Let’s start with the budget proposal – $3.6 Trillion in Cuts. The response has of course been shock and outrage from the establishment.

To give an example of what the Trump administration is going after, here is a list of 11 unauthorized programs being eliminated. Most expired years ago but kept getting funded.

So what did the bureaucrats in the EPA do when the Trump budget proposed cutting their budget by 36%? They started putting aside money for buyouts!

An Obama Holdover went even further:

The Daily Caller News Foundation obtained emails that show Chemical Safety Board (CSB) member Rick Engler worked with union activists to promote a grassroots campaign to keep the agency from losing its funding.

President Donald Trump’s “skinny” budget, released in March, called for eliminating the CSB, which began operating in 1998. Engler and labor union activists quickly worked to try and protect the board’s nearly $12 million budget.

Engler’s emails further raise concerns about the CSB’s impartiality. E&E News obtained emails in September, which showed Engler working with the Steelworkers union to push new regulations for refineries in California.

If you read the article – it gets worse:

In recent years, the board has become more controversial.

Former CSB Chairman Rafael Moure-Eraso resigned in 2015 amid accusations of mismanagement and mistreatment of whistleblowers.

House lawmakers called for Moure-Eraso’s resignation in 2015 after evidence surfaced that he and two other officials used private email accounts to conduct official business. The White House forced Moure-Eraso to resign.

His successor, Vanessa Allen Sutherland, “implemented initiatives to improve employee morale by creating an environment to encourage open communication,” the EPA’s inspector general found in 2016, though more work was needed to be done.

Engler’s email scandal, exposing his coordination with activists, only added to CSB’s controversial standing. Some say the board has become a tool of labor unions to scrutinize industry.

Concerns mounted after E&E News obtained emails that called into question Engler’s relationship with the United Steelworkers union. Experts said the email likely violated federal law.

In a February 2016 email, Engler told California regulators he was “working with the United Steelworkers and some allied environmental organizations” to “encourage further public support for the California refinery safety reforms, which is consistent with the CSB’s support for this initiative.”

E&E News also obtained emails showing how Engler worked with union officials to derail the nomination of a CSB rival.

Remember when Donald Trump fired a corrupt VA official? He filed an appeal with some garbage board set up for Public employees, AND IS STILL ON THE JOB!

A notoriously corrupt Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) manager fired in the first day of President Donald Trump’s presidency — to rousing acclaim from veterans who heralded it as a sign of lasting reform — has been returned to work by VA officials after he filed a civil-service protections appeal.

The return of the Puerto Rico hospital director is the latest example of Trump’s reform efforts encountering the entrenchment of what he has called Washington’s swamp, and comes in the same month a court ruled that the VA may not even be able to fire the Phoenix hospital director, who is a convicted felon as a result of job-related misconduct.

“On the morning of January 20, 2017, the Department removed DeWayne Hamlin, the director of the VA Caribbean Healthcare System, from the federal civil service. Mr. Hamlin subsequently appealed his removal to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), and because of particulars in his case that remains under active litigation, he was brought back to work at VA,” spokesman James Hutton told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“As we have underscored since January 20, President Trump and Secretary [David] Shulkin have made employee accountability at VA a top priority, and we will continue to take appropriate disciplinary actions with our employees. The Secretary in this case was not able to overturn this decision once he was made aware of it. We need this ability in new legislation.”

An Obama Appointee resigned in some sort of Faux Outrage over reforms being implemented by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. Then the other shoe dropped:

James Runcie, an Obama administration appointee who served as chief operating officer of the Federal Student Aid office, received secret, five-figure bonuses each year while his office gave out billions in improper payments, Judicial Watch reported, citing sources inside the Education Department.

While Runcie ran the FSA, the government’s $1.4 trillion financial aid program, the office made improper payments for the federal Pell Grant program, which ballooned from $562 million in 2015 to $2.21 billion in 2016, and for the Federal Direct Loan program, which increased from $1.28 billion in 2015 to $3.86 billion in 2016.

A government source told Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, that Runcie’s personnel file showed a total of $432,885 in bonuses over a seven-year period, culminating in a $76,000 bonus in 2016. The bonuses do not appear on Runcie’s official government salaries.

Runcie resigned last month after DeVos asked him to testify before Congress on the rising rate of improper payments in student aid, BuzzFeedreported. The resignation came the day before DeVos was set to testify about President Trump’s proposed federal budget.

“I cannot in good conscience continue to be accountable as chief operating officer given the risk associated with the current environment at the [Education] Department,” Runcie wrote in his resignation memo.

When Donald Trump Talked about Draining the Swamp, few knew what would start popping out.

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released 2,078 pages of documents revealing more instances of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sending and receiving classified information via an unsecured email server. They also show Clinton’s daughter Chelsea and others involved with the Clinton Foundation receiving special favors from Huma Abedin, the former secretary’s deputy chief of staff.

The records were obtained in response to a court order from a May 5, 2015, lawsuit filed against the State Department (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)) after it failed to respond to a March 18, 2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking: “All emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-‘state.gov’ email address.”

The new documents included 115 Clinton email exchanges not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 432 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department. These records further appear to contradict statements by Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department.

In May 2010, Ben Ringel, whose donations to the Clinton Foundation Judicial Watch previously documented, asked Abedin to intervene in an employment dispute on behalf of a USAID employee. Abedin agreed, telling Ringel to forward the woman’s documents to her official State Department email account.

In a May 21, 2011, email exchange sent to Abedin’s unsecure account, then- Ambassador Princeton Lyman sent information relating to his conversation with South Sudan President Salva Kiir Mayardit that is also redacted and classified as “Confidential.”

On July 17, 2012, Abedin forwarded to her private email account for printing a call briefing sheet for Clinton’s upcoming call with Joint Special Envoy Kofi Annan, which was classified Confidential and redacted under FOIA exemption B1.4(D).

You getting a flavor for this? Let’s bring in Townhall to connect more dots:

“The new Abedin emails also reveal additional instances in which Clinton’s then- scheduler Lona Valmoro forwarded the former secretary of state’s detailed daily schedule to top Clinton Foundation officials. The new emails also reveal a number of favors that were requested and carried out,” Judicial Watch found. “In May 2010, Abedin tells Band that she has ‘hooked up’ people from the Russian American Foundation with ‘the right people’ at the State Department after Abedin received a request from Russian American Foundation Vice President Rina Kirshner, forwarded by Clinton Foundation donor Eddie Trump (no relation to President Trump).”

I am starting to wonder if Trump is sitting on his hands because he knew this kind of stuff was out there.

Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose office equipment U.S. Capitol Police seized in a criminal investigation into congressional network security violations, admitted she violates official information security policy and blamed the House’s chief administrative officer for not stopping her.

In a May 17 appropriations hearing on Congress’ administrative budget, Wasserman Shultz said she had violated the policies “for years and years and years.” She also sought to find out how much House authorities might know about her internet usage, asking “Are members monitored?”

Police are investigating Wasserman Schultz’s longtime information technology (IT) aide Imran Awan for theft and funneling congressional data from members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Committee on Homeland Security and Committee on Foreign Affairs.

Yet Wasserman Schultz lashed out at investigators and changed Awan’s title to “adviser” instead of firing him after House authorities banned him from the network. She resigned as Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman in July 2016 after unidentified hackers accessed the DNC’s emails, which Wikileaks later published.

What is it about Democrats and security protocol? Wasserman Schultz admitted violations and then blamed staff for not stopping her! (I guess Clinton is not unique)

This is rich, folks:

The staffers fled to Pakistan, and God only knows how much classified info they took with them.

Election Fraud does not exist they say.

This is of course why they sue every time a state takes measures to try and clean up their voter rolls. The state of Ohio finds itself in the Supreme Court over democrat lawsuits.

The commonwealth of Virginia has booted 5,556 self-reported non-citizens off the voter rolls since 2011, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) announced Monday.

Based on information gathered from three lawsuits, multiple record requests and reviews of voter history files across 133 Virginia jurisdictions, the group says that 1,852 non-citizens cast 7,474 votes before being booted from the rolls.

Voting integrity groups have been fighting a 15 round knockdown dragout fight with Clinton Acolyte and Former DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe the current governor of Virginia. McAuliffe pardoned thousands of felons specifically to allow them to vote for Clinton in the 2016 election.

Since 2015, McAuliffe has vetoed eight bills passed by the Virginia legislature to strengthen election integrity.

He vetoed legislation requiring voter registrars to examine potential registration system failures if their rolls surpass local citizen voting age population numbers. McAuliffe also vetoed a bill requiring registrars to compare new voter applications against state and federal databases.

McAuliffe vetoed a bill that would criminalize paying people to register to vote and vetoed another bill that would requires electronic poll books to include a photo of the voter.

The Virginia Democrat also rejected voter ID for those casting absentee ballots, and he panned a bill that would have brought voter identification initiative into the absentee balloting system.

Read more from the Daily Caller here.

Terry McAuliffe has provided leadership for the national democrats who are mobilizing to fight any and all attempts to maintain election integrity. The dems are going to fight Donald Trump’s election integrity commission.

This grotesquely biased USA Today Story reveals the agenda of the left near the end of the story. Run to the courts to gut voter integrity laws and to re-draw districts, because apparently they can’t win elections without courts overriding the will of the people (or current law).

This update is actually as of 5/20 as the news comes like a firehose. Despite the media’s obsession with trying to take trump down with leaks, anonymous sources and the same impeachment talk that they ran against Both Bush’s and Reagan – a lot is going on!

Economic News:

The US Senate is Seriously Looking at Tax Reform that Lasts Longer than 10 Years.

House Ways and Means Chairman tells CNBC that they are hard at work on a tax reform plan.

The Treasury Secretary and National Economic Director met with the US Senate regarding tax reform.

Bottom line – tax reform is coming.

How about economic news? The economy is starting to recover for real:

ON 5/15 the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ hit record highs.

The Wall Street Journal is projecting 3.1% GDP in the Second Quarter. 3.1% would be the largest quarter in a long time.

Continuing a trend, the unemployment rate (and underemployment rate) hit their lowest level in 28 years.

Since May, the claims for unemployment benefits are down to the lowest level in 28 years, the Department of Labor reported Thursday, according to the Washington Examiner.

Federal reporting shows that the number of unemployed workers is now at 19 million, the lowest since March 1998 when the U.S. workforce was much smaller.

Furthermore, the number of continuing claims are down to 1.95 million, the lowest since 1974.

Fed (Phly-Fed) Manufacturing Index Blew past projections for May.

In related news, the Trump administration announces plans to renegotiate NAFTA. Withdrawing from NAFTA was a major campaign promise, but Mexico and Canada’s Presidents made direct personal requests of Trump for a re-negotiation.

Donald Trump signs massive arms/trade deal with Saudi Arabia. The total value is around $450 Billion and could be way more.

A Bi-Partisan bill called the regulatory reform act is working its’ way through Congress. This will make regulations costing $1 Billion or more be subject to far more scrutiny than current. This would have installed a huge check on some of the worst of the worst from the Obama admin.

As a subset of regulatory reform, the EPA is preparing for massive budget cuts. The EPA was used as a tool of social justice by the Obama Administration. The EPA is setting up funding for buyouts of employees it is expecting to have to terminate.

Lastly, Trump signed HR 66 that eliminated Obama’s last minute edict about State Run Retirement Accounts for Private Sector Workers.

Here is a Social Issue that the Trump Administration took up – they expanded the Mexico City Policy to cover all overseas abortions.

The Trump administration announced a massive expansion Monday of the pro-life Mexico City Policy, issuing guidelines that will strip billions of dollars in aid from international groups that perform or promote abortion.

Originally a ban covering roughly $600 million in family planning money, the Trump policy now applies to all international health care aid doled out by the U.S. government — nearly $9 billion.

Under the Obama administration, violence against police was encouraged. AS a result, it has surged.

The House passed the thin blue line act:

Rep. Vern Buchanan’s (R-FL) Thin Blue Line Act passed the House Thursday by a vote of 271-143. The bill would make the murder or attempted murder of a police officer, firefighter or other first responder an “aggravating” factor in death penalty determinations, Buchanan’s office explained in a press release Thursday.

Donald Trump has made respect and support for law enforcement one of the cornerstones of his domestic agenda.

The FCC has taken the first steps to dismantling Obama’s Net Neutrality Rules. Net Neutrality was basically done in order to allow the government to regulate the internet and thus, shut down Conservative media that is largely on line due to the monopoly on broadcast and print media. This is another campaign promise kept.

On the subject of both immigration and law enforcement, Donald Trump has made it clear to Congress that the border wall is a central part to any law enforcement efforts in government.

“The drug epidemic is poisoning too many American lives, and we’re going to stop it in many different ways. One of them will be the wall,” Mr. Trump said.

Even though illegal immigration across the U.S.-Mexico border appears to be down dramatically under Mr. Trump, the flow of drugs remains high — with heroin and other serious narcotics surging.

In a six week raid, ICE and the FBI picked up 1,378 Gang Members.

IN addition, specific raids were carried out in California to round up MS-13 Gang Leaders indicted back in 2014 (!) that were still at large.

The task force, formed in 2014, targeted 44 individuals associated with MS-13, including 12 senior members of the street gang’s leadership council.

At least 21 suspects were arrested without incident Wednesday morning. Another 20 suspects were transferred from state to federal custody. The remaining three suspects are considered fugitives.

Illegal Immigrant arrests up 38% since Trump’s Inauguration. Other reports show that illegal immigration has dropped 70% since Trump was elected.

Trump, through economic and diplomatic pressure has reduced the number of countries refusing to take deportees from 20 down to 12.

Foreign Policy – showing strength and winning:

Iran diverts their troop movements because of US Military Successes against ISIS. Looks like Iran does not want to mess with the USA. (Probably less so after our massive arms deal with Saudi Arabia)

IRAQ and the US are beginning post ISIS troop strength negotiations! Note, it only took 4 months to get to this point? What was Obama doing?

General Mattis is talking openly about the annihilation of ISIS. What a difference.

So, despite all the obsession over the Russia Did It Lie and the massive leaks from all over everywhere from the bowels of government trying to take Trump down… a lot of stuff is happening still in the blizzard of Trump.

May 212017
 

This is what the modern democrat party has become when they lose an election:

a Huffington Post article that showed “how to really turn up the heat on elected officials” went viral. The author, Michaelangelo Signorile, called on protesters to harass Republicans at dinner, when they’re out shopping and even at home. Societal norms for the basic levels of decency one should afford political opponents, Signorile argued, no longer apply to liberals.

“It’s time to move beyond polite protests within specified boundaries. It’s time to escalate the expression of our outrage and our anger in a massive way,”

The Daily Caller wrote a thorough article about violence against Trump supporters.

Being a Republican in high school or college is increasingly treacherous — and not just at Berkeley.

Shortly before the election, a female high school student was attacked after declaring her support for Trump. A fellow female student took the girl’s glasses off and punched her in the face, saying, “Fuck you, you bitch.”

Olivia Corn, president of Cornell University’s College Republicans, said she was physically assaulted the night after Trump won the election. “Fuck you, racist bitch, you support a racist party,” her attacker reportedly said. Ironically, Corn said she was “not Donald Trump’s biggest fan,” and added that she “was saddened that I was not afforded the same respect that I offer others.”

A Maryland high school student wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat after the election was punched and kicked by students protesting Trump after he started arguing with them.

Similarly, police in Florida arrested a 17-year-old high school student after he punched a classmate for carrying a Trump sign at school.

“It definitely had a political motivation,” said Lt. Mike Bandish of the Palm Bay Police Department. “The boy was carrying a Trump sign and walked into the gym. The other boy punched him in the face.”

A Whitworth professor asked an open-ended question about killing GOP Congress-members. As of today, he still has his job.

The Congressman from North Dakota got physically assaulted. The CNN Reporter that was present seemed to encourage it.

Here is a felony against another congressman:

A woman was been charged with felony reckless endangerment after she allegedly chased Rep. David Kustoff in her car following a town hall meeting at the University of Tennessee’s Martin campus.

Wendi Wright, 35, was arrested and booked Monday after she chased a vehicle occupied by Mr. Kustoff and aide Marianne Dunavant, putting them in “fear of being forced off of the roadway,” the Weakley County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release Thursday.

And lastly – another felony:

The FBI has arrested an Arizona man on suspicion of threatening to shoot Rep. Martha McSally (R., Ariz.) for her congressional votes in support of President Trump.

Tuscon Unified School District employee Steve Martan, 58, was arrested for allegedly threatening to assault and murder McSally in three different, expletive-filled messages left on her congressional office voicemail on May 2 and May 10, the Arizona Daily Starreported Monday.

This is the state of the American Left… to be continued…

May 212017
 
There is a LOT of stuff going on despite the US Media and the democrat party obsession over a false narrative created in July of last year to try and blunt the effect of the revelations about the opposition party.

Let’s Start with a batch of 10 proven conservative Judicial Nominees to Appellate Courts. It is the opinion of this blogger that Donald Trump is “Flooding the Zone” in order to confuse and overwhelm the democrats who are on tilt and running on rage.

Donald Trump issued an executive order creating a commission to review election integrity.

“The Commission will review policies and practices that enhance or undermine the American people’s confidence in the integrity of Federal elections,” an official told The Daily Caller on background. “This will include reviewing laws and activities that lead to improper registrations, improper voting, fraudulent registrations, fraudulent voting, and voting suppression.”

In one of many moves that signal the Trump administration is taking up the cause of Christians as opposed to the Obama admin’s hostility toward Christians, Mike Pence headlined the first ever conference on the defense of Christians.

Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue gives a clear signal that the Western Michigan Beef Company that the Obama USDA persecuted over Pro-Traditional Marriage literature (not even related to the USDA’s purpose for being there to inspect in the first place) is going to get out from under the attacks.

The National Park Service under Obama was discriminating against a prominent Creationist Scientist who is in the middle of a lawsuit against the NPS.

These two cases are emblematic of people that will be positively affected by Donald Trump’s executive order on religious freedom.

One of the most celebrated early successes is the massive reduction in illegal immigration to America. On the heels of some of Trump’s actions is this ICE directive to light up members of Congress that are interfering with them doing their job.

The focus on immigration is finally forcing honest conversation regarding terrorism. AS of 5/9 the House Homeland Security Committee reported that there have been 199 confirmed terrorist attacks and/or plots in the west since 2013.

Along the lines of Make America Safe Again, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has reinstalled teeth to sentencing and prosecution of criminals. Similar to California’s obsession with releasing scum from prison under the auspices of deceptive ballot measures (Prop 47 and 57) is not an original idea as AG Eric Holder, when he was not fomenting riots and violence against police, was gutting sentencing nationally.

ICE Conducted the largest ever operation, arresting 1300 illegal alien gang members.

There has been one setback – John McCain joined two other Republican Senators in voting to uphold an insane Obama-Era Regulation that drives up the price of drilling for oil in the name of methane regulations. However, that setback is likely temporary.

While the congressional effort has failed, Trump’s Interior Department nonetheless could repeal the rule itself though an extensive rulemaking process. A Trump executive order in March instructed Interior and other agencies to roll back Obama’s climate agenda and other regulations that impede the production and use of domestic energy resources. Under that order, Interior is considering whether to repeal the BLM methane rule, but has not committed or proposed to do so yet.

However, a mining project in Alaska held up by the Obama admin (similar to the two major pipelines that are now under construction) is now going to come back to life. This is a clear sign of a radical change in the EPA.

Trump’s trade adviser finally approved 82-14 after 4 months of obstruction. The former Reagan administration alum…

Lighthizer is expected to move quickly to notify Congress of Trump’s intent to reopen NAFTA, kicking off a 90-day consultative period with lawmakers before the talks can begin. That would set up an August start date for the negotiations, for which both Canada and Mexico have been prepared for months. 

The Trump administration has reached an agreement with China to expand trade in 10 sectors by mid-July, including opening up markets for U.S. beef, Chinese poultry and increased access for U.S. financial firms.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said the deal is the initial result of 100 days of ongoing trade talks that began last month when President Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in the U.S.

“This will help us to bring down the deficit for sure,” Mr. Ross told reporters. “This is more than has been done in the whole history of U.S.-China relations on trade.”

The annual U.S. trade deficit with China stands at $347 billion.

Among the 10 areas of agreement, China will allow U.S. imports of beef by July 16, and Washington will issue a proposed rule to allow cooked Chinese poultry into the U.S.

China also has agreed to take steps to allow U.S.-owned electronic payment services to operate in China.

In addition – the unemployment rate is at its’ lowest rate in 10 years and business confidence is soaring. However, you see little if any reporting about this in the American media.

Here is the original story linked here from Expresspros.com.

Among the Unemployed, Clinton Beat Trump 35%-25%; Did Not Vote is 34% (3% Johnson 1% Stein)

39% Say Trump Will Have a Positive Impact Creating Jobs; 35% Say Negative Impact 

58% Say It Would Be Easier to Find Work if there was Less Illegal Immigration

Majority Supports Repeal of Affordable Care Act

By a Small Margin, Preference is for Government Spending over Corporate Tax Cuts

Note the spending versus Tax Cuts Number was 52-48, meaning with education, that number could change easily.

Healthcare, Immigration and Tax Cuts

The unemployed were asked “Are you currently receiving health insurance as a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA also referred to as Obamacare)?”

  • 20 percent said yes
  • 72 percent said no

Jobless Americans were asked to state whether they agree or disagree with various current policy issues:

I am in favor of repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA also referred to as Obamacare).

  • Agree (net): 57 percent
    • Agree completely: 24 percent
    • Agree a lot: 9 percent
    • Agree somewhat: 14 percent
    • Agree a little: 10 percent
  • Do not agree at all: 43 percent

It would be easier to get a job if there was less illegal immigration in the United States.

  • Agree (net): 58 percent
    • Agree completely: 18 percent
    • Agree a lot: 12 percent
    • Agree somewhat: 13 percent
    • Agree a little: 15 percent
  • Do not agree at all: 42 percent

While this poll has mixed numbers from this group in terms of weather they Trust Donald Trump to help them find a job – it shows that they “Get It” about Obamacare and Illegal Immigration and it’s direct effect on their lives.

This is something to think about.

Separately, take a look at this focus group of Pennsylvania Democrats.

CBS’ Face The Nation’s John Dickerson spoke with Pennsylvania voters, where they confirmed what the ABC News/Washington Post polls illuminated a coupled weeks ago: the Democratic Party is out of touch.

One voter, a lifelong Democrat, said that his party is not only out of touch, but they have zero interest in remedying the situation. They complain about how Putin and Wikileaks screwed them over (they didn’t), but added that what’s glossed over is that the Wikileaks document dumps showed how Hillary Clinton and the Democratic establishment were a bunch of liars. That’s really why liberals are upset; their dirty laundry was aired for all to see. Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Clinton’s primary opponent, would probably be the most infuriated, as it confirmed that senior staffers at the Democratic National Committee were actively trying to find ways to undermine the insurgent campaign.

Dickerson asked if there was one story that they’re sick and tired of hearing, which drew a response from a female voter, and it was the allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

“We will go with Russia, okay? Because that was one of the things that is driving me absolutely mad. “I think Russia has already been proven to not have had any impact on our elections, they did not, you know, drive from polling place to polling place and, you know, hoodwink the machines and whatever,” she said. This woman also said that the obsessive nature Democrats have with this story makes them look desperate.

Just over a third of voters, 35 percent, say Trump was right to remove Comey as FBI director this week, the poll shows. But roughly the same share, 33 percent, say Trump should have allowed Comey to continue as FBI director. Another 32 percent said they didn’t know or had no opinion.

Here is the rub – the sample is once again “Registered Voters”. Registered voter polls lean 2-3 points to the left for reasons I have stated many times about the demographics of low propensity voters.

It is Women +7, which may be off about 1-2%, causing a fractional lean to the left as well.

The overall sample is 34% Dem, 31% Republican and 35% Independent. The over-sampling of independents could also cause a skew.

It is my opinion that this poll is fairly legitimate and may have a mild (3-5%) leftist lean.

Overall, 37 percent of voters describe Trump’s decision to remove Comey as “appropriate,” and 34 percent describe it as “inappropriate.” (The difference between these two figures is not statistically significant.) Nearly three-in-10 voters, 29 percent, have no opinion.

The thing I find fascinating is that Trump’s Approval Rating is 45-47. It is my opinion that Trump’s number will be 8-10 points lower than it really is. It is a similar dynamic to the election with “Shy Trump Voters”. I personally have known people that are amongst that group. Remember, the violence and the media cause a lot of people to just tell pollsters what they think they want to hear and then move on.

Also, remember Trump was at 60% disapproval or worse when he got elected. 

May 132017
 

You’d think Quinnipiac – known as the Q-Poll would take a long, hard look at their sampling after 2016. However, it is clear that the Q-Poll has an agenda. This time, it is clear to create a false narrative about Trump and his approval ratings.

The poll claimed that Trump was underwater 36-58. It also claimed that the #1 word most associated with Trump was Idiot.

The Sample? 24% Republican, 34% Democrat, 35% Indie (2-1 Dem Lean), 8% other. Note that “Other” got 5.1% of the vote in 2016. The 2016 result was D +3.6 Turnout.

This sample assumes that less than 1/4 of the electorate is Republican and that the “Other” Category is 60% higher than it was just 6 months ago. By using left-leaning independents, which suggests that this sample would skew the result 12-15 points easily to the left.

Also note, they interviewed voters in Spanish and used REGISTERED voters. When you do Spanish calls and registered voters – both skew results to the left in addition.

Spanish-speaking voters (legal and illegal) favor democrats 8-1.

Registered Voter polls historically lean 2-3 points to the left, as the super low propensity voters tend to be poorer, more likely single and more likely to be on welfare than the rest of the electorate. By using registered voters, you are bringing people that are very unreliable and uninformed in the the polling sample that could also be influenced by the way the questions are asked.

It is my opinion that the motivation for this is to fool democrat donors in to giving money for losing races and an attempt to try to scare Republican donors off. This was consistent in 2016 when the polls were way off on the election.

Here are some examples of how poorly Quinnipiac did in 2016:

Quinnipiac said Donald Trump was going to lose North Carolina and Florida. They missed NC by 5.7 and Florida by 2.2. They underestimated Trump’s win in Ohio by 3.1.

Q-Poll had Clinton winning by as much as 14 in the summer.

Look no further than the democrats chasing an R+20 seat in Kansas. While they caught the feckless (now Congressman) flat-footed, they spent $2 million to lose. They actually believe these biased polls.

The democrats are now in to John Ossoff, a 30 year old staffer that lives with a Woman he is not married to in Georgia, a whopping $22 Million. Take a look at this ad from the Republicans highlighting the millions poured in to him by California donors.

The democrats are pouring money in to Montana. They are claiming that Rob Quist, a cowboy performer in nudist camps is within 6 Points of the Republican candidate to replace now Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke. Montana went for Trump by 20 points and has an at-large congressional district. (MT-AL is what they call it)

The media was bragging that the Omaha Mayor’s Race was going to be a referendum on Donald Trump – similar to all the other elections lost since Trump got inaugurated the Democrats spent a ton of money and lost. The Republican won by 7 points. Clinton won Omaha by 10. NE-02 went for Trump by 3.3 and famously was the first time a state split its’ electors in 2008 when Obama carried it.

Add to this, the democrats went in search of wins in Blue States in state level special elections. There were four failures as of March.

Only one seat has flipped. Won by a Republican.

Actual election results are telling the real story about Donald Trump’s effectiveness and popularity. Remember, the same media that is pushing the Russia did it Lie will carry rigged, fake polls forever.
