Election Day Red Flags For #Hillary2016 – Blue Skies For @RealDonaldTrump

Election day boasts many red flags for Hillary2016. In Brooklyn they’re too busy licking frogs and seeing lovely Peter Max rainbows to notice. No one over at Hillary2016, certainly not Hillary, pays attention to the red flags as Hillary2016 heads steadily and speedily towards a cliff.

These days we’re writing less and less about Hillary and more and more about Trump. It’s a kindness towards Hillary that we do not write about her so much. These days Hillary is one frog lick short of becoming a political Timothy Leary.

The best defense of Hillary we or anyone with sanity can muster these days is “don’t worry, she’s lying, she doesn’t believe any of the crap coming out of her mouth and once she is the nominee we will see Hillary move towards sanity.” It’s not much of a persuasive defense to declare dishonesty as the selling point.

Hillary2016 hallucinates over what appears now to be her amazing supercalifragilisticexpialidocious beat down of an old socialist kook from Vermont. What a tremendous achievement! Meetings with the mothers of thugs who attack the community in order to beat down Sanders. Silly ads. Untenable positions. The cost of this sad beatdown comes with the pricetag of Hillary moving so far left her sanity is in question. Anyone impressed with this dark victory is not thinking straight. Consider this week’s election results.



In the same week that Hillary2016 released a silly gun control ad designed to attack Bernie Sanders pro-gun record (Hillary’s ad dishonestly inflates gun crime numbers by adding suicides) with proposals that will have zero effect on crimes the proposals are aimed against we can see how swing state Virginia reacts to such foolishness:

Bloomberg, McAuliffe Fail to Take Virginia Senate

Virginia Republicans look set to hold onto their Senate majority in the Old Dominion, amid aggressive campaigning by Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

It is a big defeat for McAuliffe, a close ally for Hillary Clinton, and a big defeat for New York billionaire Mike Bloomberg, who donated heavily to Democrats in the hope of winning the Virginia electoral fights on a promise of more gun-control. [snip]

McAuliffe, with considerable help from Bloomberg, bet his political capital on Democrats winning the upper Chamber. But he seems to have fallen far short. [snip]

Bloomberg was hoping to capitalize on the tragic shooting of two Virginia TV reporters by a disgruntled newsman earlier this Summer. He pumped millions into the race for two critical state Senate seats. As a result, both Democrats were able to dramatically outspend their Republican rivals.

Bloomberg and his SuperPAC, Everytown for Gun Safety, hoped to show that Democrats could win on the issue of gun control. Also, Gov. McAuliffe had made enacting new restrictions on gun ownership a centerpiece of his campaigning for Democrats around the state.

McAuliffe also campaigned aggressively for expanding Medicaid through ObamaCare and implementing universal preschool. All three issues have been top priorities for McAuliffe’s tenure as governor. Barred from running for reelection, McAuliffe will now face a united Republican legislature for his final two years in office.

His policy agenda, and Bloomberg’s push for gun control, are dead in Richmond. McAuliffe’s inability to deliver the closely divided Senate for Democrats also raises questions of how effective he can be for Hillary Clinton next year. In many ways, this legislative election turned on issues central to her campaign.

There are so many red flags in this Virginia election an ambitious bull would need to call for help. Republicans won in the suburbs. There’s a weak and weakened McAuliffe supporting Hillary. Gun control is a losing issue for Democrats in elections. And this election “turned on issues central to” Hillary’s campaign. Stop licking frogs Hillary!

The DailyKooks and the left looked to Virginia for victory. The kooks lost. McAuliffe lost. Gun control lost. Hillary lost. The ignored red flags are not just in Virginia.

Once again we see the polls grossly misunderestimating the support of an anti-Obama Republican running against an Obama Democrat. In Kentucky once again that is what happened as an anti-ObamaCare candidate in what was once touted as the best ObamaCare state exchange (since collapsed) was said to be a sure loser only to win on election day:

Republican Bevin wins Kentucky governor’s race

Republican Matt Bevin easily won Kentucky’s governorship on Tuesday as the GOP made major inroads in a state that had stubbornly resisted the party at the state level even as it voted reliably Republican in federal contests in recent years.

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.

Polls prior to the vote showed a close race, with most surveys giving Conway, the state’s sitting attorney general, a slight advantage.

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. [snip]

Bevin’s win throws into doubt the future of KyNect, the state’s Obamacare exchange, and Medicaid expansion in the state. It also means that an expansion of early childhood education — something Conway had made a priority — is unlikely in the near future.

Bevin won his primary election with only an 83 vote margin. He was a sure loser in the general election. He attacked ObamaCare at every turn. Bevin was not the early childhood education candidate. And he won. Red flags. The red flags are flying:

The Republican gains continue two distressing Obama-era trends for Democrats. The party will now hold just 17 governorships, down from 29 in 2008. Only one of those governors — Virginia’s Terry McAuliffe — hails from the South. [snip]

The Democratic Governors Association suggested that Conway was not to blame for the loss, chalking it up to an outsider-friendly environment the group dubbed “Trump-mania.”

“Attorney General Jack Conway ran a strong campaign focused on the issues that matter to Kentuckians: good schools, good-paying jobs and economic opportunity,” DGA Executive Director Elisabeth Pearson said. “Unfortunately, he ran into the unexpected headwinds of Trump-mania, losing to an outsider candidate in the Year of the Outsider.

Trumpmania! An outsider red flag that should stop the frog licking. Democrats outspent Republicans $8.75 million to $5.5 million and still the Republicans won. Kentucky has a $1,000 contribution limit but still Republicans won. How? Republican Bevin ads said “That’s because Conway is a career politician who supports Obama’s agenda.”

Another Democrat Governor bites the dust as a Republican Governor rises. There are even more red flags for Hillary2016 in Kentucky:

The Democratic gloom spread down-ballot as well. Edelen, who was widely expected to run for Senate against Paul next year if he won reelection, was defeated by GOP state Rep. Mike Harmon, 52 percent to 48 percent.

TrumpMania brought in the outsiders:

Matt Bevin’s 53 percent to 44 percent victory tonight marks only the second time in 48 years that Republicans have won the Kentucky governor’s race. But Republicans also made history in another way. Bevin’s lieutenant governor running-mate, Jenean Hampton, is now the first African American elected to statewide office ever in the state’s history.

Both Bevin and Hampton are Tea Party activists who have never held elective office. Hampton’s path certainly represents triumph over adversity. Born in Detroit, the 57-year-old Hampton and her three sisters were raised by a single mom who lacked a high school education and couldn’t afford a television or a car. But Hampton was determined to better herself. She graduated with a degree in industrial engineering and worked for five years in the automobile industry to pay off her college loans. She then joined the Air Force, retiring as a Captain. She earned an MBA from the University of Rochester, moved to Kentucky and became a plant manager in a corrugated packaging plant. Then she lost her job in 2012.

She used her free time to start a career in politics and becoming active in the Tea Party.

Carson, Mia Love, Jenean Hampton, are not straws in the wind. They are red flags unfurled for any Democrat who thinks the winds of change are not blowing.

Then there is Trumpmania.

In San Francisco, freakin’ San Francisco, Trumpmania ruled:

San Francisco sheriff known for ‘sanctuary city’ defense loses re-election bid

After the death of Kate Steinle at the hands of an illegal immigrant with a long criminal record and a revolving door history of border crossings Donald Trump pounced. Trump called attention to the San Francisco sheriff and sanctuary cities and now Trumpmania has another scalp. It’s a red flag unfurled in Diablo winds.

Also in San Francisco the private company AirBnB beat back pro government activists and tax advocates who wanted to block the internet company. AirBnB was the scapegoat for a housing crisis rooted more in California big government than big business.

In Houston Texas a pro gay equal rights ordinance failed to pass. In Ohio a marijuana monopoly ballot initiative also failed. These failures should raise red flags for anyone who thinks the kook left is the future and therefore frog licking is a warranted pastime. Of course the argument can be made that it is an off year election and the results will be different in a general election year… but we think these are red flags of backlash a sensible candidate should not ignore.

Hillary2016 should see the flapping red flags. For Donald J. Trump, it’s not red flags but blue skies.

Exclusive Poll: Trump dominates among Florida voters

ORLANDO — Donald Trump is dominating in our exclusive Florida Decides presidential poll released Tuesday, both among his fellow Republican candidates and likely Democratic challengers in a head-to-head general election.

Here are some of the main highlights of the Bay News 9 / News 13 Florida Decides Poll, conducted via telephone from Wednesday, Oct. 28 through Sunday, Nov. 1.

Trump tops Ben Carson and Marco Rubio 2:1 in a GOP primary
Former Gov. Jeb Bush runs 5th among the top 8 GOP candidates
Hillary Clinton dispatches Bernie Sanders 3:1 in a Democratic primary
Florida would go red if Trump or Carson face Clinton in general election

The poll found 37 percent of Floridians likely to vote in the Republican primary on March 15 said they would vote for Trump if the primary were held today

Trump had a large, 20 percent lead over his closest runner-up, Ben Carson, who got 17 percent support from likely Republican voters. Not far behind Carson was Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, with 16 percent.

If Trump beats Rubio and Bush in Florida the dull duo will have no argument to make for their nomination. But, but, Latinos…. Latinos won’t vote for Trump, will they?:

Donald Trump could win over Hispanics who fear job competition from illegal immigrants

To hear political pundits tell it, Donald Trump has little chance to attract enough Hispanic voters to win the presidency in 2016 because of his plans to build a border wall and deport all illegal immigrants in America. Some pollsters and activists who have whipped up past Hispanic support for Republicans, however, see it differently.

They think Mr. Trump’s lasering in on the economy and his perceived competence in creating jobs will appeal to the one segment of Hispanics that matters most in elections: those who work and tend to vote. That’s because those voters fear illegal immigrants will compete for their jobs under the new Obama amnesty.

“This stuff you read about how Hispanics are going to run away from Trump in droves is a Northeastern myth,” said longtime presidential campaign adviser Mark Sanders.

“Most Hispanics here in East Texas are here legally, they vote, and they are hard-line opponents of illegal immigration,” said Mr. Sanders, a top adviser in Democrat Tony Sanchez’s 2002 campaign to unseat then-Gov. Rick Perry. “The only one they want is Trump — not Hillary, not Bernie. That’s the conundrum for Democrats.

Mr. Sanders says Hispanics in East Texas “come here from rural backgrounds, from the lower end of the social and economic ladder. Most of their kids go to community colleges because it’s all their families can afford, and then go directly into the military. They have hard-core patriotism — just what Trump plays into,” Mr. Sanders added.

Whether Mr. Trump is saying he loves Hispanics or vowing to deport all 11 million or so illegal immigrants, it’s equally music to the ears of many Hispanic voters.

I don’t care if he likes me or not as a Hispanic or Latino, as long he creates the jobs he promised,” said Carlo Maffatt, a Mexican immigrant who lives in Las Vegas and who did political liaison work in the Hispanic community for Republicans during the 2012 presidential election. “He is never going to take me out for a beer, so it doesn’t matter whether I like him or not either.

“The job of the president of the United Stats is to create jobs, not to be the friend of every American,” Mr. Maffatt said.

Mr. Maffatt said recent Hispanic immigrants have plenty of reason to favor Mr. Trump: They don’t want new immigrants, especially illegal immigrants, competing for “a job for whatever anyone will give them.”

Fear of telling the truth to pollsters will prevent Trump’s Latino support from appearing in polls. Neil Newhouse who polls for Jeb Bush’s SuperPac believes that to be the case.

For Donald J. Trump it’s blue skies. It’s not just the unwavering support from so many as reflected in polls compared to the soft, likely to move support, for other candidates such as Ben Carson. It’s not even the well attended spectacular rallies. The best indication of blue skies for Trump are the election results this week.

The blue skies for Trump are for Hillary2016 blocked by the red flags hoist by the winds of change. It’s time for Hillary2016 to stop the frog licks and see the red flags blowing in the wind.

  1. Crazy Video: Angelic li’l moppets swear like sailors at Trump over immigration.

    It’s part of a coordinated attempt to stop Trump’s appearance on Saturday Night Live this Saturday. But this video will only help Trump by drawing attention to his appearance in which he will comically charm the public.

    It’s a disgusting video with kids cursing obsenities against Trump. This does not help Latinos it hurts good and decent Latinos. The video exploits Latinos and kids. Watch at your own peril.



  2. The best defense of Hillary we or anyone with sanity can muster these days is “don’t worry, she’s lying, she doesn’t believe any of the crap coming out of her mouth and once she is the nominee we will see Hillary move towards sanity.” It’s not much of a persuasive defense to declare dishonesty as the selling point.
    ********************

    Yes…thank you…

    You always get straight to the point in the most obvious and entertaining way…
    I don’t know the future, I can’t read tea leaves, Trump may turn out to be a disaster, but for now, he is the only one truly singing my song. I’m going to take a chance on Trump because I can’t trust Hillary…I just can’t.
    It’s like abusive relationship with Hillary and I am at peace, sad, because she could have not only been a contender, but my President that I was going to be so proud of….

    —————-

    That video makes me sick. It is like kiddie-porn. Disgusting. What kind of people are these? I want them out of my country.

  4. To top it off, Latino is an ethnicity, not a race. Playing the race card is infringing on people who are really of minority races.

    My daughter came up with that racist crap over my illegal immigrant views and I was shocked that she could have gotten so propagandized.

  5. Very disgusting kid video! Ironically, I think Trump will get a good chunk of the Hispanic/Latino vote…as much, perhaps, as GWB.

    As you say, Admin, HRC will most likely lose the GE. But at a minimum, I still want Hillary to have the Dem nomination because of what happened in 2008 (who else is there, really?). (And her candidacy as a woman still has some value for me.) My support for her as of Nov 2015 may be “crazy,” but I still see a lot of potential there, so no I’m not rooting for “dishonesty.”

    If the 2016 GE is between her and Trump, I think the country will benefit from that debate. It’ll be interesting to see him evolve as a candidate (and I hope he does!) and on his positions during the general. Will he go further to the right or stick to the middle? Can he smooth out his rough edges? Sustain his honesty? Survive his own Party? Who knows? I’m not completely sold on him, but anyone other than BO or Bush will be fine by me.

    And for all those who are now Trumpsters, more power to you because if he wins, that victory will surely be sweet, after all these years! As for me, I don’t want to get so wrapped up in a presidential candidate to be, yet again, disappointed.

  6. “And for all those who are now Trumpsters, more power to you because if he wins, that victory will surely be sweet, after all these years!”

    Thank you,

  7. At this point, I don’t know if Hillary will change or Trump will deliver. But I do know that I want Hillary to win the nomination so that she can have more power to do what she wants and then win GE so she can kick Obama’s ass. I do want Trump to win the GoP nomination because I don’t like any of the other candidates. Neither party establishment wants either of them. I have watched Apprentice from when it started and more recently Celebrity Apprentice this past year. He is pretty cool in it and he comes across as a sane business man with a kind heart. I don’t know why we don’t see that more often.
    {I think trixta @8:22 got it}

  8. Pm

    Hillary has already changed, you just don’t like what you see and hear.
    What you see is what you get, Obama on Steroids.

    She gets more out of touch everyday. Trayvon Martin, Browns Family. ..really?

  9. “Neither party establishment wants either of them.”
    **************************

    So true, pm317. Having both HRC and DT as the nominees for their respective parties would be a double middle-finger salute to both parties–and that makes me smile.

    More observation about DT, I’ve never heard former show participants speak badly of him. They all seem to have respect and admiration for him — even after being fired on national TV. Also, his children appear to be industrious and level-headed adults, so he and his ex have done a great job on that front.

    Nov 2016 seems so far away…. Hope we still have a country a year from now.

  10. gonzotx, you don’t like Hillary, yeah, we get it. You are putting all your eggs in the Trump basket without knowing if he can deliver. I am putting some of my eggs in Hillary’s basket hoping she gets stronger once she wins the nomination and the presidency that with all the power of the bully pulpit she earns she can kick Obama and his minions to the curb. It will be a one term presidency. She can do what she wants and Obama and his cronies will be run out of this town, never to be seen again. Got it?

  11. Hillary is going to get the Democratic nomination…barring some unlikely legal sabatoge…

    I don’t think Trump’s rough edges are the issue…

    in the national election…

    it will come down to what the policies are that each candidate is selling…offering…promising…

    that is where the ‘rubber will meet the road’…at that point the “personalities” are almost irrelevant…ie, if you do not support more and more illegal immigration and Hillary is pushing it…are you going to continue your support because you love/like Hillary or are you going to look at the bigger picture of what that means to our country, to legal immigrants, to the middle class, to our economy, etc…

    particularly if her opponent supports your viewpoint…

    thanks again to Admin for being an honest broker…this place has always been a place to speak truth to power…it is inspiring that we can all speak our minds with our eyes wide open…and be unafraid to acknowledge when the truth hurts and does not match up with our wishes, dreams and hopes…

  12. S, we will see what happens. But if Hillary does not win the presidency, Obama and his cronies will run the Dem party forever. Kiss goodbye to any kind of fair and corruption-free elections (and everything else) for this country. Obama effect has to be neutralized once he leaves office. That can only happen with at least an equal counter-force within the party and only Clintons have it. This is also a way to get the country back. Of course, all of this hinges on the assumption that Hillary understands the severity of it and will deliver.

  13. Hi trixta…

    even though Donald brags alot…he rarely even mentions in passing all he has done to help people (maybe later down the road some of those people will appear on their own and tell their stories)

    Donald Trump, among the people that know him, is known for having an enormous heart…and has helped many untold people and families

    besides all those he has personally helped, he has given millions of dollars to many charities…

    Donald Trump is rough around some edges, but he is a multi faceted person who has been very successful on a big worldwide stage as well as never losing the human touch he grew up with in Queens, NY…

    I believe that “Queens persona” is what attracts so many people to him…he sounds like a lot of our fathers…blunt, plain spoken and to the point and cuts thru the BS…

    he is a lot more than a guy who says things that are “politically incorrect” in fact, in the rarer moments when you see him speak without the jokes and one liners and in a more serious vein he can be very poignant…he is 69…he has a different vantage point than many of those younger than he…

    he has been fighting in that snake pit in NY and with foreign investors and leaders from all over the world …and coming out a survivor…and winner

    and the best part is he does not owe anyone anything…

    even though some hold out hopes that Hillary will be able to do whatever she wants, she won’t be able to…she will ‘owe’ alot of people based on “support” they gave her in millions with many expectations regarding the policies she promised…that is sadly how the political game is played…

    we may have a rare opportunity to break that cycle and really change things…

    I respect your comments…we are all trying to make sense of what is going on…

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

    pm317…

    If Hillary were running on her own terms and as her own woman that might be easier to attain…in other words, if she had come out the gate as the woman many of us believed in and were waiting so long for…

    but she is going out of her way to run as an Obama 3rd term but only moreso…to honor and carry on his “legacy” while taking it further

    (honestly when I hear her say that I feel sick)

    the sad truth is Obama is leaving the Democratic party decimated and weak…with no bench, Obama has lost many of the governors and state officials…replaced with far left crazies with selfish demands that put many others at risk…

    Hillary is about all they have left…and if she continues on the path she is on, Hillary may become his most high profile casualty…

    I do not worry about Hillary’s future…if she does not become President…she will be free to continue to do great things…and, if she chooses, she will be able to do them her way…

    alot of this is about what Hillary chooses to do…

  15. 100% spot on as usual administrator. Sorry I missed the last few days as my 86 year old Mom fell and fractured her hip. If you ever want to know what living hell is spend 4 days in a hospital and the next 4-6 weeks in a rehab center. I can’t even imagine how people without resources can survive these type of things.

  16. pm317 – certainly I don’t know the future any more than anyone else…. but I don’t think O will always rule the country – the dems may get their own Trump one day. On the other hand, IMO there is no evidence that Hillary will save the party from the O-effect. I loved her 2007-2008 for what she stood for (although I didn’t know at that time that she was for amnesty even back then). For the last 7 years, she HAS been an obot, and still is. In my heart and head, I honestly don’t know why I should trust 1-1.5 years of promises vs 7 years of actions, should she flip again to the middle for the general.

    Should it end up being Hillary2008 vs Trump, it will basically IMO be two centrists against each other, but with one with a MANY year history of supporting amnesty. That’s gonna kill her. The potential issue for Trump is his presentation. Certainly he has shown (his tv show apparently – I never saw it – and in interviews and more now in debates) that he has a calm, reasoned self. I think what I’m reading here is that people are aware of that, but they’re worried about his “in the moment” self, when facing incoming slights. Personally, I’ve noticed he is evolving, and I’ve seen people more well-paid than I comment the same. Plus, people have written many times that his initial “counterstrike” is very forceful – and the other person tends to back off. Although perhaps it IS part immature reaction, I suspect that this is at least to a LARGE part intentional and calculated. I notice he does not grind someone into the ground afterwards… he moves on. I think were his reaction mostly emotional insecurity, he would continue to ground and pound the person on an ongoing basis – so I suspect the large initial reaction is mostly purposeful.

    And the path I took since the calamity of 2008 led me to realize (YMMV) that “party” was just meant to be a shorthand for politicians whose beliefs matched ours could be found. IMO, shame on all of us (the general populace) for becoming lazy and just letting party affiliation guide our choices instead of looking at all candidates ourselves, across the board. I mean, we all (both parties) teach our kids to always vote the party, rather than to look at all individual candidates. I say to myself, who exactly does that benefit? I think the answer is simply each party.

    However, first of all, party affiliation hasn’t guaranteed anything for a long time. Second of all, what is important is what the candidate proposes to do, regardless of party. “Party” is a label, nothing more. But IMO what they “intend to do” has to be measured very carefully against their past records. IMO, that is what is most illustrative, most truthful.

    There have been plenty of occasions when Hillary did or supported things that I don’t believe Hillary2008 would have. But she did. The only options I can see are (1) party over country, (2) Hillary over country (thinking it preserved her 2016 chances), or maybe (3) blackmail.

    So for me, “party” can just go to heck. I want an individual (and their carefully constructed team) who will support at least most of the things I do. And as concerned about the country as I was in 2008, I am a million times more now in wake of Obama (and those who believe as he does). Right now and for the last seven years, Hillary has been an obot, supporting the man destroying the country, the man who cheated and slandered her 8 ways to Monday. I honestly don’t know how I can believe her, should she opportunely go all the way back to the center.

    Especially since she can easily beat all primary challengers – no way Sanders could win more than a few primaries, and that one guy is synonymous with Baltimore – big fail, and WHO are the others??? So IMO she did not need to hang by her fingernails from the left edge of the world in the first place.

    But she did. An obot for the last 7 years. It breaks my heart, but I don’t see how I can trust her again. She is, after all, the ultimate politicians. I have to go with actions over words. As someone once put so well (S?), I can still have Hillary2008 in my heart without her being president.

    This isn’t to say someone else can’t hope she will flip back and then choose to trust her. I was just trying to explain my thinking (and it got kind of long, sorry!).

  17. You can see videos from the last 20-30 years of Trump espousing the same beliefs he has now. On the other hand, Hillary has flopped around, with good people hoping she will flip again. It affects the trust issue for me….

  18. Admin: I know it is difficult for some on this blog to understand the reasons why you have written so much about Trump. I think it is because he is focused on the same coalition and following the same strategies you have advocated to Hillary early and often, yet she has rejected them and opted for the Obama democratic and the Obama strategy. In 2008, she pursued a general election strategy in a rigged primary, whereas this time she will be forced to pursue a primary strategy in the general election. If Obama had produced governing results acceptable the electorate at large, then she could say she is merely embracing what worked and they would throw garlands her way. But his governing record has been one of strategic and tactical failure, and the evidence is too real, tangible and measurable to be papered over with fancy words and divide and conquer strategies. Plus, that fucking Obama does not want her to win, and commandeer a legacy which he alone sees as a grand success..

  19. In other words, Trumps success VALIDATES the strategy you proposed to Hillary as the strategy that would get her in the White House. The old bromide left in the primary and center in the general election has no application here, because the democart party has tossed out the Roosevelt coalition, and now consists of the have nots, and those who are looking to loot the middle class. In order to move to the center she would have to repudiate Obama and what she stood for in the recently concluded primary.

  20. lorac, S, I am purely approaching this election from the point of view of who can best prevent Obama and his cronies from harming the country permanently. I don’t know what Hillary is doing now and why she is doing what she is doing. But the hope is that she may do something about curbing Obama once she gets the bully pulpit just by virtue of being there. Trump has no reason to curb Obama effect and in fact, he may even strengthen him/it. Other than this, I really have no interest in Hillary nor do I have any in Trump.

    ___________

    Thank you pm317 ! Hell yeah we get it, and have to hear it every time any positive remark is made – even a remark as benign and “I’m glad Hillary is doing well in Dim Polls.”

    Some of my eggs are going into Hillary’s basket too. Altho i don’t like the fact that she’s leaning too far to the left, If it turns out she is lying to get Obama-Dims and kooks on her side, with plans to move to the center once that mission is accomplished, imo no one deserves to be lied to by Hillary more. Not after they stole the nomination from her in 2008.

    Voters who will vote only for a candidate who has never lied may as well not bother going to the polls. I doubt it’s possible to find a political candidate who doesn’t lie. They promise stuff they know they can’t deliver, they spin their positions to appeal to as broad an ideological range as possible.

  22. believe that “Queens persona” is what attracts so many people to him…he sounds like a lot of our fathers…blunt, plain spoken and to the point and cuts thru the BS…

    Yes. Brooklyn parents here 🙂

    he has been fighting in that snake pit in NY and with foreign investors and leaders from all over the world …and coming out a survivor…and winner

    IMO, it stands to reason that if his “style” (we don’t know how he is behind closed doors in his negotiations) was a detriment, he wouldn’t have been successful. And as you mentioned, a lot of his work has been with powerful people in other countries.

    even though some hold out hopes that Hillary will be able to do whatever she wants, she won’t be able to…she will ‘owe’ alot of people based on “support” they gave her in millions with many expectations regarding the policies she promised…that is sadly how the political game is played…

    we may have a rare opportunity to break that cycle and really change things…

    Agree x 1 million. She will owe her donors, and this IS a rare opportunity to have a non-owned player.

    I respect your comments…we are all trying to make sense of what is going on…

    Agree x 2 million.

  23. I am disappointed that I can’t convey the fear I feel about Obama’s lingering effect on the country even after he leaves. None of you ‘Trumpsters’ (sorry, I say it endearingly though) have even addressed that. I would like for some of you to make a case how President Trump will negate Obama effect (within the country and the Dem party) — and, now don’t jump to ‘party is nothing’ line because it is not nothing and it rules at least half of the country. I am not an ideologue. If your argument is persuasive, I will seriously consider it.

    100% spot on as usual administrator. Sorry I missed the last few days as my 86 year old Mom fell and fractured her hip. If you ever want to know what living hell is spend 4 days in a hospital and the next 4-6 weeks in a rehab center. I can’t even imagine how people without resources can survive these type of things.
    ————–
    I went through the same thing with my mom at the same age. That is a fairly common occurrence with of women of that age. What happened with mom is after the fall, the operation, and the rehab, she experienced bouts of dementia which is often the case. The doctor are not sure why this happens, but the correlation is so significant, that causation is deduced. A client restores exotic cars and has a cult following is being attacked by a ruthless competitor on his website. The remedy at law is inadequate, and injunctive relief is hard to obtain. So we are setting up a website of our own showing through true stories what the competitor is doing to its customers, caption to read ABC company, where cars go to rust, and dreams go to die–my slogan. In his day, the great Los Angeles trial lawyer Earl Rogers (who was the inspiration for the character Perry Mason) worried that the legal profession is being eroded by non lawyers practicing law, primarily real estate agents, in our day, that threat comes from high tech people who as we say in Seattle are dead from the neck down. A system of redress as costly and dilatory as ours remind one of the old saying justice delayed is justice denied.

  25. Trump has no reason to curb Obama effect and in fact, he may even strengthen him/it

    pm317 – I imagine it’s true, his purpose is not to cleanse the dem party, but I don’t think his purpose is to cleanse the repub party either. I think he wants to cleanse EVERYthing, he wants a no-nonsense, get it done, plain-speaking, America-first government. To me, he seems to be about America, not about a party. He had to pick one to run, but I don’t think he can really be nailed down to either one. Should he inspire future politicians (to any office, from either party) to adopt these basic (party-free) principles, I believe it will help future America, as well as any candidate to either party. The people are responding to his honest speaking and America-loving beliefs – how often does a candidate get all the crossovers* he does? It’s very rare. I think he is creating a long overdue new zeitgeist for our politics and our country.

    *I believe that Hillary2008 could have done that (although part of that was a lot of republican women wanting to vote for a woman). But IMO Hillary2008 can never return, even if she goes the long distance back to center, because of Hillary 2008 through 2016. Most candidates tack to the wing side – but she actually has lived it for 7 years before running in the primary on it – going back to center would be waaaaay further and less believable than other candidates do in other elections…..

    But – I understand, you’re more invested in the party getting cleaned up, while I have evolved to not care about parties anymore, so we’re going to see this differently 🙂

  26. jbstones fan – sending you good thoughts. The important thing is, she was getting some rehab (probably at a nursing home? An actual “rehab” facility is generally for (usually younger) people who can do 3 hrs/day of PT, although nursing homes are often informally referred to as “rehab”). Probably the most important thing is for her to keep working on mobility, which of course is harder the older we get. But it’s the most important thing. So even though recovering from a broken hip, especially an older person, is tough for all, that physical therapy work is best in the long run, and it sounds like she has gone through the process. Hang in there!

  27. Free
    I just try to point out what is obvious, at least to me. You have your opinion, and it appears you are still holding on for a miracle, I have moved on. When people post their happiness at Hillary doing well, doing well by standing for everything I abhor, well, I’m only human.
    I know this started as a HILLARY site…obviously,.. but I am simple, it’s about the person for me, at least since 5/31/2008. Honesty is the must important character trait someone can have for me. And getting sh#t, done of course. Hillary broke that covenant, you can’t put it back together.
    Maybe read Admins post again, she/he actually basically says the same things I have been saying, sometimes even harsher…guess it’s easier to project onto others.
    Admin opened my eyes, Wbb and others added their great insight..yes many have left, I think they became so disillusioned with Hillary, well that’s just a supposition …so I will stay and I will comment till the end…election 2016. If Trump messes up, gets screwed, whatever, and the elites win. ..then I am done..so just pass on by, it doesn’t bother me one bit.

  28. But – I understand, you’re more invested in the party getting cleaned up, while I have evolved to not care about parties anymore, so we’re going to see this differently 🙂

    Wrong! I don’t care about either party and certainly not the Dem party. I gave up my Dem registration on May 31, 2008 and have never looked back. What I am thinking and saying is all about Obama and his minions corrupting this country further and holding it back even after he leaves and they will do that and do that through the party, the only vehicle they will have if Trump wins but if Hillary wins they have to compete for the party and there is a chance that they and their influence on the country will be weakened. I will say it a million times and then may be it will make some impact on someone.

  29. I am disappointed that I can’t convey the fear I feel about Obama’s lingering effect on the country even after he leaves.

    pm317 – you typed your sadness that no one is addressing how Trump can save the party and the country from Obama. I was typing a comment while you were posting yours, but perhaps one of my more recent comment addresses it to some extent.

    But, I think, too, I’m not as worried about that as you are. I certainly agree as much as you that his effect is horrendous and must be ended. But from what I see and hear, most dems aren’t into Obama, not for awhile. I think *most* people are aware he is ruining the country. I think all that’s left are idealogues and the “give me free stuff” crowd (in terms of O support). If Trump is elected, I believe he will usher back in the historical “work hard” American tenet. That in itself (and his policies rewarding work not generational welfare) will eliminate O and any coattails. Also Trump’s love of America, which resonates with most, will destroy the O faction with their path to globalism and worldwide poverty ruled by an international elite.

    I am not disrespecting the path you have chosen (at this point, any of us could change in the next year, who knows what may happen in the bigger world and political stage). But in this moment, I have to say that I suspect that Hillary is the greater chance to continue O’s policies. Not just because of whom owns her (donations), but because she’ll have her eye on 2020, and won’t want to upset whatever coalition she gets to vote her into office in 2016 (well, of course, that includes the donors as well).

    ——————————
    I’m sorry, pm317 – I misunderstood.

    In my defense, I’m trying to eat, keep a cat from taking a shortcut over the laptop to either sit on my lap or eat my fake bacon (or maybe the lap was just a tricky means to the fake bacon goal!), I’m responding to texts and emails on the phone, and watching the I love Raymond show, and…. same as everyone else, I imagine, but they’re better multitaskers than I (and they’re probably eating real bacon lol). So some mistakes get through, maybe I can get people to see mistakes as part of my intriguing, magical, most wonderful personality! 🙂 Ok, but I can hope lol

    Anyway – could you explain how you feel Obama-effect could continue to destroy our country after he is gone? That would help me, at least, make an effort that you feel actually answers your concerns. I think if you explain with specifics, perhaps I can answer with specifics…. Might that help the discussion?

  31. Thanks, S (@ 10:56pm). Even though some of us may disagree, I still appreciate the insightful commentary by all and Admin. If things go Trump’s way, I too hope his presidency will bring a change for the better. We shall see….

    Free (@ 11:53 pm), I had to chuckle at your comment [below) because there’s a lot of truth to it:

    “Altho i don’t like the fact that she’s leaning too far to the left, If it turns out she is lying to get Obama-Dims and kooks on her side, with plans to move to the center once that mission is accomplished, imo no one deserves to be lied to by Hillary more.

  32. PM317, you make a good point about “negating the Obama effect” once and for all. It will have to come from Clinton and within the party. Even out of office, I think Obama/his minions will try to keep control of the Dems and call the shots, especially if Clinton loses the GE.

  33. trixta – not to be contrary! 🙂 But IMO Hillary is not likely to sweep the party free of obots. For me, it boils down to one thing. She has been an obot since 2008, she is owned by obots, and make no mistake, she will have her eyes on 2020. In 2008 she had her eyes on 2016 for 7 years, and did what she felt most likely to elect her – which was to be an obot. If she wins in 2016, why would it be any different? She’ll be working towards 2020.

    Look at Trump. Most republicans started out laughing at him, not taking him seriously, but as they started hearing what he has done in his life, what he plans to do as president, the policy papers he keeps posting – they have come to his side, as well as have many dems and indys. Look around the web – lots and lots of people on dem websites saying they are changing their registration to republican so they can get him into the general – nothing to do with Hillary, they just want to make sure he gets to general so he can win there.

    And I think it is driven by the people finding resonance in Trump, even in the beginning when the elite laughed. But the people love him. If he is elected, as I said further above, I believe he will instititute a new zeitgeist. If the dem party wants to run against him in 2020 by proposing more O-era philosophy, ever more freebies, trying to push amnesty again – they won’t get voted in. And the elite who were the architects of those losing campaigns will be out of work. A couple times of that and parties change to better reflect the people out there.

    So, personally, because I feel Trump is not a republican party person, his American philosophies will infect the populace (just as they have historically), and dems won’t need to be wiped out – they will either implode through successive losses, or they will work to catch up to the New-old American ideals. We’re not going to be France, anymore, we’re going to be America again. We’re saying a huge goodbye the the globalist elites (and Hillary may be one of them, given her track record of the last 7 years).

    So…. I think in a roundabout way, it is Trump who can start the process to save the dem party, whatever that means. I mean, really, if Trump wins 1-2 elections – our country will have a new overarching “theme” (which again, harkens to our not so distant ago, historical tenets) supported by Americans. Anyway, if he wins and captures the country’s attention and beliefs – others like him will emerge, common-sense “patriots” if you will, to support the new zeitgeist. If the parties don’t want to become obsolete (well, I would argue that they already are), they will have to catch on to a star to become more in line with the populace and the new zeitgeist.

    Even in her most “right” ward statements in her career (I would call them “American”, not rightwing), she is still not as clear and definitive as Trump has been about how to right the country. Basically, he wants to fix the country by giving people a hand-up, teach them to fish themselves (which, IMO, is how it should be). Hillary, on the other hand, has spent 7 years promising to hand OUT the fishes to everyone. THAT is part of Obama’s plan to get us on the globalism bus.

    I firmly believe she didn’t need to be Obama’s lap dog in these last 7 years, and I don’t believe she needs to run as Obama III on steroids for the primary. But yet, she chooses to. Either she is a believer, and/or she is owned. The latter won’t change in any Hillary administration. They bought her for what she can do for them in the White House, not just for the primary – the primary is just a means to the end. So the debt only comes due once she is in the White House. She obeyed her masters during 4 years of SOS and during this primary campaign. Why would she disobey them as president which is what all the donations were FOR? And on her part, she needs to be positioning herself for 2020. This all very much worries me about Hillary winning.

    And someone (can’t remember who) said that (not exact words) that lies don’t matter, because they all lie. I don’t think it’s about that. I think it’s about one candidate who has held the same basic beliefs about life and work and the country for decades vs another candidate who flops around like the fish she wants to give people to enable their suckky lives….

  34. We do think it is imperative that Hillary get the party nomination. That’s because there is no one else of sufficient clout that provides a potential counterpoint against Obama. Perhaps Hillary is politically lost and deranged, we understand that. But if politics do not make her oppose Obama perhaps personality will. The Clintons and the Obamas cannot stand each other – if politics does not drive them apart we hold a thin reed of hope that personality will.

    Here’s another article published on Thursday along the lines of what we wrote yesterday:

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2015/11/05/hillary_and_the_lefts_impenetrable_bubble__128639.html

    On Tuesday, Kentucky voters stunned the chattering classes by electing conservative Republican businessman Matt Bevin to be their next governor. While most polls had Democrat Jack Conway pegged to win the race, reality begged to differ: Bevin earned 53 percent of the vote, leaving his opponent with a mere 44 percent. These days, a GOP governor in Kentucky is a relative rarity; Bevin will be just the second Republican to take office in last 40 years.

    Appearing on MSNBC, Tom Brokaw wondered aloud if Bevin’s victory could spell “terror” for Democrats on a national level. He cited political analyst Charles Cook, who noted that a Bevin win could be “radioactive for the Democrats because it’s a rejection, again, of Obama and what the Democrats are standing for at this point.” [snip]

    Her husband may have been long hailed for his canny triangulation through the wilds of American politics, but Hillary, at least for now, is casting her bets with the same leftist politics that rocketed fringe candidate Bevin to victory.

    It is thus, in a country with record sales of guns for six months in a row, and with the NRA’s approval at a record 58 percent, that Hillary Clinton has made gun control a centerpiece of her campaign. It is thus, after Houston voters resoundingly rejected a measure that would allow men with a “female gender identity” to use women’s public restrooms, and vice versa—the diverse city, which has also cheerfully elected a lesbian mayor for three terms, voted it down by around 62 percent—that Hillary Clinton vows to continue to push for similar laws.

    “This,” she told her 4.62 million Twitter followers, referring to transgender identity activism, “is a reminder of the work still left to do.”

    Not at the top of the priority list of most Americans, I’d hazard a guess. Is it any wonder that while national Democrats lurch left, the GOP cleans up at the local level? After Tuesday’s votes, Republicans have “total control of 24 states,” holding both legislative and gubernatorial leadership, as Reid Wilson reported in the Washington Post. Out of 50 states, 33 now have Republican governors; out of 98 state legislatures, 67 now belong to the GOP.

    Republicans could screw things up: They have a particular talent for doing just that. But for all the doom and gloom on the GOP side of the political aisle, it’s occasionally helpful to look at the hard-core left. It’s a gleaming sea of heads encased in bubble helmets, each celebrating top-down, tone-deaf, force-fed conformity, oblivious to the tremors beneath their feet.

    “Red flags” or “tremors” different expressions for the danger to Hillary she will not see. Those that encourage Hillary to move left are her enemies. Those that wave red flags in order to warn her of danger are her true friends. But these days she does not recognize friend from foe.

  35. Well Admin,
    I do think your assessment of Hillary is correct, she’s deranged. She wants the Presidency soo much she sold her soul to the devil. When you sell your soul, I don’t believe there is any coming back.
    I won’t and I can’t trust her. She is lost in the political wilderness, and like Moses and the Jewish people, c she will wonder for 40 years

  36. And there is someone who will provide political clout against the fraud…Trump
    There is no Democratic party anymore.Reality is, there is no Republican party either, they hate their conservative members, which interesting enough are the majority, like the Democratic party hates white middle class America….so it’s the person, the personality for me…

  37. The Clintons and the Obamas cannot stand each other – if politics does not drive them apart we hold a thin reed of hope that personality will.

    But what I don’t understand is, why would that come into play *now* when it hasn’t since May 2008?

  38. Lorac
    ,
    They may not like each other, really how could the Clinton’s stomach The Fraud and MEchelle…but that doesn’t mean she won’t be beholding to the same globalists. ..
    When billionaires dish out millions, it’s not for grins.
    Another reason to Love Trump

  39. That’s because there is no one else of sufficient clout that provides a potential counterpoint against Obama.

    Thanks, admin!! If it came from the horse’s mouth, people will heed and take note.

  40. lorac, Anyway – could you explain how you feel Obama-effect could continue to destroy our country after he is gone?

    Maybe admin will write an article about this and it will be much better than I can explain in two or three sentences, (I don’t like writing long comments). Obama is young, power hungry, needs to make millions, Michelle is thirsty, she needs her millions, Jarrett needs her ego stroked.. most of all, they all want to obliterate the Clintons out of the party. They play dirty and they are like the mob. It is bad for the country. Their golden goose is the Dem party and their hostage takers are the Blacks vote-bank for the Democratic party forever. He will be a lovable Farrakan with the Dem party at his feet and as his hostage.

  41. @lorac: But what I don’t understand is, why would that come into play *now* when it hasn’t since May 2008?

    Because he got the power of the presidency behind him and if she wins now, she will have the power of the presidency behind her. That is why it is imperative she wins. That is the tug of war that is going on now.

  42. Admin, these posts have been amazing. This site is my main source of news and opinion. I assume you have met Hillary at some point at leas in the past.
    All of this talk about Hillary changing to appeal to voters in the general is fantasy. She can not go back on so many positions…… just not possible. She would be the biggest flip flopper in political history. I do believe she has staked her future on these positions for reasons I certainly don’t understand.

    I don’t believe Hillary will do well against Trump if that is the race. Trump will try to annihilate her on her time as Sec of State and has a good chance of succeeding. During her time at State, under Obama and Jarrett’s direction, the middle East was lost to radical muslims. A fragile balance of power was changed for the worse. NO one is going to believe that Hillary kept things from being even worse. That is a negative argument that cant be proved.
    On tough negotiating skills with a Putin, he will win and as for creating jobs, well he will win on that too. He will crush her on her full support of Obamacare, even if she comes up with new proposals to “fix’ it. Ocare is not fixable…a fresh start is needed. Sadly, Ocare has probably poisioned the well for not for profit single payer right now.

  43. Hillary and the Dimocratic party appear to be trapped inside their own reality distortion field thinking that these recently concluded elections don’t portend the possible bloodbath next year’s election will bring to them. It doesn’t help that they refuse to listen to what the public is trying to tell them given Trump’s rise in the polls and that they keep reinforcing their confirmation bias by just huddling together forever talking about what the Red Guards want as their agenda for the next four years after Obola.

  44. Gonzo, I do still have hope that Hillary will return to the center – or at least not so far to the left – not a great deal, but some. Regardless, I am glad that she’s leaving Sanders in the dust. He’s a nut job. Plus, it pisses off the hillary-hating kooks.

    I feel less animosity than some toward Hillary because I don’t take her actions so personally. Judging from the articles here, Admin doesn’t either. Hillary is a politician. I believe she’s doing what she believes is necessary to survive. As Admin has said, she is absolutely not looking at things clearly – or is accepting some really bad advice. But, I don’t think for a minute that she would deliberately go through this presidential election campaigning in a way that would likely secure her defeat in the GE. Yet, that’s what she’s doing. Maybe she knows something we don’t. We were on the wings in 2008. She was front and center. Maybe she has changed, and has become much more liberal – but at her age, and with the country so fed up with the far left ideology right now, that doesn’t seem very likely.

    As I said, I don’t understand what she’s doing or why. But, I know without a doubt that she would be a better president than any of the Dim candidates. As far as the Repubs go, the only one I would support over her is Trump – although I don’t think it’s likely that he could accomplish everything he says he will do if elected. It’s rare than anyone can.

    I’ll still post positives about Hillary from time to time. And I’ll expect some here will respond with the animosity that comes from personal hurt and disappointment. I totally get it. We all put blood, sweat, tears, and money in to Hillary’s 2008 campaign. It’s easy to take it personally. But, Hillary has always done what she thought was necessary to survive, and worked like hell to achieve her goals. That’s what politicians do. Maybe I’m just too cynical, but I feel sure that if elected, Trump would do the same.

  45. Dumb question: how could anyone look at the absolute disaster that the VA is and want the government to expand it to a national level for everyone?

  46. lorac
    November 4, 2015 at 11:36 pm

    Thank you lorac, I have shared much the same path as you, and although I walked away during Benghazi, I still held a spark of hope that somehow Hillary would rip off her beggar rags and show her true self again – But that small hope is gone now too. I would like to remember her fondly.

    But as the democrat nominee she could make a huge contribution, the there really are two Americas, perhaps three. We are being presented with the personification of the permanent political class (GOPe), and Hillary is personifying the Obama democrat party (almost exaggerating the brand), and us, the middle class who Donald Trump represents.

    Remember when honest citizens wanted to see Obama’s birth certificate. Remember ‘birther’, ‘conspiracy nut”, ‘wacho-birds” all just slang for “Sit Down and Shut UP”, and Donald Trump took up their cause. He took a lot of ridicule for it, probably knew he would, sure didn’t have to, but did never the less because American citizens have a right to ask questions and have them answered.

    During the first month or so of his campaign, he was on stage for an interview with someone, a minor politician and both were seated. The politician pointed to the audience and asked to introduce Donald to his mother. In that unguarded moment Donald rose to his feet and and nodded respectfully to mom, while the son stayed sitting. No body can fake that respect for others, he was raised right and he raised his children right.

    How long have we been told that John McCain is an American war hero? Talk about lowered expectations. Now, thanks to Donald Trump, we remember Patton and MacArthur and when I see a picture of McCain I feel nothing but disdain.

    And in my opinion it is us, the third America, the middle class, who are carrying all the rest on our backs – and they are getting heavy.

  47. The problem with government-run healthcare like the VA is this pervasive mentality amongst policy makers that one shoe fits all size approach actually works. Maybe it does for the majority, but there will always be a significant number of outliers from the bell-shaped curve who will fall off the cliff and end up much worse both financially and healthwise.

  48. I got so long and involved that I failed to make the point I was straining for.

    With the three Americas personified with such clarity Americans can decide what kind of a government we want to pass from our parents to our children.

  49. Admin: I cannot say it often enough.

    The advice you have given to Hillary over and over and over again is golden.

    It is the key to winning elections—and Trump’s success using those very tactics proves it. His flamboyant ego helps as well, but Hillary has her own celebrity, so for her, the adoption of your tactics would have been the way to win the primary and the general election, whereas now she has saddled herself with the Obama legacy which is an albatross when it comes to the election that counts in November.

    But it is also important, indeed critical, to how she would govern, and what here legacy will be. Obama’s legacy of being the first black president is as nothing compared to the policy failures he has perpetrated in the name of the black race. They surround him, they feed off of him, and apart from their hatred of whites, those they have really let down are their own people. Affirmative action works fine for the professional class, but what does it do for the millions who are left behind.

    Years ago, I was asked to accept the position of General Counsel for a regional carrier, which was in many respects a Potemkin Village. To the outside viewer, it was an impressive operation. It was only when you gave it a proctological exam that you saw the pollups. One of the biggest of those was the relationship it had with its pilots, which had degenerated into a real pissing contest–so bad that the owner tore out the toilets in his airplanes just to fuck with the pilots, and they reciprocated by sending him federal express shipments filled with human excrement. Once you got past egos however you realized that the source of the problem was what he was paying those pilots around 30k per year. They would have tolerated this for a few years, IF there was some realistic hope that they could get on with a major trunk line carrier like United, Delta or American, even at B scale. But those major trunk carriers were not hiring, so those pilots were stuck for their entire careers in low paying jobs. The owner was too much of an egomanaic to realize this and too much of a hypocrite to curtail some of his own improvident investment, like a zero gravity plane.

    I was at Starbucks again morning talking with a young Mexican gentleman who was manning the clover machine, he showed me pictures of his costume celebrating the Mexican holiday of the Day of The Dead, and he mentioned again the other jobs he has to make ends meet. In a country that no longer produces high paying jobs, and ships the jobs it could have to China, what hope do these young people have. Nevertheless, they are too full of life to get depressed, but there will come a point in their lives when that whole generation will, and then they will become bitter as those pilots. They fatal attraction to the false god of progressivism and that man from La Mancha Bernie Sanders is based on a realization that the cards are stacked against them.

    Thus, beyond campaign tactics, your plea to Hillary is to recognize this, get in front of the power curve, and reach a new understanding with Wall Street and big media–like Trump is doing, which challenges the system of inverted totalitarianism and managed democracy and divide and conquer we have now. Her failure to pick up that ball and run with it is perhaps the greatest disappointment of all. This business of giving more protection to illegals, and raising minimum wage to $12 per hour, will do more to destroy the middle class and create a have and have not society than anything else. The comparison between San Francisco and Calcutta drawn by that Mexican barrista is insightful. The goal is government is not to create jobs, but to create a set of conditions which makes it more advantageous for companies to create them than not to create them, and promotes them as heroes when they do. By failing to pursue this course, Hillary ensures that even if she does become president, she will not be perceived as a great one, beyond the hollow accolade of being the first woman president.

  50. We need Trump wbb..we don’t need another “first” beholding to the power brokers.
    First, what the hell does it mean anyway, who’s on second?

  51. Free, Pm, southern and others…

    Thank you pm317 ! Hell yeah we get it, and have to hear it every time any positive remark is made – even a remark as benign and “I’m glad Hillary is doing well in Dim Polls.”

    Some of my eggs are going into Hillary’s basket too. Altho i don’t like the fact that she’s leaning too far to the left, If it turns out she is lying to get Obama-Dims and kooks on her side, with plans to move to the center once that mission is accomplished, imo no one deserves to be lied to by Hillary more. Not after they stole the nomination from her in 2008.

    ———-
    A big yup to that.

    Anyone that doesn’t think Trump has lied is kidding themselves.

    A small example: Trump was called out for staying something that was later disproved, his reply back was that he read it somewhere in a newspaper, doesn’t remember which one, but that he gets a lot of his ‘facts’ from the media. Then he goes on to trash the media.

    This might seem cute to many, a clever way to use the media…but you must be kidding yourself if you think Trump only speaks the truth and he is the only one that LOVES America.

    I don’t care if 95% of Big Pinkers will all vote for Trump. It isn’t my job to convince anyone to change their minds, but it is frustrating to constantly get badgered by anything positivie some Pinkers say about Hillary…and this constant back and forth is a waste of time.

    We should all be able to bring things to the blog and not be used like target practice.

    WE ALL ‘GET IT’.

    We do think it is imperative that Hillary get the party nomination.

    That’s because there is no one else of sufficient clout that provides a potential counterpoint against Obama.

    Perhaps Hillary is politically lost and deranged, we understand that. But if politics do not make her oppose Obama perhaps personality will.

    The Clintons and the Obamas cannot stand each other – if politics does not drive them apart we hold a thin reed of hope that personality will.

    ———-
    *********************Hell Yeah to this Admin!***********************

    I would bet a weeks pay that the Clinton’s can’t stand the Obama’s and they haven’t become daft about their fake, mushy support of him over the years.

    My sincere guess is that Hillary can’t become become President if she doesn’t win the Primary, and she can’t win the Primary unless she plays the game of embracing the nitwits that stabbed her in the back.

    I think once she has the Primary behind her, she will shed her burqua. Will she also shed her meatshield? I think she will frame everything OFruad has done as ‘some things need to go further, they need to be fixed’.

    For example, I am hoping Obamacare seems ‘good’ to her, only because it got past the Republican’s, but it’s main structure is a disaster that she will try to reconstruct in more of a way that doesn’t profit Big Pharma and the insurance companies. She has said that she wants health care for all Americans that is affordable, and ObamaCare isn’t. It wasn’t set up to be affordable for working Americans. She has already put the Insurance Companies down as one of her three biggest enemies.

    I think Hillary in her orange pantsuit will finally bust though that glass ceiling, and over time, will be the great woman I know she is.

  54. Admin

    Those that encourage Hillary to move left are her enemies. Those that wave red flags in order to warn her of danger are her true friends. But these days she does not recognize friend from foe.

    ———-
    She’s not the only one Admin.

    In 2008 I was pretty verbal about my support for her, lost many so-called friends that wanted the half black guy because he was so ‘unique’.

    These days, most of those people are out of my life and I normally do not talk to Obots about politics. I have a large photo of Bill and another one of Hillary by my desk…it seems to ward off evil spirts from anyone approching me and wanting to talk about Obama.

  55. “I do think your assessment of Hillary is correct, she’s deranged. She wants the Presidency soo much she sold her soul to the devil. When you sell your soul, I don’t believe there is any coming back.”
    ____________________________

    Now tell me again, which candidates or former presidents really did not want the presidency soo much? I can’t think of any who were forced into it kicking and screaming while shouting…NO…can you? Not sure why Hillary is pegged as wanting the presidency SOO much and we don’t hear that crap about other candidates. I never heard it about Barack Obama or any Bushs, Rubio, Fiorina, Carson, Trump, Sanders, etc. They all want it SOO much and if truth be known most sell their souls to the devil…special interests and big donors to get there since they really, honestly DO want it soo much or else they would not go through the horrors of the primary and the general.

    Who knows presently the real truth of why Hillary is leaning so far left with Obama’s agenda. I agree she is not the person she seemed to be in 2008. But in 2008 she didn’t have a possible indictment held over her head. Supposedly now it is up to the FBI and Attorney General to bring charges??

    Hum…now who controls the Attorney General? Hum. Was General Petraues a warning? “Don’t even think about telling the truth about BO and his administration or we will bring you down??” Don’t you suppose if ValJar and BO wanted to, they could get Hillary sent to prison or whatever?

    I have found no answers at this point but I do believe that something is going on for Hillary to be so different unless all of us totally misjudged her back in 2008 and I still don’t think we did.

  56. “Dr. Ben Carson is on his way to becoming just as whackadoodle as Dr. Rand Paul.”
    ________________

    We may find out a lot of things about some of the candidates when they are seriously vetted.

  57. Tony, this 7th Day wackadoodle stuff is not what America needs to hear from a Presidental candidate, especially a President.

    Toss out history,
    Toss out science,

    and just stop thinking for yourself, follow religious dogma right off the cliff, like a bunch of lemmings.

  58. By the decree of Forbes Magazine, Putin is the most powerful leader in the word–#1 3 years for the third straight year.

    Where does that leave the big media beloved messiah, the world nervously asks. In third place, hanging like a turd to the tail of an airplane in mid flight, and grinning like a possum eating shit out of a hair brush. For he may have no bust of Chuchill, but he does have that silly Nobel Prize honoring what Soros and his buddies in Europe expected him to do, and now, the limp dick award commemorating what he actually accomplished, with big media covering for him every step of the way. Time to say good night sweet prince to Obama, go write your fucking memoirs, and flush Chuck Todd, Scott Pelly et al down the comode with the rest of the stinking sewage otherwise known as the (beighted, but think they are brilliant) political class. A Harvard diploma may guarantee arrogance and that to the manor born attitude characteristic of the breed. But evidence show it is no guarantee of intelligence.
    , and get the limp dick of the century reward–maybe the limpest dick of all recorded time.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin emerged as the world’s most powerful person for the third year running. Putin continues to prove he’s one of the few men in the world powerful enough to do what he wants –and get away with it. International sanctions set in place after he seized Crimea and waged war-by-proxy in Ukraine have kneecapped the Ruble and driven Russia into deepening recession, but haven’t hurt Putin one bit: In June his approval ratings reached an all-time high of 89%. In October, he bombed ISIS forces in Syria and then met face-to-face with President Assad, making the U.S and NATO look weak in the region, and helping rebuild Russian influence abroad.

    The second most powerful person in the world also happens to be the most powerful woman: Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany, jumps up from #5 last year to take the runner-up spot on the list. Merkel is the backbone of the 28-member European Union, and her decisive actions dealing with the Syrian refugee problem and the Greek credit crisis helped bump her up the list.

    U.S. President Barack Obama fell one spot on this year’s list to #3. There’s no doubt that the United States remains the world’s greatest economic, cultural, diplomatic, technological and military power. But as Obama enters the final year of his presidency, it’s clear his influence is shrinking, and it’s a bigger struggle than ever to get things done. At home, his approval ratings are perpetually stuck under 50%; abroad, he’s outshined by Merkel in Europe, and outmaneuvered by Putin in the Middle East.

    It should come as literally no shock whatsoever. When intel came out that heavily suggests ISIS had gotten a bomb on the Russian plane that went down over Sinai, many reactions on social media were, essentially: “Well, ISIS is screwed now.” More people perceive Russia as being able to deal with the greatest global security threat of the modern era, the same threat the Obama administration has been half-heartedly poking for a while now.

    The man does what he wants, when he wants to, and no one is stopping him. He defies you to stop him. He is begging the United States and other world players to try.

    Merkel, meanwhile, is the name that always pops up in a conversation about Europe, because she leads the European Union. She is perceived, and rightfully so, of having the keys to the EU. She is a household name across the globe because she gets the press coverage whenever things go right or, more often than not, when things go wrong in Europe.

    And, then there’s Barack Obama. The Mom Jeans Wonder falls to number three in the list because he is ineffective. He can get nothing done. He goes in front of the media and repeatedly talks about how little he can get done. It’s not just his own power that appears weak, but the power of America as a whole.

  59. The challenge for Obama supporters is to hold their own poll showing Obama to be a trancendental force for good in the world, and get big media to hype that lie until they come back to this one. By the way, I shutter to think what this little monster is doing now, beyond pulling wings off flies, blowing up chemistry labs, and becoming a full fledged nihist. Meanwhile ISIS can provide the musical chorus en fortissimo. To the American People who voted for him: SO LONG SUCKERS.

  60. last night I caught the end of a segment on Bill O’rielly where he had two women on…one was a Latina woman and the other a Democratic consultant…i cannot remember their names and could not find the clip…

    but the bottom line was listening to the Latina woman explain in simple and common sense terms why thousands and thousands of hispanics not only love Donald Trump but will definitely vote for him

    essentially she said…what many of us agree with…that the legal hispanic community is already having a tough time finding jobs and many have to work second and third jobs to get by and support their families…

    she said they do not want illegal immigrants continually pouring into the country and then competing with the legal immigrants for scarce jobs and in addition, pushing the wages down even lower because the illegal immigrants will work for whatever they can get…

    she said the legal immigrant community wants to see the jobs that exist go to their neighbors and friends who are here legally, not more illegals…

    she said that the AA community has also been hit hard and has a difficult time finding work…she also wants to see her AA friends and neighbors get jobs and not have to compete with more illegals coming in

    She emphasized that the hispanic community loves Donald Trump and all this stuff you hear about them hating him and protesting him is a small contingent supported by special interests and more illegals…

    bottom line she said, DT has a lot more support from the hispanic community than is registering and it is from all over the country…

    the hispanic community knows that DT will create jobs…

    oh, and they showed that clip of the hispanic kids swearing…the latina woman was appalled that anyone would exploit those children like that

    the democratic woman babbled on in some futile defense…the dims now are positioned to defend the indefensible…

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

    the economy is still number one for most people…economy = jobs…

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

    meanwhile how is Hillary going to handle this reality in the national campaign when she and the Democrats support santuary cities and bringing in more illegals…

    “comprehensive immigration reform” is a term that is meaningless and translates to the existing Dem party essentially wanting open borders…what is going to be in their platform regarding these issues?…

  61. New N.Carolina Poll – State Primary

  62. I think it is pretty clear that what this country needs is for Trump and Hillary to be the nominees. I am going to focus on that, support both of them, and sort out the Versus, later.

    Being pissed at Hillary, I post oppositional things on her FB page regularly, if only for emotional relief.

  63. Lu

    I agree that Hillary and Trump are the best nominees…and as much as I want her to swing to the center…I hate seeing her used as a punching bag after all the backstabs she has already received.

    I am going on pure faith for the woman I am sure she is.

  64. Southern,
    Since you asked… I think the day Hillary walked across the stage at the Dumecratic Convention she made her pact with the Devil. When she walked off that stage, she was done with the American middle class.
    People who think she will steer to the middle after the nomination, well good luck with that, there’s a reason her negatives are so high. I believe she will actually cement her position, because that is what her handlers, the trillionares demand.

    Open borders, illegals galore, cheap labor, expensive drugs and Insurance,Climate change baloney, Black lives only matter, whatever the elites want…and of course the “film”.

    She’s not coming back to the middle, she is long gone.

  65. Your not being used as target practice by anyone Shadow and CO., If you think that, I am surprised you read Admins posts. She rips Hillary in everyone of them. If anyone knows her better than you or me, it’s Admin.

    I will continue to post whatever I feel like, feel free, as I said before to move past.

  66. Yeah Fraud, Merkel and open border supporters, you know who you are…

    Lets have more of this…found at ACEOFSPADES..

    Is Faisal Mohammad’s Stabbing Rampage An Extension of the Stabbing Intifada Into America?
    —Ace

    FoxNews reported:

    As authorities worked to establish a motive for the 18-year-old college freshman who stabbed four people on a California campus Wednesday, more disturbing details emerged about the attacker.

    Faisal Mohammad, who was killed by University of California Merced police, was described by at least one witness as smiling as he slashed at victims, called a loner by a fellow dorm resident and drew praise Thursday from a Twitter account associated with ISIS, which just last week released a series of videos calling for lone wolf stabbing attacks.

    “May Allah accept him,” read a tweet in Arabic from a Twitter account that terrorism experts say has carried previous ISIS propaganda, just minutes after Mohammad’s name was divulged by campus authorities.

    David French notes this sounds suspiciously like the frenzy of random knife attacks that Israelis are suffering from.

    I hate to admit this but this didn’t occur to me — I did imagine this man was stabbing people due to “unknown motives,” by which I of course mean “Islamist rage,” but I did not make the connection to the vicious stabbings in Israel.

    We should definitely let more and more of these people in. Bringing in people who bring their thousand-year racist wars to the malls and schools of America is good for the economy, a joint study by the Brookings Institute and the Chamber of Commerce has conclusively proven.

    Only racists, such as Kathy Steinle, could disagree with the idea of an America Without Borders.

    Incidentally, despite the fact that he was described as a loner who rarely spoke, and is apparently a jihadist nutter, his roommate was quoted as saying he just couldn’t believe good ol’ Faisal Mohammad was the lunatic mass-stabber. Just couldn’t believe it!

    Andrew Velasquez is one of three UC Merced students who shared a dorm suite with Mohammed, and he described his roommate as someone who “didn’t talk much,” Velasquez told CNN affiliate KFSN.

    “Every time I would try to say something, he seemed like he’d just ignore it,” Velasquez told the station.

    “I never saw him walk with anybody” to class, he said.

    About Mohammad having been the attacker, Velasquez said: “Why would someone want to do that? I just didn’t expect it to be him.”

    A silent, glowering loner with nothing left to lose? Why would you ever suspect him to be a problem?

    But we’re now conditioned to pretend that dangerous people are not dangerous, and that devices which look just like bombs are really just super-amazing clocks.

    Otherwise, You’re Racist (TM).

  67. Matthew Yglesias is one of the “cultural creative” kooks who convinced the Democratic Party that Obama’s coalition was the way to go. As the Obama situation comedy demographics coalition which we mocked from the very beginning collapses even this miserable kook (who should be beaten into pulp) faces up to our fearsome critique. Here is his latest which agrees with our assessment:

    http://www.vox.com/2015/11/5/9672706/kentucky-virginia-democrats-denial

    This week’s elections in Kentucky and Virginia reveal the Democratic Party’s peril

    Kentucky and Virginia have been treading opposite political trajectories for the past 20 years, but on Election Day 2015 they came together to deliver a clear warning that the Democratic Party is in a much weaker political position than most of its supporters realize. The Kentucky result, in which a reasonably popular Democratic attorney general was bested by a Tea Party favorite last seen getting crushed by Mitch McConnell in a primary, has garnered more attention. But it’s Virginia that’s the more profound sign of the party’s rot.

    The root cause of the rot is something progressives generally know deep down but are reluctant to admit. The Blue Team in American politics, the one whose leader sits in the White House and used to be a community organizer, has gotten routinely out-organized by conservatives, who inhabit denser, more meaningful social networks and exhibit concurrent greater political awareness and commitment.

    A disappointment in Kentucky, a disaster in Virginia

    The loss of the Kentucky governor’s mansion comes as a serious disappointment to Democrats, but largely because it confirms a trend the party has mostly learned to live with — Kentucky and Kentucky-like places have broken hard to the right in American politics as the Democratic Party coalition has become more firmly based on nonwhites and secularly minded college graduates. The local Kentucky version of the Democratic Party puts a different face forward than the national party — less culturally liberal and fanatically devoted to the Cult of Coal — but the growing nationalization of politics advantages the Kentucky GOP.

    Democrats’ more fundamental problem is that these same trends ought to help them in Virginia, which has a large African-American population, growing Latino and Asian voting blocks, and a very well-educated set of white people. [snip]

    It would be foolish to chalk up Democrats problems at downballot politics exclusively to low turnout. Low turnout isn’t why there’s a Republican governor of Illinois, and low turnout isn’t why coal country is trending red. [snip]

    Ih skipping past the trollish framing and fully reading Eitan Hersh’s recent 538 article about school board elections. In this specific case, it’s Democratic Party politicians — not Republicans — who deliberately seek weird election dates in order to encourage low turnout. The reason is that teachers unions like it this way. And the reason for that isn’t that public school teachers are rich or politically conservative — it’s that public school teachers are well-organized politically. [snip]

    The other major civic institution in American life is the church, and people who attend religious services regularly are much more likely to vote Republican.

    When and where labor unions are a big deal; they serve as a counterbalancing force of organization. But where they have few members — which is more and more places these days — there is not a great deal else to offer. Secular people don’t meet weekly to hear a little speech about secular values and their application to ongoing events in the community, and environmental groups are generally not real mass-membership organizations that directly engage ordinary people.

    Political scientist Philip Klinkner posits that a spell out of the White House will cure what ails Democrats. I’m not so sure, but even if it’s true, it underscores the extent of the peril the party is in. Republicans have a perfectly plausible path to total political domination — win the 2016 presidential election — while the Democrats simply don’t.

    Matty makes a lot of whiny process arguments about lack of organizing and such. It’s a bullshit argument and excuse making. The failure of the Democratic Party, and at this point Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016, is the abandonment of the working class of the dominant racial group in the country.

    We’ve written before that a party that purports to be of the left, a party that is supposed to represent “the people”, but a party that abandons and at many points hates the dominant racial group and the working class of that group is a contraction that deserves and will get extinction.

    Throw in the attacks against the religious and cultural majority and that party deserves a bloody death. Obama’s attacks in 2008 against people who “cling” to their guns and Bibles is applauded by Matthew Yglesias and his vermin ilk. The controling class of what is now the Democratic Party hates the people and mocks their cultural values. That is why the Democratic Party will fail and why it deserves to fail.

    Admin, I went to check out that anti-Trump video this afternoon and read some comments that YouTube was lowering the number of “dislikes” on the video while hiking the “likes”. I figured another “conspiracy” theory so I decided to test myself. I wrote down the number of dislikes, hit refresh and sure enough, the number was lower by 20. I just went back now and it has been lowered 156 from the number when I originally viewed the video.

    I don’t know which is worse, the video or the BS YouTube is trying to pull. Unfortunately, both show the state of this nation at this time.

  70. Admin,

    The black working class has taken a worse beating than the white, from Obola’s policies. I see it as a looting of middle class wealth. Convince the poor, then loot the middle class and cheat the poor. That is what they have done. Plenty of stupid white middle class people voted for it, too. Believed what they heard on TV.

    I’ve been wondering for awhile about blackmail (excuse me, 1/2-black blackmail lol). The thing is, if Obama & crew are threatening Hillary to not tell their various secrets – what’s going to change if she gets the nomination and even wins the general. I would imagine that they *never* want that information released, and should she tell the truth throughout her presidency (and beyond?) IF this is true, she can never go to centrist..

    The Dims missed the boat when they assumed that a large segment of their new Dim Coalition would come from the Hispanic community. They were sure that O’s amnesty for illegals would win the day, securing the Hispanic vote for the Dims for a long time to come. Of course a Texas judge had the guts to say “hell no” to O and his amnesty plan. But, from what we are seeing among Hispanic voters a large number of them objected to amnesty anyway. The Dims get it wrong again.

    Where’s Dona Brazille? How’s that new Dim coalition working out for ya now, Dona? You and your fellow Obama-nuts said working class whites they weren’t needed. They left in droves. Good call, Donna. You’re a joke.

  78. Donna Brazile has accomplished what she set out to do. The Dems have doubled down and continued the open borders policies of the Repugs bringing millions from South and Central America. No one is going to be able to undo the citizenship status of anchor babies. Even if we deport many illegals and stop birthright citizenship, I believe its too late.
    I think that white haters like Obama and Brazile want whites to be minority in this country and they have succeeded.
    In a very short few years, the nation will be minority white if it isn’t already. Just look at my town of East Hampton. The schools are now majority Hispanic. Many of the families have been here – illegally- for so many years
    that the children were born here. In the lower grades most have US birth certificates. They have take over many areas of the economy, most of the blue collar jobs in construction, landscaping, restaurants, etc. Many of the kids are college bo9und to become professionals.
    They will soon be able to vote their candidates to Town Board and take control. East Hampton will soon be a place for wealthy elite 2nd home owners and the Hispanics who will tend to their needs. The rich and unique intellectual,
    cultural and environmental community here is shrinking and leaving.
    NYC is another example. De Blasio doesn’t care about the New York that the world loves…..the intellectual and cultural center…because it serves mainly the rich. He just wants everyone to pay for all the poor and illegals who make their way here. Don’t get me wrong. I care about poor people as much as anyone. I was a dedicated special ed teacher in the South Bronx for a time. But law abiding Americans should not have to subsidize illegal behavior. Its wrong and we cant afford it.

  79. We have given over control of our country to people who broke our laws and forced their way in. The demands they are now making are just the beginning. I predict that Spanish will become the dominant language in the future and you will press 2 for English.

  80. People who do not grasp the necessity of what Trump is doing, and make fun of him have a pathetically limited understanding of what is going on in the country. They are ignorant as swans. We are under invasion and our country is being overrun. Engaging with them is a waste of time. You can’t fix stupid. History has shown that new information makes no difference to them. If you adhere to this philosophy then you will save yourself a lot of frustration, trying to teach pigs to sing.

  81. We have given over control of our country to people who broke our laws and forced their way in. The demands they are now making are just the beginning.
    —————
    Yes. They are. And Hillary has already told us that she will say yes to every one of those demands if they vote for her. Make no mistake. That is the subtext of what she is saying, and political momentum will do the rest. Given the path she has chose, i.e. to be the anti Hillary of 2008, that is inevitable. The people around her–and Wall Street–and Soros who is involved in her campaign, have told her exactly that, this is as inevitable as a second 911 when we accept a million Syrians. I doubt that her husband is keen on this, which is why their public appearances are curtailed, plus his presence would be displeasing to Obama and his black cult. No a lot of family pictures for the public these days are there.

    Ben Carson candidacy in trouble after admitting he fabricated West Point Scholarship…..

    Ruh roh…..

  83. http://www.politico.com/story/2015/11/ben-carson-west-point-215598

    Ben Carson’s campaign on Friday admitted, in a response to an inquiry from POLITICO, that a central point in his inspirational personal story was fabricated: his application and acceptance into the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

    The academy has occupied a central place in Carson’s tale for years. According to a story told in Carson’s book, “Gifted Hands,” the then-17 year old was introduced in 1969 to Gen. William Westmoreland, who had just ended his command of U.S. forces in Vietnam, and the two dined together. That meeting, according to Carson’s telling, was followed by a “full scholarship” to the military academy.

    West Point, however, has no record of Carson applying, much less being extended admission.

    “In 1969, those who would have completed the entire process would have received their acceptance letters from the Army Adjutant General,” said Theresa Brinkerhoff, a spokeswoman for the academy. She said West Point has no records that indicate Carson even began the application process. “If he chose to pursue (the application process), then we would have records indicating such,” she said.

    When presented with these facts, Carson’s campaign conceded the story was false.

    “Dr. Carson was the top ROTC student in the City of Detroit,” campaign manager Barry Bennett wrote in an email to POLITICO. “In that role he was invited to meet General Westmoreland. He believes it was at a banquet. He can’t remember with specificity their brief conversation but it centered around Dr. Carson’s performance as ROTC City Executive Officer.”

  84. My daughter was recruited by big basketball universities. All the coaches offered scholarships, now did they have paperwork in hand? No,you had their word.

    My guess is that it was a similar situation with Carson.

  85. No its not, Carson said he got a scholarship snd has been saying that as a central part of his biography, he never even applied.

    Out and out fabrication.

    Clinton’s emails did not contain highly classified secrets, inquiry finds

    Read more: http://www.politico.com/story/2015/11/hillary-clinton-email-no-highly-classified-215599#ixzz3qjweH4Dk
    The U.S. intelligence community has retreated from claims that two emails in Hillary Clinton’s private account contained top secret information, a source familiar with the situation told POLITICO.

    The determination came from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s office and concluded that the two emails did not include highly classified intelligence secrets. Concerns about the emails’ classification helped trigger an on-going FBI inquiry into Clinton’s private email set-up.

    Intelligence Community Inspector General I. Charles McCullough III made the claim that two of the emails contained top secret information, the State Department publicly stated its disagreement and asked Clapper’s office to referee the dispute. Now, that disagreement has been resolved in State’s favor, said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

    Intelligence officials claimed one email in Clinton’s account was classified because it contained information from a top secret intelligence community “product” or report, but a further review determined that the report was not issued until several days after the email in question was written, the source said.

    “The initial determination was based on a flawed process,” the source said. “There was an intelligence product people thought [one of the emails] was based on, but that actually postdated the email in question.”

    A top expert in classification procedures called the development ” an astonishing turn of events.”

    By Eliza Collins

    “It’s not just a mistake,” said Steven Aftergood of the Federation of American Scientists. “It was a transformative event in the presidential campaign to this point. It had a potential to derail Clinton’s presidential candidacy.”

    Aftergood said Clapper’s office should be credited for seriously reconsidering the earlier conclusions by intelligence agencies.

    “Usually, when an agency commits itself to a judgment that is this consequential, the agency will tend to dig in its heels and insist–no matter what–it was right. What’s unusual here is an agency said we reconsidered and we changed out mind. That’s a difficult thing to do, and they’re liable to be attacked for doing it,” Aftergood said.

    In an August 11 memo to 17 lawmakers, McCullough said the two emails “include information classified up to TOP SECRET//SI/TK/NOFORN.” The subject of the emails has never been publicly confirmed, but published reports have said one refers to North Korea’s nuclear program and another to U.S. drone operations. The acronym “SI” in the classification marking refers to “signals intelligence” and a footnote in McCullough’s memo references the work of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, which oversees U.S. spy satellites.

    A State spokesman had no immediate comment for this story. However, State spokesman John Kirby said in September that the agency believed State officials may have gotten some of the information in the emails from sources different from the highly-sensitive sources used by intelligence agencies.

    “One thing that’s important to remember is that very often the State Department and the intelligence community acquire information from separate channels, and thus there can be more than one report about a certain issue or an event. And some of those reports can be derived wholly through unclassified means. and some are derived through classified means,” Kirby told reporters.

  87. moon

    Saying you were offered vs “got”.. My daughter still says offered, even though the actual University was not sitting on my couch offering it, it was the coach, who represented the same. There wouldn’t be a paper trail

    I get it, you don’t like Carson, I actually don’t think he’s someone I support, but your beating a dead horse and supporting the left Political?

  88. Whats your problem, Carson’s own campaign has now admitted the story was fabricated…..ask him and ask your beloved Trump who is now busy beating him over the head with it.

  89. No moon they are not saying they fabricated it or lying but that the conversation happened and if he would have proceed in that avenue I am, sure he would have been accepted.
    I am sure you know that a congressmen or military representative must nominate you to be considered for Westpoint? That conversation I can believe took place, but like my daughter, who at the time wanted to go to Med school, she did not, accept overtures by the Airforce for the same reason.
    Less of an exaggerated statement then say, Hillary, taking, enemy fire I would, say.

  90. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/06/chuck-schumer-rubio-totally-committed-to-obamas-immigration-agenda/

    Presumptive Senate Minority Leader, Sen. Chuck Schumer, tells CNN that
    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was “not only totally committed” to the Obama-backed 2013 immigration expansion bill, but that “his fingerprints are all over that bill.”

    The La Raza-backed Rubio-Schumer immigration bill would have granted amnesty to the illegal alien population and would have expanded immigration levels beyond all known historical precedent— issuing 33 million new immigrants on green cards in the span of a single decade, permanently transforming the U.S. electorate and economy. Every immigrant with a green card could in turn bring relatives to the United States, collect welfare, and eventually vote and thus cancel out conservative ballots.

    “He was not only totally committed— he was in that room with us, with four Democrats, four Republicans… for hours a day, week after week after week,” Schumer told CNN. “His fingerprints are all over that bill. It has a lot of Rubio imprints.”

    “He understood it, he molded it, he made it a tough path to citizenship,” Schumer said. “But we all agreed to it, and it would have to be a tough path to citizenship. But he was all for it.”

    As many reports have indicated, in 2013 Rubio became the public face of the immigration agenda of Barack Obama, La Raza, and the Chamber of Commerce. Rubio was the “salesman” for the bill— it was Rubio’s job to sell the bill to conservative opinion makers, who had trusted him.

    For instance, at the time Rubio pledged to Rush Limbaugh, “If there is not language in this bill that guarantees that nothing else will happen unless these enforcement mechanisms are in place, I won’t support it.” Even though, as Sen. Schumer explained, the bill would grant amnesty to the illegal population “on day one” before the border was secured, Rubio voted for the bill anyway.

    Rubio similarly told Sean Hannity at the time, “I don’t think any of that [i.e. amnesty] begins until we certify that the border security progress has been real. That a workplace enforcement mechanism is in place. That we are tracking visitors to our country, especially when they exit.”

    Rubio, however, voted against an amendment offered by his Republican colleague that would have added a visa tracking system to the Obama-backed immigration bill.

    As a result, Senator Rubio succeeded in passing through the Senate a bill that would have added four times more new foreign workers than the rejected 2007 McCain-Kennedy bill.

    As Senator
    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)said, Rubio has never changed his immigration positions on anything— nor has he ever asked for an apology or admitted that anything he ever said was wrong. Rubio has continued to pledge his support for all of the major policies outlined in the Gang of Eight bill: including green cards and thus citizenship and welfare for illegal aliens, expanded refugee resettlement, and he has introduced brand new legislation backed by his Silicon Valley supporters to massively increase the number of wage-cutting H-1bs. Rubio has also admitted that he would continue the President’s unconstitutional DACA amnesty.

    In a recent article regarding Rubio’s refusal to commit to revoking Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty, Greg Sargent of the Washington Post writes, “Rubio had hoped to fudge the issue, signaling sufficient contrition to conservatives while still keeping his positions vague enough to leave a route back to supporting some form of reform that includes legalization in the general election.”

    Schumer’s declaration seems to confirm the fears of Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, Daniel Horowitz and other prominent conservatives, who— following
    Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)’s election as House Speaker— warned that the group behind the 2013 amnesty push is getting back together to push amnesty in 2017.

    These conservatives argue that with Rubio in the White House, Paul Ryan in the Speakership, and Chuck Schumer as the Senate Minority Leader, it would be impossible to stop a mass immigration expansion bill. As CNN observed, Schumer has worked with both Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio on immigration. Schumer explained that, as Senate Minority leader, he would reach out and work with pro-amnesty Republicans. “I’m going to try to reach out to Republicans… I think I can work well, I’ve shown it, with the [John] McCains, the [Lindsey] Grahams, the [Lamar] Alexanders,” Schumer said.

    On Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM radio, Sen. Jeff Sessions laid out a new litmus test that he says must apply to anyone running for the GOP nomination. Sessions explained that it goes without saying that a GOP nominee can’t have certain positions on certain issues. Sessions rattled off a few examples: “A Republican candidate for President cannot run in favor of Obamacare, can’t run in favor of more taxes, more spending and more debt.” Yet, while these topics are all a given point of agreement, they remain almost the exclusive focus of the GOP primary debate.

    Sessions said this litmus test must be applied two two new issues— trade and immigration. Sessions has been an outspoken opponent of large-scale immigration and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Sessions said: “Goodness gracious, I don’t think a Republican candidate should be running for President that says they’re for amnesty, for even more immigration, and for trade agreements that don’t serve the national interest.”

    Rubio cast the 60th deciding vote to fast-track TPP— removing the ability to amend the agreement, or apply either a 60-vote or 67-vote standard— and Rubio is the most aggressive proponent of expanding record immigration in the GOP field.

    According to Pew, by a nearly 5-to-1 margin, Republican voters believe that so-called free trade agreements like the TPP will slash wages rather than raise them. Only 11 percent of GOP voters say these trade agreements would increase wages. Similarly, more than nine in ten Republican voters would like to see future immigration levels cut.

  91. They all do it, exaggerate here, down play there, kina like my resume

    If it isn’t an outright lie, like actual military service where there was none, or making yourself to be a hero when others put their lives on the line, I dont pit too much into it unless its a continuous action.

  92. btw…Rubio’s billionaire supporter…who shunned Bush for Rubio…is an ‘open borders’ supporter

    with the Dims or Rubio…this is what we will get…I worry about our country

  93. Some days I feel like I have walked into the twilight zone when I visit this site. Perhaps its time to take a long break until this place decides exactly what it is, because frankly I am not sure anymore, its does feel like invasion of the body snatchers has occurred.

    Maybe I need a new direction……We certainly are not the place we were in 2008 for better or worse its been interesting but I am not sure I ahve the strength to do this all over again……considering the change.

    I don’t understand all this trump love, all this hillary hate…….but thats me.

    Whatever happens thank you for the good times but i need to stand back………..enjoy.

  94. Sorry you feel that way Moon, though I can see why. I never thought I wouldnt suppot Hillay, but then I never thought she would do and say the things she has.

    Its been a clusterf#ck since. 5/31….

    I think we’re all just trying to figure it out although the machine really wont let us…its probably too late.

  95. Moon, I have often felt the same way, and many others do too.

    I personally hope you don’t leave because you are appreciated by many at Big Pink.

    Some days I have to walk away for awhile, to not get into a fight. I think if the few of us that stand by Hillary leave…Admin will be alone fighting to get Hillary on the right track.

  96. I like Jeff Sessions, he seems to say what he means and mean what he says S, very rare these days.

    Rubio is a snake, can’t stand him.

  97. moononpluto,

    You are appreciated here. I have waited 8 years to vote for Hillary and I am not going to give up easily. I know she does not have the independence of a Billionaire, but I hate the frog kissing.

    I appreciate Trump speaking up for us and saying the things that Hillary cannot. The next year should be very interesting.

  98. Donald Trump could manage the illegal immigration problem. It is not really rocket science. First, start building the wall and cut off entitlements. Then enforce the law against employers. For your more violent criminals, the Commander in Chief will have some challenging activities for his peace time armed forces. After all, we have been invaded.

    If all he achieved was to stop further illegal invasion and get rid of the dead beats and criminals, the nation would survive it just fine.

    More of a problem are is the economy and the financial state of the nation. Do not be fooled by the recent stock market rallies. They are faux. The world economy is rotten to the core. The stock buybacks will only work for so long and earnings are going down, down, down.

    And, you see, Money Changes Everything

  99. Moon, as Shadow said. you are not alone, and I hope you’ll stick around. Your insights and comments are valued.

  100. “It’s not just a mistake,” said Steven Aftergood of the Federation of American Scientists. “It was a transformative event in the presidential campaign to this point. It had a potential to derail Clinton’s presidential candidacy.”

    Hell yeah it was. If they can’t take her down with one sleazy move, they’ll try to nail her with another. And when their charges and claims don’t stick, they refuse to admit they made false accusations. They claim she just too slippery to get caught. Wonder what they’ll investigate her for next – armed robbery? Making moonshine whiskey? arson?

  101. Lu, what does that mean exactly? Instead of paying extra on each payment for interest, you would get some taken off…? I just can’t figure out what negative interest rates mean lol TIA

  102. Thanks, gonzo! So it’s about money we deposit, no payments we are making….

    From your second link:

    Examples
    An example of a negative interest rate policy would be to set the key rate at – 0.2%, such that bank depositors would have to pay two-tenths of a percent on their deposits instead of receiving any sort of positive interest.
    snip
    Theoretically, targeting interest rates below zero will reduce the costs to borrow for companies and households, driving demand for loans and incentivizing investment and consumer spending. Retail banks may choose to internalize the costs associated with negative interest rates by paying them, which will negatively impact profits, rather than passing the costs to small depositors for fear that otherwise they will move their deposits into cash.

  103. I just watched the movie called, ‘The Diplomat’. It is about Richard Holbrooke’s career. Bill and especially Hillary have a decent part in it. Turns out Hillary saved Holbrooke’s job a couple of times, Obama didn’t like him because he didn’t essentially kiss Obama’s ring, he was in a meeting with Hillary when she noticed his face turned red, said told him he was going to the doctor’s…later that day or so, he died.

    There was also a tape made my Holbrooke saying that Obama didn’t like him, would not meet with him and how Obama was working more with the military, shutting out diplomacy with Afghanistan and how Holbrooke would send a hand delivered note to Hillary making sure the ‘Obama staff’ were not in charge of delivering her a message from him.

    It also was evident that Holbrooke didn’t think Obama knew what he was doing.

    Rubio is going to get the nomination, i think he is probably the chosen one.
    ——
    That has been my fear for the past several years, ever since he broke his word on illegal immigration. aI could give you a long dissertation on why that is true, why it is a sell out for the American People, and why it means Hillary will never become president. He is the one who would destroy her. So if you want this guy as much as you despise Trump, then beware of what you are wishing for because you may have the misfortune of getting it.

  105. If you recollect the movie The Caine Mutiny there is a character in it played by Fred McMurray who encourages the executive officer to mutiny and then claims he had nothing to do with it. In one of his lines he says he is too smart to be courageous—he can think of ten reasons not to stand tall on anything. That is like so many people I know, especially in the professional class, because many of them are wusses to begin with, and those who are not have become passive aggressive in order to be perceived as civil. But at some point they become just passive, and you cannot rely on them when the chips are down. Then, every once in a while you run into somebody who does not fold. We shall see how it goes, but I have a witness in a case right now who is a record holding race car driver, a race car designer,and, of all things an ordained minister. I need him to stand tall in a case I am handling where there is nothing in it for him, except that often forgotten principle of doing the right thing. This is tough enough anyway given the nature of the case, which I cannot go into. But it is made infinitely tougher by the fact that he has two brain tumors, and his wife has breast cancer. I keep expecting him to fold, but there he stands like Stonewall Jackson. Little things like that suggest that even in the darkest hour, jbstonesfan, it is always light.

    ___________-____

    Exactly!!!! 🙂

  107. I will tell you, it is time for guns and bibles. These lousy parasites who are sucking the life out of the nation should be grateful if all we do is elect a POTUS who looks after our interests instead of theirs. But regardless, their days are numbered and a lot of them know that. There is only so much blood you can suck out. They do not care if the nation dies, only that some of their sucking will end with it. They are not going to stop themselves. But as they see the end near, they may be more willing to accept some limits. Otherwise, Trump would just be a dead man. They would find a way.

    Right now it looks like Obola is going to try to keep the bubbles inflated through the end of his term, even if it means going into the bank accounts of savers and taking their money with NIRP. That is the significance of DT’s reference to the FED and Obama directing them to maintain ZIRP.

    Yea, sorry Shadow, but I have to sing DT’s praise.

  108. Moononpluto…I hope you will stay too…I also feel at times I need a break from the whole messed up deal and just want to escape to HGTV or something fun with talent and music anything other than what we are all facing now…

    but we can’t escape…and what will be will be…

    we have all been kind of bonded here for a long time…nothing is personal…we all have a right to contribute our observations and concerns and different POV’s (except for the very obvious trolls disrupters who tried and failed)

    that is what makes this place so special…Admin has created a space for brutal honesty…it does not mean we do not love Hillary…and Bill…or want her to win…but what is most important…above any one person…is what they…and their party/platform will do with the power…and our taxpayer money once they get it…

    I do think we all agree we cannot have an Obama third term…regardles of who is embodying it…

    it really is up to Hillary to make that stand…

    there is a lot of time for discussion ahead…some of it good and some of it not so good…

    eyes wide open…if you need a break, take it…but don’t leave…your input is valued here…

  109. Yea, sorry Shadow, but I have to sing DT’s praise.

    Come on Lu, you’ve known me a long time. We have both treated each other with respect and believe me when I say, I have not been awarded the honor of being the Hillary policewoman on this blog.

    I honestly don’t care if you vote for Trump or not, my beef is with those that give crap to the few Hillary supporters on HER blog, when they post something positive about Hillary.

    I really HATE that we have now lost Moon.

  110. Shadowfax,

    I hope Moon will be back. Stand your ground. My heart belongs to Hillary. And I must say, that throughout the campaign, she has looked quite well and seems to be getting some of her spirit back.

  111. Some people just drip with Borderline Personality disorder.

    On another note, it’s Donald Trump live from the WH on Saturday night!

  112. Ben Carson is a fabulist. The smartest and most gifted surgeon of all time (shades of the amazing Constitutional scholar and genius lawyer currently occupying the White House) perhaps created a character to justify an amazing run of luck aided heavily by affirmative action. I too was “offered” a scholarship to attend a service academy in 1971 because of grades and athletics only the offer-er was a Congressman. Coming from a family of insolent buck privates my mother and I knew I would be a disaster. So I went to a cow college and did well on a partial scholarship with the rest of the hicks. I never think of it and don’t consider it an accomplishment because the academies were trolling for frag bait during the same period as old Gentle (passive aggressive) Ben.

    There is something about this guy that gives me the willies. It may be the bizarre shit he says or a creeping feeling that he is running a con. I think this all started to pimp books, public speaking gigs, and television appearances as a post-retirement hobby/money maker as a wondrous biography much like Obama started off with. They ARE their biography and not a lot else. Now he is riding the tiger.

  113. Mormaer 5:56 There is something about this guy that gives me the willies.
    ————————————
    Ditto, and the first tangible evidence of that for me was the set of three Campaign GOTV postcards sent to me to mail to friends on his behalf. It is pictured at this twitter link with apologies; I don’t know how else to show you.

    http://twitter.com/viannahlee/status/661287002055294976

    Ben’s flag is reminiscent of the Obama one I got in 2012 which depicts Old Glory misshapen and melting, running away. Actually Ben’s is a lot like the one OFA 2012 campaign was selling until a possible reference to Benghazi was noted.

    That graphic of Carson’s face makes him look kind of Fu Manchu evil criminal genius with the wimpy beard-stach and squinty eyes! And bloody streaks as a symbol for a surgeon is not good. The subliminal message is awful. I think he has a clown posse from Baltimore running things for him while he is off doing “cool things” for retirement. Old weird Dr Ben is the outsiders outsider.

  115. I also think Trump set up Carson to lead the charge against the media who turned around and tried to kick his ass. Trump got want he wanted and Carson got the bad exposure and bruises. Trump 1, Carson 0 for taking the bait.

  116. Old weird Dr Ben is the outsiders outsider… Trump 1, Carson 0 for taking the bait
    —–
    lol… yup & ty for pointing that out.

  117. Well, Freedom gone viral:

    http://www.thefederalistpapers.org/us/professors-epic-class-intro-has-gone-viral-heres-why

    Welcome back to class, students! I am Mike Adams your criminology professor here at UNC-Wilmington. Before we get started with the course I need to address an issue that is causing problems here at UNCW and in higher education all across the country. I am talking about the growing minority of students who believe they have a right to be free from being offended. If we don’t reverse this dangerous trend in our society there will soon be a majority of young people who will need to walk around in plastic bubble suits to protect them in the event that they come into contact with a dissenting viewpoint. That mentality is unworthy of an American. It’s hardly worthy of a Frenchman.

    Let’s get something straight right now. You have no right to be unoffended. You have a right to be offended with regularity. It is the price you pay for living in a free society. If you don’t understand that you are confused and dangerously so. In part, I blame your high school teachers for failing to teach you basic civics before you got your diploma. Most of you went to the public high schools, which are a disaster. Don’t tell me that offended you. I went to a public high school.

    Of course, your high school might not be the problem. It is entirely possible that the main reason why so many of you are confused about free speech is that piece of paper hanging on the wall right over there. Please turn your attention to that ridiculous document that is framed and hanging by the door. In fact, take a few minutes to read it before you leave class today. It is our campus speech code. It specifically says that there is a requirement that everyone must only engage in discourse that is “respectful.” That assertion is as ludicrous as it is illegal. I plan to have that thing ripped down from every classroom on campus before I retire.

    One of my grandfathers served in World War I. My step-grandfather served in World War II. My sixth great grandfather enlisted in the American Revolution when he was only thirteen. These great men did not fight so we could simply relinquish our rights to the enemy within our borders. That enemy is the Marxists who run our public universities. If you are a Marxist and I just offended you, well, that’s tough. I guess they don’t make communists like they used to.

    Unbelievably, a student once complained to the Department chairwoman that my mention of God and a Creator was a violation of Separation of Church and State. Let me be as clear as I possibly can: If any of you actually think that my decision to paraphrase the Declaration of Independence in the course syllabus is unconstitutional then you suffer from severe intellectual hernia.

    Indeed, it takes hard work to become stupid enough to think the Declaration of Independence is unconstitutional. If you agree with the student who made that complaint then you are probably just an anti-religious zealot. Therefore, I am going to ask you to do exactly three things and do them in the exact order that I specify.

    First, get out of my class. You can fill out the drop slip over at James Hall. Just tell them you don’t believe in true diversity and you want to be surrounded by people who agree with your twisted interpretation of the Constitution simply because they are the kind of people who will protect you from having your beliefs challenged or your feelings hurt.

    Second, withdraw from the university. If you find that you are actually relieved because you will no longer be in a class where your beliefs might be challenged then you aren’t ready for college. Go get a job building houses so you can work with some illegal aliens who will help you gain a better appreciation of what this country has to offer.

    Finally, if this doesn’t work then I would simply ask you to get the hell out of the country. The ever-growing thinned-skinned minority you have joined is simply ruining life in this once-great nation. Please move to some place like Cuba where you can enjoy the company of communists and get excellent health care. Just hop on a leaky boat and start paddling your way towards utopia. You will not be missed.

  118. hold’em,

    Rush, bat shit crazy Shawn, and the other conservative radio talking heads are broadcasting their outrage about CNN’s investigation of Carson’s past in an effort to prove that reality matches his bio. From what I’ve seen, they are going a little overboard, but it seems as much intended to slam his religious beliefs as it does to discredit him. His claim that after three hours of prayer as a teenager, he no no longer had angry, violent tendencies seems to have really jerked CNN’s chain.

    The right-wing broadcasters claim – and rightly so – that CNN and the rest of MSM never investigated Obama. They mistakenly claim that they never investigated or slammed Hillary. As we know, they aired nothing but negative innuendo about her throughout her 2008 campaign. Anyway, there was no need for CNN to investigate her. The Republicans had already spent years investigating everything about her and Bill. There was nothing left to investigate. Well, at least not until they mistakenly thought they could use Benghazi and email “scandal” to finally, finally do her in. How’s that workin’ out for you Repugs?

    I think CNN is probably going after Carson on issues that don’t matter and for the wrong reasons. But, CNN’s lack of ethics and far left bias should be no surprise to anyone. It’s certainly not surprising to those of us who supported Hillary in 2008. CNN and the rest of Obamamedia helped put Obama in the WH, and they aided the DNC’s efforts to “defeat” Hillary.

  119. Damn! Excuse the typos. Partly the autocorrect. Partly my jacked-up contact lenses. CNN obviously is trying to prove that Carson’s bio is inaccurate, at best – a lie, at worst.

  120. Free, I appreciate your input as I’ve not followed the details of Carson’s latest episode.
    Of all the jackass claims they propped BHO up with, the worst and longest lasting is Quote: she voted for Iraq and he was “against it from beginning” unQuote. The ” ” holds his very words on his senate web site. The vote they talk of was several years before Barack even made it to DC. Yet the jacks still use it. An untold number of lies more, but that to me was clincher. I’ve hit media/DC with that undeniably inaccurate statement many times, many ways. Yet STILL hear it now and then.

    In New York City exist two of the most horrendous pro Obama pro Latino channels: NBC and PIX11. Their FCC licenses should have been jerked long ago. Yet Pat Battle yesterday raised her eyebrows when reporting that Carson suggested the pass O got. Seems it will never end.

    I keep putting this out, but this statement has no clout either:
    Bob Schieffer May 2015 at Fox after retiring:
    http://video.foxnews.com/v/4267140145001/bob-schieffer-signing-off/
    At the 2:58 mark: “Maybe we were not skeptical enough”

    I hope this video still works; for me it comes up weird on twitter.

    As for Ben, I am confused enough to cut off his allowance. I’d started it when he came out against Muslims in OO and wanted him to feel good about it. (I know. Get real.)

    Lu: a breath of fresh air from your find above.

  121. Last week NJ Democrats gained ground in the state govt.. This opinion is by the editorial board of a premier state newspaper and will remind us all of how sick Dims can be.

    It is the whole enchilada I’ve placed here; proceed with caution.

    Revel casino: A home for Syrian refugees? | Editorial
    By Star-Ledger Editorial Board The Star-Ledger
    on November 08, 2015 at 7:45 AM, updated November 08, 2015 at 9:00 AM
    A luxury casino sits dark, empty and glistening in Atlantic City, still shuttered more than a year after it closed.
    Meanwhile, across the world, Syrians are risking their lives to flee civil war, with nowhere else to go.

    This gives the owner of Revel an idea. Why not put the refugees up in his 1,000-plus vacant rooms?
    That’s one way to salvage a $2.4 billion white elephant. Give him this: The man has vision. It’s only the latest of several wild schemes Glenn Straub has proposed for the bankrupted casino, which he’s been trying to reopen since he bought it for pennies on the dollar in April
    There was the indoor water park, the medical tourism resort, the “tower of geniuses” think tank that would attract the world’s top minds – and his idea to blow up the building if his plans fail.

    This is just as far-fetched, but much more appealing. Revel is likely to remain vacant for at least a year and a half, Straub says, while he’s tied up in legal battles. All he asks is to be reimbursed for the cost of operating the building while the refugees are staying there.

    Is he just trying to get his utilities turned back on? Poking the bear by inviting refugees into the tourism district? Who cares? As quixotic as this sounds, he has the right idea. If we have all this available living space, why not use it for humanitarian purposes?
    Straub has unwittingly put his finger on the heart of the refugee problem: Despite the best intentions of charitable people here, the U.S. is not taking enough refugees, and the ones we are accepting are trapped in a bureaucratic bottleneck.

    This might actually be an option if the U.S. opened its arms and took in thousands more. But resettlement groups like Church World Service say we don’t have the numbers right now to make use of a large hotel. They’ve been arriving in a very small trickle.

    Meanwhile, the crisis has grown so much that a bolder step is needed — just this kind of out-of-the-box thinking. Before you dismiss Straub as crazy, remember: Back in the late 1990s, New Jersey was a refugee way station. Fort Dix was the entry point for 20,000 ethnic Albanian refugees from the war in Kosovo.

    In those years, America acted like a superpower. Refugees were greeted warmly. Today, we put them through all kinds of duplicative hurdles, even though the resettlement program is one of the most difficult ways to get to the United States — a highly unlikely route for terrorists.

    Congressman Bill Pascrell Jr. (D-NJ) has rightly called for the U.S. to take in more refugees and find ways to expedite the process. In his district of Paterson, Syrians with relatives fleeing war are ready to take them in tomorrow
    “This is not a question of practicality or physical space,” he said, “but a question of our will as Americans to help a people who are in dire need.”

    Someone needs to accept Straub’s offer, and make it work – if not for refugees, then a local charity. Perhaps some good could still come of this place where NFL player Ray Rice punched out his fiancé in an elevator. You have to be an optimist, after all, to invest in Atlantic City

    New Jersey was the recipient of a lot of refugees from WWI and WWII. That is how my grandparents ended up there. I grew up in the Atlantic City area. Atlantic City has always been the armpit of the area. That is why they tried to “fix” it with casinos. The rest of the area consists of some very fine beaches and depends on tourism for income. Not a good idea to put potentially dangerous people there as it could really hurt the economy.

    Most of the comments on the article are about the lack of background checks on these people and why are we not taking care of out homeless and vets, first. I say, send them to stay at the Whitehouse.

  123. Thanks Foxy for that wig SNL clip. I had no idea who Sia was so I went to youtube, found this song clip and I really like this song, but I was most amazed at the young child in her video.

    This child has incredibly beautiful martial arts moves! I put my son in martial arts classes while he was growing up, and I know how difficult timing and poise is with these moves.

  124. The vote they talk of was several years before Barack even made it to DC.

    ______________

    Yes!! I felt like I was in the twilight zone or something every time I heard (and still here) this idiotic statement. Of course he didn’t vote for it! He wasn’t there. Yet media and others repeated this as it were a valid point… Hell. If he had been in the senate at that time, , he would have probably just voted “present”.

    What a disservice the media have done this country. If Trump does nothing else, he has at least drawn attention to media bias and lies. At this point in our history, with media virtually selecting our leaders, whether DT is elected or not, he has already done a great service for this country.

  125. Trying not to stray too far.
    I just heard Bernie Sanders say Barry had campaigned for him in 2006.
    I found out by accident a few years back that Barry campaigned for PA Senator Casey in 2006.
    Just wondering how many more Democrats the Il Senator “helped” in 2006.

    Mad Cow says it is “strategy”. She never mentions BO.
