President Bill Clinton is correct as always; "He (Donald Trump) is saying he hates the same people that you hate." That is exactly what he is saying. How does a presidential candidate build his right to my vote on the hate of people? There is no policy there. Yet.

Oh, cute.

The Republicans have traded the Bush Chinese Dynasty for the Trump Communist Dynasty. 

See, the Bush Dynasty is based in China from the days when H.W. was ambassador and the Cheney oil ties of the Middle East. The Bush/Cheney dynasties relied on Wall Street companies. The Donald Trump dynasty is reliant on communist companies that the USA do not have as allies. 

Iraq was an oil war for the USA because it served the interests of Halliburton and an angry son after Saddam Hussein. 

If I were Donald Trump and wanted to make money hand over fist without the USA finding it, I would play quietly under the radar. No one would expect to find a USA company of any kind trading with anti-democratic countries for several reasons; currency unpredictability, unstable class structure among the people and a lack of disposable income except for the ruling class.

ie: Ukraine and the ally of Russia, Victor Yanukovych. The rarity of a USA company willing to be a partner to a communist government can be attractive to the oligarchs trying to find their fortunes among democratic countries.

See, oligarchs such as those in Ukraine had their own militias that became evident during the recent revolution. Trading with democratic countries brings new money sources into their country and into their own militias. It takes money to arm a militia to insure their loyalty and provide funds that aren't normally found in communist countries. Business relationships such as that are frowned on for very real reasons, including, potential danger to the USA. 

The reason the Trump Organization would be interested in trading relationships with communist countries is that in a short period of time one can leverage power as the sole source of whatever they were engaged in. There is also the outrageous monetary exchange rates that vacillate everyday and provide invisible profits when the exchange rate favors a strong USA dollar. It would mean nothing to pay lots and lots of rubles if it means gaining an advantage of power.

Ukraine is an easy country to play in. At least half the country have wanted to engage in trade with The West/Europe. As a matter of fact that was one of the reasons there was a revolution in the first place.

The American people don't need another Bush-like war. Who knows where it would go? Interestingly, "W"'s ethics lawyer came out to state what was happening with the FBI and the election was way out of line. 

The man who spent two and half years (click here) as the ethics lawyer to President George W. Bush has filed a Hatch Act complaint against FBI Director James Comey.
Richard W. Painter wrote in a New York Times an op-ed:
The F.B.I.’s job is to investigate, not to influence the outcome of an election.

Such acts could also be prohibited under the Hatch Act, which bars the use of an official position to influence an election. That is why the F.B.I. presumably would keep those aspects of an investigation confidential until after the election. The usual penalty for a violation is termination of federal employment....

There is a real reason why Trump is far less trustworthy than any other candidate running for President. 

We don't need it. We are still rebuilding the USA and then there is the national debt which Trump would run up higher than "W".

Hillary Clinton has no conflict of interest or any reason to wage an illegal and immoral war.

The American people do not need the growing uncertainty of what the USA will look like under a Trump administration. Scary.

One other thing. If Comey spends his days chasing emails for political advantages, there is a real reason to worry about the security of the USA. Hillary Clinton is not a terrorist. We know that for a fact.

NASA has released a very instructive time loop of the demise of the Arctic Ocean.

October 31, 2016

...“This older, thicker ice (click here) is like the bulwark of sea ice: a warm summer will melt all the young, thin ice away but it can’t completely get rid of the older ice: a warm summer will melt all the young , thin ace away but it can’t completely get rid of the older ice. But this older ice is becoming weaker because there is a less of it and the remaining old ice is more broken up and thinner, so that bulwark is not as good as it used to be.”...

Besides all the interesting facts within the NASA video, the video also teaches how Earth's ice is the planet's thermostat. When the ice flows out of the ocean into the north Atlantic the change in temperature to the Arctic Circle is profound and obvious. That cold water matters in cooling Earth. The loss of ice in the Arctic Ocean removes it's purpose and allows the lower latitudes to gradually become hotter and hotter each year that passes without the thermostat.

Intellicast High Temperature Forecast

This is November 2nd. Below is the map of the departure of temperatures from normal.

The Kansas City area is 20 to 25 degrees Fahrenheit higher than normal. That increase can be seen in some areas of Canada. Radiating from the Kansas City area as moving to the seashore the departure is five to twenty degrees Fahrenheit higher. Only when the offshore winds are at work do temperatures appear to be normal.

The higher temperatures of North American are directly related to the loss of ice in the Arctic Ocean. The less ice, especially the aged ice, the less coldness available to cool the oceans.

The methodology of the Iraqi military seems to work for them.

The Iraqi people should be proud of them. They have mostly conquered the most dangerous charismatic movement the world has experienced. This is a profound victory for the Iraqi military and the global community. The global community has an ally.

The Iraqi Army (click here) has entered Mosul for the first time in over two years at the start of a battle which is likely to end in a decisive defeat for Isis. The significance of the fight for Mosul will be all the greater for Isis because its self-declared caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is believed to be still inside the city, a senior Kurdish official has told The Independent

Fuad Hussein, chief of staff to Kurdish President Massoud Barzani, said in an exclusive interview that his government had information from multiple sources that “Baghdadi is there and, if he is killed, it will mean the collapse of the whole [Isis] system.” Isis would have to choose a new caliph in the middle of a battle, but no successor would have the authority and prestige of Baghdadi, the leader who surprised the world by establishing the caliphate after capturing Mosul in June 2014....      

They don't need the endorsement of the FBI.

When white supremacists (click here) are coming out in support of a specific presidential candidate, you can be sure that all hell has broken loose. It appears that at least one of the seven seals has been broken, and the nation's most infamous racist brotherhood is throwing their weight in support of the candidate most loved by hateful people. The KKK's official paper just supported Donald Trump for president, citing shared values and the importance of the "White Christian Republic" that was, according to the Klan's newspaper, what initially "made America great." Trump's campaign immediately denounced the support...

There is only one candidate for President in this election that is not fanning the flames of hate.

Do you believe this? Game 7.

Go inside the numbers (click here) and matchups that will decide Wednesday night's showdown between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians in Game 7 of the World Series, and then vote on which team will win at the bottom of the page. The series is tied 3-3.

Comey needs to resign or better yet fire him. There is no discretion in the department anymore.

There are going to be tons of information regarding the Clintons, they have been in office all their lives. This is ridiculous. Comey has compromised the country's election process. This was no mistake. His leadership is a return to J. Edgar Hoover.

Everyone can read about Marc Rich, none of this is a surprise. This book (click here) was written in 2009. March Rich never came back to the USA.

Billionaire oil trader Marc Rich for the first time talks at length about his private life (including his expensive divorce from wife Denise); his invention of the spot oil market which made his fortune and changed the world economy; his lucrative and unpublicized dealings with Ayatollah Khomeini's Iran, Fidel Castro's Cuba, war-ravaged Angola, and apartheid South Africa; his quiet cooperation with the Israeli and U.S. governments (even after he was indicted for tax fraud by Rudy Guiliani) and near-comical attempts by U.S. officials to kidnap him illegally....

It is called treason. Comey is acting deliberately against the American people to insure a specific outcome in the country's elections. Lynch needs to remove him from office. Democrats in the House and Senate need to act to bring about what might be called a gag order. This is anarchy. That is exactly what this is.

As far as danger within the country of armed citizens, the President needs to be aware of declaring the country under Marshall law. Governors need to be prepared for any outbreak in violence in their states. It is what it is and there are many, many legislators that have warned the country about the potential for such acts by citizens over the years.

There are too many guns on the street. Those are not empty words. Comey is making the burgeoning violence worse. He is escalating the reason for such acts by citizens. He needs to be put on paid leave and investigated. Such actions could spur him to be more dangerous to the country than he already is, but, it is called jail. He can leak to the guards all he wants.

The surprise tweet from a little-used FBI account (click here) came about 1 p.m. Tuesday, announcing that the agency had published on its website 129 pages of internal documents related to a years-old investigation into former president Bill Clinton’s pardon of a fugitive Democratic donor.
The seemingly random reminder of one of the darkest chapters of the Clinton presidency a week before the election drew an immediate rebuke from Hillary Clinton’s campaign — with its spokesman tweeting that the FBI’s move was “odd” and asking whether the agency planned to publish unflattering records about Republican candidate Donald Trump.
“Will FBI be posting docs on Trump’s housing discrimination in ’70s?” asked Brian Fallon....

This has happened in NYCity, but, Iowa?

Two police officers (click here) in central Iowa were shot and killed Wednesday in a pair of “ambush-style attacks,” the Des Moines Police Department said.
Police offered few initial details on the shootings, saying that the investigation was just getting underway, but they said both officers were sitting in their squad cars when they were shot and killed.
Authorities in the Des Moines area appeared shaken by the double shooting, which came during a year that has seen bloody attacks on officers in cities like Dallas and Baton Rouge, assaults that fueled a sense of anxiety among law enforcement nationwide.
“It doesn’t look like there was any interaction between these officers and whoever the coward is that shot them while they sat in their car,” Sgt. Paul Parizek, a Des Moines police spokesman, said during a briefing early Wednesday, before briefly choking back emotion as another officer reached a hand out to show him support....
