Yikes.

What is that map showing, Dave (in MA)?

Trump called it. ISIS now attacking Kirkuk instead of Mosul.

Henry, you linked this in a previous thread but then said it didn't have an internal link. The Podesta Emails 14 were just released a few hours ago, so who knows. Thus far I've found one other site also carrying it. If true, it's Bye Bye Foundation.

Porchlight,

It's a widespread internet outage caused by a DDOS attack. http://finance.yahoo.com/news/theres-major-problem-internet-thats-130316780.html

So just to be clear.
Kaine actually said this and we have absolute proof.

Matt - deplore me if you must

So in reality they are calling bullshit on their own bullshit. Interesting.

buccaneer morgan

Its the ouruboros, but they don't read their own paper.

Porchlight

Trump announced his VA leadership team for GOTV there, which includes Dave Brat. He is spending time there. He wants the state.

Meanwhile, she's mostly limply defending FL and hanging out in NC - the two closest states in 2012. If she's really wrapped up the election, those should have been taken care of long ago and she should be in Georgia and Arizona - right?

And she ignores OH and IA (surrogates don't count) where Trump is giving her a big fight.

It makes no sense.

James D

Porch, it makes sense if their internal polls are showing something very different than the polls that are produced for public consumption.

James D

It also makes sense if you assume that her handlers understand the reality that she's dislikeable and unpleasant, and having her campaign in person is probably a negative rather than a positive for her in most cases.

repeated:
IMO, Hillary Clinton should have been arrested at least by the end of the 3rd debate. I would have preferred that she be arrested the minute she revealed the beyond top Secret fact about our nuclear reaction time.

Porchlight

That's what I'm inclined to believe, James D....but I am still feeling gunshy after 2012.

Forgot to mention above that VA also extended its voter registration deadline, supposedly because of a website that went down.

What if the Dems aren't making their registration numbers there? Would be super easy to disable a website to provide an excuse.

Someone’s Facebook comment: I give up trying to understand why some of my intelligent friends can stand behind this gent? maybe I'm hearing a totally different rhetoric than others. his statements, his whining, his schoolyard ravings., his praise of Putin ???on and on..I guess you're seeing a totally different ??? . . .

My replyYes, you are hearing a different rhetoric. I have been conversing with a retired military officer from Washington. Reads the NY Times, Washington Post, and listens to NPR every day. That explains the disconnect.

I approach it from the position that someone who lies to me does not respect me. Hillary, as William Safire, NYT columnist evidenced, is “a congenital liar”.

Secondly, I know more history, economics, and political theory than the average college grad and what Hillary is working for screams historical patterns that don’t work.

Third, any student of Alinsky, Gramsci, and Marcuse, understands that they use words that sound good to your common understanding of what they mean, but to them they mean something quite different and insidious.

Come back in a few years when you discover how you have been had.

Porchlight

sbw,

As I'm sure you know, they're not really "trying to understand."

I have lib friends (and family, most recently my mom) ask me all the time why I think the way I do. Then I tell them, and then they argue with me.

It's just a slightly more polite way of starting a fight, IMO.

BR--

Each day, when the new Wikileaks Podesta e-mails come out I search by newest e-mail date first. I have not found a single e-mail dated after March of this year. The statement by Kaine may exist, but I don't think it's in the Podesta collection.

FWIW, I don't think there will be any dynamite in the Podesta stuff simply because they don't pertain to the general election for the most part.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

BR,

Watch out. If they don't have a link to a wikileaks email, it could be disinformation.

Last night on Reddit they noticed some of this. It's being done so as to let dems say "See, it's fake!"

I don't doubt that conversation goes on, but until I see an actual email from Wikileaks I am not biting.

There was a power outage, and also Comcast outage, in our neighborhood on Wednesday.

My dad was a WWII Navy radioman . . .
I got the bug from watching my dad. We would listen late at night to a little shortwave radio in the dining room and he would set the typewriter up on the table and show off.
I would pay any amount of money to experience that again.
Posted by: Buckeye | October 21, 2016 at 10:29 AM

Buckeye - Thanks for your story.

My dad was a WWII radioman, too.

I remember him showing us kids how to 'key' Morse Code on a practice device he had, and being about five yrs old, wondering how *anyone* could tap out letters that fast, let alone understand what all the dots and dashes meant when he heard them.

I would pay any amount of money to experience that again, too.

BR, without a link to an email in the wikileaks site... it is very suspect. If you go to the wikileaks podesta 14 and enter that phrase in the search, do any emails pop up? (Hint, they did not for me). You have been spoofed no matter the retweet count or "source"

My now gone BiL was a 17 y/o radioman on Okinawa. He then went to Korea and was promoted to LT; then Vietnam.

He retired in 1971 as a LTC. Never talked about it except for the embassy duty in Copenhagen and Teheran in the 50's.

Copenhagen was his "Niagara Falls". I mentioned at dinner how boring that city was and he near exploded. Funniest thing. A few years later he and my sis went there on business and he agreed with me.

A lot of difference between being a young LT postwar and going back 40 years later.

Heads up-

"A labor-backed pro-Hillary Clinton advocacy group is transporting Florida college students to early voting locations, beginning next week. For Florida's Future, a super PAC and 501(c)(4) organization, is operating shuttles at nine college campuses that will bring students to polling places starting on Monday. The group is affiliated with the Washington-based For Our Future , a PAC funded by several national labor unions, including the AFL-CIO, the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers. Organizers have held voter registration events at college campuses in recent weeks. "

Two big reasons to watch Bartiromo.

DebinNC

Jack's Ebay link didn't show the Learn Morse Code cassettes we had long ago. Wondering, I checked to see if there's a Boy Scout Morse Code Merit Badge and if there was, it's been replaced by a new and likely dumbed down "Signs, Signals, and Codes".

Porchlight

The only way to confirm anything you see that is supposedly from Wikileaks is to go to Wikileaks and search directly. It's an easy site to search (kudos to them for that).

Because the leaks are finally penetrating now, people are going to try to spread disinfo so as to discredit them.

It's good news in that they wouldn't be doing this if they weren't scared.

Thomas Collins

Porchlight, even if her internal polls reflect the RCP average, her strategy makes sense. The RCP average indicates she is ahead but not in landslide territory. To win, she needs to firm up the battleground states. I think the notion that she could achieve landslide is so much nonsense that we heard just after the conventions and a few days after the release of the pussytape. It's a dream of Dems, but not realistic.

If her internals reflect Raz/LATimes and IDB-TIPP, all the more reason for her to slog it out in the battleground states.

Buckeye

I actually have a key and a practice oscillator collecting dust in a box somewhere.

Porchlight

daddy,

Re: that photo.

Following the Al Smith dinner threads on The_Donald last night, I think it's safe to say that Maria and her rack were mentioned approvingly at least six hundred times. Not an exaggeration. :)

It's cute because being younguns, many or most did not know who she was. I love seeing kids who know almost nothing about politics being so enthused for Trump. They are all trying to "redpill" their friends and family, too.

My 12:26 was a question and now to be clear we don't have proof so the answer is no.

Tom R

Repost from the last thread.

In the 2012 election roughly over 125 million people voted which means around 92 million eligible voters did not vote. Someone correct me if I am wrong but isn't pretty much every single poll basing their turnout on the 2012 turnout? I have always been under the impression that a significant chunk of Trump's appeal is coming from this group of 92 million citizens who did not vote in 2012 (which strikes them from any Likely Voter sample).

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2016/10/21/the-movement-24-million-watched-trump-facebook-live-event/#more-123450

This pro-Trump website projects over 73 million votes for Trump (Obama got 65+ million in 2012 while Romney got 60+ million). No idea how that website is coming up with 73 million votes but obviously a lot of them are coming from the 92 million who did not vote in 2012.

I am still cautiously optimistic that Trump wins going away.

Re March: If they had anything more recent, I think Wikileaks would present it. There's a cluster of stuff in the mid-March timeframe but nothing at all from the summer. I just hope they found other accounts of the assorted Hillary Henchcritters. Podesta was obviously a "deep background" figure with no official role.

But enough about Hillary already.

Seriously, Buckeye, hope Buckeyette makes a speedy recovery. What happened to Ann? I missed that.

Beasts of England

That's my take on the situation, as well, Tom R. There's a huge disinterested swath on the right side of the spectrum that have felt like 'What difference does my vote make - they don't care about me.' Trump is reaching them, in my opinion, and why the present hand-wringing about getting to 90% of the traditional Republucan vote is not as important.

That's the understood strategy, anyway. We'll know in a few weeks whether the silenced majority is a real factor, or not.

Another Bob

I gotta make a comment on the previous thread.

Mr. Maguire, what the hell are you smoking? What "impressive resume" does Hillary have?

A carpetbagged term and a half as senator where she actually did next to nothing, a shady appointment as secretary of state where everything she touched turned to shit?

This is an impressive resume? Jesus...

Captain Hate

From Rupert's Gazette:

Some of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's posts on Facebook have set off an intense debate inside the social-media company over the past year, with some employees arguing certain posts about banning Muslims from entering the U.S. should be removed for violating the site's rules on hate speech, according to people familiar with the matter.

The decision to allow Mr. Trump's posts went all the way to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who ruled in December that it would be inappropriate to censor the candidate, according to the people familiar with the matter. That decision has prompted employees across the company to complain on Facebook's internal messaging service and in person to Mr. Zuckerberg and other managers that it was bending the site's rules for Mr. Trump, and some employees who work in a group charged with reviewing content on Facebook threatened to quit, the people said.
