    @realDonaldTrump
    Mexico is doing very little, if not NOTHING, at stopping people from flowing into Mexico through their Southern Border, and then into the U.S. They laugh at our dumb immigration laws. They must stop the big drug and people flows, or I will stop their cash cow, NAFTA. NEED WALL!
    7:25 AM – Apr 1, 20

    Please kill Nafta and send troops tomthe border, Their corrupt gubment is worthless.

    Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!

    Yes, no more daca. Bye bye stoodents aged 30.

  5. Tina says:

    About time, that we “warned” the mexican government.

  6. Cash Cow TM says:

    “…or I will stop their cash cow,…”

    Trump can kiss my bovine behind!

  7. Gelt Goose says:

    Honk.

  8. Tgca says:

    Bitter

    From last thread.

    I don’t know your wife so I can’t judge if she’s a lunatic but she has to be at least a little bit crazy to marry you.

    Zing!

    Hugs and kisses always

  9. Gelt Goose says:

    Honk!

  10. mnw says:

    The mailman’s son is officially a DEM now.

  11. Gelt Goose says:

    Honk?

  12. janz says:

    Intel Office Explains why Obama could be First President in History to be Hit with a Felony Indictment. It’s interesting, if not encouraging, that the former president could finally become associated with the behavior he promoted during his presidency. However, beyond that, I doubt it will go any further than simply speculation.

    In the meantime, may all have a good Easter experience this weekend.

  13. Gelt Goose says:

    Honk!!

  14. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    An English newspaper headline:

    “London murder rate is HIGHER than New York’s for the first time ever after TWELVE killings in just 19 days
    •A man has died after being stabbed to death on Sunday morning
    •The victim, thought to be 20, was stabbed after leaving a bar in Wandsworth
    •This marks the 12th murder in 19 days as London overtakes NYC’s murder rates”

    Maybe we do not have a device problem, but a people problem.

    Maybe if we looked closer, we would see that family breakdown, narcotics, gangs, and lawless and fanatical social beliefs are the cause of murder, not gun availability.

  15. Cash Cow TM says:

    Whew!

    Finished hiding and hunting Easter eggs in the back yard.

    Walt is mad at me because I forgot to get the eggs, so I used hid cow plops.

  16. Cash Cow TM says:

    costa Rica election starts today!

    conservative Christian singer
    Fabricio Alvarado Munoz

    vs.

    center-left ruling party candidate Carlos Alvarado Quesada

    gay rights big issue…
    ***************************
    polls say Alvarado will win.

    Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove On Easter Sunday, Christians must remember how easily and often our faith is used to defend white supremacy

  18. Cash Cow TM says:

    I got my helmet on in case the chicom space station comes down around here,

    My money is on Michigan.

  19. janz says:

    “Maybe we do not have a device problem, but a people problem.”

    SDC, IMO, cultural patterns and personal behavior are what fuels how people interact in society. This notion that guns are the major culprit inspiring violence is so inadequate. After all, if someone wants to harm or kill another, they will find another device in order to accomplish their goal. That’s why I’m finding the kids, who the media promote in the most recent school shootings, to be not only inauthentic but almost a travesty. Here’s an article quoting one teacher, at the Stoneman-Douglas HS, saying the protests of David Hogg, Emma Gonzalas, and Cameron Kasky do not necessarily represent what many others feel at this high school. In fact most of the above names were not even involved in what happened on 2/14, while others –those actually actually injured that day — are being ignored. It’s all crazy!

  20. Hugh says:

    17. That guy is a moron. Intellectual light weight.

  21. Bitterlaw says:

    10 minutes in I really like the production of Jesus Christ Superstar on NBC.

  22. Bitterlaw says:

    A minuscule number of Christians are racists/white supremacists. Many white supremacists do follow a perverted form of Christianity to justify their hatred.

    Both can be true.

  23. chicon says:

    22 – True, Bitter. Here’s another one. A very high percentage of abusers of hard drugs used marijuana as their first drug. A very high percentage of marijuana users never become addicted to hard drugs.

    Both can be true.

  24. Bitterlaw says:

    I’m sure there’s a point there, Chicon. I have used any illegal drug so I leave the drug discussions to others.

  25. Cash Cow TM says:

    Helmet getting hot.

    Where that damn Chicom soace station at?

  26. Cash Cow TM says:

    Found it.
    Approaching Western coast of South America.

    Maybe it will hit siomewhere in the Middle East?
    Those jackanapes there need a little excitement in their mundane lives…

  27. Hugh says:

    Down 15. Only 3 points scores in 2nd quarter. Worst quarter in final four history. Biggest comeback in Final game. Only 7 scholarship players on team with 4 out with acl injuries including 2 starters and we win it at the buzzer. Great Easter

  28. Bitterlaw says:

    Congratulations to Norte Dame’s women’s team.

  29. Bitterlaw says:

    Still enjoying Jesus Christ Superstar.

  30. Cash Cow TM says:

    The ‘SAY’ the Chicom space station crashed in the South Pacific.

    No pictures, no eye witnesses…but I did see an ‘an artists rendition’ of the mofo burning up as it sped to earth.

    I call scam.

  31. Cash Cow TM says:

    BREAKING…

    The Cash Cow space station is now out of control and heading back to earth…

  32. Gelt Goose says:

    HONK!!!

  33. Cash Cow TM says:

    Well, on American Idol they just crushed a lot of performers dreams and sent them packing.

    They will probably all turn to drugs or off themselves.

  34. Hugh says:

    Thx Bitter

  35. Cash Cow TM says:

    Goosie,

    Did you see the space station fall and burn up?

    thought not…

  36. Cash Cow TM says:

    Katie Perry is a hot number.

  37. Bitterlaw says:

    Breaking News- Chinese space station lands on missing Malaysian airplane. Cash Cow dispatched o scene.

  38. Cash Cow TM says:

    WHAT ARE THE ODDS, BITTER!
    🙂

  39. Cash Cow TM says:

    dispatched

    did patches

  40. TrumpIsPeteWilson says:

    Janz posting more BS from a no-name source. Like everything she’s ever posted, it will be wrong a year from now unless a special combination of russian interference, identity theft, and other crimes push a retarded Orange goon into office.

    http://thehill.com/homenews/media/381174-gop-strategist-warns-trump-to-get-good-legal-help-now-because-the-storm-is

    Established Republican operative predicts 40-50 seat loss. And that’s with gerrymandering. It would be 80-100 otherwise.

    A storm is coming and taking your falsehood-repeating, brown-shirts with them. Your uberfuhrer will be impeached and the GOP can spend some time in the wilderness and maybe come back to the table with something more substantive than corporate welfare and racism as electoral strategies next time.

  41. Tgca says:

    Happy Monday!!!

    MAGA!
    MAGA!
    MAGA!

  42. Michael says:

    Trump now 50/49 on Rasmussen

  43. mnw says:

    Michael

    Wow.

  44. JC says:

    Trump at 50? Well, it looks like another long cruise for Robbie…

  45. JC says:

    From Ras:

    Trump’s overall job approval rating is now running ahead of where Barack Obama’s was at this stage of his presidency.

  46. mnw says:

    But! But!

    The Kindergarden (sic) Kid assures us in post 41 that the GOP in general & Trump in particular is going down in a flood of Biblical proportions!

    How can that be? I don’t understand.

  47. Michael says:

    44 Right? It’s bizarre that it was so stable these past two weeks then suddenly it took a 9-point swing from 45/53 to 50/49 in two days. Of course that “Easter bump” could be happening we will have to see lol

  48. Phil says:

    Things change constantly in politics but as of now here are my overall predictions.

    The coming Comey book tour will be promoted as nothing has ever been promoted by the MSM. It will backfire on Comey severely undercutting any credibility he has left with the electorate as a whole. CNN will shill for him as never before and will do SOME damage to Trump in spite of the obvious crap Comey will be selling.

    Democrats take the House winning 25 to 30 seats. The trolls quote of the Never Trumper’s prediction prediction of a 40 to 50 seats Democratic House gain is full fantasy. (Keep talking David Hogg)

    President Trump will be impeached by the House. Pelosi and Schumer decide to go forth with impeachment proceedings. They will determine that an impeachment trial in the Senate will be worth it as it will grind Trump’s judicial appointments to a halt during the remainder of his term.

    Kamala Harris will be nominated by the Democrats and will win a relatively close election. She is ambitious and the full force of the MSM and establishment will put her over the top in Michigan, Wisconsin, and one of Florida or Pennsylvania. She’s a loon but doesn’t have Hillary’s baggage. No one does. Of course the media will mask her as some sort of a “reasonable moderate”. We know how they operate.

    With a newly elected Democratic senate Harris will rule like Obama on steroids. The woman is a committed California loon and we are in for a tough time. Expect the southern border to virtually disappear, government regulation to ramp up as never before, and the left to begin their dream for America.

    America really needs to formally split in half. Two countries with two entirely different cultures. As a practical matter it won’t happen (not possible) but it would be the last great hope for American conservatives.

    Tough times coming.

  49. Phil says:

    I might add that it’s possible President Harris will overplay her hand, but the left is counting on continuation of the demographic shift so that sheer math will be enough over the next five years to solidify their hold on power regardless of how left they govern.

  50. MichiganGuy says:

    Praise be to God! I made it. Take that chicoms. Wow, is that Phil’s post? That sounds like something Robbie would say. At least the doom and gloom parts. 😉

  51. Tina says:

    95 percent positive favorable news coverage for the obumbler.

    95 percent negative for trump.

    That is why you need to hit back twice as hard, you cannot do the mute 43 passive routine, see the canned hams aporoach ti wmds in iraq, as an examole, or mutes second term.

  52. Phil says:

    I hope I’m wrong.

  53. Phil says:

    I meant to say UNLIKE ROBBIE, I hope I’m wrong.

  54. Wobbles says:

    I predicted the GOP would hold the House with 45%.

    At 50% I will have to predict a 20 seat gain.

  55. Tina says:

    Yes long cruise for the jebots.

    Long arse cruise.

    Stormy benadryl backfired.

    Stupid book author backfired.

    Now, Saint Comedy the Pius is up. The Catholic Dirty Cop.

  56. Tina says:

    Hogg Hitler also backfired.

  57. Wobbles says:

    95 percent positive favorable news coverage for the obumbler.

    95 percent negative for trump.”

    That’s why I don’t want Trump ever to fight back.

    I love the coverage.

  58. Phil says:

    The Comey book tour will be an absolute crap piece of work.

  59. Tina says:

    It would be nice if they arrest Comedy on his way to his book tour. Perp walk him for obstruction, stealing classified information, federal records act violation, etc.

  60. jason says:

    Cash Cow, all of Amos Stoltzfuss’ cows survived the space station crash.

    I know you were worried.

  61. Tina says:

    The problem with comedy is the ugly face. Huge turn off and the body type is a turn off too.

    Not to mention, he will be on the defensive since he and Mccabe appear to have provided false testimony to the ig investigator and the special prosecutor, outside of dc,

    But Sessions is still doin nuffin. We need a trial in front of the media.

  62. Tina says:

    I am sure bitter the eagle wil, “buy”everything that Comedy is selling, however.

  63. Tina says:

    The mexican. Gubment is corrupt and stupid,

    I do not know why they allowed the convoy of illegals from C. america in.

    Talk about ruining a compromise on daca and highlighting the need for the border wall.

  64. Bitterlaw says:

    Pretty early to be drunk, Tina, even for you. Why don’t you go find any pro-Comey posts I made or GFY.

    I don’t buy or read any books other than those on history. My eyes are bad and I find using reading glasses to be a chore.

  65. Bitterlaw says:

    I hope the country does not split. I would really hate the weather in “conservative” America. 4 weeks of Spring, 4 weeks of Fall, and 44 weeks of Summer sounds awful.

  66. jason says:

    Wow, the MSM goes through even more contortions than NYC did when defending Trump’s spending bill.

    North Carolina Cop Kills A Black Passenger Allegedly Refusing To Not Reach For His Gun”

    “Refusing to not reach for his gun”

    Translation: reached for his gun.

  67. Cash Cow TM says:

    Costa Rica election results

    “Carlos Alvarado, 38, a novelist and former labor minister will take office on May 8, after winning 61 percent of the vote, with 95 percent of polling stations reporting.”

    Told you Alvarado would win.
    (of course the other guy was also named Alvarado)

  68. jason says:

    Killing Nafta is not in the interest of the US, while a DACA deal IS in our interest.

    So I support Nafta and a DACA deal.

    There isn’t going to be any border wall, maybe in some places, but its not going to happen for the entire length of the border you read it here first.

    So Trump would be smart to take what he can get on border security, which in the end is more important than a wall.

  69. Tina says:

    You actually wrote a lot of comedy posts when he was first fired.

  70. Tina says:

    And you will buy everything he sells in his book too.

  71. Bitterlaw says:

    The only thing I liked about Comey was his ability to be both hated by the left for destroying Hillary with the investigation AND hated by the Trumpers for trying to elect Hillary. Not many people could pull that one off.

    I will ignore what Comey says and what is said about him by all sides. Indifference is necessary these days.

  72. NYCmike says:

    “So Trump would be smart to take what he can get on border security, which in the end is more important than a wall.”

    -Trump would be wise to ignore such terrible advice. Hopefully, he won’t be stupid like he was in signing that omnibus bill passed by “The Trump Family Congress”.

  73. NYCmike says:

    ” Indifference is necessary these days.”

    -George W. Bush-style-indifference…..what could possibly go wrong?!?

  74. Tina says:

    So, he tried to destroy and elect hillary?

  75. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina – Read it again. Hillary supporters claimed Comey tried to sway the election against her by reopening the investigation right before the election. Trump supporters said he tried to sway the election in her favor by not recommending prosecution of her.

  76. Tina says:

    An act of love would be to allow the convoy of illegals in.

  77. hugh says:

    So here is my takeaway from the Hillary investigation and the reopening days before the election. It took forever for the DOJ and FBI to scan her emails and report back. over a year I believe. It took 4 days to go through 80,000 emails and report back before the election. Having an understanding of responding to subpoenas, I know that everyone uses software to do the appropriate searches and to scan them to determine relevant and not relevant. It is not very difficult even when dealing with 10s of thousands of emails and documentation. It is a joke how the DOJ and FBI respond to information requests. In the real world CEOs would be prosecuted for such foot dragging. BTW no one is more demanding when issuing subpoenas then government agencies. Yet on TV no one ever draws the parallel between how the govt acts when issuing subpoenas and how the govt acts when they are subpoenaed. Also, did anyone in the media bring up that they could vet 80K emails in 4 days, but it took a year to go through far less.

  78. Phil says:

    ….to be followed by convoy after convoy after convoy after the word is out that these guys made it over the border with no trouble.

  79. Phil says:

    Great points, Hugh.

  80. janz says:

    #78 Hugh, you’re applying far too much logic and common sense in that post.

  81. Waingro says:

    #49, ha, that was an EPIC doom and gloom post, Phil.

  82. janz says:

    …And, when interfacing with government entities, logic and common sense are rarely the Staples used!

  83. Waingro says:

    RCP posted a D+11 Harvard Harris GCB poll today (they have Trump at 44% approval so this doesn’t really compute IMO), but the link they have takes your here: http://harvardharrispoll.com/.

    All that shows up is a link to their February poll. I’m thinking and hoping this was in error.

    ” Indifference is necessary these days.”

    -George W. Bush-style-indifference…..what could possibly go wrong?!?

    Only the unnecessary murders of thousands, the destabilization of the Middle East, the development of nuclear weapons by Iran, the near collapse of the national GOP, and the election of the single furthest left President in American history.

    Aside from that, nothing bad though.

  85. Wes says:

    Isn’t it amazing how the RRH “Republicans” are always skeptical of how the GOP will move voters to their camp by doing anything?

  86. Wes says:

    This is the relevant post I’m referring to from today’s roundup on that site:

    NWOTSOTB, but apparently AG Josh Hawley (R) has a web ad hitting Sen. Claire McCaskill over her vote on SCOTUS Justice Neil Gorsuch. Seems like someone got some great audio of McCaskill talking about taking a scalp and they really wanted to squeeze it into an ad, but I’m skeptical of an ad like this moving any real voters.

  87. Tina says:

    I likw W.

    But I like Hillary even more.

    Jebot

  88. NYCmike says:

    “Only the unnecessary murders of thousands, the destabilization of the Middle East, the development of nuclear weapons by Iran, the near collapse of the national GOP, and the election of the single furthest left President in American history.”

    -I was actually speaking about his “supposedly Presidential” attitude of treating the press with respect, as opposed to the not-really-friends (to put it mildly) that they are……I do NOT agree with most of your Bush assessment……you are as deranged about that family as Robbie and “CG” (and the rest) are about the Trump’s.

  89. Wes says:

    unnecessary murders of thousands–Did GWB not stand idly by for nearly five years while ISIS and other terrorist groups murdered thousands in Iraq?

    destabilization of the Middle East–Again, where was Bush when the terrorists he wanted to fight in Iraq were running wild?

    development of nuclear weapons by Iran–Is Iran not developing nuclear weapons at least in part because Bush failed in Iraq and compromised America’s presence there?

    near collapse of the national GOP–You clearly weren’t paying attention in 2006 and 2008 when Republicans dropped to post-Watergate numbers in Congress.

    election of the single furthest left President in American history–Again, you were clearly in a coma in 2008 when Obama won largely because GWB was at 33% approval.

  90. mnw says:

    Wes

    I saw that at RRH too & found it irritating.

    The ad in question could be part of a chain of ads, all on the theme that she’s out of touch with MO, & has been for years.

    I know I said this previously, but Thune did that to Deaschle.

    Wanna see the best political ad ever made? See Thune’s “In His Own Words.”

  91. Wes says:

    I voted for GWB twice Mikey. He failed as President and earned my undying hatred. That’s not my fault but his.

  92. mnw says:

    The Thune ad is still up up at YouTube, btw.

  93. Wes says:

    Amazingly, Mnw, I’ve never once seen an RRH “Republican be anything but skeptical the GOP ever has an effective voter outreach strategy.

    If Republicans are so bad at attracting voters, why are so many of them in office right now?

  94. Cash Cow TM says:

    Market crashed today.

    Glad I still have my helmet on.

  95. NYCmike says:

    “unnecessary murders of thousands–Did GWB not stand idly by for nearly five years while ISIS and other terrorist groups murdered thousands in Iraq?”

    -This was after 2008. Obama said the troops would leave in 2012. ISIS waited, then pounced.

  96. NYCmike says:

    “destabilization of the Middle East–Again, where was Bush when the terrorists he wanted to fight in Iraq were running wild?”

    -Again, happened after he left office.

    You can blame Bush for us being over there, but place blame with Obama for screwing up the peace, which was at hand, relatively so for that area of the world.

  97. NYCmike says:

    “development of nuclear weapons by Iran–Is Iran not developing nuclear weapons at least in part because Bush failed in Iraq and compromised America’s presence there?”

    -You can say that Bush has some culpability here, but Obama made it worse, MUCH WORSE.

  98. NYCmike says:

    C

  99. Wes says:

    So terrorists were just sitting around campfires and singing kumbaya from 2003 till Bush ordered that apparently unnecessary surge, I suppose, Mikey.

  100. NYCmike says:

    “near collapse of the national GOP–You clearly weren’t paying attention in 2006 and 2008 when Republicans dropped to post-Watergate numbers in Congress.”

    -Bush deserves blame, along with the leadership among congressional Republicans……..a lesson STILL NOT LEARNED TO THIS DAY!

  101. NYCmike says:

    “So terrorists were just sitting around campfires and singing kumbaya from 2003 till Bush ordered that apparently unnecessary surge, I suppose, Mikey.”

    -When Bush left office, after Petraeus and the SURGE, was the country in relative peace, for this part of the world?

    Yes or No?

  102. Wes says:

    Hey, dumbass, did you note the specific year and timeframe I mentioned? Apparently no problems at all occurred then based on your posts.

  103. NYCmike says:

    “election of the single furthest left President in American history–Again, you were clearly in a coma in 2008 when Obama won largely because GWB was at 33% approval.”

    -This could be true……if not for the ineptitude of Bush, along with policies put in place (mainly by Democrats) which caused the mortgage bond panic in 2008, Obama may not have been President. Obama definitely timed his rise perfectly, with a YUGE assist from Bush.

  104. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    Did you ever notice that getting called names on the internet don’t really leave a mark?

    Go into the kitchen with MD and make me a meatloaf sandwich, you hyper-sensitive backside rubber!

  105. Wes says:

    By the way, ordering the surge in 2008 would have been the equivalent of scheduling the Normandy invasion for 1947. It curbed the violence, but our credibility in the area was undermined. Americans were tired of the war and wanted us out.

    Obama won in large part precisely because he promised to get us out while McCain promised to keep us in.

    That made the election a nobrainer.

  106. NYCmike says:

    “Apparently no problems at all occurred then based on your posts.”

    -I didn’t say this at all.

    The place was a sheothole before Bush, and it is still a sheothole. Bush is not the only one who deserves blame for what is going on in this world.

  107. Wes says:

    Bush started the war in Iraq and dithered for years while terrorists slaughtered people with impunity. It’s his failt, much as you want to play foreign policy legerdemain and blame Obama for GWB’s failure.

  108. NYCmike says:

    “Obama won in large part precisely because he promised to get us out while McCain promised to keep us in.”

    -You value short-sighted, political decisions compared to long-term, strategic thinking.

    Good for you.

    I am glad more people like you weren’t around after WWII…..

  109. Wes says:

    Hm. Did I mean fault or fail when I typed failt?

    I may have invented a new word on accident.

  110. NYCmike says:

    “It’s his failt,”

    -I thought you said a word in Gaelic.

  111. Wes says:

    We won WWII in three and a half years. Bush didn’t even become serious about Iraq for almost five years.

    How’d that “long-term, strategic thinking” work out for you?

  112. NYCmike says:

    failt in Gaelic means “one who rubs backs and hates Bush”.

  113. Wes says:

    Read The Art of War, Mikey. Sun Tzu can explain to you exactly why Bush failed in Iraq.

  114. jason says:

    Bush didn’t even become serious about Iraq for almost five years.”

    Zzzzzzzzz…

    BDS garbage.

    Bush used overwhelming force to invade Iraq and that is why Saddam was quickly toppled and the Iraq army, navy and air force completely routed in just a few weeks. I would rate that as excellent.

    Bush got bad advice later and didn’t have enough troops to secure the country long term, and he bears ultimate responsibility, but he did redeem himself with the surge.

    Wes always tries to re-invent history here but it never works.

  115. Tgca says:

    Phil

    I can’t disagree with you more. I do not think that if in 2 years the economy is going well that folks are going to say let’s elect an ultra San Francisco liberal POTUS and roll back everything achieved in the past couple years and ramp up regulation, raise taxes, open our borders, and scale down the military. I don’t see how Kamala runs on that message. Business will stop spending and moving production outside the US again, unemployment will rise, crime will escalate.

    In addition, I think most of the country is past the let’s practice diversity inclusion and endorse the next POTUS as a black or female. Folks have seen the type of leaders Obama and HRC were and turned off. Obama’s only won in 2012 because Romney was by far one of the weakest candidates ever and literally threw in the towel the last month of the race.

    If the economy is doing well, that’s where the fight will be. People rarely vote against their pockets, only the most extreme do and there are not enough of them to win an election. I’m not saying Trump being re-elected is a guarantee or it will be easy but folks will have to judge how far they came in 4 years and whether they wish to continue that track or go another route.

  116. Tgca says:

    We were brutal in WWII to fend off terrible dictators. Today we fight politically correct wars that make them nearly impossible to execute quickly and deadly and be done. If we tried the stuff today we did in Europe, folks would be dragging the US to the World International Courts for war crimes. I accept that wars can no longer be efficiently fought because people have become too soft and equate both sides.

    I hope I am wrong about a President Harris. What a disaster that would be. She has several things going for her, however. She’s black. That will give her a huge votig block in the southern state early primaries. Also, California has a huge delegate block and she’ll get the lion’s share of those.

    Once nominated, she can count on getting the black vote up in Detroit, Milwaukee….etc. maybe enough to win Wisconsin and Michigan. Wouldn’t take much. Clinton came within an eyelash of taking those states herself.

    I hope I am wrong and, yes, a strong economy in two years would go a long way in stopping Kamala Harris. Look for the MSM to talk down the economy all they can.

  118. Tgca says:

    I agree Kamala would bring out the black female vote but she will also bring out the white male vote because face it, guys don’t like to be talked down to by an elitist woman any more than women like to be talked down to by an arrogant male.

    Also, women are tougher on women than other woman. Barack was a 1st and being a man, especially a black man, helped him with the minority community. Unfortunately, Kamala would not be the 1st black and I don’t think she garners the same level of support as a black male candidate.

    Remember, Hillary won the women vote by essentially the same level at which Trump won the male vote, and Hillary lost the white woman vote, as I als suspect Kamala would too.

    In the end, it comes down to the economy and get out the vote barring some major scandal. Yes, race will also be a factor in both sides if a Kamala were the Dem nominee.

    How To Interpret Those Media Polls.
    .
    “Media polls promulgate a midterm message of Republican collapse and Democratic success. They primarily rely upon the “generic ballot” national vote. How accurate was that media generic ballot polling the last time we faced a comparable circumstance: a controversial Republican incumbent and a GOP-controlled House?
    .
    In 2006, media institutions and universities conducted 75 surveys testing the generic ballot before Labor Day. How many of those 75 polls over-estimated the Democratic vote? Sixty-seven (67) of the 75. How many media polls under-estimated the Democratic vote? Seven (7) of the 75. How many media polls hit the target right on? One (1) of the 75 (It was Fox).”

  145. Bitterlaw says:

    MG – My point is that different players step up in different games. Villanova won every tournament game by double digits. 7 players hit threes against Kansas but Spellman had the most. Brunson dominated other games. Booth was solid in others. Nova has more than 2 scorers.

    Wagner looked unstoppable for Michigan for 5 minutes. Then he was stopped for long stretches.

  146. Bitterlaw says:

    DW- Villanova’s coach is being talked about as a potential NBA coach. I think he will stay in college. He has a great program and a great lifestyle.

    I wonder what he would do if a school like Duke, UNC, or Kentucky called him. He does not believe in one and done athletes so they may not call.

  150. DW says:

    Bitter–hard to say. Its odd how three weeks ago all the sports pundits were saying how wide open the field was and how most of 1 through 4 seeds would surprise no one in cutting down the nets. But Villanova proved themselves to be at a level much higher than all the rest.

    But one takeaway I got from the tournament is how Buffalo coach Nate Oats is clearly the next Shaka Smart–the mid-major coach that goes big. He and his coaching staff had four days to prep for Arizona, and the 13 seed Buffalo blew out Arizona, out-rebounded their two seven footers with 6’8″ and 6’7″ players and hustling guards. Being 7 foot made it easier for Arizona to catch all the Buffalo 3-balls that dropped through the net.

    Had Buffalo had more time to prep for Kentucky, they might have had a shot there too.

    But I predicted this path for Oats a few years ago when he took over for Bobby Hurley who went to ASU.

    Buffalo wisely locked him in to a higher paying contract extension right before the Arizona win–so they wouldn’t lose him to bigger programs shopping for a coach.

    I have become more convinced that as usual the pundits and all the media have it completely wrong. The real story in America today is the red wave of rage that is building with the constant attack on first and second Amendment rights.

Everyone else on this site can talk about the blue wave but I believe that the red wave is coming that will confound all.

  155. Waingro says:

    #156, that would be an amazing reversal, dblaikie, but there is some underlying truth to that possibility.

    There is a reason “unbiased” journalists like Chris Cuomo are panicking and claiming “no one” wants to repeal the Second Amendment. It would be political suicide to go there.

    However, this has obviously been the left’s true goal when it comes to “gun control” and “common sense reform”. The unveiling is slowly but sure coming to light, particularly with John Paul Stevens op-ed the other day.

    The more the Dems come across as literal gun grabbers, the more likely there will indeed be a backlash.

  156. dblaikie says:

    158 Oh I believe there is a slow burning rage (and I use that word specifically) building up in the conservative heartland of America. The events of the last couple of months have laid bare the intentions of the left in this country. More than that, the complete disdain that the liberal elite have for conservative Americans is reaching a boiling point! There are other measures to the leanings of our land besides just polls. If I was in the lunatic fringe I would be greatly concerned by the rating blow out of Rosanne in cities like Cincinnati all across the fruited plan. People are tired of being labeled as racist, or stupid because of their faith, or as dear Ms. Clinton puts it — deplorable.

    The belief that major media outlets disseminate fake news at least occasionally has increased among every partisan group over the past year, including Republicans (89% up from 79% in 2017), independents (82% up from 66%), and Democrats (61% up from 43%). In addition to the fact that a clear majority of Democrats now believe that traditional media outlets report fake news at least occasionally, the poll also finds that a majority of Republicans (53%) feel this happens on a regular basis (up from 37% in 2017).
    .
    A plurality of the public (42%) say that traditional news media sources report fake news on purpose in order to push an agenda. Fewer Americans (26%) believe that major media sources tend to report these stories only by accident or due to poor fact checking. Another 7% feel both reasons are equally prevalent. The remainder are either not sure or do not feel that fake news is reported by traditional media outlets. The number who believe this type of false reporting is done on purpose has not changed much from a year ago when it stood at 39%. The number who say it is done accidentally has increased from 17% a year ago as more people feel that the traditional media engages in reporting fake news stories.

    The only consolation I have regarding the MSM’s sordid campaign to overturn the results of the election is that they are slowly but surely digging their own grave.

    People like Wobbie still believe them but their credibility is shot. They are now completely identified with liberalism and the Democratic party and their support basically comes from one ideological group.

    I think in the long run they will rue the day they lost all pretense of independence and objectivity UNLESS they are successful in making the country into a one-party state, when then Proud Obamacon’s dream of a Pravda type media could work.

    So basically they are fighting a war they know they can’t afford to lose. Either they prevail and manage to shut down any opposing views or they end up as the a just a “liberal voice”, a gigantic DKos so to speak. People who access the MSM will do so just to confirm their own bias, like Wobbie does.

In other words, they are future voters once road to citizenship gets enacted and of course their off springs become IMEDIATE citizens with full voting rights – they are just waiting to turn eighteen.

    Family member of teen burglary suspect killed in Wagoner County break-in speaks out

    AA
    COOKSON, Okla., (KTUL) — A family member of one of the three teen suspects killed after breaking into a Wagoner County home Monday is speaking out for the first time.

    The grandfather of Jacob Redfearn believes shooting and killing the 17-year-old and his friends was not needed.

    “What these three boys did was stupid,” said Leroy Schumacher.

    Schumacher agrees his grandson and his friends made a bad decision, but not one worthy of deadly consequences.

    “They knew they could be punished for it but they did not deserve to die,” said Schumacher.
    Redfearn, 19-year old Maxwell Cook and 16-year old Jake Woodruff were shot by the homeowner’s son while breaking into the Wagoner County house Monday.

    Schumacher says his grandson didn’t have a chance. The 17-year old, he says, never got into trouble.

    “Brass knuckles against an AR-15, come on, who was afraid for their life,” said Schumacher.

  175. lisab says:

    It would appear that the president is a crime victim.

    A victim of the cou plotters, who dreamed up the insurance policy.

    It is time for mulehead to wrap up.

  207. Tina says:

    And trump should still not do any interview.

    Should politely continue to state that, he believes that he is a crime victiim, wants an investigation into the crime committed against him, and he will answer only written questions since mukehead and swampstein have failed to show that a crime was commited by the president.

    Mets off to a 3-1 start. Still trying to solve the mystery as to why the Mets keep pretending that Jose Reyes is still a major league player. He was great in his day…but his skills left him a few years ago. Reyes batted .174 in spring training, and last night did his best to try and help the Phillies win. He batted 8th in the lineup and with two-outs managed to draw a walk so the pitcher’s spot could get the third out, allowing the top of the order in the next inning…but instead he gets caught stealing. Then the next inning he commits an error allowing the leadoff hitter to get on base.

    Mets would have been better off putting Tebow on the roster as at least they would get publicity out of it.

    I don’t even think NYC could ever get that loony……but you never know.

  256. NYCmike says:

    “AND TYLER TOO: President William Henry Harrison died on this day in 1841, only 31 days into his term. He was the first President to die in office. Here’s the Constitutional quirk: In those days, the Constitution simply said that in case of the President’s death “the Powers and Duties of the said office” “shall devolve upon the Vice President.” It didn’t say that the Vice President BECOMES the President. Tyler, however, took the position that he WAS then the President, and got royally (or at least presidentially) pissed off when some people disagreed. It wasn’t until the 25th Amendment, ratified in 1967, that it was made clear that the Vice President actually becomes the President upon the death, resignation or removal of the President.”

    -There is a link on Instapundit. I am fascinated that people back then actually disagree because it did NOT explicitly say the VP becomes President upon the death of the President. The LEFT has come a long way in the United States in transforming our citizenry……

  257. Phil says:

    Mike, California is already there ideologically.

  258. NYCmike says:

    Bitterlaw,

    Is Trump currently writing the $1 Trillion infrastructure bill which Congressional Republicans will pass against their will?

  259. Robbie says:

    My read of the Washington Post story from last night about Trump’s status as a “subject” of the investigation and the news that an obstruction of justice report is being written is as follows.

    On the matter of Trump being a “subject” and not a “target”, I think it’s hard to decipher, but it’s better to be a subject than a target. That said, I’d be scared to death if I was the subject of a federal investigation because all it takes is one piece of data to go from subject to target.

    Also, I would point out that it’s no small thing to have the president of the United States be the subject of a federal investigation. Others have also noted it may not be possible to consider a president, any president, the “target” of an investigation since target means an indictment is likely and presidents probably can’t be indicted.

    On the issue of obstruction of justice, I think the story may suggest Mueller has concluded he can’t prove the intent needed to say Trump’s actions meet the standard of obstruction of justice. I say that because they are already writing a report and hope to publish it in June or July. If they’re already writing a report without Trump’s own views, I’d probably take the view it’s a good thing for Trump. Of course, Trump could always shoot his mouth off and then things change.

    All that said, Starr was well along in his report on Clinton and Lewinsky when he interviewed Clinton and the report lead to impeachment. My guess is the report is going to be a very bad moment for Trump, but not fatal to his presidency so long as Republicans remain in his corner. If Democrats win the House, then all bets are off in 2019.

    The big wild card in the Washington Post story remains whether Trump is a subject simply because Mueller is adhering to guidelines from 1973 and 2000 that a president can’t be indicted so he can’t be a target.

    All in all, Trump’s prospects seem better than before the publication of the story.

  260. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    In the AZ CD-8 April 24th Special Election, early ballots received favor the GOP by about 20%, or 11,000 votes.

  261. Phil says:

    “Of course Trump could always shoot his mouth off and then things change”

    Always a possibility with Trump.

    And do it goes.

    The National Guard will just funnel more detainees into a hopelessly broken system… purposefully designed to provide a DEM majority in perpetuity.

    “But Bitter! The GOP can only win if it gives Hispanics and other minorities free stuff and benefits.”

    BS. Anybody who believes this believes that politics is genetic. Defeatist garbage based on fear. I can promise you that my Irish family did not go from being Democrats to Republicans by getting government handouts. Nor did my Jewish wife’s family. They worked hard and supported the GOP which stood for hard work meaning something.

    If Hispanics are predestined to be Democrats, how did we get Jason and Tgca? Jason is an immigrant from South America. Tgca is a fabulous gay Hispanic from Newark. Are they mutants?

    I see you are still trying to get support to fight the wrong immigrants – the legal ones.

    I have supported the GOP 100%. I am sure my record is better than yours on that score.

  280. Bitterlaw says:

    Chicon – It is responsive. mnw and others fear this wave of illegals who will always vote for Democrats. They always seem to forget the other waves of immigrants who were supposed to always vote for Democrats. When challenged, they always have an excuse for why THOSE immigrants were different,

    I want the border sealed and illegal immigration stopped. I do not care about the race or ethnicity of the illegals. In fact, I have no problem with increasing legal immigration from South and Central America.

  281. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC held Trump accountable for the budget bill by blaming Congress. Maybe a Russian nerve poison caused Trump’s hand to sign it,

  282. Tina says:

    Deport, attrition, enforce existing laws, visa reform, and the wall.

  283. Bitterlaw says:

    There will not be a wall on the entire border. I agree with Tina but I think we differ on automatic deportations of all DACA. I would also punish employers who do not use e-verify with jail time.

  284. Phil says:

    Seal the border like every other sovereign nation on the face of the earth does.

    Nothing racist about that.

  285. Tina says:

    There is no need for a wall across the entire border.

    And trump never proposed such a wall.

    Never.

  286. MichiganGuy says:

    I agree with BL. wow That is scary!

  287. Phil says:

    However, it is a fact that Hispanics coming across the border will vote Democratic by wide margins. That’s not racist either. It has nothing to do with some Hispanic predisposition to vote Democratic. It has everything to do with economics. They have nothing (that’s why they are crossing the border in the first place) and want to improve their economic situation. They will vote for the party that promises to hand out the most. They are voting their economic self interest. Race has nothing to do with this. If you need government assistance to make ends meat you vote for the party that promises to give you the most….and Democrats certainly promise the most.

  288. Bitterlaw says:

    Sealing the border is not racist. Thinking that Hispanics can only be Democrats FOREVER because they are compelled only by greed for government handouts is racist.

    If race was the determining factor and fixed, blacks would still be overwhelmingly Republican.

  289. Phil says:

    I also would punish employers who hire illegals. That’s the best way to deal with illegal immigration. Not the only way but the most effective way coupled with other solutions – border security being a key component.

  290. Bitterlaw says:

    Phil – My family would have been better off being Democrats. Why did they break away?

  291. Bitterlaw says:

    Phil – So Hispanics can never change their voting habits unless paid off? Interesting. No other group in American history has remained fixed like that.

  292. Phil says:

    it’s not greed to want enough to live on, bitter – and that’s what illegals want and that’s what drives them to vote Democratic. Whether they vote that way in forty years depends on their economic status – not their race. Right now they are poor – who just also happen to be Hispanic. That’s where the poor millions are coming from – Latin America.

    Nothing purely racial about it. It’s economic. I will admit that it is helped along by the Republicans are racist (because they want the border secured) BS coming out of the mouths of Pelosi, Schumer and company. It’s BS.

  293. Phil says:

    They are voting their economic self interest and I can’t say I wouldn’t vote the same way if I was dirt poor. My point is that they are emulating the way the poor have voted Democratic for decades. Has nothing to do with race. That probably could change if they ever obtain middle class status. It will take several decades at least. In the meantime you get one party rule as we see in California. It is, of course, what the Democratic Party is seeking.

House impeaches and the probable still Republican Senate will be tied up with a trial that everyone knows will not produce the two thirds to remove President Trump. That is fine with Democrats. A trial ties up Senate business and prevents Trump judicial nominees from gaining confirmation.

    This is easy. Not rocket science.

    “it’s not greed to want enough to live on, bitter – and that’s what illegals want and that’s what drives them to vote Democratic. Whether they vote that way in forty years depends on their economic status – not their race. Right now they are poor – who just also happen to be Hispanic. That’s where the poor millions are coming from – Latin America.”

    I don’t agree. There is a large part of the Latino community that is hard-working and moving into the middle class. Frankly it is hard to get good blue collar workers in California who are not Latino. Statistics are showing a rise in Latino incomes; and Asians now have higher incomes than Anglos. Asians in San Diego vote Republican by the same percentages as Anglos.

    “First, Hispanic Affluent Households, earning over $100K annually, have expanded at 9.2% annually since 2011, twice the 4.5% rate of Affluent expansion seen by White Non-Hispanics (see Chart 2). Hispanic Affluent growth since 2011 has been consistently higher than that of African Americans (6.9%) and Asian/Other Affluent Households (7.9%) yet these two segments also saw an annual rate of expansion faster than that of White NH Affluents. One in 12 Affluent Households in the U.S. is Hispanic up from one in 16 eight years ago.

    Second, looking at middle income Hispanics, that is, “Upscale” households earning $50-100K per year, the pace of increase has been so phenomenal that they accounted for 1 in 2 new Upscale Households formed in the U.S. since 2011 (See Chart 3). One in eight American Upscale homes are now Latino versus 1 in 10 back in 2007. In fact, Hispanic Upscales households grew at twice the rate of Hispanic Mass households with incomes between $30-50K. While there were almost 250K less low income Latino homes earning less than $30K in 2015 than in 2011, there were 700K more Latino Upscale homes and 700K more Latino Affluent homes.”

This revolt against Sacramento is going to keep spreading and could be a real issue in November. Believe me, the rage against liberal policies, if they continue to push them is going to lead to trouble for the Democrats and is going to destroy the dreams of liberals all across the fruited plain.

  323. Phil says:

    330

    Three days ago, California law changed. They now granted automatic voter registration rights to a million illegals with driver’s licenses. They aren’t even subtle about it any longer.

    California is a nut house. I wouldn’t hold my breath expecting any kind of sanity out of that state. You will be doomed to disappointment. Maybe a handful of lightly populated localities in western parts of the states. Illegals flow to the welcoming arms of the big populated cities and municipalities along the coast. That is where the population is and that is where the action is. No rule of law in Los Angeles County and don’t expect any. If anything, their policies get more nutty by the day.

  324. Phil says:

    it isn’t “greed” for an illegal to break into the country and then want government assistance (food stamps for their children for example) to make end’s meat. These people are in poverty. That’s the problem. It’s not race. It’s economics.

    It’s also why Hispanics skew heavily Democratic in their voting patterns. They are extremely disproportionally poor. They will vote for the party which will provide the most tax payer provided benefits. Guess which party that is.

    Their voting patterns will change when more enter the middle class. Unfortunately, that will take decades. In the meantime? You have California. The most extreme example of one party rule in the US.

    Sure, the Irish voting patterns changed – but it didn’t happen for decades – coincidentally, it gradually changed as more entered the middle class.

  325. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Rasmussen(less) drops Trump’s approval today from 51 to 47.

  326. dblaikie says:

    334 I agree with you in part, to think that California would once again, like the old Reagan days, to return to a more red hue is a pipe dream. However Phil, this is not only just western low population counties. Orange County has over 3 million people. It is possible that San Diego County may follow Orange County’s lead. Placing like Huntington Beach are bastions of affluence. Watch other major suburbs in not western counties but Orange, San Diego, San Bernardino, and Riverside Counties follow suit. Again it is reflective of the rage that is building in this country over the effort to open our borders, and the attack on our first and second amendment rights.

    And by the way if this fire in Southern California spreads, it will impact the Congressional Elections in Southern California.

  327. dblaikie says:

    336 a four point drop in a daily tracking poll shows a strong Trump day rolling off and a bad Trump day rolling on. Will have to wait at least four days to see if there has been any real change.

  328. Michael says:

    336 it’s a huge swing and proves again their model is flawed going form 51/48 to 47/51 in one day.

  329. dblaikie says:

    339 I agree, however Rasmussen has not been a polling outfit to show these great swings before. I wonder what is going on with their model. However, for many reasons, I believe that all polling is flawed today.

  330. Phil says:

    dblaikie, you seem more informed than me on the specific municipality to municipality political lay of the land in California so I will defer to you on that. Perhaps there is enough rage to effect handful of congressional races in Orange and San Diego Counties. I hope so.

    Here’s the problem, with the new California law you will now have more illegals on the local and state voter rolls voting in municipal elections. To me, that means more loons elected in those two counties. That will drive local policy toward immigration further left it seems to me.

  331. dblaikie says:

    Phil, we are on the same page. If nothing is done California will descend into political madness. But the next elections are only a few months off. If this movement to join Trump’s lawsuit against California’s law deepens and grows the golden state will descend into a state of political civil war. There are already movements for large parts of California to break off from Sacramento and form their own state. Of course, that won’t happen but it does show that not all is happy in Moonbeam land.

    So Ras was great when it showed Trump at 51 but flawed when it showed Trump at 47? Got it.

    – Here’s a better way to look at Rasmussen. It’s a garbage pollster that no political professional uses. If someone wants to include it in a polling average, fine. If someone wants to use it as the gold standard, lunacy.

    There was a story the other day which showed Rasmussen was consistently worse for Obama than other pollsters and consistently better for Trump than other pollsters.

    Rasmussen is junk and don’t even start with me that Rasmussen muh super pollster because it’s one step away a Drudge poll.

  336. Robbie says:

    If Blackburn somehow does lose the Tennessee race, it will be 100% on Trump. His erratic, boorish behavior is precisely what caused Corker to retire. But had Corker not retired, this race would a be a walkover for him. Of course NYCmike and his buddies don’t like walkover wins. They want to run with purity candidates who may lose, but say the things they hear Mark Levin scream into the microphone.

  337. Robbie says:

    I keep reading about Trump’s poll numbers rising and Republican poll numbers rising in the generic ballot question, but it’s not really showing up in the RCP average.

    Trump’s approval is definitely higher than it was through much of last of the second half of 2017, but his approval rating is still no better than 42%. In fact, his approval in RCP has been in a channel between 38 and 42.

    As for the generic ballot, Republican still aren’t above 40%. The margin between Republicans and Democrats has narrowed, but all of the movement is with the Democrats. Sometimes, they poll in the upper 40’s and other times they poll in the middle 40’s.

    If Trump and the Republicans start to consistently poll in the mid 40’s, then we’ll have something. For now, I think the “movement” we’ve seen is little more than noise.

  338. dblaikie says:

    Bitter, I believe I said, all polling is flawed. I have been consistent with that view for over a year.

    Wobbles

    You’re so full of skit it’s squirting out your ears. Just thought you should know.

  340. Robbie says:

    Take away the first two months of Trump’s presidency, he’s only been above 42% in the RCP average for two periods. The first period was April 17 to May 10.

    The other period where Trump was above 42% was a stretch in February 2018 when he bopped around that level and then for a few days at the end of March.

    The point is 42% in RCP is clearly a key support/resistance level for Trump. If he can break above that level, then I think it will help Republicans across the board. Right now though, he bumps up against 42% and then recedes. Move above 42% and stay there, then 42% becomes a support level.

  341. Messy57 says:

    304. It’s a technical thing. “Target” means you’re going to be indicted. One cannot indict a sitting president, which means he cannot be a target.

    It has been reported that Meuller and his people are working on a report that will include recommendations on whether to impeach him or not.

    They do the same thing for judges.

  343. Phil says:

    A couple of weeks ago I had it at a D 25 to 30 seat pickup in the House. I now have it at a D + 35 pickup.

    IMO a 35 seat pickup means Trump is probably impeached. Forty and it is a certainty. That is where we are heading. Trial in the senate preventing any Trump judicial appointments from getting through the senate the final two years of Trump’s term. It will gum up the works. That is the game Democrats are playing and they are right on track pulling it off. They won’t remove him, but that’s not the major goal here.

  344. Chicon says:

    I’ve come around to Robbie’s pov. It will likely be at least a 70 seat loss. And I know I can’t prove it, but it will be all on Trump.

  345. Phil says:

    I should point out that they won’t remove him because 67 vote is too heavy a lift. No matter. Gum up the works until Democrats take the senate in 2020. Assuming they get the WH there is no longer a filibuster available to stop any leftist Supreme Court nominee from a theoretical President Harris or some other leftist president.

  346. Phil says:

    70 seats? No…but they may top out at 40. That is as good as 70.

  347. Chicon says:

    In 1994 Clinton lost 52 seats while at a 48% approval rate. In 2006 Bush lost 30 seats while at a 37% approval rate. So Bush lost 22 FEWER seats, with an approval rating 11% LOWER approval rating. Yep, JA is everything.

    -I’ll leave this decision to Tennessee voters…..and blame Blackburn, as well, if she can’t communicate well enough.

    If Corker can’t handle some bad words with Trump, it helps me to better understand his errors regarding the Iran deal.

  349. Phil says:

    You are basing everything on JA. There are limitations when you look at it district by district. To get to 70 you would need to flip dozens of solid red districts. Not going to happen. As much chance of that as the optimists in 2010 who were giddy about an 80 seat gain.

    Forty is possible, but, as I say, that is plenty enough to do the job.

    Actually, 70 would have a silver lining. Dems might accelerate their gun grabbing agenda. Any time they overplay their hand it causes the mask to drop. That’s always beneficial to the right in subsequent elections.

  350. Tgca says:

    So Messy says Mueller is working on a report recommending impeaching Trump. Since when is a special prosecutor hired to make impeachment recommendations? I did not know that is Rodenstein asked Mueller to consider impeachment.

    Impeachment is a political process so if Mueller was hired to assist in a political process, that is good to know.

  351. Chicon says:

    Phil, just having fun with Robbie’s logic. I have no prediction for seats won or lost. Might be good to have at least a few likely voter polls before getting all silly either way.

  352. Phil says:

    Chicon, ok. Got ya.

  353. Tgca says:

    It seems Robbie gets a woody anytime there is bad news for Trump. But when it’s the other way, he’s all limp and not around. Trump can have 80% approval with the electorate and he would still find reason to not support him. He’s just so irrational when it comes to Trump, a true Never Trump No Matter What. It’s kinda sad.

    Garbage internal poll. Also, why didn’t they poll the governor’s race? Or did they and not like the results.

  357. dblaikie says:

    “The survey had a generous sample for Democrats, which assumes a large enthusiasm gap in November. The poll had different percentages of registered voters than the state’s current registration breakdown — 42 percent Democrat, 36 percent Republican and 22 percent independent. The most recent voter registration statistics released by the secretary of state’s office show 38 percent of registered voters are Democrats, 34 percent are Republicans and 21 percent are nonpartisan.

    The poll undersampled both Trump and Hillary Clinton voters, with 40 percent of respondents saying they voted for the Republican in 2016 and 46 percent voting for Clinton. The actual election was much closer, with Clinton defeating Trump on a 48 to 46 percent margin.”

    This is the kind of crap that happens with all of these polls!! Why anyone takes them seriously is beyond me. What makes me laugh are people like Robbie who drone on and on about RCP average. 1. 3 or 4 in the average only poll adults. Only about 40% of adults in an off year election will even vote. 2. I don’t know about you but I was always taught that a poll was just a snap shot of the electorate yet RCP uses polls over 3 weeks old in their average. The way the news cycle changes in our society a poll over a week old is worthless even if it was accurate at the time of polling. 3. RCP does not factor in the historically proven stat. that Republicans are always under polled in these generic ballots by as much as 3 or 4 points. So for Robbie and the rest of the I believe the media crowd — if you are going to put your emphasis on polls at least use them correctly.

    – I see HHR’s resident ostrich is still HHR’s resident ostrich.

    Please tell us more about your feelings guy who thought Angle, Buck, COD, Mourdock, Milton Mengle Wolf, and McDaniel were good candidates.

    It seems Robbie gets a woody anytime there is bad news for Trump. But when it’s the other way, he’s all limp and not around. Trump can have 80% approval with the electorate and he would still find reason to not support him. He’s just so irrational when it comes to Trump, a true Never Trump No Matter What. It’s kinda sad.

    – Wrong. I care about the party. The party will be here long after President Moron is gone. I don’t give a rat’s rear end about that lifelong Democrat conman who fooled people like you.

    – Trump’s JA is 42% in RCP and the Republican number in the generic ballot is under 40%. Both of those numbers indicate a wipe out. If those numbers change, my view may well change.

    But where the numbers are is a wipeout scenario for Republicans and people like Mitch McConnell, who know a thing or two about winning elections, said the party is facing headwinds, maybe a category 3, 4, or 5.

    There’s a reason so may Republicans are retiring.

  392. Robbie says:

    It’s a brilliant strategy by Trump to wreck the economy with a trade war with China ahead of a midterm election that could decide whether or not he is impeached.

    And by the way, if Republicans get blasted in the House and Democrats do impeach him, don’t be so sure the Republicans in the Senate won’t vote to throw Trump overboard if his approval goes through the floor and getting rid of him would be better for 2020.

    More proof of the effectiveness of gun control laws in reducing the murder rate:

    “Hospitals in Mayor Sadiq Khan’s London resemble those in a war zone, a senior surgeon working to save victims of the capital’s surging violent crime wave has said.
    The shock comments made Thursday morning come after two more men were killed overnight, a couple of days after another night of violence saw a boy, 16, stabbed to death and a 17-year-old girl shot in a “drive by”.

    Wednesday night’s killings, both in Hackney, East London, brought the death toll from suspected murder in the capital to 50 so far this year, pulling away from New York City, which London overtook at the weekend.

    Dr. Mark Griffiths, the lead surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust in East London, said that knife and gun wounds had moved from a “niche” part of his job to a daily chunk of his workload, and a growing number of victims were “children”.”

    Perhaps, like in the U.S., the underlying cause of a high murder rate are social factors?

Blues did an admirable job to get to that point with all the trades and injuries – maybe they tightened up. But they got a reprieve, maybe they’ll loosen up.

    Instead of ICE detainers in sanctuary states & cities, federal criminal complaints will be filed against every detained illegal alien. Period.

    Since we don’t have adequate detention space to house even the illegals who are being apprehended now, we will re-open all military facilities which are not being used at the moment for that purpose.

    I’m not going to hold my breath until all these things happen. It sounds a lot like… a revolution.

  474. NYCmike says:

    “One MCAT practice question (from a collaboration between the AAMC and online-education nonprofit Khan Academy), for example, asks whether the wage gap between men and women is the result of bigotry, sexism, racism, or biological differences (no other options are provided, and the “correct” answer is sexism). Another asks whether the “lack of minorities such as African Americans or Latinos/Latinas among university faculty members” is due to symbolic racism, institutional racism, hidden racism, or personal bias (the correct answer is institutional racism). Yet another asks test-takers to select from a list of debatable definitions for “the terms ‘sex’ and ‘gender.’ ””

  475. NYCmike says:

    “Taken on their own, these questions may not seem particularly invidious. And it would be easy enough for a good test-taker to select answers that would be marked as correct, whether he or she agreed with them or not. But the changes nonetheless reflect Kirch’s greater goal: to test “not just what students know,” as he said in a 2015 interview about the test, “but how they think.””

There are current conditions in our favor. China has deep rifts between their cities and everywhere else and they’re over built. With a per capital gdp of about 1/7th of ours a 500B trade surplus puts them more at risk then us. However our press and politicians make them believe they’ll outlast us. Their only concern is trump unpredictability. Stay on the old path and we will lose our global advantages for certain.

  481. Tgca says:

    I agree that the Chinese have more to lose then we do if they play hardball.

    1st, this ridiculous notion that they control the US with the US debt they hold by flooding the market will reduce the values of their own portfolio significantly. It would be like Apple admitting they used child labor to build their phones and have been listening in on folks purposely or Facebook admitting they spy on folks and sell their data to others. You invite your own demise with such actions. The US economy can survive a trade war, China, would not do so well so I think this is all posturing before they cut a deal

    2nd, if China thinks it can easily shift away from the US to Europe for customers, good luck with that. Europe is much more vigilant in protecting its states and against unfair practices against them and would not put up with China’s BS of stealing technology and selling knock offs in their market. Too many near socialist countries in Europe.

    3rd, China cannot afford to have its currency devalued. Remember, they have enormous age population not in the work force, and much overbuilt infrastructure not economically producing. It takes money to run this and when no one wants your currency, that is not a good position to be in.

  482. Tgca says:

    Also, I don’t think Trump wants a trade surplus with China, I think he is pushing to make it more equitable. There’s a big difference, and that is why I think the Chinese will ultimately cut a deal with the US. The world is changing and China cannot continue with such predatory practices and expect to gain the trust of trading partners to carry their goods. People are not looking to emigrate to China because they expect a better life there, people still want to come to the west for a better life. I think after 20+ years of being in the world economy, China is going through phases of adaptation and I think they will be entering the 2nd phase soon, and that might be a bit painful for them.

    #508 mnw, The memo signed by Trump orders the Department of Homeland Security, in coordination with other agencies, to submit a report to the president within 45 days “detailing all measures that their respective departments have pursued or are pursuing to expeditiously end ‘catch and release’ practices.”

    The report instructs departments to share information on any contracts to construct or operate detention facilities along the border as well as steps taken to assign asylum officers at detention facilities, among other measures.

    As part of the order, Trump is requesting “a detailed list of all existing facilities, including military facilities, that could be used, modified, or repurposed to detain aliens for violations of immigration law at or near the borders of the United States.”

    Trump has also directed Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to identify any other resources or steps “that may be needed to expeditiously end ‘catch and release’ practices.”

  497. Chicon says:

    MG – the point was what replaces catch and release? Catch and hold (and feed, educate, and heal) until the hearing? Catch and toss back over the line? Shoot b4 they cross?

    Do they have the space for catch and hold? And most importantly, will the Judiciary go along?

  498. Chicon says:

    512 – Hi, Mitt.

  499. Wes says:

    Chicon, not everyone Republican who loses is a Deadender. For instance, John Thune lost narrowly yo Tim Johnson in 2002. However, Thune learned from his mistakes and two years later claimed Daschle’s scalp.

    Some Deadenders involve into respectable pols.

    In 2014, Matt Bevin ran a q u ixotic campaign based on nothing but Tea Party rage to try to take out Mitch McConnell. After McConnell trounced him, Bevin learned from his mistakes, moved past the mindless Tea Party lunacy, and united the KYGOP behind him to win the governorship by a solid margin. He’s been a successful Governor who even worked hard to help Republicans win the KY State House.

    None of that would have happened had Bevin remained the unelectable Tea Party attack dog he was in 2014.

    Similarly in 2010, Ken Buck won a primary because of Tea Party backing but went on to run a disastrous campaign that alienated voters and gave Mike Bennet a full term in the Senate. Four years later, Buck, realizing Republicans had a strong candidate for Senate in Cory Gardner, agreed to drop down from the Senate race to the race to replace Gardner. He serves in the House to this day.

    Sadly too many Deadenders–such as Christine O’Donnell and Roy Moore–are merely self-indulgent gadflies whose candidacies do nothing but hurt Republican electoral chances and never produce any salutory results.

  500. Tina says:

    Trumps memo ending catch and release is racist.

    Only if hillary were president.

  501. Tina says:

    Trump should have ended catch and release, actualky obamas catch and release 2.0, when he took office, giving 45 day notice.

    I am sure some leftist judge will halt him, and the jebots will be happy.

    The original catch and release dates back to failed President Mute 43.

  502. Tina says:

    If they do not have enough detention facilities, Gitmo is an option,

  503. Chicon says:

    Wes, The Witch and The Judge were simply wack-job candidates who were not talented politicians. Akin, too. To me, those that voted for them are the deadenders, but they possess the same right to vote as me.

    What’s the cure for talentless politicians getting nominated? Some governing entity banning them (if so, who appoints them?)? Remove the primary vote of those that vote for wack-jobs? To me, the easiest path is for elected representatives to govern like they run.

  504. Chicon says:

    Tina, GITMO would be full in a day or two.

  505. Wes says:

    Unlike Mikey and the Paulbots, Chicon, I’ve never been a fan of eliminating voters from the candidate selection process. Primaries, even when they result in moronic candidates like the above mentioned, are far better than activist-dominated conventions that put all the selection power in the hands of attendants rather than the broader electorate.

    While I agree about pols’ governing as they run, that doesn’t always work. Jeff Flake sports a 97% ACU rating but is probably the most hated man in Arizona. Martha McSally is less conservative than Flake but will likely replace him in November, where because of his horrendous popularity ratings despite his conservatism, Flake would certainly have lost to guaranteed general election loser Kelli Ward.

    I think the national GOP handled things best in 2014 when they took the Deadenders on directly and systematically dismantled them one by one. The Deadenders howled and screeched and stomped their feet in frothing rage. In the end, electable Republicans nearly swept the competitive races–especially in the Senate–and won decisively.

    That should be the template for future elections.

  506. Chicon says:

    Agree on several points, Wes. There are exceptions to the govern as you run rule. I know you’re not a fascist, and are good with actual elections. Also agree that nobody can assume they’re unbeatable, and that the best way for higher quality candidates to win is to go at their opponents.

    I will say, though, that the voter is the customer; and they’re never wrong, even if they are. If they don’t buy what we’re selling, we have to adjust.

    I think it’s embarrassing for the NHL that 16 of the 31 teams make the playoffs. I’m sure it makes economic sense, but it cheapens everything.

    STL doesn’t have an NBA franchise, of course. So my kids have never been to an NBA game. They have been to lots of Blues games, and quite a few Cards games, including 2 World Series.

Politics has no place in making sure corporations adhere to regulatory standards.”

  573. Tgca says:

    This is outrageous. Mueller had FBI raid a sitting POTUS personal lawyer on a matter that has nothing to do with the investigation. This is unprecedented based on the issues at hand. Sessions and Rodenstein should reign him in or fire him. If not, they should both resign. Congress should also weigh in and push Sessions to immediately seek a special counsel of the FBI and that should include investigating Mueller, as this appears to be a witch hunt.

    This does irreparable damage to POTUS and the US with these scare gov abuse tactics. Unless you’re a bipartisan lib or the MSM, I do not see how this is relevant to the country. Trump should refuse to cooperate any further and let this go to the Supreme Court to decide.

    I truly believe this is detrimental to our democracy. What’s next, raiding the WH or Trumps residence?

  578. Tgca says:

    Sessions needs to take control of the DOJ. He recused himself from the Russian investigation but not all other things that would normally fall under his jurisdiction. He is not doing his job and this is getting out of control it can no longer be contained. The MSM, the government, and politicians are working 24/7 to destroy POTUS without a care to the impact on our democracy by allowing a very dangerous precedent and this idiot DOJ stands by with his elf face because he is worried about his reputation. What a coward Sessions is. He is an extremely weak AG.

    I hope this moron realizes any negative impact on the party will reflect extremely bad on him, and make him a pariah to most in the GOP. He mind as well come out and endorse Nancy Pelosi for Speaker because the longer this plays out, the more damage to the party and the agenda.

  579. Tgca says:

    Trump can’t fire Mueller. And of course, the McCains of the world would have a fit if he did. I am convinced the GOP needs new leadership in Congress. Get rid of Ryan and McConnell. They are weaklings and afraid to fight the good fight. What are they waiting for? If you can’t stand up when you have a majority, when can you stand up and get things done? This is not about Trump but about the agenda. If POTUS can’t push through the agenda then what’s the point of having a GOP Congress?

  580. Tina says:

    According to article on RCP, Loretta Lynch contradicts Comey in interview on the Clinton matter vs investigation issue. She says he never raised issues. She claims that the meeting was like any other meeting and he raised no concerns. They had a full and open discussion about it. She reiterated again that no concerns were raised by Comey when asked directly if Comey raised any concerns.

    So either Comey is misleading Congress, Lynch is lying, or a combination of both.

  583. Tgca says:

    MSM is already talking indictment or Trump refusing to testify. That voice of reason Joy Reid in discussing with so called legal experts that if Trump refuses that federal agents can arrest him in the WH and throw him jail until he testifies. …and the American people and SCOTUS are going to stand by and see what happens? Really?

    At that point, we mind as well tear up the constitution and states start receding from the Union because there would be riots in the street and chaos in the markets. This is the danger to our Republic and I venture most libs and MSM would love it.

    The FBI does not get a warrant from a judge to raid POTUS personal attorney unless they convince the judge there is some sort of crime. The judge would have to be extremely stupid or extremely partisan to issue such a warrant on a sitting POTUS. Therefore, I believe they think they have something either on Trump, or more likely on his attorney. But that will not stop them from looking at other information they find in the attorneys files yo go fishing and that is just plain wrong unless this is a serious crime and nature. Wait for the leaks to start now.

    What are you shocked about Tgca? Did you think, for even one second, that this inquisition was anything other than a bureaucratically anointed, honest to God coup attempt?

    Because that’s what this has always been about. The deep state – unelected leftist thugs and special interests – have been driving American policy, both foreign and domestic, for decades. All to enrich themselves at the expense of the country. Trump is threatening to end that gravy train. That’s it. That’s all there is to it.

    Theses people are above the law. That’s not an opinion or conspiracy. It’s simple fact. Think of all the crimes that we are discovering being committed by the swamp rats on almost on a daily basis. The political spying, falsifying evidence, unmasking, lying under oath, withholding evidence for blatant political reasons, operating institutions as political weapons. Yet, nothing ever happens to them, even when their crimes are exposed. Comey 100% committed at least two federal crimes – leaking classified material and lying under oath. What is happening about this? Is anyone lifting a finger about it. The weasel is about to go on a book tour and make millions.

    If one group of people are aloud to violate laws without consequences, yet another group will have the crushing weight of weaponized goverment stomping on their throats without proabale cause or due process, then are we really a nation with laws?

    Mueller can do whatever he wants. He is a political operative that has been granted immunity from the law, with the full understanding that his goal is the reversal of the 2016 election by any means necessary.

This is not about Trump but about the agenda. If POTUS can’t push through the agenda then what’s the point of having a GOP Congress?

    Did you miss the infamous Ryan budget as well as keeping Garland off the Supreme Court?

    Here’s a thought:

    Maybe Trump should be a little more focused on an agenda nationally and coordinate with Ryan and McConnell to fashion one and market it.

    I love how Trumpkins think only the Republicans in Congress are culpable for anything.

    Well, here’s shat former President Harry Truman had to say about the President’s role in national policy:

    The buck stops here.

    Here’s what the Trumpkins say:

    -Odd.

    I stated he should have vetoed the last omnibus bill, and that he was WRONG to sign it. Trump made a terrible decision to sign terrible legislation.

    It was a bad bill, Mikey. After researching it, I concluded it was a major legislative faux pas.

    Keeping Garland off the Supreme Court?

    How is that such a YUGE accomplishment?

    There was precedence from the Vice President Biden when he was a Senator.

    Republicans had control of the committee (since they had control of the Senate) from which Garland would emerge.

    The media, along with Robbie and “CG”, had backed off because they thought Hillary was going to be the next President.

    The voters were in favor of the next President picking the next Justice.

    THERE WAS NO PRESSURE! It was the easiest call to make.

  623. Wes says:

    By the way, former Senator Daniel Akaka (D-HI) died a few days ago. RIP.

    He and Dan Inouye were born four days apart in 1924. Akaka spent 22+ years as HI’s junior Senator after the death of Spark Matsunaga. He was only the fifth Senator of purely Asian descent after Hiram Fong, Dan Inouye, S. I. Hayakawa, and Spark Matsunaga. Ironically he became his state’s senior Senator only in the twilight of his career, holding that status from Inouye’s death on 12-17-12 to the expiry of his term on 1-3-13.

  624. Bitterlaw says:

    If Sessions was going to recuse himself he should not have taken the job. Trump being the impetuous asss he is should not have let himself be fooled into a situation where a special prosecutor was appointed. We should prepare ourselves for the worst because trump surrounds himself with chaos and creates ann environment where allies cannot trust what he may do next. For me the constant drama he creates exhausts me. The shame of it all is that his policies are good yet his personality may negate it all and then some. I would never work for a jerk like him and I work well with jerks.

  629. Tgca says:

    It is one thing to go after an attorney if he is criminal but this is all too suspicious and smacks of Mueller trying to get into protected records that he otherwise can’t get so he can get dirt on Trump. I truly believe he does not have anything on Russia collusion or obstruction but now trying everything else. This is extremely dangerous. Open this door and every POTUS can end up being scrutinized this way. I blame Sessions for not reigning Rodenstein in. He can set the scope but he just refuses to act. He is not only endangering POTUS but the agenda the country has been on this last year. If this goes south, Sessions will become ridiculed and a stain on the GOP for years to come. What a freakin fool and weakling.

    I wonder which city will pick up the Miami Marlins team that is clearly unwanted in south Florida?

    Teams in the north country are struggling a little with attendance early in the baseball season, but one can understand given only die hards will sit for 2.5 hours on a frozen slab of aluminum trying to stay warm.

    But in Miami, they are already lagging badly in attendance…on pace to get numbers the Montreal Expos got in their final year before moving to DC.

    And in Miami, weather is NOT an issue. It has been hot and summer-like and yet their team is not wanted. People are voting with their feet and they do not want this team.

    I would think the Hampton Roads cities could get a team except that the Nationals are too close by (3 hours away).

    Not sure what other city could sustain a team.

  648. Phil says:

    Frustrated by the Astros lack of hitting. They can’t score any runs. Puzzling. Good news is that they’re not giving up any either and are 9-2. Go figure.

    672 – same with the Mets. The Mets are not really playing well right now. Strange to say given they are 8-1.

    They have won their last six, but only one of those games was the margin more than two runs.

    The pitching has been decent overall, but several times the last week they got out of jams like bottom of the ninth, bases loaded, one out and infield in…trying to avoid a walk-off loss. And the pitcher strikes out two batters to extend the game…that they later won.

    But the Mets are not scoring enough runs. They are tops in baseball for runs allowed at 24, but for runs scored they are tied for 11th at 43.

    Mets have but one power-hitting threat from the right side of the plate in Cespedes, but he is a streak hitter and right now he is cold as ice.

  651. Bitterlaw says:

    Where to move the Marlins? Hmmmmm. What about Cuba? Huge baseball fan base and talent pool. Of course, MLB would have to subsidize it because the population is poor. Also, players might defect at a high rate at first but there is that huge talent pool.

    The US market seems pretty tapped out.

  652. DW says:

    675 – You are right, it is tapped out. MLB needs to really focus on this problem or they are going to face the problem of closure of teams. Miami isn’t the only struggling team.

    Cuba is interesting, but what about the Dominican Republic? They are just as poor as Cuba though.

    Looking at the map trying to find large cities that don’t have teams, there isn’t anything that jumps out:

    VA Beach/Norfolk/Portsmouth/Chesapeake? Too close to DC, and these cities are sort of spread out, so fans would need to be really committed and willing to drive to and from games.

    Portland? Too small a market probably

    Las Vegas? Not a good fit

    San Antonio? Perhaps. Texas is certainly large enough to sustain three teams if California can have five.

    Salt Lake City? Maybe someday, but still too small.

    The states of North Carolina and Tennessee have significant populations, but not quite enough in one area. Nashville probably is too small and the Raleigh-Durham area probably the same…too stretched out an area to regularly fill seats.

    Jacksonville, FL? – If Miami/south Fl didn’t work, one has to ask why Jacksonville would.

    Mexico City? They certainly have the population center, but not sure it works out.

    New Orleans? Not sure why it wouldn’t work if there was enough interest.

    Oklahoma City? Not sure big enough.

    State of California? there are some huge population centers but the state already has five teams.

    But given the strong Latino interest in the game, MLB needs to embrace that as part of their future success and award a team to either Mexico or the Dominican Republic…or Cuba someday if they can become a little more friendly to Western Civilization.

    “…and the pitch on the way, and a High Fly Ball! DEEP to left field…way back…looking up! GONE! Home Run Gary Carter!”

  670. NYCmike says:

    Whenever someone starts comparing people to WWII tyrants, they need to read some of the accounts of the political prisoners who survived. The stories of the Jewish survivors are so bad its hard to read. I remember reading one that told how the Nazi guards would indiscriminately take a Jewish prisoner and kick right through a leg inflicting a gruesome compound fracture. The victim would wallow in agony until he or she died. Another… a guard caught a 13 year old boy talking to his father, which was apparently against the rules, so he struck the boy in the head so hard with his fist he killed him with one blow–an act that prompted him to go boasting among the other guards as to his feat.

    There were war criminal trials for a reason. I cannot even type the words to describe what the Nazis did in their medical experiments on live Jewish children.

    2) A majority of the fans were Mets fans.

    The Mets got 44k at their home opener, followed by 36k before settling in around 21-22k.

    Many years ago on HHR I got embroiled in a bitter argument over whether or not Mars One was a hoax.

    Mars One was a well-publicized private venture to send volunteers on a one-way mission to the red planet.

    My position was that it was a hoax. A relatively easy scam whereby they could raise funds off the starry-eyed (pun intended) sci-fi fans desperate for mankind to go where no one has gone before.

    Just keep raising funds, and pushing off deadlines. At the time there was very little evidence that the program was a hoax. The wiki page was taking it quite seriously.

    I haven’t thought of it for a while, so I checked the wiki page today, and you get the strong drift that 1) It very well could be a hoax, or 2) If its not a hoax by intent, it has played out just like it was one, or 3) Maybe it started out with honest intentions but the reality has caught up with them and it ain’t going anywhere.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_One

    If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck…

    Mars One had no real viable plan for transporting people to Mars, let alone creating a self sustaining colony. Sure, they slapped together many popular Mars mission concept (build a ship in Low-Earth-Orbit/powered landing/hydroponics/etc). But it never actually provided a plan for how to accomplish any of this.

    Build an interplanetary ship in LEO? Okay. How is it going to be done? Are there any designs for the vessel? When will construction begin and on what time frame will it be completed? What’s the cost? How are you going to get the parts in space for assembly?

    Most interplanetary ship designs have the vessel at least as large as the ISS in terms of livable space. And that took over $100 billion and many nations to complete (mostly due to launch costs). How are they going to fund a project like this?

    Mars One didn’t provide details for any of this.

    On the other hand, look at what SpaceX is doing. Not only do they have detailed plans for a Mars colony (and return missions), but they are actively developing the technology and launch methods to make it happen. They have already revolutionized the rocket industry with partially reusable boosters, which has brought down the cost of of launches by an order of magnitude. Their BFR rocket currently being developed will be able to out lift the SaturnV while still being 100% reusable for both stages. And it’s large enough to comfortably fit 50-100 people for a 4-6 month journey. They are also investing in technologies for in site refineries fuels which would allow the BFR to process fuel on Mars for return trips.

    SpaceX’s plans are detailed and goal oriented, with clear benchmarks to measure their success. They have a funding method in place (Falcon 9 missions) and are actively building the infrastructure needed to make this dream a reality.

    One of these is real. The other is a scam.

    Trump floating firing Mueller and now floating firing Rosenstein.

    No real reason. Just Trump thinking he’s above the law.

    Clear obstruction of justice and many other crimes lurking beneath given how much Trump is resisting simple due process.

    Impeachment within a year.

  761. Tgca says:

    Since when is considering firing someone who you think is rogue obstruction of justice? Are we now criminalizing thoughts over actions? I wish to beat child murderer to death, should I be arrested and tried for my thoughts? Until someone commits a criminal act that is determined to impede the investigation it’s not obstruction.

    For Trump and supporters, its not about the investigation but whether folks are rogue and abusing their authority for a specific outcome. If this were a normal criminal case and cops and prosecutors behaved this way, the case would be dismissed.

    Remember, from the small sample of information released we clearly see bias on the investigation team. Geez! McCabe was fired for lying on 4 occasions under investigation, as determined by career FBI and IG personnel. The FBI sends folks to jail for the littlest lie but you think that’s obstruction of justice because Trump applauds it and wants to see others he strongly feels are biased investigators get their due.

  762. Tgca says:

    Yo Wilson

    Of course if Dems take the House they’ll try to impeach. That’s a political process and nit a crimi always one.

    As for the underlying crimes? Please tell us those lurking crimes. What are they? What statutes have been violated? How do you know about these? You work fir DOJ or FBI and have info we don’t? Please elaborate.

If Cohen committed crimes, go after him for that but to take client files and look through them for info is crazy. No amount of internal FBI firewalls is going to stop people from sharing what they find. I also expect leaks to occur about info found whether it’s criminal or not. I think this is designed to go after Trump and damage him as much as possible even if they find nothing against him. Anyone who can’t see that is naive.

    He should have listened to those on Capitol Hill and all those economic experts on CNN and MSNBC saying what a bad idea this was to pressure China.

    Stuff Like: “I hired a hit man to shoot Verna Va Voom in the toe so she won’t rat on us” is NOT privileged because it’s a conspiracy to commit a crime.

    The 10 Senate seats most likely to flip in 2018
    .
    . Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.)

    Heller is the only Republican incumbent defending a seat in a state Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton won in 2016 — bad news for him as Democratic enthusiasm surges. His opponent, Rep. Jacky Rosen (D), has posted strong fundraising numbers and is trying to press Heller for his waffling on the GOP health-care repeal and his public role in crafting the GOP tax bill.

    But Heller has recently seen a spate of good news that’s improved his chances of surviving in November. Primary challenger Danny Tarkanian dropped out of the race, allowing the senator to avoid making overtures to the GOP’s right flank that could hurt him in the general election. Republicans are also slowly cutting into Democrats’ voter registration advantage in Nevada.

    2. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.)

    McCaskill has always faced a tough road to reelection. She’s one of just three Democrats elected statewide in Missouri, which Trump won by almost 20 points. And the GOP is already seizing on McCaskill’s ardent support for Clinton in 2016 as a way to rile up the base.

    Still, she’s won a reputation as a strong campaigner and a consistently prolific fundraiser this cycle.

    State Attorney General Josh Hawley is still considered a top GOP recruit. But Republicans are closely watching his first-quarter fundraising haul following grumblings about his disappointing fundraising pace last year. The investigations into blackmail allegations against Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens (R) could add a tinge of scandal to the Republican brand in the state.

    3. Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.)

    The GOP primary between Rep. Luke Messer, Rep. Todd Rokita and businessman Mike Braun remains one of the nastiest in the nation. The bruising primary fight will also draw down GOP cash reserves before the general election.

    The ferocity of the primary gives Donnelly space to position himself as a bipartisan legislator, and he posted his best fundraising total of his career last quarter. But Donnelly will still have a rough go in Vice President Pence’s backyard. The Democrat’s fundraising still falls far short of the totals raised by many other Democratic incumbents, and his Republican challenger will have months to build his funds back up.

    4. Arizona’s open seat (vacated by GOP Sen. Jeff Flake)

    Both parties think their leading candidates can win in Arizona. Reps. Martha McSally (R) and Kyrsten Sinema (D) are strong fundraisers who know how to win tough fights. McSally is a veteran who can straddle the line between appealing to the right and to moderate voters, while Sinema is a Blue Dog Democrat with a compelling story who Democrats believe can compete statewide.

    Sinema is a virtual lock for the Democratic nomination, but McSally has a rockier path in the GOP primary. She faces former state Sen. Kelli Ward and former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio — two controversial candidates who could steer the race to the right. Arizona’s August primary is held late in the cycle, giving the GOP nominee just 10 weeks to recover from a potentially rough primary.

    5. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.)

    Republicans caught a break when they convinced Rep. Kevin Cramer to mount a late bid against Heitkamp. Cramer has made his campaign about fierce loyalty to Trump, who won the state by 36 points in 2016. Cramer can also run on the statewide name recognition he’s built up as a three-term congressman in an at-large seat.

    But Republicans had wavered on Cramer before, looking for other alternatives to the gaffe-prone congressman before ultimately settling on him as the top choice. And while Trump repeatedly pushed Cramer to run, the president has also been on good terms with Heitkamp, who has appeared on stage with him in North Dakota and flew on Air Force One.

    The escalating trade war between Trump and China could also dampen the GOP’s prospects. China’s retaliatory tariffs threaten to hurt jobs in the agriculture-heavy state, an issue that could weigh on Cramer.

    6. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.)

    Gov. Rick Scott’s (R) Monday entry into the race is a big win for Republicans, who previously faced long odds taking the swing-state seat. Scott will give Nelson the toughest race of his Senate career. The two-term governor has a formidable campaign operation, and his vast personal wealth will be an asset in Florida’s pricey media markets.

    But this will also be a much different race for Scott. In the past, he’s only run in Republican wave years, winning by razor-thin margins even when the political atmosphere favored the GOP. And his closeness to Trump, who personally recruited him for the Senate race, could also be a potential drag in a state the president won by a little more than a point.

    7. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.)

    Manchin faces an uphill climb keeping his seat in a state that went for Trump by nearly 42 points. But Manchin could benefit from a brutal GOP primary fight.

    The two-person race between Rep. Evan Jenkins and state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey has been upended by a surge from former coal CEO Don Blankenship. Blankenship is polling well in the primary, even after serving a prison term over a fatal mine explosion. While Blankenship has the wealth to dominate the airwaves in the primary fight, Republicans fear he can’t win over more moderate voters in November.

    Trump is going on the offensive against Manchin, after an initial show of bipartisanship with the senator. Flanked by Jenkins and Morrisey at a recent roundtable in West Virginia, Trump slammed Manchin for his vote against the tax overhaul.

    8. Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.)

    Wisconsin was once seen as a reach for Republicans. But the barrage of attack ads from outside GOP groups have softened Baldwin up ahead of November, prompting a flurry of Democratic spending meant to shore up the senator.

    It’s still unclear who will emerge from the contentious GOP primary. Marine Corps veteran Kevin Nicholson, a former Democrat, is the pick of top conservative groups, but state Sen. Leah Vukmir has some big Wisconsin names in her corner.

    9. Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.)

    Tester has built his campaign message around his willingness to work with Trump, a key argument in a state the president won by 20 points. And while the GOP hopefuls — state auditor Matt Rosendale, Judge Russ Fagg and businessman Troy Downing — are more focused on attacking Tester than blasting each other, the fluid primary still gives Tester some room.

    Fortunately for Tester, Democrats aren’t extinct in Montana — Gov. Steve Bullock (D) cruised to reelection in 2016, even as Trump dominated.

    Still, Tester has never won reelection with the majority of the vote, winning instead after a Libertarian candidate siphoned off votes from the GOP. This year, the presence of both a Green Party candidate and a Libertarian candidate on the ballot complicates that calculus.

    10. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio)

    Judging only by its 2016 numbers, Ohio should be more competitive. The state is drifting right — Trump won by 8 points, and all of the top statewide officeholders are Republicans. Still, the GOP has struggled to dent Brown, and he’s pulled in impressive fundraising totals.

    Republican front-runner Rep. Jim Renacci has faced a spate of bad headlines in recent weeks about accusations that he failed to disclose political donations while registered as a lobbyist. He is looking to best businessman Mike Gibbons in the primary.

  793. Robbie says:

    Republicans are approaching a point where they’re going to have to decide whether it’s better to throw Trump out and hope a few months of Pence calms the waters and their own election chances or whether they should do nothing, lose the House by a large number, and watch the Democrats impeach Trump in 2019.

    I know the Trump University students at HHR, like the valedictorian Jason fraud and NYCmike, will stick their heads in the sand and say everything is MAGA, but it’s not. A terrible reckoning on the order of 1994 and 2010 is coming for Republicans. The stain of Trump is going to be long lasting.

  794. Phil says:

    In case anyone was wondering about the Republican prospects in the House, Ryan’s retirement ought to be the tell tale sign.

    Republicans lose anywhere from 25-35 seats in the House. I realistically believe a loss of 30. I therefore agree with Robbie that the House will almost certainly flip. Unlike Robbie, however, I’m just not giddy about it.

  795. Phil says:

    Pence calming the waters? Yeah, once Trump is gone Kimmel will cut Pence slack on a nightly basis and the MSM will call off the dogs. If you believe that I have some swamp land to sell you.

You can say “but muh Rasmussen” all you like, but deep down you know it’s a joke poll and that’s why no professional ever quotes it. The pre-Trump Phil never would have fallen for this garbage.

    I’m pissed because a generational chance to reshape the Supreme Court with a two term or even three term Republican presidency is about to go by the wayside. A 7-2 conservative majority is now dead.

    I’m pissed the party is now going to be stained with Trump and his vulgar race baiting populism for a long time, and at the very moment Hispanic voters, who have always been culturally conservative, are growing in electoral importance.

    I’m pissed the United States is receding from the world at a time when it should be leading it because we have an emotionally unstable moron for president who governs by what he sees on Fox & Friends and hears Sean Hannity tells him on the phone.

    But sure Phil. Claim I’m giddy. If that’s what makes you feel better about supporting Trump and this catastrophe, go for it. Fall back on his promise to build the wall. Praise him for pulling the US out of a non-binding climate agreement that no court would have ever recognized. Do whatever you need to do.

    – Rasmussen is garbage and you know it Phil. Robo-polling is not even allowed in something like 10 states. So tell me this. How does Rasmussen conduct a credible national poll of all 50 states when it can only poll in 40 states?

    If Rasmussen isn’t a garbage pollster (spoiler- it is), why does no professional strategist ever mention it? Why did FoxNews discontinue its association with Rasmussen after 2010 when it blew so many races (remember the FoxNews Pulse Rasmussen polls?).

    Rasmussen is the Research2000 of our time. They may not be making up polls out of thin air, but they clearly put out garbage because they can’t even poll in every state. I remember when everyone here used to drool over Strategic Vision polls until we found out they were fake polls as well.

    And by the way, if you want to gush over 2016, what about Rasmussen in 2012? Remember how this forum was convinced it was the only honest pollster who was accurately capturing Romney’s vote. How’d that work out?

Slows down the process but doesn’t stop it. Oh by the way, once Texas is gone, that “conservative movement” you claim to be so concerned about is dead and buried. Try getting to 270 without Texas.

    Take a nice long look at California, Robbie. Now tell me again about “boob bait” and how the border doesn’t matter. I’m all ears.
    Same thing is happening in Texas BTW but slower. We don’t hand out driver’s licences by which illegals can use to register to vote and we have laws against cities shielding illegals. Slows down the process but doesn’t stop it. Oh by the way, once Texas is gone, that “conservative movement” you claim to be so concerned about is dead and buried. Try getting to 270 without Texas. Yeah, borders – boob bait.

    – Yes. Let’s take a look at California. It was a reliably Republican state at the presidential level for decades. Republicans won 9 out of 10 presidential elections from 1952 to 1988.

    The along came Pete Wilson’s race baiting gubernatorial campaign in 1994 that made Prop 187 its center piece. And what happened? Although he won his race, he energized Hispanics in a way no Democrat ever could have done. And as a result, the last two decades have seen California go from toss up to surefire lock for Democrats precisely because of Hispanics. Crap, we can’t even find a respectable statewide candidate there anymore.

    Contrast Californian with your own state, Phil. At the very time Pete Wilson was race baiting, GWB reached out to Hispanics and brought them into the party there. Now, Texas is a dominant Republican state where Hispanics vote for Republicans.

    But sure. Let’s follow the Pete Wilson route nationally. It worked so well for Republicans in California.

    Robbie sez Republicans will lose the House unless Trump gets to 45 JA. Also sez seats gained or lost is absolutely tied to President’s JA. Clinton had 48 JA and lost 50 seats. Pure genius….

    – Pure genius is you, the guy who fell for the conspiracy theory the DNC murdered Seth Rich. You still haven’t disavowed it by the way which leads me to believe you are a troll just like Jonesy was.

    As for the House, only a dolt like you would try and compare what happened to Clinton in 1994 to today. The political dynamics of today are nothing like that era or before. Until that point, there were plenty of races across the country where the Democrat was the conservative candidate.

    Today, the parties are ideologically pure. There are no conservative Democrats just as there are no liberal Republicans. And more to the point, the country is now firmly center-right so the advantage automatically goes to the Republicans just as it did to the Democrats up until the early 1990’s.

    As for job approval, my view about 45% was based on there being a hidden vote for Trump as there was in 2016. I no longer believe that is the case. I’d probably say 47% is going to be a better gauge, but it really doesn’t matter because Trump’s not getting to 45% anyway.

    As someone who lived in CA for nearly 20 years, I can tell you it made no major difference with Pete Wilson because the state was headed to massive migration from Mexico with mostly poor folks who relied on gov benefits to sustain them, and the CA Dems ceased control by making promises that the GOP could not. People love to use Wilson as a cop out for the inevitable occurring on a border state that needed resources that were so accessible without going through normal channels. CA had been moving left for nearly 30 years and no stopping it because of the coastal cities attraction of poor minority voters along with classic elitist liberals to replace the changing demographics. I saw the dramatic change myself from when I 1st arrived there in 1990. It was well under way. That’s like saying NYC moved left because of Giuliani’s reign where he was tough on crime and they called him a Nazi.

    1980 census – California 22% Hispanic
    2010 census – California 39% Hispanic

    It’s math. Where do you think the almost doubling of the Hispanic percentage of the total California came from? I have a clue for you. It came from south of the border encouraged by the California elitists. It’s about reshaping the electorate. Funny how you conveniently ignore the reshaping of the electorate. It’s voting math. Democrats understand that. How you can’t understand that is beyond me. I think you understand it. You just don’t care. Again, you claim you are concerned about “the conservative movement”. This flies in the face of that.

    Also TX is not CA. It’s a totally different way of life in almost every aspect. Except for the less populated northern and western regions of CA with some southeast pockets as well, most of CA is like NY without the aggressive personalities. All the major coastal cities are communal in nature and d not think like Texans. So it’s a bad analogy because they’re different on most issues such as religion, education priorities, gun laws, economic growth, and many social issues. These had nothing to do with Pete Wilson. CA has been attracting lefties for decades and they simply surpassed the dying GOP.

    In addition, support for limited benefits to immigrants was very high in the AA community in CA because they felt they were getting shafted by immigrant priorities and the AA was hardly a GOP supporter. You simply do not understand that time if you think if it hadn’t been for Pete than CA would be a competitive GOP state today. I lived through it and remember it well.

    – Pete Wilson destroyed the Republican Party in California with his race baiting campaign in 1994. Prop 187 was a disaster that turned a whole generation of Hispanics into hard core Democrats.

    California’s turn to Democrat had nothing to do with massive migration from Mexico. If it did, then why have Texas, especially, and Arizona remained reliably Republican?

    Californian was lost to Democrats because the party in the state took an excessively hardline towards immigrants. Texas has become a reliable Republican state because the party under GWB and Rick Perry reached out and welcomed immigrants.

    Unfortunately, Trump has decided to go the Pete Wilson route with his boondoggle wall and it’s going to have longterm consequences for the Republican Party. Trump’s dream for a whiter America isn’t going to work.

    Also, the more left CA became, the most re left it attracted. Clearly that is seen in San Francisco, San Jose, LA, Berkeley, Oakland, Sacramento parts, and northern CA over the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges. That accounted for nearly half the states population.

    Zuckerberg just admitted to Congress how left Silicon Valley is and the vast majority of those are lefties attracted to tech and not minorities do it was a perfect storm of changing demographics due to immigration and lefty communal communities.

  834. Phil says:

    Texas Republicans oppose sanctuary cities and giving out driver’s licenses to illegals. Not exactly the reach out to Hispanic voters. In other words, we aren’t the magnet for illegals to cross the border anything like California so purple and blue state Texas hasn’t evolved nearly as quickly as California. Still they come.

    White population of Houston ISD K-12 – 7.6%
    White population of Dallas ISD K-12 6.6%

    I won’t even bother to look up stats for San Antonio and El Paso.

    Hispanic population of both Houston and Dallas districts is in excess of 65%. Where do you think this change in demography is coming from? It’s coming from south of the border and it isn’t legal. It’s math and slowly (at least in Texas) becoming voting math.

    Border problem? Boob bait. The statement that illegal immigration is just a trickle is the kind of BS crap you would hear on MSNBC. The California and Texas demographic numbers don’t lie. They are real.

    – I will give you Pete Wilson because it’s the truth. Pete Wilson turned Hispanics away from the Republican Party in California with prop 187. Before 1994, Hispanics were voting for Republicans in numbers that helped them win the state in presidential years.

    As hard as this is for you to accept, immigration to America is a part of life that is going to continue whether you like it or not. I get it, though. You wish it could always be 1984, but that’s not the way the world works.

    When it comes to immigration, you have two choices. Accept it and find a way to integrate the new arrivals into the party, or ignore them as your party becomes smaller and smaller.

    In Texas, GWB and Perry chose to bring immigrants into the Republican Party. In California, Republican like Pete Wilson chose to hang the “not welcomed” sign. Texas is reliably red and California is reliably blue.

    Adapt or fade away, Phil. You’re choosing the Coulter/Hannity/Limbaugh path and it’s going to fail.

  838. Robbie says:

    Phil’s almost singular focus on immigration is precisely why Republicans struggle so much at the national level. It’s why Romney’s 2012 candidacy was doomed before he ever got out of the primary. In order to win the nomination, Mitt had to go way to the right on immigration to counter Newt and Santorum. Remember self deport?

    As Romney found, what appeals to the 30% of the voters who are hardcore conservatives doesn’t really appeal to the other 70% or so who are open to immigration. And since the Hispanic voting block is growing by leaps and bounds, turning them off right from the start doesn’t make much sense. After all, Republicans already start with a massive deficit with blacks. Why do the same with Hispanics?

    Immigration has replaced abortion as the wedge issue in the Republican Party. Abortion was always about morality and people have been moving towards the pro-life view for decades. On the other hand, the country has been moving towards a more immigrant friendly view which is the opposite of the Republican Party.

If you do nothing about the border that 35% won’t cut it any longer even in Texas. Thirty five percent of a continued swelling of that voting demographic means Republicans lose ground on a daily basis – yes, even in Texas.

    As a Latino, I find it insulting that you suggest Latinos are ignorant and can’t distinguish political rhetoric. The Latin community is well connected to information through their communities, churches, immigrant advocates, and their own media sources (they do get Spanish speaking TV, radio, internet, and other media sources).

    Latino culture is generally more conservative and traditional on social issues but more liberal on economic issues because most Latin countries are more liberal on such issues as well so transitioning to the US for them economically is not a big change in thought process as opposed to need basis. As new immigrants, they strongly utilize the services provided by gov and the biggest advocates for that are Dems. The GOP has never been a strong advocate of govt programs to support daily needs.

    It is not unusual to expect immigrants to lean to Dem because those policies impact them daily. It is not until later generations when New immigrants become more economically stable that the other issues become more important to them. It’s simple and been that way for decades. The change in CA now is the greatly increased demographic changes that drove CA more left and not politics.

    Trump got nearly 30% of the Latin vote, equal to or more than other recent previous GOP POTUS except GWB who got 35% and 40% and Dole who got like 20%. So clearly the Latino vote has been steady in the GOP for years and only blipped up for GWB and way low for Dole.

    It’s about what can you do for me today vs long-term thinking. If the GOP adopted Dem views then GOP would lose more of its base than it gained in Latino votes.

    – Phil, the reality is the country, especially Hispanics, isn’t where you are on immigration. If it were, then a wall promoting hardliner like Trump would have done far better than the 46% he got nationally or the 28% he got from Hispanics.

    If immigration is a hill you’re willing to die on regardless of an election, then fine. If you want to actually win the popular vote more than one time in the last seven elections, then you’re going to have to accept a viewpoint different from the one you have.

    Also, immigration is just not a first tier issue with the voting public. It’s a niche issue that animates the hard right and a portion of the hard left, but that’s it. Trying to make it top issue is always going to backfire for Republicans.

  874. Phil says:

As I said, the voting electorate of California has changed drastically and it hasn’t been because of LEGAL immigration. Those immigration policies have remained the same over the years. We all know what has changed the demographics of California and legal has nothing to do with it.

    Theynhate the illegals for a lot of reasons.

    – Hey, tinfoil. Got any updates on Trump’s surefire lawsuit about the GSA acquiring his transition emails? It’s been 16 weeks since that happened so I’m sure Trump took your advice, filed a lawsuit, and won. Just point me to the legal opinion. I’d love to read it.

    You say you can distinguish between illegal and legal immigration. Then you say “I don’t see immigration as some plot to aid the Democratic Party”

    Again, you say you see the difference and then in the next breath lump the two together again.

    I have never said a thing about legal immigration policies. Not once. Those laws are pretty much the same year in and year out. What has changed over the last thirty years is the millions of illegals that have crossed the border. What does it say about how screwed up this is when you are accused of being Ann Coulter for wanting to enforce the law? That’s somehow radical? Since when?

    I never said it was necessarily the top issue. The uninhibited migration of illegals is changing the electorate and you ignore that at your own peril if you are a Republican. It gets to voting math and if you are truly worried about winning elections it might be a problem you want to see addressed. As I said, the voting electorate of California has changed drastically and it hasn’t been because of LEGAL immigration. Those immigration policies have remained the same over the years. We all know what has changed the demographics of California and legal has nothing to do with it.

    – Without a doubt, it is the issue that animates you more than any other here and by a wide margin.

    As for California, you are missing my point. The rhetoric Pete Wilson employed in backing Prop 187 turned even Republican friendly Hispanics away from the Republican Party. And regardless of how much illegal immigration has taken place, those legal immigrants have certainly produced offspring who have grown up believing Republicans weren’t welcoming or inclusive. Pete Wilson used Hispanics and a boogie man in 1994 and they, in turn, said hasta la vista to the Republican Party. It had nothing to do with legal vs. illegal. It was about tone and tactics.

    – At least NYCmike has given up the pretense he cares about Tea Party conservatism. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be a faithful follower of the lifelong Democrat who conned the party during the primary process.

  895. Phil says:

    The Hispanic demographic portion of the California population has almost doubled since Pete Wilson. To say the political state of California (one party Democratic) “has nothing to do with legal vs illegal” is something you just cannot say. The electorate is not anything like what it was in the 80s – that is due to illegal immigration. That is where the numbers come from. You can’t just gloss over that. There are now more than a million illegals in Los Angeles County alone. Go back to tgca’s post 893 for an excellent explanation as to why poor Hispanics vote Democratic (and almost all the illegals coming in are poor). I’m sorry, Robbie but you can’t just stick your head in the sand and say or do nothing about an open border.

    – As hard as this is for Mikey to understand, not everyone who votes Republican does so because he or she is a committed conservative who believes in limited government.

    The Republican Party is not the Conservative Party otherwise it would be called the Conservative Party. The Republican Party is home to the conservative movement, but conservatives are not its only members.

    But then again, I forget Mikey would like to see Republicans like Susan Collins, who vote for conservative judges, replaced by Democrats since they don’t adhere to his Tea Party vision.

  897. NYCmike says:

    Robbie,

    You speak about “conned the party” while replying to a link about conservative judges…….that makes absolutely no sense, even for you.

  898. NYCmike says:

    “But then again, I forget Mikey would like to see Republicans like Susan Collins, who vote for conservative judges, replaced by Democrats since they don’t adhere to his Tea Party vision.”

    -Collins is definitely not a favorite, but I have NEVER wished for her to lose a race.

    Robbie, please produce ONE COMMENT where I mentioned removing this woman.

  899. NYCmike says:

    Anything Robbie?

    Yeah, didn’t think so.

    – The Hispanic population has grown in California, as it has elsewhere, because of immigration and because they are reproducing at a rate higher than whites.

    And when you throw in the fact Pete Wilson hung the rhetorical “not welcomed” sign, it produced a demographic bomb that Democrats were able to use to their advantage thanks to the hardline stance Republicans have to take to win primaries.

    – Sure you would. If loony Paul LePage challenged her in 2020, you be all in on him even though he would struggle to win the general.

  903. Phil says:

    We have an unusual situation in America that is unique to the world. If you are born in the US to a mother and father who is here illegally you automatically become a citizen with full voting rights. The term I think is anchor babies. The more illegals each year the more anchor babies down the road. That’s been happening since Reagan’s amnesty in 86 and the number turning 18 every year almost doubles.

    I won’t even go into the number of illegals who illegally vote. Very little of that occurs in my state. Nothing significant anyway. We don’t give out driver’s licenses and our voter ID laws are the strongest in he country. Blue states, not so much and California, well, they don’t even try to be subtle. At the beginning of this month the new California voting law went into effect and if you have a driver’s license there is almost nothing to prevent you from registering to vote.

  904. NYCmike says:

    “– Sure you would. If loony Paul LePage challenged her in 2020, you be all in on him even though he would struggle to win the general.”

    -If Lepage wants to primary her, that is his prerogative. That does not mean I would want him to win.

    Are you, once again, against primaries?

  905. NYCmike says:

    “We have an unusual situation in America that is unique to the world.

    -I believe The RAISE ACT addresses this……..Robbie is against the RAISE ACT.

  906. NYCmike says:

    “If loony Paul LePage”

    -Robbie, ONCE AGAIN, speaking badly about a Republican who actually governs as a Republican.

  907. Phil says:

    Anyway I’m debated out.

    Robbie, you’ll get your Trump impeachment vote by no later than February. You’ve won. Enjoy it. Doubt he is removed but if he is don’t expect Pence to be anything but savaged by the MSM, late night Colberts and Fallons, and left in general. It’s not so much as Trump but any Republican. Remember how they treated W? It won’t change. The left has an agenda and any Republican who gets in their way by occupying the WH will be viciously attacked. I just hope that when those inevitable attacks occur you lay off the links to the MSM.

  908. NYCmike says:

    “A member of the Republican Party, LePage’s political career began when he served two terms as a city councilor in Waterville, Maine, before being elected Mayor of Waterville in 2003, serving until 2011. During his eight-year tenure as mayor, LePage reorganized city hall, lowered taxes, and increased the city’s rainy day fund balance from $1 million to $10 million.”

    -LOONY.

  909. NYCmike says:

    “LePage supports a school voucher system and structuring pay to reward teachers for performance. He has stated that curriculum should be determined by local school boards.”

    LOONY

  910. NYCmike says:

    “LePage has criticized wind power and in particular the large-scale expansion of installed capacity mandated by Maine’s 2008 Wind Energy Act and wind energy’s large role in the state’s Renewable Portfolio Standard. LePage argues that the policies are a major cause of the relatively high cost per kW of electricity in Maine—34% above the national average”

    -LOONY

  911. NYCmike says:

    Pence will get savaged by the media, maybe even worse than Trump has.

    Roseanne would suddenly become a media darling as well because she has already warned that if Trump leaves, Pence is next, and he is a monster.

  912. NYCmike says:

    “LePage has stated that the size of state government is likely too large and that he would probably seek to reduce the number of state employees.”

    LOONY

  913. NYCmike says:

    “LePage advocates eliminating Maine’s income tax, believing it to be an impediment to economic growth for the state.”

    -LOONY

    Without a sea change in the current climate the house is gone. The more pressure put on trump and it’s growing the smaller the chance he can control himself. I believe that the mueller investigation tactics are as much about unhinging trump as anything else. The hope is to limit the damage to the people who at risk in the doj and fbi by keeping all the focus on trump. My guess is they find some unrelated to Russia foot faults I suspect any hands on ceo who does international law has broken some unenforced laws.

  929. Tgca says:

    Just for the record, I’m not suggesting Robbie is racist. I just think is vile hatred of Trump impacts his judgment, and leads him to say things I strongly disagree with. I would feel the same about George Clooney or other radicsl lefties that I see no good in because I detest them so much. I’m sure there is some good in the man but damn if I can see it.

    My point is that many Latin immigrants come to the US fir the benefits and a better life so I can’t fault them for trying. But that does not mean we rollover and let many immigrants abuse the system. It generally takes a generation or two before immigrants become less reliant on gov programs to move to upper middle class. That is when you generally see a change in how folks vote.

    I personally think we need legal immigration to fill jobs that others leave as they grow to the next level. But I’m opposed to giving away benefits to anyone that shows up.

    Imagine if I showed up st your house and expected you to take care of me without you having any say so in the matter. Simplistic but in reality, what happens in many areas of the country.

Donald Trump’s response to this was to punch the media in the face, repeatedly. The voters let us know which response they prefer.”

  942. Tgca says:

    I think the Latino vote for the GOP generally maxes out at 30 to 35% in the current environment. That has been consistent since 1980 with Reagan. GWB being an anomaly by getting 40% in 2004 which I believe was more due to the favorable coverage he got among some Latino organizations and the war conflict we were in. I doubt he could repeat that in today’s environment.

    The Dems strongly need the immigrant vote because they have bled white voters and male voters. That is why I believe the Dems have abandoned AA voters because they get more bang with their buck from the Latino population. Dems think AA voters are a given and they owe them nothing. They know they can’t win if they split the Latino voters with the GOP so to them, it do or die and screw all other traditional supporters do they cater to the poor Latin immigrants.

    I’ve always believed that the Dem party are perfectly content with mass poverty, especially minorities because it’s how they sustain their power.

    I had high hopes for Ryan too but like Rubio, he capitulates to the MSM and libs and not willing to fight for what’s right. Trump has lost little support in his base because he is a fighter and takes the fight to his adversaries. I think the GOP has to focus on 2 main things to stay in power.

    1. Remind folks that it will be impeachment 24/7 with Dem control and nothing else gets done, and

    2. Remind folks of all the progress under him and whether they wish to be back where they were before he took office. Ask them if they are better off today or 4 years ago.

    This should be 24/7 talking points to sink in with folks. Focus on the Indy’s because the Dems will not come around. If they get Indy’s by 5 points, the GOP wins.

    76ers steamrolling Bucks. Cool.

    Make Bitterlaw an A-Hole ag……..scratch that…….

  979. Bitterlaw says:

    Don’t scratch an A-hole. You won’t like what is below the surface.

  980. Chicon says:

    Could the Phils get over .500? Must be the manager… Were they ever over. 500 last year?

  981. Bitterlaw says:

    I don’t believe in redemption. Pulling a starter after 68 pitches after 5 with a lead and knowing the bullpen sucks is unforgivable. Putting in a reliever who threw no warm up pitches is unforgivable.

    “Yes, April, it actually is a ridiculous question, and one that no one ever asked of Barack Obama’s spokesmen, despite his many low moments. ”

    My guess FBI IG report never comes out until they take down President Trump. Already way late next excuse can’t release now because of the information sent Utah for investigation.

  986. Chicon says:

    Obama in 2010 had a JA of 45 – Robbie’s original target to lose fewer than 23 seats. Obama lost 63 seats.

    It’ll all be Trump’s fault, though….

  987. Cash Cow TM says:

    Maybe Dave the Wizard is in the hospital in a coma…

    Say, what is the Roman symbol for 10,000?

  988. Chicon says:

    The Dems probably have a better than even chance of getting the House. Given the historical evidence, it will be a large win for the Republicans and Trump if they keep the House.

    If they do take the House, what metric will Flyboy use to blame it on Trump? How will we know what % of blame goes to Trump? How much to the Congress?

    It’ll be opinion, despite Robbie presenting it as fact.

    Remember, though, it’s a “fake poll.” They just make numbers up. They don’t actually poll anybody.

    Wobbles explained that yesterday.

  990. Cash Cow TM says:

    Ryan may have quit, and is not running again…
    but we should take heart that Michael refuses to quit the dating scene…just can;t decide which gender to date…

    MOO!

  991. gameboy says:

    I’m starting to think this Mueller nonsense is going to help the GOP keep the house come fall. Most people who have common sense will conclude the Stalinist tactics being used by the Mueller team are a bit much. Pretty much what happened in the 98 midterms with the Ken Starr thing.

  992. mnw says:

    According to a Josh Kraushaar teaser, the approval ratings for Heitkamp & Manchin have taken “a major hit” in the TBA Morning Consult poll to be released today.
