AL: Strange Within 4% Of Moore

And here we start with the wild swings in polls in Alabama. A new poll that has come through Mitch McConnell’s Super PAC done by a pollster named Jan van Lohuizen has Luther Strange within 4% of Roy Moore.

US SENATE – ALABAMA – GOP PRIMARY RUNOFF (JvL)
Roy Moore 45%
Luther Strange (inc) 41%

This poll was done August 21-23 among likely voters. Since it did come through Mitch McConnell and McConnell is openly supporting Luther Strange, you do need to take that into account.

    Part of Brown University in Rhode Island has been occupied by Indians who want their “sacred lands” back. Unlike the rednecks in South Dakota, am sure the progressive leftists at Brown University will recognize they have wrongfully occupied Indian land, and will give it back.

    “BRISTOL, R.I. — A group identifying itself as the Pokanoket Nation and its supporters occupied the grounds of Brown University’s Haffenreffer Museum’s collection center Sunday afternoon and called on the university to recognize the tribe’s claim to the land.
    Po Wauipi Neimpaug, Sagamore or chief of the Pokanokets, said the property which overlooks Mount Hope Bay was the tribe’s “sacred land.”

    well, since a very large number of women have been sexually assaulted and/or raped

    you probably do know some women. perhaps in your own family.

    they just did not feel comfortable telling you.

  15. lisab says:

    well be sure to make friends

    you want to make a good impression on your first day of class

  16. NYCmike says:

    “you probably do know some women. perhaps in your own family.

    they just did not feel comfortable telling you.”

    -Actually, lisab, I know my wife, and most of her friends for a very long time.

    One of her friend’s husbands was surprised when he found this out.

    He asked me “You knew these girls, and you still married one of them?”.

    And NO, none of them have been sexually assaulted and/or raped.

    I know one of them had to kick a guy in the nads, and one of them punched a guy in the face. I am pretty sure that was the end of that, not the start of something kinky.

    And my sisters are just as fierce.

    When a person is aware that if you “walk off” with someone you don’t really know, they might not be a good person.

    SOOOOOOOOO, don’t “walk off” with anyone you don’t really know.

  17. NYCmike says:

    “Zzzzzzz”

    -You should probably stay awake, so “Trump” doesn’t have to keep correcting you on certain things.

    🙂

  18. Wes says:

    To be fair, since Mikey would probably give his callous “make good where there was evil” remark upon learning a woman was a rape victim, I’m not sure any woman would want to confide such a painful thing to him.

  19. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    When is the wedding?

  20. NYCmike says:

    I have yelled at girl friends of mine for going off alone with guys they did not know…….Wes, he yaps about his “compassion” and “empathy” on the internet.

  21. NYCmike says:

    Also, the terrible Catholic I am, my parents raised my siblings and I to have chaperones, or to go on double dates with other people, since bad people tend NOT to act a certain way when there are witnesses.

    Simple lessons.

  22. wvally says:

    Ummm…you’re diggin a hole Mike.

  23. NYCmike says:

    wvally,

    Que?

  24. wvally says:

    Well, I’m not commenting on the question of abortion after rape.

    But regarding the “simple lesson” of having chaperones to prevent rape–it’s not always that simple.

  25. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – A woman can be drunk and naked and it is not acceptable to assault her. I know you know that. Move on. You will not look good on this argument.

  26. NYCmike says:

    NO, it’s NOT at all that simple.

    BUT, it sure as heck complicates the issue for the bad person, doesn’t it?

    BAD things happen…..I try to prepare every day to deal with what may happen….don’t tell me I am callous about these issues, as I have discussed them with my parents since I am a teenager.

    I am sorry Wes knows people who has dealt with terrible things like this.

    That does NOT mean another person is a misogynist, is callous, is uncaring, or whatever other words the drama queen has used to describe others, simply because they view the world through a different lens.

  27. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    Not once have I said the girl is to blame. Please don’t go there.

    Everything I stated deals with the reality that there are BAD PEOPLE out there, so do things to reduce the chance that you could be a victim.

    That is bad?

    Ok, since I don’t understand how that is bad, moving on.

  28. wvally says:

    I will agree with you there–I don’t think its “misogynist” to be against abortion after rape. It’s a religious belief and I get it. There are undoubtedly both men and women who hold that belief.

    But considering the fact that abortion already is legal for any reason, even if the father is your spouse, making political arguments about abortion after the nightmare scenario of rape is not smart.

    The lesson of Mourdock is—don’t go there.

  29. Wes says:

    It’s Il Mikey vs. the world on this. He makes himself look worse and worse with every post. This is why socons are the bane of political victory.

  30. Wes says:

    For the record, I didn’t say it was misogynist to be personally opposed to post-rape abortion. I DID say Mourdock was misogynist to say God intends pregnancy to result from rape. I stand by that statement and will not back down from it.

  31. NYCmike says:

    wvally,

    I am not arguing about the legality/morality of abortion.

    I am pointing out that some Bill-Clinton-type-massage-therapist should not be acting like a drama queen because he has the terrible fortune to know women who have been victimized in terrible ways.

  32. NYCmike says:

    “This is why socons are the bane of political victory.”

    -Bitterlaw,

    What were you saying about “needing each other”?

  33. Bitterlaw says:

    The GOP has a troubled mix of voters. We either learn to endure each other or lose.

  34. DW says:

    So the hurricane is only starting to hit Texas and the left is already saying Trump failed in his handling of the crisis.

  35. wvally says:

    united we stand in despising the media

  36. NYCmike says:

    “So the hurricane is only starting to hit Texas and the left is already saying Trump failed in his handling of the crisis.”

    -Well, we all know the headlines have been written already, so at least they are becoming more honest about their bias.

  37. jason says:

    I always gave Mourdock a pass the content of his statement because I understood what he was trying to say. I never gave him a pass on thinking this was the right topic to talk about or for being a moron deadender.

  38. jason says:

    Valerie Plame trying to buy Twitter so she can ban Trump.

    I thought she was just a non-political civil servant wronged by the Bush administration.

  39. jason says:

    Can you imagine the MSM reaction if Trump tried to buy Twitter so he could, for example, ban Obama.

  40. NYCmike says:

    https://pjmedia.com/trending/2017/08/25/morning-briefing-trump-put-diet-highly-curated-information-much-much/

    -I have not been as troubled by President Trump’s actions as many here, simply because I do not trust any Chief of Staff to push the MOST CONSERVATIVE viewpoint, and the press has actively been against every single action he has taken.

    That said, I do understand their being a need for a gatekeeper, as there is WAY TOO MUCH INFO out there for any one person to digest, and react in the correct way.

    I hope Kelly is more conservative-oriented than most people in D.C.

  41. Bitterlaw says:

    Cutler looked good against the worst secondary in the NFL. NYC could throw a touchdown pass against the Eagles.

    Cutler usually looks good in games that don’t mean anything.

  43. jason says:

    NYC could throw a touchdown pass against the Eagles.”

    Nahhhhh…. he would have an open receiver but he would then spike the ball to send a message.

  44. jason says:

    Asked by the media on why he spiked the ball, NYC would explain:

    Losing with a message is better than winning.

  45. NYCmike says:

    LOL!

    You know where to send it, A-Hole….

    That’s a bit broad.

  51. JulStol says:

    “well, since a very large number of women have been sexually assaulted and/or raped…”

    This is 100% accurate and it’s disturbing how often a family member is responsible.

    Of the females I know in my age group, 90% of them have been sexually assaulted, molested by a family member, or raped.

  52. NYCmike says:

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/08/gary-cohn-declares-antifa-great-americans-standing-equality-freedom/

    -Bannon shipped out, and this is the guy Robbie never mentioned as being bad?

  53. NYCmike says:

    “90% of them”

    -Do the other 10% have low self-esteem issues?

    That is an absurd number, and a HUGE SIGN something is wrong with the way people think.

  54. NYCmike says:

    YES, that was supposed to be a cruel joke, to highlight the fact that such a statement, that 90% of women have been sexually assaulted, molested, and/or raped is absolutely DISGUSTING!

    And my “limited” mind is not able to process such a ridiculous situation.

  55. NYCmike says:

    Those guns you own should have some notches on them, if that statement is correct.

  56. JulStol says:

    NYC,

    I value my personal freedom more than I do avenging wrongs done to friends and acquaintances. There’s definitely a socioeconomic aspect here as most grew up in a single parent (usually single mother) household, most do not have college degrees (a few didn’t even complete high school), most make less than $30k a year.

    Go to any non-high end bar in America and the number of women 21-30ish who have been in some way sexually violated (non-consensual) will be over 50%.

  57. lisab says:

    YES, that was supposed to be a cruel joke, to highlight the fact that such a statement, that 90% of women have been sexually assaulted, molested, and/or raped is absolutely DISGUSTING!

    ———————————

    well nyc,

    since, most research suggests that at least 5% of women have been sexually assaulted or raped in the usa

    and since you probably know more than 20 women and indeed probably have more than 20 women in your extended family and friends circle

    in all likelihood one or more of the women you know has been sexually assaulted

    and hey just did not feel comfortable sharing that information with you

  58. lisab says:

    or to put it another way

    if no woman has ever shared their story with you

    in all likelihood there is a reason why they are not comfortable sharing that info with you

  59. JulStol says:

    LisaB,

    There’s probably some…let’s say selection bias in NYC’s circle (as there is in mine).

    NYC’s network is more likely to be educated, come from a stable family, and be high-achieving/high earning.

    Nearly every female I interact with on a regular basis is bisexual, suffers from clinical depression/bipolar disorder, is “poorly educated” (most are actually quite intelligent, but are self taught), and again, single parent households.

  60. lisab says:

    i took that into account, as the low end estimate of women who have been sexually assaulted is 5%

    it may be as high as 10% of college educated women

  61. lisab says:

    also nyc,

    since roughly 1 in 4 women have abortions, the chance you don’t know anyone is very small, that is, if you have known in your lifetime 20 women of age 45 or older, the chance that none of them have had an abortion is very low

  62. lisab says:

    the chance that they have not shared that information with you is however probably pretty high

  64. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Rasmussen Poll:

    88% U.S. likely voters oppose removing names of Washington and Jefferson from public places and taking down their statues; only 7% favor;

    90% oppose closing or changing Mount Rushmore because slave owning Washington and Jefferson are presented;only 6% favor;

  65. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Trump is being a lot more judicious in his use of twitter. Even his “attack tweets” are pretty mild now.

  67. lisab says:

    so we can estimate that 10%+ or so of the dem party is extreme, since most of the people who would want to close mt rushmore would be dems

    is 10% enough to push the party to the extreme left?

    on the one hand they will tend to be the most vocal

    otoh they will have little money

  68. CashCow TM says:

    I hear the alt right is now on a crusade to ban reruns of the TV show “The Jeffersons”.

    Yes it was a sitcom about how a Black guy (George Jefferson) made it big and moved on up to the “East Side”–but it was called the Jeffersons (George and his wife ‘Weezie’) and Jefferson owned slaves.

    I am sure tht antifa(natics) also want the actor that played George JEFFERSON to cede all his wealth he earned from being on that show.

  70. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Here is a sad plea to Obama by one of his supporters. She is finally realizing what many others already know about Obama:

    “What you are shouts so loudly in my ears I cannot hear what you say.”

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/24/opinion/obama-trump-charlottesville-moral.html

    “At first, and despite the seismic tonal shifts of early 2017, it was a joy to watch you on a deserved, extended holiday. Gelato. Kitesurfing. Taking pictures of natural-haired Michelle on a yacht. You were being carefree, and it was wonderful. Then came a deeper quiet. You came back, wore your collar open, signed a book deal. I was still happy for you, but there was an ache to it.

    Don’t get me wrong — I’ve enjoyed your few public engagements so far this year. You spoke meaningfully on climate change in Milan. You eloquently repudiated the continuing attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. It was heartening to see the people of Berlin receive you so warmly, and to watch you speak with Chancellor Angela Merkel. Mr. Obama, you were, as ever, subtle, insightful and measured. But I know that you know that we can’t be hiding behind walls.

    As a rule, I do not speak back to the television when I am alone. Or I didn’t used to. And then, around the time of James Comey’s firing, I listened to Alan Dershowitz basically announce that the apocalypse we’ve been dreading is upon us. I started to feel actual panic. I found myself yelling at the screen, and into the universe: “Barack! Where are you?””

  71. NYCmike says:

    lisab,

    I most definitely know women who have had abortions. The pregnancies were NOT the result of rape.

    I have relayed stories about 2 such women from my California days. I counseled both of them to have the baby.

    The one who had an abortion is still child-less, has been divorced twice, and last I heard about her, was on Facebook lamenting not having had children.

    The one who listened to me (along with other friends, probably) swallowed her pride, called her parents, and went through with the pregnancy, now has a daughter almost ready to graduate from college, and also met a man shortly after giving birth to that first daughter, who married her, and they now have 2 more kids.

  72. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    76. “Our tour guide said that all of sin city’s electricity was now produced by green energy and implied most of that was solar.”

    Did your tour guide explain to you how the solar panels were able to produce energy at night? For reasons you are probably aware, Las Vegas has a higher than normal energy use at night.

    If you had continued along I-15 west towards the California border, outside of La Vegas you would have seen the Walter M Higgins natural gas plant, which produces 530 MW of power.

  73. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    76. Here is a Forbes article you should forward to your tour guide; Nevada and Las Vegas are overwhelmingly powered by natural gas.

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/rrapier/2016/12/23/sorry-las-vegas-isnt-close-to-running-entirely-on-renewable-energy/#13bb2ed63373

  74. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Cow, you actually saw one of the major power sources for Las Vegas. The Navajo coal power plant sends 255 MW of power to Las Vegas. NVEnergy (the major Nevada utility company) owns 11.3% of the Navajo coal plant.

    My experience has been to doubt the validity of most the claims made by renewable energy advocates, much of what they say is false – often blatantly so, as is the case here.

  105. McCain says:

    The President has the authority to make this pardon, but doing so at this time undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law as Mr. Arpaio has shown no remorse for his actions.”

  117. McCain says:

    With his pardon of Arpaio, Trump has chosen lawlessness over justice, division over unity, hurt over healing. Once again, the president has acted in support of illegal, failed immigration enforcement practices that target people of color and have been struck down by the courts. His pardon of Arpaio is a presidential endorsement of racism.

  118. Paul says:

    He should have pardoned drug dealers, like President Obama did, while in office.

  119. Bitterlaw says:

    I do not like the pardon. At least not right now. He was guilty of violating a judge’s order. I know many at HHR think that is ok because they hate judges. I don’t. Before Tina lies about what I said in the past, you can hate lawyers and judges.

    I thought a person had to show remorse or a positive change to be considered for a pardon. I guess not.

    The far left has decided now is the time to go all in on their real agenda… that America and it’s constitution and it’s influence are inherently bad and irredeemable because it’s creators were bad.

  127. Mr.Vito says:

    Of course, the Constitution was created entirely or almost entirely by straight white Christian men.

    The left has made victim groups of all others and coincidentally labeled straight white Christian men as the cause of their ills.

  128. Mr.Vito says:

    When straight white Christian men object, they are silenced in the name of white privelege or out and out racism, sexism, xenophobia, or homophobia.

    It’s an interesting racket.

  129. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    According to a new Nevada GOP Senate primary poll, incumbent Dean Heller at 31% and his opponent, Danny Tarkanian, at 39%.
    Heller, whom I like, and Flake(AZ) did not learn from Ayotte’s(NH) and Heck’s(NV) 2016 mistakes.

  130. Mr.Vito says:

    The left then is outraged when this group (expectedly) begins to vote or think as a bloc, which of course must be labeled as a whitelash or reversion to white supremacy.

  131. Mr.Vito says:

    The question remains, has the left amassed enough pawns to pull it off?

    Either they think so, or see the election of Trump as having forced their hand.

  132. Tina says:

    We have to worry about retaining flakes senate seat, if flake overcomes the primary challenge or not.

    This appears to be leaning drat.

    @realDonaldTrump #hurricane keep on top of hurricane Harvey dont mke same mistake Pres Bush made w Katrina

    There is no chocolocare city mayah and a governor blank invovled.

  134. Mr.Vito says:

    “I thought a person had to show remorse or a positive change to be considered for a pardon.”

    He does not dispute that judges order should have been followed. So, I guess that’s that.

  135. Tina says:

    Mitch McConnell is Steve Bannon’s top priority: ‘I’m going to light him up’

  136. Mr.Vito says:

    Latest models have Harvey just offshore again 72 hours from now. This is going to be a rainfall disaster.

    Trump had better be ready, because the worst is just beginning.

  137. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Am not a fan of Arpaio, but when you consider Obama commuted the sentence of the traitor Chelsea Manning, and the terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera, in comparison the pardon of Arpaio seems pretty benign.

  138. Phil says:

    I live 50 miles due north from Houston and my rain gauge says five and a half inches in the last seven hours. I can only imagine what it is like in Houston and south of there. Storm isn’t supposed to move off the Texas coast until Thursday so, yeah, forty inches is likely.

  139. lisab says:

    boston’s wettest year was

    1878 – 65.53 inches of total precipitation

    which includes both rain and snow

  140. lisab says:

    boston’s highest temperature

    104 degrees – July 4, 1911

    so you can see the clear effects of global warming over time

  141. lisab says:

    in short, we dont allow 40 inches of rain in a week

    we like to spread that out over say 10 months, maybe a year

  142. Cash Cow TM says:

    Got home and sleep in own bed about 4 a.m.

    Already helping Walt do the laundry and empty the kitty litter box.

    Ready to get back to normal.

    I stand corrected in my comment in #144.

  144. McCain says:

    Mr. Vito: It is our president who is attacking the constitution. Us on the left and right, our defending the constitution.

  145. McCain says:

    -Freedom of speech
    -Free Press
    -Freedom to assemble
    -No establishment of religion

  146. Phil says:

    Please explain to us how freedoms of speech, press and assembly have been in any way violated or even limited. Also tell us what particular established religion you are referring to.

  147. McCain says:

    I consider Trump’s attacks against legitimate free press as fake and the enemy of the nation as an attack on the First Amendment.

  148. Mr.Vito says:

    “It is our president who is attacking the constitution.”

    Oh… well… my mistake. :Eyeroll:

    152 Is a good starter list of what the left has been attacking… they’ve run afoul of the ACLU on all four.

  149. Mr.Vito says:

    “…they’ve run afoul of the ACLU on all four.”

    That’s how totally bonkers they’ve gone.

  150. McCain says:

    Mr. Vito. I’m glad we agree about our president.

  151. Mr.Vito says:

    “…our president.”

    You just got ostracized from your movement. Congrats.

  152. Mr.Vito says:

    Ten ‘Hail Obama’s’ and a week of virtue-signaling for you.

  153. Phil says:

    Trump is supposed to shut his mouth and just let CNN piss all over daily him and never say a thing or defend himself. Calling them out is somehow violating a free press?

    They are allowed to say any damned thing they want and do so 24/7. Guess what. He has the same right to push back.

    You’re disturbed because he doesn’t just lay there and take it like W did during his second term. Never offer a defense or push back. Those were the days. Right?

    Always with the left it is supposed to be a one way street – can dish it out but they can’t take it. If someone claws back that is somehow violating “free press” Absolute BS.

  154. Diamond Jim says:

    Oh… well… my mistake. :Eyeroll:

    Careful with the eyerolls Mr. Vito. Remember your eyes are only sewn to your face.

  155. Bitterlaw says:

    I don’t play the “But President (fill me name) pardoned (fill in the name)” game. I do not agree with the pardon of Arpaio but it’s done.

  156. JulStol says:

    The President should go Abraham Lincoln on the Press.

  157. Wes says:

    Phil posted the greatest response ever to ldfist media bias in 160.

    Great job, Phil!

  158. Tina says:

    Tark pulls ahead of heller in nv primary poll.

  159. Bitterlaw says:

    I think Trump should fight back. However, he undercuts himself when he punches down at nobodies like Mika about plastic surgery.

  160. Tina says:

    Adam Schiff
    Adam Schiff @AdamSchiffCA
    .@realDonaldTrump’s pardon of Arpaio, convicted of discrimination against immigrants, demonstrates little regard for country or rule of law.

    Schiff for Brains does not know constitutional law.

  161. Tina says:

    The leftist judge did deny arpaio a trial by jury. As far as the oreisential power to pardon, he acted.

  162. Wes says:

    Tark is a multitime loser with a host of financial problems. Heller needs to focus on being a good Senator for Nevada snd let Senate Leadership Fund nuke Tark.

  163. Wes says:

    Tark ran for State Senate in 2004. He lost.

    He next ran for NVSOS in 2006. He lost.

    He then ran for Senate in 2010. Sharron Angle beat him in the primary.

    In 2012, Tark ran for US House. He lost.

    In 2016, Tark was back–yet again–running for US House in a different district. He lost–yet again.

    Perhaps Nevadans are trying to givd the NVGOP a hint with their perennial rejection of Tark’s candidacy for everything from dogcatcher to Senator.

  164. Wes says:

    Meanwhile, Dean Heller was an Assemblyman from Nevada from 1991 to 1999.

    He won three elections as NVSOS–1998! 2002, and 2006.

    He was elected to US House in 2006, 2008, and 2010.

    In 2011, Brian Sandoval appointed Heller to Senate. In 2012, Heller survived a strong challenge for a full term even as Obsma carried the state fairly comfortably.

    I can truly see why Silver State Republicans might think Tark is thr better candidate. 🙄

  165. Wes says:

    My mistake. Heller served in the Nevada Assembly from 1991 to 1995. He won his SOS races in 1994, 1998, and 2002 brfore successfully running for Congress.

  166. JC says:

    Tark ran for State Senate in 2004. He lost.

    He next ran for NVSOS in 2006. He lost.

    He then ran for Senate in 2010. Sharron Angle beat him in the primary.

    In 2012, Tark ran for US House. He lost.

    In 2016, Tark was back–yet again–running for US House in a different district. He lost–yet again.
    ———————-

    There was another politician who kept losing at everything…

    until he become the first Republican president.

  167. JC says:

    Flake approval – 18%
    McConnel approval – 18%
    Heller approval – 22%
    Corker approval – 34%

    Strange RCP avg – 32%
    Ayotte – lost election
    Heck – lost election

    Wow, it’s almost like going out of your way to publicly dis your own party’s president while sanctimoniously acting morally superior is not a great election strategy. Who knew?
