U.S.-Elections: Will the Worst Win?

Most recent polls place Trump and Hillary tied or nearly evenly matched, and the result could be settled in the key States.

There is a conspiracy attempting to push Donald Trump into the White House.

It escalated after several consecutive surveys showed no hopeful victory for him on November 8th.

The Federal Bureau of investigation (FBI) clearly is at play, next to sectors of the Department of Justice that are following suit.

Confronted with that reality, key figures within the Democratic Party, including acting President Barack Obama, are overtly striving to stop this contingency.

Most recent polls place Trump and Hillary tied or nearly evenly matched, and the result could be settled in the key States.

Was this perspective looming in most media and experts?

No, they bent on Trumps gradual and continued retreat consolidated after the debate that pitted them last October.

Now, out of the blue surfaced new e-mails having unfavorable content for Hillary.

At the same time, also peculiar, were found sensitive elements in the mobile of the former husband of a close aide of the Democratic candidate.

That was a game changer on the polls, until this Tuesday, "a survey of the Remington Group gave Trump a four-point lead over Hillary".

Hours later, The Washington Post and ABC took this difference to 1% in favor of real estate Tycoon.

Trump wrote in his Twitter account:

"The Washington Post poll made me go up 12 points in a week, precisely when the trickster Hillary exploded."

What he said was mixed with another meaningful curiosity.

The statements of FBI director, James Comey, about the finding of several confidential e-mails on Clinton’s cellphone from Anthony Weiner, the husband of Huma Abedin.

Who is she? The right arm of the Democratic presidential candidate.

Her former husband, Weiner is under investigation for allegedly sending "suggestive" photos to a minor.

But there was an interesting detail to consider when it comes to digging up the truth.

Abedin said on Friday that he "had no idea" how the emails ended up on her husband phone, “who is going through the divorce”.

FBI director wrote on Friday a letter to several senators to inform them what they called the curious discovery.

Both contending teams accelerated their tasks, while States considered favorable to Democrats so far are now considered "battlefronts".

CNN granted Hillary 340 votes for the Electoral College, that is, 70 over the necessary to be elected, while his rival had around 130.

But with new polls, the Democratic candidate only had 272 electoral votes. His Republican contender would have 179 electoral votes, with 87 "in between".

180 degree turn, exactly following the suspicious events that triggered it.

The question rises, would this perhaps be a variant of electoral coup in the United States?

An AFP journalist, Jerome Cartillier, wrote on Tuesday that this week Obama would be devoted almost exclusively to "hunt votes in favor of his former Secretary of State".

The President’s message reads plainly: do it for me, when at the end of his term exhibits what Cartillier calls "a strong popularity".

A comment of the latter anticipates that in his coming domestic tour, the President will strongly praised Hillary and will dart sharp criticism against Trump.

Weeks earlier, recalled the AFP correspondent, joined the black community in the mobilization in favor of the Democratic candidate.

"I would consider a personal insult, after the historic participation in 2008 and 2012, in particular in the heart of the black community, if this community is not moved for this election," he stressed.

A Professor of political science at Princeton University, Julian Zelizer, told the press: "Obama is aware, as well as Hillary’s campaign team, that the Democratic candidate" does not raises overflowing enthusiasm".

Then he said, she knows an electoral victory needs a strong mobilization in her favor by women, young people, blacks, and Hispanics.

Therefore, explained, Obama repeated that the black community should participate in the election, but a fact tumbles over his wishes.

On Wednesday, during a radio show, the head of the White House quoted data from the early voting that took place a few days back.

"I’ll be honest with you. The Latino vote is high. The votes in general are high. But the black vote, right now, is not as solid as it should."

Perhaps this clarifies that, even when it’s not the first time a President is set on a campaign for his succession, the intensity of Obama’s involvement "has no prior equivalent in recent history".

Amid this hectic panorama, hours away from the general elections, the FBI landed a new blow on Hillary’s candidacy.

What did she do now? Published data on a thorny case of Bill Clinton’s Presidency, which has sparked more outrage among Democrats.

She published 129 pages of documents related to a survey of year 2001, the last year in the Clinton administration.

Only a week away from November 8 elections, where Hillary runs for the Presidency.

The documents approach the Marc Rich case, charged with repeated tax evasion pardoned by Bill Clinton, the last day of his presidential mandate, a controversial fact 15 years ago.

The investigation of this amnesty was suspended in 2005 with no charges pressed against the former President.

Observers recalled that the publication of these documents takes place after the FBI chairman, James Comey, announced on October 28th the investigation on new e-mails from Hillary’s private server.

The latter, as it’s known, made significantly thorny the path of the former first lady into the White House.

Plenty of material for another dark story regarding how truly democracy works in this great country.

The survey conducted among 1,182 likely voters also showed that 46 percent of respondents considered the Republican more honest and trustworthy, versus 38 percent who chose their opponent; one month ago they appeared tied in that section.

The new numbers are recorded a few days after the FBI Director James Comey, send a letter to the House of Representatives to announce the reopening of the investigation on the use that Clinton made of a private e-mail server.

Such news aroused the rejection of the democratic formation and even supporters of Trump, by considering that they are seeking to influence the outcome of November 8 elections.

Trump Worries about Progress of Independent Candidate in Utah

The presidential candidate Donald Trump attacked his contender Evan McMullin by calling him a ''puppet'' and with accusations of endangering the Republican nomination, in case the independent wins in the state of Utah.

In an interview last night on Fox News, Trump said that losing in Utah would have a 'devastating impact' for his aspirations, pointing to the intense campaign McMullin carries out in this State, a Republican who decided to run for the elections independently.

Given the results of some polls, the former CIA agent is very close to Trump in this area of the country, where McMullin was born.

According Dan Jones' survey, the New York billionaire advances in Utah with 30 percent of preferences, while McMullin follows him closely with 29, and Hillary Clinton with 25.

According to Rasmussen's, Clinton is ahead with 28 percent, the Emerson College's poll gives McMullin as the winner with 31 percent, ahead Trump with 27 and Clinton with 24, results that justify the reaction of real estate magnate on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, Evan McMullin answered to Trump's attacks through his Twitter account.

'If you've never heard of me, it is because while you were harassing women in beauty contests, I was fighting the terrorists abroad', McMullin wrote.

Colin Powell Says He’ll Vote for Hillary Clinton

Colin L. Powell, the Republican former secretary of state, said on Tuesday that he planned to vote for Hillary Clinton for president as he condemned her rival, Donald J. Trump, at an event on Long Island.

Speaking before the Long Island Association, a trade group that frequently hosts political figures, Mr. Powell divulged his intentions come Election Day.

“I am voting for Hillary Clinton,” he said, according to Matthew Cohen, a spokesman for the association. Mr. Powell went on to praise Mrs. Clinton for her skills as a leader and her experience.

Paule Pachter, a Long Island Association board member, said that Mr. Powell was blunt.

“He said he would support Hillary Clinton and he also elaborated on several reason why he felt that Donald Trump was not the right candidate,” he said. “He spoke about his inexperience, he spoke about the messages that he’s sending out every day to his supporters, which really paints our country in a negative light across the globe with all our allies.”

The comments were a change from Mr. Powell’s tone in hacked emails from his inbox that were made public in September. In the emails, Mr. Powell criticized Mr. Trump but also expressed bitterness at Mrs. Clinton for repeatedly pointing to Mr. Powell’s email habits to explain away her own use of a private email server while she ran the State Department.

Mr. Powell’s comments make him the latest member of the Republican foreign policy and national security establishment to openly condemn his party’s nominee, and to say that Mrs. Clinton is the preferred choice.

But Mrs. Clinton came under harsh attack on Tuesday from Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former New York mayor, who echoed in more pointed language Mr. Trump’s recent assertions that Mrs. Clinton should be jailed.

“When I see her, I see her in an orange jumpsuit,” Mr. Giuliani, a former United States attorney, said on a Philadelphia talk radio station, WPHT. “I’m sorry, or at least a striped one. I’d have prosecuted her a year ago and probably convicted her by now.”

Fascist Trump Labels Venezuela and Cuba 'Oppressive'

The presidential candidate said that a Trump administration would seek to change the Maduro and Castro governments.
 

"With a victory in November everything will change, that change includes standing in solidarity with the suffering of the people of Cuba and Venezuela against the oppression of the Castro and Maduro regimes," Trump said referring to Cuban President Raul Castro and Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

His latest remarks come at a time when the left-wing Venezuelan government is facing a new round of attacks from the right-wing dominated National Assembly.

Months-long tensions became full-blown confrontation when lawmakers Sunday passed a declaration that the government had broken constitutional order after election authorities suspended a recall referendum against Maduro due to a series of irregularities on the part of the opposition.

On Tuesday the assembly voted to move forward with impeachment proceedings, despite the fact that a dialogue between the government and the opposition is to take place on Sunday.

However, unlike neighboring Brazil, where Dilma Rousseff was impeached and removed from the presidency in August, a trial against Maduro would be illegal given that Congress is currently in noncompliance with a ruling from the country's Supreme Court, therefore its actions have no legal standing.

OPINION: The Globalization of Donald Trump

Venezuela and Cuba are all-too familiar with U.S. meddling and direct and subtle attempts for regime change and support for right-wing groups and parties to undermine the leftist tide that Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez had unleashed in Latin America.

Trump’s comments came at campaign rally in St. Augustine, Florida where he also claimed that the campaign of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton corrupted the government.

Republicans and democrats, as well as progressives in the U.S. and the world, have warned against a Trump presidency while many have likened him to Adolf Hitler and historical fascist figures as neo-Nazi and white supremacist figures and groups endorse him.

Thus Trump’s comments on Venezuela and Cuba serve as further proof for how little he is in touch with reality. Bans on Muslims, saying Mexicans immigrants in the U.S. are “rapists and drug dealers” while calling refugees terrorists, which are Trump’s publicly declared policies and statements, are the very definition of oppressive policies that people need to stand against.

US-style democracy export arrogant, destabilizing, failure – Hungarian PM

Hungary’s prime minister has blasted the Obama administration’s foreign policy, saying it is based on arrogance and disregards reality. Viktor Orban said exporting democracy US-style produces instability, migration and extremism.

Orban, an outspoken critic of EU’s handling of the refugee crisis, voiced concern that a potential Hillary Clinton presidency would keep the current Democrat foreign policy that caused the problem in the first place.

“America supports the global migration processes. Instead of working on helping everyone to stay in their own home country, they perceive global population movements as something positive, or at least natural. Therefore, they do not want to stop but manage this migration process. The Democrats and Hillary Clinton are the managers,” he told German newspaper Passauer Neue Presse in the wake of his visit to Bavaria.

He added that the policy of toppling undemocratic governments in the Middle East, which was pursued under both Republican President George W. Bush and Democrat Barack Obama, simply does not work.

“America believes in the exportation of democracy. This sounds good; however, wherever it has been tried, entire regions often became destabilized, the consequences of which are suffering, death and migration. Additionally, often anti-democratic, extremist forces rose to power as a result of the free elections.

“Believing in the democracy export is arrogant because it fails to take the cultural structures of the given regions into consideration. But whether you like it or not, it is the culture that determines the political culture. Donald Trump openly states this, while Hillary Clinton defends the policy pursued to date,” Orban said.

 
The PM is a maverick in European politics, who challenged Brussel’s plan for refugee resettlement quotas. His government called a referendum this month on whether they wanted the EU to decide on Hungarian immigration policy without approval from the national parliament.

The vote failed to score a necessary turnout to become legally binding, but of those who did cast ballots over 98 percent voted against compromising Hungarian sovereignty. Despite being invalid, the referendum gave Orban justification to pursue a constitutional reform to curb Brussels’ power over Hungary.

The prime minister sees the EU as sliding towards what the Soviet Union was to Hungary, imposing communist ideology on a sovereign country. He believes that Islamic and European Christian civilizations should be kept apart, since trying to force them to mix and reconcile is unrealistic and hurtful for the Europeans in the long run.

“They cannot mingle, but can only exist side by side. This is the situation in the Middle East, and also in Europe. Our perceptions of the world are so different that they lead to parallel worlds. This is not a political issue, but the reality of life,” he said.

“The political problem lies in the fact that people always live in the present. The scope of political planning is being increasingly reduced to the four or five years of a government’s term. Politicians tend to feel responsible less and less for what will be in 15 to 20 years’ time. In places where Muslims arrive in large numbers, the world will change entirely in 20 years’ time,” he added.

Critics accuse Orban of attacking liberal values and democratic freedoms in Hungary. He also stands accused of speaking against EU on foreign policy, including its stance on Russia. Unlike some other members of the union like Poland and the Baltic states the Hungarian leader doesn’t see Moscow as a military threat, advocates cooperation with Russia and considers the economic sanctions imposed against Russia over the crisis in Ukraine too costly and ineffective to preserve.
