“I don’t need to take brain function tests, says Clinton –

Democratic candidate says she has ‘met the standard’ of others running for president
Says there is ‘no need’ to take neurological test, after stumbling at Sept. 11th event …”
“Hillary’s eyeball timebomb: Doctor claims out-of-sync eyes are caused by limited blood flow to the brain after 2012 fall which could also cause her to collapse …
A retired Texas surgeon has written an article postulating that Hillary Clinton’s erratic eye movements during a Philadelphia speech are an indication she could be suffering from pressure on a nerve inside her skull – and that the condition is linked to a fall she suffered in 2012.
The ultimate effect of the fall, he writes, may have been constricted blood flow to the brain – which could explain both apparent erratic eye movements observed this week, and her collapse at New York’s 9/11 memorial earlier this month.
‘If, as is statistically likely, Clinton’s transverse sinus is still blocked, she would still have increased pressure and swelling and decreased blood flow to her brain …”

The Republican Party is a joke, it’s a fiction. There is no such thing as integrity, honor, duty or honesty under its umbrella. Everyone saying Hillary is the most dishonest candidate they’ve ever seen have their head so far in the sand they might be able to see the Earth’s core.

Trump will lose but the GOP will probably never recover.

Refugees are OK as long as they don’t move in near rich democrat campaign contributors.

“Stone Mountain, Georgia — a city with just over 6,000 residents and a poverty rate well above the national average — has resettled more Syrian refugees than Los Angeles and New York City combined.”

“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has been a vocal backer of President Obama’s (ultimately successful) plan to import a minimum of 10,000 Syrian refugees by the end of the fiscal year, at one point accusing Republicans of “slamming the door on mothers and children.” But with just days remaining in the 2016 Fiscal Year, Pelosi’s own district has yet to resettle a single Syrian refugee.”

“… McDonald’s, has quietly outsourced the jobs of 70 white-collar professionals in Ohio to foreign H-1B workers.

The H-1B outsourcing in the nation’s heartland showcases the growing corporate use of foreign H-1B workers to replace American white-collar professionals, and it comes after companies have used waves of legal and illegal migrants to slash blue-collar jobs and wages in Ohio and around the country.

Also, the 70 Ohio jobs that McDonalds outsourced to lower wage foreign graduates are not Silicon Valley technology and software jobs — they’re white-collar accounting jobs performed by graduates from mainstream business schools.”

“Former CIA Director James Woolsey said … that political correctness ruins the ability of law enforcement to stop radical Islamic terror.

Woolsey was referring to the terror attacks in Seaside Park, New Jersey and New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood, to which 28-year-old Ahmad Khan is linked. The blast in Chelsea injured 29 people.

Police took him into custody after a shootout Monday. He’s now being immediately charged with attempted murder of law enforcement officers, while the investigation continues.

For Woolsey, the Obama administration’s stringent refusal to label the attacks as radical Islam is a huge mistake.”

obama and hillary caught in another LIE.

“President Barack Obama used a pseudonym in email communications with Hillary Clinton and others, according to FBI records made public Friday.

The disclosure came as the FBI released its second batch of documents from its investigation into Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.”

“President Obama only learned of Hillary Clinton’s private email address use for official State Department business after a New York Times report, he told CBS News in an interview.

CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Mr. Obama when he learned about her private email system after his Saturday appearance in Selma, Alabama.

“The same time everybody else learned it through news reports,” the president told Plante.”

Trump is headed for a win, says professor who has predicted 30 years of presidential outcomes correctly

Nobody knows for certain who will win on Nov. 8 — but one man is pretty sure: Professor Allan Lichtman, who has correctly predicted every presidential election since 1984.

When we sat down in May, he explained how he comes to a decision. Lichtman’s prediction isn’t based on horse-race polls, shifting demographics or his own political opinions. Rather, he uses a system of true/false statements he calls the “Keys to the White House” to determine his predicted winner.

And this year, he says, Donald Trump is the favorite to win.

The keys, which are explained in depth in Lichtman’s book “Predicting the Next President: The Keys to the White House 2016” are:

Party Mandate: After the midterm elections, the incumbent party holds more seats in the U.S. House of Representatives than after the previous midterm elections.
Contest: There is no serious contest for the incumbent party nomination.
Incumbency: The incumbent party candidate is the sitting president.
Third party: There is no significant third party or independent campaign.
Short-term economy: The economy is not in recession during the election campaign.
Long-term economy: Real per capita economic growth during the term equals or exceeds mean growth during the previous two terms.
Policy change: The incumbent administration effects major changes in national policy.
Social unrest: There is no sustained social unrest during the term.
Scandal: The incumbent administration is untainted by major scandal.
Foreign/military failure: The incumbent administration suffers no major failure in foreign or military affairs.
Foreign/military success: The incumbent administration achieves a major success in foreign or military affairs.
Incumbent charisma: The incumbent party candidate is charismatic or a national hero.
Challenger charisma: The challenging party candidate is not charismatic or a national hero.
Lichtman, a distinguished professor of history at American University, sat down with The Fix this week to reveal who he thinks will win in November and why 2016 was the most difficult election to predict yet. Our conversation has been lightly edited for length and clarity.

THE FIX: Can you tell me about the keys, and how you use them to evaluate the election from the point where — I assume it’s very murky a year or two out, and they start to crystallize over the course of the election.

LICHTMAN: “The Keys to the White House” is a historically based prediction system. I derived the system by looking at every American presidential election from 1860 to 1980, and have since used the system to correctly predict the outcomes of all eight American presidential elections from 1984 to 2012.

The keys are 13 true/false questions, where an answer of “true” always favors the reelection of the party holding the White House, in this case the Democrats. And the keys are phrased to reflect the basic theory that elections are primarily judgments on the performance of the party holding the White House. And if six or more of the 13 keys are false — that is, they go against the party in power — they lose. If fewer than six are false, the party in power gets four more years.

So people who hear just the surface-level argument there might say, well, President Obama has a 58 percent approval rating, doesn’t that mean the Democrats are a shoo-in? Why is that wrong?

It absolutely does not mean the Democrats are a shoo-in. First of all, one of my keys is whether or not the sitting president is running for reelection, and right away, they are down that key. Another one of my keys is whether or not the candidate of the White House party is, like Obama was in 2008, charismatic. Hillary Clinton doesn’t fit the bill.

The keys have nothing to do with presidential approval polls or horse-race polls, with one exception, and that is to assess the possibility of a significant third-party campaign.

What about Donald Trump on the other side? He’s not affiliated with the sitting party, but has his campaign been an enigma in terms of your ability to assess this election?

Donald Trump has made this the most difficult election to assess since 1984. We have never before seen a candidate like Donald Trump, and Donald Trump may well break patterns of history that have held since 1860.

We’ve never before seen a candidate who’s spent his life enriching himself at the expense of others. He’s the first candidate in our history to be a serial fabricator, making up things as he goes along. Even when he tells the truth, such as, “Barack Obama really was born in the U.S.,” he adds two lines, that Hillary Clinton started the birther movement, and that he finished it, even though when Barack Obama put out his birth certificate, he didn’t believe it. We’ve never had a candidate before who not just once, but twice in a thinly disguised way, has incited violence against an opponent. We’ve never had a candidate before who’s invited a hostile foreign power to meddle in American elections. We’ve never had a candidate before who’s threatened to start a war by blowing ships out of the water in the Persian Gulf if they come too close to us. We’ve never had a candidate before who has embraced as a role model a murderous, hostile foreign dictator. Given all of these exceptions that Donald Trump represents, he may well shatter patterns of history that have held for more than 150 years, lose this election even if the historical circumstances favor it.

We’re a little bit less than seven weeks out from the election today. Who do you predict will win in November?

Based on the 13 keys, it would predict a Donald Trump victory. Remember, six keys and you’re out, and right now the Democrats are out — for sure — five keys.

Key 1 is the party mandate — how well they did in the midterms. They got crushed.

Key number 3 is, the sitting president is not running.

Key number 7, no major policy change in Obama’s second term like the Affordable Care Act.

Key number 11, no major smashing foreign policy success.

And Key number 12, Hillary Clinton is not a Franklin Roosevelt.

One more key and the Democrats are down, and we have the Gary Johnson Key. One of my keys would be that the party in power gets a “false” if a third-party candidate is anticipated to get 5 percent of the vote or more. In his highest polling, Gary Johnson is at about 12 to 14 percent. My rule is that you cut it in half. That would mean that he gets six to seven, and that would be the sixth and final key against the Democrats.

So very, very narrowly, the keys point to a Trump victory. But I would say, more to the point, they point to a generic Republican victory, because I believe that given the unprecedented nature of the Trump candidacy and Trump himself, he could defy all odds and lose even though the verdict of history is in his favor. So this would also suggest, you know, the possibility this election could go either way. Nobody should be complacent, no matter who you’re for, you gotta get out and vote.

5-Minute Fix newsletter
Keeping up with politics is easy now.
Do you think the fact that Trump is not a traditional Republican — certainly not an establishment Republican, from a rhetorical or policy perspective — contributes to that uncertainty over where he fits in with the standard methodology for evaluating the Keys?

I think the fact that he’s a bit of a maverick, and nobody knows where he stands on policy, because he’s constantly shifting. I defy anyone to say what his immigration policy is, what his policy is on banning Muslims, or whoever, from entering the United States, that’s certainly a factor. But it’s more his history in Trump University, the Trump Institute, his bankruptcies, the charitable foundation, of enriching himself at the expense of others, and all of the lies and dangerous things he’s said in this campaign, that could make him a precedent-shattering candidate.

It’s interesting, I don’t use the polls, as I’ve just explained, but the polls have very recently tightened. Clinton is less ahead than she was before, but it’s not because Trump is rising, it’s because Clinton is falling. He’s still around 39 percent in the polls. You can’t win if you can’t crack 40 percent.

As people realize the choice is not Gary Johnson, the only choice is between Trump and Clinton, those Gary Johnson supporters may move away from Johnson and toward Clinton, particularly those millennials. And, you know, I’ve seen this movie before. My first vote was in 1968, when I was the equivalent of a millennial, and lots of my friends, very liberal, wouldn’t vote for Hubert Humphrey because he was part of the Democratic establishment, and guess what? They elected Richard Nixon.

And, of course, as I have said for over 30 years, predictions are not endorsements. My prediction is based off a scientific system. It does not necessarily represent, in any way, shape or form, an Allan Lichtman or American University endorsement of any candidate. And of course, as a successful forecaster, I’ve predicted in almost equal measure both Republican and Democratic victories.

18 Coggins Square September 23, 2016 at 8:27 PM I cannot say how sick and tired I am of how many (but not all) in the Republican Party seem to have that the Democratic Party does not understand the lessons of 9/11. To anybody who thinks that way, I encourage you to watch these 3 videos of 3 people adversely affected by 9/11 who are backing Hillary Clinton in this election. One is New York Police Detective Joe Sweeney, the second one is from Lauren Manning, a woman who was working at The World Trade Center that morning who suffered severe injuries in the attack, and the third and final one US Representative Joe Sweeney, who lost 2 cousins of his who were firefighters who lost their lives. Each of these 3 speeches was shown on CNN and MSNBC, but they were not shown on Fox News. Fox News was just gabbing away in their press box, and I am guessing Fox did it to continue to deceive their conservative viewer base into believing that Democrats are weak on security. It is beyond shameful that Fox News did this. Fox viewers deserved to hear these people’s side of the story!! I encourage everyone to find time to watch these 3 inspirational speeches, and not believe they Republican hype of Democratic weakness.

“The U.S. State Department under the leadership of Secretary Hillary Clinton continued a program to embolden foreign, revolutionary, social media activists to agitate for regime change in various parts of the world. The program arguably had major, detrimental consequences for the trajectory of the Middle East.

Recent leaks show a memo that top Clinton aide Huma Abedin sent to her boss stating, “I’m giving you credit for inspiring the ‘peaceful’ protests,” with regard to Egypt, with quotation marks around the word “peaceful.”

The United States government is believed to have utilized a program called the Alliance of Youth Movements Summit, co-founded by a close Hillary Clinton adviser, to provide networking opportunities for an activist plotting to overthrow Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak several years before the “Arab Spring” protests that led to widespread regime change in the Middle East.

Through the Alliance of Youth Movements Summit, the U.S. learned that the Muslim Brotherhood was supportive of a plan to overthrow Mubarak. The U.S.-supported Muslim Brotherhood later briefly ruled Egypt after Mubarak’s ouster.”

Then there was the problem of how to arm terrorists.

Professor Allen Lichtman of American University has correctly predicted the outcome of every presidential election since 1984.

Lichtman looks beyond polls and the daily news cycles. And he puts aside his personal views and ignores shifting demographics.

Instead, Professor Lichtman bases his prediction on a series of “true or false” questions which have always helped him pick the correct President. And based on these questions, Lichtman is certain: Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump will win the 2016 election!

The questions he asks perfectly explain just why Trump is able to win so many votes from Americans who typically don’t get involved in Presidential elections. Trump is expanding the Republican tent in ways that no other candidate could come close to doing. And, Obama’s 8 years of failures mean “doom” For Hillary Clinton:

Occur primarily outside the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S., or transcend national boundaries in terms of the means by which they are accomplished, the persons they appear intended to intimidate or coerce, or the locale in which their perpetrators operate or seek asylum.*
“Domestic terrorism” means activities with the following three characteristics:

Involve acts dangerous to human life that violate federal or state law;
Appear intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination. or kidnapping; and
Occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S.
18 U.S.C. § 2332b defines the term “federal crime of terrorism” as an offense that:

Is calculated to influence or affect the conduct of government by intimidation or coercion, or to retaliate against government conduct; and
Is a violation of one of several listed statutes, including § 930(c) (relating to killing or attempted killing during an attack on a federal facility with a dangerous weapon); and § 1114 (relating to killing or attempted killing of officers and employees of the U.S.).
* FISA defines “international terrorism” in a nearly identical way, replacing “primarily” outside the U.S. with “totally” outside the U.S. 50 U.S.C. § 1801(c).Source:

“Hillary Clinton started talks to give $400 million, in cash, to Iran.”

“NAFTA was signed by Bill Clinton.”

“You know who started the birther movement? Hillary Clinton.”

“I think it’s very sad when Obama lands in Saudi Arabia, and he lands in Cuba, and there aren’t high officials to even greet him. This is the first time in the history of Air Force One.”

You clearly don’t understand why the stock market is at an all time high.

It is high because money is cheap to borrow…. why is it so cheap?

Money is cheap because the Federal Reserve has been attempting for the last eight years to promote economic growth. Yet this is the worse recovery and annual gross domestic product since WWII…. Hedge funds and other investment institutions can borrow at a low rate and invest it in the market thereby increasing speculation and driving up stock prices which is reflected in the DJIA, NASDAQ, and S&P500.

Why is such a poor economic recovery? …. Obama’s crummy economic and social policies. Low paying jobs, a low labor participation rate, swelled food stamp recipients, and high poverty… especially for blacks and Latinos.

Those are the facts.

He blatantly treats his supporters like they’re ignorant and stupid: This whole “Lyin’ Ted,” “Crooked Hillary,” “Crazy Bernie,” “Little Marco” — it’s all coding people to equate a word or phrase with a particular person. He’s “coding” people sort of the way someone might treat a new puppy they’re trying to train. But the reason why he can lie so blatantly and often is because he knows the people who support him won’t use something like Google to find out that nearly everything he’s telling them is complete bullsh*t. A person simply can’t lie how he does, and the way he does, unless they’re well aware of the fact that they know those supporting them are dumb enough to believe the drivel they’re trying to sell. Then there’s also the reality that he’s admitted that he knows his supporters are mindless sheep – twice!

Trump supporters actually believe he’s going to build a wall: Building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico border has been the centerpiece of his entire campaign. He’s admitted that it’s his “go-to” talking point when he feels one of his crowds might be getting bored. There’s just one problem: This wall will never be built. Not only would Congress never approve the funding for this ridiculous thing, but the logistics of it don’t make any sense. There would have to be federal and state laws repealed and/or changed, to say nothing about that whole “eminent domain” thing that often doesn’t go over well, before they could even think about beginning construction. And if you don’t think immigrants and drug smugglers would find ways to bypass the wall, you’re naive. To say nothing about the billions it would cost to upkeep and maintain the stupid thing. And, no, Mexico is not going to pay for it. Anyone who actually believes that Trump could get Mexico to pay for it is an absolute imbecile. Even if it was built, all we would ultimately end up with is a worthless collection of concrete and rebar that costs American taxpayers billions of dollars. It wouldn’t stop illegal immigration or drug smuggling and would serve no actual purpose other than to appease fools who were gullible enough to have thought it

51 2 WHITE MEN Doused With Gasoline And SET ON FIRE By BLM Near Baltimore. MEDIA COVERS-UP STORY September 25, 2016 at 8:43 AM

Two white males were doused with gasoline and set on fire by a black male co-worker in Baltimore County. Both victims were severely injured. The media is censoring the story.

There is no descriptions or pictures of anyone involved. This is probably because it was a black on white crime.

Imagine if a white man set two black co-workers on fire. Do you think it would be a national news story? Do you think the OUTRAGE WOULD BE ….

56 Bad news for Hillary September 25, 2016 at 10:32 AM


Florida is a must-win state for Donald Trump if he has any chance of defeating Hillary Clinton on Election Day.

Barack Obama took Florida twice in 2008 and 2012, burying Republican chances. And the state’s importance has grown, with 3 more electoral votes added since the 2010 census to 29, more than 10% of the total needed for victory. There simply is no swing state more pivotal.

Well early voting results are in for the Sunshine State — and the GOP nominee is off to a huge– in fact, historic — start.

Trump leads Clinton by 120,000 votes — the first Republican candidate to EVER lead in early voting in Florida.

Such a result “bodes very well” for the billionaire first-time candidate, according to Fox News analyst Michael Barone.

The News Alert blog reports (via GP):

Here are the numbers, via the Florida Division of Elections:

2016 General Election

Election Number – 10282 Election Date – 11/08/2016

Republican 881,274 – Democrat 760,003

This is extremely good news for the Trump campaign.

It should also set off alarm bells at Hillary’s campaign headquarters.

Despite Clinton outspending Trump 5-to-1 in the state, and having a a staggering 57 state offices there according to the NY Times, Hillary is in big trouble in Florida:

Despite these advantages, Mrs. Clinton is struggling in the Sunshine State, unable to assemble the coalition that gave Barack Obama two victories here, and offering Mr. Trump a broad opening in a road to the White House that not long ago seemed closed to him. Mr. Trump is pressing down hard to win the state, campaigning in Miami on Friday and in Fort Myers on Monday, after a rally in Pensacola recently.

Recent polls show Mrs. Clinton is not earning the same support among Hispanics, young people or white voters that Mr. Obama captured when he eked out a Florida victory four years ago in the country’s most hard-fought swing state.

Well duh, insult Hispanics by calling outreach to them “taco bowls,” enrage young Bernie supporters by rigging the primary, and angering Whites by denouncing police as racist and calling for open borders, and you get what you deserve.

Things are certainly looking up for Trump.

57 @TIFOKCIS September 25, 2016 at 10:46 AM

Obviously you and I both know the CNN article you posted is a FAKE! We all know that the media completely covered up this story, therefore CNN did NOT report on it. We all know that the media completely hid the race of the purpetrator, so real CNN would never include the mug shot showing a black man. This article has the mug shot, so that PROVES it is a fake because we all know the media completely hid his race. And of course we all know this was an attack on white people by Black Lives Matter activists, not a result of an ongoing dispute between co-workers who ran out of gas and decided to settle their dispute with their fists like all those other FAKE news stories reported. OBVIOUSLY this was a planned attack by BLM activists who got jobs with white people and deliberately ran out of gas while traveling with white co-workers so they would have to go to a gas station and get gasoline so they could follow through with their planned attack by challenging their white co-workers to a fight then dosing them with gasoline to protest how police target blacks. OBVIOUSLY that’s the true story being covered up by the liberal media (not that they are reporting on the story AT ALL because the stories out there are obviously FAKE). And there are a lot of fake news stories out there by websites pretending to be CNN and CBS and the Baltimore newspaper. But we know they are all FAKE because the liberal, Commie, BLM-loving press completely covered up this story.

58 Everybody Hates Hillary September 25, 2016 at 10:51 AM

Hillary has some very bad Karma coming back to her for what she did to Bernie. The DNC is probably regretting that they pushed out Bernie for this pathological lying, rude, arrogant, sell out. It’s pretty sad that she is losing to a D-head like Donald Trump.

Bernie would have beat Trump badly.

I don’t know one person that likes her.

61 Anon September 25, 2016 at 3:10 PM

Trump speaks ill of women, Muslims, Latinos, African-Americans, immigrants and Gold Star families while mocking Asians, the disabled and many, many more. Basically, if you don’t fit the mold of what Trump deems suitable for society, he’ll put you down or count you out.

63 The most watched debate in history September 25, 2016 at 4:25 PM

The only reason I’m going to watch inform is to watch Hillary have a seizure or a stroke on live TV. She will not be able to stand and take the assault from Trump for 90 minutes without a break. If she starts having a coughing fit or has a seizure that can’t go to commercial break.

Aspirin and her ridiculous comments.

Please move now just in case and take your pathetic racist nonsense with you.

65 Vote Hillary September 25, 2016 at 5:37 PM

Vote for Hillary if:
* your health insurance premiums went down.
* If you’re doing better than you did 8 years ago.
* If you’re living safer now than before. * * If you think there’s more racial Harmony in the country than before.
* If you think the country is more financially secure than before.
* If you think the country is safer than before.
* If you think the world is safet than before.
* If you think Clinton and the Obama Administration have been honest with the American people.
Gee, I guess you won’t be voting for her after all!
Trump is going to win!

66 snowflake for hillary September 25, 2016 at 5:41 PM

Simply how fragile hillary supporters think.

“… Sarah was driving down the street, headed to pick up her child from school, when she saw some yard signs that upset her just a little bit. She has to see them every day when she drives by.

One said “Trump/Pence” and the other said “Hillary for Prison.”

Sarah didn’t like that, so she stopped in front of the guy’s house – with the man standing in his front yard – gives him the finger, and calls him something like a “fu**ing racist.”

The man – clearly nervous about the offensive and rather threatening behavior – got in his car and started to follow Sarah.

Sarah apparently got a little freaked out and managed to wave down a cop.”

Read the rest, you will not believe how she explains what she did and justifies it to the cop.

But the 90 million people who are really suffering will not vote for her.
It is nice to see that someone who appears to be a normal guy has done better in the last few years ,along with of course the clintons , who cleaned up.. and the liberal billionaires have really cleaned up as well. You guys still can feel good about yourself but you’re forgetting about the rest of us. I’m going to vote for Trump!

Egyptologists have recently deciphered additional writings of the ancient people of Egypt.
These writings describe an affliction similar to leprosy. The main difference is the brain is affected rather than the body. It rots away.
This condition was known as “the furian”. In rare instances descendants of those ancient people have been diagnosed with “the furian”.
Unfortunately, due to indiscriminate cross-breeding there are occasional infections still found today.

Barack Obama has racked up more debt than all president before him combined with nothing at all to show for it.

Barack Obama has decimated our military and fired many of the top brass that refused to go along with his game.

Barack Obama has divided this country and accelerated racial tensions like never before.

Barack Obama has broken the trust of our greatest allies, our allies no longer trust us and our enemies no longer fear us.

Barack Obama is an embarrassment and a disgrace to America.

If you want more of the same, you go ahead and vote for Hillary Clinton.

The pharmaceutical cocktail Hillary chooses an hour before the debate tonight may determine who the next president is. My assumption is she is taking all sorts of medicines due to her history of collapse, involuntary head movements, visual impairment, previous blood clots, stress and more. There will be tradeoffs because the various drugs, stimulants or depressants, will impact her mental functioning. I’m assuming that if they did a drug test for the debate the way they do for the Olympics, she would not make it to the stage.

86 Dr. Jellyfinger September 26, 2016 at 9:35 AM

I’d put an end to all this sitting for the national anthem crap really easy. Right before they play the ” Star Spangled Banner” they should play James Brown’s “Living in America”. Nobody could sit down for that & they’d look pretty stupid sitting down for the anthem right after it.

The sensitive FBI data obtained by Breitbart Texas revealed that most of the encounters occurred near the US-Mexico border.

Some of the incidents which are classified as ‘Known or Suspected Terrorist Encounters’ indicate that suspected terrorists attempted to sneak into the US across the border.”

Hillary Clinton’s plan would decrase the number of uninsured by 9.1 million while Donald Trump’s plan would add another 20.3 million to the list of uninsured. If you don’t vote to stop Trump, you are responsible for the deaths of those poor uninsured souls who could have been saved with access to medical care.

Politico Magazine’s team analyzed every statement made by both Trump and Clinton for five days and said “the conclusion is inescapable: Trump’s mishandling of facts and propensity for exaggeration so greatly exceed Clinton’s as to make the comparison almost ludicrous.”

The words “almost ludicrous” ricocheted around Twitter.

Politico found that Trump averaged “one falsehood every three minutes and 15 seconds over nearly five hours of remarks” while Clinton averaged one falsehood every twelve minutes.

Overall, the news outlet counted 87 “misstatements, exaggerations, falsehoods” from Trump and eight from Clinton.

93 Dennis September 26, 2016 at 7:03 PM

Also, how different would it be if you had said “9.1 m more Citizens of other countries” will get more Healthcare paid by tax dollars, under Hillary, compared to “20.3m non-citizens will lose US tax funded health care” under Trump.

95 Republican Gov Wrecked Economy So Bad He’s Started Censoring Reports September 26, 2016 at 7:45 PM

Kansas is bleeding money and jobs and Governor Sam Brownback doesn’t want the people to know how devastating his economic policies have been.

Kansas House Minority Leader Tom Burroughs, who was quick to point out the irony.

“The missed revenue marks, missed job reports, missed projections shed light on his failed policies. I kind of find it a little ironic they chose to go to a federal government report after they blamed President Obama for our economic problems.”

Governor Brownback’s economic experiment is a complete failure and a joke. Kansas’ economy is now in shambles and Republicans have no one to blame but themselves. They believed that by implementing an extreme conservative fiscal policy without interference from Democrats that they would prove trickle-down economics as a total success. Instead, it failed miserably and now they want to censor any results from being reported.

By all rights, Brownback should have ousted by voters in 2014. But now Kansas is stuck with him and his failed policies for at least another two years. Meanwhile, the wealthy are laughing all the way to the bank.
