Trump or Clinton? Dodgy adverts. Dodgy arguments.

Presidential elections are more about EMOTION rather than logic.

Voters are often motivated by FEAR, or HATRED, or ENVY.

The Trump campaign, run by some clever Jewish folks, has tapped into voters’ feelings of helplessness, resentment and wounded pride.

However, Trump’s campaign of fear, hatred and envy of Mexicans, Moslems and Blacks may have been just too negative?

Voters may at last have begun to realise that Trump is a Neocon Likudnik who is keen to bomb Iran and Syria.

Hillary is also a Neocon, but she may be benefitting from her “focus on making people feel joyful, inspired and empowered.”

1. Your car won’t start.

Maybe your driver, Hillary Clinton, has failed to put petrol in the tank.
Or maybe, your mechanic, Donald Trump, has failed to replace the faulty battery.
You phone the garage, and the garageman confirms that there is no petrol in the tank.
Problem solved.
You always knew that Hillary had a rotten record.
You sack Hillary.

“But wait,” says the garageman, “You are using the problem-solving principle known asOckam’s Razor.

“According to William of Ockham, simpler theories are preferable to more complex ones.

“I have to tell you that the battery is faulty.
“Donald Trump failed to replace it.
“So you can also sack Donald Trump.
“Clinton and Trump are secretly close friends?”

2.  Economists who follow Classical economic theory assume that we tend to make rational decisions.
However, scientists who study our thinking have found that a lot of the time we do not act objectively, or rationally.
We largely see the world through biases.

Some people do not want to see the faults of the Democrats and some people do not want to see the faults of the Republicans.

3. An Ad Hominem argument is said to be bad because in an Ad Hominem argument you are attacking the person’s character rather than their argument.

Hillary Clinton may have inherited some of her father’s characteristics?

Her father, Hugh, was “was a ‘bullshit artist”, a family member once said.

Hugh “excessively spanked the couple’s three children. He verbally abused Hillary’s mother, Dorothy, and … their relationship was ‘sadomasochist’.”

What about Hilary’s policies?

Hillary did not plan the destruction of Yugoslavia, but, she went along with the plans of the Deep State to bomb Yugoslavia.


Donald trump has a strange character.

Trump said, “I’ve known Jeff (Epstein) for fifteen years. Terrific guy.
“He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it – Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

Donald Trump’s first wife, Ivana, in a sworn deposition, stated that Trump raped her in 1989.


What about Trump’s policies?

Trump has blamed Russia for what happened in Ukraine.

“Our president is not strong, and he is not doing what he should be doing for the Ukraine,” Trump said.

What Trump says on North Korea:

“Who else in public life has called for a pre-emptive strike on North Korea?”

Trump is willing to carry out a pre-emptive strike on North Korea


When it comes to choosing Presidents, Ad Hominem arguments are OK, so long as they are accurate.
The allegedly ‘nice guy’ Jimmy Carter put the Islamists into power in Afghanistan.

4. When the BBC does a documentary on 9 11, it selects only the information that fits its case that 9 11 was not an inside-job.

9 11 REVEALED – The Daily Mail / WHO DID 9 11?

Confirmation Bias means using only the evidence that supports our pre-existing ideas, and refusing to look at the evidence that conflicts with our ideas.

“If I’m the President, we will attack Iran.” Did Hilary Clinton actually say that?

Donald Trump: ‘I Believe You Have To … Strike Iran’.

5. When the BBC does a documentary on 9 11, they refer to the weakest and most silly conspiracy theory about 911 and then demolish that theory.
This is the The Straw Man technique, where you attack a weak aspect of someone’s argument.
The pro-Clinton mainstream media will only mention Hillary Clinton’s minor faults.
No mention of Cathy O’Brien.

MKUltra Whistleblower Cathy O’Brien.

The pro-Trump media will only mention Trump’s minor faults.

Yet, the Donald Trump child rape lawsuit is credible .

6. One technique used to disrupt sensible arguments is the The Red Herring technique.
The 2016 US Presidential election debate should consider subjects such as:
The CIA and Mossad’s reported use of False Flag terrorism
The CIA and Mossad’s reported use of child abuse rings
The CIA and Mossad’s reported use of mind control.
However, the Powers-That-Be throw in lots of Red Herrings – to divide and rule:
Disputes about Race
Disputes about Gays
Disputes about Guns
