    (KUTV) Researchers at the University of Utah say there's a strong case to impeach Donald Trump, should he be elected as president. Law professor Christopher Peterson said he found ample evidence to charge the Republican candidate with fraud and racketeering, both of which are considered felonies within state and federal law.

  • Defying the odds: How to flip a Trump voter using pure logic [are you convinced now?]

    The only way to talk someone out of voting for Trump is to stop trying to talk them out of voting for Trump. To all my fellow progressives who’ve been busily browbeating supporters of this dangerous demagogue, you’re invited to become an early adopter of a far more rewarding, non-adversarial approach called “powerful non-defensive communication.” According to most commentators, the prototypical Trump supporter is an uneducated, narrow-minded bigot with legitimate grievances against the faltering economy which Trump has skillfully alchemized into violent rage toward non-whites, Muslims and successful women. The Trump voter is a patriarchal authoritarian primed since early childhood...
  • Robert Gates disarmed America, dares to attack Trump (Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady)

    WND ^ | Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady
    President Obama held Gates over from the Bush era probably to tout his bipartisan credentials. Gates was listed as a Republican. He is as much a Republican as is Colin Powell – or as Obama is bipartisan. Obama knew Gates would be a willing ally in fundamentally transforming the military (as part of transforming America) from the ass-kicking outfit he inherited to the girly men can kickers it has become. Obama promised to disarm America to a level acceptable to Islam! He did, and Gates was a willing ally. Gates immediately fell in line with Obama’s anti-military, anti-American, pro-Muslim programs....
  • What's Missing from Mr. Trump's "Make America Great Again" Slogan

    09/26/2016 4:01:36 AM PDT · by The Ignorant Fisherman · 82 replies
    IFB ^ | 9/26/16
    What I find absolutely amazing today is how many Americans truly believe that one person can "make America great again" after years of our nation's war on and abandonment of moral absolutes. As many Americans know, "Make America Great Again" is Donald Trump's presidential campaign slogan. This campaign slogan sounds great and has given a huge false hope to many Americans who want to return back to America's "less declining" pre-Obama years. However, I truly wonder how many of these Americans see the REALITY and three dimensional perspective of how impossible, unrecoverable and irreversible the fallout and damage inflicted on...
  • Sanders to join Clinton in N.H. for joint pitch of a college plan aimed at millennials

    Sen. Bernie Sanders plans to join Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton this week at an event in New Hampshire where they will pitch a joint plan to make college more affordable -- part of a continuing effort to sell the party’s ticket to wary millennials. Sanders, the runner-up in the Democratic primaries, consistently outperformed Clinton among young voters. As he prepared to exit the race in July, he worked with Clinton to incorporate parts of his college plan into hers. The result is a proposal to make public colleges and universities tuition-free for families with income up to $125,000 a...
  • Wire: Little Public Support for Hillary Clinton — in Liberal Brooklyn Neighborhood

    Breitbart ^ | 9/25/2016
    (REUTERS) One would expect voters from the heavily Democratic Brooklyn neighborhood of Cobble Hill to pick presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 general election. Just don’t expect them to advertise it. Like lawns and windowsills in liberal pockets across the country, much of the neighborhood is bereft of pro-Clinton signage in the final weeks before the election. It’s a stark contrast to the 2012 and 2008 campaigns, when President Barack Obama whipped up a frenzy of support from Democrats and his signature “Hope” and “Forward” signs were ubiquitous. The scarcity of lawn and window signs is an indication...
  • China's Conquest of Internet, ICANN + Quantum Encryption

    Please brace for just one thick sentence: ICANN's power is mainly legal, and a contract with ICANN could trigger a violent dispute over international law. ~ ~ ~ Bluntly stated: giving away ICANN could ultimately trigger a cyber war or worse. ~ ~ ~ Raw Power and International Law When you face a super power like the USA it helps to have raw power. China probably assumes it will not come to that, but just like nuclear deterence, they need the war-making capability. And the Chinese already enjoy raw power. Their encryption is superior, their nuclear capability suffices, and they...

    It’s a “little girls’ game,” Mr. Trump and the little girl that wants to be president is one that loudly screams: “Misogynist!” Mainstream media headlines on the day after the first presidential debate at Hofstra University: ‘Donald Trump, World’s Biggest Misogynist!” That’s the plan, and that will be the mainstream media’s take no matter how Trump performs at the debate. On the day after the presidential debate, moderated by NBC’s Lester Holt and expected to attract upwards of 100 million viewers, Mark Cuban sitting in in the front row as Hillary Clinton’s guest, and Gennifer Flowers should she show up...

    In response to questions from AARP Bulletin, Hillary Clinton made clear her position that to be successful, policies for ending terrorism must include gun control for all Americans. AARP Bulletin asked, “What would you do to address terrorism?” Clinton responded: Well, these are legitimate fears. I believe that people are rightly concerned about violence. Terrorism is part of that violence, and we have to do the best job we can to keep America safe. So I’ve laid out a very comprehensive plan about taking on the terrorists, going after them where they operate, doing everything we can to take away...

    Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), chair of the House Committee on Homeland Security, told Fox News’ Mario Bartiromo on Sunday morning that “there’s a good chance” Friday’s mass shooting at mall in Washington “could be” Islamic terrorism. McCaul appeared on Sunday Morning Futures to discuss the latest developments in a week of violence, from last weekend’s bombings in New York and New Jersey, which were allegedly carried out by Muslim immigrant Ahmad Khan Rahami, to the shooting at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, Washington. On Saturday evening, police arrested Arcan Cetin, 20, a Muslim immigrant and permanent resident from Turkey, for...

    Trump has three advantages that are just kicking in that each could give Trump a lasting bump that can put him over the top. If they all materialize, it is hard to see how Trump loses. (1) King NeverTrump Surrenders Ted Cruz endorsed Trump when the race was already tied. Cruz had a hardcore following around the country, and his steadfast opposition no doubt persuaded some of his supporters to also withhold support. It will not persuade the establishment holdouts to change their minds, but they really just don't seem to matter much this time around.  Hillary has already consolidated...
  • Is Hillary Clinton Losing the 2016 Election?

    American Thinker ^ | September 25, 2016 | Ben Vos
    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...

    More than half of America's single parents and one-fifth of its families with children could see their federal income taxes go up under Republican Donald Trump's revamped tax plan, according to a new analysis of the plan by a New York University professor who previously served as a tax specialist for the Obama administration and the Senate Finance Committee. The Trump campaign called the findings "pure fiction," contending the analysis neglects a crucial benefit for low-income taxpayers — and insisting that Trump would instruct the congressional committees drafting his plan into law that taxes would not be allowed to rise for any...

    In 1999 Hillary Clinton played a crucial role in obtaining presidential clemency for 12 members of the infamous Puerto Rican terrorist group, FALN (Armed Forces of National Liberation).Between 1974 and 1983 the FALN claimed a decade long terror war against the US for Puerto Rican “independence” but planned to transform Puerto Rico into a Cuban bases Marxist state.   Nine people were seriously injured in 28 Chicago area bombings.  Six were murdered in NY, including four (60 injured) in the horrific January 24, 1975 lunchtime bombing of historic Fraunces Tavern in lower Manhattan.  My father, Frank Connor, only 33, was murdered...

    Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, totally ignored a question about sanctuary cities on Sunday’s broadcast of “State of the Union.” "I know you have a lot of criticism of Donald Trump’s position [on immigration]," host Jake Tapper posed to Mook. "When it comes to Hillary Clinton I have to ask about sanctuary cities, cities where they don’t enforce federal immigration laws and that sometimes means people who are criminals, who are in this country illegally end up getting free and committing worse crimes. It’s a fact that that does happen. Does Hillary Clinton consider sanctuary cities to be a...

    The teachers unions have hidden behind the "for the children" mantra for decades, all the while creating a system that costs more and more to educate less and less. New York City spends more than $20,000 per year per pupil, and 80% of the "graduates" do not read well enough to attend community college. Now that millions of invaders are coming here to collect government checks, we are expected to pay for the "education" of their children as well. The teachers unions look upon this as a multicultural bonanza, allowing them to create teaching positions for eight different dialects of...

    The real Hillary Clinton — the funny, kind, passionate woman her friends and colleagues insist actually exists — has been missing from public view for so long that even some of her most admiring defenders wonder whether she will ever emerge again. On the eve of the first presidential debate, Clinton’s campaign is launching a drive to convince voters that she is, well, human. The move, coming just six weeks before the election, is a frank admission that whether it traces to her embarrassingly public marital traumas, or to the arrows aimed at her during the White House years by...
