Judging by the nearly simultaneous latest Wikileaks drop and the release of the ‘p’-word video of a Donald Trump private conversation with Bush family member Billy, Trump must be winning right now.
The establishment is feeling very threatened right now. Democrats, pollsters and the media are pulling out all the stops. It’s no longer ‘Trump can’t win’ but ‘Trump mustn’t win’.
Over the past week, RealClearPolitics polls have showed him sinking like a stone, statewide and nationwide. Nearly all of their articles over the past week have been vehemently anti-Trump. The tax thing runs and runs, despite the New York Times declaring Trump ‘The Comeback King’ in 1995. Last weekend, they illegally released three pages of his tax returns from that year.
It will be interesting to see if the LA Times poll shows Hillary Clinton in the lead within the next few days. As of today, October 8, her support has decreased by 0.6% in 24 hours. I have read anecdotally that the LA Times is ’embarrassed’ by their poll results showing Trump’s lead, which has continued since mid-September.
I had much, much more to discuss today, but Wikileaks and the ‘p’ video will be more than enough for this week’s post. (By the way, here’s a summary of the VP debate which Mike Pence won handily.)

Coincidence?(lol)—Notice How The Trump Tape Emerged On SAME DAY Podesta Emails
They must have had this little nugget ‘Trump Tape locked n loaded’ ready to go in anticipation of any Hillary Clinton damaging info released through WikiLeaks…….
The video shows the Access Hollywood tour bus in 2005. Bush and Trump are on board. He had recently married Melania. He and Bush are on their way to a soap opera set where Trump will have a cameo role. Trump is discussing Bush’s co-presenter on Access Hollywood. Trump tells Bush how much he fancied the woman, who rebuffed his advances, and made a general reference to ‘p’ in seduction:
The Daily Caller has more on the story:
The woman Donald Trump said he tried to seduce in 2005 has been identified as Nancy O’Dell.
In recording obtained by The Washington Post Friday, the Republican nominee confides to Billy Bush during a bus ride to the set of “Days of Our Lives” that he attempted to sleep with O’Dell by taking her furniture shopping, but she denied him because she was married …
O’Dell left “Access Hollywood” in 2009 — she was Bush’s co-host at the time of the incident — and is the current co-host of “Entertainment Tonight.” She is married to Keith Zubchevich.
Bush also left Access Hollywood and joined the Today show at NBC earlier this year. The New York Post‘s Page Six reports that he is:
“horribly embarrassed” by the Donald Trump tape — while TV insiders are tittering that it must have been leaked by staffers on his former show “Access Hollywood.”
As Today is the long-running breakfast show, Bush is more embarrassed about his ‘frat boy’ talk than Trump’s.
A Today insider told Page Six they will keep him. This is where he fits into the family:
He’s the nephew of Bush 41, and the cousin of Jeb and Bush 43
Cousin Jeb! wasted no time in piling in on Trump:
As the grandfather of two precious girls, I find that no apology can excuse away Donald Trump’s reprehensible comments degrading women.
Yet, Cousin Billy’s behaviour at Access Hollywood might have actually driven Nancy O’Dell to leave the show. In 2009, the New York Daily News revealed:
“The atmosphere at ‘Access Hollywood’ is like walking on a landmine because of Billy,” the insider dishes. “He throws tantrums and tirades and oftentimes for no apparent reason. It was one of several things that had Nancy at her wit’s end after 13 years” …
“Billy would go so far as to curse out producers for not writing the copy in a way he liked it, and would really go off if they assigned him to read a story that he felt was beneath him.”
I doubt that will ever see the light of day in Big Media. Let’s return to Trump.
Paul Ryan disinvited Trump from an event in Wisconsin. Warned people that Ryan would sabotage and stab in back. Wake up!
sickened by what I heard today.
Congressman Jason Chaffetz of Utah unendorsed Trump:
I’m out. I can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president. It is some of the most abhorrent and offensive comments that you can possibly imagine.
Speaking of Utah, Mittens was outraged:
Hitting on married women? Condoning assault? Such vile degradations demean our wives and daughters and corrupt America’s face to the world.
But how did the video reach the Washington Post? Page Six speculated:
Another source told us that: “There are only a few people who could have leaked this. The cameraman, who wouldn’t hold on to it. The editor, who also has no incentive to keep it and [‘Access Hollywood’ executive producer and close Bush pal] Rob Silverstein … They are the ones with access. There would be no reason to hold onto it from 2005. The would only [reason to] leak it now [is] because of Donald Trump’s bid for president. NBC is in crisis mode. They have to protect [Billy].”
But Silverstein told Page Six when asked if he leaked the tape: “I am the last person in the world who would release that tape. Trust me. Let’s remember that. No chance. Don’t even infer it’s me. I don’t know who leaked it. I have no idea.”
Silverstein also never took action against Bush on Access Hollywood, despite complaints from O’Dell and others. In fact, he and Bush are friends. Silverstein also partnered with him on The Billy Bush Show, a syndicated talk radio programme.
Bush family member friendly with ex-boss who has access to archives of tapes? Hmm.
Meanwhile, as GOPe stalwarts are criticising, uninviting and unendorsing Trump for saying ‘p’, Evangelical Protestant and Catholic leaders remain unruffled. The Daily Beast interviewed several, none of whom were withdrawing their support. They pointed out that ‘locker room banter’ is nothing compared to Bill Clinton’s treatment of women and the possibility that his wife might win in November:
The comments Trump made are gross, as his social conservative backers concede. But, to these Evangelicals, “grab them by the pussy” doesn’t sound quite as bad as “President Hillary Clinton.”
Trump said recently in a speech that, if he knew years ago he would be running for the presidency, he would not have said many of the things he has in the past. He apologised to his audience and moved on.
On the Access Hollywood video storm, Trump issued a statement, which says, in part (emphases mine):
I’ve said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more than a decade-old video are one of them. Anyone who knows me, know these words don’t reflect who I am.
I said it, it was wrong, and I apologize.
I’ve travelled the country talking about change for America. But my travels have also changed me …
Let’s be honest. We’re living in the real world. This is nothing more than a distraction from the important issues we are facing today. We are losing our jobs, we are less safe than we were 8 years ago and Washington is broken.
Hillary Clinton, and her kind, have run our country into the ground.
I’ve said some foolish things, but there is a big difference between words and actions. Bill Clinton has actually abused women and Hillary has bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims. We will discuss this more in the coming days.
See you at the debate on Sunday.
I hope that means the gloves are off. Channel 4 is providing the feed Monday morning at 1:45. I shall be recording it.
Now let’s look at the evolution of crude language, sex and the hypocrisy of the Left, including the Clintons.
In 1963, JFK was furious about a Washington Post article on the amount of money spent on a suite for Jackie at Otis Air Force Base. He peppered his otherwise eloquent conversation with a few choice words, including the ‘f’ bomb. It was a private conversation no different to Donald Trump’s other than in subject matter.
In 1975, Hillary successfully defended a middle-aged rapist whom she admitted was guilty. Fox’s Judge Jeanine Pirro pointed out that Hillary Clinton accused the 12-year-old girl of seeking out her rapist. That girl was beaten so badly by her assailants that night that she ended up in a coma. She cried every day for weeks after her testimony. Clinton made her out to be a nympho. She’s alive today. It sickens her to see Clinton on television. There’s a recent YouTube video of her being interviewed.
In 1998, the Clintons were in office. The ‘p’ word was used for the first time on CBS’s 60 Minutes:
I never thought I’d see the day when Mike Wallace would be offering the word “pussy” to the world of serious television news, but there it was.
It was Sunday, February 15, the day after Valentine’s Day, and Sixty Minutes was doing a background report on Vernon Jordan, Bill Clinton’s close friend and go-between to Monica Lewinsky. The report included extended back-and- forth verbal duels between Wallace, representing the inquiring press, and ex- Presidential Counsel Lloyd Cutler and former Democratic National Chairman Robert Strauss, representing the cautious and calculating White House …
Maybe Wallace was just exasperated and desperate to get something interesting going. I think it’s more likely that he planned it out well ahead of time and cleared it with his producers before he ever opened his mouth. In any case, at one point Wallace asked Cutler to comment on a Newsweek report on what Jordan and Clinton talked about when the two of them were out playing golf together, good old heart-to-heart buddies that they were. Jordan, it seems, had been very direct.
“Jordan said, quote `We talk pussy,'” Wallace reported. Actually he said, “We talk pu____,” because the network bleeped half the word “pussy.”
Obama read a book at the Cambridge (Massachusetts) Public Library and unabashedly said these words:
Gotta have them ribs and p**sy too.
After the TEA Party got started in Obama’s first term, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews used to talk about teabaggers, insulting honest Americans with a term referring to oral sex. This year, Matthews did not hold back on what he thought of Melania Trump:
Look how she walks. Did you see her walk? That’s a runway walk. My God is that good…I could watch that runway show.
In conclusion, Infowars’ — and London’s — Paul Joseph Watson says:
Any man OR woman who claims they haven’t ONCE referred to the opposite sex’s genitalia during banter is a LIAR.
I think this will fizzle the way the Venezuelan beauty queen tape did. It depends on how the debate goes.
The real damning material this weekend is in Hillary’s leaked private speeches and in the Wikileaks dump of John Podesta’s emails.
The Washington Examiner gives us a taster. In April 2013, the National Multi-Housing Council paid her $225,000 for a speech in which she said that having a public and a private policy on the same issues were essential:
“If Everybody’s Watching, You Know, All Of The Back Room Discussions And The Deals, You Know, Then People Get A Little Nervous, To Say The Least. So, You Need Both A Public And A Private Position [sic],” read an excerpt from the transcript.
One month later, she addressed Brazil’s Banco Itau, who paid her the same amount of money. She said:
My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.
In February 2014, she spoke to Goldman Sachs and Black Rock:
Clinton admitted she was out of touch with the “anxiety” experienced by people in the middle class.
“I’m kind of far removed because the life I’ve lived and the economic, you know, fortunes that my husband and I now enjoy,” she said.
The Examiner says:
The excerpts were described as “flags” from the Democratic nominee’s paid speeches as identified by “HWA,” likely an acronym for the Harry Walker Agency, which represented both Clintons on the paid speaking circuit.
The International Business Times points out her public and private policy doubletalk on Social Security:
Clinton on the campaign trail declared, “I won’t cut Social Security.” Yet in the email’s excerpts of her Morgan Stanley speech, she lauded a presidential commission that proposed changes that would slash Social Security benefits, according to experts.
She much prefers people in finance:
The email shows that in a speech to a securities law firm, she said “I represented and worked with so many talented principled people who made their living in finance.” The email shows her also saying that while she supports some efforts to raise taxes on the financial executives, “I represented them and did all I could to make sure they continued to prosper” …
“There’s nothing magic about regulations, too much is bad, too little is bad,” she told a Goldman Sachs symposium. “How do you get to the golden key, how do we figure out what works? And the people that know the industry better than anybody are the people who work in the industry.”
Another speech leak describes how Bin Laden was located.
What are really disturbing, however, are the leaks concerning socio-political policy. This one is all about the Germans and immigration. The Democrats openly acknowledge it is a disaster not just for Germany but all of Europe. The leak mentions German media promotion of the policy. Yet, they admit they want to try the same thing out on the United States. In any event, as one concerned American put it:
Behind closed doors, Hillary admits Muslim immigration is deadly. In public, she calls us racists for saying the same thing.
Just as bad is a speech she gave to Goldman Sachs about the 2016 presidential race. It is unclear if this dates from 2015 or perhaps earlier. Excerpts and a summary follow.
First, Lloyd Blankfein asked everyone to be sure they had no recording devices with them and said it was an ‘NDA’ event. Doors were shut before Clinton could speak.
Afterwards, Hillary began her speech. She spoke first about the likely Republican nominee. She could not have been more mistaken:
You are more likely to see a nominee who is a general-election non-starter … You might well see Scott Walker as the GOP nominee. Gentlemen, Scott Walker?
Then she spoke about the Left. She could somewhat predict Bernie here, but she didn’t realise that she was actually forecasting Donald Trump:
What we see on the left is way more disconcerting … a coalition of sub altern interests is forming that could, with an extremely weak Republican nominee, create an aperture for either a 3rd Party Victory or, in essence, an election inflection point where an insurgent candidate could actually co-opt (.) Take over (.) a major party.
Finally, she described the voters who would support such an event:
This coalition, a collection of generally under-represented, low social capital individuals has become increasingly networked and increasingly motivated. This group that our analysts are calling the ((Makes air quotes)) bucket of losers could not only be a significant force in the next election but (.) could, on an outside percentile, even win.
The last word on the transcript is this:
So, it was no accident that she called Bernie supporters ‘basement dwellers’. She knew what she was saying.
The latest from Real True News — dated October 7 — is that a Twitter purge is imminent:
TwitterInsideSource: We’ve been told that in the days before the election [this will be when Trump and conservatives are trying to use their social media strategy for the Get Out The Vote effort] there will be a stream of names coming in 24-7 for code-black shadow-bans meaning almost nothing gets out and re-tweets for what does get choked back as well. They say that we’ll be manning the consoles 24-7. Well, they actually said “attending” the consoles …
RTN: Thanks. Is there any resistance to this?
TIS: Oh yeah. Lots–but they fire you immediately if you speak up at all. They make an example of you and their NDA [Non Disclosure Agreement] is fucking air-tight. Plus they’ll file harassment lawsuits just to keep everyone else in line. I’ve been told I can’t even “quit on good terms” until after the election.
They have these T&SC ‘hall monitor’ women who are auditing us too. They check our logs each day. They’ve demanded all our passwords for all social media. It’s like the gestapo. I mean, really, it’s scary …
RTN: After this purge, then what?
PDS: This ‘purge’ removes people they don’t like from the conversation. Then, after the next administration can appoint friendly SCOTUS judges, the challenges will be brought and rejected. This will effectively dismantle the first amendment.
The administration will keep the banned Twitter users off the media treating them as a, well, you heard it, a basket of deplorables …
RTN: Who are you voting for in this election, if you don’t mind me asking?
PDS: [ long pause ] Hillary Clinton [ flatly ]
RTN: Really? Why?
PDS: If you think your vote will be secret with the digital voting machines . . . you aren’t paying attention. That’s all I’m going to say on that matter.
RTN: Thank you. I think.
It’s not just the alt-right saying this anymore. This is now coming straight from people who work in social media.
More next week.
In the meantime, please pray — or at least channel positive thoughts — for Donald Trump. He and his family must stay safe. For the sake of America and the world, he must win on November 8.
