    Former Mexican President Vicente Fox on Tuesday slammed Donald Trump's performance in the first presidential debate and warned that the GOP nominee's behavior should alarm world leaders. "We think he’s a danger. He’s a threat to the world," Fox, who watched the debate on Mexican television, told The Washington Post. "When he speaks about geo-economic situation and the geo-political situation and terrorism, he’s absolutely ignorant, and he’s only provoking us democratic leaders from around the world to reject everything he’s proposing. He is an imperialistic gringo." In contrast, Fox said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton looked "very presidential." "My impression...

    I Score the First Debate Posted September 27th, 2016 @ 8:27am Trump and Clinton debated each other for the first time last night. Here’s how I score the night. Clinton won on points. She had more command of the details and the cleaner answers. Trump did a lot of interrupting and he was defensive. If this were a college debate competition, Clinton would be declared the winner. I call that victory on the 2D chess board. But voters don’t care about facts and debating style. They care about how they feel. So let’s talk about that. For starters, Trump and...

    By now, except in the Hillary Clinton propaganda mills, it is pretty well established that Donald Trump is going to get at least 20% of the Black vote while Clinton can’t break 75% with African Americans. This is a full 15 points below the bare minimum she needs to have a chance to win in November. Nevertheless, the crafty Goebbelsesque media presents this and other “horse races” within this election as one requiring Trump to get 51% or be defeated. This same twisting of the truth would produce a headline saying, “Trump down in 8 of 9 important states,” which...

    Dear Mr. Trump: I would wager that you are not one who suffers lengthy preambles gladly, so I will get straight to the point: You could have crushed Hillary's "tax returns" ambush with one sentence. Here it is: "The Middle East is in chaos, our allies are endangered, our enemies are emboldened, our reputation among our international neighbors is sullied, and our nation's citizens are robbed of work and imperiled on their own soil by immigrant criminals and islamic terrorists thanks to the foreign policies that YOU executed during your tenure as Secretary of State in the first four years...

He spoke to the plight of the middle class and hammered big, clumsy government and tax increases as the cause.

    Randy Perkins is a typical Democrat. He will say anything, insult anyone and mock anyone, even a double amputee war hero if he thinks it will get him elected. Brian Mast is his Republican opponent in the race to fill the 18th CD seat in Florida being vacated by another Democrat who is running for higher office. Like all Democrats in politics, Perkins doesn’t do patriotism well. Reverence for America and the heroes that keep our nation safe is just not in their DNA.

    The anxiety is palatable. The question will not be made audible, but it remains: is she losing this election? Is it really slipping away? To put it in the words of Hillary Clinton: "Why am I not winning by 50 points?" 1. Epistemological poisoning. The depth of public outrage has been the consistent misunderstanding of all pundits trying to explain the current election. Why is the public so mad? Why do people seem to love Trump so much? Those charged with telling us the truth – journalists, the federal government, politicians, academia, Hollywood, and the Church – do not. The...

Her staff is working with the debate commission to erase height and stamina advantages of her opponent. They asked that the debate be by seated opponents which was refused as was their effort to allow her to stand on a hidden stool. Her podium will be lowered though so when the camera sweeps from candidate to candidate viewers might not notice he is considerably taller than she. Outside of the debate hall in Charlotte, North Carolina, another drama is taking place. Apparently "Black Lives Matters"...

    New Quinnipiac polls offer encouraging data for Donald Trump and a sagging future for Hillary Clinton. The Q-poll shows Clinton leading in Colorado 44/42, and in Virginia 45/39. It shows Trump leading 47/40 in Georgia and 44/37 in Iowa. In Colorado, where Obama won by 5 points in 2012, Clinton’s 8 point lead on August 17 has dissipated to 2 points which is within the 3.9% MOE. Moreover, Colorado is 87% White which is just at the beginning of certain trouble for Clinton since she is polling so poorly with Whites that Reuters has ALREADY all but called Vermont for...

    Rock legend Bruce Springsteen has described Donald Trump as an embarrassment to the United States, saying the Republican presidential candidate is a demagogue with simple solutions. Springsteen, who has dramatized the plight of working-class Americans in his music, said he understands how Trump could seem “compelling” to people who are economically insecure. “The absurdity is beyond cartoon-like. But he's gotten close enough (to the White House) so it can make you nervous,” he told Skavlan, a talk show in Norway and Sweden, during an interview released Friday.

    ~snips~ Americans will be watching the presidential debates closely – not for policies or ideas, but for images and demeanor. This creates a clear opening for Donald Trump. Hillary has hidden behind flacks and party hacks and pandering and controlled media. Trump has behaved exactly the opposite way, speaking for himself, attacking party machines, and acting often unscripted. If Hillary was elected, she would be the fattest president since William Howard Taft, the shortest president since James Madison, and the second oldest president in American history. These very visible factors will quietly blend into the evaluation voters will make of...

Ted, stay home, relax, enjoy yourself." But when Cruz’s endorsement came Friday in the form of a lengthy Facebook...

But only a small percentage will be processed before the election, the department said in court, arguing its resources are stretched too thin to get them done. All told, the FBI turned over 15,171 emails it recovered that involved Mrs. Clinton, and of those about 60 percent have been deemed purely personal. That leaves some 5,600 that are work-related, but based on a...

But this year, Republican Jews — or Jewish donors to the Republican party, at least — are abandoning their party’s nominee at a stunningly high rate. In 2012, 71 percent of the $160 million that Jewish donors gave to the two major-party nominees went to President Obama’s re-election campaign; 29 percent went to Mitt Romney’s campaign, according to our analysis of campaign contributors, which used a predictive model to estimate which donors are Jewish based on their names and other characteristics.

Moreover, chronic and prolonged stress of the kind plaguing Hillary is especially problematic, and it is reaching a fever pitch as her polls sink and the debates are days away. I am amazed that she has not completely fallen apart already. Second, traumatic and unexpected events contribute to stress, and Hillary never expected to meet...

    WASHINGTON -- The Senate minority whip told reporters on Capitol Hill today that the Minnesota mall stabbings and the New York/New Jersey bombings were "sad reminders that this Congress has done nothing -- nothing to prevent dangerous people from acquiring guns and explosives to carry out future attacks on Americans." Outside of a closed policy luncheon, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said Republicans "have seen multiple opportunities come and go to bring forward and pass bipartisan legislation to prevent terrorists from buying firearms and explosives, closing the so-called terror gap loophole." "All of which have been defeated by the Republican majority....

    For years genuine Catholics have been forced to watch helplessly as Democrat, fake Catholics have trashed Catholic doctrine for political gain with little more than a peep from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. We have been forced to shy away from discussions about the feckless response our Church leaders have displayed in the face of Democrat fake Catholic demands. When the Bishops give an inch or appear to give an inch the fake Catholic Democrats demand a yard. This has embarrassed us to no end; but things might be changing. After years of remaining largely silent while Democrat fake...

So, it was no surprise that within hours of announcing his Fort Myers event at the Germain Arena, tickets for the 8k venue were sold out in a flash. Scalpers were selling tickets to the event for $100-$400 dollars a pop!

    Jennifer Epstein, a reporter for Bloomberg and clearly the very model of a modern Leftist journalist, asked Hillary Clinton today: Are you concerned that this weekend’s attacks or potential incidents in the coming weeks might be an attempt by ISIS or ISIS sympathizers, or really any other group, maybe the Russians, to influence the presidential race in some way, and presumably try to drive votes to Donald Trump? In response, the former secretary of State for a president who has given billions to the Islamic Republic of Iran -- a country which ordered its people to chant “Death to America”...

    There is no point denying or sugar-coating the plain fact that the voters this election year face a choice between two of the worst candidates in living memory. A professor at Morgan State University summarized the situation by saying that the upcoming debates may enable voters to decide which is the "less insufferable" candidate to be President of the United States. My own take on this election is that the voter is in a situation much like that of an American fighter pilot in World War II, whose plane has been hit by enemy fire out over the Pacific Ocean...
  • Obama: America afraid of powerful women

    President Obama telling a Manhattan fundraiser that Hillary Rodham Clinton will "carry on" his initiatives, said America hasn't had a female president because the country is skittish about "powerful women." However, speaking to the liberal donors, he said he is confident that the country is ready to get over its hangup. "There's a reason why we haven't had a woman president," he said, according to a press poll report on the event. "We as a society still grapple with what it means to see powerful women.
