    She's talking about "pushing" for an election, so even under that meaning she's saying let's only "push" for an election if the right party is going to win. Not as bad as how many read it, but still not exactly a good sign of her faith in Democracy.

    I can comprehend the situation just fine thanks and have already outlined why I think he is getting support.

    Remember those carefree days when Trump said he could shoot somebody and not lose any voters?



    How things have changed since then...

    :D

    Then why did you just say:

    "Trump is not a Politician. In fact I will take a step into supporting him on something he said (don't assume this means I'm backing him): He spoke to Ford and told them. At a speech he did he said he would pick up the phone to get it done himself. Now, forgive me but that is what a country needs for its people who are about to be tossed onto the dole heap because the company can make its shareholders an extra five or ten dollars a month each in profits. That isn't what establishment politics does."

    :confused:

    You seem just as confused as everyone else when it comes to what he stands for and what you like about what he says.

    Sure the Billionaire everyman, who can stick it to the "system" that has allowed him to become rich without contributing?

    Trump is as anti establishment as Boris and Gove were.

    Obama would campaign for Satan himself if there was a dollar to be had. Actually, given his closeness to the Saudi, he probably already has.

    Yeah, an American President in another country is as effective in his own country and his party.

    not sure why you even bothering making that comparison, desperate times.

    I don't think Clinton has anything to worry about here.

    Seriously RaohNS we get it, we really do, but it is just laughable that people think this way.

    To ignore everything the guy has done - which shows you what the person is actually like in favour of what he is telling you (what you want to believe) which is all lies, is so moronic it's hilarious.

    He is a snake oil salesman of the highest order, preying on the disenfranchised, and people thinking he will actually do any of the things he is promising the 'little man' is the sad part, as they are still going to be the losers, maybe even more so since he hasn't got a clue how to run the country and screwing up the economy is going to hurt them more than the people at the top, as always.

    Hence the view of the average Trump supporter is they are morons, a view not exactly challenged by his supporters on this forum.

    And don't take this as support for Hillary, it's not I really couldn't give a stuff now. Its just a case of damage limitation and hopefully get better candidates next time.

    Tbh, even if Trump did win, he would probably be the biggest lame duck President in history - well, I hope he would, that would be the best thing for all Americans :p

    it isn't very clear which is why she's pushing the FBI for further info

    it seems there is a possibility there are some new e-mails from her, if these are mails that have previously been deleted/withheld then that is really bad news

    hearing related to Trump's alleged paedo rape scheduled for December apparently...

    https://www.scribd.com/doc/316341058/Donald-Trump-Jeffrey-Epstein-Rape-Lawsuit-and-Affidavits

    seems like regardless of who of the pair is elected there is still potential for skeletons to emerge form the closet

    odds on the next US president not serving a full term due to impeachment?

    Not that Trump's friend there is a convicted paedo and also implicated along with Prince Andrew of another alleged rape of a teenage girl in London.

    " by violently striking Plaintiff in the face with his open hand and screaming that he would do whatever he wanted. "


    Hm, where have we heard that last bit before...

    They were not on her private server, so it's irrelevant.

    That's how Trump supporters treat their women. They'll be proud to know that Trump does it too.

    I delete about 20 to 30 emails a day.

    Who thinks about consequences when they delete emails from a friend asking "pint tonight?' and who remembers them?

    You are no doubt going to say "its the secretary of state, she doesn't get that kind of emails", how about "what time is your flight home tonight?" from Chelsea. Who would've thought that is national security level of wrong when deleting those?

    Deleting emails isn't the problem here, I delete about 50,000 emails over 8 years myself, if she deletes 30t to 40k it's nothing out of the ordinary. It is what those emails are that is more important.

    So when Trump supports keep saying "they found more emails she has deleted", its nothing more than hot air, show me some substance, stop repeating the same line again and again.

    I know when I delete my work emails though, they don't actually get deleted.
