Trump should mention every day that Hillary is stalling on talking to the FBI and Comey.
Call her knit like he did with Obama and the birth certificate.
Some in the media don't like her and would probably run with it.
I am asking sincerely .
What do most of the posters here think are Trump's chances of beating Hillary if Comey does not recommend a referral to Justice.Until today I was convinced he would refer.

henry

I wonder how many of the 32 unexploded jihadis got on planes... and where they went.

maryrose

What other methods can Comey use to force Hillary to testify?
Has a subpoena been issued? All lawyers please respond.
Jane if you care to.

henry

Maryrose, I think it depends more on the George Will types shutting their pie holes instead of babbling about preferring Hillary to the [insert uniparty coordinated anti-Trump insult of the day] problem they have with Trump.

Miss Marple

Ignatz,

I agree with you. I have been reading him for a while but lately some of his stuff is questionable, and that thing today was just buncum. I have my Twitter feed on all day and haven't seen much on racism. More about Trump u, the golf course, etc.

Reminds me of when Bush was running and they started the lazy campaigner meme, when all they were doing was refusing to cover his rallies.

I go with RattlerGator. A speech about how he isn't a racist would be a stupid thing to do.

we know who inspector dreyfus is, the surprise is that judge jeanine or colonel peters, folks who should know better, apparently don't,

Are we sure Scott Adams isn't a false flag operation?

I'm not at all sure. But Adams does come out with some solid pro-Trump stuff pretty frequently.

Jack is Back!

maryrose,

I am not a lawyer but I did stay once in a Holiday Inn.

Gowdy said today that Benghazi was never about Hillary. Read the report he told the reporters and interviewers. See for yourself.

Comey is investigating a criminal activity. The FBI does nothing else. Its not about Hillary but whether there was criminal conduct. He can shape that anyway he wants. if 50 agents resign then there is evidence of a sham coverup but if they don't then you have to decide yourself if Comey being appointed the new head of the Clinton Foundation for the Enrichment of All Clintons was somehow compromised.

Your decision.

NPR barely covered the Turkish airport terrorist attack.

Captain Hate

What do most of the posters here think are Trump's chances of beating Hillary if Comey does not recommend a referral to Justice.Until today I was convinced he would refer.

I've never thought Comey would do the right thing but if Trump continues to give coherent speeches where he forcefully points out Cankles's list of out and out criminal behavior, he will trounce her in the debates and in November.

The Infamous Ignatz

--But Adams does come out with some solid pro-Trump stuff pretty frequently.--

That is a necessary condition of a successful false flag operation.

Miss Marple

It occurs to me that most of the GOPe never red The Little Red Hen.

I you will remember, she asked for help sowing the seed, harvesting the grain, grinning the flour, baking the bread. None of the animals would help.

So when the bread was baked, they all showed up to eat it. The Little Red Hen Saks, so sorry, nope, all for me and my chicks.

None of these people who are carping are willing to help. So if Trump does it on his own, he isn't obligated to any of them.

buccaneer morgan

what's interesting about adams, is his analysis of methodology, this one seems mailed in, no real thinking went into it, I guess he borrowed o'reilly's notes,

Miss Marple

I have been in n the iPad, hence the garble. Think I will go back to the office.

The Infamous Ignatz

Just to be clear, Adams' comments have been interesting and at times insightful. But the idea this is all about and depends on rhetoric rather than issues and the vast pool of seething anger over the corruption, theft and malfeasance of our elected and unelected overlords was never plausible.

Captain Hate

Reminds me of when Bush was running and they started the lazy campaigner meme, when all they were doing was refusing to cover his rallies.

Something the GOP finishing schools never do is prepare candidates on how to counteract the MFM setting the narrative and they've gotten away with pulling that crap since 1988. Trump has already shown he's willing to take this on full blast by ridiculing whoever is making the characterizations and refuting them.

The Infamous Ignatz

And I agree completely with TC, no Dem party tagging of Trump can or will stick. It has been the Quisling #nevertrump morons and the Ryan/McConnell lukewarm piss ants who have done whatever damage has been done.

The Infamous Ignatz

What Trump should and probably will do is give a speech not admitting when he stopped being a racist, but cataloging Bill and Hill's execrable personal history on race and the Dem's miserable past and present history in whole.

Jack is Back!

Unfortunately, 99.9999% of the electorate have never visited this blog or no anything resembling the attitude and political intellect of its commentors.

That said, there are big time issues driving the Trump numbers and even though they are reflected here with learned commentary, among the voters they are more simplified. Much like the rationale used to vote Leave in the UK.

So what are they? Are they "Hillary is a liar, witch and untrustworthy?" or are they, Illegal Immigration, Trade, Islamic terrorism, MAGA, religious freedom, the 2nd Amendment, Mexico and China, etc.????

What is going to persuade people to vote for Trump? The issues or being anti-Hillary or both?

Me? I am anti-Hillary. If Trump does nothing in 4 years it is 4 years without Hillary doing something we will regret.

buccaneer,

I am sure plenty of people around here have heard of him, but I really don't follow the Colts much so don't know all of the pllayers. Sorry.

Tragic death, for sure.

Jack is Back!

lyle and BoE,

One time I am at dinner in Tallahassee with the head of Thyssen USA and Tom Dewey, Jr. (Dewey, Ballentine) before a meeting on the old High Speed Rail project back in the 90's. The Sommelier brings the wine list (actually a book of immense weight and pages) to me. So I see a nice Flora Springs Cab and suggest that to the table.

Mr. Dewey snatches the book from me, finds a 86 Haut Bailly and reminds me that it is too easy to grow wine in California. You need an ancient terroir to grow great wine. If you are going to pay for a dinner to impress your friends and/or clients make sure they know you are doing the best for them.

It suddendly dawned on me that he expected me to pick up the tab:) Lawyers.

Miss Marple 2

Jack,

Around here it is jobs, trade, immigration, terrorism. On any given day, one or the other is on top due to current events..

Second tier is abortion and other social issues. Around here those don't seem to be as big a deal as in prior years.

Hatred of Hillary permeates all of it as a background noise. This is Indiana, not one of the coasts.

Beasts of England

I think there are plenty of people on the sidelines who will get to the polls and realize that they can't vote for someone they've been waiting for twenty years to vote against.

buccaneer morgan

Thyssen, the elevator people, among other things,
that project goes back to the 90s?

Did the CoC disclose their conflict of interest?

Theo

The notion that Trump's biggest problem is that Rodham and friends called him a racist (quelle surprise!) is just ridiculous. Adams is prepackaging his excuse for why his landslide prediction turned out to be wrong.

Trump has all sorts of problems but if he overcomes them and wins it will be all on him. He will, as JiB said, not owe anything to anyone.

But if he loses that is on him too. No one, not George Will, not Paul Ryan, not anyone here, is obligated to vote for him or support him or work for him. If he loses it will be no one's falt but his own. He needs to persuade people to support him and not blame THEM if he fails to do so.

Twitchy is having a blast with this

More from Bloomberg:

Donald Trump’s campaign aides are lining up a slate of iconic sports figures to appear at the national convention in Cleveland next month—including former undisputed world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, legendary Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka, former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight and NASCAR chief Brian France, people familiar with the planning told Bloomberg Politics.

“Mike Tyson endorsed me, I love it,” Trump said in April in Indiana. “You know, all the tough guys endorse me. I like that.”

Following the Indiana rally, Trump was criticized for touting the endorsement of the former boxer who had served three years in prison after being convicted in the state for raping a beauty pageant contestant.
Tyson’s presence would be extra-special in light of Trump’s remarks today:

I agree, Beasts. I think this will be driven home after Philadelphia especially.

She's basically been in hiding but she'll have to actually show up and campaign in public after the conventions. And no one really likes her, even Dems.

Trump has to pursue a Reagan type vision of economic growth rather than this protectionism nonsense. Getting the Feds off everybody's back will restore jobs.

DrJ

JiB,

It suddendly dawned on me that he expected me to pick up the tab:) Lawyers.

My current corporate attorney actually has picked up the (admittedly modest) lunch tab many times. It was a first.

Disagree. They and everyone here have been railing on her for twenty years. There is no credible argument that Trump is worse.

Miss Marple 2

Captain Hate,

He is talking about stopping the manipulation of currency, theft of patents, other countries dumping their stuff here while they refuse to buy our stuff.

It isn't protectionism to cut taxes on corporations so they bring the factories home. Both Reagan and Bush imposed temporary tariffs for just that reason.

I am too tired to discuss it tonight, but one thing I do know is that if we continue the same way with no change, we will all be poverty stricken, eventually.

Good night, everyone!

From TM's quote above:

House Benghazi Report Finds No New Evidence of Wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton

According to these two, it should say "no new evidence of rightdoing."

Two Republicans on the House Benghazi Committee have released a supplement to the panel’s final report because they felt that Chairman Trey Gowdy’s effort did not sufficiently criticize the Obama Administration’s handling of the attacks.

Uh oh,

One of Lou Dobb's guests on his special Live Terrorism coverage, a Muslim from Turkey who was in the Turkish Legislature, just called the Terrorists in Turkey "ISIS." He did not use the Kerry/Obama approved term "Daesh."

He must not have gotten the memo:(

I am mighty worried that if a Turkish Muslim calls ISIS "ISIS" instead of calling them "Daesh" this might really make ISIS, ISIL, the Islamic Terrorists Daesh mad.

Plus the stupid SOB Turkish guy even went so far as to say they were Muslims. Ai yi yi!
