    The Iowa caucuses are upon us. Every sentient human being who has lived through The Trump Revolution thinks Donald J. Trump, the enfant terrible of establishment politics, will likely win the Republican caucuses, come February 1. As of January 27, an Iowa Monmouth University Poll places Trump at 30 percent to Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s...

    You are wrong about the use of the word enormous, enormity and so forth. Enormous hair. Enormous waves in the ocean, etc. The enormity of his billion dollar donation stunned the world. It can be used to describe GOOD things OR BAD things.

    Megyn DID pick on Trump in August with ridiculous questions about words he might use against women, considering he uses them against men too. SO WHAT? Hillary did DEEDS against women that her husband raped. She takes every chance she gets to try to much up what Trump says, while, eg, O'Reilly ASKS Trump exactly what he meant. EG, of course he did NOT refer to all Mexicans as criminals. Just those that ARE coming over the border illegally - and then, as if on cue, Kate got murdered by an illegal Mexican He SAID ban all Muslims UNLESS, UNTIL we can figure out exactly who they are. All of this is logical. We either do it or we are NOT a country and gov is supposed to keep the citizens safe by law. NOT endanger us. Megyn has done this repeatedly, even getting shrill about it, with that STUPID grin on her face.

    Trump raised over 6 million in 2 hours of that wonderful event he held for the veterans. Even at the last minute Fox asked Trump to do the debate, but he said it was too late, he was committed to the veterans event.

    As far as evangies go, even some of their own top people figured out that they are NOT voting for a pastor, but for a president and they have to take this seriously. At least Trump doesn't hate them, one said. He's a GOOD businessman and it's what the country needs - and he can NOT be bought off. Yes, he had good relations with the Clintons and with many other republicans too, not just democrats. He was a businessman. As such, he KNOWS how to get things done and done right.

    These evangies need to realize thatwe do not live under ISIS or in Iran and STOP pushing their damned religion on people who are NOT socially in agreement with their biblical views at all. Either that, or LOSE LOSE LOSE. Trump is NOT Romney. He can get democrats on his side, as Guilliani pointed out when he endorsed Trump. Falwell also endorsed Trump because, as he said, we are NOT voting for a pastor. At least they got some sense thinking that way.

    Enormity – no, I’m agreeing with you! :)

    Will major vote fraud down Trump? I congratulate Truthout for the sin of publishing that possibility.

    http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/34607-will-the-2016-primaries-be-electronically-rigged

    And from my blog:

    Jan 21, 2012 - Did Ron Paul Win Iowa?

    A forbidden topic in our corporate media is vote fraud, or even suggesting that something is amiss. We all know that Mitt Romney won Iowa, unless you noticed a small article (http://caucuses.desmoinesregister.com/2012/01/19/register-exclusive-2012-gop-caucus-count-unresolved/) a few days later that the Iowa race is "unresolved" with details further down that Santorum probably won.

    It is possible that "unelectable" Ron Paul won, but we'll never know, because votes from eight precincts are missing! Missing? Iowa vote counters had to "hunt down" the results from dozens of precincts, and found the results for 134 precincts had errors which "they" corrected. Is the Republican party in Iowa run by fools, or mobsters? After the hundreds of hours of corporate media coverage of the Iowa campaign, you might think our media would find that an interesting story to pursue. Where is the FBI investigation?

    Mar 2, 2012 - More Vote Fraud

    For another example of blatant voter manipulation by our corporate media, read this.
    http://dailycaller.com/2012/02/15/maine-gop-adds-missing-caucus-votes-but-wont-release-updated-vote-count/

    It seems that Mitt Romney did not narrowly win the Maine primary as widely reported. When the vote tallies were announced, votes from several counties were missing. After complaints, they were counted, but the Republican guy in charge said that he would not release the results until March 10, because people were upset. Everyone suspects Ron Paul won, but he is not permitted to win any state, at least not until March 6 (super Tuesday) when Mitt Romney secures the nomination.

    I grew up in Philadelphia, I know what vote fraud is. The first time I went to register I registered I was met by a group of Irish thugs who threatened me if I did not register democrat. I did not as I had a sense of dignity. When I showed up to vote for the first time in my life I was told by a big thug leprechaun that I was not registered and to go home. I learned at that early age that voting is one big joke. Americans live in the kingdom of lies where the corrupt liars hold all the Aces up their sleeves and sadly young Americans are sent to die horrible deaths in order to defend this way of life and to spread it to other hell holes.

Just those that ARE coming over the border illegally – and then, as if on cue, Kate got murdered by an illegal Mexican He SAID ban all Muslims UNLESS, UNTIL we can figure out exactly who they are. All of this is logical. We either do it or we are NOT a country and gov is supposed to keep the citizens safe by law. NOT endanger us. Megyn has done this repeatedly, even getting shrill about it, with that STUPID grin on her face.

    Trump raised over 6 million in 2 hours of that wonderful event he held for the veterans. Even at the last minute Fox asked Trump to do the debate, but he said it was too late, he was committed to the veterans event.

    As far as evangies go, even some of their own top people figured out that they are NOT voting for a pastor, but for a president and they have to take this seriously. At least Trump doesn’t hate them, one said. He’s a GOOD businessman and it’s what the country needs – and he can NOT be bought off. Yes, he had good relations with the Clintons and with many other republicans too, not just democrats. He was a businessman. As such, he KNOWS how to get things done and done right.

    These evangies need to realize thatwe do not live under ISIS or in Iran and STOP pushing their damned religion on people who are NOT socially in agreement with their biblical views at all. Either that, or LOSE LOSE LOSE. Trump is NOT Romney. He can get democrats on his side, as Guilliani pointed out when he endorsed Trump. Falwell also endorsed Trump because, as he said, we are NOT voting for a pastor. At least they got some sense thinking that way.

    Megyn Kelly is not that pretty. Take away the cleavage and the short skirt and the blond hair, and facially she is quite mannish. I wonder about her T-levels, or perhaps it's just female attention-whoring and the desire to be at the center of everything. Makes me long for Howard K. Smith or even Walter Cronkite; leftist that he was, had more dignity than to shout "Look at me," every twelve seconds.

    Cleavage? She has none and therefore does not try to show it. Short skirt? Her legs are not impressive either, so she is one of the few females on the network who is not shown at a camera angle that emphasizes her legs. But she does have a unique voice and quick wit. That and an above average face can apparently take you a long way.

    Megyn Kelly is a narcissistic drama queen and closet liberal. She just pulls all this crap to draw attention to herself and boost ratings. She's probably a psychopath.

    You shouldn’t rule out the possibility that she is also angling to protect her future. It’s my understanding that she now has the highest rated cable show in the country, supplanting Bill O’Reilly, which has caused some resentment in that corner since Kelly apparently got her start on the O’Reilly show. Nevertheless, there was some talk back after the August debate brouhaha that Fox was thinking of dumping her in order to protect its brand, but apparently her ratings held up, which is why Fox changed its mind. She is probably thinking of the possibility of a switch to another cable channel should Fox dump her or should she get a better offer. I would think that another cable channel, such as CNN or MSNBC, would love to get her. I don’t think they would be hiring her for her journalistic skills.

    BTW I have been watching her show recently (whereas I never did before) as a result of the Trump dispute. One of the odd things I noticed was the frequent appearances of Glenn Beck. I realize he is a prominent supporter of Ted Cruz, but I’m wondering if Fox is trying to rehabilitate him in order to bring him back to Fox. The handling of Beck on the Kelly show has been very gentle and welcoming.

    I see you haven't been paying attention at all to his foreign policy positions, which stand in stark contrast to those of Hillary Clinton's (the likely Democratic nominee if she doesn't get indicted). He has questioned why, 60 years after we signed the armistice with North Korea, we still have 25,000 U.S. troops on the DMZ in Korea, an issue no other candidate, Republican or Democrat, has raised. He has criticized the war in Iraq (which Senator Hillary voted for). He has criticized the war against Libya (which SOS Hillary pushed over the opposition of SOD Robert Gates and refused to accept responsibility for the disastrous consequences of that terrible decision). He has opposed the "no-fly zones" over Syria (which candidate Hillary has spoken in favor of and which hold out the possibility of igniting WWIII with Russia). He has spoken out against our involvement in Ukraine (which candidate and SOS Hillary was pushing).

    Even on the immigration front, I see you make no mention of the fact that he has taken a strong stand against birthright citizenship and embraces the view that the problem can be handled by legislation and does not require a constitutional amendment. You make no mention of his vow to deport all the illegal aliens in our country. Or his suggestion that we, at least temporarily, bar the immigration of all Muslims.

    There are many bold positions he has taken thus far, contrary to your false claim. What about Hillary Clinton? That lying POS can't even tell us the truth about all the classified information that passed through her improper private email server. I think you should give serious consideration to adding "un" before your present screen name.

    Yes he’s against bla…bla…bla… but what, exactly, is he going to do to change it?

    He’s going to convice a Congress comprised of 535 people from two parties (including his own) that can’t stand him, to alter somehow avoid altering the constitution to end birthright citizenship?

    He’s going to somehow pull troops from the DMZ in direct defiance of the 70 year old military-industrial complex?

    He’s going to deport 30 million illegal aliens, 1/10th of our population, from an economy of apartment building owners, car washes, farms, factories, car salesmen, etc. who have come to depend on them?

    He was also going to revitalize Atlantic City, remember that?

Perhaps for your third post on unz.com, I would suggest you post a list of all the nasty things Hillary Clinton has said over the years about all the women her husband Bill Clinton has been sexually involved with during their long marriage, starting with Monica Lewinsky and working back.

Just looking around on this site reveals the increasing prevalence of serial commenters who often are Johnny-One-Notes, and who feel compelled to keep spewing back and forth with their arch-enemies or adding worthless endorsements of those with whom they agree. I don’t want to see the commenting here deteriorate in these ways, as it has at, say, Taki’s.

    But I’m now even more intrigued by someone who likes to mark the hydrant, yet evades direct engagement with the other party to what should be an enlightening, public conversation. That little REPLY button is down there to the left for a reason. Why not use it, right now, and tell us why you haven’t been doing so?

    I browse this site (inter alia) with JavaScript turned off, because my connection is shit. The reply button relies on JS.

    The problem with anonymous commenters is that no one can properly gauge how full of shit they are. Anonymous posters can contradict themselves from one post to the next. Full anonymity encourages lying, and provides a shield for liars. That’s why nobody trusts anonymous commenters.

    Thanks for the explanation, Svigor. In case you have forgotten, I was one of those complaining months ago about your failure to use the reply button because I suspected your practice was deliberate. Your excuse appears to be legitimate. I always use the reply button when I am replying to a specific message, but I have noticed that, on rare occasions, even when I have used the reply button, the name of the poster (and the specific message) to whom I am replying doesn't appear in my message after it survives moderation. It doesn't happen often enough to bring those isolated incidents to the attention of Ron Unz. He seems to have plenty on his plate, and I don't want to waste his time having him check out a relatively petty problem.

    So your explanation about JavaScript is more credible than it would be if I told you the same thing? And would it be more credible yet if you used your real name, not merely a "real handle"?

    Again, whether you do or don't "trust" the author, any assertion made on this site should stand or fall on its facial merit. Your take on anonymous posters sounds, frankly, a little bit labored (or paranoid).

    Our host welcomes anonymous contributors, and there are apparently quite a number of us here. When you challenged me about that, I answered your question in good faith -- but you have totally ignored what I said, despite blockquoting it back to me. Isn't that being "full of s**t"? I'm left to wonder whether you're trying to persuade or learn, or simply trying not to lose a point.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3423622/Makeup-free-Megyn-Kelly-steps-2007-high-fiber-diet-book-touted-overnight-bestseller.html

    What a difference a day makes! Make-up free Megyn Kelly steps out without fake lashes that were ‘longer than the Republican debate’ as diet book she touted becomes bestseller

    •Viewers had made fun of her long eyelashes during the GOP debate on Thursday night
    •On Friday Megyn was seen out and about in New York City – without the lashes or any make-up
    •However the Fox News anchor did spruce up her natural look with a very expensive fur coat
    •Meanwhile the 2007 book The F-Factor Diet that she had praised on her show soared to the top of the book charts

    White trash meets the big city. The irony is that this bottle blond bimbo can live a lavish UWS lifestyle because of all the stooges in Middle America who support Fox News, thinking they represent their values. Isn’t it ironic that it took a billionaire native New Yorker from Manhattan to expose Fox News, the GOP, and the conservative establishment as being hostile to Middle American borders and culture?

    If Ms. Mercer keeps writing about the same thing, she should expect recycled comments, too:

    "She must have his poster on her bedroom wall.

    Like the subject himself from time to time, this latest Trumpeting from Ms. Mercer speaks some truth about what has long gone wrong in our country. [But don't most readers of this site already know that TV is an inherently propagandistic, narcissistic medium? And why feed the beast by writing an entire column about The National Distraction?]

    But if The Establishment is really so shook by him, why is Trump constantly in the news? The contrast with how Ron Paul was (not) covered is astounding. And none of his adoring fans wants to hear about his utterly contrary past statements, his assertion that Snowden is a traitor, or his longstanding ties to the Clintons about whom he now conveniently rails. Can’t you people be pissed on your own, without having a Daddy take you by the hand to the bathroom?

    Trump’s ultimately a decoy, albeit one that gets off some good quacks. If he is elected, Ms. Mercer and a lot of other people around here are going to be as disappointed as were those who believed what Mr. Obama was saying in 2007-2008.

    To each and all: I promise not to cancel your vote."

    What’s unnerving is that writers who recognize that mass migration is the billionaires’ project believe this billionaire is damaging it. (One of these writers is even trying to induce yet another billionaire to adopt a populist program.

    "Megyn Kelly is not that pretty"

    She's mannish, but so are a lot of supposedly attractive women in the MSM. Makes sense in the world of high fashion, for instance that industry is run by gay men, but I don't know if that's true of Fox. Maybe they've been hypnotized into forgetting what attractive females are supposed to look like. There are some good ones on the network, though.

    She's not just mannish. She's also weird looking, with an alien-like quality to her head. One wonders why she's famous, for it can't be her journalistic chops or her interviewing style.

    I’ve never thought she was that pretty either. For some reason, I don’t find any of the “hot” girls on the cable news networks to be very pretty. Yes, they are sometimes attractive in a purely cosmetic way, but they are lacking in certain essential qualities that really capture the heart. And even had this not been the case, their entitled, girl-power, stuck up attitudes would have totally killed it for me. Her are some of the things I don’t like.

    1) They all dress like whores. The girls on FOX News wear skirts that go three-quarters of the way up their thigh, such that they have to keep their legs scrupulously crossed to avoid giving you the money shot. That, combined with their high heels and heavily applied eyeliner make them look like they’re on their way to a night club. Who told them that this was a professional way to present themselves?

    2) They’re all feminists. If the FOX girls are supposed to be conservatives, they are the kind of conservatives who believe that the liberals had it right up until about 10 years ago, but now it’s time to put the breaks on and conserve something. By their very career choice, not to mention their attitudes, actions, and opinions, they demonstrate that they are just fine with the progressive trends of modern society.

    3) They’re all giggly idiots. These women are vacuous, not very intelligent, immature, and unprofessional on the air. They act like they are there to have fun and amuse themselves. They don’t have the gravity to do serious news and analysis.

    Ironically, the one FOX girl who frequently defies these categories, who is actually good looking, professional, intelligent, truthful, and who dresses well, is Kirsten Powers…and she is the freakin’ liberal!

    We keep hearing about 'populism', 'populism', and 'populism'.

    What is populism? Being responsive to the people?

    There is a need for populism. People are sometimes right and need to be heard.

    I think populism becomes a problem if we were to assume that the People always know best. They don't. The masses or the mobs can be wrong. Very wrong.

    Elitism? It has value because the best educated and most intelligent sometimes do know what they're talking about. They should be the leaders and managers of society. But elitism is a problem if we assume the elites always know best. They don't. They sometimes favor theory over practice. Also, many of them gained status by serving the powerful and well-connected. So, elites never act on pure ideal but often serve The Power. Look how Colin Powell made a fool of himself at the UN to argue for Iraq War. Look how all those think tanks on left and right serve the likes of Koch Bros and Soros. Elites may be better educated but they too were made and favored by power. So, they serve the power above any ideal.

    Also, populism and elitism are not always opposite. Because the people tend to be rather ignorant, they can easily be manipulated by the elites.

    So, populism is, more often than not, a tool of elitism.

    So, the elites don't mind populism as long as THEY can to call the shots... like stirring up populist fears after 9/11 to support the invasion of Iraq. Clinton often played the populist: I feel Your Pain(when not your ass).

    And National Review never complained about Talk Radio populism as long it stuck to GOP speaking points. And what is FOX News but a populist channel that panders to lowbrow tastes? Why is Megan Kelly on the show? She looks like a beauty queen.

    But with Trump, populism has become un-moored. And that's what the elites don't like.

    Also, why isn't Sanders called a populist? Isn't he pandering to class angst and resentment? I guess he has the support of a 'better kind of people', the upper-middle class 'progressives'.

    Populism generally refers to white social conservative types who are low middle class or working class or poor.

    But the Alt Right needs to be wary of populism because people can easily be swayed and manipulated.

    Consider Frank Capra's MEET JOHN DOE. We see populism at its best --- simple Americans coming together --- , but this good quality can so easily be manipulated since goodness is earnest, sincere, and naive. The good can be taken for fools.

    https://youtu.be/flmdGgUtkCU?t=49m45s

    And consider all the sucker masses in FACE IN THE CROWD.

    But one saving grace about Trump populists is that they tend to be irreverent. They are not following Trump out of sincere and naive faith in his character. They know he's a sinner and a showman. They are not like Obama zombies who wept and peed in their pants as if he's the second coming of messiah.

    No, Trump supporters are a new kind of irreverent, cynical, and cocky populists who like Trump because he's a chaos candidate who is shaking things up.

    They've stuck with Trump not so much out of sincere faith/trust in him because they are onto the game that the elites want to derail him because they want total control of the narrative.

    And this is what drives the elites crazy. If Trump supporters believed in Donald's pristine goodness, then the bubble could easily be pricked by the elites by exposing his scandalous personal history.

    But Trump supporters know that history and don't care since politics have lost all innocence after Clinton, Bush II, and Obama.

    Besides, it's funny that the Lib elites would accuse Trump of vulgarity. They defended Clinton's antics in the White House.

    And what was more gauche and sickening that Obama's sham new messiah act? It was pure Hollywood. Vulgar, politics turned into Oprah show. And look how Michelle makes rap videos and slams basketballs and spends 100 million on vacation trips. Vulgar and trashy.

    The elites overlooked all of that, but they are offended by Trump's style?

    Also, don't the Liberal elites control Hollywood, Pop Music, and TV? What kind of culture have they been feeding to the people? Gangster rap and Lena Dunham. And shows like Simpsons and Family Guy. They encouraged vulgarity among the masses. They got rich doing it. But they know bitch about vulgarity? Please.

    If Libs are so sophisticated, why do they get their news from comedy shows like Jon Stewart and Bill Maher? Why did they make Michael Moore the most famous documentarian in the world? And why is the vulgar ugly spectacle of 'gay pride' parades their idea of morality and spirituality?

    A sophisticated Liberal is someone who laughs at Sarah Palin but just adores Bruce 'Caitlyn' Jenner.

    I actually did a college paper on MJD. Trump is no John Doe, or should I say, John Doe was no Trump. When they cut Doe’s mic, he fumbled around and was pushed off the lectern. He didn’t know how to fight back. Plus he didn’t have Twitter (big disadvantage).

    I don't mind Trump's hyperbole. It's a way of saying "I'm going to get it done" in a world full of politicians saying they'll get things done.

    "I'm going to build a wall, and I'm going to make Mexico pay for it" means "I'm going to build a wall, for sure...even if I can't make Mexico pay for it." He's basically hanging his hat on what he's saying. If he's elected, nobody's going to forget what he said about building a wall and making Mexico pay for it. If he doesn't at least get the wall built, he'll catch hell for it. Also a negotiating tactic. You go in demanding a wall, and that Mexico pays for it. You come out with a wall. And finally, it's how he's done so well this far; he says something a bit outrageous, and the media goes into a feeding frenzy.

    Which he could, by taxing remittances. Mexican gov't can give rebates to impacted Mexicans if they don't want to see the poor little guy taking the hit.

    The Mexican govt cares less for its people than ours,and if they gave the peons remittances,it would only be to suppress the coming revolution a little more into the future.

The girls on FOX News wear skirts that go three-quarters of the way up their thigh, such that they have to keep their legs scrupulously crossed to avoid giving you the money shot. That, combined with their high heels and heavily applied eyeliner make them look like they're on their way to a night club. Who told them that this was a professional way to present themselves?

    2) They're all feminists. If the FOX girls are supposed to be conservatives, they are the kind of conservatives who believe that the liberals had it right up until about 10 years ago, but now it's time to put the breaks on and conserve something. By their very career choice, not to mention their attitudes, actions, and opinions, they demonstrate that they are just fine with the progressive trends of modern society.

    3) They're all giggly idiots. These women are vacuous, not very intelligent, immature, and unprofessional on the air. They act like they are there to have fun and amuse themselves. They don't have the gravity to do serious news and analysis.

    Ironically, the one FOX girl who frequently defies these categories, who is actually good looking, professional, intelligent, truthful, and who dresses well, is Kirsten Powers...and she is the freakin' liberal!

    'By far the most common use is in the sense of “enormousness”; the supposedly correct senses of great wickedness (definitions 1 and 2) are used just under a quarter of the time. '
    http://www.arrantpedantry.com/2012/11/20/the-enormity-of-a-usage-problem/

    My American Heritage dictionary (1976 ed.) defines “enormity” as “1. The quality of passing all moral bounds; excessive wickedness; outrageousness. 2. A monstrous offense or evil; an outrage.” The “Usage ” note (a feature of the AH dictionary when it was first introduced in 1969) states as follows:

    Enormity is not used acceptably when it is applied to indicate mere size, without the accompanying sense of outrageousness, wickedness, or evil. In the following example, termed unacceptable by 93 percent of the Usage Panel, it refers merely to physical extent: The enormity of Latin America is readily apparent from these maps. The desired sense would be conveyed by immensity, hugeness, or enormousness.”

    So it appears from this side of the Atlantic that Literacy Project is correct and should be commended for his pickup, but then I try to be a stickler when it comes to correct English usage, even though my messages often fall far short of the ideal, largely due to the haste in which they are prepared. (Now it is possible that the standards have been lessened since the date my dictionary was published, but that would be a shame. After all, we now see “gender” used incorrectly (imo) when “sex” is being meant, and one “graduates college” instead of “graduates from college.”)

  • Priss Factor [AKA "Dominique Francon Society"] says:

    We keep hearing about ‘populism’, ‘populism’, and ‘populism’.

    What is populism? Being responsive to the people?

    There is a need for populism. People are sometimes right and need to be heard.

    I think populism becomes a problem if we were to assume that the People always know best. They don’t. The masses or the mobs can be wrong. Very wrong.

    Elitism? It has value because the best educated and most intelligent sometimes do know what they’re talking about. They should be the leaders and managers of society. But elitism is a problem if we assume the elites always know best. They don’t. They sometimes favor theory over practice. Also, many of them gained status by serving the powerful and well-connected. So, elites never act on pure ideal but often serve The Power. Look how Colin Powell made a fool of himself at the UN to argue for Iraq War. Look how all those think tanks on left and right serve the likes of Koch Bros and Soros. Elites may be better educated but they too were made and favored by power. So, they serve the power above any ideal.

    Also, populism and elitism are not always opposite. Because the people tend to be rather ignorant, they can easily be manipulated by the elites.

    So, populism is, more often than not, a tool of elitism.

    So, the elites don’t mind populism as long as THEY can to call the shots… like stirring up populist fears after 9/11 to support the invasion of Iraq. Clinton often played the populist: I feel Your Pain(when not your ass).

    And National Review never complained about Talk Radio populism as long it stuck to GOP speaking points. And what is FOX News but a populist channel that panders to lowbrow tastes? Why is Megan Kelly on the show? She looks like a beauty queen.

    But with Trump, populism has become un-moored. And that’s what the elites don’t like.

    Also, why isn’t Sanders called a populist? Isn’t he pandering to class angst and resentment? I guess he has the support of a ‘better kind of people’, the upper-middle class ‘progressives’.

    Populism generally refers to white social conservative types who are low middle class or working class or poor.

    But the Alt Right needs to be wary of populism because people can easily be swayed and manipulated.

    Consider Frank Capra’s MEET JOHN DOE. We see populism at its best — simple Americans coming together — , but this good quality can so easily be manipulated since goodness is earnest, sincere, and naive. The good can be taken for fools.

    [MORE]

    And consider all the sucker masses in FACE IN THE CROWD.

    But one saving grace about Trump populists is that they tend to be irreverent. They are not following Trump out of sincere and naive faith in his character. They know he’s a sinner and a showman. They are not like Obama zombies who wept and peed in their pants as if he’s the second coming of messiah.

    No, Trump supporters are a new kind of irreverent, cynical, and cocky populists who like Trump because he’s a chaos candidate who is shaking things up.

    They’ve stuck with Trump not so much out of sincere faith/trust in him because they are onto the game that the elites want to derail him because they want total control of the narrative.

    And this is what drives the elites crazy. If Trump supporters believed in Donald’s pristine goodness, then the bubble could easily be pricked by the elites by exposing his scandalous personal history.

    But Trump supporters know that history and don’t care since politics have lost all innocence after Clinton, Bush II, and Obama.

    Besides, it’s funny that the Lib elites would accuse Trump of vulgarity. They defended Clinton’s antics in the White House.

    And what was more gauche and sickening that Obama’s sham new messiah act? It was pure Hollywood. Vulgar, politics turned into Oprah show. And look how Michelle makes rap videos and slams basketballs and spends 100 million on vacation trips. Vulgar and trashy.

    The elites overlooked all of that, but they are offended by Trump’s style?

    Also, don’t the Liberal elites control Hollywood, Pop Music, and TV? What kind of culture have they been feeding to the people? Gangster rap and Lena Dunham. And shows like Simpsons and Family Guy. They encouraged vulgarity among the masses. They got rich doing it. But they know bitch about vulgarity? Please.

    If Libs are so sophisticated, why do they get their news from comedy shows like Jon Stewart and Bill Maher? Why did they make Michael Moore the most famous documentarian in the world? And why is the vulgar ugly spectacle of ‘gay pride’ parades their idea of morality and spirituality?

    A sophisticated Liberal is someone who laughs at Sarah Palin but just adores Bruce ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner.

    “I’m going to build a wall, and I’m going to make Mexico pay for it” means “I’m going to build a wall, for sure…even if I can’t make Mexico pay for it.” He’s basically hanging his hat on what he’s saying. If he’s elected, nobody’s going to forget what he said about building a wall and making Mexico pay for it. If he doesn’t at least get the wall built, he’ll catch hell for it. Also a negotiating tactic. You go in demanding a wall, and that Mexico pays for it. You come out with a wall. And finally, it’s how he’s done so well this far; he says something a bit outrageous, and the media goes into a feeding frenzy.

  • Former House Oversight chairman: ‘FBI director would like to indict Clinton and Abedin’

    “You can’t have 1,300 highly sensitive emails that contain highly sensitive material that’s taken all, or in part from classified documents, and have it be an accident,” he said. “There’s no question, she knew she had a responsibility and she circumvented it. And she circumvented it a second time when she knowingly let highly-classified material get onto emails in an unclassified format.”

    Issa’s comments come just two days after former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, claimed he has friends in the FBI who “tell [him] they’re ready to indict and they’re ready to recommend an indictment.”

    “They also say that if the attorney general does not indict, they’re going public,” DeLay said Tuesday during an interview on Newsmax TV.

    How in God’s Name is this woman going to win a presidential election with FBI agents going on Fox and telling the world she should’ve been indicted for routinely and knowingly breaking national security laws? Or would Fox choose to ignore the issue out of spite for Trump?

    “Well, we couldn’t very well indict the presumptive Democratic nominee, now could we?” – doesn’t make much of a campaign slogan. “Hillary – if it was anyone else, she’d be in jail” – there, that’s much pithier.

    Funny how the feminists lead with misogyny. Sort of like how lefties love using homosexuality as a smear, when they aren't lauding it. Schizos totally lacking in character or principle, the lot of them.

    Kelly characterized those questions as an example of “good journalism” but they were as you indicate delivered from Ailes and Murdoch for her to read.

    Kelly’s giggly appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show reveals her hypocrisy on the “war on women” issue. I’m not qualified to comment on Stern’s life’s work but I’m going to go out on a limb and say that treating women as other than lusty tarts has not been the focus of his life’s work.

    The decision by Ailes to stick Kelly back on the “moderator” panel for this last debate was a studied insult to Trump and they were without a doubt waiting for a new opportunity to ambush him in some dishonest way. Again. Trump showed justifiable contempt for the way in which the media has injected itself into politics rather than reporting on it. The media are irrelevant.

    Yet AGAIN the GOP has bent over forward to hand the opportunity to have GOP candidates make sensible presentations on their views and exhibit a bit of their personality to journalists with an agenda of their own (with the probably exception of Neil Cavuto and his co-host).

    The media are part of the problem in this country and they should be limited to providing cameras and microphones at commercial-free events staged in venues chosen by the candidates. Brian Lamb of C-Span fame should choose a panel of three non-journalist interlocutors to preside, one of whom should be a citizen chosen by lot. Each interlocutor should be required to ask one of the questions submitted by an auto parts store clerk, a Border Patrol field officer, a rancher on the Arizona-Mexico border, a soldier, Charles Hugh Smith, Karl Denninger, Paul Craig Roberts, and Pee-wee Herman. A phone-in vote for the national audience should be provided for a la Dancing with the Stars.

He has questioned why, 60 years after we signed the armistice with North Korea, we still have 25,000 U.S. troops on the DMZ in Korea, an issue no other candidate, Republican or Democrat, has raised. He has criticized the war in Iraq (which Senator Hillary voted for). He has criticized the war against Libya (which SOS Hillary pushed over the opposition of SOD Robert Gates and refused to accept responsibility for the disastrous consequences of that terrible decision). He has opposed the "no-fly zones" over Syria (which candidate Hillary has spoken in favor of and which hold out the possibility of igniting WWIII with Russia). He has spoken out against our involvement in Ukraine (which candidate and SOS Hillary was pushing).

    Even on the immigration front, I see you make no mention of the fact that he has taken a strong stand against birthright citizenship and embraces the view that the problem can be handled by legislation and does not require a constitutional amendment. You make no mention of his vow to deport all the illegal aliens in our country. Or his suggestion that we, at least temporarily, bar the immigration of all Muslims.

    There are many bold positions he has taken thus far, contrary to your false claim. What about Hillary Clinton?

    “I decided to invite Donald Trump on his visit to Britain to come with me to my constituency because he has problems with Mexicans and he has problems with Muslims,” Corbyn said on Sunday……

    Kelly characterized those questions as an example of "good journalism" but they were as you indicate delivered from Ailes and Murdoch for her to read.

    Kelly's giggly appearance on Howard Stern's radio show reveals her hypocrisy on the "war on women" issue. I'm not qualified to comment on Stern's life's work but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that treating women as other than lusty tarts has not been the focus of his life's work.

    The decision by Ailes to stick Kelly back on the "moderator" panel for this last debate was a studied insult to Trump and they were without a doubt waiting for a new opportunity to ambush him in some dishonest way. Again. Trump showed justifiable contempt for the way in which the media has injected itself into politics rather than reporting on it. The media are irrelevant.

    Yet AGAIN the GOP has bent over forward to hand the opportunity to have GOP candidates make sensible presentations on their views and exhibit a bit of their personality to journalists with an agenda of their own (with the probably exception of Neil Cavuto and his co-host).

    The media are part of the problem in this country and they should be limited to providing cameras and microphones at commercial-free events staged in venues chosen by the candidates. Brian Lamb of C-Span fame should choose a panel of three non-journalist interlocutors to preside, one of whom should be a citizen chosen by lot. Each interlocutor should be required to ask one of the questions submitted by an auto parts store clerk, a Border Patrol field officer, a rancher on the Arizona-Mexico border, a soldier, Charles Hugh Smith, Karl Denninger, Paul Craig Roberts, and Pee-wee Herman. A phone-in vote for the national audience should be provided for a la Dancing with the Stars.

    "enormity" of the Trump Revolution". As a long-time student of the Issacson-Mercer, I'm shocked at this butchery of the English language. An "enormity" is a large atrocity, a war-crime or the like. What Ilana meant was "size", or "dimensions". Speaking of which, I thought Trump's tweeting out Megyn's sex-kitten pix in GQ was a nice touch

    ‘By far the most common use is in the sense of “enormousness”; the supposedly correct senses of great wickedness (definitions 1 and 2) are used just under a quarter of the time. ‘

    My American Heritage dictionary (1976 ed.) defines "enormity" as "1. The quality of passing all moral bounds; excessive wickedness; outrageousness. 2. A monstrous offense or evil; an outrage." The "Usage " note (a feature of the AH dictionary when it was first introduced in 1969) states as follows:

    "Enormity is not used acceptably when it is applied to indicate mere size, without the accompanying sense of outrageousness, wickedness, or evil. In the following example, termed unacceptable by 93 percent of the Usage Panel, it refers merely to physical extent: The enormity of Latin America is readily apparent from these maps. The desired sense would be conveyed by immensity, hugeness, or enormousness."

    So it appears from this side of the Atlantic that Literacy Project is correct and should be commended for his pickup, but then I try to be a stickler when it comes to correct English usage, even though my messages often fall far short of the ideal, largely due to the haste in which they are prepared. (Now it is possible that the standards have been lessened since the date my dictionary was published, but that would be a shame. After all, we now see "gender" used incorrectly (imo) when "sex" is being meant, and one "graduates college" instead of "graduates from college.")

    You are wrong about the use of the word enormous, enormity and so forth. Enormous hair. Enormous waves in the ocean, etc. The enormity of his billion dollar donation stunned the world. It can be used to describe GOOD things OR BAD things.

    Megyn DID pick on Trump in August with ridiculous questions about words he might use against women, considering he uses them against men too. SO WHAT? Hillary did DEEDS against women that her husband raped. She takes every chance she gets to try to much up what Trump says, while, eg, O'Reilly ASKS Trump exactly what he meant. EG, of course he did NOT refer to all Mexicans as criminals. Just those that ARE coming over the border illegally - and then, as if on cue, Kate got murdered by an illegal Mexican He SAID ban all Muslims UNLESS, UNTIL we can figure out exactly who they are. All of this is logical. We either do it or we are NOT a country and gov is supposed to keep the citizens safe by law. NOT endanger us. Megyn has done this repeatedly, even getting shrill about it, with that STUPID grin on her face.

    Trump raised over 6 million in 2 hours of that wonderful event he held for the veterans. Even at the last minute Fox asked Trump to do the debate, but he said it was too late, he was committed to the veterans event.

    As far as evangies go, even some of their own top people figured out that they are NOT voting for a pastor, but for a president and they have to take this seriously. At least Trump doesn't hate them, one said. He's a GOOD businessman and it's what the country needs - and he can NOT be bought off. Yes, he had good relations with the Clintons and with many other republicans too, not just democrats. He was a businessman. As such, he KNOWS how to get things done and done right.

    These evangies need to realize thatwe do not live under ISIS or in Iran and STOP pushing their damned religion on people who are NOT socially in agreement with their biblical views at all. Either that, or LOSE LOSE LOSE. Trump is NOT Romney. He can get democrats on his side, as Guilliani pointed out when he endorsed Trump. Falwell also endorsed Trump because, as he said, we are NOT voting for a pastor. At least they got some sense thinking that way.

    So, if I follow your thinking, I should not vote for Trump who has said he opposes "no-fly zones" over Syria and thinks the wars against Iraq and Libya were disasters, but instead vote for Rubio or even Hillary Clinton, both of whom have promised to establish "no-fly zones" over Syria to defeat ISIS and Assad and the Russians (even though such action would be illegal and in clear violation of international law without a UN Security Council resolution and possibly lead to WWIII) and that the wars in Iraq and Libya were good ideas? If that is not your point, then what is your point? Why is it better to not vote for Trump and thus avoid possible disappointment but vote instead for Rubio or Clinton and not be disappointed with the promised dismal results? Why does avoidance of disappointment weigh so heavily in your thinking? I voted for George W. Bush in 2000 because I believed his BS about being opposed to "nation-building." I didn't realize he was lying through his teeth. And, since I disagreed with the Iraq War from the start, I didn't vote for him in 2004. There is no guarantee in politics. You try to make the best decision based on what you know at the time and your best guess of how the candidate will act once in office. It's sort of like investing in stocks.

    Sounds like we share some views. But I still say: don’t vote for any of them.

    I contributed heavily to Ron Paul in 2012. If he, or anyone equivalent, were in the race this time, I might do so again. And I would certainly vote for such a candidate, and encourage others to do so.

    But there is no such candidate, certainly not Donald Trump.

    National politics in this country are irredeemable. So I’ve concluded that the best way for me to address this farcical democracy is to withdraw my endorsement of the process.

    I have to marvel at Divine Providence.

    The unusual spelling of Megyn Kelly's first name is itself the perfect metaphor for her whole personality.

    First there's the "Me," as in "It's all about ME, Megyn Kelly."

    And then there's the "gyn." Gyn as in gynecological. As in "I am Megyn, hear me roar." As in "she had blood coming out of her whatever."

    Megyn Kelly is a vacuous and voluminous ego with a female life support system.

  • One other thing that comes to mind is the reaction of Megyn Kelly after the first debate in August. You could sense that she loved the validation of being regarded as a “serious player” in the big-leagues of U.S. Presidential politics. Everybody on Fox after the debate was praising the moderators for their “tough, hard hitting questions” in the most fawning manner. I was watching the “Kelly File” after the debate, and her guest fawningly praised Megyn for the quality of her questions. I had to burst out laughing when Megyn paused, seriously pondered the remark and said, with a straight face, that “yes, I have to agree with you. Those questions were really good.” What a smug, pompous POS. Very attractive, though. I must give her that.

    Will major vote fraud down Trump? I congratulate Truthout for the sin of publishing that possibility.

    http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/34607-will-the-2016-primaries-be-electronically-rigged

    And from my blog:

    Jan 21, 2012 - Did Ron Paul Win Iowa?

    A forbidden topic in our corporate media is vote fraud, or even suggesting that something is amiss. We all know that Mitt Romney won Iowa, unless you noticed a small article (http://caucuses.desmoinesregister.com/2012/01/19/register-exclusive-2012-gop-caucus-count-unresolved/) a few days later that the Iowa race is "unresolved" with details further down that Santorum probably won.

    It is possible that "unelectable" Ron Paul won, but we'll never know, because votes from eight precincts are missing! Missing? Iowa vote counters had to "hunt down" the results from dozens of precincts, and found the results for 134 precincts had errors which "they" corrected. Is the Republican party in Iowa run by fools, or mobsters? After the hundreds of hours of corporate media coverage of the Iowa campaign, you might think our media would find that an interesting story to pursue. Where is the FBI investigation?

    Mar 2, 2012 - More Vote Fraud

    For another example of blatant voter manipulation by our corporate media, read this.
    http://dailycaller.com/2012/02/15/maine-gop-adds-missing-caucus-votes-but-wont-release-updated-vote-count/

    It seems that Mitt Romney did not narrowly win the Maine primary as widely reported. When the vote tallies were announced, votes from several counties were missing. After complaints, they were counted, but the Republican guy in charge said that he would not release the results until March 10, because people were upset. Everyone suspects Ron Paul won, but he is not permitted to win any state, at least not until March 6 (super Tuesday) when Mitt Romney secures the nomination.

    I have been arguing for years that Iowa is irrelevant as far as the Republican nomination goes. First, instead of a primary, they have that goofy “caucus” system of voting, which keeps turnout low. Secondly, losing Iowa doesn’t seem to matter to the eventual winner of the nomination at all. Just look at 2008 when Huckabee won and 2012 when Santorum won. Thirdly, evangelicals seem to wield a disproportionate influence, and their evaluation of competent candidates seems shaky and divorced from reality. Thus we had Santorum win in 2012, while Romney, with far superior credentials, hardly campaigned at all. Look at how well Ben Carson did for so many months, largely due to support from evangelicals, who seem to operate under the delusion that being nice and having pleasant manners makes you fit to be the chief executive officer in the U.S., even when you have absolutely no background or experience on which to base that judgment. Totally delusional imo.

    I have also been saying that Iowa is not vital to Trump. If he wins Iowa and goes on to win in NH and SC, then the race will be essentially over. But if Trump loses in Iowa, then he will go on to trounce Cruz in NH and SC and will likely be the nominee anyway. Last night’s debate on Fox without Trump showed that Cruz is not ready for the spotlight. People got to see Cruz without the protective cover of Trump, and, imo, it wasn’t a pretty sight. You got to see why Cruz is so detested among his colleagues in Washington. He lacks the stature to be President.
