op ed review 9/18



THIS WEEK’S NEWS
Trump up in most polls, Hillary sinking.   Trump up by 8 in Iowa, 13 in Missouri, 3 in Ohio, 3 in Florida.
Republican voter surge.

Donald Trump unveiled a new visual campaign theme in Miami on Friday – a mashup of the Broadway musical 'Les Misérables' and an epithet Hillary Clinton leveled at his supporters one week ago. He took the stage, introduced by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, as the 'Les Mis' anthem 'Do You Hear the People Sing' blasted through loudspeakers. The video screen behind the podium flashed to an artistic rendering of 'Les Deplorables,' complete with USA and 'Trump' flags replacing the French colors, and a bald eagle soaring over the revolutionary scene.

Trump slams Clinton gun control policies: 'Her bodyguards should drop all weapons and see what happens….’
Nation's largest police union endorses Trump...

“Donald Trump made his best case yet for his presidential candidacy Thursday. In a speech to the New York Economic Club, he tamped down on needless populism and zeroed in on the No. 1 issue affecting Americans: the anemic Obama economy and Hillary Clinton’s bizarre embrace of the policies that caused it. Now, if he can only give a variation of that speech every day until Election Day.”
“Trump presented perhaps the most important policy presentation of his campaign yesterday, to the Economic Club of New York, and yet it pales in electoral impact to his appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. No TV news operation, not even MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, could resist the video of an impish Jimmy Fallon asking and receiving permission to muss Donald Trump’s hair. Whoever thought this up (and my money is on Kellyanne Conway) identified exactly the best leverage point to redefine Trump-the-candidate as not at all scary and mean, but rather a guy who is game.”

The mainstream media, from Bloomberg News to MSNBC to Politico to the Washington Post and more, have all confirmed: Hillary Clinton’s 2008 Campaign was the original source of ‘Birtherism’ About Barack Obama
But the mainstream press continues to insist that Hillary Clinton and company were never involved in promoting "birther" rumors.

Panicked Democrats pull out all stops:  Hillary Clinton ally David Brock is offering a cash reward for dirt on Donald Trump.

Half the country thinks Clinton has lied about her health to the public.  Three in ten people don’t think she will survive her first term.
New York Daily News:  “Clinton’s cover story for her pneumonia diagnosis further proves her first instinct is to lie..”
Awkward Timing: Hillary Clinton Featured In New Issue of ‘Women’s Health’

A total of 205 Clinton Foundation donors whose corporations and foundations collectively contributed $216 million since 2009, were awarded the most coveted invitations in the nation’s capital: prestigious seats at one or more White House State Dinners.
More than $9 million of Department of State money has been funneled through the Peace Corps to a nonprofit foundation started and run by Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter. 

Lets call them Obamavilles:  Tent Cities Full Of Homeless People Are Booming In Cities All Over America As Poverty Spikes

The New York Times thinks this is great:  “progressive” parents create a lifetime of confusion for their son:   “….we didn’t want his…creative output to be curtailed by a lack of costume choices, so we (gave him) high heels, a pink straw hat, a dazzling fairy skirt and a sparkly green halter dress…..When he woke up on that last day of summer vacation, the first thing he said was that he wanted to wear skirts and dresses to first grade.”

Americans' trust and confidence in the mass media "to report the news fully, accurately and fairly" has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history.

Mexico builds its own southern border wall against migrants from Central America.

Obama marks Muslim holiday with call to accept refugees
More fundamental transformation:  Syrian refugees flood Boise, Idaho.
TV Ad Encourages German Women to Wear Hijabs…..Country gives up on integrating Muslim migrants, chooses to submit to Islam instead.

American flags placed on the quad at Occidental College on 9/11 by the school’s Republican Club as a memorial to the victims of the 9/11 attacks were “crushed, snapped” and thrown in the garbage by someone….

COLUMN OF THE WEEK
How to tell if you are a “deplorable.”  Howie Carr  9/14
Are you a “deplorable,” one of those dreadful Donald Trump supporters who so offend Hillary Clinton’s delicate sensibilities? As far as she’s concerned, the deplorables are expendable, in order to make room for her “basket” of voters, the despicable and the deportable.

If Hillary hadn’t had that problem with seasonal allergies or overheating or chronic dehydration or pneumonia or whatever they’re calling it now, her “deplorables” slur would be getting a lot more play.

Didn’t Barack Obama say a few months back that a candidate couldn’t insult his way to the presidency? I guess he was referring to Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton, apparently, can.

In case you’ve been wondering which side you’re on, you may be a deplorable if you stand for the National Anthem. Or if you know all the words to the Pledge of Allegiance, especially, “under God.” Or if when you go to Market Basket, you tend to buy generic products, because you’re using your own money, not an EBT card.

You may be a deplorable if you just got your car inspected. If you’re deployable, you’re definitely deplorable. If you wake before noon, if you call Islamic terrorists Islamic terrorists, if you don’t have an Obamaphone and you don’t believe that global warming is “settled science” — can you say deplorable? You may be deplorable if your passport, driver’s license and credit cards are all in the same name.

Saying Merry Christmas — Deplorable with a capital D!

You may be a deplorable if you wouldn’t mind showing some ID at the local precinct before you vote. You are most assuredly a deplorable if you have more than one job. You may be a deplorable if you’ve never used Western Union to wire welfare cash south of the border. You may be a deplorable if all of your children have the same last name — and it’s your last name. Or if while watching the second Monday night NFL game you were less irritated by the streaker than you were by all the fawning coverage of Colin Kaepernick on the pre-game show.

You may be a deplorable if you resent training your H1-B replacement. Or the fact that the Earned Income Tax Credit is NOT earned. Nothing says deplorable like the National Rifle Association.

If you liked your doctor and wanted to keep your doctor, if you wear pants rather than pajamas when you leave the house, if you were passed over for the job even though you got a 95 on the civil-service test — you know what you are.

You may be a deplorable if you don’t think you should have to press one for English. If you lost your security clearance and your job for mishandling classified information, you are deplorable. You may be a deplorable if you identify as a member of the gender in which you were born. Or if you drained your 401(k) or took out a second mortgage on your house to pay for your kid’s tuition at UMass while the illegal alien down the hall goes on the arm. Or if you believe that good fences make good neighbors.

You’re most definitely a deplorable if you have an American flag flying in your front yard. Or if you’ve never windsurfed with John Kerry on Nantucket, or stood in line with Sen. Warren at your local “cheese shop.” You are a deplorable if you believe All Lives Matter.

If you’ve never needed a “safe space,” or heeded a “trigger warning” — deplorable. If you’ve gone to the howiecarrshow.com store and ordered a “Proud to be Deplorable” T-shirt — yes, you know very well what you are.

“As this pneumonia episode demonstrates, Clinton’s real problem isn’t her health but the entirely valid perception that she’s dishonest, secretive and exploits ‘the system’ — including the support of the mainstream media — for her benefit.”
                      -Jonah Goldberg

“While [Hillary Clinton] slanders you as deplorables and irredeemables, I call you hard-working American patriots [who] love your country and want a better future for all our people. You are everybody. Above all else, you’re Americans and you’re entitled to leadership that honors you, cherishes you and totally defends you.”
                     -Donald Trump
