Trump Goes to Mexico

Trump discussed the wall, though not who is getting the bill for it. The liberal US media has flipped out; accusing the Donald of selling out by not causing a row at his first meeting with the Mexican government and then flipped to accusing him of doubling down on his tough “no amnesty” stance in a speech immediately afterwards in Arizona. Still a long way to go until November…

Trump 6% Behind Clinton in Polls

2months

With 70 days to go this is of course before the TV debates and in the context of it being socially unacceptable to support Trump in liberal circles. Will it be as with Brexit? The elite has the media and the pollsters, does Trump have the votes?

Hillary Clinton Attacks Farage and Alt-Right Movement

“Just yesterday, one of Britain’s most prominent right wing leaders – a man called Nigel Farage – who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum to have Britain leave the European Union, campaigned with Donald Trump in Mississippi. Farage has called for a ban on the children of legal immigrants from public schools and health services, has said women are quote ‘worth less’ than men, and supports scrapping laws that prevent employers from discriminating based on race – that’s who Donald Trump wants by his side when he is addressing an audience of American voters.”

“And the grand godfather of this global brand of extreme nationalism is Russian president Vladimir Putin. And in fact, Farage regularly appears on Russian propaganda programmes. Now he’s standing on the same stage as the Republican nominee.”

She appears to be running against Farage and the Alt-Right movement…

Farage to Trump “I Come to You With a Message of Hope and Optimism”

Will the lessons of the Brexit campaign transfer across the Atlantic? At a campaign rally speech in Mississippi Farage chimed with Trump’s anti-corporatist messages, his championing of “ordinary people let down by a politically correct political class”. 202 years to the day since the British burnt down the White House Farage said Trump could beat the commentators and the pollsters with a people’s army against the establishment and take the White House. Trump told the rally they too can “take back control”The latest poll has Trump 4% behind

Breitbart Boss to Run Trump Campaign

Donald Trump has hired pugnacious Breitbart chief Steve Bannon as his new campaign CEO. Bannon was instrumental in founding Breitbart London, he’s a former officer in the US navy who loved British writers like James Delingpole and had dreams of a Tea Party-style anti-establishment movement in the UK. He is an admirer of UKIP though he wishes they didn’t keep selling out and were a bit more right-wing. He signed up both Farage as a columnist and Raheem Kassam (later Nigel’s chief aide) as his London editor. Bannon is a no-nonsense, tough operator who says “we call ourselves the Fight Club. You don’t come to us for warm and fuzzy”Raheem in the White House?

Hillary Leads By 7 Points, Melania Trump Girl-on-Girl

Melania

There are two major stories stateside today: Hillary Clinton has taken a 7 point lead in the polls and nude photos have emerged of Melania Trump in some racy girl-on-girl action. Hillary leads 46-39 in a new CBS national poll, a convention bounce after she was tied with the Donald last week. Meanwhile the NY Post has dug out some pics of a young Melania in bed with a Scandinavian model, published by a French lads’ mag in 1995. And now you’re up to date.

Trump 5% Ahead of Clinton

nate-trump

As Hillary Clinton prepares to woo America at the Democratic Convention, Trump is 5% ahead in a CNN national poll and on a state-by-state forecast basis according to Nate Silver.

This is the picture now. Hillary has the advantage that most of the press and broadcast networks will be for her and despite boos at the convention from Bernie supporters – after he sold out and backed her – she will get 90% of her party’s activist support. Something is changing though and Trump’s cultural conservatism and protectionist “America First” positioning is appealing to blue collar Democrats. Left-wing activist Michael Moore reckons Trump is going to win because he connects with Americans in a way cold, calculating, “made in DC” Hillary never will. Trump has surprised all the pundits so far…

Boris is Right: White House Did Return Churchill Bust

Boris is coming in for heavy criticism for writing that a bust of Winston Churchill was removed from the White House and returned to the British embassy when Obama took office. Sky News’ Faisal Islam reports that Boris’ claim is “not true”, the Guardian say it has been “debunked”. They point to this White House statement and photo from 2012 showing Obama and Cameron inspecting a Churchill bust in the private residence of the White House, outside the Treaty room:

Yet that statement was pure spin…

As the Telegraph revealed four years ago, there were originally two matching busts of Churchill by Jacob Epstein in the White House. The one referred to in the White House statement does indeed remain in place. Yet when Obama took over from Bush, the second bust was moved to the residence of Sir Peter Westmacott, who was then Britain’s ambassador to the US. The White House were forced to admit that they had indeed returned the bust. Boris is proven right…

UPDATE: The British Embassy claim it was Obama’s decision:

“It was lent for the first term of office of President Bush. When the President was elected for his second and final term, the loan was extended until January 2009. The new President has decided not to continue this loan.”

UPDATE II: Obama just confirmed at the joint press conference with Camaeron that it was his decision to remove the Oval Office Churchill bust and replace it with one of Martin Luther King. Yet in 2012 White House comms director Dan Pfieffer insisted:

“The bust that was returned as a matter of course with all the other artwork that had been loaned to President Bush for display in his Oval Office and not something that President Obama or his Administration chose to do”

Obama has just exposed his spinner telling a straight lie…
