Look what the media was hiding under their prayer rug: Hillary’s approval numbers falling!

The Coach's Team ^ | 8/1/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins 

Remember the Democrat line that millennials love Hillary Clinton and will carry her to victory even as older voters are wisely turning away from her? A new Gallup survey shows that, like so much of what Democrats and their puppets in the media say, this just isn’t so. Gallup found that since January the favorable opinion of Clinton held by 18 to 29 year old voters has fallen 11 points, from 42% saying they had a favorable opinion of her then to just 31% saying the same today. And younger voters are not alone in changing their feelings toward Clinton. Among the next older group, those 30 to 49, Clinton’s approval rating has dropped from 45 to 41. The voters in the 50 to 64 age group have soured on Clinton as well. Since March, their opinion of her has declined by the same 45 to 41%. The favorable opinion of Hillary Clinton held by the oldest group surveyed, those 65 and over, has fallen 6 points since March and is now at 39%.
The significance of these declines cannot be brushed aside. In 2012, 18 to 29 year olds were 19% of all voters and supported Barack Obama 60/37; those aged 30 to 44 who made up 27% of voters went for Obama 52/45 over the Republican candidate. This means that 46% of all voters backed the Democrat by 56/44. With both of these groups now turning away from Clinton in substantial numbers and approving of her at an average of just 35.5%, she is in trouble.
This information was reported in Paul Bedard’s “Secrets” column and was accompanied by two anecdotes about the lack of enthusiasm among millennials specifically and Clinton supporters...

In Poll After Poll Trump Leads Clinton Among Independent Voters


The Daily Caller ^ | July 31, 2016 | Alex Pfeiffer 

General election polls of the nation and battleground states consistently show Republican nominee Donald Trump besting Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton among independent voters.
This lead among independent/non-party affiliated voters for Trump is also found in polls where Clinton leads overall. For example, in the most recent poll of national voters from Public Policy Polling, Clinton leads Trump 46 percent to 41 percent. Among independent voters, however, Trump leads 42 percent to 35 percent.
In another recent national poll from CNN/ORC, Trump leads Clinton 44 percent to 39 percent. This poll has Trump leading Clinton by 18 percent among independents, 46 percent to 28 percent. Libertarian candidate Gov. Gary Johnson has 15 percent of the independent support in this poll.
A poll of voters nationally released last week from YouGov has Clinton ahead of Trump 40 percent to 38 percent. That same poll has Trump leading with independent voters 38 percent to 26 percent.
These results are seen likewise in polls of key states. In a poll of Ohio voters from this month, Trump is leading Clinton 42 percent to 39 percent overall. Among independent voters, the GOP nominee is leading Hillary 36 percent to 29 percent.
A mid-July poll of Florida has Trump ahead of Clinton 42 to 39 percent. This poll has Trump leading the Democratic nominee 43 to 30 percent among independent voters. In the month prior, independent voters in Florida supported Clinton 44 percent to 35 percent.
In a recent poll of likely New Hampshire voters, Clinton is leading Trump 39 to 37 percent. Though among independents Trump has a strong lead 40 percent to 20 percent. In a late July poll of Missouri voters, Clinton is leading Trump 41 percent to 40 percent. That same poll has Trump ahead with independents 39 percent to 31 percent.
“‘Independent’ is not synonymous with ‘moderate.’ Independents are pretty conservative; indeed, the ranks of self-describe Independents are filled with conservatives who could not stomach George W. Bush and/or Donald Trump,” Paul Begala, adviser to pro-Hillary Super PAC Priorities USA Action, told The Daily Caller. “Romney won Independents by 5 points, even as he lost the popular vote by 4 percent.”

I have a PERSONAL message for the Muslim father whose son was killed in Iraq

Alan West ^ | 7/31/16 | Alan West 

Everyone’s talking about the speech delivered by Mr. Khizr Khan, accompanied by his wife Ghazala at the DNC that focused on the loss of his son, U.S. Army Captain Humayan Khan.
It appears things have devolved into such a level of immaturity relating to the speech that I believe there’s a need for a clear analysis of Mr. Khan’s address, and what he should have presented.
First, let me offer my condolences to the Khan family for their sacrifice, as they are now an American Gold Star Family. Their son and I share an unbreakable bond. We both served our nation and, along with three other generations in my family, took the oath to support and defend our Constitution and served in combat zones.
Yes sir, Mr. Khan, I’ve read our Constitution and firmly recognize the preeminent responsibility of our federal government is to “provide for the common defense.” I also comprehend the relationship between the three branches of government…you know separation of powers, checks and balances, coequal branches of government.
I would offer a simple recommendation to Mr. Khan. Perhaps you should have asked President Barack Obama if he had read the Constitution — undoubtedly you would agree we have witnessed a few unconstitutional actions from him.
And while you were at it, Mr. Khan, perhaps you could have asked Hillary Clinton about handling classified information — since I’m quite sure your son, Captain Khan, had at a minimum a secret clearance.
I don’t think your son would have been able to, well, have his “careless” mishandling of classified materials and information simply excused. Perhaps Mr. Khan, you could have addressed the necessity for high standards of honor, integrity, and character in a commander in chief.
Also, I found it interesting Mr. Khan, that you and your wife, an American Gold Star family, would take the stage to support a sitting president and one desiring to be president, who had abandoned Americans in a combat zone and lied about it.
I tend to believe that if alive, your son would consider that type of behavior abhorrent and deplorable. Or perhaps, as it seems, your speech was politically driven, and not based on principle? After all, you did take the stage before a crowd that disrespected a Medal of Honor recipient…is that cool with you?
You see, I understand Mr. Khan, that your son and your family are Muslim and Muslims do indeed serve in our armed forces. But in the military I know, we do not celebrate that which divides, but rather that which unites. And what is it that unites us as Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines? It is service above self, commitment to something greater than the individual, and sacrifice for our country and comrades in arms.
Now, let’s be honest Mr. Khan, those of us with knowledge could just as easily bring attention to SGT Hasan Karim Akbar and Major Nidal Hasan, both Muslims serving in the U.S. Army. Just as you celebrated your Muslim son’s sacrifice, there are others who could give testimony to their loss due to those Muslim soldiers — and I use lower case reference to them (soldiers) because they dishonored the oath and were traitors to our Code of Honor. Your son was not, but that had nothing to do with him being a Muslim: he was an American Soldier.
So, Mr. Khan, since you had such an immense stage, what should you have addressed? You should have taken the time to explain how humbled and thankful you are to live in America. You should have mentioned how honored your son was and the pride you felt knowing he was serving your adopted country. You should have explained to America, and the world, what killed your son…the ideology of Islamism, Islamic fascism.
You could have told all of us why it needed to be defeated and that we need a commander in chief who would not abandon Americans in combat, but ensure they were supported in order to defeat this scourge.
Mr. Khan, you could have taken these words spoken by a proven courageous and resilient leader, Sir Winston Churchill, who has a U.S. Naval vessel named after him, and expounded upon them:
“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”
And now we can all understand why Barack Obama had Churchill’s bust removed from the Oval Office.
Those were the insightful, prescient, and relevant words of Sir Winston Churchill from the first edition of his book, The River War.
Mr. Khan, this is what you should have addressed; it would have been so very well received. You could have told the world and defined the enemy that killed your son…instead my assessment is that you will be remembered as a political pawn.
You could have taken the time to explain the words written by Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, dated March 28, 1786, to U.S. Minister of Foreign Affairs John Jay, reporting on their meeting with the Ambassador of Tripoli:
“We [Adams & Jefferson] took the liberty to make some enquiries concerning the ground of their pretensions to make war upon nations who had done them no injury, and observed that we considered all mankind as our friends who had done us no wrong, nor had given us any provocation. [Note they clarify “nations who have done them [i.e. Muslim Barbary States] no injury”] The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the laws of their prophet [i.e. Mohammed]; that it was written in their Koran; that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners; that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners; and that every Mussulman [Muslims] who was slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”
Mr. Khan, you had a moment to speak on history and provide us clarity and truth from a Muslim man who lost his son, an American Soldier, to Islamists. You could have clarified the difference between your son and SGT Hasan Karim Akbar and Major Nidal Hasan. That sir, to me, was a missed opportunity.
Then again, maybe you had no intention of using the platform provided to you as a teachable moment…but rather a politically-influenced opportunity for gain.
You, Mr. Khan, had the chance to be the face and voice of a Muslim family that stood with the fundamental principles and values of liberty, freedom, and democracy upon which this Republic was founded — in which you have found a home.
You could have articulated how a 7th century savage and barbaric ideology inspired by a murderous warlord, psychopath, and, by modern day standards, a pedophile, was not a radical but the leader of a militant phase of Islam introduced after the 622 AD event referred to as Al Hijra.
Mr. Khan, I grieve for the loss of your son. However, I grieve even more that you used his sacrifice and loss as nothing more than a damn politicized stunt. May God forgive you for it.

In Case You Missed It Dept


President Obama hosted Mexico's president Enrique Nena Piete at the White House Friday to hail U.S.-Mexico relations. It is part of an annual exchange. Once a year, America's president goes to Mexico to visit our jobs and once a year Mexico's president comes to the U.S. to visit his people. 

The Republican convention released one hundred and twenty-five thousand balloons to end the convention Thursday. It's a bipartisan tradition. The Democrats will also release one hundred and twenty-five thousand balloons this Thursday, but theirs will be ribbed for comfort and protection. 

Bill Clinton will give a speech at the Democratic convention tonight that focuses on Hillary's career. He always makes a convention more fun. Last night, Bill Clinton walked into the hotel bar in Philadelphia where he asked the waitress for the usual, so she brought him a restraining order. 

Donald Trump's star on Hollywood Boulevard was enclosed by a seven-inch-high rectangular wooden fence topped by barbed wire built by a performance artist named Plastic Jesus. It's only right. Trump must have five thousand carpenters working for him and half of them are named Jesus. 

The Weather Channel reports a high pressure system called a heat dome is stifling the nation with record high temperatures across the United States. There is triple-digit heat from the Far West to the Eastern Seaboard. It's so hot in Philadelphia that Hillary Clinton is sticking to her story. 

Democratic Party Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned over her e-mail scandal on Monday. Hillary was almost indicted over her e-mails. Who's the idiot who sold the Democrats on the idea that their scandals would be behind them if they gave up adultery and took up e-mailing? 

U.S. Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders addressed the Democratic convention in Philadelphia Monday. It got everyone to playing America's favorite drinking game. Every time Bernie Sanders proposes a new free government program, you drink somebody else's beer. 

Bernie Sanders addressed a breakfast Monday in Philadelphia where he urged his supporters to back the party. He just made it to the event in time. The day before, Bernie received an e-mail from Debbie Wasserman Schultz telling him the Democratic convention was in Cleveland this week. 

Wikileaks released twenty thousand e-mails hacked from the DNC and many of them are anti-Bernie Sanders e-mails between DNC staffers. Some of the e-mails claim he gave up being Jewish in order to be an atheist. Even Donald Trump is asking how low they would go to destroy an opponent. 

California firefighters battled a blaze in the Santa Clarita Valley Saturday that created a huge smoky cloud hovering over Los Angeles. The sun was reduced to a bright orange ball over the city which mesmerized drivers and sunbathers. Democrats charged it was just more free media for Trump. 

Hillary Clinton was nominated for president by the Democratic convention delegates' roll call vote on Tuesday, making her the first woman in history to be a major party nominee. It's official. Hillary Clinton is now one step closer to achieving her lifetime dream of being able to pardon herself. 

Al Gore's office refused to say Tuesday why he did not come to the Democratic convention in Philadelphia. He's very wise to lie low for a little while. Hillary Clinton and Debbie Wasserman Schultz would never have been hamstrung by e-mail scandals if Al Gore hadn't invented the Internet. 

Hillary Clinton will accept the Democratic nomination for president Thursday in Philadelphia and the race is on. It's the most progressive match-up in history. Democrats are fielding the first woman candidate for president while the Republicans are putting up the first person of orange color. 

Hillary Clinton's unfavorable rating reached an all-time high Tuesday with Donald Trump's unfavorable rating similarly high. The attack ads claim one's a crook and one's a maniac. Gang leaders now recruit young people by telling them that any one of them could grow up to be president. 

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton revealed in an interview that her Spotify playlist includes Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry and Jennifer Lopez. It's such a small world. In a separate interview, Bill Clinton revealed his To-Do list includes Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry and Jennifer Lopez. 

Michelle Obama got high marks from political commentators for her speech to the Democratic convention Monday night in Philadelphia. It was nice hearing from her again. Michelle Obama is now the first person in history to give a speech at both the Republican and Democratic conventions. 

John Hinckley was released from a mental institution thirty-five years after he shot President Reagan in a demented effort to impress Jodie Foster. He's okay now. Hillary just sent Hinckley a note of congratulations on his release and tipped him off that Donald Trump is dating Jodie Foster. 

The Hollywood Reporter released the Nielsen ratings showing the Democratic convention's opening night drew twenty-three million TV viewers. That's a lot. It was mostly from hockey fans who wanted to catch up on all the fighting they've missed since the NHL season ended in June. 

President Obama, Tim Kaine and Joe Biden gave speeches at the Democratic convention on Wednesday night in Philadelphia to vouch for Hillary Clinton. There was blood all over the stage. They tied a record set at the last Democratic convention by killing bin Laden three times in one night. 

The Democratic convention on Wednesday featured speaker after speaker who tried to appeal to Republican voters to vote Hillary. They even surrounded the convention hall with a four-mile-long, eight-foot-high wall. The California delegates just laughed and tunneled their way into the arena. 

President Obama in his convention speech Wednesday conceded that the nation has suffered strife and bloodshed in Baton Rouge, Dallas, St. Paul and Ferguson. It was courageous of him to bring it up. Under President Obama's leadership, the Middle West now looks like the Middle East. 

President Obama in his speech waxed nostalgic about life in the White House Wednesday. He said many times during the last eight years, the American people picked him up and hopefully at times he picked them up too. It's the kind of line Bill Clinton could never deliver with a straight face. 

President Obama told the convention he's proud of the way he brought the U.S. economy back from recession. At the McDonald's in Oklahoma City, they offer the Obama Special. You get to order everything you want off the menu and the three people behind you in line have to pay for it. 

Hillary Clinton's vice presidential nominee. Virginia's Senator Tim Kaine, gave a well-received speech at the Democratic convention and halfway through his speech, he broke out in Spanish. It's risky. Kaine could become the second birth certificate President Trump double-checks personally. 

Donald Trump joked that he hopes Russian hackers got a hold of Hillary's thirty thousand deleted e-mails and release them. She erased them. The lesson Hillary learned as a young lawyer on the House Watergate Committee is that obstruction of justice is wrong, unless you burn the tapes.

Tonight was the start of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, where today the temperature was over 100 degrees. As if Hillary Clinton needed another reason to sweat. She went through two pantsuits. 

In fact, it was so hot Hillary met with some Bernie supporters just for the chilly reception. 

Of course, it's the Democratic Convention, which began last night. There were several big moments, and by the end, everyone was chanting "I'm With Her!" Unfortunately for Hillary, they were talking about Michelle Obama. 

Tonight Hillary Clinton gave her big speech at the Democratic Convention, officially accepting the nomination for president. The speech went well, but the lightning shooting from her hands was a bit much. 

-- Jimmy Fallon

Hillary Clinton introduced her new running mate Senator Tim Kaine at an event in Miami this weekend. She found Kaine while searching a stock photo database for "white businessman." 

First Lady Michelle Obama spoke tonight on the first day of the Democratic National Convention, while Melania Trump furiously took notes. 

President Obama appeared on Face the Nation this weekend and said of Hillary Clinton, "She's not always flashy, and there are better speechmakers, but she knows her stuff." Man, I'd hate to see Obama set somebody up on a blind date. "She's got one wonky eye and she talks too much, but you don't wanna die alone, do ya?" 

Donald Trump will be holding a Q and A session on the online message board Reddit during the Democratic Convention this week -- though Trump's Q and A will be unique in that he will both ask and answer the questions. "Am I the most handsome candidate in history? Interesting question, thanks for asking. I will say, a lot of people think so." 

Democrats held a roll call vote today to formally elect Hillary Clinton as their party's nominee. Delegates had the option of voting either "no" or "ugh, fine." 

-- Seth Meyers

Hillary Clinton's main task this week is to divert attention from leaked DNC emails and other negative press. Hillary's going to begin her speech with the rousing first line -- "Hey, Look, There's a Pokémon!" 

Donald Trump is now leading Hillary Clinton by 28 points with white voters without a college degree. However, Hillary is ahead by 98 points with voters who went to Trump University. 

Experts are saying that the highlight of the Democratic Convention's first night was Michelle Obama's speech. In fact, Melania Trump said she already knows it by heart.

Today, shortly before we taped the show, Hillary Clinton became the first female presidential nominee of a major party. So now little girls everywhere can say, "One day I'm gonna grow up and run against an insane reality TV star." 

Yesterday at the DNC, Elizabeth Warren said, "Trump's entire campaign is just one more late-night Trump infomercial." Trump called her "stupid" then said, "But wait there's more . . ." 

The first sentence of Bill Clinton's speech was "In the spring of 1971, I met a girl." You can imagine the relief in the room when they realized he was talking about Hillary. 

Last night Bill Clinton said the first two times he proposed to Hillary, she said no. Clinton then said, "So let's stop all this talk about Hillary's bad judgement." 

Hillary Clinton gave her big speech at the Democratic Convention this evening. And there was an awkward moment when she finished the speech and said, "Now where's my check?" 

Bradley Cooper was spotted at the Democratic Convention and it angered conservatives because he portrayed Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in American Sniper. These are the same people who were angry when they learned that Ben Affleck isn't really Batman. 

Today, Donald Trump said that when he asked Russia to hack Hillary Clinton's emails he was being "sarcastic." Which makes sense -- if anyone understands comedy, it's the Russians. 

-- Conan

History has been made. After months of anticipation, Jo Jo has cut it down to just two remaining bachelors. These are exciting times. Oh, and also, Hillary Clinton received the Democratic nomination. 

Hillary Clinton broke the glass ceiling, and just in case that point was lost on you, with Trump so close to the presidency, Hillary just became the largest "break glass in case of emergency" ever. 

Donald Trump vowed that when he is president he will replace the broken glass ceiling with a reinforced titanium steel ceiling and that women are going to pay for it. 

Bill Clinton said he watched all six Police Academy movies with his daughter Chelsea, which got awkward when Chelsea was like, "That wasn't me." 

-- James Corden

After the Republican Convention last week, the DNC was supposed to be the boring one. It was quite the opposite. Every time Hillary Clinton's name was mentioned there were boos from Bernie Sanders fans. Even Bernie had to ask his supporters to calm down. After a year of telling them not to calm down. It's like Chef Boyardee telling people to take it easy on the ravioli. 

Hillary Clinton became the first woman to be nominated by a major party in the United States, which even if she doesn't win is going to look great on her resume. 

Bill Clinton spoke tonight. He was the major speaker of the evening. Of course he strongly supported his wife to be our next president. In a surprise move asked Melania Trump to be his first lady. 

It was a historic night. We're either going to have our first female president, or the first president who sold a line of steaks at Sharper Image. 

After Hillary spoke tonight, instead of the balloon drop, Bill Clinton should have climbed to the top of the rafters and released all the old condoms he had. 

Last night, President Obama gave Mrs. Clinton a powerful endorsement, at the end of which, she joined him on stage for an embrace that was about as awkward as when the groom dances with his mother-in-law at a wedding. 

Hillary's choice for running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, gave a speech last night where he revealed that not only does he habla español, he can do a Donald Trump impression. He did such a convincing job that Tim Kaine is now leading Hillary Clinton by 3 percent.
