1st in Stupidity

Mathew Blanchfield, who runs 1st in SEO, posted the letter describing Mr. Trump as “a racist, sexist, fascist” earlier this month on his company’s website. 
He said that while he remains committed to his liberal clients, he “will no longer do business with any person that is a registered Republican or supports Donald Trump.”
His clients:
 Altitude Sports Marketing
Saucedo Chavez
New Mexico Mold Removal
Accent on Vision
Fas Break Glass Repair

In case you are a Republican and want to know which liberal clients don't want your business.

Rigging the Election

The idea is to agitate in line and be so obnoxious that you get someone to react. Then the news covers it and says how violent the Trump supporters are.

The "naturally psychotic" people he's talking about are the ones attending the rally who get mad at people saying that Trump is a Nazi.

Weird, huh? Because you know that someone pulling that at a Hillary rally would be greeted with, "that's okay, everyone has their own opinion" if.

They share a list of all the Trump and Pence appearances and get people to turn out to agitate. It's really surprising that there hasn't been more conflict than there has. If you have enough people showing up, trying to engage in conflict, eventually they're going to find a few people who are having a bad day and are just one asshole away from losing it.

The people claiming responsibility for events like the Chicago Trump protest say they coordinate with the Clinton campaign and the DNC.

Also, according to Scott Foval, Iowa and Wisconsin are "racist as fuck".

             MR. BLANKFEIN:  That's the first of a ten-minute spiel, but let me introduce somebody who needs no introduction.  Secretary Hillary Clinton.
             MR. BLANKFEIN:  Now, when I say I want no introduction, I'm really only kidding because I want a real introduction and long.
             SECRETARY CLINTON:  I was waiting for it.
             MR. BLANKFEIN:  Well, I'll tell you, I'm more interested in the future.  So, anyway, why don't we just start.
             If you don't mind, can we start with a little bit of a tour of the world and say, you know, if you were -- if you were -- let's take a hypothetical.  Let's say you were Secretary of State.
             MR. BLANKFEIN:  What would you be focused on?  What would you be focused on today?  And tell a little bit about how your priorities would be and how you would deal with some of it now.
             SECRETARY CLINTON:  Well, gee, I'll just have to cast my mind back.
             SECRETARY CLINTON:  Well, first, thanks for having me here and giving me a chance to know a little bit more about the builders and the innovators who you've gathered.  Some of you might have been here last year, and my husband was, I guess, in this very same position.  And he came back and was just thrilled by --
             MR. BLANKFEIN:  He increased our budget.

          MR.

          Well, thanks again, Madam Secretary. Everyone is very interested in what you have to say, so why don't we get right to it and start talking about the political process in Washington, D.C.
          I think it's fair to say that the government shutdown and debates that surrounded it were not the finest hours in political history, but democracy is an evolving process, and nobody has a more refined perspective of that than you, having served in the executive branch as well as Congress.

            MS. CLINTON:  Let's start with the
            MR. BLANKFEIN:  China.  We're used to
the economic team in China.  We go there all the
time.  The regulations -- and then every once in a
while you hear about South China, the military
            How do you from the state department
point of view -- less familiar to us -- think about
China, the rise of China, and what that forebodes
for the next couple of decades?
            MS. CLINTON:  Well, you start off with
an easy question, but first let me thank you.
Thanks for having me here and giving me an
opportunity both to answer your questions and maybe
later on some of the questions that some of the
audience may have.
            I think it's a good news/maybe not so
good news story about what is going on right now in
China.  On the good news side I think the new
leadership -- and we'll see more of that when Xi
Jinping gets here in the United States after having
gone to Latin America.  He's a more sophisticated,
more effective public leader than Hu Jintao was.
            He is political in the kind of generic
sense of that word.  You can see him work a room,
which I have watched him do.  You can have him make
small talk with you, which he has done with me.
His experience as a young man coming to the United
States in the 1980s -- going to Iowa, spending time
there, living with a family -- was a very important
part of his own development.

I Take Responsibility

From last night's Town Hall debate:
Hillary Clinton: I've said before, but I'll repeat it, because I want everyone to hear it -- that was a mistake, and I take responsibility for using a personal e-mail account. Obviously, if I were to do it over again, I would not. I'm not making any excuses. It was a mistake. And I am very sorry about that. 
No. Admitting what everyone knows isn't "taking responsibility". If a man fathered a child and did nothing more than admit the child was his, didn't take part in raising it or help support it, would you say he took responsibility? If you came back to find your parked car with a big dent in it and a note that said, "I'm responsible, sorry!" would you be satisfied?

Clinton got away with saying she bore responsibility for Benghazi. And saying she takes responsibility running her own illegal private email server. I just wish that the next time she says, "I take responsibility" someone asks her, "How?". In what way has she or will she take responsibility?

Pence vs. Kaine

"Niether"? They must have Hillary's fact checkers for editors.
(New Jersey)





Even the way they ask the question implies an answer.
Too bad for them that it didn't work.

Poll Maker from the Legal Broadcast Network

Pence is winning, even when it looks like the heavy voting is from Clinton-likely areas.

How many votes are because Pence did better? How many out of party loyalty? How many because viewers have had enough of the blatant preferential treatment the moderators have been giving to the Democrats.

*Moderator/cheerleader/coach, whatever you want to call them.

What Did You Know and When Did You Know It?

Or believed it was non-partisan?

Who Won the First Debate?

Here are some online polls that are tracking opinions on the winner:

Drudge - at the time of this posting it shows Trump at 81.5% to Clinton's 18.5% - which also offers "neither" and "I don't know" as options. It has Trump at 53.99% and Clinton at 41.31% - Trump is currently at 58% and Clinton is at 42% - they're tied at 50% each over all, Trump at 54% to Clinton's 46% on the economy, his 53% to her 47% on national security, and 50% each on clearest vision for America. Most people who responded (80%) didn't have their minds changed by the debate.

Las Vegas Sun readers think that Trump was the winner.

CNBC - finally there's one with Clinton in the lead 52% to Trump's 48%.

Update: The CNBC has reversed (and then some). Trump is at 56% and Clinton at 44%. He's also pulled ahead in the poll and has increased his lead in the others.

First Presidential Debate 9/26/2016

Watch the debate  live on C-SPAN. They're doing a split screen so you  can watch both candidates the whole time.

HRC goes first. She says we need jobs. Wants to raise minimum wage and, finally, equal pay for women. Wealthy will pay their fair share.

DJT sounds a little subdued compared to what we're used to. He talks about Ford leaving the U.S. and losing manufacturing/jobs to other countries.

He points out Clinton has been working in government 30 years and still hasn't done anything about improving jobs here.

He describes the disadvantage we have in trade with Mexico since they have a VAT and everything we sell there is automatically taxed. We don't have that tax so they don't have to pay it here.

She accuses him of saying climate change is a hoax, he denies it.

Holt allows HRC to continue to talk even though he said they were taking a break.

Trump says he'll release his taxes as soon as she releases her emails. Someone in the audience cheered. Holt reminds them that they promised to stay silent.

Hillary needs to shut up about her father. I hope none of the debate drinking games have people doing a shot every time she says "my father". They'd be halfway to done in by now.

DJT - under budget, ahead of schedule.

The next section is on race.

HRC wants police to stop killing people unnecessarily like they're doing it for the lulz now.
We have to restore trust between communities and police. We have to make sure police are using the best techniques and training, and are well-prepared to use force only when necessary.
Holt intervenes to "correct" Trump. Trump responds that Holt is mischaracterizing the "stop and frisk" decision.

She talks about systemic racism and how young black men are more likely to be arrested and jailed for the same thing a white man could do. I hope he points out how she called them super-predators.

She wants people on the no-fly list to be prohibited from buying a gun. (Is she against due process?)

He called her on the super-predator thing. Good job.

He's not much for due process before taking gun rights either.

I think Donald just criticized me for preparing for this debate... and yes, I did.
He did?

DJT talks about Sidney Blumenthal being one of the ones that started the thing with asking about Obama's birth certificate. I doubt many listeners know who Blumenthal is.

HRC says cyberwarfare will be one of the biggest challenges. She's deeply concerned about attacks by Russia.

She's the last person I would want to take cybersecurity advice from.

She says "Donald" invited Russians to hack Americans.

He points out that we really don't know who the hackers were but agrees that we need to be concerned about computer security.

The tops of their heads are even but compare their shoulder height. Would they have zoomed in more on a man to make him look equally tall they way they've done for Clinton?

Where are the questions about her private server?

They are giving Trump a good chance to counter her claims that he supported the war in Iraq.

Trump throughout calls her "Secretary Clinton", she keeps calling him "Donald".

DJT has attacked her political decisions. She's attacked him personally. Now they're arguing about who has better temperament.

She accused him of not caring if Japan, South Korea or Saudi Arabia get nuclear weapons. Why didn't he bring up the hundreds of millions the Clinton Foundation got from Saudi Arabia? It seems like it would have been a good chance for him to work it in.

He says Hillary has experience, but it's bad experience.

Final question, or it would be but Hillary keeps talking and Holt doesn't stop her.

HRC talks about a female beauty pageant contestant that has become an American citizen and is going to vote this November. It seems glaring that she doesn't say, "is going to vote for me".

Will you support the outcome of the election, regardless of who wins.

Both say yes along with a lot of other blather.
