Why @RealDonaldTrump Wins: Don King For Trump And A Bush Tells A Kennedy He Will Vote For A Clinton

Donald J. Trump could not ask for a more powerful endorsement of his message than the latest Bush-Kennedy-Clinton news. Trump wins when Americans see the ruling political establishment lined up across party lines, in solidarity for the ruling political class establishment, and against Trump, the Final Avenger.

The ruling political establishment is doing everything to stop Trump and the “Deplorables”. The “racist” race card is played against Trump, the “birther” card is played against Trump, but all the news plays FOR Trump. Look at the news. Nate Silver, Al-Sisi, Don King, blacks, TrumpOcrats, Never-NeverTrump, Anthony’s weiner, the bombings – everything’s coming up roses for Trump.

What stinks more of a royal ruling class against the “deplorable” people, what reeks more of a “let them eat cake” retort against the masses demanding “bread” than a Bush telling a Kennedy he will vote for a Clinton?:

Over a 24-hour span that began with Jeb Bush’s surprising and sardonic cameo in Sunday’s Emmy Awards broadcast and Monday night’s reports that his father, former President George H.W. Bush, had told a family friend privately that he intended to support Hillary Clinton, the Bushes returned to the headlines, and are giving Trump just the establishment foil he so capably exploits.

“He probably loves that former President Bush isn’t backing him because it underlines his whole case against the establishment,” one former Jeb Bush campaign staffer said. “I bet he’s highlighting it in his stump speech before long.” [snip]

There is a mutual regard that exists, despite their obvious political differences, between the families,” one source close to the Bush family said. “And also a mutual disregard, a shared disgust for Trump as someone so far outside of that club.” [snip]

The elder Bush’s admission that he plans to vote for Clinton occurred during a board meeting for the former president’s Thousand Points of Light Foundation. Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, asked Bush about his choice during a receiving line and got a frank answer—which she then posted to her Facebook page, prompting news reports Monday and Tuesday confirming that Bush indeed plans to vote for Clinton. [snip]

“The reality is, if all of this meant something, Donald Trump would not be the nominee,” said Bruce Haynes, a GOP consultant in Washington. “Out in Raleigh and Des Moines, people don’t give a damn about what the Bushes say or do. If anything, they see the establishment politicians closing ranks around Clinton and are more emboldened to do the opposite.”

This is a remarkably transparent exhibition of the out of touch ruling political class. The American political class pimps out endorsements to their fellow dwarfs like hemophiliac blue-bloods on the Spanish throne deformed by generations of inbreeding.

These pimp endorsements might have worked wonders against dwarfs like Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. But against Donald J. Trump they fail.

The racist card fails against Trump when very famous African-Americans endorse Trump.


Trump has made “massive gains with black voters“. Without doubt, The Democratic Party’s worse nightmare happened when Donald Trump reached out to black Americans at a campaign rally in Wisconsin.Democrats Are Losing Control of Black Americans.”

It’s not just black voters! Hispanics too! Even some principled establishment courtiers are moving to Trump. One of Robert Kennedy’s top aides, Adam Walinsky who many will remember, is on board the TrumpTrain:

I Was RFK’s Speechwriter. Now I’m Voting for Trump. Here’s Why.

The Democratic Party has become something both JFK and RFK would deplore—the party of war.
By Adam Walinsky
September 21, 2016

I was a Democrat all my life. I came to Washington to serve President John Kennedy and Attorney General Robert Kennedy. When the president was murdered and his brother struck off on his own, I joined his Senate campaign and staff as his legislative assistant and speechwriter, until his presidential campaign ended with his own assassination. I ran on a (losing) Democratic ticket in the New York state elections of 1970. When I was working to enact my own program of police reform in the 1980s and 1990s, then-Governor Bill Clinton was chairman of my National Committee for the Police Corps.

This year, I will vote to elect Donald Trump as president of the United States. [snip]

In fact, in all the years of the so-called War on Terror, only one potential American president has had the intelligence, the vision, the sheer sanity to see that America cannot fight the entire world at once; who sees that America’s natural and necessary allies in this fight must include the advanced and civilized nations that are most exposed and experienced in their own terror wars, and have the requisite military power and willingness to use it. Only one American candidate has pointed out how senseless it is to seek confrontation with Russia and China, at the same time that we are trying to suppress the very jihadist movements that they also are attacking.

That candidate is Donald Trump. Throughout this campaign, he has said that as president, he would quickly sit down with President Putin and seek relaxation of tensions between our nations, and possible collaboration in the fight against terrorists. On this ground alone, he marks himself as greatly superior to all his competitors, earlier in the primaries and now in the general election. [snip]

Moreover Trump marks himself as a man of singular political courage, willing to defy the hysteria of the Washington war hawks, the establishment and the mainstream media who daily describe him as virtually anti-American for daring to voice ideas and opinions at variance with their one-note devotion to war. [snip]

Truly, America first, last and always; for ourselves and for our posterity. These are the reasons why I will vote for Donald Trump for president.

It’s a blistering denunciation of the political establishment and a powerful call to arms for Donald J. Trump from Adam Walinsky.

Adam Walinsky is not alone. The TrumpOcrats are building up a wave of insurrection against the political establishment. In electoral vote rich Ohio, CBS News reports, the insurrectionist forces are in control of large swaths of territory for Trump:

STRUTHERS, OHIO — On a recent Saturday, standing in her driveway, Halle Minchin Skook could not fathom why her neighbor was pissing on Youngstown’s Democratic tradition and voting for Donald Trump this election cycle. [snip]

Standing in the driveway outside her hunter green wood paneled childhood home where she still lived, Skook was scornful of the following that Trump has developed in Struthers, a traditionally Democratic stronghold in the heart of working class Mahoning County, along the eastern flank of Ohio. [snip]

But here on Como Street in Struthers, where CBS News spent a recent weekend knocking on every door on the block, Skook was in the minority. All around her, the community was ditching their Democratic roots and flocking to Trump.

Paul Sracic, who has lived in the area for years and is chair of the department of politics and international relations at Youngstown University, described Trump’s “blue-collar billionaire” identity as the perfect cocktail to attract onetime Democrats here.

They know he’s not really a Republican, and that Mitt Romney hates him, so that helps,” Psaric said of the voters in his community. “So instead it’s like, ‘I’m not becoming a country club Republican, I’m a part of Trump’s party.’” [snip]

The story of these defections goes back to March when over 6,171 registered Democrats voted in the GOP primary that was a showdown between Trump and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Even the Democratic mayor of Struthers was caught with a Trump For President sign in his front yard.

But the Democrats here have not come back home. Instead, many of them are still looking to Trump.

I’ve been a lifelong union guy, a working guy,” said Jeff Kulow, a 25-year member of the Teamsters who recently retired. “Can you imagine people like me going to Trump or going Republican?

Kulow said President Obama, a politician “against everything I believe in,” has been the tipping point. He blamed a $650 increase in his health care premiums directly on the Affordable Care Act​.

“They just don’t get it anymore with us,” Kulow said of the Democratic Party. “Maybe in an upscale area or downscale, maybe they’ll resonate. But around here — all working class and middle class, everyone has left the Democratic party. I can’t see myself ever going back.”

The “basket of deplorables” contempt felt by the Democratic Party against what used to be their base voters is not a figment of imagination. Leftist Robert Kuttner of the Leftist American Prospect is forced to admit that we have been right and the Dimocratic Party has turned against the white working class and the white working class has turned against the Dimocratic Party:

Hard to Believe, but Trump Could Win

Democrats’ longstanding failure to address inequality and insecurity among the white working class helped set the stage for 2016. [snip]

One factor is that political elites have underestimated the deep disaffection of middle- and working-class, downwardly mobile white people. Working-class whites may be well off compared to most blacks, Latinos, and immigrants, but they don’t see it that way, and not without reason.

For decades, two trends have been converging: increasing economic insecurity and falling earnings among white men, and the belated, entirely legitimate claims of out-groups.

The Democratic Party has embraced those demands—of women, blacks, gays, lesbians and transgender people, immigrants, and refugees. That is to the Democrats’ great credit.

This election would be a very different story if they also championed working-class people against economic elites, but they have done that more hesitantly. On the contrary, too much of the white working class, Democrats seem to be in the pockets of bankers as much as Republicans are.

The political class of inbred idiots must be overthrown and every day the slicing machine screeches can be heard as it grinds to razor sharpness. Big Pink hater Nate Silver is now forced to admit that instead of impossible, Donald J. Trump might easily become the next President of the United States:

Nate Silver: Trump surges from 3% to 48% chance of winning

The latest vote projection from elections guru Nate Silver has Republican Donald Trump just six electoral votes short of winning and one point away from equaling Hillary Clinton’s popular vote.

The newest Five Thirty Eight survey Trump at 264 and Clinton at 272, two more than needed. It’s the closest in recent weeks.

Nate Silver is respected by idiots in the ruling political class. We don’t respect his analysis. His attacks on this website are not the cause of our scorn. To our thinking smart political analysis predicts from far away what will happen. We knew back in August of 2015 Donald J. Trump would be the Republican nominee at a time Silver thought Trump’s chances of winning were in the low single digits. What use is Silver now, a few weeks before the election, confirming what is obvious?

Likewise, Trump hater Larry Sabato is quickly revisiting his dumb predictions of a Trump trounce into a possible Trump triumph, bitchy little anti-Trump swipes and snipes included:

The Trump Surge

And then, everything changed.

Well, not everything, but enough to generate the first major revision in our electoral map, and all of it is in Donald Trump’s direction for now. [snip]

One more thing before we get to the new map: It’s reasonable to ask why we are making substantial changes to our ratings in a special Monday issue just four days after an update where we made only minor alterations.

In the midst of writing that earlier update, we were stunned by the flood of bad numbers for Clinton, which compounded erosion that had been taking place over the course of the previous few weeks. Some of this was natural — Clinton’s post-convention lead was probably artificially high — but late last week her numbers started to curdle, both before and after our regular Crystal Ball release on Thursday. Credible pollsters like CNN/ORC, Bloomberg/Selzer, CBS News/New York Times and others produced polls showing Trump up three to five points in the typically critical state of Ohio, up in Florida, up in Iowa, and virtually tied nationally. [snip]

Simultaneously, and related, the Democratic position in the fierce battle to control the U.S. Senate has deteriorated. Naturally, in an age with relatively little ticket-splitting, when Trump moves up, so do GOP chances to hold the upper chamber. Democrats had counted on a big Clinton victory to lift them to at least 50 Senate seats, if not an outright majority.

That isn’t currently happening, as we explain below.

The latest bombings only help Trump. The exposed Weiner with rape fantasies of a 15 year old girl only helps Trump against the corrupt ruling political class.

Donald J. Trump can only hope that the Bush clan of blue-bloods unites on the campaign trail with the Kennedys to stump for the Clintons. The “deplorables” will be ready with the scythes.

The political class is ripe for the leveling harvest of the guillotine.

  1. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/09/21/new-low-disgraced-dem-anthony-weiner-sorry-after-texts-to-15-year-old-revealed.html

    Disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner told FoxNews.com Wednesday he knows he has a problem after his never-ending sexting scandal reached a new low with revelations he sent X-rated messages to a 15-year-old girl.

    Weiner’s alleged sexting with the then-high school sophomore, who was not identified, began in January and lasted several months. [snip]

    Weiner said, however, that he had “likely been the subject of a hoax.”

    “I have no one to blame but me for putting myself in this position,” he said. “I am sorry.”

    But screenshots provided by the girl clearly show Weiner’s Twitter handle responding to direct messages. At one point she notes she goes to high school and Weiner asks “Where do you go to school?” Messages on the Kik app – where Weiner allegedly used the alias “T Dog” – and on Facebook show Weiner’s face and often picture the former congressman shirtless.

    Weiner could potentially face legal trouble due to the interactions.

    New York law makes it a crime to persuade someone younger than 17 to create sexual or nude images. It’s also criminal to disseminate indecent material to a minor. If the unidentified girl is from out of state, the lewd messages could become a federal issue.

    She’s underage, so she’s under the age of consent,” said Fox News legal analyst Lis Wiehl, who added both the pictures and texts sent by Weiner could potentially prove criminal.

    “Both are sexually promiscuous,” she said. “He’s sending them for sexual satisfaction. There’s really no other way to take the texts other than for his sexual gratification. It’s certainly encouraging indecency of a minor over the Internet.” [snip]

    In one picture allegedly sent to the 15-year-old girl by Weiner, he’s shown sitting outside with his shirt pulled up and his 4-year-old son sleeping on his stomach. The picture was eerily similar to a sext published by The New York Post in August showing the boy lying in bed with a scantily-clad Weiner.

    After the August picture came out, the Administration for Children’s Services launched a probe of Weiner, The Post reported.

    Weiner’s most-recent alleged sexting partner described some of their conversations when the chats took place on Skype.

    He would tell me that he was very lonely and that it had been a year since he and his wife had sex, and that she really didn’t pay him any attention,” the girl told The Daily Mail. “We would talk, just chatting for about 30 minutes and it would lead to more sexual things…asking me to undress…he’d comment on my body. He asked me about masturbation, and that kind of thing.”

    Weiner has been the subject of numerous sex scandals since it emerged in May 2011 that he sent explicit photos of himself to a woman on Twitter. He resigned from Congress that June. In 2013, Weiner entered the New York City mayoral race. But his candidacy ended when his sexts with a 22-year-old woman were discovered. Weiner used the alias “Carlos Danger” in those messages. Abedin announced the couple’s separation in August when the New York Post published a sext showing Weiner lying in his bed with his son.

  2. It’s over fot Trump. The Bush endorsement means he loses the Dana Perino vote. No candidate has ever won the presidency without winning her vote. Oh no, wait that’s Ohio.

  3. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3800131/Egyptian-president-says-s-no-doubt-Trump-make-strong-leader-cuts-slack-year-s-Muslim-ban-idea-meeting-presidential-candidates.html#ixzz4KuXCB06t

    Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is cutting Donald Trump some slack over a proposal he made last year to ban foreign Muslims from entering the United States.

    ‘I don’t want to be unfair to anyone here. During election campaigns there is a perception based on a certain vision and a point of view,’ he told Erin Burnett, per a transcript provided by CNN.

    He said, ‘Then that vision or point of view gets corrected and develops as a result of experience, reports and advice from experts.’

    Sisi, who met with both Hillary Clinton and Trump Monday in New York, said he has ‘no doubt’ Trump would be a strong leader if elected.

    He wasn’t as laudatory of Clinton.

    ‘Political parties in the United States would not allow candidates to reach that level unless they are qualified to lead a country the size of the United States of America,’ he told Burnett through a translator after she asked if Clinton would make a ‘good president.’

    At a Democratic primary debate earlier this year, Clinton derided Sisi as she argued that she was against the Arab Spring movement in Egypt that destabalized the country’s government.

    ‘We saw what happened in Egypt. I cautioned about a quick overthrow of Mubarak, and we now are back with basically an army dictatorship,’ she stated.

    Sisi told Burnett, ‘I believe that that statement was not made after our most recent meeting between myself and Mrs. Clinton.

    ‘But also in Egypt there will not be a chance for any dictatorship because in Egypt there is a constitution, there is law, and there the will of the people which will refuse to allow any leader to stay in his position for any period longer than his term which is four years.’

    The Egyptian politician took power in 2013 in response to protests against elected leader Mohamed Morsi, head of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Morsi was elected after an uprising pushed out Hosni Mubarak, a longtime ally of the U.S. government. [snip]

    In a readout provided to the press, the Trump campaign wrote that the businessman ‘expressed to President Sisi his strong support for Egypt’s war on terrorism, and how under a Trump Administration, the United States of America will be a loyal friend, not simply an ally, that Egypt can count on in the days and years ahead.’

    Trump took the meeting along with retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn and Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, both of whom have advised him on the nexus between immigration and national security.

    Al-Sisi is the anti-Obama. Hillary should never have attacked Al-Sisi and supported Obama. Trump is correct about the need for a United States-Egypt alliance with Al-Sisi as a strong partner.

  4. Keep spending! Earned media beats paid media but that’s a truism Hillary2016 is too dumb to understand:

    http://bigstory.ap.org/article/e80b356a03204fff8b260618cb458017/clinton-campaign-raced-through-50-million-last-month

    Clinton campaign raced through $50 million last month

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton spent $645,000 more a day than her opponent Donald Trump last month, but even with her $50 million campaign outlay, she has not been able to pull away from him in the race for the White House.

    Clinton’s campaign had its most expensive month to date in August, eclipsing its previous monthly high by more than $12 million. And combined, Clinton and the national Democratic Party paid out $78 million in August, while Trump and the Republican National Committee spent about $47 million.

    While both candidates are raising huge sums from donors, their lopsided spending lays bare the difference in the two major party presidential campaigns. Clinton is running a conventional operation featuring multimillion-dollar ad buys and expansive voter outreach. Trump has kept spending down by enjoying seemingly limitless free media coverage and outsourcing the guts of his voter contact duties to the Republican Party.

    The spending disparity has also become a favored Trump boast.

    “Our expenditures on advertising, our expenditures on people, our expenditures on everything are a tiny fraction. And yet we’re minimum tied,” Trump said Tuesday at a rally in Kenansville, North Carolina. “If you can spend less and be winning, that’s a positive thing, right?”

    Earned media beats paid media.

  5. Just in, new polls:

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/09/21/fox-news-poll-trump-tops-clinton-in-battlegrounds-nevada-n-carolina-ohio.html

    Fox News Poll: Trump tops Clinton in battlegrounds Nevada, N. Carolina, Ohio

    Donald Trump narrowly leads Hillary Clinton in the battleground states of Nevada, North Carolina, and Ohio.

    That’s according to Fox News statewide likely voter polls conducted Sunday through Tuesday evenings.

    Trump is helped by strong support from working-class white voters, while Clinton is hurt by a lackluster performance among younger voters and women.

  6. They are so stupid that they think we would vote for hillary to see Mark Ruffalo’s “dick”…and who is a immoral, ignorant, narrissitc, entitled group?

    Children can actually see that horrible ad…

    And Don Cheadle. ..so disappointed…

    I generally refuse to pay to see a movie or watch TV with political activist idiots in them…which has greatly freed up my free time…

  7. He’s leading in Florida too, isn’t he?

    This means at the first debate, the first part will all be about racist Trump, as will the middle, and the end.

    As I said earlier, wasn’t to happy with his statement regarding the female police officer who shot the man and killed him. Really need for all the facts to come out..now that would be Presidential.

  8. Admin…I was out at an event today and read that Adam Walinsky article on my phone and thought I cannot wait to get home to post that article here…and here you are in your full intuitive glory with it already out there for all of us to read…

    it does feel like the momentum is with trump and us…

    …cautiously so hopeful…

  9. DT’s FEC report posted for the month of August
    http://docquery.fec.gov/pres/2016/M9/C00580100.html

    There are a high percentage of unitemized contributions. That is what they refer to as “small donors” under the $200 limit, but BO used this to channel funny money through his campaign and had around $250 million in each of his campaigns. Maybe $50 million was legitimate.

    Trump is showing $48 million in unitemized donations for the campaign total. It probably is a lot of people donating $50 or so as they can. The trick is to keep up with the cumes for each donor and then report them when they get over $200.

    Trump is also showing $48 million in loans that he has guaranteed. They spent $119 million so far, $30 million in August.

  11. @Tony Stark Didn’t he wake up in his neighbor’s bed because he was too drunk or high on something? Who would take anything he would say seriously? It took a prison stint and a lot of expensive rehab to get him to a coherent state.

    Well now . . . the guru has spoken

    There is a saying in golf that 98% of the putts that stop short of the hole do not go in.

    By that same logic, when Trump wins the general election, Silver will say Trumps’s chances of winning have surged to 92%.

    And big media–also the progeny of too much breeding, will fall on its collective knees and sing in unison to Slippery Silver:

    How Great Thou Art.

    ——
    Question: why can’t you just accept the fact that these are famous people no one has ever heard of, and simply defer to their judgment. Surely that is not asking too much. It puts the low information voter in a position where he says to himself I feel guilty that I do not know who they are either, but because they are famous, they must be smart, ergo if I vote the way they tell me to people will think I am smart as well, until someone asks me who that famous person was, then I can tell them if you do not know that is your problem.

  14. Desperate Hillary?

    “But Clinton noted some of Trump’s anti-union positions and accused the real estate magnate of building his wealth by “stiffing small businesses and contractors.””

    “If you do know somebody who might be voting for Trump, stage an intervention,” Clinton pleaded with her remote audience. “Try to talk some sense into them. Lay out the facts. The facts are on our side, about what I’ve done versus what he’s done. Remember, friends don’t let friends vote for Trump.”

    5. Does a masters degree or higher mean they will vote for a corrupt and deceitful candidate?

    6. Are they so deranged that they are opposed to making America great again.

    7. If this is a serious threat, then Donald will be making a trip to Europe.

    8. My sense is this is a diversionary tactic by Soros to divert attention from cheating on the voting machines/

    9. How do you go about polling this crowd?

  17. from last thread:

    When asked by the interviewer, “Why does Trump compliment Putin?” She (Mary Matalin) fumbled around for an answer they could understand.

    Perhaps she should have sought to answer the question, “Why does Trump complement Putin?”. Then she might have gotten a clue about the current zeitgeist in the country and the western world….

  18. “Perhaps she should have sought to answer the question, “Why does Trump complement Putin?”. Then she might have gotten a clue about the current zeitgeist in the country and the western world….”

    If you really want to know, ask HIM.

  19. Mary Matalin had spoken of going Indy if she had to. However, she registered as a Libertarian in May 2016..

    I double checked..

    …..

    Longtime Republican strategist Mary Matalin says she changed her affiliation to the Libertarian Party on Thursday, but insisted that does not mean she will not vote for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton.

    “I’m a never Hillary and I’m a provisional Trump,” said Matalin, who is married to Democratic strategist and Clinton surrogate James Carville, in an interview with Bloomberg Politics’ “With All Due Respect.”

    Texas threatens to ‘exit’ the federal refugee program over terrorist concerns

    Texas, which has taken in more refugees than any state in the nation over the past year, is threatening to leave the federal refugee program if the Obama administration does not meet its security demands.

    The dispute comes as the Obama administration has announced a new goal of resettling 110,000 refugees in the United States in the coming year, including an unspecified increase in the number from Syria.

    In a letter Wednesday to Robert Carey, director of the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission said that unless Washington “unconditionally” approves the state’s new plan controlling placements in Texas by September 30, the agency will “exit” the program.

    Without an agreement, Texas would join Kansas and New Jersey in withdrawing state participation in the refugee program over the federal government’s vetting procedures to screen out potential terrorists.

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said the letter was sent in response to the Office of Refugee Resettlement’s “unwillingness” to approve the state’s new refugee plan, which would require national security officials to ensure that refugees do not pose a security threat to Texas.

  20. When asked by the interviewer, “Why does Trump compliment Putin?” She (Mary Matalin) fumbled around for an answer they could understand.
    ——–
    Oh that is a real tough one . . .

    How about this:

    Because he sees Putin as an ally in the war against ISIS which Obama allowed to grow to the point that it controls major oil reserves, and has grown far beyond that ignorant fuck stick Obama ever dreamed of when he sneered and called them a junior varsity squad (never pausing to consider what that made him) to where today they threaten the United States. The other reason is unlike the neocon, and foggy bottom he is not looking to provoke world war III. Finally, as David Stockman pointed out, Russia is a much diminished economic power with a GDP of 1.4 trillion compared to the Tri-State area–NY, NJ, Connecticut which has a 1.6 trillion.

  21. Monica Crowley’s recommendations to Trump in re. the debate:

    For a full TKO, Mr. Trump should do four main things.

    First, he should emphasize his pragmatic vision for turning America around: moving to pro-growth economics, restoring law and order, rebuilding the military and a strong national defense, reigniting America’s influence and prestige internationally, and defeating the corrupt, rigged system (as embodied by Mrs. Clinton).

    As a successful presidential candidate, he must offer voters a positive, compelling reason to vote for him, rather than just against his opponent. That’s why it’s critical for Mr. Trump to focus on his restorative agenda for the country.

    Second, as a compliment to his optimistic vision, he must smash Mrs. Clinton, both as a failed “leader” pushing failed policies and a destructive leftist ideology and as a deeply corrupt individual who cannot — must not — be trusted with the presidency.

    She will try to swarm him with policy details to try to demonstrate that he’s unprepared for the highest office in the land. She’ll try to sit above the fray, winking that she’s “been there, done that.” Well, yes. But the question is not whether she was in the game. It’s how she played it — and what results she produced. For her, the result was evermore power and a net worth of over $125 million. For the country, the result is that we are less wealthy, less prosperous, less safe, less secure, less powerful.

    Mr. Trump doesn’t have to show an encyclopedic knowledge of every policy nuance. He simply has to point to the wreckage of the Obama economy and foreign policy and say: “We tried it your way.”

    Third, he should “gaslight” her (hat tip to Alfred Hitchcock) by remaining totally cool and unflappable while calmly pushing on her vulnerabilities, from her disgraceful lack of integrity to her hypocrisy concerning women to standing by silently if she’s seized by one of her interminable coughing attacks.

    This must be done with the greatest care, taking the Reagan approach of regarding her more in sorrow than in anger: “There you go again.” And he should call her Mrs. Clinton in order to link her to the deeply flawed boy who brought her to the dance.

    For all of the talk about Mr. Trump’s alleged “thin skin,” she is extraordinarily prickly. She has never faced a tough election fight or been questioned aggressively or criticized to her face. If Mr. Trump can get under her thin skin, he could provoke a caustic response that will reveal the cosseted elitist behind the frozen smile. Witness candidate Barack Obama’s calmly delivered 2008 crack, “You’re likeable enough, Hillary.” The steam came out of her ears for days.

    Finally, Mr. Trump must be a happy warrior. Most voters want to believe that he’s the guy not just to fix the country — but to restore their optimism with it. They want to know that he will fight the war for America’s future not as a burden but as a joyful privilege. If he can exuberantly convey that America can be saved — and that she is worth saving — he will not just win the debate but perhaps the election.

  22. Admin:

    The political class is ripe for the leveling harvest of the guillotine.

    ———–
    Yes, indeed.

    They have a rendezvous with The Devil’s Tooth alright.

    Long overdue.

  23. The dims must be freaking out watching what is going on in Charlotte tonight

    It is awful and sad…all on O & attorney general Loretta’s watch…and Hillary instigating

    OMG…terrible. not enough that they left the Middle East in flames…now it is all starting here

    This country needs Donald to take over the reigns…we cannot continue on like this…

  24. Excellent essay, admin.

    I especially thought this was well said:

    To our thinking smart political analysis predicts from far away what will happen. We knew back in August of 2015 Donald J. Trump would be the Republican nominee at a time Silver thought Trump’s chances of winning were in the low single digits. What use is Silver now, a few weeks before the election, confirming what is obvious?

  25. wbboei – I was making a play on words, “compliment” vs “complement”, suggesting that instead of trying to answer why does Trump say nice things about Putin, try to answer why do Trump’s positions enhance Putin and vice versa – ie, joining together in the growing fight against globalism, etc…. 🙂

  26. gonzo, I agree with you about Trump and his quick pronouncement.

    We know that Trump has been criticized for his lack of inhibition in saying what he thinks, and he seems to have been trying to rein that in.

    But I think we’re seeing in real time how even when he can understand a lot of the context (the dangerous jobs police have, their importance to maintaining a civilized society, etc), he still has some impulse control issues and shoots his mouth off.

    In other words, he’s learned in planned speeches to limit his off hand comments, but when suddenly put on the spot, that tendency to say the first thing that occurs to him jumped right out. I hope he continues to grow in that, because even most superficial politicians understand to wait for evidence if even just for their own political self-interest. But as president, he could cause problems with this impulsiveness, almost give cover for the ridiculous behaviors of these thugs in the street.

  27. So, the Breitbart article about Soros working to ensure that 8 million expats vote against Trump – the article says if they all did that, the number would represent the 13th largest state. But … how does that work with the electoral college? Are their votes counted in the state they last lived in? Because they are NOT a state, so they couldn’t be counted together. So the 8 million number (or whatever actually emerged) would be diluted at least somewhat in states that were going for Trump….? I never wondered about that before, how they – or the military – overseas votes are counted….

  28. Here’s a nice fundraiser Donald has for $3. Via email. 10 years ago I might have been able to consider it! It will be so nice for someone.

    P.S. Imagine telling your family and friends (and your very lucky guest) that you’re going to spend the day with me traveling with me on the Trump campaign plane! This is a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Make sure to secure your entry today – time is running short!

  29. lorac:
    Good question about the ex-pat voters. Overseas military votes count for the state of their home address. I have to think ex-pats would be for the state of their last US address as well.

  30. How do we pin a “good” liberal (an oxymoron perhaps? Or just a moron??) to the mat in 90 seconds?

    First, when they launch into their predicable diatribe about Trump, hit them in the smackeroo with this one: Okay fine, go ahead and vote for a liar, thief and murderer, since that is obviously your predilection. Just make sure to wash your hands when you leave the room. And when everything turns to shit, play the fool and blame everyone but yourself.

    Second, break the old paradigm, where the good liberal plays the moral superiority card for supporting transfer payments to an educational system that is failing the underclass, and accusing Republicans of not caring about the poor because they oppose such counterproductive gestures. Whereupon Republicans attack the argument, with a tedious recitation of contrary facts, which is technically correct but misses the essential point. In the alternative, they should attack the democrat personally. Like this:

    Hit them in the smackeroo with this one: Why do liberals hate the poor? Why?? Studies show that charter school systems work, and can lift them out of poverty. Yet, liberals vehemently oppose them. Is that because they care more about the money they receive from the teachers union than they care about the poor? So again I ask why does the party of Jim Crow hate the poor so much? Why?? (Note: this argument is effective because it strips them of all pretense of moral superiority and shows them to be the low life scum they really are, whether they know it or not.)

    The Stefan Molyneux–Bill Whittle video below is VERY instructive on these points. I commend it to your attention, highly. By the way, this is what Admin does to perfection. It is the art that conceals the art. This tactical approach, plus a deep understanding of the political process from inside a campaign, rather than from the outside which is where big media stands, plus a willingness to speak the truth regardless of hurting peoples feelings, is what makes this blog the best source of information on the internet.

    —–
    Obviously, they will be influenced to some degree by the reports they receive from friends and family at home. In some cases, that influence may be substantial, because they will tell themselves that their domestic relations are in the midst of it. But ultimately, the question has to be, if you are an ex patriate, when I come home, what kind of a country do I want to come home to. And why after 8 years of a black president, are we entering a civil war. And if it to be a civil war, who will protect us. Trump or the Secretary of State who fumbled the ball at Benghazi. This assumes of course that these people do not have masters degrees or higher, because as the Soros operative in the Breitbart article assured us, such people have lost whatever ability they may have had to think, and are shoe in votes for Hillary and any other democrat, and terrified of Trump.

    more bad news.

    ———-
    Tom Wolf wrote a short story on these kind of people.

    Its called mau mauing the flack catchers.

    It does little to convey empathy for their position.

    If it is shown that the black officer followed all the proper procedures, what then.

    What will a protester like this say?

    You know as well as I do what they will say:

    The investigation was racist.

    So why give these people a microphone?

  33. I don’t know whether it is genetic or cultural, but human nature recoils against angry men, but even more so angry women. This is why women, typically, resort to more indirect means of warfare. And Liddel Hart talked about that very point, not with regard to women, but with regard to strategies that win wars. That Hillary video you posted throws that sort of caution to the wind. This is a direct frontal assault, that never seemed to arise in Bill’s indiscretions, except the one time it became public and earned for his a black eye. What we see now is the same angry Hillary that we saw in the Benghazi hearing. When you see that whether she will be hurling bibles, white house silver ware or Churchill busts. If she wants to adopt this tone when speaking with Obama and Jarret, I am fine with it. But it should not be used to address decent people. Not if she wants their support.

  34. Charlotte “protester”, definitely your typical black lives matter only and don’t confuse me with facts, yelling, screaming, hostile. .yeah…

    And did you see the black man step in in an threatening way, he doesn’t know what was going on but looking for a fight.

    And why is p ur media not calling on obama to cool things down? He is so irrelevant..
    And. O curfew? Alowwd to break, steal, harm…what a message, what a message

  35. Mayor of Charlotte is a big liberal.

    She’s not doing anyone favors. She should say, if your on the street tonight, your arrested, if you throw a rock , your arrested, go home. This will be investigated and if there is wrong doing with the Police, it will be prosecuted, but we will let the facts come forth…Go home!

    Mayor of Charlotte is a big liberal.
    ——
    Compare how Rudi handled a much larger problem than this.

    Most of these mayors in blue state cities are democrats.

    Including Mayor Murray of Seattle.

    And his predecessor deemed McSchwin

    Who was jeered as McSchwin

    Because he decided it would be a good idea

    To give developers the key to the city

    And relieve them of the obligation to provide parking

    So this remittance man from some other domicile

    Tells us we just need to convert to bicycles

    Which works great in the winter when it rains incessantly

    They are the first to fold, and the last to defend the police.

    Their response to a riot is simple and straightforward:

    Cut and run, blame the police, cart out the bodies, excuse the rioters

    And call for a ceremonial day of healing (otherwise known as heeling)

    Until the leftists decide its time to do it all over again.

  37. Rudi’s has blasted the Major and rioters.

    He would have made such a good President.
    I was sorry his campaign couldn’t get off the ground.He was my first choice then…actually I would have loved to see him VP, but that wasn’t going to happen.
    Now would I have liked to marry him? Lol, no.

    I remember all the drama with his divorces…

    But Rudi was a leader, as always.

    The problem with subversives having a list of Americans living abroad is not so much who they can register, but who does not register. People need to check and see if they are registered to vote, even if they haven’t.

    Other than that, I cannot imagine anyone who has seen what the angry mussies have done for Europe, would ever vote for Hillary.

  39. As America awaits to see if Charlotte will burn for the third consecutive night, Paul Joseph Watson points out something troubling: thugs burned down a city because a black cop shot someone, yet meanwhile the mainstream media spun it, or at least tried, as as “peaceful protest.” There is just one problem: violent criminals looting, attacking bystanders, attacking journalists, setting fires, smashing up cars, smashing up businesses and shooting at each other is not the a “peaceful protest.”

    And with all of these activities having been documented in the clip below, it is worth pointing out that:

    Stealing and looting cash registers from local businesses is not a legitimate form of protest
    A “protester” shooting another “protester” is not a legitimate form of protest.
    Physically attacking reporters is not a legitimate form of protest.
    Throwing rocks off bridges at passing vehicles full of families is not a legitimate form of protest
    Beating up innocent people in parking lots because they’re white is not a legitimate form of protest.
    Smashing up apartment windows where black people live to “protest” in favor of ‘Black Lives Matter’ is not a legitimate form of protest.
    Trashing your own neighborhood is not a legitimate form of protest.
    Looting the Charlotte Hornets team store so you can steal basketball merchandise is not a legitimate form of protest
    Attempting to hijack cars and terrify their innocent occupants is not a legitimate form of protest.

    What was unfolding in Charlotte – and may still be – is not a protest. It’s a violent, unjustified riot by criminals and thugs. The question is why is the media giving it legitimacy by still referring to it as a protest?

  40. Lu4PUMA, the Farrakhan speech is a foretaste of the post Obama era. Farrakhan is getting ready to battle Obama for supremacy of the black community the moment Obama gets out. Obama wants control of the black community to enforce his control of the party no matter what happens. Farrakhan understands Obama wants to be top dog and Louis won’t let that happen without a fight.

  41. imo one of a Hillary’s biggest disadvantages and a BIG problem for her is…her delivery…it is bad…really bad

    …and next to Donald there is no contest

    Hillary usually sounds very angry and like she is yelling and/ or scolding…condescending…not having any fun…very little joy or inspiration

    Donald is having fun and explaining his plans in simple english while having a conversation with the American people…people connect and ironic as it is…people identify with him…people feel like they “know” him

  42. Hi, I have been lurking here since ’07. Just wanted to say I was in PA tonight. Trump had a traffic jam from I95 through Aston PA. This was about 10 miles. I drove by the event and they were treating everyone respectfully even the hillary protesters. It was nice to see. The media portrayal is complete bunk.
    PS thanks for being a source of reason in an unreasonable time.

  43. @S This woman is a teacher’s nightmare at parent teacher conference time. They latch onto one thing and go bonkers.

  44. a suggestion for police training…I agree that they have a very dangerous job and often have to act in a moments notice…

    however as things stand it seems inevitable that they will need better or updated and moderninzed training, particularly as it relates to using “lethal force”

    I questioned many months ago…why do they have to always KILL the person? it is too much…judge and jury in an instant and a person’s life is gone…

    I would like to suggest that they are trained in these intense circumstances, especially when it is one person and he/she is confronted by multiple police officers and no one is sure about what is going on…to shoot for THEIR HANDS…if the police can incapacitate their hands then the person cannot threaten them or shoot at them…

    the result being…the person will still be alive…

    the police have to be cognizant that we are living in a climate where immediately killing the person in these circumstances is not going to be ok…

    we recently had a case in Florida of an AA man coming home from work and his car broke down on the freeway and he was trying to repair his car and seek help and the police just shot him dead…that is wrong…that man’s life was snuffed out and his civil rights were taken from him…

    on the other hand, the police in South Florida have their hands full every single day…one too many of the youth are completely out of control…and violently out of control…robberies, killings, etc go on every day, particularly starting in Miami Lakes and heading south to Miami…

    incapcitate them…and arrest them…retrain on how and when to use “lethal force”

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

    beyond that…this situation will get nowhere until parents, activists and communities open their eyes to the fact that there is an element that is violent and criminal and they have to stop making excuses for them and address the reality…stop ignoring reality…

    this problem has multiple variables….police training, addressing the out of control youth and criminal adults and recognizing some of the things Donald is suggessting for helping these communities…jobs, better schools, safety, etc will help everyone inclusively…

  45. It’s very hard to find Hillary’s schedule now. I did come across a “willHillarywin” site which had a really useful sort option as it allowed for choosing only events at which Hillary would be there. Other than the 3 debates and the general election, she has just one listed appearance and it’s in DC with Julianna Margulies – isn’t that Chelsea’s MIL?
    I’m not sure it’s correct, will not give her campaign site my email to get in AND BE TRACKED. I think admin and others have a better one. I’ll check back.

    But this is my biggest reason for the comment. From Bloomberg, and long and frank.

    20 Sep 2016. Obama Throws Himself Into 2016 Race Hellbent on Clinton Victory
    http://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2016-09-20/obama-throws-himself-into-2016-race-hellbent-on-clinton-victory

  46. Faukahaness scapes the gutter to find the newest rendition of the old lie, which is grist for the lo info voters, namely:

    The only reason they object to Obama’s determined efforts to destroy this country is because these racists cannot stand seeing a black man in the White House.

    This new variation of that theme?

    Well . . . according to Fakahanuss:

    The only reason Trump is attacking Hillary for Benghazi, the emails, the lies and the condescension which is baked into her record is because he hates losing to a girl.

    This is a crude, and insulting example of identity politics.

    A shameful appeal to the weakest of weak minds.

    In a court of law, or in the world of common sense, they are not an affirmative defense to incompetence, corruption, and maniacal efforts to destroy the republic in the name of globalism.

  47. regarding the upcoming debates…

    I think most of us agree Hillary going to try to “bait” Donald and rattle and insult him…and ‘use his own words’ to corner him…

    Donald is a master negotiator…so i hope he realizes the ‘chess game’ he is in…and stays calm…and each time she tries to rile or insult him…he does not get defensive and instead deflects what she is saying very calmly and instead flips it and brings out something about her and her failures, her corrupt activities, her employees pleading the fifth…her untrustworthiness, etc…

    and he uses some of his charm…

    In addition I think it would do Donald good to ‘humanize’ himself in that he frequently interjects how much he ‘cares’ about people…how many people he has put to work and helped educate and care for…how many challenges he has taken on and solutions to problems he has created…show a little humility on what he believes is the honor to “help” people, particularly those most in need…

    don’t overdo with the bragging…instead focus on connecting with the people…

    deliver all his counterpoints calmly, perhaps look to the audience or into the camera with a ‘comforting’ smile…use HUMOR…

    Party Loyalty Can’t Make Me Vote for Clinton

    A lifelong Democrat, I’m backing Trump because he can shake up our politics and revive the economy.

    By
    Andrew Stein
    Updated Sept. 23, 2016 10:47 a.m. ET

    I have been steeped in the Democratic Party all my life. My father, Jerry, was a New York City Democratic chairman and power broker, and I grew up in and around the Democratic Party. When I was a young man, former senators and Democratic presidential and vice-presidential nominees Hubert Humphrey and Estes Kefauver stayed at my apartment and we would proudly discuss the great traditions of the Democratic Party.

    My father was a pallbearer at St. Patrick’s for Bobby Kennedy’s funeral. When I was young, Robert F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy were (and remain) my political heroes. Four years ago, former New York Gov. and liberal lion Mario Cuomo spoke at my father’s funeral. I think his son, current Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is a very effective leader.

    I was elected five times to the New York state Assembly as a Democrat. In 1977, I beat David Dinkins and Robert Wagner Jr. in the election for borough president of Manhattan, and then was elected twice as City Council president.

    With this background it is very hard for me not to support the Democratic nominee for president this year. But I believe my party has become the party of the elites and moneyed class and has deserted its historic mission as the party of the working class and disadvantaged.

    Given my level of discomfort with the current leftist orientation of the Democratic Party, I am now supporting Republican nominee Donald Trump for president. I urge my fellow Democrats to vote for Mr. Trump. I have known him since the early 1970s and have seen his deep concern for people, and how effective he has been while working on behalf of the average citizen.

    Donald Trump is no racist. On the contrary, he offers the best hope for rebuilding our inner cities and creating better education and jobs for those trapped in poverty and lacking hope. When a hurricane devastated Puerto Rico in 1984, I asked Mr. Trump to provide a 727 airliner to bring critical supplies to the island. He did so and without publicity. I asked him to rebuild the Wollman Skating Rink in Central Park because the city couldn’t complete it in 10 years. Mr. Trump did it in under six months and under budget.

    While he has made some controversial and provocative statements, I strongly believe he will bring needed change and vitality to our nation and shake up our political system, which is in a state of crisis. He is for strong pro-growth policies like reducing the marginal and corporate tax rates and eliminating thousands of job-killing and business-stifling regulations, the biggest of which is ObamaCare.

    Mr. Trump is also for rebuilding the military, which has been decimated by Obama’s dangerous cuts and sequestration. He is a strong supporter of Israel and will not abandon our allies in the Mideast and around the world. Unlike Hillary Clinton, he will not allow tens of thousands of immigrants who cannot be vetted properly to come to the U.S.

    Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is the personification of the establishment and status quo. She voted for the war in Iraq and supported the Iran nuclear deal, two of the worst, and most-dangerous, mistakes in American foreign policy during my lifetime.

    Everywhere in the world America’s position is far worse now thanks in large measure to her actions as secretary of state. The whole saga of her private unsecure emails and server and the appearance of massive pay-for-play at the Clinton Foundation are also profoundly troubling.

    Her domestic record is as bad as her international one. When Mrs. Clinton was elected to the Senate, she promised to create 200,000 new jobs in upstate New York. When she left office in January 2009, the region had a net loss of 8,000 jobs. Now she promises to create 10 million new jobs in the nation. Why should we believe that she will do that, based on her failed record in New York state?

    Sometimes a break with your own party is compelled by events. This is not to say it is an easy decision politically or personally. It can be wrenching. In 1973 I was appointed by Gov. Nelson Rockefeller to be chairman of a commission to investigate patient abuse and massive Medicaid fraud in the New York state nursing-home industry—which was extensively covered by the press. The nursing homeowners were protected by the Democratic leadership in the state Assembly. I had to fight those leaders in my own party to get the needed reforms passed.

    As President Kennedy once said to his trusted speechwriter and confidante Arthur Schlesinger Jr., “Sometimes party loyalty asks too much.” This is the case in this election. I believe Donald Trump will make a great president and I ask my fellow Democrats to vote for him. The future of the nation may very well depend on it.

    Mr. Stein, who held elective office in New York between 1969 and 1994, is now a business consultant.

    Correction: An earlier version of this article misstated the first name of Hubert Humphrey.

  49. S,

    If an officer is to pull a gun and shoot, they are taught to kill. Its really that simple. They aren’t suppose to shoot unless imminent threat, shooting for hands would be like bobbing for apples.

  50. I agree with Richard’s analysis. There is no way to rehabilitate the BOT or the political class. Any attempt to do so through rational persuasion is a lifetime exercise in futility. For they revel in their insanity. And if that is true, and there is little doubt in my mind that it is, then it leaves but one alternative. They must be destroyed. Destruction can take many forms. The favored approach is to defund the left, expose their hypocrisy, and hack into their plots, just as you would bug Mafia capos. And then you must hope to god that the comatose public wakes up and smells the coffee. However, when you reach the point where that hypothesis is proven wrong, or that effort itself proves to be in vain, because they are cloistered in fortresses like the Soros charities, the Ford foundation, and the Bilderburgers, more drastic measures will be required. The alternative, which is to sit back and allow their insanity to destroy what is left of the Republic is categorically unacceptable. Wherever possible this must be accomplished through means not inimical to the constitution and the rule of law. But done it must be, in my opinion. I believe many in the military, the police, and the intelligence community share that assessment, unless they are the kind of political bootlickers who surround Obama. It is to be noted that Trump now commands the support of the military, the law enforcement agencies, and the productive class (as opposed to the creative class). That alone should worry the untouchables.

    Normative Behavior
    BY RICHARD FERNANDEZ SEPTEMBER 22, 2016 CHAT 132 COMMENTS

    President Barack Obama pauses during a news conference following the G-20 Summit in Antalya, Turkey, Monday, Nov. 16, 2015. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)
    The devastation of Syria, according to the Guardian, will be Obama’s legacy but it won’t entirely be the story of naive neglect. Some pundits think active incompetence must have played a part too. After all, when the administration conceived of an alliance with Russia as a way the conflict could be shifted to the negotiating table, any reasonable person could have foreseen the possible dangers. Events proved the administration completely miscalculated the way in which Putin and Assad would act. How could they not have foreseen it?

    “The crux of the deal is a US promise to join forces with the Russian air force to share targeting and coordinate an expanded bombing campaign against Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria, which is primarily fighting the government of President Bashar al-Assad.” To say Obama was stabbed in the back would only be to repeat Samantha Power’s belated regret at Putin’s “uniquely cynical and hypocritical stunt”.

    Obama should have seen it coming but didn’t. All too frequently he never does. Noting this, Charles Lister, writing at Foreign Policy, headlines his piece “Obama’s Syria Strategy Is the Definition of Insanity.” He says “none of this should come as a surprise, even as the consequences are potentially devastating.”

    SPONSORED

    The Russian government, much less the Assad regime, has never been a reliable partner for peace in Syria. But even after Russia’s alleged bombing of the aid convoy, U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is still plowing its energies into a deal that aims to work with the Russian government.
    But Lister doesn’t accuse Obama of being actually a crazy person, just of acting like a one. Yet the suggestive evidence goes much further than Syria. Whether at social policy (which yielded riots), health policy (which resulted in Obamacare), or economic policy (which has created unemployment), the administration has shown a willingness to double down on failure. In many and varied contexts, it acts like it’s insane.

    The explanation, as Michael Barone hints at, is the belief these setbacks are an acceptable price to pay for guaranteed re-election. Because liberal politics succeeds at electing candidates by promising impossible things, it promises them. That it fails to deliver is beside the point, because, quoting Dan McLaughlin at National Review, the Democrats believe their “party had unlocked the demographic code to a permanent majority.” Since misleading the electorate was the key to power, they would continue to turn it.

    For all their blunders, “Republicans have lost four of the six presidential elections between 1992-2012” and Obama’s approval rating in the twilight of his term is over 50%. Since there’s no reason to hit the brakes and every incentive to step on the liberal gas, they do.

    Two decades ago, lots of self-described moderates and even conservatives voted in Democratic primaries. Not so these days. The slump in Democratic primary and caucus turnout, from 38 million in 2008 to 31 million in 2016, was due to a sharp decline in turnout by self-described moderates.
    Hillary Clinton’s move from her husband’s 1990s triangulation to her near-total acceptance this year of Bernie Sanders’s left-wing platform was a rational response to changes in the Democratic primary electorate.

    Hillary Clinton doesn’t say what she thinks but what her focus groups say the constituency wants to hear. She just channels the base, consequences be damned. Political catastrophe alone, argues Barone, can shock the system back into sanity. Absent negative feedback that hits politicians where they live, no changes can be expected from the party of Washington. Barone’s hypothesis reassuringly asserts that liberal politics is only optionally crazy and that after a few electoral defeats things could return to normal. Sleep tight: we can leave the asylum any time we want. However, he may have overlooked a crucial possibility. In his classic experiment, Yale psychologist David Rosenhan found it was easy to join the ranks of the insane but almost impossible to leave it on terms the asylum would accept.

    SPONSORED

    Rosenhan’s study was done in two parts. The first part involved the use of healthy associates or “pseudopatients” (three women and five men, including Rosenhan himself) who briefly feigned auditory hallucinations in an attempt to gain admission to 12 different psychiatric hospitals in five different states in various locations in the United States. All were admitted and diagnosed with psychiatric disorders. After admission, the pseudopatients acted normally and told staff that they felt fine and had no longer experienced any additional hallucinations. All were forced to admit to having a mental illness and agree to take antipsychotic drugs as a condition of their release.
    This raises the possibility that dysfunction is rather more permanent than Barone believes. The Rosenhan experiment provides an explanation for the what could be called “the liberal trap,” where there is no way out of an irrational policy regime except on terms that irrational people will accept. In that line of argument, the persistence of Obama’s “insane” foreign and domestic policy is partly the result of being unable to change his policy to anything his constituency can mentally follow. There is no workable escape from Syria, for example, on any self-consistent basis the left would accept and therefore there is no escape.

    Being the head lefty doesn’t mean they’re in there with him. It means he’s in there with THEM.

    And maybe he can’t get out. Having promised them a fantasy universe, he has to pretend to attain it. By that logic “Hillary Clinton’s move from her husband’s 1990s triangulation to her near-total acceptance this year of Bernie Sanders’s left-wing platform” will make her president yet will confine her as much as it did Obama. The reader will have noted there is of course yet another possibility which will not here be discussed. Our political leaders act crazy because they are. But if that were so, how would we know?

    everyone knows why he hates trump right? I mean this has nothing to do with Trumps politics or anything but everything to do with the show Mark tried launching in the early 2000s called The Benefactor. It was set to be a rival to The Apprentice. At the time, Cuban was going around saying how his new show was going to kill Trumps in the ratings. The show bombed and was canceled. Trump rubbed salt in the wounds by sending a letter to him that was pretty amazing but definitely this is why Cuban is so butthurt about Trump.

    Here is the letter Trump wrote to him.

  52. that may well be Gonzo…but I think the idea of when and how often they use “lethal force” is going to be re-evaluated and under great scrutiny…

    too many unnecessary “shoot to kill”…

    and now that they receive microscopic attention it doesn’t make sense to continually ‘shoot to kill”

    a person’s car breaks down and the ‘shoot to kill’…that’s a little ‘trigger happy’ and irresponsible to the average person…

  53. S,
    It wasn’t so simply as the car breaks down and they shoot to kill.
    PCP was found in the car, he had an addiction to same and was acting irrational and not following police instructions and reached in his car. Now both the officer with gun drank and the other with razer fired at same time because of imminent threat. A helicopter and additional police were called for prior to the shooting..I have had to help subdue people strung out on PCP..
    Have you? Their strength is Herculean and they are severely deranged and aggressive.
    I don’t call that ‘trigger happy’.
    We shall see what the toxicology report is…

  54. I have got to believe that many mid level FBI people are furious with their leaders for besmirching their reputation in the eyes of the American people and the world. Simply put, that leadership, like our big media, is all in for the establishment, and will hide any evidence that exposes what they are doing. Normally, I would not paint with such a broad brush, but here the conclusion is inescapable.

  55. I would not dwell on this point if it were not such a paradigmatic example of the attempt by the elites to dismantle our democracy. Here you have the assistant director of the FBI refusing to appear before Congress until he is threatened with a subpoena, and refusing to provide the Congressional Committee with relevant information, or redacting that which is relevant, unable to cite any legal basis for this refusal, and in an open hearing, both sides present, served with a subpoena duces tecum. It is evident from his testimony that the decision to withhold the kind of evidence which government has been required to provide ever since this committee was first established in 1814, and sat on by Abraham Lincoln when he entered Congress and questioned the Administration’s explanation for why it was necessary to declare war on Mexico, was done at the behest of the Director Comey, who decided that Hillary should not be prosecuted. And, did you see any of this on the front page of NYT or WashPo, where a breach of this magnitude should be displayed. No. They covered it up. This is a direct threat to the people of this nation, and they censored it–those great defenders of the First Amendment.

    The cross examination by Jason Chavitz, which is well handled, begins just past the four minute mark. It is highly instructive. It is clear and unambiguous proof that the FBI has been compromised. No other explanation can suffice.

    S,
    ********************************

    gonzotx,

    I am talking about the example I gave of the young AA man that the police shot and killed after his car broke down in FLORIDA…

    it happened here…we also had another situation where they shot the AA caretaker of an autistic boy while he was taking care of him…another quick to judgement “mistake”

    …bottom line…police are human…they also make mistakes…but their mistakes can be deadly when they are wrong…also…they really are some police that are “bad apples” Florida has them…they rape women, one just got arrested for ‘pornography charges’

    look at what happened in Tulsa, she is being charged with manslaughter…

    imo…”shoot to kill” should not be the default or what they are taught to do first, I find that hard to believe…police should evaluate and try to descalate a situation…if they cannot then by all means…but should not be the first thing they do…

  57. cruz getting ready to endorse Donald

    Donald said to be doing a major ad blitz showing him in positive light starting with the first debate

  58. This is a fascinating and funny treasure trove of big media lies about Trump. It begins with an explanation of his media strategy, how he sets them up, how they respond hysterically. The net result? He penetrates the screen of political correctness constructed by the elites to inoculate themselves from rational criticism, gets the truth out, and makes the media look like the fools they are.

    What is destroying their world? Two things:

    i) first, the presence of a candidate who is a master showman and understands how to manipulate the media, because he has been playing this game since 1974 which is before most of them were born, and–

    ii) second, the emergence of the internet and a large number of citizen journalists who have the focus and the tools to dismantle the phony big media narrative almost as fast as they can construct it, which applies to the media whores who were around before 1974, and
    have no comprehension of how vulnerable their Pax Romana is when they attempt to manipulate public opinion with easily debunked lies.

  59. I think the foot stool is a waste of time.

    A needless prop.

    Maybe she can jump into Jeb’s outstreched arms and he can stand on his tippie toes.

    That is the least Jeb can do for his sista.

    And it will remove all doubt who he is supporting.

  60. As if we needed more proof of what a twisted motherfucker Obama is . . .

    The same president who was keen to give Muslim terrorists amnesty from military tribunals even though they were non state actors, and access to US courts, Miranda rights, due process and all the rest,

    Now denies the victims of Muslim terrorists access to US courts to pursue justice against those who sponsored them.

    Saudi Arabia is too big of a donor to Obama, and to Hillary through CGI to do what is right for the American People they purport to represent but really do not.

    Give terrorist standing and deny standing to citizens . . .

    You may find that ironic.

    I on the other hand do not.

    I find it completely consistent with the globalist agenda which seeks to promote their agenda, and silence the rest of us.

    JFK once noted sometimes party loyalty asks too much.

    And, when public officials sell their soul to the devil, they must be viewed and treated accordingly.

    A vote for them is a vote for your own destruction–for those who have eyes to see it.

  61. S,

    I’m sorry but 8 believe 9f an officer feels they have to shoot, it should be to kill. If you have to pull and use your fun, it’s a last alternative. Ask anyone who has to be armed for a living, no one is a mining for and s and feet.
    9ts a different narrative when you can actually deescalate

  62. I got one of those emails from that group that is trying to “register Americans abroad”. This is what they are doing:
    https://secure.avaaz.org/en/globalvote_loc/

    Anyone can sign up. Looks like they are giving out absentee ballots. They are asking for a foreign address and the last known American address. They say you can use your parents old address also.

  63. Lol, phone posted too soon, it’s a different story when you can deescalate a situation and you have the man power to do it. Then maybe taser will work, often with people on drugs they don’t unless used multiple times and frankly, you don’t always have the time to take someone multiple times who is charging you.
    I have been in precarious situations where I work and I do have to use my wits, but I also am aware there are situations that lethal force is absolutely necessary.
    And yes, there are bad police, just as there are bad everything.

  64. Hillary needs to go big on this one.

    No special accommodation for a perceived height disability through a modified podium will do.

    For while that may endear her to Americans with Disability claimants, it will not produce the desired optical illusion.

    I think a 50 foot interactive neon sign on Broadway would be a better solution to the problem at hand.

    Adjacent to the sign that computes the national debt.

    And it should give credit where credit is due to the monster who is financing the campaign to destroy the country

    Meaning that old Nazi Soros—one that Weisenhal missed.

    Why not make it into a movie . . . . like this:

  65. Roger Simon agrees with my take, that thanks to Comey, the FBI has lost all credibility. They have been klutzes in protecting us from terrorists, and enablers of high level corruption. If I were one of their agents, I would make it my business to discuss this abdication of their sacred public trust with other like minded agents, and sign a petition of no confidence in Comey’s corrupt leadership. His i) clearing of Clinton, ii) withholding of material information from congress, and iii) grants of immunity to Mills of all people, plus the techies who set up the system, in exchange for no probative information, proves that this is a white wash. When you add it all up, Comey’s behavior is inimical to the interests of justice, the rule of law, and the future of the republic. At the same time they doom any Hillary presidency ab initio, should the voters be stupid enough to elect a proven liar, thief and murderer/
    —–

    The plot sickens, as they say. Who ordered Combetta to do the bleaching? Doesn’t the public have a right to know? Isn’t it time for the FBI — or some decent agent or agents — to fess up to save the rapidly declining reputation of their organization? That the Bureau has been under attack of late for failure to identify terrorists because of overweening political correctness has only exacerbated the public perception that all is far from well in the J. Edgar Hoover Building.

    This amounts to what the great Italian playwright Ugo Betti referred to as Corruption in the Palace of Justice. Besides being totalitarian in essence, the obfuscatory policies of Lynch and Comey have made certain that Hillary Clinton, should she win the presidency, will never have anything close to the consent of the governed. She will never be reliably cleared and an extremely high percentage of the public will never believe her — and will be correct in doing so.

    We live under a dictatorship of the moral narcissist bourgeoisie. They think they know more than we do and can do anything they wish. Actually, they know little and couldn’t care less. All they want is power and will cling to at it any cost, even the truth and basic morality. And we are their victims.

    Hi,
    8 million Americans abroad could defeat Trump… if they vote! I wanted to make sure you saw this new overseas registration tool that makes voting dead-easy. It literally takes a few minutes 🙂

    September 24, 2016 at 12:50 am

    This is a “new” plan for multiple fraud voting. They also presume that enough ex-pats and dual citizens are progressive loons who have not seen first hand how horrible mass migration and Muslim terror activity is. Maybe they would like to keep a place to run that is still relatively safe when the world goes shit explosion from the Obama/Hillary/Soros failure. The cutoff dates for absentee voting as well as swamped voting registrars who are trying to handle mass in-district voting were not factored in by the Soros paid dumbest elites ever in the history of the world. The voting bureaucracy are kind of busy right now and sending out voter registration, then absentee ballots and then getting them back by November 8 is not a priority if you have people standing in line in your office. It goes into the do in December/January pile. More “spaghetti thrown at the wall” genius planning (who have never worked in the real world) as the preference cascade builds.

  68. I think the most important pivot that Trump should do during the debates is to frame himself as a global populist. He has given voice to our national populous that has been oppressed by the elite class that exploits us in the name of globalism. But they are nothing but a bunch of looters that have become malignant parasites.

    We should not have to accept forms of globalism that do not benefit us, that take away our freedoms, our standards of living, our security and even our humanity.

  69. foxy

    I think teddy saw the quickly fading light of his political career. whether his last ditch attempt at survival by hopping aboard the Trump train saves him, who knows and who cares. the guy is an absolute freak.

  70. foxy – he conveniently saw the light after Priebus said those who don’t honor their pledge won’t be allowed to run for president again lol

    Plus, he’s probably missing getting any attention lol

  71. They also presume that enough ex-pats and dual citizens are progressive loons who have not seen first hand how horrible mass migration and Muslim terror activity is.
    ———-
    An excellent point.

    In 2008, we had direct reports here on this blog from people like Patty4Hill who reported from China that the ex pats were all in for Obama, and my brother and his wife who know little about politics won a trip to Spain and when they came back she announced with a big grin that they spoke to the people over there who were all in for Obama, and came back and voted for them.

    By now, however, they have all seen the elephant. I do not know about my brother and his wife, they are political novices who go with the flow of country clubbers, a vile subset of humanity in my estimation. But for those who think for themselves, the spectacle of the advancing Muslim hordes, hardly the creme more the dregs of those societies, just like the peasant invasion from the south, challenges their magic thinking and forces them to look down the throat of the monster–the one Hillary is determined to bring here at 5 times the current numbers in the service of her megalomaniac globalist donors. To the dullest minds among surely that makes an impression. affects their family in the states, and begs the question what kind of a country do I want to come home to, because it is getting a little hot over here. Furthermore, if they stay in touch with what is occurring in this country, which now resembles the summer of 1967 burn baby burn they may wonder whether stay the course, and stronger united and I am for her are compelling reasons to ignore their lying eyes.

  72. just heard that Donald tweeted that if clinton is going to put Dopey Mark Cuban in the front row he might put Jennifer Flowers right next to him

    checkmate

  73. S

    I had to look up mark Cuban. didn’t know who he is. turns out, he is quite the dick. pretty sad the Hillary campaign is running so scared they have to resort to petty theater in the front row.

  74. 😆😆😆

  75. Alcina,

    Mark Cuban is a showboater and immature…

    Donald is getting into Hillary’s head…

    no matter what…Donald is fascinating to watch in action…

  76. Regarding the cute Mark Cuban front row ploy – the pajama-boys in Brooklyn Heights are about to learn their lesson Trump-style. You play with the lion, prepare to be eaten alive.

  77. S

    Looked up Mark Cuban and found a recent interview. Could only tolerate about two minutes of him. Total windbag bull-shit artist.

  78. The level of corruption never ends… Hillary has refined
    money making schemes to state of the art status involving anything and everything connected to her and her ilk. ILLEGAL? UNETHICAL? UNINDICTABLE? pick one..

    Money Laundering Scheme Exposed: 14 Pro-Clinton Super PACs and Non-Profits Implicated

    Say, for example, you donate $1,062,857 to Media Matters for America. This is how David Brock would have used your charitable donation in 2014:

    Media Matters would receive your $1,062,857 donation
    The Bonner Group would earn a $132,857 commission
    Media Matters would retain $930,000
    Next, Media Matters would give what’s left of your entire donation, $930,000, to the Franklin Education Forum
    The Bonner Group would ‘earn’ a $116,250 commission
    The Franklin Education Forum would retain $813,750
    The Franklin Education Forum would then forward the remaining $813,750 to The Franklin Forum
    The Bonner Group would ‘earn’ a $101,718 commission
    The Franklin Forum would retain $712,031

    In the end, Brock’s solicitor would have pocketed $350,825, almost a third of your initial donation! That’s a far cry from the advertised 12.5% commission.

    As bizarre as that scenario may sound, this is exactly what David Brock did in 2014.

    How can we be sure this is intentional?

    David Brock is the Chairman for each of these organizations! How could he not know what’s going on?

    He’s a hands-on Chairman. According to their tax returns, Brock allocates time, weekly, to his organizations:

    Media Matters: 31.50 hours per week
    Franklin Education Forum: 3 hours per week
    The Franklin Forum: 1 hour per week

    Furthermore, the New York Times reports that David Brock shares a summer rental in the Hamptons with Mary Pat Bonner, the President of the Bonner Group!

    David Brock will have a hard time claiming ignorance on this. These transfers are intentional. He vacations with his solicitor. Case closed.

    Still not convinced?

    David Brock didn’t even bother to give his organizations different phone numbers. They all share the same phone number!

    Details on how this was done info (paper trail etc..)at link:

  79. How To Argue With A Demon Rat, by using their own Alynsky arguments against them:

    Q-1: Why do democrats hate the poor so much? Why?? All these studies show that charter schools are better. But the democrats would rather get money from the teachers unions than see the kids succeed. 7% of the ninth grade children in Detroit are reading at a 9th grand level. Yet we spend 3x more money than any other country in the world. What is the matter with the democrats. Here we have this perfect solution, charter schools, but they block it every time it is proposed. Even though minority parents want charter schools. Why do they hate blacks and minorities so much? The answer is self evident: as long as they can keep them on the plantation, they can preserve their own wealth and power. This is consistent with their history as the party of slavery and later on Jim Crow. Furthermore, they fear that if parents were given a choice they would see how bad the public schools are.

    Q-2: Why do democrats oppose the free market? Why?? Simple: to derive money and power from the special interests who support them–and to hell with the public welfare. Take the example of Uber. The business model does nothing more than connect a person with a car with one who needs a ride. A pure free market exchange. The ride cost $5. But when the democrat sees this, what does he do? He screams about unfair competition, non union status, pollution, safety etc. To cure those imaginary ills, he sets up a Department of Uber safety, and 70,000 bureaucrats in Washington DC. Suddenly the cost of the ride goes up to $20. At that point the ride becomes unaffordable to some, and others wonder what tangible benefit they receive in exchange for the hyper inflated cost. But there is no doubt what the democrat gets from their opposition to the free market: Money and power from regulators and donors.

    Q-3: Why do democrats allow our inner cities to degenerate into killing fields? Why?? These cities have been run by democrats for 80 years. And, crime is out of control. Last year alone, 6000 black men were murdered in those inner cities. A mere 274 of them were at the hands of the police. And in most of those cases, the policeman fired his gun in self defense. Yet, Democrats, ignore 96% of the killings. If they mention them at all, they treat them as a mere statistic. They focus only on the 4% involving the police. And they impute a racial motive to what is typically a life or death situation for those officers. This triggers mob action, and they ride the crest of that wave, as we saw with Messiah Obama. And ultimately they produce what is called The Ferguson Effect, where the police abandon proactive policing because they know from experience that at the first sign of trouble, their Democrat Mayor will throw them to the wolves, and they and their families will be targeted by the media and criminal elements. As a result, law abiding people in the inner city lose their one source of protection against the risk of violent death. But the democrat wins because he can shift the blame, engage in moral preening, and attract wealth and power, confident that their base will never realize they are being played for suckers.

  80. Gennifer Flowers accepted via twitter…the call is up to DT

    Big rally in VA tonight at 6 pm

    Massive rally (10,000) in Florida day after the debates

    full court push…

    also heard Rudy on tv yesterday and he said Donald has a few ‘surprises’ up his sleeve for debate…

    I hope he brings up Haiti…for me, that is one of the biggest disgraces of the Clintons…I am so disappointed in them for their greed and fraud towards Haiti…

    also hopes he bring up why all of hillary’s closest people got immunity and why her IT people all plead the 5th Amendment…and

    why did O lie and tell CBS he heard about her server in the news when he was communicating with her using another name

    …bunch of freaking liars…the whole bunch…and BM wants to endorse them…

    no way…the theft of our country has to be stopped…

    Thx, Gonzo- Friday is news dump day. On Friday’s something onerous about BO or Hillary is usually in the dump, if you can find it- I call it, combing the Catacombs looking for something they’re doing that hasn’t hit mainstream yet.

    Birds of a feather flock together!

    Interesting, foxy- So, Obama has his own private channel gifted to him and courtesy of Google. Where his minions lie in wait for their next assignment, their marching orders.

    Wonder if he communicates, undercover, suggested subversive activities on this private channel?

  84. Here’s Gennifer Flowers’ tweet about accepting Trump’s invitation to the debate. 😆

  85. mmmmm….I don’t know…. it might not throw Hillary off her game, it might instead provide fuel for her fire, remind her how various *they* have always been against her, “I beat them before, and I’ll do it again, I’m going to win this debate!”

  86. Was Obama emailing Hillary:

    But perhaps the most interesting finding emerged from the “Miscellaneous” section in the Huma Abedin interview, in which it was revealed that none other than president Barack Obama had used a pseudonym in his communication with Hillary. In an April 5, 2016 interview with the FBI, Abedin was presented an email exchange between Clinton and Obama, dated June 28, 2012 with the subject “Re: Congratulations”, Clinton’s aide did not recognize the name of the sender.

    “Once informed that the sender’s name is believed to be pseudonym used by the president, Abedin exclaimed: ‘How is this not classified?'” the report says. “Abedin then expressed her amazement at the president’s use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email.”

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-09-24/how-not-classified-obama-used-pseudonym-emails-hillary-fbi-data-dump-reveals

  87. Was Obama emailing Hillary

    Why else would it have been necessary to ‘hammer’ 13 cell phones to oblivion? Especially, where there is a good chance the most damning thing on one of the cell phones is a conversation between Obama and Hillary the night of the Benghazi horror. And I hope to God there is incontrovertible proof ensnaring both of those snakes for a great take down!

  88. No formal invite to Gennifer Flowers…she won’t be there

    imho…good ploy…sent message to HC you want to play and get cute, we will play

    mission accomplished…Flowers name in media all weekend…
    to millenials…who’s GF? story told over and over again…media replayed story all weekend

    (again did not cost Donald a cent…while Hillary spends millions on her ads attacking him…the man is a genius)

    if I were DT I would completely ignore Cuban…do not engage with him…do not tweet to or about him…make him invisible…do not utter his name for any reason…nada…

    also if I were DT I would reserve the ‘right’ to invite any ‘surprise guest’ he wants…without announcing it beforehand…

    just let that person show up uannounced…maybe a Haitian protestor, Donald could even acknowledge from the stage when he goes on attack re: corrupt Clintons and Haiti…

    something that directly points to Hillary’s failures and corruption…

  89. there are so many surprise guestsa he could invite

    a parent who lost their child to illegal immigrant
    a Benghazi parent of lost son

    someone who can shine the light on Hillary’s dishonesty and bad judgement

    Mark Cuban is nothing…a showboater that means nothing to anyone…

  90. …love how the media narrative is how DT has the easier path…isn’t it interesting how the “clown”, the “buffoon” now is in a ‘better position’ for his very first Presidential debate…

    how convenient for BM to already being lowering the expectations for Hillary…

    doesn’t quite line up with her spending the last week studying and practicing for the debate…

    I will be watching Hillary’s eyes…if the daggers start early you know Donald is getting under HER skin…

    #ObamasLegacy

    Twenty eight people left their homes to do a little shopping. Never to return to their homes and beloved family members.

    On a weekly basis, this drip drip of single shooter murders is becoming the norm. The public’s reaction to murder has become complacent exactly as the globalists have planned. You can hardly find a popular tv show that isn’t about solving the most brutally insane murder committed by an addled brained barbarian. Americans are ripe for the picking. Much to his delight, we are sitting ducks in Obama’s Circus of Horrors.

  92. Mrs Smith,

    I was going to post the same tweet. Luckily not all 28 were killed and to my knowledge only the muslim from Washington has been identified, who by the way, the media kept calling a Hispanic.
    They have done this plenty of times before, I think the Hispanic community needs to speak up.

    Hardly any coverage.

    Sitting ducks.

  93. Gonzo-

    For all the protests that have gone from city to city burning looting destroying small businesses hurting and maiming people. How many of the black victims killed in police shootouts have been innocent victims/men?

    In my recollection.. All of the blacks killed in these instances have long histories of criminal behavior.

    Scott was released several years ago from a Texas prison after serving an 8yr stint for attempted murder. The families of these victims are blinded by some fantasy that their children are good law abiding citizens saying it’s unthinkable the victims deserved killing. As the Democratic governors of these states stand by day after day witness to the escalating needless destruction of personal property, bodily harm, far to long until public outrage resonates enough to STOP the insanity and quell the unruly mob arresting them and/or sending them packing.

    ( I read the other day, 70% of the arrested protesters destroying Charlotte were from out of state.)

  94. …just out driving in my car and thinking…

    and if I were Hillary or her camp I would be very angry at Mark Cuban…

    think about it…her camp began this whole thing when they made an issue and declared that Cuban would be in the front row…

    then Cuban…so full of himself…tweeted out to Donald that it was going to be humbling at Hofstra and that “It is on”

    so Cuban made it about himself vs Donald

    Donald checkmated him and raised him…and the Hillary camp…with Gennifer Flowers

    that quickly boomeranged back to stories about Hillary and Bill’s infidelities thru the decades…

    and the rest of Bill’s harem jumping into the news…Jones and Brodderick wanted in too…so the whole weekend the news cycle was hijacked and it became about Hillary and Bill’s marriage woes…complete with CNN having the Enquirer magazine onscreen with Gennifer and her 10 year affair with Bill for all to see…

    how dumb could they be…they play in the gutter and got dirty…

    if i were them I would put the zipper on Cuban’s mouth…his big mouth…because he caused all of this…amateur play that failed…

    go hang your head in shame Cuban…

  95. THE GLOBALIST PLAN FOR THE ELECTION

    1. It may be something, it may be nothing. But if it is true, then the only way we can stop it is by getting the word out. Since the days of the Old Man of the Mountains in the days of Omar Kaiam, assassins have moved under cover of darkness. Sunlight is the best disinfectant, electric light the best policeman as Justice Brandice observed.

    a. first, the anonymous caller on the New Jersey radio program announcing: “Trump out on September 26”.

    1. Note: this was noted by there is no record of it. It hearkens back to the time eight years ago, when an disguised Navy SEAL appeared on CNN, and criticized Obama for failing to give the kill order to the pirates, to rebut his claim that it was the military’s fault that no action had been taken. I went back into the records, and a company that records every broadcast and there was no trace of it. It is part of the ongoing war between the military and the CIA. According to Steve Piliazeck who led hostage negotiations and hit squads for our government around the world, there is such a war, and the civilians who run the CIA are and have been since the days of their founder Wild Bill Donovan a haven for Irish Catholics who have a love hierarchical authority and are more than a little bit crazy. Indeed the take down of General Paterus only began when he commenced an investigation into the CIA activities in Benghazi. Also, from my investigation into Soros, it is a known fact that he and Zeib Brezeski and the Rand Institute conducted the colors revolutions in eastern Europe in support of a globalist agenda. Finally, the Bush family, the Clintons and Obama all have proven connections to the CIA. You are free to dismiss all this as conspiracy theory or a matter of coincidence if you like. Either way, my conscience is clear.)

    b. second, two days after that announcement that Trump will be out on September 26, Ted Cruz announces that he will support the Republican nominee. After all these months why pray tell now?

    c. third, Rence Prebius, who is not part of any plot, but sees only things on the surface, congratulates Cruz on the endorsement, and notes in a FOX interview this morning that Cruz got the second most votes. (Note: both parties now have their “succession plans” if the nominee dies, quits or retires. For the dims it is the Moose in high heels. And for the Republicans it is the globalist Ted Cruz.

    2. Big media attacks this week:

    a. first, the Front Line special on Tuesday which features a roasting of Trump by Obama at the National Press dinner in Washington, followed by a selected clip from a statement by Trump’s African American outreach advisor who loves Trump, is very smart but can tend to say things at time which are not helpful, and PBS who is deeply threatened by Trump is there to capture it. Here she says that this was when Trump decided to run for President and he will force his enemies to bow down to him. Then a short clip by Roger Stone taken entirely out of context which seems to confirm that warped interpretation. (Note: I am told by a close friend who is a media expert that this is intended to target single college educated white women.)

    b. second, a CNN town hall featuring Obama in a town hall setting, where he will trash Trump. Coward that he is, Obama is petrified to go mano a mano on the same stage, so what you get is this naked abuse of power by CNN, who is just as petrified of letting Trump on the stage with their golden calf, because they know what happens when a lion meets a calf. (Note: I am told by the same media expert that this is intended to target blacks. More specifically, it is an emotional appeal to those who have not considered the fact that their situation has grown worse, not better, under the presidency of this lying Uncle Tom.

  96. The most recent interview with Jullian Assange (Wikileaks) offers a treasure trove of information as to what is really going on. Wikileaks has been around for 10 years and has a reputation for reliability second to none. Often, they uncover the smoking gun which penetrates the layers of spin, and informs the public of what our so called public servants are really doing/

    I invite you to review this video from start to finish. If you do not have the time to do so, here are the parts of it that made an impression on me, and help to shed new light on what is occurring—and is being hidden by our beloved albit uber corrupt big media.

    1) first, the fact that our CIA was involved in yet another Bay of Pigs fiasco, this time with Turkey. Not only did we fund the insurrection, promoted it through a false report on NBC that the leader they sought to depose, Erogan, that he was preparing to flee the country for Germany, and when it failed we left 100,000 people to be arrested and/or executed. And, significantly, the insurrection group were major contributors to the Clinton foundation. (see transcript @1900) How ironic that Hillary condemns Trump for threatening NATO. What Hillary and her CIA cohorts have done here will splinter that organization and make a future diplomatic relationship impossible unless Trump is elected and unless he cleans house at the CIA.

    2) second, how Hillary made sure that Debbie Wasserman Schultz got the top job at the DNC with Tim Kaine stepping down, and how she used the DNC to quash positive coverage of Bernie through calls to the head of MSNBC, Chuck Toad of MTP, and others. And how NBC planted dark and untrue stories about Bernie and how his supporters were violent. (see transcript @ 1600) And why when Debbie’s treachery was revealed by Wikileaks, she was fired but immediately hired by the Clinton campaign as honorary chairman, and Kaine rather than Bernie was selected as Vice President. Why did Hillary forgo the opportunity to unite the party by selecting Bernie, and waiting a week to take on little Debbie? The answer is Clinton’s power depends on many alliances, and it was more important to demonstrate to them that if you do something corrupt for me and get caught then you will be protected, than to unite the party. (see transcript @ 30:40). Hillary’s inability to jeopardize these alliances limit the moves she can make, and may doom her election prospects. (See transcript at 31:55)

    3) third, there is an indirect connection between Hillary and ISIS through CGI. It is a known fact that during her tenure as Secretary of State, the administration was using Libya as a conduit for arms shipments to jihadists, including ISIS. This has been established through investigative reporters like Sy Hirsch. Furthermore, one of the larger contributors to CGI is a French multinational company named LaFarge paid large sums of money to ISIS to do construction work in territory they control, according to a prominent French newspaper. (see transcript 34:46 et. seq). More emails disclosures on CGI will be forthcoming (see transcript 32:26 et seq) Speculation exists that these may show a direct link between Hillary and ISIS. If so then that will end her candidacy.

    4) fourth, Saudi Arabia is the largest contributor to CGI. Their undue influence over our foreign policy may be gaslighting however because we are becoming energy independent. (see transcript 40:00 et seq.)

    5) fifth, there is further evidence of the co mingling of the State Department and CGI with respect to Haiti. In the aftermath of the earthquake Bill Clinton became the de facto governor, and Hillary’s brother applied not to the Hatian government but to CGI for permits to do business there. (see transcript 40:00 et seq).

  97. The answer is Clinton’s power depends on many alliances, and it was more important to demonstrate to them that if you do something corrupt for me and get caught then you will be protected, than to unite the party. (see transcript @ 30:40).
    ———
    This is a telling observation to me.

    It explains why John Roberts fell through his ass on Obamacare. He was, after all, a Bush agent proposed to the court by another Bush agent Ted Cruz. It is important to recall that he was prepared to rule that the case was unconstitutional until suddenly and without notice he became unraveled and flipped. Speculation has it that the Obama people had something on him personally–some violation of the immigration laws, etc. That is one possibility. But the other possibility is that the coalition he is part of that got him on the court decided that Obamacare should pass, and they told him so. In a court of law, past services are legally insufficient to establish a quid pro quo necessary for a contract. But in the world of politics—and lord knows the Mafia, to the extent there is a difference, once I do you a favor you owe me, and you cannot allow time, tide or a little thing like the truth or even the law to honor your debt.

    The same thing logic applies in the case of Jim Comey, who will not survive as FBI director, because he has besmirched the reputation of that organization as the premier law enforcement agency in the world, and that does not sit well with the agents in that organization many of whom are true blue Americans and proud of who they worked for. Again, speculation suggests that he was involved in the UBC matter where Hillary shut down a case against them in exchange for huge speaking fees to her husband. He may have been a party to that. That too is one possibility and the facts on that one will probably come out at some point. However, once again, the other possibility is that the faction he is tied to who got him where he is after he left the Southern District of New York and private practice, wanted the Hillary prosecution to go away, because other things would unravel. And some of those things involve other countries like Saudi Arabia, and Hillary may well have been using that information as leverage to avoid prosecution. That is one story I heard.

  98. Color me suspicious if you like, but I have to wonder whether there is any correlation between the promise by Hatch to pass TPP during the lame duck session, McConnell’s refusal to include a rejection of TPP in the continuing resolution, and the sudden decision by Hatch to give an award to a member of the US Supreme Court whom he has never shown any interest in before and who might otherwise hold that give away of national sovereignty and US jobs to be unconstitutional, which it most likely is. Roberts will go down like a house of cards, and that would be enough to uphold that treasonous accord. But knowing what the public reaction will be, and the opposition from the White House if Trump is elected, they may be seeking to inoculate themselves through a unanimous court decision. Time will tell.

  100. Obama’s Colossal Email Lie Final Test for Tarnished MSM
    BY ROGER L SIMON SEPTEMBER 24, 2016 CHAT 1550 COMMENTS

    That Barack Obama communicated in 2012—under a redacted pseudonym—with Hillary Clinton on the then secretary of State’s permeable home-brew email server and then claimed he did not know of that server’s existence until it was reported in the press in 2014 is far more than the usual politician’s prevarication.

    Since the fish rots from the top—and in this case it stinks to high heaven—the surfacing of this particular presidential lie calls to question the entire FBI inquiry into the Clinton server, an investigation whose credibility was paper thin in the first place and has now completely vanished.

    It’s time to ask that age-old question: “What did the president know and when did he know it?”

    That we do know (as of this Friday’s dump) that one of Clinton’s own IT workers referred to her then just-announced 60-day email retention policy (who does that?) as “Hillary’s coverup operation” almost (but not completely) tells the story in those three quoted words. Even though they say it’s not the crime, but the coverup, in this case, it’s both.

    SPONSORED

    The seriousness of this crime/coverup—involving the national security of our country—makes Watergate seem like a minor kerfuffle at a sewing circle. If the mainstream media does not investigate this thoroughly, they are unquestionably the court eunuchs many of us have accused them of being. Worse, they are the enablers of the decline of Western civilization. Without a free and honest press — some of it anyway — not to mention adherence to the rule of law, such a civilization cannot survive. And the decline can come remarkably swiftly. We have plenty of examples of that from twentieth century Europe.

    Does this sound over-heated? You could say so, but how do you avoid the conclusion, given the MSM’s passivity, or is it collaboration, that they do not care a whit about the rule of law as long as their side wins?

    5 Clinton Aides Who Got ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ Cards

    But not to be entirely negative, I am going to offer some help to the Fourth Estate, since investigative journalism has not, for some time, been their long suit. Fortunately, via the Internet (at least for a few weeks until Obama passes us all into the censorious hands of the United Nations) we have the “wisdom of crowds” to draw upon. Yesterday, the following fascinating comment from one “susanholly” appeared under my column “What Happens When You Can’t Trust the FBI and the State Department?” I have no idea who “susan” is or if her conjectures are accurate, but she has given us food for thought. I don’t often quote comments at length, but this time it seems worth it:

    susanholly:
    The timeline tells it all:

    Monday, June 27, 2016: Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch on the tarmac in Phoenix.

    Saturday, July 2, 2016: There’s this shifty FBI interview set-up, with Hillary on a Saturday morning on a HOLIDAY WEEKEND, at the FBI Headquarters in Washington – when LOTS of FBI employees were off (fewer witnesses). The entire interview was jut a charade and Comey is a LIAR – he covered this up. Who was actually present is an interesting question – out of Hillary’s team of lawyers, the FBI redacted ONE name from the notes. It listed David E. Kendall, Cheryl D. Mills, Heather Samuelson, Katherine Turner. The NY Times, back in July, reported that other lawyer as Amy Saharia, but I doubt that is the truth. It makes NO sense to redact her name. The FBI redacted the names of THREE DOJ officials present. Who the heck was present on a Saturday morning, on a long holiday weekend??? It’s a cover-up.

    Tuesday , July 5, 2016: In the morning, after this long holiday weekend, FBI Director Comey makes his bizarre announcement that there would be no criminal charges.

    On July 2nd, the New York Times reported:

    “Accompanying Mrs. Clinton into the meeting were her lawyer David E. Kendall; Cheryl D. Mills and Heather Samuelson, longtime aides who are also lawyers; and two lawyers from Mr. Kendall’s firm, Williams & Connolly, Katherine Turner and Amy Saharia.

    Eight officials from the F.B.I. and the Department of Justice conducted the interview, according to a person who was familiar with the substance of the session but declined to be named because the meeting was private. This person characterized the meeting as “civil” and “businesslike.””

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07

    So, when the FBI released Hillary’s interview notes, the first paragraph makes no sense at all, when compared to the NY Times report on Juy 2nd. The Clinton lawyer redaction would be Amy Saharia, which makes no sense. Why would the FBI redact her name? She’s a nobody in this invesigation and even Mills who was granted immunity is listed. Then there’s the FBI/DOJ officials. The FBI Notes list FBI Section Chief, Peter P. Strzok and David Laufman and there are three blocks of redactions, which would seem to indicate 5 FBI/DOJ officials present, compared to the EIGHT mentioned in the NY Times story. Now, if that one very long block of redacted information is more than one name, we are still left with the FBI gave us 2 names of FBI/DOJ people present and the NY Times reported EIGHT. Who are these 6 FBI/DOJ people and why were their names redacted and why on earth redact Amy Saharia’s name?

    Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch STAGED this charade; they planned it on June 27th on the tarmac in Phoenix.

    SPONSORED

    Back to me.

    I’m not sure susanholly is entirely correct that it had to be planned in detail between Bill and Loretta in the attorney general’s plane that day. Their meeting was too short and, besides, Lynch and Comey (in cahoots with the White House?) were quite capable of doing the planning by themselves. They already had their marching orders, direct or implicit. Perhaps all Clinton was looking for was assurances his wife wouldn’t be carted off and the campaign would go on. Comey might give her a tongue-lashing for cover, but she would be exonerated.

    How Ill Is Hillary Clinton?
    Did Bill give a quid pro quo for that? Who knows? Will we ever know anything close to the whole truth? It’s hard to say and may depend on the emergence of a new “Deep Throat” or Julian Assange revealing all in October. One thing we do know—if Hillary Clinton is elected, she will never be able to govern effectively. Only the most credulous will believe anything she says.

  101. We have here an article by John Schindler a security expert and former National Security Agency analyst and counterintelligence officer. A specialist in espionage and terrorism, he’s also been a Navy officer and a War College professor. He’s published four books and is on Twitter at @20committee. He proves that the FBI investigation was a sham, even though national security was compromised and the explanation is that the agency, epitomized by James Comey, just like our dearly beloved big media has become too politicized to perform its essential mission. I have got to believe thousands of agent are asking themselves, some form of the question how do I keep my job, and how do I get my reputation back? This analysis is the brutal truth of the matter, not by some opiniated asshole like me, but by someone who understands the system, knows what occurs and is willing to give us the truth, which big media steadfastly refused to do. One of the things I have learned in the past year is that to some people, namely he elites, caviar is more addictive than heroin, and like the nickle bag whores they are big media is willing to commit any crime to feed their habit. A friend of mine who was a mob busting us attorney and later a district court and appellate judge once opined that club fed is no cake walk because those who have lived the high life no nothing different, and to be deprived of their freedom and treated like a common criminal can be a fate worse than death. So can missing one morsel of caviar–the goddamned stuff is addictive as hell if you are one of those “special” people. Therefore they close ranks to prevent its loss, as we are seeing right now.

    The FBI Investigation of EmailGate Was a Sham

    NSA Analyst: We now have incontrovertible proof the Bureau never had any intention of prosecuting Hillary Clinton

    From the moment the EmailGate scandal went public more than a year ago, it was obvious that the Federal Bureau of Investigation never had much enthusiasm for prosecuting Hillary Clinton or her friends. Under President Obama, the FBI grew so politicized that it became impossible for the Bureau to do its job – at least where high-ranking Democrats are concerned.

    As I observed in early July, when Director James Comey announced that the FBI would not be seeking prosecution of anyone on Team Clinton over EmailGate, the Bureau had turned its back on its own traditions of floating above partisan politics in the pursuit of justice. “Malfeasance by the FBI, its bending to political winds, is a matter that should concern all Americans, regardless of their politics,” I stated, noting that it’s never a healthy turn of events in a democracy when your secret police force gets tarnished by politics.

    Just how much Comey and his Bureau punted on EmailGate has become painfully obvious since then. Redacted FBI documents from that investigation, dumped on the Friday afternoon before the long Labor Day weekend, revealed that Hillary Clinton either willfully lied to the Bureau, repeatedly, about her email habits as secretary of state, or she is far too dumb to be our commander-in-chief.

    Worse, the FBI completely ignored the appearance of highly classified signals intelligence in Hillary’s email, including information lifted verbatim from above-Top Secret NSA reports back in 2011. This crime, representing the worst compromise of classified information in EmailGate – that the public knows of, at least – was somehow deemed so uninteresting that nobody at the FBI bothered to ask anybody on Team Clinton about it.

    This stunning omission appears highly curious to anybody versed in counterintelligence matters, not least since during Obama’s presidency, the FBI has prosecuted Americans for compromising information far less classified than what Clinton and her staff exposed on Hillary “unclassified” email server of bathroom infamy.

    This week, however, we learned that there is actually no mystery at all here. The FBI was never able to get enough traction in its investigation of EmailGate to prosecute anybody since the Bureau had already granted immunity to key players in that scandal.

    Granting immunity is a standard practice in investigations, and is sometimes unavoidable. Giving a pass to Bryan Pagliano, Hillary’s IT guru who set up her email and server, made some sense since he understands what happened here, technically speaking, and otherwise is a small fish. The wisdom of giving him a pass now seems debatable, though, since Pagliano has twice refused to testify before Congress about his part in EmailGate, blowing off subpoenas. Just this week the House Oversight Committee recommended that Pagliano be cited for contempt of Congress for his repeated no-shows. That vote was on strictly partisan lines, with not a single Democrat on the committee finding Pagliano’s ignoring of Congressional subpoenas to be worthy of censure.

    Now it turns out the FBI granted immunity to much bigger fish in the Clinton political tank. Three more people got a pass from the Bureau in exchange for their cooperation: Hillary lawyer Heather Samuelson, State Department IT boss John Bental, and – by far the most consequential – Cheryl Mills, who has been a Clinton flunky-cum-factotum for decades.

    Mills served as the State Department’s Chief of Staff and Counselor throughout Hillary’s tenure as our nation’s top diplomat. Granting her immunity in EmailGate, given her deep involvement in that scandal – including the destruction of tens of thousands of emails so they could not be handed over to the FBI – now seems curious, to say the least, particularly because Mills sat in on Hillary’s chat with the Bureau regarding EmailGate.

    This was in fact so highly irregular that Jason Chaffetz, chair of the House Oversight Committee, pronounced himself “absolutely stunned” by the FBI’s granting of immunity to Cheryl Mills – which he learned of only on Friday. “No wonder they couldn’t prosecute a case,” Rep. Chaffetz observed of Comey’s Bureau: “They were handing out immunity deals like candy.”

    Not to mention that Mills has a longstanding and well-deserved reputation in Washington for helping the Clintons dodge investigation after investigation. When Bill and Hillary need a fixer to help them bury the bodies – as they say inside the Beltway – trusty Cheryl Mills has been on call for the last quarter-century.

    She played a key role in the Whitewater scandal of the 1990s – and so did James Comey. Fully two decades ago, when Comey was a Senate investigator, he tried to get Mills, then deputy counsel to Bill Clinton’s White House, to hand over relevant documents. Mills went full dog-ate-my-homework, claiming that a burglar had taken the files, leading Comey to unavoidably conclude that she was obstructing his investigation. Mills’ cover-up, the Senate investigators assessed, encompassed “destruction of documents” and “highly improper” behavior.

    Such misconduct is a career-ender for normal people in Washington, but not for Cheryl Mills, who over the last several decades has followed the Clintons everywhere they go. Mills has proven her loyalty to Clinton, Inc. time and again, and that loyalty has been rewarded with a pass on prosecution in EmailGate.

    To say nothing of the fact that as chief of staff at Foggy Bottom, Mills was in no way functioning as Hillary’s personal lawyer, as Clinton advocates have contended. Even her other title, State Department Counselor, has nothing to do with legal matters, despite the name. That role is traditionally assigned to an esteemed foreign policy guru who is supposed to offer sage counsel to the secretary of state. Mills’ predecessor as Counselor was Eliot Cohen, one of the country’s preeminent scholars of international relations. Leave it to the Clintons to turn that job over to one of their trusted cabal, translating Counselor in mafia fashion as consigliere.

    “The whole thing stinks,” explained a retired FBI senior official who professed dismay about the state of his former employer. “This was impossible in my time, unthinkable,” he rued, expressing shock that the Bureau allowed Mills to remain involved in the investigation, including acting as Hillary’s personal lawyer, despite her own immunity.

    How exactly Cheryl Mills got immunity, and what its terms were, is the long-awaited “smoking gun” in EmailGate, the clear indication that, despite countless man-hours expended on the year-long investigation, James Comey and his FBI never had any intention of prosecuting Hillary Clinton – or anyone – for her mishandling of classified information as secretary of state.

    Why Comey decided to give Mills a get-out-of-jail-free card is something that needs proper investigation. This is raw, naked politics in all its ugly and cynical glory. Corruption is the tamest word to describe this sort of dirty backroom deal which makes average Americans despise politics and politicians altogether.

    How high in this administration EmailGate went is the key question, and it’s been reopened by the latest tranche of redacted documents that the FBI released – on Friday afternoon, as usual. There are lots of tantalizing tidbits here, including the fact that early in Hillary’s term at Foggy Bottom, State Department officials were raising awkward legal questions about her highly irregular email and server arrangements.

    Most intriguing, however, is the revelation that Hillary was communicating with President Obama via personal email, and he was using an alias. The alias he used with Hillary, and apparently others, was withheld by the FBI, and let it be said the fact that the president wanted to disguise his identity in unclassified email is not all that odd.

    What is odd, however, is the fact that Obama previously told the media that he only learned of Hillary’s irregular email and server arrangements from “news reports.” How the president failed to notice that he was emailing his top diplomat at her personal, clintonmail.com address, not a state.gov account, particularly when they were discussing official business, is something Congress may want to find out – since certainly the FBI won’t.

    Indeed, when she was being interviewed by the Bureau, Hillary’s ever-faithful sidekick Huma Abedin, was asked about President Obama’s emailing to Hillary using an alias. “How is this not classified?” inquired the mystified Abedin.

    How indeed?

    The fact that the FBI redacted the contents of that email indicates that is was classified, although it was sent to Hillary’s personal email and transited her personal server.

    This, like so many aspects of EmailGate, seems destined to remain a mystery, at least for now. The State Department won’t release the full collection of Clinton’s emails until after our November 8 election. Just this week a Federal judge blasted Foggy Bottom for its slow-rolling: “The State Department needs to start cooperating to the fullest extent possible. They are not perceived to be doing that.” Nevertheless, the public won’t get to see all of Hillary’s emails until after Americans decide who the next president will be.

    For Hillary Clinton, winning that election may be a legal necessity to protect her from prosecution. Congress, animated by these latest revelations of illegality and corruption, will now pursue her with vigor, while an FBI in the hands of Donald Trump seems likely to show an interest in EmailGate which the Bureau never possessed under President Obama.

    Regardless, this story has emerged yet again to tar Hillary Clinton’s reputation at the worst possible time, when her campaign is lagging in the polls. We can be sure that her Republican opponent will mention EmailGate in Monday’s inaugural presidential debate. The Democratic nominee should have coherent answers about her email and server at the ready if she wants to avoid a debacle before the cameras.

    Holt announced the 2006, 2007 and 2008 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show for the USA Network

    Which means he is well qualified to moderate the “debate”–compared to the rest of the NBC staff.

    Spare me Chuck Toadie, give me Andrea and I will be happy.

    Actually give Andrea to Holt so she can save him if he starts to slip (up).

    I expect she will be there and provide the one bright spot in an otherwise boring evening.

    P.S. I really think he is underpaid.

  103. How is it that Lester is paid $4.5 million per year and Andrea makes only $750,000 per year.

    She has been with NBC decades longer than he has.

    This is a clear violation of the equal pay act.

    The fact that he is black is no defense.

  104. Hillary, Democrats, True Conservatives, and US globalists are making the same mistakes that the UK Remainers did. https://www.ft.com/content/5cd1626e-80b6-11e6-bc52-0c7211ef3198 The public isn’t afraid of them anymore, nor their scare tactics, nor an economic depression because they are already in one. “The lead-up to the Brexit vote offers four important lessons to those who are fighting the forthcoming campaigns from an establishment position. They matter because some of the mistakes made by the pro-EU camp in the UK are being repeated elsewhere with the same enthusiasm.” (The Remain campaign was masterminded by Obama’s foul piece of work Jim Messina whose fingerprints are all over Hillary’s campaign too).

    “The first is: do not rely on opinion polls or other forms of crystal-ball gazing. The crassness of the pro-Brexit campaign galvanised millions of voters who did not turn out in previous elections. I have been told that US polling techniques are technically superior to those in the UK. Maybe. But if the decisive factor in an election is turnout, then even the best polls cannot be relied upon. The same goes for betting markets. If there is genuine uncertainty, market mechanisms do not produce any information. It just means that more people are getting it wrong.”

    “The second lesson is: do not double down.”….”you need to do more than pull out studies by liberal economic think-tanks. You should offer credible policies to address the decline in real incomes.”

    “This leads us to a third lesson: do not insult or provoke the voters. After the Brexit referendum, the losing side kept on pointing out that pro-Brexit supporters were older and on average less educated. Hillary Clinton’s infamous depiction of half of Mr Trump’s supporters as deplorable fits the same category. The more you insult the other side, the more you end up driving undecideds into their camp.”

    “And finally, do not scare the voters. Project Fear was a disaster in the UK. If your median voter’s income has stagnated for more than a decade, they are not going to be scared by the threat of a recession. Why should a low income earner in the UK worry that the City of London will lose its financial passport? The argument is politically illiterate and economically dubious.”

    This is about as elementary as it comes. It is the realm of “duh” stuff. So why does Hillary, her “staff”, Dems in general, the numbnut Republican flunkies, the DC elitists, and all of the globalist money-men insist on ignoring such simple political and economic maxims? They are in a bubble and it does not affect them. They don’t care if real income is going down for most as long as theirs is going up or at least stable. Economically and politically tone deaf they have their notions and belief system and nothing is going to get them off that track even changing facts and world events (thank you Ivies and OxBridge). They lie as a matter of course. They are dumb. And nasty. Everything was really going to plan but they can’t admit it. And globalism is blowing up globally in many different ways and being stuck in ideology they can’t back out this far along. This is why Merkel keeps saying things will work out with the migrant horde when it is obvious it won’t. Hillary is doubling down when it is suicidal politically. And the UK sees that the Remainers were liars, scare-mongers, and open border nuts for cheap labor and to disrupt the country into economic collapse. Globalism has too many similarities to a cult or weirdo religion to drive an economic bubble system. Their truisms are not true. They say the same platitudes (more and more angrily) when it is blatantly false to all but the brainwashed or those paid to execute it. Just another big pyramid scheme is unraveling with the bottom falling out on the near horizon. The speculators, acolytes, and marks in the Tulip mania and the South Sea Company disaster (see Bubble Act of 1720) got hysterical and very nasty too when their plans went tits up too.

    The threats to leave the US by those connected economically or socially to globalism if Trump is elected is par for the course. The manipulators, speculators, thieves, and bankrupts scattered like roaches with a flipped on light switch when the South Sea and Tulip bubbles burst too. A lot of them immigrated. Or went down several notches in social class since they were idiots. The rash of mental illness and psychiatric treatment reported by the NYT is not new either. The panic and anxiety, even if they don’t fully understand why, is real. Lucky Trump.

  105. Carr: Debate fix is in…for Hillary Clinton

    Howie Carr Sunday, September 25, 2016

    First presidential debates are a lot like Super Bowls — most years they don’t live up to the pregame hype. How could they?

    The difference between debates and Super Bowls is that at kickoff, the score is even, 0-0. Tomorrow night at 9, Hillary Clinton starts with at least a 14-0 lead, maybe 17-0. That’s her built-in mainstream media advantage.

    Vegas wouldn’t touch this one with a 10-foot pole. It’s fixed.

    Whatever happens on Long Island, Hillary will immediately be declared the winner by 98 percent of the press. The headlines are already written, the phony-baloney polls and focus groups are ready to roll.

    Hillary has to accomplish only two feats in Hempstead. The first one is to get off a couple of canned zingers for her adoring fans in social media to run with Tuesday morning.

    What’s the over/under on how many minutes it will take her to say, “I’m a grandmother”? Comrade Chris Matthews and Andrea Mitchell will lap it up with a spoon. Oh, she so humanized herself, blah blah blah.

    Hillary’s second task may prove more daunting: She has to remain vertical for 90 long minutes, with no oxygen mask or iron lung up there on the stage.

    As we all know, there’s something wrong with Hillary, and I don’t mean her cirrhosis of the soul. There’s that hacking cough, and her tendency to collapse in sweltering 78-degree heat waves. Delivering prepared remarks, she sometimes blanks out in mid-sentence. And now there’s that thing with her eyes.

    Still, she’s got it a lot easier than Donald Trump. Think about it — if he interrupts her, he’s a misogynist bully. If she interrupts him, she is woman, hear her roar. She is powering through. They’ll put the blast on him if he calls her “Hillary.” How dare he not respect Madame Secretary!

    With Democrats, if it weren’t for the double standard, there would be no standards at all.

    Trump can’t get down in the weeds with her. He’s got to hammer away with a few catchphrases — what the Clinton News Network in the post-debate analysis will describe as “dog whistles.”

    “Fivefold increase in immigration of ‘unvetted’ Syrian refugees … emails … law ’n’ order … Make America Great Again.”

    Maybe throw in an oldie-but-a-goodie: “Are you better off than you were eight years ago?”

    Unless you’re an illegal alien or a Muslim terrorist on welfare, there can only be one possible answer to that question.

    Then there’s the moderator, Lester Holt. They say he’s a registered Republican, but then so are the Bushes, Colin Powell and Susan Collins. He’s seen his NBC colleagues Matt Lauer and Jimmy Fallon excoriated for committing the ultimate heresy — declining to spit in Donald Trump’s face when they had him on their shows.

    Guaranteed, Lester won’t make the same mistake. He doesn’t want to be shipped back to the Palookaville known as MSNBC.

  106. Trump has said that he’ll be respectful towards her during the debate, but if she starts attacking him personally, then the gloves come off.

    BREAKING: DR. TED NOEL REVEALS HILLARY’S MAJOR NEW PARKINSON’S HEALTH WARNINGS THAT COULD END HER
    Published on Sep 21, 2016

    Hillary Clinton’s health is under a microsope now more than ever. Key observers have uncovered major new indicators that back up Dr. Ted Noel’s Parkinson’s revelations. There are two videos, 7/23 and 9/19 that show disturbing eye signs in Hillary. 7/23 has persistent nystagmus at rest and 9/19 shows loss of vergence. The former is more characteristic of post-concussion syndrome and the latter well described in Parkinson’s Disease literature. If she shows either during the debate, she’s toast. Dr. Noel returns to Next News to give you his shocking analysis.

  108. Arnold Palmer: ‘The King’ of golf dies at 87

    Arnold Palmer was the telegenic golfer who took a staid sport to TV and to the masses. Arnold Palmer was named “Athlete of the Decade” for the 1960s. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal. He was the first golfer to surpass $1 million in earnings; his biggest tourney win got him $50,000

    Before accepting the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2004, Arnold Palmer shared a few laughs with President George W. Bush and gave the commander in chief a few golf tips in the East Room of the White House.

    Eight years later, when honored with the Congressional Gold Medal, Palmer, who again offered golf tips to some of the most important politicians in the country, jokingly thanked the House and the Senate for being able to agree on something.

    After receiving the highest civilian awards given in the United States, Palmer went outside each day, at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and the U.S. Capitol, and signed autographs for hundreds of people.

    That was Palmer, a man who connected with the masses, who related to kids, the hourly wage employee, the CEO — and Presidents.

    Palmer, who died Sunday in Pittsburgh at age 87, was the accessible common man who would become the King and lead his own army. Along the way he became one of the sport’s best players and a successful businessman, philanthropist, trailblazing advertising spokesman, talented golf course designer and experienced aviator.

    Sweet man- personality plus, typical demeanor of the way we were years ago. Of course, that was until the fools who voted for BO in 08′ fast tracked us to the destruction of America.

    Arnold Palmer: ‘The King’ of golf dies at 87

    de mortiumus nil nisi bonum

    a friend of mine is a member of Bay Hill in Florida which was Palmer’s course.

    he sent me pictures last year with Arnie and his grandchildren.

    Arnie was a great spokesman for the game, when it entered the television era.

    his struggles against a better player frankly, Jack Nicklaus were morality players.

    his golf swing was . . . unique

    his putting was . . . aggressive, and therefore, spotty

    his “charge” was the battle cry of his fans

    he had to largest private collection of putters

    because he never had any confidence in a single putter

    he was a hero to me in my youth

    today my feelings about his, while positive, are more ambivalent.
