If someone asked me my favorite Bible verse I would say Jeremiah 29:11. There would be no hesitation so Donald Trump recently declared that the Bible was his favorite book. He made this declaration while standing in the heart of the Bible belt. Some might say he was pandering to the locals but it was great to see some journalists finally challenge him and to see him respond with non answers and generalizations. Watch the clips and share your thoughts.

I have never been a fan of Hillary Clinton, but I do have respect for her. She has survived the Bill Clinton sex scandal, she was elected to the Senate and she is a former Secretary of State. She is a smart and shrewd woman. So to see her playing dumb during this email scandal insults our intelligence and it demeans hers. I am sick of hearing news stories on the daily about the emails. If she was sending emails from n unsecure server why didn’t someone say something during her tenure as Secretary of State? When they were receiving emails that had (dot. hillary instead of dot.gov) did anyone get a clue that maybe something was wrong? Clinton needs to come clean and simply admit it was wrong. Was it criminal? Who knows but we do know it is political. Does this disqualify her from being president? No but it will make the fight a little harder. This can’t simply be dismissed. It is a big thing but it is not the end of the world.

He talked about the Mexicans and he got away with it, and some even applauded his stance. He talked about former POW Senator John McCain and he got away with it, and some even applauded. Then he talked about Fox news anchor Megyn Kelly and the party clutched the pearls and he got away with it, and some even applauded. He simply can’t go too far. Trump has no filter and no off switch and he does not really need one. He is a product of his own toxic environment. He is angry and his followers like him. Those that oppose him are irrelevant to him. His words are too his people. You are either for him or against him, and if you are against him you simply don’t matter. He wears the cloak of invincibility. he is the epitome of the MC Hammer hit, “Can’t Touch This.” Can’t touch it but can it be stopped? Time will tell.
I am currently making final edits on my book so I must admit I missed this Hillary Clinton tidbit. A few days ago she admitted that a lot of well meaning white people fear the black man in a hoodie. So should she be applauded for her honesty? Would this be a non-story if Ted Cruz or Donald Trump made the same remark? Clinton feels she has the black vote on lock and comments should give black folks pause.
Desperate people will say or do anything. Mike Huckabee’s remarks about the Iran deal qualify him as desperate. He wants to be on the debate stage next week and he will say anything in an effort to become a part of the conversation. Watch the clip and share your thoughts.
“Our father, Donald J. Trump is a true visionary and a great mentor,” Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump said in the statement. “He is a brilliant negotiator with a proven track record of getting things done. Most importantly, he is an incredible dad and role model. He raised us to work hard and strive for excellence in all that we do.”
No one is questioning Donald Trump’s parenting style. Insults a war hero, tells a packed house and millions watching the personal phone number of another candidate and calls illegal immigrants “murderers and rapist”. Might be Father of the Year but will never be President of the United States.
Talk is cheap and we know politicians will say anything to get elected. At the NetRoots convention a boisterous crowd in the audience tried to get Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders to declare Black Lives Matter, but they would not just say that O’Malley said Black Lives Matter, White Lives Matter and All Lives Matter and this enraged the crowd, but did they really think either of them would make a racial declaration? The Democrats really don’t think they have to do much or say much to get the black vote. They are not going to bend over backward seeking something they already think they have. Blacks came out in record numbers for President Obama. In 2008 we made history and in 2012 we did it again. There was a collective sense of pride, but 2016 is a totally different animal. Hillary Clinton (heir apparent), Bernie Sanders (radical socialist) and Martin O’Malley (Smiley). There are other Democrats but no one among them is going to create the Obama level of enthusiasm. So what are the choices on the other side: Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, Rick Perry, Ben Carson, Chris Christie and a bunch of other names that don’t come to mind. Each voter has to make a choice and we have the next year to watch and listen to all the candidates and determine what candidate can do more than repeat a hashtag.
Donald Trump is an arrogant tough talking loudmouth. He is thin skinned and will attack anyone that crosses him. His blunt talk has been cheered by many, but today he might have let his mouth talk him into a fight he can not win. It is one thing to beat up and belittle the illegal immigrants, but it is another thing to belittle a POW. You can’t do it and most people with a modicum of good sense know it, but not The Donald. He thought it was going to just be another witty Trumpism, but it is not. A person who has never served a day for their country definitely has no right to question the service of someone who was captured by the enemy and lived to tell it. Trump is a know it all but obviously he did not know this is just wrong.
