The Republicans invented swiftboating and birtherism, and now their candidate is claiming that he is a victim of a campaign of lies.

Aside from the fact that he is on tape bragging about everything that he now claims is a lie and conspiracy.

You Christian right wingers, how can you vote for such an immoral loser. Obviously he has attacked women for decades because he thought he was entitled to do so as he was a celebrity. He is everything thing you claim to hate, divorced three times, probably an atheist, corrupt to the core yet you support this loser. On the other hand for 8 years Obama has never once been a target of the press on sexual misconduct or anything else immoral. He has kept the country out of failed wars and rebuilt the economy after it was destroyed by the Bush losers. He is everything you want in a President, deeply religious, but yet he is reviled and Trump is revered. What is the difference between the two, hum, I just cannot put my finger on it. Been married only once and not three times, no, cares about his kids while Trump left parenting to his wives, no that is not it. What could it be? Anyone have a wild guess on what makes Obama different from Trump? The support is really a black and white issue. But I just cannot figure it out. Any regressive types want to explain this? Please white, I mean write, your reply. You can use black humour if you like.

He offered no evidence discrediting the new reports

Of course not. He has nothing, no proof, no policies, no ideas, no credibility, no moral sense, no idea of the real world, no honesty, no personality, no decency, no billions, just... 100% of nothing. Like the nobody Donald is.

So the Republican candidate is a sexual predator, and the Democratic candidate is in bed with Washington insiders and big banks. What kind of bizarro world are we living in? If you were to tell me this was going to happen 2 years ago, I would have bet it was the other way around. I can't wait for this whole thing to be over.

Fred Unbiased media, a relic in the good ol us of a.

Do you mean like back in the good ol' days when Hearst was claiming the Maine was sunk by the Spanish?

When I was a kid in the way back I had three different newspaper routes. Each time I'd go house to house to collect payment I'd hear how biased whichever paper I was collecting for was. In trying to get new subscriptions I'd hear how biased that paper was. My parents got two newspapers and griped at how biased they BOTH were. They subscribed to two national news magazines and griped about their biases.

You rightists have bought yet another rightist lie. There has always been bias in media. And there's no more biased media today than the ones rightists read and sem to believe meme for meme.

Critical thinking has always been required of anyone reading anything. Rightists inability to understand that and claim anyone who thinks different from them has been manipulated are showing a lack of critical thinking skills. And great bias.

You Christian right wingers, how can you vote for such an immoral loser.

How can Atheists vote for Hillary? Heck, how can any person vote for a person that is a chronic liar?

Obviously he has attacked women for decades because he thought he was entitled to do so as he was a celebrity.

Yes, that was wrong, so what about Hillary and her thinking she has the right to do as she pleases when it comes to government and secret documents and intel?

He is everything thing you claim to hate, divorced three times, probably an atheist, corrupt to the core yet you support this loser.

Hillary has sheltered her husband that had zero regard for women, raped, made advances, used the power of his political office to intimidate and strike fear in them, which today persists to many of his accusers. He also accused and ridiculed them, harassed them and called them liars, she knew all this and stuck by him, lying in order to protect him.

On the other hand for 8 years Obama has never once been a target of the press on sexual misconduct or anything else immoral. He has kept the country out of failed wars and rebuilt the economy after it was destroyed by the Bush losers.

Obama just let the country fall to **** which is worse than having an affair to the majority of people. By the way, under Obama, how are race relations these days? He's going to leave with a $10 Trillion deficit and a growing war and the left want to talk about Bush? LOL

He is everything you want in a President, deeply religious, but yet he is reviled and Trump is revered. What is the difference between the two, hum, I just cannot put my finger on it. Been married only once and not three times, no, cares about his kids while Trump left parenting to his wives, no that is not it.

Actually, No! He's the embodiment of what you really don't want in a president. Yes, his supporters will carry the water and bow to the anointed one, but for the majority of Americans, the one true and wonderful thing about this election is, Obama is out. Out of all this mess, there is at least SOME good news for a lot of us. Also, to say Trump doesn't care about his kids is beyond garbage, say what you want about the man, his kids are solid, extremely educated, know the issues, eloquent and in many aspects smarter than their father, that didn't come out of thin air....but nice try.....

What could it be? Anyone have a wild guess on what makes Obama different from Trump? The support is really a black and white issue. But I just cannot figure it out. Any regressive types want to explain this? Please white, I mean write, your reply. You can use black humour if you like.

I think the difference is, Obama talks to people and tells people what HE thinks and imposes HIS opinion and world viewpoint as to the right way and if you oppose him or disagree with him or challenge him then you are his enemy. He likes to treat people like kids and thinks we are all too stupid to make decisions for ourselves, not to mention, the man is a part of the Washington elite that believes in controlling all of us. Trump on the other hand, NOT a politician, understands that the system is rigged, wants to demolish it and give the country back to the people. wants to focus on strengthening the shrinking middle class and this is the reason why Trump rallies were sold out and they had to turn people back and Hillary had to deal with a few people and work hard on making sure they don't fall asleep.

Many Americans, particularly the middle class, aren’t feeling improvements as much as they should be. Obama and the Democrats failure of minimum wage legislation and wage equality laws for much of it, and the trickle down low wages. Hillary Clinton will continue the low wages for middle class and the poor.

@sfjp330 - Agreed! Trump has nothing and is pretty much a buffoon. Is he stupid? I do not think so but certainly not fit for President. Hey let's look on the bright side....Clinton has more of the same which includes decimation of the middle class as well as an increase in the gap between rich and poor

@wontond,

Now people are guilty based on no proof and/or soundbites. The collusion between Clinton`s campaign and the media is so corrupt. I guess Americans still want that.

Clinton started on the dirt. Just policy talk is best but the media has tons of relevant information that they never talk about. Only hearsay about sex scandals.

Most of them are either too left as now we have found out by the latest Wikileaks and finally we finally know what everyone was thinking, the majority of them are in the tank for Hillary, this is reason why most Americans don't trust the MSM. For if they did their job respectively and fairly they would be on both sides equally and NOT just one-sided, pure and simple.

You conveniently leave out what happened right before these women came forward: Trump said that he has never sexually assaulted anyone during the presidential debate--after being caught on tape bragging about doing just that.

The real question you should be asking is why most women who are assaulted or harassed remain silent to begin with. And when you figure out the answer to that, ponder how that might be compounded by the fact that your attacker/harasser is wealthy, famous, or otherwise powerful.

wontondOCT. 14, 2016 - 08:39AM JST So the Republican candidate is a sexual predator,

Bill Clinton has had numerous affairs during his marriage. Several women have also accused him of sexual harassment and sexual assault. Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Clinton of raping her in a Little Rock hotel room in 1978, has said that Hillary Clinton “tried to silence” her several weeks after the alleged rape.

Obama ducked his opportunity to call out Americans to a higher standard, to work hard, value education, protect women and cherish family, be responsible for oneself and also help others, especially amongst his race, instead, a lame liberal elitist arrives to pay back his idiot horde with government funds, so practically speaking, he been a lame duck since the beginning.

I have to admit, I take the claims with a grain of salt, as they aren't proven, and there is plenty of motivation for people to lie about it. It's plausible that these women didn't say anything previously, as Trump is powerful and they didn't want to challenge him, but the video tape of him talking about assaulting women made it easier. But it's also plausible that some people hate him, and the video made for a good opportunity to make up something that didn't happen, or exaggerate it. I have no idea which it is, and at this moment, there is no way to know.

But if it is fake, Trump deserves ever bit he gets after pushing the BS birther campaign for five years after it was entirely debunked. And if it's real, Trump deserves every bit he gets and more, for sexually assaulting women.

In the same way that Republican representatives, senators, governors (and candidates) are scuttling off the sinking ship, the few remaining Trumptyites in the real world seriously need to reconsider their choices. The man needs to be thoroughly disinfected before being left out for pick-up.

He promised to sue his media critics

He will never do this because of the discovery phase of a trail. His 'media critics' would be able to expose his entire history of sexual indiscretion. They'd also be able to subpoena things like the video from The Apprentice, Trump's entire history of litigation and settlements and most importantly, women who may have been silenced by legal threats, for example, who would be compelled to testify and Trump wouldn't be able to sue them for their depositions.

-3 ( +7 / -10 )

Hard to feel any sympathy for Trump. He said he does these things and now women are confirming it. Pretty hard to deny. In the circles he was in (Miss Universe etc), I wouldn't be surprised if he eclipses Cosby's number of accusers. It's the last thing Trump needs less than a month before the election. The debate now only needs to be whether he's going to lose by 8% or 10% or even 15%. He's toast. Looking forward to his last ditch effort in the 3rd debate! He's going to take random, ridiculous rants and ramblings to a whole new level!

'It's obvious to everyone with more than one brain cell that the political system is rigged. The press which was supposed to be neutral and report facts but is 99% liberals, covers for Hillary and attacks Christians and conservatives which constitute nearly half of the US population. Then you have the UN chief, Wall street, anyone with a financial interest, openly using their influence not for the welfare of the US but for their own pockets. So yeah, the election is corrupted. And yes the country is divided. Lets see, who has been running it for the last 8 years? MMMmmm could they have any responsibility for where we find ourselves? Of course not, it's everyone elses fault. After all thats what liberals do, blame everyone one else. Win or lose Trump has opened a few peoples eyes up to the horrible mess we are in. It is inevitable that the system will come crashing down, maybe we just have to wait another 4 years.'

Bass: give the country back to the people. wants to focus on strengthening the shrinking middle class

Honest question here, but what in Trump's past makes you believe he is interested in looking out for the middle class and giving the country back to the people? He has a history of not paying workers, bragging about making money off of (middle class) people during the housing collapse, taking money from people by selling them a "university", the list goes on.

So, what exactly is it that you've seen that makes you believe he's suddenly a changed man? After that, I'd like to get a comparison of Trump to Obama and Hillary.

If people would be honest and just put ideology on the back burner, Obama is a bad president for one reason and one reason alone. He has no concept of leading and negotiating. Reagan found a way to sit down with O'Neil. Clinton worked things out with Gingrich and BOTH presidents were successful and the country moved forward. This is the pitfall of electing a community activist.

And I don't remember any of the media attacking Christians.

Trump on the other hand, NOT a politician, understands that the system is rigged, wants to demolish it and give the country back to the people.

Trump is a wannabe dictator with the maturity level of a 4-year-old. The way he would treat the presidency would be the way he treats people, especially women: as ways to feed his bloated ego. He does not understand democracy or the will of the people. He likes attention, and demands to get his own way.

The man has made no indication that he would serve in cooperation with anyone. Trump sees the presidency as the ultimate position from which he can do what he wants (e.g. appoint a prosecutor to go after his political foes, restore anti-constitutional stop and frisk policies, reinstate waterboarding "and worse", etc.).

I repeat. Trump wants to be dictator, and his supporters love the idea. Gives them a collective chubby.

The deal he made with Iran is a big deal. You and the Republicans might not agree, but those in national security and the rest of the world agree.

Your claims are baseless.

And look how he treats anyone who dares to say anything negative about them. He mocks them. He preaches violence against them. He has them removed from his presence. He sues them.

Is this what you want in a president who is going to have not just people opposing him, but an official opposition (internal) and countries that hate America (external)? And some people here think he won't be a warmonger? The guy has already said he would start a war against soldiers on a boat flipping off American soldiers. And people call Clinton a hawk. She may be a hawk, but if she is, it's a calculated one. He's just one who can't handle affronts to his ego, and would react violently if someone went against it. Well here's news Trump - millions of people across the world, if not billions, hate you. And here's news alt-righties - he's not going to be able to handle that hate if he's elected. Do you really want a guy with a temper having his thumb on the nuclear codes?

I see so many saying 'Hillary is a con, Trump is an idiot, which do you think is better?'.

The one who isn't going to start a nuclear war because someone calls him a moron is the one I think is better.

This is one of the most successful bubbles created by the GOP working with right wing media. The GOP is so broken that they can't put forth any policy proposals because of all of the infighting, yet the bubble dwellers believe this same group of people were in a compromising mood with Obama.

There are times when I can see someone putting out a false narrative that they don't believe in order to support their party. Other times you suspect that maybe they really don't know any better. And sometimes you just can't tell...

The Reb who said that Trump supporters are "childless single men who masturbate to anime" was 100% right, because no self respecting man who is married to a woman or who has a daughter could possibly support Trump, unless they support sexual assault against their own family, which would make them less than human

And Donald Trump is the Second Coming (in the biblical, not the locker room, sense).

Here's the New York Times response (Hi, @Turbostat) to the Saviour (of Christian and conservative values) and his libel claim:

The essence of a libel claim, of course, is the protection of one's reputation. Mr. Trump has bragged about his non-consensual sexual touching of women. He has bragged about intruding on beauty pageant contestants in their dressing rooms. He acquiesced to a radio host's request to discuss Mr. Trump's own daughter as "a piece of ass." Multiple women not mentioned in our article have publicly come forward to report on Mr. Trump's unwanted advances. Nothing in our article has had the slightest effect on the reputation that Mr. Trump, through his own words and actions, has already created for himself.

Wow. Trump's latest speech was one for the ages. Whether cravenly dishonest or in fact this insane, he does not belong anywhere near the White House. Some choice sections:

For those who control the levers of power in Washington...our campaign represents a true existential threat like they haven't seen before. This is not simply another four-year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not we the people reclaim control over our government.

The Clinton machine is at the center of this power structure. We've seen this first hand in the WikiLeaks documents, in which Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends and her donors....Honestly, she should be locked up. Should be locked up.

This election will determine whether we are a free nation or whether we have only the illusion of democracy, but are in fact controlled by a small handful of global special interests rigging the system....Anyone who challenges their control is deemed a sexist, a racist, a xenophobe, and morally deformed. They will attack you, they will slander you, they will seek to destroy your career and your family, they will seek to destroy everything about you, including your reputation. They will lie, lie, lie, and then again they will do worse than that, they will do whatever is necessary. The Clintons are criminals, remember that. They're criminals.

Hmm. So Clinton is apparently conniving with some secret cabal of international bankers (dog whistle: Protocols of Zion) to strip the US of its sovereignty and enslave its citizens. True madness.

His supporters are lapping it up, of course. The aftermath of the election is truly worrisome. How can any true Trumpian join a "loyal opposition" after this type of crazed rhetoric?

I completely understand the disdain for Trump and those who are against him. I agree that his presidency would be a disaster. However I do not understand why people continue to believe that Hillary Clinton will help the middle or lower class. I would much rather see someone like Bernie Sanders (in spite of some of the fiscal faults with his ideas) as the Democratic candidate. Again it seems one must be all in for Clinton or there is no room for discussion with some of her supporters.

The middle and lower class have not done well recently and this is not only Obama's fault or not only Bush's fault....this has been ongoing since the 90s (Those that blame Bush seem to forget Barnie Frank's (he was chairman of the house financial services committee) testimony right before the failure of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac - those that blame Obama ignore he came into his Presidency with the deck stacked against him).

I consider myself a "classical liberal" leaning conservative on fiscal issues and I do not see either candidate representative of these ideals.

It is amazing how divided the U.S. has become, which is a shame. Americans seem to be divided in almost all regards. In Charlotte, which has a black chief of police, after a black police officer shot a black perpetrator the reaction among the black community was to beat the crap out of white people. At some political rallies there has been violence against supporters of the opposite candidate. On web-sites such as this people call each other pretty disgusting names (saying "Trump supporters are "childless single men who masturbate to anime" was 100% right"). Really?

It seems the ability for Americans (or not only Americans?) to disagree in a rationale manner has somehow disappeared in the past few years.

It would be nice to get a viable 3rd political party into the picture (for those that disagree I would really like to hear why this would not be good) as the 3rd party may help alleviate some of these issues.

He has never had an interest in working with a bipartisan congress.

Sure he did, in the first half of his first term, when the democrats could have put through anything, he made a solid effort to work bipartisanly. But the right had no interest in that, because they were bitter than he won the election.

This is another case of the right not being willing to work with him at all, then blaming him for not working with them. You cannot move forward with someone whose only goal is to pull you back.

And I noticed you entirely skipped over my points about Chump starting a war over his ego.

The GOP are not praising Trump, quite the opposite.

Honest question here, but what in Trump's past makes you believe he is interested in looking out for the middle class and giving the country back to the people?

Because he's been disgusted with the direction of the country for a very, very long time now. Second, going by Hillary's record over the last 40 years, there isn't any indication other than the woman wanting to line her pockets with more money and BS the public and taking it as far as she can.

He has a history of not paying workers, bragging about making money off of (middle class) people during the housing collapse, taking money from people by selling them a "university", the list goes on.

That's one side, I also heard the other side of people saying the opposite. So it just depends on what you believe. There are two sides to every story

So, what exactly is it that you've seen that makes you believe he's suddenly a changed man? After that, I'd like to get a comparison of Trump to Obama and Hillary.

I don't want him to change, I told you Numerous times, I'm tired of the corrupt Washington elite.

Americans need to consider whether they wanted to dump Trump for having disgusting and immature fantasy talk. It does not like Cliton crime which has jeprodised national security. Cliton means more wars, more debt and higher unemployment.

Cliton can not stand on her foot for a long time. She will take countless sick leaves when she becomes the president. Electing Cliton will be like paying blank checks for someone who talks a lot and doing almost nothing.

While it might be true that nowadays media tend to be less biased than in the past, Trump cannot blame the media as he is the one who first came up with the comments about women (what he wants to do when... etc. etc.) and has been set on this path for quite some time now.

I totally agree with sfjp330, I cannot understand what you are getting at.

Clinton wants to continue Obama`s handy work. Lets talk a moment to reflect.....

Healthcare has increased, in 2017 it will become unaffordable to many.

Small businesses are damaged by Obamacare and can only hire part time workers.

Since 2009 more manufacturing jobs that supported inner city minorities have left the country as well as flight captial thanks to "Tax the Rich" mentality aka PANAMA PAPERS

USA is now in a new cold war with Russia, stand offs with China, supporting Saudi genocidal attacks on Yemen, left a power vaccum in Iraq and bombed Libya into a failed stated that created a TERROR ARMY and a refugee crisis comparable to WW2, 15 years at war in Afganistan with record breaking OPIUM production, constant drone strikes in Pakistan with absolutely NO RESULTS, illegal immigrant crisis with Central Americans fleeing to the US since the ATF armed all the drug cartels via Project Fast and Furious, did I miss something from the Nobel Peace President?

Militarized training and equipment for local police agencies which has now led to a plague of police brutality, highjacked by monopolized media agencies to manipulate race relations to further divide the country.

Doubling the national debt during a ZERO%! interest rate WITHOUT REBUILDING the manufacturing industry due to stiffling regulations under the pretense of Climate Change.

TTIP & TPP which will give corporations the SAME LEGAL POWER AS A COUNTRY, except a corporation has no borders. Guess who gets stuck on the bottom of that no tariff pyramid....

Well at least now I can use whatever washroom I want to! GOOD JOB OBAMA! and so many want to continue this madness through Clinton?

To make it clear again- Obama/Clinton are globalist. Globalist do not care about ordinary people. Trump is a nationalist. He actually wants to help his countrymen.

If Americans let Trump win the election “we are telling our sons it’s OK to humiliate women. We are telling our daughters this is the way they deserve to be treated. We are telling all of our kids that bigotry and bullying is perfectly acceptable.”

Let me make it clear. What has Obama done to improve standards of living in the past 8 years?

It hasn't, as a matter of fact, it's hemorrhaging at a very fast rate. Insurance companies can't bail fast enough and just wait until Nov. 1st when the new adjusted premium rates come back where the increases will be about 20-70% we are now seeing this thing implode before our very eyes, even Bill Clinton knows it and has recently started to criticize Obamacare and how bad it truly is. Hillary and Obama know that when these new rates come out before the election and people see the new rates.....look out.

You conveniently leave out that the claims he is talking about assault are being taken out of context, he obviously didn't mean assault, and is talking about the star-struck groupie / celebrity party lifestyle.

Well Strangerland, I see you didnt look at the numbers,

When the FED decided to print money, instead of directly giving that money to the very same banks that made the terrbile choice to give mortages to risky lender, they should have let those banks fail, and reinvested the interest free money back into a deregulated industry in order to get production moving again.

Ill give you a clear example. Before, You would buy a stock based on things like; expansion, pay increases, innovations, etc. Now that logic doesnt apply. Now; whatever the central banks statements are... is what moves the markets today!

So, Obama really really really missed this chance and struck out the States!

As far as Obamacare. 20 million more people now have basic coverage at the expense of a 40-50% increase for the average holder and more regulations for employers. It might as well just been an additional tax and socialized, that wouldve been more simple. Seems to work OK in Canada.

My choice is to vote for neither. I won't vote for Hillary, and I won't vote for Trump especially since he bragged about sexual assault and said sexually suggestive remarks about minors. I'm just a middle of the road kind of reasonable guy who thinks both choices are bad, especially the Trump one.

In 2006 I had a argument with a mate about how the banks were handing out home loans. I was of the opinion that the lending requirements were non existence and it will hit back hard. That was 2006 and two years later the GFC hit the world finical markets. It was blamed on the banks lending practices created by the Bush Admin. This caused the massive lay off of workers in the USA. Then Obama admin had to fix this mess the Bush admin left. It history and that how it is recorded. Now people have short memory and blame Obama for the massive lay offs. The fact is Obama admin bail out some of the biggest company in the USA preventing complete company failure and saving millions of worker Jobs. Now that trump is burnt and buried, Obama,s admin good work will get even better.

Hey, keep singing that tune. Never mind it's custom made as of this month. In the same newspaper the 'one grope rule' was revealed in (NYT).

http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2016/10/12/ann-coulter-casting-call-another-anita-hill/

... Perhaps realizing their Victorian virgin act wasn’t cutting it, the media turned to their Pretend We Don’t Understand English method of argument, and claimed that Trump was confessing to having committed a “sexual assault”!

Trump said: “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do any of that. (Laughter.)” Journalists turned this into “sexual assault” by being literal on the “grab” part, non-figurative on the “you” part — and on the “they let you do it” part? Stone, cold deaf.

If “they let you do it,” it’s not an assault.

Like most of Trump’s bragging, his loutish boast was not intended to be taken seriously, nor was it. Far from whipping out his pencil and carefully taking notes, “Access Hollywood”‘s Billy Bush laughed. The gist of what Trump was saying is that — hold onto your hats! — women like to sleep with celebrities! I don’t know if you’ve heard that before. ...

This is the same media that ran interference for an actual sexual predator in the White House, ignoring Bill Clinton’s serial pants-dropping, groping and raping for nearly a decade, while gleefully vilifying his accusers, and would have been happy to continue if Bill Richardson had become president. Clinton talking about p*ssy was one of his more dignified moments, proudly attested to by his friend Vernon Jordan in a nationally broadcast interview with Mike Wallace.

In the pages of The New York Times, feminist icon Gloria Steinem announced the “one-free grope” rule, specially developed for the Clinton era. ...

Here is a bail out reference https://projects.propublica.org/bailout/list

Where did you come up with the conclusion that Obama saved anything? It was the Federal Reserve that decided to bail everyone out by telling congress they had no choice.

And if we learned anything from Bill Cosby, it's that we can be certain there are a whole lot more where they came from.

More and more filth coming out every day on the hopeful Creeper-In-Chief . . . like him walking in on Miss Teen USA pageant contestants--some as young as 15--while they were changing:

Mariah Billado, Miss Teen Vermont 1997 told BuzzFeed, "I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, 'Oh my god, there's a man in here.'" Three other teenage contestants from the same year confirmed the story."

Ivanka's response when Ms. Billado brought it to her attention?

"Yeah, he does that."

Of course, we already knew that he did the same thing to Miss USA contestants (because he personally bragged about that on Stern):

"He just came strolling right in," Dixon said. "There was no second to put a robe on or any sort of clothing or anything. Some girls were topless. Others girls were naked. Our first introduction to him was when we were at the dress rehearsal and half-naked changing into our bikinis."

During debate in the House of Representatives, Rep. John Dingell (Democrat of Michigan) argued that the bill would result in banks becoming "too big to fail." Dingell further argued that this would necessarily result in a bailout by the Federal Government.

With the PTA which the Reps are holding up will make it harder for those USA company base in oversea to complete in the USA.

Doesn't matter, since NONE would have been if your hero had not started the war to begin with. Super-easy to make up lies and start a war, bud. Not nearly as easy to stop them -- especially when you guys keep on lying about why they were started to begin with.

"... but had Clinton done his his job in killing him, we would have never had a 9/11. "

Hahaha! Like I sai, time machine argument. 9/11 happened on bush's watch because he ignored all warnings. You fell right into that one! And pres tel, when was ISIS formed, bud? And please, no Breitbart or Judicial Watch links, since we all know they are BS. Ah, you'll time-machine it anyway, so I'll tell you: ISIS was formed in the late 90's, but gained traction in the power vacuum created by the illegal invasion of Iraq, in 2003. The country was destabilized thanks to said attack. Who was president then?

I know, I know... you think the fault jumped directly from Clinton to Obama, and when Hilary wins it'll be her that started it all, but if Trump were to have won it would be Obama's war, etc., but the fact is that your original statement of MORE war is absurd, since Obama started NONE.

Let's all welcome the war monger in chief!!

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Doesn't matter, since NONE would have been if your hero had not started the war to begin with.

And there wouldn't have been a war to start with if Clinton would have popped OBL in 1998.

Super-easy to make up lies and start a war, bud. Not nearly as easy to stop them -- especially when you guys keep on lying about why they were started to begin with.

Clinton HIMSELF in his own words admitted to that, so now you're calling him a liar? Oh, please do so, that would be so thrilling! Another liberal deflection. Hey, I really wonder what it is with libs and reality, I just don't get it.

"... but had Clinton done his his job in killing him, we would have never had a 9/11. "

Hahaha! Like I sai, time machine argument. 9/11 happened on bush's watch because he ignored all warnings.

And why were all the warnings ignored? the CIA and the FBI at the time didn't share information with each other and who's fault was that?

Ashcroft’s picture of an FBI estranged from its counterparts in the CIA built on criticisms of the FBI under former Director Louis Freeh during the Clinton administration and the first months of the Bush administration. The commission’s chairman described a new staff report as an “indictment” of the FBI during Freeh’s tenure, while Janet Reno, Freeh’s boss during the Clinton administration, said that at the agency, “the right hand didn’t know what the left hand was doing.”

Once again, we have Democrats poisoning the well, but what's new, eh?

You fell right into that one! And pres tel, when was ISIS formed, bud? And please, no Breitbart or Judicial Watch links, since we all know they are BS. Ah, you'll time-machine it anyway, so I'll tell you: ISIS was formed in the late 90's, but gained traction in the power vacuum created by the illegal invasion of Iraq, in 2003. The country was destabilized thanks to said attack. Who was president then?

Hmmmmm......they never called themselves ISIS and they never called for a caliphate and they didn't have Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi who declared himself the leader of ISIS and when did this happen, when did we start using ISIS and when did the ISIS attacks started to commence? That was during the Obama admin. Do you want to try again, Smith?

I know, I know... you think the fault jumped directly from Clinton to Obama, and when Hilary wins it'll be her that started it all, but if Trump were to have won it would be Obama's war, etc., but the fact is that your original statement of MORE war is absurd, since Obama started NONE. You can thank his predecessor -- or, I'm guessing, you'll just stick to the usual time-machine denial (and at the same time tell us not to look at the past... except Bill Clinton!).

Can I ask a serious question? When do you Dems and libs EVER criticize other liberals for anything-EVER? I know you Obama and Hillarybots will never fault them for anything, NO matter what. Even through the Wikileaks cables, John Podesta talks about Hillary like a dog and yet, he's her campaign manager. Liberals are beyond devoid of any ethics or morals. I just pray that one day Dems and liberals will come out of the Unicornverse and realize the people that they idolize so dearly are in fact, mere mortals, fallible and imperfect and on occasion....often....ok, almost always lie.

Can I ask a serious question? When do you Dems and libs EVER criticize other liberals for anything-EVER?

If you ever actually pick up a liberal-leaning publication like The Atlantic or The New Republic, you would find plenty of critical analysis of positions taken by other liberals. But there's a vast difference between criticizing a position and attacking the person holding the position. You'll find numerous articles in each criticizing Hillary Clinton over the email scandal.

The basic values of liberals include a respect for democratic processes that the founders wrote into our constitution. The very values that Trump is attacking when he falsely claims that everything is "rigged." Trump and his followers foment distrust in our very system of government -- making it more possible for a truly malevolent form to replace it.

But back to the topic of the war mongering you guys keep deflecting with (by calling Hillary a war monger, and with the posters of GWB, who actually started the wars, still on your walls)... you HONESTLY think that no new wars would start with Trump at at the helm? Because the guy is anti-everything -- even his own party and the people in it. What's more, ask yourselves, HONESTLY (and I know that's tough!), WHY would Russia want or threaten the US with nuclear war if Trump doesn't win? It's really only one of two reasons:

1) Russia and Trump really are in collusion, despite them both denying it after Trump talked about how much he admires and respects Putin.

2) Okay, it really only is one reason, with the aforementioned reason just being part of it. Russia wants Trump to win for the same reason that many Dems still want Trump in the race despite many in the GOP asking him to leave or asking people to just drop support and focus on saving themselves; it guarantees the other party victory. He'll destroy the US from within, and what better way for Russia and China to move to the head of the world stage? Putin is not stupid -- he knows a Hillary win is likely and he's doing what he can to foment the paranoia and hate that always gets Republicans going. The US will go down in a ball of flames without Russia needing to do anything if Trump one.

Or, you can kid yourself that somehow all wars will suddenly end if Trump were to take control, and he would usher in a new era of peace, joining all nations, religions, colours, creeds, and beliefs besides in equality and harmony.

They just had to break this shocking news two days before and now 6 days before the last debate, a couple of women are NOW all of a sudden coming forward with allegations that Trump physically harassed them. Seriously?! And just for the debate and 12 years and in one case 30 years ago and now suddenly all this just happened so conveniently and timely?

Who is responsible for the disaster known as Donald J. Trump -- a person you called a "lunatic" -- leading the GOP ticket?

The Republican party.

Trump is Hillary's own Manchurian Candidate.

(turbotsat): One of the wikileaks is an email that lists Republican candidates and markes them as 'Pied Piper' or 'Establishment'. Three of them, Trump, Cruz, and Carson were all marked 'Pied Piper', the others including governors Jeb Bush and Chris Christie were marked 'Establishment'. The email said:

We need to be elevating the Pied Piper candidates so that they are leaders of the pack and tell the press to them seriously.

No doubt given recent revelations of media collusion 'the press' willingly complied. You may remember Jeb Bush's campaign complaining last year before he dropped his bid that they could not get the press to talk to them. If the serious candidates are going to be surreptitiously starved of oxygen by the media, naturally the looneytune candidates are going to stand out.

Also, this email was sent two months before Trump even announced his bid. And one month before his hourlong phone conversation with Bill Clinton, which an aide claim had nothing to do with Trump running for the presidency. I guess they talked about grandchildren and golf.

EXCLUSIVE AUDIO – Gennifer Flowers: Bill Clinton Paid $200 For Me to Abort His Baby

... Gennifer Flowers, who says she had a 12-year affair with Bill Clinton, opened up about what she described as the experience of having an abortion after she says she found out she was pregnant with Clinton’s child. Flowers stated that Clinton personally paid $200 for the abortion in 1977, and she revealed that she was made aware that Hillary Clinton knew that same year about the alleged affair, which Flowers says continued another eleven years or so. Flowers described the abortion as “psychologically a horrible thing to go through,” and “not only physically painful but it was very psychologically painful.” ...

... Juanita Broaddrick's credible charge of a rape accompanied by physical battery by a man who was then attorney general of Arkansas and is now our president is too meaningless to merit a word of reproach from, among others, Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Susan Faludi, Eleanor Smeal, former congresswoman and vocal feminist Patricia Schroeder, former governor and vocal feminist Ann Richards, or Geraldine Ferraro, vocal feminist and former candidate for the vice presidency of the United States. ... the ever-flexible Elizabeth Holtzman... expresses great concern for the imperiled rights of Bill Clinton. How do you defend yourself against such a charge? she wonders. On Crossfire, Clinton friend Susan Estrich claims that in the absence of proof, the benefit of the doubt goes to the accused, who is then declared innocent. ... In that last instance, Gloria Steinem formulated what came to be known as her" one free grope" theory, maintaining that Clinton knew how to "take 'no' for an answer." Now, when it appears that he sometimes takes "no" to mean "yes, please," Steinem is silent, though she might want to upgrade her theory to "one free rape," so long as the accused is in favor of late-term abortion. ...

However I do not understand why people continue to believe that Hillary Clinton will help the middle or lower class.

Read the census information for 2015. Middle class income is up for the year, first time in a long time. Once again the Democratic President helps real people. Bill Clinton was last President when this happened. Bush destroyed all the gains when he let the economy collapse during this train wreck years.

So yes Clinton will carry on with the Obama policies, which are making the country better than 8 years ago by far. Facts, not fox news spin. Also Obama has not allowed a terrorist attack on the USA as Bush did, Clinton will continue that as well unlike Bush who let 9-11 happen because he did not want to read his intel reports

So the question is why would anyone want to return to failed policies of the republicans? Especially if this time they are delivered by a criminal sexual deviant and sociopath. You religious types in particular, Trump was trying to cheat on his pregnant wife and bragging about it. You republicans tried to impeach Clinton for much less. But no, the double standard is so huge. Trump is an immoral loser and Obama has been perfect in 8 years, family man, no scandals, nothing, but you retrogrades think Obama was born in Kenya and will vote for a scumbag like Trump. Basket of deplorables is so perfect a description. Lately Trump supporters are bring swastikas to the Trump rallies. Those folks are the true Trump base of support.

How can Christians vote for Trump?

Say we want to disregard the Clinton rule that misogynist behavior is to be ignored if committed by a Democratic president and first lady, and equally pretend that there's no chance that the NYT et al, working on this in their capacity as Hillary campaign surrogates since at least last March according to Carrie Prejean, could not scare up some women with fake stories, and that the Trump stories aren't fake. Say, ignore feminist Gloria Steinem's one-grope rule, and Susan Estrich's innocent-in-the-absence-of-proof statement ("On Crossfire, Clinton friend Susan Estrich claims that in the absence of proof, the benefit of the doubt goes to the accused, who is then declared innocent.").

That leaves felony rape (Bill) and felony witness intimidation (Hillary) and felony exposure of classified data (Hillary) and felony obstruction of justice (Hillary) and felony destruction of subpoenaed data (Hillary) vs. misdemeanor assault (Trump).

Besides that, the wikileaked emails and Goldman-Sachs speeches are showing Hillary to be somewhere to the right of Trump.

I seem to recall Julian Assange boasting a while back that rolling out the Clinton emails in October would have a significant impact on the election, but I don't suppose you think there's anything unethical, sneaky or dishonest about that. Not quite working out as expected though, is it? That could be media bias, or it could be all down to the simple fact that it's Trump Clinton's running against and "Clinton tries to get primary date moved" just doesn't have the attention grabbing power of "9th woman accuses Trump of groping." I mean, really - against any other Republican candidate there's every possibility that her campaign would be dead in the water and the Wikileaks really would finish it off, but there you have it.

Trump is burnt. Goneeee. Now, the GOP is like a smoldering fire. Trump is like the fan that burst the smouldering fire into flames each time Trump just opens his mouth. I really think the GOP is finish. When this race is finally over and the Dem,s hold power in both the white and the Big house, you will see fractures of the far right (tea party) of the GOP. You will have the Trump support dissolve into their only party. and that leaves the middle with Jed Bush. The rest will melt back into state and local politic all because no one will take the blame for putting up Trump. It will takes decades to rebuild a right of politics with enough people power and money to mount and creditable Champaign in USA Politics.

Maybe some of those women are actually lying. But I don't care.

America, just get rid of this mess by changing the law and allow President Obama another term. FDR did it. He can do it. This election is a shame.

I'm not seeing any such posts on the first two pages ... give you an out, maybe the mods deleted them ... no shame, though, the media also doesn't bother quantifying their support for Hillary. 40 years of scandals countered by ... what?

BTW "Queue deflection" should probably be "Cue deflection".

No election is ever a "shame".

It reflects the "people" who are allowing that to happen.

And we are the people.

The fact that this election came to be so far is that we allowed the media and the candidates (especially the political parties behind the candidates) to move in that direction.

The entire election has been "personality" and "idealism" rather the really rational, practical, and urgent issues at hand.

Some can say that it was the media. Some can say that it was the candidates themselves.

Regardless... while everyone is pointing to everyone and to everything else... we as the voting public had "allowed" that to happen by "reacting" to them with our own emotional and idealistic view of politics but did nothing to keep the election process clean and meaningful and relevant.

True it is difficult for any one individual to influence the entire nation as Clinton and Trump are able to... but each person on the web or via mail could have written to and by sheer numbers could have changed the scenery.

It is like every politician spending so much time and effort complaining and accusing the other politician while the entire problem solving process and legislation get delayed or never gets to the voting stage. Even if it did... the politicians can prevent the funding while the President can veto at will just for his/her own political motivations.

And we the people had allowed that top happen by not taking action... Too many are spending all the time complaining and making comments which gets no "results". It is not just placing a "vote". It is also actively participating and making a difference.

(All of you complained so much about the people in our host country are so complacent and are just followers. But, often we are doing the same thing.)

It is difficult to do so while we are here in our host country... but. that is why we can take the web and social media.

Sadly, even those routes are now being hampered by our own government by their monitoring and restrictions.

...and the media hate campaign against the outsider continues, as predicted. What astounds me is that there are still people who swallow the mainstream media slogans hook, line, and sinker, in spite of how Wikileaks has exposed how deceitful and coordinated this smear campaign is. Lots of low-information voters out there, alas.

Looks to me like someone has swallowed the slogan of mainstream media hook, line and sinker.

Looks to me like WilliB believes in whatever tabloid filters through his bubble.

Lots of low-information voters out there, alas.

LOL! yes... "out there" --

Pot meet kettle.

This guy continues to lie out of his teeth and his adoring fans eat it all up.

Last night he lied about not using Trump foundation funds for lawsuits, and he avoided admitting that he forced himself on many women by claiming they were all lying to get some advantage out of it.

He even finished the night off by insinuating that he would not accept Hillary as the winner. Even though when he was asked that same question the first debate, he said he WOULD accept Hillary as winner (if she won the election).

How many more accusers are tied to the Hillary-tied/Obama-tied dirty tricks operatives?

Surely they didn't stop at one faking grandma?

Woman Backtracks on Assault Claim After O’Keefe Video - 20 Oct 2016

... A woman who accused a Donald Trump supporter of punching her outside a Trump rally in North Carolina is backtracking after James O’Keefe and Project Veritas released video showing Democrat operatives claiming she was a trained activist. ... Originally ... “He stopped in his tracks, and he turned around and just cold-cocked me.” .... Now, however, Teter is changing her story rather dramatically. She told WLOS on Wednesday that “it’s possible that he could have struck her with his backhand.” ... His attorney told Breitbart News that he turned around after being touched, and Teeter then fell down. ... She showed no visible sign of injury to her face in photographs and interviews that followed the incident. ...
