PRO-CLINTON DEMOCRAT POLLSTER’S POST-ELECTION SURVEY FINDS ‘COMEY EFFECT’ AND ‘RUSSIAN-WIKI EFFECT’ DIDN’T AFFECT OUTCOME OF ELECTION

 

Zogby Analytics -- Post election poll results

 

John Zogby

Enraged, deranged, vicious "Not My President" Trump haters who feel cheated that Hillary Clinton lost the election and blame it on a combination of Russian interference using hacked DNC emails, and Jim Comey's renewed 11th hour  probe into Hillary's emails will hate this excellent underreported post-election poll that proves them flat out wrong. Professional pollster John Zogby (a radically left, pro-Clinton, Democrat Arab American) took a scientific poll on November 16th (eight days after the election) to determine when voters made their decision for whom to vote for. What Zogby found was this:

When did you make your decision for whom to vote for President?

A year ago 26%
More than a month ago 39
During the presidential debates 18
In the last week before voting 8 
In the 24 hours before voting 4
In the voting booth 3
Not sure 3

26% (29 million voters) made up their minds one year before the election; 39% (52 million) made up their minds prior to October 7th, the day the massive Russian-DNC-WikiLeaks email dump began; 18% (24 million) made their decision based on the three Trump-Clinton debates (September 26th, October 10th, and October 20th). In sum, according to Zogby 83% of voters (112 million out of 135 million) were completely uninfluenced by the WikiLeaks emails.

 

 

 

But what of the remaining 17% or 23 million voters who were still undecided after the last presidential debate, and made up their minds in the final days and hours of the campaign? Most analysts agree that this was the group that decided the election for change agent Donald Trump over establishment candidate Hillary Clinton; that late in the day they broke for Trump in the battle ground, swing states that mattered (Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan), and where Hillary was out polling him right up to the end. But why did these swing state voters break for Trump?

THE RUSSIAN DNC/PODESTA HACK

 Indeed, did the steady drip drip drip of the Wiki-emails throughout October disillusion hundreds and thousands of Hillary leaning voters in the three swing states causing them to vote for anyone but her? or not vote at all depriving her of crucial votes to the benefit of Trump?

 

The answer is an emphatic NO!. For many reasons it's practically impossible that WikiLeaks mattered with late undecided voters; and this is born out by Zogby who makes mention of a "Comey Effect" in his polling data (which I'll get to later), but not of a "Wiki Effect." Why the one and not the other when both were and still are hotly debated controversial subjects? The answer is simple: unlike the "Comey effect" Zogby, when questioning voters, couldn't find a "Wiki Effect." Either Zogby found that the impact of the stolen Hillary related emails was too slight to have any post-election interest; or it was completely nonexistent; and this is understandable given the nature of the emails.

Indeed, while the DNC/Podesta emails did provide the basis for a lot of negative stories about Hillary (and hilarious right-wing mockery and propaganda) they were no more harmful to her campaign than annoying little pin pricks; they weren't politically damaging like the criminal probe into her server and emails that she lied about to the public and unsuccessfully tried to the cover up. In comparison the emails were as nothing to the electorate who were accustomed to hearing much worse about Hillary.

TRUMP'S SEXUAL ASSAULT ALLEGATIONS VS. HILLARY RELATED EMBARRASSING EMAILS

 

 

Look at it this way: if Donald Trump's infamous, lewd Hollywood Access groper tape, (which surfaced an hour before Julian Assange published the DNC/Podesta emails), and subsequent multiple sexual assault allegations, failed to politically hurt or stop him (though a majority of voters believed they were true, see) what fatal political damage could Hillary have suffered from the Wiki stuff?

Indeed, which is worse and more offensive for turning off actual or potential voters? Trump's groper/assault scandal where women are demeaned as sexual objects and playthings? Or emails showing John Podesta bad mouthing Hillary and questioning her judgment? Or Hillary saying she wanted "a hemispheric borderless common market," "single payer healthcare," and that as President she'd implement gun control by executive order"? In other words, if "gropergate" scarcely hurt Trump with late undecided voters then what significant electoral harm could the Wiki-emails caused Hillary?

 

PUTIN THE KINGMAKER?

 

 

So where does that leave Vladimir Putin? True, he (and his Kremlin hackers) tried to interfere with the election  preferring Trump to Hillary. True he hoped that the Wiki-emails would help Trump's cause and even perhaps, serving as a distraction, counter the negative effects of the Hollywood Access tape*. But was Putin Trump's kingmaker? Absolutely not! And because Putin and the Wiki-emails had zero to do with Trump's victory Zogby couldn't find evidence of a "Wiki Effect" among the voters he questioned and omits it from his survey.

*It's no mere coincidence that on October 7th, when Julian Assange published the DNC/Podesta emails it was one hour after the Access Hollywood tape surfaced (see). It is also interesting to note that October 7th was Vladimir Putin's 64th birthday (see).

 THE COMEY EFFECT

 
Now while Zogby couldn't find a "Wiki Effect" negatively impacting voters about Hillary (which he certainly looked for when questioning them) he did find a fairly substantial "Comey Effect" in 38% or 51 million voters. But as I will attempt to prove using Zogby's polling data the Comey Effect may have somewhat changed the electoral vote count, but not the outcome of the election.
 
Zogby asked voters the following:
 

"Did the re-opening of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server  [on Oct. 28] have a negative impact, positive impact or no impact on your feelings toward Hillary Clinton as a candidate for President? "

And the result was:

Negative impact 30%
Positive impact 8%
No impact 58%
Not sure 4%   

Now according to Zogby 30% or 40.5 million voters had their feelings negatively impacted by Comey's 11th hour Hillary probe, which dominated the news cycle for nine days. And while 83% of these or 33.6 million already made up their minds who to vote for the question is this: did the remaining 17% or 6.9 million undecided voters decide the election for Trump based on the Comey Effect? At first glance it would seem so. For if we evenly divide these 6.9 million undecideds between each of the 50 states it comes to 138, 000 voters per state. Now with Trump's close victories in each of the three swing states that won him the White House way under 138,000 votes (Pennsylvania 44,000,  Wisconsin 23,000 and Michigan 10,000) it would appear that James Comey was Trump's kingmaker -- as Hillary Clinton believes.

TOP VOTER ISSUES

But Hillary is greatly, greatly mistaken. For when we factor in Zogby's data on the top issues that concerned voters (and especially the undecideds) we learn that Trump could have likely lost only one of the three key states due to the Comey Effect. In other words, as you will see, if Comey hadn't renewed the investigation into Hillary Trump would have won the electoral vote anyway.

According to Zogby top issues for voters were as follows:

Economy/jobs 32%
Taxes 5
Syria 1
Immigration 7
Trust/Truthfulness 11
Terrorism 8
The Environment 5 
Energy 1
The budget deficit 6
Social security 6
Medicare/Medicaid 4
Obamacare 8
Other (specify) 8 

 

You will notice that the top issue "Economy/Jobs" at 32% is followed by an issue relevant to the Comey Effect: "Trust/Truthfulness," and this intensely concerned 11% of the voters*. Now 11% of the 6.9 million voters who were negatively impacted by the Comey Effect and were likely swayed by the trust issue to vote for Trump (or one of the third-party candidates) over Hillary was 759,000 votes.

*Obviously the 32% were mostly financially insecure middle class voters; while the 11% were financially secure.

But the question again is this: did the 11% influenced by Comey win the presidency for Donald Trump (as Hillary and others believe) ? The answer is an emphatic NO! Whichever way I crunched the numbers (there's only two ways of doing this) it didn't add up to a win for Hillary.

For example, using the simple method of equally dividing the 759,000 Comey influenced/trust votes between each of the 50 states it gives us 15,180 votes per state. And 15,180 is only more (by 5180) than the margin of Trump's victory in  one of the three key swing states: Michigan (10,000 votes). Giving Michigan with its 16 electoral votes to Hillary does nothing to change the outcome of the election.

According to The Daily Telegraph Corey Lewandowski said that Comey's late investigation into Hillary related emails gave the Trump campaign "a little spring in their step." And so it did. But just a little; not enough to make a decisive difference.
 

However, when I used a more sophisticated method where I worked out the math on a state by state basis the result, beginning with Pennsylvania remained unchanged:

PENNSYLVANIA  

 

 

2,970,733 - Trump votes

505,024 - 17% undecided

151,507 - 30% Comey Effect

16,665 -11% trust top issue

44,000 - Trump's margin of victory

WISCONSIN

1,405,284 - Trump votes 

238,898 - 17% undecided

71,669 - 30% Comey Effect

7883 - 11% trust top issue

23,000 - T's margin of victory

MICHIGAN

2,279,543 - Trump votes

387,522 -17% undecided

116,256 - 30% Comey Effect

14,867 - 11% trust top issue

10,000 - Trump's margin of victory

  As you can see when taking the percentage of undecided voters in each of the three key swing states where Trump narrowly won, and then further reducing that number to Comey Effect voters, then reducing that to trust issue voters, again only in Michigan does it appear that the Comey Effect could have been the decisive factor helping Trump. In Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, as with the other 27 states Trump won, the overriding issue that put him over the top was the economy and jobs with financially hurting middle class voters angry over their declining fortunes. Only in  Michigan does it appear it was the trust issue influenced by the short-lived Comey probe that lost the state for Hillary.  

In sum, if there were no stolen DNC WikiLeaks emails, nor the 11th hour FBI Clinton email probe, Donald Trump would be exactly where he is today: 45th President of the United States -- but with less controversy about his historic, astonishing PROVIDENTIAL victory.

 POSTSCRIPT

 If Trump had been the status quo Democrat candidate pledging (as Hillary did) to stay the course and continue Obama's middle class damaging legacy, and Hillary was the Republican challenger pledging economic renewal, jobs jobs jobs and radical change to the disappearing middle class she would have defeated Trump emailgate, Comey Effect, her pervert husband and all.

These two leading Democrats both admit it was the economic plight of the middle class (not a Russian/Comey Effect) that lost them the Presidency (and Supreme Court pick) - and before that, leading up to it, the House, Senate, 13 governorships, and 1000 state legislature seats. Trump victoriously rode the crest of the Republican wave (that started in 2010) into the White House.

WILL TRUMP WIN REELECTION WITH LOWEST APPROVAL RATING OF ANY PRESIDENT IN HISTORY?

 
  
               
 
 
If you are sick, tired and bored to death as I am of hearing the constant drumbeat of Trump haters shouting with glee about the President's low approval ratings (as if it's a great post-election victory) then read the following for a dose of MAGA reality, and (if you need it) soul lifting inspiration.
 
 
Of Trump's last nine predecessors (going back to Ike) Ronald Reagan had the lowest early approval rating at just under 50%. And he turned out to be the greatest of them.
 
DONALD TRUMP HAD THE LOWEST APPROVAL RATING
 
of any presumptive Republican or Democrat presidential nominee in U.S. history. He then had the lowest approval of rating of any Republican or Democrat nominee in U.S. history. He then had the lowest approval rating of any candidate elected president in U.S. history. He then had the lowest approval rating of any president-elect in U.S. history. He then had the lowest approval rating of any inaugurated President in U.S. history. And now he has the lowest approval rating of any post-inaugural President in U.S. history. The question now is this: when Donald Trump wins a second term will  it be with the lowest approval rating of any reelected president in our history?
 
 POLLS BE DAMNED!  
 
THEY DON'T SEEM TO APPLY TO THIS UNUSUAL MAN!
 
I say it again: Donald Trump and his Administration are the odds busting, gravity defying, comeback-from-behind Tom Brady and New England Patriots of American politics. Keep the 2017 Superbowl in mind when you think that Trump is losing.

IS KIETH ELLISON CHOSEN BY ALLAH AND BARACK OBAMA TO HEAD THE DNC AND STOP THE “RACIST” TRUMP PRESIDENCY? (SARCASM)

 
 
 
 
 
 
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA,
 
the Secular Progressive, was the closest thing this nation ever had to a Moslem President. And 24 months before he took office Keith Ellison (born exactly 24 months after Obama on the same date*) was sworn in as America's first Moslem Congressman**. Could it be, is it possible that this is a sign from All Wise, All Knowing, Almighty, Compassionate Allah that Ellison is His choice (and Obama's) to head the DNC? And that he'd be as great for his party as was Obama? And he'll stop the "Islamophobic racist" presidency of Donald Trump, whom Ellison wants to impeach for his travel ban on Moslems and other bad things? 
 
* Obama and Ellison share the same birthday (August 4) two years apart (see and see).
 
**Ellison was sworn in as congressman on January 3, 2007. 24 months and 18 days later Obama was sworn in as President (see).
 
 
 
Forget neo-Nazi David Duke's KKK endorsement of Ellison. Support from Bernie Sanders, the self-hating socialist Jew from Brooklyn, proves that the congressman is no Israel hating anti-Semite like his right wing critics slanderously say. If Ellison is acceptable to Bernie no Jewish liberal should oppose him because he's of the Moslem faith.

But wait...no President since Herbert Hoover has been more destructive to his party than Obama. Since 2009 Democrats have lost the House, the Senate, the Presidency, 14 governorships, over 900 seats in state legislatures, and the next Supreme Court nominee (with Ginsburg to follow?).  And now they're on the verge of losing more and worsening the disaster if they make Keith Ellison DNC chief-which is fine with me.
 
 
 
YES, IT'S A SIGN
 
FROM ALLAH DIVINE
 
STICK IT TO TRUMP
 
AND HIS "ANTI-MOSLEM PRESIDENCY"
 
MAKE ELLISON HEAD OF THE DNC
 
TO CONTINUE OBAMA'S DESTRUCTIVE PARTY LEGACY
 
 
BUT I'M NOT DONE
 
 
While Ellison wants Trump impeached for his so-called Moslem travel ban, the plan it turns out (in its earlier more universal "racist" version) was endorsed by none other than Ellison's mentor in Islam: Louis Farrakhan-who strangely likes Donald Trump. You can't make this stuff up.

Are we now going to have 48 months of a chaotic Trump Presidency suffering setback after setback like the Patriots in the Super Bowl and again beating the odds winning reelection?

DONALD TRUMP’S SIX POINT MAGANOMICS PLAN FOR REVERSING THE WORST RECOVERY SINCE THE GREAT DEPRESSION, SAVING THE MIDDLE CLASS AND WINNING REELECTION

 

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S SIX POINT MAGA PLAN FOR ECONOMIC RENEWAL

DEREGULATION

DEPORTATION

REPATRIATION

TAX REFORMATION

TRADE RENEGOTIATION

BOOMING ENERGY PRODUCTION

 

 

TRUMP'S PATH TO 270 ELECTORAL VOTES IN 2020

 

will be easier for him than it was last year because of the following six point plan to radically reverse and supercharge our weak, trickle growth, bad jobs, high debt, overly regulated economy. 

 

POINT ONE

 

DEREGULATION

 

Red Tape Rising: Six Years of Escalating Regulation Under Obama | The Heritage Foundation

 

 

Repealing Obama's massive, growth inhibiting regulatory policies and anti-business executive orders (EPA's Clean Power Plan, Obamacare, Dodd Frank, etc.) will greatly unleash the pent up growth and huge productive power of Capitalism from federal restraints and add a conservatively estimated $100 billion per year to the economy.

 

 POINT TWO

 

DEPORTATION

 

 

Illegal Immigration Costs U.S. $113 Billion a Year, Study Finds | Fox News

 

 

The mass deportation of illegal aliens will save American taxpayers up to $100 billion on education, medical care, incarceration and welfare costs. It will also drive up wages (create better paying jobs for low skilled, poorly educated Americans) as they'll be less people competing for low end jobs with employers forced to pay higher wages (at least the minimum wage) to attract legal workers as the supply of illegal aliens dry up (see). 

 

POINT THREE 

 

REPATRIATION

 

 

 

The repatriating of up to an estimated $2.5 trillion of horded offshore U.S. corporate profits will be used for investment and job creating business expansion, while raking in at least $218 billion in new government revenues to repair our roads and bridges creating tens and thousands of good paying jobs.

 

POINT FOUR

 

TAX REFORMATION

 

 

 

The implementation of JFK-like pro-growth, pro-business, pro-family tax reform policies will hugely boost investment, productivity ($150 billion in higher output) and jobs creation while surging the government's revenue stream, as it did in the booming mid to late 1960s.

 

 

 

 Keep in mind these very same principles and policies ended the Wilson Depression of the early 1920s; likely prevented a sixth post-war recession in the 1960s (that Kennedy feared and was trying to avoid); ended the scourge of stagflation (economic stagnation with inflation) in the 1980s; and rescued socialist Sweden from Greek-like socialist financial and economic collapse in the 1990s. 

 

POINT FIVE

 

TRADE RENEGOTATION

 

What a Redo of NAFTA Could Mean For the Future of US-Canada Trade | Fortune.com

 

 

The renegotiation of NAFTA and other bad trade deals to create a two way level playing field will dramatically reduce our trade deficit, grow exports and create jobs.

 

 

 

 

 

POINT SIX

(added April 10)

 

BOOMING ENERGY PRODUCTION

And lastly, since Gerald Ford every US President has sworn and failed to achieve energy independence for our fossil fuel rich nation (see). And now we have a President who is hell-bent on unleashing America's energy potential, turning us into an energy hyperpower, creating tons of jobs and making independence a reality.

 

These anti-Leftist/Obamunist policies is how Donald Trump (continuing the legacies of Harding/Coolidge, JFK and Ronald Reagan) will reverse the worst and weakest economic recovery since the Great Depression, and create a roaring, soaring, high growth, all boats lifting economy.

 

In sum

 

MAGANOMICS 

 

absolutely will  

 

MAKE AMERICA PROSPEROUS AGAIN 

 

create a positive environment for business investing

 

rebuild our nation's crumbling infrastructure

 

unleash our staggering energy potential

 

save the vanishing middle class

 

and win the President a second term 

to complete what

he began

President Trump Reacts to Court Ruling on Travel Ban: See You In Court. The Security of our Nation is at Stake - Breitbart

Trump hating, obstructionist Judge James Robart

The anti-Trump obstructionist justices of the Ninth Circuit Court

Once upon a time liberalism was a treatable, curable mental disorder -- the cure for which was repeatedly getting mugged by reality until one became sensible. My cure came during the malaise and misery days of the Jimmy Carter years: the Iran Hostage Crisis, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan,  and the economic, military and geopolitical decline of this country turned me into a common sense, healthy minded, right thinking Ronald Reagan conservative. And I wasn't alone. But that was then. Now the malady of liberalism is chronically worse; today it is an untreatable, malignant brain eating disease that no dose of hard reality (however massive, strong and shattering) can cure. 

An instructive contemporary example of a hopelessly stupid brain eaten liberal is Jean Claude Juncker (above), head of the European Union. In the wake of the deadly jihadist truck attack on a crowded Christmas Berlin market that killed 12 and injured 50 last year Juncker said, and I quote, "that the best way to fight [Islamic] extremism is not with the rhetoric of exclusion [hatred of Islamic evil, mass, murder, intolerance and bigotry] that helps the extremists, but by [turning one's cheek and] continuing to receive migrants."

In other words, the rhetoric of inclusion, love and open borders, welcoming more anti-Western Moslems into our midst, is the best way to fight ISIS and al Qaida and all forms of murderous, militant, jihadist terror. In short, brain eaten liberals like Juncker believe that godless secular progressive humanism (regarded as a crime against God by normative Islam) is the answer; that if we hug Moslems hard enough and show them compassion, empathy and understanding, we will squeeze the jihad, hatred and distrust out of them and turn them into modern, civilized, 21st century people.

And such was the thinking of Barack Hussein Obama who, during his weak-on-terror-reign-of-error, responded to 13 deadly homeland Moslem terror attacks that killed 90 and injured 389 (see)*, and I5 foiled terrorist plots that would have killed and injured hundreds more, by boosting Moslem immigration by the hundreds and thousands (see and see). Reality be damned! Instead of being realistic about Islam (and the hundreds and millions of hate driven active and passive jihadists and fundamentalists worldwide)  pretend that it's a religion of peace, love and justice and tigers will magically turn into harmless pussy cats. 

*Also during Obama's reign the FBI was tracking 1000 plus jihadist suspects,  refugee chaos and crime engulfed Europe (see), and he received warnings from the FBI, CIA and NSA (and now from Bashar Assad) of ISIS and al Qaida infiltrating Syrian and other Mideast refugee flows (see).

And such is the mentality of James Robart and the three brain eaten, anti-Trump, left coast, obstructionist judges who usurping the absolute authority of the President (as given to him by Congress) to stop any and all foreigners from traveling and migrating to our country (U.S.C 1182 see) blocked a perfectly legal, moderate, reasonable executive order temporarily halting travel and immigration from seven dangerous Moslem lands: Iran, which sponsors terrorism (and is complicit with the Taliban in killing U.S. troops in Afghanistan (see); and Iraq, Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Sudan which are overrun by deadly terrorist violence.

6 of Trump's 7 dangerous Moslem countries for immigration have the honor of being in the top 9 of the Global Terrorism Index (see).

And how did these four partisan political hacks in black robes justify their illegal usurpation of executive and congressional power? By ignoring USC 1182 (the governing law of the ban) and creating out of thin air new, outrageous, unheard of laws protecting a new class of victims from big, bad "anti-Moslem" Donald Trump: the peoples of these seven Moslem countries. What did they do? Made the U.S. Constitution the law for Somalis, Iraqis, Iranians, etc. They virtually conferred on non-resident aliens (lacking visa and green cards) first amendment, equal protection and due process rights as if they were US citizens living or traveling abroad with the rights to enter this country at will. Indeed, it's as if these judges erased our borders with these countries and added seven new states to the 50 we already have. Judges can't get any crazier, irresponsible and dangerous than this. 

Boston judge’s ruling unblocking Trump travel ban highlights arguments the White House is likely to make on appeal | Beesquare

Massachusetts District Judge  Nate Gorton got it right: He found that there is a rational reason for the Trump administration’s policies. That federal Immigration and Naturalization Act [see Addendum] gives the president broad power over immigration. "The President's order," said Gorton, "provides a reasonably conceivable state of facts (which concerns national security) that could provide a rational basis for the classification. Accordingly, this Court declines to encroach upon the delicate policy judgment inherent in this immigration decision.”

I wonder, would these "so called judges" (who are social justice workers and legislators in disguise) have done the same to President Obama had he issued this executive order? Not a chance! They would have respected it in Obama's case, just like Judge Gorton did with President Trump. Indeed, contrary to Robart's and the Ninth's abuse of judicial power Gorton (citing, quoting and referencing USC 1182) dismissed a suit brought by the ACLU against Trump's ban ruling that it was (as we see above) perfectly legal, lawful and constitutionally sound (see). 

But Robart's and the Ninth's contempt for and hatred of Trump was greater than their respect for the President's office, the Congress, the law and national security; so they unlawfully challenged Trump's authority by illegally creating new laws to restrain him as if they were lawmakers in Congress.

A second Federal Judge in Virginia upholds Trump's ban - a stone's throw away from Washington where the Supreme Court will follow suit.
 
 

ISIS jihadists must have been firing their weapons and cheering wildly over the 9th Circuit's decision, as it now makes it easier for them to slip into this country to work havoc.

And it's because of insane, reckless, radical rulings like this (putting partisan politics above the constitution and national security) that the Ninth Circuit is the worst of the worst of the country's 11 Circuit Courts -- having (because of their poor judgment) the highest reversal or failure rate (80%) in appeal decisions argued before the Supremes, with many unanimous 9-0 rulings (see).

BUT THE QUESTION NOW IS THIS:

WHAT WILL BE THE FATE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S CONSTITUTIONALLY LEGAL, SO-CALLED ANTI-MOSLEM SEVEN NATION TRAVEL AND IMMIGRATION BAN?

The same fate as the confirmation of so-called "racist" Senator Sessions as Attorney General, and Trump's other constitutionally legal cabinet appointees:

VICTORY DELAYED BY HATE DRIVEN ANTI-TRUMP POLITICAL  OBSTRUCTIONISTS  

Jeff Sessions being sworn in as AG on February 9th, the same day that the obstructionist 9th Circuit Court upheld Robart's unconstitutional stay on Trump's ban prefigures its inevitable vindication and victory.

Judge Neil Gursuch 

Indeed, the 9th Circuit Court ruling on the 9th day of February is, I believe, a sign to the administration to delay appealing the ruling to the Supremes until Judge Gorsuch is confirmed and there are 9 justices on the bench. That's to play it safe as a 4-4 deadlock would leave the 9th's ruling in tact. But if in the meantime the administration rewrites and revises the executive ban and goes back to the 9th with a stronger case (as it seems to be doing), it will make no difference; like the first appeal, which was doomed from the start, it will fail all over again as these obstructionist judges are hell-bent on dealing Trump another defeat to make him look bad.  But it won't stop him. The score like the Super Bowl is Courts 27 Trump 3. And we all know how that turned out.

 But isn't it great fun watching powerless, frustrated Democrat senators, liberal left coast activist judges, hysterical doomsday crackpot warmunists, the gotcha anti-Trump media, progressive university and union heads, criminal sabotaging NSA leakers         and millions of angry, foul-mouthed, violent protesters trying to stop this odds busting, gravity defying, Tom Brady-like President from advancing his MAGA Agenda and war on radical Islam?

Million man anti-Reagan protest in New York

It reminds me of the millions of frightened nuclear freeze loons who uselessly opposed and marched against Ronald Reagan as he was renewing America's economic and military greatness and defeating the Soviet Union. The vast left-wing anti-Trump forces are an army of moral and mental midgets with pee shooters firing spit balls at an unsinkable battleship preparing to blast them to political kingdom come.  

ADDENDUM
Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

OBAMA UNDERMINES SUPREME COURT WITH LIES ABOUT CITIZENS UNITED RULING, MAKES TRUMP LOOK PERFECTLY RESPECTFUL AND FIT FOR OFFICE

 
 
 
 
"Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that I believe will open the floodgates for special interests – including foreign corporations – to spend without limit in our elections."
 
"Experts" on the US judiciary and Constitutional Law horrified at President Trump "disrespecting" rogue Judge James Robart and the purely political decision to halt his popular, rational, temporary national security ban on immigrants from seven Moslem countries (effecting only 15% of the world's Moslem population) designated (by the Obama administration) as terrorist hotspots are coming out of the woodwork to castigate Trump and question his integrity and fitness for office-as if he has no right to criticize judges. One expert told NBC News that:
 
"The concern is that repeated attacks on individual judges could diminish the confidence that people have that judges are ruling on cases in accordance with the law"
 
Another expert said "
 
"I don't know whether he [Trump] deliberately wants to delegitimize the courts..... It is possible he lashed out in an unthinking way. But certainly the effect is to damage public confidence in the judicial system."
 
And still another said:
 
""He may go down in history as somebody who ran a brilliant campaign but disgraced himself in office. The 'so-called judge' insult was just stupid and reflects badly on his knowledge of the legal system."
 
But where were these experts and their grave concerns about damaging the judicial system when a blatantly lying, conniving Barack Obama playing politics at his 2010 State of the Union lashed out in a fiery attack on five Supreme Court Justices ( Roberts, Scalia, Alito, Kennedy and Thomas) for their so-called "unconstitutional ruling" in the Citizens United case on campaign finance reform? Where did they question Obama's integrity, credibility and fitness for office when he made a completely false, straw man argument that the ruling "reversed 100 years of law" and "lifted a ban (which is still in place) on foreign, off shore corporations, and foreign special interests spending without limit on US elections."
 
If Obama (a so-called "professor" of Constitutional Law) wasn't intentionally lying to humiliate (for no good reason) these five justices then it meant he's an ignoramus on basic, simple, US corporate law; and that he didn't know that the US subsidiaries of foreign companies, incorporated under US law, operating on US soil, employing US workers and earning US dollars are 100% US companies with the same rights as US national comoanies. He didn't know, for example that Toyota USA is every bit as much a US car manufacturer as let's say Ford USA -- as Ford in Japan is a domestic Japanese (not a US) company.
 
 
But whether Obama was right or wrong never before in US history has a President used the State of the Union to publicly humiliate Supreme Court Justices-to the wild applause of irresponsible Democrat lawmakers who were present. What utter hypocrites are Obama and the Dems for piling on Trump for his perfectly lawful and moderate executive order; and calling a radical (pro-Black Lives Matter) leftist federal judge a "so-called judge" when he was simply calling into question his judgement on the issues of terrorist infiltration, national security and lawful use of executive power. Compared to what Obama did in 2010 Trump looks completely and totally respectful of the judicial system; and far more responsible and fit for the office of the presidency.
 
PERIOD!

BERNIE SANDERS CIRCUMCISED A THIRD TIME
 
 
Bernie (a disgraceful self-hating socialist Jew) was circumcised first at birth. Then by Hillary. Now by Ted Cruz in his CNN debate on healthcare where, America sucks Bernie ("we're not a compassionate nation," he says) villainized a small (struggling) business owner for not being able to AFFORD health insurance for herself and her workers; and empathetically said that those opposed to Obamacare and Single Payer "want people to die."  
 
What Cruz failed to mention, and should have to slap down Bernie even harder (and does he need it) is the underreported story that Single Payer Socialist Healthcare collapsed in his home state of Vermont. It required a doubling of state taxes in order to work and was rejected by Vermontans-one of the most liberal people of any state in the Union.

DONALD TRUMP AND THE MEANING OF THE COMEBACK CUBS AND PATRIOT VICTORIES FOR HIS PRESIDENCY

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 Tom Brady, the Donald Trump of the NFL, said after the Super Bowl …" We faced a lot of adversity this year and overcame it with a lot of mental toughness." And, of course, so did Donald Trump on the battlefield of politics as he went through a grueling, tumultuous 16 month presidential campaign and came out on top as did Brady in the Superbowl. Strong souls like Trump and Brady thrive on conflict and adversity and never quit until they win. 
 
The victorious Chicago Cubs in the 2016 World Series came back from a 3 games to 1 deficit, the greatest that is possible in that classic, to become the seventh team in 112 years to achieve it; and similarly the victorious New England Patriots in the Superbowl came back from an utterly staggering 25 point deficit, the greatest in that classic's 51 year history,  unlikely ever to be equaled or surpassed; and both championship teams are strongly (and I believe providentially) connected to the greatest, odds defying, underdog political phenomenon in US history since Harry Truman: Donald John "Comeback King" Trump-who is linked to both teams at the top by way of their supportive, Republican billionaire owners. And just as the Cubs victory as I showed HERE was an unmistakable sign prefiguring Trump's unexpected presidential election, similarly the Patriots' miraculous win anticipates his unlikely reelection in 2020 after a period of terrible crisis and adversity.
 
 
The Cubs and Patriots were two Trump associated miracles.
 
Now I am a lifelong baseball fan not a football fan and never watched the Super Bowl. But on Superbowl Sunday because of the politicization of that game (leftist nutjobs tried and failed to turn quarterback Tom Brady against Donald Trump see and Trump haters were massively rooting for the Falcons) I made an exception and watched it. And I'm glad that I did. For it was the most thrilling, jaw dropping sports event I ever saw; and, as you will see, it is emblematic and has meaning (like the World Series) for the course of Donald Trump's storm tossed presidency.
 
 
 
 
Indeed, prior to the game I wondered if the outcome of the World Series would repeat itself in this world championship football event. Thinking analogically I wondered would the Patriots (a team owned by Bob Kraft, Trump's dear friend of 20 years) be the World Champ Chicago Cubs redux-a team owned by the pro-Trump   (see) Ricketts family (Todd Ricketts is Trump's Under Secretary of Commerce)?

Indeed, I wondered: 'would the Patriots defeat the Atlanta Falcons in a manner similar to the Cubs coming from a 3-1 game deficit (just a week before the election and anniversary of Truman beating Dewey) to defeat the Cleveland Indians? In other words, would the Falcons be the first to score in the game (like the Indians won the first game of the World Series), and then go on to score big (just as the Indians had done winning the next two out of three games) against the Patriots before they'd collapse like the Indians and lose making the Patriots football's World Champion Cubs?

And it happened pretty much as I imagined and hoped it would. The Falcons were the first to score in the second quarter making it a 7-0 game; then scoring again making it 14-0. It was then I heard one of the Fox sportscasters say that "no team in the 50 years of Super Bowl history ever came back from a 14-0 deficit to win. 10-0, yes," he said "14-0, no." And to make matters worse, and more impossible for the Patriots, the Falcons scored again pulling ahead by a crushing  21 to 0, with the struggling Patriots managing to score a pitiful 3 points by halftime.

But in the third quarter the disaster grew significantly worse for the Patriots: the Falcons scored again making it a 28-3 game, thus widening their lead to a seemingly unreachable 25 huge points. "But it ain't over till it's over." As I never gave up hope for the Cubs, or for Trump on election night, I didn't give way to despair that the Patriots were finished and couldn't like Trump and the Cubs pull off an improbable, odds defying upset victory.

And then like the Cubs winning two straight games to even the series with the Indians at 3 a piece Tom Brady and the Patriots achieved something greater, bordering on the miraculous: after playing like amateurs they came alive and scored 25 straight points (7 in the third quarter and 18 in the fourth) to tie the game 28-28 and take it into overtime* -- where running back James White (ironically number 28) scored a two yard touchdown making the Patriots world champs again.
 Tom-Brady-jubo-020517-Getty-FTR.jpg
 
And when White scored and the Patriots won "the greatest game ever in Super Bowl history" I was thunderstruck by the similarity to the 7th game of the World Series-also "the greatest 7th game in history." For like the Patriots and Falcons going into overtime the Cubs and Indians with the game tied at 6 battled on into extra innings; then at the top of the tenth Ben Zorbrist delivered his tie breaking double driving in the 7th run.
 
 
As with the Cubs the Patriots' astounding victory was, I believe, providentially related to the Trump presidency as an auspicious sign of things to come after a time of setbacks, trouble and crises. Indeed, the victory of the pro-Trump, Ricketts' owned Cubs was to Election Day what the greater, more astonishing victory of the pro-Trump, Kraft owned Patriots is to the challenging time ahead for the President leading up to the 2020 election-which he will win having earned it by keeping his promise of
 
MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
 
 
 
Indeed, there are many propitious signs pointing to a second term for President Trump (see); but the Patriots' steep, unprecedented, come from behind, unbelievable climb out of a virtual football abyss in so short a time is the most striking and compelling sign of all. Those who support this President and his MAGA AGENDA must keep this game in mind when it seems that fortune has deserted him, and all seems lost. MARK MY WORDS, a time of terrible troubles is going to challenge President Trump to the utmost of his powers-and it could be starting now. Conquering adversity is a pattern with this man: in the 90s during the Clinton era he reversed and saved from bankruptcy his badly faltering real estate empire - and was hailed by the New York Times as the "Comeback King" for his accomplishment (see); and then during his 16 month presidential campaign he came back from extreme, brutal, unprecedented adversity (that would have discouraged, broken and crushed most candidates) to defeat Bill Clinton's corrupt, low energy, lying wife. I'll say it again to be clear: 
 
WE'RE IN THE FIRST 100 DAYS OF EIGHT MAGA TRUMP YEARS  
 
The World Series and Super Bowl are the signs that the Administration are the Patriots and Cubs rolled into one; and Donald Trump is Tom Brady and Ben Zorbrist quarter backing touchdowns and batting in game winning runs as he heads into the storm destined to emerge one of the great ones.

IF I WERE A NEO-NAZI WHITE SUPREMACIST I’D BE GUNNING FOR DONALD TRUMP (SARCASM)

 

 
SPICER IS RIGHT IN DENYING THAT TRUMP IS A WHITE SUPREMACIST, WHICH MUST MAKE MANY NEO-NAZIS VERY MAD.
 
 
 
INDEED, IF I WERE A NEO-NAZI WHITE SUPREMACIST I'D BE GUNNING FOR DONALD TRUMP
 
WHY?
 
For betraying the cause of the superior, chosen, God-anointed, destined-for-world-rule master white race. How? By denying that whites are innately (morally and mentally) superior to blacks, and all other races; by honoring Black History Month and praising anti-Confederate Frederick Douglas and anti-Jim Crow Martin Luther King; by keeping the ugly bust of MLK in the Oval Office overlooking the president's desk; by putting "crazy," "angry" black Ben Carson in the cabinet; by not pardoning heroic anti-black killer Dylan Roof; by vowing "to take care of our [mooching] Afro-American citizens," and fixing black inner cities with a "New Deal" costing billions-when trillions have been given them; by wanting to cut black-on-black crime and the soaring murder rate-it's way too low; by twice backing Jesse Jackson for President, and donating heavily to his Rainbow/Push Coalition (a grievous, unforgivable, monstrous sin see); by lifting the ban on blacks and Jews in his Palm Beach golf course; by being a filthy, scum sucking Jew lover (allowing Ivanka to marry a Jew) and  strongly supporting Israel - we side with the Arabs on this; and by making Jeff Sessions Attorney General -- he put Klansman in jail, and sent one to the electric chair.
 
 
And adding insult to injury Trump had the effrontery to order pizza from Herman Caine, and say that "Apprentice Celebrity" bitch Omorosa was a "the nicest person in the world." Thank God I'm not a White Neo-Nazi Supremacist or else I might become the next John Wilkes Booth, and shoot Trump dead.

My black friends are black pro-American nationalists. My Hispanic friends are Hispanic pro-American nationalists. My yellow skinned friends are Asian pro-American nationalists. My wife and lady friends are female pro-American nationalists. My 19 year old son is a teenage pro-American nationalist.

HILLARY CLINTON AND THE FASCINATING HISTORY OF POPULAR VOTE WINNERS WHO LOST THE PRESIDENCY

 

 
Over the course of the 2016 presidential campaign I have posted dozens of articles on this site anticipating and predicting from numerical coincidences, synchronous events and other extraordinary signs a Donald Trump victory in November; and concluding from the odds defying, historic, earthshaking outcome that Trump is a Providential Man and that Hillary was DESTINED to lose to him. 
 
But the other day the question occurred to me: was Hillary Clinton meant to lose in the unusual, frustrating and painful way that she did? Winning the national popular vote but losing the absolute majority of electoral votes?  The answer it seems is yes. The manner of her lose was foreordained.
 
 
Indeed, of our 58 presidential elections 2016 was only the fifth time in American history that the winner of the popular vote lost the election. And when I researched the four previous elections (1824, 1876, 1888 and 2000) looking for patterns and signs of intelligent design I discovered a complex of what appears to be signature effects of a Higher Power (chance can't explain it) prefiguring Hillary's fate: that she was destined to join Andrew Jackson, Samuel Tilden, Grover Cleveland and her husband's vice president, Al Gore as the fifth presidential candidate to win the popular vote but not make it to the White House. Beginning with the fateful day of Hillary Clinton's birth this is what I found. 
 
Hillary Clinton was born on October 26, 1947 (see) - a date, so it turns out, that has great significance in the history of unfortunate presidential candidates like her. For that day marked the 123rd anniversary of the start of what is inarguably the most amazing and unique presidential election in our history. This was when, for the first time, that the candidate who won the popular vote didn't become president. And that candidate was none other than Andrew Jackson, future founder of the Democratic Party and 7th President of the United States.
 
 
Now in the 1824 election the date October 26th was the first day of seven weeks of national voting (ending December 2nd) where the American people attempted but failed to choose their sixth president from one of four candidates: John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, William Crawford and Henry Clay. The voters failed to pick a winner because they failed to give any one of the four the required majority of 131 electoral votes that were needed at the time to win.
 
 
Indeed, when the votes were counted General Andrew Jackson, who was favored to win, outdid his three rivals, JQ Adams chief among them, in every category: he topped Adams in the popular vote 41% to 31%; topped him in the number of states won 12 to 7 (there were only 24 states at the time); and topped him in electoral votes 99 to 89. But because Jackson came up 32 votes short of the 131 needed, for the first time in American history (as required by the Constitution) the election was decided by the House of Representatives.  And there on February 9, 1825 213 Congressmen amazingly voted John Q. Adams the 6th President of the U.S. giving him 13 of the 24 states and Jackson 7 (see).
 
 
In other words, the incredible, unprecedented, never to be repeated 1824 election, which started precisely 123 years to the day of Hillary Clinton's birth, was the first in US history where the winner of the popular vote lost the election-as Hillary was to do 192 years later when defeated by Donald Trump. You can't make this stuff up.
 
 "
Now in the presidential race of 1876 (the 23rd in our history for the 19th presidency) Republican Rutherford Hayes defeated popular vote winner Democratic Governor Samuel Tilden by one electoral vote (see). Now Tilden like Hillary Clinton was a Democrat from New York (see). And as Tilden's loss made Hayes the 19th President (see), Hillary's loss made Donald Trump history's 19th Republican President (see). An amazing correspondence.
 
 
Moreover, as it was Hillary being Barack Obama's Secretary of State that played a large role in dooming her candidacy (because of Benghazi, emailgate, the collapse of US foreign policy and the job weakening her health) it is fascinating to note that Tilden died on August 4, 1886-exactly 75 years to the date of Barack Obama's birth*.  
 
*Obama was born August 4, 1961. 
 
 
That brings us to the presidential race of 1888, the third where the loser, like Hillary Clinton, won the popular vote. And that loser, President Grover Cleveland (who lost to Indiana's Benjamin Harrison) was, like Tilden and Hillary, a Democrat from New York. Moreover, as the Hayes-Tilden presidential race was the 23rd in our history Harrison's defeat of Cleveland made him the 23rd President (see)-an interesting coincidence. But even more interesting and incredible as a sign of things to come was Harrison's running mate, Levi Morton, himself from New York (see). For Morton was born in 1824, the first time ever the popular vote winner lost a presidential election. And sure enough it happened again with popular vote winner Grover Cleveland becoming the Andrew Jackson of the race. And astonishingly, as a sign of things to come for 2016, the winning 1888 Republican ticket had candidates from the states of New York and Indiana, but with the President and VP in alternate places.
 
President Harrison (Indiana)
Vice President Morton (New York)
 
 
President Trump (New York)
Vice President Pence (Indiana)
 
 
Those of you who have been following my writings on this amazing election know that the number 16 has been strangely auspicious for Donald Trump  (seesee and see). You know that when Trump announced his candidacy on June 16, 2015, making illegal immigration and border security key issues, that it was 16 days from Ann Coulter publishing her best-selling book on this subject; that it was 16 days from Kate Steinlie's murder by an illegal Mexican alien; you know that it was 16 months from Election Day, that Trump defeated 16 GOP candidates and a Democratic rival who was born on the 16th month of his life (and destined not to live in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue again).
 
And now adding to this remarkable, absolutely providential numerical pattern was the election of 1888-which wonderfully in many parts, as we've seen, corresponds to the election of 2016 in that the GOP candidate ran against a Democrat from New York; the GOP ticket had candidates from New York and Indiana; and they won the election while losing the popular vote. Indeed, that late 19th century election occurred 128 years before November 8th; and 128 is a multiple of 16 8x.  If this isn't the Work of Providence then
 
GOD BLESS CHANCE!
 
But I'm not done.
 
 
Gore warned during a mid-October Hillary Clinton campaign rally that Trump would send the U.S. careening toward a climate 'catastrophe'
Gore on October 11th campaigning for the first time with Hillary in Florida warning the crowd of a repeat of the 2000 election. For once a Gore prediction came true (partially) as Hillary, like Gore, won the popular vote but lost the election.
 
16 years before Hillary Clinton became the 5th candidate to win the popular vote and lose the White House Al Gore, her husband's Vice President, very definitely prefigured her political fate. For as Hillary lost the battle for the 45th presidency to Donald Trump (who the  electoral vote) Gore, the 45th Vice President, lost the electoral vote to George Bush in Florida. In other words, Gore's loss to Bush foreshadowed Clinton's loss to Trump; and oddly both Bush and Trump were born in 1946, 22 days apart (see and see); while Hillary and Gore (born late 1947 and early 1948) were born 22 weeks apart (see). But there's more.
 
THE DEATH OF JANET RENO
 
 
 
This too is mind-blowing. On November 7, 2016, 24 hours before the election, Janet Reno died at her home in Miami, Florida; this timely death gave us a late 11th hour sign on the 16th anniversary of the 2000 election (which was decided in Florida), and on the 140th anniversary of the 1876 election (in part decided in Florida), who would win the election the next day: Donald Trump like George Bush and Rutherford Hayes defeating a Democrat without the popular vote. Here's the article I wrote on November 7th surmising that Reno's death was an ominous sign for Hillary signaling defeat. It makes fascinating reading, and I believe is further proof that the manner of Hillary's defeat (winning the popular vote) was providential not accidental. Judge for yourself.
