Trump’s Hill surrogates: Stop attacking Ryan

The Trump-Ryan standoff is creating a rift in the Republican Party.

Quote:
Right now, Trump isn't heeding those calls. In his latest series of attacks aimed at the House speaker, Trump accused the Wisconsin Republican and other GOP leaders of turning their backs on him because “there’s a whole sinister deal going on.”

Trump's die-hard supporters have thus far been eager to drink of his Chalice of Paranoia.  It'll be interesting to see if this sticks.

JKR, what's wrong with Adelson's Hotel? Just curious.

They're owned by Adelson, a person who has given the Republicans something like $200 million during the last 5 years or so. His hotels are actually very nice though.

I’m one of the Central Park Five. Donald Trump won’t leave me alone.

“During our trial, it seemed as if every New Yorker had an opinion. But no one took it further than Trump. He called for blood in the most public way possible,” says Yusef Salaam, one of the so-called Central Park Five.

"Donald Trump is a dead racist walking; there's no reason for 'progressives' to vote for Clinton for fear of Trump. Even though Hillary is unstoppable, she can be slowed down in her rush to war, which will begin as soon as she imposes her 'no fly zone' in Syria. Vote Green no matter what state you live in..."

I had a posted something silimar when addressing NR a few more months ago.

"when ABC’s Martha Raddatz tried to pin down Clinton’s advocacy of a no-fly zone in Syria. “ISIS doesn’t have aircraft, Al Qaeda doesn’t have aircraft,” Raddatz pointed out. “So would you shoot down a Syrian military aircraft or a Russian airplane?” Clinton’s reply was that “I do not think it would come to that. We are already de-conflicting air space.” When Raddatz persisted—“But isn’t that a decision you should make now?”—Clinton said that she favored the no-fly zone “because I think it would help us on the ground to protect Syrians.”

http://www.newyorker.com/news/daily-comment/hillary-clintons-baffling-fo...

Who is exactly is the no fly zone deter to fly?Will russia be detered from bombing targets under the no fly zone.  Putting up no fly zone to deter is just game of chicken between the US and Russia.  You want leave a way to that the countries have way to backdown without losing face.  This a dangerous because either the US loses face or Russia loses face.  Somebody will lose face or there will be confrontation, will the US fold or will Russia fold.

With media coverage in America [and little vassal Canada] dominated by allegations of sexual assault against the Republican presidential contender Donald Trump, one would never know that the United States is on the verge of a massive escalation of operations against Syria and is preparing for a military conflict with Russia.

By framing the Nov 8 election as a struggle against Russian subversion by the 'dictator' Putin, Hillary Clinton is seeking to create the conditions for claiming a popular mandate for military escalations and a confrontation with Russia, should she capture the White House..."

I guess that the people who would benefit most from learning about the latest wikileaks are the people who are least likely to hear about them.

Methodology

This ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Oct. 10-13, 2016, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 1,152 adults, including 920 registered voters and 740 likely voters. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3 points, including the design effect, for the full sample, and 3.5 and 4 points for registered and likely voters, respectively. Partisan divisions are 33-25-33 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents, in the full sample, 32-29-33 among registered voters and 33-31-31 among likely voters.

 

Do we have any polling specialist's out their because the repub look like they underpolled.  Is this significant?

CNN They have Nancy Pilosi? Minority Leader, not one word about trump and his scandals.  See wants to talk about the issues?  And gets better she said that we should elect hillary not because she is women but for her experience.  1.Democrats has leading the assualt trump and his scandal now not a word.  2.  Appaerenly hillary no longer should celebrated as being a first woman president, now its her experience.  It seems the narrative has changed.  Waiting for more demcratic officials to see it their spin matches pilosi.

SeekingAPolitic...

The new talking point is Russia is behind wikileaks, trying to influence the election, ignore the subject of info in the email.  I think the leaks starting to hurt the campaign.

I admit I got a good chuckle out of a right wing meme yesterday. It had a picture to go with it but it was basically:

 

DNC: "Russia is trying to rig the election...by revealing how we rigged the election!"

Cody87

And with respect to Trump coming back in the polls, I think it is not that most people don't care about the allegations against him per se, from what I've seen it's that many people don't believe them.

Trump, the Arsonist of the Party

When Trump says that Hillary Clinton is “the devil” and America’s going to hell, much of his constituency — steeped in biblical prophecy, survivalist ideology and racist conspiracies — takes him literally.

If you’re not paying attention, it looks like a smoking gun—a leaked expense report tying Hillary Clinton to media’s most powerful groups.

The numbers from the supposedly leaked document—printed out and marked up with a highlighter, for good measure—are damning: $75,000 directly from the Clinton Foundation to polling firm Public Policy Polling. Over $333,000 sent, somehow, to the Black Panthers. Then the kicker: $30,000 to the “Sharia Law Center.”

Of course, the whole thing is totally fake. The header for the page, called “Voter Suppression,” probably should’ve given it right away. But for Trump supporters on Twitter and Facebook, a Fox News contributor, and even radio hosts like Hal Turner, it is still very much real to them.

There is a very real possibility the Republican Party will rend itself after the election. This would be the final spasm of a disease that began the day they allowed the so-called Tea Party to set up shop within the confines of the GOP.

Most of the more or less sane Republicans will either vote Democrat, or stay home on election day, and they will never be forgiven by the lunatic fringe that is running the party now. It could take a hundred years for the party to heal itself, and if they want to blame someone they should just look in the mirror.

Republican Party Could Recover as Early as 2096, Experts Say

Way back when Trump was first working up a head of steam, I opined that it would be a good thing if he could be *just* successful enough to cock-block some young-earth, fundamentalist Republican k00K, but not successful enough to win.

Then I put a sock in it when he seemed to be galloping into the lead, or at least into sniffing distance of it.

But now the pendulum seems to have swung again, and he seems to be the victim of a plague of frogs or some such.  But it's too late now for Cruz or Rubio or Carson or another Bush.  We live in interesting times.  How many more sleeps until he's back to mismanaging hotels?

That Trump the Chump is a candidate for President boggles the mind. So no matter how unpopular Hillary is she will still crush him.
