Donald Trump attacks Hillary Clinton for running a "policy free campaign." Say what?

Yes so that was the easy, and completely predictable, response from Clinton to Trump's accusation that Hilary has no child care plan.

However he did not stop there.

Courtesy of the AP: 

TRUMP, at a rally Tuesday in Clive, Iowa: "In recent days, we've rolled out one new policy idea after another ... By contrast, Hillary Clinton is running a policy-free campaign. She offers no ideas, no solutions." 

THE FACTS: By any measure, Clinton has released far more specific plans on far more topics than her GOP rival. Trump's website currently lays out eight policy positions, including spelling out his "economic vision," his plans for child care and immigration reform and his plan to "pay for the wall." Clinton's offers position on 38 issues for potential voters to read. 

They cover, for example, efforts to cure Alzheimer's disease and autism, a prescription for reining in Wall Street, a plan for tuition-free in-state college, and a menu of initiatives to combat climate change. 

She even outlines an initiative to protect zoo animals in the event of a disaster.

Jesus what is he going to accuse her of next?

Not owning any pantsuits?

I have been saying for awhile that I don't think that Trump really wants to win this thing, and now that his poll numbers are going up it looks like he is trying to lose even harder.

Either that or he is just a fucking moron.

Or both.


  1. Projection is for looosers.

  2. His entire campaign is based on projection. His self-awareness = zero.

    Maybe he things "presenting" is only when a speech is given. He goes out and reads a speech written by one of his staff and acts as though HE thought it up. She has lots of facts and details available for anyone interested, to read, on her site. He doesn't bother to check anything, but since she is not out giving talks and speeches, he assumes she has no plans. Unfortunately that seems to be what his supporters are like too. Don't count on them to read anything at all from the left side.

      Seems to me I recall it having been said of Humpty Trumpty's followers that they DON'T read. Too lazy.

      AND, in many cases, they are incapable of understanding anything over one syllable anyway.

Vince Foster, the blue dress, 9/11, Obama's Kenyon birth, toxic chemtrails, brain eating amoebae vaccines, UFO bases in Kentucky, Benghazi, the North Korean email server in Clinton's powder room, SETI, the voices in my head telling me to write this crap...

    "The pervasive influence of corporate cash in the democratic process, and the extraordinary lengths to which politicians, lobbyists and even judges go to solicit money, are laid bare in sealed court documents leaked to the Guardian.

    The John Doe files amount to 1,500 pages of largely unseen material gathered in evidence by prosecutors investigating alleged irregularities in political fundraising. Last year the Wisconsin supreme court ordered that all the documents should be destroyed, though a set survived that has now been obtained by the news organisation."

      HO HO HO

      Here's one of the street corner whores! David "chokehold" Prosser the judge choker!

      "The John Doe files also provide new insight into the extensive efforts made by allies of Scott Walker to help a conservative member of the Wisconsin supreme court, David Prosser, hang onto his seat in a 2011 re-election. A network of like-minded groups and campaigners channeled $3.5m in undisclosed corporate funds to pay for TV and radio ads backing the judge.

      The push was seen as vital, the documents disclose, as a means of retaining the rightwing majority of the court and thereby preserving the anti-union measures introduced by Walker. “If we lose [Justice Prosser], the Walker agenda is toast,” one ally writes in an email sent around to the governor’s chief of staff and several conservative lobbyists.

      In 2015, Justice Prosser refused to recuse himself from a case in which the state supreme court sat in judgment over the John Doe investigation, despite the fact that the investigation focused on precisely the same network of lobbying groups and donors that had helped him hang onto his seat. The judge joined a majority of four conservative justices who voted to terminate the investigation and destroy all the documents now leaked to the Guardian.

      Prosser told the Guardian that four years had passed since his re-election before he joined the decision to close the John Doe investigation, over which time any potential conflict of interest had faded."

    Unfortunately all Trump has to do is say that Hillary Clinton has no policy plans and the media will go along, as well as the great uninformed (and largely uninformable) public. Next you'll be getting comments here on IM accusing Hillary Clinton of not putting forth anything on policy because she's 1) too sick, 2) mentally unstable, 3) stealing all of her ideas from Donald Trump, or 4) being too sneaky to have any policy ideas.

    Yesterday or today (see Politicussa), Hillary Clinton posted 20 questions about Trump's shady foreign business dealings that need answers. These questions should be repeated by the national media and answers demanded from him during upcoming interviews. We know, however, that nothing will happen. The media gives Trump a free ride all the time.

    He demonstrates a lack of intelligence, talent an ability to have an original thought. He just throws things out there to see if it sticks. If he gets negative blow back, he changes his opinion to stir up the most people. He projects onto his opponents exactly what he is guilty of. All the time. He has no plans or policies to serve his constituents other than to throw rancid red meat at them. He is truly an empty suit.

    Any Lewis Black fans in the house?

    "Donald Trump was apparently so upset by one of Lewis Black’s Daily Show segments that he tried to contact him about it, Black told The Daily Beast.

    “His assistant called my assistant, said he wanted to talk to me,” Black recalled. “At first, it was like, ‘What? Why would he call me? No one ever called me about anything I ever did on The Daily Show. So I said I was too busy and couldn’t talk to him. I thought, ‘Wow, I’m a comic, he’s an entrepreneur—a businessman. How is it that I’m more busy than he is? That’s unbelievable.”

    Black said in the 2011 segment that Trump’s embrace of “birtherism” was a signal that the then-Apprentice host was planning his own presidential run.

    “I, for one, couldn’t be more on board,” Black cracked at the time. “Trump 2012 — you’re fired, America!”

    What the US needed, Black argued, was “a crazy Third World dictator.”

    A bombshell report is raising questions about Trump’s business ties to Russia and Iran

    A Newsweek report published on Wednesday revealed potential conflicts of interest the Trump Organization has that could jeopardize national security if the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump were to become president.

    The report outlined the Trump Organization's connections to foreign businesses and governments and raised questions over whether the Republican presidential candidate would sever ties to these partners if his White House bid is successful.

    The report specifically cited the organization's ties to the Russian and Iranian governments....

    Hillary Clinton hammers Trump over bombshell Newsweek report: How can Americans trust you?

    14 SEP 2016 AT 15:44 ET

    Have you read the bombshell Newsweek report detailing Donald Trump’s shady foreign entanglements? Hillary Clinton has, and she’s got a lot of questions for her Republican rival.

    Reporter Kurt Eichenwald painstakingly detailed how the Trump Organization would put American national security at risk if voters choose the real estate developer and former reality TV star as president.

    The Clinton Foundation — a charitable organization set up by the Democratic presidential nominee, her former president husband and their daughter — has attracted scrutiny and the attention of Russian hackers and WikiLeaks, but Eichenwald’s report offers some insight into what Trump’s unreleased tax returns might reveal.

    Those foreign investments and entanglements raise serious national security concerns and could potentially threaten international alliances if Trump is elected — and Clinton listed 20 questions she wants the GOP nominee to answer...

    Clinton Campaign Tweets '20 Questions' For Trump On Newsweek Revelations

    The Hillary Clinton campaign has some questions for Donald Trump, in light of the Kurt Eichenwald revelations that his company sought profit from a "relationship" with Mummar Qaddafi, the late and labelled "terrorist dictator" by the US Government, of Libya.

    1. Will you sever ties with your company linked to foreign leaders, questionable organizations, and criminals if you become president?

    2. How will you handle non-cancelable contractual obligations with parties whose interests conflict with those of the United States?

    3. While refusing to release your tax returns, how will you confirm that you do not have dangerous financial ties to bad actors abroad?

    4. If you were willing to work with Qaddafi—a known terrorist and dictator—is there anyone you aren't willing to make a deal with? Who?

    5. How can you be tough on Iran, given your business partnership with someone connected to Iranian money laundering?

    8. Will you disclose the nature of your personal and business relationships with all of the Russian oligarchs you are “close” to?

    10. How did the Russian mob boss who ran a criminal organization out of Trump Tower get a VIP pass to your Miss Universe pageant in Moscow?

    I can't help but feel that this piecemeal "nationwide permit 12" workaround was Ken Salazar's idea. And Hillary has him as her main man #1 of her transition team and possible cabinet.

    "What is the historical context for what is happening with the Dakota Access pipeline?

    I would say the main point in terms of historical context is that these oil pipelines — the Keystone XL, Enbridge and other companies’ pipeline expansions throughout the Great Lakes region, the growing natural gas pipeline buildout — have always undergone an environmental impact statement that looks at the impacts and alternatives and so forth before they are allowed to go forward. It’s required by law under the National Environmental Policy Act. The Keystone XL controversy really was a turning point. Since then, we’ve seen the Army Corps of Engineers, in particular, and other agencies basically approve pipeline after pipeline without any environmental impact statements. That’s what happened here.

    To put a finer point on it, the tribes are concerned about, among other things, water quality, and no agency has ever analyzed the risks or impacts of oil spilling from this pipeline, in any state of review. Not a single word.

    The way the Corps has begun avoiding this transparent process is through what’s called nationwide permit 12. It’s essentially a blanket permit for pipelines up to a half-acre of impact, a pre-issued permit. The Corps has begun treating these 1,200-mile pipelines like a series of half-acre projects that each qualify under that exemption. This is a general permit that doesn’t mention oil spills or climate impacts and never talks about Native American tribes and cultural significance and sacred sites."

    Salazar is the one that removed the wolves from protection in Montana and Idaho.
