    Vanity | 9/29/16 | boycott
    I believe there are certain things Trump needs to drive home to win. (1) Hillary is a WARMONGER - This needs to be repeated over and over. - She supported us attacking Libya. Libya was not a threat to us or anyone. In fact, they opened their weapons arsenal for inspections. They are now a failed state. Thanks, hillary. - She supported the overthrow of Syria by supplying weapons to terrorists. Hundreds of thousands of innocent Christians and others have died as a result of hillary and obama. This GENOCIDE is on their hands. - Hillary and obama quietly supported...

    It is time for the Trump campaign to embrace new language regarding the MSM`s clear disregard for nuetrality It is no longer accurate or effective to refer to it as media bias. Not only is media bias an innacurate term, it`s a term that is used so often, that people tune it out. The truth of the matter is much worse than simply media bias.The new language Trump needs to use in the debates is to call it a conspiracy. We are dealing with a conspiracy to keep pertinent information from the voting public.If he faces the same lopsided questioning...

    This poll is gonna be updated from here on out daily at 830a. Last week same poll had Trump up by 5. These are the first post debate #'s. Since its been up since 830a I'm surprised to be first to post this today. Trump has to stick to his Vision during debate, and not try to get caught up in her stupid data bombs. His vision on immigration, economics, and everything else is so much letter and he needs to stay focused on conveying such, and bring up her scandals at the same time.

    In my neck of the woods Hillary is running an ad that starts with an audio of Trump saying something about a woman's figure (maybe from a beauty pageant, who knows?). The ad then asks, is the role model you want for your daughters? The ad ends with pictures of little girls looking sad. Trump needs to counter this. Let soccer moms hear that audio of Hillary laughing as she talks about how she successfully defended a child rapist. Get it on TV. Get it on Facebook.

    Free speech is under attack when the content doesn't comply with the leftist agenda. Colin Kaeperbick is praised across the country by liberals for his Anti-American views, and even praised by the president. On the other hand, NFL players, baseball players and other celebrities are ostracized and even punished for tweets or comments that don't confirm to mainstream media narrative. And don't even think about posting a pro-Trump comment on Facebook! Yard signs are stolen, supporters are harassed, and angry protesters have gotten violent. It's been so difficult to express support for Trump that many people have kept quiet, even...

    Even with two years remaining in her term, Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen may quit if Donald Trump is elected president, an economist argued on Tuesday. Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, said in a note to clients that Trump doubled down on criticism of the Fed during his debate with Hillary Clinton. Trump said the U.S. economy is in a “big, fat, ugly bubble” and specifically called out Yellen. “And we have a Fed that’s doing political things. This Janet Yellen of the Fed,” he said. “The day Obama goes off, and he leaves, and goes out...

    I hope Trump pays little or nothing in taxes. In fact, I wish the federal government would take less from him than they already do. The money Trump save on taxes he then uses to create businesses that employ 10s of thousands of workers. These workers all pay federal taxes and will continue to pay taxes far, far,...FAR in excess of any money the federal government would have confiscated from Trump. Trump may or may not pay taxes, but he most certainly creates significant tax revenues. What would be smart is for the federal government to invest in Trump, allow...

    Hillary was very polished in her responses in tonight's debate, almost too polished. In fact, she was more polished than perhaps any politician I have ever seen in a debate. And calm. Hillary's emails show us that the DNC approved articles about Hillary for CNN. There's definite collusion between Hillary and the press. It's not even a small stretch to believe that perhaps there was collusion between Hllary and NBC's debate producers.

Add a nasty election to the mix, and you have a savoury stew of rancid, small-state nationalism along Europe's southern flank. Let's start with the referendum vote in Republika Srpska, which took place on Sunday. This entity has a violent and sordid history. Officially it is part of Bosnia, and once it was part of Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia cracked apart into warring pieces in 1991.

    Between 2003 and 2009 the Iraq war resulted in 109,032 deaths, which included 66,081 civilian deaths. George W. Bush's war is widely considered to be a disaster. In comparison, Obama's Syrian war has produced 470,000 deaths to date with civilian deaths estimated at north of 100,000. It's also produced a global refugee crisis and multiplied terror attacks around the world most notably the U.S. I call it Obama's war because, (a) he started it with his petulant and ill-advised Arab Spring movement, and (b) he greatly prolonged it through inaction and indecisiveness, which has emboldened Russia.
