"This all lead to Bill Clinton's impeachment."

My hat's off to you for doing all the research, but at the end of the day the only thing accomplished by Ken Starr was a waste of time and money.

Bill Clinton was changed with abuse of power and perjury by the House of Representatives and acquitted by the Senate. Neither Senate vote was a majority, not even close to the required 67, and according Republican Senator Arlen Specter, the charges were "unproven". 

"Yes, your prediction came true. We'll see on Nov. 8 how much support Trump has."

The only prediction I'll make for November 8 and it's based on the 2004, 2008, and 2012 Electoral maps is if Clinton wins Pennsylvania and Florida, Trump can't win.

"I'm sure others here can add some more, (please do) but you get the idea."

One of our KY Senators six years ago demanded term limits and Rand Paul is currently running for his second six year term. I guess Paul forgot our other Senator, Mitch McConnell is in his sixth term. Term limits are not at the top of the list, but it and lots of other pet agendas are used to get elected but not actually do. Bet the farm that on November 8, all the KY Reps and Paul will be re-elected. And copy and paste that in many other states because for decades the Republican and Democrats exchanged control.

With that in mind, how can there ever be real change in Washington?

Re: Your last question. Vote out the incumbents if we're not happy with them. The people vote them in, they can vote them out. Do that to a few Congressional lifers and everyone will be shocked. That will give the rest of them a real wake up call that the people are pissed with them. 

And the clear message will be, shape up or you'll be out too, the next election day.

The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

    That's correct, but the other protesters did not get the respect that the President gave to that guy in uniform.

    I know trump would not have given that guy in uniform any respect, throw him out, in trump's words.

    Yes, Utah so far is going to Evan McMullin.

      http://nypost.com/2016/10/14/trump-camp-puts-forward-witness-to-refute-sex-assault-claim/

       

      The man says he was sitting across from the accuser and contacted the Trump campaign because he was incensed by her account — which is at odds with what he witnessed.

      “I have only met this accuser once and frankly cannot imagine why she is seeking to make out that Trump made sexual advances on her. Not only did he not do so (and I was present at all times) but it was she that was the one being flirtatious,” Anthony Gilberthorpe said in a note provided to The Post by the Trump campaign.

      I saw that on TV too Jamora & I think the man was telling the truth about it!

        Hillary wants open borders.  How can anyone be for that?  If you are, then take the front door off your residence.

            lol! door off.

            Assange yea - no coverage on CNN....

            also on CNN story about being a Muslim American in year of Trump..who cares about that connection?

            What about Muslim Americans right after 9/11? It's been there for years, it didn't start with Trump..

             

            AND what the h*ell is CNN doing with those ads all over the place: Make in India...What?

             

            And the move to rid Iraq of ISIS is secondary news over #1 spot: Trump sticks to rigged claim..

            well, we already knew that, it WILL be rigged...boxes of votes sitting in warehouses..ready to be slipped in with

            actual votes...wow we are a rotten corrupt dirty dictator type country thanks to Hillary Clinton.

              The best outcome for the 2016 Presidential Election would be for BOTH Trump and Clinton to lose the election [not enough electoral votes], and the decision ends up in the Congress.  The best strategy for Congress would be to do what Congress does best, take a long time to make up their minds [delay tactics, like what the Senate is doing with Judge Merrick Garland] until March 2017, when the Vice Presidential candidate chosen by the Senate [which will probably be Gov. Mike Pence] can become the legal president.  Out of 5 choices [Trump, Clinton, Kaine, Pence, and possibly Johnson or McMullin (Utah)] Gov. Mike Pence is the best and wisest choice for the next U.S. PresidentHe is probably the lesser of 5 Evils.

                He should have released all of the emails instead of playing the outside game to change an American election.

                  Trump Tax Plan Seen Adding Jobs, Then Costing Them Long-Term:

                  Donald Trump’s proposed tax plan could provide a short-term boost to the economy before costing more than 690,000 jobs over a decade, while Hillary Clinton’s plan could send job-creation in the opposite direction -- first down, then up, according to a new policy report.

                  The main reason for the differing outcomes is the plans’ effects on the federal debt, according to the analysis by economists and computer engineers at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania -- which didn’t consider their spending proposals. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, proposes tax cuts for businesses and individuals, while Clinton, the Democratic nominee, proposes tax increases on the highest earners.

                  Donald Trump’s proposed tax plan could provide a short-term boost to the economy before costing more than 690,000 jobs over a decade, while Hillary Clinton’s plan could send job-creation in the opposite direction -- first down, then up, according to a new policy report.

                  The main reason for the differing outcomes is the plans’ effects on the federal debt, according to the analysis by economists and computer engineers at the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania -- which didn’t consider their spending proposals. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, proposes tax cuts for businesses and individuals, while Clinton, the Democratic nominee, proposes tax increases on the highest earners.

                  While Trump’s plan stimulates more growth and jobs “in the very short run, it under-performs both current policy and Clinton within a decade, due to higher debt,” a synopsis of the report says. Success for the Trump plan “hinges critically on finding substantial cuts to government spending down the road,” according to the synopsis.

                  The brief report was prepared by the Wharton School officials in tandem with the Washington-based Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center.

                  It found that under Clinton, growth in gross domestic product, a measure of total economic health, would fall 0.19 percent in 2018, when measured against growth expected without the effects of her plan. But by 2027, Clinton’s plan would produce GDP growth of 0.4 percent above the baseline, and by 2040, 1.19 percent above the baseline.

                  Trump’s plan would grow the economy by 1.12 percent above the baseline in 2018, but then shrink it by 0.43 percent in 2027 and by 6.73 percent in 2040.

                  The report is based on the “Penn Wharton Budget Model,” a new, proprietary method of calculation that incorporates predictions of the economic effects of tax proposals on human behavior. The group’s method, known broadly as “dynamic scoring,” used data from the Internal Revenue Service, the Federal Reserve, mortality tables and population surveys, among other sources, to model the candidates’ plans

                          Donald Trump Attacks Republicans Who Dare to Play Down His 'Rigged' Election Rhetoric:

                           

                          donald trump's 

                          unsubstantiated claims of a fraudulent election process have created a problem not only for members of his own party but also even for his own ticket.

                          While the Republican presidential nominee railed against alleged "rigging" or a "rigged" election more than 20 times this weekend, some of his fellow Republicans — starting with his running mate — are trying to tamp down the rhetoric.

                          The GOP vice presidential candidate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, seemed to take a different position on the accusations, saying he and Trump "will absolutely accept the results of the election."

                          Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, who has come under fire from Trump after Ryan advised House members to do what’s best for them when it comes to supporting the party's nominee, released a statement this weekend reiterating that he is confident the election will be fair and not fixed.

                          "Our democracy relies on confidence in election results, and the speaker is fully confident the states will carry out this election with integrity," Ryan's press secretary, AshLee Strong, said in an email.

                          But Trump is doubling down, making it clear now that he's not only taking aim at the "rigged" system but the "naive" Republicans who aren't standing by him on the allegations.

                            Correct, it seems contingency plans have been put in place.  Doesnt take a rocket scientist to see who wants the wikileaking stopped.

                            There is so much information on the underhanded doings by Hilly and her top advisors it is hard to keep up. 

                            This fraud knows no bounds.  The fix is in.

                            Quid quo pro between hillys state dept and the fbi. State dept tried to influence agency on the Hillys emails.  Obstruction of justice to try to bribe and attempt to alter documents.  Patrick Kennedy offered a bribe to change documents.

                              Democratic voters need to know their party has changed with the nomination of Hillary Clinton as their candidate for

                              President.

                              The trouble with some Democrats is they have a party loyalty which should be reconsidered for the 2016 election. As long

                              as it looks Democrat, speaks Democrat, says it's Democrat..the Dem voters and supporters are there to cast their vote 

                              across the board. Democrat as a basic standard of the selection in the voter box should be below what the basic standard is

                              for ethics and truth. If voting Democrat just because that's what you've been all your life is why you're voting Hillary, then

                              your reason has to be examined. Hillary doesn't represent traditional Democratic ideas. Hillary's power hungry core can't

                              process traditional ideas and values. The thousands of leaked emails have given great, great insight into who she is and

                              who she surrounds herself with...their way of thinking is her way of thinking, her way is their way too. She is led and pushed

                              in so many directions but the main objective for her is always there. She wants to be the first woman President of the US.

                              We aren't ready to simply ignore what isn't right in favor of a preference in political party. If we sink to that low, we are as

                              corrupt as she is because we are going along with it and letting on that it's ok with us.

                              I'm ashamed of our FBI and also our media and also of the Democratic party. There are concerns within the party that suggest 

                              their honest opinion is they do not support Hillary. They don't like her, don't agree with her and don't respect her. They can't

                              openly express their opinion because of the force put on them to accept Hillary. The Republican party breaking ranks over media

                              based sensationalism is another let down. They will be up for re-election and it's sad they can't come out to defend Trump

                              because sexism has been blown way out of proportion. So if they stand by him, they are afraid they will suffer. When did 

                              politically correct help Americans? Never.

                              You should think about the specifics of what the promises are...ARE there ANY? How are they going to DO it? Are you SURE

                              it's something that won't be the same as the last 8 years? When she says affordable health care...affordable child care..paid

                              college...paid sick leave/maternity leave..Jobs...WHAT AND HOW?? They don't say because they can't say. They want you to go

                              on a "we're going to do it, so just go with us, ok?" 

                              When someone's main goal is to serve themselves, how can they possibly serve YOU? She can't.
