Update: Ferris Bueller never had a day as good as Trump did this Thursday and Friday. First, Big Media was forced, by the graphic nature of the attacks, to air what amounted to billions of dollars of free advertisements, disguised as news reports, for Donald J. Trump. Then on Friday the big news was billions more of free advertisements for Trump disguised as news reports about the current state of the disaster that is the Obama economy:
U.S. employers drastically slowed their hiring in May, adding just 38,000, the fewest in more than 5 years and a sign of concern after the economy barely grew in the first three months of the year.
At the same time, the unemployment tumbled to 4.7 percent from 5 percent, the Labor Department said Friday in its monthly unemployment report. The rate, to its lowest point since November 2007, fell for a problematic reason: Nearly a half-million jobless Americans stopped looking for work and so were no longer officially counted as unemployed.
Trump called this “terrible” and a “bombshell”. Hillary Clinton, whose campaign strategists only care about protection of Obama and giggle every time they realize they’ve maneuvered Hillary into an “Obama third term” election strategy, must have wept as she saw the ramifications of a report she flattered with the mild term “disappointing”:
With a Democrat in the White House, Clinton stands to pay the price, analysts said.
“If the economy gets worse, her fortunes get worse, no doubt about it,” said Patrick Egan, an associate professor of politics and public policy at New York University.
Clinton had been seen as benefiting from Obama’s recent improvement in public approval ratings. A deteriorating economy probably would cut into those ratings, and in turn Clinton’s standing with the public would most likely worsen. [snip]
In a poll released this week, Gallup said 53% of voters preferred Trump on the economy while 43% favored Clinton. And by a 52% to 41% margin, voters in a Quinnipiac University poll this week said Trump would be better than Clinton at creating jobs.
On Wednesday, Obama touted the economy in a speech in Elkhart, Ind. [snip]
“Yes, the numbers that had come out this week are disappointing to anybody because we want to keep jobs growing,” Clinton told CNN. [snip]
It’s likely that none of them expected May’s startlingly poor job creation.
“Not only was May itself weak, but the large downward revisions in March and April … have taken the Fed’s June rate hike off the table,” said Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at IHS Global Insight.
Fed Gov. Lael Brainard said Friday that the data in the latest jobs report “suggest that the labor market has slowed.”
The economy and Trump supporters took a beating this week at the hands of Obama thugs. On both issues Big Media had to air reports that amounted to billions of dollars of free advertisements for Trump, such as this beaut from ABC News:
If that wasn’t enough, this big election day Tuesday, there will be news from the courts on the email story which will dampen any election result good news:
Sullivan issued an order Friday postponing the deposition indefinitely, but also instructing Pagliano’s attorneys to explain the Fifth Amendment assertion and to file a copy of Pagliano’s agreement with the Justice Department by Tuesday afternoon. The judge did not say explicitly whether the filing would be public, but most court filings are.
“Counsel for Mr. Pagliano shall file a Memorandum of Law addressing the legal authority upon which Mr. Pagliano relies to assert his Fifth Amendment rights in this civil proceeding, including requisite details pertaining to the scope of Mr. Pagliano’s reported immunity agreement with the Government,” the judge wrote.
The new battle over Pagliano’s immunity agreement and its potential public disclosure is an unhelpful development for Clinton’s presidential campaign. A flurry of discussion over the details of the deal now seems imminent, along with implications that someone involved may have committed a crime, although no one has been charged.
A Clinton campaign spokesman declined to comment on the development.
In September, Pagliano asserted the Fifth Amendment when called before a private session of the House Benghazi Committee. At that time, Clinton’s camp called the decision “both understandable and disappointing.”
“Disappointing” in many ways.
Donald J. Trump had a great day yesterday. Yesterday, Hillary Clinton attacked Trump brutally:
Trump’s response? Trump did not address Hillary’s attack substantively. Instead, Trump, wisely, for the benefit of his campaign we believe, mostly attacked Hillary on her delivery of the speech such as her reliance on a TelePrompTer.
Why was Trump wise to not address Hillary’s critique on a point by point basis? Because Hillary’s problem right now is Bernie Sanders not Trump. Yesterday a poll published today indicates Bernie Sanders one point above Hillary in California – a state Hillary was supposed to win easily and grandly. Hillary Clinton attacks against Donald Trump only serve at this point to infuriate further Bernie Sanders supporters who don’t like Hillary ignoring Saint Bernard and presuming she has the nomination in hand even though as of today the battle is not yet over until Bernie Sanders and his band of kooks surrender. Hillary does herself no favors with Sanders’ supporters when she ignores Sanders to attack Trump.
Hillary is in an untenable position. Trump and Bernie Sanders are now in a “Punch and Judy” Grand Guignol farcical comedy with each one of them taking turns throwing a punch at the befuddled Judy. As we wrote on the day after the Indiana primary, Hillary Clinton is caught in a crossfire:
Hillary2016 tries to combat the Bernie Sanders crowd with a focus against nominee Trump but the problem is that then Sanders is free to attack. Hillary2016 will be caught in a crossfire. That’s always an ugly position to be in because it is an indefensible dugout with grenades falling in all the time.
Hillary Clinton attacked Donald Trump yesterday then Bernie Sanders attacked Hillary Clinton. It’s the crossfire:
Sanders jabs at Clinton’s foreign policy credentials following speech
Bernie Sanders took a swipe at Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy credentials on Thursday in the wake of her speech attacking Donald Trump’s proposals.
“I agree with Secretary Clinton that Donald Trump’s foreign policy ideas are incredibly reckless and irresponsible,” Sanders said in a statement. “But when it comes to foreign policy, we cannot forget that Secretary Clinton voted for the war in Iraq, the worst foreign policy blunder in modern American history, and that she has been a proponent of regime change, as in Libya, without thinking through the consequences.”
All’s fair in political love and political war. Trump himself has been using Bernie Sanders to crossfire attack Hillary Clinton:
Donald Trump is using Bernie Sanders’ words to rip Hillary Clinton
Donald Trump lashed out at Hillary Clinton in a statement on Thursday evening, claiming that the Democratic presidential frontrunner has “bad judgment” and is unfit to be president.
Trump’s statement comes after Clinton criticized the presumptive Republican presidential nominee in a CNN interview earlier the same day.
In the interview, Clinton called Trump’s positions “potentially dangerous” and concluded that he is not qualified to be president. [snip]
“The fact that Hillary thinks the temporary Muslim ban, which she calls the ‘Muslim ban,’ promotes terrorism, proves Bernie Sanders was correct when he said she is not qualified to be President,” Trump fired back in his statement. “She has bad judgment and is unfit to serve as President at this delicate and difficult time in our country’s history.”
Look at the carnage all over the world including the World Trade Center, San Bernardino, Paris, the USS Cole, Brussels and an unlimited number of other places. She and our totally ignorant President won’t even use the term Radical Islamic Terrorism. And by the way, ask Hillary who blew up the plane last night – another terrible, but preventable tragedy.
A crossfire is a classic military tactic that is difficult to counteract. It was entirely predictable and we predicted it. In political warfare the victim of the crossfire tries to defend against an attack only to find another attack from another direction. A defense or offense becomes near impossible.
Yesterday Hillary attacked Trump, then Sanders attacked Hillary, then Trump attacked Hillary. Then the worst happened to Hillary – thugs attacked Trump supporters in San Jose, California. Let’s go to the sleaze:
Trump Supporter Left Bleeding After Being Attacked By Mob Outside San Jose Rally
Violence escalated in San Jose Thursday night when a group of at least 100 anti-Trump protesters attacked people leaving a Donald Trump rally. Tom Llamas of ABC News, who Trump called a sleaze on Monday, Tweeted from the scene that tonight was “the most violent demonstration we’ve seen” in this election so far.
Hillary attacked Trump, Bernie attacked Hillary, Trump attacked Hillary, then thugs attacked Trump supporters. Winner? Donald J. Trump. The nasty thug attacks against Trump supporters aid Trump. For those that don’t understand why, we explained why when thugs shut down a Trump rally in Chicago:
We’re not surprised, but we are disgusted. Every decent person should be disgusted and no one surprised. We’ve seen this before. Chicago 1968.
The streets of Chicago smelled of riot in 1968. Young white people mostly, protested a far off war that made less and less sense as the loses in lives and treasure increased daily. The vast “silent majority” was disgusted both with the stupidity of the war as well as the vagrant mobs that burned the flag and mocked much of what the “silent majority” believed in. Labor unions found themselves in turmoil as the workers strayed to the Republican Party in a cosmic roar heard by few except those that listened.
The self righteous on the left, prodded by well financed totalitarian organizers, continue to believe that childish antics on the street which feed their egos have no consequence except those they desire. In 1968 the consequences of street riots came in November.
Chants of “Make California Mexico Again” do not help against Trump.

The police doing nothing to protect and serve Americans attacked by illegal aliens does not hurt Trump’s campaign.

American women attacked by Mexican flag carrying thugs is a threat Trump has been warning against.

The thugs repeatedly attacked Trump supporters in an American street, attacked Trump supporters in their cars, and the police did nothing. It was a day the Trump message and Trump warnings came to a YouTube and Twitter near you:

An American flag was burned as Mexican flags waved. Even the brain dead at CNN remarked that the “tolerance” demanded by the totalitarian left does not include tolerance for the supporters of a major party presidential candidate.
Today, the Trump warnings and message are played out worldwide in every Big Media forum. It’s as if Donald J. Trump spent billions on ceaseless ads before the California vote this coming Tuesday:
SAN JOSE (CBS) — A few hundred protesters fought with supporters of Donald Trump after the presidential candidate’s rally in San Jose Thursday night.
Over a dozen fights broke out in the crowd.
Punches were thrown, violence erupted. Even police had to retreat. [snip]
Protesters followed Trump supporters to their cars as they left the convention center. Around the corner and away from police protection on San Carlos Street, a mob mentality took over.
A young man wearing a “Build The Wall” T-shirt was assaulted by several young men. Fearing for the man’s safety, KPIX reporter Len Ramirez yelled at him to get away.
For several minutes, there was no police presence and protesters thumped Trump supporters’ cars in the parking garage as they tried to leave.
Outside again, there was another assault, and another. Street fights broke out on Almaden Avenue.
Andrew Acevedo, of Redwood City, said he was assaulted several times while getting stuck inside the anti-Trump protest rally.
As police tried to restore order protesters forced a police pickup to retreat.
Police lines formed again, but the crowds only grew.
Another young man was chased down like prey. He ran until finding some police officers who stopped his attackers.
Some protesters grabbed Trump hats and tried to burn them, while others banged on the cars of supporters trying to leave the rally.
Police declared the gathering an unlawful assembly about 30 minutes after the rally ended.
You could almost hear Trump say “The wall just got ten feet higher.”
Today, Donald J. Trump will have an even better day. Hillary Clinton’s well prepared attack against Donald Trump is eclipsed by the well prepared terror attacks against Donald J. Trump supporters. Today the attacks against Trump supporters will play over and over again in Big Media as Trump once again uses the Big Media that hates him to win.
The wall just got twenty feet higher.
