The Hawkeye Cauc-eye

Let the games begin. The horses (and whores) are at the starting gate and the flag is about to drop. According to which poll (if any) you choose to believe, Trump is: way ahead/running neck and neck with Cruz/Rubio is surging. Hillary is: pulling away from Sanders/trailing Sanders/in a dead heat with Sanders. The Bern is whining that Cankles is packing the caucuses with shills from out of state,the same way the community organizer cornholed her in 2008.

Tomorrow every political pundit will pen a tome about the who and why of this earth-moving event which in the final analysis will make absolutely no difference. If I can pull myself up to my desk tomorrow I plan to try to come up with something moderately coherent for a change. No promises.

WATCH: How a Caucus Works, Explained with Lego
Ever wondered how U.S. political parties really choose their candidates? It seems complicated, but it doesn’t need to be. Here, we break down how the Iowa caucus works — in Lego

BREAKING: Final Iowa Poll Shows Donald Trump Moving to Five-point Lead over Ted Cruz; Eight Point Swing Since Previous Early Jan. Poll – 1/30/16

The Des Moines Register/Bloomberg just released their final Iowa Poll ahead of Monday’s Iowa Caucuses, and it finds Donald Trump moving out to a 5-point lead over Ted Cruz 28%-23%, with Marco Rubio in third at 15%.
This is an 8-point swing for Trump since the last Iowa Poll when Cruz led by 3-points. Pollster Ann Selzer said their polling showed no real impact after Thursday night’s GOP Debate that Donald Trump walked away from.

Trump now leads in our average of Iowa Polls by +6.2 points.

Gallup: Trump Has Highest Unfavorable Rating of Any Candidate EVER

Newsmax reported:
Donald Trump has the highest unfavorable rating since Gallup began tracking the indicator for nominated candidates from either political party during the 1992 elections. Just two days before the Iowa caucuses, 60 percent of Americans surveyed view Trump unfavorably, versus 33 percent who see him favorably.

By comparison, Democrat Hillary Clinton’s rating is 52 percent, while Jeb Bush’s is 45 percent.

Chris Christie’s is at 38 percent, while Ted Cruz’s is 37 percent, Marco Rubio 33 percent, fellow Democrat Bernie Sanders holds 31 percent, while and Ben Carson’s rating is 30 percent.

“The bottom line is that Trump now has a higher unfavorable rating than any candidate at any time during all of these previous election cycles,” said Frank Newport, Gallup’s editor-in-chief.

IA Governor Branstad: Hillary is VINDICTIVE – She Won’t Forget If She GETS STUNG TWICE
WHAT CAN SHE POSSIBLY DO THAT THE VINDICTIVE PRICK-IN-CHIEF HASN’T ALREADY DONE?
Tucker Carlson: Let’s say Hillary loses tonight. It’s the second time she loses and becomes president. Are you concerned?

Governor Branstad: Oh, she’s vindictive… Oh, she is vindictive. And, you know what she said after she lost here eight years ago? My concern is, if she gets beat here and then becomes president, I think we got a really big problem… I think she’d see to it that Iowa was not first… If this state stung her twice she’s pretty vindictive and I don’t think she would forget what happened.

Uh, Governor,we get it… she’s vindictive.

    Obama To Visit Baltimore Mosque This Week

    “On Wednesday, February 3rd, the President will travel to Maryland to visit the Islamic Society of Baltimore mosque to celebrate the contributions Muslim Americans make to our nation and reaffirm the importance of religious freedom to our way of life,” a White House official said in a statement
    http://www.hapblog.com/2016/01/obama-to-visit-baltimore-mosque-next.html

    HE DID NOT CHOOSE THIS DEN OF FILTH BY HAPPENSTANCE

    To ‘Reaffirm the Importance of Religious Freedom,’ Obama to Visit US Mosque With Extremist Ties

    But the choice of visiting the Islamic Society of Baltimore is raising eyebrows, given the mosque’s history of extremist ties.

    The ISB is part of a network of mosques controlled by the Islamic Society of North America, “a Muslim civil rights group named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation terror case. Several executives with that organization were convicted of sending money to aid the terrorist group Hamas
    Furthermore, Mohammad Adam el-Sheikh, who served as the mosque’s imam on two separate occasions for a total of 15 years, was a leading figure in the Muslim Brotherhood in Sudan during the 1970s. He also went on to co-found the Muslim American Society in Falls Church, Virginia, which is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood. His shady history does not end there, however.

    Soros Gives $6 Million To Save Hillary On Eve Of Iowa

    Last May, Hillary Clinton said, “I will do everything I can to appoint Supreme Court justices who protect the right to vote and do not protect the right of billionaires to buy elections.” Yet on the eve of the Iowa caucus, liberal billionaire George Soros is hoping a $6 million donation to a super PAC supporting Clinton’s candidacy will be the difference maker in the Hawkeye State.

    The Soros donation was given to Priorities USA Action, a Clinton-alligned super PAC. The PAC reported $36 million in the bank at the beginning of 2016.

    Cheney runs for Wyoming’s US House seat, to announce Monday

    Liz Cheney filed federal election documents Friday showing she’s running for Wyoming’s lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
    “I can’t say that I’m surprised,” fellow candidate State Rep. Tim Stubson said Saturday of Cheney’s entry. “We know that she brings with her kind of a big Washington machine and lots of national money, which certainly changes the complexion of the race.”

    Donald Trump Hands Out First Veterans Check to “Puppy Jake” in Iowa

    I’M ALL FOR HELPING OUR VETERANS.
    I JUST QUESTION WHY IT HAD TO BE ON THE DAY OF THE DEBATE?

    Businessman Donald Trump handed out his first check to a veterans group Saturday to Puppy Jake.
    Donald Trump and Jerry Falwell, Jr. dispersed the first proceeds from his ‘Special Event For Veterans’ to the Puppy Jake Foundation.

    Trump gave Puppy Jake $100,000 from the $6 million that was raised at his veterans fundraiser this past week in Iowa.

    UN group recommends ‘reparatory justice’ for African Americans

    YOU MAY RECOGNIZE THE AFRICAN QUEEN IN THE BACKGROUND.
    IT’S THE OH-SO-TOLERANT STEPHANIE RAWLINGS-HYPHENATED-BLAKE.
    WE NEED MO’ MONEY CUZ OUR WELFARE, FOOD STAMPS, SUBSIDIZED HOUSING, FREE HEALTH CARE, AND RACE-BASED SET ASIDES AREN’T ENOUGH. WE NEED MORE FREE SHIT!

    The UN Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent criticized disparities in wealth, health care, and criminal justice for African Americans.
    A United Nations working group visiting the United States walks away “extremely concerned about the human rights situation of African Americans,” members said in a preliminary report released Friday, in which they urged the US government to address the legacy of slavery with “reparatory justice,” a national human rights commission, and ongoing criminal justice reform

    PANDERELLA IN DA HOUSE!!
    Hillary Prepares to Embrace Slavery Reparations

    But she clings like a mollusk to one piece of polling information, desperately hoping it will be enough to save her sinking candidacy: she’s rising with blacks and Latinos.

    Yes, even though Hillary is going over like the bubonic plague with her own electorate, she’s still making heavy inroads with minorities, even as she sinks like the Titanic with white voters. From December to January, her lead among whites plummeted from above 20 percent to dead even with Sanders. But in the same period, her support base among blacks and Latinos increased from just above 40 percent to 50 percent.

    The Felonious HRC

    And we all thought that rappers were the only ones who thought a criminal record was a resume-enhancer.

    Turns out rappers aren’t the only gangstas, yo.

    Hillary Clinton made her bones in politics by acting like a thug in a pantsuit. She treats the law like it’s optional.

    The only difference between the Felonious HRC and the Notorious BIG is Biggy never denied he was a criminal and when he started to make it big, he gave up his life of crime.

    We can’t say the same thing for rap-sheet master Hill.

    The Felonious HRC only made it big because she’s a criminal. And she’s not about to give that up.

    VIDEO OF THE DAY—-> Miami Woman PULLS OVER COP for Driving 90 MPH on His Way To Work
    A Miami police officer was on the receiving end of “What’s the emergency?” when a woman following him convinced him to pull over after trailing him at speeds up to 90 miles per hour as he zig-zagged in out and out traffic.

    After noting several times that she was barely able to keep up with Miami-Dade police officer by driving 80, she finally got close enough to get his attention by flashing her lights and he pulled over.
