2016: THE STATE OF THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE

ROMNEY WORDSWORTH – Wednesday is Trump Day, so let’s review the state of the Primary Race so far.

The RCP Poll Average has Donald Trump maintaining his lead over the GOP field with 23.4%.  Ben Carson is hanging on to second place with 17%, with Carly Fiorina in third place with 11.6 %.  Marco Rubio has moved up to fourth place from his prior obscurity, with a respectable 9.6%, while Jeb Bush fades to fifth place with 9.2%.

The rest of the GOP field follows with Ted Cruz at 6th (6.2%), John Kasich at 7th (3.6%), Chris Christie at 8th (3.4%), Mike Huckabee at 9th (3.2%), and Rand Paul at 10th (2.4%).  The Kiddie Table Candidates (Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal, George Pataki, and Rick Santorum) continue to poll in asterisk territory.

The latest Fox News and Quinnipiac polls show much the same percentages.  CNN’s latest poll shows Carly Fiorina in second place with 15% and Ben Carson at third place with 14%, the other candidates’ percentages being similar to the RCP Average.

The latest ABC/Washington Post Poll has substantially different percentages, showing Donald Trump with a commanding lead of 33%, and Ben Carson at second place at 20%.  Carly Fiorina in this poll only garners a mere 2%, placing her just above Chris Christie (1%) and the Kiddie Table Candidates (*%).  The latest Monmouth Poll has similar percentages.

The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows a different picture, with Trump (21%) and Carson (20%) in a near dead heat, and Fiorina and Rubio tied at third with 11% each.  The latest CBS poll also shows Trump (27%) and Carson (23%) in a close match, with all the other major candidates in single digits.

On the Democrat side of the race, the Clinton Coronation continues to be going off the tracks, with Clinton consistently hovering in the low 40’s in all the latest polls.  Sanders continues with anywhere from 25-35% depending on which poll you look at, and the polling generally shows Joe Biden (not officially in the race yet) at around 20%.  The Democrat Kiddie Table Candidates of O’Malley, Webb, and Chaffee fail to poll over 1%, or don’t even register at all.

It has been said that Republicans fall in line, while Democrats fall in love, with respect to their candidates.  Clearly, emotionalism rules the day in the Democrat Party, so Hillary’s flagging numbers indicate her candidacy is in real trouble.  The only emotion that she raises is Clinton Fatigue, and she is giving speeches to near empty ballrooms.  Compare that to Donald Trump filling stadiums with 20,000 cheering, energized voters.

Speaking of The Donald, Trump recently rolled out his Tax Policy.  I find it to be somewhat conservative, politically speaking, with a flattened rate structure of 10%/15%/20%/25%.  A top rate of 25% is significantly lower than the current top rate of 39.6%.  Trump would also levy NO income tax on single rate payers making $50,000.00 or less, or married couples making $100,000.00 or less.  This will be a tremendous tax break for most of the Middle Class.  Trump plans to balance this by taking away the tax loopholes used by the very wealthy, like eliminating the “transferred interest” deduction used by Hedge Fund managers to pay no income taxes.  While this is not enough to make up for lost revenue under Static Scoring, history shows that lowering tax rates in this way actually increases revenue by reviving a flagging economy.  It worked for John F. Kennedy in the 1960’s and for Ronald Reagan in the 1980’s.  This is called Dynamic Scoring, and it’s more accurate, because it accounts for human nature and tax avoidance.

In contrast, Ben Carson, Rand Paul, and Ted Cruz are all running on a Flat Tax Plan, which is much more politically bold.  Flat Tax plans typically get demagogued by Democrats claiming that they are more regressive on the poor, and they are riskier to sell to voters.  Trump may be demonstrating superior political acumen on this issue, by only proposing a flattening of the rate structure, rather than going all the way to a single flat rate structure.

Meanwhile, world events continue to play into Donald Trump’s hands on the issue of Immigration.  The debacle of the Muslim invasion of Europe, with skyrocketing incidences of rape, crime, and civil disturbances, continues to be an ongoing political ad in support of Trump’s immigration policies.

HERE Is WHAT WILL HAPPEN If The DEEP STATE TAKES DOWN PRESIDENT TRUMP & It’s NOT PRETTY … FOR THEM “The tree of liberty must be refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” – Thomas Jefferson ELDER PATRIOT – Corrupt politicians ignore Jefferson’s directive to their own detriment. It’s no longer political, it’s personal. Americans have had their eyes opened by the ascension of Donald Trump and no amount of leftwing money can put the Freedom Movement genie back in the bottle. Conservative Senator Ted Cruz made that observation after reviewing the results of the 2016 elections and the expectations of the voters. Cruz, who had the most high profile personality clash with Donald Trump during the Republican primary process nevertheless embraced Trump’s America First agenda and said, “If we’re given the White House and both houses of Congress and we don’t deliver, I think there will be pitchforks and torches in the streets. And I think quite rightly.” Candidate Trump promised many things – border control, lower taxes, fairer trade relations, a balanced budget, healthcare that puts the people first not the government, safer communities, and – to the extent possible – an end to foreign wars. What, among those promises, should any Republican, nay any American, have a problem with? After four months without a single legislative achievement, Congressional and Senatorial Republicans – notably John McCain, Paul Ryan and Lindsey Graham – have joined the Democrats in investigating President Trump absent a single shred of evidence that an underlying crime has been committed. So, what gives? Well, there was one additional promise that Trump made on his way to the White House that has some Republicans joining with Democrats and quaking in their boots, Trump’s promise to “Drain the Swamp.” As we reported yesterday, “An F.B.I. agent with ‘intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the Clinton case’ told us that they uncovered evidence of such massive corruption that the agents involved realized that damned near the entire government could be brought down.” The criminal co-conspirators in both parties realized almost immediately that the new sheriff wasn’t interested in joining them in the swamp so they launched, what can only be characterized as, a coup attempt. Democrats are well schooled in such things probably because of their close alliance with Marxist regimes that can only gain power by seizing it through bloody civil wars. It should be noted that the Democratic Party has already done this once before. One Hundred and Fifty-Seven years ago the Democrats waged a war against the First Republican President Abraham Lincoln for giving Blacks their freedom. That war came at a high price, as many as 700,000 Americans died fighting for what they believe in. To put that in perspective, these casualties exceed the nation’s loss in all its other wars, from the Revolution through Vietnam. Today, Americans are still prepared to fight and die to protect their children’s God-given freedoms. Despite what you are reading and hearing in the mainstream media, they aren’t the leftwing-funded rioters, the pussy hat-wearing feminists, or the cuck bois that cant handle a micro aggression. No, the Americans that back Donald Trump are well armed. Donald Trump’s presidency will move forward politically lest the sixty million patriots who voted for him, that are comprised of the large majority of military voters, police, and NRA members, move it forward by force. These patriots are armed, trained, prepared, and have proven their discipline. They have grown disgusted by the corruption in Washington and will do whatever is necessary to make sure Trump’s Freedom Agenda moves forward and under the direction of Donald Trump himself. No amount of fake news based on unsubstantiated charges by unnamed sources is going to change that. The battle lines have been drawn and no amount of finger pointing is going to convince these patriots to let anyone overturn the election results. So why are establishment politicians courting a bloodbath on the streets of America that will also threaten them personally when they could be part of Making America Great Again? It’s because they have been caught red-handed and up to their eyeballs in a worldwide criminal conspiracy that has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with defrauding the American taxpayers. And, now that they’ve been caught robbing the world’s largest bank – the U.S. treasury – they have chosen to go out in a blaze of glory rather than try to defend the indefensible at trial. Washington’s criminal elites have chosen to go to war to unseat our duly elected president. It’s time to make our voices heard before this turns very ugly. Buckle your chin strap, America is counting on you. EDITORS NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CALL TO ARMS BUT RATHER AN ANALYSIS OF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THE DEEP STATES OVERTURNS A DUELY ELECTED PRESIDENT. HERE IS A LIST OF EVERY SINGLE TIME OBAMA COMMITTED AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE THAT DEMS & MEDIA COVERED UP “Impeach!” It’s been more than eight years since Democrats uttered that word – long enough for anyone to wonder if it was still in their vocabulary, considering the deafening silence through the dozens of serious scandals during President Obama’s administration – but now that President Trump is the man in the White House, it’s back with a vengeance. Democrats everywhere are wildly slinging the “I” word, hoping to nail Trump for high crimes and misdemeanors after the New York Times claimed a memo written by former FBI Director James Comey said the president urged him to end the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Some members of Congress are getting in on the action. They include Reps. Maxine Water, D-Calif., and Al Green, D-Texas. Even a Republican, Rep. Justin Amash, claimed Wednesday there are grounds to impeach President Trump. House Oversign Committee Chair Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, asked for the alleged Comey memo and other documents. Chaffetz tweeted that he is prepared to subpoena the information. And Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., invoked “Watergate.” Now the Democratic Party is reportedly poll testing impeachment as a 2018 election issue. More than 1 million people signed a petition calling on Congress to impeach Trump. Wasting no time Wednesday, the mainstream media sprang into action, enthusiastically echoing the left’s impeachment calls. MSNBC launched a Watergate ad implying Trump is America’s new Richard Nixon. “Watergate. We know its name because there were reporters who never stopped asking questions,” says MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who hinted that Trump is next on the impeachment chopping block. “Now, who knows where the questions will take us. But I know this: I’m not going to stop asking them.” Meanwhile, some overzealous members of the left plastered fliers around Washington, D.C., demanding all White House staffers resign Wednesday. The posters read: “If you work for this White House you are complicit in hate-mongering, lies, corrupt taking of Americans’ tax money via self-dealing and emoluments, and quite possibly federal crimes and treason. Also, any wars will be on your soul. … Resign now.” But constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley, who voted for President Obama, warned “impeachment” enthusiasts not to get ahead of themselves with President Trump. Why? At this time, there’s no evidence Trump actually committed a crime. “The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo,” Turley wrote in a May 17 opinion piece posted at the Hill. Turley explained: For the first time, the Comey memo pushes the litany of controversies surrounding Trump into the scope of the United States criminal code. However, if this is food for obstruction of justice, it is still an awfully thin soup. Some commentators seem to be alleging criminal conduct in office or calling for impeachment before Trump completed the words of his inaugural oath of office. Not surprising, within minutes of the New York Times report, the response was a chorus of breathless “gotcha” announcements. But this memo is neither the Pentagon Papers nor the Watergate tapes. Indeed, it raises as many questions for Comey as it does Trump in terms of the alleged underlying conduct. A good place to start would be with the federal law, specifically 18 U.S.C. 1503. The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo. There are dozens of different variations of obstruction charges ranging from threatening witnesses to influencing jurors. None would fit this case. That leaves the omnibus provision on attempts to interfere with the “due administration of justice.” However, that still leaves the need to show that the effort was to influence “corruptly” when Trump could say that he did little but express concern for a longtime associate. The term “corruptly” is actually defined differently under the various obstruction provisions, but it often involves a showing that someone acted “with the intent to secure an unlawful benefit for oneself or another.” Encouraging leniency or advocating for an associate is improper but not necessarily seeking an unlawful benefit for him. .
