Presidential Race Analysis - October 28, 2015
Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic Presidential nominee running in 2016. Bernie Sanders was a distant second place in the polls, and after the Democratic debate on October 13, Hillary strengthened her lead. She didn't do great, but okay. However, there were just four other candidates who all were disappointing, so Hillary did relatively well. Bernie Sanders had a mediocre performance and could not improve desperately needed ratings to compete with Hillary. The other three never were on the radar map, and never will be. Two of them so far dropped out.
With Hillary Clinton destined to be the Democratic Presidential nominee, how will she fare in the final election? Nothing is certain so early, but much of it will be determined who the Republican nominee will be. She won't have many advantages Barack Obama had during his campaigns of 2008 and 2012. Obama had stronger support, compared to past Democratic Presidential candidates, from voters who are young (age 18 to 29), minorities, and women.
Hillary will likely retain strong support from women voters similar to Obama. However, it's skeptical if she will do as well with the young and minorities as Obama. Obama was age 48 old when he was campaigning in 2008. Hillary will be age 69 turning 70 during the campaign. For minority voters, it's been historically proven Black and Hispanic voters vote 89% and 62% Democrat during Presidential elections. When Obama was running, Black and Hispanic voters voting for him shot up to 93% and 69%, and voter turnout of minorities increased. With Hillary running, Black and Hispanic voters will likely return to normal levels of 89% and 62%, and turnout will be a little lower to normal levels.
Much of Hillary's success will be determined by the Republican nominee who is running against her.
The two GOP candidates in the top tier (20+ poll ratings) are Donald Trump and Ben Carson.
Donald Trump - Everyone knows him, and his celebrity status is the highest among all Republican and Democratic candidates, which translates well into the polls. Although I don't see how someone who is arrogant, throws childish insults and tantrums against so many people, and involved in some controversial and risky businesses like casinos is going to win the general election, Donald Trump has shown determination and mastered the television, video, and social media. He has surpassed all expectations. A few months ago, polls showing him running against Hillary shows Hillary the strong winner by a wide margin. Now those matchup polls show Donald just a few points behind Hillary, within the margin of error.
Ben Carson - I think he has the best chance of beating Hillary and becoming the next President. Ben Carson was in a steady second place the last few months. Now Ben has been catching up to Donald, almost tied and both of them fluctuating a few points either way. In other words, Ben Carson is about tied with Donald Trump.
Matchup polls of Ben Carson vs Hillary Clinton show Ben ahead a few points, but usually in the margin of error. He is a Black man who grew up in a poor area in Detroit raised by a single mother. He worked hard and diligently to become a successful neurosurgeon, which will help win minority voters. While Black and Hispanic voters are not going to vote Republican in the majority, Ben Carson will most likely limit the Black voters to less than 85% Democrat and Hispanic voters to less than 60% Democrat. In a very close Presidential race, this will be enough to lead Ben Carson to victory.
The GOP candidates in the second tier (5 to 12 percent poll ratings) are Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Carla Fiorina. There will only be one Republican Presidential candidate running in 2016, and even coming a close second is not good enough. These guys in the second tier are nowhere close to even second place, so if they don't significantly improve by December, they are effectively gone for 2016.
Third tier, not even close, and not worth the time mentioning them.

Preliminary Review of the 2016 Presidential Race
Even though the 2016 Presidential race is over a year away, everyone involved is getting ready for the big election. It's impossible to predict the outcome this early, but pundits and researchers can start making educated insights now. What's in store for the Republicans and Democrats in 2016?
Since President Obama was elected in 2008, it's been a consistent change of power every two years, where Democrats would dominate in the Presidential elections and Republicans would dominate to a somewhat lesser degree, since the President's seat is not involved, in the mid-term elections.
Obama isn't running in 2016, and we also learned that past traditions, trends, and loyalties of voters can be very soon forgotten and changed. With trends changing so fast in Washington D.C., it looks like the Republicans have a head start so far for the 2016 elections. Here's how.
American Voters like to see a balance of power and competition
Especially at the highest seat, the President, Americans voters like to see a balance of power and competition. We had a Democratic President for two terms, so history shows the voters are open toward the other party.
Obama's most popular agenda, raising taxes on the rich, is already done
Back in 2008, there was a strong public demand to eliminate Bush's disastrously failed economic policies of cutting taxes for the rich. Obama brought back most of the taxes for the rich, and while it was a little shorter than expected, the deficit was made up with higher Obama health care taxes on the rich, and numerous state and local governments raising taxes on the rich.
In 2016, raising taxes on the rich is no longer a high public demand. In economics, the only high public demand for 2016 that favors the Democrats is raising the minimum wage. However, it won't be as strong as raising taxes on the rich back in 2008.
Republicans have more candidates running and better choices
Republicans have more candidates running, and better choices than in 2008 and 2012 (remember when Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich were the only serious competitors to Mitt Romney during the primaries, not that Mitt Romney was even a good candidate himself?) As of September 16 they already had two nationally televised debates, and many of the GOP candidates are getting their campaigns in good motion and getting good publicity. This schedule of Republican and Democrat Presidential debates on national TV show the Republicans have almost twice as many national debates than the Democrats.
On the other hand, the Democrats seem to have less than half the number of candidates than the Republicans. The only Democratic candidates that have a realistic change of being nominated are Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Joe Biden. Hillary hasn't got her campaign started to any significant degree, when now is the time to get started. Her limited time on the media has been hampered with stories like how she manages her emails on a private email server and her trustworthy reputation has been going down, rather than drawing energetic rallies of thousands of people at a time. Bernie Sanders is a Senator from Vermont with little name recognition across the nation, and he's old at age 76. Joe Biden has not even officially declared that he's running for President, but the situation with the Democrats has gotten so bad, people are urging him to run for President.
It's way too early to tell who will likely win the 2016 elections, but the Democrats better get their acts together, very soon and very fast. Politics is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.

Confederate Flags get taken down at record pace
Here is a current status of Confederate flags being taken down across America.
Hillsborough County, Florida
Legislation pending to take down:
Virginia & North Carolina - Remove confederate symbol from license plates
The largest retailer, Walmart, is no longer selling merchandise with Confederate symbols. Many Companies, retailers, and celebrities are following the same trend.
Race and Police Arrests
On the other hand, June 5 in McKinney, Texas, a white officer named Eric Casebolt arrests a 15 year old Black girl who committed no crime, unarmed in a bikini, with excessive police brutality.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles - White males can be a serious endangerment
Germanwings Flight 9525 Crash
On 24 March 2015, a Germanwings aircraft , an Airbus A320-200, crashed into the French Alps, resulting in the death of 144 passengers and 6 crew members. This was a deliberate and malicious murder suicide plot by co-pilot Andreas Lubitz (shown above). He was a white male who was suffering from severe depression problems (sounds like Steve Sailer and his audience). When the pilot momentarily left the cockpit during flight over France, Andreas Lubitz then locked the cockpit door with only himself inside the cockpit. Andreas Lubitz then descended the plane until the plane struck a mountain in the French Alps, killing everyone abroad in one of the world's worst murder suicide plot.
Amtrak Train Derailment in Philadelphia, PA
On May 12, 2015, an Amtrak train was bound from Washington, D.C. for New York City. While traversing through Philadelphia, PA, the train was traveling 102 mph along a curve with a speed limit of 50 mph. The train derailed in a disastrous and tragic accident, and of all 243 people on board, 8 were killed and over 200 injured, 11 critically.
The driver of the Amtrak train, which is called the engineer, is Brandon Bostian. He is a 32 year old white male responsible for one of the worst train accidents in history. His last public statements so far in mid-May was that he cannot remember anything about the crash, and he is not saying anything except through his lawyer. Typical defensive mechanism to lie by saying you can't remember anything, but that is the typical procedure when you are responsible for a reckless and horrific accident with lives lost and numerous serious injuries.
School Buses collide in Knoxville, TN
On December 2014, 48 year old school bus driver James Davenport was driving a bus of children in Knowville, Tenessee. He suddenly made a sharp left turn, crossing the concrete median, then crashed head on to another school bus. James Davenport was injured, and the worst fatalities were 3 people passengers who died, 6 year old Zykia Burns, 7 year old Seraya Glasper, and 46 year old teacher's aide Kimberly Riddle.
After a 6 month investigation, the police concluded James Davenport caused the accident because he was texting on his cell phone while driving. James Davenport suddenly died on June 1, 2015 at his home and that death is under investigation. Nevertheless, it shows everyone while males don't make better drivers. This is a recent article on James Davenport, the accident, and the police investigation.

Jon Entine: Pseudo-Journalist, Divorced felon guilty of domestic violence and child abuse
What has Jon Entine done since he wrote the book Taboo in 2000? Even though he has no credentials in genetics, he wrote a book in 2007 called Abraham's Children, where he provides more of his pseudo-analysis on the genes and ancestry of Jewish people. He also produced some documentaries after that criticizing the American agricultural industry for their use of pesticides.
Just as Jon Entine can make criticizing attacks on the U.S. agricultural industry and other people based on shoddy journalism, those being unfairly attacked can find fault with him. What has gone on with Jon Entine's personal life? This article by Natural News exposes the truth on Jon Entine - He is a divorced father and criminal guilty of domestic violence and child abuse.
Jon Entine has had marital and family problems for a long time. When he was married to then wife Ellen Turner before 2006, they were having serious domestic violence problems for awhile. In January of 2005, Entine's then wife Ellen Turner sought a court restraining order against him that demanded he refrain from physically injuring her person or abusing their child. Court documents from Hamilton County, Ohio revealed some very disturbing and heinous domestic violence incidents by Jon Entine (see the Natural News link above for more details and links to the court documents).
Posted on the Jon Entine page of Truthwiki.org, an exhaustive series of publicly-available PDF documents from the courts of Hamilton County, Ohio state that Jon Entine physically assaulted his wife. He "...became very belligerent and aggressive toward Plaintiff [his wife]. He pushed her, shoved her, gouged her eye, choked her and pushed her into the porch column. He slammed the door and refused to release [their daughter]. Plaintiff finally called the Indian Hill Rangers..."
Entine's wife, Ellen Turner, then sought a court order requiring Jon Entine to attend "anger management classes." She further described Entine as "irrational and unpredictable" and warned the courts that his bizarre behavior "appears to be escalating."
The following paragraph, also found in the court document PDFs shown on the Jon Entine Truthwiki page, revealed how Ellen Turner was "assaulted by [Jon Entine]. This occurred in the presence of [their daughter] who has been psychologically traumatized as a result. [Daughter] is afraid of [Jon Entine]... he has become increasingly and exceedingly hostile and belligerent. [The wife] fears that [Entine's] mental health has deteriorated..."After years of violence and abuse, Jon Entine and Ellen Turner were divorced on November 2006. But Jon's downhill descent didn't end with the divorce. Just like anyone following the path of Steve Sailer, the bad news keeps getting worse. The Natural News link is a five page article on Jon Entine that are linked together, so make sure you read all five pages. Here are more areas on the real Jon Entine that are exposed.
- Jon Entine begins dating via EHarmony.com while still living with wife - court documents
- Fired by ABC news, characterized as "out of control"
- Jon Entine stages manufacturing violation then calls the FDA, then cites his own contrived staging as evidence against the company - report
- A wikipedia vandal who defames real scientists questioning the safety of GMOs
- Jon Entine demands to see his wife's diaries and personal journals
- Jon Entine illegally enters wife's residence, wife demands "psychological evaluation"
- Entine threatens his daughter's therapist with legal action
- Entine threatens the credibility of George Mason University
- Entine attempts to sue others for merely questioning his qualifications
- Entine is an apologist for deadly chemicals like atrazine

Jon Entine, Taboo, and Black Athletes - Football and the NFL
So far the Boston Marathon and basketball were analyzed. Another widely popular sport which the book Taboo analyzes in depth is football. When Taboo was published in 2000, Blacks made up 13% of the American population and an unusually high 67% of the NFL players. These Black NFL players are primarily of West African descent genetically gifted with fast twitch muscles to give them exceptional speed, explosive power, jumping, and strength.
Look at the profile of NFL players since the 1950s. You will see a significant increase of Black players in the NFL every year. If you also plot out physical characteristics, like height, weight, speed, and strength every year since the 1950s, you will see a significantly increasing trend every year, with most of those physical increases attributed by the increasing number of Black players.
By the late 1990s, Black athletes made up 67% of the NFL. Jon Entine concluded in Taboo, published in 2000, that Black genetic dominance in the NFL and clear trends would cause Black representation in the NFL to further increase over the years, and other races would be phased out.
How did Jon Entine's predictions come about? He was a little closer on the mark with his NFL predictions than his NBA predictions, and his fallacies were reduced a little, but fallacies still abound and his predictions did not come true.
Since Black players made up 67% of the NFL in 1999, that figure has been consistent up to 2014. It may fluctuate 1 or 2 points either direction, but has been consistent overall. While the Black population in America has slightly increased to 14% and increased in absolute numbers, the NFL roster spots have been consistent. If Blacks had a genetic monopoly on the best football players in America, we would certainly see an increase of Black representation in the NFL after 1999.
Another interesting note is that NFL player physical characteristics, such as height, weight, speed, and strength, has maxed out in 1999. Some years have small fluctuations, but overall the 2014 NFL players physically and racially represent the NFL players of 1999.
Analyzing the NFL players by position, you'll see the most diversity in the NFL belonging to quarterbacks, offensive linemen, tight end, punters, and kickers. Non-Black players have played in every position in the NFL. Whites dominate the quarterback position, but almost every race and nationality, such as Hispanics, Asians, Pacific Islanders, Arabs, and Indians, have played in the NFL.
Not only the non-Black races can play in the NFL, but they can also play in the most Black dominated positions and perform just as well with the best Black football players. Here are some of the best non-Black players in the NFL who meet these criteria to prove Jon Entine wrong.
1) Player has minimal or no African heritage (i.e less than one quarter Black/African heritage).
2) Player played in the Black dominated positions of the NFL.
3) Player was a solid starter and performed very well in that position.
4) Player played and excelled in the NFL in 1999 or afterwards, when Black representation and physical traits of all NFL players maxed out.
NFL: Cornerback for the New York Giants, 1994-2003
Jon Entine's prediction of Black dominance in the cornerback seemed to be closer on the mark. The last non-Black cornerback we saw in the NFL was a White guy named Jason Sehorn. He was a starting cornerback for the New York Giants from 1994 to 2002, and played his final year in the NFL in 2003 as a safety. There haven't been any non-Black cornerbacks in the NFL after Jason Sehorn, and there doesn't seem to be any on the horizon as of 2015. Neverless, Jason Sehorn played as a starting cornerback in 1999 and beyond, at a time when Black percentage of NFL players and average size, speed, and strength of all NFL players reached its peak.
Conclusion: Taboo may have less mistakes in analyzing and predicting the NFL compared to the NBA, but it still has mistakes. Taboo has some parts right, but too many mistakes and fallacies to pass as credible scientific research.

Jon Entine, Taboo, and Black Athletes - Basketball and the NBA
Statistics show that while Blacks made up 13% of the American population in the late 1990s (the latest figures available in Taboo), Blacks made up a staggering 80% of the NBA. There was a clear trend of Black dominance in the NBA. If you take stats like the percentage of Black players in the NBA since the 1950s or earlier, then plot each percentage every year on your Excel spreadsheet, you would see a clear trend of increasing Black presence and dominance in the NBA. Take other stats, like minutes of playing time, points scored, rebounds, and you would see the same increasing trends.
Look at the Dream Team of the best NBA players in the 1992 and 1996 Summer Olympics. It was dominated by Black players of West African descent, and even more so in 1996. The 1996 Dream Team was down to just one white guy, John Stockton. Both Dream Teams dominated the best basketball players of the world by about 50 points per game in 1992 and 30 points in 1996.
This staggering trend led Jon Entine to conclude that, due to their genetic fast twitch muscle advantages, the percentage of Black players in the NBA would continue to increase and never decline. Other races and nationalities who are not West African would never be able to effectively compete against the Black NBA players, especially the elite NBA players like the Dream Team.
Then reality struck hard after 2000, when Taboo was published. Jon Entine's analysis and predictions were soon discredited over the years. Here are the major events which proved him wrong.
Black player percentage in NBA declines
From an all time high of 80% of NBA players in the 1990s, that percentage declined after 2000 and did not resume the peak of 80% since then. International players from all around the world brought more diversity to the NBA. The percentage of Black players in the NBA has been in the 75% to 78% range after 2000, and at 76% as of 2013.
International basketball players bring diversity to the NBA
The NBA of the 21st century saw much diversity of basketball players of many races and nationalities. Not only did they bring diversity to the NBA, but they have the genetics to effectively compete and be as great as the best African NBA players. Below are three famous NBA superstars that prove the point.
Here are the names of non-African countries which have produced basketball players who have played in the NBA after 2000, grouped by continent.
Europe: So many countries in Europe
Asia: China, Japan, South Korea
South America: Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Uruguay
Central America and Carribean: Mexico, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama,
2000 Summer Olympics
This is where Taboo first started falling apart. The Dream Team of the best NBA players of West African descent were playing against the international elite, but the international players, skills, teamwork, and coaching improved dramatically. The 2000 Dream Team could not replicate past success, often beating the better teams by less than 20 points rather than around 30 points in past years. The big stunner was when the Lithuania team, a small country in northern Europe, was ahead of the Dream Team in the semi-finals. The Dream Team barely pulled ahead and beat Lithuania by 2 points. Then they beat France in the finals by an unimpressive 10 points to barely win the gold medal.
2004 Summer Olympics
This is where Taboo's theory of Black dominate in international basketball was officially buried. After their disastrous losses, they were no longer named the Dream Team. During the regular games, the US team lost to Puerto Rico (73-92) and Lithuania (90-94) for 3 wins and 2 losses. In the championship rounds, the US team lost to Argentina (81-89) in the semi-finals and went home with the bronze medal.
2008 Summer Olympics
By now Team USA was nicknamed the Redeem Team. The best players of the NBA, primarily of West African descent, trained and practiced hard to redeem themselves from the 2004 Olympics. They won all the regular games and beat Spain in the finals (118-107) to take home the gold medal. Team USA played well, but is was not a domination like in the 1990s.
2012 Summer Olympics
Team USA won the gold medal again, but it was even a closer tournament than 2008. Black player dominance from Team USA did not happen, and it became clear that every race and nationality can compete effectively against Team USA. They beat Spain in the finals (107-100) in a closer game than 2008 to barely win the gold medal.
Another point Jon Entine needs to explain is why Nigeria, a heavily populated country (over 170 million) in West Africa, did so bad in the 2012 Olympics? Nigeria was one of the worst teams, losing 4 out of 5 games in the regular tournament.
Jon Entine needs to write a new book sequel, "Taboo II: Where Jon Entine Went Wrong, and Why He Doesn't Want To Talk About It". Using any of the pictures of the basketball stars above would be a good cover.
