  1. Why should she? She’s leading by freaking 10 points in North Carolina and Virginia, about tied in Georgia. She doesn’t need to take any risks at all, because the American people are beyond cucked and Trump can’t saying stupid things.

    There was the one poll of NC showing her with a nine point lead...everything else was closer. But the big problem Trump has right now is that if you give him everything where he is competitive (including FL OH and IA) hes still short.

    With VA and CO basically gone, hes forced to win PA, which hasnt voted Republican since 1988. So yeah, the shrew can be pretty confident.

    I think this situation is very dynamic and unpredictable. Remember that prior to BREXIT the polls showed a solid plurality favoring "Stay". Nigel Farage attributes this discrepancy to the intimidation factor when asked for an opinion in a non-anonymous setting.

    I think Trump is doing great. The contrary impression is entirely due to the unprecedented media onslaught imo. Since the media is now being exposed as so completely dishonest, hypocritical, and unethical (or as Trump more concisely puts it, as lying sleaseballs), there is now already a very considerable pushback. Of course due to our demographic problem plus feminism we may well be screwed in any case. Trump is the very last person who should ever be blamed.

    To be more specific Hildabeast is working hard to make Whites a racial minority through open borders & amnesty, so why would she give a damn about Whites who are murdered by Blacks? At this point what difference does it make? She will say pointing out hate crimes against Whites does nothing to end institutional racism against Blacks.

    That was her cop-out answer when Bernie Sanders accused her of being too soft on Wall Street. Hildabeast said going after Wall Street and the big banks will still not end institutional racism against African Americans.

    That's a big joke.

    Democrats do not care about whites being murdered or raped by blacks, Muslims or Hispanics. In fact they are at the forefront of demonizng whites and reducing us to a despised racial minority.

    If anything the democrats are the party of criminals and always has been going back 40 years. They are the first to protect criminals and lessen jail time for them, they are the first to white wash crime stats to make areas look better than they are. They are the first to defend mass killers so as long they are not white. Tookie William's was a beloved icon by the Democrats. Mateen is as well. The same the Tsarnev brothers.

    They are the first group to strip people of the right to self-defense and to own weapons, they are the first to fight against three strikes.

  3. Cops need to leave the brothers alone. No matter what we doing. Part of reparations need to be we can go anywhere we want, any time we want, and do anything we want, and the man just sit there and take it. Or we burn down the city and the man has to rebuild it.

    Agreed. The "Sister Souljah" bit was and attempt by Bubba to try to convince the voters whose grandpappy was a New Deal Democrat that he was just a good ol' Arkansas white boy jes' like them. It was a con, of course, but that was 25 years ago when the remnants of the white working class was still a political force, and Clinton needed their votes.

    Today, the Democratic Party is the explicitly anti-white, anti-male, anti-hetero party. Hillary would probably stand to gain more votes within her base by supporting a Sister Souljah-type today than by criticizing her.

    There's a lot of money to be made, then.

    I just checked 5Dimes, and Hillary is at -380 (3.8 to 1), with Donald at +365. That's the same split as a 10-point favorite and underdog in a football game.
  8. They put a lid on the darkies after the convention…. but it’s like herding cats. He/she/it knows there is no controlling the identity groups when they get uppity.

    The coalition on the left is an unlikely bunch with nothing in common but a visceral hatred for anything White, Right or self employed.

    What do Latino Catholics have in common with Muslims?

    What do Blacks have in common with illegals who over supply entry jobs and want the flood gates open for more?

    What do Feminists have in common with males? of any stripe or color?

    What do gays have in common with the rag heads that would have them caged at the bottom of their lap pools?

    And what do Bernie Bots .. in debt up to their piercings.. have in common with Silicon valley types who want boatloads of $12000 a year East Indians.??

    This is the LEFT?…. in all it’s gory glory… IF Trump would just stick to the script…

    Jobs, no more visas… tax breaks for working families… and no more war.

    this bunch will cannibalize itself before the elections without the red meat tossed every day

  9. She’s coasting & Trump isn’t forcing the issue. He’s too busy warring with the NYT who by the way he gave 70 interviews to compared to her 6 these past two months.

    She literally could go on vacation the next 3 months & would still go on to win, why upset the black political & media elite now?

  10. All of the South Asian, East Asian, and Arab store owners who have had their mom & pop businesses destroyed by Sasha & Malia’s brothers are still going to vote for Hildabeast.

    In fact these immigrant store owners probably blame Donald Trump for causing Blacks to get angry enough to destroy their businesses, even though The Donald has not openly said anything negative about The Blacks.

  11. I’m not hearing much about the fact that the black sheriff of Milwaukee is a Trump supporter.

    That isn't the problem since Trump's statements are largely correct. However, the media portrays them as stupid and beyond the pale and the stupid American public isn't interested in the truth.

    Case in point, I am sorry to admit, is my Dad. Nothing you can say about Hillary will change his mind. He thinks everything said about Hillary is a lie and he doesn't need to go to any website. He made fun of Trump saying Obama and Hillary founded ISIS and I tried to tell him why it really is true and all he could do was come up with excuses for why it is a lie or why she was not responsible - right down to total stupidity such as the CIA takes its marching orders from Congress and not the executive so the Secretary of State isn't responsible in any way. He actually thought our attempts to interfere in Russian/Ukrainian politics was necessary so "we don't have to fight them here if we fight them there". He will not do anything to see the reality of the situation with our government so how can he ever come to the conclusion that even if you don't like Trump, voting for Hillary guarantees that nothing will change.

    My Dad isn't stupid and is probably smarter than 50% of the population - that is the scary part.

    "Today, the Democratic Party is....explicitly anti-white, anti-male, anti-hetero..." If that were true, how could they win any elections? A slight majority of whites are female and 95% of all races and both sexes are heterosexual. "Explicitly anti-male"? If that were true, everyone would know the truth about black male violence and criminality and black savages and predators would be swiftly and harshly punished rather than systemically and repeatedly coddled. All things considered, black males are the most indulged, by far, of all criminals. If that were true, an inpenetrable wall would have been built long ago on the Mexican border and there would be virtually no illegal or legal immigration from Mexico and Central/South America. If that were true, there would be few if any Muslims in America and virtually no Muslim immigration and no threat of domestic terrorism.

    George Soros would not have crowned Hildabeast THE CHOSEN ONE if he did not believe she was a true soldier of the Left Wing cause.

    George Soros and Hildabeast are politically sympatico with each other. It’s a match made in hell. Every Demon needs his Queen.

  19. Is this even a serious question?

  20. So what’s the plan? She would have to say what she was going to do. Unless you are willing to shoot into the rioters all you can do is stand around and let it burn. What Trump could do is announce massive cuts to fed gov and the military, transfering the resouces to … who knows, sounds like the post Vietnam world doesn’t it

    Not to mention a collapse of state and local finances due to endless wars and lush benefits packages means the police are increasingly retired, which means they arent going to show up for riot duty.

    [Mayor] Barrett asked every resident of the neighborhood to help the police restore order. Ald.

It's going to take a lot more.

    Yes, it's going to take a more active and engaged mayor and common council willing to do whatever they can to help neighborhoods where many law-abiding residents feel long-ignored. Yes, it's going to take a more active and engaged criminal justice system that doesn't slap violent young offenders on the wrist.

    … It's going to take more than government leaders. It's going to take a long-term commitment by people inside and outside Milwaukee, most of whom aren't government officials, to find more ways to connect family supporting jobs to people who desperately need them; to prepare people for their jobs even if they have lived through traumatic childhoods; to start building a cycle where one upward step leads to another.

    Right. Perot split the GOP vote in 1992 and Dole didn't have that much charisma in 1996. (I mean, he wasn't that bad, but Clinton was extremely charismatic.)

    Overall, I agree with the other commenters: you do a Sister Souljah moment when you need to tack back to center. Hillary's got the center right now, and the left; no reason to do so. The left is terrified of Trump, and the center is...terrified of Trump.

    Still, we got three months, let's see. I wouldn't give up yet, Hillary has strong negatives as well. I think Trump needs to calm down a little--he's got the nomination, now he has to do the center dance. Hit her on jobs and immigration and trade, and avoid making any pronouncements that will spook the suburbanites...Nixon was able to talk about the 'silent majority'. You want to be the mainstream candidate, against the elites who think crime and terrorism are OK. BLM can be a rich source of things to scare the middle with if you just let them go. Conservative channels also need to push the Ferguson effect and so on.

    Jefferson, i think that's overstating it. Hillary is in the lead--no surprise. I've said two things from the beginning of this cycle
    1) The Repubs would not nominate JEB--the base is more small "r", republican, not royalist.
    2) Hillary is the clear favorite, but has high negatives and is beatable.

    America doesn't have a stiffy for Hillary--except for some number of women "of a certain age". (If it weren't for all the other racial and religious pampered groups, American women would be the most indulged and pampered people on the planet and yet managed to feel put upon.) Rather Hillary is on top, despite America not liking or trusting her.

    I really admire Trump, taking on the role of the nationalist candidate--the only even semi-nationalist (major party) we've had since Reagan--at the cost of a lot of scummy abuse and lost business opportunities. However, the dude does seem--for a hugely successful guy--to have some ego issues, and tends to divert attention to personal whiny crap and have a hard time getting out of his own way.

    I think his last chance is in the debates. Hillary's program of open immigration--amnesty, non-enforcement, "invite the world" on steroids--is simply incompatible with improvement in working and middle class Americans employment and income. Rather it's a recipe for more unemployment, wage stagnation and rising inequality. Trump needs to make this brutally clear and nail Hillary to the wall with it. Then he's got a shot. If he doesn't it's done. (And we're on to the discussion of survival post-Trump.)

    There was the one poll of NC showing her with a nine point lead…everything else was closer. But the big problem Trump has right now is that if you give him everything where he is competitive (including FL OH and IA) hes still short.

    With VA and CO basically gone, hes forced to win PA, which hasnt voted Republican since 1988. So yeah, the shrew can be pretty confident.

    PPP, a North Carolina Democrat pollster of great repute, had NC tied in a poll done at the same time. NBC/WSJ/Marist always seem to produce the worst numbers for Trump. I believe PPP, NC will go Trump .

    Trump had the nomination and an emerging lead to repeatedly piss it away with dumb, petty feuds. This has probably sealed his fate with professional white voters who increasingly view his incompetence in the post-convention campaign as a likely indicator of his presidency. Most know from their own professional lives when a person repeatedly screws up like this on the job, they are fired.

  44. Trump supporters need to face the fact that he is a guy who has a good issue set but is not a good candidate. Usually guys like that get weeded out in the primaries — guys like Herman Cain (somewhat different set of issues). Trump got through because he was speaking about important things that were mostly unspoken by other candidates. He might get lucky and have Julian Assange save him but he is drowning in his own verbal diarrhea. He has way too much in common with Sarah Palin.

    It’s true that the left has control of almost all the commanding heights of the culture. But they got it by a 100-year march through the institutions. Conservatives are looking for a savior, that one guy who is going to turn it all around. That one Supreme Court pick. You can’t throw a Hail Mary every play. We need a long series of 4-yard runs off tackle. Conservatives need to go into government at a local level and work their way up. They need to go into the corporations, the media, academia, and everything else. They have to have lots of experience and earn respect. They have to have their own long march. Oh, and they have to have kids. None of this one-and-done stuff that I see so often. “Oh, one kid crimps our lifestyle so much! We’re finished!” Yes, we are if that is the attitude.

    One of Trump's biggest problems as a candidate is that he's pretty old. He was much sharper earlier on in the campaign in terms of picking his fights and dealing with the media, and was often able to work the 24 hour news cycle to his advantage with strategically timed endorsements and the like, but has stumbled more recently into no-win fights that have not been defused. Unlike Hillary, he has little friendly media and no handlers to shelter him from his missteps, and hasn't really had the stamina to maintain his war with the media. Hillary can't really campaign that well either but hasn't had to.

    True, so in a sense the problem is with Trump, but really the problem is with the political system. From my perspective what Trump is saying is common sense but our political parties and media are so disgracefully fucked up that common sense is beyond the pale. So no one who believes in common sense that is a normal politican exists. It's vote for a wackadoo outsider or vote for an insider who believes in poisoning America to death.

    What's killing him in the polls is remorseless negative press. Note that it's not pushing Hillary into the 50s, it's just putting him in the 30s. On Election Day he's getting at least as much of the vote as Romney or McCain got, and likely more because even with the bad polling he's been having he usually wins independents anyhow.

    As many people have pointed out, there is zero social consequence for saying "Clinton" in a poll, and yet she's not polling at 55% plus. In fact, given 4 way options, people pick her even less, where she's sometimes at 40%.

    Trump could still lose and we could have a zombie for president just like in the movies, but he's not doing that badly and is in a lot of state polling already making up ground.

    HOW is he going to make any dent if he goes along with the media narrative on any subject. Take immigration. This is what you are supposed to say:

    Immigrants are our greatest national treasure, many times more valuable than citizens. Their overuse of our welfare system is a validation of how much wonderfulness is imparted to the country by their presence. The only real problem is that they can actually be too wonderful for our own good and it makes the worthless citizens feel bad.

    Deviate from that and you are a racist, xenophobic psychotic. The problem isn't trump it is that there is NO way to get a message out there that the media don't like.

    Actually, letting the GOPe-inclined states and districts get a pretaste of their futures, so they see the err of their ways, is very humane, not cruel. Georgia is under 60% white now Federalist, the hour is late. People in these states need to see what the future will look like if the Paul Ryan-types get their way. So again, instead of Charlotte, Maine, Atlanta, Nashville, and St. Paul getting all the Muslim refugees, let's arrange for GOPe strongholds to get their fair share via refugee resettlement nonprofits of our own. Its good politics. And yes, I despise Paul Ryan, who has a wall around his house, and kids in private schools, yet wants everyone else soaked in Sharia.

BLM is a direct political leadership alternative to the entire Congressional Black delegation, city mayors, etc. The methods will range from buying off some leaders with government jobs to wiretapping which is what the FBI did to OWS organizers even before the first occupation.

    Trump supporters need to face the fact that he is a guy who has a good issue set but is not a good candidate. Usually guys like that get weeded out in the primaries -- guys like Herman Cain (somewhat different set of issues). Trump got through because he was speaking about important things that were mostly unspoken by other candidates. He might get lucky and have Julian Assange save him but he is drowning in his own verbal diarrhea. He has way too much in common with Sarah Palin.

    It's true that the left has control of almost all the commanding heights of the culture. But they got it by a 100-year march through the institutions. Conservatives are looking for a savior, that one guy who is going to turn it all around. That one Supreme Court pick. You can't throw a Hail Mary every play. We need a long series of 4-yard runs off tackle. Conservatives need to go into government at a local level and work their way up. They need to go into the corporations, the media, academia, and everything else. They have to have lots of experience and earn respect. They have to have their own long march.

    Trump had the nomination and an emerging lead to repeatedly piss it away with dumb, petty feuds. This has probably sealed his fate with professional white voters who increasingly view his incompetence in the post-convention campaign as a likely indicator of his presidency. Most know from their own professional lives when a person repeatedly screws up like this on the job, they are fired. Suspect they are much less forgiving of the president, particularly when the candidate is running on a message of competence.

    Had Trump been smart, he would have responded by gushing effusively about the young Khan's bravery and selflessness, followed by pointing out that the number of American soldiers that have been killed by Muslim American soldiers is higher than the number of Muslim American soldiers killed in combat. He would then have pointed out that the Iraq war was criminal and foolish and that Khan lost his life for less than nothing. Commenting about Mrs. Khan was just stupid. But Trump is apparently incapable of not saying stupid things.

    Agreed. The "Sister Souljah" bit was and attempt by Bubba to try to convince the voters whose grandpappy was a New Deal Democrat that he was just a good ol' Arkansas white boy jes' like them. It was a con, of course, but that was 25 years ago when the remnants of the white working class was still a political force, and Clinton needed their votes.

    Today, the Democratic Party is the explicitly anti-white, anti-male, anti-hetero party. Hillary would probably stand to gain more votes within her base by supporting a Sister Souljah-type today than by criticizing her.

    “Today, the Democratic Party is….explicitly anti-white, anti-male, anti-hetero…” If that were true, how could they win any elections? A slight majority of whites are female and 95% of all races and both sexes are heterosexual. “Explicitly anti-male”? If that were true, everyone would know the truth about black male violence and criminality and black savages and predators would be swiftly and harshly punished rather than systemically and repeatedly coddled. All things considered, black males are the most indulged, by far, of all criminals. If that were true, an inpenetrable wall would have been built long ago on the Mexican border and there would be virtually no illegal or legal immigration from Mexico and Central/South America. If that were true, there would be few if any Muslims in America and virtually no Muslim immigration and no threat of domestic terrorism.

    They focus their fire on the combined group: white, male, hetero.

    In reality the target was always white people but they broke it up into pieces as camouflage and as salami slicing - hence why feminists only care about white male hetero rapists for example.

    When the time comes and they don't need them any more white females and homosexuals will be thrown under the bus also. They already have been in blue collar areas.

  81. I don’t see how Hillary can or would have a Sister Soujah moment, now or ever.

    Her commitment to BLM and what it stands for is akin to her commitment to amnesty, unending immigration, acceptance of the “refugees”, and the “Dreamers”: a matter now of established dogma/religion which it is unthinkable to breach.

    I don’t see Hillary as being much different from Merkel: as rigid on points of official religion as has been true of the pious across history. I think there a lot more women like this than men, which is why the most devout parishioners, the ones who, say, show up for Mass every day, are far more frequently women than men. Men, on average, give logic and evidence considerably more weight and are less attached to dogma qua dogma. Women tend to feel their way to belief, to be rigid in their commitment, and to punish dissenters more readily and, generally, more severely. (This is the sort of behavior one sees most transparently among feminists–and there is a huge number of feminists. I can’t think of a like movement among men that approaches the same number.)

    One will notice that Bill Clinton has been far more prone to going off the reservation on BLM. One might explain that in a variety of ways, but I think an important component is that, as an intelligent man — if generally a cynically calculating one — the pure bullshit of it is sometimes too much to take.

    I really doubt that Hillary even perceives the bullshit. She takes the bullshit as coming from somewhere on high, and therefore unquestionable. She was, for example, convinced — probably by that preachy moron Samantha Power — that Arab Spring was coming, that Qaddafi was an Evil Man who had to be killed, that Assad was an Evil Man who had to be deposed. In the grip of this mindset, Hillary stuck to her guns in pursuit of her idea of Righteousness. At least one sign of her fundamental sociopathy in pursuit of Right was that in infamous video in which she joked around about killing Qaddafi. I wonder if to this day she has any real belief that what she did in the ME was a mistake, other than a political one.

    More than anything else, what I fear in Hillary is more of the same rigidity and perverse adherence to ideology over any other consideration. Merkel is a good example of how that can turn out, and I see Hillary as coming from the same mold.

    Candid, this is very apt--observable truths stated very clearly.

    The sexes have different mentalities. It isn't a one way street. Women are general practicable about everyday stuff for their families, when guys can be dreamy, goofy.

    I think the basic break is just about basic male\female dichotomy, creativity vs. conformity. Guys are actually more ideological. They are the ones who dream up--often crazy--shit. (Ex. Mao.) But the flip side of that is women are much more conforming, rigid and bureaucratic. (You don't want to deal with a woman if you have to work around a problem in a bureaucracy.) When they've imbibed a religion, they are the "true believers". And if you're in a situation--as we are today--where the "received wisdom" is complete b.s. it is women who will be lapping it up, parroting it, and punishing bad thought thinkers. Men are much more willing to see contrary evidence and give their own reasoning ability running room.

    Hillary strikes me as a true believer. Does she actually believe the whole BLM line--i'd guess deep down probably not. She's also a very cynical politician with extreme will to power. But i think she does fundamentally believe all the crap about oppression, and "women and minorities" being "hardest hit" or "oppressed", and "the glass ceiling" and "white men" having too much power, etc. etc. etc. As far as i can tell, her commitment to old fashioned stale pale male stuff like say "liberty" is essentially nonexistent. She knows what's best for you and if she's able would give it to you good and hard.

  83. As for the question of whether Trump has any chance at this point, I think we need to hang fire and wait it out.

    Hillary is obviously winning the fake news, but Trump wins the real news. I doubt we’ve seen the end of Milwaukees, or worse, before the election. And we are certain to see more Orlandos and Nices — the only question is whether they occur before, or after, the election. I suspect the jihadists would just love to get the extra attention that comes with the election season, and would love the possibility of having an impact on that election (even at the expense of getting in someone who would seem powerfully to oppose them).

    And there is finally, and with the greatest likelihood, the possibility that WikiLeaks will dump a bunch of documents that will be very destructive to the demonstrably very vulnerable Hillary. The email thing hurt her badly at the time. More of the same and worse of the same will not fail to bring down her numbers.

  84. @candid_observer
    I don't see how Hillary can or would have a Sister Soujah moment, now or ever.

    Her commitment to BLM and what it stands for is akin to her commitment to amnesty, unending immigration, acceptance of the "refugees", and the "Dreamers": a matter now of established dogma/religion which it is unthinkable to breach.

    I don't see Hillary as being much different from Merkel: as rigid on points of official religion as has been true of the pious across history. I think there a lot more women like this than men, which is why the most devout parishioners, the ones who, say, show up for Mass every day, are far more frequently women than men. Men, on average, give logic and evidence considerably more weight and are less attached to dogma qua dogma. Women tend to feel their way to belief, to be rigid in their commitment, and to punish dissenters more readily and, generally, more severely. (This is the sort of behavior one sees most transparently among feminists--and there is a huge number of feminists. I can't think of a like movement among men that approaches the same number.)

    One will notice that Bill Clinton has been far more prone to going off the reservation on BLM. One might explain that in a variety of ways, but I think an important component is that, as an intelligent man -- if generally a cynically calculating one -- the pure bullshit of it is sometimes too much to take.

    I really doubt that Hillary even perceives the bullshit. She takes the bullshit as coming from somewhere on high, and therefore unquestionable. She was, for example, convinced -- probably by that preachy moron Samantha Power -- that Arab Spring was coming, that Qaddafi was an Evil Man who had to be killed, that Assad was an Evil Man who had to be deposed. In the grip of this mindset, Hillary stuck to her guns in pursuit of her idea of Righteousness. At least one sign of her fundamental sociopathy in pursuit of Right was that in infamous video in which she joked around about killing Qaddafi. I wonder if to this day she has any real belief that what she did in the ME was a mistake, other than a political one.

    More than anything else, what I fear in Hillary is more of the same rigidity and perverse adherence to ideology over any other consideration. Merkel is a good example of how that can turn out, and I see Hillary as coming from the same mold.

    One of Trump’s biggest problems as a candidate is that he’s pretty old. He was much sharper earlier on in the campaign in terms of picking his fights and dealing with the media, and was often able to work the 24 hour news cycle to his advantage with strategically timed endorsements and the like, but has stumbled more recently into no-win fights that have not been defused. Unlike Hillary, he has little friendly media and no handlers to shelter him from his missteps, and hasn’t really had the stamina to maintain his war with the media. Hillary can’t really campaign that well either but hasn’t had to.

    We are living in the age of Peak Old. Old people acting like teenagers are wildly celebrated and pampered.

    The canonical rock star is 73 and just knocked up a 29 year old ballerina. Marry her? Heavens no. He and his band, including a 72 year old guitarist who has been on the top of the Dead Pool list going on fifty years and looks to be at least 115 (the last WW1 vet looked younger right before he died at that age) grossed >$400,000,000 in the last six or seven years on tour alone.

    Lesser such entertainers are going out of their way to keep up. There is, for instance, the punk princess in her seventies putting out EDM-flavored tracks about the joys of fucking on commercial jets and her main rival (a mere kid, mind you, at 64) just put out "her first solo album", which I have to admit is pretty good. No one laughs at any of this.

    To be considered actually old, you have to be, I think, about 90, like the veteran crooner who is working on his second album with teen queen Lady Gaga-er, she's 30, which is the new 15. Or the actor (who famously boffed the aforementioned punk princess after she did a song about him) who is working his ass off these days.

    I'd personally be willing to let the Buchanan wing drive. It absolutely does deserve to have more meaningful participation in our political culture than its had recently. And if I do end up voting for Trump, that'll be why.

    That said, to invest its hopes in Donald Trump is a horrible strategic choice. There's going to be some resistance to the Buchanan wing in any event, but much less than you suppose. There's yuuuge resistance to Donald Trump. And the worse news for Buchananites, it's not over when he loses (and to some extent even if he wins). Everything the Buchananites want will descredited through association with Trump, just as it was for W during the last part of his Administration and the first part of the Obama Administration.

I wonder if to this day she has any real belief that what she did in the ME was a mistake, other than a political one.

    More than anything else, what I fear in Hillary is more of the same rigidity and perverse adherence to ideology over any other consideration. Merkel is a good example of how that can turn out, and I see Hillary as coming from the same mold.

    Replies: @Whiskey, @AnotherDad, @Lurker

    I don’t see Hillary as being much different from Merkel: as rigid on points of official religion as has been true of the pious across history. I think there a lot more women like this than men, which is why the most devout parishioners, the ones who, say, show up for Mass every day, are far more frequently women than men. Men, on average, give logic and evidence considerably more weight and are less attached to dogma qua dogma. Women tend to feel their way to belief, to be rigid in their commitment, and to punish dissenters more readily and, generally, more severely…

    Candid, this is very apt–observable truths stated very clearly.

    The sexes have different mentalities. It isn’t a one way street. Women are general practicable about everyday stuff for their families, when guys can be dreamy, goofy.

    I think the basic break is just about basic male\female dichotomy, creativity vs. conformity. Guys are actually more ideological. They are the ones who dream up–often crazy–shit. (Ex. Mao.) But the flip side of that is women are much more conforming, rigid and bureaucratic. (You don’t want to deal with a woman if you have to work around a problem in a bureaucracy.) When they’ve imbibed a religion, they are the “true believers”. And if you’re in a situation–as we are today–where the “received wisdom” is complete b.s. it is women who will be lapping it up, parroting it, and punishing bad thought thinkers. Men are much more willing to see contrary evidence and give their own reasoning ability running room.

    Hillary strikes me as a true believer. Does she actually believe the whole BLM line–i’d guess deep down probably not. She’s also a very cynical politician with extreme will to power. But i think she does fundamentally believe all the crap about oppression, and “women and minorities” being “hardest hit” or “oppressed”, and “the glass ceiling” and “white men” having too much power, etc. etc. etc. As far as i can tell, her commitment to old fashioned stale pale male stuff like say “liberty” is essentially nonexistent. She knows what’s best for you and if she’s able would give it to you good and hard.

    Even I sometimes lose sight of the fact that, on average, women think about political and other issues quite differently from men.

    The sort of logic and rationality that makes for a good scientist or engineer is obviously found more often in men than women. But that trait doesn't show up just in the exercise of technical skills -- it pervades all other thinking as well.

    It's often noted that even in academe, the more technical disciplines tend to be a lot less left wing. What isn't often mentioned is the obvious correlation: that these far more conservative professors are also overwhelmingly men, and that the opposite is true of the far left social sciences (except for economics, of course -- also overwhelmingly men) and the humanities.

    I have to suspect that a good part of the current abandoning of all journalistic principles by our current media, especially as it pertains to Trump, is driven by the far greater number of women in the media than in times past. Look at the Times -- the political editor is a Carolyn Ryan, and the major reporter on Trump is Maggie Haberman. I'm sure they have considerable verbal fluency and so do a good job seeming as if they must be good writers and therefore journalists. But do they really grasp in a basic way logic and evidence and balance? Even in law school, an entirely verbal domain, women do far less well than men at the upper ends, as made evident by their relatively poor performance on the LSAT in the highest percentiles. Their placement in many of the most prominent positions in journalism is bound to corrupt the standards of the discipline. And this is especially so since what supplants the rationality of the past is the raw emotionality of many of these women.

    One of Trump's biggest problems as a candidate is that he's pretty old. He was much sharper earlier on in the campaign in terms of picking his fights and dealing with the media, and was often able to work the 24 hour news cycle to his advantage with strategically timed endorsements and the like, but has stumbled more recently into no-win fights that have not been defused. Unlike Hillary, he has little friendly media and no handlers to shelter him from his missteps, and hasn't really had the stamina to maintain his war with the media. Hillary can't really campaign that well either but hasn't had to.

    America has a huge orgasm and boner right now for a first woman president.
     
    Jefferson, i think that's overstating it. Hillary is in the lead--no surprise. I've said two things from the beginning of this cycle
    1) The Repubs would not nominate JEB--the base is more small "r", republican, not royalist.
    2) Hillary is the clear favorite, but has high negatives and is beatable.

    America doesn't have a stiffy for Hillary--except for some number of women "of a certain age". (If it weren't for all the other racial and religious pampered groups, American women would be the most indulged and pampered people on the planet and yet managed to feel put upon.) Rather Hillary is on top, despite America not liking or trusting her.

    I really admire Trump, taking on the role of the nationalist candidate--the only even semi-nationalist (major party) we've had since Reagan--at the cost of a lot of scummy abuse and lost business opportunities. However, the dude does seem--for a hugely successful guy--to have some ego issues, and tends to divert attention to personal whiny crap and have a hard time getting out of his own way.

    I think his last chance is in the debates. Hillary's program of open immigration--amnesty, non-enforcement, "invite the world" on steroids--is simply incompatible with improvement in working and middle class Americans employment and income. Rather it's a recipe for more unemployment, wage stagnation and rising inequality. Trump needs to make this brutally clear and nail Hillary to the wall with it. Then he's got a shot. If he doesn't it's done. (And we're on to the discussion of survival post-Trump.)

    I dislike troop worship as much as anyone else, but it is among the most powerful forces in our society. Pakistani Muslim or not, to the vast majority of Americans, the Khan family experienced a loss that gives them an incredible deal of moral capital.

    Had Trump been smart, he would have responded by gushing effusively about the young Khan’s bravery and selflessness, followed by pointing out that the number of American soldiers that have been killed by Muslim American soldiers is higher than the number of Muslim American soldiers killed in combat. He would then have pointed out that the Iraq war was criminal and foolish and that Khan lost his life for less than nothing. Commenting about Mrs. Khan was just stupid. But Trump is apparently incapable of not saying stupid things.

    A smart politician is like a skilled judoka. He works with public sentiment, channelling it to attain his goals. Trump did far more damage to himself than he would have even by remaining silent on the Khan speech

    If I was Trump I would have either completely ignored the Kahns or have invited Mr. Kahn to have a conversation/debate. Along with everything you mentioned, I would ask him in a calm and polite matter:

    Why he is supporting a woman who was for the Iraq War and had a role in various military interventions throughout the Middle East? Why support someone who will escalate the conflict further? Will that not lead to more Muslims dying? More U.S. soldiers dying?

    Why is a fallen U.S. Muslim soldier being glorified by the Democrats while ignoring the various fallen soldiers of other religious beliefs? Why should his death in a war that happened more than 10 years ago affect a complex issue such as immigration policy? What does this have to do with a border wall?

    Does his occupation of being a immigration attorney who gives preference to Muslims influencing his dislike of Trump? Why did Kahn delete his law firm's web site? Is it because he might have supported Sharia law? Doesn't that contradict his support of the Constitution?

    Recall that Kahn said this:
    “This is why I showed him (the) Constitution. Had he read that, he would know the status a Gold Star mother holds in this nation.”

    Where is subject of Gold Star parents mentioned within the Constitution? Does he believe that Gold Star parent has the privilege of being exempt from criticism? Trump can add a little stinger by showing off his own Constitution booklet and saying "I can't find it here. Please show me."

    Trump can respond to Kahn's accusations by stating that this is about radical Islamic terrorism and he is trying to save lives. The 9/11 attacks, the Orlando Massacre, the Paris shooting, etc. all these events have forced him to take strong measures. Hillary is not.

    Those are just my thoughts though. He could still do this. Hell, he could ask to meet with Mrs. Kahn and assure her that he meant no disrespect. He can say that he just wanted to hear her side of the story in the convention.

    I have to suspect that a good part of the current abandoning of all journalistic principles by our current media, especially as it pertains to Trump, is driven by the far greater number of women in the media than in times past. Look at the Times — the political editor is a Carolyn Ryan, and the major reporter on Trump is Maggie Haberman. I’m sure they have considerable verbal fluency and so do a good job seeming as if they must be good writers and therefore journalists. But do they really grasp in a basic way logic and evidence and balance? Even in law school, an entirely verbal domain, women do far less well than men at the upper ends, as made evident by their relatively poor performance on the LSAT in the highest percentiles. Their placement in many of the most prominent positions in journalism is bound to corrupt the standards of the discipline.

    I don't see how Hillary can or would have a Sister Soujah moment, now or ever.

    Her commitment to BLM and what it stands for is akin to her commitment to amnesty, unending immigration, acceptance of the "refugees", and the "Dreamers": a matter now of established dogma/religion which it is unthinkable to breach.

    I don't see Hillary as being much different from Merkel: as rigid on points of official religion as has been true of the pious across history. I think there a lot more women like this than men, which is why the most devout parishioners, the ones who, say, show up for Mass every day, are far more frequently women than men. Men, on average, give logic and evidence considerably more weight and are less attached to dogma qua dogma. Women tend to feel their way to belief, to be rigid in their commitment, and to punish dissenters more readily and, generally, more severely. (This is the sort of behavior one sees most transparently among feminists--and there is a huge number of feminists. I can't think of a like movement among men that approaches the same number.)

    One will notice that Bill Clinton has been far more prone to going off the reservation on BLM. One might explain that in a variety of ways, but I think an important component is that, as an intelligent man -- if generally a cynically calculating one -- the pure bullshit of it is sometimes too much to take.

    I really doubt that Hillary even perceives the bullshit. She takes the bullshit as coming from somewhere on high, and therefore unquestionable. She was, for example, convinced -- probably by that preachy moron Samantha Power -- that Arab Spring was coming, that Qaddafi was an Evil Man who had to be killed, that Assad was an Evil Man who had to be deposed. In the grip of this mindset, Hillary stuck to her guns in pursuit of her idea of Righteousness. At least one sign of her fundamental sociopathy in pursuit of Right was that in infamous video in which she joked around about killing Qaddafi. I wonder if to this day she has any real belief that what she did in the ME was a mistake, other than a political one.

    More than anything else, what I fear in Hillary is more of the same rigidity and perverse adherence to ideology over any other consideration. Merkel is a good example of how that can turn out, and I see Hillary as coming from the same mold.

    Had Trump been smart, he would have responded by gushing effusively about the young Khan's bravery and selflessness, followed by pointing out that the number of American soldiers that have been killed by Muslim American soldiers is higher than the number of Muslim American soldiers killed in combat. He would then have pointed out that the Iraq war was criminal and foolish and that Khan lost his life for less than nothing. Commenting about Mrs. Khan was just stupid. But Trump is apparently incapable of not saying stupid things.

    A smart politician is like a skilled judoka. He works with public sentiment, channelling it to attain his goals. Trump did far more damage to himself than he would have even by remaining silent on the Khan speech

    If I was Trump I would have either completely ignored the Kahns or have invited Mr. Kahn to have a conversation/debate. Along with everything you mentioned, I would ask him in a calm and polite matter:

    Why he is supporting a woman who was for the Iraq War and had a role in various military interventions throughout the Middle East? Why support someone who will escalate the conflict further? Will that not lead to more Muslims dying? More U.S. soldiers dying?

    Why is a fallen U.S. Muslim soldier being glorified by the Democrats while ignoring the various fallen soldiers of other religious beliefs? Why should his death in a war that happened more than 10 years ago affect a complex issue such as immigration policy? What does this have to do with a border wall?

    Does his occupation of being a immigration attorney who gives preference to Muslims influencing his dislike of Trump? Why did Kahn delete his law firm’s web site? Is it because he might have supported Sharia law? Doesn’t that contradict his support of the Constitution?

    Recall that Kahn said this:
    “This is why I showed him (the) Constitution. Had he read that, he would know the status a Gold Star mother holds in this nation.”

    Where is subject of Gold Star parents mentioned within the Constitution? Does he believe that Gold Star parent has the privilege of being exempt from criticism? Trump can add a little stinger by showing off his own Constitution booklet and saying “I can’t find it here. Please show me.”

    Trump can respond to Kahn’s accusations by stating that this is about radical Islamic terrorism and he is trying to save lives. The 9/11 attacks, the Orlando Massacre, the Paris shooting, etc. all these events have forced him to take strong measures. Hillary is not.

    Those are just my thoughts though. He could still do this. Hell, he could ask to meet with Mrs. Kahn and assure her that he meant no disrespect. He can say that he just wanted to hear her side of the story in the convention.

    Trump gave a speech today about this. I didn't see or hear the delivery, but I did read the transcript and on that basis at least the speech was excellent.

    No bluster, bullshit or bragging about how great Donald Trump is. But did hit on important themes, concretely, such as terrorism, immigration, Islam, past wars and future military interventions. Best of all, at least for me, is that he tied them all in a coherent way that people could actually imagine that they're voting for.

    His website positions and his scripted speeches were written by smart men his campaign hired. I doubt Trump could accurately paraphrase even half of what's written in them, and he obviously could not discuss them in depth on his own. If you think he is a smart man or qualified to be president, them the most charitable interpretation of that is that you think you know more about him than you actually do.

    Replies: @Boethiuss

    At the very least, let’s hope that he learned his owned speech from today as he read it. It’s easy not to know the words somebody else could have put on his website, but it’s harder not to know the words you are directly speaking.

    Even I sometimes lose sight of the fact that, on average, women think about political and other issues quite differently from men.

    The sort of logic and rationality that makes for a good scientist or engineer is obviously found more often in men than women. But that trait doesn't show up just in the exercise of technical skills -- it pervades all other thinking as well.

    It's often noted that even in academe, the more technical disciplines tend to be a lot less left wing. What isn't often mentioned is the obvious correlation: that these far more conservative professors are also overwhelmingly men, and that the opposite is true of the far left social sciences (except for economics, of course -- also overwhelmingly men) and the humanities.

    I have to suspect that a good part of the current abandoning of all journalistic principles by our current media, especially as it pertains to Trump, is driven by the far greater number of women in the media than in times past. Look at the Times -- the political editor is a Carolyn Ryan, and the major reporter on Trump is Maggie Haberman. I'm sure they have considerable verbal fluency and so do a good job seeming as if they must be good writers and therefore journalists. But do they really grasp in a basic way logic and evidence and balance? Even in law school, an entirely verbal domain, women do far less well than men at the upper ends, as made evident by their relatively poor performance on the LSAT in the highest percentiles. Their placement in many of the most prominent positions in journalism is bound to corrupt the standards of the discipline. And this is especially so since what supplants the rationality of the past is the raw emotionality of many of these women.

    Obama did not literally create ISIS. Even Trump backed down from his statement and called it sarcastic.

    Hilary and Bill, yeah they've had a part in all of this. But it's been US foreign policy since Reagan to throw money at random nuts in the middle east for temporary gain.

    The fact that we have to constantly qualify his statements for him is tiring. Trump is saying stupid shit 70% of the time, he refuses to qualify any of statements.

    The only thing going for Trump is that Hilary Clinton is the Dem nominee.

    Every time you get a little comfortable supporting Trump he comes out with stupid shit like supporting torture.

    Your dad wants someone respectable to lead the nation, someone with some minor restraint, he hasn't broken down to the whole "ends justify the means" point yet.

    It's unfortunate Trump is the best candidate for alt-right beliefs, if he fucks up it's going set everything back for good.
