Poll: Donald Trump Sees 17-Point Positive Swing in Two Weeks

Breitbart ^ | July 28, 2016 | by ALEX SWOYER 

16 Republican nominee Donald Trump gained 17 points in roughly two weeks, according to the Reuters online tracking poll.
On July 14, 2016, Trump was 15 points behind Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton 46.5 percent to 31.5 percent. However as of July 26, 2016, Trump closed that 15 point gap and is now up two points over Clinton, 40.2 percent to 38.5 percent.
The Reuters/IPSOS polling data was fairly consistent during the Republican primaries — keeping Trump in the lead from February through May, which proved to be accurate.

Oh, The Tangled Webs They Weave… ^ | July 28, 2016 | John P. Warren 

…but this isn’t the first time Democrats have practiced to deceive. In fact, the Clintons, Obama, Biden, Reid, and Pelosi have had quite a bit of practice over the past two presidential terms, haven’t they?
The DNC display in Philadelphia has been impressive to be sure. Because establishment Democrats rigged the game for Hillary, they were ready for a showy if shallow unity frosted over by descriptions of a world only their Kool Aid believers wish to see. First Lady Michelle Obama—a powerful and effective speaker in her own right—told us she and her husband knew their time in the White House would shape the futures of their daughters, that words and actions matter, and that it’s all about who will have the power to shape the future of millions of others. When Hillary rises, the first lady said, we all rise because Hillary is a leader worthy of our country’s promise for the future. With all due respect, Mrs. Obama does not understand her husband’s words and actions have, indeed, mattered. They’ve so divided the nation and have helped corrode western civilization. Is that a future any mother would want for her children?
Bill Clinton told us of Hillary’s unflagging labor for the downtrodden, but his story had too many earmarks of a puffed up resume. Let’s assume for the moment, however, that a bit of it may be true. That being so, how and when in the world did that idealistic young lawyer become the greedy and corrupt person she is today? Was it the first big taste of Whitewater cash? Was it her exalted White House life surrounded by sycophants? Was it too much power? Was it the many millions of speaking fees? Was it the ease with which she could get away with it, abetted as she has been by the establishment?
Bill said his image of Hillary couldn’t be squared with that painted by her enemies, and he’s right. The Hillary who may have helped poor kids get insurance 20 years ago will lie to us tomorrow about TPP, Benghazi, Iran, and whatever else suits her for the moment. It’s because of the Clintons’ long parade of lies that we doubt his version of anything. We’ve come to know what’s been in it for Hillary and her husband, but what’s in it for all of those who are now promoting her?
For Bill and Hillary, of course, absolutely everything is at stake in this election. If elected, they get to bury every one of their secrets and settle scores with enemies. For Barack Obama, there’s much at stake, too. Obamacare. The Iran Deal. Unconstitutional Executive Orders. Bureaucratic burdens on business. An appointment to SCOTUS? For the vast left-wing apparatus the Clintons have built up with Obama and Ayers and Alinsky, the levers of government power can remain in their grasp, and for the power-mongers, that’s the greatest treasure of all.
Democrats may have better more passionate speakers, to be sure, but it should always be remembered that progressivism is a philosophy of feelings, which tend to be situational at best, not a philosophy grounded in moral principles and bedrock rules of civil governance. If over eight years of Democrat speeches were backed by actions, would we have racial and ethnic strife in this country? Would we have a world cankered by ISIS brutality? Would we have millions of jobless teens? Would we have a disintegrating middle class?
Three-quarters of the nation think we’re on the wrong track. Two-thirds of us think race relations are bad—exactly the opposite of how Americans felt when Obama took office in 2009. Most people not living in the ether of a video game know the awful numbers oh, so sadly well. Worse, the everyday experiences of many make them feel less safe now than just a few years ago, and an out-of-control ISIS makes many wonder if a weak, progressive power structure will someday give in to the horrors of sharia law. It happened in Belgium, France, Britain, and Germany. Why not here? Democrats don’t like to offend anyone, do they?
Now, of course, the polls are close. Despite Donald Trump’s amazing ability to alienate many without spending a dollar, he has made the race a toss-up. Despite the stacked deck of State Media (MSM to some), Academia, and Hollywoodland all arrayed against him, he has spoken the tough, rough words that have caught the ear of Joe & Josie Six-Pack and secret admirers in every other demographic. His very successes, however, have troubled the night dreams of establishment Democrats everywhere, and they are desperate.
All the stops will be yanked for 2016. For a party leadership steeped in deception, it is not unrealistic to consider the unthinkable. If all else fails, there’s the electronic ballot box itself, as USA Today wrote about just prior to the last election, and as I described in my book Turnover. Bernie’s people naively assumed they were competing on a level field, and it turned out to be a rigged race. That may have been their biggest mistake, and for Americans, making the same assumption about November may be the mistake of our electoral lives.
If Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Hillary minion for decades, and the DNC thought it perfectly acceptable to deny their own party members the right to an equal vote, what barrier would stop them from stealing everybody else’s votes?

Pat Caddell: Democrats ‘Walked Right into the Trap’ Donald Trump Baited with Hillary Clinton’s Email

Breitbart ^ | July 28, 2016 | by JOHN HAYWARD 

Caddell was also critical of Democratic messaging after Donald Trump’s press conference on Wednesday. “Yesterday was one of the most amazing days I’ve ever seen,” he declared. “Throwing the ‘treason’ word around, the T-word, if you will. Why were they walking into the trap?”
He said he did not know what might have been revealed in the pilfered DNC voicemails released by WikiLeaks Wednesday, but “anything that has to do with the words ‘email,’ ‘Hillary,’ the ‘DNC’ – all of this just continues to roil the situation.”
He agreed with Bannon that Trump was deliberately baiting Democrats and the media by making controversial comments about Clinton’s emails, and “they walked right into the trap, believe me.”
Caddell also weighed in on the debut of Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine, who “seems like a very, basically nice man, reading other people’s words and looking like, you know, ‘What am I doing here?’”

Democrats HATE The Constitution [DNC Banner - "We Don' Gotta Show You No Stinkin' Constitution"] ^ | JUNE 16, 2016 | BEN SHAPIRO 

On Thursday, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) let slip what most Democrats have been thinking for decades: Constitutional rights are problematic. Manchin told Morning Joe, “The problem we have, and really the firewall we have right now is due process. It’s all due process. So we can all say we want the same thing, but how do we get there?”
That dang due process. That silly Second Amendment. This Constitution thing keeps getting in the way of Democratic priorities.
I’m old enough to remember when Democrats protested the PATRIOT Act by claiming that it violated citizens’ rights. Now they want to hone in on citizens’ due process rights – the most fundamental right in the Constitution, given that it is the predicate for the removal of other rights – and do away with them. Dylan Matthews of is clearest in his desire: “I’m totally down with letting the prez unilaterally ban people (hopefully everyone!) from buying guns.”
This follows hard on the heels of Democrats claiming that Americans shouldn’t have the First Amendment right to speak freely about climate change, and that Americans shouldn’t have the First Amendment right to label people by their birth sex. It also follows on the heels of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama openly stating that there is no First Amendment right to exercise your religion in your business, and both of them using their government positions to rip exercise of First Amendment rights they deem Islamophobic.
So Democrats don’t like the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, the Fourth Amendment, or the Fifth Amendment. Good news: they still like the Third Amendment, which prevents quartering of troops.
For now.

Trump Jr. accuses Obama of lifting from his convention speech! (good for goose, good for gander)

The Hill ^ | 7/28/2016 | Caitlin Yilek 

The son of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says he’s “honored” President Obama would “plagiarize” a line from his Republican National Convention speech.
“I’m honored that POTUS would plagiarize a line from my speech last week. Where’s the outrage?” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted Thursday, following Obama’s Democratic National Convention speech on Wednesday night in Philadelphia.
Last week, when addressing the Republican convention in Cleveland, Trump Jr. said: "There’s so much work to do. We will not accept the current state of our country because it’s too hard to change. That’s not the America I know. We’re going to unleash the creative spirit and energy of all Americans. We’re going to make our schools the best in the world for every single American of every single ethnicity and background.”
On Wednesday, Obama said: “What we heard in Cleveland last week wasn’t particularly Republican, and it sure wasn’t conservative. What we heard was a deeply pessimistic vision of a country where we turn against each other and turn away from the rest of the world. There were no serious solutions to pressing problems, just the fanning of resentment and blame and anger and hate. And that is not the America I know. The America I know is full of courage, and optimism, and ingenuity. The America I know is decent and generous.”
Trump Jr.'s accusation of Obama of plagiarizing the line, “That is not the America I know” comes a week and a half after Melania Trump faced backlash for using parts of first lady Michelle Obama’s 2008 convention speech.
The woman who wrote Melania Trump’s convention speech, Meredith McIver, took responsibility for copying portions of that speech and offered to resign as an in-house writer for Donald Trump last week, though the GOP nominee refused to accept it.

The Democratic Bash Won’t Matter

WSJ ^ | 7-27-16 | Tokyo Rove 

Though the slogan for the first day of the Democratic National Convention was “United Together,” the party appeared to be anything but. Hacked emails dumped online by WikiLeaks had confirmed the worst suspicions of Sen. Bernie Sanders’s supporters. The Democratic establishment had been working all along to defeat their man, even discussing whether to plant stories that Mr. Sanders, who is Jewish, doesn’t believe in God.
After Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced her resignation, she was rewarded by being named an “honorary chair” for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Sanders supporters were hardly satisfied. On Monday the Bernie Bunch booed Ms. Wasserman Schultz off the stage. They demonstrated their frustration in the convention hall, and on Philadelphia’s streets, demanding votes on their candidate’s proposals on trade and the party’s rules.

Ann Coulter Dot Com ^ | 27 July 2016 | Ann Coulter 

Whatever questionable choices were made at the Republican National Convention last week, I didn't hear of a single speaker whose sole accomplishment was raising a delinquent who attacked a cop.
But as the country reels from the cold-blooded murder of five policemen in Dallas and three in Baton Rouge, Lezley McSpadden, mother of Mike Brown, America's most famous cop-assaulting criminal, appeared on stage at the Democratic National Convention.
Welcome to Hillary's convention, celebrating the anti-police group Black Lives Matter!
The whole raison d'etre of BLM is the belief that cops are wantonly killing "black bodies." But only four of the dead black kids being honored were even killed by cops. Two were murdered by black gang members.
Of the four deaths that involved the police, all the victims were fighting the cops when they died.
In this regard, I notice that six of the nine "Mothers of the Movement" have different last names from their snowflakes. The children with the same names as their mothers were the two who were gunned down by black gangs, as well as one schizophrenic, who, unfortunately, had grabbed an officer’s baton and was hitting him with it when he got himself shot.
After massive, enormously expensive investigations, only one officer in any of these four cases was convicted of any offense: involuntary manslaughter for the 2009 shooting by a BART police officer of Oscar Grant -- who was in the process of being arrested for an enormous public brawl when he was shot.
Contrast his death with the deaths of 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton and 16-year-old Blair Holt. Hadiya was shot in the back by black gang members, while in a Chicago park with her friends -- who were mistaken for members of a rival gang. ....

Why should I believe what Bill said about Hillary at the DNC?

American Thinker ^ | July 28, 2016 | Jack Hellner 

Why should I believe a serial sexual predator, congenital liar, serial adulterer, seller of the Lincoln bedroom, seller of pardons, and releaser of Puerto Rican Terrorists and good buddy of convicted pedophile billionaire Jeff Epstein? Why would I believe someone who jacked up his speech prices when his wife became Secretary of State and someone who would just lie about Hussein having WMD’s?

Bill said he was going to correct the cartoonish depiction the Republicans gave of his wife but I believe I have spotted some things he must have left out inadvertently.

If You Liked Obamanomics, You'll Love Hillarynomics!

Investors Business Daily ^ | July 27, 2016 | Editorial 

Democratic Convention: What can you expect from economic policy from a Hillary Clinton White House? You already know. Just look at the last 7-1/2 years under President Obama.
Those expecting a new direction for the economy under a future possible President Clinton will likely be deeply disappointed...
...Tanden, was clear on one thing: "All of our policies must raise median wages for American workers ... (Hillary Clinton) is going to focus her presidency on rising inequality and stagnant wages."
While laudable, how would Clinton do that? The answer is:... ..."shovel-ready" infrastructure projects...
...leaving the American taxpayers with trillions of dollars more of debt, permanently higher spending... ...costing the economy nearly $2 trillion in lost GDP...
...As to rising corporate profits, Democrats actually see this as a problem to be solved. Why? Because wages aren't going up. But wages are a function of investment. And Democrats have made it quite clear their policies will be investment unfriendly.
Tanden also vowed to focus on the "challenges of short-term-ism in the corporate culture."... for economic growth, nothing...
...As the party has turned dramatically to the left, it sees only redistribution — not growth — as the answer to every problem. But redistribution crosses a line and eventually becomes theft.
This has defined the Obama era, and it appears it will define the Clinton era, too. Instead of tax cuts, entitlement reform, and repeal of ObamaCare, Hillary promises tax hikes, less free trade and an attempt to bring back a 1932 law — Glass-Steagall — to regulate the banking system.
Hillarynomics doesn't look like change you can believe in. Just more of the same.
