The campaigns are rounding the final turn and are readying to make the final sprint to the November 8, 2016 Election Day finish line. The television and radio advertisements are being stacked up with additional slots being purchased in the questionable battleground states. These include Colorado, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, Nevada, Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia, Arizona, and a few others with the leaning states displayed with stripes giving the side they appear to favor (see map below). This prediction gives Hillary Clinton two-hundred electoral votes leaving her seventy short while Donald Trump having one-hundred-sixty-three electoral votes leaving him one-hundred-seven short. Both candidates have their plans and campaign strategy to break the magic two-hundred-seventy votes required. There are one-hundred-seventy-five votes presumably up for grabs and both candidates will be giving it everything they have to get the required Electoral College votes to win and both will choose certain states to contest and some they will surrender to their opponent and will spend what campaign cash they have accordingly. The largess of the campaign cash of each camp could very well decide who will be the next President which may prove to surprise many people about which team is likely to be capable of affording to contest the largest number of states.
The immediate response from many people would be that Donald Trump has the larger war chest and will be capable of outspending Hillary Clinton and thus the advantage is in his court. The reality is completely the opposite as Hillary Clinton is excessively wealthy in her own right being worth an estimated at over one-hundred-billion-dollars while Donald Trump is thought to be worth a mere four-and-a-half-billion-dollars. This is probably a shock to many people, especially many outside the Washington Beltway. Apparently selling access to the United States Federal Government and favors from the United States State Department and allowances in trade deals is far more profitable than selling merely real-estate. Golf Clubs and casinos lack the glamor of high stakes political influence which the Clintons play at. They get paid healthily to give the same half hour or hour speech week in and week out. We assume that William Jefferson Clinton is far better and more interesting than Hillary the robotic device. We saw her style which was far amplified by the media with that smile smeared on her face as if held in place by Botox injections, not that we are making such an accusation. We will claim it did have an eerie similarity to the Joker from the Batman movies and equally frightening.
Still, Hillary Clinton will be easily capable of outspending Donald Trump by a factor of at least twenty to one which means we will be seeing Hillary Clinton campaign advertisements even here in Israel on cable as it is doubtful she will leave even a single potential vote escape her web which will be cast wide as ever possible. Trump will need to spend smart if he is going to win the White House as he is at a distinct disadvantage as he will be cash starved by comparison, not a position he likely is familiar with or comfortable with, but that is what he faces. What is even more frightening is that much of Hillary Clinton’s funding comes from foreign sources such as Saudi Sheiks; the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) n wealthy Arab NGO and UN agency set up to influence Western leaders, governments and corporations; George Soros, who has left little doubt that he has been influencing Western elections including getting President Obama elected for sure with a Democrat Congress which was capable of passing whatever legislation the Democrats desired; and likely other dictators and people who desire manipulating the world against freedoms and traditions which Americans and other Western people have treasured and are now watching it fade and quiver becoming shakier than a fiddler on a roof.
This election pits two megalomaniacs with radically different views of the United States against one another. Only one can become President and that choice will decide the direction of the United States and also Europe and the majority, if not all, of the free world. The coming challenge between two radically different societies, one with freedom and choice allowed and the other where every soul must surrender and walk a straight and narrow path under the cruel and suffocating cloak of Islam smothering all other religions and societal norms from every corner of the globe. One candidate will refuse to surrender and the other believes that she and her ilk will be capable of co-opting Islam once the Imams have slaughtered their way to ruling the world using terrorism and infiltration as well as simply reproducing until their mere numbers grant them control. The problem is that once Islam has spread through use of the United Nations and politicians more greedy than smart and use of the freedoms against the Western societies eventually simply slaughtering those who refuse to surrender and bow before them, there will be nothing left in this world but Islam and it will not be run by the progressive Democrats. Granted, many of these greedy politicians will live out their lives enjoying some liberties and may even die of old age but their children and those of everyone else will face this world of oppression which they will sell their souls and create. This is the election and should what President Obama began be permitted to run its course there will be no freedom and there will be camps where people either bow to Allah or be tortured until they break or die. There will be no future; no colonization of space, no music, no movies, nothing which we take for granted will remain. The election campaigns are about to enter overdrive and one will be overly financed beyond anything the other will be capable of placing before the people. If this election is bought with the money taken in through selling out the United States then the world will suffer the consequences. Our lives will never see the beauty of art, music, entertainment, or even bad commercials and television will be channel after channel of Islamic programming within twenty years and conceivably sooner. May the American people wake up to the potential for a coming horror show and choose well.
