The ProblemDonald Trump must overcome formidable barriers to win the presidency.1 the mass media propaganda for Hillary and the liberal agenda2 the mass media suppression of any news harmful to that agenda3 the apathy and ignorance of most of the electorate4 the more numerous democrat registration 5 the gary Johnson candidacy siphoning off Trump votes6 the videos showing awful Trump insults7 voter fraud8 the enormous advantage Hillary has in campaign funds
It is ironic that in a year where the democrats have nominated Hillary Clinton, an unlikable candidate with more negatives than any previous democrat nominee, the Republicans have managed to nominate the only GOP candidate with even more negatives than Hillary!  Yet another example of the GOP genius for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
 Can Donald Trump still win?  Yes. He has taken a key step to confront #6, the awful insults.“Sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that. And believe it or not, I regret it. And I do regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain.” Mr. Trump sounded sincere when he made that apology.  He needs to repeat it as the occasion presents itself. People will forgive a penitent. But the other barriers remain. With the man staying on message,  I believe they can be overcome by a pervasive and persuasive ad campaign. N.B. Have you noticed, since polls began showing Trump gaining on HIllary, the Mass Media has gone into frenzy, suppressing all Trump gains, stridently claiming a Hillary landslide. What the Mass Media is trying to sell: “You Republicans and Independents don’t need to vote. Just move along, folks, nothing to see here!” Something has them worried. Pervasive and  Persuasive Ad Campaign  There are reasons why Hillary Clinton is so disliked. And there are reasons why we must say ‘no more’ to what democrat policies have brought us. The task is to get those reasons into the minds of the electorate by blasting through the Mass Media propaganda.  Here are 9 such ads. The FBI investigation.  Hillary is the only candidate in the history of the Republic  proven to be a repetitive liar in a public announcement by the director of the FBI. The ad can be quickly prepared. There is a video of less than 2 minutes which juxtaposes claims Hillary made with facts refuting her claims presented  by FBI Director James Comey. Director Comey: “Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” [use video] [Emphasis added.] The Black VoteThe Left is on the wrong side of key issues for the black community. Black conservatives have written and/or spoken cogently on those issues including abortion’s effect on the family, school vouchers, unemployment rate, same sex marriage, and the impact of welfare. Eloquent statements on those subjects by black conservatives are found at ARCHIVE Issue 8: BLACK VOTES MATTER A 15 – 30 min video for BET of black conservatives should be produced, constructed so it can be broken into smaller segments for use as stand-alone ads. Potential participants range from senior statesman Thomas Sowell to hip-hop Alfonzo Rachel and include Star Parker, Walter Williams, Jason Riley, Armstrong Williams, Harry Jackson, Lurita Doan, Demetrius Minor, Crystal Wright, Allen West, Charles Payne, Stacy Washington, Kevin Jackson, et al. [They present images in sharp and wonderful contrast to Al Sharpton, Sheila Lee Jackson, Maxine Waters et al.] This is the only group that can show Pelosi’s daughter’s devastating 2012 video of welfare cheats without being called racist. The video has been pulled from many sites but was here earlier this month: These folks can say, and have said, “Look what we have let them do to us.” Walter Williams has pointed out:Liberals desperately need blacks. If the Democratic Party lost just 30 percent of the black vote, it would mean the end of the liberal agenda. That means blacks must be kept in a perpetual state of grievance in order to keep them as a one-party people in a two-party system. When black Americans finally realize how much liberals have used them, I’m betting they will be the nation’s most conservative people. Who else has been harmed as much by liberalism’s vision and agenda?  Even a 10% reduction could be significant in this election. This message must be aired. A  similar ad could be prepared for Hispanic voters whose positions on these issues are generally conservative.  Religious liberties

If Hillary wins, she gets her 5th liberal Supreme Court Justice and  she will not have to worry about votes in the legislature. The Court will “enact’ the lib agenda. [ARCHIVE ISSUE 2]

And Hillary has made plain what she intends with religious liberties.

“Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will.  And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” [Emphasis added.]


People whose religious principles forbid such conduct will be forced to fund abortions and to sanction same sex marriages. If they do not, they will be subject to civil and criminal  penalties, with their churches/synagogues losing their tax exempt status.

Make no mistake about it. Hillary believes in an all powerful government – one which even can demand that parents must accept men entering their daughters’ locker rooms.   Economics[Female and Male narrators alternating dialogue.]Are you better off now…” Ronald Reagan asked that question when running for the presidency against Jimmy Carter. Then the words were “Are you better off now than you were 4 years ago.”Who would have believed that we would have a president worse than Jimmy Carter and we would  reelect him? Today the question is “Are we better off now than we were 10 years ago.” Why 10 years?  Because that is when the Democrats took control of Congress. They were, and still are,  so bent on blaming everything on George W. Bush that they start with 2008 . And with a good reason – to hide the facts. Before the democrats took over the budget in January 2007, we had 52 straight months of job growth; unemployment was at 4.6%.  Democrats Barney Frankand Chris Dodd respectively took over the House Financial Services Committee and the Senate Banking Committee. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? Banking and financial services! Today we are told unemployment is at 4.9%. That is not true.Mark Twain noted: “There are lies, damn lies and statistics.” The Administration’s rate does not include ‘missing workers,’ those who are neither employed nor actively seeking work; they have given up.  Well over 2,000,000 people are not counted by this Administration because to do so make the unemployment rate  6.2% The labor force participation rate, is 62.8 percent. We have to go back to Jimmy Carter to find rates that low. 

Do not have the 2007 figures but in 2008, fewer than 30 million people used food stamps. Now 46 million do.   When he was in the Senate, Barack Obama voted for every spending bill and, as President he has brought spending the highest percentage of GDP since WWII. And debt?“President Obama has added more to the federal debt in less than 8 years than his 43 predecessors combined did over 218 years.”    [also in September press release] Under Obama, for the 1st time in history our credit rating was downgraded. When Barack Obama ran in 2012, he said thisIf you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things. And you know what? It’s worked before… Obviously,he thinks that will still work. Although he has a record to run from rather than on,  he wants his “legacy” continued. Ramirez’ great summary drawing. Do we really want more of this?If so, Hillary will give it to us. A few days ago,  “…the president said for the second time in two weeks that his legacy is “on the ballot” this year, telling radio host Steve Harvey that voters are voting for or against him, whether they know it or not. “The notion somehow that, ‘Well, you know, I’m not as inspired because Barack and Michelle, they’re not on the ballot this time and, you know, maybe we kinda take it easy’ — my legacy’s on the ballot,” Obama said, repeating the phrase twice. He also said back on Sept. 17: “My name may not be on the ballot, but our progress is on the ballot.” On one point, he is correct:President Obama has made it clear to voters: If you don’t want Donald Trump as president, choose Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton instead. “If you don’t vote, that’s a vote for Trump,” Obama stressed, . “If you vote for a third-party candidate who’s got no chance to win, that’s a vote for Trump.” We agree.[display Trump/Pence logo]  The Selling of the State Department, Clinton Foundation, Access, Fraud and WorseThe Clinton Foundation is knee deep in scandal including selling access to the State Department.Revelations of improprieties are reported daily. AccessEmails obtained by ABC news revealed that big donors  to the Clinton foundation had their access to officialsfacilitate while Hillary  was in office. The  emails, obtained as a result of a lawsuit by a conservative group  and shared with ABC demonstrate that foundation allies received special treatment [read a sample few] Emails between Hillary’s  close aide  Huma Abedin and a top foundation official suggest names for State Department lunch with the Chinese president.  The names included 3 executives of organizations which donated millions to the Clinton Foundation; included were Bob McCann, president of wealth management at UBS; Dr. Judith Rodin, the president of the Rockefeller Foundation; and Hikmet Ersek, the CEO of Western Union. Will  it be proven that favors were obtained? Probably not. The claim can be made that whatever action occurred would have happened on its merits. But can we trust that explanation when we see the appearance of impropriety? Clinton defenders claim  this is a small proportion of the total number of people with business at State.No one questions there must be meetings  with officials from foreign countries. The issue is the smaller private sector groups who want meeting time with people of influence via the State Department; the significant percentage of those  are Clinton foundation donors. State spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau told  ABC News: “The State Department does not believe it is inappropriate for the administration to consider individuals suggested by outside organizations when deciding who to invite to an official function.”  Notice she avoided  the salient fact that here the outside organization happens to be managed by Hillary, the Secretary of State, and her husband. FraudThe “Big Four” accounting firm Pricewaterhouse Coopers failed to detect and report the Clinton Foundation’s “apparent massive diversions of funds” from a global charity. Respected Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel concluded after a thorough investigation of the Clinton Foundation’s financial records that Pricewaterhouse Coopers, or PWC, either intentionally or through negligence, participated in generating audit financial reports containing errors and misstatements. Ortel contends PWC, which began auditing the Clinton Foundation in 2013, allowed the Clintons to continue diverting millions of dollars donated for charitable purposes to the personal enrichment and benefit of themselves and their close associates. WND reported that  tens of millions of dollars annually appeared to have been taken from funds the Clinton Foundation received from a United Nations-sponsored program that uses levies on airline tickets to help HIV/AIDs victims in the Third World; that $566 million UNITAID sent the Clinton Foundation, was in excess of what the foundation declared  and were diverted to personal use Of course, the Mass Media  minimizes  the importance of the disclosures. Were you aware that the Clinton Foundation has now made several “revisions” to its tax returns and financial records?Particularly troubling are the dealings with foreign nations  being hidden. The  Daily Caller News Foundation learned that Clinton Foundation officials used an obscure New York state charity board filing to disclose that the non-profit received nearly $17.7 million in donations from foreign governments while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state., The specific foreign governments were not identified in the document, entitled “Exhibit A.” The latest filing was submitted last January before the public charity division operated by New York Attorney General Eric Schneidermann, a democrat. The money was given between 2010 and 2013, the exact years when Clinton was America’s chief diplomat.The January filings also were unusual in that the latest submission now constituted a third “official” revised version of the Clinton Foundation’s financial statements for the foundation’s activities while Clinton was in public office. WorseAccording to an International Business Times analysis of State Department  and foundation data, under Clinton’s leadership, the State Department approved $165 billion worth of commercial arms sales to 20 nations whose governments have given money to the Clinton Foundation. That figure — derived from the three full fiscal years of Clinton’s term as Secretary of State (from October 2010 to September 2012) — represented nearly double the value of American arms sales made to the those countries and approved by the State Department during the same period of President George W. Bush’s second term. The Clinton-led State Department also authorized $151 billion of separate Pentagon-brokered deals for 16 of the countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation, resulting in a 143 percent increase in completed sales to those nations over the same time frame during the Bush administration.  American defense contractors also donated to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State and, in some cases,  made personal payments to Bill Clinton for speaking engagements. Such firms and their subsidiaries were listed as contractors in $163 billion worth of Pentagon-negotiated deals that were authorized by the Clinton State Department between 2009 and 2012. In all, governments and corporations involved in the arms deals approved by Clinton’s State Department have delivered between $54 million and $141 million to the Clinton Foundation as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments to the Clinton family. The Clinton Foundation publishes only a rough range of individual contributors’ donations, making a more precise accounting impossible. Of 20 nations that donated to the Foundation, 17 had more robust weapons transactions in the three fiscal years that State was led by Hillary than in the last three years of the previous administration.   Guess whatIn August, Bill Clinton announced  that the Clinton Foundation will end its practice of accepting foreign and corporate donations, this after the Boston Globe editorial board called on the Clintons to “shutter the nonprofit if Hillary Clinton is elected”. That raises at least a more than 64 million dollar question: since it is conceded that the Clinton Foundation’s involvement would be wrong  if Hillary were president, why was it not wrong  when she was Secretary of State?  Hillary, Money, George Soros and the ConsequencesHillary’s campaign including its affiliated groups have an overwhelming financial advantage over Trump’s campaign. George Soros looms large. Already by the end of June, with more than 4 months to go until the election, Soros had donated $7,000,000 to Clinton PAC Priorities USA action, more than he’s given to any other recipient in this cycle. And he is still not through. Soros has committed $5,000,000 to Immigrant Voters PAC to increase turnout among Hispanic voters in key states and another $5,000,000 to the Voting Rights Trust, a nonprofit devoted to fighting conservative efforts to reduce voter fraud. Involved in the Trust management is a  Clinton campaign lawyer.  The Trust is registered under a section of the tax code which does not require donor disclosure so Soros’ donations will never be publicly reported.   Soros has also given to $2 million dollars to American Bridge 21st Century, a research PAC targeting Trump and Republicans, and an additional $700,000 to various Democratic committees and PACs including Clinton’s campaign. more to Soros than this electionGeorge Soros, one of the richest men in the world is indefatigable in supporting entities of the Left promoting leftist causes including: Alliance for Justice characterizing GOP judicial nominees as extreme right-wingers; The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy claiming  the Constitution is a living document so its original meaning should be disregarded; Catholics for Choice, [actually a non-Catholic organization] advocating  abortion; Project Vote associated with ACORN; The Urban Institute Think Tanks favoring socialized medicine, expanded federal bureaucracy and higher taxes; NARAL and numerous abortion advocacy groups; the ACLU; Planned Parenthood; The Brennan Center for Justice to restore voting rights to felons as research demonstrates that ex-felons are likely to vote democrat; The Immigrant Legal Resource Center part of the sanctuary movement to shield illegal aliens; The Alliance for Climate Protection….  Well, you get the idea. There is more effort to suppress conservative speechIn the United StatesSoros, upset that TV political advertising could overcome the print media, was key in  finance campaign reform based upon paid-for contrived research. The stated purpose was to put restrictions on paid advertising during the crucial weeks prior to the election.  Private organizations including unions corporations, and citizen groups were prevented from advertising for or against any candidate for federal office on television or radio during 60 days preceding an election but major media networks were exempted. Talk about putting your thumb on the scales! Soros funded advocating left-wing candidates and causes; when Air America failed to succeed as a liberal talk radio, Soros came to its aid but could not overcome public rejection of the show. The Washington TImes reported Soros’ Open Society Foundations,  2014 gave at least $33 million to support  groups that supported activists in Ferguson” to helped lead the anti-police protests.  Soros continues to try to limit any speech that does not promote the Left.On August 29, 2016, the The Daily Caller reported: “An internal proposed strategy from George Soros’s Open Society Justice Initiative calls for international regulation of private actors’ decisions on ‘what information is taken off the Internet and what may remain.” The proposal cited by The Daily Caller was part of a 34-page document titled “2014 Proposed strategy,” w, “The Open Society Justice Initiative uses law to protect and empower people around the world, supporting the values and work of the Open Society Foundations.” hich spelled out the Initiative’s goals for 2014-17. And more Soros on the International stageSoros praised the Arab Spring movement even after it was discovered that the events were not spontaneous movements by oppressed people, but rather the product of the Muslim Brotherhood ideologically aligned with Al Qaeda and Hamas and driven to establish a worldwide Islamic caliphate to be ruled by Sharia, In October 2015—while hundreds of thousands of Middle Easterners were flooding into Europe as “refugees”—Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban warned that this mass influx of foreign Muslims was endangering Europe and cited Soros: “This invasion is driven, on the one hand, by people smugglers, and on the other by those (human rights) activists who support everything that weakens the nation-state,” …“This Western mindset and this activist network is perhaps best represented by George Soros.” Soros’s Open Society Foundations (OSF) funds anti-Israel and pro-Islamist organizations.  Confidential memos revealed in 2016 that a grant had been awarded to the Center for American Progress (CAP)to track and disparage groups which point out the grave threat to America by radical Islam. George Soros influences Hillary Clinton. WikiLeaks revealed an email regarding Albania in which Soros tells Clinton  “two things need to be done urgently.” And then directs our Secretary of State to “bring the full weight of the international community to bear on Prime Minister Berisha” and “appoint a senior European official as mediator.”  Soros provided Hillary 3 names. She chose one recommended by Soros. Hillary’s Horrendous Performance as Secretary of State[Female narrator]Secretary of State is the most important post Hillary has ever held and  her performance was catastrophic.We have observed repeated policy failures, all too many of them disastrous. Hillary had us intervene in Libya, a country not then hostile to our interests, taking no account  of what would follow. Terrorist chaos did. The American ambassador and 3 other  brave Americans  were murdered in  Benghazi . And she did nothing but lie and try to cover up. More intervention in Egypt,  again without consideration of the consequences. A country favorable to us was taken over by extremists  who aligned Egypt  with our enemies, persecuting Christians, and threatening Israel. That has been corrected not by our State Department but by the Egyptian military which deposed the extremists. Then there was the famous ‘re-set’ with Russia which failed miserably, beginning with the Obama administration reneging on our defense commitment to supply defensive technology to Poland and the Czech Republic, leaving them vulnerable  to Russian threats and pressures. Recently Putin suspended a plutonium disposal deal between the United States and Russia. Putin  cited “unfriendly” relations from the United States as reason for Russia’s withdrawal from the deal. Both Hillary  and the president opposed the military surge  in Iraq which succeeded. Then the Administration claimed Iraq was stable and withdrew our troops  More chaos followed, leading to the rise of ISIS sponsoring terrorists attacks in our own country.    We were snookered by Iran, allowing it to develop its nuclear program  without adequate inspection  requirements, releasing funds to enable the mullahs to support terrorists groups throughout the Middle East and handicapping Israel in its efforts to survive the repeated threats to its existence, Syria, China and North Korea are other scenes of similar setbacks.  In sum, our foreign policy during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state was to undermine our friends and cater to our enemies. Does anyone believe that the world still respects America? Thomas Sowell has noted:The fact that many people are still prepared to vote for Hillary Clinton to be the first woman president of the United States, in times made incredibly dangerous by the foreign-policy disasters on her watch as secretary of state, raises painful questions about this country. A president of the United States — any president — has the lives of more than 300 million Americans in his or her hands, and the future of Western civilization. If the debacles and disasters of the Obama administration have still not demonstrated the irresponsibility of choosing a president on the basis of demographic characteristics, it is hard to imagine what could. With our enemies around the world arming while we are disarming, such self-indulgent choices for president can leave our children and grandchildren a future that will be grim, if not catastrophic. BenghaziA FEMALE should do the NARRATION in a matter of fact documentary style with supporting pics/videos shown as she says something along the following lines: On the night of September 11, 2012 and continuing into September 12, American embassy compounds in Benghazi, Libya were attacked and 4 Americans murdered: Ambassador Chris Stevens, Diplomat Sean Smith, and two former Navy SEALs, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.”  [show pictures] 5 days earlier President Obama had declared:‘Al-Qa’ida is on the path to defeat:’  

Immediately after the attack, the President and the Hillary Clinton blamed it on a video critical of Islam. Clinton said, ‘We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with’.”  [

 On September 14, at a ceremony over the coffins of the dead, Hillary Clinton spoke with family members of those slain. Tyrone Woods’ father reported that she told him, ‘We are going to have the filmmaker arrested who was responsible for the death of your son.’”  

 Sean Smith’s mother, “She said it was because of the video.” 

 Glen Doherty’s sister said Clinton chose ‘in that moment to basically perpetuate what she knew was untrue’.” 

 That same day, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney insisted, ‘These protests were in reaction to a video. We have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack.’”  

 The next day, Susan Rice, our ambassador to the United Nations, after a White House briefing, on five Sunday interview programs, blamed the attacks on the video. THOSE STATEMENTS WERE LIES.   HILLARY CLINTON LIED. The country eventually found out that at 11:12 PM, September 11, 2012, Hillary sent an email to her daughter, Chelsea, that reads: ‘Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an al Qaeda-like group.’: [picture of email] On the morning of September 12, Hillary told an Egyptian diplomat, ‘We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack — not a protest’.”  [picture of notes obtained by Judicial Watch, if available] When these facts came to light, Clinton stated she never told Benghazi victims’ families that an anti-Muslim video had sparked the deadly attacks. A columnist said:‘Somebody is lying,’ and asked her ‘Who is it?Hillary responded ‘Not me, that’s all I can tell you'”

 Tyrone Woods’ father challenged her to take a lie detector test; she never respondedWe are left with her words: With all due respect, the fact is, we had four dead Americans! Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they’d go kill some Americans?! What difference, at this point, does it make? 

Emphasis added.]  Female Narrator in disbelieving tone: “Guys out for a walk…” ???? What difference… does it make?!” Then Female Narrator concludes as Hillary pic remains on screen: Hillary, you lied to the nation, you lied to the families and then, when you got caught, you called them liars. Hillary, it does make a difference. It tells us about YOU. “ Hillary pic is then replaced inch by inch with TRUMP PENCE Logo filling the screen. [SOURCES] Abortion This proposed ad is set forth at ARCHIVE ISSUE #4 . It contains pictures demonstrating the barbarity of abortion procedures,  destroying  forever the democrats’ claim that they are compassionate. This is one of those images Seeing the reality of abortion changes minds.


Consider having multiple Trump ads end with the pic of Hillary and her voice screeching:

“What difference, at this point, does it make?”

while the screen displays the following:




Recently, a friend told me that she thought Hillary should not be president, but she could not vote for Trump; she was going to vote for Evan McMullen.

I reminded her that I had taught negotiation for 17 years and practiced it for more than 50. The key concept that must be kept in mind is always to measure a course of action by one’s alternatives. If one is deciding whether to do action X, one should consider the likely alternative to that action.

I told my friend that a vote for McMullen, or for Johnson, or an abstention in the selection was equivalent to a vote for Hillary and, if others acted in like manner, assured Hillary of the presidency.

She should measure whether a vote for Trump is a better alternative.

We discussed the defining issue in this election:  the new president would be appointing a Supreme Court justice to fill the seat vacant because of the tragic loss of Antonin Scalia.

Donald Trump has pledged that the seat will be filled by a jurist who respects the Constitution. He has listed people that he believes would meet that standard. My research has indicated that his choices are wise.

Hillary has guaranteed that she will fill that seat with yet another liberal judge, one who,  as condition for his/her appointment, will have committed to preserve Roe v.Wade and Doe v. Bolton  and will vote with the 4 democrat appointees now on the Court. 

The result will be that Hillary and the democrats will never have to worry about obtaining votes in the legislature.  The Court will “enact” the liberal agenda and that will spell the end to what remains of the Constitution. There will be no going back in our lifetime.

Donald Trump, warts and all, offers the only lifeline for our Republica Supreme Court  which will honor  and preserve our Constitutional rights.

Can he blast through the barriers set forth above?

I believe he can, if he will mount kind of campaign suggested here.  If you agree, please pass this on to your families, your friends and associates, particularly should they have any connection  with Mr. Trump’s team.

This is the last best chance  for our country.  2020 will be too late. 

  This is the issue …. whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capitol can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.
