Make America Hate Again: The Donald has really stepped in it this time...








Oh my.





This is where reality starts to hurt, in the Electoral College. Stars denote states where Republicans have denounced Trump's lewd comments. (Image courtesy of 538)





Folks, looks like he's not the Teflon Don after all.












(All images courtesy of Slate)






Even his own wife has released a statement condemning his comments.

Folks, this could be a gamechanger. We are 31 days from the election. Tomorrow is the second to last Presidential debate. It is a townhall style debate. If Trump doesn't start to turn this around this weekend, there may not be enough time for him to recover before November 8th. But folks, lest we forget that Trump has a huge base firmly cemented into place, and there's nothing that is going to change their minds.

Folks, it is mathematically impossible for Trump to win this election if he loses Florida, North Carolina, Iowa, Nevada, Colorado, Wisconsin and New Hampshire, and yet Republicans in those states are throwing him right under the bus, and backing up to make sure he's dead.

I don't care how you want to spin it, this is bad news for The Donald!













Restoring the honor!

  1. If if if. Jacob. Please. When the cowardly RINO establishment Republicans see that this has no effect on his grassroots support, they'll come crawling back They blame him for "destroying" their party, but they did that years ago, trying to be Democrat Lite and badly alienating their base.

    4. It's not just her. Look at the entire Heritage movement. They do nothing while white power folks organize at their rallies. They laugh it up at racist jokes and memes online. They don't police their own pages and allow them to descend into sewers of hate speech. They make-up lies about the past and create fabricated narratives like "Black Confederate soldiers". When you find out that people who have come to your rallies and emulated your behavior at your behest are found to be child rapists and others who are alleged to have had child pornography and you say nothing, what does that say about you as a person? These folks need to do some deep introspection.

    2. And if you reply with the usual crap about America going down the drain, it's just your opinion. It's the same opinion you had when Obama won twice and the country is doing better than it was before he took office. So much for your opinions.

      Delete
    3. The country is doing better? Depends on who you're talking about. The rich are getting richer, yes. But the poor are getting poorer, and the middle class is getting poorer. Just one issue -- Obamacare... colossal failure. Worse than a failure. It's damaging to people and companies.

      LIE: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan." LIE: "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor." Premiums across the board, whether Obamacare or not, have risen drastically, due to Obamacare. For some people, they're higher than their house payments... For others, they are just completely unaffordable, and they have to drop coverage. (Ostensibly, Obamacare was instigated to insure those who couldn't get coverage... what a joke).

      Insurers are pulling out of the ACA in market after market ... UnitedHealthCare, Aetna, Humana, Blue Cross to name just a few. UnitedHealthCare's decision came after it lost 200 MILLION dollars in TWO MONTHS in Obamacare exchanges. In August, Tennessee's insurance commissioner said Obamacare is in "near collapse" in her state. UnitedHealthCare has already pulled out. BCBST said it has lost 500 million dollars in the 3 years it's been part of Tennessee's Obamacare exchange.

      (A few companies are staying in -- Cigna, Anthem -- we'll see how quickly and badly they start hemorrhaging, and how long before they pull out...or go under.)

      Obamacare has ruined health insurance (and, thus, medical care), regardless of whether its an ACA exchange, private insurance, or Medicare. You can cook the books, and smoke-and-mirror the numbers and make things not look so bad, but people are hurting, lots of people.

      This is what happens when a community organizer becomes the architect of a new health insurance industry... A financial boondoggle of epic proportions and millions with less to no coverage, skyrocketing (read: unaffordable) premiums, co-pays and deductibles, denial of medical care, prescription drugs, etc... A total failure.

      Note: the elderly will be the hardest hit as the ACA "inspires" "changes" (cuts) in Medicare. You look kinda hoary in you profile pics, Dimmy... better hope you won't need health care as you travel further into seniorhood....

    4. 1) So you're really unhappy with your candidate for telling you that he wants to bring jobs back to America while he creates products he sells in other countries and imports steel for his own buildings from China, right?

      You're also upset because his tax plan wants to reduce taxes for the 1%, while folks like us see little benefit? That's just trickle down economics, which politicians have been promising would help us forever. It never does. They get the carrot, we get the stick every time.

      2) Obamacare was designed to destroy the health insurance industry. This is the stepping stone to single payer. Yes, Obamacare is fucked up. I know a lot of people, very Liberal people who will tell you what a disaster it is, but it had to be done this way to get to what's next. Trumps answer is repeal and replace. Replace with what? With the same system we had before that was already heading for insolvency? The previous system was already starting to fail because of how many Americans were uninsured, but who in reality were still going and getting medical care, but weren't paying for it.

      http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/hatch-obamacare-was-designed-become-single-payer-system

      Here's the argument against single payer, fat people and smokers have a tough time getting treatment. Hey, here's a novel idea, exercise, eat better, and stop inhaling shit that you know is going to kill you. If you want to live, do the right thing, or go die, you're choice. If that sounds harsh, it is, but the reason it is this way is because so many people want to pretend that these issues don't exist, and we don't need to fix them.

      Let's be honest, no system is perfect and there are no simple and painless solutions to the problems society faces, but that's no reason to do nothing, or to keep banging our head against the same wall over and over again.

      http://www.investors.com/politics/commentary/u-s-shouldnt-copy-u-k-s-collapsing-single-payer-health-care-system/

      Because fat people (not in all cases, but in a lot) and smokers can control their behavior. They are going to be penalized for their bad choices by being made to go to the back of the line. Why should someone who smokes two packs a day get the same treatment as someone who exercises and eats well and doesn't smoke? I get a credit on my insurance now for being a non-smoker and for submitting to a health assessment. I think that's great. It encourages you to do the right thing.

      Im a unionized worker. I have employer provided healthcare. I'm one of the few lucky ones that do, but even our premiums and copays are skyrocketing. At some point, even I'm going to be forced into single payer.

    6. That was then, this is now, Dimmy.

      Delete
    7. Jacob, the fat people/smokers aspect is such a tiny part of the overall problem, it's straw-grasping. You are straining out gnats and swallowing camels.

      And there are other factors, for example, the heavy hand of Big Pharma.

      I've consulted an orthopedic surgeon about knee replacement, and it involves taking a new generation anticoagulant to prevent blood clots post-surgery. The cost of those things for people without insurance is ... paralyzing. Even with prescription drug coverage, they are prohibitive.

      Didn't used to be this way. When I had my first job, I remember breaking out my checkbook and writing a check for doctor visits. I've tried to do that off and on since, and a lot of times they won't let you. You have to file and insurance claim (which involves adding the cost of processing by the ins. company).

      What changed how medical care is covered (federal meddling is a lot of it, but by no means all) needs to be reversed.

    8. Replace with what? Check his campaign website.

    9. There was not even an attempt to correct health care insurance industry before the monstrosity of Obamacare. Guess what. Single payer will be worse. Laugh at Sarah Palin if you want, but there will be panels, committees, whatever, that decide who gets treatment and who doesn't -- death panels, if you please. The elderly will be disproportionately targeted for withholding medical care.

      Ok, Trump's first solution, straight from his website, to a problem that affects "all Americans", Health Savings Accounts. Gotta love it. What poor folks have money to save for health care? Again, more policies designed by a system of white supremacy, meant only to help those who are already fortunate. This is exactly what we mean. Trumps policies are only designed to help those who are already doing ok. That's not where we are going as a country. If you don't want to start helping your fellow man, better start packing.

    12. Trump's attempt to redeem himself in the second debate crashed and burned. The reviews are coming in and they are hammering him. Multiple test groups are saying Hillary flat out dominated him again 2-1. There's one more debate, but at this point he could be stunning in it and it would probably fail to move the needle.

      This is the last week of voter registration for most states and the angry white voter that he desperately needs has not registered in any large numbers. Early voting is already taking place, so none of those voters will be changing their minds. As the undecided voter pool dwindles over the next two weeks, Trump loses any chance he has of convincing them to vote for him. Research has shown that once people have decided and the election reaches the two week mark, they rarely change their minds. The critical phase of the election has passed and Trump flat out failed to convince enough Americans to vote for him so he would win.

      Delete
    13. That is correct, white voter registration is down. Trump is fucked! Tonight he spoke directly to the base, but he can't win on the base alone. The Bill Clinton stunts are going to backfire. They are going to continue to drip audio and video until election day. Several of the questions asked tonight put him on record and you can bet they will be coming back around. Trump is burnt toast and so is the Republican Party. The #1 reason I want to see Clinton win is the Supreme Court. That's about it. I think Michelle runs in 2020 and 2024.

  5. THE List of 386 Obama Accomplishments so far, With Citations

    In 2008, we elected the most progressive president in history. And regardless of the negativity, when you actually look at the record, there has been a lot of progress since January 20, 2009. If you’ll recall, when he took over the reins of power, the economy was in free-fall and we were practically a world laughingstock. That is no longer the case.

    Here is a list of many of President Obama’s accomplishments as President. Every one of them has a citation, so no one can dismiss them out of hand, although many have tried since I started to compile this list Even with the obstacles we gave him, especially the Republican Congress, this President will leave behind a wonderful legacy.

    If we want to win elections – and in a democracy, that has to be our main goal – we have to make people want to vote for us. That means accentuating the positive, and talking about how great we are, especially compared to the alternative.

  13. And Did You Know?

    Despite the characterizations of some, Obama’s success rate in winning congressional votes on issues was an unprecedented 96.7% for his first year in office. Though he is often cited as superior to Obama, President Lyndon Johnson’s success rate in 1965 was only 93%. http://n.pr/i3d7cY

    And of course…

    Despite the odds, became the first black president and then, was reelected by a wide margin.

  14. Dimmy, good job of copying and pasting. Who compiled the list ... "with citations"? Did you read all the sources? Or are you just swallowing it on faith? What kind of list could you compile from your own knowledge?

    Does your stolen and unattributed list mention fake "shovel ready" jobs? All the "green" energy companies that guzzled tax dollars and then went belly up, starring Solyndra, but by no means confined to it? Cash for Clunkers? The bailouts of banks and financial institutions?

    I notice that Eric Holder's gunrunning to Mexican drug cartels isn't listed. That got border patrol agent Brian Terry murdered. Obama inspired the war on cops, starting with calling cops "stupid" after Skip Gates-gate...

    He has attempted to shield Islamic terrorists who've attacked Americans on our own soil. When people complain that he won't even use the highly accurate term, "radical Islamic terrorist" he trots out Josh Earnest to give the lamest "explanation" imaginable.

    I'm not a "birther." I don't know where he was born, I wasn't there. But he's not an American in his heart. He hates it and wants to change it. Will be glad when he's gone. January 21 can't come soon enough.

    The government and it's cronies are doing fine under Obama -- but the country and the people, not so much...

    2. Keep on lying and denying while you get ignore and Obama goes in the history books. Just think, every day more people like you die from old age knowing that their white supremacist views have been rejected by the majority of Americans and that the CBF is going into the trash heap.

  15. Simpson, I'm not talking about the transition of power. I'm talking about Obama being GONE. On Jan 20th, he is not gone. He is still there for half a day, up until noon....

    Per uspolitics.about.com:

    "Inauguration Day 2017, the day the winner of the 2016 presidential election will assume the role of chief executive of the United States, is Friday, Jan. 20, 2017. The nation's 45th president will be sworn in on the steps of the U.S. Capitol at noon, when the term of President Barack Obama expires."

    Thus, the first full day he is gone is January 21.

    There's been controversy about Obama's birthplace for years. You can believe those who say he was born in A, or you can believe those who say he was born in B (or C or D), but unless you were there, and know where it occurred, you can only believe, not know.

    Boy, you sure can get your knickers in a knot when somebody challenges anti-racist jackassery, can't you?

  17. The consensus at work this morning is that Trump slaughtered Hillary. So shortsighted. What the Right is too dumb to realize is that Trump FAILed big time last night. His performance was geared to his base, but it's not his base that is going to elect him.

    1. You must work with a bunch of people who have limited intellectual vision or are desperate for a Trump victory. The focus groups are showing Trump crashed and burned, but not as badly as the first debate. The junk polls that have no validity are useless and not factored in anything. Trump needed to score major points in order to reverse the damage his campaign suffered over the last two weeks. He failed to do that. The only thing he really managed to do was respond to his base and that won't win the election for him.

      That's a huge problem. He is so focused on that base. He has missed the point that the elections are won by appealing to the moderates of America. He has alienated them instead. His campaign is in crash and burn mode. It will probably end up being the case material for how not to run a presidential campaign.

    2. Yes. I don't talk about work much for obvious reasons. The corporate structure at my work is very diversity/inclusiveness/non-discrimination heavy. We have a very diverse workplace, and in that respect, the company itself is probably a leader in our industry, a fact I'm proud of. Unfortunately, there is an existing good ol' boy network in place that is in the background of all that. In fact, one of our co-workers was fired last year for a racist Facebook post, which I agreed with (the firing, not the post), not because of what he said (which was reprehensible) but because he linked his Facebook page to our workplace (a really stupid move on his part, and what was ultimately responsible for his firing). I have to hold my tongue around co-workers. It's a unionized workforce, blue collar, salt of the earth folks. A large portion of the folks I work with directly are Trump bobbleheads. They're the kind of folks you'd see at a Flagger rally or gun show. I blend in quite well based on looks alone, but in ideology, I'm nowhere near inline. I'm kind of an outlier at work. It was great to hear how snowballed they all are this morning. They really believe Trump did a great job last night, but this is a testament to how dumb they really are. The base is the base. It's a given for Trump. Almost his entire base is racist, they know it, which is why they celebrate being in the basket. They are proud of it. But they just don't get it, Trump cannot win with them alone, and last night he only pushed away the votes of those he needs to win. So I had to smile inside seeing them all fist bumping over Trump's big win last night. It's pretty gratifying being able to see the ship going down while they all party it up. The Clinton campaign has already signaled there is more audio/video coming down the pike, worse then what we've already heard/seen. Trump fell right into the trap last night and the Republicans don't seem like they even noticed. This is why I predict total meltdowns in November. They really are too dumb to see what is coming.

    3. At this point the Clinton campaign can just sit back and run yesterday's news every day and coast to victory.

      Yep, the base will whine like a high speed saw blade chewing through pine boards, but that will make this cheddar taste that much better.

      I hope Trump can and will straighten out a lot of what's wrong with this pitiful excuse of a country, but my main reason for supporting him is economic. I hope he will bring back prosperity -- private sector companies and jobs that will help people who have been out of work and hurting for so long.

Others are going to turn to their next great white savior. Dr. Mike is just an extension of the same mindset that wrecked their Party. They wanted this, they're getting it. We gave them an opportunity, but they wouldn't listen. What will happen when Dennis Durham wants to help Susie raise the flag again? Will Susan finally get vocal? Or will they continue to allow the full scale takeover of Heritage like they have the GOP? Look at Barnum. She's another one. No one says one word while she gets certificates from Heritage groups while she encourages whites to hate blacks with so much vitriol that it makes the stomach turn. This is what they're doing to their Confederate Heritage. Look at Chastain, who in the Heritage movement has called her out for putting forward the manufactured conspiracy theory of "White Genocide", which originated with the white power crowd? No one. Folks, start popping the popcorn, seriously. You're going to need it for the next 30 days.
