Trump, Trump, Trump. It’s the new onomatopoeia for motorcycles and politics. But there is also other news, believe it or not. US flag sales are up, helping the Chinese manufacturing industry. It’s a start at patriotism, anyway. Soon enough, Americans will learn that being patriotic means keeping jobs in the country, which means not complaining about prices so much.

You read it here first, Trump going head-to-head against the Clinton’s will show an unseen game and tip the polls. There is a lot from the Clinton years that Trump will go after as no RINO has, making the anit-Clinton crowd not only stronger, but much, much larger. Prediction fulfilled this week.

Then, there’s bathrooms. Texas and a few others filed a lawsuit against the idea that gender identity choice was intended to be part of the Civil Rights law governing the bodies we are born with. They filed in a Conservative-friendly court. The DC circuit has been inclined to hear Conservative-Texan cases, which means that SCOTUS could hear the case—which means that SCOTUS could tie the case and bump it back to a lower Conservative ruling if a new Conservative justice isn’t appointed first.

In the unlikely event that the Congressional RINOs capitulate as their broken promises show, Trump would become the last Republican to be elected as a President before a third party replaces the GOP. Though typical, it would be unlikely this time because the scenario is all too obvious to the party. And it should be obvious to Obama.

He should have known that his transgender executive orders would be met with unbeatable opposition. So, what’s his end game? Is he merely trying to stir discussion—that’s all he’ll end up accomplishing, unless he knows something the public doesn’t. As Limbaugh has pointed out, simple one-person bathrooms would solve the entire problem—and refusing that option shows that solving the problem is not anyone’s goal. The public has yet to discuss any connection to the conspiracy theories surrounding Michelle Obama. Those conspiracy theories seem more plausible in lieu of Barack’s policies as Barack’s policies would have a clear motive if the conspiracy theories were true. While no one in the mainstream press has suggested the connection, the sharks and ravens are already circling, the sun is setting on the Obama policy season, and revival has already dawned.

China is deploying weapons. The US is responding with pressure—mostly economic, some political, always involving alliances. Money and trade are atop the list.

China’s unusual manipulation of its money is documented and under more scrutiny than ever.

According to Chinese State-run media, China has weapons on disputed islands by right. According to the government, US concern over militarizing those islands is “hype”. Still, Asean is watching the Pacific and so is Bloomberg.

Senior Supreme Justice Scalia died days after ruling against Obama. Cause of death is presumed and unchallenged, similarly to the legacy Obama wants. There will be no autopsy. There will be questions. One should pray for the health and safety of one’s adversaries in order to reduce questions. Obama wants to uphold the Constitution in appointing a nominee; will the nominee?

Sanders argues Constitutional compliance in the president appointing the next Supreme Justice. Does he know that he is a Democrat? If Sanders wanted to be fair and get rid of the 1% control, why did he choose a political party that gives extra delegate votes to the 1%? He won New Hampshire, but gained fewer delegates because of the system in the so-called “Democratic” party, having “superdelegates”. The Republican party treats all votes equally, and has given at least lip-service defense of the Constitution in a day when the Constitution seems to have many adversaries.

Perhaps someone should inform Homeland Security that Obama and Sanders have become sudden advocates of the Constitution. But, that would raise more questions.

You already read it here first: Sanders will lose to the Clinton machine. Sanders and his supporters asked for the superdelegate problem when they chose the so-called “Democratic” party. Smart people tend to win at things; not-smart people tend to not win. Frankly, serves them right. But, no one should be surprised that none of them figured out that this would happen ahead of time.

Liberals  can’t tell the difference between opinion and fact when their own opinions are involved. In this, they are unabashed as much as they are unaware. Conflation of opinion and fact, leveraging bully pulpits to impose bias, shamelessness—these are all indications that one has lost the argument and hasn’t yet figured out that one does know it.

While Pacific Daily Times will continue to interact with Quartz articles, because they have good quality writing, nonetheless bias and open about it, we now know with certainty that it is a Liberal blog. Breitbart, openly Right Wing establishment-ish, and The Blaze, more pure Conservative, are banned from the Times because of heavy website load times and for no other reason.

Perhaps Liberal blogs operate at a profit loss while Right Wing sites use establishment advertising methods that bog-down web resolve times. It’s a shame, what all periodicals involve. But, it indicates a shakeup and, among other things, that revival is returning to America.

You read it here first: Trump in New Hampshire, Trump is positioned to get some of the Sanders vote in the general.

Nation to State, the Federal Justice department is suing Ferguson, MO. This sets a precedent for the next White House to sue Chicago over corruption. North Korea is also cracking down on its leaders; one general was reported executed. Such are the ways of top-down politics. The high GOP turnout in New Hampshire is a bottom-up phenomenon. That’s the difference.

Donald keeps making headlines. Just ahead of the Hawkeye Cauci, two polls report Trump and Cruz in a dead heat, the rest give Trump a 9-ish point lead. But only Iowans know how Iowans will caucus. Corn could a problem for Cruz. He may have gotten his message out too late. Or, perhaps too may Iowans like government subsidies for Cruz to ever win. Or, maybe ethanol doesn’t matter at all.

We’ll see. So will Microsoft. And so will Bernie see whether Microsoft sees clearly. This is the first time the election results are being calculated by the tech giant, inviting watchdogs. There are a lot of firsts in this election.

Trump’s absence at the Fox debate didn’t seem to matter to anyone but Fox—before the debate. And it didn’t seem to matter to anyone else before, not even Fox during or after. Debates themselves are being tested as to their worth, other than profitability. Thought-to-be campaign rules are being set on end so much, it is as if the Andrew Jackson campaign were making a comeback. Strategy books will write about these times, placing Trump alongside Drew, Abe, and Theo.

Since Taiwan’s election, China and the KMT-Nationalists have been largely silent. While the Chinese aren’t spending as much money at home, and while the Chinese economy looks evermore shaky, Xi Jinping has no problem dealing with Egypt or declaring all but war against Israel. Historically, talking ill of Israel is bad political luck. Perhaps China thinks itself the exception to many things.

Taiwan’s pro-China KMT-Nationalist party is out for the count. Defeated. Wind knocked-out. Humiliated. It’s over. And, it is surprising. Not only did the KMT respond by acknowledging their defeat; its members showed no awareness of how their pro-China policies would dissolve their power at home nor how their mismanagement of domestic disarray from poor policies would make their aspirations untenable. There was no way the could win, yet the only seem to have seen this in retrospect.

That hindsight realization could have a contagious affect and spread to US policy. The Obama administration has made a Trump nomination and victory ever bit as inevitable as how Taiwan’s DPP opposition victory owes thanks to Taiwan’s Ma administration. Tsai couldn’t not have won in 2016 just how Obama couldn’t have lost with George W. Bush’s foreign policies and refusal to respond to the press. Maybe the West will get wise. This year, there were no Chinese missiles fired across Taiwan, as there was in 1996. Few things indicate that Beijing is learning like this.
