Glenn Beck (A Professional Moron) Says Only Way HRC Can Win Election Now Is Actual Magic

Because of FBI Director James Comey deciding to interfere in the election (SWTD #356).

[The video that was here has been removed because it is of the type that starts loading and then plays automatically, which I HATE. I mean, I don't want this stupid video to play every time I load this page. Because I have a data cap. Go here and then scroll down a bit to view it. Stupid Beck Blaze encoders].

And, if "magic" somehow does come into play (magic favoring HRC), what we will end up with is a president Tim Kaine. Because HRC will be sent to prison, impeached and removed from office (presumably).

And remember that Glenn was for the Canadian-born religious nutjob Ted Cruz (SWTD #332). And he's said he's not voting for Trump (or Hillary). But now he says Trump has it in the bag.

Me, I doubt it. Maybe Comey's meddling will make it a tad closer, but I'm still predicting an HRC win. Some dumb-dumbs might be fooled, but why the hell should an investigation into Anthony Weiner throw the election to Trump? (BTW, among the dumb-dumbs are people like Luke Spencer, who wrote on his blog that Weiner is HRC's "pervert buddy". Yes, he seriously is THAT stupid).

But I'd say Glenn Beck still has Luke Spencer beat. Or maybe it's a toss-up. Glenn Beck has the fact that he's very wealthy (100 million net worth) going for him. He is apparently smarter than the average dumb-dumb, in that he has been able to fool the dumb-dumbs into giving him lots of money.

A 2/3/2016 Daily Beast article says some people refer to him as a "mad genius". The article then goes on to note that Beck's "media empire" is currently crumbling.

But, even if it burns down, he'll likely come out the other side a wealthy man. It isn't as if he would have to pay the $10 million The Blaze owes out of his personal fortune. At worst he'll declare bankruptcy and sell off the Blaze's assets. Possibly to the coming Trump TV network (speculated).

Donald Trump, The "I Know You Are, But What Am I?" Candidate

Donald Trump employs the "I know you are, but what am I" strategy at the 3rd POTUS debate held at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on 10/19/2016. (0:41).

Another "I know you are, but what am I" from the bigot Trump (0:20). A 8/24/2016 WP says "Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton a bigot while addressing the crowd at the Mississippi Coliseum in Jackson MI".

I could probably find many other examples, but to keep it short, I'll get to my point, which is that Donald Trump, with his "I know you are, but what am I" strategy, reminds me (and Stephanie Miller, which is where this idea actually comes from) of the following scene from the 1985 film, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. In the movie, Pee-Wee Herman employs the "I know you are but what am I" strategy in an argument with Francis Buxton, his neighbor (who, unbeknownst to Pee-Wee, as paid someone to steal his bicycle). (0:07).

Trump Supporters Hear Donald's Calls For Hillary To Be Assassinated If Elected

Members of The Young Turks discuss Trump supporter Dan Bowman explaining Hillary Clinton assassination plans to WSJ reporter.

Transcription of the video above (from 10/17/2016).

Dan Bowman: I feel like Hillary needs to be taken out. If she gets in the government I do everything in my power to take her out of power. Which, if I have to be a patriot, I will.

WSJ Reporter: Is that a physical threat?

Dan Bowman: I don't know, is it? (The Independant article by Feliks Garcia. 10/17/2016).

I would say yes. "If I have to be a patriot, I will" is code for him saying he will attempt an assassination and give his life in order to "take out" a president Hillary Clinton. Exactly what Trump called for! (DSB #52).

YouTube Video Description: At a rally in NC, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Second Amendment supporters may be able to figure out a way to stop Hillary Clinton from picking federal judges as president. It wasn't clear what Trump meant. (Published on Aug 9, 2016).

Regarding whoever posted this to YouTube saying "it wasn't clear what Trump meant"... IMO it was very clear. It was crystal clear to people like Dan Bowman. Give me a break, we all (or at least most of us) know the coded language of the far Right! A "patriot" is someone who dreams of revolution to get the government they want, and "2nd amendment remedies" is a call to assassinate Democrats/politicians you disagree with.

Trump/Pence Yard Signs In My Neighborhood

I've only seen one, although, given that TN is projected to go Trump, I suspect many people are supporting him, they just don't have yard signs. The pic below was taken by me on 10/18/2016, up the road from where I live.

Below is a picture of the house the yard signs are in front of. The last pic is of their horses. As you can see, the house is fairly large, so I'd guess they're voting Trump for economic reasons. But to have a sign in the yard indicates more than support simply because Trump isn't a Democrat. This isn't a situation of someone voting AGAINST a candidate, as opposed to FOR one. SIGNS point to these people possibly being deplorable, in other words.

For the record, I've never met these neighbors. I don't recall when they moved in, but the house was for sale for awhile. They might have been there a few years. I just don't remember.

These neighbors, in addition to the horses, also have donkeys, which are very loud. Not that I'm complaining, I just didn't realize how loud a donkey's braying was before. Sometimes, lying in bed at night, I'll hear them. And they aren't close, but up the road a ways.

President Doofus #4 (The Elder Doofus Puking Incident)

Up until this point in the "president doofus" series all entries concerned george w bush, the 43rd preznit of the United States. But, as we all know, the father of george w bush was also a US preznit.

In this entry in the series, I ask readers to recall an incident that shows that the doofus doesn't fall far from the tree. There are likely other examples, but the one that springs immediately to mind was the time doofus #41 (1989-1993) barfed on the Japanese PM.

Video: George HW Bush fainted after vomiting at a banquet hosted by the then Prime Minister of Japan, Kiichi Miyazawa on 1/11/1992. It is the only documented occurrence to date of a US President vomiting on a foreign dignitary (as per Wikipedia).

Image1: After he pukes, Babs wipes his mouth with a napkin, saying "that's it love. Get it all up".

Image2: Wikipedia notes that "In Japan, even several years later, Bush was remembered for this event. According to the Encyclopedia of political communication, The incident caused a wave of late night television jokes and ridicule in the international community, even coining Bushu-suru which literally means to do the Bush thing".


Although this was not the only incident wherein a preznit named "Bush" embarrassed the American people (who apparently have short memories), as the first doofus was #41 and the second doofus was #43 (with Bill Clinton serving in between as #42).

Although, while the younger doofus served two terms, both times he was "elected" via massive cheating). Only getting in the first time via SCOTUS appointment (in 2000 they decided that, even though Gore had won the election, they would hand the presidency to bush).

Then, in 2004, when Kerry "lost" the Presidential race to George W. Bush, who is widely considered the worst President of the modern era, he refused to challenge the results, despite his suspicion that in certain states, particularly Ohio, where the Electoral College count hinged, proxies for Bush had rigged many voting machines. (excerpt from the 12/28/2015 New Yorker article "Negotiating the Whirlwind" by David Remnick).
