The "stamina," the "look": A new poll suggests voters are buying in to Donald Trump's insinuations about Hillary Clinton's health. They're ignoring the medical reports. Voters — especially men — have more confidence that Trump is healthy enough for the presidency than Clinton, according to the Associated Press-GfK poll.
Even before the presidential primaries reached fever pitch earlier this year, pundits declared Democrat Hillary Clinton her party’s inevitable nominee and predicted she’d go on to win the general election. But with the election just over a month away, Republican Donald Trump’s odds keep getting better and better.
A CNN/ORC poll released shortly after last night’s debate found that Hillary Clinton scored a clear victory over her rival Donald Trump. One problem – the survey sample included 41% Democrats compared to just 26% Republicans. While the consensus opinion appears to be that Clinton won on points but Trump achieved his mission of appearing electable, the gross bias exhibited in CNN’s sampling – along with moderator Lester Holt’s failure to ask Hillary any tough questions – will fuel accusations made by Trump supporters that the entire race is being rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton.
The existence of MK-ULTRA is fairly well-known, but most people don’t know just how crazy the details were. CIA agents did some absolutely insane things with LSD. It’s not entirely clear that the government actually learned anything, but they definitely got some incredible stories out of it.
Could we have a second Jacksonian Revolution? That depends on whether the American people trust Donald Trump to lead one. Jackson’s policies were controversial at the time, and are still vigorously debated by historians, but Jackson rocked the political establishment and made government more accountable to the people.
Since 2000, we’ve had eight years of a Republican president, eight years of a Democrat president, with both parties having control of Congress at various points over the sixteen years. The national debt, after 211 years of this country’s existence, was $5.7 trillion in 2000. Both parties are responsible for the 342% increase over the last sixteen years to $19.5 trillion. Democrats agreed to never end warfare in exchange for Republican support for an expansion of the entitlement state. Meanwhile, the country’s GDP only rose 79% over the same time frame.
The performance put Trump on track to win the presidency in November, Adams wrote. "But the most interesting question has to do with what problem both of them were trying to solve with the debate. Clinton tried to look healthy, and as I mentioned, I don't think she completely succeeded. But Trump needed to solve exactly one problem: Look less scary. Trump needed to counter Clinton's successful branding of him as having a bad temperament to the point of being dangerous to the country. Trump accomplished exactly that."
The old Soviet Union was notoriously reluctant to ever acknowledge serious government errors, but its propaganda machinery was of mediocre quality, routinely ridiculed both in the West and among its own citizens. Surely, their Politburo members and Pravda editors would have been green with envy at how easily our own American Regime and its media minions suppressed the true story of TWA Flight 800, shot down by a missile just twelve minutes after it departed JFK Airport in New York City.
The Wells Fargo bank account scandal took center stage in the news last week and in all likelihood will continue to make headlines for many weeks to come. What Wells Fargo employees did in opening bank accounts without customers’ authorization was obviously wrong, but in true Washington fashion, the scandal is being used to deflect attention away from larger, more enduring, and more important scandals.
It is important to recognize that only foolish progressives actually take Clinton’s claims at face value. Clinton essentially seeks to characterize a large subset of conservatives as narrow minded when she mentions the “deplorables.” But, it is how she defines “narrow minded” that is the crux of the thing.
“A republic, if you can keep it.” is the way that Dr. Benjamin Franklin answered somebody who wanted to know what kind of new government we had. In this instance, “keeping” means “defending”, or else we’ll all be living under Sharia Law before our grandchildren grow up. -- There are many reasons Hillary must go to prison, but her advocacy of gun control is the most important.
