    If Trump said 93 million a day, Pelosi would be on TV questioning President Bush’s mental health again.

    I am not sitting with anyone that doesn’t understand the cultural aspects of llama husbandry.

    I refuse to sit next to somebody who treats llamas like Wes treats women.

  5. NYCmike says:

    Only 55% for Murphy, can’t even match Christie’s high popularity number……Republicans are on the upswing!

  6. DW says:

    wow–didn’t notice this on my first read through the account, but the shooter wasn’t just a Bernie supporter, but was actually a campaign volunteer.

  7. janz says:

    So, will the political proclivities of the shooter, the candidates he supported, or his vile Facebook commentary be front page news/headlines in papers such as the NYTs? Or, will it be quietly glossed over as the MSM races to tie it in with the hateful GOP?

  8. Mr.Vito says:

    Bernie supporters are trying hard to fulfill the Bernie Dream of turning America into Venezuela

    The country is in a cold-civil-war. Much like the Cold War with the USSR, when there are episodes like today when it gets hot.

  11. DW says:

    CNN reports Steve Scalise in critical condition after surgery.

  12. Wes says:

    Best wishes to Steve Scalise and the other victims of this unhinged maniac.

    “I am not sitting with anyone that doesn’t understand the cultural aspects of llama husbandry.”
    The SCOTUS has ruled that I need not care if you sleep with llamas and want to be the husband of one.
    Why all the “conditions” being trotted out there by HHR people as to what does or does not have to happen in order for us to have an emergency meeting of the policy committee?

  14. Jonesy says:

    Prayers for Rep. Scalise and his family

  15. Wes says:

    A rare great quote from RRH:

    June 14, 2017 at 4:59 pm
    Either it matters or it doesn’t. And the people who told me for years that political rhetoric mattered even when there was no causal link between the right and a shooter do not get to tell me that it doesn’t matter at all now that a liberal nutjob tried to assassinate the Congressional Republican Party.

  16. Blobbie says:

    It is not fair that I cannot post as many negative things about trump as I want to just because a gun nut shot some people

    Maybe if Trump did not provoke reasonable people their would be no shootings

    Guns should be banned

  17. Cash Cow TM says:

    I think it matters.

    People need to tone the sh!+ down and quit getting all up in people’s faces on the street and on social media.

    We cows are not nearly as rude to one another in the barnyard as people are on the street.

  18. Blobbie says:

    The nytimes has a great article

    Shunning gun control helping terrorists

    Too bad Trump cannot read

  19. Wes says:

    Liberals and Democrats own this. They engage in far more salacious and caustic hate speech thsn the Right ever has. I give no quarter to the Right for appalling statements, and I will give none to the Left.

    For sheer political expediency, the American Left nearly continuously demagogues anyone of even moderately conservative views as a Nazi or a murderer or some other vile epithet.

    Then a lifelong left-wing activist takes this mealymoutheed hate speech to its natural extreme by trying to gun down a host of GOP members of Congress.

    It is beyond dreadful, and I’ll be damned if I will not ensure the Left is tied directly to this psychotic would-be murderer I hope is even now roasting in that Hell I don’t believe in.

  20. DW says:

    MN Rep. Paulsen:

    “I actually just returned from the hospital a few moments ago, and I think he had just completed his second surgery”

    “He was unconscious and in the ICU, and it’s possible he may have to go in for an additional surgery. So I think some of the injuries could be a little more extensive than initially reported.”

  21. Wes says:

    I’m going to leave this right here and only mention this guy is an RRH moderator defending the Trump-as-Caesar play:

    June 14, 2017 at 4:09 pm
    Come on! The park play is Shakespeare. Updating Shakespearean plays to be set in modern times is a thing. Other companies did the same thing with Obama like character cast as Caesar and no one cared.

  22. Jonesy says:

    Well said Wes, and the best way to show we will not stand for the Left’s violence is to defeat Sanders Buddy Ossoff in the GA-6.

  23. DW says:

    Loon posting on a NYTimes article about the shooting, suggesting it was self-defense:

    “I will never support gun violence for any reason. I am so sorry for all of the victims in this tragedy. But at the same time, I wonder if politicians might take a moment to consider that a citizen has exercised his right to use his legally sanctioned firearm to protect himself and his family from people who are intent on causing them great harm. I worry that when the first children begin dying from poisoned water or lack of healthcare, the option to take up arms may start looking like the only alternative for grieving parents.”

  24. Jonesy says:

    Does the FBI ever scan Facebook? Or was Comey phoning it in?

    Between Reality Winner and this clown…..

  25. Cash Cow TM says:

    Belleville, Illinois.

    population: 45,000

    17th largest city in Illinois.

    I say nutzo shooter was a Big City Values guy.

    I am not sure WV has any city 50,000 population–maybe Charleston….

  26. DW says:

    and a NY Times editor did not ban that comment, instead, flagged it as a NYT Pick Comment!!

  27. Wes says:

    So the author of that e-mail assumes Scalise is either dead or incapacitated and predicts further violence toward 216 other Republicans in Congress.

  28. Phil says:

    Hoping the congressman pulls through.

    Should be a very interesting election next Tuesday.

  29. Cash Cow TM says:

    Who is the closest HHR member we have to Belleville in SW Illinois?

    Is it Scooter Boy?

    Maybe we can send him to Belleville to investigate the shooter’s background…

  30. Wes says:

    Walt, I don’t really think the guy was a guy with values shaped by any type of city. He was a leftist Kool-Aid drinker brainwashed into believing Republicans are pure evil and taking things into his own hands.

  31. Jonesy says:

    25. Basically a suburb of St. Louis. Very liberal area, staunch Union. This is where the crazy Tobacco lawsuits started.

  32. Cash Cow TM says:

    The shooter left Illinois to travel to D.C. in MARCH and has apparently been living in the D.C. area in his car for the past several months…

    according to TV news I just saw out of D.C.

  33. lisab says:

    Dr. DaShanne Stokes @DaShanneStokes

    We can’t have a real conversation about violence and politics without discussing Trump inciting violence. #TrumpIncitesViolence #shooting

  34. Cash Cow TM says:

    Big City Values people are people that:

    –claim to be victims

    –feel they are justified in violating laws and other people’s property and personal rights to achieve their goals

    –are more apt to be people who ignore the rights of others, since they feel their “rights” are paramount

    –watch a lot of CNN, Oprah, The View, etc.

    –think Obama was a the reincarnation of Jesus

    –vote Democrat

  35. DW says:

    31 – just the other day was discussing the tragic actions taken by the natives of Saipan in WWII when our forces took over the island. The Japanese had brainwashed the people there into thinking our troops would torture and kill them. So dozens of men, women, mothers with babies jumped off the cliff to their deaths even though our men pleaded with them that we meant no harm.

    Lies have consequences.

  36. DW says:

    Correction: I just looked it up and it was over 1,000 jumped off the cliff at Saipan.

  37. Cash Cow TM says:


    If millions of foolish people can believe with all their heart in Man-Made Global Warming, then certainly a simple Cow (and Walt) can believe in the Big City Values vs. Small Town Values theory.

  38. Jonesy says:

    37. Very sad. amazing that by 1946 Japan became a Democracy and one of our closest allies.

  39. Jonesy says:

    Shooter was at occupy Wall Street

  40. lisab says:

    think Obama was a the reincarnation of Jesus

    i think you mean muhammed tsk

  41. Cash Cow TM says:

    Does this make you wonder how many more armed Big City Values whackos have left their home city and have been living in their cars in the D.C. area since shortly after Trump was inaugurated?

    Makes you wonder…

  42. lisab says:

    guns are illegal in dc walt

  43. DW says:

    44 – that’s why it happened across the river in Alexandria, VA.

  44. Cash Cow TM says:


  45. Wes says:

    He was a home inspector. That’s a high-paying job not generally known to attract psychos.

  46. Wes says:

    Guns may be illegal in DC, but one wouldn’t know it from the high level of violence there.

  47. Cash Cow TM says:


    there are a lot of things that are illegal in D.C., including possession of guns.

    Having laws on the books does not mean people there with Big City Values will abide by those laws.

    Big City Values people believe they have the right to ignore and not follow any law they feel does not jibe with their personal belief.

    You know, people like you.

  52. Cash Cow TM says:

    Kaine is evil.
    Spawn of Soros.
    Kaine is not able.

  53. Wes says:

    Alexandria is in the district once represented by corrupt longtime Congressman Jim Moran.

  54. Wes says:

    Virginians have elected Kaine statewide by the following margins:

    2001 LG-50/48

    2005 Governor-52/46

    2012 Senator-53/47

    Time to forcibly retire this sleazeball.

  55. Wes says:

    By that, I mean time to vote him out of office before I hear an accusation that I want Kaine to be a victim of violence from some loon.

  56. Wes says:

    What mortifies me is that the video of the shooting on YouTube has over 11 rtimes as many likes as dislikes.

  57. Phil says:


    Washington Post now saying Mueller has expanded his investigation to include the President for obstruction of justice.

    The natural course of events that occur with the appointment of a special prosecutor has begun.

    Again, see Mueller’s appointments. This was expected.

  58. BayernFan says:

    WAPO? Who knows if it’s true.

  59. Tom says:

    Let’s not take any responsibility for the George Soros finance riots, vandalism, and physical violence. Let’s not take any responsibility for the profanity laced tirades of Maxine Waters and Tom Perez. Let’s not take in responsibility for the erroneous reporting of the New York Times, CNN, and MSNBC. Let’s not take any responsibility for the crude Kathy Griffin skit holding a bloody severed head of the President. No, let’s exploit this tragedy to promote a left-wing gun control agenda. A gun didn’t shoot all those people today. A radical left-wing nut case, goaded on by the entire liberal establishment, did. Wow, just wow.

  60. NYCmike says:

    “WAPO? Who knows if it’s true.”

    -Robbie to confirm story in 3….2…..1…..

  61. Robbie says:


    Here’s the problem. The day before Robert Mueller was appointed special council he interviewed with Trump about becoming FBI Director again. I understand that Trump and his allies are going to do what they can rough up Mueller, but it seems a much heavier lift given the meeting the two had. In other words, if Mueller is the lout Trump and his allies believe, then why did Trump interview the lout one day earlier to be FBI Director?

  62. NYCmike says:

    Heh….timing is everything 🙂

    “WAPO? Who knows if it’s true.”
    -Robbie to confirm story in 3….2…..1…..

    – How would I be in a position to confirm the story? I don’t work for them.

    But just as you claim I confirm bad stories for Trump, you quickly deny any bad story for Trump.

  64. Robbie says:

    NYCmike says:
    June 14, 2017 at 7:17 pm
    Heh….timing is everything

    – Quick. Find a commentary piece by Tammy Bruce to confirm your view.

  65. Tina says:

    I do not believe the wp. 9 stories werr wrong a couple of weeks ago. Fake news.

  66. Tina says:

    Mueller may be brilliant, but there is a clear conflict of interest or an appearance of one.

  67. Tina says:

    Look at the words wp uses. Possibly.

    And this paragraph is just fake

    The move by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to investigate Trump’s conduct marks a major turning point in the nearly year-old FBI investigation, which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

  68. Tina says:

    This was likely leaked by comedy btw.

  69. Tina says:

    A leak trying to minimize the assasination attemp on r leadership.

  70. Tina says:

    I’ll say it: If the special counsel’s office is leaking prejudicial information about an investigation, it should be shut down immediately.

    David martkoso

  71. Tina says:

    Yup, its an fbi leak, but if it came from sp office, it will be shut down.

  72. Tina says:

    I dont beleive its an fbi leak. I believe wo has no sources.

  73. Robbie says:

    I think everyone should realize something important about the powers of Robert Mueller. He may well come to the conclusion Trump obstructed justice. I doubt he will, but it’s possible. That said, the Justice Department has a long held view president’s can’t be indicted.

    So if presidents can’t be indicted, then Mueller’s powers are ultimately neutered. If he does find obstruction of justice, all he can do is pass the information along to the House for their consideration. And at this point, I see no reason to believe the Republicans in the House are going to act on any potential finding and begin impeachment proceedings.

    None of this is good news for Trump, but the odds Republicans are going to push him out remain barely above zero, if even that.

  74. Phil says:


    Of course there is a clear conflict of interest with Mueller. I agree completely.

    All this could have been avoided if Trump had dismissed Comey his first week in office. Even Dems would not have had a problem with that. They were pissed at Comey over the election.

    Instead, Trump let that sanctimonious, two faced snake hang around for four months.

    Lousy call by Trump. Have no idea what in the hell he was thinking. Now Comey through his butt buddy Mueller is in position to get his revenge. At the least it will create problems.

    BTW, this Russian stuff is and always has been nonsense. Trump doesn’t deserve any of this outside of his strategic boo boos of keeping Gomey and this love affair he had with Flynn.

  75. Tina says:


    Focus is 5 gunned down by a supporter of muh russian and a lunatic.

  76. Tina says:

    Scalise has taken a turn to the worse, per cnn and sean hannity.

  77. Phil says:


    Robbie – agree about the Republican House. However, don’t forget there is an election in 18 months. There could be a Democratic House. Different story then.

  78. Ron N says:

    So let me get this straight President Trump has been told he was not under investigation. 1 year of investigation by FBI no evidence of collusion. And the president just wants someone to say it. This is what is obstruction BS I am not buying it. Dems have been playing this story line with MSM.

  79. Tina says:

    Leak came from senate un intelligence committee

    They met with mueller today.

  80. Walt says:

    Big City Values people can get away with a lot in big cities.

    If the shooter dude came to my hometown (population 320) and tried to live in his car anonymously from March to mid June, everyone in town would know he was there in about an hour.

    In a big city, it is easy to don all black clthing and indiscreetly join a mob street demonstration to block traffic, loot, burn and destroy.

    In my home town, everyone knows everyone and people would say “Look at that Henderson boy over there blocking traffic, carrying a “F… the Police” sign? and Mrs. Henderson would be alerted and rush down to the demonstration and slap her son silly and drag his ass home.

  81. Tina says:

    Tinareports indicates leak came from senator warners office.


  82. Robbie says:


    The only scenario I can imagine where Republicans in the House act on a potential find by Mueller is if Trump’s approval rating has crashed into the 20’s or they feel it might be the only way to avoid a catastrophic wipe out in 2018. The latter is unlikely unless the former has occurred.

  83. Tina says:

    Bottom line: Trump should not dismiss Mueller, but the Justice Department must revise the special counsel’s jurisdiction. Maybe this time, it could be conformed to, you know, the law . . . specifically, the law that limits special counsels to criminal investigations, not counterintelligence probes.

  84. Tina says:

    It is remarkable that Rosenstein now reads the reg on removing a special counsel with such exactitude when he has read the reg on appointing a special counsel with such inattention. Under the latter regulation (28 CFR Sec. 600.1), a special counsel may only be appointed when the AG or DAG “determines that criminal investigation of a person or matter is warranted.” For the umpty-umpth time, the investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential campaign is not a criminal investigation. It is a counterintelligence investigation.

  85. Phil says:

    Well then, if that is what Mueller told the intel committee directly then it is true.

    Again, not surprising. Mueller and Comey are tight. Yes, a clear conflict of interest. Second, look who Mueller has hired.

    We all know where this is going.

  86. Tina says:

    I think rostenstein will cut muellers duties down. It is clear the sp was establised on fraud. There was no basisi for it.

  87. Tina says:

    Mueller met with nc senator burr and va senator ahole.

    I doubt burr will leak, warner would.

  88. Tina says:

    Rosthenstein needs to li it muellers scope. I am sure he is uoset for being fooled by comedy.

  89. Robbie says:

    Tina says:
    June 14, 2017 at 8:15 pm
    I think rostenstein will cut muellers duties down. It is clear the sp was establised on fraud. There was no basisi for it.

    – This will never happen. It will look like he’s trying to protect Trump. The time to set the parameters was at the start. It’s too late, politically, now.

  90. Tina says:

    Needs to investigates the leaks.

  91. Phil says:

    Robbie, reluctantly have to agree. Politically, it is too late. Needed to be done up front.

  92. Robbie says:

    The Washington Post story says it has FIVE sources. Unless Warner gave five different names, it’s more than just him, if he was even a source.

    It’s more likely this leak came from Mueller’s office. Why? Pushback for the story Trump was considering firing Mueller.

    Every time Trump pops off, a damaging leak occurs. When he threatened Comey with “tapes”, Comey leaked his memos. When Trump considered firing Mueller, we get this story.

    Maybe the moral is Trump should control his outbursts a little better.

  93. Tina says:

    5 is a cover for 2, they also claim. It was fbi leak and they are wrong. Its obvious who was bried today and who leaked.


  94. Tina says:

    Mueller briefed inly 2 senators.

    Wp is covering for warner.

    Rememmber, wp is usually fed garbage by drat comedy or drats in the senate.

    This is snuffed out.

    Mueller would not be stupid to leak, when its this obvious to leak. He coukd be axed for doing so quickly. Think about it.

  95. Diamond Jim says:

    Andrew C. McCarthy @AndrewCMcCarthy

    Replying to @AndrewCMcCarthy
    If obstruction claim based on Trump-Comey Flynn conv (this guy’s been thru enuf), what does that have to do with “collusion with Russia.” 2/




    Andrew C. McCarthy @AndrewCMcCarthy

  97. Tina says:

    Andrew C. McCarthy @AndrewCMcCarthy

    Innuendo will paralyze Trump’s ability to govern. If he is now under investigation, #Rosenstein & #Mueller should say so publicly. 1/

  98. Robbie says:

    Genuinely terrible news. Just awful.

    Billy House?
    3m3 minutes ago

    Scalise condition critical — internal organ damage, broken bones, severe bleeding. Mulitple surgeries needed, his office reports.

  99. Phil says:

    Horrible news!

  100. BayernFan says:

    IIRC, Archibald Cox was fired for leaking,

  101. Chicon says:

    105 – and things didn’t go well for the guy who fired him. Trump would be making an enormous mistake if he fires Mueller. If he does so, he better have pictures of Mueller molesting collies.

  102. Tina says:

    Trump went tomthe hospital.

  103. Tina says:

    Al of this because of a russuain loon and derangef leftist.

  104. BayernFan says:

    Times are different. The political facts are different. The media is different.

  105. Tina says:

    The rnc is blaming mueller for the leaks. Mueller has made too many mistakes. Meeting with comedy to go over his testimony to the senate unintelligence committeee and now this, if true.

  106. Tina says:

    Now wp editors are saying that their story was rushed and inaccurate. Wtf, who knew?

  107. Chicon says:

    Tina, source for WaPo retraction?

  108. Chicon says:

    Great point earlier today by Wes about this being a hate crime.

  109. Tina says:

    True pundit, but they are not retracting, nor did i say they where.

    The story dies seem thinly sourced after a convenient meetung by two senators.

  110. Chicon says:

    You said wp editors their story is inaccurate.

  111. Tina says:

    Not sure about them, but it coukd fit them rushing a story out there, given the sad headline today re the shooting.

  112. Tina says:

    Rushed, hushed and skepitcal of their story?

  113. Chicon says:

    So, Tina, source for statement that wp editors say their story was rushed and inaccurate?

  114. Tina says:

    I say its fake news, leaked by warner and staff. There 5 people right there.

  115. Tina says:

    See 116 are they legit?

  116. Chicon says:

    Interesting, Tina. Thx.

  117. Chicon says:

    Who knows what’s true.

  118. BayernFan says:

    WAPO?!?! C’mon!! lol

  119. Tina says:

    I never heard of that site, chicon, but it coukd be reasonable that theynrushed a story out there to deflect frommtodays tragic shooting.

  120. Tina says:

    Until wp gets a story right on muh russia, i discount them. They were wrong 8 times already.

  121. Tina says:

    Warner leaks this tomdeflect from the drats shooting rs.

  122. BayernFan says:

    WAPO has willingly become part of the so-called resistance. It’s no longer a legitimate news outlet. That’s not hyperbole.

  123. Tina says:

    WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman released the following statement in response to this evening’s story in the Washington Post:

    “This unfounded accusation against the president changes nothing,” said Chairwoman McDaniel. “There’s still no evidence of obstruction, and current and former leaders in the intelligence community have repeatedly said there’s been no effort to impede the investigation in any way. The continued illegal leaks are the only crime here.”

    Rncs response,

  124. Tina says:

    Wp is getting close to being tabloid thrash

  125. Robbie says:

    I’ve never heard of TruePundit before, but one thing about their story should be noted. Each source they used was anonymous. If many are going to discredit the NYT or WaPo for their use of anonymous sources, then shouldn’t this story from TruePundit be viewed skeptically?

  126. Chicon says:

    Agree, Bayern.

  127. Chicon says:

    Robbie – yep, they both should.

  128. BayernFan says:

    Did you see Chris Cilliza getting served on twitter? 1000 replies….

  129. Robbie says:

    So we’re going to claim the WaPo story is tabloid trash because a website not heard of before this evening posted a story with its own anonymous sources saying the WaPo editors were skeptical of the their own story.

    Got it.

  130. Tina says:

    It makes sense.

    Warner and his staff leak to the wp, whomrush a story out there that is fake news, to deflect from the shooting.

    Theynare sick.

  131. BayernFan says:

    Most of the nation associate CNN, WAPO the NYT and the rest of them as #fakenews. People aren’t stupid….they see whats going on.

  132. Tina says:

    The White House now refers all questions about the Russia investigation to Trump’s personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz. “The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal,” said Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Kasowitz.”

    Charge the keakers and the leaks will go away.

    Cuing sessions

  133. Tina says:

    Wp was wrong on muh russia time and time again. 8 stories wrong. All based on secret sources.

  134. Tina says:

    Cn and n tabloid tv news

    Wp tabloid news print

  135. Waingro says:

    Awful news about Scalise’s condition. Praying for he and his family.

  136. Chicon says:

    Robbie, incorrect. We’re going to seriously doubt a report from a paper that’s recently proven to often wrong. We’re going to wait for further information before relying on this report.

  137. DW says:

    Scalise is NOT out of the woods. The bullet ricocheted and damaged organs and caused extensive internal bleeding. More surgeries needed.

  138. Tina says:

    Lets see if maggie gets any leaks.

  139. Tina says:

    Wp,coukd have waited to report. They chose not to in order to deflect from the horrible news story.

    Wp reporting on muh russian was inaccurate. Time and rime again.

    Theynare tabloid thrash. I will wait to see if tp is right. I frankly do not care because the story is wromg again.

  140. Tina says:

    And they used the word possible. Key word that they have no story. There is nothing new in this story.

  141. NYCmike says:

    “Each source they used was anonymous. If many are going to discredit the NYT or WaPo for their use of anonymous sources, then shouldn’t this story from TruePundit be viewed skeptically?”


    I Think Robbie finally figured it out!

    YES, don’t post the link UNTIL it has been verified, Robbie!

    Glad to have you on board!

    He did meet with scalise, acosta had to correct an hour kater.

  148. janz says:

    It’s difficult knowing what is true and what is not, when it comes to the MSM. They’re becoming more like gossip rags than informational, factual sources.

  149. BayernFan says:

    I think they’ve always been like that….and the internet crowd sourcing has exposed them.

  150. Tina says:

    Us today opinion need for mueller to recuse himself. He is bound to the same recusal law as sessions.

  151. Wes says:

    This is NYCMike’s kind of candidate:

    Corey Stewart will not support Ed Gillespie for Governor but plans to challenge Tim Kaine next year.

    Congresswoman Comstock, please stop this idiot.

    Hasn’t the VAGOP beclowned itself enough already?

  152. Jonesy says:

    What! Stewart is a POS. Wes, we might not be able to afford making Comstock seat open.

  153. Jonesy says:

    Tina, it is just every day now. A boycott of amazon is in order, very close to ending my account there.

    Bezos is another POS

  154. Jonesy says:

    is Trafalgar a good pollster?

    They have Ossoff up 47-43.

  155. Tina says:

    Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

    They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice

  156. Tina says:

    I got this elsewhere, nbut it makes no sense.

    The Washington Post reporter stated on the radio today that the obstruction investigation started shortly after Comey was fired and was begun by the FBI. He also stated that the investigation is now being controlled by Mueller.

    I do not buy it.

  157. Jonesy says:

    When Comey said he leaked to force a Special counsel, Mueller should have stepped down. Friends for 15 years?

  158. Bitterlaw says:

    My younger softball team, The Traffic Cones (we have orange jerseys), lost to the Firetrucks (red jerseys) last night in the Semi-Finals. For some reason, 10-12 year old girls seemed more interested in the end of school and their vacation than getting their 49 year old coach to the Championship game.

  159. Jonesy says:

    Tina, as long as the NYT and WaPo continue to be the enemy of the GOP, there is no hope of ever uniting this country.

    They would do this to any future GOP president.

    Trump and his people need to go outside the box, and just bypass the MSM

  160. Jonesy says:

    Wes, is Handel having a woman problem in that district?

  161. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Here is my early morning update on the early voting in the GA CD-6 race:

    Other- 48,500(40.6%)
    GOP- 43,500(36.4)
    Dem.- 27,500(23.0%)

  162. Jonesy says:

    Sheeple, what is your take with 5 days to go?

    I would assume Trafalgar poll was done before yesterday’s shooting

  163. Tina says:

    Mueller also got the iraq had wmds wrong.

  164. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    #159- Jonesey
    I believe that Trafalgar was the one pollster which showed The Donald doing well in the Swing States in 2016.
    That said, their poll of the GA CD-6 race contains no data points other than the early voting and the expected election day vote.
    My surmise would be that Handel is doing great with men and Ossoff is doing well with females.

  165. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    #167- Jonesey
    Based on early voting patters and the expected GOP surge on election day, I would say Handel by 4+.

  166. Jonesy says:

    Thanks Sheeple!

  167. Phil says:

    Again, Ossoff got 67 percent of the early vote last round. I am guessing his number will be down some as the total early votes are up from the first round early vote. This means more Republicans MAY be voting early due to the high profile of the race. The down side is it means the Republican Election Day vote won’t be as overwhelming as last time due to a higher canniblization on the R side this round.

    Who knows where we are. We are all just guessing as of now. I think the Republicans have a good shot at holding the seat whereas a couple of weeks ago I would have said a much lesser chance.

  168. Phil says:

    I was relieved to see the student released by North Korea. That is I was until I read this morning that his father said his son had been brutalized and terrorized. The same story said the young man was and has been in a coma.

    In other words, thanks for nothing, dear leader.

  169. Bitterlaw says:

    Phil – If the stakes were not so high, a few cruise missiles would be a nice payback for the American student. Unfortunately, the US has to hold its fire. The student was a moron (a/k/a college student) but he is not worth a war.

  170. Todd McCain says:

    Those EV numbers appear to be good news for Handel.

  171. Phil says:

    Bitter, agree. We are very limited on any response. No question about that.

  172. NYCmike says:

    Try to keep up. I understand this-almost-married-status is playing with your mind (whichever head it is located in).

    For all of the big words you use in your comments, you really don’t comprehend a simple concept of which I have consistently espoused:

    The primary is over, all candidates from the Republican Party should support the person who won the primary (with very few exceptions).

  173. NYCmike says:

    That would apply to Stewart in this case.

  174. Mr.Vito says:

    Stewart said he would vote the republican ticket.

  175. Mr.Vito says:

    He said he would not actively support the ticket, which is good based on what Wes and Robbie said about him.

  176. Mr.Vito says:

    Putin has offered political asylum to Comey, comparing him to Snowden.


  177. Phil says:

    Watching the news this morning. I no longer believe this country should stay together as one. There are effectively two nations now. Obviously you cannot heard everyone into two separate geographic nations. That would not be practical, of course. Ideally, however, it would be best. The left does not want to live under conservative rule with conservative values anymore than I want to live in a leftist nation.

    There is no reconciling the different values and those values translate into vastly different policy. I do not want any part of a socialist, open border, politically correct, secularist, confiscate the wealth society – and I am not even bringing up the social issues.

    In short, I do not want to live in a nation and under a government that looks like a national California. That is where we are headed however and demographics dictate that is where we are headed. The only question is at what rate we get there.

    I call BS on that North-South reasoning.

    It has more to do with those who want MORE GOVERNMENT vs those who, correctly, see MORE GOVERNMENT AS THE PROBLEM.

  182. Phil says:

    Yeah, I think it is more an ideology difference.

  183. NYCmike says:

    We are at a tipping point, I believe.

    My company has had temp workers come in who were pretty good, and we looked to see if they wanted to work on a daily basis. Their response was a number that was ludicrous for the work they would be doing, unless the OT hours were factored in, but they made it clear that they were willing to do 8 hours only a day. We bid them adieu.

    They were unable to look around at the workers we have had for 5, 10, 15, 20, one guy at 40, years and to see what those people were able to accomplish. Homes bought, 401K $$$ being put aside, plans for 2nd/retirement homes started.

    Short-sighted and some laziness saw government largess as a better ticket to happiness.

    I hope you nail this, Sheeple! This would be a huge relative victory for the GOP, if true. The left/MSM would be devastated and would stymie the ensuing spinning of enthusiasm for 2018 midterms.

  212. Waingro says:

    #215, well some type of “documents” exist, Tina. But the extent of what has been portrayed as being in those documents by #FakeNews etc. remains to be seen.

    Comey barely gave any details as to his beloved alleged memos when he testified last week and basically just said the FBI has his copies.

    How hilarious would it be if CNN actually won this FOIA suit, received the documents, which turns out to be virtually nothing of substance. They will immediately pretend as if they never even filed suit. We shall see…

  216. Wes says:

    I still think Ossoff is favored in GA-6; however, I feel Handel now has a more realistic chance of winning than before.

    I don’t buy the early vote cannibalizaton theory generally. People tend to have to be motivated to go early. That usually means, as it did for Obama in 2008, enough of the vote will be energized to sustain a lead in early voting on Election Day.

    Besides, I’d rather bank votes early than run the risk of having unforessen circumstances prevent my supporters from reaching the polls on Election Day.

    So the Confederate flag waving Corey Stewart has announced he is likely to challenge Tim Kaine next year. Sorry to say this, but I think Tuesday’s result suggests Kaine is very safe in 2018.

    Why would any credible Republican want to get into a race where the base of the party is fixated on unelectable candidates who want to save Confederate war memorials.

    Comstock should focus on her House race. Maybe Fiorina is willing to take on a lost cause in hopes of parlaying it into something in 2020 if Trump implodes, but I see no upside as of TODAY.

  220. Robbie says:

    According to a New Orleans newspaper, Steve Scalise’s injuries are considered severe, but not life threatening. As good as we can hope for right now.

  221. Wes says:

    Kaine said members of “the Resistance” must take to the streets to fight Trump. He was part of the rhetoric that led Hodgkinson to attack, Robbie.

    That’s a rather clear opening.

  222. hugh says:

    Sabato, seems to be ignoring early voting compared to previous election and primary. it does not indicate a blow out like 2016, but it looks bad for the challenger. I also like the demographics in terms of who is early voting.

  223. Robbie says:

    Wes says:
    June 15, 2017 at 3:43 pm
    Kaine said members of “the Resistance” must take to the streets to fight Trump. He was part of the rhetoric that led Hodgkinson to attack, Robbie.
    That’s a rather clear opening.

    – I’m going to have to disagree with you on this one. In 2009 and 2010, more than a few Republicans made impertinent comments that sounded similar to what Kaine said. Most won. Given the image Kaine has cultivated, I think it will be a big hill to climb for people to conclude he was inciting actual violence.

    – This comment sounds fine and dandy until you realize it’s completely divorced from reality. The moderate Republicans are not going to buy into Paul’s libertarian viewpoints. And more importantly, the reconciliation process limits what can be done.

  230. NYCmike says:

    Rand Paul, I am pretty sure, has a better healthcare initiative ready to go, if the other Republicans would follow.

    BUT, there would probably NOT be enough chance for graft in that bill, so most of the rest of the Senators look elsewhere.

  231. NYCmike says:

    “And more importantly, the reconciliation process limits what can be done.”


  232. NYCmike says:

    “– This comment sounds fine and dandy until you realize it’s completely divorced from reality.”

    “The “Art of the Smokescreen” tweet.”?
    -Or maybe, just maybe, The Art of Knowing He Didn’t Do Anything, and Alerting The Authorities To The Real Criminals…….

    – Here’s a wild idea. If he’s got nothing to hide, then let the process play out and vindicate him. Instead, Trump just keeps shooting his mouth off and getting himself into more and more trouble.

    Right after Trump threatened Comey with the “tapes” tweet, Comey leaked his memos. Right after Trump leaked he might be ready to fire Mueller, we get a story Trump’s being investigated for obstruction. Coincidence? No.

    Also, no one other than Hannity followers care about Hillary anymore. She lost. The election was over SEVEN months ago. Trump’s beef should be with his own itchy twitter fingers.

  234. Robbie says:

    First, Obamacare CANNOT be repealed by reconciliation. Obamacare passed the Senate on December 24, 2009, because Reid had 60 Democrat Senators who could defeat any filibuster. The House then voted on the exact same bill three months later.

    Second, the things Paul wants to do CANNOT be done through reconciliation. So unless you think Democrats are suddenly going to agree Obamacare needs to be repealed, there is ZERO chance they’ll allow 60 votes to end a filibuster.

    Paul’s libertarianism may appeal to you, but he is on his own island in the Senate. There aren’t 50 votes for what he wants to do and he knows that. he’s just flapping his gums to gain attention from the base.

  235. NYCmike says:

    “Also, no one other than Hannity followers care about Hillary anymore.”

    -Yes, NOBODY cares about the Rule of Law anymore.

    “What difference does it make!?!?”

    FIGHT THESE B*ST*RDS WITH EVERY LEGAL, NON-LETHAL WEAPON AVAILABLE, because they will step on any Republican President, be it Trump, Dubya, or anyone else.

    NYCMike seems to think what happens in Congress is totally divorced from what’s happening with the president. It doesn’t work that way. Trump and his issues have sucked up all of the oxygen. Without him focused on the details of legislation, he can’t come in and solve the major disputes on the fine points of the bills.

  241. Phil says:


    Well, he does bring up a pretty good example of what real obstruction looks like. It poses a good question if you ask me.

  242. NYCmike says:

    ” Without him focused on the details of legislation, he can’t come in and solve the major disputes on the fine points of the bills.”

    -So, in other words, the last 8 years of having a Democratic President have made Republicans in Congress a bunch of adolescents that can’t do the job they were elected to do, namely legislate.

    How about the bill that Obama VETOED? They need President “Papa” Trump to write that one for them as well?

  243. NYCmike says:

    ” It poses a good question if you ask me.”

    -Heh…..God forbid the masses get their information from any other source than the NY Times, WAPO, or CNN like Robbie wants them to.

  244. NYCmike says:

    These Republicans either believe in limited government or they don’t…..when the feet hit the pavement, as we are seeing now, seems like they would rather tell us how, than allow us to make our own decisions.

    -Of course “the right” would obstruct, since Bernie/Hillary/Democrat would push policies trying to expand government.

    “The Left”, which loves government, is obstructing Trump policies, such as his “botched” and his “not-botched” immigration EO’s, that would actually do what it likes, namely expand government power.

    BUT, because it is Trump doing this, they obstruct.

    “The Right” uses REASON.
    “The Left” uses Emotion.

    There is a difference.

    I suppose Trump could be a good little boy and just lay down while Comey’s big bud pisses all over him and make no mistake, that’s what this is. I’ve seen Mueller’s staffing, the leaks from his office as of last night, and the flimsy case he’s “investigating”. Seen enough already. Playing the silent president “letting justice play out” isn’t going to help Trump in the least because this isn’t anything like justice here. I and everyone else can see the fix is in and where this is heading. Nothing but a coup pure and simple. Trump SHOULD speak out. You think any of the flaws of this thing are going to be acknowledged by CNN, the Washington Post, and CNN? Yet Trump is supposed to just sit there and take it?

    But yeah, Mr President, just shut up and let the Comey – Mueller tag team do their thing. Leak after leak after leak….Trust them. They are shining examples of ethics and all that is good in Washington. If that were the case I sure haven’t seen it.

  260. BayernFan says:

    What was the reason for Sessions to recuse himself from Russia “investigation”, which Comey finally admitted didn’t even exist?

    These morons are afraid of their own shadows.

  263. BayernFan says:

    Robbie….Trump is gonna fight back. That’s always been a large part of his appeal with me. The Left and the media and the leaky establishment were always gonna go after him no matter what. They started the night of the election after his gracious victory speech. They have peddled the Russia false story as soon as the NYT put him at 60% chance of winning at about 9:30pm. They basically produced the pussyhat thing the day after his inauguration and didn’t even let him have Inauguration Day itself.

    just start sending hillary’s cronies to prison

    suddenly the obstruction investigation would end

    Demented fool.

  269. Phil says:

    No, you want him to shut up and let the narrative be set by Mueller through his and Comey’s leaks to their friends at the NYT and Washington Post. Trump is supposed to sit back and be rail roaded..and learn to like it! I suspect he’s seen enough already.

  270. Trump says:

    Trump won in large part because he doesn’t take cra* from anyone.

    Rather, he piles cra* on losers like Jeb and Hillary.

  271. Trump says:

    If Trump didn’t tweet, Comey would still be in blackmail mode with his fake “Russia investigation”.

  272. Phil says:

    Comey very selective in his leaks but made sure the fact that Trump wasn’t under investigation was not one of them.

    As Rubio asked in committee hearings – why was that?

  273. Phil says:

    You want Trump to shut up and just take it? W did it that way his entire second term and they squashed him like a bug. Screw that.

    Officers believe the shots were fired from a newer white 4-door Chevrolet Malibu with a Louisiana plate near Emerson Avenue around 4 p.m.

    The victim and a witness informed police that the Malibu pulled up next to the pickup truck, a passenger held a handgun out of the window and then a male fired several shots.

    Police say no one was in injured in the incident.

    The driver of the Malibu was described as a black male around the age of 23. The passenger was described as a light skinned black male with a sleeve tattoo on his right arm.

But, he might have been using it to shower and so forth as well. The Mayor says at one point he said he was looking for work, and that overall he came across like an average Joe.

    Congressman Scalise – the bullet entered his hip area and passed through his lower body. Hence, internal damage and the need for multiple surgeries.

    From father of Otto Warmbier

    “FRED WARMBIER: When Otto was first taken, we were advised by the past administration to take a low profile while they worked to obtain his release. We did so without result. Earlier this year, Cindy and I decided the time for strategic patience was over.

    We made a few media appearances and traveled to Washington to meet with [Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Korea and Japan] Ambassador Joe Yun at the State Department.

    It is my understanding that Ambassador Yun and his team, at the direction of the president aggressively pursued resolution of the situation.

    They have our thanks for bringing him home.”

  322. lisab says:

    Hodgkinson … was surely deranged, and his derangement had found its fuel in politics. Mr. Hodgkinson was a Bernie Sanders supporter and campaign volunteer virulently opposed to President Trump. He posted many anti-Trump messages on social media, including one in March that said “Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”

    Was this attack evidence of how vicious American politics has become? Probably. In 2011, when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl, the link to political incitement was clear. Before the shooting, Sarah Palin’s political action committee circulated a map of targeted electoral districts that put Ms. Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs.

    ITHACA, N.Y. — An Ithaca man accused of killing a UPS driver from Candor said in court Monday afternoon that not only did he believe he shot and killed Donald Trump, but that no evidence could be presented to him to suggest otherwise.

    Justin R. Barkley, 38, said during his arraignment and subsequent attempt to plead guilty, “I shot and killed Donald Trump purposely, intentionally and very proudly.”

    He told the court that he knew where president elect Donald Trump would be on Dec. 8 and waited in the Ithaca Walmart parking lot kill him.

    “I went there to purposely shoot and kill him and put him down,” Barkley said.

    He told the court that he understood the difference between mistaking a person for being Trump and asserting that he actually killed Trump. When asked if any evidence could be presented to him to suggest he killed a different person, he said, “I would hope not.”

    Contra Rasmussen, Yahoo has Trump’s approval tonight at 35% and 25% of Republicans now disapprove of Trump.

    Just like a Rasmussen poll doesn’t prove anything, neither does one poll from Yahoo.

    The RCP average continues to show Trump below 40% and he’s been there, with the exception of two or three days, for more than a month.

    But sure, more tweeting about Hillary’s emails of make believe “tapes” about Comey.

  340. Robbie says:

    If Trump really wants to get out of this rut, he should start tweeting again about how Ted Cruz’s dad played a role in the JFK assassination. Or if that’s not something he wants to do, maybe he can go after Liddle Marco and Low Energy Jeb on Twitter. My suggestion would be for him to start tweeting “lock her up” or “Trump that beotch”. Since Twitter is so amazing for him, all of these would easily get Trump going again.

    Panaji, Jun 15: Sadhvi Saraswati, president of a Hindu organisation while speaking at an event said that the Government should hang beef-eaters in public and also talked of how Hinduism is under the threat of secular people. In these times, when the nation is engulfed in debates and violence over the issue of eating beef and slaughter of cattle, the sadhvi attending a meet of various Hindu outfits said those who consider eating beef as a status symbol should be hanged.
    The remarks made by Sadhvi Saraswati here last evening triggered a sharp reaction from the Congress, which said her speech would spark communal hatred and asked the BJP-led government in Goa to lodge an FIR against her.
    “I appeal to the Government of India that those people who consider eating meat of their own mother as a status symbol should be hanged,” Sadhvi Saraswati from Madhya Pradesh said.
    “They (those who eat beef) should be brought before the public and hanged, then only people will know that it is our duty to protect ‘gau mata’,” she said while commenting on beef consumption during the inauguration of All India Hindu Convention at Ramnathi village here.

  374. Phil says:

    Of course he is under investigation, Robbie. Expansion is what always happens when a special council is hired. St Mueller has hired an army of Hillary and Obama partisan lawyers and prosecutors. Now jumped into financial records and no telling where it expands next.

    I for one never doubted the validity of what was in the leaks. Of course, the leaks are illegal but that ties right into the circus doesn’t it? I can’t wait to see where they expand to next. One thing we know for sure. Whatever is happening will be promptly leaked from St Mueller’s people to their buddies at the Washington Post, NYT, and CNN. Again, totally illegal and obviously unprofessional, but we can’t be concerned with that now, can we?

    How many times has Jason repeated Jeb’s “act of love comment” here as proof Jeb was weak on immigration? Same for Phil. Phil suggested last week Jeb would’ve sold out on the Supreme Court and then relented saying his beef with Jeb over immigration clouded his view on Jeb.

    So of course it’s interesting to compare Trump’s immigration view with Jeb since Trump made his immigration dispute with Jeb the cornerstone of his primary campaign. And that Trump has ended up to the left of Jeb on immigrations shows his campaign was as empty as many thought.

    189 – you agree with Trump’s stance on the dreamers, right?

    – Immigration is about fifth or sixth on the list of priorities I have, but I would prefer we go back to the position we had on them before Obama changed it with an executive order.

    Next open GOP POTUS primary should include a skills test on things like taking legal advice and not Tweeting whatever you last saw on TV.

    I always had difficulty with the Dreamer issue. If a child was brought here by their parents, my issue was only with the parents. I would let the children stay and deport the parents the day their youngest child turns 18.

    Then there is the W approach. Sit back and let the MSM savage you for your entire last term and never say a word. Send out a stumbling press secretary like Scot McClellen stumble around and say nothing. Retire with a 30 percent approval rating.

  387. I support Donald Trump says:

    According to Redstate, Handel will lose badly. What’s changed since yesterday?

    – GWB’s approach was no better than the current “flail erratically on Twitter” approach we’re seeing. Yesterday, it was Hillary’s fault. Today, it’s Rod Rosenstein’s fault.

    The simple fact is Trump’s big, fat mouth and his Twitter feed took a bogus collusion story that was running out of steam and turned it into a serious obstruction of justice probe by a special council.

    Had Trump said absolutely nothing, as his lawyers advised, he wouldn’t be facing this problem. But because, by his own admission, he’s a counter puncher, he felt the need to lash out at nonsense. The pride he has in being a counter puncher actually makes him reactive and hostage to news of the day.

    Now your first paragraph is something I actually agree with you completely.

    However, given what he is facing from the Comey-Mueller-MSM axis at present he needs to strike back. Silence on his end allows them to control the flow of information as they present it ala leaks and slanted stories.

  391. Hugh says:

    398. Nothing. I think she wins comfortably

  392. Robbie says:

    Adding to my view that Trump’s in this mess because he felt the need to counter punch and fire Comey is the very Trump friendly writer Byron York.

    In a piece today about what he called Trump’s current predicament, he wrote this. “Without the president’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, the Trump-Russia investigation would be on a downward trajectory.”

    398. Nothing. I think she wins comfortably

    – This morning Joe Scarborough (I know, I know) said on his show private polling by Republicans shows Handel trailing by 4-6 points.

    – It may feel good to hit back at accusations, but it’s not the advice top political strategists would ever give a candidate. For instance, Clinton left the hatchet job on Starr to his subordinates. Throughout 1998, he basically kept his public focus and message on his legislative priorities. Remember all of the stories about how Clinton was able to compartmentalize? And it worked for him as his approval rating actually increased in the midst of impeachment.

    Had Trump, for the last five months, said something like, “I look forward to the learning the findings of the Russia investigation and fully expect to be totally exonerated. In the meantime, we need to focus on legislation that will get the economy growing again”, he would be in great shape.

    Unfortunately, Trump always chooses to chase the shiny object and that’s resulted in a myriad of self inflicted wounds.

  395. Hugh says:

    I think based on a post a few days ago the early voting percentages are not too far from a blowout election. Seems to me it’s unlikely a Bernie style dem is going to significantly outperform with independents but we will see. Plus the age chart of who is voting seems pretty old.

  396. GPO says:

    Hugh- to be clear a blowout for who?

  397. Sean says:

    Wes, I’m in the Trump has done some wrong, some right, “somewhat approve” or “slightly approve” category… But I’m more of a lurker/occasional poster more so than a “Regular” and I generally agree with your assessment!

    Basically HHR has two factions now:

    1) those to whom Trump can do no wrong

    2) those to whom Trump can do no right.

    Watching their interminable arguing is like sitting on the front row at Wimbledon.

  398. janz says:

    I think there are 3 basic groups of people @ HHR:

    1. Those who think Trump does no wrong;

    2. Those who prefer Trump’s policies over HRC’s, but don’t agree with much of his conduct in public.

    3. Those who think Trump can do nothing right.

    Some Republicans fear a loss in GA6 could spark a wave of retirements. That’s a big reason why Democrats were able to win in 2006.

  401. janz says:

    Ironically, Trump’s combative nature helped him persevere, and surprisingly win the 2016 election. It is also this same combative nature which is contributing to his testy, abrasive relationships, and continuous stream of presidential problems.

  402. Cash Cow TM says:

    It is still too soon for Handel to to punch out a reporter?

    Worked in Montana….

  403. Cash Cow TM says:

    There are more leaks in D.C. than the Oroville d in Calefornyia…

    Pretty soon the swamp will run out of water to activate the leaks. Then it will not be leaks, it will semi-solid sludge ooze.

  404. I support Donald Trump says:

    I’m confused. More Republicans are voting early so why the pessimism?

    I’m confused. More Republicans are voting early so why the pessimism?

    – Because the polling indicates some portion of Republicans are crossing over to support Ossoff. It was a mistake to choose Price for HHS.

  406. Chicon says:

    Question….How I’d Rasmussen getting such different approval numbers than the rest of the polling community?

  407. Chicon says:

    How does….

  408. DW says:

    “Because the polling indicates some portion of Republicans are crossing over to support Ossoff.”

    Then they weren’t Republicans to begin with. Ossoff is a left-wing moon-bat. Its a red tilting district.

  409. Hugh says:

    407. I do not see a blowout for Handel. However the EV is not too different percentage wise from 2016 which was a huge blowout. My point is I think it bodes well for Handel. Also the trajectory the last few days has been good for Handel and the EV seem percentage wise looks older than in 2017 also good for Handel. Therefore I think it indicates she can win by a comfortable not blowout level. If the dem was more moderate I could see a large crossover vote but he is not so I am not buying that he is winning 15 percent of rep or a huge majority of independents.
