Hillarynomics =  Hoover-depression-nomics
When it comes to reversing our worsening economy (now in its 15th straight month of GDP decline, see) my question to Hillary Clinton supporters is this: if this presidential race were between Donald Trump and Herbert Hoover who would you choose? Would any one of you be foolish enough to vote for hapless Herbert whose fiscal and economic policies turned a recession into the Great Depression (the worst, longest, most tragic economic crisis in US history)?
The common sense answer is that the vast majority of them would roll the dice and prefer the untested, inexperienced, unconventional, flawed billionaire over the experienced Hoover who historians correctly rank as one of the top ten worst presidents ever. So then my next question to these folks is this:  If you'd never vote for Hoover over Trump then why would you vote for Hillary over him? For a President Clinton's fiscal and economic policies would make her the Herbert Hoover of the 21st century. And that would spell disaster.
For Clinton's economic plan to reverse Obama's weakening, trickle growth, bad jobs recovery-now (as I mentioned above) in its fifth quarter (15th straight month) of GDP decline-by soaking the rich (the most productive members of society) and corporations (job creators) with huge tax hikes and more stifling, growth inhibiting, job killing regulations is exactly what Herbert Hoover did in the early 1930s to end the depression; and the results were catastrophic.
It was liberal, progressive, big government interventionist Herbert Hoover who once famously said, "The trouble with Capitalism are Capitalists." And before he left office he punished them with a massive tax hike.
In 1932 with a Federal deficit in the billions Hoover decided to raise taxes so he could have more money to fund his stimulative recovery programs-which included a vigorous public works program for construction projects. And to that end Hoover signed into law the largest peacetime tax increase in our nation's history (see). Aimed mostly at the "greedy, selfish, capitalist rich" Hoover's Revenue Act more than doubled their tax rates from 25% to 63%. Prior to this the only comparable tax hike was Woodrow Wilson's war tax (Hoover worked in his administration) which astronomically raised top marginal rates from 8% to 73%, and was a huge factor in crashing the economy after the war.
However, instead of ending the depression, as he had hopped, and putting Americans back to work Hoover's policies made things critically worse. Indeed, the following year when FDR took office unemployment smashed all previous records and hit a historic high (never surpassed) of 25%.  But in spite of his failures Hoover remained undaunted an unrepentant. Cock sure that he did all the right things and that he put the economy on the right track he believed that his efforts would eventually bear fruit, and the American people would prosper again. 
The only thing we have to fear is not taxing, spending and regulating enough.
Hoover's successor FDR however disagreed. 'Yes Hoover was right to try and tax, spend and regulate his way out of the depression,' FDR believed. But his problem was this: he didn't tax, spend and regulate enough. He was too weak, timid and restrained in his use of government power to revive the economy. So FDR doubled down on Hoover's New Deal with a super New Deal. FDR would spend baby spend and relentlessly experiment and experiment and experiment with new costly big government programs until he found the solution to defeat the depression. This was a war for FDR and he was its general leading the charge against big business, Wall Street and his own wealthy class who, he believed, were conspiring against him and hording their wealth and keeping the economy depressed. So under FDR taxes, spending and regulations went up. From Hoover's 63% top marginal tax rate on the rich FDR raised it another 16 points to a whopping 79%; he then doubled corporate taxes from 12% to 24%; and on top of that he added an "Excess Profits Tax" just to make sure that corporations didn't horde the wealth they made.
The New Deal brought some relief, and much reform; but the promised robust recovery never materialized.
What Roosevelt did was so radical and crazy that it even alarmed Herbert Hoover who thought he had gone too far. And indeed he did. In 1937 the recovery collapsed and the bottom fell out of the New Deal. October 1937 saw another  market crash followed by a "recession within the depression" where 2 million workers lost their jobs. In short, it was 1929 all over again. And year after year, experiment after experiment, the depression dragged on until after Pearl Harbor when FDR, a leader born for war, created the Industrial-Military Complex and put America back to work making arms.
But Hillary Clinton an ignoramus on economics like Hoover and FDR wants to return to their failed tax, spend interventionist policies as if somehow this time defying the laws of economic gravity there'll be a different outcome. It's called insanity. 
Bill Clinton began the greatest housing/credit bubble in American history-which burst under George Bush who continued Clinton's reckless sub prime mortgage policies.
But if this doesn't alarm you maybe this will: Hillary vows if elected she's going to put husband Bill "in charge of reviving the [Obama's bad] economy." Why is this alarming? After all didn't Bill Clinton preside over the booming 90s where the economy was doing so well that the public was willing to forgive his scandal with Monica Lewinsky? But one must be alarmed because the housing/credit crash of 2008 was rooted in Clinton's Affordable Housing Program. In fact, much of the great economic growth of the 90s was due to two things: 1. the high tech revolution (which started before Clinton took office); and 2. putting millions of low income folks into homes they could ill afford. This gave them an artificial short cut to the middle class creating a false wealth effect in the general economy. Indeed, to this day Bill Clinton brags about the 7.7 million he lifted out of poverty. But doesn't breathe a word on the economically and financially reckless and ruinous way it was done.  
As I wrote HERE 5/6ths of the devastating housing bubble that burst in 2008 was created under Clinton; 1/6th under Bush-who reluctantly continued Clinton's policies. But the point is this: if HIllary wins the presidency we will have a political husband and wife team stuck in the failed economic policies of the 1930s; and who created a financially reckless housing program in the 90s for low income folks that nearly plunged the economy into a depression-where millions of homeowners lost their homes.
With the economy so bad that Fed Chief Janet Yellen is refusing to raise interest rates who do you want in the White House?




Several days ago Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump's campaign manager, said in a CNN interview that her boss would win the first presidential debate in New York today and go on to defeat Hillary Clinton for the presidency; she said that prefiguring Trump's coming victory (at today's NBC debate) was his performance in New York on September 7th at NBC's Commander-in-Chief Forum. Indeed defying expectations that the more experienced and knowledgeable Hillary would best him Trump literally crushed her looking far more competent,
professional and presidential. Indeed, later in an NBC poll a whopping 63% verses 37% (a landslide 26 point spread) said that Trump was the more impressive of the two. And indeed he was.
View image on Twitter What begins badly often ends badly. Was Hillary's defeat at the CIC Forum prelude to tonight and November?
Not surprisingly the signs for that day were highly auspicious  for Donald Trump. For the next Commander-in-Chief will be the 45th in our nation's history. And on September 7th at the Forum when Trump was outperforming Hillary it was exactly 1 year, 2 months and 23 days from June 16, 2015, the memorable day Donald Trump launched his historic campaign. Amazingly 1 year, 2 months and 23 days translates significantly into 450 days-significant because 450 is a multiple of 45 the number of our next President (see). This was an incredible "coincidence" for Trump who had a remarkable day beating the odds and towered above Hillary in public esteem.
Or was it more than just coincidence? Was it a Providential Sign that Kellyanne was right? That Trump's stunning victory at the Forum foreshadows a coming victory in tonight's debate, with the billionaire going on to win the next two debates and becoming our 45th President? 
Will this be the fate of the Clinton campaign after tonight's historic debate?
But there were several other "coincidences" that occurred that day that are fueling my growing optimism about Trump's unorthodox candidacy. First off, when Trump shellacked Hillary she was in the 16th month of her campaign (see). Was this a sign that her failure at the Forum prophetically anticipates her fate in November? That this incredible, extraordinary, never seen before election year of 2016 (being the 16th year of the 21st century) Hillary losing the Forum event in the 16th month of her campaign signals her failure in returning to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with husband Bill? We can only hope so.
Moreover, on the day of the Forum Donald Trump was in the 64th week of his uncanny campaign. 64 is an interesting and seemingly relevant number in that it's a multiple of 16 4x. The number 16, as I have written about HERE and HERE, has been auspicious for Trump throughout his campaign. In fact, 16 months and 24 days from June 16, 2015 (the kick off date of Trump's campaign) brings us right smack to Election Day (see). Indeed, November 8, 2016 the final day of Trump's campaign is its 512th day-512 is a multiple of 16 32x. Another remarkable coincidence, or is it a Providential Sign that 2016 belongs to Trump? 
 Will New York's Donald Trump win the presidency on the 84th anniversary of New York's Franklin Roosevelt winning the presidency thus making him the next New Yorker after Roosevelt to be President?
But I'm not done. Both Trump and Clinton make their homes in New York State where the CIC Forum took place. Now 6 of our 44 presidents came from New York, with FDR being the 6th and last. Now because Trump and Clinton are New Yorkers the 45th POTUS will be the 7th politician to come from that state. The CIC Forum which the 70-year-old Trump unquestionably won fell on the 7th day of September. Now the November 8th election is exactly 63 days from the Forum; within this context 63 is an interesting number because it's multiple of 7 6x. Could this be a numeric sign that Trump who bested Clinton at the Forum will follow FDR, the 6th and last President from New York, and be numero 7?
Furthermore, FDR won the Presidency on November 8, 1932 (see); this coming November 8th, when for the 7th time a New Yorker will be elected President, it will be the 84th anniversary of FDR's victory (84 is a multiple of 7 12x). Will it be a Donald Trump victory? What Trump has in common with FDR is that (unlike Hillary) he's a native New Yorker born in the Empire State; and both were born into wealth with silver spoons in their mouths. Amazingly, when Trump was born in Queens, New York on June 14, 1946 it was exactly 64 years, 4 months and 16 days after FDR's birth (see). A seemingly propitious sign for Trump for reasons explained above.
JANUARY 20, 2017
Will Donald Trump be doing this on the 70th year of the 7th month of the 7th day of his incredible life?
But what about Kellyanne's prediction that the Commander-in-Chief Forum on September 7th points to Trump winning tonight's debate, and going on to seizing the presidency and taking the oath of office in January?
First off, as Kellyanne is working to making her 70-year-old boss the 7th President after FDR from the Empire State it just so happens that she's 49 years old-49 is 7 squared (7x7).
Secondly, as FDR was the 6th and last New Yorker to be President, and the next President will be the 7th New Yorker, it is fascinating to note that Kellyanne was born in 1967, the 67th year of the 20th century.  A seemingly auspicious sign that her boss will follow FDR 6 and be numero 7.
Thirdly, and I love this one, January 20, 2017 is Kellyanne's 50th birthday (see).
Fourthly, the next Republican President will be the 19th in our history. From Trump's September 7th NBC Forum victory to Inauguration Day is 19 weeks (see). In fact, from September 7th to tonight's first debate totals 19 days (see).
Fifthly, FDR, the last New Yorker to be POTUS, died in 1945.... a four digit number that gives us the numbers 45 (number of the next President) and 19 (the number of the next Republican President).  Remarkably, as Election Day is the 512th and final day of Trump's campaign (as explained above) and it falls on the 84th anniversary of FDR's 1932 election victory, amazingly the number 512 when multiplied by 38 generates 19456-a five digit number encoded with the year (1945) of FDR's death.
Sixthly, as the number 16 and its multiples (32, 64, etc.) have been auspicious for Donald Trump who very well might become the next New Yorker after FDR to be President, it is fascinating to note that FDR was the 32nd president becoming such in 1932-32 is double 16.  
Moreover, as FDR was the 6th and last New Yorker to be President, and Donald Trump may well be the 7th (giving us the numbers 6 & 7), amazingly on the day Trump was born it was precisely 4967 days from FDR's election in 1932 (see).  
And lastly, as I've written elsewhere, if the 70 year old Donald Trump makes it to the White House as the 7th New Yorker after FDR he will be exactly 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old when he takes the oath of office (see). Is this a sign from On High that Donald Trump has a "Rendezvous with Destiny" on January 20, 2017-when Kellyanne Conway turns 50? We shall see.

"What are SICK ILLARY's internal polls telling her that made her so bat sh*t crazy yesterday raving like a loon that her lead was too small? That it should be 50 points tall? What polling data is depressing her and making her seem that she's losing hope"

So, where are these "internal polls" that you and so many other Trump supporters have been telling me about? I keep asking to see them and no one can point me to them. In the absence of any evidence that they exist or, if they do, that they say what is claimed, I have to assume that it's just another talking point advanced by some right-wing blog or pundit somewhere, designed to give Trump supporters some hope where the current polling offers none.

But, for the sake of argument, let's assume that they do exist and say what is claimed. I would rather have internal polling be a cause for concern in an effort to generate improvement rather than the pat-on-the-back internal polling that convinced Mitt Romney that he would win easily, to the extent that he bought fireworks for a planned celebration and didn't even write a concession speech. Looks like Karl Rove was caught a bit off-guard, too. 😉

By the way, it looks like the media finally managed to find Trump's lost baggage and is showing us the unsettling contents.

The rest of what you said reminds of what was said about President Obama's re-election. The same claims of a lack of enthusiasm, baggage (the ACA), people staying home, etc., all based more on wishful thinking rather than any hard evidence. In fact, Hillary Clinton received far more votes than Trump in their respective primaries and, unlike Trump, has the enthusiastic support of the vast majority of her fellow party members, including her former rival, Bernie Sanders. She also has a substantial GOTV initiative, unlike Trump who, despite his claims to the contrary, can't even afford basic advertising.

At this point, I have to even wonder if Trump will receive more votes for him than against him.

"And poor SICK ILLARY doesn't have any [enthusiasm]."

And THERE we have it: The utter desperation of a party who has somehow managed to nominate the most unpopular presidential candidate in modern times, despised by even many in his own party: Wishing ill health on his opponent because he has no other path to victory.

I have to chuckle at what I've been reading lately: The best anyone can hope for now is that Trump doesn't "lose it" at the debates. The lowest bar set for any candidate, ever, and one that many are worried he won't be able to hurdle. I also enjoyed reading that Trump's support is exactly where it was months ago, composed of the same small number of die-hard (but very loud) supporters who won't abandon him no matter what, to use your phrase, "batsh*t crazy" things he says or does.

Don't despair, though. Ted Cruz has finally abandoned the only principle he ever had and has now endorsed Trump. As popular as Ted Cruz is, THAT should change a lot of minds. (LOL)

Hillary Clinton's lead increased again today in RCP's national polling average.

It also dropped, again today, in Nate Silver's election forecast.

At least he didn't lose any ground in the LA Times farcical joke of a poll, the only one he is currently leading. Other than the more than 50% drop he managed this week, I mean.

"Internal polling," heh.

Although I disagree with your assertions and conclusions, I do appreciate that you have been generally civil. Thank you.



Is 2016 becoming 2008 all over again for Hillary? It looks that way.


Apparently you've done an outstanding job in ignoring all the signs of SICK LOW ENERGY MISERABLE HILLARY'S health and stamina decline; and in convincing yourself that she's wrong to feel so uncertain and depressed about her chances of success in November. Apparently you believe that this unsmiling, joyless woman has every reason to be the happy warrior: confident, sure and optimistic that she's unstoppably moving ahead to winning the presidency and continuing Obama's tragic legacy of ashes, dust and disaster. You've convinced yourself that the data she's seeing from her internal polling is all wrong; that she needs someone like you to do the analysis for her; and not listen to the likes of CNNs John Phillips who (having actually done the math that you refuse to do) sees this race as neck and neck-despite Hillary outspending Trump 5:1 in key battle ground states.

No my friend, this is a horse race that will be decided by the debates; and SICK PNEUMONIC HILLARY whose health has suffered greatly from 17 months of campaigning (light compared to Trump who did 32 rallies last month to her 11) seems to be losing the  confidence needed to win. But how can Hillary be confident when she's so physically ill; and when she failed so badly at the Commander-in-Chief Forum being crushed by Trump 63% to 37% for seeming more competent, professional and presidential  looking Trump crushed in the polls 63% to 37%? Often what begins bad ends bad, and Hillary was off to a terrible start.

Nate Silver gives Trump the edge in winning the presidency 50.9 to 49.1. The underlying reason for this must be showing up in depressed ILLARY'S internal polling.

Tell me, friend, when Hillary loses tomorrow's debate will sore losers like you blame it on Lester Holt not rescuing her like you blamed Matt Lauer for Hillary losing the CIC Forum?  

The truth is this: 2016 is looking more and more like the 2008 Democrat primaries where Hillary (she was healthy then) despite her vast experience and huge early lead, lost in a close race to a charismatic candidate who convinced voters wanting change that he was the real deal. Donald Trump is this election's Barack Obama; and status quo Hillary (the creäture of Washington, Wall Street, Big Banks, Big Pharma, Big Oil etc.) is losing heart and greatly fears this year will be 2008 redux. That much is certain from Thursday's crazy, robotic "50 points" union rant where ILLARY looked and sounded like an escapee from the nut house.

This is my prediction for tomorrow:  SICK ILLARY at best will be at her very low energy worst, and be way off her game-like she was at the DNC when her dull, joyless, uninspiring acceptance speech put poor husband Bill to sleep;  or at worse (and less likely) she'll suffer another medical event that, depending on its severity, could kill her candidacy. Hopefully for her the room temperature at Hofstra will be under 77 degrees to eliminate the chance of fainting again from extreme, unbearable heat. LOL!

Either way Donald Trump will dominate tomorrow's historic event as he did the Commander-in-Chief Forum 19 days before.

 BTW, how can anyone wish ill-health on a woman (old beyond her years) already terribly sick-whose energy, stamina and strength are so poor and unfit for the presidency that she'd fall flat on her ugly, lying, twitching face if she campaigned half as hard as Donald "The Wall" Trump?





Hillary Clinton Awkwardly Shouts Her Way Through Speech: ‘Why Aren’t I 50 Points Ahead?!’ | Mediaite

Hope springs eternal for those Clintonites who have been demoralized of late by their candidate's bad health events and     disappointing performances at interviews, rallies and especially at the Commander in Chief Forum where she failed to best Donald Trump and 63% verses 37% saw the billionaire as the more presidential candidate.  I've been told that "Hillary's lead has been increasing daily for the last week." I've been told, "Even the LA Times "poll," the only one that showed Trump having a significant lead, has him falling from a 6-point advantage to just 2."  When I point out that the one and only  Nate Silver "raised Trump's chances of winning from 3% in early August to 48% today," I'm told that my info is outdated, and that Silver has reduced Trump's chances to below 40%." And that is true. He now gives Trump a 36% chance of success down 12 points from last week.
But why then pray tell is SICK ILLARY'S "increasing lead" not giving her the positive, upbeat, confident aura of a winning candidate, such as Trump has abundantly? Why is she blowing a trumpet with an uncertain sound looking miserable, wretched and down? What is she seeing  and what does she know that is worrying her so? That made her so bat sh*t crazy yesterday frantically raving like a loon that her lead over Trump was too small? That it should be 50 points tall?

Could it be the landslide, double-digit enthusiasm gap reported by CNN and  Washington Post that's troubling her? That Trump's supporters are far more inspired, energized and likely to vote than her's? Apparently the weakest, worst, most uninspiring Democrat candidate since Dukakis (who was physically fit and didn't have her baggage) fears she won't turn out the vote in November. That too many will stay home, or vote for Johnson or Stein (or maybe cross over to Trump). "Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm," said Emerson. And SICK LOW ENERGY ILLARY doesn't have any.
If this doesn't explain SICK ILLARY's unnerving lack of self-confidence and esprit (she was completely, depressingly unhinged yesterday) then what does? Failing health? The fear of more public coughing fits and collapses? Her campaign logo ominously resembles a hospital direction sign. Is it a sign of what's to come if she exerts herself too much in the weeks ahead? If she campaigns too hard does she fear ending up in a sick-bed recovering from extreme fatigue or worse? In 2015 SICK ILLARY told NBC that she finds campaigning "incredibly demanding and exhausting."
And since she launched her campaign on the 70th anniversary of FDR's death (a terribly ill man when he died) her bad health and low energy have got progressively worse. If SICK ILLARY when campaigning exceeds the limits of what her poor stamina and strength can physically endure it could prove fatal to her campaign, or maybe to her life; she could end up dead like FDR America's last president from New York.
In August SICK ILLARY did 11 campaign rallies to Trump's 32. Why? My guess is that she couldn't do more without pressing her luck and hurting herself. Tireless, indefatigable Donald Trump is an incredibly young 70 (he says he feels 35 and campaigns as if he were). On the other hand, sick, tired, spent ILLARY is an old 69-aged badly by four grueling years as secretary of state where she traveled just under a million miles, and practically burned herself out making a mess of the world. Now 17 months of campaigning has obviously taken its toll on her health. Seven more weeks of this (pushing herself to the edge to significantly widen her lead) could decimate her badly weakened immune system and be her ruin. Is this what is troubling her? Is this why she shrieked yesterday that her lead wasn't big enough? Suffice to say does this explain her painful lack of self-confidence and spirit as she heads toward the first debate? If not, then what?  


With the race tightening nationally and in key swing states she has to unwillingly redouble her efforts to pull ahead and risk triggering multiple pneumonia fainting attacks or coughing fits from year round mysterious allergies. And if the very thought of Trump sickens her (as she coughingly said in Cleveland) what will she suffer when she's face to face with the physically larger and more powerful "xenophobic racist" ogre?


She can't be looking forward to the debate next Monday.


GOP memo: Trump won't be as polished as Clinton in debate | TheHill



Clintonites tell me that Hillary is going to mop the floor with Trump at the debates. But how could she do this when she's too weak to lift up her broom stick to whack him?



The Bar Gets Lower: Media Reinforce Double Standard For Trump Ahead Of First Debate - Media Matters 




And guarding the gates is a weak old sick miserable unhappy warrior princess who faints from 77 degree heat when she's not coughing herself to death-from allergies, or pneumonia, or the flu, or the thought of the barbarian himself (which triggered a coughing fit on Labor Day). Face reality folks: unless the merciful gods intervene we will shortly see the fall of Obamastan./sarc.





Hillary is the weakest, dullest, lest inspiring Democrat candidate since Michael Dukakis-who Bush crushed in a landslide. While Trump is the strongest, most inspiring, charismatic GOP candidate since Ronald Reagan-Bush's boss. Just as Reagan defeated GHW in the 1980 GOP primaries the Reaganesque Trump beat his son ridiculing his low energy persona-just like he's doing to hyper low energy HiIlary. Oddly, the 1988 election where Bush beat Dukakis fell on November 8th, this year's election date.



On a lighter note, Paul Ryan warned Pappa Bush that voting for Hillary will have consequences: he'll never go sky diving with him again.


Foreign diplomats on edge over Trump | TheHill






any worse than it is?


Which president and secretary of state were the greatest enablers of post-Soviet Russian power since the fall of the Soviet Union? And which have been the greatest enablers of radical Iranian terrorist power since the fall of the shah? And which midwifed the birth of the Islamic State by intervening in Libya and pulling our troops from Iraq? Could Trump do any worse than these two clowns? These diplomats should welcome change.

Media Response To Latest Analysis Of Trump’s Tax Plan: It “Screws The Middle Class”

One glance at Trump's gold-plated, marbled, Versailles-styled residence tells you that he's not going to relate to the "middle class."

Did you think a community organizer would relate to middle class workers who is ideologically hell bent on "economic justice" for the poor at their expense?



Trump-Clinton debate expected to shatter ratings records · The Hill  






at the debate will be kept under 77 degrees lest Hillary be in danger of fainting from pneumonia again. But If  (God forbid) this should happen  from other causes (the stress and strain of the debate for example) compassionate Donald will rush to her side and administer CPR. Then afterwards be accused of sexually assaulting her.






BREITBART: Palestinian Terrorist's Wife to Address Clinton Foundation


No Holds Barred: Hillary’s Clinton’s troubling relationship with Israel-hating adviser - Opinion - Jerusalem Post

Palestinian teacher Hanan Al Hroub at a ceremony where she received the Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize in Dubai, March 13, 2016. (Varkey Foundation via JTA)  

 Anti-Zionist educator and mind poisoner of Palestinian children Hanan al Hroub was honored by the corrupt, pay to play Clinton Foundation last night. While denying Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state this evil, twisted but very cunning Moslem snake teaches a non-violent approach to destroying it.

View image on Twitter

A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote against Israel and its right to exist as a Jewish state. If you are pro-Clinton you're anti-Israel. PERIOD!  While the wife of weak-on-terror Bill Clinton (who forced Israel in the 1990s into disastrous, war-causing "peace" talks with Palestinian terror master Yassar Arafat) was condemning the New York/New Jersey WMD bombings the corrupt, deceptive Clinton Foundation announced it was honoring anti-Zionist Palestinian educator Hanan al-Hroub and letting her address the Clinton Global Initiative which she did yesterday several miles from the Chelsea bombing. 
Bill Clinton was certain he had brokered a peace deal between the Israelis and Palestinians that Arafat couldn't refuse.  But Arafat predictably stabbing Clinton in the back refused the deal and went to war against Israel instead because the deal couldn't be used to destroy Israel.
Al-Hroub is the wife of Palestinian bomb maker Omar al-Hroub, a terrorist chemist who provided chemicals used to make bombs to kill Israeli Jews, and in 1980 participted in a terrorist shooting attack in Hebron that killed six innocent religious Jews and injured 20 others who were walking home from synagogue on Sabbath. For his murderous hate crimes Omar spent ten years in an Israeli prison when he should have been executed. Omar's wife Hanan, a recent recipient of the $1 million Varkey Foundation's Global Teacher Prize, denies, like her Jew hating husband, Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state, and, like him, wants it destroyed; but she differs with him on the method and means. While violent militant Palestinians like Omar want to blow Israel off the face of the earth and obliterate every last Israeli Jew the more pragmatic Hanan (learning from her husband's mistake) is striving to achieve the same evil end by non-violent means, as outlined HERE.
Hillary giving Yassir Arafat's wife a kiss shortly after she launched an anti-Semitic blood libel accusing Israeli soldiers of shooting Palestinian children for their body parts (see).
The Clintons in honoring this vile bigoted anti-Israel Pali "educator" is proof of their ill-will toward Israel; that they share Hanan's evil goal of destroying Israel peacefully, gradually, by degrees by first transforming Palestinians into a non-violent people as a tactic in winning  international support for the return of millions of Palestinian refugees to Israel. Indeed, Hanan believes, like all Islamic supreamcists, that Moslems have a divine right of ownership to all Israeli lands; that they have the deed to those lands signed by God himself called the holy Koran. Based on passages from that book they believe that all lands conquered by Moslems eternally belong to them even when their expelled*. And that Israel (or Palestine as they call it) is unlawfully and immorally occupied by Jews who must either be killed, expelled or politically dominated as an oppressed minority in a greater Arab state. This Koran based belief is at the root of the Arab-Israeli conflict that goes back over 80 years.
* In addition to Israel belonging to Islam Moslem radicals claim Spain, Southern Italy, Crete, Georgia and other lands once conquered by Moselms still belongs to them and will be their's again.
Mad Max Blumenthal and his I Hate Israel Handbook.
Other signs of the Clintons' hidden anti-Zionist agenda is their association with and high regard for Israel-hating author Max Blumenthal (see). Son of Clinton confidant and former aid Sid "vicious" Blumenthal, Max (loved and supported by his dad) has written extensively on the need to destroy Israel peacefully through economic boycotts, non-violent resistance and slanderous propaganda. Demonizing Israel as a "Nazi State" "no different from ISIS," because of its "oppression" of Palestinians (they're self-oppressed by their hatred of Israel), Mad Max ignoring the facts of history perversely believes that Israel is the villain in the conflict; that it's at the crux of all or most of the problems plaguing the Middle East; and that true peace in the region won't be achieved until Israel ceases to exist. Moreover, joining the Clintons in their esteem for Mad Max is none other than Jew hating neo-Nazi bigot David Duke and other Aryan supremacist scum who can't get enough of this guy (see). Alan Dershowitz urged the Clintons to distance themselves from the Blumenthals warning that they could be a liability for the 2016 election. His warnings to date have been ignored. Hopefully this will be exploited by Trump in the debates, along with the Hanan al Hroub event which his campaign has condemned as disqualifying Hillary for the presidency.
Hillary has the audacity to criticize Israel for its lack of compassion toward Palestinians and treat PLO leader Abbas (a warmed over Arafat) as another Anwar Sadat. 
Moreover, a second Clinton presidency means a third term of Barack Obama the most anti-Israel US president since the founding of the Jewish state*. That Obama shares the radical left's anti-Zionist belief that Israel's nonexistence would be a blessing for the peace and stability of the region is proved by his laughably false view that Israel-hating Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is a true man of peace and peace partner for Israel. Truth is Abbas is no Anwar Sadat, but a Yassar Arafat with a friendlier face. Unlike the assassinated Egyptian leader who was a real peacemaker and courageous peace partner of Prime Minister Menachum Begin's (their Camp David Accords have endured for decades). Abbas like Hanan al-Hroub and the Blumenthals (father and son) demand a right of return of all Palestinian refugees as a condition for peace. In falsely promoting Abbas as another Sadat and real deal for Israel (when they know better) Obama and Clinton reveal themselves as Israel hating snakes; just as hell-bent on nonviolently destroying it as is Abbas (and the others) by political and diplomatic means.
*Obama's spiritual mentor was Reverend Wright a Jew hating, Hamas supporting, anti-Zionist bigot.
In short, Hillary Clinton, like Obama and her successor John Kerry, is a false friend of Israel. And it can't be repeated often enough that she is a pro-Palestinian radical in disguise as extreme as Max Blumenthal; and a vote for her, as I said above, is a vote for the destruction of the Jewish state.

The closest thing we ever had to a lifeless corpse running for president told an  unenthusiastic crowd at Temple University yesterday that the campaign is "depressing" her. The real concern is if she loses the election will she turn suicidal?

Hillary Clinton, the sickest, most lifeless presidential candidate in US history, who fainted from 77 degree heat on 9/11, whose acceptance speech at the DNC was so lacking in esprit that it put her husband to sleep, who's stamina is so poor she could only do 11 rallies in August (compared to Trump's 32), said to a crowd of millennials at Temple U that she found this campaign "discouraging" and "down right depressing." Why are her spirits so low? Why can't she stay positive, upbeat and strong? Why isn't she a happy warrior having fun instead of looking like she's drugged on downers half the time? Why? Because her opponent is a big bad deplorable ogre who "incites hatred and violence like we've never seen before in a campaign." He's the barbarian at the gates of Obamastan threatening the building of utopia.

 Could it be that what she really means is that she hates the violence that running against  Trump is doing to her health and mental well-being? That he's overwhelming her with his superior strength, stamina, energy and aggressive political incorrectness? That she can't keep pace with him? That he's "down right" exhausting her and wearing her thin? That she despairs to win the up coming debates because unpredictable Don (a weak debater) survived 11 contests with stronger, smarter candidates and  won (against all odds) his party's nomination? Is that what's depressing poor, cheerless failing Hill? The thought of letting down family and friends? And the millions of voters who lukewarmly support her and will have to drag themselves to the polls in November?
But what if she wins? What then? What will the "violence and hatred" of America's enemies do to her physical and mental well-being? If Trump's rhetoric is making her so down right miserable and ill (she blamed her coughing fit in Cleveland on him) what will killing, beheading, pillaging ISIS do to her spirits? What depressing effect will mass murdering Bashar Assad have on her if he continues the carnage, and Putin if he dares invade another country? Or Hamas if they rain down missiles on Israel again?  Doesn't the weakness, bad health and depressiveness Hillary's showing in this race disqualify her for office? Doesn't it tell us she's just as unfit for the presidency as she was for secretary of state....which she admitted was too exhausting, and certainly made her sick (see)? If Hillary could go back in time it is likely she'd refuse Obama's offer to head State because of the toll it took on her health and strength. And if she loses the election it can then be said that it was Barack Obama (in a very real sense) who defeated her again.

Happy, vivacious, high energy Hillary wows us again with her inexhaustible, upbeat, can do mentality.

Obama thanking himself on a declining Keynesian economy while blasting Trump for his proven Supply-Side solutions.
Last week Barack Obama (perhaps the worst economic illiterate of any president since liberals Herbert Hoover and FDR) while campaigning for sick, crooked Hillary Clinton at a rally in Philadelphia blasted Donald Trump for claiming that his pro-business, pro-growth, Supply-Side, free market policies (that boomed the economies of the 1920S, 1960s and 1980s) would benefit common, working class Americans and create millions of new jobs. And to undermine Trump's argument that he's mismanaged the economy Obama resorted to his usual trickery using provably false economic data.
Look at the spike for 2015 in household median income and tell me it looks real.
Indeed, Obama citing (as you will see) manufactured statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau (shown above)  boasted that because of his borrow, tax and spend policies (which have worked for no one) American workers for the first time since the Great Recession got a nice pay raise last year; that 2015 showed a robust, record-breaking increase in  median household income of 5.2% (with a corresponding 1% drop in poverty).
Obama thanking himself said that this statistic proves that Trump and his GOP critics are wrong; that the economy, in fact, is roaring back along with the eroding, struggling, disappearing middle class. And when someone in the crowd reminded him about the low price of gasoline he thanked himself again as if his energy policies were its cause, when they had nothing whatsoever to do with it*
* It is totally laughable for Obama to take credit for the market crash in oil prices when it is wrecking havoc on the global warming movement and green energy industry, and causing more burning of fossil fuels (see).
Now this drop in oil prices is nothing to sneeze at as it's been a huge, welcome tax cut for consumers saving them billions in energy costs. But it's not coincidental that Obama's boasted 5.2% boost in "median household incomes" last year was preceded by falling oil prices (which began in 2014); for the two are inextricably linked. 
If the economy is doing so well as Obama claims then why is Fed Chief Janet Yellin (left) refusing to raise interest rates (see)? 
Indeed, rising economic growth, increased wages and better paying jobs had nothing to do with Obama's so-called 5.2%family pay hike. Why? Because it hasn't happened. We are still in a low growth, bad jobs economy where wages are flat with no end in sight (see). In fact, this "pay hike" is not what it seems and what Obama wants us to believe; what it is in fact is an increase in DISPOSABLE INCOME (what remains after your bills are paid) cleverly disguised as a rise in household income (what you earn from your job), and caused mostly by the crash in oil prices.
*Looked at another way, if Obama's 5.2% "family pay hike" of 2015 were real, or if real it carried over into 2016, the GDP wouldn't be declining so badly.
This is what I mean. If quitting smoking saves me money on buying cigarettes that is not an increase in my income (but it is for Obama). Likewise, if I'm spending less money to gas up my car or heat my home that is not an increase in my income (but it is for Obama).  Indeed, what I save on cigarette or energy costs increases my amount of DISPOSABLE INCOME (giving me more purchasing power)nothing more. It's not a "pay raise" or increase of my income, as Obama implies that it is when thanking himself.

But two months before an election and with Donald Trump rising in the polls a desperate Obama fearing for his legacy is manipulating statistics-as he routinely does with unemployment (which is actually double the official rate as  Bernie Sanders even says, see).  With help from a politicized Census Bureau Obama is trying to deceive the public that the promised, robust, Reagan-like recovery is finally materializing; and that if we stay the economic course and change nothing by electing sick, crooked, status quo Hillary the economy will continue to revive and prosperity arrive. Obama's (and Hillary's) message is this: "Just keep on borrowing, spending and running up massive debt and we'll "build an economy that works for everyone"-which is impossible, dangerous and economic nonsense.
Indeed, we've heard this song and dance again and again for seven years now: that the "great Obama economic boom is just around the bend." And it's as false and phony today as it's ever been. The truth is, as a worried Obama knows, the US economy is in a sad state of gradual, slow motion FREE FALL. You heard me, I said "FREE FALL," as in crashing by degrees. For behind Obama's happy talk of success the economy is getting progressively worse, as you'll see from the evidence below.
Indeed, the bad news is this: despite the trillions borrowed and trillions spent, despite the trillions and trillions printed by the Fed, despite the unsustainable deficits and trillions in debt, and a rigged, manipulated 18,000 Dow (designed to create a false wealth effect), we've had FIVE STRAIGHT QUARTERS OF FALLING GDP (Gross Domestic Product which measures the health of the economy). That means 15 consecutive months of the worst recovery since the Great Depression getting steadily worse-as the nation growing poorer and less productive seems headed toward another economic crisis.
United States GDP Annual Growth Rate | 1948-2016 | Data | Chart ...
Proof the economy is trending downward.
Indeed, look at the chart above from Obama's Bureau of Economic Analysis (see) and compare it to his bullshit. In April 2015 the GDP, as you see, was growing fairly impressively 3.3%. But since then it's been all down hill. For at the start of July 2016 GDP growth was at a sorry, pathetic, anemic 1.2%-that's a drop of 2.1% in 15 months with the economy slowly crashing to the ground, seeming to be recession bound. And our idiot, lying president is congratulating himself on this? It's hilarious. Truth is if there weren't a massive oil glut driving down fuel costs-if supply didn't way outstrip demand with the Saudis, Russians and Iran having too much oil on their hands-Obama's phony, smoke and mirrors stat of 5.2% wouldn't even exist; and he'd have to invent some other trick to help sick Hillary, and make a case for continuing his policies.
After seven years of a weak, trickle growth, bad jobs economy-kept that way by massive debt, an out of control regulatory state and high corporate tax rates-the evidence is overwhelming: Obamanomics (aka Keynesianism) has epically failed in its promise to stimulate a strong, butt kicking surging recovery. 
Trump has vowed to follow in the successful, pro-growth, business friendly Supply-Side economic footsteps of JFK and Ronald Reagan   (see).
But Donald Trump's solution for fixing the economy is what reversed a depression in the early 1920s, prevented a sixth post-war recession in the mid 1960s, ended the malaise      of stagflation in the 1980s, and rescued Sweden from socialist collapse in the 1990s. After seven years of Obamanomics we're relearning the same old truth spoken by Ronald Reagan in the 1980 presidential race, and proved by the policies of his administration: "Government is the problem not the solution."

Chart for disposable personal income for 2013 and 2014. You will notice it markedly improves in 2014 when the crash of the oil market began. The question is with purchasing power increasing for Americans why isn't it translating into GDP growth? The most reasonable answer is the high cost of Obamacare, food inflation and paying down of massive personal debt (averages out to $54,790 per citizen, see).  

Slower QvQ GDP growth is not a decline in GDP; it's slower growth. A decline in GDP would be when the aggregate $$$ amount is less than that which was previously measured. That would be indicated by a NEGATIVE number not a POSITIVE number.

Apollo speaks...when he really should listen...


 LOL!!! Every recession is preceded by a steady decline in the rate of economic growth. An economy that is progressively growing slower and weaker in productivity and wealth creation is trending toward stagnation. Given our ballooning $19 trillion plus fiscal debt, $100 trillion plus in unfunded liabilities, an out of control regulatory state costing the economy $100 billion per year, high corporate tax rates and stifling regulations inhibiting capital investments for business expansion, Dodd Frank making borrowing a nightmare for start-ups and small businesses, the hidden taxes of Obamacare weakening the middle class, etc. etc our stagnant bound, trickle growth, bad jobs economy is perfectly understandable.


 For Donald Trump campaigning is healthy physical exercise; for SICK ILLARY it's incredibly physically exhausting and sickening as she herself said (see).
 In August indefatigable, Iron Man Donald Trump averaged a little over one rally per day with an average of 6200 people attending each event. While sick, pneumatic, low energy Hillary averaged just under one rally every three days with an average of 892 people attending each event. In short, Trump did 3x as many rallies as Hillary and attracted 7x as many people. I'll say it again: If SICK ILLARY were to campaign half as hard as Trump she'd likely collapse on her face from extreme exhaustion.
This has been a presidential campaign year of many firsts. We have a charismatic, anti-elitist, billionaire business man with zero political experience massively covered by a hostile press as a xenophobic racist bigot (the barbarian at the gates of American civilization) defying the odds and capturing the GOP nomination against establishment opposition and 16 seasoned rivals. Then there's crooked, corrupt, incompetent, above the law, elitist, stay the course, status quo Hillary (arguably the most mendacious presidential candidate ever) becoming the first woman to capture the nomination of a major party; and the first such nominee to put their spouse to sleep when giving their party's acceptance speech. 
Trump is an extraordinarily young 70 years old. SICK ILLARY is a very old 69 years old.
Now for the first time ever in a presidential race we have what can be called the "health trust gap" between the candidates as a possible factor on Election Day in deciding Obama's successor. Because of Hillary's fainting spell on 9/11 caused by anyone of six explanations (allergies, overheating, dehydration, pneumonia, the flu or  poisoning by Trump and Putin) voters were asked which of the two candidates were being least truthful about the state of their health. And surprise surprise, by a landslide margin of 13 points (Clinton's 50% to Trump's 37%) they distrust Hillary more. 
But this is so unfair. Shouldn't the voters give Hillary the benefit of a doubt that she's being more honest than Trump about her health? And that as sick as she seems and is Trump might be less medically fit to be president? After all, Hillary not Trump released her tax returns for 2015; and if he's concealing something not illegal or criminal but politically hurtful then what is it? What dark little secret could he be hiding about his health that he doesn't want us to know? For all we know the "toxic," Make ("White") America First candidate who's "poisoning the minds of millions of Americans with racism and bigotry," mainstreaming hatred of lawbreakers, illegal aliens, Moslem terrorists and cop killing black thugs, might be carrying the Bubonic plague, or some other deadly contagious disease that could kill millions. Never has there been a candidate so "revolting, vulgar, vile and mean." So why couldn't he be hiding a deadly infectious disease? Maybe he's Putin's weaponized Manchurian Candidate for destroying America? LOL!
Look at all the harm a medically healthy Barack Obama accomplished in eight years (with SICK ILLERY's help). Imagine what a sick President Hillary could do in four?
Seriously. Voters should have sympathy for poor, old, low energy, sick Hillary. They need to understand that if she isn't quite the same healthy, robust, upbeat candidate of 2008 it's because, as Colin Powell said, she "practically worked herself to death" on our behalf as Obama's secretary of state. Those four grueling years knocking the hell out of herself trying to reset American foreign policy after the wreckage of the Bush years (and without  success) has taken its toll on her health-and underlies her coughing fits, collapses and memory lapses.
Indeed, unlike Donald Trump who never held public office Hillary, the most traveled secretary of state in US history (her greatest feat), has earned the right (bad health and all) to be president. Woodrow Wilson had a stroke, FDR polio and JFK a wrecked back; and what Hillary is hiding can't be worse than that. And Obama agrees, and why shouldn't we? Hillary has vowed to continue Obama's legacy of ashes, disaster and dust (America hasn't been punished enough), and you don't need to be a specimen of human health to accomplish that. Never mind that American foreign policy is in shambles, and the world today is going to hell. What counts is that Hillary exerted herself (depleting her health and strength) more than any other SoS traveling a whopping 957,000 exhausting miles in just four years. It's a miracle that she's alive today. Certainly when going to the polls in November this record world traveling should count for much with voters-as she has little else to run on.
But wait a minute. Truth be told. Turns out this claim too is false; turns out it's another Clinton hoax advanced by herself and the main stream press to impress us that she's a great, tireless public servant who'll work just as hard as president. Truth is the record for most miles traveled by a US SoS belongs to Condi Rice (Clinton's predecessor). Truth is Rice expended more energy and sweat and worked harder than Hillary-103,000 MILES HARDER-as she racked up a total of 1,060,000 diplomatic air miles in under four years*(see). While then Secretary Hillary (in an Esquire interview) bitched that the job was too exhausting for her (and she couldn't take another four years,
see) Rice, on the other hand, never complained and seemed to love the job, and would do it again if called on to serve.
*Rice also holds the record for the most days traveled, 326, by an SoS in a four year term. She beats Clinton by 20 days. Clinton however traveled to more countries. As Rice beats Clinton in two of three categories that makes her the most traveled SoS. 
Ken Krammer posted this in the comment section:
"Apollo my friend, it's true that Condi Rice was more traveled than Hillary Clinton in the two categories that you cite : air mileage and days traveled. But she has been surpassed in both by John Kerry. Nevertheless, that Hillary was the most traveled is, as you say, a Clinton lie and media hoax."
Is Kerry complaining about exhaustion and fatigue like SICK ILLARY did?
The old tired face of a burnt out exhausted bankrupt liberalism. 
God! Is there anything real about this woman? Anything at all? Only a fool would trust what she says about her health: that it's equal to the staggering demands of the presidency when it fell way short of what was needed to be an effective and competent secretary of state; and after Hillary's 9/11 collapse (preceded and followed by distortions, distractions, cover ups and lies about her health) most voters aren't buying her bull as the trust gap shows. And if sick, old, tired Hillary (the exhausted face of a burnt out liberalism) shows up for the debates lacking strength, looking ill and less presidential than Trump, GAME OVER! Election Day will be another shellacking like 2014 when Obama and the Dems couldn't turn out the vote and were crushed across the country by the GOP. That means a Donald Trump Presidency, and a bigger Republican Senate and House, to reverse the decline of the Bush and Obama years and


It's amazing that severe dehydration caused by blistering, record breaking 77 degree NYC early fall weather put the Clinton campaign under water overnight. I'm surprised Hillary didn't blame her collapse on global warming. Perhaps if she weren't getting millions from Big Oil she would have (see) .  
what should she do to prove to an increasingly distrustful and skeptical public that she's physically and medically fit to resume her campaign for the office of the presidency? In a piece written two weeks before her collapse (which I predicted HERE ) I suggested that to prove that she's healthy and fit for command Hillary should do something athletic like jogging around a city block ten times; or doing 20 laps in her swimming pool at Chappaqua; or playing tennis with daughter Chelsea, or a round of golf with Obama and hubby Bill   (see). But none of these strenuous things would be practical or advisable for a low energy woman just climbing out of a sick-bed as it could cause a relapse and prove fatal.
However, there is something much less strenuous that Hillary could do that would take just a few minutes of her time; and have a tremendous impact on the public and shut up her critics on the left and right. What I have in mind is dancing. Yes, dancing. Getting up and dancing with husband Bill, or Chelsea, or anyone to this steaming, frenetic 1950s hit by Rock n Roll wild man Jerry Lee Lewis.
This in your face tune (with "pneumonia" in its title) is only two minutes long. Not enough time, I believe, to cause dehydration followed by a fainting spell.
 I greatly believe that seeing Hillary going wild and dancing up a storm (showing this much energy and life again, see) is all she need do to restore confidence that she's back on top of her game and ready to take on Trump for the presidency. What do you think?
it is tragic and deplorable what is happening to her health in her power mad quest for the White House. Forced by a tightening presidential race (and the indefatigable, tireless, Herculean Donald) to campaign harder than her energy, strength and stamina can endure she's turning into a medical basket case of exhaustion, coughing fits, memory loss, dehydration and fainting spells. It is truly tragic and deplorable what she's putting herself through and doing to herself (damaging her health and lying about it) to win the presidency. Is it really worth killing herself for? Apparently she thinks it is. How much longer before this happens:
Bill Clinton told Charlie Rose that on the morning of September 12th  a fully rested Hillary rose out of bed looking like a million bucks as if nothing had happened to her the day before. The only problem is she couldn't recollect the fainting event of the day before, and was surprised to learn of it from Bill./sarc
On September 12th Tim Kaine said in praise of Hillary that her energy level is so staggering that he has`trouble keeping up with her. Is he then more sick than she is? Anyhow, we saw` at the DNC dynamic Hillary's staggering energy level at work when her acceptance speech embarrassingly put husband Bill to sleep, with Kaine trying to block the view so the cameras wouldn't see it.

On September 12th 73 year old Joe Biden challenged Donald Trump to accompany him on a health run saying, “I’d like to jog with him, but don’t think he could keep up." Perhaps Biden is right. Perhaps he's in better physical shape than Donald Trump. And perhaps Biden is regretting his decision not to run for the presidency now that Hillary is looking more like a loser with each passing day.

But health wise what is certain is that if Hillary (who told NBC last year that she finds campaigning "incredibly exhausting") were to criss cross the county like the tireless Trump (who finds the race exhilarating and is having the time of his life) and campaign just as hard (doing up to three rallies per day) she'd likely wind up desperately ill or dead having worn herself out. And then Biden could step in to carry on.



Ground Zero for the implosion of the Clinton campaign?
Hillary Clinton's campaign logo turned into the 9/11 al-Qaida attack on the Twin Towers. Appropriate for the wife of the President whose weak on terror policies were largely responsible for the catastrophe; and who as secretary of state turned the US consulate in Benghazi into a 9/11 death trap.
When a sick, weak, run down, exhausted Hillary Clinton left the 9/11 memorial service yesterday, and then fainted on the way to her car, not only was it the 15th anniversary of 9/11 but the 4th anniversary of Benghazi as well-both events having the name CLINTON written all over them.
Indeed, the catastrophic 9/11, Islamo-Pearl Harbor, kamikaze sneak attack was 60 months in the planning: 53 months under the weak-on-terror Clinton administration (with five major al-Qaida attacks preceding it), and 7 under George Bush (who continued Clinton's weak-on-terror policies and inherited a badly weakened national security system that al-Qaida easily defeated).
And 11 years later despite may warnings was the successful, coördinated, pre-planned terror attack on the Bengahzi consulate; designed to coincide with and commemorate the 9/11 event by killing Americans it was largely the fault of Hillary Clinton and her poorly and incompetently run  Department of State.
As big government liberalism is going broke the era that began with the New Deal is at an end. But America needs a strong patriotic nationalist leader like FDR.
 Is it then possible that yesterday's medical debacle (shattering the cover up of Hillary's health lies) was a prophetic warning to the nation from On High that a second Clinton presidency would be a national security disaster? Or was Providence at work yesterday stopping the Clintons, making sure they wouldn't return to the White House? Was Hillary's "pneumonia" related fainting collapse, caught on camera by a pedestrian (reporters weren't allowed to follow her), telling the nation and world that the 45th presidency is not in her future? That as Donald Trump, myself and others have warned: Hillary lacks the energy, stamina, strength and will power to be the right president at this critical time in American and world history. That she lacks the right stuff to be an effective president, leader of the Free World, and reformer of Washington's corrupt political culture. That she's the creature of the status quo (big government, big banks, big pharma, big oil, etc.) and doesn't have it in her to radically alter the disastrous course our country and the world is on.
Is Donald Trump favored by Providence to become the next strong POTUS from New York after FDR? With each passing day it's beginning to look that way.
In other words, was Providence telling us yesterday that Donald Trump on November 8th has a "Rendezvous With Destiny" at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? That Trump not Clinton will be the next New Yorker after Franklin Roosevelt (our greatest war-time president next to Lincoln) to be Commander-in-Chief? The name "Clinton" is stamped on two 9/11 events, the death of thousands and loss of $billions; can we risk having it on a third?  




Yesterday marked the fifth anniversary of the "Miracle on the Hudson" when US Airways Flight 1549 safely crashed landed in the Hudson River with no deaths and minor injuries to its 155 passengers and crew. The crash occurred just hours before President Bush delivered his farewell address to the nation; and as you will see from my Townhall article below this miracle had the 9/11 event stamped all over it, giving the impression that it was a divine (providential) tribute to George Bush's presidency-as well as a warning to Barack Obama about the War on Terror and national security.

 Yesterday the Senate released its damning bipartisan report on the deadly 9/11 al-Qaida attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi (see). Because of Bengahzi and the subsequent cover-up and lies, as well as Obama's disastrous foreign policy of retreat from the Middle East with al Qaida expanding in influence and territorial control, Obama will go down in history as failing to live up to Bush's exemplary post-9/11 record on national security. Just before he leaves office there will be no miracles like Flight 1549.

(Published on Townhall 1/17/09) 
 I find it tremendously meaningful, significant, and providential that President Bush's moving, heartfelt, gracious Farewell Speech summing up his eight eventful years in office, with its focus on the war with Islamo-fascist terror and national security, was delivered just hours after the miraculous crash of Flight 1549-when a heroic commercial pilot who served in the military safely landed the damaged plane in the frigid waters of the Hudson River saving himself, his crew of four and a 150 passengers. I find it significant and providential to the President and his stewardship for the following reasons:

1. One of the fortunate passengers John S. Howell of Charlotte, North Carolina was brother to a firefighter who died on 9/11.

Flight 1549 at Battery Park near Ground Zero.

2. The plane once evacuated drifted down river from midtown Manhattan and came to rest by the USS Intrepid before it recommenced its journey south to Battery Park where amazingly it stopped by Ground Zero as if moved to that spot by the hand of God (see note 1).

3. As the Pentagon was one of three buildings attacked on 9/11 it is fascinating to note that January 15th (the day of the crash) was the 66th anniversary of the Pentagon's dedication ceremony, the construction of which began September 11, 1941 (see).

 4. 1549 crashed or splashed down in the Henry Hudson River named after the English explorer who discovered Manhattan Island on September 11, 1609 (see).

The heroic pilot of 1549, Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger (born in Bush's state of Texas), was clearly emblematic of George W. Bush who steered our nation to safety after 9/11 by going on the offensive and bringing the war to the enemy in Iraq and Afghanistan, and greatly strengthening our domestic surveillance state to stop future attacks. The President sent our troops to war to fight our Islamic foes abroad so we wouldn't have to fight them here at home; a wise decision in my view that surprisingly kept us terror free for seven years foiling several deadly al Qaida plans to do more evil.

If a less capable man had commanded 1549 there might have been a tragic outcome where hundreds could have died with the plane crashing into the Bronx or the Upper West Side or falling fatally into the brine killing everyone aboard. As the right man was flying the plane that day so was George Bush the right man to be Commander in Chief when al Qaida struck our shores and the Twin Towers were destroyed. As a sign to the nation that George Bush's presidency was not an accident or mistake (that he was destined to be our 9/11 President) he was in Sarasota Florida the morning of the attack; that was the state that brought him victory in the closest presidential race in US history.

Indeed, the man who was born in July (the 7th month of the year), on a Saturday (the 7th day of the week), at 7:26 AM (the 7th hour of the day), was elected President on the 7th day of November in the Sunshine State of Florida (a 7 letter state shaped topographically like a 7). Moreover, Florida, at the time, was governed by his brother (who is nearly 7 years his younger (see)) when, by the skin of his teeth, he was elected president 43 winning 25 electoral votes; oddly, 25 and 43 are variants of the number 7: 2+5=7, 4+3=7 (see note 2).


Moreover, when President Bush was in Florida that terrible but fateful September morning ("Septem" is Latin for 7) he was 7 months and 22 days into his presidency (see). And the three great buildings that were struck that day, the 5 sided Pentagon and 2 Twin Towers, once again give us the number 7 (5+2=7). And lastly, 26 days after this deadly attack the President Bush ordered the bombing of al Qaida and Taliban targets in Afghanistan, thus beginning the Global War on Terror. This epoch making day, a day that changed world history, was the 7th of October. And lastly, the Hudson River Miracle occurred 7 years and 11 months into Bush's presidency (see).

 This uncanny pattern of numeric signs seem intelligently designed and are indicative, I believe, of Bush's providential destiny as one of the most consequential and transformative presidents in US history; signs of a man who reversed one thousand years of Mideast politics when he shocked and awed the region into change by ordering the downfall of the very mad and dangerous Saddam Hussein.

In a mysterious way the miraculous safe landing of 1549 was a gift to George Bush...a fitting tribute to his presidency on the day of his farewell; perhaps a tribute given by our Maker to a man who served us well, whose leadership out-performed a thousand Captain Sullys; who history will remember centuries from now as the man who brought freedom to fifty million lives, shook up a stagnant, backward, regressive region resistant to change and brought safety and security to a nation under seige-keeping us safe for 7 years (no mean feat).God bless you George Bush, President 43, and may your successor continue your conscientious work in keeping us strong, safe and free. 


 It was at first believed that flight 1549's two engines had fallen from the plane and were lost in the Hudson River. But as the plane was pulled from the water it was discovered that only the left engine was lost having sunk into the river; and that the right engine, though badly damaged, was firmly attached to the plane. Could this be a sign of things to come for the Democrat Left and the badly damaged Republican Right in the years ahead? With Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the Left weakening and damaging our country's security, economy and foreign policy and sinking in public esteem? And with the Right surviving the political crash of 2006 and 2008 and returning to power to rebuild America on sound conservative principles? The Left can't govern and the Right will come back and 1549 seems prophetic of that.


1. Steve Fink writing for WCBSTV.COM, New York said: "The plane eventually came to a rest in the water by the USS Intrepid, before drifting south on the Hudson and stopping at Battery Park, by Ground Zero, ironically."

2. It is interesting to note that Bush's first stab at public office began in July of 1977 the 7th month of the 7th year of the 7th decade of the 20th century when he announced his candidacy for Congress. Amazingly, the election date for that Congressional race was the 7th of November 1977. 1977 was also the year when Bush fell in love with and married Laura Welch who he first met when a student in 7th grade back in junior high.


April Knight posted the following interesting observation in the comment section:

"Apollo: I just noticed another numerical peculiarity with the Hudson Miracle. It happened on the 15th of January, the flight number was 1549 and there were 155 people aboard. The flight number 1549 is one number short of 1550. Just thought I’d mention it." 

Thanks. Also 1549 with its 155 occupants crashed into the Hudson at roughly 3:31 PM…or 15:31. Moreover, when 43 (Bush's presidency number) is multiplied by 36 it generates the number 1548, one digit short of 1549 the number of the crashed Hudson River Miracle plane. 
 Last night as I was watching the film Sully (absolutely terrific) I learned that on the to do list for flight emergencies (in Captain Sully's manual) landing the plane on a waterway was listed as number 15.



If tired, old, incompetent Hillary Clinton follows Barack Obama into the White House we'll have a fourth (and possibly fifth) term of Jimmy Carter; and this at a time when ironically Carter himself says America is a declining superpower "inevitably" losing credibility, influence and prestige on the world stage (see).

It is absolutely certain, as the facts indisputably prove, that Donald Trump, CNN and Forbes Magazine are correct in their assessment of Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama; that the Russian KGB strongman (villain though he be) has comparatively been a stronger and more effective leader for the Russian people (and on the world stage) than has been our weak, retreating, passive, lead from behind, failed, reset appeasing, apologetic president for our declining country.


BEHOLD! the great enabler (with Hillary Clinton) of post-Soviet Russian power; and the greatest enabler (with Hillary) of radical Islamic terrorist Iran since Jimmy Carter and fall of the shah. 


America is a rudderless nation without purpose, direction and aim adrift on a sea of growing troubles. While the Russian people want to make their country great again and have a tremendously popular leader hell-bent doing just that. Mike Pence defending Trump said it best: "Obama [I paraphrase] is running the longest, unprofessional amateur hour show since Ted Mack." And he'll go down in history as one of our worst presidents.





Indeed, it is a fact (denied by Obama Kool-aid drinkers) that Russia today under Putin (thanks to Obama and Hillary) is more prestigious internationally and commands more respect than at any time since the end of the Cold War and collapse of the Soviet Union; and that the aggressive, pro-active, Make Russia Great Again Vladimir Putin, taking full advantage of America's vacuüm-creating retreat, overshadows (sad to say) Obama as a world leader. It's as if Obama is the great anti-Reagan boosting and enabling Russian power where Ronald Reagan greatly diminished and disabled it pushing Soviet Russia over the cliff into bankruptcy and ruin; what Putin called "the greatest geo-political tragedy of the 20th century" that he's now hell-bent on reversing.



Just look at the facts from the very start when Obama was running for president in 2008, and how terribly misguided, wrongheaded and delusional he's has been about himself, Putin, Russia, Assad, Syria and much, much else.



 With unintended help from the great confused blundering enabler Vladimir Putin is making Russia great again; he's slowly, carefully, methodically reestablishing his country as a world power. And the Russian people love him for it despite the economic loses it has caused.



Both Forbes above (see) and CNN below (see)

   rank Vladimir Putin as the "world's most powerful man."






During the 2008 presidential campaign Team Obama said about their fresh, charming, charismatic candidate that his opposition to the Iraq War (the "dumb war" as he called it) was all the proof the American people needed that they could trust his judgement on international affairs; and that he'd make a better, smarter, more effective foreign policy president (using "smart power" and "soft power"*) than the neo-Con interventionist George W. Bush-undoing eight years of disaster and restoring America's prestige and image in the world.

*Walking softly and carrying a tooth pick


Hillary Rodham Clinton,


 During an April 2008 campaign rally in San Francisco Obama when asked by a reporter about John McCain and Hillary Clinton criticizing his lack of experience in international affairs boasted, “Foreign policy is the area where I am probably most confident that I know more and understand the world better than Senator Clinton and Senator McCain (see)."


 Vice President Joe Biden is


In October 2008 at a Seattle fundraiser Joe Biden effusively praised Obama as being a man with an unbreakable "spine of steel;" and predicted that as president he'd prove equal to and triumph over any overseas test and challenge to US power coming from "Russia, the Middle East or wherever (see)."


Merkel and Biden at the Munich 

Biden at Munich Conference.


In February 2009 at a security conference in Munich (the city of war causing appeasement which set the stage for World War II) Biden announced that resetting relations with Russia would have a high priority with the Obama administration. Three days later, as an ominous sign of failure to come, a US and Russian satellite collided catastrophically over frigid Siberia-as if anticipating a new period of conflict with Russia and cold war. This type of collision never happened before (see).


Putin shakes hands with 


Astonishingly, in July 2009 Joe Biden in an interview with the Wall Street Journal confidently predicted that "an economically and politically weakened Russia would have no choice but to coöperate with America and bend to our [Obama's] will (see)."


Obama cancels European missile


Portentiously in September 17, 2009 (70th anniversary of Joseph Stalin's invasion of Poland), in a major appeasement-reset move toward Russia, Obama and Clinton shocked our allies by canceling the deployment of a missile defense shield to Poland and Eastern Europe (see). Vladimir Putin delighted with the move praised Obama for doing "a very brave thing."




In 2011 with the Arab Spring revolt spreading to Syria (its violent phase inspired by Obama's intervention in Libya) Obama said that Russian/Iranian ally Bashar Assad "had to go." But compared to what he did in Libya to bring down Kaddafy Obama did little or nothing to make that happen (see).


 Kaddafy dead. Killed by rebels. Believed by Obama and Hillary to be mass murderer Bashar Assad's just fate.


In 2012 with tens and thousands of Syrians dead Obama and Hillary Clinton confidently predicted that 'Assad's  days were numbered." In other words, Obama and Clinton were predicting that Assad (the worst mass murderer and war criminal of the 21st century) would share Kaddafy's fate and eventually succumb to US backed rebel forces who'd prevail like their Libyan counterparts. 




In August 2012 an optimistic Obama confident that Assad wouldn't dare use his huge stockpile of illegal chemical WMDs drew a red line in the sand warning him of dire consequences if he crossed it and used them. Defiantly Assad used them and horribly killed people. Obama did nothing except (with Putin's help) negotiate a worthless treaty with Assad where he agreed to destroy his entire stockpile of WMDs and the infrastructure used in making them. Since then Assad (using chlorine gas) has defiantly launched new chemical attacks on his people and has given up and destroyed only a fraction of his WMD stockpile and none of his infrastructure. In fact, Assad (like Saddam Hussein) still employs his WMD  and nuclear scientists* keeping them on the government payroll (see)


*In 2007 Israeli war planes destroyed an illegal Syrian nuclear weapons plant being built with help from North Korea and Iran (see).


Assad, Putin, and the Smart


The vital role Russia played in negotiating Syria's (worthless) Chemical Weapons Treaty (prelude to the worthless Iran nuke deal) led Obama to believe that it foreshadowed a partnership with Putin in peacefully removing Assad from power and bringing democracy (which Putin hates) to Syria. 


of last night's debate.


In his October 2012 debate with Mitt Romney Obama said that his rival was wrong about Russia being America's "number one geopolitical foe" and that he was stuck in a "cold war mentality." The one who was "stuck" however was our delusional president on the stupid notion that his cowardly reset butt kissing of Putin would pay off; and he would win over his heart and mind making him a partner and ally (see and see). 



August 1, 2013, a defiant Vladimir Putin ignoring pleas and warnings from the great enabling appeaser in Washington grants traitorous NSA whistle blower Edward Snowden asylum in Russia for "12 months." It's now three years and Snowden is still there.




In 2014 a mortified Obama his reset agenda in ruins predicted that Russia would be isolated politically, diplomatically and economically if it continued its aggression against Ukraine and annexed Crimea (see).


‘Surprise’: Russia orders U.S. airplanes out of Syrian airspace as it begins airstrikes on anti-Assad rebels, not ISIS · Twitch




Then in October of last year Obama predicted that a geopolitically supercharged and surging Russia was stepping into a military "quagmire" in war torn Syria. At the time I raised the question, "After so many failed predictions and bad calls on Russia, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Afghanistan, al Qaida, ISIS etc. what are the chances that the man who boasted seven years ago that foreign policy was his strong suit is right about a coming disastrous "quagmire" for Russia in Syria?" I  correctly answered






'We surrender!
Putin's bombing campaign has overwhelmed us.' 

the Muslim self-rule law.
 Syrian rebels captured by Putin and Assad.
 Yeah, for Russia it's 1979 Afghanistan all over again under its heedless, Make Russia Great Again, neo-imperialist leader. If only he had listened to the brilliant, farsighted, Nobel Prize winning mastermind in the White House Russia wouldn't be in the pickle it's in today./sarc.
The great blundering foolish enabler of post-Soviet Russian power on the right (failed at bending Russia to his will) getting no thanks from hard, cold KGB Putin.
What's sealed is Bashar Assad, the greatest mass murdering war criminal of the 21st century staying in power.  
Giving away to Russia 20% of our uranium reserves as an ass kiss to Putin to ensure his cooperation in the worthless Iran nuclear deal and to hugely enrich the Clinton Foundation.









She's the first human being diagnosed with All Seasons Allergy Cough Syndrome (ASACS). As there is no known cure for ASACS  (perhaps as a pay to play favor to the Clintons Big Pharma is working on it) Hillary when debating Donald Trump runs the risk of coughing her guts out (as she did in Cleveland) and jeopardizing the election. What ASACS precisely is, is fully explained below. 
 ASAC Syndrome Hillary hacking it up on the ground.
Sick, weak, unlikable, uninspiring Hillary (the worst Democrat presidential candidate since Michael Dukakis) has to be the unhappiest, most miserable and fearful candidate ever to run for the White House. Why? Because her worst fears heading into the first debate with 900 pound, healthy as a horse, charismatic, confrontational, unpredictable  Donald Trump are being realized. Indeed, with her post-convention bounce collapsing and the race with Trump tightening the woman who told NBC News (seethat she hates campaigning because "it's incredibly exhausting" has now got to fight harder for her political life and exert herself to the utmost. That means running the risk of wearing herself out (weakening her immune system) and becoming very sick, or depressingly drained and fatigued. No happy warrior she.
ASAC Syndrome Hillary hacking it up in the air.
From the end of the Democrat convention to Labor Day Hillary was betting that Donald Trump would completely undo himself and implode; and that she'd have an easy, no sweat, unobstructed path to the presidency. And so to conserve her limited energies and physical strength Hillary virtually went on vacation. Taking it easy and focusing on private fundraisers she did as little heavy campaigning as possible and stuck to her policy of doing zero press conferences. But the indefatigable, hard campaigning Donald Trump (who unlike Hillary loves campaigning and very large rallies), changing his style and looking every bit more professional and presidential, has come bouncing back from his slump in the polls just as I and others predicted (see).
And on Labor Day when the traditional lift off for the fall campaign began Hillary got off to an ominously bad start; at a rally in Cleveland (where Trump against all odds was officially nominated the GOP nominee) a sick, hoarse sounding Hillary, joking that she's allergic to the very thought of Trump, suffered a massive, alarming coughing attack (one of many) that lasted over four minutes, and practically ruined the rally. But it didn't stop there. As Hillary afterwards on her plane trip to Tampa was talking to reporters at a press gaggle about Russia and hacking ironically her hacking cough of hours before returned with a vengeance; and it was so bad and out of control that she had to withdraw from the gaggle until she recuperated.

hillary doctor 4

Hillary looking like hell having one of her bad health days - walking with her medical handler (right) in case she faints..

And it was then that another one of mendacious Hillary's lies was exposed: that her coughing (according to her and her doctor) is due to "seasonal allergies." For there is two small problems with this diagnosis: 1) Hillary's coughing has been perpetual as if she has a cough for ALL SEASONS. Indeed, winter, summer, spring, and now in the fall, we've seen Hillary make medical history and cough up a storm with a first ever year round seasonal allergy cough; or, what I call, All Seasons Allergy Cough Syndrome (ASACS)
-as if hay fever season was 12 months a year, and unique to Hillary.  
Dr. Drew gravely concerned over Hillary's health feared she may have suffered brain damage from her concussion of years ago. HLN rewarded Drew's empathetic concern and humanity for Hillary by firing him.
 And 2) on Monday after the Cleveland rally when her coughing fit resumed it was aboard a jetliner that was equipped (like all such planes, and especially Hillary's) with a high quality, high performance air filtration system that removes dust,  microbes and ALLERGENS. In other words, it is now conclusive and irrefutable that there's a cover up underway; that Hillary and her physician are lying about her health and hiding the reason for her perpetual multi-seasonal coughing fits that are occurring with increasing frequency.
As Hillary and her doctor are obviously lying about the cause of her cough what then I wonder is the reason for her low energy problems and proneness to fatigue-the reason she hates campaigning (and refused a second term as secretary of state, see)? I don't have a clue, and don't care to speculate. But one thing is certain: against her will Hillary, between now and the first debate, is being forced by Come Back Donald to campaign harder than she wants to. And what that likely means, to say the least, is that she'll not be at her best when face to face with the "beast."
 Between now and the debate you will likely see Hillary deteriorate physically as she wears down her energy, stamina and health (expect more coughing fits) struggling to regain her lead in the polls and win over independents (who are massively for Trump), and the undecided 5% who haven't made up their minds. Indeed, by the first debate Hillary could be in such a badly weakened state and so painfully ineffective (like her DNC speech that put husband Bill to sleep) that Trump will completely overshadow her (like he did Mexico's President Nieto) and crush her significantly pulling away from her in the polls. And this would have the effect of forcing Hillary to campaign much harder, pushing herself to the limit and putting her health at even greater risk.
Indeed, if the very thought of Donald Trump makes Hillary ill what then will she suffer when he'll be too close for comfort just several feet away on the debate stage? How will indefatigable, larger than life, "toxic" Donald with his aggressive charisma, massive ego and powerful "negative," "racist," "hate filled" vibs psychically affect Hillary and her fatigue-causing hidden medical problems? Indeed, Hillary knowing the truth about her medical condition-the issues that underlie her forgetfulness, fatigue and coughing fits-can't be looking forward to debating Donald Trump after hard, exhausting campaigning.
Why would it be best for Hillary not to debate Trump?
 It's her health stupid!
The unpredictable, defiant, rule breaking, in your face Donald could so upset and stress out Hillary with his antics (or by keeping her on the defensive by pounding away at her lies, corruption and failed record as secretary of state) that It could trigger a psycho somatic reaction causing some kind of medical crisis on stage-coughing      spasms, fainting or worse.  
Victorious Donald after first debate with Hillary (right) in New York. 
This is not farfetched. Possibly ominous of a coming traumatic medical event for Hillary is her campaign logo which resembles a hospital direction sign. Indeed, between now and Election Day the constant stress and strain of hard debilitating campaigning combined with headaches and worries from mounting scandals and Wikileaks revelations, could combine to so badly damage Hillary's heath that she could wind up in a hospital needing to recuperate from extreme fatigue. If that should happen then GAME OVER. Few voters will doubt that healthy, robust, Herculean Donald Trump was right about Hillary "lacking the energy, stamina and strength for the presidency;" and they will put him in the White House.

If you can't take the heat of a presidential race get out. The White House is much worse. 



Ronald Reagan and Mexico's President Portillo. 
This is absolutely mind-blowing. Over at the Weekly Standard Philip Terzian wrote a short piece praising Donald Trump's "game-changing" trip to Mexico where for the first time he stood side by side with a world leader and astonished both supporters and critics with his very presidential and statesman-like performance. It was a masterstroke. I am certain that what we saw was Donald Trump's presidency in embryo (the amateur rapidly learning and maturing) with Mr. Terzian rightly saying he was Reaganesque. In fact, as Terzian points out, just 15 days prior to his inaugural president-elect Ronald Reagan ( the "amiable dunce" who critics warned would make a dangerous, bumbling, embarrassing president) went south of the border to meet with then Mexican President Lopez Portillo (which no president-elect had done before) and handled himself masterfully and diplomatically (see).
 Donald Trump and Mexico's President Nieto.
Curious about Reagan's meeting with Portillo I then did my research on him and the visit and to my amazement discovered what looks like an auspicious providential sign for Trump and his gravity defying campaign. What I found was this: On June 16, 2015 when Trump launched his laughable, "sure to fail" chaotic presidential campaign - making illegal immigration and border security his key issues - it fell on the 96th (remember this number) anniversary of President Portillo's birth (see). In retrospect it was as if this coincidence meaningfully foreshadowed what no one could have anticipated just 14 months later: Donald Trump the GOP presidential nominee's triumphant, counter intuitive meeting with President Nieto where he looked like a  larger than life, fit for command Ronald Reagan.

 The question is this: was Trump's unintended launch of his campaign on the 96th anniversary of President Portillo's birth (making illegal immigration and border security with Mexico key issues) a prophetic sign that he's destined again to defy the odds (as he did in the primaries) and prevail in November as Reagan did in his come from behind victory over Carter in 1980? Oddly, just as Reagan met with Portillo (1-5-81) nine weeks from his election on November 4th Trump met with Nieto nine weeks prior to Election Day November 8th (see and see). Also odd and seemingly very meaningful and auspicious is that when Trump met with Nieto on August 31 it was the 45th month of his presidency*-the number of the next US President (see).  As Nieto extended an invitation to both Trump and Clinton could this possibly be a sign that the party who refused the invite on Nieto's 45th month in power isn't the candidate destined to be our 45th President? I don't know about you but these discoveries send thrills of optimism up my spine that Trump, like Reagan, is a Providential Man. 
*Nieto was sworn in as Mexico's 57th president on 12-1 -2012.
But here is where it gets even more profound. Portillo was born on June 16, 1920. 1920 was a presidential election year where Republican Senator Warren Harding from Ohio defeated Democrat Governor James Cox also from Ohio (and his running mate FDR). Indeed, this election year of 2016 is, what I call, a "SAME STATE CANDIDATE RACE," - the 4th such race in our history; this is where the nominees of the two major parties reside in the same state (Trump and Clinton are both New Yorkers) - which I wrote about HERE. And of the three previous same state candidate races (Lincoln/Douglas - Illinois,  Harding/Cox - Ohio and FDR/Dewey - New York) the 1920 race is the only one where the Republican nominee won and succeeded a two term Democrat president (Wilson held office from 1913 to 1921).
Amazingly and astonishingly Warren Harding early in his presidency signed into law the "Immigration Restriction Act." This was a temporary measure (that became a long-term deal lasting to 1964) setting quotas and preferences in limiting immigration into this country. Even more amazing when President Coolidge revised Harding's law was  three years later it completely banned immigration from all ARAB/Middle Eastern countries, as well as other parts of the world. You can't make this stuff up.
President Coolidge signing the Immigration Act of 1924.
On a lesser note, but no less fascinating, the presidential election years of 1920 and 2016 are tied together by the significant number 96 (mentioned above): for 1920 and 2016 are multiples of 96 20 and 21 times respectively. Just as taxation, the economy (which was depressed) and immigration were major issues in the 1920 race so are they today (see postscript below).
So the big question now is this: will Donald Trump, the most charismatic Republican presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan (called the Republican FDR), surmount the odds as he did during the primaries and triumph on Election Day becoming the first President from New York State since FDR? The polls at the moment don't favor Trump; but the signs (if signs they be) seem greatly auspicious and prophetic of victory. Much perhaps depends on the upcoming debates and the tragic course of events and surprises leading up to Election Day.  


The standard of living and the standard of citizenship of a nation are its most precious possessions, and the preservation and the elevation of those standards is the first duty of our government. The immigration policy of the U. S. should be such as to insure that the number of foreigners in the country at any one time shall not exceed that which can be assimilated with reasonable rapidity, and to favor immigrants whose standards are similar to ours. The selective tests that are at present applied should be improved by requiring a higher physical standard, a more complete exclusion of mental defectives and of criminals, and a more effective inspection applied as near the source of immigration as possible, as well as at the port of entry. Justice to the foreigner and to ourselves demands provision for the guidance, protection and better economic distribution of our alien population. To facilitate government supervision, all aliens should be required to register annually until they become naturalized........


There is urgent need of improvement in our naturalization law. NO ALIEN SHOULD BECOME A CITIZEN UNTIL HE HAS BECOME GENUINELY AMERICAN [caps mine], and adequate tests for determining the alien's fitness for American citizenship should be provided for by law........


The burden of taxation imposed upon the American people is staggering; but in presenting a true statement of the situation we must face the fact that, while the character of the taxes can and should be changed, an early reduction of the amount of revenue to be raised is not to be expected. The next Republican Administration will inherit from its Democratic predecessor a floating indebtedness of over three billion dollars—the prompt liquidation of which is demanded by sound financial consideration. Moreover, the whole fiscal policy of the Government must be deeply influenced by the necessity of meeting obligations in excess of five billion dollars which mature in 1923. But sound policy equally demands the early accomplishment of that real reduction of the tax burden which may be achieved by substituting simple for complex tax laws and procedure, prompt and certain determination of the tax liability for delay and uncertainty, tax laws which do not, for tax laws which do, excessively mulct the consumer or needlessly repress enterprise and thrift........

What was Hillary's first foreign policy test?
