Trump: I’m running against media, not Clinton

by Harper Neidig | The Hill
August 14, 2016

Donald Trump said Saturday that his true opponent in the general election is the media.

“I’m not running against crooked Hillary, I’m running against the crooked media,” Trump said at a rally in Fairfield, Conn. “That’s what I’m running against, I’m not running against crooked Hillary.”

Trump has repeatedly lashed out at media that he calls “dishonest” over the course of his campaign.

Earlier Saturday, he bashed the New York Times after a report came out in which sources characterized Trump as “sullen” and struggling to recover in light of lagging poll numbers.

He renewed those attacks on the Times at the rally Saturday, saying he’s considering revoking their credentials to cover his rallies.

    The Donald should cut right to the chase – he’s running against Soros’ money.

  • Dan says:

    Donald Trump is absolutely correct. If you can stomach this, do some channel surfing between the various networks, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC and just listen to the moderators, the panels and the topics of discussion. I think you’ll soon agree with Donald.

  • Dolores Adams says:

    The more I read and hear about Hillary Corrupt Clinton, the worse it gets. I sure do pray that she doesn’t get to be president. It could be worse than obummer.

  • RobGoetzSr says:

    Just as Talk Show Host Michael Savage says: “The ‘Fourth Estate’ has become the ‘Fifth Column.” In addition, Mr. Trump has to go into a further explanation of his comments, and not just hurl a blanket statement, lest it be misinterpreted. (deliberately so by the media) However, Trump is right.
    Further, I would question the polls, as to “where” they are being taken and by whom? If you target polls to largely liberal areas, you will obviously receive liberal answers. “Targeted Polling” is intended for one use… to discourage conservative voters from showing-up on election day!

  • rewindpulaski says:

    As they say – “no sh!t Sherlock…” I for one have never seen a press so outwardly bias for one candidate in my 48 years of following elections… The press in our country has turned into nothing more than Pravda and the so called “journalists” (or “reporters”, as they like to be called) are little more than “little Joesphs” (as in Greobbles)… Propagandists all… They are so blinded by their leftist ideology, they really and truly do not see, much less acknowledge, this sickness… Damn them all; damn them all to hell… They are going to kill this country and they don’t care… Thomas Sowell has it right and the voting public better understand this immediately… With Trump and Hillary, you have the difference between Russian Roulette and a Loaded Shotgun held to your head… With one, you pull the trigger, you don’t really know what’s going to happen… With the other, you pull the trigger, you know what’s going to happen and you’re dead – pure and simple… Now which do you consider Trump and which do you consider Hillary.?. Sadly; because it is the better of the two options given, I for one choose roulette… The establishment Repubs and leftist loon Demos and Hillary sycophants have chosen the shotgun…

  • juniemoon says:

    No, no. Trump is running against crooked, not the media. I agree the media is dishonest in their reporting of Trump. There’s no point in attacking media; they will not change. With the exception of Fox, they’re all in for crooked. Trump needs to concentrate on crooked or he’ll lose.

  • exar1 says:

    And of course the media says they are not bias and guess who agrees – that’s right, the Democrats.

  • sox83cubs84 says:

    The liberal media has been in the tank for Democrats for decades, but they have never been as open about it as they are in 2016. I wouldn’t blame Trump one bit for revoking the credentials of the Hillary azz-kissers. Of course, knowing the dishonesty of the liberal media, they’d probably just start making up quotes, and negative ones at that. This is a problem with no easy answer that works.

  • Rosemarie Saccardi says:

    Wake up America the Media is evil they go after Trump and get paid for it they keep replaying terror stories to teach and brain the public
    They are trying to get you to turn against Trump not this time we the people Rule we will come out a drown you in votes We will find a way to make it safe right and pure
    This election is our last chance to save America for now and future generations Stand tall for America and all who DIED GOR HER JOLD TRUMP STEADY THEY WILL NOT TAKE OUR FREEDOM AWAY IT IS OUR TURN TO SAVE AMERICA THE LAND OF THE FREE

  • Omar Billano says:

    If he stops fighting other entities and concentrates on Clinton probably he has a better chance of winning.

  • Mike N says:

    The crooked media is what got him the nomination. Now that he has it he no longer gets the support of the crooked media.

  • nimbii says:

    MSM alleges Trump disses Gold Star family, but where was the coverage when Hillary lied to several Gold Star families and then called them liars when they said she said the video was to blame. Then she goes on to state the same at the mike at the ceremony.

    Several years ago the Pentagon told Obama that his policies would bring rise to an ISIS like organization when Hillary was Sec of State. Where is media on this when Trump said he was the champion of ISIS?

  • Thomas Martin says:

    I flat out hate the bias media, they are as corrupt as the obama’s administration and the clinton’s and they are corrupt and as nasty as can be.

  • Diane Brenner says:

    Our Constitution fully protects the media. However, I know darned well that our founding fathers did that with the understanding that the press was a truthful, responsible, objective depiction of events. I doubt greatly they ever expected, or would accept, the corrupt, dishonest, totally biased press of today. I think it’s time for a few laws to be passed holding the press responsible for what they print.

  • DrBillLemoine says:

    Revoke media credentials–not likely, Donald. That’s the only reason you are in the race at all. Nobody but the 10% of conservatives (I hesitate to call them Republicans or GOP any more) who support you watch Fox (comedy) News and it’s not for women any more with Ailes misogyny resignation. You aren’t running against Hillary who runs policy circles around you daily. Eat your heart out…

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      She’s been blowing smoke up the a$$ of idiots for over 30 years, and they seem to love the smoke, it’s made her rich from the socialist party! Do U have stretch marks from the smoke, your brain is fried!!

      1. DrBillLemoine says:

        You can’t remain in the public eye, with both elected and appointed high offices to your credit, if she’s what you say. Come down off whatever you’re smoking and snorting and plant your feet in reality again. She’s hardly a socialist, struggling now to accommodate Bernie’s supporters moving into progressive territory from her conservative living room. You may be the reason we need a border wall–illegal drug trade.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          The Drugs may be better than the promise of Hellary’s 6 times the muslims promised by Obama, and I hope that you have a boat load in your area! You’ll love your wife and grand kids being raped and beaten and shortly murdered! Just look at Europe, it’s coming, and they don’t like your Kool-Aid!

          1. DrBillLemoine says:

            What is your problem with Muslims? I have multiple clients and friends among the millions of USA citizens and 1.6 billion worldwide. They’re good as you as fellow Americans, maybe better from mindless disconnected people like you. Europe is not the USA.

          2. Rodney Steward says:

            Not yet, it will be with Hellary, she has converted to islam, but claims different so she can run for Prez. like Opey did!

          3. bobnstuff says:

            How’s your math. If we double the Muslim population of our country we will still have about three cops per Muslim. Their vote wouldn’t be enough in a national election to do anything. If you don’t believe me look at the Vietnam voting block, we brought in 1.6 million back in the seventies and you can see just how powerful they are.

          4. Rodney Steward says:

            They were the SOUTH, the ones we were trying to save, and they were glad to come here and have fit in well, and had no intentions of killing the infidels and achieving a twisted caliphate This cult pollutes everything around it and then destroys it!

          5. bobnstuff says:

            How do you tell a South Vietnamese from a North Vietnamese? You can’t anymore then you can tell a Muslim that fought with us in Iraq from those that fought against us. Not all Muslim believe that you should kill infidels in fact most except other faiths. In Islam you are forgive for not knowing Muhammad and even get a tax break.

          6. DrBillLemoine says:

            America is not like Europe with multiple sovereignties eliminating borders and rigid cultures not accepting Muslims. Oops! That’s our far right politicos like you. Hillary–a Muslim! You’re as bad as Trump with the wild accusations; must be a supporter. It’s contagious, I see. Must get my immunization shots, including posting here against the know-nothing do-nothing bunch of bananas. You righties are like a dog with an old bone–growling, biting, never giving it up, even for a better bone (life). Life can get you down; but for God’s sake get up again.

          7. Helland says:

            Bill, that’s just the problem you have. You are disconnected from the reality of islamic intent to live by their “book”…everywhere on earth, including These U.S.A.

          8. DrBillLemoine says:

            Reality is Dearborn, MI being one enclave of Muslims and more patriotic (sad to say) for America than you ever were. You are confusing Muslim nations abroad which combine religion with governance and America that’s different–something you don’t seem to know in the 1st Amendment.

          9. DrBillLemoine says:

            What kind of crap is this:
            WikiIslam does not have an article with the exact name Muslim Statistics – Sha.
            Start the Muslim Statistics – Sha article
            Search for “Muslim Statistics – Sha”?

          10. DrBillLemoine says:

            Your link doesn’t address the article topic or my comments. More smoke and mirrors, deflection and evasion. If you want more of that for national policy, vote Trump. If you want national problems resolved, vote Hillary and downline Democrats. Remember, to live like a republican, vote Democratic.

          11. Helland says:

            It’s there. You might have to actually search the site, but then, you rarely reference actual sites or studies although you seem to require proof of anyone else.

          12. DrBillLemoine says:

            A little free tip from my graduate research class–make a point on the issue/topic and add the link for reference/proof. I’m not here to research and formulate your arguments.

        2. ezekiel22 says:

          You give Christians a real bad name. Tossing false accusations around like confetti dishonnors Jesus and you know it. Mischaracterizing people as you do is the same as lying. Stop associating yourself with the father of lies. You should know better. You are also admonished to be charitable to others and to think of others as better than yourself. Charity does not always mean money.

          1. DrBillLemoine says:

            Did you go to church today and feel holier than thou again? You should stop blaspheming God and deal with reality yourself. I’ve been around drug abusers before. The issue at hand is Trump and media he condemns which again you evade. It’s typical of posters here if you know anything about patterns. Your indefinite antecedents are infuriating and end rational repartee. And you should know ‘charity’ means love biblically.

          2. ezekiel22 says:

            Yes I enjoyed service at church today and everyday. I am not evading anything. I just pointed out your hypocrisy in what you claim and what you say. That is all. The corruption of the media is obvious of that there is no argument. If you paid attention you should see the lives the misinformation of the liberal media has cost.
            Check your Greek/Hebrew lexicon and exegesis concerning the word charity. Paul used the word in more ways than just love. It is worth noting how the modern definition coincides with the ancient meaning. Start using charity properly when dealing with people who disagree with you.
            Trying to charge me with blasphemy without cause or delineation? Trying to make out that you are special and justified because you dealt with addicts? Join the club for Pete’s sakes!

          3. DrBillLemoine says:

            It bears repeating, your poor English leaves this reader in doubt of antecedents for many things you write. E.g., ‘…hypocrisy in what you claim and what you say…’ is simply too vague for comment.
            There is little media corruption–Peter Arnett comes to mind–and there is big comeuppance quickly from editors and owners. Are you parroting Trump’s media attack? He’s full of it. What lives? See, vague.
            I’ll stick with my ‘charity’ understanding. You can spin that for your own ego without my help.
            You read too much into my simple words. What addicts do you deal with in any formal way? More ego.

          4. ezekiel22 says:

            Oh honey I know you have to say what you say lest your world come crashing down. To say that the media is not corrupt is like saying the GDR really was democratic. Yep, i check out the Clinton News Network and MSNBC and NBC too. Sheryl Atkisson did some good in her book so pretending is all you can do.
            If you have a comprehension problem then I suggest you take remedial english to brush up. It seems you are the only one that thinks I am vague.

            Stop being a hypocrite. If you want citations from other posters I demand the same from you. Simple and fair.

          5. DrBillLemoine says:

            What’s with this continuing obsequious ‘honey’?
            Don’t you know by now I post alone, not for reaction?
            Repeating the nonsense ‘media is corrupt’ doesn’t make it true.
            In the land of the blind, only the one-eyed man asks questions; you, like other conservatives, must be vague to sneak your bulls**t past each other, but I’m the one-eyed man, so to speak. Your assertions, ripostes and references are too vague for public consumption; mine are simple, direct and common knowledge based.

    2. Webb says:

      Policy Circles…True!
      Round and Round She Goes…When she stops, We still don’t know!

      1. DrBillLemoine says:

        Till you become accountable with a real name, what you say is pure smoke and mirrors, partisan spin, not real criticism.
        I presumed you and other readers would know what ‘policy circles’ means, not the Donald-like misapprehension of base Trump supporters. Pay attention to words and context.

  • CBUJAN says:

    No one can rely on the lying media and most Americans with average intelligent realizes this, so the more they bash Trump the stronger he gets.

  • clem says:

    Trump is not using the government to stifle the press or free speech. He, like any other citizen of the U.S. has the right to not speak to or give access to event that HE pays for. Editorials belong on the editorial pages of the “news papers”, not the headlines and front page. I watched the Republican convention on Cspan and flipped back and forth between several “media” channels. Cspan showed the speakers and their speeches and let you digest (for yourself) what you just heard. The other stations not only filtered what you saw, but proceeded to tell you what is was that you heard. It is the press and the mainstream “media” that is doing a disservice to the people of this country and the First amendment of our Constitution, NOT DONALD TRUMP.

  • mpdMD1965 says:

    Allowing the media to control indicates the brain dead state of American dunderheads. Not a surprise. The American dunderheads have been brainwashed by Dumbocraps for years. Like lemmings, they follow
    the braindead fearing to think for
    themselves. Your vote for Hollary
    ( heard her screech yet?) Rotten Clinton is a vote against Democracy. The insecure females with the fat butts like Hillary relate to her not being eye candy. They are of like appearance and do elephants not stay together? So do female blobs. Hillary is unfit to
    be president but she blends well with the blob mentality. Blobs
    do not think, they waddle from meal to meal and hate themselves
    and whomever is like what they would like to be. Much like males
    who just cannot quite measure up
    to someone with looks and bucks.
    These are middle America today and the press plays to their idiocy.
    If Trump loses so does America. A vote for Rotten Clinton is a vote
    for socialism (. Not worthy of a capital first letter.). Please think before you elect someone totally unfit to serve and surely undeserving to place the final nail into the coffin of our now foundering Democracy thanks to the braindead who have voted for color trying to give a black man
    chance without realizing all he wanted was a chance to introduce
    socialism to our braindead Americans willing to accept it.

  • Lorraine E says:

    The entire media in our country is controlled by 6 corporations and they are determined to destroy our republic with their never ending lies and brain washing. Read Dan Smoot’s book “The Invisible Government.” Most people get their “news” (brain washing) from the major TV and radio stations and they are all far left, pro democrat, and anti God public opinion creators.
    The so called news media deserves the title of Mouth piece for the one world satanic government.

    DURHAM — Police accuse two teenagers of killing a Durham cab driver who picked them up after a robbery.

    Local media outlets report the 17- and 15-year-old boys are charged with murder and robbery. Twenty-one-year-old Trayvion Lyons is charged with accessory after the shooting. All three are from Durham.

    Forty-six-year-old Ameer Suliman died at a hospital Thursday after walking into a hotel seeking help, then collapsing.

    Police say the teens robbed a 17-year-old boy at a subdivision swimming pool about 30 minutes earlier and used his stolen phone to call a cab.

    Officers say they found a gun and items belonging to Suliman and the robbed teen when they arrested the three.

  • Pete Bundy says:

    Back in the ’60’s and mid ’70’s there were a lot of juntas against various leaders in various countries. One of the first things to take over and control was the media. So look now at the media w have in this country and who controls it for the most part. The next thing was to re write that countries constutioion

  • Rodney Steward says:

    You see clips of some of the other news shows and it’s unreal at how far and at the made up lies they can come up with, they’re more like the late night comedy shows that have better rating than most all of these news channels put together! And MSNBC with lick one Rachel has to be the worst of the worst!

  • Ted Crawford says:

    Once again, Trump would have us believe that he is horribly naive! Of Course he is running against the Media, as has EVERY Republican for at least the past four decades! It’s to be expected! But he acts, the key word there is “ACTS”, as if he was unaware of that fact! Utterly ridiculous on it’s face!
    In response he once again proves he hasn’t the slightest idea of what the Constitution says. He seems particularly at war with the First Amendment!`
    Having already attacked the Religious Freedom included in the First Amendment, he now idiotically, OR intentionally, attacks the Freedom of the Press! Whats next? An attack on our right to gather together peacefully? Perhaps he’ll decide we should have no right to petition the Government. That fits his egregious attitude, “Just shut the F_c_-up and do as I say!” is clearly his greatest desire! He’s executing his Exit Strategy, nothing else fits!

    1. grandmary42 says:

      You sure are working hard for Clinton! But we know the truth!

      1. Ted Crawford says:

        Were you to be paying attention you’d realize that it is actually Trump that is working for Hillary!

    2. burns says:

      Apparantly yo want someone who thinks for you, instead of with you. Only people who favor castration, are for Hillary, she cut Bills off a long time ago.

      1. Ted Crawford says:

        One assumes it is all a part of your delusion that causes Trumpites to believe that any who can’t support Trump and his clown show, must therefore be supporting Hillary and her witches show! Assuming facts NOT in evidence!

        1. bobnstuff says:

          You have to remember that there is no deference for Trumps statements or his actions so they must attack Hillary. I’m no great fan of Clinton but at least she understands how to run for president and how to work with the people she needs to help her. She has a team working together not fighting each other. If Trump can’t run a campaign how is he ever going to run the country. If he thinks the media is hard on him just wait till he has to deal with Congress.

          1. Rodney Steward says:

            She knows how to USE people, and also Kill them if they refuse!

          2. bobnstuff says:

            How many times has Trump ended up in court, how many times has he lost? Now compare it with Clinton. Who is the smarter person? If everything that is said about Clinton was true then she is the greatest, smartest person in our country and should be elected on that fact alone, she is a true winner. Or maybe these things are all made up and she is just a victims of a smear campaign. The question is do you believe she is the smartest person around?

          3. Rodney Steward says:

            TRUMP!!!! 2016 and save our country, get off the grape friend!!

          4. bobnstuff says:

            Why would anyone willingly vote FOR trump? You can give all the reasons to vote against Clinton but voting for Trump makes no sense. He stands for everything and nothing, he can’t get his act together to run a campaign, he is about as far from understanding what the common man is going through as can be. Either he is lying or he doesn’t understand our country. I’m more likely to vote for Johnson then Trump.

          5. Rodney Steward says:

            I love my country I took an oath for, and I am not giving it away to the shadow Gov., or better known as the American Communist Party! If Hellary is elected you’ll see bloodshed within 6 month!

          6. bobnstuff says:

            You think if Trump is elected it would take that long. Look at what the man has said. The question is which group will take the first strike. I do love how you use the word communist, do you have one example of anything Obama or Clinton has done that comes close to communist. They aren’t even very close to being socialists.

          7. Rodney Steward says:

            Changing the Constitution is the first step my friend! Wake up and smell the real world!!

          8. bobnstuff says:

            Trump plans to throw out the Constitution on Day One. Listen to all the things he say He will do. The only why he can do most is if the throws out the Constitution. You didn’t answer the question though, What Communist thing did Obama or Clinton do? Remember Communism is a economic system. Words have meanings and I’m not sure you know the meaning of the word communist.

          9. Rodney Steward says:

            All wrong again friend, why would the NRA endorse him if this were true! Remember, communism has failed every where it has ever been, and Russia has fallen 4 times, the last when Reagan was Prez, and it also means TOTAL control!!

          10. bobnstuff says:

            Trump will leave the second amendment for now although he did at one point support limited gun control. The NRA is only cares about the second. We only have five communist countries left and most have real problems. Communism only works as part of a strong dictatorship and then only for the dictator. China is a hybrid economy but it’s not working well, Cuba will change once the Castro brothers are gone. Venezuela is falling apart and they might not last the year, That only leave Vietnam and North Korea.

          11. Ted Crawford says:

            There is little doubt that Trump is wholly unqualified and even less prepared to be President! It is equally obvious that Hillary will make a perfectly horrible President!
            EGRO: as a result of the success of the Clinton/Trump strategy, America, as we have known Her is finished!
            I sincerely believe that, like Rome before us we have entered a death spiral from which there will be NO recovery!
            However, I also believe that you disgusting Progressives will soon, very soon, realize that your glorious victory was of a Pyrrhic nature! Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it!

    We stopped reading the New York Times longtime ago. This newspaper is so full of lies. Really disgusting.
    These journalists should be fired and to be sent to a communist country.
    Dishonesty, distortions of the truth are sickening.
    Donald Trump is not perfect but it is revolting to read all these negative articles about him and it is even more revolting to read the phony praising they write about the corrupted Hillary Clinton.
    Get rid of this polluted media to replace them real journalists who are fair and balanced.

    1. Ted Crawford says:

      RIGHT, We Trumpites don’t need no stinking Constitution! Our Dear Leader Trump will tell us what we need!

      1. Interestedintruth says:

        Did Anouk mention the Constitution? I like the 2nd amendment in the Constitution and so does Trump.

        1. Ted Crawford says:

          In this specific case, he proves he has no respect for the First Amendment, AGAIN!

          1. grandmary42 says:

            Wrong! He respects it enough to want to protect it contrary to Hillary!
            Ted, do you want to protect our republic? I do, it’s important to me to fight for this country for our children. What do you want for your children? Hillary is so wrong on so many things. The private email server, never mind what’s on it although that’s bad enough, but the fact she had it at all is such an affront on every law abiding person in this country! She is a proven liar!
            Vote Trump to preserve our nation!

          2. Ted Crawford says:

            Everything you say with respect to Hillary is true!
            In view of that fact it’s even more astonishing that ANYONE could have possibly voted for Trump in the first place!!!
            He’s the ONLY Republican Candidate that has NEVER, not so much as even once, polled higher than Hillary! He, in fact is one of only two, Jeb Bush being the other, that NEVER had the first chance to beat Hillary!
            I’m sorry but it’s too late, far too late to attempt to close the Barn Door after all the livestock has left!
            Baring Divine Intervention, Hillary IS the 45th. President!

          3. grandmary42 says:

            I don’t believe the polls. Trump is winning! The silent majority is for Trump. So is the silver brigade!

          4. Ted Crawford says:

            I’m afraid that is just not the case! In any event, Trump has signaled his intentions here, his rhetoric will become ever more outrageous, ever more bombastic, until, by November 8, even those few who are still willing to hold their noses and vote for him, will have made a different decision!

          5. grandmary42 says:

            So stop promoting and protecting her!

            Ted go back to Bed

          10. Ted Crawford says:

            Thank you for that substantive critique! Now you can go back to playing with your Trump Dollies!

      2. Rodney Steward says:

        We’ll always need the Constitution, PERIOD! Obama and Hellary hate it, without it we are at war!

        1. Ted Crawford says:

          Trump has repeatedly proven the either he is unfamiliar with or has no respect for the Constitution!

          1. grandmary42 says:

            Ted, knock it off with all the lies! Let’s argue truth, nothing but the truth!

          2. Ted Crawford says:

            I am speaking FACTS! NO President has the power to ban the Press, or Muslims either for that matter!

          3. grandmary42 says:

            Carter banned Iranians! And in our constitution there is a provision for very same. section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952.” It says, “Whenever the president finds that the entry of aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, the president may, by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrant’s or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate

          4. Rodney Steward says:

            BINGO!! muslims have been banned for a long time!!

          5. Ted Crawford says:

            “Carter banned Iranians”, indeed he did and that IS within the framework of our Constitution! In fact, with the blessing of Congress he can restrict Immigrants from ANY and even ALL Foreign Nations. What he cannot do, under ANY circumstances is ban ANYBODY based solely on their religious beliefs!!

          6. grandmary42 says:

            And who’s doing that? Trump is proposing to temporarily ban everyone from countries who have expressed contempt of the US until we can vet them better. What is wrong with that?

          7. Rodney Steward says:

            I call it being SMART, while Hellary wants to bring in 6 times more of these gutter rats as Obama, somethings wrong!

          8. Ted Crawford says:

            From December of 2015 until just recently Trump demanded a “Ban on all Muslims”! Finally someone broke through his narcissism and he changed his rhetoric, however you can’t, not really, put the toothpaste back into the tube! His current rhetoric is supportable!

          9. Rodney Steward says:

            But the most people liked it, it was the left media and a handful of rino’s and all the Dems that started this BS about how bad it is! I’m with the 70% of the country that DON’T want them here! Have U really been looking at what’s going on in Europe with these cult members!!

          10. Ted Crawford says:

            I have NO love for Islam. In fact it is my position that it is currently listed in the complete wrong Genre. It should be included in the classification of a Cult, NOT a Religion! That notwithstanding it currently IS classed as a religion, and we must react to that and not what we would like!
            We might recall that Khrushchev warned that Communism would come to America a little at a time, until we begged for it to come! Every little usurpation of the Constitution has lead to Bernie Sanders, Openly running for President as a Socialist! We must not allow any more such usurpation’s!

          11. Rodney Steward says:

            I agree, but the Dem Communist party will bring us down, and rember, and it was on the news again about Hellary making the deal with Russia, selling them 20% of our Uranium!

          12. Ted Crawford says:

            I’m well aware and as a disabled Viet Nam Veteran I’m heartbroken! That is why, after vetting Trump I fought so hard to convince people of what i had found! It was to no avail! No amount of empirical evidence, no accumulation of easily verifiable facts could penetrate the trance of Trumps siren song!
            Now, sans some Divine act of intervention, it’s too late! These past few months I’ve concentrated more on convincing people that it is critical to vote, at least for the Down-Ticket Republicans. Sadly I have no authority nor any stature that recommends my judgement! Hopefully the efforts of the Koch Brothers will make a difference! If we, the Republicans, could just hold the Senate, there might still be some hope, slim though it would be!

          13. Rodney Steward says:

            We don’t have a press, it’s a socialist show of idiots!

          14. Jim Novack says:

            Where does it say in the constitution that the US must accept Muslim immigration? I don’t favor the ban on Muslim immigration, but I don’t think that non-citizens are granted the same rights as citizens, and I don’t think that there is a constitutional right for someone anywhere in the world to immigrate to the US.

          15. bobnstuff says:

            First amendment says that you can’t do things based on religion.

          16. Rodney Steward says:

            First, it’s NOT a real Religion, it’s a cult, that’s the difference! A religion DOES NOT promote killing and beheading, and maybe they figured this out in 1952!!

          17. bobnstuff says:

            If it’s not a religion you had better tell a third of the world who uses this system of belief. If you read your bible you will find that for a long time stoning people was OK.

          18. Rodney Steward says:

            True, but it is said to be for the weak minded!

          19. Jim Novack says:


          20. Ted Crawford says:

            There is a right for anyone to apply for Citizenship, there is no mandate that they be accepted, but there is a prohibition that they cannot be denied based solely on their religious beliefs!

          21. Jim Novack says:

            Fine. Where does it say in the Constitution that anyone can apply for citizenship and that this prohibition cant be denied solely on religious beliefs? I am against a ban on Muslims immigrating to the US, but I don’t see it anywhere in the Constitution that we must accept Muslim immigrants.

          22. Rodney Steward says:

            Just like Europe that’s been warning us not too!

          23. Ted Crawford says:

            Try reading Article VI, Clause III, and The First Amendment!

          24. Jim Novack says:

            I copied this from Wikipedia, Article VI, Clause III–“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States” If I understand the wording correctly, Article VI, Clause III says there should be no religious test required for office holders. This doesn’t apply to people that are not citizens of the US.

          25. Ted Crawford says:

            Traditionally for the past 227 years since the Constitution was ratified, it has been a standard idea, that not even our Leaders are entitled to any freedoms that are not available to all people within the boundaries of the United States. The only exceptions are those necessary to the performance of their duties.
            Consider: IF we allow Trump, or anyone else, to ban one Religion today for our convenience, what, reasonable answer will we have for those who wish to ban Christians, or Jews, or Hindus, in the future, for their convenience?

          28. Rodney Steward says:

            LOL, LOL, ……………….

          29. Rodney Steward says:

            I must have missed it, I’ve never seen him say anything out of the way about it, but I have Hellary! And we don’t hear Trump saying that he’s going to continue Obama’s agenda, like Hellary! Why do U think the whole system is against him, he wants to bring back some morals in this country that the system has destroyed! And he wants to bring done the work of the shadow Gov., better known as the American Communist Party, headquarters Berkley California!!

          30. Ted Crawford says:

            Perhaps I assumed too much here. Do you have a copy of the Constitution? Have you read it, the Constitution, recently?
            Had you, you would know that Trump cannot, and remain within the context of the Constitution, ban either Muslims or the Press! You’d also realize that the authority to deliver on the overwhelming majority of his promises, is found in Article I, rather than Article II!

          31. Rodney Steward says:

            Got a copy right here, and he’s banning the enemy, the same enemy that all these other countries are infested with, that have warned us to NOT bring into our country! He’s not really banning them, just slow down and take a good look at what’s coming in! Just look at Europe, they’re FINISHED, and they’ve had their guns taken away with no way of defending themselves, like Obama and Hellary wants to do! And Hellary saying that she’ll bring in 6 times what Obama has promised! Do U believe that Hellary has converted to islam?

          32. bobnstuff says:

            Sorry but attacking any religion is against the first amendment. The only amendment he seems to support is the second and I’m not sure he has read it either. Things he has spoken against, voters rights. freedom of religion, right to a fair trial, freedom of the press, freedom of association and the list goes on and on. You can say what you want about Clinton but that doesn’t change Trumps unconstitutional statements. Now you will attack Hillary but you can’t defend the “Don” Trump.

          33. Rodney Steward says:

            I take it you’ve not listened to all of his speeches, but spend you sound like you’ve watched the media! I’ve not head him say anything about these things other than the unfairness of the media and the Soros news channels! Hellary will be our down fall, FACT!

          34. bobnstuff says:

            I guess you don’t understand what he is saying. It might be because he keeps changing it but he has said that all Muslims should be banned, that Muslims should be registered.

          35. Rodney Steward says:

            Muslims were banned in 1952 from this country!

          36. Rodney Steward says:

            I like grandmary’s better, there was an ocean put between the muslim and the civilized world, and they need to go back across that ocean and stay!

          37. Ted Crawford says:

            The Constitution, however demands something else! Curious here, just what realistic argument would you use, if you allow Trump or anybody else to ignore the Constitution to serve YOUR purpose, to deny the same to someone else who wishes to do the same thing to serve theirs?

          38. Rodney Steward says:

            What the ban was in 52 was against any religion that could cause civil unrest or interfere into other peoples lives! So that sums up islam pretty D’N good!!

          39. bobnstuff says:

            One third of the world is Muslim, many of the so call civilized things in our world came from them. All religions have their bad apples look at the history of the Christians. My Great, Great ever so Great Grandfather burned witches in the name of Christ. The church took native Americans children away from their families to convert them. I can keep listing things but you get the point. No religion is without it’s dark side.

          40. reggie says:

            Rule # 11 for radicals: If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into it’s counter side; This is based on the principle that every positive has it’s negative. So they keep saying that Trump is way behind, hear it enough and people will begin to believe it. Shillerys senior thesis was on saul alinsky, fits that bob thing, yes?

          Do not get alarmed at the ignorance of Hillary supporters. I really have never seen a really smart person espouse Socialism as a form of government. Something must draw them to her. Corpulent females find solace with others of like girth. Folks desiring socialism as a form of government are lacking ing intellectual prowess and also seek others lacking in like areas

          3. Ted Crawford says:

            Sadly very true! Just as sadly, not enough people considered this during the Primaries, guaranteeing Hillary the Presidency!

          4. Rodney Steward says:

            The so called Rep. are guaranteeing her the house!

          5. Ted Crawford says:

            I think that we, I mean the Republicans, I left the party after 43 years as a member on May 5, 2016, can probably hold a slim margin in the House. The Senate, however is certain to go Progressive due to all the squishy Democrats that gave the Primary to Trump! Even those few who will actually vote for him in the General, will not vote for any Republicans running for the open Congressional seats! All Hillary needs is the Senate! With that she can easily corrupt the Supreme Court!

          6. reggie says:

            Don’t count their chickens too soon. The polls say anything you want them to say. I always read what the ‘enemy’ CNN had to say. They posed a question regarding Benghazi.

          10. rewindpulaski says:

            And why, do you think, it wasn’t (and isn’t) “considered”…? (Cue-up the Jeopardy music!)… Our main stream press/media have their Hillary marching orders and march they will… Such things are not to be presented nor discussed.. Isn’t propaganda wonderful?

          11. Ted Crawford says:

            It wasn’t because far too many….republicans(?), like their Progressive counterparts, scummed to the pretty, shiny, dangaly things Trump threw in their clueless faces! Again like their Progressive counterparts, never realizing that most of them were unachievable and others were counterproductive! Case in Point: just yesterday Trump suggested that we should snuggle-up with Russia to fight Islamic Jihad, just like his pals Hillary and Obama! Ignoring completely that Russia’s primary Middle East Ally is……..wait for it…..IRAN, who’s first goal is the destruction of America!

          12. rewindpulaski says:

            Ted… Russia has been fighting the Islamic crazies for much longer than we have… Remember the Islamic Croations? Remember all their attacks on the Russians….? I wouldn’t say we should necessarily “snuggle up” but, like in WW2, sometimes making your enemies your allies is a better avenue to take when you consider the greater war.. This (unfortunately undeclared) war on ISIS .. Iran? We just gave them greater access to nuclear material and nuclear warheads – “the Obama treaty”.. AND Billions to keep their project going.. The greater electorate’s opinion? Crickets… No one really cares… For now; I wouldn’t worry too much about it… After Trump is elected, then maybe we’ll do something about it – at least Trump has said he’ll do something.. Hillary? Again; crickets… And your saying that 3/5ths of the 17 million votes Trump received were from people who are not of the GOP conservative electorate?! I got to throw the Bovine Scat flag down on that one good buddy…

          13. bobnstuff says:

            Sorry Greece is not communist and is not even headed that way. Communism is dying, China is slowly moving away from it and Venezuela in falling apart. Cuba has just made the first step away from it. You will need to find a new boggy man soon.

          14. Rodney Steward says:

            Sorry friend, but this is all BULLSh$T, you’re wrong about all the above! China is not moving away from anything, they’re trying to start trouble with those fake island they built in international water that NOBODY OWNS!!

          15. bobnstuff says:

            How can a communist country have close to a million millionaires. The number is growing at one of the fastest rates in history. You are aware that Communism is a economic system and has nothing to do with their political system.

          16. Rodney Steward says:

            They’re getting rich from us, they have all our jobs and are selling that junk back to us for a big price, and this is what Trump was talking about! Making changes to bring back work her, but he$$ no, the system is making to much money, not we the people!!

          17. bobnstuff says:

            Do you spend much time studying the world economy? If you did you would find that Trump has no knowledge of it. Trump was in Pa, saying he would bring the steel jobs back but it will never happen even if he shut of all Chinese steel. They sure wouldn’t locate in Western Pa. We still make a lot of steel in the US. Trump talks about how much we buy from China but never says anything about how much we sell them. 91 Billion dollars in goods went to China last year. How many jobs do you think $91 billion of product creates. The problem is not what we import but that we need to export more products to them. Also China can’t foreclose on that debt.

          18. Rodney Steward says:

            What are we selling them, Mickey D’s burgers! What go we make now that they want other than our military tech. that they are steeling, what Hellary’s foundation don’t sell them! What do we sell them, everything we buy has made in China, nothing has made in Amerca!

          19. bobnstuff says:

            I guess you now nothing about our manufacturing. We are the plastic leader of the world. Our Natural gas make great plastic. We also make the machines that make the products they sell us. Our country doesn’t waste it’s time making little stuff. America is the largest manufacturing nation in the world or just number two if you want to trust China’s numbers. Do you know why Buick is still around as a name plate, China loves Buick. As far as nothing made in the US go try to find a garbage can not made in the US, look for a shed kit not made in the US. If you never see the Made in USA label then you aren’t looking. My socks are made in the USA and I bought them at Walmart. It turns out that there are 12 companies making socks in the US. Go look.

          20. Rodney Steward says:

            WOW, we make socks, trash cans, and plastic coke bottles!! I’m pretty sure China has no use for trash cans since it’s the #1 polluting country in the world, and what is it about Buick, U talking about cars or a bicycle made by Buick! The only people their in cars are the military officials, everybody else is walking or on bikes! And remember, they have to have all their lights out by dark, how rich can U get!!

          21. bobnstuff says:

            They have close to a million millionaires. Jeep does well there. So does Harley even though you will pat $1700 a year in license. You sure don’t know anything about China. Their economy is having problems, they are having jobs stolen, it seems they are getting to expensive, high labor costs. India, Vietnam, Africa, Mexico and America are taking their jobs. They have had to dump their gold and now they are creating a need to spend on defense to stimulate their economy.

          22. NJ Lady says:

            No, I for one don’t understand THAT!

        Just like Hitler did.

        1. Ted Crawford says:

          I see no parallels to Hitler, non whatsoever, aside from the fact that he refuses to listen to anyone save himself and he violently hates anyone who would disagree with him! I don’t see him necessarily as a bad dude, rather it seems his extreme narcissism has rendered him petulant and petty, rather adolescent in fact! He’s been successful in business because few disagree with him due to the size of his check-book. That won’t be the case as President!

          1. Stan says:

            No parallels to Hitler. No sense taking this any farther

        When you look at Trump vs Hillary, who do you think will uphold the Constitution and who will not…? Trump, by the way, is not anyone’s “Dear Leader”… That title is still uniquely held by “O” and “Kim Yong I don’t give a sheeeeaaaat”….

  • disqus_BAvz0LV7zw says:

    In order to protect Clinton, and to divert the attacks against the crimes of Clinton, the MSM has taken over attacking Trump on all angles. The Media is so blatantly dishonest and corrupt that they function as the main sources of all the lies and dishonest attacks against Trump. Therefore Trump has no time to attack Clinton. MSM stood for Clinton, and put their efforts on front boxing Trump instead. And it is draining Trump’s energy, attacking Clinton. Clinton is free attacking Trump in addition to MSM.

  • Taking care of business! says:

    He’s running against the media AND Barry’s legacy.

    1. bobnstuff says:

      And loosing, says something. The same media that created him, gave him Millions of dollars worth of coverage is now his enemy. If a paper doesn’t bow down to him they get the boot from his rally. In case no one has noticed, if Hillary sneezes they say she is dying, they report every lie that comes down the pike but unlike Trump she isn’t attacking the media.

  • GrizzMann says:

    About time a Republican understood their enemy. Now the GOP should understand that

    1. Ted Crawford says:

      This has been well known and thoroughly documented at least since the early 1960’s with the slugs Walter Cronkite and Dan Rather!! If this actually is some new understanding of Trumps it simply shows he’s not qualified to be the President!

      1. burns says:

        He’s as qualified as that Muslim who never worked a day in his life. You know the one in the Oval Office, who smokes cgaretts and bops around the halls. the same one who was a “community organizer, whatever that is, before running for office. John Gatti was a Community Organizer as was Al Capone.

        1. Ted Crawford says:

          WOW! You sure set the bar low!
          Obama is the worse President in all of American History, but I’ll agree Trump would be better, but then so would a developmentally disabled third grader!

        2. mpdMD1965 says:

          Obama is in good company. The Dumbocraps rely on ignorance to succeed. Our country is now at a tipping point. A good skinflick on Election Day will keep the guys home as will a great rump roast with lots of carbs keep the Hillary sized females. Tipping 300 if the scales are not tampered with.

      2. Rodney Steward says:

        Just who is qualified to be our President????

        1. Ted Crawford says:

          Several, some better than others, all of them, except Jeb Bush, preferable to either Hillary or Trump! In my opinion, in descending order; Scott Walker, Ted Cruz and in a pinch Marco Rubio, followed by Jim Webb!

          1. Rodney Steward says:

            Rubio is totally out like Bush, they want the same thing , open borders,and that’s got to go! Don’t know anything about Mr Webb, and Cruz was my frst choice! But none of these are running and we have only one choice now, and be D’Ned if it’ll be Hellary! With Trump we’ll keep our country a little longer, with Hellary, we’ve lost it for good! This may very well be our last election, choose wisely!!

          2. Ted Crawford says:

            Mr. Webb is the only Democrat I’ve considered voting for, for President, since 1972. I’ve made my choice, all things remaining the same, I’ll be writing-in Scott Walker! As I said Mr. Webb is the only Democrat I’d consider voting for, certainly not the Liberal Democrat Trump!
            You’ve got that right, it is the last election, aside from those like take place in Russia, and North Korea! Hillary and the Progressive majority Senate of the 115th. Congress, will have the Supreme Court completely corrupted, for the foreseeable future, long before the 2020 election! Elections have consequences, clearly even Primary Elections!

        I know it is hard for some to recognize there is Radical Islamic Terror and cannot name it.

          Of course you are correct, however that isn’t the topic of this discussion!

      Now that’s funny, I don’t care who you are! Thanks for the laugh!

    3. NJ Lady says:

      Oh, too funny! This just shows how very smart and particular cats are.

  • brokebill says:

    He is right. The media controls what is reported, distorts the truth for political positioning, and outright lies to favor the Democratic Party. Most see through it and many no longer will watch MSM for this very reason. But Trump is right.

      1. reggie says:

        He’s right; the MSM, including Fox is controlled by 6-8 international conglomerates. Shillery is a chump change controlled bimbo, she dies there will be another one in her place. He’s going against the new world order, the UN, the FED, the corporations, the bilderberg group, soros, A good majority of DC wants the NWO, wants the population reduced to 500 million so that we can be better controlled. He, Donald Trump, cannot be controlled. That’s the bottom line,

          FOX was pretty good up until Obama was sworn-in. Within days of that event, FOX Chairman Roger Ailes was “summoned” to the White House for a “meeting.” Or was it a threat???

          1. reggie says:

            Interesting, isn’t it. And the same day that Trump was nominated, Ailes was fired and Murdoch took over his job. Coincidences?

            Interesting but irrelevant..

        4. No2Guns says:

          MSM means men who have sex with men. Is that what you mean?

          1. rewindpulaski says:

            No; I’m quite sure that wasn’t at all what reggie meant… It apparently means that it gives “two guns” a talking point to which “two guns” can respond stupidly… How’s is it living up Hillary’s posterior? Putz..

          2. No2Guns says:

            Is English your native language? What does “How’s is it” mean?

    2. pmbalele says:

      Trump is done as WH wannabe. People are now concerned about Trump? His mental and health as a whole. We are told he is 69 years old. People are doubting if Trump is healthy having 3 women in his place – He is not Gadhafi who used Viagra every 4 hours. At 69 with so many women he went with in his life Trump must be very sick. At that age men sexually slowdown in their drive for sex. At that age some men die after sex and especially if they are fat like Trump. And with his weight, Trump is not healthy to become president. We are again hearing he wants to go to Eastern Europe to shop for a new woman. He thinks the present one is too wrinkled. This time he will be accompanied by his supporters such as Pence, Newt, Roger Ailes, Gov. Sanford, Rev. Swaggart, Bill O’rielly who just been divorced, Sean Hannity and they may as well be accompanied by Herman Cain, the underwear groper, and Rush Limbaugh. You as an American woman will be left in the dust. I would advise you and Repubs and TPs on this sight to vote for Hillary on November 8 at 9 am. Women live longer than men. I am voting for Hillary.

      1. Rick2101 says:

        Standard Trump, blame the messenger.

        1. No2Guns says:

          Standard conservative tactic: attack the source because you cannot address the issues. They constantly whine that all media are controlled by liberals.

          1. Rick2101 says:

            How true. You can always tell a Trump supporter, you just can’t tell them much.

          2. rewindpulaski says:

            …maybe you can’t tell them much because they’re tired of hearing the mindless spew that is coming out of your mouth… quite frankly; I’m rather surprised that you can tell them anything at all seeing that your head is so far up Hillary’s posterior you can’t see much less speak…

          3. Rick2101 says:

            Thank you for such an intelligent and well-constructed response. That demonstrates why Trump says “I love the poorly educated”.

          4. rewindpulaski says:

            You’re welcome… It’s also interesting to note that when one has nothing else they usually “jump to” the insults about intelligence and “education”… Ricky – unless your “education” includes a MBA from Darden – like mine – you might want to hold back on the “poorly educated” inference in an attempt to insult… Just saying…

          5. Rick2101 says:

            I did not realize I would hurt your feelings….ski – I was merely quoting Donald “The Fraud” Trump when he was in Las Vegas. Anyone with an MBA certainly must be aware of this. I was just responding in kind to your “mindless spew” remark.

          6. rewindpulaski says:

            No – you were classifying the Trump folks as not being able to be told much – thus, implying that they are not “intelligent” as say; you? My feeling weren’t “hurt”… I’m just going w/ “mindless spew” because, more often than not, the Hillary supporters emote rather than think and they really are into “bumper sticker statements” rather than “thinking before saying”… For example; Trump has put out four specific taxation levels – can you name them? How would they effect YOU? What’s Hillary put out – the same old cr@p she’s been pushing for the last thirty years – “tax the rich”… Well; think about it… If you taxed “the 1% rich” more, so it’s “fair” (which she proposes – again; no specifics) 100% (that means they are no longer rich but paupers) you still wouldn’t get enough $$$ to run this government for more than 3 days… Bottom Line – we can’t tax ourselves (“fair or not”) back into prosperity)… That’s just a fact “Jack”… Think about what she’s proposing and compare that to Trump… That would truly “be fair”…

          7. Rick2101 says:

            Yes, you are very upset, but I will go along with you , for now, that you did receive a MVA at Darden in Charlottesville. All that really means is that you memorized facts and theories. I don’t remember the exact words but, even Adam Smith in his Wealth of Nations states that the wealthy should pay more than their proportion. Donald “The Fraud” Trump started his “career” in 1975 with help of his father, Fred and New York Mayor Abe Beame, “Whatever my friends Fred and Donald want in this town, they get,” the mayor said, according to journalist Michael D’Antonio’s recent Trump biography, Never Enough. Just another example how Trump makes” Great Deals” for himself, tax payers foot the bill. If you truly want a career in business do not follow the example of Donald “The Fraud” Trump. By the way, last I heard Trump proposes 3 not 4 tax rates – 12 – 25 – 33. It really doesn’t matter Trump will never be President of the United States. Republicans blew their chance and handed the election over to Clinton on a “Silver Platter”.

          8. rewindpulaski says:

            You like the MSM have forgot about the corporate tax rate that was proposed by Trump – as well as the above mentioned rates… Not surprising… The MSM doesn’t really care.. In actuality, the MSM doesn’t even report on any of the specifics.. Whether it is Trump’s tax plan, his specifics on immigration, or his specifics on trade and jobs… They will not report it… It’s not in their playbook… By the way; don’t fall into the media trap… They want you and others to think that Trump has no chance… Like they did when he was running against 16 other GOP hopefuls.. Well, we see how well their strategy work then… We’ll see how well it works now… AND don’t forget the independents… It appears that a huge % want nothing to do with Hillary… After listening to a couple of her “always empty of substance” speeches who can blame them… Shillary Hillary… The voters only have to listen to her once and they usually – unless they’re true sycophants (or the MSM) – say something akin to “no way; Jose”… Currently, the independents are clearly behind the Republicans – and that includes Trump… In large numbers… But the MSM will not report it nor acknowledge it… They wouldn’t dare – again; it’s not in the game plan.. The independents grade what Trump has to say and what he presents in his plans in the B+ to A range… Hillary? D and below… Now; let’s talk about Hillary’s health, eh? The woman is really and truly sick and she’ll be unable to function as President… Not my words – it’s the words of more than a few Docs… Even those who lean Democrat… I, for one, will not be at all surprised to see all the sycophants carrying Hillary out on a silver platter – either to the hospital or to the grave – before November… Using Hillary’s words – Bark, Bark, Bark, Bark… You want THAT for your President? KMA MSM KMA!

          9. Rick2101 says:

            Look Honey, nobody cares about corporate taxes. So it is still 3 tax levels for real people. As far as affecting me, it would be minimal. My accountant put me at a 2.3 effective federal tax rate and that is good enough for me. If you came to this low-brow web blog looking to argue schoolyard economic theories you will be disappointed. No one even cares about your alleged MBA. I only stop by this and other websites such as Mad Patriots, NewsMax, Patriot Powered New, etc. etc. for entertainment, and listening to the folks who support Donald “The Fraud” Trump is hilarious.

            I fully realize that you do not have any interest in me, but I actually have mixed feelings about Clinton winning the election. I have a wager with my brother-in-law, we made it before the primaries last year, he told me straight-out that Clinton would win the White House. The funny part is that I took the bet, I didn’t think Clinton had a chance against a real candidate, of course that was before Trump put on a show in the Republican Primaries. So you could say I can’t lose, I either win the wager or Clinton wins the White House. But as Trump himself says “I’m in for a long, long vacation”, at bamboozled donor expense..

      2. Worried Vet says:

        This is logic? Vote for a lying crooked traitor because women live longer. That’s sick even by liberal standards. Hillary is the one who is sick, she can hardly walk a flight of stairs without help. Hey get some common sense oh wait you can’t since your voting Hillary. As obvious as the giddy media is over Hillary and against Trump should be enough proof Hillary is a crooked socialist wanna be.

        1. pmbalele says:

          Your brains have been polluted with lies by FoxNews and right-wing media. I am here just to help you salvage your soul from that pollution. Please vote for Hillary and your soul will be redeemed.

          4. reggie says:

            Yup, you’re right.

          5. No2Guns says:

            No, we liberals aren’t paid to vote for Hillary, although I would reconsider if Trump offered me a big check.

          6. rewindpulaski says:

            Your check, no doubt, is in the mail… It will come in the form of “free college”… When you add all the “free” medical, “free” child care, “free” cell phones and service, and “free” everything else, one would think “how does she plan to pay for all this “free stuff”…? I know! I know! We’ll just get all of the money from the “money tree” (apparently located near the west end of the WH)… Please don’t insult my intelligence and tell me it will come from those evil “1%s”… Fact – you could take all of the money from the “1%” and you couldn’t run this government for more than 3 days – again; just a fact….

          7. No2Guns says:

            I don’t need free anything. I’m a university professor and live in a city where median house prices are 1.2 million dollars.


          8. rewindpulaski says:

            South end of Amelia Island, Professional Engineer w/ an MBA, Business Owner and like you, I don’t need free anything… Still can’t fully see why you would admire Saul and Soros (although being a University Professor may have something to do with it)… By the way; why do you hate our Democratic Republic and (apparently) our Constitution..? You wouldn’t be one of those “let’s redefine our Constitution to make it fit our current needs as we go along types” would you?

          9. No2Guns says:

            I support our constitution, which is why I support a woman’s right to choose what to do with her pregnancy and a gay couple’s right to marry. Your owning a gun interferes with my right to be free from violence. That’s why I oppose gun ownership.

          10. rewindpulaski says:

            Let me see if I’ve got this right… You “support” a woman’s “right” to choose over the life of the unborn and the innocent… You “support” a gay couple’s “right” to marry so I suppose you would also be “for” the polygamist’s “right” to marry as many (and at whatever age) as he/she would like since it is their “civil right” to practice their desire as much as one who is gay… You support getting rid of the 2nd Amendment (gun ownership by US citizens) because it “supposedly” “interferes with your “right” to be free from violence.. Therefore, I guess it would also be “OK” to rid ourselves of the 1st Amendment for the same reason – i.e. speaking up in opposition to violence at a BLM “get-together”… Here’s the problem many have with all of your so-called declared “rights”… They are not in the Constitution and they where never intended by the writers of the Constitution – to be there… The “rights” and “laws” that you mention were to be “given unto the States” – i.e., the powers of the Federal government as stated were to be “limited”… Maybe something was mentioned about one or two of your “rights” in the original 18 amendments to the Constitution but were thrown out before final adoption of today’s amendments, eh? This is the difference between a strict Constitutionalist – like the late Anthony Scalia AND a near socialist, world law believer, “make it up as we go along” Constitutionalist – like Ruth Bader Ginsburg and a self-professed socialist University Professor like YOU, eh? By the way; what University? I want to make sure my money and my friends and family never ever go anywhere near the place… It is obviously tainted w/ haters of the US, our Democratic Republic form of governance, and our Constitution.. At least by all appearances, these 3 forms of “hate” appear to be in-play at your University…

          11. No2Guns says:

            Scalia had no clue that our country is a republic, not a strict democracy. The majority cannot strip rights form the minority using the ballot box. His role as a Justice of the Supreme Court was to protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority. How did that man get into the bench, being that he didn’t pay attention in civics class high school? He didn’t understand that there are three branches of government and each one protects the rights of citizens.

          12. No2Guns says:

            Your comments are too long and not worth reading. Pro-tip: if you want people to read them, write more comments with fewer words. Nobody wants to read a dissertation in a blog.

          13. No2Guns says:

            Amelia Island? You must like hot weather. I don’t. I moved to San Francisco from the Virgin Islands. I couldn’t take the constant hot weather. Not for me. I don’t like island living, either.

          14. No2Guns says:

            Everybody should admire what Soros and Saul have done. Soros helped rebuild Europe after communism and has always been an ardent anti-communist.

          15. Centurion says:

            University professor. Well, now I understand why you are a commie nut job.

          16. No2Guns says:

            I’m a socialist, not a commie. I’m no nut. You’re cry naive and immature. You lack normal cognitive abilities.

          17. No2Guns says:

            I get that conservatives fear education and science. You think statistics are a liberal plot. Facts destroy your talking points.

            Ignorance is bliss, isn’t it? You’re proud to be uneducated.
            I get it.

          18. No2Guns says:

            Your Alinsky talking points are stale. Find a new canard. It’s getting old.

          19. rewindpulaski says:

            Alinsky is alive and well… Look in the mirror and you’ll see it… You’re evidence that Saul was apparently right…

          20. No2Guns says:

            Saul was right and he was a great man. So is the anti-communist Soros, who rebuilt Europe after communism.

            Your heroes used to work for the Nazis:


          21. rewindpulaski says:

            Look up the foundations of the Nazi party and, again, look at yourself in the mirror… You’ll see that your heroes were all of the major players in the National Socialist Party and movement.. Since you’ve answered w/ your admiration for both Saul and Soros, it’s all that I need to know about YOU… You have no idea who my “heroes” are so don’t claim that you do… Again; since you speak with such admiration of those who would destroy this country w/o giving it a second thought, you would be – because of your guilt by association – a traitor… I don’t like traitors and I don’t like talking to them… Therefore; “our conversation” ends now…

          22. No2Guns says:

            I’m a gay man. My heroes are the opposite of the Nazi party.
            Yes, Soros was a hero for opposing communism and rebuilding Europe after it fell. His support for progressive causes is also admirable. I don’t care about Saul. His importance is grossly over-exaggerated by the radical right.

          23. Worried Vet says:

            I don’t watch fox news. I think for my self not like liberals. They believe any and everything CNN or NBC says. Hillary is the most crooked vile person to ever run and don’t deserve to be POTUS. Women living longer is a racist statement liberals get away with because it fits their agenda. If a republican said that it would be front page news for days.

        2. reggie says:

          it is throwing it at the wall to see what sticks. With bs like this, always think of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.

          What- self-righteous? Repubs and TPs are good at that. They preach family values and Christian values. Now tell me if the following have Christian or family values: Roger Ailes, Herman Cain, Rev. Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Bakker, Gov. Sanford and their leader Trump who has 3 wives at Trump tower. Now we are leaning Trump banks in Belize and foreign banks. This is same behavior as Romney who had invested in Swiss Banks leaving people here on welfare. Where is Trump tax returns? Please vote for Hillary.

          2. rewindpulaski says:

            Even though Trump doesn’t really want much of anything from Koch, I, for one, will proudly wear the name “Koch Kool-Aid drinker”… It is far better than the name I have for you – “Soros butt boy”…

          3. No2Guns says:

            Soros is a great man who rebuilt Europe after communism. He’s an anti-communist:


            The Kochs worked for the Nazis:

            Trump is Hitler’s spawn. No wonder you support a Nazi. It makes sense

        No way, Jose! The Donald is showing no sign of sickness, although 69 seems a bit older than other Presidents we’ve had. As for his marriage, I advise staying away from those gossip magazines. He and Melania appear to be doting parents to their son. Anyway, Trump’s the best candidate at this point in time.

        1. No2Guns says:

          Too bad NJ is going for Hillary.

        2. pmbalele says:

          Trump is another Romney. Romney refused to release his income tax return and had banked in China, Japan and Malaysia. Hillary has release hers – last week. Now who do you trust? Hillary. Let Trump and his wives live happily in Belize and at Trump Tower. They are unfit to be in the WH. Let us vote for Hillary.

          1. rewindpulaski says:

            “Let us vote for Hillary…” Why?

          2. rewindpulaski says:

            The day she releases her transcripts from her 250K per 20 minute speeches to Wall Street AND her health records; maybe I would consider voting Hillary.. Maybe, but that would be a stretch.. At least she was a little more truthful w/ this latest tax release (very little) – at least she didn’t try to deduct her underwear..

    3. kenmarx49 says:

      Of course he’s right, but he isn’t saying anything new. The media have been biased during most of my 72 year life, but especially since the 1960’s. So what? Trump needs to learn how to deal with it. He needs to present a much stronger and more articulate message. Ronald Reagan faced the same media onslaught and he prevailed over it with intelligence and class, two things Trump doesn’t have. What he does have is a penchant for complaining about how “corrupt” and “rigged” and “lying” everybody else is. He is a loser!
