Trump's Best Ammo Against Hillary Clinton

Just about everyone is waiting for what Trump will fire back at Hillary Clinton during the final months of the presidential race. He’s given some tidbits here and there but his advisory staff has a lot of ammo that Clinton is definitely not going to want to face.

Basically, Trump is going to hit Clinton were it hurts: corruption. It's the one topic no other presidential contender other than Bernie Sanders dared to bring up. That's why Sanders lost. No one in America wants someone to battle corruption because the majority of Americans make a good side income or primary income via corruption. Yes everyone's got their hands in the pot and looking the other way, thus making it impossible to remedy. Trump knows this from the ground floor up. Why? He's a real estate developer from New York! There's no way you can run any kind of a successful business in the State of New York without walking hand in hand with corruption and organized crime. It's impossible to try to avoid it. You will be directly or indirectly associated and the same goes for the lawmakers of Washington DC which Hillary is one of.

Hillary represents many corporations and Wall Street types that are and have been walking around with a bullseye on them just teasing prosecutors to attack. Prosecutors either cannot or will not go after the big people because of budgets and the chaos within the financial markets that would ensue. Trump knows this and knows how to play the game. He is nowhere near being a fool about it because he's associated with old Anglo American money which is invincible. Hillary on the other hand, has been caught with her hand in the cookie jar much too often and you'll bet your bottom dollar Trump will bring up these incidents and associations and that's when things will get hot.

Wall Street won't panic until Clinton crumbles under Trump's barrage. If it looks like Hillary is faltering, Wall Street will react with selling and defense strategies. Wall St. wants people it can manipulate not people who are going to ask questions like Trump has done.

Hillary will be in prime form with her usual repertoire of defenses but they've become so played out that not even she knows how to use them anymore. Trump's people know her game plan of avoidance and direct lying and shirking responsibility. When
Trump gets done with her it will be a miracle if she's not hauled off the stage to a holding cell somewhere.

It will start with their first debate. Hillary's pattern is to not answer a direct question but utter one or more of her accomplishments. It's call evasion. It will take a sharp moderator to reign her in and that might be to her advantage.

Hillary could hit back at Trump over his never before holding public office or not being qualified for said office. That won't work because many of our presidents hadn't served office or served one office before becoming president. In the old days most were farmers, then a combination of farmer and lawyer, and now just lawyer. Bushes had ranches and critters so at least it shows you can have one line of work that is unrelated to public office. Trump can counter that he did indeed generate thousands of jobs and more. Trump is a business man. His primary skill is solving problems before they happen and being ever vigilant where opportunity arises. Those skills are valuable in any area of life and Trump, with all his human faults shouldn't worry if Hillary attacks him on that level.

Overall, the three debates are going to go in Trump's favor. Sure he'll insult and hot button like he usually does, but he's got a lot of ammo and shielding to keep his position solid.

“In the old days most were farmers…”

Bullshit.

Once again our intrepid author drifts off into fantasyland without an anchor to tie him, even remotely, to reality.

Vast claims based on half vast speculation, and not a scintilla of proof.

Please, can we get someone that can write, knows how to do some actual research, and can, at least attempt to prove what they write is fact, not just more internet blather.

Rocky, per your comment, this article presents literally nothing to back up its claim. Then again, this could be said for a lot of the Trump campaign, as well as most of the accusations they throw at HRC. Conservatism has become a snake pit of conspiracy theories- skewed polls, Hillary has brain damage, incriminating e-mails that somehow never incriminate, corruption at the Clinton Foundation without an iota of real evidence, and so on. Still, I find it enlightening to see comments and articles, even if they have no foundation in reality.

I am quite certain that phx8 still doesn’t believe Bill Clinton was deservedly accused of, and actually punished for, wrongdoing.

The Clinton’s are not only politically powerful, but cunning and difficult to catch in their multitudinous wrongful actions.

When voters no longer care about law-breaking among the powerful, those responsible for enforcement become jaded and complicit. A good example is our Department of Justice. What a joke it has become along with our State Department.

Trump dumps his immigration plan to deport illegal immigrants. Adopts Obama’s plan. Deport violent criminals and provide path to citizenship or permanent status for law abiding illegals who pay their back taxes.

So much for Trump’s “believe me” that there is going to be a deportation force and that they [illegals] are going to go.

Why anyone believes anything this guy says is beyond me.

“The Clinton’s are not only politically powerful, but cunning and difficult to catch in their multitudinous wrongful actions.”

Seems to me that the only evidence against the Clintons is that there is no evidence. That smoking gun is just seems a mere fingernail’s width away.

Seriously, you all have had thirty years, and how many 10’s of millions of taxpayer’s dollars to prove something, anything, and all you have is Bill’s lie to show for it.

Give it a rest.

Wow GregB seriously corruption! To think Trump has the moral highground when it comes to corruption. On the one hand you have a man that told us, admitted he has paid off most of the other republican candidates for president. He even tells us he gave a donation to the Clinton Foundation so Hillary would come to his wedding! Yet Hillary is corrupt according to you. No political favors for contributing to the Clinton Foundation just a personal favor.

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/donald-trumps-surprisingly-honest-lessons-big-money-politics/story?id=32993736

ON the other hand we have many accusation but no proof about Hillary. SO many different accusations over so many years but zero charges, zero indictments, zero convictions. We are told by conservatives where there is smoke there is fire, but after so many years it seems in this case it is where there is smoke there is mirrors. Trickery, sleight of hand but no fire.

Seems conservatives have to rely upon myths misinformation half truths and outright lies. SO please explain to me how one can say Trump will beat Hillary up over corruption.

Comment #406953

Rocky, why all the angst? The article is about Trump’s best chance to defeat Hillary: using the corruption charge. That’s not going to impact my vote; I’ve always known that she has leveraged her political positions for personal gain. That goes all the way back to the ’70s with Jim Blair, Tyson, and the cattle futures scandal. But there are voters that are currently fed up with Washington sleaze and Trump will need as many of them as he can get if he has any hope of a chance.

If you look at Hillary’s career it really is the only place to attack her:

She has a better resume
She doesn’t have liberal positions
She’s been a defense hawk
As Senator she was pragmatic and worked with Republicans
Her husband signed DOMA, Welfare reform, GRA, NAFTA…

Really only the corruption of Clintonworld and her status as the ultimate Washington insider is about all Trump has. Maybe you could add gun control and the Supreme Court but those issues generally are left for those already committed to the red/blue divide. If you are ok with politics as usual and you don’t mind that she’s cashing in on the side then there is no real reason to vote for a loudmouth NY real estate guy who can’t keep his mouth shut. Trump brings nothing other than he’s not a career politician. He’s already shown, by going after the judge, that he fully intends to use the position for his own personal gain so really I don’t see any reason to vote for the man.

But just for grins I looked up the farmer thing and you are, of course, correct. 9 of the first 18 Presidents were farmers and that doesn’t reach the level of “most.”

But why attack Hillary George? Trump should be clear on how he is going to accomplish the things he tell us he will do. A solid plan for financing and building the wall. A solid plan for putting people to work in good paying jobs. How will your tax plan pay down the debt and decrease the deficit? How will your healthcare plan differ from the ACA and what good will it do? What changes will Trump require of the TPP before he signs it?

The repubs have been the boy that cried wolf so long they have no credibility when they attack Clinton on these various and nefarious claims they make. Those that buy into it will continue to do so, those that don’t won’t buy into it no matter what Trump says. Attacking her only makes her attacks seem reasonable, meanwhile we don’t hear the issues only the exaggerated charges from both sides.

Trump was the best the repubs had to offer this time around. I would like to see him actually make a change as he claims he will so often. I would like to see him start with running on his merits and his plans for the future. Make the campaign about issues not cheap shots at the other side.

Enough is enough. Put up or shut up.

Drumpf has nothing to say but nonsense, yet we have to hear it on the news because a major party nominated the idiot. He’s well known as a con-man. Now he’s trying to deflect attention from his own very real legal problems by getting the legitimate news media to broadcast the bile that Rupert Murdoch’s toads rant about every day. The best thing that could come out of this year is the death of the GOP. The Libertarians should replace them, but where would the right wing religious fanatics go?

Define “best” j2t2? Trump was the best non-politician but he was hardly the best republican, the best politician, or the best conservative. In a year where a good 30% to 40% of the party voted for “anybody but them” he won against the likes of Fiorina and Carson. Ted tried to play the “outsider” card but that’s hard to do when you are a sitting Senator.

I worked the 2010 Governor’s race here in SC and the same pool of voters fed up with “RINO’s” gave us the sorry Governor that we have now. To those voters it doesn’t matter who the candidate is or what the candidate says. They just want someone who is not them. That’s the problem with voters who vote against something instead of for something; they end up supporting a candidate that is worse than the what they have now.

Rocky both Hillary and Bill are dirty. You can deny that all you want but it’s true. No there will probably never be in convictions as they have built quite a wall around “Clintonworld” but Bill and Hillary have leveraged their political positions for personal gain to the tune of over $100 million dollars in net worth. I’m good with that are you?

“Rocky both Hillary and Bill are dirty. You can deny that all you want but it’s true.”

Where’s the proof? No, seriously, you just can’t march out some charge like that and assume anyone with an IQ above room temperature is going to accept it at face value.

“No there will probably never be in convictions as they have built quite a wall around “Clintonworld”…”

There will never be any convictions because there is no proof of the charges.

None, zip, zero, nadda, zilch… ya got nothing.

“…but Bill and Hillary have leveraged their political positions for personal gain to the tune of over $100 million dollars in net worth. I’m good with that are you?”

Frankly, as long as they have paid their taxes and can prove it it’s none of my business how much money they make.

Look I could give a rat’s behind whether Hilary goes down in flames or gets elected. I truly don’t care.

But…

If Trump get’s elected we might as well kiss our collective asses and call it Christmas.

Sorry Rocky…Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch have been so successful in court that you must discount him. Please Rocky, don’t watch…it may just inform you and then you could write lies about it.

The Failure of Liberalism

Modern American liberalism is:

The (mistaken) belief that the restriction of Individual Liberty and private property rights can improve society through government efforts to design and manage economic and social structures.

The (mistaken) belief that a mob of men can better manage society than core values that protect the individual and his property and enforcement of laws that ensure equal protection of citizens while limiting government and allowing individuals to protect themselves.

The (mistaken) belief that social safety nets imposed on the populace are more compassionate than allowing the individual freedom to fail (or succeed) from one’s life decisions.

The (mistaken) belief that involuntary re-distribution of wealth is moral.

Classical (Jeffersonian) Liberalism (Which is modern conservatism) is a belief in the superiority of the American core values:

Individual Liberty
The right to self protection
The protection of private property rights
Equal protection under the law
Limited government (Self reliance)

Political correctness achieves the opposite of its intent-

Redistribution of wealth fails to achieve economic equality and prosperity-

Multiculturalism inflames cultural jealousies and bias instead of erasing them

Centrally planned economies fail more people than they help

When liberalism restricts Individual liberty it causes more discontent than the absence of “promised benefits “

Private property rights protect the environment better than big government

Capitalism causes more wealth than big government

Equal protection under the law is impossible under liberalism

Liberalism cannot protect citizens while appeasing the enemies of the culture

The “safety net “ has no protection from wasteful politicians and will go bankrupt financially while simultaneously promoting a culture of dependence

The liberal war on poverty has failed miserably

In debt is no way to raise a responsible population

Apparently Rocky has little regard for the FOIA. I consider it an extremely important tool to keep our public servants honest with the threat of having their dishonest and/or criminal actions being publicly exposed.

I disagree with Rocky and believe the American people have an absolute right to know what those in high office are up to in their official role.

Unlike Rocky, I believe all public officials serve at the pleasure of the American people and their public actions must be open for public review.

“Hillary Clinton was hoping that EmailGate was behind her, but thanks to a court order, she will soon have to answer questions under oath about why she set up a private, unsecure email server in her home during her four years as secretary of state. A federal judge ruled on Friday that Clinton will have to submit written answers under oath and within 30 days to questions by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that is playing out in Washington, D.C.’s U.S. District Court.”

Sorry, my statement while offensive, is no more true than Royal’s, yet the public doesn’t know that, and Royal’s supposition is just more baloney.

Accusing the right or the left of anything these days is big business. We never have to prove anything, all we have to do is post it on the internet.

The point is that FOIA has now ground to a halt under siege from Judicial Watch. Their requests have to take priority, you see.
And after all this is an election year.

Oh, and my other point…

The reason I have stood up for Hilary is only because my contempt for her is only slightly less than my contempt for Trump.

IMO, the current problematic GOP candidate, Nixon Litewait Drumpf, could not have been prevented from getting the nomination by the poorly educated unless there was someone else with a more famous name running against him. Maybe Honey Boo Boo’s dad or another structured reality star could have defeated him, but I doubt it.

The current GOP trend should have been stopped in its tracks in 1968 by arresting Nixon for treason, as he so richly deserved for telling Hanoi to wait until after the election to get a better deal. Same for Reagan’s advisors and Iran. Two GOP Presidents guilty of provable treason and the right wing complains about HRC45 because of their own guilt. I didn’t say guilty consciences since they all believe that the end justifies the means, and have no consciences. Manafort should be arrested at least, but I don’t think any POTUS wants to set a precedent like that.

The most recent poll is 52 to 42, but I disbelieve both of those 2s. Drumpf’s ceiling is 40 and HRC45’s appears to be 50. The rest will go to other parties and other individuals, so its a good opportunity for the Libertarians at least. If it was Weld/Johnson instead of Johnson/Weld, they might have gotten to the 15% needed for the debates, if there are any.

Democrat Woodrow Wilson, 28th president of the United States served two terms in the White House as a leader of the Progressive movement, and a racist.

The editorial board of the New York Times wrote, regarding Princeton University honoring Wilson with his name on buildings; “The overwhelming weight of the evidence argues for rescinding the honor that the university bestowed decades ago on an unrepentant racist.”

Sure hope my Liberal Pals can tell us about more leading Democrats and their publicly expressed racism.

Define “best” j2t2? Trump was the best non-politician but he was hardly the best republican, the best politician, or the best conservative.

Trump was the best republican candidate for president because he spoke to issues that the rest of the candidates didn’t. By default Trump was the best overall candidate available to the people of the RNC. Yes not the best repub, not the best politician, nor the best conservative but overall the best republican at getting his message out, a message the people liked. The rest of the bunch choked on their ideology.

The rest of the candidates had plenty of chances to fix things as they were politicians yet they were/are do nothing politicians. The lot of them failed their people the past 6 years. They instead chose to talk about non-issues. The lot had no new ideas or plans to get people working at better wages, instead repeating the “if we cut taxes on the rich jobs will come” line that is what their billionaire donors demand of them.

Rubio and Cruz were foolish enough to try to beat Trump at his game, they lost, looked foolish and exposed themselves as hack politicians. Jeb and Kasich were seen as losers because they couldn’t get past the Trump rhetoric, and of course the Bush legacy was hung around Jebs neck.

SO IMHO Trump was the best candidate they, as in they the registered repubs, had to chose from. While it may come as a shock to some, Trump best represents what people perceive the repub party to be. A rich guy, on his third wife, saying anything to sell you his self serving ideology. Trump was the only candidate charismatic enough to pull it off.

It appears that Royal has eaten the monkey brains.

About his Klan association Robert Byrd wrote;

“It has emerged throughout my life to haunt and embarrass me and has taught me in a very graphic way what one major mistake can do to one’s life, career, and reputation. “

What’s your excuse Royal?

Or perhaps this Royal;

http://www.newsweek.com/new-york-republicans-vote-read-449301

“No history of modern conservatism I’m aware of finds much significance in the 22,000 Nazi sympathizers who rallied for Hitler at Madison Square Garden in February 1939, presided over by a giant banner of General George Washington that stretched almost all the way to the second deck, capped off by a menacing eagle insignia.

Nor the now-infamous Ku Klux Klan march through the streets of Queens in 1927, when The New York Times reported “1,000 Klansmen and 100 policemen staged a free-for-all,” in which according to one contemporary news report all the individuals arrested were wearing Klan attire, and that one of those arrestees was Donald Trump’s own father.”

Racism of any stripe should not be tolerated.

That said Hilary Clinton has done as much or more to help the poor and yes black population of this planet than nearly anyone else.

Rocky, line up behind Warren for the racism brainwashing.

Only whites are capable of racism.

Bill and Hillary had racist mentors and still carry the stripes despite the political necessity of disavowal.

Royal,

So what you’re saying is that;

Only whites republicans are capable of racism truth.

You’re a bully Royal. A mean spirited, ill tempered, bully.

As soon as the discussion starts to go away from you, out comes the name calling.

Racism is on both side of the political spectrum and to deny that it is not in ones party is foolish to say the least. We have had racist talk from Presidents on down.

Thank you Rich…you get it.

Rocky and Warren are simply in denial. Notice how Rocky changes the subject to “truth” and calls me a bully.

Listen to some of our black politicians and notables. Do you ever hear racism? Of course we do. Need I link to some?

Royal,

Do you even bother to read other people’s posts any more or just what fits into your pigeon holes.

Seriously, is there a point that you might actually see where someone agreed with you before you go off on your rant, or is that just such a foreign concept to you anymore?

Clinton’s lead over Trump shrinks by 7 points in 3 days

“NEW YORK, Aug 26 (Reuters) - U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton leads her Republican rival Donald Trump by 5 percentage points among likely voters, down from a peak this month of 12 points, according to the Reuters/Ipsos daily tracking poll released on Friday.”

From JFK’s Inaugural Address

“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

This much we pledge—and more.

To those old allies whose cultural and spiritual origins we share, we pledge the loyalty of faithful friends. United there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided there is little we can do—for we dare not meet a powerful challenge at odds and split asunder.”

How exactly does this fit in with the Trump rhetoric?

Royal,

“Well Rocky, I quote from them…does that help?”

I guess I should have asked if you actually pay attention. I agreed with you.

Note to self…

When agreeing with Royal, if you’re not a republican, realize that he could give a rat’s ass if you agree with him or not.

I voted for John Kennedy; Rocky. I certainly recall his wonderful words you quote as I heard them when he first uttered them. He stood for freedom and liberty unlike the Democrat Party of today. He stood for unity of the American people unlike the Democrat Party of today.

I don’t understand the link to Trump.

Rocky you are mistaken. I am not a Republican as I have written many times.

I am a Constitutional Conservative attempting to preserve our Democratic Republic.

Royal,

“Rocky you are mistaken. I am not a Republican as I have written many times.”

Ah, so you have. I have written many times that I am an independent, I vote for whomever I believe can do the job, yet, it seems, that fact never seems to sink in does it.

Oh, and the connection with Trump?

Where exactly in those lines does Kennedy request payment from our allies for our support? Where does he suggest blackmail for our continued protection?

Rocky poses a silly comparison with JFK’s Inaugural Address and Trump on the Stump.

If and when Trump gives his inaugural address Rocky, I believe it will be more lofty than his stump talk.

Will Hillary, if elected, give part of her inaugural address in mock Southern Black-speak? “I ain’t no-wise tired…”

This old trick of citing conservative Democrats who are long dead and liberal Rockefeller Republicans who are turning in their graves at the current state of their party was debunked a long time ago. Posted by: Warren Porter at August 26, 2016 3:14 PM

Anyone who lived through the whole era from Everett Dirksen to Barrack Obama knows exactly what happened. The current right wingers rely on people who have come to an agreement that everyone was born yesterday. IIRC, in the 1920s the only black member of the USHOR was a Rpblcn from Chicago. In the 1930s black democrats were elected in various northern cities. In the 1940s the re-alignment was barely starting. In the 1950s, Congress was filling up with WW2 vets who had more in common with each other than with the older members of their parties. In the 1960s, the change started in earnest. Democrats in the south who aligned with Johnson started losing to Rpblcns who were said to be “business oriented”. In the 1970s they began to be replaced by other New Rpblcns who were not as “business oriented”, just segregation oriented. If you don’t know the rest of the story, then you were born yesterday.

I remember the old TV show “Rocky and Bullwinkle”. I believe there was a segment called…”Fractured Fairy-tales”. That would well describe orao’s political history presentation directly above.

Instead of refuting what oraoghaile wrote, you lampoon it by resorting to childish name calling.

GROW UP. What you are doing is pathetic.
