Late in the week, before the Democratic National Convention, WikiLeaks released copies of hacked Democratic National Committee emails reconfirming that key Committee staff members actively worked to assure Hillary was the Democrat nominee (isn’t attempting to rig an election a Federal crime?). Due to the size of the document release analyst believe more damaging information will be discovered over the next few days.
The day before “day one” of the Democratic National Convention (DNC), disaster strikes as information about the Democratic National Committee’s activities become “news” with some media. Turmoil erupts inside and outside the convention hall. The number of protesters increase and they become loud outside the convention hall and Debbie Wasserman Shultz is pressured to resign as Democratic National Committee chair. She agrees to resign after the convention and will only officially open and close the convention. Hillary blames the problems on Russian hackers, ignoring the criminal actions of the Democratic National Committee staff. Hillary also claims in a TV interview that she had no knowledge of the Committee staff’s efforts to rig the primary election for her. Hillary publicly announces her support for Shultz and then doubles down by announcing that she has hired Shultz to be co-chair of her national campaign.
Two new polls show Trump taking a noticeable lead over Hillary.
Day one, before the convention opens, the protests get bigger and louder outside the convention hall and Shultz is booed off the stage at a breakfast meeting with her home state delegation! Shultz is forced to totally withdraw from any role in the convention. Clinton campaign spokesman attempts to ”spin” the committee staffers actions in TV interviews by only talking about the alleged source of the released emails being Russian. WikiLeaks announces it will release more hacked emails before the general election, including some from Hillary’s PRIVATE SERVER! The protest outside the convention hall get bigger and louder by the hour and the Democrats doing interviews inside the convention hall continue to “foolishly” ignore the turmoil all around them while trying to “spin” what a great convention theirs will be, as opposed to how bad the Republican convention was. Classic example was Juan Williams on the “Five” loudly declaring how “disastrous” the RNC was. For many years now I have been constantly amazed at how resolute the people speaking for the Democrats are at sticking to the Democratic talking points for the day. It does not appear that everyone is buying the “spin”, including some of the media that usually goes out of their way to support Hillary. The Democratic National Committee is totally silent. The DNC attempts to officially open with loud shouting matches happening between various factions. Some speakers, like Senator Warren were booed and heckled as they spoke. It looks like it is going to be a rough week for Hillary and the Democrats, especially the Democrats supporting Hillary.
Day two of the DNC starts off like day one. Bernie and Hillary supporters engage in another shouting match at a breakfast meeting and the protestors outside are still active and loud. The fence around the convention center has to be reinforced due to protestors climbing it. Bernie supporters still refuse to endorse Hillary and are still trying to replace her. Even though Hillary gave BLM representatives speaking slots at the DNC a BLM protest march is happening outside the convention hall with a “Hillary Delete Yourself” banner carried in the front row of marchers. Newly released emails show that Shultz’s replacement, Donna Brazile (one of the most racially divisive women to ever sit before a TV camera, for years on the Sunday morning show “Georgia Gang”) was also critical of Bernie. Hillary is officially “coronated”. A large number of Bernie supporters leave the convention hall and join the protestors outside the hall. BLM protest outside the convention hall are also getting bigger and louder. A BLM protest leader orders all white people to the back of the group and says, “This is a black and brown movement”. Bernie supporters burn an American flag outside the convention hall. Geraldo Rivera is surrounded, verbally abused, doused with water from behind and physically removed from a BLM protest by a very large black man. I still do not see any American flags in the convention hall? The Democrats and main stream media still claim that the “RNC was a disaster”.
Day 3 at the DNC. Trump holds a morning press conference ,no prepared notes, no questions off limits in Miami. During the press conference he challenges the media to get Hillary to do a press conference. She has not held a press conference since December 2015, and that one was scripted and controlled. He also made a joke about Russia finding Hillary’s missing 30,000 emails. To quote Charles Krauthammer this was a neat trap that the Hillary campaign immediately fell into, followed immediately by most of the “main stream” media. They foolishly continued to try and “spin” the allegation that it was the Russians who hacked the systems, while trying to ignore what was in the released documents. And then they really “took the Trump bait” and began to accuse Trump of creating a national security issue by encouraging a foreign power to hack into systems that had sensitive documents in them (confirming that Hillary improperly stored and transmitted sensitive national security documents?).
Apparently the DNC has now been publicly called out enough on the internet to force them to put two American flags in the convention hall. New reports say that the Democratic National Committee staff that tried to rig the election for Hillary violated campaign finance laws. Jill Stein visits the DNC and talks to Bernie supporters (Her party will influence the General Election). More leaked emails and voice mail recordings confirm that the DNC controlled access to Obama, Hillary and other top Democrats based on how much money donors raised/donated. Pepper spray is used on protestors trying to scale the convention hall fence. Protestors use bolt cutters to force access to a secure area inside the fence with some being arrested by the Secret Service. A protestor stomping on a burning U.S. flag catches their clothes on fire and is burned bad enough to require hospitalization. There is still no mention of ISIS. Complaints from residents in the convention hall area about, noise, trash, vandalism, illegal camping, nudity and other crud behavior by the protestors are increasing daily.
Nancy Pelosi makes her ridiculous “GGG” (God Guns and Gays) statement on live TV and repeats it again later that afternoon. She said that the reason Hillary has a problem with the white male vote is because, “uneducated white males in America vote against their own economic good because of their feelings about “God, Guns and Gays”.
Leon Pennetta’s speech backfires while he tries to promote Hillary’s ability to handle all the problems in the world. As he goes through a long list of war torn countries and unstable governments it becomes obvious that Obama’s foreign policies have created a very unstable world, with Hillary’s help for four of his eight years. At one point some state delegations interrupted him with loud chants, “no more wars”.
Bill Clinton almost frantically tried to portray Hillary as the most qualified, successful and accomplished person in history, plus being on a level of care and giving to people that is above and beyond Mother Teresa’s. I wondered what he would do if anyone ask him the simple question that no one else has been able to answer yet, “can you name one positive thing she actually accomplished during her four years as Secretary of State?’.
Bloomberg’s speech is a total Trump attack.
Joe Biden’s entire speech was a Trump attack that should have been beneath the office of Vice President of the United States of America.
When Tim Kaine opened his VP acceptance speech with a “shout out” to his son who just deployed with the Maries the audience was shockingly unresponsive. He used most of the rest of his speech to attack Trump.
Obama repeated what Bill said about Hillary’s extraordinary qualifications and accomplishments, then repeatedly patted himself on the back as he listed each of his administrations remarkable accomplishments (which were not true) and then spent the rest of his speech making ridiculous claims about Trump.
Day 4 of the DNC begins with Rudy Giuliani reporting that uniformed police officers were not allowed inside the convention hall during the convention. This was so unbelievable to him that he spent the last two days investigating and confirming that it was indeed a convention rule. This is textbook Hillary. Just ask any Secret Service agent and they will tell you that getting assigned to Hillary’s detail is actually a form of punishment.
Regarding the uniformed officer ban inside the convention hall, I wrote in one of my articles recently about Hillary changing her position on major issues more often than she changes her pants suits. The night after Giuliani and Fox made the uniformed officer convention hall ban public a woman uniformed officer came to the podium to call for a moment of silence for slain officers. Immediately, during the moment of silence people in the audience began to yell “black lives matter”.
Jesse Waters attempted to interview Convention attendees about their position on “Sanctuary Cites” and “Kate’s Law”. Their behavior and responses were despicable, even though they knew they were on camera.
The high point of day 4 seemed to be Lanny Davis popping up in front of any TV camera or microphone he could find to tell anyone who would listen about how he has known Hillary since law school and what a great, warm, kind, loving, giving person she really is. With all the attack Trump speeches (some of which were actually sophomoric) and Lanny’s last minute efforts to humanize Hillary, it appears that they are worried about her electability.
Clearly the final analysis of this DNC shows that it was undeniably un-patriotic, anti-military, anti-police, with an attack Trump and Republicans theme. It can only be described as unethical and worse, un-American! This convention did not bring the Democratic Party together, much less America.
As noted above Hillary changes her positions on issues more often than she changes her pants suits. “Presto” on the last night of the convention, just before Hillary’s acceptance speech, U.S. Flags, chants of U.S.A., a hero soldiers Muslin parents and a retired Four Star General endorsing Hillary appear at the convention (some in the audience attempted to shout down the General and the veterans on stage with him by chanting, “no more wars”).
Based on what is happening in the Democratic Party, the continued existence of some “never Trump” Republicans, the disenchanted Independents and the surprising number of “New” voters all confirm a rising level of anger in America and a willingness to express it. Turmoil in the U.S. electorate is definitely growing.
History has proven repeatedly that when the level of anger in a population reaches a certain point the population “revolts”. It appears that the “revolution” we are beginning to see will not be a “quiet” one. For many months now, everywhere I go I hear people talk, at times loudly and angrily, about politics. Places like the Gym, Dr. and hospital waiting rooms, the place where the locals stop in the morning for a cup of coffee and a biscuit and at other retail businesses. There has always been some level of political discussion in public places but I have never seen it at this level and certainly not as polarized. Many of these people are unshakable in their beliefs and a surprising number, of all ages insist they are going to vote for the first time in their lives (the blue collar males in this group and their spouse/family members are overwhelmingly Trump supporters). Hopefully this “Revolution” will not involve guns, but I am not sure that will be the case based on the level of anger and volatility I am seeing and hearing every day.
Regarding polls, for many years I have noticed that they have not been accurate. I believe there are two reasons for this. One is that some pollsters deliberately skew the results in an effort to influence an election. The second and main reason they are not accurate is the increasing lack of a reliable list of people to be polled who accurately reflect the voters. This is the result of the rapidly increasing number of voters who no longer have a telephone land line. They use cell phones and many of them use the phones to screen their calls to avoid telemarketers (and pollsters). An increasing number of these people also refuse to join groups like political parties or give out their phone number. There is also an increasing number of people who will not acknowledge who they are supporting politically, or will lie about it to avoid controversy, a risk of being ridiculed by family or friends or possibly being black listed at work. Consequently polls today are a good indicator of trends but they do not accurately predict results. Trump is a good example of this. He got more votes in the Republican primary than any Republican candidate in history, even with 16 qualified opponents initially, some of them staying in the race until late in the primary process, yet the polls have consistently shown him to be losing to Hillary.
When I look at everything that happened this week I am even more convinced that Trump will be President, maybe by a vote in the U.S. House like I wrote about last week. Regardless of what Bernie, Gary Johnson, or Jill Stein do the election will come down to Hillary or Trump and Hillary cannot be President! America is on its last step into Socialism/Communism and there is no doubt that Hillary will take us there. I wrote about this here: http://www.onlymakessense.com/ideology-and-extremism-in-american-politics-today/. In November vote and, like him or not, vote for Trump!
