    McCain: Arizona was about to get ‘screwed’ by GOP healthcare plan

  2. I love Trump says:

    If Trump focus on the economy, jobs and immigration, he will be okay. Also, the republicans need to pass a tax cut for the middle class and small businesses. It would help in 2018.

    JC does not like Rubio? Damn. Rubio will be devastated.

    Rubio inherited elephant ears and a larger left eye.

    Gives him the igor look.

    The transcript of Trump’s off the wall calls with the leaders of Australia and Mexico from January.

    “I won New Hampshire because New Hampshire is a drug-infested den,” Trump told Mexico’s president in a private call.

  6. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina – Has the US been attacked by any groups based in Afghanistan since September 11, 2001? I am not saying that the US should remain there forever but the goal was to eliminate it as a base from which the US could be attacked. It has worked so far. I would like to know what the Generals say about whether the US should retain a force there.

  7. Wes says:

    Dave forgets to mention this poll has people saying they voted for Obama over Romney by double digits when in fact Obama beat Romney by four. Skewed sample?

  8. Bitterlaw says:

    Robbie – Why can’t you just accept that Trump sucks but he was better than Hillary. Leave it at that. The links you post just feed the perception that you are a shill for the Democrats.

    Hate Trump every day like I do but learn to live with the hatred in relative peace.

  9. Robbie says:

    From his leaked call with Pena Nieto of Mexico.

    Trump admits border wall is boob bait: “the least important thing we are talking about, but politically this might be the most important.”

  10. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes – We got a new thread. Don’t poke the Wizard.

  11. Phil says:

    “According to a transcript obtained by the Washington Post”

    I have never heard of private transcripts of phone calls between a sitting president and foreign leaders leaked to any media outlet. Unheard of.

    Explain it to us, Robbie.

    – Some here refuse to accept Trump is in way over his head and a fraud. In order to save conservatism and the Republican Party, Trump is going to have to be effectively detached from the two.

    – They were leaked. It’s against the law, but it doesn’t change what Trump said.

  14. Tina says:

    Another leaked transcript

    Lol

  15. Tina says:

    Wall is going up.

    Who cares what thug jr from mexico.

  16. Tina says:

    Remember, the wp indicated that comedy would not testifynthat he told trump 3 times he was not under investigation.

  17. Robbie says:

    Tina says:
    August 3, 2017 at 9:57 am
    Another leaked transcript
    Lol

    – This is the one place where I agree with you. The leaks are unfair, unhelpful, and against the law.

    They do need to crack down on this.

  18. Phil says:

    I hope whoever Republicans nominate and hopefully elect in 2020 will do a better job plugging leaks than Trump. Not sure they can. Deep state Democrats now have made leaking to undermine a Republican President the norm. This will now be standard operating procedure.

    Ever hear of an Obama transcript of a private call to a foreign leader leaked? Me either.

  19. Bitterlaw says:

    I think that Trump is a fraud and is in way over his head. So what? He is better than Hillary. He is better than the Democrats’ nominee in 2020 unless he decides to become the Democrats’ nominee in 2020.

  20. Tina says:

    He needs to get rid of mcmaster though, he could be doing some leaking.

    Also, with rinse orubus gone, a lot of the internal leaks have died down.

  21. Tina says:

    Cnn blogger, acosta, is giving trump a run in this am tweet. Actually, i think acosta has him beat.

    Can a oerson that stupid be a reporter?

  22. Phil says:

    Trump is in way over his head.

    I don’t disagree. That said, the sabatoge of this president by Washington is unprecedented. Unfair and illegal would be an accurate description of what is happening. Any administration would be destroyed by this.

  23. Tina says:

    Kelly fires obama holdover who eas head if the program giving money to muslims to be nice to each other.

    The program is eliminated outright.

  24. Tina says:

    If they start locking these leakers up, it would stop. I hope sessions is working on this.

    I never believed the reports that trump would fire sessions. Those were fake news. Trump fires people without much notice.

    See comedy, ouch, etc.

  25. Tina says:

    Top Dem: Trump plan to slash legal immigration “would cripple agriculture” (link: http://hill.cm/Kpuamvp) hill.cm/Kpuamvp

    Lol whomis this top drat?

  26. Phil says:

    Bitter, had dinner with my sister and brother in law last night. Long time Republicans. They both agree with us. They have absolutely no use for Trump. My brother in law actually thinks Trump has a screw loose but like us is glad he stopped Hillary from getting in the WH.

  27. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    If Trump needs to be “detached” from conservatism, can you please ask McConnell, McCain, and Murk to pass that immigration bill without Trumps press conferences.

    That was one of the more conservative policy proposals submitted in my lifetime.

    YET, despite Trumps vocal support, you want him detached from conservatism.

  28. Trump says:

    Trump is doing what he said he would.

    And triggering his haters in the process.

    How is he ‘in over his head’?

  29. Robbie says:

    Bitterlaw says:
    August 3, 2017 at 10:01 am
    I think that Trump is a fraud and is in way over his head. So what? He is better than Hillary. He is better than the Democrats’ nominee in 2020 unless he decides to become the Democrats’ nominee in 2020.

    – Is that the new standard? As long as someone is better than the opponent, that person can act any way he/she wants?

    I know that’s not what you are arguing, but it should be both. The Republican candidate is better than the Democrat and the Republican acts like a sane, competent person.

  30. Phil says:

    Even if leaking had occurred during the Obama administration the left wing MSM would not have run with it.

    can anyone refute that with a straight face?

    I didn’t think so.

  31. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    I saw in the last thread, you are using polling data to determine your foreign policy ideas.

    Please let me know – DID YOU SERVE? And why would you use polling data to send men and women to die in Afghanistan for over 16 years? Is that the right place to be, LONG-TERM, to combat Islamic terrorism?

  32. Bitterlaw says:

    Robbie – As I said in 2016, you fight to win the battle that you are in. Trump sucked. Hillary was worse. Hopefully, 2024 will give us better options but if Trump is re-elected in 2020, the GOP will probably lose the White House for the next 8 years. Oh well. Life sucks.

  33. NYCmike says:

    Someone please tell me what policies Trump is looking to implement that would be considered “liberal”.

  34. Robbie says:

    Phil says:
    August 3, 2017 at 10:12 am
    Even if leaking had occurred during the Obama administration the left wing MSM would not have run with it.
    can anyone refute that with a straight face?
    I didn’t think so.

    – FoxNews would have, but they’re not left wing.

  35. NYCmike says:

    Maybe Bitterlaw will start judging Trump by the people he puts in administration positions and the policies they carry out.

    Also, by the policies that he proposes, or helps push.

    YES, I know, RADICAL IDEA.

  36. NYCmike says:

    “– FoxNews would have”

    -B*llsh*t.

    I know I would be pissed if they had done that.

  37. Trump says:

    Obama admin flouted laws openly.

    Nobody cared.

  38. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – $1 Trillion in infrastructure funding is the New Deal on steroids. It is not conservative.

    NYC to say “But we haven’t seen the plan yet.” Zzzzzzzzz. We know the goal – blow $1 Trillion on government-funded construction projects.

  39. Robbie says:

    NYCmike says:
    August 3, 2017 at 10:18 am
    “– FoxNews would have”
    -B*llsh*t.
    I know I would be pissed if they had done that

    – Oh, please. FoxNews absolutely would have reported on an Obama leak like this. It’s news, regardless of how it was obtained.

  40. Tina says:

    In sjw land, you fight to lose.

    See rottie, a losah.

  41. Bitterlaw says:

    I do not like Trump’s immigration plan. I have no problem with the current level of legal immigration. I respect the people who come here legally.

  42. Trump says:

    In fact, GOP enabled obama.
    See corker and Iran deal.

    There is no need to leak, if all law breaking is blatantly open.

  43. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    I have opposed that spending since the start, UNTIL I have seen details.

    I was relying on Republicans in CONGRESS to delay until those details came in.

    YES, I know – pretty foolish to rely on “Republicans”.

  44. Tina says:

    Fox news is not right wing either.

  45. Tina says:

    Do not rely on the r congress.

    They are liars led by weak people

  46. NYCmike says:

    “I do not like Trump’s immigration plan.”

    -You are FOR new immigrants receiving open-ended welfare benefits?

    You are against stopping that horrible policy?

  47. NYCmike says:

    FOX had enough illegal activities to report on without getting leaked information.

    I don’t think Ailes would have risked it. There has to be some law-breaking going on to release phone transcripts.

  48. Tina says:

    Who’d have believed a Republican controlled Congress would prove more effective at blocking a Republican POTUS’s agenda than the Democrats?

    Sad, but true

  49. Robbie says:

    Trump’s immigration proposal would have a much better chance of success had he not advocated for a 50% cut in legal immigration.

  50. NYCmike says:

    ” I respect the people who come here legally.”

    -Who doesn’t?

    That said, why should they receive all of the benefits they do? Why can’t the system return to one where people were sponsored by family members who provided for them in some ways?

  51. Tina says:

    I doubt there are leaked transcripts. The wp has been terrible with their leaked information in the past. See comedy, a string of 8’straight stories, all false.

  52. Tina says:

    Blogger acosta, cnn, is melting down on twitter.

    He should just admit that he did not know what he was saying, he learned something, etc.

  53. NYCmike says:

    “Trump’s immigration proposal would have a much better chance of success had he not advocated for a 50% cut in legal immigration.”

    -WOW, you must go to the John Boehner school of negotiating!
    Take off some of your cards you are willing to deal on the table BEFORE the negotiations start, just like the House used to with Obama, when they would come out and say “We will not cut funding….blah..blah..blah…”.

    Obama would laugh, and say Thanks very much.

  54. Phil says:

    That’s right, Robbie, and the rest of the MSM would have dropped any leak like a hot potato. Ignored the hell out of it.

    Obama would have gotten his usual pass by 95 percent of the media assuring he scated on any unflattering story out there.

    You know the drill.

  55. Trump says:

    Think of cretin Robbie as water cart for the dnc, and it all makes sense.

  56. Tina says:

    It seems like they dropped the irs investigating conservatives. I mean the smart ones in the house rs didmnot do mich either.

  57. Tina says:

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/08/03/5th-trump-judicial-nominee-confirmed-outpacing-obama-bush.amp.html

    I gave some credit to the ky drunk, however, more credit goes to chairman grassley.

  58. Tina says:

    Senate way ahead, but well behind in staffing sub cabinet people.

    The worst evah

  59. Phil says:

    The GOP in Washington is a joke.

    Schumer laughing his ass off on a daily basis. Who can blame him.

  60. Trump says:

    Carrier

  61. Tina says:

    More than 50% of all immigrant households receive welfare benefits, compared to only 30% of native households in US

    Sdi is a big immigrant scam.

  62. Tina says:

    Schumah runs the joint. With weak leadership, no surpise.

    i have called out little mitchie since 2010.

  63. Jonesy says:

    Quinnihack was awful in 2016, just like Robbie.

  64. Tina says:

    Hmm,, the wp story is recycled. At least the one linked at drudge.

  65. Jonesy says:

    Phil, Schumer is not laughing in private. GOP is confirming judges at a record pace.

  66. Tina says:

    THye just recycled a story involving a january 27th transcript.

    No doubt leaked by people now gone.

  67. Bitterlaw says:

    -You are FOR new immigrants receiving open-ended welfare benefits?

    You are against stopping that horrible policy?

    I should have been more precise. I DO NOT LIKE TRUMP’S PROPOSED PLAN TO REDUCE LEGAL IMMIGRATION. I CONTINUE TO OPPOSE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. GFY. YOU KNEW WHAT I MEANT.

  68. Jonesy says:

    This crap with the leaks is all Minutia.

    No POTUS has lost a re-election with a good economy since before world War 1

  69. Jonesy says:

    If the GOP can pass tax reform with a reduction in the Corporate Tax, high paying jobs will surge back to the US.

    does anyone here refute that?

  70. Bitterlaw says:

    What percentage of legal immigrants receive welfare benefits? Considering the time and cost of going through the process to come to the US legally, it seems that they are driven, hard-working people who would not seek benefits. Certainly not at a 50% rate.

  71. Tina says:

    Yeah, they are not new leaks. That stuff already came out months ago. I think in feb or march.

  72. Trump says:

    Damn, Trump is devastated that the moron does not like his immigration plan.

    Absolutely devastated, I tell you.

    Morons still cannot figure out that this is Trump’s key marker for his reelection. You’d figure they’d realize this, after trump used immigration to steamroll the GOP last year.

  73. Phil says:

    I don’t refute it, Jonesy but getting 60 votes in the senate is almost impossible. Democratic votes would be needed and no way will Democrats help us get there.

  74. Phil says:

    Schemer will release a few red state Democrats to vote for tax reduction but not enough to get to 60. He does this all the time.

  75. Jonesy says:

    Trump Admin has also purged bogus voter rolls in Florida and other swing states.

  76. Trump says:

    Does anyone realize that Trump admin can unilaterally reduce the number of green cards issued by whatever percent they want?

    The admin is authorized by law for so many, but there is no obligation to issue any green card.

  77. Jonesy says:

    Trump, Robbie belongs to a Union. That is a big part of it all with him

  78. Jonesy says:

    Phil, confirming Judges and a good economy gets him re-elected.

    These pollsters such as Monmouth, PPP, and Quinnihack were discredited in 2016, and will be again.

    Hillary voters like Robbie only take them to heart.

    I Kennedy retires in next few years as expected, and Ginsburg holds on, Most Conservatives will hold their noses and vote Trump for SC alone in 2020. Stating the obvious but If he gets to replace Ginsburg , Breyer Thomas, the SC will be safe for my lifetime.

  81. Jonesy says:

    Good point GPO. We still need a block of 5 Real Conservatives to negate Judas Roberts, even if Kennedy is replaced.

  87. Chicon says:

    86 – quit yelling.

  88. Jonesy says:

    Rumors, and that is what they are, is that Flake is really polling badly and is not raising money.

    AZ GOP may have to find two strong candidates for 2018

  89. Bitterlaw says:

    That should be easy, Jonesy. Tina told us that Arizona is overrun with conservatives who can’t wait to replace McCain and Flake (even though McCain and Flake keep getting elected).

  90. Chicon says:

    If any of the 357 2016 gop candidates had won the election and made the policy proposals that Trump has made, most here would give high marks to that President.

    Trump is anything but a seasoned politician; and his personal style and manner of operations in the White House is tough for many to deal with (often including me). I try to focus on the policies he has or tried to implement, and not his jack-assery.

    Even Robbie – a known Trump hater – has admitted that he’s aligned with Trump on the two most important topics to Robbie.

  91. Chicon says:

    Anyone is better than that deadender McCain……

  92. Tina says:

    Bitter twister is lying again, as usual.
    I

  93. Tina says:

    Wp just recycked that story in mexico and oz.

    With resorct to oz, he told the om that he is not taking his refugees.

    With respect to the wall, he tokd the jr thug that he was building the wall. This was in january. We no, as of this week, that dhs went ahead with wall planning.

  94. Tina says:

    If flake is primaried, bitter twister will bkame the r voters that primaried him and endlessly tell us how flake was entitled tomthe seat.

  95. Bitterlaw says:

    A “deadender” is a candidate who is nominated in order to send a message even when it is guaranteed that the candidate will lose the General Election. Christine O’Donnell was the first deadender recognized at HHR.

    A “deadender” is not a politician who votes differently than other members of a party UNLESS the it is somebody like Rand Paul or the House Freedom Caucus who only want to vote “no” in order to send a message.

  96. Bitterlaw says:

  97. Tina says:

    Trump didn’t answer questions from press on whether he plans to fire McMaster, or whether New Hampshire is a drug-infested den, per @ToluseO

  98. Trump says:

    “How many IQ points do you lose from Trump Derangement Syndrome or similar conditions of blind political rage?”

    Especially if you don’t have many points to begin with?

  99. Tina says:

    Ohgforgot, nh is a drug infested den.

    Very similar to what he said on the campaign trail.

    Beautiful state, I want to buy a home in this state, but there is a drug problem here…/paraphrasing.

  100. Trump says:

    The moron defines who is “deadender” is or is not.

    Go f u c k the high horse you rode in on.

    Noboday cares about your definition.

  101. Bitterlaw says:

    If flake is primaried, bitter twister will bkame the r voters that primaried him and endlessly tell us how flake was entitled tomthe seat.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzz. I have never said that any politician should not face a primary opponent. What I have said, and Tina knows that I have said it, is that I will never vote for a primary challenger because there is no guarantee that the challenger will win the General Election.

    Tina would be happy to see a Democrat be elected to any office as long as the Republican incumbent was taken out by a primary challenger who sent a message.

  102. Bitterlaw says:

    Noboday cares about your definition.

    Then why did you respond to it?

  103. Chicon says:

    Bitter, given this definition, an elected member of the House Freedom Caucus cannot be a deadender, correct?

  104. Tina says:

    Bitter twister, lied again, never said that in 105.

  105. Trump says:

    To point out your stupidity, moron.

  106. Trump says:

    Look, the hypocrite moron wants to conrol the language.

  107. Tina says:

    I am saying flake is polling poorly. A lot f his votes are headscratchers.

    If he is primaried, i hope it is an upgrade and want that r to prevail.

  108. Trump says:

    With his TDS, the moron is knocking on sub-cretin level “intelligence”.

  109. Trump says:

    Almost Robbie-level.

  110. Bitterlaw says:

    Chicon – reread this -UNLESS the it is somebody like Rand Paul or the House Freedom Caucus who only want to vote “no” in order to send a message.

    They would be elected Deadenders who want to send messages when they have insufficient numbers to pass anything but are happy to vote against everything.

  111. Tina says:

    I have always voted r.

    As indicated, since I came here, i am not a registered republican, but a conservative indepedent.

    Translated, a decline to state in ca.

    I re registered from r to decline to state when bush 41 wrecked the reagan revolution.

  112. Tina says:

    At least bush 41 did not blow up the me and the economy like shrub 43 did. A disaster, unfortunately.

  113. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina – I will ask Wes since I trust his research.

    Wes – How often does a Republican lose a Senate primary to a more conservative challenger and that challenger then goes on to win the General Election. I don’t recall any races like that but you spend more time following races than I do.

  114. Bitterlaw says:

    shrub?

    Is Tina channeling Molly Ivins from beyond the grave?

    I think this srticle is ok. I think they can learn from pinata, who took over cos in 1994.

  116. Tina says:

    It is too bad if he got primaried, he is not entitled to the seat.

  117. Cash Cow TM says:

    Stuck in I-70 traffic for last 2 hours near Columbus.

    Bad wreck ahead…

  118. Bitterlaw says:

    he is not entitled to the seat.

    Nobody is entitled to anything. However, so far, the majority of voters in Arizona want him in the Senate. If they change their minds, I hope another Republican wins the seat.

  119. Tina says:

    Maybe, maybe not. We shall see what haooens re flake

    I used the word if and he appears to be polling poorly,

  120. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina – If Flake is the candidate in 2018, would you prefer that he lose to a Democrat? I would not.

  121. Tina says:

    No, bl.

    If he were running here against kamela, i would vote for flake.

  122. NYCmike says:

    “A “deadender” is not a politician who votes differently than other members of a party UNLESS the it is somebody like Rand Paul or the House Freedom Caucus who only want to vote “no” in order to send a message.”

    -Except when they vote YES, and “real, non-deadender Republicans”, like Murk, McCain and Collins vote NAY.

  123. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    New immigration proposal says NO WELFARE for new immigrants.

    Why would you be against that for incoming immigrants? Why should the government, as they did in the past, make new immigrants be sponsored by current citizens who can help take care of them while they start a new life?

    This “wanting to send a message” tripe is b*llsh*t.

    These supposed “deadenders”, if given a chance to lead, would propose the same policies in their bills that people like McCain, Flake, Murk, etc usually campaign on.

  126. Bitterlaw says:

    Why would you be against that for incoming immigrants?

    I did not say that I was against it. I specifically referred to the limitation on legal immigration. Do I have to go ALL CAPS again?

    I’m not sure if a provision limiting benefits would be constitutional for people who become citizens. If it limited it for legal immigrants, it might be constitutional. Again, I would like to know how many people expend the time and money to come here legally just to obtain welfare.

  127. Bitterlaw says:

    This “wanting to send a message” tripe is b*llsh*t because I like deadenders.

    I fixed it for you.

  128. NYCmike says:

    Got it.

    You would vote AGAINST the Cotton-Perdue immigration bill, which ends welfare for new immigrants, because you are for allowing an unlimited amount of legal immigrants into the United States.

    BUT, only “deadenders” send messages.

  129. NYCmike says:

    I don’t even know who the “deadenders” are anymore, due to overuse of the term from “supposed Republicans”.

    At first, “deadenders” were a fringe group, holding up any proceedings in the House.

    Of course, they voted YAY to pass a bill which they definitely gave in on some of their principles.

    But then, your hero, McCain, and his allies, Murk, Collins, those “non-deadenders”, voted NAY, because the COMPROMISE was too conservative in nature.

  132. Bitterlaw says:

    because you are for allowing an unlimited amount of legal immigrants into the United States.

    We do not currently have an unlimited amount of legal immigration into the United State. I did not advocate for the idea that we should. What I did say is that I would NOT REDUCE the current number of legal immigrants permitted into the US. How you turned that into advocating for unlimited legal immigration I do not know.

    Is there good ventilation at your business? The truck fumes are getting to you.

  133. Bitterlaw says:

    Actually, McCain voted no because the bill did not repeal AND replace Obamacare as he said he would during the campaign. The bill did not repeal OR replace Obamacare.

  134. NYCmike says:

    Trump has nominated good judges, has proposed a conservative immigration plan, tried to work with people like Price, Ryan, McConnell, Meadows, etc to craft a healthcare bill.

    His cabinet is composed of competent people, for the most part (other than Rick Perry).

    What does Trump need to do to get people like jason, MD, Robbie, Author, “CG”, etc to vote for him in 2020, and support him, along with a Republican Congress, NOW?

  135. NYCmike says:

    Where is McCain’s bill to do what he said he wanted to do? Cruz had a bill to repeal and replace. Why didn’t McCain champion Ted’s bill?

    Why didn’t McCain alert McConnell that he was a NAY?

  137. NYCmike says:

    If we stopped automatic welfare payments, I would probably go for allowing the same amount as we do now.

    Negotiating point.

    Of course, “Republicans” like you, McCain, Flake, Graham, etc would NEVER go for stopping welfare payments.

    BUT, they are not “deadenders”. They just NEVER compromise. It is their way, or NAY way.

  138. NYCmike says:

    “probably yes it is the right place.”

    -HISTORY says otherwise.

    What one government has been in power over the whole area?

    “What does Trump need to do to get people like jason, MD, Robbie, Author, “CG”, etc to vote for him in 2020”

    that won’t happen … and he does not need them.

    a lot hinges on the 2018 midterms.

    if the gop keeps the house and wins three or more senate seats, the senate stomps the dems like brady and the patriots against the eagles

    and trump crusies to reelection in 2020.

    if the dems take the house … the term “quagmire” comes to mind.

    if the 2020 election were held today, the media and robbie would be all happy until about 9pm … when the results from the midwest came in.

    if anything trump would win by more today than in 2016. nh and mn would probably both go red.

    tribal loyalties more than islamic loyalties need to be encouraged.

    the wahabi schools need to be shut and the tribes need to be encouraged, “bribed”, to keep the salafis out, and the central government needs to build a non-muslim army to back the tribes when they need help.

    “Trump appeared with Republican Sens. Tom Cotton (Ark.) and David Perdue (Ga.) at the White House to unveil a modified version of a bill the senators first introduced in February to create a “merit-based” immigration system that would put a greater emphasis on the job skills of foreigners over their ties to family in the United States.

    The legislation seeks to reduce the annual distribution of green cards awarding permanent legal residence to just over 500,000 from more than 1 million. Trump promised on the campaign trail to take a harder line on immigration, arguing that the growth in new arrivals had harmed job opportunities for American workers.”

  146. NYCmike says:

    500,000 new legal immigrants is NOT enough for Bitterlaw.

    Let’s play NYC’s stupid game. Why would NYC allow any legal immigration? If 500,000 is too many, how does he know that 400,000 is enough? He should advocate for 0 legal immigrants to be consistent.

    – If McMaster’s leaking like a sieve (spoiler: he’s not), Trump would have fired him long ago. As far as I know, he’s still employed and he was just given permission to fire Bannonites on the NSC.

    The one who is leaking is Steve Bannon. Reporters routinely say he loves to talk on background. And right now, Bannon and his ignorant band of nationalists are getting routed by the generals like McMaster and Kelly. No wonder there’s so much information coming out that makes McMaster, supposedly, look bad. The people getting fired are trying to take their pound of flesh on the way out the door.

    And if Susan Rice had broken the law, she’d have been prosecuted. Well, has she? So far, nope and I bet Sessions doesn’t indict her either tomorrow. Bringing up Rice was chaff deployed to take some of the heat off Trump’s IDIOTIC, STUPID, and INSANE Obama wiretap tweet.

    Also, Flynn was not the target of a tap, you dummy. He was on a call with the Russian ambassador who was being tapped per standard operating procedure. Kislyak was the target, not Flynn. Stop with your lying.

Trump, since he was inaugurated has routinely lied, tweeted incendiary and baseless claims, attacked people in very personal terms, attacked his own “party” (he’s really a liberal Democrat), and, until recently, routinely surrounded himself with clowns and fools (see Sebastian Gorka for example).

    So actually, I’m judging him on his current actions. You’re the one who has turned a blind eye to his idiocy while continuing to carp about Republicans in Congress.

  195. Redmen4ever says:

    This Q poll is squirrelly. Prior to the snafu in the Senate, majorities favored both (1) ACA and (2) repeal and replace. One way to make sense of this is that a crucial percentage of people like the good parts of Obamacare and dislike the bad parts (as though the dividing line between the good parts and the bad parts were clear). Another way is that a crucial percentage of people believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and that you can reform health care without making any tough decisions. Now Q comes along and says that a majority want a single payer system. Maybe they think the single payer would be Jeff Bezos. Or maybe this poll is whack. Other polling shows single-paying gaining among Democrats but well below a majority.

    NOW, he is more reliable than McCain, Murk, Collins, etc.

    – You mean the Senators who changed the filibuster rule to make sure Gorsuch was confirmed.

    He’s not a real Republican or a conservative. He’s using the Republican Party and they’re trying their best to use him. It’s not working out so well though, is it?

    as i have been pointing out

    we do not need cheap labor from mexico any more

    europe allowed unfettered immigration because they had a decrease in population. they wanted an underclass to clean the sewers … they let too many in and are facing severe problems because of it.

  232. NYCmike says:

    “– You mean the Senators who changed the filibuster rule to make sure Gorsuch was confirmed.”

    -They are SUPPOSED to do that, aren’t they?

    Why are your expectations lower for a “liberal Democrat” than for elected Republicans?

  233. NYCmike says:

    “He’s not a real Republican or a conservative.”

    He is also not a Democrat, liberal Democrat, or Hillary Democrat.

  234. NYCmike says:

    Odd.

    Jim Justice was a republican, who switched to dem in 2015 to run for governor.

  249. Trump says:

    Jim Justice – non-ideological.

  250. Jonesy says:

    I am in your Head, Robbie Rodham. And there is a lot of space to rent.

  251. Jonesy says:

    Who is Kasie Hunt?

  252. Jonesy says:

    If true, with a Dem Gov switching parties, how does the Trump is sinking meme stay afloat?

  253. Jonesy says:

    Martin at NY Crimes is now reporting Justice will switch at a rally with Trump in WV

  254. Wes says:

    Damn! I expected Justice to stay a Dem.

    The last two Governors to switch parties–Buddy Roemer of LA and Wally Hickel of AK–also switched to the GOP. This will put Dems at 15 governorships–their lowest point since the Roaring ’20s.

    That Justice sees a switch back to the GOP as the best course for political viability probably bodes poorly for Joe Manchin as well.

  255. Robbie says:

    Imagine if Palin hadn’t screwed over her own Lt Governor in 2014.

  256. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    France: YouGov has polled Macron at 36% Approval Rating, with French feeling that Macron is continuing the “old policies” while hiding them behind nice speeches and stuff … who would have thunk? I’m shocked. SHOCKED! I tell you.
    No pity from he, the French got what they voted for.

    That was fast!

  257. Wes says:

    I’m just hoping Ed Gillespie can recapture VA-Gov now to offset the Dem recapture of NJ-Gov. That will mean Dems will have to capture a full 10 governorships next year to drop the GOP to a minority of governorships.

  258. Tina says:

  263. Jonesy says:

    Whoops he won anyways

  264. Jonesy says:

    263. Wes, do you think Manchin is now on a Island by himself?

  265. Jonesy says:

    265. Very fast Sheeple. Fillon is a bigger moron than Hillary.

  266. Wes says:

    Jonesy, after Bevin won the primary, the KYGOP from McConnell on down backed him fully. That’s why he beat Conway.

  267. Wes says:

    Manchin may be another Tom Daschle, Jonesy–a popular Senator unaware of how the state’s partisan lean has moved out from under him.

  268. Tina says:

    Hmm, just like sessions.

  276. NYCmike says:

    “Trumpish buffoon who lacks basic skills to be effective governor.”

    -Ca$h Cow gets it right. Trump is wrong to appear with a Democrat who wanted to raise taxes on the good people of West Virginia.

    Even cows know that he should just wait for Manchin and/or Capito to get enough seniority, then the feds would pay for everything.

  277. Wes says:

    Will Justice now put his money behind the eventual Republican nominee against Manchin?

    For the record, I was wrong about the most recent party switches by Governors. There were two after the ones I mentioned. The most recent gubernatorisl switches are as follows:

    Buddy Roemer (LA) D to R

    Wally Hickel (AK) AIP to R

    Charlie Crist (Weathervane) R to I

    Lincoln Chafee (Metric system) I to D

  278. NYCmike says:

    “– Epic nonsense. The KY party and McConnell got behind him as soon as he won.”

    -Whom did they support during the primary?

  279. NYCmike says:

    These reports feel like exit polls.

    Why can’t DC creatures, like Robbie, just simply wait for a public statement to be made about the grand juries?

  280. Robbie says:

    The “red line” Trump established in his NYT interview has been crossed. Will he act?

    “the FBI is reviewing financial records related to the Trump Organization, as well as Trump, his family members, including Donald Trump Jr., and campaign associates.”

    – They’re under no obligation to confirm or deny, but Trump’s own legal team acknowledged it’s formation this afternoon.

  286. Wes says:

    Mikey’s brain cells never moved beyond the haploid stage. The KYGOP never officially endorsed any candidate during yhe primary. Jim Comer was the initial frontrunner till allegations of abuse surfaced about him. He and Hal Heiner then savaged each other, letting Bevin sneak up the middle.

    After that, the KYGOP went all in for Bevin and helped him win.

  287. Robbie says:

    Tina says:
    August 3, 2017 at 4:34 pm
    The proceedings are secret under federal,law.
    But the jebot knows more than legal counsel.

    – The proceedings inside the grand jury are secret, but not the formation of one and any witness who wants to talk is free to say whatever he/she want.

  288. NYCmike says:

    “He and Hal Heiner then savaged each other, letting Bevin sneak up the middle.”

    -Translation:
    More voters liked Bevin than the 2 other guys.

    Verdict: Matt Bevin overwhelmingly supported by sneaky Kentucky’ans, per Wes Math

  289. Tina says:

    Circa news got ine wrong. Rice has no new access to intelligence. Only access to her own work product.

  290. NYCmike says:

    “Mikey’s brain cells never moved beyond the haploid stage.”

    -The main stage had U2, so the haploid stage isn’t that bad, considering.

  291. Jonesy says:

    Wes, the KY race and 2016, are the reason I do not believe most polling anymore.

    I went to bad thinking Conway would win by 10, due to RCP , Louisville paper polling etc… I woke up and Bevan won big.

    First, it seems unlikely a president can be indicted.

  320. NYCmike says:

    “Trump voters want Judges, good economy, defense. They are staying put”

    -Can’t disagree much with this. Any Democrat President will be exactly like Obama, and the media will cover for him or her.

    There is no choice, really. You have to vote Republican on the federal level, despite their ineptitude, as the other party is incompetent, corrupt, and naive about foreign policy.

    – I think you’re focusing on the wrong person. I think it’s Manafort who is in big trouble. Whatever I think of Trump, we still haven’t seen anything that suggests he colluded.

  327. Robbie says:

    Until we start to hear suggestions the special council’s office is revisiting whether a president can be indicted, I don’t see any reason for Trump to worry about actual legal jeopardy. That doesn’t make this good news, but Mike Flynn and Paul Manafort are the ones who I believe should be sweating it out right now.

  328. NYCmike says:

    “That doesn’t make this good news, but Mike Flynn and Paul Manafort are the ones who I believe should be sweating it out right now.”

    -I will love to see what laws were broken, by whom, and to what ends.

    If they did illegal things, put them in jail.

    Otherwise, immigration reforms show huge public support, Wes to say they are overwhelmingly negative, and Robbie will repeat the bill can’t be passed.

  329. NYCmike says:

    “The group released polling data from Florida, Michigan, Indiana, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Those states were won by Donald Trump in 2016 and will get to vote for or against incumbent Democratic Senators next November.”

    -It would not make sense to make this an issue for 2018./

    -I forget if Robbie mentioned the statements by Trump, which the media hyped as police brutality, but MD mentioned it. MD mentioned while also saying Trump was weak, because a police commissioner somewhere said Trump was wrong.

    Well, here is a different take, from someone more knowledgeable than everyones friend, MD.

  335. NYCmike says:

    Hugh,

    What’s done is done.

    A Republican Congress can still get things done, or set a good narrative for 2018, especially in those states with a 2018 Senate election.

    Get those Senators on record for higher taxes and unlimited immigration!

  336. Tina says:

    Manafort is not in trouble. His stuff involves ukraine.

    It was already looked at.

    Ukraine is not russia.

    More than 20K RSVP’d to see President Trump in WV tonight… Stadium only seats 9,000..YUUUUGE!

  361. Trump says:

    Crowd size does not indicate voters. Don’t you know the narrative?

  362. Trump says:

    20k for a 6,000 seat center in Youngstown a week or so ago.

    Question is, will they show up on Election Day?

  363. Phil says:

    They do love Trump in WV. I think he got 67 percent there. Of course, Manchin backed Hillary until the end even after she blurted out that she was going to get all the coal miner’s jobs. Unbelievable that they are poised to put that two faced guy back in the senate. Of course, this is the same electorate that kept electing Rockefeller over and over and he did nothing but throw in with the Democratic leadership’s war against coal. Who can understand WV anyway? Not me.

  364. Jonesy says:

    Sheets Byrd too Phil

  365. Jonesy says:

    Endorsement from a GOP Governor could help take out manchin

  366. Phil says:

    Let’s hope so, Jonesy.

  369. Wes says:

    Phil, let’s not forget Rockefeller retired because Shelley Capito was running against him and leading the polls. His time was up in West Virginia. That’s why he quit rather than seek a sixth term in the Senate.

  370. Wes says:

    illogical?

    MORE VOTERS THAN THE OTHER GUYS is illogical?

    Would you have preferred a caucus, perhaps, to get a result you like?

    Hmmmmm

    Honestly, Mikey, your last surviving brain cell must be quite lonely.

    What was illogical about the post I referenced wasn’t that Bevin won but that you claimed that Kentuckyans overwhelmingly supported Bevin in the primary when he barely scraped by Comer.

    As for the result I liked, I honestly wsn’t emotionally invested after Comer and Heiner basically destroyed each other. I was concerned about Bevin’s win because of his disastrous campaign against McConnell a year earlier.

    Nonetheless, Bevin ran a smart campaign, mending fences with Mitch McConnell and convincing the KYGOP to invest in him.

    It paid off. He won convincingly and had coattails, helping Republicans win all but two downballot races. As Governor, he has been successful and invested heavily in helping Republicans win the State House in 2016.

    While you had to autofellate your micropenis over how Bevin had held McConnell to 60% in the 2014 primary (and lost by ONLY 25%), I look at his success as both a candidate and Governor and am impressed.

    He surprised me by learning quickly from all the missteps of 2014 and bridging the gap between the Tea Partiers snd the mainline Republicans to form the nucleus of a successful electoral coalition against a man widely considered likely to beat him. As such, I have no problem with Bevin and don’t feel any caucus was ever necessary to install a different candidate.

    Bevin has proved himself snd deserves a decisive reelection in two years.

  371. Redmen4ever says:

    PPP and Pulse Polls: looking for wedge issues. Republicans used to use social conservative issues to pry votes from the Democrats. With Trump, it’s populist positions. Democrats continue to peddle the idea that Republicans are gonna throw mama from the train.

  372. NYCmike says:

    Wes is into robotic micro-penises?

    Does Tink know about this fet ish?

  373. NYCmike says:

    “overwhelmingly supported”

    Wes,

    they should have been in quotes. Sorry, I did not think you would have needed that extra tell to denote my sarcasm.

    I gave you more credit than I should have. I must be falling for Jonesy’s constant stroking of your ego.

  374. NYCmike says:

    I am not sure how the A-Holes don’t identify with Trump.

    There he is, with all of this crap swirling around, with Robbie’s lame pronouncements about grand juries and such, and he is in WV telling Democrats, the media, and Russia to GFT’s.

  375. NYCmike says:

    “He surprised me by learning quickly from all the missteps of 2014”

    -Odd. For all that you supposedly know, I was not surprised by his performance at all.

    Maybe hearing him in interviews on more conservative outlets (talk radio) gave me that more knowledgeable opinion, as you would actively shun such a medium.

  376. Cash Cow TM says:

    Home again, jiggity jig.

    Gov. Justice was encouraged to run for governor by Joe Manchin.

    they are good friends.

    doubt if Justice will endorse whatever R is running against Manchin.
    But I have been wrong before….

  377. NYCmike says:

    Justice is trying to save Manchin, if what Ca$h Cow says is true. That is my opinion.

    I don’t trust any person who was trying to raise taxes, and is now speaking about changing party’s.

    -McCain looking to cement his legacy…..he goes to Schumer.

    Meanwhile, Cotton/Perdue bill should be pushed by leadership.

  384. NYCmike says:

    Phil,

    You may be correct.

    I underestimated how much Trump pisses people off.

  385. janz says:

    I kind of agree with Phil in that the “powers that be” are determined to find something on Trump and push him out of office. It reminds me of an IRS audit, in that they always find something, even if it’s a bouquet of flowers they feel was inappropriately added in as a “deduction.”

    The very fact that this Russian investigation has taken a dramatic turn into looking into all of the Trump family finances — hiring lawyers skilled in this specialty — is troubling. And, the R congress is doing little to assist Trump. Maybe that’s why their approval rating is now 10%

  386. Phil says:

    Not a matter of pissing people off, Mike.

    You see, he wasn’t supposed to be elected. The presidency was Hillary’s rightful job.

    He must be removed.

  387. Phil says:

    404

    The R congress is doing little to assist Trump?

    Try actively assisting Democrats to give him the boot.

    Fix is in.

    As I said earlier, I will go further. Deep state Washington and their allies in the MSM have already started digging on Pence. Think the Washington Post is not looking hard for whatever they can find? Democrats don’t accept election losses. We should have already learned that by now.

  388. janz says:

    Furthermore, as the news keeps rolling, out day after day, spewing all of Trump’s defects, in-your-face behavior, media confrontations, hyperbole, there is nary a backwards curiosity by the MSM at all the Obama obfuscations, policy faux pas (lies), lack of transparency, and so on by Obama/Clinton.

    Equal justice is just not there in the reporting of R versus D administrations.

  389. janz says:

    Phil, it just gets more depressing by the day, in observing the conduct of those supposedly elected to represent a certain more conservative way to govern.

  390. janz says:

    Tonight I watched a bit of the WV rally. For the first time, in lieu of the latest saga in the Trump investigation, I wondered what would happen to the people who are still demonstrating such enthusiasm and hopefulness in Trump’s presidency should he be ousted? Will they simply quietly go away or will they revolt?

  391. Wes says:

    Amazingly Mikey inevitably claims to have deep intuitive knowledge about everything.

    Bevin ran a disastrous campaign in 2014 and won the primary in 2015 only because Comer snd Heiner disqualified each other.

    Mikey knew all along though Bevin would be a worthwhile candidate for Governor.

    I call BS on this.

    Word of advice too, Mikey:

    When you twist a statement I make about you into a joke, try to make the joke make sense.

    Whatever that was you came up with after I mentioned your self-pleasuring over Bevin’s 2014 primary performsnce made evdn less sense than your usual moronic drivel.

    “SanDiegoCitzen, that was a joke.”

    I know, but do not assume there could not be a change in California politics in a more conservative direction. There is an initiative measure being circulated to repeal a recently enacted gas tax. Have heard it has enough signatures to place it on the ballot. A poll showed 58% of California voters oppose the gas tax.

    There was a column in the LA Times in June entitled: “Political Road Map: Here’s how that gas tax increase could given California Republicans a lifeline in 2018.”

    Brown and his cronies are going way far left on many issues, and it appears to be creating a backlash.

  393. janz says:

    SDC

    IMO, it will take nothing short of a miracle to turn CA from deep blue to red. The gas tax repeal may look hopeful only because it represents a savings for people living here. Pocketbook politics always seems to catch a voter’s interest and possibly their vote.

    However, this state is so enmeshed in a social progressive mind set, that nothing short of a crowbar or a horrific financial earthquake will pry the populace away from their insane thinking!

  394. Tina says:

    I signed. It, sdc.

  395. SanDiegoCitzen says:

    413. Maybe, but am beginning to see some discontent in the middle class, particularly among Latinos.

    Two problems potentially for the Democrats — they have run out of other people’s money to spend, which explains the need to tax.

    A substantial amount of the richest people in California, particular Tech people, have sheltered their money, and believe they should be exempt from paying for the policies they support, and favor higher taxes on others.

    For example Google and Apple. It used to be they were put on a pedestal, and no liberal would criticize them. Now they are being called tax cheats and foreign labor exploiters.

    California could go the way of the French Revolution, the elites who supported the execution of the king may soon find themselves headless.

  396. Cash Cow TM says:

    I genuinely think Justice has a big heart and cares about people. He has been a well-liked coach of both boy and girl HS basketball teams. He did a lot to help those in and around White Sulphur Springs during last year’s devastating flood.
    ***********************************************
    But IMO, Justice is a mini-version of Trump.

    –Very wealthy; Wealthiest person in WV (over a billion $ in wealth)

    –An outsider in the political process who never before held political office

    –but has in past contributed financially to various politicians

    –has switched official party affiliation often…

    –does not really have any keen understanding of the process of how government works; thinks govt should run like a big business (owned by one individual) should run

    –tries to bully and shame those who oppose his proposals

    During the WV legislative session earlier this year, Justice was so mad and frustrated with the Ds in the legislature (particularly the House Ds) who fought against his proposals that my sources said he almost switched parties during the session to be an R.

    But he also slung plenty of stu.ff at the Rs in the legislature, called them names, ridiculing them, etc.
    ____________________________
    Theories on Facebook abound as to why Justice switched from D to R. These include:

    –to pave the way for Joe Manchin to switch from D to R. (even though Manchin said again today that he intends to stay a D)

    –to be a high ranking R to help Joe Manchin U.S,. Senate re-election in 2018

    –to complete a coup of the R legislators because by switching to R he is forcing them to agree to his legislative agenda; “the Rs will certainly not push back against an R governor” {this is bizarre theory; you can bet the R small govt/cut taxes legislators will still be going toe-to-toe with a governor–even an “R”–who wants $500M of tax increases}

    –he did it because he knows he could not win D primary for governor in 2020; he sees WV turning red, is using Trump as a prop to boost Justice’s own personal political agenda
    [but lots of comments from Rs saying Justice cannot win the R primary for governor in 2020–and regardless of what party he says he belongs to, he needs to pay his $4.6M taxes he still owes WV.]

    Top R officials in WV are saying we accept anyone into the R party. But others are saying Justice now needs to adopt the principles of the R party and cast aside the D ones he has been espousing. Plus, his chief of staff is still the former herd of the D party, and many key people in his administration are highly connected partisan Ds. Will Justice fire them and replace? Will they quit since Justice switched uniforms….?

    This is a big soap opera…

    When major corporations decide to build billion dollar manufacturing plants in the United States, they don’t do so lightly. I highly doubt all this investment would be happening if the people making the decisions thought President Trump would be removed from office.

    All the noise we are exposed to every day in the media is the swamp losing, knowing they are losing, and trying to convince us that they haven’t already lost.

  401. Tina says:

    Excerpt from article:

    The federal probe into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia has expanded to focus on possible financial crimes, including those not necessarily related to the 2016 presidential campaign, CNN reported Thursday.

    CNN reported that some leads unrelated to Russia, but that involved individuals close to President Trump, are being passed along to special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the probe, to encourage cooperation.

    Again, these leaks are illegal. If he is looking at financial stuff, The sp is setting himself up for challenges that he overreached his order. The order states russian interference in the 2016 election.

    -Wes,

    Of course you glossed over the reason why I believed this – my willingness to listen to talk radio.

    YOU are much too smart to listen to talk radio, especially of a conservative nature.

    OR, coinciding with your odd fascination with internet-alerting-self-pleasuring, are just too busy.

    Which one would it be? Can you speak with your hands full?

    -McCain to speak with Schumer, not with McConnell, about “the best time”.

McMaster, sent an official letter giving her unfettered and continuing access to classified information and waiving her “need-to-know” requirement on anything she viewed or received during her tenure, Circa has confirmed.

    The undated and unclassified letter from McMaster was sent in the mail to Rice’s home during the last week of April.

  459. Redmen4ever says:

    In 2006 and ’08, Republicans lost because (1) Bush got us into a terrible war in Iraq, (2) the financial meltdown, and (3) middle-class stagnation. I’m not going to say McCain’s amnesty had nothing to do with it. But discerning its effect is like trying to account for fly farts in a wind tunnel. The sooner mainstream Republicans get it into their heads that they were wrong about Iraq, the sooner we will be able to prevent interlopers like Trump from stealing our cheese.

  460. NYCmike says:

    McMaster, Bannon, etc are all people vying to be in a position of power.

    McMaster has shown tendencies to be in favor of Iran, similar to John Brennan. That, to me, would make him suspect, despite his awesome military thinking.

    General Lee, Stonewall Jackson, etc were great military minds as well. That is not the only detail important to civilian control of the military.

    We can get a certain kind of comprehensive immigration reform with President Trump because the middle class trusts him, because he’s securing the border, because his priority is what’s good for us, not what’s good for the rest of the world, and because he’s a deal maker, he’ll accept some of the priorities of the other side in return for getting his priorities.

    – For the love of God. This is so stupid. McMaster favors Iran? Based on what? Some story you read at Breitbart or Daily Caller?

    McMaster fought an insurgency in Al Anbar in 2006 that was funded and aided by Iranians. But sure, he favors Iran who played a role in killing his troops.

    Breitbart and Daily Caller are attacking McMaster these last few days because Bannon allies, who were not qualified to be on the NSC, have been fired. Bannon is waging his own war for supremacy in Trump’s heart by leaking against a general. Think about that for moment.

    – This Oliver Stone worthy conspiracy. If Trump is forced from office (I highly doubt it), it will be because of the idiotic mistakes he made in his handling of Mike Flynn and his subsequent firing of Comey. And since he fired Comey, it has been an absolute gong show. He has brought a lot of this on himself with is impulsive action over Comey.

  473. PresidentPaul! says:

    If deep state takes out Trump, it just proves Ron Paul was right in pledging to do away with the FBI, CIA and NSA on day one in office.

    Comey had a Columbia Law Professor leak to the NYT on his demand, and admitted it publicly.

    – Plenty of people oppose Trump. No one is disputing that. I oppose him strongly for a wide variety of reasons. But to make the leap from legitimate opposition to “coup” and “deep state”, is really nutty.

    If Trump is forced out (highly, highly unlikely), it will be because he’s done something legally improper. It won’t be because a cabal of military flag officers, the “cosmopolitan” establishment, and the media held secret meetings to set in motion a grand scheme to remove Trump.

    Buying into the idea a group of people are assembling to enact a “silent coup” is Oliver Stone laughable.

    Maybe you can contact the ghost of Jim Garrison and ask him for help in your effort to uncover the plot leaders. His did a really good job of exposing the conspirators in the JFK assassination, right?

  509. NYCmike says:

    ““Members of Congress report to us that the president can’t hold a conversation at even a rudimentary level….”

    -I would love to hear most Republican Congresspeople explain the more conservative position on healthcare at even a rudimentary level….it would show why they are reluctant to get rid of Obamacare….since they don’t understand that government IS THE PROBLEM.

  510. NYCmike says:

    The fact that Trump can’t hold an adult conversation (I don’t believe this, by the way) on policy issues is exactly why Congress should be setting the agenda, and a very conservative one at that.

    This is a perfect storm – the media is so intent on getting Trump, they have less time and space to demonize Republican policies.

  511. Jonesy says:

    534. Settle Down. I know am in your head, but do you really have to make reference’s to the early 60’s now?

    – Both, but mainly his erratic personality.

    In terms of policy, I strongly oppose his protectionist trade policies. This past Spring he imposed tariffs on Canadian soft lumber. Most expected a price rise of about 6-7%. Instead, prices have risen by about 20%. I believe in free trade, not trade wars and tariffs.

    I also object to his and Steve Bannon’s view on the usefulness of international organizations like NATO. It took two tries for Trump to voice his support for NATO, but that came after more than a year of bashing the organization.

    As James Mattis said, “if we didn’t have NATO, he would want to create it because it’s a defense of our values, it’s a defense of democracy”.

    -Again, if more “lifelong liberal Democrat”‘s would take the same actions as Trump has as President, we will all be better off.

    – This is the kind of stuff that happens in every presidency.

    Leaks? Happened to Clinton, GWB, and Obama. We found out about the blue dress long before Starr issued his report. We knew what Fitzgerald was doing long before he issued his report in 2005.

    MSM stories? The press was always on the backs of GWB and Clinton. FoxNews even gave credence to a guy who was pushing a theory that Obama wasn’t born in America. That forced Obama to release his birth certificate just to stop the dumb story.

    Special council? Clinton and GWB both had them. And by the way as Andy McCarthy pointed out at NRO, the impaneling of grand jury means there is a crime being investigated. Also, Republicans tried to use the Starr report to remove Clinton in 1998 and early 1999. Was that coup?

    If you want to complain about the treatment Trump is receiving, go right ahead. Some of it has been unfair. But stop with the coup talk. It’s over the top.

    I’m done.

    – Spare me. Seriously, spare me. I did not say there is no difference. I acknowledged that there is clearly a difference in the proportionality of media attacks, leaks, etc. now that Trump’s president. That said, that attacks like this are occurring is nothing new. What is new is the ratio. Some of that is Trump’s fault and some of that is the press’ fault.

    What I’m done with, though, are lifelong conservatives who have decided to cast their lot with a lifelong liberal Democrat at the expense of actual lifelong conservative politicians. When Trump is viewed as more conservative and more worthy of praise and defense than people who have been involved in conservative issues and Republican politics their whole lives, something is seriously amiss.

    Since when does a guy like Trump deserve this kind of loyalty? What has he done to earn these hysterical Oliver Stone style defenses of deep state and silent coup? Is all that’s needed to now earn undying loyalty is win a race with “R” next to your name, promise a wall, and be attacked by the meanies in the press?

    In many instances, Trump is not receiving fair treatment. In fact he’s received hysterical treatment. But it’s also the case that a lot of lifetime conservatives have now decided that Trump and Trumpism outweigh conservatism for reasons I have yet to determine and it’s sad to watch.

    STOP with the “lifelong liberal Democrat” b*llsh*t.

    The Washington Post revealed this week that several local governments across the U.S. are using a Russian brand of security software that the federal government fears could be leveraged by the foreign country for cyberespionage.

    Earlier this month, the federal government removed Kaspersky Lab, a Moscow-based company that sells anti-virus security software, from its list of approved vendors. Meanwhile, nearly all the local governments interviewed by the Post appeared unaware of the controversy. Upon learning about it, most said that they had no immediate plans to stop using the product.

    The news is merely the latest development in an ongoing debate about whether local governments are doing enough to protect themselves from cyber threats.”

    With Jim Justice’s switch to the GOP, Republicans now control the stste government tri fecta in the following states: ID, UT, AZ, WY, ND, SD, KS, OK, IA, MO, WI, MI, IN, OH, TX, AR, KY, TN, MS, AL, FL, GA, SC, WV, and NH.

    That’s fully half the states with GOP tri fectas.

    By contrast, Dems have tri fectas only in HI, CA, OR, DE, RI, and CT.

    Dem Governors in MT, MN, PA, LA, VA, and NC all face Republican msjorities in noth legidlstive houses while Dem Governors in WA (at least for now), CO, and NY face one GOP-controlled house.

    In contrast, GOP Governors face wholly hostile legislatures in NV, NM, IL, MD, NJ, MA, and VT while GOP Governors in ME and NE face a divided legislature and a nonpartisan single-house legislature dominated by Republicans respectively.

    AK’s Bill Walker faces a GOP Senate and a State House lorded over by one of those coalitions increasingly prominent in state legislatures.

    Republicans definitely have a decided edge in state governments. In many cases, that’s spilled over into federal offices with Dems because of the broadbased GOP state government dominance often having no bench from which to try to regain lost power.

    “Judicial Watch lays out the specifics: “[T]here were more total registered voters than there were adults over the age of 18 living in each of the following eleven (11) counties: Imperial (102%), Lassen (102%), Los Angeles (112%), Monterey (104%), San Diego (138%), San Francisco (114%), San Mateo (111%), Santa Cruz (109%), Solano (111%), Stanislaus (102%), and Yolo (110%).” The letter notes that the percentage in L.A.

    – What, exactly, is my Pence worry? I have said repeatedly over the last couple of months I would much prefer that Pence was president right now. Did you watch his trip through the eastern European countries last week? He looked and acted like a president. I was very impressed.

  696. Tina says:

    I don’t share Tina or lisab’s guaranteed victory, but I also don’t see Trump bowing out of a re-election race.

    the local area i live in is trump country and they are more trump country today than last year

    mostly because most did not think he could win last year

    but now people know that he can win, which brings out voters who won’t vote unless they think their candidates will win

    plus

    a lot of hillary voters, specifically the snowflakes, are still upset over what happened and would not vote for her again

    “Did you watch his trip through the eastern European countries last week? He looked and acted like a president. I was very impressed.”

    -No. Obama looked acted Presidential. Then his policies were implemented, and you realize that the “act” is for show, and is not substance.

    YOU are obviously an easy mark, and if you were watching a VP go thru Europe, have an empty life.

    Why is a Republican Congress not allowing a Republican President to make recess appointments?

    1. They didn’t want Trump to fire Sessions and then make a recess appointment who could fire Muller.

    2. Democrats would have agreed to go into recess and they didn’t. It’s not as simple as the majority party deciding when to fully recess.

    The GOP came very close to flipping two seats in MN last election. In MN-01 and MN-08 the GOP candidate came within 0.6 and 0.7% of taking the districts respectively.

    Right now, the GOP hold 3 out of 8 seats. Just a 1% shift more to the right and Republicans would have had a 5-3 majority in the state. Trump also came within 1.5% of taking the state.

    Republicans also control both the state house and state senate.

    Reports have come out over the past couple months about how the probe is investigating Trump for obstruction of justice, and that Mueller has impaneled grand juries, capable of issuing subpoenas.

    These reports and more have relied on anonymous sources, against whom Rosenstein cautioned could be unreliable. He dubbed these reports, “speculation in the news media.”

    Amazing to me that the Venezuelan military has not moved in mass to finish off this dictator and restore the constitution.

    Even with three years of 700 percent inflation, no food or medical supplies the people sit and do nothing. Of course the people elected these socialist thugs – opened the door for them in fact.

    Now sitting back and doing nothing. cowardly population deserves what they are getting. Enjoy living in another Cuba/North Korea.

    Sean Penn and Danny Glover could not be reached for comment. They wouldn’t have one anyway.

  823. Wes says:

    Honestly, Jonesy, I doubt in three years anyone will remember this. The Senate is blocking Trump from making recess appointments to keep him from firing Sessions and recess appointing a lap dog.

    Trump is getting his nominees through anyway, so why does he need to recess appoint anyone? That tends to be done when the Senate can’t or won’t confirm nominees.

    As far as Tillis, it’s hard to see if Democrats have anyone capable of taking him on. Cooper won the governorship and would be the strongest candidate against Tillis but would have a significantly tougher election in 2020 than against McCrory last year while Dems would be nearly assured to lose the governorship to Dan Forest. After 2010, Marshall is no Senate contender. Wood and Stein round out statewide officeholders, but neither is particularly strong.

    None of the three Dem Congressmen would have a chance. After that’s there’s not much of a bench since Dems are routinely to the left of the state and don’t really have much capacity to appeal to the rural and exurban voters who’ve emerged as the kingmskers in NC politics since 2010.

    It’s certainly possible Tillis can lose, but it would take more than the Senate’s blocking Trump from making recess appointments while Dems would have to have a viable challenger.

    Britain’s youngest sex swap patient reveals why she’s undergoing surgery to switch gender for the third time

    Ria Cooper was born a boy, became the UK’s youngest sex-swap patient at 15 but transitioned back to being a man at the age of 18

    But with her life spiralling out of control as she struggled with her new identity – and the fears of never being accepted as a woman – Ria decided to transition back and live her life instead as a gay man.

    Before having crucial surgery, she ended her treatment and became Brad again soon after her 18th birthday.

    It turned her into the unwitting poster boy for those who claimed teenagers were too young to be given gender reassignment.

    But five years on Ria is more certain than ever that is not the real her – and is making her second attempt at becoming a woman to have the future she always dreamed of.

  851. Wes says:

    For a guy who claimed to have clairvoyant knowledge (you ironically never shared on here) that Matt Bevin would be a great gubernatorial candidate, you honestly have a surprising lack of knowledge of contemporary American poliyics, Mikey:

    http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/04/politics/senate-blocks-trump-recess-appointments/index.html

  852. Wes says:

    This is a direct quote from the article I linked:

    Concerns arose last month that the President might attempt to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions and appoint a replacement of his choosing while the upper chamber was out during the August recess.

  853. Wes says:

    Of course my original question stands:

    Since Trump is getting his nominees through the Senate, why does he need to make recess appointments?

    Maybe if Sessions weren’t a potential victim of Trump’s ego, the Senate wouldn’t be holding pro forma sessions to obviate recess appointments.

  854. Chicon says:

    I’ll ask again…. I see periodic debate on whether Trump is a conservative. Can anyone provide a list of the liberal positions Trump has taken as President? These can be direct actions taken by him, or liberal Congressional bills he’s supported.

  855. Wes says:

    On the subject of Illinois and its fiscal crisis, Mikey acts as if Republicans have a chance of winning majorities in either chamber. In actual fact, Illinois is the second most grotesuely gerrymandered state in the country after Maryland with Republicans packed into a minority of districts with others baconstripped into Chicago to overcome rural and exurban GOP votes. Until those lines are rectified, Dems will have a permanent majority in the IL Legislature.

  856. Wes says:

    As I’ve stated before, Chicon, Trump is neither a liberal nor a conservative but a populist. He will support the agenda of either the Left or the Right as it suits his own agenda. Currently he’s acting as a conservative. That will change if liberalism more fully will advance his populism.

  857. Chicon says:

    Well, there’s someone in the big chair acting like a conservative. I’ll take it, even if the occupant of said chair is a boor (which he is). Especially considering the alternative…..

    But, I’ll keep an open mind if anyone can list some liberal actions he’s taken.

  858. Wes says:

    I can’t agree with that, Chicon.

    In fatc I would venture to say Trump is a Bill Clinton-style political chameleon. He has the ability to shift positions at will while placating his core supporters, thus making him a difficult moving target for his opposition. So long as the economy–the single biggest driving factor for any President’s political fortunes–remains robust, Trump will continue to outmaneuver the opposition.

    Should that change, he won’t be quite so fortunate.

    so who is calling the shots? schumer?

  868. Jonesy says:

    This Mueller thing cannot last for much longer, with unlimited $ and time.

    I think Rosenstein will fall on his sword and fire Mueller for investigating outside of Russia.

    Seibelius took the Heat for Obama on the Obamacare disaster in the same way.

  869. Trump says:

    Man, you folks show a lot of ignorance when talking about mueller.

    Mueller cannot call for “impeachment”, he cannot even say “high crimes and misdemeanors”.

    The only thing he can do is charge trump for any crime affecting a criminal statute on the books. So he will have to cite a law that was supposedly broken.

    That’s the extent of his report.

    Any ” high crimes and misdemeanors” can only be in any impeachment charges filed by the house.

    At least get the basics right.

    “Serious ethical lapses” without a criminal charge is nothing but pure bull cra$.

  870. Trump says:

    For mueller to have any next steps, he will have to indict Trump on a criminal charge.

    Anything else is pure b.s.

  871. Trump says:

    As the constitution clearly lays out, “high crimes and misdemeanors” is the scope of the House.

    Not of the Dept of Justice.

    And there is no criiminal statute for “serious ethical lapses”.

  872. Trump says:

    No law enforcement official, at any level, can execute or prosecute “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

  873. lisab says:

    “Serious ethical lapses” without a criminal charge is nothing but pure bull cra$.
    —————————–

    if he actually charges trump, the dems will almost be forced to call for impeachment

    if he says, “serious issues/irregularities/ethical lapses” etc.

    he doesn’t actually have to prove anything, but still lets the dems in congress go either way depending on the people’s mood

    anything too specific binds the dems hands

    anything too mild, and trump can say he was exonerated

  874. JC says:

    but more importantly he knows that the dems are on the verge of trading the midwest for a few western states, which is not a good trade

    if michigan goes red, the dems are looking at very difficult presidential elections
    ————————-

    You hit the nail on the head. It’s something I’ve been saying since before the election. Trump may have lost some of the upper-class, affluent suburban voters that a traditional GOP candidate like Romney would rake in. But the tradeoff was massive support among blue collar, white working class voters. This was a double whammy for dems – this group used to be part of the core democratic constituency, so every vote was essentially a net loss of two.

    There’s also a heck of a lot more working-class blue collar voters than upper-class affluent voters.

  875. lisab says:

    he cannot say, “we found nothing”

    he would never get invited to the good parties again

    my money is on “very serious lapses”

    also, unlike pennsylvania, michigan no longer has a huge dem controlled city to bail out dem candidates. detroit is on its way to 500,000 people.

  877. Trump says:

    And the claim of “upper-class, affluent suburban voters” abandoning Trump is a myth.

    Trump won the suburbs by 4 points, compared to Romney wining by 2 points in 2012.

    So he actually doubled romney’s margin in this sub-group.

  878. JC says:

    PA: GOP controls 13 of 18 US house seats, 1 US senate seat, and both chambers of the state legislature.

    MI: GOP holds 9 of 14 house seats, and controls both state chambers, and the governorship.

    WI: GOP holds 5 of 8 house seats, 1 senate seat, both state chambers, and the governorship.

    IA: GOP holds 3 of 4 seats, both senate seats, both state chambers, and the governorship.

    OH: GOP holds 12 of 16 house seats, 1 senate seat, both state chambers, and the governorship.

    MN: GOP holds 3 of 8 house seats (but came within less than 1% of taking two more in 2016), and both state chambers.

    In the past few elections there has been a huge shift to the right in these rust-belt states. What’s really important though is the GOP’s total domination in the state’s legislatures. Even in MN, the most dem-leaning of the bunch, Republicans still have control of both state chambers.

    Signs of Cooperation on Cleaning up the Voter Rolls

    Just a few excerpts:

    “To be sure, they’ll still be carping about how the GOP is trying to “disenfranchise minority voters” and what have you, but this new report from NBC News takes the bold step of noting that even Democrats around the country are ready to admit that the voter rolls are a hot mess which leave the door open for trouble every election season.”

    and:

    “The rolls showed 1.8 million dead voters still on the books, while 2.75 million people had registrations in more than one state.”

    This all ties into the Judicial Watch findings in CA where 11 counties are off in their voter registration vs the greater numbers actually voting.

  889. Tina says:

    In fact, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s letter appointing special counsel Robert Mueller does not give Mueller broad, far-reaching powers in this investigation. He is only authorized to investigate matters that involved any potential links to and coordination between two entities — the Trump campaign and the Russian government. People are wrongly pointing to, and taking out of context, the phrase “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation” to characterize special counsel’s authority as broad.

    I have veen saying the same, it is written in Rosensteins order. Rosenstein confirmed this on fox.

  890. Bitterlaw says:

    Phillies catcher, Darren “Dutch” Daulton, has died at 55 from a brain tumor. He was a leader of the 1993 Phillies that went to the World Series. (Damn you, Joe Carter).

    RIP, Dutch.

    Schilling was the ace pitcher. Won a ring in 2001 with Dbacks

  895. Bitterlaw says:

    I think that Schilling also won with the Red Sox. I will have to look ok it up. Schilling is a huge Trump supporter.

  896. Bitterlaw says:

    2 rings with the Sawks. I hate Boston teams but I really respect Curt Schilling. With 3 rings, I would put him in the Hall of Fame. With he exception of 1993, he played for some bad Phillies teams. Always an Ace.

  897. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    Thank You.

    I asked if McConnell stated that was the reason for keeping the Senate “open”.

    Your link has a quote from Schumer, and CNN used the words “concern”.

    So, McConnell did NOT state that was the reason, and also confirmed 60 or so people right before they went home.

    Looks like Mitch used his leverage to get some things done.

    And NEVER made that statement about Sessions and Trump.

  898. NYCmike says:

    Wes translation: “On the subject of Illinois and its fiscal crisis, Mikey acts as if Republicans have a chance of winning majorities in either chamber.”

  899. NYCmike says:

    “Chameleon or not Wes, his Conservative picks to the courts will leave a legacy for a generation, no matter how he governs.”

    -Like Robbie, Wes could not name one thing that Trump has done that is what a “liberal Democrat” would have done.

    I have said for over a year, Trump is no “liberal Democrat”, no conservative, and no Republican. I have had fights with jason, scooter, Bitterlaw, etc over that very topic.

    I have no recollection of Wes having a disagreement at all, with any of them, over that very issue.

    Does anyone?

    John Kruk was from Keyser, WV.

    I enjoyed watching him play with the Phillies.

    One story was that when during the off season he was relaxing in his hot tub on his back deck in the hills of WV I big deer wondered onto his property.

    He jumped (nekid) out of his hot tub and ran and got his hunting rifle and shot the deer from his deck. Then called a buddy to come dress out the deer while he soaked in the tub.

    John Kruk was a good ol’ boy.

    An anecdotal story about the economy, here in the 5 boros: A friend of mine has been doing street fairs, and these small markets in and around the city. Every one he has been to has been busy, traffic-wise, but the actual sales have been slow, across the board. He has spoken to the other vendors, and all of them has said business is off.

    Trump = NOT a Republican, conservative, “liberal Democrat” or populist.

    He is a selfish, egotistical buffoon (which I do not consider a bad thing, compared to people like Bill and Hillary Clinton, Obama, JEB!2016) who happens to want to win more than most Republicans, so he crafted a campaign to do so.

    And he is now governing mostly as he campaigned.

    As the constitution clearly lays out, “high crimes and misdemeanors” is the scope of the House.
    Not of the Dept of Justice.
    And there is no criiminal statute for “serious ethical lapses”.

    – What were the high crimes and misdemeanors over which the House impeached Andrew Johnson? Essentially, he was impeached over a dispute about whether he should be allowed to fire his own Secretary of War, Edward Stanton.

    The House and the Senate, however unwise, can impeach and remove a president over anything they want. It’s a political process conducted a political body.

  954. Wes says:

    Hey, Il Mikey, last I checked, Brooks and Strange and Moore are facing off in a PRIMARY. I know you’re a bit slow on the uptake despite your unsupported claims of amazing clairvoyance in the Bevin-Conway race, but I’ll explain what a PRIMARY IS:

    A primary is an election in which all members eligible to participate in the selection process for a party’s nominee have a chance to do so.

    That’s in contrast to the convention you and Mike Lee advocated as a means to deny Bob Bennett a fourth term, in which a select group of party activists bypasses the voters and selects nominees in a way reminiscent of how Mussolini stacked the government in his favor in the 1920s.

    Mitch McConnell supports a personal favorite candidate in this race and is attempting to convince voters to back Strange. He has that right. The voters also have a right to support or oppose McConnell’s preferred candidate–in direct contrast to the convention system of selection favored by you, Mike Lee, and Ken Cuccinelli.

  955. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    People like MD and Author used to say I was “unhinged”.

  960. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    Now, look at Wes.

    This is typical of someone who is getting “riled up”, and I will give you some examples of why I say that:

    “Hey, Il Mikey,” – when Wes agrees with me, he calls me NYCmike, or Mike. When he disagrees, he goes with the “Il Mikey” moniker. He CLEARLY does not like being wrong, and he knows he makes no sense with this “fascist” play.

    “despite your unsupported claims of amazing clairvoyance in the Bevin-Conway race” – In this case here, he has NOT mentioned the reason I gave for knowing Bevin would be good, because it was exactly true, on both counts. 1) I heard him on talk radio 2) Wes would never “lower” himself to listen to talk radio, to his own detriment, of course.

    One last point: the sheer length of his posts is a dead give away, that he is riled up.

    Contrast his avalanche of an explanation, which does NOT say anything I disagree with, with my succinct takedown of your silly “lifelong Domocrat” charge with 2 simple links to reports which give the information you got wrong.

    There was no comparison of Reagan with Trump. That is a ludicrous comparison, as they are nothing alike in their political thinking.

    BUT, seeing as how you continue to define someone as a “lifelong Democrat” as anyone who has been a Democrat at any time in their life, well then, Reagan would fall under that category, as you pointed out.

    In what could be a significant blow to ISIS’ defense of Deir Ezzor Province, the Syrian Army has captured the town of al-Sukhna, the last ISIS-held town in the Homs Province, which lies along a major highway leading directly into the ISIS-held east.

    At the peak of ISIS’ territory gains in Syria, they were pushing into Homs Province fairly aggressively, and even after the fall of Palmyra they fought hard to keep that territory to try to counter any major offensives coming from Syria’s main government-held territories around Damascus.

    Poor Al Gore, Paramount Studies is responsible for the failure of his new film:

    Al Gore Gets Ripped Off Again
    by D.R. Tucker August 7, 2017

    “He should have demanded a recount.

    A botched strategy by Paramount Pictures effectively sabotaged the nationwide release of the Al Gore documentary An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, which finished in 15th place in US theatres this weekend. This was not supposed to happen–and it would not have happened if Paramount had stuck with its original release plan.

    Back in June, Paramount abandoned plans to give An Inconvenient Sequel a wide release on July 28, choosing instead to release the film in only four screens in New York and Los Angeles on July 28 and only 180 screens nationwide a week later. Apparently, Paramount executives thought it was wiser to copy the “platform” release strategy of 2006’s An Inconvenient Truth. However, considering the fact that this is arguably the first major anti-Trump documentary to hit theatres–and considering the public outrage over Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement–Paramount should have stuck to its original plan; in fact, Paramount could have seized upon anti-Trump sentiment by giving An Inconvenient Sequel the same high-profile national rollout that Lionsgate gave Fahrenheit 9/11 in 2004, a rollout that resulted in that iconic film opening at #1 at the US box office, a rarity for a documentary.”

  1058. NYCmike says:

    Cutting regulations, repealing EO’s, picking Supreme Court Justices…..lovin’ it P.O.!

    “The congressional map has a record-setting bias against democrats” – fivethirtyeight.

    That’s the future you are looking at, PO shi$. It’s not just me saying it,

  1069. Trump says:

    Even if you won every place that Hillary won and that trump won close, you will still lose the house. And still lose 5 senate seats. In 2018.

    That’s what you shill Sikver is predicting.

    That’s your reality, PO shi$.

  1070. Proud Obamacon says:

    Moron, I know the map is against us. I’ve posted that many times and I’ve never predicted that we would win the House or the Senate so you can STFU about that.

    But we are going after governorships and state legislatures. Yall did a good job gerrymandering after 2010. We plan to do the same after 2020. Enjoy….

  1071. Trump says:

    Ha ha ha, PO shi$. You talk big, for a serial loser.

    Good strategy, PO sh$t.

    What color is the sky?

  1073. Trump says:

    6 states with dem control.

    Out of 50.

    And no leader, no money, no candidates.

    Fairies and unicorn farts power you., PO sh$t.

  1074. Trump says:

    And the stupidity to blow $50 m on an unenviable house race.

    Include no message.

    Gee, why do you keep losing, PO shi$?

  1075. Trump says:

    And how does any gerrymandering in 2020 help you in 2018, PO sh$t?

    With thinking like this, no wonder you keep losing, moron.

  1076. Trump says:

    Much of your success, if you call it that, over the last 5-6 years was enabled by the criminal syndicate of Obama and Clinton.

    See how your money has dried up when the criminals are no longer running things.

  1077. Trump says:

    Po shi$,

    Another piece of current event for you, moron.

    1.1 million fewer Americans on food stamps.

  1078. lisab says:

    And still lose 5 senate seats. In 2018.
    ——————————————-

    that would cause a civil war the dem party

    you would start seeing the old guard thrown out if they lose 5 senate seats. that would be a disaster.

    three seats max is what they can lose and that is about as bad as it can get and not have a war in the part

    two seat loss or better is the hop.

  1079. lisab says:

    But we are going after governorships and state legislatures.
    —————————

    that is probably against you too …

    the dems are losing the suburbs

  1080. lisab says:

    the thing is as local suburban governments have become more red, it gets more and more difficult to run as a dem in those towns. they get less and less support from the state party as the gop gets more and more.

    unfortunately obama lost a lot of political positions for dem politicians that likely won’t be coming back soon.

  1081. PresidentPaul! says:

    Perjury (but she was probably granted immunity in some phony fbi investigation that a common man would never get)

    Rep. Trey Gowdy: So you use official email to conduct official business?

    AG Loretta Lynch: Yes sir. I do.

    That was a complete lie under oath.

    Kasich, you must be kidding me. May as well go with Hillary. In a general he may win Ohio as the hometown boy, but you could kiss away PA,MI,WI,IA,NC and FL….maybe even TX for that matter. What a joke.

  1084. PresidentPaul! says:

    Kasich must be gaining popularity with his new pledge to preserve Obamacare in addition to comprehensive immigration reform again.

  1085. NYCmike says:

    What does HHR say about a Trump/Kasich primary fight?

    Trump has taken actions as President – we are still waiting for the list of “liberal Democrat” policies he has pushed.

    Would HHR vote out Trump, in favor of Kasich, even if “the lifelong Democrat” continues picking good judges, repealing regulations and EO’s, and pushing more conservative, law-oriented legislation?

  1086. Trump says:

    John Kasich is the candidate of Dems, nevertrumpers, and other assorted .loons.

    “John Kssich will be the republican nominee for president” – huff post, April 7, 2016

    “Moderate John Kasich is actually terrifying” – Rolling Stones, mar 18, 2017

    NY Times endorses Clinton and Kasich – Jan 31, 2016

  1087. Trump says:

    Kasich remains relevant to the loons only because he is so irrelevant that nobody bothers to engage and attack him.

    Loons attract loons.

    In reality, Kasich got 5 additional delegates after this date.

  1090. Tina says:

    Imstill do not get the kasich bashing.

    He will not run in 2020.

  1091. Trump says:

    Actually, Kasich did get about 20 delegates after April 6.

    Out of about 900.

  1092. Trump says:

    He will run in 2020 or 2024.

    He is that stupid.

  1094. Trump says:

    Kasich is deluded enough to think he is the establishment alternative to trump.

    Remember his post-election speech that he had to cancel.

  1095. Tina says:

    No muh russian stories? Ussualky, jebot has some new rubbish.

  1096. Trump says:

    As I said, Kasich becomes relevant because he is so irrelevant.

    The only noteworthy news about 2016 election and Kasich is that he opposed Trump both at the GOP convention and through the general election campaign.

    Trump won his state by higher margins than Bush, Clinton and Obama across six election.

    That’s how much relevance Kasich has.

    Kasich instead of Trump? Absolutely. However, that would require me to vote for a challenger over an incumbent in a primary and I will never do that. I could get lucky and Trump could seek the Democrat nomination in 2020.

  1103. NYCmike says:

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/army-refuses-to-scrub-confederate-names-from-brooklyn-base/article/2630844

    -I am glad that the army base in my neighborhood is hanging tough. I have actually heard a conversation between soldiers, of mixed races, about this issue, and the soldiers who happened to be black were the ones loudest in opposition. This happened at the diner which is a block away from the entrance to the base.

    It is ridiculous to wash away history, and does a disservice to those who were harmed in the past.

  1104. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    You really are resistant to new information, aren’t you?

  1105. NYCmike says:

    ““I’d consider nominating Merrick Garland to Supreme Court””

    -This statement by itself should make a “Republican” like Bitterlaw tell Kasich to GFH.

    -“Deadender” Sharron Angle to primary Heller……oops, Tarkanian will be the challenger…..is this allowed?

  1109. Jonesy says:

    Kasich is a sitting Governor in a Swing State that does not support his Party’s nominee.

    Trump still wins state close to double digits.

    That is why Kasich is finished

  1110. lisab says:

    “Would HHR vote out Trump, in favor of Kasich,”

    oh i think hhr would. i doubt it would be close.

    i also doubt the nh poll.

    although kasich would play well there in the general, he was my choice on the gop side, he completely flops on the libertarian side.

    trump will take a huge chunk of gop voters in any primary and almost all of the libertarian vote.

    kasich will take all of the bush voters in nh and almost none of the libertarians.

  1111. Robbie says:

    The Republican battle cry in 2018 and 2020: “But Gorsuch!”

  1112. Robbie says:

    Kasich is not a viable challenger to Trump in 2020.

    His name, however, serves as a placeholder for discontent among Republicans about Trump’s performance so far.

  1113. Robbie says:

    Big day for the deadenders! Perennial loser Danny Tarkanian has announced (on Fox ‘n Firends of course) a primary challenge to Dean Heller. Pair up Tarkanian with Kelli Ward in AZ and Republican primary voters can finally send a message that winning in the general is overrated.

  1114. Robbie says:

    Tina says:

    No muh russian stories? Ussualky, jebot has some new rubbish.

    – It’s early. Just wait. I’m sure something will pop before the week’s over.

  1115. Robbie says:

    Trump’s standing the three polling averages.

    538 – 36.6%
    Huffpollster – 37.4%
    RCP – 37.8%

  1116. lisab says:

    Kasich is deluded enough to think he is the establishment alternative to trump.
    —————————————-

    he normally would be correct, however in 2020 the establishment knows they need trump to win.

    there will be 22 republicans up for reelection in the senate during a presidential year

    about 10 seats will be competitive with most of them currently republican.

    it is amazing how much support trump will get when the senators know their job is on the line.

  1117. Jonesy says:

    1169. All Crap.

    1. 538 Blew 2016 Election and Ga-6
    2. HuffP had Hillary with 99% of winning
    3. RCP predicted Hillary Electoral College win with their awful combined state polling.

    You are Deaedend fool, Rodham.

  1118. Tina says:

    I read that trumps approval rate exceeds kasich in ohio.

    This was a few weeks ago.

  1119. Tina says:

    Would HHR vote out Trump, in favor of Kasich,”

    Many would vote for hillary too..

  1120. Jonesy says:

    Deadender Robbie calls others Deadenders?

    Are they serving Beer at the Brokered Convention? I hear Kasich is the Keynote.

  1121. lisab says:

    those polls would be a lot more concerning for trump if they did not almost exactly match his fav/unfav up until 11/1/2016

  1122. Jonesy says:

    Robbie is upset that thru a Good Economy, solid Judicial picks, and the breaking of much red tape regulations, he is on his way to second term.

    1175. 538 is already predicting the GOP will hold the house and Senate in 2018 due to many factors.

    If true, why do the polls even matter?

    Because of RINO Spineless Jellyfish like Robbie and the Deadender bunch

  1125. lisab says:

    one of the reasons congree is not following trump right now is that most know 2018 highly favors the republicans anyway. it would be different if the dems had leadership and/or money and/or a coherent message but they don’t yet

    notice the house is doing what trump wants for the most part because some house seats are competitive and the dems just happen to be on the defense in the senate in 2018

    the dem senate candidates in purple and red states will almost need to self fund because the dnc is not raising money from their core constituentcies, billionaires, blacks, and bohemians

    He basically said the rumours are untrue.

    I do not see how he can look at trumps financial information based on that order.

  1134. lisab says:

    I do not see how he can look at trumps financial information based on that order.
    ———————–

    the order is actually rather vague. he can probably look at trump’s third grade report card if he wants to

    however, he cannot say there was nothing — that would end mueller — because it would basically make trump vindicated

    that is why he moved the grand jury to dc, they would charge trump for breathing in dc

    but … if they charge trump with something too over the top, the dems will also lose.

    it has to be something that will cause chaos, but not actually make the dems look like witch hunters

    lisa: we found evidence of election tampering …

    mueller: NO … too strong

    lisa: trump knowingly colluded with russian agen …

    mueller: NO … TOO strong

    lisa: trump’s son one was in a bar and drank some white russians and hit on a russian model

    mueller: good … i like that … maybe tone down the drinking part

  1137. Jonesy says:

    actually they allowed that

    some deal was made between the leaders to allow the judges through

  1141. lisab says:

    the wording is

    “any matter that arose or may arise directly from the investigation”

    all they have to do is say, “while we were investigating trump’s business dealings kept coming up”

    which makes sense given that he has real estate all over

    those polls would be a lot more concerning for trump if they did not almost exactly match his fav/unfav up until 11/1/2016

    – We’re not in an election contest anymore. Trump’s low approval didn’t doom him then because he was running against an opponent who was equally as unpopular and far better known to the country. It’s a fact I missed.

    Also, the concept of Trump presidency was an unknown then. No one knew what it would look like, but were willing to give him a chance based on his career as a businessman. People knew who Clinton was and clearly didn’t want her after 25 years of her in the national spotlight.

    Now, we are seeing what a Trump presidency is and he no longer has an single, identifiable opponent against whom he can play himself off. If he makes it to a re-election, his numbers will rise simply because he has an alternative for the base and the party to consider.

  1154. Robbie says:

    – Are you blind to reality?

    Trump’s approval is historically low, not because of policy, but because of his own actions.

    After six months, Trump has proven to be erratic, impulsive, and untruthful. That’s what the polling says.

    People aren’t making a judgment on his policies because his personal actions are preventing people from getting to that point.

    Trump’s own self is causing the country to turn away from him.

    We all know somewhere NYCMike is cheering over this:

    Danny Tarkanian–perennial gadfly with no accomplishments politically except the accident of a prominent last name and previous loser to both Sharron Angle and Jacky Rosen–has officially launched a primary bid against the most endangered Senate Republican of 2018, Dean Heller.

    Apparently Tarkanian–like another NYCMike buddy, Aaron Day–is so determined to see Jacky Rosen become Senator he’s decided to become this cycle’s Bill Janklow (1986; look it up) and force a vulnerable sitting Senator with a strong challenger gearing up to face him to have an even harder road to reelection, thus helping the Dems win the seat.

    yay

  1181. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    And that is exactly the point about Trump that you don’t seem to get…..HE IS NOT UP FOR RE-ELECTION IN 2018! Approval ratings mean nothing to him.

    And if you are worried about his carry-over to Congress, try looking at Congress and the job they have done before blaming anyone else.

    McCain and Murk to begin with.

  1182. NYCmike says:

    Is that what it’s called when a person believes that if the law allows, then a person can run against another in a primary or a general election?

    Ok. Got it.

    Here are some pretty damning statements by Buchanan.

    Worst case, they could be considered anti-semitic.
    Best case, they could be considered a, like his campaign slogan, an “America First” outlook.

    I don’t agree with him on a lot of his beliefs toward the Middle East.

    Then again, those beliefs make people like Wes call me a “chickenhawk”, so now I see who Wes agrees with.

    -Actually, you have done just about as much as I have: commented on a blog.

    I am fine with Heller for the most part. I did not like Tark’s dad, I don’t particularly care about the son either way.

  1201. NYCmike says:

    Again, why can’t these individuals just go about their business and ignore Trump? Placate him publicly, and just do your own thing privately?

    Of course, the outcome should be conservative-oriented legislation……that seems to be the main problem.

  1202. Tina says:

    Part of the reason I think that the storyline is that we haven’t done much is because, in part, the president and others have set these early timelines about things need to be done by a certain point,” said McConnell, a Republican and the state’s senior senator.

    This is dumb. Rs in congress made the statement that obumblercare woukd be repealed on day 1.

    Some rs.

    I am assuming that they quoted mitchie correctly

    Casinos like Heller, reason he won in 2012. If he Survive a Obama ticket year, he will win in 18

  1205. Wes says:

    Conservative-oriented legislation, huh? As proposed by Michael Bennet, Chris Coons, Claire McCaskill, Joe Donnelly, and Haggie Hassan, I presume, Mike?

  1206. Wes says:

    I’m being somewhat hyperbolic in my statements to needle Mike, Jonesy. Regardless, this isn’t a good development. Heller needs to train his warchest on the general election. Instead, Tark is making him unload a big chunk of it in the primary.

  1207. Tina says:

    Heller should win. I see nombasis for primarying him

  1208. PresidentPaul! says:

    idk why but McConnell never really bother me that much or well anymore than the average republican in the senate.

    Jonesy,

    I just saw that thing about Trump tweets along with what No Korea is doing……as if they are related.

    I just listened to Bubba Clinton’s speech from the ’90’s, lauding himself and the No Korean agreement which would keep them from getting nukes.

    Then, there was 8 years of Dubya, NOTHING DONE.

    Then, there was 8 years of Obama, NOTHING DONE.

    I often wonder why Reagan did not try harder to do something about No Korea.

    he now has the power of the incumbency

    and

    the people who were afraid he would not do things like appoint gorsuch now know that he will

    trump has a decided advantage — thus far — over the probable dem candidates.

    however, if they can nominate someone who can play to the middle class like a bill clinton, the dems can certainly win

    but bernie, warren, schumer, etc. won’t be able to do that

    My God, what a punk

    – You’re such a moron.

    look at it this way robbie
    you have been relentlessly bashing trump for a year and a half
    NONE of the people that supported trump have gone against him
    SOME of the people who were against him now are ok with him
    ALL of the people who wanted him over Hillary would still vote for him over a democrat
    he would do BETTER today against Hillary than he did on November 8th

    – Apparently, you can’t read a poll. Trump is losing support among his base supporters right now. That’s why his approval rating has gone from 40% to the mid 30’s now.

    -Robbie,
    I guess Trump had some time in between tweets.

    – The problem is he had time to tweet idiotic crap about polls. His twitter behavior is moronic, but you’ll defend his crap no matter what.

    so then robbie
    are you saying that trump will not get the nomination in 2020
    or
    that he will win the nomination but lose in a landslide like in 2016?

    – No. Sadly, I believe he’ll be the nominee again.

  1257. NYCmike says:

    Congressional Republicans should present conservative-oriented legislation so that their voters will see what they stand for…..let the Democrats vote against lower corporate tax, streamlined tax code, RAISE ACT, etc.

    Trump has no saying on what legislation moves forward.

  1258. Robbie says:

    If the “agenda driven opinion polls” showed Trump at or above 50%, the HHR comment section would be in love with them.

  1259. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1312. “If Democrats take control in 2018, they’ll impeach him. Is that what you want?”

    Yes, and the Democrats began their road to control of Congress in 2017 with their special election victories. Oh wait — they lost them all. And their not even contesting Utah, except to support the “moderate” Republican (who make his money building gun shooting ranges).

    Election results matter, not skewed polls.

    – Trump’s party controls the Congress. He leads the party. It’s his job to provide direction and make the case for legislation the party wants. The idea the two can be separated is just not realistic.

    1321. “If the “agenda driven opinion polls” showed Trump at or above 50%, the HHR comment section would be in love with them.”

    Probably so, but you go out of you way to find the poll with the lowest Trump numbers, and posting it. When Trump went below 40% in Rasmussen, you actually posted it — despite your reservations about that poll’s methodology.

  1265. Tina says:

    The party registrations cited by schweikart are net changes.

    Yes, and the Democrats began their road to control of Congress in 2017 with their special election victories. Oh wait — they lost them all.

    – In 2005 and 2006, Republicans won all of the special elections and then got pasted in the 2006 midterms.

    In 2009 and 2010, Democrats won all of the special elections and then got pasted in the 2010 midterms.

  1269. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1330. “– And last winter you kept posting Rasmussen polls because they had the highest numbers for Trump.”

    Last winter Rasmussen was also one of the most accurate polls in predicting the actual outcome of the election.

    Should note the special elections this year had millions of dollars spent in them, and in a way they become referendums on Trump. The Republicans still won them.

    At this point, cannot predict 2018 — it is by no means a guaranteed Democratic win. The Democrats are too divided, and have poor leadership. The popularity of Trump and Pence is higher in the polls than Pelosi and Schumer.

  1270. Jonesy says:

    Time to up the dosage, Robbie Rodham

  1273. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    1331. “– And you keep supporting deadender candidates.”

    I would define as deadender the current Democratic leadership. Robbie, being anti-Trump is not enough — the Democrats need a leader who is popular enough to be an alternative to Trump. Who is it? Pelosi? Schumer? Bernie? Any other of their septuagenarians come to mind? Trump may win by default.

    The left would get on board. This would be their big chance to turn the US into California.

    I can see it. Of course he would mask his ultra liberalism to a certain extent just enough to get elected and the MSM would help him do it.

    Again, I can easily see it.

  1285. NYCmike says:

    “– And you keep supporting deadender candidates.”

    No appeal to dem identity blocks – women, blacks, Hispanics.

    Forget white working class.

  1288. NYCmike says:

    But Trump’s approval ratings were low on election day last year, and Republicans were elected all up and down the ballot.

  1314. Wes says:

    SDC. Robbie actually has a point with this because Trump’s the incumbent President now.

    That said, Dems aren’t exactly coming across as a reasonable alternative to the GOP. Hence why I predict a 1970-style election next year rather than a 1994 or 2010.

  1315. NYCmike says:

    Robbie keeps writing comments, and then a poster refutes his statement with actual fact.

    – Republicans aren’t nearly as over extended as Democrats were in 2010 so that should hold down the losses even if Trump’s at 35%.

    That said, Republicans didn’t always come across as a reasonable alternative in 2010. The Tea Party was at its height of power and mainline Republicans who would have won were being defeated in primaries by absolute clowns.

    Midterms are usually a rejection, in some shape or form, to the party in the White House so Democrats don’t have to go too far past simply being anti-Trump.

  1320. lisab says:

    robbie,

    soooooooo what is your prediction for 2020?

    and for 2018 just for fun

  1321. Tina says:

    Ed Rollins: I thought it was pretty outrageous. He better look in the mirror.. As I said before was fairly good defensive person stopping things. He certainly isn’t very good at offense… It’s time for change. There are several

    Tired and inept.

  1322. Wes says:

    Actually, Robbie, in the House, the GOP did come across as reasonable. Most of the loons lost the House primaries, and the Republicans who won looked like reasonable people. Kristi Noem and Mick Mulvaney come to mind.

    Also, 2010 was a different animal because Republicans won primarily recaptuting lost ground in areas friendly to them. This year, Dems, especially in the Senate, have to hold their own Trump-friendly areas and pick up seats in those same areas. That’s a tough goal to accomplish unless we get a 1929-style stock market crash creating an extended recession or depression.

    In 2010, the economy was also not recovering, and Dems were perceived as callous to the economic downturn while pushing Obama’s economic agenda.

    There are a multitude of factors that differentiate the current political climate from that of eight years ago.

  1323. Wes says:

    Dems were also so anti-Trump they called for fighting him in the streets, Robbie. At least one Democrat took that advice to heart.

    Republicans never called for such idiocy.

    Dems did act as they’re acting noe in 2002. It cost them six House seats, two Senate seats, a majority in state legislatures, and shattered their hopes of reclaiming a majority of Governors.

    If they eish to repeat the past, let them.

  1324. Wes says:

    Ed Rollins–who actively worked to defeat two Republican Senators in 1984 while running Reagan’s reelection campaign and lost all three races he managed in 1994 of all years–isn’t exactly my personal pick for the most knowledgeable person about politics, Tina.

  1325. Wes says:

    McConnell looks tired to Rollins?

    Hm.

    McConnell bounced back from a less-than-stellar win in 2008 to trounce a much-touted Dem opponent by 15 points in 2014.

    Oh, yes, Ed. Incredibly tired.

    🙄

  1326. Jonesy says:

    For it to be 1970 Wes, the GOP congress needs to pass something.

    We know the senate is a lock, and Trump will pack the courts, but the house is iffy

    soooooooo what is your prediction for 2020?

    and for 2018 just for fun

    – I’m not about to make a firm prediction for either race other than to say, if Trump’s approval rating is below 40%, it will be bad for Republicans at all levels.

    Given that we all agreed in 2010 and 2014 that presidential approval ratings were the key factor in determining how the president’s party would do, I’m not sure why this is suddenly so controversial.

  1329. Robbie says:

    Ed Rollins helped Ross Perot in 1992 and ran Governor Corncob’s campaign (Mike Huckabee) in 2008.

    Who cares what he thinks. There’s a reason he’s on Fox Business (not even FoxNews) and not working on campaigns.

    well “bad” is relative. if trump wins by the same margin that he had in 2020 as he had in 2016, you could say, “well he would have won by even more if he had a higher approval”

    but that is always true.

    sooooooo … put a number on your predictions

    if trump is about 40% approval on election day

    how many senate seats will the gop win or lose in 2018

    here is the thing, and i say this as a socialist

    which of the possible dem candidates that is mentioned as likely challengers in 2020, other than biden, is seen as more friendly to the middle class than mondale?

    “The moron is a shill for the DNC, which explains his behavior.”

    well yes, i mentioned that several times

    which is why i don’t get why you think he loves jeb

    he only loves jeb because he knows jeb would have lost, and on the off chance he would have won, his policies would have been relatively palatable to dems

    Exactly

  1346. Bitterlaw says:

  1347. lisab says:

    Do you honestly believe that if the Democrats somehow took control of the Senate that Trump would not just appoint liberals
    ————————–

    actually i don’t

    i think he is socially fairly liberal, but i do think he is legitimately fiscally conservative, at least as far as government regulation and high taxes are concerned.

    i think most, of course not all, but most parents want their children to grow up to embody the characteristics they themselves value even if they don’t have those characteristics themselves.

    trump has some pretty well educated, well spoken, socially liberal, yet business oriented children.

    i think if you want to know what trump really thinks, look at ivanka, by all accounts his favorite.

    it is possible he is just a complete populist, but that would not explain his children.

    also, i also believe him when he talks about his brother.

  1348. lisab says:

    my hypothesis also explains his position on immigration and fair trade as well.

    unlike other billionaires, like gates or buffet, trump does not benefit at all by outsourcing jobs or from driving down wages in the usa. i think he could not care less if you are jewish, catholic, protestant, black, hispanic, asian or white.

    i think he only sees green — which of course has its own problems, but i very much doubt he wants judges that will impose more judicial laws on businesses.

  1349. Bitterlaw says:

    Interesting, lisab. To me, Trump’s contributions to Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer reveal who he really is and what he really believes.

  1350. lisab says:

    i think his contributions were just a means to an end, more money.

    if he really believed in schumer or hillary he would not abandon them. some say he is a populist, but i don’t think that quite fits the data. close, but not quite.

    he did not bring up his children without morals. but he did bring them up to chase profit without regard for race, gender, religion or ethnicity.

    in a way he believes in a weird kind of equality. everyone can make him money.

  1351. lisab says:

    as a teacher, i can usually say show me the child and i will tell you about the parent. even most “bad” children are simply doing what they learned from their parents — except for children who are mentally ill.

    if only ivanka was well spoken and well mannered etc., i would more readily believe he is a terrible person to the core.

    but all of his adult children say he would drop everything if they needed him, even during business meetings he would take their calls. his boys say he took them to construction sites and they drove tractors around — as opposed to coaching little league. they all said he told them all never to drink or do drugs because of his brother’s death. only ivanka is openly religious, so i don’t think djt is religious. they all are highly abitious, so i think he gave them that.

    if i had to guess he himself wishes he was like don jr. or eric. or ivanka.

  1352. lisab says:

    which btw, does not mean that he is not a boorish womanizer.

    he can still be a pig himself.

    but i don’t think he wanted that for his children. both can be true.

  1353. Jonesy says:

    Bitter, so you say Trump would pick liberal Judges?

    What about your heroes Bush 1 and 2? Souter, Harriet Myers, Obamacare Roberts?

  1354. Jonesy says:

    1417. Bush’s voted for Hillary

  1355. Tina says:

    Tarmacgate, what a web. Now reaches feinsteinstein.

  1356. Trump says:

    The moron lawyer believes what he wants to believe, facts not withstanding.

    Simple question: what does Trump contributing to Romney indicate?

  1357. Trump says:

    Over his 29 year political donations history, Trump has given $961k to Republicans and $545k to democrats.

    Before 2012, his contributions were spread $500k R and $590k D. Since 2012, he has given $464k R and $3500 D.

    Doesn’t fit the lifelong democrat narrative.

  1358. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    lisab did a wonderful job, and “Trump” also included some good nuggets.

    Trump is an equal opportunity type: If you make him money, you are AWESOME. If you piss him off, you are Rosie O’Donnell.

    I don’t know why you need to put him in the “liberal” or conservative box. HE IS NEITHER.

  1359. Trump says:

    Because he has a narrative, fact free, in his mind.

    And his is a closed mind that does not accept facts.

    He defines terms to make himself feel better.

  1360. NYCmike says:

    Prosecuting Lawyer final statement: “To me, Trump’s contributions to Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer reveal who he really is and what he really believes.”

    Defendant Lawyer final statement: “Simple question: what does Trump contributing to Romney indicate?”

    Jury: Not Guilty, and Prosecuting lawyer should pay ALL legal fees for bringing this ridiculous case to court and wasting all of our time, since last summer.

  1361. Trump says:

    The most accurate description of Trump political contributions is that he is an equal opportunity influence buyer.

  1362. NYCmike says:

    “he is an equal opportunity influence buyer.”

    -Agreed, since last summer, or before.

  1363. Robbie says:

    The FBI raided Paul Manafort’s home on July 26. In order to get a warrant, they needed to show probable cause. Not good for Manafort.

  1364. Trump says:

    Here’s come the cretin Robbie.

    The only thing this shows is mueller trying to act tough.

    Because he has nothing else to show for millions of dollars already spent

  1365. Trump says:

    Manafort was already providing all stuff, and that’s what the FBI got.

    Watch for the cretin Robbie to drop thus as soon as it fizzles.

    Just like his tighten-the-seat belts Jared testimony.

  1366. Trump says:

    Also notice that the cretin Robbie does not wonder when FBI is going to raid wasserman-Schultz home or Clinton home or fusion gps office

  1367. gameboy says:

    Trump needs to put an end to this nonsense right now. Fire Mueller ASAP. The haters will still hate regardless.

  1368. Trump says:

    The tactics of a police state

  1369. Trump says:

    Nothing more than an intimidation tactic.

    Mueller has nothing, so he is down to intimidation.

  1370. Trump says:

    If he had anything, he would have already leaked it.

  1371. Phil says:

    Predawn raid?

    More of Mueller in search of a crime. That is what this entire thing is all about. Finding something, anything to get rid of Trump or at the very least bleed him daily.

    As I have said repeatedly – the fix is in. Washington wants Trump gone. Couldn’t do it at the ballot box so simply this whole investigation process can be summed up in one short phrase – Bypass the voters.

  1372. Trump says:

    If only there was a competent attorney general in place…

  1373. Trump says:

    And still no crime that has been identified…

  1374. Trump says:

    Maybe they will find the dnc servers and Hillary emails

  1375. Trump says:

    The extreme face of Trump hate.

  1376. Trump says:

    Obama had the FBI raid Manafort’s house on July 26.

  1377. Robbie says:

    Phil says:

    Predawn raid?
    More of Mueller in search of a crime. That is what this entire thing is all about. Finding something, anything to get rid of Trump or at the very least bleed him daily.

    – A warrant couldn’t have been obtained had Mueller’s team not shown probable cause. A judge had to approve it.

  1378. Trump says:

    Obama made the judge approve the warrant.

  1379. Trump says:

    Judges approve all sorts of crapola. Remember the judges who blocked trump eo’s, who later got slapped by the Supreme Court.

    Just have to find the right judge.

  1380. Trump says:

    But the cretin Robbie already knew that.

  1381. Trump says:

    Remember tom delay.

    Remember rick perry.

  1382. Phil says:

    Do they have the death penalty in Pennsylvania? If not send him down here to Texas and we’ll finish him off.

  1383. Trump says:

    According to sources, the judge was told, “do it or you end up like Seth Rich.”

  1384. Phil says:

    Ever heard of judge shopping?

    Give me a break.

  1385. Trump says:

    Remember the guy who shot Steve Scalise. Remember this guy.

    Face of the anti-trump hate.

  1386. Robbie says:

    When news broke last week that Mueller had impaneled a grand jury, my view was it was bad news for Manafort and Flynn. That seems to be the case so far.

    Adam Goldman?
    @adamgoldmanNYT

    FBI seizes Manafort records, ones typically sought when investigating violations of Bank Secrecy Act.

  1387. NYCmike says:

    Robbie statement: “– A warrant couldn’t have been obtained had Mueller’s team not shown probable cause. A judge had to approve it.”

    Evidence to contrary:

    “Judges approve all sorts of crapola. Remember the judges who blocked trump eo’s, who later got slapped by the Supreme Court.

    Just have to find the right judge.”

    “Remember tom delay.

    Remember rick perry.”

    Robbie will just keep yapping…..

  1388. Trump says:

    Mueller is winding this thing down. Nothing to see.

  1389. Trump says:

    Just for record, fake fake Trump is also here.

  1390. Robbie says:

    Deep state! Silent coup! Judge shopping!

    NYCMike will defend the lifelong Democrat no matter what.

  1391. Trump says:

    As evidence, the cretin Robbie dues not even pretend anymore.

  1392. Trump says:

    Pure and unadulterated trump hatred.

    Heading towards the two earlier specimens.

  1393. Trump says:

    The way to avoid investigations in this country is to be a Democrat.

  1394. Trump says:

    Do the John Doe raids against Scott Walker in Wisconsin ring a bell?

    Mueller is just using tried and trusted intimidation tactics.

  1395. Jonesy says:

    Robbie, one pill not 2

  1396. Chicon says:

    If someone gives $1 to a Democrat, s/he’s a Democrat. Doesn’t matter if Republicans received $1B. This you’ll read on conservative sites.

    If someone gives $1 to a Republican, s/he’s a Republican. Doesn’t matter if Democrats received $1B. This you’ll read on liberal sites.

    Both are wrong.

  1397. NYCmike says:

    “Do the John Doe raids against Scott Walker in Wisconsin ring a bell?”

    -Robbie to ignore in 3….2….1…., and then start yapping “deep state silent coup judge shopping polly want a cracker”.

  1398. Chicon says:

    Mike – Robbie’s mind is being operated by emotion rather than logic.

  1399. NYCmike says:

    -Surber was correct all of last year about Trump.

    Will Robbie pay attention to him this time around?

    America wants BOLD ACTION, not nibbling around the edges!

  1400. NYCmike says:

    Is Robbie looking for a job at Google?

    – Funny!

    Logic led me to conclude Trump was unprepared and unqualified to be president. And now we see he’s in way over his head.

    Emotion has led Trumpers to defend the indefensible with excuses like “but the deep state” or “it’s a silent coup”.

  1402. Robbie says:

    NYCmike says:
    August 9, 2017 at 1:24 pm

  1404. DW says:

    link at drudge:

    DOCTOR: Letting Children Play Football Should Be Considered ‘Child Abuse’…

    …if that is child abuse, then soccer should be much more. No helmet or padding at all, dangerous collisions, etc.

  1405. NYCmike says:

    Last paragraphs of the Surber article are worth reading:

    “And what is Paul Ryan’s incentive to stay on as speaker? He could make five to ten times as much money as a lobbyist. He’s never going back to Wisconsin. He is a creature of the swamp. He has lived in Janesville only one year since turning 18, and that was to run for Congress the first time. College in Ohio followed by living in Washington.

    Eric Cantor lost a primary to David Brat. Cantor was rewarded with a nice lobbying job.

    ‘Tis their nature. Washington has become a magnet for men of weak will and poor character.”

    -Robbie to ignore in 3….2….1…., and then start yapping “deep state silent coup judge shopping polly want a cracker”.

    – And NYCMike will dredge obscure websites to find viewpoints that make him feel better and then pivot to how America wants bold leadership that only Tea Party patriots like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee can deliver. And if people won’t deliver, primary them and make sure a Democrat can take over!

  1407. NYCmike says:

    “– Oh, brother. Where did you find this clown’s website?”

    -Surber called it correctly, and never wavered, for Trump right from the beginning.

    Robbie predicted Hillary with over 300 Electoral Votes.

    The definition of “clown”?

    Anyone?

  1408. Robbie says:

    Jonesy says:
    August 9, 2017 at 12:18 pm
    Robbie, one pill not 2

    – Anything to add to your bald faced lie in 1334 that Mueller’s lawyers are telling Trump nothing is sticking to him?

  1409. NYCmike says:

    “– And NYCMike will dredge obscure websites”

    https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/

    Is Instapundit “obscure”?

    – Eric Dumbedero got it right as well. So did Pizzagate pushers Cernovich and Posobiec. Should we listen to them as well?

  1411. NYCmike says:

    “Are you looking to be a flack for the Trump White House?”

    -What is the pay?

    Could I steer some contracts to my brothers?

  1412. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    If you could show me where Surber has any stories similar to “super semen” and “pizzagate”, then I will re-think posting a link from Surber.

    Please do so, or stop your yapping.

  1413. Jonesy says:

    Robbie Rino is really off his meds today

  1414. Robbie says:

    Never heard of Surber and I’m not interested in doing any research on him. I tend to ignore Tea Party opinion generators.

  1415. Phil says:

    Football is child abuse.

    LOL

    Was wondering when they would get around to this one.

  1417. PresidentPaul! says:

    GOP senators speculate that McCain pivotable vote to preserve to save Obamacare may have been due to his brain tumor.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/ron-johnson-mccain-tumor_us_598b2aafe4b0449ed5073ea0?ncid=inblnkushpmg00000009

    I doubt this though because McCain was never a conservative.

  1418. NYCmike says:

    “– Oh, brother. Where did you find this clown’s website?”

    “Never heard of……..”

    -Heh.

    Definition of ignorance.

  1419. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    I always read the links you provide.

    I also read the corrections that are linked to later on…..

  1420. NYCmike says:

    MD, If you are out there…..you can always rely on Author, “CG” and Robbie to make you look good…..maybe.

  1421. NYCmike says:

    MD,

    Unless, of course, your wife has forbidden you from commenting on HHR ever again!

  1422. NYCmike says:

    -Some funny lines:

    “After half a century of urban disorder in Newark, yet another disaster has befallen New Jersey’s largest city: The city’s first Whole Foods just opened.”

  1423. NYCmike says:

    “First it was ar son, then it was cr ack, now it’s farm-fresh goat cheese.”

    “Wh ole Foods is plainly worried that in Newark the shii take might hit the fan.”

  1424. NYCmike says:

    Robbie to dismiss in 3…..2…..1……

  1425. NYCmike says:

    “You’re right, Sherlock. But your insights will be dismissed since you’re a fictional character.

    Holmes shrugged. “Why, that makes me your perfect consulting detective, good fellow.” He winked. “GPS Fusion specializes in fiction.””

  1426. NYCmike says:

    Heh, even Sherlock knew that he would be ignored….

  1427. NYCmike says:

    Diamond Jim?

    Has anyone figured out yet who Orman is going to caucus with?

  1431. NYCmike says:

    MD is too busy posting this on Twitter:

    “For one day Trump managed to distract from Russia. It won’t work for long.”

    He sounds a lot like Robbie…..

  1432. NYCmike says:

    and this:

    “FBI conducted predawn raid of former Trump campaign chairman Manafort’s home http://wapo.st/2hKmN5e?tid=ss_tw&utm_term=.36d16304abf3

    The walls are closing in”

  1433. Trump says:

    Cretin Robbie will remain a sub-cretin idiot.

    Moron does not know that FBI has been investigating Manafort for 3 years now.

  1434. PresidentPaul! says:

    Cut the cord, people!

  1437. NYCmike says:

    Robbie triggered in 3….2…1…

    Donald J. Trump
    ?
    @realDonaldTrump

    Senator Mitch McConnell said I had “excessive expectations,” but I don’t think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?

  1438. Wes says:

    In the “Who gives a good goddamn?” news segment today, Congresswoman Nikki Tsongas (D-Backbencher) is retiring from Congress after 5 3/4 terms.

    I’d say she’ll be missed, but I doubt anyone other LisaB even knew she was in the House for all these years.

  1439. Wes says:

    Oops. 51-35, not 51-31.

  1440. jason says:

    Wobbie is excited about the Manafort raid because the MSM is excited.

    Except that he was being investigated even before Trump announced his candidacy, and it has to do with real estate transactions that have nothing to do with Trump.

  1441. Wes says:

    Reportedly Cynthia Nixon is weighing a challenge to Andrew Cuomo.

    Apparently Dems have their own Deadenders.

  1442. jason says:

    I doubt this though because McCain was never a conservative.”

    Actually, he has always been much more of a conservative than you.

    AND a patriot.

  1443. Trump says:

    And the funny thing is, they apparently seized documents that he had already provided.

  1444. Trump says:

    Cretin Robbie is excited because he is a msm lapdog.

  1445. jason says:

    Cretin Robbie will remain a sub-cretin idiot.

    Moron does not know that FBI has been investigating Manafort for 3 years now.”

    He knows. But this doesn’t matter to the MSM and to Wobbie.

    It’s all about the ends justify the means.

  1446. jason says:

    The guy has been investigated for years.

    If he still has incriminating documents in his house he is a moron.

  1447. Trump says:

    If he had incriminating docs in his house, he should be thrown in jail just for his stupidity.

  1448. Chicon says:

    1517 – McCain has often been referred to as a “maverick”, aka as a person who is independent or unorthodoxed. This is a nickname a Republican gets by straying from the conservative script more than occasionally. Also,
