    WaPo’s Chris Clitzilla and his simpering bleating about reporting on Hillary’s health is so pathetic it made Hillary hack up a lunger

    This is more disgusting than Ted’s booger eating.

    Trump continues to astound the MSM and triumph despite their coordinated efforts to damage him. What is the likelihood that Clinton won’t be given an advance list of all the questions at the debates? Zero, in my opinion. We found out today that her longtime assistant Phillipe Reines sent the setup questions to Sen. Menendez at the first Benghazi hearing, so secretly supplying the debate questions to the Clinton campaign would be no biggie. I am confident that candidate Trump will do a magnificent job in the debates despite the hostile and biased hosts. Watch for Clinton to show unexpected and unprecedented command of the questions that she is asked, and signs that the answers have been rehearsed.

    Ok, fellow Treepers, gotta vent.

    Just got off phone with my long time best friend who resides in San Jose, CA (yeah, THAT city). She was all upset because “Donald Trump has not turned out to be the man I thought he was for President. And, I can’t vote for Hillary. I don’t know what to do.” Why do you say that? “Well, he said he would build the wall and have Mexico pay for it, but after that press conference he said he wasn’t ready to talk about it. He’s gone back on his word. It is not economically possible for Mexico to pay for the wall because they are such a poor country. He says so many stupid things. How can I trust him?” So, where are you getting this info from? “TV.” Well, that right there is your problem. Then I really went off on her and the whole media bias thingie.

    It came down to this: she had not watched a single Trump event, read any of his position papers or speeches or ever been to his website, but she was ready to give up on him based solely on what her TV was telling her. She is a reasonably intelligent woman, but HOW CAN SHE BE SO STUPID??????????? She KNOWS they lie on TV, yet she fell for it. Gah! I didn’t pull any punches and set her straight about the entire plan and purpose of every alphabet station. Then, I sent her to his website for his position statements and to RSBN. Told her to start with his recent policy speeches and watch the entire thing, then pick a rally and watch THAT entire event.

    Lord have mercy. It just goes to show there is a percentage of the population who KNOW the media lies but is still susceptible to it. I am off to my padded room to slowly beat my head against the wall.

    /vent off

    Some local trivia – For those concerned with Mr. Trump’s safety, a local guy has pics of USSS snipers at the Canfield Fair yesterday. The snipers were on the roof of the Fair Grandstand. And those snipers are all business. No slouches here. So please keep our USSS in your prayers, as well as Mr. Trump.

    Angels For Animals booth at the Canfield Fair was holding a “voting” donation for their animal shelter, Clinton or Trump. Apparently Mr. Trump won 2 to 1.

    WFMJ TV has, in my observation, been given unfettered access to Trump supporters, to speak with any and all supporters who choose to participate. This may or may not be true in other local markets, I do not know. WFMJ is the only locally owned media enterprise of which I am aware locally, started and still owned by the Maag family since before my memory begins. They also own the local paper, The Y-town Vindicator (which is fish wrap imo, but what do I know?). All other local media, print and broadcast, are owned by large media conglomerates, to my knowledge. What this means, I do not know.

    Finally, it is long accepted fact that Y-town and the Mahoning Valley are Union and Democratic strongholds (among other “groups”). But this year…?

    Just so proud to be an Illinoisan. (Said with the thickest amount of snark possible.) I voted for this piece of crud. Well, let me just tell you that I crafted a harshly worded email to Gov. Rauner informing him that he is a turncoat and a coward for not having the cajones to endorse the candidate he obviously wants to win -HRC. Also asked what his cut was going to be. Oh – and of course he won’t get any of my family’s votes ever again – I’d rather have a Dem governor of this godforsaken blue state anyway. Scum.

    I have noticed something, besides the reply feature not working, starting with Hillary’s we are KKK/NAZI’s speech.SHE has come unhinged the same way Jeb,Lyndsey,Marco and Cruz did…..

    She makes no sense and is flailing away now. Trump gave an excellent critique of the whole e-mail fiasco and she is starting a war with Russia and a bunch of grade school garbage.

    Hillary has been Trumped!!!!!,

      Really getting tired of these immigration questions. And I don’t understand why Trump keeps answering it the way he does. I thought he was very clear after last week in Arizona, but every time someone asks him now about the “non-criminal” aliens he won’t give a straight answer. Same thing in his interview with David Muir tonight.

    Don’t know if my fellow TCH people are hearing radio ads by Gary Johnson, but they’re running in Virginia. Johnson is such a LIAR. He says that BOTH Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will keep the United States at war, will raise taxes, will not respect all people, will bow to their crony capitalist controllers. Says that he, Johnson, is the only one running for President who is honest enough, has the integrity, etc, etc., to hold the office. I feel like I have to take a shower after hearing one of his radio ads, they’re awful.

    Obama nominates Muslim-American as federal judge for first time ever
    2h

    Qureshi’s nomination comes amid a racially charged presidential election campaign waged by GOP nominee Donald Trump. The real-estate mogul has suggested that a judge of Muslim or Latino descent could be unfit for the job due to his own controversial rhetoric aimed at both groups.

      Whether or not Qureshi’s’s nomination is confirmed before Obama leaves office remains to be seen.

      Senate Republicans have vowed not to hold any hearings on the matter after Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland to the US Supreme Court in March to replace Justice Antonin Scalia, who died a month earlier.

      The Republicans had better stick to the plan. Wait for Trump to be elected.

    UK to build concrete wall in Calais to stop migrants making it across Channel to Britain

    Security is to be stepped up at the French port as official figures show one migrant is caught trying to sneak into the UK every six minutes

    A huge concrete wall is to be built by Britain in Calais to stop migrants making it across the Channel .

    Immigration minister Robert Goodwill confirmed the move last night as he looks to beef up security at the French port.

    The 13ft concrete £2million barrier will stretch for a mile and replace fencing that has so far failed to stop stowaways targeting lorries. […]
