    Deceptions pass a will of the senate to remain in crapistan.

    Notice how quickly Mitchie and the gop-e move when they want to,

  2. Tina says:

    Is this Rino against all NEs?

    GOP ME Sen Collins on if Trump declares a national emergency: I am concerned about it. I think it’s of dubious Constitutionality

  3. Phil says:

    Damn, another National Democratic poll on the Democratic Presidential candidates.

    What a waste of time. It will be Kamala Harris and she will have the nomination wrapped up by July of 2020 at the latest – probably by the beginning of June.

  4. Wes says:

    I just had whiny, sniveling pansy leftist try to tell me CNN made a “mistake” by claiming Northam is a Republican.

  5. Cash Cow TM says:

    Put all the D candidates in a bag and shake ’em up and then add all their common sense together and you are still in single digits.

    Walt told me he thinks the whole world has lost their collective f-ing mind.

    After reading DRUDGE, I told him I sorta agree…

  6. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    3. “What a waste of time. It will be Kamala Harris and she will have the nomination wrapped up by July of 2020 at the latest.”

    Maybe, but in these crazy times, anything can happen. Biden could surprise us, as could another candidate. I would not place a bet on any election scenario for 2020 now.

  7. Bitterlaw says:

    SDC – Phil does not believe in elections. It’s all about demographics and identity politics for him. If a Hispanic lesbian in a wheelchair was running, he would predict her as the nominee because she fits 4 groups and Harris only has 2.

  8. Big Joe says:

    “Biden Leads National Primary Race By 13%”

    Interesting, but there is no such thing as a “National Primary.”

    Big Joe

  9. jason says:

    Take Biden’s lead with a grain of salt.

    He has the most name recognition by far and that is why he is leading now.

    Personally, I am supporting Pete Buttigieg, he would have as much chance of getting elected as someone named Barack Hussein Obama.

  10. jason says:

    I just had whiny, sniveling pansy leftist try to tell me CNN made a “mistake” by claiming Northam is a Republican.”

    Wow.

    Do you think he would be interested in a not too old, not too sick, not too lame llama at an excellent price?

  11. Messy says:

    5. Jimmy Carter was doing worse in the polls at this stage in 1975, and he won the nomination. So was Michael Dukakis in 1987.

  12. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    #11- Messy
    1) Should the VA Governor resign over the unseemly Confederate photographs? Why?
    2) Do you support the VA Abortion Bill that was killed in Committee? Why?

  13. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Moshem at RRH:

    Popcorn for breakfast.

    “A California woman accusing Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault has hired Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team – Katz, Marshall and Banks – and is consulting with them about next steps, according to a source close to the legal team.”

  14. jason says:

    I don’t know about that.

    That “team” was not successful in derailing the Kavanaugh nomination, which after all was their only objective.

  15. jason says:

    Contrary to wes, I don’t think Biden will get the nomination.

    The moonbats control the party now, and they don’t want Biden.

    In fact, I am not even sure Biden will run, it’s a grueling effort and there are no guarantees he will prevail.

  16. jason says:

    What is interesting is that so far about 45% of Dems want guys with a combined age of 153 (157 by 2020)

  17. jason says:

    Heh..

    Streiff at Redstate:

    “The irony of the guy who made the Charlottesville mess a campaign issue and labeled Ed Gillespie a racist being accused of racism by his own lieutenant governor is nearly too much to bear.”

  18. Wes says:

    Fairfax’s accuser hires Christine Ford’s law firm.

    Fascinating.

  19. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Today’s Rasmussen(less) Poll should bring Robbie back to HHR meaner and more deranged than ever:

    http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/trump_administration/trump_approval_index_history

    Trump Approval/ Disapproval- 48/51, respectively!

  20. dblaikie says:

    It seems to me that the dems in Virginia are imploding before our eyes. Now I am no expert with Virginia, but appears that the dem juggernaut has struck an iceberg. It is bad to have to choose between a baby killing racist and a sexual predator.

  21. dblaikie says:

    Wormtongue never posts when things are going decent for Trump and the gop. However I suspect he will be back tonight, dominating this board in an effort to trash tonight’s speech. And doesn’t matter how good or bad the speech will be.

  22. Messy says:

    20. Ras hasn’t been anywhere near accurate in years.

  23. jason says:

    Amoral Scumbag hates bad press about Democrats.

    Fortunately for him it hardly ever happens.

    He knows this distraction will blow over.

  24. Messy says:

    12. No on both. They won’t let me post anything more sheep.

  25. jason says:

    Ras hasn’t been anywhere near accurate in years”

    This is of course a lie.

    Rasmussen came the closest to the 2016 election result, even Nate Silverhack was big enough to recognize it:

    ‘For instance, Rasmussen Reports deserves a lot of credit for its final, national poll of the 2016 presidential election, which had Hillary Clinton ahead by 2 percentage points, almost her exact margin of victory in the popular vote”

    And Amoral Scumbag and other hypocrites are the first to trip all over themselves to post a RAS poll that is not good for Trump or Rs.

  26. NYCmike says:

    Heh!

    Nice find on Booker, Wes!

  27. jason says:

    I guess Booker is saying you should be asking this question when you hire a law clerk?

  28. jason says:

    Fairfax seems more concerned about who leaked rather than the charge itself.

    And he is still making friends among other Dems.

    “Fairfax softens on claiming Northam is behind the sexual assault claims, but hints in second gaggle that Richmond mayor @LevarStoney – his would-be rival for governor in ’21 – had a role.”

    Stoney says it’s a lie and offensive.

  29. jason says:

    Northam now has little incentive to resign, since to do so would put an alleged sexual predator in office.

    This is good for the VAGOP, the longer this goes on the better.

  30. NYCmike says:

    “This is good for the VAGOP, the longer this goes on the better.”

    -Exactly why a person should never throw in the towel before any election…….most politicians, simply by the nature of the job, have to have some form of vice that can, at any time, undermine their desired electoral success.

  31. CG says:

    Yeah, this is still going to be out there in 2021 causing Republicans to win the Governorship….. sure.

    What would be good for the VAGOP is to stop nominating clowns like Corey Stewart and to get people like him out of the party.

    As for Justin Fairfax, without anything additional that we do not know, there seems to be no actual evidence to suggest he did anything wrong. If this were a conservative being accused in such a way, regardless of how the media behaved, people here would be saying it was wrong.

  32. CG says:

    Within two weeks or so, Northam will have resigned, Fairfax will be Governor, and it’s unlikely that anything is going to found to label him a “sexual predator.”

  33. CG says:

    Northam deserves to go. It’s his own fault. As much for the way he behaved on Friday and Saturday than whatever disgusting photo he took or approved of 35 years ago. There’s also the matter of him publicly endorsing infanticide.

    Yes, Fairfax is a liberal Democrat, but absent something we do not know about patterns of behavior, etc, it is pretty hasty to infer he is a “sexual predator” , just as it was when that was said about Brett Kavanaugh. People on the right should strive to be better than those on the left.

  34. Messy says:

    26. But since then, a period of over two years, they’ve changed their model and have been consistently wrong.

  35. CG says:

    Rasmussen was the most accurate in 2016 in terms of the popular vote and absolutely the worst in 2018 in terms of gaging the national Congressional landscape.

    Both are true.

    Trump will bounce around between 43-48 in their tracking poll probably until the 2020 election (absent a major negative development) and it won’t mean much. Every other pollster will show at least a slightly lower number and the 2018 exist poll showed a lower JA for Trump than what Rasmussen had.

  36. CG says:

    It was stated on here not long ago that Utah was firmly behind Trump and that Utahns were angry at their new Senator Mitt Romney, over his Trump Op-Ed.

    That clearly does not appear to be the case:

    https://www.sltrib.com/news/politics/2019/01/30/most-utahns-say-theyd/

  37. NYCmike says:

    “As for Justin Fairfax, without anything additional that we do not know, there seems to be no actual evidence to suggest he did anything wrong. If this were a conservative being accused in such a way, regardless of how the media behaved, people here would be saying it was wrong.”

    -I did NOT see anyone here call for his ouster over these accusations.

    Some have noticed that the WAPO refused to investigate at first, even though there was more information given to them by the accuser than Kavanaugh’s accuser.

    I would also mention that the WAPO, AFTER Fairfax gave a response over the weekend, has started digging, because Fairfax misrepresented their statement about why they did not go forward.

  38. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    A Jussie Smollett update. Can you say HOAX?!!!

    JUST IN: ‘Two persons of interest’ in relation to Jussie Smollett ‘attack’ in Chicago turn out to be homeless, were never near Smollett. Smollett also didn’t have a broken rib as he claimed. He also still refuses to give his phone to police, despite claiming it has evidence on it.

  39. NYCmike says:

    Article which “CG” linked to:

    “That said, Jowers said whether Utahns vote against Trump depends on who else is on the ticket — something the poll did not address.

    “The main thing that Trump has in his favor with Utah is that in a vacuum we don’t like him a lot,” Jowers said. “But against [Vermont Independent Sen.] Bernie Sanders, his popularity skyrockets.””

    -It looks like Utahns, at the least, know how to pick the lesser of two evils, as opposed to our resident “moral authority”.

  40. CG says:

    Trump received well under 50% of the vote in Utah in 2016 and if he carries the state in 2020, will likely have to do the same.

  41. NYCmike says:

    Trump 2016 = 45% – 6 Electoral Votes

    Bush 2004 = 71% – 5 Electoral Votes.

    🙂

  42. jason says:

    I see Corey is lying about what I wrote again, just can’t help himself.

    What I said was since Fairfax is now accused of being a sexual predator (I specifically used the word “alleged”) Northam has another excuse not to resign.

    As for Fairfax doing “nothing wrong” that remains to be seen, but if you use the parameter that was used against Kavanaugh and other Rs, the Dems would certainly consider him guilty (you have to believe the women, remember, they never lie).

    My personal opinion is that IF the only evidence against Fairfax is a “he said she said” about what happened in a hotel room “after they started consensual kissing”, I certainly would not advocate for ruining his personal or political life.

    Corey can GFH.

  43. NYCmike says:

    Trump 2016 = 45% – 6 Electoral Votes

    George W Bush 2004 = 71% – 5 Electoral Votes.

    ?

    JEB!2016 – 0 Electoral Votes

  44. NYCmike says:

    From Instapundit:

    “WHY IS HE TALKING OVER A BLACK WOMAN?” Some Democrats Are Mad at Bernie Sanders for Daring to Give SOTU Rebuttal—After Stacey Abrams Gives Hers. “For each of the last three years, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has delivered his own response to President Trump’s State of the Union speech. Tonight he will do the same. But this year, some Democrats have a problem with it. That’s because the party chose Stacey Abrams, who recently lost her bid for governor of Georgia, to deliver the official Democratic response.”

    My fave lefty take: “We already have to listen to one old white male traitor advance the Kremlin’s interests, we don’t need two.”

    2020 is going to be lit.

  45. NYCmike says:

    #43 & #45 are in reference to Utah.

  46. NYCmike says:

    “It was stated on here not long ago that Utah was firmly behind Trump and that Utahns were angry at their new Senator Mitt Romney, over his Trump Op-Ed.”

    -That specific comment would be nice, by the way.

    If “It was stated on here..” that should be available for you to find.

    Personally, I do NOT recall those sentiments being relayed on here, by anyone.

    Could this be another one of your quickly-becoming-standard-method-of-operations “interpretations”?

  47. CG says:

    I fail to see any relation as to how it is “good for Republicans” if false allegations are being made against Fairfax.

    jason, the same person who dismissed the clear pattern of behavior and evidence against Roy Moore, simply wants this to be true about Fairfax.

  48. CG says:

    SDC claimed it about Utah.

  49. NYCmike says:

    #49 & #51 show the absolute hatred that a supposed G-d-fearing individual holds in his heart.

    Also, when Ginsburg is actually seen in public, and a picture is taken, as opposed to being reported, then I will believe she is fully recovered.

    I also hold out hope that she recovers fully, and retires, as soon as possible.

  50. CG says:

    So, you think her son is lying? Will you claim it is a body double then?

    He said she is walking a mile a day and meets twice a week with a personal trainer.

    I don’t think jason could walk a mile if it was into the waiting open arms of Donald Trump.

  51. NYCmike says:

    “SDC claimed it about Utah.”

    -I have read several comments about Utah by SDC.

    I do NOT recall one which says what you say he said.

    I could be wrong, it’s happened once or twice over the last several decades.

  52. jason says:

    I know this is not politically correct and someone will say I am ok with sexual abuse if a woman goes into a hotel room with someone they don’t really know (as was the case here), which is not what I am saying.

    In this case, Fairfax said he needed to go to his room to “get some papers”. The woman could have said ok I will wait in the lobby, or in the hallway.

    What I am saying is that going into a hotel room with a man you don’t really know is not good judgment, I know plenty of women who wouldn’t do it.

    Again, I am not saying she was “asking for it” or that now Fairfax was entitled to abuse her, she wasn’t and he wasn’t, but I think a little common sense doesn’t hurt.

  53. NYCmike says:

    “So, you think her son is lying? Will you claim it is a body double then?

    He said she is walking a mile a day and meets twice a week with a personal trainer.”

    -I did not think about her son.

    I did not claim it was a body double.

    “He said..” means ZERO to me, especially in this age of Iphones and ability to record live events.

    Put out a picture and/or a video.

    Nobody at the concert took a picture??

    Strikes me as odd…..

  54. NYCmike says:

    We will find out tonight……if she stays up thru Trump’s whole speech, we will damn well know it is an imposter!

  55. jason says:

    I fail to see any relation as to how it is “good for Republicans” if false allegations are being made against Fairfax. ”

    I didn’t say false allegations are good for Republicans, I said the disarray among VA Dems over the whole trainwreck is good for Rs.

  56. CG says:

    They had a consensual encounter in a hotel room during the DNC. (John Edwards, the guy Fairfax was working for turned out to be the true scumbag). It happens. If she said no, he had a duty to oblige. There’s no corroboration of any sort that such a thing did not happen.

  57. CG says:

    The AP reporter reported seeing her at the concert last night. He said photography was not allowed.

    It was perhaps a body double or he is perhaps willing to throw his entire career away over falsely claiming to see RBG.

    Maybe she will do a backflip down the aisle of the U.S. House tonight to put her “deathers” at ease, but if you were her, would you really show up at 9 pm to watch Donald Trump? Since the days of Clinton, most Justices have skipped the SOTU.

  58. CG says:

    Maybe she will be there tonight, but I doubt it. She has no obligation to be there. There may be 1 or 2 Justices that show up.

    If people are covering up her “death”, that would include the Supreme Court itself, the Chief Justice, and all of its staff. I doubt that’s happening. The next time oral arguments are presented at the Court, she will probably be there.

  59. jason says:

    I don’t care how many people in Utah like Romney or Trump.

    Trump won easily by almost 20 pts against 3 other candidates in 2016, and Hillary only got a quarter of the vote.

    I have no doubt that without McMullin or Johnson in the race Trump will win Utah by at least 2 to 1 against any Dem.

    Romney’s scummy, self serving, gratuitous and dishonest personal attack on Trump in order to ingratiate himself with the MSM and get himself a few headlines and kudos from other morons who can’t accept the results of the election has made me lose all respect for him.

    And nobody can ever accuse me of being a Romney hater, I have defended him here through thick and thin for years and years.

    In the end, he is just another scumbag politician who put his personal vanity ahead of everything else. Sad.

  60. jason says:

    I believe RBG had a body double as much as I believe the MSM stories about Melania’s body double.

    Garbage.

  61. NYCmike says:

    HHR Jeopardy

    Category: Sore losers in History

    Alex Trebek: ONE Republican who doesn’t want Ruth Bader Ginsburg to retire, as that will give DJT one more opportunity to pick a conservative-minded jurist.

    Contestant: Who is “CG”?

  62. CG says:

    I said they all can retire as soon as he was elected, assuming you can trust him. I really don’t trust him.

    The bottom line is that she is under no obligation to retire. It’s her choice. Whether she does or not, I hope she lives to be 120, as I do for the other 8.

  63. NYCmike says:

    “I believe RBG had a body double as much as I believe the MSM stories about Melania’s body double.”

    -Here at HHR, other than “CG”, nobody has made that assertion.

    jason, Don’t fall for his b*llsh*t.

  64. CG says:

    Trump wouldn’t theoretically pick her replacement, at least we should pray not.

    If they follow the same precedent, it will be someone picked for him, by people who are far smarter and more principled.

  65. jason says:

    I have to agree with Corey that if RBG doesn’t show up for SOTU it doesn’t mean she is dying.

    Frankly, in her shoes I wouldn’t go because of all the scrutiny.

  66. NYCmike says:

    “They had a consensual encounter in a hotel room during the DNC.”

    -The Omnipotent One has spoken!

    Wes, you got NOTHING on this character!

  67. CG says:

    #69 (no irony), do you have any reason to believe that did not happen?

  68. NYCmike says:

    “I have to agree with Corey that if RBG doesn’t show up for SOTU it doesn’t mean she is dying.”

    -My statement about her showing up was only intended as a joke about her falling asleep a couple years ago.

    NO, I do not expect her to show tonight.

  69. CG says:

    71. Do you think she is dead or far sicker than is being let on?

    Be honest.

  70. jason says:

    rump wouldn’t theoretically pick her replacement, at least we should pray not.

    If they follow the same precedent, it will be someone picked for him, by people who are far smarter and more principled.”

    Zzzzzz…. no SCOTUS judge is picked by ANY President without consultation.

    Ridiculous. Especially considering Trump has made excellent judicial appointments, especially for SCOTUS.

  71. NYCmike says:

    “#69 (no irony), do you have any reason to believe that did not happen?”

    -Do I have any reason to get in the way of Democrats fighting each other?

    As far as I know, a Republican is NOT responsible for the accusation. If someone has an issue with the Lt Gov, and Republicans are not the ones making the accusation, I’ll just sit back and wait for the media to finally do their job……report the facts to the public.

  72. CG says:

    Trump doesn’t know who any of these people are. He wanted his sister and Rudy. He wanted to know “what can I get out of” any pick.

    Let the Federalist Society pick again for him if it comes to it. Regardless, Trump is weaker politically than he has ever been, so McConnell is going to have to do it all himself again.

  73. CG says:

    If bitter and jealous Democrats are trying to unfairly take down Fairfax (which he seems to be implying) than Republicans should be on the side of the truth, as they always should and shouldn’t be jumping in on this whole “Well, Northam should stay now..” thing.

    Northam has disgraced himself and lost the ability to govern. He has to go. If something in the future turns up showing Fairfax lied, and did something horrible, he can go too.

  74. CG says:

    Whatever problems Northam, Fairfax, or any other Democrat has there, including in-fighting, it’s not going to “help” the Republicans be competitive in the state again until they reject the Corey Stewart neo-Confederacy contingent.

    That’s far more important to do.

  75. NYCmike says:

    “71. Do you think she is dead or far sicker than is being let on?”

    -As I have stated MANY times, I hope she make a complete recovery and retires, as I can’t help but like the feisty old codger, despite her judgments.

    I do NOT think she is dead. And as for her health, I have no idea what is going on inside her. I hope she has healed completely. I do not wish cancer or such ailments on law-abiding folks.

    Other than that, you are an idiot for even having to ask such questions.

  76. CG says:

    Fairfax becoming Governor now means that VA would hold a special election this November for Lt. Governor.

    If you want Virginia Republicans to have a chance at “redemption”, that should be what is focused on.

    We know how much Wes likes Barbara Comstock for instance.

  77. NYCmike says:

    “Trump doesn’t know who any of these people are. He wanted his sister and Rudy. He wanted to know “what can I get out of” any pick.”

    🙂

    You can’t make this cr*p up!

  78. CG says:

    So why not just take the Court at its word in regards to the status of her health? Why even consider a “conspiracy?”

  79. NYCmike says:

    “So why not just take the Court at its word in regards to the status of her health? Why even consider a “conspiracy?””

    -Easy.

    Trust, but verify.

    Stop getting your panties in a knot, sister.

  80. CG says:

    “Trust but Verify” would have to extend to the entire government then.

    We have no true way of knowing if DJT is not suffering from early stages of Ahlzheimer’s as some who have been close to him have alleged.

  81. jason says:

    far sicker than is being let on?”

    Actually, I wouldn’t be surprised if she is sicker than is let on.

    This article from the Atlantic, hardly a right wing rag, speculates that because Ginsburg had two cancerous nodules removed, they could well be the result of metastatic cancer and not a primary cancer. According to the article, its rare a primary lung cancer in a non-smoker presents two nodules.

    Read the article and form your own opinion. But the fact is even if its metastatic, often cancer progresses slowly in older people.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2018/12/rbg-cancer/578869/

  82. CG says:

    I’m not a doctor. I don’t think these many people would be lying about her condition though or that her son would be brazen enough to lie about her now walking a mile a day and working out twice a week with a trainer.

    As long as she has brain function, she has a lifetime seat on the SCOTUS. There’s no need to lie about anything. Ariel Sharon stayed alive in a coma for years. The same as would have been the case if Scalia had survived, which I wish he did.

  83. jason says:

    So why not just take the Court at its word in regards to the status of her health? ”

    There is no conspiracy. But what the court released, or the hospital, was fairly vague.

    “The fact that the statement says the nodules are indeed malignant means that at least a preliminary pathology report has been done, but this crucial detail—what type of malignancy?—was either unclear or withheld from the statement. It reads only: “According to the thoracic surgeon, Valerie W. Rusch, MD, FACS, both nodules removed during surgery were found to be malignant on initial pathology evaluation.” (I emailed Rusch, who told me, “We have no additional information on the pathology at the present time.”)

    “It all depends on the pathology report,” says the pathologist Anirban Maitra, the scientific director of the Ahmed Center for Pancreatic Cancer Research at MD Anderson Cancer Center. “Cancer in the lung is not the same as primary lung cancer, especially in a person with a history of colon and pancreatic cancer. Right now it’s best for the medical community to wait for more details.”

  84. jason says:

    Personally, I don’t think anybody is lying about anything here .

    It’s possible, however, from reading about her case, that not everything about her medical condition has been divulged.

    That’s not a conspiracy, she is not obligated to give out every detail.

  85. Tina says:

    So tonight we see the Star Wars cantina scene.

  86. CG says:

    In 2009, when she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, Sen. Jim Bunning said she would be dead soon.

    She didn’t die. He unfortunately did. People should learn to hold their tongue and not tempt fate.

  87. NYCmike says:

    “We have no true way of knowing if DJT is not suffering from early stages of Ahlzheimer’s as some who have been close to him have alleged.”

    -Another likeness with Reagan! We can only hope he carries it off as well!

  88. NYCmike says:

    “She didn’t die. He unfortunately did. People should learn to hold their tongue and not tempt fate.”

    -NOBODY here has wished her dead, despite your ramblings to the contrary.

    STOP MAKING ST*FF UP!

  89. jason says:

    We have no true way of knowing if DJT is not suffering from early stages of Ahlzheimer’s as some who have been close to him have alleged.”

    LOL

    We had no way of knowing if Obama was in the early stages of Alzheimer’s either.

    I have no way of knowing if Romney is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s.

    This is the kind of statement that makes Corey a clown.

    Something just gratuitously thrown out without any evidence or basis in fact, but for which there is no defense.

    Who “close to Trump” says he has Alzheimer’s?

    If we want to quote facts, Trump scored 100% on a Dementia Test called the Montreal Cognitive Assessment in 2018 meant to screen for Alzheimer’s and other cognitive impairment.

    Unless Corey thinks Trump’s doctor and medical team is involved in a “conspiracy” the Alzheimer claim is complete garbage.

    So his doctor is involved in a conspiracy? He said he gave him the test and released the score.

    The test was administered by Ronny Jackson.

    The claim that he never took the test is false.

    Tina, Trump’s doctor is involved in a conspiracy to allow a President with Alzheimer’s to serve.

    Ginsburg’s son, however, should be taken at his word because why would he lie.

    Personally, I think they are both telling the truth.

  106. jason says:

    Ahh, now the problem is not that he didn’t take the test, it wasn’t the right test.

    The goalposts suddenly moved.

    However, there is a link to the story that says this is an excellent test.

    It’s not a good test if you have TDS, it would never be a good test if Trump passed it.

    I’ve said I do not believe Trump has Alzheimer’s. I also do not believe he only weighs 239.

    jason has stated he believes blood pressure results/medication are bunk. I doubt Dr. Jackson would concur.

    Whatever the best test is to determine his mental state, he should continue to take it on a regular basis.

    This makes it sound like Trump is bound to have dementia if his parent’s had it.

    This is a complete lie and fabrication. It only means higher risk. In fact 95% of Alzheimer cases do NOT have a genetic cause. Trump is way past the type of Alzheimer’s (early onset) most likely to have a genetic component (usually manifests itself between 30 and 60).

    High blood pressure is dangerous and people should take medication for it.

  136. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    54. “SDC claimed it about Utah.” -I have read several comments about Utah by SDC. I do NOT recall one which says what you say he said.”

    You are correct, CG is again distorting a poster’s views. Trump is unpopular in Utah, and Romney is popular. Nevertheless, Trump will carry Utah in 2020 because a lot of voters (like myself if that is where I end up again) will hold their nose and vote for him. Believe I have expressly stated this view multiple times. Utahns don’t like Trump, but don’t want a Democratic president.

    Also, Republicans leaders in Utah were very critical of Romney’s op ed., many expressed their opinion publicly in news interviews. They expressed the same opinion I did, it was inappropriate under the circumstances to do the op-ed, or did not agree with what Romney said.

    During his special election campaign in 2017, Curtis expressly stated he did not vote for Trump. He won overwhelmingly. Keep in mind that Clinton carried all of 27% of the vote in Utah. If Schultz runs, Utah may be one of his better states.

    Should also note that since his op-ed, Romney’s twitter has contained many statements in favor of Trump’s policies. He has toned down after the criticism he received.

    The poll in question was sponsored by the SLC Tribune, which is very liberal. It actually endorsed Obama over Romney in 2012. However, I believe the numbers are correct, and respect the polling firm.

  137. CG says:

    139. You explicitly said that Utahns didn’t like Romney’s op-ed. The poll shows a clear majority approved of it.

    You were also calling on him to be prosecuted and forced to resign from office just a bit over a month ago SDC, so you tend to go back and forth on things a great deal.

  138. jason says:

    But when he does, you will side with Trump and attack Romney. Whom are we kidding?

    I have no problem with Romney voting against tariffs.

    All Republicans should vote against approving an executive order declaring a “national emergency” for something that cannot get passed in Congress.

    That would set a terrible precedent for this to be done in the future and stands in sharp contrast to both conservatism and the Constitutional balance of power.

    If Romney’s Op-Ed “empowers” Democrats, that speaks very poorly on Trump. He must be quite the little delicate flower that needs protection.

    Romney said nothing in the Op-Ed that he had not said before. In fact, he went out of his way to be more conciliatory in the Op-Ed that he had before and his rhetoric was far tamer than what others such as John McCain and Bob Corker had previously said, and for which non-late stage Trump sufferer jason had never criticized before.

    Had Romney wanted to curry favor with the media or with Democrats over his Op-ed, he would have gone about it differently, and not for example praised Jeff Sessions.

    The Deseret News (the conservative paper) has reported Romney has been doing Town Halls and asking audiences if he is being too tough on Trump or not tough enough and people are raising their hands for not tough enough.

    The op-ed was a self serving gratuitous personal attack with no other purpose than to ingratiate himself with the MSM.

    Pure gutter politics, absolutely shameful and disgusting garbage.

    The only reason you liked it is because you are a hypocrite that accepts any attack on Trump no matter how dishonest or farfetched because the ends justify the means.

    The same people who criticize Trump for personal attacks thinks its absolutely wonderful for Romney to do it. Hilarious.

  167. CG says:

    I’m upset about all the other Republicans as well who would have made better Presidents.

    My position was always that he was the worser of two evils as compared to Hillary. I never came close to calling her a pragmatic compromiser. I did say she was an unprincipled politician who will always chase public approval above all else.

    The fact that I did not vote for her, even as I found her the “lesser of two evils” should actually be appreciated.

    No. Hillary has never pulled back from anything, she has always been a dogmatic and intransigent left wing ideologue. Compromise has always been the dirtiest word for her.

    Bill Clinton, over Hillary’s objections, did engage in some compromises and was slightly more pragmatic. Don’t get me wrong, he is a flaming liberal, but he is not the ideologue she is.

    Below is the The Hill’s summary of the Utah poll — note the headline: “Utah votes split down middle on Trump’s job performance. Also Utah poll numbers have remained the same since Trump was elected.”

    Other quotes from The Hill article:

    “Poll: Utah voters split down middle on Trump’s job performance
    The survey from the Salt Lake Tribune and University of Utah found that 49 percent of respondents said they disapproved of Trump’s job performance, with 48 percent saying they approve. The Tribune noted that this is a “statistical tie,” taking into account “the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.”
    “Overall, Trump’s approval rating in Utah has held steady since his inauguration, running consistently higher than the national average, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.”
    “Utah has seen a slow decline in support for the president, but not nearly the same type of disapproval ratings as with the rest of the country,” Jason Perry, head of the Hinckley Institue at the University of Utah where the poll was conducted, told the Salt Lake Tribune. “Utah Republicans remain strong, voters have not blamed him for the shutdown and this may be shielding the president’s approval ratings from dipping further.”

    https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/427236-poll-utah-voters-split-down-middle-on-trumps-job-performance

    As I said, the SLC Tribune has a very liberal bias, and tends to write stories that reflect it. Incidentally, Robbie would not approve of the poll since much of it was done online.

    By the way, CG you are correct to assume I have mixed feelings on Trump, which vary. I did not vote for him in 2016, and have stated am not sure I will vote for him 2020.

    Here the rumor is Mueller will indict Barron soon for being Trump’s son.

  201. jason says:

    According to Instapundit, buried in page 8 this little tidbit:

    “Using an open records request during a general inquiry, for example, The Post obtained Warren’s registration card for the State Bar of Texas, providing a previously undisclosed example of Warren identifying as an “American Indian.”

    Warren filled out the card by hand in neat blue ink and signed it. Dated April 1986, it is the first document to surface showing Warren making the claim in her own handwriting. Her office didn’t dispute its authenticity.”

  202. jason says:

    The “in her own handwriting” is hilarious, it implies other instances were because someone attributed it to her.

    Probably because she looks so American Indian it was obvious.

  203. NYCmike says:

    I would have preferred Trump tweeting out a copy of the handwritten card right before the 2nd debate in October 2020.

    UPDATE: CNN cameras suddenly can’t find AOC in the crowd when POTUS promises we will never be a socialist country.

    Plus: “Trump’s anti-socialist, pro-liberty rhetoric is, dare I say it, Reaganesque. That’s as high praise as I know how to muster for a politician.”

    Huge surprise I suppose that Trump’s biggest fans here loved his speech.

    I haven’t seen a ton of responses from others. I assume the left hated it. Ann Coulter said it was wimpy and too politically correct. Rick Santorum said it was “not a base speech” and that Democrats should applaud it.

    From what I saw, there were things he said that were correct. There were things he said that were incredibly incorrect. The statement that if anyone else had been elected President, we would be in a major war with North Korea right now is just grotesque.

    The speech seemed to be a hodgepodge of Stephen Miller’s “immigrants are criminals” and Jared Kushner’s, “let’s work together.”

    This White House is very good at getting people for the gallery to point out and talk about. I wish they were as good at other st,uff.

  221. CG says:

    I am most satisfied for what was not said.

    He said nothing about declaring a “national emergency.”

    I trust he will continue to listen to Mitch McConnell and sane Republicans on this matter. He pretty much said that he would be fine with 10 additional feet of a velvet rope as long as he could call it a “wall.”

Shouldn’t Democrats as well as Republicans rejoice that manufacturing is flooding back to the US? Shouldn’t Democrats as well as Republicans rejoice at the president’s attack on the regulatory state, the monstrous regime of Title IX fanatics, and other efforts to transform ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave’ into a safe-space chest-less pajama boys?

    The overwhelming majority of people who watch any SOTU speech are those who like the President. That is probably especially true this time. So, that colors the “snap polls.”

  237. CG says:

    After that Tweet, Senator Romney also voted for the Democrat proposal to re-open the government as well.

    He was correct to vote for both. It is also true that after both failed, Trump caved like a dog and Nancy felt it proper to symbolically wear his balls around her neck tonight.

    I think late term abortions are sometimes necessary. So, Trump deserves any smirks that he got. I’ll smirk at pro-life Nazis anyday.

  245. CG says:

    Sanders did look like Trump had just killed his dog when the camera panned to him. You would think he knew better.

    For those concerned about socialism, there were large portions of Trump’s speech tonight that you would have believed was given by Obama if nobody told you it was Trump.

  246. Paul says:

    Weak speech overall. Trump has lost the will to live or something. That’s okay with me.

  247. CG says:

    You “learned” that was happening how?

    I am speaking mostly of Afghanistan.

    And why does he have to lie/exaggerate and say we have been in Afghanistan for “almost 19 years?” He said that about 10 times in the CBS interview.

    No, not almost 19 years. In a few months, it will be almost 18 years. Just say 18 and does he really want to suggest that we were wrong to go into Afghanistan after 9/11 and only Congresswoman Barbara Lee was correct to vote no?

  263. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The fact CG is so snappy may be an indication that Trump gave a decent speech.

    It appeared all sides were able to be in the same room together and acted appropriately, which is a good sign. Pelosi needs to get her far leftist back benchers to tone it down. They gave Trump a target to equate the Democratic Party with socialism. Think the far leftists are going to find out how truly unpleasant Pelosi can be with those who cause her problems.

    I like how DB invariably makes a big deal out of Biden’s baggage—which has never hurt Biden electorally—while ignoring Trump’s equally deleterious baggage.

    Each man’s baggage will be a factor in the race and likely result in a wash on that front. The difference between the two is that Biden won’t be an incumbent stuck around 40% approval—a threshold no President has ever survived—while Biden will be a challenger benefiting from an energized base and deep antipathy toward the incumbent.

    I don’t overestimate Biden’s baggage, but I don’t ignore it either.

    Biden has a LOT of baggage, and running for President is a lot different from running for office in a blue state like Delaware.

    So the idea that Biden’s baggage “doesn’t hurt him” is in fact hogwash, it certainly hurt him the last time he ran for President when he was forced to bow out under charges of plagiarism.

    He will also be 78 and is considered a dinosaur by the moonbats.

    That being said, wes is correct that Biden is one of the most formidable of the Dems. He (wrongly) has blue collar appeal that could compete with Trump.

    The Dems might be smart to nominate him, but I don’t think they will.

    Still, I can’t but think if Biden is their best candidate, the Dem’s bench is not that deep.

    For the past two years, Robbie, Messy and others were telling us how badly the Republicans were doing in a lot of State local elections.

    Well, they will be sad today because the GOP grabbed a Democrat-held Senate seat in Minnesota last night.

    About last night. As we are sure you all know by now, the big news last night was Republican state Rep Jason Rarick winning the special election in MN-SD11. He was a double digit underdog who won by about 6%.(H/T: RRH)

    MN has been trending R.

    Rs actually flipped up two congressional Dem seats in 2018 (and lost 2) for a wash, not a bad result considering what happened in other states.

    So I would not read much into this one race.

    I have to laugh at all the left wing sites doing “fact checks” on Trump’s speech.

    Anybody remember anyone doing “fact checks” on Obma’s SOTU speeches, normally chock full of lies?

    Biden was caught plagiarizing in law school, as a first year law student he wrote among others the following passage:

    “The trend of judicial opinion in various jurisdictions has been that the breach of an implied warranty of fitness is actionable without privity, because it is a tortious wrong upon which suit may be brought by a non-contracting party.”

    To keep from being kicked out of law school, Biden wrote the following as his defense:

    “if I had intended to cheat, would I have been so stupid?”

    So they just gave him an F and he graduated 76th out of 85.

    No, not that kind of cougar, a real mountain lion.

    Corey hardest hit.

    He claimed only Trump supporters watched the speech, hence the strong approval ratings, but the fact is the TV ratings were strong too.

    “Donald Trump’s Long Second State Of The Union Rises In Ratings Over 2018 & Obama”

    What was also strong was the audience at home for a President well known to be obsessed with ratings.

    Perhaps they were spurred on by the shutdown battle between Trump and Pelosi’s united Dems over his desire for billions in the federal budget for a wall on America’s southern border or the sheer drama following the Speaker’s initial dis-invitation to POTUS to address Congress. Or maybe it was the hype the whole thing had been riding on the past few weeks, but American’s desire to know what Trump thought about the state of their union was up last night.

    With individual rises for all of the Big 4, last night’s SOTU was up overall just over 10% in the early metrics from Trump’s official inaugural address to the House members and the Senate of January 30 last year.

    A rare feat for any President this deep into his term, the rise also shows that Trump will eclipse not only his own first SOTU and his 2017 address to Congress but also the second SOTU of his predecessor Barack Obama as well.

    Over 11 outlets, the 44th POTUS pulled in 30.9 million for his January 25, 2011 speech – a number Trump looks likely to beat with ease when the final numbers come in later today.

    Speaking of final numbers, Trump’s first SOTU last year ended up snaring 45.6 million viewers watching on ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, Univision, PBS, Fox News Channel, CNN, MSNBC, FBN, NBC Universo and Estrella”

    What do you mean “never hurt him electorally?” The first time he ran he had to withdraw from the race. The second time he ran he got about 5 delegates (not sure exact number). Obama only picked him because he was no threat. In a party of millennial loons he is old, old, old. The only general election he has ever won is in the tiny state of Delaware. My goodness, he is older than Trump.

    Oh he polls alright now, but once the dems loons attack him just watch his favorable ratings go south. And if he survives that, he will have to take on Trump, who I believe will eat him for lunch. Sorry he just doesn’t scare me. If Biden is the best the dems have to offer, well, they are in trouble.

    Trump’s baggage is already factored in. He is defined by his enemies every — unlike Uncle Joe. And as far as energy goes, the dems already did that with the infanticide positions in Virginia, New York, and other states. The pro life Catholics and the Evangelicals in this country are, well, enraged is to light a term. Don’t worry when voting begins the base will be even more energized than the dems. And not to see that is to completely misunderstand what is happening in pro life America.
