Clinton faces decision in Trump attack strategy

 

AT The Hill by Niall Stanage

Donald Trumps shifting rhetoric on key issues such as immigration is presenting the campaign of his rival Hillary Clinton with a challenge.

The Clinton campaign could seek to portray Trump as a flip-flopper, given his apparent softening on the issue of whether he would try to deport all illegal immigrants, in particular.

But such a tactic carries risks, even though it has been successful in other recent presidential campaigns. It was used effectively by then-President George W. Bush against his Democratic challenger Sen. John Kerry (Mass.) in 2004, for example.

The biggest danger is that suggestions that Trump is prone to flip-flopping could take the focus away from the more extreme statements he has made during his campaign.

Trump’s newly minted language is clearly meant to ease voters’ resistance to him. The Clinton campaign doesn’t want to inadvertently play into his hands, by mounting a “flip-flop” attack that could leave voters thinking he is not as much of a zealot as he is sometimes portrayed.

[Shaw could Trump be bringing his main, original issue up to double down on immigration
again?]

Donald Trump 'Softening' on immigration.

By Jack Shaw,

When the 2016 Presidentila campaign startes, Donlad Trump's  issue was immigration.
Trump promised to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico and also to deport the 11 million illegal immigrants that were in America.

Trump's second issue was that he was an outsider, no one owned him. He hated the GOP establishment for promising voters  promising voters they would follow the direction  the people wanted Amreica to go. And then once in office the GOP did none of the things they promised voters, The GOP instead moved America to the direction the Donor class wanted.
Trump promised to make America great again by do the will of the people.

This week thet has been much speculation the Mr. Trump as 'Softening' his stance on deporting all
illegals.

Trump has made subtle changes to his immigration stance. He has sounded more resonable
to the views of the GOP establishment, the media, Hispanics and independent Types.
These groups want Trump to change which will cause mant Trump voters to be dissapointed,
see the same old bait and switch by Promise one thing-do another. That would seriously damaged the Trump Train.People would stop supporting Trump.

I don't think Donald Trump has changed a thing.He has sounded nicer on immigration, hinted some could stay but that's it. Trump has not spoken on how many would be deported, he just pointed out examples of some illegals who have adopeted the American way of life and consider themselves Americans.

Donald Trump will still build a wall. He is still is an outsider. He still dislikes the GOP, he hates the media. And he will still deport illegal aliens. He will do what he has promised the people.

The only question is how many illegals will he deport? I expect Trump to be reasonable. To allow 30% solid citizens, who have been here for 20 years to stay and to deport atleast 5 Million most of whom entered the country in the past two years. The law is the law and we have 93 million unemployed Americas to help.

Remember President Eisenhower deported 3 Million. It can be done and will be.






Rep. Steve King on Trump’s 'Softened' Immigration stance


Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, a staunch proponent of strict immigration laws, spoke to Yahoo News Guest Anchor Stephanie Sy about Donald Trump’s position on immigration, which has come into question in recent days.

On the question of whether Trump has softened his stance on deporting all 11 million undocumented immigrants, which is something Trump hinted at earlier in the week before pushing back in a new interview Thursday, King told Sy, “It’s an open question at this point, and the question has been getting opened up a little bit more in the last two or three days. I don’t see how this language turns it into a hardening, but it doesn’t necessarily mean he’s softening his position, either.”

King said if Trump is wavering on his mass deportation policy, that would be against the rule of law. He said, “I would say the question to ask Donald Trump is: 
Will you or will you not support a legalization of people who are in this country unlawfully today, and if you support legalization for people that are unlawfully in America, then you’ve rewarded law-breaking, and you cannot support the respect for the rule of law if you reward law-breaking.”

Kasich admits skipping convo was to hurt Trump, now GOP may kick him out forever

At Spinzon 
Poor John Kasich. Not only was he a punch line during the campaign, as he failed to win anything meaningful or relevant aside from Ohio, but he is now being removed from the GOP. This comes after Kasich admits that he skipped the convention to hurt Trump.
For the first time Friday, John Kasich depicted his boycott of the Republican National Convention last month in Cleveland as a direct slap at Donald Trump.
“All throughout this (campaign), anybody can say, OK, you know, Trump said this, you say that, why don’t you slug him over the head?” the Ohio governor told CNN in an interview at the Governor’s Residence in Bexley.
“Look, my actions have spoken louder than any words.”
When asked if meant not endorsing Trump, Kasich replied, “And think about this: I want to know when anybody had a convention in their state, when they were the governor, who didn’t go in the convention hall?”

Clinton, Trump Sharpen Attacks

 

At The Hill by Ben Kamisar

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have sharpened their rhetoric on race as an already negative presidential race threatens to reach previously unseen levels.

Clinton did everything but directly accuse Trump of being a racist in a major speech Thursday that was heavily touted by her campaign, ripping the GOP nominee for retweeting white supremacist Twitter accounts and embracing voices on the outskirts of politics that represent the country's worst traditions.

Trump has responded by calling Clinton a bigot and a bully, arguing that she is playing to the lowest denominator by accusing he and his supporters of racism.
This week's skirmishes portend an even more negative fall, as both campaigns have made it clear that they believe their best path to victory is by ripping down their opponent's reputation.

“Nobody should be surprised that we are in for the nastiest election we’ve ever seen,” said Christian Ferry, Lindsey Graham’s former presidential campaign manager.
“The Trump campaign welcomes the opportunity to engage in the name-calling and fierce attacks, and now the Clinton campaign is stooping to the same level.”

Clinton and Trump both are no strangers to the rough-and-tumble.
Democrats have embarked on a summer-long mission to hammer Trump for controversial comments about the parents of a Muslim-American fallen soldier and a Hispanic-American judge.
And Republicans have seized on the constant drip of Clinton’s private emails and revelations about her family foundation to cast her as corrupt.
But Clinton went much further on Thursday.

GOP changes in store after Election Day — win or lose, Trump or no Trump

At USA Today by Rick Hampson,
When a political party loses a presidential election, it usually has to change — the bigger the loss, the bigger the change. But Republicans could face greater upheaval if Donald Trump wins in November than if he loses.

A Trump victory would redefine the party, transform its credo and presage one of the biggest realignments in U.S. political history.

But a loss — even (or maybe especially) a big one — would simply send the GOP back to the drawing board, as defeat did the Republicans and Democrats in 1964 and 1972, respectively. Four years later, each claimed the White House. Parties are more willing to compromise and experiment “when they get tired of losing,’’ says Whit Ayres, a GOP pollster.

We already know what the Clinton Foundation sold its ‘donors’

At NYPOST by Jonah Goldberg,

Do you know the old wheelbarrow joke?

It’s truly funny only to grandpas and the grandkids they tell it to, so I won’t bother with the elaborate
Set up
.
For years a factory worker pushes a wheelbarrow full of straw past a security guard on his way out. Suspicious that the guy is stealing something, the guard looks in the straw but can’t find anything. Finally, when the worker is retiring, the guard asks, “I know you’ve been stealing something — can you tell me what it is? The guy smiles and says, “Wheelbarrows.”

That joke keeps popping into my head whenever I hear Hillary Clinton’s defenders say there’s no evidence of a quid pro quo in the fresh batch of e-mails released this week.

How Trump is changing America’s political map

At NYPost by Micheal Barone,

Is the political map so familiar that even non-pundits offhandedly refer to red, blue and purple states changing before our eyes? Yes, at least to a limited extent — and it’s probably about time.

The political map has been pretty static for almost two decades, the longest since the 1880s.
In the last four presidential elections, 40 states and the District of Columbia, with 422 electoral votes, have voted for nominees of the same party each time. In only a few cases were the margins very close, as was the case with the five states with 41 electoral votes that voted for a second party just once (North Carolina, Indiana, Iowa, New Mexico, New Hampshire).

That leaves only five states, with 75 electoral votes, supporting the winning candidates, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, in all of the last four elections. You will recognize them as the purplest of purple states: Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Colorado, Nevada.

Clinton's Censorship Tactics Aren't Working Against Trump

At Townhall by Liz Crokin,
When I went to my first Trump rally in California earlier this year I noticed two male protestors holding up signs with a picture of Donald Trump next to a Nazi flag that read: “Stop Nazi Trump.” What I found so shocking about this was not the sign itself but the irony of this picture. As they held up these signs, hordes of protesters around them spit, swore and physically pushed Trump supporters -- including women and children – as they walked in and out of the event.

The irony is that these protestors that are so quick to cast Trump as Adolf Hitler are using the same violent tactics that Hitler’s Brownshirts, aka the SA, executed against Nazi opponents in the years leading up to the German dictator’s rise to power in 1933. The radical groups that support Hillary Clinton are using these same methods of fear, violence, ridicule and intimidation. Her supporters are blindly endorsing the one candidate that is manipulating them to use the same criminal tactics Hitler’s followers applied; yet, they are too ill informed to realize this. They’ve been brainwashed to believe that Trump is the bad guy.

Sorry, Hillary: Trump’s policies are clearly better for blacks

At NYPOST by John Lott,
Hillary Clinton claims that some of Donald Trump’s appeal is “xenophobic, racist, misogynistic.” On Thursday she asked, “If he doesn’t respect all Americans, how can he serve all Americans?”
But who actually cares more about blacks, in particular poor blacks?

On everything from education to jobs to crime, Trump’s policies offer a lifeline to people who have been losing ground for decades. Hillary’s policies will just exacerbate them. And no amount of speeches will change that.

On education, Trump strongly supports school choice. This would give inner-city blacks a way out of horribly performing public schools. Clinton attacks charters and clearly opposes other forms of school choice, opting to protect teachers unions at the expense of students.
And who’s harmed the most by illegal immigration? Who’s most likely to suffer unemployment or wage reductions due to the added competition? Young, unskilled blacks and Hispanics. The biggest beneficiaries? Wealthy people who get to pay less for lawn care and housecleaning.

Hillary Clinton Says ‘Radical Fringe’ Is Taking Over G.O.P. Under Donald Trump

At NYTIMEs by

Hillary Clinton delivered a blistering denunciation Thursday of Donald J. Trump’s personal and political history with race, arguing in her most forceful terms yet that a nationalist conservative fringe had engulfed the Republican Party.

In a 31-minute address, building to a controlled simmer, Mrs. Clinton did everything but call Mr. Trump a racist outright — saying he had promoted “racist lie” after “racist lie,” pushed conspiracy theories with “racist undertones” and heartened racists across the country by submitting to an “emerging racist ideology known as the alt-right.”

“He is taking hate groups mainstream,” Mrs. Clinton told supporters at a community college here, “and helping a radical fringe take over the Republican Party.”

Extremist Islam in Canada

 
FrontPageMag by Lloyd Billingsley,
Leading Canadian politicians have been proclaiming that, despite what former prime minister Stephen Harper contended, Islamic extremism is rare or nonexistent in Canada’s mosques, and that to believe otherwise is racist or Islamophobic. On the other hand, an investigation by two experts finds that in some Canadian mosques and school libraries, extremist Islamic literature is the only brand available.

That is the contention of “The Lovers of Death”? Islamist Extremism in Our Mosques, Schools and Libraries, a recent study by Thomas Quiggin, formerly an intelligence analyst with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the Privy Council Office. Quiggin is also a court-qualified expert on the structure of jihadist terrorism. Co-author Saied Shoaaib, a journalist originally from Egypt, has written extensively on Islamic extremism in the Middle East and in Canada.
“It is not the presence of extremist literature in the mosque libraries that is worrisome,” the new report contends. “The problem is that there was nothing but extremist literature in the mosque libraries.”

30,000+ illegals from countries of “terrorist concern” crossed SW border into U.S. in 2015

Source: Military Intel Confirms JW Reporting: Muslim Terrorists Entering U.S. Via Mexico – Judicial Watch

Corroborating what Judicial Watch uncovered years ago, a U.S. military intelligence report discloses that Muslim terrorists are being smuggled into the country through Mexico. The government calls them Special Interest Aliens (SIA) and Latin American smuggling networks are helping them cross the border, according to information obtained from a U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) Intelligence dispatch.

Located in Miami, Florida SOUTHCOM is one of nine unified combat commands in the Department of Defense (DOD). It’s responsible for providing contingency planning operations and security cooperation in Central and South America as well as the Caribbean. The internal assessment on SIA smuggling has not been made public, but a conservative Washington D.C. online newspaper obtained key points from the command’s J-2 intelligence directorate. A SOUTHCOM Army colonel told the paper that in 2015 more than 30,000 migrants who entered the U.S. through the southwestern border were from countries of “terrorist concern.”

Privilege: G Soros E Mails Reveal Massive Subversion And Corruption: US MSM Averts Eyes.

H/T Pic and caption Investor’s Business Daily

Fresh from its public-spirited promotion of articles from The Gatestone Institute site (ZEROHEDGE/GATESTONE On Sweden’s Summer “Refugee” Sexual Assault Disaster August 21 2016) the superlative financial webzine ZeroHedge has found time from its normal interests to do it again: On The Bizarre Media Blackout Of Hacked George Soros Documents by Taylor Durden Aug 24, 2016

Scandal: Leaked documents released a few days ago provide juicy insider details of how a fabulously rich businessman has been using his money to influence elections in Europe, underwrite an extremist group, target U.S. citizens who disagreed with him, dictate foreign policy, and try to sway a Supreme Court ruling, among other things. Pretty compelling stuff, right?

Not if it involves leftist billionaire George Soros. In this case, the mainstream press couldn’t care less.

On Saturday, a group called DC Leaks posted more than 2,500 documents going back to 2008 that it pilfered from Soros’ Open Society Foundations’ servers. Since then, the mainstream media have shown zero interest in this gold mine of information.
