Donald -vs- Hillary – No Democrat Can Ever Prepare To Face The Unpredictable…

One of Donald Trump’s greatest benefits in a general election match-up is oddly one of our own greatest long-term antagonisms:  the generational, and insufferable, weakness of Republicans.

trump hats etc 2hillary stroke 2

For approximately 30 years the GOP has been in full retreat from an onslaught of progressive liberalism.  Arguably retreat began picking up speed around the time of the Regan-era Iran-Contra scandal, which was unfortunately compounded by a New Jersey RNC lawsuit loss and subsequent life-time Consent Decree.

Regardless of origin, the general republican party has been comprised of spineless twits for the past 3+ decades.

However, setting aside the DNC and RNC -for all intents and purposes having melded into one nuanced UniParty- as a direct consequence of the GOP weakness, the Democrat Party have become accustomed to their opposition being weak and ineffective.  The Republicans are notoriously infected with a defensive flinching more customarily seen amid those with battered spouse syndrome.

Evidence of this historical, and current, Democrat belief -being a perfectly reasonable expectation- can be found amid the various preferred GOPe presidential candidates including: Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, John Kasich, Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, et al…. all party insiders, only various miniscule degrees from the exact same compass heading.

Then along comes THE DONALD TRUMP.

A Vulgarian.

Not just a bull, but a beast of a bull carrying a multitude of atomic sledgehammers amid the proverbial political china shop.

A campaign well beyond shock and awe – where “shock” is defined as jaw-agape, and “awe” is defined as apoplectic angst for the media and cocktail class, with simultaneous glee from the rest of us.

Most common blog phrase to describe the arrival of Trump in 2015: “Finally”

Against the very real possibility that Donald Trump will be the opponent to this cycles’ progressive liberal, Hillary Clinton, the Democrats find themselves in a rather unfamiliar place.

megyn kelly faintIf you don’t think it’s unfamiliar, just look at the MSM responses to Trumped up controversies and the subsequent looks upon their faces days later while reviewing the ever-increasing polled support.

Collectively the MSM apparatus look like they’ve been licked square-in-the-face by that china shop bovine.  They’re clueless.

The “war on women” nonsense is known to be nonsense by 85%+ of the electorate (the remaining 15% are the sensibility-tender safe-space moonbats).  Yes, the Democrats have a traditional quiver full of arrows, but Trump is wearing impenetrable armor.

trump ivankaAttack Trump with “sexism” accusations and you find yourself ridiculed by reality. Because only the most “sexist” of candidates would put his daughter in charge of a billion dollar empire, which coincidentally is led by majority women in leadership amid the various corporate control rooms…. strong in the fail is this arrow.

The reality is, Donald Trump is probably the most non-bigoted, non-racist, non-nativist, non-sexist candidate in the entire field. What matters most to Trump is bottom line culture, and intensely high standards. If that’s you, you’re in like flint; if that’s not you, you’re fired.

Many political observers previously opined that candidate Carly Fiorina was the best equipped candidate to deflect the Clinton arrows, and perhaps they are correct – however, within that sentence the key word is “deflect”.

Candidate Donald Trump doesn’t need to deflect those attacks because -like all other issues- he comes shielded with abundant truth-evidence and the keen skill set to present it. Trump doesn’t need deflection – he can take those attacks head on.

Those who know Donald Trump also know this to be one of his greatest advantages.

      Yep. What’s interesting to me is how predictable it all has become. Sundance alerted everyone to the splitter-strategy months ago and now everybody—from talk radio, to cable news, sundry political magazines and websites, the legacy news channels—are talking about a version of it. So what does the GOPe do? They stick to their original plan, pretending that nobody knows what they’re doing, when we’ve got their damn playbook!!” Nobody, and I mean **nooobody was the least bit surprised to find that the donor class, sundry establishment politicians are now talking about a 3rd anti-Trump party and/or how Hillary would be preferable to Trump. Well, duuh! Sundance and us Treeper renegades were talking rather loudly about this a long time ago.

      History is not kind to battlefield commanders who rigidly adhere to a plan of attack in spite of knowing full well that their enemy is as well informed about their plans as they are. They’re dealing with Trump who not only has their plan but knows exactly what to do about it. This is not going to be pretty.

          In a way it will be very simple and very effective because it will all be very true about Hillary: liar, thief, do-nothing (except self aggrandizement), nasty, physically listless (with physically repulsive implied), and accomplice to rape. The stories write themselves.

          These words all have images and history which will be immediately recognized as true, and make Hillary toxic.

            It’s also very interesting how Trump besides going directly at Hillary Clinton for her scurrilous nonsense, he is saying she doesn’t have the physical stamina or strength to be president.
            Does he know something about her, I’m sure he does. He seems totally confident about vanquishing her. he has been this way from the start. It also seems much more than bravado.

          There was something very personal between Ross Perot and George H W Bush. I believe that this influenced Perot’s decision more than anything.

          Part of it was the Perot (from a native Texas family) viewed the Bush family as basically modern day carpet baggers. Perot was a self made man and he viewed the Bush family as east coast elitists.

          Perot did not feel that Bush did enough to get our POW/MIAs back from the Vietnam conflict as well.

          There were also rumors that Perot’s company (EDS) was working on a bid with the Reagan administration to outsource a large part of the federal government’s IT function and Bush was instrumental in blocking it.

They know what we all know: that Hillary is as ‘warm’ as a dead fish in the Arctic. Sanders gains ground, but everybody knows that while he probably could convince enough dem weirdos to nominate him, he can’t ever win the general. “What to do–What to do?”

        At the ‘opportune moment’, the WH unleashes the Att’y General, who flicks her finger toward the FBI, who finally unveils federal charges against Hillary, whose campaign immediately comes to a grinding halt–just in time for Warren to step in and ‘save the day’.

          Yep, precisely the scenario that I anticipate will happen. I think it’s a foregone conclusion. They are now accepting the reality that Trump will be the likely nominee and they won’t have Jeb to take the fall in order to let her win. Trump would absolutely trounce Sanders, so they can’t take that risk either.

          If it’s Warren or Biden/Warren, they might even talk about going back to Glass-Steagall, because they know both the Right/Left hate what the Banks have done to us. That would help them steal some thunder from Trump. Then, they would renig on that promise.

          I just pray that Donald Trump is researching and anticipating every eventuality – I suspect that he is.

    In December 1979 Ronald Reagan was an “unelectable” loser.

    Ronald Reagan was different because:
    -he was a former Democrat
    -he was a divorcee
    -he was a former actor
    -if elected, he would be the oldest president ever

    He was “unelectable” because:
    -he had lost 2 attempts at winning the GOP nomination before
    -he was despised by many party elites
    -he was not favored by the media/establishment elites
    -he was opposed by the Bush machine
    -he lost the Iowa caucus
    -GOPe John Anderson split off to run as independent
    -Gallup poll in December 1979 showed him losing to Carter 62%-33%… Carter’s lead would continue to summer 1980

      Plus according to George Will before the Reagan Revolution was a reality, this is how he referred to The Gipper’s supporters ….

      “His hardcore support today consists primarily of the kamikaze conservatives ”

      Will hated Reagan & those that backed him … wanted to “cleanse” the party of them …

      “If a Reagan third party would just lead the “Nixon was lynched” crowd away from the Republican party, and into outer darkness where there is a wailing and gnashing of teeth, it might be at worst a mixed course for the Republican party. It would cost the party some support, but it would make the party seem cleansed.”

      He’s beating the same drum against Trump he did Reagan … before he realized he was out of business unless he climbed on board. This time who cares if he ever comes around … he’s through … nothing but a doddering old fool that nobody pays attention to.

      • I remember vividly how utterly asinine the Republican establishment sounded with their attacks on Reagan. Reagan ignored them all and focused on gathering support from the real power in this country, the people. He appealed to everyone who was suffering under Carter’s monumental malaise; 7.5% unemployment, 15.25% prime interest rates, 12% inflation rate… our economy was in a terrible mess.

        Fast forward to our numbers today – all 3 of those economic indicators are bastardized. None of the numbers accumulated in 1980 are counted in the same way today. The truth is, we don’t even know what the real numbers are because all of the governmental entities responsible for putting out the data are corrupted.

        And here’s the most important thing about this: WE ALL KNOW WE’RE BEING USED, SCREWED AND TATTOOED BY OUR GOVERNMENT! The ruling class are a bunch of criminals and they must be fired! Go Donald Trump!

        All would go as it was supposed to, and for the Democrats that plan is still working, for now. But Trump has definitely changed things and may change them more. It has truly tipped the Combine’s little apple cart — let us all hope that it completely upsets it.

            That was the reason for the born in Hawaii ‘story’ and resulting controversy.

            Perhaps people equate born in the US as natural born (I don’t, BTW).

            If the facts peddled facts of Obama’s conception/birth are true, he can only be a citizen if he was born in Hawaii as claimed (the mother was too young). The born in the US story had to be pushed hard.

            I see Cruz’s situation as much different.

            First of all, my question is how can you be considered a natural born US citizen if you have renounced another citizenship? I interpret Vattel as meaning children born in the land by parents who are both citizens of that land as meaning you don’t need any law to determine their citizenship. There is no other citizenship they could have.

            Secondly, as a US, non-military citizen parent of a child born outside the US to a foreign mother, I know there is a procedure you use to stake a US citizenship claim for the child. It’s the Consular Report of a Birth Abroad. Cruz’s mother should have one or explain why she didn’t get one.

            My WAG in this matter is that Cruz’s father was a draft dodger and the mom didn’t apply for a CRBA out out solidarity with the father.

            “But, the leftist press joined the entire leftist political apparatus in despising the US Constitution and all it stands for–as Schmuck Schumer says, “it’s a living, breathing document”–which made it very easy for them to ignore the inconvenient provisions therein in favor of their smooth-talking (at least when there is a teleprompter nearby) sham huckster.

            “So, the leftist press made great sport of denigrating and marginalizing anyone who dared to bring up the obvious inconsistencies in Obama’s documentation, and cleared the way for Obama’s ascension. That’s why.”

            Further, the leftist apparatus found it imperative to seal virtually ALL of Obama’s records & work product–WHY do that if there isn’t ‘fire’ behind all the ‘smoke’?

            One observation: Ted Cruz would never enjoy the same press protection–they despise him through and through, and should he secure the GOP nomination, it’d be ‘game on’ against him. They would shred Ted Cruz mercilessly.

            Luckily, Cruz won’t have to find out. It’s Trump 2016–and he is impervious to their attacks.

            Technically you are correct. Women give birth to children, that are sired by men. However, we are discussing legal rights and privileges, in this case citizenship. At the time of the Constitution was written, it is likely that the author(s) of the “Natural Born” clause followed English law and traditions. In short, all property rights, titles and privileges come down from the male to his male heirs with some exceptions.

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primogeniture

            http://womenshistory.about.com/library/etext/bl1911_womenf.htm

            Also, much of their knowledge concerning a nation state came from the work of Emmerich De Vattel and his “Laws of Nations.”

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emer_de_Vattel

            Specifically concerning the issue surrounding the “Natural Born” citizen clause:

            Chapter 19

            Ҥ 212. Citizens and natives.

            The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

            Notice the word “father” in the text in regards to passing down citizenship?

Some guys are afraid of them, but I tend to find that confident guys just pay zero mind to it, and wear them if they look good with the rest of their stuff.

    So bottom line – one more proof of Trump’s TOTAL confidence!

            Pink lemonade, maybe?

            As a little girl (maybe 7 to 9 years old), I remember spending my allowance to buy my much-beloved, incredibly stubborn, World War Two vet father a PINK tie, and matching PINK suspenders. They were pretty godawful worn together, but, at the time, I thought they were MAGNIFICIENT.

            My mother–hardly the shy & retiring type—scoffed, and informed me I was wasting my “hard-earned” money, but I was CONVINCED they would look gorgeous on my dad, with his crisp white hair, and beautiful crystal-blue eyes.

            And they DID! ESPECIALLY when he confidently, & a tad IRREVERENTLY, wore them to WORK (a hyper-masculine place for him, as it consisted of the actual office of the construction company he was an estimator for, AND also involved him going out to the construction sites, which, at that time, were full of blue-collar white construction workers, and a lot of tough-talking’ black guys…..no illegals!).

            Thanks to all in this conversation–for pointing out the confidence demonstrated by The Donald’s pink tie…….and for reminding me of a much-treasured memory of my late father. My dad believed in me much the way Trump does in Ivanka, and I THANK GOD every day that I had him in my life. TRUMP 2016—“in the pink”!!

              Great story Jugdy,
              I am well aware of the hyper-masculinity of which you speak around construction sites.

              A bold statement indeed by your father, and by yourself for giving the gift.
              Well done.

              I purchased my first (and I think only) pink shirt when my daughter went away to college.
              It was a pink “Illinois State” t-shirt with an outlined logo of the ISU Redbird.
              I have wore that thing dozens, if not hundreds, of times over the last 12 years.

              A very light cotton t- perfect for summer days.
              And no comments by anyone, so I figured I was (somehow) pulling off the ‘confident’ vibe.

              And then a few months ago my wife and I were at an ocean side bar in north Fla, having a drink prior to returning to our room, I was wearing said pink t-shirt, and a young local guy comes over and asks me if I’m gay.
              I asked “why, are you looking for a date? If so, I’m not your guy”.
              He seemed to get a bit peeved by my reply, and he thought he was being funny (probably his buddies at the bar put him up to it) and he started explaining to me that only gay guys wear pink when the people at the table next to us started laughing at him (they had been overhearing the conversation it turns out).

              Then we started laughing at him, then he just turned and walked away.
              A few minutes later, he and his 2 friends all came over and apologized.

              I told them don’t sweat it, I’m in Florida in having a beer next to the ocean, and I’m fine. They really didn’t bother me at all, just confused me a bit.

              Moral to that story?
              Maybe my ‘confident’ is wearing off, or I’m aging out of it, or something like that ……

Burnt spoon by the bed, used up our last pack of debt. Empty whiskey bottles from black-out drunk wars, and we can’t even remember if we beat up Al Qaeda or if Al Qaeda is still our buddy, after he changed his name to ISIS.

He explained how he was astonished that, behind closed doors, the most vehement of public enemies were best of friends. He said that he witnessed a so-called mortal enemy of Ted Kennedy standing there giving him a back rub. He said he realized then there opposition was only for public consumption.

        I support the Task Force report and its recommendations aimed at building a safer and more prosperous North America. Economic prosperity and a world safe from terrorism and other security threats are no doubt inextricably linked. While governments play an invaluable role in both regards, we must emphasize the imperative that economic investment be led and perpetuated by the private sector. There is no force proven like the market for aligning incentives, sourcing capital, and producing results like financial markets and profit-making businesses. This is simply necessary to sustain a higher living standard for the poorest among us–truly the measure of our success.

        Above, you will find this statement, While on the Council of Foreign Relations HEIDI S. CRUZ completed a task force report on Building a North American Global Community.

        The actual title is: Building a North American Community. We all know the toxicity of “globalism”.

        Heidi S. Cruz completed a task force report?

        I counted 31 members of the task force plus 6 chairpersons, and posted a question about her participation.

        I read the report and posted Mrs. Cruz’s statement of support.

        Perhaps, nobody cares about getting false information. I do.

        Wait…haven’t a read plenty of complaints about CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, blah blah blah?

        We are all in a slow flush down the toilet and I’m going to “call a spade a spade”.

          I don’t think you are my enemy, and I’m willing to bury the hatchet.
          Arguing over some minutea, that gives Ted Cruz any credibility is like arguing about the 14 extra bullets pumped into that fine upstanding citizen Laquan Mcdonald. The first 2 bullets killed him, who cares about the rest.
          Laquan Mcdonald is garbage, Ted Cruz is garbage, Goldman Sachs is garbage, and to offer any defense is wrong. Please bring this to the attention of Sundance, if you like. When Sundance does the next open forum later today, we’ll discus this openly. I think burying the hatchet would be better, but we can go the other way if you like.

            I had read the word “global” within the title of the subject report on this site prior to this discussion, but decided to take a look for myself, as is clear. The word is like poison within some contexts. When I learned that the word does not appear within the actual title, I became very angry. Then I learned that Heidi Cruz didn’t author the report and became, to use another poster’s word, “unglued”.

            If you propagated the toxic title and putative authorship, then I have an additional subject for my anger.

                With respect to 1.: “If you propagated the toxic title and putative authorship, then I have an additional subject for my anger.” (I quoted myself.) Your #1–not to be confused with a pee-stream–implies that you did not understand this sentence. Please don’t be alarmed.

                In the trailing clause, that is, after the comma of my quoted sentence, the word “additional” should be construed as “in addition to”. It’s bad form to speak unwell of the host, therefore a minor euphemism was employed. When you understand this, you will conclude that this obviates the need to address your #3. Your #2 will be ignored: my original assertion stands.

This last word refers to your side of the street in this dispute. I don’t believe that my side of the street needs cleaning: The only thing could be that I can did not act to confirm the first instance of reading the false title and assertion of Mrs. Cruz’s “authorship”.

      Trump has single-handedly woken up the General American Public. People are finally beginning to see a glimpse of a Post-PC Culture. He’s rallying Americans together that have been divided by ideological lines. You see Trump, pushes the Overton Window on every freaking topic back towards Sanity.

      And then you see a Ted Cruz (Mr. Constitutional Conservative except when it comes to Original Intent of the Natural Born clause, but I digress) who couldn’t do that on his own.

      He hasn’t woken the people up.
      He hasn’t changed the debate on any topic
      He can’t take on the media (watch his recent ones on Fox News over Gang of 8 amendment…just brutal)
      He can’t even rally the GOP in the Senate against Obama

      So yeah, if Cruz wins I’d be furious because it’ll be like he received the credit for all of Trump’s work. I don’t like feeling I have to settle for a candidate, and frankly that’s how Cruz is running against Trump. “Settle for me!”

      I’m not “afraid” of Cruz–I’m “disgusted” by him. I’ve seen what he says when he thinks he’s ‘behind closed doors’. I echo dizzymissl’s advice: “check his donors”; and I know that…

      …Cruz is a LONER, not a LEADER;
      …Cruz is a schemer; a manipulator who seeks to hoodwink voters into supporting him;
      …Cruz has NO ability to deal with the press;
      …and Cruz has NO chance to beat Hillary (or anybody else) in the general election.

      Cruz is a POLARIZING figure; the left despise him and he will make no gains among them. The press will shred him to ribbons.

      I used to think Mark Levin was worth listening to, right up until he went into the tank for Cruz. I believe Levin is “bought and paid for” now. I suppose Cruz has offered Levin a nice, plum job in a Cruz Administration– I’m thinking “White House Chief of Staff” (no senate confirmation required–Levin would be ‘Borked’ for sure if Cruz put him forward as Attorney General, or as a Supreme Court nominee).

      Nope, not “afraid” of Cruz. “Disgusted” by him.

  20. Another thing about Trump that has been touched on is that he prioritizes competence. I know that he is running his campaign and that he is the “brains” behind the operation, but his political team is very skillful. Corey Lewandowski seems to be taking the rare approach of actually promoting instead of overshadowing the candidate, unlike mercenary losers like Mike Murphy, or the nitwit Stu Stevens. Katrina Pierson is very effective in the attack role, a true assassin. Really impressive. Best of all, IMO, is the association that Roger Stone has with Trump. Although not “technically” part of the Trump campaign, Stone is an extremely effective political operative with a very long track record. Bad to the bone. Read up on all of their accomplishments and I think you will be impressed at the talent that has been brought together:

    • The key for Trump to clean up the Democrats – and to sweep them away from Cankles – is Iraq. That wins the Dems. Trump’s early statements linking Jeb to W were labeled unfair, but with Jeb’s war-bluster ads in Ohio, we’re seeing pure Bushism again, and Trump was SPOT-ON, as always. Hillary will have us in a crazy war of some kind for sure, too – look how she took the death option on Gadaffi. She’s a snake that will start a war in a heartbeat. Dems should FLOCK to Trump, if they have any sense.

      Trump needs to bait Jeb in just a little bit more on his Trump sound-byte about “this is not our fight”, and then snap down on Jeb with fury. He’ll find just the right words, I’m sure. The point is that Jeb and company want war, and they want it with all the wrong people. Trump sees simple truth – that the ISIS we created is genocidal, and that Russia going after them is a good thing. The Bushies are saying “let’s attack Assad and make it worse, and maybe Russia, too!” They use attacking ISIS as some kind of stage prop – almost a joke after THEY created ISIS.

      Trump wants America to be smart again. YES. Republicans and Democrats who don’t listen to Uniparty propaganda know that Trump is in the direction America needs to be heading.

    Hillary2016 is very well positioned to beat the brains out of… Jeb Bush. If Jeb Bush is the nominee Hillary Clinton can go on an eight month vacation next year and still win. If Marco Rubio is the nominee, Hillary can take a seven month vacation. Ted Cruz as the nominee, Hillary’s vacation is cut down further but her victory is almost assured. But against Donald Trump?

    Against Donald Trump the Brooklyn Hillary headquarters will resemble the Bastille on July 14, 1789. With a Trump nomination, forces will be unleashed that will have party princes hanging from lampposts on Court Street and along the Brooklyn Heights. Republican leaders will be politically guillotined on K Street in the District. As Lindsey Graham and Jeb Bush have learned, those who ignore the present will soon become the past.

      Do you know what the personal agendas for each and every black, Hispanic, or white female is? He doesn’t have to have all of their votes, just some of them. And there will be some who see Trump as playing to their personal agenda (the wall is highly popular with a lot of blacks and more than a few white women, and there are some latinos who are for it as well), a hard line with immigration vis a vis middle easterners is also popular with some of them.
      And he isn’t going after the social safety net — rather he is promising more jobs….if you are suggesting that social programs are important to those groups (and blue collar workers across the board), you are correct. However, for many of them (thanks to the policies that have been in place for decades that eroded any security the lower economic groups might have had; policies that the GOP has had no problem with, that the GOP did not mind seeing enacted on the American people — Mitt Romney’s dad was Sec. of HUD back when housing projects really took off….how did those work out for black people?) this is perhaps a reasonable fear: people will vote against a perceived threat to their existence. To get mad at them for that is not productive — and in that the GOP has foolishly played right along (karma is coming due for a lot of people).
      Now, the entitled of those groups and the foolish (plus muslims) — they will not vote for him, along with the elites, although some savvy ones might decide it’s better to save their own hides — but that will not be every black, Hispanic, or white woman. In fact, this could be exploited by Trump to his advantage.

    At this juncture, I find it amazing that the Dems would think Hillary can prevail against Trump. Looking at the political landscape I am still stunned that Elizabeth Warren did not seek the Dem nomination. She would be leading Hillary now! Frankly, I think Elizabeth Warren, with her message against billionaires and Wall Street, would be a tougher challenge to Trump than Hillary or Sanders.

    If I’m the Dems and I see Trump win IA and/or NH, I would hope to see Hillary drop out of the race for her own good and the good of the party. I think they would be better off with Joe Biden (and Sundance talked about this too) coming and having Warren on the ticket as VP to counter Trump. As it stands, Trump will face Hillary with all of her scandals, failures, and Trump credibly knows her personally, having been a major donor of hers, to call her out on her corruption.

    He has so many ways to attack her and so much time to beat her to a pulp that honestly, if the Dems don’t take Trump seriously, he will defeat her in an epic landslide. I don’t think Trump would be able to defeat a Biden/Warren ticket as easily. I wouldn’t put it pass the Obama administration to drop the indictment card on Hillary, if it becomes too clear that Trump is going to win a walk. Stay tuned for some unusual politics in the coming year if Trump wins Iowa from the GOPe (run Romney or Bloomberg as 3rd party candidates) and Dems.

    In 1980, Reagan won 495 electoral votes, Carter won 49 and Anderson didn’t win any. Popular vote was 50% Reagan, 41% Carter and 9% Anderson.
    Hillary’s running on Obama’s record so the results should be: Trump 395 electoral votes, Hillary 149 and Jeb! 0 and the popular vote: Trump 51%,Clinton 43% Jeb! 6%,
    That’s my prediction and I’m sticking with it.

    Question: I want to send a semi-converted Trumpo Friend the link to Trump’s most convincing rally – perhaps one in which he was particularly inspired in the way he presented his arguments, not necessarily the most passionate one.

    Any suggestion from fellow Trumpeteers, with link and all?

    I’ve seen so many, they are a little mixed up in my head.

      I’d recommend this, although not a rally, This presser where Trump lets the victims of Illegal Aliens speak is very, VERY moving. It’s a long video, but a total tear-jerker. It was when he first started running, back in July. This is a MUST WATCH

      Secondly, I would also recommend his last rally in Michigan as he’s really hitting his stride AND they actually pan to show the huge, enthusiastic crowd.

      Go to RSBN.TV for the latest Trump speeches. I find he gets better as he goes. But my favorites were the ones with the loved ones of murder victims of the illegals and the one with the black preachers. Also the one he told the story of how he built the ice skating rink in NYC.

    Maybe Michigan….Trump stopped his speech and forced (coerced or engaged) the camera-men to pan the audience. It demonstrated the true dimensions of the crowd and the enormous support he has. It was a HUGE moment. It was played on many stations numerous times.

    As usual very interesting.

    Mr. Trump tweets “BE CARFUL” to Hillary and the pundits immediately infer the “Bullied Bill’s Bimbo’s” angle and NOT the Trump enterprises employment record angle.

    Trump has turned the fear factor right back on them. Shocked palefaced democrats and GOPe ‘republicans’ are stumbling around saying, “Watch out! It’s a trap. This guy hits back!!!”
