Obama on Hillary: Now and in 2008

In a joint campaign stop, President Obama said this about Hillary Clinton:
"And that’s why I can say with confidence there has never been a man or a woman—not me, not Bill, nobody—more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America.”
 Apparently, the President forgot this little video from his 2008 campaign against Hillary:

Is Trump Hoping for a "Dewey Wins" Moment?

In 1948, Thomas E. Dewey was running against the incumbent President Harry S. Truman.  All the polls had Dewey in the lead and there was no doubt he wouldn't win.  The Chicago Daily Tribune was facing a printer's strike and was so sure of a Dewey win that they pre-published this now-famous headline:

That's Truman, the then-winner, holding up what is the biggest mistake in newspaper history.

When I listen to Trump say he's going to win and that the polls have it wrong, I think about that "Tribune" headline.  Of course, that was most likely a one-off situation.  There are just too many polls with Trump losing by double digits or by at least 6 percentage points.  It really doesn't matter if Truman and Trump have, coincidentally, the same first four letters in their names.  Which is weird in itself.

Climate Change Alarmists Fret Over the Lack of Media Coverage

In a recent article for Investor's Business Daily, Kerry Jackson speculated that climate alarmists were upset that hurricane Matthew didn't do more damage, and as a result, wasn't able to advance their cause.  In a later article, she also told us that these same people want to change the way hurricanes are measured.   Not just by wind, but by rainfall too.  This was so they could seem more threatening and more frequent.  All of which could signal even more "climate change".

Then, Brad Plummer at was dismayed that in the 4 debates -- three presidential and one vice presidential -- the subject wasn't even mentioned.  Additionally, Michael Mann of "hockey stick" temperature projections speculated that the main stream media has been "compromised" and are intentionally ignoring climate change.  Boo hoo!

The simple fact, is that people don't care about it.  It's not an important issue.  Generally, jobs and the economy are the number one concerns. When you look at polling for the top issues on people's minds, climate change hardly ever comes up, and when it does, the percentage of people worried about it are in the single digits.

In my opinion, the main reason that people are turned off by the topic, is that "alarmists" literally blame everything on climate change.  Even wars, and every hurricane and tornado as if they didn't exist before, along with other endless declarations.  People like me, just find this too unbelievable.  Especially, when you consider that many declarations and predictions contradict each other.   Hell, the Green Party candidate, Jill Stein, is running around predicting a 9 foot sea rise by 2050, when in fact, seas are only rising about 14 inches a century. Then, we were told by NASA earlier this year, that the rise in sea levels has slowed because the rains are heavier over land.  Tell that to California and the rest of the Southwest who are in a multi-year drought.

It's not the media that is losing interest.  It's the people who are and the media just plays to the interests of the public.

London News Flash: The Queen is Dead..Lower the Union Jack!

Flag protocol in Britain requires that the "Union Jack" be flown at half staff from the day a sovereign's
death is announced, until the day of the funeral.  So, why hasn't the flag been lowered?  Well, it isn't "the" queen who has died, but instead, the queen of leaf cutter ants at the London Natural History Museum.

Apparently, her colony is dying along with her.  All that remains is litter, dead bodies, and this sign:

This, as being reported by the Guardian news.  It seems this ant colony was one of the main attractions at that museum.  Hell! If I knew that, I could have sold tickets to my backyard.  The little buggers are all over the place! Usually, twice a year, they manage to come inside, and I use bait that is actually intended to kill the queen.   I guess things are a little different in Britain.

Hillary Clinton Has the Peter Principal Hanging Over Her Head

In 1969, a man by the name of Laurence J. Peter shocked the business world with his book titled "Peter Principle".  Essentially, he claimed that managers stop being promoted when they reach a level of incompetence.  Incompetence that is a result of promoting people on the basis of what they have done in their current job and not how well they are equipped to handle the job they're being promoted into.

On that assumption, Hillary Clinton reached her level of incompetence when she became Secretary of State.   In an interview with ABC News' Diane Sawyer in 2014, she could not name one accomplishment during her stint as Secretary of State.  This, after she flubbed the same question in a New York Times interview two months earlier. Apparently, two months wasn't enough time to prepare her for a similar question.

More importantly, during that time, she demonstrated pure incompetence on many key issues:
  • The Russian Reset.  Besides embarrassing herself and our country by getting the spelling wrong for the Russian word for "reset" on a symbolic gift to the Russian Foreign Minister, the relations have "reset" us back to looking more like the days of the "Cold War" and not something better than when Bush was in office.
  • Following the 7.0 earthquake in Haiti, she authorized millions to be spent to create 65,000 jobs by building a gleaming industrial park in a country that had more than a million unemployed. To date, only 11,000 workers have been employed with no more growth in sight.
  • 9/11 Benghazi Attacks. We all know she lied about the reason for the attacks.  However, the fact that we were even in Benghazi on 9/11 is due to incompetence.  Long before the attack, multiple warning signs clearly showed that things were quickly degrading in Libya.  She and her appointees disregarded Ambassador Stevens' communications of security concerns.  Additionally, she ignored the fact that both the International Red Cross and the Brits left the country because of increasing concerns over the security of their people. Yet, we stayed and 4 Americans died.
  • Then, there was the complete incompetence of Hillary's private email server which put this country's top secrets at risk.
However, in my opinion, the biggest demonstration of incompetence was her declared friendship with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.  In a March 2009 interview with an Arab television network Al Arabiya in Sharm el-Sheik, Egypt, after meeting with Mubarak, Seretary Clinton said this, when asked about Egypt being on her country's human rights abuse list:
We look forward to President Mubarak coming as soon as his schedule would permit. I had a wonderful time with him this morning. I really consider President and Mrs. Mubarak to be friends of my family. So I hope to see him often here in Egypt and in the United States.
Friends of her family?  In 2011, Mubarak was forced to step down over massive protests in the streets of Egypt.  In that same year, he was sentenced to life imprisonment for his abuse of power and corruption while President.  Maybe that's why Hillary and Mubarak were such good friends?

Now, she wants to demonstrate her further incompetence and completely validate the concept of the "Peter Principle" by becoming President of the United States.

Hillary Clinton's Climate Change B.S. on Hurricane Matthew

Campaigning with Al Gore in Florida, Hillary Clinton said this about hurricane Matthew:
"Hurricane Matthew was likely more destructive because of climate change. Right now the ocean is at or near record high temperatures, and that contributed to the torrential rainfall and the flash flooding that we saw in the Carolinas."
Hillary the lawyer, and I guess now, a climatologist, is simply wrong.  As Anthony Watts is reporting on his website "Watts Up With That", 30 peer reviewed scientific studies have have found no correlation to the frequency and intensity of hurricanes and global warming (see link below for the full list). Hillary's attempt to link Matthew to climate change is just a bunch of political B.S.


Al Gore and Hillary Clinton just strongly linked Hurricane Matthew to climate change:

30 peer reviewed studies show no connection between climate change and hurricanes:

.Pence Commits Political Suicide By Not Leaving The Ticket

I  believe that Trump will not recover from his "pu**y" assault video   I think he will lose and lose big in November.  Of course, he has a business that he can go back to.

But, Mike Pence is still in politics, and politics can be unforgiving; especially if Pence has any thoughts of running for president in 2020.  By not leaving the Trump ticket, he will be seen as condoning that behavior, and no amount of "forgiveness" is going to help his political career going forward.  Forevermore, he's now tainted by Donald Trump.  Just as Billy Bush's career will never be the same.


Pence emerges in NC with praise, ‘forgiveness’ for Trump:
