Mrs. JiB's Belgian bank stocks were down 22% after Brexit vote and now they are close to parity the day before. I told her "Don't Panic, Don't Panic!"

But it was still a gut shot and almost empty the wine fridge of our remaining bubbly:)

The left is always so vicious because they know if anyone actually dares to say the emperor is buck tooth nekkid the whole facade falls.

We can't go back, not because they think we'll devolve into a twilight state of nature, but because we'll realize that not only are we more prosperous without their yoke but we don't need a damned left wing overseer with a whip in his hand driving us on to his mythical utopia in his larded up wagon.

Trump takes lead in new Rasmussen poll 43 to 39

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on June 28-29, 2016 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

rump how holds a 14-point lead among men, while Clinton leads by six among women. The candidates are tied among those under 40, while Trump leads among older voters.

Clinton continues to hold a wide lead among blacks. Trump leads among whites and other minority voters

windansea,

I hope the general polls follow the same pattern as in the primaries. As soon as he started to lead just a little, the polls just kept going up for him, week by week, little by little, with only one or two exceptions.

I tried to see what rasmussens percentages were for this poll, couldn't find them but suspect it was more realistic than some earlier polls with plus 12% of dems vs pubs.

From my experience certain polls are always in the bag for the dems by using outrageous samples, then right before the election they use more realistic samples to save face. I think Gallup historically says dems average plus 6% but this is a strange year and there's no telling what 8 years of jugears has done to the electorate.

It is my understanding that the Governor of Hawaii has already declared: http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/hawaii-governor-signs-bill-putting-gun-owners-database

"automatically notify police if an island resident is arrested anywhere else in the country."

Nothing is being done apparently to identify any non registered gun owners. IMO, if Hillary wins it will be nation wide. Of course, not a single gun owner in Chicago will be affected because none of the guns used in crimes in Chicago are registered apparently.

maryrose,

Do you think Trump is qualified to be Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces?

“Kasich called the GOP front-runner ‘clearly not prepared to be president of the United States, commander-in-chief, leader of the free world,’ while at the same time appealing Thursday to Trump supporters to join the Ohio governor's long-shot quest for the White House,”

Do you think Donald Trump is a bully?

A bully never expects anyone to fight back. And tonight you saw what happens when we did. See you on the trail, Mr. Trump.

Semantics? It's essential to the accurate understanding of the discussion. Sorry you choose to deflect instead of admitting that you were wrong.

There's an entire set of people who haven't endorsed Trump - no big deal. A subset of that group is the NeverTrump crowd - those actively working against him - that subset is the Tanyas, not the entire set. Figure it out.

Kasich and/or his surrogates recently sent out polls saying he stacked up better against Hillary - that's actively trying to undermine Trump. Sheesh.

I think it directed at Kashich especially. The mailman's son is sending out fund raising letters showing Trump losing in swing states but Kasich winning the majority of them. He is in it to the bitter end, which is what it will end up being. Humiliated in your own State.

No one is asking you to roll over mr, but you do like to hurl personal insults at others and you refuse to have factual discussions on the merits. If you choose to express your thoughts and beliefs in writing on a public forum, we are all free to judge what you are revealing about yourself. Most of us are kind enough not to then be explicit in what we are thinking. However, there was a mean-spiritedness to that last comment of yours that deserved to be read by others as a reflection of something deeply troubling in your frame of mind.

That is not a personal attack. You are a grown woman and responsible for what you write and the tone of it.

I hope that is not true about Cruz, cheerleader, as I haven't seen much recently that would suggest such. I'm open to a link, though.

He has a great political future, but he might destroy it with those tactics; and if he thinks when they dump Trump that they'll hand him the crown, then he's lost his mind.

What I know is that several Cruz ex-campaign staffers and/or donors have been dropping hints. This does not constitute proof against Cruz, although an endorsement and a notice to stop this type of snarking would be gratefully appreciated.

It could be that some of his former staff just doesn't want to give up the dream.

For the last several days his tweets seem to have been about nothing except terrorism, without any politics.

Speaking of voluntary associations . . . I would venture to say that at this point close to one half of those who used to think of themselves as "Republicans" have emotionally already left the party--myself included. Call it the GOPeXit. That emotional break is what allowed us to vote for Trump in the primaries (I didn't), or what is allowing us to support him now as the legitimately elected nominee (I now do)--and all in the face of being repudiated as racist and ignorant and all manner of pejoratives by the leaders of the party we used to belong to emotionally but no longer do. Once you've emotionally quit on something--be it a relationship/marriage, or a job, or a political party--the physical act of leaving is much easier.

You want to talk about needing to persuade. Well, the GOPe is going to have a real persuasion problem on their hands if Trump loses. Because no matter how much anyone might argue otherwise about whose fault the loss will be, the Trump voters are going to blame it all on Ryan, McConnell and the GOPe. Now imagine the difficulty in getting those voters to turn out in the future for a party they've already emotionally, if not physically, quit on and vote for Paul Ryan or some other tomato can, who from their point of view behaved with dishonor, disparaged them to their face, and basically said we don't want you fly-over racists in our clean toga party anymore. So, okey dokey, but try winning any office above dog catcher without us, fools.

I remember TC as being a vociferous opponent of Trump during the primaries, and yet now he has emotionally broken with the party. And that has nothing to do with Trump, who he didn't even support, and everything to do with Ryan, McConnell, Kasich, et al.

To me, anyone who believes Ryan, Kasich, McConnell, and possibly even Cruz are looking out for what is best for the country, let alone their party, rather than just themselves are being used. And not in a nice way.

Yesterday, I linked to the additional views that Reps. Jim Jordan and Mike Pompeo presented in connection with the report of the House Select Committee on Benghazi. I’m told that a major reason for submitting additional views was the unwillingness of Trey Gowdy, chairman of the committee, to present any conclusions in his report.

Gowdy and the chief investigator decided just to present the facts — no conclusions. If they thought this odd decision would win approval from the mainstream media, they were mistaken. Most outlets referred to the report as a Republican report, rather than the report of the committee.

That Gowdy sure is a bulldog, huh?

derwill,

I guess my first emotion about all of this is profound sadness. At one time I held the Bush family in high esteem. I stood out in the cold at the statehouse demonstrating during the Florida recount. I defended almost every action of W because I trusted he had a good reason and had the country's interests at heart.

Sadly, I no longer think that the case. I think there wee too many wheeler dealers amongst his donors, too many opportunists (as we have seen from the book contracts, new jobs, and political campaigns).

I guess what galls me is that he (and Jeb) never once defended us during this last 8 years. It was sort of like "Oh, well. Whatever." I thought he could have at least said something, or if not him, surely Jeb. But no.

I switched parties after 1 term of Jimmy Carter. Voted for Reagan and never voted for a single dem since.

But really, I am done with them, except for this year's vote. After that, if Trump doesn't win, I will support a 3rd party based on Trump's principles.

They have no one to blame but themselves. I can take almost anything, but the contempt for the voter and the mocking of the working class (my people) has just been too much to bear.
