"Pay to play" at Hillary's State Department

How much was face time with Secretary Clinton worth? For Bahrain, it was $100,000 from the government plus another “$25,000 to $50,000” from the state oil company.[1] Get this: "Crown Prince Salman of Bahrain wanted to reach the secretary of State, he was told to call the Clinton Foundation to make an appointment." The prince had already donated $32 million to the Clinton Global Initiative -- and they were still shaking him for money! See, the prince made a rookie mistake, which is the only reason we know about his travails. Dealing with the State Department leaves a paper trail, which has been uncovered thanks to the magnificent work of Judicial Watch. What he should have done is go directly to Huma. Huma turns out to be the link between Clinton and wealthy Arab donors -- the epicenter of corruption. This level of corruption sounds less like modern times and more like the stuff Jefferson's diplomats had to deal with when they visited less civilized regions such as Paris or the Barbary Coast. Someone needs to ask Clinton which donor paid how much to cancel the Benghazi rescue mission. See "E-mail: Military Offered to Send Rescue Team to Benghazi During Attack." PeterKa (talk) 05:32, 24 August 2016 (EDT)

It's not that Hillary is insensitive to ethical concerns. She is attacking this problem, but in a manner that reminds one of Augustine ("Give me chastity and continence, but not yet.") See "Ethicists scoff at Clinton Foundation transition plan". Will she really be less greedy as a president? Let's not find out. PeterKa (talk) 00:29, 26 August 2016 (EDT)
Are you concerned that you might not be able to continue to pay your usual bribes to Hillary after she is elected president? Well, worry no more! She's already working on that: "Clintons Already Planning Next Stage of Corruption." The Wall Street Journal spells it out: "the [Clinton] foundation’s largest project, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, might continue to accept foreign government and corporate funding," PeterKa (talk) 09:41, 27 August 2016 (EDT)

Trump reverses immigration stance

We all saw this one a mile off, didn't we? "Krauthammer: Trump Immigration Stance Exactly What He Denounced Bush, Soft-Liners For Taking." The only surprise is, Why didn't Trump reverse himself right after clinching the nomination? That's what pundit after pundit predicted during the primaries. As long as the alternative is a woman who is determined to sell America out to the Gulf Arabs, he's got my vote. As Hillary's health declines, Huma will become the real president. Huma's mom wrote an article defending the 9/11 attack.[2] If either Hillary or Huma disagree, they haven't said anything. Really, you might as well vote for ISIS. PeterKa (talk) 01:07, 27 August 2016 (EDT)

FBI Director Comey put us under Roman law when he announced that Hillary could not be prosecuted because she didn't have criminal intent, or mens rea as the Romans called it. Here is another famous principle of Roman Law: Silence implies consent, qui tacet consentire videtur. PeterKa (talk) 04:59, 27 August 2016 (EDT)

Hillary on women and children

From a recent Hillary Clinton speech: "During the raid to kill bin Laden, when every second counted, our SEALs took the time to move the women and children in the compound to safely. Donald Trump may not get it, but that's what honor looks like."[3] Yeah, and Obama also ordered that all the men in the compound be shot on sight. Why was it so important to end bin Laden's life? Because Obama had already promised to close Guantanamo. Quick! Get the man another Nobel Peace Prize. I think a few Branch Davidian children may have survived the Waco raid. So Bill deserves a silver star, at least.
"Take no prisoners" was once a metaphor for extreme ruthlessness. Yet it is Obama's literal policy toward Jihadis. Don't get me wrong. I'm happy bin Laden got what was coming to him. But don't let Hillary convince you that Republicans are ruthless while Democrats have "honor." PeterKa (talk) 07:18, 28 August 2016 (EDT)

Trump comes roaring back

Just a few days ago, the pundits were telling us Trump was finished and the election was over. Now, Trump is tied in Ohio,[4] tied in the national tracking polls, and a mere three points behind in Pennsylvania, the state most likely to be the pivot of this election.[5] Judging from rally attendance, Trump's supporters are likely to turn out at a significantly higher rate than Hillary supporters. I assume the turnaround is due to the "pay-to-play" allegations against Hillary that I detail above. With legendary consultant Roger Ailes advising Trump on debate strategy, there may be more good news in the pipeline. PeterKa (talk) 02:30, 30 August 2016 (EDT)

Hillary's convention bump has dissapated, the pay for play scandal has had more light shown on it and she continues to hide from the press.
And Trump is now more disciplined and has all be erased her fundraising edge.
I hope he makes gains in the battleground states and is able to win in those states.
In addition, most of the press's lack of objectively is apparent to most people I would think. I rarely buy newspapers as I don't want to reward incompetence and malevolence towards people of goodwill (Also, why buy newspapers when you can get the news free online or at libraries for free). Conservative (talk) 18:28, 30 August 2016 (EDT)

Kerry: "The people wouldn't know what's going on."

The problem is not that Obama pays out enormous amounts in ransom or refuses to allow the Navy to defend itself from Iranian attacks. It's that the press still occasionally tells people what's going on. And that's straight from our esteemed Secretary of State Bob Kerry: "Perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover [terrorism] quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on." Like Orwell wrote in 1984, "ignorance is strength." If the American people would just mind their own business, the Jihadis could get back to work "tightening their fetters," as the Koran puts it. PeterKa (talk) 09:02, 31 August 2016 (EDT)

Trump! Trump leads in Rasmussen Poll!

Even though I wanted Trump to win over Hillary Clinton, I had some big doubts that he could win even though I did agree with Newt Gingrich that Trump was not trying to win to the best of his ability.

But now Trump appears to be focused and on message, more disciplined and closing the fundraising gap.

He's also pruning away some of his "New York attitude" and so he's nicer/humbler and subsequently gained a wider appeal. I had some big doubts that the "Trump dog" would want to learn some tricks as far as his personality/character goes, but he appears to making some changes.

The big reason I wanted Trump to win is I think "Crooked Hillary" would make an even worse president than Barack Obama. Conservative (talk) 16:07, 1 September 2016 (EDT)

I just read one of the most humorous statements I have ever seen on the internet. They were not meaning to be humorous, but nonetheless it was a humorous statement. It's from the Vox news website. Here it is: "It’s unclear exactly why Clinton is getting less popular."[6] Unclear? Crooked Hillary! The crooked Hillary meme is reaching critical mass.
"Hillary Clinton Mirrors Richard Nixon in 1972, Donald Trump Mirrors Andrew Jackson".[7] Conservative (talk) 16:23, 1 September 2016 (EDT)
  • Fivethirtyeight rates Rasmussen a C+ pollster. LA Times, rated A-, has a new survey out that shows Trump ahead by 3 points. The other current top-rated poll is Ipsos (A-). It shows Clinton ahead by 2 points one point.[8] In short, after weeks of pundits sputtering that Trump was toast, the race is all tied up. For me, the hope of seeing the drive-by media humiliated is the No. 1 reason to vote for Trump.
    I found this headline at the Huffington Post amusing: "So Donald Trump Can Criticize America, But Colin Kaepernick Can’t?" After having invested so much into the "Trump is satan" storyline, the drive-bys now wants to use their own caricature of Trump as the gold standard of acceptable behavior. I do not follow sports news and I do not know what this Kaepernick fellow might have done to merit a comparison with Trump. But I have to wonder, is he a racist of some kind? PeterKa (talk) 20:47, 1 September 2016 (EDT)

Fivethirtyeight is run by Nate Silver at the New York Times. And if memory serves, and I think it does, he totally flubbed on the issue of the rise of Trump in the Republican primaries. I believe this was pointed out by User:VargasMilan in a previous main page talk post. Conservative (talk) 21:51, 1 September 2016 (EDT)

I do try to be a realist and in 2012, Rasmussen was near the bottom of the heap as far as presidential polling accuracy. Ipsos/Reuters was number #1.[9]
Pew Research who is quoted in several of Conservapedia's atheism articles was ranked #6.
Anyways, Trump is closing the gap and I hope the clock does not run out on him. We will see what develops in terms of: the economy, the presidential debates, the Clinton Foundation scandal, Hillary Clinton's health in light of the grueling schedule that is often required in presidential elections in the home stretch, Islamic terrorism, Wikileaks revelations, ObamaCare failures and Middle East politics. Conservative (talk) 22:06, 1 September 2016 (EDT)
And the debates. There's probably a record number of people who will not decide til the October debates. And so far it appears Johnson and Stein hurt Hillary more than Trump.RobS#NeverHillary 22:23, 1 September 2016 (EDT)
  • Nate Silver makes lots of predictions, and some will be wrong. You only listen to people who never make mistakes? Silver doesn't work for the New York Times anymore. He's at ESPN. PeterKa (talk) 03:56, 2 September 2016 (EDT)
Post Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, the USA has drifted more to the left because much of the world is to the left of the USA politically. As a result, GOP candidates have a tougher and tougher electoral map to tackle. Hillary has this built in advantage.
At the same time, Hillary Clinton is a weak candidate. Even if she wins, she may be a one term. However, Anne Coulter thinks Clinton will attempt to flood the USA with even more immigrants plus push amnestry though and if the GOP doesn't win in 2016, they may never win again. But who knows, maybe Trump-Breitbart News-Roger Ailes may launch a news network to the right of Fox News which becomes more popular than Fox News (Some leftist are worried about this). If Trump runs again in 2020 (since he is in excellent health now), that could help his campaign.
I have my doubts about Coulter's prediction as it usually takes at least 3-5 years to become a citizen of the USA even if you get your green card (permanent residency). My guess is that any amnesty would be a political compromise and go into effect slowly. And amnesty could be hard to push through in the USA's present day polarized/gridlocked politics.
I think it is tough to make 2016 presidential predictions at this point due to the fact that Hillary is a weak candidate. Conservative (talk) 18:22, 5 September 2016 (EDT)
The three most recent A-rated polls are Ipsos (Clinton +1), IBD/TPP (tie) and Fox (Clinton +2).[10] Trump does better in polls that ask about Johnson. The A-rated pollsters do this, but many less carefully done polls just ask about Trump and Hillary. A lot of Blacks turned out to vote for Obama in 2008 and 2012. But otherwise Republican turnout is higher, so you can add 2.5 points to Trump's numbers on that basis. Then there's the "Trump effect." Trump's rallies are so much better attended that Hillary has stopped holding rallies to avoid being embarrassed. Finally, if Ailes is coaching Trump on debates, we can anticipate that his performance will improve in that area. PeterKa (talk) 06:50, 6 September 2016 (EDT)

Proof that Bill Clinton is a racist

Bill Clinton used the slogan, "Make America great again" back in 2008. Now he admits that this was racist and a fraud on the American people.[11] “Saying I’d like to Make America Great again is like me saying I’d like to be 20 again." Obamanomics is the new normal. The Clintons have no solution, so get used to it. PeterKa (talk) 02:50, 8 September 2016 (EDT)

No, it wasn't just a one time thing. "WATCH: Four Times Bill Clinton Promised to Make America Great Again. If I can believe what I am seeing in this video, he both inhaled and exhaled. PeterKa (talk) 03:03, 8 September 2016 (EDT)
I've watched over and over again this 'proud to be a Goldwater girl speech' by Hillary in 1993. But guess what? it begins with the fear-mongering and scare tactics that were second nature to the Man From Hope, "...if this country is gonna make it...". RobS#NeverHillary 01:36, 10 September 2016 (EDT)

Wikileaks refutes Clinton/FBI lies

Hillary's favorite lie these days is that none of the email on her private server was marked classified. FBI Director Comey almost agreed, but not quite. He told us that a very small number of her messages were marked "(C)" for classified. Wikileaks has busted these lies and come up with thousands of examples.[12] It seems the FBI didn't bother to analyze email that was "only" confidential. This is the lowest level of classification, but Private Manning is in prison for leaking this type of material. PeterKa (talk) 03:56, 8 September 2016 (EDT)

Duh, the most obvious thing: she was Secretary of State. Anything she wrote was classified. Sheesh, anything that came out any oriface was automatically classified, RobS#NeverHillary 01:26, 10 September 2016 (EDT)

Chinese disrespect Obama

Obama's reaction to Iranian attacks on U.S. naval ships has shown the world that the man is a joke. Now the Chinese disrespect him at the G20 summit. Here's Krauthammer: "Incident in Hangzhou." I guess we should have seen this coming a long time ago. When Obama started bowing to royalty -- not to mention the mayor of Tampa -- it was already obvious that diplomacy was not really his thing. After Mexico City, Trump is the one who looks presidential these days.PeterKa (talk) 14:58, 9 September 2016 (EDT)

Guess who's a woman

At The Atlantic, Peter Beinart has come out with a much discussed article accusing Hillary Clinton being a woman: "Fear of a Female President." Although she is a "highly conventional presidential candidate" in most ways, one detail gives her away: "The percentage of Americans who hold a “strongly unfavorable” view of her substantially exceeds the percentage for any other Democratic nominee since 1980." The logical conclusion is that she must be a woman. For myself, I try not to notice invidious distinctions of this kind. Dividing humanity serves only to lessen each and every one of us. I won't get into the "is she or isn't she" question. What I want to know is, Where was Beinart during the primaries? His keen observational skills could have prevented the Democrats from making this costly mistake. Here is a reply at NR: "Peter Beinart Can’t Imagine Any Reason But Sexism For Disliking Hillary Clinton." PeterKa (talk) 23:57, 9 September 2016 (EDT)

We're just a nation of bigots, I guess. Thank God for the liberal media to tell us that. RobS#NeverHillary 01:16, 10 September 2016 (EDT)
Of the scores of reasons for people to hate her, it clearly must be sexism--what else? Deceit? Breaching security? Giving comfort and aid to our enemies? Racism? Betraying U.S. representatives under attack (in Benghazi)? Pushing oppressive socialism? Other treasonous acts? Of course not! IT'S JUST BECAUSE SHE'S A WOMAN!!!
If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

...This is why I rarely engage in such conversation--it gets me all riled up. I'll get off my soap box now. --David B (TALK) 03:12, 10 September 2016 (EDT)
  • It seems that Beinart is a stalking horse for Clinton herself, who followed up by calling Trump supporters, "deplorable...racist, sexist, xenophobic, Islamophobic - you name it".[13] If Democrats actually believed any of this, it would have come up in the primaries. But I don't recall any commentary along the lines of, "It might be better if we didn't nominate a woman. It could provoke a backlash." Up to now, being a woman was touted as Hillary's greatness asset. Suddenly, it's a reason to feel sorry for her. It's all about creating a useful tool to bash opposition with. Global warming is the same way. It's a reason to bash non-believers, but not a reason to ding Obama's enormous motorcades or personal use of the fuel-inefficient Air Force One. PeterKa (talk) 10:57, 11 September 2016 (EDT)
    • Now that Hillary has identified the American voter as the problem, the next logical step is to see if we can be replaced by refugees from Latin America and the Mideast. They can do the voting that Americans just won't do. Wouldn't it be simpler if Hillary could leave us alone and move to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, or some other country where people appreciate her more? PeterKa (talk) 00:56, 12 September 2016 (EDT)
Sounds about right. I do wish that all those who hate America so much would just go to a different country they like more, instead of trashing this one. Also, you can't forget about the illegal Mexican immigrants being used to substitute for Americans. Some conservative election polling moderators have observed buses of Mexicans being brought in, one bus after another, with few, if any, having photo ID. Luckily, "Anti-discrimination" laws allow them to vote anyway, as I'm sure you already know. Ick! Before I melt down, maybe I'll go write a riveting article on paperclips. --David B (TALK) 21:54, 12 September 2016 (EDT)

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Cinton has another medical episode at 9/11 ceremony. Video. RobS#NeverHillary 12:40, 11 September 2016 (EDT)

I still feel like this could go sideways. Rather than potentially seeing her as "unfit," ignorant voters might give her sympathy votes, due to her alleged illness. After all, she's just a suffering, persecuted woman, worn ragged by the patriarchal system. Boo-hoo! The least we can do is give the poor dear our votes... --David B (TALK) 22:50, 12 September 2016 (EDT)
Nearly every election has a point in time in the days and weeks leading up to it where, retrospectively, people say that was the moment the election was decided. We may have just seen it, although there still is so much time left. It is up to Trump now to build trust with the American people. Hillary's supporters, who never were that enthusiastic and supported her grudgingly, have no trust or confidence in her anymore. A week ago, the election was Hillary's to loose; as of now it is Trump's to loose. She cannot afford another episode in her deteriorating condition, which seem to be coming in greater frequency.RobS#NeverHillary 23:40, 12 September 2016 (EDT)
Perhaps so--I hope that's true. I do find in encouraging that a few of my liberal (Sanders supporting) friends and disgusted with Hillary, and are thinking of just refusing to vote at all. We'll see in November, I guess. --David B (TALK) 23:49, 12 September 2016 (EDT)

What I find interesting, for 30 years now since Hillarycare Democrats have lectured us on the need for universal healthcare and mandatory coversge because young people in their 20s are so foolish, they think they are invincible and will live forever and don t realize in their senior years they are mere mortals and will need more intensive, costly care. Yet Hillary, who began preaching this 30 years ago, has displayed throughout what is known of her medical history, and we see and hear daily on the campaign trail, is an atttude of a juvenile with emotionally arrested development who wanted to grow up to be the first woman president, and thinks she's invincible at the age of 68 and can't accept the reality of her own mortality.
I have nothing but compassion for her at this point. Don't lock her up, get her the intensive care she needs.RobS#NeverHillary 00:10, 13 September 2016 (EDT)

Is it time to put together a Trump Transition Team?

You know Team Clinton is in deep trouble when you see headlines like this one: "Clinton raising money on media 'bias,' a new rallying cry on the left." Didn't we all just see how the media covered up her health problems?
So what do the polls say? The king of the national polls is the Google Consumer Surveys with nearly 23,000 respondents. It gives Clinton a one point lead.[14] Fivethirtyeight puts Clinton 1.6 points ahead in the "tipping point" state of Florida.[15] Trump's Florida rallies blow Hillary's away with ten times the attendance.[16] Most polls model turnout based on the 2008 and 2012 exit polls, when Black voters got excited about Obama. One of the few polls with a more realistic turnout model is CNN/ORC, which shows Trump two points ahead.[17] PeterKa (talk) 08:33, 12 September 2016 (EDT)

Here's what we got so far:
  • Chief of Staff - Chris Christie
  • Secretary of State - Newt Gingrich
  • National Security Adviser - Mike Flynn
  • Rudy Guiliani - Homeland Security
  • Ted Cruz - Attorney General

RobS#NeverHillary 11:18, 12 September 2016 (EDT)

  • I doubt that Gingrich would work out as a secretary of state. My choice for the job is John Bolton. PeterKa (talk) 18:07, 15 September 2016 (EDT)
Gingrich wants the job. There's the Director of National Intelligence, the next most important national security post. DNI requires a guy with extensive Executive branch experience which Bolton has. Gingrich has none.RobS#NeverHillary 21:56, 15 September 2016 (EDT)
Gingrich's big accomplishment was balancing the federal budget. That would suggest he might make a good director for the Office of Management and Budget. PeterKa (talk) 01:30, 17 September 2016 (EDT)

"Frequently"

The latest Hillary health revelation is that she faints "frequently," according to Bill.[18] This is in addition to the pneumonia issue. It's obviously true, even though Bill immediately walked it back. She has been mysteriously out of public view for months -- and suddenly it's clear why. A Clinton telling the truth was such a shock that CBS deleted this section from the televised version of the interview. A candidate's health has always been a huge factor in a presidential election. The fact that Kennedy looked healthier than Nixon in their televised debate loomed large in the 1960 election. Dole never overcame the torrent of late night jokes about how old he was. Now the media tells us that we must elected this "head on a stick" or we're a bunch of sexists. This headline may look like a joke, but it represents Eleanor Clift's for-real opinion: "Hillary Clinton Isn’t Sick. You Are.." Once liberals make it through this type of denial, the Democratic National Committee will have to pick a replacement. I assume Obama will tell them what to do. We could be back to Biden vs Warren. PeterKa (talk) 11:45, 14 September 2016 (EDT)

There is no pneumonia. And in the remote chance there is, all it will do is weaken and complicate her ability to cope with the underlying nuerological condition (most likely Stage 3 Parkinson's).
This has already forced Hillary into making her closing arguments 8 weeks in advance with the added excuse she may not return to the campaign trail til late October. IOW, they want to keep her cloistered, ala Brezhnev and Andropov.RobS#NeverHillary 11:39, 15 September 2016 (EDT)
None of headlines on CNN today relate to Hillary's health. Today's top story: Obama may have been born in America.[19] How long can they avoid dealing with the obvious? Well, they didn't report Hillary's 1998 "life-threatening" blood clot until 2012. At that rate, it could take until 2030 before we get some straight talk. Obama presumably knows that her collapse is due to advanced Parkinson's rather than pneumonia. Yet he's on the campaign trail telling us that she, "Has more qualifications than any candidate in history." (See "Obama: 'I really, really, really want to elect Hillary Clinton') She told the FBI that she can hardly remember anything due the concussion and blood clots. If it's not true, she's a criminal. PeterKa (talk) 03:45, 16 September 2016 (EDT)
Perhaps I misspoke. If it is pnuemonia, it is Aspiratiion pnuemonia, a complication of Stage 3 Parkinson's and the leading cause if death in Parkinson's suffererrs. The nuerologicsl disorder causes difficulty in swallowing, food and liquids get caught in the windpipe, and eventually the lung. RobS#NeverHillary 12:30, 16 September 2016 (EDT)
The Atlantic has a full-length article on all the "wild speculation" concerning Hillary's health.[20] The amazing part is that they don't even mention Parkinson's! Hillary lies, changes her story, and then lies some more. You don't buy today's official line? What are you, some kind of conspiracy theorist? When they can no longer hide it, we'll start hearing about how Hillary "powered through" Parkinson's because "that's what women do." I tell you, the MSM has become a bad joke.

Steph Curry

It seems he can reconcile his Christian faith and support Hillary Clinton for president. [21] In addition, he says he will 'most likely' stand for the National Anthem. Huge disappointment and I expected much better. --Jpatt 07:12, 15 September 2016 (EDT)

Curry's generally been non-political, but Hillary is leading among African-Americans regardless of how religious they are, so I don't know that it's particularly surprising he'd support her over Trump. Why are you disappointed he'll likely stand for the National Anthem, though?--Whizkid (talk) 00:07, 16 September 2016 (EDT)
Democrats have traditional led with black Americans. That wasn't the point. Somebody who is considered a strong Christ follower doesn't endorse, certainly not publicly, a corrupt lying abortion loving sinner. Likely is not a full-throated endorsement of American patriotism. Would you like to hear that our military will defend our nation if attacked or would you be ok if they said they'll likely defend us? It's almost a maybe and it doesn't sit well. --Jpatt 21:47, 16 September 2016 (EDT)
Except it's not like Trump is any different. Trump was pro-choice, even saying he wouldn't ban partial birth abortion, until he decided he was going to run for president as a Republican, he's publicly boasted about buying politicians, and he lies all the time. If Christians can manage to endorse Trump, in spite of his record and in spite of a lot of the frankly un-Christian things he's said and believed in, they can endorse Hillary too. --Whizkid (talk) 12:38, 17 September 2016 (EDT)
When Trump brought up the birth certificate issue in 2011, he was being a good Hillary supporter and paving the way for a 2012 Hillary/Obama rematch that never happened. The Dems went berserk over this issue; It forced him to become a Republican. We need to see Trump's tax returns, but not Obama's birth certificate? Somehow that position makes sense in MSM-land. Since Trump hired Roger Ailes a few weeks ago, he has been running as a conventional Republican. The new strategy has sent his poll numbers soaring, so perhaps he has found his groove. PeterKa (talk) 19:52, 17 September 2016 (EDT)
It's an apples and oranges argument Whiz. What Trump said in the past and what he says today. He lies all the time?? No person is a perfect angel. Lies all the time is just slinging it out there whereas Hillary has a extensive résumé of lies. The vast majority of Christians reject Hillary for reasons I have mentioned. Hillary is beyond un-Christian. You can be wrong once and a while, it's not so bad.--Jpatt 21:04, 17 September 2016 (EDT)

Gen. Colin Powell on Hillary Clinton

From Colin Powell's hacked emails:

  • "You know, I'd rather not have to vote for her, although she is a friend I respect. She's a 70-year-old person, long track record.

Hillary needs a bigger basket

Reality is just beginning to intruded into mainstream medialand. Here is Nate Silver: "Election Update: Democrats Should Panic … If The Polls Still Look Like This In A Week." Ha! Ha! and more Ha! The USC/LAT poll showed Trump and Hillary tied as recently as September 12. Now Trump is 6.4 points ahead nationally.[24] The USC/LAT poll asks respondents various questions to gauge turnout. The other major pollsters build turnout models based on exit polls conducted in past elections, so they miss the uniqueness of this cycle. No longer swing states, Florida and Ohio are firmly in the Trump column. That means the battleground has shifted to Pennsylvannia. Hillary is so far behind among independents that we get headlines like this: "Independent Voters Are Overrated." If Democrats think the future is theirs, note that Hillary is only 2.1 points ahead in the 18-34 age group, according to USC/LAT. That makes the Millenials the most conservative generation in a very long time. This election is going to be a tsunami. PeterKa (talk) 00:16, 17 September 2016 (EDT)

I misread the LA Times poll. Trump is actually 8.4 points ahead among 18-34 year olds. That's even bigger than his lead among oldsters. Fancy that: The young prefer to be American rather than Muslim. Trump's overall national lead has increased to 6.7 points. This can no longer be dismissed as a short-term response to Hillary's "bad weekend." It's a game changer. PeterKa (talk) 09:15, 18 September 2016 (EDT)
I read that maybe 3% of the population won't publicly say they'll for vote Trump but are going to. More than enough to cause a landslide. --Jpatt 10:44, 18 September 2016 (EDT)
There is way more than 3% who for the better part of a decade now, if they dared exercise their First Amendment right to criticize either Barack Obama's policies, or Hillary Clinton's policy positions, have been called bigots. So of course they'll keep their mouths shut til the election booth.RobS#NeverHillary 11:20, 18 September 2016 (EDT)
The LAT survey tries to avoid that problem by using scales rather than asking respondents to give binary yes/no answers. The "shy Trump voter" issue could explain why Trump does better in the LAT survey than in other surveys. PeterKa (talk) 11:39, 18 September 2016 (EDT)
There is almost always a 4-5 pt. hidden conservative vote in sny election -- a group smong Trump's weakest supporters. That group could be as high ad 8% right now. The 'shy Trump voters' are probably very strong among moderates and undecideds.
The questions also is crossover and turnout. While several high profile conservatives express their intention to crossover, we don't see it at the grassroots. A few may be likely to stay home than crossover. Hillary has the same problem; in talking to people, I am amazed at the demographic profile of traditional Democrats I meet here in New Mexico who very quietly say they intend to vote for Trump - blacks and Native Americans included. Turnout is the key. Hillary does not have 90% of the African American vote - this is why she's hammering birtherism so hard at the moment - still trying to claim that the voter's concern about fraud & constitutionality is racist. Go ahead, I say, hang yourself, bitch. RobS#NeverHillary 13:10, 18 September 2016 (EDT)

Maybe the radical Islamacists are spoiling for a fight with the West and want a anti-Islam hardliner like Trump to be elected rather than Hillary Clinton.
On the other hand, maybe they are feeling the pressure of the West clamping down on them.
Alternatively, maybe ISIS is going after the weak targets and with the Obama Administration bringing in a lot of Muslim immigrants into the USA, they could see the USA as a weak target. It's possible that France is on high alert and they see the USA as being more complacent at this time.
It's tough to say.
Why do you think the attacks against America are happening now? Conservative (talk) 19:08, 18 September 2016 (EDT)
Why now? De Blasio dismantled the NYPD's anti-terrorism program about a year ago. Comey's FBI has plenty of resources, but is too politically correct to take action against potential jihadis. So they can. That's all the reason they need. This is a long war. It began when Thomas Jefferson hit the Barbary pirates. It ends when the U.S. Marines enter the Grand Mosque in Mecca, roast pork, and pop open some beers. PeterKa (talk) 21:21, 18 September 2016 (EDT)
Ok, ignore the attack. And remember next time you walk into a shopping mall, you're protected. They have security guards there. RobS#NeverHillary 00:17, 19 September 2016 (EDT)

Skittles

The Donald Trump Jr./Skittles/Nazi bruhaha is at this hour the Internet's top trending meme, dominating Memeorandum. See "Nazi Who Originated Donald Trump Jr.’s Skittles Analogy Was Hanged at Nuremberg", "Trump Jr’s ‘Skittles’ tweet is based on two different white supremacist memes — and Nazi propaganda", and literally hundreds of similar stories. Is any further proof required that liberals are idiots? Who hasn't heard, "One bad apple spoils the whole barrel"? It's an analogy used by people of all political stripes. Suppose Chelsea described her mother as "healthy as a horse." Suppose further that it is discovered that a minor Nazi official once used a similar analogy about his mother. What made the Nazis notorious is that they murdered Jews, not that they made bad analogies. PeterKa (talk) 22:52, 20 September 2016 (EDT)

Just when you thought the story couldn't get any sillier: "Donald Trump Jr.’s Skittles Comparison Used to Be a Feminist Meme." Here is the feminist version: "You say not all men are monsters? Imagine a bowl of M&Ms. 10% of them are poisoned. Go ahead. Eat a handful." PeterKa (talk) 06:01, 21 September 2016 (EDT)

U.S. military backs Trump

A Military Times poll shows that 37.6 percent of U.S. troops back Trump, compared to 36.5 percent for Johnson, and 16.3 percent for Clinton.[29] PeterKa (talk) 01:40, 22 September 2016 (EDT)

Millennials switch back to Hillary

Those volatile Millennials have switched back to Hillary by a margin of 44-39, according to the Daybreak poll by the LA Times. That cuts Trump's overall lead to 2.4 points. Trump's lead among those over 65, who probably have a better understanding of Parkinson's, is actually increasing. No, Millennials, she won't get better. It only gets worse. She bobbed her head over four hundred times when Bernie endorsed her.[30] In a year or two, she could be a vegetable. Then who runs the country? Bill? Blumenthal? Huma? PeterKa (talk) 07:32, 22 September 2016 (EDT)

If it's of any consolation, this millennial won't be swayed to Hillary Clinton, even without her having Parkinsons (points to self). Pokeria1 (talk) 07:37, 22 September 2016 (EDT)
Parkinson's disease is hard to diagnose. I think it is premature to say she has Parkinson's disease. Perhaps, she may have post traumatic concussion syndrome, but without detailed medical records indicating how she was examined after her concussion and the medical followup documentation, it is speculation. The problem for Hillary as far as her health is that she a reputation for lacking transparency. Conservative (talk) 14:56, 23 September 2016 (EDT)
She has abnormal eye movements, which is definately not due to pneumonia. Here is the latest: "Clinton's eyes — a window into her health issues." Ted Noel's video convinced me she has Parkinson's -- although this video claims he's full of it. PeterKa (talk) 15:44, 23 September 2016 (EDT)

Riots are the new normal in Obama's America

Seventy percent of the rioters arrested in Charlotte aren't even local residents: "Judge Jeanine on Charlotte: 'Dems Need This Narrative, It's All About the Election'Judge Jeanine on Charlotte: '." It's a barbarian invasion as roving bands of BLM supporters go on razzias. Your town could be next. To Obama, burning down a city is just another way of getting out the black vote. The insurance companies should bill the Clinton campaign. PeterKa (talk) 16:25, 23 September 2016 (EDT)

I don't think there's any relationship betwen BLM & the Clinton campaign, and let's not make that mistake. BLM was formed because of the New Jim Crow of the Clintons. Trump is their only hope. RobS#NeverHillary 16:48, 23 September 2016 (EDT)
BLM is a Soros project. The leaders of the group have only the opinions that they are paid to have by a billioniare white dude. I hope the Trump DOJ brings them up on racketeering charges. Glenn Reynolds lost his Twitter account for disrespecting the rioters in Charlotte.[31] Notice that it's never the rioters who are deplorable, but only those who object to riots. Or did I miss the pro-Trump riots of 2016? PeterKa (talk) 08:25, 24 September 2016 (EDT)
Don't take the bait. This is obviously an Obama organized GOTV project for Hillary, but Trump right now stands to win more black votes than any Republican has in a lifetime and break the monolith. If anything, Republicans need to hijack Obama's initiative and be sympathetic, or shut up. RobS#NeverHillary 16:33, 24 September 2016 (EDT)
If you're a community organizer, organizing nationwide riots has got to be the ne plus ultra. Obama's mother taught him of the glories of 1968 and he wants to be a part of it. When he proclaimed that Trayvon Martin looked like his son back in 2012, he was already blowing the riot dog whistle. If Obamacare was about topping Bill Clinton, the riots are about topping Martin Luther King. The 1968 riots gave us the Nixon presidency, so the Dems may want to think again before following Obama over this cliff. PeterKa (talk) 18:22, 24 September 2016 (EDT)
Riots are one issue. Race relations are another. Which is more important? Which sould Republicans this very instant be more focused on and discussing?RobS#NeverHillary 01:51, 25 September 2016 (EDT)
I don't think people who support anti-white riots (or anti-police riots) are a potential Republican constituency. It's not like the black community was a tinder box ready to ignite. Obama, Soros, Holder, and the MSM had to push this issue for four or five years before they got results. In the 1980s and 1990s, the Congressional Black Caucus led the charge for mandatory minimum sentencing. At that time, it was a way to deal with the crack epidemic. PeterKa (talk) 03:00, 25 September 2016 (EDT)
ok. You answered my question. Don't be surprised or come crying when you are called a racist scum. 03:03, 25 September 2016 (EDT)
If Hillary wins, BLM supporters will conclude that riots work. In Alinskyite terms, they aren't a drag like stuffing envelopes or making cold calls. Every white person in America will be called racist scum and worse before its over. PeterKa (talk) 09:08, 25 September 2016 (EDT)
You just don't seem to be hearing what I'm saying: The rioters can be seen as rioting AGAINST Hillary Clinton. Best to just shut up about this issue until you educate yourself about what is being said on African-American internet forums. You are only doing damage to the Republican party with the track you are pursuing.RobS#NeverHillary 15:00, 25 September 2016 (EDT)
Trump's lead over Hillary has jumped from 1.4 points to 4.1 points, according to the LA Times tracking poll. I interpret that as a response to the Charlotte riots. The LA Times tries to factor in likely turnout. In other words, the shift could represent Trump supporters expressing greater determination to vote rather than anyone's opinion being flipped. So if the riots are a tactic to increase black turnout for Hillary, they aren't working. That probably doesn't matter to Obama -- His policies are always about himself. The various recent terrorist incidents, including the New York/New Jersey bombings, had no noticeable effect on the polls. The riots are clearly Trump's best issue yet. PeterKa (talk) 19:59, 25 September 2016 (EDT)

The great debate

Trump's lead in the national polls dipped after the debate, but today he's four points ahead of Hillary once again.[32] In the debate's most dramatic moment, Hillary ambushed Trump with a sob story about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado. It turns out that Machado once threatened to kill a Venezuelan judge and drove a getaway car for her boyfriend after a murder attempt.[33] Ah, those hot-headed Latin gals. Clinton financed an advertising campaign to find Trump victims. David Brock is offerring reward money. This is the best they could come up with?
Hillary successfully baited Trump with allegations about old lawsuits and whatnot. He needs to focus on issues that help him: immigration, the BLM riots, and the need to profile potential terrorists. The next time a moderator tries to make it a three way, we need to hear, "Ex-CUSE me, but I believe the audience is tuning in to listen to me and not to you."
