    “unhinged”? Ya think?

    I believe all the trolls are probably one and the same… except for the Kindergarden (sic) Kid. He’s unique— most likely to shoot up a school or something.

    Ever check out any of his 2:30am rants?

    The regular trolls are Paul, Proud ObamaCON, PeteWilson, Messy….

    If you add up all their IQs you might get to 150.

  3. jason says:

    We used to have smarter trolls.

    These trolls are from the bottom of troll pool.

  4. lisab says:

    cnn reported today that there were

    FOUR

    deputies standing outside the school who did not go in.

    now while i don’t blame a single officer not going in against someone with a ar-15 armed with a pistol

    FOUR is bad.

    teams of four are common in clearing buildings.

  7. jason says:

    Messy can’t even spell, doesn’t even seem to have a grade school education.

    It’s a poor reflection on HHR the trolls are so ignorant.

    PeteWilson has a vocabulary that’s probably limited to less than 200 words, he posts the same idiocies over and over.

  15. lisab says:

    mercs against actual usa military backed by artillery and airstrikes is not much of a battle.

    the russians have nukes … but everything else they have is basically cannon fodder.

    they have the technology, they just don’t have the money to seriously threaten the usa outside of eastern europe.

    china is the greater threat militarily. their subs are good now, and they have missiles that can take out our fleet given the right circumstances.

    taiwan would probably be toast if they seriously attacked it.

  16. lisab says:

    “but everything else they have is basically cannon fodder.”

    just to be clear … it is not that they don’t have top notch tanks and artillery and such, they do, they just can not reallly match our coordination outside eastern europe

  17. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Great post by lisab from prior thread. Thank you for posting it.

    “86. Wobbie’s idiotic position reminds me of the notice on the bulletin board of the company cafeteria.
    ——————————–
    or … there are evil people out there who want to shoot you
    so vote for us and we will take away your guns”

  18. lisab says:

    just to be clear …

    i don’t think the second amendment is sacrosanct

    the government regulates how fast we can drive and how much chlorine can be in our drinking water …

    i am perfectly happy with putting some restrictions on guns. i think a waiting period and a background check is perfectly reasonable.

    what i object to … is that we actually have laws on the books that are not enforced, and certainly not not even handedly.

    from a lockean point of view, if you want to ban guns, fine … i am ok with that. get enough congressmen and senators and states to change the constitution.

    i don’t own a gun, don’t want a gun, have never touched a modern gun — i have fired a musket — i certainly don’t want teachers to carry guns … unless they are former military and have training

    but as a lockean follow the laws. elections have consequences.

  19. lisab says:

    “i certainly don’t want teachers to carry guns”

    in fairness, my school has cops 60 seconds away and we have secure doors and such so my school is safer than most

    Jebot,

  21. Wobbles says:

    Is Pence President yet?

    Do you know he won’t eat alone with women and is reputed to hate gays? We cannot allow this wingnut to hijack the party and the country.

    We need to get Jeb to run for the House and get him elected speaker, so that he will be President when we impeach Pence.

  22. mnw says:

    I don’t think Wobbles would care for President Pence at all. Better stick with the devil you know, Wobbles.

  23. NYCmike says:

    I did not realize that the gun free zones was a law only made recently, in 1990.

    Another Bush mistake!

  24. jason says:

    i don’t think the second amendment is sacrosanct”

    I do.

    You can forfeit rights, like life (you can be executed) and liberty (you can be jailed)… the right to vote (if you are a felon) etc., so you can forfeit your right to bear arms too.

    The definition of sacrosanct is:

    [especially of a principle, place, or routine] regarded as too important or valuable to be interfered with”

    I think the words “shall not be infringed” would fit that definition.

  25. jason says:

    I don’t think Wobbles would care for President Pence at all.”

    He wouldn’t.

    You can bet he would start doing his usual a la Romney and a la Rubio and a la Trump attacks the instant Pence became President.

    Like everyone else, Wobbie’s problem with him would be that his name is not Jeb Bush.

    The amoral scum is now pretending to like Pence when in the past he thought him to be a rabid right wing nut job.

  26. mnw says:

    Pence would likely be just like Trump, only without the tweets & the bimbos.

  27. MichiganGuy says:

    Actually Pence likes to tweet too.

  28. jason says:

    taiwan would probably be toast if they seriously attacked it.”

    Except they don’t want burnt toast, they want buttered toast ready to eat.

    A destroyed Taiwan is of no use to China.

    Taiwan is the 7th largest economy in Asia and the 15th in the world, with a GDP four times that of China.

    Destroying it in a war so they would just now have another 25 million mouths to feed is not in China’s interest.

    China wants Taiwan to drop into its hands like ripe fruit.

  32. Jeff G. says:

    mnw,

    It says everything you need to know about libs that they mock as a character flaw Mike Pence’s prudence in not placing himself in compromising situations.

  33. jason says:

    Actually ideologically Wobbie is much closer to Trump than he is to Pence. Wobbie always hated socons.

    It just shows the hypocrisy and the fact that in the end it has nothing to do with ideology, policy, behavior, etc.

  34. DW says:

    35 – exactly. The late Billy Graham had the same ‘flaw’ of never allowing himself to be alone with a woman who was not his wife.

    I guess the media wishes Graham had turned out ‘right’ just like Jimmy Swaggart.

  35. jason says:

    I’m sorry but this is 2016 and having dinner with a woman alone is not “putting yourself in a compromising situation”.

    That being said I am not a liberal and I don’t mock Pence for it. I just personally think its an antiquated idea.

    Yes, there is an inherent risk that a woman will come out of the dinner and falsely accuse you of something, but there is a risk of food poisoning too.

  38. DW says:

    38 – understood. And the flip side of that is the truth that if someone is determined to sin, one no doubt can find a way to follow the Pence rule and circumvent it.

    But I think most mis-understand the Pence rule…I think he follows it as a general rule. There are always going to be situations that come up.

  39. jason says:

    Lynn is a philanthropic entrepreneur.

    Looks like his business is mainly decorating homes of very wealthy people.

    I know a woman federal magistrate (senior status), in her late 60s, a great grandmother, who still won’t go into a bar unescorted, because she was brought up to believe that it “looks bad.”

    I don’t see that as being any different than what Pence does.

  43. MichiganGuy says:

    “A Morning Consult survey of 2,201 U.S. adults conducted Feb. 23-25 found increases in negative views of businesses that severed ties with the NRA after consumers learned of them. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.

    MetLife Inc., the insurance giant that ended a discount for NRA members last week, had a 45 percent favorable rating, compared to a 12 percent unfavorable rating, before survey participants were informed of that move. After learning of it, respondents with an unfavorable view of the company doubled to 24 percent, while its favorability rating was unchanged.

    Among Republicans, the firm’s favorability ratings flipped after participants learned of the decision regarding the NRA. Beforehand, 50 percent of Republicans said they had a favorable view of the company, compared to 10 percent with an unfavorable view. After being informed of MetLife’s decision, the ratings changed to 29 percent favorable and 44 percent unfavorable.”

    It’s not. But it kind of proves my point that’s a very antiquated concept.

    So I guess I will go back to Enterprise since its cheaper.

  50. jason says:

    Wobbie is very proud Manafort and Gates got caught up in these charges that have nothing to do with Trump or collusion.

    Frankly, if “they would have not been charged if Trump had lost the election” sucks. It seems like they are being singled out just because they were associated with Trump.

    Politico

    “These days, a money launderer has to be either very stupid or very unlucky to get caught.

    In fact, data suggest the U.S. government’s efforts to enforce America’s money-laundering laws fail 99.9 percent of the time. As financial crime expert Raymond Baker notes, “Total failure is just a decimal point away.”

    All of which makes it all the more surprising that Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman and his deputy, got busted last week. Special counsel Robert Mueller accused Manafort, with Gates’ help, of laundering approximately $30 million—an effort that, according to the indictment, began years ago but continued through their time on the Trump presidential campaign. The charges do not involve the president or his campaign.

    Had Trump lost the election, Manafort and Gates might have gotten away with their alleged crimes. But now they’re caught up in Mueller’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, and they have the misfortune of being pursued by skilled and motivated prosecutors with deep expertise in financial crimes and almost unlimited resources. Mueller’s team includes Andrew Weissmann, who no less than former White House strategist Steve Bannon has reportedly dubbed “the LeBron James of money-laundering investigations.”

  51. jason says:

    52. LOL

  52. jason says:

    Maybe, as Wobbie thinks, the charges were only filed so Manafort or Gates would “cooperate” and accuse Trump of something.

    More likely its to show some results for the investigation.

    If that is the case, Manafort and Gates are truly unlucky.

  53. mnw says:

    From what I’ve read about Manafort and the Russian-sponsored puppet govt of Ukraine, he really should be in federal prison.

  54. mnw says:

    I don’t understand why Trump publicly criticizes Sessions, instead of just giving him an order.

    I really don’t get that at all. You don’t need to argue with a subordinate serving at will.

  55. Bitterlaw says:

    Enterprise and Hertz rent horses now?

  56. mnw says:

    PBS is starting a “conservative talk show, “ co-hosted by one Michael Gershon… who doesn’t like Trump. I guess they couldn’t get David Brooks or Bill Kristol.

    -Personally, I believe those “criticisms” are orchestrated to feign division within……..OR……..maybe Trump is really batsh*t crazy!

    🙂

  58. NYCmike says:

    “I’m sorry but this is 2016 and having dinner with a woman alone is not “putting yourself in a compromising situation”.”

    -The word “alone” means, to some people, WITHOUT WITNESSES……..which could be likened to “a compromising situation”.

    Does “alone” translate differently in A-Hole?

  59. NYCmike says:

    ” I guess they couldn’t get David Brooks or Bill Kristol.”

    -Those 2 were on a cruise to Poco Loco.

  60. Jeff G. says:

    38. Jason,

    I agree. For regular people, it’s not a big deal, assuming you are not married to an insane woman or have not have given her other cause to be suspicious. But for someone in Mike Pence’s position, having a private dinner with a woman who is not his wife or a family member is a “compromising position.” And the MSM would run full tilt with the story even without any real evidence, especially if a conservative Republican is the target.

  61. NYCmike says:

    “And the MSM would run full tilt with the story even without any real evidence, especially if a conservative Republican is the target.”

    -Not sure how jason doesn’t get this, as he is usually very cognizant of how the mainstream media works when conservatives are involved.

  62. NYCmike says:

    https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/kentucky-governor-need-element-unknown-guns-secretly-school-staff/

    -Robbie and “CG” should come out against such a statement…after all, it is their hero’s Dad who signed the bill into law…..I guess “Read My Lips….” was just 1 of his screw-ups.

    If only Reagan had chosen a different VP….what could have been…..

  63. Bitterlaw says:

    You can be a conservative. You can hate Trump. You can be relieved that Trump beat Clinton. All three can be true.

    I may have to apply to PBS.

    “You can be a “conservative”.”

    -PBS has a different definition for this word, even from you.

    They would NOT hire you.

  65. Mr.Vito says:

    I have the same position in guns as lisab in #20.

    -I was reading this, and only linked to it, because of one of the commenters….EX-GOPJohnT Federalist……he must know Robbie and “CG”!

  67. NYCmike says:

    “i don’t think the second amendment is sacrosanct”

    -Of course it is not. The citizens of this country could pass an amendment to ban guns……there is a procedure written out in the Constitution.

    Hopefully, all Democrats will run on doing just that…..

  68. Trump says:

    Shooting at a school in Dalton, Georgia by a teacher. Probably a liberal just trying to tarnish Trump’s brilliant idea of arming teachers. Libs will stoop at nothing.

  69. NYCmike says:

    Chicon,

    I think Robbie and “CG” were planning on posting that later.

  70. Bitterlaw says:

    Trump’s checks to Schumerand Hillary prove that he is not a conservative. I do not believe in redemption.

  71. dblaikie says:

    In reading this threads posts I would like to throw a couple of things into the midst. Trump, even though Sessions was the first major pol to support him, would shed no tears if he resigned. Perhaps I am wrong and if so I know that I will be corrected quickly, but wouldn’t the new AG take over from Rosenstein concerning the Special Counsel? The President would like that.

    Concerning Billy Graham’s rule of never being alone with a woman we need to remember that he was trying to avoid the pitfalls which destroyed Evangelists before him. In addition to his rule about women he also had zero tolerance for alcohol and ruled that all money coming into the Ministry had to be governed by an independent board. These were prudent and good policies that made the Billy Graham Ministries head and shoulders above his peers many of which fell into disrepute.

    Pence is not an Evangelist. However integrity is always tied to your faithfulness to your convictions and beliefs.

  72. SoHope says:

    not being alone with a woman without a witness is a common practice in christian circles with pastors. In an age of corruption and such in isn’t a horrible practice to live above reproach and be un-accusable.

  73. SoHope says:

    its the equivalent of telling your spouse your social media passwords.

  74. NYCmike says:

    “he also had zero tolerance for alcohol”

    -I also of zero tolerance…..wasting good, drinkable alcohol is unforgivable!

  75. NYCmike says:

    “of” = have

    Lauren Fox
    ?@FoxReports

    GOP Senate aide tells me after Trump meeting: “It feels very much like nobody briefed the President before this meeting, which ended up being a grab-bag of Democrat priorities, instead of an effort to bring people together on proposals that actually have momentum.”

  97. CG says:

    I am surmising because he found it funny based on the substance and the realization that if it were a direct quote from a Democrat, you and many others here would be up in arms about it and how un-American such a thing is.

    But because Trump said it, you think its a great idea.

  98. Robbie says:

    NYCmike back to the laughable trope that Trump is Reagan I see.

  99. Tina says:

    He has taken a middle approach to guns and daca, knowing full well that the drats and jebots would react against it and want full amnesty or full gun ban.

    Btw, can we jail the oakland, ca mayor. The ice raid would have been more succesful if she did not obstruct justice.

  100. Robbie says:

    I laughed at the comment by Trump because he has repeatedly told us he’s best president ever on guns. Then to impress the cameras and look like he’s being tough, he all but says “screw due process, just take the guns”.

    What’s next? Hanging first and then the trial?

  101. Tina says:

    Funny thing about sessions and horowitz, the investigation was launched in 1/17, and expanded in may of 17, and is now concluding.

    There will be arrests.

  102. Robbie says:

    If you want to see what an apologists looks like, just read Tinfoil Tina’s comments.

    If Obama had said, “take the guns and worry about due process later”, she’d be demanding that Obama be impeached and removed from office.

    But when her dear orange leader says this nonsense, Tina calls it the middle road. Yeah, Tina, who reads Jim Hoft religiously, has always favored the middle road.

With no evidence of abuse, only explanation is political pressure. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/968856971075051521

    s I have long said, Jason Fraud, Trump has a story to tell, but he chooses not to tell it.”

    No, its you who chooses not to tell it.

    Poster are here every day talking about Trump’s accomplishments, of which there are many.

    YOU are here to talk about Sarah Palin, Roy Moore, Mika’s face, Stormy Daniels.

    Who is not telling the story that benefits the country?

    YOU.

    Funny thing about sessions and horowitz, the investigation was launched in 1/17, and expanded in may of 17, and is now concluding.

    There will be arrests.

    – LOL. Just like you thought Hillary was the focus of Mueller’s investigation.

    Sessions launched this waste of time investigation to get Trump off his back and Trump still treats him like a whipping boy.

  107. Tina says:

    Muh mika, muh face, muh porn star, muh russian hoax.

    Muh muh muh.

  108. Tina says:

    Funny tou thought there was russian trump collusion.

  109. Tina says:

    Schiff is russian so he needs to be investigated.

    I actuakky want tax miney back,

    He just leaks and does 267 cn nd n interviews,

  110. Chicon says:

    107 – it is the Heritage Foundation saying Trump’s achievements have been more conservative than Reagan’s. Have you heard of them?

  111. Tina says:

    Told you the strategery and schiff for brains fell for it.

    Lol

  112. Robbie says:

    The unqualified 29 year old fashion intern who was laughably made comms director is resigning.

    I guess it wasn’t so smart for her to say she occasionally tells white lies for Trump.

  113. Tina says:

    Bush is a democrat.

  114. NYCmike says:

    “But because Trump said it, you think its a great idea.”

    -You are wrong.

    Trump is wrong to say that.

    AND, please let me know when any person or agency in his administration ACTS on those words, and you will see plenty of upset CONSERVATIVES.

    Until then, it is just words.

  115. Robbie says:

    Tina says:
    February 28, 2018 at 4:31 pm
    Funny tou thought there was russian trump collusion.

    – Bless your heart.

    You thought Mike Flynn would never cut a deal.

    You said no one would ever be indicted.

  116. Chicon says:

    123 – Robbie’s a conservative and he’s already mad! /s….had my fingers crossed typing this…..

  117. NYCmike says:

    “NYCmike back to the laughable trope that Trump is Reagan I see.”

    -My link to Reagan was inspired by Bitterlaw’s comment, which I posted above the link. DID YOU NOTICE THAT, or are you just practicing to make sure your brain doesn’t work?

  118. Tina says:

    Muh moore, muh porn star, muh russian, muh hicks,

  119. Tina says:

    Bless your heart wrote basement boy when the supply of neespapers ran out.

  120. NYCmike says:

    “You said no one would ever be indicted.”

    -When did Tina say this?

    NOBODY said this. Thousands of laws, there is always one that they will get someone on.

  121. CG says:

    I wonder if Hope Hicks will be going on the next Celebrity Big Brother.

  122. NYCmike says:

    “I laughed at the comment by Trump because he has repeatedly told us he’s best president ever on guns. Then to impress the cameras and look like he’s being tough, he all but says “screw due process, just take the guns”.”

    -I look at that comment as WRONG.

    I also look at that comment as one which will be repeated by “suburban soccer moms” over and over, and they will like HEARING it.

    This is an election year……..do you WANT Republicans to do well, or lose the House, the Senate, or BOTH?

  123. Tina says:

    Bill Kristol
    @BillKristol
    Fox in the old days: We’re proud of our military, they deserve the best equipment.

    Fox nowadays: Let’s denigrate our military for the sake of promoting Trump’s WALL. (link: https://twitter.com/foxnews/status/968908190778785792) twitter.com/foxnews/status…

    The socialist son is realky dumb. Is his inner socialist caling him again?

  124. NYCmike says:

    Robbie and “CG” here again, TOGETHER.

  125. Tina says:

    He laughed because his drats want a full gun ban

    Just like same drats want full amnesty.

    Trump has taken a third way approach to both knowing drats would blow it all up, as they did with daca aka legalize adults.

  126. Jeff G. says:

    I agree that President Trump should not have made that statement about due process. It seems to contradict his signing H.J. Res. 40, which repealed an SSA regulation that would have done just that – take away firearms from certain senior citizens without due process.

  127. NYCmike says:

    Robbie, the CHAMPION OF DUE PROCESS.

    Tell me again about the due process by which you convicted Roy Moore (and please note – I do not know, nor have I ever said, if he is innocent or guilty)……..

  128. CG says:

    131. So the correct and winning strategy to win votes, per NYCMike is for Republicans to try to sound like Democrats.

    Got it. Hillary-Lite ’18!

  129. NYCmike says:

    ” It seems to contradict his signing H.J. Res. 40″

    -“CG”, Robbie,

    Saying vs “signing”.

    Study the difference, tonight.

  130. CG says:

    133. You are so silly.

    You go out of your way to ask questions of me on here in order to solicit my opinion, and then you whine and complain when I show up.

  131. CG says:

    I wasn’t aware that Roy Moore was locked up or had his guns or his horse taken away.

  132. CG says:

    Due process did twice kick Roy Moore off the bench though.

  133. Jeff G. says:

    From another point of view, however, what Trump is advocating may not really be properly termed a denial of due process if the person’s mental capacity has already been adjudicated in a court of law or by an equivalent process. Either way, he got ahead of himself and said something that on its face is not a good conservative position.

  134. Jeff G. says:

    #138 NYCmike,

    It did cross my mind to punctuate that comment in No. 135 with a notation of words vs. actions. I did not. Thank you for pointing that out on your own.

  135. NYCmike says:

    #137 – 🙂

    Well done.

    NOW, get home and study the difference between WORDS and ACTIONS.

  136. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    BREAKING: Hope Hicks has tendered her resignation and it has been accepted.

  137. NYCmike says:

    “and then you whine and complain when I show up.”

    -Taking notice = “whine and complain”.

    GOT IT!

    “CG” continues his transformation into Author at his very steady pace.

  138. CG says:

    So, words vs. action.

    Jeb Bush had a staunchly and unabashedly conservative record for eight years as Governor of Florida and any objective analysis of his Presidential campaign platform would show it was also very conservative, but because he used the term “act of love”, he was disqualified and a Hillary-Lite liberal.

    I know, I know, I just invited 5000 posts claiming that Jeb Bush is the only reason that any conservative might ever oppose Donald Trump.

  139. NYCmike says:

    No problem, Jeff G.

    I have asked “CG” to read Scott Adam’s articles for the last year, because he has noticed that “phenomenon” right from the start.

    BUT, “CG” REFUSES to read sources which contradict his own, and also have been shown to be correct, at least for the past 2 years.

  140. Chicon says:

    Unless Trump and Sessions were acting together today, the Tweet about the FISA investigation and Sessions was childish and wrong.

    I’ll still vote for his reelection.

  141. NYCmike says:

    HEH!

    JEB!2016!

  142. Chicon says:

    Still no response by Robbie to yesterday’s “drop the mic” broadside by Jason, which I re-posted in 113 above.

    I understand…there is no effective response.

  143. Tina says:

    An act of kove is not a conservative position,

  144. Tina says:

    Jeb bush ran as hillbot.

  145. Tina says:

    Can we get the full quote, i am about to take off on a ferry. I know i am not going to pogo loco and there is no chance of me getting a drink on the Lido Deck and meeting the cruize director, the socialist son

  146. Chicon says:

    147 – nope. JEB! just proved to be a surprisingly poor candidate, and running a poor campaign portends a poor Administration.

  147. SoHope says:

    I’m not against a temporary gun confiscation for people that there’s obviously a problem with but it’s hard too quickly act based on the tools they currently have (something like 7 days followed by a court hearing). Kind of like temporary restraining orders you get your day in court but it.

  148. SoHope says:

    …but it prevents people from doing anything in that short term until they can gather evidence and have the hearing.

  149. NYCmike says:

    SoHope,

    After 40+ cals to the house, plus a private citizen calling the FBI unsolicited with information about internet postings……….I kinda think that the justice system would be within their rights to take away the killers guns.

  150. NYCmike says:

    I feel badly for JEB!2016. After Dubya left under the circumstance he did, the BUSH name itself was a YUGE issue. I am pretty sure Jeb himself thought that when he said he would NOT run.

    Then, after their “benefactors” pushed him, he jumped in, but I don’t think his heart was ever into it.

    IF it was, then he truly was a HORRIBLE CANDIDATE, especially at this time.

  151. Paul says:

    133: I’m here too. Just eating popcorn and enjoying the show today. We are all very different people. We just happen to work the same shift in Soros’ basement.

  152. Tina says:

    How much are the guac bowls?

  153. Redmen4ever says:

    just get a FISA warrant and take the damn gun … why should some pimply-faced high school kid have any more rights than anybody else?

  154. Messy57 says:

    53. Not unlucky, from all reports, had Trump lost, they’d be wearing cement shoes at the bottom of New York bay. The Russian mob was quite pissed off at them.

  155. Mr.Vito says:

    I supported Jeb running. It became clear before summer ended that hardly anyone outside the political bubble wanted a third Bush president. If it weren’t ‘act of love,’ it would have been any number of things people jumped on to justify voting for someone other than him.

    It isn’t that different from the general… people were ready to jump on any excuse not to vote for Hillary.

    In the end, he was just ice skating uphill.

  156. Messy57 says:

    Hope Hicks, no relation to Bill, is a victim of total burnout. Sad.

  157. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    133: “I’m here too. Just eating popcorn and enjoying the show today. We are all very different people. We just happen to work the same shift in Soros’ basement.”

    Be sure to work hard Paul, and meet your quota. You don’t want to end up working in one of Soro’s coal mines. Although at least you would have the satisfaction of knowing the coal mine was owned by one of the of Earth’s most renowned climate activist.

  158. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    What am seeing is that John Kelly is continuing to consolidate his control of the White House, and it appears he is doing so with the full support of President Trump.

  159. Tina says:

    Kelly is doing a great job.

  160. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    @realDonaldTrump @SenatorWicker of Mississippi has been a great supporter and incredible help in getting our massive Tax Cut Bill done and approved. Also big help on cutting regs. I am with him in his re-election all the way!

    No Roy Moore repeat.

  161. NYCmike says:

    Robbie will miss that tweet about Wicker.

  162. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – You admitted many times that Trump is not a conservative or a Republican. Did you forget?

  163. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    What is your point? Trump always played all sides, whichever benefited him the mo$t. Very simple.

    The question for us NOW is this: How has he governed?

    I still don’t trust him, but if he continues to do what he did in the past year, he will have my vocal support, as he should of any voter who claims to be a proponent of a smaller, more limited federal government.

  164. Chicon says:

    Bitter, if Trump continues to govern as he has to date for the rest of his term(s), will he be considered to have been a conservative President?

  165. NYCmike says:

    Have to say…..if the Democrats had accused Trump of collusion with Russia, and used Hope Hicks as the main Russian agent, I would have agreed with them!

    She is one smokin’ “Russkie”, if she had to play the part!

  166. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw to do his best Buzz Lightyear imitation and say he will hate Trump into eternity and beyond in 3….2……1…..

  167. NYCmike says:

    For what reason does Bitterlaw have to tell us that at least once a day?

  168. lisab says:

    9-year-old with autism arrested for fighting back against bullies

    Sunday, October 29, 2017
    FRANKLIN, Indiana (KTRK) — A father in Indiana released video of his 9-year-old son being arrested at his elementary school.

    Ronnie Shepherd says his son, who has autism, was defending himself against bullies who hit him on the playground, WRTV reports.

    “He’s watched the video several times. He still talks about it. He’s pretty traumatized over the whole ordeal. Any 9-year-old that’s being arrested, they don’t know what’s going on,” said Shepperd.

    But the police chief said the student was arrested for battering another student, as well as two teachers.

    The child was charged as a juvenile with battery and criminal mischief. Those charges were later dropped.

    NYC doesn’t trust Trump but I should annoint him as a conservative? Got it.

  170. lisab says:

    i don’t think the second amendment is sacrosanct”

    I do.

    You can forfeit rights, like life (you can be executed) and liberty (you can be jailed)… the right to vote (if you are a felon) etc., so you can forfeit your right to bear arms too.

    The definition of sacrosanct is:

    [especially of a principle, place, or routine] regarded as too important or valuable to be interfered with”

    I think the words “shall not be infringed” would fit that definition.
    ———————————————-

    i think we are a democracy and if at some point the voters choose to eliminate the second amendment via their elected officials using the processes outlined in the constitution

    then i am fine with removing the amendment.

    which is not to say that i would vote for removing the amendment

    just that i support our democratic process

  171. NYCmike says:

    “NYC doesn’t trust Trump but I should annoint him as a conservative? Got it.”

  209. Bitterlaw says:

    Fiber? I will check the coke can but I doubt it is in there.

    It is a comedic routine between trump and sessions.

    Sessions is acting, but is not publicly stating what he is doing.

  211. CG says:

    Just a couple quick things-

    1. Irving Kristol and Gertrude Himmelfarb, one time Socialists, would go on to become two of the most prominent conservative thinkers in the country.

    2. Jeb Bush adopted a campaign logo of “Jeb!” dating back to his first run for Governor in 1994 and used it in his next two successful races for Governor as well.

    WV TEACHER STRIKE UPDATE….

    Union leaders (AFT and WVEA) were given authority by the 55 local county groups to negotiate for them

    Union leaders negotiate and get a
    –5% pay raise for teachers and 3% for service personnel

    Previously, the legislature/governor has already:
    –put freeze on current PEIA health insurance premiums, copays etc. for 17 months,
    –creation of a task force to delve into a long term”fix” for health insurance cost
    –put $29MM more put into PEIA immediately
    –pssed legislation to take 20% of every annual budget surplus and put into PEIA
    –passed legislation to allow sports betting and use that revenue generated for PEIA
    ***********************************

    Union bosses and governor tell teachers that strike is over, go back to work on Thursday (after allowing a cooling off period for Wed. where schools were still closed).

    Rank and file teachers in the 55 counties tell union leaders who agreed to these things to GFThemselves and over 50 of the 55 counties have taken votes to continue to close schools and refuse to go to work on Thursday…maybe Friday….maybe longer…

    The teachers do not trust:
    –their own union leaders
    –the WV governor
    –the legislature

    New pay raise bill has passed House today, sent to State Senate where they will take it up tomorrow.
    Teachers/service personnel say they will not go back to work until bill is actually passed by Senate and signed by governor….other teachers saying they will not go back until other this or that…

    In some of the counties, the bus drivers are votng overwhelmingly to keep schools closed…so there is no way to get kids to school….

    I know gun shops that will not sell to anyone below 21 years of age. I came from an NRA family and got my first rifle at about age 10, but I was thoroughly trained and supervised. My feeling is anyone below 21 should not be able to buy a gun unless they have attended a gun safety course, and have someone over 21 attest that they will supervise the minor’s use of the gun.

    Bitter, if Trump continues to govern as he has to date for the rest of his term(s), will he be considered to have been a conservative President?”

    No

    I know, he didn’t ask me, but I love answering easy questions.

    I don’t support the 21 age to buy guns, just like I don’t support the 21 drinking age.

    You can go to Afghanistan for 3 years, get married, have kids, but you can’t buy a gun or have a beer.

  221. lisab says:

    i don’t know why the wv teachers are striking, but i imagine it is because wv pays its teachers one of the lowest salaries — not the lowest — in the usa.

    the basic problem is that west virginia’s welfare benefits is about $25000 per year, but starting teacher salary is $32,000 per year

    so you can stay home and watch the view and make almost as much as being a new teacher.

    As has been said: “America wasn’t designed to be safe. America was designed to be free.”

    “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” — Thomas Jefferson`s “Commonplace Book,” 1774-1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764

    Samuel Adams, of Massachusetts: “The said Constitution [shall] be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms.” — Massachusetts` U.S. Constitution ratification convention, 1788

    Believe Trump just blew up several hundred Russian mercenaries in Syria. Compare that with Obama’s lame record. Putin knew he could take advantage of Obama’s passivity.

    From the American Spector:

    “But not everything is relative; we should not slip into collective amnesia over the Obama Administration’s weak and underwhelming response to Russian aggression. Throughout his presidency, Obama consistently underestimated the challenge posed by Putin’s regime. His foreign policy was firmly grounded in the premise that Russia was not a national security threat to the United States. In 2012, Obama disparaged Mitt Romney for exaggerating the Russian threat—“the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years,” Obama quipped. This breezy attitude prevailed even as Russia annexed Crimea, invaded eastern Ukraine, intervened in Syria, and hacked the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Obama’s response during these critical moments was cautious at best, and deeply misguided at worst. Even the imposition of sanctions on Russia for its invasion of Ukraine was accompanied by so much propitiation and restraint elsewhere that it didn’t deter Russia from subsequent aggression, including the risky 2016 influence operation in the United States. Obama, confident that history was on America’s side, for the duration of his time in office underestimated the damaging impact Russia could achieve through asymmetric means.”

    During his interview with CNN Sunday, Sheriff Israel refused to blame the shooting on a 2013 PROMISE agreement Broward County made with the Department of Education that ended school-based arrests based on “minor misbehavior.” The measure was intended to “reduce exclusionary disciplinary practices while implementing prevention and intervention programs for children and youth who are neglected, delinquent or at-risk.”

    Max Eden, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute specializing in school discipline reform and disorder, wrote in a USA Today op-ed last March that the Obama administration’s changes to school discipline had a dangerous result to public education all over the country. According to Eden, it pressured school officials and teachers to underreport or not report serious incidents committed by students.

    “It seems certainly worth asking about whether that pressure played a role in this particular incident. especially because you know Broward County was a first mover in these reforms. In 2013, they signed this PROMISE agreements to try to dramatically get down in-school arrests,” Eden told The Daily Caller Monday.

    President Donald Trump held a stunning televised meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers on Wednesday, and signaled he was open a series of gun control measures in a move that left Democrats beaming and Republicans stunned.

    The freewheeling meeting, broadcast live from the Cabinet Room, featured Trump embracing gun control legislation from expanded background checks to restricting gun sales to young adults.

    Perhaps most remarkably, Trump even made a comment that sent Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the Democrat from California, into a fit of joy.

    After Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) spoke about her desire to expand background checks with the aim of curbing domestic violence, Trump asked Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) if he could add her proposal to his bipartisan bill with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV).

    “Dianne if you could add what you have also – and I think you can — into the bill,” Trump then suggested.

    Well, as it turns out what Feinstein has is a ban assault weapons — a proposal that is anathema to Republican lawmakers and the NRA.

    Feinstein’s response was positively giddy, and the Democrat pointed at Manchin and joked “Joe are you ready?”

    “Joe can you do that?” Trump asked. “Can you add some of the things. I’ll help. Can you add what Amy and what Dianne have?”

Moore lost ultimately, yes, because of a series of allegations that became more credible as they piled on. He was always a candidate teetering on the edge of defeat though because his bellicose flagrant theocratic views turned off many even in Alabama.

    He was always going to underperform as proved by his narrow 2012 victory when all Republicans in Alabama won statewide either by double digits or unopposed. His buddy Fob James had had much the same mentality during the 1990s and had lost because of it.

    The sex allegations were just the final straw for a politician the Yellowhammer State was becoming increasingly tired of. He was known as the only candidate who could enable the Democrats to make a close race of it or win long before his salacious sex life from decades ago came out.

    It finally caught up to him.

    – As you know, the two parties were not ideologically pure then as they are now. Democrats from the South were often far more conservative than Republicans. Republicans from the Northeast were often more liberal than many Democrats.

    There’s a myth that Reagan switched parties from Democrat to Republican. This is not true.

    Reagan became a Roosevelt Democrat in the 1930s; however, in the 1950s, he began to become disillusioned with the more radical elements of the Democrat Party.

    Reagan was an Independent for a decade from the time of the Eisenhower Administration until Johnson was running for a full term in 1964.

    That was when Reagan became a Republican, his first major action as a nascent member of the GOP being an endorsement of Barry Goldwater.

    Thus, Reagan was not expedient at all in his shift. He quit the Dems after no longer feeling at home in the party. He became an Indy when he began to feel more fully comfortable with the party’s general ideology.

    And yet in the very next breath, NYCmike agree with his orange leader that it’s cool to take the guns first and then worry about due process later.

    – LOL. I’m just repeating what Rex Tillerson said about Trump. He called him a moron, a charge which Tillerson has refused to deny when asked on multiple occasions.

    – I think Cramer will win, but that poll is from the NRSC. It do deserve to viewed with some skepticism. No one here would take as gospel a DSCC poll.

    Thx for the photo. Cramer will have to photoshop Booker out, so that we can see her face when the ad runs.

  297. Wes says:

    Well, you took a DSCC poll saying Bayh would stomp Young by 21 points as gospel, Robbie. (FYI: Young won that race by 10.)

    I already acknowledged the poll is likely a bit generous to Cramer but bolsters the CW that Heitkamp is in trouble against Cramer.

    303 – so, you’re saying that a couple of former leftists became, and are recognized as, prominent conservative thinkers? My, my, the hypocrisy…..

    – LOL. Chicon, who believed Rod Wheeler’s claim the DNC murdered Seth Rich, yapps about hypocrisy as he defends Trump.

    Reagan’s conversion from New Dealer to conservative icon took 20 years or more. He traveled the country for GE speaking to employees and he got a sense of what people were really thinking. His conversion was genuine. In fact, his 1980 campaign was more conservative than his 1976 campaign because he spent the intervening years reading and studying about supply side economics.

    On the other hand, Trump has never believed in anything and he who believes in nothing can believe in everything. And as we’ve seen, Trump has been on both sides of every issue over the last decade or more.

    Trump hasn’t become a conservative. He conned you. He just mouthed talking points and you swooned for them. He no more believes in conservatism the way Reagan did than I believe the DNC murdered Seth Rich.

    – No. When Bayh got in the race, public polling not affiliated with either party showed Bayh was way up. Again though, I admit, unlike many people here, that I got 2016 all wrong.

  305. CG says:

    Reagan would quote the 1936 Dem platform and FDR speeches and remark how much it sounded like what Republicans now believed. He always maintained he did not leave the party, the party left him.

  308. Wes says:

    According to this, all those early polls showing Bayh up big, sans one, were conducted for Bayh himself or other entities invested in his election:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Senate_election_in_Indiana,_2016

    The poll I referred to–the DSCC poll saying Bayh led Young 54-33–was the one you posted on here and cited right after Bayh entered the race.

  309. CG says:

    That’s not at all what the Heritage Foundation said. They had some statistic about what percent of his “agenda” was accomplished in the first year.

    Reagan had a Democrat House and the country was in a recession at a similar time.

    Of course, what would matter most is what defines a “conservative agenda.” Reagan was clearly more conservative than Trump. And while some can cite some accomplishments under Trump, it is not as if he ever promised to do anything big or bold like take on entitlement reform, etc.

  310. CG says:

    The Heritage Foundation should do a comparison between Reagan and Trump on the issue of:

    Defending America’s interests against Russian aggression

    As for news sources, I’m sorry ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, NYT, WaPo, and the LA Times don’t meet your high standards like the FoxNews story that claimed the DNC murdered Seth Rich.

    Still, I read a range of news sources. On top of the MSM sources you despise because they aren’t pro-Trump, I also use FoxNews, National Review, Red State, and IJR.

    – Let’s not even compare the period when Trump took over to the period when Reagan took over. It’s night and day.

    Regardless, the Heritage Foundation of today (ruined by Jim DeMint) is not the Heritage Foundation of the 1980’s and 1990’s.

    DeMint, through his minion Michael Needham, turned Heritage into a pressure group rather than a think tank.

    Still, you made the point that you mocked me over earlier. If Trump has instituted more than 60% of his agenda already, why doesn’t he talk about it rather than rage tweet against Session or some other idiotic thing?

  325. Chicon says:

    324 – CG, what follows is the first two paragraphs of the article in Examiner. Care to amend your post, since it is wrong?

    With unprecedented speed, the Trump administration has already implemented nearly two-thirds of the 334 agenda items called for by the Heritage Foundation, a pace faster than former President Reagan who embraced the conservative think tank’s legendary “Mandate for Leadership” blueprint.

    Thomas Binion, director of congressional and executive branch relations at Heritage, said that Trump has implemented 64 percent of the “unique policy recommendations” from the group.

  326. Chicon says:

    My point regarding the Heritage Foundation thing is not to compare Trump to Reagan – Reagan was by far the best President of my lifetime, and is a personal hero to me.

    The point is that this “Trump is not a conservative” meme is silly. So far.

  327. Chicon says:

    326 – mnw, the Blues and Hawks are in similar situations this year, with one difference. Three of the Hawks’ best players are either old or playing like it – Kieth, Seabrook, and Toews. So it could be a longer process for them. But, that’s ok; they brought 3 Cups, when I expected none in my life.

    Maybe, just maybe, they should pay attention to something a little bit more serious.

  333. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Donald J. Trump “Many ideas, some good & some not so good, emerged from our bipartisan meeting on school safety yesterday at the White House. Background Checks a big part of conversation. Gun free zones are proven targets of killers. After many years, a Bill should emerge. Respect 2nd Amendment!”

    Trump has a way of dominating the conversation on an issue, which is impressive.

  334. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The President is, once again, in charge of writing legislation!

    Trump is like no other President we have ever had, for better or for worse,…..yet some people continue to look at him and critique him using the same standards as before.

  342. CG says:

    Weird question, but no, I don’t believe in being vicious with people I like.

    I’m not even vicious with you.

    And that’s an odd perspective to have of the Presidency.

  343. CG says:

    “Trump is like no other President we have ever had, for better or for worse”

    Yes, for worse. He is colossally uninformed, unprincipled, and gullible. That is why there is such a risk of him being run right over by a foreign leader who wants to harm the U.S.

    Without a teleprompter or a script, he was left to his own devices yesterday, and clearly his natural instincts were “get rid of the guns”, just a very left-wing New York City perspective, which fits with how and where he grew up.

    I am sure that when the meeting was over, there were West Wing staffers who had to try to politely inform him that he messed up and would need to pretend like the meeting never happened.

  344. NYCmike says:

    “Weird question, but no, I don’t believe in being vicious with people I like.”

    -Understood. You take yourself way too seriously….well, not really surprising.

    “I’m not even vicious with you.”

    -I wouldn’t notice if you were. Words on the internet are pretty harmless.

  345. CG says:

    A President is in charge of executive orders, which is what these tariffs amount to. There is no “legislation.” He is doing it on his own, even while Republicans criticize. (just like how Obama was able to do the Iran Deal all on his own).

    So, he has to own this, not Congress, and the stock market I suppose took a dive today because of it.

    As for “legislation”, we saw yesterday that he was directing how he thought the legislation should be written and he wanted Dianne Feinstein’s gun grab bill put into all the other bills, and he was telling Pat Toomey that he was a stooge of the NRA who needed to acquiesce to the demands of Dianne Feinstein.

    But all it takes is a mealy mouthed Tweet and people can pretend the event, in front of cameras, never even happened.

  346. NYCmike says:

    “Yes, for worse.”

    -You would rather have Clinton……WE KNOW.

    “He is colossally uninformed, unprincipled, and gullible.”

    “That is why there is such a risk of him being run right over by a foreign leader who wants to harm the U.S.”

    -Oh Lord, after 8 years of Obama, that is CLEARLY not a worry. He is a YUGE improvement in that regard.

    “A President is in charge of executive orders, which is what these tariffs amount to. There is no “legislation.” He is doing it on his own, even while Republicans criticize. (just like how Obama was able to do the Iran Deal all on his own).”

    -On Political Dog, I stated I disagree with Trump’s tariffs. I also stated that I will check out why Bush and Reagan instituted their tariffs.

    If you have any information in that regard, go ahead and share.

  348. CG says:

    I’d rather have neither. It’s a more than understandable wish.

    Now, let’s just say I’d rather have Pence. I am not sure why you don’t.

  349. CG says:

    So, when you understand the circumstance, you have to agree that if you don’t like the tariffs, it’s all on Trump and not Congress.

    As to other matters from history, you can Google, but my understanding is that this sort of slapping of tariffs across the board is far and beyond anything a Republican has done in modern time.

  350. CG says:

    Here’s some info on the Reagan tariff. The general consensus from the right is that this is one of the things that Reagan was wrong on

    Your stated preferred party has power, the majority of policies being implemented are approved by the majority of the voters of your stated preferred party, yet you keep trying to change what happened, instead of trying to alter the things which are still stacked up against your stated preferred party. For example: media bias, bias in colleges and universities against conservatives, bias against conservatives in YUGE, powerful tech firms like Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

  367. CG says:

    “My preferred party was out of power, so I tried to help them get back into power.”

    Same. And even worse for me, my preferred party is not even the opposition party. The opposition party is horrific as well.

    The Trump Republicans are not my party. If that is where the party moves to permanently, count me out.

  368. CG says:

    I’ll tell you this, based on your earlier post where you called me out.

    YouTube is not America. I don’t pay taxes to YouTube or pledge allegiance to YouTube. People do not wear the uniform in service of YouTube. I care more about what happens to the country and the freedoms and liberties of the people in it rather than any dumb policy that a private sector company like YouTube may implement.

    I am attempting to alert you to the fact that messages about our freedoms and liberties are being censored by certain media outlets, and by universities, and the people we elect need to be aware of that, and hopefully they respond in ways which will stop those entities from doing those things that are detrimental to our country.

    Again, I am NOT speaking about laws, I am NOT speaking about Executive Orders to arrest the head of Alphabet. I am speaking about using the bully pulpit to call out media bias, and to call out universities which do NOT allow for a free and open debate. Shame them into allowing for more freedom of thought.

    Change of pace:

    A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night to meet and have a dinner with her parents. Since this is such a big event, the girl announces to her boyfriend that after dinner, she would like to go out and make love for the first time.

    The boy is ecstatic, but he has never had sex before, so he takes a trip to the pharmacist to get some condoms. He tells the pharmacist it’s his first time and the pharmacist helps the boy for about an hour. He tells the boy everything there is to know about condoms and sex. At the register, the pharmacist asks the boy how many condoms he’d like to buy, a 3-pack, 10-pack, or family pack. The boy insists on the family pack because he thinks he will be rather busy, it being his first time and all.

    That night, the boy shows up at the girl’s parents house and meets his girlfriend at the door. “Oh, I’m so excited for you to meet my parents, come on in!”

    The boy goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where the girl’s parents are seated. The boy quickly offers to say grace and bows his head. A minute passes, and the boy is still deep in prayer, with his head down.

    10 minutes pass, and still no movement from the boy.

    Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girlfriend leans over and whispers to the boyfriend, “I had no idea you were this religious.”

    The boy turns, and whispers back, “I had no idea your father was a pharmacist.”

    One more:

    A pastor, a doctor and an engineer were waiting one morning for a
    particularly slow group of golfers ahead.

    The engineer fumed, “What’s with these guys? We must have been waiting
    for 15 minutes!”

    The doctor chimed in, “I don’t know, but I’ve never seen such ineptitude!”

    The pastor said, “Hey, here comes the greenskeeper. Let’s have a word
    with him.”

    [dramatic pause]

    “Hi George. Say, what’s with that group ahead of us? They’re rather
    slow, aren’t they?”

    George, the greenskeeper, replied, “Oh, yes, that’s a group of blind
    firefighters. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire
    last year, so we always let them play for free anytime.”

    The group was silent for a moment. The pastor said, “That’s so sad. I
    think I will say a special prayer for them tonight.”

    The doctor said, “Good idea. And I’m going to contact my
    ophthalmologist buddy and see if there’s anything he can do for them.”

    The engineer said, “Why can’t these guys play at night?”

    For Bitterlaw, mnw, and all of the other shysters out there:

    An engineer dies and he goes to the gates of heaven. St. Peter can’t find his name on the list and tells him he has to go down to Hell. Satan is thrilled to have an engineer enter Hell. The engineer finds Hell to be unbearable, so he starts to make improvements. He adds air-conditioning, cold running water, and many other amenities. Word of these improvements down in Hell gets back to God, so God gives Satan a call. God is not very happy and tells Satan that the rules clearly state no engineers in Hell and Satan needs to send the engineer back up to Heaven right away. Satan refuses, so God tells Satan he is going to sue.

    Satan responds, “Where are you going to find a lawyer?”

    This one made me laugh out loud!

    An old, blind cowboy wanders into an all-girl biker bar by mistake.
    He finds his way to a bar stool and orders a shot of Jack Daniels .
    After sitting there for a while, he yells to the bartender,
    ‘Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?’
    The bar immediately falls absolutely silent.
    In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says,
    ‘Before you tell that joke, Cowboy, I think it is only fair,
    Given that you are blind, that you should know five things:
    1. The bartender is a blonde girl with a baseball bat.
    2. The bouncer is a blonde girl.
    3. I’m a 6-foot tall, 175-pound blonde woman with a black
    belt in karate.
    4. The woman sitting next to me is blonde and a professional
    weight lifter.
    5. The lady to your right is blonde and a professional wrestler.
    Now, think about it seriously, Cowboy. Do you still wanna tell that
    blonde joke?’
    The blind cowboy thinks for a second, shakes his head and mutters,
    ‘No … not if I’m gonna have to explain it five times.’
