Trump will win by a landslide in 2020. Liberals are the ones saying this, and that explains everything. 

The bombshell admission came last week on MSNBC.  New York uber-liberal Donny Deutsch said, “Trump will be re-elected in 2020 by a landslide.”  That—while amazing—is not the bomb.  It’s what he said next: “That’s why Trump must be removed from office now.” 

As Wayne Allyn Root put it: “Donny revealed what liberals are all thinking, deep down. Trump is a lock for re-election by a wide margin. As Deutsch admitted, that’s why he must be stopped now.

Crazed liberals scream for his removal … impeachment … even assassination. Because they know Trump is succeeding. He is effective, he is erasing Barack Obama and he is fundamentally changing America back to a conservative, capitalist nation. They know they can’t stop him at the ballot box, so they have decided they have to stop him any other way they can — even resorting to violence, conspiracy and sedition.”

Did you see the words, violence, conspiracy, sedition…even assassination?

This explains everything.  It explains why CNN sent reporters to Thailand to interview prostitutes who “may have dirt on Trump.”  It explains why Hillary is not being investigated for Russian collusion.  It shows why the left will stop at nothing to get him out now.

Last December my spirit was deeply disturbed.  I sought relief in intercession.  My thoughts turned toward the President.  I wrote this to our partners in late December: “A massive disruption, is planned within the next 90 days.  There will be a major move against the president by both Democrats and Republicans.  In short, you will see the most vicious assaults—on our freedoms, our faith, and our children—you have ever seen.”  Those 90 days are up March 24th—the day of a massive march for gun control.

What I didn’t know is why the left lost its mind.  Now I do.  It is the certain reelection of Donald Trump.  It is hideous to think what they might do.  It is disgusting that they don’t care if Trump makes life better for Americans—that’s how deranged they truly are.  But there is a positive to this.

Gideon asked God for one last sign he would defeat the Midianites. It came from the last source he expected: The enemy.  God told Gideon to sneak into the camp of the Midianites—an army as many as the sand of the seashore in number.  He arrived at the right tent in time to hear this: Judges 7: 13 “Gideon crept up to one of the tents just as a man inside had wakened from a nightmare and was telling his tent-mate about it.

“I had this strange dream,” he was saying, “and there was this huge loaf of barley bread that came tumbling down into our camp. It hit our tent and knocked it flat!” 14 The other soldier replied, “Your dream can mean only one thing! Gideon, the son of Joash, the Israeli, is going to come and massacre all the allied forces of Midian!” 15 When Gideon heard the dream and the interpretation, all he could do was just stand there worshiping God! Then he returned to his men and shouted, ‘Get up! For the Lord is going to use you to conquer all the vast armies of Midian!’”

Beloved, the enemy is admitting reelection.  We should rejoice but we should also be interceding for our president to be protected form whatever is coming.  Now you know what is going on and how to pray.

3 years ago today Mario warned this would happen

Your firewall is gone. You had the great luxury of Obama’s mind numbing failure. Now you have the car keys and they are looking to you for action. You had a pass and could focus on attacking Obama’s agenda without having one of your own.   It’s time for ideas not campaign rhetoric.repub leaders copy

Republicans had better have a plan and act on that plan or they will end up worse than the Democrats.

By Mario Murillo  November 6th 2014

Dear Republican leadership,

The inevitable disaster of last Tuesday was long overdue for the White House of Cards.  Obama was kept on life support by his race, a cadre of Network news anchors, Ivy League socialists, corrupt unions, and idealistic youth.  Most, with the exception of a pathetic patch of lefties, have abandoned Barrack Obama.

But let’s be clear about one thing: The tidal wave of rejection of Obama is not a ringing endorsement of the Republican Party. Many who voted against Obama’s cohorts did so because they are only slightly less angry with Republicans.

Having won control of Congress, the GOP must now put forward a clear program to create jobs and govern reasonably, lest it give Democrats the upper hand for the 2016 presidential election…and do many other very bad things to you.

rand-paul

Here are the clear and present dangers for Republicans:

A. Your firewall is gone. You had the great luxury of Obama’s mind numbing failure. Now you have the car keys and they are looking to you for action. You had a pass and could focus on attacking Obama’s agenda without having one of your own.   It’s time for ideas not campaign rhetoric.

Of course Obama will veto everything but that does not matter.  You had better be busy sending an unending steam of bills that are designed to create jobs and make us safe.

B. Your words will come back to haunt you. For years you have said to the democrats, “why didn’t you get something done when you controlled the House and the Senate?” Every word will boomerang on you if you repeat the inaction of the Democratic Party.  If you dawdle and wrangle you will see a litany of campaign ads that will quote everything you said against Washington incompetence and gridlock.

C.The American public will not wait to vote you out. Their anger has been awakened and it will take them less time to turn on you than it did to turn on Democrats. We have given you the opportunity to govern and you must get to it!  If not, you will lose seats as fast as you gained them and you will lose the presidential election of 2016.

Here is what you must do immediately:

1. Send Obama a bill to completely repeal Obamacare. Yeah, I’ve heard all of the excuses: We cannot repeal the Affordable Care Act, because it lacks enough votes in the Senate to override a presidential veto; it is impossible to roll back the clock, because the old insurance plans are gone, and many individuals now depend on the ACA’s previsions, no matter how costly those may be….blah, blah, blah.

 But wait, America hates Obamacare.  Surely the nation that landed on the moon can do better than Obamacare…at least that what millions of Americans think and they are looking to you to do it.

I repeat…for the sake of your survival, send a bill to the President to repeal Obamacare and come up with a plan to save the best medical care in the world.   If that doesn’t work then  keep sending him smaller bills that target the most onerous parts of the Affordable Care Act:  junk the employer mandate, make insurance plans compete with each other to lower premiums, and benchmark the prices charged for medical devices. Just do it!

2.Get the Keystone Pipeline up and running! When Democrats oppose energy independence they look like sandaled hippies banging their foreheads against wind chimes as they saunter out of a head shop.

Obama has no cover for his job killing environmental terrorism.  We have the technology to protect the earth and America’s future.   Get the pipeline bill passed!   The votes are there to overcome a veto because many Democratic Congressmen will be in jeopardy at home if they vote no on the pipeline.

3.Secure the border.  Support for Obama among Latinos has dropped by nearly 20 points.  You would be shocked how many Latinos want a secure border.  Given their culture, conservatism is the natural home for Latinos.  Now is the time for common sense.  Before we talk about legalizing anyone we must stop the flow of criminals, disease and terrorists into the United States.

4. Finish the investigations on Benghazi and the IRS.  These remain high crimes against the American people and the victims deserve justice.  Get to the bottom of it and punish the guilty.

We can all think of a hundred more things that Republicans should do…but these 4 are burning within me.  There you have it…a solemn warning.  You begged and fought for a chance to serve America.  Here’s your chance.  Take it, run with it, or there will be the infernal regions to pay for it.

The media’s war on “fake news” will destroy them. Here’s why

When Journalists took sides in the election and let Hillary Clinton dictate their campaign coverage they began to self-destruct.  Here’s why their war on fake news will finish them off.

In a piece for Market Watch by Darrell Delamaide, just days before the election predicted their implosion:  “Newspapers have long since been doomed by the digital revolution and the collapse of their economic model. New waves of buyouts and layoffs recently announced by the New York Times, USA Today and the Wall Street Journal mark another step by print media toward extinction.

Broadcast networks, too, face severe difficulties as new technologies and changes in viewing habits transform the television industry and bring new challenges to news operations.

But it is the bias of the establishment media so blatantly in favor of the establishment candidate, Hillary Clinton, that may strip these news organizations of their last claim to value — as an objective and authoritative source of information — and hasten their demise.”

You would think when the media was outed as biased and dishonest they would changed their ways.  As Frank Luntz said, “After Election Day, the media promised to improve substantive reporting and focus on real issues. They have learned nothing.”

benghazi-massacre-blog-copy1 (1)

Their mental disconnect is stunning.  Derek Hunter said, “You hear it all the time – MSNBC and CNN hosts and pundits can’t fathom the concept of their policies being unwanted any more than they can accept that they don’t work. Their losses have to be caused by other factors.

Since the election, Democrats have blamed everything but a comet, a plague and the death of Prince for the GOP winning the White House and holding Congress. A couple more appearances by Howard Dean on TV, and you probably will start to hear about comets and plagues.”

If being in the tank for Hillary began their doom…here is what will seal it: THEIR WAR AGAINST “FAKE NEWS.”  Back in October, Obama—flush with overconfidence that Hillary would win—said “there is no way to rig the election.”  Now he believes the election has been rigged.  The media agrees and they are pushing the fake news narrative.

What they are purporting boggles the mind:  Wikileaks was more powerful than all the liberal media!

Think about it…the left just levelled the greatest insult ever to NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and all the other legacy news media.  How weak are you when your combined influence is less than one lonely website? But it gets even more mind-numbing.

The Gallup poll says 68% of all Americans say the liberal media fakes the news, yet they have started a crusade against fake news.  Hypocrisy does not begin to cover this. This is irrational.

charade

Irrational people will not listen to reason. They don’t care about rational explanations. They want to fulfill a need right away.  The media will behave irrationally until that need is fulfilled.  The media needs to be right but America says they are wrong.  America is telling them that if you do not want to tell the truth we will not buy your product.

A sane person or company would heed that warning.  The fact that the media is pushing the fake news narrative—which is astoundingly embarrassing and without merit—proves they would rather die than admit they are wrong.  Sadly, they will get their wish.

However, this opens a gigantic door for the Gospel in America.  This is because the message of Jesus was a prime target of the media.  Being the mouthpiece of secular progressives and Hillary meant they had to discredit and lie about Christianity.

The media called the Gospel sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic, anti-science, anti-immigrant and on and on.   Christian values became the all-purpose thing to be offended by.  It was the last legal prejudice.  But something has changed!

I tested this fact by saying deliberately saying Merry Christmas to someone I knew didn’t like it.  At first, they gave me a scowl.  Then they caught themselves.  I could see it in their eyes.  That moment of recognition.  Thinking this wonderful gesture is a symbol of oppression is a silly thing of the past.

But it goes much deeper than that.  People tried to protest churches for supporting Trump.  That is gone.  The insults have gone.  The late-night comedians feel the fatigue of a public that is sick of leftist rants.  It is not funny anymore.  Teachers don’t get away with class rants against God and America anymore.

College students—millennial snowflakes who whimper, cry foul at anything Christian and run to safe spaces look real pathetic to the public.  Something has changed.  The shift is unmistakable.

4

A door to share the love and power of Jesus has opened.  But it will not stay open long.  We have this golden moment of opportunity for a handful of years.

The left will come back like a rash.  They will regroup and once again try to control the nation.  They cannot help themselves.  In the meantime, we must preach the Good News without apology or hesitation.  Revival–heaven sent true revival–will build a new nation under God that will stand the test of time.

 

HALLELUJAH!

The prayers of the saints have been answered.  Hallelujah!  Political Correctness is done. Hallelujah!  The swamp will be drained.  Hallelujah!  The evangelical vote is back!  Hallelujah!   Israel has a new friend. Hallelujah!  

HALLELUJAH!

By Mario Murillo

The prayers of the saints have been answered.  Hallelujah!  Political Correctness is done.  Hallelujah!  The evangelical vote is back!  Hallelujah!  Israel has a new friend. Hallelujah!  The Swamp will be drained.  Hallelujah!  The justice that our government refused to deliver came from the people.  Hallelujah!   Abortion has a new enemy.  Hallelujah!   A leader will work for us and not our enemies.  Hallelujah!   The Supreme Court will be saved.  Hallelujah!

The people have repudiated the Obama legacy.  Hallelujah!  Obamacare will be replaced.  Hallelujah!   America has been spared.  Hallelujah!  Instead of filth, there will be faith in the White House.  Hallelujah!  The House, the Senate, and the President will work together for hard working Americans.  Hallelujah!  Outreach ministries are safe from the IRS.  Hallelujah!  A corrupt mainstream media has been discredited and neutralized. Hallelujah!

When I first began blogging about Donald Trump 18 months ago, pastors told me I could not preach in their church anymore.  A Christian television network banned me.   I was called racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic and many names I won’t publish.

donald-trump

Even more insidious, were minister friends close to me who accused me of abandoning my calling.  They said I needed to be winning souls and not speaking out politically.  Instead, I did both.  I exhausted myself winning souls, and prophesying against the wickedness in Washington.

I went to God every day.  I trusted Him!   He repeatedly said, “keep going son.  Keep speaking out!”  When old sources of finances dried up, God opened new ones.  When pulpits closed to me new doors opened. 

To the bitter end, most preachers refused to stand and be counted.   That is something they must live with.  However, a remnant declared the truth and faced the onslaught.  I am so proud of the voices that spoke out!   I am no hero.   I am but one of many who simply obeyed.

I give all of the glory for my strength, my fellow warriors, and for this miracle for America to Jesus Christ.

Today, you are indeed, witnessing a singular miracle in American history.  Donald Trump faced insanely impossible resistance.  He was pronounced dead again and again.  Today, he stands with humility, on the cusp of making America Great Again. Hallelujah!

Let thousands see your Hallelujah.  Leave a comment and say Hallelujah!

Today, you’ll hear terrifying things about our government. But it may be a miracle.

 

Today, you’ll hear terrifying things about our government. But it may be a miracle.

By Mario Murillo

In the next few hours you are going to hear some truly terrifying things about our government.  Today you will find out things you were never supposed to know.  An avalanche of facts will confirm some of our worst fears and God’s great mercy.

Remember when you thought the president was supposed to protect us?  Remember when you thought the Department of Justice was supposed to bring justice?  Remember when you thought the State Department was supposed to keep us safe?

Well sit down…because here comes the truth: We have not had a democracy for 8 years.  We have been led by a junta—a crime family.  They have finally been outed.

Here is what you already know:

CNN fed debate questions to Hillary Clinton.

George Soros owns voting machines.

Barack Obama ordered the FBI not to indict Hillary and stopped them from convening a Grand Jury to indict the Clinton Foundation.

The Clinton campaign paid people to start fights at Trump rallies.

Facebook, Google and Twitter conspired to manipulate information to place Hillary in a good light and Trump in a bad light.  They lied and censored to advance her campaign.

We know that 65% of all Americans believe Hillary has broken federal law.

We know that 53% believe it was wrong not to indict her.

Today you are going to find out how deep and wide this collusion really is.  You get to meet the many tentacled beast.

These people did not merely blur the Separation of Powers Act of the Constitution…they removed it.  They formed a legislative monopoly—one that pools power and freely operates above the law.

One of the first to discover this was Bernie Sanders.  Only, they scared him so badly that he is terrified to tell us the truth—he even turned on his own supporters.

Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Loretta Lynch, the Department of Justice, the State Department, the IRS and our mass media, newspapers, magazines and social media including Google, Facebook and Twitter all work together.  They collaborate… they plan things.

hillary-and-obama-pic-575x380

This was how John Podesta could tell Hillary every move the DOJ was making in advance.  Then it all came out in the open.

We now know that at least 5 nations have hacked and now own Hillary Clinton’s emails.

We now know there is a 99% chance that Bill and Hillary Clinton will be indicted for criminal activity involving hundreds of millions of dollars.  They are under suspicion for selling influence to enrich themselves.  They sold favors to nations that are sworn enemies of the U.S.!

We are still at the tip of the iceberg.  James Comey has been aware of this information for almost a year.  He has even more information…enough to fill an ocean liner.   He finally caved and sent a letter to Congress to announce he was reopening the Clinton email investigation.

Why did Comey brave the wrath of the ruling family?  Because  “Rogue”  FBI agents couldn’t take the filth, lies and abuse of power on the American people anymore.  They forced Comey’s hand.  These agents are true American heroes.

While I do not condone stealing emails, we must admit that WikiLeaks was key in finding out things we never would have known.  If it were not for Fox News you would not see it on television.

Today you will be hearing things even Thomas Wolfe could not put in a scandalous novel.  Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might as you hear the horrifying reality that God is trying to spare us from.  A tidal wave of information will be coming out within hours.

Again, you were never supposed to find out about this.  I believe this is an answer to the prayers of the saints.  You had better realize you have been given a miracle.  If you and I do not seize this miracle, then we deserve all the tyranny that Hillary will hand out.

Today I believe God has had mercy on us to expose this before the election.  Time to dump Bill and Hillary like nuclear waste…and drain the swamp.

TRUMP’S VISION FOR AMERICA

By Peggy Noonan

Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so. If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help. Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1. 5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life. He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.

Trump wants America to have a strong military again. He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense. He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur who could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn’t said it directly that I know of, Trump’s attitude about America and about winning tells me he’d most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle. Clearly Trump is a “win at all costs” kind of guy, and I’m sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too.

peggy_noonan-copy

Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 7 core principles: A) American interests come first. Always. No apologies. 😎 Maximum firepower and military preparedness. C) Only go to war to win. D) Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies. E) Keep the technological sword razor sharp. F) See the unseen Prepare for threats before they materialize. G) Respect and support our present and past warriors.

Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.

Trump makes the point that China ‘s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them. He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again and drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here. Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing. For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U.S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U. S. , once again creating jobs here.

Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S. 394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws. According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin’s drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.

Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America . He wants to build a wall to stop illegals from entering and put controls on immigration. (And he says he’ll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn’t put it past him.) He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for those who are here illegally.

Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy. He wants to make America the place to do business. He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1. 6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1. 5 million jobs we’ve lost to the current tax system. He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. He wants to change the personal income tax to: Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%. From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%. >From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%. $1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%.

Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it’s a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity” that “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed”. He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down. He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.

Trump wants spending reforms in Washington, acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue. He has said he believes that if we don’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country.

Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients. He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy. On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.

Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs “a safety net, not a hammock. “ He believes in a welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare rolls and encourage people to get back to work. And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.

Trump believes climate change is a hoax.

Trump opposes Common Core.

Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.

Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.

Trump’s view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a state’s rights issue, not a federal issue.

Trump supports the death penalty.

Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense, innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm. . . looks like he believes in horse sense! ). He says it’s about seeing the unseen and that’s the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around. He tells a personal story to illustrate the point: “When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles , I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events. Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it’s on the Pacific Ocean ), and cost about $5 million. I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done. The problem wasn’t the size of the room, it was the size of the chairs. They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy. We didn’t need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs! So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people. Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense. On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.

Donald Trump’s entire life has been made up of success and winning. He’s been accused of bankruptcies, but that’s not true. He’s never filed personal bankruptcy. He’s bought companies and legally used bankruptcy laws to restructure their debt, just as businesses do all the time. But he’s never been bankrupt personally.

He’s a fighter that clearly loves America and would fight for our nation. Earlier I quoted Trump saying, “I love America . And when you love something, you protect it passionately – fiercely, even.”

An expert explains why Trump will win

ELECTORAL COLLEGE MATH, AND WHY I THINK TRUMP WILL WIN

As Donald Trump has caught up with Hillary Clinton in the polls, he has likewise closed the gap in the electoral college. Ipsos/Reuters says the race to 270 votes is now nearly tied. Many are focusing on Maine, which allocates its electoral college votes by Congressional district, and where one district going for Trump might change the result.

A reader who has been studying the numbers sends a link to 538 (“Democrats Should Panic … If The Polls Still Look Like This In A Week”) and adds:

I presume Trump wins Nevada. Adjusting for that, if this is accurate Trump loses 265 – 273. So he needs New Hampshire desperately to tie, and then win in the House…or NH plus Maine’s 2nd Congressional District for a bare win 270 – 268, second closest in history.

That could be right. But I think more likely, Trump will win rather easily, and win going away as he did the Republican primaries. I expect him to carry states like Ohio, North Carolina, Florida, Michigan, maybe even Pennsylvania. Why? Two reasons.

The first can be explained with an old story from the world of marketing:

A company came out with a new dog food, and hired an advertising firm to promote the product. The ad agency placed commercials on television and ads in magazines; millions of dollars went into the campaign. The commercials and ads were first-rate, but still the dog food did not sell. The client called a meeting at the ad agency and demanded to know what had gone wrong.

After a moment of silence, the leader of the ad agency team explained: “The dogs don’t like it.”

Hillary Clinton can be re-launched, re-packaged, and protected by a phalanx of reporters. The liberal establishment can do its best to jam her down our throats. But we–the voters–don’t like her. And the more we see of her, the more our dislike is confirmed. She is too weak a candidate to be elected president.

Second, everyone knows that the press is trying to elect Hillary, and most Americans resent it. Every day, editors and reporters try to inflict an anti-Trump theme on the rest of us. Today’s hysteria revolves around Trump’s comments on Hillary’s hypocrisy regarding gun control:

She goes around with armed bodyguards like you have never seen before. I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons. They should disarm. Right? Right? I think they should disarm immediately. What do you think? Yes? Yes. Yeah. Take their guns away. She doesn’t want guns. … Let’s see what happens to her. Take their guns away, okay? It would be very dangerous.

Trump obviously was making the point that he and countless others have made many times before: liberals like Hillary Clinton, who are protected 24/7 by armed guards, are deeply hypocritical when they try to disarm millions of Americans who don’t have taxpayer-funded protection and rely on their own firearms for self-defense. The point is a powerful one, which is why liberal reporters don’t want to acknowledge it. Instead, they absurdly pretend that Trump was hinting that Hillary should be assassinated.

This kind of thing fools no one. Millions of Americans are quietly fuming over the press’s overreach, going over the top, day after day, to defeat Donald Trump. The blowback is building, and will continue building until election day.

At one point, when I was opposing Trump during the GOP primaries, I said to the press: Stop attacking Trump! Liberal reporters often began with a valid point, but their hysterical hatred for Trump caused them to go too far, making arguments that were patently unfair and unsustainable. Therefore, the more they attacked Trump the more his support grew. The same thing is happening now: most Americans have a pretty good sense of fair play, and they know that Trump is being treated badly by the establishment–a group for whom most Americans have no great affection.

Much more could be said, and will be between now and November 8. But let’s leave it there for now. Like most observers, I have usually been wrong this year, so there is no reason why anyone should pay much attention. But, for what it is worth, I don’t think this year’s election will turn out to be a nail-biter. Nor will it be a landslide, but I do expect a relatively easy win for Donald Trump in both the popular vote and the electoral college.

Could Trump screw it up by making a horrible blunder? Of course. But I think there is a greater chance of disaster coming from the Clinton campaign.
