Harper Polling has dumped out a new poll in the state of Alabama that seems to mirror another recent poll showing a tight race in the runoff election.

US SENATE – ALABAMA – GOP PRIMARY RUNOFF (Harper)
Roy Moore 47%
Luther Strange (inc) 45%

    New Trump approvals from Gallup. Key groups vs. January:

    Republicans
    Jan: 89%
    Now: 78%

    Whites
    Jan: 56%
    Now: 45%

    Midwest
    Jan: 50%
    Now: 39%

  3. Trump says:

    Gallup? Didn’t they admit they didn’t know how to poll anymore?

  4. Trump says:

    Flake took a page out of the Ayotte-Heck playbook of “cut your nose to spite your face”.

    Do these folks have any sane advisers?

  5. Trump says:

    How can Flake have a lower approval rating than A senator who is about to start a federal trial for corruption?

  6. jason says:

    Kelli Ward is the kind of “Republican” I thankfully don’t have to vote for anymore.

  7. jason says:

    Liberal judge throws out Palin suit, which was a no-brainer slam dunk case.

    But she is not a liberal.

  8. jason says:

    According to the judge, “mistakes” are allowed for in journalism.

    Translation: the ends justify the means.

  9. jason says:

    I believe those polls numbers are probably accurate, at least in the sense that Trump’s approval has been fallen.

    But given the media onslaught he has faced, 99.9% negative coverage 24/7, those numbers are fairly resilient.

  10. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    9. Agree with Jason. Its way to early to predict the 2020 election. Reagan’s and Clinton’s early poll numbers went down, and both were re-elected.

    There are also a lot of “lesser of two evil” voters out there. They may not approve of Trump’s job performance, but they will not support an extreme left candidate against him.

    -Robbie,

    More proof that a #NeverTrumper is now permanently lodged on Trump’s groin!

  13. Wes says:

    Moore is losing steam. Thank God. The NYCMike-approved Deadendr is the only Republican Dems csn possibly best for this Senate seat. Strange needs to win this.

    Meanwhile, in Arizona, Jeff Flake has fatally compromised himself while, again, the NYCMike-approved Kelli Ward is a disaster of a candidate. Grand Canyon State Republicans need to rally around DeWit and pressure Flake to retire to prevent hipster moonbat Sinema from taking ghe seat.

  14. Wes says:

    I do wonder how Mikey will square my statement that the AZGOP needs to make Flake retire with his erroneous belief that I think GOP officehlders should hold thrir seats for life.

  15. Phil says:

    Flake did it to himself. He’s out of a job now in 2018. Guess his lefty MSM friends he cares so much about are now going to save his bacon.

    NOT.

    Was it worth it, Jeff?

  16. Wes says:

    We just know NYCMike is going to have one sticky keyboard and monitor if Tark manages to win the primary and hand Jacky Rosen an early Christmas present of a giftwrapped Senate seat:

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/sen-dean-heller-distances-himself-trump-arpaio-daca-border-wall-n796751

  17. Wes says:

    I don’t disagree, Phil. Ward, however, is unacceptable. That’s why I want DeWit to win the primary and take the seat.

  18. Phil says:

    So Palin’s lawsuit has been thrown out.

    Well, I see after two days of a news blackout due to our home power being out that the world is still run by liberals.

    No change. Conservatives still getting hosed by the elites.

  19. Phil says:

    I agree about Ward, Wes. Ward is a loser and we will get a liberal Democrat in that seat.

    Disaster. Thanks a lot, Jeff.

  20. Wes says:

    As the Tea Party will tell you, Phil, it’s their wingnuts or bust in these primaries.

    Just read various bloggers’ messageboards from 2014 when Deadenders actually started freaking out because Republicans were about to capture the Senate from the Dems.

    I think these clowns or gasm off losing.

  21. Phil says:

    Any chance one of the Arizona GOP congressmen can file for the seat?

  22. Wes says:

    Franks and McSally are considering.

  23. Wes says:

    They would split the non-loony toon vote though. It’s best if DeWit gets a free shot at the lunatic.

  24. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    You could go square yourself.

    Please let me know where I wrote that I prefer any of the other options to the current incumbent.

    I do approve of challengers, simply because some incumbents do NOT please their constituents.

    You are the one against primary challengers, until of course you agree with me, as in Flake’s case.

    Of course, according to “CG” and Freedomworks, Flake is the quintessential conservative Republican.

  25. Phil says:

    McSally would be a slam dunk winner in the GE if she could somehow get by the primary. Need Flake to retire for that to happen. Wes is right, Flake would take enough votes away from McSally to nominate Ward.

    Retire, Jeff. You are a dead man walking either way.

  26. NYCmike says:

    Wes finally gets religion on primary challengers:

    Flake pisses off base.
    Base wants someone different.
    Wes is against challengers.

    Flake keeps pissing off voters (“Meanwhile, in Arizona, Jeff Flake has fatally compromised himself”) and may lose to the Democrat.
    Base is consistent, still wants someone else.
    Wes flip flops like a John-Kerry-wanna-be, is now for a challenger, as long as it is his challenger, nobody else, of course.

    Wes yaps about sticky keyboards…..AGAIN…..still no word on when he will be married.

  27. NYCmike says:

    Two Senators, through no fault of anyone at HHR, and through no fault of “deadenders”, may lose their respective races, and Wes keeps yapping about “Mikey this” and “Kelli Ward that”, as if the 2 incumbents have not been the ones in office for these past years.

    WHY are they so unpopular in their respective states?
    How did it get to the point where their states didn’t want to vote for them?

    Will Wes ever look to find out answers for those questions, or will he just look to keep licking sticky keyboards after his latest massage session?

  28. NYCmike says:

    I also hope “CG” comes back to straighten Wes out about how good a conservative Flake is…..

  31. NYCmike says:

    “CG”,

    Phil and Wes need some straightening out, and I don’t mean their Longfellow.

  32. McCain says:

    Palin would have had to prove that the story caused damage. Perhaps she didn’t have anything left to damage.

    Hi, phil. Welcome,.

    Grassley s findings that crooked comedy paid for the pepe dossier is nothing new.

  35. Tina says:

    https://mobile.twitter.com/washingtonpost/status/902533937267953665

    Lol, wp with more fake news.

    Fake and disgusting.

  36. Tina says:

    Really, media, pres. trump ca,e too soon. Theynsure slammed bush for not coming too soon.

    Theynthrash melania for wearing stilettos on the plane.

  37. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “llinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan sued the city of Chicago Tuesday, asking a federal court to stop the city’s police department from engaging in what the suit calls a “pattern of using excessive force” and other discriminatory misconduct against Chicago’s African-American and Latino residents.

    Madigan announced the lawsuit at a news conference Tuesday afternoon alongside Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel.”

    In 2016 there were 762 murders, and 4,331 shooting victims, in Chicago. The police killed only 11 people, and injured another 14. One reason for the police shootings was that attacks upon the police doubled in Chicago in 2016.

    Yet the Democratic leadership in Illinois wants to focus on the police; not gangs and narcotics. And Democrats like these will somehow be viewed by voters as a better alternative than Trump?

    Oh but Melania was wearing the wrong type of shoes in Texas, that changes everything.

  38. Tina says:

    Melania wore the wrong shoes…on the plane.

    Fact, she changed shoes during flight to tennies. And wore them.

    Trump came too soon.

    Fact, we are mad since we wanted katrina 2.0.

  39. Phil says:

    I have no doubt the press will go full bore into Melania fashiongate.

    That’s one that will backfire. The MSM can’t help themselves.

    The people of my state were glad to see Mr & Mrs Trump here today and will be happy to welcome them back on Saturday.

    Screw the media.

  40. Trump says:

    The media, like rabid nevertrumpers, cannot help themselves. Both suffer from massive psychological problem.

  41. biomom says:

    I agree. There is something wrong with the media who fixate on this trivia and whose biases seem to overwhelm common sense.

  42. Phil says:

    Fourteen Looters in Houston face life in prison.

    Welcome to Texas, boys. Did they think they were in New Orleans?

  43. Trump says:

    They thought they were in Berkeley.

  44. Trump says:

    Or Ferguson.

    ——————————-

    if the r’s gain 4 seats in the senate, mitch becomes unimportant. even three seats gained make him almost unimportant.

  58. Wes says:

    Michael Flatley is the Lord of the Dance!

    Darth Vader is the Lord of the Sith!

    NYCMike is the Lord of the Deadenders!

    MIKey is now talking up a ghoulish woman who openly hoped John McCain would die so Governor Ducey would appoint her to the Senate and spent her 2016 primary campaign talking about chemtrails.

    I respected Il Mikey when he was an Eph Rove parody. When he became Deadender-in-Chief and basically started spewing BJG-style nonsense on here though, I knew he was too far gone to be redeemed.

  59. Wes says:

    Actually, Lisa, that’s the opposite of true. The larger a majority he has, the more powerful McConnell becomes because he has to cater less to individual Senators’ egos to stave off defections and get things passed.

    Thus, McConnell would want Republicans to have as large a Senat2e conference as possible.

  60. lisab says:

    The larger a majority he has, the more powerful McConnell becomes because he has to cater less to individual Senators’ egos to stave off defections and get things passed.
    ——————————————

    that would be true if mcconnell wholeheartedly supported trump’s agenda. he does not.

    a smaller majority allows mcconnell to pick and choose which laws he really wants to support and deny those he does not like

    a large majority means that trump can go around him. if the gop wins 4 seats, and has a 56-44 majority it would take 7 defections to stop trump. mcconnell probably could not manage that without openly fighting with trump.

  61. NYCmike says:

    YES, Lord of the “deadenders”!

    When is the wedding, Wes?

  62. Wes says:

    You’re assuming McConnell has a Rube Goldberg strategy of keeping his Senate majority small so as to stymy Trump’s agenda, Lisa. In fact, all indications are that McConnell wants as many Republicans to serve in the Senate as possible. Not only does a larger majority enable McConnell to more effectively shut down Schumer, but it lessens the chances Dems can recapture the Senate

  63. lisab says:

    You’re assuming McConnell has a Rube Goldberg strategy of keeping his Senate majority small so as to stymy Trump’s agenda,
    —————————–

    no, i am just saying he becomes less important as the majority grows. currently mcconnell with mccain, murkowski and collins have power far beyond their single votes.

    if the gop gained 4 seats, or even 3, mccain, murkowski, and collins would lose most of their power.

    mcconnell would enjoy the perks of being the majority leader, which are substantial, but would lose his ability to stop trump’s agenda.

    Looking at the flooding, and reading a lot about all of the dams, reservoirs, floodgates, as well as about the land itself sinking over the years……having more of an appreciation for strict, BUT LOCAL, development laws.

    Lots of these places, same as in Sandy, are under water because they have been built in the recent past, when newer construction methods made it possible to do so.

    100 years ago, many of these communities could not have been built because modern services were unable to reach them.

    Boy, oh boy, what an absolute mess down there!

    Please take all precautions if you live in these areas, stay safe and good luck!

  66. Phil says:

    I thought the Melania shoe thing was an isolated story. Nope. All over the Washington Post, NYT, Boston Globe, networks, lefty websites, etc.

    Unbelievable. All that death and destruction and suffering and the left makes a story of what kind of shoes Trump’s wife wears from the WH to the plane.

    You just have to shake your head.

  67. Bitterlaw says:

    Phil – How is it in your area? Are you closer to Dallas?

  68. Tina says:

    Phil, they want katrima 2.0.

    She wore stilettos to the plane going to tx. had tennis shoes when she came down,

    No biggie, unless you are in jebot, drat, never trump world.

    I realize that most never trumpers are closeted drats, like ann navaro.

  69. Phil says:

    Bitter, We’re doing ok. We live fifty miles due north of Houston in Huntsville. We got twenty one inches at the house. Nothing compared to what they got hit with in Houston of course. No flooding here and outside of losing power for a couple of days just inconvenience. My best friend lives in Deer Park (eastern outskirts of Houston) got 55 inches according to his measurement. Totally flooded of course. He says the footage on the news doesn’t even begin to show how bad it is.

  70. Bitterlaw says:

    Phil – Did you ever think that you would feel lucky to only have 21 inches of rain? I’m glad to hear that you escaped relatively ok. I hope that you and your wife are coping with her medical issues.

  71. Bitterlaw says:

    Never Trumpers Jason and Corey are not closet Democrats. MD? I don’t think he was a Democrat. I think he just went all in on predicting a Hillary landslide and could not escape his promise to be “relentless.” If he really was a closet Democrat, then he is the greatest troll in internet history to have posted here for 12 years.

  80. Bitterlaw says:

    The narrative is that Houston was correct to not issue an evacuation order because people might have drowned in their cars.

    Much better to drown at home. The storm was unprecedented but here is an idea for the future. Go find some buildings that won!.t be under water in a hurricane and tell people to go there 2 days before it hits.

    As for Joel Osteen, he’s a douche.

  81. Bitterlaw says:

    I thought Tgca was going to talk about ABORTION!

  82. JC says:

    In today’s you-can’t-make-this-s**t-up news, Nancy Pelosi did what Rubio, Ryan, Romney, and McCain have yet to do; publicly condemn the violent antifa thugs for beating up conservative protesters.

    I guess the GOPe gang is far too busy praising them as ‘peaceful protesters fighting against hate’, as Rubio described them, to take notice of the fact that these people have been routinely beating up their own supporters with bats and clubs. After all, there is a media narrative that needs to be capitulated to.

    Of course, Pelosi doesn’t actually mean what she says. Liberals would never willingly condemn any behavior that is trying to advance their cause unless it is hurting them politically. More likely, they are polling this issue and discovering that it is absolutely toxic to the electorate.

    Which is why, after nearly a year of indiscriminate violent behavior being swept under the rug, the media is all of a sudden interested in condemning antifa violence. They’ve been given their marching orders from the DNC.

  83. Tina says:

    Quittens, rubio, and the az twins are tone deaf.

  84. Tina says:

    “Texans aren’t hating CNN. Texans are hating CNN back.” Perfectly put,

    -Heh, Christie said “Past is prologue.”

    Wes should get a kick out of that.

    Judging by what the arguments are, the “emergency” spending was WAY LESS than what the bill called for, but the majority of the spending went to things related to problems exacerbated by Sandy.

    The Washington Post gave Cruz “3 Pinocchios”, which further proves my opinion that they are an appendage of BIG GOVERNMENT DEMOCRATS.

    Cruz, and many other Republicans, were correct in seeking to limit “emergency” funds to actual emergencies. The same rule should apply down in Texas.

    Cruz stretched the truth, as did Christie.
    Christie is also a jack*ss.

  86. Cash Cow TM says:

  87. Big E says:

    As one who lives in Houston, it was near impossible to evacuate Houston. You could not evacuate to the wast because you would have gone into hurricane. You not go east because that was the dirty side of the storm. You could not put folks on boats. 4-5 million people would have to go up I 45 and I 69/59. It would have been like Hurricane Rita. A giant parking lot between Houston and Dallas would be created. Thousands would have died on the roads. People would be stranded because they would run out of gas. It would have been the greatest human tragedy in 50 years. As a very far right leaning person, I am not questioning the mayor. This was the best of many bad choices.

  88. NYCmike says:

    Be careful out there, Big E.

    We are trying to send as much help and supplies as we can.

    Hold on for now.

  89. Waingro says:

    This is the worst, most tone-deaf speech @realDonaldTrump has ever given. Jeb! had better ideas.

  90. NYCmike says:

    What speech is that?

  91. Waingro says:

    #98, I guess Trump is proposing a new major income tax cut bill (exact proposal is unclear), and Ann is mad because he is focusing on this instead of THE WALL.

  92. Wes says:

    Before Lynn Yaeger attacked Melania for the heels, Nina Burleigh–famous for both saying women should wear what they want free of criticism and offering Bill Clinton oral sex for “keeping abortion legal”–attacked Melania and all other women attached to Donald Trump for wearing heels.

    Hypocritical leftist bitches.

  93. Wes says:

    #92

    Wait, is that possible? MD repeatedly told us during the 2014 cycle Democrats would win because “the past is not prologue!.”

    Now you’re saying Chris Christie is contradicting what MD has to say about the past. Say it’s not so.

  94. Wes says:

    Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham both have a string of leftist bedmates in their personal pasts. Nonetheless they propose to be the arbiters of conservative thouhht in this country?

    Mikey, how can two never married women who’ve had sex with multiple liberals be the determinants of conservative thought in the US?

    Big E – I stand corrected. Given that there is no way to evacuate Houston, I hope that a better system of helping people find shelter can be developed in the future. Good luck.

  99. MikeP says:

    I totally agree with Big E, my wife and just drove about 40 miles north from clear lake /NASA area. we went up I-45 into central downtown Houston,then across to the Galleria area. We only saw some wet spots most have drained to the Galveston Bay. It looks like about 20-25% of Houston tragically impacted. The current impacted areas are around two water catchment reservoirs, two rivers and one bayou. Still thousands effected.

  100. Bitterlaw says:

    My wife is a Jewish Republican. I suspect that she has voted for some Democrats in the past. She did not vote for President in 2016 because she hated Hillary and Trump. I can accept her views.

    Now, if she ever switched to cheering for the Mets or Dallas Cowboys, I would have to re-evaluate the relationship.

  101. MikeP says:

    speak about evacuating Houston, think about evacuating Chicago

  102. Bitterlaw says:

    MikeP – Good point. I guess cities better start rethinking their emergency plans.

    -Puts a lot of things into perspective.

    Also, those who go around flippantly using the word “Nazi” and “racist” to describe their political opponents should be ashamed of themselves.

    This woman’s story describes true EVIL.

  104. Big E says:

    There are good plans to evacuate Houston. They were developed after Hurricane Rita.
    They did not a a Hurricane moving 50 miles inland and stopping for three days this cutting off the evacuation routes. Originally the storm was going to make landfall near Houston. It the moved track to make land fall further south. We all new we were going to get the rainfall. What nobody could predict was the volume.

  105. Big E says:

    We are doing well. Family in good shape. No power. One of 4% without power. We almost lost the house Monday night but were fortunate. The worst thing is that for two days the grocery have open but they have no bread, milk or meat. If you are vegan life is good. Army helicopters were circling our house 24/7. Neighbors got their boats and rescued people. Overall response was very good.

  106. JC says:

    Well, after a whole year of blatant domestic terrorism being committed against against republican voters, it’s good to know that the GOP house leader finally decided to chime in.

    Via a staffer, of course.

    Too bad he had to wait for his master, Pelosi, to give out the marching orders first.

    With leaders like these, who needs democrats?

  107. Bitterlaw says:

    Don’t worry, JC. After you purify the GOP to your standards, you will have lots of Democrats in office.

  108. JC says:

    No, we’ll just have less D’s masquerading as R’s.

  109. Bitterlaw says:

    You’ll see the Real Dems. You don’t get to decide who is a real Republican. Unlike the Dems, we don’t have to be monolithic. I would prefer more conservatives but here is a shocking truth. There are not enough conservatives to build a majority in either chamber of Congress. I dedicated 31 years to the GOP. Here’s a clue. If you spent less time hating Republicans who win elections and more time electing your kind of people (who are only united by the empty suit Trump)
    you can replace the never defined Establishment. Of course, you will eventually hate them, too. I was forced to vote for Trump. I do not need any of his clones in office.

  110. Bitterlaw says:

    Face it, JC. We’re stuck together or the Dems take over.

  111. Trump says:

    You either get trump, or you get Obama.

    Romney and McCain already proved that.

  112. Trump says:

    When you have a choice between dem and dem lite, he em always wins.

  113. Trump says:

    Trump is your last chance.

  114. Trump says:

    What was the last “conservative” accomplishment of the GOP congress?

    Don’t google.

  115. Trump says:

    When only 1 in 6 of your own party approves of your job, you should know that you have fu ck d up royally.

  116. Trump says:

    That’s how you got trump.

    That’s how you wil get the Dems.

  117. JC says:

    Corker, McCain, Murkowski, Flake, Hatch, McConnell.

    Every single state that these dopes hail from would be perfectly happy with standard run-of-the-mil conservatives.

    Yet these people are not conservative. Their interests lies with their donors, no matter how much you wish to deny it. You say the GOP is not a monolith. Well, if you continually take positions that piss off 85% of your base, then what’s the point of being a Republican?

    If they’re unwilling to fight for their party’s agenda – or at the very least defend their G-d d-mn voters from the media/progs, then why are these people leading the party?

    Bl, Why do you think that out of 15 well credentialed candidates, the GOP voters chose Donald Farking Trump as their nominee? Why do you think that John Boehner was pushed out? Why McConnel has an 18% approval in his own state? Why 4 out of 8 GOP senators up for re-election in 2018 might not survive the primary?

    For decades conservatives have been under constant assault by a sustained, warring enemy on all fronts – mass media, pop culture, education, corporations, social media, hollywood, the bureaucracy. And who stands up for us? Who pushes back when our religious freedoms get violated and our businesses get shut down? Who defends us when we are labeled as bigots and racists? Who demands that our education system stop indoctrinating young minds against us? Who decries double standards when liberals are allowed to engage in activities and speech that we cannot? Who says stop shipping our jobs overseas or giving them to illegal immigrants?

    Ryan doesn’t. Neither does McConnell. Or Romney. Or McCain. Or Rubio.

    That’s the problem you are unwilling to address, BL. The national left is deadly serious about enacting their agenda and are in full, total-war mode against us. They are organized. They have their funding. They have their propaganda networks. They have their shock troops. They have their indoctrination mechanisms. They have entire organizations who’s sole purpose is to dox, discredit, and financially ruin people that oppose their agenda. The left is in total mobilization against us, and they don’t rest just because the elections are over.

    Meanwhile, the right’s ‘leaders’ are not even aware that the war exists. Like fattened officers and generals who have gotten too comfortable in a state of peace, they are aloof about the political reality and cultural upheaval being waged against us.

    BL, how can we win when our generals are not even aware that we are at war in the fist place? How can we find victory when our officers only ever take the path of least resistance?

    You keep saying that I want to dictate what the GOP should be. That’s not true at all. I am merely stating an indisputable truth, which is this;

    The Republican voters no longer have any faith in their party’s leaders. They see them as ineffectual at advancing the party’s agenda. They are demanding leadership change. They are tired of being left to defend for themselves and want leaders who stand up and defend them against what they see as a system inherently rigged against them.

    Whether their assessment is true or not is debatable. The fact that they believe is not.

    Hence, we have Donald Trump.

  118. Bitterlaw says:

    We have Trump because his empty promises and scumbag ways appealed to less than a majority of Republicans. When 60% of the GOP vote is split 16 ways, Trump wins.

  119. Bitterlaw says:

    I can’t wait until True Conservative JC has to defend Trump’s trillion dollar infrastructure gift to unions.

  120. Wes says:

    The GOP base threw away multiple Senate seats in 2010 and 2012 by backing unelectables jackanapeses: O’Donnell, Buck, Angle, Mourdock, and Akin.

    Only when mainline Republicans finally said “Enough is enough!” and beat the next round of clowns–Stockman, Bright, Bosworth, Maness, Bevin (who had a post-election conversion to sanity and benefited greatly from it), Wolf, and Miller among others–did the GOP recapture the Senate and stymy Obama’s regulatory and court stacking.

    JC doesn’t understand Republicans need fewer clowns and more electable pols in power to stop the Dems.

  121. Trump says:

    The moron is triggered early.

    Can you explain how the 16 way split did not help Rubio? Or Jeb?

    Got smashed in own home state?

    Face it, trump is the GOP voters’ choice. All the others had the same policy positions. Voters told all to fu ck off.

    16 percent job approval. Own it.

  122. Trump says:

    16 percent are morons who still hold out hope for the losers.

  123. Trump says:

    Deadenders, in other words.

  124. Bitterlaw says:

    If the 2016 field had only been Trump, Rubio and Walker, Trump would not have been the nominee.

  125. Trump says:

    Bull cra@, as always.

    Unicorn farts is all you have. All the losers started in the same place. Only one stood out.

    Rubio could not even beat out Kasich, let alone Cruz.

    Walke? Ha ha ha….failure to launch.

  126. Trump says:

    It’s the message, stupid.

    Milquetoast, warmed over robotic speeches don’t work.

  127. Trump says:

    30!seconds of Chris Christie.

    Wham!

  128. Trump says:

    If the race had been between trump and Rubio, it would have been over in Iowa.

  129. Trump says:

    The deadender said keep hoping that someone who came in 2-1-1-1 in the first four contests, and 7 out of 11 firsts on Super Tuesday, was going to be denied the nomination.

  130. Trump says:

    No wonder losers like you voted for Medicaid-bible thumper Kasich.

    I would agree, and Mrs. Clinton would be occupying the White House as we speak. Of the 17 Trump is the only one who could take down Clinton. Possibly Christie not for Bridgegate. On the converse all the dems had to do was nominate Biden to get the prize as it’s unlikely Trump would have taken WI, MI and PA in that scenario. It was a perfect storm for Trump….simple as that.

  134. Trump says:

    Rubio was the laziest campaigner ever. He thought making sweet speeches in front of his donors was the ticket to the nomination.

    just as anecdotal evidence of what is going on in rural ny

    the longest serving mayor in ny state, shawn hogan a democrat who is retiring, is looking like he may be replaced by a republican. rural ny is definitely trump country these days, and you still see trump signs up.

  136. Trump says:

    Very simple, actually.

    There is Trump country, there is no Rubio country,

  137. Trump says:

    Well, maybe little Havana.

  138. Phil says:

    Rubio on this Charlottesville thing was very disappointing. To my knowledge he never got around to condemning the violent left. I supported the guy in the primaries. Sadly, he turned out to be just another spineless Republican interested in cultivating favor with the MSM. We have enough of those already.

    Disappointing. Ryan and a few have condemned the left recently only after seeing the polling – a bunch of rubber legged weaklings the whole lot of them.

  139. Trump says:

    Well, Phil, that’s why their job approval is 16 percent. Among Republicans.

    Down from 50 percent in February.

    Agree 100 %. I went from Rubio supporter and never Trumper to 100 % pro Trump .

    The Republicans response to Trumps comments about Charlottesville were absolutely reprehensible. Trumps comments were 100 % correct. Now a few weeks later with all the coverage on the flooding they will all one by one quietly start denouncing violence on both sides as Antifa starts getting more and more violent.

    NYC gives Trump a free pass for proposing an infrastructure plan that would dwarf the New Deal because Congress might not pass it. He ignores the fact that Trump wants to give a trillion dollars to unions.

  146. Phil says:

    Well, Bitter, we can always count on the NYT.

  147. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    When he actually submits something, then let’s talk.

    Congress has ALL of the power in terms of legislation, at least for what is actually in the bill.

    Trump can TALK all he wants, but it is still TALK.

    What don’t you understand about that?

    I have said repeatedly that I don’t like that part, but until he looks to push it, what more is there to say.

  148. NYCmike says:

    ” He ignores the fact that Trump wants to give a trillion dollars to unions.”

    -I would also point out something else: infrastructure spending is similar to military spending, there is an actual return on those $$$ in increased revenues long-term (better roads make it easier for commerce),and also are one-time expenditures (apart from maintenance), as opposed to expansion of social welfare programs that only seek to buy votes, and are a recurring and expanding cost to taxpayers.

  149. NYCmike says:

    On one hand, Bitterlaw claims “We have Trump because his empty promises”.

    On his other hand, Trump’s campaign pledge to pass a YUUGE! $1 trillion infrastructure bill is like a pronouncement from Ramses: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4emcNAf5lY

    It’s ok for Trump to want to throw away 1 trillion on pork because just maybe the GOP congress won’t go along.

    Just like it was ok for Trump to fund Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton for years because “he also gave to Republicans”.

    Poor bastard is always at war with himself, the twisting and convolutions are hilarious.

  185. jason says:

    This is why I am willing to give Trump a pass on some (not all) of his controversial statements. “Authentic” is not a bad word to describe him.

    “It may be surprising to some that he’s authentic, in that the person he is on camera in public is very true to the person he is in private,” Trudeau said of the president during an interview with The Skimm. “So there’s a consistency there that one can work with.”

    Donald Trump campaigned on his infrastructure plan. He didn’t waffle. He didn’t advocate for it to certain groups and downplay it to others. It was one of his platforms. He ran on it and defended it.

    If Trump signs an infrastructure deal, he will be passing a campaign pledge. Even if it’s one I’m weary of, I knew exactly what I voted for.

    This is in stark contrast to the GOPe, who campaign to defund obamacare or crack down on illegal immigration, and then proceed to do neither.

    BTW, Trump is going to end the DACA nonsense. Yet another instance of this ‘non-Republican’ doing something that no other Republican would have the guts to do.

    California legislators are set to vote this week on a bill that could criminalize using the wrong pronoun to refer to a transgender individual.

    The bill, which passed the California state senate in May, has moved into the California state assembly as part of a slew of gender-based “anti-discrimination” laws designed to protect California residents who don’t believe they fall into the gender binary.

    Titled the “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Long-Term Care Facility Residents Bill of Rights,” the new law would allow transgender individuals living in care facilities like nursing homes to use bathrooms in line with their preferred gender (not necessarily their biological gender), and would punish any caregiver who “knowingly” uses the wrong gender pronoun to refer to one of their patients.

He gives tirelessly of his money and most importantly of his time – visits all the children”s hospitals in the medical center once a week year round, uses his foundation to funnel donations to disabled vets, local schools, as well as a wide assortment of Houston charities. The guy is totally unselfish and a humanitarian in every sense of the word. This fund he set up is just the latest example.

    That’s a nice refreshing start for sure!!! Get back to me when they start slashing the tasty pensions and other generous benefit gifts they get a my expense by 50%, and slash 15% of the government work force.

  257. lisab says:

    The gas that just got more expensive was probably already processed, shipped and delivered before Harvey hit Texas. I can understand newly produced gas being more expensive but this seems a bit much for the stuff already at the gas stations.

    ——————————————-
    there are three factors at work

    a.) the market clearing price: if they charge too low, more people will buy more gas and there will be a shortage. if the price is high, some people may decide to stay home more and keep off the roads, leaving the gas for those willing or needing to pay for it.

    b.) regulation: the government is probably putting pressure on the companies to keep profit-taking down. $2.60 may actually be too low a price, but no company wants to get in trouble with the law during a crisis, so they may be losing money.

    c.) accounting practices. if the companies run on a last in first out basis, it means they sell the last product they get in, so in other words whatever their costs are today to make gas, not what it was three weeks ago.

    for example, if you bought your house 10 years ago for $200,000 and today similar houses were worth $300,000, you would not sell it for $200,000 because you could not replace it for that price. you would sell it for $300,000.

    they have slashed many government pensions.

    my father worked for the DOD for years. his pension is fantastabulous. he makes more on his pension than he did on salary. he also gets free health care two different ways. he is a veteran, although he does not use those health care benefits. plus he gets free blue cross blue shield insurance because it was part of his pension plan back in the day — actually it is not quite free, he has to pay some of the cost, but the government pays most of it as if he still worked for the government.

    I wish, in those exchanges, I had not asked gentle, tolerant questions about a hater’s ridiculous allergy to her, or Clinton’s fictional misdeeds and imagined character flaws. More deeply still, I wish I had not reasoned with anyone, patiently countered their ludicrous emotionalism and psychologically disturbed theories. I wish I had said, flatly, “I love her.” As if I had been asked about my mother or daughter. No defensiveness or polemics; not dignifying the crazy allegations with so much as a Snopes link.

    Maybe “I love her” seemed too womany, too sentimental, too un-pragmatic. Not coalition-building, kind of culty. But people say with impunity they love Obama, the state of Israel, their churches, Kurt Cobain. In the end, I wish I’d said it because it’s true.

    priorities people

  336. Bitterlaw says:

    Yes! More points. Tally them up, Jason.

  337. Trump says:

    Give the moron another star.

    He feels so proud of his stupidity.

  338. Trump says:

    Regale us again why gas prices fluctuate.

  339. Bitterlaw says:

    Go cry for the murderous white supremacist driver, Trump.

  340. Trump says:

    Go get fu ck Ed by your fascist buddies.

    You and Romney and McCain.

  341. Bitterlaw says:

    I hope the bastard gets he needle but Virginia won’t do it.

  342. Trump says:

    Who gets the needle? McCain?

  343. Bitterlaw says:

    Time for bed. Trump’s 20 posts using the word “moron” to start in 3…3…1….

  344. Trump says:

    Daily routine, huh?

    Time for bed when I come in, pus$y?

  345. Trump says:

    Lying weasel can’t cope.

  346. Trump says:

    Good riddance. Maybe the stupid idiot will go and read some economics textbook, for a change.

  347. Trump says:

    I thought Muehler was wrapping up a couple months ago. Oops.

  348. Bitterlaw says:

    Afraid of Trump? Zzzzzzzzz. He is a C+ troll at best. Not even close to past trolls like Chekote, Kramer or IP.

    Here on the East coast in the only time zone that matters, we go to bed at night. I think Trump said he lives on the West coast so he was finished posting at 9:27 in his time zone. Big effort. Way to own the night shift.

  349. Bitterlaw says:

    Uh oh. Trump took a shot at Tina. This should be entertaining as Tina goes off on him.

    There are regularly scheduled flights, moron.

  353. Jonesy says:

    Us Rep Marino of Penn to be new Drug Czar

    Oklahoma Rep to head NASA

  354. Trump says:

    Clueless moron, who ties your shoes?

  355. Trump says:

    And 361 is not me.

    Half a brain idiot would get that.

    http://www.philly.com/philly/opinion/commentary/russia-hacking-dnc-server-comey-mueller-hillary-clinton-20170829.html?amphtml=y

    Interesting article. VIPS imdicates the drat hack was internal. This confirms what others have said. Drat refusal to oet somebody look at servers aka the crime scene is troubling.

    Interesting note, VIPS challeneged the cia in the run up of the Itaq War. Said their intelligence was bad.

  357. Tina says:

    Jonesy, where is the link to the 48 percent poll? Hide the knives from the jebots.

  358. Tina says:

    How was this determined? The time stamps contained in the released computer files’ metadata establish that, at 6:45 p.m. July 5, 2016, 1,976 megabytes of data were downloaded from the DNC’s server. This took 87 seconds, which means the transfer rate was 22.7 megabytes per second, a speed, according to VIPS, that “is much faster than what is physically possible with a hack.” Such a speed could be accomplished only by direct connection of a portable storage device to the server. Accordingly, VIPS concludes the DNC data theft was an inside job by someone with physical access to the server.

    From the article. But comedy trusted what crowdsource told him. Much like, he concluded hilary was innocent well before the investigation was completed. Comedy also paid $ for the dossier.

  359. Tina says:

    Will the DNC files released by Guccifer 2.0 be analyzed to determine if they were, as VIPS has concluded, altered to give the false impression that the Russians had hacked the server? If so, will Mueller pursue those responsible for the adulteration? If, as appears likely, the server was not hacked, will Mueller investigate why Hillary Clinton and the DNC claimed it was? Will he investigate whether the DNC files were stolen by someone who had direct physical access to the DNC server? Will he try to determine who at the DNC had a motive to leak the files? Could it be someone who wanted to make public Clinton and the DNC’s underhanded treatment of Sanders?

    This is from that same article. The wtiter misses a huge point. Mueller does not necessarily have to look at these. Sessions can subpooena and indict since these matters have nothing to do with russian interference.

  360. jason says:

    I don’t believe anything Dick Morris OR the MSM says….

    Bitter called a fascist by Soccer Moron?

    More points… sighhh…..

  362. jason says:

    they (a couple)have masters degrees in art and psychology and over $150,000 in school debt. one does not work the other makes $35k a year.

    they have no intention of ever paying the school debt back”

    It shows you that your are never too educated to be a deadbeat.

  363. jason says:

    “one does not work”

    Why bother?

    371. Tina, it over at Red racing horses in the comment section

  366. Jonesy says:

    Posner of the 7th circuit in Chicago, is retiring.

    Reagan appointee who veered to the left lately. Trump will get to pick another Appellate Judge.

  367. Bitterlaw says:

    Jason – I almost feel guilty running up the score with Trump Guru’s points. Almost.

  368. Tina says:

    Jonesy, thanks, found it at breitbart and posted it a few posts above.

  369. Wes says:

    Oh, no. Melania wears heels. Meanwhile, unlike GWB, Trump is getting out in front of this hurricane recovery.

    The Dems and media must be apoplectic now, knowing they won’t bd able to use all their prewritten Katrina 2.0 headlines.

  370. jason says:

    Here it is September.

    Life still sucks big time.”

    Walt has survived hundreds of Septembers, so this one too will pass.

  371. Wes says:

    “Hey, since we can’t say Trump is an incompetent idiot like that moron who was President in 2005, let’s highlight how the First Lady wears high heels. That should really turn the people against Trump, right? How can we possibly lose with the stiletto-gate narrative?”

  372. jason says:

    Jason – I almost feel guilty running up the score with Trump Guru’s points. Almost”

    Well, I haven’t been around much so I almost don’t feel bad. Almost.

  373. jason says:

    Remember all the money Michelle Obama wasted on her countless junkets, no problem there. It’s the heels…

  374. Wes says:

    Hundreds? Don’t you mean millions? Walt’s the only still-living being ever to have seen a battle between an Allosaurus and a Stegosaurus.

    You and Romney and McCain.”

    Bitter, Romney and McCain are fascists?

    I love this place, you always learn something new.

    Of course, you also get confirmation of things you already knew, like that Soccer Moron is a complete idiot.

    Dang Wes, I wsa trying to be polite, you don’t comment on people’s true ages (or in Walt’s case, eras).

  378. Wes says:

    Has Walt hit the eon mark in his birthdays yet? If not, he’s pretty damn close.

  379. jason says:

    I hear when the found some triceratops bones at a Denver construction site last week Walt finally had some closure on his long lost pet.

  380. Bitterlaw says:

    Hundreds? Don’t you mean millions? Walt’s the only still-living being ever to have seen a battle between an Allosaurus and a Stegosaurus.

    Walt would have made a fortune betting on the stegosaurus but there were no other humans to bet.

    ——————————-

    it would mess up her welfare

  382. lisab says:

    although they pledged to get officially married once gay people were allowed to get married

    being married is not helpful when getting welfare, so she as a single mom gets welfare while he works a job

  383. lisab says:

    strangely they are completely in favor of open borders …

    i guess so that illegals can do the jobs they won’t?

  384. Wes says:

    Just to be a C blocker…

  385. lisab says:

    the man also said to me recently that the usa, “has NEVER been so racist as it is now under trump”

    i could not take it at that point — usually i just pretend to have the same views because of my job —

    and i pointed out that the usa used to have slavery and segregation … which kind of caught him by surprise … and then he went off on how we should all move out of the cities and grow our own food …

  386. Bitterlaw says:

    Trump is not here this very minute. P*ssy moron idiot dope.

  387. lisab says:

    after listening to both the dems and never trumpers for the last year+

    i think that the real reason they are against trump is not because of policy

    it was summed up best i think by hillary, they think trump supporters are simply a basket of deplorables

    or when john adams was beaten by andrew jackson and the uneducated mob took over the whitehouse

  388. lisab says:

    in short, i think the great majority of those who oppose trump just think they are better people than trump or his supporters

  389. lisab says:

    i think that is a major reason md fell apart

    he just could not deal with the fact trump is more successful

  390. lisab says:

    the never trumpers are more upset melania trump wore heels when getting on a plane to texas

    than they were at mccain for not even slightly modifying obamacare

    and just beside themselves that he pardoned an 80 year old sheriff but really did not care at all that most of the major players in hillarygate got immunity without giving any evidence

  391. lisab says:

    as a reminder

    chuck e cheese tokens cannot be used to pay library fines you stupid deplorables

  392. Walt says:

    http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/01/public-school-teachers-behind-violent-antifa-group/

    These a$$hats need to fired ASAP.

    (I hope lisab does not come to the defense of these idiots)

  393. Trump says:

    The useful idiot McCain is spouting off again.

    As part of ending DACA, Trump should revoke this as$’s citizenship and deport him to Panama.

  394. Cash Cow TM says:

    isis has claimed responsibility for hurricane Harvey devastation in TX.

    they apologized that nobody was beheaded and the winds did not scream “allah akkbar”…
    (bastards…)

  395. lisab says:

    walt,

    if they committed violence they should be arrested and fired

    but if they are just protesting, that is their right

    and what tenure is for

  396. Cash Cow TM says:

    Finally got Walt cheered up a tad.

    Shepherd University vs Notre Dame football game final score in season opener.

    Shepherd wins 54-49!

  397. Walt says:

    Yeah…

    Shepherd won.
    Good.

    Whoop whoop.

    Life still sucks bigly.

    Temple student murdered. Beautiful life snuffed out by a scumbag. I wish Pennsylvania actually used the death penalty on the books.

  399. Phil says:

    If only the tragic murder had taken place in Texas. We could take care of that in short order. Horrible crime.

    I ate lunch at a restraunt here in Huntsville today with a window view of the prison building where death row inmates get the needle.

  403. Wes says:

    Where do I sign up to be State Executioner, Bitter? I have a few special techniques I’d like to try out on convicted murderers to serve as a deterrant for others contemplsting that particular heinous crime.

  404. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes – There would have be a lottery to pick the State Executioner in this case. Thousands of Temple parents and students would sign up.

    I texted my former player to see how she is doing. She said she feels safe on campus. She never walks alone and carries pepper spray. She has clearly thought about safety and said she never wears sandals or flip flops on campus in case she needs to run. Her law enforcement dad also taught her how to take down a bigger assailant. I still worry about her.
