The Improbable Similarities Between the 2004 Illinois Senate Race and the 2016 Presidential Race Continue

Christopher Jon Bjerknes

In the 2004 Illinois Senate race, which resulted in the unlikely general election win of banker puppet and Goldman Sachs guy Barack Obama, both of the front runners in the primaries were brought down by public revelations from their prior divorce proceedings. Jack Ryan, Republican, and Blair Hull, Democrat, both lost as a result of divorce records made public. Both had some kind of link to Goldman Sachs and both were quite wealthy.

Trump is now being attacked for old allegations, which his former wife has since retracted:

Only time will tell if anything measurable is to come of this. On another more important front, I am not the only one to notice that Trump is contradicting himself with his rhetoric on legal immigration and illegal immigration. See:

Trump may be weaker on illegals than many of the other Republicans. Trump should clarify his position. They are going to nail him down at the debates or crucify him for his arrogant dance around the issue of what he intends to do about the problem of the invaders already within our borders.
