Nervous Democrats ask: Could
Election Day disaster strike again?

McClatchy Newspapers, by Alex Roarty

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/10/2018 4:03:01 PM

It was this week two years ago that Hillary Clinton’s victory looked assured, when the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexual assault appeared all but certain to end his campaign. Jesse Ferguson remembers it well. The deputy press secretary for Clinton’s campaign also remembers what happened a month later. It’s why this veteran Democratic operative can’t shake the feeling that, as promising as the next election looks for his party, it might still all turn out wrong.

Go back to sleep. It is going to be a massive blue wave. Trust Nancy Pelosi on this. Advice for liberals: don´t even vote because it is already in the bag.

The LEFT´s mob violence will ensure a blue wave. Just keep up the harassment, screaming, threats, and violence. Block roads, scare people, get in their faces, and make sure that you promise impeachment and investigations. Go to it. Remember, NO CIVILITY ! is the agenda for success.

Democrat "ground game" is what you call the signs in nursing home elevators urging residents to get absentee ballots in order to vote...WHO is going to help those seniors COMPLETE those ballots? Republicans have to get 2 real voters to the polls EVERYWHERE just to make up for Democrat fraud...

Qwiet. Dems are hunting wabbits.

"Trump is unpopular and beset by scandal, Democrats hold leads in the polls, and some Republicans are openly pessimistic."

Trump is FAR more strongly popular than he was and somewhat more broadly, especially in some traditional dem groups.

Polls? Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!!!!

Republicans are pessimistic because many of them STILL are uncomfortable winning. They actually believe the things in the media and the polls.

While I want us to win, perhaps as much I want to see dems go through the losing process again. The ennui after 2016 was very entertaining. It also led to the crazy part of the party coming forward. The more crazy they get the better Trump seems by comparison. They are throwing away the only issue they get some traction on with moderates.

Dead voters and illegal aliens comprise a large part of the predicted blue wave, along with the bus loads of liberal cupcakes moving from poll to poll to vote. If they can, they will cheat. And if they win, our country will either turn into Venezuela or a civil war will break out. They MUST be defeated and their leaders sent to jail.

And for the record, Donald Trump was NOT "bragging about sexual assault" on the NBC tape, he said that women let him....., i.e. it was not assault. This is another echo chamber lie that has been ground into the national memory through repetition by the dishonest msm.

CNN has a meltdown when the word "mob" is used to describe democrats. So lets just reverse the spelling...Instead of "mob" we have "bom" or "bomb" is the preferred spelling. So in describing dems instead of "Mob Rules" we we have "Bom Rules" or "Bomb Rules". They are practically the same thing anyway. Now us WalMart shoppers are hip and politically correct.

#20, the indicator for prepping for a loss is when they start crowing about some type of cheating...look for that soon.
I refuse to believe the upper staff at both parties don´t already have a clear picture of the polls. Given I don´t put much faith in them it might just be the way numbers are presented to the hoi poi. What each party has to do now is energize the bases or minimize the opponent. Ignore the man behind the curtain..he´s just a distraction.

Apparently 38% of African Americans now have a favorable view of President Trump.

This is an extraordinary change for ANY Republican President and if true (and it certainly seems possible given the jobs picture and the appealing Dragon Energy) then the Democrats are completely done as a national party: extremely angry irrational middle-aged feminist manhaters who are trying to sort out the cognitive dissonance of what the “sexual liberation” of the 1960s and 1970s has done to ALL of us by having a public nervous breakdown, beta-male college professors and Hollywood types, and Muslims would then be the core of the Democrat base and THAT particular coalition will last approximately another 5 minutes and then collapse under its own logical impossibilities.

I think we’re roughly equivalent to the point in 2016 when Shrillary saw the writing on the wall and cancelled the celebratory fireworks a few days before November 6.

President Trump did not brag about sexual assault (for the thousandth time) in the Access Hollywood tape. He commented that women would let rich and famous men use them sexually. A fact that everybody knows is true. The women voluntarily (and aggressively) put themselves in the company of powerful men. Every hear of Gold Diggers?

Geeez. Now the left have turned in to puritans who are shocked, shocked they tell us, to hear such things are going on.

Bernie Madoff’s Legacy: Whistleblower Inc.
Wall Street Journal, by Gregory Zuckerman and Dave Michaels    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 12/8/2018 10:11:03     Post Reply
Ten years ago, Bernard Madoff’s multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, the biggest fraud in U.S. history, shocked the financial world. It soon emerged that a forensic accountant, Harry Markopolos, had been alerting regulators for years to Mr. Madoff’s fraud, but no one had listened. At Mr. Markopolos’s urging, the Securities and Exchange Commission created a cash-for-tips program, designed to encourage reports of financial wrongdoing and prevent the lapses in oversight that gave Mr. Madoff free rein. Today, an entire industry is devoted to surfacing tips from company insiders and expert analysts who scrutinize corporate filings.

George H.W. Bush wasn’t born in Texas, as the saying goes, but he got here as soon as he graduated from Yale. Over the next seven decades, he left an imprint on the Lone Star State that is matched by only a few. His legacy, however, may be defined as much by his quiet acts of generosity as by any grandiose act of statesmanship. Here, five Texans reflect on the man they once knew.

Robert Mueller looks to be approaching his endgame, and the press is alive with speculation as to how bad the special counsel’s report will be for President Trump. It’s also worth noticing how good Mr. Mueller has been to another president, Barack Obama, and his team. This benevolence was on display in the sentencing document the special counsel’s office filed on Tuesday for Mike Flynn. The former Trump national security adviser, we are told, has provided “substantial assistance,” sitting for 19 interviews that aided in “several ongoing investigations.” In light of this help, the Mueller team

Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have called out the pair. “I think the Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State are in a bad spot because the president has given this bear hug to MBS and to the entire Saudi regime, so they are bound to carry out his bizarre policy,” Murphy said during a “Morning Joe” interview.

The Global Carbon Tax Revolt

France’s violent Yellow Vest protests are now about many domestic concerns, but it’s no accident that the trigger was a fuel-tax hike. Nothing reveals the disconnect between ordinary voters and an aloof political class more than carbon taxation. The fault line runs between anti-carbon policies and economic growth, and France is a test for the political future of emissions restrictions. France already is a relatively low-carbon economy, with per-capita emissions half Germany’s as of 2014. French governments have nonetheless pursued an “ecological transition” to further squeeze carbon emissions from every corner

Attorneys for President Trump asked a court Monday for nearly $800,000 in lawyers’ fees and penalties from adult-film actress Stormy Daniels for the failed defamation lawsuit against him. Attorney Charles Harder defended more than 500 hours his firm spent that rang up a nearly $390,000 legal bill for the president and asked for an equal amount in sanctions as a deterrent against a “repeat filer or frivolous defamation cases.” Harder said the fees and penalties were earned because of the extraordinary nature of the defamation case.

NeverTrump Clings To Russia Collusion

The NeverTrump movement has gone from pushing allegations that Donald Trump treasonously colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election from its rightful owner Hillary Clinton, to pretending that his attempts at business deals in Russia, which were legal and the subject of widespread reporting during the election, are evidence of unspecified crimes. The main barrier to the Russia-Trump collusion theory — an information operation that was secretly bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, spread by a compliant media, and weaponized by the highest levels of federal agencies —

The defeat of the audit wouldn’t be so galling if the new bonds didn’t so obviously demonstrate the need for an independent review of Austin’s books.

The committee was scheduled to meet Thursday to move some 20 judicial nominees. But Mr. Flake has said he will block all judicial nominees until he receives a vote on a bill that would insulate Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation from normal political accountability.
