  2. Tina says:

    Highest approval in a year?

    But muh stormy, muh 40 questions from mule head, and muh Doctor.

    Muh doctor is funny. The hippy looking doctors records were taken by trumps bodyguard over a year ago.

  3. Michael says:

    Trump is at -9.5. He has shut up and is getting praise on CNN for North Korea. It’s amazing what happens when a media outlet that a good amount of American’s watch suddenly stops fully being negative.

  4. gameboy says:

    What a sorry list for the Dems. I don’t see anyone on there Trump can’t beat. Uncle Joe would have beat him in 2016….don’t think so for 2020.

  5. DW says:

    Did any of you see the video of that 20 story building in Brazil collapse while on fire?

    The news stories about it talked about people screaming from the roof before the collapse, and then it talked about workers looking in the rubble for trapped survivors.

    Uh…watch the video…NOBODY in or on that building survived. The whole thing was a massive fireball and the motion of the collapse increased the availability of oxygen around the blaze resulting in the huge ball of fire that would have instantly incinerated anyone even close to it.

  6. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    A million signatures were turned in to support the repeal of the California’s recent gas tax increase. California’s Governor Brown had attacked the opponents as “freeloaders.” This is an issue that has the possibility of getting a lot of Republicans and conservatives to vote this year in California.

    “When California Gov. Jerry Brown was defending SB 1—last year’s transportation funding package, which included $5.4 billion in annual gas tax and vehicle registration fee increases—he had an uncharitable term for his opponents: freeloaders.
    “The freeloaders—I’ve had enough of them,” he said at an Orange County event. “Roads require money to fix.” The state was strapped for cash, he argued; drivers needed to pay up, lest the roads and highways devolve into gravel paths.
    That argument didn’t carry much water then, given that Golden State motorists were already paying some of the highest gas taxes in the nation. It certainly doesn’t carry much water now that we have a firmer picture of where this new money is going.
    On Thursday, the state’s Transportation Agency announced grant recipients for some $2.6 billion of the transit funding raised by SB 1. The awards include $28.6 million for 40 zero-emission buses in Anaheim and $40.5 million for light-rail vehicles in Sacramento. Los Angeles snagged $330 million to build out its rail transit network in preparation for the 2028 Olympics.
    A total of 28 projects were awarded SB 1 money. None of them involves road upkeep at all.”

    Meanwhile gasoline is approaching $4.00 a gallon in many parts of the state.

  7. DW says:

    SanDiego…CA is long gone. Maybe time to get out before they come to your door armed and seize what little you have left?

  8. DW says:

    More good news that Robbie will cheer about:

    Monmouth POTUS approval:

    Approve 45
    Disapprove 48

  9. DW says:

    Prior Monmouth was 40/54

  10. Chicon says:

    DW, I believe it’s a RV poll, too. LV might look even better.

  11. Phil says:

    A little more Wolfe and Hogg and Trump may actually make it to even in favorability.

  12. Tina says:

    More Hogg, More Benadryl, more comedy, plus the commie and the penguin.

  13. dblaikie says:

    I have been out on limb for weeks saying that the real truth is that a red wave is building. Of course my reasoning has nothing to with polls which I believe all are suspect. Instead it has been because of the conservative voter anger that has been building over the 2nd Amendment and immigration. And of course undergirded by the disdain of the common person by the elites in DC. This trend is continuing. The Correspondence Dinner was a great boon to the building red wave and the Comey tour continues to yield conservative anger.

    However, now we have what is going on in Iraq and particularly South Korea and North Korea. If Trump is proved to be right in Iraq and Korea and concrete actions happen. Watch out!! The backlash will be fun to watch against all the talking heads who claim Trump is the world idiot on the world stage. A good economy, peace in Korea, Iraq revealed for who they are, will speak for themselves this November. Once again, I just want to record, the blue wave crested about 3 months ago. The red wave is starting to build.

    I will enjoy the panic. Of course the good news is that when this becomes more evident we won’t have to endure wobbles posts.

  14. mnw says:

    So, how do we get Trump’s HUUGE approval numbers to rub off on all the wretched GOP dorks in Congress?

    Btw, technically speaking, I retired yesterday. 27 years. So now I’ll have even more time to annoy the trolls… and lots of others.

  15. DW says:

    mnw–congrats!

  16. Ray Tuleya says:

    The idea that Republicans would lose the Senate would be a Watergate type of blue wave. Dems should have no prayer in Missouri and Montana. My prediction, GOP pick-up of 3 seats in the Senate, but losing about 20 seats in the house.

  17. mnw says:

    DW

    Thx. I could still sue people if I wanted. I don’t want, though.

  18. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    CNN is swooning over the fall in shootings and murders in Chicago last month

    “The city had 173 shootings last month, compared to 245 in April of 2017, police said. The number of murders in April dropped from 48 in 2017 to 37 last month.”

    If in a comparably sized red state there were 173 shootings and 37 murders in one month, CNN would be going bonkers.

  19. janz says:

    #13 Tina — what a perfect twitter picture of the three pathetic stooges!

    #6 SanDiego — in some N. CA places gasoline is over $4! I think Brown/dems are getting some well deserved blow-back from not only this tax, but also Brown’s “high speed train” ballooning out of control, the sanctuary city backlash, SF turning into a slum, and the bad optics of the border wall invasion by people demanding to enter this country, calling it a “right!”

    #14 dblaike — you may have a point about the ebbing of the “blue wave.” The dems and their MSM pals are becoming embarrassing in their overall behavior. This whole Candace Owens/Kanye West revolt against the dems, the disgusting Correspondents Dinner applauding/laughing over a shameful toast, Ronny Jackson’s nomination debacle (caused by an Obama left-over who was jealous of Jackson’s WH promotions), Maxine Water’s loony-tune comments, and so many more. Also, like another poster noticed, when DJT gets even a small slice of good press from the MSM it’s amazing how his numbers seem to expand.

  20. Tina says:

    Brown is in trouble.

    Arrogant and mean.

    Also,

    Huge overruns on the bullet train.

    Gas tax.

    Cities voting against sb 54.

    Illegals getting driver licenses. Fraud, waste, and abuse.

  21. Wes says:

    Let’s see…There are 30 days in April. Last year, 48 Chicagoans were murdered in April. That’s 1.6 per day.

    This year, 37 Chicagoans were murdered in April. That’s approximately 1.23 perday.

    At this rate, maybe Chicago won’t be having at least a murder a day in April next year.

    I can’t believe I just typed that.

  22. Phil says:

    O’Rourke wants some debates with Cruz in Spanish.

    LOL I’m just surprised he’s opened to any debates in English.

  23. janz says:

    Tina, do you think there is at least a chance of having a republican being one of the two on the ballot for governor this November?

  24. janz says:

    While I’m not a Tom Brokaw fan. I find women complaining about unwanted kisses or embraces 50 years later a little “late.” What is their point?

  25. Tina says:

    Oh, I hope so, Janz. Not fair to have leftist nut job 1 and leftist nut job 2″

    Gavin is hard left.

  26. Phil says:

    What elected official in California is not hard left?

    It’s Venezuela for God’s sake.

  27. Tina says:

    Flynn sentencing extended a second time.

  28. DW says:

    Atlanta Braves are for real…if they can pitch they will win a lot of games. They can sure hit. Their catcher is hitting a respectable .288.
    Yet the team has 5 other starters hitting better.

    The Mets by comparison have Cabrera batting .330. Their next best is .258.

  29. Gpo says:

    Dw – we need to get a catcher if we are going to do anything this year – can’t win long term with 2 automatic outa in the lineup- sandy messed up not signing Lucroy in the offseason which I said before Darnaud got hurt ( he stinks hope he never plays another game in a met uniform again )

  30. DW says:

    Mets in real trouble with first of three game series with Braves. They already ceded the third game of series, and losing 3-1 tonight in 8th inning, and have given up 14 hits so far. Braves seem to be able to hit at will–even against good pitching

  31. DW says:

    31 – agreed on d’Arnoud. Yep Nido batting .185, Lobaton batting .143 and Plawecki before his injury was at .150.

    Mets Pitchers hitting better than their catchers. Hard to score when you have two automatic outs.

  32. DW says:

    wow–SIX of the Braves starting lineup have gotten 2 or more hits tonight. Amazing they have only 3 runs.

  33. DW says:

    and their other two position players have one hit each.

  34. Ron N says:

    Now 43% say end Russian investigation to 54% March was 37% to 60% that has to show Indy moving away from witch hunt!!! Mueller needs to put something out there or quit.

  35. Phil says:

    Mueller’s plan is to get Trump on obstruction. He will do it in one of two ways —

    *a Trump sit down interview full of trap questions

    or

    *subpoena him before a grand jury where he will be asked trap questions.

    Some choice. There is no way out for Trump. The whole thing is BS but you have a Washington swamp creature in Mueller who has been charged with doing something an election couldn’t do – get rid of Donald Trump. All you have to do is take a quick look at Mueller’s staff of Hillary donors to see where this is headed.

    It isn’t rocket science, people.

  36. Cash Cow TM says:

    Well, the nationally televised FOXNEWS debate for the R primary for WV U.S. Senate seat between

    Morrisey
    Jenkins
    Blankenship

    was held tonight.

    I did not see it–was with Walt at a Young Life fundraiser dinner.

    Early reports indicate it was a demolition derby between the three.

    And that Blankenship did very well.

    UGGH!

  37. janz says:

    I can’t believe Moeller is considering subpoening Trump. Supposedly stocks & dollar sliding on this threat. What an obsessive man Mueller is, with no objectivity regarding the havoc he is creating for the country in order to take Trump down!

  38. Michael says:

    Two State House races occurred tonight.

    FL-HD-39 (GOP Held)
    GOP held the seat 60-40. Trump won the seat 58-39 so the GOP saw a slight improvement in the district.

    FL-HD-114 (Dem Held)
    Democrats held on 51-47 in a seat Clinton carried 56-42. So the GOP actually improved in both special elections.

  39. janz says:

    Cash cow, Too bad about Blankenship…IMO Jenkins is the best candidate. Who do you and Walt like?

  40. DW says:

    Case in point with the Mets woes at catcher. Game was on the line and their light hitting catcher up. Manager made the mistake of pinch hitting Wilmer Flores for the catch, and forgot to notice that Wilmer was hitting only .192. He had Juan Lagares pinch run for Gonzales just before sending Wilmer to bat, but should have put Lagares at the plate to hit for the catcher because Juan is hitting .342 as backup outfielder. Huge managing gaffe on the part of the Mets.

    However, he should not do any interview with mule head.

  44. lisab says:

    riot police deployed?

    if lesbos are in flames, shouldn’t they deploy the fire department?

  45. lisab says:

    not sure he can avoid talking to mulehead …

    however, it will be seen as a political hit by everyone but the never trumpers and hard core dems

    everyone else will see it as a rejection of the election

  49. dblaikie says:

    If Trump is forced to go before the Grand Jury he should just exercise his right to take the 5th. He should then go out and say he wouldn’t dignify the Mueller witch hunt. I think his base would cheer that.

  50. Tina says:

    Mule head cannot subpoena trump. Well he could, but the problem is that mule head works for trump. This same problem occurs in the Clinton matter, when the subpoena was squished it. The courts have ruled against it.

    This leak is all old news, pre Guiliani,

    Mule head cannot establish a crime with trump. He has derailed with a witness being intoxicated, a peso fleeing the country, and the untimely raid of Cohen. He went too far and appears too one sided. Has not looked at fusion, Simpson, Hillary, etc.

    In North Carolina, Democrats Lead Generic Ballot for General Assembly and U.S. House of Representatives:

    When North Carolinians are asked today whether they will vote for a Republican or a Democrat for the North Carolina general assembly, 44% vote for a generic Democrat, 37% vote for a generic Republican, according to this latest SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for Spectrum News North Carolina.

    Republicans win in greater Charlotte and in Southern and Coastal NC. Democrats win in greater Greensboro and greater Raleigh.

    When North Carolinians are asked today whether they will vote for a Republican or a Democrat for the U.S. House of Representatives, 44% vote for a generic Democrat, 41% vote for a generic Republican. Whites vote Republican 5:3. African Americans vote Democrat 13:1.

    37% of North Carolina registered voters say allegations of sexual affairs between President Trump and women other than his wife are “of great public concern,” according to this latest SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for Spectrum News North Carolina. Another 23% say the allegations are “of minor public concern;” 36% say they are of no public concern at all.

    43% today say they approve of the job President Trump is doing; 50% disapprove — a Minus 7 Net Job Approval. 7 months ago, Trump was at Minus 12.

    40% today say things in the United States are headed in the right direction today, up from 29% seven months ago; 53% say things are off on the wrong track, down from 61% seven months ago.

    49% of North Carolina registered voters today say they approve of the job Roy Cooper is doing as Governor, according to this latest SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for Spectrum News North Carolina. 26% say they disapprove. Subtracting disapproval from approval yields Net Job Approval; Cooper today is at Plus 23, up from Plus 18 seven months ago.

    Asked if things in North Carolina are headed in the right direction or if they are off on the wrong track, voters today have swung 20 points toward a positive outlook. Seven months ago, 41% said wrong track, 37% right direction; today, a complete turn-around: 47% say right direction, 31% wrong track.

  53. Hugh says:

    I think that people are becoming tired of this investigation and more inclined to think the investigators are biased and unethical. Trump should agree to providing written responses and beyond that fight it out in court and see what happens. I don’t see a downside to telling
    Mueller to stick it.

    Thank you Nancy. Your help is greatly appreciated. Now your image will be in every one of our house campaign commercials.

  57. DW says:

    Democrats making some rare unforced errors. Should have looked at the math earlier (from RRH):

    CA-48: Emily List endorsed candidate Rachel Payne (D) has announced she was suspending her campaign for Congress. It is too late to take her name off the primary ballot as California voters have already started to vote by mail. Her withdrawal is an attempt by Democrats to lessen the odds of two Republicans, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher and former Assemblyman Scott Baugh, from making the top two runoff in this R+4 seat. Five other Democrats are still running and actively campaigning.

  58. DW says:

    other good news posted at RRH:

    ME-2: Democratic congressional contender Jonathan Fulford has withdrawn from the congressional race citing the campaign pressures on his family. Fulford’s surprise withdrawal leaves three Democrats (state Rep. Jared Golden of Lewiston, environmentalist Lucas St. Clair and Islesboro bookstore owner Craig Olson) vying for the party’s backing in a June 12 primary which will be decided by ranked-choice voting. The winner of the Democrat primary will face Rep. Bruce Poliquin (R).

  59. mnw says:

    Investor’s Business Daily has a fascinating article about a big-sample Pew poll, showing that DEMs are slipping badly with millenials.

    Shorthand version: they’re getting married & trying to buy starter homes. Gun control & single payer are just not central to their concerns!

  60. DW says:

    “…they’re getting married & trying to buy starter homes.”

    And they are trying to do that riding under the load of 60k of student loan debt.

    It is sad what Democrats have done to this country. I know of one situation where a young couple is thrilled and celebrating because four years into their marriage, with one child now, they have finally been able to afford a used fifth-wheel trailer they can live in and call home. The new décor will not include a fading poster of Obama on the wall.

  61. Chicon says:

    Hello mnw, congrats on the retirement.

    The youngsters in question probably need to hear from Republicans about their plan to help the youngsters in their economic quests. They probably don’t want to hear about single payer or gun control from either party.

  63. Michael says:

    Trump’s average has now surged to -9.1. Reuters (from what I have seen from their rolling average) could be around -10 to -6 again. I think Trump gets above -9% today. Truly remarkable turnaround in the span of less than two months where he was at -15.5.

In a year or so, I’ll post what I’ve been doing for the last 27 years, & that will explain why fools like 3 iiis pizz me off so much.

    David Perron & Ryan Reaves sure landed on their feet in Vegas.

  67. Michael says:

    I would love to see some candidate polls be released now showing a candidates doing better now that the headwinds are starting to die down some.

  68. mnw says:

    We aren’t going to hear a peep about impeachment from the DEMs before the election. Same reason the not-so-special prosecutor will NEVER wrap up his baloney before election day.

    Turning to the millennials again, I never paid any attention to student loan rates. Doesn’t concern me. I had wrongly assumed that the rates were huuugely subsidized by the govt, & therefore artificially low. They are not! Mafia loan sharks would be embarrassed to charge what some of my friends’ kids are paying.

  69. Michael says:

    69 I agree. However Democrats will have to bring all this up again if they want to have a chance. Because Trump’s approval ratings are ticking up. If he is at -9 nationally he’s probably up to +6 or so in Missouri/Indiana and +15 or so in North Dakota.

    He’s suddenly becoming an asset for the Senate GOP. Democrats have lost this small part of the media cycle for some reason besides just North Korea and I am fine with it.

  70. DW says:

    mnw…government involvement in higher education is the problem. Its a racket. Every time the Department of Ed ups the federal grant and loan ceilings, the schools, especially of the for-profit brand, jack up the rates of tuition to match the maximum the students can get from the gov’t.

    If the gov’t got out and shut down federal aid, it would be a huge relief to taxpayers, and it would force schools to trim the fat, lower costs, stop paying athletic coaches 7 figures, and so on. Free market economics would take over, and schools would have to compete for students in ways helpful toward keeping costs down.

    The for-profit places are the worst. They promise some 18 year old kid that if he goes 80,000 in debt to learn cooking from their elite chef instructors, he will get a job at the Waldorf making 600,000 a year. The kid takes the program, goes into debt, graduates and gets a job at a greasy spoon family restaurant making minimum wage.

    Some are advising these students to never pay back the loans as the government will eventually declare amnesty and forgive the debt.

  71. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Last night, I watched most of the West VA GOP Senate debate. The FOX questioners, McCallum and Baier, asked very topical questions and managed the debate very well.
    Blankenship was very folksy.
    Jenkins was well prepared, but came off a bit slippery.
    Morrissey was a bit stiff at times, but is the True Conservative of the bunch.

    They all effectively savaged incumbent Joe Manchin(D) as a BLUE FRAUD.

    If I were a WV Voter, my vote would be cast for AG Morrissey.

  72. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    #70 Michael
    I agree and GOP Senate candidates must be mindful that the Senate losses sustained by the GOP in 2016 were due to the candidates’ complete severances from Trump. To wit: Ayotte in NH and Heck in NV.

    I’ve always suspected that if Ayotte & Trump had made even ONE joint campaign appearance NH, 1) Trump would’ve carried NH, & 2) Ayotte would have been reelected. They needed each other

    Trump losing NH could’ve cost him the WH gig quite easily,

    I agree and GOP Senate candidates must be mindful that the Senate losses sustained by the GOP in 2016 were due to the candidates’ complete severances from Trump. To wit: Ayotte in NH and Heck in NV.

    This is factually incorrect. Kelly Ayotte lost because some loony toon pseudoconservative ran with the express stated purpose of splitting her vote and helping Maggie Hassan win. Joe Heck lost because of the backlash against Trump in his state.

    Both Ayotte and Heck suffered the same fate as Trump in their states–losing them–suggesting the fate of the party’s presidential candidate was paramount for the Senate nominee. Running with Trump would have done nothing for either Ayotte or Heck and probably would have cost both support. Let’s not forget both ran better than Trump in their states.

    In the meantime, in states Trump won, Republicans reelected Lisa Murkowski, John McCain, Marco Rubio, and Rob Portman despite their public antipathy toward Trump.

    Each other than Murkowski (facing a q u ixotic challenge from Joe Miller) actually ran ahead of Trump despite openly disbaining him. Severing themselves from Trump hurt none of them.

  86. Wes says:

    Disdaining*

  87. DW says:

    Wes – I think it was Mike Huckabee on the Fox News election night coverage that was the first to make that pseudo-connection between GOP senate candidates who lost matching those who ran away from Trump. Others picked up on that and keep repeating it even though it’s not true, as you demonstrated.

  88. Wes says:

    Trump helped some Republicans win, DW. That I’ll concede. His strong performance in Indiana for example was a definite boon to Todd Young. Meanwhile, had Trump not crushed Hillary in Missouri, Roy Blunt almost certainly would have lost.

    On the other hand, if Trump lost a state, the GOP Senate candidate also lost. This suggests a tying of the Senate candidate to the presidential candidate in a given state rather than any interest by the voters in whether the would-be Senator backed Trump.

  89. DW says:

    True about IN and MO Wes. The fallacy is taking the cause of an end result and assigning the same cause to other situations that happen to have had the same end result.

  90. Bitterlaw says:

    Wes – My niece chose East Carolina. I thought she was stron enough to handle 4 seasons but you know this generation is soft. She is very excited.

  91. Bitterlaw says:

    Ayotte lost because more than 20k libertarian morons preferred tossing away their votes on Day than electing Ayotte. The Dem loved their support.

  92. Wes says:

    Oh, definitely, DW. If Trump won a state, the Republican won the corresponding Senate race. If Hillary won that state, the Dem won the corresponding Senate race. It was really that simple.

    It had nothing to do with whether or not a Republican supported Trump as Senate voting in 2016 herded with presidential voting.

    Occam’s Razor.

    Sadly Trump’s hardcore supporters have deluded thdmselves into thinking he’s some kind of political deity able to trigger victory or defeat based on nothing more substantial than how closely a Republican allies with him.

  93. Wes says:

    The data is a fresh rebuttal to those who warned that hundreds of billions of dollars of tax relief will head directly to the stock market and be harvested by shareholders already fattened by a nine-year bull market.

    TRUMP AIDE MICHAEL CAPUTO’S SHOCKING STATEMENT TO THE SENATE INTEL COMMITTEE

    Caputo, a former Trump campaign adviser, delivered this statement to the committee on Tuesday, May 1, 2018:

    ‘In 2009, my wife and I moved to my hometown of East Aurora, New York to have a family. Making far less money back home, we had a far better quality of life. That is, until the Trump-Russia narrative took off. Today, I can’t possibly pay the attendant legal costs and live near my aging father, raising my kids where I grew up.
    ‘Your investigation and others into the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russia are costing my family a great deal of money – more than $125,000 – and making a visceral impact on my children.

    ‘Now I must to move back to Washington, New York City, Miami or elsewhere, just so I can make enough money to pay off these legal bills. And I know I have you to thank for that.

    ‘Here’s how I know: how many of you know Daniel Jones, former Senate Intelligence staffer for Senator Dianne Feinstein? Great guy, right? Most of you worked with him. One of you probably just talked to him this morning.

    ‘Of course, very few of us in flyover country knew Daniel until recently. Now we know that he quit his job with your Senate committee not long ago to raise $50 million from ten rich Democrats to finance more work on the FusionGPS Russian dossier. The one the FBI used to get a FISA warrant and intimidate President Donald Trump, without anyone admitting — until months after it was deployed — that it was paid for by Hillary Clinton.

    ‘In fact, good old Dan has been raising and spending millions to confirm the unconfirmable – and, of course, to keep all his old intel colleagues up-to-speed on what FusionGPS and British and Russian spies have found. Got to keep that Russia story in the news.

    ‘Of course Dan’s in touch with you guys. We know from the news that he’s been briefing Senator Mark Warner, vice chairman of this committee. Which one of you works for Senator Warner? Please give Danny my best.

    ‘I saw some of his handiwork just last month. Remember this lede paragraph, from McClatchy on April 13?

    ‘The Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

    ‘That’s your pal Dan, isn’t it? He came up with some kind of hollow proof that Michael Cohen was in Prague meeting with Russians when he wasn’t. He tried to sell that to reporters, and they didn’t buy it because it doesn’t check out. So, to get a reporter to write up his line of bull, he gave the documents to the Office of Special Counsel.

    ‘We know that’s likely, because he’s told people he’s briefing investigators.
    ‘So, technically, the special counsel’s office has evidence. Your pal Dan gave them more of the Democrats’ dossier, funded by more Democrats, provided again by Russian and British spies. Information no reporter would write up, but now there’s an angle: the Special Counsel has it. Now it’s a story.

    ‘It’s a clever but effective ruse. That’s a story, just like when reporter Michael Isikoff of Yahoo News wrote this gem on September 16, 2016:
    ‘“…U.S. officials have since received intelligence reports that during that same three-day trip, Page met with Igor Sechin, a longtime Putin associate … a well-placed Western intelligence source tells Yahoo News. That meeting, if confirmed, is viewed as especially problematic by U.S. officials…”

    ‘Dozens of stories were written from the Isikoff piece, doing real damage to the Trump campaign. Of course, now we know Isikoff’s reference to “intelligence reports” was just him renaming a dossier funded by Democrats and dug up by his longtime pal Glenn Simpson and some foreign spies. Once Simpson gave his Clinton campaign opposition research to the feds, it was news.
    ‘This was especially true after Isikoff intentionally labeled the campaign materials as intelligence – just like McClatchy called Dan’s information “evidence.”

    ‘But who is McClatchy’s second source? It couldn’t be Dan; he was the first source. It couldn’t be Simpson; he works for Dan. It can’t be the Mueller investigation; they kicked the McClatchy story to the curb with aplomb. So who could it be – perhaps one of his former Senate Intelligence colleagues? I mean, you’re all in this together. You’re the swamp.

    ‘What America needs is an investigation of the investigators. I want to know who is paying for the spies’ work and coordinating this attack on President Donald Trump? I want to know who Dan Jones is talking to across the investigations – from the FBI, to the Southern District of New York, to the OSC, to the Department of Justice, to Congress.

    ‘Forget about all the death threats against my family. I want to know who cost us so much money, who crushed our kids, who forced us out of our home, all because you lost an election.
    ‘I want to know because God Damn you to Hell.’

    Gameboy is right. If you are going to kill the king, you better make sure he’s dead. Trump is still alive, so its his time now to wipe these vermin out.

    If the roles were reversed, Obama would have done it long ago.

    ok, Matt Harvey is as bad as Vargas…Harvey came in to replace him and gave up five runs. Time to can both of them and go with Lugo and Gsellman.

    Lisab,

    You have pointed that out many times.

    Certain people just need to blame ANYONE else.

    Too bad Ayotte listened to the wrong advisor. I would rather she still be Senator.

    Oh well

    Isn’t it amazing how far out of his way Mikey goes to defend Aaron Day when Day not only said he ran to cost Ayotte the election but crowed about achieving that goal the next day?

    Damn! I’m blaming the guy who claimed that end as his goal and celebrated accomplishing it.

    There are some dumbasses on HHR, but Mikey is definitely chief among them.

  185. Wes says:

    Yes, Mikey, I’m blaming this guy–the guy who took credit for her loss, you moron:

    So right! I would never run for office in this environment. The chit that would come out on me would totally be twisted and distorted into scandalous behavior.

    All those late nights in the parks and rest stops – I suffer from insomnia and a walk with a bit of fresh air helps me to fall back to sleep…and I sleep in leather shorts and a tank Tee so no need to change just for a bit of fresh air.

    The foot tapping in the public bathroom stalls – I always seem to enter stalls missing toilet paper and need to request a neighborly favor.

    The inappropriate language and pictures exchanged in Grindr – someone keeps hacking my account, and I have no idea how they got those types of pics of me.

    The backroom visits at the adult bars – I can’t hear with all the blaring music so what’s wrong with a little private room to discuss the latest current events with other friendly patrons.

    There is clearly a decent and reasonable explanation for these occurrences that some people distort for their own perverted thoughts. Shame on them!

  190. Wes says:

    Far fewer than the number of Schumer blowup dolls you have, Mikey.

    I called you HHR’s chief dumbass for a reason:

    You’re an idiot.

Here’s a thought: if that bunch is all innocent, then they have not one thing to worry about. And, if they committed a crime or crimes, then no one is above the law. And, I do mean no one. Bill Clinton was impeached. Nixon had to resign. Neither of them were above the law. Trump is not, either. Let the investigation finish. Then, everyone will know. I cannot believe what I am reading, here. Some of you know better than this. Geez. I think I’ll go away now, and you can pound me for a while. I needed to stir up some activity on this site. LOL

    There ar e concerns.

    Flynn may walk due to prosecutor lapses. The judge is anti gubment corruption.

    Mulehead failed to produce, despite leaking, reports of mana fort talking to Russians. No documents exist.

    Mana fort is sleazy, but those are his biz. Dealings. However, the same thing can be said about Pedo Podesta.

    “while being only able to call me a prostitute.”

  203. Tina says:

    Mulehead never charged Flynn with talking to the Russians. It is not mule ads authority to decide who a government elect talks to and is normal for transition officials to outreach with their counterparts abroad.

  204. Tina says:

    I have no doubts that trump team leaked the lawyah questions and the Cohen non wiretap, wiretap.

    It makes Mulehead look like an idiot.

  207. Tgca says:

    Notice the distortion in Tim’s post. 19 have been indicted?

    Ok. Let’s do the math!

    Were not 13 Russians outside the US indicted who were NOT associated with either campaign at all. If you remember Rod’s press conference stating that. In fact, I believe the statement was these Russians were trying to influence voters against both candidates. This was just window dressing to make Muellers work look good. We mind as well indict Assad in Syria for lying too. It means nothing to indict foreigners outside the US.

    Flynn indicted for lying about a meeting that was legal because he got scared. That’s 14 so far.

    Manafort and his boy Gates for paperwork misrepresentations that are rarely prosecuted and lying about them that go back 10+ years before they worked with Trump. That’s 16 so far but could have been 17 if Clinton loyalist Podesta was indicted for similar paperwork violations that they recently amended after investigators starting probing them.

    A lawyer who worked with Gates that lied to the FBI about his legal work for Gates years ago. That’s 17 now.

    George Pepadopulous, a low level Trump campaign guy for lying to the FBI about bragging about a conversation but nothing to do with the Trump campaign or his duties thereof. He mind as well as lied about his manhood in that case and he still would have been indicted just because he fibbed yo the FBI. HOW DARE HE!!! That’s 18 now.

    …and finally, some CA dude associated with the 13 Russians for lying about identity theft. That’s 19!

    Of the 19, only 1 indictment directly related to Trump campaign activities, that being Flynn who lied about a legal meeting he had for whatever reason.

  208. Tina says:

    Papa dope. A hrc plant.

  209. Tgca says:

    What’s funny is that there is evidence of FBI officials lying to the public and Congress but they’re indicting others for lies they do themselves. What hypocrisy.

    This is a like hooker chastising others for having sex before marriage. It’s so absurdly ridiculous, and if we did not have such a weakling AG many of these folks would be fired or prosecuted.

  210. Tgca says:

    No direct connection of Trump to Russia and the election yet but we do know that Clinton and DNC folks hired a foreign spy to work with Russian foreign spies to gather dirt to influence the election but no charges have been brought against Clinton and Company for working with foreign spies from Russia. I’m sure that campaign funds to pay spies falls within legal campaign expenditures if properly reported.

    OH WAIT!!! They buried the costs they paid foreign spies and did not disclose them as proper campaign expenditures.

  213. lisab says:

    Your theory is based on the idea that people who listened to talk radio and were Trump voters would deliberately choose to not vote for Ayotte, a legitimate conservative, in order to assure the election of a hard core leftist. I do not agree.
    —————————————–

    ummmmmmmmm … howie carr’s listeners definitely trend towards trump supporters, and would not be what the gop establishment would consider “conservatives”

    there are just not a lot establishment republicans in the north east.

    the idea that 1000 or so trump supporters heard that ayotte was intentionally snubbing trump and decided to snub ayotte is not at all far-fetched. in fact it is quite likely.

    alough … had ayotte won by a few hundred votes, i would guess the dems would have “found” some votes

  214. lisab says:

    trump could be and probably will be impeached if the dems get control of the house

    but like clinton, he has too many hard core supporters who will not allow the gop senators to convict him

    the impeachment will be seen as a purely political move — even by many in the gop establishment — and will damage the dems

  217. Redmen4ever says:

    How the feds get people to admit to making false statements:

    Middle class and above do not have public defendants. When they are forced to defend themselves in court, they face the prospect of tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars of legal expenses. Combine this with the possible penalties upon a convicted, and copping to a plea starts to look attractive.

    Scooter Libby was ruined by his convictions, even though his sentence was later commuted by one president, and he was pardoned by another. When the D.C. Bar considered his reinstatement, it concluded that his conviction was based on false testimony (but not perjury, not deliberately false). A reporter testified in court that Scooter revealed to her that Plame worked at the CIA, when her notes did not indicate that. Her “elliptical” notes (meaning difficult to decipher) actually indicated that Libby said Plame worked at the State Dept. (Plame’s cover). The reporter wondered if she had been responsible for the conviction of an innocent man.

    In the Scooter Libby case, the legal bills ran into the millions, but were covered by Republican fundraisers.

  220. lisab says:

    Since Ayotte had more votes than Trump, it is just as likely that appearing with Trump would have cost her votes.
    —————————————–

    unlikely for two reasons …

    she did not have to appear with trump or speak at the event, several politicians sent a representative from their campaign and simply said nothing publicly

    and

    she would not have been bashed the day before the election all day long on talk radio for doing so

    instead she decided to poke the trump supporters in the eye

  221. Bitterlaw says:

    Bashed on the radio by people who already had made up their minds to not vote for her. Their mindset had to be “If Kelly does not kiss Trump’s ass, I hope the leftist wins.” Those people would never have voted for Ayotte.

  222. Bitterlaw says:

    If Trump runs in 2020 I will again vote to stop the Democrat. I will then be relieved that I will never again have to vote for that amoral scumbag.

  223. lisab says:

    Bashed on the radio by people who already had made up their minds to not vote for her.
    —————————————–

    unfortunately for ayotte, the vast majority of people were not paying attention at all until the final days of the election.

    so most had not made up their minds at all

    until there was wall to wall coverage of how she went out of her way to snub trump.

    that is what happens when the most popular radio host of the local market happens to be a friend and frequent guest of the trumps’ down in mar a lago — you get roasted

    and before you ask, there was no comparable local air america host that would have complained for hours and hours that ayotte had merely politely declined to appear at the rally

    sooooooooo … basically it was a self-inflicted wound on her part and cost her votes

  226. Wes says:

    LisaB keeps ignoring the simple fact that Kelly Ayotte got more votes than Donald Trump in NH. If Ayotte lost any Trump voters, she picked up many more not voting for Trump.

    That’s where Aaron Day came in. He ran explicitly to split her vote. Mission accomplished.

  227. Wes says:

    Kelly Ayotte got 353,632 votes in NH two years ago. Donald Trump got 345,790. That’s a difference of 7,832 votes. If she lost any Trump votes, she clearly gained many others elsewhere.

  228. lisab says:

    i am not ignoring that …

    it is simply that ayotte went out of her way to insult trump voters the day before the election

    and it almost certainly cost her far more than 1000 votes

    while had she simply politely declined to appear with the donald, it would not have cost her any of the anti-trumper votes and few trumper votes

  229. Wes says:

    You are ignoring it because you’re saying some nebulous votes Trump got while failing to come within 7,000 of Ayotte’s vote total would have given her a victory.

    That not only makes no logical sense but has nothing concrete backing it.

    Simply put, Trump did not help Ayotte by losing the state. Aaron Day drove the final stake by splitting her vote.

    That makes a lot more sense than the Rube-Goldberg scenario you’re laying out, Lisa.

  230. lisab says:

    you are simply wrong

    the rube goldberg machine is yours if you think she in any way helped herself by insulting trump supporters the day before the election

    it is one thing to not support trump, quite another to insult his supporters

  231. lisab says:

    btw …

    i do admire FORMER senator ayotte’s honesty, assuming she was telling the truth and not just virtue signaling

    it was just a stupid POLITICAL move

    i certainly have said equally bad things about bill clinton in the teachers’ room, but then, i am not trying to maximize votes

    The libertarians that voted for Aron Day were never going to vote for Ayotte.

As I recall, the GOP establishment considered NH to be a writeoff & didn’t target the state, or make any late ad buys. (This is my recollection, but it may be wrong.)

    A federal judge on Friday sharply criticized Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s criminal case in Virginia against President Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and openly questioned whether Mueller exceeded his prosecutorial powers by bringing it.

    “I don’t see what relationship this indictment has with anything the special counsel is authorized to investigate,” U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis in the Eastern District of Virginia said.

    At tense hearing at the federal courthouse in Alexandria, Virginia, the judge said Mueller should not have “unfettered power” in his Russia probe and that the charges against Manafort did not arise from the investigation into Moscow’s alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

    Right, I think wes is correct.

    I am with those that say Ayotte helped Trump in NH, not the other way around.

    She almost pulled him over the top.

    The fact is that most GOP senate candidates that distanced themselves from Trump did better than he did. Toomey is another example. McCain.

    Kirk and Trump got about the number of votes in IL.

    Heck, however, got 17k fewer votes than Trump in NV. I would agree that his wavering stance hurt him.

    I voted for Toomey and not for Trump. But I would have voted for him even if he had been strong for Trump, Bitter convinced me that not too would be a mistake. He was right.

    One thing about Ayotte & NH:

    We’re all observing it in the rearview mirror, not in the fog of battle, so of course we each think we have the reasonable answer NOW.

    I do think Ayotte’s strategy seems excessively risk averse, but that’s easy for me to say a year & 4 months later.

    If the Trump campaign only had to worry about NH, I’m sure they would’ve done things differently. I suspect that in mid-October 2016, the Trump decision-makers felt like they were strapped to the side of an ICBM.

    The reason NH lingers is that it was such a tantalizingly close loss for both the senator & Trump. Boy, could we use Ayotte right now, even recognizing that she was never going to be Ms. MAGA,

If cnn covered it, I think the credibility of Muellers tactics are going to become more obvious to even the most casual observer. Trump should not agree to any interview unless Rudy is sitting right next to him. If they want to subpoena him, fine. Plead the 5th and go to court. The resistance will not change their minds, but I think others will see this now for what it is.

    Jason, this is the first push back Mueller has faced from the judiciary on the scope of his “investigation” A special counsel does not have unlimited scope and authority. Nobody elected this guy to have unlimited power to go anywhere he wants with this. That’s exactly what he has been doing and it’s about time he faced some limits. Way past time in fact. He has been acting like he doesn’t have any limits and is some kind of all powerful force with a license to do anything he pleases. Nothing like this should happen in a democracy.

    I think destroying the respect of these agencies is a good thing. They clearly have run amok for quite a while. I deal with number of regulatory bodies that are equally if not more corrupt. I just hope a deep cleansing takes place. Had they gone after lehner like a ton of bricks it may have served as a warning. To get these unelected arbitors of justice, who will use their power and money to destroy people if they do not get what they want, to cut it out we need some scalps.

    BOTH Trump and Ayotte underperformed in NH:

    Trump lost some votes he would have gotten if Ayotte had finessed her position better.

    Ayotte lost some votes she would have gotten if Ayotte had finessed her position better.

    Different voters.

    It was a murder-suicide.

    Per Newsmax article:

    Father of Parkland Victim Files Lawsuit Against ‘Pusillanimous’ Cop

    Being a IGORENT unEDUMACATED guy from NJ I can’t pronounce those big words but I can describe the cop as a

    Puss* a$$ b*tch mofo.

  260. Michael says:

    Trump’s approval numbers are down to -8.6, I am starting to think this is around Lean R for ND and MO Sen. Especially if the GOP impeaches Greitens and gets him out of Missouri politics

  261. Tgca says:

    Regarding the Ayotte election in 2016…

    …as Bitter would say….Zzzzz

    I don’t think Trump hurt her, as much as she hurt herself. She won her last election, be it in an off-POTUS election year, by 23 points and this time lost by less than 1 point. Being that GOP senate losses was not a trend across states in 2016, I suspect this was more about local politics. She clearly was not resonating with folks in her state so let me analyze for all you stoopid unEDUMACATED people.

    The turnout in 2016 and 2012 was nearly identical at about 710K to 715K from what I see.

    Obama won NH over Romney by 52 to 46 with others at 2

    Clinton won NH over Trump by 47.6 to 47.2 with others at 5.2.

    Trump clearly out performed Romney, by about 16K votes

    Since Ayotte did so poorly when her POTUS candidate picked up raw votes and % over the previous GOP POTUS candidate suggests she under-performed not just because he was a drag on her but that she had lost a lot of support on her own.

    Now could some people not vote for her because they don’t like Trump. Yep.

    Could some people vote for her and not Trump. Yep.

    Could some people vote for Trump and not her. YEP!!!

    So without raw vote counts to analyze, it’s hard to see exactly why she lost but what is clear is she lost significant support % wise since her 1st election.

  262. Tgca says:

    Me also thinks gender could have played a role here. Ayotte won in 2010 as a female NH senator. By 2016, with both a female POTUS and senate candidate, women may have given her senate opponent more of an edge.

    Also, since 1992 election, NH has gone Dem in every POTUS election except in 2000. So demographic voting in POTUS years may have been against her too.

    I think Ayotte tried to play too cute with the whole anti-Trump and anti-Cruz rhetoric and that may have hurt her with men. I recalled how annoyed I was with her trying to be PC so if I were voting in NH, I would have left the senate vote blank. I’ve done that before and not voted for GOP candidates who annoyed me, especially when they come across as not genuine.

    So bottom line for all you IGORENTS…

    Ayotte could not sell her case and has no one to blame but herself. Better luck next time!!!

  263. mnw says:

    TGCA

    In addition to being ravishing, your analysis is pretty interesting too.

    To what u posted, I would add that Ayotte drew a truly A-list DEM opponent in 2016, so it probably wasn’t just “Kelly bleh,” but “Shaheen tuff,” also.

  264. mnw says:

    It seems likely to me that Ayotte didn’t notice the late Trump surge in NH,* and didn’t do anything to try to capitalize on it.

    *(not sure Trump noticed either)

  265. jason says:

    GREAT news for Wes and jason!

    Lincoln Chafee may run again! As a DEM primary challenger to Sen. Whitehouse. See RRH for all the wunnerful details!”

    We can always count on mnw for true deadender logic.

    Whitehouse has voted the liberal position 100% of the time.

    Chafee would have voted with conservatives maybe 50% of the time, at worst.

    But its better to have the moonbat, because you don’t want a RINO senator from RI.

    Oh, wait.

    That would have been impossible.

    Jason never says such things to me.”

    A 16 oz ribeye grilled to perfection medium rare to rare is ravishing.

    But look, you are, hmmm, huh, probably better looking than Ezequiel Yoder.

  271. Wes says:

    Linc Chafee lost in 2006 because

    A) GWB was dead weight on the whole GOP

    and

    B) Cteve Laffey ran a horrid primary campaign against him that did nothing but make Ocean Staters remember Chafee was an eeeeeeeeeeeeevil Republican.

    After losing, Chafee went off the deep end. I’m not at all sad to know Whitehouse will beat Chafee again.

  272. Wes says:

    Mayour?

    Jason must have gone British on us for a moment.

  273. Wes says:

    Tg, it’s not at all hard to see why Ayotte lost.

    Two words: Aaron Day.

    Dems were united behind a reasonably popular Governor in a state Hillary won. Day split the GOP vote and celebrated like a player who just scored the game-winning touchdown after she lost.

    You needn’t really overanalyze this.

  274. jason says:

    The notion that Ayotte would have won if she had fully embraced Trump is crock of crap. The evidence is exactly the opposite, especially considering she ran against a better candidate than Hillary.

    From an electoral standpoint, its pretty obvious she did the right thing, it just wasn’t enough. But it was enough for her to get almost 8k more votes than Trump.

    I’ll make it easy for the people who want to revise History here. If Ayotte had gone to every Trump rally holding Trump’s hand while screaming MAGA non-stop, she still would have lost.

  275. jason says:

    Mayour?

    I owe you a favour for pointing that out.

  276. Tgca says:

    Wes

    Two things:

    1st, I’m not trying to over analyze why Ayotte lost. I’m just tired of hearing about this the last few days and wanted to set the record straight. We could better utilize this thread to discuss more important things like ABORTION.

    2nd, show some respect for GWB, the 2nd greatest GOP POTUS in the last 20 years.

  277. jason says:

    In Venezuela, inflation quadruples to 18,000% in two months…”

    Proud Obamacon hardest hit.

    But I am sure he will be here to tell us how hyper inflation is good for the economy.

  278. jason says:

    “He just turned you into a blithering moron.”:

    wes is always trying to upstage me….

    I have called NYC a moron for years, but now wes ups the ante with “blithering moron”.

    Which, by the way, is kind of British too..

  279. Wes says:

    You won’t bait me into discussing the absolute, unequivocal, colossal, titanic failure euphemistically called the presidential Administration of George W. Bush today, Tg.

    It’s simply not going to happen.

  280. Tgca says:

    Don’t be so hard on Obama. Sometimes, leaders get it wrong. Learn to put politics aside and give credit where credit is due like when Valerie Jarrett stated this week that Obama should get credit for the economy. So the lowest unemployment rate in decades is due to Obama policies.

    Got it folks? Comprende?

  281. jason says:

    Remember when Obama was President, and bad job numbers were always qualified by the MSM as better than “expected”?

    Well now we get..jobless rate falls to 17 year low, but not as much as “expected”

    Headline:

    “Unemployment rate falls to 3.9% in April, job gains miss expectations”

  282. Tgca says:

    I wouldn’t even try that Wes. I just want you to show some respect for whom most generally agree is the 2nd greatest GOP POTUS in the last 20 years.

  283. jason says:

    2nd, show some respect for GWB, the 2nd greatest GOP POTUS in the last 20 years.”

    Much longer than that.

    I rate him higher than Eisenhower (in my top 5 worst in the century), Ford and his father. Nixon was a great statesman but given his other flaws overall I still prefer GWB. Second only to Reagan.

  284. jason says:

    Trump is not in this evaluation. Let’s see what happens.

  285. jason says:

    the idea that 1000 or so trump supporters heard that ayotte was intentionally snubbing trump and decided to snub ayotte is not at all far-fetched. in fact it is quite likely.”

    Repeating this drivel over and over is not going to make it true.

    Not only is it far fetched, IF it had happened you could then say 8000 Trump haters decided to vote FOR her because she snubbed him, that’s why she got a lot more votes than he did.

    Neither happened. Ayotte was slightly more popular than Trump and that is why she got more votes and came closer to winning.

  286. Tgca says:

    Let’s close down this silly Ayotte discussion. She lost! She just did not bring it home enough to overcome the other 2 females in the race that NH was focused on, a popular enough gov and a serious female POTUS candidate for the 1st time.

    Better luck next time Ayotte.

    …now about that discussion on ABORTION.

    he Connecticut Supreme Court has vacated Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel’s murder conviction and ordered a new trial in connection with a 1975 killing in wealthy Greenwich. The court issued a 4-3 ruling Friday that Skakel’s trial attorney, Michael Sherman, failed to present evidence of an alibi. The decision reversed the court’s previous ruling that reinstated Skakel’s conviction after a lower court had ordered a new trial.”

    No fan of the Kennedy’s but I never agreed with this verdict. Skakel was not charged as a juvenile and then stood trial years later as an adult. In other words because the state too so long he ended up spending a lot more time in jail than he would have been if he had been charged at age 15.

    I think Trump needs to come out loud and clear and make a public statement that only he and his administration are authorized to discuss US foreign policy and that past govt officials have no jurisdiction and are not authorized to discuss US policy on behalf of the US. Their time has passed. He should also embarrass Kerry by having the SOS contact Iran directly and state Kerry does not speak for the US in this regard.

    Elections have consequences and this is one of them. The Dems lost so the GOP gets to set policy for the next 4 years unless Congress overrides Trump, and that will not happen on the Iran deal.

    313. A very high percentage of Americans pay little or no Federal income tax. Of course they see very little

  308. Ron N says:

    We if u go out and ask minimum wage people about tax cut of course they won’t see much tax cut in there pay check. they won’t see it until they do there taxes next years. I know I am middle class and see a couple hundred a month extra now.

  309. Tgca says:

    I run a lucrative cash service business from my house most nights but have not seen the benefits of the Trump tax cuts either.

    Oh wait! My clients don’t withhold taxes from cash payments to me so I’ll see the tax benefit once I file my return and pay less taxes.

    I guess my clientele are real happy they don’t have to withhold taxes and do all that paperwork on the services I provide. Well, that’s only one reason they’re real happy about my services I gather.

  310. Tgca says:

    OMG!

    Mormons moving towards gay marriage…slowly…but moving.

    The survey found that 40 percent of Mormons in the United States supported gay marriage in 2017, up from 27 percent in 2014.

    Among Mormons between the ages of 18-29, the acceptance is 52 percent. That’s up from 43 percent in 2014.

    Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who are 65 and older have the lowest rate of support at 32 percent, according a survey based on about 40,000 phone interviews done last year. That’s up from 18 percent in 2014.

    Nationally, 61 Americans support gay marriage, up from 52 percent in 2013.

  311. Tgca says:

    More on those gay-loving Mormons.

    The Utah-based religion of 16 million worldwide members has held firm to its opposition of gay marriage and homosexual activity while trying to foster an empathetic stance toward LGBTQ people.

    Last year, church leaders updated a website to advise that attraction to people of the same sex is not a sin or a measure of their faithfulness and may never go away. But the church reminded members that being in an intimate same-sex relationship is a sin.

  312. Tgca says:

    I knew there was a reason I liked the gay Mormon trilogy movies titled “The Falls.”

    Google it if you do t know what I’m tawkin about dammit!

  313. Tgca says:

    …and it gets more interesting. Damn homophobic Protestants. Now I know why I don’t get along with my Protestant mom. She thinks her Catholic son should rot in hell.

    Among religious groups included in the survey, only white evangelical Protestants and Jehovah’s Witnesses had lower levels of support for gay marriage. Support was higher among Catholics (about 65 percent), Muslims (51 percent) and Jews (77 percent).

  314. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    319. “More on those gay-loving Mormons.”

    Tgca, there everywhere:

    “OREM — Imagine Dragons lead singer Dan Reynolds isn’t sure how to measure the success of Saturday night’s LoveLoud Festival at helping gay youth and building bridges between Mormons and the LGBTQ community.

    At the very least, he had plenty of help from prominent members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, not to mention a statement of support from the church issued weeks ago in effort to help children: “We applaud the LoveLoud Festival for LGBT youth’s aim to bring people together to address teen safety and to express respect and love for all of God’s children.”

    Steve Young threw Nerf footballs from the stage. Michael McLean sang with his gay son, Jeff. Tom Christofferson spoke as the active LDS gay brother of a Mormon apostle. Students from the BYU Music Dance Theatre program performed.

    And more than 17,000 people filled Brent Brown Ballpark on the campus of Utah Valley University to enjoy a concert headlined by Imagine Dragons and Neon Trees.

    “I know that there’s a community here that’s been waiting to shout and scream as loud as they can about how much they love and accept their LGBTQ youth,” Reynolds said during a press conference before the event. “Today, 17,000-plus people are coming out to say, you know what, we may have different beliefs, we may come from different backgrounds, different religions, different politics, different cultures, different ethnicities, but none of those things matter. We all can agree our LGBTQ youth need us.””

  352. Tina says:

    The report is and has been delayed. However, it is due to the fact that the initial or first report was on McCabe. That report was quite detailed. Also, the Ig is working with Huber the Special prosecutor.

    Once all reports hit, then any indictments will be forthcoming.

  353. Tina says:

    It is a bad day for Mulehead given the leak of the 50 questions.

    The resignation of the mistress, who was on team Mulehead.

    The resignation of the former legal counsel who was demoted to mailroom. A comedy hatchet man.

    The rebuke by the Judge. He called team Mulehead liars.

    Unredacted house report showing that comedy and McCabe testified that Flynn did not lie. Somebody appears to have altered a 302.

    Comedy actually lied to Brett Baer on this.

  355. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    #362- Tina

    Add: Last night, an indicted Russian Co., Concorde, in the Mueller probe surprised everyone including the prosecutors by showing up in Court to defend itself.
    The Mueller prosecutor had not brought the file of the facts which accompanied the indictment. The Judge was miffed and made certain fact and time demands on the prosecution team.

  356. NYCmike says:

    “Everyone here knows what I look like.”

    -Who is the guy with the hat?

  357. Tina says:

    Yes forgot the so called troll farm.

    I believe there is a high chance that Flynn walks.

    A 40 percent chance that mana fort claim is tossed, at least in va.

  358. Tina says:

    The judge exploded because the drat prosecutors said that they had a right to secrecy. They are not above the law, however, as correctly pointed out by the judge.

  359. Tina says:

    e revised scope memo from Rosenstein was dated August 2. But the Mueller ordered no knock raid in the wee hours on Manafort’s home was earlier in late July (26th IIRC). That means Mueller did not have written scope authority to order the raid when it happened. Granting it later is a clear case of ‘ex post facto’ law.

    Found this passage at another site. Explosive if true,

  360. Ron N says:

    364 where was that report at never saw anything about it?

  361. Michael says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if we start to see Trump getting up into a solid +1 to +5 range on Rasmussen now.
    Before it was consistently -5 to +1ish. So it should be interesting to see where the approval rating goes.

  362. Redmen4ever says:

    Reuters: Trump at 49-49 among registered voters.

    Stay thirsty my friends.

  363. Phil says:

    Look, the longer this Mueller thing drags on the less support this “investigation” has with the general electorate and the less popular Mueller is. That’s been the trend in the polls. It’s been a slow trend but a trend just the same. I suspect it will accelerate. In fact, I’m sure of it. After over a year of investigation with no evidence of collusion people in the middle aren’t going to stay on the hook about this forever. They just aren’t.

    Call it Russia Collusion fatigue, but it is there. Trust me. Without some shred of evidence that there was collusion between Trump and Russia the electorate isn’t going blindly follow this forever.

  364. Phil says:

    ….and the polling evidence is clear that other issues – Korea, the economy, illegal immigration, etc are on the rise…despite the media’s breathless coverage of all things Russia. That coverage means less and less the more Mueller come up empty on actual collusion.

  365. NYCmike says:

    “Interesting analysis, imo.”

    -This analysis should trigger several people here at HHR: the ones who think the President is in charge of writing legislation, and the ones who believe shutdowns are “Oh so terrible!”.

  366. NYCmike says:

    Congrats to Albert Pujols on 3,000 hits!

  367. Wes says:

    That is interesting analysis, Chicon, but the author doesn’t provide the best analysis on some points.

    He says the GOP recapture of the Senate in 2014 was “unexpected,” for example. In fact, most pundits had begun predicting the GOP would win the Senate over the summer. Only Chuck Schumer, MD, and the Kossites were openly predicting Dems would hold the Senate by September of that year.

    He also blames only congressional Republicans for the Dems’ rise in support in polling once Trump took office. In fact while the GOP Congress DID hurt itself with inaction both perceived and real, Trump was also a factor, continually stepping on good news cycles with bizarre Twitter rants and looking like a petulant child when by acting presidential at other times, he was actually gaining support.

    In all, parts of the article are well argued and persuasive. Other parts have little if any relationship to reality. I do hope the core analysis is correct, however.

  368. jason says:

    “Everyone here knows what I look like.”

    Translation: people who think signing a bill into law thus actually implementing it means you are responsible for it.

  370. Wobbles says:

    Hello from Pogo Bogo

    Yes, I am back, nothing to do with the news, Internet is terrible here, I didn’t even see Trump is up to 44.4% on the RCP average.

    What I can tell is that last night I hit some of the local bars and EVERYONE is talking about Roy Moore.

    In fact one bar did a poll on who was the greatest attorney of all time and Gloria Allred barely beat out Perry Mason. Vinny Laguardia Gambini came in third and a local named Asoese Ne’igalomeatiga came in fourth. Bitter came in 87th but he would have been 43rd if I had voted for him.

    Well, ta-ta, and Go Mueller.

  371. Tgca says:

    My thoughtful and insightful analysis of the poll in 344 shows that in this poll of registered (not likely) voters overall Trump is strong in 5 key areas that matter most

    Economy @57%
    Jobs @59%
    ISIS @58%
    Taxation @52%
    Immigration @50%

    …and he’s approaching majority approval on these 3 areas

    Foreign Policy @48%
    Trade @49%
    Congress Dealings @47%

    Not bad for a guy being bombarded by multiple enemies 24/7. If he had fair and balanced opponents, my guess he would be mid to high 50s overall.

  372. Tina says:

  373. janz says:

    Good ad for MI’s John James. I plan on contributing to his campaign.

  374. janz says:

    Guiliane’s poor performance on Hannity seems to be competing with all the good news generated for Trump last week.

  375. mnw says:

    a couple of observations:

    1) The real danger stalking the DEMs’ beloved blue wave is, the longer the witch hunt goes on, the more likely the “enthusiasm gap” starts to shrink, ALONG WITH their already-shrinking generic lead.

    2) The average joe may not know that Trump’s plan cut his tax bill, but he DOES know that his chronically underemployed brother-in-law is working full time again, for the first time since Saigon fell.

  376. janz says:

    The blue wave is calculated more by the unending vitriol generated by a rabid press and the leftist Dem base. What is not under consideration are those quiet voters who are fed up with the dishonest antics and behavior of these people during the past year. The best way they can register their disgust is to vote against them.

  377. Bitterlaw says:

    I am going to my law school reunion. Kelly Ayotte will not be there because her children have too many sports activities this weekend. Good for her. Losing was a blessing for her and her family.

  378. Redmen4ever says:

    Thank “God” [the emergence of order out of chaos] FiveThirtyEight unskews the polls.

  379. Tgca says:

    Janz

    I totally disagree with you. I am so fed up with the dishonesty of the press, investigators, politicians, etc too but no one would ever accuse me of being quiet.

  380. Tgca says:

    Too bad Ayotte is not going to be at the reunion. Bitter can show her the HHR site and inform her about the in-depth analysis all here did on her loss. I’m sure she would appreciate that.

  381. janz says:

    Tgca, You may be inclined to publicly voice your opinions and dissent — which is a good trait. However, many are not, especially when dealing with the monumental disfavor and push-back given by the left to those who don’t share their ideology. This is the block of voters who go unnoticed and uncounted in much of the polling we see. However, come election day, it is kind of like “revenge day” for them, and this is when their proclivities are registered.

  382. Cash Cow TM says:

    I hope some of you noticed how the press is starting to back track on their blue wave scenario.

    It’s admiral that folks can start a business from a hobby, a skill, or just a pleasure. I think Bitter could use his talents to get out of the legal arena and start a business too that would add less stress to his life. Since you like going to flower shows, perhaps your calling is a florist. There can’t be much stress in snipping roses and arranging flowers I would think.

    Swamp is going to have a challenge proving that the findings involving manaforts tax and banking issues were due to Russian collision, when he was being investigated for those same matters in 2005.

    Swampstein was stupid to continue the counterintelligence investigation from 2015.

  395. Tgca says:

    405 Tina

    I saw that. Not actually a BOOM!!! but i think they called Muellers bluff. The indictment of these 13 Russians and associated companies was all window dressing to make it look like the Mueller team were really doing some important work. It was good for headlines but my guess is they knew it was a dead end. Now the attorneys of those indicted are challenging Mueller for discovery and his team is trying to use stalling tactics, and the judge said NO!!!

    BUSTED B*TCHES!!!

  396. Tina says:

    Yeah a dead end and sloppy on their behalf.

    They wanted cheap points thinking that nobody would contest them.

    The transcripts of yesterday’s hearing is out and the Reagan appointee is not buying the sheot that they are selling.

  397. Tina says:

    The judge in the Flynn matter is even “worse” for Fuhrer Mulehead. He is anti gubment when it comes to prosecutor shenanigans.

    Poor Fuhrer Mulehead.

  398. Tgca says:

    395. Janz

    I was being cynical. Of course, many keep their mouths shut. A few folks in my office who were not Hillary supporters were low key about their Trump support because some of their leaders were Hillary lovers who assumed she had it in the bag. Oh well, poop happens.

  399. Tina says:

    Have the g men aided and abetted by saw Yates charged Francois Kerry with a Logan act violation?

  400. Tina says:

    Given mule heads implosion, trump should not do any interview.

    The attorneys should insist that Mulehead provide information detailing crimes committed by trump vis a vis the muh Russian hoax.

    Mulehead cannot subpoena nor could he indict since doc policy states that he cannot.

  401. Tgca says:

    My gut feeling is that folks are now going to see what many of us believed, that these prosecutors are often overzealous and will go to any means to win, even if means threatening, intimidating, and lying. Now they are getting some bad publicity and the Dems are in a position where they’re going to have to take sides of Mueller or judges.

    Once the cat is out of the bag, it’s hard to ignore it.

  402. Tina says:

    And more bad news.

    Flynn was illegally wiretap.m that call that he made to the Russian counterpart was perfectly legal. With that call, Comedy, who has now lied again, had drat McCabe, send two FBI officials to interview Flynn. The problem with that is the no attorney from the nsa sat in. They used storm trooper like tactics to get the interview.

    The judge will rip apart the illegal wiretap and the FBI interfering with another me ever of the excutive branch.

    Hopefully, there is no admission that McCabe changed Flynns 302, as rumoured.

  403. Tgca says:

    I think what the Trump and GOP tawkin’ points should be is that ”now that qualified judges” are questioning the integrity and tactics of the Mueller charges…”

    They should precede these or like words over and over in their discussions at every event so it becomes well known by every American. Dems do similar all the time so GOP has to be aggressive. Sooner or later it will sow doubt in half of the population.

    It’s like headlines or a billboard. If you hear it or see it over and over, you start to think of it, and that will cast doubt on Mueller for many.

  404. Tina says:

    The Drats have charged the Reagan judge as interfering in a politically charged matter,

    Yes, a judge interfering in a matter.

    Next, they will accuse him of being a Russian not.

  405. Tina says:

    Good point. On that tgca.

    Also, continue to insist the the investigation is a hoax.

  406. Tgca says:

    McCain is at it again. What a fool and media attention seeket this guy is.

    He says he regrets choosing Palin and should have chosen Lieberman.

    Guess what McCain? Many of us REGRET choosing you as the 2008 nominee.

    Sorry Mac! You would have lost a helluva lot more GOP support putting Lieberman on your ticket than having Palin…and you would not have picked up much if any of the libs who saw Lieberman as a traitor.

    It’s like when John Kerry toyed with including McCain as his running mate in 2004. Like most Dems would have supported that. Ha!

  407. Tgca says:

    Yep Tina. GOP has got to learn to be on the offensive. Make it a sound bite that becomes universally known.

    Now let’s see how many GOP Senators are willing to sign on legislation to protect Mueller now that 3 separate judges in 3 separate indictments have challenged the integrity or tactics of the Mueller team.

    I said it very early on, Mueller would regret taking this on. I believe he thought Trump and Company were a bunch of buffoons and this would be easy slam dunk and a nice notch on his belt to close out his career and cement his reputation. Ha! Well, Trump is no Nixon. Now nearly half the nation is not only against Mueller and questioning the FBI but the courts are now starting to weigh in and that will raise more doubt and inflict damage upon the Mueller team.

    Muellers reputation is taking a big hit. He should have stayed retired. This is what happens when one gets greedy and arrogant.

    Devin Nunes just stated on FOX and Friends that the House Intelligence Committee’s recent subpoena to the Dept. of Justice for documents regarding the H. Clinton e-mail scandal has been ignored and then the DOJ informed the Committee that it will not comply.
    Nunes said that probably this week, the Committee and then the full House will vote to place AG Jeff Sessions in Contempt of Congress for failure to comply.
    IMHO, Sessions,a wonderful Senator, is truly a “swamp creature”, has little fire in his belly to challenge the entrenced system and has ceded control of the DOJ to others.
    He should resign after the midterms,and hopefully, run for his old Alabama Senate seat in 2020.
    Sessions is a very decent man.

  416. dblaikie says:

    If the Congress stays in GOP hands after the mid-terms Sessions and Rosenstein will be gone no matter what. So he should resign before he is fired.

  417. dblaikie says:

    The biggest joke of the week is Adam Schiff coming out and saying Dems shouldn’t run on impeachment. But my question is, what issues can they run on? Getting rid of the tax cut? The good economy? I suppose the best issue they have without impeachment is, “we don’t like his tweets.”

    The truth is the die has already been cast. They started running on impeachment the day Trump was sworn in. That is why they slow walk appointments. Every action they have taken in the last 18 months has been with impeachment in mind.

  418. Tgca says:

    As far as alienating the other side, they have already done that. Now, as they continue to get more and more angry and more insane, they are in the process of alienating those in the middle….and yes, they are so isolated and insulated in their own culture they don’t get it and never will.

    I didn’t choose him. I supported Giuliani.

    I think he right is about Palin NOW, but at the time I thought it was a good pick.

    A woman, a successful governor, photogenic, a good contrast to the “too old, too out of touch” image the MSM pegged him with.

    The MSM destroyed her early with unfair hit interviews and questions they would never have subjected a Democrat to. Yet, she should have been prepared for that.

    Later, I came to realize she was actually a dingbat that would never be prepared. Thus, McCain should have picked someone else. I doubt he would have gotten fewer votes with Lieberman, but would he have gotten more?

    Finally, if McCain picked the wrong VP, it’s on him. No free lunch.

    Although, McCain refers to his recent commentary as liberating, because he’s at the end of life’s rope, it’s primarily tarnishing the value of what has been accomplished during his 81 years. Perhaps a frail, failing mind now dominates and incapacitates an ability to differentiate what is important and what is not. IMO, being with your family, mending fences would, or at least should, be paramount during the waning time of one’s life. However, for McCain, he would rather focus on his own bitterness, personal rivalries, grudges, and getting back at those he dislikes even after his death. All I can say is “what a sad man he has become.”

  442. Tgca says:

    I don’t care if McCain was a hero or not. You can be both a hero and a corrupt scumbag fool too like McCain.

    Heroes do bad things too. How many heroes came back from wars to commit horrible crimes. Let’s not forget Timothy McVeigh was a decorated war veteran and considered a hero too. Ask the people of Oklahoma if they think his decorated hero status means squat to them.

    I’m not saying McCain was a murderer, I’m saying he was a corrupt, self-centered scumbag tool of the left who cared only for himself and his latest actions show that nothing has changed.

  443. janz says:

    I don’t know how many people are like me, however, I find no intrigue or appeal in enlarging a porn/prostitutes status unless she does something really worthwhile. Having a one-night-stand with a rich guy, who eventually become president, doesn’t fall into that category. Consequently, whoever or whatever show promotes someone like that loses me and any inclination I may have to watch or listen to them.

  444. Tgca says:

    Janz

    I disagree. This was always what McCain was like. Nothing changed in the man. An opportunist tool of the left who made a career capitalizing on his war record and his family connections while hypocritically lambasting others. Had his father and grandfather not been admirals, no one would ever know who Mccain was…it’s that simple!

    He is not being liberated. He was doing this chit going back decades. It’s the reason he got lukewarm welcome from the GOP in 2008 and many conservatives did not trust him.

    This fool does not realize that he will not be remembered fondly by either the right or left once he departs.

  445. Tgca says:

    When someone does a tour called “Let’s make America horny again” and is invited to be on a major TV program to promote herself for money she has no credibility as a human being. I feel sorry for her kid. I’m sure parent day at school must be a blast for her daughter.

    Kid 1
    My daddy is a fireman and saves lives

    Kid 2
    My mommy is a teacher and educates kids

    Stormys daighter
    My mom is a wh*re and satisfies men for money

  446. Tgca says:

    I’m actually surprised the authorities have not stepped in to determine if her daughter is in a safe environment. If in any way her child is subject to her mother’s work in her care surroundings, that clearly is not a safe place for a child.

    Hey mommy, what’s this movie in the DVR?

    Don’t touch mommy’s work honey. I told you it’s only for adults.

  447. Tgca says:

    Sorry if I seem so mean on Stormy but I grew up around many women like her who either used their kids or put them in dangerous situations. Not every mother is a protective caring parent with a nurturing ability or looking out for the best interests of their children.

    Society likes to get all over the case of men, and rightfully so for not doing the manly thing but then make excuses for the women who love to play the victim of circumstance cards. I’ve come across numerous women who were wh*res and let others harm their kids physically, emotionally, and even sexually so I have no sympathy for most wh*res.

    My mother went through her wh*re stage in her mid 20s and hanging out with a couple of guys for company and sex. Though there was only 1or 2, she gave herself willingly to them over her kids. I remember on at least 2 occasions being around 4 or 5 yo kid left to play in the apartment while she went in the bedroom with one of two men in her life in the mid-afternoon, one of these men who later became an extremely abusive stepfather.

    So any one that tells me I’m a chauvinist or disrespectful to women for calling out a wh*re can GFY!

    Tgca,
    To many, especially those in the military, McCain was granted irrevocable respect. His POW years were especially prominent in his ability to win over votes to become a Senator. In fact it was this slice of life (being a 5-year POW) that Trump stepped on, causing many to then become disgusted with Trump.

    Nonetheless, I believe what may overshadow McCain’s enduring hero status will be how he has politically devolved, casting irrational, smug votes, like the one against Obamacare disillusionment, and generally throwing stones and casting aspersions that spread over into his final funeral requests. Petty, vindictive, small-minded will now be a big part of his legacy.

    Janz

    Again, I agree with you. No one is questioning McCains POW status and what he endured but that does not make him an honorable or decent man. One can be both a POW and a villain. History is full of folks who served with great distinction and honor but went on to do dastardly deeds elsewhere in their life.

    I think history shows McCain was always this vindictive combative person and it’s not a product of his current illness.

    To let McCain off the hook then we have to let thousands of others off the hook too because they once did honorable or good deeds in their life. We should excuse Tim Mcveigh and also every Vietnam vet that came back who abused their wives and children, some in horrific manners. Sorry! That does not cut it for me anymore than we excuse the hating thug or goes on to brutally rape and murder folks because he had a horrible childhood of abuse. There’s always a line that must separate being a victim and victimizing others.

  456. Chicon says:

    Agree that one can be a POW/war hero, and be a putz. Both can be true.

    McCain is the former. Whether he’s the latter is a personal decision. He’s frustrated me as a politician for years. He’s too unpredictable for me. I’m not going to hold against him things he says or does while dying of brain cancer.

    I don’t think it’s the cancer tawkin’ with McCain, I think it’s the vindictive, bitter, selfish, combative personality tawkin’, in other words, the real John McCain. Let’s stop making excuses for his behavior. Have respect for his military service, compassion for his POW endurement, sympathy for his medical situation, and accountability for his nastiness as a human being that goes back decades and the reason many conservatives either did not support him or gave him lukewarm support in 2008.

    Meanwhile, Obama has become a legend in his own mind: From CNN:

    “After I left office, what I realized is the Obama Foundation could eventually create a platform for young up-and-coming leaders, both in the United States and around the world,” Obama said at a conference in Tokyo in March. “If I could do that effectively, then, you know, I would create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas, or, you know, the next group of people who could take that baton in that relay race that is human progress and continue to build on the work that we have done. So that’s really going to be my focus.”
    A million Obamas. It’s one of the most ambitious goals ever for a former American president.”

    One of the worst presidents in U.S. history, whose legacy was repudiated by both parties in 2016, has a messiah complex. Someone needs to remind him he has all but been forgotten.

  472. Wes says:

    I didn’t vote for McCain, Tg. Since Bush was averaging 29-33% approval in late 2008, McCain was always going to lose. He had as much chance of winning as Landon had had.

    That said, Landon suffered the fourth worst popular vote loss and worst EC loss in US history. McCain at least carried 22 states and stayed above 100 EVs while not taking the GOP so far down it would take them decades to recover in Congress.

    I’m not endorsing McCain or his pitiful campaign. I’m just saying Landon was worse.

    I don’t have a favorite in the IN GOP primary, but I’d be curious to know who u decide to vote for.

    Hawley & Greitens

    I have mixed feelings about giving Greitens the bum’s rush. I feel like Soros won a round. I voted for Greitens in the primary & again in the GE, of course. Based on the info available at the time, I have no regrets.

    I suppose Greitens’ ouster might be a good thing for Hawley– only in the sense that it would remove a distraction. The MSM would find a way to make Hawley complicit in Greitens’ perversions somehow.

    they all went to my alma mater Wabash College.

    I was leaning toward Rokita….he has typically been an in your face candidate, and went all in early in this campaign as the “Trump guy”.

    But, both he and Messer have DUIs in college…..thy both have “scandal” in their past that can be exploited…. (Messer’s wife has a 6 figure do nothing portion with a small city; Rokita has some history being an jerk with subordinates…and local media hate him).

    so I’ll probably go with Braun. I think he is best positioned to take on “Boy Scout” Donnelly and beat him.

    Either of those three will be equally reliable imo.
