September 27, 2016 - I have embedded some new links below where other sources back up my real time stream-of-conscious notes on the debate. Also, here is a very good analysis by Pepe Escobar.
Clinton has Trump right where she wants him...narcissistically talking about his businesses. She pressed him on his Income Taxes and bankruptcies and he fell right into the trap. He should have answered briefly and moved on. Note that Hillary Clinton had one thing to say about her e-mails..."It was a mistake"
One annoying thing is you can hear Trump's breathing. You can hear him taking loud breaths in between statements. Is this deliberate [sound editing]? I think so.
The Birther Issue - another non-issue
The Birther issue is another trick question. The alternative community (who are completely dismissed by the PTB...we don't exist) still believes there is a discrepancy between what Obama says and the facts surrounding his birth. His birth certificate was actually a "registration of birth" not a birth certificate. The hospital in Hawaii has no record of him being born there.
Donald still going on about opening his clubs and his businesses. The guy just doesn't have a debating background. He does not have a debating "parlance" and understanding of the nuances if you will.
Another Putin attack from Hillary. This is her Ace card on Trump. Trump's answering this question well....turning the focus on the way the DNC treated Bernie Sanders....saying nobody knows whether it was Russia who hacked the DNC.
Hillary going on about defeating ISIS on line...now she's saying "our friends the Kurds" Yes, don't we know about that...."squeezing them [ISIS] in Syria". What a liar! She knows exactly WHO is behind ISIS. One of ISIS's leaders said just today that Americans are funding and giving military weapons DIRECTLY to ISIS. She is lying directly to the American people about ISIS.
Trump is getting back on this point (the creation of ISIS).
Hillary deviously turning the topic back to domestic terrorism...another governmental creation.
Hillary going on about Trump's dissing of Muslims. This is a weakness on his part and she knows it. Now he's going on about NATO and how the member nations don't pay their share. The fact is that NATO has been co-opted by the USrael in order to build its hegemony around the world.
They tried to get Trump on being in favour of going to war on Iraq. He seems to have successfully defeated that argument. She immediately changed the topic.
She gets him on temperament when she says he said he would "blow some sailors out of the water" Donald's loose lips coming back to haunt him. Neither of them makes any serious or credible statements on nuclear proliferation. She wins the debate point on temperament when she mentions "Twitter". Case closed. I've said forever that everyone should get off that silo form of synthetic communication.
This is a topic that Trump knows nothing about. Money given to Iran? First of all the US froze all Iran's bank accounts in America at the time of the hostage crisis and they have been frozen for decades. Doesn't the US owe Iran interest on these accounts? Now I hear the US is taking this money to pay victims of 9/11. Did Iran have anything to do with 9/11?!
She's walking all over him on this issue.
Donald is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Unfortunately, Hillary is the sharpest knife in the drawer...in every sense of that metaphor. She's scary how she can gloss over all the blood dripping from the Clinton/Bush/Obama era. It does NOT bode well for the future.
