5 reasons why Democrat docu-maker Michael Moore thinks Trump will win

While the Left’s willing accomplices in the media pour on their sickening adulation of Hillary in their selective reporting of the Democratic National Convention, one Democrat is actually speaking the truth.

In a very long, tediously verbose email to his followers whom he addresses as “friends,” which you can read for yourself here, Hollyweirdo film maker Michael Moore mournfully predicts that Donald Trump will defeat Hillary Clinton this November.

By the way, did Moore take in even one Muslim refugee?

By the way, did Moore take in even one Muslim refugee?

Moore writes:

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I gave it to you straight last summer when I told you that Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee for president. And now I have even more awful, depressing news for you: Donald J. Trump is going to win in November. This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president. President Trump. Go ahead and say the words, ‘cause you’ll be saying them for the next four years: “PRESIDENT TRUMP.”

Notwithstanding his forlorn wish that he could “be proven wrong,” and despite his belief that “the American people clearly want” the Obama legacy to be continued, which the “whip-smart” Hillary Clinton who “cares about kids” will, Moore tells his followers that they must “stop living in denial and face the truth which you know deep down is very, very real.”

According to Michael Moore, these are the 5 reasons Trump is going to win:

1. Trump will win the rustbelt states of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin

These are four traditionally “blue” states in the rustbelt of the upper Great Lakes which can no longer be relied on to vote Democrat because “the Clintons’ support of NAFTA helped to destroy the industrial states of the Upper Midwest, and Trump will “hammer” Hillary on this “and her support of TPP and other trade policies that have royally screwed the people of these four states.” Moore predicts that “What happened in the UK with Brexit is going to happen here” because of the plight and anger of the former industrial workers of America’s rustbelt:

“From Green Bay to Pittsburgh, this, my friends, is the middle of England – broken, depressed, struggling, the smokestacks strewn across the countryside with the carcass of what we use to call the Middle Class. Angry, embittered working (and nonworking) people who were lied to by the trickle-down of Reagan and abandoned by Democrats who still try to talk a good line but are really just looking forward to rub one out with a lobbyist from Goldman Sachs who’ll write them nice big check before leaving the room.”

Trump understands and speaks to their anger. Moore writes:

“When Trump stood in the shadow of a Ford Motor factory during the Michigan primary, he threatened the corporation that if they did indeed go ahead with their planned closure of that factory and move it to Mexico, he would slap a 35% tariff on any Mexican-built cars shipped back to the United States. It was sweet, sweet music to the ears of the working class of Michigan, and when he tossed in his threat to Apple that he would force them to stop making their iPhones in China and build them here in America, well, hearts swooned and Trump walked away with a big victory that should have gone to the governor next-door, John Kasich.”

Some signs that Trump will win those 4 rustbelt states are:

  • All four states have elected Republican governors since 2010 (only Pennsylvania recently elected a Democrat).
  • In the Michigan primary in March, more Michiganders came out to vote for the Republicans (1.32 million) that the Democrats (1.19 million).
  • Trump is ahead of Hillary in the latest polls in Pennsylvania and tied with her in Ohio.
  • In 2012, Mitt Romney lost by 64 electoral votes. The electoral votes cast by Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are precisely 64, which means “All Trump needs to do to win is to carry, as he’s expected to do, the swath of traditional red states from Idaho to Georgia (states that’ll never vote for Hillary Clinton), and then he just needs these four rust belt states. He doesn’t need Florida. He doesn’t need Colorado or Virginia. Just Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. And that will put him over the top. This is how it will happen in November.”

2. The Angry White Man

While he has only contempt for America’s angry white men who he says are furious that the “male-dominated, 240-year run of the USA is coming to an end” and “a woman is about to take over,” Moore nevertheless sees the 2016 presidential election as the “last stand” of the “Endangered White Male” who will turn out in droves to vote for Trump.

3. Hillary Clinton

Asking his followers, “Can we speak honestly, just among ourselves?,” Moore says outright that “Our biggest problem here isn’t Trump – it’s Hillary.” Here are the dimensions of what Moore calls “The Hillary Problem”:

  • Hillary Clinton is a hawk, who “will find a way to get us in some kind of military action.”
  • Hillary Clinton is hugely unpopular — nearly 70% of all voters think she is untrustworthy and dishonest.
  • Hillary Clinton is an opportunist — she doesn’t really believe “in anything other than what can get you elected. That’s why she fights against gays getting married one moment, and the next she’s officiating a gay marriage.”
  • Young women, in particular, don’t like Hillary and “are among her biggest detractors…. [N]ot a day goes by that a millennial doesn’t tell me they aren’t voting for her.
  • No enthusiasm of Hillary means low voter turnout: “No Democrat, and certainly no independent, is waking up on November 8th excited to run out and vote for Hillary the way they did the day Obama became president or when Bernie was on the primary ballot. The enthusiasm just isn’t there. And because this election is going to come down to just one thing — who drags the most people out of the house and gets them to the polls — Trump right now is in the catbird seat.”

4. The Depressed Sanders Vote

While Moore maintains that Bernie Sanders’ supporters will vote for Hillary, he warns that “The fire alarm that should be going off is that while the average Bernie backer will drag him/herself to the polls that day to somewhat reluctantly vote for Hillary, it will be what’s called a ‘depressed vote’ – meaning the voter doesn’t bring five people to vote with her. He doesn’t volunteer 10 hours in the month leading up to the election.” That’s because Bernie supporters, being young, “have zero tolerance for phonies and BS.” And although “They’re not going to vote for Trump; some will vote third party, but many will just stay home.” And Hillary picking Tim Kaine — “a moderate, bland-o, middle of the road old white guy” — as her running mate sent precisely the wrong message to the Bernie millennials.

5. the angry, DEFIANT american

Moore calls his 5th reason why Trump will win “the Jesse Ventura Effect”. By that he means what happened “back in the ‘90s when the people of Minnesota elected a professional wrestler as their governor” simply because they could — a gesture of defiance against the establishment, “Minnesotans’ version of a good practical joke on a sick political system.”

Moore predicts “This is going to happen again with Trump” when the voter draws “the curtain and are all alone in the voting booth” — “one of the few places left in society where there are no security cameras, no listening devices, no spouses, no kids, no boss, no cops … and no one can make you do anything.” And because of “the anger that so many have toward a broken political system, millions are going to vote for Trump not because they agree with him, not because they like his bigotry or ego, but just because they can. Just because it will upset the apple cart and make mommy and daddy mad.”

In other words, like so many other political analysts, Moore correctly sees the American people as sick of the prevailing system, and they want to “shake things up,” which “President Trump would indeed do just that, and a good chunk of the electorate would like to sit in the bleachers and watch that reality show.”

Actress Busy Philipps reveals her greatest fear as a mother is that her daughters will be sexually assaulted

Busy Philipps is a Hollyweird actress most of you have probably never heard of or seen on television.  Check out her Wiki page to learn more about her. I’ve also collected some other information about her:

Busy took part in the “Demand a Plan to End Gun Violence” video (she appears at the 29 second mark).

Busy is a rabid supporter of Planned Parenthood. Here’s here Twitter profile picture (of which I’m sure the irony of her baby in the photo is completely lost on her):

busy philipps twitter profile

She’s a supporter of Hillary Clinton. And she despises republicans. Check out here Twitter feed here.

Given her political leanings, it makes sense that she wants to play the victim role.

From Daily Mail: It’s a concern all parents share for their daughters as sexual assault on college campuses and elsewhere continue to grow.

And Busy Philipps was quick to raise the subject in a cover interview for Mini Magazine‘s Summer 2016 issue, out now online. The 37-year-old, who is mother to Birdie Leigh, seven, and Cricket Pearl, three, revealed: ‘My greatest fear and worry is that one of my daughters will be sexually assaulted in her life. I know the statistics and I will try to help by starting conversations early about sex and protecting themselves, but it scares me to no end.’

The Cougar Town alum, who shares the girls with her screenwriter-producer husband Marc Silverstein, continued: ‘I really hope that meaningful steps will be taken on campuses and I hope consent becomes a part of sex ed in schools.’

And she added: ‘Part of my brain is always taken up by how to protect them, keep them alive, be a good mom.’

Read the rest of the story here.

Busy is certainly right to be concerned for the safety of her children (thank goodness they didn’t end up butchered by Planned Parenthood). And she can raise her children with whatever fears and beliefs she has in mind for them to learn.

In my opinion, this is the major difference between proggies and conservatives: Proggies look to others to protect them and for government controls in every facet of our lives that supposedly protect us. And those Hollyweird actors have bodyguards at their awards shows. They start out from a place of fear. They are victims.

Conservatives, on the other hand, look to themselves to protect their own lives and that of their families. They rely on their own parenting skills to teach their children how to be safe. And they start from a place of self-preservation rather than fear.

Teach your children well – and teach them not to be victims. Empower them!

Democrats are also chanting ‘Lock her up!’

Hillary For Prison 2016

The call to “Lock her (Hillary Clinton) up”which began at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last week is now bi-partisan.

Today is the first day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, and things are not going well for Hillary.

Already upset at Hillary’s primary shenanigans, supporters of Bernie Sanders are now doubly incensed because hacked Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails show that a DNC official had proposed helping Hillary defeat Bernie in the primary elections by publicizing Sanders is a Jew. (See “Hacked emails show Democratic National Committee to be corrupt arm of Hillary“)

At the Philly convention today, Bernie supporters have been shouting “shame” at outgoing DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, as well as “lock her up!” every time Hillary’s name is mentioned in speeches.

And when Bernie took the stage and told the delegates “And we have got to elect Hillary Clinton,” they booed.

During the Republican Convention last week, TV anchors and talking heads made a big point about how vicious and insulting the GOP delegates were for chanting “Lock her up”. I can’t wait to see the same anchors and talking heads squirm over Democrats chanting the same thing.

Also, independent investigative journalist Wayne Madsen, reporting from Philadelphia, says:

According to well-placed government sources in Washington, DC, WikiLeaks is poised to release additional State Department emails that will show that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sent even more sensitive classified information via her private servers

The emails are reportedly so damaging to Clinton, advisers to her vice presidential running mate Tim Kaine are fully prepared for the Virginia senator to pick up the reins and lead the Democratic ticket in November.

LOCK HER UP!!!

Trump’s acceptance speech pivots on America & Americans First

Did you watch Donald Trump’s speech as the Republican Party’s 2016 presidential nominee last night?

What do you think of it?

If you haven’t watched it, here it is:

It was long, because Trump did not rush his words, but clearly and emphatically articulated (and sometimes shouted) important points he wanted to impress on Americans, and because he paused often, to acknowledge the reaction from the Convention delegates. All of which was not the performance of someone just reading from a teleprompter. Instead, this was a speaker who wanted to convey and impress on his listeners the gravity of America’s problems and how he would deal with those problems.

The heart of Trump’s message is a simple one:

America and Americans First

That principle should be self-evident, requiring no defense or justification — for who else but Americans would and should put America and Americans first? Don’t you put your own and your family’s wellbeing first? How is America to help others if America falls apart? And yet, we haven’t heard this overriding principle from other politicians, not even from Trump’s GOP primary rivals. It is also a message that the Left and their MSM accomplices, as well as the GOP elites, distort and malign as something evil — that standing up for and putting America first is “nativist,” “jingoist,” “fascist”…, as if the obligation of America and Americans is to be a doormat for the rest of the world.

From his central principle of “America and Americans First” — of making America rich and strong again — flows these derivative values and principles:

  1. Law and Order: A country that is in chaos cannot thrive economically. A fundamental responsibility of government is to protect and ensure the safety of the governed against criminals, whether criminals here illegally or those gunning down police. To ensure Americans’ safety, Trump is committed to our right to arm ourselves which is guaranteed by the Second Amendment. It is also on the theme of Law and Order that Trump indicts Hillary Clinton for her lawlessness in having a private email-server while she was secretary of state, and for the Obama FBI’s refusal to indict her for violating U.S. laws and endangering national security with unsecured emails containing classified state secrets and names of CIA agents.
  2. Secure Our Borders, to protect Americans against the flood of illegals, many of whom are criminals, and of Muslim “refugees” who the FBI has admitted cannot be vetted to exclude terrorists. On this, Trump reminds blacks that they are the economic victims of Obama’s and Hillary’s open-border policy, and that LGBTs were the victims of a Muslim gunman in Orlando. In so doing, without explicitly saying it, Trump reminds whites and straights that blacks and LGBTs are Americans, and putting “America First” should also mean putting all “Americans First”.
  3. A strong military, and better treatment for our veterans.
  4. In foreign policy and affairs, the United States will jealously guard our interests, be they financial, trade, or security. Trade treaties and arrangements will be rexamined and renegotiated, in order to restore America’s manufacturing industries and jobs. Our allies will have to pay their “fair share” for military defense (Japan, South Korea, but no mention of Israel) and step up to the plate against terrorism (NATO).
  5. Revive U.S. economy: Via restoring manufacturing jobs, getting allies to pay their fair share of defense costs, and lowering taxes.
  6. Populism: Trump ended his speech by telling America that unlike Hillary, who asks if Democrats are “with her,” his message is that he is “with you, the American people”.

Trump also graciously thanked Christians and Evangelicals for their support, saying he’s not sure he deserves it, which is uncharacteristically humble for him.

So how was Trump’s speech received by GOP elites?

If the editor of a supposedly conservative publication is an indication, it’s bad news for anyone hoping for Republican party unity to defeat Hillary, who will complete the destruction of America. Below is the shockingly vicious “The Demagogue Rises,” by Matthew Continetti, editor-in-chief of The Washington Free Beacon:

Donald Trump delivered the longest, loudest convention speech in recent memory when he accepted the Republican nomination for president Thursday evening. He made no attempt to “pivot to the general election,” moderate his agenda, smooth over rough rhetoric. Gone was Mitt Romney’s Etch-a-Sketch, tossed into a dustbin with George W. Bush’s Freedom Agenda, George H.W. Bush’s Thousand Points of Light, Ronald Reagan’s Morning in America. Trump was his usual self: brash, boisterous, overbearing, defiant, inimitable, roiling with anger over the state of the country and the corruption, ineffectiveness, and arrogance of the nation’s elite. Trump won’t change, won’t learn, won’t listen, won’t apologize, won’t cavil, won’t conform to the traditions of presidential politics or adhere to the norms of political discourse. He doesn’t care about facts, he wants to overturn the postwar international order, he champions the will to power, he mercilessly attacks opponents. He’s a demagogue in dark suits, electric ties. I can only imagine what he’d be capable of if he were competent.

Because he’s not competent. He is actually truly, magnificently inept. The convention was a mess, haphazard, disorganized, weird. The botched roll call vote, Melania’s plagiarism, Ted Cruz’s hand grenade, the leaked speech draft—all of these gaffes and scandals occurred against the backdrop of dismal attendance, chants to put Hillary in prison, bizarre speakers, rambling addresses, early departures, and testimonies to Trump’s greatness. His campaign has practically no money, no advertising, no infrastructure, no grassroots operation. The other day, when he expressed uncertainty about whether the United States would lead NATO in defense of the Baltic States if they were attacked by Russia, Trump made history by provoking an international incident without even being president. Many GOP officials wouldn’t come near the convention, including Ohio’s popular governor. There are two Republican parties for the moment: the party led by Trump and the Republican Party in exile, the party of Kasich and Larry Hogan and Nikki Haley and Charlie Baker and Brian Sandoval and Mark Kirk and Ted Cruz. Election Day won’t just determine who will succeed President Obama. It will also determine the fate of Donald J. Trump’s hostile takeover of the GOP.

Continetti all but calls Trump a Hitler, and Americans who support Trump mindless Nazis.

Note that Continetti’s criticisms of Trump are all about style, not substantive issues — that Trump was “brash,” “boisterous,” and “mercilessly attacks opponents,” and that he did not pay obeisance to GOP old guard elites, who to the end strove to undermine Trump and boycotted the Republican National Convention. As for the “opponents” whom Trump “mercilessly attacked,” since the only “opponents” Trump attacked were Hillary Clinton and big business fat-cats (with apologies to cats) who hollowed out the U.S. economy with their outsourcing of jobs, that should tell us whose side Continetti is on.

If Hillary wins, it will be because of Republicans like Matthew Continetti who reserve their most vicious venom not for Democrats, but for a fellow Republican and patriot who simply wants to put America and Americans first. Should Hillary become president, the victory of Continetti, Bill Kristol, the Bushes, et al., against Trump will be pyrrhic because all that will be left of their Republican Party is an empty shell, devoid of rank-and-file members.

So what do you think of Trump’s speech? Take our simple short poll!

Why was an elite Democrat at the Republican National Convention?

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is the chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Here she is, spotted by independent investigative journalist Wayne Madsen yesterday at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz at 2016 RNC Cleveland

So, what was she doing at the RNC?

An even better question is why was the chair of the Democratic National Committee in the upper tier skyboxes of the RNC’s Quicken Loans Arena, which are reserved for fat cat GOP donors?
