The tRump Conspiracy...

Rational Nation USA
Purveyor of Truth

Certainly there has never been anything quite like 2016. A year when truth is viewd as a lie and lies are viewed as truths by many. When up is down and down is up, a year when a certain major political party presidential candidate and his surrogates, all as corrupt and unethical as ever we have witnessed, are fomenting pie in the sky conspiracy theories for the sole pupose of manufacturing unrest. All to be used after the election to fabricate phoney reasons for refusing to accept ellection results and then to challenge the legitimate defeat of a narcissistic, unqualified, divisive, and dangerous candidate for the presidency of The United States of America.

Media Matters For America - ALEX JONES (HOST): What happens if they steal it in front of God and country? James and then Roger.

JAMES O’KEEFE: I think what happens is the people will revolt. People will -- people are -- I saw it over the last two weeks. I’ve never seen anything like this.

JONES: I agree.

O’KEEFE: We are witnessing a populist revolt on social media. People don’t give a crap what The New York Times says, they don’t believe them anymore. So if you have 50 to 100 million people in this country who have no one to speak for them what’s going to happen to those people? I think that’s a powerful movement of people that are going to literally revolt. It’s not going to be with pitchforks, I think it’s going to be on social -- I think it’s going to be on media, I think they’re literally going to revolt if --

JONES: And I think we’re already seeing that. Mainstream media admits everybody hates us, we’re losing subscriptions, we’re losing sponsors, they’ve gone from being absolutely not trusted to being absolutely hated. Roger, what happens next?

ROGER STONE: The important thing Alex is, we just can’t have a supposition based on circumstantial evidence that this was stolen. You need hard evidence that would be admissible in court. And that is why we at are trying to create a legal record. That’s why we’re doing these exit polls so they can then be compared. Within an hour of the polls closing we hope to have an entire analysis, and we will be able to hand Donald Trump or the Republican National Committee -- if they’re really for Donald Trump -- a package that shows that this election was heisted if it indeed is heisted. Again, don’t get distracted by voter fraud. It’s significant but that’s not the ball game.

On a brighter and considerably more sane reality... Who will win the presidency?

UPDATE - 10/28/16

Continuing to undermine the institutions of our democratic republic the Trumpster preaches to his choir of blind followers.

The Washington Post - Donald Trump’s claim that the 2016 presidential election is “rigged” against him has become a central part of his closing argument to voters in the final days of the campaign, as the GOP nominee insists that a growing range of “corrupt” public institutions are to blame for his sharply narrowing path the White House.

As he heads into a potential loss on Nov. 8, Trump has expanded the scale and scope of his accusations to include Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, the media, establishment leaders from both parties and unidentified “global financial powers.”

“When the people who control the political power in our society can rig investigations like [Clinton’s] investigation was rigged, can rig polls, you see the phony polls, and rig the media, they can wield absolute power over your life, your economy and your country and benefit big-time by it,” Trump told a crowd this week in St. Augustine, Fla. “They control what you hear and what you don’t hear, what is covered, how it’s covered, even if it’s covered at all.”

The “power structure” he describes, according to a review of his speeches this week, includes banking institutions, the judiciary, media conglomerates, voting security experts, Democratic tricksters, scientific polling and also perhaps military leaders. He has also accused Clinton of meeting “with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty to enrich these global financial powers, her special-interest friends and her donors.”

By emphasizing such rhetoric, the GOP nominee — who has a history of circulating unsubstantiated accusations — has sown distrust in basic democratic institutions among his supporters. A USA Today/Suffolk University poll released this week found that more than two-thirds of Trump supporters think the election results could be manipulated and 43 percent say corruption will be to blame if he loses.

Simply put the state of the American political system is not good nor is it totally honest. The present state of the GOP and the Trump campaign is deplorable.

UPDATE -  10/30/16  9:45 AM

Here's the latest from the guy to pay attention to, Nate Silver.

I’ve heard from people who wonder whether Friday’s news – that FBI director James Comey was investigating additional emails that may be pertinent to Hillary Clinton’s private email server — might have come too late in the campaign to be reflected in the polls, and therefore in our forecast, before Election Day. While the situation isn’t ideal, there’s probably just enough time left to measure the initial impact. In the past, major developments in the campaign have generally taken somewhere around a week to be fully reflected in our forecast, give or take a couple of days depending on the volume of polling. Because we expect there to be an awful lot of polling during the remaining 10 days of the campaign, and because our forecast is designed to react fairly aggressively to late polling shifts, we should have a pretty good read on the initial reaction to the news by the middle of next week.

But while I’m not that worried about the model having enough time to account for the reaction to the FBI news, I am worried about whether it will capture the reaction to the reaction as the story continues to develop. The thing about Friday’s news is that it left a lot of questions unanswered. Comey’s letter to Congress was cryptic, and his motivations for sending it were uncertain. There are conflicting reports about whether the emails include messages to or from Clinton, how many emails there are, whether they’re new or something the FBI has looked at already, and whether the FBI requires a court order to investigate them in more detail. Even the reporting that the investigation pertains to devices owned by ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner and his wife, Clinton aide Huma Abedin, is based on anonymous sourcing. There’s a lot we don’t know.

It seems to me as though there are four basic courses the story might take. As a framing device, I’m going to conceive of these as four strategies available to the Clinton campaign, although of course the campaign isn’t the only actor here – the Trump campaign, the FBI, the news media, down-ballot candidates and so forth also have some choices to make.

Strategy No. 1: Demand more details from Comey

Strategy No. 2: Rile up Democratic partisans by attacking Comey and other targets

Strategy No. 3: Let it go

Strategy No. 4: Drop an opposition research bomb on Trump

Our personal preference here at RN USA would be HRC opt for strategy #4. After reading the rest of the article here we welcome your thoughts as to what you think HRC's best strategy would be.

BTW, in case you missed it, Nate now has it at 81.1% HRC and 18.9% tRump. Tightening but a huge gap for tRump to close.

Women Overwhelmingly Support Clinton Over Trump...

Rational Nation USA
Purveyor of Truth

FiverThirtyEight - We could be looking at the largest gender gap in a presidential election since at least 1952: Men are favoring the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, in typical numbers, but a historically overwhelming share of women say they will vote for the Democrat, Hillary Clinton.

As my colleague Nate Silver has pointed out, women are winning this election for Clinton. Between the historic nature of Clinton’s candidacy, Trump’s record of misogynistic comments and now the Trump tape and allegations of sexual assault against Trump, American men and women are incredibly split on the 2016 election. But that split isn’t symmetrical. In an average of the most recent live-interview polls from each pollster to test the race in October, Clinton holds a 20-percentage-point advantage among women, and Trump is winning more narrowly among men.

Apparently women at large are less easily fooled by republican con man DJT, as well as being significantly more rational on the presidential choice before us.

The Truth Of DJT's Despicable Character...

Rational Nation USA
Purveyor of Truth

First Lady Michelle Obama saying it exactly right. America is better than Donald J. Trump and we cannot put this dangerous life form into any position of authority over us. PERIOD.

Read article HERE.


This probably won’t cost him the election — because Trump was already losing. It’s important to remember that Trump has been running behind Clinton for almost the whole campaign, and he had fallen into roughly a 5-percentage-point deficit after his poor performance in the first presidential debate — and before the latest round of scandals. That deficit is fairly hard to come back from even under the best of circumstances. To make it to the Oval Office now, Trump would have to make one of the greatest comebacks in political history while navigating a minefield of scandals and leaks, making his task even harder. But as far as FiveThirtyEight’s forecasts are concerned, the first debate still looks like the turning point in the race. <-------- b="" click="">


tRump is planning and putting into place his response strategy to the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct and assault. Not suprising is that\ he lays it at the feet of a Mexican billionaire and The New York Times colluding to undermine his campaign.

tRump must have spent a lot of time in The Twilight Zonbe. Which could explain his dwelling in an alternative universe.

Trump to claim Carlos Slim was behind sexual assault stories Trump to claim Carlos Slim was behind sexual assault stories
8 Hours Ago | 00:33
Donald Trump will claim Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim was part of a cabal dredging up allegations the Republican nominee touched women inappropriately, The Wall Street Journal reported.

According to the report, which cited an unnamed Trump adviser, Trump planned to claim that Slim, a New York Times shareholder and Clinton Foundation donor, was trying to boost Hillary Clinton's campaign by damaging Trumps. The adviser said Trump could launch the attack as early as Friday, the report said.

A spokesman for Slim denied that the media mogul had interfered in the U.S. election, while New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. said Slim had never sought to influence the newspaper's coverage, the WSJ reported.

A Clinton campaign press secretary called Trump's claim a "deranged right-wing conspiracy theory," the report said.

The Slim family owned around 17 percent of The New York Times Co. Class A shares as of March, although the Sulzberger family controls the company, the report noted.

UPDATE #3  10/15/16  @ 7:45 PM:

We received the following via e-mail yesterday. Sometimes humor is a very effective way to convey truth. The quote that follows surely fills that bill.

"To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. “Can I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it?”

"To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked.”

When you see smoke with increasing intensity you can rationally believe there is fire. Unless of course you are a Trumpista or Trumbot. In which case you'll either spin the story so it is HRC's or WJC's fault, the media is in HRC's hip pocket, it's all fabrications and a conspiracy to bring down a "great man" who will Make America Great "Again", so what - compared to Bill tRump is just a piker, or, some other derivative and combination of similar theme.

Following are links to stories that cause reasonably intelligent folks to at the very least question Donald J. Trump's fitness to be president of our Already Great Nation. Click on selected story to read.

Frankly, and we've hesitated saying this openly until now, tRump is a pig, a jack ass, a desicable man, and is devoid of any morals whatsoever. Therefore, in our opinion he is unfit fit to lead anything, with the possible exception of being the lead pipe to the city sewer system.

Tonight's VP Debate, Mike Pence With the Unenviable Position of Defending The Donald's Madness...

Rational Nation USA
Purveyor of Truth

Watching the VP debate tonight should be interesting. More so to see Trump's reaction to his running mate's performance than the actual debate itself.

tRump has undoubtedly moved presidential politics to new lows and all indications are he intends to take them lower.

Sadly the republican party will suffer s a whole, But they've done the damage to themselves as really have no one to blame but themselves.

Tim Kaine isn’t Mike Pence’s only opponent Tuesday night in the only debate between the vice-presidential hopefuls — Pence also has to cope with the big shadow cast by his party’s standard-bearer, Donald Trump.

That’s one reason Democratic members of The POLITICO Caucus — a panel of swing-state activists, strategists and operatives — are more optimistic about Kaine’s chances of delivering a winning performance than Republicans are about Pence’s.

Virtually all Democratic insiders surveyed last week, 97 percent, expect Kaine to get the better of Pence at Longwood University. In comparison, fewer than three-quarters of Republicans, 74 percent, think Pence will win.
“Pence will have to defend Trump and his year-plus of inflammatory comments,” said a New Hampshire Republican, who, like all insiders, completed the survey anonymously. “Kaine won't.”

“Kaine in a blowout,” an Iowa Republican predicted. “He has a personality. Pence does not. His attempts to explain Trump are among the most tortured I've ever seen. … Pence goes about it with all the passion of a dead fish skittering along the concrete at [Seattle’s Pike Place] Market.”

Other Republicans who thought Kaine would outperform Pence were critical of the Indiana governor’s style.
“Kaine may have better appeal, if only because Pence is too ‘Cracker Barrel’ for moderate, upper-middle-class suburban constituencies,” a Michigan Republican said.

“Tim Kaine is the relatable neighbor next door,” an Iowa Republican added. “Mike Pence is the guy you feel the need to impress in church.”
But the majority of Republicans have faith in Pence, who is in his first term as Indiana governor after serving six terms in the House.

“He's a really good communicator and engaging personality,” a Pennsylvania Republican said. “Tim Kaine isn't either.”

That doesn’t mean those Republicans covet Pence’s position: defending Trump, who plucked Pence out of Indianapolis less than three months ago.
“The only reasonable person in the race is Pence,” a Virginia Republican said. “However, he will have the unenviable task of defending Trump.”
