      For the 2020 election, half or more of them will be Trump supporters themselves.

      Democrat Kaine and Hillary are confident in the evidence of fraud and electronic rigging through machines or the transmission of the vote data being altered midstream.

      His first comment about Facebook and Twitter is interesting. Obviously he hasn’t checked out the comments on Hillary’s facebook page and compared # of followers, RTs and likes. For a dude on social media, he seems a bit insular. I am curious what he defines as ‘regular establishments’?


    • rsanchez1990 says:

      Reinforces sundance’s posts that the media narrative is different from the reality of the election. I imagine it’s the opposite for Trump supporters, getting discouraged by the media polling, which is dishonest and designed to discourage Trump supporters. The antidote is to realize media polling is crap. We’ll never lose that sense of confidence in Trump if we realize more accurate polling has had him leading for a long time.

        I am so tired of all of the depressed people buying into these polls yet say they support Trump. Trump is a huge optimist. Trump supporters should follow their leader. Too many are letting the media play with their mind. We are winning more votes every day and we are going to win on election day and it will be a landslide. If you use critical thinking you won’t come up with any other scenario. The Monster Vote is real and is coming. Instead of worrying about the polls these people should be putting their energy in getting out the vote for Trump. Brainwashing is a dangerous thing people.

    Clinton in Raleigh; tired, no ideas, no idea. Campaign running on fumes. Hundreds of millions in negative ads are waste, they’re not working. Trolls and troll strategies being called out as they emerge. They will soon enter the bunker of despair. Wikileaks has exposed the internal hatreds and jealousies within the campaign and as the despair sets in these will percolate to the surface and public view. The blame game will be ferocious. Who will be the first in the media to turn on them in order to preserve any remaining shreds of journalistic credibility? Is there an honest man or woman among them. Save yourself now! Come into the bright rays of daylight. Tell the truth!. We already know it anyway.

      I see a lot of good people, Trump supporters, being upset that Wikileaks isn’t reaching liberals because of the MSM blackout. But not many of those people would have been swayed anyway. The biggest damage from Wikileaks is the hatred, distrust and infighting it’s causing within the Democrat Party and all its little factions. President Trump will take great advantage of that as he carves the establishment into powerless little pieces.

        As the MSM blackout continues, I am so glad Trump played the Smith dinner as he did. All those media folks in the room…. there probably was a Venezuela run on tp after Trump finished.

          ok this is something personal to me …..raised Catholic……..was ashamed that a cardinal sat next to and accepted a very evil person at a charity event no less……This was beyond what is acceptable for a religious leader. Mr. Trump stood up there and spoke the absolute truth among traitors and was booed ……..so courageous ……..a little something that has been made fun of by the MSM ….Trump’s saying “Believe Me”…….Jesus always said “I tell you the Truth” when he needed us to pay close attention. Holy Spirit at work!

      Never saw so many moderators and pundits stuttering this much. They all look void of confidence. Guys like Bret Baier brimmign with confidence about their “news” look small and insecure. Happened since Trump survived the B.S. allegations. He was supposed to fall through this!
      Some of Fox cast come along at least through social media.

      Well, that said nothing. They are obviously still releasing the emails.. It never was Assange alone clicking a button.
      Maybe he likes to push this panic about his whereabouts a bit to give more focus to wikileaks and his case(guy is in a room in the ecuadorian embassy for 4 years, basicly a better prison)-

      Most probably Obama and Kerry at least cut him off the net until the election is over.
      I dont think they have the balls to create a black ops situation in the ecuadorian embassy.
      His twitter account is obviously not him posting anymore though that is clear.

    I’ll give you some statements of truth…
    One way to gauge a person’s integrity is by their children’s behavior…certainly not true in all cases, but I AM AMAZED at how poised, polite, composed and mature the Trump children are. Ivanka, well I’ve got a crush on her but that’s a different story. How organized is this campaign? Aside from bus locker room video and lying tramp stories, there has not been a glitch anywhere along the way…
    Management…no slipups at rallys, plane has functioned perfectly (God’s blessing), message has been on point, warriors have been on attack…Bannon and Kellyanne have been doing their jobs…so has Sessions, and Rudy and Pence…
    I am convinced that I am witnessing the greatest organizational feat ever…including anything that has been ever done in sports.
    The youth of America, with their undercover videos and Twitter, have played an enormous role in this campaign. Republicans (I know we really aren’t) tend to lose on the humor, right back at ya thing…we are killing it!!!!
    Only a God driven endeavor could have these results…I’m glad I was alive to see it, vote in it, donate to it and be a part of the WINNING!!!!

    Report from Palm Desert, Ca. Driving down one of the busiest streets of a high end shopping area, this is what we saw:

    A full sized picture of Hillary with here legs on fire and a flashing neon on sign above her head saying, Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire!!. I kid you not. In the display window no less with lights point towards it. That’s what I am talking about! We may not win Ca. but we are going to scare the hell out of them.

      So true. I would say the #NeverTrumpers are the Avengers. Paul Ryan and his ilk are possible Quislings, maybe Persecutors. I’d say Bush and Romney are in different camps of Persecutors.

      I had a discussion with a Catholic friend of mine, who’ll probably never talk to me anymore. But it’s no loss.

      The basis of the discussion was that video by Dinesh D’Souza, where D’Souza discusses how Christians MUST vote in the election, even if they don’t like Trump, because of the danger Hillary poses to our faith.

      The response? He’s gonna vote his conscience and vote third party. Even after discussing Trump and the dangers posed by Hillary, he’s sticking with his decision. And I don’t respect him for it. In fact, I’m very angry at a lot of Catholics who are playing the moral equivalency card and refusing to acknowledge the danger Hillary poses, instead clinging to the argument that “they’re both equally bad choices.”

      No, they’re not. But it appears some aren’t listening. He expects persecution, but doesn’t seem to grasp the seriousness of how bad it’ll be.

        I know many Catholics who are like that. They have been like that in EVERY election. No candidate can ever be good enough for them. It is more frustrating this year because we know the stakes are higher than ever.

    Movie was great…. inspired and emotional by the end… and I’m not even an American (I can empathize)… should be a powerful message for (non brain dead) Americans.

    “In various sports, a forfeit is a method in which a match automatically ends and the forfeiting team loses.

    “There are two distinct forms of forfeiture. One occurs when a team is unable to meet the basic standards for playing the game, either before the game begins or as a result of actions that happen during the match. In such a case, the team not forfeiting wins the match. The other is punitive forfeiture, in which a team has been found to have broken the rules of a sanctioning body during a match they have won and must have the results stricken from the record; whether or not the other team receives a win in such a case depends on the rules of that body.


    • zephyrbreeze says:

      Even FIFA gets it. From their rule book. Blatant cheating should be disqualifying.

      Section 10.
      Unlawfully influencing match results

      Anyone who conspires to influence the result of a match in a manner
      contrary to sporting ethics shall be sanctioned with a match suspension or a
      ban on taking part in any football-related activity as well as a fine of at least
      CHF 15,000. In serious cases, a lifetime ban on taking part in any football-
      related activity shall be imposed.
      In the case of a player or official unlawfully influencing the result of a match
      in accordance with par. 1, the club or association to which the player or official belongs may be fined. Serious offences may be sanctioned with expulsion from
      a competition, relegation to a lower division, a points deduction and the return
      of awards.

    BREAKING: Trump takes the lead in APA polling aggregation. Last week ended with Clinton up +0.3. As of 10/23, Trump is up in the polling average +1.1. Enthusiasm favors Trump +5.7. APA only averages the most historically accurate polls:


    Early returns still looking very good in Florida, Ohio, and possibly Nevada. Could the tide be turning?

    Ureleased Evidence Against Bill Clinton Is Still Sealed In Congress

    “House Judiciary Committee Chairman Henry Hyde hired Chicago attorney and Democrat David Schippers to be the Chief Investigative Counsel to help prosecute the committee’s case against Clinton. Schippers described to American Family Radio’s Sandy Rios Friday how the evidence against Clinton was stored and studied by Congress at the time.

    Hillary Clinton Is Really The ‘Evil’ One Of The Two

    “[Democrat] Schippers, who is legally gagged from revealing what he learned about Hillary Clinton from the evidence in the room but can talk about his own investigation, said that she was “all over” her husband’s scandals.

    “From our investigation, she was all over it. She was the one who was orchestrating all the attacks on the people that she called ‘the bimbos.’ ‘There was another bimbo eruption so let’s go and destroy them.’ I talked to every one of those ‘bimbos,’” Schippers said.

    “And they were decent honorable good women. All of them were in some way threatened or attacked directly and I’ll tell you something. At one point someone said to me, ‘My God, how evil is that guy?’ and I said, ‘No, no he’s kind of a…boob. He just can’t control himself.” He added, “’But if you want to talk about real evil, it’s her.’ It was a terrible time. She was the one that did everything to destroy the women.”

    Read it all… we have to have term limits.

    I suppose it’s only coincidence since WikiLeaks and all this stuff began in earnest there haven’t been any riots by Soros-controlled groups such as oBLM. They know it’s close and people are tired of that stuff – it’s proof the Clinton machine and their cronies have been controlling a lot of the race riots recently.

    LEAKED CLINTON INTERNAL DOCUMENT: Discourage Trump Supporters with Bogus Polls and Declaring Election Over
    We all knew the corrupt media polls were BS.
    Now thanks to Wikileaks we know our assumptions were correct.
    The media was working with Hillary Clinton to release bogus weighted polls that show Hillary ahead of Trump.

    And then step two was to declare the election over.


  35. Pls tell DJT to request that it is vitally important to winning & to counteract DJT dubious & infamous decades of his myriad female associations/reported misbehavior of women history & MSM successful presentations of current negative perception, regardless if each wiman lied or not… DJT wife & son need to appear & address each & every rally & press conference…that is if they are serious about demonstrating their support, love of USA, father & husband & becoming our next 1st lady & our next 1st son of POTUS TRUMP2016. Only solid, authentic, heartfelt original speeches & constant appearances in next 11 rallies, by Ivanka, Don Jr. , Eric along w/Melania & Barron at each & every rally & presser.. can turn current: strong, pervasive, negative perception of DJT woman abuse issues around for the vital DJT 2016 1-shot at winning. Next FIRST FAMILY need to appear happily supportive & together.
