June 24th, 2016
The movie Independence Day: Resurgence opens in theaters today. It’s about an alien invasion. Yesterday, the Supreme Court of the United States blocked Barack Obama’s illegal illegal immigration diktat. Also yesterday, the British people voted to declare today “Independence Day” from the Brussels bureaucrats in order to stop an alien invasion of Europe.
Yesterday’s stunning events are lessons for the wise and slaps for the foolish. For Hillary2016 the lessons are a future of menace. For Donald J. Trump the future looks bright and informs him to continue to follow his instincts.
Yesterday morning Donald J. Trump was under attack, again, for going to Scotland to tend to his golf course instead of staying home to tinker with his campaign and especially to raise money. Today, Donald J. Trump will appear a genius for flying right to the heart of the worldwide storm. When Donald J. Trump speaks today the world will listen because not only is Trump exactly where a leader should be, Donald J. Trump is in many ways the father of the Brexit.
Trump made a brief declaration that if he were British he would vote for Brexit. This contrasted with Barack Obama who made threats against Britain if it decided to vote for the Brexit. Trump’s real contribution to Brexit is his courageous use of English to denounce the threats posed by illegal immigration as well as the need for a nation to control its borders and control immigration into the country.
The Brexit won because of the immigration issue. The British people understood they lost control of their country to bureaucrats from Brussels and the British people understood their country’s continued membership in the EU would force them to take in millions of Muslims from Turkey.
What are the lessons for Hillary2016? First, don’t believe any of the polls. Hillary2016 should not believe the betting odds either. Hillary2016 should not be lulled by establishment endorsements either. As in the 2014 elections in the U.S. the polls on Brexit were wrong. The betting odds were even more mistaken and more consistently mistaken. The establishment of businesses, institutions, “thought leaders”, you name it, all opposed Brexit and threatened destruction if the British voted for Brexit. The fear mongering did not work.
Donald J. Trump Brexit won.
Hillary2016 or whoever runs against Trump should read the polls and add 5 or six points to Trump’s totals. That’s not affirmative action for Trump. The 5 or 6 point edge for Trump is because voters have learned to lie to the pollsters if the opposition will scream “racist” or “nativist” or whatever the insult of the day is. Voters have learned to lie to pollsters and tell the truth in the ballot box. The stunning Brexit vote is further proof of the failure of polling in a political climate wherein thugs and race-baiters rule.
Second, Hillary Clinton needs to return to sanity. Hillary used to be sane on immigration. It wasn’t so long ago that Hillary sounded a great deal like Donald J. Trump on immigration:
We frequently hear from our readers, many of whom have been with us since 2007 in strong support of Hillary Clinton, that we should not believe Hillary as the “Obama third term” because she is obviously lying. That’s an argument we tend to believe, we don’t believe anyone can believe the nonsense coming out of Hillary these days, but we don’t think “vote for her because she is lying” is a strong argument in favor of any candidate.
We think it is better to be forthright, even if you get in trouble telling the truth, than playing cute. In the age of Youtube, cute don’t sell when soundbites can be stitched together.
So why would Hillary decry the Supreme Court decision blocking Barack Obama’s illegal illegal immigration diktats? That first video is Hillary as Trump before Trump2016 yet Hillary now pretends to be the illegal immigration savior. Why? It is not a winning strategy. Ask David Cameron. Ask everyone who opposed Brexit. Ask Jeb Bush. Ask Marco Rubio. Ask Lindsey Graham.
Brexit is a wake up call for Hillary Clinton to stop empowering the rancid Barack Obama:
LONDON — British voters didn’t just shock the world and the financial markets by voting to leave the European Union hours ago: They also ignored President Barack Obama, handed Hillary Clinton a potential economic burden and injected new energy into the populist currents roiling politics on both sides of the Atlantic. [snip]
In addition to volatility hitting U.S. markets, the surprise win for the Leave side is likely to ripple through the 2016 presidential campaign. The Brexit vote became largely a referendum on elites and immigration, the same themes likely Republican nominee Donald Trump has put at the center of his bid for the White House. Trump, who spoke favorably of Brexit, is likely to seize on the results as vindication — but it could also highlight concerns that a glib reality TV star might not be ready to handle the demands of the Oval Office.
The result could also suggest that polls showing a lead for presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton are underestimating the extent to which voters across Western democracies are fed up with career politicians and concerned about Islamic terrorism and immigration. UK polls and online betting markets heading into the Brexit vote appeared to show a small but solid leave for Remain, similar to the leads Clinton holds in most U.S. surveys.
The larger issue for the Clinton campaign will be potential economic fallout from the UK’s decision to leave the EU. Indeed, if the economic predictions leading up to Thursday’s vote turn out to be accurate, get ready for a Brexit-fueled economic slowdown that could bleed into the presidential race. [snip]
A new recession, if it happens, could hand Trump a political gift — allowing him to bash Obama and by extension Clinton for driving the U.S. economy into a ditch.
Politico has fever dreams that the Brexit could “highlight concerns that a glib reality TV star” (which is how Big Media slobs and the establishment sneer at Trump, causing voters to support Trump even more) will be somehow hurt by an issue he was right about – or that Trump will not be viewed as sufficiently conversant on the economy even though in polls Trump is tops on the economy. Lesson for Trump is to continue to ignore Big Media and continue to follow his instincts to tell the truth with brutal English.
The new Battle of Britain is over. The British decided to Make Britain Great Again. Great Britain is, once again.
Now the battle for America will be decided.
June 21st, 2016
An illegal alien from Britain tried to kill Donald J. Trump, a Member of Parliament was stabbed and shot to death in Britain, a Muslim terrorist killed dozens of people in a gay night club in Florida, an up and coming talented young Hollywood star whom we liked a lot was accidentally killed by his own car, Hillary Clinton gave another speech attacking Trump, Trump will give another speech attacking Hillary, Corey Lewandowski was fired by Trump from the campaign, Barack Obama is “No Drama Obama” when speaking about Muslim terrorists but emotionally enraged when trash talking Trump, Hillary raised a whole lot of money in May, Trump campaign coffers are almost empty, the Attorney General tried to hide a transcript of the Muslim terrorists calls by releasing a partial transcript and in the end had to cave and release the entire transcript which in itself is a lie because the word “Allah” was changed to “God” as if God and Allah are the same. That about sums up the news “noise” from recent days.
Frankly, all we are watching with genuine interest is the Brexit vote because that will actually be something not just a bunch of noise. There will be a lot of noise made by Big Media after the vote as there has been a lot of noise before the vote. Last week when the woman Member of Parliament was killed, the joy from the “remain” campaign could almost be felt. Every attempt to exploit her death to benefit the “remain” campaign has been made. The immediate polling looked dire for Brexit.
But the immediate polling is generally not ones we trust. Best to wait. Some polls, along with the overwhelming Big Media narrative, showed Brexit weakening, other polls showed Brexit gaining strength despite the brutal killing and its exploitation by David Cameron and the “remain” campaign. Polling released today has Brexit once again with momentum and behind by only one point now, 45% to 44%. Not that these polls should be trusted. Voters who don’t want to be called “racist” or “Nazis” or “haters” have learned to lie to pollsters and tell the truth only in the polling booth. That’s why the last British elections did not at all reflect what the polls forecast.
The same poll foolishness on Brexit can be said about Donald J. Trump polls. But before we get to Trump news, a little bit more on Brexit, and Trump, from Trump hater Tim Stanley:
The so-called Brexit has turned into a referendum on British identity, a debate about sovereignty and immigration that taps into all of Trump’s major themes. As such, the outcome will likely reveal the potential and the limits of angry conservatism — the kind of conservatism that repulses at least as much as it excites.
The EU is not a left/right issue in Britain. Support and opposition cuts across traditional partisanships. The basic arguments are these: the “Remain” camp believes a little democracy is worth sacrificing to be part of the European single market, while “Leave” believes Britain doesn’t get enough out of the bargain to justify being governed by foreign bureaucrats.
When the campaign officially began in April, Remain organizers had a clear advantage. They rolled out one expert after another to argue that leaving the EU would trigger a recession and give courage to the West’s enemies. Even Barack Obama said that Britain would go to “the back of the queue” when it came to seeking trade deals. [snip]
“Leave” cleverly let Remain exhaust itself. Then it hit back. It argued that Britain couldn’t control its borders so long as it is a member of the EU, and that Brexit would allow the government to shut the door to cheap European workers. This was the equivalent of Trump’s promise to build a wall along the Mexican border — and it worked. Leave surged in the polls. Studies showed that those who thought the referendum was about the economy still backed Remain. Those who thought it was about immigration were coalescing around Leave. [skip]
Leave wants to put the interests of the British people first, which has led others to accuse it of nativism. And, most important, its coalition is Trump-ish in character. It combines ordinarily Left-wing working-class Britons who feel oppressed by globalization, middle-class Right-wing patriots, and a sprinkling of mega-wealthy businessmen — all united by a profound belief that whatever they might be, they are definitely not the establishment.
This is a populist conservative revolt among people who feel they have been misled and misruled for too long. They are skeptical of experts, because they’ve so often been wrong, and immune to warnings of economic risk because they have lived with risk their entire lives.
This past weekend Big Media declared “it’s over for Brexit”. Not so much now. We’ll see on Thursday.
Likewise, all Big Media has been gazooking about this weekend is “it’s over for Trump” for the billionth time. For the billionth time, it is clear that it is far from over for Trump. If anything, now that we celebrate the return of Summer… it might once again be Summer of Trump.
Summer of Trump just might be back in full heat wave mode:
A new Morning Consult poll shows national security is back at the forefront of voters’ minds following the mass shooting in Orlando that left dozens dead and injured.
In a national survey taken in the days after Omar Mateen’s attack on Pulse, a gay nightclub, almost three out of 10 voters (29 percent) said security was their top issue under consideration when casting their vote — a 10-point increase from a poll in early June. Similar spikes in voters’ concerns about national security were observed following the attacks in Paris, San Bernardino and Brussels. [snip]
In a head-to-head matchup with presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Trump is gaining ground. He still trails Clinton 42 percent to 40 percent, which is within the margin of error for the poll. He has closed the gap by 3 percentage points from Morning Consult’s previous poll, when he trailed Clinton by 5 points, 42 percent to 37 percent. [snip]
The recent terror attacks also appear to have a strong effect on how voters feel about the country in general. Three-fourths of voters polled say things in the country have pretty seriously gotten off the wrong track. That number, 75 percent, is higher than the 74 percent recorded in Morning Consult polling on Dec. 6, 2015, immediately after the San Bernardino attack.
The national polls are mostly noise. The state polls too are mostly noise but less so. The polls mostly show a race that is within the margin of error. We’ll wait for after the two national conventions to really give a fig about the polls.
There will be lots of “noise” heard until the vote this November. The Corey Lewandowski firing and the “missed opportunities” by Trump to talk about the Muslim Terrorist transcript and the “Allah” switch with “God” by the Obama gangsters sympathetic to the “Allah” religion are an example of the noise to come. Another example of “noise” is the Latino radio host who told Hillary he will vote for her but that “My father’s voting for Trump because he says he can’t trust you. My mother says you’re a crook and my brother says you should go to jail.”
The “noise” will include much of what the candidates say and do before the national conventions. What will matter?
This will be a “change” election or a “stay the course” election – that is what matters. We believe it is a “change” election.
“Change” or “stay the course”? If you believe, and events prove you correct, that the economy will go into a boom the electorate will note approvingly – and you believe and events do not contradict you, that there will be no national security emergencies at home or abroad – the Obama Dimocrat will win.
If you believe, and events prove you correct, that the Obama economy sucks and the public knows it, that the country is going in the wrong direction, that Muslim terrorism will strike again before the election, that illegal and legal immigration will continue to drive down wages and pose threats both criminal and economic – then Donald J. Trump will win.
Ignore the noise. Mourn the young when they die or are killed, and the old when they have not lived. Make sure you squeeze every moment from life – the rest is just distant noise.
June 15th, 2016
Update: A British Member of Parliament was shot today. Initial reports are the vicious shooting is related to the Brexit vote and the shooter might be a Brexit supporter. Both sides of Brexit have temporarily suspended their campaigns days before next week’s vote.
The shooting confirms the Bloomberg headline Brexit Battle Gets Bitter With Polls Showing ‘Leave’ Holds Lead. “Bitter” indeed!
It’s about punctuation. This June will witness the penultimate political upheaval of generations. This June’s political earthquake will only be topped in importance by the American elections in November.
The “Brexit” vote, whether “Br”itain should “exit” the European Union, will take place this June 23. The Brexit vote is about punctuation – an exclamation point or a question mark.
The chorus of that most British glorious hymn “Rule Brittania” makes this proud boast: Rule Brittania! Britannia rule the waves. Britons never, never, never shall be slaves. The Brexit vote will determine the truthfulness of that British claim. In short, the Brexit vote will determine whether “Britons never, never, never shall be slaves” ends with an exclamation point or a question mark.
We Americans know a bit about punctuation in songs, which our cousins across the pond might wish to consider. Our national anthem, alone amongst national anthems, begins with a question and ends with a question. Our national anthem begins with the question Oh, say can you see, by the dawn’s early light, what so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming? We end our homage to our history with O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave – o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave? This year, in June and November, the English speaking peoples, that lead the freedom loving West, will either reaffirm that the star-spangled banner and the Union Jack wave over a brave and free peoples prepared never to surrender our liberties and way of life, or sink beneath the waves.
Despite threats from Britain hating Barack Obama, and a campaign of lurid fear-mongering from the opponents of the Brexit, the freedom loving inhabitants of the British Isles appear prepared to assert they “never, never, never shall be slaves.” The British people, according to the latest polls, appear to reject a modern day version of feudalism in which they will become vassals and England a fiefdom of continental lords.
In the former colonies, set free by the Declaration of Independence in 1776, the American people will likewise be tested. Make America Great Again! Or, “make America great again?”
Donald J. Trump supports the Brexit. The issues that have propelled Trump forward despite near united opposition from Big Media, the opposition party, and the establishment of his own party are the issues that roil the world. Issues such as the murderous tide of Muslim terrorism, open borders bereft of guards, the soft invasion of the West by Islamic immigrants who do not wish to assimilate, wage depression desired by elite economic institutions who promote illegal immigration, all resonate on both sides of the pond. Even in continental Europe, whose elites welcome the destruction of their societies with capitulation to Islam, the resistance is rising.
On June 23, 2016, Britain will either once again become Great Britain or become a vassal state.
* * * * * *
All too often the West wakes up to peril only when it is almost too late. It is already almost too late to save the West but there is always hope when sleeping giants awake. The giants usually sleep because voices within, aided by voices without, sing lullabies of appeasement and weakness. At this perilous point in the history of the English speaking peoples and the entire freedom loving West an unexpected voice sounds the alarm. The Dalai Lama:
BERLIN: Tibetan Spiritual leader Dalai Lama said in an interview published that Europe has accepted “too many” refugees, and that they should eventually return to help rebuild their home countries.
“When we look into the face of every single refugee, especially the children and women, we can feel their suffering,” said the Tibetan spiritual leader, who has himself lived in exile for over half a century.
“A human being who is a bit more fortunate has the duty to help them. On the other hand, there are too many now,” he said, according to the German translation of the interview in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
“Europe, for example Germany, cannot become an Arab country,” he added with a laugh, the daily reported. “Germany is Germany.
“There are so many that in practice it becomes difficult.”
The Muslim and Buddhist worlds are at war in places such as Sri Lanka. Perhaps that is what motivates the Dalai Lama. Or, perhaps it is the realization that, as we have written, the West is under threat of a “soft invasion” and a successful Muslim destruction of the pluralistic West will lead to theocratic war against all religions including Buddhism.
It is not immigration alone that propels the worldwide revolt of the common man and woman. Terror attacks in America, France, Brussels, and elsewhere add to the crisis. Leaders such as Donald J. Trump and Boris Johnson in Britain provide the opportunity for the rise of the revolutionary fervor.
In Britain, Big Media institutions are finally listening to the people. Today The Spectator declared for freedom:
Since 1975 the EU has mutated in exactly the way we then feared and now resembles nothing so much as the Habsburg Empire in its dying days. A bloated bureaucracy that has outgrown all usefulness. A parliament that represents many nations, but with no democratic legitimacy. Countries on its periphery pitched into poverty, or agitating for secession. The EU’s hunger for power has been matched only by its incompetence. The European Union is making the people of our continent poorer, and less free.
This goes far beyond frustration at diktats on banana curvature. The EU has started to deform our government. Michael Gove revealed how, as a cabinet member, he regularly finds himself having to process edicts, rules and regulations that have been framed at European level. Laws that no one in Britain had asked for, and which no one elected to the House of Commons has the power to change. What we refer to as British government is increasingly no such thing. It involves the passing of laws written by people whom no one in Britain elected, no one can name and no one can remove. [snip]
With the EU’s fundamental lack of democracy comes complacency on the part of its leaders and the corruption of those around them — which has led us to the present situation. Voters are naturally concerned about the extraordinary rise of immigration, and their governments’ inability to control it. Free movement of people might have been a laudable goal before the turn of the century, when the current global wave of migration started. But today, with the world on the move, the system strikes a great many Europeans as madness. The EU’s failure to handle immigration has encouraged the people trafficking industry, a global evil that has led to almost 3,000 deaths in the Mediterranean so far this year. [snip]
Unable to make a positive case for staying in the EU, he instead tells us that Britain is trapped within it and that the penalties for leaving are too severe. His scare stories, peppered with made-up statistics, have served only to underline the emptiness of the case for remaining. It also represents a style of politics that many find repugnant. The warnings from the IMF and OECD and other acronyms have served only to reinforce the caricature of a globalised elite telling the governed what to think.
In 1776 the American colonists faced the same fear mongering, the same staggering fight against world powers, the same questions faced by free peoples. Our answer was the great Declaration. Independence! We hold these truths to be self-evident…
Britain and those in favor of Brexit need to understand the full impact of remaining in the tentacles of the Feudal Union. Some of the dangers are purposefully kept secret:
British voters are being “conned” by Brussels officials who are keeping plans for a European army secret until after the referendum, leading Tories have claimed.
Liam Fox, the former defence secretary who served under David Cameron, told The Telegraph that the ambitions showed the EU is wedded to the “dangerous fantasy” of creating a single defence force.
Another eurosceptic Tory MP said voters were being “deceived” and “hoodwinked” about the true scale of the EU’s drive to create a single army.
The backlash came as it emerged plans to move towards the creation of a European army are being kept secret from British voters until the day after next month’s referendum.
Live Free or Die is the official motto of New Hampshire. Increasingly, it is the theory behind the Brexit vote. The British Sun:
We urge our readers to beLEAVE in Britain and vote to quit the EU on June 23
THIS is our last chance to remove ourselves from the undemocratic Brussels machine … and it’s time to take it
WE are about to make the biggest political decision of our lives. The Sun urges everyone to vote LEAVE.
We must set ourselves free from dictatorial Brussels.
Throughout our 43-year membership of the European Union it has proved increasingly greedy, wasteful, bullying and breathtakingly incompetent in a crisis.
Next Thursday, at the ballot box, we can correct this huge and historic mistake.
It is our last chance. Because, be in no doubt, our future looks far bleaker if we stay in.
Outside the EU we can become richer, safer and free at long last to forge our own destiny — as America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and many other great democracies already do. And as we were the first to do centuries ago.
If we stay, Britain will be engulfed in a few short years by this relentlessly expanding German dominated federal state.
For all David Cameron’s witless assurances, our powers and values WILL be further eroded.
Staying in will be worse for immigration, worse for jobs, worse for wages and worse for our way of life. [snip]
To remain means being powerless to cut mass immigration which keeps wages low and puts catastrophic pressure on our schools, hospitals, roads and housing stock.
In every way, it is a bigger risk.
The Remain campaign, made up of the corporate establishment, arrogant europhiles and foreign banks, have set out to terrify us all about life outside the EU. [snip]
Vote Leave, and we will reassert our sovereignty — embracing a future as a self-governing, powerful nation envied by all.
We will re-establish the basic principle that we are governed by politicians we elect or eject every five years, not foreign bureaucrats.
Make Britain Great Again!
Make America Great Again!
But first, Make Britain Great Again!
On June 23, Great Britain returns.
June 13th, 2016
Update: The new Obama approved story line is “he killed because he was gay not because he was a Muslim terrorist!” Muslim terrorist ranks higher than gay in Obama world. It’s Obama Democrat versus Obama Democrat now. This will be the new line of defense for Muslim terrorist sympathizers at the Obama Democrat Party:
Mateen’s first wife, Sitora Yusufiy, 27, whom he met online in 2009 and married soon after, told Daily News his family think he murdered the 49 because he was in turmoil about who he really was – not because he was an Islamic extremist.
‘When we had gotten married, he confessed to me about his past — that was recent at that time – and that he very much enjoyed going to clubs and the nightlife,’ Yusufiy said.
‘So, I feel like it’s a side of him or a part of him that he lived but probably didn’t want everybody to know about.’
Yusufiy also spoke on a Brazilian TV station yesterday, joined by her fiance from the country, Marcio Dias.
Speaking Portuguese, he told the channel that Yusufiy told him Mateen had ‘gay tendencies’ and had been called gay in front of her on several occasions by his father.
He also said that she didn’t believe that Mateen’s supposed Islamic beliefs were at the root of his attack.
Michelle Obama will soon be crying on TV because the poor Muslim terrorist could not get a date with a man. Intelligent gay people won’t tolerate this protection of Muslim terrorism with a “blame the gay” libel.
In a lurid sense the Orlando Muslim Terrorist attack was an Obama supporter attacking other Obama supporters. Welcome to the world of Marxist contradiction and interest group politics.
If more evidence is needed of the utter stupidity of Hillary Clinton tying herself to Barack Obama and selling herself as the Obama Third Term, the latest Muslim Terrorist attack in Orlando is the latest pieces of evidence that Obama is the Kiss Of Death. What the Orlando Muslim Terrorist attack highlights is the bankruptcy of #Hillary2016’s interest group politics as a way to win an election in a year the public demands real CHANGE not false hope.
Consider the Muslim Terrorist attack in Orlando. Big Media is busy misdirecting attention along with #Hillary2016. The Muslim Terrorist killer was a registered Democrat busy attacking other alleged groups Big Media identifies as Democrats:
Daniel Gilroy said he worked the 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. shift with G4S Security at the south gate at PGA Village for several months in 2014-15. Mateen took over from him for a 3 to 11 p.m. shift.
Gilroy, a former Fort Pierce police officer, said Mateen frequently made homophobic and racial comments. Gilroy said he complained to his employer several times but it did nothing because he was Muslim.
The Orlando Muslim Terrorist hated blacks, gays, women, and apparently Latinos. Need we mention Jews? The Saturday night massacre was Democrat on Democrat violence. The Muslim Terrorist wasn’t fired because he was a Muslim. The Muslim Terrorist is a very Muslim man when it comes to the attitudes he shares with his fellow Muslims:
Law enforcement sources have identified the gunman in the Orlando terror attack as Omar Mateen, the child of Afghan migrants, according to CBS News.
Between 2001 and 2013, the U.S. permanently resettled nearly 30,000 Afghan migrants on green cards. According to Pew, nearly all Muslims in Afghanistan (99%) support sharia law as official law.
As legal immigrants, these migrants will be granted lifetime resettlement privileges will be given automatic work permits, welfare access, and the ability to become voting citizens.
Recently Donald J. Trump questioned the fairness of a federal judge of Mexican heritage presiding over a lawsuit in light of the fact that Donald J. Trump has been outspoken about illegal immigrants from everywhere, including Mexico, and the judge has links to many groups that advocate for Mexican illegals. That Sonia Sotomayor and much of the left touts “diversity” in order to bring different heritage groups to influence court decisions as decision makers seems to be exactly what Trump has been referencing. If the point of “diversity” is to praise the differences various life experiences from various heritages bring to institutions, how then can Trump be attacked for stating that sometimes those “differences” might be impediments to fairness or the perception of fairness. But fairness only works in one direction these days and it is usually against common sense.
Common sense has been discarded by many. How else to explain the various reactions to the Orlando Muslim Terrorist? The maligned Pamela Geller notes some of the crazy:
James Comey, in a press conference just moments ago, said the FBI was “confused” as to Omar Mateen’s motivations. The jihadi made three different calls to 9/11. In his 9/11 call, Mateen said he was doing this for ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Mateen also said he was doing this in support of the Boston jihad bombers and the American suicide bomber who blew himself up in Syria (for al Nusra -an al Qaeda group). So Comey said the FBI is confused as to who he was supporting. I find this statement shocking. These Islamic groups are waging jihad in the cause of Islam. That is what Mateen is supporting. 15 years after 9/11, the FBI director is confused about the jihadi’s motivations?
President Obama said at a press conference earlier today that Omar Mateen was inspired by “extremist information.” That’s positively Goebblelseque.
During a special report Monday morning, President Barack Obama says investigators are still looking into the motivations of the shooter, including the fact that the shooting took place at a gay venue. (FOX 59)
Is it any wonder we are losing this war?
Comey went on to explain why FBI dropped the investigation into Omar Mateen. Mateen claimed to be aligned with Islamic terrorist groups and threatened co-workers. When the FBI questioned Mateen, he claimed his co-workers were picking on him “because he was Muslim.” The case the dropped.
Additionally, the FBI said they investigated Mateen for 10 months beginning in May 2013 after he made “inflammatory and contradictory statements” to co-workers. The FBI interviewed him twice.
He admitted to making the comments but said it was because his co-workers were racist and making fun of him because he was Muslim. (FOX News)
Islamophobia, a club Muslims wield to silence critics of Islam and stymie law enforcement.
Anyone remember “Clock Boy”? That was the Muslim student who carried what looked like a bomb into school. A good citizen reported that what turned out to be a digital clock stripped of it’s cover and stuffed into a briefcase, as appearing to be a bomb. The good citizen who “saw something” and said something followed the post 9/11 rule “if you see something, say something”. The good citizen was castigated and Clock Boy was hugged by Barack Obama (eventually Clock Boy went to Sudan with his family after denouncing America, only to beg to be allowed back in once they saw the hell hole Sudan is).
Good citizen Daniel Gilroy likewise reported the Muslim Terrorist only to be denounced as a “racist” and “Islamaphobe” to the FBI. After two – TWO – investigations of the Muslim Terrorist the FBI succumbed to political correctness. If the FBI cannot stop a Muslim Terrorist after two investigations, due to reports from good citizens, the FBI and the security of the nation are in great trouble. The trouble is at the top.
Into the mess walks in Hillary Rodham Clinton. Hillary Clinton is bereft of reason these days. Her embrace of Barack Obama and her campaign to become Obama’s Third Term is devoid of common sense. Consider Hillary Clinton’s statements on the Orlando Muslim Terror attack:
Hillary Clinton reacts to Orlando shooting: I won’t ‘declare war’ on a religion
While reaffirming her support to toughen up gun control efforts, Hillary Clinton also called upon the nation’s leaders to show “statesmanship” rather than politics following the nation’s deadliest shooting that took place over the weekend at a gay nightclub. [snip]
“All this talk and demagogy and rhetoric is not going to solve the problem. I’m not going to demonize and demagogue and declare war on an entire religion. That’s just plain dangerous and it plays into ISIS’s hands,” she said.
Clinton also urged the nation to reject calls by the powerful gun lobby and push for a ban on assault weapons.
“We can not fall into the trap set by the gun lobby that says if you can’t stop every shooting and every incident you shouldn’t try to stop any. That is not how laws work. It’s not common sense,” she said.
“We need to get these weapons of war off the streets. We had an assault weapons ban, it expired, and we need to reinstate it. From San Bernardino to Aurora, Colorado to Sandy Hook and now to Orlando, we have seen the devastation that these military style weapons cause,” the former secretary of state explained.
“We’re going to try to put a huge coalition together of all the groups, all the individuals who care about this issue, those who have been touched by it and try to get common sense gun safety reform passed in order to protect the people of our country.”
Hillary Clinton on Muslim Terror is devoid of sense. Paris, France has strict gun control but the Bataclan nightclub was attacked by Muslim Terrorist with guns. Muslim Terrorists do not care about gun control or injunctions against possession of bombs. Why then does Hillary Clinton babble about gun control after the Muslim Terrorist attack that killed blacks, gays, Latinos, young people, and yeah, presumably Jews?
Instead of gun control Hillary Clinton should explain the State Department connection to the Muslim Terrorist’s father. The Muslim Terrorist killer’s father supported the Taliban and there are plenty of questions and answers Hillary Clinton should provide on this relation. There’s also the reports that the Muslim Terrorist and his second wife plotted together, including a possible attack against Disney in Orlando. Common sense demands sharp questions and truthful answers.
Donald J. Trump is pure common sense:
Seizing on Sunday’s mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub, Donald Trump renewed his call for a ban on Muslims entering the United States and said he would take U.S. immigration policy “from totally incompetent to just the opposite.”
Trump continued the victory lap he began Sunday, touting his proposal to temporarily restrict Muslims from entering the U.S. as the only plan with any hope of keeping Americans safe. Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people in an Orlando gay nightclub, was born in the U.S. but Trump said Sunday’s attack would not have happened if the shooter’s family, including his father, who has expressed pro-Taliban sentiments in the past, had never been admitted into the country from Afghanistan.
“The current politically correct response cripples our ability to talk and to think and act clearly,” Trump said. “We’re not acting clearly. We’re not talking clearly. We’ve got problems. If we don’t get tough and if we don’t get smart and fast, we’re not going to have our country anymore. There will be nothing, absolutely nothing left.”
“We cannot talk around issues anymore. We have to address these issues head on. I called for a ban after San Bernardino. And was met with great scorn and anger,” he continued. “Many are saying that I was right to do so and although the pause is temporary, we must find out what is going on. We have to do it. It will be lifted, this ban, when and as a nation we’re in a position to properly and perfectly screen these people coming into our country. They’re pouring in and we don’t know what we’re doing.”
Donald Trump is pure common sense. If it talks like a treacherous duck, walks like a treacherous duck, it is a treacherous duck:
Trump attacks Obama: ‘He’s got something else in mind’
‘He doesn’t get it or he gets it better than anybody understands. It’s one or the other,’ the GOP’s presumptive nominee said.
Donald Trump stepped up his criticism of President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday, pointedly questioning Obama’s lack of willingness to call the act “radical Islamic terrorism” and insinuating that the president’s sympathies might lie elsewhere.
“He doesn’t get it or he gets it better than anybody understands. It’s one or the other,” Trump said of Obama on “Fox & Friends,” speaking on the phone. “And either one is unacceptable, No. 1, and No. 2, calling on another gun ban, I mean, this man has no clue.”
Trump again implied that the president was not a trustworthy leader who failed to prevent Omar Mateen, an apparently radicalized 29-year-old Florida man, from going on a shooting rampage at an Orlando nightclub early Sunday morning, killing 49 and injuring at least 53.
“We’re led by a man who is a very — look, we’re led by a man that either is, is not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind,” Trump said. “And the something else in mind, you know, people can’t believe it. People cannot — they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the ways he acts and can’t even mention the words radical Islamic terrorism. There’s something going on. It’s inconceivable.”
Donald J. Trump is an effective enemy of Muslim Terrorist killers. Donald J. Trump makes sense.
June 10th, 2016
Take your clothes off, pour sugar water over yourself, then visit a Zika mosquito swamp. That’s the Hillary2016 strategy.
An argument could be made that an endorsement of Hillary2016 by Barack Obama could have been useful early in the primary season. But now? No.
It’s mid June, election day is less than five months away. Now is not the time to embrace Barack Obama. In all honesty we don’t think it is ever the time to go near ol’ stinky, but there is scant evidence for an Obama hug at this point. Look at the news and see why.
George Soros, the leftist loon, is “shorting stocks, buying gold” because he thinks the Obama economy is in bad shape. Goldman Sachs predicts a “big market selloff” with no “place to hide”. The May jobs report was a catastrophe which even Hillary2016 found “disappointing”. The financial press optimistically declares a “summer panic” about to sweep the markets – and that’s without serious consideration of the big Brexit earthquake. Janus Capital is straight faced about what they see:
This is when Hillary Clinton decides to tour with the Zika mosquito? Winner? Donald J. Trump who has more evidence for his coming attack against Hillary as the “Obama Third Term”.
Is there a functioning brain at Hillary2016? No. Let’s look at the evidence.
For a long while now we have been assured that, as is traditional in presidential campaigns, Hillary would move to the left for the primaries then move to the center for the general. But if it is true that Hillary Clinton will campaign for, er, with Barack Obama in the coming weeks this is an indication that Hillary intends to go deeper and deeper into the fever Zika swamps of the left.
Why would Hillary embrace Obama now even more than she has embraced Obama throughout primary season? An argument could have been made that Obama would have helped Hillary finish off Bernie Sanders if Obama had endorsed Hillary early in the primary cycle. But now? When Hillary supposedly has defeated Bernie Sanders? Hillary doesn’t need Obama if we are to believe that Hillary has the delegates to nominate her.
Perhaps the consideration is party unity and solidify the “Obama coalition”? As we have argued since 2007 the “Obama coalition” is a joke audience more appropriate for a network TV programmer of a “situation comedy“. But even if the “Obama coalition” could be taken seriously the fact is that the monstrosity has been shattered. The young white voters that comprised the “Obama coalition” split to Bernie Sanders and that is why Hillary campaigned almost exclusively in black precincts in state after state as the only way to defeat Saint Bernard.
The facts about the abomination called the “Obama coalition” is even more dire for Hillary2016. Since 2007 we made the argument in many installments of “Mistake in ’08” that the Clinton coalition which focused on the white working class was the winning coalition. This week the New York Times shattered any delusion that we might have been wrong. Yup, it’s the white working class, stupid:
There Are More White Voters Than People Think. That’s Good News for Trump.
One of the biggest reasons Donald Trump is considered to be a long shot to win the presidency is the diversity of the country.As Joe Scarborough of MSNBC put it, “There are not enough white voters in America for Donald Trump to win while getting routed among minorities.”
But a growing body of evidence suggests that there is still a path, albeit a narrow one, for Mr. Trump to win without gains among nonwhite voters.New analysis by The Upshot shows that millions more white, older working-class voters went to the polls in 2012 than was found by exit polls on Election Day. This raises the prospect that Mr. Trump has a larger pool of potential voters than generally believed.
The race-baiters of the left who called Hillary and Bill Clinton “racists” in 2008 will, along with Hillary and Bill Clinton try to race-bait Trump on the basis of his appeal to white voters. But Trump’s appeal to Latinos and black voters is very surprising at this point and will likely increase, so the race-baiting will not work against Trump. Also, the registration efforts geared towards Latinos have thus far failed. And that New York Times article which corroborates our many articles on the importance of the white working class will not be shunted aside. Even the Trump haters at HotAir understand it’s significance. This latest analysis deserves a great deal of scrutiny from the dummies at Hillary2016:
The wider path may help explain why Mr. Trump is competitive in early general election surveys against Hillary Clinton. And it calls into question the prevailing demographic explanation of recent elections, which held that Barack Obama did very poorly among whites and won only because young and minority voters turned out in record numbers. This story line led Republicans to conclude that they had maximized their support from white voters and needed to reach out to Hispanics to win in 2016.
Those previous conclusions emerged from exit polls released on election night. The new data from the census, voter registration files, polls and the finalized results tells a subtly different story with potential consequences for the 2016 election.
The data implies that Mr. Obama was not as weak among white voters as typically believed. He fared better than his predecessors among white voters outside the South. Demographic shifts weren’t so important: He would have been re-elected even with an electorate as old and white as it was in 2004. Latino voters did not put Mr. Obama over the top, as many argued in the days after Mr. Obama’s re-election. He would have won even if he had done as poorly among Latino voters as John Kerry.
This is all good news for Mr. Trump. There’s more room for him to make gains among white working-class voters than many assumed — enough to win without making gains among nonwhite or college-educated white voters.
The post 2012 election analysis by the Republican Party was put together by Jeb Bush and Paul Ryan shills who sought to twist the direction of the GOP to a direction favorable to these hapless fools. Donald J. Trump did the smart thing and ignored that junk study in favor of a strong defense of the white working class and jobs, jobs, jobs. Jeb Bush and Paul Ryan drank their own bad data kool-aid and now Hillary Clinton is slurping the same poison:
When you hear about the demographic challenges facing the Republican Party, almost all of the data comes from exit polls: surveys conducted with tens of thousands of voters at precincts across the country on Election Day, along with a supplemental telephone survey with early voters.
The exit polls are excellent surveys. But like any survey, they’re imperfect. The problem is that analysts, including me, have treated the exit polls like a precise account of the electorate. [snip]
The voter file data used for analysis here comes from Catalist, a Democratic data firm that offers an academic subscription. Researchers have found that the data is unbiased and more accurate than public voting records.
These sources show a 2012 electorate that was far whiter, older and less educated than the exit polls indicated.
Over all, the exit polls suggest that 23 percent of voters in 2012 were white, over age 45 and without a college degree. Catalist puts this group at 29 percent, and the census at 30 percent — implying 10 million more voters than the 23 percent figure
This latest analysis has real world consequences in 2016 battleground states:
Take Ohio, where the exit polls show that the black share of the electorate increased by four percentage points to more than 15 percent of voters in 2012. If these figures are taken as precise, it would imply that nearly 250,000 more black voters turned out than in 2008, with the turnout reaching 88 percent of adult black citizens. There is no trace of this kind of surge in turnout in the actual result. The black turnout in Cleveland actually dropped — to 55 percent of adult citizens.
This type of story repeats itself across the battlegrounds. It also plays out with age, where the exit polls imply that youth turnout was higher than turnout among seniors; with education, where the exit polls show that more college graduates voted than actually live in America; or Hispanics, where the exit polls show that white and Hispanic turnout was nearly equal, despite decades of evidence to the contrary.
We can hear the howls of those that ask us why we can’t “give Hillary her day.” But dumb is dumb. Hillary Clinton’s embrace of Barack Obama is plain ol’ dumb. Dumb. Dumb:
The larger number of white working-class voters implies that Democrats are far more dependent on winning white working-class voters, and therefore more vulnerable to a populist candidate like Mr. Trump. [snip]
Mr. Obama’s dependence among white voters might seem surprising in light of the 2012 postelection consensus. But it won’t be surprising if you think just a little further back — to the pre-election story line. Mr. Obama’s advantage heading into the election was thought to be a “Midwestern Firewall” — a big edge in Midwestern battlegrounds where white working-class voters supported the auto bailout and were skeptical of Mr. Romney, who was criticized for his time at Bain Capital.
The pre-election story line was tossed aside when the national exit polls showed an electorate that was even more diverse than it was in 2008, while showing Mr. Obama faring worse among white voters than any Democrat since Walter Mondale in 1984.
Mitt Romney and John McCain lost because they did not fight against Barack Obama strongly. Mitt Romney and John McCain lost because they did not inspire the white working class to vote in great numbers for them. Mitt Romney in particular was too weak and did not take on Barack Obama. Barack Obama got enough white working class votes to win over weak Romney and McCain. The white working class wanted a leader and all they got was a dog on the car roof.
All the “demographics” future nonsense the left deluded itself with has now deluded Hillary2016. There is not a functioning brain at Hillary2016 that read the New York Times blockbuster report. Hillary Clinton needs to embrace the Clinton coalition and the white working class component of that winning coalition – not the Zika virus Obola Obama. The demographics nonsense we debunked in 2007 is now debunked by the New York Times:
Demographics Overrated. The data implies that demographic shifts played a somewhat smaller role in Mr. Obama’s re-election than the postelection narrative suggested. Even if the electorate were as old and as white as it was in 2004, Mr. Obama would have won, because of the gains he made among white voters in states like New Mexico, Colorado and Iowa.
Hispanic voters played only a modest role in Mr. Romney’s defeat. They cost him Florida — a must-win state for Republicans, but also the closest contest. Elsewhere, Mr. Obama would have easily survived even if Mr. Romney had equaled George W. Bush’s 2004 share of Hispanic voters.
All of this is good news for a Republican who intends to win with greater strength among white working-class voters, like Mr. Trump. [snip]
To win, Mr. Trump will need to make gains among white working-class voters. The earliest evidence, and polling this early can be quite inaccurate, suggests that he is doing that handily.
Hillary2016 needs white voters. The very voters Trump appeals to much more than Mitt Romney and John McCain. So why campaign as an Obama third term with Barack Obama? It’s not as if Hillary will be running against McCain or Romney. If Hillary Clinton is nominated, her opponent will not be cowed by “racist” taunts nor embarrassed to court the white working class vote.
Have we changed our opinion that Hillary Clinton will not be nominated? No. If anything when dealing with a treacherous viper like Barack Obama and his lantern-jawed wife we immediately suspect that what Obama says is the opposite of what Obama does. We’re not alone. At the Obama supporter website Althouse, the thinking is “I think this Barack Obama campaigning for Hillary is cover. She’s going to get indicted.” “He knows she’s going to get indicted. He’ll be able to say, ‘I didn’t know. Why would I be campaigning for her?'”
Picture this scenario: Just before the convention, or during the convention, something happens to derail Hillary Clinton. Maybe that’s why after Obama met with Bernie Sanders yesterday he then met with the Attorney General to lynch Hillary? At this point, after something derails Hillary, Bernie Sanders says he should be the nominee. Joe Biden says he should be the nominee. Corrupt Cuomo and others think they should be the nominee. Up steps Barack and says “I supported Hillary (after she had the delegates and did not need me) and campaigned with Hillary. But Hillary has got to go. We also cannot afford the chaos of so many candidates running. So here’s my candidate which I have not plotted for years to nominate no matter what HillaryIs44 says!” Barack can add “Hillary will not object to this and as proof look how I stole delegates from her in 2008 and the bitch still backed me.”
Of course it might be easier to replace Hillary after the convention, away from the public eye, as was done to Tom Eagleton.
Before, during, after the convention, all Hillary Clinton can expect from Barack Obama is treachery. Why Hillary Clinton embraces this bloodsucking mosquito and his disaster economic failures is a mystery.
Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his enemies. Obama cannot be trusted.
