Donny Trump wins tomorrow. Rubio ends up below expectations due to his robotic performances. Kasich is up. But Christie takes third. As to our primary - Bush. Bet on it. I did.

No, Christie will NOT take third. I spent the weekend knocking on doors in New Hampshire this weekend and not a single person said they were voting for him. Katich, yes. Christie, no.

And Bernie will win handily.

Bernie Sanders will trounce Hillary. She deserves it. Setting up the Clinton foundation where her husband gives a thirty minute speeches for $750K to Ericsson of Sweden, a Swedish telecom company that openly provided telecom services to the Iranian government, despite its sponsorship of terrorism, at a time when the State Department was cracking down on such nefarious deals.

So Bill Clinton gives the speech to Ericsson on November 12, 2011. Then miraculously just one One week later, on November 19, the State Department unveiled its new sanctions list for Iran and guess what? Drum Roll! Ericsson's name is not on the list. What a coincidence! Some suspicious people might even call that a bribe. Was Hillary in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act? No! She would never do anything like that. That was just an unfortunate coincidence

Now for another unfortunate coincidence.
Bill Clinton globe trots over to Abu Dhabi(AUH), UAE to give a $500,000 speech. At the moment he is being introduced on the stage by the crown prince, his brother, the UAE Foreign Minister, is jetting across the Atlantic in his personal private jet for a meeting with Hillary to cut a deal for foreign aid.

After leaving the White House, Bill Clinton gave 13 speeches for which he was paid $500,000 or more; eleven of them took place while Hillary was in charge of the State Department. They make huge payments then Hillary makes favorable foreign policy decisions. No Quid-Pro-Quo there.

Bernie is honest and corruptible. He doesn't lie. Hillary only tells the truth when it aligns with her avaricious goals. She views the world as a giant ATM machine which dispenses her huge sums of cash in trade for foreign policy decisions favorable to foreign Governments, but unfortunately not in the best interests of the United States.

Do we really want to elect someone who will sell out the United States in her quest to to accumulate as much wealth as possible?

This is why Bernie will win in New Hampshire. They are smart people who have not drunk the Kalifornia Kool Aid.

What the ????

Thread is about today's election, [Part removed. Please make your point without negative characterizations of other posters, or attempting to identify them.]

... about Bill Clinton (demonstrably the most popular national politician in America Web Link ) and some old speeches and Iran.

What about Carly's company selling products to Iran, violating sanctions? Breitbart: Web Link

What about Cheney's Halliburton violating sanctions against Iran. Infowars/AlexJones: Web Link

[part removed.


re: "have not drunk the Kalifornia Kool Aid"

Yo, neighbor: want to know what we call one in ten AMERICANS?

We call them: "Californians". If ya hate us so much, Rick "Oops" Perry has a place for you. Just avoid Austin, where the smart Texans reside.

Newspaper quote:

"The problem with Hillary is that the voters know her too well: a majority of voters don't trust her. Her narrow win in Iowa showed the depths of resentment towards her coronation, while defeat in New Hampshire -- the state that rescued her in 2008 from immediate annihilation by Barack Obama -- would make matters so much worse."

Another Newspaper Quote:

"She is playing from a very old playbook. Take the appearance of a tired, wan Bill Clinton on the campaign trail -- attacking Bernie Sanders in the deeply personal way that he once did Barack Obama. Or consider, Hillary's aggressive courting of the female vote. Her politics is the politics of identity, narrowed down to a very specific constituency: she's selling herself as the hope of everyday rich white women who want to be president. Out came Madeleine Albright, who tastelessly said that there was a special place in Hell for women who don't back Hillary. The combination of these two themes -- feminism and Bill Clinton -- is uncomfortable."
