This Khan man is getting his 15 minutes of fame. I'm sick of hearing from him. Who gives him the right to be lecturing us on what is moral? I feel very badly that he lost a son in Iraq. Donald Trump was not responsible for that. Put the blame on the doorstep of George Bush who started a needless war that killed thousands of military men and civilians. Blame Hillary Clinton for voting to authorize the war. In the community in which I now live many parents lost children when Muslims flew planes into the World Trade Center. They still feel the pain but they have moved on with their lives. The Khan's son was in the military. He enlisted and assumed the danger. The people in the World Trade Center on that September morning were not expecting what happened. Trump is a disgusting person who should not be president but I don't need lectures from Mr. Khan to remind me of that!! You had your 15 minutes now go away.
Well folks the traditional wisdom holds that politics only gets serious post Labor Day. People are back from vacation, kids back in school and the flow of life returns to normal. Supposedly this "normal" includes voters taking the presidential race more seriously however in this year of putrid candidates that may prove elusive at best. By all accounts the Queen of Corruption, Hillary Clinton, will win pretty handily come November. Her advantage in the electoral college is clear and she has tons of ill gotten gains in the bank. She should win in a walk but I don't think she will. Yes she probably will squeak by and achieve her cherished goal of being the first woman to be president. Still Trump is proving to be the energizer bunny running around the country doing rallies while Hillary is busy taking naps. Indeed this may reflect the fact that she is not well. Yesterday's big coughing attack in Ohio did nothing to quiet the rumors that she is seriously ill.
So it's quite possible that this election may give us a big surprise. I still intend to vote for Gary Johnson although the likelihood of him appearing in the first debate is now remote and this will surely hurt his chances of being a real factor. It's clear that tons of people hate Hillary and if that emotion does make it's way into the voting booths come November we might be in for a surprise.
I know the news for Trump has been awful and as usual all of his own making. A couple of recent national polls has him losing to the African Queen by significant if not overwhelming margins. Republican leaders stay clear of their probable nominee. No Republican of note will be speaking at Trump's Coronation. Indeed, I wonder if Donald plans to enter the convention hall on a fake gold throne being carried by black men. Anyway,polls show nearly 70% of Americans can't stand the putz so you would think he is toast. Maybe not
First what happened in England can happen hear. Thinking Hillary is a sure bet those who dislike Trump will still vote for him as a form of protest. Voters did that in England and look at the results. But perhaps the biggest wake up I recently received was while driving my grandkids to their summer camp the homes along the way displayed many Trump yard signs. No other candidate was represented. There is a core vote that will come out for Trump. Probably not enough to offset the edge of the African Queen in the black and Latino vote but it will be significant. This election will be a lot closer than anyone thinks right now. The hatred of Hillary Clinton by so many people will make this a very unpredictable November.
Well folks Hillary got what she wanted all her vulgar life. She is now the first woman to be nominated for president largely owing to her getting a huge percentage of the African American vote in southern states. Indeed, without the huge majorities she racked up in the deep south during the primaries Bernie Sanders would probably have had a very good chance of being the nominee. So as all post menstrual woman celebrate one of their own being in line for the Oval Office they should recognize how Hillary got here. And of course the other big factor is the reluctance of the black female attorney general backed by the black President not charging Hillary with criminal activity because of her email. Yes folks the new Evita of American politics owes her existence and nomination to black Americans. She is the African Queen.
Well folks I've been saying for months that Ted Cruz looked evil and resembled Dracula in appearance. Well yesterday fellow Republican and former Speaker of the House John Boehner referred to Cruz as "Lucifer". That was very amusing but I think Rep. Peter King another Republican from Long Island chimed in that referring to Cruz as Lucifer "gave Lucifer a bad name". Just loved that one.
It comes as no surprise that people hate Ted Cruz. I find him repulsive to the core. Yet this is the vile creature that the GOP establishment sought to rally around in order to stop Trump. The tactic was absurd. The establishment should have rallied around John Kasich after Wisconsin. Cruz was an awful choice for the Trump alternative. How dumb are these people!!!
I happened to catch the Trump press conference yesterday and was just amazed on several different levels. First and foremost is that the man is a lunatic. Putting him in the Oval Office would be a calamity for the nation and the world. I don't know why Hillary is just not outright calling him insane because he is most certainly mentally deranged. All that being said I was very amused at the way the press took umbrage at his remarks about their dishonestly. They were indignant in comments after the event. How ironic since it was the press and the media that has brought this lunatic to where he is today. They loved him when he created great copy for them. They kissed his disgusting fat ass. They never asked him the hard questions. The press is getting exactly what they deserve!!!
However there was one aspect of the presser that I loved. It was when Trump insulted Bill Kristol. If anyone is worthy of being insulted it's this putrid man. Kristol is trying to get a third party candidate to run in the election because he hates Trump. Fair enough but Kristol is whistling in the wind. As Trump pointed out the man is a loser. He has been WRONG about everything and is a major LOSER.
It looks like Ted Cruz will win the Republican primary in Wisconsin tonight. So sad. Not that we are Trump fans. This blog has consistently torched Trump as being insane and unfit for office. But the truth be known folks Ted Cruz is not much better. Indeed, he is a truly disgusting person that I dare say has a very evil streak in him. In fact he even looks evil having a distinct resemblance to Dracula. Cruz is supported by a bevy of religious nuts among them pastors that want to kill all gay people. The Texas Senator is despised by virtually every Republican in the Senate and he has insulted and smeared so many fellow Republicans that it's hard to keep count.
The support that Cruz is currently getting is predicated on the fact that voters don't want Trump. And while stopping Trump from getting the GOP nomination is a good goal supporting Cruz is a fools game. In a general election Cruz will suffer a Goldwater type defeat and would probably poll worse that Trump. The only GOP candidate who is sane and worthy of support is John Kasich who Cruz is demanding to get out of the race. Who the fuck does Crux think he is to demand such a thing? Stay in John if only to annoy this Texas shit head. Recently Cruz has taken to smearing Kasich which is not surprising. What a horrible and evil person. Senator smear!!!!
Julius Caesar was told to beware the Ides of March on his way to the Forum where he would be assassinated. He didn't listen. Today America is facing another primary election that could very likely anoint a fascist thug as the nominee of a major American political party. Beware the Ides of March indeed!!!! Unless there is divine intervention Donald Trump will be nominated and "hopefully" be rejected by the voters in November.
Still the damage has been done. A carnival barker is in line to control the nuclear code. America has been "dumbed" down to reality political TV and the media is responsible in large part to the rise of Trump. Really folks get a look at the crowd at a Trump rally. These people are ignorant trash and they are driving the political debate. Truly amazing and disturbing. Readers have been advised that Trump is imitating the success of Hitler in the early 1920's. The pledge to Trump. The salutes. We are in some pretty bad territory. Of course the Trump supporters as so ignorant and ill educated in history they can't recognize what is going on.
Democrats have their issues as well. Hillary Clinton is a horrible candidate and I predict she will get smoked tonight. Bernie is amazing. He is an inspiration for me. A man his age with so much vigor. Don't agree with him on lots of things but the man is a mensch. She will be the nominee and probably win against Trump. But who knows???? She is a very vulnerable candidate. She continues to make unforced errors in the campaign that are stunning. Behind all the hype there is very little substance.
America, Beware the Ides of March
Donald Trump is unstable and unfit to be the President of the United States.
Plain and simple he's nuts yet no Republican on the debate stage with him has the guts to put that forth. They say Trump is immune from criticism. That even after his unhinged performance in the South Carolina debate he is going up in the polls and on this way to the nomination. There is only one way to stop this lunatic and that's to challenge his sanity and fitness for office.
Trump is a national disgrace and if he is nominated – and God forbid- elected president the standing of our country in the world will reach a new low. I have been a political junkie since I was a teenager and I have never witnessed anything like Trump. I am depressed and incredulous at the crowds that seem to adore him and for those willing to vote for such a despicable person. He must be exposed for what he is and the only way is for one of those other gutless wonders running for the Republican nomination to call him out for being NUTS. Do people really want this crazy person to have his finger on the nuclear button?
The 2016 Presidential derby is already underway and the past weekend several of the GOP hopefuls attended a conference in Iowa that was organized by Rep. Steve King. He’s the guy who yells and screams about immigration and who is generally considered by any rationale person to be a right wing nut. Among the stars appearing were Sarah Palin who once again displayed almost total ignorance of being and made a complete ass of herself as usual. Donald Trump was there with him comb over looking even more ludicrous than usual. That little punk Scott Walker of Wisconsin made a real splash according to most accounts with his religious revival speech. There were more of course but the main point here is that the Republican Party is essentially the party of lunatics and mentally challenged people. Not that things look that better on the other side of the fence with the most obnoxious incompetent woman in America likely to get the Democrat nod for the oval office. I will miss President Obama.
