Where I think the Trump campaign needs to focus (16 Days out).

What is done is done and concentrating on the things that cannot be influenced or the battles that can’t be won is useless. I think it is all about the one and two percenters now that can tip the balance for every viable state to Trump (and yes to clear the extra hurdle of very obvious election fraud by the Democrats).

Catholicism – I cannot believe that Catholics are prepared to suck up Hillary’s campaign’s efforts and attitude towards them. Anyone who is Catholic ought to be a little outraged over the comments. The comments are not only derogatory and ill-thought out. Not only did they thumb their noses up at the religion but they also suggested changing Catholicism within and in their Culturally Marxist image of what it could be. I cannot tell you how much of an attack on religion and religious freedoms this is.

The tenets of Catholic faith are wrapped within within Ancient traditional views and these do not gel with the “Progressive Liberal” too well and so the “obvious” answer is to destroy the faith and make it something it is not and based not on the religious principles but on the secular “Progressive” Principles.

This is SUCH an opportunity. People DON’T know. Where are the largest Demographics of Catholics? In the tiny states of Rhode Island, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York. These are ALL Deep Blue States. But even Vermont which may seem an unlikely connection give only 33% are religious and only 20% of the state are Catholic, there is a real possibility. A lot of people are “writing in” Bernie Sanders on the ballot. this is completely legal and does not delegitimise the vote. However essentially it means you effectively have Trump who would likely be out of contention in this state suddenly in contention as there are effectively a splitting of the Democratic base of Vermont between Bernie and Hillary. From there he just needs to push the Catholic contingent of both of these two bases and see what happens. It may be a lot closer than what may have ordinarily been assumed.

More than this states like Arizona and New Mexico have large Latino populations. Of these populations, what percentage are Democrats? Of these populations, what percentage are strong Catholics? I think given this and especially given the comments about “Needy Latinos”, a Pro-Trump Latino contingent would likely be able to push this message well in the minds of the Democrats supporters and give pause to who and what they are blindly supporting.

Uranium One – Hillary Clinton the one who spits poison at Vladimir Putin every chance she gets and blames Wikileaks on Russia and says Trump is close to Putin. Yet SHE signed off on a deal to sell contracts for 20% of all of USA’s rich Uranium deposits to Uranium One a Russia controlled company Uranium one. One that her right hand man John Podesta holds (or held – reports are that he has given them to his daughter). It was textbook pay to play. It is chronicled in Clinton Cash.

Go where there IS Russia connections and solid ones at that NOT allegations.

Child Care – These reforms are tangible and concrete and cannot help but appeal to ANY working parents. Ivanka lays it all out beautifully. This affects so many Americans and is such a change for what is currently available.

Project Veritas – The Democrats cannot divorce themselves from this. It not only nullifies the faux outrage on why Donald Trump would question the election results BUT also it shows in absolute terms that these people are colluding and paid for to disrupt and incite violence on behest of the Democrat Party. People were hurt and in my mind, each of these people now have a claim against the DNC if not Hillary. It also juxtapositions against Trump as the Law and Order candidate with Hillary as the Violence inciting candidate.

Taxes – People HAVE to be made aware that the talking point of Hillary’s that Trump will JUST reduce the taxes of the businesses CANNOT go unaddressed. Let people know that their own taxes are going down and that the regulations that inhibit companies being able to expand their businesses. The effect that will have on opportunity. Hillary is going to tax the rich more. So what?

Healthcare – Obamacare is practically a meme. Chelsea Clinton said on Obamacare (Affordable HealthCare “We know we do need to work on the affordable part of the Affordable Care Act.” Can’t write comedy like that. I think if he names states and increases and asks who did not expect this would happen.

Special Interests – Hillary is colluding with press, GOP, DNC, Agitators, Wall Street, Banks, Foreign Interests and they all expect their pound of flesh. Trump has virtual no big donors or special interest groups in comparison. No one owns him. He is able to be a lot less partisan when he tries to #Draintheswamp.

I think these stupid sexual assault “revelations”/”allegations” are complete bullshit and a distraction and smear. Its just too coincidental.

  • 3 weeks before a Presidential election
  • 1 week after he roasted Hillary Clinton’s husband for being an actual sexual predator
  • 2 weeks after the Trump Tapes came out
  • 5 months after The Clinton campaign had discussed making the “Donald the Groper narrative” that was exposed in the Wikileaks dump.

I man there are also inconsistencies, eye witnesses and even someone being found to do this just before releasing a porn movie.

Hillary does not take the High road with anything and she is not only setting the standard for future Male female candidate contender battles. The female candidate simply brings in these lying attention seeking women to accuse the male candidate of sexual abuse. There is the high road for you and the precedent she set and she set it 5 months ago in secret.

But Trump cannot focus on that or get drawn into making that a focus.

I think that the issues that sell are the ones above and they are the ones he should focus on. Any of the other issues are pretty much run out and I do not think we should try to change direction or re-clarify positions or introduce new issues.

I strongly believe he should mobilise his surrogates. The Military leaders and Mike Flynn ought to visit and do rallies for vets in Florida and Virginia for example. There is a lot of ground that can be made and efforts can be multiplied by getting everyone involved.

Anyhow that is my thoughts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Second Debate: However badly you think you think Hillary did, she did worse.

I just watched the Second Presidential Debate. If I was nervous about the first one  I was doubly so with the second. I knew Hillary was not going to collapse or cough or whatever. Worse than this, a couple of days before the debate, The Trump Tapes had been dropped on Trump and were seen as perhaps campaign ruining by some.

I thought Trump may have been on the ropes a little. I know he is a smart guy and plays to win. I know he is not sensitive and soft, but in addition to this I knew he had two moderators and they were both Liberals. I suspected he was being set up to be bailed out of the campaign.

I had two things that gave me a little solace. Firstly, Trump is unpredictable and secondly, he has the bar set so low for him in terms of expectation, that he may survive this debate even if it goes rather badly.

Now I have watched the debate in its entirety and all I can say is “Wow! Holy shit!”. Hillary has done so very badly here. Terribly. I will need to really spell out how bad this was in my view because it is not perhaps as some have spelled it out of for reasons they may say. Its actually worse and for better reasons.

Last debate Hillary won. She did better. Not by much, but better. Trump returned the favour. I would have rated out of 10 for the last debate, Hillary a 7.5 and Trump a 6. You will note not a lot between them. This debate I would rate Hillary a 6-6.5 and Trump a 7.5-8.

Hillary suffers from a weight of media and Liberal surrogate driven high expectations. She is SUPPOSED to be this experienced, super knowledgeable, efficient , connected, policy wonk. Trump is supposed to be an inefficient, uncontrolled, ineffective, ignorant, useless, stupid, hopeless, rambling idiot. His expectations are terrible.

As I said in the previous post she is almost obligated to destroy Trump in the debates because she is this political superwoman and he is a joke candidate in contrast and comparison, apparently. So he doing not markedly worse than her in the first debate actually probably went against her. This time he actually beat her. THAT REALLY goes against her. IF he is this hopeless candidate and she is the pinnacle of political brilliance, how the Hell does that happen?

But it is worse than that Trump is a person that is not running on political experience or political knowledge or his political achievements. He is running on his energy, personality, anti-establishment ideas, and his fresh ideas. This debate forum is entirely suited to Clinton. He also wings it far more than Hillary and THAT is a weakness. If she gets such low crowds, hates rallies and interviews, has no personality and such, then THIS is where she HAS to demolish him. Three debates. First one she barely won, second one, she lost, and now she only really has one more opportunity.

But it gets worse than that. The Moderators were interjecting, favouring Hillary, loading questions against Trump, and even debating Trump. Still he won.

But it gets worse still. Two days ago the Trump Tapes were dropped and caused an uproar. Trump publicly apologised and People were up in arms. It was going to come up and it was going to be ugly. Seemingly all Hillary had to do was to sink the boot. Trump was expected to be knocked down by this and leave the debate with his campaign in tatters. What did he do? He got the women who have been on the other end of Hillary’s malice to speak out about this and to be in the front row of the Presidential debate. then when it got onto that topic (and not satisfied with Trump’s inability to  grovel) and ask it three times, Trump was able to answer it effectively and decisively and take that off the table. Hillary could not do much with it and when she did he destroyed her with talking about Bill (with him in the audience no less).

I get the feeling that she is simply out of strategy or answers. She is losing ground and her campaign’s attempts to hurt him are failing. I expect there will be bigger things to come out in this last 4 weeks and they will be more terrible BUT after this sensational failure, won’t it be seen as what it is? Desperate ploys made by desperate people?

This still could go any way. But Hillary has one more opportunity to take out Trump. If Trump can gain in the Battleground states and keep those gains, he will win and he is slowly doing that. A slight shift to him will have him turn Florida and Pennsylvania from tied to win. There is precious little between North Carolina, Virginia, Nevada, Colorado, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Higher rates of Republican and Independent turnouts for Trump and/or a few percent shift, will change the whole nature of this election.

Watch how desperate Hillary’s campaign will be from here on out and how many different tactics they will use. Strap in folks. It is going to be a bumpy ride.

 

 

YES, Trump said some really crappy things about women, and…..

….that means what exactly? This is the bit I am struggling with. He is not a nice guy? He is suddenly unable to lead America because he said some shitty things ten years ago? That his policies are somehow less important or considered or relevant than they were a few days ago before we knew?

What exactly?

Is what he said excusable? Does it need to be? Really? Why? And what does that mean anyhow? I mean this people saying “Oh your apology looks forced”, Who fucking cares? Its from people that would under no circumstances have accepted it and probably would not have voted for him regardless, but want to marinate in his “comeuppance”. Fuck them, there is nothing he would have been able to do to “make things right” with them, so who cares about their opinion?

So Hillary and her surrogates think that this nullifies his attacks over her husbands, treatment of women. What about Hillary herself? He certainly was taped having a pretty lewd locker room type spew against women, but what about HER?

I do not even have to look at Bill and HIS behaviour but LOOK at Hillary. Not that Hillary has said anything that Donald has said (which is immature, chest thumping, ego blasting, crass, lewd locker room speak) BUT I would say this is equally on the same level……on second thoughts probably a fair bit worse.

Did you get an apology from Hillary? Will anyone expect it? Will she be pilloried for it?

The thing that pisses me off with this whole thing is that Hillary could rock up to the debate with a baby on her lap and proceed to eat it live on air and she would get a pass on it. Trump will cop a lot of shit over this and it may stymie his rise.

I was never under any allusion about Trump. The man IS flawed. “How flawed?” Is the question. Not nearly as much as Hillary. His getting another Conservative judge will prevent a lot of eroding of the US legislation and will prevent redefining traditionally held interpretations of the constitution. His putting America first will allow America to thrive in a world economy. His willingness to break up the establishment will allow for a lot of the trough swilling corruption to be exposed and cauterised. He is taking out Common Core. He has that effect of calling out bullshit (much like the boy from the Emperor’s new clothes story). It is a necessary when political correctness and moral pandering to “Progressives” and Liberal media has a chilling effect on people. He calls it out right or wrong. He is coming at many of his policies with a fresh set of eyes and that is also helpful.

I think he will get decent and smart people around him to feed him good knowledge and execute the aspects of government that he needs to run America. I do not think he will be terribly hands on but I think that he will be a decent statesman as his talks with the Egyptian leaders and the Mexican President.

I think as flawed as he is, he is not without any merit and I think the same cannot be said for Hillary. In the debate when he said “She has experience and its bad experience. 30 years and what have you done?” Its all true. She is the embodiment of political corruption and status quo. The very worst of politics is what she offers. It needs to be done away with.

I am so annoyed that this COULD actually hurt him and be seen as mattering to his Presidency when it doesn’t in the slightest.
