Why Tru mp wins Re-election

Trump Wins Re-election
Why

Before starting, the reader should keep in mind that I am neither a Trump supporter nor a hater or opponent of Trump in any way. But it’s been my observation that for almost ALL people it’s very difficult to comprehend that as a possibility (especially for the “haters”). That said…

It’s Labor Day weekend 2019 as I write this but it’s been at least since last January since I’ve been wanting to actually jot this down. Or, in other words, what you’re reading here was really being written about 2 years before the 2020 election; It just took some months to actually get it put down onto “paper.”  So this post is a kind of prediction  about the 2020 election made almost 2 years before it takes place.  It will be interesting coming back to this after the election.  But that’s still a long way away and a lot can happen between now and then.

So here it is.

Barring some major unforeseen change(s) between now (8/30/2019) and the 2020 elections I am confident that Trump will win Re-election and maybe will even win by a large margin.

“OK Google, play CNN Radio”
Due to a recent surgery I was forced to lay on my back for 5 complete days . Not fun. And though not really by choice, I used Google Home to listen to the audio feed of CNN on cable TV for ALL of one of those days. Well… at least from 8am to 9 pm. And this was not an audio “summary” of some sort. It was the actual audio of the TV broadcast. And guess what… except for about a mere 30 minutes the whole day was taken up by one attack against Trump after another. I was shocked and amazed! THE WHOLE DAY!

 

All I could think of was what my mother would say; “It’s not just WHAT you say, it’s HOW you say it.” To which I will add, “HOW” you say something also includes “HOW OFTEN” you say it.

 

At this point I urge you to read the following related article (called MeThinks) and then come back to this one.  That MeThinks article provides the foundation for this one and for my “prediction.”  If you don’t read it you may as well quit reading this one.

MeThinks<—- MeThinks article link. Click to read.

My conclusion is that how things are being said and how often they are said will alienate a portion of the voting population in a way that will drive a VERY SMALL BUT SIGNIFICANT population of voters into the “Trump camp.” Just a 1 or 2 percent shift of voters will be more than enough to give Trump a large victory. That would be an ironic and unintended consequence quite different from the intent of the CNNs and MSNBCs of the world. And I think the same is (will be?) true for those individuals we run across in our daily lives. That is, constant “bellyaching” won’t convert anyone and it may, in fact, have quite the opposite effect (in addition to being quite annoying).

Shakespeare would have easily seen all this coming methinks.!

You did read the related and required “MeThinks” article; didn’t you?

So that’s it. It will be interesting to come back to this article when the next election is held (in about 14 months).

Robert Mueller Same Old Stripes

Before you read this article you should probably read the first two articles about Robert Mueller:

Part 1 – Raymond Shaw Is The Most…

Raymond Shaw and Robert Mueller – Part 2

That said… take off your MAGA hat…  or put away your “I’m With Her ”  2016 campaign yard sign.  Because this article is NOT about Trump, or Clinton, or Democrats, or Republicans.  Try as hard as you can to constantly remember that this article is NOT about any of that.  This article is  the 3rd of a series of articles about Robert Mueller whose bizarre story goes all the way back to the anthrax attacks that occurred shortly after the plancs flew into the World Trade Center on 911.

 

Now we begin… From page 49 of the Mueller Report…

1. Summer and Fall 2016 Operations Targeting Democrat-Linked Victims

On July 27 2016, Unit 26165 targeted email accounts connected to candidate Clinton’s personal office.  Earlier that day, candidate Trump made public statements that included the following: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.” The “30,000 emails” were apparently a reference to emails described in media accounts as having been stored on a personal server that candidate Clinton had used while serving as Secretary of State.

Within approximately five hours of Trump’s statement, GRU officers targeted for the first time Clinton’s personal office. After candidate Trump’s remarks, Unit 26165 created and sent malicious links targeting 15 email accounts at the domain including an email account belonging to Clinton aide XXXREDACTEDXXX The investigation did not find evidence of earlier GRU attempts to compromise accounts hosted on this domain. It is unclear how the GRU was able to identify these email accounts, which were not public.

Unit 26165 officers also hacked into a DNC account hosted on a cloud-computing service XXXXREDACTED XXXX copies of the DNC databases blah blah blah

Now let’s think about this…

I think you’ll agree that in the above text Mueller is implying/suggesting a cause/effect relation between Trump’s joke at a rally and the Russians starting a hacking attempt to get the now infamous 30K Hillary emails

when, in fact, they had been publicly discussed by James Comey  and in the Washington Post over 3 weeks earlier!  In fact, it was widely known that Clinton had been using a private email server  since 2009!

Don’t the dumb-ass Rooskies read the Washington Post or watch James Comey’s news conferences or pay attention to the fact that Clinton and her aides were keying and sending out emails on their BlackBerrys FOR YEARS  while on TV at public events?

Mueller clearly attempts to imply a cause and effect between the joke at a rally and claimed hacking;  to try to deny that would be… well… you decide. And the suggestion of cause/effect is, in my opinion, perfidious and duplicitous at best especially when considered in light of what had been PUBLICLY disclosed about the targets of the hacks for weeks and even years earlier!

And one of those who disclosed the information, at his now famous news conference weeks BEFORE Trump’s rally joke, was a personal friend of Mueller AND was the Director of the FBI at the time!  Yep… James Comey.

Now that we know at least some of “the rest of the story” we can see that the Mueller Report is severely flawed. 

Are we really expected to believe that Trump’s rally joke was actually his version of flashing the Queen Of Diamonds on national television?

Does Mueller really expect us to believe that professional state hackers from around the world had been patiently waiting for years to have Trump signal them with a rally joke to tell them that…

NOW IS THE TIME TO HACK HILLARY’S BATHROOM EMAIL SERVER? 

Is that what we’re expected to believe?

Anyway… if you learn a little more about Mueller’s bizarre history none of this should be a surprise.  That said, read parts 1 and 2 about Mueller (if you haven’t already).

Part 1 – Raymond Shaw Is The Most…

Raymond Shaw and Robert Mueller – Part 2

The End???….Of the Mueller saga?  I doubt it

Whiteboard Tile Table

I like WhiteBoards (Dry Erase). I find them very useful for what I do day in and day out. So I had this idea to turn the table next to my computer “desk” into a kind of “WhiteBoard Table.” In my circumstance it would make life somewhat easier and I thought it would make a good, quick, and easy project.

After thinking about it for a few days and seeing what materials were available and suitable I decided to use plain white 4 inch tile of the type you might see as the “field” tile in a shower or surrounding a bathtub. The nice thing about these is that they are non-porous and quite literally have a “glass” finish which means they EASILY wipe perfectly clean. The only question was how to “attach” the tile to the table. I decided to try 2″ double sided carpet tape to “stick” the tile to the table; and I’m glad I did. It worked great and was simple and very easy to do. You might ask at this point, “How well does it adhere the tiles to the table?”   The answer… they “stick” the tile to the table really, really, really good and tight. And it made the job super simple and easy!

I used 4 inch tiles but if you do something like this you might decide to use a bigger tile or ones with some color (light color for good contrast with the markers). Whatever you decide you’ll find a non-porous shiny “glass” finish will  work best. Of course, one could buy some single tiles in a variety of sizes and colors and mark them up and let them sit a few days to make sure they easily wipe clean  before deciding.

Here’s a few photos.

One More Thing

Just one more thing sir. Would you happen to know how much
the Sum of the Reciprocals of Odd Composites is?

See the footnotes for links to the prior related posts that lead up to this one.


I don’t know how this happened but recently I was thinking about the whole “Math Mystery” thing which ended up being all about coming up with the “formula” (value) for the

Sum Of The Reciprocals Of Composites  

which I represent as Sc.  

 

That is, Sc, or the “Harmonic Series of Composites” (to coin a phrase)  
is simply the log of the Prime Counting Function!
That is,     Sc  =   ln(π(N))   or…   Sc  =   ln( N /   ln(N) )

Then it occurred to me that we now knew the following:

The Sum Of The Reciprocals Of All Numbers (aka the vanilla “Harmonic Series)
i
s  equal to ln(N)  which I will represent as Sn.  So…

Sn = ln(N)

and The Sum Of The Reciprocals Of The Odd Numbers, as represented by So,
is 1/2  of the The Sum Of The Reciprocals Of The All Numbers.  That is

So  =  Sn / 2
Or
So = ln(N) / 2

And the Sum Of The Reciprocals Of Just The Primes  is ln( ln(N) )
As I represent by  Sp.   

So,  the Sum Of The Reciprocals Of The Odd Composites  as represented by
Soc      should be “All of the Odd reciprocals  minus all of the Prime reciprocals

Soc  = So  – Sp

Soc  =  ln(N)/2   –  ln(ln(N) )

But using some “log arithmetic” we can rewrite the above equation as

Soc  =  ln(N1/2)  – ln( ln(N ) )                 

 

Using some more log arithmetic (See Footnote Log Arithmetic below) we get

Soc = ln(N1/2 / ln(N ) )                 

 

Or in English,  the Sum Of The Reciprocals of just the Odd Composite numbers (aka Soc),
is the log of (
the square root of N, divided by the log of N).
This is an interesting result when we consider that
the Sum Of The Reciprocals of ALL Composite numbers is

ln(  N / ln(N) ).


SOddComposites      = ln(  N1/2 /  ln(N) 

SAllComposites       =  ln(  N /  ln(N) )

                        

Who would have guessed.

Footnote on Log Rules:

1) logb(mn) = logb(m) + logb(n)

2) logb(m/n) = logb(m) – logb(n)

3) logb(mn) = n · logb(m)

Methinks

The consequences will be unexpected…Methinks

Act 3  –  Scene 2

Hamlet makes a cup of coffee with his Keurig. When it’s done he picks it up and walks into the den and turns on the TV with the nearby remote. As the TV comes to life a talking head starts to speak. As the talking head speaks, Hamlet starts counting; 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. In the background the talking head says the word “Trump…” and continues with a critical and hyperbolic diatribe. Hamlet takes a sip of coffee and changes the station on the TV. Another talking head appears and Hamlet again starts counting… 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and in the background we again hear the word “Trump…” and again accompanied by another tirade. The scene fades out and then in again and essentially repeats itself with minor variations. Over and over, as the scene fades out and then in again, we see the months (and years!) pass away by virtue of a calendar on the wall behind the TV as we hear Hamlet say…

too much, methinks.”

 

Now let’s think about the objectives of the talking heads. For the sake of discussion, let’s suppose that the objectives are to get the viewers of the “news” to believe what’s said and ultimately to vote in a specific way. The question is… even if the talking heads speak the truth, will the incessant anti-Trump tirades achieve those objectives, or instead, will it slowly but unrelentingly turn the population “pro-Trump” (even if at a relatively low rate). Or to say it another way,

Will there be unexpected consequences?

 

Before answering the above question, we might want to look back on the 2016 election and the events leading up to it. These “events” included, in case you’ve forgotten, incessant anti-Trump news coverage. And maybe most telling, are the results of the myriad of polls for many, many months leading up to the election.

The principles talked about above can be extended to “real life” and interpersonal relationships; especially as applied to the times we “talk politics” with others.  If what I say is too much and way too often then I may well convince you to have an opinion (and actions) opposite of mine… even if you were initially inclined to agree with me.   You may well be inclined to say “the lady doth protest too much, methinks.”  and act accordingly.   This is a good thing to know.

Of course, we need to point out (if it’s not already obvious) that Talking Heads don’t make the

agenda or decide what’s said (or how many times).   They are merely hired mouths.

Also, when talking politics, we are all correct and brilliant all of the time.

 

Here’s a couple of links to follow for more background.

 

So remember… it’s not what you say…

It’s how you say it (and how often).

For Want Of A Nail

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JLA:_The_Nail_series

This just in… From Smerconish on CNN today:
“Did long-shot candidates just upend 2 more elections?”

Watch the video from today’s Smerconish (8/11/18).

 

 

“Manchik was roundly attacked on Twitter

as spoiling the Democrats’ hopes even though…” 

 

Translation:

If the alien from Pleiades hadn’t run on the Green Party ticket

then the Democrats would have gotten the CrazyWackoStarman vote

and changed the results of a close election.

 

Yup. It don’t take much;  and ya gotta love that Twitter thing.

Throwing Spaghetti — More Mika

Let’s see if this shit sticks…

Mika throws a plate of spaghetti against the wall.

 

Here’s why we can’t believe Mika.  If she really believed this stuff she would have a moral obligation to the whole world to do something about it and that would include,  first and foremost,  naming those close to Trump who she says know and believe what she says.  Surely saving the world would take precedence over hiding your sources as a “journalist.”!!!  Wouldn’t it?

 

That said,  do you really believe that Crazy Mika researched and came up with this story herself?  Or is she reading it off the teleprompter?

I Know Someone Who

 

 

“I know someone who spoke to Donald Trump recently …”

WHO IS IT!?   YOU CAN TELL US!    You’re a great journalist and well connected.  You can tell US  who told you this!  We all know you wouldn’t lie about such a thing  but we are all more than curious!   Come on, tell us!   OOOH WAIT!  I know!  It was  Ivanka, wasn’t it!?  I knew it!  That “feckless cunt!1  What’s that bitch’s problem?

 

“I WAS SHAKING WHEN I HEARD THIS!”

Well I’d be shaking too!  Just think of it!  Porn on TV in the oval office while most of his advisers are on the phones to 900 numbers.  Who did you say told you this story?  Never mind that… I’ve got to say that if it weren’t for brave,  honest,  and persistent journalists like you we would never be able to find out what REALLY goes on!  And for that we thank you.

She’s the new WoodStein!

That damned AutoComplete!

My text message was supposed to say “we’re going to have an intervENTION, NOT an intervIEW with her!

Raymond Shaw is the most…

This post is not about Trump. If at any point you find yourself saying or thinking the word “Trump” then please exit this blog and do not return. “Stupid” is not welcome here.

Now we can continue.

Last Night MSNBC aired its “documentary”/”Bio” of Robert Mueller. Here is a link to a copy that someone put on YouTube. It’s unknown how long it will remain due to “copyright” issues. I could not find any official copies on MSNBC.com. I encourage you to watch this MSNBC “documentary” in its entirety.

Headliners: MSNBC “documentary/bio” on Robert Mueller
Aired 4/15/2018
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOuESoEFigw

If you don’t want to spend the time then watch the short version below.

Hatfill Raymond Shaw video

With the above in mind, follow the links further below and read the articles and watch the videos. They are about the Steven Hatfill case; that is, it’s about the anthrax attacks in the U.S. After 9/11 and the FBI’s associated investigation in which an innocent man was targeted, and his life ruined, while the actual perpetrator was quite literally under their noses but was ignored even though he should have been the obvious and primary suspect if they simply would have followed the trail of those who had access to the anthrax!

The Hatfill case was arguably the biggest and most important case in FBI history. It went on for years until… you’ll find out why. And interestingly enough, the man in charge of the case and in charge of the FBI’s investigation was… you guessed it… Raymond Sh… I mean, Robert Mueller.

Down below you’ll find a list of links to a wide variety of articles from a wide variety of sources that discuss the Hatfill case and Robert Mueller’s association with it. I encourage you to take the time to read and watch and learn about something you lived thru but which you have probably forgotten. And learn how someone at the forefront of today’s events was in charge of the Hatfill/anthrax case which ended very badly. That “someone” was/is Robert Mueller.

Now here is the BIG question. Did you watch the MSNBC biopic about Mueller (aka Raymond Shaw in the parlance of MSNBC)? In the MSNBC “documentary” did you see any reference to Mueller’s association with the Hatfill/anthrax debacle? No? Hmmmm… that’s odd. I wonder why not? An oversight maybe?

And THAT, dear reader is the point of this article! Is it any wonder that people do not trust what is reported in the “media?”; or in this case, what is NOT reported!

Here is the list of links to articles and videos on the Hatfill case from a wide variety of sources. Btw, there are many other sources of information. I am sure you can easily find them.
