Michael Moore Endorses Trump? 

Why is Trump doing as well as he is? Things just aren't going well for a substantial portion of the US population. I blogged about this earlier. I called it Lower Class Angst. This is my third post on this, which contains links to the other two posts. 

Many leftists, often because thier disgust for Clinton is greater than thier disgust for Trump, actually support Trump. There is also the point that Clinton supports US wars, but Trump seems to not do so. Jill Stein wants your vote for president, yet she thinks that Trump is less scary than Clinton. This isn't exactly a ringing endorsement. I feel the same way. 

Michael Moore is talking about the same issue in the following video as I did in my blog post. I usually do not post items with bad words, but in this case these words seems more appropriate than normal. Moore supports Clinton, but he gets it. There is quite a bit of confusion on this, even leading some to thinking that Moore's latest movie is pro-Trump. It is not. 




What Difference Does it Make: In Song. 


It Depends on What Your Definition of "Is" Is. 

The title is the phrase Bill Clinton used to explain that his perjury was not really perjury. He was only lying to himself, no one else bought it. In the same way when someone says that rigging an election is rare, well it depends on what your definition of "rare" is. Sure, outright voter fraud is "rare." It is 1 to 2% in a some states. In a close election, which this might be, this may be enough to switch one state from Trump's column to Hillary's column. Here in California voter fraud of this range is easy to do. When you register in California, all you need is a driver's license number and 4 numbers you say are the last four digits of your social security number. Then you promise that you are a citizen. Right, no fraud there. As someone who's identity was compromised, I can say that this is actually no security at all. 

The election of Loretta Sanchez over Robert Dornan to congress a few years ago is a good example. The margin was just a few hundred votes. Easily illegal aliens voting gave Sanchez the margin of victory. This is not to say that it would not have happened in the next election, the whole state is trending hispanic, and therefore democratic. 

This video from Project Veritas shows that Hillary Clinton was personally involved in disrupting Trump rallies. While this particular disruption is not egregious, if you think that Clinton was unaware of all the different illegal activity done by her aides, you are very naive. 

How is the election being rigged? 

We are right now in a recession. But yet no one notices, at least on the news. The numbers are rigged. The markets are rigged. 

The opinion polls are rigged. It is vary easy to do. The idea is to discourage Trump voters. Yes, the Clinton campaign was caught doing it. (A friend on Facebook pointed out that this email is from the 2008 primary election. This is an old established technique of propoganda.) 

The media is biased. Do I really have to provide an example? By determining what is news and what isn't the media gatekeepers decide what is important. Which is more important, the coarse things Trump said over a decade ago, or the Clinton corruption exposed by Wikileaks? I would say that both are important, but I do not control any media outlets.

Here is an example:

The media is in the bag for Clinton, but this is truly extraordinary. Between ABC News, NBC News, and CBS, they covered the Trump tape for 23 minutes during one night of coverage. The Clinton WikiLeaks revelations got just 56 seconds of coverage — with NBC News omitting it altogether.

If you rely on network news, you are being played. If nothing else happens but people realize that the media is biased and one needs to get one's news elsewhere, that will be a great improvement. Even that outcome seems doubtful. 


Which Lizard Do You Support?

From So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish. 

...On its world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."
"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford. "It is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them," said Ford. "They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates to the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards?"
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard," said Ford, "the wrong lizard might get in."

I hope your lizard wins.


Nah, Things Aren't Rigged 

It seems pretty obvious that we, as voters, are being played. The lack of extensive coverage the WikiLeaks emails are getting, the fact that NBC knew of the tape where Trump said admittedly disgusting things for months and decided to release it in October, and perjorative terms used to describe Trump by supposedly objective journalists, all this leads to this conclusion. You are being played. 

Here is an example of the behind the scences dirty tricks of the Democrats. 

A vote for Clinton is a vote for 4 years of these kind of activities. Do not think that this is me arguing for Trump. It is not. As Ralph Nader said, choosing the lessor of two evils is evil. Ayn Rand said something similar.
