Between Prez Gay Urkel stammering and Crooked Hillary's robotic, Speak and Say script, Emperor Trump (PBUH) is inside the OODA loop of his foes absolutely wrecking their sh-t.

Some of you already sound like you need to be talked off the ledge. November gonna be amazing.

Laura

Col. You mean a campaign event? It must have been.

GulfCoastPirate

Doesn't matter. The speech sucked.

Sir

Don't know if the San Diego event was scripted but it seems there may be a pattern here.

Now, I'm sure the Borg Queen will claim and correctly so I suppose that all politicians do it.

IMO nether Sanders not Trump stage manages events in this way. Look at the numbers, Her claque in that room amounted to a couple hundred. pl

Daniel Nicolas

The on-the-ground report is that people were prevented from entering with the reason given that it was a 'donors-only' campaign event. Perhaps the audience was handpicked by the campaign from their existing donor list.

Jack

Sir

If the polls are any indication she's sinking fast relative to Sanders in the coming California primary compared to a few months ago. Maybe, she's hard pressed unlike Sanders or Trump to quickly get a few thousand people to an event in California. That would likely imply the momentum is swinging against her for next week's primary. If she loses California next week that's gonna be another week of loss amplification in the media and more questions about her "inevitability".

Very intelligent discussion. Didn't you have a thread a while back about not putting up with this any longer?

The Twisted Genius

It was an audience of invited guests in a ballroom. Unlike a lot of Trump and Sanders events where the size of the audience is a major part of the message, this Clinton event was all about her ridiculing Trump's foreign policy credentials. It was billed as a major foreign policy address. It wasn't. It was an extended political attack ad.

Bill Herschel

I believe that if there are shall we say three debates between Clinton and Trump, she will have a lot on her hands. I truly wonder whether she will agree to debate him. The entire Neocon strategy is directed at silencing him.

In terms of Potemkin Village speeches, once again she is the reincarnation of George W. Bush. Vote for her, you're voting for W. in drag.

Tyler

GCP,

If that's the case how are you posting here?

Tyler

TTG,

As far as I know Trump didnt get anyone killed in Benghazi, destabilized Libya, pressed to wreck Syria, and indirectly flood Europe with rapefugees.

She should definitely keep bringing up foreign policy.

The tone is not directed at you, btw, but her handlers.

Bill Herschel

I will go further than Tyler and say that if Clinton makes foreign policy the focal point of her campaign (and how can she not? she's trapped by having been Secretary of State and by the email scandal and criminal activity, she must emphasize foreign policy) then there is hope for the U.S. and for the world.

The problem will be a false flag moment. If Putin cannot be provoked into acting rashly, the people who brought us sarin attacks in Syria will act rashly in his name. There is another possibility that has been mentioned here in the past, and I will not mention it again. it is too despicable and repellent.

The Twisted Genius

Tyler,

So Trump's foreign policy credentials are no more or less impressive than Obama's were in 2008. That shouldn't hurt him anymore than it hurt Obama. Clinton's biggest albatross is her charter membership in the Borg Hegemony. Nuland and Pyatt worked directly for her when they destroyed Ukraine. She's a charter member of the "Assad must go" club. As far as Benghazi goes, I consider her biggest problem is her being up to her neck in the CIA scheme to transfer Libyan arms to the unicorn army in Syria. Yeah, she has baggage. Whether that matters to the electorate, I don't know.

Don't worry about your tone here. You're in neutral compared to a lot of your comments.

There is no question in my mind, that was a staged campaign event, and not a major policy
presentation, like everything Clinton does it was fully scripted and staged. Trump for good or bad is completely spontaneous I don't think Trump is or wants or even cares to be scripted and coached.

no one

Tyler, Agreed. Going after Trump on foreign policy is a desperate act; a political kamikaze attack. She's done.

That said, the idea was clearly for her to "give a speech" so that it could be repeated endlessly, as "news", on CCN and other unbalanced Clinton supporting outlets populated by elitist fools that just can't accept that their day in the sun is coming to an end.

different clue

Bill Herschel,

Since we here sometimes try to "think the unthinkable" to see where it goes and what it implies, perhaps the other possibility should be mentioned here again, for those like me who either didn't read it when it was mentioned, or can't remember what it was. It could be carefully bracketed with all kinds of disclaimers about how despicable and repellent you know it to be and that you are certainly not accusing anyone of actually thinking about it, but rather just offering a pure hypothetical which has to be thought about in today's strange world of today.

Tyler

TTG,

Cause I like you buddy.

MRW

Colonel, where did you hear it?

readerOfTeaLeaves

I think there is a general disgust brewing, and Hillary's insistence that what she did is 'just like' what Colin Powell did is being met with contempt and derision by people who realize that if they'd put information on a 'private server', they'd have been doing time in jail. I also think that, more generally, people are out of patience with being lied to and expected to continue paying taxes to fund the Borg Hegemony.

Interested to read that Mike Flynn is supposedly on Trump's VP shortlist, I also note that my tip Kris Kobach is also supposedly shortlisted. I don't expect Flynn will get it but Trump has always delegated with his business affairs and I suspect he will be doing so for foreign policy, with Flynn the likely beneficiary.

Where did I hear what? pl

ambrit

A scripted speech in front of a 'hand picked' crowd. Didn't Dubya do exactly this? I remember a Borgist wannabe I worked for once being excited because he had been 'invited' to go to a public venue to cheer 'his President' on. Anyone with a Leftist 'history' was excluded from the appearance. (I knew one such who was turned away from the door.)
What H Clinton did was pure "Machine Politics."

jld

It was a (Robert) Kennedy treatment.
