Trump?

From Veterans Today Website:

But looking back to the 2008 election, we found Obama pulling 69 million to Hillary’s 59 million in 2016, so where did the 10 million Obama voters go, when as an eight-year incumbent he had the bully pulpit to call them out?

2016 election results – Wikipedia

Clinton: 59,612,076 votes    Trump:  59,400,973 

2008 election results

Obama: 69,498,516 votes   McCain:  59,948,323

So why is no one in media even mentioning this but VT, once again, as we have so many time before.  This is the black hole of missing votes in all election history, and no one is even curious? Riddle me that.

Your article is old  Doug..There is no discrepancy. Roughly the same amount of people voted for the 2 major party candidates in 2008 as 2016.Roughly 130 million people in 2008. 129 million in 2016. But then you're forgetting to add 7 million more for the 2 alternative parties and the Utah  guy..

Clinton received 65,844,610 votes, or 48.2% of the total vote.

Trump received 62,979,636 votes, or 46.1% of the total vote. (That’s a difference of 2.86 million votes, not 212,000 votes.)

The remaining 5.7% of the vote went to other candidates, like Gary Johnson, Jill Stein, Evan McMullin, and, I don’t know, write-ins for flesh-eating bacteria.

"Trump plans to oversee the last great campaign of corporate pillaging of America. It will be as crass and brazen as the fleecing of the desperate people, hopin...g for a miracle in the face of dead-end jobs and ruinous personal debt, who visited his casinos or shelled out thousands of dollars for the sham of Trump University. He will attempt to unleash a kleptocracy—the word comes from the Greek klépto, meaning thieves, and kratos, meaning rule, so it is literally “rule by thieves”—one that will rival the kleptocracies carried out by Suharto in Indonesia and Ferdinand Marcos in the Philippines. It is not that Trump and his family will use the influence of government to increase their wealth, although this will certainly take place on a massive scale; it is that hundreds of billions of federal dollars will be diverted into the hands of cronies, sleazy bankers, unethical financial firms and scabrous hedge fund managers. The pillars of the liberal state will be obliterated." Chris Hedges

Harry Dent was interviewed on coasttocoast last night (1/5/17). Here are his predictions from the program's summary online:

In the first half, economist specializing in demographics, Harry Dent discussed the cyclical nature of market bubbles and why he expects a crash to happen in 2017. He has tracked four different cycles over 30-year periods, concluding they're all headed downward, and "the next three years are going to be the most difficult in our lifetime, very similar to the early 1930s and the early-mid 1970s." However, because of the 'Trump Factor,' he is bullish short term, seeing one last market rally that will continue till around July. When the bubble finally crashes, the market will precipitously decline 40-45% within just a 2-3 month period, as it did recently in China in 2015, he warned.

Donald Trump has created an illusion that we can go back to a 1950s-style America with a big manufacturing base, Dent commented, plus trade wars and deporting millions of immigrants could lead to a deep recession. Commercial real estate will be hit particularly hard when layoffs start kicking in, he continued. Yet, at various points in the upcoming crash, Dent sees big opportunities for investors who get out of the market in time. He foresses incredible bargains with stocks to be had at 10, 20, or 30 cents on the dollar, and 40-50% off on real estate.

Newsweek - Kurt Eichenwald
1-10-2017

Moscow is seen as a direct threat to the interests of NATO and other American allies—both in its aggressive efforts to reshape global alliances and for its power to damage Western Europe, which obtains almost 40 percent of its natural gas from Russia. Should the United States, the last remaining superpower, tilt its policies away from NATO to the benefit of Russia, the alliance between America and Western Europe could be transformed in unprecedented ways. And so, for perhaps the first time since World War II, countries in Western Europe fear that the American election of Trump could trigger events that imperil their national security and irreparably harm the alliances that have kept the continent safe for decades.
