    This is about what I expect from South Carolina.

  2. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Here is a new Wall Street Journal/ NBC Poll. The Donald’s approval/ disapproval is 46/52, respectively.

  3. Phil says:

    Not buying that Trump beats Hillary by 14 and in the next cycle beats Pocahontas by 6.

    That’s just laughable.

  4. lisab says:

    Coach to win? Mind blown.
    —————————-

    the players will like it better …

    at the critical moment in the game, when it could go either way, and everthing is on the line

    ask yourself, what would andy reid do?

    and then don’t do that.

  5. mnw says:

    The only name on that list I fear is Biden. I’m optimistic that the freak show denizens who vote in DEM primaries will give him a pass, however. Does he have room to grow from what he’s getting now? Not at all sure.

    On another subject, walking out on Little Rocket Man probably gives the Chicoms pause, assuming they think that Trump can’t afford to let that negotiation fail.

  6. mnw says:

    P.S. I would be interested in seeing a “second choice” DEM poll. If Biden is getting a big share of “second choice” votes, that would be troubling.

  7. lisab says:

    more and more i am thinking it will be

    sanders/harris vs. trump/pence

  8. dblaikie says:

    What cracks me up about the NBC/WSJ poll is that the headline is that “Trump faces up hill climb for reelection.” The problem is that Trump received the same 46% in his last election where he had a solid electoral victory.

    You see the issue is that California and the Northeast have a huge percentage of the anti-Trump vote. So in an environment where most of the media is trying to destroy Trump and the dems in Congress are trying to investigate him without remorse, he is right at his winning margin. With the Green New Deal, the embracing of infanticide and anti-Semitism, could it be the dems who have the uphill struggle?

  9. dblaikie says:

    7 Not a bad prediction, I hope you are right lisab.

  10. lisab says:

    I hope you are right lisab.
    —————————–

    be careful what you wish for

    sanders could win

  11. dblaikie says:

    Sorry lisab, not a chance. Why do you ask? Because that gift that keeps on giving — Ocasia — is going to drive Bernie even farther to the left than even that old fan of the Soviet Union wil want to go. In 2016 he was the outsider, the populist. Now he is just the standard bearer, the establishment candidate for the monster the Democratic — pro infanticide, pro destroying the economy for the Green New Deal and pro open borders. Bernie Sanders is now the old wizard, the Saruman, of the hard left. He is no longer the champion of the common worker.

  12. Tgca says:

    I don’t fear Biden at all! The demographics are not the same as the 90s or early 2000s.

    Let’s see him get out there and argue to working class white men why he and the new radical left have their interests when Trump has actually delivered for them and the Dems have made only empty promises.

    The Dems are hemorrhaging white working class male voters. Biden is being pushed to the far left. Note how he was forced to walk back his comments on Pence. That does not suggest strength but cowardice in a candidate afraid to be his own man and have to bow to radicals.

    How will Biden defend to middle America all the Obama policies he supported that Trump reversed?

    How do many of these radical left that hate the “old white” guys get energized to vote for Biden. Ask Joe Crowley how loyal the far left was to him.

    Let’s see Biden explain why working class folks will be better turning back the clock to higher taxes, more regulation, increased illegal immigration, and free everything that will bankrupt many states.

  13. gameboy says:

    I’m shocked that be in here are fearful of Biden. The only guy on that list who has a shot at taking down Trump is Schultz if he ran as a Dem.

  14. Tgca says:

    I doubt Bernie will strike it twice in the primaries. Hillary was a flawed candidate to run against as an alternative. But she was never a radical loon. Now Bernie has competition from the Loon Fringe and an old white guy is not going to drain support from younger and more diverse loons when he’s not even a Dem. Folks are already pushing to stop him from running as a Dem.

    Also, he would have to attract the Indy’s to win the GE and that’s not likely for a radical lefty who would turn their world upside down.

    That’s my prediction if the economy is still strong and all is as it is today.

  15. Tgca says:

    As I said last year, having the Dems control the House for 2 years while the GOP controlled the Senate is a good thing to remind the nation of who the New Far Left really are before 2020.

    They won a number ol red and purple seats previously held by anti-Trump GOP who either were weak or resigned in protest. Those seats will be competitive in 2020 after 2 years of the New Far Left.

    On average, Trump is running near or above where he was in 2016 with 24/7 media attacks on his successes. That tells me there is more hidden vote for him out there not less if all remains the same.

  16. Tgca says:

    Now that I have schooled you little people, I think it’s time to go join Bitter at the Philly Flower Power show.

    An amazing video, Cow.

    I don’t think that would be allowed in a restaurant here, though. They let dogs sit at their owners’ feet at good restaurants in France, but… a monkey, I dunno.

  19. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    I don’t think Biden can win the nomination. The Democratic leftists are not going to support a centralist Democrat in 2020. They will demand a leftist. With polls showing Sanders ahead in New Hampshire — Biden may not win enough early primaries to become the clear frontrunner.

    With OSC stealing the media limelight — Trump’s twitter and outrageous comments have become old news. He has become stale to the media — which Trump probably finds distressing; but the Republican Party may be gleeful about.

  20. phoenixrisen says:

    http://news.trust.org/item/20190303144708-i4sem

    The Dems just lost the House in 2020. They know that Mueller’s investigation is a nothingburger against Trump. This new probe will kill off the new Blue Dog caucus like Obamacare did in 2010. Pelosi will put on the full court press for these congressmen to vote for impeachment at the cost of their political careers and, the GOP will recruit strong candidates to challenge for these seats. These incumbents will be put on the spot directly asking if they support the Democrat probe that is trying to impeach Trump after. The two-front pressure from Pelosi and the GOP wanting to regain these seats will ensure this caucus is short lived. If this new caucus somehow survives, it will be a miracle.

  21. phoenixrisen says:

    Need to net a win of 21 seats. Will be very interesting. There are at least 30 seats that could be flipped given the partisan breakdown of their districts.

  22. lisab says:

    trump needs to win first

    phoenix

  23. Tgca says:

    As it stands today, it is not likely Trump would lose against any of these imbeciles. Impeachment, obstruction, reparations, GND, racist Muslims CongressCritters attacking Israel frequently, tax raises, unsecured borders, etc. This is not what the Dems were elected to do but they just can’t help themselves.

    Please tell me how this will attract Indy’s to the Dems. The Dems can’t win the GE without the Indy’s and it appears they will be losing them soon, if not already. They’re already bleeding what’s left of the white working class males.

  24. lisab says:

    there is still a long time to go

    whiich is exactly what i said a month ago when people were saying trump would definitely lose

    too early to accurately predict, but feb was good for trump

  25. Tgca says:

    I think this will be a defining moment in the US when Congress weaponizes its powers to do everything to bring down POTUS by going after everything in their life, including their family. This is an extremely dangerous precedent unseen before in the US to this magnitude.

    Forget the people. Forget the business of the US. Simply overturn 2016 GE at any cost by using Congressional authority.

    But no worries because Trump will fight back and his supporters will be enraged and ultimately I believe the Dems will suffer politically for it.

  26. lisab says:

    tgca,

    think about all the people the hhr posters know who have always voted for republicans since the pilgrims landed in 1620

    but for the first time evah

    will either not vote or will vote for a democrat

  27. lisab says:

    however, i will say i don’t think the dems are even close to the end of the crazy time yet

    but at some point, someone in a dem debate will say,

    “don’t forget, we need to keep together to beat trump”

    and

    someone else will say,

    “tear down this wall”

  28. Wes says:

    In 26, Tg makes the same argument against Dem investigations of Trump Dems made against Gingrich’s investigations of Clinton in 1998. Somehow I doubt Tg was siding with the Dems back then.

  29. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    25. “there is still a long time to go which is exactly what i said a month ago when people were saying trump would definitely lose
    too early to accurately predict, but feb was good for trump.”

    Totally agree with lisab. Look how much things have changed in just a few months. Were going into a crazy world that has not been experienced before; there is no way to guess where the country will be in 2020.

  30. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    NBC/Wall Street Journal Poll:

    +Trump approval 46-52;
    +If election today; Trump 41%; Democrat 48%;
    +Immediate withdraw from Syria opposed 60% to 32%;
    +Capitalism is 50% positive to 19% negative;
    +Socialism is 18% positive to 50% negative.

    OSC is leading the Democrats to disaster; who is going to step forward in the party to stop the far left drift?

  31. lisab says:

    +If election today; Trump 41%; Democrat 48%;
    ————————-

    two problems,

    a.) the generic democrat (or republican) usually does better than an actual person who will have flaws — for example, would warren get 48% to trump’s 41%? i doubt that

    b.) this far out, clinton was HUGELY ahead of trump

    “Clinton’s clearest advantage, however, is over Donald Trump, 59% say they would vote for Clinton if the 2016 match-up were between her and Trump, 34% say they would back Trump.” cnn

    a lot can happen between now and next november …

    EITHER way

    who knows, mueller may have something

  32. sandiegocitizen says:

    32. Start with is the generic democrat a socialist? Does the generic democrat support the green new deal? In a badly factured Democratic Party, there is no such thing as a generic democrat.

  33. lisab says:

    Start with is the generic democrat a socialist?
    ——————————————

    orrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,

    is the generic democrat not trump?

    in 2018 the dems won y being not trump

    who will win the indies in 2020 is up in the air.

  34. lisab says:

    my prediction …

    given that this far out there is NO way to know how the election will turn out
    ——————————————–

    someone will say …

    “I predicted that trump will win/lose back in 2018”

    of course most of them never predicted he would win in 2016, so take it with a grain of salt

    the worse thing is, some of the will say,

    “it was obvious he will win/lose”

  35. Tgca says:

    Nice try Wes. But Congress opened impeachmet hearings upon giving a report by the Independent Counsel outlining perjury, obstruction of justice, and witness tampering. Not only did Clinton get caught lying, he influenced Lewinsky to mislead investigators per Lewinksy’s own affidavit.

    Also, there was no proof that leadership at the DOJ and FBI were trying to get Clinton with dirty tactics we see today against Trump that has lead to a number of individuals fired and under investigation themselves.

    That’s the difference! There were credible witnesses in the Clinton case, not thus far in the Trump case. If it is determined that Trump lied to investigators and directly influenced the testimony of others, than we can discuss the appropriate standards and consistency but none of what Congress has done has yielded any proof.

    In addition, one Congress already closed the door on collusion but another is now re-opening it because they are still trying to overturn 2016 GE.

  36. jason says:

    Nobody knows who will win in 2020.

    But if Trump is at 46% on election day, he will win.

    Because if he is at 46% nationally, he will probably be over 50% in enough swing states to win.

    We saw this in 2016 and we will see it again in 2020. The Dem has to have at least a 3% lead in the national polls to win the EC because of all the “wasted” votes in CA, NY, IL, MA, etc.

  37. jason says:

    I agree with Tgca.

    The evidence against Clinton, especially perjury, was overwhelming compared to the “collusion” and “obstruction” charges against Trump.

    Maybe that will change and Mueller will have DNA results so to speak. Let’s see.

  38. Phil says:

    Please remember that Clinton ran up the score in California and NY. Carried California by 4.4 million votes and NY by 1.8 million. This is to say nothing of the fact that she did the same thing in states like Mass (one million votes) Maryland (700,000 votes). Lots of wasted popular votes there.

    Trump got just under 46% nationally. If he hits between 46 and 47 percent nationally there is a very good chance he wins again.

  39. mnw says:

    Is Bloomberg still talking about running? Third party?

    I could see a “centrist” third party candidate emerging.

  40. Wes says:

    Actually, Tg, after the 1998 elections resulted in the worst showing for an opposition party since 1906, the Senate voted to acquit Clinton of any and all crimes.

  41. Tina says:

    If you name a Drat candidate against trump, he is not doing so badly.

    Up in some, down in others.

    Clearly, the drats in the house are having issues with the anti semites and the all out crazies,

  42. jason says:

    Clinton was not acquitted of “any and all crimes”, he was acquitted on the 2 articles of impeachment brought forth by the House.

    On obstruction of justice the vote was 50-50 and the perjury charge was 45-55, 2/3 were required for conviction.

    And many who voted to acquit did not think he was innocent, they just didn’t think it should remove him from office.

    ”In voting to acquit the President, I do so with grave misgivings for I do not mean in any way to exonerate this man,” Senator Susan Collins of Maine, one of the Republicans to break with her party, said in a statement.

    ”He lied under oath,” she said, ”He sought to interfere with the evidence; he tried to influence the testimony of key witnesses. And while it may not be a crime, he exploited a very young star-struck employee whom he then proceeded to smear in an attempt to destroy her credibility, her reputation, her life.”

  43. Wes says:

    In other words, the Senate acquitted him, Jason. Thanks for making my point for me.

  44. Tina says:

    No sightings of Jebots? But the Jebots’ favorite candidate re emerges, looking hideous as ever:

  45. jason says:

    Here is evidence of collusion…

    “Two days after then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe formally put President Trump under criminal investigation in May 2017, bureau officials reached out to the author of the controversial ‘Steele dossier’ for more information, even though they had fired him for misconduct six months earlier. Text messages and congressional testimony transcripts reveal that McCabe’s “Russia team” re-established direct contact with ex-British spy Christopher Steele to build a case against the president for espionage and obstruction of justice after Trump had fired FBI Director James Comey on May 9, 2017. Comey had previously described the dossier – opposition research alleging Trump-Russia ties that was paid for by the Clinton campaign – as ‘salacious and unverified.’ The FBI had severed ties with Steele in November 2016 due to behavior that convinced his handlers he was not a trustworthy source.”

  46. jason says:

    In other words, the Senate acquitted him, Jason. Thanks for making my point for me.”

    No problem wes.

    Whenever you want to make up stupid statements like “Clinton was acquitted of any and all crimes” let me know, I will be here for you.

  47. jason says:

    And of course, let’s not forget Bill Clinton was impeached for lying under oath and obstruction of justice, disbarred and fined for lying under oath, fined $90,000 for giving false testimony, paid $850,000 to Paula Jones for sexual harassment, not to mention the very credible allegations of rape.

    Honk.

  50. Wes says:

    Once again, the Senate acquitted him, Jason. You seem to have a hard time acknowledging that reality. Of course I’m not sure how surrendering a law license in a state Clinton hadn’t lived in for eight years hurt him, but I guess if it helps you sleep better at night…

    At least he didn’t create some lie about nonexistent weapons to invade an already defeated country and sit back for years while terrorists slaughtered thousands. That was that failed President you worship.

  51. DW says:

    AOC: “My earlier verdict that all cows should be destroyed to save the planet is still valid, but I am willing to consider showing clemency by allowing for a period of research where scientists can look for ways to genetically modify cows to get them down from four stomachs to one. This will cut by 75% their consumption of food resources, and thereby cut by the same amount the volume of gasses released when cows flatulate.”

    Jason – Don’t bother. Wes’ admiration for Bill Clinton is unshakeable. Guys who treat all women like hookers tend to have each other’s back.

  55. DW says:

    53 – the more that join the circus, the easier it will be for Dems to nominate one of the most extreme lunatics, thereby increasing the chances they lose.

  56. Waingro says:

    #56, meanwhile, Holder is out. I suspect that Biden, Bloomberg and possibly Sharrod Brown are the only ones left to announce. Anyone else I’m missing? Cuomo?

  57. Wes says:

    I take the opposite position, DW:

    The more moonbats Dems have in the primary, the easier it is to nominate a nationally electable candidate.

  58. DW says:

    Why are so many pedestrians dying, all of a sudden?

    I thought Bloomberg made noises about running third party. Is he gonna run as a DEM now?

    I agree with Wes that a fractured DEM field chock full of radicals would likely help Biden or Bloomberg, or somebody else not as crazy as AOC.

  65. lisab says:

    no, he was always running as a dem

  66. dblaikie says:

    As the primary process works out a dem loon will emerge as the leader of the infanticide open borders dems. I am afraid, at least as far as the grass roots are concerned that the dems have moved to the left of Biden and Bloomberg and that will force them to move leftward like a Jamaican sprinter.

    I know that Wes came out before even the midterms are over and pronounced Trump a dead man walking. But I bet that if had known about the pro infanticide bill in New York, the total lunacy that has become Virginia, the breathtaking stupidity of the Green New Deal, and the fear they reveal in taking on an idiot like OAC well maybe in his heart of hearts maybe even a person like Wes who seems so sure of himself (by the way I respect that) may begin to have doubts.

    Of course I am sure that Wes will post here very soon telling me that I am wrong, wrong, wrong again.

  67. Wes says:

    Actually, DB, I was mum on Trump’s re-election chances before the midterm. I declared him a political Dead Man Walking for reelection when I saw he intended doubling down on the puerile behavior that galvanized people against him.

    I stand by that assessment.

  68. dblaikie says:

    Wes, I had absolutely no doubt that you would stand by it. I appreciate your courage in doing just that. However, I still want want my Highland Park Single Malt in 2020.

  77. DW says:

    I haven’t been able to spend much time here of late. Way too busy with other things at present. Regarding Trump’s chances, I am leaning toward the side of his chances being slim to none. People forget that in the summer of 2016, the common sentiment among many indy voters was they hated BOTH options, and in the end Trump was slightly more palatable than Clinton. It was a choice between a turd and turd covered with orange frosting and sprinkles.

    So all the Dems have to do this time around is let the media do their bidding like they always do, and not nominate someone who is totally off the wall, and they cruise to a fairly easy win.

    Messy the Moron, I’m not sure Dems won any more to investigate Trump than Republicans won to investigate Bill Clinton in 1994. Clearly Americans wanted a check on Trump. Given the fact that these investigations have produced about as much damning evidence as the GOP investigations in the ‘90s did, I’m not sure how effective they will ultimately be.

    MY theory is that with all the big effort to pull driver’s license of DWI drivers (some convicted of DUI cannot afford the $85/ month for the blow and go for 12 full months, plus the $500 fine) so they walk instead of drive.

    SECONDLY, a significant # of those pedestrians who are stuck and killed are wacked out on drugs.

    THIRDLY, people still drive drunk and hit pedestrians.

    As usual, Google was found lying through its teeth about its work helping China censor the internet. This time the truth was discovered by its own employees.

    “GOOGLE EMPLOYEES HAVE carried out their own investigation into the company’s plan to launch a censored search engine for China and say they are concerned that development of the project remains ongoing, The Intercept can reveal.
    Late last year, bosses moved engineers away from working on the controversial project, known as Dragonfly, and said that there were no current plans to launch it. However, a group of employees at the company was unsatisfied with the lack of information from leadership on the issue — and took matters into their own hands.
    The group has identified ongoing work on a batch of code that is associated with the China search engine, according to three Google sources. The development has stoked anger inside Google offices, where many of the company’s 88,000 workforce previously protested against plans to launch the search engine, which was designed to censor broad categories of information associated with human rights, democracy, religion, and peaceful protest.”

    looks like biden is done
    ——————————-

    These Democratic voters were asked if they want Biden to run for president. Not one raised their hands.

    By Josiah Ryan, CNN

    Democratic voters: Biden should stay out of 2020 race 02:57

    (CNN)A handful of voters who say they backed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election say they are unexcited by the prospect of former Vice President Joe Biden entering the 2020 field.

    “How many of you would like to see Joe Biden get in? Show of hands,” CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked the panel of six Democrats, selected from Ohio, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, on “New Day” Tuesday morning.

    No one raised their hands.

    “His time is done,” said Carol Evans, one of the panelists.

    “To be honest, Sen. Biden comes from kind of the good-old-boy politics of the past,” added another panelist, Russell Banks.

    “I don’t think Joe Biden represents that new thing that we need,” a third panelist, Owen Evans, said. “We need a new economy, we need new politics and we need someone different.”

    Kamala Harris will be the nominee.

  109. jason says:

    I am fine with Kamala as the nominee.

    We might as well find out now if we have become a socialist country.

    That wouldn’t be so clear with Biden because he would try to muddle the waters and pretend he was some kind of moderate.

  110. lisab says:

    so it looks like biden is the dems biggest chance

    and the dems don’t want him as the nominee

    i give trump the advantage over sanders

  116. Paul says:

    I do miss Robbie. This place is pretty dull without him.

  117. dblaikie says:

    I think that Bloomberg is a smart guy and sees the handwriting on the wall — the dems have gone too far to the left and he is not electable with the loons. Being smart he knows that running as an Indie is waste of money.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Biden doesn’t come to the same conclusion. This is the season when the dems finally go completely overboard. If Biden drops out, it will be a solid sign that the dems are no longer dems but socialists.

  118. dblaikie says:

    If Uncle Joe doesn’t run, you can throw overboard any tired effort that tries to handicap 2020 by using criteria from 2016.

  119. NYCmike says:

    “i’m happy Bloomberg is out. He might be electable.”

    -Bloomie became a bit of a nanny in NYC, but he is very smart, is not an economic wingnut, has LOTS of $ (more than Ca$h Cow!) and knows how to deal with people with big egos.

  120. jason says:

    Bloomberg would never be nominated, and would be killed in the debates trying to explain why he was once a Republican.

    He is big on the nanny state and hates the 2nd amendment, so he would fit right in.

    Still, if I had to choose one Dem to be President I would probably choose him because at least he knows how to run a business.

  121. Waingro says:

    #124, agreed. He also is fairly strong on supporting law enforcement and is more of a hawk in terms of defense and towards our allies, particularly Israel.

    He would have at least been tolerable as a Dem POTUS.

  122. lisab says:

    bernie will have by far the most money …

    someone will have to swing at him and chop him down

    or he will be the nominee

    he easily reaches 50 million, and possibly thrice that, for the primaries!

    He is attracted to bad news for Trump like a maggot is to roadkill.

    A primary school that taught pupils about homosexuality as part of a programme to challenge homophobia has stopped the lessons after hundreds of children were withdrawn by parents in protest.

    Parkfield community school in Saltley, Birmingham, has been the scene of weekly protests over the lessons, which parents claim are promoting gay and transgender lifestyles.

    On Friday about 600 Muslim children, aged between four and 11, were withdrawn from the school for the day, parents said. The school would not confirm the number.

    Last month, the Guardian reported that the assistant headteacher of the school was forced to defend the lessons after 400 predominantly Muslim parents signed a petition calling for them to be dropped from the curriculum.

    Perhaps Ilhan Omar should stop being obsessed about Jews and concentrate on issues in her congressional district:

    “A group of Somali volunteers including Abdirahman Mukhtar, left, and Abdullahi Farah gave out pizza and tea to young people from a stand Friday in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood.The men hope by connecting with youth and engaging them in conversation they can combat the shootings that have recently plagued the neighborhood. After the latest spasm of gang violence, Minneapolis’ Somali residents and business owners on Monday stepped up their calls for help from City Hall and police headquarters to help curb the senseless shootings that they say too often go overlooked. On Friday alone, five men of Somali descent were shot in separate attacks, one fatally.
    Police and community members pinned the blame for the bloodshed on an ongoing feud between Cedar-Riverside neighborhood gangs like 1627 and Madhiban With Attitude (MWA) and their rivals, the Somali Outlaws, whose territory includes the area around Karmel Mall. Friday’s shootings were a repeat of a familiar pattern: a shooting on one gang’s turf is usually followed hours, if not minutes later by an “eye-for-an-eye” “

    Bad news, Trump in trouble in FL

    “Donald Trump is in trouble in Florida, a state that’s crucial to his reelection hopes.

    Just 40 percent of Florida voters said they believed the president should be reelected, while 53 percent were opposed to a second term, according to a new Bendixen & Amandi International poll.

    Trump’s approval ratings were also poor, with 43 percent having a favorable impression of Trump, and 52 percent viewing him unfavorably — and 46 percent very unfavorably.”

    Good news: I never heard of Bendixen and Amandi

  145. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    BOOM! if I have read the results correctly to Question 59(or is it question 58) in this new weekly Economist/ YouGov Weekly Tracking Poll.

  149. Bitterlaw says:

    Jason – Makes sense. Trump is scum. It is difficult to only have a somewhat moderately unfavorable view of scum.

    I am still happy every day that Hillary is not President.

  150. jason says:

    Trudeau might be toast, but the election is still 7 months away.

    “A majority of Canadians are keeping tabs on the SNC-Lavalin affair and that doesn’t bode well for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, according to a new Ipsos poll conducted exclusively for Global News.

    If an election were held tomorrow, Trudeau would receive only 31 per cent of the decided popular vote — down three points from a couple of weeks ago — while Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer would receive 40 per cent, according to the poll of 1,000 Canadians carried out between March 1 and March 4.”

    The article goes on to say that the Liberals will be running ads on “climate change” to distract from the scandal.

  151. jason says:

    It is difficult to only have a somewhat moderately unfavorable view of scum.”

    That is not what every other poll shows. It is very rare the very unfavorable (or very favorable for that matter) is 90% of the unfavorable (or favorable) views.

    This guy, Brennan is a complete whack job. The Ides of March? Really?

  157. jason says:

    After the Scottish Nationalists got killed in the last election, that movement seems to have died down somewhat too.

    The WSJ has a particular hate-on for MO’s new Senator Hawley. Maybe because he’s so young (39) & so articulate, they’ve decided to strangle his political future in the crib.

    He’s on the Judiciary Committee, doing what he’s supposed to do.

  171. jason says:

    His comments were not thoughtful at all, he didn’t do his homework, and it looked more like grandstanding than anything else. Rao is 45 and badgering her over what she wrote in college was pretty stupid and was “me too” after the Dems had raised the same issue, not to mention he heard “rumors” she was pro-choice. He had to back down after conservative groups threatened a $500k campaign against him and had his ass reamed in private by McConnell. He came out looking like an ass and the WSJ was not the only one to call him out for it.

  172. jason says:

    Basically, Hawley tried to litmus test Rao and I am glad it didn’t work.

  173. jason says:

    I think Hawley has a great future in politics and he was one of the senate candidates I contributed to. But I don’t have to support everything he does and in fact I am glad this happened, because I bet he will be more careful in the future.

    U.N. Predicts Disaster if Global Warming Not Checked

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) _ A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.

    Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ?eco- refugees,? ? threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP.

    He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.

    As the warming melts polar icecaps, ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations, Brown told The Associated Press in an interview on Wednesday.

    Coastal regions will be inundated; one-sixth of Bangladesh could be flooded, displacing a fourth of its 90 million people. A fifth of Egypt’s arable land in the Nile Delta would be flooded, cutting off its food supply, according to a joint UNEP and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study.

    ?Ecological refugees will become a major concern, and what’s worse is you may find that people can move to drier ground, but the soils and the natural resources may not support life. Africa doesn’t have to worry about land, but would you want to live in the Sahara?? he said.

    UNEP estimates it would cost the United States at least $100 billion to protect its east coast alone.

    Shifting climate patterns would bring back 1930s Dust Bowl conditions to Canadian and U.S. wheatlands, while the Soviet Union could reap bumper crops if it adapts its agriculture in time, according to a study by UNEP and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis.

    Excess carbon dioxide is pouring into the atmosphere because of humanity’s use of fossil fuels and burning of rain forests, the study says. The atmosphere is retaining more heat than it radiates, much like a greenhouse.

    The most conservative scientific estimate that the Earth’s temperature will rise 1 to 7 degrees in the next 30 years, said Brown.

    The difference may seem slight, he said, but the planet is only 9 degrees warmer now than during the 8,000-year Ice Age that ended 10,000 years ago.

    Brown said if the warming trend continues, ?the question is will we be able to reverse the process in time? We say that within the next 10 years, given the present loads that the atmosphere has to bear, we have an opportunity to start the stabilizing process.?

    He said even the most conservative scientists ?already tell us there’s nothing we can do now to stop a … change? of about 3 degrees.

    ?Anything beyond that, and we have to start thinking about the significant rise of the sea levels … we can expect more ferocious storms, hurricanes, wind shear, dust erosion.?

    He said there is time to act, but there is no time to waste.

    UNEP is working toward forming a scientific plan of action by the end of 1990, and the adoption of a global climate treaty by 1992. In May, delegates from 103 nations met in Nairobi, Kenya – where UNEP is based – and decided to open negotiations on the treaty next year.

    Nations will be asked to reduce the use of fossil fuels, cut the emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases such as methane and fluorocarbons, and preserve the rain forests.

    ?We have no clear idea about the ecological minimum of green space that the planet needs to function effectively. What we do know is that we are destroying the tropical rain forest at the rate of 50 acres a minute, about one football field per second,? said Brown.

    Each acre of rain forest can store 100 tons of carbon dioxide and reprocess it into oxygen.

    Brown suggested that compensating Brazil, Indonesia and Kenya for preserving rain forests may be necessary.

    The European Community istalking about a half-cent levy on each kilowatt- hour of fossil fuels to raise $55 million a year to protect the rain forests, and other direct subsidies may be possible, he said.

    The treaty could also call for improved energy efficiency, increasing conservation, and for developed nations to transfer technology to Third World nations to help them save energy and cut greenhouse gas emissions, said Brown.

    February 9, 2018

    The Pacific nation of Tuvalu—long seen as a prime candidate to disappear as climate change forces up sea levels—is actually growing in size, new research shows.

    A University of Auckland study examined changes in the geography of Tuvalu’s nine atolls and 101 reef islands between 1971 and 2014, using aerial photographs and satellite imagery.

    It found eight of the atolls and almost three-quarters of the islands grew during the study period, lifting Tuvalu’s total land area by 2.9 percent, even though sea levels in the country rose at twice the global average.

    This state is too mercurial for Tillis to be an absolutely safe bet for reelection outside a 2010 situation; however, NC-Sen is steadily trending further into Likely R Hold territory, thus decreasing Dem chances of flipping the Senate.

  187. Wes says:

    Trump will carry NC next year, though I expect his margin to decrease slightly from 2016. Tillis is attracting no top-tier challengers. Assuming Forest avoids a divisive primary, Cooper will have a tough re-election bid, which the expanded Dem minorities in the General Assembly will complicate by making his vetoes sustainable.

    NC could be shaping up to be a bright spot for the GOP next year much as in 2012.

Add another point for her admission that she smoked dope (Democrats really love pot heads) and that’s 9 points, a total that is going to be tough for any of the other Democratic candidates to beat.

    By PAUL LEWISMAY 13, 1992

    The 45,000 people of the Marshall Islands, a former United States trust territory in the Pacific Ocean, will need to be rehoused or evacuated within 30 years if ocean levels rise as much as some scientists predict as a result of atmospheric warming, according to a United States study….

    The scientists on the advisory panel said that, depending on several assumptions, ocean levels are likely to rise by a little over a foot during the next century, or perhaps by as much as three feet.

    Taking the lower assumption, the study says, the population of the 29 atolls and 5 islands of the Marshall Islands would need to be rehoused in high-rise buildings near the highest points on the archipelago by 2022.

    Transgender Volleyball Star in Brazil Eyes Olympics and Stirs Debate

    A man named “Tiffany” Abreu is currently dominating and setting records in women’s pro-volleyball in the South American country.

    In a YouTube video, Joffre the Giant entertainingly and thoughtfully details the mess currently embroiling Brazilian women’s volleyball. According to the video, “Tiffany” spent years playing at the lowest levels of men’s club volleyball, eventually landing on a tier three club team, the lowest level, in Belgium. And by “playing,” as Joffre points out, “Tiffany” was achieving mediocrity. Take note: that’s mediocrity at the lowest level in the men’s leagues.

    In only his fourth match as a professional women’s volleyball player, “Tiffany” set a record for points. What’s more, according to Joffre, it only took three matches for Tiffany “to become the leading scorer by average.” In his fourth match, “Tiffany plays in a five-set match against the best team in the league, scores 39 points. Breaking the record.”

    In the history of Western Culture violent prejudice against the Jewish people is a terrible and heinous mark. From the pogroms in Russia, to forced conversions in the Inquisition, to the holocaust, our culture has much to answer.

    And now this refusal in the United States Congress. In just a short time the Democrats have refused to condemn third trimester abortions, have embraced at worst or refused to condemn at best an environmental plan that will bankrupt the country, have embraced open borders, and finally who are openly engaging in a fishing expedition that will consume much of the government’s energy and financially destroy many who only want to serve the country with legal costs all in order to destroy a president they hate.

  228. dblaikie says:

    CG your post is laughable on many levels. Let’s look at record, shall we? Trump’s son-in-law is Jewish and his daughter is a convert to Judaism. Of course that means (I guess I have to spell it out for you) that his grandchildren consider themselves Jewish. At least they would be considered Jewish in Nazi Germany. But more than that Trump is the person who moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem. I believe if you took a poll in Israel that not many would believe Trump is an anti-semite! Frankly I tire of these moral equivalence arguments. What is wrong is wrong.

  229. CG says:

    You didn’t even attempt to address the substance of what I posted.

    In 2017, Trump released a statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day that deliberately omitted references to Jews and anti-Semitism. Those are facts. Steve Bannon, then a top White House aide, who is considered largely responsible for Trump’s successful election was the reason why.

    The same anti-Semitic and anti-Israel tropes that Ilhan Omar uses and which are defended on the Far Left are not any different than those used by Steve Bannon, Ann Coulter, and others on the right.

    One should be consistent and denounce them in all circumstances, and not just when it suits your own political needs.

  230. dblaikie says:

    If the Democrats had any sense they would take the candidacy of John Delaney seriously. But they won’t. In this day, a centerest Democrat has about as much chance of getting the nomination as a real donkey.

  231. dblaikie says:

    OH well, I just read his opinion on the issues. He is still a left leaning liberal. Not like Ocasio Cortez, but still out there.

  232. dblaikie says:

    CG, sorry but the Trump Administration is not Anti Semitic! Ann Coulter is not a part of the administration and neither is Steve Bannon. However the Democrats in the Legislative Branch are having real trouble in voting for a simple non binding resolution!! To equate the two is preposterous.

  233. dblaikie says:

    However I will concede your point, two years ago, it would have been better if the Administration had included references specifically to Jews and anti-Semitism. I do address the substance of points unlike Wormtongue.

  234. CG says:

    Again, since you have no answer to what I actually posted, you went ahead and turned it into something else.

    The 2017 Trump White House Statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day (a specific document) was disgraceful. The current issue of House Democrats perhaps not being able to produce a resolution condemning anti-Semitism in 2019 (a specific document) would also be disgraceful.

    Yes, Bannon eventually got fired We all know there is all sorts of infighting in TrumpWorld between various groups, such as the fights that Bannon had with New York Democrats Jared and Ivanka but Trump supporters were not exactly complaining about Bannon when he helped Trump get elected or when Trump expressed loyalty to him. You all circled the wagons around Bannon, the same way that many on the left are circling the wagons around Omar.

    There are far more examples that can be provided but the bottom line is that the same sort of anti-Israel views that are associated with Omar have been associated with Bannonism.

  235. CG says:

    Thank you for finally conceding my point.

  236. Tina says:

    Trump,at 50 again in Rasmussen.

  237. CG says:

    I would also hope that Trump supporters would be more insistent that Administration members including the guy at the very top be a bit more careful in whom they choose to re-Tweet, especially as it relates to those who have what should be obvious anti-Semitic or white nationalist references in their Twitter names or such images in Twitter avatars.

    We all know you will call out Omar and Tlaib if they do the same, as should be the case. Consistency for both parties would be even better though.

  238. dblaikie says:

    CG Trump fired Steve Bannon a long time ago! It is time to quit equating him with the Administration. I never liked Steve Bannon nor am I, in any sense, a supporter of the Alt-right. Sorry, but from my perspective you are trying equate what the Congress is doing today to what Steve Bannon believes. That simply doesn’t hold water.

    They were silent until Trump turned on him.

    The parallels between that and leftist defense of Omar is clear. There are elements of the base in both parties (more so anti-Israel with Democrats, although clearly not exclusively with Democrats) just like more so anti-immigrant with Republicans) that both parties are afraid to alienate.

    Is one now willing to suggest that Trump should never have hired Bannon to begin with and that he should never associate himself politically with him again? Where were the criticisms of Coulter and her views on “the Jewish lobby” when she was writing books called “In Trump We Trust.” Why is Trump very recently citing Pat Buchanan, the very same man that Trump once referred to as a “Hitler-lover”, as a positive endorsement for his immigration policies?

    Kamala Harris released a “good people on both sides” type statement on Omar and the Jews, so the parallels are even more obvious.

  243. Paul says:

    I personally think both Democrats and Republicans are twisting Omar’s recent statement into something it was not.

    Nonetheless, a clear statement condemning antisemitic tropes is a positive step. Omar needs to reach out to her own Jewish constituents and make some amends and further her own understanding. Good for her politically and she might learn something.

  244. CG says:

    It’s not an isolated incident with Omar. She keeps repeating the same sort of thing over and over and then feigns ignorance.

  245. Paul says:

    I just watched her coffee shop video. I totally agree with what she said.

  246. Paul says:

    The anti-globalist nuts who tie together Soros, Jews, globalism and illegal immigration are actually antisemitic. Those are the ones who shoot synagogues because they think the Jews are helping bring in illegal immigrants.

    On the left, I don’t think very many are motivated by any sort of hatred of Jews even when they are a part of the boycott movement. They are mostly motivated by the concern for Palestinians who often appear to be on the bad end of the stick in Israel/Palestine.

  247. CG says:

    It’s two sides of the same coin. One cannot wish for Israel to not exist and also not be inherently anti-Jewish. Both “sides” claim that Jewish-Americans are not loyal Americans or hold a level of “power” they do not deserve.

    The survival of Israel as a Jewish state is considered part and parcel with the survival of the Jewish people.

    Those on the left who are so concerned about the Palestinians seem to focus a bit much disproportionally on Israel (where Palestinians have far more rights than anywhere else in the world)as opposed to Arab states where Palestinians have been treated badly.

  248. CG says:

    There is clear evidence that the recent explosion of anti-Semitic incidents in Europe are coming at the same time from both the Far Left and Far Right.

  249. Tina says:

    I’ve never heard anyone on the left say that Israel should not exist.

    I personally stand against the aggressive action of Israel invading Palestinian lands AND violating the rights of Palestinians. But I also am pro-Israel. If you don’t say I can be both, then you can go suck it.

  254. Paul says:

    Omar’s words were perfectly fine. Go F%ck Yourselves.

  255. Paul says:

    Tina, you are an idiotic asswipe. Go somewhere else, you clueless moronic insipid ass.

  256. CG says:

    Now, you are acting like a “troll” Paul.

    Israel can be criticized, but one when claims they are not anti-Semitic but merely “anti-Zionist”, it doesn’t usually take too much digging to find out what that person really is.

    The concept that Israel has “invaded” Palestinian lands or violated the rights of Palestinians is of course somewhat laughable. Palestinians have far more rights in Israel than they would have elsewhere in the Middle East. If the Palestinians want to improve their situation, they should stop launching rockets, homicide attacks on civilians, and electing Hamas to lead them.

    Plenty of people on the left have insisted that Israel has no right to exist and refuse to even acknowledge it on a map. If you state you are not one of them, that’s fine, but you need to be aware they exist every bit as much as the Trump apologists need to know some of the people they have chosen to align with.

  257. CG says:

    Pelosi attempting to excuse Omar as some sort of benevolent dunce who should never be taken literally also rings very true to how many Congressional Republicans have attempted to defend Trump on various statements.

    The circle becomes even more complete.

  258. Paul says:

    I agree that there are some who may feel that way. However, I personally feel fairly pro-Israel and Jewish. However, I have great concerns about the violence against the Palestinians. I feel like they are in a trap with no way out and so they are inevitably killed and slaughtered along the way. Could they make better choices, yes. But, it is hard. So, I for one am critical of Israel. If you want to call me antisemitic, whatever. I don’t think I am.

  259. Paul says:

    I talk with my Rabbi friend regularly who lives around the block. She has agreed with me to some extent on Israel’s actions. Other Jews are also vocally condemning Israel at times. None of them are antisemitic.

  260. CG says:

    As Golda Meir is quoted to have said, peace will come when the Arabs decide they love their own children more than they hate Jewish children.

    The problems of the Palestinians are not due to Israel defending itself (even if it might overreach occasionally), but of their own making. For the most part, the Israeli government and military goes to great lengths in being careful in how it retaliates and protects its citizens, even when innocent Jews are put in harm’s way because of it.

  261. Wes says:

    260 is a hopelessly deranged, mendacious post. I don’t feel the same passionate affinity for Israel Corey has; however, I don’t believe for a second after his citation strictly of problems with Israel, Paul is in any way a supporter of Israel.

    Israel is not always pure in its actions—e g, having Jonathan Pollard spy on the US—but to discount the crimes Palestinians and other Arabs have committed against Israel while speaking out strictly about what Israel has done shows a clear anti-Israel bias.

  262. CG says:

    It would be nice if those who “condemn Israel’s actions” ever bother to denounce jihadist violence at all. Those involved in the BDS movement never do. Everything is the fault of Israel to them.

    There are many Americans on the Religious Left who share those views. I’m not sure many actual Rabbis, or any Jewish affiliation, do though. However, on HHR, some have continued to insist that “Jews for Jesus” are actually Jewish and have actual Rabbis.

  263. Paul says:

    Since the 1980s, I’ve felt some compassion regarding the plight of the Palestinians. Maybe, it is just stupid left-wing bias that has always sucked me in. I guess I feel like they are a bit trapped in their world. AND I agree that a big part is their own fault.

    I also am strongly against any antisemitism in the world. I do think Israel has a right to exist.

    In the current world, it feels like there is very little room to question Israel. Maybe that’s more of the left-wing bias I’m being fed.

    Just feels like a mess on both sides.

    “CG”,

    What was the date from January 2017, when the proclamation was released? Would you have it handy?

    I remember the issue, but not where to look in the archives to see more about that issue.

    I also do remember your panties being tied tighter than other Jewish people in regard to that statement by the Trump administration. Memories of when the word “bannon” was mentioned on a daily basis by you and Robbie.

  270. CG says:

    A quick Google search indicates that International Holocaust Remembrance Day is January 27. I remember discussing the matter on here at the time. Obviously, I have been consistent on the matter.

    I do not know what other Jewish people you consulted with on the matter in regards to how tight our panties were or for that matter, why it even matters that I am Jewish. I certainly think it would be feasible for me to have the same belief on the matter or on anything else if I were not Jewish, but I recognize NYC that you like to point out that I am Jewish when given the chance. Since it’s true, I will embrace it.

  271. Paul says:

    I really don’t think Omar is antisemitic. But she has made a real mess of things. Threading the needle of what she actually meant is pointless I suppose. She needs to apologize, make amends and move forward. However, I watched the whole video and didn’t see anything that I found shocking or that I even disagreed with … or maybe I’m just too antisemitic to realize it.

  272. CG says:

    “Allegiance to a foreign country” is not a term that is thrown around a lot in our politics (although some will certainly suggest it applies to Trump and Russia.)

    Russia is hostile to the U.S. though while Israel is a staunch ally. It is what makes Omar’s remarks so troubling.

    Great Britain is also a strong ally of the U.S. Nobody suggests that an American politician has “allegiance” to England.

    The claim that American Jews owe their loyalty to Israel and not to the U.S. has been around for generations. She repeated it and will likely do so again.

  273. CG says:

    I also fail to see how any single Jew on Earth is the cause of any hardship that Ms. Omar or anyone in her family has ever faced.

    I do not believe there are very many Jews in Somalia.

  274. Paul says:

    I understood it in the bigger context that one shouldn’t be forced into a particular view on Israel to be in politics in America. A view that is opposed to Israel shouldn’t be censured was her bigger point. And being critical of a lobby like AIPAC should be no different that being critical of the NRA.

  275. Tina says:

    Omar is a loon and an anti Semite.

    She will need to be pushed off the House Foreign Affairs committee ASAP, assuming piglosi and the chairperson had guts,

  276. Paul says:

    Tina is a bitter asinine creep that needs to go.

  277. CG says:

    The NRA arguments beside the point, AIPAC does not “own” politicians. She has in the very recent past suggested that Jewish money owns politicians and causes them to behave a certain way. That is a centuries old anti-Semitic trope. People can either see it for what it is or not.

    AIPAC exists because Israel is a staunch ally of the United States and an important strategic one.

  278. CG says:

    Omar’s rhetorical problem is that she continues to exist that anyone who disagrees with her on Israel has either been “hypnotized” or subservient to financial influence or is allegiant to a foreign country.

    She cannot just accept that there are general disagreements on policy matters, and that her view on Israel has never been consistent with the American mainstream.

  279. CG says:

    *insist* not “exist.”

    You have made me think through things a bit more. I can see how these comments are pretty bad. Like you said, it’s a pattern of picking up parts of antisemitic tropes that can’t be simply excused by stupidity. So for that, thanks.

  284. CG says:

  285. CG says:

    Did Omar just do it again?

    “You’re not going to support me because I don’t want your money. You want to control your politicians, that’s fine.”

    No wait, that was Donald Trump speaking to the Republican Jewish Coalition in 2015.

  286. jason says:

    Very well said.

    There IS no moral equivalency.

    Trump is a great friend of Israel and Jews. To suggest otherwise is absurd.

    I don’t deny Buchanan is a flaming anti-Semite. But because Trump might agree with something Buchanan said about border security does not make Trump an anti-Semite. That is complete BS.

  287. CG says:

    Of course, the fact is that in the history of HHR, I have never one single time made a comment where I have said that Donald Trump is an anti-Semite.

    It is a fact though that he has had anti-Semites around him and has accepted their support and that his supporters have been fine with that.

    Trump is a bigot in general though, as I have always maintained, and as many others have said, including those who now profess unyielding loyalty to him.

    So, talk about goal posts being changed..

  288. CG says:

    Is Trump a fan of “Israel and the Jews” more so because of Jews or because of Evangelicals?

    Remember, the pastor the Administration picked to speak at the opening of the Jerusalem Embassy is a guy who relishes speaking publicly about how Jews are destined to spend eternity in hell if they do not turn away from being Jewish.

    There was certainly a better choice of a Christian pastor than that.

  289. CG says:

    I’m confused though.

    Ever since you all embraced Trump, I have been called a “sanctimonious” or “egotistical” Jew, and now today, I am being called a “self-loathing Jew.” It can’t be both.

    The Somalis Minnesota story tracks to 1991, when civil war broke out in Somalia. Millions fled to refugee camps, many in Kenya. Two years later, the first wave of Somali refugees were sent to Minnesota. “In the beginning the U.S. federal government assigns people,” said Dr. Ahmed Samatar. To qualify as a refugee, there is a process. The U.S. State Department ultimately decides where refugees will live, but it has to do with the voluntary agencies, called VOLAGS, that contract with the State Department.

  360. lisab says:

    If YES, how did that affect her sexual relationship with her brother/husband?
    ———————————–
    not that i am a fan of omar or anything and she cheated the immigration laws,

    but somalians are definitely not incestuous, not more than anyone else in the world anyway. the tradition is for women to marry outside their tribe, i.e. to marry into a different village.

    this is different than in some other cultures that are islamic where marrying cousins is pretty common.

    “but somalians are definitely not incestuous, not more than anyone else in the world anyway. the tradition is for women to marry outside their tribe, i.e. to marry into a different village.”

    -Check out Powerline.com

    They are Minnesota-based blog, and they have pretty good info on Omar, similar to the work they did on Ellison.

    There is a pretty good chance Omar used a brother/husband in an illegal way to benefit her becoming a citizen.

  368. lisab says:

    Is there a good chance that she may have committed marriage fraud?

    ——————————-

    about 100%

    but it is not like somalians have a reputation of sleeping with their brothers or anything.

    they are like the brazillian women of africa … they are considered very beautiful.

    of course, there is the old light-skinned vs. dark-skinned problem, which is all over africa.

    nyc,

    yes, that is well known in mn.

    what i am saying though is that somalians in general

    are NOT known for marrying cousins or close family members. some people are making it out like somalians are incestuous.

  371. jason says:

    The problem with Omar is not that she is Somalian. That is the wrong way to approach this.

    Obama got away with a lot of lies and probably a lot of illegal actions because of the attacks on his heritage, where he could play victim.

    This not about Somalia or the customs of Somalis.

    This woman is a racist and an anti-Semite. It’s not really complicated.

    This is a good column on the Omar matter.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/07/opinion/ilhan-omar-anti-semitism.html

  373. CG says:

    What exactly has Omar been accused of doing or saying that is “racist”, i.e. distinct from anti-Semitism?

    If it does not apply, the terms should not be mixed.

    People wonder why I still say Trump loses next year. He just can’t help himself. He should have stayed on the sidelines and let the Dems thrash about because of what Omar said. Instead, the Donald just had to comment and muddy the waters.

    One of my favorite rules of politics is to get out of the way and let your opponent implode once he starts. Maybe Trump should take that to heart.

  378. Wes says:

    Dictionary.com lists racism as an allied word to anti-Semitism, so I guess in the broadest sense Omar a racist.

  379. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    In language that bears on today’s debate about whether descendants of slaves should be compensated, he added, “I don’t feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather. I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation. And I’ll be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago.”

  422. Wes says:

    I’m not sure how Jason is connected to Moore, Robbie, since Jason criticized the law-breaking theocrats repeatedly.

    As far as Mikey, anyone who thought Christine O’Donnell, Dick Mourdock, and Matt Bevin were good Senate candidates clearly has clearly been running defense for the DSCC and will of course want Moore to throw the election to Jones—again.

    I was NOT in favor of Moore, until he got more votes than his Republican opponents, then was preferred to Jones the Democrat.

    Are you against the people voting in primaries?

    If not against it, similar to how I am not against it, then you support Moore, who won inside the primary system.

  426. CG says:

    So, NYC, are you saying that you simply do not believe that Roy Moore was a serial sexual abuser of young girls or you simply did not care?

    It has to be one or the other.

  440. NYCmike says:

    ” although there had been whispers about his past for decades.”

    -If you could show one comment at HHR that centered on sexual issues as opposed to his tenure as a judge, please show it. The guy may be a pig, but it was never mentioned on HHR as a reason to vote against him. I would think that at least one of his very vocal opponents here would have brought it up if it was known, or even “whispered about in his past”.

    Moore is an arse. Those allegations several weeks before the election were exactly what we think they were, a political hatchet job.

  446. Wes says:

    I can’t find the link now, Mikey, but it was reported Strange knew of the allegations and tried to get them leaked by the local media during the runoff. Of course the local media didn’t bite—until Moore won the runoff.

  447. NYCmike says:

    “You have made it clear you think he is innocent by your standards.”

    -“by your standards” = presumption of innocence until proven guilty in the American judicial system.

    OK, I’ll take that.

    Which judicial system do you rely upon to help inform your decisions?

  448. NYCmike says:

    “but it was reported Strange knew of the allegations and tried to get them leaked by the local media during the runoff.”

    -I guess Hannity, Levin, Limbaugh or any other radio host would have avoided such an attention-grabbing story…….its not like those guys would want bigger ratings or any such nonsense!

    Mikey, Ted Kennedy was never charged with DUI manslaughter despite Mary Jo Kopechne’s body in the back seat of his car and a diver willing to testify about his findings.

  450. NYCmike says:

  454. Bitterlaw says:

    Moore was a horrible candidate. He did not believe in the rule of law and was twice kicked off the bench.

    The allegations against him were a political hit. We’re they true? Maybe. Maybe not. To be honest, I almost wish there was truth to them because I can’t imagine a worse accusation against a man. I have coached hundreds of children. I do everything possible avoid contact. Tough to demonstrate boxing out on rebounds or moving players feet and shoulders for batting with no contact but I do my best. I don’t know why people falsely accused don’t just kill themselves. The stigma is too much to bear. Thankfully, in 14 years of coaching, I have never heard of any incidents. There was one coach who head butted a referee but that’s it for assaults.

  456. jason says:

    I agree with Bitter.

    The main reason Moore was not an acceptable candidate had nothing to do with the political hit, the guy was the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme that was twice kicked off the bench for not following the rule of law and the Constitution.

    Unfortunately there were enough deadenders to vote for him in the primary plus enough useful idiots like NYC to support a spoiler like Mo Brooks so he won the primary.

    Hopefully enough of the deadenders and useful idiots learned their lesson.

    No, I wouldn’t actually bet on it.

  457. Wes says:

    Heh. Mikey thinks Moore’s fanboys—Limbaugh, Hannity, and Levin—would have aired the allegations against Moore without summarily declaring Moore innocent and saying, “This is what’s wrong with the Establishment. They try to destroy perfectly good conservatives.”

    These same three morons worked overtime to help Christine O’Donnell win the 2010 Senate primary. How’d that work out?

    Of course I can argue Strange made the first mistake of the campaign by letting Bentley appoint him for the nakedly underhanded reason of stopping Strange’s investigation. Had Strange declined the appointment and sought the nomination in the primary, Moore wouldn’t have had a credible argument against Strange’s nomination and wouldn’t have been able to gain traction.

    Nonetheless, Moore was always known to be the worst available candidate for Senate in the primary. He had lost his judgeship twice for refusal to follow the law. He made untoward remarks about blacks that would ratchet up their turnout in a way no other Republican could. He was known as a sanctimonious fop who would inevitably struggle in any election he was in.

    The highlighting of the already extant sexual allegations were just the final push Alabamans needed to reject this solipsistic showboated. Even if it meant giving a moonbat a three-year rental on a Senate seat, Roy Moore was too much for Republicans to ask Alabama to take.

    Sadly Moore and the Deadenders didn’t see the huge neon sign Alabama threw up in December 2017 saying WE DON’T WANT YOU, ROY MOORE. Moore and his cronies have convinced themselves only the Dem shenanigans in the race cost him the election. They can never accept the fact that Moore was selling something Alabama didn’t want to buy.

    That is why Moore will launch another doomed bid for Senate with the full backing of the increasingly out-of-touch talk radio mavens.

    And some wonder why I call him Amoral Scumbag.

  459. Wes says:

    In Senate primaries, Alabama Republicans are usually pragmatic. Moore was an exception because Bentley muddied the waters and obscured Moore’s weakness by appointing Strange, thus deeply damaging the former AG’s candidacy.

    Moore won’t have that advantage this time and likely would struggle to make it to a runoff should one be warranted.

  460. jason says:

  461. Tina says:

    Bernie excites me too, but not as much as Hillary.

    -Jebot

  462. Tgca says:

    No popcorn for me. I gave it up for Lent, along with seaweed juice and brussel sprouts. Thank God I still got my Beyond Meat veggie burgers. Yum!

  463. jason says:

    I am still alive after giving up anything Tgca would ever eat, Merlot and chocolate.

    It’s tough, but I am not one to shy away from a challenge.

    Jim Jordan sends criminal referal citing six lies by Cohen to justice.

    Let’s see if Justice is still controlled by drats?

    On another note, why did Looney Dufus have him testify and why did Schiff for Brains meet with him for 10 hours.

  465. jason says:

    I am going to the gun show alone.

    I am glad my wife is not going because she doesn’t really understand the concept of never too much ammo.

  466. Tina says:

    Time to investigate Schiff for Brains, the Jebots favorite House Member, after Mullah Omar.

    Cohen and Schiff seem to have provided conflicting versions of discussions they had in advance of Cohen’s congressional testimony… either Cohen lied again during his testimony or Schiff is lying…again.

    I had a half of cup of blueberries and a half a cup of mango, strawberries, and pineapple last night for dinner along with 2 Beyond Meat burgers (no bread) with melted Havarti cheese. Life is good!

  468. Bitterlaw says:

    Other than the rare blueberry muffin or banana bread, I do not eat fruit. I guess that makes me less fruity than Tgca.

    Zing!

  469. Wes says:

    Many, many moons ago, I worked for Barnes and Noble. As a confirmed bibliophile, I thoroughly enjoyed that job. Then, as now, company policy was that employees had name tags featuring only the first name.

    Now trans employees are expecting to be able to put their preferred gender pronouns on their name tags.

    I have a hard time taking this seriously. Company policy applies to everyone. If trans employees wish to be addressed by certain pronouns I don’t see why politely addressing the issue with customers isn’t a preferable way of handling it as opposed to expecting special privileges obviating a universal policy.

  470. Wes says:

    Not being a rabbit, I don’t see anything worthwhile about Tgca’s diet.

  471. Bitterlaw says:

    I think Tg eats that way to protect himself from his dogs. They look at him and figure he would taste terrible so they don’t bite him.

  472. Tgca says:

    If Wes and Bitter don’t mind being chubby and consuming unhealthy food, that is their choice. I enjoy my daily blueberries, strawberries, and pineapple servings. They are high in antioxidants.

    My dogs eat quite healthy and both are fit and trim…no fat dogs here which is more than I can say for some HHR posters. Both my canine gals enjoy their boiled organic chicken with sweet potatoes, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower sprinkled with blue berries for dinner last night.

  473. Bitterlaw says:

    I wonder if dogs commit suicide?

  474. NYCmike says:

    I wonder why Mormons don’t send flowers.

  475. Wes says:

    I saw one jump out a window to its death once, Bitter. I don’t know if it was intentional.

  476. Wes says:

    I wonder why Mikey and Schumer always support the same candidates in GOP Senate primaries.

  477. Paul says:

    I think you’ll see Kamala Harris move down in the polls. She’s really vilified by many on the left. But at the same time she doesn’t appeal as the centrist.

    I think Harris is slightly more centrist inside a leftist package which does no good. Brown (who is now out of the race) was more liberal inside a centrist package which would be a more favorable spot for a Democrat. The “package” probably also has a lot to do with race and gender.

    the house dems literally just voted to allow illegal aliens to vote in elections

  484. Paul says:

    496: I do not believe that is the case. I assume you are misinformed.

  485. Paul says:

    Oh, I see. Illegals voting in school board elections. They voted to allow local governments to decide on that.

  486. Wes says:

    Maybe I’m missing something here:

    Liberals want illegals to vote and receive in-state college tuition. Meanwhile, actual Americans can’t vote outside their resident precincts or receive in-state tuition for colleges in other states.

    When did America become Wacky Land?

  487. Tina says:

    Yup, in addition to obtaining benefits, piglosi and the all out crazies wants the illegals to vote.

    Sadly, some “real” Conservatives are in favor of this.
