Trump will not win the 2020 popular vote

But of course he could still steal it by winning the electoral college farce again. Which if it were in effect as it was intended circa 1791 hillary clinton would be vice president to trump, as she received 2nd most electoral college votes.

Trump again would not win the popular vote in 2020, as he didn't in 2016. Below are current state approval numbers for trump as of november 2018. That is if he even runs, especially after Mr Mueller makes his reports come soon.

Note how much trump's approval differences have dropped since january 2017 inauguration, in all states - the first % number (ie -12% for AK alaska) which is comparing jan 2017 with nov 2018 (+24 diff 2017, +12 diff nov 2018, current diff = -12 which is how much approval difference has dropped in almost 2 years).
Some Battleground states have been highlighted below. Note that the 3 democrat states of wisconsin, pennsy, & michigan, an integral part of the democrat wall, have returned to the fold. Pennsy nov 2018 has 46 approval 51 disapproval; Wisconsin 43 appr 53 disappr; Michigan 43 appr 52 disappr. Nice.
I know it's only one poll and has not been corroborated (golden rule of poll credibility) that I've seen, and still two years to go where lots can change (but a sea change?) but it's still nice.

The data is at the bottom of the link, some kind of a yucky slide show premieres it.
Currently 25 states have a lower approval rating and a higher disapproval rating. A few are tied.
With this kind of drastic disapproval ratings & Mueller coming it's a good sign we won't see the second coming of the mentally depraved hypocrite currently occupying the white house.

Rushanns responsible for government shutdown

Trump is using 4 high profile right wing news characters to buttress his govt shutdown.
Unwittingly to most of you, they comprise a covert rushann connection:

Ann Coulter published a column that called Trump "gutless" and said in a radio interview that she won't vote for Trump in 2020 if he doesn't deliver on the wall.
Rush Limbaugh said Trump had "gotten word" to him that he would either be "getting funding to the border or he's shutting the whole thing down."
Laura Ingraham: What will $5 billion in border wall funding build? 215 miles of fence, feds now say
Trump boasts of Sean Hannity's approval of government shutdown plan


Rush Limbaugh & Ann Coulter = Rush-Ann = Rushanns
Rush Limbaugh & Sean (pr'd Shawn) = Rush-Shawn = Rushawns
Rush & Hannity = Rush-Hans = Rushans

Then you have a 'french connection' with Laura Ingraham & Shawn Hannity = Laura-Shawn = La Rahshawns

Ye gads, damn rooskies have infiltrated everywhere.

facts on guns in 6 charts: A 2018 midterm report

Nice informative report from Politifact, sept 30, 2018

March 2018 Gallup: In general, do you feel that laws covering the sale of firearms should be made more strict, less strict, or kept as they are now?

67% More strict
04% Less strict
29% Kept as they are now (2018)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/zYz8EUp5tGrZqhQMan8DVeY9Uozw7RVSLrbFt1H2RMaCgaKSoiTCsoH0a1nRBJ4oXKILSWSbNPI4FBcZQZyjTjVQoZpWkwrp0RKLgWcEk4I3JtgBCqOPZ68X2-MrhLbji8GuC9gI

(referring to chart above): Public support for stricter gun laws has been on something of an upswing. Data from Gallup — over 18 years and using the same question — shows that support for stricter gun laws has risen from 47 percent in October 2014 to 67 percent in March 2018. That’s the highest it’s been in almost two decades.

Breaking News: Stinking Pigs can be sued (x post)

X posted from GCRA. Dunno, might not be acceptable to RKBA forum purpose, c'est l'vie.

Three parents whose children were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012 filed a defamation lawsuit against Alex Jones, the right-wing conspiracy theorist who has long claimed the shooting was “completely fake” and a “giant hoax” perpetrated by opponents of the Second Amendment.

Soon after they buried their children, many Sandy Hook parents started to come under fierce attack by conspiracy theorists who have said they are actors in an elaborate scheme to enact stricter gun control laws. The fringe theories still thrive in small forums online but have reached a far greater audience through Mr. Jones, the most vocal propagator {aka stinking pig}.

The suits focus on comments made by Mr. Jones in the past year. In a segment on his radio show called “Sandy Hook Vampires Exposed,” which aired April 2017, Mr. Jones highlighted an interview that Ms. De La Rosa did with CNN after the shooting. While they are standing outside a downtown Newtown building, Mr. Cooper turns his head to face her. During that quick head movement, Mr. Cooper’s nose seems to disappear — evidence, Mr. Jones said, that the interview with Ms. De La Rosa was conducted in a studio. In reality, the glitch is known as a compression artifact, a distortion that is common in video encoding.

A few months later, Mr. Jones was profiled on NBC’s “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly,” which brought up his past comments about Sandy Hook. Ms. Kelly also interviewed Mr. Heslin, who recalled seeing his dead son. “I held my son with a bullet hole through his head,”.
But a week later in an Infowars video, Owen Shroyer, who works for the site, argued that it was “not possible” that Mr. Heslin held his dead son because the medical examiner said he showed photographs to the parents to identify their children.
“Will there be a clarification from Heslin or Megyn Kelly?” Mr. Shroyer said. “I wouldn’t hold your breath.”
the next month, Mr. Jones replayed part of that Infowars video on his show. “The stuff I found was they never let them see their bodies,” Mr. Jones said. “That’s kind of what’s weird about this. But maybe they did.”

In a rambling 10-minute response.. , Mr. Jones {oinked} that his lawyers were very confident that the lawsuits were frivolous because his {pig sloppy} efforts to discuss both sides of the issue were misunderstood and misrepresented by major media outlets.
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/17/business/media/alex-jones-sandy-hook.html

Hahaha. Stinking pig say he's getting a taste of his own medicine. Observe, a worried pig:
PS: most pigs are pleasant & relatively smart animals too, smarter than dogs. Jones an exception:

Trump versus the 10 Commandments

This is especially for religious hypocrites who support donald trump, while ignoring his religious hypocrisy:

The Ten Commandments .. a set of rules or laws, God gave to the people of Israel
1 I am the Lord thy God, thou shall not have any gods before me.
2 You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything.


prologue: Why do I have to repent or ask for forgiveness if I am not making mistakes?" Trump
.. July {2015}, Trump said that he has never asked God for forgiveness but that he does take communion, which he described as " -- and have my little cracker, I guess that is a form of asking for forgiveness,
https://www.politico.com/story/2016/06/trump-forgiveness-god-224068

Uh, repentance is supposed to precede the little cracker, not be a simultaneous 'gift from god'.

False God: 2007, Donald Trump bought a six-foot-tall portrait of himself at a fundraiser auction, and paid with $20,000 from his namesake charity, the Donald J. Trump Foundation. artist Michael Israel the "speed painter" who painted the portrait of Trump painted the piece in just five or six frenetic minutes
he spent $10,000 to buy another portrait of himself in 2014. In that case, Trump paid $10,000 for the portrait. It was later found hanging on the wall of a sports bar at Trump's Doral golf resort.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/11/01/this-is-the-portrait-of-himself-that-donald-trump-bought-with-20000-from-his-charity/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.f1080dccb774

Who plasters their name in bold gold letters atop his owned or rented buildings?: beneath an oversized gold "TRUMP" sign at 40 Wall Street... it's "now known as the Trump Building. included leaving Trump's name on the buildings.

The Trump Foundation a scheme for siphoning off donations (inter alia) to pay for portraits of himself. The Trump University bilked hundreds of thousands of dollars from hopeful & dopeful 'students'.

4 You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God. {any doubting thomases?}
5 Honor your father and your mother. {sure, if they bequeath you a $million}
6 You shall not murder. But I guess talking about it ok, shooting someone on 5th avenue.
___________________________________________________

7 You shall not commit adultery. {sex between a married person and someone who is not their spouse}

Trump brazenly took his mistress, Marla Maples, on a family vacation in Aspen along with his wife, Ivana, .. a quote from Maples —“Best sex I ever had!” referring to Donald—while he was still married to Ivana. .. When Trump was dating his one-time mistress, Marla Maples, he famously posed as his own spokesman, “John Miller,” {said} he’d never marry Maples, and that he had “3 other girlfriends” at the time.
“Stormy Daniels” in the adult film industry, and said she had a sexual encounter with Trump at a celebrity golf tournament.. one year after Trump married Melania.
Nineteen women have come forward to accuse Trump of sexual harassment. The public allegations range from the 1980s to 2013, Many of those incidents reportedly happened while Trump was married.

9 You shall not steal.

At least 60 lawsuits, along with hundreds of liens, judgments, and other government filings reviewed by the USA TODAY NETWORK, document people who have accused Trump and his businesses of failing to pay them for their work.
Trump’s companies have also been cited for 24 violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act since 2005 for failing to pay overtime or minimum wage,... more than 200 mechanic’s liens — filed by contractors and employees against Trump, his companies or his properties claiming they were owed money for their work — since the 1980s

trump: Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/06/23/opinion/trumps-lies.html

Trump hasn’t apologized or backtracked on his statements. Instead, when challenged, he offers flimsy explanations and suggests he shouldn’t be held accountable
____________________________________________

religious hypocrite alert: Evangelical leader Tony Perkins in an interview said Trump got a "mulligan" on past behavior

narcissist trump won't lower himself to ask for forgiveness, but sure will accept it from 'the' evangelicals: Why do I have to repent or ask for forgiveness if I am not making mistakes?
Patriotism - the last refuse of a scoundrel.
Forgiveness - the last refuse of a religious scoundrel.

Teacher Accidentally Fires Gun; At Least 1 Student Injured

X-posted from GCRA forum.

As a controversial idea to arm teachers is pushed, and students gear up for gun control demonstrations across the nation, a California story lends unsettling context. Per KSBW, a teacher at Seaside High School in Monterey County (also 2013's reserve officer of the year for the Sand City PD and trained in firearms, per the Washington Post) was demonstrating "public safety" Tuesday for his administration of justice class with a semiautomatic handgun. But as Dennis Alexander was handling the weapon, it fired while pointed upward, sending the bullet ricocheting off the ceiling, Seaside Police Chief Abdul Pridgen tells the Monterey Herald. Pridgen says one student suffered non-life-threatening wounds to his neck from either falling debris or "fragmentation"—not from a bullet, per the Monterey County Weekly—and that class went on after the dust literally settled.

KSBW reports two other students also had minor injuries. "It's the craziest thing. It could have been very bad," the dad of the 17-year-old student with the hurt neck says, adding school officials never checked to see if any students were injured, and that he and his son's mother were the ones who noticed his bloody shirt and neck injuries when he got home. Alexander, meanwhile, who's been a reserve officer for 11 years, has been placed on leave from both the school and the Sand City PD. "I have concerns about why he was displaying a loaded firearm in a classroom," that department's chief says. Seaside's Pridgen tells the Herald: "We're looking into any violation of city ordinance or the penal code and we'll determine whether or not there are any applicable charges." KSBW notes California teachers aren't allowed to bring firearms into classrooms, even with concealed carry permits.

Not only this type of goof, but arming teachers will create a new type of school shooting: Bonking a teacher on the head & stealing his gun & going on a shooting spree with bullets smuggled in by the newly armed student.

Inside the NRA: Armed and Dangerous--An Expose Jan 1996

Inside the NRA: Armed and Dangerous--An Expose Hardcover – January 1, 1996
by Jack Anderson (Author)

https://www.amazon.com/Inside-NRA-Armed-Dangerous-Expose/dp/0787106771

The nra has been an insidious invidious assiduous treacherous duplicitous truth twisting organization for decades, & this book by jack anderson (dec'd) is as apt today as it was 22 years ago, with a few alterations due heller & mcdonald & the money grubbing political names have changed.
One approval (below) also listed a common theme which exists till today, that (circa 1996) the nra is 'rapidly losing the confidence of the general public'. Hasn't worked that way tho, eh?
Gets mostly bad reviews - consider the negativity coming from far right critics, likely answering the nra's call to arms to attack someone bashing the guardian of their sacred 2nd amendment.

I believe in 95% of the information and numerous sources that Mr. Anderson uses to make his case, which is this - the NRA is consolidating and perhaps increasing its political power in Washington D.C., but it is RAPIDLY losing the confidence of the general public.
Mr. Anderson has an objective view toward sensible gun legislation. He does not advocate registration, or confiscation, or any other ultra-radical anti-gun stance. However, he does expose the NRA for what they appear to be - ultra-conservative, ultra-right radicals, who are unwilling to compromise on, or even suggest sensible gun legislation and/or safety measures that would benefit the average citizen, without comprimising their rights, constitutional or otherwise.
BTW, I am a former member of the NRA and consider myself a conservative.
Anyone thinking about this ongoing gun debate will benefit from this book.
My review is from the audio version of this book.

Jack Kingston makes fool of himself on national TV re GUNS

Jack KINGSTON (R) on cnn last weekend vs david jolly (R): -- if you want to put it on the table you also have to tell me why when gun purchases went up did the crime rate go down? And neither of you have said -- no --
http://www.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1802/20/nday.04.html

Kingston went on to say that he hadn't heard of any reason whyfor the crime rate went down other than citing 161 million increase in the national gunstock between early 1990's and 2014 (read today).
As if putting over 150 million more guns in people's hands were the reason for the crime decrease.
We say BS! Kingston is either intentionally lying or is ignorant of the facts, I suspect the latter.

One correlation (reason imo) in the decline of violent crime & total crime from early 1990's to now is that the rate of gun ownership has also been declining. By about 30%, both personal & home gun ownership.
Another point is that the new gun sales went maybe half to existing gun owners:



General Social Survey (GSS) .. data show a substantial decline in the shares of both households and individuals with guns... 1973, 49% reported having a gun or revolver in their home or garage. In 2012, 34% said they had a gun in their home or garage.
.. personal gun ownership in 1980, 29% said a gun in their home personally belonged to them. This stands at 22% in the 2012 GSS survey. http://www.people-press.org/2013/03/12/section-3-gun-ownership-trends-and-demographics/
3) ... The Pew Research Center has tracked gun ownership since 1993, and our surveys largely confirm the General Social Survey trend. In our Dec 1993 survey, 45% reported having a gun in their household; in early 1994, the GSS found 44% saying they had a gun in their home. A Jan 2013 Pew Research Center survey found 33% saying they had a gun, rifle or pistol in their home, as did 34% in the 2012 wave of {GSS}.


According to all 3 polls above, personal & household gun ownership rates fell dramatically during the same 8 yr time period as when violent crime & total crime rates fell dramatically, ~1992 - 2000.
National gunstock increased during that time period as well, also to now, but is demonstrably shown that a solid portion of those guns went to existing gun owners rather than creating any increase in the rate of gun owners.
The clinton crime initiative went into effect in 1994, which also had an affect on declining violent crime rates, but wouldn't've affected 1992, 93, 94.
