Unfavorable ratings, bimodality, competence, and realty

A recent article said, “Trump is viewed unfavorably by 67 percent of Americans overall.  Big whoop.  The authors would like you to believe that somehow translates into an element of undesirability or an inability to beat the opposition.

WRONG!

Ratings of unfavorability measure a candidate’s clarity, and are NOT indicative of their popularity or their ability to defeat the opposing party’s candidate. Clarity heightens bimodality, which in turn raises the percentage of those who swear they would vote against a candidate. Meanwhile, candidates who are unclear on the issues have a much lower disapproval rating.
 
What actually MATTERS is three-fold:
 
1. Do they have both the education and experience to fix the problems facing our country, and the leadership skills to forge the path to success?
 
2. Do they have the savvy to know what works vs the idealism to try what they think will work (but probably won’t)?  Idealism never solved any problem, and never will.  It has, however, lead many nations down the primrose path to destruction.
3.  Will their supporting votes (the only ones that matter) be enough to beat the supporting votes of the opposition?
For some reason, a number of blitheringly idiotic people continue to highlight Trump’s unfavorability rating as if it had anything to do with reality.  If our country had a bimodal voting system, where you could cast one positive vote for the candidate of your choice as well as a negative vote against the candidate you think would be the worst in office, then unfavorability ratings would matter.
Since our voting system involves only one positive vote, however, unfavorable ratings simply do not matter.
Get over it.

Trust and Competence: A quick analysis of the 2016 candidates

There’s only one competent candidate I trust:  Trump.  All other candidates have proven beyond any shadow of a doubt that they are either untrustworthy or incompetent:
 
UNTRUSTWORTHY::
 
Cruz: Liar, cheat, swindler, and complicit in election fraud
 
Clinton: Liar, possible murderer, and self-acknowledge felon (both gross negligence in handling classified information as well as intentionally destroying official government records)
 
INCOMPETENT::
 
Sanders: His blitheringly idiotic and obviously socialist economic policies would utterly destroy all aspects of American prosperity should they ever be implemented. They’re classic examples of what NOT to do, and are prime fodder for Economics professors and students at high school, undergraduate, and postgraduate levels for decades, at least until the next blitheringly idiotic socialist comes along.
 
Kasich: During his long, 18-year history as a member of the House Armed Services Committee, he helped cut the Navy’s A-12 bomber, ostensibly due to cost overruns, and favored the multi-service F-35, which has far, far greater cost overruns. He pushed through the BRAC bill. He’s outstanding at cutting costs, even when doing so cuts operational capability, not only in the military, but in many other government circles, as well.
Please take the time to thoroughly research all candidates before choosing your favorite.  Our nation’s very survival depends on it!

Is Hillary Planning a Political Assassination?

In 2008, Hillary Clinton let slip a very serious line of thought with respect to the potential political assassination of then Senator Barack Obama:

“My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right?  We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don’t understand it.” – Hillary R. Clinton.  (May 23, 2008).  Argus Leader editorial board interview.

Did Hillary really mention the possibility of Senator Obama being assassinated as was Senator Robert Kennedy in 1968?  It appears so.  Was she really hoping for Obama’s assassination as a means of accessing the top spot in the Democrat primaries?  Well, we know for a fact that Bobby Kennedy’s assassination ended his presidential candidacy:
 
“The assassination of Robert Francis “Bobby” Kennedy, a United States Senator and brother of assassinated President John F. Kennedy, took place shortly after midnight on June 5, 1968, in Los Angeles, California, during the campaign season for the United States Presidential election, 1968.” – Wikipedia. (February 29, 2016).  “The assassination of Robert F. Kennedy
 
If you think we’re making this up, think again.  Here’s the video:

Fast-forward to 2016, and ask yourself, “Who is on Hillery’s hit list now?”
 
As the 2008 article mentions:
“It’s all about her path to the nomination. A possible assassination of Senator Obama. Yep. This is what it’s come down to.” – Bob Cesca.  (May 31, 2008; updated May 25, 2011).  Worst Person in the World.  Huffington Post.
 
More recently, examination of the e-mails she illegally kept on her server appear to indicate she discussed murder for hire aka assassination hits against more than a half a dozen individuals who have historically proven to be the greatest thorn in her side with respect to her political career, including Stew Webb and his attorney, Thomas Heneghan, and Mary Schneider.
Is it Bernie Sanders? Is it Donald Trump?” Perhaps she’s thinking about taking them both out at once, “somehow,” and blaming it on Islamic political assassinationactivity. Better yet, figuring out a way to get some Muslim to push the button.  Perhaps she’s in league with Obama, but almost assuredly she remains fully in league with the Democrat Party.  Obama’s draconian and blatantly un-Constitutional “executive orders” that give him near totalitarian authority over every aspect of American business, economic, commerce, law enforcement, and military operations in times of “national crisis” appears to pave the way for a 2016 takeover of the entire federal government, thereby establishing a permanent situation of “national crisis” that amounts to a de-facto dictatorship with him at the top.  Could an assassination build the case for Obama seizing such control?
 
Hey, folks – this is NOT anywhere close to being out of the realm of possibility:
 
1. Political assassinations have been happening since Ug ran against Og for Oog and the biggest cave around, beating Og with his club to secure the election with Oog at his side.
 
2. Four U.S. Presidents have been assassinated in our nation’s history; two in the 19th Century, and two in the 20th Century.
 
3. A whopping fourteen members of Congress (both House and Senate) have been assassinated while in office, and nine others suffered serious injuries during assassination attempts.
 
4. As for the Clintons, just Google “Hillary Clinton death trail” or “Clinton body count” to see various lists, including one with more than 90 such political assassination“persons who have died in suspicious circumstances who
had connection to the Clintons or the Clinton’s dealings. The length and breadth of this list is disconcerting.  It is beyond credibility that very many of these cases are coincidences.”
 
So, the bottom line question of the day is: “Is Hillary Clinton and/or the Clinton regime and/or the Democrat Party and/or any other regimes that back any of the above planning to assassinate Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump this summer?”
Hmm…
 
Given some forty years of accumulated statistics surrounding the Clintons, along with her bizarre comments during her 2008 campaign, I think at least some of these events are entirely possible, particularly when you compare the Clinton’s very long list of unacceptable behavior to the minimal and even nonexistent lists of other members of Congress and even U.S. Presidents.
