    No pillow for Hillary. After a few minutes, she stood and then leaned on the chair rather than sitting on it. No significance though

  2. Fred Stiening says:

    The most important thing I learned in Trump’s half hour was that Trump has had his initial classified security briefing. His characterization was that the people who briefed him explained that Barack Obama consistently ignores the information they provide. That is totally not surprising.

    All things considered, I thought Matt handled it very well. The producers had the narrative of using the veterans as props – the feminist, the black guy, the nerdy analyst, the PR person who served in Iraq, the rape question, the suicide question… Matt’s follow ups were on point and not overly hostile. Trump is fast on his feet.

    I have to admire him. With Melania sitting in the front row in that dress, most men’ s tongues would be hanging out. Without a doubt, Melania Trump would be the hottest First Lady in American history. Not that anyone cares.

    Audio of Trump calling in to Howard Stern on the 1 year anniversary of 9/11

    Resolution 1441 at the UN was still 2 months in the future. The Stern phone call was a month before Hillary gave her speech demanding that George W Bush invade Iraq. Trump says “Yes I guess so” when questioned by Stern on the 9/11 anniversary. My take is more that Trump knows Stern is a moron and wanted to change the subject rather than engage him in a discussion. The War in Iraq had no connection with 9/11, except people like Stern who were stoking the fire of war.

    I saw both of them and still feel that rather than presenting their point of view, they engaged too much into bashing the other side. I would like some definite points from Trump instead of non-sequiturs. From Hillary, I tried to stay with her but I find it very difficult. I just cannot stand her. I find her every move, every action absolutely disgusting. I find it difficult to believe that some of those ex-military are Democrats. That just does not compute in my mind. And… the undecided? At this point in time I would call them CLUELESS.

      Trump did a lot of sidestepping, diverting into his talking points that had nothing to do with the subject matter. The thing about sexual assaults he really avoided confronting his original tweet that the rise in sexual assaults was due to the military putting women in new situations. A common problem that really irritates me is that “sexual assault” is not a synonym for rape, which was front and center in his question Rape is rape. Unwanted physical contact (touching a woman inappropriately) is not raping her. This confusion is diluting the meaning of rape.

      Trump might have defended his tweet by saying something like the military tried to change too fast without considering the possibility of the problem and maybe increasing training – but he basically just pretended the tweet didn’t really mean anything.

    Did you see Gary Johnson’s “What is Aleppo?” I thought it was hilarious. You could see his “deer in the headlights” expression while going through the rolladeck in his brain. I think he has used too much “medicinal pot” and needs to back out into reality. I often wonder, what makes these hopeless pols believe they have a real shot at the price? Must be a matter of personal pride as they will be referred by the cognomen “Presidential Candidate.”

    • Fred Stiening says:

      How many Americans could point to Syria on a map without the country being labeled? I think I’ve been pretty clear that I opposed US military involvement in Libya and Syria.

      Johnson in a distraction. I have voted for libertarians in the past for President, and refused to vote for Ronald Reagan. I have even voted for a Democrat once, and supported Bernie Sanders because of his opposition to US military aggression.

    Larry King has interviewed Trump in King’s role working for Russia Today

  7. TheChairman says:

    So… what about the claims that Hillary was wearing an inductive earpiece (i.e. being coached)? Apparently, this was confirmed by an NYPD spokesman for forum security.

    • Fred Stiening says:

      What is the most credible source reporting the NYPD confirmation? Welcome to the right wing echosphere that just all repeat each other without doing any actual research.

      One person is stating with certainty in the comments at the site Drudge linked to that the device is an Otto V1-10611

      Give it a look and see if you can tell why that is not possible. People on the Internet lie.

      I dislike the entire process – the people asking questions were reading their own questions from pieces of paper so they didn’t go off script.

      If I were Trump, when the man posed the story that his daughter decided not to join the military because of the sexual assaults, I would have asked the man – “when she brought this up to the recruiter, what answers was she given?” I would bet that the daughter never talked to a recruiter and the daughter never had any interest in joining. The producers of the show wrote the narrative. The format precluded asking the questioner for details.

      As others have alluded to, veterans who live in New York are not very representative of the country. The biggest hint was that Hillary got large applause and Trump got very little. I noticed also that at the beginning of the Trump segment, many of the seats were empty.

    Interesting, but I suggest that this is the election about: Will America put a killer, traitor, liar, thief and life-long power grabber in the White House or not? Trump can sit on the sidelines and do nothing – this is about how ignorant and stupid we Americans are. Vote for Hillary because she is a woman? Sure that makes perfect sense.

  9. JayMar says:

    Someone recently said that this election is like playing Russian roulette with a fully automatic weapon or with a revolver with one bullet. I would chose the revolver, my chances of shooting myself are 1/6 which means I have a good chance of survival.

    Fred, I would have never guessed you supported Bernie, but I agree to a certain extent. Personally, if we are to use the military, the politicos need to step out of the way, unfortunately that is not so. Even going back to Lincoln you can see the micro-managing by presidents who had no idea what they were doing.

    I disliked Reagan because he foisted the Bushies upon us, and yes once I voted Democrat, the only vote George Wallace got in Brooklyn, NY. Wallace even answered me later after I telegrammed him upon the loss of his wife, Lurleen.

    Ole charlie rose on CBS this morning really attacked that new girl Trump hired, what is her name, ‘KellyAnne’ but she gets paid good I bet. Rose is a hack. He is a bitter old man.
    Rose played that clip of Trump on the Sten show. Trump said ‘Yeah I guess,,’ on supporting the war . I heard it. It sounded like me at work, when I am told to do something that I don’t agree with. I say ‘yeah I guess its ok’ He sounded like he had disdain in his voice.
    I have to say that I agree with something that my bosses say , because I want to keep that check rolling in every two weeks. Even if I think its total BS. I am just lucky its not on moral issues or life and death issues, generally its general stupidity, do we add this feature to the software, do we continue to support OS2 Warp, why do we have a fax machine that no one uses? I work with baby boomer monkeys that know everything
    So I do the same thing trump said ‘yeah I guess’ : )

    • Fred Stiening says:

      Well, you heard it the same as I did. I’m confident Trump listened regularly to Stern and already knew Stern was just trying to draw him in to a political argument. Trump knows that ignoring Stern or confronting him gets you nowhere.

  11. Fred Stiening says:

    This is going way off on a tangent, but occurs to me looking at the frames above they selected for the video. There was an Olympic wresting match a long time ago where the referee from Cuba constantly repositioned himself so the American wrestler was looking at the Cuban referee, who would immediately break the wrestlers apart any time the American wrestler was gaining an advantage.

    The pictures above say “I’m behind Hillary” and “I’m confronting Trump”. It’s a very clear message.

      >”The pictures above say “I’m behind Hillary” and “I’m confronting Trump”. It’s a very clear message.” <

      You are exactly positively correct Fred.
      Even ole Julian Assange calls Hilliary Clinton 'a demon' who 'will put a noose around our necks'. LOL That was from the Dailey Mail 8/31/2016.

    Big ‘Hill’ is down, in NYC. The Algore amazing interwebs are all a buzz.
    Metal object falls out pants leg she collapses and secret service has to carry her to her modified ambulance/suv.
    They admit pneumonia. Dr Ted Broer on the Dave Hodges show, tonight has said she has Parkinson disease. ( he yapped on that for twenty minutes)
    They ( Dem establishment) are hiding something.
    False flag coming up boys, because they will not allow Trump in the white house.


  13. Parrott says:

    Saw this over on Google finance reading about the ‘Bayer ‘ company from Germany is going to buy Monsanto (USA) . Thats uh, interesting ?
    But this is why the post:
    Headline “(CNN) Donald Trump has opened up a five-point lead over Hillary Clinton in Ohio, according to a new Bloomberg poll released Wednesday.”

    Thats not a Qunnipiac poll unfortunately so we don’t know how accurate. I cannot believe ‘bloomberg’ would come out with that type headline.

    • Fred Stiening says:

      Looked at the poll. Surprisingly, it is a Bloomberg poll.

      Mike Bloomberg has an incredible hatred of Donald Trump, the the point the nonstop anti-Trump stories are really jeopardizing his financial news business. Traders pay big bucks to get accurate information, not subjective opinion. CNBC and MSNBC can handke that.

      A couple things – the questions asked toward the end are extremely anti Trump, designed as a push poll – however, they did ask the who will you vote for question first. Ohio has a very small Hispanic population 3% vs 17% nationally. 24% of the responses were 65+ and older. The poll was Sept 9-12, so only partly reflects the health issue. The poll was weighted by race and age, but not political affiliation.

      Hillary’s negatives are growing. 57% of people in Ohio don’t like Hillary.

      • Parrott says:

        They love beating Trump over the head with that ‘wall’ . Bloomberg is no Republican. Trump may not be a republican, but I could not ever vote for bloomberg.

        There was a strange survey group that called here back last week. My wife answered the phone. It was somewhat normal until near the end.
        “If you had to vote for Trump, Obama or a ‘ meteor hurling towards earth’, which would you choose ? ”
        Hell, it didn’t even mention Hilliary! You can’t vote for Obo, and ‘a meteor’ ? really?
        she hung up the phone


    • Fred Stiening says:

      CNN’s poll also shows Trump +5 in Ohio. As Ohio goes, so goes the nation.

      Quinnipiac released a national poll with Hillary still up +2. Hillary is her own worst enemy. One of the little anecdotes running around is she asked at some point for help with her temper to stop snapping at people for no reason. That’s like a leopard wanting to trade its spots for a tiger’s stripes. You are what you are.
