Obama Economy: Sinks #Hillary2016, Destroys Wall Street

Update II: Speaking of “deplorables” as we did in our first update, Donald J. Trump spoke out on the FED with many of the same arguments we made in our original article. Read the Trump take here: Blasting “False Economy,” Trump Takes on the Federal Reserve.

—————————————————-

Update: At the end of our article we linked the disaster Obama economy to Hillary Clinton’s latest race-baiting of Donald J. Trump supporters. When we wrote the article we made reference near the end to “Hillary2016 is now reduced to insulting Trump supporters“. The reference was to Hillary Clinton’s interview with Israeli television and her despicable “basket of deplorables” attack against Trump supporters. At the time we wrote the article we came up with a surprise.

We were surprised that it was impossible for us to find a Youtube or even many Google references to Hillary’s despicable “basket of deplorables” comment. We don’t know if Google or Youtube were blocking access to what was clear to us was a very despicable and very stupid comment by Hillary Clinton. Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” Youtube eventually appeared in our comments section but only in an entire interview, not a selected clip – because such a clip did not exist.

That’s all changed now and many are missing the point about the “basket of deplorables”. For whatever reason the first “basket of deplorables” comment got some attention, but not as much as it deserved. Then came last night and the second “basket of deplorables” comment exploded. Why did “basket of deplorables” go from a curiosity at Big Pink to major explosion?

The reason the despicable “basket of deplorables” comment by Hillary Clinton went from obscurity to prominence is due to Hillary Clinton. Last night at an LGBTQ fund raiser with Barbra Streisand in New York Hillary Clinton once again attacked Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables”. That’s the point, Hillary repeated “basket of deplorables” because it is a campaign strategy. Granted, it is a stupid campaign strategy, but it is deliberate, not accidental. It’s also doomed to failure.


The idea is to isolate Donald J. Trump supporters and hint to Big Media that the way to protect the Obama third term is to denounce Donald J. Trump and Donald J. Trump supporters as “racist”. Hillary2016 believes that in 2008 the despicable Obama campaign strategy of calling Hillary and Bill Clinton “racists” worked. If it worked for Obama in 2008, reasons Hillary2016, why won’t the “racist” race-bait work for Hillary2016? What goes around comes around. It’s a recycle of the LBJ “Frontlash” strategy against Barry Goldwater.

Hillary Clinton on Saturday has emitted a phony “apology” for her statement. But at the moment the idiots at Hillary2016 are happy they put the basket of deplorables “meme” into circulation. What the saps at Hillary2016 hindquarters don’t understand is that the “racist” card is so played out, all Hillary Clinton has managed to do is drive the softer Donald J. Trump supporters into “silent majority” mode. Soft Donald J. Trump supporters who do not want to be called “racists” will vote for Donald J. Trump but when a Clinton campaign staffer calls or a Big Media pollster calls to ask for their opinion these soft on the outside but firm in the inside Donald J. Trump supporters will lie and say they are “undecided” or “leaning” to Hillary. But come November these “silent majority” voters will vote Trump.

Speaking of “baskets” in the 2008 election cycle we Hillary Clinton supporters loved and played repeatedly a YouTube of another “basket”. Yup, in 2008 every chance we got we played our favorite Youtube. It was the “basket bunch” featuring a lantern-jawed Moose in high heels:



How’s them baskets?

There is no capitalist stock market in America. There is only the FED. The Federal Reserve. “Don’t fight the FED” is the investor strategy in Obama oppressed America. The “welfare queens” of Ronald Reagan’s day are back due to Barack Obama’s purchase of many voters with “gimmes” to ensnare them as slaves to the welfare state. But the biggest “welfare queens” are the corporations and corporate chieftains (and yes, the investors) who have bought into the Obama crony (not “capitalist”) gangster government.

The Obama crony (not “capitalist”) gangster government thugs at the FED have robbed those on fixed incomes and others who refuse to be herded like cows to slaughter by not sacrificing their incomes to the phony “stock market”. For years the Obama economy masters have herded the cows into the crony (not “capitalist”) pens. Now, it is time for the slaughter. Today on Wall Street, the slaughter began.

Rather, today on Wall Street, the slaughter continued. It started with the Bank of Japan. The central banks around the world are in turmoil and the turmoil has now struck Wall Street. It is all very expected and no surprise. The only surprise is the time of the slaughter. The first cow to the slaughter is #Hillary2016.

Here’s some analysis, via Bloomberg News, from a “respected” Wall Streeter who believes Donald J. Trump will be the next president:

DoubleLine Capital Chief Investment Officer Jeffrey Gundlach said it’s time for fixed-income investors to prepare for rising interest rates and higher inflation by reducing the duration of their positions, moving money into cash and protecting against volatility.

This is a big, big moment,” Gundlach said during a webcast Thursday. “Interest rates have bottomed. They may not rise in the near term as I’ve talked about for years. But I think it’s the beginning of something and you’re supposed to be defensive.”

Gundlach, 56, has built a career as a successful money manager and financial prognosticator. This year, his flagship $61.7 billion DoubleLine Total Return Bond Fund is trailing the benchmark Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index, avoiding high-yield debt, which is up 15 percent, and shunning longer-duration positions. The Total Return fund’s effective duration is 2.4 years, less than half of the index, Gundlach said.

He cited a July low of 10-year Treasuries that didn’t hold as evidence interest rates have hit bottom. The fund manager said rates on the U.S. 10-year bond may surpass 2 percent by the end of 2016.

Bonds tumbled with stocks Friday as central banks start to question the benefits of further monetary easing, sending the yield on 10-year Treasuries 7 basis points higher to 1.67 percent at 11:24 a.m. in New York. The S&P 500 Index of U.S. equities dropped 1.2 percent, the most since June 27. [snip]

Gundlach also stuck to his prediction that Republican Donald Trump will be elected the next U.S. president.

Jeffrey Gunlach is not alone in predictions of a dire future. Deutsche Bank put matches to its hair today too.

It is near impossible for Obama Dimocrat Janet Yellen’s FED to raise rates in September. That would finish off Hillary2016. It’s impossible, but possible, and after today, irrelevant. The Obama economy has destroyed Wall Street capitalism and continues the relentless march to destroy Hillary2016. Selloff:

Stocks sell off as Dow, S&P post worst day since June 24; Fed fears loom

U.S. equities closed sharply lower on Friday as concerns the Federal Reserve might raise interest rates this month loomed following comments made by key Fed officials.

“The Fed is clearly on a choreographed path; it wants to raise rates this year,” said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at Wunderlich Securities. “What the market is trying to re-calibrate is whether that means September or December.”

“You’ve also had some lingering disappointment from Mario Draghi disappointing,” he said.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell about 350 points less than 15 minutes before the close, with 3M and Boeing contributing the most losses.

“The commentary from a voting member that the Fed may be forced to raise rates is important,” said Kim Forrest, senior equity analyst at Fort Pitt Capital. “I think the market needs to understand that there may be a rate hike coming. Whether it’s September or December, it doesn’t matter big picture.” [snip]

“I think this might be the beginning of a correction,” said Chuck Self, CIO of iSectors. “When you look at the sectors, it’s a decently broad decline.” He added that Monday “could be a pretty ugly day as well” since stocks were on track to end the week on a negative note.

Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren, historically a “dove” on rates, started the burn with comments he has switched to “hawk” and for a rate rise. Are we at Big Pink surprised as Wall Street turns to red? No. The Obama economy stinks and all the perfumes of Arabia cannot make the stink go away.

David Stockman too noted the bursting bubble:

The Implosion Is Near: Signs Of The Bubble’s Last Days

The central banks of the world are massively and insouciantly pursuing financial instability. That’s the inherent result of the 68 straight months of zero money market rates that have been forced into the global financial system by the Fed and its confederates at the BOJ, ECB and BOE. ZIRP fuels endless carry trades and the harvesting of every manner of profit spread between negligible “funding” costs and positive yields and returns on a wide spectrum of risk assets.

Moreover, this central bank sponsored regime of ZIRP and money market pegging contains a built-in accelerator. As carry trade speculators drive asset prices steadily higher and fixed income spreads steadily thinner—- fear and short interest is driven out of the casino, making buying on the dips ever more profitable and less risky. Indeed, the explicit promise by central banks that the money market rate will remain frozen for the duration and that ample warning of any change in rate policy will be “transparently” announced is the single worst policy imaginable from the point of view of financial stability. It means that the speculator’s worst nightmare—–suddenly going “upside down” due to a sharp spike in funding costs—-is eliminated by central bank writ. [snip]

In other words, at a point which is month #61 of the current business cycle, and thereby already beyond than the average cycle since 1950, why would any one in their right mind say a market is not bubbly when it’s trading at nearly 20X reported earnings. Indeed, in a world where interest rate and profit rate normalization must inevitably come, the capitalization rate for current earnings should be well below normal—-not extended into the nosebleed section of historical results. [snip]

At the end of the day, the Fed and its fellow traveling central banks have systematically dismantled the natural stability mechanisms of financial markets. Accordingly, financial markets have now become dangerous casinos in which speculative bubbles are guaranteed to build to dangerous extremes as the central bank driven financial inflation gathers force. That’s where we are now. Again.

Isn’t that what Donald J. Trump predicted? Yes. Yes it is.

At about this point in September 2008, John McCain lost his lead to Barack Obama when Wall Street laid an egg. Such was the disgust with George W. Bush the country voted for the false hope and chump change Barack Obama promised. What goes around, comes around. The Obama economy destroyed Wall Street capitalism and now destroys Hillary2016.

The Wall Street phony FED driven prices used to be the only sign of life Barack Obama and the Obama third term could point to as a bright spot in the economy. If was fake. It is fake. Now the bloom is off the fake. It comes at a terrible moment.

Donald J. Trump’s poll numbers are on the rise. In state after state Republican fears that Trump would doom their down ballot candidates are at an end as GOP candidates are winning in Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina (in Ohio and Florida at crucial 50%). Even the Politico pinhead Republicans and the #NeverTrump scum realize Donald J. Trump is on a path towards victory.

The Donald J. Trump rise is fueled by Trump’s bold leadership style recently demonstrated in speeches and trips to Louisiana, Mexico, and Detroit, – as well as the disaster which is Hillary2016’s campaign ads and ceaseless race baiting. Hillary2016 is now reduced to insulting Trump supporters and Bill Clinton denouncing “Make America Great Again” as racist even though white southerner Bill Clinton frequently stated “Make America Great Again” when he was president. In 2008 Barack Obama’s campaign denounced Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton as racists and even declared that Hillary wanted Obama assassinated. Now, anything goes, as what goes around comes around.

Hillary2016, Hillary Clinton, and Bill Clinton, are race-baiting Donald J. Trump. They have forgotten what got Bill elected. “It’s the economy, stupid.” Donald J. Trump remembers “it’s the economy, stupid”.

Further, Donald J. Trump knows the stupid Obama economy kills what is right about America, as well as Hillary2016.

    Poll shows Trump edging ahead of Clinton amid tightening race

    Donald Trump has edged ahead of Hillary Clinton in a poll released Tuesday, the latest to reflect a tightening race as the campaigns kick into high gear after Labor Day.

    The CNN/ORC poll shows Trump leading Clinton 45-43 percent in a four-way race, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 7 percent and Green Party’s Jill Stein at 2 percent.

    The numbers are a stark reversal from an early August poll that gave Clinton an 8-point lead over the Republican nominee, and the latest to show the race may be closer than it once appeared.

    Last week, a Fox News Poll showed Trump trailing Clinton by just 2 points in a four-way race.

    Clinton now has a roughly 2.4-point lead in the RealClearPolitics average of recent national polls in a four-way race, down from 7 points at the beginning of August. The tightening comes after a raft of critical reports about alleged favors sought by Clinton Foundation donors and allies with the State Department under Clinton’s leadership. [snip]

    While Clinton remains dominant in most battleground states, polls in the swing states also have narrowed in recent days.

    In Florida, two recent polls gave Trump a slight edge over the Democratic nominee, after polls throughout August had given Clinton a 5-9 point lead in the Sunshine State.

  4. Didn’t this same thing happen when McCain was running and he hurried back to Washington and stopped campaigning? He had something about how the economy was doing great and this happened which torpedoed his statement. Anyone remember?

  5. Between my gal (just waiting for Grennie to expire before I ask) and this gushing “remarkably extraordinary” Israeli journalist who can barely contain her enthusiasm (and bias?) for Hillary, it seems that big media is giving Hillary the wide berth she needs to navigate past the currents and eddies of her past. Gosh. I thought better of them. Well, to be candid, not really.

  6. Yes, Hillary has just the answer for the meltdown of the Obama economy:

    1. 550% more refugees from Syria, and-

    2. cut social security and medicare, and-

    3. farm out more jobs to the third world, and-

    4. expand the size and scope of government, and-

    5. raise taxes on the middle class, and-

    6. war with Russia–to help the neocons and show she is tough

    Death panels anyone?

  7. I guess this Putin thing is supposed to resonate.

    I can tell you for a fact it does not.

    I know this because I was born and raised in the cold war era.

    The red scare in the early 1950s when I was too young to understand.

    The bomb shelters and the civil defense sirens at noon every Wednesday.

    I will bury you, the Cuban missile crisis, etc.

    And my time in the military when the USSR was our main enemy.

    But despite all that, I am not hostile to Putin.

    Understanding the battle between globalists and nationalist I respect him.

    Just as much as I disrespect and detest the big media beloved Obama.

    So if this latter day red scare nonsense does not impress me

    Then how in the world is it going to connect with the average voter

    Other than the globalists at Foggy Bottom

    It is a figment of imagination and a political non starter.

    So let big media beat its gums to death on it.

    It does not matter.

    In other words, if

  8. Mindful of who and what we are dealing with, namely the globalist who have no concern for the welfare of this country, is it remotely possible that this ludicrous claim of Russian interference in our election unsupported by any kind of hard evidence, at the very same moment that the real culprit Soros is working to put all elections on line where he and others can manipulate them to their own ends, as proven by wikileaks, could this claim of Russian involvement be nothing more than a pretext for the government to take over the election process. Before we allow government to undertake major action, such as going to war with Hussein or taking over elections, we are entitled to clear cogent and convincing evidence that the problem is real, and the proposed course of action presents the most sensible alternative. We cannot afford to leave that decision to them, because they have no regard for our welfare.

    What’s she going to do, put us in FEMA camps? Trump should rub her F’ing nose in that one.

  13. We asked this question a long time ago and provided a better premise, and a better answer:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/democrats-wonder-and-worry-why-isnt-clinton-far-ahead-of-trump/2016/09/09/543f3342-7693-11e6-8149-b8d05321db62_story.html

    Democrats wonder and worry: Why isn’t Clinton far ahead of Trump?

    NEW YORK — With Election Day less than two months away, Democrats are increasingly worried that Hillary Clinton has not built a formidable lead against Donald Trump despite his historic weaknesses as a national party candidate.

    Even the Democratic nominee’s advisers acknowledge that she must make changes, and quickly. Clinton leads Trump by three percentage points, having fallen from her high of nine points in August, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average. That tightening has frustrated many Clinton allies and operatives, who are astonished that she isn’t running away with this race, given Trump’s deep unpopularity and his continuing stream of controversial comments.

    Generally, I’m concerned, frankly,” said former Democratic Senate leader Thomas A. Daschle (S.D.). “It still looks positive, and I think if you look at the swing states and where she is right now, she’s got a lead. But it’s certainly not in the bag. We have two months to go, and I think it’s going to be a competitive race all the way through. I would say she’s got at least a 60 percent chance of winning.”

    At the same time, Daschle said, “all the things that Trump has done, the numbers should be far more explicitly in her favor, but they’re not.”

    Among Democrats’ concerns is the fact that Clinton spent a great deal of time over the summer raising millions of dollars in private fundraisers while Trump was devoting much of his schedule to rallies, speeches and TV appearances — although many of those didn’t go as well as his campaign may have hoped. [snip]

    One new goal for Clinton now, aides said, is to spend more time trying to connect directly with voters by sharing a more personal side of herself — and by telling them where she wants to take the country. [snip]

    Trump’s campaign, meanwhile, battling historic unpopularity and a flood of public Republican defections, has been delighted and somewhat relieved to see the polls tighten. Aides attributed the change to Trump’s packed August schedule, including a visit to Mexico, as well as increased discipline — at least by Trump standards.

    Just as Trump was repeatedly underestimated during the Republican primaries, his aides say he is again being underestimated heading into the general election. There’s a sense in the campaign that things are finally coming together and that Trump can propel himself ahead of Clinton over the next two months. [snip]

    It’s really quite amazing that after the Trump adventure this is still a competitive race,” said Scott Reed, chief strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a longtime Republican operative who managed Bob Dole’s 1996 presidential campaign.

    Stuart Stevens, Mitt Romney’s former chief strategist, threw cold water on Trump’s enthusiasm in an interview Friday, saying he has yet to see Trump outperform Romney in any state or with any demographic in a way that would signal that he has a chance to win. Stevens said that any talk of Trump having a ground game is “fantasy” because Trump has yet to build a campaign structure anything like Clinton’s. Stevens called Trump’s optimism “childish.”

    I don’t see the path. I just don’t see the path,” Stevens said. “I’ve been in these races where you’re nine points down, then you’re five down — you’re still losing.”

    Even among Democrats who wonder why Clinton isn’t doing better, the overall view is that she remains in position to win in November. [snip]

    Some changes in Clinton’s operation are already in evidence on the campaign trail. Among them: more interaction with the media; a series of policy speeches that Clinton’s communications director, Jennifer Palmieri, said are “more about her than about him”; and a shift back toward positive messages in television advertising and efforts to present positive elements of Clinton’s biography elsewhere.

    By the end of this week, the first in which she has traveled on the same plane as her press corps, Clinton had appeared four times before their cameras to answer questions.

    Clinton also played to the cameras and showed a flash of irreverent humor Friday when, after she had left the podium following a short press conference on national security issues, she paused and then returned to answer a shouted question about Trump. With dramatic timing and a sardonic smile, Clinton slowly shook her head and took a breath before addressing Trump’s perhaps ill-advised appearance on a television network backed by the Kremlin.

    “Every day that goes by, this just becomes more of a reality-television show,” she said. “It’s not a serious presidential campaign. And it is beyond one’s imagination to have a candidate for president praising a Russian autocrat like Vladimir Putin and throwing his lot in with him,” Clinton said.

    Clinton also addressed head-on the perception that she is chilly or aloof, telling the online interview site Humans of New York on Thursday that her natural reserve is born of the “hard path” she walked as a professional woman.

    “I had to learn as a young woman to control my emotions,” she wrote. “And that’s a hard path to walk. Because you need to protect yourself, you need to keep steady, but at the same time you don’t want to seem ‘walled off.’ And sometimes I think I come across more in the ‘walled off’ arena.”

    She continued: “And if I create that perception, then I take responsibility. I don’t view myself as cold or unemotional. And neither do my friends. And neither does my family. But if that sometimes is the perception I create, then I can’t blame people for thinking that.”

    In addition, a television ad released Friday features a relaxed-looking Clinton speaking directly to the camera and making a bipartisan pitch that weaves in some biographical high points from her long career. It was the first positive ad released recently, after a string of harsh ones that mostly use Trump’s own past statements against him while barely mentioning her.

    “We’ve got to bring people together. That’s how you solve problems, and that’s what I’ll do as president,” she said in the ad.

    Clinton holds several important advantages: She has experience and credentials, a vast campaign operation that drew the best political talent of her party, the hearty support of a popular sitting president and what seems to be plenty of money. She is marginally more popular than Trump.

    She also has significant disadvantages. It’s difficult for either party to win a third consecutive term, as evidenced by the fact that Republican George H.W. Bush is the only example in decades. A sizable number of voters think the country is on the wrong track.

    And Clinton is a highly unpopular candidate in her own right. Democrats maintain in particular that Clinton faces unprecedented obstacles as both the first woman to be a major-party nominee and the object of sustained Republican attack for 25 years. [snip]

    He claimed the campaign’s strategy “has enabled us to take full advantage of Donald Trump’s deep unpopularity” but warned that “this election will be harder to win than many people think.”

    John Morgan, a Florida donor and supporter, said Clinton’s slim lead is not surprising, given the strong partisan divide nationally.

    “Politics is like sports. You have your team, and you are sticking with them all the way. If you are an FSU fan, there is nothing that your team could do to cause you to root against them, much less pull for Florida,” Morgan said, using the football rivalry of Florida State University and the University of Florida to make his point.

    A slim margin of victory is still victory, Morgan said, and still would give Clinton a strong governing mandate. [snip]

    Democratic pollster Peter D. Hart took the opposite position, saying that Clinton cannot afford to just squeak past an opponent as bad as Trump.

    “Hillary Clinton needs to win, but she needs a victory which will allow her to say the American public has voted for an agenda that they want her to implement,” he said.

    The premises in this Washington Post article are so slanted they cannot arrive at the intelligent conclusions we did. The #1 reason for why Hillary2016 is in such deep trouble is that Barack Obama is a failure and Hillary’s campaign is run as the Obama third term. The corollary #2 reason is that this is a change election. The candidate of change wins.

  14. Obama’s #1 accomplishment according to Dimocrats is ObamaCare. Hillary2016 supports ObamaCare. ObamaCare is a failure:

    Editorial: Why Obamacare failed

    Come November, the grim trudge across the increasingly barren Obamacare landscape begins anew. Illinois consumers likely face staggering price hikes for individual insurance policies. Some types of plans could cost an average of 43 percent to 55 percent more. Ditto across the country: A first tranche of states approved 2017 rates with similarly cardiac-arrest-inducing premium increases.

    Many Illinois consumers will find fewer choices because major carriers fled this market. UnitedHealthcare bolted. So did Aetna. Land of Lincoln Health collapsed mid-year, leaving policy holders to scramble for coverage that could cost them plenty. In many places across Illinois and the nation, people will find drastically fewer choices of plans than they did last year.

    Those insurers fled because they didn’t want to lose more money on a government-run market that is so far out of whack — a market they think likely will never be profitable for them. That isn’t surprising, as we enumerate below. [snip]

    Obamacare failed because it flunked Economics 101 and Human Nature 101. It straitjacketed insurers into providing overly expensive, soup-to-nuts policies. It wasn’t flexible enough so that people could buy as much coverage as they wanted and could afford — not what the government dictated. Many healthy people primarily want catastrophic coverage. Obamacare couldn’t lure them in, couldn’t persuade them to buy on the chance they’d get sick.

    Obamacare failed because the penalties for going uncovered are too low when stacked against its skyrocketing premium costs. Next year, the penalty for staying uninsured is $695 per adult, or perhaps 2.5 percent of a family’s taxable household income. That’s far less than many Americans would pay for coverage. Financial incentive: Skip Obamacare.

    Obamacare failed because insurance is based on risk pools — that is, the lucky subsidize the unlucky. The unlucky who have big health problems (and big medical bills) reap much greater benefits than those who remain healthy and out of the doctors’ office. But Obamacare’s rules hamstring insurers. They can’t exclude people for pre-existing conditions, and can’t charge older customers more than three times as much as the young. Those are good goals, but they skew the market in ways Obamacare didn’t figure out how to offset. Result: Young and healthy consumers pay far more in premiums than their claims (probably) would justify in order to subsidize the unexpectedly large influx of older, sicker customers who require expensive care. Too many unlucky people, too few lucky people: That will collapse any insurance scheme.

    Obamacare failed because it allowed Americans to sign up after they got sick and needed help paying all those medical bills. Insurance should be structured so that, although you don’t know if you’ll need it, you pay for it anyway, just in case; your alternative is financial doom. But if you can game the system and, for example, buy auto coverage after you crash into your garage, then you have no incentive to buy insurance beforehand.

    Obamacare failed because it hasn’t tamed U.S. medical costs. Health care is about supply and demand: People who get coverage use it, especially if the law mandates free preventive care. Iron law of economics: Nothing is free; someone pays. To pretend otherwise was folly. Those forces combined to spike the costs of care, and thus insurance costs.

    Obamacare failed because too many carriers simply can’t cover expenses, let alone turn a profit, in this rigidly controlled system. Take Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois, the state’s dominant Obamacare insurer. Last year, for every dollar the carrier collected, it spent $1.32 buying care and providing services for customers, according to BCBS President Maurice Smith. No wonder BCBS is proposing rate increases from 23 percent to 45 percent for its individual plans.

    We wrote all of the above before the obamination passed. ObamaCare was a lie from the beginning, a fake insurance scam from a flim-flam man.

  15. Wbboei I agree with you about Russia. Hillary is trying to start up something with Russia and Putin and there’s nothing there. I’m on Twitter many hours a day and I can tell you that all the pro-Trump supporters there have no problem with Putin and respect his strength. They’re not afraid of Putin and they don’t think he had anything to do with the WikiLeaks, or that Russia is messing with Ametican elections. The only ones who are screaming about Trump praising or respecting Putin are Hillary and her supporters.

  16. Wow, what’s with the dems repeatedly referring to Trump’s “historical unpopularity”? He’s only been a politician for a year.

    They can’t figure out why Hillary isn’t doing better because she has these great things. I didn’t notice any strengths listed for Trump. But they mention all these *bad* things about Trump. But the worst they list about Hillary is – she’d be the first female president, she’s suffered 25 years of Republican attacks, she’s had to fight the patriarchy so she’s perceived as aloof, and she spent too much time raising money instead of connecting directly with voters.

    So they can’t figure out why she isn’t doing better, don’t mention the difference in rallies or enthusiasm (oh yeah, that’s just the deplorables), and don’t mention her scandals all coming out. Are they really that stupid, or just want to ignore the reality of what so many voters are so freaked out about?

  17. admin September 10, 2016 at 2:22 am Obama’s #1 accomplishment according to Dimocrats is ObamaCare.
    —-

    Via one of Hillary’s own ads new to me this morning, she claims that the healthcare act was passed with cooperation of Republicans. Some one’s going to have to pound in the fact that BO had majorities both houses.

    I also caught rerun of Big Dawg in Pittsburgh yesterday, introduced by PA Mike Doyle who spewed innumerable lies while introducing him, including that Obama never had a Congress he could work with.

    So they’re very Dimocratic trying to have it both ways.

    Trump should be able to ride that statement all the way to a November 8 landslide.

  19. Lorac:

    They ignore reality and alter it to their needs whenever they can.

    For instance, we all know Hillary can’t fill a broom closet, yet I saw some Lib who hosts a Showtime series called The Circus: Inside the Greatest Political Show on Earth (which is produced by Bloomberg) on The Kelly File last night & the clips they showed from this alleged documentary were all tight shots to make Hillary look like she was getting huge crowds and they even distorted the “roar” of the crowds — it sounded like thousands were there.
    Total distortion of reality.
    I don’t have Showtime anyway, but even if I did — I wouldn’t be watching what is obviously a Hillary PR ad disguised as documentary.

  20. If Hillary wants to reduce this election to ad hominum attacks like racist, homeophobe, male chavinist pig, and ignore the nations problems, then she is inviting counter charges like liar, crook, and globalist on the pad for Soros and Goldy sacks from the other side, and, frankly, you do not need to look very far, or jump through hoops of any kind to find it, because that evidence is right there before your eyes hiding in plain view. And even for that individual who is living in a cave in Afghanistan if he has satellite television the debates will settle that issue conclusively and with finality. No hide and seek with subpoenas, no charges of sexism, no contentions that you cannot believe it without a degree of proof to a moral certainty which is higher than beyond reasonable doubt fuck that legal shit. What you see is what you get. Trump and her may both be part of the 1%, but the difference he speaks on behalf of the American People and she speaks on behalf of Wall Street.

  21. she speaks on behalf of Wall Street.
    —-
    And ANYONE who does not see it, with the evidence everywhere you look, has a terminal case of wilful blindness. Then, the question becomes, what has Wall Street ever done for you, other than create market bubbles, let them burst and reach into taxpayers pockets to bail them out, and socialize the costs of the bail out and privatize the profits. And run an endless chain of Goldman Sachs commercials to create the impression that Goldman must prosper lest the generations fail. What a scam/

  22. chaulk it up to catching on to Trump telling it like it is and what many people are thinking but won’t say out loud…

    Hillary is boring…straight out…boring…

    …yesterday everyone was holding their breath waiting for her to come out of her “expert” bipartisan security meeting to speak to the press…

    she came out…she looked like she had just woken up from a nap…and was still very tired…

    she spoke in a very slow, almost whispering low tone…probably not to bring on a coughing fit, because her voice did seem to crack a little…
    but the bottom line is she has no energy…

    and she “drones” on…(i think she does it purposefully to try to sound ‘so intelligent’ but it ends up dragging on and on)

    she is boring…and people wonder why she does not bring out ‘enthusiasm’…she does not have any…

  23. The Obama Legacy:

    1. First Black President

    2. First President to have a Parasite named in his honor

    3. First President to Condemn his country 24/7.

    And a fine legacy it is . . .

    Now where did I put that vaudeville hook?

  24. guess i wasn’t the only one that noticed the obvious

    Hillary Clinton Ducks Behind Pillar to Keep Press From Filming Her Coughing

    A listless, tired looking Clinton had been speaking and taking questions for about fourteen minutes when she first ended her press conference but came right back to the microphone to answer a shouted question about her rival Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump speaking to Larry King on King’s show that is on Russian owned RT.

    Clinton spoke for another two minutes then abruptly cut herself off, turned and walked away, curtly saying to the press as she turned her back on them, “Thank you all.”

    As soon as Clinton was behind the pillar immediately stage right a loud double cough could be heard. As Clinton stepped past the pillar her closed right hand could be seen coming down from her face, as one does when coughing.

    It would appear that reports focusing attention on Clinton’s coughing fits on the campaign trail have rattled her so that she feels the need to not be seen coughing on camera.

    These are not his words, but the thought he expressed:

    Hillary’s greatest lifetime accomplishment is ducking jail time…Seriously.

    And he dinged her for giving away that she’d not put boots on the ground. “I may do the same thing. But I’m not going to TELL them”

    And that’s been a welcome upper for my afternoon.

  28. Soros, the most evil man alive, is working to control the outcome of the 2016 presidential election giving it to Hillary Clinton. Here is how he plans on getting the job done for the elites and his Globalist Agenda.

    Soros and liberal groups seeking top election posts in battleground states

    By Chuck Neubauer – The Washington Times – Thursday, June 23, 2011

    A small tax-exempt political group with ties to wealthy liberals like billionaire financier George Soros has quietly helped elect 11 reform-minded progressive Democrats as secretaries of state to oversee the election process in battleground states and keep Republican “political operatives from deciding who can vote and how those votes are counted.”

    Known as the Secretary of State Project (SOSP), the organization was formed by liberal activists in 2006 to put Democrats in charge of state election offices, where key decisions often are made in close races on which ballots are counted and which are not.

    The group’s website said it wants to stop Republicans from “manipulating” election results.

    “Any serious commitment to wresting control of the country from the Republican Party must include removing their political operatives from deciding who can vote and whose votes will count,” the group said on its website, accusing some Republican secretaries of state of making “partisan decisions.”

    SOSP has sought donations by describing the contributions as a “modest political investment” to elect “clean candidates” to the secretary of state posts.

    Named after Section 527 of the Internal Revenue Code, so-called 527 political groups — such as SOSP — have no upper limit on contributions and no restrictions on who may contribute in seeking to influence the selection, nomination, election, appointment or defeat of candidates to federal, state or local public office. They generally are not regulated by the Federal Election Commission (FEC), creating a soft-money loophole.

    While FEC regulations limit individual donations to a maximum of $2,500 per candidate and $5,000 to a PAC, a number of 527 groups have poured tens of millions of unregulated dollars into various political efforts.

    SOSP has backed 11 winning candidates in 18 races, including such key states as Ohio, Nevada, Iowa, New Mexico and Minnesota.

    “Supporting secretary of state candidates with integrity is one of the most cost-efficient ways progressives can ensure they have a fair chance of winning elections,” SOSP said on its website, adding that “a relatively small influx of money — often as little as $30,000 to $50,000 — can change the outcome of a race.”

    SOSP was formed in the wake of the ballot-counting confusion in Florida during the 2000 presidential election and a repeat of that chaos in Ohio in the 2004 presidential election. Democrats accused Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris and Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell, both Republicans, of manipulating the elections in favor of GOP candidates — charges Mrs. Harris and Mr. Blackwell denied.

    “Does anyone doubt that these two secretaries of state … made damaging partisan decisions about purging voter rolls, registration of new voters, voting machine security, the location of precincts, the allocation of voting machines, and dozens of other critical matters?” SOSP asked on its website.

    SOSP said it raised more than $500,000 in 2006 to help elect five Democratic secretaries of states in seven races.

    The Commission on Federal Election Reform, co-chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James A. Baker III, recommended in 2005 taking away the administration of elections from secretaries of state and giving it to nonpartisan election officers.

    “Partisan officials should not be in charge of elections,” said Robert Pastor, co-director of the Center for Democracy and Election Management at American University. “Both Democrats and Republicans not only compete for power, they try to manipulate the rules to get an advantage.

    “We want to make sure that those counting votes don’t have a dog in that game,” said Mr. Pastor, who served as executive director and a member of the commission.

    One of the SOSP’s financial backers is Mr. Soros, the billionaire hedge-fund operator who spent $27 million in 2004 in an unsuccessful effort to defeat President George W. Bush. Mr. Soros spent $5.1 million in the 2008 election supporting Democratic candidates and causes. In 2008, he gave $10,000 to SOSP.

    A spokesman for Mr. Soros downplayed the financier’s role in the project.

    “He supports the organization,” said Michael Vachon, who manages Mr. Soros‘ political donations. “He was in favor of electing Democrats secretary of state. George was not a founder of the project, and he never had an operational role or helped plan strategy.”

    But many of SOSP’s founders and supporters have long-standing ties to Mr. Soros and the organizations he founded or helped fund, including Democracy Alliance, a liberal-leaning group whose membership includes some of the country’s wealthiest Democrats. Created in 2005 with major financial backing from Mr. Soros and millionaire Colorado businessmen and gay-rights activist Tim Gill, Democracy Alliance has helped direct nearly $150 million to progressive organizations.

    SOSP’s founders include Michael Kieschnick, a Democracy Alliance member who also is president of a telecommunications company that donates to progressive nonprofit groups; James Rucker, former director of Soros-supported MoveOn.org, a stridently anti-Bush group known for its ads comparing Mr. Bush to Adolf Hitler; and Becky Bond, former director at ActBlue, a political committee that bills itself as “the nation’s largest source of funds for Democrats,” whose contributors include Mr. Soros.

    Mr. Kieschnick, Mr. Rucker and Ms. Bond did not respond to emails and telephone messages seeking comment.

    Democracy Alliance members who gave to SOSP include furniture company heir John R. Hunting; computer company executive Paul Rudd; medical-supply firm heiress Pat Stryker; venture capitalist Nicholas Hanauer; ex-Clinton administration official Rob Stein; Tides Foundation founder Drummond Pike; real estate developer Robert Bowditch; charitable foundation co-chairman Scott Wallace; clothing executive Susie Tompkins Buell; real estate developer Albert Dwoskin; child psychologist Gail Furman; and Taco Bell heir Rob McKay.

    Ms. Furman also is president of the Furman Foundation, a major donor to the Soros-backed Tides Center, which has provided more than $300 million to “progressive” causes.

    much more in detail at link below:

    …..

    Soros has put YEARS into this project knowing full well it s NOT the POPULAR VOTE that wins elections; it is the number of ELECTORAL VOTES that determines which candidate will be the next president of the United States.

    There is no doubt in my mind Trump will win the Popular Vote BUT he can’t WIN if the electoral votes are skewed in Hillary’s favor. It appears most that most of the SOS in the Battleground states are Democrats/

  31. Q: Is this just an email scandal? Or, is it something more??

    1. The Washington Post editorial board recently argued it was time to stop asking Hillary Clinton about her email server. “The Hillary Clinton email story is out of control,” it said. This is not an issue, it’s a distraction.

    2. Calling this an email story is a goddamned lie. It is a story about corruption/ treason/ cover-up / lying story.

    3. But it is even more fundamental than that. It is a story about the hijacking of our democracy by someone in high public office.

    4. The same Washington Post that dismisses this concern, obsesses over the speculation that Putin seeks to hijack our democracy. Even though this is unproven whereas hers is proven.

    5. If you judge Hillary by her actions, it becomes obvious that in her world view, the future of this nation does not belong to its citizens, but to the well heeled, the well connected and illegal aliens.

    6. That is the bottom line of her candidacy. That is what every voter needs to understand. The email scandal is not a distraction as WashPo would have you believe. It is the smoking gun. At the same time it is a harbinger of our future if she is elected. In that case, our democracy will succumb to the pattern of history where bribery is coin of the realm.

    7. Thus, the 2016 race is the Flight 93 election in the sense that the plane is being hijacked with the full support of big media, and most people do not even know it.

    5. The Washington Post is corrupt to the core. Voters must ignore them, and realize that a votgIt therefore follows that beyond all the rhetoric of a first woman president, a vote for Hillary is a vote for exactly that–hijacking democracy.

    4. That, more than anything else, is what voters need to understand.

    2. Yet the same Washington Post published an AP article only the day before describing Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter’s warning of the danger posed by Russia’s hybrid war. “Hybrid war”, as the AP article suggested is the process by which the political institutions of the West are themselves attacked.

  33. Update: At the end of our article we linked the disaster Obama economy to Hillary Clinton’s latest race-baiting of Donald J. Trump supporters. When we wrote the article we made reference near the end to “Hillary2016 is now reduced to insulting Trump supporters“. The reference was to Hillary Clinton’s interview with Israeli television and her despicable “basket of deplorables” attack against Trump supporters. At the time we wrote the article we came up with a surprise.

    We were surprised that it was impossible for us to find a Youtube or even many Google references to Hillary’s despicable “basket of deplorables” comment. We don’t know if Google or Youtube were blocking access to what was clear to us was a very despicable and very stupid comment by Hillary Clinton. Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” Youtube eventually appeared in our comments section but only in an entire interview, not a selected clip – because such a clip did not exist.

    That’s all changed now and many are missing the point about the “basket of deplorables”. For whatever reason the first “basket of deplorables” comment got some attention, but not as much as it deserved. Then came last night and the second “basket of deplorables” comment exploded. Why did “basket of deplorables” go from a curiosity at Big Pink to major explosion?

    The reason the despicable “basket of deplorables” comment by Hillary Clinton went from obscurity to prominence is due to Hillary Clinton. Last night at an LGBTQ fund raiser with Barbra Streisand in New York Hillary Clinton once again attacked Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables”. That’s the point, Hillary repeated “basket of deplorables” because it is a campaign strategy. Granted, it is a stupid campaign strategy, but it is deliberate, not accidental. It’s also doomed to failure.


    The idea is to isolate Donald J. Trump supporters and hint to Big Media that the way to protect the Obama third term is to denounce Donald J. Trump and Donald J. Trump supporters as “racist”. Hillary2016 believes that in 2008 the despicable Obama campaign strategy of calling Hillary and Bill Clinton “racists” worked. If it worked for Obama in 2008, reasons Hillary2016, why won’t the “racist” race-bait work for Hillary2016? What goes around comes around. It’s a recycle of the LBJ “Frontlash” strategy against Barry Goldwater.

    Hillary Clinton on Saturday has emitted a phony “apology” for her statement. But at the moment the idiots at Hillary2016 are happy they put the basket of deplorables “meme” into circulation. What the saps at Hillary2016 hindquarters don’t understand is that the “racist” card is so played out, all Hillary Clinton has managed to do is drive the softer Donald J. Trump supporters into “silent majority” mode. Soft Donald J. Trump supporters who do not want to be called “racists” will vote for Donald J. Trump but when a Clinton campaign staffer calls or a Big Media pollster calls to ask for their opinion these soft on the outside but firm in the inside Donald J. Trump supporters will lie and say they are “undecided” or “leaning” to Hillary. But come November these “silent majority” voters will vote Trump.

    Speaking of “baskets” in the 2008 election cycle we Hillary Clinton supporters loved and played repeatedly a YouTube of another “basket”. Yup, in 2008 every chance we got we played our favorite Youtube. It was the “basket bunch” featuring a lantern-jawed Moose in high heels:



    How’s them baskets?

    ————————————————————-

  34. Desperate for something than the other Sat PM fare offered today, I did something I’d not done since 2008. Watched PBS News. It has a weekend edition now, and tonight it covered Hillary’s deplorable comment. And could not resist a tweet:

    Enjoyed @PBS weekend news. On @HillaryClinton remark, interesting that many like myself, who supported her in 2008, now R 4 @RealDonaldTrump

  35. So Hillary has called us deplorable twice in public. As someone on Twitter said, imagine what she says about us at those $250,000 talks for the special rich people that have no transcript or video….

  36. S – “at least” she seems to be trying to hide it now. I was blown away that when she was holding the microphone in her hand and had that 4 minute coughing attack, she didn’t think to move the microphone away from her mouth. So she wasn’t only obviously coughing, but it was being amplified….

  37. I wish when they do exit polls on Nov 8, they would also take demographics of the Trump supporters – age, gender, sexuality, religion, race, traditional party voted, etc…. show how diverse the darn basket of deplorables is…

  38. That comment by Hillary that half Trump supporters, mostly blue collar whites would be my guess are deplorable, tells us that there is something very dark, menacing and psychotic about her. To her these people are untouchables, unwashed, the lowest members in her cast system, the enemy, der untermensch, the group to be silenced and ultimately eliminated. This hate filled comment crosses the Rubicon, or more precisely the river Styx. It calls to mind the comments of her biggest backer Soros when he was asked on 60 minutes whether he felt any sense of remorse over confiscating the last effects of Jews bound for the death camps and he replied not in the least, they were the losers and I was the winner. It was no different than a market transaction. Hillary’s reference to people who disagree with her as “deplorables” invites thugs to attack them, harbingers government persecution of those with dissenting views if she becomes president, which big media continues to assure us is likely if not completely certain.

  39. Yes, we are Crooked Clinton’s Deplorables!
    We deplore, every crime that Hillary Crooked Clinton has committed.
    We deplore, her negligence bringing about death in Benghazi.
    We deplore, her lies to the parents and family of the murdered Americans in Benghazi.
    We deplore, her destruction of 30,000 emails that belong to the American people.
    We deplore, her abuse of her office as Secretary of State and using her access and influence in her Pay to Play Scheme.
    We deplore, her immoral conduct, her egotistical self-righteous attitude towards all of these well-deserved accusations; from defending a child rapist in 1975, knowing full well he was guilty and getting him off with time served, to Hillary’s current corruption of Pay to Play, by Selling access to the U.S. State Department, Donations in return for Bill Clinton speeches, etcetera.
    We deplore, her because she is simply absurd!

  40. Blasting “False Economy,” Trump Takes on the Federal Reserve:

    Taking aim at the Federal Reserve’s politically motivated manipulation of the U.S. economy, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump blasted the controversial central bank’s artificially low interest rates. He also denounced the “very false economy” propped up by Fed monetary gimmicks. Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, though, hit back immediately, saying Trump should not malign or even comment on the increasingly unpopular institution that controls America’s monetary system.

    Trump’s comments, which sparked national headlines, came earlier this week at an Ohio campaign stop in response to a question from a reporter about possible interest rate hikes by the Fed later this month. “They’re keeping the rates down so that everything else doesn’t go down,” Trump explained, touching on one of the establishment’s big secrets. “We have a very false economy.”

    Trump did not question why the U.S. economy should be at the mercy of artificially established interest rates set by unelected and unaccountable central planners, rather than market forces. Instead, the candidate merely pointed out that the situation could not go on as it is. “At some point the rates are going to have to change,” he observed. “The only thing that is strong is the artificial stock market.”

    The Fed, which has claimed immunity from federal transparency laws by pointing out in court that it is a privately owned corporation rather than government agency, has been hinting that it would raise interest rates for months. However, experts say the “false economy” may well blow up if and when rates finally go up, potentially setting the stage for a landslide victory for Trump. Eventually, disaster will strike either way without fundamental reforms to the corrupt monetary system.

    Trump’s comments on the stock market, while almost totally overlooked by the establishment media, were also right on the money. As The New American reported two years ago, the stock market is now dominated by governments and central banks, which in 2014 had some $30 trillion invested in equities and other assets. That may prop up prices temporarily, but the huge and growing economic distortions will bring massive pain in the months and years ahead as they inevitably blow up.  

  41. Hillary stepped in it. It seems to me that her “basket of deplorables” (Google has 954,000 search results so they must have given up trying to deep-six it) which she used twice and very specifically, once in a foreign press interview in Israel I suppose to get the word out to international Davos bankers and maybe the Arab world, and again for her crony donors at a fundraiser. It is very Merkel-ish. While the Trumpsters picked up on the rhyme and cultural similarity with Les Miserables, Victor Hugo’s masterpiece of revolution, revolt, and redemption, Hillary is dog whistling another rhyming dehumanizing social system that has blighted the world. The Untouchables of Hindu India, those subhuman souls who exist to be abused, used, starved, covered in shit and discarded at will by higher and elite castes. In Hillary’s globalist world the untouchables are called “deplorables” (a awkward made up noun from the stunningly ignorant brains of her speech writers) to other, dehumanize, demean, separate, make fun of, and socially brutalize millions of people who don’t agree with her donors or her or their plans for a new world caste system of which she is the unnatural top of the dung heap.

    Pathetic, skinny, croaking old Bill is out there flaking for the elite money men running the global climate scam dehumanizing his 1992 and 1996 coal country voters (and 2008 Hillary voters) like a bought, money-grubbing shill of a pitchman who would sell his mother for a buck. It is all about the wealth transfer from energy producers (and the people, regions, workers, owners who worked like dogs for generations, developed the technology, and took all the risk) to the non-producing but controlling taxers and domination by the international rent seekers wanting their cut first and the power to dole out and deny energy consumption based on their priorities, in-grouping and profit. Save the planet my ass. Ruin coal first then oil and gas. Uranium too which the Clintons’ have an interesting history of selling off to oligarchs for fun and favors as well as bucks. What nasty business and globalist fever dreams do these wretched Clintons’ (don’t forget Chelsea and her crooked, bumbling, asshole Wall St husband) not have a hand in? As Trump said the mask is ripped off.

  42. BREXIT, Trump, Le Pen, Duterte, are all part of a larger global trend away from Centralization towards Nationalism. Whether you like or despise these people/ issues is irrelevant. Their popularity is the product of the last eight years of Cronyism/ Central Planning.

    This terrifies the global elites, particularly those who have been riding the crony capitalist gravy train to $ billions. It also terrifies those who link their power and prestige to the current system (Central Bankers, academic economists, and media shills).

    This is why you are seeing shilling occur on an unprecedented scale in the media. Those who’ve made fortunes from market bubbles (Mark Cuban for one) as well as the usual Keynesian shills (Krugman, etc) are out in full force claiming that if the system doesn’t maintain the status quo, the world will effectively end. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-09-10/era-central-planning-crumbling-and-elite-are-terrified

    Everyone is noticing. And right before an US general election. Lucky Trump.

  43. Basket of Deplorables. That is the end. Hillary has branded herself as a condescending elitist who is out of touch with the needs of the society she is bidding to elect her. That just will not work.

    She is obviously got a promise from Blofeld that he will deliver the election to her, if she just does what he says. Yes, the control of the swing states, by the Governors or the SOS, is definitely in play. So far, Trump has been an excellent strategist. I sure hope he has a plan for this. Sorfeld must be crushing many of his minions for failure and he is becoming more and more visible. Like he does not even care at this point. Never a word on BM about the wikileaks. His tentacles run through them all. Who is deplorable?

  44. I think Hillary has lost her mind.
    —-
    To say nothing of her soul.

    And there is no way in the world she can outwit this devil–Soros

    Any more than his dancing panda Obama can.

    It is a shame that so many confuse the puppet (Obama) with the puppeteer (Soros)

    The paper I wrote about this in 2009 to reveal that connection

    Fell upon deaf ears, because the ignoranti elected him again in 2012

    American caught tying to rig this election should be hung on the spot.

    Sure, that is barbaric, and contrary to the rule of law.

    But it needs to be squeched in the moment, and deterrence is essential.

    Therefore, while I do not advocate it, if it were to happen I would welcome it.

    Justice delayed is justice denied.

  45. You see, I have no patience with people rigging elections.

    And no confidence that some judge appointed by Obama would resist the political temptation to let that miscreant off the hook.

    Look at Holder. Before he was AJ he was a judge. I rest my case.

  46. The Holder reference was to Lois Learner who was caught red handed destroying voting rights under color of the IRS, and history shows he let her off the hook. That is what you must be wary of from any Obama appointed Judge. And, to some extent those appointed by RINOs–like Roberts. When the harm is irreparable and immediate, the remedy at law is inadequate, and no injunction will issue, it is frustrating to have to sit on your hands and watch the bad guys destroy this country before your very eyes.

  47. es, the control of the swing states, by the Governors or the SOS, is definitely in play. So far, Trump has been an excellent strategist. I sure hope he has a plan for this. Sorfeld must be crushing many of his minions for failure and he is becoming more and more visible.
    —-
    That makes for interesting copy.

    Suppose, for the sake of argument, that you were one of those minions

    Those Soros sleeper cell enthusiasts ready to rise up like a corpse at the appointed moment

    And destroy the election

    I visualize a cadaver like Kaine with that maniacal grin

    Suddenly you find a knife at your navel as well as one in your back

    The question then becomes how do you want to die

    If you are already a cadaver, perhaps it does not matter

    And many dims today are exactly that.

    Wilful blindness to treason is beyond the pale of political discourse.

  48. BREAKING…

    Hillary had to leave the 9-11 memorial service…she left with the help of an aide holding her…her shoe fell off…and she had to be taken to her car and driven away…she stumbled, knees buckeled and was taken away…sources say it appeared to be a medical issue

  49. To be clear, that pay to play scheme is not only a violation of RICO, it is treason in its most raw form. A candidate suspected of that, based on compelling evidence, has no business running for president. But when that candidate goes a step further, and calls the productive class in this society deplorables, it is more than a throw away line in a campaign. Twice said, it goes to something more fundamental, i.e. her state of mind. And if you give unlimited power to such an individual, you must assume that she would act upon that impulse. The historical reference to Bloody Mary and her burning at stake of Protestants is not too far fetched. Language, you see, is not merely descriptive of what one believes, it is prescriptive of what one will do, as an old law professor of mine used to say. As suggested above, these two factors are, and should be perceived as a blinking red light. Whatever Trump’s alleged defects may be in the eyes of some, they are as nothing compared to those two cardinal offenses against our republic. Do the people who are sovereign under the constitution understand this, when big media does everything it can to hide the truth? Very soon we will know the answer to that urgent question.

    Anyone have any information regarding this? Sounds serious. Is this where Hillary departs the race?

    Hillary Clinton has ‘medical episode’ at 9/11 ceremony, source says

    Hillary Clinton had a “medical episode” that required her to leave a 9/11 commemoration ceremony early, a law enforcement source who witnessed the event told Fox News.

    The Democratic presidential nominee appeared to faint on her way into her van and had to be helped by her security, the source said. She was “clearly having some type of medical episode.”

    Clinton’s stumbled off the curb, her “knees buckled” and she lost a shoe as she was helped into a van during her “unexpected early departure,” a witness told Fox News.

    A separate law enforcement source told Fox News that Clinton left the event because she wasn’t feeling well.

    Clinton’s campaign did not immediately respond to calls seeking comment.

    Big media: oh, the perils of high heels.

  53. Big media: we need to form a new department in the Consumer Safety Agency, run by Harvard people, to investigate the threat of high heels to high heels in government, and make a 2000 page report to Congress.

  54. I saw her on camera when she was leaning on a man and he appeared to be holding her up…some witnesses said she seemed to have fainted…

    wbb…she does not wear high heels…she primarily wears flats or a very, very small, wide chunk heel…she could never walk in high heels…

  55. “…sources say it appeared to be a medical issue”

    How dare they make that assumption? That’s just deplorable. 😉

    Is this where Hillary departs the race?

    ———-
    Obviously, this is where they would like her to depart the race.

    And they may try to force her out.

    But tell me how you do that.

    How do you get her to renounce her life’s goal of being the first woman president?

    For most dims, and rinos, bribery would be the answer.

    But the Clintons have more money than god, so money is not a motivator.

    Furthermore, they had enough leverage over the system to slip the prosecutorial noose.

    In sum, the latter day Nazi elites, getting her out of the way presents a real dilemma.

  58. With Julian Assange poised to dump more relevant data into the cauldron of the Hillary campaign, this is beginning to look like the proverbial death by a thousand cuts.

  59. Daily Mail Editor David Martosko says:

    “Why do I get the feeling there will be thousands of people waving baskets at Trump’s rallys?”

    he says it would be great if they were filled with items for the Vets…

    Donald should send out the message to all supporters…fill your baskets with goodies for the vets when you come to the rally (they could leave them in a secure space at the entrance)

    I am going to tweet idea to Donald…others might do the same…

    My fear is who they will replace her with. or worse, is it possible to use this as an excuse to delay the election? I smell Obama and it stinks real bad.

    You are right.

    I was speaking metaphorically.

    You cannot trample the Constitution in 6 inch heels.

    The work Soros is directing requires hob nail boots.

  62. My fear is who they will replace her with. or worse, is it possible to use this as an excuse to delay the election? I smell Obama and it stinks real bad.
    ——
    Then you believe they will try to slip in Biden?

    Again, this is not Obama–it is Soros running the show.

    Pretty hard to do at this late date.

    And it would deny Hillary her life’s ambition.

    When Howard Baker, Hugh Scott, and others went to Nixon

    And asked him to step down, he wanted to step down

    Here, from Hillary, I get no indication this is possible

    On the other hand, I get every indication that she has the goods on everybody

    Including the big media beloved messiah, who is grasping for a legacy

    About the only leverage they have is a pardon

    And that does not play at this stage in the proceedings.

  63. I dunno, perhaps my imagination is just working overtime. Maybe Hillary just hit the Ketel One too hard last night after realizing the full impact of her basket-blunder.

    I had that concern as well, prior to the convention. Now, its too late to switch horse, especially when the horse refuses to be switched, and can kick the switchers in the teeth. I am not going to say what I am thinking, but assume if you can that you are Soros, you have totally corrupted big media and the secretary of state offices in key states, and now your horse falters as it approaches the finish line. What do you do? From Trump’s standpoint, mindful of every possibility, someone should be working on oppo research on Biden—I assume it has already been done on that snivelling white rabbit Kaine should they give that Wall Street shill the nod.

  65. CNN basically turning the issue around and in a sense deflecting and blaming Donald for Hillary getting ill
    ———–
    When all else fails, she is a woman, ergo a victim.

    Evidently, that is the best they can do.

    Victorian only when all else fails.

    He done her wrong, etc.

    Only one problem.

    How do you sympathize with someone who

    When 4 patriots dies

    Screams to the camera: what difference does it make?

  66. Anyone think the story last week in Politico about why isn’t Hillary ahead of Trump by double digits, the way the MSM decided to report the “basket of deplorables” comment (after they ignored it the week before when she said it during an interview on Israeli tv) and now NBC confirming medical incident today that this is the start of Hillary being forced to drop out “due to health issues” and Obama’s chosen nominee being put up?

    Because if Hillary does drop out, that is what happens — the DNC can put up whoever. Kaine doesn’t even have to be on the ticket.

    Or am I just being crazy?

  67. Trying to get the truth out of the Clinton campaign about her latest medical episode is like trying to get the truth out of North Korea.

  68. I am no diagnostician, but if I had to guess, I would say, in addition to the onset of Parkinsons and a possible brain concussion, and a thyroid disorder which add up to excellent health in the estimation of her physician, it is not unlikely that her past is catching up with the Clintons, in a way Ken Starr never could. And big media has puts its fingers and toes in every hole in the damn, and it is still leaking seawater. On the odds, the next leak will come from Assange.

  69. cnn and msnbc doing cartwheels to make excuses for her…

    it was excruiciatingly hot

    she keeps a very active schedule

    she never stops, press has hard time keeping up with her

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

    her camp stopped all media from photographing her during her departure…

    fwiw…when i first saw her on camera this morning I first thought she might be wearing a wig…

    then I thought no…but she looks really bad…

    in all truth and honesty…the woman looks exhausted

    …they say the Presidency ages people…it is really taking a toll on her…it shows on her face

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

    she would be so much better off just going back to her foundation and her family…she has two young grandchildren…she can still be on the world stage but this just does not seem in the cards for her…

    yes karma…

    and Assange in the wings…

  70. blow…

    believe it or not…Jake Tapper just played that clip on CNN

    it does not look good at all…she was being held up and stumbled hard while trying to walk to the van, then stumbled and buckled again and then fell over into the van…

    she had no strength at that point…

  71. they keep saying that Donald has not released any health info…why are they not, his supporters at least…stating that he is going on DR Oz on Wed to discuss health

  72. Getting a better look at it, it looks the way my Mom used to when she’d have an acute insulin reaction – that’s what we’d call it – blood sugar would precipitously plummet.

  73. CNN is taking the position that it isn’t a medical condition until a doctor who examines her says it is a medical condition, and if he says nothing, or says she is superb health for a woman who is in the full bloom of youth at the tender age of 67, then only a sexist would claim otherwise. That load of water these bastards carry for her gets heavier by the day. But hey, its less than 60 days before the corronation, so she does not need to hold out that long. Cheryl Mills is the presumptive Attorney General, and Eric Holder gets the first nomination to the Supreme Court. And Babara Streisand will be Ambassador to the UN. And Soros is formulating a back up plan just in case. He is telling the moles he has put in place to steal the election to follow orders, and if they get caught he will bet Obama to pardon them.

  74. Wbboei,

    I always love your posts and respect your insight. However if this is all true (which could be likely) and Soros has this election locked up and there’s nothing we can do about it, then why are we wasting time posting comments on this blog or any other blog? If this is a done deal then what’s the point of trump getting 10,000 or 100,000 people at his rallies. Are we just pissing in the wind?

    I get that this is a movement and everyone’s getting all patriotic but what’s the end result?

  75. And then there’s video of Hillary coming out of Chelsea’s home an hour later looking regular (well, as regular as she looks lately).

    I wonder if the party has rules about this (although of course as we know they’re not beholden to their own rules). I don’t know if the Sanders supporters have basically gone their own ways, or if they are still a “group”, but they’ll be pretty pissed if the candidate role doesn’t go to him.

    I don’t know if Hillary would ever voluntarily step aside, though.

  76. Outris, I see people posting that if there is a large enough difference in the popular vote, that the cheating won’t affect it. I’m guessing that means that perhaps they are limited to X amount of cheating to try to prevent being discovered.

  77. I think this might be a turning point.

    If not, the debates will be the big problem I think. I don’t think she can handle being attacked by Trump for 90 minutes. I don’t even think she has had a 90 minute appearance anywhere for a long time (at her events, others share the stage and she could be offstage, like with Streisand singing).

    He’ll have to be careful. If she starts showing some symptoms but is able to continue on at that point, he could be widely criticized for continuing to be tough against her if she then gets worse on stage.

  78. Outris – I know what you mean. If it helps, something I think is that there really is no one they can throw in there that is going to generate any more enthusiasm or votes than Hillary has. Sanders? No. Biden? Nah, he used to get, what, 1% when he has run for president, and no one even knows anything he has done while being VP. Some “new” face, maybe young and exciting, but to get anywhere in fewer than 60 days? Nah. And I think the people who would most flip over someone new and young are already in Hillary’s camp, the young and far left.

    I think this is Trump’s to lose. They predict that Hillary has more electoral votes, but that’s based on polling, which isn’t taking into consideration new voters or the monster vote that’s keeping quiet. Trump has the momentum, and he’s making progress with minorities and the youth vote.

    I, too, worry about the cheating. But I really think there’s a huge number of Trump supporters out there. And they’re motivated to vote.

  79. I’ve read some people’s opinion that all Hillary wants at this point – well, not “all”, but at the very least – is to win the election. Even if she has to step down after that. Well, I guess she would have to make it to January to be sworn in.

  80. There was a time in my life – I was 50 – when so many things went wrong that I could not handle much. Hillary seems to display some of what I experienced and so I commiserate with her a bit.

    For me, Xanax and gradual separation from the triggers was the cure. The triggers were my job and the family I shared the single family house with, so it took awhile.

    As has been stated here already, separation from her obligations to her party is really not an option. So a thought that has popped in and out of this mind since last summer, is back: could it wind up that she and Donald, as VP and POTUS, become the ticket of the party of change?

    I’m not really serious about this. I guess.

  81. Today is also an anniversary of Benghazi. Cannot believe I needed reminding. I’ll bet Hillary did not.

  82. two things bugging me…

    #1
    lorac & outris…and others of us concerned about the election being rigged and actually stolen…

    the hope that i am betting on is that donald has such a massive turnout…lines around the blocks…that his win is impossible to deny

    #2
    re: the discussion surrounding “basket of deplorables” and the lying BM and their spin

    as usual they are all saying the same thing
    they try to immediately turn it around and spin it that trump is racist and his supporters, especially at his rallys, are racists

    never a word is said about hillary’s supporters…how they blocked highways, assaulted women, young men and seniors…destroyed cars, threw eggs at women, shouted véry vulgar and racist statements at trump supporters, hit people to the point of drawing blood etc.

    they act as if Hillary’s supporters are all angels

    …having said all that my frustration is that none of BM will give one inch and cover all the policies donald has been laying out in 10 point details

    instead all they can says is no one is talking about issues

    no, BM…it is Hillary who is not talking about issues….she spends all her time trashing donald and his supporters

    DONALD IS TALKING ABOUT UNITY… helping the inner cities, school choice

    making things new better exciting

    Hillary and Bill and their supporters…it is nonstop negativity and race baiting

    sad…
