration reform – including a path to legal status for all illegal aliens now in the United States.”[117] The coalition, reflecting Murdoch and Bloomberg’s own views, also advocates significant increases in legal immigration to the United States as a means of boosting America’s sluggish economy and lowering unemployment. The Partnership’s immigration policy prescriptions are notably similar to those of the Cato Institute and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce—both of which Murdoch has supported in the past.[118]

    The Wall Street Journal editorial page has similarly advocated for increased legal immigration, in contrast to the staunch anti-immigration stance of Murdoch’s British newspaper, The Sun.[119] On 5 September 2010, Murdoch testified before the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law Membership on the “Role of Immigration in Strengthening America’s Economy.” In his testimony, Murdoch called for ending mass deportations and endorsed a “comprehensive immigration reform” plan that would include a pathway to citizenship for all illegal immigrants.[117]

    In the 2012 U.S. Presidential election, Murdoch was critical of the competence of Mitt Romney’s team but was nonetheless strongly supportive of a Republican victory, tweeting: “Of course I want him [Romney] to win, save us from socialism, etc.”[120]

    In May 2013, Murdoch purchased the Moraga Estate, an estate, vineyard and winery in Bel Air, Los Angeles, California.[121][122]

    The GOP should quit treating these families as second class citizens
    [Paraphrased] A young woman interviewed on street by NBC; the plan is ugly, mean-spirited.
    IMO. Hillary has been looking relaxed and more feminine than I’m accustomed to seeing her so I’m hoping that is a harbinger of better times for her. & would be nice if that translated to good news about her here.

  101. A young woman interviewed on street by NBC; the plan is ugly, mean-spirited.
    NBC cut through a crowd of 100 to find one brain dead moron who was willing to make a fool of herself, by parroting the NBC narrative.

    By now, one would think that even a public who are as stupid as our electorate is able to understand the they are being hosed.

  102. So, what do you think of the plan to send 25,000 US ground troops back to Iraq to seize the oil fields, occupy them on a permanent basis, and consfiscate the revenue for the United States?

    Do you think we should invade Iraq again?

  103. …ugly, mean-spirited.

    And criminal illegal aliens murdering, rampaging, raping, terrorizing people isn’t? If this is their default argument it isn’t going to work this year with them beating people over the head with it like they did last year. They need to remember we’ve already been called “racist!” and slack jawed idiots. The citizenry isn’t shocked or awed and have been desensitized to the name calling.

  104. The next time we have a major crisis in this country we will be watching to make sure that the elites make sacrifices to the common good commensurate with their wealth, before they ask the rest of us to belly up to the bar. What we saw in the last crisis was the middle class being wiped out while the elites prospered, because they rigged the system so that the profits were privatized and the losses were socialized. The same thing happened in the civil war, when they bought their way out of service in the war, and then capitalized on the spoils once it was over. It did not happen so much during WWII, which was fought mainly by reservists and draftees. In that war, the elites fought along side the rest of us, as we saw with JFK and with Bush the elder. But this generations of elitists are too narcissistic to do what is right, and thereby earn what family, friends and dumb luck have bestowed on them.

  105. And criminal illegal aliens murdering, rampaging, raping, terrorizing people isn’t? If this is their default argument it isn’t going to work this year with them beating people over the head with it like they did last year. They need to remember we’ve already been called “racist!” and slack jawed idiots. The citizenry isn’t shocked or awed and have been desensitized to the name calling.
    Absolutely right.

    The charge “racist” is tantamount to a personal attack.

    The instinctive response is either fight or flight.

    The initial response by the public was no, no, I’m sorry, I love black people, etc.

    In a word: flight.

    Seeing how effective the tactic was, the democrat party EN MASSE embraced it.

    As did the RINO in the case of Mississippi.

    But this doubling down produced two unintended consequences:

    First, an enlarged sense of entitlement by blacks, fanned by big media, and-

    Second, a subtle, but growing backlash among whites, which has only just begun

    Such that now, when they accuse us of racism

    The response is not flight, but fight.

    And when we see the crime statistics committed by illegals

    And someone tells us it is racist to consider empirical evidence

    We will be ignored, dismissed and laughed at.

    And if they persist, then we will just have to take their head off.

  106. It gauls me that Murdock claims to be for democracy.

    The kind of democracy he favors draws its essence not from the American Revolution of 1776, but the French Revolution of 1788. It governs through the institution of “plebescite” which refuses to give the people legitimate policy choices, by gives them only one choice, which they confirm. That is what this endless polling is all about—draft the poll questions in such a way as to elicit answers that give the appearance of a continuing mandate, and vilify contrary bodies of opinion. That kind of democracy elevates the demagogue to power and sustains him as he subordinates the nation to his will, or, as here, eliminates the culture and structures of sovereignty, and facilitates the rise of global government. This is why in his book The Republic, Plato called democracy the worst form of government. He knew people like Murdock three thousand years before they were born.

    You omit one fact in your hypothetical.

    And, it is a material one.

    Donald was AGAINST invading Iraq in the first place.

    He knew it would destabilize the region,

    And, not surprisingly, it has done exactly that.

    ISIS owes its existence to Bush, and Obama.

    As between ISIS and Obama there can be no question who the JV player is.

    The JV jockstrap is Barack Hussein Obama, mascot of the elites.

    A “rockstar” as Murdock called him.

    And a destroyer of worlds.

  109. I’m not sure how someone could have opposed the Iraq war invasion then and be in favor of a new Iraq war invasion now, especially a colonization effort, purely to seize natural resources. Even Dick Cheney and Lindsay Graham aren’t that hawkish (maybe).

    Snip Trump’s plan was endorsed by Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who chairs a Senate subcommittee on immigration. “This is exactly the plan America needs,” Sessions said in a statement. Snip
    On Sunday, Ohio Gov. John Kasich echoed Trump’s call to finish construction of an incomplete system of barriers on the nation’s southern border with Mexico. There are still gaps in the barriers, which have been under construction since 2005.
    Speaking on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Kasich said he would “finish the wall” but would then work to legalize 12 million immigrants now estimated to live in the U.S. illegally. Kasich said he would “make sure we don’t have anybody – any of the criminal element here.” He would also revive the guest-worker programs that previously brought in temporary workers to aid in farming and other industries hobbled by labor shortages.
    Most other GOP candidates also back completing the border wall but differ over how to treat immigrant families already living in the U.S. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush recently released his own immigration plan calling for the use of forward bases and drones to guard the border, but also backing an eventual plan to legalize the status of immigrant families. Bush disagrees with Obama’s use of executive actions to unilaterally enforce the policy.
    Florida Sen. Marco Rubio worked with senators from both parties to develop a comprehensive plan in 2013 that would have legalized the status of many immigrant families. But Congress balked at the idea as tea party Republicans opposed the deal and Rubio has since backed away from his support.

    I used to believe policy decisions matter.

    In some abstract sense, they still do.

    But in a practical sense they are irrelevant.

    Globalists are the real enemy.

    And our elites are in bed with them.

    They lie to us routinely.

    And politics is a rigged game.

    Inverted totalitarianism

    Managed democracy

    Is what our political system is all about.

    The only candidate big enough to change this is Trump.

    That is the only thing that matters.

    Changing the corrupt status quo is the categorical imperative.

    There is no policy question more urgent than that.

  112. The wall is a convenient symbol.

    But you would not need a wall if you sent the people who hire illegals to jail.

    They would self deport.

  113. The entire push behind illegal immigration is to merge the political systems as well as the economies of the North and South American nations into a single entity, thereby erasing sovereignty. Furthermore, it is no accident that they are erasing the history, religion and culture of this nation, all to the same end.

  114. I’m not sure how someone could have opposed the Iraq war invasion then and be in favor of a new Iraq war invasion now, especially a colonization effort, purely to seize natural resources. Even Dick Cheney and Lindsay Graham aren’t that hawkish (maybe).
    A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds.

    Change the facts, I change my answers, what do you do?

    And what would you say if the internal security of the United States depended on establishing stability in the Middle East. Do you really believe that after Obama gives Iran $150 billion they will not use that money to finance terrorism here, there and everywhere. If we did go back in, would history repeat itself or would we learn from past mistakes.

  115. You are mischaracterizing what Donald has said. This is not a seizure of oil to enrich ourselves. It is a seizure of oil to deny it to terrorists and putting the proceeds in escrow for the Iraqi People. The military and administrative cost would be paid from that fund, rather than by the taxpayer. The balance would go the the Iraqi people.

    Here is your answer:

    As President Obama pushes for his controversial deal with Iran, a newly discovered document in the Pakistan tribal region reveals that America’s enemies are on the march. Intelligence officials were shocked to learn that ISIS is moving into Afghanistan just as President Obama is withdrawing troops there. This fits a pattern: As Obama retreats from Iraq, Libya and now Afghanistan, ISIS takes over.

    As Israel’s Arutz Sheva reports:

    Intelligence officials are comparing a newly discovered secret Islamic State document to Hitler’s “Mein Kampf,” as it blames Israel for the rise of the Islamic State and crowns U.S. President Barack Obama as the “Mule of the Jews.”

    Found in Pakistan’s remote tribal region by the American Media Institute, the 32-page Urdu language document promotes an “end of the world” battle as a final solution. It argues that the Islamic leader should be recognized as the sole ruler of the world’s one billion Muslims, under a religious empire called a “caliphate.”

    “It reads like the caliphate’s own Mein Kampf,” said a U.S. intelligence official, who reviewed the document. “While the world is watching videos of beheadings and crucifixions in Iraq and Syria the Islamic State is moving into North Africa the Middle East, and now we see it has a strategy in South Asia. It’s a magician’s trick, watch this hand and you’ll never see what the other is doing.”



    If you’re keeping score, in the past month Trump has bitch-slapped the entire Republican Party, redefined our expectations of politics, focused the national discussion on immigration, proposed the only new idea for handling ISIS, and taken functional control of FOX News. And I don’t think he put much effort into it. Imagine what he could do if he gave up golf.

    As far as I can tell, Trump’s “crazy talk” is always in the correct direction for a skilled persuader. When Trump sets an “anchor” in your mind, it is never random. And it seems to work every time.

    Now that Trump owns FOX, and I see how well his anchor trick works with the public, I’m going to predict he will be our next president. I think he will move to the center on social issues (already happening) and win against Clinton in a tight election.


  118. One of the things that has recently dawned on me, is that the one thing we all have in common, is that we all voted and supported Hillary in 2008..
    It now amazes me that I am not the only one that supported Hillary while hating her stance on immigration.

    I don’t think any Big Pinker on this site is for the darn Dream Act nor amnesty.

    Trump has found the things that many of us believe in, and his attacks against Obama policies are what we have all been waiting for.

    I am beyond angry that Hillary isn’t the one that is going against Obama’s corrupt policies.

    I hope Bill gave the Fraud a piece of his mind on that golf course.

  119. I think I see a recent tie in with the Dreamers and “birthright” citizenship children in another story being flacked by the media. Some actress is shrieking that her dual citizenship children who were born in the US were “deported” and “abandoned” by the US government when a court awarded primary physical custody to their German national father. She even tried to withhold custody after a summer visit in which a court made her hand them over in the courthouse. I looked it up because it sounded so bizarre.

    First off children belong with parents. If parents are not in the US they belong with parent(s) where ever they live. Citizenship is not residency and residency is not citizenship and custody of children is not either of the aforementioned two things. Like I said earlier children born in the US with birthright or dual citizenship are not being denied citizenship or US residency when they attain adulthood if they live with birth parent(s) in another country. Anyway this German guy (who the court has found to be a better parent) can’t or won’t live in the US and he doesn’t have to to have custody of his US/German dual citizen children. The same legal principles would apply to US citizen birthright children of illegal aliens. You are responsible for your own children irregardless of their dual citizenship and you take them with you when you leave. The children aren’t being deported. They are staying with custodial parents. Watch the coming shrieking that American citizen children are being “deported”. They aren’t.

    So, what do you think of the plan to send 25,000 US ground troops back to Iraq

    Well, if you tell your friend don’t do that, it is really dangerous and stupid and you may get burned or burn down the neighborhood, and they do it anyway, do you call the fire department and drag your friend out of the burning building or do you just sit there and say you really shouldn’t have done that as he burns up with the neighborhood. Sometimes you have to clean up other people’s stupidity so it doesn’t spread. It really happens in the real world all the time. That is why do don’t let stupid and foolish people have explosives.

    Illegals go back all the time. They visit grandma, take stuff back to sell (like stolen pick-up trucks), make themselves scarce when the police are looking for them, haul large amounts of cash to purchase property, etc. The biggest outcry last year from the illegal hordes moving en masse was being hassled at the border. The Mexican government wants a turnstile not a border. The Mexican government wants people driving, swimming and walking in at will both directions. Of course they cracked down hard on their own southern border when they belatedly figured out that Obama and his globalist pals were using Central and South Americans to gobble up resources and drive down wages of illegal MEXICANS. When Trump says the Mexican government is smart I say they aren’t very smart if they didn’t see that one coming.

    Well, of course, I can’t help but focus on the continuing failure of big media to simply tell the truth.

    They can’t do it.

    As an institution given wider latitude and discretion than any other, one that is immune from the checks and balances that apply to all other governmental–or in this case, quasi governmental institutions they are free to be as reckless and irresponsible as they please, and as committed to pursuing their own perverse interests at the expense of the nation.

    Yet, they cannot and they will not tell us what we have a right to know.

    They make a hollow mockery out of their claim that they speak truth to power.

    I commend you for sensing that this latest story is bullshit and for having the time, energy and interest to run it to the ground.

    Big media relies on people not doing that, which leaves them free to tell any lie, the bigger the better.

    And the worst of it, now that they have become a monopoly and a wholly owned subsidiary of big business, they do the bidding of their masters, not their audience.

    In that sense, their betrayal parallels the betrayal by the political parties. They too claim to be something they are not, while doing the bidding of big business.

    Historian Charles Beard, who was famous before he became infamous, for maintaining an isolationist point of view prior to WWII, and for deploring the system of inverted totalitarianism, managed democracy and the security state which emerged in its aftermath would be pleased to see that more people today realize the game that is being played against them, but far less than we need. Most remain comfortably ignorant, seduced by bright shiny objects, terrified by things that go bump in the night.

    ““Personally I slightly fell in love with Marco Rubio at the last Republican National Convention because I thought he told a great personal narrative in a compelling way,” said Thomson.”

    “He said concerns among senior Republicans that he only had one speech to tell and that people had already heard it were overdone.”
    http://blogs.ft.com/the-world/2015/08/news-corp-chief-tips-rubio-to-trump-trump/ So I guess since !Jeb is looking like a nag running last in the race they will switch to the younger filly Rubio who can emote more.

    Murdoch has his flunkies out discussing US presidential candidates like they are his shoe shine boys. In Australia. “Asked about the state of Australian politics, Mr Thomson suggested things were not going in the correct direction, saying: “Australia is in the right part of the world geographically speaking but it is not in the right zone politically speaking.” They really hate Tony Abbott too. Such hubris, gall and sneering.

  124. I was going through some old photos of big media events, and noticed one in particular, of Tim Russert, Senior Vice President and Bureau Chief NBC News looking every bit the Neandrathal man he was, and beside him, Andrea, Chief Foreign Affairs correspondent at the First Amendment dinner for other correspondents on the auspicious occasion of her receiving an award which bore the name of some obscure big media luminary nobody ever heard of outside their circles. And it struck me, these people give themselves more awards than anyone, including the generals in the Viet Nam war who were too busy losing the war to pay attention to anything but their own career advancement. The entire purpose of this exercise is to build solidarity and to make sure everyone stays on the reservation and thus hues to the big media narrative against all indications that is may be untrue and at times unraveling. It is like a fraternity or sorority in that sense. I am sure Andrea deserved that award, and 10 others besides, but it is the general phenomenon I am commenting on, and why they should not be listened to by serious people who want to know the truth.

  125. So I guess since !Jeb is looking like a nag running last in the race they will switch to the younger filly Rubio who can emote more.
    It has been my guess all along that it would come to this–Marco the red.

    I thought Cruz would be the competing candidate, but it now appears it will be Trump.

    That is far better, because Trump is like lightening in a bottle.

    As for Thompson, somebody needs to put some salt peter in his diet.

    How does he write such purple prose–like I fell slightly in love with Rubio?

    How can he look himself in the mirror the following morning.

    What a putz he is.

    I disagree about the housing market. My town has been invaded by illegal immigrants- mostly poor and many living in overcrowded illegal living conditions. They have caused neighboring property values to drop, caused taxes to rise as schools are overcrowded and the town has had to increase police and code enforcement personnel to try to deal with the mess.

    The demand they placed on housing drove costs up beyond what many locals could afford living legally. Many illegal residents were given mortgages they couldn’t afford and have now gone into foreclosure. American taxpayers have picked up a lot of that tab!

    After 4 years or more, many of the illegal immigrants have finally been foreclosed out of the homes and heavy fines from code enforcement have made property owners evict the renters. The result in my neighborhood is that homes have returned to single family use and property values are stronger. I now have a lovely new neighbor, an immigrant from Mexico who has been here at least 12 years. She speaks fluent English, has had a steady job, was a social worker in Mexico and has 2 kids in college. I assume she is here legally. If not, someone like this, self supporting and Fluent in English, should be given an opportunity to apply for permanent residence. I don’t believe that anyone who entered and remained in the country illegally should have a path to citizenship and the right to vote.

    …..What a putz he is.

    “Mr Thomson’s audience included his 84-year-old employer Rupert Murdoch and his son Lachlan Murdoch..” Lachlan? Do I sense a Scottish rivalry with the son of the late Outer Hebrides beauty Mrs Trump mother of The Donald? Whose kid is more successful and popular? I’d say Donald since I never heard of Lack-land.

    Thompson is just another paid media shill regurgitating his owners insanity only he is an executive. Reminds me of “tingle down my leg” Matthews. Please guys. Let’s not get too personal or graphic.

  128. Tipping point, or preference cascade running fast, reached with Trump at Iowa state fair and the position paper on immigration. “Halperin was asked his writing that “Most importantly, we’ve reached a turning point with Trump, the major establishment campaigns of both parties now think Trump could win Iowa, and most of them think he could win the nomination, and a significant number think he could win the White House.” And that the campaigns were in “full freak out mode.” http://www.breitbart.com/video/2015/08/17/halperin-trump-reached-turning-point-most-estab-cands-think-he-can-win-nomination/

    Halperin: Trump Reached ‘Turning Point,’ ‘Most’ Estab Cands Think He Can Win Nomination

    Bloomberg Politics Managing Editor Mark Halperin stated that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has “reached a turning point” where the “establishment candidates” think he can win Iowa, “most” believe he can win the nomination, and “a significant number think he could win the White House” on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

    Halperin was asked his writing that “Most importantly, we’ve reached a turning point with Trump, the major establishment campaigns of both parties now think Trump could win Iowa, and most of them think he could win the nomination, and a significant number think he could win the White House.” And that the campaigns were in “full freak out mode.”

    He said, “Trump may not end up as the nominee, but right now, he’s changed the race, not just leading in the Fox poll, but coming to the fair. I’ve been to the fair with Barack Obama at his peak, Sarah Palin at her peak, with other candidates, George Bush. The reception Trump got here was not just about celebrity. I walked with him for 45 minutes after the helicopter ride, he came to the fair, and people were yelling things to him with passion. ‘Save us,’ ‘You’re the only one who can stop Hillary,’ ‘Thank you for making America great again.’ The other campaigns — the other leading Republican campaigns, monitored Trump’s behavior here. And that was part, along with the Fox poll, and along with the developments of the last couple of weeks, of them saying, as you just quoted, they now believe Trump can win Iowa.”

    Host Joe Scarborough then remarked, “that really changes everything in this campaign about how they react to him.” Halperin agreed with this point.

  130. a sliver of morning ‘news’ life…

    btw…monitoring tv coverage of Trump…msnbc, especially MJ are becoming cheerleaders for Trump, including critics…ie, Nicolle Wallace, from former Bush and McCain camps…she has been very insulting and disparging of Trump, calling him hideous, etc…she commented this AM that her own father told her to ‘knock it off’ and that he loves Trump and what he is doing and is going to vote for him…same with JS’s educated and staunch republican brother…voting for Trump

    …suddenly NW has even changed her tune pointing out positives of DT

    not to say there are not still some critics, but the “tone” of msnbc/nbc is changing…towards DT

    even Steve Clemons kind of giving DT backhanded kudos…

    interesting times…

    And they weren’t wrong either.

    It is the “come to Jesus” moment. And the ratings (or clicks) of anything Trump deigns to appear on or be interviewed by were handed out. No ratings no ads. No ratings no salary. No Trump no nothing. The days of browbeating and insulting their viewers/readers is effectively over. I mean there are 900 other tv channels and maybe a million websites with pictures of cats. They are also fueling the a la carte rebellion going on with cable. Who wants to pay to be insulted by ninnies and @$$holes? Not I said the ex-Fox viewer.

    I knew it. The media is already asking Trump if he is going to “deport” US citizen kids with their illegal alien parents. He needs to get out in front of this. US citizen children living with non citizen parents are not deported. They are in the legal custody of non-resident parent. A federal court and the US State Department have already said this.

    Hmmm, kinda sounds like an Obama supporter here.

    Not going against ISIS is like walking in front of a freight train with your eyes closed.

  140. No one likes to put our troops in harms way, and the war Bush started was insane, with no WMDs, just to get Saddam…

    but now the consequences of pulling out too early by the Fraud has allowed ISIS to form, and they are barbaric, crazy and need to be stopped before they get their hands on NUKES.

  141. Hi Shadowfax,

    I haven’t commented here in a long time but I have continued to read. But I just had to add that in addition to the reasons you gave for sending troops another idea appeals to me. The idea to capture the oil for America and to use some of the profits to give reparations to our wounded warriors and to the families who lost loved ones in the Bush/Chaney insane war and the Obama’s insane surrender.

    I would love to see the wounded warriors and the bereaved families set up for life.

  142. the Us military when not constrained by obamas rules of engagement would kick the shit out of isis with very few casualties.

    and they would enjoy doing it for a president they respect and love.

  143. Admin:

    Jindal’s “me too” must hurt Ben Domenech (whom we cite in our article below) the most because Domenech race-baited Trump’s illegal immigration plan using Bobby Jindal as his foil (a photo of Trump in full Seig Heil salute is included for subtlety). Now it’s back to the race-baiting board for Domenech as Bobby Jindal follows the leader – Donald J. Trump.
    From Wiki:


    Domenech was hired by the Washington Post’s online arm to write a blog providing “a daily mix of commentary, analysis and cultural criticism”.[25] Media Matters for America criticized the choice, claiming that “[t]here [were], however, no progressive bloggers — and no one left of center with the credentials of a political operative — on washingtonpost.com to provide balance to Domenech.”[26] Instapundit founder Glenn Reynolds told the New York Times that Domenech’s appointment attracted anger “because he was a conservative and he was given real estate at The Washington Post” and this spurred bloggers to find “something they could use to get rid of him.”[27]

    “Red America” launched on March 21, 2006, but Domenech resigned three days later after only six posts, after other bloggers posted evidence that Domenech had plagiarized work from the Washington Post, The New Yorker, humorist P. J. O’Rourke, and several other writers. O’Rourke denied Domenech’s claim that the humorist had granted permission to use his words, adding that he could not recall ever meeting the college student.[10] Editors for Domenech’s college newspaper, The Flat Hat, denied allegations by Domenech that one instance of plagiarism was because the editors had “inserted a passage from the New Yorker in an article without his knowledge,” saying that “Mr. Domenech’s actions, if true, [were] deeply offensive.”[28] On March 24, 2006, the editors of National Review confirmed on its blog The Corner[29] that Domenech appeared to have plagiarized for at least one article he had written for that publication. Washington Post online editor Jim Brady announced Domenech’s resignation saying “[a]n investigation into these allegations [of plagiarism] was ongoing, and in the interim, Domenech has resigned, effective immediately.”[30]

    After initially denying the plagiarism allegations, Domenech apolgized, writing in a RedState post entitled “Contrition,” that “[t]here is no excuse for this…. I hope that nothing I’ve done as a teenager or in my professional life will reflect badly on the movement and principles I believe in.”[31]

    More recently, Domenech was involved in a journalism scandal that resulted in the removal of his work from The Washington Examiner and the Huffington Post when it was disclosed that Domenech received $36,000 from Joshua Trevino, a conservative pundit and lobbyist, to write favorable opinion pieces about the government of Malaysia without disclosing the relationship. The payments came to light when Trevino registered as a foreign agent of the Malaysian government.[32]

    After disclosure of the payments, The Washington Examiner and San Francisco Examiner, removed Domenech’s post from its website and replaced it with an editors’ note saying that “the author of this item presented content for which, unbeknownst to us, and in violation of our standards, had received payment from a third party mentioned therein — a payment which he also failed to disclose.” The Washington Examiner owned the San Francisco Examiner at the time and content was shared.[32]
