Why We Should Fear For the Future of the Republic

Filed under: Economy,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 8:36 am

From Zero Hedge, summarizing the nonsense:

– to summarize – we have hard evidence of the potential for an inappropriate relationship between Hillary Clinton’s State Department and The Clinton Foundation – after she had pledged that this would not occur. We have The Justice Department – led by Clinton appointee Loretta Lynch – implicitly blocking The FBI’s probe of The Clinton Foundation’s dealings (for, among other reasons, the timing could be viewed as “politically motivated.” We have a State Department Inspector General who is silent, and a State Department public relations person who has stonewalled so much, even the American press corps has grown frustrated… and the mainstream media on TV will be running stories on Trump’s poll numbers, his apparent ‘resignation’ to losing, and his “friends and family” economic plan.

This appears to be what I’ll call a Sandinista election.

As in 1990 in Nicaragua, there seems to be a pretty high chance that many people — on the left and right — who support someone other than Hillary Clinton are not inclined to tell pollsters who they favor.

If so, Election Night may bring a Brexit-level or greater “surprise.”

At this point, we can only hope things turn out like that Nicaraguan election in 1990, when hardened leftists took out a full-page ad for publication the day after that election in the New York Times (something on the order of “Congratulations, Commandante”), only to see the Sandinistas’ Daniel Ortega decisively defeated by Violeta Chamorro.

    What was that business they ran again?
