I was struck reading the observation that it was on THIS DAY in 1944 that Ann Frank wrote the last entry in her diary. I remember visiting the “Ann Frank house” in Amsterdam a few years ago now. Moving. She was a remarkable soul.

Ah, the blessed Michelle. She’s a lady and beyond criticism. Right?


Michelle Obama laid into Donald Trump for his lewd locker room remarks about women as follows: “I can’t stop thinking about this. It has shaken me to my core in a way I could not have predicted” — whereupon the White House warned Trump to not retaliate against the First Lady.

As you can read in the above link her hypocrisy on the issue is cosmic.

And the punchline?

The phrase, “Right message, wrong messenger” applies perfectly here. While Donald Trump’s previous statements were crude, coarse, and lewd, nobody who promotes and mainstreams misogyny, subservience of women, and date rape has the moral standing to condemn them.

Michelle Obama’s words also come across as an obviously partisan attack noting her total silence on Bill Clinton’s misogyny and sexual exploitation of women, as well as Hillary Clinton’s complicity in the same.

Michelle Obama is a hypocrite but the mainstream fan club masquerading as the 4th estate refuse to expose it.

Reading Is Fundamental.

One of our regulars reminded me that the ATW community is often a source for good book ideas, and therefore I thought I would throw out a couple and hope to read of a few suggestions from others.  The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown is heartbreaking, exhilarating, and wonderful history.  It is the story of an Olympic rowing team back in the days of the Great Depression, and the journalistic skill in getting the facts is matched by the beauty of the writing.  What are you reading?

When the shouting dies down after the election, even Trump supporters will have to note that their Narcissus not only fell in love with his own reflection in the lake, but that he fell in and drowned.  Trump’s Nemesis was himself.  He ultimately could not resist talking about himself, in the boastful graceless manner of the spoiled rich who inherit money but no morals.  He could not resist himself, elevating spats over past oafish behavior over real world issues.  His legendary thin skin prevented him from focusing the voters attention on gifts in any other year:  a deeply flawed opponent, an incumbent’s signature domestic program unraveling, and a world that is a dangerous place.  A man of such poor character that he couldn’t even try to conceal it, but flaunted it instead.

I am led to believe that this leaflet has been going door to door in parts of Manchester, England. I cannot verify it for certain but there is a social media page for this organisation suggesting this may be the case. I don’t mean to be harsh but I would prefer Dogs to the sort of people who promulgate this.

Pithy. Now if Trump were to say that about her it would be ignored. I think allowing a Sexual Predator to live under your roof falls into the “can’t run your own house” camp –  Michelle certainly did.

Classic stuff here.

Those waking up to read the news this morning will undoubtedly be “shocked” by the latest ABC / Washington Post goal seeking report (aka “poll”) that shows Hillary opening up a 12-point lead with likely voters after the latest debate last Wednesday. Ironically, this latest polling farce was “embargoed for release after 9 a.m.” EST which will certainly make it a dominant topic of conversation on all the morning talk shows.

Of course, like many of the recent polls from the likes of Reuters, ABC and The Washington Post, something curious emerges when you look just beneath the surface of the headline 12-point lead.

 “METHODOLOGY – This ABC News poll was conducted by landline and cellular telephone Oct. 20-22, 2016, in English and Spanish, among a random national sample of 874 likely voters. Results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points, including the design effect. Partisan divisions are 36-27-31 percent, Democrats – Republicans – Independents.”

As we’ve pointed out numerous times in the past, in response to Reuters’ efforts to “tweak” their polls, per the The Pew Research Center, at least since 1992, democrats have never enjoyed a 9-point registration gap despite the folks at ABC and The Washington Post somehow convincing themselves it was a reasonable margin.

This is how the Clinton campaign rolls. It is lies built on subterfuge – and then repeated by their media presstitutes. Happily, this is now exposed.

Ever wonder what you have to do to get an invite to the White House? Then consider what you have to do to get 342 visits. Meet Robert Creamer – he’s the one caught on a hidden-camera video discussing ways to commit large-scale voter fraud, and talking in another about paying liberal activists to start fights and otherwise disrupt Donald Trump rallies.

Democracy Partners, the community organizing firm that until Tuesday employed Creamer, works hand-in-hand with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

And people whinge when Trump claims this campaign is being rigged? One wonders EXACTLY what was being discussed during those hundreds of visits to the White House. You will recall that Obama promised us he would raise the White House to a new ethical standard.

I was a fan of The Smiths back in the day – I always thought Hang the DJ was useful instruction. That said, I rarely agree with their former lead singer Morrissey’s political views – until now. Here he is talking about BREXIT.

“The British political class has never quite been so hopeless, but the same can be said for the USA. What has happened is that news media can no longer attach any nobility to old-style politics because although politicians do not and cannot change, the people the world over have changed. What could be more grotesquely stupid than the Clinton-Trump coverage? As for Brexit, the result was magnificent, but it is not accepted by the BBC or Sky News because they object to a public that cannot be hypnotised by BBC or Sky nonsense. These news teams are exactly the same as Fox and CNN in that they all depend on public stupidity in order to create their own myth of reality. Watch them at your peril!”

This is my point too. The old media is hopeless everywhere. It’s stronghold is loosening and that’s a great thing as it means people are exposed to points of views (like mine!) that are all too often hushed up / blanked out on the MSM.
