MSM is POLLING our LEG! Presidential Polls – 2016


media 13

“But…but ..but…they wouldn’t lie to us would they? Seriously? Would the media deliberately lie and deceive the American public?”

You can bet your bottom dollar they would! And do! All the time! And they have been lying to us and distorting the truth for a very very long time. So long we don’t even know how long. Maybe forever, as far as I know.

“But why? Why would they lie? Why would they lie about the candidates? Why would they lie about the polls?”

Because the media, for the most part, is owned by just a handful of very wealthy and powerful individuals and they print what is in their best interest for the reader to read, not ours. And their best interest is to influence the way we think, the way we dress, the things we eat, what we drink, the medications we take, what stocks we invest in, where we invest our money, where we travel, the way we vote, etc. and on and on, with the list being too extensive to name in this article.  Most importantly, the media and the elitists who own it, need for laws to be passed and enacted that will enable them to continue  with their propaganda and increasing and amassing their great wealth even if it means making the country go bankrupt in the process.

“But that’s anti-American!”

Who ever said the media is owned by Americans?

Do you really think you know who owns the six huge corporations that own basically all the main stream media in the world?

General Electric, News Corp., Disney, Viacom, Time Warner and CBS

The advertisers that support these media companies have tremendous sway over what makes it on the airwaves. These are the companies that make every attempt to control public perception and to control the politicians who get the laws passed that perpetuate their greed and wealth.  Naturally this means that the politician who will do their bidding is the one they will report about more favorably. It makes sense doesn’t it? And also, during an election year, candidates now spend enormous amounts of money on ads against their opponents. Is the light beginning to dawn now?

How many times to do you find yourself asking if the reporter or the anchor is telling you the truth? How often do you find yourself dismayed by facts they present that you didn’t think were possible? Do you find that your opinion is based on what you watch on MSNBC and FOX News or what you read in the Washington Post or the New York Times? Do you ever question the validity of what you saw, heard or read?

I do all the time. Most recently I found myself questioning the Presidential Polls. They didn’t seem to make any sense to me based on my own firsthand knowledge. Overwhelmingly Clinton was beating Trump in all the polls. And yet, with over 4,000 friends on Facebook, I could see a much larger trend in favor of Trump. It continued to baffle me until finally I decided to conduct my very own poll.

Jazziette’s Official Presidential Poll – 2016 …..August 29th, 2016

And so on my Facebook page, of which I have over 4,000 friends, I conducted my own several hour Presidential Poll. I simply asked for those wishing to participate to respond with the candidate of their choice and the state in which they live. I asked that there be no other conversation. I felt that based on the fact that my friends are from all over the country and fall within all demographics that it would be a fairly accurate test of which way the wind was blowing. I was not prepared for the results, however.

I actually thought there would be quite a few that would choose Clinton and I was prepared for it to be a very close poll. But surprisingly, after over 60 responses, these were the results.

Trump – 55, Johnson – 5, Clinton – 2, Stein – 1, Kenison – 1, Paulson – 1 and Dissenters – 4

This poll was definitely not rigged! The voters represented nearly every state in the union, with Texas having the most responses.

After that I checked Donald J Trump’s Facebook page and saw that I had over 450 friends who had liked his page. Then I went to Clinton’s Facebook page and I only had 53 friends who liked her page.

To me this was very revealing. Highly indicative that the numbers we are getting from MSM are not only wrong, they are absolute fabrications. The obvious intent is to make us think that Trump is doing horrible and that we should switch our votes away from Trump, who they use every opportunity possible to turn his words against him. Another highly deceitful practice of the MSM. However, the other and much scarier intent is that the MSM is rigging the polls so that they will match the results of a rigged election. This is cause for grave concern! Remember 2000!!!

I will end by saying I do not know how anyone with love for this country can vote for that woman. In my opinion she shouldn’t even be qualified to run for President of the United States with her track record, not to mention the disgraceful behavior of her husband when he was President. The Presidency isn’t like some crown to be passed from one spouse to another or one family member to another. What a mistake it was electing George W Bush (he was actually appointed by the Supreme Court) who thrust the world into complete and utter chaos when he invaded Iraq, and based on a lie at that.

But Hillary is a very different and far more dangerous candidate than even Bush. She is clever and manipulating. This has been proven as a result of investigations by Congress and the FBI into the handling of her email servers and classified information while she “self-served” as Secretary of State. This has also been proven by the way she has repeatedly lied to cover up her activities in connection with favors given to donors of the Clinton Foundation, which is also under investigation by the FBI. Bush did what he was told to do. Hillary, if elected, will have none of that. She will do exactly as she pleases and that means she will do what benefits her and the special interest groups and countries (including Iran and Saudi Arabia) who are sponsoring her.

Pure and simple. She does not care a whit what the people of this country want. Clinton is the very epitome of the “Establishment”.

God help us all if Hillary Clinton is our next President!

The Devil in the G.O.P.

Will someone please tell me what is wrong with Republicans? Seriously!

It’s time that women everywhere began to stand up to these religious zealots who would take our freedoms away from us. The very idea of anyone trying to tell us we are sinning or committing a crime when we are making decisions regarding our own bodies and our own reproductive rights is beyond absurd! In my opinion it has become so serious that I almost feel like we have a class action lawsuit against the religious institutions that are behind it.

When someone like Paul Ryan, son of Satan himself, tries to introduce a ‘personhood bill’ that would define an ‘organism’ as a human being person the moment of so-called fertilization; with the sole intent to make having an abortion an act of murder, that is an unbelievable infringement on my God-given rights as a human being! And I am fed up to the high heavens with this!

We need to fight back and we need to fight back hard because these lunatics are dead serious! And if Romney and Ryan get elected they WILL overturn Roe vs. Wade and introduce all kinds of wacko religious bills that would send us women far, far back into the dark ages!

We simply cannot allow this to happen!

The very idea of any man trying to tell a woman what to do with her body or that she can’t have contraceptives is criminal in my opinion! For the G.O.P. to continue to support men like Todd Akin, who made the remark that “when a woman is raped her body has ways to shut that whole thing down” is unforgivable!  What an idiot he is. These men know less than zero about women and how their bodies, or minds, work.

And now we have Richard Mourdock saying that a woman should be forced to bear the child of her rapist because it was “what God intended”. Give me a freaking break! Are these people actually running for positions that would allow them to create crazy, out of touch, laws we all would have to abide by? Where do these people come from anyway? Are they a throwback to the Pioneer days or to the 16th Century? I almost don’t know what to say! Seriously!

This is something that has me madder than a wet hornet. And that’s the Republican state Representative from Wisconsin, Roger Rivard, who made the comment recently that “Some girls rape easy.” See, this is what they are all inferring. That if we don’t want to have sex with them and they force it on us that we really did want it even when we didn’t. They are inferring that all women are liars when it comes to rape! This is just so wrong!

And furthermore, this has nothing whatsoever to do with our Government! Or Politics! We need to send a message and a very strong one that we absolutely will not vote for ANYONE who attempts to control our rights as a woman!

I don’t know about you, but I plan to deliver my message this November 6th when I vote for Barack Obama for President.

Enough is Enough! Rape is Rape! A woman’s body is her own! And no one else has the right to make these decisions for her!

For all the religious people who might read this and who want to control me I would like you to consider this. I do not tell you how to live or what religion to belong to or how to control your bodies. I do not think about or worry about how many children you have or if you want to terminate a pregnancy or what you do in the privacy of your own home. I do not tell you who to love and who you can be intimate with.

And I honestly believe that if there really is a God, that he looks down upon this planet and sheds tears at man’s inhumanity to man. Because I do not believe a loving God would ever do or want the things that are constantly accredited to him.

Please, women, wake up before it is too late! Stand up for our rights! Stand up for Planned Parenthood too! I can assure anyone that having no planned parenthood would be much more expensive than having no planned parenthood!

Let’s send a strong message to Republicans to get the Devil out of the G.O.P. and let’s all vote for Barack Obama for President on November 6th, 2012!

So, stand back boys!  We are women! Hear us ROAR!

Election 2012 – The Unsung Heros of Twitter

The power of Social Media is perhaps the most understated factor in this year’s General Election. Who will be our next President and Senators and Congressmen are largely dependent on the social media wars and information and opinions that are generated on Facebook and Twitter. While there are other Social Media outlets, Facebook and Twitter are by far the most active and influential and when you get right down to it…it all comes back to Twitter.

This is why you see the candidates themselves tweeting and gathering followers. This is something money simply can’t buy. No amount of dollars spent on TV advertising can equal the power of tweets and retweets and blogs created and tweeted and the exchange of ideas by so called: twittermates. The hashtags spread like wildfire and what or who is trending is dominated in the Twitter Universe.


Twitter can make you and Twitter can break you. Remember Anthony Weiner? (Who could forget!)!

#OMG-IthinkI’mGoingViral #OMG-OMG-OMG

The very second something (anything) in the world happens it is immediately tweeted and picked up and retweeted all over the world. The announcement that Osama Bin Laden had been killed was announced first by a tweet on Twitter, even before President Obama announced it to the world on TV.

Keith Urbahn @keithurbahnis
So I’m told by a reputable person they have killed Osama Bin Laden. Hot damn.

(This was tweeted over an hour before President Obama’s announcement on May 1, 2011. Keith Urbahn, an aide to former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld)

 Some think  Rumsfeld may have been the reputable person who told Keith. But we all know that isn’t possible!


This is the power of Twitter.  And todays Candidates know it.  And they use it as a campaign tool and very, highly effectively.  Candidates themselves rarely tweet. When they do it is to the delight of their followers and each tweet is retweeted thousands or hundreds of thousands of times.  Campaigns know how powerful and influential Twitter is and they routinely and effectively set up accounts that are created to generate enthusiasm and activity and get results..These accounts mingle among other Twitterers as ‘friends’ without anyone knowing they are indeed ‘plants’.

Their job is to make friends with other active and influential Twittermates to ‘get out the word’, or whatever the campaign’s motive is, to spread throughout Twitterville.  When they want to leak information about the opposition they take to Twitter and can accomplish their goal in a matter of minutes. Information about events, issues, gaffes, etc. are immediately picked up and tweeted out by Twitter.


Every word a Politician or political candidate utters is going to be captured and reported these days and the highlights and especially the gaffes will be tweeted and retweeted until the cows come home. So goes it in Twitterville.

And thus, there are many bloggers who have chosen Twitter as a means to campaign for their chosen candidates and the really, really smart ones have found this to be a highly effective way  to unleash their creativity and ideas as well as help their candidates to get national and even worldwide attention. Never underestimate the power of a Twitter blogger. Never!

And that is what this blog is really all about today – my very favorite political ‘unsung hero’ on Twitter. My favorite blogger – @GottaLaff

@GottaLaff is the creator of  The Political Carnival along with her (highly important) though less visible partner @paddyK. Their blog, my favorite political blog, can be found at thepoliticalcarnival.net  Well, the fact is I don’t know Paddy very well. In fact I don’t know her at all. But Laffy (@GottaLaff) first caught my attention back in 2010.  Gosh it seems like it has been longer than that! ( Hey! @paddyK #FF @jazziette 🙂

@GottaLaff  I swear it has been longer than two years!!!! #LOL #GirlTweets #xoxox


At that time I was busy campaigning for (among other people) MN State Senator Tarryl Clark in her race for Congress against Michele Bachmann. Unfortunately Clark lost that race, but in the process I met and made Twitter friends with some very cool people, one of whom was Laffy. Looking back I recall how I had to turn flips and cartwheels to get her to follow me. But eventually I did and I became addicted to The Political Carnival and each blog that Laffy (and paddy) put up (which were many) each and every day of the week. They were important and they were factual and they always included that famous Laffy sense of humour that made the reading even more fun.

Her tweets about her blogs would often begin with “Miss this?” And then a link to her latest #TPC entry, which was usually the very latest and hottest of news about the election translated into the Laffy version with a smattering of smart ass remarks to go along with it.

I was hooked! I was hooked not just on The Political Carnival. I was hooked on @GottaLaff and I joined the other 25K followers, or so, who are also hooked on this delightful, warm and funny girl from California that no one can get enough of.

What?!?  You may be thinking. If she only has 25K followers (that’s really a LOT) how can she be that influential? Remember this….Twitter is like an enormous Pyramid Scheme. When you tweet something it is picked up by each of your followers who retweet to each of their followers who retweet to each of theirs and on and on and on. The number of people you can reach through ‘just one tweet’ is staggering!

Laffy aka @GottaLaff truly is one of the most popular and influential Tweeters on Twitter and her blog has caught the attention of the most important of political candidates, radio talk show hosts and even television anchors. She has become a frequent guest on mostly radio shows and her opinion is widely sought and respected. Laffy is one of those rare and charismatic people who exude love! She is loved and she loves back. She never misses a chance to show a follower her gratitude for a retweet or a mention on Twitter. She is truly one in a kazillion.

But….as with any other site, organization, club, group, etc….along with fame comes jealousy!

Laffy is a Democrat! She works hard to get Democrats, especially the President, elected and re-elected. And she is fresh! She is credible! She could run for office herself and get elected if she had a mind to. But she doesn’t! She is happy blogging and interacting with her followers. She is honest and patriotic and she believes in her cause! Those who she supports are very appreciative but quite sadly this brings me to the unfortunate fact that not everyone admires those who have talent and spirit. There are some who are jealous and this is where I find the need to point out the dark side of Twitter. That side that most don’t really see and don’t really understand. It’s what goes on behind the scenes and one of the reasons that Twitter has a ‘block feature’. Of course all of us who are site savvy know how to get around that. How? By just creating a new account, a new ID. It’s easy! A 12 year old can teach you how to do that!


And it creeps up just when you least expect it! Kind of like when you were in the first grade and suddenly someone you liked and you thought was your friend comes up to you and says “I don’t like you! You’re not my friend anymore!” And we are hurt and we are shocked and sometimes we cry. Growing up and becoming an adult may help us understand this kind of behavior (not really) but it doesn’t take away the hurt or the sorrow that comes with it.

But wait! We are not dealing with ordinary people anymore. We are in the Social Media. The wonderful world of the internet where people can hide behind their internet masks and say and do things they would never do ‘in real life’. This isn’t real life? Well…yes…there is always someone real behind each tweet, each post, each word that one reads on the web. And that is why our wonderful world of Twitter has been infiltrated, like every other great site on the web, with Trolls and Clones who do all they can to hurt and discredit those they consider competition or who they feel they have too much influence or maybe they are just someone who is jealous of the attention someone else is getting. There are many reasons that Trolls surface.

It was actually rumoured that Facebook employees, in the beginning, were directed to set up Troll accounts on popular social websites and troll users to the point where they eventually fled the sites to Facebook for relief. Is this true? I honestly can’t imagine Mark Zuckerberg doing this. Why would someone do something like that when seeking to build a ‘multi-billion dollar’ social media site? Anyone see the movie? I doubt it is true and actually Facebook has implemented very strong rules against trolling.

“Your account has been de-activated!”

It still amazes me how much certain folks on Twitter can get away with. And honestly, the constant bickering gets so old!  #StopIt The fact is, one cannot be too careful what one writes these days. Thanks to the googlebots our words are etched into eternity.

But still…. the sad truth is that this type of troll activity just seems to be getting worse and worse!  And when it does it causes the one under attack to suffer feelings of helplessness and despair that are difficult to describe. Just absolutely horrible is the description that comes to mind!

Example: My good friend, @GottaLaff (Laffy) has come under this type of attack! Right now! And she is the last person on this planet who deserves to be treated this way!
And that leaves us to wonder why. Is it just jealousy or is there something deeper and darker behind it all. Is someone or someones from the GOP side working to discredit her and hoping to ruin her fabulous reputation?

Or is it just some sick, pathetic, weird, psycho who, for reasons unknown, has launched an attack on her that has not gone unnoticed. It has not gone unnoticed by Laffy and it has not gone unnoticed by her adoring followers!

But never fear @GottaLaff (Laffy) !!! We are here! And we’ve got your BACK!

We all know how to use the ignore and block features! Attacking back only exacerbates and accelerates the situation. There is nothing Trolls and Bullies fear more than being ignored!

But on the other hand…………

POW!     BANG!     BOOM!     CRUNCH!!!!
BOOM!     POW!     BAM!!!!!!
CRUNCH!!!!!!!      BANG!!!!!!!

HAHAHA!!! That felt SOOOOOOOOOOO good!!!

As for Election 2012 –

Hear! Hear! Twittermates! We shall PREVAIL!!!

With the help of unsung heros like YOU and @GottaLaff we WILL win it ALL  in November!



*Thanks to @GottaLaff and @paddyK for permission to use (altercate) pics of Laffy and The Political Carnival!

Herman Cain and “Assassination by Innuendo”

Herman Cain and “Assassination by Innuendo”

‘How the Media gets away with Murder’

by Jazziette Devereaux

(I preface this blog post stating that I am neither a Republican nor a Democrat. I am first and foremost an American citizen and Patriot and when I see what I believe in my heart is a GRAVE injustice I feel it is my DUTY to come forward and tell it like I see it.)

There are some people who “talk the talk” and some people who “walk the walk”.

Republican presidential candidate, Herman Cain, falls into both categories. He practices what he preaches! He backs up what he says with action and his compassionate view of the world is practical also in that he truly believes that “Charity begins at home.”

He practices these beliefs with everyone he knows and in all that he does.

Cain isn’t the only caring, unselfish millionaire in this country. But he is probably the only one who helps others the way he does who also has a firm grasp on what it would take to turn this struggling economy around. And this is exactly why we need to understand and put into perspective exactly what has happened where Herman Cain is concerned.

To begin with, it is baffling to most fair minded people how Mr. Cain has been literally ‘assaulted’ by the news hungry media. It has been a feeding frenzy the likes of which I have never witnessed in any other Presidential campaign or with any other person, be it politician or candidate or private citizen. We have all witnessed the character assassination of Herman Cain live on TV and it has been sad and shameful to watch. In fact it has been downright disgraceful!

Now for the facts. And trust me when I say these ARE the FACTS!

The office of President of the United States IS the most powerful and coveted position in the WORLD! And people will do ANYTHING and I mean ANYTHING to get elected to this office and also to put the candidate of their choice in this office. Why? Mostly it is for monetary gain. Most voters simply don’t understand the real motivation behind those huge donors who back the campaigns and how much money they actually give to these candidates and what they expect in return.

The average voter is far too concerned with taking care of his job and family, etc. to have time to really do the research to understand the “machines” that make sure the candidate of their choice, who will owe them bigtime once elected, does get voted into office.

If you think that people will not KILL for this office be assured that they WILL! They will resort to ANYTHING and EVERYTHING to get their candidate elected. And this means the competition must be eliminated any way they can eliminate them. It doesn’t matter how they do it. Now granted, if suddenly one of the candidates turns up dead you can rest assured the entire country would suspect that something was awry.

So what is their alternative? How can they eliminate a candidate they feel is a REAL THREAT to their ‘Agenda’?

They must find a way to destroy them. And it was really easy for them with Herman Cain.

You see, Mr. Cain grew up “po” as he has written in his book. And he has never forgotten his roots! And while he has overcome the odds of being born black into a society where blacks rode on the back of the bus and drank from a different water fountain. While he has overcome the odds of being born black into a society that suspected a black man every time any crime was committed. While he has overcome the odds of being born black into a society that was still bombing schoolhouses that allowed blacks to go to school with white children. While he has overcome the odds of being born black into a society where the KKK routinely murdered young blacks who attempted to break through the barrier and got involved in the civil rights movement. While he endured and overcame all the unbelievable and incredible odds against him, Herman Cain rose to the top and became one of the most successful black businessmen in the history of our country, who came from this generation where blacks were called “niggers” and treated less than human.

One of the things that has made Herman Cain such a great man is that he has never forgotten where he came from and how blessed, even though he worked hard for it, to have achieved such success in his lifetime. And he has given back. When others reach out to him because they are in financial trouble, Mr. Cain has always been there to help. Why? Because he knows people are human. Why? Because he believes that giving back to others is part of his responsibility as a human being and an American.

And so he has helped many men and women who are less fortunate than he is when they have reached out to them and he expected NOTHING in return. What is very sad is that those who seek to destroy Herman Cain can easily find people who Cain has helped and the sad nature of mankind is that not everyone will remain grateful or thankful for the help they received. They are very easy prey for someone seeking to persuade someone to LIE about why Cain helped them. Why? Because these people are desperate! One of the reasons they are so desperate is because of the dire economical straights this country is in at the present time and those who would seek to destroy Mr. Cain’s credibility as a future President are the very ones who are chiefly responsible for why our country is in such a horrible dilemma. They are the ones who profit from the foreclosures and the bailouts. They are the ones who are bankrolling the campaigns of other candidates who they know will be beholden to them when in office.

Mr. Herman Cain cannot be bought and they know this! This is why they know they must eliminate him so that their candidate can get elected and do exactly as they tell him.

Herman Cain is guilty of one thing. Being a kind and decent and successful human being who has never failed to give back to others less fortunate them himself.

If WE, the American people, allow this travesty to continue: “to drive the one candidate who has the genuine best interest of ALL the people and this country at heart from the campaign trail”. If WE, the American people, continue to allow these self-serving and dangerous individuals and organizations who are behind this destruction of our Democratic system to use the Media in order to accomplish their evil goals, then we will have no one to blame but ourselves for enabling and allowing it to continue.

We must take a stand now and tell them NO!

I beseech everyone who reads this to continue to support Herman Cain for President and to email or call the major networks and tell them you will no longer listen and watch programs that engage in the character assassination of our Presidential candidates.

And if you do not support Herman Cain I STILL URGE YOU TO DO THIS! Because YOUR candidate COULD BE THE NEXT TARGET!

I stand by Herman Cain for President of the United States and I am highly insulted that anyone would think I could be so easily swayed by the false allegations and lies that the media has been airing.

I hope that Herman Cain will stay in this race and make it into the White House. I believe that he can do it! And I believe that he CAN and WILL turn this economy around if only given the opportunity to do so.

If he made it from a “po” little black ‘negro’ riding on the back of the bus, born to a janitor and a maid, and beating all the odds, including colon cancer, to become one of the most successful CEO’s in history; I believe Herman Cain can do anything.

He is the ONLY MAN on the GOP STAGE who has beaten these kinds of odds!

Stay in this campaign, Mr. Cain!


Sarah Palin – More Rouge than Rogue

It’s funny my reaction to Palin announcing she will not run for President in 2012.

I wouldn’t call myself a Palin fan by any stretch of the imagination but I will admit that I have been fascinated by her since she first appeared on the national scene as John McCain’s running mate.

But this fascination was anything but admiration because just about everything she has done has been a turn off to me.

And yet….

When she made the announcement yesterday that she wasn’t going to run I felt an unexpected kind of let down.

I think it’s because I’m a woman.  And I just kind of hated to see the first woman who ever had the kind of support she had as a serious Presidential candidate just throw it all away.  Just like that! Just like it never even meant that much!

I hate to see any woman turn out to be that big of a flake and Sarah, in the final analysis, completely and totally ‘flaked out!



Did she ever, even for one moment, really want to be President?It makes me sad. It makes me sad that there was a woman, any woman,  who had a chance to be the first woman President, not that I wanted her to be mind you, but that she had a chance and blew it so badly!

She didn’t even fight for it.  She didn’t even fight for all her adoring supporters and fans and donors!  She was spineless. Michele Bachmann, with all her wackiness, at least has the balls to try. In the end, Bachmann has more balls than Sarah!

Now…there’s something to write home about! Bachmann’s balls!

If I were Bachmann I would be posing right now holding my gun and my foot on Palin lying on the ground in a ‘Moose Pose’.

(figuratively speaking of course)

And now Palin will fade away just like so many others before her. The only difference in them and her is that in their place in history they will have been viewed as a contender instead of a ‘pretender’.

I’m sure John and Cindy McCain had a great big laugh over it.

Turns out it was all rouge and no rogue!
