An atomic bomb before the second presidential debate just exploded inside #Hillary2016. Total devastation ensues. Donald J. Trump cannot possibly want more for Sunday. We hope Trump’s prep team knows how to exploit all the good news. Indeed, there is so much good news for Trump it is very difficult to fully focus on all the good news. Even the “bad” news for Trump, in light of history might very well turn out to be more “good” news. Let’s look at the alleged “bad” news first.
The “bad” news is that as the nuclear bomb wiped out Hillary2016 Brooklyn hindquarters, at the same time a tape emerged from a decade ago with “locker room banter” of Trump with Billy Bush. Trump crudely assesses his love of women. The Hillary Clinton campaign will in desperation cling to this tape. Hillary Clinton has already tried to use the issue.
This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president. https://t.co/RwhW7yeFI2

Um, is this the dumbest response ever??? Doesn’t Hillary Clinton remember that in 1992 there were many “bimbo eruptions” with rape allegations, Gennifer Flowers in a press conference asked about Bill Clinton’s penis size and whether or not he used a condom when he penetrated her, with the result that a country desperate for CHANGE voted for Bill Clinton despite all the “bimbo eruptions“???
Dumbest response ever!!!
Hillary Clinton’s response is a sign of her entire strategy for Sunday’s debate. Hillary will once again goad, goad, goad, goad, goad, Donald J. Trump. As we advised before the first debate, Donald Trump should not be goaded into foolishness. In fact, all the great advice we provided for Trump and Pence (was any pre-debate analysis better than ours?) holds for this coming debate.
Hillary Clinton will try to goad Donald Trump into silly side issues at the debate. Hopefully Trump will ignore the silly issues and get to the powerful responses he can provide. There is some hope Trump will heed our advice at the second debate because Trump immediately turned to Bill Clinton for help after the tape emerged. Trump said Bill Clinton had said worse to him on the golf course. We imagine that Newt Gingrich might soon come forth with his memories of when Bill Clinton in the White House told him ‘there is nothing better than a glass of Scotch, a cigar, and some pus*y’.
Trump’s immediate go to Bill Clinton for his defense is smart. When we first started considering what Trump and Hillary should do at the second debate we thought Bill Clinton should have been the topic of greatest value for Trump. As we advised Mike Pence, we thought Pence should use Bill Clinton’s attack on ObamaCare as the focus of the second debate. Not any more. Donald Trump has even bigger fish to fry.
We’ll get back to ObamaCare. But the paramount issue of Sunday’s debate exploded in a mushroom cloud in Brooklyn today.
The nuclear bomb that just took out Hillary2016 was dropped by Wikileaks. The entire Donald J. Trump campaign message is now surrounded by steel because the Wikileaks revelations confirms the worst anyone imagined about what Hillary Clinton told Wall Street executives in private, behind closed doors. Bernie Sanders was an idiot not to hinge his entire campaign, as we advised, on the transcripts of Hillary Clinton’s paid speeches. The transcripts of those speeches are the biggest nuclear bomb ever to drop on a presidential campaign:
Excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s closed-door paid speeches, including to financial firms, appeared to be made public for the first time on Friday when WikiLeaks published thousands of hacked emails from her campaign chairman.
The speech transcripts, a major subject of contention during the Democratic primary, include quotes from Clinton about her distance from middle-class life (“I’m kind of far removed”); her vision of strategic governing (“you need both a public and a private position”); and her views on trade, health care, and Wall Street (“even if it may not be 100 percent true, if the perception is that somehow the game is rigged.”)
John Podesta, the Clinton campaign chairman, was the latest victim in a wave of hacks on key figures in Democratic politics and the political establishment in what administration officials say is an effort by Russia to undermine the election.
Clinton research director Tony Carrk sent the excerpts in an email to Podesta and other senior aides, sourcing the “the flags from HRC’s paid speeches” to the Harry Walker Agency, the firm that represented Clinton and arranged her dozens of public and private paid speech deals after she left the State Department in early 2013.
The email is dated Jan. 25, 2016, with the subject line, “HRC Paid Speeches.” [snip]
During this year’s long-fought Democratic primary, Sen. Bernie Sanders repeatedly pressed Clinton to release the transcripts of the speeches, which were delivered to a variety of groups, including major firms like Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank. [snip]
Late into the primary, Sanders argued that the American people had a right to know what Clinton told well-heeled audiences on Wall Street about her economic policy. [snip]
“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders,” Clinton is quoted as telling a Brazilian Bank in 2013. “We have to resist, protectionism, other kinds of barriers to market access and to trade.”
The great bulk of the Trump campaign is the claim that Trump will protect and defend American borders and defeat trade deals that hurt the United States. Hillary’s statement to a Brazilian Bank “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders’” is confirmation of Trump’s campaign message.
In addition Hillary Clinton’s greatest weakness this election cycle is the question of what she says to the powerful behind closed doors and what she tells the public. As in Benghazi the charge is that Hillary in public blamed a video while in private she knew it was a terrorist attack that destroyed the American installation and killed the ambassador and several other brave Americans.
Freakin’ “open borders”??????????
Millennials and Bernie Sanders kooks are now easy for Trump to appeal to. Anyone that believed Hillary Clinton on TPP and/or “open borders” is proved a dunce.
Donald J. Trump’s “Uranium One” allegations about Hillary Clinton also come to the fore.
But it is “OPEN BORDERS” that atomically exploded and wiped out Hillary2016. Total devastation:
Wikileaks Dump: Hillary Dreams of ‘Open Trade and Open Borders’
In excerpts from paid speeches, Clinton admits to taking different public and private positions
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton admitted she takes two positions on policy issues.
One in private — ostensibly, the “real” position and one for the public, according to a damaging email leak of released on Friday by Wikileaks that included clips of Clinton’s paid speeches to Wall Street banks and other organizations.
“You just have to sort of figure out how to — getting back to that word, ‘balance’ — how to balance the public and the private efforts that are necessary to be successful, politically, and that’s not just a comment about today,” Clinton said in a speech for the National Multi-Housing Council on April 23, 2013. “It is unsavory, and it always has been that way, but we usually end up where we need to be. But if everybody’s watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So, you need both a public and a private position.”
Supporters of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, the independent socialist from Vermont, are likely to be turned off by remarks that Clinton wants open borders and open trade.
“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere,” Clinton told Banco Itau, a Brazilian bank, on May 16, 2013.
For Trump, who has campaigned against illegal immigration and bad trade deals, the remark is a gold mine likely to be brought up at Sunday’s town hall debate.
Bernie Sanders’ supporters and millennials should be outraged. Donald J. Trump can use the “hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders” to savagely attack on Sunday. That is not the only attack Trump can use to lure millennials. There is ObamaCare. There is Bill Clinton calling it the craziest thing he has ever seen. Donald J. Trump can point out to millennials that they are the ones forced to buy the crap called ObamaCare.
Donald J. Trump on Sunday can remind Americans of all the lies told by Obama on ObamaCare and how Hillary Clinton attacked Bernie Sanders to blast Sanders as somehow racist because ObamaCare is a mess. Hillary Clinton’s support of ObamaCare, in public, should be a highlight of Trump’s Sunday response.
ObamaCare is collapsing:
>ObamaCare’s Meltdown Has Arrived
With insurers pulling back, half of Tennesseans covered under the plan are losing their coverage.
Tennessee is ground zero for ObamaCare’s nationwide implosion. Late last month the state insurance commissioner, Julie Mix McPeak, approved premium increases of up to 62% in a bid to save the exchange set up under the Affordable Care Act. “I would characterize the exchange market in Tennessee as very near collapse,” she said.
It’s not just Tennessee. The ObamaCare collapse is nationwide. Hospitals now even charge extra dollars when a mother holds her baby for the first time.
Stuart Varney forced one of the horrible Emanuel brothers to confess that the Hillary plan to save ObamaCare is more taxpayer dollars for subsidies, more taxpayer dollars for insurance companies, and greater penalties for those that don’t get forced ObamaCare. Donald Trump should tell millennials that ObamaCare will continue to loot their pockets and the penalties for not bowing down to ObamaCare will cost them thousands more:
Higher penalties to pay for junk insurance with high deductibles and ever higher premiums. ObamaCare!
ObamaCare and open borders!!!! “Let’s vote on it.” That’s what Donald J. Trump has to declare on Sunday’s second presidential debate.
Sunday’s debate will be a “town hall”. This means that Martha Raddatz and Anderson Cooper will pretend audience members will ask the candidates questions. In reality Martha and Anderson will write questions and they select some dupe in the audience to ask the question. Fortunately for Donald J. Trump he is very good in this type of forum.
Hillary Clinton’s smartest move on Sunday is to goad Donald J. Trump with attacks on his father and his family. Donald J. Trump’s smartest move is not to allow himself to be goaded but instead focus on “open borders” and ObamaCare. Those are winners for him. Trump at every turn should be kind and gracious to the audience and turn every answer into an attack on “open borders” and ObamaCare.
Whenever Hillary Clinton says anything Trump can ask if that is her public or private view. Then Trump can ask Hillary why she has not executed her proposal over her decades in office. Then Trump can ask Hillary why Obama has not done what she proposes. Rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat.
Even the ugliest Trump haters and biggest leftists understand that Obama is a curse for Hillary and wonder why Obama has not done what Hillary proposes:
The immediate problem for Democrats this year is simple, really: it is hard to criticize power when your own leader is the most powerful person in the land.
The larger problem facing them is the terminal irrelevance of their great, overarching campaign theme. Remember the “man from Hope”? “Hope is on the way”? “Keep hope alive”? Well, this year “hope” is most assuredly dead. Thanks to Obama’s flagrant hope-dealing in the dark days of 2008 – followed up by his failure to reverse the disintegration of the middle class – this favorite Democratic cliché has finally become just that: an empty phrase. Today as the Democrats go into battle against Trump, they find that their rallying cry has lost its magic. Hillary is discovering how difficult it is to win an election without hope.
Rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat… recycle… rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat.
An atomic bomb exploded today in Brooklyn.
