The Trump/Bush tape controversy has ended, but probably not in the way the anti-Trump factions intended.
First, George W and Jeb!’s cousin Billy is suspended indefinitely from NBC. CNN Money reported:
The suspension was a stunning turn of events. The “Today” show recently made a multi-million-dollar bet on Bush, relocating him from Los Angeles to New York and making him a co-host.
Secondly, Google reports a yuge leap in people searching on Trump after the tape broke, far outweighing searches on Hillary. Furthermore, while two out of the top five Hillary-related search terms involve ‘seizure’ and ‘body double’ — negatives — Trump’s are all positive.
Even better, Trump’s Twitter followers have increased dramatically since the tape came out. One of The_Donald’s ‘nimble centipedes’ on Reddit has the infographic with this analysis:
Don’t mind me, just showing how since Trump Tapes came out, Hillary has gained 250,000 followers and Trump 300,000.
… And by the way, in the month before the Trump Tapes, Hillary gained 780,000 followers on twitter and Trump gained 700,000. HE HAS LITERALLY INCREASED HIS RATE OF SUPPORT SINCE THE TAPES. THANKS MSM!
Of course, the topic surfaced at the debate on Sunday evening, October 9. Trump was asked three times if he had done anything improper with women and he said no each time. Everyone watching at home rightly deduced that Hillary’s water carriers would get women to come forward during the week.
And so it happened. However, by Saturday, each story was debunked. Gateway Pundit reported (emphasis in the original):
The media clearly did not fact check these stories. They ran the stories no matter how farfetched they were. It is clear from the number of stories dropped in the last week that this was a coordinated effort, probably from inside the Hillary Clinton campaign. The goal was not to present facts to the public. Their goal was to destroy Donald Trump.
Speaking of the debate, did anyone notice the fly on Hillary’s left eyebrow?
Bubba looked most uncomfortable — the video has footage of him — as three of his female victims were in the debate audience. Kathy Shelton, whose rapist Hillary successfully defended in 1975, was with them. Trump had held a brief press conference with all the women before the debate.
Trump also brought up Clinton’s allegations of rape during the debate. Nice one. So many younger voters do not know about his predatory past and Clinton’s Correct The Record team have been busy on Twitter saying that these stories are nothing more than conspiracy theories. They were not alive when the ‘bimbo eruptions’ were in every newspaper and on television news during the 1990s.
Politico has the debate transcript. Trump rightly asked several times why the moderators were not giving him a chance to speak. Once again, not only was he debating Hillary, but the moderators too.
This was a memorable moment:
Clinton: … Last time at the first debate, we had millions of people fact checking so I expect we will have millions more fact checking because, you know, it’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.
Trump: Because you would be in jail.
Cooper: We want to remind the audience to please not talk out loud. Please do not applaud. You are just wasting time.
The third and final debate will be on Wednesday, October 19. Channel 4 will televise it, beginning around 1:30 a.m. I will be recording it to watch later.
The polls continue to be stacked in Clinton’s favour. I stop by RealClearPolitics just to check them then glance at the headlines. All week long nearly all have been about Trump and women. They have next to nothing about Hillary, which gives readers the impression she is squeaky clean.
From what I saw, the first mention of WikiLeaks content was today, October 16, with a Fox News story:
John Harwood writes for the New York Times, and appears on CNBC. He was a debate moderator. He reported back to Hillary’s campaign on how nasty he had been to Trump. They love him!
The New York Times itself allowed Hillary to veto certain quotes: if she didn’t like ’em, they were out. This is the New York Times giving its coverage to a candidate, handing over the writing, while claiming fairness …
The Boston Globe got together with Hillary’s campaign to “maximize her presence” in the paper. Where would you like to be? How can we make you more prominent?
Univision, a Spanish language station, offered campaign suggestions: Hit Trump hard they said.
The LA Times poll had Trump ahead for one month. Crossover occurred again on October 12. Fluctuation took place until yesterday, when support for Trump started to rise again. He’s only up by 1.5 points today, but it will be interesting to see what the next few days show.
Over the past week, Trump has been flying all over the eastern United States giving superb speeches to packed rallies two or three times a day. He also spoke in Ohio.
This is not simply another 4-year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not We The People reclaim control over our government …
It’s a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth, and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities …
The Clinton Machine is at the center of this power structure. We’ve seen this firsthand in the WikiLeaks documents in which Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers …
This is a struggle for the survival of our nation. This election will determine whether we are a free nation, or whether we have only the illusion of Democracy but are in fact controlled by a small handful of global special interests rigging the system …
When I declared my candidacy, I knew what bad shape our country was in. I had seen firsthand the corruption and the sickness that has taken over our politics. I knew they would throw every lie they could at me, and my family, and my loved ones.
I knew they would stop at nothing to try to stop me.
This was the first tear-jerker:
But I take all of these slings and arrows for you. I take them for our movement, so that we can have our country back.
Our great civilization, here in America and across the civilized world, has come upon a moment of reckoning …
This is a conspiracy against you, the American people.
This is our moment of reckoning as a society and as a civilization.
I didn’t need to do this. I built a great company, and I had a wonderful life. I could have enjoyed the benefits of years of successful business for myself and my family, instead of going through this absolute horror show of lies, deceptions and malicious attacks. I’m doing it because this country has given me so much, and I feel strongly it was my turn to give back …
The ending also brought tears:
Our Independence Day is at hand, and it arrives, finally, on November 8th. Join me in taking back our country, and creating a bright and glorious new dawn for our people.
He is still hitting it out of the park 15 months on and with 20+ days to go.
The main concern is voter fraud. Reports are coming in from all over the country about dead people and illegal immigrants voting. A member of James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas team spoke with the election commissioner in New York City who said that people there are being bussed around some boroughs to pump up the vote in minority neighbourhoods.
Mayor Bill de Blasio now wants the man to resign — for telling the truth. The New York Observer reported:
Mayor Bill de Blasio said today that Manhattan Board of Elections Commissioner Alan Schulkin’s “crazy” assertions about voter fraud and the municipal identification program are proof he is not fit for his job, and demanded the commissioner step down immediately …
In the video, Schulkin also accused Muslim women of using their burqas to hide their identities.
Where fraud is not taking place now, there is real concern that vote manipulation will take place on November 8. One way this might occur could be through fractionalisation:
Instead of “1” the vote is allowed to be 1/2, or 1+7/8, or any other value that is not a whole number.
It cannot be detected:
This tampering is not visible to election observers, even if they are standing in the room and watching the computer. Use of the decimalized vote feature is unlikely to be detected by auditing or canvass procedures, and can be applied across large jurisdictions in less than 60 seconds.
Insiders are sure there is a vote manipulation scheme going on with a tie-in between Soros, Smartmatic and the Uniparty combine. It is thought this occurred in the Utah primary.
In 2012, vote flipping could be employed only when the margin of difference between candidates’ votes was small, up to 5%. I read recently, although anecdotally, that it can now be done when the differential is as high as 20%. A Monster Vote is therefore needed.
On October 15, Peter Thiel said he will give $1.25 million to the Trump campaign. This will be divided between a direct donation to the campaign and another to a super PAC.
That evening Trump addressed Hindu Americans in New Jersey and was enthusiastically received. The event, Humanity United against Terror, was for charity. NJ.com reported ‘Trump energizes Hindu community’ in Edison.
In closing, with regard to WikiLeaks and the FBI, Reddit folks have decided that FBI Anon, interviewed on 4Chan is probably legit. He advises people to focus on the Clinton Foundation rather than the emails. He also said that insiders know there is enough out there for an indictment. The problem is that this runs so far and wide and deep that it will be very destabilising for the United States. He’s not saying nothing should be done but that if someone starts unravelling it, people better be ready for something the likes of which they have never seen.
This election is a spiritual fight as much as it is a political one. Donald Trump must win so he can start the necessary cleansing process.
Again, I would ask readers to say prayers for — or channel positive thoughts towards — Trump and his family. This is a very dangerous time for them — and for the United States.
