Don’t trust her, cant stand him

So in a couple of weeks America will be voting for the person they want as President and at the same time they will also probably be voting for a person they dislike immensely. That’s what it has come down to. The ultimate lesser of two evils which has been bandied about for decades but it is finally true.

The groundswell against the Trumpster has been picking up steam of late. When you see Hollywood produce slick online “ads” and celebrities come out of the woodworks you know the “liberal elite” has coalesced their forces.

On the other hand the conservatives have rolled out the Wiki Leaks offensive. Leaked documents and e mails tarnishing the Clinton campaign as part of their October surprise. Rumors have it that Julian Assange has a Russian connection that leads right to Putin’s office. Based on the attack on the Clinton campaign, Julian Assange wants Trump to win the election or despises Hillary very much or both.

Trump not only has shot himself in the foot but is in the process of loading the gun ( his mouth) and getting ready to shoot his other foot with the pussyfooting (sorry couldn’t resist) around  the denial of the sexual harassment stories that are coming out, at last count there were eleven accusers as of 10/23. This will turn into a imbroglio of Cosby-like proportions.   Of course he cannot admit to it and he shouldn’t say he will sue them after the election ( which he has said he would) but he should talk policy and what his plans are and say he will handle the allegations after the election, but he can not do any of the above because he has painted himself into a corner.

Trump epitomizes what America is by working to build an empire and bullying his way around the world, being and thinking “we’re number one” being brash, opportunistic and at the same time being envied for being successful.

Hillary has a terrific resume’ great experience as a lawyer, a Senator, a Secretary of State, the First Lady and a governors wife. Unfortunately there is very little to like about her.Her pores ooze blind ambition and her years of dodging questions, subpoenas and inquiries almost makes her as bulletproof as John Gotti once was.

I predict the vote wont even be close, she will win and God help us either way.

Trump that vote

Well kids its down to the last thirty days before the most seminal election of your lifetime. Why YOUR lifetime? because everything in your life, your friends, your relatives and the world will be affected by who is sleeping in the White House.

Do not think that by voting for Johnson or Stein is going to be a vote for Bernie or a vote against the system of oligarch’s that are firmly entrenched in the corridors of power.

Hillary and Trump are not liked, in fact this is the perfect storm of people voting for a candidate simply because they cannot stand the other candidate.

Hillary has the blood-lust drive of ambition not seen in too many politicians let a lone a female one. She is seen as an enabler of her husbands peccadilloes, an attacker of his accusers, protecting him like a mother cub. There is very little to like about her. All you can say nice about her is that she appears to be a good mother, very loyal wife and grandmother. Oh and a very hard worker and relentless.

When I heard Trump was running I was interested. He appeared to be a successful businessman, a no nonsense speaker. Not able to be bought out by special interests, not an insider or a typical politician.

Unfortunately he opened his mouth and has insulted everyone but white, frustrated, poorly educated racist xenophobes. He is also a businessman who while using the system to file bankruptcies burns bridges with suppliers and contractors at an alarming rate.  Not even getting into how he treats and thinks of women.

If those of you outside of the United States think this election will not affect you, think again, he will alienate the rest of the world, she might not be seen as strong enough which might cause her to do something drastic to prove she has the “stones” to be the leader of the free world. So you cannot vote here if you are from abroad but talk to your friends and family that you have here, get a feel for what they are thinking. I hear that except for the winters,Canada is a pretty neat place and they have a progressive Prime Minister.

Trump versus ISIS

So the Donald is like the neighborhood bully who is all full of talk but very little substance.

He says he will take care of the problem without explanation of how he will. Keep in mind the current President has a plan in place right NOW that is bombing Isis strongholds on a daily basis with the help of our allies.

So what Donald? what will you do differently? Fire them? Not pay them? Stiff them like he has small companies he’s hired  and offer them thirty cents on the dollar for their services? Berate them? Bullshit them? Distract them? Send his army of lawyers and accountants after them? Sue them?

Send the armed services at them? Hopefully there will be enough people to do that unless everyone asks for deferments like the five Donald had during Vietnam.

Does this megalomaniac think he is going to scare these lunatics? These people are ruthless and how can you defend against people that are willing to strap a bomb  on their ass and take the ultimate one for the team?

Sure we had a T.V. star as a president before but Saint Reagan was guvnor of California first and he had a team of professionals around him with Nancy and her astrologer as backup. Who does Donald have? Omarosa and his kids?  Gary Busey? Scott Baio? underwear model Antonio Sabate Jr?  Ann B. Davis? Uncle Charley? Kato Kaelin? Urkel? Sheldon Cooper?

Is the Donald even going to have a cabinet? He said at the RNC that he had all the answers and the he and he only could solve the problems we had. Well shit those cabinet meetings will be very short and sweet.

If he wins will there be a Playboy magazine with spread of the first lady?  Could the first lady be the first to be a Playmate of the Month candidate?

Are Frank and Claire Underwood of House of Cards coming to life in the Trump’s or are they the Clinton’s? This will be a seminal election, the way America rolls for the next few decades will be decided here.

Will the GOP rue the day they blocked Obama’s Scotus nomination of Merrick Garland as a moderate? The GOP is so arrogant they will win the Presidency that they have held this off until after the election.  If and when Hillary wins she will nominate someone further to the left than Garland. What will the grey old party do then? They are so out of touch with the real world that they are caught in a 1950’s time warp.

Clinton versus Trump

Look kids now that its time for the major leaguers since the posers (Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, Martin O’Malley, John Kasich) the wannabees ( Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina) the clueless (Ben Carson, Jeb Bush) and the mensch (Bernie Sanders) are done.It’s time to clear the ring and let the heavyweights  thru the ropes.

Sure the Dragon Lady and the Ego have the most negative approval ratings of any two candidates to ever run for president but what can you do with two who both feel ordained to run and win? One of them is going to be in for a HUGE disappointment, HUGE let me tell you.

If Hillary loses I will feel sorry for Bill. If the Donald loses I feel sorry for all the comedians who are currently planning a career around his presidency. However I do not think Hillary will lose, here’s why: In spite of the polarizing figure that is Hillary she stood by Bill thru Monica-gate, got thru the GOP circus known as Benghazi hearings, made it thru the FBI e mail investigations and took every blow from Bernie and survived.

It’s more than the Donald only has the uneducated white trash vote, the misogynist ,the xenophobic vote and  the racist vote. He does not have the black vote, the women’s vote or  the Hispanic vote. The bible thumpers? hmmmmm……on one hand he’s been married three times and divorced twice but the thumpers have to vote GOP or they will burn in hell if they don’t.

So if you have heard of the lesser of two evils vote, this is it. Cant vote Libertarian, they are so far off the grid they make Star Trek convention fans look like average white folk. The Green Party while espousing a great cause have the “Q” rating of well, the Libertarians or for those of you who don’t get it the pizzazz and excitement of a party at Mitt Romney’s hacienda.

So don’t vote? No, you are playing right into their hands, so vote even if your candidate is out of it (Bernie’s fans) vote, its a privilege ask the people that live in Communist countries or live in a country ruled by a dictator.

Here’s the crazy part, they don’t even have their vice president candidates picked yet, more fun to follow……….

GOP Latinos? surely you jest

An article came out recently in the Tribune family of newspapers lamenting the fact that the GOP is fearful that the Donald’s divisive campaign will drive Latino voters away from the GOP for decades to come.

Here is the irony: the GOP has been driving away Latino voters way before the Donald came along. They are clueless that their non inclusive rhetoric cutting food stamps, welfare, public housing, trying to gut Obamacare, gutting social services and looking out for the rich has ALREADY turned off a generation of Latinos. Let alone their treatment of veterans.

I remember as a child the household would never ever vote Democratic but boy have times have changed. No one group is more religious than the Latins but they do not try to run their religious beliefs down people’s throats.

Remember the GOP’s embrace of Proposition 187 in California back in 90’s ? It helped turned that state around to Democratic presidential votes ever since.

And of course the Trumpster has not helped calling Mexicans rapists and drug dealers and saying he will build a wall.

The party allowed Mitt Romney who ironically is of Mexican heritage to spew forth in 2012 when he was running for President  he suggested “self deportation” for illegal immigration back then and they are worried NOW that they might be losing the Latino vote?

Newsflash: you lily white crackers looking out for only big business, Billionaires, Wall Street and the 1% have only yourselves to blame for losing the Latino vote, best of luck getting them back in the next twenty or thirty years.

Bernie media bias

In yesterday’s Indiana primary all the cable channels could talk about was Trump,Trump,Trump. hardly a mention of Bernie’s upset of Hillary.

In fact the day before the Indiana primary in a Associated Press article by Thomas Beaumont and Steve Peoples here is what they wrote about Bernie: New signs emerged that front-runner Hillary Clinton’s rival is fading as well. They don’t mention said signs. Imagine that! How did they get these signs? Tea leaves? Coconut shells? Signals from outer space? The lady psychic from New Jersey?

Furthermore the two Woodward and Bernstein wannabees wrote: His total of $25.8 million raised last month is a marked decline from the $46 million collected in March. Collecting $25.8 in one month is not chopped liver my friends considering they are small donations from regular folks, not Super PACS or shady PACS.

They also wrote: Polls suggest a tight race. Bernie not only upset Brunhilda but not even close, with at least a 6% margin. I hope CNN does not come out with a headline saying: “BERNIE SURVIVES DEVASTATING WIN IN INDIANA”

It’s evident that Bernie is not a sexy or polarizing candidate so the cable channels and news outlets deep in their hearts do not want him to beat Hillary. Trump gets people worked up with his bombastic diatribes and Hillary is polarizing so they have a better “Q” rating than plain soft spoken Bernie.

The western states are coming soon, I think Bernie will do better than the so called “experts” call it.

The headline in the Palm Beach Post this morning was “Trump ousts Cruz” No headline about Bernie’s upset.Imagine that!

Super Tuesday 4/26 or fear and loathing in the Northeast

So the Donald takes all five states even after the misguided collaboration between John “I need a personality transfusion” Kasich and Ted ” why doesn’t anyone like me” Cruz that they tried this week.

It was a backdoor deal to split delegates in upcoming states between them. It did smell of desperation and panic. The problem is in spite of winning some states Cruz couldn’t get elected in a whorehouse if he was holding fistfuls of Benjamins. He is smarmy, self aggrandizing, obnoxious and self serving. And those are his good qualities.

Kasich speaks well, has tried to stay above the muck but has the appeal of wet paint. Now I am not a Donald fan. At first I liked a businessman running for the highest office in the land  but he lends or licenses his name to deals like Trump U, Trump steaks, Trump vodka without doing due diligence on the people running these companies. I am surprised there’s not Trump Condoms with tag lines of They’re HUGE, You’ve never felt more fantastic, They are Incredible!

And I know he used the “system” in place for bankruptcies but how successful are you if you have filed at least four times for that? Why is Trump U being sued? Come on Donald, if it has your name on it make sure it is legit and the “best” as you always boast you blowhard.

Cruz is so transparent that he came dead last today in the Northeast. Even Kasich got more votes than he did. Looks like he will not get any delegates in the Northeast. Even the touted evangelical/conservative voters voted overwhelmingly for  Trump. I hope Ted gets the message, he is like the unpopular kid in High School who tried and tried to get into the cool/popular crowd and was rebuffed over and over but he would not go away.

This is at the same time the most interesting political race in a long time as well as being the most stomach wrenching. Looking forward to the GOP convention, it will have more twists, turns and skullduggery than a John Le Carre’ novel.

As far as the Dems go, Hillary’s machine is in full mode but Bernie wont go away like a bad rash. Hillary is full of platitudes and sob stories. Bernie offers solutions. Solutions that cant be paid for but solutions. Hillary is for fracking and fossil fuels and Bernie is not. Hillary will “fight for you” but offers no solutions

Looking forward to the conventions and November, no matter who wins it will be a seminal moment in American politics. Too bad HST isn’t around to report on it.
