  1. Just Fill Out The Census says:

    The Republicans are getting so pathetic and weak.

  2. Tina says:

    Come on gillepsie.

  3. Tina says:

    Manu Raju @mkraju
    Kushner team put out word he would be in there no longer than two hours; he’s been meeting with Senate Intel staff for at least 135 mins

    And this is news?

  4. San Diego Citizen says:

    Those those who attack Trump for pulling out of the Paris Agreement, and side with the Europeans in their green self-righteous purity.

    U.S. coal product is up 58%. Guess where much of it is going — Europe!

    “A report by the EIA indicated that coal exports—for both steam coal, used for power generation, and metallurgical coal, used for refining steel—have increased by 58 percent from Q1 of 2016 to Q1 of 2017. The majority of the increase was in steam coal, which grew by 6 million short tons (MMst).

    Big U.S. coal customer: Europe

    The majority of the coal was shipped from ports on the Atlantic Coast and Gulf Coast. The U.S. exported a total of 10.135 million short tons of steam coal during Q1. Steam coal exports were bound largely for European markets—which consumed approximately 50 percent of the U.S.’ total steam coal exports in Q1, 2017.”

  5. Jonesy says:

    Right SD. EU is now happy because they will not have to be held hostage by Russia for Natural Gas etc…

    This all due to Trump cutting crippling Obama era policies.

  6. Jonesy says:

    Monmouth was the worst pollster of 2016, of course not to Robbie, who links to their newsletter.

    Gillespie is probably up 2-4%

  7. Jonesy says:

    The reason I called out Bitter on using multiple handles, which I agree is harmless, is that I Have been accused of the same thing, which is not true.

    I have had punk Corey say I was somebody else etc..

    Simple. I have posted on another sites, and I have lurked here for years, because Wes and others give great insight on elections.

  8. Jonesy says:

    Now I see that Bitter has accused me of being “Trump”. BS. Scroll Down.

  9. Bitterlaw says:

    Jonesy – Do you see the distinction yet. I have never posted serious (well, for me) posts or commented on issues with any other handle than “Bitterlaw.” If you say that you have only been “Jonesy” then I will accept you at your word.

    Poster Trump has posted before as somebody else.

  10. Bitterlaw says:

    I never said that you were Trump. I said Soccer Guru is Trump.

  11. Bitterlaw says:

    I did say that you seem to have a high level of interest in this topic for somebody who claims to have only posted as Jonesy.

  12. Jonesy says:

    11. Fair Enough, Bitter. I only post as Jonesy, so can we drop it?

  13. Jonesy says:

    McConnell flying McCain into DC this week. is he the 50th vote?

    A Gillespie win in Blue Va, would be awful for Dem morale. does he do well in NoVa, Wes?

  14. Jonesy says:

    Bitter, how about the the Pa Gov Race? what is your take?

  15. San Diego Citizen says:

    5. “Right SD. EU is now happy because they will not have to be held hostage by Russia for Natural Gas etc…”

    Seems to be what is happening.

    “The United States liquefied natural gas (LNG) could impact Gazprom’s position in the European market according to Piotr Naimski, Polish minister for oil and gas infrastructure.”

    If I were Putin, would have viewed Trump’s proposed energy policies as the worst threat Russia faced. It will be interesting to see how the investigations of Russian funding of U.S. anti-fracking groups turns out.

  16. San Diego Citizen says:

    13. “McConnell flying McCain into DC this week. is he the 50th vote?”

    Do not think it would happen unless his vote would create a majority. Is the source for this news reliable?

  17. Jonesy says:

    SD, it was noted at RRHelections.com

  18. Jonesy says:

    Delphi has Kid Rock leading Stabenow 30-26 with 44% undecided in Michigan.

    A Bogus pollster like Monmouth and PPP?

  19. San Diego Citizen says:

    17. Hi Jonesy, thanks for the information. The Hill has it too.

    “McCain’s office declined to confirm his schedule.

    Two Senate aides said they expect he will be present Tuesday afternoon when lawmakers vote on a motion to proceed to the House-passed American Health Care Act.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has said he will offer an amendment to replace it with a bill that repeals as much of ObamaCare as possible, setting up a two-year transition to craft replacement legislation.”

  20. San Diego Citizen says:

    McConnell is a expert parliamentarian and leader, as witnessed during the cabinet member approvals and confirmation of Gorsuch. But if he pulls this one off, will be amazing.

  21. Cash Cow TM says:

    “Rosanna and Hanna Fontana’s Nana Santana sat in a Havana cabana and wrapped a banana in a bandana to eat manana.”

  22. Jonesy says:

    20. Agreed. He wants to put GOP Senators on record.

    No more hiding for Heller etc…

  23. San Diego Citizen says:

    Here are the Democrats being totally pathetic. Schumer and Pelosi appealing to the country folk. Gosh darn.

    Even the leftist AP made fun of them.

    _____________
    “AP Top News

    BERRYVILLE, Va. (AP) — Promising “A Better Deal” for American workers, Democratic Party leaders rolled out a new agenda with a populist pitch on Monday aimed at winning back the working-class voters they lost to President Donald Trump in November.

    “Democratic leaders attempt to rebrand the party with a new slogan and a populist new agenda as they look ahead to the 2018 midterms. (July 24)

    “Too many Americans don’t know what we stand for,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York. “Not after today.”

    “Yet the challenges confronting the Democrats’ rebranding effort were immediately apparent.

    As Schumer spoke alongside other House and Senate Democrats, TV news stations were instead showing Trump adviser Jared Kushner denying collusion with Russia, as Trump administration turmoil swamped Democrats’ attempt to get their message out.

    And the Democrats’ new message was presented by some familiar old faces in Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, whose potency as a GOP foil has been on display in House special elections this year. A small group of protesters hoisted pizza boxes with photos of Pelosi and the words “Better skills, Better jobs, Better wages, Still Pelosi.”

    The phrase played off the full title of the Democratic platform — “A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future” — which some have mockingly compared to the Papa John’s pizza slogan, “Better Ingredients, Better Pizza.” “

  24. Tina says:

    Rudy g says sessiosns was right to recuse himself.

    Another fake news report.

    It was done tomdistract from jareds testimony today.

  25. San Diego Citizen says:

    23. “Trump administration turmoil swamped Democrats’ attempt to get their message out.”

    This seems to be a long-term Trump strategy.

    My hunch is people prefer watching Ivanka and Jared vs. Nancy and Charles. Youth has its charms.

    Wait a minute, “Ivanka” — isn’t that the female form of the name Ivan. One of Putin’s favor historic figures was Ivan the Terrible. More evidence of Russian collusion.

  26. Tina says:

    Btw, there are no criminal defense attornies working for the president. I submit he is not being looked at by mueller.

    My opinion is that the mueller investigation is ending soon, he could not be that biased to hire the drat whose who of legal minds, muellr stays, and the sessions matter is a smoke screen

  27. Tina says:

    Do they have more muh russian in the dr at slogan?

  28. Tina says:

    Ty cobb hired as white house special counsel. Took a massive pay cut. Cobb says he has rocks in his head anfd steel bxlls.

  29. San Diego Citizen says:

    26. Agree the investigation may end soon, and another reason why is THERE IS NOTHING THERE warranting the investigation.

  30. Tina says:

    $1.25 million to $175000.

  31. Tina says:

    An sp would not waste his or her time with paper work matters that werr Voluntarily corrected.

  32. Bitterlaw says:

    Bitter, how about the the Pa Gov Race? what is your take?

    Wolfe is the quietest Governor to ever hold office. He rarely speaks and I can’t recall the last time there was any controversy involving him. He sucks but is quiet about it.

    There are no major figures running against him yet. If I had to predict right now, I would say that he wins re-election. He can run against Trump effectively even though Trump won PA. It is simple – Trump won PA because Hillary was worse. Wolfe is not Hillary.

  33. Robbie says:

    None of this is fair to Jeff Sessions.

    – So your claim is Rudy didn’t say this? Or Rudy only said this as part of a Trump 13D chess move?

  37. Trump says:

    Another fake news.

    No source, nothing. Just some random tweet of voices in the head.

    But the retard is all for it.

    By the way, retard, you said to buckle the seat belts for the Jared testimony. What happened? Another epic fail?

  38. lisab says:

    White Women Are Racist Because of the Way They Walk on Sidewalks

    “In seven years of living and walking here, I’ve found that most people walk courteously — but that white women, at least when I’m in their path, do not,” Howard writes.

    “Sometimes they’re buried in their phones. Other times, they’re in pairs and groups, and in conversation. But often, they’re looking ahead, through me, if not quite at me,” he continues.

    “When white women are in my path, they almost always continue straight, forcing me to one side without changing their course. This happens several times a day; and a couple of times a week, white women force me off the sidewalk completely. In these instances, when I’m standing in the street or in the dirt as a white woman strides past, broad-shouldered and blissful, I turn furious,” Howard said.

    “After these encounters, I’m always left with questions. Why only and specifically white women? Do they refuse to acknowledge me because they’ve been taught that they should fear black men, and that any acknowledgment of black men can invite danger? Do they refuse to acknowledge me because to alter their route would be to show their fear? Do they not see me? Can they not see me?” he asks later in the essay.

    – Your ability to make things up is unique even for this comment section.

  42. Trump says:

    Nobody makes things up,like you,mretard robbie.

    Hillary 374 EVs? Even Hillary couldn’t make that up.

  43. Trump says:

    And what happened at the Jared hearing today?

    Did your buckled seatbelt fail, retard?

  44. Bitterlaw says:

    I toured St. Joseph’s University yesterday with my niece. She liked the school. I told her it was a Jesuit school so she she should avoid being critical of leftists on her college essay.

    I set the over/under on Jared Kushner-Russian meetings at 6. So far, it is at 4 but it started at 1 so the final number will likely change. I will take the over.

  47. Tina says:

    Rudy g made the statement about recusal.

    The account of trump replacing sessions and hiring rudy is fake.

  48. Tina says:

    You do realize that some of those meetings comsisted of two phone calls during transition. That is pretty standard fare.

    Hi, i missed you again. How is hillary?

  50. Wes says:

    Gillespie and Northam are probably genuinely tied. The determining factor in this race will be how well each performs in his base areas–Gillespie in Outstate Virginia and Northam in NoVA. If either underperforms in his own territory, he loses. Conversely an overperformance likely seals a victory. Gillespie has to rally the Outstate Trumpkins and work NoVA hard to win.

    He can do it as evidenced in his heartbreaking 2014 loss, but it won’t be easy. Republicans need to rally behind him hard as they didn’t in 2014 so as to ensure a victory.

    US intelligence believe “Russian hacking” was inside job by DNC

    BREAKING NEWS: Veteran intelligence agents, including NSA agents, have sent a memo to Trump saying the “Russian Hacking” of DNC computers was actually INSIDE JOB to frame russian government, citing new forensics studies!

  55. Bitterlaw says:

    I think it started as zero meetings. Then 2. Now 4. I’m not sayng there was anything about the meetings. I just don’t know the number keeps changing.

  56. Tina says:

    January 2017: Rep. Gabbard calls on US govt to stop ‘supporting terrorists’ after meeting Syria civilians & Assad

  61. Hugh says:

    Guys. I am a very busy guy with a calendar that is crammed. I suspect Jared Kushner’s is way worse and filled with even more important meetings. I am at events all the time and have short interactions with everyone and their brother. I would not call those meetings or even conversations. guess what I do not remember most of them. Everyone thinks they are really busy but really they are not. They remember conversations because they are not meeting important people constantly in crowded events. This is a joke. What Jared Kushner’s remembers as relevant the average would never understand. Btw no offense to the average guy.

  62. PresidentPaul! says:

    January 17: Tulsi Gabbard reveals she met Assad in Syria, without informing top Democrats

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jan/26/tulsi-gabbard-bashar-al-assad-syria-democrats

    “Democrats were silent on Thursday as Tulsi Gabbard, one of the party’s sitting lawmakers in Congress, announced that she had met with Bashar al-Assad during a trip to war-torn Syria and dismissed his entire opposition as “terrorists”.

    Gabbard, a Democratic congresswoman from Hawaii, disclosed her meeting with the Syrian president on Wednesday, during what her office called a “fact-finding” mission in the region.”

  63. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes – Jason T/JT was also a racist. I do not see that in Jonesy.

  64. San Diego Citizen says:

    61. Agree. Kushner has the unenviable task of trying to advise and reign in a man who acts compulsively and says crazy things, and deal with the Manafort and Bannon types. I have grown to respect him.

  65. Tina says:

    Watch out, he filled out his form wrong. He will be doing some time.

    I wonder if OJ will find the real killer of Nicole and Ron before Robbie finds the killer of JEB!’s campaign.

    – I found the real killer in September 2015. It was Jeb.

  68. Tina says:

    It was dead as soon as he announced.

  69. Bitterlaw says:

    I think that JEB! is a good man. He is not a scumbag like Trump. However, fair or not, he allowed himself to be defined as a moderate/Republican with statements about immigration and support for Common Core. If JEB! Had secured the nomination, I would have voted for him.

  70. Bitterlaw says:

    Did it say “FAKE DOSSIER” on it?

  71. Wes says:

    Had JEB! been the nominee last year, not only would I have voted for Hillary, but I would have ordered several thousand bumper stickers saying Vote for the Hag. It’s Importsnt.

  72. Wes says:

    Had JEB! been the nominee last year, not only would I have voted for Hillary, but I would have ordered several thousand bumper stickers saying Vote for the Hag. It’s Important.

  73. Tina says:

    No, comedy thought it was real and was fbi head.

    But you love him.

  74. Tina says:

    And a senator who shall not be named.

  75. JC says:

    Hmm, Mitch is having McCain fly out to DC for the upcoming Repeal vote tomorrow. I wonder if this means they managed to flip some senators. I doubt they’d bother McCain if his vote wouldn’t be important.

  76. Bitterlaw says:

    I don’t love him. I just don’t understand your pathological hatred of him. Well, aside from your complete and absolute devotion to Trump. It’s ok. We both voted for Trump. Probably for different reasons.

  77. Tina says:

    I think e was a poor director for several reasons already specified. You are not even aware that the pepe dossier was fake.

  78. Wes says:

    Trumpkins seem to hate all Republicans not named Donald Trump, Bitter.

    If the congressional GOP passed every item on Trump’s agenda and found the cures for cancer, AIDS, and zika, the Trumpkins would criticize thdm for not repealing the 22nd Amendment so Trump could run indefinitely.

    That’s not to say McConnell and Ryan haven’t made mistakes, but the Trumpkins literally give them no credit for anything,

  79. Tina says:

    Rumour is rand will allow a vote to procede as will possibky cavuto. The majn chicklet is still a no, and the alaskan sea porker is unknown

  80. Bitterlaw says:

    I know it”s fake now. Hindsight is 20/20. Of course, if it said FAKE DOSSIER on it, he should have caught that,

  81. Tina says:

    Its a problem given the fbi chose to believe it as true and did not vet it. And there are reports that he paid for portions of it.

  82. Tina says:

    Just like they took crowdstrikes statements that the russians broke into the dnc. They never secur d the crime scene.

  83. lisab says:

    “Trumpkins seem to hate all Republicans not named Donald Trump, Bitter.”

    perhaps it is because the gop has for years been lying to them about border security, lower taxes for the middle class,fair trade and universal health care.

    when obama was sure to veto their bills they were all gung ho on these issues, now that they would be signed by trump, they won’t do it.

  84. Bitterlaw says:

    It’s easy to say “No.” Actually passing laws that would work is more complex.

    I think that Trump is a charlatan until proven otherwise. Tina does not agree. At least Hillary is not President.

  85. Bitterlaw says:

    Maybe there can be a compromise. Trump stays off Twitter, The GOP Congress passes some bills.

  86. Trump says:

    You can think anything you want, moron. Doesn’t make it so.

    The problem the incompetent and corrupt GOP has is that now they have no excuse to hide behind. Their lies and corruption are exposed by Trump.

  87. Trump says:

    Here’s the compromise.

    Trump keeps tweeting, GOP congress keeps masturbating.

    Let’s see who wins.

  88. Trump says:

    Let GOP congress not pass any bills, and then face voters in 2018.

    How’s that for a compromise?

  89. Bitterlaw says:

    Zzzzzzzzzzz. Go off on a 20 post tirade, Trump.

  90. Trump says:

    F u off, moron.

    Never anything to contribute, but posts 190 times a day.

    Go rant on the civil war.

  91. Trump says:

    The wrong side won the civil war.

    Discuss.

  92. Trump says:

    Meanwhile, getting back to the present, all Trump folks show and testify, all Obama folks take the Fifth.

    Coincidence?

  93. Trump says:

    The one Obama turd who testified basically indicted himself, telling the world he was a weak little man.

  94. lisab says:

    “It’s easy to say “No.” Actually passing laws that would work is more complex.”

    when they knew obama would not sign the bills they were happy to pass them. now not so much.

    they were treating the middle class much the way the dems treat the minorities. “oh sure vote for us and we will make your lives better … next time”. the middle class voters have a reason to be angry, they have been lied to.

    at least the dem leadership, poor as it is, seems to get why trump won as illustrated by their new deal.

    the republicans are talking about “comprehensive immigration reform”, meaning giving citizenship to the illegal immigrants that are already here.

    while that would certainly lower costs to businesses it would not lower overall costs as the illegals need welfare to supplement their income.

    as i mentioned the other day, black unemployment is already at just about the lowest rate it has been in 45 years!!! when illegals stop coming over the border, business start hiring citizens.

  95. Trump says:

    “Maine town, Bar Harbor, resorts to hire Americans as H2-B visas run out…”

    Not a headline from The Onion…

  96. jason says:

    Soccer Moron is as much a Republican or conservative as Trump is.

    Who cares what his opinion of the GOP is?

  97. Trump says:

    GOP voters care about GOP congress, and that’s how you got trump.

    Moron.

  98. jason says:

    I think that JEB! is a good man. He is not a scumbag like Trump. However, fair or not, he allowed himself to be defined as a moderate/Republican with statements about immigration and support for Common Core. If JEB! Had secured the nomination, I would have voted for him.”

    He wasn’t defined, he defined himself with “act of love”, “respect conservatives”, common core and other asininities, coupled with disastrous debates and horrible body language. And he didn’t bother with the primaries, he went right to the GE.

    He is a good man and I would have voted for him. And Hillary would have kicked his ass.

  99. Trump says:

    No difference between Jeb and Hillary.

    Please clap.

  100. jason says:

    he republicans are talking about “comprehensive immigration reform”, meaning giving citizenship to the illegal immigrants that are already here.”

    Zzzzzz… water under the bridge, they aren’t going anywhere, anyone who thinks Trump is going to deport them is a moron.

    Be happy that at least he is trying to secure the border and deport the criminals.

  101. jason says:

    Huge difference between Jeb and Hillary, starting with the fact Jeb is not a criminal.

    Hillary is a hard core leftist, Jeb abandoned conservatism in favor of “muddling up the middle”, which he thought was was the electorate wanted.

    Jeb was selling what he thought would sell, what I called Hillary light, way to the left of the way he governed in Florida.

    But he would have been a much better President than Hillary, let’s get real.

  102. Trump says:

    No difference between Jeb and Hillary.

    Same policies. Same results. Both losers.

  103. San Diego Citizen says:

    “The crowd attending President Trump’s Monday evening speech to the Boy Scouts of America’s National Jamboree appeared to boo former President Barack Obama at one point. “By the way, just a question. Did President Obama ever come to a jamboree?” Trump asked the crowd, which booed in response.”

    Obama booed. Shocking! And by future snowflakes too! The horror! — it must because of the latent sexism of using a name like “boy scouts.” We must give them a new name like “gender-neutral scouts” or “bi-gendered scouts”, or maybe “scouters.” And that motto of “duty to God and country” — a remnant of barbarianism.

  104. JC says:

    I don’t think Jeb even wanted to run. I think he was talked into carrying the Bush legacy by his family and their backers.

    The Bush’s wanted their legacy and influence to continue, and their backers – donors/party insiders/lobbyists/etc. wanted their power and prestige back.

    How do you think Jeb was able to instantly raise 100 million dollars? The old club wanted a way back into the ruling class, and they saw Jeb as their ticket there.

    Fortunately, the American people were more interested in destroying the ruling elite, not replacing it with a different set of Swamp Creatures.

  110. NYCmike says:

    The more jason says about JEB!2016 “Hillary would have kicked his ass.” the more I think he would also have won.

    Even you should be able to see the failures of this Congress. This is exactly correct. Bills were passed when they would be vetoed. NOW, WHEN THEY WILL BE SIGNED INTO LAW, they refrain.

    -I don’t see this at all.

    I think those tweets are more about Hillary and Russia than about Sessions.

    Also, if Sessions can’t handle a little criticism on Twitter, then he should not be in his position.

    People outside of NY are real snowflakes, if he resigns over this.

  116. Phil says:

    Doesn’t do a lot of good firing Sessions. The special counsel and his merry band of donating to Hillary donors has already been unleashed.

    Make Trump either shut up, keep yapping, or fire you.

    Either way it goes down, it is all “sticks and stones….”. Don’t pay any attention to it.

    That said, somehow I’m not surprised you would have no problem with Trump acting like a douche bag to his earliest and highest profile endorser. Loyalty is a one way street with Trump.

    None of this is normal or acceptable behavior from a president.

    Yes, it is slightly different, in that you still need numbers. BUT, you would make the DEm Senators from red states show their true, liberal colors. FORCE THEM INTO TOUGH VOTES.

    I’d love to miss a day of not commenting on this freak show, but Trump can’t help himself. Every day, he does something stupid, embarrassing, and idiotic. And just as I’m here to criticize his behavior, you’re here to defend him.

    I will have to take NYC’s side on this one. I know, tough, it happens.

    I think some of us have reconciled ourselves to the fact someone who is not a Republican and not a conservative won the election. Legitimately.

    Like you, the left wing MSM has not accepted he won. They are trying everything to destroy his legitimacy with the most dishonest campaign I have ever seen, much worse than what they did to Reagan and Bush.

    So you can either harp on that forever or you can move on. I chose to move on, and support Trump where I can. There is a lot I can support him on. Energy. Judicial appointments. Border security. Rebuilding the military. Taxes. Deregulation.

    And I support him in his counter attack against a biased and dishonest media. I might not agree with every single tweet, but I agree that tweeting is one of the few weapons he has to present a counter narrative.

    What is sad is someone who describes himself as a conservative buying into what is obviously a orchestrated and concerted effort to overturn the election.

    – Wrong. I accepted he won and offered real praise for the cabinet he selected and Neil Gorsuch.

    However, I am not going to accept his behavior simply because he is a Republican when I wouldn’t have accepted it had Obama done it.

    Trump’s behavior is beneath the dignity of the office of president.

    – I know Newt and Hannity have convinced you everyone on Mueller’s staff is a Democrat, but they’re not.

    It’s always good to hear the side of the story FoxNews isn’t delivering before drawing a conclusion.

  190. jason says:

    don’t remember what you thought about the Mika facelift tweet. Was that cool or not?”

    You have a short memory. I said Mika is partisan hack and fake journalist who has said a lot worse of Trump than he said of her, so I thought all the fake outrages was ridiculous.

  191. Robbie says:

    jason says:

    There was NOTHING inappropriate about Trump’s address to the Boy Scouts.
    So what if he talked about Obamacare, the election, and his real estate deals.
    Wobbie has really swallowed the MSM narrative hook, line and sinker.
    I feel sorry for someone who is that gullible. Really.

    – The speech was supposed to be about the core values of the Boy Scouts, not Obamacare or Crooked Hillary. They’re young boys.

  192. Phil says:

    I am opposed to using the Russian bullsh*t as a way to overturn a fair and democratic election. End of story. Tell me with a straight face that is not what is happening here.

    – Got it. So it’s cool for the president to attack people about their looks.

  194. Phil says:

    So it’s cool for the pres to attack people for their looks.

    No, only cool to attack press secretaries for their weight.

    – You seem to think they’ll find something. I am dubious there’s anything in Trump’s finances that is a problem or we’d have heard about it a long time ago.

    And my guess is we learn that from Mueller by the end of the year. Trump’s problem is Flynn, not his finances.

  196. Jonesy says:

    I agree with many here that the dignity Office of the President was destroyed by the Lewinski scandal, and the fact that Bubba was not removed from office.

  197. Jonesy says:

    I have no problem with Sessions, hopefully this is a way to get Jeff to get tougher

  198. Jonesy says:

    I agree with Phil. Mueller should be fired

  199. jason says:

    I’m still waiting to learn one area where you have disagreed with Trump’s actions.”

    Sure.

    I criticized his cancelling of the TPP agreement, I think it was shortsighted even if politically popular. I have slammed his anti free trade rhetoric and his opposition to Nafta. I don’t like his Commerce Secretary, Ross. In general, I don’t like his protectionist leanings.

    While I think he is right that Sessions should never have recused himself, I don’t think he should be criticizing him publicly.

    I don’t think he has shown good leadership on Obamacare. He has taken too many different positions on it and one reason is that I don’t think he is really ideologically opposed to big government healthcare.

    I think he has too much of an adversarial relationship with McConnell and Ryan. It was ok to run against them, it worked, but now its a different ballgame. There is more to be gained by getting things done and less on continuing to run against the “establishment”.

    These things are 1000 times more important than the tweets that you are focused on.

    Next question?

  200. jason says:

    – Got it. So it’s cool for the president to attack people about their looks.”

    It’s ok for him to attack fake journalists and partisan media hacks that attacked him in a worse way first.

    Yes.

    MSM horsecrap.

    Fine. Call it what you want.

    Agree Jason. Any member of the MSM is open to ridicule. How many lives have they ruined going thru garbage cans?

    But you have to remember Wobbie loves the MSM, because they attack Trump. But when Bushie was POTUS, I am sure he whined over MSM bias.

  206. jason says:

    McCain deserved respect for his service to the country and his POW ordeal.

    Mika is a scumbag posing as a journalist who spends every minute on air attacking Trump including saying he was mentally incapacitated.

    Frankly, Trump could have said worse about her.

    Yep, he forgets that if Jeb had won, the MSM would forget he was their favorite Republican and turn him into a baby eating monster too.

    And he would be outraged.

    But since it is Trump, he is okay with their campaign to overturn the election.

    The hypocrisy is astounding.

  210. jason says:

    Rand Paul is a Yes Vote”

    When it comes to Rand Paul, I take the Groucho Marx approach, where he didn’t want to be a member of any club that would accept him

    I can’t support any bill that he votes yes on….

  211. lisab says:

    If I was Sessions, simply ignore the tweets, and go about your job.

    The problem is he’s not actually doing his job.

    actually, except for the special prosecutor, he is

    illegal immigration is way down

    deportations are way up

    including self-deportations, where illegals leave of their own volition.

    that is exactly session’s ball park. he was chosen specifically because he was a border hawk. already unemployment is down among american citizens, AND foodstamps is likewise lowest in seven years.

    that is not a coincidence.

  212. jason says:

    So Wobbie asked me where I disagreed with Trump. I gave several examples of policy differences I had with him. Trade. Obamacare. Relations with Congress.

    Meanwhile, Wobbie is talking about Mika’s face and Boy Scout speech.

    I rest my case.

    – I wanted to know if you have disagreed with any of Trump’s personal behavior. You haven’t. You’ve defended the wiretap tweets, the Comey tape tweet, the Mika facelift tweet, and everything else in between.

    That’s fine. Just don’t talk to me a bout principle in the future. You checked that at the door when you decided to become a Trump defender.

    By the way, do you ever wear any of that #neverTrump swag you bought from Rubio’s campaign website, or did you throw it all away after he went from hawking that stuff to saying three weeks later he would be honored to speak on behalf of Trump at the convention?

  218. jason says:

    You’ve defended the wiretap tweets, the Comey tape tweet, the Mika facelift tweet, and everything else in between.”

    Huh, wrong, I have not defended every tweet. I just said above I disagreed with the tweets on Sessions.

    So GFY.

    What I have said, is that I defend Trump’s right to tweet because its one of the few ways he has to counter the MSM’s sordid campaign against him.

    To stop tweeting would be unilateral disarmament, he would be crazy to do that. It doesn’t mean I agree with the content of every tweet.

  219. Jonesy says:

    Yeah, I got over Rubio losing the nomination.

    He did too.

    You, on the other hand, need psychiatric help.

  221. wvally says:

    We watched the Boy Scouts speech. It was about the Boy Scouts core values and it was great. He had great anecdotes for them about succeed in life–an especially good one about not losing momentum.

    He introduced several members of his cabinet who were Boy Scouts including Tom price. Said he was working hard to get rid of Obamacare as sort of a one liner. It was funny, and not the “focus” of the speech at all. The crowd was enthralled and cheering like crazy

  222. lisab says:

    jeb probably denied rubio the nomination.

    i am not sure who would have gotten jeb’s money had he not run, but i am guessing rubio.

    rubio did ok, but if he had gotten another $50 million to play with, he might have made a fight of it

  223. Jonesy says:

    a big trump supporter, howie carr, recently visited trump over this past weekend.

    he reported that trump was relaxed and in very good spirits and the white house staff was too.

    now it could be that trump just does not care about what others think, but presumably the white house staff would be tense.

    howie said it was a very calm atmosphere at the white house. this leads me to think trump loves to throw his opponents into chaos so they over-react and say and do stupid things.

    such a strategy works well until you run into someone who won’t get side tracked by a tweet.

    much like lee was able to beat union army after union army by simply sending men to sweep around the flanks. that worked well until he ran into grant who simply did not care and would attack anywhere he saw confederates.

    sherman once said that grant was the only general he met that simply did not care about rumors about what might happen. he attacked where he knew the enemy was.

    i think rubio was tone deaf much like the other gop establishment.

    as i said, they are talking about “comprehensive immigration reform” again — still completely misunderstanding why trump won.

    however, rubio was one of the only candidates i think who **might** have given hillary a race.

    it is possible he could have won. not probable in my opinion, but possible.

  240. lisab says:

    i think the gop senators are making a big mistake thinking they can just do nothing, to make trump look bad.

    the people who elected trump are not going to blame trump.

    this could have consequences in 2018, with sitting gop senators getting primaried.

    -Thank you, jason.

    Also, would like to add: Trump’s non-ideological leanings is the main reason I want Congress leading on legislation. I DO NOT KNOW where Trump will lean on bills. I am supposed to know where McConnell and Ryan will lean, presumably to more market-oriented legislation.

    Please make it so, Congress.

  245. Bitterlaw says:

    Rubio would have never won a Blue Wall State

    I don’t know that. I know at least 10 voters in PA who either did not vote for President or would have voted for Rubio over Clinton. They hated Trump so much that they could not vote for him.

  246. Trump says:

    I think not repealing Obamacare will limit the gains that GOP was expecting in 2018.

    Donnelly and mccaskill are likely gone for Dems, but they will likely pick up heller seat. Maybe flake seat too.

    If he runs, Kid Rock will beat Stab Me Now.

    But that’s it. The GOP will not be able to defeat tester, heitdkamp, brown, or manchin with the internal civil war.

    ALL races are different. The contrast between the 2 would have been stark.

    You have more faith in GOP congress than anyone.

  256. NYCmike says:

  275. Trump says:

    Trump won the Midwest on talk of economy, jobs and immigration.

    By bringing out the rural, small town blue-collar votes in droves, many of them them lifelong democrats.

    Rubio, or any other of the Sweet Sixteen, did not have the message or appeal to these voters.

    That’s why they failed in the primaries, and why they would fail on the general.

    But, as I said, keep up the fantasies if it makes you sleep better.

  276. Trump says:

    Rubio had no credibility on jobs and economy and trade, apart from boiler plate slogans.

    And let’s not even bring up immigration.

    2016 primaries showed the true appeal.

  277. lisab says:

    i think rubio clearly would have lost PA, MI, and WI

    i doubt he would have even tried.

    with kasich on his side i think ohio stays red for rubio

  278. Trump says:

    In the Midwest, trump flipped scores of counties that had gone to Obama by double digits. That is how he won wi, mi, oh, pa and ia.

    No other republican had the appeal, or the message, to do that.

  279. wvally says:

    I have a few moments to spare. Been wanting to share these stories w the gang for a while.

    Our son interviewed to join a college prep program this summer for college bound kids on autistic spectrum, where you live on campus, take one course and get lots of social and academic support. Great program. (Spoiler: he was accepted and is there now)

    During his interview, he was I was outside the room, but I could hear what was said. At one point they asked him whether he’d ever been bullied. He replied that he was “stalked by a black girl”. Major trigger.

    Do you have a problem with black people? NO
    Would you have a problem with a black professor? NO
    A black woman professor? NO
    A black room mate? NO
    A hispanic room mate? NO
    A muslim room mate? NO
    A gay room mate? NO
    A transgender room mate? No. I’m not racist!!!

    Okay. Lets go back to the girl who you say stalked you. Your problem had nothing to do with her being black? NO

    What was the problem? She was too friendly, and constantly following me and trying to help me. It made me uncomfortable.

    ***
    In the end, all of his suite mates (also in the Autism support program) were white males. But thanks to the interview we know he would have been cool with anyone.

    i am no rubio fan

    i just think he was the gop establishment’s best chance

    could christie have won? people don’t like him.

    jeb? even his mother did not want him to run.

    huckabee? speaks well but a regional candidate.

    paul? i thought he would be a MUCH stronger candidate, but for some reason which i do not understand, republicans seem to not like him.

    kasich? i think he had an inside straight’s chance

    walker? he was too soft spoken and boring?

  282. Trump says:

    Trump won about 235 out of 700 counties that voted for Obama in both 2008 and 2012.

    Many of them by over 20 points.

    He also won 194 out of 207 counties that had voted for Obama in either 2008 or 2012.

    He got out voters that none of the other candidates would even ask.

    This was a result of Trump’s message and appeal, not ground game, campaign organization, or tv ads.

  283. wvally says:

    Also during the interview:

    Q: Have you ever drank alcohol?

    A: May parents frequently give me alcohol to deal with my anxiety.

    Me in room outside listening: WTF!!!!!

    Me when I get to join the interview later on: Umm, just to clarify– I gave you a sip of a margarita once. When you asked why people drink alcohol I said sometimes it was to reduce social anxiety.

    Son: Oh. Yeah that’s right.

    Interviewers: Don’t worry, we don’t judge!

    LOL that is hilarious!

  286. janz says:

    #168. Well said!

    I also listened to most of the Boy Scouts speech. While I’m tired of Trump gushing about his election win feat, most of his comments were appropriate, if not inspirational for a crowd of young people.

    Promoting momentum, hard work, and chosing a career in something you love to do – words of wisdom coming directly from the POTUS – is bound to stick in the minds of those attending this event.

  287. lisab says:

    wvally,

    i don’t know this to be true, but i was told this by my parents.

    my second oldest sister, i am the fouth of four, is a drama queen. she always was. she always needs to be the center of attention — which is why i did not have her in my wedding party, but that is a whole other story 🙂

    apparently she would not sleep as an infant and always insisted on being held. she just cried constantly.

    one day my parents could not take it anymore and gave her a little white wine … worked like a charm i’m told.

    nail on head

  300. Wobbles says:

    Enough is enough.

    Trump mentioned Obamacare in a a speech to boy scouts.

    Impeachment and then a fair trial before he is sent to jail.

  301. NYCmike says:

    Did Robbie see any part of the Boy Scout speech OTHER than the line where Obamacare was mentioned?

    -stated another way-

    Did Mika and Joe broadcast any part of the Boy Scout speech OTHER than the line where Obamacare was mentioned?

  302. wvally says:

    I’ve looked at that program at St. Joseph’s Bitter. Glad to hear good things about it from you. I think our son will apply so its one of his options. He’s going into senior year this fall, so we’re about to plunge into the college application process. We’re bracing ourselves for costs–it’s eye-watering.

  303. SoHope says:

    People saying Trump flipped a lot of counties that Obama won are forgetting Hillary wasn’t Obama…and that voters had Democrat fatigue. I think many republicans could have beaten Hillary and Rubio would have probably won by much more and won the popular vote.

  304. Trump says:

    Right, so hope.

    Rubio couldn’t even beat Cruz or Kasich.

  305. wvally says:

    Saw some discussion up-thread of “whataboutism”. As in, Trump demeans the office but so did Obama w his lies is “whataboutism”.

    But this is really the point, isn’t it? Just how hypocritical these people are. It honestly why so many don’t give a sh*t about all the current hysteria. There are all kinds of things which were far graver and more scandalous to us that they didn’t peep about, and actively covered up/ignored.

    Now they want everything Trump does to be the unprecedented worst thing ever and a constitutional crisis.

    Whatever. F off. I could care less.

    I care about the legislative agenda and executive action only.

  306. SoHope says:

    It’s more like Hillary lost counties that Obama won due to many things (Bernie resentment, lower AA turnout, GOP hunger, dem fatigue, and the fact that Hillary was a horrible candidate)…none of them was because Trump was a better candidate or had an appealing message.

  307. Bitterlaw says:

    WV – I just toured Saint Joe’s with my niece this past weekend. It has a beautiful campus. It is right on the border of Philadelphia and a wealthy suburb (Lower Merion Township). The campus is small but in 2 counties. It is definitely worth taking the tour. Let me know if you are visiting.

  308. Bitterlaw says:

    St. Joseph’s (Jesuit) and Villanova (Augustinian) have a very heated basketball rivalry. Their annual game is called “The Holy War.”

  309. wvally says:

    The Holy war–love it. And St Joe’s sounds idyllic. I’ll definitely coordinate w you Bitter when we come up to tour. Will be nice to catch up again 🙂

  310. NYCmike says:

    “…none of them was because Trump was a better candidate or had an appealing message.”

    -That is not valid reasoning, imho.

    You, along with many others, have consistently given Trump little credit for the campaign he waged.

    Most of the same people would have derided Breitbart.com and Steve Bannon as “deadenders” and other bad names.

    YET, they seemed to have a pretty good pulse of what the electorate wanted.

  311. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    Never got in touch with you, because my niece and husband had already made a commitment on a house.

    Broomall is where they are going.

    Close to you?

  312. SoHope says:

    A Republican would have won against Hillary no matter who (Trump won even with the multitude of potential votes he lost for being a horrible human being). I think Trump was a net loss of votes compared to genetic Republican candidate. Rubio would have been a net gain. CRUZ or would have been equal to genetic republican.

  313. Trump says:

    What the hell is a genetic republican?

  314. SoHope says:

    A Republican would have won against Hillary no matter who (Trump won even with the multitude of potential votes he lost for being a horrible human being). I think Trump was a net loss of votes compared to genetic Republican candidate. Rubio would have been a net gain. Cruz or would have been equal to generic republican.

  315. SoHope says:

    *generic

  316. Trump says:

    You can believe anything you want, so hope. Mickey Mouse could have won against Hillary.

    It’s a free country.

    Results are what actually matter.

  317. SoHope says:

    Autocorrect sucks

  318. Trump says:

    If there was such a great anti-Hillary sentiment, how come it went only to trump and not to losers like Cruz or Rubio?

  319. SoHope says:

    Great…result are all that matter so don’t comment on how great Trump’s chances are for 2020 for another 3+ years…we will see the results.

  320. Trump says:

    After all, the fake polls showed that Rubio would beat Hillary in head to head? By double digits, to boot.

  321. Bitterlaw says:

    SoHope – Prepare to be insulted by Poster Trump. I think that HHR is a good barometer of how Rubio would have performed with Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents. Rubio would have received almost all of the votes from those groups here. Trump lost the vote of the following:

    Author (voted for Clinton)
    Wes – did not vote for President
    Jason – “”
    MD – “”
    Robbie – “”
    Corey – “”

    That is 6 lost voted in our small sample. Did 6 Democrats make up the difference by voting for Trump?

  322. Trump says:

    He’s are the results of his actins, idiot.

  323. SoHope says:

    You seem to think a strong primary record equates to a strong general election candidate.

  324. Trump says:

    Math challenged idiot thinks 6 votes on an obscure blog determines elections.

    God, the depths of idiocy.

  325. Trump says:

    Yes it does.

    A weak primary results in no general election participation.

  326. Trump says:

    Show me a weak primary record that resulted in GE win.

  327. Bitterlaw says:

    It is one example. Considering that Poster Trump predicted that Trump would not only lose the election but also cost the GOP huge losses in the House and Senate, his views are pretty suspect.

  328. NYCmike says:

    “The 36% who support Trump do so on a mix of emotion, race and xenophobia. In short, these are not our best and brightest.”

    -A former poster has continued his BOLD STATEMENTS in another forum.

    YES< his wife approved this statement.

    -More news that Robbie won’t share with HHR, but he will mention tweets.

  330. Trump says:

    No wonder you are a bitter person.

    With stupidity like this, it is understandable.

  331. SoHope says:

    A weak primary results in the person not being the candidate…duh
    My point is that many candidates had a strong turnout in the primary would were despised by the broader electorate.

  332. PresidentPaul! says:

    #328

    Trump outperformed McCain&Romney who were supposedly great uniters.

    I don’t think HHR is representative of the GOP or indies at all.

  333. Bitterlaw says:

    With stupidity like this, it is understandable.

    Tell us again why Trump was going to lose the election and devastate the GOP across the country. Your Trump-love revisionist bs is fascinating.

  334. NYCmike says:

    “I don’t think HHR is representative of the GOP or indies at all.”

    -This is correct.

    HHR is made up of people who are overly worried about politics, with the highest level (lowest?) being occupied by the concern troll extraordinaire, Robbie.

  335. Bitterlaw says:

    I don’t think HHR is representative of the GOP or indies at all.

    Because only NYC has not told you to F off.

  336. SoHope says:

    McCain and Romney ran against Obama…not Hillary

  337. PresidentPaul! says:

    Trump won NC, florida, ohio, michigan, Penn, Wisconsin, Iowa. NC.

    McCain tried to troll the GOP. Romney was a flat candidate.

    Trump was simply a much better candidate than either.

  338. SoHope says:

    Precentage of primary vote doesn’t prove a person is a GE winner.

    Total primary vote precentage
    Gore 75.1%
    Kerry 60%
    McCain 46.7%
    Romney 52.1%
    Trump 44.9%

  339. SoHope says:

    McCain was bound to lose because of GWB fatigue and Obama’s rockstar got among men status and first black president inflated black turnout

    Romney had a chance but failed as a candidate. Obama was a god to the dem rank and file.

    Hilary had none of those qualities and after 8 years republicans were hungry.

  340. SoHope says:

    In 2008 Obama got fewer primary vote than Hillary and still won the GE by 8%

    Would Hillary have won by more based on her higher primary vote percentage?

  341. GPO says:

    Caputo a yes

  342. GPO says:

    IMO RUBIO loses Pa, Michigan, Wisconsin
    Wins Nevada , Colorado Virginia

  343. PresidentPaul! says:

    Also I think McCain&Romney are basically unacceptable candidates to GOP voters at this point.

    Rubio&Jeb were joke candidates. Wishing for some prior iteration of these candidates from years prior running on the same agenda with a different name doesn’t change things.

  344. PresidentPaul! says:

    HHR is still in #NeverTrump mode where as 99% of the rest of country’s GOP voters support Trump.

    Most of the rest of the country doesn’t even know who John Kasich is.

  345. NYCmike says:

    “Because only NYC has not told you to F off.”

    -Another falsehood.

  346. lisab says:

    I don’t see it that way. HHR is, on the whole, in “hope Trump can get anything useful done” mode and screw the media mode, IMO.

  349. SoHope says:

    I agree 2008 Hillary would have won…generic Republican would have won. I doubt she would have won by as much as Obama did…. Obama did not lose one Hillary voter and turned out the higher percentage in the black demographic that was at least worth 2% in the general election.

  350. NYCmike says:

    “by 2016 she was damaged by benghazi and the email scandals and still beat trump by 2%”

    -In the wrong states…….so sorry, does not count.

    The rules were set up BEFORE the election, THANKS VERY MUCH!

  352. Waingro says:

    Not even close. There has been a tremendous shift since the election.

  353. NYCmike says:

    What is “MTP”?

  354. SoHope says:

    I’m in didn’t like Trump didn’t vote for Trump glad he still won over Hillary hope he actually gets conservative stuff done and hope he doesn’t screw over the GOP chance to win as a party for the next 12 years mode

    —————

    i think the open borders outsource everything side of the gop just does not get it

    trump has a very appealing message for the working class who have seen their jobs disappear

  358. PresidentPaul! says:

    Maybe if we run Bernie Sanders or Marco Rubio as the GOP nominee that candidate might defeat Hillary instead of Trump.

    That doesn’t change the fact the GOP voters don’t like Marco or Bernie.

  359. NYCmike says:

  362. Waingro says:

    #364, yeah, and she was just safely re-elected for another 6 years. We are stuck with the Collins Clone.

  363. NYCmike says:

    Murk could not even allow a vote to take place on the actual bill before she voted “NAY”……yup, “deadeneders” once again are at fault!///

  364. lisab says:

    In the wrong states…….so sorry, does not count.

    The rules were set up BEFORE the election, THANKS VERY MUCH!

    no you misunderstood

    i think the scandals hurt her and she would have done better against mccain in 2008

  365. BayernFan says:

    Lol Joe Miller would have been a million times better and would have won if not for the ultimate deadender Murkowski.

    Voting not to even debate this …. can’t get more dead end than that.

  366. BayernFan says:

    With republicans like that who needs Dems?

  367. PresidentPaul! says:

    “I don’t see it that way. HHR is, on the whole, in “hope Trump can get anything useful done” mode and screw the media mode, IMO.”

    GWB only had negative accomplishments though: Iraq war hoax, 9/11, systemic torture/war crimes, no child left behind, promoting amnesty, bad appointments, entitlement expansion with part D.

  372. BayernFan says:

  420. Bitterlaw says:

    I wonder if people at HHR will ever realize that politicians represent their constituents and not HHR. Murkowski was not sent to the Senate to represent Waingro unless he lives in her state. I’m annoyed by her vote but she owed me nothing.

  421. BayernFan says:

    And Collins. If I recall correctly, SHE was the one Republicsn in committee who made it possible for the ACA to advance out of committee. IIRC she could have dealt it a huge if not mortal blow then……but instead voted yes so “the process would move forward”.

    But now…..she can’t be bothered to move THIS process forward. She has always loved the ACA. She is a model RINO.

    Why has no one called HER out on HER glaring hypocrisy?

    You know that. He has not been successfully primaried, so voters vote for him over the Democrat.

    Regarding today, he did the right thing.

    Now retire. Please.

    Jonesy – Wolfe wins. He is too quiet to offend enough people to lose. Sometimes I forget that we even have a Governor here. He is a flaming lib but the GOP legislature does not let him do much. I think he will benefit from the strong anti-Trump mood in the cities and suburbs. It is the opposite of the usual Dems need Presidential races to win theory.

    McCain tried to destroy the GOP yet the ACA, which is a bogus organization rates him highly.

    What seems just generally bad sportsmanship is standard fare for Ball, a wrestling heel brought to real life. The most overbearing father and shameless salesman of $495 sneakers was most recently seen feuding with Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid, who had urged teammate Ben Simmons to dunk on Lonzo.

  451. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Richard Dawkins, a noted atheist, is challenging a Berkeley radio stations cancellation of his event because of his “abusive speech” about Muslims. He pointed out his speeches have been critical of Christians and have not been banned.

    “Dawkins, in response, accused the radio station of not checking its facts or contacting him about the cancellation.

    “If you had consulted me, or if you had done even rudimentary fact-checking, you would have concluded that I have never used abusive speech against Islam,” Dawkins said.

    Instead, he has criticized Islamism, the scientist said, a term used to describe political movements that seek to implement Islamic law and theology.

    “Far from attacking Muslims, I understand — as perhaps you do not — that Muslims themselves are the prime victims of the oppressive cruelties of Islamism, especially Muslim women,” Dawkins continued.
    Dawkins, whose best-seller, “The God Delusion,” attacks all forms of organized religion, also questioned why KPFA had not seemed to mind his anti-Christian remarks.

    “I am known as a frequent critic of Christianity and have never been de-platformed for that. Why do you give Islam a free pass? Why is it fine to criticize Christianity but not Islam?”

  461. Tina says:

  465. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – Sessions is a man of integrity. Why should Sessions stay in an office and endure a scumbag like Trump castigating him? Trump has the right to fire him. Sessions has the right to resign. Both can be true.

However, when it comes to Trump it seems that you have abandoned that in favor of immediately trying to justify everything that he says and does. I expect more from you.

    https://consortiumnews.com/2017/07/24/intel-vets-challenge-russia-hack-evidence/

    Memorandum sent to president, AG, & others yesterday:

    Forensic studies of “Russian hacking” into Democratic National Committee computers last year reveal that on July 5, 2016, data was leaked (not hacked) by a person with physical access to DNC computers, and then doctored to incriminate Russia.

    After examining metadata from the “Guccifer 2.0” July 5, 2016 intrusion into the DNC server, independent cyber investigators have concluded that an insider copied DNC data onto an external storage device, and that “telltale signs” implicating Russia were then inserted.

    Key among the findings of the independent forensic investigations is the conclusion that the DNC data was copied onto a storage device at a speed that far exceeds an Internet capability for a remote hack. Of equal importance, the forensics show that the copying and doctoring were performed on the East coast of the U.S. Thus far, mainstream media have ignored the findings of these independent studies [see here and here].

    or

    intermezzo cafe at the krannert center! that is inside the huge center for the performing arts on campus. it is a great cafe to sit down in! they serve breakfast.

    or

    for lunch or a hearty breakfast go to the courier cafe! it is at 111 north race street. it would be similar to a cracker barrel menu

    all three places are very close to lincoln ave, a major north-south road.

    the krannert center is on goodwin ave off of lincoln — intermezzo cafe is in the main lobby

    strawberry fields is on west springfield off of lincoln ave

    and the courier cafe is just off springfield ave in urbana center

    lincoln ave has a major highway entrance so all will be easy to visit

    Well if a psychological transgender wanted to be other sex, if they joined military then gubment (taxpayers) would pay the $300, 000 to do surgery whore moan treatments, etc. and make them happy…until they dexide they want another $300, 000 surgery to change back…

  546. Trump says:

    Moron, it doesn’t matter how many transgender want to join the military.

    What matters is that, because of these idiotic policies, everyone has to go through sensitivity training, bathroom and sleeping accommodations, and other assorted crap.

    Time and effort better spent on real training.

    Idiot.

  547. Bitterlaw says:

    What branch did you serve in, Trump?

  548. Bitterlaw says:

    I did not say that I supported transgender people joining the military. Of course, you just react without thinking so you probably missed that.

    Still, since you are expert on military affairs and training, I want to know the branch in which you served.

    Thanks, Bitter, Jonesy, and NYCmike for the birthday wishes.

    Mike, as far as Murkowski and Miller, had Miller been a better candidate, he’d be Senator. That Murkowski beat him as a write-in after he’d won the primary says just how bad a candidate Miller really.

    As such, while Murkowski does cast votes I don’t like, I do have to say I’d rather have her in than that seat than MacAdams–the Democrat she and Mikler ran against in 2010.

    marxists believe that economies of scale reduce the cost of production to the point where it is not efficient to allow competition, thus everything should be government owned. it makes sense in theory, it just does not work in practice.

    it has been shown many times that markets with many small players competing sell better goods at lower costs.

    the only issue is the problem of people exploiting public goods, e.g. polluting to reduce their costs, which is why you do need strict regs on that sort of thing.

    for example, were i queen i would make franchising the norm for banks. sure, you could be part of a bnking network for bank of america … but the actual local bank would be owned by a local person who could switch to a different bank group relatively easily if boa became too oppresive.

  594. NYCmike says:

    Regarding Miller – electability was NOT an issue.

    He would have won a 2 person race against Macadams, we all know that. Murk won as a write-in because Alaska has about 250,000 voters, and Murk has probably brought money to each one of them personally.

    Either way, Miller lost, and Murk is bought and paid for by Planned Parenthood, and not a person who is a friend of free markets.

  595. Tina says:

  598. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC supports the right of anybody to run in a primary (as do I but I have never voted for a primary challenger over an incumbent).

    NYC does not support the right of voters to vote for write-in candidates if they prefer that candidate over the other candidates.

  599. DW says:

    Good choice by Trump on the military enlistee requirements. Makes perfect sense. Historically, the military recruiters deny entry to potential recruits who have chronic back problems, poor eyesight, limited hearing, diabetics, and so on. All the more so for those who have paid surgeons to mutilate their genitals.

  600. JC says:

    Murkowski won because she made a deal with the dems to suppress their own party candidate. She won almost the entire democratic base and just enough moderate Republicans to put her over the top. Not to mention that most of the GOP establishment in (and without) the state was aligned with her.

    But the majority of her voters were democrats.

  601. Wes says:

    Miller lost to a write-in, Mike. He got something like 34% of the vote. Was he really guaranteed to beat MacAdams?

    By the way, Miller made a whole host of public faux pas–like having his bodyguards assault a reporter–that let Murkowski gain traction. Do you really think the AKDP wouldn’t have highlighted every stupid thing Miller did to help MacAdams win?

    Of course electability was an issue. That’s why Miller lost. It’s also why he tried to disenfranchise the voters by suing to overturn the election in court.

  602. Wes says:

    Nice conspiracy theory, JC. There was no vote suppression. Everyone was free to vote as he or she liked. Miller was a disaster of a candidate, and Murkowski outmaneuvered him.

    It honestly wasn’t her fault Miller was so bad he became only thr second Senate candidate in history to lose to a write-in.

  603. Bitterlaw says:

    But the majority of her voters were democrats.

    Proof? Why would the Democrats not have just elected the Democrat while the GOP voters were fractured?

  604. Bitterlaw says:

    I understand that it correct that Murk was a write-in. However, she was also an incumbent. I will defer to Wes on the issue but how often are incumbents compelled to run a write-in campaign?

  605. Wes says:

    On paper, Miller looked like a good candidate. In reality, he was anything but.

    Even supporters of Miller here and on other blogs in 2010 were saying Miller was running as if he had the seat already while Murkowski was actually making a case for herself.

    I remember after Murkowski won, Howard Corruption Dean told me it was her fault Miller lost.

    In other words, it was the winner’s fault the loser lost.

    That pretty much encapsulates the Tea Party mindset. It’s always someone else’s fault when voters reject yheir candidates. The Tea Party never takes any blame for deserved losses by its gaggle of disastrous candidates.

  606. Wes says:

    That’s the only time a sitting Senator ran a successful write-in campaign, Bitter.

    Strom Thurmond ran as a write-in in 1954 but wouldn’t be an incumbent till after the election.

    Even so, Miller was the GOP standardbearer. He should have won.

    In 1968, for the same Senate seat, Mike Gravel defeated Ernest Gruening in the primary. Subsequently Gruening ran as an Indy though Gravel narrowly won in November. Twelve years lster, Gruenkng’s son returned the favor by ousting Gravel in the primary. The younger Gruening subsequently lost to–Frank Murkowski.

    As uou can see, the rule is that Alaskans don’t elect Senators rejected in the primary. Joe Miller was a dpecial kind of bad as a candidate, so Lisa Murkowski became the exception.

  607. Wes says:

    I’d prefer to have Rokita be the nominee, but Messer is likely no slouch.

  608. Bitterlaw says:

    To summarize for NYC:

    Murk was an incumbent Senator.

    Murk had to win a write-in campaign.

    Both were true.

  617. jason says:

    NYC is just upset Miller wasn’t actually able to deliver a safe R seat to a Democrat in AK.

  618. jason says:

    Joe Miller, in his own words, admits to being “beyond stupid”.

    “The revelations, reported by the Associated Press and the Web site Alaska Dispatch based on public documents that a judge ordered released on Tuesday, show that Miller was caught using colleagues’ computers for political business and that he lied about it repeatedly before admitting the wrongdoing. Miller was conducting his own poll in an effort to oust a state GOP chairman, and he used his colleagues’ computers to vote in the poll, then erased their computers’ caches to hide what he did.

    “I was beyond stupid,” Miller wrote in a letter of apology included in the documents.

  631. NYCmike says:

    “Actually, Lisa, Mike endorsed the Utah system of having party activists instead of voters choose candidates.”

    -ACTUALLY, I endorsed Utah’s right to legally choose their way of doing things, and then also legally having a way to change their procedure to elect their representatives, when they found the former system less-than-favorable.

  632. NYCmike says:

    Is that “fascist”? “Choice” = “fascism”?

    Therefore, your silly nickname, Il Mikey, though humorous in an adolescent-age conversation, just does not fit this situation, due to the LEGAL steps taken by the citizens of a certain state.

  648. Wes says:

    Mike, I never said Lee did anything illegal by denying Bennett a chance to be on the primary ballot. I did say fascists and authoritsrians such as Mussolini used similar tactics to install people they wanted in power. It’s really simple:

    Voters should have the right to choose their nominees. You disagree and think a cabal of people unrepresentative of the electorate as a whole should choose the nominees. Thus, you earned the moniker. If we simply agreed Utah Republicans as a whole should choose their nominees, we wouldn’t have this discussion. You can’t even concede thst point and instead relying on implying I think Lee engaged in illegal acts to defeat Bennett–a point I never made.

  649. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – Trump is a Democrat at heart BECAUSE HE GAVE MONEY TO SCHUMER AND HILLARY CLINTON.

    WTF! ARE YOU REALLY THIS DENSE?

  650. NYCmike says:

    ” You disagree and think a cabal of people unrepresentative of the electorate as a whole should choose the nominees.”

    -This is incorrect.

    I believe that a political party has a legal right to set up procedures to elect representatives in each state while also maintaining a legal right to change those procedures, which Mussolini etc did not.

    So there is clearly a difference between the two approaches, as evidenced by the state of Utah CHANGING the procedures shortly after that 2010 election year.

  651. NYCmike says:

    ” You can’t even concede thst point and instead relying on implying I think Lee engaged in illegal acts to defeat Bennett–a point I never made.”

    -Implying?

    This is what I STATED:

    “-Wes,

    BREAKING: Republican Senate Refuses To Pass Same Repeal Bill It Passed In 2015

    Pos

  653. NYCmike says:

    Corrected:

    “NYC – Trump is a Democrat at heart BECAUSE HE GAVE MONEY TO SCHUMER AND HILLARY CLINTON, and Romney and McCain, and a whole host of various people from BOTH PARTIES.”

    https://ballotpedia.org/History_of_Donald_Trump%27s_political_donations

    -Who is the DENSE one?

  654. NYCmike says:

    Wes – see comment #674 – Thank you for apologizing to me about your previous incorrect statements about my beliefs.

    I know you just made a mistake, and that you were not lying on purpose.

  655. phoenixrisen says:

    Collins is safe but everyone else of those 7 that voted against clean repeal could be burnt toast. Capito is the only one who may survive. Heller is good as gone in Nevada but that will be offset by Kid Rock knocking off Stabenow in Michigan.

  656. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – You honestly believe that a real Republican would give money to Schumer and Clinton? Seriously? You can’t be helped.

  657. NYCmike says:

    -DW has not been around much – is he participating in this translation job?

  658. NYCmike says:

    He is not a “real” Republican, just like he is not a “real” Democrat.

    He is a registered Republican.

    Kind of like “(Alexander, Capito, Collins, Heller, McCain, Murkowski, Portman)”.

  659. NYCmike says:

    Is it true that the bill they voted “NAY” on was the same one they voted “YAY” on in 2015?

    How could anyone at HHR defend them?

    Sponsler, 34, was arrested for indecency in January after a pupil posted footage on Snapchat showing Sponsler doing a cartwheel and exposing herself in the process.

  683. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “it seems like just when obama’s paris agreement fixes were kicking in trump cancelled them”

    What fixes kicked in? The Paris Agreement exempted China and India and several other countries until 2030. They produce over 80% of the world’s greenhouse gases. In Europe greenhouse gases are rising – including Germany, which has actually increased it coal use, a lot of which they import from the U.S.

    The only country which has substantially reduced greenhouses is the U.S. largely because we have switched to natural gas from coal.

    The only thing the Paris Agreement did was prove that Obama was the world’s biggest stooge, and they took advantage of him.

  684. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The predictions of a sea level rise are based on mathematical models. They have a very poor record of accuracy.

    “But if there is one scientist who knows more about sea levels than anyone else in the world it is the Swedish geologist and physicist Nils-Axel Mörner, formerly chairman of the INQUA International Commission on Sea Level Change. And the uncompromising verdict of Dr Mörner, who for 35 years has been using every known scientific method to study sea levels all over the globe, is that all this talk about the sea rising is nothing but a colossal scare story.

    Despite fluctuations down as well as up, “the sea is not rising,” he says. “It hasn’t risen in 50 years.” If there is any rise this century it will “not be more than 10cm (four inches), with an uncertainty of plus or minus 10cm”. And quite apart from examining the hard evidence, he says, the elementary laws of physics (latent heat needed to melt ice) tell us that the apocalypse conjured up by
    Al Gore and Co could not possibly come about.

    The reason why Dr Mörner, formerly a Stockholm professor, is so certain that these claims about sea level rise are 100 per cent wrong is that they are all based on computer model predictions, whereas his findings are based on “going into the field to observe what is actually happening in the real world”.

    No. The voters in Tennessee chose them. They did not want anybody “better” as defined by NYC.

  686. Bitterlaw says:

    Why be mad at Schumer? He is just one of the Senators Trump supported.

  687. NYCmike says:

    “No. The voters in Tennessee chose them. ”

    -They chose them due to certain votes (“YAY” on repeal) they took.

    Unfortunately, trusting politicians is rarely a winning proposition.

  688. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC is the Voter Whisperer. He knows why people vote for certain politicians.

  689. NYCmike says:

    Judging by your sarcasm, belonging to a political party must NOT mean anything to you.

    Of course, you will follow that sarcasm with your usual “I have never voted for a Democrat, I always vote for the Republican”….usually a 100% voting record for 1 party means there are certain PRINCIPLES that the party, AND ITS MEMBERS, agree on.

    USUALLY.

  690. Proud Obamacon says:

    I agree whole heartedly, yall must primary Alexander LOL!!

  691. Bitterlaw says:

    How about this response? GFY.

    Unlike your hero, Trump, I have never supported or voted for a Democrat. My number one principle is to vote against the Democrat every time. I don’t live in your angry fantasy world where every Republican believes everything in lockstep with me. I wish that every Republican voted the way that I want. They do not. The real world sucks sometimes. It is the height of arrogance to tell the voters in other states that they let you down by how they voted in an election.

  692. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw, as he yap-yap-yaps about “angry fantasy world” and “lockstep” BULLSH*T, BUT just keeps ignoring FACTS:

    They voted “YAY” in 2015, when Obama was President.

  693. NYCmike says:

    ” It is the height of arrogance to tell the voters in other states that they let you down by how they voted in an election.”

    -The politicians let me down, NOT the voters.

    Next time, primary them.

  694. Bitterlaw says:

    Here is a FACT. Repealing Obamacare without a replacement is political suicide. Replacing it with a better system serves the interests of the public.

    Next time, primary them.

    Sure. The Democrats really suffer every time a COD appears.

    For those who want a primary test relating to repealing Obamacare, without a replacement — one is coming up August 15th in Utah. Here are the positions on repeal of the leading candidates:

    Herrod

    “The ACA needs to be completely repealed. Period. And then we must find ways to increase free market forces to reduce costs such HAS’s and insurance choice.”

    Curtis

    “Curtis, like his opponents, is in favor of repealing the Affordable Care Act. But, he said he doesn’t view any current legislation that has been presented as the answer to the issue.
    “Right now, what’s being presented, I view as iterations,” Curtis said. “They’re steps along the way to a better plan, but nothing presented yet is the answer.”

    He said that view makes it hard to answer when he’s asked about whether he would vote for current forms of health care bills in Congress.
    “If I felt I was voting for the current steps and they were done, I would have a hard time voting for what’s there,” Curtis said. “If I felt I was voting for a process that kept moving things forward and kept perfecting it, then that would be easier for me to vote for what’s been out there.”

  704. NYCmike says:

    “718. “Here is a FACT. Repealing Obamacare without a replacement is political suicide. Replacing it with a better system serves the interests of the public.”

    Totally agree.”

    -What’s to agree with? The “political suicide” part, or the “serves the interest of the public” part?

  705. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    By the way, the Deseret News newspaper, owned by the conservative Mormon Church, is politically powerful in Utah. This is its position on the repeal of Obamacare:

    “The latest version of the bill, emerging this week, would allow insurance companies to begin selling cheaper, stripped-down policies to healthy people at low cost. To compensate for this, it would appropriate more federal funds to states to help reduce premiums for everyone else. People also could use health savings accounts, with their built-in tax advantages, to pay premiums.

    It’s an interesting compromise that roughly meets the demands of senators such as Utah’s Mike Lee. People ought to have a wide array of options when choosing health insurance.

    However, the bill also retains spending reductions to Medicaid, requiring that the entitlement program be funded through fixed payments to states, rather than as an open-ended entitlement. Over the next nine years, total spending on Medicaid would drop by $772 billion, according to Congressional Budget Office estimates.

    Medicaid provides a variety of services to the poorest Americans. It helps provide care and equipment for children born with severe disabilities, and long-term care for people with chronic illnesses. It allows patients to live independently and choose their physicians, and to obtain preventative care.

    While we support fiscal accountability, reducing the funding for these services would hurt the poorest citizens and not be in the nation’s best interest. Society would end up paying for the health needs of the poor one way or another, and without proper Medicaid funding the costs are bound to be higher in the long run as people allow health problems to fester.

    McConnell is in a hurry to pass the bill. He hopes to bring it to a vote next week. We don’t understand the rush, especially for something as important as this.”

    ———————

    No, they just illegally unmask political opponents, bribe for votes, leak classified intelligence, set up pay-for-play operations, appoint activist ‘judges’, whitewash criminal investigations, create fake investigations to destroy people, target political enemies with bureaucracy created regulations that exists to stamp out competition and maintain their power, even at the expense of the country…

    I could go on and on.

    Bitter, you truly are a stooge, aren’t you. A mindless sheep that the parties rely upon to continuously keep themselves in power. That establishment you defend so much…like the ones who got elected promising to repeal obamacare and then voted to save it yesterday…the politicians you insist need to keep being re-elected…like ones who were appointed to the senate by their father or groomed into the ruling class…

    They don’t give a f**k about you or your family. Nor the country. Nor conservative ideas. These are people who were born and raised in the swamp culture of D.C. We now have a president who is willing to sign every piece of conservative legislation that comes across his desk, and they refuse to act.

    Because they’re not interested in conservative agendas, but only in maintaining their own power.

    You’re an old dinosaur, who represents the old, loosing-wing of the party. The rest of us? We decided to move on and fight back. You love to talk about deadenders, well I can’t think of a more atrocious group of deadenders than the GOPe. They don’t win budget battles. They don’t halt liberal agendas. They certainly don’t advance conservative agendas. They pre-surrender to any and all cultural issues.

    The party you advocate for is a party of deadenders.

  716. Bitterlaw says:

    The rest of us? We decided to move on and fight back

    Zzzzzzzzz. If there are so many of you, why don’t you control the Republican Party? It should be easy with such an army of supporters. You know how you get into the Establishment? You win elections. Get to work.

  717. Bitterlaw says:

    the choices were supposed to be hillary or jeb

    either way, there would have been tpp, paris accords, obamacare, high taxes, no pipelines, high gas prices, no coal and an open border.

    jeb probably would have picked a less conservative scotus than gorsuch but possibly gorsuch, so that might be the same

    but the only real difference i can see is that jeb would taken a tougher line on isis than hillary.

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/heres-what-polls-say-about-a-transgender-military-ban/article/2629746

    A poll conducted less than one month prior to President Trump’s decision on Wednesday to reverse an Obama-era policy that allowed transgender individuals to serve openly in the military found more people opposed than supported it.

    Rasmussen surveyed 1,000 likely voters on the topic in late June, almost exactly one year after then-Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced the shift last summer.

    “The U.S. Department of Defense now allows transgender people, those who identify with and want to live as the opposite sex, to serve openly in the military,” the survey said. “Is this decision good for the military, bad for the military or does it have no impact?”

    Only 23 percent of people surveyed responded that it was good, while 31 percent said it was bad. The largest bloc of respondents, 38 percent, said it has no impact.

    i don’t necessarily agree with tina on “continuous war in the middle east as government policy”

    but it sure seems like war is pretty continuous

  722. lisab says:

    the problem with allowing trans in the military is not about the person’s character, i am sure many are patriots who want to serve their country

    the problem is that many want to go in and then get the very expensive surgery on the taxpayer’s dime. in other words, get the surgery in exchange for 4 years service.

    that is just not a good deal for the taxpayer.

  723. lisab says:

    when i served in the peace corps i had a very thorough physical and dental checkup.

    no volunteer was accepted until every physical and dental problem was fixed … because once you are in you are covered 100% by the usa government and they did not want volunteers coming in with problems

    they sent me to hawaii for three weeks when a guy pushed me down a flight of stairs and i needed a tooth splint because i hit my mouth on a metal railing

    that was probably a $3,000 cost to the government. a m2f transition is going to be tens of thousands of dollars

    “Does the Deep State hold meetings on the grassy knoll or do they just hang out at the Illuminati clubhouse?”

    -Bitterlaw,

    Are you trying to say that there are groups of people who receive government employment/contracts who won’t do all that they can to make sure the gravy train keeps running?

    Little naive, don’t you think?

  725. NYCmike says:

    I do NOT have an issue with a transgendered person serving in the military.

    I do have one requirement: Become transgendered BEFORE or AFTER you have served your time.

    If you sign up as a male, you stay a male until your service commitment is complete. Same if you sign up as a female.

    OTHERWISE, GFY!

    The media had that Special Forces soldier all over yesterday. I do not know why, other than to confuse the issue at hand.

    If a female changes to male, then chooses to try out and become a Special Forces soldier, more power to them. If they can make it thru, they will become a Special Forces soldier. If they can’t make it thru, they don’t.

    Very simple.

    utopian socialists are small government socialists.

    for example, i would NOT support the government taking over GM but i would support companies being required to give 50% of their stock to the employees. even better, i would support companies being required to give their employees highly diversified mutual funds of stock in usa companies. so that the employees had skin in the game and benefitted from company growth.

    No. You can’t conclude that. You can only speculate. Your choice in that race, COD, gave us Senator Coons. He will never vote for any Republican bill on any issue and will serve for life.

  743. SoHope says:

    The republicans are failing in pointing out that of the 22 million that will lose coverage…70%+ of that number – 15 million would be people who don’t want and are currently being forced to buy it because of the individual mandate.

  746. SoHope says:

    Being against repealing the individual mandate because millions would lose coverage is like being against outlawing slavery because millions of slaves would lose their jobs

  747. Bitterlaw says:

    Are you trying to say that there are groups of people who receive government employment/ contracts who won’t do all that they can to make sure the gravy train keeps running? Little naive, don’t you think?

    No. I am saying that the idea of a bunch of covert government functionaries conspiring to do everything – including murder – to hold on to some form of power that they cannot even enjoy openly is absurd. People that motivated don’t work for the government. Unless the conspiracy can be accomplished Monday to Friday between 9:00 and 5:00 with 20 vacation days plus Federal holidays, you can’t attract good help.

    Trump is crashing in Rasmussen. He needs to leave Sessions alone and focus on the economy.

  751. Jonesy says:

    Grassley came out today and said he would not consider a new Appointment for AG for the rest of 2017.

    He gave Trump a out on Sessions, and excuse to keep him thanks to the Iowa Senator.

    SoHope – Jul’s condemnation always rings hollow with me. Don’t bring a # to a street fight.

  753. Bitterlaw says:

    SoHope – I watched a show about Mary Magdalene yesterday. Apparently, she was not a prostitute. She moved to France where she essentially ruled the Church on behalf of her husband, Jesus. Not exactly the story I learned.

  754. SoHope says:

    Damn Illuminati

  755. lisab says:

    well, there is not really any mention of her being a prostitute in the gospels.

  756. Bitterlaw says:

    I wonder if Deep State, the Illuminati, the Koch brothers and the Bilderbergs have a softball league.

  757. Bitterlaw says:

    lisab – Apparently, 95% of all women in Judea were named Mary/Miriam. It lead to some confusion.

  758. Bitterlaw says:

    There is no denying that there are traitors in the US intelligence and other agencies who do anything in their power to stop Trump.

    Just as there were lots of individuals in the GOP who did everything in their power to stop Trump.

    That they cannot organize a one-car parade is a different story.

    Bitter,
    Lost 75lbs so far this year and learned “Anna’s” ID. He quite literally beat his ex girlfriend nearly to death in a drunken rage. She’ll never fully recover. He’ll never run for State Representative again.

  763. Bitterlaw says:

    75 pounds? Are you sick? That seems like a lot.

  764. JulStol says:

    Nope. Just diet/exercise. No soda, sweet tea, or alcohol. Another 30lbs or so to go

  765. NYCmike says:

    Jul,

    Have you been traveling much?

    If you haven’t, you probably lost them in PA, which isn’t that big of a place.

    When Ca$h Cow gets back from Wisconsin, she could probably assist you in searching for them, as long as Miss Daisy does not have too many chores for Mr. Walt.

  766. NYCmike says:

    In all seriousness, that is wonderful, if it makes you feel better.

    The multiple women might enjoy the added vigor.

    NYC,
    Been down to Georgia for the special. Drove through WV a couple times. Visited the Peachoid in Frank Underwood’s district. Been doing some fishing down the Jersey Shore. Life is good.

    Just the one woman. She’s a great travel companion and she lost 30lbs herself.

  775. Phil says:

    Graham warns Trump not to fire Mueller.

    Great. Graham gives Trump a choice:

    Fire Mueller and establishment Republicans will join with Democrats to take you down.

    or

    Leave Mueller in place so he and his merry band of Clinton lawyers can go all over the place until they find a “crime” to take you down.

    Screwed either way. Perfect.

  776. Trump says:

    If only Graham’s hand could cash a check that his mouth blabs.

  777. jason says:

    How many transgender persons are there?

  778. Trump says:

    Establishment Republicans already worked with Democrats to take Trump down.

    How did that work out for the losers?

  779. Trump says:

    Two, actually.

    Another bunch of nut cases who think they are.

  780. Trump says:

    It seems a self-modulating population too, what with about 50% attempting suicide.

  781. jason says:

    Yep, Trump is between a rock and hard place with Mueller.

    But I don’t think he can survive the political cost of firing Mueller.

    That is why I keep going back to the huge mistake Sessions made in recusing himself.

    I think if Mueller’s conclusions are overwhelmingly partisan, Trump has a better chance of surviving them than firing Mueller now.

    Let’s hope he is not a Walsh.

  782. Phil says:

    Didn’t work out at all at the ballot box. The people got the last word. This leaves the voters out entirely. What is happening now doesn’t involve the voters at all. This is coup – an out and out inside fix – complete railroad.

  783. Phil says:

    Yeah, as Jason just intimated, Sessions’ recusal opened the door.

  784. Trump says:

    It is circle jerk.

    It is another dud like all other duds.

  785. Phil says:

    Circle jerk?

    Mueller and his lefty lawyers aren’t just jerking off.

  786. Trump says:

    Remember the amount of digital ink and tv pixels wasted on the brokered convention?

    You’d have thought Trump would be lucky to get 1 delegate at the convention.

  787. Trump says:

    There is nothing to investigate, so yes, they are jerking off.

  788. Trump says:

    Remember how Comey firing was going to result in a “firestorm”?

    Such a respected bi-partisan figure too. The most powerful man in Washington, so they assured me.

  789. Trump says:

    Hers the reality.

    5 percent of the population thinks Russia is an issue, 80% of the media thinks so.

  790. Phil says:

    There is nothing to investigate.

    I agree completely.

    They are manufacturing something. It’s a railroad and all of Washington is in on it.

  791. Bitterlaw says:

    I approve of Sessions’ recusal. If he believed that he could not serve in regard to the investigation, he had an obligation as an attorney to do so. He could have resigned as well but I have no problem with him recusing himself. Trump’s campaign is not the only issue he has to deal with. There is that small matter or actually being Attorney General for other issues.

  792. Trump says:

    All of Washington does not have much influence.

  793. Trump says:

    Sessions is an idiot who has done nothing since taking office.

  794. Trump says:

    He is an ineffective person who got bullied by Chuck schumer.

  795. Phil says:

    Not talking about influence with the voters or even with public opinion in general. They tried that. Doesn’t work.

    I am talking about manipulating the legal system to get the desired goal and we all know their goal.

  796. Trump says:

    Everyone knows there is nothing to investigate. Even sessions.

    Remember Comey testimony?

    Yet, he got bullied by Dems.

  797. Trump says:

    They tried to manipulate the legal and political system to achieve their goals in the elections too.

    How did that turn out?

  798. Trump says:

    Voters are not paying attention to all the DC chatter because Russia is not an issue to them.

    If the morons do anything to make it an issue that catches voters’ attention, you will see the backlash.

  799. Phil says:

    Agree they have gotten no traction on Russia beyond outside of the MSM chattering classes. Nothing there.

    Mueller knows there is nothing. It is why he has moved on to “finances” He is a prosecutor in search of wrongdoing – looking everywhere with absolutely no parameters.

    It stinks.

  800. Phil says:

    ….and Mueller’s “team” is a whole nest of Obama and Clinton hacks.

    More stink.

  801. Trump says:

    That is why he will be fired. In due time. With no consequences.

    Voters didn’t care about trump ” finances” then.

    However, hopefully as more people start thinking for themselves (hope springs eternal) maybe there will be fewer and fewer jobs for them.

  814. Wes says:

    Actually, Duelian, there are only two conclusions we csn definitely reach about thd 2010 DE Senate race:

    1) Not existing, Senztor O’Donnell will never vote for ACA repeal.

    2) As a leftist wigh a lifetime seat in a solidly Dem seat, neither will Senator Coons.

    There’s still as much proof Castle would have opposed ACA repeal as there is that Christine O’Donnell ever had a chance to win a Senate election in Delaware.

  815. jason says:

    Evidently the NYT let a bunch of copy editors go… hard to see where these people will find jobs.

  816. jason says:

    Look wes, the deadenders would rather have a commie like Coons who votes against their interests 100% of the time than Castle who voted against their interests 5% of the time.

  817. jason says:

    approve of Sessions’ recusal. If he believed that he could not serve in regard to the investigation, he had an obligation as an attorney to do so”

    Zzzzzzz… well, duhhh, ok.

    But the question is WHY he believed that since there was zero reason for him to recuse himself unless he was actually in collusion with the Russians.

    He had a moment of weakness because of all the media pressure, he should have known better.

    I bet he regrets it.

  818. jason says:

    This whole mess is Session’s doing.

    However, while I think he deserves to be fired, it would just keep fueling the fire.

  823. NYCmike says:

    jason,

    It was not a hostile question, don’t know why you are taking it as such.

  824. jason says:

    More evidence sugar is bad for you…..

    Thankfully, my diet consists mostly of pork fat.

    “Men who consume a lot of added sugar in drinks, cakes and confectionery run an increased risk of depression, according to a new study.

    Researchers from University College London (UCL) looked at sugar in the diet and common mental health problems in a very large cohort of 5,000 men and 2,000 women recruited for the Whitehall II study in the 1980s.

    They found a strong association between consuming higher levels of sugar and depression in men. Men with the highest intake – more than 67g a day – had a 23% increased chance of suffering a common mental disorder after five years than those who consumed the lowest levels of sugar – less than 39.5g.”

  825. jason says:

    “It was not a hostile question, don’t know why you are taking it as such.”

    My answer was not hostile, why are you taking it as such?

  826. NYCmike says:

    “My answer was not hostile, why are you taking it as such?”

    -So, where most people say “Have a great day!”, you say “If you don’t know, GFY.”.

    Got it! 🙂

  827. Trump says:

    If sessions grows a pair and learns to punch back twice as hard at dems, I am good with him.

    He is a fine person who got unnecessarily rattled by the dems.

  828. jason says:

    o, where most people say “Have a great day!”, you say “If you don’t know, GFY.”.

    Wow, how long have you been here? A little slow on the uptake, huh?

  829. Trump says:

    Now that the dems say that sessions is the greatest thing since sliced bread, they’ll love it when he gets comey for leaking classified info.

    Ha ha ha

    Who am I kidding?

  830. Bitterlaw says:

    “Men who consume a lot of added sugar in drinks, cakes and confectionery run an increased risk of depression, according to a new study.

    But depression is not real. It is just being weak. That is like saying these men have an increased risk of turning into an elf.

  831. Wes says:

    The As shole’s Guide to Philadelphia.

    Appropriate.

  832. Wes says:

    Bitter must have a psychology degree now since he can diagnose depression as nonexistent.

    868. “Maybe people who are depressed seek out things that are quick fixes to make them feel better like sugar, chocolate, cakes, soda rather than these things being the cause.”

    For some of us depression is actually caused by not having access sugar, chocolate, cakes and soda.

    Soda makes us happy, don’t you remember the “pepsi generation” adds. Frankly people would be less depressed if they stuck to the traditional beer and pizza diet.

    Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), in a letter to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, said the requests were made without specific justifications on why the information was needed.

    “We have found evidence that current and former government officials had easy access to U.S. person information and that it is possible that they used this information to achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information,” Nunes wrote in the letter to Coats.

    The letter was provided to The Hill from a source in the intelligence community.

    In March, Nunes disclosed that he had seen data suggesting Trump campaign and transition officials were having their names unmasked by departing officials in the Obama White House.

    National Security Adviser Susan Rice and CIA Director John Brennan have acknowledged making such requests though they insisted the requests were for legitimate work reasons.

    “GOWDY: Have you also either approved or denied requests of others that a U.S. person’s name be unmasked?

    BRENNAN: I don’t recall in my tenure at CIA any decision on unmasking for someone else coming up to my level. It would have been — that decision would have been made at a lower level within the agency.

    GOWDY: Are you aware of any request within the community that were denied?

    BRENNAN: I — I do not — I didn’t have visibility into requests that were being made across the government so I don’t — I don’t recall one that I was denied.

    GOWDY: Do you recall any U.S. ambassadors asking that names be unmasked?

    BRENNAN: I don’t — I don’t know. Maybe it’s ringing a vague bell but I’m not — I could not answer with any confidence.”

    Lady Gaga just made he best argument for the new policy. Personally I don’t have a problem with transsexuals being let into the military on a case-by-case basis. If they can shot an M-16/M-4 accurately, follow orders, and be tough in combat, let them serve. Do not believe the military should be required to pay for any trans-sexual related surgery.

    By Kenneth W. Starr July 26 at 6:54 PM

    Kenneth W. Starr, a former U.S. solicitor general and federal judge, served as independent counsel in the Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky investigations during the Clinton administration.

    “Mr. President, please cut it out. Tweet to your heart’s content, but stop the wildly inappropriate attacks on the attorney general. An honorable man whom I have known since his days as a U.S. attorney in Alabama, Jeff Sessions has recently become your piñata in one of the most outrageous — and profoundly misguided — courses of presidential conduct I have witnessed in five decades in and around the nation’s capital.

    What you are doing is harmful to your presidency and inimical to our foundational commitment as a free people to the rule of law.
    The attorney general is not — and cannot be — the president’s “hockey goalie,” as new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci described Sessions’s job.

    In fact, the president isn’t even his client.
    To the contrary, the attorney general’s client is ultimately “We the People,” and his fidelity has to be not to the president but to the Constitution and other laws of the United States. Indeed, the attorney general’s job, at times, is to tell the president “no” because of the supervening demands of the law.

    When it comes to dealing with the nation’s top legal officer, you will do well to check your Twitter weapons at the Oval Office door.

And it hasn’t taken long for news producers and editors to realize that the story is fadin

    Lying to congress is an issue, no matter under oath or not.

  900. Tina says:

    Much to the dismay of Trump’s haters, Kushner’s account of events even further proves just how far the media has stretched the collusion story. When the campaign received an official note of congratulations from Russian President Vladimir Putin the day after the election, Kushner had to send Dimitri Simes of the Center for the National Interest an email asking for the name of the Russian ambassador so that he could reach out and confirm the message’s authenticity.

    Meanwhile, the good citizens of Baltimore are learning that when you neuter the police, your city can turn into a killing zone.

    “Baltimore asks FBI for help: ‘Murder is out of control’

    (CNN)The number of homicides in Baltimore this year is soaring — reaching 100 before the end of April for the first time in nearly two decades — and the mayor is asking the FBI for more help.
    “Murder is out of control,” said Mayor Catherine Pugh, at her weekly news briefing Wednesday. “There are too many guns on the streets. We’re looking for all the help we can get.”
    The mayor met recently with the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Baltimore office and asked for additional agents to help local police battle violent crime in the city, according to the mayor’s spokesman, Anthony McCarthy. He said that could either mean bringing in more FBI agents from other field offices across the country or reassigning agents already in Baltimore to work with local police investigating violent crime.
    Three people were killed in the city Monday — raising the number of homicides this year to 101, according to police. And with the warmer months approaching, it’s only expected to get worse.
    “The summers in Baltimore tend to be very violent,” McCarthy said. “And the mayor wants to get a handle on all the murders, the flood of guns on the streets and the gang activity.”
    The mayor is also asking the FBI to share its newest crime-fighting technologies with Baltimore Police, according to McCarthy. He said Mayor Pugh is hoping to make an announcement about additional federal resources sometime next week.”

    The crime wave and murder epidemic sweeping America’s urban communities is attributable to the permissive policies of former president Obama. Whatever I think of Trump, he is an improvement over Obama.

    On one hand, appreciate him disrupting the status quo and changing the economy and other aspects of the country in a better direction, but he needs to use better judgment.

    The problem is if you truly want change, you are going to have to have someone who has his temperament. It takes a real pit pull to drive the parasites out. I like most of his policies, but not his personality.

  947. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Here is what the American people expect for health care: “Everyone should have unlimited access to whatever health care they want with a $20 co-pay only.”

    Its a new freebie. In California the legislature came close to approved a single payer system that would cost more than the whole state’s budget. Don’t talk to people about costs and the fact the system is financially unsustainable. Do you really believe hippie boomers and spoiled millennials can understand the words “we can’t afford it”?

    The passengers on the health care Titanic won’t run to the lifeboats until after it hits the iceberg.

    Missouri: 36% of the primary electorate went for Akin….that is a LOT of “deadenders”.

    Nevada: Angle gets 40% of the primary electorate…..AGAIN, LOTS of “deadenders”.

    Colorado: 51.6% of the primary electorate goes to Buck…..numbers of “deadenders” are growing.

    Indiana: Mourdock, a stade-wide-elected official, unseats an incumbent with over 60% of the primary vote….number of “deadenders” marked for HATRED seems to growing rather large…..

  995. NYCmike says:

    MAYBE, just MAYBE, incumbent politicians should vote how they campaign…….radical thought……

  996. NYCmike says:

    “McCain would be irrelevant if the true Deadenders had not tossed away winnable Senate races.”

    -He would be irrelevant if he allowed Pence to be the 51st vote……but, alas, a picture is worth a thousand words.

  997. NYCmike says:

    Where is jason to place blame, since VOTES HAVE BEEN TAKEN!?!?

    How will the HFC be blamed for this? Or Ted Cruz?

    I am sure that WES will have some great reasons/excuses as well…….

  998. NYCmike says:

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/republicans-repeal-and-replace-the-tea-party/article/2629829

    “Even when Republicans control the White House and both houses of Congress, liberalism remains the default ideology of the federal government.”

  999. NYCmike says:

    Beware that link, as picture may make you gag….McCain with media tape recorders in front of his mouth.

  1000. Robbie says:

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am worn out from all of this winning.

  1001. NYCmike says:

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/watch-senators-gasp-as-mccain-votes-against-obamacare-repeal/article/2629971

    -I guess he didn’t even respect McConnell enough to let him know…..imagine if Ted Cruz or Rand Paul “surprised” the leadership like this….what would Bitterlaw, jason, Wes, etc be saying?

  1002. Robbie says:

    McCain sank a crappy bill. I would have vote yes, but there was never going to be a compromise bill that emerged from the House/Senate conference.

    Healthcare is the Bermuda Triangle. Parties enter as a majority and exit as a minority. Move on to taxes and hope it doesn’t blow up as well.

  1003. Robbie says:

    If Trump had a 50% approval rating, he would have gotten the votes for repeal last night. Instead, he’s got a 39% approval rating that doesn’t make anyone fear him. That’s among the reasons I harped on Trump’s approval rating this past Spring. He threw away his power to cajole when he became fixated on wiretap tweets and all of the other nonsense.

    On top of that, Trump’s closing argument in the lead up to the healthcare vote was “My AG is weak”. Not exactly the smartest message for repeal and replace.

  1004. Weeble says:

    🙂 I wobble, but I don’t fall down! 🙂

  1005. NYCmike says:

    “I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am worn out from all of this winning.”

    -I know I am pretty relaxed about things….the President is doing ALL I expected from a not-ideological individual. I did not want him as the lead person on legislation, due to his previous dalliances with the Democrat party, and I said this hundreds of times leading up to the election, and afterward.

    Congress has issues, but thanks to our Founding Fathers, things happen slowly. FOR A REASON. I am not as downtrodden as many here, do NOT see impending doom on the horizon, and would be willing to grow the majority in the Senate.

    In regards to McCain, I am still waiting to hear any criticism from the likes of Robbie for his vote last night, which obviously took Robbie’s beloved leadership by surprise.

  1006. NYCmike says:

    Of course, I will look to “the really (SELF-PROCLAIMED) smart people at HHR” to do something for me.

    Please tell me which principles of the Republican Party I should look for, as limited government seems to be one which is not highly regarded by several of them.

  1007. I love Trump says:

    This isn’t good for the democrats either. So people are going to vote for someone who supports Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer? They voted for Obamacare. One more thing, John McCain is a liar. There’s nothing honorable about being a lying fake conservative.

  1008. Jonesy says:

    Robbie came out of hiding, I see

  1009. Jonesy says:

    We lost the House Robbie? Are you happy?

    GOPe will not get their pork after 2018?

    Dem house will guarantee a Trump Second Term

  1010. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    1031 & 1032
    Now criticism is hate in your opinion. Pathetic, but not surprising from you.
    When McCain campaigned for re-election last year, he had a commercial saying that ObamaCare had to be repealed. Now, no. He has run as a conservative in each of his election cycles and then,in DC, he has tempered his so-called conservatism. A phony politically.
    My point,which you conveniently ignore, is that AZ is a Red State and could have done much better over the years by sending a true conservative Senator to DC.

  1011. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:

    Robbie came out of hiding, I see

    – Yeah, I was hiding at work you stupid idiot.

    How’s your unrequited love for Trump working out for you?

  1012. Jonesy says:

    We would lose the Senate also, if not for sheer luck on a great cycle.

    Heller is gone, maybe one in AZ if open, but we will win Mo, and Ind for sure.

  1013. Jonesy says:

  1015. Jonesy says:

    1050. Well said Sheeple.

    Have a EO, put all of congress on Obamacare. Things would change

    Another Michigan Poll showing Kid Rock Richie ahead in the 2018 Senate race:

    Robbie are you still predicting a Second Term for Hillary?

  1018. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:

    Work? At the Airport bar? Or flying the fatcats on Cessna’s

    – Having a tough day, Jonesy? Buck up. It’s only going to get worse for your man Trump. We’re nowhere near the bottom of this abhorrent presidency.

  1019. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    July 28, 2017 at 10:13 am
    Robbie are you still predicting a Second Term for Hillary?

    – You’re firing blanks today, Jonesy. Much like your man Trump.

  1020. NYCmike says:

    Jonesy,

    Stop over-reacting like the Robbie’s of the world.

    They took a vote. We saw who took their campaign promises to heart, and who used it for their own power.

    We do NOT know if the House or Senate will be lost. Let’s work to make sure it is not.

  1021. NYCmike says:

    “– You’re firing blanks today, Jonesy. Much like your man Trump.”

    -Ok, obviously the civic education received in Kentucky is sub-standard.

    Trump does NOT vote on legislation, Robbie. He would either sign a bill, or veto a bill, AFTER it gets through Congress. Please get it straight.

    He has done his job, picking judges, getting rid of regulations, picking good people to head federal departments.

    Hopefully, Congress will get its act together.

  1022. NYCmike says:

    Robbie is as happy today as he was the day after Romney lost in 2012.

  1023. Trump says:

    The retard robbed is sticking with Hillary 374

  1024. Jonesy says:

    Mike, I still predict the GOP will hold Senate.

  1025. NYCmike says:

    “2018 is shaping up as a non-incumbent year.”

    -Or as a no-political-experience-year.

  1026. Bitterlaw says:

    My point,which you conveniently ignore, is that AZ is a Red State and could have done much better over the years by sending a true conservative Senator to DC.

    Zzzzzzzz. My point, which the McCain-haters never answer, is why all the ‘true conservative” Arizona voters can’t take McCain out in a primary? Why does he keep getting re-elected to the Senate? Hint – Arizona voters want him in the Senate.

  1027. Jonesy says:

    Robbie wanted Romney to Win, because he is a RINO

  1028. Jonesy says:

    Utah Robbie has his crystal ball. LOL.

    What month is the Brokered Convention, Moron?

  1029. Robbie says:

    NYCmike says:
    July 28, 2017 at 10:18 am

    We do NOT know if the House or Senate will be lost. Let’s work to make sure it is not.

    – The reality of the Donald Trump presidency has become a huge albatross for Republicans. He has shown himself to be unprepared, unqualified, and incompetent. Just as bad, he has employed a “lord of the flies” atmosphere in his White House that has turned the place into a nest of vipers looking out for themselves and not the country.

    If Pence were to become President (he won’t), Republicans could probably gain House and Senate seats in 2018. With Trump, we’re not near the bottom yet.

  1030. NYCmike says:

    I predict the House will also remain Republican.

    I HOPE all of the leadership, in both chambers, is removed, for MORE CONSERVATIVE, COMBATIVE, yet humble, individuals. It is a different time.

    I will actually give kudos to McConnell and Ryan, as they were in a tough spot, BUT they got the votes taken. McCain showing his true political self is an accomplishment.

  1031. Trump says:

    GOp is likely to gain 1-2 seats in senate.

    Could have won 4 more, and avoided losing 1-2, but cannot knock off thr Trump-state Dems. Because they keep lying to their own voters.

  1032. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    July 28, 2017 at 10:25 am
    Utah Robbie has his crystal ball. LOL.
    What month is the Brokered Convention, Moron?

    – Robert Bork was in line to become Chief Justice had he been confirmed in 1987.

  1033. Jonesy says:

    Can we cool it with Retard on here. I do donate to special ed Charities

  1034. Jonesy says:

    1072. Good one. What a zinger ,374. Better get a cocktail, just not before you Fly.

  1035. Trump says:

    The retard Robbie is in full force today.

    Ass hole, pence is never going to be president.

    I am glad trump keeps fu cking you every day.

  1036. NYCmike says:

    ” With Trump, we’re not near the bottom yet.”

    -Good omen.

    You are overly emotional about Trump. Insurance premiums will go up again, Trump’s tweets about that very thing will show him to be more in tune with Americans than the Democrats and McCain, Murk, Capito.

  1037. Robbie says:

    NYCmike says:
    July 28, 2017 at 10:22 am
    Robbie is as happy today as he was the day after Romney lost in 2012.

    – Nope. I’m actually very disappointed that Republicans have all but thrown away their one chance in a generation to use unified government to achieve substantive reform.

    I’m just much farther along in the grieving process than you are. You’re still in denial.

  1038. NYCmike says:

    “– The reality of the Donald Trump presidency has become a huge albatross for Republicans.”

    -LOL.

    He has done what a President is able to do.

    He can’t sign legislation if it doesn’t reach his desk.

  1039. Trump says:

    GOP is not near bottom yet, with trump.

    What’s the downside?

  1040. Jonesy says:

    1070. Mike, I wish I were more optimistic. But GOP Senate Traitors will bring the House down.

    No way we hold without Repeal, but Pelosi will go crazy, and guarantee a Trump Second Term.

  1041. Robbie says:

    NYCmike says:

    -You’re the one who seems emotionally invested in Trump, not me. You have defended his idiocy at every turn.

    And by the way, Collins, not Capito.

  1042. Bitterlaw says:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4739512/Couple-commit-suicide-health-care-costs.html#comments

    The comments are interesting. Some blame Trump for trying to repeal Obamacare. Others blame the GOP for not repealing Obamacare.

  1043. Trump says:

    Retard Robbie is disappointed.

    Trump is doing something right.

  1044. NYCmike says:

    “I’m just much farther along in the grieving process than you are. You’re still in denial.”

    -Denial?

    I pay 18,000 a year for health insurance for my family. There is no denial available for that kind of ca$h.

    Reality will set in. This is a blip in time.

    Premiums will go up again, and more tweets will follow, placing blame where YOU ARE UNABLE, on Democrats and Obamacare.

  1045. Jonesy says:

    Mike, Robbie’s heroes at the MSM will put Obamacare implosion on GOP. Senate RINO’s will provide cover for Dems.

    Judges being confirmed should be the focus at this point

  1046. BayernFan says:

    This ACA thing keeps surviving over and over and over again because of one voter. One idiot. One person who thinks he/she is smarter than everyone else…..and winds up outsmarting him/herself. This time, it was that biggest hypocrite scumbag McCain. That rant of his was nothing but typical hot air from that moron….whose entire goal in life is to please his captors so they will love him.

  1047. NYCmike says:

    “And by the way, Collins, not Capito.”

    -Thanks for that correction. Read it quick, made a mistake.

  1048. Bitterlaw says:

    Can we cool it with Retard on here. I do donate to special ed Charities

    Jonesy – You and I will disagree on many things. However, I have asked Trump repeatedly to stop using that vile, hateful word. He is a hateful bastard with no sense of decency so he continues to use it.

    Your donations and work on behalf of those people is commendable.

  1049. Robbie says:

    NYCmike says:

    -LOL.
    He has done what a President is able to do.
    He can’t sign legislation if it doesn’t reach his desk.

    – NYCMike, you exist in this odd reality where the Congress can go along and act as if the president of their own party isn’t self-immolating. It doesn’t work that way.

    Big ticket items need presidential leadership and Trump isn’t able to provide it. He is illiterate when it comes to the details and he doesn’t even care about them.

    And without a president to settle policy disputes, you get what we’ve seen. But sure, side with the lifelong liberal Democrat pretending to be a Republican over the actual Republicans.

  1050. Jonesy says:

    Bill Mitchell, who predicted a Trump win, unlike Utah Robbie, is roasting McCain today at Twitter.

    Some of the photos are brutal. Laughing with Schumer..

  1051. Jonesy says:

    1089. But Bush 2 did such a great job in his second term, right Utah?

    Lost the Senate, House, Harriet Myers, Iraq, opened the door for a Marxist to be POTUS.

    Still have the W Photo in your Wallet, Wobbles?

  1052. Jonesy says:

    Right Bitter. I am anti-PC for sure, but disabled kids are some the most optimistic and friendly people in the world

  1053. Trump says:

    Trump exposes the GOP for the liars they are. Every day. Nowhere to hide.

    It’s a good thing.

    – Go spend 5 years in a POW camp where your arms are broken so badly you can’t raise them above your shoulders.

    Then you and moron Bill Mitchell can come back and call McCain a traitor.

  1055. Jonesy says:

    Bay, McCain was covering for Heller, I think

  1056. Jonesy says:

    1086. Many her gave you heat for going after McCain this week, due to him being a War Hero, but you were vindicated.

    McCain’s hatred of trump, was more important to him than the Middle Class.

    Now he wants more Military Spending. F$%k the Pentagon

  1057. NYCmike says:

    “Trump isn’t able to provide it.”

    -Tell me something I don’t know.

    He was not my choice in the primary, EXACTLY because of this, and other reasons.

    Once he won the primary, I looked for him to do one thing: DEFEAT HILLARY.

    Since then, he has done more than I could have imagined in regards to Gorsuch, cabinet picks, and rolling back regulations.

    I have not changed in regard to legislation: Republican leadership should be competent enough to get conservative-oriented legislation through Congress.

    Why do they need their hands held by someone who is not interested in a conservative ideology?

  1058. Cash Cow TM says:

    Sandy Eggo,

    RE: you comment about the large number of gays in the navy…

    That my be true, but I would think very few gays are transgenders who want sex change operations (SCOs).

  1059. Jonesy says:

    How many Vietnam POW’s came home, and did not go into politics, Slobbie? Sam Johnson R-Tex, was a POW, does he get on the House floor and rip GOP voters?

    McCain almost had to resign over the Keating Scandal, but goes after Trump’s Character?

  1060. Diamond Jim says:

    MC

  1061. Jonesy says:

    If McCain did this to President Jeb, Robbie would be slamming him too

  1062. Cash Cow TM says:

    An are most SCO female to male or male to female?

    I bet it is lopsided male to female…
    and I have my own cow theory as to why…

  1063. NYCmike says:

    “– Go spend 5 years in a POW camp where your arms are broken so badly you can’t raise them above your shoulders.”

    -Stop with this line of reasoning please. It is a ridiculous reason for not being able to criticize someone who clearly should be criticized.

    McCain did NOT volunteer to get captured. He was shot down by the enemy.

    If he could have changed that, I am sure he gladly would have done so.

  1064. NYCmike says:

    “– NYCMike, you exist in this odd reality where the Congress can go along and act as if the president of their own party isn’t self-immolating.”

    -Congress is its own branch of government. The fact they need a “daddy” to show them how to do their job should distress you.

    With the $$ they get paid, and the power and prestige they get, I judge them with a higher, and tougher, standard than you do.

  1065. Trump says:

    McCain is the same backstabbing grandstander he has always been.

    He is a nobody till he stabs a republican. Nobody gives him the time of the day, unless he is bad-mouthing his own party.

    His biggest achievement as a legislator is the Keating 5 and McCain-Feingold.

  1066. NYCmike says:

    “McCain is the same backstabbing grandstander he has always been.”

    -But…but….but…..he didn’t shutdown the government!

  1067. NYCmike says:

    Did McCain give any reasons?

  1068. Walt says:

    My farmer son will be interviewed in a segment on WISC. Public Radio today at 10 their time (11 EST).

  1069. NYCmike says:

    “Jonesy – You and I will disagree on many things. However, I have asked Trump repeatedly to stop using that vile, hateful word. He is a hateful bastard with no sense of decency so he continues to use it.”

    -Well said by both of you, and I apologize to Bitterlaw for not backing up his request to “trump” in the past.

  1070. Diamond Jim says:

    super sh*thouse

  1071. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – There are deep disagreements between us on strategy but I think our goals are pretty similar.

    I appreciate your comments. Cream soda.

    Now GFY.

    BREAKING: Japan says North Korea has fired what appears to be a missile, could land in waters off Japan.

  1073. Jonesy says:

    1113. Robbie says Trump’s fault that NKo shoots missles

  1074. janz says:

    Today people will be shoving microphones into McCain’s face asking “Why did you vote no, Senator McCain?” And, he will be glowingly smug with all the attention, having a sense of historical relevance once again.

    His legacy, though, will become the “Obamacare Repeal Slayer,” with war hero status being somewhere in the background. However, this embittered politician will have accomplished one personal goal of his – to put a log in the eye of Trump’s legislative promises, which was the repeal and replacement of Obamacare.

    As an aside – I agree with the repugnance of casually using the word “retard” in order to denigrate another’s political opinions or comments in a post.

  1075. Jonesy says:

    I think Trump is a good poster here, I just wish he would not use that word. That is all

  1076. Jonesy says:

    McCain will always will be remembered as the patsy for the Pentagon, and defense contractors.

    McCain and his buddies love war, and the profits from it. the reason we are still in Afghanistan 16 years later

  1077. Jonesy says:

    Kayla Twitter

    “Best part of being a Republican is being called a racist, and then get nothing in return of legislative outcome for it”

  1078. Trump says:

    Describes Robbie to a T.

  1079. BayernFan says:

    McCain was worst GOP candidate ever. He lost INDIANA. Even Tom Dewey carried Indiana. Twice. McCain is a shameless hypocrite panderer. Disgusting.

  1080. BayernFan says:

    Time for Trump to de-nut him. Again.

  1081. BayernFan says:

    To Hell with YOU McCain.

  1082. Wes says:

    New poll:

    Bob “Kid Rock” Ritchie-48.6

    Liberal Debbie-46.1

    If Kid Rock does topple Stabenow, then she will be only the second Dem Senator to lose reelection there ever. It will also be a sign the Wolverine State is genuinely trending GOP after being a Dem bastion for decades.

  1083. Trump says:

    Decades in public life, and the only accomplishment for McCain was a now-defunct McCain-feign old campaign finance law. Most of the provisions gutted by the Supreme Court as restricting free speech.

    Pathetic.

  1084. NYCmike says:

    “I am glad that retard triggers you all.”

    -“Trump”,

    It does not “trigger” me.

    It does, however, reflect on the type of person that you are.

  1085. Trump says:

    If kid rock is half as serious as candy Miller in running for senate, he will beat stabenow.

    It will be a sign of voters fed up with both parties, and looking for trump 2.0. Not of any republican love.

    A standard republican is not going to beat stabenow in Michigan.

  1086. Trump says:

    Pointing out that Robbie is brain dead.

    Thank you.

  1087. I love Trump says:

    If Kid Rock leads Stabemow, the democrats are in big trouble.

  1088. NYCmike says:

    “A standard republican” – one who does NOT adhere to the principle of “limited government is best”.

    In that, “Trump” is correct. “A standard republican” will NOT win in Michigan. We need a person NOT scared of upsetting the BIG GOVERNMENT apple cart.

    Hopefully, Kid Rock can fill that bill.

  1089. Jonsey says:

    Dennis Prager, hardly a blow hard, says McCain’s was revenge against Trump.

    McCain, who is dying, would rather settle a personal score, then help the American Public.

    Are any of his kids on Obamacare?

  1090. Trump says:

    Appropriately, a zombie senator props up a zombie program.

  1091. NYCmike says:

    McCain’s office numbers are all busy….can’t even politely tell him that he was a terrible Senator.

  1092. NYCmike says:

    That is what McCain voted for…..more bureaucracy.

  1093. Wes says:

    I find it ironic NYCMike–who thinks Iraq should still be a province of the US–has the audacity to complain about government spending and bureaucracy.

  1094. NYCmike says:

    jason, Bitterlaw, Wes, and Robbie logic:

    HFC – voted “YAY”. “deadenders” who should be primaried.

    Ted Cruz – voted “YAY”. “deadender” showboat, should be primaried.

    Rand Paul – voted “YAY”. “deadender” showboat, NOT a Republican and should be primaried.

    John McCain – voted “NAY”. Great Republican Senator who should NEVER be primaried.

  1095. NYCmike says:

    “I find it ironic” that Wes would write out such a ridiculous statement for all to see…..then again, maybe not.

    Are Japan and Germany, also, “a province of the US”?

  1096. NYCmike says:

    Wes is correct…it would be terrible to have a base of operations in Iraq to deal with Iran…..unless of course he agrees with Ron and Rand Paul, that they are NOT a threat.

  1097. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    Should we get rid of all foreign bases?

    Which ones and for what reasons?

    Are we an imperialistic country?

    Is the “blowback theory” an accurate one?

  1098. NYCmike says:

    Republicans voted YAY on “clean repeal” 50 or more times while Obama was President…..yet Wes is more worried about my comments on HHR.

    What a really “smart” analyst he must be!

  1099. NYCmike says:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4739888/One-dead-stabbing-attack-Hamburg-supermarket.html

    -Germany today……Robbie would rather have JEB!2016 in office instead of Trump……something tells me that a JEB! administration would NOT be ENFORCING CURRENT LAW like the Trump administration is…..you know, one of the responsibilities of the Executive Branch.

  1100. Bitterlaw says:

    1137 – You must not read my posts, NYC. I have NEVER called for any Republican (or fake Republican like Rand Paul) to have a primary opponent. Never. In fact, I have never voted for any candidate challenging an incumbent in any primary.

  1101. NYCmike says:

    Oh, sorry, Bitterlaw.

    You were the one who likes that they campaign in one way, and then govern differently.

    Thanks for setting the record straight.

  1102. Bitterlaw says:

    They campaigned to “repeal and replace.” Some of them want to repeal and then replace. McCain and the Maine Senators wants to repeal AND replace at the same time. I do not see why repeal and replace cannot be accomplished at the same time. I also am fine with repeal THEN replace in separate bills.

    Obamacare does not make my Top 5 issues so I am not flipping out.

    The real question is why is BF mad at McCain. Bayern loves Obamacare.

  1103. Bitterlaw says:

    My Top 5 Issues:

    1. Defense
    2. Federal judges
    3. Crime
    4. Taxes/Economy
    5. Foreign policy

  1104. BayernFan says:

    BL you should know better than that. I’ve hated McCain fir a loong time. The guy grandstands screwing over GOP conservatives and loves it. He has made a career out of garnering sympathy and his brain cancer is another example of that. He is very vindictive small minded erratic and an obstacle to conservative priorities whenever his support is needed.

  1105. NYCmike says:

    “The real question is why is BF mad at McCain. Bayern loves Obamacare.”

    -Maybe if you actually read what he writes, you would know that he liked the fact that his premiums went down, NOT that he loved Obamacare.

  1106. BayernFan says:

    Trump is right. The ACA should be permitted to implode and destroy the health insurance market. Then, with no insurance available to most Americans, health care costs will collapse as well. Then the health care market can rebuild and health insurance can be insurance, not an open check book.

  1107. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    I am not “flipping out” either.

    I am trying to figure out what “Republican” actually means.

    “Limited government” does not seem to be one of the principles for the term “Republican”.

  1108. lisab says:

    you guys overreact a lot

    the house is not going to change because of this vote. the house voted for the bill. plus, many many congressmen win their seats by over 60% of the votes.

    the dems still face an uphill battle on the senate. even kid rock may take a seat, as crazy as that sounds.

    “look at me mccain” did what he always does, grabs the center of attention. probably the only way to get a bill through the senate was to let mccain sponsor it and to call it the MCCAIN health care bill and let him call the measure to a vote with all cameras on him.

    nothing has really changed except that now the voters have a clear choice. they are one senator away from repealing obamacare

    now everyone knows what the situation is.

  1109. NYCmike says:

    I am OK with an implosion….I have to pay anyway, might as well be able to laugh at my liberal friends who are dealing with that same issue.

    It reminds me of when Edward G Robinson (or Billy Crystal!) says “How do you like your Obamacare NOWWWW?!?”.

  1110. Bitterlaw says:

    He is very vindictive small minded erratic and an obstacle to conservative priorities whenever his support is needed.

    Odd criticism coming from a guy who praises his Obmacare policy.

  1111. NYCmike says:

    MD, Author, “CG”, Cory gone….

    lisab telling it like it is….

    Bizarro World…..

  1112. NYCmike says:

    “Odd criticism coming from a guy who praises his Obmacare policy.”

    -You are odd…..if I could get a cheaper Obamacare policy, I would gladly pay less $$$$, BUT still want it repealed.

    Why is that such a problem for you to understand?

  1113. BayernFan says:

    Actually NYC I was simply pointing out that in my case, premiums went down because my previous policy was grandfathered and it’s premiums skyrocketed as soon as ACA was passed. Because of the ACA it became unaffordable and I was forced to go onto the exchange. The coverages were comparable, but now the deductible is 6500 not 2500. (Ironically, the high deductible may contain the seeds of consumer market discipline forcing health care costs to drop over time). I think it’s useful to share with the board here my real life experience and what it can teach us. There is a way out of government controlled health care. It’s finding a way to introduce the market to the consumer side if it asap. Letting ACA continue to destroy the insurance markets may be just what the doctor ordered. By the way, the provider of my current plan is leaving the market at the end of the year, so there may be only one carrier left on the exchange. I will see if I can shop around and see what options are left.

  1114. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – BF praised the policy and Obamacare itself. I do not recall him ever criticizing Obamacare.

  1115. Bitterlaw says:

    I typed 1158 before I read 1157. I still think that this is revisionist BS from BF. He defended Obamacare fully when we started subsidizing his coverage.

  1116. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    I think you were influenced by the other A-Holes in the past, or maybe I ready Bayern incorrectly.

    So be it.

  1117. Trump says:

    All of this is clear if you go with the premise that Bitterlaw is stupid, can’t comprehend English, and is innumerate to boot.

  1118. Trump says:

    Which makes him bitter.

    Perfectly understandable.

  1119. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – I have been honest enough to express embarrassment that I have a pre-existing medical condition. Alleged concern for people like me is holding up repeal of Obamacare. BY is happy to receive our subsidies. I will be ashamed if my diabetes is unfairly ignored when calculating premiums.

  1120. Bitterlaw says:

    Trump a/k/a Soccer Guru is a genius? When asked about soccer, he said he does not like or follow the game yet chose Soccer Guru as his handle.

  1121. Trump says:

    That doesn’t change the fact that you are stupid.

    Have you ever figured out that everyone on Obamacare does not receive subsidies?

  1122. Trump says:

    Dumber than a stupid slug.

  1123. Bitterlaw says:

    That doesn’t change the fact that you are stupid.

    thank you for admitting that you are Soccer Guru. Why not just go back to that? Continuing to use “Trump” when you predicted that he would lose and take the House and Senate down with him is strange.

  1124. Trump says:

    I am strange, moron.

    Stupid is not the way to go through life.

  1125. Bitterlaw says:

    We’re making progress. Trump confirms that he is Soccer Guru and that he is strange.

  1126. Trump says:

    All folks on Obamacare that I know purchase.iindivudal insurance through exchange because that is the only way to get insurance anymore.

    At double and triple deductibles and premiums than they used to.

    Without any subsidies.

    Wrap your stupid head around that, idiot.

    It really is amazing to watch you, an avowed Tea Party supporter, constantly defend Trump.

  1128. Bitterlaw says:

    Personally, I always read Bayern’s comments exactly as he just wrote in comment #1157, and was always confused why the A-Holes and others took him to task for saving money.

  1132. Trump says:

    You won’t be confused if you remember the premise.

  1133. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    You keep going the “defend Trump” route – makes it clear you do NOT read anything I write.

    What is the next Trump hate you are going to?

    It seems the earth-shattering kaboom of the Jared hearings did not materialize.

    Are you waiting for directions from Maggie?

  1136. messy says:

    1011. Tina sweety, Three articles of impeachment were voted out of the House Judiciary committee and two days before the debate was scheduled to begin, Dickie resigned. Therefore the Impeachment process was successful. I added Dickie because he sort of counts.

    We don’t know what’s going to happen with Trump, but the parallels are striking.

  1139. BayernFan says:

    BL I have explained time and time again that I do not receive any subsidies. I pay 533 a month to a private insurance provider. I have always opposed the ACA. It was one of the first things I did as a member of this forum. Vociferously. The ACA’s policies DID allow me to purchase comparable insurance at a much lower premium than I was paying at the time. 550 a month vs 1300 a month. That’s because I’m in my 50s and the ACA’s understood purpose is to force younger people to buy insurance.

    Nevertheless, the seeds of the ACAs Demise can be found within it…..so long as the GOP holds firm against single payer.

  1140. BayernFan says:

    This past year, my provider decided to keep the premium the same by increasing the deductible…. from 2500 to 6500. Now that provider is leaving the market. This is an opportunity to force health care providers to reduce prices (if insurance money is taken off the table to a large degree). The next pressure will be for single payer of course which would be more of a disaster.

  1141. Trump says:

    For someone who claims to form his own opinion, the retard Robbie sure cuts and pastes a lot.

    Can’t think for himself.

  1142. Trump says:

    Why the radio silence on the Jared testimony, retard Robbie?

    1188. Which one? I have a very nice watergate collection dating back to the instant books put out back then. There are hundreds of books on the subject, and almost all of them say that three articles of impeachment were voted out of the Judiciary committee. Tickets were printed out (sadly, I don’t own one) and everything was set to begin for the final debate when Nixon resigned (which is a unique incident in American history).

    Nixon was forced to leave the presidency because of the impeachment process. Thus said process was successful.

  1146. Wes says:

    Il Mikey, when did I say we need to close foreign bases. As far as Iraq, two things:

    1) If GWB really intended Iraq to be a staging place for an assault on Iran–let’s be honest here; the former Idiot-in-Chief was too stupid to have this kind of foresight–then why didn’t use that as an excuse rather than Saddam’s mythical post-1991 WMDs?

    2) How’d that whole staging ground for an assault on Iraq work out once terrorists ran rampant for years and caused Americans to become so disgusted with the whole thing they voted decisively for Obama, who promised unequivocally to get us out of Iraq?

    I understand cowards like you who consider their own hides too sacrosanct to put on line in the wars they demand to happen consider yourselves experts on foreign policy, but I’m not really seeing the benefits of your advocated policies.

  1147. Wes says:

    So let me get this straight, Mikey:

    We spent $1 trillion in Iraq. We should have spent more on that boondoggle.

    The penalty for not being covered:

    With skyrocketing premiums even for bronze plans, may will be exempt from paying the penalty. From I can tell, you are exempt from the penalty if the premium for a braze plan is 8.33 percent of income.

    For example, if the premium if $5,000 and your income is $50,000, you don’t have to pay the fee.

    https://www.healthcare.gov/exemptions-tool/#/results/2016/details/marketplace-affordability

    IF you don’t have assets subject to bankruptcy AND if you have modest income, consider paying out of pocket for routine expenses such as doctor’s visits, and just go to the hospital when you must. Tell them you not insured because insurance is unaffordable. They MUST treat you. Afterword, they will write off your cost as charity care or force you to declare bankruptcy.

  1196. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    This is what John Kelly says about Kushner. They now appear to be the advisers who will be closest to the president.

    “Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Sunday said he does not “see any big issue” with reports that senior White House adviser Jared Kushner, who is President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, sought to set up backchannel communications with the Kremlin before Trump’s inauguration.
    “I know Jared. He’s a great guy, decent guy. His number one interest, really, is the nation, so you know there’s a lot of different ways to communicate, backchannel, publicly with other countries,” Kelly told Chuck Todd on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.”
    He said Kushner made those efforts “before the government was in place during the transition period, I think, from what I understand.”
    “And I think any time you can open lines of communication with anyone, whether they’re good friends or not so good friends, is a smart thing to do,” Kelly said. “I don’t see any big issue here relative to Jared.”

  1197. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1239. Jonesy, I understand. But in calling him out there is no need to attach the state name to his internet name.

  1198. Phil says:

    The over and Under on the number of talk shows John look at me McCain gets himself booked on this Sunday.

  1199. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1234. Possibly because of the power struggle between competing staff members. It can often happen, using the press to weaken the position of someone perceived as an opponent. I could be wrong, but the White House staff was leaking information like a sieve.

    Scaramucci certainly disliked him, calling him a paranoid schizophrenic and accusing him of building his own brand off the president.

    My hunch is that Bannon may be gone soon too. Kushner & Kelly will dominate.

    Oy Vey

  1215. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1248.. Priebus was in a difficult position. He was not considered a Trump loyalist, and others went around him. He could never properly establish himself as chief of staff — it not his fault, just he environment he was put in.

    To Trump’s credit, he realized there had to be changes made in the White House staff, and did it. Was good he was gracious in his comments about Priebus.

    From a NYT article:

    “The president became convinced that Mr. Priebus was not strong enough to run the White House operation and that he needed a general to take charge. Mr. Kelly, who has demonstrated strong leadership at the Department of Homeland Security, had become a favorite of Mr. Trump’s.”

    Top tier recruit for the Dems Robbie Rodham?

  1217. Redmen4ever says:

    I thought I’d be more specific:

    The average monthly premium for a bronze plan for an individual age 30, is $364.91. It’s higher for older persons. See:

    https://www.healthpocket.com/healthcare-research/infostat/2017-obamacare-premiums-deductibles#.WXux6-mQnVs

    If you are a single person, with few if any assets; and, if your income is less than about $17,000, you qualify for Medicaid.

    If you are a single person, with few if any assets; and if your income is between $17 and $47,000; you don’t qualify for Medicaid but – GOOD NEWS! – you are exempt from the penalty because bronze plans cost more than 9-1/3 percent of your income. It’s basically stupid for you to spend $365 per month for a bronze plan which doesn’t pay a dime until you reach your deductible (which on average is $6,092). Use the money that would be called your deductible to pay out of pocket for doctor’s visits and other ordinary medical expenses, which normally will be sufficient, and pocket the savings in premium. IF you wind up needing an expensive procedure, just go to the hospital. THEY HAVE TO SERVE YOU. They will then write your cost off, as a charity case or else you can declare bankruptcy.

    Now, let’s consider individuals with income above $47,000. First of all, if you’re only making a little more than $47,000, you are being stupid. Unless you can make well more than $47,000, keep your income below $47,000 to avoid the penalty. Such are the realities of socialism. You’ve got to learn the rules in order to game the system. WIth income in excess of $47,000, the penalty is 2.5 percent of income.

    For the penalty to equal the premium, you’d have to make $175,000 per year. With that kind of income, you’re probably accumulating assets that you’d want to protect in the event of a major medical expenditure, so buying a bronze plan makes sense. But, as long as we’re NOT talking about protecting assets, probably all healthy people age 30 would come out ahead by foregoing insurance, paying out of pocket for routine expenses, and just showing up at the emergency room if and when this is necessary.

    The so-called “young healthies” are gone. And, with them, all the imagined “savings” of Obamacare. Obamacare has, as predicted, destroyed the individual market in health insurance.

    You elected an incompetent buffoon and got an incompetent buffoon.

    He is now a lame duck. Congrats on helping elect a horrible human being and THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER.

    The 2-term Democratic that happens after Trump will have a lot of damage to undo though so he will be limited in moving the country left-ward.

    Robbie, he didn’t do it in order to do the Republican Party any favors. Don’t kid yourself. McCain never cared a lick about the Republican Party and he’s demonstrated that over and over and over throughout the years by undercutting Republicans in congress at every opportunity. What he has always cared about is the MSM whom he plays to continuously. Glory hound, loves to be the MSM good guy and the best way to do always do that has always been to take Democrats side and undercut Republicans and their positions. The adulation he is getting in the leftist MSM right now is feeding his considerable ego. He is loving it. He always does. This is nothing new. It’s the way McCain has always operated.

  1259. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Before anyone begins to write Trump’s political obituary, it is important to keep in mind the Democratic Party leadership has lower polling numbers than he does, and they have no clear candidate. In fact, the Democrats appear to be heading into a civil war. Plus, the economy is doing very well now.

    Trump has been beaten up and battered, so was Bill Clinton when he was first elected. Yet Clinton learned from it and got himself re-elected. Will see how Trump handles it.

  1275. Redmen4ever says:

    Politically, the defeat of repeal and replace of Obamacare works BIG TIME for Republicans.

    Were Obamacare to be repealed and replaced, the GOP would own it. There would then be a trickle of stories of how people were dying because Obamacare was gone (even though, under the House bill, the phase-in doesn’t begin for two years).

    As it is, there will be a trickle of stories of middle-class families postponing or doing without routine care, and desperate for emergency care.

    Top tier opportunities (Trump won big): IN, MO, MT, ND, OH and WV
    Second tier (Trump won small): FL, MI, PA and WI
    Third tier (Trump lost small): ME, MN and VA

    I’m thinking a net pick-up of six is a real possibility. Plus, I think the conservative wing of the Republican Party will do very in the primaries.

  1276. lisab says:

    Before anyone begins to write Trump’s political obituary
    ————————–

    trump gets blamed for none of this. it is all on the gop congress.

    had it been passed an immense amount of energy would have been spent on coming up with a republican plan, with mcain and collins and to some extent paul holding the senate hostage every 10 minutes

    that is all over. trump now knows he does not actually have the senate.

    all his energy will go on illegal immigrants and sactuary cities etc. where the executive branch has a lot of power. m13 will be targeted and other gangs and will make for great pictures.

    mccain may even try to come out with a “compromise bill” with the dems just to get back on tv.

    pretty much trump has zero incentive to give any senator any attention.

  1277. Tina says:

    Lisab, he could always phuq congress and put them under onumblercsre.

  1278. Charles says:

    This White House is a complete joke. It’s time for President Pence.

  1280. Tina says:

    Bill mcstuffin and egg mcmuffin sound better.

  1281. BayernFan says:

    I agree with Lisa. Trump gave Mitch and the Senate a chance. He will cut his losses, ignore them, and move on. He will do stuff on his own and leave the congress to its own devices. It’s worthless to him now. He’s a bidnessman. Time to get chit done.

  1282. Jonesy says:

    Charles is another one who predicted a Hillary landslide

  1283. Jonesy says:

    Lisa and Bay, can trump dump the individual mandate by exec order?

  1284. Jonesy says:

    Bay, how will the GOP hold the House without repeal?

  1285. Charles says:

    President Walker or President Rubio would have been perfect.

  1286. Bitterlaw says:

    Jonesy – Barletta will lose to Wolfe. He is a good Congressman but has zero appeal outside NE PA. I think that Trump is so toxic in the PA suburbs that Wolfe easily wins re-election.

    People who don’t live in PA to tell me I am wrong in 3…2…1…

  1287. Jonesy says:

    Trafalgar group- who called mich and penn for trump before election

  1288. Jonesy says:

    Barletta is running against Casey, bitter

  1289. Bitterlaw says:

    Here’s a crazy idea – Draft a bill that repeals AND replaces Obamacare. Just need one more GOP senator to vote for it. Problem solved.

  1290. Bitterlaw says:

    Oops. I thought it was Wolfe. I made a mistake. Bring it. I really have not followed the Casey race. Barletta will lose to Casey for the same reason.

  1291. Tina says:

    Problem solved,

    Defeat the rs that promised repeal. Phuq them all.

  1292. BayernFan says:

    I don’t know if the GOP will hold the house and senate or not. Basically, that is the GOPe’s problem. I would not be surprised were Congress, as Lisa suggests, to find some measure that they can pass to deal with the electorate. We shall see.

  1293. BayernFan says:

    Trump can issue an XO that the mandate not be enforced all that much. Didn’t Obama do that with immigration?

  1294. Jonesy says:

    You know your state, but did the philly suburbs even matter in 2016?

  1295. BayernFan says:

    BL and Lisa are probably both right. My guess is that they come up with something and pass it.

  1296. Jonesy says:

    They need to confirm judges pronto

  1297. Tina says:

    He can do an eo and no longer exemp congress from obamacare.

    Thst would be the smart thing. Have the rinos try to pass the bill exempting them.

  1298. Tina says:

    Trump,will need to co ti ue deporting, dealing m13, and securing the border

  1299. BayernFan says:

    He also needs to champion some sort of infrastructure measure. That would help the GOP in those fools gold states. A lot.

  1300. Tina says:

    Let the pos congress critters be under obumblercare, as the law states.

  1301. lisab says:

    Lisa and Bay, can trump dump the individual mandate by exec order?
    ——————————-

    not his problem anymore. even if he could, if it started falling apart he would get the blame. i doubt he would do anything until people were really hurting. then he might step in.

    Bay, how will the GOP hold the House without repeal?
    ——————————————–

    the house is not that up for grabs as you might think. many seats are completely safe, unlike most senate seats, many congressional seats are won by immense margins.

    plus the house can always say, “we did our job, it was the senate.”

    plus the trump supporters know that if the house becomes dem, you start impeachment proceedings the next day — so they cannot stay home. finally the dems have no money. i think there is an excellent shot the house stays gop.

  1302. NYCmike says:

    Lose the House? Why?

    Obamacare is still the law, and premiums will go up again.

    The House passed a bill which was stopped by the Senate, and who will the voters vote for? A Democrat who will promise to make Obamacare even more government-centric?

    I don’t see that at all.

    Keep going after the Democrats, the media, and pushing for tax and regulatory reform.

  1303. lisab says:

    trump can rack up a huge number of victories just arresting and deporting people … so he will.

    why would he go to the senate again so mccain can spit on him? apart from budgets and judges i bet he stays away from any major legislation until after 2018 — anything that mccain or collins could screw up that is.

    mccain will hate not being in the news all the time. he will start calling into radio shows …

    “the senate wants to approve national pizza day … but i am not going to vote for it … i want national taco day!”

    i really think it is possible mccain will be so upset about being sidelined he reaches out to dems to pass a “mccain bill” especially as obamacare implodes

  1304. Bitterlaw says:

    Jonesy – Trump won PA because Dems ignored rural and rust areas. They won’t make that mistake again. Casey will get all of the Hillary voters who turn out AND Barletta will not get all of Trump’s voters.

  1305. NYCmike says:

    Charles, Diogenes, “CG” all showed up today….to go after Trump, who has nothing to do with the vote failing.

    Some people just can’t admit when they are wrong…..

    Robbie is a special case….he shows the ability to be wrong EVERY DAY.

  1306. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw predicting a loss gives me hope.

  1307. Bitterlaw says:

    Make Congress have Obamacare? Zzzzzz. They can afford it. They will have no trouble finding doctors in DC.

  1308. lisab says:

    the whole point of priebus was that he supposedly could get bills through congress

    now trump “wants a different direction”

    i think major legislation from the white house is dead

    ryan and especially mcconnell are on the hook

    mcconnell was very upset by mccain’s vote, he and rubio were both shocked by the vote, which seems to indicate they thought mccain was voting yes, or why would they have had the vote?

  1309. Jonesy says:

    Yep mike. Robbie Rodham is always wrong

  1310. NYCmike says:

    Personally, PA Senate is one of the last seats I think will change.

    Florida
    Indiana
    Missouri
    Michigan
    Montana
    North Dakota
    Ohio
    West Virginia
    Wisconsin

    Not in that order….

  1311. lisab says:

    i actually felt a little bad for rubio

    he was not the one treated the worst by trump, but pretty badly … and he sucked it up, put his big boy boots on and voted as he was told

    and mccain blew him off

  1312. Bitterlaw says:

    GFY, NYC. I was the only person here who said that PA could go to Trump because Hillary should not have had to spend much of the last week of the campaign in Philadelphia and the suburbs. Her mistake was trying to run up the margins in Philadelphia while ignoring Scranton, Wilkes Barre and Western PA.

  1313. NYCmike says:

    “mcconnell was very upset by mccain’s vote, he and rubio were both shocked by the vote, which seems to indicate they thought mccain was voting yes, or why would they have had the vote?”

    -Which, once again, shows McCain to be the selfish showboating disrespectful BIG GOVERNMENT Republican that many think he is.

    I ask again, what would be the reaction by the HHR posters if Cruz, Paul, or Lee “surprised” the leadership with a “NAY” vote?

  1314. Tina says:

    They beotched last time, bl, and obama exempted them.
    It woukd also apoly to their staffers.

  1315. Tina says:

    I liked rubios boots.

  1316. Tina says:

    Thise are the only options given the rino deadendsers.

    Ohuq them all.

  1317. Redmen4ever says:

    There’s a gulf between needing 50 votes in the Senate to fetch the VP’s tie-breaking vote, and then fetch the President’s signature …

    And needing 67 votes in the Senate to override the President’s veto.

    The votes simply aren’t there in the Senate to do anything the President doesn’t want to do. In the meantime, Trump, like Obama before him, can rule with his pen and his phone.

    Regarding the individual mandate of Obamacare, what does it mean in counties where there is no company offering insurance? The President, I do believe, can declare the individual mandate void in those counties and allow private insurance companies offer insurance that complies with state law.

    Currently, there are about 50 rural counties with no provider. But, as the individual market collapses, this number is sure to increase.

    Whether this will hold up in court, we will see. Obamacare was decided to be Constitutional on a 1-4-4 decision (Roberts was joined by 4 concurring opinions). This is a so-called minority opinion. It does not establish the same precedent as a majority decision, although it is binding on lower courts.

    If Obamacare were to get back to the Supreme Court, I am sure the will at least declare the individual mandate to be unconstitutional deprivation of liberty unconstitutional in those counties where there is no provider and the penalty to be an arbitrary taking. BUT …

    The Court might rule more broadly, that the entire scheme has shown itself to be an unworkable, and therefore that the deprivation of liberty and penalty are unconstitutional.

  1318. NYCmike says:

    Yes, Bitterlaw, you saw something very obvious, the many rallies, and made a valid remark, which I agreed with, which is why I predicted a Trump victory on Nov 8th.

    I thank you for getting ONE data point implanted in my brain to help with my analysis.

  1319. Tina says:

    Can the rs ever field a team that does not choke?

  1320. Tina says:

    Imsay let the large increases occur in january, larger deductivles and the. Demagogue the issue.

    Take the exemption away from the congressional aholes, eff, 1/18.

    Redmen,

    A lot of great information to check on.

    Appreciate it.

  1322. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina – Seriously. Why don’t you run for office? I will send you a check. Don’t snipe from the sidelines. Get in the fight.

  1323. Tina says:

    I have posted her since 2010 that the rs woukd never repeal.

    They committed fraud on the people.

  1324. lisab says:

    i doubt trump will cancel the exemption. he does like drama, but in this case there would be no purpose. he would only do that if he is still committed to passing a bill, but i think he would rather let it fail.

    this way he can step in and say, “i told the senate to fix it and they wouldn’t”

    he knows that if he forces a bill through he owns it AND it is just doubtful he could get any senator to flip to yay even if he went to the people

  1325. Tina says:

    Bl, i have a lot of you know skeletons in the closet. I am close to 70. I am too old. You shoukd run, you are much younger than I.

  1329. Bitterlaw says:

    The misuse of “deadender” by HHR’s true descenders is funny and sad. If electable candidates had been nominatedinstead of Deadenders like COD, Akin, Mourdoch, Angle and Buck, Obamacare would have been repealed.

  1330. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina – Near 70? Walt will not use your youth and inexperience against you. You have never said the nature of your service but I thank you for it.

  1332. lisab says:

    the full repeal probably would not have happened

    the senators primaried by the dead enders probably would not have voted for repeal as they lost by 10 votes

    and it is not at all clear that they would have even passed the skinny repeal.

    Robbie’s white-hot hatred for Trump still trumping his ability to think logically. Oh, well….

    – White hot hatred is probably a bit much, but I think his presidency is off the rails and this past week was a catastrophe for him, the Republican Party, the conservative movement, and the country. And the fact this was his worst week is saying something since last week was a disaster as was two weeks ago when Don Jr.’s emails were released.

  1338. lisab says:

    the thing is, as a government employee, i get great coverage

    as i am sure all the fed and blue state workers do

    so obamacare does not apply to us at all

    (the only time it is expensive for me is if i go out of network)

    Charles, Diogenes, “CG” all showed up today….to go after Trump, who has nothing to do with the vote failing.

    Some people just can’t admit when they are wrong…..

    Robbie is a special case….he shows the ability to be wrong EVERY DAY.

    – LOL. Says the Tea Party enabler who wants every elected Republican primaried and who supported clownish oafs like Mourdock and the other deadenders.

    You live in a deluded reality where Trump can run around like the Tazmanian Devil and wreck everything he touches and still expect the Congress to carry on as if nothing batcrap crazy has happened.

    IT DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY.

  1342. Bitterlaw says:

    BF – They voted to repeal AND replace. Again, some want both at the same time.

    1386. This from clown Robbie Rodham, who voted for Hillary

    – Jonesy Bork, the Trump court jester, really enjoys lying. I didn’t vote for Hillary and he knows that because I’ve shot down this stupid comment at least five time with him already. Everyone who has posted here for more than two months, unlike Trump’s court jester, knows I didn’t vote for Hillary.

    Again, I don’t think Jonesy Bork realizes how few of the regulars at HHR didn’t vote for Trump either. Of course, since he just showed up a month or so ago, he wouldn’t know that.

  1348. Robbie says:

    Tina says:

  1357. Bitterlaw says:

    Ayotte lost because of Deadenders voters sending a message. She would have won a 2 candidate race.

  1358. Tina says:

    She likely lost because of same day registration.

    FRAUD.

  1359. Tina says:

    No issue with her, same day registration is sheot.

  1360. lisab says:

    ayotte also lost because she skipped trump’s penultimate campaign appearance on november 7th and as a result got 6 to 7 hours horrible coverage on the night before the election in front of 10,000 trump supporters and hundreds of thousands of drive time talk radio listeners

    she just got pummeled on air, of very politically active people, for not showing or at least sending a lackey.

    —————————-

    maybe that too. but in nh it is not so much illegals voting or even busloads of people being shipped in as some people suggest

    it is the college students from out of state who register on campus and then may even also vote at home.

  1363. lisab says:

    charles,

    everything you mentioned is from congress

  1364. Trump says:

    Quote, like many idiots, thought she could diss trump in a 50-50 state, and somehow dems would vote for her.

    Meanwhile, trump had dems in fruited plains coming out of the woodworks to vote for him.

    Some people think they are smart when they are not.

  1365. Charles says:

    And all you stooges thinking well, at least he’s a R and he’ll just sign bills that Ryan and McConnel pass. Well, this useful idiot is a complete moron. He sabotaged Obamacare repeal. The vote was 49-51 with McCain and Murkowski voting against. Hmm coincidence? Orange Moron insults McCain saying he’s not a war hero, he threatens Murkowski. Good job Mr. President. Either of those votes would have been useful, don’t ya think?

  1366. Trump says:

    Don’t confuse Charles, his weed quota for the week ran out today.

  1367. Charles says:

    Lisab, you’re wrong. President sets the agenda and sees it through. This moron has no clue.

  1368. Trump says:

    Moron,

    Trump does not care about Obamacare, his job does not depend upon repealing it,

  1369. Trump says:

    President does not pass bills. Read the constitution, moron.

    It mentions some other folks who deal with bills.

  1370. Charles says:

    I don’t care what Trump thinks about Obamacare. I care about how Obamacare is destroying the Republic and how it’s a stepping stone towards single payer.

    I know you don’t care about any of that. You just care about what’s good for Trump so whatever. After all, your butt buddy loves the healthcare system in Scotland and Australia. Great healthcare right? Moron

  1371. Trump says:

    Good one, Charles, trump will sign bills that McConnell and Ryan pass.

    As if they could pass any bills.

  1372. Charles says:

    Make America Great Again – by keeping Obamacare. OK moron

  1373. Trump says:

    Maybe your butt buddy McConnell and Rubio could pass something.

    Loser.

  1374. Charles says:

    They could pass bills if Trump can stop being a moron. McConnel got Heller, Capito, Portman. He got who he needed to get. Murkowski and McCain voted no because of Trump. It’s Trump’s fault, not McConnells’.

  1375. Trump says:

    I am so glad you are hurting, Charles.

  1376. lisab says:

    President sets the agenda and sees it through.
    —————————–

    no other gop candidate had much chance of winning

    and certainly hillary would not have got rid of obamacare

    **maybe** rubio could have won, but even then there is a good chance the gop would have won the wh and lost the senate

  1377. BayernFan says:

    It’s Trump’s fault that GOP Senators broke their word. Right.

  1378. Trump says:

    Maybe McCain and murkowski should have listened to you, charles

  1379. lisab says:

    obviously i meant that in the unlikely event rubio won the white house

    the gop could have easily lost the senate in that circumstance.

  1380. Trump says:

    GOP does not want to repeal Obamacare.

    Deal with it

  1381. lisab says:

    and then …

    what is the chance that even had rubio won, even with a 52-48 senate, he could have overturned obamacare?

    the same senators would have voted nay.

  1382. lisab says:

    the argument is that

    mccain, murkowski, and collins are very petty individuals who put their own egos before the country …

    and thus charles is angry at trump 🙂

  1383. Tina says:

    The fault lies with the 3 r dadenders.

    They are frauds.

  1384. Trump says:

    GOP has been lying to you, Charles.

    Deal with it

  1385. Tina says:

    7 years of repeal pro ises.

    7 years of lies, deceit, and fraud.

    Somthat you can highnfive your drat buddies and pose.

  1386. Trump says:

    Because you are such a moron, Charles, they’ will keep lying to you.

  1387. Charles says:

    “GOP does not want to repeal Obamacare.”

    Oh really? Repeal passed the House. 49 out of 52 GOP senators voted for repeal. 2 of the 3 no’s voted that way because of Trump’s antics.

    And you say GOP does not want to repeal Obamacare.

    You are a special kind of moron.

  1388. Tina says:

  1391. Tina says:

    Trump is staging a coup by having gen kelky as cos.

  1392. Charles says:

    There are more than the 3 deadenders that voted no. McConnell got most of them. He couldn’t crack McCain and Murkowski because they were going to stick it to Agent Orange no matter what.

    I blame Murkowski, McCain, AND TRUMP for this epic fail. McConnell is not to blame at all. He is a good man who did everything he could, he could not overcome Trump’s meddling and that is sad for the Republic.

  1393. Tina says:

    They stuck it to the country, losers all 3 of them.. ni way to defend it. 7 years repeal.

  1394. Trump says:

    If GOP wanted to repeal Obamacare, they would have.

    Moron.

    The simplest explanation is the right one.

  1395. Trump says:

    Just like dems wanted to install Obamacare, and they did. By one vote.

  1396. Trump says:

    The GOP kept lying to you, chuck.

    And they will continue lying to you.

    Because you are the moron that they love.

  1397. Trump says:

    The GOP knows that morons like you will swallow anything it peddles.

    You don’t pay them, the insurance lobbyists do. Why would they listen to you?

    patriotism plays well in the midwest

  1400. lisab says:

    it reminds me of when paul simon went to south africa in the early nineties. he was answering questions once about it and a person said, “it would have been great if stevie wonder went to africa to play music.” and paul simon said, “i am sure it would have been great if stevie wonder had went, but he didn’t, i did”

    i am sure it would have been great if jeb bush or one of the other gop candidates had won … but they didn’t …

    and it is very unlikely any of them could have beaten hillary. remember they all lost to trump who is a terrible candidate in your opinion

  1401. lisab says:

    jeb bush might have actually won the gop nomination had it not been for trump

    that would have been complete destruction for the gop

  1402. Charles says:

    Whatever you say, genius. Rubio was regularly beating the thighness by double digits during the primaries.

    And yeah, an old hag with a 30% approval rating was going to win. Whatever you say.

    So if Robbie is the Retard and
    Charles is the Moron…

    Who am I?

    Did someone here at HHR get fired as Chief of Staff?

    Who IS on first?

  1404. lisab says:

    Whatever you say, genius. Rubio was regularly beating the thighness by double digits during the primaries.
    —————————-

    rubio won only two primaries, minnesota and puerto rico

    neither of which he would have won in the general

    just like when john lennon was asked if ringo was the best drummer ever, and he answered “ringo is not even the best drummer in the beatles”

    rubio was not even the second best candidate in the nomination process.

    he was not even killed of by trump, christie buried him in new hampshire

    he would almost certainly have lost to hillary if by some miracle he managed to win the primaries

  1405. lisab says:

    granted, rubio had a slight chance in the general

    he would have needed an inside straight

  1406. lisab says:

    had trump not been in the nomination process

    jeb, cruz, christie, kasich, paul and huckabee all had equal or better shots at the nomination than rubio.

    without trump taking out jeb, he had a good shot

  1407. Trump says:

    Hey Chuck,

    The GOP took a vote last night on Obamacare, and voted to keep it.

    Deal with it, moron.

  1408. JC says:

    I am sooo happy that Priebus got ditched. We tried to make peace with the GOPe, and all that has lead to was the state department being packed with swamp weasels who leaked to damage Trump.

    Hopefully Mucci continues crushing the establishment leakers. Things are starting to turn.

  1409. Jonesy says:

    Rubio would have lost the General, because conservatives would have stayed home.

    they would never have forgiven Rubio for helping Schumer pass amnesty.

  1410. Jonesy says:

    Jc, if Reince was a leaker, then good that he went.

    But has it be proven that he was?

  1411. Redmen4ever says:

    Trump is a jerk. McCain, et. al are jerks. It’s not either/or.

    McCain, et. al will get another opportunity to be jerks on the budget. The budget, like reconciliation, only needs a simple majority.

    On a separate note: Murkowski and Trump are now at war. Zinke has told her that her vote on R&R will cost her state as far as decisions by Interior are concerned. She has been holding up 6 Trump nominees and has now postponed committee hearings on them to a date in the future.

  1412. Jonesy says:

    America would have never elected a third Bush, especially after Iraq.

    Jeb would have been beaten like McCain or Romney

  1413. Jonesy says:

    Heller would have voted no, if McCain did’nt.

    Nevada GOP and Sandoval love Medicaid

  1414. Jonesy says:

    Charles is Corey

  1415. Wes says:

    Charles isn’t Corey. Corey posts as CG. Charles was a Deadender when he premiered circa 2010 who morphed into a Cassandra when Trump became the GOP nominee.

  1416. Tina says:

    Senator planned parenthood has been a dissapointment.

    The rs have done a terrible job with appointment confirmations. It is the worst ever. Blame trump, but also blame the rs.

    I am glad that I registered out of the party years ago. A mess. Not prepared to govern with majorities.

  1417. Tina says:

    There is no proof of him leaking, jonesy, other than the allegation of moochs financial disclosure form. Walsh his assistsnce was transfered.

    I hope with the upgrades, such as sanders as press secretary over good man, spicer, mooch, and the new cos, there will be positive changes.

  1418. Tina says:

    He may have been one that leaked through the minions. However, only rumours of that, the most serious allegation, and ahain only an allegation, was the disclosure form.

  1419. Tina says:

    I like Kelly

    In May, Mr. Kelly was criticized after being caught on an open microphone at a Coast Guard Academy graduation suggesting that Mr. Trump use a sword “on the press.”

    During a speech at George Washington University in April, Mr. Kelly denounced congressional critics of the Department of Homeland Security, saying they should “shut up” and assume the agency is acting appropriately and following the law.

    “If lawmakers do not like the laws they’ve passed and we are charged to enforce, then they should have the courage and skill to change the laws,” Mr. Kelly said. “Otherwise they should shut up and support the men and women on the front lines.”

    He is also pro border enforcement.

  1420. Tina says:

    Mr. Kelly, whose deputy, Elaine C. Duke, will become acting secretary, has unleashed the full force of his department on illegal immigration. Under Immigration and Customs Enforcement, part of the Department of Homeland Security, there has been a substantial increase in the number of undocumented immigrants rounded up for deportation, many of whom were excluded because of Obama administration policies. Apprehensions at the border of people illegally crossing it are also down.

    Good work, kelly, tou are perhaps the best cabinet pick in the administration.

  1421. Jonesy says:

    1461. Thanks for clearing that up, Wes.

  1422. Tina says:

    I hope this is not true

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DF3DUF_UMAAupMf.jpg

    The picture in the senate was spiking the football behavior.

  1423. Tina says:

    There is a video of mccain approaching the floor, the ky drunk stupidky smiling, and mccains dramtic and over the top gesture of thumbs down. He did not even look at his r colleagues. Rubio was close by and lyou coukd just see rubios face,

    I will try to find it qnd post it.

  1424. Jonesy says:

    Tina, thanks. I like Reince and Spicer, and hope they go back and help the RNC for 2018.

    If this is true about Murkowski holding up appointments, then she is too far gone at this point.

    Might as well switch parties, and then deal with Senator Sullivan only

  1425. Jonesy says:

    Tina, Heller delayed his vote to see what McCain would do. Heller was prepared to vote no

  1426. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina is posting things that she hopes are not true and discussing videos that she can’t find a link to post? Is Tina giving us fake news?

  1427. Tina says:

    I like heller, jonesy, but yeah he likely woukd have been a no.

    During a segment covering ex-CIA head John Brennan’s statements at the Aspen Security Forum in which Brennan called upon members of the Executive Branch to effectively execute a coup if Trump fires compromised special investigator, Robert Mueller, Limbaugh offered the opinion that the D.C. establishment has abandoned virtually all rationality and respect for the democratic process due to an overwhelming hatred of the outsider President and could be prepared to take extreme measures to ensure he is removed from office.

    Brennan is a loon and dangerous.

  1428. Jonesy says:

    WOW!!

    Pence on Fox News

    Trump could get rid of Obamacare exemptions for Congress and their staffs, with a Executive Order.

    Senators like McCain are old and rich, but their staffs would really freak out

  1429. Jonesy says:

    I like Heller too, NV is a tough state for GOP, but Sandoval is calling his shots with Medicaid.

  1430. Tina says:

    http://redstatewatcher.com/article.asp?id=88413

    Mr, bl, here it is.

    I viewed last night, but could not find it.

    I am the inly poster here with 100 accuracy on muh russian.

  1431. Tina says:

    Yes, he can do that. The kaw slecifically says that congress was not exempted.

    There is talk now of him killing parts of obumblercare through eo.

    I posted several times about not granting the exemption to congress. They are overpaid and largerly rich aholes.

  1432. I love Trump says:

    The RNC has an excellent ad criticizing the democrats for celebrating McCain’s vote. I believe that Obamacare will continue to be an albatross for the democrats because they voted for it. The voters will punish them again in 2018. The skinny repeal will happen after the 2018 elections. I don’t trust McCain. He will stab us in the back again. He’ll oppose tax cuts too. He hates Trump and will try to humiliate him again.

  1433. Jonesy says:

    Nobody takes Brennan or Clapper seriously.

    They are fake news similar to Robbie’s MSM friends.

    Can you believe Wobbles Rodham calls himself a conservative after voting for Hillary, Tina?

  1434. Tina says:

    If i recall corrctly, it was senator grassley who put that amendment i to the law, not to exempt congress. It passes, the aholes freaked, and ki g obumbler did an eo exempting them.

    The eo can be reverded. The congress will need to pass a law to exempt themselves.

  1435. Jonesy says:

    Would Trump banning the exemption cause Congress, to pass repeal?

    that is the question

  1436. Jonesy says:

    Tina, Pelosi also made sure big gubmint unions were exempt also.

  1437. Tina says:

    Congress will need to reverse grassleys amendment.

  1438. Jonesy says:

    Ironic. GOP Senate would have no problem passing a bill to exempt them from Obamacare, but cannot pass actual repeal

  1439. Tina says:

    It would force the congress to either become so triggered that theynreverse grassleys amendment, which would ve then vetoed, if it coukd even be passed.

    Or maybe bring them to the table.

    Trump has nothing to lose by no longer exempting the useless comgress.

    Remember the obumbler issued so many eos on obumblercare that could all be reversed.

    Also, if i remember, souter roberts deemed something a tax. Well, only congress has the power to deem it a tax. The sc has no such power. I would explore chipping away at that.

    I wonder if this will give Robbie pause to believe, without equivocation, every tidbit that his girlfriend guru, Maggie Haberman(NYT) tweets:

    sheeple, Robbie Rodham does not care. His hatred of Trump only thing that matters in his life. A True Deadender

  1443. Jonesy says:

    Tina, how many Civilians at John McCain’s War Monger Pentagon, are exempted.

    Or the CIA and FBI? Get them all on Obamacare

  1444. Jonesy says:

    Of course Medved had McCain on his radio show last night. Buttkissing.

    Does McCain ever think about how many boys died in Iraq due to he, Bush, and the Pentagon’s bad planning.?

  1445. Bitterlaw says:

    Since Jonesy is a better expert on the matryoshka than McCain, he must have served. Which branch, Jonesy?

  1446. Bitterlaw says:

    I disagreed with McCain’s vote but there is nothing he could do that will ever diminish the respect that I have for his service and sacrifice. People who call him a traitor are sad, pathetic losers who almost certainly did not serve or give even 1/1000th as much to this country as McCain. He is, unlike Donald Trump, a Republican. He is not perfect but he is better than any Democrat. GFY.

  1447. Bitterlaw says:

    1491 should say military. I have no idea what autocorrect did there.

    Scaramucci calls Reince “Reince Penis” and “rancid penis”

    In the public feud between Anthony Scaramucci and Reince Priebus, what hasn’t been fully explained is why Scaramucci so dislikes the president’s now-former chief of staff — a man he alternates between calling “Reince Penis” and “Rancid Penis,” according to an adviser to the White House.

  1449. PresidentPaul! says:

    Bitterlaw-
    What happened to McCain being a reliable republican vote with an 84% ACA lifetime rating on the Obamacare vote?

    (fake rating system)

  1450. PresidentPaul! says:

    What exactly are progressives “progressing” to?

    Former Territorial Army male soldier, 28, becomes Britain’s first transgender Muslim woman and is now married to a man.

    Jonesy, fbi and cia are covree unde fehp

  1452. Wes says:

    Of course since Bitterlaw has inside knowledge telling him Saddam moved all his mammoth stockpiles of WMDs under the watchful eye of US satellites and intelligence, Bitterlaw must have served and know where the WMDs are.

    What branch and where are the WMDs, Bitter?

  1453. Tina says:

    Imthink mccain made a weong decision.

    However, he has also been wrong on iraq, afghanistan, libya, and syria,

    He met with shrian al qaeda.

    It is what happens when you get involved in that cess pool over there
