From the Politik by Philip Charles
The Politik is predicting that on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, Donald J. Trump will win a landslide election, to become the 45th President of the United States.
Trump is the most popular and captivating candidate the party has nominated since Ronald Reagan. A successful businessman, Trump has been in the world spotlight for years and became a household name over the past decade with a successful reality TV show on NBC, ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘Celebrity Apprentice’.
His name adorns buildings, casinos and resorts all over the world.
Everywhere he has gone, for over a year now, throngs of fans and voters stand in lines thousands deep and hours long. In early August, in a Daytona Beach arena, Trumpdrew 8,000 screaming fans, while Hillary could only muster a few hundred the same day at a high school gym in Colorado. Later that night, in Jacksonville, Trump drew 15,000 people. This is a normal occurrence on the campaign trail.
Again, Hillary inspires no confidence in voters. Donald Trump has to turn away far more fans that Clinton can even draw at a campaign event. This is meaningful as it relates to who actually will make an effort to vote.
To prove how far his national appeal is, Trump won big in every region of the map: Northeast, Southeast, South, Midwest, Rust Belt, Northwest, West and Southwest. He won more primary votes than any candidate in the history of the party, and he did so with 17 candidates running.
He won a landslide primary, in a year in which three very popular elected officials from the big states of Texas, Florida and Ohio were running against him. That alone made it impossible for almost any candidate besides Ted Cruz in Texas, Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio in Florida and John Kasich in Ohio, to win. Not only did Trump win, but did so with ease.
The Democrats have an electoral problem, in that they need 95% of the black vote, with large turnout, just to win a general election.
Not only is a problem today, but its a far bigger problem for them in the future. As groups of a demographic grow in size, they also become more diverse. The chances are that Blacks will vote less and less for Democrat in the future, as they grow in size and diversify from evolution.
Hillary Clinton is also on the losing end of almost all variables that play in elections.
She is the incumbent party seeking a third consecutive term, which is rarely a good thing
The Economy is not producing with 90 million unemployed Americans and only 1.2 % growth
ISIS and Terrorism is striking all over the western world and within the United States borders. The Democrats refuse to even say the phrase “Islamic Terrorism.
Nearly 80% of the country thinks the United States is going in the wrong direction and Hillary Clinton has been directly involved in government for the last 25 years. In these times, experience is not a good thing.
Trump is unabashedly pro-American while the Democrats give off a perception that they are embarrassed by being associated as an American.
Trump has taken strong positions on two issues that are driving massive new voters to him: Immigration and Free Trade. Both of these issues hit right at the heart of the forgotten middle class, that has seen their jobs traded away oversees by their own elected officials.Over the past 70 or so years, typically the more physically overpowering ticket wins.
Trump/Pence or Clinton/Kaine? Who seems tougher to you?
Her husband Bill Clinton never received even half of the vote during his two Electoral College victories in 1992 and 1996. The Clintons are not as popular as the media would have you believe.
Hillary doesn’t have the heart of her party’s voters. Bernie Sanders did. And unfortunately for the Democrats, the heart of their party’s voters lost.
Trump, on the hand, is the heart of the party and beat the powerful interests groups trying to steal it from him and his record setting amount of voter
What we do know is that Trump is attracting voters from all over the map and into the Republican fold, just to vote for him. It’s how he unexpectedly massacred 16 opponents in the primary.
Don’t even bother looking at a poll. If they were any accurate or valuable at predicting, then the people who ran them would be billionaires.
As we learned from the DNC-WikiLeaks scandal, the Democratic Party and Mainstream Media manipulate polls for nothing other than headlines and talking points, meant to drive narratives and suppress Republican turnout.
Instead, think of the facts.
When the media tells you that this race is close or that Hillary is leading, just simply laugh it all off.
This election is already over and Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States.
A recent op-ed by Russian President Vladimir Putin has prompted me to respond. While his position that the Syrian conflict can and should be settled through a political and diplomatic solution is correct, virtually everything else in his writing should be taken to task. So I shall.
I begin with Mr. Putin’s disagreement regarding the exceptionalism of the United States of America. I could not more strongly disagree with him. While he is correct that God created every human being as an equal in His eyes, clearly the results of each of our efforts on this earth, individually and collectively, are not equal.
America’s exceptionalism is rooted in our founding documents and values. From the rights granted by our creator, but guaranteed by our Constitution. We should not shy away from saying so, especially when our actions are in keeping with this exceptional founding, as they were this week in our debate over going to war in Syria. Our constitutional checks and balances were on full display, largely resulting in the at least temporary halting of a rush to war.
Mr. Putin’s second mistake is to focus on the speck in the eye of the United States, while ignoring the plank in his own. He accuses the United States of alarming interventions in foreign countries. While I certainly have my bone to pick with our foreign policy over the last 15 years, the Russian President is the least qualified person I can think of to make this argument with a straight face.
We went to war in Afghanistan because they were harboring those who attacked us on 9/11. Mr. Putin’s cohorts went to war there three decades earlier for no legitimate reason.
The United States until now has resisted arming one side of the Syrian civil war – all the while the other side has been armed by Russia.
The United States has used diplomatic pressure to attempt to resolve the ongoing situation with Iran – Russia has just announced a large arms sale that will escalate tensions in the region.
Being lectured to on foreign intervention by Mr. Putin would be comical if it weren’t such a serious example of a lack of self-awareness.
Nevertheless here we are. Sometimes the enemy of my enemy is my friend, or at least my temporary ally. As Mr. Putin correctly pointed out, the United States and
Russia banded together to defeat the menace of the Nazis a generation ago. And both countries certainly face real and present threats from Islamic extremists, both at home and in areas of strategic importance.
American should not act militarily in Syria because it cannot and should not join the same side as Al Qaeda. Russia cannot and should not continue to support militarily the brutal Assad regime.
And so, the dialog that began this week must go forward, and it must be given a chance to succeed.
The issue of course, is with the participants and the details of the plan. Asking us to “trust them” is clearly not a palatable option, and we cannot act naively simply to bypass war. Any diplomatic solution must involve a clear plan to rid Syria of these weapons, with strong verification and enforcement mechanisms. As Reagan used to put it, Trust but Verify.
So while I welcome the engagement of the Russians, and the dialog Mr. Putin this week attempted to begin with our country, I remain to be convinced of the details.
And I respond to him directly with the statement that yes, American is indeed exceptional. Our history has proved it so. While we all share the same Creator, we do not all share the same richness of history regarding human rights, freedom and democracy. There has been in the past 200 years a city on the hill that has shone brighter than all others. We will not be ashamed of that. May God allow us to continue to model this example to the world in these difficult times.

The Architect of Destruction
“Obama comes from a community organizer background where it’s us against them. But that’s not who we are. And that’s not the position the leader of our Nation should take.” Dr. Benjamin Carson
Obama appears to be a tormented man who is filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. That was instilled in him by his family and mentors. It seems to have never left him.
It is not the color of his skin that is a problem for anyone in America. Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.
Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S.? Or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets “goose bumps” when a band plays “The Star Spangled Banner,” or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of “America the Beautiful?” Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday or someone plays “taps” on a trumpet? Has he ever shared the admiration of the military, as we as lovers of those who keep us free, feel when soldiers march by? It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a Grandfather or Uncle who showed us his medals and told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free. He didn’t have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America, penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.
Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn’t delight in being part of America and its greatness. He wasn’t singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the gravesites of fallen and beloved American heroes.
Rather he was separated from all of these experiences and doesn’t really understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unite us.
He has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better and grateful and proud that in a short time our country became a leader, and a protector of many. Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements as well as any critics or opposition for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego. He uses his Office to threaten and create fear while demeaning and degrading any American who opposes his policies and actions. A secure leader, who has noble self-esteem and not false confidence, refrains from showing such dread of critics and displaying a cocky, haughty attitude.
Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissention, unrest, and anxiety among the people of America, rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the “Great Uniter”). He is anything but. He creates chaos for the sake of keeping people separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue. Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security. He incites people to be aggressive toward, and disrespectful of, those of differing opinions. And through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of street-fighting gangs, when he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured.
Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.
* Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.
* Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.
* Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people on a daily basis!
Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America, and the epitome of a Demagogue.
President Ronald Reagan warned us about Barrack Hussein Obama many, many years ago. I think this further illustrates why Ronald Reagan was the greatest President in our history. He truly could recognize pure evil in his day and in our future. For me, the definition of evil is anyone that does not support our Republic and Constitution with their heart, mind and actions.
If you don’t agree with Ronald Reagan, then I say you are clueless what made this country so great and what is needed to return it to greatness. You would be a lost cause in my book. If you agree with Ronald Reagan, you are a patriot in my opinion and you will display that on election day. God bless our military and the United States of America!
“The anti-Obama documentary based on Dinesh D’Souza’s book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” expanded nationwide on Friday — with early first-place showings in the domestic box office rankings, Deadline Hollywood reports.
As of late Friday afternoon, “2016: Obama’s America” had grossed $700,000 from 1,090 theaters. That compared with $300,000 for the new big-budget, Sylvester Stallone action flick “The Expendables 2,” which is playing in 3,355 theaters, Deadline Hollywood reports.
The early showing puts Obama’s America on track to gross $1.2 million to $1.7 million on Friday alone, with as much as $3.7 million to $5 this weekend, according to Deadline Hollywood. Its afternoon ranking will likely be eclipsed by “Expendables” and several new releases, including “Ride Like Hell,” starring Michael Shannon.
Exhibitors reported that busloads of filmgoers arriving at theaters to see Obama’s America in pre-organized trips, Deadline Hollywood reports.
Last weekend, Obama’s America grossed $1.2 million in select markets, including New York City, and had a total gross of $2.1 million from a total of 169 theaters.
The low-budget film features author D’Souza outlining facts to assist viewers in gaining an understanding of the apparent motivations behind a number of President Barack Obama’s policies.
In an exclusive interview with Newsmax last week, D’Souza said that Obama’s policies are unmaking the American Dream.
So far, “2016” is the second-best gross of the year for a documentary after “Bully” ($3.2 million), but that list excludes the nature documentaries “Chimpanzee” ($29 million) and “To the Arctic” ($7.6 million), according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The documentary opened last month and is already the 12th-highest-grossing political documentary of all time. It also is the No. 2 conservative documentary after “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” ($7.7 million), according to the Reporter.”
The unqualified (in more than one way) president appeared at one time to have an easy ride to re-election, until now. Barrack was comfortably ahead in most polls. The radical dominated news media fawn upon Barrack as though he was in the words of one of his own close advisers “black Jesus.”
The black Jesus radicals are now in a panic. The first lying ads were being shown within hours of Paul Ryan being named by Mitt Romney as his VP running mate. Ryan is the tea party movement’s dream candidate and is a true conservative. Radicals don’t just hate true conservatives; they fear us and the radicals have a very good reason to fear Ryan.
The radicals keep trying to make the tea-party movement nothing more than a small gathering of extremists, but they’re waking up to the truth. This extraordinary, spontaneous, grass-roots uprising against the radicals assault upon our liberty represents not an insignificant minority, but a great majority of people in our great nation.
Ryan is a young, fresh faced, charmingly articulate true conservative. He is conservative in matters of religion, a numbers/statistics guru, opposes baby butchering with the exception being the pregnancy endangers the life of the mother and has not been fooled by the radicals climate scam. He has all the attributes for voters who have despaired over the wimpy republicans who have until now controlled the Republican Party.
Ryan’s biggest plus, however, is the one the radicals are screeching about the loudest. He clearly points out that the out of control federal spending will bring our nation down without anyone firing a single shot. He has a real plan for bringing that spending under control and the radicals have a real plan to continue that reckless pending. The far majority of US citizens firmly believe this reckless, irresponsible spending must come to a stop as soon as possible.
The true significance of Ryan’s appointment is that he is not afraid to be honest with the voters. He talks about the “gravy-train” that Barrack has set up has already tipped our nation into the gulch and it must stop. He was not afraid to look Barrack directly in the eyes and tell him the cost figures the radicals were touting about Obamacare were completely wrong (way too low) and done so intentionally. He’s an avid hunter and supports our second amendment rights 100%.
The radicals immediately spouted how happy they were Romney picked Ryan, because Ryan is an extremist and only appeal to the far right members of the Republican Party. The radicals were so happy with Ryan being chosen they immediately sent out an email begging potential supporters to donate as little as $5 to keep Mr. & Mrs. Manchurian in the luxury to which they have become accustomed. That sounds more like a panic attack than being happy. The Church of Barrack worshipers just realized way too many of us don’t drink Barry’s Kool-Aid…
