    New Polls

    Mason Dixon – Missouri

    McCaskill (D) 45%
    Hawley (R) 44%

    Trump Approval
    Approve 47%

    Trump’s Approval is up from the Gravis Poll 46/50, and McCaskill is down from her 2-point lead.

    I figure I mind as well claim the spot now since Dave will go AWOL for sometime before a new thread emerges.

    That’s not where an incumbent like Sky Queen wants to be.

    Hawley needs to raise more money, btw.

    The PPP FL is a DEM internal, essentially.

    #4 Michael, it’s about time you pulled your weight on polls. You been slacking a lot lately.

    What’s interesting about Missouri is now that Trump is developing a better job approval he could start getting involved in the race.

    I find it encouraging in many respects.

    Does he still show up at the clubhouse, Bitterlaw?

  14. NYCmike says:

    -“Mr. Trump was meeting with lawmakers from states that rely on agriculture when he made the comments about the TPP. Sen. Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican who was in the meeting, said he believed Mr. Trump was serious about his interest in re-entering the trade pact.

    “That’s really good news for America,” Mr. Sasse said.”

    Sasse, #NeverTrump hero to Robbie and “CG”, possibly working with Trump?!?

    OH MY!

  15. Michael says:

    GOP Primary
    Mike DeWine 42%
    Mary Taylor 32%

    An internal poll for Taylor, but the race is close enough that I feel that this election will be a good indicator of registration leaning for voters, since this is seen after every primary.

    ABC says, Comey’s book says, Comey knows of CLASSIFIED information about AG Lynch that;

  27. Robbie says:

    Poor fake tough guy Michael Cohen. Apparently, the moron taped his calls with people in Trump world (possibly Trump) and the digital recordings may have been seized in the FBI raid on Monday.

    I have a bit of advice for Michael Cohen. If he drops the soap in the prison shower, don’t bend over to pick it up.

  28. Chicon says:

    Because you’ll be right behind him…..

  29. Robbie says:

    Remember when all of the Trump University graduates at HHR said the Stormy Daniels story would be a nothing burger? Whoops. It looks like the HHR collective was wrong again.

    Instead of the story being a nothing burger, now the FBI is investigating Trump’s fake tough guy over the hush money he paid to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal for wire fraud, bank fraud, and campaign finance violations.

    And by the way Trump University graduates, the only way a raid like the one the FBI conducted on Cohen happens is if a judge concludes there was probable cause. In other words, the judge was convinced a crime was taking place at the locations searched.

    I do feel your pain, though, chiclown. You put your faith in Trump and now his presidency is blowing up in tabloid fashion right in front of your face.

    Robbie you have probably do not have much experiences with judges but if you think the American justice system is blind you are very naive. Just look at the 9th circuit.

  33. Robbie says:

    Remember, Trumpers. It’s only going to get worse. There is no “better” with Trump. If you think it’s bad now (and it is), a month from now this period will feel like the good old days.

    There are seven months to go until the November elections. That’s more than enough time for Republicans to throw Trump overboard and hope six or seven months of Pence would be enough time to calm the waters and give Republicans a chance to salvage the elections.

    Alas, that won’t happen. The Trump University graduates will spend the next seven months claiming all the bad really doesn’t matter that Rasmussen polls say everything is fine.

    Why? You’d just be on here day in day out babbling about Pence.

    – You’ve been listening to the Trump University valedictorian Jason fraud too much.

    In 2011 when the 2012 presidential process was kicking off, Mike Pence was one of my early choices along with Mitch Daniels and Jeb Bush.

    I think Pence would be a fine president who would quite effective in governing and relatively popular with the 53% or so of the voters who would have voted for any Republican president other than Trump in 2016.

    Does he have his flaws? Sure. Name one who doesn’t. Is he a disgraceful, morally repugnant, dirtball like Trump who is emotionally unstable? Nope.

    And compared to the 15 months of chaos and insanity through which Trump has put the country, Pence would look like a Washington or Lincoln. Remember, Ford had very high approval ratings after Nixon resigned. It was the pardon that hurt Ford’s standing.

  48. Robbie says:

    One last thought before I sign off for the night.

    The James Comey book tour is a big mistake. It was absolutely wrong the way Trump fired him, but Comey is the wrong person to make the case against Trump. And according to excerpts of the book, it appears Comey took some rather personal shots at Trump (hand size being one). That will only diminish whatever message Comey hoped to deliver.

    “CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia is split on U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., according to a poll published Thursday.

    In Morning Consult’s latest Senator Approval Rankings, Manchin has a 43 percent approval rating and 44 percent disapproval rating with a 2 percent margin of error.

    This is the first time Manchin’s numbers have been underwater since President Donald Trump took office. Manchin had a 57 percent approval rating and 33 percent disapproval rating in Morning Consult’s April 2017 rankings, the first of the Trump presidency. The senior senator had a 52 percent approval rating among West Virginia voters earlier this year in January, compared to 36 percent disapproval.

    The 17 point slide since the January is the largest decline of any senator….”

  78. Chicon says:

    Some good Robbie reading last night.

    Anyway, more data on Robbie’s theory that off year congressional election performance by the party holding the White House is most accurately predicted by the President’s JA number.

    In 2006, W had a 37 JA and lost 30 seats. In 2010

  79. Chicon says:

    In 2010, Obama had a 45 JA and lost 63 seats.

  80. Chicon says:

    Yep, totes correlates, Flyboy.

  81. Chicon says:

    Perhaps Obama lost so many seats because his personal popularity is much higher than the popularity of his policies, and he was not on the ballot.

    Will the opposite be true for Trump? He’s personally unpopular, but his programs are better received. Time will tell. Robbie is positive, though…..

  82. Messy57 says:

    The DNC under Debbie Shultz was a disaster. She only wanted Hillary for president and the rest of the party be damned. Also, Republican lies about Obamacare were believed, and in ’14, it was all about Obama bringing ebola into the country.

  83. Chicon says:

    Messy is as detached from reality as Robbie.

    In 14 it was all about Obama bringing ebola into this country?

    Detached from reality might be an understatement.

    President Trump:

    James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR. Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired. He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH. He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI. His handling of the Crooked Hillary Clinton case, and the events surrounding it, will go down as one of the worst “botch jobs” of history. It was my great honor to fire James Comey!

    It appears to be a three-man race right now.

    IMO, Blankenship and Rep. Jenkins both have strength in the southern 1/3 of WV (CD#3) and could split votes there enough that AG Morrissey could squeak through.

    Very fluid race….

  94. Cash Cow TM says:

    Morrissey’s base is the Eastern Panhandle (hi lives in Harpers Ferry a the estreme eastern tip of WV), but the EP had a horrid history of having a very poor primary turnout.

  95. DW says:

    the 10-1 New York Mets have an embarrassment of riches for starting pitchers. If they all could stay off the DL, which would be no small feat, then it could be quite a memorable year.

    Jacob deGrom: Their most consistent and healthy ace the last several years.

    Noah Syndergaard: Mets’ co-ace with deGrom. Capable of putting up huge strikeout numbers and 100+ mph heat. He is weak when runners get on base as they can steal pretty easily.

    Matt Harvey: Has struggled last couple of years but looks like he is getting back on his game.

    Steven Matz: Lefty has a bad outing for every two or three good outings, but when he is on, he is very effective.

    Zach Wheeler: Finally returned from Tommy John surgery. Struggled in spring training, but just had his first start and was very effective.

    Robert Gsellman: Would be a starter on any other team, but comes out of the pen and shuts down teams in middle inning relief.

    Seth Lugo: Same role as Gsellman but even more effective. Limited to only 6 innings of relief thus far, still no earned runs. He would easily start on any other team.

    Jason Vargas: Is coming back from the DL and figures to replace Wheeler in the starting rotation.

    So in summary, they have 8 legitimate starters, so three will be available for middle relief. The Mets will also have the luxury of pulling a starter early, when he has a bad day as any of the three in the bull pen can come in and give four or five innings work with no problem.

    As to the role of closer, it appears Familia is back on his game after being on the DL last year.

    So there is a reason the Mets lead MLB in runs allowed at only 31 after 11 games.

    No idea if it will last.

    Comey is a sanctimonious, self important dick. Trump needs to shut up and let the guy hang himself….but as usual Trump can’t help himself. If he wants to hit back let his spokesmen do the talking. By in large I like Trump’s policies minus tariffs, but he has no temperament (which America knew when they elected him). Letting yourself get into a food fight with the likes of Comey serves no purpose and is totally unnecessary. Trump is the president. Getting down on Comey’s level is silly and counter productive.

    I am critical of Trump for the way he is responding to Comey. That said, this book and tour is going to be a disaster for James Comey……the more the public sees of this guy the more they are going to dislike him. Playing the sanctimonious entity of virtue isn’t generally effective. People don’t like it. Comes off as arrogant and self important. Furthermore, the MSM is going to lose further credibility by pushing Comey as a face virtue. People aren’t going to like him and it will be one more reason to discount media messenger. Finally, I think it is absolutely stupid for him to go on record with things prior to the Inspector General’s report. Really dumb.

  106. Chicon says:

    114 – hi, Phil. I tend to agree about Trump’s yammering about Comey. I do think though, that a certain amount is necessary to force the swine media to cover his point.

  107. Phil says:

    Agree with you that there should be a certain amount of Pushback from Trump. We all remember how it worked out for W when he just laid there while the left walked all over him. He just needs to tone it down and lose the “slimeball” references if he is determined to tweet. People will come to that conclusion on their own watching Comey operate. The more they see the guy the more they will dislike him.

    Comey informed Trump on Jan. 6, 2017, about the dossier’s most salacious unproven charges & presented the allegation to Trump as an intelligence report, keeping him in the dark about it being a piece of opposition research funded by Hillary & DNC.

    James Comey kept Donald Trump in the dark on dossier’s Democrat

    Would you say failing to tell the President-elect of the United States that a foreign dossier containing salacious allegations about him was financed by his domestic political opponents is grossly negligent, or just extremely careless?
    Charlie Spiering
    STEPHANOPOULOS: Did you tell him that the Steele dossier had been financed by his political opponents?

    COMEY: No. I didn’t…

    STEPHANOPOULOS: But did he have a right to know that?

    COMEY: That it had been financed by his political opponents? I don’t know the answer to that.

  116. Tgca says:

    Comey is stupid for admitting he knew that the dossier was funded by Hillary and company. Then he goes on to advise Trump not to investigate the dossier, as a Trump asked, because an investigation would not prove it untrue and put more focus on it. So Trump is willing to go the fight to refute it, and Comey advises against this which implies Trump has a consistent point about this being false and therefore, as later acknowledge, shows Hillary’s folks were working with foreign entities during the election to effect the election. We know of no such case with Trump but we know of it with Hilary.

  117. Chicon says:

    If Comey knew the dossier was funded by hrc, did he mention that in the FISA application? Does he think he should have?

  118. Tgca says:

    Rodenstein slams Comey by saying he stands by Comeys firing and people don’t know what they know about Comey. I guess he’s just waiting for the IG report to come out and tell it all.

    Rodenstein is not a Trump sycophant especially since Trump has been considering firing him too. The fact that Roddy is expecting to be fired at some point but still taking sides on the Comey issue looks bad for Comey.

  119. Tina says:

    Exactly,math at is the problem no coup plotter informed the fisha judge.

    Scooter Libby pardoned.

    Another mute 43 error corrected.

  122. Tina says:

    In 2015, one of the key witnesses against Mr. Libby recanted her testimony, stating publicly that she believes the prosecutor withheld relevant information from her during interviews that would have altered significantly what she said. The next year, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals unanimously reinstated Mr. Libby to the bar, reauthorizing him to practice law. The Court agreed with the District of Columbia Disciplinary Counsel, who stated that Mr. Libby had presented credible evidence in support of his innocence, including evidence that a key prosecution witness had changed her recollection of the events in question.

  123. Tina says:

    1. Libby was the victim of a rogue prosecutor, just as the left hopes Trump will be.
    2. The person who assigned the prosecutor on the Libby case was James Comey
    3. Message sent to Flynn and others that we’ll pardon victims of rogue prosecutors

    Hillary lied about emails and their security classification. Has she been charged?

    Comey claims Lynch tried tried to obstruct his investigation. Has she been charged?

    Comey appears to have lied to Congress if you believe McCabe, and he appears to have also not reported the obstruction pressure on him by Lynch in the investigation which is a federal violation for not reporting it. Has he been charged?

I think a better characterization is that these lying goons are deeply afraid poop is coming out on them and trying to cover it up.

    Ok. Read a good deal of the laborious repetitive IG report on McCabe. The conclusion is he got busted lying 4 times, 3 times under oath, and then tried to manipulate others during the investigation with his comments and re-characterize his previous statements at a later date that were totally a reversal.

    Sorry! Does anyone believe someone who said we never had a call and discussed XYZ to only state now I remember that conversation, and I also remember it in great detail so let e tell you all about it, especially after conflicting info arises.

    So unless you’re under the influence of got dementia that is extremely fishy.

    Oh wait, I totally forgot your honor. Disregard what I said the other day. I do know that woman and we did have sexual relations. Let me tell you all about it and how I mis-remembered it.

  177. Tgca says:

    This is interesting why Comey would Twitter how honorable McCabe is publicly when he was fired but previously told Investigators during the investigation McCabe’s version of events were false and that what McCabe was accused of doing is not policy and he should no better.

    Bottom line. Comey is partly the reason OIG recommended McCabes firing because they claim he lied to Comey and that Comey refuted McCabes version of events.

    But Comey then says what a great guy McCabe is on Twitter.

  178. Tgca says:

    I guess Comey was right when he twittered that the truth would come out and folks can see. It appears Comey lies about praising McCabe on Twitter and threw him under the bus to the investigators behind closed doors.

    Now we see the truth on McCabe. No thanks to Comey.

    If anyone is interested you can go over to Powerline and read a rather interesting short article entitled “Are Democrats Creating Sympathy For Donald Trump? by John Hinderaker.

    Here’s the money quote:

    *No one has ever seen anything like it: The ridiculous smears, the nightly barrage of “comedy”, over the top attacks by former government officials like Brennan and Comey, endless investigations into nothing in particular, calls for impeachment (grounds? Who need grounds?), absurd accusations of “treason” and so on.

    He believes it has been so over the top day in day out that it has turned off more and more people. The crazier and more shrill the left gets the less anyone is apt to listen to what they have to say. The Trump haters can go on and on (see Robbie) but it’s at the very least reached the point of diminishing returns with those that are not the hardcore Trump haters.

    The author then provides some polling charts backing this up.

    The question? Is the rest of the country really yearning for a Democratic majority the promises to ratchet it up to even more insane levels? The gals on the View are. Hollywood is. Jimmie Fallon is, Robbie is…but what of the swing voters that make the difference in elections. If you are a leftist and you just continue to scream louder and throw out more and wilder accusations you are hurting your cause, not helping it.

    Am afraid Putin is looking a bit like a paper tiger now

    “Alexander Zasypkin, in comments broadcast on Tuesday evening, said he was referring to a statement by Russian president Vladimir Putin and the Russian chief-of-staff.

    “If there is a strike by the Americans then… the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired,” he told Hezbollah’s al-Manar”

    When Obama tangled with Putin in Syria many years ago, it was Obama who looked like a paper tiger. In the present crisis, he would again have cowered.

    Whatever Trump’s faults, in situations like Syria its nice to have a president who is not afraid to stand up to Putin.

  198. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    204. “If anyone is interested you can go over to Powerline and read a rather interesting short article entitled “Are Democrats Creating Sympathy For Donald Trump? by John Hinderaker.”

    I would agree. In particular the idea of raiding the office of someone’s attorney leaves a bad taste in people’s mouths. They may have found an indirect justification to try and side step the attorney-client privilege, but it still creates a very bad precedent.

Kirkpatrick went down in flames in 2016. Synema is it. If, as I suspect, McSally beats Synema by a decent margin in November, then the AZDP has no viable Senate candidate on the horizon.

    Trump could have ordered the strike cause Assad is a vicious murdering thug AND to move attention away from Mueller and Comey. Both can be true.

  218. Phil says:

    At least he chose real targets and not an aspirin factory.

  219. Bitterlaw says:

    I never met a US missile strike that I did not like. Good for a Trump. May and the French guy.

  220. Tina says:

    She thinks trumps a threat because how he treats women.

    However, she says bj, one who has raped or sexually asaukted women, to be great.

    She is a fake republican, much like the socialist

  221. Tina says:

    I am ok with these sirgical strikes, but no occupying force. We made mistakes occupying those countries.

    The mccainsm goober, hillary foreign policy is a disaster

  222. Tina says:

    Speaking of comedy, what a disastrous friday for him, given the mccabe news, his statements that he overlooked the emails because of politics, and the omission that the clintune fraud foundation is under investigation.

  223. Tina says:

    Trump needs to be cautious on the deep state intelligence services. They ruined mute 43 for being so wrong on aq and iraq.

  224. Phil says:

    Yeah, Comey didn’t have the best roll out did he.

  225. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina – Considering that you are not a Republican, why do you get to decide who are the “real” Republicans.

    As a registered Republican for 32 years and a 100% GOP voting record, I don’t go RINO hunting like you do.

  226. mnw says:

    My impression, formed over many months, is that the Drudge Report has joined the Resistance now.

  227. Phil says:

    mnw, that is my impression as well. No doubt about it. He’s done a 180. Why, I have no idea, but all you have to look at is his daily headlines and the stories he now links to. Huge change.

  228. Phil says:

    “I want you to know that nothing— nothing— has happened in the last year to change my view.”

    “I know,” Obama said. “I know.”

    Not his goal to give the facts on the dossier to the president.

    In California, the Republican Party is riddled with crony capitalism, and a lot of its candidates are real dirt-bags. I am registered as non-party. The primaries now are non-party “jungle” primaries. The top two candidates, regardless of any party affiliation, go into the run-off. I often vote for candidates who are registered as Democrats — particularly for local offices. Depends on the person, and what office they are seeking.

  247. Bitterlaw says:

    SDC – I don’t know what I would do in California elections. There can never be a lesser of two evils when both candidates are Dems.

  248. Bitterlaw says:

    I am consistent. In local races in my town, I have voted for Republicans I can’t stand over Democrat acts who are my friends.

  251. dblaikie says:

    The rage is building in the hearts of millions of Americans. There will be many on this site who think I am nuts. But I am saying it and going on record early — the blue wave has already crested and the red wave is building.

  252. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    264. “I am consistent. In local races in my town, I have voted for Republicans I can’t stand over Democrat acts who are my friends.”

    Here is an example of how the ruling Republican establishment in San Diego operates. Its pretty sordid.

    Attempts by “reformers” in both parties to end the abuse failed several years ago. Now government employees and crony capitalists feeding off the government largess control both parties. Whether they have an “R” or “D” by their name makes no difference.

  253. Tina says:

    The conen to prague rumour was debunked a long time ago. That paper republished something.

    Of concern is the fact that the prosecutors involved in the highly questiinabke and illegal raid have gone through the emails already.

  258. Wes says:

    Exactly, Mikey. It tells you I have no interest in supporting incompetent warmongers and misogynist bastards.

  259. Bitterlaw says:

    I could not disagree more, Wes. But if you prefer Democrats, I can’t stop you. President Gore could have destroyed the economy with environmental EOs. Kerry would be as ad or worse than Obama on foreign policy.

    I know you will say that there would never have been President Obama without GWB. Pure speculation since Obama would have still wanted to be President after Gore or Kerry finished their terms.If Gore or Kerry had been defeated in 2004 or 2008 or 2012, we might still have gotten Obama.

  260. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes vote for GWB twice.

    Unbelievably, James Comey states that Polls, where Crooked Hillary was leading, were a factor in the handling (stupidly) of the Clinton Email probe. In other words, he was making decisions based on the fact that he thought she was going to win, and he wanted a job. Slimeball!

    The Syrian raid was so perfectly carried out, with such precision, that the only way the Fake News Media could demean was by my use of the term “Mission Accomplished.” I knew they would seize on this but felt it is such a great Military term, it should be brought back. Use often!

    Comey throws AG Lynch “under the bus!” Why can’t we all find out what happened on the tarmac in the back of the plane with Wild Bill and Lynch? Was she promised a Supreme Court seat, or AG, in order to lay off Hillary. No golf and grandkids talk (give us all a break)!
    Donald J. Trump
    Donald J. Trump
    The big questions in Comey’s badly reviewed book aren’t answered like, how come he gave up Classified Information (jail), why did he lie to Congress (jail), why did the DNC refuse to give Server to the FBI (why didn’t they TAKE it), why the phony memos, McCabe’s $700,000 & more?

  270. Tina says:



    Phony memos.

    Lol, he is really asking some shart questiins that stephowhaterver, cnn , mslsd will not ask.

  271. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes is not a Democrat. He is so consumed by Bush Derangement Syndrome (despite having voted for GWB twice) that he has convinced himself that ultra-leftists like Gore and Kerry were better for the country.

  272. Tgca says:

    IMHO, GWB was the 2nd greatest GOP POTUS in the last 20 years.

  273. Bitterlaw says:

    I saw what you did there, Tgca.

  277. Messy57 says:

    288. Gore and Kerry aren’t ultra-leftists, that is unless you think Kevin McCarthy and Paul Ryan are liberals.

  278. Messy57 says:

    275. Had Gore been elected in ’00 (he WAS, but that’s neither here nor there), there would have been no Obama.

    The reason is that Obama was given the Keynote spot in the ’04 convention and nobody had heard of him prior to that outside of his state Senate district.

    There is no way he would have gotten the spot.

  279. Tgca says:

    Gore has gone extremely left and Kerry is borderline radical leftist. No sense in denying that. That’s like saying Ted Kennedy was a moderate. Oh wait! Someone did argue that awhile back.

  280. Tgca says:

    I used to live in San Francisco where 85% voted for Gore and Kerry. It reminds me how folks from there and Berkeley did not consider themselves radical left. Ha. Ha. Can we say denial please.

    My favorite is when the liberals thought the senate should kick out Strom Thurmond (but not Robert Byrd) for his past affiliation with those that had racist views. However, these same folks made an argument for why it was OK for child molestors advocates from NAMBLA to march in city parades because they represented a portion of the community even if all did not agree with them.

    But no, San Francisco and Berkeley are not radical leftists like Gore. Ha. Ha.

    .@Comey didn’t think Trump needed to know that the dossier, which was the basis of the investigation into his campaign, was opposition research paid for by Hillary.

    Omitting that incredibly material fact when briefing @POTUS alone necessitated his firing.

  285. mnw says:

    Here’s a view that won’t be popular.

    After 911, I thought it was appropriate & militarily sound to invade Iraq. The regime there said it had no WMD— even though it had used same previously? Fine. Prove it or war. After 911, we couldn’t just accept Saddam’s word on such an existential issue.

    I also thought GWB was justified in saying ‘mission accomplished.’ He was just a little early. We HAD Iraq all going in the right direction until Zero pulled the residual U.S. forces there out. Then everything went to hell.

    I voted for GWB twice & have no regrets. He was abysmal on immigration, but … Gore & Kerry. No regrets at all.

  286. Tgca says:


    I repeat. Though I think GWB messed up a number of things, he clearly is undoubtedly with no dispute, the 2nd greatest GOP POTUS in the last 20 years.

    I’m wondering what Jason had for breakfast this fine Sunday morning.

    My dogs delighted in a quinoa herb and coconut oil mix with scrambled organic brown eggs, sliced organic Pacific rose apples, slides organic strawberries, organic cranberries, topped with homemade organic peanut sauce sprinkled with organic chia seeds, organic ground almond, organic hemp hearts and cinnamon..and a vitamin. Yummy!

    …sadly I ran out of bananas and pineapples but I’m not sure they noticed they were missing. Peanut sauce can mask anything for a pooch.

  288. Tgca says:

    I should state that was organic quinoa..

  289. Tgca says:

    …and fresh minced organic herb blend, not McCormicks jarred herbs.

    …and clearly the coconut oil was organic, unrefined virgin and expeller pressed.

  290. Tina says:

    It was, after all, Comey who went to the president during the transition seeking a one-on-one meeting to tell him about the inflammatory dossier, but who critically omitted telling the president that the dossier was a product of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. These facts, he knew, if revealed at that moment in January, would have ended further inquiry. This was no effort to inform the president and douse the fires of unverified and salacious information, but one to inflame the president and spread the stories everywhere.

    This is a main reason why cimedy is in troubke.

  291. Bitterlaw says:

    Here’s a view that won’t be popular.

    It’s popular with me.

  292. Tina says:

    According to failed speaker ryano, comedy is a man of integrity.

    What a losah.

  293. Phil says:


    Holy cow, Tina. Mark Penn wrote that. He just destroys the Mueller investigation. Shreds it….and it’s from Mark Penn!

    Mnw – popular with me, too.

  295. Tina says:

    Yes, phil great article by penn,

    Comedys job was t inform trump fulky about the dossier.

    He failed.

    Trump gave hm months to come clean and henfailed to do so,

    Comedy is a political hack and unethical.

  296. Tgca says:

    Boom Tina! I read that same article by Penn. I’m not sure I could have laid it out as well it as well as Penn but all I’ll say is:


    Penn penned a perfectly perceptive, precise piece probing powerful policing personnel prevalantly and purposely prostituting power by pursuing and pillorying people, protecting pals and political proponents, propagating pernicious plots, and perpetrating perjury. It’s particularly perplexing prevaricators parried prosecution presently.

  297. Tgca says:

    Though I admire Babs Bush for her fierce dedication to her husband and family, she is not known for being the sharpest knife in the drawer and has said some STOOPID things over the years that make folks question whether she new what she was taking about. We can say that about some folks here too but I a, not going to mention Author, MD, Robbie, etc. I just won’t elaborate so dont asks,ease.

    But as with most, and I mean MOST folks who fall ill, I wish her well and great comfort as she deals with this challenging time.

  298. Tgca says:

    I do not understand why the gay activist attorney, David Buckel, burned himself to death. I can see if you’re in China calling worldwide attention to an abusive regime but here in the US where it will get little to no publicity to change the course of events, it seems extreme. He did this to protest global pollution.

    Now, I am not against suicide. In fact, I recommend it for many, especially some exes but I digress. Anyway, the horrifying painful death of burning alive in this instance makes me wonder if he was mentally stable.

    I’m not sure if he had close family and friends but it’s a horrific way to leave a life where many felt he made a big difference for them.

    Very sad. I wish his loved ones the best at this time.

  299. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes must be devastated. First, his preferred candidate Gore lost to GWB (although he voted for GWB). Now, an environmental activist who was on Gote’s side kills himself.

  300. Bitterlaw says:


  301. Tgca says:

    As someone who suffers from a genetic disease that causes chronic pain, and often has difficulty moving and sleeping for more than a couple hours straight, I can understand thoughts of suicide, and knowing that some day it may become a reality, especially if faced with being in a wheelchair. But I would never burn myself alive. God how horridly excruciating that would be. Besides, that would totally mess up my hair and blemish my near flawless skin. No, for me, I rent a room at a hotel I don’t like, down a ton of pills, alcohol, place a wet rag over my face, and fall into a deep sleep.

  302. Bitterlaw says:

    Of course you can’t sleep straight. You’re gay!

  303. Bitterlaw says:

    I am sorry that you have an illness. I hope that somehow a cure or treatments that alleviate it are developed.

  304. Tgca says:

    Ha! That’s like when I’m in a car and someone is giving me directions and says drive straight down there. I correct them and say “you mean gayly forward.”

  305. Tgca says:

    It’s more of a degenerative disease than an illness with no magic pills or technology to reverse or cease it expected any time soon. I’ve had 3 surgeries and looking at another 3 in the next year. If that occurs, that’s 6 surgeries in 5 years just to alleviate pain and reduce the risk of paralysis. The paralysis risk is gone for now but will most likely return within 15 years. I don’t care about 15 years from now. I care about now and the next 5 years. I have my ups and downs daily but I usually keep busy with work so it distracts me from the frustration.

  306. Bitterlaw says:

    Stay fabulous, Tgca.

  307. mnw says:


    I’m distressed to hear it. I admire your ability to stay lighthearted and humorous despite that burden.

    Thank you all for the well wishes but I’m just dealing with the cards dealt me in life. Other than severe allergies, I’m as fit as a fiddle and meet or exceed every test range for all organs. My heart can go another 50 years strong I’m told with my low blood pressure (usually 105-110 over 60 to 70) and low cholesterol.

    It’s an extremely frustrating experience when you have spinal disease and don’t know from one day to the next how it’s going to impact your nerves and bones. Many people can’t comprehend because they only see the outside of you and you look fit and healthy.

    I keep on hoping I get one of those mechanical exoskeletons that’ll give me super strength and powers one day to also satisfy my fantasy of leaping bounds without effort like I do in my dreams. I’ve not been able to run for years more than a few feet without having pain and weakness kick in so being able to move like that again is a dream.

    But hey, it’s not all bad I’m told because God blessed me with incredible good looks, a full rich head of hair, nice straight white teeth, and flawless unblemished and unwrinkled skin. I remind them not to forget the utterly charming personality and humility either.

  315. Chicon says:

    Tgca, in addition to your serious posts, I appreciate the irreverence and humor you bring to this place.

  316. Tina says:

    THi h comedy interview is a disaster.

    Comedy is a weak and incompetent man.

  317. Tgca says:

    I read the entire transcript. He spends time justifying why he either acted or didn’t act. He seems needy for hugs from Loretta Lynch and words of support from Obama. He questions whether other’s intent or integrity, and refuses to admit any real fault of his own. He gives personal digs and petty remarks.

    George panders to Comeys high opinion of himself and doesn’t challenge him on any inconsistencies and does not even discuss McCabes firing and the events over the recent weeks where McCabe contradicts Comey. No tough questions here.

    This was clearly a fluff piece where George assumes all Comey states in the book is accurate.

    Bottom line, Trump supporters see a conniving, angry, bitter employee fired for cause. Trump haters see him being of the utmost integrity and the good s pcout trying to protect the FBI from evil Trump.

    Nothing here to see folks. Just publicity to sell his book.

  318. Tgca says:

    Another issue I have with Comey is his consistent lie that there is no precedent for prosecuting someone committing a crime due to carelessness when their is no intent to commit the crime itself. Tell that to the navy sailor who acted stupidly in taking pictures on his vessel and contrast that to a well-seasoned, procedures complianced-trained, educated lawyer, and presidential cabinet member. She was reckless but not prosecutable but this young immature sailor needed to be made an example of?

    So much for Comey’s 50 years of precedent of no prosecuted cases for carelessness or reckless behavior.

    It also flies in the face of Comey’s argument that he would treat a famous, well-connected person the same as a nobody.

    Again, lying and conniving.

  319. MichiganGuy says:

    Michigan Democratic Party endorses Dana Nessel for Attorney General. Good go for the far left wing candidate in a Moderate to conservative state. The UAW and AFL-CIO supported her opponent.
    Here’s one of her campaign slogans. “Who can you trust most NOT to show you their penis in a professional setting? Is it the candidate who doesn’t have a penis?” #MeToo I’m going to say right now no matter who the Republicans nominate we got this in the bag.

    MG – the Senate numbers may be a function of incumbency.

  326. MichiganGuy says:

    Chicon, that maybe true for the Senate but, not for the House. Although, we have a lot of cowards retiring.

  327. mnw says:


    Thx for all that info.

    One of the obvious lessons from Lamb/Saccone was that the GOP nominee has to be able to FR locally.

  328. Tim says:

    #343: No, he isn’t. He just despises Trump. I know that, because he told me that.

  329. Bitterlaw says:

    People who never even ran for office should not call those who are retiring from office “cowards.” Yeah. I said it.

  330. Tina says:

    IT was not comedysdetermination that no prosecutor would have…

    He needed to simply pass the referral on to the non partisan doj,

    He is clearly caught up in so many lies and is in cya mode.

    What a loser, a wi p, and a dirty cop.

  331. Bitterlaw says:

    Tim – MD openly cheerleads for Dem candidates in his district. He hates his Republican Congressman for not doing enough to preserve Obamacare.

    I despise Trump even though I voted for him. Despite that hatred, I will never vote for a Democrat. I will keep voting for the GOP.

  332. Tina says:

    Weiners device was obtained on 9/28. So, comedy sat on the weiner for 32 days, why?

    Why sit on the weiner that long?

    Of course, the nypd and ny fbi were leaking that comedy and mccabe were sitting on the laptop.

  333. Tina says:

    So, because the nypd outted comedy, he oanicked and disclosed the laptop containing weiners emails,

    The fact alone that emails feom hilary ended up on weiners laptop is an issue, a criminal offense.

  334. Tina says:

    Above all,

    It is drat vs drat vs drat.

    Comedy vs mccabe vs loretta lynch,

    They are going down for criminal,activities.

  335. Tina says:

    Donald J. Trump
    Donald J. Trump
    Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers. Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!

  336. Phil says:

    Pass the popcorn, Tina!

  337. dblaikie says:

    Mich Guy, remember that the Democrats are defending far more seats than the GOP in the midterms so the disparity in the fund raising is more understandable.

    I know that I may be nuts. But I will say it again the blue wave has crested and the red wave is on the rise.

  338. MichiganGuy says:

    #349 mnw, your welcome

  339. Tina says:

    Yup, drat vs vs drat.

    Lots of poopcorn.

    Notice how the mistress and pete turned against mccabe?

    People who never even ran for office should not call those who are retiring from office “cowards.” Yeah. I said it.
    BL, do you really think calling what you did a serious run for office? You knew you had no chance at winning. You raised $0. Did you even campaign? Did you have a debate with your opponent? Did you even knock on one door? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

  341. Phil says:

    It keeps getting better, Tina. Lanny Davis has an entire op ed in The Hill this morning calling Comey “a self serving liar”

    LOL Don’t you just love it when a brawl breaks out and Democrats and Never Trumpers start hitting each other in the mouth!

  342. MichiganGuy says:

    dblaikie says:

    I know that I may be nuts. But I will say it again the blue wave has crested and the red wave is on the rise.
    I don’t know if, you’re nuts. I think that it is way too early to tell if, there will be a blue wave or not people need to stop panicking and let’s help our candidates win.

  343. dblaikie says:

    Oh, I like getting out there early! If your right you feel like a prophet, if you are wrong you will still survive.

    Panic is the last thing that folks should do right now. That is what the liberals want us to do. The economy is strong and at the end of the day, folks will end up voting their pocket books. But more than that, because of their over reaching on the 2nd and stifling free speech, and because of their refusal to make our borders safe, a rage in the heartland of this country is rising. It is the great story that no media outlet will report.

    Because of that it is the left who may need to panic.

  344. Tim says:

    But, it’s all about Trump, Bitterlaw. MD is certainly no Democrat. He simply feels the GOP abandoned who it is when it ran the Big Orange……His votes are no a protest of that. I don’t blame him. If Trump had run as a Democrat, I would have happily supported the GOP nominee. The Country is more important than the Party. That’s why I have cast eight GOP votes in my lifetime.

  345. Phil says:

    I will cast a vote for a Democrat the day I can find one that isn’t a committed leftist. I haven’t found one since the early 70s.

  346. Tina says:

    Maybe fake flapper will ask comedy why he drafted the hillary exoneration memo months before anybody was interviewed.

    The clinton reporter, stephowhatever, could have asked that question,

  347. Tina says:

    Trump at 51 percent in rasmussen.

    Add 10.

  348. Phil says:

    Over and under on whether Tapper will ask that question of Comey is exactly zero, Tina.

  349. Tina says:

    Nbc reports that comedy has no political bias or affiliation.


  350. Tina says:

    Comedy will not go on faux news.

    You know he is picking his spots wirh friendlies.

  351. Tina says:

    And mccabe failed to note to fbi that he owns a residence close to the clinton residence in ny.

    Literally just down the road.

    It keeps geting better and better.

  352. Phil says:


    Tina, I go back to the Powerline article I referred everyone to the other day. The more shrill the MSM and late night comics get the more it becomes a case of diminishing returns. Trump fatigue derangement fatigue.

  353. Tina says:

    I wonder whick crack pot will have longer staying power

    Comedy or Camera hogg?

    More of both, please

  354. Tina says:

    Agreed phil, theynare over playing eveything.

    He responds, i know the tweets can be a bit of a pain, but he has no other choice, but to engage.

    Not responding = bush 43=26 percent aporoval.

  355. Phil says:

    Their fifteen minutes are about up.

  356. Bitterlaw says:

    MG – I ran 3 times for office. 2 barrow losses locally and the expected blowout for Congress. Farrah refuses to debate me.

  357. Tina says:

    Notice how comedy lies

    I gave the memos to a friend. Statement before congress.

    Once it was determined that the memos were classified, comedy states, i gave them to my sttorney,

    Can we get an fbi raid of the lawyah uh friend?

  358. Tina says:

    I do not care if the memos were classified.

    They are federal records, mishandled.

    They are memos that are executive privilege.

    Comedy will be charged.

  359. Bitterlaw says:

    Tim – MD is also supporting gun control now. He used to be a Second Amendment absolutist.

    You said you should vote for Country over Party but you have never voted for a Republican for President. You really thought Carter and Mondale were better for America than Reagan?

  360. Tina says:





    Pete the cheat.

    All appear to have flipped against comedy and mccabe.

    Now, loretta lynch has entered and blasted away at comedy.

    This is a drat turf war.

  361. Phil says:

    Sounds like MD has absolutely lost his mind.

    I used to really like the guy. Now he seems fine with putting Pelosi in charge of the House. Just plain weird.

    Good riddance.

    I don’t like Trump on his over the top tweeting, tariffs, and willingness to sign the ridiculous spending bill…..but it doesn’t send me into the arms of the left. That’s just nuts.

  362. NYCmike says:

    Tim is f*ll of sh*t.

    He is the same person who thinks Social Security and Medicare programs are solvent, and will be there for his grandchildren in the future.

  363. NYCmike says:

    “Sounds like MD has absolutely lost his mind.”

    -His wife, obviously, wears the pants in that family!

  364. Phil says:

    Philly suburbanites are just different ducks than Texas suburbanites. However, I have to think MD is the extreme for up there. I am assuming MD lives I a Philly collar county. Bitter would know for sure if that is the case.

  365. DW says:

    Looks like the NL east could turn into a pennant race between the Mets and Phillies.

  366. MichiganGuy says:

    MD doesn’t just hate Trump.
    Via Twitter:
    1.MD calls for a boycott on Laura Ingraham.
    2.Supporting dem candidate for his district.
    3.Calls John Bolton is a nut job.
    4.Confirms he is no longer a Republican. “At times like this, it comes in handy to have been a Republican previously.”
    5.MD is hoping for 50 to 70 seat gain in the house for the dems.
    I have not seen one positive mention of a Republican. He doesn’t just hate Trump. He is openly rooting for the Democrats to take over.

  367. mnw says:


    Andrew McCarthy at NRO believes the real peril to Trump comes from the investigation in SDNY, not from Mueller.

    Definitely worth a read. I decided long ago that muh Russia was a joke, but the SDNY thing snuck up on me.

  368. MichiganGuy says:

    I had the links to each one but, Hal thought that was too many links. He says it’s awaiting moderation. In other words you will never see them. :mrgreen:

  369. MichiganGuy says:

    mnw, as the article says “While it can be unsavory, it is not illegal per se to enter arm’s-length non-disclosure agreements (NDAs). I doubt there will be any criminal charges against Trump because of Trump’s flings with pornographic actress Stephanie Clifford (a.k.a. Stormy Daniels) and former Playboy model Karen McDougal or paying off his former Trump-building doorman.

  370. Bitterlaw says:

    Phil – MD lives 6 miles from me in Chester county. I am 6 miles from the Philadelphia border in Delaware county.

  371. NYCmike says:

    The only thing I am surprised about, regarding MD, is that Robbie hasn’t re-posted anything from his Twitter feed yet!

  372. NYCmike says:

    MD did accuse Paul Ryan of ass-kissing Trump, and leaving us with trillion$ of debt due to the tax cut…….I am sure MD thinks the Democrats would do better in regards to debt/deficits. /

  373. Phil says:

    Bitter, got it. I knew you guys were close to Philly and probably in the collar counties although I guess Chester County is a little further out as I view the map.

  374. Bitterlaw says:

    Chester is more open and starts to have farms as you go west

  375. Phil says:

    Yep, putting Pelosi and Schumer in charge of the budget is really going to clean up the national debt.

    The guy just flipped out. Not often you see a conservative Republican switch to being a lefty in a micro second. Only other conversion I’ve ever seen like it is the David Brock fellow who went from Clinton critic to Clinton apologist overnight – and even that I think was about personal financial gain. Defies all logic….

  376. mnw says:


    I read the article a bit differently. I could envision a conspiracy to obstruct justice in some as-yet-unknown way. As McCarthy stated, a judge found probable cause to believe a federal crime of some sort had been committed by the attorney.

  377. Bitterlaw says:


  378. Tina says:

    The whole nda thing is interesting. Mccarthy is interesting too, but this article appears a bit flat.

    I am not sure if mccarthy mentioned this, but the whole issue of using a heloc is also interesting,

    Not sure what the kie about a heloc is. I do not seem to remember if theynask you what the ourpose of the loan is.

    It is my understanding that you can take the cash out, subject to equity abd valuations, and can use the money for aby purpose. So, if the kawyer paid somebody off using those monies?

    Where is Dr. Sanjay Gupta ?

  381. Tina says:

    The jebots maggie hack says it was a dud, Play Video
    New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman said former FBI Director James Comey’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos was a dud and did not live up to the hype. “The interview last night [on “20/20?] aggravated a lot of people,” she continued. “But it’s a much lower-grade burn than I thought it would be.”

  382. Tina says:

    LOretta lynch is key,

    It was a payoff, end the cf investigation and we give you something, like sc.

    13) CONCLUSION (contd)

    In states Trump lost (CO, DE, ME) there have been extremely minor changes.

    In both AZ and IA, red states, the Republican majorities have grown (so much for “muh blue wave” in AZ).

    FL is within range of being a red state by 2020, or dead even.

    No battleground state that Trump won has seen an improvement in the net voter reg changes since Nov. 2016. Right now he would take NH in addition to his 306 EVs from 2016. NM and NV are too close to call. Trump’s margins in NC and NV would be much larger.

  384. MichiganGuy says:

    #399 mnw Cohen may have broken the law but, I don’t think Trump knowingly broke the law.

  385. DW says:

    Weekly Jose Reyes update.

    Reyes used to be a star for the Mets. For some unknown reason, the Mets continue to pretend he has major league talent.

    Reyes currently has 17 plate appearances in 2018, managed to draw 1 walk, has 0 hits and a 0.000 batting average.

    Tebow could have been on the roster and not had worse numbers, but would have helped more with ticket sales.

    The only explanation for Reyes being on the roster is he must know something about the General Manager and is blackmailing him.

  386. Clifford F. Thies says:


    While Trump referred to the package as cutting taxes, and tax cuts were indeed part of the package; overall, the tax reform act only increased the deficit by $150 B. per year, averaged over a ten-year time horizon, without assuming any dynamic effect. That is to say, the tax base was broadened, deductions curtailed, etc., were also in the package.

    With even a modest dynamic effect, the act will be revenue neutral. But, even ignoring dynamic effects, 1.456 trillion is not “trillions.” It is more than a trillion, but less than trillions.

    “Overall, it provides a net tax reduction of
    approximately $1.456 trillion over the 10-year “budget window” (according to estimates provided by the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) that do not take into account macroeconomic/dynamic effects).”

  387. NYCmike says:


    The Mets are 12-2.

    The ONLY explanation for Reyes being on the roster is “DO NO HARM”…….until you need to intervene.

  388. DW says:

    Perhaps what is most remarkable about the Mets’ 12-2 start is the fact that Yoenis Cespedes, their highest paid slugger, and biggest right-handed bat is mired in a terrible slump, batting just .190 (11 for 58) and striking out 26 times.

    If he ever starts hitting, then the Mets could start winning games by more than a one or two run margin like they are now.

    Meanwhile, the Mets have a young outfielder named Brandon Nimmo who cannot start because the Mets have committed to an outfield of Cespedes, Conforto and Bruce. But Nimmo in just 21 plate appearances is hitting .400 with a double, triple, and homer, and he drew 4 walks.

    Despite his salary, the Mets should bench Cespedes for a couple of games and let him watch Nimmo hit for a while.

  389. DW says:

    411 – I understand baseball is a game filled with superstitions. But Reyes has done absolutely no good. In fact there was one game he committed an error which could have been costly but the Mets overcame it.

  390. GPO says:

    Weekly Jose Reyes update.

    Reyes currently has 17 plate appearances in 2018, managed to draw 1 walk, has 0 hits and a 0.000 batting average.

    The only explanation for Reyes being on the roster is he must know something about the General Manager and is blackmailing him

    My guess is that when TJ Rivera is healthy and off DL, Reyes will be released

    Lets Go Mets!

  391. Tina says:

    Comedys friend tells him that his interview was terrible.

  392. NYCmike says:

    “Everything Trump does in this realm is suspicious but Scooter Libby did get a raw deal.”


    Please explain how Trump has raised “suspicions” in this area.


    *The sign in BS at the other site can take a hike.

  393. NYCmike says:

    Libby got a raw deal from Dubya, as well as from Fitzgerald, and our legal system.

  394. NYCmike says:

    “I do not believe I have ever stated definitively that he is a “secret Democrat”, but clearly, he is not a traditional Republican. He’s out for himself. He has called himself a Democrat, an Independent, and a Republican over the years, and if he lives long enough, might cycle through them all again, but he has always been about himself first and foremost.”

    -Well said, “CG”. You repeated what I stated before he was elected.

    You also stated a great reason to vote for him, AGAINST HILLARY, since she was clearly a very liberal, ideological opponent.

  395. NYCmike says:

    “He’s out for himself.”

    -As opposed to “CG”, who sacrifices EVERYTHING for his fellow man. ALL $$ he makes goes to the less fortunate……just like the Bush family.

    JEB!2016 lives in a large tent on the Kennebunkport grounds.

  396. DW says:

    The Mets’ other ‘problem’ is their backup center fielder, Juan Lagares, known for being a late inning defensive replacement for his gold-glove, but also known for being light-hitting happens to be batting .350 (7 for 20) but cannot get much playing time because the bigger bats get the playing time. If Cespedes continues to struggle they could move Conforto to left, Lagares in center, then put Nimmo in right if Bruce struggles.

  397. Bitterlaw says:

    DW loves Tebow the baseball player as much as Jason loves Tebow the football player.

    I did not know that the Mets were hurting for ticket sales and Tebow must save them.

  398. NYCmike says:

    -California Republicans (stop laughing!) should run on this 1 item alone, since nothing else seems to work.

  399. Bitterlaw says:

    Tebow is 30

    Reyes is 34

    DW – Either way, not exactly a youth movement for the Mets.

  400. DW says:

    421 – you take me wrong….my argument was to show how bad Reyes is, not to show that Tebow was better. Tebow will not be a big league player.

  401. NYCmike says:

    “DW – Either way, not exactly a youth movement for the Mets.”

    -4 years younger for a pro athlete is a YUGE difference, actually, IF the talent is there.

  402. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – DW said the talent is not there.

  403. NYCmike says:

    “NYC – DW said the talent is not there.”

    -Agreed, for either player, although one is still working on it at the proper place.

    He is telling comedy to stfu. Maybe not specifically mentioned, but i think the lawyer is worried about comedy getting caught legally.

  412. Tina says:

    I was 80% sure that trump was justified in firing comedy,

    After hearing from comedy, i am 100% sure that he needed to be fired,

    He failed to disclose the origins of the dossier. Failed to brief the president on it and appaears to have tried to blacmail trump.

  413. Tina says:

    The weiner emails were discovered 36 days before the election.

    Nypd leaked it, while comedy and mccabe tried to cover up everything,

    Clear that comedy is a hyoer oartisan, drat enabker.

    “46% of voters believe Comey should be prosecuted for leaking to the media while he was Director of the FBI, which Comey has admitted doing.”

    Whom is the better person, at least in this instance? Bush or Trump?

    I am sure “CG” and Robbie are glad that Trump has corrected a wrong, and applauded Trump for it. /

  416. Tina says:

    I think it was evident that the pardon was more worthy after 2015 when the key witness recanted her testimony and informed us that the prosecution hid evidence,

    No doubt the prosecutor wanted Cheney, and then needed a scalp when he could not get the vp.

  417. Bitterlaw says:

    Since the article said the witness recanted in 2015 (more than 6 years after GWB left office), the pardon is irrelevant on the issue of who is a better person. GWB was faced with a lawful conviction. Trump had new developments to consider.

  418. Bitterlaw says:

    I was typing when Tina posted.

    Damn. Tina and I agreed on something.

  419. NYCmike says:

    “GWB was faced with a lawful conviction.”

    -Has Bush PUBLICLY commended Trump for his action regarding Libby?

    Bush has been public about his put-downs.

  420. mnw says:

    If every prisoner was freed whenever a witness recanted, long after testifying under oath, then get out of jail free cards would be everywhere! Usually witnesses aren’t very happy about having to testify in the first place. Appellate courts usually ignore recantation, with good reason.

    Disclaimer: I don’t know a damn thing about Libby or the recanting witness.

    David Hogg on twitter announces another boycott this week. Says “stay tuned” for who the target will be.

    Libby also showed or demonstrated that he rehabilitated himself.

    He got his dc law license back years later. The reviewing officials also felt that he did nothing wrong.

    New facts emerged years down the road,

    The key witness recanting is Judith Miller.

  426. dblaikie says:

    Every time David Hogg announces a new boycott it just adds to the anger that folks who believe in the 2nd Amendment already feel.

    Today’s polling reports shouldn’t be taken seriously individually. In fact the only thing that today’s polls can show you is general trends. With that in mind I think today’s polls show that the so-called blue wave may have been big 6 months ago. But like I said earlier, the blue wave has crested. Sorry Robbie.

    Oh with the Generic Ballot so out of whack with what he knows to be a fact, I am sure Robbie and the other trolls won’t be around today.

  427. Tina says:

    Generic Congressional Ballot:

    ABC News/Washington Post, RV, 4/8-11
    From the Washington Post. Democrats hold an advantage ahead of the midterm elections, but a Washington Post-ABC News poll shows that edge has narrowed since January, a signal to party leaders and strategists that they could be premature in anticipating a huge wave of victories in November.

    The poll finds that the gap between support for Democratic vs. Republican House candidates dropped by more than half since the beginning of the year. WOW!

    If you don’t vote for the Republican candidate you are helping the Democrats. Name a Democrat who was better than their Republican opponent (do not bring up David Duke since he was a scumbag and just used the Republicsn name).

    Let’s see…

    Gore 2000

    Kerry 2004

    Donnelly 2012
    First MD and Author come clean and admit they are dems and now Wesley. Not really a surprise to me. Who will be the next dem to come out of the closet so to speak. We should start a pool. Robbie?

    I always knew you were an idiot, Elmer. Can snyone on here honestly think I’m a Democrat after reading my posts?

    Yes, Bush was a colossal failure as President, and I unequivocally turned against him. That was his fault, not mine. He should have been a better President.

    As far as Donnelly and Mourdock, I’m sorry, but when some moron actively tries to justify impregnation by rape by calling it “God’s will,” I’m done with him. Apparently Hoosiers–the people who mattered in that race–felt the same way I did.

    I have worked on GOP political campaigns in the past. I have contributed exclusively to GOP candidates for office. Never once have I voted for anyone other than a Republican for any office.

    Saying certain Democrats were better than Republicans who shat all over the country the way GWB did in no way makes me a Democrat.

  435. Wes says:

    It’s good to see Republicans are on the rise in the generic ballot. If they can keep it within a couple of points through November, this should be a normal first midterm rather than a disaster of one.

  436. Tina says:

    Ana Navarro
    Ana Navarro
    Maybe it’s just me…the more I hear from @comey, the more conflicted I feel. I want to believe him that this is all about loyalty to country and inviolable respect for the truth. But damn, the guy has a big ego, is selectively inconsistent. I find him obnoxiously self-righteous.

    I could not disagree more, Wes. But if you prefer Democrats, I can’t stop you. President Gore could have destroyed the economy with environmental EOs. Kerry would be as ad or worse than Obama on foreign policy.

    I know you will say that there would never have been President Obama without GWB. Pure speculation since Obama would have still wanted to be President after Gore or Kerry finished their terms.If Gore or Kerry had been defeated in 2004 or 2008 or 2012, we might still have gotten Obama.

    Bitterlaw, your speculation reveals your colossal ignorance. Obama won primarily because GWB failed as President and triggered the biggest backlash against either party since Watergate. For Obama to have won after Gore or Kerry departed the White House eould have required having a different Republican to have failed as massively as GWB.

    Yhst’s possible, but there’s no evidence it would have happened.

    Thus, you justify your sycophantic support of a failed President with nothing but unfounded speculation.

  443. Wes says:

    I don’t know if anyone’s noticed this, but Heidi Heitkamp is one the way down in popularity:

    That means Cramr has ann increasingly good shot st beating her and returning this seat yo the GOP fold for the first time since 1960.

    I will definitely be contributing to Cramer.

  444. Phil says:

    The downside of the poll is that among likely voters Democrats are still up 10.

    The good news is that the voter enthusiasm gap will close as the election gets closer. Dems are stirred up by hatred of Trump and I don’t see that getting any more intense than it already is. Republicans will rev up as election day gets closer. I think their enthusiasm number is a meager 39 percent presently and Democrats are in the low 60s. I don’t expect that number to close all the way on election day but it will be substantially closer.

  445. MichiganGuy says:

    mnw, when even the washingtonpost shows the Republicans and Trump are improving you know it must be real. WP hates Trump more than any other newspaper or at least the same as the NY Times.

  465. Wes says:

    I agree, Mnw. The Second Amendment is an extremely salient part of the Constitution to many voters. The Brady Bill was a significant factor in erosion of Dem support in rural areas in 1994. Awakening those voters against their pols is not what Democrats want.

    It may be the issue that helps Republicans hold Congress in November.

    The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that part of a federal law that makes it easier to deport immigrants convicted of crimes is too vague and Gorsuch was the tiebreaking vote

  520. mnw says:


    That court decision you referenced MIGHT effect 1 illegal alien in 1000. It really has almost nothing to do with immigration. That’s either media spin or ignorance, & probably a combination of both.

    That decision WILL cause the sentences of many drug dealers to be reduced, though— the ones who are in fed custody.

  521. Paul says:

    Gorsuch is getting taken by the willy wiles of Ginsberg.

  522. mnw says:

    The decision is in line with several earlier decisions construing the definition of “crime of violence” as too vague.

    However, an illegal alien is deportable with or without a conviction for a “crime of violence”— deportable without ANY convictions whatever, in fact.

    A prior conviction for a crime of violence is a SENTENCING factor— before today’s decision, such a conviction could have resulted in a harsher sentence.

    As stated, most beneficiaries of this “crime of violence” decision are NOT going to be illegal aliens! They are going to be regular fed BOP inmates.

  523. Tina says:

    Yup, vague. Grouch is a strict constructionalist. No issues with that.

  525. MichiganGuy says:

    Woman Partially Sucked Out of Jet When Window Breaks Mid-Flight; Plane Lands Safely in Philadelphia

  526. mnw says:


    Not sure I clarified it.

    It’s one of a long line of similar, previous decisions.

    The heart of the problem was that certain state statutes, say burglary, for example, sometimes criminalize BOTH violent offenses (burglary of a dwelling), & NON-violent conduct too (burglary of a car).

    That’s what started all the “vagueness” challenges.

    Again, this has to do with giving defendants with violent prior convictions longer sentences…or not.

    From this, you can probably see that the whole thing has precious little to do with illegal aliens. And nothing whatever to do with deportation of illegal aliens.

    Thanks for indulging my rant. I thought the news coverage was even worse than the usual abysmal reporting about legal stories.

    Seemed like what the MSM wanted to report was, “Gorsuch abandons Trump & Joins Liberals! Game Over for Trump!”

  527. NYCmike says:


    Can you clarify again, please?

    Is Gorsuch attempting to get Congress to take more responsibility for the laws written, as opposed to it being left to judges and bureaucrats?

    Why would the other “more conservative” judges not agree with that way of thinking?

  528. mnw says:


    First of all, my apologies to everybody for killing the thread. Zzzz, I know.

    This minor issue doesn’t lend itself to “Which side is the conservative side?” analysis, imo.

    Some people will get sentences cut because of statutory interpretation issues. State laws aren’t drafted to please federal judges.

    The dissenting judges are saying that “this ruling today defies common sense.” But so did the 5-6 similar decision before this one, so the majority felt that it’s too late to turn back now.

    More Hogg,

  550. Phil says:

    Yep – the greatest generation was remarkable and it is sad watching the numbers dwindle to so few. Lost my dad out of that generation in 2004. WW II vet who like most from that generation worked hard, sacrificed for his family, and passed on his values to my sister and I.

    These people are sorely missed.

  551. Phil says:


    More Hogg. Much more.

  552. Tgca says:

    Condolences to the Bush family.

    I have a different view on life so I don’t feel really sad because I believe Babs Bush had a very long, good, interesting, privileged life. Like all, she had some bad down times like the loss of a child,and struggling with depression and challenges in the public eye by being a politicians wife, but overall, she seemed to relish the life she had. So good for her. In a 100 years, no one will remember her or anyone else posting or reading here tonight.

  553. Tgca says:

    I wa fascinated with WWII as an adolescent and used to read all these books on it. Forgot most of the facts now but I do admire how that generation pulled together and rose to the challenge to triumph over pure evil. Lest not forget that a lot of this had to do with their upbringing and family roots in Europe so there was some strong ties to Europe and an importance in saving Europe. I would like to believe that when push comes to shove, any generation would do the same but often I wonder now with what I see on the streets today, especially with much US self-hatred among certain groups in cities and schools.

    I would like to believe that as well, Tgca. Unfortunately, I can’t see it for the reasons you cite in your last sentence.

    Greatest Generation had one common bond. Love of the country with all its flaws and a universal desire to defend it. Now? I would say half the country believes America IS the problem in the world and has been schooled to that point of view. The schools and the media reinforce that point of view every day 24/7.

    It’s not the same.

    Once again I wonder when folks are going to realize that the blue wave has crested and the red wave is building. Surf is up.

    There is a time line issue between comedy and his friend getting the classified memos and the leaks. Looks like comedy is in trouble here,

    Second, Priestap is still working with the fbi, An FBI agent was found guilty of leaking classified information yesterday, and he was involved with the case, made a statement yesterday,

  573. dblaikie says:

    The next counties to revolt against California’s
    Sanctuary law could be San Bernardino, Riverside or even Imperial Counties. The telling thing is that these are the border counties in California and they are on the front lines of our porous border.

    The important thing about this is not only the anger it reveals against the jackboot, liberal, regime in Sacramento, but that thanks to Governor Moonbeam Brown this will now become the dominant issue in at least two of the three largest counties in California. You add Orange County with San Diego County you have close to seven million people. If Riverside and San Bernardino join in that will be over 10 million people. This will give the liberals a huge headache in the state where the Conservatives were going to swept away just a few months ago.

  574. NYCmike says:


    Exactly why Robbie’s hyperventilating for the last 15 months was so short-sighted. Immigration, tax cuts, sanctuary city laws, and the 2nd Amendment will be larger, more substantive issues than Trump Derangement Syndrome.

  575. Michael says:

    Democrats GCB lead on RCP is down to their lowest for Trump’s term at D+5.5.

    This is very concerning for Democrats, considering in order to win the House they need it to be at D+5. With the lead down to near the bare minimum/MoE the Democrats House chances suddenly are on the ropes.

  579. Michael says:

    With the Reuters poll switching out I have almost no doubt that the GCB lead for the Democrats will reach its lowest in Trump’s term.

    Simply if Reuters goes lower than the D+10 than they projected in their last poll (very likely due to the Trump approval numbers I saw over the week for them) we will likely see the D’s average GCB drop below 5.5 and possibly below 5.

    Why is it important?

    1. It’s the lowest all of Trump’s term as I said.

    2. Bringing it to D+4 likely means the GOP has the slight advantage at keeping the House.

    3. D+4 means that the few GOP pickup opportunities, CT-05, MN-01, MN-08, and NH-01, come into play. Which could make the difference in a House majority race.

    Let’s hope that it drops. Of course the media won’t cover it but we’ll know.

    Just read an interesting article on Drudge about designer babies. Folks making many embryos and then choosing which one to bring to term based on genetic and physical attributes.

    Also, there will future possibility of stealing DNA from someone to make a baby without their consent because in the future you don’t necessarily need sperm and egg donors. Therefore 2 women or 2 men could biologically create a child without someone of the opposite gender.

    I don’t want to be around in a world where babies are manufactured to order but I’m sure people will adapt to the times where it will be accepted to make a child simply from DNA by altering how the genes develop to sperm or eggs.

  582. Tgca says:

    Giving that future technology we could conceivably develop a baby from stolen DNA from Jason and NYC or maybe Bitter and Tina or Robbie and CG. Anything is possible I guess. Interesting indeed.

    RAS: I think so.

    Yes, year of the Golden Knight. Probably a good thing for NHL. The NHL is holding up better attendance & revenue-wise than MLB & NFL, btw.

    For one thing, hockey isn’t saddled with those monstrously huge venues! I read where a recent White Sox v. Rays game in Chicago had total live attendance of 784. The club announced 5000+, but some journalist actually counted the attendees. And then there are the Marlins…

  596. Tgca says:

    I think many Dems are trashing Comey for 2 main reasons:

    1. They are still miffed with how he commented on the investigation in a public setting in 2016, and

    2. They expect that IG may come out with damaging report on him or his team as well.

    However, if IG comments on the sloppiness of the investigation, I doubt it will be exonerating HRC though Dems May spin it that way.

  597. mnw says:

    Wes commented on the Stalinist administrative style of RRH recently.

    My own observation is that RRH seems to be getting more RRH-like all the time now. NeverTrumpers seem to post a plurality of the comments, and second place goes to self-admitted DEMs.

    This is odd, considering that NeverTrumpers have dwindled like Spotted Owls— except at RRH, where they are flourishing! Lots of chatter there about what happens when Trump is inevitably removed. The Kindergarden (sic) Kid would feel right at home at RRH, if in fact he’s not already there.

  598. Tgca says:

    According to drudge, NYT is pushing a Pence-Haley ticket conspiracy in 2020. This is just absurd and silly to speak about that at this point. Pure speculation and not newsworthy. A Pence-Haley ticket trying to undermine Trump would probably turn 25% of GOP against them ensuring a GE loss. Trump will not be primaried because he would fight like hell and critically damage them both. They must know that. You don’t angle for your boss’ job while he’s still the boss and not expect any serious blowback, especially when you’re boss is Trump.

    Besides, all the accomplishments the last 16 months are attributable to Trump and neither Pence or Haley so what would they run on that distinguishes them bring more successful then him. Neither one would have gotten to the na,e recognition they enjoy without Trump.

    Matt Rosendale is easily winning the GOP Sen nomination in MT. I like him a lot. Don’t have any feel for whether he can beat Tester, but he’s NOT going to emerge from the primary bloodied & broke… like whoever wins in IN is.

  603. Michael says:

    What’s Wes’ comment name mnw?

  604. Tgca says:

    I think Wes comment name is a 3 letters starting with “W” and ending with “S.” Not sure what the middle character is though.

    Is that helpful Michael?

  605. mnw says:

    Wes always posts as Wes as far as I know. I may not understand your question. I don’t think he posts comments at RRH, but I’m not absolutely sure. I’m signed up over there, but I never post— one time in the last year, I think.

    Rdel who used to post here posts at RRH. Pity he left.

  606. Phil says:

  607. Tgca says:

    I think like many political appointees, they get a little ahead of themselves at time. Haley’s response was a bit arrogant with the “ I don’t get confused” response regarding the Russia sanctions. Sure, there was lack of communication between the WH and her but she should just let that go instead of trying to shift blame. I found her to be a bit annoying in the primary and so she should learn from that because she won’t win a peeing contest with the WH. She backed the losing candidate in the primary and was giving an opportunity so like with any opportunity, just deal with the ups and downs and don’t try to outshine others or it will backfire. It’s the nature of the beast, all these political appointees all see themselves as most important.

  608. Tgca says:

    Is RRH employing the Rdel curve now? I’ve nit seen it around lately.

  609. Tgca says:

    Comey says it’s not normal to say private citizens should be in jail? Ok. Is it normal to use law enforcement to infringe on others rights, use extreme scare tactics on witnesses and their families to extract statements from folks that may not be true as a means to an end result? Is it normal to conclude the outcome of an investigation before its complete and witnesses are interviewed? Is it normal lie under oath? Chutzpah Comey! Chutzpah!

  610. Tgca says:

    Per Newsmax, Comey tells reporter he believes Trump firing him is obstruction of justice. This guy’s story keeps changing. He also believes Trump hurt his feelings I hear and needs a big hug.

    The interviewer also quoted that “prognosticator” Nate Silver predicted Hillary would have won the election if held the day before the Comey re-opening the investigation.


    And on election night, everyone predicted Hillary would win with confidence levels in tthe 80% range. How did that work out? Elections are at a point in time and things changed. I doubt all those white working class males she lost in WI, PA, and MI had anything to with Comeys statements.

  611. jason says:

    A view from an expert:

    “Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta joined the chorus of criticism for James Comey on Tuesday, calling the former FBI director an “idiot” during a CNN interview.”

  612. mnw says:

    I’ve forgotten what the Rdel curve was.

  613. jason says:

    “could have won the election if held the day before the Comey re-opening the investigation.”

    I think we have finally found a way to have Jeb win the nomination.

    Hold all the primaries on 6/22/2015.

    “Jeb leads the GOP pack: A brand-new national NBC/WSJ poll finds Jeb Bush leading the crowded Republican presidential field, with 22% of GOP primary voters saying he’s their first choice. He’s followed by Scott Walker at 17%, Marco Rubio at 14%, and Ben Carson at 11%.”

    and on this very day, guess who was the most unpopular GOP candidate…drum roll…

    In addition to the GOP horserace question, our NBC/WSJ asked Republican primary voters this question: Could you see yourselves supporting this candidate or not? The responses are telling:

    Rubio: 74% yes, 15% no (+59)
    Bush: 75%-22% (+53)
    Walker: 57%-19% (+38)
    Huckabee: 65%-32% (+33)
    Carson: 50%-21% (+29)
    Perry: 53%-31% (+22)
    Cruz: 51%-31% (+20)
    Santorum: 49%-40% (+9)
    Jindal: 36%-28% (+8)
    Paul: 49%-45% (+4)
    Fiorina: 31%-29% (+2)
    Kasich: 25%-30% (-5)
    Christie: 36%-55% (-19)
    Graham: 27%-49% (-22)
    Pataki: 13%-44% (-31)
    Trump 32%-66% (-34)

    So TGCA’s point that polls are snapshot in time… yeah, really.

    The left has realized Comey is not an asset. Watching them run from him is real entertainment.

    Cruz 47 Beto 44

  619. dblaikie says:

    633 Certainly the counties in the central valley could join. The reason why I mentioned San Bernardino and Riverside is because that is the so called inland empire. Until Obama this was republican territory. Whether they join the revolt or not these actions in Orange and San Diego will force this issue to forefront in the 2020 elections. It could be so powerful that seats that were considered safe a few months ago may be at risk for the Dems. Here is just a few districts: 31,36,41 and 52. These are just a few.

    Folks need to understand that these County Council people reveal what it going on in their districts far more than any poll. That they would take this action, which is very unusual, shows that this immigration issue is an out of control burn in these areas

  620. Phil says:


    You want to know why that poll is BS. The same poll has Greg Abbott winning by 8.

    I live in Texas. Try 20.

    Cruz 47 Beto 44

    Absolute garbage poll. Has Abbott only winning 49-40, despite a 54-33 approval and Trump only at 43% approval, despite 42% nationally.

  622. Waingro says:

    #654, Phil stick that poll in the garbage dumpster….move it!

  623. Tgca says:

    CA is a mess. Sooner or later it might be best to separate it into 2 or 3 states. Dems won’t like that because it will take away electoral votes they automatically count in their purse. It’s too big and lopsided control in 2 major cities to benefit its diverse population. I think we could have a NW CA, a SW CA and then CA with populations near evenly split. If 1/3 of that goes to the GOP, then Dems lose about 18 EV immediately. We could only wish.

  624. Waingro says:

    Another huge outlier sign in the QPac Texas poll is the ridiculously high number of “independents” at 36%. These same alleged “independents” (*cough Berniecrats *cough) favor Beto 51-37 and Valdez 42-41. LOL.

  625. Phil says:

    Yeah, Valdez up over Abbott among indies is laughable.

    However, keep those Beto contributions coming in, libs.

  626. jason says:

    So Cruz gets 33% of the Hispanic vote but only 47% overall?

    Okay then.

  627. jason says:

    Also Cruz has big leads on the economy, guns, immigration and taxes. He even leads on health care.

    So what is Beto actually ahead in?

  628. jason says:

    Don’t get me wrong I would love to see grandstanding Ted out of the Senate.

    But I don’t want to see Beto win the election to send that message.

    I know NYC would disagree….

  629. Waingro says:

    My guess is Cruz wins by about 12-15 points.

  630. Tgca says:

    -Chappaquiddick is in the movie theaters now

  641. Tina says:

    Or McCabe.

    I find Hogg more honest than comedy though.

    I disagree with both of them, and would not tell them to quiet themselves.

  642. Tina says:


    Comedy is no longer a Republican.


  643. NYCmike says:

    “Comedy is no longer a Republican.”

    Sky Queen?

  648. NYCmike says:

    “Cruz also urged Congress to pass his bill that would eliminate the capital gains tax on inflation. He explained that if someone invests $1,000 and 10 years later sells the investment for $2,000, they are taxed on the full gain “ignoring” inflation.”
