  • Hate unleashed-How Donald Trump unleashed the Rightwing bigots that the GOP once kept under control

    There has been a lot of talk over this presidential campaign about the lack of enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton compared with the excitement and energy among Donald Trumpís followers. It is a bit overblown; there are plenty of highly enthusiastic Clinton fans who are very excited to see the first woman president. But it is nonetheless true that Trump has inspired a group of remarkably passionate and committed followers. And while many of these people have legitimate economic gripes that are finding expression in Trumpís ďangry outsiderĒ populism, what electrifies many of them is something else entirely. They chant, ďBuild...

    The repercussions just keep rolling in: Hillary Clintonís recent decision to call Donald Trumpís fans a ďbasketful of deplorablesĒ has turned into ďnothing short of a crisisĒ for the Democratic presidential nominee, says veteran pollster John Zogby. Ah, but it gets worse. ďThe entire fainting and pneumonia issue is nothing short of a disaster,Ē he continues, noting that the distress and drama of Mrs. Clintonís health challenges have prompted voters to ask visceral questions about her truthfulness and judgment.

    The Left hates Donald Trump, but nothing has inspired more invective than his outreach to the black community. Itís like he has barged into an exclusive club wearing the wrong color shoes. In a recent column in The New York Times, Charles Blow sounds positively unhinged by Trumpís overture to African-Americans, writing a hate-filled screed that calls the GOP candidate a bigot, a reprobate, and a charlatan whose soul is ďdarkĒ and who is ďa prime example of the worst of humanity.Ē And thatís just in the opening paragraphs.

    She acts as if this is a traditional campaign against a traditional opponent. Run around with your hand out in August, start to make your run in September. But Trump is not a traditional opponent. This is not a traditional campaign. You know what the headlines are about Clinton these days, when they're not about more trouble with her emails? They are about how much money she is raising in places like the Hamptons. You know the last person who thought he could beat Trump with a great, big war chest of money? Jeb Bush.

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clintonís choice to head her transition team is stoking anger and loathing among left-wing anti-fracking activists and anti-trade groups. Clintonís choice to handpick former Democratic Sen. Ken Salazar of Colorado to lead her transition team is leaving critics of the TPP trade policy and anti-fossil fuel activists scratching their heads, as the former secretary of Interior has expressed support in the past for the trade deal and fracking. Neil Sroka, the communications director of Democracy for America, told reporters Saturday that the choice to pick Salazar does not necessarily serve as a death knell to Clintonís...

    Donald Trump is heading to November like a certain zeppelin heading to New Jersey, in a darkening sky that crackles with electricity.

    Donald Trumpís campaign shake-up is being seen on Capitol Hill as yet another shot across the bows of the GOP establishment. The changes in effect demote Paul Manafort, the campaign chairman who had been urging Trump to show more restraint, and promote pollster Kellyanne Conway to the position of campaign manager. But the real bombshell came with the recruitment of Steve Bannon, an executive with the conservative news organization Breitbart, as the campaignís CEO. Breitbart has been synonymous with attacks on the GOP leadership, especially in recent weeks and months. A particular foe: Speaker Paul Ryan.

    Hillary Clinton made history, but that may not be enough to get her to 270. Some Democrats are still worried that Donald Trump might win, given the level of volatility this election cycle, how Trump deflects media attacks like Teflon, and the high level of Democratic discontent within their own ranks over Clinton’s nomination. Those feelings were intensified when leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee showed staffers trying to find ways to derail Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign. The amount of booing, even during Clinton’s acceptance speech Thursday night just highlighted those divisions within the Democratic Party (via The Hill):...

    PHILADELPHIA -- Democrats put in plenty of good words for Hillary Clinton during their convention yesterday but they focused most of their energy on trying to assassinate the character of Donald Trump.

The latest Democrat attack line accuses Trump of committing treason for asking Russia or any other governments that may have Clinton's mountain of missing emails in their possession to return them to the United States. Meanwhile, the prospect of Democrat unity going into the November election fades with every passing hour. Hatred, discord, and disgust are...

Don't comfort yourself too much by looking at the horse race polls. Those are about Donald Trump's weakness, not Clinton's strength.

    RUSH: Now, folks, I went through a lot of mainstream media over the weekend and this morning, and there's a theme out there, and you might have heard it bandied about in any number of places. You've heard it bandied about in the Republican establishment. You've heard it bandied about in the campaign, certain sectors. You've heard media people talk about it -- and that is that Donald Trump cannot win a general election. "He just can't. Why, his negatives are way too high. It'd be the absolute worst thing the Republican Party could do!" Who's telling us this? Once...

    "This has gotten way out of hand." So goes the oft-repeated refrain from top-tier DNC bosses to rank and file operatives who are all now scrambling to try and figure out what is an increasingly serious Bernie Sanders dilemma. The Sanders' dynamic playing out within the Democrat Party is in fact a far greater and more important story than the Donald Trump vs GOP Establishment meme that the Mainstream Media has put on a repeating loop for the last several months. As combative and boisterous as Trump can be, his views represent a significant wing of BOTH the Republican and...
  • ‚ÄėThat‚Äôs Not True‚Äô: Dems TERRIFIED By Black Woman‚Äôs Remarks At Trump Rally

    On Tuesday, presidential hopeful Donald Trump held a rally in Michigan, and over 10,000 people attended, including women from all walks of life. But one black woman in particular spoke up, and what she had to say is beyond terrifying for the Democrats going into election season. If you follow the mainstream media, you know the current narrative is that women, especially minority women, wouldn‚Äôt ever vote for The Donald because of his ‚Äúrampant sexism‚ÄĚ combined with ‚Äúracist rhetoric.‚ÄĚ But, apparently, that‚Äôs not the case, as a video taken by the American Mirror shows.

    The professional punditry amid the Main Stream Media -on both sides of the political continuum- continue selling a narrative that Donald Trump is the easiest candidate for Hillary Clinton to beat. This pitch is based on their gaslighting claims and "opinion" and not reality. Poll after poll shows exactly the opposite. In addition to recent polling showing Donald Trump beating Hillary in NC, FL, SC, VA, MN, OH, TX and NV - Democrats, by a wide margin, fear Donald Trump more than any other Republican candidate.

    RUSH: Got these two stories here. One is in the Washington Post, and the other is in The Politico, and they're almost identical. "Supreme Court Ruling Puts Obama's Immigration Legacy in Jeopardy." That's The Politico. The Washington Post: "President Obama's Legacy is Increasingly in Legal Jeopardy." Is this not amazing? Two wholly different, separate news companies have lead stories with almost identical headlines and the same premise. Sorry, narrative. And the narrative is that that hayseed judge in Texas, that Hanen, and these three judges at it Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals who upheld that stupid hayseed judge in Texas,...

    When Monica Lewinsky reemerged in the May issue of Vanity Fair, many speculated that the timing of the infamous former White House intern’s return to the spotlight was relatively good news for Hillary Clinton. It suggested, some speculated, that Lewinsky’s determination to air the dirty laundry of the 1990s in early 2014 was good timing for Clinton, and that the issue would be fully litigated long before the 2016 campaign began in earnest. That assumption went out the window this month when Lewinsky joined Twitter and began to speak openly and without regret about the incident that made hers...
