The New York Times, Mexico’s Weapon Against Trump

New York Times has just endorced Hillary Clinton for President of the United States, and I will say there is no surprise in this. In case we have forgotten, the biggest shareholder of the NYT is Calors Slim, the richest man in Mexico.

There is no way the Times would not have endorced Clinton after Donald Trump’s promise to build a yuge wall between the US and Mexico if elected president. As it stands, the biggest weapon Mexico has in its fight against Donald Trump is the New York Times.

The truth is that the chief stewards of the New York Times, the Sulzberger family, cannot afford to antagonise its biggest backer, Calors Slim, who even though he is the biggest shareholder, has left them as publishers of the paper. The Sulzberger Clan own most of the voting shares while Slim owns most of the ordinary shares.

Donald Trump’s Tough Times Continue…

With The Donald, it seems each day brings a new barrage of attacks from those determined not to give him a fighting chance.

Donald Trump depends on his pronouncements to maintain his appeal, but the tactics being used by his enemies is to pounce on any pronouncement he makes and find something – anything in the statements to attack him with.

This strategy seems to be working as the poll numbers show Hillary Clinton expanding her lead  over him. Clearly, Hillary Clinton is no pushover, as her team has perfected the art of using Trump’s words against him to devastating effect. Continue reading “Donald Trump’s Tough Times Continue…”

How Hillary Clinton Was Nominated As Democratic Party Candidate

The article linked to below gives a concise report of the nomination of Hillary Clinton as the first female presidential flag-bearer for the US Democratic Party.

The Democrats have been known to be first in so many things political in the United States. For instance, they gave the US its first Catholic president (John F. Kennedy) and its first Black president (Barak Obama). Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Democrat) became the only US president to serve for four terms.

But with Hurricane Trump blowing from the right of US politics, will the Democrats be able to convince America to make Hillary Clinton the first female presidet of the United States?

Hillary’s husband Bill Clinton, America’s first female Secretary of State, Madeleine Allbright and a host of other Democratic heavyweights seem to think so.

US election 2016: Clinton will win the Democratic Party’s nomination tommorow

Last time Hillary Clinton ran in the Democratic Party primaries, she failed. That was in 2008 when she was beaten by Barack Obama, who went on to win the US presidential elections in that year.

But in today’s primaries, Hillary Clinton is projected to win all five states that are up for grabs. And when she wins, it will become almost impossible for her challenger, Bernie Sanders to overcome her lead.

The states up for contest are Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island, and opinion polls show Mrs. Clinton leading in all  those states.

The Clinton wins wouldn’t mean that the race is over, just that it would have become a mere formality after Tuesday. The Clinton Dynasty can then breathe a part-sigh of relief. This is because the Republican front-runner, Donald Trump, whom she will likely face is a very very tough contender.

 

The Democratic campaign has not been as divisive as the Republican campaign. That means Hillary Clinton’s will have the advantage of taken a rest and reenergizing as the Republican candidates practice the political version of death by a thousand cuts on themselves.
