    “New text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page say President Obama wanted to know ‘everything we’re doing.”

  2. jason says:

    Imagine if when Bush was President, what the MSM would have said if it had come out that Bush wanted to know everything about keeping Obama from being elected.

    This IA guv poll is the Selzer poll we talked about over the weekend. Again, Selzer does the Iowa poll, & is the best there is.

    The Des Moines Register commissioned this poll. Since Saturday, the ONLY thing we knew about it was, “Iowans (heart) illegal aliens!”

    Then finally 5 days later… oh, btw, best pollster in U.S. shows GOP guv leading in race for re-election.

    I blame Trump. Why not, he gets blamed whenever some Republican loses an election for Recorder of Deeds, right?

  5. DW says:

    I have to echo the sentiments of jason in the thread below. There is Trump, and there are conservative principles. I don’t understand why MD felt he had to jettison both, only because the two have a brief intersection in history. I never for a minute believed throughout early 2016 that Trump had any chance. But I was wrong. Early 2016 I also believed that Trump was a trojan horse…that his aim was to get into the white house as a Republican and then get down on all fours and hop up on Schumer’s lap to be his pet dog. That was not an unreasonable position to hold. But it turned out to be wrong. I was heartened when Trump picked Pence, but I still never believed he had a shot until the week before the election when the IA Des Moines register poll came out. Even then it was a long shot. And I still feared he would get pulled left once in the white house. But some great things have happened since Trump was sworn in. I don’t have to like him personally, but results are results, and its time for MD to shake off his mistaken predictions, return to his conservative roots, and embrace the good that has been done. Trump is far from perfect, but like it or not he is the current head of the party. He won’t be forever, but God-willing Neil Gorsuch will be on the high court the rest of my life. The tax cut and economic growth is coming at a crucial moment in history. It is a shame that MD would sit all this out because of his dislike of Trump, the embarrassment of bad predictions, and the inner turmoil of bad feelings over the way he bullied some here who ended up being right in the end. MD, if you are out there reading this, I invite you to return to HHR, return to your roots, make amends with those you should, and get back in the game.

    We still have your Paladin/CFP office space waiting for your return too.

    MD believes in making money and hating Trump.”

    Not really. By opposing the tax cuts he undercuts that argument.

  7. jason says:

    Even if he is in a tax bracket that did not benefit from the tax cuts, MD should have been in favor of measures that will help small businesses, cut the corporate tax rate, and put more money in the hands of consumers, because that will benefit the economy in general.

  8. Tom says:

    Any insights on why the Missouri house seat flipped (HD97)? Were there problems with the Republican candidate?

  9. Chicon says:

    Mnw – I saw the score of the Blues game. Hawks were awful again. Down to 13% chance of making the playoffs.

    Starting to look for another dog. Putting one down earlier than expected is no fun. Thank you for asking.

    Hope the knee is improving.

  10. mnw says:

    Tom

    No. (I am a lifelong Missourian.)

    DEMs ran an attractive 29 yr old who campaigned on eduction & other local issues. He won by 3%, on the same night the GOP held 3 other seats.

    zzzz

  11. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Does anyone want to read this just-released 500 page interim report by Ron Johnson’s(R-WI) Senate Committee? It focuses on FBI shenanigans in the Clinton e-mail investigation.
    Maybe Messy’s “sources” can summarize it!

    http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2018/02/inside-the-fbi-circle-of-love-source-material.php?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+powerlineblog%2Flivefeed+%28Power+Line%29

  12. jason says:

    “and Comey and Peter Strzok drafted the letter that destroyed the Clinton campaign and got Trump elected.”

    Funny how both Messy the Troll and Wobbie the Fake News Sycophant promote the same debunked lie. Data shows Hillary was already declining in the polls BEFORE the letter, and that in fact she INCREASED her lead in the polls in the last weekend before the election.

    And in any event, Hillary’s decision to violate the law with the private server was her’s alone. The Democrat’s decision to nominate someone they knew to be under criminal investigation by the FNI was their’s alone. If the email debacle doomed her candidacy, it was her doing, not Comey’s.

    The real reason Hillary lost was that most of the voters viewed her as dishonest and untrustworthy, combined with her decision to ignore the concerns of blue collar voters in rust belt states.

    In the end, she was a horrible candidate. That is why she lost.

  13. Chicon says:

    Why did Comey eventually tell the public he was reopening the Clinton email investigation, when he could have buried it?

  14. jason says:

    And let’s not pretend that the letter caused Hillary to have unfavorable coverage by the MSM.

    Quite to the contrary. The MSM went out of its way to portray the letter as unjustified and partisan and contrary to tradition, bla, bla, bla, and the “news” was all about Dems attacking Comey and the FBI while protecting Hillary.

    Hillary continued with 98% favorable coverage and Trump with 98% negative coverage. Nothing changed.

  15. jason says:

    Why did Comey eventually tell the public he was reopening the Clinton email investigation, when he could have buried it?”

    If he buried it he knew that eventually it would have come out and he would be on the receiving end of a major scandal, how could he keep from Congress that he knew potentially compromising emails belonging to the Dem candidate were on Carlos Danger’s computer.

    So he tried to finagle it by saying they were investigating. He probably also thought what most of everyone in the FBI and the Administration thought, that Hillary was a sure thing to win, and that this would not affect her chances. They were reading the same analysis by Princeton whatever giving Hillary a 99% chance of winning.

  16. jason says:

    Dow up 264 points, 667 yesterday.

    I blame Trump.

  17. DW says:

    16 –

    News media: Dow? What’s that?

  18. mnw says:

    Chicon

    Knee IS improving but still a major hassle & inconvenience. Thx for asking.

  19. jason says:

    Lots of articles out there saying that the NYT’s headline about Comey’s letter only happened because they too were convinced it was a done deal.

    There were stories all over the place about how well Hillary was doing in early voting, how she had already banked enough votes in FL, NC, NV, etc. to win those states.

    One could make the argument that if the polls were more favorable to Trump, Comey would have buried the story and taken the fallout later with Hillary as President, but we will never know.

  20. NYCmike says:

    “but we will never know.”

    Beautiful words!

  21. jason says:

    News media: Dow? What’s that?”

    I saw a MSM headline: “Trump presides over largest DOW drop in history”

    What they didn’t mention is that the market recovered somewhat during the day and that it was only the biggest drop (in points) because the DOW was so high, and that as a percentage it was not even close.

  22. jason says:

    I am glad the GOP is going after fake moderate Manchin with hard hitting ads.

  23. Phil says:

    Governor Gavin.

    Good luck Tina and San Diego. God help you guys. You deserve better. When Moonbeam Brown is considered the adult in the room among Democrats and its a one party state you know you’re in trouble.

  24. DW says:

    If the GOP had rigged their own primary process to ensure one candidate wins, the media would talk about it all the time.

    If the GOP candidate cheated and was given the debate questions and failed to disclose it, the media would talk about it all the time.

    If the GOP candidate had compromised national security by exposing classified documents on an unsecured e-mail server, the media would talk about it all the time.

    If the GOP had weaponized the FBI to take out the Dem candidate, the media would talk about it all the time.

    But they don’t talk about anything of these things and then they get mad when they are called out for being fake news.

  25. jason says:

    This alone is incredible. “We” can’t take that risk…

    In August 2016 Strzok wrote to her that he wanted to believe ‘that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.’

  26. MikeP says:

    Jason sorry not mentioning you. You were part of etc. so was Acosco(?)or what ever his name is now. Hellbelly, Phil,mwn

  30. Mr.Vito says:

    After McCabe’s wife lost, Strzok said Loudon is being gentrified by is still full of ignorant hillbillies.

  31. DW says:

    Generic ballot, Quinnipiac.

    Their prior one was D+13

    Now D+9

  32. DW says:

    RCP average for generic ballot now stands at D+6.0

  33. Phil says:

    32

    When you look in the dictionary at the word “elites” there is a picture of Strzok.

  34. jason says:

    Politico:

    “GOP voters trust CNN, N.Y. Times over Breitbart, InfoWars”

    That’s a pretty low bar, but I don’t trust any of them.

    And Infowars is not a conservative site anyway.

  35. jason says:

    “Strzok said Loudon is being gentrified by is still full of ignorant hillbillies.”

    You can imagine what the MSM would say if you had someone in charge of an investigation against Obama on record as saying “MN is trending red, but is still full of moonbats”.

  36. jason says:

    50 Republican MAINE Paul LePage 70,000″

    And overpaid at that…

  37. DW says:

    37 – several factors..

    1) What does it mean to ‘trust’?
    2) Trust in regards to what information? I mean if its a story about an earthquake and its aftermath, then, ok, I might trust CNN. If its a story about politics involving any degree of subjectivity, then no, I wouldn’t trust CNN.
    3) Everything now is politicized it seems. So most any story I read I am on guard for their bias.

  38. DW says:

    On second thought, even an earthquake story one has to be careful with CNN:

    “CNN reporting live from the disaster zone. The earthquake struck in the early morning hours, bringing the worst devastation to the low-income communities, exposing once again the privilege the rich have living in better-built housing.

    No doubt President Trump and Republicans will be slow in the delivery of much needed aid, bringing into question their ability to provide compassionate leadership. Federal spending reductions for FEMA and the Red Cross has also hampered relief efforts. Our reporter at the scene has interviewed one victim standing beside the rubble of his home who calls into question lack of Republican action on climate change as partly to blame for the deadly quake….”

  39. Mr.Vito says:

    The latest released snippet of the gallup party affiliation is definitely bad news for the GOP, and would indicate a probable house flip.

    However, it was from Jan2-8 which just happened to be during the biggest gap in the congressional ballot.

    As always, the gallup PID tracks very well with the congressional ballot, so we’ll see in a month if it has tightened as well.

  40. jason says:

    Wow.

    Nothing lazy, stupid, incompetent, or irresponsible about him.

    Maybe in Wackyland, Jason, but this is reality. Here, Bush was a lazy, stupid, inarticulate, incompetent, irresponsible failure in the White House.

  42. Wes says:

    It’s good to see Scott is competitive with Nelson. I hope Lex Luthor can finally hand that fraud a defeat.

  43. dblaikie says:

    I agree with the above sentiments concerning MD. As one whom he tried to bully, belittle, and deride I say that a simple apology, not for being wrong, but for being plain ugly would be all I need to welcome him back.

    However I don’t think he will. His ego is too tender.

    I have been in disagreements with other folks on this site like Jason. However I never felt he attacked me personally like MD did. Jason attacked me for first liking Ben Carson and then Trump but those were about positions and politics and not personal. Besides once I discovered his appreciation for a good single malt I new that down deep was a heart of good Islay peat (just joking Jason).

  44. dblaikie says:

    My main problem with Bush is that he didn’t have the guts to defend his administration. He would rather be liked by the press.

  45. dblaikie says:

    “Maybe in Wackyland, Jason, but this is reality. Here, Bush was a lazy, stupid, inarticulate, incompetent, irresponsible failure in the White House.”

    One thing agree with him or not, Jason can sling together a string of adjectives.

  46. Mr.Vito says:

    Senate has agreed to a budget without addressing DACA.

    It lifts sequestration caps, includes hurricane disaster relief, CHIP, and lifts the debt limit.

    A new NC Poll. The GOP is doing just fine in the Tar Heel State.

    http://amp.charlotteobserver.com/news/politics-government/article198833529.html

  48. Mr.Vito says:

    “More Meredith respondents gave him favorable ratings (48.7 percent) than they did unfavorable ratings (47.7 percent). Still, a majority of North Carolina Republicans polled about Trump said the GOP should have another candidate to consider.”

    Sounds right.

  49. Mr.Vito says:

    More on the budget deal:

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/02/07/senate-leaders-announce-budget-agreement.html

    “…the deal would fund the government through March 23. While Congress would still have to pass another spending measure before that deadline, the agreement announced Wednesday includes a longer-term pact to lift spending caps by roughly $400 billion for Pentagon and domestic programs over two years.

    Defense Secretary James Mattis said Wednesday he was encouraged by the deal.

    “I’m heartened that Congress recognizes the sobering effect of budgetary uncertainty on America’s military and on the men and women who provide for our nation’s defense,” Mattis said during the White House briefing.

  50. jason says:

    Those were wes’ adjectives not mine.

    I think GWB was the right man for the times, we were immensely lucky to have him instead of Al Gore for 9/11, and just for that wes should be eternally thankful.

  51. jason says:

    wes is the one that lives in wackyland, BDS land.

    In the real world, Bush was the second best President in my lifetime after Reagan.

  52. jason says:

    If you say Michael Jackson killed JFK, can you believe the part where you say you dated Ivanka Trump.

    “Quincy Jones goes all in in a new interview where he discusses Michael Jackson, who he claims killed JFK, and dating Ivanka Trump.

    In the Vulture interview, the legendary record producer called Donald Trump a “crazy motherf—er. Limited mentally — a megalomaniac, narcissistic. I can’t stand him. I used to date Ivanka, you know.”

  53. jason says:

    Pelosi doesn’t like the deal.

    Must have some redeeming value.

    Quincy Jones did not say Michael Jackson killed JFK.

    He said Sam Giancana killed JFK.

    #commasmatter

  58. jason says:

    “Quincy Jones goes all in in a new interview where he discusses Michael Jackson, who he claims killed JFK, and dating Ivanka Trump.”

    #Quotationmarksmatter

  59. jason says:

    The article says Quincy Jones claims Michael Jackson killed JFK.

  60. CG says:

    No, it does not. The interview is very clear.

    The sentence you are reading does not grammatically reach the conclusion you did. It does not say “whom” and does not have a semi-colon.

    Besides, some common sense… Michael Jackson was 5 years old then. How the hell was he going JFK. B-tch please.

  61. jason says:

    Later it talks about Giancana, but I was referring to this specific sentence.

    And even then, I prefaced my comment with “if”

    So why don’t you GFY like the good little sanctimonious prick you are.

  62. Mr.Vito says:

    Fske news about fake news?

  63. jason says:

    “Quincy Jones goes all in in a new interview where he discusses Michael Jackson, who he claims killed JFK, and dating Ivanka Trump.”

    It’s pretty clear, even for a moron like you.

    And in any case, I never claimed I believed it one way or the other, actually I implied I didn’t believe either claim.

    So GFY again.

  64. CG says:

    The sentence as structured is correct grammatically.

    It does not claim that Michael Jackson was the one whom Quincy Jones discusses as having killed JFK.

    If you somehow reached the conclusion that Quincy Jones was claiming that a 5 year old Michael Jackson left Gary, Indiana to kill JFK in Dallas, you might have been prompted to do some additional research to see if that is actually what was said.

  65. jason says:

    Zzzzzz…

    You really are an ignorant turd.

    Who knows what Quincy Jones was claiming, all I know is the article, the way it was written, says “where he discusses Michael Jackson, who he claims killed JFK”

    It says Quincy Jones discusses Michael Jackson, who he claims killed JFK.

    I said I think its BS, but you are free to research it.

  66. jason says:

    Corey is probably having a bad day, Jeb Bush is still not President.

    No problem, I can’t take undeserved credit.

    However, I will take a raincheck for a future compliment.

  69. jason says:

    I get it now.

    Corey is correct and I was wrong.

    He is still a sanctimonious prick, but his interpretation of the sentence is correct.

  70. jason says:

    I don’t know if this really qualifies as “dating” Ivanka Trump”

    Yes, sir. Twelve years ago. Tommy Hilfiger, who was working with my daughter Kidada, said, ‘Ivanka wants to have dinner with you.’ I said, ‘No problem. She’s a fine motherf***er.’

  71. Tgca says:

    1 Jason

    If you’re going to inform all of breaking news that is of great consequence, you need to succeed it with Boom! See Tina’s posts for examples please. Thank you.

  72. Mr.Vito says:

    “He is still a sanctimonious prick, but his interpretation of the sentence is correct.”

    He is wrong about the grammar. First, it is still ‘who’ not ‘whom’ when read incorrectly… [the author] claims HE killed JFK, not he claims HIM killed JFK.

    Secondly, it should be “during which” not “where” since an interview is not a location.

    Thirdly, MJ is a noun, “the person” he claims killed JFK is a noun, but “dating Ivanka” is not, so the structure is grammatically incorrect.

    Finally, anyone worth their salt will say that a sentence that can easily be read more than one way is not grammatically sound.

  73. Mr.Vito says:

    “… anyone worth their salt will say that a sentence that can easily be read more than one way is not grammatically sound.”

    Makes for great comedy writing though…

  74. Mr.Vito says:

    *[the author] should be [Quincy Jones]

  75. Tgca says:

    I dunno. It is possible MJK could have been involved in the JFK assassination at 5. In some depressed minority neighborhoods, it is not unusual for kids to join gangs at young school age even though 5 may be pushing it so the suggestion MJK was involved in the JFK assassination is not out of the realm of possibility, though not likely. How would he have gotten to Dallas on that fateful day. Hmmm…

  76. Mr.Vito says:

    Michael Jackson was one of JFKs love children.

  77. CG says:

    Ted Cruz’s father obviously smuggled young Michael Jackson to Dallas.

    Can’t trust those immigrants!

    CG you RACIST!

    Reading between the lines, your implication is that Latin immigrants are responsible for the death of an American President, and therefore Ted Cruz should be deported to pay for the sins of the father which by the way is ironic since Ron Kessler wrote a book (back in the 90s I believe) titled Sins of the Father about Joe Kennedy, Sr. and all the good deeds he did in his life.

    his interpretation is correct given the full text of the article, but he did not interpret the sentence the way it is written. it is grammatically correct in that it is a sentence that can be read.

    “Quincy Jones goes all in in a new interview where he discusses Michael Jackson, who he claims killed JFK, and dating Ivanka Trump.”

    should probably be,

    “Quincy Jones goes all in in a new interview where he discusses Michael Jackson; who he claims killed JFK; and dating Ivanka Trump.”

    because the three clauses are independent

    In the real world, Bush was the second best President in my lifetime after Reagan.

    This literally has to be the stupidest non-Bunu post ever inflicted on HHR.

    Bush lied the country in the war and sat back and did not a goddamn thing for literally half a decade while terrorists slaughtered thousands at will. He was literally too stupid for his job.

    RCP article quotes that Pelosi claims her 6 yo grandsons b-day wish was to have brown skin and brown eyes like his friend Antonio. Could she be any more of an idiot? Pandering for votes to minorities and using her clueless 6 yo grandson as a tool – and yes, at 6 yo, children are clueless to the complexities of the world – is ridiculous.

    Kids may all be cute and make us chuckle with their comments but generally they are extremely easily manipulated to say whatever their loved ones condition them to believe, as they do not contemplate serious thought to their statements. Let’s see what this kid thinks in 20 years, and I’ll give his thoughts more serious consideration.

  103. jason says:

    Not only did Quincy Jones “date” Ivanka, he also claims Marlon Brando nailed Richard Pryor and Marvin Gaye.

    “Less nuts on the crazy scale is that superstar Marlon Brando, who was a close friend with Jones, had a lot of sex. We “used to go cha-cha dancing,” he said, adding that Brando “could dance his ass off.” He went on to describe him as “the most charming motherf***er you ever met,” but “He’d f*** anything. Anything! He’d f*** a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.” When asked if he slept with those three stars, he replied, “Come on, man. He did not give a f***!” Then he asked the reporter, “You like Brazilian music?” as if he didn’t just make some outrageous allegations about a Hollywood icon.

    For the record, Pryor’s wife Jennifer has subsequently confirmed the relationship between Brando and her late husband. “It was the ‘70s!” she told TMZ, “Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d f**k a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.”

    I wager another 10-20% aren’t sure the Mueller investigation is unfair, but are alarmed by the FBIs behavior on the Clinton case and FISA warrant.

  114. jason says:

    Right, and the fact is every leader in the West believed Saddam had WMD (or was pretending to have, same difference, would you trust him?) and so did Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry,

    “There is no doubt that . Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies.”
    Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others,
    Dec, 5, 2001.

    “We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them.”
    Sen. Carl Levin (d, MI), Sept. 19, 2002.

    “We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.”
    Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.

    “Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.”
    Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.

    “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seing and developing weapons of mass destruction.”
    Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002.

    “The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…”
    Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002.

    “I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”
    Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002.

    “There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years . We also should remember we have alway s underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction.”
    Sen. Jay Rockerfeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002,

    “He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do.”
    Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002.

    “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program.
    He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.”
    Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

    “We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass
    destruction. “[W]ithout question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime … He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation. And now he has continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction … So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real …
    Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003.

  115. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes and Jason fighting over GWB. Seen it already.

    By the way, Robert E. Lee should have been court martialed for violating his oath as a U.S. officer and then hanged for treason.

  116. jason says:

    The reason all these people had the same opinion was because they were reading the same intelligence Bush was.

    But HE was the guy with the responsibility and the buck stopped with him.

    And he made the best decision he could with the information at hand.

    wes is full of crap.

  117. jason says:

    Bush had the perfect line when he said

    “Trusting in the sanity of Saddam Hussein is not an option”.

  118. jason says:

    Saddam Hussein couldn’t come clean on WMD because he didn’t want to appear weak before Iran and his other neighbors, he didn’t want to lose clout. So he had to pretend he still had them, and nobody could take that risk, considering he had already used them against Iran and his own people.

    Bush didn’t lie to start any war. He gave Saddam numerous chances to allow the inspectors to verify he had no WMD. Saddam chose to not to comply. Even on the eve of the attack, he had the option of resigning and avoiding the war. He really left Bush and Blair no choice.

  119. Bitterlaw says:

    Jason – Wes has the difficult task of proving that Bush was both a moron AND an evil genius who somehow convinced Israel, the U.K., France and Germany that Hussein was a threat.

  120. jason says:

    Laura Ingraham says Sidney Blumenthal was the source for Steele’s dossier.

  121. jason says:

    Jason – Wes has the difficult task of proving that Bush was both a moron AND an evil genius who somehow convinced Israel, the U.K., France and Germany that Hussein was a threat.”

    Not to mention Kerry, Clinton, Kennedy, Gore…..

    He got them all to “lie” for him.

    Astounding.

  122. jason says:

    Maybe everyone thought Saddam was a threat because he started two wars that killed over a million people, used WMD on Iran and his own people, lobbed Scud missiles into populated areas of Israel and Saudi Arabia with the express aim of killing civilians, caused the biggest man-made environmental disaster of all time by setting fire to 700 oil wells, and used the oil for food program to buy and develop more weapons instead of feeding his people.

    I mean, who could think such a thing, right? How unfair.

  123. jason says:

    Not to mention he was funding the families of suicide bombers in Israel.

  124. Wes says:

    Jason literally laughed at the idea that large numbers of people died after Bush led us into that moronic war.

    What a sick Bush-worshipping sonofabitch.

    I wonder if we’ll ever find a cure for Bush Worship Syndrome. Corey, Jason, and Bitterlaw can definitely use one.

  125. Wes says:

    Right, Jason. It’s not as if we hadn’t beaten Saddam 12 years earlier and locked down his country after that.

    You Bush Bitchboys seem to have absolutely no knowledge of history.

  126. jason says:

    So wes, were all those Democrats “lying” too?

  127. Wes says:

    No, Bitter.

    No one can honestly look at anything GWB–who thinks Pervez Musharraf was named General by the way–has done and say “genius.”

    He was, however, clearly willing to lie his sorry ass off to get his war and fail miserably at it.

  128. jason says:

    Trolls hardest hit..

    “President Trump has a stronger approval rating today than media darling Barack Obama did back in 2010 on this same day.

    Back on February 7, 2010 Barack Obama had an approval rating of 44% while 56% of likely voters disapproved of the far left president.”

  129. jason says:

    You Bush Bitchboys seem to have absolutely no knowledge of history.”

    LOL

    It was exactly because Bush understood the history of Saddam Hussein that he knew he could not be trusted.

  130. Wes says:

    They were either lying along with Bush or just doing what politicians do and following the path of least resistance to potential electoral success.

    Either way, they ultimately disavowed the idiocy in Iraq. You’re still defending that unmitigated failure.

  131. jason says:

    I love it when wes goes to bat for Saddam Hussein.

    You have to admire someone willing to try to sell the idea Saddam was not a threat.

    Obviously someone who loves a challenge.

  132. jason says:

    Either way, they ultimately disavowed the idiocy in Iraq.”

    Zzzzzz… for political reasons, very obvious.

    But before the war, they interpreted the intelligence the same way every other leader in the West did.

  133. Wes says:

    Right, Jason.

    12 years with multinational patrols watching his every move.

    Saddam was basically Blofield in 2003 with his superweapons ready to take over the world for SPECTRE.

    Give me a goddamn break.

    You’ve watched way too many James Bond movies if you think Saddam was a realistic threat to anyone outside Iraq.

  134. jason says:

    Jason literally laughed at the idea that large numbers of people died after Bush ”

    You are now unhinged and just talking trash.

    Pitiful and pathetic.

  137. Wes says:

    Saddam wasn’t a threat to anyone outside Iraq after 1991, Jason. There’s exactly zero evidence he was. That doesn’t mean he was a good person. He was quite evil actually. He was about as much of a real threat to us as Robert Mugabe though.

    Why didn’t we take out Mugabe if Saddam had to go?

  138. jason says:

    But wes “knew” Saddam was not a threat.

    Hilarious.

  139. Wes says:

    No, Jason. Your own words from post 111:

  140. jason says:

    Why didn’t we take out Mugabe if Saddam had to go?”

    Are you really that stupid?

    Did Mugabe do this?

    aybe everyone thought Saddam was a threat because he started two wars that killed over a million people, used WMD on Iran and his own people, lobbed Scud missiles into populated areas of Israel and Saudi Arabia with the express aim of killing civilians, caused the biggest man-made environmental disaster of all time by setting fire to 700 oil wells, and used the oil for food program to buy and develop more weapons instead of feeding his people. Not to mention he was funding the families of suicide bombers in Israel.”

  141. jason says:

    The LOL was for your stupid statement.

    “Talk about stupid statement.

    LOL”

    I could make the argument that YOU didn’t care that Saddam was responsible for the death of a million people in 2 wars, plus genocide against his own people, killing over 300k.

    Yeah, he was not a threat.

    You really are a joke, you have your BDS take over your common sense.

  142. Wes says:

    All those SPECTRE-style superweapons Saddam supposedly had never surfaced or were used against us, Jason.

    If I were an unhinged dictator sitting on top of these huge stockpiles of WMDs ready to destroy the rnemy, I can tell you the first thing I’m going to do after my country is invaded is not use the things.

    Here’s the diction defintion of weapon since you seem not to understand it:

    weapon

  143. jason says:

    You should thank your lucky stars we had GWB as President instead of Al Gore.

    He wasn’t perfect, but was a damm good President, certainly much better than Clinton or Obama, and certainly a lot better than Gore or Kerry.

  144. jason says:

    All those SPECTRE-style superweapons Saddam supposedly had never surfaced or were used against us, Jason.”

    Actually the did surface and he did use them, at least twice.

    And he refused to verify they were destroyed.

    Thus, Bush and Blair had not choice but to take him out.

    Quite simple, really.

    Fortunately, we had a Presidend that rose to the occasion.

    An FBI informant connected to the Uranium One controversy told three congressional committees in written testimony that Moscow routed millions of dollars to America with the expectation it would be used to benefit Bill Clinton’s charitable efforts while Secretary of State Hillary Clinton quarterbacked a “reset” in US-Russian relations.
    The informant, Douglas Campbell, said in the testimony obtained by The Hill that he was told by Russian nuclear executives that Moscow had hired the American lobbying firm APCO Worldwide specifically because it was in position to influence the Obama administration, and more specifically Hillary Clinton.
    .
    Campbell said Russian nuclear officials “told me at various times that they expected APCO to apply a portion of the $3 million annual lobbying fee it was receiving from the Russians to provide in-kind support for the Clinton’s Global Initiative,” he added in the testimony.
    “The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months. APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the U.S.-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement. “

  154. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Here is a quote from The Hill article referenced in #156.

    “An FBI informant connected to the Uranium One controversy told three congressional committees in written testimony that Moscow routed millions of dollars to America with the expectation it would be used to benefit Bill Clinton’s charitable efforts while Secretary of State Hillary Clinton quarterbacked a “reset” in US-Russian relations.

    The informant, Douglas Campbell, said in the testimony obtained by The Hill that he was told by Russian nuclear executives that Moscow had hired the American lobbying firm APCO Worldwide specifically because it was in position to influence the Obama administration, and more specifically Hillary Clinton.

    Democrats have cast doubt on Campbell’s credibility, setting the stage for a battle with Republicans over his testimony.

    Campbell said Russian nuclear officials “told me at various times that they expected APCO to apply a portion of the $3 million annual lobbying fee it was receiving from the Russians to provide in-kind support for the Clinton’s Global Initiative,” he added in the testimony.

    “The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months.

    Several GOP incs in CA are clearly in trouble— Donovan Hunter, several others. One GOP inc in FL is dead man walking, too.

    I read a persuasive analysis someplace, however, that polling shows that DEM gains are coming in blue states & districts, but that independents in red districts are exactly where they were in 2016. The DEMs can’t flip the House unless that changes.

    The GOP nominee in PA-18 (Saccone) isn’t very impressive, & his FR numbers are poor— the DEM (Lamb) has raised twice as much. However, the natl GOP has bigfooted the race, & there are 5x more GOP TV and radio ads than DEM ads. I listened to one GOP ad over at Breitbart. Quite good, imo. Linked Lamb to Pelosi’s opposition to middle class tax cuts.

    Supposedly Saccone has paid canvassers, too. I’d sure like to see a new poll. I could care less about losing a MO state House election in a special with 2000 voters, but PA-18 is another story.

    Shearer’s so-called dossier is actually a set of notes based on conversations with reporters and other sources, according to the person who spoke to CNN, and he circulated those notes to assorted journalists, as well as to Blumenthal.
    Blumenthal then passed the notes to Jonathan Winer, who was a State Department special envoy for Libya under former Secretary of State John Kerry, the source said. Winer had a previous relationship with Steele, and he passed it along to Steele in order to get his assessment.
    Blumenthal, according to the source, did not know that Winer would consult Steele on the Shearer document, and said Winer made that decision on his own.
    After Winer gave Steele the notes from Shearer, Steele wrote that he found it interesting and it tended to corroborate some of what he found, but he also noted that it was uncorroborated, the source said.
    Shearer’s notes, a copy of which were obtained by CNN, make uncorroborated allegations involving Trump and Russia, and they cite unnamed Russian intelligence and Turkish sources.
    Steele provided Shearer’s notes to the FBI in October 2016.”

    Dems, media and pundits are all making the assumption that the anti-Trump hatred is equally felt everywhere. They have that hatred, and they truly cannot understand that others do not share that hate.

    Given the tax reform that was passed, if the GOP house can stay out of trouble the rest of the year and keep making solid decisions, they should be fine in the fall–given the aforementioned seats likely to flip blue. But majority control should stay GOP.

    With the IG Investigation going on…looks like another BOOM…

    A Justice Department official who helped oversee the controversial probes of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and Russian interference in the 2016 election stepped down this week.

    David Laufman, an experienced federal prosecutor who in 2014 became chief of the National Security Division’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section, said farewell to colleagues Wednesday. He cited personal reasons. […]

    “It’s tough to leave a mission this compelling and an institution as exceptional as the Department of Justice,” said Laufman, 59. “But I know that prosecutors and agents will continue to bring to their work precisely what the American people should expect: a fierce and relentless commitment to protect the national security of the United States.” […]

    Critics noted that Laufman had donated to Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns, referring to him as a “holdover.”

    Laufman joins a growing list of key officials resigning from the Justice Department/FBI cabal amid Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s probe into the bureau’s Clinton email investigation.

    Back to the NCAA basketball tourney, I do think the time is right for the NIT tournament to be abolished, and for the bracket to expand to 128 teams.

    When the current bracket expanded to 64 teams back in the mid 1980s there were not that many great or even good teams. But College hoops has exploded both in popularity and in terms of quality of play. So every year there are solid teams left out because the very weakest conferences are all guaranteed one seat at the table–as they should.

    But now some of the middle-range conferences have two or even three teams worthy of consideration, but there is no room for them. For instance, the MAC conference. Only the team that wins the conference tourney will get in, but both Buffalo and Toledo are worthy of getting in. If another MAC team gets hot and wins the conf tourney, then neither Buffalo or Toledo advance.

    At this point the 68 team field is hindering the sport needlessly.

    It would be cool watching the 32 seed battling a 1 seed, and the 31 taking down a 2.

    Here would be a sample of the eight regions, where states would be able to overlap some:

    1) Northeast (New England, NY, NJ, PA)
    2) Mid-atlantic (PA, NJ, MD, VA, WV)
    3) Southeast (FL, GA, SC, NC, TN)
    4) Gulf Coast (FL, AL, MS, LA, TX, AR)
    5) Ohio Valley (PA, OH, IN, KY, MO, IL, WV)
    6) Upper Midwest (MI, IN, IL, WI, MN, IA)
    7) Rocky Mountains-Great plains (ND, SD, NE, KS, OK, MT, WY, CO, NM, AZ, UT, ID, NV)

    California Court Allows Bakersfield Baker to Refuse to Bake Cake for Lesbian Wedding
    .
    A California court has ruled that a Christian baker cannot be forced to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple because it would violate her First Amendment rights — a decision that runs against a national trend of cases now before the U.S. Supreme Court.
    Kern County Superior Court Judge David Lampe ruled Monday that it would have been impermissible for baker Cathy Miller, who operates the Tastries Bakery in Bakersfield, to refuse to sell a cake that was already made to a same-sex couple. However, forcing her to bake a new cake would have been an impermissible form of coercion, he ruled.
    The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
    A wedding cake, even one without an inscription, “is an artistic expression by the person making it,” Kern County Superior Court Judge David Lampe said Monday in a ruling denying a state agency’s request to require the bakery owner, Cathy Miller, to comply with California’s antidiscrimination law.
    “The state asks this court to compel Miller against her will and religion to allow her artistic expression in celebration of marriage to be co-opted to promote the message desired by same-sex marital partners,” Lampe said. “The right to freedom of speech under the First Amendment outweighs the state’s interest in ensuring a freely accessible marketplace.”

    “Cathy would never discriminate against anyone who walks through her bakery’s doors,” said Charles LiMandri of the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, a religious conservative nonprofit. “She will gladly serve anyone, including same-sex couples.
    “But Cathy will not use her artistic talents to express messages that conflict with her sincerely held religious beliefs about marriage.”

    “…and you should be booed for suggesting that ALL undocumented immigrants fillet teenagers.”

    Not at all… Just this week, I have also seen them peel someone’s face off, hack a woman’s head off with a machete at the throat, and execute a kid at a crowded bus stop in broad daylight.

    Rand Paul is an idiot and not a fiscal conservative. He is in favor of wasteful spending as long as its not on the military. A real scumbag.

  259. jason says:

    Randstanding.

    I like it….

  260. jason says:

    Rand Paul suggested we surrender unilaterally in Afghanistan and hold a parade with the returning troops.

    I suppose it could be called the “Surrender Parade”.

    Headline in San Jose newspaper:

  263. DW says:

    OK, I finished working out the re-vamped NCAA men’s basketball tournament, that resolves all the problems people complain about. Here are some of the complaints:

    1) The four ‘play-in’ teams seem an odd fit and unfair. All the other teams could win a national championship by winning 6 games in a row, but four teams are arbitrarily singled out for having to win 7 in a row.

    2) With only four regions across the map, teams are routinely sent far and wide to balance out the brackets. These teams lose the chance for their fans to travel to watch them play because its too far.

    3) Every year there are solid teams on the bubble that are left out. Just a few years ago a bubble team, Syracuse, barely made it in the tourney, and then they went on to the Final Four.

    4) With the field limited to 68 teams, and the guarantee that every Div 1 conference gets at least one token representative, ever year the 68 teams do NOT represent the best 68 teams in the country, and its not even close.

    5) Its not as though schools save money by not getting into the March Madness tourney because they end up in the NIT tourney and still travel and play in an event few watch or care about.

    6) The tournament cannot be expanded beyond the 68 teams because there is no room at the front of the schedule for a whole extra round of 64 games.

    So here are the solutions:

    1) Get rid of the NIT tournament, and in it’s place…

    2) Expand the NCAA tournament to 128 teams so that for the first time ever it could be said the tournament includes literally the best teams in the country.

    3) To answer objection #6, instead of an extra round in the first week for four regions having teams seeded 1 through 32, keep the first four rounds of the tournament the same, but simply double the number of regions. The same seeding, 1 through 16 would continue, but there would be eight number 1 seeds instead of four. So the first four rounds play out like normal and the extra round is played after in…

    4) The Final Eight. The current Final Four is just three games–over too quickly. It would be awesome to expand this to 7 games, which interestingly is the same number of games possible in the NBA finals or the baseball world series. The current Final Four schedule has two games on Saturday, and then the championship game on Monday. The revamped Final Eight schedule would have four games on Saturday, two games on Sunday, a break on Monday, and the championship game on Tuesday.

    Summary: The entire length of the tournament is stretched only by one day. The capstone event tuned into by the most people is expanded to seven games, which allows for increased exposure to advertising and school promotion, ticket sales, increased economic activity and so forth. The pointless NIT has been done away with so all the basketball played is meaningful. The increase of regions from 4 to 8 means there will be a greater likelihood teams would be able to play their games closer to home. All the teams that are better than the weak conference 15 and 16 seeds get into the tournament, and there is no more need for bubble watching. All of the problems have been resolved, and there is tremendous value added to the final weekend of hoops.

  264. jason says:

    Looks like DW is vying to be NCAA Commissioner.

    Nice platform.

  265. jason says:

    Of course, I laugh when I see an R after Rand Paul’s name too.

  266. jason says:

    Wow… and this despite the MSM running interference for the FBI 24/7.

    “A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 42% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Russia is more likely than the FBI to have meddled in the 2016 presidential race. But 34% now think the FBI is more likely to have meddled in the election, while one-in-four voters (24%) are not sure which was the bigger meddler.”

    He came back after an hour with the above solution, but knowing I was from the future, he leaned in and whispered, “everyone here thinks I am so smart, but really its my chief counselor, an old guy named ‘Walt'”

  270. jason says:

    So was Warner “colluding” with the Russians?

  271. DW says:

    290 – I cannot wait to tell that to my local conservative friend who voted for Warner over Gillespie because Warner was supposedly better for the military.

  272. jason says:

    Redstate refers to Rand Paul’s grandstanding exercise as “Kabuki Theater”

    Perfect.

    This sums it up:

    “The annoyance with Paul was exacerbated by what was viewed as grandstanding: our source pointed out that Paul was offered the budget point of order, which would have given him the time and opportunity to voice his objections without derailing the bill, but he refused. Our source also noted that Paul took time away from the Senate floor to do several cable news hits (we are aware of him appearing on at least Fox News Channel and CNN), instead of continuing to study the bill or discuss his objections with his fellow Senators.

    The fact Paul was offered additional time to speak after the shutdown began at midnight but declined — no longer during prime time television hours — can only add to the frustration.

    Worse, said our source, was their view that Paul hadn’t been as much engaged in the spending fight as he was engaged in publicity opportunities for himself.”

    He didn’t get the troll memo that Ds cannot lose this fall.

  275. jason says:

    According to Ras, 35% strongly approve Trump. That’s pretty astonishing considering the negative coverage 24/7.

    Reagan was regarded as the “Teflon President” but he may have competition.

  276. jason says:

    Why doesn’t the GOP kick out the fake GOP Nazi candidate in IL? There should be a mechanism that keeps someone like that from running under the GOP name.

  277. mnw says:

    jason

    The fault is with the GOP’s own inattentiveness. They had multiple opportunities to put an alternative candidate in the primary, but they didn’t. They also blew the write-in deadline as well.

    I don’t think there is a mechanism to remove a candidate who wins a primary election, nor should there be.

  278. BayernFan says:

    Like what? In Indiana a couple of GOP local candidates were booted nc they voted in the ‘08 primary as part of “Operation Chaos”. Don’t know what the law is in Illinois. Anyway the GOP there didn’t put up another candidate, even knowing apparently that this guy is a perennial candidate and had run before (and was kicked off the ballot by the GOP for not having enough proper signatures). So this time the guy dots all the i’s and the GOP is stuck. It’s their fault. They made their statement in the guy. Now it’s best they STFU.

    Anyone following the Olympics? Just to help in case you are, the Russian hockey team is playing, but they aren’t officially Russia even though the players are Russian. Russia was banned due to the doping scandal, but their players get to play as players from a team somewhere on the Euro-Asian continent. If they win, no flag is raised and no anthem played (take that!).

    What fortitude and courage the Olympic committee had in banning Russia.

  290. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Well this is embarrassing; what is a climate warrior to do?

    “The Pacific nation of Tuvalu—long seen as a prime candidate to disappear as climate change forces up sea levels—is actually growing in size, new research shows.

    A University of Auckland study examined changes in the geography of Tuvalu’s nine atolls and 101 reef islands between 1971 and 2014, using aerial photographs and satellite imagery.
    It found eight of the atolls and almost three-quarters of the islands grew during the study period, lifting Tuvalu’s total land area by 2.9 percent, even though sea levels in the country rose at twice the global average.
    Co-author Paul Kench said the research, published Friday in the journal Nature Communications, challenged the assumption that low-lying island nations would be swamped as the sea rose.”

    “We tend to think of Pacific atolls as static landforms that will simply be inundated as sea levels rise, but there is growing evidence these islands are geologically dynamic and are constantly changing,” he said.

    So, despite predictions by Al Gore and others,
    -The polar ice cap has not melted;
    -Mt Kilimanjaro still has snow on top of it;
    -polars bears have not gone extinct, in fact their numbers have increased (this is now admitted, but it is now claimed they are malnourished)
    -And now, islands that should be sinking are miraculously getting bigger.

    But lets remember, the science is settled.

  291. Chicon says:

    Wes, I’d approve of such a sentence, no problem.

    But it surprises me that a guy who does that can be free by 40+, assuming common good behavior rules (unless it’s a federal court, in which case he could be out when he’s 50). Complete garbage. I’m up for killing him, but he should never walk free again.

I am proud to say I was wrong and that I am more than 90% happy with what he has done as president. (The other 10% mostly relates to the self-imposed damage he causes on Twitter.) I am very pleased with his job and am confident that the House will stay R and the Senate margin will increase by a handful of seats this November. MAGA, baby.

    A comment by Victor Davis Hanson on how badly bias the Mueller investigators were:

    VICTOR DAVIS HANSON February 8, 2018

    “No doubt people talk indiscreetly when they believe their communications are private; perhaps those in an illicit affair may posture and brag about their self-importance and exaggerate.

    All that said, when reading through the latest release of the Page-Strzok archive, one is struck not just that the two who eventually were to investigate Donald Trump did not like Trump, but rather that they utterly loathed him, given their banter back and forth included: “God trump is a loathsome human.” Or “And wow, Donald Trump is an enormous d**che.” Or “And Trump should go f himself.” Or “I am riled up. Trump is a f***ing idiot.”

    It is hard to imagine how the Mueller investigation was not tainted by such venom — or perhaps the hate is better understood as proof that both were uniquely qualified to serve on the Mueller team doing the holy work deemed necessary to save the progressive project.

    And perhaps the two had even more disdain for the supposed white working class who supported this “loathsome human”: e.g., cf., “from buttf*** Texas . . . ” Or “Just went to a southern Virginia Walmart. I could SMELL the Trump support . . . ” Or “Loudon is being gentrified, but it’s still largely ignorant hillbillys [sic].”

    NYT is reporting that the CIA paid Russians $100,000 (in first payement of 1 million) for dirt on Trump during the campaign. Apparently, they’re claiming that they weren’t really after Trump dirt, but were actually trying to buy back “stolen cyber tools”, which makes zero sense at all.

  329. JC says:

    From the NYT

    After months of secret negotiations, a shadowy Russian bilked American spies out of $100,000 last year, promising to deliver stolen National Security Agency cyberweapons in a deal that he insisted would also include compromising material on President Trump, according to American and European intelligence officials.

    The cash, delivered in a suitcase to a Berlin hotel room in September, was intended as the first installment of a $1 million payout, according to American officials, the Russian and communications reviewed by The New York Times. The theft of the secret hacking tools had been devastating to the N.S.A., and the agency was struggling to get a full inventory of what was missing.

    Several American intelligence officials said they made clear that they did not want the Trump material from the Russian — who was suspected of having murky ties to Russian intelligence and to Eastern European cybercriminals. He claimed the information would link the president and his associates to Russia.

    But instead of providing the hacking tools, the Russian produced unverified and possibly fabricated information involving Mr. Trump and others, including bank records, emails and purported Russian intelligence data.

    The United States intelligence officials said they cut off the deal because they were wary of being entangled in a Russian operation to create discord inside the American government. They were also fearful of political fallout in Washington if they were seen to be buying scurrilous information on the president.

    Below is a quote from the NYTs article about American intelligence officers buying compromising information about Trump from a Russian in a Berlin hotel room for one million in cash.

    According to the NYT story, the American intelligence officers actually did not want to buy the compromising Trump information. They were really interested in obtaining cyberweapon information. However, despite making this know, they emerged from the meeting ONLY with the compromising Trump information.

    This is the type of story you expect from an eight year old. Know the NYT has zero credibility, but publishing this story goes below even that.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/09/us/politics/us-cyberweapons-russia-trump.html

    “BERLIN — After months of secret negotiations, a shadowy Russian bilked American spies out of $100,000 last year, promising to deliver stolen National Security Agency cyberweapons in a deal that he insisted would also include compromising material on President Trump, according to American and European intelligence officials.

They were also fearful of political fallout in Washington if they were seen to be buying scurrilous information on the president.”

  341. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    365. Two other excerpts from the NYT article. Keep in mind, the American intelligence officers were not after damaging information about Trump — only cyberweapon information:

    “Late that month, the American businessman delivered the $100,000 payment. Some officials said it was United States government money but routed through an indirect channel.
    A few weeks later, the Russian began handing over data. But in multiple deliveries in October and December, almost all of what he delivered was related to the 2016 election and alleged ties between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia, not the N.S.A. or C.I.A. hacking tools.”

    “Early in the negotiations, for instance, he dropped his asking price from about $10 million to just over $1 million. Then, a few months later, he showed the American businessman a 15-second clip of a video showing a man in a room talking to two women.
    No audio could be heard on the video, and there was no way to verify if the man was Mr. Trump, as the Russian claimed. But the choice of venue for showing the clip heightened American suspicions of a Russian operation: The viewing took place at the Russian Embassy in Berlin, the businessman said.”

    I see Wobbie is back from Bogo Pogo still enamored with fake news.

    Swings and misses? Hardly.

    1. Intelligence community are NAZIs (Partisan yes, Nazi no)
    2. The deep state (you prefer secret society?)
    3. Unmasking (happened)
    4. Evelyn Farkas (admitted surveillance, which we now know did happen)
    5. Susan Rice (still Obama’s designated liar)
    6. Mueller team donated to Democrats (true)
    7. Uranium One (new developments unfolding, stay tuned)
    8. Dossier funding (paid for by the DNC, not disputed)

    Any more fake “hits and misses”?

  347. Tina says:

    Schiff for brains implodes about his memo not being released.

    Well, rosenstein aka swampystein and fbi director, wray, sent a letter explaining why.

    I thought we could not attack rosenstein, remember he is untouchable? And we can not attack the rbi because the jebot said so.

  348. jason says:

    They should be able to throw whomever leaked it in jail.

  349. Tina says:

    Lol, the jebot came back and argued the whole fbi corruption is unfair and a swing and miss.

    Ok, lol.

    50 percent believe the fbi acted criminally against trump. This based largely on one nunes memo.

    But ok.

  350. jason says:

    Sessions should appoint a special counsel to investigate all this.

    I am sure the Dems and Wobbie won’t object, after all there was no evidence of any collusion when the first special counsel was appointed, so what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

    Let’s have “dueling counsels”.

    Following on Trump’s idea on deregulation, the second counsel could have a twofer policy “for each person indicted by Mueller, we will indict two”.

  351. Tina says:

    The second counsel is neeeded, but not duelling,

    The second counsel woukd supersede mukehead who is wasting time on unrelated tax matters and perjury traps.

    Above all, we need to clear out the doj, fbi corruption and get answers to how the russians interferd in the election, if they did,

  352. jason says:

    ‘”the viewing took place at the Russian Embassy in Berlin, the businessman said.”

    I thought the Russians were intent on destroying Hillary?

  353. Tina says:

    If I were trump, no testimony to the sc.

    Indicate to mulehead that the sc was tasked to investigate an unsoecified crime and without indications of a crime, there is no testimony.

    Emphasize the firing of comedy was due to his lies and comedy wanting to hold the threat of a phantom investigation over him, look at all the abuses we uncivered under comedy.

  354. Tina says:

    I still think it is strange re mukehead

    Strange trump woukd meet him the day before the sp appt. to discuss the fbi position, a position mukehead would not be eligible for, he served ine, ten year term and coukd not serve again.

    Mulehead hires all drats and the drats are corrupt, see pete the cheat and the mistress.

  355. Wobbles says:

    “Has Jason, HHR’s biggest fraud, donated to good ole Roy Moore’s legal defense fund since the accusations were clearly a smear effort?”

    Yes, the 40 yr old allegations surfaced at the tail end of the Senate campaign, against a man that had been in the limelight in AL for decades.

    But the timing was just a coincidence, nothing political. What did I call it, “reporting”?

  356. jason says:

    mphasize the firing of comedy was due to his lies and comedy wanting to hold the threat of a phantom investigation over him, look at all the abuses we uncivered under comedy.”

    Why say that? He could give any reason he wants, true. He could say he didn’t like his cologne. He didn’t need a reason. But saying he fired him for threatening an investigation just fuels the fire.

    He should say “I fired him because I no longer had confidence in him”.

  357. jason says:

    he second counsel is neeeded, but not duelling,”

    It was a joke.

    What a guy….

    “SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A man in the United States illegally was convicted Friday of killing two Northern California deputies in a case that helped fuel the national immigration debate.

    Luis Bracamontes was found guilty of murder in the shootings of Sacramento County sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer County sheriff’s Detective Michael Davis Jr. in 2014. He also was convicted of attempted murder, carjacking, weapons violations and other crimes.

    “Yay,” he said softly after first verdict read, looking around at the victims’ families and jurors with a slight smile.

    “I’m going to kill more cops soon,” Bracamontes said later as he was led away from the courtroom that had heavy security.

    Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Bracamontes, who has repeatedly blurted out in court that he killed the deputies and wished he had killed more. The penalty phase of his trial starts March 5.

    Bracamontes is a Mexican citizen who repeatedly entered the United States illegally.

    Bracamontes has shouted in court that he is guilty and asked to be put to death. He has threatened to kill his defense attorneys and more deputies, and once had to be restrained after the judge ruled that he can’t fire his lawyers.”

  359. jason says:

    There should be an option where if you get the death penalty and you then ask to be executed, all appeals are forfeited and the execution can proceed.

    “During Monday’s news briefing, Yahoo News White House correspondent Hunter Walker posed a race-baiting question to Sanders.

    “The president has repeatedly touted black unemployment when faced with allegations of racism,” Walker began. “Given those numbers, the low black unemployment, why do you think so many in the African-American community are still so uncomfortable with the president?

    Sanders quickly admitted she wasn’t qualified to give an accurate answer on behalf of the black community, saying, “That’s a question you would have to ask them.”

    DW & Wes

    Interesting to contrast the discussion of Nolan’s (D-MN) retirement at RRH with that at Powerline (Powerline is 4 Minnesota lawyers, basically.)

    The general consensus at RRH is that the GOP is a 10-1 underdog to win the now open seat. That’s my interpretation, anyway. The Powerline guys, however, say it represents an extremely promising GOP pickup opportunity.

    Fwiw, I find the Powerline discussion far better written & more persuasive. RRH is all in on the blue wave, just like Wobbles & all the other trolls (assuming there’s more than one). There is a groupthink thing going on at RRH, imo: “I love Big Brother! No, I love Big Brother more than you! I love Big Brother three times more than either of you! Blue wave Blue wave Blue wave!”

    Btw, Rdel continues to be a voice of reason at RRH. Of all the posters who have left here, I miss Rdel the most.

    The Trump added value is the chill attitude towards child molestation and spousal abuse.

    Thank goodness we finally elected a president willing to defend wife beaters and child molesters. Middle aged white men who finger young girls or beat the crap out of their wives deserve a voice too.

    During the 2016 campaign, Trump (the hero of HHR) falsely accused Ted Cruz’s dad of taking part in the JFK assassination, but let’s not get bogged down with facts, right.

    – Got any awesome conspiracy theories for me?

  370. Robbie says:

    I have to admit. I was wrong about the Devin Nunes memo. It totally changed the conversation. Everyone finally admitted the FBI was corrupt and part of a deep state conspiracy to take down one of the most honest and decent men to ever hold elected office, Donald Trump. On top of that, everyone suddenly realized that Mueller’s investigation was unneeded and he was fired.

    Oh wait, none of that happened. The “but muh memo” effort failed just like all of the other chaff Trump and his idiot supporters have deployed.

  371. Chicon says:

    I stand corrected.

    Crazy Robbie….

    Must be a proud moment for you to defend a president who supports a guy who molested a 14 year old girl and a guy who supports a man who beat the crap out of two former wives.
