CLINTON GETS REAL: ‘BASKET OF DEPLORABLES’ BEHIND TRUMP

She is catching heat from the Trump campaign naturally from Kelly Ann Conway.  Funny how this seeming saccharine Trump spokesperson does not get what Secretary Clinton said.

Hillary Clitnon is 100% correct. I COMPLETELY AGREE. Trump's supporters ARE a basket of deplorables that include the KKK, white supremacists, Anti Semites, homophobes, anti-Muslim, anti persons of color and Duck Dynasty just plain violent morons.

He said he loves the uneducated and that is who he got so ARE they deplorable? YES, MANY are!

CNN caught rigging its polling methodology to falsely claim Donald Trump is beating Hillary Clinton. Why am I NOT surprised?



Shame on you CNN and any other cable news that puts across faux statistics!


Dailey News:


CNN and other cable news networks have spent weeks reporting that the race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump has been “tightening” – even though there has been little to no evidence in the polling averages of any such tightening – in an apparent attempt to keep their audiences tuned in even as the election grows potentially stale. Now, in an belated effort at legitimizing its invented narrative, CNN has produced a new poll which shows Trump suddenly catapulting into the lead for no apparent reason. But an analysis of CNN’s changes to its polling methodology reveals that it’s a rather blatant fraud.

Recent elections have shown that seven percent more registered Democrats tend to vote than registered Republicans, even if they don’t always vote for the party they’re registered to. That means pollsters must decide whether to sample seven percent more registered Democrats in an attempt at getting the most realistic result, or to simply sample both parties equally under the assumption that they’ll end up showing up in equal proportion. But as it turns out, CNN did neither with its poll: it’s suddenly sampling four percent more registered Republicans than Democrats.

CNN has provided no reason for its sudden jarring change in methodology, which goes against everything that’s known about the national voting base. In fact NBC News studied the changes and concluded that CNN has no reasonable justification for deciding to begin sampling what it calls “an electorate we’ve never seen before.” When even the usually false-equivocating Chuck Todd of NBC is taking a stand against CNN’s bizarre rigging of its own poll, it stands out as being particularly blatant.

Although NBC News was polite enough not to say it in exact words, I will: CNN purposely rigged the methodology of its own poll in order to produce a result that’s in line with the supposed “tightening” that it’s spent the past few weeks falsely reporting on. When you back out the rigging in the CNN poll and re-sample it using a method that’s generally considered valid by professional pollsters, the actual result of the CNN poll appears to show that Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump by four points, which is just slightly below the overall polling averages. In other words, nothing to see here, beyond the question of how much CNN may have hurt its own reputation with such a stunt. By releasing phony new poll numbers which fit its preferred narrative, CNN has succeeded in convincing its own most loyal viewers that its ongoing claim of a “tightening” race are indeed valid, thus keeping them glued to the set in suspense – and it’s generated quite a bit of outside attention for the network as observers try to figure out what to make of the shocking (and ultimately fictional) revelation that Trump somehow came out of nowhere and climbed into the national lead. But it’s just the latest reminder that cable news is the lowest of all news formats, the least accurate and the most willing to willfully mislead its audience, and that even network TV news is more willing to draw the line.

Trump Lies and Matt Lauer

I have not liked Matt Lauer or even the Today Show, in general, for a long time.  It is mostly a silly saccharine entertainment show while the nation is politically on life support.  It is a far cry from its beginning in the days of Dave Garroway who used to sign off the show by saying "peace."  Matt Lauer, like much in the faux news business, I believe, is a corporate shill and was so during the Foreign Policy Forum of the presidential candidates.  I suspect he went Trump light because the entertainment value (and that is all Trump is) of Trump must be protected so he will agree to be "interviewed" on the Today Show and attract viewers.  It’s all about the money, of course, except our LIVES are at stake if this con man walks into the oval office.  It would truly be, in Trump's words, a DISASTER.  Lauer had a moral obligation to walk Trump back from the lies he said like he did not support the Iraq War from the beginning.  He did support it from the beginning and he is ON TAPE saying so. The lying bucket of orange swill, Trump, gets away with ALL of his lies. Trump is one big con as Romney said.  I was no Romney supporter but he was 100% right on Trump.  Matt Lauer had the obligation to we the people to nail Trump on every lie.

3/4 of the things or more that Trump says are lies.  He says he gave money to 9/11 victims but there is NO evidence of that.  He allegedly knew "hundreds" who died on 9/11 but there was NO evidence of that either.  What funerals of the victims did he attend? -- Answer: We know of NONE!  He said he saw from Trump Tower people jumping out of the Trade Center buildings when the Trade Towers would NEVER be within proximal eyesight of Trump Tower.  Those jumping out of buildings were barely visible to those who were closer to them. He lied when he said he could see hundreds of Muslims cheering as the Towers fell.  None he claims to have seen was cheering.  That was a dastardly lie alienating half the world. 

Although, he did give a $25,000 dollar contribution from his charity, Trump Foundation, wholly illegal, to the campaign of Republican Pam Bondi AG of Florida.  Directly after that she dropped joining as a group plaintiff in the lawsuit against Trump University fraud and they bold face lied about it including Bondi who said the claim is outrageous.  It is NOT outrageous and should be investigated.  The quid pro quo of that gift begs investigation and to again use a Trump phrase “many others believe it too.”  The same quid pro quo allegedly occurred in Texas.  They dropped the prosecution of Trump University after the AG in Texas received a contribution from Trump.

Trump’s campaign is one big lie including how many bankruptcies he has filed, how much he is worth, what his taxes are, the fraud of Trump Institute, stiffing his workers including recently Republican policy wonks that left his campaign allegedly on masse claiming they were not paid. Surprise, Republicans want to be paid! Last but not least his love affair with Putin is money-driven conflict of interest suspect.

According to the Washington Post “USA Today tallied the number of lawsuits Trump had been in over the course of his career. It figured the number topped 4,000 since 1976 — an average of 100 lawsuits a year.  Of the lawsuits in which Trump has been involved, though, few are so perfectly Trump-y as the lawsuit filed AGAINST Trump's campaign by the USA Freedom Kids,” the group of three very young adorable patriotic girls dressed in patriotic garb who sang at Trump rallies in Pensacola, Fla., this year.  They claim he agreed to pay them but didn’t. Story: USA Freedom Kids v. Donald J. Trump for President Inc. posted below.

Trump lies and he lies ALL the time.  It is the moral obligation of the press, including Matt Lauer, to put a microscope to the lies and to CALL THE CRETAN TRUMP OUT on all of them.
