  • Social Media Patterns Show Trump Is Looking at a Landslide Victory

    Current polls show the race for President is much tighter than it really is. Ann Coulter warned us years ago in her best seller Slander that Democrats and the liberal media always use polls to manipulate and discourage conservatives from voting. Thanks to social media there is more and more evidence that the polls are way off and if things stay as they are, Trump will win in a landslide! It’s evident Hillary has a hard time filling a Union Hall while Trump regularly turns people away from his stadium and arena venues.

    The 2016 presidential election is unfolding like a Greek tragedy. With a few changes. A tragic hero, burdened by a fatal flaw, inexorably strides toward destruction; unstoppable, resolute and impervious to those who beg him to change. Thus proceeds the Donald. I hasten to stipulate that the word “hero” is hard to apply. We commonly associate the word with bravery, intelligence and vision. With Trump, not so much. But the past week has shown us a leader, and a leader he is, with a fatal flaw: an inability to adjust his character to reality. His campaign is one of personal...

    Bill was hoping that Scott Adams would disclose how Trump can be defeated. Instead, Scott Adams told him Trump will win the general election in a landslide. Via Real Clear Politics: “ SCOTT ADAMS: I’ve been studying persuasion for decades and when I saw Trump last summer displaying the tools of persuasion I thought, ‘Oh my God, he’s not a crazy clown. Everything he’s doing, including his complete ignoring of the facts, is persuasion perfection. I called him to be the landslide winner in the general election last year.

    Every year, millions of people travel to Utah to take in the beautiful and peaceful scenery in Zion National Park. According to a new study, however, the geographic stunner was formed by a massive prehistoric landslide that was far from tranquil. The study, published Thursday in the Geological Society of America, said the park’s flat valley floor owes its creation to the collapse of a wall of Navajo Sandstone that was almost 900 miles high. Weak layers in the underlying Kayenta Formation sent debris shooting across the canyon at speeds that likely reached 90 miles per second. It's believed that...

    Mayor Rodrigo Duterte of Davao City in Mindanao is now president elect of the Philippines. His path to the presidency was controversial, riddled with expletives and reduced his detractors to mud slinging and comparisons with Hitler. But the mud failed to stick: with almost all precincts reporting, he looked to have won the race to the presidency with more than 15m votes and nearly 40% of the vote. His nearest rivals have conceded defeat. Duterte came to the presidential race late, prompted by a Senatorial Electoral Tribunal decision to allow Senator Grace Poe to run for the presidency. Her presidential...

    That’s 7.2 million more votes than Barack Obama carried in 2008, and almost 13 million more than Mitt Romney carried in 2012. That’s YUGE ! That’s the Monster Vote. That’s also a landslide victory for Donald Trump. Another way of looking at it – that Monster Vote increase is simply adding 10% of the approximately 120 million voters who never vote in elections. And those new voters are exactly what you see showing up at Donald Trump primary campaign rallies.

    A landslide last fall caused a giant wave not seen in Alaska since a storied 1958 event in Lituya Bay. After a period of heavy rains, a mountainside near Tyndall Glacier collapsed into a fiord of Icy Bay on Oct. 17, 2015. The displaced water generated a wave that sheared alders more than 500 feet up on a hillside across from the slide at the Southeast Alaska location. To put that in perspective, the 2011 tsunami in Japan reached about 130 feet above sea level. The Icy Bay wave may be the largest since a magnitude-8 earthquake shook much of...

    I continue to be amazed by those pundits who suggest Donald Trump can’t beat Hillary Clinton. There are three principal reasons for such faulty conclusions: •These folks are working under the strictures of an old paradigm. That is the one that says Democrats start out with a base of unlosable states and electoral votes and need only to win two or more swing states. •Polls taken today, before the Trump-Hillary campaign even begins. •Trump’s high negatives. Let’s look at one big reason none of these factors will come into play after the conventions.

The model does not assume who would be the party nominees or the conditions of the country at the time. “You think ‘This is crazy.

The short description that goes with the film is as follows: Ropoto was once a thriving village and home to 300 families, but a landslide in 2012 turned the village into a ghost town. Today, forgotten by people and authorities, Ropoto’s terrain is still...

It took place primarily Wednesday and Thursday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent. Nearly...

    It's a terrifying vision: A violent eruption of Italy's Mount Etna triggers a massive collapse of one flank of the volcano, sending 35 cubic kilometers of debris--the equivalent of 10,000 Cheops pyramids--hurtling at 400 kilometers an hour into the Ionian Sea. The Big Splash unleashes a 50-meter-tall wall of water that, within a few hours, wipes out coastal settlements across the Mediterranean. This catastrophe happened 8000 years ago--and a Mediterranean monster of similar magnitude could happen again. That's the scenario invoked in an analysis in last week's Geophysical Research Letters.

    Polls which ask voters for their thoughts on how the last election should have shaped up a year or two years after the fact are pretty much meaningless. The latest CNN/ORC survey which asks voters that question is no exception to that rule. Nevertheless, with just 100 days remaining before the midterm elections, this question is an instructive measurement of voter satisfaction with the president. If voters had it to do all over again, 53 percent would support Mitt Romney over the 44 percent who would continue to back Barack Obama. The president’s remaining coalition is what you would...

    Public Opinion Strategies, a Washington political shop, produced a chart last week that got much of the political press buzzing. The chart compared polling questions during incumbent friendly elections and, as they put it, "shellackings." Their data suggests 2014 will be a shellacking for the Democrats. But, contrary to what many say, it will not be a landslide at the federal level. In October 1994, when the Republicans rode a wave of anti-Democrat sentiment to Washington, 30 percent more Americans thought the nation was on the wrong track than the right track. In 2006, when the Democrats came back, 27...

Over the past two weeks, a piece of East Gros Ventre Butte has slowly collapsed toward the west side of Jackson — shearing one hillside home in half, threatening to devour several others and looming ever more ominously over a cluster of businesses below. :snip: By Saturday morning, the shifting earth had caused bulges in a road and a parking lot at the foot...

    (CNN) -- A devastating landslide in Washington state killed three people Saturday and sent rescuers desperately digging for people crying for help underneath debris, authorities in Washington state said. The landslide cut off a small town and a river and prompted an evacuation notice for fear of a potentially "catastrophic flood event," authorities said. The Snohomish County Sheriff's Office said, in addition to those dead, seven adults and a 6-month-old boy were rescued and sent to local hospitals. Harborview Medical Center in Seattle reported that five patients had been airlifted there and were in its care. Three of those --...

    I believe this near-catastrophe happened in Taiwan. Watch as a dashcam captures the action Now go back and pay special attention to the mountain peak at the top-center of the screen at about 2 seconds in. That’s some Wile E. Coyote stuff right there.

    A landslide on Whidbey Island in Washington state pushed one home 200 feet out into the water and forced the evacuation of about 20 people, officials said. Early Wednesday morning a 1,000-foot-wide section of a cliff on the island fell away, blocking the beach-side road below, The Seattle Times reported. Police evacuated about a dozen people from homes below the cliff by boat because of the road blockage, KOMO-TV, Seattle, reported.

    In their forward compartment on their “Believe in America” campaign plane tonight before landing in Columbus for the just concluded rally, an ebullient Ann Romney told your reporter “We’re going to win!” A cadre of Romney senior staffers busily worked their email on laptops, tablets and hand held devices. Mr Romney seated in a chair with the words “The Gov” embroidered on the headrest and an I-Pad in his lap beamed at his wife’s confidence and echoed her sentiments immediately saying decisively “It’s over!” referring to both his quest for victory in Ohio and the nation.

    Resurgent Republican ^ | 11/1/2012 | Polling Analysis
    President Obama is collapsing among Independent voters, but this is not an "October Surprise." The rebellion of the center is a fundamental trend of President Obama's four years in office. In our inaugural survey in April 2009, 100 days into President Obama’s time in office, Resurgent Republic noted: "[Voters] are deeply skeptical about the amount of money Mr. Obama proposes for the government to spend, tax, and borrow for bailouts and other spending programs that produce few private sector jobs. Independents, who hold the balance of power in this electorate, are closer to Republicans than to Democrats on these fiscal...
  • Our pick: Mitt Romney [Wisconsin State Journal]

    11/04/2012 10:57:40 AM PST · by Justaham · 18 replies
    Not enough hope and too little change. That is President Barack Obama's record on the economy, debt and Washington gridlock after four years in the White House. The State Journal editorial board endorses Mitt Romney in Tuesday's presidential election. Romney showed as the Republican governor of Democratic-leaning Massachusetts that he can find agreement across the partisan divide. And his vice presidential pick — Wisconsin's U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Janesville — suggests Romney is serious about tackling America's fiscal mess. Romney has an impressive record of success in the private and public sectors. He's a numbers guy who focuses more on...

    Imaginary White House ^ | November 6, 2012 | Barck Obama
    President Barack Obama's Concession Speech. White House. November, 6, 2012. My fellow Americans. Change is part of life. Four years ago I said that “we are the change we are waiting for.” Tonight the American people have decided that they want more change and we respect their choice. I can’t say that news of this change doesn’t hurt, but we can look with satisfaction on some of our promising proposals that were perhaps so bold that the nation wasn’t ready for them quite yet. I want to thank all of my supporters for the tireless efforts that they have devoted...
