McClatchey Reporter: Yes, Jim Asher Told Me to Look Into Obama's Alleged Kenyan Connection

He doesn't say that Asher told him Blumenthal suggested this avenue of investigation, but why would Asher tell him that? A reporter doesn't disclose to a much-more-junior reporter what confidential source is pushing a tip on him.

This is certainly a mile of confirmation for Asher's story -- many of the doubters, both the acknowledged Hillary supporters and the unacknowledged NeverTrump Hillary supporters-- knocked the story down by claiming "Well where's the reporter who looked into this, huh?"

First of all: McClatchy ran the story on their own former editor's statement. They would have said something if their investigation had uncovered the fact that no one at McClatchy ever looked into this.

So, the very fact the story ran at all strongly suggested -- more or less proved, for those of us not shaking pom-poms for Hillary -- that McClatchy had, in fact, verified this part of the story.

Second of all: Well, you were wrong, guys. Again.

But keep spinning for your gal.

Still vigorously spinning for Hillary: Politico, naturally, and even more naturally biased hack Blake Housnell, who plays stenographer for Blumenthal, and credulously relays Blumenthal's claim that he didn't push Birtherism, no, certainly not, he merely urged reporters to look into Obama's connections to Kenya.

What?

Housnell pushes this crap despite his own reporting disclosing the fact that two McClatchy reporters say they were well aware that Asher and Blumenthal were talking during this period -- and then Asher, just coincidentally, sent one on a wild goose chase to Kenya.

I guess, like Ahmad Khan Rahami's motive, we can just never know for sure.

I also don't think the love affair with blacks and Obama is anywhere near what it once was, most have written him off as their standard of living has not been improved.

So the idea that because Trump along with Hillary played this angle seems like it's not going to do anything in November.

If you could trace back all the news all the time from multiple outlets you would discover that most news comes from a single source who whispered something into a reporter's ear.

In some cases you might find two different sources who have some common connection.

All the news is orchestrated. News repeaters don't do investigations and uncover the news. News repeaters take phone calls from unnamed inside sources who are not authorized to speak to the press, but do anyway, and have knowledge of the situation and confide in the one priviledged very import news repeater before the source hangs up the phone and calls to the next guy on the list.

55 I watched an episode of Johnny Carson's show from 1974 I got from YouTube yesterday. One of his guests was that sanctimonious, hypocritical asswipe journalist Jack Anderson. In 1974, the Nixon administration was imploding due to the Watergate cover-up, and Anderson spent a good 5 minutes piously proclaiming how an adversarial press was necessary for the health of this country. Mrs. Muse laughed as I kept screaming at the TV "yeah, that 'adversarial' bullshit only lasts until you get someone you like, you pious prick!" I was consumed with ungodly rage.

On the other hand, Carson's last guest was Susan Sarandon, who looked like she was about 22 years old, so there's that.

He has single-handedly set back race relations in this country a hundred years. He has assembled an Administration full of race-baiters, incompetents, cronies, rentseekers, and anti-American panderers.

In light of everything destructive toward this country the sonuvabich has done, going after him because he may have been born a Kenyan is an awful lot like going after Capone for tax fraud, and disregarding all the murders and the rackets.

The only difference between the two is that the strategy against Capone worked to some degree. It moved the headquarters of his criminal empire to the inside of a prison.

Two possibilities for this,

1)
Obama knew it was something Republicans would look stupid going after so he played with it enough to get people upset and keep it alive. So the fault lies with Obama for not killing this issue.

or

2)
There was something there that he wanted to hide.


I personally believe in the 2nd scenario because if a politician can easily clear up an alleged scandal that may hurt them with voters, they won't risk keeping it alive.

But obviously at this point it's just a distraction and we should move on. Trump Pence should simply just repeat that Hillary brought it up first in 2008.

167 This is, yet again, Trump learning something from the Democrats that other Republicans should have learned decades ago: when Democrats accuse you of something, it's probably partly because they are trying to blame you for their own sins. Which means it shouldn't be hard to turn the tables on them, and hang around their necks the evil they're trying to hang on you.

This has been a staple of blogitry for years now: the left accuses their opponents of what the left is already doing. But it has remained somehow uncouth to call them on it.

neither is civility
Posted by: Anon a mouse... at September 20, 2016 01:19 PM (C9pBZ)

100% disagree with this.

Good lord, George W' civility and refusal to "sully the office of president" and fight back against the daily accusation of the left helped win the WH for Obama.
Of all the things one could accuse him of, not being civil is about as far from reality as it gets.

He has been virtually underground during the entire Obama presidency. He has steadfastly refused to comment on Obama's two terms, stating that he knew what it was like to be criticized as president and would not be engaging in it.

His mother has said more about Obama than GW has, in that she doesn't like the criticism he was receiving from Obama even after Obama won the WH.

It has been rare to even find an article about what Bush was doing currently during the last 8 years. Opening his presidential library and attending funerals of politicians, etc. is about it.

Posted by: BurtTC at September 20, 2016 01:28 PM (TOk1P)



Every fielder has a weakness (going left, going right, weak arm, whatever), just as every hitter has a hole in his swing. It's just something that needs work.

In your case, besides implying work on going left, you'd just needed to cheat left a little bit until you improved. If you have a strong arm, you can still go into the hole and throw someone out.

So your dad was off base.

NBC purports to have switched to Likely Voters, but if you dig you can see the Fix. NBC ignores its own survey and assumes that 2016 turnout patterns will mirror that of 2012:

"Given historical patterns and the relative stability of presidential voting, our working assumption is that the electorate in 2016 is more likely than not to resemble the 2012 electorate; we trust the stable patterns in the data more than self-reported responses."

As I've been harping, the one near certainty is that 2016 turnout won't mirror 2012.

New poll has Trump tied with Hillary in Maine.

Note: One CD has Trump way ahead, the other CD Hillary.

Trump therefor looks to get a sold 1 EV out of the state, with an upside of a possible total of 3.

Having people coach their kids is always problematic. A friend asked me to help coach his Pop Warner team.

Nowadays, perjury of course, depends upon what the meaning of "is" is.

I think that's a good idea, but one reason it happens less than it should perhaps, is people's fears, either that their kid will be molested. Or not given a shot. So they bias against other people's kids.


Honestly though, his son/my friend, was probably better at short than I would have been. Great at most of it, just not terribly consistent. Still, I should have at least been the backup. Instead, I got "stuck" in the outfield, because I DID have the best arm on the team.

Just read an article about this. Harvey says he has no involvement in this lawsuit,which is being brought by Diversity racing owner, Terrence Cox. He said Harvey wanted to start a Nascar team and was denied by Nascar because they won't allow black owners.

One problem. Harvey says it's a flat out lie, he never wanted to start a Nascar team. He simply wanted to expose underprivileged kids to Nascar and this Cox guy is using his name in his lawsuit. LOL.

The Cox guy in his lawsuit is suing Nascar and and it's teams for racism...including the one team partially owned by Brad Daughtery, a black former NBA star. LOL.

Cox says that all of the drivers in the Sprint Series are White.
I guess he has missed Juan Pablo Montoya, Aric Amirola, Boris Said, and past non white drivers.

Maine and Nebraska have taken a slightly different approach in recent years. These states allocate two Electoral Votes to the popular vote winner, and then one each to the popular vote winner in each Congressional district (2 in Maine, 3 in Nebraska) in their state. This creates multiple popular vote contests in these states, which could lead to a split Electoral Vote.

319 "I mean, everyone is so, so, so hyper-partisan now that an honest result and analysis is impossible."

I disagree. Internal pollsters get paid to try to be objective.

Here are my assumptions, which if I were a pro I'd charge to validate:

1) Black turnout, especially among black men, will be lower. Trump should get at least a smidgen more of those who vote than Romney.

2) White non-college will have a higher turnout and a larger R vote than Romney -- this was Mitt's big problem, as this is the largest cohort by far.

3) Hispanics and Asians will be a push.

4) Youth turnout will be down, and many of those who do vote will vote for the Pothead.

5) Trump's challenge is with White College. Many of the Women here are die hard Hillary. Between now and November Trump can keep driving up her negatives, to suppress turnout. Hopefully the Rs in this cohort come home in the end.

Put this into the 538 interactive map and most realistic scenarios show a Trump win. I expect at least 300 EVs.

333 Put this into the 538 interactive map and most realistic scenarios show a Trump win. I expect at least 300 EV

Good call I think. I can see the change in the eyes of the Hillary voters. They simply don't even want to talk about the events of the last 10 days. They freeze up a bit when they think someone is going to bring it up.

334 I'm no rocket surgeon but Hillary's brain connections remind me of the time a squirrel partially ate through the wiring harness on a Dodge Caravan I owned. All kinds of funky stuff happened and then it just stopped working.
It was really annoying because I had to spend $1500 to fix it but it didn't actually improve the vehicle (other than letting it run) or it's longevity like replacing brakes or struts or other mechanical parts would have done.

Yep... even if she shorts out again during the debate, the headline would be "Clinton Entertains Debate Audience With Clever Mel Tillis Impersonation"

340 How is Obama being born in Kenya racist?


Anything negative said about Obama is racist. One size fits all.Posted by: Yuimetal at September 20, 2016 01:55 PM (iFgwk)
****
How is being born in Kenya a negative? (outside of being eligible for president)

341 What's really suspicious is that the Monmuth poll asked questions about it on the same day, like they knew the birther stuff was going to be unleashed.Posted by: Make America Great Again at September 20, 2016 02:02 PM (Y7bZV)
*****They did. It was on the left's agenda for the newscycle.

342 Like Bush's vote in Texas matters. Besides, as Rush points out, there is only the word of a Kennedy who should have not said anything even if he did say that. Preying on old people is particularly sick.

They have gone eerily quiet about her on FB. They content themselves with ludicrous little cartoons about how E-V-I-L is The Trump. Unfortunately for them, he is the one giving NUMEROUS daily, thoughtful, substantive, and yet, rousing speeches, while they have to watch their candidate appear briefly every few making incoherent and untruthful remarks while looking like a fresh corpse.

347 I have long resisted the idea that NeverTrumpers were actually supporting Hillary, but there is definitely a case when you're trying to lay birther-ism at Trump's feet, claiming that Clinton had nothing to do with it.

Posted by: Axeman at September 20, 2016 02:48 PM (2mC6G)

348 Asking the reporter to confirm being sent to Kenya is hardly supporting Hillary. It is basic fact-checking and not believing any story without evidence because you like how it sounds.
