Yet, the Establishment Cartel of Washington D.C. stubbornly refused to listen, and to this day, they still are not listening. And, make no mistake, the Cartel still believes they are the power that runs this country---not the American Voter.
This is about to change.
Despite the efforts of the GOPe, aka, the Republican Establishment, Donald Trump upset one half of the Establishment's apple cart, systematically taking down sixteen formidable Republican candidates---including former Florida governor Jeb Bush, (who collected and threw over a $100 million in negative advertising at Mr. Trump), winning the Republican Primaries in dramatic fashion.
It must be noted that during these Republican primaries, the turnout for the party was up 60% over the 2012 cycle, while it's reported the Democrat Party's turnout was down by 20%. While the naysayers can make the argument that primaries don't reflect general election turnouts, I would argue there is no precedent for this election cycle, given the unpredictable phenomenon of Donald Trump. But let us digress for a moment.
In the "Democratic" primary, the Establishment Democrats---from the start---realized there was only ONE CANDIDATE chosen to represent their Party. In an effort to appear there was a legitimate process, (instead of a coronation), the party allowed a few token candidates to participate, including a devout/professed socialist that turned out to be more than the Establishment Democrats could handle. The NO MORE CLINTONS wing of the Democrat Party had settled on promoting a more left-wing candidate in Bernie Sanders.
But, the fix was in---enter the Super-Delegates, and the Chairperson of the DNC.
What the Establishment wing of the Democrat Party did not expect was that any other token candidate would make a serious run at Hillary. They figured the "Clinton Machinery" alone would take care of business, (without having to risk exposure to the inside fix). The Bernie Sanders supporters, aka, the NO CLINTON folks came out in full force to put the threat in place, i.e. upset the apple cart of the DNC's coronation. Not only did the Super-Delegates take control of the primary, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, (despite the consistent denials), was behind the scenes, insuring Mrs. Clinton come out on top.
Thus, the Democrat Convention/Coronation began with a disgraced dismissal of Wasserman-Shultz, followed by a parade of anti-American values speakers, and then a floor vote that resulted in the Sanders' supporters walking out of the convention---a display of disgust over both the obviously fixed process, and the indignant treatment of Sanders' people. Coronation Complete, but not without considerable damage to the Party.
And, the Mainstream Liberal Media cheered on.
Despite the improprieties of "this Democratic Process", the liberal media completely ignored what had just taken place. Owned, and bound by the DNC Establishment, the MSM "dutifully" played their part in this charade, while pretending/expecting no one would notice. Thanks to the social media, both conservative and liberal---WE NOTICED.
Fast forward to today, there is absolutely nothing Hillary Clinton has to offer the American Electorate. She can't campaign on her accolades, there are none. The old, tired Democrat-playbook is limited and surely predictable. If you, [Mrs. Clinton], have nothing positive to offer the people, then resort to the negative, vitriolic presentation that has worked in the past.
Enter, THE BASKET OF DEPLORABLES. (excuse me for a moment while I tell microsoft office this "word" WILL BE in the dictionary)
After the tumultuous Democrat Convention/Coronation, (and the media's flagrant intolerance of reality), the liberal media and mainstream pollsters desperately needed a narrative to propel their contaminated candidate, so they "weighted" their polls to reflect a tremendous bounce for the next queen of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Reuters News Service in the forefront of the flagrant deception, (and of course, the college polls---all liberal all the time), provided the fodder for the naves to inhale. Low and behold, what a bounce! Hillary had gone from being down 2-3 points nationally to Trump, to embracing a 7-14 point lead. The Media's plan had worked to perfection, a prolific deception that the race was over. Or, was it?
What happened to this insurmountable lead? How could this possibly happen that within virtually three short weeks, (the last two weeks of August and the first week of September), that this Presidential Race is a dead heat? Where did Mrs. Clinton's fabricated lead, and more importantly, what can she do now?
I know. Let's call half of Trump's supporters a basket of deplorables.
Remember, the woman that recently said:
“If Donald Trump can’t show all Americans the respect they deserve, he doesn’t deserve to be President”.
“The last thing we need is a president who brings more name-calling and temper tantrums to Washington.”
now calls Trump supporters deplorable, among other things:
"To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables," Clinton said. "Right? Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it."
She added, "And unfortunately, there are people like that and he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people, now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric."
Clinton then said some of these people were "irredeemable" and "not America."Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton, since you didn't get, (or deleted), the memo of the people's request for no more Bush's or Clintons-----you're fired!
