Trump: Not With A Whimper But A Bang

From our American friend John Gilmore:

Two days ago the American presidential race was entirely upended when the FBI announced out of the blue that it had found additional, pertinent emails that was causing it to reopen its investigation of Hillary Clinton and her patently criminal email arrangement. The media panic was immediate, enormous and widespread. I almost succumbed to terminal schadenfreude. Absolutely no one in the nation saw this coming. The shock was total and complete

In the last hours the criminal enterprise known as The Clintons fought back as best they know how: by lying and deflection. First, Lady Macbeth said in her very brief appearance before the media Friday evening (she read a prepared statement, took 3 questions and alighted for the territories) that the Director of the FBI only sent his letter to republicans in Congress. This was demonstrably false as anyone with an internet connection could see.

=====================================================================

The damage is done, in my opinion, and Donald Trump is on course to be elected president. I thought this before the FBI announcement and it manifestly seems more likely to be the case now.

=====================================================================

Next the campaign ginned up it’s prime talking point: the FBI had acted in an unprecedented way, injecting itself into a presidential race a mere eleven days before the election. Hillary demanded it release all newly discovered emails because transparency is important to her. If a nation can laugh, in this instance it did.

The damage is done, in my opinion, and Donald Trump is on course to be elected president. I thought this before the FBI announcement and it manifestly seems more likely to be the case now.

Polls, those orchestrated, mostly dishonest tools with which the corrupt media attempts to shape opinion, advance narratives and suppress republican enthusiasm, were already tightening. The American people have grown tired of this kabuki theater.

Early voting, by which the democrats hector their base which cannot be depended upon to show up on a day certain to lock in their ballots, has not gone well for Mrs. Clinton. To take but one state, Virginia, early voting totals among blacks is disastrous, with totals lower from 2012 anywhere from 30 to 70%. She’s likely to still win the state but if this is indicative of other areas in which she needs blacks and hispanics, a win is lost to her.

=====================================================================

In these radically changed circumstances it’s hard for me to see America voting in four or eight years of corruption and scandal. We may finally be experiencing Clinton fatigue on a wide enough scale to dispatch these odious creatures to the history bin.

=====================================================================

Trump, by contrast, is doing very well in my neighboring state of Wisconsin, so much so that Planet Hillary was forced to buy airtime on television. This isn’t how her supposed landslide was supposed to come about.

In Pennsylvania Trump is behind by a meaningless three percentage points.

Monday Trump travels to Michigan where his America First and jobs restoration policies have rung many bells. There are eight days left and every bit of momentum is on Trump’s side.

In these radically changed circumstances it’s hard for me to see America voting in four or eight years of corruption and scandal. We may finally be experiencing Clinton fatigue on a wide enough scale to dispatch these odious creatures to the history bin.

One underreported aspect of the FBI development is bringing home to Trump reluctant republicans whose elite leadership has done little to support. If possible, an already stark choice became starker. Taking a flyer on Trump now seems much less risky than the guarantee of ensconcing Third World corruption in the White House.

I’m not predicting a landslide, I word I’ve always avoided, although now it is more probable than ever before. I am, however, predicting a Trump presidency.

Reality check: Perhaps our American friend will add a postscript, explaining why the FBI dared do this? Do they not know what they face if Hill wins?

How many Americans really care about corruption? Little guy Americans who pay taxes and can’t store their wealth out of reach, yes they do care.

But an American dropped from the tax rolls has zero incentive to care about waste or corruption as long as he gets his own pogey, dole, or disability pension. He doesn’t suddenly become a bad person, of course. No, I am merely describing what his dependency means, what it is. It is a loss of citizenship without a loss of passport.

A loss of adulthood, really.

A Trump presidency would give at least some traditional Americans four years to shore up defences against the rising tide of progressivism. They know best what defences they will need locally.

Here too: Just recently, a Canadian teacher was complaining to me that a socialist provincial government had suddenly yanked her school’s charter licence for no known reason. I said, fine, I will try to help but did any parent in your group, doubtless high on flapdoodle, vote for any progressive? If so, let us not waste each other’s time. At this point, we can only help people who can be helped. And even then it won’t be easy.
