Uncivil Wars: #PrimaryDay For #Hillary2016 @RealDonaldTrump @Bernie Sanders

We have not written about the June political earthquake. We will write about the earthquake soon, but not today. Today we look at the convulsions afflicting the two major political parties in America.

Tonight we will watch to see if the voters in the states that vote today will still come out for Donald J. Trump even though Trump won the GOP nomination long ago.

Tonight we will chortle as the Republican establishment continues to seethe as all their attacks cannot deny Trump the nomination. The more the Republican establishment attacks “racist” Trump the more likely Trump might decide to run the general election campaign against the Republican leadership and fools such as Paul Ryan, not just the Democrats and Big Media. We’ll watch as Trump makes his moves and the GOP establishment attempts a scorched earth battle to destroy the choice of millions of Republican voters who disobeyed the Republican dictatorship. The GOP establishment cannot stop Trump. But the GOP establishment will try to keep control of the party even though the voters aligned with that party have rejected the GOP establishment entirely.

Tonight we will watch to see if Bernie Sanders turns into Carly Fiorina or Ted Cruz. We recall Ted Cruz declared on the day Indiana voted he would never quit only to quit later that day. We recall Carly Fiorina who declared she would never quit on the day she lost New Hampshire, only to announce she quit the next day. Maybe Bernie will quit. But we doubt it.

Bernie Sanders is a socialist who never ran as a Democrat. Bernie Sanders is a disheveled old coot full of putrid vinegar, who wants to be a broken down latter day Che Guevara and does not give a toke about the party from which he demands the nomination. Bernie Sanders wants to make the Obama Dimocrat Party even more of a left wing nuthouse than it already is. Bernie Sanders is the guy it has taken Hillary Clinton the entire primary season to fail to bury.

Bernie Sanders in many ways is the winner of the Democratic Party primary. Usually primaries choose the leader not just of the ticket but of the direction the party wishes to take. This year Bernie Sanders will not win the nomination but he did determine the direction the party will take.

We still doubt Hillary Clinton will be the party nominee. We hear that Obama will endorse Hillary as early as tomorrow and we hear that Obama wants to get back on the campaign trail. We don’t doubt Obama wants to begin to campaign but we wonder for whom. We’ll wait to see what happens at the convention even as the AP declares Hillary has the delegate votes she needs to be the nominee.

We’ll watch the primary results from tonight to see what happens. Will Trump turnout be tops? Will Sanders win anything tonight? Will Hillary woo Bernie Sanders’ brigades or will she just race-bait Trump?

We’ll watch tonight. But we already know the results that matter.

What matters tonight? The Republican establishment is still at war with Trump. Trump won the nomination and the hearts of the voters. But the establishment is resentful and will continue to attack Trump at every turn and every chance.

What matters tonight? Hillary Clinton will have on paper the delegates she needs to be the nominee. But Hillary got her many delegates not be defeating Bernie Sanders but by avoiding the fight she should have fought. Hillary Clinton should have make the case against socialism and the Bernie Sanders leftward lurch. But Hillary has garnered more delegates that Bernie Sanders only because of her surrender in the battle of ideas.

American democracy is in upheaval. The dogs refuse to eat the dog food served up by the establishments of the two major political parties.

The two major political parties have found out dogs bite.

  1. http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/clinton-official-confirms-immunity-agreement-court-filing/

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today announced that Clinton email witness Bryan Pagliano attorneys confirm for the first time that Mr. Pagliano has “use” immunity agreements with federal prosecutors investigating the Clinton email matter. The admission comes in a court filing filed at 4:55 pm:

    In December 2015, Mr. Pagliano proffered testimony to the DOJ in connection with an ongoing DOJ investigation. A short time later, Mr. Pagliano and the DOJ entered into an agreement granting Mr. Pagliano limited “use” and “derivative use” immunity consistent with 18 U.S.C. § 6001 et seq. for that testimony and other testimony offered in connection with the same investigation. In response to the Court’s Order, Mr. Pagliano has today filed copies of his use immunity agreements with the Government, with a Motion asking the Court to maintain those documents ex parte and under seal.

    Mr. Pagliano is the Clinton State Department IT political appointee who reportedly provided support for the Clinton email system.

    “It is unfortunate the public’s right to know is being hampered,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These court filings are further evidence of the legal mess caused by Mrs. Clinton’s email system.”

    Last week, Judge Sullivan issued a court order by requiring Pagliano to produce any reported immunity agreement and identify the legal basis for the Fifth Amendment claims he plans to assert in Judicial Watch’s discovery into the Clinton email system. The order delays Mr. Pagliano’s deposition, which had been scheduled for Monday, June 6.

    Yup, he’s toast. It’s so hopeless I could cry.😂

  3. Trump’s speech is very stilted tonight. He’s reading from a TeleprompTer.

    What is interesting is that he is doing an all out assault against “the politicians”. Trump says “the politicians” have rigged the system. Trump did not distinguish from Democratic or Republican politicians.

    After that attack on “the politicians” Trump turned to a brief attack against the Clintons.

  4. yes, he is on teleprompter…but he is back on message and running and sounding like a man running for President…

    music to my ears…

  5. Fwhat do you think is up Admin.
    Heard the traitors gave him 3 weeks to “get it together “or else”…

    They still have some assine plan to take his nomination away somehow and lose on “high moral ground”, cough cough, I think.
    They dont care as long as the money keeps coming in.

    Assualt American citizens you illegal La Raza trash, as they play Sargent Schultz, “I see nothing, I hear nothing”…

    Asswipes…I hate them all..😰

  6. this is what the people care about…and what will continue to attract more people to him…he is back to “we” not “I”

  7. S

    Thats NOT what got him the support he has. Let Trump be Trump.

    It’s time to tear these parties apart.

  8. i don’t understand what you mean gonzo

    it seems to me that donald has people supporting him because they believe he is going to make the changes he is exposing about trade, jobs, immigration and the dirty little insider game…go after the clintons and rigged systems, etc…people believe he is going to blow up the status quo…

    imho…people believing that Donald is going to fight for them is the key…

    as far as i am concerned he is back on track for the national debate and issues and will now start drawing contrasts between himself and Hillary and O…

    Trump U was a waste of valuable time and going nowhere

    Donald has to expand his base if he is going to win…not alienate possible voters

  9. S,

    Dont tnink it wad a waste of time. He pointed out to tbe American people how rigged tbe system is. Just try to present a case against a black with a white judge who belongs to the KKK and see the rioting.

    Now the shitheads La Raza have begun to be exposed for the racist assholes they are.

    Blood in the streets and our legal system…

    Thank you Mr Trump for showing America what lies behind this putrid system and what these thugs really want…

    Truth is the minorities want White people eliminated. Cezar Chavez himself refused to join La Raza, he knew it was anti white and called it what it was, a racist organization, but he also said it wont stop there, it will be anti Black, then anti Asian, etc ect. It is purely for the Hispanics and tbey literally believe they are entitled to 8 states, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Colorado, Washington and Oregon…

  10. btw…gonzo when i say back on message that means Trump being Trump…his message…Make America Great Again…America First and all other things he talks about are Trump…

    38,000 jobs, Ocare costs skyrocketing,

    Trump turning to Hillary in a debate and asking her to justify the ongoing “trade deficits” and ask how losing billions and billions of dollars to other countries while they continue to take our jobs is a good record???

    Donald has so much “material” to work with…not even mentioning all Hillary’s other problems

    his power is in talking directly to the people… (voters)

  11. Hillary is going to win California big time.

    California is a state of fools..

    Game on obama clone.

  12. It was a very strong night for Hillary. I am surprised at how well she is doing. Despite some of our differences here, we can all be proud that a woman made it as a presidential nominee of a major party.
    Trump’s most effective weapon imo is Ivanka. She is extremely bright, gives a sense of calmness and class, and I think she could help reassure those who think Trump is anti-woman.

  13. Jb,

    Why in the world would I celebrate a clone of obama?

    You amaze me…really!

    The truth of who hillary really is, and for that matter Bill, is disgusting. Really,had no idea the scam they have bestowed on this Country. The millions they have made off the backs of Americans is unforgivable IMHO.

    I love my Country and I am so angry I could scream.

    If this narccistic globalist wins, America, the reality and the dream is over.

    But boy, wont you be proud…

  14. GonzoTx, nothing is up. We see AceofSpades is spinning fantasies, even after the French surrender, about getting rid of Trump at the convention. It’s a fantasy because there is no anti-Trump candidate left even though there has been a very public search for one. Hillary faces a threat because there are long knives out for her (notice Pelosi waited to endorse Hillary until today and Gore is still AWOL and any one who think Obama doesn’t have something up his sleeve slept through 2008) and vast numbers of the party rank and file have rejected her message in favor of the leftist tug of Sanders.

    Some quick impressions from tonight: Hillary gave a terrific speech and finally got in a good response to “Make America Great Again” saying it is code for “let’s go back”. By comparison Trump’s speech was weak and not particularly spirited.

    The reason for this is that Hillary was in a celebratory mood and now assumes the campaign will become a “normal” campaign in which she will have the experienced advantage. Trump on the other hand caved to a prepared speech which is not as spirited as a usual Trump speech. Both speeches were flawed because they are unrealistic.

    Hillary’s speech was unrealistic because the campaign to come will not be “normal” in any sense for either of the two parties.

    Trump’s speech was unrealistic because Trump’s campaign staff wants to avoid the obvious. The obvious in this case is that Trump represents a mortal threat to the GOP establishment whether he likes it or not. Trump should continue to fight the GOP establishment not try to appease or work with the GOP establishment. Trump should beat the sh*t out of Ryan and kick him out of the convention.

  15. Bernie Sanders at his speech says he will fight until the convention. When he mentioned Hillary’s name there were many boos, without Sanders calling for the crowd to stop the booing.

    Maybe he’ll get off the bong tomorrow and quit. But as of tonight, it’s still a fight.

  16. Sanders just gave speech in Santa Monica which was expected to be a concession speech, but he didn’t follow the script. He told the enthusiastic crowd he would fight on. Next primary is D.C. next Tuesday.

    Do you think Obama can still convince enough of the superdelegates to withdraw their support for her then on the first round of voting?

  18. “we can all be proud that a woman made it as a presidential nominee of a major party.”

    Holy shit…REALLY??!! A traitorous lying “person” got the nom, and we should be proud because it’s a woman? That’s leftist bullshit rhetoric and the same crap from 2008 when we were supposed to be so proud just because we elected a half black (Muslim) president. Look what that got us? I am not proud, but flat out ashamed that Americans are so blind as to give Hillary the nod. Put the “woman card” back in the deck and be proud because of the person, not because of genitals.

  19. I heard that Hillary said, Trump wants to go back to an economy that no longer exits and can not be obtained again..paraphrasing. …
    I think that concession by her that the economy, hers, Obama and the Democratic parties. ..has failed…and I think that’s a monstrous confession she will regret.

  20. …and if anyone is proud of Hillary after all we’ve learned about her over the past year, I feel sorry for you.

  21. According to CNN, Trump now has a total of 1541 delegates, 1415 of whom are bound to him and 1237 delegates are needed for him to win in the first round, so he definitely will win it with his bound delegates alone. Hillary on the other hand has a total of 2630 delegates, 572 of whom are super delegates. She needs a total of 2383 of them to win the nomination, which means that Obama will need to turn 248 of those super delegates to prevent her from getting the nomination.

  22. Trump should beat the sh*t out of Ryan and kick him out of the convention.

    What we said in 2008 namely that if now is the time for the first black president, let us at least be sure that he is the right black president.

    Same thing applies here. The thinking voter needs to decide which is more important–gender or everything else.

    LaRaza, both in my direct experience and from tales of others, is a system of bribes and terror. They bring the system of graft from Latin America and old Spain into our government and businesses. Of course Dems like Obama would approve as it is a system much like set up in Chicago. They want go away money, no work jobs, seats on commisssions, no bid contracts for their buds (who are giving them a cut), rent a mobs, rigged elections, friendly with narcos, etc. One of their big pushes in Texas was to get non-qualified “students” into and graduated from law schools so they could get in on lawfare scams. Of course not all Hispanic lawyers are scammers but a lot of them are. It is one of the reasons that south Texas cannot keep physicians or businesses open unless they pay them off. When they infiltrate a government body (counties and cities) they give themselves huge salaries and family members crooked contracts.

    They are parasitic. And if you don’t go along with their extortion they will run you out of business. The social and “educational” side is Reconquista crap they spew to suck in the dopes to do their bidding. Periodically they get cleaned out and sent to prison in Texas and the towns or counties will recover financially for a while until the next set come in to rob it. It is a organized crime syndicate. It is about getting paid and controlling the peons who pay and pay and pay. Now they have judges. They want open borders to have plenty of saps to milk and are easier to control because they are used to it in Mexico and other countries south. Now La Raza is getting examined even though both Dems and Repubs are screaming. Too late. The San Jose rent a mob had LaRaza crap on their placards and up to their old stunts.

    Absolutely, positively brilliant analysis.

    The “nexus” between:

    a. This judge

    b. La Raza

    c. The attacks on American citizens

    d. Under the nose of the sheriff

    e. In a sanctuary city

    Is now clear.

    People will say that is unfair.

    This judge had no knowledge.

    That is the beauty of conspiracy doctrine.

    A co conspirator can be held liable

    For the actions of a co conspirator

    Who he does not know and has no knowledge of his actions

    This judge should have recused himself sua sponte—on his own motion.

    Failure to do gives rise to an inference of impropriety and the appearance of impropriety.

  25. Video of Trump speech last night in Westchester, NY. It starts about 42:00 minutes in.
    Yes, the speech is stilted and canned. BTW, check out the body language of Ivanka. She looks like she is on the verge of tears throughout the entire speech.

    https://youtu.be/xtUIdUYYx2w

  26. Agreed to those who posted, let Trump be Trump. Do not try to appease the establishment bullshit.

    GRIDLOCK ALERT: President Obama Visiting NYC Today
    (Thursday, March 1st, 2012 12:05 PM)
    President Barack Obama is headed to town this afternoon for a fundraising sweep following a day trip to New Hampshire.
    As usual, his visit will likely mean traffic tie-ups in Manhattan.
    The president is scheduled to arrive at John F. Kennedy Airport at 4 p.m.
    He’s set to attend an event at a private residence around 5 p.m.
    After that he will head to the Flatiron District for a fundraising dinner at ABC Kitchen, followed by another event at a private residence.
    Among those hosting the president is interior designer Michael Smith, who redecorated the White House living quarters.

    6/8/16. Sessions Issues Warning for Ryan, GOP “ACCEPT the Will of the American People” or YOU’RE FIRED!

    Jeff Sessions has a warning for Paul Ryan and Republican leaders who won’t get behind Donald Trump: They’ll struggle to hold onto their jobs.
    In an interview with Politico’s podcast “Off Message” posted on Tuesday, the Alabama Republican — who in February became the first U.S. senator to endorse Trump — said that the billionaire has become the face of the Republican party, and it was time for the House speaker (and others who were resisting) to accept that.
    “I think [Ryan] needs to recognize, on some of these issues, Trump is where the Republicans are, and if you’re going to be a Republican leader, you should be supportive of that,” Sessions said. “My advice is to listen and accept the will of the American people, the Republican voters — the Republican Party is the Republican voters….”

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

    the bottom line, imho, regarding Donald’s stilted, teleprompter speech…is Donald did what Donald needed to do at this moment in time…

    I am in agreement with tearing down BOTH corrupt establishment parties, however Donald needs to tread his needle so that while he fights against the establishment…he continues to expand his base with independents, more republicans and dems in revolt…

    whether “we” like it or not it becomes much harder for him to do when all the noise…on all the airwaves…are DEFINING Donald Trump as a Racist…nonstop

    there was no benefit for him to continue on with a story about his business civil suit that was consuming his pursuit for President of the USA…Donald did the right thing…and I would not be one bit surprised if Ivanka and Melania had the most influence on him…

    I think we all agree that a key to winning is to define yourself and not let your opponents…or in this case…massive opponents define you…and heaven knows, stop digging when you are assisting them…

    imo…Donald did the right thing…and while he was still blunt in speaking out to many factions, i believe he realized he had to pivot to NEW voters…he has now finished the primaries with the record of most votes ever for any republican…

    now he has to go after and compete for all those other voters mentioned above…he has to be in charge of defining himself…

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

    and for some that have mentioned they do not watch TV, etc…let me be a messenger to tell you Donald is getting KILLED on TV and defined as a racist…nonstop

    just one small example of, imo, one of the worst blowhards on TV, Joe S on MJ…
    while just weeks ago Joe S and Mika loved DT, now they are on daily rampage to bully all their guests to admit that DT is a racist

    OK, you say, so what is new…

    Admin, you may have noticed this, now Joe S is a one man army out there to actually turn Donald into David Duke…any comparison or rationalization made by a guest on behalf of DT is turned into a similarity to David Duke…and Joe S is strategically repeating this over and over again to make Donald into David Duke

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

    as is reported, Donald is planning on giving a speech about the Clintons next week…sounds like he is going to take it to Hillary

    does anyone here really believe instead he should continue the story about the judge?

  33. Yes, I won. But one more such victory and I will be kaput.

    I am asking myself why did I get depressed yesterday.

    We need to let Donald be Donald.

    But he must learn to pick his battles, rather than take his eye off the ball, and give the enemies of the republic an opening to destroy him—and us.

    Well, when I get to feeling this way, I wait to hear what the wise men/women have to say about this. They are, in no particular order, Admin, Richard Fernandez and Roger Simon has to say about it. (I would sooner put a bullet in my head than listen to the tripe of big media, whose partisanship is open, notorious, shameless in the extreme.)

    Here is what Roger Simon said this morning–after he said something I would have taken his head off if he had said it in 2008, but something I have since discovered through my own research is unequivocally true. For in every conceivable way, Hillary 16 is the antithesis of Hillary 08. She is the third term of Obama, and everything sane productive people fought against. On character issues, she is Lady MacBeth. On policy she is the female face of the NWO.

    Here is the salient paragraph: “he (Trump) is our only hope against Hillary Clinton, who, if elected, has absolutely no chance of bringing our country together because she will be inaugurated with nearly half the country thinking she should have been indicted. That is an almost untenable situation for a democratic society that is supposed to be governed by the rule of law—a criminal becoming president.”

    Will Trump’s Signal-to-Noise Problem Sink Him and Us?
    BY ROGER L SIMON JUNE 7, 2016 CHAT 217 COMMENTS

    Does Donald Trump really want to be president?

    Ask me a couple of weeks ago, when he was riding high, closing in the polls, and I would have rolled my eyes in disbelief at the question. Now I’m not so sure. I wrote long ago the presidency was Trump’s to lose. I meant it then and I mean it now—only Trump can bring down Trump. Unfortunately, he’s doing it. His signal-to-noise problem is getting the better of him. He doesn’t know where to pick a fight, so he’s doing it everywhere.

    And it’s hard to believe he’s doing it when his hugely tarnished opponent, Hillary Clinton—just announced by the AP as having magically sewn up the nomination before Tuesday’s California primary—is so easy to beat. You really do have to wonder if Trump wants to win the presidency—or just to “be right” in every conceivable argument, even, and especially, those he shouldn’t be having.

    If it’s the latter, he is truly betraying his supporters, the country and ultimately himself in a big way. Trump has said—in an interview with Megyn Kelly and elsewhere—that if he loses, his entire candidacy will have been a complete waste of time and money. He wouldn’t have done anything. He couldn’t be more right on that one. And not just for him.

    But what do I mean about this signal-to-noise problem? I don’t believe that Trump is a racist or a sexist, but his inability to distinguish between what’s important and what’s not, his confusion of signal and noise that propels him into making accusations and arguments he shouldn’t, makes him seem like one or, at the very least, gives his adversaries plenty of ammunition to convince people of it.

    His comments about Judge Curiel presiding over the”Trump University” lawsuit are an obvious case in point. Practically the first thing out of Trump’s mouth was the judge was a “Mexican” whom Donald would pursue legally if he (Trump) were elected president. What an absolutely dopey thing to say! And then he doubled down on it, until Bill O’Reilly gave him a chance to wiggle ever so slightly out. (Whether Trump knows it or not, O’Reilly is his best friend at the moment.) Trump’s behavior in this instance is the reaction of a man who’s not thinking, just talking, and WAY over-concerned about defending every little thing—the signal-to-noise problem. He just can’t tell the difference. That may make sense on a building site, but the world is not a building site. Things take precedence, especially for a president.

    “Trump U” is noise, particularly if you treat it that way. If you make a big deal out of it, it ceases to be noise and becomes a serious problem. And what is “Trump U” really? One of dozens of Trump businesses. Some were successful, some less so. A few, like “Trump U,” pushed the “dodgy” envelope. But it’s nowhere near as dodgy as the Clinton Foundation that dealt and deals with hundreds of millions from foreign powers. The Clinton Foundation is the signal; Trump U is the noise. Donald should concentrate on that, but he doesn’t.

    He should be talking about the incredibly bad job numbers (and the lies about them) and the complete failure of the Obama economy or the reports of terrorists coming across our Southern border and instead he’s talking about Judge Curiel. How dumb is that!

    Donald claims he wishes it were otherwise, but the fault is his. He started it — even if the judge really is biased, and he very well may be. There were other, more intelligent, ways to deal with it (like lawyers).

    As one who has been a reluctant Trump supporter, I yearn to be a full-throated one, but just as I am prepared to do so, he prevents me by making some absurd assertion that usually has little to do with the job at hand or undermines it. I know I’m far from the only one who feels that way. Many undoubtedly do. Sometimes I am on the verge of giving up on him.

    Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham Attack Trump on Judge
    But he is our only hope against Hillary Clinton, who, if elected, has absolutely no chance of bringing our country together because she will be inaugurated with nearly half the country thinking she should have been indicted. That is an almost untenable situation for a democratic society that is supposed to be governed by the rule of law—a criminal becoming president. The results of this are unpredictable and scary and reason the #NeverTrump people should think through their position. (This assumes, of course, that Hillary is not indicted. If she is, the proverbial bets are off. Despite her already having “won,” Bernie Sanders, you can be sure, is staying in this to the convention to find out.)

    One of Trump’s problems is he seems to underestimate his supporters. He thinks he has to throw them red meat all the time, when he doesn’t. He’s already made all those points he needed to. Trump has a grave responsibility to the citizens of this country right now, but I don’t think he quite gets how serious it is. I have seen him several times on the stump and, although he’s very engaging, he acts like a man who is tickled pink by all the adulation but hasn’t quite grokked what is being conferred on him. This is the presidency of the United States. The time for a little gravitas is now, not at the inauguration. Otherwise there will be no inauguration.

  34. With nearly 2500 delegates behind him, Trump must NOT allow Ryan to be Convention Chairman. The man behind Ryan is Gingrich, another NWO agent. The Las Vegas casino magnate offered Trump $200 million to make Gingrich his vp. Much to his credit, Trump refused. Sessions should be the guy. This dalliance with the LaRaza judge has produced a big media blowback which may compel him to select an Hispanic, but the only obvious choices, Rubio and Cruz are also agents of NWO. Joni Ernst is another possibility. I have no idea about her one way or the other.

    fwiw…Expressive and quick-witted, Gemini represents two different sides of personality and you will never be sure with whom you will face. Gemini can be sociable,communicative and ready for fun, while on the other hand it can be very serious, thoughtful, restless and even indecisive.

    unpredicable…

    (for fun I looked at his chart…he has great leadership energy and a lot of compassion…strong Leo (leadership) Libra (uniter) Cancer (compassion and sensitivity)

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

    the Donald has two opposing, unpredicable sides to his personality…now would be a good time to let the smart, serious leader out with full force

    let Trump be Trump can be complicated, there really is more than one side of him…now is the time for Donald to put the big boy pants on and pivot to someone MORE people conceive as their President…it is not too much to ask that Donald give some reassurance and introduce himself to people that barely know him…and all they hear nonstop on TV is that he is a racist…

  36. Of course the RINO in Congress are beside themselves with the LaRaza stuff on that freak judge. They approved him and put him in the federal judiciary for “diversity” instead of competency. He is a third rate hack. They didn’t vet him. He was picked for a reason. He is from Chicago back in the day. Another radical Obama has embedded into the government with the help of the lazy stupid morons in Congress. If they “go there” they expose themselves for the ball-less wonders and collaborators that they are. These globalist shills like Gingrich and Ryan have the same bosses that the LaRaza horde have namely Davos attendee bankers. The difference is that the GOPe are the mouthpieces and LaRaza are the cannon fodder. Paul Ryan acted scared and had his ass chewed off so he went off the deep end. What a lying self-righteous tool.

  37. good one Foxy…a great omelette…yes

    now it is time for me to go whip off some calories at the gym…

  38. Wbboei, After reading what you and Mormaer wrote I believe that it was not a mistake for Donald Trump to have delivered to LaRaze, in the person of Judge Curiel, a huge wack to to the head.

    No one can tell me the Clintons, the democrats, the neo-cons and the GOPe did not have a whole long summer and fall of ankle biting over Trump U ready to distract Donald Trump planned using this more then willing judge.

    Look how Paul Ryan and McConnell already handed Hillary and the democrats a ready-made ad about the racist Trump and the poor judge from Indiana.

    Stuff like that would have gone on all summer and fall. Now Donald Trump has hopefully checkmated them.

    LaRaza is a corrupt organization, as Mormaer says, and you seem to agree, and corrupt organizations do not like to be confronted head on in broad day light. I think they will now try to avoid closer scrutiny.

    By the way, somewhere this morning I saw research that seems to show the LaRaza Judge from Indiana is an anchor baby.

  39. As I posted previously, I am not confident Hillary will ultimately remain the nominee. The email and FBI investigation are looming, and Obama is no friend. I did, however, take great pleasure in watching her defeat sanders whom I dislike for many reasons. Trump is Trump and while he has quite frankly pulled off the most unexpected victory in modern politics, I would like to see him cool it with some of the more inflammatory personal attacks on Bill and Hillary. I also want to see how Hillary handles the parties anti-Israeli platform and I have plenty time to make my final decision which could be voting for no one.

  40. Jb,

    His attacks are only going to get stronger and really pointed. You may want to turn your TV off.

    And Hillary deserves every word of it.

    Amazing to be lectured on ethics by someone under investigation by the FBI…

  41. Hmmm. I think you mentioned earlier your wife was able to make a decision based on the existing evidence and chose Trump. She sounds pretty smart.

  42. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/fbi-records-from-clintons-email-server-being-held-as-evidence/article/2593333

    FBI agents have confirmed that they recovered records from Hillary Clinton’s private server and other electronic devices, but won’t reveal any details about those records because that information is being treated as “evidence” in a “pending investigation.”

    “[A]ll of the materials retrieved from any electronic equipment obtained from former Secretary Clinton for the investigation are evidence, potential evidence, or information that has not yet been assessed for evidentiary value,” the FBI said in documents filed with a federal court Monday.

    snip

    The FBI argued that disclosing even the number of records it has pulled off Clinton’s server, thumb drive or other unnamed devices “could reasonably lead to the public identification and compromising of potential witnesses, as well as defensive actions to conceal activities, elude detection, and/or suppress or fabricate evidence.”

    The details were revealed through filings in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Vice News against the FBI in search of records related to its investigation of Clinton’s private email use.

    While the FBI asked a federal judge to allow it to keep information about its probe secret, including a pair of emails sent between FBI and State Department officials, the law enforcement agency did reveal its investigation is focused on a “security referral made for counterintelligence purposes” by the inspector general of the intelligence community.

    That detail was the latest to undermine Clinton’s repeated argument that the investigation is a routine “security review,” and suggests the FBI is looking into the specific mishandling of classified intelligence.

    snip

  43. As a supporter of Donald Trump…the other thing that I would ask of him is to brush up on the issues…as in, study up on who some of the players are and other issues that are very likely to pop up in a debate…

    we know Hillary is a policy wonk and she can try to make Donald look uniformed…I truly hope that prior to and as the debates approach someone…please someone…is briefing Donald about things that for all practical purposes might not have been on his radar while he was hard at work with his businesses…

    please do not plan on ‘winging it’…that works with 14 other people on the stage…it won’t with only two…especially these two…

  44. I hope JB & Shadowfax are factoring this info in their analysis…because there is going to be a lot more of it with Hillary…a big, big price to pay on the basis of the “first female President”

    if we have 4 or 8 more years of this, not only will we will be stone cold broke as a country but all our services will be overwhelmed, schools, etc and our country will never be the same…just look at what is going on in our streets now…and the O and Hillary admin do not even bat an eye as American citizens are attacked in broad daylight and even killed…

    I have been in a total panic since the Mexican judge business. I too have been listening to Mika and Joe S every morning for the past few months, only because they always supported Trump. now they have gone completely off the rails in a non-stop RACIST rant. it is horrible. I am afraid that is going to be the meme from here on in regarding Trump.. RACIST! RACIST! RACIST! I honestly don’t know how much more of this I can take.

    Thank God for this blog.

  47. I have rarely commented on this site but I am a regular reader . My favorite commenter is wbboei but love everyone else’s comments as well. Just wanted to note that the media will always make a mountain out of a mole hill when it comes to Trump. With respect his comment on the bias associated with the “Mexican” Judge he was only agreeing with what the media and the establishment GOP who have been hammering him about for months that the Mexican community hate him for building the wall. So when he agrees with the media and says the Judge is bias against him for building the wall they get all bent out of shape and call him a racist for saying that. Well they have been saying the same thing aboutt the “Mexican” community so I guess that makes the GOP establishment and Media racists as well based on their own criteria.

    I agree Trump could have been a little more nuanced when stating the obvious in my opinion but the fact is the Judges Obama are appointing wear identity politics as a badge of honor Remenber when Sotomayor said being a “wise Latina” will influence her decisions?

  48. Alcina, I hear you loud and clear

    That is why i truly believe that donald did the smartest thing by changing the subject and getting back on HIS message about what he wants to do for the country and back to defining himself

    The entire media is still hellbent on this racist meme every day every segment. ..they want to give him the palin treatment .. katrina pierson does a pretty good job on donald’s behalf but he needs some sharks out there fighting on his side…where are they???

    All except lou dobbs, charles payne, greta and a few others

    If it is true, and if Trump has had 3500 cases which he filed or were filed against him over the years according to USA Today, then surely there is a case or two which was presided over by a judge with an Hispanic background. And in that case, evidence could be proffered that he raised no objection to the conduct of that judge, or ideally that he was complimentary. That counter example would quell the shit storm from big media that he is a racist and it would draw the sordid background of this Judge Curiel into high relief. Then the connection that our brilliant friend Momaer identified–what I referred to as the “nexus” between La Raza, the assaults in Sacramento and this little Judge could be proven and viola Trump would regain the offensive. That would be the way to handle this case, if he feels he needs to.

  50. The most disturbing aspect of this for me is the way Ryan came out and accused him of being a racist. There is no walking that one back for Ryan. He needs to fall through the proverbial trap door. He is no fucking good. And neither, for that matter, is that turkey buzzard McConnell who sees the enemy, panics and retreats. He is a regular Horatio Gates, who fled the battlefied at the moment of decision in a key battle of the revolutionary war, and rode in furious retreat back to Washington, while his army perished on the battlefield. Gates, McConnell, profiles in courage. Hardly. Just a pair of world class cowards. If Ryan is disposed of, McConnell will get the message. Neither he or Newt should be the Convention Chairman. It is obvious that if Ryan gets the job he will scuttle Trump’s candidacy. The Hamlet game he played previously raised an inference that he might be inclined to stab Donald in the back. Calling him a racist removes all doubt. Strip him of his power, defeat him in his election, tar and feather him and send him to K Street where assholes like Ryan belong.

  51. I repeat this point for emphasis.

    Assuming we could show that this little judge belonged to La Razza and La Raza helped orchestrate the vicious assaults against Trump supporters while the utterly useless cops let the thugs go and apprehended the victims, then big media is sure to say:

    Q: what evidence do you have that Judge Curiel knew these thugs would conduct vicious assauts, burn American flags, assault Americans with illegals? You can’t prove he knew!

    A. fuck you. Under the law of conspiracy it is enough to show that a combination existed for an illegal purpose. Once established, the law does not require that the Judge knew what these thugs would do. He was part of the conspiracy, and that is enough. And by the way, in case you did not hear me the first time big media. fuck you.

  52. RINOs as pathetic, impotent, big media suck up—not worthy of electing/

    Here is Ann Coulter’s summation:

    The effrontery of this double standard is so blinding, that the only way liberals can bluff their way through it is with indignation.

    NYT . . . . . . . .

    “DO I HEAR YOU RIGHT?

    ARE YOU SAYING A JUDGE’S ETHNICITY COULD INFLUENCE HIS DECISIONS?

    (Please, please, please don’t bring up everything we’ve said about white judges and juries for the past four decades.)”

    They’re betting they can intimidate Republicans — and boy, are they right!

    The entire Republican Brain Trust has joined the media in their denunciations of Trump for his crazy idea that anyone other than white men can be biased. That’s right, Wolf, I don’t have any common sense. Would it help if the GOP donated to Hillary?

    The NeverTrump crowd is going to get a real workout if they plan to do this every week between now and the election.

    What do Republicans think they’re getting out of this appeasement? Proving to voters that elected Republicans are pathetic, impotent media suck-ups is, surprisingly, not hurting Trump.

  53. the Donald has two opposing, unpredictable sides to his personality…now would be a good time to let the smart, serious leader out with full force

    let Trump be Trump can be complicated, there really is more than one side of him…now is the time for Donald to put the big boy pants on and pivot to someone MORE people conceive as their President…it is not too much to ask that Donald give some reassurance and introduce himself to people that barely know him…

    Yes, I agree. If we’re healthy, we all have more than one side to ourselves. And different situations call for different behaviors. A rally is meant to rally supporters, get them juiced up, to go vote. You don’t see people having rallies in IA when it’s time for CA to vote. It’s no different in purpose than the rallies that schools have before big games – the point being to get the students psyched up enough that they go to the game and show support.

    On the other hand, any serious topics, especially those being presented nationally or even during a general election (when you’re fishing for voters outside of your base) IMO should be presented in a mature, serious fashion. I think it’s silly if someone thinks he should be his boisterous self in every public appearance. That in itself wouldn’t be natural, because as you said, he has more than that side to himself. He would be a bull in a china shop if he only had the one side.

    This whole “let Trump be Trump” thing feels spooky to me, too cultish. I’m not willing to give up my brain, my opinions. No one posting their opinion is going to NOT let Trump be Trump – who has that power? Some people act like posting “I wish Trump would X” or “I wish Trump would not Y…” is going to bring him down – otherwise, why do they try to shut down any original thoughts with “let Trump be Trump”? The reactionary overkill is mind blowing. OMG, there are even people on the net calling him “god”, “daddy”, and referring to 17 dimensional chess. Wow, deja vu. Spooky, spooky, spooky.

  54. That’s true Outris . Wife for Trump, but thinks at times he is his own worst enemy . Another female friend of mine who lives in Buffalo, a middle-aged, single, working class lady, all in for Trump as well, but also nervous about his recent comments regarding the Judge.
    Please remember no matter what the outcome, I respect all who post here and have learned more than I have ever contributed. I look at our administrator who obviously adored Hillary but is putting his/her principles ahead of any past allegiance to Hillary. I look forward to the months ahead.

  55. wbboei June 8, 2016 at 9:12 pm

    Ryan’s challenger is on fire! “We’re not mean. We’re brutally honest. Not our fault the truth hurts Speaker Ryan”
    and a second campaign website just launched:
    PaulRyanFiles dot com.

    “This isn’t your normal campaign website. Conventional wisdom says that you should never mention your opponent’s name. But then, this isn’t a conventional campaign.
    So, why would I buck all standard advice and include a second campaign website to talk so directly about Paul Ryan’s betrayal of us? …”

  56. I’d pare this down if I understood it better. The first sentences are substance that Trump has referred to at least once. And some of the rest seems to support his criticism.

    In February 2014, Curiel certified Tarla Makaeff v. Trump University as a class action alleging that Trump University was “a basically fraudulent endeavor”,[16] and accepted residents of three states as members of that class.[17] In March 2016, Curiel allowed Makaeff to withdraw her name from the lawsuit, and the case was retitled Low v. Trump University.[18][16] In October 2014, Curiel certified Cohen v. Trump as another national class action against entrepreneur and Presidential candidate Donald Trump.[19][20] In May 2016, Curiel granted a request by the Washington Post for public release of certain Trump University documents and depositions that had been filed in the case.[16][21] Curiel has scheduled a trial to begin in the Low case on November 28, 2016, in San Diego.[22] Curiel had planned to start the trial in summer 2016, but postponed it until after the 2016 Presidential election because of concerns that jurors would be affected by a “media frenzy” if the trial took place during the presidential campaign.[22]
    Trump repeatedly criticized Curiel in campaign speeches and interviews, calling him a “hater”, saying his rulings have been unfair, and that Curiel “happens to be, we believe, Mexican, which is great. I think that’s fine”,[23] while suggesting that the judge’s ethnicity posed a conflict of interest in light of Trump’s proposal to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexican border.[1][16][22][24][25] Curiel wrote in court papers that Trump has “placed the integrity of these court proceedings at issue”,[1][16][21] but is forbidden from responding publicly to Trump’s claims in view of rules against public commentary by judges on active cases.[16] On June 7, 2016 Trump issued a lengthy statement saying that his criticism of the judge had been “misconstrued” and that his concerns about Curiel’s impartiality were not based upon ethnicity alone, but also upon rulings in the case. He added that he did not intend to comment on this matter further.[26][27]
    Curiel is a longtime member of La Raza Lawyers of California,[28] an association of Hispanic attorneys. Former United States Attorney General Alberto Gonzales wrote, in an op-ed piece, about a different group called the National Council of La Raza (NCLR):[29][30][31][32] “Some of Trump’s aides have indicated that they believe Curiel is a member of the National Council of La Raza, a vocal advocacy organization that has vigorously condemned Trump and his views on immigration. The two groups are unaffiliated, and Curiel is not a member of NCLR.” But, he added, Trump may be concerned about the possibility that the La Raza Lawyers of California or its members support the NCLR.[33]
    Gonzalez’ claim that the two groups are unaffiliated is contradicted by the LRLoC homepage having a “Links and Affiliates” button[34] which links to a page listing and linking to the website of the NCoLR.[35]
    Curiel is also a member of the Hispanic National Bar Association,[36] a group that organized a boycott of Trump businesses.[37]

    Thanks for digging some of the facts out since facts don’t matter to the current spin the media is pushing so hard. Curiel’s parents were Mexican citizens. If and when they became US citizens is unknown. If they were not US citizens when he was born in apparently 1953 then he is a Mexican citizen (dual) to which means he is a Mexican. Trump’s attorneys would do some research on a judge in a potentially big case. His dual citizenship would come up or be suspected and his membership in Mexican advocacy would be in line with his Mexican (dual?) citizenship. Since when is calling a Mexican citizen a Mexican racist? The over the top screaming by Republicans and the media makes me suspect he is indeed legally a Mexican by citizenship and the morons in the Senate never touched it when confirming him. So Trump is probably correct and the Senate doesn’t want the public to know they are confirming dual or foreign citizenship judges. Judge Curiel needs to disclose a few things such as is he an anchor baby.

  58. Gates, McConnell, profiles in courage.

    Hardly.

    Just a pair of world class cowards.
    —–
    Throw in Roberts and what have you got?

    Three of a kind.

  59. I wonder if it would be useful to translate for the benefit of those who do not speak Sanish

    Rather than saying La Raza, call it “The Race”

  60. Curiel wrote in court papers that Trump has “placed the integrity of these court proceedings at issue”,[1][16][21] but is forbidden from responding publicly to Trump’s claims in view of rules against public commentary by judges on active cases.[1
    ——-
    This is a slimy cocksucker.

    Placing the integrity of these proceedings at issue?

    Or, inviting public scrutiny on how whether he is exercising his judicial discretion for purely partisan ends, as fully appears from the record.

    Forbidden from responding because this is an active case.

    Fine. Just tell us why you sent damning information to a newspaper that has openly declared its opposition to Trump and who has assigned 24 investigative reporters to dig up, or if necessary manufacture dirt on Donald.

    This Judge is a partisan rat (raton in Spanish) hiding behind his judicial office. We have had plenty of bad judges over the years, and I have regaled you with their stories, Marvin Manton of the Second Circuit who took bribes from both sides and refunded to the loser, Abe Fortas who Earl Warren wanted named as his successor until it was discovered that he was fond of underaged boys, Judge Goff a radical reformer in the 1890s in league with Chuchill’s cousin William Travis Jerome and went on to become as a judge the personification of evil, as recounted by the great lawyer of the last century, Lloyd Paul Stryker. Each of them, and many others over the years have abused their judicial authority.

    If I were to hazard a guess, it would be that Judge Curiel fits somewhere in that rogues’s gallery, for the reasons previously stated.

  61. For me the ideal outcome of the November election would look like this:

    1. Trump wins the presidency—Session as vp.

    2. Ryan loses his seat–and makes a b-line to k-street (Q. what one year waiting period)

    3. The Republicans lose the Senate–syanara McConnell

    4. The Republican retain the House.

  62. I read this over on AT:

    “… while the decisions of the House of Lords are not binding on American soil, they are — and should be — very persuasive given the favor accorded to the views of this court around the world. To return to some applicable quotes from the judgement of Lord Browne-Wilkinson from In Re Pinochet:

    [O]nce it is shown that the judge is himself a party to the cause, or has a relevant interest in its subject matter, he is disqualified without any investigation into whether there was a likelihood or suspicion of bias. The mere fact of his interest is sufficient to disqualify him unless he has made sufficient disclosure. I will call this “automatic disqualification.” …”

    The reason I am so interested in “Trump vs the Judge” is because my brother keeps telling me Donald Trump should sit down and shut up about “the Judge” crap. I guess at first I wished he hadn’t gone there but now that he has, I want to understand why he made it an issue and why now.

    My first thought was Mr Trump wanted to retaliate against the Real Instigator of the San Jose Trump supporter beat down. And secondarily to that, when he leaked that he told his campaign to double down, he was smoking out Flake and Ryan and McConnell and the rest of the self serving Uni-Party hacks. The hacks who will take the slightest opportunity offered to publicly “dump on Trump” while still trying to retain their “we are the grownups” cover.

    Second reason I thought of was to “check mate” the opposition who, I bet, were planning on using the Trump U case to bite at Mr. Trump’s ankles all the way to November. And if that was/is the case then I am glad Donald Trump gave them a stunning blow now, just before his campaign pivot to the general election.

    A third reason could be the stuff I am reading about now: how our judiciary system needs to have one of Donald Trumps “turn around artist” assigned.

    As our brilliant friend Mormaer says:

    “The over the top screaming by Republicans and the media makes me suspect he is indeed legally a Mexican by citizenship and the morons in the Senate never touched it when confirming him.”

  63. As our brilliant friend Mormaer says:

    The San Jose riots are turning into another story they’d like to have buried.

    Right out of the gate, Gateway showed that Tom Llamos, ABC pretty boy #2, had video of the Black guy with the Muslim name chasing and pulling down the young blond and white male with Trump shirt and had.

    So right out of the gate Lamestream could have gone with this story too. But didn’t. Now some arrests have been made, more documentation is available, and CTH has it.

    ——–
    It is tempting to assume that Trump put his foot in his mouth when he brought up The Little Race Judge. But Andy McCarthy, an ex prosecutor offers a different perspective. Essentially, there was nothing haphazard or inadvertent about it. He wanted to draw the media into a shit fest, which succeeded admirably, run against the media and throw red meat to the base.

    See if you agree:

    Trump then moved on to gratuitous mention mode. He made reference to Curiel’s ancestry in a manner that, far from an attack or a claim that Mexican heritage equals anti-Trump bias, was ostensibly laudatory:

    The judge, who happens to be, we believe, Mexican, which is great, I think that’s fine. You know what? I think the Mexicans are going to end up loving Donald Trump when I give all these jobs, okay?
    Now, was Trump really suggesting that Curiel’s ancestry is a plus? Well, were we born yesterday? Trump was playing to a crowd of ardently pro-Trump, “build the wall” enthusiasts, appeals to whom have consistently featured no small amount of Mexico-bashing and have reliably elicited cheering.

    So Trump laid the groundwork for claiming that Curiel was biased against him, but studiously avoided opining on why this was the case. Then he told his audience that Curiel was a Mexican (which is inaccurate; Curiel is an American of Mexican descent), but quickly added (wink-wink) that Mexicans are just wonderful.

    The way Trump said it, the invocation of Mexico was apropos of nothing. But he patently invited his audience and the media to connect the dots: Curiel’s Mexican heritage was the source of the judge’s purported animus, which in turn explains the judge’s purportedly indefensible rulings. Did Trump come out and say that explicitly? No. Did he cynically intimate it? Duh …

    Naturally, Trump fans play the same game in response: they tacitly connect the dots, but Jesuitically insist that their hero technically said nothing offensive. The anti-Trump media, by contrast, connect the dots loudly and sloppily: They insist that he said what they suspect he meant, rather than what he actually said. But here is the kicker: Trump, meanwhile, basks in publicity that has a dual political benefit: It energizes his fan base and pits Trump against the media. Even for Republicans and conservatives who don’t like Trump, running against the media is as admirable as running against Hillary – assuming there is a difference between the two.

    Let’s get real: Donald Trump is not positing a racist legal claim against an American judge of Mexican descent. He is making an unsavory political claim that is designed to draw the sting of fraud disclosures in the Trump U case. And he calculates, perhaps shrewdly in the reality-TV culture he has helped shape, that there really is no such thing as bad publicity.

  65. Our courts are foul with judges with special interests who do not recuse themselves. l told some of my experience, but only a part. You have no idea how bad it is.

  66. DO YOU RECALL THE STORY OF THE LITTLE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF?

    Maybe its brilliance, marketing genius, or the art that conceals the art.

    But when I read Andy’s comments–and he is a very solid guy, I wondered whether he is right. But he does not answer the entire hypothesis, because there is more to it.

    Time was what Cronkite said was generally accepted as fair and unbiased. In fact, he was regarded as the most trusted man in America. And the reason for that is true: he never let his biases show in a vulgar or conspicuous way.

    What if–what is Donald is doing more than just running against the media? What if his goal his marketing goal is to attract over the top negative comments about him 24-7.

    Remember what I said about the boy who cried wolf? What if this little racist Judge is nothing more than a pawn? What if the real goal here was to push the hot buttons of big media knowing exactly they would react? Just like Pavlov’s dog? You can make book on it.

    Sooner or later they will stumble across something, probably a number of things which reflect negatively. But as long as he has got them in a 24-7 shit fest, which will bore the public to hell and back, what credibility will they have when they finally come up with something?

    Like the little boy who cried wolf, big media who famously said he wont run, if he runs he will quit, if he runs and does not quit he will be defeated, if he is not defeated in the primaries he will be crushed at the convention—seldom right but never in doubt.

    You reach a point where even the dullest knife in the drawer no longer believes big media. A major league batter who bats under a hundred will be lucky if they send him back to the farm team. Trump is showing what losers and partisans big media is. And that is an issue the RINO tip toes around, hoping not to get clobbered too hard, while their base seems them as cowards. The public likes a leader who can take a punch, 19 punches and not get stopped. They like a Jack Dempsey who said it takes guts to get up off the mat and continue the fight. Consciously, or subconsciously, people find themselves rooting for someone like that.

    I mention this mainly for my own benefit so I do not throw a book through the television, hoping to hit Ryan or Morning Joe. Tvs are expensive to replace.

  67. This is not a case of baiting the media.

    This is setting them up for a fall.

    And they are ripe for it.

    After their creepy affair with Obama.

    And polls showing the public trust in under 10%.

    It only remains to be shown who owns them

    And whose agenda they are pursuing

    And how they do it–false claims of racism, pc, etc.

  68. The other part of it is certain media figures need to be taken down.

    If you think the takedown of Brian Williams was a random event, think again.

    Big media are nothing more than water carriers.

    But others decide whose water they will carry.

    They all have skeletons in their closets.

  69. Webboei, I understood your THE LITTLE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF comment and appreciate the thought behind it. But I need to ponder your Andy McCarthy comment for a while.

    Another perhaps small reason for Trump vs the LaRaza Judge might be to poison the water for Clinton selecting La Raza advocate Julian Castro as her VP.

  70. Here’s Trump’s statement on that terrorist attack in Tel Aviv:

    I condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the outrageous terrorist shootings that took the lives of at least four innocent civilians and wounded at least twenty others in Tel Aviv yesterday.
    The Israeli security forces’ investigation is ongoing, but some facts have already emerged — and they are grim.
    Just as fast as the condolences arrive from the civilized world is the praise arising out of the uncivilized one. Hamas praised the attack, calling the attackers “heroes.” Reports out of Hebron indicate that residents of the terrorists’ hometown lit up the night sky with celebratory fireworks. One Palestinian “news organization” even referred to the shootings, in which the assailants dressed up as observant Jews, as a “Ramadan treat.” The leader of Hamas called the injured terrorist a “hero.” How despicable!
    The American people stand strong with the people of Israel, who have suffered far too long from terrorism. Israel’s security is a matter of paramount importance to me and the American people.
    We understand all too well the unspeakable horror that terrorism unleashes. To address it — and address it we must! — we must recognize the parallel horror of the culture of religious hatred that permeates many Palestinian quarters. From schools that indoctrinate toddlers to grow up to kill Israelis to the daily menu of hate that spews forth from various “news organizations,” change is long overdue in the Palestinian territories.
    Let us begin the arduous task of creating a future where peace can take root and terror finds no refuge.
    I express my deepest condolences to the families of the four Israelis who were murdered, as well as my wishes for a speedy recovery to the wounded.
    Donald J. Trump

  71. And here’s what he said about Obama’s endorsement of Hillary:

    Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years of Obama—but nobody else does!

  72. Fresh from Trump’s FB 2 hours ago:

    “In the end, you’re measured not by how much you undertake but by what you finally accomplish. Donald J. Trump”

  73. The big media beloved messiah and his forlorn Sancho Panza Kerry counsel restraint in the face of terror, because, as he so eloquently put it, in the long arc of history . . .it don’t mean shit. We must love our fellow Muslims, he says, and they will turn their arms into plowshares, because behind every Muslim becrazed Muslim there is a future American illegal immigrant just itching to get out. Obama needs to do something constructive. Like what? Stick his head down the shitter and flush three times. This could help. And what would Kerry do? He could throw his medals against the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, and get in his yacht, uncork a bottle of champaign and beg the Mullahs to take ownership of the terrorist problem, and they will undoubtedly agree because they owe him not one but two: $150 billion plus the right to build a nuclear bomb. But the truth is, they have already taking ownership of the terrorist problem and telling them who to kill. Makes no difference to Kerry or Obama however. All they want–crave is a headline.

  74. This is major and should scare everyone. The 9th court circuit of appeals ruled that the second amendment does not protect your right to a concealed weapon.

    I can not link, my phone is messed up, but believe me, on a Hillary Supreme, they would clearly rule that Americans we have no Constitutional right to bear arms.
    If that doesn’t scare the hell out of you anti trumpers, nothing else will.

    And that will only be the beginning of the lose of rights I have no doubt!

  75. Here’s a comment I read on Ace…makes a lot of sense…

    Loretta Lynch works for obama, her boss, Mr 4putt, just endorsed Hillary For President..

    Is that not a conflict of interest in her bringing or should I say not bringing charges against hillary?

    Or, am I just racist?

  76. Hillary and Bill Robbed Haiti gold, don’t give a fk about black people
    ——–
    I beg to differ.

    I read some place that up to 5% of the money collected by CGI for Haitian disaster relief went to the Haitian people.

    The rest went to administrative costs.

    Administrative costs for some non profits can be substantial.

    But 95% is pushing it.

    For the Salvation Army administrative costs run 8% if memory serves.

    Then again, if CGI has not responded and if Bill had not gone down there himself

    Then they would have received nothing and 5% is better than nothing.

    So what are those ungrateful wretches bitching about.

    This is obviously a Republican plot.

    And I am sure Hillary will tell us that.

    Because anything that goes wrong is their fault.

  77. The contention that attacks on Hillary

    Are orchestrated by a vast right wing conspiracy

    Assumes the existence of a competent adversary

    Whereas the Republican Party on a good day

    Barely rises to the level of a wuss

    Thus, this defense does not pass the red face test

    Only a public seduced by bright shiny objects

    And terrified by imaginary things that go bump in the night

    Would fall for that kind of bullshit

    But because 52% of the public is that way

    As evidenced by their continuing support of Obama

    It this bullshit is apt to work.

  78. Now that Iran has been brought to heel

    And forced to return to the community of nations

    By that Bismark of Martha’s Vineyard John Kerry

    Can we at least hope that they will make a contribution to CGI?

    And if they do, will ISIS be far behind.

    The return on investment here is huge

    Since Kerry giving sucking the dick of Iran

    And twisting the arm of European Banks on Iran’s behalf

    His work completed, he will be sailing home on his yacht

    So let us serenade Old Horesface and his blushing bride

    And pray for A Perfect Storm
