ELDER PATRIOT – Just released polls from Quinnipiac and Monmouth show Donald Trump on his way to winning the presidency.  With the Republican convention set to begin on Monday Trump should soon enjoy a post convention bounce that will catapult him even further ahead of Hillary Clinton who is going to continue to be harangued by the scandals resulting from her corrupt ways.

Quinnipiac pollsters found Trump leading Mrs. Clinton in Pennsylvania by 6 points, in Florida by 5 points, and in Ohio by a point when all of the presidential candidates are offered for the poll’s respondents to consider.

The Monmouth poll released yesterday finds Trump leading a four-way race in Iowa by 2 points.

This effectively flips Obama’s 2012 electoral map meaning if voters in the other states remain consistent, as current polls indicates they will, Trump leads Hillary 264 electoral votes to 246.  A Trump win in either of the toss-up states of Virginia or North Carolina will result in Donald Trump being the next president.

There’s also the distinct possibility that Trump’s post election bounce will put other states into play that Mrs. Clinton has been counting on to be safely in her column.

Trump is likely to pick up support from voters now backing one of the third party candidates as we get closer to the election, as well.  This has been the case in the past as voters have historically decided it’s better to choose one of the major party candidates rather than see their votes wasted.

Clinton’s road to victory has become considerably more doubtful.  She must win North Carolina and hold all of the other states.  That will be unlikely for multiple reasons.

First, she has already spent tens of millions of dollars in these key battleground states on negative advertising aimed at defining Trump.  The fact that she’s fallen further in the polls following these blistering ads indicates that Trump has already reached his bottom and is now on the way up as people are paying more attention and learning more about him.

Then, there’s also the national security questions surrounding Mrs. Clinton caused by her cavalier use of an illegal email server that exposed U.S. secrets, her sale of U.S. Uranium reserves to the Russians in exchange for $125 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation, and the Clinton’s overall view of the sale of United States assets as a means of personal enrichment.

Finally, after 24 years in Washington D.C. Mrs. Clinton is running as the incumbent proclaiming on the campaign trail that she would be President Obama’s third term. 

At this point Mrs. Clinton is a known quantity and that means if she hasn’t closed the deal with voters by now it’s likely she never will.  It’s looking more and more like she has reached her high-water mark and it’s probably downhill from here.  The view from here says she will only be able to watch as support is increasingly peeled away from her as we get closer to the election and undecided voters begin breaking heavily for Trump as Independents already have begun doing.

HERE IS A LIST OF EVERY SINGLE TIME OBAMA COMMITTED AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE THAT DEMS & MEDIA COVERED UP “Impeach!” It’s been more than eight years since Democrats uttered that word – long enough for anyone to wonder if it was still in their vocabulary, considering the deafening silence through the dozens of serious scandals during President Obama’s administration – but now that President Trump is the man in the White House, it’s back with a vengeance. Democrats everywhere are wildly slinging the “I” word, hoping to nail Trump for high crimes and misdemeanors after the New York Times claimed a memo written by former FBI Director James Comey said the president urged him to end the federal investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Some members of Congress are getting in on the action. They include Reps. Maxine Water, D-Calif., and Al Green, D-Texas. Even a Republican, Rep. Justin Amash, claimed Wednesday there are grounds to impeach President Trump. House Oversign Committee Chair Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, asked for the alleged Comey memo and other documents. Chaffetz tweeted that he is prepared to subpoena the information. And Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., invoked “Watergate.” Now the Democratic Party is reportedly poll testing impeachment as a 2018 election issue. More than 1 million people signed a petition calling on Congress to impeach Trump. Wasting no time Wednesday, the mainstream media sprang into action, enthusiastically echoing the left’s impeachment calls. MSNBC launched a Watergate ad implying Trump is America’s new Richard Nixon. “Watergate. We know its name because there were reporters who never stopped asking questions,” says MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who hinted that Trump is next on the impeachment chopping block. “Now, who knows where the questions will take us. But I know this: I’m not going to stop asking them.” Meanwhile, some overzealous members of the left plastered fliers around Washington, D.C., demanding all White House staffers resign Wednesday. The posters read: “If you work for this White House you are complicit in hate-mongering, lies, corrupt taking of Americans’ tax money via self-dealing and emoluments, and quite possibly federal crimes and treason. Also, any wars will be on your soul. … Resign now.” But constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley, who voted for President Obama, warned “impeachment” enthusiasts not to get ahead of themselves with President Trump. Why? At this time, there’s no evidence Trump actually committed a crime. “The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo,” Turley wrote in a May 17 opinion piece posted at the Hill. Turley explained: For the first time, the Comey memo pushes the litany of controversies surrounding Trump into the scope of the United States criminal code. However, if this is food for obstruction of justice, it is still an awfully thin soup. Some commentators seem to be alleging criminal conduct in office or calling for impeachment before Trump completed the words of his inaugural oath of office. Not surprising, within minutes of the New York Times report, the response was a chorus of breathless “gotcha” announcements. But this memo is neither the Pentagon Papers nor the Watergate tapes. Indeed, it raises as many questions for Comey as it does Trump in terms of the alleged underlying conduct. A good place to start would be with the federal law, specifically 18 U.S.C. 1503. The criminal code demands more than what Comey reportedly describes in his memo. There are dozens of different variations of obstruction charges ranging from threatening witnesses to influencing jurors. None would fit this case. That leaves the omnibus provision on attempts to interfere with the “due administration of justice.” However, that still leaves the need to show that the effort was to influence “corruptly” when Trump could say that he did little but express concern for a longtime associate. The term “corruptly” is actually defined differently under the various obstruction provisions, but it often involves a showing that someone acted “with the intent to secure an unlawful benefit for oneself or another.” Encouraging leniency or advocating for an associate is improper but not necessarily seeking an unlawful benefit for him. .
