November can’t come soon enough, either we have Trump or Clinton. As you remember from my way earlier posts, I was just fine with eithe rTrump or Cruz as long we get CROOKED HILLARY IN PRISON rather than the White House.ReplyDelete
Cruz was never going to endorse Trump, and Trump knew it. He read the speech before hand and allowed him to air it out. Trump didn’t stop it, didn’t even respond to anything Cruz said in his speech. Cruz was absolutely RIGHT in what he said. “Vote your conscience” is what we all should be doing. Trump exercised some leadership qualities I didn’t think he had by allowing Cruz a platform to air it out. Its not pretty, its downright ugly sometimes.
But Trump took the high ground away from Cruz by letting him decide on national TV where his conscience and principles are. And Cruz blew it, and he blew away his whole future in Republican politics along wih it.
Pray for our nation, pray that Trump wins or its truly over

After the Gawd awful speech Thursday, a speech filled with half truths, lies, dark fear, and fury I shook my head in disbelief.

Immediately following GOP nominee Donald Trump’s electrifying Republican National Convention (RNC) speech, not even CNN could deny that the public was loving it.
In four polls taken immediately after Trump’s speech, viewers told CNN what they really thought.
For viewers, a whopping 57 percent said they had a “very positive” reaction to the speech, while only 24 percent said the speech had a “negative effect.”
Even more incredible for Trump was that 73 percent of viewers said the policies proposed in the speech would move the country in the “right direction,” with only 24 percent saying otherwise.
The speech left 56 percent of viewers saying they are “more likely” to vote for Trump....
YES! But if you listen to the ENEMEDIA's version of events –– and that certainly includes FOX now –– you would think that Mr. Trump was generating a reaction identical to the moronic anti-Turmp, anti-Conservative, anti-Libertarian, anti-American trolls who generate a veritable explosion of vile sentiment at their own blogs, then invade this and other internet loci every chance they get to heckle, badger, leave "graffiti," post obscene insults and the crudest form of GUTTER leftist propaganda.Delete

We now know who the next VP will be, Time Kaine.ReplyDelete
Let the vetting begin.
I have heard from very reliable sources that Tim Kaine likes to wear women's underwear, He also claims to be a Christian, and no doubt thinks the earth is only 6000 years old, almost as old as Hillary. Hillary's teeth alone have been carbon dated at 8000 years old, but Kaine simply scoffs as such science. Tim also believes that abortion is murder, but is OK with the Dim platform of murder on demand. In other words, Tim has no real conviction about right and wrong, a perfect from the Hilldadog..

You have a point, but we've HEARD all that stuff hundreds of times over.Delete
In MY opinion the most outrageous thing about the enemedia is the obviously biased, agenda-driven, flagrantly dishonest way they've repeatedly mischaracterized and misrepresented Mr. Trump and the entire GOP convention, which –– except for the crass, low-class, spiritually and intellectually bankrupt, markedly inferior, frankly DISGUSTING so-called M-U-S-I-C –– had much to recommend it.
Many good, honest people expressing thoughts and feelings the country needs to hear, and many excellent speeches from the principles involved.
The relentless iteration of solely NEGATIVE thoughts, and fabricated, utterly false "observations," most of which sounded as though the "reporters," "pundits," and "witnesses" involved hadn't been anywhere near Cleveland has been infuriating and depressing to those us who took the time to watch and listen carefully to all four days of the convention.
The "reportage" from the enemedia –– and that now includes FOX –– has sounded as though it came from an alternate Universe –– certainly not the one WE inhabit.
Like Mr.Trump I believe that "Freedom of Speech" should NOT include the right to LIE or MISLEAD with the crafty, manipulative use of "selected" FACTS.
That's not very progressive, Mr. FT! At least not for ME and MY goals!Delete
In MY opinion, Stanley, no one has any "right" to EXPRESS an opinion, if he knows nothing about the subject at hand. He may ask QUESTIONS of course, –– provided e's willing to listen to the answers he gets –– but he may not make the all-too-common error of posing as an "expert" when in fact he is an absolute DUNCE.Delete
At any rate, I am CERTAINLY anti-Progressive. That des NOT mean, however, that I am anti-PROGRESS, which is what the Left would have you believe.
If we must attach labels, you may call me a STABILIZATIONIST. That means I am not a REVOLUTIONARY, an ACTIVIST or a REACTIONARY.
I am militantly opposed to Change for the Sake of Change, militantly opposed to Utopian Dreams that inevitably turn into Dystopia Nightmares.
I would not be an EQUALIZER. My hope is to be a STABILIZER.
You can always tell the difference between a wise man and a fool by the questions he asks, or the silence that follows, an expression of another's "opinion."

The path we take, matters little...Delete
...no promise of eternal harmony in the future within some vast organic whole will make us accept is the use of human beings as mere means--the doctoring of them until they are made to do what they do, not for the sake of the purposes which are their purposes, fulfilment of hopes which however foolish or desperate are at least their own, but for reasons which only we, the manipulators, who freely twist them for our purposes, can understand. What horrifies one about Soviet or Nazi practice is not merely the suffering and the cruelty, since although that is bad enough, it is something which history has produced too often, and to ignore its apparent inevitability is perhaps real Utopianism--no; what turns one inside out, and is indescribable, is the spectacle of one set of persons who so tamper and "get at" others that the others do their will without knowing what they are doing; and in this lose their status as free human beings, indeed as human beings at all. - Isaiah Berlin, "Letter to George Kennan" (2/13/51)

I find it odd that the media is now criticizing Trump's acceptance speech as being too pessimistic and frightening. This after the media has spent so much time terrorizing everyone over the last few years that there's this bogeyman "terrorist" lurking behind the next corner or under your bed intent on lopping off your head.ReplyDelete
Now Trump asserts he's the only one that can solve the problem. I wish him well. If he can make a start at solving some of the world's problems without losing his head in the meantime, that would certainly be a good thing. But where do you start?
If he can follow through on "making America great again" perhaps it wouldn't be too much of a stretch for one the expect some credible ideas on where this would start.
Would a "Great Nation" not be one that has sovereign control of its financial system and control of the issuance of its currency? If so what would Mr. Trump suggest as a decent starting point in this regard?
Is it realistic to expect Mr. Trump to probe the sordid history of the Federal Reserve and its financial monopoly ... including that a "market" exists when the most fundamental item of an economy—Interest Rates—are set by a panel of "shareholders" and that affect every other market in the world.
If Trump gets to that point things will get very interesting ...
For certain Faux News (as well as others) have been terrorising everyone for quite some time.ReplyDelete
Trump has is a master at creating fear and resentment. For over a year the lame brain Faux News has given him a Carte Blanche to spew his BS.
Baseless assertions motivated by deep prejudice, sheer spite, unbridled ignorance and ill will –– like everything else YOU have tried to post here.

Bernie Sanders Campaign Chief Says Someone Must Be 'Accountable' for What DNC Emails Showed. Didn't they know what sort of crook they were dealing with?ReplyDelete
JUST BREAKING: DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz Won’t Speak at Convention Following Wikileaks FalloutReplyDelete
Wikileaks released nearly 20,000 hacked emails it says are from the accounts of Democratic National Committee officials on Friday. The documents were released just days before the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia
The hacked emails revealed the DNC’s hatred for Bernie Sanders and his movement.
One email talks about how DNC moles had infiltrated the Bernie campaign.
The head of the Democratic National Committee will not speak at the party’s convention next week, a decision reached by party officials Saturday after emails surfaced that raised questions about the committee’s impartiality during the Democratic primary.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose stewardship of the DNC has been under fire through most of the presidential primary process, will not have a major speaking role in an effort “to keep the peace” in the party, a Democrat familiar with the decision said. The revelation comes following the release of nearly 20,000 emails.
One email appears to show DNC staffers asking how they can reference Bernie Sanders’ faith to weaken him in the eyes of Southern voters. Another seems to depict an attorney advising the committee on how to defend Hillary Clinton against an accusation by the Sanders campaign of not living up to a joint fundraising agreement.
Wasserman Schultz is expected to gavel the convention in and out, but not speak in the wake of the controversy surrounding the leaked emails.

Whatever folks think or thought about George Bush, he did have a more comprehensive strategy to keep Islamists at bay, which included warfare.

Of course a that litt;e DemoRAT piece of crap Chris Matthews had to make a truly stupid comment! About Ms. Steven's spech at the Republican Convention...ReplyDelete
Chris Matthews immediately reacted to the RNC speech delivered by the Mother of one of the Benghazi victims by saying the GOP “ruined their evening” with that speech. Matthews tore into “this gross accusation that somehow Hillary Clinton had anything to do with the death of Chris Stevens” and the three other victims. He didn’t understand why the GOP “would choose to put this on primetime television” and said it’s just “not true” no matter what Smith’s personal feelings are. But however we ALL thonw about Good ole Chris Matthews and his typicial LIES and SPINNING, and that he is an expert on LIES and SPINNING, and a well known LIAR and SPINNER himself.
And further, these Liberals who are bitching about it, don't even KNOW what a political PAWN is! But I'll tell you what it is. Some one who says, " IF I HAD A SON, HE'D LOOK JUST LIKE TRAYVON" Thats what!
First you insult the Mother of a BRAVE AMERICAN that died carrying out Hillary’s plan, and then claim that his Mother was a Political Pawn!
I wonder if Chris Matthews or/and you Libs felt that same way about Cindy Sheehan?
THE FOLLOWING SERIES of COMMENTS APPEARED at the WRING POST TODAY. WE ARE MOVING THEM HERE, WHICH WHERE THEY PROPERLY BELONGReplyDelete
TOMJuly 24, 2016 at 6:58 AM
Read Michael Moore's recent op-ed you should. He lays out his reasons why Trump will win the election. I agree with Moore's reasons and as much as the idea disgusts me, I think Trump can/will win the election. I will get no satisfaction out of saying I told you so. I have watched Americans vote for bigots, racists, crooks, liars, and worse for president. A Trump win will not surprise me, just depress me.
I can think of worse people who have already been president, of course, we don't know just how bad Trump could get. There are worse things than being a racist, vulgar, tyrant, and leader of the United States.
Trump has gotten his way in everything in life. It will be interesting to watch him be told no by Congress, just like every other president. And like other presidents, he will just blame Congress and then go golfing.
Every president has his character tested when making decisions for the country. Trump's test will be how much patience he has.
It will be interesting and fun to watch a president Trump get the obstructionist treatment Obama has been getting from Congress.
I will be waiting to see if Congress will pass spending for his multi-trillion dollar plans. I certainly can't wait to here what the president of Mexico says when Trump asks him for 10's of billions of dollars to build a wall.
If the founding fathers showed us anything, it's that one can be a vulgar racist and still do good things. Of course the founders were truly geniuses; I'm afraid Mr. Trump is handicapped in that area.
The simple answer to Mr. Moore's reason for a Trump win, is a large Democratic voter turnout. During the primaries Democratic voter turnout was down, even with Bernie getting millions of voters out to vote.

Andrew Jackson, a racist slave-owning bigot, was the first Democrat president in a long line of racist bigots that includes Barrack, "Black Lives Matter" Obama. You LOVE racist bigots. Democrats have been voting FOR them since 1820. It's Hillary's America.

"She's been quarantined," another top Democrat said, following a meeting Saturday night.
This is seen as a concession to Sanders, who has been furious at Wasserman Schultz for what he believed was favoritism to Clinton.

The decision was blessed by Clinton and Sanders officials, this Democrat said.

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has hit his highest ranking in the polls.ReplyDelete
This CNN poll Johnson polled at 13 percent with Clinton at 42, Trump at 37, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at five percent.
In order to compete in national debates during the general election, a candidate needs an average of 15 percent in national polls.
With growing dissatisfaction for Clinton and Trump, Gary Johnson now has record numbers for a Libertarian ticket.
Could Gary be the unexpected winner in this election? Some say "no way" - But many also said there was "no way" Donald Trump would be the Republican Presidential nominee.
Crazier things have happened.
Johnson debating the anointed one of the Grand Old Poop party and the anointed one of the Party Of The Donkey, now that would be a VERY welcome development!ReplyDelete

I have zero sympathy for them and the wreck they've made of a once great American political party because they've wrecked the party themselves.

Anyone can make a mistake that might endanger their chances at the voting booth. I think Trump is much more stronger a candidate than Hillary is . Hillary dodged the bullet when no charges were filed against her on the email investigation. I don't know how many chances she's going to have doing that.ReplyDelete
It's depressing that Trump is even this close to the White House. I'm not a Hillary fan, but with Trump as the other choice, I will be voting for Hillary. I would hope most Americans would think the same, but her past may come back to hunt her. I don't think that many Americans Have much confidence in her ant more. I know that my confidence in her has diminished.
In today’s times, it’s easy to harass others. Take that little wink Like for example. He is a troll who most likely lives in his Mothers basement and fits behind a computer in her kitchen, behind a computer screen with a made up moniker. You can Trll by his nasty, disgusting names that he makes up. And that’s the very sad part. Trolls have no backbone. Not guts. No honor. They would never act in person how they act on-line. They are afraid, so they hide.ReplyDelete
So, how do you combat a Troll? You don’t feed it. Put your web page or blog on comment moderation and as soon as you see a comment from said Troll, don’t read it, immediately transfer it to your spam folder. Don’t delete the comments; you may need them in the future.
And never take a Troll seriously. They name-call and project. If they are liars, they will call you a liar. If they are deceptive, they will say you are deceptive. They will even insult your appearance. They are very sick individuals. And in their warped minds, they don’t realize their opinion matters less than fly poop to you. But they have a very bad self-image, so they thrash out at everyone else in the hopes they’ll feel better about themselves.

It's time for new and fresh faces and fresh names and fresh idea, even if Hillary was not found guilty of a crime, why the heck would anyone support Hillary Clinton when the FBI Director James Comey told us that she was reckless, careless and demonstrated that she was not intelligent enough to know what she did was irresponsible, and could have (if if already didn't) lead to being hacked. . we all know by Mr. Comey's words that Hillary is incapable of showing a proper sense of responsibility, and that she was ". reckless, and careless" The factalone that she destroyed the server, expecting everyone to take her word that she turned over all work related emails. If that were a republican the left would crucify them. But not a Clinton, especially Hillary.Therefore WHY would any reasonable person(s) vote this woman as POTUS! Those who choose to vote for Hillary Clinton will be doing so knowing they are voting for a flawed candidate ....As a matter of fact I'd like to hear more about the Clinton Foundation, what Stephanopoulos has to say, because I know he has a lot to say, and I want to hear a lot more about Benghazi, Ww knew that the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film, and that it was a planned attack—not a" protest" like she said it was but again she's not talking, and she really don't give a damn..ReplyDelete
