  • Academics swap gender of Trump, Clinton for restaged presidential debate, the results surprised them

    This is fascinating. A professor of economics named Maria Guadalupe was watching the presidential debates last year and had a thought. What if Trump were a woman and Hillary were a man? How would that change people’s perceptions of the exchanges in the debates? With the help of Joe Salvatore, a professor who specializes in something called ethnodrama, Guadalupe set up a recreation of sections of the original debates using actors to play the roles of Trump, Clinton and the moderator. All the words the actors spoke were taken from transcripts. The candidates’ body language and delivery were studied and...

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper and chief political correspondent Dana Bash will moderate a Town Hall Debate with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and Texas Senator Ted Cruz on the future of Obamacare at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 7. President Donald Trump has made repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act one of his top priorities while Congressional Democrats are opposed. Sanders, an opponent of repealing Obamacare, and Cruz, a supporter of the President’s healthcare agenda, will join Tapper and Bash to debate the fate of former President Barack Obama's signature legislation and the GOP’s approach to healthcare....

    The wife of Orlando nightclub gunman Omar Mateen was arrested by the FBI on Monday in connection with the mass shooting, officials said. Noor Salman was taken into custody in California, where her family lives, but the case is filed in Florida, where her husband massacred 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in June. "I can confirm the arrest did occur," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said on MSNBC. This is a matter that we continue to take very seriously," she said. "We said from the beginning we were going to look at every aspect of this case, every aspect of...

    Interim DNC chairwoman and disgraced former CNN commentator Donna Brazile’s decision to hand Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign confidential questions in advance of the March primary debate may have been a violation of federal law, according to a former federal prosecutor. “Stealing valuable proprietary confidential information is illegal, and debate questions are highly confidential,” Ken Sukhia, who served as United States Attorney for North Florida and who has prosecuted numerous white collar crimes, told Breitbart News.

    Cue to 2:45 for the first question to Perot. Trump is in many aspects giving Americans the chance to reset this country 25 years. I was not a fan of Perot at the time, mostly because at the time, I still believed that the system worked and that Republicans were not like Democrats, but damn if Trump doesn't sound just like Perot here. I often wish that Trump could bring out Perot for a rally or two. Perot was 100% right about NAFTA and Americans need to be remimded of the big giant sucking sound of our jobs going to...
  • YOUGOV POLL: UNDECIDED AND THIRD-PARTY VOTERS LIKED TRUMP IN THIRD DEBATE

    YouGov’s post-debate poll finds Hillary Clinton winning the third presidential debate by a 10-point margin over Donald Trump, 49 percent to 39 percent. However, undecided and third-party voters gave Trump a 22-point lead. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) When asked to chose only between Clinton and Trump in the 2016 election, 61 percent of undecided and third-party candidates picked Trump after the third debate, versus 39 percent for Clinton. This could be an encouraging result for Trump, because 9 percent of respondents to YouGov preferred a third-party candidate, or professed themselves undecided. A statistically insignificant number said they did not plan to vote at...

    The American Spectator ^ | October 22, 2016 | Wlady Pleszczynski
    The common view is that there were three debates this year between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. But what about the bonus debate last night at the Al Smith Dinner in New York? It was probably Trump’s greatest performance. Funny, self-deprecating (within reason), and devilishly biting (in the best Johnny Carson roast tradition, which apparently is lost on all the usual suspects who afterward shrieked that Trump had gone too far again; but what else can you expect from a holy man like David Gergen?). And Donald brought the best out of Hillary, if such a thing is possible. One...

    I said I wouldn’t comment on tonight’s debate until tomorrow, when I host the third hour of Laura Ingraham’s radio show. But I can’t resist, having seen how the liberal press is trying to spin what, by any objective standard, was a pretty good night for Donald Trump. It’s all about Trump’s refusal to commit to “accepting the result of the election” should he lose: Horrifying! Trump “upends a basic pillar of American democracy” by saying he will wait and see what happens on election day, because of his concern about voter fraud. But wait! Who was the last candidate...

    Donald Trump is more similar to the Founders of our country than anyone who has run for the presidency in my lifetime. What?! What?! Didn't Trump just jump an entire school of sharks in the third debate, saying he didn't know if he would accept the outcome of the election. Isn't he finished? Are you out of your bloody mind, Simon? Okay, maybe, it wouldn't be the first time... but hear me out. Put briefly: If Donald Trump believes—as many of us do—that the FBI is corrupt, the Justice Department is corrupt, the other party is hiring violent paid thugs...

    Whatever impact the third and final presidential debate of the 2016 election season may have still is to come, but the day after the event, Rasmussen had GOP candidate Donald Trump up by three points in its polling. “The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online White House Watch survey finds Trump with 43 percent support among Likely U.S. Voters to Clinton’s 40 percent,” the report said on Thursday. “Six percent still prefer Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, and three percent favor Green Party nominee Jill Stein. Another three percent like some other candidate, and six percent are undecided.” The same...
  • Hillary: All 17 of our security agencies say that Russia hacked our national computer systems

    10/19/2016 8:42:58 PM PDT · by Jim Robinson · 123 replies
    Why in the hell do we have 17 security agencies? With all of these security agencies guarding us, how in the hell did Russia (or anyone else) break in to our government servers? Are these agencies incompetent or what? And in particular, why was our state department's servers so vulnerable to hackers? Is this a sample of how a president Hillary will secure our nation's secrets?

    Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton a "nasty woman" during the last presidential debate. The two presidential candidates were discussing their plans for when programs like social security and Medicare run out, with Clinton emphasizing, "We need to put more more money into the social security trust fund." "That's part of my commitment to raise taxes on the wealthy," Clinton said. "My social security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald's, assuming he can't figure out how to get out of it." "Such a nasty woman," Trump uttered, interrupting Clinton as she repeated that it's necessary to "replenish the social...

    A Wisconsin woman is giving a whole new meaning to “political smear campaign.” Christina Ferguson, 32, a Hillary Clinton supporter, was arrested Monday night and charged with disorderly conduct after allegedly smearing peanut butter on approximately 30 vehicles parked outside what she thought was a Donald Trump rally. After bursting in – a “family-size jar of low-sodium, creamy natural Jif” in hand – Ferguson began yelling that she hated Donald Trump. When she was booted from the building, the passionate partisan proceeded to spread peanut butter on vehicles in the parking lot. But those cars had nothing to do with...

    President Obama's half-brother says he will attend Wednesday night's presidential debate in Las Vegas as a guest of Donald Trump. "I'm excited to be at the debate. Trump can make America great again," Malik Obama, the president's sibling on his father's side, told the New York Post. The 58-year-old is a U.S. citizen and splits his time between his home country of Kenya and Washington, D.C, where he has lived since 1985. "I look very much forward to meeting and being with Malik," Trump told the Post. "He gets it far better than his brother." Trump has also invited the...

    If you turn on any news channel for five minutes, you'll see a pundit or anchor lamenting Donald Trump's inflammatory talk. If it's not Donald Trump's rhetoric they have a problem with, you'll catch them whining about someone else who said something inflammatory. More than often, the rhetoric isn't even inflammatory, but they'll pretend it is just to create social proof. Dropping their jaws and holding their hands over their fragile hearts is a custom among talking heads. Whether it's the perfect specimens on The View or guests on Anderson Cooper 360, someone, somewhere finds someone's words scary, dangerous and...

    Donald Trump on Saturday repeated his argument that the election is rigged against him and returned to his suggestion that Democratic rival Hillary Clinton appears physically unfit to be president -- so both of them should take a drug test. “Looks to me like a rigged election,” Trump said at a rally in New Hampshire. “The election is being rigged by the liberal media to push outright lies to rig the election." Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, has since this summer hinted at the possibility of voter fraud in big, Democrat-run cities like Philadelphia swinging the election for Clinton and...
