His supporters won't know any better. Might as well just let them be happy together.

He loves the under educated.

This is loser talk, to be sure.

It is also incredibly irresponsible. The yahoos are not only preparing for defeat; they are preparing to go full Truther on the election.

Our republic cannot survive without the losing candidate and party accepting the results of the election.

Trumpism must be destroyed. No responsible person can vote for this dangerous fraud.

Almost every single immigrant from Mexico comes to America so they can work full time, feed their families, and perhaps own a little piece of land. Very few have ANY interest in American politics. In fact, most only still voted in the Mexican elections, which the Mexican government permits.

Trump is doing what he does best...catering to the lowest common denominator, because he can count on the "poorly educated" to buy whatever he's selling.

Facts and truths don't matter to the birthers and their true believing ilk.

I'm waiting for someone to post an interesting youtube showing Martians in Roswell registering to vote.

US Presidents and Election Fraud

Many people, even after the 1876 Hayes vs. Tilden and Florida 2000 Bush vs. Gore elections, still believed that election fraud was a relatively rare event in the USA, especially as regards presidents, and exerted a relatively small effect on history.

That perception is false. In fact, election fraud has exerted a very large effect on US (and hence world) history. Indeed, it has been one of the largest factors affecting post-World-War-II US history. To show that, we will now detail the fact that of the 11 US Presidents since World War II, the careers of at least 6 depended crucially on election fraud.

If you can name any other factor which created 6 or more out of 11 US presidents, please do. We suspect you can't name very many, in which case you agree with us that election fraud has been one of the pre-eminent factors altering US and world history. Bet you didn't learn that as a schoolchild, did you? Gee, I wonder why.

The list: ...

How many illegal votes is he claiming there are of this nature? He is exaggerating.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

Trump has from the start opened his big mouth only to prove to me how little he knew what he was talking about. He obviously has NO IDEA how immigration works if he thinks obtaining US citizenship is some fast and easy process. I retract my earlier view that Trump is unfit for the job, He's a complete idiot.

He is exaggerating. when hasn't Trump exaggerated, it gets to the stage that everything is a conspiracy.

Now that we got that out of the way.... Trump is absolutely right on this and he should shine light on this. We all know liberals HATE the truth, especially if it doesn't follow their narrative, but as long as THEY see it to be truthful, they will believe it, if they don't, and their majestic ears reject it, then it's all lies. LMAO

-17 ( +3 / -20 )

Now that we got that out of the way....

Now that we got what out of the way? The title of the article is not supported by the contents of the article. The article doesn't say that illegals will be able to vote, only eligible voters:

“The New Motor Voter Act automatically registers to vote all eligible voters when they obtain or renew their drivers licenses at the Department of Motor Vehicles instead of requiring them to fill out a form.”

Apparently you didn't know that illegals are not eligible voters. Or else you wouldn't have posted an article that doesn't support your beliefs.

11 ( +11 / -0 )

This is an extension of Trump's 3-pronged answer to the closing debate question "Will you accept the outcome as the will of the voters?"

Which first elicited this: "I want to make America great again. We are a nation that is seriously troubled. We're losing our jobs. People are pouring into our country. The other day, we were deporting 800 people. And perhaps they passed the wrong button, they pressed the wrong button, or perhaps worse than that, it was corruption, but these people that we were going to deport for good reason ended up becoming citizens. Ended up becoming citizens. And it was 800. And now it turns out it might be 1,800, and they don't even know."

And then (after prodding) this: "The answer is, if she wins, I will absolutely support her."

And finally, a few days later, this: "“We’re going to have to see. We’re going to see what happens. We’re going to have to see.”

So Donald Trump's answer to that simple question is:

No. Yes. Maybe.

it is not liberals who hate the truth. I did some checking on this bill. Readers can find the REAL TRUTH here.

If that were remotely true, then the MSM would present both sides equally and devote their time fairly between the positive things he said and the nutty stuff and let the voters decide.

Snopes is non-political and very good at smoking out lies such as bass's. I do not know who the "we all" is that bass4funk refers to, but it has to be an ever-shrinking fringe group. Trump is 100% wrong on this as he is on nearly everything else.

I know Snopes, that they are NON-political is a different subject also who was the person that did the actually polling and how many were surveyed. Snopes is not as big as Quinnipiac or Rasmussen or the other larger more reliable sources.

But now that we know that for sure, as a Californian resident, that vile Jerry Brown has been at this for some time and many people knew this was coming, am I surprised, Not at all, I was just wondering when the crap would hit the fan and it did.

ok trump is just getting worse & worse & the non sense he spews makes me wonder if on top of being racist, treating women like crap, perpetual lier etc etc if he is ON something..........seriously!

He should not only release his tax info, he should have his blood work done, I have a feeling he has something to hide there as well sadly

The only crap is that you haven't posted anything to support your claims. The one article you did post, from some hack who figured out how to post a website on the cheapest hosting possible, didn't even support the claim it made itself in the title.

If a title in an article by some random guy is 'proof' to you, it really shows that you will believe anything.

How is the man racist? As for treating women like crap, so then what about him treating women good? What about the woman that say he's an upstanding guy and gentleman, what about that, should we be fair or should we be one-sided and just focus on the bad? Wait, I'm talking to a bunch of libs, I already know the answer to that.

If that were remotely true, then the MSM would present both sides equally and devote their time fairly between the positive things he said and the nutty stuff and let the voters decide.

That's precisely the same imbicilic logic that drove Creationism advocates a decade ago. They demanded that religious myth and the scientific method be placed on equal footing and debated as equals. You're demanding that rumors, insinuations, and unfounded accusations be placed on equal footing and debated as equals. Just as with Creationism vs. Evolution, your rumor mill cannot stand up to simple, cold facts. To demand that MSM pretend the BS Trump is peddling is any more than that is an insult to the very concept of truth.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

You're demanding that rumors, insinuations, and unfounded accusations be placed on equal footing and debated as equals.

So now the left is complaining about rumors and accusations? Give me a break. At least Trump didn't hide the fact of what he said and contrast that to what Hillary was trying to deny she said and oh, by the way, the new Wikileaks report that just came out has finally shown us what most people suspected and that is once again, Hillary was debunked when she made the statement that she didn't know that the during the Benghazi attack it was done by Jihadists. She knew all along as well as her lies about server.

To demand that MSM pretend the BS Trump is peddling is any more than that is an insult to the very concept of truth.

Actually, it's not and any fair minded journalist knows this. You can do both, present both sides of the argument and then objectively walk away and let the people decide or in this case the voters. That's fair journalism and we haven't seen that in this election cycle.

-13 ( +2 / -15 )

So now the left is complaining about rumors and accusations?

Yep. They don't deserve anything near the same respect and coverage as facts and convictions.

To demand that MSM pretend the BS Trump is peddling is any more than that is an insult to the very concept of truth.

Actually, it's not and any fair minded journalist knows this.

Let's get an actual fair minded journalist to confirm that. You posted an article earlier today that didn't support your claims, didn't support the claims made in the title of the article itself, and was obviously made by someone that was self-publishing, and not a legitimate news organization. So I think your journalism can hardly be considered fair minded.

Trump's Deplorables are a reminder that 30% of the underbelly of any population seems to always be ready to acquiesce to a windbag dictator and a good reminder that without truth in information and increasing broadcast and news standards, slipping into the cult like mindset of the 1930's and following into line with other brown shirts is never really that far away. You'd think we've come so far then this reminds us that without reason a country's ability to collapse increases.

Trumps Deplorables are the brown shirts of modern times.

By repealing laws decades ago that held the wealthy excess in check, the country is predictably listing under bad decisions. It was certainly bubbling for a while but in one example simply allowing Fox News to have a license, or not holding them to broadcast standards has lead to a generation of USAers who are ridiculously uninformed.

Without consequences on lying, science, and economics, it's all downhill.

The election is a canard. The senate and house gerrymandering has ensured that the USA government will continue to foster stupidity and keep heading toward internal strife.

It's a lesson for the rest of us to not use the USA as a model of democracy and freedom when responsibility and obligations of citizens disappears into a consumerist brawl.

And that's the absolute truth. Liberals have always had a problem with the truth and hypocrisy in general, especially over the last 15 years.

The problem that I have with is as I put it before that everything is systematically planned for a reason. The leaking of this tape, the bias of this reporting, but overlooking the mails of Hillary Clinton that just came out, the jobs report that ironically came out a few days ago right before the 2nd debate. In my 35 years of working in Journalism, I have never seen liberals or anything like this on such a crazy level.

Leaked Email Shows MSNBC Producer Really, Really Likes ‘Amazing’ Hillary Clinton

“The point of the segment is basically to inform young people about all of the crap and nonsense that Sec. Clinton and President Clinton (but mostly Sec. Clinton) had to face back in the 90s when President Clinton was running for office…everything from cookie-gate to stand-by-your-man-gate to Hillarycare,” Braun wrote, pitching the pro-Clinton segment. Also Read: Al Gore to Hit Campaign Trail for Hillary Clinton The email continued: “The point isn’t to dwell on the past but the point is to talk about this amazing, intelligent woman who probably faced more nonsense back in the day because she is a woman…and she continues to have to face it. She is smarter than most men and more qualified than most men to be president.”

"Trump’s comments about people crossing the border to vote were a response to Art Del Cueto, president of the border patrol union’s Tucson, Arizona, chapter, who attended the session.

Del Cueto said people who were apprehended crossing the border illegally and who have criminal records were not being dealt with because immigration authorities were tied up helping people get citizenship.

Trump asked why, and Del Cueto responded, “so they can go ahead and vote before the election.”

“They want to hurry up and fast-track them so they can go ahead and be able to vote for the election,” Del Cueto said"

Perhaps Clinton should have a talk with Del Cueto.

"Even if this was true (which it is not), it would be a drop in the bucket."

Yeah, well, Hillary's up by only a couple of points in most polls, with Trump ahead in a few. It might be close.

Sheesh - it's only October 8 dawning on the American east coast now, yet October surprises are raining like candy from a burst pinata. Republicans have shifted from either no comment mode or reluctant support to actively calling Trump to exit in favor of his VP nominee, Pence.

This is historical. Considering the cowardice Trump shows when he's not "winning," I guess he will drop out. If he does not, God help the GOP. Their situation now is akin to this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsx2vdn7gpY

If the republicans were smart, they would get him off the ticket and get Pence or one of the other ex-candidates in. Clowns they are of course, but this guy is making them look like gentlemen. But then again, that would require being smart....

They can't. He's been chosen as the leader by their rules. There isn't any mechanism to get him out even if they wanted to, and lets face it, his Strumpets far outnumber those who are embarrassed by him.

The Republican party deserves everything they are getting. They set up the environment of hatred which allowed him to be chosen, and now that environment of hatred is coming back to bite them in the ass. Be careful what you wish for.

Stranger, he could drop out. Not sure what the mechanism is for choosing his replacement; it's not a legal thing, like the successor to a president who dies in office (VP, the House Speaker) - it's party rules. Probably the GOP will just go with Pence, but it will be messy, and they'd better get on it as little time remains.

And Trump and his supporters get more and more desperate by the day. Serrano and others on here who actually believe this garbage are really just mentally preparing the excuses for when they lose. There are a lot of people who are changing from Green Card status to naturalized citizens for the sole purpose of voting against Trump, but that is perfectly legal, and is still a lengthy process they have mostly already prepared for. And of course, needless to say Trump has zero specifics or proof to back up his claims.

Appatently, this is how it would go:

Rule 9 of the Republican National Committee rules governs "Filling Vacancies in Nominations," and stipulates that should the party's presidential or vice presidential candidate leave the ticket for whatever reason, the hole may be filled either by a reconvening of the national convention or by the party committee itself. The vice presidential nominee is not given any preferential consideration.

Should the committee elect to fill the vacancy — a seemingly more likely scenario given the logistics involved in organizing a second convention — Republican National Committee members representing a given state are entitled to cast the same number of votes as that state was entitled to at the convention. If the RNC members from any state are not in agreement about casting of their votes, the votes of that state are divided equally among members of the RNC voting.

The final stipulation of the rule is that no candidate may be chosen to fill a vacancy except by receiving a majority of the votes entitled to be cast in the RNC election.

One thing is for sure: Trump is certainly not looking forward to Sunday's debate.

I just don't see him dropping out. He's way too narcissistic. He thinks he can't lose.

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Obviously, Trump and his people people have no understanding of how the immigration of the US is currently handled--and you want to put them in CHARGE of handing it?!?

The US immigration officers who are doing naturalization of legal immigrants are called "Immigration Examiners" and they don't have anything to do with stopping illegal immigrants from crossing. Intercepting, excluding and returning illegal border crossers is handled by the "Border Patrol" --officers from a totally different office, and it's a totally different job (and often a thankless one). There are various other jobs in there, too, including "inspectors" who check your documents at the airport, on ships and at the land crossings, and "investigators", who look into allegations of illegals hiding in the US and attempt to locate and return them.

Even if there WERE "fast-tracking" of naturalizations by immigration examiners (which I don't believe for a minute), it would have ZERO effect on stopping/allowing more illegals to cross by the Border Patrol.

As usual, Trump is blustering and obfuscating when he is not just plain prevaricating.
