BRUMMETT ONLINE: Hyper-partisan claptrap September 28, 2016 at 9:33 p.m.

Apparently Mojerky is ignorant about the release of polling data. Most polls done after the debate are still being tabulated and taken and will not be released until the end of the week; only a few have been released at this date. Reliable polling experts are telling folks this.
Meanwhile, mojerk is in error. Trump is NOT leading in the polls. He is losing ground actually.
Fivethirtyeight says this today:
"Every scientific poll we’ve encountered so far suggests that voters thought Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump in Monday night’s debate. In fact, some of them showed her winning by a wide margin — wide enough to make it a good bet (though not a guarantee) that she’ll gain in horse-race polls against Trump over the next week or so.

But so far, we’ve seen just two polls released that tested Clinton’s standing against Trump after the debate. They have pretty good news for Clinton, but I’d recommend some caution until we get more data.

The first poll is from Morning Consult, which shows Clinton leading by 3 percentage points in a matchup that includes third-party candidates — that’s a 4-point swing toward Clinton from the 1-point Trump lead that Morning Consult showed before the debate. In a head-to-head matchup against Trump, Clinton leads by 4 points, up from a 2-point lead before the debate.

The other survey is from Echelon Insights, and it shows Clinton leading Trump by 5 percentage points. In theory, that would be consistent with a bounce for Clinton, since she led Trump by just 1 to 2 points overall before the debate, based on FiveThirtyEight’s projection. But it’s hard to know for sure because Echelon has surveyed the race only once before — just after the Republican convention, when they showed Clinton leading Trump by 1 point.

Apart from these polls, the only other data we have is from the USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times and UPI/CVOTER national tracking polls, but I’d discourage people from paying very much attention to them. It’s nothing against the polls themselves — in fact, I’ve defended the USC/LA Times poll’s methodology in the past — it’s just a matter of timing. Each poll uses a 7-day field period, which means that only about one-seventh of their interviews were conducted after the debate. I’d wait a couple of days before making too much of these surveys — until they consist mostly of post-debate interviews."

Take your own advice Jackassott. Your Trumpelstilskin has got a nose that Pinocchio would be hard-pressed to compete with.
Vague threats and BS are your stock in trade Jack. And it's value is going down just like your main chump is.

Please don't call Rapert a Christian. It's an insult to Christ and his teachings. Rapert is simply a fool.

Trump, Clinton reflect on debate performances, return to campaign trail September 27, 2016 at 9:35 p.m.

And over in Trumpland:
(The Borowitz Report)—Plunging the future of the 2016 Presidential debates into doubt, Donald J. Trump said on Tuesday morning that he would not participate in the remaining two debates if Hillary Clinton is there.

Trump blasted the format of Monday night’s debate by claiming that the presence of Clinton was “specifically designed” to distract him from delivering his message to the American people.

“Every time I said something, she would say something back,” he said. “It was rigged.”

He also lambasted the “underhanded tactics” his opponent used during the debate. “She kept on bringing up things I said or did,” he added. “She is a very nasty person.”

Turning to CNN, Trump criticized the network’s use of a split screen showing both him and Clinton throughout the telecast. “It should have been just me,” he said. “That way people could have seen how really good my temperament is.”

The billionaire said that debate organizers had not yet responded to his ultimatum, but he warned that if he does not get assurances in writing that future debates will be “un-rigged, Hillary-wise,” he will not participate.

“I have said time and time again that I would only do these debates if I am treated fairly,” he added. “The only way I can be guaranteed of being treated fairly is if Hillary Clinton is not there.”

Jabs by Clinton, Trump go personal in first debate September 27, 2016 at 11:22 a.m.

Sadly for Trump, AR AG Leslie Rutledge stuck her foot in her mouth, wiggled her toes awkwardly, and sounded pure dee dum-bass hick as she stumbled repeatedly in her efforts to defend Trump:
ht tps://ww m/watch?v=WDKBBA_nwqc
In summary, Leslie is simply dishonest. Doesn't even know what constitutes evidence vs opinion; refuses to directly answer a question; but, she does channel Trump quite well. Lies come off her tongue like frogs hopping out of a hot skillet.

Arkansas representative arrested in Little Rock September 26, 2016 at 3:10 p.m.

From ARTimes:
"....unconfirmed report was that the arrest followed Walker photographing a police arrest or traffic stop about 11:30 a.m. I'm guessing the camera work might have included commentary by Walker.
The arrest was at 9th and Commerce Streets, KATV reported. Its report said Walker "interfered with a traffic stop."
They were booked at the Pulaski County jail on the misdemeanor charge and were making arrangements for release on $1,000 bonds.
Walker championed legislation passed in 2015 that gave citizens a clear right to photograph events that take place in public.
If Walker indeed was just filming the event then he apparently is doing what is legally allowed by the 2015 law. Also, it would mean a false arrest charge against the officers involved.

Facts and the candidates September 25, 2016 at 9 p.m.

Excerpts from LA Times report on upcoming debates:
Donald Trump says taxes in the United States are higher than almost anywhere else on Earth. They're not. He says he opposed the Iraq war from the start. He didn't.
Now, after years of spreading the lie that President Barack Obama was born in Africa, Trump says Hillary Clinton did it first (untrue) and that he's the one who put the controversy to rest (also untrue).

Trump spoke at a black church in Flint, Mich. When he started to criticize Clinton, the pastor interrupted and asked him not to give a political speech.
"The audience was saying let him speak, let him speak," Trump later told Fox News. Not true. In fact, several audience members began to heckle Trump, asking pointed questions about whether he racially discriminated against black tenants as a landlord.
When Trump released his child-care plan on Sept. 13, he said Clinton didn't have one. She did. He has often described himself as popular among blacks; the latest Wall Street Journal-NBC News poll found 7 percent of black voters support him.

Trump also depicts crime as rising and out of control in America's inner cities despite years of falling crime rates. He has said that black people kill 81 percent of white homicide victims, when in fact whites kill 82 percent of white homicide victims, according to PolitiFact.
Never in modern presidential politics has a major candidate made false statements as routinely as Trump has. Over and over, independent researchers have examined what the Republican nominee says and concluded it was not the truth.
Trump's candidacy was premised on upending a dishonest establishment that has rigged American political and economic life, so many of his loyalists are willing to overlook his lies, as long as he rankles the powerful, said Republican strategist Rob Stutzman, who worked against Trump during the primaries. "They believe they're getting lied to constantly, so if their hero tells lies in order to strike back, they don't care."
So the hypocritical Republicans celebrate the lies of their lying Hero and don't care if he is a liar. The Grand Old Psychotics don't even pay lip service to the truth any more. As long as the meme matches their belief, they don't care if it's true or not.

Arkansas requiring child-care facilities to seek intervention before suspending, expelling a child September 25, 2016 at 3:02 p.m.

Popmom - that was Justin Harris' daycare. It is easy to confuse the Bully from Bigelow with the Wretch from West Fork. Both are known for that scabrous pontificating.
