Hillary Disappears from Campaign Trail… Again

Donald Trump is surging in many polls. And now here is an excerpt from Breitbart.com from Wednesday, October 5:

Aside from the debates, Hillary Clinton won’t appear at any public events or rallies for over 2 weeks – at the height of the presidential race – suggesting that her health problems could be worsening.

Hillary’s schedule shows that she will appear at just one fundraiser, in San Francisco, California on Sunday, but besides that has absolutely no plans to show her face at any rallies.

… While Clinton will appear at none of her own rallies until beyond October 23, Donald Trump is set to headline four rallies over the next seven days alone.

Hillary going virtually AWOL from her own campaign trail strongly suggests that the health problems which have forced her to keep a “light schedule” are back with a vengeance.

OK, so Hillary’s health appears again to be an issue. No rational candidate would go off the campaign trail in the last four weeks of the presidential election. There is definitely something going on here.

Or it could involve a separate issue which is also bad news – the pitiful attendance numbers at Hillary’s rallies are hurting her image, so perhaps she has decided not to campaign at all to avoid the embarrassment.

Hillary and her operatives know that conservatives are attending and filming and photographing her rallies and exposing the poor attendance on the internet.

For instance, there is a brief video on Breitbart.com from a Hillary rally in Ohio on October 3 in which a medical gurney was being rushed toward the back room where Hillary was preparing for an appearance. This is very troubling. In the video an angry Hillary operative is taking pictures of the young lady photographing the gurney, as if to intimidate her for taking the video. This is a typical left-wing tactic.

Nikitas3.com goes further. I believe that Hillary and her handlers may be so afraid of a health problem at a public rally that she is staying home and believes that the risk is less in staying home than in a health crisis while campaigning, which would effectively end her campaign.

Meanwhile Breitbart.com reported about another election season issue in the Democrat party:

Indiana State Police raided the offices of Indiana Voter Registration in downtown Indianapolis, a group run by longtime Democratic operative Craig Varoga. The raid was part of an ongoing investigation which originally started in two counties and has now spread to nine: Hendricks, Marion, Allen, Delaware, Hamilton, Hancock, Johnson, Lake, and Madison counties.

This is par for the course. Indiana has had a notoriously corrupt Democrat party for decades… like every other state. OK, now here is an update on another subject entirely – the September 29 New Jersey commuter train wreck. This is from Foxnews.com:

Months before Thursday’s deadly (commuter) train crash (in New Jersey), federal rail officials found dozens of violations during an audit that focused on NJ Transit’s safety and operations, a U.S. official told The Associated Press. The audit was launched after the federal regulatory agency noticed an uptick in rail incident and found “dozens of safety violations” that needed to be fixed immediately, the official said. The commuter rail agency was fined as a result of the audit.

Since 2011, NJ Transit trains have been involved in more than 150 accidents that caused more than $4.8 million in damage to tracks or equipment’s and has paid more than $500,000 to settle safety violations, according to federal data. Information from the Federal Railroad Administration shows that NJ Transit has settled 183 safety violations — ranging from employee drug and alcohol use to violations of railroad operating rules or practices, since Jan. 1, 2011.

It is important to remember that railroad safety militants on the Democrat left have been demanding a very expensive computerized safety system called PTC. They blamed the New Jersey accident on lack of PTC.

PTC is expected to cost our private-sector freight railroads up to $20 BILLION to install. The railroads resisted not only over the cost, but also over its complexity, and because nobody knows if it is even going to work. In a famous accident on the Washington, DC metro in 2009 there were nine people killed when a PTC-type system failed.

Nikitas3.com believes that PTC will actually increase accidents since it is now drawing large amounts of capital away from cheaper and more cost-effective safety measures like car and track inspection, worker training, track maintenace, and employee screening.

And even if PTC does work perfectly it still will not prevent most train accidents since they are caused by external factors not related to PTC like worker incompetence and malfunctioning equipment.

After the New Jersey wreck the safety activists went into full war cry saying that PTC would have prevented the crash. This is standard leftist tactic to relentlessly exploit tragedy for political ends.

But then look at all of the accidents and violations on NJ Transit that could easily be fixed by enforcing existing rules and safety procedures. So NJ Transit should fix its existing safety problems first (at a cost of zero dollars) before adopting an expensive and unproven system like PTC.

Now on another subject here is some media sophistry about “climate change”. This is an MSNBC reporter named Ron Allen talking about a new “climate” pact supported by Obama, saying that ‘climate change’ laws are “designed to stop” hurricanes:

Now, as a practical matter, it’s very interesting that this is happening (Obama touting a new ‘climate’ pact) on a day when there’s a hurricane bearing down on the United States and in the Caribbean because these severe storms, beach erosions, intense weather episodes that we’ve had is perhaps the most practical sample of what the president was talking about as the threat that the planet faces and this is what this whole climate agreement signed by 190 nations and now ratified by 60 or so is designed to stop.

This, friends, is how the left distorts science. Man now apparently can control the weather with a piece of legislation. This is amazing since man has been trying to do this since the beginning of time. But only Obama has actually achieved it…

Now here is an interesting excerpt about the environment from CNSNews.com by reporter Lauretta Brown:

Nearly three-quarters of Americans don’t trust that there is a large “scientific consensus” amongst climate scientists on human behavior being the cause of climate change, according to an in-depth survey on “the politics of climate” released Tuesday by Pew Research Center.

According to the survey, only 27 percent of Americans agree that “almost all” climate scientists say that human behavior is mostly responsible for climate change, while 35 percent say that “more than half” of climate scientists agree on this. An additional 35 percent of those surveyed say that fewer than half (20%) or almost no (15%) climate scientists believe that human behavior is the main contributing factor in climate change.

So despite the endless media hype about ‘climate change’ and ‘global warming’ most free-thinking people are not buying it and the reason is simple – because there is no evidence that anything new or different is happening. The weather is the weather. It is never predictable. It has been both hot and cold and warm and cool for both long periods and short periods. There have always been droughts, hurricanes, floods, tornadoes and everything else.
