  • Why We Must Unify the Republican Party Before the Convention: President Hillary Clinton

    04/29/2016 3:52:59 PM PDT · 20 of 29
    Bluestocking to Brookhaven

    According to the latest RealClearPolitics polls, in head-to-head competitions, Hillary Clinton beats Donald Trump by 7.3 percent, while, on the other hand, John Kasich beats Hillary by 7.5 percent. In the middle, Hillary beats Ted Cruz by 3.3%.

    The problem for the Republicans is not disunity, it’s that Republican primary voters have failed to support the best candidate to beat Hillary — John Kasich. However, all is not lost — yet — since Republican primary voters have also failed to give a majority of their votes to the candidate who has the worst chance of beating Hillary — Donald Trump.

    John Kasich or Ted Cruz will either be nominated at the Republican Convention, or, if Donald Trump is nominated instead, John Kasich, as Governor of Ohio, will spend the Convention calling out the Ohio National Guard to protect Clevelanders from the violent organized protests that the George Soros/Black Lives Matter/Bill Ayres psychiatric wing of the Democratic party is planning to unleash if Trump wins the nomination.

    There is still a chance to save Cleveland and the Republican party. Let’s hope Republican voters in the remaining primary states rise to the challenge so we can save America from Hillary.

    When the Chinese economy grows by 6.5%, analysts proclaim the end of the world is upon us. But when the U.S. economy grows by only a meager .5%, as it did during the last quarter, the same analysts simply shrug and try to find something nice to say about consumer spending or whatever.

    If China in its supposed economic misery keeps growing 13% faster than the stagnant U.S., China will soon rule the world and the U.S. dollar will collapse. Time to buy gold.

    If Donald Trump hears that Ann’s called him ‘’mental’’ and other unflattering things, his likeliest response will be to attack her looks — for example, by announcing that ‘’She’s no longer a 10!’’ as he said about Heidi Klum, or he could find the most unflattering picture of Ann ever taken and have his friends at the National Enquirer spread it across their cover next week.

  • National Enquirer scoop: A CIA-backed hooker assassinated Justice Scalia

    Bluestocking to SeekAndFind

    The only person likely to care enough about Antonin Scalia’s demise and powerful enough to find the truth about what happened to him would be President Ted Cruz.

    Ted Cruz served as a Supreme Court clerk for Chief Justice Renquist in 1996, so he would have known Antonin Scalia personally, and as a Conservative he would have admired him. Also, as a champion of the law he would want justice to be served regarding Antonin Scalia’s unusual death and its aftermath.

    Certainly Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton don’t care at all if Justice Scalia was offed by a CIA prostitute.

    Since Hillary is most likely to become President next year, and Ted Cruz is most likely to be one of the Senate leaders who will oppose her destructive policies, Ted Cruz will have a good chance to win the Republican presidential nomination in 2020 and to go on to the White House.

    So the strange case of Antonin Scalia will not die. And admirers of The National Enquirer will have a second reason besides the exposure of John Edwards’s peccadillos to promote tabloid journalism as a bastion of truth.

    The purpose of polls isn’t just to give people something to argue about — polls also help candidates determine which voting groups they need to focus more resources on.

    The numerous recent polls showing Donald Trump losing by large percentages among women voters should have been a wake-up call for him to show his more women-friendly side.

    So what did he do?

    He bashed Ted Cruz’s wife.

    This not only confirmed accusations that Donald Trump is a misogynist, it also gave Ted Cruz the opportunity to become a knight in shining armor towards women by declaring to Donald Trump, ‘’Leave Heidi the hell alone!’’

    If Donald Trump doesn’t deal with his women problem soon, he can’t win the presidency, but is he capable of doing so?

    More quotes:

    ‘’In the end they will lay their freedom at our feet and say to us, Make us your slaves, but feed us.’’ ~Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Grand Inquisitor

    ‘’The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.’’ ~Alexis de Tocqueville

    It’s no wonder that in times of economic hardship more Americans have been willing to give up their freedom in return for bread and security. The Great Depression ushered in the New Deal and the Welfare State.

    And the greater the Welfare State, the greater the poverty.

    The Subprime Housing Crash of 2008 ushered in Obama for two terms and more socialism, and the result has been more poverty, more unemployment, and therefore more people willing to give up their freedom for bread and security.

    Only prosperity will restore Americans’ confidence and desire for more freedom, but how will that happen if our poverty rolls keep increasing due to our increasingly socialistic system?

    Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have completely opposite views on immigration.

    Donald Trump wants to build a wall on the Mexican border to keep out immigrants, while Hillary wants completely open borders so that immigrants will flood in.

    Yet the clearer it becomes that Hillary would overwhelm Donald Trump in a presidential election, the more fervently Donald Trump’s supporters promote his candidacy.

    The worst nightmare for those who fear and abhor immigrants would be life under a Hillary Clinton presidency, where immigrants would be welcomed with open arms and illegal immigrants already here would be given full citizenship.

    But unless the Republicans nominate someone who can beat Hillary, that will be life in America.

    Trump supporters despise the Republican Establishment and want to defeat its favorite candidate, Ted Cruz. Yet, on the other hand, they’re doing everything possible to help the Democratic Establishment achieve its goal of putting Hillary in the White House by promoting Donald Trump who is most likely to lose to Hillary.

    Evidence of the pathetic state of our post-literate, dumbed-down culture can be found in the latest Amazon.com bestseller list — where 61 of the top 100 books are either children’s books, coloring books, or cook books. Words have become so...yesterday.

    Even Oprah’s bookclub selections, which used to be top sellers, have been displaced by perennial favorites such as ‘’Go the F**k to Sleep,’’ ‘’Calm the F**k Down,’’ and ‘’Potty.’’

    Is it any wonder that a vulgarian like Donald Trump and an old woman like Hillary Clinton who can barely deliver a coherent speech have captured the public’s imagination and are heading for their parties’ presidential nominations?

    What will happen when the minority of Americans who are intelligent enough to read and hold jobs decide to Get the F**k Out of Here, instead of living among imbeciles under the regimes of Hillary or Donald Trump?

    So where would Donald Trump drop a nuclear bomb if he wanted to destroy ISIS? On Brussels? On London? On San Diego?

    It’s not enough that Donald Trump has given Hillary and the Democrats ammunition to attack him as a racist, misogynist, and xenophobe, he’s now given them the opportunity to portray him as Dr. Strangelove.

    Every time Donald Trump opens his mouth, Hillary becomes more and more inevitable in her quest for the White House.

  • Brussels Attack Lapses Acknowledged by Belgian Justice Minister

    Bluestocking to E. Pluribus Unum

    It’s not impossible for countries to deal successfully with Muslim terrorists. Israel has been doing it for its entire existence.

    Why have Brussels, Paris, New York, and London been the focus of massive terrorist bombings while Tel Aviv and Jerusalem have managed to avoid them?

    Because Israel has better intelligence abilities than other countries — abilities that Israel would certainly be happy to share if asked by countries like Belgium whose bumblings proved fatal this week to 34 innocent victims.

    Unfortunately, Belgians think of Israel as a country to be boycotted, principally for trying to protect itself against Muslim terrorist organizations — Hamas and the PLO; so it’s unlikely that Belgium will turn to Israel for help protecting itself against its own Muslim terrorist attackers, ISIS.

    Have Easter bonnets also been declared verboten by the Belgian authorities?

    If Belgians are interested in ingratiating themselves with Muslim terrorists in order to avoid becoming suicide-bombing targets, they should dress like Muslim terrorists.

    The men can grow beards and wear ‘’Kiss Me, I’m ISIS!’’ tee-shirts, while the women can array themselves in full burkas.

    It’s a wonder the Belgian government hasn’t already issued a mandatory Arab dress-code for all its citizens — at least until it figures out how to prevent recurrent suicide bombings.

    If it can’t figure that out, ISIS will take over Belgium and proclaim its own Arab dress-code, with beheadings for noncompliance.

    In the meantime, the Belgians are demonstrating their lack of seriousness about dealing with their problems by issuing a fatwa against children in Purim costumes.

  • Ted Cruz Is Right About Policing Muslim Neighborhoods

    For years Muslims in Europe have been murdering Europeans.

    However, since almost all of the European victims of Muslim hatred have been Jewish, no great incentive has developed to get serious about policing Muslim neighborhoods.

    Now Muslim murderers have become equal-opportunity terrorists, targeting all Europeans, regardless of race, creed, or degree of abject servitude to Muslim causes such as the destruction of Israel.

    Only a few months ago, Brussels was the scene of the European Union’s enactment of a continent-wide boycott against Israeli goods. Yet Muslim terrorists have not been appeased; instead, they’ve increased their deadly attacks against their European anti-Israel allies.

    Europe’s continuing failure to improve its Muslim-neighborhood policing threatens to turn Europe into one big Muslim neighborhood. But do Europeans care enough to do anything about it?

    Organizations that are serious about not countenancing ad hominem attacks do not invite people like Donald Trump to give speeches at their events.

    What was AIPAC expecting?

    Donald Trump is the political version of Don Rickles on steroids. And his attacks aren’t merely against individuals, they’re also against entire groups, for example, Mexicans, whom he called ‘’criminals and rapists,’’ the hundred million-plus Muslims in the world, and the Pope and his 1.2 million adherents.

    Just because the only group Donald Trump hasn’t attacked yet are Jews doesn’t mean AIPAC should have given him a forum to attack others.

    The nomination is still open.

    We’ve gone through two Super Tuesdays and about fifty Republican debates, yet Donald Trump has still failed to close the deal.

    That’s why we’re talking about Ted Cruz.

    If Donald Trump can’t rise above his current 40% in the polls, and Ted Cruz and John Kasich together can win a majority of the convention delegates — their combined polling numbers currently add up to 48% — they can combine forces at the convention, and one of the two can win the nomination while the other can be chosen as the vice-presidential candidate.

    If that happens, the Republicans would have a winning ticket of Cruz and Kasich — both of whom are beating Hillary in head-to-head competitions, one of whom has the best chance of delivering the must-win state of Ohio in the general election, and neither of whom suffers from the serious Donald Trumpian handicap of having a 65% disapproval rating.

    That’s the Republicans’ winning formula.

    Never again would the Clintons be continually in our faces. Never again would we have to cringe to embarrassing outbursts by Donald Trump such as his attack on Brussels as a ‘’hell-hole’’ following ISIS’s deadly attack on the city when the Belgians need our support not our schoolyard taunts.

    It would be so easy to be a civilized country again.

    Jewish people make up only 1.5% of the American population, and the great majority of them are Democrats who are concentrated in New York City and other metropolitan areas and would never vote for a Republican be he Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, or whoever.

    American Jews are important in elections because they are major political donors. However, Donald Trump is not taking donations because he’s a billionaire, so only Ted Cruz can benefit from speaking to AIPAC, which he probably did by picking up a few extra millions from his pro-Israel speech.

    But the major benefactor of Jewish money this election year is Jewish himself — Bernie Sanders, who once worked on an Israeli kibbutz.

    In a head-to-head competition between Bernie and Donald Trump, Bernie wins by 10%, compared to Hillary’s 6%. If Bernie wins the big states — New York, California, Illinois — he’ll send Hillary and Bill home to Chattauqua, and he and his comrades will overrun the Winter Palace, er, the White House.

    It’s not about Donald Trump anymore. It’s about freedom vs. a socialist dictatorship. Donald Trump and his 65% unfavorable rating cannot win the White House, so only Ted Cruz or John Kasich can save us. When will Republicans wake up?

    Whatever the Anti-Trump movement has been doing, it’s been very effective.

    Sixty-five percent of Americans view Donald Trump so unfavorably that they would never vote for him. And in the latest RealClearPolitics head-to-head competition between Hillary and Trump, Hillary is ahead by 6.3%, while Ted Cruz and John Kasich both beat Hillary, Kasich by 7.4%.

    So anyone who wants Hillary to win the presidency can do one of two things — either vote for Trump in the remaining primaries so he can be the Republican nominee and thereby lose to Hillary by more than 6%, or vote for Hillary directly in the general election.

    On the other hand, anyone who wants to keep Hillary out of the White House and elect a Republican instead, can simply vote for John Kasich in the remaining primaries so that he can win the nomination and beat Hillary by more than 7% in November.

    The arithmetic is clear. It will be either John Kasich or Ted Cruz against Hillary, or Hillary can start picking out drapes for the White House.

    Does Obama understand that Boris Johnson is not only the popular mayor of London and a member of Parliament but also a leading British journalist who can skewer the objects of his displeasure such as Obama into pathetic squirming insects, and is also the odds-on favorite to oppose Prime Minister David Cameron for leadership of the Conservative party and therefore of Britain?

    If Donald Trump had walked into a bar in an Hispanic neighborhood and started yelling that Mexicans are criminals and rapists, as he did in a speech, he would have been punched in the face.

    And every fair-minded witness would have agreed that he had been asking for it.

    The same outcome would have occurred if Donald Trump had denounced the Pope, not in a speech but in a Catholic neighborhood bar, or attacked Muslims as not being worthy of American citizenship in a Muslim neighborhood. In fact, as an arrogant white billionaire, Donald Trump couldn’t walk down the street in most Black inner-city neighborhoods without being accosted.

    So when angry Hispanics, Muslims, Catholics, Blacks, and members of other groups whom Donald Trump has attacked confront him to protest at his rallies, no fair-minded person can disagree that he had it coming.

    Of course violence is bad, but so is provoking it by hate speech directed at particular groups, which is Donald Trump’s principal form of expression.

    The immediate problem for Donald Trump isn’t that two-thirds of Americans have an unfavorable view of him, it’s that more than two-thirds of Republicans — 70% — have an unfavorable view of him.

    According to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, Donald Trump is supported by 30% of Republicans.

    What’s remarkable is that two months ago the same poll showed him at 33% support.

    Which means that after two months of winning primaries and receiving very public gushing endorsements from Sarah Palin, Chris Christie, and Ben Carson, Donald Trump is worse off than he’s been at any time during his campaign.

    Donald Trump can’t make America great again if he can’t make his own presidential candidacy great again.

    But how is he going to do that? By attacking Ohio’s popular governor? By attacking Ted Cruz, the favorite of the Conservative and Evangelical voters who are critical to winning the White House for Republicans? Or maybe by holding a poorly attended rally in Cleveland where there are virtually no Republican voters, but whose Congressional Representative, Marcia Fudge of the Congressional Black Caucus, used the occasion of his speech to very publicly denounce Donald Trump as a racist?

Just as the media focuses more on car crashes than the race itself during the Indy 500, the media has begun to focus more on protest incidents during Trump’s rallies than on anything Trump may be saying during his speeches.

    History will record that at the time of Justice Scalia’s death the Democratic party was so corrupt that it’s leading candidate for president was a women who, according to overwhelming evidence, had committed serious crimes involving America’s national security.

    So to future historians it will not seem farfetched that the head of this corrupt Democratic party, President Obama, might have had something to do with a mysterious death involving a Supreme Court justice who died with a pillow over his face and the absence of a customary autopsy.

    Justice Scalia deserves to rest in peace — not to go through history as a possible murder victim. But in these corrupt times does anyone in Washington have the courage to stand up and demand the truth, if not justice for those who wielded the fatal pillow and then did everything to cover up what they had done?

  • PUTIN IS EXPLOITING EUROPE‚ÄôS NUMBING LACK OF DIRECTION

    It’s not that America hasn’t been leading the West. The problem is that it’s been leading the West, particularly Europe, over a cliff.

    The greater the genocidal atrocity in Syria has become and the more the Syrian refugee crisis has exploded to the point of threatening Europe, the less interested in Syria and its problems has the Obama administration become.

    Yet at the same time it’s been ignoring Syria, the more obsessed the Obama administration has become with its version of the final solution to the Israel problem — as it attacks Israel day after day for not giving up its sovereign territory to Palestinian terrorists.

    To the Obama administration, the horrors perpetrated by the Syrian president against his own people, including the use of chemical weapons, and the refusal of the Prime Minister of Israel to refrain from planning new housing on the West Bank are not morally equivalent.

    Instead, it’s become clear that Israel’s actions are considered WORSE by the Obama administration than those of the Syrian president.

    When has John Kerry ever criticized the Syrian president?

    As for Obama, the only time he has ever threatened the Syrian president was when he drew a red line against the use of chemical weapons, which the Syrian president promptly disregarded without any consequences from Obama.

    Yet day after day, Obama and the West threaten Israel and retaliate with boycotts for Israel’s refusal to relinquish a major portion of its country.

    This is madness. And the West is suffering day after day as the Syrian crisis worsens because Obama is too obsessed with Israel to care what happens in Syria.

  • Oil price crash: Saudis told to embrace austerity as debt defaults loom

    The Saudis need to go back to the drawing board.

    Normally, when oil is abundant and its price goes down, economies prosper.

    Prosperity, in turn, creates the need for more oil, causing oil prices to go up again.

    But the opposite of that has been occurring. China, the world’s biggest oil importer, is going through a recession, as are the U.S. and other major countries.

    The Saudis need to figure out why this is happening before they too head for bankruptcy. Then they should take steps, such as lowering their oil production for awhile, to try to get the global oil situation back on an even keel.

    Then they can start trying to destroy other nations’ oil industries once again if they so desire. If they continue to stand around doing nothing, they’re more doomed than the countries they’re trying to destroy.

  • An Indictment Against Conservative Media

    Bluestocking to EveningStar

    There are two completely different political philosophies — Conservatism and Trumpism.

    Conservatism stands for a particular set of principles, while Trumpism stands for nothing except what its namesake, Donald Trump, thinks is good for himself at any particular moment — including attacking Conservatives like Ben Carson and Ted Cruz in an effort to destroy them.

    Conservative principles can’t survive if Conservative candidates are destroyed.

    Which means that Donald Trump has become a human wrecking ball for the future of Conservatism in America.

    The Mark Levins and Rush Limbaughs of the media must take sides. There is no middle way. They’re either for Conservatism or for Donald Trumpism, which is the mortal enemy of Conservatism.

    Last month when the Federal Reserve raised interest rates, the yield on U.S. 10-year Treasury bonds was 2.25%. Today, it’s 1.92%. No wonder people are worried about negative interest rates.

    In the meantime, everyone who buys U.S. Treasury bonds now will receive 33 basis points less in interest than they would have if they’d bought them last month. And what will stop this trend from continuing and thereby discouraging potential U.S. bond buyers from looking elsewhere for better investments?

  • National Review loses GOP debate sponsorship over anti-Trump issue

    Donald Trump represents an extreme version of everything liberals despise about Republicans.

    Donald Trump is a mean-spirited multi-billionaire whose hatred of immigrants, women, minorities, and everyone who doesn’t agree with him is expressed daily and loudly across every form of media.

    Yet the single publication that has come out most strongly against him is the Conservative ‘’National Review,’’ while the entire liberal mainstream media remains silent — except for egging him on to make ever more outrageous attacks against everything liberals hold dear.

    There is a concept known as giving someone enough rope to hang himself with.

    For example, a political party (Democrat) might stand back during the primary season while a candidate from the opposing party (Republican) goes on a six-month rampage antagonizing so many voters that he will not be able to win the general election.

    Does anyone really believe that the liberal media despises Donald Trump LESS than the Conservative National Review does?

    Or that once Donald Trump wins the nomination the liberal media won’t suddenly burst forth and tear him limb from limb by simply repeating the outrageous attacks he’s been making that have so antagonized voters?

    The writer is mystified by ‘’the astonishing lack of criticism that attaches to Trump for the things he says.’’

    When countries want to punish other countries, they impose trade sanctions against them, hoping to bring them to their knees — for example, the West’s trade sanctions against Russia after its invasion of Ukraine and our long-term Cuban trade embargo.

    By adopting anti-trade policies as Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders propose to do, such as by lifting tariffs on imports, which would be answered by reciprocal tariffs against us, would be the equivalent of America imposing a trade embargo against itself.

    The last time such madness was enacted by our government was the Smoot-Hawley tariffs of the early 1930s, whose beggar-thy-neighbor consequences caused our simple depression to become a decade-long global Great Depression.

    Russia at least has powerful allies like China to help it function during the West’s anti-Russia sanctions, and Cuba has been supported by other countries.

    But if the U.S. attempts to commit economic suicide by imposing a global trade embargo against itself, no one will help us.

  • Poll: Who would America rather have a beer with? Trump or Cruz?

    Bluestocking to Enlightened1

    Since Ted Cruz graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, 99.9% of Americans wouldn’t understand a word he was saying after a few beers allowed him to ‘’be himself.’’

    However, his great intelligence could well make him a great president if elected.

    How could that happen?

    The only realistic scenario for a Cruz presidency is if Bernie Sanders wins the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries, leading global investors to dump U.S. stocks and bonds at the prospect of a Socialist U.S. president.

    The ensuing U.S. economic collapse would force responsible voters to become serious — meaning that the clown-like, unstable Donald Trump would be rejected in favor of the serious Ted Cruz as the 2016 Republican presidential nominee, who would then overcome either the Socialist Bernie Sanders or the untrustworthy, corrupt and unstable Hillary Clinton to become President.

    Maybe it’s a pipedream to imagine American voters becoming serious enough to elect a serious president.

    However, it’s not a pipedream at all to imagine the global investment community throwing in the towel on U.S. stocks and bonds if they don’t.

    If a Muslim-American went on raging Twitter rampages against the U.S., the FBI would be alarmed and monitor him as a danger to the country.

    On the other hand, if a leading presidential candidate like Donald Trump goes on raging Twitter rampages against an opponent, that’s considered merely laughable, even though if the raging presidential candidate becomes president he can be expected to go on raging Twitter rampages — and worse — against anyone who disagrees with him, from Senators to foreign heads of state, to mere citizens on Internet sites.

    We can handle nutty but powerless anti-American Muslims twittering away on their computers, but a nutty President with power is a true danger to the country.

    At the end of the book version of ‘’The Big Short,’’ the author reports that Michael Burry, having become completely disillusioned with Wall Street, had excitedly taken up a new venture — almond farming, in California.

    Because almonds need extraordinary amounts of water to grow and California has gone into a major long-term drought, it’s hard to imagine a worse investment than California almond farming.

    So Michael Burry is not necessarily the best purveyor of investment wisdom.

    It makes sense, though, that he’s become interested in water. In water technology, Israel is the undisputed leader of the world. So investing in Israel makes sense.

    At least Howard Dean waited until after he lost the Iowa Caucuses before going berserk. Donald Trump, on the other hand, is starting to lose it at the mere thought that he might not win in Iowa.
