    Hogan didn’t pass any of my litmus tests. Dump him for a real conservative who will lose to any of the Democrats and send a message.

    Haven’t I read that an incumbent polling in the mid-40’s is in trouble?

    Rand caved on Pompeo. Guess he contemplated explaining to KY GOP why “Kerry good! Pompeo bad!” & decided he didn’t want to do that.

    I am sure the MSM will jump right on the charge that the Hillary campaign laundered $84 million.

    Let me be the first to react to the Hillary laundering story.

    Did you read what Trump said about Mika’s face.

    I mean let’s keep the focus on the REAL scandals.

    Thank you.

  11. jason says:

    “Rand caved on Pompeo. Guess he contemplated explaining to KY GOP why “Kerry good! Pompeo bad!” & decided he didn’t want to do that.”

    No, he saw that several Dems announced they going to vote for Pompeo so his vote would no longer torpedo the nomination.

    There would be no headline “Rand Paul sinks Trump’s SOS pick”.

    He will wait for a better self promotion opportunity to put himself ahead of the country.

  12. jason says:

    Also, his reasons for caving are hilarious.

    He says Pompeo has “changed his mind on the Iraq War”.

    “In the last-minute tweet, Sen. Paul, a Kentucky Republican who had previously vehemently opposed Pompeo’s nomination, said he had spoken directly with President Trump and believed Pompeo, like Trump, now believed the Iraq War to be a mistake.”

    LOL. Trump told him “Pompeo is now against the Iraq war” and Pompeo is now fit for SOS?

  13. dblaikie says:

    Jason, I agree. If anyone believes Rand Paul is a person to trusted, then I have a swamp to sell them in Arizona.

    -Disagree with Paul about the Iraq War being a mistake. The problem with the war was how the political leaders carried it out, same as in Vietnam.

    I do agree with Paul on this, VERY SCARY AND UN-AMERICAN statement (sarcasm) “Paul said he also spoke to the president today about ending mass surveillance: “I haven’t been given anything, promised anything. I don’t get a bridge built somewhere, but I have asked that we consider the liberty of the individual in the Constitution, and I have been assured by the president that there will be a discussion… of things the administration can do to have Fourth Amendment protections for Americans.”

  20. NYCmike says:

    Jason must be for the government collecting ALL communications……..or does he agree with Senator Paul that mass surveillance should end?

  21. Tgca says:

    Good meeting and optics so far for US and France. You can really see the camaraderie between Trump and Macron do this could lead to good relations. Trump even brushed off dandruff from Macron’s jacket. That’s a sign of real bromance.

  22. Tgca says:

    Just for the record, I would dust of dandruff from Bitter’s cardigan sweater and Jason’s overalls. That’s what bros do for each other.

  23. dblaikie says:

    14 I feel the same about polls.

  24. Wes says:

    The Iraq War was definitely a mistake. We should never have gone, but once we were there, GWB just needed to show a modicum of competence anc intelligence. He couldn’t even do

  25. Wes says:

    that, so Americans got fed up and voted for Obama to get us out.

    Maybe GWB should have read The Art of War before failing in Iraq.

  26. Messy57 says:

    Hogan is a RINO. Which is good for Maryland.

  27. NYCmike says:

    “Which is good for Maryland.”

    -Finally, a statement with common sense behind it!

  28. Messy57 says:

    15. What about Woodrow Wilson, Bob Minor or Charlie Edison? What about General George McClellen, victor of Antietum?

    26. Iraq wasn’t a mistake, it was bungled at the start of the occupation.

    Bush’s father, whom every one loves, caused the death of over a hundred thousand people who rose up after we ASKED THEM TO. and then he let Saddam KILL THEM! I know, he’s dying and his wife died and all, but he’s the one who’s screw-up caused pretty much everything bad that’s happened in the Middle East in the last quarter century.

  29. NYCmike says:

    “Bush’s father, whom every one loves,”

    -Your reading comprehension for statements on this blog needs work!

  30. Messy57 says:

    31. Well, the MSM certainly does…..

  31. Redmen4ever says:

    update on Paraguay:

    The Colorado Party (curious name for a right-wing party) maintains it majority in the lower house, and continues to be the largest single party in the upper house. With the other center-right parties, it would still be a seat or two short of a majority.

    A new party, Hagamos (“let’s do it”), similar to Pudamos (“Yes, we can”) in Spain, would seem to be in a good position to press for special-interest type concessions in return for support.

    The problem with these parties is that, while they say they’re off the left-right political spectrum, their leadership is hardcore left. So, I call them watermelons: green on the outside, red on the inside.

  32. Redmen4ever says:

    Trump’s 2013 trip to Russia

    According to Bloomberg’s original time line, his plane departed Asheville at 9:15 pm on Thursday and arrrived in Moscow at 6:15 am on Friday, thus supporting the Hillary Clinton/James Comey/Russian anti-Trump dossier. Trump stayed overnight in Moscow!!! Ipso facto, he got into a peeing contest with Russian hookers.

    Then, some really smart person over there at Bloomberg, or maybe a reader, figured out that 9:15 pm in Asheville IS 6:15 am the next day in Moscow.

    Here’s the timeline:

    The earliest Trump could have arrived in Moscow was during the wee hours of Saturday. If his plane laid-over at LaGuardia for a couple hours or so, he would have arrived in Moscow during the morning, just like he recollects. Then, there was a day full of events an evening with the Miss Universe pageant, then an after-party, then back to the airport.

    Bloomberg = fake news

    When will Facebook ban them?

    The Iraq war was a mistake.

    That is why Jeb was not the nominee and one of the reasons why her Thighness lost.

  35. Tina says:

    One good thing with trump, is that we are no longer blamed for that war.

  36. Tina says:

    And it cost us multiple elections, 2008 and 2012.

  44. Tgca says:

    Messy

    Finally, something we can agree on.

    Bush Sr early pullout did result in horrible ramification actions for many left behind in Iraq. I recall reading horrible stories, and one incident in particular stuck with me where the Iraqi Elite Guard supposedly dismembered one lady and delivered her body parts to her family, and they had to accept the bagged body parts or else. The regime was extremely cruel, vicious and vindictive towards their enemies.

    However, I blame this mostly on Colin Powell who provided poor strategic advice at the time. He was not committed to finishing what was started, hence, Iraq War II a decade later. I recall reading some wanted to finish the job with Sadaam but Powell was against it and carried great weight because he was so highly regarded. That and his subsequent role in Iraq War II made it clear he was not as competent or strategically gifted as many thought.

    Always makes me wonder if we would have had a better outcome if Sadaam was removed in 1991 or if we would have ended up in the same place regardless.

  45. DW says:

    43 – that brings up an interesting question…should I run for Virginia Beach Mayor?

    Without a doubt I would be considered a deadender candidate out to send a message. My opponent could probably find stuff I have said about the last two mayors we had that wasn’t very complementary.

    I would run on a platform of fiscal responsibility, where I would drastically cut the HUGE property tax burden suffered by home-owners, and of course spending would have to be greatly cut.

    I would also advocate taxpayers would be exempt from the school tax if they are paying to put their kids in better schools.

    I would rip the budget to shreds cutting out so much waste it would make council member’s heads spin. Then I would increase spending on critical infrastructure lapses like key roads in the city that woefully maintained and out of date.

    I would also make sure to put whatever nails are necessary in the coffin of light rail to make sure it doesn’t come back from the dead during my tenure.

    I would set out make relations with neighboring Norfolk worse than they are now, so there would be clear distinction between the two neighboring cities. VA Beach would be known as the conservative city, while Norfolk I would mockingly call ‘The Peoples Republic of Norfolk’ and refer to it as a Banana Republic dooming its citizens to generations of hardship.

    It would be a doomed candidacy, but that there it.

  46. DW says:

    “but that there it.”

  52. Tgca says:

    So according to a Drudge linked article, Bernie is proposing a Federal job program at $15/hr wages to all willing to work. That’s $600 weekly or $31,200 annually assuming a 40-hour work week and excluding overtime.

    So I’m going to do some simple math to get an estimate of the cost of these Federal jobs.

    I’ll start with 2010 census data (yeah, I know it’s a bit dated but remember this is a rough estimated analysis so chill out and don’t sweat the gory details).

    Total Americans (2010) = 310M
    Under 18 and over age 65 (2010) = 124M
    Eligible to work full-time (2010) = 186M
    Working folks (2017) = 126M
    Non-working lazy bums (2017/2010 hybrid) = 60M
    Factor out wealthy, stay at homes, disabled 10M assumed
    Eligible to work in Sanders Federal work program = 50M

    Annual cost of Sanders program for full-time workers =

    50M x $31.2K = 1.56T
    Assume benefits equal approx another 40% of annual salary = $625B

    Total increase in Federal cash outlays to cover Bernie’s plan is only $2.2T annually before other savings offset. This is only about 55% of the current annual $4T budget.

    I am certain that all these folks now working for $15/hr will increase the tax base to cover the nearly $2.2Tin extra Federal budget needs.

    But don’t fret! The good news is that of 50M eligible lazy bums, probably only 5Mor 10% will take the $15/hr Federal jobs so that the realistic cost increase before factoring out other related savings is only $220B annually adding only 5% to the annual $4T budget.

    Of course, a more detailed analysis would consider additional part-time employment, welfare and unemployment reductions, disposable income impacts on the tax base, wealth growth impact on the economy, etc.

    Isn’t that AWESOME!!!

    Go Bernie!

    Bernie 2020!
    Bernie 2024!

    Carlsberg brewery workers strike in Denmark after bosses tell staff they can only drink at lunchtime

    For lunchtime only: Carlsberg brewery workers have gone on strike
    Hundreds of Carlsberg workers have gone on strike for a second day after a ‘beer ban’ was imposed by bosses.
    Up to 800 employees walked out of the firm’s Copenhagen factory in protest over its decision to allow drinking only at lunchtime.
    Jens Bekke, a spokesman for Carlsberg, the world’s fourth-biggest brewer, said: ‘There has been free beer, water and soft drinks everywhere. Yesterday, beers were removed from all refrigerators.
    ‘The only place that you can get a beer in future is in the canteen, at lunch.’
    He said drivers and warehouse workers were particularly upset because they have lost the right to drink three beers a day outside lunch hours.
    ‘Because of that, other staff are striking in sympathy,’ he added.
    As many as 800 are believed to have walked out on Wednesday, with 250 absent from work yesterday.
    The Confederation of Danish Industry and trade union 3F had agreed to look into the dispute.
    Shipments of Carlsberg from Copenhagen have been suspended, with delays expected across the rest of Denmark.
    However, Mr Bekke said that the financial effect of the walkout is expected to be minor.
    He added that the company’s trucks have been fitted with alcohol locks so that drivers would not be able to drink too much and drive

    Must be tough making it through life that misinformed.

    “Do you sweat like a pig? Chances are you don’t, especially if you can wring out your shirt at the end of a hot day. Contrary to popular belief, pigs are unable to sweat; instead, they wallow in mud to cool down. Their mucky appearance gives pigs an undeserved reputation for slovenliness. In fact, pigs are some of the cleanest animals around, refusing to excrete anywhere near their living or eating areas when given a choice.”

    Former Republican Congressman David Jolly said tonight House Republicans fear they will lose between 40 and 60 seats. Jolly is considering running on a bipartisan ticket in Florida with Patrick Murphy so take his comments with a grain of salt.

    As pessimistic as I am, even I don’t see a 60 seat loss right now. Of course, if the bottom falls out of Trump’s polling, anything’s possible. However, I don’t expect the bottom to fall out of Trump’s polling unless the election results are a disaster.

    With a little more than six months to go, my projection of a 40 seat House loss remains. As for the Senate, I think it’s 50-50 in the Senate. Right now, I think Republicans lose AZ and NV, but pickup ND. If Trump’s polling tanks, maybe Republicans lose TN, but I doubt that.

    Ivana Trump, Donald’s first wife, said the other day he should not run for president again in 2020. She claims to speak with Trump about once a month.

    It would be great for everyone involved if Trump chose not to run in 2020. If nothing else, it might head off any impeachment effort Democrats will launch if/when they win the House.

    However, I see very little chance Trump doesn’t run. It goes against everything for which he stands. If he’s a fighter, how would quitting match that view?

    That leaves a primary challenge as the only way to end this mess. It would only have a chance, though, if Trump’s approval with the party goes down after a bad election 2018 showing.

    For a primary challenge to work, two things would have to happen. First, there could only be one top-tier, high profile challenger. Maybe Romney or Haley. Second, any effort would have to be a broad based one that includes all wings of the party. If it’s just a challenge from the conservative wing, it will never work.

    All that said, I doubt any primary challenge, however wounded Trump is, would succeed.

    The Iraq war was a success. Mission accomplished by getting rid of Saddam.

    Wes can try to rewrite history all he wants. Doesn’t work.

    And of course, it was the right thing to do.

    Luckily we had a real commander in chief who took his responsibility seriously.

    This post is so full of flagrant falsehoods I’m having a hard time deciding where I should begin.

    1) Americans voted decisively for Obama to get us out of Iraq. Mission accomplished in that regard.

    2) Saddam fell, and terrorists slaughtered thousands for nearly five years while Bush did absolutely nothing until the last year of his presidency. I guess if you have a fetish for seeing terrorists killing people, then Bush did accomplish his mission.

    3) Somehow I rewrote history by refusing to carry water for failure. Good one there, Jason.

    4) It was the right thing to do so much Bush had to lie about nonexistent weapons to get us over there and let ISIS run rampant for years.

    5) Finally Bush took his responsibility so seriously Republicans got their asses handed to them in 2006 and 2008 because of his failure and elected Obama to end the war.

    Bush did a hell of a job in Iraq, Jason. That’s why we left Iraq in 2011. It was run so absolutely perfectly Americans overwhelmingly voted for Democrats to end the war.

    I love how the GWB sycophants like to rewrite history on this colossal failure.

    113 Sorry, the only colossal failure was George Bush’s failure to defend the actions of his administration. The only thing worse was Obama pulling out of Iraq leaving a huge vacuum with our departure. His colossal failure abrogated all the American blood that was shed to bring stability to that troubled region of the world. And by the way I am not a GWB sycophant. His refusal to defend his presidency and the people who labored for him still boils my blood.

    2008:

    Obama promised to get us out of Iraq.

    McCain promised to double fown on Iraq.

    Final election tally: Obama-69.5 million popular votes; 28 states plus NE-2; 53% of the popular vote; 363 electoral votes.

    McCain-60 million popular votes; 22 states minus NE-2; 46% of the popular vote; 172 electoral votes.

    No. Iraq cost us no elections, nor did GWB’s 29% approval on Election Day, did it, Jason?

  122. Wes says:

    So those 500,000 people killed by militants because Bush spent years doing nothing while terrorists ran rampant weren’t a failure on GWB’s par, Db?

    It scares me you think that.

  123. Wes says:

    Powell did what GWB told him to do, Tg.

    Harry Truman said it best:

    The buck stops here (meaning at the President).

    It doesn’t stop at Powell or Rumsfeld or Cheney or anyone else than GWB. He was Commander-in-Chief. He failed at his job. He was too incompetent to be President and had no business in the White House.

  124. jason says:

    Wes is “concerned” about his bogus “killed by militants” numbers but says nothing about the million people killed by the wars Saddam started in Iran and Kuwait, and the hundreds of thousands of his own people he murdered, including with WMD.

    You just got to love the hypocrisy.

  125. jason says:

    Wes is also not “concerned” Saddam lobbed SCUD missiles into populated areas of Israel and Saudi Arabia for the express purpose of killing civilians, caused the biggest environmental disaster of all time by setting 700 oil wells on fire, funded the families of suicide bombers in Israel, and diverted billions of dollars of the oil for food program to weapons and palaces while starving his own people.

    Wes is “selective” in his concerns….

  126. Wes says:

    Jason calls the deaths by terrorists in Iraq “bogus.”

    That would be hilarious were it not so pathetic.

    Maybe you didn’t notice, Jason, but the US beat Saddam in 1991. He had started no new wars and had no record using WMDs on anyone since that time.

    Jason’s like the Wizard of Oz:

    Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!

  127. jason says:

    Wes should thank his lucky stars GWB was President for both the Iraq War and 9/11.

    Unfortunately, his terminal BDS clouds his judgment.

  128. Wes says:

    Jason’s a liar because that had happened 12 years before 2003. Maybe we should focus on what was happening in Iraq when Bush lied to get his invasion rather than things Saddam did when GHWB was in office.

    You know, 2003 might be a little more contemporary to the GWB Administration than 1991.

  131. jason says:

    and had no record using WMDs on anyone since that time.”

    Sorry. Not good enough.

    As Bush correctly said, “trusting in the sanity of Saddam Hussein is not an option”.

    The consensus among all western leaders, including Democrats in the US, was that Saddam still had WMD, and the fact is HE WANTED the world to think he had them.

    So he had to be taken out.

    There was no alternative. Even Kerry, Hillary, Clinton, and Ted Kennedy understood that.

    Too bad you don’t understand it.

    Soy-free
    Gluten-free
    No GMOs

    It’s pea protein based so for you bodybuilding enthusiasts, it’s an excellent source of balanced protein and fat at 20g each per burger and only 5g of carbs for a total of 270 cal. It’s a bit high in salt at 380mg but that’s no worse then most prepared dishes, and an excellent source of potassium too.

    …and it has the texture and consistency of actual burger do you grill both sides for a crispy touch.

    Winning AZ8 by just 6 points is nothing short of a disaster. This is a ruby red district where the RNC spent 7 figures to help the candidate. Republicans should have been able to nominate a person who spent the entire campaign playing golf and still win by 20 or more points.

    I’m not sure how many more horrific underperformances the Trump University graduates at HHR need to see before they finally figure out there is a terrible reckoning coming, but my guess is you’ll figure it out the day after the election when the Republican Party is a smoking ash heap.

    Huge underperformance by Republican so far in early vote.

    – Outside of the special election for Jason Chaffetz’s seat, Republicans have drastically underperformed in every special election.

    The question going to forward will be is will this be the case on election day or will the party become more engaged once the campaign season gets going in September and October.

    If party voters don’t become engaged and this trend carries over to election day, my prediction of a 40 seat loss may be too optimistic.

    – Sure they do. This forum almost always gives Trump the benefit of the doubt. Why? Because he confounded expectations in 2016 so many believe he must have broken the code and he’ll do it again. It’s why so many here cling to Rasmussen polls because they believe it is the true reflection of the country since it’s more positive for Trump than others.

    When I was sounding the alarm bells last April that Trump’s approval rating signaled the House would be in danger, I wasn’t just mocked. I was attacked. And when I suggested a 40 seat loss was in the offing last October and then especially after the miserable Virginia elections, I was attacked again. The usual suspects just said “you were wrong in 2016 so you’ll be wrong again”.

    A good portion of this forum has chosen to ignore what is staring them in the face and much of it is due to their belief Trump knows what he’s doing.

    – Unless there is a blatant crime found or the Republican party simply gives up on Trump, I no longer think it is a given Democrats will impeach Trump. Why? If they force Trump out, they get Pence. And Pence would make the presidency boring again and probably govern with an approval rating much closer to 50%, if not over it.

    Pence with a year and a half at the helm would probably be hard to beat. Even Carter struggled to beat Ford. This is one reason why I was hopeful Trump might get tossed now. Six months of Pence may well have been enough to change the momentum of 2018.

    – The Trump University valedictorian is here to use his circular logic degree to us winning a ruby red district by just 6 is awesome.

    In 2014 or even 2012, the same candidate would have won by 20 points or more. Romney won this district by 25 points. The only difference is the toxic Trump presidency that has energized Democrats in a way not seen since 2006 and 2008.

  203. Phil says:

    If Trump is unpopular going into 2020, Dems won’t impeach. They actually would prefer he be in the WH. Besides, they would never get 67 votes in the senate for conviction and removal. They know that.

  204. Tina says:

    How w did Quittens do in Utah?m

  205. Robbie says:

    The early vote by registration was 49% Republican, 28% Democrat, and 23% Independent.

    As we saw in 2010 and 2014, Independents were the majority makers. In AZ8, they went for the Democrat in what appears to be a strong way.

    – You’re right Democrats would prefer to run against a widely unpopular Trump, but do not rule out the possibility there could be 67 votes to remove Trump.

    If Republicans head into the 2020 process with Trump as a widely unpopular president and the certain knowledge he’s a lead weight around their necks, they might just decided to act in their own best interests and throw him out. After all, that’s what politicians do.

    Is it likely? Nope. That said, Alex Castellanos, who supported Trump and ran a super pac for him, made this very case on ABC a few weeks ago.

    And by the way, Trump going on wild tweet rants about this conspiracy and that conspiracy aren’t going to help him convince Independents Republicans deserve their votes.

    All he needs to do is tone down his act. He won’t, but a more restrained attitude and an emphasis on the economy would help a lot.

    Trump is governed by grievance though so every day is Festivus for him.

    Trump’s a clown who is wrecking the Republican Party. Of course, I forgot you left the party because you hated him, yet you still demand those of us who stayed in the party support the mad king’s every whim.

    If dipstick Don did nothing but play gold every single day and never talk, he’d have an approval rating over 50% with the economy we have right now.

    Trump University graduates like you don’t realize how hard a president has to work to have an approval rating this low with an economy this good.

    Ok. Time for someone like myself who is always right on all elections to way in here. No applause please. It offends my humble sensibilities. TYVM.

    I lived in AZ so I think I can speak a little about politics there. True AZ 8 is conservative district but the fact that the current CongressCritter resigned due to a scandal has a significant impact as well on the district election, as is usually the case in most districts, unless it’s absurdly lopsided like 80-20.

    Usually, that’s just the way it goes for district elections after a major scandal whether it’s GOP or Dem. The district can flip temporarily.

    Remember, Foley had a very safe GOP FL district but after he resigned for vile behavior with minors, the Dems picked it up but then lost it again in the next election. I believe the same will happen in AL with Sessions seat after the Moore debacle.

    So my view here is that this AZ seat is reliably GOP but hurt more by the behavior of the previous CongressCritter that was forced to resign. I think within a year, this will be forgotten because out of sight, out of mind so that it will be reliably GOP again.

    While following baseball, any fan is often the hardest on his own team and manager. But last night during the Mets-Cardinals game was nice for once to see the other team’s manager make a bonehead decision. The Cards led the Mets 4-1, even though their starting pitcher was very shaky, having gotten out several jams and drawing several line drive outs that were hit right at someone. He was over 50 pitches by the start of the 3rd inning and by the fifth inning the guy was approaching 90 pitches, nursing a 4-1 lead. So he gets a couple of outs to start the 5th inning, but then ran out of gas, walking two Mets batters in a row on 8 straight pitches. This brought up Yoenis Cespedes. The Cardinals’ manager wanted to see the starter qualify for the win, and foolishly left him in the game. He got behind Cespedes in the count, and desperate for a strike floated one right down the middle and Cespedes hit it so far the camera struggled to locate it beyond the left field upper deck. Tie game, Mets went on to win.

    Cardinals fans must have been screaming for the manager to come out with the hook after those two walks.

    New numbers from the West Virginia Secretary of State’s Office show a downward trend in Democratic registrations continues with 524,964 of residents voters registered now as Democrats, down from 577,977 in 2016 and 613,518 in 2014.

    In four years, the total decline in Democratic voters totaled 14 percent, the office reported.

    Just under 43 percent of all registered voters in West Virginia are registered Democrats compared with 32 percent for Republicans, a number that has been steadily rising.

    In total, 392,804 voters are registered as Republicans for the May primary, an increase of close to 18,000 voters from two years ago and 40,000 over GOP registrations in 2014.”

    National Guard Maj. Tom Willis sits at 4 percent, followed by former coal miner Bo Copley at 2 percent and U.S. Navy veteran Jack Newbrough at 1 percent. Seven percent of respondents say they do not favor any of the six candidates, and 24 percent say they are undecided.

    The poll was conducted by Anderson Robbinson Research and Shaw & Company Research.

    “Jenkins and Morrisey went after each other in the hour-long debate–taking part in several heated exchanges following questions from Irr and co-moderator Amanda Barren.

    Morrisey said Jenkins voted for a cap and trade bill while a member of the state Senate. Jenkins shot back that Morrisey wasn’t telling the truth.

    “Patrick Morrisey is simply lying,” Jenkins said.

    “That’s not true,” Morrisey interrupted. “I can prove it, unlike you Evan.”

    In another exchange Jenkins criticized Morrisey for his “New Jersey values.”

    “Patrick you grew up in New York and New Jersey. You ran for Congress from New Jersey on your New Jersey values. You’ve lobbied in Washington for over a decade for the drug industry. You don’t know anything about coal. I guess you’re good at filing lawsuits,” Jenkins said.

    Morrisey said there’s a clear difference between himself and Jenkins.

    “I’m the proven conservative in this race. Evan Jenkins has a long deep record of being liberal on many causes and I think that’s why he’s hurting right now in the polls,” Morrisey said.”

    Hey, are there two Jasons, Robbie? You keep setting him up as some type of Trump stooge. The Jason I know didn’t vote for Trump in the primary or the general and has been all over him for his tariff policies. Hardly a Trumper.

    – Correct. That’s why I call him Jason fraud. He tough talked Trump all the way through the election and even left the party because of him. Yet because he won, now Jason says we must support Trump. Why? Because he won with a R next to his name. That is the very essence of fraudulence.

    “Judge Michael Mukasey said he still has not seen definitive evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in 2016 or that President Trump committed obstruction of justice.

    The former U.S. attorney general argued that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation is at the same place today as it was when Mueller took over the ongoing probe in May 2017.

    “We know that the Russians hacked. They hacked the Democrats, they hacked one of their functionaries. They did that [and] a bunch of Russians have been indicted for doing that,” Mukasey said on “America’s Newsroom.” “But there’s been no connection made between that and any activity by the Trump campaign.”

    That normally works so well for Republicans….

    – Trumpism has really turned you into a moron.

    The press means nothing you fraud. If they meant anything, Trump never would have won. Had he spent the last 15 months ignoring them and just focused every single public comment and tweet on the economy, his approval would be well above 50% and Republicans wouldn’t be about to do the impossible of losing both the House and Senate.

    Because you’re a clownish fraud, you’ve stupidly bought into the ridiculous idea that Trump carrying out a petty Festivus fight with the press is a good idea. You’re putting your Trump University degree to good use I guess. Did you celebrate your valedictorian status by drinking Trump wine and eating Trump steaks?

    I left the party because the party no longer stands for the principles that attracted me to it.

Did the media force Trump to have a 10 month affair with Playboy playmate Karen McDougal in 2006? Did the media force Trump to have sex with another playmate in front of another woman while married to Marla Maples in the 1990’s?

    Did the media force Trump to fire Comey and then tell Lester Holt he fired him because of the Russia investigation? Did the media force Trump to tell the Russian ambassador and foreign minister in the Oval Office that Comey was a real nutjob and firing him relieved a great pressure on him?

    Did the media force Trump to hire Mike Flynn. Did the media force Trump to hire Paul Manafort whose corruption was long known in Republican circles? Did the media force Don Jr. to take a meeting with Russian operatives claiming to have dirt on Clinton and then email “If it’s what’s you say, I love it”?

    Did the media force Trump to hire Michael Cohen as his personal fixer? Did the media force Trump to have Michael Cohen use NDA’s to silence the myriad of women with whom he had sexual relationships? Did the media force Trump and Cohen to stupidly sue Stormy Daniels when her story was already out and few seemed to care?

    I ask these questions because each instance was a self inflicted wound by Trump. These aren’t made up stories by the press. They are actions Trump took that are coming back to haunt him BIGLY.

    Both are moot now. I have to judge on his Presidency and what it means for the country.

    There is no purpose to being “NeverTrump” now unless you want the Dems to prevail, which you do.

    Trump is President. He is not a Republican. He is not a conservative. But he is in the position to do a lot of things I support that Hillary would NEVER have done.

    So I think its reasonable for me to support him where I think he deserves support and oppose him where I think he is wrong.

  349. Michael says:

    To save the CA GOP’s House Seats we need someone in the Senate/Governor race to make it to the top-two and give Republicans a reason to turnout.

    Thankfully in the Senate race no one is really polling the GOP in the race until now. De Leon has work to make up. If the GOP is in the top-two for both races it’ll probably save CA-48 (if it isn’t two Republicans) and CA-45.

    Newsom (D): 21%
    Villaraigosa (D): 18%

  350. Michael says:

    360 After reading about Little I suddenly don’t like him at all.

  351. Chicon says:

    Michael, it would be nice if 1 or 2 of the CA governor candidates dropped out.

  352. Michael says:

    363 Yes it is good news. It means that Democrats have a decision to make. Spend more money trying to beat Heller and winning AZ/TN or defend their seats that are suddenly becoming more competitive.

  353. Michael says:

    Patrick Little is a racist and I won’t get anywhere near that. It’s actually sad that SurveyUSA only polled him and Rocky De La Fuente as the only R candidates

  354. Waingro says:

    #364, it’s generally not good that Heller, an incumbent, is only at 40%, but I fully expected him to be down and losing this race. So it’s mostly positive for me

  355. Michael says:

    Overall:

    Trump: 39/54 (-5)
    GCB: D+8 (-5)

    Trump on North Korea now 52/42, one of the few major highlights.

  359. NYCmike says:

    Ok, late to the party here……just 1 question:

    Did Robbie really post early exit polls for the election last night?

  360. NYCmike says:

    Michael says:
    April 25, 2018 at 1:36 pm

    363 Yes it is good news. It means that Democrats have a decision to make. Spend more money trying to beat Heller and winning AZ/TN or defend their seats that are suddenly becoming more competitive.

    -Maybe Robbie will read this astute observation by Mr. Salmon……in November, there will be over 450 races happening…..not 1 each night, like in these special elections.

    YUGE difference!

  361. NYCmike says:

    I do fear a loss of the HOUSE, BUT MAINLY due to the fact that even President’s who are popular in the mainstream media/Robbie’s eyes have lost more than 30 seats before.

    This election will NOT be lost because of Trump. Each individual in each contest must win his voters locally.

    The leadership in Congress should try making it easier for their fellow party members by having Congress take votes on issues which are popularly supported…….kind of like the bill to make the tax cut permanent, as proposed by Senator Ted Cruz.

  362. NYCmike says:

    I do like it when Robbie swings by…..his My Attorney Got Arrested bit was so original!

  363. NYCmike says:

    ” You think I want Republicans to lose?”

    -Yes.

    Next question.

  364. Bitterlaw says:

    I think House seats in PA will b lost because of Trump – sort of. The redistributing changed the party ID in districts AND the Dems shifted into those new districts are fired up to vote because of Trump.

  365. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    360. “To save the CA GOP’s House Seats we need someone in the Senate/Governor race to make it to the top-two and give Republicans a reason to turnout.”

    Have to respectfully disagree. Running no-name Republicans for California state offices that everyone knows the Democrat will win is not going to increase turn-out. Plus California is so huge there is not a major connection to state politics. It is a cesspool that Republicans know they cannot change.

    National issues will predominate in congressional races, as well as the strength of the candidates.

    Although I do not live in the 49th congressional district, am getting almost daily E-mails from the Gaspar campaign for congress. She has strong backing in San Diego County. Another Republican, Harkey, has her base of support in Orange County. It is possible both could make the run-off.

    For Republicans to win in the 50th congressional district, the key is not to have a candidate named Duncan Hunter. Bill Wells, the Mayor of El Cajon, is a good replacement.

  366. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The expectation is that the governor’s race in California will be a run-off between Newsom and Villaraigosa.

    Newsom is a far leftist, and is campaigning as such. Villaraigosa is campaigning as the moderate in the race, and is reaching out to Republicans. It is possible there could be a higher Republican turn-out to stop Newsom, since Villaraigosa has the possibility of winning.

    Ok, I agreed with him, but these things happen.

    I am not distressed about it, I will get over it, I am cool about it, I am not going to dwell on it.

  376. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Looks like a gas tax repeal vote will happen in California. Petitions with about 900,000 signatures are about to be turned in:

    “Republican activists said Tuesday that they have collected at least 830,000 signatures for an initiative to repeal recent increases in California’s gas tax and vehicle fees, more than enough to qualify the measure for the November ballot.

    The activists need 585,407 signatures of registered voters to qualify the ballot measure.

    Because signatures are still being processed and counted by the campaign, backers hope to have 900,000 by the time they begin turning them in to the counties on Friday, according to Carl DeMaio, a former San Diego City Council member and organizer of the drive.

    “The breadth and depth of voter anger over the car and gas tax hikes is just amazing,” said DeMaio, who hosts a radio talk show. “We are seeing Democrats, independents and Republicans sign the petition and volunteering to carry the petition, people from all walks of life.”

  377. Tgca says:

    SanDiego

    I think the US got to the openly accepting low standards due to Clinton’s behavior while in office. What people did in their personal life used to be somewhat private or confidential, and that’s was ok but clearly no one can argue with a straight face that Trump’s personal life is any less moral than numerous other presidents. Approximately 40% of US presidents have behaved immorally by virtue of affairs, children out of wedlock, slave ownership, etc so don’t buy into the MSM trying to pin long practiced immoral behavior on Trump.

    With Clinton, it was different because he got caught at work doing something most people would be fired for doing. So I disagree that Trump lowered the bar, the bar has been low for quite some time. It’s just that it was not widely reported.

  378. jason says:

    Btw, I have heard from Soccer Moron, he sent me a telegram. His parents cut off his Internet so he is now got 3 paper routes to see if he can pay for it himself. He hopes to back here soon.

    Nuisance did this while he was the mayor.

    Jebot

  381. jason says:

    see that Robbie hasn’t recovered from 2016 yet.”

    Pathetic loser. Poor bastard has not had ONE original thought in all the years he has been here. Even his support for Jeb was not original. The MSM had picked Jeb early on as their “acceptable” GOP candidate because of his immigration and other views they thought Rs “should have” so that is why Wobbie went with him. Jeb was, according to the MSM, “the adult in the room”. Of course when Trump showed up they thought he would be even easier to beat than Jeb so they dropped poor ol’ Jeb like a hot potato.

  382. jason says:

    I would argue that both Bill and Hillary have been shown to be on a lower moral scale than Trump. Trump might be a blowhard, but when you really want to get into sexual predator behavior and corruption you can’t beat Bill and Hill. Trump U is like amateur hour compared to the Clinton Foundation.

  383. janz says:

    SanDiego, another CA initiative, that has gathered more than enough signatures to qualify for the 2018 ballot, is a state-wide rent control initiate, which would effect home& condos.

    What a fool believes

    with apologies to Michael McDonald

    He (Trump) came from nowhere back in her (Hillary) long ago
    The sentimental fool don’t see
    Tryin’ hard to recreate
    What had yet to be created once in her life
    She musters a smile
    For her nostalgic tale
    Never coming near to the truth of that year
    Only to realize
    It never really was

    She had a place in history
    How he beat her is a mystery

    As she rises to her apology
    Anybody else would surely know
    We’re watching her go (as in go crazy)
    But what a fool believes she sees
    No wise man has the power to reason away
    What seems to be
    Is always better than nothing
    And nothing at all keeps sending her

    Somewhere back in her long ago
    Where she can still believe
    She really won two-sixteen
    Someday, somewhere, she will return
    To that place where she should have been
    She even made them count twice

    As she rises to her apology
    Anybody else would surely know
    We’re watching her go (crazy)
    But what a fool believes she sees
    No wise man has the power to reason away
    What seems to be
    Is always better than nothing
    There’s nothing at all
    But what a fool believes she sees

  387. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    395. Rent control is allowed in some California cities already; but it was limited by a state law the initiative seeks to repeal:

    “The AHA is an initiative to repeal the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act of 1995 in order to give cities in California more power to set rent control as they see fit. Proponents say Costa-Hawkins contains loopholes that have allowed corporate landlords to raise rent prices, contributing to gentrification and the displacement of working class families.

    Specifically, the act proposes:

    a) To restore authority to California’s cities and counties to develop and implement local policies that ensure renters are able to find and afford decent housing in their jurisdictions

    b) To improve the quality of life for millions of California renters and reduce the number of Californians who face critical housing challenges and homelessness

    c) To repeal the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act.

    What is Costa-Hawkins, anyway?
    Costa-Hawkins is a state law that limits how cities set rent control in two major ways. First, it prohibits cities from putting a rent cap on single-family homes or apartments built after February 1995. Second, it gives landlords the right to raise rent prices when a tenant moves out, otherwise known as vacancy control.

    The law — named after state senator Jim Costa, a Democrat, and assemblyman Phil Hawkins, a Republican — was adopted in 1995 to counter vacancy control ordinances and spur new construction of single-family homes.

    Costa-Hawkins does not outlaw rent control whatsoever. In fact, cities such as Los Angeles and San Francisco have some form of rent control but within the parameters of the state law.”

  388. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The development industry and construction worker unions are powerful in the California Democratic Party, so it would not surprise me if the Democrats come out against the rent control measure should it qualify.

    Rent control has been a disaster for cities like San Francisco. Even a lot of liberals admit it.

    VERY JEALOUS! They are real nice places, in great locations.

    Details, details.

    Can we get back to serious business like Mika’s face, Stormy and Melania’s hat?

    Enough with meaningless trivia.

    This used to be a serious blog. Remember when I brought up that Romney had not one, but 2 Caddies. That his wife owned not a golden retriever, but an actual horse? That they had one of those mechanisms to elevate people inside structures, an elevator? That Romney’s dog once rode outside the car?

    This is the kind of contribution I make here, after hours of researching every left wing news source available. It takes work, folks.

    So if you are tempted to post meaningless drivel like the unemployment numbers, remember, you CAN DO BETTER.

    I have some of the secret memos Bitter wrote when he was Governor at HHR. If I send the information they contain to my pardner NYC and he divulges them here, I am not leaking, I am communicating the substance of the memos through a friend.

    WV – We have a chance to knock off the blue fraud providing Republicans aren’t stupid enough to nominate the dead ender who almost makes Roy Moore look like a super star candidate. The fun will be wartching Manchin pretend he’s not the reliable vote Schumer can count on whenever he’s needed.

    ND and Mo? Depends on whether or not the voters are again stupid enough to believe Heidi and McCaskill are moderates. If the voters are then they deserve what they get.

    Nevada and Arizona? I think we split with Heller the likely survivor. McSally give Republicans a one in 3 chance in Arizona. Kelli Ward is a dead woman walking.

    Texas? O’Rourke turns Texas blue. His openly campaigning for impeachment of Trump, strong gun control, and open borders will be too much for Cruz and Democrats pick up a big one. I read it in the Washington Post Post.

    “Gallup’s Surprise: Trump ‘Very Well Positioned’ to Win Second Term”

    The article discusses how Trump is in good company with other re-elected leaders based on his numbers.

    But wait! I don’t get this. We’ve been told by GOP prognosticators that Trump is a complete disaster and killing the GOP and will set the party back years, maybe for ever, so they never can recover.

    Can someone help me understand please. I know I’m just a quiet, reserved, handsome, sweet, kind, caring, lovable, gentle, compassionate, well-educated, humble guy but I just don’t understand this. I thought after the 80+ house seats and 10 senate seats the Dems will pick up thIs Nov that either Elizabeth Warren or Kamala Harris will just march into the White House in 2020 for the permanent Dem majority brought about by America’s desire for more regulations, higher taxes, increased unemployment, male emasculation, rampant crime, and open borders.

  476. Tim says:

    #491:
    I totally disagree. None of that, if accurate, is good news for the GOP, at all. The Dems don’t even need to win any of those districts to flip the House. Those are almost all districts in which the Republican won by comfortable margins, in 2016.

  477. DW says:

    Well, lets drill down into the data:

    AR-02: Sabato: Likely R; Cook: Lean R
    French Hill (R) 47%
    Clarke Tucker (D) 42%

    FL-16: Sabato: Likely R; Cook: Likely R
    Vern Buchanan (R) 49%
    David Shapiro (D) 37%

    IL-12: Sabato: Tossup; Cook: Tossup
    Mike Bost (R) 44%
    Brendan Kelly (D) 39%

    IL-13: Sabato: Likely R; Cook: Likely R
    Rodney Davis (R) 45%
    Betsy Londrigan (D) 42%

    IL-14: Sabato: Likely R; Cook: Lean R
    Randy Hultgren (R) 45%
    Lauren Underwood (D) 41%

    MI-08: Sabato: Lean R; Cook: Lean R
    Mike Bishop (R) 46%
    Elissa Slotkin (D) 41%

    NC-09: Sabato: Lean R; Cook: Lean R
    Robert Pittenger (R) 42%
    Dan McCready (D) 37%

    NC-13: Sabato: Lean R; Cook: Lean R
    Tedd Budd (R) 43%
    Kathy Manning (D) 40%

    NJ-03: Sabato: Likely R; Cook: Lean R
    Tom MacArthur (R) 42%
    Andy Kim (D) 41%

    OH-01: Sabato: Lean R; Cook: Lean R
    Steve Chabot (R) 43%
    Aftab Pureval (D) 42%

    VA-02: Sabato: Lean R; Cook: Lean R
    Scott Taylor (R) 48%
    Elaine Luria (D) 42%

    WA-05: Sabato: Lean R; Cook: Lean R
    Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R) 48%
    Lisa Brown (D) 45%

    So given this is PPP-D with their thumb on the scale for a Dem org for which they did the poll, they couldn’t get a lead in any of these, and in fact they are saying a 5 point GOP lead in IL-12, even though its rated a tossup. Normally when a large collection of polling is done, there are always going to be a couple of surprises in there. But these numbers, given the pollster, do not look to me to be some sort of blue tsunami. The GOP may well lose house control–the PA redistricting theft by the court has seen to that–but as I said, these numbers have to be a little disappointing for the Dems. I didn’t say a LOT disappointing, but a little. Given how high their hopes are for a blue tsunami.

    Sources from Coral Springs, Fla., Police Department tell CNN that when its officers arrived on the scene Wednesday, they were shocked to find three Broward County Sheriff’s deputies behind their cars with weapons drawn.
    The school’s armed resource officer, Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Scot Peterson, was also outside. He resigned on Thursday after his failure to act was publicly revealed.
    The Coral Springs cops entered the building to engage the shooter on their own, before other Broward County deputies arrived, two of whom joined the police inside, the sources said.”

    For the record, when I find any kind of bug in the House, I take it outside…so it can then be eaten by predators.

    In my house in FL, occasionally I would get a tiny gecko or roach (inevitable if you live on the water) sneaking in through the patio entrance and I would remove it kindly and compassionately. Luckily it does not happen often, maybe a few times a year.

    It’s probably hysterical to watch me chase these things around the house and get them to cooperate. It once took me like 30 minutes to catch and remove a gecko one day. He was determined to avoid capture and I was determined to expel him.

I 1st fell in love with them when I was like 5 and had them in a shelter my mom threw us in while she went off and stayed with her boyfriend at his parents place.

The Gazans “Friday Days of Agitation” are minor news’ stories because the USA has not said a word. Most Israelis are more than delighted that the anti-Zionist Obama Administration is history and give high marks to Netanyahu for navigating the relationship with the US during those trying times. That is why the “scandals” regarding Bibi’s acceptance of minor gifts has actually elevated Netanyahu’s popularity and many consider him Israel’s greatest Prime Minister after David Ben Gurion.

    It’s not unprecedented or especially unusual for a judge to order an atty to disclose the source of funds paid to him/her. This often happens, eg., where an atty for a drug dealer enters his appearance, and the govt alleges that the atty is actually being paid by Mr. Big— to keep the def’s mouth shut. In other words, the suspicion is that the atty who has entered really represents someone other than the def, & that the interests of Mr. Big may be adverse to the def.

    Where an atty represents to the court, as the atty apparently did in the article to which you linked, that “persons unknown gave me cash in a paper bag”… judges are especially inclined to be curious as to the source of that cash.

    In this situation, an atty has to be very careful about his duty of candor to the court— if it turns out that the atty has told a big fib to the judge, 1) law license in jeopardy & 2) prison a possibility.

    I know the Trump University graduates will shout “fake news” since this didn’t come from a “safe space” conservative outlet or commentator, but there’s a terrible reckoning coming in November and it’s only getting worse.

    – Yeah, I’m pissed at the state of the Republican Party and the reluctance of many in the party to recognize how dire things are because I’m mad Jeb lost. Honestly, find a better retort than something Trump University valedictorian Jason fraud uses.

    What bothers me is this trainwreck has been apparent for almost a year now and all I’ve heard is “well, you were wrong on 2016 so you’ll be wrong again”, or “that’s not what Rasmussen says”. The fact is a beatdown is coming and most spent all of 2017 saying “it’s too soon, it’s too son”. Well, now it’s too late.

    By the way, still think this is 1970?

  601. Wes says:

    Whether it’s 1970 or not, Robbie, your hope that 2016 was going to be 1936 didn’t materialize. You’ve been eager to see Republicans lose since JEB! crashed and burned and will be thrilled if 2018 is an electoral disaster for them.

  602. Wes says:

    You really should go to RRH, Robbie. You and the other “Republicans” cheerleading for the Dems to have a banner year would like each other.

  603. Robbie says:

    Here’s the big picture for the Trump University graduates.

    If Republicans lose the House and/or the Senate, 2019 is going to be a crap show for Trump and the party. On top of whatever Mueller finds or doesn’t find and whatever the SDNY finds about Cohen and, possibly, Trump, his White House is going to be tied down in a myriad of investigations launched by Democrat controlled committees. And after Republicans likely lose their House majority or both majorities, it’s a good bet portions of the party will start to turn on him. What a great position to be in heading into a presidential year.

    But even if you don’t care about the political ramifications of losing the House and/or the Senate, the policy implications will be huge. First and most importantly, a Senate loss means almost no more judges and an end to any chance of reshaping the Supreme Court. Chuck Schmuer isn’t going to let any Republican nominee make it onto the Supreme Court even if that means three vacancies at once.

    On top of that, the kinds of losses the party is probably going to suffer in 2018 won’t be easily made up in 2020, especially if an unpopular Trump, whether he be impeached or nearly so, is the nominee. And with the Senate map not primed for the taking in 2020, Democrats could have control of Congress and the White House with big majorities in 2020. Then we get the wish list of items Obama couldn’t get. Hello single payer through reconciliation. Hello tax increases. Hello liberal judges.

    This election is very important, but Trump and the MAGA minions don’t seem to care. They’d just rather dine on Trump steaks and Trump wine and trigger the libs with stupid Internet memes.

  604. Robbie says:

    – Does it make you feel better to say I hoped 2016 was 1936? Since you’re not a moron like many who post here, I know you don’t believe that. Still, I guess it’s easier to say that than recognize my warnings from a year ago were sadly on the mark.

    Also, you can spout “Jeb!” like Jason fraud does all you want, but it’s ridiculous. Bush quit the race 26 months ago and the only times I have brought him up since is when I have to bat down these silly assertions that I am rooting for losses because Jeb didn’t win. Jeb ran a crap campaign and didn’t deserve to win. I’ve said that since September 2015 as well.

    Newsflash, Wes. I would have supported any other Republican running other than Trump and Paul and said so hundreds of times. And if any other Republican had won, we would not be facing an epic wipeout because the other Republicans weren’t emotionally unstable and wouldn’t have spent the last 15 months proactively attempting to make 60% or more of the country hate them.

    – Is this the best you have to offer now? That because I’m not telling myself fairy tales about the daunting circumstances facing the party in November or that I’m willing to say so, I’m somehow a fake Republican?

    Unlike like certain people in this forum, I chose to remain a Republican despite the fact a NYC conman fooled the party and won its nomination. Since I was old enough to vote in 1996, I’ve always only voted for Republicans and straight party every time except for 2016 when I skipped over voting for Trump. Something I believe you did as well (not vote for Trump).

  606. Wes says:

    There’s a difference between acknowledging an impending bad election, Robbie, and hoping for one.

    In 2006 and 2008, I was a clear voice warning of whst would happen. I was called “White Flag Wes” among other colorful names and routinely derided. I was right despite Howard Dean’s prediction of 39% as Obama’s ceiling and Rdelbov’s ridiculous “Delbov Curve” analysis.

    In contrast, in 2016, you were declaring Armageddon after JEB! lost the primaries. You were breathlessly posting every DSCC-sponsored poll saying Bayh would crush Young and were even telling us how Bayh wasn’t letting up on Young even after the Republican pulled ahead late in the race.

    Hell, here in NC, you were telling us how Hillary would easily carry this state and help Ross beat Burr. Well, Burr recived an absolute majority of the vote, and Ross couldn’t even hold all the votes won by Hillary, who lost the state.

    You have some kind of weird JEB! fetish and can’t get over his primary loss, that bit of obsession causing you want to see the GOP suffer electorally at every turn till the next Bush can ride in as some kind of white knight to rescue the party.

    2018 may yet be a bad year for the GOP, but whether or not that’s the case, your analysis is based on your desire to see it happen because JEB! is not President, not on some clearheaded analysis leading to an objective conclusiom.

  607. Wes says:

    You are correct. I refused to vote for Trump. Unlike you, I didn’t go into full-blown desire for GOP Gotterdammerung when my preferred candidate for President lost.

    I don’t have a personal beef with you but it’s tiring to hear you whine all the time and not balance your analysis with Trump successes. I think you have some points but you do yourself a disservice when you go overboard with unsubstantiated gloom and doom.

    All your posts about future elections are pure conjecture predicated on your vile bitterness and hatred for Trump. Folks predicted the same in 2016 and were WRONG!

    He has been more successful in his 1st 18 months than any POTUS to date in decades but you skip over that.

    Gallup just positioned him for re-electionto where he is now compared to other presidents at the same point and they won. Not that predictions matter this early, but it’s evidentiary analysis that contradicts your analysis.

    Also, you fail to accept that except for a very few exceptions, average House losses are 30 seats for a presidents party in a midterm. If The GOP loses less than 30 seats than he is in a better place then every POTUS in nearly the last 40 years except GWB who won 8 in 2002 (thanks to 9/11) but then lost 30 in 2006 and GHB who lost 8 in 1990. So you’re already handicapped the result because of history. If the GOP loses less than 30, then he outperforms most predecessors in nearly 100 years.

    Your analysis on the GOP not being able win back in the future has no basis in history either. Clinton lost 52 seats and Dems won back the House in 2006. Obama lost a total of 76 but if the Dems won in 2018 that is more evidence of your failed hypothesis.

    There’s so much to pick apart in Robbie’s posts but it’s no point because he will NEVER acknowledge any success to Trump. If North Korea works out, it will be among the GREATEST foreign policy accomplishments in 50 years but I doubt that will matter to him.

    I truly believe Robbie wants Trump to fail to make himself feel better. He’s like the girl that gets dumped by her beau and is still whining about it years later when he’s happily married and everyone just cringes at how pathetic she is because she can’t move on. That’s how it come across.

    Robbie making another appearance claiming he’s just worried about the present and future of the Republican Party is laughable. This “concern” from a guy who says he doesn’t care one bit if the border is wide open. No interest in securing the border whatsoever. Well, at least he’s honest. How increasing the proportion of Democrats in the electorate jives with concern over the prospects of the Republican Party is beyond me.

    Of course, it doesn’t jive. That’s because Robbie isn’t about concern for the Republican Party. Robbie is all about his obsessive hate for Trump. I can get the same daily drivel from Jimmy Kimmel, Colbert, the skanks on the View, anyone on CNN 24/7, and all the rest of Robbie’s new bedfellows.

    Now he says he liked Pence but that is another lie.

    I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, and also support the semi-automatic firearm license requirement stated in the article.

    I would also require there be several hours of training as a condition of obtaining the permit, and instructor certification the person is able to handle a semi-automatic. This would be an additional security measure to weed out anyone who appeared to have issues.

    The license idea was proposed when Obama first pushed gun control. However, Obama torpedoed any sort of reasonable compromise. It was very clear Obama looked upon reasonable regulations as only a stepping stone to his extreme anti-gun agenda.

    Trump followed the rules, got the majority vote in the key states where he needed it and won. He didn’t spend one penny in CA because it was a lost cause, so let the left run up the score there, it would still count for 55 EVs and no more.

    2016 was an election that would be decided by about 15 states deemed competitive. Trump won in enough of those states to be sworn in as President.

    After tonight’s WHCD debacle, the GOP message until November should be “They Hate You,” featuring nothing but clips of Hillary/Schumer/Pelosi/Colleges/Media mocking and attacking heartland voters. “They hate you and want to control you. Don’t let them win.”

    Zzzzzzz…..

    The campaigns are based on capturing 270 EVS. The resources, ads, visits etc are based on that goal.
    Both Trump and Hillary played by those rules, the popular vote was irrelevant and both campaigns knew that.

    A popular vote election would have completely different dynamics, nobody would be campaigning in NH or NV on the eve of the election and Trump wouldn’t give up on CA votes and Hillary wouldn’t give up on TX votes. Nobody knows who would have won a popular vote election.

    And finally, your 3rd grade argument is really stupid, more than 50% voted AGAINST Hillary too, 52% as a matter of fact. So under your argument, she would have no mandate either, I am sure you would be here saying that, right?

    Finally, right of center candidates represented by Trump (?), Gary Johnson and Evan McMullin had more votes than Hillary plus Jill Stein.

    Study: Describing Breastfeeding as ‘Natural’ Is Unethical Because It Reinforces Gender Roles

    via Heat Street
    by Jillian Kay Melchior

    “Coupling nature with motherhood… can inadvertently support biologically deterministic arguments about the roles of men and women in the family (for example, that women should be the primary caretaker,” the study says.

    The study notes that in recent years, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization, and several state departments of health have all promoted breastfeeding over bottle-feeding, using the term “natural.”

    “Referencing the ‘natural’ in breastfeeding promotion… may inadvertently endorse a set of values about family life and gender roles, which would be ethically inappropriate,” the study says.

    Unless such public-service announcements “make transparent the ‘values and beliefs that underlie them,’” they should quit describing breastfeeding as “natural.”

    This is factually incorrect on so many levels. There is no evidence Harding was personally in Teapot Dome. He fired Albert Fall and ordered the AG to proseute. No one ever identified Harding himself as a conspirator in Teapot Dome, nor has any credible evidence suggesting a connection ever come to light.

    Republicans had suffered congressional losses in 1922 because of Teapot Dome but had retained Congress nonetheless. There was unlikely to be any further fallout because of the scandal.

  678. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Those who believe that Trump will be easily defeated in 2020 need to take into account the fact that it is likely the Democrats will advocate far left positions: government paid college, free medical care, and guaranteed jobs for everyone at $15 an hour. From Vox:

    “At least three likely Democratic presidential candidates have now endorsed the idea of offering every American a government job at a living wage. First, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) endorsed the idea in an interview; then her Senate colleagues Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) introduced legislation to make it happen. Polling suggests large majorities of Americans like the idea. And in a sure sign that it’s gaining momentum, many libertarian, center-left, and leftist critics are vocally denouncing the proposal.”

    The choice may be re-electing Trump or a Democratic candidate that will turn the U.S. into another Venezuela.

    The online survey of more than 16,000 registered voters ages 18 to 34 shows their support for Democrats over Republicans for Congress slipped by about 9 percentage points over the past two years, to 46 percent overall.
    That presents a potential problem for Democrats who have come to count on millennials as a core constituency – and will need all the loyalty they can get to achieve a net gain of 23 seats to capture control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November.”

    Although nearly two of three young voters polled said they do not like Republican President Donald Trump, their distaste for him does not necessarily extend to all Republicans or translate directly into votes for Democratic congressional candidates.

  710. Phil says:

    Ok, my understanding is that the Republican governor MUST appoint another Republican to replace Senator McCain but that appointee then faces another election to fill the remaining 4 yrs of the McCain term and that election must take place during the regular November, 2018 election. In other words, two Republican seats up in November.

    Anyone have any clarification on the law?

  711. Waingro says:

    #729, biggest take from that poll:

    “Although nearly two of three young voters polled said they do not like Republican President Donald Trump, their distaste for him does not necessarily extend to all Republicans or translate directly into votes for Democratic congressional candidates.”

    This jives against the desperate spinning I have been seeing from “non-partisans” like Wasserman, Enten and Walter about the shrinking generic ballot polling.

  712. Waingro says:

    “Trash it. Dems will win all contested senate seats because everyone hates Trump.”

    LOL. Yup, that is the main talking point I see from all the “non-partisans”.

  713. Waingro says:

    #739, Phil, here is an excerpt from an article (only time I will ever link to Vox!) that summarizes pretty well:

    “If McCain leaves office before May 30, the Post indicated, his Senate seat will be on the ballot in Arizona in November 2018, as will that of his retiring junior colleague, Republican Sen. Jeff Flake. After May 30, the new senator — who would be appointed by Republican Gov. Doug Ducey — would serve through 2020.”

  716. Waingro says:

    Full breakdown of Emerson poll. McCaskill at a miserable 42% “unfavorable” rating already. Hawley is in good position going forward despite what “non-partisans” and some “concerned” posters are saying today at RRH.

    I hate Trump and will continue to vote only for Republican candidates until I die.

  718. DW says:

    Here is the updated House dashboard. Seats are sorted in order the combined score of the five prognosticators shown. A line shows where the Dems would need to reach to gain control. The list is a little long because any seat is included where at least one of the projections is not Safe R/D. There could be a few errors here as I am working on some of the details.

    If Bitter doesn’t shut up about the greatest GOP POTUS in the last 18 years, there will be one less Republican voter in existence. Just saying…

  720. Tgca says:

    I think the Netanyahu announcement tonight on the Iran nuclear deal is probably not what people think. It’s quite possible Iran has seen the light with what’s going on in the Korean Peninsula and doesn’t want to be the last regime out there everyone can focus upon.

    Iran may wish to be proactive and cut a deal too after seeing the pressure from Trump on North Korea.

    If so, the really important question is:

    Will Trump get 2 Nobel Peace Prizes?

  721. Bitterlaw says:

    Trump’s RCP Approval Rating is about to hit 43% once Gallup’s change is added. The highest it’s been in over a year.

    Where is Proud Obamacon?

    Probably really upset his most sacred bastion of Marxism is going wobbly as N Korea makes overtures to the hated capitalists.

    With Castro and Chavez dead and Maduro teetering, he is desperately seeking for a role model to venerate.

    I suggest Van Jones.

    729. “Wobbie aka amoral scumbag hardest hit:”

    Besides amoral scumbags, are there also immoral scumbags and moral scumbags? How about scumbags without morals?

  741. Wes says:

    SDC, an amoral scumbag would be a scumbag without morals since the prefix “a-” means “without.”

  742. Wes says:

    Scott raises $3 million in his quest to unseat Nelson. Nelson last faced a reasonably competent opponent in 2000 and won 51-46. Scott is in a decent position to take down Florida’s senior Senator.

    http://floridapolitics.com/archives/262418-rick-scott-rides-the-money-train-for-3-million

    Meanwhile, the Dems are attacking Scott as a preprogrammed pol. Trump used this against Rubio. It may gain some traction, but Scott can use the same argument against Nelson.

  743. Wes says:

    A new poll says Hawley and Air Claire are tied 45-45. Hawley released an internal showing him up 47-46.

    While I would prefer to see Hawley run away with this, the fact that McCaskill is stuck in the mid 40s after winning 50-47 and 55-39 respectively should be a troubling sign for her–especially since Eric Greitens is probably the only thing keeping her from completely cratering at the moment despite Trump’s erratic favorability ratings.

  744. Phil says:

    ….and O’Rourke is in striking distance of Cruz. The Washington Post told me so.

  745. Wes says:

    if O’Rourke were really within striking distance of Cruz, Republicans would be looking at having no Senators in the Class One seats next January.

    Anyone want to check on Bob Corker?

  747. jason says:

    “Anti-Trump FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page seemingly communicated about “work-related” matters on their personal accounts, according to newly released texts, raising questions about whether they tried to conceal certain discussions from the bureau.

    The Justice Department last week released a series of redacted Strzok-Page text messages to congressional committees. The messages, though, show the FBI officials repeatedly referring to personal accounts, like “gmail” and “imsg” — short for the text message system on iPhones, iMessage.

    “Can I imsg a work q?” Strzok texted Page on April 5, 2017.”

  748. jason says:

    Anyone want to check on Bob Corker?”

    Corker is the hero in this whole deal, you wouldn’t even know half of what was in this “deal” if it weren’t for him.

    Trying to blame him for what the Obama administration did is just character assassination 

    You should be thankful for the excellent work Corker did.

    Elections have consequences. Bob Corker had nothing to do with the concept, negotiations or implementation of the Iran “deal”.

    Nothing, nada, zilch.

    Rumors are “Mikey” wants to build something in Manhattan.

  750. Phil says:

    The Iran deal would never have gotten close to a majority had it been submitted as a treaty let alone the 67 votes it needed for passage.

    Obama simply made it an executive agreement – well, we have a new executive now. Blow it up. Obama can’t do a damned thing about it – nor can the agreement’s enabler Senator Corker.

    Iranians lied and cheated? I’m shocked I tell you!

  751. Phil says:

    It should have been submitted as a treaty. Period.

    Corker a hero? There weren’t any heroes with that abomination. It was a disgrace.

  752. Wes says:

    Well, think about it, Jason. Mikey has never posted even a single critical word about his state’s senior Senator. He routinely bashes McConnell and went far afield to find solace in the Senate Majority Leader’s successful 2014 reelection bid, trumpeting the fact that Bevin came the closest of any primary challenger to unseating a sitting Kentucky Senator–losing by “only” 25 points before eschewing Deadenderism and becoming a successful gubernatorial candidate.

    It’s pretty clear where Mikey’s political priorities are–especially when one considers his support of losers such as Dick the Misogynist Bastard Mourdock and Chris McDaniel.

  753. Phil says:

    …and the last time Corker opened his mouth he was making the talk show circuit telling anyone who would listen how wonderful Phil Bredesen was.

    Chuckie Schumer couldn’t have done it any better.

    “Entrepreneur, Transhumanist lecturer”
    “Puppeteer/Musician”
    “Recording Artist”
    Virtual Reality Manager”
    “Senior Software Engineer”

    Yes, there are immoral scumbags. They are not the same an amoral scumbags. An amoral scumbag has no sense of morality, while an immoral scumbag does.

    Like Wobbie has lied so much in the last 10 years here he doesn’t even know the difference anymore.

    I think moral scumbag is an oxymoron.

    CA-48: Businessman Stelian Onufrei (R) has dropped out of the race to take on Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-NKVD) and endorsed Rohrabacher’s main intraparty challenger, ex-State Rep. Scott Baugh (R). With only two Republicans running active campaigns and a crowded Dem field, the move raises the possibility of Rohrabacher and Baugh continuing to the general in this purple seat that is among Dems’ top pickup opportunities.

    – I would disagree Rubio’s going full RINO. In fact, he just hired the Heritage Action firebrand Michael Needham as his chief of staff.

    My read of Rubio is, once again, he’s reinventing himself. This time he’s fashioning himself as a conservative populist. That stands in contrast to his Tea Party image in 2010 and then his establishment image on the 2013 immigration bill and his 2016 presidential run.

    Some of us worried Rubio was a shape shifter.

  801. Waingro says:

    #827: ” This time he’s fashioning himself as a conservative populist.”

    If he seeks to brand himself as a “conservative” populist, then a blanket attack of the tax cuts from the left is not a good way to go about doing it.

    I know that Mike Lee is Rubio’s ally when it comes to increasing the child tax credit et. al., but he certainly has not attacked the tax cuts and, in fact, has continued to praise them as a whole.

    That’s a good point about Needham, and that makes me even more surprised with Rubio’s comments, given that Heritage’s economic principles were never grounded in “populism”.

    Victims of crime in London could be denied a personal visit from police unless they are judged to be sufficiently “vulnerable”, one of Scotland Yard’s most senior officers has warned.

    Deputy commissioner Craig Mackey said the “absolutely feasible” change would see the Met assessing the level of risk faced by a caller when deciding whether to send officers for a “face to face service”.

    Sri Lankan wins lawsuit against NHS as midwives fail to explain why she needed to feed her son due to language barrier

    A Sri Lankan refugee who could not speak English has won a legal battle against the NHS after her child was brain damaged after hospital staff did not explain the importance of feeding a newborn.

    Nilujan Rajatheepan was in good condition when he was delivered by caesarean section at King George Hospital in Goodmayes, Essex in July 2009.

    His parents are Tamil refugees from Sri Lanka and his mother, Sinthiya, was 21 when Nilujan was born and spoke only very few words of English.

    When the community midwife visited the family at home after the birth, Nilujan was pale and lethargic, having not been fed for more than 15 hours.

    His hypoglycemic state resulted in catastrophic brain injuries. Nilujan, now eight, has cerebral palsy with severely impaired physical and cognitive function.

    On Friday in London, Judge McKenna ruled that Barking, Havering and Redbridge NHS Foundation Trust was liable.

    He ruled midwives failed to hire an interpreter to tell her to feed her baby and the eight-year-old is now in line for multi-million-pound NHS compensation because midwives were negligent in failing to tackle the language barrier.
