    AMERICA FIRST: Trump Imposes 30% Tariff on Imported Solar Products and Washing Machines.

    President Donald Trump imposed steep tariffs on imported solar cells on Monday in response to a trade case brought by U.S. solar manufacturers charging that cheap imports, particularly from China, were harming domestic solar companies.

    Can someone let Dave Wissing know polls for 2020 are meaningless. I know Dave is a big neverTrumper guy but, I’m guessing he will be very distraught in 2020 when Trump gets re-elected

  3. Hugh says:

    The clock is really ticking on the fbi and doj. Dems got way ahead of their skis on several fronts.

  4. Chicon says:

    “Incredible” is right…..

  5. BRENT says:

    similar to polls showing queen hillary ahead with 97% chance of winning

    TRUMP WILL DESTROY ALL OF THESE CANDIDATE,ESPECIALLY OPRAH WITH A CLOSET FULL OF SKELETONS

  6. Chicon says:

    Maybe this poll will bring back the trolls….

  7. Paul says:

    Hugh: Or do you mean the indictment of Trump in the Muehler case??

  8. Paul says:

    Biden/Kasich 2020

  9. Hugh says:

    No. I suspect nothing will happen to trump but I’ve been wrong before. I do see some well positioned people getting in very hot water at doj and fbi. That seems to be the direction of all this. The only reason Flynn took a plea was to keep team mueller from harassing his son.

  10. Chicon says:

    It was nice of Mueller to load up the team with people with serious personal grievances against the target. Always good to give the potential targets an extra defense for free.

    Robbie doubts this, but forgets the Mark Furman example.

  11. Mr.Vito says:

    If it is true that Democrats caved because they were losing voters on DACA, it is imperative that the GOP holds its ground. There is no reason not to do so.

    They should stick with their three demands on border security, chain migration, visa lottery. Schumer can compromise or threaten a losing shutdown again.

    The GOP loses if the Senate agrees to a bad deal and puts the onus on the house.

  12. Chicon says:

    Vito, I suspect continuing to show a spine (I don’t mean refusing compromise) will cause support among Republicans to rise in the CGB polls.

  13. Paul says:

    I can’t see the Dems giving much on Family migration (ie chain). Expect another shutdown, if the GOP are intrenched on that one.

  14. NYCmike says:

    “The GOP loses if the Senate agrees to a bad deal and puts the onus on the house.”

    “Vito, I suspect continuing to show a spine (I don’t mean refusing compromise) will cause support among Republicans to rise in the CGB polls.”

    -AMEN!

    I thought it would have been Rudy 10 years ago, but another NYC personality is giving the Republicans a good dose of what it takes to make it in NY, and the world!

  15. NYCmike says:

    Paul says:
    January 23, 2018 at 1:31 pm

    I can’t see the Dems giving much on Family migration (ie chain). Expect another shutdown, if the GOP are intrenched on that one.

    -GREAT! The country may finally have a real debate about immigration issues, and hopefully the Democrats will NOT have RINO squishes (on this issue) out in front to shelter them from the voters.

  16. Paul says:

    NYCmike: What is wrong with the family migration policy right now?

  17. Chicon says:

    Paul, polls suggest big majorities want DACA to stay; and chain and visa to go. And no deal without the wall equivalent. Plenty of room to manoeuvre within the topics, but that’s gonna be the deal or Trump walks.

  18. NYCmike says:

    Let’s compare the Republican and the Democrat/Paul position:

    Republicans compromise and allow DACA (“the Dreamers”) to stay.

    Democrats compromise on……NOTHING.?!?

    OOPS……Hillary LOST!

    Better try something different, Chuck Schumer!

  19. Paul says:

    I thought the GOP and Trump already wanted the dreamers to stay. So why do they need to get more?

    Trump will get his wall. Isn’t that something?

  20. NYCmike says:

    What is wrong with it? Among other things, it is not equitable to current citizens, it is not fair to other immigrants trying to get in but who do not have any relations in country, and the definition of who should be part of “family reunification” is much too wide.

  21. Paul says:

    NYCmike: You didn’t answer my question?

  22. Paul says:

    However, wouldn’t you be in favor of some family immigration? What if you fell in love with a Brit and got married. Wouldn’t you want a process so that your spouse could eventually be a legal resident?

  23. NYCmike says:

    “Trump will get his wall. Isn’t that something?”

    -Until there are appropriation$$$$$ for a wall, the talk means NOTHING.

    And, in regards to allowing millions of “dreamers” to stay, NO, It Is NOT “SOMETHING”. It does NOTHING in regards to changing the idea that people should continue to sneak in, because empathetic (naive) Americans will allow those actions to continue unabated.

  24. NYCmike says:

    “I thought the GOP and Trump already wanted the dreamers to stay. So why do they need to get more?”

    -It would be wonderful if the “dreamers” could stay, and along with that we could correct the policy of chain migration that Ted Kennedy helped legislate back in 1965.

    If Democrats are unable to compromise at all, then the Executive Branch MUST carry out the law…..after all, we are a Republic, NOT a dictatorship.

  25. Paul says:

    I know currently, there is greater time frames for certain family members. A friend of ours who became a citizen and decided to start the process to have his adult child become a resident. That process was 9 years for an adult child. I think minor children are less time. And I assume spouses are much less time.

  26. Paul says:

    I do think immigrants who have a family sponsor (either a spouse or other family member who is a US citizen) are more likely to have financial and moral support to succeed in the US. So, yes, I think it is good to prioritize those.

  27. Paul says:

    The other program that is so ridiculed is the Diversity Lottery program. But that program is designed specifically to encourage immigration from countries like Albania where we may not have very few immigrants over some place like Mexico. On its own merits, I don’t see why that program is bad.

  28. NYCmike says:

    “However, wouldn’t you be in favor of some family immigration? What if you fell in love with a Brit and got married. Wouldn’t you want a process so that your spouse could eventually be a legal resident?”

    -I am sorry, but where is this process being abolished?

  29. Paul says:

    It’s called “chain migration” according to your boys in the House.

  30. Paul says:

    And what if you were a doctor from another country that became a US resident to work at a hospital and then became a citizen as you got older, would you want a process to be able to have your grown children become residents? Currently that process is about 9 years. BUT there is a process. You are wanting to strip away that process.

  31. hugh says:

    There will never be a wall if it is not part of the daca deal. And I mean most of the money appropriated now. Fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me.

  32. phoenixrisen says:

    These polls amuse me. Just don’t see any of these candidates beating Trump in 2020

  33. hugh says:

    I am pretty sure trump made it fairly clear that children would be okay through a reasonable process. However, parents cousins siblings etc has to stop or you have one immigrant who then invites all his siblings who invite their spouses and children then the spouses’ parents then the spouses siblings etc etc etc.

  34. hugh says:

    btw. I have immigrant friends and it is exactly what happens.

  35. Chicon says:

    31 – these questions identify the divide on the issue. To you the relevant question is “wouldn’t YOU want….”. To me the relevant question is “is it good for the COUNTRY for x’s family members to enter”.

  36. Paul says:

    And Chicon. I’d answer overwhelmingly, YES! I do want immigrants who have a family for financial and moral support.

  37. Chicon says:

    We disagree, Paul. The issue ain’t you wife or kids. It’s parents, grandparents, cousins, etc. Unless they’re beneficial to the country, they stay out.

  38. Paul says:

    Chicon: Cousins and Grandparents have NEVER been a part of it. The issue is children (over 18) which the GOP wants to call “extended family ” in their bill. Do your kids become extended family once they reach 18, CHICON?

  39. Paul says:

    Trump is a product of chain migration on both his fathers and mothers side. Some may say it worked out for him.

  40. Paul says:

    Trumps grandfather came to live with his sister in the 1890s. And Trumps mom came as an adult to live with her sister.

    That is sibling chain migration which the GOP wants to call “extended family” chain migration.

  41. Paul says:

    And Chicon : It has been shown that family migration helps to grow the economy. It has certainly grown the economy the city which I live.

  42. NYCmike says:

    Paul,

    Maybe if you would adopt a no-welfare type of policy, strictly enforced, where new immigrants must show that they will have room, boarding, education etc taken care of by their sponsors, then we could look at chain migration differently.

    BUT, Democrats NEVER get rid of any government program, unless it is military in nature.

  43. Mr.Vito says:

    The GOP doesn’t have a problem with any of these things as long it is merit based.

    The real question is why the Democrats do not want a merit based system on a case-by-case basis.

    The only thing they say in response is “diversity is our strength”. Of course, diversity is not anyone’s strength without UNITY.

    Even the human body is made stronger through its diversity ONLY because it remains UNIFIED.

    The left has done everything in its power to destroy the culture, beliefs, and symbols that unite America in an attempt to replace it with its own culture, beliefs, and symbols.

    At that point we cease to be the United States of America and become… well… California.

  44. Paul says:

    Mr. Vito,
    It is part of our plan to destroy gentile culture and beliefs 🙂

  45. Mr.Vito says:

    And of course, when you speak with a leftist, they say as Paul does… well, what about this situation… and this one… and this case.

    That is called a merit system evaluated case by case… so join the GOP.

  46. Paul says:

    That is how the current immigration system works, Mr. Vito. It is a situation by situation basis with a very long waiting period (decades).

  47. Paul says:

    And I agree. Maybe merit based system should be more a part of it. However, I think it already is to some degree.

  48. Mr.Vito says:

    45 Jewish conservatives agree with me. Take your Nazi name-calling passive aggressive smiley and shove it up your a$$.

  49. Mr.Vito says:

    As usual, the leftists resort to name calling when the facts fail them.

  50. jason says:

    The woman I helped is going to turn 91 in 3 weeks…..and the woman driving was her YOUNGER Friend…..she was ONLY 88!!!”

    Translation: NYC lined up some dates for the weekend.

  51. DW says:

    I don’t understand this notion that it is a human right that one gets to migrate to the USA together with all their relatives: father, mother, cousins, aunts, uncles, neices, nephews, grandparents, fourth cousin–twice removed, and so forth.

    When I go back to my family history and checked, I found that siblings were split apart, young people left parents to never see them again, because they got on a boat to head to America for a brighter future.

  52. jason says:

    However, wouldn’t you be in favor of some family immigration? What if you fell in love with a Brit and got married. Wouldn’t you want a process so that your spouse could eventually be a legal resident?”

    Spouses are not really chain migration, the chain starts after that.

    “Chain Migration starts with a foreign citizen chosen by our government to be admitted on the basis of what he/she is supposed to offer in our national interest. The Original Immigrant is allowed to bring in his/her nuclear family consisting of a spouse and minor children. After that, the chain begins. Once the Original Immigrant and his/her spouse becomes a U.S. citizen, they can petition for their parents, adult sons/daughters and their spouses and children, and their adult siblings.”

    Even a moron like you should be able to tell the difference.

  53. jason says:

    would you want a process to be able to have your grown children become residents?”

    No.

  54. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    From earlier in the month.

    “President Trump called Mitt Romney on Thursday night and encouraged him to run for Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch’s seat.

    An anonymous source close to the White House confirmed the conversation to the Salt Lake Tribune, saying the call between the sitting president and the former presidential candidate was short and cordial.”

    It would be good to have someone of Romney’s stature defending Republican economic policies in the Senate. McConnell has proven to be a good parliamentarian, but he is not a PR person.

  55. DW says:

    55 – that cannot be. We were told by trolls that Romney would be the Anti-Trump force in the senate.

    James Rybicki Abruptly Quits FBI

    Per fox

  59. jason says:

    I think spouses and minor children should have the right to apply for residency. Parents if they are elderly and can show they need to be cared for by their children.

    Adult children, siblings, cousins, in-laws, etc. should be able to get visas to visit if visas are required from that country, if they meet the visa requirements. They can apply through legal immigration channels, but no preference given.

    And I am hardly an immigration deadender, my title here is “La Raza Pimp”.

  60. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Hey lisab, though you liberal New England leaders were alarmed that Trump was conspiring with Putin? Now you guys are buying gas from Putin. Whats going on? Your also paying three times the price for energy as elsewhere in the country. The joys of Bernie style socialism.

    “New England’s lack of pipeline infrastructure means the region is now reliant on natural gas shipments from an unlikely source — Russia.

    Boston will soon receive a shipment of natural gas from an export terminal operated by Novatek — a company sanctioned by the State Department in 2014. Russian oil and gas shipments, however, aren’t covered by U.S. sanctions.

    “A French-owned tanker is on its way to Boston to deliver a shipment of liquefied natural gas to heat homes in New England. At least some of that gas is from Russia’s Yamal LNG terminal.”

  61. hugh says:

    yep Tina. tick tick tick. the damn is starting to break

  62. jason says:

    Trumps grandfather came to live with his sister in the 1890s. And Trumps mom came as an adult to live with her sister.

    That is sibling chain migration which the GOP wants to call “extended family” chain migration.”

    This is BS. These people most likely would have been let in on their own because at the time the US was encouraging immigration. They weren’t admitted just due to family ties.

    Just because this policy existed over a 100 years ago doesn’t mean it has to exist forever, obviously in 1890 there was a whole continent available for resettlement which is not the situation now.

  63. hugh says:

    btw. I want heads to roll. The FBI and DOJ have nothing on the DOL and SEC when it comes to abuse of power. The problem is they never see a consequence to their abuse. Also while at it lets go get lois lehner

  64. NYCmike says:

    “Just because this policy existed over a 100 years ago doesn’t mean it has to exist forever,….”

    -Hmmmm, somebody’s tune has changed and gotten closer to mine…..AGAIN!

    Imagine that…..a nation looking at the current environment for employment opportunities and adjusting immigration levels down, or up…..Cotton/Perdue would APPROVE!

  65. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    60. “Parents if they are elderly and can show they need to be cared for by their children.”

    Am not being heartless here, but many states provide medical coverage for illegal immigrants, and hospitals will provide emergency medical care.
    Each of these immigrants could cost the taxpayers hundreds of thousands in medical expenses. Is there some way to ensure they have medical coverage in the U.S. before they come in?

  66. DW says:

    Remember back in 2014 I did a bunch of research toward coming up with a formula accurately predicts an incumbent senator’s re-election chances based on job approval, with the caveat that the opponent has to be credible and so forth? Also in the formula was the general bent of the state and ability to outmaneuver even a popular incumbent.

    Here are the expectations based on the morning consult numbers. Of course more polling will be done and averaged as the year unfolds. But here it is:

    MO: Claire McCaskill – 41% Very vulnerable, almost certain to lose providing a credible opponent and no third party mischief. This is an increasingly red state, so providing no Akins this time, should finally be rid of her.

    IN: Joe Donnelly – 44% Nearly as vulnerable as McCaskill given the red bent to the state.

    NV: Dean Heller – 41% Very vulnerable given its a purple state. If the Dems get a decent recruit, this could be a relatively easy flip.

    ND: Heidi Heitkamp – 50% Somewhat vulnerable. If this was a purple state, 50% would easily result in re-election. A solid recruit on the GOP side could win in this red state.

    MT: Jon Tester – 47% Vulnerable. This number is right on the bubble, but considering that Tester has been dropping and this is a red state, the GOP should go all in here to unseat him.

    FL: Bill Nelson – 51% Somewhat safe, given the split nature of the state. GOP could have a decent shot with a strong recruit.

    OH: Sherrod Brown – 46% Vulnerable, right on the bubble. A solid recruit energizing the GOP base to get a solid turnout and Brown is beaten.

    WV: Joe Manchin – 52% Probably safe, but given that WV voted more strongly for Trump than ANY other state, the GOP should make this competitive with the right candidate.

    PA: Bob Casey – 43% Vulnerable, and the GOP should make a strong play to get this seat.

    WI: Tammy Baldwin – 40% Very Vulnerable – But given the purple-blue nature of the state it will still require an outstanding candidate to unseat her.

    VA: Tim Kaine – 45% Somewhat vulnerable. This moron continues to take up space in DC and should be vulnerable, but the GOP would have to get a great recruit and then somehow overcome Northern VA on election night.

    MI: Debbie Stabenow – 44% Possibly vulnerable. This one the GOP should look into to see if its worth the spending as 44% is below the threshold for incumbent safety.

    MN: Amy Klobuchar – 59% Safe.

    States with open seats: AZ, (MN)

  67. jason says:

    -Hmmmm, somebody’s tune has changed and gotten closer to mine…..AGAIN! ”

    Hey, moron, show ONE instance where my position on immigration has changed.

    You are the one who is frequently at war with yourself.

    GFY

  68. jason says:

    But I am glad NYC thinks his position is close to mine on immigration.

    He must be in favor of comprehensive immigration reform that not only includes the dreamers, but most of the 12 million non-felon illegals.

    I thank him for his support.

  69. Mr.Vito says:

    67 Except if you go by this one poll, several republicans are also vulnerable… Wicker, Fischer, and Heller besides Hatch, Flake, and Corker.

  70. jason says:

    I think Corker is not running, but if you mean his seat it will depend a lot on who runs.

  71. jason says:

    It’s very heartening that now NYC thinks Cotton-Perdue is garbage legislation and he agrees with me on ZERO cuts to LEGAL immigration.

  72. jason says:

    I think Wicker and Fisher are safe unless they get primaried by deadenders, they don’t have to be popular to win.

    Heller and Flake’s seat are indeed vulnerable.

  73. jason says:

    NYC now supports the Visa lottery like I do?

    Who knew?

  74. Mr.Vito says:

    “I think Corker is not running”

    the three open seats are vulnerable by virtue of being open

  75. jason says:

    I don’t see Casey as vulnerable mainly because I don’t see a strong challenger.

    I think Nelson in FL is very vulnerable against a good candidate.

    Kaine? I doubt it. Gillespie was the best candidate the GOP had and he lost to a mediocre candidate like Northam. The GOP bench in VA is horrible.

    Frankly I would put most of the resources trying to defeat McCaskill, Tester and Heidkamp and defend Heller.

  76. jason says:

    the three open seats are vulnerable by virtue of being open”

    Ok, but Rs only lose UT and TN if you nominate a COD or Akin.

  77. jason says:

    If NYC admits statutory rape is a crime it really could mean we are beginning to see alike.

    Scary.

  78. Mr.Vito says:

    Right, although the point being made there is, going by that poll, all three retiring incumbents would be vulnerable.

    Three additional GOP Senators would also be vulnerable besides the open seats. DW listed only one republican and only one open GOP seat.

  79. Mr.Vito says:

    “but Rs only lose UT and TN if you nominate a COD or Akin.”

    Or Hatch or Corker according to the analysis presented.

    Separate what I believe myself from what the logic of the analysis says.

  80. Cash Cow TM says:

    Walt said he thinks he knows those two kids–91 and 88 yr old women–that NYCMike was talking about.

    Walt is on cloud nine.

  83. jason says:

    Walt has had centuries to learn bridge and is still struggling?

  84. jason says:

    Walt said he thinks he knows those two kids–91 and 88 yr old women–that NYCMike was talking about.”

    Wow, with that kind of inside information NYC will be sure to get a head start.

  85. Mr.Vito says:

    I thought DW used actual head-to-head numbers before instead of job approval numbers.

  87. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Believe this quote sums up how many of us feel about Trump:

    “As to decorum, who cares about decorum when the boat is sinking? Fix the freaking leak.”

  88. DW says:

    86 – yes…later my formula switches to the head-to-head and the forecast gets more precise. This early stage uses job approval because it’s all we have. The challengers in most of these races are not even for sure yet, so my formula is just measuring potential vulnerability.

  89. Tina says:

  90. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Wow, Howard Kurtz, no conservative, says something that should be a must read for Wobbie.

    “These are not easy words for me to write. I am a lifelong journalist with ink in my veins. And for all my criticism of the media’s errors and excesses, I have always believed in the mission of aggressive reporting and holding politicians accountable […] But the past two years have radicalized me. I am increasingly troubled by how many of my colleagues have decided to abandon any semblance of fairness out of a conviction that they must save the country from Trump.”

    “This is not just a feud or a fight or a battle. It is scorched-earth warfare in which only one side can achieve victory. To a stunning degree, the press is falling into the president’s trap. The country’s top news organizations have targeted Trump with an unprecedented barrage of negative stories, with some no longer making much attempt to hide their contempt. Some stories are legitimate, some are not, and others are generated by the president’s own falsehoods and exaggerations. But the mainstream media, subconsciously at first, has lurched into the opposition camp and is appealing to an anti-Trump base of viewers and readers, failing to grasp how deeply it is distrusted by a wide swath of the country.”

    The Mets were just better, imo. What are you supposed to do about young Tom Seaver & Koosman & all the rest?

    Great disasters in a nutshell:

    1) Port Chicago. WWII Navy ammo loading base near San Francisco. Navy had contests to see who could load the most high explosive the fastest! Torpedo exploded when a wench slipped. One ship was blown a mile inland, I think. If it had been the result of enemy action (it was not), it would’ve been one of Japan’s greatest victories!

    2) Texas City 1947 ( I think). French tanker loaded with ammonium nitrate caught fire. Crew shut all the hatches tight & abandoned ship. The burning hulk was kind of like a giant Rival Crockpot pressure cooker!

  127. Chicon says:

    128 – agree on the Mets. It is often viewed as a Cub collapse, and they did play pretty bad. But the Mets went nuts the last couple months and earned it.

    “When people like Jim Comey start lawyering up, and Rybicki leaves just before being called to testify, you can be assured that it ain’t looking good for the #Obamagate participants.”

    A friend of former FBI director James Comey who leaked sensitive FBI memos to The New York Times in the wake of Comey’s firing in 2017 now claims to be Comey’s personal attorney. Daniel Richman, a law professor at Columbia University, told The Federalist via phone on Tuesday afternoon that he was now personally representing Comey.
    The revelation comes in the wake of news that Comey was interviewed by the special counsel’s office last year. According to The New York Times, the line of questioning from the office of special counsel Robert Mueller focused on memos that Comey wrote and later leaked after he was fired from his job by President Donald Trump. A review of FBI policies governing the handling of sensitive government documents suggests Comey violated FBI policy by leaking the memos, which were produced on government time, using government equipment, and directly related to his official government responsibilities, according to Comey’s own testimony before Congress.

    Regarding the poll headlining this thread:

    1) Oprah won’t run.

    2) Sanders would be exceptionally vulnerable because of his extreme leftist ideology but would have a hard time staking out his base from last year’s primaries because Trump has assiduously courted the populists Sanders would need to win.

    3) Biden saw his time come and go in 2016.

    Trump can lose, but none of these three would be an ideal opponent for him. His own Governor, Andrew Cuomo, would likely be Trump’s most formidable opponent.

    “Great Moments in Polling History”
    –Episode 39

    In this episode, lets go to the 2016 US Senate race in Wisconsin, a race featuring incumbent Republican Ron Johnson challenged by the man he defeated for the seat six years prior, Russ Feingold.

    Feingold led every poll but one throughout the entire campaign. That one exception was a Loras College poll in early October showing Johnson up 5 points. However, other polls taken at the time showed double-digit leads for Feingold rendering the Loras poll an outlier.

    The GOP pretty much abandoned Johnson to his fate until they put late money into the race and the polls tightened slightly.

    Even so, no poll in the last month of the election showed Johnson ahead. The final Loras poll was Feingold +2. Marquette was the closest thing to accurate at Feingold +1. Others were much further off. Emerson, Feingold +5; Monmouth, +8; St. Norbert, +12; Gravis +12. The final PPP-D poll was in June, showing Feingold +13.

    When election day arrived, it was presumed this was one of the four seats the Democrats would flip to give the tiebreaker to Vice-President Kaine. Instead Johnson passed the 50% threshold getting 50.2% to Feingold’s 46.8, a margin of 3.4.

    This program was brought to you by Paladin/CFP, reminding you to stay away from sharp objects when you see hard to believe, narrative-changing polls.

  224. mnw says:

    DW

    Yeah the WI thing is awful. I guess they all missed the Trump turnout surge.

  225. TrumpIsPeteWilson says:

    You’re so f*cking stupid, I could pick up a homeless guy on the street and probably have him replace you at whatever job you work at.

    Get a clue about how statistics works by reading a book before you open your dumb mouth redneck.

    https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/pollster-ratings/

    Washington Post has an A+ ranking. You know why? Their polling MATCHES the election results more closely than other pollsters historically across all elections they’ve polled.

    You are so unbelievably f*cking stupid.

  230. TrumpIsPeteWilson says:

    TIPW brings his version of the “A” game today. At least it brings a good laugh.

  232. Mr.Vito says:

    538 only uses polls conducted the three weeks prior to an election to determine its ratings…

    All of those pollsters are highly rated…

    the results are bimodel with the peaks outside the margin of error of the others…

  235. DW says:

    244 – what can one say?…its been a rough week for the left. Seeing their hero, Chuck U. Schumer cave in like that.

  236. Redmen4ever says:

    During 2016, I tracked live-caller polls versus “anonymous” polls, nationwide and in battleground states. From time to time, the liver-caller polls deviated significantly from the others. This mostly corresponded to when the media was being particularly harsh on Trump.

    During the final week of the campaign, a big part of Trump’s surge in the polls was the narrowing of the live caller poll gap. (Another big part was the shift of Gary Johnson voters to Trump net of the shift of Stein voters to Clinton.) Some people caught on to the late shifts, and the possibility that Trump could actually win. Some people were caught completely dumbfounded.

    Now, we are again see a live caller poll gap. We are a long way from election day, and voter sentiment can change for any number of reasons. But, I think this gap will go away as we approach the election and poll-taking organization look to clean up their record.

    So, enjoy the double-digit lead for the Democrats in the “high quality” live-caller Congressional General Poll while you can. Then, be ready with Russia Conspiracy or whatever afterwords, if it turns out the GOP retains control.

    Interesting.

    Supposedly the FBI has not seen the memo so how do they disagree with it?

    The link about Trump having a better first year than Reagan……that should have been a foregone conclusion, since Trump had the luxury of a Republican-controlled Congress.

    The surprise is NOT that Trump did more than Reagan.

    The surprise (for some, not I) is that Trump (and the administration) was the more conservative body as compared to Congress and the so-called “conservative Republican” leadership.

  320. DW says:

    My fear in regards to President-Elect Trump was that he would immediately morph into a Pelosi-Schumer lap-dog. I recall right after he was elected expressing my hope that he would depend on Pence for what do to actually do as president.

    Whoever he is depending on, whether his own thinking or that of others, I am thrilled to have been wrong in my fears. I still find him personally offensive but I won’t argue with the results.

  321. NYCmike says:

    DW,

    I had that fear as well, but I thought Congress (as well as Pence, Sessions, Carson, etc) would be leading the charge holding a conservative banner.

    346 – Dem candidate platform position this fall:

    “I am ___ ___ (D) and I came to this town hall meeting today to ask for your vote. We have to stop Republicans who put thousands of your hard-earned dollars back into your pockets. That money you worked hard to get really belongs to us big government spenders, not you, and I will work hard stop Republicans from giving back to you even more of the money we rightfully stole from you so we could blow it on worthless government projects.

    I know you are all horrified at the low tax rates you are suffering, and are desperate to get more of your money back in our hands so we can waste it and flush it down s***holes all around the world.

    So I ask for your commitment today that you will tell your friends and neighbors to come out and vote for me, so they too can end their low-tax suffering and the horrible effect it has had in their lives to have more spendable income.

    I have ‘Jim’ here with us today. Jim is a small business owner who has been devastated by the GOP tax disaster. Jim’s business now only has to pay a fraction of the taxes it used to pay, and so now Jim is suffering terribly with the trauma of having to make a difficult decision of whether to expand his business or give out huge bonuses to his employees, or both. Complicating Jim’s situation is the fact that cumbersome regulations have also been dropped, leaving him with time on his hands that he is not used to having. University training did not prepare him for having to handle this sort of freedom. Small business owners like Jim should NOT have to be faced with such difficult decisions!! [camera pans to Jim who sits there with a grimace on his face.]

    I know you all share the same rage that I have, at the very idea that you should be trusted with your own money, as though you are smarter than us in how your money should be spent. So lets get this done! Lets roll back all the freedoms you gained since Trump was elected president. Lets get this done!

    Thank you for your vote!

More than 1,000 aircraft have landed at a quartet of regional airports near Davos at an average daily rate of 218, according to Air Charter Service, which supplies these luxury jets to elite travelers on six continents.

    GOP picks up MO, MT, IN, loses NV. I think Heller has a tough haul. Hold AZ.

    If the GOP has strong candidates in ND, MI, and FL, I think they can pick any of those seats off.

    I see the Dems picking up NV while holding VA, MN, WV. Pennsylvania I am torn on. Need feedback from Bitterlaw on what he sees the chances are regarding any GOP candidate that takes on Casey though I would have to favor the Dems in that seat, especially the negative PR that Meehan’s fling is generating for the GOP in that state. I am thinking a +2 to +5 range gain for the GOP in the Senate. This could change though if Generic Congressional polls show continued improvement for the GOP, especially when the tax cuts really kick in.

    The White House Thursday released an immigration plan that would offer a path to citizenship for approximately 1.8 million of the so-called “Dreamers,” along with a $25 billion investment in border security — including for President Trump’s long-promised wall…

    The nonpartisan Migration Policy Institute said it believes the largest share of the White House’s 1.8 million people who’d be eligible for citizenship — 1.3 million — are people who currently meet all of DACA’s eligibility requirements. These include years in the U.S., their ages now and when they entered this country, and whether they have a high school or equivalent education.

    Another 400,000 are people who’d be eligible for DACA protection but for their education. And 100,000 more are people who are under age 15 –the minimum age allowed for most people requesting protection under the program.

    Legal status for the recipients would be revocable for criminal behavior and national security threats, the officials said, and eventual citizenship would require still-unspecified work and education requirements — and a finding that the immigrants are of “good moral character.”

    Trump’s plan would restrict new family-based immigration to spouses and minor children, doing away with provisions allowing parents, adult siblings and others to enter the country. The officials said it would only end new applications for visas, allowing those already in the pipeline to be processed.

    It would also end the diversity visa lottery program, which drew Trump’s attention after the New York City truck attack last year, redirecting the allotment annually to bringing down the existing backlog in visa applications.”

  394. phoenixrisen says:

    411 — Don’t see how that would work with Dems gutting the reforms as that would take 60 votes after the legislation passed. My take is the wall needs to be built first while the 10-12 year clock ticks on people wanting citizenship. The GOP cannot blunder like they did in 1986 giving amnesty to millions based on Democrats promises to secure later. Immigration is like health care, incredibly difficult issue to legislate. We all know why the Democrats want clean amnesty. Millions of new dependent voters on the governemnt that will vote for them or continue to use this as a racial cudgel to beat over the GOP’s heads. Remember one immigration activist who stated Democrats don’t really want a solution to immigration. They want immigration as a political weapon to use indefinitely against the GOP. If immigration is solved, that is an awfully big weapon they can no longer use in their platform. Another deft political move by Trump as now he is out front on immigration with the Dems following seizing the initiative once again. Even worse for Democrats, if Trump gets a deal done, he’ll do similarly what Lyndon Johnson did with the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Could put an awful lot of new Hispanic voters in the GOP camp. The Dems are in a no win situation. Do a deal and they lose Hispanics. Obstruct a deal and they lose Hispanics. Just my take.

    Voter registration in California:

    Democrat 44.8%
    Republican 25.9%
    No Party 24.5%
    Other 4.9%

    Keep in mind the Republican Party in California is controlled by a bunch of crony capitalists who in many ways can be as bad as the Democrats.

    There still is an old guard of traditional Democrats who often support Republican candidates. Candidates are no longer listed by party on the ballot, and there is a run-off between the top two in primaries. This may end up being very beneficial. A lot of us prefer being non-party in our registration.

  401. janz says:

    SDC, I agree that more and more Californians decline to state a party preference. However, by doing so they disqualify themselves from voting for a R or D in the primary. As there are more registered Ds the probability of 2 Ds getting the top two slots of popular vote is built into the election.

    Hopefully, those who still believe in at least having a 2 party competition in the GE will change their registration to R for the primary.

    413. “If immigration is solved, that is an awfully big weapon they can no longer use in their platform. Another deft political move by Trump as now he is out front on immigration with the Dems following seizing the initiative once again.”

    Totally agree. There is a huge amount of immigrants who work hard, and do not like the Democratic confiscatory state. A conservative friend of mine, who immigrated from Nigeria, and now makes a high income, said to me he could not vote for the Democratic Party because its policies were like those that destroyed his homeland.

    Where I am at, Asians vote Republican by margins similar to Anglos, and can see a drift towards conservatism among Latinos in the Central Valley as well in the future.

  403. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Hi Janz, here is the open primary procedure:

    “The Top Two Candidates Open Primary Act, which took effect January 1, 2011, requires that all candidates for a voter-nominated office be listed on the same ballot. Previously known as partisan offices, voter-nominated offices are state legislative offices, U.S. congressional offices, and state constitutional offices. Only the two candidates receiving the most votes—regardless of party preference—move on to the general election regardless of vote totals.”

    There are still some offices, like President and some local officials, that have party ballots. A non-party voter can obtain a Democratic ballot, but no a Republican ballot, unless they are registered a Republican.

    This is so sad. Trump offers a reasonable compromise, which includes securing our borders. Apparently Democrats want totally open borders, with no restrictions. Any terrorist can just stroll across at will.

    “WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House unveiled a proposal Thursday that provides a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million young immigrants living in the country illegally, in exchange for new restrictions on legal immigration and $25 billion in border security. The plan was applauded by some in Congress, but blasted by conservative activists as “amnesty” and slammed by a slew of Democrats, who accused President Donald Trump of holding “Dreamers” hostage to his hard-line immigration agenda.

    Senior White House officials cast the plan as a centrist compromise that could win support from both parties and enough votes to pass the Senate. But it comes with a long list of concessions that many Democrats, and also conservative Republicans, especially in the House, may find impossible to swallow.”

    The first and most important reason you should eat meat is because that is the way you were created biologically. Human beings are meat eaters by nature and our bodies require the nourishment that meat provides.

    Not eating meat leads to Candida overgrowth.

    Not eating meat leads to sugar addiction, carbohydrate addiction, compulsive overeating, alcoholism and addiction in general.

    Meat builds stronger muscles.

    Meat keeps blood sugar stable and halts cravings for carbohydrates.

    Meat and its by-products are the only complete sources of protein available to us. All other forms of protein are incomplete and don’t provide us with all the essential amino acids the body and mind need to function adequately.

    Not eating meat leads to neurotransmitter imbalances that result in a variety of mental and physical health conditions like anxiety, depression and hyperactivity.

    Meat boosts the immune system and antibodies that protect you from infections

    Meat is a supreme source of iron and B12

    Meat protein gives you long-lasting energy, unlike carbohydrates which gives you a high and then a crash.

    Salmon and organic, free-range, grass-fed beef, as well as buffalo are good sources of balanced Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio.

    Organic grass-fed beef and buffalo are also good sources of CLA, conjugated linolic acid, a substance that has antioxidant and anti-tumor properties and is attributed to reducing abdominal fat, glucose uptake and changes in serum total lipids.

    Below are the reasons. I am uncomfortable around vegans
    ——————————

    vegetarian, not vegan.

    vegan is not a natural state of man. if people were all strictly vegans, they would die. vitamin b12 is not produced by plants.

    i briefly tried veganism in college, because my roomate was one, but at the time my college had no support for vegans, so the cafeteria food was not very good for us. i dropped to under 85 pounds and my doctor yelled at me.

    oh … and this bitch got on the wrong side of a barbed wire fence when i was there … her calf was on the other side. did she go back through the hole in the fence? NOOOOOOOOOOOO … she wanted her calf to go through the fence …

    my hubby and his cousin had to take down the fence with their bare hands … while mama cow was not helping by calling her baby …

    i have never heard my hubby say such colourful words as on that day … i retreated to the house … and if you knew how much i liked my mil, you would know that was a big deal

    cows are mean

If you let it happen, I promise I will go to church on Sunday…and I will even stop [–unmentionable–], and will go so far as to stop it for a whole week.”

    In-N-Out is infamous for its secret menu, but perhaps the fast-food chain’s most shocking secret is the six-figure salaries its managers are pulling down. The California Sun reports managers at In-N-Out make more than $160,000 a year on average. That’s more than the average software engineer, lawyer, or architect working in California makes and approximately triple what the average restaurant manager makes. “In-N-Out is just eons above everybody else,” says Saru Jayaraman, head of the Food Labor Research Center at UC Berkeley. “On wages and benefits, they really are the best large chain.”

    .

    In-N-Out workers start at $13 an hour, and a review of the company on Glassdoor says “you can move up fairly quickly.” In fact, In-N-Out employees can get promoted to manager—and that six-figure salary—without a college degree. KTVU reports In-N-Out managers are responsible for hiring, training, service, quality, work environment, and more at a single location. Glassdoor recently ranked In-N-Out as the fourth best place to work in the US—ahead of even Google—despite employees warning that “the job itself can get a little bit stressful at times.” More than 90% of former employees would recommend working at In-N-Out to a friend, and In-N-Out’s Lynsi Snyder is the 36th highest rated CEO per Glassdoor stats, which list her as having a 94% employee approval rating.

  445. DW says:

    I wonder if Joe Kennedy will mention Chappaquiddick in his response?

  446. DW says:

    Always willing to help, I have written the SOTU response speech for Rep. Joe Kennedy (D):

    “Good evening, I am Democrat Representative Joe Kennedy, member of the greatest political family dynasty ever. My grandfather and great uncle were both assassinated in office, and I had another great uncle who most of you know as the great senator from Massachusetts, Ted Kennedy, who would have also become president had he not volunteered to drive Mary Jo back to the ferry boat.

    These are challenging times for all who worship gods like me in the federal government–those loyal Americans who only want to wake up each day and know that the all-wise federal government has taken all our money and will decide how to spend it. We have just heard from Mr. Trump, who along with Republicans put thousands of your hard-earned dollars back into your pockets. That money you worked hard to get really belongs to us big government spenders, not you, and we must work hard to stop Republicans from giving back to you even more of the money we have rightfully stolen.

    I know you are all horrified at the low tax rates you are suffering, and are desperate to get more of your money back in our hands so we can waste it and flush it down s***holes all around the world.

    So I ask for your commitment today that you will tell your friends and neighbors to vote for Democrats this fall, so they too can end their low-tax suffering and the horrible effect it has had in their lives to have more spendable income.

    I recently spoke to wonderful American named Jim. Jim is a small business owner who has been devastated by the GOP tax disaster. Jim’s business now only has to pay a fraction of the taxes it used to pay, and so now Jim is suffering terribly with the trauma of having to make a difficult decision of whether to expand his business or give out huge bonuses to his employees, or both. Complicating Jim’s situation is the fact that cumbersome regulations have also been dropped, leaving him with time on his hands that he is not used to having. State University training did not prepare him for having to handle this sort of freedom. Small business owners like Jim should NOT have to be faced with such difficult decisions!!

    I know you all share the same rage that I have, at the very idea that you should be trusted with your own money, as though you are smarter than us in how your money should be spent. So lets get this done! Lets roll back all the freedoms you gained since Trump was elected president. Lets honor the memory of my great family and MAKE GOVERNMENT GREAT AGAIN!

    Thank you, good night, and God bless bloated government!”

    “A Wall Street Journal analysis of a controversial Obama-era fiduciary rule at the Labor Department found 40 percent of those listed as public commenters and contacted by the newspaper telling the WSJ that they never made those comments. Reporter James Grimaldi told NPR that “most of these were negative comments against the rule… kind of get-out-of-my-backyard, grumpy old men comments, frankly.”
    “Our investigation found as many as 8,000 people who said this is not my comment put online. I think maybe they may see that it’s a bigger problem than they ever thought it was,” Grimaldi said. “…It may be weaponizing of Astroturf lobbying. It’s creating bots to do it.”
    “The practice of manipulating agency actions by flooding rulemaking dockets with fake comments is far more widespread than it appeared when you were initially asked to investigate. Some Americans’ voices are being co-opted in what appears to be a systemic attempt to corrupt federal policy-making,” the House Dems wrote to Sessions and Wray. “Immediate action is needed in order to restore public trust in the federal rulemaking process.

    I haven’t been keeping tabs on who the Republicans have to challenge Tester in MT. I’m assuming not much of a candidate given Tester’s voting over the last year. He votes with the most leftist blue state senate Democrats on every vote – not like you would expect a red state Democratic incumbent to vote. Montana Republicans must not have anyone to run against him which I find ridiculous.

    Phil, Matt Rosendale, Montana Commissioner of Insurance, is the frontrunning GOP candidate against Tester. Senate Leadership Fund–Mitch McConnell’s PAC–is currently boosting Rosendale while running ads highlighting Tester’s leftist votes, especially on the shutdown, which Tester weakly defended.

  478. Wes says:

    Seriously though, I thought I had lung or throat cancer when I was in my 20s and living in NJ. I grew up in a house of smokers and lived by factories spewing smoke and horrific chemical smells in the wonderful city of Newark as a child so I just assumed I developed some heinous cancer like many others in my family. As it turns out though, I had severe sinus and throat allergies and so I had nasal polyps surgery and a corrected septum. Long story short, I move out of NJ to San Francisco so I could express myself FABULOUSLY without judgment and where the air was fresh and clean and never had the coughing up blood thing again.

    The moral of the story is Bitter needs to move to San Francisco. Heeeeey. Hey Hey Hey.

    Why Scientests Finding Water On Mars Is Blatant Misogyny

    Hi, my name isn’t really important but what is important is the bold fact that I am a proud third wave feminist who is outraged by the recent discovery of water on mars. I’ll go by the pseudonym Cynthia Whitehead to avoid the massive harassment I will certainly endure at the hands of the white-cis internet trolls. First of all let’s go down the list of why the field of ‘science’ is a tool of white-cis, capitalist patriarchy: 1) the STEM fields are almost purely dominated by white men despite the fact that we have been rallying and trying to get our sisters of color in there for DECADES. 2) The scientific community as a whole pretty much only researches men’s problems, breast cancer research has fallen to the wayside almost entirely. 3) All the MEN in this field fail to acknowledge the fact that they are privileged and don’t deserve the wages they’re earning. All white male scientists should be taxed at 80%– to be donated to feminist research charities, but that’s a discussion for another article.

    The obvious choice of the STEM community to pick Mars, the MALE planet (women are from Venus) should be disgusting enough. Why not Venus, huh, why didn’t these misogynist assh0l3s go look for water on Venus? I’ll tell you why, sisters, pure misogyny. Pure capitalism in action and these sexist overlords aren’t stopping there. As we all know there’s water on Venus but Venal-water denialism has reached an all time high which culminated in the ‘discovery’ of water on the male planet, once again placing all the blame of the world on women and femininity as a whole. I hope one day STEM stops oppressing women and we are allowed to rise up. What a tragic day for women worldwide.

    Per Newsmax, Ken Starr says Mueller should look as to whether Trump lied about his desire to fire Mueller. Starr thinks it’s wrong to lie to the American public. Hmmm…then maybe we need to investigate every POTUS since George Washington.

    To be fair, Starr notes that Trump wears his emotions on his sleeve and made it quite clear he’s not fond of a Mueller, and has a right to fire him so expressing a desire to fire someone is not obstruction of justice.

    Van Jones reminds me of two old friends I had in college and shortly thereafter. They were both intelligent, educated black gay men who always saw race in everything. I understand the hardships that some feel that can never be erased, as I grew up with that with one side of my family putting us down constantly because we were half Latin. I also got that as a gay man before being gay was chic. Bigotry is bigotry no matter what! It impacts you but if you use that pain as an excuse for everything in life, you will never find peace or happiness or reach your true potential as a person (and I don’t mean material worth).

    It’s easier to play the victim than move on. I get that, moving on is difficult. But these privileged entertainers and media folk are getting utterly ridiculous with their self-pity and sense of worth to society.

    I don’t buy the BS that it was Comey costing her the election too. I believe there was evidence in Sep and Oct, if you read between the lines, that showed she was not connecting with the working gents, the tradional Reagan Democrats who gave Trump his victory. They were not driven by Comey actions; they felt abandoned for the Dems flavor of the month charity groups. In addition, Trump took a beating in Sep on the sexual assault and Bush tapes for weeks that I believe depressed his chances at the time but then he bounced back so they can’t have it both ways. I believe without those stories, he would have done better.

    “The show, which ran a bloated three-and-a-half hours, was off an unfortunate 21 percent from 2017 in early numbers. Overnight returns from Nielsen Media give it a 12.7 rating among households — marking its biggest drop since the 2013, the year after the show swelled following the death of Whitney Houston.

    Such a steep drop, however, could very well mean an all-time low for the calendar’s biggest music awards show once updated numbers arrive.”

    The idea that the FBI is not accountable is a moonbat delusion, and I am sure they would want it accountable if for example it had been shown that FBI agents were talking about keeping Obama from being President.

    The trolly should know that the so called nunes memo is based on fbi, nsa, and oig documents,

    The story was yet another one of those anonymous “bombshells” you’ve heard so much about during the Trump era. It was headlined “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence” and was sourced to not one, not two, not three, but four “current and former American officials.” It was just like every other similar story Americans have read or seen in the past year — no indication that the three reporters had verified, much less seen, the underlying evidence, but lots of threatening language insinuating treasonous collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, all sourced to high-ranking but anonymous officials.

    CNN’s Pamela Brown, Jim Sciutto, and Evan Perez reported a very similar story, also sourced to anonymous officials. Sciutto is a former Obama administration appointee who is close to Obama administration officials. Perez has extensive ties to fusion.

And now they think if they can somehow run out the clock and the

    Rubio didn’t make a mistake. He attempted a bi-partisan solution to immigration, something that was the right thing to do and in the interest of the country.

    He had no control over who was in the Dem leadership and it was irrelevant, he had to deal with whomever the Dems chose to represent them in the negotiations.

    It’s called leadership and governing. Of course that is a foreign concept to deadenders.

  840. NYCmike says:

    NYC and “epic failures”:

    Rubio – attempts immigration compromise, never gains traction in pursuit of Presidential primary, mainly due to past, and varied, immigration stances. He is “curiously” silent in 2018, where immigration is once-again a YUGE issue.

    Corker – involves himself in crafting legislation which, somehow, gets more than 50 votes FOR (out of 100 = majority), but FAILS. (James Madison’s tombstone cracks under the pressure of such lunacy). He is now resigning amid rumors of some shoddy accounting and taxes being owed, and early reports show that Marsha Blackburn will hold the Senate seat. Good riddance.

  841. NYCmike says:

    “Rubio tried to arrive at a bi-partisan deal on immigration.” – he should have gotten support from the rest of his caucus first.

    So you admit that you are a flaming hypocrite by saying Rubio should have “gotten support of the caucus” when I have been saying for months that if Cotton-Perdue were serious about their bill they “SHOULD GET SUPPORT OF THE CAUCUS”.

    The fact you supported one bill and not the other is irrelevant.

    I have just caught you on your hypocrisy, admit it and move on.

  853. jason says:

    All you have given me is the number of legal immigrants.”

    Yep that’s the non-starter for ME. I am against ANY cuts in LEGAL immigration. Period.

    You will have to ask the R caucus what their objections are, but I bet that’s a major one.

    And of course, WHY the are opposed is not as important as the fact they ARE opposed.

    So if Rubio should have gotten support of the caucus first, why shouldn’t Cotton-Perdue have done the same?

    Because as usual, you are at war with yourself.

  854. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The FBI scandal has leftists going bonkers:

    “Veteran MSNBC political analyst John Heilemann raised the prospect Mr. Nunes, who as chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence drafted a top secret memo outlining FBI abuses in the investigation of possible Trump-Russia collusion, may be working as a double agent.

    “Doesn’t his behavior speak of that, though?” he said, adding, “I mean, I’m not the first person who’s raised this. He’s behaving like someone who’s been compromised, and there are people in the intelligence community and others with great expertise in this area who look at him and say, ‘That guy’s been compromised.’”

    Mr. Heilemann did not name anyone in the intel community who believes Mr. Nunes, California Republican, is a Kremlin agent.”

    Maybe the Democrats need to get in their own Senator Joe McCarthy, and create lists of potential Putin agents in the U.S.

  855. Bitterlaw says:

    I willl continue my tradition of watching the State of the Union speech. I don’t think I have missed one since 1981. I will also consider my tradition of not watching the response for more than 2 minutes. I ignored the Dems and GOP equally.

  856. Phil says:

    Nunes has been compromised?

    Wow. That smacks of desperation. Just more confirmation that the memo is bad news for the left.

  857. Bitterlaw says:

    I reviewed the comments from last night. Chris Long was not traded by the Patriots. He was a free agent. He is also playing the entire 2017-2018 season for free because he donated his entire salary this season to charity.

  858. NYCmike says:

    jason,

    It is not hypocrisy to realize that the voters did NOT want Rubio’s gambit with Schumer, BUT that if the voters were to hear about Cotton-Perdue, and if the leadership put it up for a floor vote, public pressure would probably get a majority of Republican votes……NOT TO MENTION, it would make Democrats in red states take a YAY or NAY vote on the subject, instead of hiding behind Schumer&Durbins rhetoric.

  859. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – If the bill is so great, why won’t the Senate consider it?

    “In an interview with 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia, former Eagles linebacker coach Steve Spagnuolo said the Patriots were stealing signals in Super Bowl XXXIX.

    The man who crafted the defensive plan of the decade a few years later as defensive coordinator of the Giants recalled having conversations in game with then-Philly DC Jim Johnson.

    “I remember through the course of the game Jim {Johnson} saying, ‘They’re getting our signals. They know when we’re blitzing … try to hide it,” he said. “I remember distinctly thinking, ‘I don’t think so Jim, just concentrate on calling the game.”

    But Spagnuolo said those fears were confirmed when they watched the game over that night, a game the Pats won 24-21.

    “When you go back and look at that tape, it was evident to us,” he said. “We believe that Tom {Brady} knew when we were pressuring him because he certainly got the ball out pretty quick.”

  864. NYCmike says:

    Right now, you have issues like chain migration, end of the lottery system, E-Verify, appropriations BEFORE any other action is taken…….NONE of those were broached by the Rubio’s bill…..YET, the VOTERS support ALL OF THEM.

    Do you want to win elections? Or send messages?

    I have been saying for months that Cotton-Perdue should get support of at least a strong majority of the caucus, there must be dozens of posts where I said that.

    But I guess NYC didn’t actually mean that if its a bill HE supports.

  869. Wes says:

    Here’s a rare non-Dem cheerleading post from RRH describing Mikey and Steve Bannon’s preferred candidate in the Senate primary:

    Let’s talk for second about Danny Tarkanian and the two decades worth of damage he’s done to the Nevada GOP.
    Danny Tarkanian connection with a scam telemarketing company cost the GOP a state Senate seat in 2004.
    Then Tarkanian lost a very winnable Secretary of State election to Ross Miller in 2006. Miller won with only 48% of the vote.
    Next up was the 2010 Nevada Senate election. Tarkanian split the non-crazy vote with Sue Lowden allowing Sharron Angle to win GOP primary with 40% which allowed Harry Reid to get reelected.
    In 2012 fresh off of a $17 million judgement against him in a another one of Tarkanian’s business scheme’s gone wrong he upset Barbara Cegavske in the NV-4 GOP primary and helped elect Steven Horsford to congress.
    Then in 2016 he upset Michael Roberson in the GOP primary and elected Jacky Rosen to Congress.
    Taking money from a charity for kids and laundering it through his congressional campaign to pay off his mortgage is right up Tarkanian’s alley. He is a cancer on the Nevada GOP. The sooner he is gone the better.

  870. jason says:

    907. Right, I know he said Corker is resigning.

    I asked him where he read that and he answered

    Retiring/resigning

    Someone with a little more character would say “I was wrong he is retiring not resigning”

  871. Wes says:

    Basically Danny Tarkanian is Christine O’Donnell with a male sex organ. No wonder the Deadenders back him.

  872. jason says:

    Wes, Tarkanian is the typical deadender NYC supports.

    SEND A MESSAGE.

  873. Wes says:

    Process of retirement in the Senate:

    Announce one is not seeking another term and fail to file for reelection.

    Process of resignation:

    Present a letter to the President of the Senate for the Senate Clerk to read on the floor indicating an intention to vacate a seat before ghe next scheduled election.

    I’m not shocked Mikey fails to understand the difference.

    Dean Heller is undefeated in Nevada, having won statewide office at least twice.

    Danny Tarkanian is a perennial loser never even elected dogcatcher.

    I know which one I support.

  875. CG says:

    NYC’s facts are wrong again.

    The “Gang of Eight” bill that he so vehemently opposed included getting rid of the diversity lottery. Had it passed then, it would have been gone.

    It is also a fact that Rubio, Jeb Bush, and others were all on record years ago saying that the “chain migration” policy should be limited to spouses and minor children.

    None of these things were issues for the “hardliners” then. They said they were only concerned about people scurrying across the southern border. Now, it is about some sort of Draconian measure to decrease legal immigration.

  876. Wes says:

    Heller was the only Republican tunning for Senate to win in a state Obama carried in 2012.

    Tarkanian has lost literally every race he’s run in.

    Hm. Who would make a better candidate?

    That’s a tough one…

  877. Wes says:

    Running*

  878. NYCmike says:

    JEB!2016 said and wrote a lot of things……actually governing in the same way is the issue.

    You are butthurt because Trump is doing lots of what he said he would. He has effectively moved the conversation to issues that conservatives/Republicans have spoken about for years, and we see that voters agree with these positions.

    Stop pining for JEB!2016.

    Jeb and Romney will support Trump in 2020.

  879. NYCmike says:

    If any of you can find one comment where I support Tarkanian over Heller, I’ll go back to being a JETS fan exclusively.

  880. CG says:

    See, now you are just unhinged (on both blogs where we communicate). You make a factual claim and those factual claims are false.

    The “Gang of Eight” bill certainly did address the things you claimed it did not address.

  881. CG says:

    “issues that conservatives/Republicans have spoken about for years”

    Dramatic cuts in legal immigration? Is that what you say Republicans have been speaking about for years? Funny, you never mentioned such things in the past. Where were you talking about it?

  882. NYCmike says:

    ” Now, it is about some sort of Draconian measure to decrease legal immigration.”

    -Back to this again! – numbers are always negotiable.

    Give me chain migration, end to the lottery system, end to unlimited welfare benefits, appropriation$$$ for a wall, E-VERIFY, I’ll phone Cotton-Perdue and tell them no less than a million.

    They will say DEAL!

  883. NYCmike says:

    You stated that it addressed one thing.

    Great.

    How about the rest?

    Oh, and where did you find your definition of “unhinged”?

  884. CG says:

    Well if you think we need to appropriate money to build a wall along the entire southern border, you are crazy. And so much for Mexico paying for it, huh?

    The Gang of Eight Bill did address all those things you said you want, except for overall cuts in legal immigration numbers, and you vehemently opposed it.

  885. NYCmike says:

    If the Gang of 8 bill did ALL of the things that are now being discussed,other than lower numbers of legal immigrants, which is negotiable (saying this again, maybe they will accept it, or just NOT IGNORE IT), why are you not full-throated in support of it, where is Rubio and Schumer, and why does it seem like the media is against it as well?

  886. CG says:

    So, you did not oppose the Gang of Eight bill for those reasons. You opposed it because it offered a path to citizenship for people here illegally, meaning they were not going to be rounded up and deported.

    Just be honest about that. You want to see large numbers of people deported. So do many others. Be honest about it.

    Now, Trump’s “bill of love” will offer a path to citizenship for 1.8 million people. Are you ok with them not being deported?

  887. CG says:

    I was in favor of the Gang of Eight bill, as a private citizen, of course.

  888. CG says:

    Take any position you want, but just get your facts straight, and acknowledge when you are factually incorrect, which you clearly were on here before.

  889. NYCmike says:

    “Well if you think we need to appropriate money to build a wall along the entire southern border, you are crazy. And so much for Mexico paying for it, huh?”

    -Considering that my support for Trump started ONLY AFTER he was the candidate, those campaign promises mean nothing at all to me.

    At this point, I want the wall built just so people can send pictures to Chuck Schumer of them standing next to it, with their middle fingers raised up saying “Eat it, Chuck!”.

    Thinking about this, people go to China to see The Great Wall of China…….maybe we should make it a tourist attraction? All of the LEGAL immigrants coming in will be greeted as old friends by the tourists yelling “Welcome To America, May GOD bless you all with Life, Liberty, and the energy to Pursue Happiness!”

  890. NYCmike says:

    “You opposed it because” I don’t trust Schumer and Durbin.

    Very simple.

    Check out Schumer and Durbin NOW, and what they are saying, compared to back in 2009 and 2010. Back then, they had power to craft whatever they wanted, and President who would have signed the bill, and chosen which parts to enforce.

    How naive can a grown man like you be, to think they would do anything differently than they did after Reagan’s amnesty bill!

  891. CG says:

    You excused and offered a wink and a nod to each and every thing Donald Trump said and did since he came down the escalator in 2015, but that’s not the point.

    The point is that all the “establishment RINOS’ were all in agreement a long time ago on the lottery thing and on reforming the system for family immigration, in exchange for allowing more visas for high-skilled applications. These were considered minor issues that were a piece of cake in regards to dealing with the big picture.

    Now, these once minor points have been elevated to crisis status (and of course Democrats are hyprocrites on that too)because you want to obfuscate from the fact that the immigration issue for Trump and his die-hards has always been about the call (Trump likely never meant it) to physically kick out a lot of people.

  892. CG says:

    Schumer and Durbin were all for getting rid of the diversity lottery, etc in the bill you hated. Obama would have signed it. It passed the Senate. It failed because of right-wing hardliners in the House, and thus, the program persists today.

  893. NYCmike says:

    We are talking about ending policies put in place by Ted Kennedy, ones which have been mentioned time and time again as huge problems by conservatives, Republicans, and even Democrats.

    You are freaking out because it might actually get done, because Trump will deport DREAMERS, IF the Democrats don’t bargain.

    And the good part about that is this: the law is on his side, on the elected Republicans/conservative side, and the BEST PART about it, THE VOTERS AGREE WITH THE CHANGES REPUBLICANS WANT!!!.

  894. NYCmike says:

    “Schumer and Durbin were all for”

    -Then what are they against NOW?

    The level of legal immigration!?!?
    Is that all?

  895. NYCmike says:

    “You excused and offered a wink and a nod to each and every thing Donald Trump said and did since he came down the escalator in 2015, but that’s not the point.”

    -B*llsh*t.

    I never thought he would stay in, then I never thought he would win any contests, then I never thought he would keep it going……only when faced with Trump vs Hillary did I give him a chance, because I had nowhere else to go.

    And like most citizens with common sense who claim to be Republcians/conservatives, I am glad I made that choice.

  896. CG says:

    Ok, and as mentioned, there was bipartisan agreement to get rid of those “Ted Kennedy policies.” Nobody was even making a big deal about it then because it was considered pro-forma for overall comprehensive immigration reform.

    Now, years later, you are clutching your pearls about it and claiming that *legal* immigration has been the problem all along.

  897. CG says:

    Trump is not going to deport the Dreamers, under any circumstance.

    He may be an unstable madman, but he isn’t that stupid.

  898. NYCmike says:

    “It failed because of right-wing hardliners in the House, and thus, the program persists today.”

    -Good things may come to those who persist in making a real compromise.

    Democrats were giving up NOTHING in that Gang of 8 bill, despite your words to the contrary.

    Well, this time, hopefully, will be different.

  899. CG says:

    I think what they, and others, including your some of your pro-Trump brethren here are opposed to are the drastic cuts in legal immigration and wasting way too much money on a “wall” when there are far more effective ways to increase protection at the southern border.

  900. NYCmike says:

    “Trump is not going to deport the Dreamers, under any circumstance.”

    -You want him to simply IGNORE THE LAW?

  901. NYCmike says:

    ” are opposed to are the drastic cuts in legal immigration”

    -How many times……..

  902. CG says:

    The facts are that Democrats were “giving up” a lot then in that bill. Now, they know they look worse to their base for giving up anything to Trump, so they are sort of in the same position that the hardline conservatives were in under Obama and the problem continues.

    It is a *fact* though that the specific bill you said did not address the things you specifically said it did not address did. So, you needed to be factually corrected, which is the one reason why I followed you over here, away from the other place where we have been hanging out.

  903. CG says:

    The Justice Department has already signaled that they aren’t going to be rounding up Dreamers for deportation, as much as they might upset some of the crowd here.

  904. NYCmike says:

    I repeat: at of all of the items in Cotton-Perdue, the only issue that has been raised is the number of legal immigrants, yet “CG” characterizes my support like this: “Even they think his immigration views are nuts. Sad.”

    1 item, which I think is negotiable, and according to “CG”, “my views are nuts”.

    What do the voters think about the individual items of Cotton-Perdue?

    Are Republicans trying to win elections? Or are they trying to send messages?

  905. CG says:

    Cotton-Perdue and “build the wall” are both politically nuts. We all know that neither are going to happen.

    So, let’s focus on the possible.

  906. CG says:

    NYC, was there a specific reason why you never mentioned any concerns about *legal* immigration until late last year? Why this was never something you expressed any feelings about until Cotton-Perdue was introduced?

  907. jason says:

    CG, NYC was against the bill because of fundamental, profound, deep, discerning, sapient reasons:

    Rubio shook hands with Schumer.

  908. CG says:

    Also, seriously, you are rooting for the Patriots solely because Chris Long of the Eagles might not like Trump?

    Really?

  909. CG says:

    Trump could slip Schumer the tongue at the bill signing and NYC will applaud it.

  910. mnw says:

    Guys

    Which trolly alias is “CG”?

  911. jason says:

    I wasn’t crazy about the bill, but in any event it was not Rubio’s bill, it was a compromise that had things he didn’t want and it had things Schumer didn’t want.

    Of course that made Rubio a RINO Traitor in MYC’s limited brain, but the fact is he didn’t deserve any of the stupid vitriol for trying to arrive at a consensus on immigration.

    And of course, we all know Trump nor anybody else is going to deport the Dreamers, nor should he.

  912. jason says:

    It’s our old friend Corey from Chicago.

    You have to give him some slack, he supported two of the most spectacular flameouts in history, Jeb Bush and Jay Cutler.

  913. jason says:

    Chris Long is a moron, but I will still root for the Eagles over the Cheatriots.

    Yeah, I know, Brady is a Trump supporter.

  914. CG says:

    Here’s a thread from right after the Gang of Eight attempt failed. I can’t read it all, but there are many, many posts from NYC, in which his opposition to the bill is repeated, but as far as I can tell, not one single comment about any issues he had with *legal* immigration.

    http://davidwissing.com/?p=20437#comments

  915. jason says:

    I repeat: at of all of the items in Cotton-Perdue, the only issue that has been raised is the number of legal immigrants,”

    That’s like saying the only problem with drinking cyanide is that it is poison.

    Maybe if as NYC has suggested Rubio should have done, Cotton Perdue had consulted with the rest of the caucus, they wouldn’t have included a 50% cut in legal immigration in the bill. And THEN, maybe it would have gotten somewhere with those “other items”.

    What a novel idea huh?

  916. jason says:

    So NYC you would support Cotton Perdue if it included ZERO cuts to LEGAL immigration?

    Yes or no?

  917. CG says:

    Tancredo quits Colorado Governor race!

    Great news!

  918. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    It appears that McCabe performed the old UNC Four Corner offense in 2016 while Deputy AG. He tried to run-out the clock on the Clinton/ A. Weiner E-Mail scandal during the latter part of the Presidential campaign. The DOJ IG discovered this. Is it the tip of the iceberg?!
    Also, news has just broken that after reviewing the Nunez 4 pg. memo, the FBI has claimed there are no inaccuracies in the report. Tick Tock!

  919. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Report: “Two Senior FBI Officials Review Controversial GOP Memo, Find Zero ‘Factual Inaccuracies” (Daily Wire)

  920. NYCmike says:

    “So NYC you would support Cotton Perdue if it included ZERO cuts to LEGAL immigration?”

    -I have said repeatedly, if this is the only sticking point, the number is fungible. I’ll gladly take the other issues, and compromise on this…..since both Cotton-Perdue are still supporting Trump with his 1.8 million number of illegals given citizenship, I would suspect, as I also wrote repeatedly, that they would give in on the numbers of legal immigrants in return for the other issues.

    Negotiating 101 so far – stick to the extremes, then give up on the least important points to get what you really want. It is moving in the right direction so far.

    Let’s see who f*cks it up – will it be Grahamnesty, Flake, or…….

  921. jason says:

    Is that a yes or a no?

    It’s a simple question.

    Will you support a Cotton Perdue bill that has ZERO cuts in LEGAL immigration?

  922. jason says:

    Some things never change. From that thread CG posted…

    jason:

    “NYC says we can’t trust Obama to build the fence mandated in the Senate bill.
    However, nobody gets a permanent resident green card UNTIL those steps are implemented.

    “The bill passed by the Senate devotes $46 billion to border security improvements, including calling for a doubling of the border patrol stationed on the U.S.-Mexico border and the completion of 700 miles of fencing — changes added at the last minute to attract Republican support. No one would be able to get a permanent resident green card until those border enhancements and others were in place.”

    The House should now pass its own bill and negotiate with the senate. They should strengthen the border requirements even more and make the path to citizenship stricter. They should take out the provisions allowing criminals to participate in the process. That is the way the system should work.

    Of course, the deadenders want nothing passed they just love our present system.”

    And lo and behold, the deadenders still want nothing passed and still think we are winning.

  923. CG says:

    Cotton-Perdue also drastically limit the number of refugees (legal immigrants who are vetted through official channels) who are allowed to come to America, in addition to a 50% cut in green cards.

  924. Tina says:

    Sheeple, there is a 2nd dossier.

    We got trump

    Jebots

  925. jason says:

    Negotiating 101 so far – stick to the extremes,”

    Huh, there have been thousands of books on negotiating, I don’t think any ever advanced the notion that “sticking to the extremes” is good negotiating.

  926. Tina says:

    Ryan did a very good job explaining the separations of powers vis a vis the 4 page memo.

    Fbi has confirmed no errors after a review.

    Fbi is the executive branch part.

  927. jason says:

    Cotton Perdue is going nowhere, has always gone nowhere, the authors know its going nowhere.

    Only NYC here thinks its serious legislation.

    That goes…. nowhere.

  928. CG says:

    If only someone started a negotiation with “let’s have Trump hang some illegal Mexicans as part of the Super Bowl Halftime Show before telling that SOB Chris Long to get off the field”, NYC would go crazy in glee, not because he wants people to die, but because he would love the “boldness” of the “extreme negotiating”

  929. jason says:

    So NYC still waiting for that yes or no answer….

  930. Tina says:

    Cory Booker, dumsheot from nj, has stated that releasing the dossier is treasonous.

    Does this idiot even no the separation of powers.

    Muh russian is dead. We are now examining the degree of fbi, doj corruption by the obumbler regime.

  931. jason says:

    If only someone started a negotiation with “let’s have Trump hang some illegal Mexicans as part of the Super Bowl Halftime Show”

    He would say the number of illegal Mexicans hung would be “fungible”

  932. jason says:

    Cory Booker, dumsheot from nj, has stated that releasing the dossier is treasonous.”

    Wow, it must really have bad news for the Dems.

    Are these the same people who defended Chelsea Manning for stealing classified material?

  933. jason says:

    Tick tock, tick tock….so NYC can we have a yes or no answer?

  934. CG says:

    Does NYC think that all the New England Patriots are pro-Trump?

    Even Robert Kraft has expressed his “deep disappointment” with Trump. How can he root for the Patriots knowing that?

  935. Tina says:

    Schiff for brains is stuck.

    If he releases anything without aplroval, he would have released classified information.

    He already got caught leaking trump jrs testimony.

    A criminal referral iinto schiff for brains is warranted.

  936. CG says:

    As a business owner, NYC has to sometimes put in 60-80 hours of work per week and might not get paid until after all the employees get paid, so something might have come up to temporarily prevent the yes/no answer.

  937. Tina says:

    If he answers yes, then he admits Cotton Perdue is a waste of time.

    If he answers no, he shows his true colors, and we know that its not really about illegal immigration and upholding immigration laws.

  946. jason says:

    All Kasich would do is ensure a Dem would win, maybe that’s why CG is interested.

    I like Kasich, but that would be a stupid move.

    If he wants to run, he can primary Trump and see if he can get the nomination.

    Otherwise, he is just a shill for the Marxists.
