Big Picture. The “happiness index” is subtle — the economy may be improving but if health is declining, if students are in a funk over debt, if the elderly are in despair over health debt, and so on, there is an angst across the land that the President must acknowledge. Impeachment is off the table. Net net: Facebook banning white nationalists and Chicago letting off a black celebrity for a major fake news hate crime atrocity, are national mood changers. Pissed off white males, along with pissed off blacks, students, elderly, and gun-totting moms, are going to push the President over the top. Down-ticket is still a mess. As of today, Independents, Libertarians, Greens, and others don’t have any traction at all AND Republicans are worried about being labeled the party of the 1%.
Creepy “Uncle Joe” Biden plummets as he is outed for being a creep, what no one has dared say yet is that he may be a Pope-approved pedophile.

As America gets closer to the 2020 presidential election, everyone wants to know, “Who will run?” But there’s another important question to ask: “Who will turn out to vote?” There’s a gap in voter turnout between white people and people of color—a gap that has an impact on election outcomes and on our democracy. So where does this turnout gap come from? Who votes, who doesn’t vote, and why?

Big Picture. Trump refuses to engage the 73% that did not vote for him, relying on doing more of what he did last time with no new thinking, he could still lose to the right team with the right message — no one now running can lead that team or deliver that message. Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump continue to be huge negatives as long as they remain employed in the White House with security clearances. Trump’s continued engagement in foreign wars and support for Zionist Israel could reduce his base but be partially offset by “Jexodus” (Jews leaving Democrats). Trump is breaking the bank on defense (which is 50% waste and cannot win wars, even veterans see this as criminally insane). Patrick Buchanan is emerging as a giant voice for America’s heartland. The fight will be between nationalist populism and globalist populism — between hold the line (keep our values) and anything goes (let them all in). Trump’s tagging of the Democrats as crazy socialists is working. Kamela Harris is early leader, could end up as VP to Hickenlooper. Biden-Adams is so luducrous as to inspire pity for Biden. Democratic civil war (progressives versus moderates) could favor Trump if he broadens his outreach beyond his base — if Trump presses for #UNRIG he unifies and mobilizes. Who is blocking this in the White House? The enemy within — and Trump’s fear of losing.

Is AIPAC in Violation of Federal Election Law?
While the Founding Fathers did not specify in Article VI that any elected member of Congress should not ‘be bound…’ to another country, any Court in the land will validate that Constitutional intent was that loyalty ‘be bound by oath or affirmation’ solely to the United States.
According to Supreme Court Associate Justice Joseph Story (1812-1845) that those sworn in were “conscientiously bound to refrain from all acts inconsistent”. During the American Revolution, General George Washington required all officers to subscribe to an oath renouncing any allegiance to King George III and pledging their fidelity to the United States.

Comment: President Trump has ignored blacks, Latinos, suburban women, and Independents. Governor John Hickenlooper is the single best challenger — if Cynthia McKinney joined either Trump or Hickenlooper at VP she would be the kingmaker. Kamela Harris is a flake and will not go the distance. However, as Wayne Jett points out, once Barr and Huber get going, the FISA disclosures should led to a decimation of Democratic leadership in the House, and perhaps the fall of the UK Government. Add 9/11 disclosure and most incumbents are vulnerable.

2020 Elections: Shades Of 1972
Authored by Tim Donner via Liberty Nation,
Eerie parallels between 1972 and 2020 presage an interesting outcome…
As we face the presidential election next year, consider the following political landscape: a Republican president reviled by the left and the media; the corresponding growth of a radical, collectivist resistance; and a Democratic Party blinded by hate, overcome by nonsensical policy prescriptions driven purely by emotion, and consequently prepared to nominate a far-left candidate for president. And somehow believing such a candidate could take down a despicable president elected by a previously silent majority.

Some Noncitizens Do Wind Up Registered To Vote, But Usually Not On Purpose
About five years ago, immigration attorneys started contacting Pennsylvania election officials to report that many of their clients had gone to get a driver’s license and, a few weeks later, received a voter registration card in the mail.
Sundrop Carter, executive director of the Pennsylvania Immigration and Citizenship Coalition, says it was especially disturbing for immigrants who were trying to become citizens.
