Donald Trump unleashes a blitzkrieg of bile in an attempt to exploit fear for votes

donald trump puzzle

Trump’s response to the tragedy in Orlando has been anything but presidential. While more sober voices have urged a calm, but determined response to this latest mindless act of violence, he has advocated a wild-eyed, scatter-shot approach that seeks to damage as many targets as possible with the anger and resentment that are the foundation of his campaign.

He ignored the fact gunman Omar Mateen was an American born in New York, portraying him instead as a foreign intruder allowed into the country by slipshod immigration policies crippled by political correctness. He all but called U.S. President Barack Obama a traitor, implying none too subtly that the president of the United States secretly sympathizes with radical Islam. He heaped praise on himself while insisting he sought no praise. He widened his call for a ban on Muslims entering the country to a ban on entry from any country where there had been a terrorist attack, a blockade so sweeping it would presumably include Canada and much of the Western world. Once residents of Canada, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and large parts of Africa had been forbidden entry into the U.S., who does the Republican nominee figure would be left?

NBC Presidential Poll: Clinton Expands Lead Over Trump, Third Parties Receiving Double Digits With Almost No Media Coverage

Presidential candidates poll
EAN Editorial note: A presidential poll even more recent than the one in the story below shows candidates Jill Stein and Gary Johnson with almost 25% of the vote between them, so it seems that third parties may be gaining traction quickly. This is impressive seeing that the mainstream media has barely covered either the Green Party or Libertarian Party candidates so far.
more recent poll
This more recent poll also included Bernie Sanders who received an impressive 40% of the preference votes.

Now back to the main news story…

The poll found Clinton was ahead 49 percent to 42 percent. The week prior the former secretary of state led Trump 48 percent to 44 percent.

Clinton also led in the poll when the race was expanded to a four-way competition that included Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Clinton earned 42 percent support, Trump 38 percent, Johnson 9 percent and Stein 5 percent.


Google denies search bias, burying bad Hillary Clinton stories

google search

SourceFed, a news and pop-culture website, has accused the world’s largest search engine of “actively altering search recommendations in favor of Hillary Clinton’s campaign” by filling in searches for potentially negative terms like “crimes” and “indictment” with inoffensive substitutions such as “crime reform” and “Indiana.”

“The intention is clear. Google is burying potential searches for terms that could have hurt Hillary Clinton in the primary elections over the past several months by manipulating recommendations on their site,” SourceFed’s Matt Lieberman said in a Thursday video.

The analysis found a very different result with Google’s top competitors, Bing and Yahoo.

When spotted the terms “Hillary Clinton cri” and “Hillary Clintion ind,” Bing and Yahoo brought up as their top choices “Hillary Clinton criminal charges” and “Hillary Clinton indictment” as part of their auto-complete functions using the same key letters, according to SourceFed.

Jill Stein and the Green Party: “Plan B” for Bernie Sanders Supporters

While Clinton’s success at the polls is disheartening for Sanders supporters, all hope isn’t lost. Dr. Jill Stein, the Green Party nominee, has spoken up to let Sanders supporters know that the fight isn’t over.

“There’s a plan B here to continue to fight that revolution,” the Massachusetts physician stated. “We are here in the event that [Sanders supporters] feel like they don’t have a place to go.”

Dr. Stein and Sanders are very similar candidates, as they are both progressives who share the same stances on many important issues, including abortion, green energy, fracking, and healthcare for all.

Naomi Wolf: What Really Matters in This Election Cycle

It is clear that the old left-versus-right duality, the lens through which we have been asked to view American politics, is really dead—or rather, that we can now see that it is a distraction. The understanding that we are in a time in which the real conflicts are not conservative versus liberal, but the many … Read moreNaomi Wolf: What Really Matters in This Election Cycle

Donald Trump says there is no California drought

According to Trump, there is no California drought. It’s apparently part of a conspiracy. To save a fish.
“We’re going to solve your water problem. You have a water problem that is so insane. It is so ridiculous where they’re taking the water and shoving it out to sea,” Trump told thousands of supporters at the campaign event.

Green Party’s Jill Stein could be spoiler

Stein, who was the Green Party nominee in 2012 and is the near-certain standard-bearer this time as well, told The Hill that the likelihood of Trump and Clinton being the major-party nominees “creates a very propitious situation for the American people to actually have some choices.”

Greens party leader, Van der Bellen, Austria’s president-elect talks of uniting country

“Obviously many people in this country feel they have not been seen or heard enough, or both. We will need a different culture of communication, politics that does not focus so much on itself or on publicity but on the real issues, real concerns and fears and even on the anger of some people in this country,” said Van der Bellen.
