The debates are what will make people's final decisions.

Most voters are already decided. The electorate has accumulated enough information to come to a conclusion as to whom they prefer. Clinton leads national by 6-8%. Clinton leads even better in the key tipping point states. There is just not enough undecideds and not enough time.

That is why all the aggregate forecast sites have Clinton pummeling Trump.

Barring HRC taking a dump on stage while singing "These Old Legs, they ain't what they used to be" the debates will change nothing. More likely, Trump will blow it, and his numbers will cave, as 'moderate' Republicans abandon him and go for a split ticket.

Many on my side say "Ohhhhhhh, don't say that. It will depress turnout." I say, pashaw! We're wining. Not Charlie Sheen Winning. US after D Day winning. Secretariat pulling away with 8 lengths winning.

And we're gonna run up the score!

It's too bad that people feel that there is no good choice between Hillary and Trump. This is the fault of the Republican party, and their move in the past few generations to tie up their policies with the extremist right. The Republican party of my childhood was a viable alternative to the Democratic party. Their policies were primarily economic, with some moral ideals tied into it. But recent iterations of the Republican party have tripled-down on unreasonable moral ideals, and moved to the extreme with their economic policies.

What the US needs is a new party for those who identify with conservative economic policy, but without their extremist ideals.

If anything reflects a potential conflict of interest, it's the fact that Trump has refused to release his tax returns, his history of involvement with Russian investors close to Putin, and the enormous amounts of money his companies owe foreign financial institutions. The Clinton Foundation non-issue is the same as all of the other non-issues that have been raised by the right since Bill was in office in Little Rock. All smoke and mirrors, and the only heat generated is that from the panting of the GOP.

And what can be so secretive about a tax return?

4 ( +7 / -3 )

Trump is not under an investigation over his taxes.

How many of his cohorts ARE under investigation? In fact, Trump is even named as a witness in one of these deals.

Furthermore, he doesn't have to

No, he doesn't have to, but he should. Why wouldn't he? He could put all the allegations to rest if he released his tax returns.

@Fizz all fell for it with Obama, or its your selective reasoning.

I actually do think 'hope and change' coming from a young African-American running for office after the Bushes had invaded Arab Gulf nations (to further enrich their family and family friend's, including the Al Saud's and Al Sabah's oil businesses?) and seriously damaged the US economy made great sense at the time and cannot be compared with 'I'll build a wall' and 'You're for us or you’re for the terrorists'.

Too bad the tea party and other rightists stopped Obama's numerous attempts to bring about hope and change. The rightists have to take responsibility for many of the problems that occurred during Obama’s presidency. I think it’s amazing what he’s been able to do in the face of such strong and well-funded opposition.

Given Trump's history of bankruptcies and the fact that he’s in debt to international financiers, and given his many failed business, why reactionaries believe Trump can ‘fix’ anything - makes sense only to them, I guess. Or does ‘I’ll fix it’ mean he’ll use his presidential powers to pay off his debts?

Why won't he release his tax statements?"

If the left won't, why the heck should the right?

Because unlike you and your cohorts, they do not lie. They do not misappropriate the work of others and use it as their own.

What you did, lifting a fictious book you did not write and pretend it is fact when it is fiction is incredibly dishonest. Why lie, bass? If you have to lie to "prove a point" or when an argument, is it really an argument? No more waffling or whataboutisms, why did you lie? Why did you choose to plagiarize parts of a fiction book??

Clinton really took it to Trump yesterday.

http://fortune.com/2016/08/26/hillary-clinton-speech-alt-right/

“From the start, Donald Trump has built his campaign on prejudice and paranoia. He is taking hate groups mainstream, and helping a radical fringe take over the Republican Party. His disregard for the values that make our country great is profoundly dangerous.”

She goes down a laundry list of examples of who Trump is and what he's done, then takes it to the people he surrounds himself with. Alt-right, Breitbart, Alex Jones, White Supremacists. She gave praise to message from Bob Dole, John McCain, and even George Bush, and said that the party of Trump isn't what the GOP is. A lot of people are saying the she gave the speech Republicans should have given a long time ago.

But Hillary was ordered to hand over her emails. And then....?

And is there suspicion on his tax return return , yes or no ? Nothing illegal. Just embarrassments.

Exactly, zurconium. Hillary is dreaming if she thinks controversies are behind her in the land where a sizable amount of people still think Obama was born in Kenya. Her bathroom breaks and pillow usage are under scrutiny, for heaven's sake. She will win, but the nasty teabagger rage will follow her like a fart in an elevator. Expect tens of millions of dollars and thousands of hours to be spent on various "investigations."

It will never end until this demographic segment either dies from old age or achieves a college education.

Top Republicans....have been noticeably quiet in defending Trump against Clinton’s charges of racism in his campaign

And that is the only real story here. One week ago I wrote Donald has a week to unbake his terrible polling numbers. It is one week later. Now, a nominee for one major political party spends 31 minutes attacking the other nominee as a long-term racist.

And the other nominee's party is silent.

The Republican establishment has abandoned Donald J. Trump.

This election is over.

Top Republicans have abandoned Trump. The election for the Presidency is over.

Trump begs to differ

Of course he does. The man hasn't a leg to stand on.

In turn, Trump is trying to paint Clinton as the racist.

The world upside down. Has he no shame, is he so easy to forget his own continuous racism filled rants and racist past or is he just brainless?

Maybe all three.

New evidence of Hillary crimes and corruption are discovered every week. It appears there are at least 50 elites who paid Hillary for favors, more email, more crimes, it's never ending.

New smear campaign tactics are created every week. It appears now they have decided to start talking about fake improprieties by the Clinton foundation, or other email stuff.

It appears they've finally abandoned Benghazi as the farce it was though.

"It's not over yet, so until then, you or anyone else can't call it. I remember my uncle saying the same thing in 1980 and then his jaw dropped. But I will say this, this election cycle on both sides is nasty and disgusting, the entire mudslinging is just outrageous."

Trump's mudslinging is partly what propelled him to the nomination. While it was trashy, he humiliated the bobble-heads in the debates with ad hominems. Jeb looked like he wanted to run home to mummy and Rubio looked like he'd just had his arse whipped with a rolled up towel in the showers. Utter trash, yes, but effective and many people like him for it.

There's always mudslinging from both sides but let's be honest, Trump has taken this to new levels. This is why the debates will be eagerly watched. They are waiting and hoping to see Trump throwing his feces all over the stage.

New evidence of Hillary crimes and corruption are discovered every week Evidence of crime means arrest. Has Hillary been arrested? It's one thing to hate her. But to say she's criminal with never being charged with anything is futile.

@Fred, you are expecting a scandal in those emails? What is the worst that will turn up in your expansive imagination?

Lizz: According to Hart, voters have given Trump more chances than he deserves and will continue to do so because they are thirsting for change and do not trust Clinton at all. Voters in Hart’s focus group reportedly compared Clinton to a step-mother and said her dishonesty made their “blood boil.” “It’s not game over yet,” Hart said.

This was lifted from Breitbart.com writer Tony Lee. You should credit your sources.

Peter Hart, a Democrat and one of the country’s most respected pollsters, admitted on Friday that Donald Trump can win the White House if he has “one sane month” on the campaign trail.

That's a bit like expecting Shane MacGowan to have "one sober month".

Trump is stuck with being Trump.

This is interesting: DONALD Trump has told America that he is actually an enormous eagle with red-and-white striped wings. (Daily Mash)

2 ( +3 / -1 )

The right wing crowd never gives up. Its is Obama is a Kenyan or Hillary is a traitor to her country, and on and on. They just love fake issues to get angry about as they basically want to be angry all the time. And Trump takes advantage of this weak mindedness. Fox news lies all the time to this crowd, they would not know the truth if it hit them in the head like a frying pan.

Meanwhile Trump is walking back from his immigration stance (they are all rapists) and is now offering amnesty to long term illegal immigrants. The number one issue for the right wing crowd he now flip-flops on 70 days from the election. He has played his voters for saps. Ann Coulter is so angry at Trump for abandoning his tough immigration stance she is going more crazy than she was already. It is such a sad joke that anyone would so gullible as to believe anything Trump says at all, he is a 100% pure conman.

The reason I bring up this dilemma for book authors is that Ann Coulter writes the following words on page 3 of her new book about how Trump is awesome: “there’s nothing Trump can do that won’t be forgiven. Except change his immigration policies.” Given Trump’s gyrations on immigration this week, this is such an unfortunate sentence. It leads to sad headlines like, “Trump Betrayal of Ann Coulter Timed Perfectly to Release of Ann Coulter Book About Always Trusting Trump” and sad pictures of Coulter steeling herself to give book talks and angry Coulter tweets at Trump.

You are all just like Ann Coulter, only you do not know it yet.

Nonsense!! They NEVER embraced him from the beginning, it's the voters that wanted him. Remember, the establishment tried to force-feed us Jeb.

I never thought I'd say this, but I wish the Republican nominee had been Jeb.

Although I guess I kind of don't wish that as well - Trump is looking to be talking himself out of being president. Jeb may have talked himself into it.

The point I'm making though is that if a Republican were to win the president, Jeb looks to be infinitely better than Trump would be.

Lots of people still think Obama was born in Kenya including Trump. Whatever happened with that?

They must think that the emails will reveal that Obama was born in Kenya which is why they are so desperate to have them released. Lots of people just following their cult leader.

Donald Trump doctor admits writing health note in five minutes

http://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2016-37203285

Looks like the Trump strong-armed the doc and now he's worried.

Trump should release his health records.

And his tax returns.

I'm sure that after all the shrieking from the Alt-Right a out Mrs Clinton's health that they would never ever ever show a double standard on this. Trump's advanced decrepitude demands it.....

Trump should release his health records.

"...astonishingly excellent..." will soon join 'build a wall', 'rigged', MSM' and 'this is interesting' as currency among the faithful.

Trump's doctor is another veracity challenged rich man who, like Trump, inherited money and has flexible ethics. As a highly paid shill for the nabobs he just diagnoses and reports what the highest bidder wants him to say.

Release your health and tax records, Don! That would be really astonishing. And excellent.

During the speech notice how she loses concentration and Her eyes start to wander

Mainly what I notice in your link is that whoever selected where to start and finish the video seemed in an incredible hurry to cut before anything that might provide the tiniest sliver of context could be seen. The clip following yours is supposed to show Clinton needing help, and is just five seconds long, during which she loses her thread. That is something that could happen to any person who has been campaigning for a while, but the video doesn't give the viewer a chance to see what's going on.

As far as I'm concerned, when the desire to "assist" footage is so blatantly obvious, it calls into question whatever the video is purported to be evidence of.

Actually, the debates can change a lot,

Hillary will probably turn off a lot of the independents who were already leaning towards Trump because she'll be talking about real policies and topics, which she can discuss in great detail. There are few people anywhere who have her level of understanding of world and national politics. She's one of the most experienced candidates ever to run for office. She's very articulate and will be able to talk in depth on any political subject that comes up during the debates.

But the audience will include many who are easily confused when someone tries to discuss complex issues. For some of the independents watching the debate they'll be listening for a meme to repeat. 'I'll fix it', 'What have you got to lose?', 'I'll build a wall', 'rigged', 'media', 'this is interesting' and my personal favorite 'terrorists hate freedom' are easier to remember. Once again the reactionaries can reach their intended audience by using empty phrases (and dog whistles), which Trump is a master of. (Reagan's 'There you go again' comes to mind.)

Hopefully among the independents there will be enough who can see that Clinton has a superior understanding of issues and that Trump is a con man carrying on PT Barnum's tactics.

I find it sad that everyone who hopes Hillary Clinton faces justice gets downvoted on the internet.

Regardless of your political viewpoint, criminal behavior should never be allowed.

These 15,000 emails were supposed to have been handed over in the first investigation. The fact that she did not hand them over would be enough to charge her with obstruction of justice, but besides that, it seems clear she was holding them back so that she could scrub the data off the disks.

If you don't believe she was involved in very sketchy, obviously illegal activities, you really need to question your sense of ethics.

Meanwhile Trump is walking back from his immigration stance (they are all rapists) and is now offering amnesty to long term illegal immigrants.

According to Guiliani he is taking a page from Chris Christie and is going to talk about biometrics and E-Verify, not amnesty, referring to Christie's previous calls to track immigrant visas like overnight packages, and for all employers to make mandatory use of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's E–Verify system, which allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the U.S. If e-verify was enforced and violators prosecuted, there would be no need to build a wall or track tourists overstaying their visas as undocumented immigrants could not find jobs. So border security could be focused on illegal activity like drug running and human trafficking....no doubt there would be howls of outrage from liberals about that flip flopping also.

She has lied repeatedly about every aspect of the investigation. From having permission for the server to no classified documents to complying with protocols then in effect to every email also being on the senders gov account to blaming Colin Powell for illegal advice and doing the same (which he didn't). If these 15,000 emails turn out to be a combination of "personal" (Clinton Foundation related ?), work related State didn't have and work related they did it will be more of the same. I only turned over what was known to me and had my lawyers handle the rest.

Trump’s management style may be chaotic but at least it is hands on. That is the way he runs his golf courses and by all appearances is running for president. While the chaos can be bad it also reflects that he is quite involved with the process at hand and is always tinkering with organization, structure and message in order to get the outcome he wants.

Trump is certainly not fit for duty

Ms. Clinton not fit either in my opinion. However she may be on to something. The Associated Press article below is interesting. The State Department was ordered to release her calendars showing who she met with while Secretary of State 7 months ago. Now the State Department is saying they cannot release the calendars until after the election (around December 30). I have to ask why it takes so long to release her calendars and what is being scrubbed or hidden from the American people (her employers).

For those against Trump (some quite vehemently) I completely understand you and agree with you (aside from the name calling, etc.). However I do not understand those that continue to deny all of the suspicious activities surrounding Ms. Clinton. The Wikileaks releases contain some pretty damaging information and Assange claims the worst is yet to come. If this is in fact true there is a chance that the U.S. will be left with Trump as the next President, which is a very disconcerting thought.

And that is the only real story here. One week ago I wrote Donald has a week to unbake his terrible polling numbers. It is one week later. Now, a nominee for one major political party spends 31 minutes attacking the other nominee as a long-term racist.

I admit, I don't think calling her a racist is the smartest thing to do, however, her policies are racist, supporting the BLM is seen by many realists as racist.

And the other nominee's party is silent. The Republican establishment has abandoned Donald J. Trump.

Nonsense!! They NEVER embraced him from the beginning, it's the voters that wanted him. Remember, the establishment tried to force-feed us Jeb.

This election is over. Top Republicans have abandoned Trump. The election for the Presidency is over.

It's not over yet, so until then, you or anyone else can't call it. I remember my uncle saying the same thing in 1980 and then his jaw dropped. But I will say this, this election cycle on both sides is nasty and disgusting, the entire mudslinging is just outrageous.

I agree with Peter Hart and Gingrich and others. It isn't going to be the debates that decide it as much as Charming President Trump replacing Trump the Insult Dog, for a few weeks at least. They are readying the troops for defeat....

Peter Hart, a Democrat and one of the country’s most respected pollsters, admitted on Friday that Donald Trump can win the White House if he has “one sane month” on the campaign trail.

After conducting a focus group of Wisconsin voters last night for the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Public Policy Center, Hart appeared on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily” and said voters “don’t trust Clinton to give them an honest answer and they don’t trust Trump to be a safe leader.”

According to Hart, voters have given Trump more chances than he deserves and will continue to do so because they are thirsting for change and do not trust Clinton at all. Voters in Hart’s focus group reportedly compared Clinton to a step-mother and said her dishonesty made their “blood boil.” “It’s not game over yet,” Hart said.

I actually do think 'hope and change' coming from a young African-American running for office after the Bushes had invaded Arab Gulf nations (to further enrich their family and family friend's, including the Al Saud's and Al Sabah's oil businesses?) and seriously damaged the US economy made great sense at the time and cannot be compared with 'I'll build a wall' and 'You're for us or you’re for the terrorists'.

No disagreement about the Bushes. I'm an equal opportunity warmonger despiser. The "hope and change" mantra may have made great sense, but that's about as far as it got. Of course the Reps would block Obama. It goes both ways. That's why "we" are tired of this one party system and are ready to give Trump a chance. I'm sure you can find other things to broaden your anti-Trump list. Keep going. I'm listening. But until you can prove that Trump is in the pockets of Wall Street, MIC, CFR, Soros, the Central Banksters, big Pharma, big Agri, big etc, I will stick with Trump. We all know Hillary is. If you're fine with that, fair enough. I'm not, and never will be.

"Trump is stuck with being Trump"

That's no problem, here's the problem: Hillary is stuck with being Hillary.

And this is interesting: "New Clinton Email Scandal: FBI Finds 15,000 Emails Hillary Clinton Didn't Give to State Department" ( H.A. Goodman on Youtube ) ( he ain't lyin' )

she'll be talking about real policies and topics, which she can discuss in great detail. There are few people anywhere who have her level of understanding of world and national politics.

Well, of course. That's obvious, how else could she accumulate so much money, if she didn't have the level of understanding on how to bribe dignitaries and the VIP?

The right wing crowd never gives up.

If the left won't, why the heck should the right?

Its is Obama is a Kenyan or Hillary is a traitor to her country, and on and on. They just love fake issues to get angry about as they basically want to be angry all the time. And Trump takes advantage of this weak mindedness. Fox news lies all the time to this crowd, they would not know the truth if it hit them in the head like a frying pan.

I'm sorry, this is the world of politics, what about the false and ludicrous accusations and bogus claims that Trump is a racist and as for being angry, if the right had 98% of the media in their pocket, the left would implode and rightfully so. FOX is not the problem, but it's a nice scapegoat for liberals. Maybe if they focused on the lies of the left, they could possibly park their bias at the gate.

Meanwhile Trump is walking back from his immigration stance (they are all rapists) and is now offering amnesty to long term illegal immigrants. The number one issue for the right wing crowd he now flip-flops on 70 days from the election. He has played his voters for saps. Ann Coulter is so angry at Trump for abandoning his tough immigration stance she is going more crazy than she was already. It is such a sad joke that anyone would so gullible as to believe anything Trump says at all, he is a 100% pure conman.

If you think Hillary is NOT going to flip flop on any of her......what exactly are her issues or policies? As for saps, Hillary and this is to her credit is the biggest scam artist, that makes Obama seem like a somewhat decent president. If anyone thinks Hillary is not going to take the people for a wild ride of the same old Washington Big Corporate politics and cozy up with all of her crooked insider friends is in for a very startling surprise.

People who think Hillary is good .are nuts

Seriously. If a conservative had done what she has the left would be in the streets night and day. The polling trend lines are in Trump's direction. All he needs to do now is continue to campaign fearlessly and let the chips fall where they may be,

Most voters are already decided. The electorate has accumulated enough information to come to a conclusion as to whom they prefer. Clinton leads national by 6-8%. Clinton leads even better in the key tipping point states. There is just not enough undecideds and not enough time.

That is why all the aggregate forecast sites have Clinton pummeling Trump.

Barring HRC taking a dump on stage while singing "These Old Legs, they ain't what they used to be" the debates will change nothing. More likely, Trump will blow it, and his numbers will cave, as 'moderate' Republicans abandon him and go for a split ticket.

Actually, the debates can change a lot, because it's the Independents that will always decide the votes and you still have a lot of "hmmmm, I dunno...." crowd out there.

Many on my side say "Ohhhhhhh, don't say that. It will depress turnout." I say, pashaw! We're wining. Not Charlie Sheen Winning. US after D Day winning. Secretariat pulling away with 8 lengths winning.

You said that and what happened in 2010 and 2014 and 1980 was a huge jaw dropper for many Democrats, just as 1992 for the GOP, you can't call it, no one can call it. A lot can change until the polls close, because you don't know who's a closet Trump supporter. I'm not ruling anything out. If more info comes out about her foundation or Benghazi or whatever this woman has under her sleeves (and it's a lot) it might change things, maybe, maybe not, we will see.

Scandals behind her? Yes indeed. And paying for her campaign, too.

"Madame President"

Not until Ivanka is sworn in after one or two terms of Donald.

"Trump should release his health records. And his tax returns."

Or, Hillary should admit her wrongdoings and turn herself in to the police.
