    I suppose the current angst is over Donald's apparent 'softening' on illegal aliens which I personally took no notice of as a softening or change, etc. Why? I'll get to it later but first notice the following recent exchange in reference to a poster's unhealthy and shallow obsession with Trump's principles and word usage:

    > "Maybe the hope would be that the major candidates would also stop talking about more borrowing and spending too ---instead of "First of all, you never have to default because you print the money," and Trump: 'Now is the time to borrow'."

    If you listened to his whole interview, you would have heard talk about public-private ventures implying that firms doing work for the federal infrastructure could borrow with near zero debt service.

    You would have also heard that nearly every federal contractor comes in over budget often by billions and far behind schedule because they don’t know how to build or they want to underperform. Whereas, Trump’s projects come in ahead of schedule and under budget.

    You would also have heard that in certain areas such as military and critical infrastructure, there is no other choice but to spend.

    And he is correct saying the USA cannot default or declare bankruptcy just as any ‘sovereign’ nation cannot do those things. There are only two options: raise taxes or print money (create electronically). Printing money can induce inflation which is a hidden form of taxation, hence both options are alike in shifting power to the federal government.

    So as usual, Donald is telling the truth and is signaling that he will use all the tools at his disposal to MAGA. He will not allow himself to be tied to simpleton campaign slogans of “he said this” and “he said that” thereby allowing Megyn Vagina and the like blast away with months worth of distraction via the leftist media on “how he broke his promises”. He’s smarter than them.

    Some relevant questions for the media morons are:

    1. How will you ensure the currency is not damaged? Gold standard? Are there alternatives to a Gold Standard?
    2. How will you and Congress reduce debt over the years?
    3. How many years will it take you and Congress to balance the budget?
    4. Is it desirable or necessary to balance the budget?
    5. How will you get Congress motivated to balance the budget?

    In the discussion, the question was raised as to what percentage of GDP would be comfortable for the level of debt. This is a turd packaged in candy wrapping marketed by media morons.

    GDP, like CPI and other assorted maligned measures, are not the metrics to be used in gauging the progress of MAGA. They have been politicized and signify nothing but political catcalls.

    More relevant metrics apply to measuring a reversal in the trade deficit, playing against China’s currency manipulation, auditing the Fed and disclosing to Americans its duplicity in globalism; for example, transferring billions via Citibank to Mexico’s Banamex (which Citibank owns) to build Ford plants in Veracruz, and the like.

    The one takeaway, which can be verified via YouTube videos of old hearings of Donald before Congress, is that he is a master of business, banking, finance, trade, negotiation, and taxes. He is smart, damned smart. He plays to win.

    This is not about borrowing or printing money. This about winning.

    So then what are we to take away from Donald's apparent confusing turnarounds or his skating near the thin ice of the left's cesspool of socialist nonsense solutions?

    What are we to believe?

    First, take note that in Manhattan Donald drove the liberals there insane with his 'doublespeak'. Donald kept playing his version of gaslighting until the liberals there gave up and acknowledged that TRUMP HAD DEVELOPED THE ABILITY TO SAY WHATEVER HE CHOSE TO SAY and without consequence. Donald became simply 'The Donald' to them because they could never figure him out. He had defeated them at their own game.

    So what to do then? How are we to think? Are we to give up on 'The Donald'?

    FORGET THE WORDS! LOOK AT THE RESULTS!

    What were the results in Manhattan?

    He got the permits! Donald was a great factor in transforming a decadent crime-ridden metropolis into a thriving tourist spot. AND ... he built in plain sight of the nation's most liberal population a great memorial that leaves tears in the eyes of its visitors:

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/3330070/posts?page=86#79

    So it's not 'WORDS' nor even 'ACTIONS' that we should hold Donald to, it's 'RESULTS'.

    He can say whatever the hell he wants to say and choose whatever action, but we can and we should hold him to the results. If he wants to kiss Prince Alwaleed's behind in the light of day and humiliate the United States in the process, go for it Donald! But you damn better bring home the spoils and make us 'feel proud' at the end of the day. There's nothing more awesome than to witness a chess player shock viewers and cause heart seizures in the process by sacrificing the Queen only to checkmate the opponent a few moves later (Bobby Fischer). Play smart Donald, look stupid and confusing if you must, but WIN DAMMIT WIN!

    When our great generation fought WWII, we were the better poker players at the end. We bluffed, we sent fake and false messages, we staged forces as a diversion from what we were really after. We were not above no-good dirty rotten trickery when it came to winning. We played to win. That's the mold Donald Trump comes from.

    So yes Donald, you can say whatever you want. But you damn better fight to preserve all of our Constitutional Rights including our FULL RAW 2nd Amendment Rights and our and our State's 10th Amendment Rights. And you damn better put us FIRST ALWAYS! These are the RESULTS we will hold you to. However you choose to get these results is your call, but get them you must!

    Now take note of TRUE WISDOM in the following:

    At the end of your life, people will remember you not by what you SAID nor by what you DID, but by how you made them FEEL.

    For conservatives, it's all about 'feeling' proud to be an American, to preserve the greatness that is America, to feel blessed to be part of the greatest nation ever to exist in history, and to know that its universal unchanging values - our values are strong enough to continue well past our lifetimes.

    So how does Donald intend to make us 'feel'?

    He intends to INSPIRE AND MOTIVATE US, not about politics, but about what WE can do with OUR LIVES, specifically what YOU can do with YOUR LIFE. Here is Donald's real, genuine and true goal for us, FOR YOU!:

    The paper ballots are never officially recounted unless the election is within a small fraction, set by state law.

    Presumably, volunteers can recount the ballots. Such was done in 2000 Gore V. Bush but the leftist reporters found that Bush had won by a larger margin and promptly dropped it.

    Here is the latest scam where paper ballot verification would be near impossible:

    It has been reported in social media (but not yet verified) Reddit and Facebook that Seth Rich was murdered because he had uncovered that Sanders had won in VA outside DC but that Sanders was defrauded by fake polling stations where democrats for Hillary voted, but where the votes were carriedafter the fake location was closed by a few Hillary operatives to official polling stations listed on the SOS webpage and where the votes from the fake polling stations were swapped out in place of votes made at legitimate polling places. The people who voted at the fake polling stations were presumably clueless.

    The story has credibility because it was reported by several people that Hillary’s primary campaign webpage gave directions to voters to vote at polling locations that were NOT on the official SOS webpage as approved polling stations.

    Such voters could easily have been duped, reported to a location and voted without knowing the polling stations were fake. Poll volunteers could have easily thought they were performing a legitimate role for the primary campaign.

    In this manner, Sanders voters would be cut out and replaced by Hillary voters, there would be no danger of a district showing too many votes, more than were registered. Hillary operatives would have legitimate vote ballots taken from an unofficial location and the crime would be to easily replace a bag of votes taken at a legitimate polling station with one taken from a fraudulent station. The sign-in sheets could also be swapped. There might possibly be a problem in initials of official poll workers on bag labels or sign-in sheets but in terms of fraud, it would be very very difficult to prove or catch in the act.

    Paper ballots have no identifying information, thus such a scheme would leave no means of verification of the original vote.

    Before Cleveland, there were daily reports of top democrats ‘freaking out’ over their internal polling showing Clinton far behind Trump.

    Suddenly, a media campaign emerges that accuses Trump of every awful thing imaginable and a slew of polls are reported where she leads by double digits.

    What changed?

    > “I’ve been a poll watcher since 2000 and there is voter fraud, but these machines are not on line and everyone would have to be programmed individually, not impossible but highly unlikely.”

    Points to retain here:

    1. Battleground States decide the Electoral College totals, i.e. a significant number of states are not important so it’s only necessary to drill down into the critical states.

    2. Within a critical state, counties are not equal. Certain counties decide the election for the entire state. More populous counties are known to wait until other counties have reported before reporting their own totals giving time for fraud to come up with votes to put a chosen candidate over the top. (This has been witnessed in King County, Washington)

    3. Electronic voting machines have been PROVEN by multiple independent groups to be EASILY HACKED by infections by code transferred from MEMORY CARDS required to be inserted in the machines including evading startup boot checks.

    4. The memory cards of the previous point are provided to the machines by whom? An Elections Supervisor? Does he or she know that the memory cards are infected? How would they know? How many cards are provided to which polling stations on election day?

    Given the points above, a plan can be developed to steal an election by focusing on certain key districts within certain Battleground States and ensuring electronic machines placed in key precincts are equipped with infected memory cards that are dispatched by persons that are clueless and who believe they are simply following procedures.

    Next, observe how fast Jeh Johnson jumped on the emerged ‘hacked-fraud-rigged’ issue of today by declaring electronic voting machines to be a part of critical federal infrastructure and to take over jurisdiction of such machines. This was in response to Donald Trump drawing attention to the rigged nature of elections. This was clearly an overreach by Johnson of federal authority to take over supervision of election machines that are rightfully in the hands of state officials.

    In sum, a number of machines, not a large number, equipped with memory cards and placed in critical districts of critical states can steal an election today. This was not such a concern in previous years because it was smaller, but now the prevalence of such machines has grown and is a legitimate cause of concern.

    Lastly, it has been reported in social media (but not yet verified) Reddit and Facebook that Seth Rich was murdered because he had uncovered that Sanders had won in VA outside DC but was defrauded by fake polling stations where democrats for Hillary voted, where the votes were carried by a few Hillary operatives to official polling stations listed on the SOS webpage and where the fraud votes were swapped out in place of votes made at legitimate polling places. The people who voted at the fake polling stations were presumably clueless.

    The story has credibility because it was reported by several people that Hillary’s primary campaign webpage gave directions to voters to vote at polling locations that were not on the official SOS webpage and were thus not approved polling stations. Such voters could easily have been duped, reported to a location and voted without knowing the polling stations were fake. Poll volunteers could have easily thought they were performing a legitimate role for the primary campaign. In this manner, Sanders voters would be cut out and replaced by Hillary voters, there would be no danger of a district showing too many votes, more than were registered. Hillary operatives would have legitimate vote ballots taken from an unofficial location and the crime would be to easily replace a bag of votes taken at a legitimate polling station with one taken from a fraudulent station. The sign-in sheets could also be swapped. There could be a problem in initials of official poll workers on bag labels or sign-in sheets but in terms of fraud, it would be very very difficult to prove or catch in the act.

    Vote fraud exists and occurs. It has grown only because there has not been legislation at either federal or state level to make it harder to catch, or any such legislation has been held up in courts as many courts are also throwing roadblocks in the way of persons trying to guard against vote fraud.

    The Diebold machines (and similar going by other names) were used in Venezuela to elect Hugo Chavez. Therefore, there is a history of effective fraud. It is not impossible. When there are billions and billions at stake in an election, it is not paranoid to think that persons such as Soros or even Bloomberg, or cronies of Harry Reid, would go all out to steal an election.

    The writers are ignorant. Donald Trump has drawn attention to the exploding deficits each time he talks about the economy and government spending. And he talks about these things frequently.

    Because the writers ignore this well-known fact, the rest of what they write holds no informational value. They are simply fishing for a sensational headline that fits the name of their brand. And it doesn’t work because they haven’t completed their homework.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KngtvqbWiSw

    and the most conclusive demonstration to date was taken down here:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6sMqvY_VSPI

    There are techniques to recover videos that Google has taken down or had to take down. If you know how or know someone that can recover such a video using the old url, it would save me a lot of time, thank you.

    These videos all talk about ‘memory cards’ and it is difficult to think that an election can be stolen by a few criminals carrying a few memory cards.

    But that is not how it needs to work. An elections supervisor can dispatch a security team with a case of such memory cards to be installed in every electronic machine as part of election preparation without knowing the cards are infected.

    Who provides these cards? In what quantity? What is the procedure for checking them out? And so on.

    Further, not every county need have an electronic voting machine and in fact, not every town or city within any county need have an electronic voting machine.

    For example, in Washington State, King County is the most populous. For years, King County has been the last county to report the results of elections leaving an opportunity to see other counties report first so that the number of votes needed to overcome more conservative counties can be determined.

    And within King County, Seattle is the biggest city with the largest homeless population and with ballots of dead people and people that have moved away. In 2004, it was found in a court case that more than 500 homeless persons in Seattle were registered to vote with home addresses listed as the downtown elections office address.

    But with electronic machines, the need to register the homeless or avail of dead voters is no longer necessary. The machines can fabricate all that is needed to overcome a lead by an unwanted candidate.

    So then, all over the country a map can be made of such counties as King County, Washington and of such cities as Seattle. And the election can be stolen with just a few choice districts in each state.

    > “Before I support an Article V I need to see them at least attempt to read the current one.”

    There will never be such an attempt because the States lost their power before the federal government with the passage of the 17th Amendment.

    The amendments to be proposed should be written to tilt to restoring the balance of power between the States and the federal government.

    Here are illustrations:

    ************************************************
    AMENDMENT XXVIII (State Sufferage)

    To restore effective suffrage of State Legislatures to Congress, the following amendment is proposed:

    ************************************************
    Section 1.
    A Senator in Congress shall be subject to recall by their respective state legislature or by voter referendum in their respective state.

    Section 2.
    Term limits for Senators in Congress shall be set by vote in their respective state legislatures but in no case shall be set less than twelve years nor more than eighteen years.

    Section 3:
    The seventeenth article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.

    ************************************************

    ************************************************
    AMENDMENT XXIX (Check Federal Government by ‘Thirty-State Quash Authority’)

    To redress the balance of powers between the federal government and the States, the following amendment is proposed:

    ************************************************
    Section 1.
    Upon a majority vote in three-fifths of state legislatures, specific federal statutes, federal court decisions and executive directives of any form shall be repealed and made void in any state, territory, or possession of the United States.

    Section 2.
    State legislatures in agreement with results derived from Section 1 of this amendment shall sign a state quash authority directive delineating the specific federal statutes, federal court decisions or federal executive directives affected, said directive addressed and delivered to the Congress of the United States becoming immediately effective as of the date of delivery.
    ************************************************

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3423235/posts?page=949#949

    Note that these illustrations are written SO THAT THE STATES ARE GIVEN RESPONSIBILITY AND AUTHORITY. Amendments should be written so that it is clear that the federal government has no mandate regarding the interpretation or selective enforcement or non-enforcement of these types of amendments.

    For example, the flawed 10th Amendment leaves all powers not enumerated in the US Constitution to the States or to the People. However, there is no mechanism left to the states to check the federal government with the 10th Amendment save for the appointment of US Senators by state legislatures which was abolished under the 17th Amendment. As it is, the 10th Amendment jurisdiction is left to the federal judiciary without any voice or role for the States. The result of these compounded flaws has yielded a highly centralized federal government whereby power is attained by an enormous federal government and funded by the Federal Reserve.

    You missed the point which is that Hewitt is touting his prowess for turning a nevertrump to a trump.

    The convention in Cleveland proved conclusively that the nevertrump movement had no influence and was more of a media creation to foment antitrump hysteria than an actual movement in and of itself.

    A year ago there was opposition because Romney and Bush morons thought they controlled the puppet strings. They were wrong.

    But a year later, after the convention, Hewitt does his self-congratulating over something which is inconsequential.

    He’s trying to remain relevant.

    He did a good job explaining about Breyer’s fallacious thinking which extends to the liberal mindset in general.

    But to be relevant to today, and nevertrump is no longer relevant to today, he should be talking about the here and now which is Trump’s drawing attention to the fact that African-Americans are losers under the democrats, that Hillary has been immersed in criminal pay-for-play and so on.

    But Hewitt is more focused on Hewitt than relevant newsworthy presentations of TODAY. THAT IS THE POINT.

    Hewitt shines in this but he lags in understanding other areas where Donald Trump will beneficially reform the institutional roles and responsibilities of the federal government.

    Further, Hewitt seems to claim too much credit in his persuading a NeverTrumper to vote Trump BECAUSE NeverTrumpers are a small fraction in every respect of the totality of the campaign.

    His role was to shore up delegates in the face of the nevertrumper efforts. Now that he has fulfilled his mission. he wants to go back to being retired and following his own pursuits.

    > “On top of everything, farmers receive taxpayer money for not producing.”

    Is that in the form of a tax credit against taxes due or a tax writedown offsetting income earned?

    Either way, it would not be an entitlement or welfare.

    And note I made the statement regarding “active working” farmers and ranchers while referring to an era when no-production subsidies did not exist.

    The Romans had several means of executing criminals but crucifixion was reserved for the absolute worst of criminals or those considered most dangerous.

    The thief that was crucified with God in the flesh, presumably a criminal thief of the worst kind, ASKED to be remembered and was promised by Jesus to be with Him in paradise that day.

    No loopholes needed.

    No, it’s wrong to infer that.

    In 1942, the Nazis still had ‘show camps’ where international inspectors were allowed to visit and see firsthand the conditions which were quite good.

    Then as today, if a coworker is fired or a prominent personality is arrested, people tend to think such people had crossed a line somewhere. In her time, there was no sense of the magnitude of such firings or arrests. Social media did not exist to help inform her. Mass communications were nonexistent which provided fertile ground from which to launch large propaganda campaigns. She was in the dark.

    My Godmother was originally from Serbia and settled immediately after the war in Leipzig, Germany. She spoke and wrote five languages fluently. She was summoned to Berlin to perform language work for Field Marshal Zhukov. She knew it was a death sentence so she arranged an escape buried in coal cars to the allied west side.

    It was a death sentence because they would kill her to ensure there were no witnesses.

    This lady was allowed to live because she had seen nothing that would leave her as a witness.

    In 1861, Lincoln signed into law a federal income tax. It was a flat tax that quickly morphed into a graduated income tax. It was shortly after ruled unconstitutional.

    52 years later, the 16th Amendment was enacted and a flat income tax was passed under constitutional authority. It quickly morphed into a graduated income tax.

    People forget that for most of the nation’s history, farmers were not required to pay income tax. Now, many complain that farmers are dependent on ‘subsidies’.

    How about no income tax at all for active working farmers?

    Suddenly, farming would become once again the way of life for Americans, and would go a long way in solving nearly all the social problems that exist today.

    It’s not so much that the electorate preferred Obama as it was they were uninspired about the alternatives.

    In 2008, Obama was a fresh face to Bush’ successor McCain.

    In 2012, Romney was a disgusting alternative causing more than 6 million blue collar republicans to abstain from voting for him.

    In both these elections. there simply wasn’t a good choice.

    In 2010, the Tea Party caused the House to be turned over to the GOP and the detestable John Boehner.

    In 2014, republicans and independents caused the Senate to be turned over to the GOP and the detestable Mitch McConnell.

    Key Facts:
    1) In 2010, 24% of the electorate were registered as Independent.
    2) In 2014, 42% of the electorate were registered as Independent.

    There’s a very good reason this shift occurred. A substantial majority of those registered Independent are conservative leaning. They voted in a GOP Senate in order to deny Harry Reid an opportunity to cause further mischief and harm to the country. They held their noses.

    But Independents are firmly in the Trump camp and will vote for him. Thus, 2016 is quite different.

    All polls, including Breitbart, including those favorable to Trump, are invalid because their scientifically designed sampling plans are not able to be followed because of ~90% nonresponse rates. Most Independents can be confidently expected to hang up because as a group they are fed up.

    Better indicators of the strength of campaigns today are social media traffic and rally enthusiasm.

    If you bothered to read the thread and the source, you would have noticed that two types of polling places were reported: 1) real ones posted on the SOS website and 2) fake ones posted on the Hillary primary website.

    Your comment applies to 1) and the thread’s comments apply to 2).

    Your comment is therefore short and incomplete, is thus not conclusive nor useful as anyone with a modicum of experience could have posted it.

    Totally disagree it would take thousands of conspirators.

    Democrat volunteers need only be told to show up at a voting booth to help sign people in. They would think the polling booth was legit; they would not know the difference.

    It would take only a few to collect the ballots and do what is alleged in the Facebook/Reddit posts.
