The Swamp Strikes Back: Death Star Targets Cubs, @RealDonaldTrump, Brexit

The stock market rapidly rose to over 370 points in anticipation of a Hillary Clinton victory, the British courts try to overturn the Brexit vote in jolly ol’ parliamentary Britain, polls are used as poles to beat down the moral of the revolutionary masses, the Washington D.C./Wall Street/Big Media/Academia ruling class swamp is inside a fully operational Death Star, and the target is Donald J. Trump. It’s dark days for the rebellion.

There’s no way the Death Star can be blown up and the Republic restored!!! There’s no way DJT can align his flying fighter to blow up the technological apparatus of death that is the political ruling class Empire. There’s just no way.

There’s just no way to win – if you don’t fight. There’s no way to win if you don’t fight. If you go into a fight thinking of your eyes and nose bleeding from opponents’ punches, you’ve already lost. To win you have to fight with victory in sight. You have to John Paul Jones fight, fearlessly.

In Britain, Nigel Farage is tying to Make Britain Great Again. He’s leading the great unwashed masses in revolt against the ruling class courts which are in defiance of the people of Britain. But as important as the Brexit fight is – it is in the new world, America, that the swamp is rising to drown the voices of the people – because America is the leader of the free world and the West.

Fortunately for the Republic, in this election we have a fighter. Donald J. Trump is fighting the technological apparatus of data mining, mechanized poll testing, and focus group message massaging with The Force of English English spoken clearly and straightforwardly – to blow up the Death Star of the Swamp.

The Swamp must be drained. Donald J. Trump will drain the swamp. The swamp strikes back against Donald J. Trump. But Donald J. Trump returns to fight back.

In 2012 we mocked Mitt Romney. Barack Obama’s campaign was calling Romney a murderer as well as assorted other insults and Romney responded with Obama is “nice”. We mocked Romney and suggested he call Barack Obama what Barack Obama is: “nasty”. This election cycle we did not have to dispense such advice because Donald J. Trump to the horror of the ruling class, called Hillary Clinton “nasty” in a nationally televised debate. Trump fights.

Trump fights and campaigns with the energy of a 17 year old. Yesterday it was five campaign speeches in five states ranging from the last one after midnight in Virginia to an early one in Minnesota. Today it is five more states (Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and Michigan) and Mike Pence in an additional five appearances in four states (Minnesota, two in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire). This team fights.

This Trump/Pence team fights and gets results. As DrudgeReport notes: FLORIDA SHOCK: TRUMP OUTPERFORMS ROMNEY BY 130,000 IN EARLY VOTING! It’s not just Florida where Trump outperforms Romney. The backstabbers in the Republican Party, the neo-cons who have helped destroy this nation and now support Hillary Clinton, assured everyone Trump would lose more than Romney. But Trump fights and he beats Romney.

But really, who cares that Trump beats Romney? Well, the neo-cons care because a Trump win means their reign of terror ends. But what matters is, can Trump beat the Obama Third Term, a.k.a. Hillary Clinton? The polls should have the star fighter about to be blown up by the Death Star… but:

The latest polls on Monday morning gave her a lead of at best four points, and mostly less than that – a wafer-thin advantage and in most cases, well within the three-point margin of error.

Trump is predicting a ballot upset on par with Britain’s shock vote to quit the European Union, or what on Sunday he called: ‘Brexit plus, plus, plus.’ [snip]

The latest polls give Clinton a narrow national lead of between three and five percentage points, but rolling averages point to a closer race, with Trump up in some swing states.

But we are told “it’s over for Trump” again. Yet Hillary Clinton has added campaign stops well into midnight tonight. If it’s over for Trump why is Hillary Clinton forced to campaign more than she planned? Why, why, why, has Hillary Clinton canceled the celebratory fireworks scheduled for Tuesday night? Um, paging Mitt Romney:

Perhaps she didn’t want to end up like Mitt Romney, who famously spent $25,000 on election night fireworks which also never happened in 2012.

If it’s over for Trump why add campaign events and cancel the celebratory fireworks? Maybe, it because Trump is a fighter fighting for change and this is a change election. Things are certainly changed in Colorado:


Republicans took the lead in early voting in Colorado at the end of the day Friday and held the advantage through the weekend despite robust Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts.

Whatever happened to that “ground game” mechanized vote getting operation ready to stomp on the Trump??? In Florida, Trump-hating Politico is “confounded”:

Of the record 6.1 million in-person early votes and absentee ballots cast, Democrats have an advantage over Republicans of only 0.5 percentage points, with each party casting roughly 39 percent of the ballots. Though it’s a lead for Democrats, they’re not going to match their 3.7-percentage-point lead in early votes by Election Day they enjoyed in 2012. And Republicans tend to outvote Democrats on Election Day in Florida.

The early and absentee ballots won’t be tallied until Election Day, but party registration is still a strong predictor of whom voters will choose. And that’s where independents — whose support for Trump or Clinton varies by the survey — make this election so confounding. [snip]

On top of that, about 25 percent of the early voting electorate so far did not vote in 2012.

“Together, these are just a big X-factor,” said Daniel A. Smith, a University of Florida political science professor who provides the best nonpartisan research on the state’s voter rolls.

We don’t know the vote choice of the independents, and I’d be very wary of predictive models showing whether they support Trump or Clinton,” said Smith, who posts numbers daily on his ElectionSmith website. “Then you have a quarter of the electorate so far with no vote history in 2012. So we know little or almost nothing about them.” [snip]

Clinton’s campaign has taken heart with the performance of Hispanic voters — who lean strongly toward Clinton in most major polls. [snip]

Michael Halle, who works on analytics for Clinton’s campaign, tweeted on Sunday afternoon that the Democratic nominee’s team likes the trends it sees among black voters. [snip]

However, whites — who strongly favor Trump — are still overperforming their registration numbers when it comes to early voting. Whites have cast 67 percent of the ballots and make up 64 percent of the rolls. [snip]

Throughout, the proportion of no-party-affiliation independent voters has continued to grow. Of them, about 60 percent are white, 22 percent Hispanic and 7 percent black — voting percentages that roughly track the demographic make-up of registered independents overall.

Trump’s campaign notes that GOP voters are casting pre-Election Day ballots at a higher rate than ever, especially compared with the election four years ago, when Obama narrowly beat Republican Mitt Romney. Then, though Democrats had a 3.7-point lead in pre-Election Day ballots, Republicans outvoted Democrats by 1.1 points on Election Day.

Republicans now make up 1.4% more of the early vote share than at this point in 2012. Democrats make up 5% less of the early vote share,” the campaign said in a statement.

“Although Republicans are now trailing in total ballots cast [by about 33,000] Republicans were trailing by over 100,000 ballots cast. This is a remarkable improvement, and erases the 74,309 votes Romney lost the state by in 2012.” [snip]

More conservative-voting Democrats and independents registered as Republicans in 2012 than liberal-leaning Republicans and independents who registered as Democrats. So about 50,000 of the lead that Democrats had in 2012 in casting early ballots likely came from those who voted for Romney. In addition, about 40,000 more Republican Election Day voters from 2012 have voted early than Democrats who have voted early. [snip]

“You can think about this in two ways,” Smith said. “If Hillary Clinton has this vaunted ground game that can turn out voters, I can see her winning on Tuesday. But if the Clinton campaign lets off the gas, they’re in trouble.”

Politico lies when they say Florida voting is “confounding”. It’s not confounding. More Trump voters who have never voted before are voting. More whites are voting. Latinos are voting in high numbers but remember that there are a lot of Trump supporting Cubans in Florida in those Latino numbers. The older Cubans who vote and remember Elian Gonzalez woke up today to a reminder of those days with the death of Janet Reno so they will now vote. The mechanized ground game won’t stop feisty Trump voters inspired by The Force of Trump clear speaking. Trump wins must win Florida.

The vaunted “ground game” of mechanized robot voter turnout efforts hasn’t helped in Colorado. The vaunted mechanized apparatus of the “ground game” hasn’t produced turnout comparable to 2012 in Florida. So what about North Carolina?:

Another dramatic turn of events is being reported out of North Carolina this afternoon: Donald Trump has jumped past all expectations in early voting!

In 2012, Romney hit Election Day down 447,000 votes, based on early ballots. He went on to win the state by 97,000 votes.

Now, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal, Trump opens Election Day down 305,000!

EDITOR’S NOTE: A poll going into this week had Trump nearing 50% in the Old North state.

Trump losing by only 305,000 is not exactly inspirational but it is a “winner” and does raise the question about the mechanized “ground game” of imperial walkers touted by Hillary2016. The mechanized “ground game” imperial walkers failed to produce in North Carolina in 2016 at the level of 2012. Hapless Mitt Romney won North Carolina even though he was further behind than Donald J. Trump is today with early voting. So what happened to the mechanized imperial walker “ground game” in North Carolina? CNN is worried. Additionally, why is Hillary Clinton adding events past midnight in North Carolina???

The mechanized “ground game” in Iowa and Ohio both of which Romney lost? Trump wins Iowa, Trump wins Ohio. That is really no longer in dispute.

New Mexico can’t possibly be swinging can it? Maybe? Nah, can’t happen.

Unreliable Rasmussen Polls has Hillary Clinton two points ahead of Trump nationally. But the poll closest to the result in 2012 has Trump ahead:

With one day to go, Donald Trump extended his lead over Hillary Clinton, 43% to 41%, according to the latest IBD/TIPP presidential tracking poll. That comes after a third bombshell from FBI Director James Comey, who announced Sunday he would not indict Clinton for her email scandal.

Trump’s two-point lead now matches his largest so far during the 20 days of polling.

Why is everything so darn close? Maybe it’s a Trump card:

Trump Trades Traditional Republicans for Swing-State Voters

In other words, Trump has shifted the map toward him where it counts most — in the swing states that decide the election.

The education gap explains a sizable amount of this movement. States with a large concentration of whites without college degrees (e.g. Iowa, Maine, Nevada, Ohio) have shifted toward Trump while Virginia (which has a high percentage of whites with a college degree) has moved toward Clinton.

The relationship here isn’t perfect and it doesn’t explain everything. [snip]

Trump seems to be benefiting from this tradeoff (shedding college-educated whites while appealing to non-college educated whites) in swing states, but his position has weakened in some redder states. or example, Trump is leading by 7.6 points in Texas, according to the RCP average, but Romney and McCain won the state by 16 points and 12 points, respectively. Trump also seems to have traded Mormons for blue-collar swing-state voters. He leads in Utah by 13 points, while Romney and McCain won the state by 48 points and 28 points, respectively.

This trade-off could be a net positive for Trump. In a close election, some extra support in swing states would be worth giving up some votes in safe states.

That month old analysis supposed the election was not close. But it is. Except when it isn’t: Trump 48% to Clinton 43.2%.

Bill Clinton had it right in 2015:

The economic stagnancy of the Obama years is to blame for plummeting life expectancy rates among white, working-class Americans, according to former president Bill Clinton, who privately told Democratic donors that lower-income whites “don’t have anything to look forward to when they get up in the morning.”

Clinton made the remarks while speaking to at a November 2015 closed-door fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in Canton, Ohio.

Echoing a theme of Republican nominee Donald Trump’s campaign, the former president expressed his concern that white, working-class Americans have been left behind over the last eight years.

Rabid Trump hater Thomas Frank who has written long diatribes against white working class values, agrees with Bill Clinton and Trump. Frank hates Trump and fears Trump tells the truth:

By 2016, as blue-collar wages continued to stagnate and inequality to worsen, the base of the Republican party had lost its appetite for pointless culture crusades: they demanded something real. And of the 17 Republican candidates for president this year, Donald Trump offered exactly that.

He railed against a rotten political establishment that did nothing for working people; he promised to defend social security and to renegotiate the trade deals that are widely blamed for the deindustrialisation of the midwest. He also scapegoated Muslims and illegal immigrants, blaming them falsely for all manner of offences. And he did it all in the bluntest terms, with a self-absorbed way of speaking that somehow captured the imagination of this unhappy era. Even his grotesque, bombastic style seemed to confirm his appeal; at the Republican convention in July, I heard him described as a “blue-collar billionaire”.

But what has also made Trumpism possible is the simultaneous evolution of the Democrats, the traditional workers’ party, over the period I have been describing. They went from being the party of Decatur to the party of Martha’s Vineyard and they did so at roughly the same time that the Republicans were sharpening their deadly image of the “liberal elite”.

And so the reversal is complete and the worst choice ever is upon us. We are invited to select between a populist demagogue and a liberal royalist, a woman whose every step on the campaign trail has been planned and debated and smoothed and arranged by powerful manipulators. The Wall Street money is with the Democrats this time, and so is Silicon Valley, and so is the media, and so is Washington, and so, it sometimes seems, is righteousness itself. Hillary Clinton appears before us all in white, the beneficiary of a saintly kind of subterfuge.

We wrote a long time ago about the prairie fire. We wrote that Trump destroyed and recreated the Republican party into a people’s party because Barack Obama destroyed the Democratic Party into a demonic totalitarian parasite. Now comes the Obama Third Term.

The good news is that the voters, in a snake pit, have Donald J. Trump as the stick to beat back the snakes. Will the American people or the snakes win? The Cubs with their bats in the overtime inning of the World Series never had a chance to win, did they?

The vipers will be destroyed.
