Wandering

Ever since I awoke at 7:30 am this morning I feel like I have been wandering.

It has opened up a lot of cans of worms and I wasn’t planning on doing any fishing. Seems as though yesterday’s orthopedist appointment which was an appointment between here and there and after what has transpired wasn’t really necessary. I have been asking myself a lot of questions, spinning my wheels in circles, and greatly afraid I have lost my purpose and sense of direction.

I woke up this morning as a result of my injuries and decided I needed to be back in school for the fall and work the Clinton campaign around it. I called the registrar’s office and confirmed courses I wanted to take were available and I then started going sideways. Things weren’t working out 100 percent with returning to school and all my injuries and needed operations and physical therapy.

I got everything in place money wise and just couldn’t commit to another semester bogged down by physical ailments. I opted hollowly to stay the course and stay out of school one more semester while I take care of my body and I hopefully work as a fellow now for the Clinton campaign.

I am all nerved up. I don’t feel my confident self and a lot of things are happening and time is passing and I am not hitting goal marks like I desired. If I went to school full-time this semester and the next two semesters I would be in a position for a job in the field I want by the end of next summer.

I am obviously missing that mark and all the marks in between staying out of school without a real possibility of going this semester because of my physical ailments. I have caught myself looking at pictures from 15 and 20 years ago when I actually felt like I had the world at my fingertips and now I wonder can I get my finger tips on something big, something ground moving, something that speaks of Corey Britton and what I did in the past so very long ago?

I am not an idiot I realize not going back to school takes away hopes and dreams that if I had returned this semester would have still been alive by the very nature of moving forward with school. I am thinking that I might enroll in a couple of late start courses that are only 12 weeks in duration and it buys me another month. I can get one surgery done then and concentrate on physical therapy but this Corey Britton is in definite need of a new revitalized vision board of my dreams.

What is so hard is the feeling as I get ready to turn forty in a month or so, that my life, my larger than life life is out of my league now. I am embarrassed to write this, leveled to feel it, but I am a rainmaker I do lots of things and opportunity has always found me. Why am I not so sure? I am at multiple cross roads for starters.

A lot of my success comes from or is derived from money. I have had this unreasonable goal for about eight years that got me back to school as a way of getting as close as possible I thought to this financial goal. It is lofty to say the least and maybe if I didn’t have mania it wouldn’t be so grandiose but I have wanted it, I have dreamed of it, thought of life with it in hand. I saw the life in this one picture I wanted to obtain.

There are lots of ways to this goal, luck for gosh sakes could be one of them but there are other options available to keep Corey Britton in the game. I think as all I want to do is go to sleep and escape this is that my first part of my answer comes from what I fettered out here this afternoon-getting into school for late start courses.

I think that is key as for the last two years being a high level student has been my identity. I need it I crave it. So I will go to school just later than the start of the semester next week. That is a relief and I couldn’t wrap my mind around anything that didn’t involve going back to school this fall. So there Corey, you will be a thriving student again just 4 weeks later than planned and it makes the most sense with my needed surgeries.

I need to figure out my next phase of my life. It is striking me that it is clearly upon me and I don’t have things all figured out down to the T like the perfectionist-control freak I am. I think about lost opportunities and I am dwelling on things I can’t change. Life is and I am and together I need to continue to live and write my story. The problem is, I thought I knew the kick ass next chapter and I don’t.

I will give it up to the Universe today and if I could I would go to the store and buy a lottery ticket. I don’t know why my ultimate success after raising my daughter and any other children I might have is wrapped itself in money. I am money based. No I don’t have any financial hardship just the opposite and I feel the need, I feel compelled to attain a level that few get to no matter what they do.

I don’t deal with reality very well so let’s let that one go and focus on creating opportunities for myself for growth and wealth. Sounds so shallow but it is how I am wired. I need back into the game I walked away from and I have no idea really how to get back there.

I think for today I am calling it and feel blessed that I decided to go to school for late start. My dreams are shaky but they are still alive.

Now I am going to write in my journal and focus on what my vision board is going to look like. Stephanie is a dream come true and life isn’t that bad but today and yesterday have been leveling.

I will get the paper tomorrow for the vision board. Go to school next week to see about late start classes and get myself going with getting my body back to well. With anorexia still lingering and multiple broken bones I haven’t had a chance to get confident and get a game face back on.

I am grateful for this moment to write and to feel the discomfort I have been harboring inside of myself. It is time to get real, stop the pity party, and make the best I can with whatever I got, I get, or I create. That will all follow in the days ahead. I leave not a wander but a wonderer this afternoon.

The Don Just Needs To Keep on Talking-Clinton is Worst Own Enemy

Yesterday the Don did an about face on immigration especially when it comes to the Obama administration.

Unlike before when the Don repeatedly promised to deport over 10,000,000 illegal immigrants the Don know says strict laws like those being followed by the Obama administration need to be continued and will be under his presidency.

Gone is the hard line rhetoric and divisiveness of the primary election for the Don. The Don is learning in a presidential election you need to appeal as more of a centrist. He hasn’t at all reached out to the Latino population on issues of immigration or anything else of that nature.

Basically he is treated the African Americans the same way. He isn’t dealing with them and has only 8 percent of their national support. What is it about the Don. He intentionally opted to ride to victory on white middle-class men and now with his pull back on almost every issue he stands to lose the voter base he had and not gain anyone with his shifts in attitudes.

Anyone dumb enough to believe the Don who has had a week free of chaos is changing is in for a real rude fuck up the ass awakening come the day after the election when the Don returns to his old self. There is no way the Don is presidential in nature in anybody’s books and to try to foul the American people now with all the antics he has played out is pure ludicrous.

The Don is always mentioning Clinton’s ties to the Street and her speaking engagement fees his corporations are in debt to these very institutions for over 650 million dollars. Who needs the street more the Don or Clinton? The Don has repeatedly said he doesn’t need the Street’s money that is bullshit he isn’t sunk because of it for gosh sakes.

Yesterday the Don hit pretty low and very inaccurately by calling Clinton a bigot. The Don stated the only thing Clinton sees in color is votes which I find in itself a very racist comment. As stated by MSN.com Clinton said, “He is taking a hate movement mainstream,” she told CNN’s Anderson Cooper in a phone interview. He who hates women, all minorities, especially Muslims, and women, and makes fun of disabled people. He is one to really talk. He has said if we can believe anything he has said to be true he will revoke the marriage equality law passed a year ago June 27th, 2015 by SCOTUS. He has no time or energy or even worse care for the LGBT community. I think it is a joke gone bad that the Don called Clinton a bigot.

Speaking of Clinton she must be bracing herself. Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks is set to unleash personal and private files having to do with Clinton’s campaign. His organization hacked the DNC for this information and I don’t care what is in it I don’t think any proper news organization should use WikiLeaks information in their coverage of a candidate. As a college student I am not allowed to cite WikiLeaks in any formal academic paper. Newspapers and news casts should not be allowed be to take WikiLeaks criminalized information and use it in their reporting. Julian Assange has a personal vendetta against Clinton and is using means of hacking DNC databases and servers to produce criminalized private information. It is not okay and he as well as the news agencies using his information need to be held accountable to the highest courts. This already happened at the DNC convention and caused quite a stir up in the leadership during the first couple of days.

Clinton is holding steady with a solid 9-11 point lead in the polls nationally.

Don’t look for the Don to release his tax returns anytime ever really. He has said all along while under an audit he would not release his returns. There are no laws that prevent him from doing so, in fact when Nixon was running he was under an audit and released his tax returns just the same. The Don’s campaign manager has been behind the Don to release his tax returns that was until this past weekend. Now she agrees he should not release his returns. What is it that the Don might not want the public to see. That he is worth only 3 billion 6 billion short of his own estimate, that he doesn’t pay taxes because taxes in real estate are tricky with depreciation etc.? Is it that he doesn’t give to charities? What would make the Don not release his records? One person’s answer was that as a business man which is how the Don views himself and probably will after January 17th, 2017 he doesn’t want to give his competitors access to his personal wealth. Okay, so maybe that is the reason, but every presidential candidate should have to release their tax records. His 650 million dollars in corporate debt is staggering and the Don makes no bones that he makes his money heavily using debt.

When it comes to Clinton her recent released emails their is no favors found in the emails of her being Secretary of State and the Clinton Foundation just maybe access to her. There is a big difference but most people advising Clinton are telling her to put out the Clinton Foundation and lay it in moth balls. Not a good idea and too risky a proposition.

There lastly appears to be some conspiracy theory on Clinton’s health being spun by none other than Rudy who has always wanted a dog fight with Clinton and Trump playing second man on the questioning of Clinton’s health. Pretty desperate accusations to make about a thriving candidate.

Stay tuned for a follow up to the ALT-Right theory Clinton is going to unveil today on Trump and his campaign leaders. It is damaging and dangerous thoughts for our country to have to consider. I will let Clinton speak to it before commenting.

For the last word I will give it to the head of the RNC who is pleased as punch with the Don’s week of using teleprompters and staying on message. I loosely quote him, “Give Trump to Labor at the latest to catch up to Clinton in the polls.” Okay one week of normal behavior we all know is a guise is somehow going to change the polls? The only person who can hurt Clinton is Clinton with whatever is hanging out there about her emails……..

Predictability The Good and the Not So Good-Does Anyone Really Care?

Predictability is important when dealing with the grown up world and raising children to some extent.

I am both a predictable and an unpredictable person. I am predictable because very really will I be predictable and you can count on that.

I wake up everyday at different hours but then follow a fairly predicable regime of going to the store with my pug Julia Bleu and making our one of a kind same as every day cup of coffee. Predictable.

Then when I get home from the store I take my prescribed Adderall and drink my golden elixir. Every day except the time is predictable up into this point.

Depending whether I am in school which I am not right now I blog for two sites hopefully by 8am. My topics range from ongoing story lines like anorexia to off the wall stuff like today’s predictability.

I am predictable in that I devote between 4 and 6 hours of writing every morning during this semi-fluid time space and share the moment with my pug, Julia Bleu.

I write or I research the entire time I have set aside for blogging in this case. If I were in school it would be devoted solely to my biggest and hardest projects I had going on at school regardless of what other work I needed to complete for assignments due that day. Those sacred hours only exist between 12:30-6 am every day of the week and are when I am by far the most productive and most creative. My hyper-focused senses are crazy during this time.

At some point during this time, Julia Bleu catches my attention enough at least once to get me out of my chair and go feed and give her water. That is the only time I am not writing or researching. No I don’t read other blogs then, and I never do reading for school during that period. It is known as the maniac’s hours as I am a suffer of pure mania.

After 6 am everything is up for grabs. At least one blog needs to get posted before I move so that happens as rough as it can get. After the blog or blogs are posted I try to do crazy-assed cleaning up of my place, including no dishes left in sink, bed made, and no dirty clothes on the floor.

If I don’t have school I will walk the pug and come back to my second blog of the morning. Blogging and school haven’t happened together so there will be some cutting back-only getting one blog posted in the morning. Usually I need until 10 am to polish the second blog and maybe take a spin around Facebook.

With school I will be doing my crazy cleaning and then getting ready to take the bus to campus. If I have reading and a response to do I will get hyper-focused on the bus and try no matter how many pages to get them all read before the bus stops at school. I don’t generally take a class before 10 am so to the working library I head with all my gadgets and gizomos to settle down into course work mode. Usually this is writing and then responding to other people’s writing and involves research and is pretty dreadful honestly. I am guaranteed two days a week of that.

Now that I am not in school because of the Clinton campaign and my two semester commitment I work on the campaign loosely, blog more, Facebook it- really not make good use of my time until after lunch. If I am in school I attend classes pretty much all day as I set up class and non class days. This system really helps me although the class days can be killers.

Right now when I am not in school the Clinton campaign work fits around my priorities. After lunch if I am not in school is time to read blogs, answer comments, and blog one final post hopefully by 7 pm. I am doing a lot during that time the campaign, blogging, correspondence, reading, and a host of my ever lasting to-do list. If I am in school I get home around 4:30 pm and I immediately play with Julia Bleu. She gets my hands down attention. I realize she has had a long day at home. I feed her, walk her, take her to the store all before I grab my requisite yogurt and applesauce and Corey’s Chronicles start up. Yes this is my super amped up intense life. If I am in school I am going to be working on a programming assignment or project for commuter science. When I am not in school I read and research more, develop topics for tomorrow’s blogs and keep the ongoing story lines I have going alive and not forgotten.

I believe once I am back in school Corey’s Chronicles will be for both programming and a second blog I really need to write twice a day. Hasn’t happened yet so we shall see.

My fiancé Stephanie comes over every night and depending on the day and schedule I might have my Phenom, my daughter Bella as well over night. When Bella is here or I am with her anywhere she is top priority no matter what. I probably have missed one time with her because of the campaign and it was critical.

I am spontaneous so everything I just wrote can go flying out the window but my goals will get done regardless of time and logical thinking and behavior.

The Don On Wednesday Morning August 24th, 2016

A quick survey of stories involving the Don jumped from the pages of major news sources this early Wednesday morning.

Starting with the dismal appeal of the Don to the African American voter across the country. Since May the Don has held between 6-8 percent of the country’s black vote. For a demographic that usually votes predominately Democratic the numbers still staggering low. In swing states like Pennsylvania the Don hold’s 1 percent of the African American vote. In the past the Republicans have tried to make headways with the African Americans to swing states like Georgia to the Republicans and stave off a run away from a swing state like Pennsylvania. Polling numbers for White Supremacist, David Duke are higher than Trump’s numbers.

The Don met with a group of over 100 black pastors in June hoping to get them to go spread the Trump message. The love fest didn’t happen although the Don confirms there was a lot of love in that room that day. It isn’t the case for the Don in the real polling world. Following his presumptive re-election bid in 2020 the Don has said he will capture 95 % of the African American vote. Where the Don is spinning this shit is beyond me.

Speaking of spinning shit seems like that is what is happening to the rental rates at Trump Towers where the Don isn’t only the owner but the renter for his campaign headquarters. In July of 2015 the rent was around 26,000 until August where it was bumped up to over 35,000 until the end of May 2016, when it increased to over 70,000 Then in June 2016 when the Don added an additional floor and a half of campaign space his rents are now well above 170,000 and he is only donating a set 2 million a month to his own campaign compared with before when he paid for almost everything. Clinton’s rent is higher, although she is not paying herself. She also has over 700 paid staffers compared to the Don’s 100 paid staffers. Funny how rents and donations change just like that! Trump has spent over 600,000 dollars to rent out other Trump facilities for activities and reimbursed his airline over 450,000 dollars at the same time.

Lastly there is the Don’s wavering positions from immigration to foreign policy and everything in between. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has said that Trump stands for absolutely nothing! He has no solid platform upon which to build his candidacy. When it comes specifically to immigration it seems as though the Don has softened and in doing so is not wanting to spread the word. There is still talk of a wall (maybe) but carefully crafted words (not a phrase used to preface the Don) have him talking about now the legal immigrants who are here and need to be protected so forget about the 10,000,000 deportations that were set to go into place on his first day in office.

I don’t make this stuff up, I don’t fluff it up, and I don’t incite. I merely write on what has been made public knowledge and accepted as truth by the Don himself. Whether he agrees with cancelling two rallies later in the week add up to him avoiding immigration well we can debate that. He isn’t missing the fundraiser the night before in Colorado. That is a fact!

Mon Carlin Julia Bleu Conçu Pour Moi

18f7b-juliableu

My pug Julia Bleu was no doubt destined for me.

We picked her out as pick of the litter at just two days old

A twin of one only other black, of that which we required along with being a female

She was perfectly desired.

I spent every week until she was old enough visiting her every Saturday

Now she is home, she lives with me, she eats and sleeps with me.

This pug is not just a another dog, she is my best friend tried and true.

When people met the two of us they  comment on how we were designed to be two

Without her my world would collapse I would no longer go on the same

For nothing that is designed for you can ever be replaced nor will it always remain.

Trump Illegal Immigrants Collecting Social Security and Clinton Gaffes

In the Don’s first political ad against Clinton aired on August 19th a dubbed over Don’s voice is heard stating , “In Hillary Clinton’s America, illegal immigrants are skipping the line and receiving social security benefits.” This simply isn’t  true. According to the National Immigration Law Center immigrants must be paying taxes, and to do that you need a social security number which they can get once they have their work visa.  Then immigrants must work for a minimum of 10 years and be of retirement age to collect benefits. **FACT CHECKED**

This is a far cry from what the Don said after  just paying  big money to run in his campaign.

There are signs in the Don’s campaign that he is settling down and staying more on track with his messages as he uses more teleprompters and does fewer rallies.

This all comes at a particularly odd time for Trump’s senior strategist Paul Manafort to leave the Don’s campaign. It isn’t surprising to the people aware of the 12 plus million dollar payout Manafort is set to receive from the Ukraine. Typically, these types of issues are vetted out prior to bringing someone on board, and a demotion would not suffice in this instance with the Ukraine payout set for Manafort. These brings Putin and Russia back into the light again for the Don’s campaign.

On Clinton’s campaign a judge has ruled that Clinton must answer written questions by the FBI in regards to her on-going email server issues. Coupled with that is the oddity of self-imposed restrictions that Clinton said would be put in place if she in fact won the Presidency and the acceptable donors allowed under these restrictions for the Clinton Foundation. Right now under those new donor guidelines Clinton would adopt if made President less than half the current list of donors would be eligible to donate.

This begs to ask bigger, broader questions in general regarding the Clinton Foundation and her role as former Secretary of State.

None of this is made up folks and every day the waters for both candidates gets muddier and muddier.

Mountain Over Mountain

After falling on Wednesday and smashing my knee caps and hurting my thumb and wrist I finally saw the orthopedic surgeon yesterday.

It appears I have mountains over mountains to climb with my come back to Corey and all the glory.

It started with a bad doctor’s appointment yesterday where my doctor told me I needed probably three surgeries. One on my already busted knee to reconstruct my patella ligament.

Then today I have an emergency MRI on my newly injured good leg. I know it is going to be a short time until they operate on it probably next week.

Then there is my poor little thumb already reconstructed two times. I have a cast on it and see the hand surgeon on September 5th, 2016.

I have many medical mountains to climb as at the same time I return to school for fall semester. I am nervous about the knee surgeries I always said I would never let them open up my good knee ever! But I can’t stand on it and when I try to bend it, it gets stuck.

I am not very hopeful about this MRI and with the doctor ordering an emergency one I know he thinks there is something bad going on inside of it. I never thought I would see the day where  my good knee hurts worse than my bad one.

That was only part of yesterday-the other part was starting a new evolution and figuring out my immediate priorities.  Getting my body fixed with the injuries is at the top of the list with my overcoming my anorexia. I need to do them both right now.

I also need to more forward with my schooling plans as I sort them out. I am most certainly leaving the Clinton campaign in the capacity I work for it right now.

Being out of school is not good for me and I am determined to get back to Corey and all the things I once used to do inside of school and out.

I will keep the blogging still going and I will knock off the surgeries one by one until I get them all caught up. Each one will require some amount of rehabilitation and will be down in the order of severity. I think that means my good knee gets operated on first.

After the surgeries I have academic and political mountains to climb and descend. I must get back into school no matter what my surgeries look like. I have decided I can’t take another semester off of school.

It is just not worth it and I don’t fully believe Clinton and her email crap. I know one thing she would never put her life out there for anyone but herself and if she were me she would stay focused on her schooling and not let anything get in the way of that. I need to do the same I have positioned myself so well academically it is foolish to but it off to the side.  I will still have time to work on the state level and even maybe multiple state levels. But right now after today and my MRI and seeing Bella this weekend I am on campus on Monday morning to meet with advising to sign up for fall classes and also get ready to switch my concentration to computer science which will entail me taking more general courses. I am fine with that because it is the smartest thing I can do educationally major in computer science and data analytics. It puts me as an underrepresented minority as a person in the field of computer science and guarantees me I wont have to pay for anything further to get my PhD.

The sprint Evolution is really coming together in less than a week. I will have lots of paperwork and phone calls as well medical appointments. But the crux of my Evolution will have been addressed in less than a week and then it is just carrying it all out to fruition.

I am nervous about today but know the sooner I know what is going on it will only start then to get better. I hope it is just a little bit of cartilage but I am not certain.

I am spending the afternoon with Bella and hopefully my legs will not be too bad to do the walking she wants to do around the mall. We are going to catch a movie at first and then head out for Mexican and finish up at the mall to do some clothes shopping. I am hoping my legs and hands and can handle all of that.  I am sure where it is Bella I will be able to do just about anything to make her happy.

I need to work on my Evolution list and see exactly what I can knock off today. I will remain hopeful with my MRI and pray it is just a torn piece of cartiledge. Other than that some of it is out of my hands and in God”s fate. I can’t alter the damage I did or the injuries I endured because of the anorexia.

I must make it a priority to contact the Clinton campaign and let them know I will be heading back to school. I don’t want to surprise anyone negatively about my return to school. I will continue to support the campaign as much as I can and still more forward with my school plans.

One mountain at a time……..

Dulled

Ever since getting hurt in May when I fractured my leg and hand I have been slipping in the anorexia department.

It started quite innocuously with missing eating due to surgery and pain. Then the surgeries were past, the pain was tolerable and yet my eating continued to slide.

As I am in the process of picking myself up from one of my worst days ever and starting on a new Evolution I have come to sadly realize how dulled I have become.

An Evolution is a time concept I designed to break up my year and track and journal specific goals and to-dos for a set of time that I determine. This is a great way to identify key things in an objective way as well as a personal way.

I have been doing Evolutions going on two years. They all very in time. Right now I am doing a sprint Evolution only-to cover some major ground that without my evolution system would be a lot harder to manage.

My sprint  Evolution started yesterday and runs through Labor day. It is the shortest evolution I have ever done. I just take a composition notebook, duct tape the hell out of it for my own personalization and then tape a sticker on the cover stating what evolution it is (number wise) and include the date range it covers.

When I am complete with the time frame, before I set up my next evolution I look back and evaluate all that I set out to do on the very first page of the book. The rest of the book is journaling how I am getting there and when I actually fully accomplish something.

So when I sat down yesterday to set up my sprint Evolution, I was forced to take stock in all that hasn’t happened in the last months. This may be a good thing if I have been engrossed accomplishing other things.

Unfortunately that was not the case for this Evolution. I was forced as I vowed my Phoenix to rise from the ashes to deal with how dull my edges to my person on all levels have become due to this anorexia.

I am so far from the Corey Britton everyone knows and cares about no wonder I am in hiding so to speak. I have lost my spunk that quickly returned yesterday with my feistiness for life and interactions. Once I deemed myself acting as a victim to anorexia it was a done deal. Coupled with the radically Radical Will I am engaging in now I can see clearly how I have been lost to myself and to others; almost forgotten.

Well we know that is going to change. Today at 8 am I  see my surgeon for the latest setback to my injuries, I am ready and wiling to do whatever it takes to get back towards forward motion and never posting another ER picture on Facebook again.

I am by nature confident (said in a polite way) over-confident and cocky with reason is more like it and so much more like Corey.

I have fallen so far I have yet to glimpse the tops of the goals I set out for myself but I know they are there and the opportunities they afford me are still there waiting for me to come and  climb to the apex.

I won’t be climbing higher than ground level for awhile. You see I am a realist to a fault. I am real about myself as much as I am real about you. If you want my opinion you must be ready for brutal truth and honesty as I put myself through even much harsher paces. If you don’t warrant or desire my opinion then I keep it to myself as I am not into the life of being caught up in anyone else’s stuff other than that which makes up my Universe.

So no climbing above ground level for quite some time for me. I am in one deep dark hole and finally after much free fall reached the bottom of my hole in the ER on Wednesday.

I am also such a realist I know this didn’t happen over night and my way to climbing above ground level comes with my constant and steady pace upward and forward. I am no fool there will be unexpected bumps, holes, even maybe a free lift to a certain point. Life is funny like that and that is why I have until recently been so full of it my entire life.

I will work hard, and on this blog you will see the changes in my writing, my tone, just in myself as  a person. Yes I am confident. “I know what I bring to the table and I am not afraid to eat alone.” (Anonymous)  I have in my life spent a great deal of it alone climbing goals and achieving them that others said I couldn’t. If you want to guarantee I will die trying to do something, just tell this old Corey that is back it can’t be done!

Trump Apologizes-Clinton Rare Brain Disorder? No I Didn’t Make It Up

Yes it happened yesterday. The Don apologized for some of his comments and actions that have hurt other people and caused them pain.

Reading from teleprompters for the second time in two days Trump didn’t specify who he was apologizing to but admitted he had caused personal pain to others and regretted it.

Clinton is on to this big time. She is aware of the about face Trump might be trying to pull off to get his campaign back on track.

Since the Don’s political campaign shakeup we have seen a more tempered and somewhat presidential Don; if that is really possible.

The GOP has all but given up on Trump and most Republicans want to focus on preserving the other seats at risk. The  GOP warned the Don to get himself together and stick to the economy and trade in the red states where Clinton until recently didn’t have a chance.

When it comes to ludicrous I can’t think of a bigger school yard bully than the Don. Now he goes after Clinton for not political differences but this time in terms of concerns about her health. Rumors have stemmed from the Don’s camp that Clinton is suffering from a rare brain disorder makes it hard for her to understand language and to speak.

I am not sure who the Don is referring to because I have recently heard Clinton speak and it was with great intensity and a well-driven home message. Clinton’s doctor who has been her personal doctor for many years says the piece of medical information the Don is claiming was not written by her or anyone else associated with Clinton’s medical health. The doctor reiterated the fact that Clinton was more than fit to be the president of the United States.

It appears it might be too little too late for the Don. His would be supporters are pulling away and others don’t believe his temperament even if he changes it for the short term of the election would be changed undoubtedly once he reached office.

On the issue of Clinton, her emails, and her FBI interview it has come to light that Clinton has stated that it was Colin Powell who told her to use her own email server after she was already doing so. There was a dinner when Clinton first became Secretary of State with Madeline Albright, Condoleezza Rice, and Colin Powell. One person suggested they go around the table and offer Clinton one piece of advice. Powell’s advice was to use her private email server for less  than highly classified emails.

Also noteworthy on the Clinton front is the headline stating Clinton’s aides show no proof of attending mandatory ethics training. Very little has been posted on this story so I believe they are trying to sort through the madness.

Politicos are worried about a Clinton presidency, which seems highly plausible due to the factor that she isn’t winning or going to win on the issues, she is going to win solely because the Don is unfit.

This leaves Clinton without clear mandates from the electorate as to what she needs to accomplish from voters perspectives. As it stands now with Clinton, she would have to start from ground zero to initiate a policy or program instead of doing that and laying the ground work out during the general election. This is not a good situation for Clinton or the country as we head into the new year.

This election is becoming not about Hilary becoming President but mainly of the Don not becoming President.
