THE MAP ABOVE SHOWS WHERE THE HAZARDS AHEAD LIE FOR TRUMP AS SEVERAL STATES NEVER SUPPORTED HIM, BUT THE DELEGATES FROM THOSE STATES WERE UNABLE TO "DUMP TRUMP".
IT'S OFFICIAL, TRUMP IS THE GOP NOMINEE.
LET US MARK THIS DAY AND COME BACK IN A YEAR TO SEE WHO'S CRYING THEN AFTER THEY VOTED FOR TRUMP, THOUGH FEW CAN SEE HOW HE CAN WIN WITH SO MANY IN HIS PARTY DISGUSTED WITH HIM AND PLANNING TO VOTE FOR A "THIRD-PARTY" CANDIDATE.
POOR DONALD TRUMP.
BEING A MILLIONAIRE (THERE IS A DISPUTE THAT HE IS A BILLIONAIRE) DOES NOT WIN FRIENDS, OR VOTES, AND NOW 60% OF THE DELEGATES TO THE GOP CONVENTION WHICH OPENED YESTERDAY WERE CALLING FOR RULE CHANGES SO THEY CAN "DUMP TRUMP" AND CHOOSE ANOTHER CANDIDATE.
TONIGHT, AFTER SO MANY HAVE BOWED OUT OF OFFERING ANY SUPPORT TO TRUMP, HIS TEAM HAS SCRAPED UP A REAL "D-LIST" OF SPEAKERS, HIGHLIGHTING ...A PRO-GOLFER... AND NOT MUCH ELSE.
WHY A GOLFER?
Maybe because of Trump's golf course where he plans to be BURIED?
FROM THE "D LIST" OF SPEAKERS WAS ONE WOMAN TOUTED AS A SMALL BUSINESS OWNER WHO "EMPLOYS 100,000 WORKERS".... BUT MICHELLE VAN ETTEN STATED TO THE MEDIA SHE HAD NO IDEA WHO CAME UP WITH THAT AS SHE SELLS HEALTH PRODUCTS ONLINE AND HAS NO PHYSICAL OFFICE EVEN.
THE EXTENT OF UNNECESSARY LIES POOR OLD TRUMP HAS TOLD BOGGLES THE MIND.
ONE NEWS MEDIA ACTUALLY POSTED THE "101 LIES DONALD TRUMP HAS TOLD".... BUT WHO'S COUNTING, RIGHT?
"When Politico attempted to measure how many lies Trump told over the course of 4.6 hours of speeches, they found that he lied, on average, once every five minutes. When Huffington Post catalogued his lies over the course of just one town hall event, they came up with 71 lies.
TRUMP STATED, March 8: “Upstate New York I poll higher than anybody ever.”
WRONG! Hillary Clinton would slaughter Trump 56 percent to 33 percent in upstate New York, according to a Siena College poll, so add New York to that map at the top of the blog.
February 29, after his Nevada win: Trump brags that he is “number one with Hispanics.” Except 93 percent of the Latinos in Nevada did not support Trump. A Washington Post-Univision poll in February found that 80% of registered Hispanic voters viewed Trump unfavorably.
On "Trump University's" rating, again, Trump lied.
February 28: "We (Trump University) have an ‘A’ from the Better Business Bureau."
In reality, BBB received multiple consumer complaints about Trump university, which sank to a D-minus in 2010. The reason Trump University rose to an A in July 2014 was that as the company looked to be closing after 2013, no new complaints were reported.
Complaints over three years old automatically rolled off of the business review, according to BBB policy.
Further, Trump University was never been a BBB-accredited business.
THERE IS CURRENTLY A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST THE "UNIVERSITY" AND EX-EMPLOYEES HAVE LED THE PACK.
"Former employees complained of unethical sales techniques, unqualified instructors and widely unsatisfied students."
DESPITE TRUMP'S BRAGGING ABOUT HIS "INCREDIBLE WEALTH", SOME CLOSE TO HIM AND ON HIS TEAM HAVE REVEALED THE CAMPAIGN IS...BROKE!
HE WILL HAVE TO LEAN HEAVILY ON FUNDING BY THE PARTY ITSELF TO BATTLE CLINTON.
IT WAS ALMOST PATHETIC TO WATCH SO MANY TURN AGAINST HIM SO OPENLY.
THE REPUBLICAN JUNIOR U.S. SENATOR FROM UTAH, MIKE LEE, WAS AMONG THE MOST VOCAL ON THE STAGE CALLING FOR A ROLL CALL VOTE TO TRY TO OUST TRUMP.
THE COLORADO AND WASHINGTON STATE DELEGATIONS WALKED OUT, AS DID OTHERS, AND THE GOVERNOR OF OHIO, WHERE THE CONVENTION IS BEING HELD, CHOSE NOT TO ATTEND.
NEITHER PAST PRESIDENT BUSH ATTENDED, JEB BUSH HAD ALREADY LEFT THE PARTY MONTHS AGO AND DADDY BUSH AND JUNIOR WERE THREATENING TO DO THE SAME.
MARCO RUBIO WAS A NO-SHOW AND PAUL RYAN WAS THERE "ONLY BECAUSE HE HAS TO BE" AS SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE.
JOHN BOEHNER WAS NOT EVEN THINKING OF ATTENDING, NOR WAS MITT ROMNEY OR JOHN MCCAIN.
AND, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, SOME DELEGATES DIDN'T EVEN SHOW UP.
NEITHER DID HIS DAUGHTER'S RABBI, WHO HAD BEEN SCHEDULED TO APPEAR AT THE OPENING CEREMONIES.
THE LIST OF NO-SHOWS AND MISSING IN ACTION, BIG NAME REPUBLICANS IS GROWING.
Kendal Unruh, a conservative Colorado Delegate and Rules Committee member, is founder of "Free the Delegates".
Working with Mike Lee, Kendal and other conservatives presented several amendments based on Republican principles to the GOP Rules Committee, including her conscience amendment, that would express the right of delegates to vote their consciences at the convention.
All were defeated at the committee meeting, in a proceeding marked by questionable rules of order and arbitrary vote counts.
Ms. Unruh leads a coalition of Republicans who reject Donald Trump as the GOP standard bearer. The reasons go beyond inexperience and ill-advised statements.
The high profile cadre of white nationalists and neo-Nazis supporting [Trump] is ominous.
Persistent reports of threats to delegates and others dog the candidate. All of this should make voters question just what sort of man they are being asked to vote for. It should make the GOP question the man it’s embracing.
But it doesn’t.
LAST NIGHT, TRUMP'S WIFE DELIVERED HER SPEECH AND MANY NOTICED RIGHT AWAY THAT SEVERAL SENTENCES WERE COMPLETELY TAKEN FROM MICHELLE OBAMA'S SPEECH IN 2008.
PLAGIARISM HAS BEEN A PROBLEM IN BOTH PARTIES BEFORE WITH EVEN JOE BIDEN GETTING BUSTED FOR DOING THAT.
BUT EVEN WITH SIDE-BY-SIDE COMPARISONS OF THE TWO LADIES' SPEECHES, MOST IN THE TRUMP CAMP STILL VEHEMENTLY DENIED THE PLAGIARISM BY MELANIA TRUMP.
TRUMP ALSO PULLED OFF GETTING THE NOMINATION WITHOUT REVEALING HIS INCOME, HIS TAX RETURNS, SOMETHING MANY SAID HE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO HIDE, BUT, SO FAR, SO GOOD FOR TRUMP.
MAYBE LATER THE LIES HE'S TOLD ABOUT HIS "INCREDIBLE INCOME" WILL ALSO COME TO LIGHT AND HIS 'ADVISERS' HAVE WRNED HIM IT WILL NOT BE GOOD IF THE TAX RETURNS ARE 'LEAKED' TO THE PRESS AFTER HE SAID THEY ARE NOT AVAILABLE.
IT WON'T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE TO ANY TRUMP SUPPORTER, JUST LIKE NOTHING REVEALED ABOUT HILLARY WOULD CHANGE HER FLOCK'S MINDS.
THE SHEEP ALWAYS FOLLOW THEIR 'JUDAS GOATS' ALL THE WAY.
It's all so strange this election because American voters REALLY don't like their choices.
A new Washington Post/ABC News poll, for example, finds 58% of voters are dissatisfied with the choice between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Among those surveyed, 64% had an unfavorable view of Trump, while 54% felt unfavorably toward Clinton.
A new NBC News/Wall St. Journal survey offered a similar verdict: Trump was viewed favorably by 27% of those surveyed and unfavorably by 60%. That net negative rating of -33 points is the worst in the history of the poll.
But Clinton's image is only somewhat better: 34% positive, 56% negative.
Among registered voters who said they backed Trump, fewer than 4 in 10 in the ABC/Washington Post poll said they did so mainly because they supported him. The majority, 57%, said they mostly opposed Clinton.
On the other side, the picture is only slightly more optimistic: 44% who mainly supported Clinton, 54% who mostly opposed Trump.
As for who is winning, the new surveys all show a very close race: The NBC/Wall St. Journal poll has Clinton ahead 46%-41%. The Washington Post/ABC poll has her leading 47%-43%. Both leads are within the surveys' margins of error.
Our own (LOS ANGELES TIMES) USC Dornsife/L.A. Times Daybreak poll, which tracks voter preferences daily, now has the two effectively tied, Trump 42%, Clinton 41%. The small lead that Trump had in the poll last week appears to have dwindled."
TRUMP WILL NEED MEGA-BUCKS CONTRIBUTIONS TO EVEN DREAM OF DEFEATING CLINTON.
BUT MANY COMPANIES HAVE TURNED AWAY FROM THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN.
AMONG THE COMPANIES WHO HAVE STOPPED FUNDING TRUMP....
The list of companies that aren’t sponsoring at all includes NBCUniversal, Macy’s, NASCAR, Serta, ESPN, the PGA of America, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, United Parcel Service, Motorola, Apple, Univision, and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc.
Apple specifically referred to his statements about immigrants, people of color, and women as the reason for not sponsoring the convention.
NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump,” the company said.
The company who manufacture's Trump's clothing line has backed off.
On July 7, PVH Corp, which manufactures Trump's clothing line for Macy's, said it will begin to wind down the brand, Forbes reports.
Even New York City, where the Trump Organization is based, is beginning to question its relationship with Trump.“We are reviewing Trump contracts with the City," Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement on July 1. "Donald Trump’s remarks were disgusting and offensive, and this hateful language has no place in our city.
Coca-Cola has declined to match the $660,000 it provided to the Republican convention in 2012.
CAN THE DONALD FIND OTHERS TO FUND HIS FIGHT WITH HILLARY CLINTON?
The Federal Aviation Administration
The FAA announced Thursday July 9 it was renaming three Donald Trump
related flight coordinates - UFIRD (you're fired), DONLD and TRMMP -
that are above Palm Beach International Airport. “In general, the FAA
chooses names that are non-controversial and relate to the area in which
the fixes are located,” the FAA told ABC News.
DESPITE WHAT WE'VE BEEN TOLD, TRUMP IS RUNNING OUT OF MONEY.
HE'LL HAVE TO DO BETTER IF HE HOPES TO BUY THAT OVAL OFFICE.
PLEASE, BE AWARE, WORLD, MANY OF US HERE IN THE U.S. DON'T WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH EITHER PARTY.
SOME OF US DON'T EVEN SEE THE NEED FOR A CONGRESS OR A PRESIDENT.
WE'RE FED UP WITH THE LIES AND THE BOTTOMLESS PROPAGANDA, SAME AS THE REST OF YOU.
WE KNOW OUR VOTES DON'T REALLY COUNT, THAT THE DAMNABLE "ELECTORAL COLLEGE" WILL, ONCE AGAIN, AS IT HAS FOR OVER 200 YEARS, CHOOSE THE "WINNER".
WHAT WE WON'T KNOW, UNTIL LATER IN TIME, IS WHO HAS BOUGHT THE PRESIDENTIAL OVAL OFFICE THIS YEAR FOR WHICHEVER "NOMINEE" IS SLATED FOR THE "WIN".
WE SEEM TO BE IN A PATTERN OF 8 YEARS FOR A DEMOCRAT, THEN 8 YEARS FOR A REPUBLICAN, THEN 8 MORE FOR ANOTHER DEMOCRAT, ETC, BUT WHO KNOWS IF THE PATTERN WILL HOLD.
NO MATTER WHO GETS THE CALL, THE POOR, DUMBED-DOWN MASSES WILL ONCE AGAIN BLAME THE FAILURE OF "THEIR" NEWLY 'ELECTED' PREZ ON THE OTHER PARTY, AND AS OUR ECONOMY CONTINUES TO TANK, AS SOCIAL CHAOS GROWS, EACH "PARTY" WILL LOUDLY BLAME "THE OTHER SIDE" AND THEN, IN 2020, WE'LL REPEAT THE PROCESS AGAIN, IF THE NATION KNOWN AS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA STILL EXISTS....MANY OF US HAVE OUR DOUBTS THAT IT CAN HOLD UP ANOTHER 4 YEARS.
LET AMERICAN VOTERS BE YOUR NEW DEFINITION OF INSANITY, PEOPLE OF PLANET EARTH.
