Something just didn’t seem right to me these past several weeks.
About a month ago, polls were showing Trump was very close, and even ahead of Democrat, presumptive nominee, Hillary Clinton right as the nomination cycle was winding down.
If you recall, Trump won the Republican primaries, shattering the Republican vote record for any nominee by more than 1.4 million votes while Hillary had a quarter million votes less than Obama did in 2008.
So why are polls showing Hillary suddenly skunking Trump by double digits, even though other polls are showing half of Bernie supporters WILL NOT support her?
Well, if it makes no sense, always look at the poll’s internals.
IPSOS/Reuters shows Clinton beating Trump 43% to 33%. So what was the breakdown of political affiliation? Let’s see what the poll itself says:
These are findings from an Ipsos poll conducted for Thomson Reuters June 18-22, 2016. For the survey, a sample of 1,585 Americans, including 781 Democrats, 491 Republicans, and 193 Independents ages 18+ were interviewed online.
For a poll to be truly indicative the same number of Republicans and Democrats should have been interviewed. Yet in this case, nearly double the amount of Democrats were asked whom they support over Republicans.
The ABC News/Washington Post poll shows Clinton up by 12% but the breakdown shows:
The polled Democrats account for 36 percent of all adults and 37 percent of registered voters. Republicans account for 24 percent of all adults and 27 percent of registered voters, about their average in recent years, with the rest independents.
So what was the breakdown for the last Presidential election between Obama, who had virtually all the black vote and the millennials and Romney, who didn’t even excite the base?
Dems-38% Rep-32% Ind-29%
These polls are horribly skewed, putting heavy weight on an even bigger Dem turnout than we saw in 2008, when Obama road his saving grace wave over McCain with numbers being 39-32.
With so many polls showing Trump sucking Reagan Democrats over to his side, coupled with other polls that show black and Hispanics in support in much higher numbers than in recent history, it is very difficult to digest such blatantly biased polls.
The MAYOR of Calais has threatened to send the migrant Jungle camp across the Channel to Dover by backing out of the Le Touquet treaty.
Natacha Bouchart has urged the French government to immediately begin renegotiating the treaty, which allows British border police and officials to operate in the French port.
These officers frequently catch migrants attempting to stow away on trucks and lorries in order to make it through the Chunnel to Britain.
Removing them from the transport hub could result in huge numbers of unmonitored people making their way to Dover, where a new camp could emerge.
Earlier this year, a Calais-based French politician made a similar threat, claiming a vote for Brexit should negate the current agreement.
Xavier Bertrand, president of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais-Picardie region, said: “If Britain leaves Europe, right away the border will leave Calais and go to Dover.
Not much really needs to be said when a producer of a nationally syndicated TV station posts this on Twitter just days after an armed man attempted to assassinate Donald Trump.

Oslo, Norway-Attorney and devout Muslim, Amir Mirmotahari, 38, is accused of having planned the kidnapping and drugging of a rape victim to help free his client from rape charges, was arrested by Oslo Police on Thursday.
“The accused showed up at the police station with his attorney at 1.30pm. He is charged with obstruction of the judiciary system under especially aggravating circumstances under paragraph 132a of the Penal Code,” police superintendent Stein Olav Bredli said.
On Friday morning, Oslo Police requested that Mirmotahari be held in custody while police gather evidence for the case.
On Thursday, VG distributed a audio recording that seemed to uncover Mirmotahari's arrangements to snatch the rape victim and have her tranquilized with a specific goal to free his client from rape charges. The plot never worked out as expected and the Romanian rape suspect represented to by Mirmotahari was sentenced to five years in jail.
“I can see that I have acted in a manner that is likely to harm lawyers’ professional reputation and will therefore discontinue my law practice with immediate effect,” Mirmotahari wrote in a statement published by VG.
Mirmotahari has been fired from his law firm.
“I understand that the recordings shock all who hear them. What I say in the conversation is very offensive to the woman concerned, and I apologize for that,” his statement continued.
According to VG, the aim of the alleged kidnapping plot was to keep the rape victim from appearing in court to give testimony so that the lawyer’s defendant would be acquitted. Mirmotahari has said that the audio recording has been taken out of context and that plan was never meant to be real.
"I thought that you, with your background, might have some possible solutions. What about if one should kidnap a person for a few days?” he is heard saying in the recording from May 2015, a week before he was to defend one of two Romanian men who were charged with having beaten and raped a 40-something drug addict in August 2013.
Mirmotahari said that he was under extreme pressure from the man who made the recording.
“I did say it. It sounds harsh, it's unfortunate. But it nothing ever happened anything,” the lawyer said.
Mirmotahari said that he and his family have had to live at a secret address because he has faced numerous threats.
Islamic State terrorists have beheaded a 4-year-old girl in the group's Syrian stronghold of Raqqa and forced her mother to soak her hands in her daughter's blood, an Iranian news outlet has reported.
A Syrian woman who recently escaped the wrath of IS (also known as ISIS, ISIL and Daesh) told the Tehran-based Al Alam International News Channel on the condition of anonymity about a terrifying incident that led to the decapitation of an innocent child.
"A mother told her 4-year daughter to go home and she refused and then the mother told her unintentionally 'go home and I swear to God that I will behead you if you don't,'" the woman recalled. "And one of the ISIS members heard this and told the mother 'since you swore to God you should behead her,' but the mother strongly opposed."
After the mother refused to behead her daughter, the Syrian woman said IS militants took it upon themselves to execute the child.
"But they beheaded the little girl and soaked her mother's hands in her daughter's blood," she said.
While the woman's story has not been confirmed, numerous reports have emerged in the last two years since IS took over large swaths of area in Iraq and Syria about how the militant group has mistreated, tortured and killed young children.
Earlier this year, a senior official from an Iraqi-state sponsored Shiite militia claimed that IS had executed a 4-year-old boy in Iraq's al-Shirqat district by detonating an explosive device "that was attached to the child through a remote-controlled device so that his organs would be blown apart."
The official said the murder of the boy came after the group had executed the boy's father for killing two IS fighters.
In October of last year, it was reported that IS militants executed 11 Christian missionaries and a 12-year-old boy near Aleppo.
The leader in charge of the ministry affiliated with the missionaries told the Virginia-based Christian Aid Mission that before killing the boy, the IS militants chopped off his finger tips in front of his father. They allegedly told the father that they would stop torturing his son if he would embrace Islam.
In August 2014, Canon Andrew White, also known as the Vicar of Baghdad, spoke of how the 5-year-old child of his congregants at St. George's Church in Baghdad was cut in half by IS militants.
Later in December 2014, White told of how IS militants beheaded four children who refused to renounce their love for Christ.
"ISIS turned up and they said to the children, 'you say the words that you will follow Muhammad.' The children, all under 15, four of them, they said, 'no, we love Yasua [Jesus]. We have always loved Yasua. We have always followed Yasua. Yasua has always been with us.'" White explained. "[the militants] said, 'say the words!' [the children] said, 'no, we can't do that.' They chopped all their heads off."
As the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimated in March that IS had executed over 2,100 civilians in Syria since the group rose to prominence in 2014, the woman who spoke to Alalam explained that IS has lined the streets of Raqqa — from Tal Abyaz street to al-Naeem square — with the decapitated heads of its victims in order to intimidate the citizens of Raqqa to follow IS' strict rule of law.
"They rape women, take children to war, loot houses and threaten people in Raqqa with beheadings if they don't agree with their daughters' marriage with the ISIS members," the woman said.
A 17-year-old boy has been charged after five teenagers were squirted with acid on a train station platform. Five pals aged between 16 and 18 were all taken to hospital following the attack at Ockendon station in Essex in the early hours of Sunday morning. Lee Elliott, 17, may permanently lose the sight in his left eye and one other teenager suffered potentially life-changing injuries. Another friend was also treated for 'life-changing' injuries to his mouth and tongue.A teenager, from Dagenham, Essex, has now been charged with three counts of occasioning grievous bodily harm (GBH) with intent and two counts of attempted GBH with intent. He is set to appear at Basildon Youth Court today. Lee's mum Tanya, 43, said her son faces a nervous wait to find out if he will lose the sight in one eye.She said: “They have said the right one (eye) will be ok but there are lots of burns in his left eye. We will have to wait a couple of days to find out if it will be ok." All five youths were taken to hospital suffering from burns to their faces and hands. A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service confirmed at the time: "We received a call on Sunday at 12.32am to reports of an incident on West Road in South Ockendon and sent two ambulance officers and two ambulances."At the scene, five persons were treated, two of whom were treated for head injuries while the other three were treated for minor injuries. "After an assessment at scene, all five were taken to hospital for further treatment."
Drawing slowly on his cheap cigarettes, 35-year-old Abu Zakour is hardened as he describes how he employs children as young as nine to stitch the uniforms that end up on the backs of frontline ISIS fighters. The Syrian boys - and a couple of girls hidden upstairs - are paid a minimum of 40 Turkish lira (£10) a day to stitch, cut and measure out the camouflage material and help their older colleagues piece together the uniforms that get smuggled across the border to rebel groups. ‘My kids are in a school run by an NGO,’ he said, speaking exclusively to MailOnline from his office in the Turkish border town of Antakya. ‘These children could go too but their parents want them to earn money, so what can I do?’
Seems like the past few years, sex scandals between students and female teachers have spiked. Let's take a look at some of the faces on the list of TOO HOT FOR TEACHERS.
Rapper Lil Kim has been known as one to be forever addicted to plastic surgery, constantly changing her face into something that looks like a cross between an Asian and a bloated, white housewife. Check out her latest photos, posted on Twitter yesterday, as well as Kim's face in various stages of ebb and flow.
These 20 facts are just what the doctor prescribed.
In the Finnish city of Saarijärvi pictures posted on an image board called ylilauta feature several Muslim migrants ranging from 20-40 years of age have surfaced showing them with girls as young as 10 years old sitting on, hugging and snuggling. The photos posted by the migrants are disgustingly titles "my love", "my beautiful girlfriend" and other sickening captions.
On contacting the families of some of the girls, we were told, “they are just friends, it’s normal for adult guys to call young girls beautiful and tell them they love them.”
Obviously, in Finland as it is in the west, this is not normal behavior.
In another conversation the mother of one of the children states “That’s pretty normal for adult males to be hanging out with 13 [year old] girls”
According to mvlehti.net one of the girls mothers works at a migrant camp. Her child is believed to be 10 and the parents are trying to teach her kids to be more multicultural and accepting.
This is not the first instance of pedophilia among refugees. Teenage boys are being raped in the Calais Jungle, aid workers have claimed, amid concerns over the lack of child protection measures in place in the refugee camp – and the risks of abuse facing thousands of displaced children across the continent.

Protests highlighting discrimination against the LGBT Community took a new turn with the popular porn site XHamster categorically denying access to its site for the State of North Carolina.
NC residents will now have to look for their pleasures elsewhere, and certainly not avail them from XHamster. Access to this site has been blocked for the State of North Carolina, as a backlash to the infamous ‘bathroom’ law that imposed ‘unfair’ constraints on the LGBT community there.
NC has been drawing considerable flak for its HB2 Law, which has been deemed anti- LGBT by critics. This law, as we remember from March, 2016 prohibits the use of common bathrooms and lockers unless the user is of the same certified biological sex.
North Carolina has been at the receiving end of numerous protests against this Bill. First it was the payment gateway giant, PayPal, deciding not to go ahead with its proposed new global operations center in the state, followed by Bruce Springsteen cancelling his concert in Greensboro. Rallies in Raleigh have often been occurring to show solidarity against the HB2 Law as well. This law also overrides any by- laws that local governing bodies may try to enact in order to protect the rights of the LGBTs.
While protesters have been shouting themselves hoarse, asking for repeal of this law, supporters are justifying it as an extension of the freedom of religion.
According to statistics, NC residents have been avid subscribers to XHamster, and withdrawal of access to the site will really hit them where it hurts the most.
Mike Kulich, the XHamster spokesman is quoted on the Huffington Post as saying, “We have spent the last 50 years fighting for equality for everyone and these laws are discriminatory which XHamster.com does not tolerate.”
According to Kulich, the anomaly is that while the North Carolinians are discriminatory towards the LGBT Community, vide the passed law, they are more open about their own porn searching, with the terms ‘Transsexual’ and ‘Gay’ being searched hundreds of thousands of times since March.
In a bold move, XHamster.com plans to replace its web page with a petition for signatures against the infamous Bill, as declared by Kulich.
As debatable as the Donald Trump ad on the XHamster “big cock” search page may be, Kulich was very clear in making XHamster’s loyalties known publicly - The Company does not support all of Trump’s policies, and it “will continue to support equality regardless of who gets elected.”
In retrospect, it seems most likely that the North Carolina legislators are in for some soul searching, as in all probability this protest by XHamster.com will have the ‘porn’ audience up in arms alleging deprivation.
