“Or honestly, we’ve all wasted our time.”

And Donnie`s money, hopefully all of it will have evaporated after his failed bid which is looking increasingly likely. And then the lawsuits will come I hope. How sweet the day....... but no letting up! Last chance to keep this extremely dangerous, racist, vile, narcissistic fraud out of the White House. Vote BLUE!

"As Clinton took the stage in Pittsburgh, supporters yelled out, “We love you” — an unusual occurrence for the Democratic presidential candidate who has sometimes struggled to connect with voters."

I wonder why...

“I love you all, too. Absolutely,” Clinton said with a slight chuckle."

Yeah, she loves 'em all right, lol.

It will be very interesting to see how accurate the polls have been. One unprecedented feature of this election cycle has been that support for Trump has been seen not only as a bad choice, but also as being socially repugnant. I wonder if there may actually be quite a few closet Trump supporters who haven't dared to admit this in polite company or to a pollster but will end up voting for him.

I guess all I can do is wish my American friends good luck. Millions of people will wake up tomorrow with either a shrug of their shoulders at the foregone conclusion or feel absolutely sickened by an unexpected surprise. Neither seems very desirable.

It will all come down to who non HC & non-DT supporters vote for tomorrow as they represent the vast majority of American ppl.

Naomi Klein, a bernie supporter, summed things up pretty well last night urging fellow democrats/bernie supporters to vote HC, get the win THEN put pressure on HC from day 1. My thoughts exactly.

Trump may be no saint, but I'll take him over that lying corrupt nasty woman who jeopardized national security.

Latest WikiLeaks Reveals Clinton Critics Were Right All Along Clinton's private server was a serious concern among staff

For years, Clinton partisans have blindly defended every criticism of the Clinton Foundation by pointing to the good work the charity has done. But the WikiLeaks emails from John Podesta, Hillary Clinton‘s campaign chair, have confirmed nearly every criticism of the Clinton Foundation, debunking the claim that it is solely a philanthropic endeavor run by the Clintons.

Jeff Stein, a writer at the generally pro-Clinton Vox, rescinded previous claims he made that the Clinton Foundation wasn’t used to personally enrich the family’s wealth after WikiLeaks released an email revealing Chelsea Clinton used the foundation to direct investors to her husband’s hedge fund and treated Clinton Foundation funds as a personal bank account.

-10 ( +4 / -14 )

Forgive us if we take every one of those claims with a pound of salt Lizz. When pressed for supporting evidence in your previous claims, they always turn out to be either incorrect entirely or filled with half truths. You haven't shown a great ability to fact check that which you post.

Interesting that Trump's affair while married to his current wife hasn't been given that much press. They are reporting it on the Japanese news now. You have to wonder who he paid to get the National Enquirer to stifle the story, usually they are the first to jump on a story. Instead they bought the story and tried to keep it quiet. It didn't work though, as now it's out there and known:

SO now it is Obamas top priority to get Clinton elected!? If this, wikileaks, project veritas, clinton foundation pay for play, the clinton body count, taking millions of dollars from banks, taking saudi money than claiming womans rights, clinton foundation keeping over 90% of contributions, email scandal, top aide Huma`s mother being one of the heads for the muslim sisterhood, connections to pedophiles and human traffickers (Laura Selsby), NO FLY ZONE! is Syria, open border policy,

This has to be the worst election in history, I mean these two are the best candidates !!??? Both are pathetic at their attempts to pretend they can relate to the average American, they both look like the red witch from game of thrones in her true form,this is a truly sad and disturbing time when you have to vote for either one of these two.

if she wins its only because of election fraud. no one is coming to her rallies. americans want her in jail. if she wins impeachment proceedings will start the same day. of the thousands of americans i know personally, only one is voting for her.

Naw, Obama has already done that and now after an 8year beating, we could possibly get his Scion in the WH and drag the country deeper into the Washington cesspool.

But hey, I'm good if the GOP can at least retain the Senate should Hillary win. I'll be able to relax a bit more.

-10 ( +4 / -14 )

No comments from the right about Trump cheating on his current wife, and how that relates to him harping on Hillary for her husband's indiscretions of two decades ago? Bass? Lizz? JeffreyDormer? Are you all just going to ignore this and hope it will not be noticed?

The day has finally come I wonder after Trump loses how his supporters will react...Like total freaks I suppose claiming conspiracy theories post and reposting links the ridiculous.Oh my its nothing different from what we see now..Anyhow, the World will be a safer place without Trump near the presidency.

I find it amazing how after going on so much about Bill's indiscretions, how the right is absolutely silent when faced with the fact that Trump cheated on his current wife.

I wonder how she feels about this. Will his marriage be worth the cost of running for president to him?

Of course she may stay with him. After all, if he can grope women without repercussion simply because he's rich, I suppose he can probably cheat with repercussion for the same reasons.

The GOP's dirty little secret: Kansas.

http://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-hiltzik-kansas-economy-20161031-story.html

The Kansas experience is important because the notion that dramatic tax cuts pay for themselves by spurring economic growth still unaccountably has an allure for conservative policymakers, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

In case you missed it, Kansas got a fringe right governor who sold them on the idea that deep tax cuts would spur growth. Instead, growth has lagged behind the US while their budget now has a massive hole from lost revenue.

How did they react? But raising sales taxes and other sin taxes, burdens that disporportiinatly affect the working man. All those tax cuts for the rich stay in place, though.

Maybe Trump is better than establishment Republicans, but it's hard to tell.

In Japan it is time to play Auld Lang Syne. In the USA it is time to sing "Turn off the lights, it's time to go home." The more southern the accent and the slower it is sung, the more meaningful it is. There will be a new president on Wednesday, USA time.

" There was a protester and a protester that likes us. And what happened is they wouldn't put the cameras on him. They kept the cameras on Obama... He was talking to a protester, screaming at him, really screaming at him. By the way, if I spoke the way Obama spoke to that protester, they would say he became unhinged."

GOP strategist: Clinton will win -- but Congress won't work with her

"Unfortunately, instead of seeing this as an opportunity for Republicans to do a little self-introspection, a chance to look beyond ourselves, and to rise to the moment -- which would help us grow nationally," said Weaver, "the instinct will be to throw landmines, not to govern and to cause problems above and beyond being just the normal loyal opposition ideologically."

Gee, Jeffery, you and your cabal seem to have one big chip on your shoulder for the media. This happened at Trump's most recent rally in a Scranton school gymnasium:

"See the dishonest people back there?" Trump told the crowd, repeating a staple of his campaign speech that prompted a more aggressive reaction than the usual round of boos.

"CNN sucks," the audience hollered over and over. "CNN sucks."

"New York Times is a total lie," Trump said, taking aim at a newspaper that has chronicled his dodging of income taxes and unwanted sexual advances toward women. "It is so false ... such lies. Such fabrication."

As the media left the gym, a man holding a toddler in one arm thrust the other toward reporters and photographers, waving his fist and shouting "traitor" at each one of them.

"You're all traitors!" he screamed.

So sad that you seem to be losing Fox as a reliable echo-chamber. Breitbart should get you through, though, until Trump TV is up and running. Meanwhile, Melania Trump can give up her plan to battle bullying on social media as first lady. (Seriously - that's the only thing I'll miss by Trump losing: the spectacle of this man's wife making this her agenda.)

Donald Trump is a symptom, not a cause, of what ails America in general, he is reaction to a change in the relationship between the governed and the government, and a healthy well earned distrust of the political class.

Unbelievable. Trump the Psychopath hopes to create a revolutionary movement after the Election Day. The question should be asked is how much money from the election accounts left? Did he use all the election funđs) Dieu seul le sait. Don't forget that Crooked Trump didn't pay income tax for about 18 years. "Transparency" doesn't exist in Trump's daily vocabulary. Let's hope that the Attorney General will appoint a Special Prosecutor to look at his possible connections with the enemies. And congratulations to the would be first Lady President of the USA.

Well, the racists in North Carolina are definitely out in full. THey've even kept a 100 year old black woman from voting because another voter challenged her right to vote -- since she is 100 years old and could not run about to prove that she is valid, as she has been for a very long time, her registration could not be given back to her and she was kept from voting. Same goes with a HUGE number of African American voters -- they are being challenged thanks to the backwards laws of the state, and the GOP having shut down all but ONE voting station per country -- the bare minimum by law -- leading to thousands being unable to move the huge distance to vote. So, yes, the vote is being rigged -- by Trump and the GOP. What a great nation you guys have!

So, yes, the vote is being rigged -- by Trump and the GOP.

Smith, guess you'd heard that long lines at an early-voting poll station in Nevada led authorities to extend its operating hours. Now, in a healthy democracy, citizens would applaud their counterparts in their efforts to make their votes heard despite their hectic days and whatever inconveniences arise. The head of the Nevada Republican Party, Michael McDonald? - meh, not so much. He said at a Trump rally two days ago:

Last night, in Clark County, they kept a poll open 'til 10 o'clock at night so a certain group could vote. The polls are supposed to close at 7. This was kept open until 10. Yeah, you feel free right now? You think this is a free and easy election? That's why it's important.

Trump apparently caught on to this outrageous effort to enable hardworking citizens to vote and hours later chimed in:

It's being reported that certain key Democratic polling locations in Clark County were kept open for hours and hours beyond closing time to bus and bring democratic voters in. Folks, it's a rigged system. It's a rigged system and we're going to beat it. We're going to beat it.

A note for both of these American patriots: Polling locations are non-partisan, and voters who have already lined before the polls closed are commonly allowed to vote at any location across the country. Imagine if poll doors had been bolted in a reliably conservative area simply due to an arbitrary time limit - there would have been outrage! But then, that would not have involved "a certain group" (wink, wink). To answer McDonald's question, "Yeah, you feel free right now?" - yes, I do, more so than if you'd disenfranchised hardworking Americans.

6 ( +9 / -3 )

Nope. The image of the US has only improved in the world in the past 8 years, and the enemies of the US fear the US just as much as they ever did.

That's fine, but at this point, most Americans could care less what the world thinks. If they are happy with the current optics of the US, good for them, doesn't help us, just like, I could care less about European politics for the most part.

You should step out of the bubble occasionally just to see that most Americans just don't give a darn.

Yes, it does matter what the world thinks, unless you think the US economy is unconnected to markets elsewhere.

It doesn't matter as far as the election itself is concerned or will the Democrats try busing in Germans, Dutch, the Swedes and every other European to take part in our election.

"Clinton, Trump blitz through battleground states Monday in final bid to energize supporters" ... ... ... I'm sure glad supporters are energized now. By the end of this election week things will be back to normal - lethargy among the masses and full steam ahead for HRC after her "landslide" win. (which will mean less than 50% of the electorate - that means those eligible to vote not the number who have actually voted for those who don't understand the distinction) Of course, Bernie's "Our Revolution" will continue, but with HRC's election that will be relegated to the Democratic Party's equivalent of McDonald's PlayPlace. Conflict with Russia over Syria will loom and that will energize the military and accompanying industries. HRC will be able to show she can make "hard" choices although they won't be hard on her. I'll have to spend energy on calculating just how far my house is from the nearest military base. My family and I could be energized, too. Or is that vaporized?

Ahhh, the thoughts of the funny liberals wishful thinking, the Unicornverse is expanding and I'm thinking not all of the liberals in the US can fit under its umbrella.

Trump TV will have the Hannity's, Limbaugh's, Alex Jones and other proven liars further riling up angry white nationalists. No doubt the gun industry will be primary advertisers.

If ANYONE is a liar it's not them or do you have any on the right passing notes to Trump to get him ready for a national debate. These are the embodiment of what the radical left represents! By the way, where are Donna Brazile, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Rick Sanchez, Roland Martin, Ed Schultz, Keith Olbermann, Stephanie Powers??? All this radical libs are pretty much done, off the air and gone off to greener...or browner pastures, thankfully.

Anyway, for me, the most important thing in all of this, Obama is finally gone, the dream is almost here and I pray the GOP keeps the Senate. Everything else, I can deal with!

On the eve of the complete collapse of modern conservatism, Bret Stephens at the Wall Street Journal (of all places!) has made some very keen observations, including this:

most conservative intellectuals have proved incapable of self-examination or even simple observation. Donald Trump is a demagogue. Period. The fervor of his crowds recalls Nasser’s Egypt. His convictions are illiberal. His manners are disgusting. His temper is frightening. It ought to have been the job of thoughtful conservatives in this season to point this out, time and again. If they can’t do that, what good are they?

Given that most Sander's supporters have been backing HRC since the convention, I think post-election the Democratic Party will be reformed and will emerge stronger than it has been. My hope is the Party power base will be broadened and more inclusive, and that those who have been at the top will have the sense to recognize the need for them to relinquish control so the Democratic Party will be governed more democratically.

In which case Trump would be ahead in the polls. In fact he's still trailing in most. So isn't calling it a close tie just a bit disingenuous? Just like Trump claiming President Obama was screaming at a protester when in actual fact he wasn't doing anything of the sort? But the actual result will be a better indicator than the polls.

I know you use words differently from most people, but the dictionary meaning of majority is: a number that is greater than half of a total

YouGov/The Economist poll conducted Oct. 31-Nov. 1, 93 percent of those polled who preferred Sanders have either already voted or plan to vote. The poll also found that 68 percent of likely voters who backed Sanders plan to vote for Clinton From Chicago Tribune Nov. 8, 2016

They may not be happy doing so, but they realize how frightening a Trump presidency would be.

No. You guys really need to fact check yourselves. Powell's email says that according to the NYP (New York Post?) Bill is still 'd***ing' secretaries. Nothing about Hillary's knowledge, nothing about two at a time, and nothing that suggests he even has any first-hand knowledge about it.

Just another post that shows how disgusting the right is getting.

It's CRUNCH time, guys ! In a little less than three hours (USA, EST) the polls will begin to open across the nation. What kind of POTUS will we choose ? The best predictor of future behavior is past prevalent behavior. Surely you can recall the coarse language, the negativity, the innuendo and the fact-free statements. BUT don't vote against him. Vote FOR HER. FOR HER life-long history of helping ALL people. FOR HER stance on issues important to families, and FOR HER to be the first female POPTUS. It's HER time ! Vote FOR HER for president today. ! 1/20/17 - "Madame President" !

The comment was about the ignorant and incorrect use of the phrase 'could care less' when the opposite, 'couldn't care less' is what was meant. The affirmative 'could care less' is always wrong.

Oh, I see you wouldn't care to support that statement.

I did. Where is he? Not in the running and why is that? What was the main reason Sanders failed? Who stood in his way? What was her name? Which party was she affiliated with? By the way, Where is Debbie?

In which case Trump would be ahead in the polls. In fact he's still trailing in most. So isn't calling it a close tie just a bit disingenuous?

Not at all.

Just like Trump claiming President Obama was screaming at a protester when in actual fact he wasn't doing anything of the sort?

Maybe he was yelling at him. Hey, even Obama has a bad side.

They may not be happy doing so, but they realize how frightening a Trump presidency would be.

Or even worse, a Hillary presidency, shutter the thought!

Finally, the circus will soon be over, one way or another. And Hillary and Trump will be in their home bases both in Manhattan NY just blocks away from each other! Imagine the security headache, lol

(BTW, this isn't the first time both major US candidates are based in the same state.)

Still, it's amazing how much the world gets to know about US elections. What other country in the world where we find out so much about who and what's going on? Do we even know who's running against whom in other elections and what they stand for?

Also, in the US, vote-swapping is legal as long as nothing else is swapped but votes. Basically what happens for example: a Hillary voter in the blue state of NY where Hillary is expected to win handily, agrees to swap votes with a (3rd-party candidate) Jill Stein voter in the battle state of Arizona. So the # of votes don't change, just the place where it's voted. It helps the Hillary voter win in Arizona where a few votes could make a difference, while the Stein voter gets more exposure in NY.

(There's actually apps for doing this. But of course, one can't really know if the other person will keep their promise.)

Anyways, there's a lot of good deals for those people voting today - from free food in restaurants to big discounts in commercial rides. Just show ya voted and ya get the instant savings, lol

The only reason Trump has a prayer at this stage is because of the diabolical timing of Comey's blundering into the fray. Comey has now belatedly admitted it was all nothing, of course, but the damage has been done, to some extent. With luck enough people will revert to their pre-Comey instincts and realise they can't really have this brainless pampered brat at the controls, and sense will prevail.

Hey, if we compare that to the mistakes, lies and the Clinton Network News tells as well as the National Barack Channel and the retractions they had to do, that little hiccup is nothing. Unlike liberals, conservatives don't believe in chopping off someone at the neck for a minor infraction. Liberals on the other hand, one mistake and they want to disembowel you.

Do you live here ? I tried voting an hour after the polls opened, around 7 am, but there was already a line already down the hall and out the door. No place to park in sight. At that time of the morning I’ve never seen more than maybe five people ahead of me. I've never seen anything like it. Says a lot about enthusiasm for Trump in a state that isn’t even considered a battleground...

Lizz, you might want to check to see if your state has a Republican legislature. If so, they have been closing down a lot of polling places and creating long lines at the ones that do remain open. Here is Arizona we had the same issue with lines around the block because the GOP decided to close 60% of the polling places. Much harder the working Moms, students, and the elerdely to participate but you should be fine if you aren't one of them.

They also have inane laws in states like North Carolina where any voter can challenge another's registration, even allowing in one case a 100 year old woman to be denied because a coward suggested she was not legal. Do you think a 100 year old can run around and have it reinstated so that she can run miles and miles to the only station in the county not closed by these bigots?

If the vote is rigged, it's by the GOP without a doubt.

"But CNN said it does the same with Republicans as part of efforts to present the best interviews."

THey've even kept a 100 year old black woman from voting because another voter challenged her right to vote -- since she is 100 years old and could not run about to prove that she is valid,

The incident occurred weeks before even early voting was allowed, and she has in fact voted.

But this perfectly illustrates the very real problem with competing against democrats. Ultimately the debate becomes not about facts, but about the narrative. Lies are communicated as fact, through a manipulated media, with enough frequency that people start to believe them.

They are showing an inability to leave behind Alinsky’s tactics that were intended for the weak against the strong. Civil discourse suffers as a result.

Trump began his campaign with lies and he ended it with lies:

The Republican nominee held his last two rallies at arenas in New Hampshire and Michigan, and in his inimitable fashion, Trump played up how large a crowd came out to see him. Appearing by phone on Fox and Friends, Trump proclaimed in the span of a few minutes that 21,000 people and then 28,000 were in attendance in Grand Rapids in the wee hours on Tuesday morning. He later said that 22,000 had turned out a couple hours earlier in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Aside from his claims growing by one-third while he was talking on the phone, Trump is almost certainly wrong on both accounts. The maximum capacity for the SNHU Arena in Manchester is under 12,000 people, according to its website. And the Detroit Free Press reported that the Grand Gallery in Grand Rapids holds just 4,200 people, citing the fire marshal.

Results from Guam are in. Guam has been an accurate bellwether for predicting presidential elections for the past 32 years. This year has Hillary beating Trump 72% to 24%. May this result continue through the rest of the USA.
