  • Republicans stand at a crossroads. With Donald Trump as the presumptive presidential nominee, we are witnessing a populist hijacking of one of the United States' great political parties. The GOP, in putting Trump at the top of the ticket, is endorsing a brand of populism rooted in ignorance, prejudice, fear and isolationism. This troubles me deeply as a Republican, but it troubles me even more as an American. Enough is enough. It's time to put country before party and say it together: Never Trump.

    I'm not the first Republican to say Trump is a phony and should not be president, and I expect there will be many more to come. But as a former chief executive and treasury secretary, I hope to bring an additional perspective to the discussion.

    "kinda like buying poo poo mu at your suggestion for 19 plus, moron"

    [How about when I recommended buying it at $9.41, dufus. And you ignored this advice and lost a 50 percent gain in 5 weeks. If you only had an education and weren't a deadbeat drag on the economy and had a life other than stalking. Then you might be a human being instead of a mentally ill impotent wannabe thug who spends his waning years sucking on a lemon and trying to make everyone else as miserable as he is. ]

    WinTel Inside?

    "How is the Microsoft-Intel partnership working out? NOBODY wants to pay over $1000 for a WinTel Ultrabook running Windows 8 Metro Tiles! A MacBook Air for under $1000 is a great deal though."

    [Dude, nobody is going to buy anything with Windows 8. It's all Windows 10 now. If you don't know this then you have no right to be giving anyone buying advice. And in case you haven't noticed, the MacBook Air has Intel processors. Do you even understand who you are bashing and why? ]

  • When Stephenee Simms heard in 2006 that Donald Trump was building condo towers in Baja, the lure of a posh weekend getaway on the rustic coast just south of Tijuana was hard to resist.

    Simms, then an aerospace purchasing agent living in Canoga Park, said she used her life savings to pay a deposit of just over $50,000 for unit No. 602, a one-bedroom overlooking the Pacific.

    The sales team gave her a book, bound in blue suede, describing a resort where residents “relax by the infinity-edge pool, margarita in hand, as the cabana boy brings fresh towels.”

    In the end, nothing at all was built at Trump Ocean Resort, and Simms lost her money. As did about 250 other buyers, most of them from Southern California.

    All told, two years of aggressive marketing yielded $32.5 million in buyer deposits, every bit of it spent by the time Trump and his partners abandoned the project in early 2009 as the global economy was reeling. Most of the buyers sued them for fraud.

    The Trump Baja fiasco fits a pattern in the Republican presidential candidate’s business record. Over decades of building a business empire in real estate, casino gaming, golf resorts, reality television and the sale of clothing and other merchandise, Trump has left a long trail of angry customers and vendors who accused him in court of cheating them.

    "Maybe it made sense when everybody was running Windows XP. But Windows 8 Metro tiles and Vista killed the WinTel PC. That's why Apple and Google are leaving Microsoft in the dust."

    [Yeah, except Apple and Google aren't leaving Microsoft in the dust. Take the iPad Pro for instance. That was supposed to make big inroads into Intel/Microsoft laptops and 2in1s. But it's a significant dud. People still want the full Windows experience.]

    Buy the dip or be the dip. Wall Street never fails to over-react.

  • If Trump gets elected the chaos will be much worse. Pinheaded nationalists say they are going to make things much better. Well, get a glimpse of reality, boys. All you are doing is massively screwing things up.

    This is because the average nationalist is no smarter than Adolf Brown Shirt Nuff101 who clearly doesn't have the brains god give a rubber duck.

  • POLITICO reached out to more than 50 prominent Republicans. Few said they plan to attend the convention in Cleveland, let alone speak.

    From Politico

  • When last month’s Washington Post-ABC News poll showed Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton 46 percent to 44 percent among registered voters, it was the third poll in a week to show the presumptive GOP nominee in a surprising lead. Many Democrats began to worry (or at least worry more openly) about the Clinton campaign. Now they can breathe a little easier: The June Post-ABC poll, out Sunday morning, shows Clinton leading 51 percent to 39 percent, a 14 point swing.

    Just about everything that could have gone right for Clinton in the past month has. It’s bad enough for the Trump campaign that he remains unable to improve his image: 70 percent of Americans are anxious about the prospect of a Trump administration, unchanged from six months ago. Sixty-four percent call Trump “not qualified” for the presidency, up six points from May. That may have something to do with the fact that 68 percent of voters agree that Trump’s attack on Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s Mexican-American background was racist. (Even 69 percent of Republicans felt the comments were “inappropriate.”) Perhaps it was the fact that only 28 percent of voters felt Trump did a better job than Clinton of responding to the Orlando shooting, and now a majority trust her more to handle the threat of terrorism. Or maybe it’s that 56 percent say that Trump stands against their beliefs.

    Wants to bring the US all the fine results of Brexit - political and economic chaos, violence and stock market collapses.

    "Your posts indicate the election will be a walk in the park for Hillary. Starting tomorrow, Trump will have to play catch-up I hope for his movement that he can get back to talking about "it's the economy stupid"...and how he will bring back jobs. Should be an interesting week"

    [Trump has no plan to create jobs. Obama has created millions of jobs. Trump is empty rhetoric, nothing more. If he has a plan, please present it to us. You can't - he doesn't have one. Trump will bring economic collapse and as Brexit demonstrates - a collapsed stock market. Anyone with a stock portfolio with more than a nickel in it should fear the election of Donald Trump.]

  • Richard Armitage, the deputy secretary of state under former President George W. Bush, said he plans to vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.

    From talkingpointsmemo

  • A new digital ad campaign from Priorities USA, a “super PAC” supporting Hillary Clinton, equates fighting bigotry with stopping the presidential candidacy of Donald J. Trump. Priorities is spending $500,000 — a large amount for an online ad — on the first commercial, “Dante,” which portrays Mr. Trump as biased against the disabled.

    THE AD Flashing “cancer survivor” tattoos on his forearms, Dante Latchman, 17, tells of surviving a rare spinal-cord affliction that was diagnosed when he was 1. “I’ve spent my whole life fighting back,” he says. He is shown watching television and seeing Mr. Trump mock a reporter (Serge Kovaleski of The New York Times) who has a condition that limits the functioning of his joints. “I don’t want a president who makes fun of me, I want a president who inspires me,” Dante says. “That’s not Donald Trump.”

    The ad drives home its theme — a “Stop Hate” graphic flips to say “Stop Trump” — as Dante is seen walking down the sidewalk with his mother, his gait noticeably laborious.

    Another day of hatred, bile, venom and racism as he takes another step towards his psychotic break.

  • Thousands of wealthy donors who helped fuel Republicans’ presidential ambitions in the last two election cycles have not donated to Donald Trump’s campaign or to other committees supporting his bid, underscoring the challenge the real-estate magnate faces in securing the hundreds of millions he needs to finance his general-election campaign.

    Just 29 people who contributed to a super PAC supporting Republican Mitt Romney’s presidential bid four years ago had donated either to Trump’s campaign, to the Republican National Committee via a joint fundraising committee he established with the party or to a pro-Trump super PAC, Great America PAC, according to a USA TODAY analysis of new campaign-finance reports.

    That accounts for about 2% of the more than 1,400 people who donated to the pro-Romney Restore Our Future during the 2012 election. Similarly, the analysis found only 23 individuals among the more than 3,400 donors who wrote checks to a super PAC supporting Jeb Bush’s candidacy in this election cycle had given to Trump or aligned groups so far.

    Roughly two in three Americans say they think Trump is unqualified to lead the nation; are anxious about the idea of him as president; believe his comments about women, minorities and Muslims show an unfair bias; and see his attacks on a federal judge because of his Mexican American heritage as racist.

    From WaPo

  • Support for Donald Trump has plunged as he has alienated fellow Republicans and large majorities of voters overall in the course of a month of self-inflicted controversies, propelling Democrat Hillary Clinton to a double-digit lead nationally in a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
