How Poker Explains Donald Trump’s Campaign

TEXAS HOLD 'EM POKER---03/07/05---A player peeks at their hand, the popularity of Texas Hold 'Em Pok

 

“Poker is a game of logic, luck, and psychological warfare, and Trump has imported its cornerstone tactics to knock his opponents off balance. This is more coincidence than design; the casino owner knows the house edge, so he’s not one to frequent the tables. But Trump’s political instincts are ripped from the poker player’s handbook.”

Our world has changed: Anonymity no longer an option

 

Did you ever wonder how law enforcement was able to link the Tsarnaev brothers to the April 15, 2013 Boston Marathon bombings so quickly?  One of the most important eyewitnesses to the horrific bombing never took the stand and never said a word to the jury. It was a camera. But Bob Leonard, the skilled photographer snapping 10 to 20 photos a minute with his Nikon that ill-fated day, likely gave no thought to the ubiquitous and invasive technology now becoming the norm.

I don’t want to see my Country torn

“We on the side of the rural traditionalists are bound by a moral code and the concept of “just war.” However, our reluctance to start a conflict ought not be mistaken for our inability to finish one. As the great Jackson said, once my sword is drawn, I throw away the scabbard.”

Civil War?
By Michael Hill

America in 2016 is a tinderbox waiting for a spark. The two sides have divided up nicely and there seems no room for compromise. The inevitable conflict, which draws closer with each passing day, will not be a strictly regional one as we had in the 1860s.

While there will be a regional element to it – meaning, for instance, that the South, the rural Midwest, and the mountain West will be allies – the conflict will be based more on worldview and race/ethnicity predicated largely on a rural-urban divide. One might do just as well to call it a general traditional-progressive divide.

News of this scandal quickly spread as bipartisan calls for her indictment came out of every political corner. In spite of this confirmation of a crime from the White House, Clinton’s campaign immediately objected, putting out a statement demanding that the emails be released.

When you know that the emails won’t be released, a demand for them to be released comes particularly easy.

While it certainly would be an amazing spectacle to see such a high-level political war criminal face justice, the likelihood of such a scenario is all but non-existent — and the White House has no problem admitting it.

Hilary is not some rogue state actor operating unilaterally of the system. All of her criminal actions have had the blessing of…
