And you wonder why Donald Trump will become the next president of the United States? When half his voters believe his Democratic opponent heads a child sex ring out of a pizza shop in D.C, then it should come as no surprise that Trump will be sworn in on January 20th. Oh yea, and Russia helped his “election too.
I actually know one of these people. He believes that Hillary Clinton is the cause of everything wrong in America, so when the fake news story came out that Hillary sold young kids for sex, even cooking and eating some of them, this guy, my co-worker, was more than delighted to tell me how much of a devil Hillary Clinton is, and how this child-sex story proves his point.
But I digress.
No matter how many times law enforcement and the media insist that there is no Democrat-led pedophilia ring being run out of a D.C. family restaurant, there will always be people who believe that there is.
Specifically, there will always be Donald Trump voters who believe that Hillary Clinton traffics kids out of a pizzeria basement. That story was spawned and propagated by fake news sites and even led to a man discharging a gun inside of the restaurant in question. Still, the rumor persists.
Notably, almost half of Trump’s supporters believe in the so-called “Pizzagate” scandal that centers around the supposed child sex ring while 57% of Clinton’s supporters rejected the idea outright.
The man who pushed the conspiracy that the Sandy Hook shooting did not happen and that all 20 kindergarten students killed in the attack are still alive, recently pushed another story that caused an armed gunman to enter a pizzeria and began firing off the weapon.
Remember pizza-gate? The Fake news story that claimed Hillary Clinton to be the head of some child sex ring ran out of a pizzeria in D.C, and that she eats the kids? That story, as fake and far-fetched as it is, was deemed true by true by Alex Jones. And he called on his listeners to “investigate” the pizzeria to find the captured kids.
Now I want to be clear. Not everybody in the WikiLeaks is involved in this. Clearly. You have to go investigate it for yourself. But I will warn you, this story that’s been the biggest thing on the internet for several weeks, pizzagate as it’s called, is a rabbit hole that is horrifying to go down.
A gunman took Jones’ words to heart. On December 4, Edgar Maddison Welch went into the D.C pizzeria armed with an assault rifle and began shooting. No one was hurt but Welch later told The New York Times that he got the idea to “investigate” the pizzeria from Alex Jones and his Infowars website.
Jones immediately deleted whatever evidence he had showing him as Welch’s instigator. But the video still exists.
I’m amazed that Trump’s game is not seen by more people, especially those people who call themselves “pundits” which is essentially the art studying politicians. I am clearly a novice compared to the professionals we see on TV every second of every day. But so far, the professionals are still perplexed by Donald Trump.
Here’s my simple observation. If you want to know what Donald Trump is up to, just listen to the way he attacks his opponents. It’s a classic case of blame your opponent for the very thing you’re guilty of. This method – something Trump has done over and over again – is also known as Karl Rove Strategy #3 – a primitive psychological process of Projection, better known as ‘Blame-Shifting.’
Take Trump’s latest dust-up for example. On Monday, Trump dabbled in Rove’s playbook once again when he claimed, “millions of people…voted illegally” and without any proof to substantiate his claims, Trump went further, saying that “serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California.” This frantic blame-shifting game came into play after news broke that Hillary Clinton appeared willing to join efforts requesting election result recounts in Michigan and Wisconsin.
It is well documented that Russia played a pivotal role in Trump’s election “win.” Federal agencies have investigated and concluded that Russia hacked into computers and databases of a number of Democratic officials, including the Democratic National Committee, and information deemed harmful to Hillary Clinton was revealed.
Others have taken this even further. Some say that Russia’s influence on the 2016 election did not stop at hacking databases for Democrats, they claim that Russia also hacked into the voting machines as well. There have been numerous polling stations reporting that the amount of votes cast for Trump were greater than the amount of registered voters on record. Clearly, something is amiss and you don’t have to be a math genius to figure it out. Trump trailed the entire way in the general election process, then blew-out Clinton on election night. Many say that was only possible with the help of Russia’s hack-job.
So now that recount requests are made in Michigan and Wisconsin – two states that Trump “won”, Trump is projecting blame again, blaming the other side for things his side did during the 2016 election. With no proof whatsoever, Donald Trump is now claiming that voting irregularities happened in Democratic won states like California, Virginia and New Hampshire.
Karl Rove Strategy #3 is strong and at play. And the professionals are still wondering what is up Trump’s sleeve!
An online petition is gaining signatures from all over the country. The petition is asking the Electoral College to vote for Hillary Clinton when the 270 voters meet in December to decide on the next president.
In fewer than 24 hours, an online petition asking the Electoral College to elect Hillary Clinton instead of Donald Trump for president of the United States has amassed over two million signatures.
“Mr. Trump is unfit to serve,” the petition argues. “His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic.”
“Secretary Clinton won the popular vote and should be president,” it continues. “The only reason Trump ‘won’ is because of the Electoral College. But the Electoral College can actually give the White House to either candidate. So why not use this most undemocratic of our institutions to ensure a democratic result?”
And, the Republicans keep control of the House of Representatives and the Senate. All three branches of government controlled by Republicans.
President Obama laid out a simple truth today while doing his final campaigning for Hillary Clinton. Revealing that Donald Trump’s campaign advisers took away Trump’s twitter account over the weekend, the President asked;
“If your closest advisers don’t trust him to tweet, how can we trust him with the Nuclear codes?”
I haven’t heard it said so clearly before. Can you imagine?

The announcement came just days before the 2016 presidential election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. After arousing the Republicans’ manhood with news that more Clinton emails were found on Anthony Weiner’s computer, FBI Director James Comey has now announced that after reviewing the new emails, there will be no further charges to Mrs Clinton.
The pressure was intense. FBI Director James B. Comey had told legislators in late October — less than two weeks before the election — that the bureau’s work had resumed, igniting a firestorm of criticism that his revelation had affected the election. The agents’ work, at first, seemed endless. They had to use special software to sift through some 650,000 emails.
But on Sunday, just two days before the election, Comey announced that the team had news to share. After reviewing “all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State,” he wrote, investigators had “not changed our conclusions.”
The messages, U.S. officials familiar with the case said, were either personal or duplicative of those found earlier in the investigation.
