From Our Local Political Junkie We’ll Call “Cincy Dave”
BAD NEWS FOR TRUMP
The Wall Street Journal gives Trump until Labor Day to change his tune. Here’s what the mouthpiece for the Republican business class says: “If [Trump’s supporters] can’t get Mr. Trump to change his act by Labor Day, the GOP will have no choice but to write off the nominee as hopeless and focus on salvaging the Senate and House and other down-ballot races. As for Mr. Trump, he needs to stop blaming everyone else and decide if he wants to behave like someone who wants to be President—or turn the nomination over to Mike Pence.”
Although there is a good chance that the GOP will re-allocate resources to prop up down-ballot races, Trump will probably go on just being himself because that’s the basis of his appeal to his supporters, along with not being Hillary. Also, having Pence at the head of the ticket would accomplish nothing other than enraging Trump supporters, ensuring an even greater defeat.
TRUMP HITS THE JACKPOT
Here’s an interesting story about how Trump made 39 or 44 million (depending on who’s telling it) in his own casino while his investors were going bankrupt. There is nothing unusual about this though, – it’s how capitalism often works. Take time to listen to Warren Buffet’s explanation. He knows a little bit about being successful in business.
TRUMP LAYS OUT NEW ISIS STRATEGY
In a speech in Youngstown yesterday, Trump explained his new strategy for defeating ISIS. It sounded a lot like the old plan, but with a new detail regarding immigrants. His new immigration plan calls for better screening of immigrants and a test to see if they agree with basic American principles, such as believing in the constitution, and also gay rights and women’s rights. He says he doesn’t want any bigots coming here. Some people would say that if prospective immigrants failed the gay rights part, and didn’t necessarily do too well on women’s rights, couldn’t they just be Tea Party Republicans? In fact, wouldn’t Trump’s VP, Mike Pence, fail the gay rights questions pretty badly? But Trump was right about one thing – we don’t need to let any bigots immigrate here. We have enough already.
FACT CHECKING TRUMP’S ISIS SPEECH
According to many, the above speech was littered with half-truths and outright lies. Here is the WP Fact Checker’s report. Nothing new here. Remember, as Eric Blair said so well, “politics is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.”
MCMULLIN GAINS TRACTION
Never Trump Party candidate Evan McMullin has qualified to be on the Utah Ballot. He may receive some votes there because he is a Mormon. However, he has already missed the deadline to be on the ballot in most states, including the granddaddy of them all, California. California has over 10% of all EVs (55) while Utah has 6. What McMullin’s candidacy may do in Utah is take votes away from Trump, thereby giving Hillary a chance to win a state that no Democrat normally has any chance to win. If Hillary wastes any money on Utah, it will be just to poke Trump in the eye.
TODAY’S MEANINGLESS POLLS
These two are truly meaningless. Just a waste of time and money polling these two extremely solid Democrat States.
