    i think baker could lose

  2. lisab says:

    he is not terribly popular among the gop

  3. lisab says:

    North Korea said on Friday the death of Warmbier soon after his return home was a mystery and dismissed accusations that Warmbier had died because of torture and beating during his captivity as ‘groundless’.

    North Korea’s foreign ministry spokesman said Warmbier was ‘a victim of the policy of strategic patience’ of former President Barack Obama whose government

    never requested his release,

    according to comments carried by the official KCNA agency.

  4. janz says:

    It’s too bad about Elizabeth Warren’s lead. She is now leading with universial health care to lure Trump voters over to the Dems in 2018.

  5. janz says:

    …And, with healthcare going south because of the lack of concenus among fractured Rs, the Dems appear to be in the driver’s seat, even though they are the minority party.

  6. Tina says:

    Mr. Wising,somebody was using my handle. This is the third time this has happened.

  7. Hugh says:

    Janz. 4. Curious logic.

  8. Robbie says:

    Strengthening the Senate majority has to be a top priority in 2018. I hope the issues mentioned in this story are corrected quickly.

    “I follow Victoria’s Secret models Josephine Skriver, Sara Sampaio, Martha Hunt, Candice Swanepoel, and Izabel Goulart though.”

    -I follow my wife’s orders.

  10. NYCmike says:

    Odd to see the group of people publicly opposing the ACHA bill: Cruz, Lee, Paul, but then Ron Johnson, Collins, now Capito.

    Hopefully, the reactionary ones at HHR will not start blaming “deadenders” again…….

  11. Bitterlaw says:

    That is not the real Janz, either.

  12. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – would you prefer an imperfect bill or Obamacare? That is the choice right now.

    NYC to weasel out with “I want a perfect bill and that is not weasel in out” in 3…2…1…

    Ok, primary him.

  14. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    If they pass a bill, and things do not improve, please explain to me what happens.

    My opinion is this: It is better to let Obamacare run its course, IF THE REPUBLICAN BILL JUST NIBBLES AROUND THE EDGES, because I don’t think it will improve the situation.

    If the writers of the bill are positive it will lower premiums and give people more options, then let’s have the vote and see what happens. Unfortunately, I have more faith in the Republicans dissenting at this time, but I am not closed down to having a vote.

  15. NYCmike says:

    “Ok, primary him.”

    -Uh oh…..

  16. NYCmike says:

    The simple fact is this: Most Republican Senators are like jason, who already believes that a government program CAN’T BE REPEALED.

    For the short history of our country, that is mainly true.

    I would like to alter the trajectory of this country’s government, due to the fact that insurmountable debt is just that, insurmountable.

    Governments can change, if the representatives are willing.
    MATH does not change. Insurmountable debt does not disappear without severe consequences.

  17. Bitterlaw says:

    If you are willing to let Obamacare run its course, you must not think it is so bad.

  18. NYCmike says:

    “NYC – would you prefer an imperfect bill or Obamacare? That is the choice right now.”

    -What is it about PA and only 2 options?

    Free-market-oriented bill is a 3rd option, which has NOT been tried yet.

    Get Democratic Senators voting against catastrophic plans.

    Get Democratic Senators voting against insurance across state lines.

  19. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    I am dealing with it, every day. The only good thing is it is called “Obamacare”.

    If a new bill is passed, and things do not improve, “Trumpcare” will be the new name, which helps the Democratic Party.

    I want an improvement, simple as that. Give the citizens more information about the bill. Let’s see if Cruz, Lee, Paul, Johnson, etc are “grandstanding”, or if they are standing up for principles that I, as a Republican, want to see exhibited in the new legislation.

  20. Cash Cow TM says:

    “never requested his release,”

    Would BHO have requested the release if the NORKS
    had held Dennis Rodman or another brother?

    (is it wrong for Cow to postulate this?)

  21. NYCmike says:

    Cheers, and good night.

  22. NYCmike says:

    “another brother”?

    If someone called me “brother”, I would ask them what my mother’s name was.

    If they didn’t know, I would tell them “I ain’t your brother, so please don’t call me that.”

  23. Cash Cow TM says:

    GOP is going the healthcare thing all wrong.

    All they need to do is pass laws to outlaw certain diseases.

    Even Dems would vote to outlaw diseases.

    Make sure to do the expensive ones first.

  24. Cash Cow TM says:

    “If someone called me “brother”, I would ask them what my mother’s name was.”

    The Amish community would take exception to that.

  25. Bitterlaw says:

    I think the vast majority of Republicans in Congress are trying to pass the best bill that they can. The current bill is not perfect but I don’t believe they are trying to preserve Obamacare.

  26. NYCmike says:

    “I think the vast majority of Republicans in Congress are trying to pass the best bill that they can.”

    -That sounds like a Democrat.

    Of course they want to pass a good bill, but they have little to no faith in removing government from the majority of decision-making.

    That is the main problem.

    (opinion, since we have not seen the whole bill yet)

  27. NYCmike says:

    Ok, good night, time for bed.

  28. NYCmike says:

    Cheers.

  29. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC thinks I sound like a Democrat? Since he supported every Deadender loser who helped defeat Republicans who could win Senate seats, maybe he should look at himself first.

    Really, you think a Republican that supports Medicaid cuts has any chance of winning in Nevada?

  31. Tina says:

    Nate Silver @NateSilver538
    My unpopular(?) opinion: Stories alleging Trump-Russia collusion have in fact relied too much on anonymous or otherwise thin sourcing.

    Is this guy that stupid?

  32. janz says:

    Is the GOP going about healthcare reform backwards?

    BTW Bitter, no one has taken my handle yet.

  33. Paul says:

    Time to get to bed and plan how to work to defeat and destroy Trump during the next few years.

  34. Paul says:

    When is Trump at the baseball field?

  35. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    33. “Time to get to bed and plan how to work to defeat and destroy Trump during the next few years.”

    The next few years? I thought the goal was to drive him out within a short-time? I have a friend who bet me he would be out within 180 days of his taking office. Sounds like you have given up. Just because you have lost four special elections, and the Russia hacking investigation is now focused on Obama & Loretta Lynch, doesn’t mean you have failed — ah, oh never mind.

  36. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “When is Trump at the baseball field?”

    Why? Did you have something in mind? Hope you realize a statement like that can bring you under law enforcement scrutiny.

  37. Trump says:

    People as stupid as this Paul,disaster should not breed.

  38. Paul says:

    Crooked Trump is a fake president.

  39. Paul says:

    Fake media for a fake president.

  40. Jonesy says:

    Is Paul actually Cory CCCP or MD?

  41. Wes says:

    Paul is so unhinged he overtly threatens an assassination attempt against the President of the United States on a public forum.

    I hope Bubba makes you his bitch in prison, Paul.

    As long as Paul and his ilk are the kinds of supporters are the kinds of people the Left trots out, Dems will have no electoral success against Trump and the GOP.

  42. Tina says:

    Mccabe appears to have violated the hatch act. There are numerous pictures showing him campaigning with his wife. In one photo, he is wearing a shirt.

    He also appears to have taken part of several meetings with his wife and the va governor.

    Not to mention hismfailure to recuse himself in the hillary matter. He probably goes as soon as the new director is confirmed.

    Does this feel like America? Where the White House takes q’s from conservatives, then openly trashes the news media in the briefing room.

    http://circa.com/politics/accountability/did-the-fbi-retaliate-against-michael-flynn-by-launching-russia-probe

    Looks like thenfbi retaliated against flynn.

    The EEOC case, which is still pending, was serious enough to require McCabe to submit to a sworn statement to investigators, the documents show.

    The deputy director’s testimony provided some of the strongest evidence in the case of possible retaliation, because he admitted the FBI opened an internal investigation into Gritz’s personal conduct after learning the agent “had filed or intended to file” a sex discrimination complaint against her supervisors.

  45. Bitterlaw says:

    Threats against the President? Time to ban Paul. I don’t feel like meeting the Secret Service because that dirtbag posts here.

  46. jason says:

    “Time to get to bed and plan how to work to defeat and destroy Trump during the next few years.”

    I guess the quick strategy is not working out that well huh?

  57. jason says:

    I come down on the side of its not ok to refuse to make wedding cakes just because the customers are gay.

    Making a cake, as long as there is nothing requested on the cake that is offensive, does not mean you condone gay marriage.

    Oh, wait….

    – It was absolutely an outrage when Obama tried to cut out FoxNews. Interestingly enough, the other news services went to bad for Fox when Obama’s staff tried to get them kicked out of the pool.

  61. Mr.Vito says:

    “as long as there is nothing requested on the cake that is offensive”

    That’s sounds good on paper, but what is considered offensive and who determines it? Two little men on top?

  62. Tina says:

    It is no bluff, his attorney is still working on it. The leaks were more significant than first thought.

  63. Tina says:

    It is not the first time that comedy has leaked.

  64. Robbie says:

    As far as attacks on the media go, I’ve always thought it’s a waste of time for politicians, left or right, to get involved in wars with the press. As the old saying goes, “never get involved in a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel”. It distracts from policy/legislative goals and often leaves the politician looking thin skinned.

    The wedding cake issue is 237th on my list of issues. If you don’t want to bake it, I guess you should not have to bake it. However, it is probably selective religious objection unless you also told all those fornicating, shacked up couples you were not baking cakes for them, either.

    Other than being jerks, I do not know why the people getting married would want a cake from somebody who didn’t approve of them.

  74. Mr.Vito says:

    “… unless you also told all those fornicating, shacked up couples you were not baking cakes for them, either.”

    How many people buy cakes honoring their fornication? if so, I’m guessing the baker would sit that out as well.

  77. Bitterlaw says:

    How many people buy cakes honoring their fornication?

    Most people getting married had the milk before they bought the cow.

  78. Mr.Vito says:

    “Most people getting married had the milk before they bought the cow.”

    And so they should get married, and the baker would support that.

  79. Bitterlaw says:

    I’m glad lisab posted the links. I was worried it was her driving the truck.

  80. lisab says:

    regarding the cake: the argument will be that if a business can refusee service to gays they can refuse service for blacks, and yes segregation was defended by religious arguments

    also,

    the business has a business license to conduct business in public, and thus must serve all customers who can pay.

    the business need not make wedding cakes, but if it does, then they must sell to all

    and it is the business that must serve the customer, no particular employee must make the cake, it is the business that must provide the cake. if the business is willing to hire a separate cook to make cakes for gay people, that is the business’ business. so long as the quality of service is comparable, they are certainly allowed to outsource.

  81. Mr.Vito says:

    “if a business can refusee service to gays”

    That will be the argument… however, the argument will be that the business did not refuse service to gays, but refused to sell a particular product, which is perfectly legal even without religious objection.

    It will be argued that any ‘licensure’ argument is still subject to religious freedom, which is what the case hinges upon. Thus, any statute or license requirement found to be in violation of the first amendment is irrelevant.

  82. Bitterlaw says:

    300 morally indignant comments by lisab to follow in 3…2…1…

  83. Mr.Vito says:

    Hopefully, not… there is no reason to litigate it here, since SCOTUS has taken it up.

  84. Wes says:

    The baker wholegheartedly believes a book whose central character orders genocide and mass murder, calls an adulterer and mastermind of a murder plot a “man after his own heart,” strikes people dead for trying to steady the Ark of the Covenant, and in one verse claims to make evil.

    Baking a cake for two guys (or women) planning to marry offends his sensibilities though.

    I’m fine with his not baking the cake as it’s his right, but I find the double standard on objectionable actions more than a bit amusing.

  85. Bitterlaw says:

    Tragic. Shouldn’t you know if the gun is loaded before you start discussing gun safety? Of course, I have never loaded a gun so maybe it is a difficult thing to know.

    that is lesson number two

    after telling people to never point a gun at anyone unless you intend to kill them

  88. lisab says:

    not sure if this is true,

    but my father said when he went through basic training during the korean war

    that on the firing range they had men with 0.45 pistols behind the guys practicing with rifles

    and they told them if they pointed the guns anywhere but down range they risked getting shot

  89. Wes says:

    I’m not sure the guy in 90 was the best person to teach gun safety.

    He should have emptied the magazine, put on the safety, and pointed the gun away from any other human beings after going into and closing off a room only he and his sons were present in.

  90. Mr.Vito says:

    I am sorry that Wes does not seem to follow the ‘characters’ and ‘plot’ of the ‘book’… he is usually good at that.

  91. Wes says:

    I’ve read that particular book dozens of times, Vito. Genocide is genocide. Mass murder is mass murder. Adultery and conspiracy to commit murder are adultery and conspiracy to commit murder. Saying “I create evil” means “I create evil.”

    No amount of sophistry can change tbat.

  92. Mr.Vito says:

    “I’ve read that particular book dozens of times…”

    I figured you had, which is why you should understand it by now.

  93. Mr.Vito says:

    If you start at the beginning with a being that creates everything, and has the power of life and death, and knows what rules must be followed for life and death, the rest is pretty easy to follow.

  94. Tina says:

    How many round tables and Podesta emails did it take to settle on that name?

  96. Wes says:

    Oh, I understand completely, Vito.

    Megalomania begets abominable acts. The God of the Bible makes George R. R. Martin look like a piker on the apocalyptic destruction front.

    That’s one of many reasons I regard the Bible to be a fanciful work of cobbled together fiction and nothing worth taking seriously as s religious tome.

    You disagree of course. That’s fine, but I will never see things your way. I’ve heard your arguments dozens if not hundreds of time from other believers. Never once have I found them credible enough to change my mind.

  97. Mr.Vito says:

    “Oh, I understand completely, Vito.”

    Then you understand that God came to Earth to show us how to be men…

  98. Bitterlaw says:

    Mr. Vito – Leave Wes alone. I already expect that I am going to Hell. I was looking forward to hearing Wes’ stories when we are both there.

  99. Mr.Vito says:

    You want God to be equal with a man. Then you should see how God behaved as a man… he was a servant who devoted his life to saving others.

  100. jason says:

    “As far as attacks on the media go, I’ve always thought it’s a waste of time for politicians, left or right, to get involved in wars with the press.”

    Translation: since I don’t like Trump, I think its fine to have him attacked incessantly with fake news. And of course I oppose his twitter use because I don’t want the narrative interfered with.

    Simple minds can be read like a book.

  101. Mr.Vito says:

    “Mr. Vito – Leave Wes alone.”

    When Wes brings it up, I respond. I don’t proselytize or reject him as a person… that would be pointless.

  102. jason says:

    I am a secular person.

    I find wes’ characterizations of the Bible infantile, sophomoric and frankly, ignorant.

    “I regard the Bible to be a fanciful work of cobbled together fiction and nothing worth taking seriously as s religious tome.”

    Really dumb. More so because Wes is smart enough to know that this is garbage.

  105. Trump says:

    Just wait for the retard to start a new narrative soon.

    Every loony garbage of this moron gets smacked by reality.

    And then he jumps on the next one.

    That’s his modus operandi.

  106. jason says:

    “It’s sounds good on paper, but what is considered offensive and who determines it? Two little men on top?”

    If two little men on top of a cake is offensive to the baker he needs psychiatric help.

    The standard of what’s offensive should not have to change. If he is a religious guy, he would find offensive a straight couple asking to have a little man and little woman having sex on the cake. Same as if the gay couple wanted two men having sex on the cake.

    Van Jones is an idiot.

  110. Mr.Vito says:

    “The standard of what’s offensive should not have to change.”

    Well, then you were not talking about offensive to one’s religious conscience… that’s different. Certainly there are a lot of differences between an offense of common censorship and religious objection.

    Nonetheless, even those standards change all the time, and aren’t even the same between jurisdictions. So it does not resolve the question. What standards and who determines them?

  113. Wes says:

    I find your statement infantile, Jason. That you believe the Bible is true doesn’t mean I have to do the same or know it’s anything but folklore handed down for centuries.

    I believe the Bible about as much as I believe Egyptian mythology.

    That may offend you, but quite honestly I don’t give a good goddamn.

    Believe as you like. I’ll do the same.

  114. janz says:

    I also don’t understand if two men want to order a wedding cake, and the guy refuses to do so, citing religious conflicts, the men just don’t pivot and order the cake from another more-than-willing baker glad to have their business? What is more important in this event — that they contract someone who willingly wants to bake their wedding cake, or that they are able to “force” someone to bake their wedding cake? It sounds that love and marriage was not necessarily the focal point of their upcoming special event.

  115. jason says:

    What standards and who determines them?”

    It’s true standards of what is acceptable or not changes over time. In the 50’s sit coms had two beds in the bedrooms of a couple.

    But that doesn’t mean there aren’t standards, you still can’t walk into a restaurant and start masturbating at the bar (well, in most bars) There are gray subjective areas, no doubt, but enough red lines still exist.

    The point is it really should not depend on gay or not gay. If left up to a jury, it would probably agree that asking to have fornicating bride and groom on top of the cake is offensive, while two little male figures on top a cake is not.

  116. Wes says:

    I agree with Janz. Personally I would bake a cake for them if a gay couple asked and had the money. If I didn’t though, there must be another baker somewhere who would.

  117. jason says:

    I find your statement infantile, Jason. That you believe the Bible is true doesn’t mean I have to do the same”

    I didn’t say I believe the Bible is true.

    I said your comments on the Bible were infantile, sophomoric and ignorant.

    “As far as attacks on the media go, I’ve always thought it’s a waste of time for politicians, left or right, to get involved in wars with the press.”
    Translation: since I don’t like Trump, I think its fine to have him attacked incessantly with fake news. And of course I oppose his twitter use because I don’t want the narrative interfered with.
    Simple minds can be read like a book.

    – I would have few problems with Trump’s Twitter habit if he used it to push his agenda of healthcare reform, tax reform, and infrastructure. A review of his feed though suggests his main issue seems to be a never ending battle with the press.

  125. DW says:

    rough week for Democrats.

    1) They have a house leader who shows obvious signs of mental illness–yet they cannot seem to get rid of her.

    2) Russia blew up in their faces. I mean they lost Van ‘Election-night-meltdown’ Jones. CNN is now on the run.

    Zzzzzzzzz….

    You just destroyed your own argument. Is the media interested in any of those things or are they interested in delegitimizing Trump?

    He is responding with one of the few weapons he has at his disposal.

    When the media wants to talk about tax reform, then Trump can tweet about that.

    Until then, he has to defend himself or the MSM and their brainwashed sycophantic toadies like you will own 100% of the narrative.

  129. Cash Cow TM says:

    And me….

    But there is still the dossier… one can always hope.

  131. DW says:

    Tempted to jump into the discussion of the Bible…don’t have the time really. I will say that often what happens is there is such a bias that the case for the historicity of the Biblical narratives never get a fair hearing.

    Just one example. So called ‘scholars’ will say the Exodus account is just a fable. Why? It happened around 1250-1275 BC, but when we look at all the historical and archeological evidence, we don’t see any evidence it actually happened.

    Circular reasoning–just a little?

    However, there is all sorts of evidence for the Exodus happening around 1445 BC, but they won’t accept that because they are committed to their circular argument that it had to happen just prior to 1250, but because there is no evidence found for that date, it didn’t happen.

  132. Robbie says:

    Almost all of the stories the press has pushed about Russia have been small potatoes and nothing burgers, but Trump’s compulsion to counter punch (that makes him highly reactive) has in fact drawn far more attention to the issues even though there has been no “there” there.

    Had Trump shown some discretion, the Russia collusion story would have died off months ago. Instead, his reactive behavior and itchy Twitter trigger finger led him to fire James Comey over Russia and that, in turn, prompted the naming of a special council. As Clinton, GWB, and others found, a special council always ends up finding something. Just ask Scooter Libby.

    Trump’s got his base with him. wasting time giving oxygen to stories with no foundation is a waste of Trump’s time.

  133. DW says:

    “Trump’s got his base with him.”

    He had his base with him a year ago too, and many, including me, thought it was nowhere near enough to defeat Hillary. It was. So I am not inclined to worry about how Trump spends his time. Maybe his reactive behavior has ended up hurting CNN more than had he left it alone.

  134. jason says:

    “You know that yet you continue to say otherwise.”

    Where did I say that? Is this like the imaginary posts where I cast doubt on your Catholic faith and said you opposed Romney because he was Mormon?

    Mr. Vito said it best:

    This should be good. Where did I imply that? Find me one quote where I said you supported the Russia collusion story.

    “The dossier ..one can always hope?” Are you that stupid? It doesn’t say you support the collusion, only that you want Trump damaged for your own petty motives.

    You are an MSM sycophantic brainwashed toadie whether you believe the collusion story or not, because by supporting their war on Trump you are encouraging them to keep pursuing fake news.

    Died out my ass, if Trump didn’t fight back he would be completely paralyzed by now.

    – Trump’s presidency is paralyzed right now. Healthcare is stalled, tax reform is stalled, infrastructure is stalled, hundreds of government posts remain unfilled, his approval rating hovers around 40%, and a special prosecutor is investigating the circumstances surrounding his firing of the FBI director.

    He is almost totally reactive at this point. He’s not driving any message. Is he selling the benefits of healthcare reform? Is he making the case why the Republican plan is better? If so, what are they because I haven’t heard him sell the plan. But I do know how he feels about CNN.

  143. Trump says:

    Is there a benefit to healthcare reform?

  144. Trump says:

    Now this asshat has suddenly switched his narrative to trump’s message.

    That’s how he operates.

    You are an MSM sycophantic brainwashed toadie whether you believe the collusion story or not, because by supporting their war on Trump you are encouraging them to keep pursuing fake news.

    – Now I support the war the press is waging against Trump? Where is the evidence of that? I oppose Trump because I think he’s unqualified and incompetent. I believed that in 2011 when he teased a run for president and I believed that when he launched his run in 2015. I didn’t need the press to help form my opinion on that. I came to that conclusion long ago.

  146. Robbie says:

    Trump says:
    June 28, 2017 at 4:10 pm

  150. Trump says:

    And the GOP bill includes mandate:

    “Senate changes healthcare bill to include penalty for not having continuous coverage”

    The GOP plan is nothing more than warmed over Obamacare. Just another bailout for insurance companies.

So in other words, what the Mueller determines about Flynn is going to decided whether there’s something or nothing for Trump.

    in may the cbo made an estimate for the replacement of obamacare by the new bill

    “23 million fewer people would have insurance under GOP health-care bill, CBO says”

    ————————–

    so if you cancel obamacare completely and don’t replace it 24 million people will be uninsured

    but if you replace it with replacecare that spends hundreds of billions of dollars 23 million will be uninsured?

    – Flynn’s actions were one of the prime drivers of the original Russia probe and that led to the special council is now investigating him and Trump. So in that respect, Flynn has definitely had an impact of Trump.

    We shouldn’t forget that Trump also felt the need to fire Flynn after just three weeks on the job.

    Most of the other schools in our county are pretty good… after redistricting ours became very rough and tough. I thought a lot about our conversations last year before deciding to leave. It was a sad decision to make.

    many public school teachers have not been exposed to these techniques and i think it is very unfortunate. in my own classrooms i try to incorporate as many of these teaching practces as possible.

    too many public school teachers know very little about actual teaching methodologies. in fact, in ny we have very strict teacher tests, and many teaching students have trouble passing them, because they never were taught much about the theories behind teaching

    they just know how to fill out a lesson plan template using common core without understanding the principles behind the lesson plan template or common core for that matter.

    ***

    The thing is it used to be a decent school because it was mixed demographically. Then a new school was built near the new developments. The population left behind was mostly trailer park kids and some farm kids. It was a similar scenario to what you described with concentration of urban kids. If they had found a way to keep the demographics even between the two schools I think we could have stayed.

    The new private school is Montessori-ish. Small mixed age classes with yoga and gardening and the like.

    I’m glad your students have you.

  210. lisab says:

    i originally put the four links into one post, but HAL did not like it

    in my opinion way too many public school teachers would think the whole brain method is a good way to run a classroom

    i’d rather sandpaper my eyes while chewing tinfoil and drinking malt liquor out of a can with a straw while listening to banjo music

  211. wvally says:

    OMG Lisa my daughter’s 1st grade teacher did that days of the week thing every day. Yikes.

  212. lisab says:

    my daughter would be out of that classroom the next day …

  213. lisab says:

    i’ll teach you days of the week

    while i take a flamethrower to this place!!!!! 🙂

  214. Bitterlaw says:

    Time to move to the suburbs of Philadelphia, WV. Great schools.

    OMG Lisa my daughter’s 1st grade teacher did that days of the week thing every day. Yikes.
    ——————————————-

    the whole brain method is becoming popular

    i suppose it might seem appealing to teachers that want to teach to common core, if they don’t actually understand the ideas behind common core. that is, the teachers that are thinking, “today i have to teach item 6, subsection b, dash 11

    instead of thinking, how can i help my students learn

  216. Bitterlaw says:

    I am not happy that the MSM is being discredited by its own actions. I want it to clean up its act. Government with no independent press to report on it is a terrifying thought. The media have always had a bias. However, news reporting used to be more facts and less spin.

    I do not condone bad reporting. I want good journalism to return.

  217. Mr.Vito says:

    I want Huey Lewis and the News to return.

  218. Wes says:

    Actually, Jason, you don’t know s hit about what I know.

    If you’d like a peek into what I do know, six years in a Christian high school where I never made anything less than a B in Bible class followed by two decades of reading multile times different versions of the Bible snd reading commentaries on the Bible by a multitude of biblical scholars, Matthew Henry being the major one there. Bible-centered philosophers such as Thomas Aquinas and Anselm have also been favorites.

    I have a few decades of reading and studying the Bible and related material behind me.

    I maintain the conclusion I stated upthread.

    Thus, as I say, go f uck yourself, you condescending, sanctimonious punk.

  219. MichiganGuy says:

    “If you’d like a peek into what I do know, six years in a Christian high school”
    —————————————–
    Wes, it took you 6 years to graduate from high school. That is just sad. 🙁
    Oh, wait he didn’t actually say he graduated.

  220. The Shadow says:

    Actually, Jason, you don’t know s hit about what I know.

    But I know.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBnO9dw3n6A

  221. Bitterlaw says:

    Damn. Wes spent a lot of time studying something that he doesn’t believe in at all.

  222. Wes says:

    Religion and mythology are favorite topics of mine, Bitter. Christianity is the most significant religion in the country I live in, and a rudimentary understanding of it is necessary to understanding the development of both western civilization in general and the early settlement of the US.

    I have an avid thirst for knowledge, so I’ve studied the Bible and attendant philosophy for a couple of decades now.

  223. Bitterlaw says:

    That would be like me studying the moral greatness and patriotism towards the US of Robert E. Lee.

  224. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes – I have no issue with your studying the Bible. It is the open contempt for it that rivals that of lisab that was surprising.

    I can’t prove anything in the Bible. I don’t really care if any of it is true. I don’t know what happens when we die and I am not afraid of dying.

  225. Cash Cow TM says:

    That USS Fitzgerald collision and loss of life has really bothered Cash Cow.

    How does the U.S. naval ship not detect a huge 800 foot container ship approaching on a collision course?

  226. jason says:

    us, as I say, go f uck yourself, you condescending, sanctimonious punk.”

    The last resort of someone who knows nothing about the Bible and proud of it.

  227. jason says:

    How does the U.S. naval ship not detect a huge 800 foot container ship approaching on a collision course?”

    Befuddles non-bovines too.

    These ships are supposed to detect enemy ships and subs and planes like 40 miles away, it seems incredible a container ship could get that close, especially considering on military ships the bridge is manned at all times. Evidently nobody was on the bridge of the container ship, it was on auto pilot.

  228. jason says:

    It is the open contempt for it that rivals that of lisab that was surprising.”

    Exactly. Over the course of History thousands of scholars much smarter than wes have dedicated their lives to studying the Bible, around the world there are hundreds if not thousands of institutions of higher learning offering study of the Bible.

    I don’t claim to be a Bible scholar or to follow its teachings. But I do know that disparaging something that is the central to the core beliefs of over a billion people in the terms wes used is infantile, sophomoric and profoundly ignorant.

  229. Bitterlaw says:

    Unfortunately, people probably relied too much on technology on both ships. Why look out the window when you have radar.

  230. Bitterlaw says:

    I don’t have to believe something in order to respect the right of others to believe it. Someday, I plan on reading the Koran.

  231. Bitterlaw says:

    This father showed remarkable restraint. The police should have found the dirtbag bloodied.

  232. jason says:

    Why look out the window when you have radar.”

    Yeah, but you would think they have automated systems that would alert them of an approaching vessel even if nobody is looking out the window (which is probably mandatory in a shipping lane like they were).

  233. jason says:

    I don’t have to believe something in order to respect the right of others to believe it.”

    Well, but wes KNOWS the Bible is trash, he got a B in Bible class.

    And he called me condescending. I love this place.

  234. NYCmike says:

    “And he called me condescending. I love this place.”

    -He also called you a “sanctimonious punk”, but I see you did not mention that part, so I guess he got something correct.

  235. Bitterlaw says:

  236. NYCmike says:

    Rank each “sanctimonious punk” as best to worst (1=always sanctimonious to 4=sometimes sanctimonious)

    My List:

    1) “CG” – remains the King of Sanctimony

    2) MD – a close second with statements seen on his Twitter account

    3) Robbie – devout Catholicism takes a turn towards the Dark Side (Wes says “I told ya so!”)

    4) jason – trait that is always lingering, but w/o MD and Author to run interference, it has stayed largely dormant, AT THIS TIME.

  237. NYCmike says:

    Author was not included, due to his appreciation of the finer things in life that America has bestowed upon this world, Disney and WWE.

    And also because of his cooking expertise……

  238. Robbie says:

    Interesting strategy for Trump to go after Mika’s facelift on Twitter this morning.

  239. Robbie says:

    Is Trump playing 3D chess on twitter, or is he actually playin 17D chess?

  240. Mr.Vito says:

    The two Cor(e)ys and Diogenes are the only ones I would call sanctimonious.

    MD was in regard to Trump.

  241. Phil says:

    I wouldn’t have mentioned Mira’s facelift. On the other hand Joe and Mika are just bat sh*t crazy when it comes to all things Trump. Completely over the top. Ever catch their morning act? LOL Mika I get. Partisan D all the way. Joe? The ultimate Rino. Loves those Manhattan and Georgetown dinner parties with his liberal friends. The norm is for Republicans to sit back and lay there while libs pee all over them in public. See W. Trump isn’t Bush.

  242. Robbie says:

    For goodness sake, Phil. We’re talking about the President of the United States, not some random dude on twitter. There’s no excuse for a president, any president, to tweet something like this. I don’t care how crazy Joe and Mika are. This is terrible behavior and it does NOTHING to help Trump push forward his agenda.

  243. jason says:

    4) jason – trait that is always lingering, but w/o MD and Author to run interference, it has stayed largely dormant, AT THIS TIME.”

    Snifff….4th place?

    NYC really knows how to hurt a guy…

  244. Chicon says:

    248 – yep, he’ll never accomplish anything if he doesn’t get off Twitter….

    I don’t expect an emotion based Trump hater to analyze things clearly, but his peeps outside the Washington/MSM bubble like the way he stands up to the establishment. That is why they elected him.

  245. Robbie says:

    Trump advisor- Sir, this is a pivotal moment in the effort to repeal and replace Obamacare. We don’t have the votes yet and we may need you to help persuade one or two Senators why this bill needs to pass.

    Trump- Ok. I’ll tweet about Mika’s facelift. That should help bring Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins along.

  246. jason says:

    Poor Wobbie…

    3 hours research at all his favorite left wing sites and all he could come up with was a tweet about Mika?

    Slim pickings these days…

    But maybe the bodyguard will develop into something.

    – This is not standing up to Washington/MSM. This is boorish, petty behavior that is beneath, not just the dignity of the presidency, but of common decency. Is it now ok for a president to attack the appearance of someone on twitter? That said, I’m hardly surprised you’d ride to Trump’s defense on this.

  248. jason says:

    He also called you a “sanctimonious punk”, but I see you did not mention that part,”

    I earn so many points, I can’t focus on the lesser ones.

    Being called condescending by a guy who disparaged the Bible earned the most points.

    But thanks for the concern.

    – I guess you’re ok with a president launching such a nasty and personal attack against someone. Last year, you would have screamed from the rooftop about this. Now, you’re fine with it simply because Trump won.

  250. jason says:

    his is boorish, petty behavior that is beneath, not just the dignity of the presidency,”

    Zzzzzzz…..

    Spare me your fake outrage you sanctimonious punk*

    Everyone knows that if Trump tweeted the cure for cancer you would attack him for it…

    * Copyright wes

  251. Chicon says:

    255 – is the face lift really all you got from the Tweet? You really didn’t get the part about the phonies in the media who bash him as a rube (like you do), and then want to be around him off-air? Blinded by hate, you are……

  252. Robbie says:

    If Barak Obama has attacked the looks of a conservative media personality (Coulter, Ingraham, etc.), this comment section would have rightly been up in arms. Now that it’s Trump, it’s just him standing up to the establishment.

  253. Phil says:

    I said I wouldn’t have done it. No way.

    I don’t know why he does it. His thin skinned persona is counter productive to be sure.

    That said, Mika and especially Joe can go screw themselves. Now they can go out and play the victims when they are anything but.

  254. Trump says:

    Another tweet, another meltdown by the rabid trum hater retard.

    What’s not to like?

  255. Phil says:

    As far as nasty attacks, have you ever even watched Morning Joe?

  256. Trump says:

    Ridicule is the best offense.

    Don’t they teach this anymore?

    What did so-called dignity get George W? Eternal love?

  257. Phil says:

    Dignity got W about 30 percent approval when he left office.

    On a good day.

    – Here’s a wild thought. Trump could have made just the point you suggested he without mentioning a facelift. Or are you ok with Trump, speaking as the president, attacking a woman in such a personal way. Are there now no bounds about what can be said. Should Trump, in a future Twitter attack on someone like Guy Benson, note that he’s gay?

  260. Jonesy says:

    Poor Robbie. Continues to defend MSM trash

  261. Trump says:

    Now that trump tweeted, I assume the GOP congress is taking the day off.

  262. Jonesy says:

    Guy Benson is a never Trumper. Who cares that he is Gay?

    Robbie are you homophobic?

  263. Mr.Vito says:

    In fairness, Joe was also bleeding from his facelift.

  264. Robbie says:

    Phil says:
    June 29, 2017 at 10:12 am
    As far as nasty attacks, have you ever even watched Morning Joe?

    – Actually, no and that’s the point. No one is watching that show so who cares what gets said by them. But now that Trump has attacked them in such a personal way, he will draw attention to what they have said and it will get heard by 10 times the number of people than it otherwise would have.

  265. Trump says:

    If it ridiculed guy benson, sure.

    Is gay being ridiculous?

  266. jason says:

    guess you’re ok with a president launching such a nasty and personal attack against someone”

    Yeah, I am ok with him attacking the MSM considering the attacks on him are much worse than anything he has tweeted.

    However, only you and the other MSM brainwashed toadies think this is so important.

    As far as what I posted last year, nothing has changed. I stand by my posts that Trump’s attack on McCain’s POW was one of the stupidest and most disgusting political attacks ever and prompted me to say I would never vote for him.

    Mika’s face lift…..zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

  267. Jonesy says:

    Mika has accused the President, several times. that the POTUS was mentally ill.

    Equal rights for Women. If they dish out vile spew, then they should be able to take vile spew

  268. Trump says:

    Not talking about Russia anymore, did you notice?

    Pure genius.

  269. Chicon says:

    257 – it gets tiring explaining the same things to you 750 times…..

    I don’t like how Trump does things sometimes. I would not have said anything about Mika. Difference is that I’ve retained the ability to realize that he was an open book in the campaign, and that the public elected him BECAUSE of who he is, nit IN SPITE of who he is. You, on the other hand are still butt hurt that a guy you don’t like won, and you’re further butt hurt that he has the audacity to operate the same way after the election as during the campaign. Being butt hurt makes for emotional (aka, poor) analysis.

  270. Phil says:

    I doubt that, Robbie. The lefty partisans and never Trumper Republicans will tune in. So what. What? They are going to hate him more? How is that possible and so what?

  271. jason says:

    Or are you ok with Trump, speaking as the president, attacking a woman in such a personal way.”

    LOL “a woman”

    Right, the women in the MSM NEVER attack Trump in a personal way.

    You really are a pathetic MSM lapdog.

  272. Jonesy says:

    Time again, for all to scroll down on
    Robbie.

    He is obsessed with Hatred for Trump, and voted for Hillary Clinton. He will never give trump any quarter.

  273. Mr.Vito says:

    “257 – it gets tiring explaining the same things to you 750 times…..”

    It won’t sink in.

  274. Jonesy says:

    good point Trump.

    Has Reynolds Wrap ever apologized for quoting bogus CNN tweets?

  275. Trump says:

    One thing for sure, trump has absolutely destroyed the Megan Kelly brand.

    Check her ratings.

  276. jason says:

    ou, on the other hand are still butt hurt that a guy you don’t like won, and you’re further butt hurt that he has the audacity to operate the same way after the election as during the campaign. Being butt hurt makes for emotional (aka, poor) analysis.”

    Exactly. You have Wobbie pegged to a T. It all comes back to Jeb Bush.

    It’s tunnel vision at its worse.

    – And yet you are ok with him attacking a woman in such a personal way? We’re talking about the President of the United States, not some random dude on Twitter. If Trump would prefer to be a reality TV show host who speaks out about everything and anything, he can always go back to being a reality TV show host. That’s not what the presidency entails though.

  278. Jonesy says:

    Robbie needs help. His purpose on this board, is to post pathetic tweets that will get a rise out of people here. Have a cousin like that. Needs attention.

    Just ignore him.

    – And how big are their numbers? If they were big enough to make a difference, he wouldn’t have been elected.

  280. Mr.Vito says:

    Trump just exposed another leaker.

  281. Trump says:

    What the presidency entails is not up to you to decide, retard.

  285. Chicon says:

    Jason and Jonesy – agreed. Trump is going with the eye-for-an-eye approach with the media. People elected him to do that, and he’s doing it.

  286. Jonesy says:

  295. Phil says:

    Poor, poor Mika……big bad mean old Trump monster took a shot at her on twitter. Horrors. He’s supposed to lay there quietly while she and Rino boy unload on him day in and day out.

    Point is, this is no big deal. CNN will go crazy. Well, how is that any different than what they say about Trump yesterday, or the day before, or the day before that……

  300. Jonesy says:

    305. Agreed Phil. Robbie spent the last two months telling us Trump would be impeached, and now that it is fake news, he wants to defend vile Marxist MSM women.

    309. 40% in over sampled Dem polls.

    Are you union fees pretty high Robbie? do you picket?

  305. Phil says:

    Universal hatred from the MSM, Democrats, and Republican establishment types like you Robbie equals a 40% approval rating.

    You think it would be higher if he laid off the likes of Mika and Joe? Please.

  306. Trump says:

    How many polls predicted Trump winning pa, mi, wi?

    Retard is fixated on fake news and fake polls.

    Just because I know everyone here hates Graham.

    Lindsey Graham?
    @LindseyGrahamSC

    Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America.

  316. Bitterlaw says:

    The greatest President of my lifetime managed to lead before twitter was invented. I do not recall Reagan playing down to his critics.

  317. Walt says:

    Was on the local radio this morning with another former State Delegate.

    The radio guy said having he and I on sitting side by side reminded him of the two old men muppets sitting in the balcony…

    I was asked to opine and bloviate on matters…

  318. PresidentPaul! says:

    “The greatest President of my lifetime managed to lead before twitter was invented. I do not recall Reagan playing down to his critics.”

    At least Trump has stated the truth: that we have fake news.

  319. Jonesy says:

    Wow. We now get tweets from every Never Trumper RINO in Congress.

    Back to the picket lines, Robbie

  320. Jonesy says:

    Reagan would have used Twitter, if he had it. He would have scorched the MSM.

    Bush had it, but preferred to hide in the White House, and go to bed at 9pm.

  321. Bitterlaw says:

    Reagan did not make nasty personal attacks. He made jokes while skewering his critics. That is why he was a master politician.

  322. Chicon says:

    326 – I do remember Reagan fighting the press hard, often using Sam Donaldson in that regard.

    I posted above that I would not have tweeted about Mika’s face. I agree with Sasse and Graham about the dignity. But I respect that the the electorate chose a guy that does things differently than I would.

  323. Chicon says:

    332 – my preferred method. Trump’s style is a tad different, to say the least. But nobody should be surprised by this – there was no bait-and-switch involved.

  324. Trump says:

    So trump is not Reagan.

    Why should he be?

  325. Robbie says:

    I guess I thought the point pf electing a Republican Congress and president was to enact conservative legislation. Instead, it seems the point of electing a Republican Congress and president was to teach the MSM a lesson.

  326. Trump says:

    Has congress passed any conservative agenda, retard?

    If it has, has trump refused to sign it, moron?

  327. Trump says:

    Maybe you should take it up with McConnell and Ryan to pass conservative agenda, idiot.

  328. Jonesy says:

    Reagan is my idol, but he was never able to take the House.

    Trump did

  329. Jonesy says:

    332. Reagan went after Jimmy Carter pretty good, Bitterlaw

  330. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    June 29, 2017 at 11:01 am
    Reagan is my idol, but he was never able to take the House.
    Trump did

    – And yet Reagan got the vast majority of his agenda passed. Trump’s gotten nothing so far, but he has waged war on the MSM and earned himself a 40% approval rating.

  331. Trump says:

    This is the new fake media taping point, dipshi$ Robbie.

  332. Bitterlaw says:

    Reagan is my idol, but he was never able to take the House.

    Trump did

    No. he just did not lose it when he ran for President. The House and Senate were already controlled by the GOP.

  333. Trump says:

    What part of his agenda did Reagan get passed in his first 5 month, moron?

  334. Bitterlaw says:

    332. Reagan went after Jimmy Carter pretty good, Bitterlaw

    I missed have missed him calling Carter an ugly moron with an ugly wife. Oh wait. He did not do that. Apparently, some people do not realize that you can be critical of a person’s policies or conduct without going after their appearance.

  335. Trump says:

    The only accomplishment Reagan had in his first 100 days was PROPOSING tax cuts and increasing military spending.

  336. Jonesy says:

    343. Not the point. Reagan in two landslides could not win the House.

    Trump won the House and Senate, does not matter if they already had control

  337. Paul says:

    I went to bed worried and a little angry about Trump the other night and so I prayed to God. I asked for forgiveness and for God to help us. And today Trump is back on twitter. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

  338. Trump says:

    I don’t know what Reagan did, in his early months. Nothing to show for it.

  339. Trump says:

    He didn’t even tweet, to take up his time.

  340. Robbie says:

    Trump says:
    June 29, 2017 at 11:11 am
    I don’t know what Reagan did, in his early months. Nothing to show for it.

    – He got shot and nearly died.

  341. Jonesy says:

    Reagan was the best president we ever had, better than Lincoln etc…

    But during his 8 years, his highest numbers in the House was 191 GOP Seats

  342. Jonesy says:

    349. He fired the Air Traffic Controllers. Their union was in bed with the Democrats too

  343. Trump says:

    Is that an accomplishment, dic$wad?

  344. Jonesy says:

    Reagan was a reformed man, similar to Trump.

    Reagan was a big supporter of FDR’s New Deal.

    He started his change to the right after becoming the SAG president in Hollywood. The Unions in the 1940’s were just as violent as the Thugs today

  345. Trump says:

    That was for the retard’s comment on Reagan getting shot.

  346. Waingro says:

    I’m with Robbie on this one. I’m not saying that this means Trump is “DONE” or that I will “never support him” or whatever because of this, but times like this sure make it hard to spin/defend him.

    Having said that, I’m sure this will blow over to some extent — mainly because most people don’t know or care about the Morning Schmoe and the soon-to-be Mrs. Schmoe.

    Why the President, of course, feels the need to tweet about them given the above is beyond me.

  347. Jonesy says:

    Wain, he puts the MSM on their heels by tweeting. They cannot define the narrative.

    She called Trump mentally ill on her show several times? she deserved what she got. Why defend her?

  348. Waingro says:

    #359, who is “defending her”? The President has nothing to gain but a ton to lose politically by engaging in ridiculous fashion with a nobody like Mrs. Schmoe.

  349. Waingro says:

    Even Trumpkin 4 Life, Laura Ingraham gets this.

  351. Ned stark says:

    Jonesy. Not that it matters re Reagan as a great president but PATCO supported Reagan in the election. The contract negotiations weren’t going well under Carter and they thought they had a deal with Reagan. When that didn’t happen, they violated fed law and went on strike.

  352. dblaikie says:

    Well another and another bogus poll showing that no one likes the GOP health care plan. Given the spite between the administration and the main stream media why would I believe their polls?

    When will the folks in this country learn that most polls, unlike the past, don’t try to give an accurate snapshot of public opinion, but rather are not tools to shape the news. That is just the sad truth.

  353. dblaikie says:

    I hate typos, “but rather are tools to shape the news.”

  356. Bitterlaw says:

    Philadelphia District Attorney pleads guilty to taking bribe. In 2001, the Philadelphia GOP asked me to run for DA. I said that I would think about so they put out a press release that I was the nominee. The next day, I said that I was not running because I had no experience in criminal cases and thought that the Party would look bad. Who knew the standards were so low?

  358. Barrett says:

    Polls are fun…following the numbers are fun. But don’t get caught in the trap of following bad numbers out there. Nate Silver would have you believe that Donald Trump will forever be at 39% approval.

    I call bs. He could go down to 30, he could go up to 50. If you doom yourselves to believing all polls, you are letting the msm control the narrative, and that’s not what the people deserve.

    As a counterpoint to what Robbie said in #341 – our nation was much less polarized 37 years ago than it was today. The fractures that exist in both parties make it difficult to give off the image of unity. Trust me, had Hillary won, the establishment and the progressives would be duking it out just as badly.

    We’re an energy independent country now, thanks in part to Trump.

  359. Barrett says:

    So you can’t say that the guy isn’t putting America first as he noted in his inauguration speech

    Robbie, Trump is a loud-mouthed, uncouth, ill-mannered, spoiled rich kid at certain times, and does not like being bullied, and REACTS in stupid ways. The Presidency has NOT changed him. That is both good and bad.

    In regards to his statement about Mika, it is more of the same. He is who he is, a petty, disgusting individual who was/is head and shoulders preferable to the alternative, Hillary.

    ALL future reference regarding Trump leading up to his re-election campaign should be viewed through that lens.

    Please stop with the #FAKEOUTRAGE!

  366. NYCmike says:

    As for Mika, and her eunuch, Joe, they have both questioned his mental capacity on air. They can go f*ck each other with botox for all I care.

  367. NYCmike says:

    If anything, Trump continuing to tweet about other stu ff gives congressional Republicans an opportunity to write very conservative legislation and try to pass it, without the MSM doing the usual emotional hit jobs they do.

    Use the side-show as cover, and pass conservative-oriented legislation.

  379. dblaikie says:

    384 The Constitution is one of the finest examples of Calvinist thought around. It is steeped in the doctrine of original sin — that is why there are checks and balances. Unlike Luther, it was Calvin who shook the 15th and 16th century to its core in saying that rule by divine right was abhorrent and that the best way for folks to determine the will of God as individuals, as a country or a church is through a representation. In other words a Republic.

    Just remember the history. James Madison was the prized pupil of John Witherspoon at Princeton College whose heritage was rage against Georgian rule in the form of the Scottish Conventioneers. Besides that Witherspoon (the only member of the clergy to sign the Declaration of Independence) was Calvinist to the core.

    Finally just remember that on the floor of the British Parliament the Revolution was mainly labeled a Presbyterian Revolt. In the immortal words of Horace Walpole, “Cousin America has runoff with a Presbyterian Parson.”

    Sorry but the Bible has had an effect on our laws and our history.

    —————————————-

    the biggest influence i would say was from john locke, who may have witnessed the execution of Charles I and who thought religious toleration was essential in a democracy.

    this is not to say that john locke was not a christian or that the founding fathers were not overwhelming christian, just that the leading founding fathers, i.e. franklin, jefferson, adams etc. saw the problems that had occurred in england AND were well acquainted with locke, AND knew that even among themselves they could not agree on christian doctrine — and certainly could not hope to unite the northern and southern christians over slavery.

    since today we have substantial non-christian populations and since christians themselves cannot agree on religious dogma, imo it is best to allow religious freedom and not allow religious doctrines to drive secular laws

    – Hey, numbnuts. You want to know who on this board suggested Trump should nominate Neil Gorsuch long before the name was thrown about in the press? It was a me. It was a genuine victory for Trump, but he nominated Gorsuch on January 31. Gorsuch was confirmed the first week of April. What’s he done since other than make a mockery of the presidency?

    That said, I glad to know you think the president should attack, in personal terms, people who don’t agree with him. Nixon said always shoot up, don’t shoot down. Trump apparently thinks he should always shoot himself in the foot.

    – This presidency isn’t going to do anything great for the country because Trump’s self destructive actions are going to ruin any chance at genuine, long term success. He’s irrational and erratic. He has no impulse control.

    I never joined any MSM theme and, frankly, you need to stop relying on this weak, pathetic trope that Hannity trots out every night. I came to my conclusion about Trump back in 2011 when he pushed his birther idiocy. I’ve been consistent for a long time.

    Finally, it seems your view of independent thought is anything with which you agree. You just can’t handle views that don’t match your stance.

    This from the moron who spends hours here talking about tweets.

    – I spend time focusing on his tweets because they are ruining his presidency. He’s the president. He’s got better things to do than talk crap about a cable TV host. Ever heard of North Korea? What about health care reform? Did Trump use his powerful twitter feed to promote the passage of a repeal and replace bill today? Nope. Instead, he attacked a cable host and that has blotted out every other piece of news today.

    The Trump tweets not being used as part of a DC/establishment disciplined corporate/political messaging effort is clearly disquieting to the usual Beltway and media “pros”. They don’t know quite what to make of it or how to deal with it. Yup sometimes its gonna be ugly and wacky, but twitter and the trolling that goes with it forms the spine of social media today. And for a 70 year old white guy, Trump pretty much understands how to use it. Is it perfect? Of course not. It is nascent. But anyone who is interested in social media is fascinated by it. It was a major part of his being elected, and one of the many reasons the media and establishment are being outdone. This is just another sign of the end of their monopoly, and of the rapid way media in general is changing. Lots of folks are angry about it… but then again, many old economy workers were angry, too. They have been told by their “betters” for decades to get with the new economy. Now to a big degree the shoe is on the other foot. They are going to have to deal with major change, too.

It’s nice to see one of their targets (an easy one at that, they thought) respond in kind and knocking them off their pedestal. Free speech applies to everyone. It’s time they learned this.

    “I don’t need to be ‘saved,’ and I’ll be damned if small groups of uninformed people are voting on my livelihood,” said Sue Vallenza, a Maine bartender who spoke to the Post. Vallenza further said she’s already seeing less in tips as a result of customers who believe the wage hike had already went into effect.

    As the Post notes, labor activists are bracing themselves for similar outcries in Minnesota, New York, Massachusetts and Washington, D.C., but critics say that Maine’s servers don’t speak for the country’s restaurant workers.”

  490. Chicon says:

    Here’s a poll that Robbie must have somehow missed…..

    Gallup reports that 61% favor significant tax cuts for the middle class. Significant margins also reported for other parts of Trump’s tax plan – estate tax and limits on deductions for the rich.

    Pass this tax reform, and all Tweets are irrelevant.

  496. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    There are no coal plants in California. We import our power from the coal plants in the southwest — Four Corners region has four coal plants.

    People don’t realize, but at night a lot of Los Angeles is powered by coal. All the teslas driven by the trendy people in west LA, if charged at night, are powered by coal; and Navajo children in Arizona breath the coal plant emissions.

  497. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Northern California is powered by natural gas and hydro. However, as Gov. Brown has pointed out, because of California’s permanent drought the dams in California do not have enough water in their lakes to generate hydro power so . . . oh never mind.

    Similar to what Phil said, I find Trump’s tweet yesterday baffling as to what he supposedly wants to accomplish with his growth agenda. He basically stepped all over the policies he wants pushed, and chose instead to shoot himself in the foot in order to “push back verbally” on two idiot mouth pieces! What’s the point, let alone advantage, of doing this?

  527. biomom says:

    The prez probably feels somewhat betrayed by Scarborough and Mika. Should have known better. I have always thought Scarborough to be a buffoon. He changed.at the end of the Bush years and seemed to want the lefty media crowd to like him. Not worth all this trouble. Prez should just ignore him.

  528. Trump says:

    How did he shoot himself?

  529. janz says:

    #544. All those accomplishments listed are are true, as to what Trump has been able to get done. Confronting the biased press and “swamp” tactics of the DC establishment is seen as warranted by most. But, petty, mean-spirited comments, bursting from a president’s Twitter account, IMO, only diminishes him as well as the agenda he is supporting.

  530. BayernFan says:

    His tweet yesterday didn’t derail or step on his his policies at all. People still view the media with scorn…perhaps moreso. Folks still know about Kate’s law. I have heard more about the than the tweet. I think the reaction is more of the “beginning of the end” stuff from Trump’s opponents….the same as when he attacked McCain 2 years ago. The media personalities are flummoxed and flailing. Trump is in his element. The media have no idea what to do. They are not accustomed to being thrashed so mercilessly. The idea of “disciplined messaging” in the age of social media is becoming antiquated before our eyes in real time. It’s fascinating to watch.

  531. janz says:

    Biomom is right. People like the morning Joe idiots should simply be ignored. Now, though, these two have a bigger media presence, at least momentarily, by Trump making them news.

  532. BayernFan says:

    Trump should NOT ignore them. If they are buffoons, then it’s an opportunity to make that known to the populace. Turn them into representatives of the media and use them as punching bags. Remember, these are “personalities” masquerading as “serious journalists”. Trump is ripping away their veneer. All of them. No one gets a pass. In the age of social media, folks are eating it up and the media personalities are finally facing the music THEY WROTE to begin with. Trump does Alinsky better than they do.

  533. janz says:

    Bayern, Picking one’s battles applies as much to the presidency as it does to parenting.

  537. Trump says:

  538. janz says:

    Bayern, one only has to look at yesterday’s news cycle – how much time was spent on discussing the SK president’s visit or trump’s energy speech, for instance, vs the repercussions of Trump’s early morning spasm of tweets – to measure which event took precedence.

  539. Trump says:

    News cycles don’t affect Trump.

    Otherwise Hillary would be president.

  540. janz says:

    Who cars about Megyn kelly’s career? Not me. I care about making economic progress during a very small window of opportunity.

  541. Trump says:

    Nobody cares about energy speeches. Ever.

  542. Chicon says:

    Bayern, Janz, Biomom, Bitter, and poster Trump are all correct, imo. I believe he should vigorously fight back against the media – hard. There’s plenty of ammo without using personal attacks; not because of some code of conduct, but because it makes it look like he’s got nothing else.

    But, he was hired to fight back. Against other countries, and against the media.

  543. Trump says:

    Not fighting back killed bush legacy. Everybody remembers that.

    Do you remember his energy speeches?

  544. janz says:

    ….And, that window is getting smaller, with each passing day, which is why time spent on vindictive tweets is lost on getting an economic agenda well understood by the people and passed through congress.

    564 – he and the gop congress have until summer recess next year to do tax reform. If they do, the voters will go into the booth in a good mood.

  549. Bitterlaw says:

    Poster Trump seems to think that the only way to fight back is to be brutal and insult people.

    Reagan managed to gut an opponent by simply saying, “There you go again.”

  550. Trump says:

    Destroying the dem media machine is part of trump’s agenda.

  551. Trump says:

    Trump is not Reagan, moron.

  552. Chicon says:

    567 – would it cause you to either vote for the Democrat or stay home on election day? Just curious.

  553. Trump says:

    When Reagan runs against trump, I’ll choose Reagan.

  554. janz says:

    The personal insults is what I took issue with MD. And, if I could revisit that preelection time I would have taken the advice I’m giving Trump – which was to put MD on ignore, rather than negatively engage with him, making matters only worse.

  555. Bitterlaw says:

    Trump is not Reagan, moron

    Exactly. I was saying that all of last year when idiots compared Trump favorably to Reagan. Trump fails in every way when compared to Reagan.

  556. Chicon says:

    Trump is not Reagan.
    Trump is not Hillary.

    Both can be true.

  557. janz says:

    Chicon, I will never vote for a Dem, after the lunacy the current Dems have shown in their resistance moves. I’ve lost total respect for them as a party as well as for many of them as individuals. They are more !Ike jackles than intelligent, caring hman beings.

  558. janz says:

    I might stay home, though – although that is something I’ve never done, as I take the right to vote seriously.

  559. Chicon says:

    Thanks for the feedback, Janz.

    Btw, I enjoyed you punching back at MD last fall, and exposing him as an intolerant bully.

  560. janz says:

    I appreciate that comment, chicon. I really do….

  561. Bitterlaw says:

    I will always vote for the Republican nominee even when I know that they are not really Republicans. I did it when I lived in Philadelphia. I did it last Fall when I voted for Trump. The Democrat nominee is always worse.

  562. Phil says:

    I have zero problem with Trump ripping the MSM. I have seen what happens to a president who sits back and takes it. See W. That doesn’t end pretty. Love a Republican President who stands up and calls them out. It is a major reason Trump got the nomination. He is the first Republican to give it back.

    I wouldn’t have wasted the time on Mika Brezinski. Hell, she doesn’t have a career to destroy. If you are going to rip her go after the outrageous things she and her asshat live in have said. Calling the President mentally ill, a thug etc etc. That’s the legit target. Totally legit and he has some high ground to do so. Leave the facelift out of it. It takes away from any tweet blast you make towards the stupid things she has said. That should be the focus. Facelift just takes away from that.

  563. Mr.Vito says:

    Has Trump tweeted yet about the CNN producer saying KAC is ugly and looks like she got hit with a shovel?

  564. Phil says:

    Come on, Vito. You know that is totally ok. LOL

  565. Bitterlaw says:

    Phil – My problem is not that Trump goes after the media. It is the way he does it. He sounds like an angry child with the personal insults.

    “But Bitter, they were mean and personal against him. They called him mentally unstable…”

    Trump did them a favor by responding as he did. Stay on message, damn it.

  566. BayernFan says:

    558….. what news cycle? Those are a thing of the past. And who was supposed to be talking about those things? media personalities? Please. They will not talk about anything pro-Trump. But no matter. They are fast becoming irrelevant. Folks know what is going on. You need to escape the “news cycle” and “disciplined messaging” paradigm. It no longer applies. Presidents and public figures…. especially those of Trump’s background, are capable of doing many many things at once. Not all work, mind you, but progress is made. He is in his element. They are fish out of water.

  567. janz says:

    And then there was the press pressing in on the oval office photo opts of the S Korean president and prez trump – knockng over a table in the process and looking like unruly kids.

  568. BayernFan says:

    Let me put in another way. Trump does not need self examination and reform. The media do. They are reaping what they have sewn. That’s life. They need to deal with it.

  569. Trump says:

    Any republican who is scared of the biased media deserves to lose.

  570. BayernFan says:

    If you think about it, Trump’s relentless and “childish” outbursts against the media IS disciplined messaging.

  571. janz says:

    Baynern,. Sometimes you can neutralize a foe more by simply treating them like they don’t exist.

  572. Trump says:

    Trump’s attitude, demeanor and spirit have served him well in life.

    He would lose if he changes.

  573. Mr.Vito says:

    “…how much time was spent on discussing the SK president’s visit or trump’s energy speech, for instance, vs the repercussions of Trump’s early morning spasm of tweets…”

    How much time do you think the MSM would have spent on those things without the tweets?

    You heard Zucker… back to Russia!!

  574. Phil says:

    Bitter, I couldn’t agree more. He has to be smart about it. Facelift insults just hurt the cause. Yes, absolutely stay on message. Going down the facelift path just does the other side a favor…plus it is just unnecessary.

  575. Trump says:

    Personalize it. It’s effective every time.

  576. Trump says:

    Essence of marketing.

  577. Phil says:

    Call them out on their bias. Go after them hard on that. I love it – just leave Mika’s looks out of it.

  578. Trump says:

    No it doesn’t. From now on, every time Mika speaks, all everyone wil focus on is her looks.

  579. Phil says:

    Time to let Obamacare collapse on its own. Collins and the rest of the skittish Republicans don’t have the guts to get rid of it? Fine. Let’s see if the revival of public support of Obamacare survives the death spiral.

    Move on to taxes. There is 61% support for cutting taxes according to Gallup. What the hell are we waiting for? Enough of Obamacare.

  580. Trump says:

    Elementary branding.

    Low energy Jeb is now the Jeb brand.

    Remember when Jeb used to be a “conservative governor of a large state”?

  581. Bitterlaw says:

    DC

  582. BayernFan says:

    I’m watching and reading about the SK president visit right now. Trumps tweets about Mikas bloody facelift didn’t stop me. Or anyone else, I bet.

  583. Mr.Vito says:

    I honestly couldn’t care less about a tax cut for me personally. We don’t make all that much, but I am shocked at our effective tax rate every year after deductions…

    A flat tax would be a big increase in taxes for us.

  584. Paul says:

    Trump says:
    June 30, 2017 at 10:44 am
    When Reagan runs against trump, I’ll choose Reagan.

    You may get your wish in 2020 when Kasich primaries Trump.

  585. Trump says:

    Kasich’?

    Ha ha ha

    He is more likely to run in the dem primary.

    Kasich couldn’t convince his mother to vote for him.

  586. Trump says:

    Kssich sulked through the primaries and the general, taking his little ball and going home.

    Didn’t make difference to anything, that’s how inconsequential Kasich is.

  587. Paul says:

    Might have a chance in 2020 with Kasich. Otherwise, Trump will be going down in flames. Ha Ha.

  588. lisab says:

    “Bayern, one only has to look at yesterday’s news cycle – how much time was spent on discussing the SK president’s visit or trump’s energy speech, for instance, vs the repercussions of Trump’s early morning spasm of tweets – to measure which event took precedence.”

    exactly janz,

    while the media was talking about his tweets,

    kate’s law was passed

    AND

    the travel ban went through

    and

    there were no coordinated protests largely because the press was otherwise occupied

  589. Trump says:

    In fact, Kasich was so instrumental in Ohio, that trump won by bigger margin than Obama, bush or Clinton ever did.

    Thanks John.

    (Did you know that Medicaid expansion is in the bible?)

  590. Trump says:

    Paul, morons like you have been saying the same thing about trump for 2 years.

    Keep it up.

  591. Paul says:

    Kates Law passing the house is meaningless. It won’t make it through the Senate.

  592. Paul says:

    Trump is a treasonous anti-American. And anyone who supports him is a traitor.

  593. Paul says:

    We need to all work together (Republicans and Democrats) to make America great without Trump.

  594. lisab says:

    if you guys think trump is the most boorish president evah,

    you are the products of ford, carter, reagan, several bushes and clinton.

    nixon, lbj, kennedy, fdr, wilson and harding were all … ummmmmmmmm … not very nice men

    they make trump look like pope john paul george and ringo

  595. lisab says:

    and the sad part is

    it would be very difficult to find any of the above that i would not have preferred as president to obama

  596. lisab says:

    kate’s law is a done deal

    the dems have too many senate seats up for grabs in 2018

    unless you want to hand the republicans 4 to 8 more senate seats

    they will just bash any senator who opposes repeatedly, and it will work.

  597. Paul says:

    I’d prefer them all over Trump.

  598. Paul says:

    #MATA Make America Trumpless Again.

  599. Trump says:

    And nobody cares about your preference, dumbas$.

  600. Trump says:

    All you have is a hurting butt.

  601. Trump says:

    And your assassination porn.

    Keep jerking off.

  602. Paul says:

    Trump, you are asinine. Get off your computer in your parent’s basement and get a job. You loser.

  603. Trump says:

    The dick who calls for killing trump thinks he is a winner.

  604. lisab says:

    actually clinton was not a nice man either

    he just did not tweet about his escapades

    personally, trump’s behavior is rather mild compared to the above.

    kennedy and nixon both wanted to use nukes and were both talked out of it by their underlings. kennedy over cuba — bobby talked him out of going to war, and rumor has it nixon actually ordered a nuclear strike on north korea one night while he was drunk, and one of his generals told him to wait until morning when he was sober

  605. lisab says:

    kennedy also used to host orgies with his secretaries in the white house pool!

  606. Trump says:

    Moron jerking off to assassination porn? How much more of a loser can you be, Paul?

  607. Phil says:

    A Kos troll accusing others of living in their parent’s basement. That’s rich.

  608. Bitterlaw says:

    Phil – Nothing better than troll on troll crime.

  609. lisab says:

    if you had a child living in your basement, after age 18 of course, wouldn’t you intervene?

    first, there would be no internet, no tv, no tv’s, no smart phones. everyone would be up at 6 am at latest — hey i have to, so there is no way i’d let them sleep until noon. doors lock at 10 pm, no exceptions. and if you cannot find a job, i’ll find you a job — here is a shovel, turn all the sod over in the back yard before i get home. we need new grass … even if we don’t.

  610. lisab says:

    MATTHEWS: And then you find out in all these investigations that Jared was opening up a tunnel to Moscow so he wouldn’t have to deal with the State Department. So the son-in-law — you know, one good thing Mussolini did was execute his son-in-law. I mean, I’m talking about Ciano

  611. lisab says:

    matthews also keeps comparing trump to the romanovs …

    czar nicholas II was no trump.

  612. lisab says:

    Left wing “antifas,” wearing red bandana masks alongside other far-left protesters, have rioted multiple times and caused millions of dollars of damage, with threats from left wing groups even forcing the cancellation of a parade because it featured a float from the local Republican Party.

  613. Wes says:

    Rarely do Trump the Poster and I agree, but I have to side with him against this loathsome Paul character.

  614. lisab says:

    paul is not even trying, he makes robbie look like nietzsche

  615. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes = It is a case of the well-known saying, “The enemy of my enemy is still a moron.”

  616. Wes says:

    Ever since Dems got their asses handed to them in 2014, Chris Matthews has seemed like a character from the Arkham Asylum of the Batman franchise.

  617. jason says:

    I have been critical of many of Trumps attacks on people, such as on McCain and the “Mexican” judge.

    Scumbag Journolists whose only agenda is to promote fake news against him?

    Fire away.

  618. jason says:

    Wobbie says he “doesn’t care what the MSM says about Trump”.

    What was our first clue?

  619. Wes says:

    Golfer Natalie Gulbis is eyeing a run for NV-3. Since its creation in 2002, Republicans have won this seat in all but two elections–2008 and 2016.

    http://www.golfchannel.com/news/golf-central-blog/gulbis-reportedly-eyeing-congressional-run/

    Although Republicans have frequently won the district with majorities, neither Dina Titus nor Jacky Rosen–the lone Dems to win it–achieved a majority of the vote. This could be a prime pickup for Republicans assuming the NVGOP nominates Gulbis over perennial losing officeseeker Danny Tarkanian.

  620. Wes says:

    For the record, Rosen is foregoing reelection to challenge Dean Heller for his Senate seat. Heller is a remarkably strong incumbent in a state that has oscillated wildly between the parties since 2008 and should be at least even money for reelection against Rosen–whom Titus is likely to challenge in the primary–so long as Tark keeps his eyes on NV-3 and doesn’t launch a scorched-earth primary against the Senator.

  621. Wes says:

    If Republicans can hold the Senate seat and governorship and pick off at least one of NV-2 and NV-3 while recapturing the State Legislature, the NVGOP can recover from its fdismal showing in the state last year.

  622. Jonesy says:

    Paul sure sounds like Robbie. Hmmm…

  623. Jonesy says:

    Wes, what about Joe Heck?

  624. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    June 30, 2017 at 3:28 pm
    Paul sure sounds like Robbie. Hmmm…

    – He’s not me though. Thanks for playing, though.

    And by the way, please explain to me your brilliant theory Robert Bork would have eventually become Chief Justice had he been confirmed in 1987. I need a good laugh.

  625. Wes says:

    Heck would be a good candidate, but Gulbis has a better chance of melding the Trump forces and the mainline Republicans into a successful electoral coalition.

    Sandoval basically sat on his hands last year but with Heller seeking reelection may be more likely to get his machine out next year to help NV Republicans reclaim lost ground.

  626. Wes says:

    Bork would have either retired when GWB was President or died when Obama was in office. Dems hurt their own prospects at that seat by “borking” Bork.

    Bork would never have been Chhief Justice.

  627. Robbie says:

    “I always tell the president, ‘You don’t need them'” says Sean Hannity, the self-abasing monkey butler of the Trump regime.

    http://www.nationalreview.com/article/449145/donald-trump-media-mika-brzezinski-tweet

    Bork would have either retired when GWB was President or died when Obama was in office. Dems hurt their own prospects at that seat by “borking” Bork.
    Bork would never have been Chhief Justice.

    – I know that and you know that, but Jonesy made that buffoonish claim the other day. This guy is not what he’s making himself out to be. He reminds me of Larry who showed up in February 2016 to push Rubio and bash Cruz and then disappeared just as quickly when Rubio quit.

  629. Mr.Vito says:

    “…the self-abasing monkey butler of the Trump regime.”

    raising the discourse…

  630. Jonesy says:

    Wes, could you do us all a favor, and tutor Robbie on politics?

    I saw the GOP picked up some good recruits in the House. The Shea Porter district in NH, and the FL-7

  631. Jonesy says:

    I guess my Bork post was so much worse, than you predicting a Hillary Landslide, wobbie.

  632. Robbie says:

    Mr.Vito says:
    June 30, 2017 at 3:44 pm
    “…the self-abasing monkey butler of the Trump regime.”
    raising the discourse…

    – I guess he’s decided, if it’s ok for the president to do it (that’s the judgment of this comment section), so can he.

  633. Mr.Vito says:

    raising the discourse…

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/30/opinion/understanding-republican-cruelty.html

    “So one way to understand this ugly health plan is that Republicans, through their political opportunism and dishonesty, boxed themselves into a position that makes them seem cruel and immoral — because they are.”

    I hope Trump tweets Krugman to go f*ck himself.

  634. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    June 30, 2017 at 3:48 pm
    I guess my Bork post was so much worse, than you predicting a Hillary Landslide, wobbie.

    – Mine was a prediction that was shared, by the way, by the person who runs this website (we had the same EV vote). Are you going to mock him as well?

    Your statement was clearly something not supported by any facts. Do you even understand how one becomes the Chief Justice?

  635. Jonesy says:

    you are not worth it, robbie

  636. Mr.Vito says:

    “I guess he’s decided, if it’s ok for the president to do it (that’s the judgment of this comment section), so can he.”

    Chicken and the egg. Journalists been doing this for months, even years… then they pretend it’s Trump’s fault.

  637. Jonesy says:

    I really enjoyed your tweets before the GA-6 race, Wobbie.

    Remember the ones where the GOP insiders were predicting a Handel loss.

    Should I go back and look those up?

  638. Mr.Vito says:

    “Are you going to mock him as well?”

    Is he a journalist? That makes him untouchable. (Except we have mocked him… and we’re still here).

  639. Jonesy says:

    Since you voted for Hillary, who would she have appointed Chief Justice, if Roberts retired, Robbels?

  640. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    June 30, 2017 at 3:54 pm
    you are not worth it, Robbie

    – In other words, you don’t know. Now, you’ll quickly run off to Wikipedia in an effort to determine the process so as not to make yourself look as ignorant as your claim about Bork was.

  641. Mr.Vito says:

    Krugman furiously wrote that article after Trump’s tweet, I’m sure.

  642. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    June 30, 2017 at 3:58 pm
    Since you voted for Hillary, who would she have appointed Chief Justice, if Roberts retired, Robbels?

    – Ah, poor little baby. You got caught looking like a dunce so you resorted to the false idea I voted for Clinton. That’s pretty weak even for HHR.

  643. Mr.Vito says:

    Every Republican should simultaneously tweet Krugman to GFY.

    Let’s see how that goes over…

  644. Robbie says:

    Mr.Vito says:
    June 30, 2017 at 3:58 pm
    Krugman furiously wrote that article after Trump’s tweet, I’m sure.

    – The good thing is no one actually reads Paul Krugman outside of NYC and DC so it doesn’t really matter what he says.

  645. lisab says:

    the big issue for the dems in 2018 is they have a dozen senate seats they will need to defend

    and zero money to do it

    the literally have no warchest for senate, they are about a million under water

  646. Jonesy says:

    Robbie, wants you all to know that he predicted a moderate Hillary win on election day?

    But Janz , outed his Summer/early Fall predictions that were atrocious. He had Hillary winning Utah etc..

  647. Jonesy says:

    Wow. Judge blocks new Chicago Soda Tax

  648. Mr.Vito says:

    “The good thing is no one actually reads Paul Krugman outside of NYC and DC so it doesn’t really matter what he says.”

    Apologist.

  649. Trump says:

    What is the retard Robbie bellyaching about today?

  650. Robbie says:

    Mr.Vito says:
    June 30, 2017 at 4:01 pm
    Every Republican should simultaneously tweet Krugman to GFY.
    Let’s see how that goes over…

    – Why give him the time of day? Why draw attention to him? That’s the issue with Trump’s tweets. No need to draw attention to dumb stories or commentary when no one is even paying attention. If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?

  651. lisab says:

    and … the rnc is outraising 2 to 1!

  652. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    June 30, 2017 at 4:02 pm
    Robbie, wants you all to know that he predicted a moderate Hillary win on election day?
    But Janz , outed his Summer/early Fall predictions that were atrocious. He had Hillary winning Utah etc..

    – Your troll work is getting sloppy. Your handlers need to do better research. It was lisab, not janz, who pointed out that several of my earlier electoral college predictions showed a much bigger Clinton win than my final prediction issued on November 7, 2016. Nice try though.

  653. Mr.Vito says:

    I’m not in DC nor NYC. Why did I read it?

    Correction: every Republican should tell the New York Times to GFY for peddling this crap.

  654. lisab says:

    He had Hillary winning Utah etc..”
    ———————————-

    that was funny

  655. lisab says:

    yes, like ppp (D) robbie modified his prediction the day beofe the election so it would not be completely out of line with the election

  656. Mr.Vito says:

    My goodness republicans are pu$$ies. The NYT isn’t read outside DC… it’s okay if they call them innately cruel, evil and immoral.

  657. Jonesy says:

    Robbie you can insult me all you want, but you lost all credibility on your 2016 predictions. You can never spin that.

    680. spot on Lisa

  658. lisab says:

    shooting in ny hospital, shooter dead, at least 4 to 6 injured

  659. Jonesy says:

    677. Nice try deflecting the fact that you said Hillary would win Utah, Robbie. You say you did not vote for her? right

  660. Mr.Vito says:

    Robbie is more offended by someone questioning his reasoning on an obscure blog, than the ‘paper of record’ directly calling him evil.

  661. Jonesy says:

    670. Lisa, and McKaskill already lost in MO, basically.

    Heller is in a tough race, but Flake is a lock after the BB field Shooting.

    Who else is there for the Dems to beat?

  662. Robbie says:

    lisab says:
    June 30, 2017 at 4:08 pm
    yes, like ppp (D) robbie modified his prediction the day beofe the election so it would not be completely out of line with the election

    – I see lisab is back to her trope that people aren’t allowed to reassess predictions as the data changes. At least that’s better than her accusing me of being gay. Funny how that accusation emerged when it became clear she was unhappy with my views about Trump.

  663. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    June 30, 2017 at 4:09 pm
    Robbie you can insult me all you want, but you lost all credibility on your 2016 predictions. You can never spin that.
    680. spot on Lisa

    – And you lost all credibility with your moronic claim Bork would have eventually become Chief Justice had he been confirmed in 1987.

  664. Jonesy says:

    Vito, Krugman ,and all the other hacks at NYT, are just pissed off that they wont get a XMAS party invite to the White House.

    They are insecure radicals who want the limelight

  665. Jonesy says:

    688. Really Bork? LOL

  666. Robbie says:

    Mr.Vito says:
    June 30, 2017 at 4:12 pm
    Robbie is more offended by someone questioning his reasoning on an obscure blog, than the ‘paper of record’ directly calling him evil

    – If you want to be offended by something Paul Krugman writes, go right ahead. I just don’t see the reason why Republicans should shine a bright light on this story and vastly magnify the number of people who read it.

    By the same token, should Republicans get exorcised by the stupidity Keith Olberman spouts on his YouTube channel these days? It might eel good, but drawing attention to it only gives his drivel far more attention than it otherwise would have gotten.

  667. Mr.Vito says:

    “At least that’s better than her accusing me of being gay.”

    Why do you keep referring to thinking someone is gay as an accusation or attack?

    Join the 21st century.

  668. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    June 30, 2017 at 4:12 pm
    677. Nice try deflecting the fact that you said Hillary would win Utah, Robbie. You say you did not vote for her? right

    -Umm, I did not make that prediction in my final vote count. Again, your troll handlers need to do better research.

  669. Mr.Vito says:

    You’re going to compare Flash in the Pan Olbermann to a Nobel Prize economist published regularly in the New York Times?

  670. Mr.Vito says:

    I can’t take Robbie seriously anymore. He is a parody or a concern troll. lisab is right.

  671. Robbie says:

    Mr.Vito says:
    June 30, 2017 at 4:23 pm
    You’re going to compare Flash in the Pan Olbermann to a Nobel Prize economist published regularly in the New York Times?

    – I’m saying there’s no reason to give oxygen to a viewpoint that very few value. Is it leading the cable news channels? No. Is it being widely discussed in talk radio world? No. Is it driving the day on Twitter? No.

    It would be all those things, though, if Republicans decided to offer a coordinated pushback to a story no one is really discussing. It may feel good to hit back at every single story you don’t like, but it’s counterproductive.

  672. Cash Cow TM says:

    Well don’t you know that where he wanted to dig the two holes is EXACTLY where the remains of the former very big-assed 50 year old spruce tree trunks are located (they had them cut down last fall).

    Dig, dig, dig…use camp saw to cut out roots…use chain saw to work on cutting away big portion of the spruce stump…sweat, sweat, sweat…

    I kept having to splash cold milk in his face…

    HE DID NOT EVEN GET ONE HOLE COMPLETELY DUG!
    WORKED ALL DAY!
    (well, he rested a lot between work episodes.)

    I can’t take Robbie seriously anymore. He is a parody or a concern troll. lisab is right.

    – So you’re willing to go to war on an issue few, if any people, are discussing? Why? I don’t see the value in it. Why pick a fight and elevate something that’s just stupid?

  674. Mr.Vito says:

    “It would be all those things, though…”

    It is all those things. Turn one on. The entire media is calling you an immoral cruel idiot that wants to kill poor people to give rich people a tax cut. Wake up. You think this is a view few value? It’s gone mainstream in the NYT for crying out loud. It doesn’t make the news because it isn’t news anymore… it’s accepted. It’s true.

    And you want to take it laying down… what a hero.

  675. Cash Cow TM says:

    Also, Walt had to break out tools to make adjustments to the chain saw, mix up a batch of new gas/oil, had trouble getting it started again (and he never did get it going again)….

    Walt used words I have NEVER heard him used before….

    He was not happy when he came inside one time and I said “Oh, it looks like you got caught in the rain.”

    – Just to be clear, I’m talking specifically about Paul Krugman’s column. I’m not saying one side should unilaterally disarm. Obviously, there are times to fight. That said, it’s counterproductive to go to war every time someone writes a column or piece you don’t like. Pick and choose the battles wisely. If you’re always counterpunching, then you’re never doing much else.

    Gabby Morrongiello?
    @gabriellahope_ 32m
    32 minutes ago

    A source tells me Trump ran around the West Wing yesterday asking staff what they thought of his tweet & admitting it wasn’t presidential

  678. Wes says:

    Dems have two vulnerable GOP Senators to go after next year. At a minimum, Republicans have four. It’s next to impossible for Dems to regain the Senate next year, almost certainly out of the question for Republicans to lose seats, and a hughly likely outcome for Republicans to gain seats.

  679. Mr.Vito says:

    ” Obviously, there are times to fight. ”

    What are you waiting for? 20 dead congressmen?

  682. Mr.Vito says:

    Nearly had that, and they still don’t want to fight…

  683. Trump says:

    Fake news, retard.

    For one who claims to form his opinions, your every other post is somebody else’s tweet.

    Are you that insecure?

  684. Robbie says:

    What are you waiting for? 20 dead congressmen?

    – I realize this story has gotten you fired up, but it’s Paul Krugman. I haven’t seen the story retweeted in my timeline nor have I seen it discussed on cable news or Drudge today. That said, I’m not an avid cable news watchers.

    Republicans and conservatives said and wrote boatloads of terrible things about Obama. I even know of a guy who made his debut in Republican politics suggesting Barak Obama wasn’t born in America. Tough and even unfair coverage is part of the game.

  685. Trump says:

    Are you a mouthpiece for every unknown and insignificant tweeter, retard Robbie?

  686. Trump says:

    Now this moron retard is on a mission to defend all his fake news msm buddies.

  687. Mr.Vito says:

    I’m sure many did ‘admit’ it wasn’t presidential, just as most did here. It was Donald Trump being Donald Trump… but he’s the president warts and all. I really don’t care if he’s presidential in some spat between friends, the media, or vengeful lying libs. Be presidential with presidential matters.

  688. Robbie says:

    Trump says:
    June 30, 2017 at 4:45 pm
    Are you a mouthpiece for every unknown and insignificant tweeter, retard Robbie?

    – She’s the Washington bureau chief for the New York Post which happens to be one of the three papers Trump gets a hardcopy of every day.

  689. Mr.Vito says:

    705 “I realize this story has gotten you fired up”

    Not even close, as usual… the flippancy of your ilk has gotten me fired up. Pretending the NYT isn’t well read? Pretending these ideas aren’t mainstream? This particular story isn’t on Drudge… you kidding?

  690. Trump says:

    Retard, you have a fetish for unsourced tweets from insignificant losers.

    Suits you to a t. Moron.

  691. Mr.Vito says:

    The GOP can go home with their tails between their legs and listen to the screaming in their townhalls again.

    Maybe round 2 will wake them up…

  692. Mr.Vito says:

    You guys have the high ground here, and you just want to hand it over…

    oh, well, we don’t want them to say we’re killing people so we’ll just take it all back and go home.

  693. Jonesy says:

    Wes, would be nice if the Retire rumors for Heidetkamp in ND are true

    – Again, the NYT is big in NYC, DC, and a few other places, but the average Republican, the average Trump supporter, and the average Independent doesn’t pay a lick of attention to the NYT and especially to a columnist like Paul Krugman. I doubt even 1% of the population knows who Paul Krugman is and even less give a hoot what he thinks. Same goes for the other jerk they have whose name is Charles Blow.

  696. Mr.Vito says:

    Maybe the GOP is killing people… I’ll have to take another look at the bill. They sure don’t want to fight the notion.

  697. Mr.Vito says:

    No one reads the Times. BS. I have to read this crap in my own paper every week because the Times makes it mainstream.

  698. Jonesy says:

    Times is not the problem. It is USA Today. They have content in almost every local paper, and is all anti trump.

    At least AP was the first to call Trump’s win on election night, way before CNN and others

  699. Mr.Vito says:

    “… all anti trump.”

    I’m not even talking anti-Trump. I’m talking about dehumanizing the opposition, so that anything is justifiable.

  700. Mr.Vito says:

    Supposedly that’s not something to get fired up about… well if not, I think Trump is the least of anyone’s worries.

  701. Jonesy says:

    Vito, NYT has been doing that since the 1930’s. The Reporter that went to Soviet Russia, and lied about how great Stalin and the Communist Utopia was etc..

    They hate the opposition, because they hate Capitalism. Those 2 days after 9/11 was brutal for them, because they had to lay off Bush for that long.

  702. Mr.Vito says:

    722 Then I’m not going to entertain another word about Trump supposedly lowering the discourse.

  703. Phil says:

    Tell me Robbie, who the hell is Gabby Morrongiello and why is that in the least significant? Gabby has a source? Oh good, another anonymous source. Where have we seen that one before?

    – As I wrote in 709, she is the Washington bureau chief of the New York Post and that paper happens to be on the three papers Trump reads each morning in hardcopy form (NYT and WSJ are the other two). She previously worked for the Washington Examiner which is viewed as a center right paper.

    I’ve never turned into the show as it always seemed superficial and boring, and I doubt that will change in the near or far future.

    Did you want Merrick Garland in Scalia’s Seat?

  726. Jonesy says:

    I hope you are not typing in a cockpit, Robbie?

    George Will would not be happy

  727. Phil says:

    Robbie, Jason can speak for himself but from what I have read he is hardly anything like a Trump apologist. I think a lot of us can detect an MSM railroad job when we see it. Nothing but an attempted coup by CNN, the Washington Post, major networks, etc. Trump has tons of flaws and deserves criticism, but I have never seen a sitting president savaged like this. Way more than even W who the MSM hated. I grimace every time I see Trump tweet personal attacks from the WH wondering what he will say next, but this Russia business has been a croc from the beginning. The endless stories based on “anonymous sources” only to learn later it was all crap….it is pathetic and a lot of us have simply had it.

  728. Phil says:

    Glad to see Melania lay the wood to Mika. Trump should not have gone facelift on Mika, but the crap coming out of the mouths of these two MSNBC stooges would piss anyone off.

  729. Phil says:

    Tina, we don’t want to see Pelosi gone .. best thing Republicans have going in 2018.

  730. Wes says:

    MD, Author, and their fellow Democrats–yes, I can safely say MD and Author have gone over to the Left now–have been predicting Dems will win big next year, but I see no evidence of it. For all his flaws, Trump relishes hitting back at the Dems and their allies in the media whenever attacked.

    That has actually caused Republicans to rally around lackluster candidates such as Gianforte and Handel while Dems have undermined their own momentum consistently with wall-to-wall negativism and spurious, invariably debunked accusations that Trump haws been engaging in shady dealings with America’s enemies.

    Because of this, the Dems never seem to get ahead. To be a reasonable alternative to the Trump-led GOP precisely because of the absolute dearth of anything positive or constructive on their part.

    Thus, I expect 2018 to be at worst another 1970 for the GOP. Nothing–literally nothing–on the Dem side indicates the Left has formulated a successful campaign strategy for 2018.

  731. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:

    749. Considering you wanted Hillary to Win, Robbie.
    Did you want Merrick Garland in Scalia’s Seat?

    – Still going with the pathetic comeback that I wanted Hillary to win, huh?

  732. Wes says:

    For decades, Dems were electorally successful by the perennial strategy of demonizing literally every Republican as a diabolical monster eager to destroy all old people, non-whites, gays, and poor people.

    Such a strategy can’t be successful forever as Americans have become apathetic to the Left’s endless demgoguery. When Dems lost anything new to say and therefore any ability to connect with people on a personal level because of non-stop rabid hyerbolic attacks, they lost significant ground.

    They will regain none and never start winning en masse again until they craft a positive, forward-thinking agenda and cast themselves as a legitimate alternative to the GOP rather than an easily offended, purely bellicose rabble of bombthrowers and spewers of caustic invective.

  733. Robbie says:

    Phil

    The media hates Republicans. We all get that, but their power is vastly overrated. Otherwise, how did Trump win? For that matter, how did Reagan, Bush I, and Bush II win when the media hated them? National candidates rise and fall based on their political skills and the strength of the economy.

    As for anonymous sources, you may not like them right now, but it’s the way reporting works. Even the Trump White House uses anonymous sources to get their version of events out.

  734. Wes says:

    Unlike GWB, Trump has proved to be a latter-day Ronald Reagan or Teddy Roosevelt, using the bully pulpit as Roosevelt called it to speak directly to Americans and obviate the hostility endemic in the media to all Republicans whether conservative or otherwise.

    It’s one thing to be a loyal opposition. All Presidents will have such a thing. It’s quite another to be 100% committed to brutalizing and dehumanizing the opposition. This sordid strategy by the Left has had the effect of inuring voters to their message and rendering their strategy of mindless savagery and deominzation of an entire political party ineffective.

    Ironically, Tina, Scarborough was a Gingrich-era Republican who publicly explained how the GOP lost its way on spending in the late ’90s and under Bush. He actually said Republicans deviated from the principles they espoused to win in 1994.

    Having his own show on MSNBC has apparently changed him, however, into a shill for leftist demagoguery and invective.

  745. Wes says:

    Dems started losing ground on Wall Street after they embraced that Occupy Wall Street farce, Jonesy. Obama received 60% of Wall Street money in 2008 but nowhere near that when facing Romney. By alienating business interests previously friendly to them and vociferously savaging whites, Dems created a backlash among voters and donors they have yet to recover from.

    Robbie says:

    My current electoral vote count has Clinton winning 374-164. Here’s how I get there:

    – Clinton wins all of the Obama 2012 states
    – Clinton snags GA, AR, and NC
    – Clinton wins 1 electoral vote from NE
    – Trump wins 1 electoral vote from ME

    Obviously, this can change in the last three weeks, but my May 5 map had it 384-154 for Clinton. I thought she might win MO as well.

    If the map does change, I expect it to more further in Clinton’s direction. Trump could easily lose UT and, given that ID is a lot like UT, maybe ID is an election day surprise. Also, IN is no gimmie for Trump. He’ll probably win there, but it’s not the ruby red state most assume.

    I too have heard the numbers you cited, as being in the millions nationally, regarding illegal voting tallies. However, proving this is difficult to do. The best concrete evidence would be what the administration is attempting to do, by creating a legitimacy in the existing voter registration roles.

    Chicon, I analogize GA-6 to the 2010 MA special Scott Brown won….

    Had Coakley been a better candidate, Brown likely would have made it close but still lost. As it was, an extraordinary perfect storm of events let Brown beat Coakley.

    A similar perfect storm would be needed for Ossoff to win. If that were to happen, then Dems would have momentum they currently lack going into 2018

    may to mid october: hillary 384 electoral votes

    robbie (D) mid october to nov 7
    My current electoral vote count has Clinton winning 374-164. Here’s how I get there:

    – Clinton wins all of the Obama 2012 states
    – Clinton snags GA, AR, and NC
    – Clinton wins 1 electoral vote from NE
    – Trump wins 1 electoral vote from ME

    Obviously, this can change in the last three weeks, but my May 5 map had it 384-154 for Clinton. I thought she might win MO as well.

    If the map does change, I expect it to more further in Clinton’s direction. Trump could easily lose UT and, given that ID is a lot like UT, maybe ID is an election day surprise. Also, IN is no gimmie for Trump. He’ll probably win there, but it’s not the ruby red state most assume.

    This time, the Associated Press invented an imaginary meeting between EPA administrator Scott Pruitt and Dow Chemical CEO Andrew Liveris, and then alleged that some kind of impropriety happened as a result.

    This is exactly the same mistake CNN made a week ago, when it alleged that Anthony Scaramucci—the founder of SkyBridge Capital and an associate and ally of President Donald Trump—held “meetings” with Russian investment fund leaders and was under investigation by the Senate Intelligence Committee and Treasury Department as a result.

    A Breitbart News investigation uncovered that no such “meetings” took place, the Senate Intelligence Committee was not investigating the matter, and the Treasury Department had already—at the urging of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) to now Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin before Trump’s inauguration—looked into it and determined the matter to be entirely “without merit.”

    The very fake news scandal that is consuming CNN right now is the biggest scandal in the network’s history, and comes as media D.C.-wide find themselves under intense scrutiny amid a litany of industry mistakes.

    He won’t run again in 2020 at 75 yrs of age and if he did I doubt seriously he would get reelected. All in all we got about as much out of this guy as we could and that is fine with me. He prevented Obama from having Hillary solidify Obama’s changing America objective. I’ll take that.

    I just don’t see a second term. If Dems get control of the House they will impeach him. Can’t remove him but with impeachment hanging over him every day for his last two years he’ll be fed up at that point and just say F it.

    That is so old fashioned. Bernie needed to set up the “Bernie Foundation”. Then collect tens of millions of dollars from progressive tech billionaires, who you make sure are exempt from any of the increased taxation you are proposing.

    Worked for Clinton and Obama. Have you noticed Obama has spent the past six months frolicking with his billionaire friends in vacation spots around the world? The joys of progressive politics. And saps like Obamacon fall for it.

    I think Trump is enjoying himself. He has always been a publicity hound. Plus, his base is still behind him, when he goes to rallies they are all fired up and supportive. Trump especially enjoys ruffling the feathers of the pigeons. The liberal media takes his tweets seriously; his supporters enjoy them and see them as mischievousness. He is purposely baiting his opponents to stir them up.

  821. Phil says:

    If Trump runs for re-election, see the race as competitive. Trump has alienated a lot of people, and there may be a high Democratic turnout this time.

    However, the Democrats have to have a good candidate, and at this point am not seeing one. How are they going to reconcile the Sanders and Clinton wings of the party? Will the tech money barons accept someone pushing the Sanders agenda? If the economy is good, will people want to risk it for leftist policies?

    but … he was up against a very bad candidate last time who many people disliked (including many dems), and she came close to winning.

    if the candidate is hillary again, or bernie or warren, i think trump wins. almost anyone else i think gives him a very difficult time

    EVEN

    assuming many voter rolls are purged of illegals and duplicates.

    i just think the gop establishment would MUCH rather have a democrat win than trump, especially if trump gets to replace ginsberg, kennedy and one other. there is basically no reason for the gope to not let the dem win if scotus seats are secured.

    Republicans won. Elections have consequences.

    I’ll add this response to the newspaper of record idiocy:

    Wow, you really are an idiot.

    Nobody has stated more times here that I don’t consider Trump a Republicans.

    The difference between us is that instead of blindly attacking him on everything because my candidate didn’t win (you) I choose to accept he won and will support him where I think he is right and oppose him where I think he is wrong.

    And in his war with the MSM, I think he is right.

    Any luck finding Jeb’s real killer yet?

  865. jason says:

    I don’t even predict Trump will win the war with the MSM. It’s entirely possible the fake journolists will prevail, they still have a lot of power to brainwash morons like Wobbie.

    He may well lose, but my point is that he really has no choice but to fight back. Surrendering the narrative to the MSM is suicide.

  866. jason says:

    And btw Wobbie’s suggestion that if Trump surrenders to the MSM they will drop their attacks on him is as stupid as Rand Paul’s theory that terrorists will be nice to us if we leave them alone.

    Are you serious?

    You obviously don’t know Trump. His entire ambition in life has been about garnering and being the focal point of attention. He has now obtained the pinnacle of success and fame. He is the most important, powerful, consequential, and FAMOUS person in the world. He has millions of loyal and adoring supporters. A single tweet by him can changed the discourse of history.

    Trump is the happiest person in the world right now. He’s not giving that up.

  868. JC says:

    http://news.iheart.com/onair/rush-limbaugh-55812/after-two-years-of-attacks-trumps-15919222/

    For two years, the past two years, not just since Trump was elected and not just since Trump got the nomination, for the past two years the entire media-Democrat complex, and for a period of this you have to include the Republicans in it — in fact, you might still say the Republicans are part of this complex that has spent millions of dollars and countless hours to investigate Donald Trump. They have turned over every rock. They have dug as deep as they can. They have used anonymous sources from the deep state. They have made things up. They have even gone so far as to destroy the credibility of their own industries by creating fake news in their effort to get rid of Donald Trump, to produce some information. Some damning evidence of a crime that would have enabled them, A, to deny him the nomination. And after that failed, then to deny him the election. And then after that failed, then to deny him being inaugurated. And then after that failed, now to try to force him out of office. To the media-political complex, which we would have is to say includes Hollywood and publishing, and of course the media and much of entertainment pop culture, Donald Trump is a nightmare who has come to life. He is a Frankenstein. He is a monster. He is, in their minds, everything they say they detest about human beings. The left is not crazy about human beings to begin with. And I don’t say that to try to be funny, or I’m not even exaggerating. They think that many of the problems that exist on planet Earth would not exist if human beings were extinct. So their starting point is to be angry and enraged constantly and to blame human beings. And in the process they create all these negative characteristics about human beings that they blame and detest. Donald Trump has them all.

    In their mind, Donald Trump epitomizes, he encompasses every horrible, rotten, despicable characteristic of human beings. And he beat them. He won the most powerful office in the land. As such, not only did Donald Trump become the president, Donald Trump became the biggest star in the United States. He’s also a star, folks. Do not think that he’s just the president. He is a star. He’s the biggest star. Stars are not always universally loved. Trump loves being a star, by the way. It’s one of his earliest objectives, and he has accomplished reaching the pinnacle of stardom. The pinnacle of stardom would be name recognition and everybody in addition to knowing who you are, having an opinion of you. To be obsessed with you, to be consumed by you, Donald Trump has achieved all of this and more by defeating a large group of professionals who hate him, who despise him, who have used every weapon in their arsenal to destroy him. And they have failed. To date, they have failed. Trump has become bigger than they ever imagined. Trump has become bigger than they ever thought they could be. They resent and despise and hate Donald Trump for a multitude of reasons. And all they know is, they have to get rid of him. Short of that, they have to destroy the stardom aspect. They certainly cannot permit the political identity and ideas of Donald Trump to triumph. Donald Trump must be destroyed simply because he’s there. Donald Trump has to be taken out. He has to be destroyed and ruined politically and, if they can, financially. Make no mistake that that’s an objective too. You can read between the lines the latest leaks of the highly respected and immensely respected Robert Mueller, the independent counsel, going after Trump’s money, going after Jared Kushner. They are not going to leave one stone unturned in their effort to demolish, to ruin, to destroy Donald Trump. They want to obliterate the star. They want to create a figure of great shame and embarrassment, and they want to take away from him all of his achievements, including his money. You might think this sounds irrational. You’re right; it is. It is entirely irrational. This degree of hate is irrational. It’s unnatural. The fact that they stick with it and maintain it is destroying them.

    He may well lose, but my point is that he really has no choice but to fight back. Surrendering the narrative to the MSM is suicide.
    ——————–

    I spent years defending President Bush during his second term. Then one day I saw an interview that caused me to become so irritated at him that I stopped supporting him all together. I forgot where/when the interview happened (it was after the 2006 mid-terms), or even what the question/response precisely was. I just remembered some lady asked an insanely skewed ‘question’ that was actually a democratic smear (something about hurting minorities). And instead of fighting back, Bush’s response was something like taking the ‘high road’ against those smears.

    And I’m sitting on the couch furious that he didn’t even bother to set the record straight and just let the media define him. I remember fuming, because I know that the next day’s headlines would be ‘Bush refuses to respond to minority backlash’ or something.

    And that’s when I started thinking to myself – If this fool won’t even defend himself then why should I?

    As you said, maybe Trump will lose that battle. But I suspect that even in that scenario, his presidency is the first battle in a long war – and Trump is setting the precedent on how to engage and defeat the establishment media. He’s practically writing the book on how to define the narrative in our favor, and in the process he’s turning the media’s most lethal weapon against them.

    Think about it. The terms ‘deep state’, ‘fake news’, and now ‘fraud news’ have become standard phrases in the American lexicon. Conservatives have always known this, but lets face it, the vast majority of people are low-info voters who do not care or understand how the media twists and generates news to create a false narrative.

    Win or lose, he’s already branded the democratic media complex as nothing more than the propaganda arm of the dem party.

    And btw Wobbie’s suggestion that if Trump surrenders to the MSM they will drop their attacks on him is as stupid as Rand Paul’s theory that terrorists will be nice to us if we leave them alone.

    – Wow. Now, that’s lie. I never said if Trump stops fighting the media, the media will back off him. I have said and will continue to say, if Trump stops with these senseless press battles and focuses on the agenda he was elected to enact, the press attacks on him will look small and like a waste of time. The public will say Trump is focused on policy and the press is whiny. Instead, Trump just continues to feed the beast while almost totally ignoring the agenda he was elected to enact.

  878. Robbie says:

    If Barak Obama had tweeted a video of him body slamming someone with a FoxNews logo where the person’s head was, the conservative press (talk radio, blogs, FoxNews itself) would rightly be outraged. Instead, not much happening.

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/byron-york-the-price-of-fighting-with-trump/article/2627643

    People who get into fights with Donald Trump often end up diminished by it.

    Just ask Marco Rubio, who in February 2016 broke some sort of ground when he introduced the “small hands” attack into presidential politics. “And you know what they say about guys with small hands,” Rubio told crowds during the days he decided to transform himself from GOP contender into anti-Trump insult comic. A few weeks later, Rubio expressed regret about the “small hands” routine. “My kids were embarrassed by it, and if I had it to do again, I wouldn’t,” Rubio said.

    Just ask Jeb Bush, who allowed himself to be drawn into brawls with Trump — brawls which there was no chance Bush, no match for Trump’s insults, would win.

    Just ask Ted Cruz, who made an informal peace with Trump for much of the campaign, then fought Trump in the final primaries, and finally released a campaign’s worth of anger and bile at Trump just hours before the Indiana primary vote that knocked Cruz out of the race. Now, as a senator, Cruz has to work with, and support the policies of, the man who so got under his skin.

    Of course, Rubio, Bush, and Cruz — and Carson, Christie, Fiorina, Paul, Kasich, Jindal, and others — had an excuse; they were running against Trump for the Republican presidential nomination. But others have tangled with Trump and found themselves diminished, too.

    Just ask some of the more strident NeverTrumpers who have allowed Trump to live rent-free in their heads. Today, some are serious people doing non-serious things — I bought a pair of socks at Nordstrom! — because of a reflexive opposition to Trump.

    Just ask CNN, which, in addition to its news reporting, has taken on what appears to be a network-wide air of snarkiness in its Trump coverage. That oppositional tone has raised the stakes for CNN when its journalists make mistakes, as they have recently. Yes, CNN’s ratings have gone up, but its reputation has taken a hit. “Trump is indeed destroying CNN…by tempting them to destroy themselves,” tweeted writer and former Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro recently.

    And now ask Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, the TV hosts who once sang Trump’s praises and were openly friendly with the presidential candidate but now bash and insult him daily. (“They’ve said he has dementia,” RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel noted recently. “They’ve said he’s stupid. They’ve called him a goon. They’ve called him a thug. They’ve said he’s mentally ill.”)

    Scarborough and Brzezinski are engaged in a back-and-forth with Trump over…what? A facelift? Hand size? Who said what to whom? The argument, which appears to have started Thursday with Brzezinski’s needling of Trump’s hand size (“They’re teensy!”) took a turn when Scarborough and Brzezinski wrote in a Washington Post op-ed (“Donald Trump is not well”) that, “This year, top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the president to have the story spiked. We ignored their desperate pleas.” TrumpWorld sources are telling some (decidedly not-in-the-tank) reporters a very different version of events, which suggests Scarborough and Brzezinski will be pulled into a he-said-they-said fight that is far different from the one they wanted.

    Does anyone think that, by any measure other than notoriety, this episode will not diminish Scarborough and Brzezinski? . . .

    Of course one could say that Trump is at fault, that he regularly engages in spats that are beneath the dignity of the presidency. He should not, for example, respond in kind to “small hands” jabs. But Trump is Trump. He does what he does, which is what he did during the campaign and before. And now, in the White House, he has enlisted his media adversaries, wittingly or not, in a campaign against “fake news” that resonates with his core supporters.

    “They like him, they believe in him, they have not to any large degree been shaken from him, and the more the media attacks him, the more it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy on the side of the Trump supporters who fervently believe the media treat him unfairly,” Tony Fabrizio, Trump’s campaign pollster, told the Washington Post.

  881. JC says:

    From Instapundit comments:

    The GOP is like our military under Obama where the rules of engagement were so restricted making it impossible to win. Trump tossed those rules and we who support him say its about damn time. The Progs are a political ISIS. To beat them we gotta get down and dirty and make them pay. Every time. And when they scream and whine consider it the sound of victory.

  882. Tina says:

    Another advantage to calling out the media and creating feuds with specific people (or organizations) is that he ‘muddies the water’.

    A reporter, journalist, or anchor may get away with smearing Trump under the guise of being ‘independent’. But once they gets in a spat with Trump, then everything that person says from now on becomes suspect.

    That person can no longer be seen as independent or fair. How could they, when they are in a public feud with the person they are covering?

    It doesn’t matter which side you choose. That fact that said person or organization had a feud with Trump will make any criticism of him in the future far less potent.

    If the economy is strong next year, Republicans will retain the House. (The Senate is too overburdened with Democrats in the Class 1 seats to be a realistic prospect for a flip.) Similarly if the economy is strong in 2020, Trump will win reelection.

    By contrast, Republicans will suffer at the ballot box if the economy is weak either election.

    Of course Obama and FDR won reelection with weak economies, but each had inherited the economic downturn from his predecessor. However, Obama saw an across-the-board decrease in support in 2012 and had the third weakest reelection showing after Woodrow Wilson and GWB of any President in history, suggesting while Americans weren’t ready to throw him out of office yet, they were not thrilled with his Administration. That became more apparent in 2014 and 2016 when Dems first took a massive beating in the midterms and then failed to either regain Congress or hold the White House in the presidential year.

    Had Obama done half of what Trump has done so far, Tina, especially, would be leading the charge for impeachment proceedings to begin. And if Ryan and McConnell had balked at the idea, she would be attacking them mercilessly as cucks and RINOs.

    As for the tweets themselves, I pay attention to them because they are official presidential statements. If you don’t believe me, then why did the White House direct House and Senate investigators to Trump’s tweets saying he had no tapes of Comey?

    The Aztecs were brutal murderers, far beyond anything ISIS has ever done. The Aztecs used to slaughter thousands in religious rituals by cutting out their beating hearts while they were alive. They use to engage in wars against friendly tribes to get more sacrificial victims.

    A tiny number of Spanish conquistadors were able to conquer the Aztecs because a massive army of other Indian allied with them, and looked upon them as liberators. To be politically incorrect, the arrive of the Spanish in Mexico, despite their harsh and tyrannical rule, on the whole benefited most the indigenous population. The Aztecs were that bad of monsters.

    “Ninety-five percent of America cares as much about the battle between Trump and the media as they do cricket scores,” the NBA owner said.

    Still, Cuban, a critic of Trump who supported Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign, doesn’t think the media does enough to understand how the president is trying to “deflect” attention from his legislative agenda.

    “The media needs to learn that Trump is like any CEO—he will deflect and misdirect. It’s time to start talking to the people who go to work every day and find out what is going on in their lives,” Cuban said.

    969. “– Unless his behavior changes, he will get a primary challenger. The quality is yet to be determined.”
    Really Robbie! Trump’s approval rating is 80% among Republicans, and he is going to get a primary challenger. You really believe this?

    – Absolutely, I believe this. If Trump goes into the 2020 process with a national approval rating around 35-40%, someone (maybe not a top flight challenger) will enter the primary. Even Buchanan challenged Bush 41 in 1992. John Kasich has already started to camp out in New Hampshire.

    And while Trump has an 80% approval rating with Republicans now, there’s no guarantee that will be the case after another two years or so of this nonsense. On top of that, how many of the 80% today who approve of Trump are doing so simply out of party loyalty?

    But you know, the drats are better and trump was married five times.

    – No, he has not. If Trump had lowered the national debt by $100 million, then why is he asking the Congress to raise the debt ceiling by about $2 trillion?

    And don’t confuse a projection for a budget deficit with the accumulated national debt. They are different things.

    It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you’re off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.

    – NYCMike, please don’t ignore this. Here’s what I have learned. Trump remains unqualified, incompetent, and unfit for the office he holds.

    Yes, he picked Gorsuch (actually, Pence did), but even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then. Enjoy the pick though because it’s quite possible he will be the only substantive accomplishment in 2017.

    Now, go back to your Dick Mourdock happy place.

Then he would stop every time about Sanders wife they say at least once if not 2 or 3 times there is no evideance or charges. Do they say the same about President Trump and they have been told but want people to think he’s done something.

  1024. Tina says:

    Hillary woukd not have cut regularions, or appoimted gorsuch.

    The bushes are not conservatives.

  1025. Robbie says:

    The fact remains. If Obama had gone on Twitter and attacked conservative journalists as he did Mika or mocked FoxNews in a video as Trump did CNN, this comment section would have rightly demanded the Republican Congress begin impeachment proceedings.

    If Obama had fired the FBI leader who was looking into some aspect of his 2012 campaign and then gone on NBC and said he fired the person specifically because of that issue, this comment section would have rightly demanded the Republican Congress begin impeachment proceedings.

    If Obama had accused GWB of wiretapping him without any evidence and called him sick in a tweet, this comment section would have right demanded the Republican Congress begin impeachment proceedings.

    But because Trump has an R next to his name, many (not all) in this comment section think crass, erratic, and even buffoonish behavior is fine.

    I am not aware of any Dems being official bundles for GOP presidential candidates.

    If he continues to knock down the media with these theatrics, I’ll give him a pass. Congress needs to get their act together so that proper conservative-oriented legislation can be signed into law.

  1138. Redmen4ever says:

    This is my third and final comment on coal:

    We have BOTH coal and oil & gas. For coal plants located in the vicinity of oil & gas fields, it is economically feasible to sequestrate CO2 from the coal plants by using it to frack the oil & gas fields. Increased output from the fracked oil and gas fields will pay for the sequestration.

    We CAN BE an energy powerhouse WHILE reducing our emissions of CO2.

    In contrast, China and India have coal, but no oil & gas. The Arabs have oil, but no coal. And the Europeans have neither.

  1139. Barrett says:

    I think I’m going to nickname Trump “President SafeSpace”

    I’ve never met an individual who has thinner skin than this man. And I come from Maryland, where a lot of people get offended very easily.

    If this guy wants my respect, he’s going to have to learn to let criticism roll off of his shoulders. It’s what a more qualified president would do.

  1140. Trump says:

    Simple fact , Barrett. Trump doesn’t care for your respect. Or any other feelings.

  1141. Barrett says:

    That’s exactly his problem. He doesn’t command anyone’s respect. It used to be that the Chief Executive had some degree of leverage over congress. Trump has very little – otherwise healthcare and tax reform would have already passed.

    I don’t disagree with the Republican brand – never have. But just like a good number of congressional republicans, I’m left shaking my head at what this guy says. He’s really unbelievable.

  1142. Trump says:

    Yet he is president, and they are not.

    Unbelievable.

  1143. Barrett says:

    You’re not president either, so that’s really a moot point.

    I will give him credit where it is due. We do have a good supreme court justice in Neil Gorsuch, and we do have a strong energy sector. That’s about it though.

  1144. Barrett says:

    Anyways, he’s lost my vote as an independent. I hope they run a better candidate. I’m sure soccer moron will pick apart my comments for the rest of the day. I respect most other posters here – but Trump is a petty man. Enjoy the rest of your day.

  1145. Trump says:

  1150. Robbie says:

    Could AG Hawley win in 2018 against McCaskill? Sure. But Wagner has been gearing up for this race for some time. Her fundraising was at a Senate race level.

    Wagner, and similar, don’t want to run because they have no message.

    Repeal Obamacare is finished as a rallying cry.

  1153. Redmen4ever says:

    There are a lot of things to like about the WSJ/NBC poll. But if you take it seriously, you’ve got to congratulate Donald Trump on pulling off one of the greatest come from behind victory in electoral history. At least comparable to Harry Truman’s, in 1948.

    WSJ/NBC pre-election polls of 2016

    11/3-5 Hillary 44 Trump 40 Johnson 6 Stein 2
    10/10-13 Hillary 48 Trump 37 Johnson 7 Stein 2

    At some point, we will actually start re-examining the polls of last year as though they had some clues as to what was going on.

  1154. jason says:

    The national polls were not that far off, not talking about the exits.

    On the RCP average Hillary had about a 3 point national lead, and she “won” that by 2.

    The problem was the distribution of the vote. As I with great prescience (takes bow) pointed out several times in the last week, a national lead of 2 points meant Hillary would squander a lot of votes in CA and NY, and the rest of the country would be much more competitive.

    The state polls for MI, PA and WI were way off, however. OH and IA too, although most had Trump ahead, he won them by much more than the polls showed.

    Your claiming to be a Trump supporter, but opposing him on one of his major campaign promises, which he is trying to get done. There is not a problem with you taking an independent position on the issue, but you should not be using Trump’s name.

    I always defer to Wes on Senate races, but some of these people passing is not a omen.

    Meehan would not beat Casey anyways. Tester and Casey are tough incumbents.

    Wishful thinking by the MSM, regurgitated by Wobbie.

    – Duffy, Meehan, Fox, and even LePage have all taken passes on what should have been toss-up or lean Republican races. And now Wagner has passed as well after having geared up for the race for a year or more. Had Akin smartly dropped out in 2012, Wagner was poised to get on the ballot and she would have pasted McCaskill.

    They recognize the headwinds of running in a presidential midterm when the president from their party is mired with low job approval numbers. Maybe Trump’s approval rating will be higher on election day next year, but his quick decline to 40% came just as candidate recruitment reached its high point and it has scared several off.

    I guarantee you if Trump’s approval rating was 50-55%, each of these candidates would have run. But sure, blame it on your new boogey man, the MSM.

  1166. Jonesy says:

    That said, I do support the Republican Party and want to see it succeed in the age of Trump. I would also like to get to a place where I could support Trump, but he continues to make that difficult. The sooner he figures out he’s no longer a reality TV star tweeting from Trump Tower, the better.

    Poor, poor, Jonesy.

    In 2014, I wrote in early July Republicans were in great position to pick up 9 Senate seats. Ultimately, I predicted a 7 seat gain. I thought Tillis and Roberts would come up short since neither had been strong in any of the polling over the last month of the race. I believe I also suggested Republicans would increase their House total to around 245, but I always pointed out that prediction was based more on political reporting than a race-by-race survey.

    In 2014 there was a huge doom and gloom on many sites, when GOP Rep Latham of Iowa decided not run for the Harkin Open Senate Seat. Ernst was considered 3rd tier at best, and she ended up beating a Dem Rep.

    3rd tier recruit with no scandals would be McKaskill in 2018. She voted for Obamacare and Gorsuch

  1200. Jonesy says:

    Tina, it still amazes me how arrogant the Bush Family really is. To run a 3rd Bush in less than 25 years was just pathetic. I thought Jeb was a good Governor, but America did not want endless talk of the Iraq war etc…

    I always defer to Wes on Senate races, but some of these people passing is not a omen.

    Meehan would not beat Casey anyways. Tester and Casey are tough incumbents.

    Hawley won statewide, and Wagner is a soft Establishment type. She wants a House Chairmanship.

    Heller retiring would be a omen though. Heidtkamp is in bad shape in ND

    Is that because of demographics or is a top tier candidate challenging her. Read a little about the guy taking on Manchin – where is that race ?

  1216. Trump says:

    SanDiegocitizen,

    Maybe if did not have English comprehension problem, you’d understand.

    I said “repeal Obamacare” in the context of 2018 races, and specifically Ann Wagner.

    “Repeal Obamacare” is dead as a rallying cry and a fundraising tool for any GOP candidate.

    no GOP candidate in 2018 will have any credibility of using Obamacare repeal as their message. They would be laughed out of the race in a nanosecond.

    All GOP congress critters used the chest-thumping repeal Obamacare cry in 2010-16 cycles. Won’t work anymore, since they own all glover meet levers and still can’t deliver.

    The so-called top tier of GOP potentials are bailing out because, having failed to deliver on its promises despite controlling all branches of government, the GOP congress has no message to take to the voters in 2018.

  1217. Trump says:

    Broken promises is not an effective recruiting tool.

  1218. Trump says:

    Also, keep in mind that trump does not suffer from failure to pass Obamacare repeal.

    He will point to the failure of GOP congress to get him a bill.

    Who will Ryan and McConnell point to?

    As this morning’s article attested, the GOP voters are blaming GOP congress for failure and inaction, not Trump.

    Slouching towards minority status.

    The only positive for GOP is that it will be running against Dems. The reverse is also the only positive for the Dems.

  1219. Trump says:

    They thumped their chests for 7 years, promising to repeal Obamacare the first chance they got.

    What were they doing, jerking each other off?

    1239. I would like to see Lisa verify these so called predictions first Robbie.
    ——————————————

    well first we should recap that in 2014 gained 9 seats.

    robbie says that he predicted, “In 2014, I wrote in early July Republicans were in great position to pick up 9 Senate seats. Ultimately, I predicted a 7 seat gain. “

  1238. lisab says:

    Jonesy,

    so what we would expect is that robbie (D) would drop to a lower number in october before jumping up to +7 just before the election … and indeed that is what we find.

    in early october robbie (D) was +7

    he then went to “no wave” which he defined as not like 2010, where the reps were +6

    by mid to late octover he was at “a small wave” which he defined as,

    “Robbie says:
    I’ve been of the belief there will be a small wave, maybe something like 2002, but the current results from GA Senate, a few other Senate races, and some of the governor’s races certainly give me pause.”

    in 2002 the reps won 4 seats. so for most of october he was at r +4

  1239. lisab says:

    robbie (D) culminated in late october with,
    ————————————-

    There is no wave for the Republicans, maybe no momentum according to 538, and the fact so many of these races remain close is evidence Democrats are successfully fighting against the tide. On top of that, the main talking point seems to be Democrats are much closer to holding on to the Senate than previously thought due in large part to GOTV efforts and the poor Republican brand.

    My take is the models suggesting 70% or better odds are probably a little too optimistic, but I also think it’s important to note these Democrat incumbents just can’t get past 45%. To me that’s big. If they were closer to 47% as Obama was in 2012, I’d be a lot more concerned though. Fortunately, they’re not.

    AK, IA, CO, and KS are still nail biters in my view. Republicans seem to be ahead in at least three races, but I think these states are where Democrats and the press are attempting to find their optimism.

  1240. lisab says:

    however, again being robbie (D), like ppp (D) his last call has to be more realistic, so he did in fact end with R +7

    the senate went r +9

    as an amusing side note, he concerned trolled mitch mcconnell all october

    mcconnell won 56.2%–40.7% his second best showing evah …

    robbie (D) had it uncomfortably close.

  1241. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1265. “That reminds me, there is a Utah special election coming up soon. I think it is a close race, and Dems should spend $25-50m to take this seat.”

    Totally agree — and Bernie and Pelosi need to campaign in person. Together they can barnstorm the district, and raise and spend millions. Google & Facebook liberals needs to pour a fortune into the race; after all it contains the Silicon Hills of Utah where a tech industry is growing rapidly.

    A minor issue may be that Utah district three is one of the most conservative in the nation. It voted 73.3% to 26.7% for Chaffetz, and I would not consider him a strong candidate. Provo Mayor Curtis is respected and might get some votes from people who would not vote for Chaffetz. Utah County dominates the district, which is heavily Mormon (about 90%). Chaffetz carried Utah County by 82.4%.

    To there credit, the Democrats did not pick an eccentric candidate like the naked troubadour in Montana. They picked a physician who really comes across an a nice person. Some of her statements on her campaign website are a bit unique:

    “Critical thinking skills should be taught from an early age. Children should be exposed to music and other arts. Studies show that exposure to music enhances intellectual development.”

    “We can nurture ideas and bring them to fruition just as we nurture our families. Our collective wisdom needs to be outed. Studies show that a critical mass of 3 women in a group of 10 can alter the “group-think,” allowing breakthroughs that lead to creative solutions.”

    This is a certain Republican victory; its more important in my view how the campaign is conducted. Am hoping it is a very civil and polite campaign, where the candidates respect and are polite and to each other. It would be nice to take a break from the insane politics that dominates most of the nation now.

  1242. Jonesy says:

    Thanks Lisa for the info on wobbie.

    His defense is always what he predicted on Election day is closer to the result, like PPP and the other MSM hacks.

    But his predictions even a month out are just awful.

    He goes full doom 16 months out from 2018, due to soft GOPe candidates like Ann Wagner taking a pass in MO.

  1243. Jonesy says:

    Good riddance to Chaffetz, another GOP chair with no spine.

    Hope he likes living in NYC working for Faux news

  1244. Jonesy says:

    SD and Lisa. Happy 4th

    With the exception of Walt and Jul, nobody at HHR has actually had to cast a vote on a bill or government budget. Nobody here has worked as a journalist. Yet, almost everybody here knows they would be better at those jobs.

  1280. Bitterlaw says:

    I bet sad, selfish Trump does not volunteer or help anybody except his own bank account.

    That’s the limit of your thinking, moron.

    Project much?

  1282. Bitterlaw says:

    Do you know what project means? I volunteer hundreds of hours per year.

  1283. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Bitter and Trump
    My “salary” is $100/mo., not much of a money-taker. I walk around with a sandwich board that says, “Please Corrupt Me”. So far in five years, there have been no takers!

  1284. Trump says:

    You don’t know what project means, moron? Look it up in a dictionary (if you know how to). There are different definitions.

    Project: extend outward beyond something else.

    Don’t bother, it will only confuse you.

    I have been here 13 years, Trump. You are a below-average troll. Kwame, Chekote, Keybored and even IP 727 were more worthy of our time.
