@RealDonaldTrump’s New Book Crippled America – With Tremendous Potential

Jeb Bush has a new slogan and a new book today. Jeb Bush, faced with a failed campaign is forced to campaign in Florida. Florida!!! The new Bush slogan is “Jeb Can Fix It”. What the “it” is we can only surmise is either to “fix” the primary election or his campaign – unless Jeb Bush is about to undergo a vasectomy. The new Jeb Bush book is called “Reply All“. Few outside the Bush family will read the new Jeb Bush tome which like the author is a replacement for sleeping pills.

Donald Trump has a new book to be released on Tuesday. Many will read the new Donald J. Trump book. The new Donald J. Trump book is called Crippled America and will be welcomed by thousands at the initial book signing:

Here is a short excerpt from the book:

Look at the state of the world right now. It’s a terrible mess, and that’s putting it mildly. There has never been a more dangerous time. The politicians and special interests in Washington, DC, are directly responsible for the mess we are in. So why should we continue listening to them?

It’s time to bring America back to its rightful owners—the American people.

I’m not going to play the same game politicians have been playing for decades—all talk, no action, while special interests and lobbyists dictate our laws. I am shaking up the establishment on both sides of the political aisle because I can’t be bought. I want to bring America back, to make it great and prosperous again, and to be sure we are respected by our allies and feared by our adversaries.

It’s time for action. Americans are fed up with politics as usual. And they should be! In this book, I outline my vision to make America great again, including: how to fix our failing economy; how to reform health care so it is more efficient, cost-effective, and doesn’t alienate both doctors and patients; how to rebuild our military and start winning wars—instead of watching our enemies take over—while keeping our promises to our great veterans; how to ensure that our education system offers the resources that allow our students to compete internationally, so tomorrow’s job seekers have the tools they need to succeed; and how to immediately bring jobs back to America by closing our doors to illegal immigrants, and pressuring businesses to produce their goods at home.

This book is my blueprint for how to Make America Great Again. It’s not hard. We just need someone with the courage to say what needs to be said. We won’t find that in Washington, DC.

Donald Trump, mocked unceasingly by Big Media, is nevertheless surviving and thriving. Ever so slowly more and more the mockery has turned to fear for the establishment and a new, real hope, for many Americans. The new, real hope, comes from the “Crippled America” diagnosis but more from Trump’s solution – Make America Great Again.

To our shock, and pleasant surprise shock it is, the Washington Post this past weekend published an article which sought, mostly without snark, to understand the Donald Trump phenomenon. The answer it appears is that Donald Trump echoes the views of many Americans:

Seeking America’s ‘lost’ greatness and finding Trump most appealing [snip]

Even if they don’t have “Make America Great Again” campaign caps, Donald Trump’s supporters easily recite the signature slogan of the real estate developer’s insurgent presidential bid. And even if they don’t agree on exactly why the country lost its way, they do accept — give or take a few degrees of hyperbole — Trump’s contention that the United States has become, as he has put it, “an economic wasteland” that is “committing cultural suicide.” [snip]

Interviews with Trump supporters across the country find a profusion of perspectives on how and when America lost its mojo; what bonds them is a sense of frustration so abiding that they’re willing to take a chance on a man they readily admit is anything but presidential, at least the way the term has historically been defined.

The way he talks is just silly sometimes — he sounds like a fourth-grader,” said Holly Martin, a freelance technology writer who recently moved, in search of a lower cost of living, from the suburbs of Washington to the exurban town of Winchester, Va. But Martin, 59, attended a training session for Trump campaign volunteers recently because “he talks like a regular guy, and he actually loves this country. He’s not afraid to say that we’ve lost our good character.”

Many Trump supporters interpret their candidate’s rough rhetoric not as anger, but as determination. Without ever having seen Trump’s reality TV show, “The Apprentice,” Martin has come to think that he has a rare ability to get things done. She was a Republican all her life — until her party regained the majority in Congress in 2014 and proceeded, she said, “to do nothing. They did nothing on Obamacare, nothing on cutting spending, nothing on restoring honesty. They hate us, so now I’m done with Republicans. Trump is not one of them. He doesn’t hate us. He really believes we can make America great again, and I’m not an optimistic person, but I think he can, because he’s got a built-in ability to use the media, just like Obama.” [snip]

Cimbal doesn’t view Trump as an optimist of the Reagan stripe, but she’s okay with voting for a harsh critic. “He speaks his mind,” she said. “So many of the others are wishy-washy. Mr. Trump isn’t a provocateur to annoy people but to get them thinking.”

Cimbal, a loyal Republican, wants people to think about how to curb illegal immigration and protect Second Amendment gun ownership rights, but she’s mainly drawn to Trump because she thinks his plain talk can get things done. Her goal is to restore a time “when there wasn’t as much animosity toward each other, when everything wasn’t about race and people just got along.” [snip]

Joe McCoy, who is 31, says he started out this campaign season “laughing at this Trump guy like everyone else.”

Still, the more he heard Trump, the more the greatness slogan resonated. “He boasts a lot, he’s got trophy wives, he’s not exactly Mr. Clean, so I was skeptical,” said McCoy, who lives in Norwich, Conn., where he does tech support from home for a multinational company.

Mitt Romney was more my kind of guy: practical, a nice guy. But you know, people don’t like a nice guy. They like this guy because he’s right about us losing our country. I really don’t think we should be letting kids go into whichever bathroom they want to in school. The Democrats are really reaching too far on the social issues. And there’s no retirement anymore, no pensions.”

McCoy laments the pervasive sense that it no longer pays to play by the rules. That’s where immigration enters the equation: “When my wife came here from the Philippines, she had to go through a health assessment, background checks and interviews to become a citizen. Now, these people come in from Mexico and Central America through some mule, just whoever comes.”

“I’m not a rigid tea partyer,” he continued. “I’m in favor of government paying for roads and the fire department. Social Security is a great thing. But I don’t think Trump is really much of a conservative; he’s definitely more moderate than the others.”

The Republican Party is torn by change. When Obama destroyed the Democratic Party the Republican Party also changed. Now even long term conservatives have woken to the lies their party fed them. Conservative leaders made promises but the only promises kept were those that benefited the conservative leaders. We classic “liberals” learned in 2008 about how the party you considered your home lies. That’s why Trump trumps. Trump called out the lies and opened many eyes to the naked truth about our emperors.

Crippled America” is the diagnosis. “Make America Great Again“, is the solution:

That free-floating sense of decline expresses itself in many different ways among Trump supporters. Some speak of a fading sense of mobility, a loss of the expectation that each generation will surpass its parents’ standard of living. Others focus on the loss of blue-collar jobs and a sense that only those with computer backgrounds can take advantage of the new digital economy.

Although Trump has said in campaign speeches that he came up with his slogan himself, Ronald Reagan put “Let’s Make America Great Again” on buttons and posters in his 1980 campaign, and John Kennedy used “We Can Do Better” and “Get This Country Moving Again” as slogans in 1960. [snip]

“There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America,” Bill Clinton said in his first inaugural address in 1993. [snip]

In this past week’s GOP debate, Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) pointedly presented a more optimistic perspective, rejecting the developer’s blunt, blustery barbs about the nation’s decline. “Our greatest days lie ahead,” Rubio said.

Undaunted, Trump began his closing statement with one of his trademark lines: “Our country doesn’t win anymore.” It’s a theme he has developed in several of his books, including a new 2016 campaign edition of “Time to Get Tough!,” where he writes: “The country I love is a total economic disaster right now. We have become a laughingstock, the world’s whipping boy, blamed for everything, credited for nothing, given no respect. You see and feel it all around you, and so do I.” [snip]

Lieber sees Trump’s slogan as a symbol of his ability to slice through standard political rhetoric: “His discourse is deliberately provocative, but he’s refreshing to a lot of people because he talks about reality with the bark off, and people are sick to death of the language of political correctness.

The diagnosis of a “Crippled America” should not be confused with pessimism. To the contrary, it is facing the truth and doing something about it. Most Trump supporters likely believe America is in decline but that there is “Tremendous Potential”.

Trump supporters such as the Jane and Joe Citizens quoted by the Washington Post believe Donald Trump’s diagnosis of a “Crippled America” is correct. Some volunteer for Trump. Some employ their talents to discuss the flip side of “Crippled America” and that is “Tremendous Potential”.



“Tremendous Potential” is not an official Donald J. Trump campaign advertisement. “Tremendous Potential” is a Youtube produced by another Jane/Joe Citizen. “Tremendous Potential’s penultimate quote is from Sir Winston Churchill. It’s one of our favorite quotes.



Churchill’s defiant message delivered during the darkest days of World War II is a message Americans need to hear today. In Crippled America Donald Trump makes the correct diagnosis. With Make America Great Again, Donald Trump provides his solution to the nation’s current travails.

  1. Sweden needs a Trump:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3297317/Swedish-Foreign-Minister-claims-country-facing-collapse-mass-influx-refugees.html

    Swedish Foreign Minister says country is ‘collapsing’ due to migrants

    Margot Wallstrom says Sweden cannot cope with the influx of refugees
    Says country is facing collapse as 190,000 asylum seekers arrive each year
    Has called on other EU member states to share burden in taking in migrants

    The Swedish Foreign Minister has claimed her country is facing collapse due to the mass influx of refugees as the migrant crisis deepens.

    Margot Wallstrom has said that Sweden cannot cope with taking in refugees at its current level, without it affecting services. [snip]

    It is expected that Sweden will take in around 190,000 migrants by the end of 2015. In the first nine months of the year, more than 73,000 people applied for asylum in Sweden.

    And Mrs Wallstrom said in an interview: ‘I think most people feel that we cannot maintain a system where perhaps 190,000 people will arrive every year – in the long run, our system will collapse.

    ‘And that welcome is not going to receive popular support. [snip]

    The Foreign Minister’s comments come after arsonists attacked housing for asylum seekers in the small town of Munkedal, in the south of the country.

  2. http://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/poll-even-florida-voters-are-giving-up-on-jeb-bush-8021133

    In the first statewide poll taken since Wednesday’s debate, Bush is now stuck in fifth place in the state that elected him to govern twice. In fact, the data even suggests that Bush is no longer many Florida Republicans’ second choice for the nomination.

    Here are the results from the Viewpoint Florida poll:

    Donald Trump – 26.81%
    Marco Rubio – 16.28%
    Ben Carson – 15.07%
    Ted Cruz – 12.41%
    Jeb Bush – 12.07%
    Carly Fiorina – 4.40%
    Other – 4.67%
    Unsure – 8.29%

    Bush’s base of support is crumbling. Though he still leads in Florida among a few demographics. In the Miami media market (which includes Broward and the Keys), he comes out on top with 28.63 percent to Rubio’s 23.89 percent (Trump is third in the market with 18.56 percent). Bush also leads among Hispanics with 36.46 percent to Rubio’s 27.61 percent. He was also far and away the top choice of those responding to the poll in Spanish with 48.09 of the vote.

    Bush is also a solid second place among young Republicans aged 18 to 34, with 28.70 percent to Trump’s 29.11 percent.

    Bush struggles mightily elsewhere. He’s under 10 percent in major markets like Tampa and Orlando and is particularly unpopular among Florida Republicans between 35 and 49.

    And he might not have much room to rebuild a base of support.

  3. …has anyone given any notice to the fact that America’s seniors are baring a lot of the burden for the folly of democratic policies…

    for example…first of all seniors who have chosen to save what money they have in CD’s have earned almost nothing for their money for as long as O admin has existed and prior to that…0 to .5 % if they are lucky…( a rigged system against those vulnerable on fixed incomes)

    now…in the last two weeks it came out that there will be no increase in social security for seniors in the upcoming year…with everything else going up in cost around them, food, housing, assisted living costs, health care costs, etc, etc, etc…they will not get anything…no increase…from their govt…

    however, the influx of refugees and last years surge of illegal immigrants along with the millions already here and their families and the current surge of immigrants will be getting all kinds of governmental assistance from the American taxpayers…they will get health care, back taxes, an education, housing, cell phones, voting rights, drivers licenses…you name it…all that illegal activity will be rewarded by our government and they will be protected from any responsibility by santucary cities…and now they will be joined by large numbers of prisoners set free…

    this is the current value system of the far left Democratic party and sadly what Hillary supports…

    …what I support regarding Donald Trump is he puts the emphasis back on US…the United States or “us”…how refreshing that someone would care about trying to put the balance back where it belongs…on making America great for Americans again…and with our refound strength then we can try to help others…instead of making us feel guilty for wanting to take care of our own struggling families and be successful…or trying to make us all out to be racists…

    not the way the Democrats want to do it…they would rather ignore Americans being murdered by illegals then change their policies…

    Go Donald…might for right…

  4. Trump shoots off his big effin’ mouth again. He has no verbal filters and I think as someone running for office…this is disgusting —

    I don’t like DebbyUglyHair, but I would never say what he says on TV, ever.

    Sorry but I am not on the Big Pink Trump band wagon. He has to learn to stop trashing people…and act like a effin’ adult!!!!!!!

    ——-

    Trump said, “[y]ou have this crazy Wasserman Schultz — Deborah Wasserman Schultz — who is in there, a highly neurotic woman.”

    “This is a woman that is a terrible person. I watch her on television. She’s a terrible person,”

  5. Shadofax,

    That is just not so bad. DWS has it coming for having her head up Obola’s ass (now, that was really bad).

  6. Ooops, left this part out:

    Its landmark nuclear agreement with the U.S. implemented, Iran is now moving to block American imports.

  7. I was out at Trump International in Jupiter, Fl today on business. Very decadent. That man could just go live the good life. Why would he do this to his life? He will be lucky not to get assassinated. I do not care if he says stupid stuff to keep the pot stirred. He is the only one who looks like he knows what to do and is willing to try to do it.

  8. LO

    You are absolutely right. Enough of phony politically correct, politicians that have sold us down the river, into a toxic dump.
    Hillary may be well spoken, I give her that, but she wants to give away America and support every left wing nut job proposal.
    Give me someone who truly loves America and Americans..
    TRUMP 2016.

  9. sorry…but DWS is “terrible”…i might have chosen a different way of describing her but she is WAY, WAY over the top…and she says things that are so insane about her opposition that I’m glad someone is calling her out…

    her and her war on women and the rest of her foolish comments deserve to be called crazy…she is more than cringe worthy…next to O, when DWS is on I immediately have to turn the channel…she has become a big joke…

  10. I see the Dim running to placate the ‘black lives matter’ crowd, particularly Hillary is in full force pandering…when are they going to say one word about this issue:

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/02/exclusive-david-perdue-georgia-called-border-state-violent-illegal-immigrants-entering-u-s-frequently/

    Exclusive — David Perdue on Georgia Being Called ‘Border State’: ‘Violent Illegal Immigrants’ Entering U.S. Frequently

    David Perdue, a freshman who was elected to the U.S. Senate last year after a long career in business, told Breitbart News he’s seriously concerned about illegal alien violence in Georgia. His state, Atlanta’s WSBT reports, is quickly becoming a “border state” that must deal with an illegal immigrant crime wave.

    One of the victims mentioned in the report, Manju Poonmagar, emigrated to the United States legally and resided in Georgia. She was killed outside of her apartment in 2013 by illegal alien Sergio Vera-Lula. Vera-Lula had already been deported to Mexico three times, but repeatedly returned to the U.S. illegally. Vera-Lula pled guilty and was given a life sentence.

    The report analyzed the U.S.immigration and Customs Enforcement removal records from fiscal years 2003-2013 and found a pattern of undocumented repeat offenders returning to the United States.

    Of the 386,485 unauthorized immigrants removed from the United States in 2013, 222,972 of them – 60% – had at least prior removal. 42,116 of the total unauthorized immigrants removed that year had been convicted of an aggravated felony. Of those felons, 27,159 had been removed before. That’s 64%.

    Among the aggravated felons who had been removed at least once before were 281 killers, 178 kidnappers, 1149 sex criminals and thousands convicted on drug charges.

    Perdue responded to the report by telling Breitbart News that “The reality is violent illegal immigrants are repeatedly entering our country and posing a dangerous risk to our families and communities.”

    “Too many victims have unjustly suffered the consequences of President Obama’s lawless executive amnesty and lack of action to address this illegal immigration crisis,” Perdue added. “As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I cosponsored Kate’s Law and several other measures to stop the influx of illegal felons into Georgia and the United States.”

  11. I’m glad that DT represents the opposite of political correctness. Thanks to Obama and the kooks who have taken PC to a ridiculous level, the country is fed-up with it, and the anger and disgust with the far lefties is reaching critical mass.

    That said, I think Trump runs the risk of taking things a bit too far. It’s refreshing to hear a pol speak the plain unvarnished truth – not spinning or trying to dress it up with four dollar words read from a tele-prompter . People identify with Trump because he is plain spoken. But if he takes it too far it begins to seem contrived and gimmicky.

    I dislike DWS, but I didn’t care for his remarks about her either.

  12. Obviously that should have been “anger and disgust with the far lefties are reaching critical mass”.

    Admin, I really like the term “classic liberal”. We were liberals before liberal went bat shit crazy.

  13. 2 new polls have Clinton whalloping away with the nomination….

    PPP’s new poll has Clinton up 32 points in Iowa. Clinton 57, Sanders 25

    NBC/WSJ new Dem Nom poll has Clinton up 31 points Clinton 62% Sanders 31%

    Neither friendly territory polls for Clinton but have her way up, they must be sick to have to have posted it.

    Any chance Sanders had in the south is in ruins

  16. That’s good news Moon, Bernie needs to start packing his bags.

    Tony, good idea to call them Red Guard Dims. I agree with the ‘indoctrination camps’, especially when it comes to immigration and racial politics.

    Germany now is somewhere at the edge of anarchy and sliding towards civil war, or to become a banana republic without any government, says Hansjoerg Mueller of the Alternative for Germany party.

    Bavarian official Peter Dreier called German Chancellor Angela Merkel to tell her personally that if Germany welcomes a million refugees, his town of Landshut will only take in around 1,800. Any extra will be put on buses and sent to her Chancellery in Berlin.

    RT: He says he’s going to send them to Berlin, but does he have the power?

    Hansjoerg Mueller: The person who wants to send them to Berlin is Mr. Dreier. He is the district head of Landshut, a town close to Munich. Usually he does not have the power, but we are not living in usual times. What we are now looking at is more and more Germany sliding towards anarchy. In this situation I think less and less is determined by law, more and more is determined by who acts. And the person who acts in fact has the power. So if he sends … refugees to Berlin, he sends them!

    __________

    Agreed Tony. Some of the younger Red Guards I know are so determined to continue believing in the liberal cause – no matter how far off course it veers – will believe any and every bit of BS propaganda the Dims and Dim blogs put out.

    Example: I was talking with a young man of the Gen-X age group about illegal immigration. His response to my strongly worded criticism of Obama’s amnesty plan was that he had been told (by the rabid left, I’m sure) that because couples are opting to have fewer – or no – children, the population of this country is dwindling too rapidly and we need the immigrants (presumably legal or otherwise) to make up for the population deficit.

    I was too blown away to answer. It’s not surprising to me that the upper-class young yuppie types are and want to remain liberal, and in order to justify doing so are prepared to accept whatever they’re fed by the far left. It ain’t cool to be a moderate or conservative among the young yuppie types.

    What is surprising is that anyone would offer such a ridiculous rational as justification for granting amnesty to illegals. Only a brain on drugs would think up such drivel.

    Yup Moon, I agree. I was checking out Trump years ago and when I would post something I liked that he talked about…most Big Pinkers went full blast on what a crackpot he was, talked about his hair and made fun of him so badly I hardly ever said much about him after that.

    I also started watching the Apprentice to see more of how he acted and his ideas. On his tv shows, he is much nicer than he has been in his campaign.

    He does seem to be using the personal digs on people he wants to ‘beat’, to such an extent that I have a lot of trouble taking him seriously these days.

    I do think his has some good ideas, I love his idea of a fence and calling out the media….but his personal, childish name-calling is hurting his campain, in my opinion.

    He is still my backup plan if Hillary doesn’t swing more to the middle after the primary…

    My vote is my own, just like everyone else’s here…and I won’t be bullied into going with the flow.

  27. And moon, that’s not saying too much, they all have sold us down the river..even Hillary. .Hillary is especially disappointing because she held so much more promise..
    never again..

  28. I hear what Moon and Shadowfax are saying about Trump being trustworthy. But here is the thing… none of them are. It is what Trump is doing right now, for whatever reason, that makes me grateful and hopeful.

    Do you know that the man actually took on the FED and Obama and has laid bear their treachery like nobody else could:

    He accused them of foul play.

    At a press conference to push his new book, Crippled America, Donald Trump accused President Barack Obama and Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen of foul play over interest rates.

    Trump accused the Fed of keeping interest rates low for “political reasons” and as a boon to President Obama, according to Reuters.

    “They are not raising [rates] because Obama has asked them not to raise them,” Trump said at the press conference. “He wants to get out of office, because we’re in a bubble, and when those rates are raised, a lot of bad things are going to happen.”

    “Janet Yellen is highly political and she’s not raising rates for a very specific reason: Because Obama told her not to because he wants to be out playing golf in a year from now and he wants to be doing other things and he doesn’t want to see a big bubble burst during his administration,” the Republican Presidential contender added.

    http://fortune.com/2015/11/03/donald-trump-barack-obama-janet-yellen/

    Yes, I have to say, for today, he is my hero.

  29. Lu, Trump has some good ideas…I have always said so.

    Trump is no Hillary, and right now, I put my money on her.

  30. Your right Trump is no Hillary, he’s supports immigration control, building walls, American jobs first, against TPP…Hillary supports Wall street and the socialist agenda, increased welfare , increased illegals agenda, black lives matter vs all lives matter, climate control agenda aka wealth distribution…Trump 2016
    You either believe what she says or You dont, those are her words, not mine.

  31. Lu…I have been saying that for gears, these rates are being pushed by obama…There will be he’ll to pay.
    He tells it like it is, no one, no one else has his cojones

  32. gonzotx

    Are you really trying to convince me to think like you do? After all these years, you know we don’t agree on much.

    We both have a right to our own opinions and my criticisms are normally not against you, I am just posting my opinion of different candidates.

  33. Shadowfax,

    Hillary would have been great for the country in 2008. She would have implemented social programs so much more successfully than O. But he has done what he has done and they are disastrous. Incompetent and corrupt, just like he is. The capital has been spent and now there is too much debt to try again. Oh, what a mistake in ’08. For the country and for the world. And look at the party elites whose greed was behind it. May the reap what they have sown in human misery.

    I do not know who Hillary is right now. She sounds just like Obama. It is a nightmare. The country is too crippled to take any more. I just don’t know.

    It is a year until the election. I am sure things will get clear before then. But right now what this country need is the message Trump brings. Even if he is never POTUS he has already served his country well.

    So that is why I say…

    TRUMP! TRUMP! TRUMP!

  34. LOL.. troll… troll… troll… clean up on aisle sixteen.
    Bring back the other “troll”; more the merrier.

    It is a year until the election. I am sure things will get clear before then. But right now what this country need is the message Trump brings. Even if he is never POTUS he has already served his country well.

    ———–
    I agree with that Lu.

    Souther Born.. no way another insipid Black guy will win..unless of course, they rig the voting machines.

    I bet BO would love to see Deval slap down Hillary. He kinda looks like an older version of his old flame, Love – the body man.

  37. Lu, I agree with you. I believe Trump has different speeds. You can see a much more comfortable, restrained speed when he sits down for interviews. And yes, just in this short time of running, he has awakened new people to start voting, made people feel a sense of peace instead of fear, made people feel safe, perhaps similar to being a child and feeling so glad that your parents have come home and will make everything “all better” – I guess perhaps that’s a feeling of no longer feeling alone, feeling that there is a strong, dedicated person on your side.

    I’ve always imagined movements like an arrow. The front part is is sharp, hard, and (lol in Trump’s case) “to the point”. The rest of the arrow moves through more smoothly, pulled by the arrow in front. I think Trump is the that arrow, and his brashness may have been needed to wake people up, to shake them free of their pc speech, to make them not feel powerless. He has already shown the other candidates how to use leverage, how to call out injustices. It would have been far harder if he weren’t brash. It’s like he needed to be that arrow, to smash through and destroy the old ways, so they could be put together more sensibly.

    What…rig voting machines. Who ever heard of such. WINK! WINK!
    _____________

    So right, SB. Never would Obama’s pals rig a voting machine – anymore than they would drive busloads of college age stoners from one state to another to vote, or lock the doors of caucus polling places so Hillary’s delegates couldn’t vote. No way.

  39. …and don’t forget ACORN, dead voters, jailed felons voting, massive illegal campaign donations, the DNC giving away Hillary’s votes, and the Black Panthers at voting sites.

    Nope, just a normal election where Hillary won the majority of votes and LOST.

  40. No Shadow,
    I wouldn’t dream of trying to convince anyone that Hillary had jumped the shark..it’s there in plain print, video to see.
    The choice is always ones own.
    I just have decided to take her at her own words.
    The days of “what does Hillary really mean, or Obama must have something on her, or she’s just saying this to get elected”..are over for me.
    Like most on this site I put in tons of hours, money and heart for her…so, I feel I’ve earned my say…
    So when some people still are excited when her poll numbers rise, I just am amazed, that’s all, and feel compelled to point out the obvious to me.

  41. I would think that most people here, most of whom are centrists – some, conservative – would be happy to see Hillary’s numbers rise higher than Bernie Boy’s.

  42. Oy. I just heard on the news that Hillary is going to meet with the mothers of Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin. She used to research issues. Did she stop? Or does she just want to pad the narrative and continue the divisiveness of Obama? I just realized, pandering is a type of p.c. I’m sick of people not being truthful and just saying what will benefit themselves, no matter that it’s a lie….

  43. free, I’ve never thought that Sanders the Socialist would get any further than highs in a couple of certain types of states. I bet if they polled him in the city of San Francisco, he’d probably get 100% lol

    If Sanders WERE to win the nomination, that means the whole party just needs to be torn down, burned up, the ashes buried in the ocean floor, etc. IMO, he shouldn’t even be in our government with his socialist crap. That dem debate where they were all trying to outdo each other with how much free stuff they would give away – does not one of the dem candidates have any idea how to raise healthy people and a healthy country? Hint – it’s not through giving away free stuff and squashing any spark of self-improvement, hard work, pride, achievement, etc…

  44. gonzotx

    It seems to me that the few of us that have something positive to say about Hillary, on Hillaryis44 will have to either have to accept getting a load of wrath from you, or slip out of site to let this be taken over exclusively by Trump supporters.

    Ain’t gonna happen.

  45. correction, I misheard – Hillary met with the two mothers last night. Hillary is talking lately a lot about gun violence. Of course, she’s not going to mention that 95% of black murders are done by black murderers. She wants to close the loopholes. Most of those murders are done by criminals using illegal guns. Guess what Hillary, that’s already illegal. There isn’t some special law that will fix it. Criminals don’t care about laws (news flash!).

    Problems can’t be fixed if they aren’t identified. Supporting a false narrative will never fix the problems.

    Hillary is being like a part of the media.. running with a false narrative.

    Sorry. I am getting progressively more fed up with lies, narratives, PC speak which is a barrier to problems being identified and solved, pandering…. I’m tired of politicians. I’m tired of politicians saying whatever like, and then maybe even changing it later, simply for their own self-benefit at any particular moment. I want someone who is going to tell it like it is so it can be fixed.

  46. Southern – when admin first mentioned Obama potentially bringing out a surprise candidate, my first thought was Deval Patrick. I had read back around the time that Obama was selected, that Axelrod ran both of their campaigns, and that Patrick was the test case (as governor of MA) for a future presidential run for Obama. Maybe they want him now to continue O’s – cough!cough! – legacy.

    But admin seemed to later suggest it may be a female. Then my first guess would be Jarrett. Although, have you ever looked closely at photos of her? She has awfully (trigger alert!) – WHITE skin! lol

  47. lol I’m watching Greta right now, and she played a clip of Obama mocking the repub candidates at the last debate, and he characterized it as they “couldn’t handle the moderators” (not the interpretation most people had, most saw it as joyous that someone is calling out the media).

    He also questioned, “how would they handle China or Iran?” (Obama handles them by releasing the billions in sanctions before even sitting down to make a deal, when the the pre-sitting down condition should have been OURS, saying release our Americans you have captive, THEN we’ll talk – but of course, Obama is a terrible negotiator, and likes to give the other side everything they want. Although, maybe it doesn’t have to do with negotiating skill, because I’m not so sure its the “other side” to HIM.)

    Then Greta showed how Carson apparently tweeted or maybe said in an interview, “is this the same Obama who is afraid to go on Fox News?”

    My favorite part was Obama making fun of Trump saying that he would make things happen by his presence (or something, I forget). All I could think of was how this fool actually thought that the color of his skin and his odd name would make all of the Muslim world become our instant friends. I sure wish someone would call him on that. Have “we” ever elected such a fool?

  48. There’s a sheriff in San Francisco who was in office during the Kate Steinle incident, this Sheriff is the one who supported this sanctuary and doubled down even after her murder.

    San Francisco just voted him out. 🙂

    Wow, maybe one day they’ll grow up enough to dump Nancy – we have to pass it to know what’s in it – Pelosy.

    There should be criminal charges filed against people who sign laws they don’t read, who are police but proudly subvert our laws and the constitution, those banks that led to our economic crisis, etc. People with power get away with too much. And we need a law that says they can’t exempt themselves from any laws they write for the rest of us.

  49. Lora

    So true
    I am thrilled the Sheriff got voted out. I will not hold my breathe about California however, but a bit of sunlight did shine through.

  50. Shadow,
    I think your projecting. I’m not really saying anything that Admin, Wbb, and others haven’t said…maybe not as well written, but non the less…I may be taking a shot in the dark here, but we’re of tired of the BS.
    Lorac’s posts about meeting with The Browns and Martins sums it all up..only Black votes matter…

    Oy. I just heard on the news that Hillary is going to meet with the mothers of Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin.

    Hillary must have massive minority turnout (especially black) in the general to win. This includes paying respect to cultural martyrs according to the standards of that culture. Doing it this early (before primaries even start) gets it out of the way and other parts of her “coalition” won’t remember it. The further she swings out now, the further she will swing back to the middle in the general. Her problem of course is alienating the middle now who will see her swing as hypocrisy. Elites (and Hillary is now very much an elite) always think the goobers can’t remember anything. Of course the goobers remember Bill and much of her goodwill comes from that but she doesn’t acknowledge that for some reason.

  52. Post election. After watching two NYC channels citing a Carson Clinton matchup at 47 – 47 with Donald on his way down, I had little taste for any more on the tube. Seems Dems did well in NY and also PA where a PAC smearing 2 female Supreme Court nominees with the outlawed and “never happened” phrase “Radical Anti-Choice” worked. Better news for GOP across country with Matt Bevin Governor-elect in KY, San Fran sheriff blamed for Steinle murder – GONE.

    The Pennsylvanians For Judicial Reform PAC highlighted money from SEIU and Philly trial lawyers. New Philly mayor, a Dem, won by landslide. GOP’s challenger Melissa4Mayor hardly lifted a finger. Seriously, it looks like she was paid to lose. Obama-Wolf-McGinty-Casey influence still tremendous. Maybe we also have some of the largest influx of illegals. Big fights recently. Mostly school kids starting something police had to finish. 400 kids in Reading PA when Pope was here. Latino mother of one student planted her foot in a cop’s groin. I thought that should have had coverage, but just Allentown and Philly station covered it. Thenlast week 100 kids beating up cops in Allentown.

    continued.
    Belatedly I realized I should mention that since her indictment, there have been calls for PA’s Democrat AG Kathleen Kane to step down. She has refused. [Whoever in PA can do so]has suspended her license to practice law.
    Likely none of the election questions I have will receive attention especially since latest revelation: Kathleen is entangled in the request for a new trial for Jerry Sandusky, the child molester who brought down the venerable Joe Paterno and severely damaged Penn State.

    The people here are really nice. The pols are pukey.

  55. Lorac, I know what you mean about Bernie-Boy, the self-confessed socialist lol But the old dude has a definite following among Obama-dims, kooks and the DU-bies. Members of those and other far left groups hate Hillary almost more than the Repubs.

    Shadow, I agree with you 100 %.

    I hear what Moon and Shadowfax are saying about Trump being trustworthy. But here is the thing… none of them are. It is what Trump is doing right now, for whatever reason, that makes me grateful and hopeful.

    I agree Lu.
    we are in a snake pit, And Trump is holding the big Stick. 🙂

  57. I like this comment. 😆

    And to think that Bevin won the Republican primary by only 83 votes. It just goes to show that in the primary races, every vote counts – every one So get out there and vote (if you are a conservative, that is; if not, just stay home).

  58. Todays new polling

    S.carolina Dem aprimary

    Clinton 71%
    Sanders. 15%

    Clinton +56%

    Is there any point in sanders continuing…..?

  59. I wish someone would start a Trump is 45 site because Trump is where all my hopes are right now for this country as we have known it. Hillary has lost me and the only way I vote for her is if she runs against Bush, Rubio, Carson or Fiorina, etc.

  60. Is there any point in sanders continuing…..?

    These weak opponents are probably just there to give Hillary someone to debate and run against in the primary.

    Wish they would all drop out now so Hillary will swing to the center.

    You should start one, I am sure you would have some followers from Big Pink.

    Problem is, you wouldn’t have our wonderful Admin. 😉

  62. I agree, Shadowfax (@12:16pm). Although Trump has tapped into voters’ anger, I can’t see how he can be an effective leader insulting his way around the world. His blunt manner — along with stock insults — may be humorous now, but this kind of behavior can be very dangerous as POTUS. Anyway, a lot can happen between now and Nov 2016.

  63. Trixta
    Trump has amassed 10 billion dollars by being cunning, knowledgeable, and making the art of the deal.I think he knows what he is doing.
    He has the big stick and is beating the vipers as we speak. He is the only one, make no mistake about that, the only one that can and the important part, will, right this ship.

  64. imho…even though the Dims have gone far crazy left, they are not going to nominate a Socialist…let’s get real…

    unless Hillary is found to be in legal trouble by the FBI…Hillary is going to be the Democratic nominee…that’s not the problem

    …I think for many of us here, we are concerned with the national debate and election…just where does the Dimocratic party want to take the country…

    if, again, imho…we are lucky enough to get Trump as the republican nominee…then I believe we have a chance for a brutally honest debate on BIG ISSUES…
    not the usual bla, bla, bla…

    we will definitely have a very frank, brutal and NEEDED discussion about immigration, refugees, veterans, the middle class, health care, protecting our country, etc…

    and with Trump…he will not pussy foot around issues…he will say what alot of people are thinking, fearing and angry about…he will be a voice for them…how so many of us feel taken advantage of by our own government…as in all the American people are good for is to pay the bills for the folly and corruption of our government…

    what i like and admire about Donald is he is making the debate about BIG ISSUES…he has already exposed alot of the lies and tricks…

    Hillary is not going to do that…she is too beholden to the Democratic party and their special interests…too bad we are not in the same world as we were in 2008…pre Obama and all his debacles…but we are not…she won’t be able to go rogue…certain things will be expected of her as the leader of the Dimocratic party…

    so we will see what happens…but if Donald is one half of the debate…then everyone…democrats, republicans, special interests, PACS, etc are on notice that he will not hesitate to tell the public just what is going on…

    and he won’t waste time on trivial issues…his issues are based on how the United States will stand in the world…and his passion is in stopping and cutting all the ripping off being done to us…

    ripping off that O, Hillary, the dims and the repubs do not want anyone to talk about…much less expose or tamper with their gravy trains…

    just think of last weeks 43 MILLION DOLLAR gas station … how does this keep happening in the 21st century…who the freak is minding our store…
    not our president, not our secretary of state, not our defense dept…and just where did that 43 MILLION DOLLARS of taxpayer money actually go??

    the whole thing and the players have rigged the game…

    Donald will check our balance sheets and do things that make sense, i truly believe he will do that…that is his wheelhouse…

    right now, I have lost faith with what the Dims stand for…it breaks my heart to face it…but they are too entrenched, too controlling, too beholden…equally corrupted as are the repubs…

    we’ll see how it goes…

  65. And I’ve come to believe that the polls are just another bought and paid for political device to be manipulated. There’s a reason Gallup dropped out of Presidential polling beyond the stated one. Polls help design the needed narrative. The needed narrative right now for the Democratic party is that Hillary is unstoppable, and she can spend pennies going forward till the general…then watch out.
    The other important narrative is that Trump is losing ground to Carson. Carson is not going to beat Hillary..but Trump, well, that would be the match up the elites do not want to see.

  66. On occasion, I watched DT on his show THE APPRENTICE and was actually very impressed by the way he handled the contestants and his overall approach to business. I’d like to see this reasonable and thoughtful side of DT emerge on the campaign trail. But at this point, his insulting behavior is descending into caricature and wearing thin on me. So, I’m still for Hill. Nevertheless, as I’ve said before–and have no argument with S and others here–a GE between DT and HRC would be epic and good for the country.

  67. trixta

    Although Trump has tapped into voters’ anger, I can’t see how he can be an effective leader insulting his way around the world. His blunt manner — along with stock insults — may be humorous now, but this kind of behavior can be very dangerous as POTUS.

    ———
    I see this as Trump’s biggest flaw, it will cost him in the election. The question is, does he have enough conservatives that will go to the polls for him to win the primary and will the Repub party and some independents also go to the polls and help him win over Hillary???

    If Hillary dumps the kooks and Trump stops the personal name-calling and that would be a great choice for people to vote for in 2016.

    Personally, I think Hillary swinging to the center is much more likely than Trump changing his ego and personality. He is able to do it on his show, but his Kracken is not held down for long.

  68. Gonzotx, I couldn’t agree with you more concerning the polls. But I think Gallup got out of polling because there was so much cheating at the voting booth that it threw their election predictions off in a major way. Used to be that exit polling was spot on, but all of a sudden exit polling and election results became wildly unpredictable and thus unreliable. Go figure!

  69. gonzotx

    November 4, 2015 at 1:45 pm

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

    I agree with you Gonzotx…we saw that in the last few elections, the election in Israel, etc…

    and just last night the Democrat was predicted to win as Governor in Kentucky by a safe margin, and the Republican won by, I think, 5 points

    …definitely this ‘Carson is the front runner’ stuff is aimed at endless talking about how Donald is losing…the media conveniently only talks about the WSJ/NBC poll and none of the others that show Trump pushing 30%

    …and who would trust WSJ and/or NBC when it comes to Trump…he is there worst nightmare…

  70. the one issue I have with some who are concerned with Trump’s name calling is…

    while I agree that I also wish he would self edit at times…the people criticizing him do not seem to have any problem with everyone else, including Hillary, that take shots at him…

    I have said this before, but if we are going to be fair…Donald has been called everything in the book…all kinds of disrespectful and insulting remarks have been hauled at him by not only democrats but his own party…buffon, clown, carnival barker, his hair, just for starters…there has been a concerted effort to make him be perceived as a fool…just look at how he has been treated in the debates…

    so what does anyone expect…expecially from such a driven type A guy…he is going to fight back…

    would you rather another Romney or soft spoken guy who let O and the Dims run all over him and was too gentlemanly to respond…they made a fool out of him

    Donald Trump is not going to stand there and let people pummel him…and frankly I am glad that he is unafraid to respond…what bothers people is that he punches back harder than they expect when they throw the first punch…

    in fact, he punches back so hard sometimes people forget who threw the first punch…or insult…

    why single him out for standing up for himself when he has to intercept attacks from all angles…

  71. trixta

    I know that is what Gallop said, but I think there is more to it. They have been around forever, they would have found a way to get accurate data, I just don’t buy it.

    I think your right S…Sometimes people forget who threw the first punch because the media conveniently protects the other guy.

    That’s not saying he doesn’t get in grey areas all by himself, but he has had to put up with a lot…and yes, I know Hillary has too, but it is a two way street.

    People are less app to believe someone who has been professing Socialist views as both Hillary and Bernie have and then get an Epiphany to the center. Jesus, what do you trust? Who are these people. Sure the Media will bless them as they did fraud, fool me once…

  72. Indeed, Shadow! Same thoughts…. I think you’re right: DT’s ego is a bigger challenge to overcome for him than Hillary’s swing to the left–a move which is not unheard of for a Dem during the primary season. (Or for a Repub swinging to the right, for that matter.) DT’s prickly ego makes me nervous because it’s symptomatic of larger issues concerning anger and lack of control. For example, DT’s going ballistic on a person who makes fun of his hair tells me that his response is not only disproportionate, but vengeful. HRC, on the other hand, has thicker skin when it comes to such nonsense about looks and age. (I’m sure it hurts her feelings, but she manages to rise above it.)

    So, if DT has a more reasonable and tempered side, and I think he does, it’s time for him to bring this side out–and in a big way. Doing so, doesn’t have to detract from the issues he wants to speak about.

  73. Bevin squeaked through his primary. One article is calling his GE a near landslide.
    Republican Bevin wins Kentucky governor’s race
    snip
    Bevin, a self-funding investment manager, rode a late surge of outside support from national Republicans to defeat Democrat Jack Conway, 53 percent to 44 percent, according to The Associated Press. Bevin will become just the second Republican to inhabit the governor’s mansion in Frankfort in more than four decades.
    snip
    Bevin’s victory capped a successful night for Republicans, who picked up four of the six independently elected statewide positions despite going into Tuesday with just one GOP officeholder. Their victories included ousting state Auditor Adam Edelen, who was thought to be Democrats’ top pick to challenge GOP Sen. Rand Paul next year.
    It also marked a stunning political turnaround for Bevin, who has spent $7 million trying to win elected office between this run and his failed 2014 Senate primary against now-Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. In 2014, he lost the primary to McConnell by 25 percentage points and was mocked by fellow Republicans as an “East Coast Con Man” and a supporter of cockfighting. He entered the governor’s race just hours before the filing deadline and won a May primary against two more establishment-oriented Republicans by a mere 83 votes.

    I agree. Maybe he is presented better on his tv shows because they are taped/edited, and the debates and interviews are not edited. This is what worries me, how out of control is he on a day to day basis when he doesn’t get his way?

  75. Hillary swing to the left was not begun during her decision to run, as if there was ever any doubt, she has been left since 2008, when she joined the clownchum gang in the WH. Make no mistake, she decided to sell the middle class out the minute she accepted SOS.
    I’ll take, a hard talking, hard hitting middle class American fighter to a left wing prisoner release supporter with no requirement to put on a work application their jail time issues, as if they will be out there looking for a job..lol..Travon Martin meeting throw whitey to hell, open borders, TPP, Fraudcare, the video made them murder your son…anyday.

  76. I want Trump to be the person sitting across the table from the Mullahs, Putin and China…I want to hear him say “make my day”…

    I stole that, but I love it.
