Third Presidential Debate

In case you missed it, or want to see it again,(full or partial), or simply want to discuss it, the below video is the third and final presidential debate.

In my opinion, Hillary has handled Trump better in debates than any of the GOP contenders during the primary.

Donald Trump helped many decide to vote for Hillary, especially disappointed Bernie supporters.   He said that voting for Hillary is getting Obama for another 4 years.   I think many voters would be happy with that.

 

The Daily Show – Sparks Fly At First Clinton-Trump Debate

After watching the debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump last night, I needed a laugh.  Hope you get a chuckle or two or three or more out of the following video.

 

AP DEM DEBATE FACT CHECK: Clinton Vs. Sanders On Wall Street

Thanks for the fact checks. I’m still applauding Bernie for telling Hillary that her term “superpredators” is racist.

TPM LIVEWIRE

A look at some of the claims in the latest Democratic presidential debate and how they compare with the facts:

CLINTON: “I’m the only one on this stage who did not vote to deregulate swaps and derivatives, as Sen. Sanders did … and that contributed to the collapse of Lehman Brothers and started the cascade.”

THE FACTS: The legislation in question was signed into law by President Bill Clinton.

Hillary Clinton was in no position to vote for — or against — it because she…

Donald Trump – The Violent

Alert: Some might find the language in quotes offensive.

ap_donald-trump_ap-photo20At the University of Miami, the 4 GOP front-runners for the race to president debated. When asked about supporters acting violently at his rallies, Donald Trump responded that people were angry with the current administration, they are patriots, yada, yada, yada. So why is it that they are taking out their anger on other citizens, mostly people who do not look like them?

When I was in junior high, on the day that President Kennedy was assassinated, our social studies teacher wrote on the blackboard; “Ballots not bullets.”  A boy in class blurted out asking if President Kennedy was killed by ballots, apparently thinking that the gun was loaded with special bullets. It gave our teacher opportunity to teach how Americans speak at the ballot box. The lesson extended to explaining that although the United States is a republic, that its voting structure is democratic.   That lesson came back to my memory as I read how Trump supporters act violently.

I did a little research and this is what I found. The Huffington Post reports;

  1. At a rally in Iowa, Trump warned people, “There may be somebody with tomatoes in the audience. If you see somebody ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously. Okay? Just knock the hell – I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees.”

The New York Times reports that

  1. On February 22nd, regarding a protester, Trump threatened to personally get in on the action saying, “I’d like to punch him in the face, I’ll tell ya.
  2. A protester was in the crowd holding a sign that read, “Veterans to Trump: End Hate Speech Against Muslims.” Trump responded by repeatedly saying, “Get him the hell out.”
  3. A Sikh protester was physically pushed out of a Trump rally in Iowa, while fans yelled, “Trump! Trump! Trump!” The protester described it as “a fascist rally in a school gym.

In addition to the above, Slate has published a list of 10 violent incidents at Trump’s rallies and events. Read the rest of this entry

The Republican Debate and ISIS

635858096337010236-AP-GOP-2016-DebateOn Tuesday evening, I watched the Republican debate between those wanting to be nominated and elected as the next president of the United States. I could not help but wonder that if the killings had not happened in San Bernardino, would the main topic of the debate had been what the GOP candidates call “radical Islamic terrorists”? The main issue should have been gun control in America.

Before December 2, 2015 in San Bernardino, California where 14 people were killed and 22 injured, on October 1, 2015, Chris Harper Mercer killed 10 people and wounded 7 at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon.

Before July 16, 2015 when Mohammad Abdulazeez killed 4 Marines and a Navy sailor, on June 17, 2015, Dylan Roof attended a Bible class at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, SC, and killed 9 people.

Before the Boston Marathon bombing and subsequent related shootings on April 15, 2013, that killed 3 people and injured an estimated 264 others, on August 12, 2012, Wade Michael Page killed 6 people and wounded 4 others in a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, WI. Page mistook the worshippers for Muslims.

Before what GOP candidates, including Marco Rubio, call “radical Islamic terrorist” used guns to take innocent lives on American soil, on December 14, 2012, there was Sandy Hook, where Adam Lanza killed his mother, 20 children and 6 adult staff members. Read the rest of this entry
