Bombs and bullets be damned, Trump Doubles down on White Nationalist close to 2018 elections.

quote [ The Pentagon announced Monday it will deploy 5,200 additional troops to the U.S.-Mexico border by the end of the week to stop thousands of migrants and refugees in a caravan from entering the country. ]

It is obvious Bob Dole, even though he won at the time, has lost that fight for the soul of his party. This is a complete departure for the party of Lincoln. There have been dog whistles since the time of Reagan and Buchanan but this is the first full on push into the White Nationalist realm.

To see dyed in the wool conservatives like Joe Scarborough struggle with this show the division inside the GOP. And this blatant move in the last days of this election leaves no doubt as to the motive.

Joe: Trump, GOP use racism as their closing argument

I don't think it maters that the whole strategy is base on pure fiction, or its using race as its motivating fear. There is no crises at the border, there is not ISIS or MS13 involved with the people moving up from Central America and that point has already been proven, even for Fox Viewers as shown here

The group of people are still south of Mexico city and won't be able to get here for over a month or longer They are not an invading army, they are refugees fleeing life threatening and soul crushing economic conditions...they are no threat and there is no need for over 5,000 troops...but none of that maters.

Exclusive: Trump targeting birthright citizenship with executive order

But he has been successful in setting the tone.This now a who are we election. Democrats have been trying to run on the issues Healthcare...

Half of 2018’s Democratic campaign ads are about health care

In midterm races, health care is far and away the No. 1 issue for Democrats — and many voters.

It is coming down to who are we...

Despite the Bombs and murders Trump is pushing ahead with this a closing message apparently giving up on the House, because this is a dead ball looser in the districts up for grabs but...It is a play for the southern States that will determine the Senate.

I'm annoyed that the media has been reporting his stupid birthright threat as if it's something he can actually do (it's not). Way to play his game, shitwits.

The one that got me the worst was the "Fox News" host saying that the migrants were infected with Small Pox even though Small pox was irradiated from the planet over 40 years ago.

Ballot initiative might just save Dems in Missouri and Arkansas. The polls are tight in Missouri for Claire McCaskill though I am not at all sure she deserves it.

Missouri and Arkansas To Vote On Raising The Minimum Wage On Election Day
The two ballot initiatives would gradually hike the wage floor to $12 and $11, respectively.

She rode a MW initiative into office the first time she ran but instead of embracing the populist message she is tacking right trying to run down the middle as Republican lite. She goes on "Fox News" and said...

Speaking exclusively to Fox News on Monday, vulnerable incumbent Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill dropped the names of two high-profile colleagues, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, when asked to identify the "crazy Democrats" from whom her campaign has distanced itself in recent days. McCaskill said she wouldn't call the two "crazy," but noted they had disagreements with each other.

At a rally yesterday Pence had a Messianic (Christian sect that keeps the trappings of Judaism) rabbi offer a prayer as "a leader in the Jewish community."

Loren Jacobs, who led a prayer at a Detroit campaign rally on Monday, was stripped of his rabbinic ordination in 2003 after being found guilty of libel.

“Jacobs was stripped of his rabbinic ordination by the UMJC in 2003, after our judicial board found him guilty of libel,” according to Monique Brumbach, a spokeswoman for the Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations.

The final pre-election Reuters/Ipsos/University of Virginia Center for Politics state-level polls of this election cycle shows Democratic candidates leading for the Sunshine State’s high-profile gubernatorial and Senate contests, while the open-seat Senate race in Arizona and the battle for the open Kansas governorship are effectively tied.

These are the second Reuters/Ipsos/UVA Center for Politics polls in Arizona and Florida, and the first poll in Kansas.

New polls: Democrats lead marquee Florida races; Arizona Senate, Kansas governor effectively tied

Amazing number of race within the margin of error and all have questionable likely voter models.

In-person voter fraud is an aberration, rare as hens teeth...voter suppression is widespread and is not a bug, but a feature.

What are you gonna do, take it to the Supreme Court?
bbqkink said @ 2:28am GMT on 1st Nov
Well sorry to say that is the only place you can take it. The only piece of optimism is that this court has not been tested. There may be a move to slightly rebalance the court...Roberts could be a swing vote on some issues. It seems he has great pride in "His" Court.

I wouldn't hold my breath.

Documents expose Trump border deployment as political stunt

U.S. military assessment documents leaked to him that show a stark contrast with the racist panic Donald Trump is trying to whip up ahead of the 2018 election.

"nonetheless recast as a Trump supporter."

Nobody has called him a Trump supporter. as a mater of fact it has already been pointed out he wasn't. The reason this murder didn't like Trump...even after Trump professed his Nationalist Bonafides The killer didn't believe him (Imagine that)

The point is that man killed all of those people because he believed we were being invaded along our southern border. a completely false construct based on nothing but lies by Trump for the sole purpose of ginning up the racist in his base trying to win an election. To bad the killer chose to believed that lie.

It doesn't mater if Trump is a racist or if these to were swapping spit or if they hated each other.
