  • The Man who Correctly Predicted President Trump’s 2016 Win Predicts President Trump has a 91% Chance of Being Reelected in 2020; His model has been correct since 1996

    Professor Helmut Norpoth from Stony Brook University told Lou Dobbs on August 16th, 2016, that Donald Trump had an 87% chance of winning the 2016 Presidential election. Professor Norpoth is a political science professor at Long IslandÂ’s Stoney Brook University.His model has been correct since 1996 on predicting the popular vote. We reported that his 2016 forecast rested on a model that tracks cyclical movements in American presidential elections. It goes back to 1828, when popular voting became widespread and the two-party system took hold. Over nearly two centuries, American presidential elections have exhibited a distinct cycle. This is...
  • Former Police Detective Builds Trump Sign on Roof Near Maryland Airport

    Airline passengers flying into Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) can look down and see a new, bold, controversial political sign in the days leading up to Maryland Republican primary. A giant orange “TRUMP” sign is on the roof of a house directly under the approach for BWI. Donald Trump has a double digit lead in the Republican primary in Maryland, but the blue state is making many of his supporters hide their vote. But one retired police detective decided to fight back– in a “yuge” way — after his 12-year old daughter was bullied at school for backing the billionaire...
  • Buried From Trump Tower Meeting: Translator Telling FBI 'No Collusion'

    Just days after news of the infamous Trump Tower meeting drew the attention of Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, the translator present told the FBI there was no talk of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, according to recently released documents. ==================================================================== Anatoli Samochornov, translator, quoted in FBI memo: "There was no discussion of the 2016 United States presidential election or Collusion between the Russian government and the Trump campaign.” LinkedIn via CBS News =================================================================== This exculpatory evidence – which backed accounts of Donald Trump Jr. and other campaign officials in attendance – was not mentioned in Special Counsel...
  • Halfway to the 2016 Truth: The Steele dossier was flimsy. What about the FBI’s secret info in the Clinton case?

    Wall Street Journal ^ | December 17, 2019 | Holman W. Jenkins
    Now that the Justice Department’s Michael Horowitz has exposed the flimsy nature of the Steele “dossier,” which the FBI disingenuously used to pursue a counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign, the public should finally be told a parallel truth about FBI actions that really did influence the 2016 election. James Comey’s chaotic actions in the Hillary Clinton email case, later found to be improper and insubordinate, were set in motion by still-secret Russian intelligence. His original intervention led to his follow-up intervention, reopening the Hillary case before Election Day, which may well have tilted the election to Mr. Trump. It’s...
  • Meghan McCain: There Was No ‘Deep State Spying’ as Alleged by Donald Trump

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View,” co-host Meghan McCain argued President Donald Trump’s rhetoric clouded the issues regarding the FBI’s Russia probe. McCain said, “They said there were 17 inaccuracies and omissions in the process and there was some FBI misconduct and plenty of wrongdoing in the FISA process. I think part of the problem with this is you will see it through whatever lens your political bias is at. As you were pointing out, people make makes mistakes.”
  • Of course the FBI spied on the Trump campaign

    Washington Examiner ^ | Dec. 11, 2019 | Byron York
    The great debate about whether the FBI spied on the Trump campaign continues. The question is why there is still any argument. The newly-released report from Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz shows that by any definition the FBI did indeed spy. The proof is in the details of the report. In addition to the much-discussed wiretap of Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page, Horowitz discussed the bureau's use of what is called a CHS -- a confidential human source, or, in more common terms, an informant, and a UCE -- an undercover employee, or a secret agent, to...

    "Donald Trump is not going to be President of the United States," Pelosi said on the latest episode of Recode Decode, hosted by Kara Swisher. "Take it to the bank, I guarantee it." (video at web site) She said that she is urging her Republican friends to "take back your party." In response to the proposal that Trump uses social media better than other politicians, Pelosi blamed ratings-hungry media outlets for amplifying his visibility. "Social media has democratized elections even further," she added. "People hear things that may or may not be true, but nonetheless, the democratization of communication is...
  • Former Trump campaign official testifies Stone gave updates on WikiLeaks email dumps

    President Trump's former deputy campaign manager told a jury on Tuesday that Roger Stone was giving the campaign updates on WikiLeaks' plans to release damaging emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman. Rick Gates, who is facing up to ten years in prison under a plea agreement for various fraud charges, testified in Stone's criminal trial on Tuesday, saying that the longtime Trump associate was telling the campaign about WikiLeaks' plans as early as April 2016, months before the DNC had announced it was hacked. Stone is facing charges of lying to Congress about his...

    You might find it fun, maddening or confounding– but it’s hard to not to find it interesting to review how wrong so many of us in the media have been when it comes to political and financial predictions in the era of Donald Trump. One example is a 2016 article by CNN. It’s entitled: “A Trump win would sink stocks.” It doesn’t attribute the prediction to anyone in particular, it simply states it as if it were a fact. The article goes on to read, “If Donald Trump wins the election…U.S. stocks will almost certainly tank.” The only outstanding question,...

    < SNIP> In April of this year, Senators Grassley and Johnson sent a letter to Attorney General Barr asking him for any information on the following (or perhaps this was their way of encouraging him to look into something). What they specifically asked about was related to some text messages from corrupt FBI Agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page referring to a “CI guy” in the White House – Next Grassley and Johnson provide the exact text messages they wanted Barr to look into. The text from Peter Strzok says “Do we want Joe to go with Evania instead of...

    President Trump has ratched up his claim that the Obama White House spied on his 2016 campaign, charging in a new book that it was a “treasonous” act by the former Democratic president. “What they did was treasonous, OK? It was treasonous,” he told author Doug Wead for his upcoming book, "Inside Trump's White House: The Real Story of His Presidency." “The interesting thing out of all of this is that we caught them spying on the election. They were spying on my campaign. So you know? What is that all about?” said Trump. “I have never ever said this,...

    During a “press marathon” on Thursday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the topic of his famous July 25 phone call with President Trump, including one of the “favors” Trump mentioned: to look into “the whole situation” of Ukraine’s role in the 2016 U.S. election. “Donald Trump wasn’t the only presidential candidate whose campaign was boosted by officials of a former Soviet bloc country,” Politico‘s Kenneth Vogel and David Stern wrote in a January 2017 report that has since been cited by multiple administration officials. “Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness...

    The Anchorage Daily News ^ | October 8, 2019 | Michelle Ye Hee Lee and Anu Narayanswamy, The Washington Post
    Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2015 had no pollster, rapid-response team or fundraiser. A bare-bones staff fueled by pizza and energy drinks toiled in a makeshift office at Trump Tower. His opponents vastly outspent him - and lost. But as president, Trump's campaign machine has dramatically escalated, powered by a historically large war chest of donations large and small that has given him a head start over the eventual Democratic nominee. At this point in the last election, Trump's campaign employed 19 consultants. Now, there are more than 200. When Trump had all but locked up the nomination by May...

    The Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday released volume two of its Russia investigation, which concluded that Russians sought "to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election by harming Hillary Clinton’s chances of success and supporting Donald Trump at the direction of the Kremlin," according to a committee press release. The committee in the report focused on Russia's use of social media to influence the 2016 election, led by the Kremlin-backed Internet Research Agency (IRA). "The Committee found that IRA social media activity was overtly and almost invariably supportive of then-candidate Trump to the detriment of Secretary Clinton’s campaign," according to the...

    A federal judge in frank terms has dismissed a lawsuit by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) against key members of the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks over hacked DNC documents, saying they "did not participate in any wrongdoing in obtaining the materials in the first place" and therefore bore no legal liability for disseminating the information. The ruling came as Democrats have increasingly sought to tie the Trump team to illegal activity in Russia, in spite of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's findings that the campaign in fact refused multiple offers by Russians to involve them in hacking and disinformation efforts. The...

    One by one, they had trickled out of the conference room on the 25th floor of Trump Tower. It was Friday, October 7, 2016, two days before the second presidential debate, and the Republican nominee’s brain trust had spent the morning running a carefully simulated rehearsal session. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, playing the role of Hillary Clinton, was stationed adjacent to his opponent at a conference table; Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, acting as the moderator, was positioned directly across from Donald Trump. The rest of the observers—press secretary Hope Hicks, campaign chief executive Steve Bannon, campaign manager...

    A powerful House Republican says President Obama’s FBI and CIA committed “severe, serious abuses” against then-presidential candidate Donald Trump that soon will be exposed. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told John Catsimatidis of New York City’s AM 970 “The Answer” that the Obama administration had no legal basis to probe the Trump campaign, The Hill reported. “There is no doubt to me there was severe, serious abuses that were carried out in the FBI and, I believe, top levels of the CIA against the president of the United States or, at that time, presidential candidate Donald Trump,” King said. “There was...

    On June 16th 2015 a Manhattan businessman descended an escalator on Fifth Avenue and upended all the inert leaden rituals of America's two-year presidential campaigns. Four years on, in an even more crowded Democrat field, I have no idea at this stage who will emerge victorious. But I think I can plausibly claim - unlike far more powerful figures on the American right, still throwing money and endorsements at obvious losers nine months later - to have discerned the essentials of the 2016 race pretty early. (I predicted Trump would win the nomination on the radio with Alan Colmes in...
