Ethnomusicology 2016: Music For #Hillary2016 @RealDonaldTrump @CarlyFiorina @BernieSanders @MarcoRubio #DraftBiden #FeelTheBern

Pictures fail. Spanish fails. English fails. Perhaps music is the only language sufficiently capable of describing the 2016 campaign.

As non-stop coverage of the papal visit to the east coast consumes most of the TV shows, now is the time to put typical analysis to the side. Today we visit the other realm of human communication. Music, the truly great communicator.

While we have not spent much time this year on the left side of the political world, we soon will once the first debate takes place. For now, there really is not much to talk about that we have not already written about though. The way to destroy Hillary Clinton is to tie her to Obama. Hillary2016 is falling apart, not because of the scandals or emails or somesuch, it’s Obama that hurts Hillary2016. This email business is only important as a measure of how much Obama hates Hillary and what he will do to actively and overtly nuke Hillary. The only drama there is when Hillary will wake up from her slumbers and get rid of the Obama people (hello, Joel Benenson) surrounding her like so many bars on a cage.

Until the purge comes, there is not much more for us to say. While we once suggested musical themes for Hillary2016 of a more upbeat nature we think that now something along the lines of a fire alarm bell is the tonal range Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 requires to hear.

As to the Hillary2016 competition… no words or pictures, no #BlackLivesMatter attacks, do better than music to capture the charms and prospects of Bernie Sanders.



Joe Biden? Mourning Joe provides his own musical selection for 2016 so we do not have to creatively search for music that captures his essence:



That clip of musical truth really summarizes Mourning Joe Biden and his self-pitying campaign doesn’t it? Will Joe get more than the less than one percent of the vote he got in 2008?

In the same way that the villages idiot video captures the prospects for Mourning Joe, the dear departed Scott Walker should have um, listened, to what the musical soothsayers foretold.



If Walker only would have listened, he would not have run. As it turned out the Walker campaign was only a, um, sleepwalk:



Which led to:



Tough lesson for a boy from landlocked Wisconsin. As Walker went under, crushed by a massive wave, he tried to huff up a campaign against the GOP frontrunner and grassroots revolution. Walker failed to be the leader so now he wants to lead a rear guard action against reality. The plan continues to be to save Jeb Bush with suicide attacks by pawns.

Pawns such as Carly Fiorina.

Pawns such as Carly Fiorina can’t possibly think they have a chance to win. The GOP race is fixed for JeBush. Only one man can stop JeBush from becoming the GOP nominee. So either Carly Fiorina willingly sacrifices herself to help JeBush or Carly Fiorina thinks she really can win. In either case…



Ben Carson? This pawn thinks nice and easy does it every time.



Unfortunately, Ben Carson is no Sinatra. Carson can’t make it anywhere, and certainly not New York, New York. Nice ain’t enough.

Ted Cruz. There’s something off-key about this cat. He’s smart. He’s good with words… but not with the music. Still, his future lies as a lounge act or second banana somewhere. Greased hair, too tight suit, a microphone…



Maybe he just needs a makeover?

Then there is Marco Rubio. Rubio thinks he’s cuter than he is. Rubio thinks he’s smoother than he is. But Rubio’s not cute enough to make voters forget his illegal immigration amnesty tricks.



The Chamber of Commerce can afford what’s on the price tag. Balding dog… for sale… cheap.

There are a bunch of other wannabees waiting for the sails on their ships to fill up and take them to never-never land. They are leaves in a breeze. They’re dust in the wind. Anywhere the wind blows doesn’t matter to them, that’s the position they will take.



Then there is Jeb. Jeb Bush. JeBush. There’s a certain fin de siècle quality to JeBush. JeBush is like a once grand house that has been repainted but the structural damage is evident no matter how many decorators are called in. The mold is everywhere. The termites, like rust, munching day and night without rest. The musty air, trapped in windows that long ago refused to be opened.

JeBush himself, refurbished with a thinning diet, armed with dusty sayings that worked to elect former members of the household to the peerage… JeBush himself has a sort of Fall of the House of Usher decrepitness. We’re tempted to say he’s on the Road to Nowhere, or Road to Ruin, but there is something more Bellatrix Lestrange to JeBush… something oddly Kate Bush….



As for the “Humble” frontrunner – he could sing the Sinatra standard New York, New York with convincing lack of humility. He could also rock your world inside out. But that’s not what “Humble” does. “Humble” leads a movement.



He’s a Rebel Rouser.

    John Boehner’s resignation spells trouble for Jeb Bush

    (CNN)As if Jeb Bush needed another problem.

    House Speaker John Boehner’s abrupt resignation Friday — after an insurrection by grassroots activists infuriated at the failure of Washington Republicans to thwart President Barack Obama — was another bad omen for a campaign wilting amid anti-establishment fury.

    In the 2016 presidential race, outsiders are in, insiders are out and the messy power struggle that is splintering the GOP is going to make winning the nomination — and then capturing the White House — very tough for a party standard bearer like Bush.

    Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina are dominating the GOP presidential primary following a summer of anger powered by conservative activists, Tea Party agitators and talk radio provocateurs. Candidates like Bush, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, meanwhile, have been overtaken by events, with the traditional GOP path to the nomination blocked by scorched earth insurgents. [snip]

    Trump, who is positioning himself as the ultimate outsider and galvanizing grassroots conservatives to power his anti-establishment crusade, said Boehner’s announcement showed that it was time “to get back to business.”

    “We want people that are going to get it done,” he said addressing Boehner’s decision at the Washington summit where he arrived carrying his Bible. “They get elected. They’re full of vim and vigor. They’re going to change things… They come down to these magnificent vaulted ceilings that you see all over Washington. And what happens? They become different people.”

    For his part, Bush simply took to Twitter to praise Boehner’s career.

  2. Lol, must have been fun putting this post together!

    I have often thought 2 things with Cruz, voice lessons and a make over!.

    Trump, Rebel Rouser…perfect, especially with the demise of the Southern man..you almost wish Trump would wrap himself in a Confederate flag…

  3. Pictures fail. Spanish fails. English fails. Perhaps music is the only language sufficiently capable of describing the 2016 campaign.

    Bravo Admin.

    Bravo.

    Next– the bouquet of roses.

    And the endless curtain calls.

    Ultimately, it gets back to something Monteverdi said

    (No goddamnit, not Verdi, Monteverdi, the inventor of opera)

    That which is too absurd too counter-intuitive too nonsensical to be said in words

    Can only be said in opera

    In this case, Horse Opera, with far too many bad buys elbowing their way on stage

    To which I say, in the nicest way

    Kill them all and let God sort them out—just keep Pope Francis out of it/

    I can see it now:

    A tearful Boehner comes on stage, hoist the white flag, and proclaims I came, I saw, I sold out.

  4. http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/255062-bill-clinton-trump-has-chance-at-nomination

    Bill Clinton: Trump could win nomination

    President Bill Clinton says Donald Trump could win the GOP nomination thanks to his ability to promote a unique personal brand.

    “He’s a master brander,” Clinton said during an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Saturday.

    “And when you’ve got a lot of people running, and people are trying, got to make distinctions, being able to put a personal stamp on it so people identify who you are, certainly counts for something, at least in the beginning.”

    When asked by Zakaria if he believed Trump could win, Clinton said “I think so.” But he was quick to qualify and note that he’s been out of politics for years.

    “I think so, how do I know?” Clinton said.

    “I’m not the best pundit anymore, I don’t have a good feel for this, all I know is what I’ve heard from the country.”

    He added that Trump has reached out to the working class to give them economic reasons to vote for him, including restricting immigration and limiting Chinese imports.

    “That all has to be fleshed out over the course of time and I’m sure the other future debates will do it,” Clinton said.

    “But he’s got a lot of pizzazz and zip, he’s branded himself in a clear way and he’s generated some excitement. And it remains to be seen what’s going to happen.”

    Clinton said he believes there is more enthusiasm on the Democratic side, where his wife Hillary Clinton is running.

    “Both Hillary and Sen. [Bernie] Sanders [I-Vt.] have laid out detailed policy positions, talked about what they would cost,” he said.

    “You can actually have a debate there where you can discuss the relative merits of their positions on healthcare, generating jobs, lifting incomes or whatever. But over there, it seems to be more about resentments and one-liners.”

  5. Then there is Jeb. Jeb Bush. JeBush. There’s a certain fin de siècle quality to JeBush. JeBush is like a once grand house that has been repainted but the structural damage is evident no matter how many decorators are called in. The mold is everywhere. The termites, like rust, munching day and night without rest. The musty air, trapped in windows that long ago refused to be opened.

    JeBush himself, refurbished with a thinning diet, armed with dusty sayings that worked to elect former members of the household to the peerage… JeBush himself has a sort of Fall of the House of Usher decrepitness. We’re tempted to say he’s on the Road to Nowhere, or Road to Ruin, but there is something more Bellatrix Lestrange to JeBush… something oddly Kate Bush….

    ——–
    Nice references here to fin de siècle, and the fall of the house of unctuous–compassionate conservative Jebbediah.

    Here’s the handwriting on the wall where he is concerned. A future falling out between him and his donors, based on the old refrain: he can’t win.

  6. Clinton said he believes there is more enthusiasm on the Democratic side, where his wife Hillary Clinton is running.
    ———-
    Not if you compare the turn out at campaign events.

    Perhaps he is referring to the Sanders event in Seattle

    Where the Black Lives Matters crew liberated the oppressed podium from the old white honkie oppressor.

  7. How much is that doggie in the window.

    Dunno.

    Lets ask that collector of Nazi memorabilia

    Who was kind enough to throw a lavish fundraiser for Marco

    According to an unimpeachable source, i.e. Little Debbie

    He’d know

    As for Little Debbie she makes a strong case

    For the insanity defense.

    In the meantime I say lets be nice to Fidel

    If we are real lucky he may take Marco back

    No questions asked

  8. I have never been big on religion and now even less so since the Pope has stuck his nose in our business pushing an agenda that is contrary to the country’s best interests. I think we should tell him we’ll keep the illegals, if he will pay for them. Start with a Trillion dollars for the last five years.

  9. Amen Admin ! IMO Music is one of the most powerful, universal means of self-expression. I LOVE you selections.

    Americans are re-declaring their independence – from party, from big media, from government, and for those who would impose their anti-American agendas upon a country which – in spite of it’s mistakes and missteps – has demonstrated time and time again generosity of spirit, concern for human rights, and willingness to fight and die to protect human lives and human rights world wide. No we are not perfect. But, for Americans and America constantly to be constantly vilified by the Dim Party, it’s failed leader, and a bunch of wimpy-ass, hyper-educated limousine libs is an intolerable injustice – one people won’t continue to put up with.

    In spite of my disappointment in Hillary 16 to this point, I find it so encouraging and validating to see and hear Americans rejecting the lies of MSM and government leaders and demonstrating and an independent spirit that borders on revolutionary !

    Off topic, but tonight’s ceremony for the Pope is kind of awkward.
    —-
    The Pope is our guest.

    He comes here at the behest of Boenher

    To grant him absolution, and

    To pontificate on socialism, open borders, and climate change to the rest of us, i.e. the payor in his grand schemes. Of course, if he were to embrace birth control we might not have those problems.

    For Popes, vaudeville hooks are not the thing.

    However, as a simple matter of courtesy, it behooves them to be mindful of our customs.

    Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days—Benjamin Franklin

  11. On the other hand, maybe we should extend his visa. His mere presence is flushing out the quail:

    A congressman stole the water glass Pope Francis was drinking out of during his address at the White House on Thursday.

    Representative Bob Brady, a devout Catholic and Democrat from Pennsylvania immediately made his way to the podium after Pope Francis finished speaking and grabbed the glass that was still filled with water.

    He then drank the water, gave some of the water to his wife Debra, and saved the rest for his grandchildren.

    Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) 68% took photos as well, and had his staff send them out to the press.

    This is just bizarre. It is more than bizarre. It is unhinged.

    What makes this spectacle more indicative of mental illness on the part of Bob Brady rather than some ostentatious display of religiosity is the fact that Brady really isn’t, as the article says, a “devout Catholic.”

  12. Talk about bragging rights.

    Over yonder, on my trophy table is the glass I stole from the Pope.

    Under normal circumstances this would constitute theft.

    But he is a congressman, and they have exempted themselves from most laws.

    So he is safe just as long as he does not hide it in his icebox and claim he did not know how it got there.

  14. Boehner will resign. This news has provoked cat calls, rotten tomatoes, and shouts go surrender somewhere else. In John’s case those accolades are well deserved. Comes next a power struggle for the Speakership, Majority Leader and Whip. I want Jim Jordan. After Erickson disinvited Trump, others on that blog have become Trump bashers, I lost interest in what they have to say. But there is one writer there with excellent insights who gives us the truth with the bark off. Here are his insights.

    Thoughts on Boehner’s resignation

    By: streiff (Diary) | September 26th

    So now what?

    The upside to Speaker Boehner’s surprise resignation was that the GOP was spared a lengthy and ugly mult-stage slow-motion coup in which Boehner would have to fend off a series of challenges while some high profile legislation moved through Congress. The downside is that has left the field wide open.

    Let’s review the bidding and then look down the road a bit.

    Boehner did not endorse Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) 63% as his successor.

    This is important as will become evident later on.

    If we know that McCarthy did not stomp on the incipient revolt and let Boehner be turfed out then it is a solid bet Boehner knows it. The fact that McCarthy got de minimus advance notice indicates that he has not been anointed heir (or hair, if you will) apparent.

    If McCarthy become speaker things MIGHT change.

    Focus on the word “might.” Here I will depart company with my friend Leon. McCarthy’s HAFA score put him squarely in the middle of the House caucus in terms of political views. McCarthy has shown that he will work with conservatives, unlike Boehner who treats them as his enemies. So I don’t see a Speaker McCarthy as a complete waste of an opportunity. He could be but he could also be a decent Speaker.

    If Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) 63% and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) 58% move up NOTHING can change.

    While it might not even be possible for conservatives to mount a challenge to McCarthy, the same cannot be said for either Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) 63% and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) 58%. Both of these can and should be defeated. As Ace says, these guys are Boehner’s less accomplished inferior employees. A House with a Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) 63%, Majority Leader Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) 63%, and Majority Whip Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) 58% will be an effervescing puddle of FAIL that will make Boehner’s tenure look like the Golden Age of Athens.

    We need an election not a coronation. That means vetting the candidates.

    When Speaker Newt Gingrich was overthrown back in 1998 he was quickly succeeded by Louisiana Representative Bob Livingston. You’re probably thinking to yourself, “Speaker Livingston? Did I really take that many drugs in the 90s?” Bob Livingston only lasted a matter of days before it was revealed that he had carried on an extra-marital affair and resigned as Speaker-elect. (Those, of course, were gentler days. Perhaps adultery no longer matters in an era where the NRSC actively supports an open and notorious adulterer for a Senate seat.) The House should make sure that every candidate, especially McCarthy, has a clean bill of health in their finances, in the management of their offices, in their personal relationships with donors, and in their personal lives. What we don’t need is a replay of the Livingston fiasco. If McCarthy or anyone else has something or someone in their closet, including themselves, they are morons to believe it will not come out at the worst possible time because too many people have a stake in this election.

    If we have an election we conservatives need a real candidate.

    I don’t know who, if anyone, might be looking at a run. But if the best we can do is put up Louis Gohmert we should just elect McCarthy by acclamation. This is a chance for the Freedom Caucus to actually do something. It has caught this freakin’ car and it had better have a plan on what to do next other than be dragged down the road behind it.

    I am with you my friend.

    I try to make light of all this.

    Its the only way to keep my sanity.

    There is that saying that power corrupts.

    There is another saying that power attracts corrupt people.

  16. Representative Bob Brady

    This idiot must have a lot he is ashamed of, drinking the holy water won’t save him from roasting for eternity.

  17. Upon further reflection, I realize I was wrong.

    Wrong to condemn that democrat from Pennsylvania for stealing the Pope’s water glass.

    He was simply following the scripture laid down by George Plunkett

    A late 19th century politician and member of Tammany Hall.

    George, you see, was a devotee of “honest graft”

    And when people objected to this noblesse oblige, he sneered:

    “I seen me opportunities. And I took ’em.”

    Fast forward to this week.

    Another time, another politician, but the same mindset.

    In this case, it just happened to be the Pope’s water glass.

    The next time, who knows.

    It could be something as small as a bread basket.

    Or something as large as the national treasury.

    With RINOs and DINOs the target is whatever they decide it is.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_W._Plunkitt

  18. Southern Born, that George Will article crossed the line to incoherent. The title of the article has nothing to do with what George wrote. There is no Trump collapse, just George Will dreaming of a Trump campaign collapse. Then George veers into ‘once Trump collapses then Cruz will rise and that will lead to disaster.’ It’s all very nutty. You can almost see the Georgie spitle on the pages as you read what he obviously wrote in anger.

    The comments to the article are very good and worth a read. Will’s readers mostly go with Trump and dump Georgie.

  19. But he has, in effect, shrunk the large inheritance he received from his father. In 1982, Forbes reported Trump’s net worth at $200 million. Vox calculates that if he had put that in an index fund “at a 0.15 percent fee, he’d have $6.3 billion today after dividend taxes, almost certainly more than he actually does.” And an AP analysis showed that if in 1988 he had put his money in an index fund he would have $13 billion. (He has not really revealed his net worth, but any Trump reticence is as welcome as it is rare.)

    Southern Born – when I read the above, I thought it must be an old article – but it’s not. I guess Will doesn’t bother to keep up, or perhaps he just likes to use outdated information to somehow bolster his opinion.

    As even we “common folk” know, Trump *has* shown his income and net worth, and all the elites were shocked because it was way more than they had thought. And Trump doesn’t put much in investments, because there is more risk there than how he does make his money, by working and *earning* it. And I believe his revealed net worth was way more than these estimates Will cites he would have made if he had invested it (I can’t remember the amount of Trump’s net worth off hand).

    Why is this guy so oblivious? lol

  20. Oops – guess I didn’t close my italics – they should end after the first paragraph… maybe admin can fix that when s/he fishes it out of moderation…? 🙂

  21. “Bellatrix Lestrange to JeBush… something oddly Kate Bush…”

    Tying together one of my favorite actresses who plays one of my favorite fictional characters, and throwing in one of my favorite artists/singers, who is singing one of my favorite songs with a low-energy bulb like Jebito? WTF? Way over my head.

    Awesome collection of songs here. I still loves me some Don Henley. If he was good enough for Stevie then he’s good enough for me.

  22. In spite of my disappointment in Hillary 16 to this point, I find it so encouraging and validating to see and hear Americans rejecting the lies of MSM and government leaders and demonstrating and an independent spirit that borders on revolutionary !
    ———————–
    Amen to that.

  23. Ahh, Henley hates Trump…Therefore I dislike Henley…actually, always thought he was ok.
    When Trump was on Gallons show, Henley sang an obnoxious song dissing Trump..typical liberal asswhipe.
    Stay classless my friend….

    Reminder, it’s time to tell us what you’ve heard about Bernie Sanders.

    Guesses:

    – Bernie is working closely with his comrades, Putin and Castro?

    – Bernie is only running for Presz to give Hillary someone to debate. The DNC wanted AlmostOneDrop to take that slot, but Wigwam had leather to chew for Barry’s WhiteHouse slippers.

    – Bernie is going to quit the race?

    – Bernie is in the middle of a manic episode and doesn’t realize he is running for Prez of the entire US?

    – Bernie is an idiot?

    TEASE! do spill!

  26. I too am interested in the latest on Bernie. Due to a spiritual – although not papal – intervention,n Shirley and daughter-in-law have developed sudden appetite for politics at the presidential level & the DIL is leaning Bernie’s way.
    ========================
    This email just in from J.D. Winteregg who had been in his second campaign against Boehner when Boner signaled he’d resign soon. A few of Jd’s thoughts:

    Even though John Boehner is retiring, he’s likely to recruit and fund his own replacement. When he does, I encourage you to “follow the money” because his hand-picked successor will immediately be accountable to the same special interests that padded the Speaker’s PAC and campaign coffers for so many years. I owe nothing to Karl Rove, Steve LaTourette, the US Chamber or anyone else. From day one, and from that point forward, I will be accountable only to my constituents.

    So, while you won’t be seeing any more #FireBoehner hash tags tweeted out by my social media team, I’m still likely to be squaring off against what some describe as “the Washington Cartel.” I’m happy that the Speaker chose to step down and I wish him all the best in his retirement, but I doubt that he’ll donate his millions to charity and walk away from the political process. He will still want to reward his allies and punish conservatives who dared to oppose him. I’m one of those conservatives ….

  27. Felix_the_Infidel, a bit about Jebby and Kate and Bellatrix. Helena Bonham Carter who plays Bellatrix explained that she interpreted Bellatrix as once fashionable and rising woman who never let go of her fashion choices as she aged and her character too reflected a glory long past. Here’s what Bonham Carter says about Bellatrix to understand how our song choice relates to JeBush:

    There’s a lot of decaying, too, with the bad teeth. She’s been in prison for so long. The mad hair. She’s someone who has seen better times but still carries herself with the memory of what she was. She’s almost like someone who’s had too many surgeries and thinks they’re beautiful but in fact has gone way wrong. There’s a lot of people like that now.

    Likewise with Kate Bush. The song Wuthering Heights is an interpretation of Emily Bronte’s (who died at age 30) magnificent sole book (Emily’s sister Charlotte was also one of the English world’s greatest writers which adds a family twist here as well). Again this is a return to a past and a great house that has gone to seed. Kate Bush’s interpretation of a dead Cathy on the moors pining for Heathcliff is part and parcel of the vibe we get from JeBush. It’s that entire Fall of the House of Usher theme.

    JeBush is like the last son of a familial house, one that once had great wealth and power. But it has all gone to seed. This is a grand theme as old as the Greeks and it ties in with Heathcliff and his torments, poor Cathy, Bellatrix and the fall of the House of Black.

  28. Speaking of the power of music/sound, this via ACEofSpades:

    http://wackulus.com/creepy-recordings-used-terrify-vietnam-soliders/

    Imagine you’re creeping slowly through a battle-ridden jungle at night, holding your rifle high above the soggy ground. It’s nearly midnight, and the jungle canopy blocks out any hope for moonlight from above. Enemies surround you, yet the only sounds you hear are those of nature, unnatural as they seem in the black of night. Suddenly, a ghostly voice floats through the trees. It calls out to you, warning you against death, begging you to go to your family.

    This is exactly what many North Vietnam soldiers faced during the Vietnam War. The U.S. had developed a propaganda campaign to exploit fears of the Vietnamese soliders. It played off the belief of many Vietnamese in the “wandering soul”:

    “It is the Vietnamese belief that the dead must be buried in their homeland, or their soul will wander aimlessly in pain and suffering. Vietnamese feel that if a person is improperly buried, then their soul wanders constantly. They can sometimes be contacted on the anniversary of their death and near where they died. Vietnamese honor these dead souls on a holiday when they return to the site where they died.”

  29. More music. He doesn’t say anything about Kate Bush, but in the 1980s the great Chuck Berry spoke of the music of the era:

    http://dangerousminds.net/comments/chuck_berry_reviews_sex_pistols_talking_heads_clash_and_many_more_1980

    Chuck Berry reviews Sex Pistols, Talking Heads, Clash and many more, 1980

    The Sex Pistols’ “God Save the Queen”:

    What’s this guy so angry about anyway? Guitar work and progression is like mine. Good backbeat. Can’t understand most of the vocals. If you’re going to be mad at least let the people know what you’re mad about. [snip]

    Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer”:

    A funky little number, that’s for sure. I like the bass a lot. Good mixture and a real good flow. The singer sounds like he has a bad case of stage fright.

    There are others.

    Psycho Killer (which could be a Rand Paul song):

  30. A little Trump via the Hill, which is pretty much what we have been writing:

    http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/255032-media-thumps-trump-but-polls-show-hes-winning-big

    Media thumps Trump, but polls show he’s winning big

    Rumors of Donald Trump’s demise may have been greatly exaggerated.

    Ever since rival Carly Fiorina was widely perceived to have bested Trump at the second GOP debate in California on Sept. 16, media outlets have been lining up to suggest that the front-runner is waning.

    Trump has hit back with characteristic vigor. But he has a point, independent observers say.

    “The reality is that he does have a hold on some people and he doesn’t appear to be surrendering it,” said Mark Mellman, a veteran Democratic pollster who is also a columnist for The Hill.

    Much of the negative media attention has been built around a single poll in the immediate aftermath of the debate, by CNN/ORC.

    The survey showed the businessman’s support among Republican voters nationwide had declined by 8 percentage points since the last survey from the same source, less than two weeks before.

    That was a sizable decline, to be sure — even though Trump still led his closest rival by 9 percentage points. But no other reputable poll since the debate has shown Trump falling by anything like that margin.

    A survey from Fox News released earlier this week showed the businessman at 26 percent support nationally, an increase of 1 point since Fox’s last survey in mid-August. A Bloomberg poll gave him 21 percent — good enough for a 5-point lead over the field and an unchanged rating since the last poll from the financial news outlet at the beginning of August.

    The picture is not substantially different in the crucial early states — and, in some cases, it is even better for Trump.

    The Democratic-leaning firm Public Policy Polling (PPP) released a new survey from Iowa this week in which Trump polled at 24 percent — a 5-point rise over his showing in PPP’s previous poll of the Hawkeye State in the immediate aftermath of the first GOP debate on Aug. 6.

    Trump’s support could collapse eventually — as is the case with any other candidate — but there is precious little evidence that his supporters are deserting him.

    “The national polling that has come out this week has been mixed,” said PPP director Tom Jensen. “But it’s not something where I would buy into a narrative of Trump declining, unless that was the narrative I wanted. I think, in some quarters, the media people are getting bored [with Trump’s strength] and are ready to write a different story.”

    The candidate shares that view quite emphatically. In TV interviews and on his Twitter account throughout this week, he has inveighed against media coverage that he believes is unfair in general and, in particular, is highlighting the most negative polls for him and ignoring the rest.

    Four days earlier, he had a tense exchange with Savannah Guthrie, one of the anchors of NBC’s “Today” show. Trump complained that Guthrie was highlighting the CNN poll that showed the big decline rather than NBC’s own online survey in which he had risen 7 points from the previous month.

    You put up the CNN poll, you didn’t put up NBC poll and you’re the ones that are paying for the NBC poll,” he told Guthrie. “So I don’t get it, other than that the NBC poll is a very good poll for Trump.”

    Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, underlined the point in a phone interview with The Hill.

    Complaining about “dishonesty in the mainstream media,” Lewandowski noted that, while the results of any individual poll are open to debate, “there has been a clear consistency that indicates Mr. Trump is the definitive front-runner for the Republican nomination.”

    As of late Friday, the RealClearPolitics (RCP) average had Trump leading the GOP field by 7.7 points nationally; by exactly 6 points in Iowa; by 15.6 points in New Hampshire, and by 15.3 points in South Carolina.

    If his name wasn’t Trump, the pundits would be saying this race is over,” Lewandowski said. “If the name was Bush — and Jeb is in about sixth place, by the way — and he was getting 28 and 32 percent, it would be all over.”

  31. Our Saint Bernard story.

    We’ve checked it out from multiple sources and so we feel OK about writing about this. Some might think it is not much but the Hillary2016 people could and should exploit it.

    What’s our Bernie Sanders story? His own staff hates him. He is a very nasty person one on one and treats his staff like dirt. Liberal Bernie thinks he is a king and the staff are his serfs and he lets them know the status difference every chance he gets.

    When the Antony Weiner story broke on Memorial Day weekend in 2011 we immediately said the Twitter pictures were of Weiner. We were immediately attacked by many but especially that Cannon guy who denounced us and called us “rat fu*kers” for saying the pictures were of Weiner (in more ways than one). Soon many joined in attacks against us for not sticking with the guy with the D after his name. The attacks against us only ceased when Weiner confessed and we were proven right.

    We had two reasons for saying the pictures were of Weiner. First we knew Weiner (not in the Biblical sense) and instantly recognized the story to be true (in some part because Weiner is a prick and loves his plaything). The main reason we knew it was Weiner and said so however was because we knew that Anthony Weiner’s staff hated Weiner. Weiner treated his staff with the same contempt and royal pretensions as we hear Bernie Sanders abuses his workers.

    When the Weiner story broke we at first suspected that the photos were revenge plotted by his staff against Weiner. Perhaps the weiner photos came from “medical” selfies taken by Weiner and then the staff used those photos to smear the Congressman was the plot we concocted at the first. Quickly after when we learned that Weiner had been drinking and Tweeting on that night and in between Tweets the photo was sent did we declare that Weiner had sent out the pictures himself and that the staff was innocent.

    The point is that we suspected it was staff sabotage because we knew the Weiner staff hated Weiner.

    We also posted recently that pious Rick Santorum is also a nasty person behind the scenes. That came from a Republican who wrote he had witnessed Rick Santorum in private and that that convinced him to not support Santorum.

    So Saint Bernard better watch out. Hillary2016 should try to contact some of the Bernie staffers and have some drinks with them. Loose lips sink ships and nothing loosens the lips as quickly as a bottle of whisky and a pretty drinking companion out to get secrets. Need we say more Hillary2016?

    Admin,

    This is THE ONLY thing that I imagined that the obot transplants could have brought to the Hillary 2016 team – dirty politics. This kind of tactic that you are describing SCREAMS of Chicago politics (see The Almanac of Political Corruption, Scandals & Dirty Politics). The Hillary campaign would do well to heed this advice and get a little bit muddy this election cycle…

    Hillary 2016?

  33. Well . . . not all Members of Congress are mean to their staffs. Some err on the side of being too friendly. Or . . . I seen me opportunities . . . and I took em. Whether that should be the fight song of the US Senate, or the esteemed members of the Rykers Island club, the reader will decide. The defense will be “I didn’t do it, but even if I did do it she led me along, but even if I did it and she did not lead me along, demon rum made me do it) Doesn’t it make you proud to know your future is in their hands. So when someone says we can’t take a chance with Trump, they need to understand the dismal record of those in the status quo, who are tanking the nation.

    1. Brock Adams (D-Wa): On November 4, 1986, Adams was elected as a U.S. senator, narrowly defeating incumbent Republican Slade Gorton (677,471 to 650,931 votes, 50.66% to 48.67%).[3] Serving one term, he compiled a liberal record and was strongly supportive of his party’s leadership. In 1992 he chose not to be a candidate for reelection after eight women made statements to The Seattle Times alleging that Adams had committed various acts of sexual misconduct, ranging from sexual harassment to rape.[4] Adams was accused by Kari Tupper, the daughter of a longtime friend, of drugging and assaulting her.[5] Adams denied the allegations, but his popularity statewide was weakened considerably by the scandal and he chose to retire rather than risk losing the seat for his par

    2. Bob Packwood (R-Or): political career began to unravel in November 1992, when a Washington Post story detailed the claims of sexual abuse and assault by ten women, chiefly former staffers and lobbyists.[31] Publication of the story was delayed until after the 1992 election, as Packwood had denied the allegations and the Post had not gathered enough of the story at the time.[32][33] Packwood defeated Democrat Les AuCoin 52.1% to 46.5%.

    As the situation developed, Packwood’s diary became an issue. Wrangling over whether the diary could be subpoenaed and whether it was protected by the Fifth Amendment’s protection against self-incrimination ensued. He did turn over 5000 pages to the Senate Ethics Committee but balked when a further 3200 pages were demanded by the committee. It was discovered that he had edited the diary, removing what were allegedly references to sexual encounters and the sexual abuse allegations made against him. Packwood then made what some of his colleagues interpreted as a threat to expose wrongdoing by other members of Congress. The diary allegedly detailed some of his abusive behavior toward women and, according to a press statement made by Richard Bryan, at that time serving as senator from Nevada, “raised questions about possible violations of one or more laws, including criminal laws.”[34] Expulsion recommendation and resignation[edit] When the sexual harassment allegations came to light, Packwood fled to the Hazelden Foundation clinic for alcoholism in Minnesota, claiming that his drinking led to the harassments.[35]

    3. Edward (“Teddy”) Kennedy: On the night of July 18, 1969, Kennedy was on Martha’s Vineyard’s Chappaquiddick Island at a party he gave for the “Boiler Room Girls”, a group of young women who had worked on his brother Robert’s presidential campaign the year before.[67] Kennedy left the party, driving a 1967 Oldsmobile Delmont 88 with one of the women, 28-year-old Mary Jo Kopechne, and later drove off Dike Bridge into the Poucha Pond inlet, a tidal channel on Chappaquiddick Island. Kennedy escaped the overturned vehicle, and, by his description, dove below the surface seven or eight times, vainly attempting to reach Kopechne. Ultimately, he swam to shore and left the scene. He contacted authorities the next morning, but Kopechne’s body had already been discovered.[67]

    On July 25, Kennedy pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident and was given a sentence of two months in jail, suspended.[67] That night, he gave a national broadcast in which he said, “I regard as indefensible the fact that I did not report the accident to the police immediately,” but denied driving under the influence of alcohol and denied any immoral conduct between him and Kopechne.[67] Kennedy asked the Massachusetts electorate whether he should stay in office or resign; after getting a favorable response in messages sent to him, Kennedy announced on July 30 that he would remain in the Senate and run for re-election the next year.[72]

    In January 1970, an inquest into Kopechne’s death was held in Edgartown, Massachusetts.[67] At the request of Kennedy’s lawyers, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ordered the inquest be conducted in secret.[67][73][74] The presiding judge, James A. Boyle, concluded that some aspects of Kennedy’s story of that night were not true, and that negligent driving “appears to have contributed to the death of Mary Jo Kopechne”.[74] A grand jury on Martha’s Vineyard conducted a two-day investigation in April 1970 but issued no indictment, after which Boyle made his inquest report public.[67] Kennedy deemed its conclusions “not justified”.[67] Questions about the Chappaquiddick incident generated a large number of articles and books over the next several years.[75]

  34. Two quotes by one of our local journalists from the Tacoma News Tribune two generations ago:

    1. “Governments, if they endure, always tend increasingly toward aristocratic forms. No government in history has been known to evade this pattern. And as the aristocracy develops, government tends more and more to act exclusively in the interests of the ruling class — whether that class be hereditary royalty, oligarchs of financial empires, or entrenched bureaucracy.”

  35. Trumptastic news as we wait for Donald Trump to go on 60 Minutes.

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/sep/27/mitch-mcconnell-pushed-resign-senate-majority-lead/

    Top GOP official seeks McConnell ouster as Senate leader

    With John Boehner now departing as House speaker, an influential Republican Party official is now seeking the ouster of another GOP leader who has frustrated conservatives: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

    “McConnell needs to resign!!” Louisiana GOP Chairman Roger Villere wrote in a Facebook posting.

    Mr. Villere isn’t just any Republican. He’s the longest-serving state GOP chairman in the nation, with 12 years on the job, and is the vice chairman of the Republican National Committee, the GOP’s national governing body. He also serves on the RNC’s executive committee that makes decisions alongside Chairman Reince Priebus.

    “Mitch is a good and honorable guy, but the base is leaving our party,” Mr. Villere said in an interview with The Washington Times. “I’m out in the field all the time and we have all our elections this year for state offices, and it’s hurting us tremendously with our elections.”

  36. Putin is proving Charlie Rose to be a hack on 60 Minutes. It’s hard not to see how Putin appeals to his people. He is very straightforward when he speaks. In that way, he is very similar to Trump. He seems so very diplomatically polished as well. His answers while direct and unabashed, they are nuanced at the same time. In that way, he is very much like Hillary. And UN-like bumbles the woebegone, he puts Russia first in all things.

    Hillary 2016?

  37. Whoever dressed Putin deserves praise. His suit was sharp. Shirt color brought out his blue eyes. The tie was perfect with interesting colors all matching the overall scheme.

  38. Whoever dressed Putin deserves praise. His suit was sharp. Shirt color brought out his blue eyes. The tie was perfect with interesting colors all matching the overall scheme.
    ——–
    As befits the new leader of the free world.

    Meaning the world which does not fall under the shadow of Messiah Obama’s incompetence and malfeasance.

  39. Richard Fernandez–

    It was as if John Boehner had a confession to make after all these years of troubled conscience. His recent resignation had the effect of suggesting the pro wrestling in Congress is fake. The Washington Republicans, dear fans are supposed to lose – after making some effort to heighten the drama — to the Capital Democrats. All those heart stopping moments toward the end lost due to some error or a sudden reversal of fortune — well that was in the script.

    Republican Eric Cantor, writing in the New York Times, argues that there was no dishonor to being on the losing team so long as the game drew the crowds in. It kept the masses entertained, filled the stadium, paid the bills and prevented the Capital Democrats from winning too easily. There was an art to arranging things so that the Capital Democrats could imperceptibly gain a hundred points and let the Washingtons win back ten of them without becoming too obvious.

    Now all stability is at risk from people, hicks who not knowing the noble history of the game, actually want to wrassle for real.

    Wrassle! Why … There were unwritten rules that kept everything civil. One of them was that Masked Barry was allowed to pound his opponents with a stool but Kid Boehner must limit himself to a few mild body-slams. Without these rules limiting actual violence there was the danger than a real fight might erupt in the ring – and someone might get hurt. Cantor urged the Republicans to remember the bigger picture and stay within bounds.

    What’s really at stake is not just the fate of the Washington Republicans but the wrestling federation itself. Since loyalty to the sport should be greater than loyalty to the team, the end of illusion is to be regretted. In fact Republican Lindsay Graham is so worried that Boehner’s public breakdown may have discredited the Game such that it may prove difficult to attract the fans to the next season matches.

    David Weigel at the Washington Post argues that a series of events led the fans to suspect the league was rigged, events which led to the Speaker’s resignation. Although fans came to the stadium for Republicans in record numbers they soon began to think something was sorely amiss which led the rowdier elements in the bleachers to start pelting the ring with rotten vegetables.

    Weigel’s analysis is perceptive but too narrow. It neglects to account for the fact that real developments outside the closed, hermetic world of Washington DC are shattering the suspension of disbelief upon which all good shows depend. Real consequences are impinging upon the artificial world of the ring canvas.

    The fans, once enraptured by the wrestling, have noticed large fires starting outside the stadium. They hear shouting a few blocks over in Chinese. In the far distance there’s appears to be a rumble of Russian. And right next door, where the smoke (is it smoke?) seems to be coming from thickest, are loud yells in Arabic, French and German.

    They notice that the price of tickets gets higher and higher; and the food service quality lower and lower. The space under the seats looks like they haven’t been swept in weeks. And there are disturbing movements of cash boxes from the ticket gate they’ve never noticed before. They sense, even if they can’t articulate it, that something is different.

    Yet to their astonishment no one in the wrestling ring, not even the announcer, appears to take the slightest notice of events and carry on making the same choreographed moves, the same scripted sounds. At that point, they crowd may start to boo.

    That could prove enough to break the spell. As any dramatist knows, there is nothing more fatal for a play than the audience to so lose interest in the plot that they begin to notice the shabbiness of the props, the obvious make-up of the players and the cardboard nature of their swords. For at that moment onward, the production is doomed. The greatest danger to a show is that the crowd begins to to see the play-outside-the-play.

    Boehner’s depature is yet one more sign that the narrative is breaking down. Both in Europe and in America, the same old nostrums are having increasingly less effect. The problem is growing without an answer in sight. The players are still going through the motions, but they are only making things up as they go along.

  40. We caught the tread of dancing feet,
    We loitered down the moonlit street,
    And stopped beneath the harlot’s house.

    Inside, above the din and fray,
    We heard the loud musicians play
    The ‘Treues Liebes Herz’ of Strauss.

    Like strange mechanical grotesques,
    Making fantastic arabesques,
    The shadows raced across the blind.

    We watched the ghostly dancers spin
    To sound of horn and violin,
    Like black leaves wheeling in the wind.

    Like wire-pulled automatons,
    Slim silhouetted skeletons
    Went sidling through the slow quadrille,

    Then took each other by the hand,
    And danced a stately saraband;
    Their laughter echoed thin and shrill.

    Sometimes a clockwork puppet pressed
    A phantom lover to her breast,
    Sometimes they seemed to try to sing.

    Sometimes a horrible marionette
    Came out, and smoked its cigarette
    Upon the steps like a live thing.

    Then, turning to my love, I said,
    ‘The dead are dancing with the dead,
    The dust is whirling with the dust.’

    But she–she heard the violin,
    And left my side, and entered in:
    Love passed into the house of lust.

    Then suddenly the tune went false,
    The dancers wearied of the waltz,
    The shadows ceased to wheel and whirl.

    And down the long and silent street,
    The dawn, with silver-sandalled feet,
    Crept like a frightened girl.

  41. “Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” Bush played down the importance of his standing in polls. “These polls really don’t matter. . . . They don’t filter out the people that aren’t going to vote, it’s just — I know it’s an obsession because it kind of frames the debate for people for that week,” he said.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/its-make-or-break-time-for-jeb-bush/2015/09/27/73d5f6fa-63c0-11e5-b38e-06883aacba64_story.html

    !Jeb is about to start loosing his donors. No one wants to throw money down a rat hole and Jeb is a rat hole. They are giving him a month to “catch on” as a courtesy to his father and brother. He and Karl Rove have by far the worst cost/benefit ratio of any Republican out there. He is the worst candidate in terms of polling/popularity/expenses of staff and hack advisers to money/donors/PACS. All that money and bullying, all of Rove’s and Murdoch’s scheming, rule changes in primaries and calendars, all of that arm twisting and money grubbing for naught. !Jeb is very expensive and not producing anything. And they got to think about the long term in things like pissing off Trump. The inevitable !Jeb is no more and the clown Trump maybe should not be disrespected. The current Rubio “the baby” talk? Just to save face.

  42. Thank you Admin! I swear, what I lack in brains I make up for in enthusiasm and creativity. XXOO

    BTW, is it just me or did anyone else want to reach through the TV and smack Scott Pelly? I can’t believe I used to like him.

  43. THROUGH THE FOX NEWS LOOKING GLASS, DARKLY

    I had a dream last night.

    Dreamed I was Roger Ailes.

    The founder and CEO of FOX News.

    You think you have got problems?

    Whatever they are, they pale in comparison to mine.

    Cause nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen, etc.

    I built this network from nothing to what it is today.

    In the vast miasma I saw a long neglected market niche.

    The very people big media and Obama despise

    Conservatives who believe in guns, religion, and honesty.

    The kind of people Obama sends overseas to get their limbs blown off.

    And then refuses to take care of them when they come home.

    These people come to us at FOX for one simple reason.

    They trust us to respect their values and to tell them the truth.

    The problem is two of my leading pundits are undermining that trust.

    And their direct bosses are oblivious to this.

    Simply put, my pundits are trashing the leading candidate of our party.

    In so doing, they are putting me as founder and CEO in an altogether impossible position.

    First of all, they are alienating our core audience.

    When they let us into their living room they do not expect to hear

    Megan’s guest talk about Carly cutting off Trump’s penis

    Or to see Megan, shanty Irish pretending to be lace curtain Irish

    Sharpening her talons and eyeing Trump with blood in her eyes

    And running to my boss whom she calls Rupie and trying to undercut me.

    Who has backed her up to this point–and warned Trump not to run

    Rupert is a globalist, but we cannot afford to present that to our audience.

    He can and does do that through his ownership of WSJ–but not here.

    And then there’s good old Billow whose ego could fill Yankee Stadium

    I wonder whether an ironic deity is punishing me for inventing these characters.

    But that is that is not the worst of it.

    The worst of it is we have positioned ourselves on the wrong side of the issue.

    We are a Republican network, but we are attacking our leading candidate 24/7?

    And he has responded in kind–with a boycott of FOX News?

    How will we cover the campaign?

    What will we do for the next eight years if he goes on to win?

    And how do we like having our dirty laundry aired by our competitors?

    Do Meeeee-again, or Bill-O think about these things?

    Or are they too wrapped up in their egos to see the forest for the trees?

    And what about their bosses, why haven’t they reigned this in?

    I am about to sit down with Mr. Trump and try to work this out.

    Frankly, I am not looking forward to it.

    He has all the leverage, and he is just the guy to use it.

    I am going to have the bosses of Megan an Bill there with me.

    I want them to hear what Donald has to say

    And explain themselves to Trump and to me

    And then I will have these bosses promise Trump that they will tone it down.

    Then I will go back with them and sit down with our two prima donas

    I am not going to tell them to cease and desist

    Because I don’t want to hear that they will not sacrifice their integrity, etc.

    I can see that speech coming from Megan especially

    Plus the end run around me to my boss–but that has been covered

    I will tell them what Trump said, and refuse to listen to their defense

    This is one of those situations where the customer is by definition, right.

    I am going to tell them straight out that they have put the brand at risk

    And they had been goddamned well fix it, starting tonight

    And I will tell their bosses to start looking for replacements if this is not heeded

    And I will tell their bosses that they too will be gone if this ever happens again.

    Yup, that is what I would do.

    But then I woke up and realized I had just been dreaming.

  44. Trump live on CNN,MSNBC, and Fox Business channels talking about his tax plan

    Fox News Channel…coverd O, Chinese and UN instead

  45. I guess I have a severe case of political burnout. I can’t bring myself to listen to videos of ANY candidate for the past week. Not interested, heard it all before, nothing new, just mumbles…

    I hope I get excited about politics before the election.

  46. while analyzing DT’s tax plan

    DT has alot of the pundits head’s spinning…he continues to thrown them all off guard…

    …as The Donald says ‘he like’s to be unpredicable’…

  47. When Chuck Todd is praising (stumbling, but praising) DJT’s Tax Plan – AND TRIES TO SPIN IT AS WHAT Obama “would have wanted” you know we are in End Times! LOL!

  48. Shadowfax

    September 28, 2015 at 11:39 am

    I guess I have a severe case of political burnout
    ******************************************

    Shadow…maybe this will help….it is being reported that Bill is getting ready to step into Hill’s campaign, starting with fundraisers…

    imho…Bill can only strengthen Hillary’s campaign and should have been more involved sooner ( i would have liked Clinton 3 from a female POV from the beginning)

    http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/254724-dems-want-bigger-role-for-bill-clinton

  49. Norma…this is what I love about DT…he takes the best from each party and then says what he wants…whether it is a “traditional” talking point or not…

    this is how he will “grow” voters like moderate Dems and Independents

    a lot of people will vote for “A Common Sense President”… imagine that!

    CBS has pulled it for possible copyright infringement. NOT GOING TO HELP THEIR CAUSE, is it?
    ==========================
    Regarding shitty way Scott treated DJT, it kind of seems like enough of us are on Twitter griping about Scott … that Donald does not need to do it any more.

    I missed his 11 AM presser, so not comment on that, but did you hear this which made Carly think of him?

    GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina campaigned in the Alamo City on Sunday and for a minute it looked like she was bringing down the house.
    http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local/article/Curtain-falls-on-presidential-candidate-Carly-6533696.php

  51. The sea is getting choppier yet for POTUS. Good way to start this week.
    Fox News’ Andrea Tantaros slams Obama with dose of harsh reality about discrimination http://www.bizpacreview.com/2015/09/28/fox-news-andrea-tantaros-slams-obama-with-dose-of-harsh-reality-about-discrimination-257262

    He said ‘that when it comes to discrimination, he did “not have patience” for countries that say “we have our own way of doing things.” ‘

    The hypocrisy on display was too much for Tantaros to bear, in light of the news that the U.S. military was told to look the other way as Afghan men raped small boys. And with Obama’s embrace of factions of Islam who continue to employ 7th century standards in a 21st century world.

    She slammed Obama on social media with a precise reminder of that harsh reality:
    snip
    And there were others similarly enraged, shown at that link.

    HOW REALLY STUPID HE IS to bring up reference of abusing small boys on SAME DAY as Pope apologized in private to Catholic clergy for same, promised no more, promised punishments at all levels.

  52. The rap against Trump by globalists like Murdock goes beyond a simple decision to enter the race. The gravamen of their complaint is that in a time where we are supposed to be moving away from the nation state model to a model of global government controlled by the elites, Trump is defying the new orthodoxy and is invoking themes of nationalism, and exposing the transitional costs of this transformation to the middle class, which show up in the form of wage stagnation, collapse of welfare systems, rising crime rates, 93 million people of working age not working and racial division. These do not affect the political class, and they dismiss the objections of the people they do affect as racist, nativist etc. If you have any doubts that this is the blueprint, you need to review the article by Christian Adams, commenting on how Harvard Law School has revised their curriculum to substitute portions of the traditional curriculum with blocks of course to impart a new set of skills which have little to do with representing clients, and everything to do with being a world bureaucrat. These people aim to be the new Masters of the Universe/

    Thanks S, sad that the ‘donors’ have to tell the Clinton’s to make a damn BIG change!

    Seeing Bill on the sidelines is as bad as Hillary’s personality and strength being muzzled.

    It’s like they are not interested in the election at all. If Hillary doesn’t fight like a girl for this…I won’t vote for her.

    Silent, ‘battered’ Hillary is not strong enough to be our President.

    Dump the Kooks Hillary, they are destroying your campaign!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The founder and CEO of FOX News.

    You think you have got problems?

    Why? Because when they invite us into their living room they do not expect to hear–

    Megan or her guest musing about Carly cutting off Trump’s penis

    Or to see Megan, all shanty Irish pretending to be lace curtain Irish

    While sharpening her talons and eyeing Trump with blood in her eyes

    While we are on that subject, you must understand where Rupert is coming from.

    He is a confirmed globalist. I will say it again: a confirmed globalist. Got it?

    While Trump is out there promoting the diametric opposite: nationalism

    Moreover, Trump is exposing the costs of this boil the frog transition

    In terms of wage stagnation, massive unemployment, crime, terrorism, etc.

    And he is tearing down the scaffolding for this transmogrification

    Rupert warned Trump not to run, but Trump defied that warning

    Therefore, Rupert cut loose Hell Cat Megan to take down Trump

    I have told Rupert that he is free to promote his globalist agenda through WSJ

    But if he does the same thing here he will destroy the FOX brand.

    For sure, not for maybe.

    And then there’s good old Billow whose ego could fill Yankee Stadium.

    His insult to Trump was the unkindest cut of all. Cancelling his appearance.

    Who does he think he is? Sky Pilot Eric Erickson??

    (Sometimes, I wonder whether an ironic deity is punishing me for inventing these characters.)

    But that is that is not the worst of it. Not by a long shot.

    The worst of it is we have positioned ourselves with great precision on the wrong side of the line!

    We are a Republican network, yet we are attacking the leading candidate 24/7!

    And he has responded in kind–with a boycott of FOX News. (Yikes!)

    This unhappy state of affairs begs certain existential questions, like:

    How will we secure access to the leading candidate during the campaign?

    What will we do for the next eight years if he goes on to win??

    And how do we like having our dirty laundry aired by our competitors???

    Rupert said don’t worry, we slipped Gingrich a mickey, and got away with it.

    I told him there is a new zeitgeist and Donald is a more formidable adversary.

    Do Meeeee-again, or Bill-O comprehend these things? Any of them??

    Or are they too wrapped up in their egos to see the forest for the trees?

    And what about their bosses, why haven’t they reigned this in?

    If they cannot see a risk to the business which is this obvious, what do I need them for?

    Which brings me to this not so pretty pass.

    I am about to sit down with Mr. Trump.

    He has all the leverage—and Donald is just the guy to use it.

    So I am not looking forward to it.

    I am going to have the bosses of Megan an Bill there with me.

    I want them to experience for themselves what Donald has to say–the words and the emotions

    And then I want them to explain themselves to Trump and to me.

    Then I will make them take a blood oath then and there to tone it down.

    Thereafter, I will go back to the shop with them and sit down with our 2 prima donnas

    I am not going to tell Megan and Bill to cease and desist.

    If I make that mistake, they will whine about their integrity and dig in.

    I can easily imagine that speech coming from Megan suddenly all prim and proper

    Plus another end run around me to my boss–but that has been covered

    Therefore, I will take a different approach–one they do not expect.

    I will tell them what Trump said in the most graphic terms.

    I will tell them point blank that they have placed our brand at risk.

    I will brush aside their objections.

    I will tell them where the brand is at risk, the customer is always right.

    When Megan asks me if Rupie feels the same way, I will tell her yes–definitely.

    And then I will put the monkey on their back.

    I will tell them they had better goddamned well fix the problem, starting tonight.

    And I will tell their bosses to start looking for replacements if this is not heeded.

    And I will tell their bosses that they too will be gone if this ever happens again.

    Yup, that is what I would do. . . . . . . . . . . .

    But then I woke up and realized I had just been dreaming.

    ———–
    ” As in any news organization, there were editorial and story challenges. But over time, I was able to successfully navigate the challenges, for seventeen years.

    There was a sudden and insurmountable change however when the Scott Pelley era began. Many of us inside CBS would speak to the irony that a broadcast network eager to develop a reputation for investigative reporting was in fact moving further from both.

    Pelley and his executive producer Shevlin showered compliments on my work. I got the seal of approval from the lawyers. It was set to air, but then it never did. Pelley just wanted to put his own style on my work and spin it his way. Prior anchors like Dan Rather, Bob Scheiffer and Katie Couric had big picture ideas, but they never attempted to rewrite my script, but Pelley did.

    He subjected my script to endless changes and revisions. He softened the facts and made the story convoluted and hard to follow. The revision process never ended. Was he scared of going after powerful enemies? He did not say. All I know is the report which had been so effusively complimented by him never aired. They rarely said the story would not air. They just let it sit around and loved it until it began to stink like old fish.

    A number of us sharing the same observations and experiences engaged in countless conversations speculating as to why the Pelley-Shevelin regime was so hostile to original and investigative reporting.

    The universe of what they desired narrowed to a paper thin slice that was inversely proportional to the expanding universe of what was censored or deemed undesirable—including an overtly visceral reaction to any stories which they perceived as negative toward the Obama administration.

    The Pelley Administration was the death knell of original investigative journalism at CBS.

    A personal assessment of Donald Trump

    As an attorney who’s worked for Trump (I have not represented him for the past year and a half) — and many years ago, against him — his success on the campaign trail comes as no surprise: Trump’s a man of exceptional tenacity and guts, insightful intuitions, clear purposes, an intelligence that’s expressed forcefully and directly, always without regard to political correctness, and a world class negotiator. Trump intuitively understands what troubles Americans and boldly states their concerns; I guarantee he’ll never be an appeaser of foreign governments; there’ll be no Neville Chamberlains or hapless apprentices for domestic or foreign policy, in his administration — if you’re not doing your job, you’ll be fired.

    Coming off President Obama’s massive failures, most recently his hugely dangerous appeasement of Iran (and funding of the terrorist regime), Americans hunger for Trump’s common sense approach, especially when coupled with his incorruptibility: Trump doesn’t need donors (let alone a foundation to function as money generating, influence-peddling machine), and when he says politicians are forever hitting him up for money, I can tell you he’s not exaggerating.

    All this has allowed Trump to tap into a geyser of American distrust and disgust over liberal policies, including out-of-control spending, immigration amnesty, and national defense (or better said the lack thereof), and over establishment Republicans who, despite being in control of the House of Representatives, have done nothing to stop America’s fall. The voters see the wreckage Europe has suffered from decades of socialist policies and porous borders and they don’t want that to happen to America.

    With an anchor baby born every 93 seconds, the Heartland isn’t content to allow America to suffer the fate of Europe by granting millions of illegals amnesty; Americans signed onto a melting pot, not pot luck — and believe we’re supposed to live alongside the immigrants we let in, not those who break in.

    Pundits on both sides of the aisle are panicking over Trump.

  59. CNN’s Dana Bash: Major Garrett Crossed Line with ‘Disrespectful’ Obama Question
    by Josh Feldman | 3:31 pm, July 15th, 2015 VIDEO
    1501

    Dana Dana Dana . .

    She criticizes fellow reporter for asking Obama why he did not bring the prisoners home as part of the Iran deal, contrasting the fanfare surrounding this deal in Washington with the hard reality of leaving American civilians behind. She goes on to say there is a fine line between asking a tough question and showing disrespect for Obama, which she said posing this question did.

    If the question is relevant as this one surely was, and if it has a basis in fact as this one did, then a journalist has an obligation to ask it and there is no fine line to navigate. The problem with Dana and her ilk is they are the palace guard, and they shy away from relevant inquiries, and focus on fluff to protect Obama. And the country has grown sick of it, and them.

    They are so deep into denial, and so used to brushing aside objections from those who are not of their faith, that they lack the capacity to understand the appeal of Trump, or the reality that the charade they have been perpetrating on the public is essentially over.

    “For Tommy no bloom’n fool, you bet that Tommy sees.”

  60. This article is by a former assistant US Attorney in the Obama Justice Department who was appalled by what he saw. Prior to this, he has sounded a relatively pessimistic note, but now he believes real change is underway, starting with the departure of a surrender monkey named Boehner. The change he anticipates will cut the throats of the whores, misfits and thieves who are betraying the nation. And there must be enough tar and feathers left in the arsenal to decorate the corpus delecti of big media.
    ———————————————————————————

    The Revolution Has Begun
    Democrats shouldn’t take glee in Boehner’s ousting:
    the revolution is done messing around, and they are next.
    by J. Christian Adams

    “You can almost see the circuits blowing.” – Neil Peart, in Far Cry

    It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it started, but with Speaker John Boehner’s resignation announcement, there’s no doubt the revolution has begun. Perhaps it was the first time you bookmarked the Drudge Report. Or maybe, when at the Drudge Report, you said: “Who is this Breitbart?” Eric Cantor’s primary loss to Dave Brat was certainly a moment when the revolution was stirring and produced tangible results rather than just internet narrative.

    Regardless of when the revolution started, it’s clearly underway.

    First, what do I mean by revolution? Like with all revolutions, the old ways are being replaced. But this revolution has a twist: the revolution is trying to replace the old ways of doing business with even older, and more timeless ways. Namely, this revolution is a revolution against centralized power.

    It could be that this revolution really started two centuries ago. Perhaps it never stopped. We were warned about the price of eternal vigilance, weren’t we?

    There was a time when the Republican Party stood as the bulwark against centralized power, against Washington, D.C., eroding personal space. When both houses of Congress were held by President Obama’s party, the Republican Party stood as the most well-placed institution to oppose his agenda.

    Things were bad. But if only we had the House! That was the rallying cry from fundraisers, politicians in the minority, and their consultants. So the revolution delivered the House in 2010. But things didn’t seem to change. Obama consolidated his gains and entrenched. There was no consequence.

    If only we had the Senate! That was the new rallying cry from the fundraisers, politicians in the House majority, politicians in the Senate minority, and their consultants.

    So the revolution delivered the Senate in 2014. Again, things didn’t seem to change. Instead of opposing Obama with every constitutional tool available, yes including the power of the purse, the new leadership failed to return the favor that the revolution bestowed on them in 2010 and 2014.

    Instead of the speaker of the House rolling back Obama’s counter-American revolution, Boehner gained a golf buddy. (And yes, that’s precisely what Obama represents — a retreat from American ideals two centuries old. But more on that another day.)

    Capture

    The revolution is bad news for a number of Republican figures. Jeb Bush might top the list.

    Jeb’s presidential campaign seems like a political sitcom from Antenna TV – the cable network with the rabbit-ears logo that plays shows from a kinder, gentler time, decades ago. That was before the progressive left marched through federal institutions and turned them against mainstream America. Jeb’s campaign is suited for another time.

    The revolution was also very bad for Eric Cantor and others who seem to feel more at home appearing on the pages of the New York Times than in conservative media.

    One of the favorite canards used against the revolution is: “What would you have us do, shut down the government?!” Fear of a government shutdown is to Republican leaders inside the Beltway what fear of witches was in colonial New England. But the Planned Parenthood videos changed everything, and rendered GOP fear of a shutdown a morally bankrupt position. The revolution isn’t happy.

    Let’s recap: Conservative guerrilla journalists captured real, unedited, and unambiguous video showing a federally funded organization engaged in behavior as gruesome and morally bankrupt as anything that occurred in the 20th century. If there is anything worth shutting down the government for, it is federal tax dollars going to Planned Parenthood.

    Force Obama to defend what we saw on video. He’d lose. If he didn’t back down, he’d be backed into a corner filled with radical feminists and abortion worshipers. The GOP wins when it pushes Obama into such an extremist corner.

    In other words, the revolution created all the briefing materials, videos, and talking points for GOP leadership to score a tremendous victory and simultaneously stop the flow of tax dollars to a barbaric and wicked organization.

    Instead, the Washington GOP establishment demoralized their base and surrendered without a fight. Everybody knows they have no courage to fight. If there was ever something worth fighting over, it was those dystopian videos.

    Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal had the courage to fight. Faced with Planned Parenthood advocates protesting at the governor’s mansion, he turned the building into a giant theater screen and showed video of Planned Parenthood’s vivisection dishes and body parts marketing.

    The opposition in Baton Rouge fled — they couldn’t stand the images. Too bad the GOP leadership in Washington didn’t recognize a favorable field of battle like Jindal did.

    People outside of Washington, D.C., have a hard time appreciating the culture of the Beltway. The revolution is directed at this culture, but it isn’t well understood. The revolution sends people to Washington, and they get wobbly. And it’s not just confined to fiscal issues — notice how Justice David Souter went native once he got on the Court.

    Let’s get one thing straight. Fixing Washington requires someone who understands Washington. I’ve been inside the bureaucracies and know how the entrenched bureaucrats can hoodwink even the most zealous overseer. Utilizing someone who understands their language and has tangled with them will be the only way to make progress. It takes an outsider who understands the language and tricks. Not all outsiders need apply.

    So what’s up next for the revolution? Some accounts say Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is on deck. One thing seems likely: the revolution will play a central role in picking the next Republican nominee. The establishment GOP needs the revolution far more than the revolution needs the establishment GOP.

    While Democrats might enjoy the intra-party bloodletting, the institutional left might have even more to fear: as they say, these people don’t play around. They are coming after you next.

    The revolutionaries place themselves in the pedigree of Americans who accept risk because of the ideas at stake. They aren’t sunshine patriots. They love America and fear for it in ways that the comfortable class in Washington doesn’t seem to appreciate. All of this might sound silly to some, but go ask John Boehner what he’ll be doing next

  61. so typical…and annoying…makes you want to yell at the TV…

    been listening to the analysis and response to Trump’s tax plan and press conference earlier today…

    …and generally he is getting good marks and reviews…even from foe, Bill Kristol, and the ‘revered’ David Gergen…

    …some are skeptical and dismiss it as “aspirational” Borgia, et al…

    but all of them when discussing if his plan would bring in enough money…all of them ignored the points DT ALSO made about all the cutting he plans to do…not just, eliminating loopholes and tax credits…but cutting waste and needless spending…$900 hammers, etc…

    these pundits just cannot seem to get more than one concept when analyzing DT…

  62. RNC Vice Chair: McConnell Needs to Resign
    by The Tatler
    September 28, 2015 – 12:56 pm

    Capitalizing on the momentum of John Boehner’s resignation as speaker of the House, the RNC vice vhair is calling for the Senate majority leader to follow suit.

    “McConnell needs to resign!!” Louisiana GOP Chairman Roger Villere wrote in a Facebook posting.

    Villere is no lightweight. He is the longest-serving state GOP chairman in the country and he serves on the executive committee alongside RNC Chair Reince Priebus.

    “Mitch is a good and honorable guy, but the base is leaving our party,” Mr. Villere said in an interview with the Washington Times. “I’m out in the field all the time and we have all our elections this year for state offices, and it’s hurting us tremendously with our elections.”

    The McConnell and Priebus camps had not responded for comment on Villere’s statement as of Sunday.

    Villere had no suggestions for a McConnell replacement. “Honestly, I haven really thought of a replacement,” he said. “We are being so beat up by the base. I just was frustrated.”

    The RNC vice chair pinpointed the source of Republican frustration.

    “Mr. McConnell could have suspended consideration of confirmations for all presidential appointees, except for those who are essential to national security, until the president rescinded his unconstitutional executive action on amnesty,” Mr. Villere said.

    “This would have been a constitutionally appropriate response to the overreach of the executive branch,” he said. “It would have transformed the political environment, greatly encouraged Republican donors and grass-roots activists, and positioned us to refuse to confirm replacements for any Supreme Court openings that might occur during the remainder of the Obama administration.”

    “Not trying to repeal Obamacare, not defunding Planned Parenthood, not trying to stop illegal immigration,” he said. “That is what Republicans ran on and once they were elected they did not follow up with their promises.”

    What moved Villere to call for McConnell to resign? He said he read a story quoting McConnell taking a government shutdown off the table over Planned Parenthood funding.

    “If we lose the battle, we will never win the presidency again in my lifetime,” said Mr. Villere, who is 66. “I’ve worked for 12 years as chairman to build this party, and I just don’t want to see it all go down the drain because they aren’t willing to fight for what we believe in. Our base is demanding we do something or they’re going to leave us.”

    “The GOP brand is being damaged. We’re having to work from scratch to do all the groundwork we’ve already done with elections of Republicans to Congress and in the state because everybody is so furious at the leadership,” Mr. Villere said.

  63. Shadow…maybe this will help….it is being reported that Bill is getting ready to step into Hill’s campaign, starting with fundraisers…

    imho…Bill can only strengthen Hillary’s campaign and should have been more involved sooner ( i would have liked Clinton 3 from a female POV from the beginning)
    ______________

    Well it’s about damn time! Maybe he can inject some life and some sense into that campaign.

  64. Free

    Well it’s about damn time! Maybe he can inject some life and some sense into that campaign.

    Makes me wonder why Hillary is acting like a damsel in distress, needs her stud Big Dawg to ride in and save her.

    What the Kook Hell game is Hillary playing? When did the few minorities she is bending over to count more than her loyal supporters.

    I am just damn pist at her.

    I am glad you used the word “initial”.

    I take that to mean preliminary with leave to revise, based on future developments.

    If Bush is the nominee, it will be the death of the Republican Party.

    As you know, I have been consistent from the beginning about McConnell, Boehner and a party that would put them in charge of anything. This is no great insight. It comes simply from knowing them, not real well, but enough to know that they have no principles, and are therefore strictly tools. Two politicians who are honest only in the sense that they stay bought. The video posted by hwc above shows Cruz calling it the same way. But it did not take Ted to tell me that. Nor do I have any qualms about predicting the break up of the party, if Bush is the nominee. It is written. That said, I do not see the donors staying with Bush, I really do not. He is a geek. He is also an embarrassment. And, worst of all, he is a Bush. As Justice Holmes said in a case on involuntary sterilization: three generations of idiots is enough.

  67. Posted with profound apology to wbb and others who suffer distress over mention of this guy. I’ve avoided his name here for a long time, but cannot ignore this:

    Perhaps a one night stand, but nonetheless notable IMO.

  68. Erin Burnett was professional, respectful and courteous. Her follow up questions were asked with intelligence and vigor. She asked him good, old fashioned and tough questions but I never saw condescension or contempt from her as I did with Scotty Pellet-boy.

    Bill Cristal-Champagne [“the voice of zsars and stars”] blinked last night. I even think he blinked twice. The “aspirational Borgia” crap got old quick after he used it the first time.

    Always ignored or dare not discussed, is the trillions spent on illegals. The costs are staggering. We have several countries riding our backs. I hope Trump is saving that for the general election. We are borrowing money to pay for illegals and taxing the hell out of the middle and lower class (sales and property taxes) to pay for our replacements. It is insane. The stupidest thing a country has ever done. Now we see that the UK and Germany have been doing the same thing but with a different set of non citizens. We pay (directly or heavily subsidized) their bills from conception to burial in and out of country. And they demand more! Mexico won’t even provide them with paperwork but wants the states to do it for them- FREE- and in violation of national identity theft laws! They are suing Texas to provide the illegal alien parents with documentation so the state has the privilege of educating, feeding and providing healthcare for their children. They won’t even spring for f’ing passports for their own citizens to access the US taxpayer tit. Enough. Get out. All illegals. Now. While they can find housing and a job in Mexico. Wait too long and it will be a nightmare.

    He is a clone of that John whateverthefuck his name is on Face the Nation. If you read what Sharyl Attkission said above narrowly and more broadly in her book Stonewalled it become obvious that both of these miscreants are controlled beasts, controlled by a big media cabal in New York who pushes it directives down the food chain and is hostile to ideas moving up the chain. It is very much the Martin Boreman model of government, and it is equally manifest in the Obama Administration with a Boremanesque figure Jarrett running their version of the Third Reich. You can see it as well in the above video posted by holdemaccountable posted directly above, where Representative Loomis describes the legislative process under Boehner which transmorgified into one where instead of bills originating in committees, and being vetted there before sent to the floor for a vote, those bills come directly from the Speakers office, are drafted by non Members and are never read or vetted. This commonality across the spectrum from big media to congress to fundraising represents a huge move away from democracy to oligarchy, and begs the ultimate question quo vaidis–whiter goest thou. To me it is plain and simple. The elites are operating off a globalist model as opposed to a national one. In their view, the American People do not count. It is high time they and their families were held accountable for what they are doing to this nation. Because sure as the earth turns we–the rest of us, will be the losers. Already they are measuring us for our coffins. And while they are doing that we should be measuring them for theirs, all satin lined. The ultimate answer may emerge not here but in Europe, which is further down this suicidal path. To me, I understand the forces, by the resolution is an imponderable. But this much is clear. A clean break from the Republican Party is essential. Democrats lack the capacity to understand the problem so it will have to happen first, if at all, in the Republican Party. It is a lifetime exercise in futility to think you can clean up that swamp. And while you are busy fighting that battle, the bad guys will continue their plan for globalization. A clean break is essential plus a complete take down of big media. What Donald and Ted are doing to de-louse the corrupt system in Washington is only the beginning. But there will be a gotterdamerung of that I am sure.

  72. I would like to see someone go on with Pelley and repeat over and over in response to every question: who the fuck do you think you are, you sanctimonious little prick? And, over and over again–I don’t agree with your question, so I am going to tell you the answer you should have asked and answer it my way, so shut the fuck up. One way or the other, they need to turn the Bunson burner up on this made to measure asshole till his eyes bug out and he starts gasping for air. But of course, that is just an opinion.
