    Long before Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank claimed to have the “statistics” to prove Hillary Clinton’s assertion that half of Donald Trump supporters are “deplorables,” a liberal outlets that has repeated such slurs -- the New York Times -- published an article titled “Poll Finds Tea Party Backers Wealthier and More Educated.”That was back in April 2010, a year after the rise of the “Tea Party movement,” a movement inspired by the “rant” of Rick Santelli in 2009 over Obama’s massive “stimulus” spending on infrastructure (sidewalks that went nowhere), “green energy” (Solyndra), and bribes to governors to participate in the...

    The moment has arrived. This is the biggest and most eagerly awaited showdown the world’s seen since Muhammad Ali and George Foreman’s Rumble in the Jungle, 42 years ago. Only Trump-Clinton has every potential to even more brutal, and way more historic. The stakes could not be higher or more dramatic. The two least popular candidates in the history of US presidential go head to head tonight in what many believe is a winner-takes-all encounter Foreman, famously, wielded what he called his ‘Anywhere’ punch. When a bemused Ali asked his training team exactly what that was, he was told: ‘Anywhere...

If that president is Hillary Clinton… “I do have a litmus test, I have a bunch of litmus tests, because the next president could get as many as three appointments,” the former first lady responded. “It’s one of the many reasons why we can’t turn the White House over to the Republicans again.” . . . “We have to preserve marriage equality,” Clinton said. “We have to go further to end discrimination against the LGBT community, we’ve got to make...

I'll been fighting for conservative causes since Nixon in 1960. Those 56 years of political infighting have taught me one thing; ignore the polls, work your butt off like the election is tomorrow, and you're still 3% behind.

  • UPI/CVoter state polls: Donald Trump ahead of Hillary Clinton in Electoral College

    UPI ^ | 9/26/2016 | Allen Cone
    Donald Trump would earn enough votes to win the presidency in the Electoral College based on UPI/CVoter's state tracking poll released Monday. Trump would amass 292 votes and Clinton would get 246 with 270 needed to secure the oval office. But the candidates' leads are narrow enough -- 5 percent or less -- in 12 states to classify them as swing states, meaning 156 electoral votes could be up for grabs. If the battleground states are not counted, the race would be tied 191-191.

    In a piece of cheeky psychological warfare leading up to Monday night's first presidential debate at Hofstra University in New York, Hillary Clinton has turned to what may seem like a surprising place: ESPN.com. The Democratic nominee's campaign pokes Republican rival Donald Trump in a new banner advertisement running Monday on the sports site that reads, "Trump: He's like that guy in your fantasy league who talks trash all week and forgets to set his lineup," highlighted in yellow. The background features two unflattering images of Trump, each appearing to yell at the other one. The gambit appears to be...

    Donald Trump is tapping a high-profile climate change skeptic to lead administration transition efforts for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Myron Ebell, director of energy and environment policy at the conservative think tank Competitive Enterprise Institute, is heading Trump’s EPA transition preparation, E&E Daily reported Monday. Ebell is an outspoken, longtime skeptic of the scientific consensus that human activity is dramatically changing the climate. He often refers to warnings about global warming as climate “alarmism” and is a vocal critic of President Obama’s climate change regulations. Ebell has argued that the Clean Power Plan is illegal and that the Paris...

    As this vitriolic, unpredictable, outrageously entertaining presidential campaign enters its final stages I find myself pondering what happens next. I was reminded of the last scene in the 1972 movie, The Candidate. The movie is about a young untested non-politician candidate for U.S. Senator in California who puts his fate in the hands of a veteran political operative and overcomes a double digit polling deficit to win a huge upset victory. His entire focus during the campaign was to win. In the final scene of the movie he is standing among the celebrating campaign staffers and the fawning press corp....

    The latest CNN/ORC poll shows a dead heat in Colorado and Pennsylvania with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton separated by a single point in a 4-way race. CNN reports: In Colorado, likely voters break 42% for Trump, 41% for Clinton, 13% for Libertarian Gary Johnson and 3% for Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Pennsylvania’s likely voters split 45% for Clinton, 44% for Trump, 6% for Johnson and 3% for Stein. Those divides are well within each poll’s 3.5-point margin of sampling error.In both states, sharp divisions among whites by education are evident, with white college graduates choosing Clinton over Trump...

    So what's different about 2016? The debate-as-litmus-test for likability doesn't apply. This year it's about unlikability. In other words, in an election cycle where both candidates are historically unlikable, voters aren't asking "Who do I like the most?" they're asking "Who do I dislike the least?" Here's what Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton need to do to win the "least unlikable" award.

The Times wrote: "Voters attracted by the force of the Trump personality should pause and take note of the precise qualities he exudes as an audaciously different politician: bluster, savage mockery of those who challenge him, degrading comments about women, mendacity, crude generalizations about...

    The forecasts for a Trump win, though, aren't as extreme as might be expected. In fact, several strategists believe a Trump presidency might not bring about radical change, despite the New York businessman's pledge to revamp long-established trade deals, slash taxes for businesses and individuals and demolish the government-run health-care program. That's primarily because even in the scenario where the Republican prevails, the greater likelihood is that he'll have to deal with a divided Congress where it's difficult to push through major initiatives. Morgan Stanley analysts call this scenario "policy incrementalism" and believe that it's the most likely outcome regardless...

    Party Loyalty Can’t Make Me Vote for Clinton A lifelong Democrat, I’m backing Trump because he can shake up our politics and revive the economy. Andrew Stein I have been steeped in the Democratic Party all my life. My father, Jerry, was a New York City Democratic chairman and power broker, and I grew up in and around the Democratic Party. When I was a young man, former senators and Democratic presidential and vice-presidential nominees Hubert Humphrey and Estes Kefauver stayed at my apartment and we would proudly discuss the great traditions of the Democratic Party. My father was a...

    New information from the Cape Coral Police Department indicated that an overnight stabbing was self-inflicted. Earlier reports claimed an unknown person stabbed the woman while wearing a Donald Trump-style Halloween mask. Further investigation revealed the woman's injures were self-inflicted. The victim has been admitted for care under the provisions of the Baker Act. Investigators are no longer looking for a suspect in this case and there is no danger to the public at large.

    Question: If a reporter isn’t committed to ferreting out the truth, wherever that truth leads; if “adversarial” applies to only to one side and not the other (in fact, the other side, in varying degrees, is being aided and abetted), is the reporter practicing journalism? Obvious answer: No. The reporter isn’t reporting, and journalism is merely a ruse. What’s being undertaken is propaganda. No exaggeration. Propaganda, it is, and mainstream media practitioners are “propagandists.” It’s high time to brand both as such and make it stick. So you’re thinking this is much adieu about nothing. Generally, the public has been...

Each side is joined by activist and industry groups, electric companies, academics, lawmakers, tech companies, and retired dignitaries who together have filed over 70...

    Jeb Bush in 2020, anyone? Sources close to Jeb Bush’s failed run at the 2016 presidency say the “low-energy” candidate has been back in touch with supporters. They believe he’s popping up to “feel them out” for another run and, according to at least one big contributor, they're in! “Bush has been quietly making telephone calls to his supporters, bundlers and donors, to talk about the state of the county and the economy, and the energy business, why would he do that?” asks one insider, who concludes “he's running in four years.” Before he was trounced by Donald Trump, Bush...
