Not Even Optics Matter In This Election

Filed under: General — Dana @ 6:17 pm



[guest post by Dana]

I guess if truth doesn’t matter in this election, why would something as trivial as optics?

Earlier this week, we learned that the pro-Taliban, gay-hating father of Orlando terrorist, Omar Mateen, was given priority seating behind Hillary Clinton during her campaign rally in Kissimmee, Florida. The criticism from Trump, as well as others, was well-deserved. Clinton spent the next day ignoring questions about Mateen even as her campaign tried to brush it off. Finally, she was pressured into publicly disavowing him.

But then this happened:

Untitled

This, while Trump, with Foley beaming behind him, attacked Clinton about Mateen’s prominence at her rally:

“Wasn’t it terrible when the father of the animal that killed the wonderful people in Orlando was sitting with a big smile on his face right behind Hillary Clinton? And by the way … a lot of the people here — how many of you people know me? A lot of you people know me,” Trump said, addressing the crowd behind him as Foley raised his hand.

“When you get those seats you sort of know the campaign, so when she said, ‘Well, we didn’t know,’ he knew, they knew.”

Dumb, dumb dumb.

(Lest we focus only on Trump’s complete lack of awareness, let’s not forget the left’s brazen double-standard.)

Obviously, comparing a disgraced congressman and a pro-Taliban, gay-hating father of a terrorist who killed 49 individuals is not even on the same level. But, as I’ve repeatedly said: Trump should really stop giving the Democrats and the media so much to work with.

  1. Idiots abound.

  2. In one sense Foley’s presence is worse than Mateen.

    The real ground for Trump’s campaign is against the perverted politicians and criminal careerists that dominate the Beltway.

    Fokey,as a flagrant example, should have been told to leave, not allowed to have a prominent seat.

    At first, I thought this was so incompetent that it might have been sabotage. But I was overlooking that Foley’s fall occurred long enough ago that campaign staff might not have recognized the name.

    getting rid of foley, left us with a hack with two mistresses, thankfully he selfdestructed before he did more damage, he did enough voting for obamacare,

  9. I think your choice is simple here, Dana.

    Either:

    A. DJT is stupid beyond words.

    Or

    B. DJT’s entire strategy is to hand the Oval Office to HRC.

    I don’t think that there is much in between.

    This is why so many Trump supporters are so angry. They understand, deep down, the level of sheer incompetence in the Trump campaign…over and over again.

    But who benefits from it?

    DJT’s good friend.

  10. no, simon, we saw a terrorist, protected by this admininstration, slaughter 49 people, his chief enabler was allowed to get out of the country, his father who likely inculcated this notions is a welcome guest of red queen, and that (redacted) who sits in the oval, used the grief of a victim of this attack as a pitch for gun control. get a clue about what matters.

    According to Joseph Wambaugh a Mexican prison riot came under control when a beverage truck showed up and started unloading cases of Coke.

    Pinandpuller (c16705)

  19. The truth, you can’t handle the truth!

    I think Trump was making a point, and as usual those with their own agenda cannot understand, I mean are incapable of understanding, anything beyond.

    Say, did you know Christ had sinners at his ralley’s, and He forgave and accepted them? He didn’t deny the their existence?

    OK, I’m sure now you nevertrumpers are flinging holy water around and moaning for the good Lord to protect you from the blasphemy of comparing Trump to Christ, but that’s not what I’m doing. I’m contrasting the Christian perspective with, well, Hillary, who’s first instinct is always to lie, even when the truth sounds better.

    It takes a real Christian to discern these things, a hater cannot. I really believe this is the point Trump makes, even if Trump himself doesn’t fully understand it.

    OK, I’ve set myself up for devastating attacks, go!

    LBascom (0b9b35)

  20. Narciso, my friend, we don’t disagree. Mark Foley is just some perve.

    But here is the thing. DJT is supposed to be all smart. He hired “the best people.”

    Right?

    After HRC’s terrible optics, any decent organization would have vetted EVERY. FREAKING. PERSON. IN. CAMERA. VIEW. WITH. TRUMP.

    The press were going to be looking for people in the shot with DJT. Right? That’s the game plan, year after year.

    Here is the thing. The meme warefare is all about claiming equivalence. No, they aren’t equivalent. But think about what the press hammers on, every single day. What the late night comics hammer on, every single day.

    Who are these jokers running DJT’s campaign?

    Unless, of course, it’s part of his plan.

    Simon Jester (ba9f7c)

  21. “… is not even on the same level.”

    You know that, but you still do it.

    Trump’s not the one playing the Democrat’s game. YOU are.

    tom swift (be1908)

  22. But I was overlooking that Foley’s fall occurred long enough ago that campaign staff might not have recognized the name.

    If this is true, kishnevi, then it again points to the amateurish not-ready-for-prime-time campaign Trump is running.

  23. and they would make it about something else, simon, I don’t know what was the ultimate deal with foley, although the coda with hastert suggests there was more smoke than fire,

    narciso (732bc0)

  24. LBascom, I think Hillary was knowingly pandering to Muslims with Mateen’s father there. I don’t believe Trump was pandering to pervs. She’s that calculating and devious. He’s, well, he’s just Trump.

  30. Dana,

    It’s easier to try and imagine the blow off of the con than it is to imagine the existence of an actual campaign. Although he cannot use GE contributions to repay primary loans and he can’t use campaign money forpersonal expenses he has probably banked enough by now to quit and claim it didn’t cost him a dime. He can set up a PAC and filter the money back to his businesses without much strain.

  37. “Mark Foley” 29k returns on a news search.

    “Omar Mateen” 1,080k returns.

    Mark Foley’s disgrace was due to homosexuality, what many in the country don’t consider a resigning offense. This particular gay, if he had come out forthrightly, most likely would have been re-elected.

    Highly hypocritical of the Dems, featuring the living reminder of a gay massacre
    at their campaign stop,

    While Trump features Foley, hounded out of office on account the Dems needed a get out the vote push in a midterm.

    I like those optics. Farking brilliant actually.

    And Foley was brought down over his emails – rightly or wrongly interpreted.

    How’s that for optics versus the lawlessness of the red queen, and her much more consequential and extensive email scandals.

  51. Big nothing. Foley was “disgraced” because the Republicans were in the fit of a moral panic and threw him overboard. Threw away his seat too. What did he do that was so terrible? He propositioned former pages, when they were no longer under his authority in any way, and of legal age. That’s certainly not illegal, and I don’t see how it’s even unethical. Is it also unethical for a teacher to date a former student, or a manager a former subordinate? At worst his behavior was unseemly. But the GOP was trying to appear purer than pure, so out he had to go.

    Well, he is. He;s been very clear about that. Except it can’t be precisely San Francisco because he knows he can’t carry California. He’s thinking in terms of national polling, although, when he discusses strategy with his advisers, he thinks by state, and that’s why he’s campaigning only in certain states. That’s why both he and Hillary were in Florida.

    As for what’s going on here, sabotage is definitely a possibility. And only maybe one key person would have to be involved in the sabotage.

    And what was this question Trump asked? Did he ask how many people know him? It should be rather, how many people he – Donald Trump – knows. Of course he (Trump) wouldn’t recognize many people he has talked to over the years.

    How is it that Foley’s private emails, which he has the right to privacy, are open fodder for the world?

    Sounds like a crime.

    Well, that’s not the only thing.

    There was Newt Gingrich’s intercepted telephone call in 1998, the secret recording of Mitt Romney (saying 47%) in 2012, and now, in 2016, somebody probably obtained Melania Trump’s immigration file, a serious violation of the Privacy Act – only they can’t leak it because it is a very serious violation of the Privacy Act and Obama would investigate it and not cover it up. That won’t be leaked any more than anyone will leak Donald Trump’s tax returns.

    They can only use the information in Melania Trump’s immigration file to try to cause the problem to be discovered. They know what to look for.

    Bill Clinton’s passport file was pre-emptively not really looked at in 1992, and nobody really knows what was in it.

    The problem wasn’t that it would show some connection to the Communist Party or the KGB or something, because it wouldn’t show that even f there was one.

    Probably the real problem with Bill Clinton’s passport file was his date of birth.

    Which was probably originally different than the one he has used ever since late 1969. I highly suspect he changed his date of birth after the draft lottery of December 1, 1969. Because Bill Clinton was connected enough, and Hot Springs Arkansas corrupt enough still in 1969, to do that.

    He’s the only politician in the 1980 Almanac of American Politics without a date of birth, only a month “August, 1946.”

    It is Bill Clinton’s birth certicate – the original one – that everybody should have been interested in. Or what day he used to celebrate as his birthday when he was in high school.

  63. 50. It sometimes takes information you learn years later for something to become more clear.

    In the old days, the television news used to have a one-minute segment at the end of a local newscast where they’d have someone at the station announce the station’s editorial position on a subject. They told you straight-up where they, as an institution, came down on an issue.

    They dropped this practice. Under fire from conservatives for bias, they tried to obliterate every overt, honest expression of opinion on an issue. So they stopped announcing their official position. To hide, to disguise their actual position.

    But they still wanted to get their opinion out there.

    So they simply started smuggling it into their news coverage.

    But that wasn’t the worst of it. The worst was this:

    If you’re not going to admit, for example, that you disagree with the Tea Party on ideological grounds, and yet you still wish to undermine them, you have no choice left but to simply attack them on a personal level.

    The reason the GOP threw Foley under the bus is that it was an election year and they didn’t want the MSM to use the Foley issue as a national wedge issue.
    The GOP lost that cycle big time, anyhow.
    Also, there seems to be a real animosity toward gays by some people on our side of the aisle. We’ve got people characterizing Foley as a “pedophile” even though the young men he pursued were apparently of majority age.

    Didn’t the guy who looked up Bill Clinton’s passport die suddenly?

    No, I think the person who looked it up – actually maybe didn’t look it up – was a woman. She was fired. I always suspected, from the way it played out, that she was a double agent, who made motions to look at the passport file to make sure nobody else did. Ross Perot’s passport file was also looked at.

    Oh I see.

    The name of the woman was Elizabeth Tamposi, a patronage appointment from John Sununu’s New Hampshire, but the actual person who carried out the search, on her instructions, was Steven M. Moheban. Elizabeth Tamposi, according to Wikipedia, said she was asked to search the files by White House aide Stephen K. Berry to check for a possible letter by Bill Clinton renouncing his citizenship, or inquiring about doing so. The Inspector General was told all sorts of conflicting stories, and could not sort out the truth.

    I think Elizabeth Tamposi later went bankrupt (not 100% sure it was her) and also lost her inheritance because she challenged her father’s will. Steven Moheban is still alive, and practicing law in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, it seems. Stephen K. Berry is also still alive, and president of the Rural Cellular Association, and also works for Bank of America/Merrill Lynch. Nobody died.

    And now, yesterday, I was thinking again about what would be in that passport file that would be damaging to Bill Clinton. I think this could be because his passport file would have contained the date he would have given as his date of birth before December 1, 1969, the day of the first draft lottery. You wouldn’t learn who paid for his trip, etc, from the passport file.

    I suspect his pre-December 1, 1969 date of birth was differentt than what it is now, which is August 19, 1946. That date of birth actually raises all sorts of questions. His mother’s husband, who died mysteriously in a one-car accident, was not re-united with his wife until December 7, 1945. (a date I read along time ago. Christopher Ruddy may have been leaked misleading information making it later than Dec. 7)

    That date of Dec 7 – when William Jefferson Blythe Jr arrived in Chicago (there were close ties between Hot Springs and Chicago by the way – Chicago was the headquarters of the Outfit and the big big boss resided in Hot Springs, Arkansas, where he ran the whole show till the end of 1946 and again during the 1950s*) would necessarily make William Jeferson Blythe III a trifle premature, but reporters asked around in 1993 and 1994 and all people said that he wasn’t. (saying that he was, of course, would raise other issues and create a complication – what kind of treatment he had etc, and it would have raised these questions early in his life too.) There is an obvious possible explanation but it’s probably wrong, and in any case a too early birth would have had to be noted.

    There’s much confusion and disinformation

    A reader writes:

    This is from the article from London Times for 1/5/99 by Damian Whitworth: (excerpt from article) Virginia, Bill’s mother, said that Bill was born prematurely after she suffered a fall. But when Vanity Fair tracked down the midwife, she denied he was born prematurely. “Not at that weight. I remember he was a nice size baby, between eight and nine pounds”. (end of excerpt). (My note – this would appear to be yet more evidence that Blythe was not the father of Bill). In the Vortex article (previous email), it indicates that Tyrrell (“Boy Clinton”) theorizes that “one of Virginia’s family or friends at the county morgue found (Blythe who had died recently) and “married” (Virginia) to Blythe”. FYI.

    I think at least part of the answer is that the original date of birth was correct – there’d be no reason to fake it – but that it was changed or “corrected” in 1969.

    Bill Clinton traveled to the Soviet Union before the draft lottery so his passport file would have contained a previous date of birth, if there was one, and maybe a notice of correction.

    If this is so, of course, after Bill Clinton became president, this was probably all taken care of, and the records cleaned up, although probably not without leaving a trace visible to the discerning eye.

    * A lot of people associated with the machine in Hot Springs Arkansas and related criminal activities, moved to Hope, Arkansas, during the interregnum. So it could be maybe you could say: They may have lost Hot Springs, but there still was Hope.

  85. That place has more leaks than the roof of Vince Foster’s mouth.

    What place?

    Anyway, the point is, that this account in the New Republic dated MArch 14, 1994, of the reason why Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the United States Prince Bandar bin Sultan had a secret unscheduled meeting with President Clinton and Sandy Berger sometime in July 1993, is probably a Vincent Foster case leak.

    Prince Bandar has to be one of the top suspects in Vincent Foster’s death, because he lived right next to Fort Marcy Park and officials would go to meet him there, and the explanation for his meeting not only probably doesn’t really check out, but the White House – and the leak could have come from no other place – takes back its explanation in the same article. It cautions against generalizing too much, or at all, yet at the start of the artivle it is touted as an example!

    And the leak happened right at the same time as several known Foster case leaks happened.

  86. 88. crazy (fcf2fd) — 8/12/2016 @ 7:50 am

    Foley and the local GOP bigwigs he was sitting with behind Trump knew he’d be noticed. Were they trying to help or hurt?

    Foley trying to help himself. Somebody else who knew who he was? That could be hurt.

    Hey, Leviticus? You know why Haiku always has sex on his mind? Cause Milo Yiannopoulos won’t give it to him where he really wants it.

  97. Calling out an [vulgar word for anus] for being an [vulgar word for anus] is not virtue signalling. And if you have a beef with my whining, why the gratuitous dirty cracks to Leviticus?
