    I think drats go with Cccp bernie since he was robbed the last time by Her Thighness.

  3. jason says:

    Fine with me.

    Let’s decide if we are going full blown socialist or not.

    My early prediction would be that Trump wins 40 states against Sanders.

    He would have a much harder time against Buttigieg.

  4. jason says:

    “Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar gave multiple interviews to a fringe Arab-American television host, Ahmed Tharwat, who calls Israel the “Jewish ISIS” and has compared the terrorist group Hamas to Holocaust victims.

    “Omar blamed “our involvement in other people’s affairs” for terrorism in a 2013 interview with Tharwat.

    “When are we gonna decide or realize that terrorism is a reaction? It’s an ideology, it’s a means of things, it’s not an entity, it’s not a place, people. It’s a reaction to a situation,” Tharwat said in the interview, which Fox News uncovered Monday.”

    Ex MA governor William Weld has announced he will enter the R primary for POTUS on the R side.

    …waiting for lisab’s views on Weld….

  9. Cash Cow TM says:

    There are a mere 20 D candidate in the D clown car for POTUS.

    I am hoping for 50-60 or more.

  10. Tgca says:

    I still think Mayor Butt is the shiny new toy and flavor of the month. I don’t think Mayor Butt will give Trump a run for his money. He is lurching looney leftward on policy already and doing the gay circuit to raise money. Let’s see how being a pawn of West Hollywood will help him in the Midwest when he is forced into advocating many of the ideas of the radical gay left to keep the donations coming.

    Also, he was accused of racist policies towards AA, including by a Dem AA city councilwoman in his city who wants an investigation why he fired the city’s 1st AA police chief. I doubt this is coincidence and it is now getting traction and attention. It seems planned timing to release this all now so I bet there are political interests behind this that don’t want to see him outshine other Dem candidates.

    Like Chicago, there have been accusations of brutality and targeting AA by police in his small city (100k people) with a high poverty rate (nearly 27%, Newark is 28% as a reference point). A judge is reviewing tapes surreptitiously recorded of white police that supposedly document racist actions by them. Mayor Butt refuses to release the tapes saying he would rather it be court ordered which is funny when you compare how they want everything released about Trump.

    AA are not going to embrace a gay white male who is seen as protecting white police in his city and firing the city’s AA police chief from his job that resulted in city settlements. He had to fight off impeachment calls by Jesse Jackson and friends too.

    If he becomes the nominee or a top candidate, this spreads quickly through the AA community and he will have to go into damage control. The real facts won’t matter, it’s the perception. Gay men are not widely embraced in AA culture, especially one that is seen as harming AA interests. My gut feeling tells me he will hurt in the polls among AA.

    Time will tell but I don’t think Mayor Butt is threat to Trump at all at this time.

  11. jason says:

    Tgca has obviously researched Mayor Butt more than I have so I will accept his view that he is not a threat to Trump.

    I still think he is a threat to the nomination. I just think he is the only real outsider here whose baggage may be hidden, at least until now.

    I think the fact he is gay is really not a help, except maybe for fundraising, but the fact he is young, from the Midwest, a mayor, not hostile to religion, etc. is a help.

    Of course, these meteoric rises have a way of crashing, certainly on the R side we have wavelets for candidates like Cain, Newt, Carson, etc. that faded.

    I think Mayor Butt will not fade so quickly unless there really are damming tapes.

  12. Tgca says:

    Ha! Go for it Weld! I think he will have a very rude awakening and see how fast he becomes hated and ridiculed like Flake. Trump generally hovers at 90% GOP support. The MSM and the Dems just lost a major battle on Russian collusion and it looks like POTUS was correct all along about many things regarding the investigation…and now Weld thinks he can take on Trump as folks are starting to move on, and that is even before the IG and AG investigations results regarding DOJ and FBI unethical and illegal behavior is released.

    What is Weld’s rationale for primarying a sitting POTUS who has been the most successful of any GOP POTUS in his 1st 2 years going back at least 50 years. Not even Reagan has racked up the level of successes Trump has in such a short time. Maybe it’s luck or timing but Weld has to explain why he is needed to unsit the GOP leader. This is just another form of attempted impeachment by the Never Trumpers and it will fail. Weld will not win a GE and I bet will not carry MA either, and he will destroy his reputation in the process.

    There are still some with TDS who can’t let go.

  13. Wes says:

    Weld was actually a successful Governor of Massachusetts. If not for his social liberalism he would have been a solid contender for President or at least Veep 20 years ago. That time has passed, and Trump will crush Weld easily in the primaries.

  14. Tgca says:

    Jadon

    I just got wind of all these tapes this weekend. Never heard of it before but many articles on it as it goes back to 2012. Apparently, this goes back to Butts 1st term. He has been stonewalling their release for years, and that has not sat well with AA leaders, especially after the AA police chief filed an EEOC complaint and was relieved of his duties. The judge is supposed to decide shortly whether to release the tapes. The 4 white officers involved have tried to sue to stop it. The FBI got involved at the push of AA leaders after they felt Mayor Butt was not doing much.

    The AA chief of police was supposedly widely respected and a 30 year veteran of the force. He supposedly threatened to fire some of the 4 white officers after listening to the secretly recorded tapes so he knows what’s on them. Once the tapes are released, it will tell a story, and if there truly is racist comments and actions by officers on them, Mayor Butt is going to have a serious issue with AA voters across the US. It is highly unlikely a Dem can win the presidency without 90% of the AA vote, and I think no matter what, Mayor Butt is going to be damaged with many AA voters who will not forget a gay white man using his power to keep hidden racist actions by city employees.

    Factor that, and the fact he will have to challenge Kamala and Corey in debates with large AA audiences watching. The AA community is not ready to let a gay white man outdue someone they consider well respected like Kamala Harris or Booker.

    …and like him or not, but many AA see Booker as someone who gave up a lot to help the people of Newark when he could have prospered in Corp America.

    What has Mayor Butt done for AA?

    And on religion, Mayor Butt is going to have to take positions on the CO Baker. Is he going to say the baker is wrong and a bigot? So much for freedom of religion or speech because he does not like the outcome. If he sides with the baker, he is seen as a threat to religious freedom. If he sides with SCOTUS, he is seen as a traitor by the gays whilevtaking their money.

    Again, the shiney new coin looks good but there appears to be a lot going against him that folks have not seen yet, and that’s even before ya lking about the issues with his high poverty city where it’s hard to make a case his policies have improved it dramatically.

    Finally, I think the Dem party desperately wants to put a woman in the White House and doubtful they want to see many more qualified and older women step aside for a young gay white man.

    I think certain Dems will be out for him but time will tell.

  15. Tgca says:

    I agree with Wes the Masseuse on Weld.

  16. Tgca says:

    Lastly, Mayor Butt has been hiding his sexuality for years. What happens when it comes out he was secretly hooking up on Grindr with young guys? Didn’t Michael say he was visiting IN on spring breaks? Hmm…

  17. lisab says:

    …waiting for lisab’s views on Weld….
    ———————————–

    he was a great governor back in the day

    best known for instituting the statewide two drink minimum in massachusetts.

    he was literally drunk every day for his entire second term, figuratively speaking

  18. lisab says:

    I agree with Wes the Masseuse on Weld.
    —————————————-

    a masseuse is female

  19. lisab says:

    he will destroy his reputation in the process.
    ———————-

    his reputation is that of a raging alcoholic

  20. lisab says:

    It appears Donald Trump did not appreciate Bill Weld comparing his immigration plan to the Holocaust.

    Asked about the Kristallnacht comparison the former Massachusetts made when talking about Trump’s proposal to deport an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants from the country, the Republican candidate responded in true Trump form.

    “I don’t talk about his alcoholism, so why would he talk about my foolishly perceived fascism?” Trump told The New York Times through a spokeswoman. The comment appeared as part of article published Saturday about the rise of right-wing nationalism in other countries amid his campaign’s success.

  21. Wes says:

    A masseuse is also a prostitute. My kneading of others is separate from my sensual liaisons. The former is a compensated service provided within a legal framework. The latter is a nontransactional act of pleasure.

  22. NYCmike says:

    Every time Wes feels the need to explain “masseuse” he reminds me of ‘Francis’:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iN-aXzpQUdw

  23. Tgca says:

    Wes my friend. I knew that would get a reaction from you. Could not help myself. 🙂

    Evidently LisaB read it literally.

    …and just because a compensated service is provided within a legal framework does not mean one can’t enjoy the work perks, after all how many gym trainers don’t enjoy eyeing up some gym candy? 🙂

  24. Wes says:

    Tg, one of the first things I learned was to dissociate myself from my work. I regard clients as bodies to provide therapeutic touch to and quite honestly make as much effort as possible to avoid seeing any part of a person I shouldn’t see outside an intimate encounter.

  25. Wes says:

    I have had gay men proposition me for happy endings. Well, after that, I was happy to end the session by telling them to get dressed and informing the front desk of the need to terminate their patronage.

  26. Tgca says:

    Gay men ask you for happy endings?

    Omg! Was that you? I had no idea. Sorry!

  27. Tgca says:

    Wes

    It is funny how social interactions are different between the breeders and the sausage jockeys. For example, a straight guy who hardly knows you would generally not start getting into detailed conversations about sex with you whereas, often, gay men see nothing with asking or talking to you about detailed sex within a minute of 1st meeting you even in a social setting, as opposed to trying to pick you up. I’ve had male gay professionals just assume they can make comments because they assume you’re thinking similarly. It just seems odd to me but it is quite common in the gay world. I once remember being in a Starbucks predominantly frequented by gay men and this guy is just politely making small talk and then pulls out porno DVDs and offers them to me since he has extra copies. I was astonished he would do such a thing as generally if a straight guy did that to a woman or another straight guy, people would say that’s perverted and creepy.

    Of course, I did not want to offend his generosity so I accepted the gift, and they have subsequently been worn down from extensive viewing so I thought to myself…cheap @$$…he should have used better quality DVDs to mass copy.

    …and that’s one reason how breeders and sausage jockeys are very different.

  28. jason says:

    I guess Weld was successful in the sense he was able to win as a Republican in MA.

    But from what I read his claim to being a “fiscal conservative” has to be taken with a grain a salt.

    I am sure its difficult to govern as a fiscal conservative in MA, but his fiscal record there is not that great.

    On the other hand his claim to be a “social liberal” is well documented.

    In any case his time has passed, of course the MSM will tout him as the conscience of the Republican Party any time Romney gets off the stage to go to the toilet, and his virtues as a “fiscal conservative” will be heard ad nauseam during the primaries.

  29. Bitterlaw says:

    While Wes constantly disparages both my profession and my ability to practice it, I will not return his scorn.

    I personally think that Wes’ job is a waster of time and money with no value, I believe that he is honest and professional in his conduct.

  30. jason says:

    “I will not return his scorn”

    “I personally think that Wes’ job is a waster of time and money with no value”

    Hmmm….. okay, Bitter, no scorn there.

    My view of massage therapists is the same as my view of chiropractors. I am skeptical of the benefits myself, which could be easily explained by the fact I never used either one. However, I know enough people who claim they do wonders for them to be convinced they do help at least some of the clients/patients.

    I compare it somewhat to going to church. I don’t go myself, but I am sure those that do go derive a lot of benefit.

  31. jason says:

    How is this for chutzpah?

    “I think that what we saw in Congress, with the attorney general’s presentation in both the House and the Senate, is someone who considers his principal duty to be protecting Donald Trump, not protecting the rule of law and the democracy that the Justice Department should be defending,” said Clinton”

    I guess she never heard of Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch.

  32. jason says:

    Pelosi takes another shot at AOC…

    “A glass of water with a D next to it would have won that district”.

    Ouch.

  33. jason says:

    Wake up you lazy bastards.

    I know Tgca is chowing down on a breakfast of s’mores dipped in a combined chocolate and caramel sauce washed down with six double shots of organic maple syrup, but what is the excuse for the rest of you?

  34. mnw says:

    My take on Weld:

    Trump will ignore him & have no joint appearances (“debates”) with him.

    Republicans will not turn out to see Weld. Neither will Democrats.

    He can’t raise money, but the MSM will keep him supplied with plentiful free airtime to bash Trump.

    So here’s the totality of his campaign: cable TV appearances. Period.

  35. jason says:

    Of course.

    They will give him endless interviews to bash Trump.

    They will ask him questions like:

    “So what brought about this incredible devotion to civic duty that compels you to sacrifice yourself in this manner for the good of the nation”?

    “Do you think Trump is a common criminal or merely insane”?

    “Do you think your stellar record of fiscal responsibility and bi-partisan accomplishments will contrast well with Trump’s record of stealing from the poor to give to the rich”?

    “Do you think Trump’s policy of killing immigrant children at the border is correct”?

  36. jason says:

    Someone should do a welfare check on Tgca, I think he might be in a sugar induced coma.

  37. Wes says:

    How bad a position are Arkansas Dems in?

    They’re reduced to trying to recruit failed House candidates to challenge Cotton.

  38. jason says:

    Kerrey may be irrelevant, but he is right…

    “Former senator Bob Kerrey (D., Neb.) said that Democrats are suffering from a “delusion” and that President Donald Trump would be right to pardon anyone indicted in the two-year-long investigation conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

    “If there is a man or woman who was convicted and sentenced for not telling the truth about a collusion that never happened, I’d like them to be pardoned,” Kerrey told The Washington Times in an interview.

    Kerrey called out in particular Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Mass.), a frequent and vocal supporter of continuing and expanding the investigation into the possibility of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

    “Personally, I would love to hear Schiff say, ‘Enough. There are other committees that can look at this, and we need to get back to the committee’s mission of making sure the Department of Defense is spending its money correctly,'” Kerry said. “He could gain a lot of credibility with the American people if we go back to the time when that committee was nonpartisan.”

    Kerrey added that Democrats alleging there is clear evidence that Trump obstructed justice because of the number of indicted people who lied to the prosecution is unfair to the nature of high profile cases.

    “I know what kind of power a prosecutor has,” he told the Times. “They have a gun to your head, and they know most of these cases never go to trial. So you have a choice of spending the rest of your life in prison or pleading guilty and maybe doing a year.”

  39. jason says:

    I hear several glasses of water are upset about Pelosi’s comment on AOC.

  40. DW says:

    Another frustrating and disappointing day for Democrats. There will another 10,000 or so babies born alive today, rather than being aborted, and the attending doctors will declare each one a boy or a girl.

  41. jason says:

    If I was Trump I would pardon Flynn, Stone and Papadopoulos, I really don’t see what they did wrong, the “lying” evidence is very weak and unrelated to any of the original mandate of the SC.

    I would commute, not pardon, Manafort’s sentence under the condition he make restitution on the tax evasion and let whatever other fines stand. He would never have been prosecuted were it not for his involvement in the Trump campaign, and I don’t think that is reason to spend 10 years in prison.

    I expect that win or lose the election, that will happen.

  42. Corree says:

    Like I said yesterday, when it comes to Trump “everything falls by the wayside”.

    So I am ok with killing some of these babies if “that is the price we have to pay”.

  43. Wobbles says:

    Miss me?

    I have been trying to recover here in the calm waters of Bogo Pogo from the emotional trauma of Barr’s report that there was no collusion and no grounds for obstruction into the investigation of no collusion. Plus my hero Michael Avennatti will now never be President, this was my go to anti-Trump source, I always checked his tweets before even moving on to Daily Kos and MSNBC.

    I am hopeful I can check in with some nuggets that prove Barr, Rosenstein and Mueller are very wrong and that the report indeed shows there was collusion, obstruction and child molesting. My new hero Adam Schiff, will make sure this gross injustice is rectified and maybe finally we can overturn the results of the election.

    “PARIS—An alarm was raised at Notre Dame at 6:20 p.m. on Monday night—23 minutes before the structure was engulfed in flames—but officials found no sign of a fire.

    Firefighters who responded to a second alert raced to the scene but were unable to tame an inferno that ripped through the 12th century cathedral for the next 9 hours”

    Disney (DIS) is up appx 15% over the last few days. My kind of “burn rate,” altho I don’t own any. One of my kids does.

  54. jason says:

    Maybe Messy can explain how the surgeon analogy fits in here…

    “WASHINGTON — Marianne Williamson, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, has proposed the creation of two new federal agencies: the Department of Peace Creation and the Department of Children and Youth.

    Williamson was asked how the Department of Peace Creation would differ from the State Department.

    “Well, the State Department works with international issues and I do believe that we need a far more robust relationship between the State Department and the Defense Department. I have great respect for the U.S. military. We all should and must. My father fought in World War II and as I said, you know, you’re the president. You’re the commander-in-chief but I see the military like the surgeon. If you’re going to have surgery, you want to have the best surgeon,” Williamson said during a CNN town hall on Sunday evening.”

    I might have to send her a check…

    I wish someone would propose the Department of Wealth Creation.

  57. jason says:

    -Not so sure about this.”

    Right. Me neither. Corey will probably say the destruction of Israel might just be “the price we have to pay” to get rid of Trump.

    Had to spend the day with Dems in DC and of course, msnbc was playing in every office.

    They were all reveling (sic) in the applause Sanders received for the midicare for all speech on Fox. They take it to mean that there is now universal support amongst republicans for not only Medicare for all, but all their proposals (open borders, gun control, higher taxes, etc)

    It amazes me that people either are oblivious to, or refused to acknowledge, the fact that Fox let a decent sized contingent of Bernie supporters into the “town hall” as part of the agreement he made to come on the show.

    They biggest factor we, and most, are overlooking is that the attitude on the D side hasn’t changed in 3 years. They are absolutely and totally convinced that Trump can not win at all and that Americans are 100% behind their proposals. They can not fathom any American (besides r acist s) will vote for him,

    That arrogance is how you lose elections.

    – No, Jason fraud. Wrong as usual.

    After five years straight of participating almost daily in this forum, I decided in late January it was a great time for a break. I was spending too much time here and I became increasingly disgusted with the populist opinions that came to dominate each thread.

    Other than the occasional drive-by posts, I’ll be back early next year when the primaries heat up. Until then, I wish you continued success twisting yourself into a pretzel supporting the person who made you leave the party.

    It’s obvious he just can’t deal with the fact his last hope to overturn the results of the election with some kind of coup didn’t work out.

    He must be devastated his hero Avenatti, his standard go to when it came to anti-Trump propaganda, is an amoral scumbag just like him.

    Amoral Scumbag is a miserable, pathetic excuse for a human being, with the moral compass of a floating turd.

    TGCA’s Fabulous Dinner Tonight:
    Broiled to perfection Beyond Burger sprinkled with Chipotle Smoked Jalepeno Seasoning with melted Gouda cheese garnished with fresh black pepper accompanied by quartered artichokes and arugula smothered in a creamy Alfredo sauce infused with fresh basil, cilantro, oregano, black pepper, and Parmesan cheese culminated by an absolutely delectable Greek yogurt blueberry bar and a palate titilating iced green and white tea flavored very delicately with a smidgen of maple syrup.

    All organic and freshly made of course. Yummy!

    The jalapeños are the only thing in that meal I can imagine eating—and I can’t even eat those now because I have a serious case of ulcers.

    TGCA’s Canine Children’s Dinner Tonight:
    A delectable homemade doggie stew of boiled cubed chicken breast in a garlic basil broth with sweet potatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, and carrots accompanied by super green multi chew tablets, Pet-Tinic palatable liquid vitamin-mineral supplement, chlorophyll tablets, and Omega 3 oil soft gels served warm in Martha Stewart fine dining canine slow feeding bowls followed by a gourmet peanut butter and banana treat and bio active fresh oral greenies made with coconut oil for a natural after dinner teeth cleansing. Woof!

    All ingredients organic of course and stew made with bottled water.

    have you been tested for h. pylori?

    it is a common bacteria that causes ulcers. it is common to test for it in other countries, but some places in the usa do not test for it, because it is not as common in the usa.

    if you have h. pylori, you can be cured of ulcers in 4 months. if you have it, and they do not test for it, nothing the doctors do will work.

    the test for it is … ummmmmmmm … not so pleasant

  91. lisab says:

    because of his busy schedule as a masseuse.

  97. Tgca says:

    I have nothing against a good therapeutic massage, deep tissue conditioning, and electrical stimulation. After my cervical spine surgery, I went a few times weekly for months to loosen muscles up because I had spasms, extreme tightness, and limited mobility and the treatment helped as the nerves came back from a dormant stage they went into after the surgery. My massage dude was a nice friendly middle-aged married Latino guy and we chatted about many events of the day…he was a Trump supporter too!

    He did not offer, and I did not seek happy endings which clearly seems to be something confined to practices in North Carolina. -:)

  105. Wes says:

    As for my condition, Lisa, the hospital was unable to determine a cause. However, I have stopped drinking and eating spicy food to give them time to heal ahead of my follow-up appointment later this month to see if any further action like surgery is needed.

  106. Wes says:

    Tgca, I would strongly advise against ever asking an LMBT in NC for a happy ending. You’ll make your therapist happy because he or she will then be able to end the session early and keep the money you’ve already paid while informing you you are no longer welcome at the spa.

    I am glad that Tina derives benefit from massage therapy. I just know that as an attorney, when that is all the treatment that the injured person receives, even their attorney knows the case is over.

  109. Bitterlaw says:

    It is very ironic that Wes has ulcers and I do not. Wes takes care of myself, exercises, and eats a healthy diet. My 2 main food groups are soda and salt. I am never relaxed and sent Almaty as many e-mails on vacation as I do in my office. I also refuse to put an “out of office” message on my phone or e-mails. I just call or e-mail the person back right away.

    Yet, I do not have ulcers. Maybe the difference is that Wes drinks wine and preys upon emotionally damaged women.

  110. Bitterlaw says:

    Tgca’s starvation diet for his dogs is just mean. The only reason they have not eaten him is that there is no meat on his bones, either.

    He already threw 9-month old fetuses, Israel and capitalism under the bus, you think he cares about the consequences to the system if the election results are overturned?

    The UCP won 63 of the 87 seats of the legislature, provisional results say.

    Leader Jason Kenney, a former federal cabinet minister, will be the next premier of Alberta.

    The win could reverberate beyond Alberta, setting the party on a collision course with PM Justin Trudeau’s Liberals over climate change.

    Mr Kenney has vowed to do away with a provincial carbon levy and to join four other provinces – including Ontario, Canada’s most populous province – in fighting the federal government in court over its carbon tax.”

The fact is he offered to help him/her break codes to gather classified information.

    I know some of the moonbats who thought he was a hero when he was publishing classified information are now angry at him for releasing Podesta’s emails, but I have consistently labeled Assange a criminal who should be prosecuted.

    “A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 61% of Likely U.S. Voters think it’s likely that WikiLeaks’ release of classified documents has hurt U.S. national security, with 30% who say it’s Very Likely. Twenty-nine percent (29%) consider that unlikely, but that includes only 7% who say it’s Not At All Likely.”

    Gas prices in California now are well over $4.00 a gallon. The gas prices in my area are at about $4.35 a gallon. This is the price throughout California now. Just over the border in Oregon you can get gas for $3.25 a gallon. Unfortunately, I just completed a trip from Seattle to San Diego, and throughout California gas is well over $4.00 a gallon. In Utah, by contrast, the gas price is about $2.30 a gallon.

    California requires a special blend for gasoline, which requires it to be imported and processed at a limited number of refineries on the coast. When one of the refineries is down for maintenance, gasoline prices skyrocket. As with all socialist systems, shortages creates high prices. Those hurt the most are the poor; yet the social justice advocates are silent?

    While Corey compares Trump to Nazis…

    “Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib met with members of the anti-Israel organization American Muslims for Palestine during an advocacy event they hosted on Capitol Hill.
    Tlaib was photographed after sitting down with Joe Catron, an extreme anti-Israel activist and outspoken terrorist supporter.

    Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib met with another extreme anti-Israel activist and terrorist-supporter in her Capitol Hill congressional office during American Muslims for Palestine Advocacy Day in mid-April.

    American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) hosted the annual advocacy and training event, which was open to all adults who “seek justice in Palestine.” Additional criteria for participation includes supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to punish Israel by economically depriving the country for its alleged mistreatment of Palestinians living in the Gaza =
    The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) describes the BDS movement as “the most prominent effort to undermine Israel’s existence” and has further criticized AMP for promoting anti-Semitism under the guise of educating Americans. AMP hailed the ADL’s anti-Israel description of its organization.”

    Corey to say since I am not Jewish I should not comment on anti-semitism in 3, 2, 1….

  135. CG says:

    There are many things you shouldn’t comment on because you have no actual values or convictions. You just worship power for power’s sake.

    One can be both opposed to the anti-Semitic associates of people like Tlaib on the Far Left as well as those on the Alt-Righ.t who have found a savior in in Donald Trump, aka Duke-Lite.

  139. dblaikie says:

    Frankly I think that all efforts of people (like Corey) try to draw parallels between Trump and Nazis dishonors the millions who died in Auschwitz and the other death camps that were pure evil. It also belittles the sacrifice of the thousands of WW II veterans, like my Dad (36th armored infantry regiment of the 3rd armored division) who liberated death camps like Nordhausen. For Dad that action helped to justify weeks of hand to hand combat because he helped to stop a great evil.

    So Corey you don’t have to like Trump but just shut the hell up with comparing him to Hitler!! Donald Trump is nothing like the Nazis. To be fair neither is anyone else in American politics. Quit trying to compare what is going on at the border with what happened at Bergen Belsen.

  140. Phil says:

    I don’t think you ought to be laying that crap on anyone here. It’s way beyond tiresome.

  141. CG says:

    I have never, ever said Trump was a Nazi.

    I have said he is a bigot, which nobody has ever really disagreed with and I have said he is “Duke-Lite.” That was clear during the campaign.

    As a Jew, I was brought up to care about bigotry and injustice and unfairness to not only Jews.

    -jason is the one who said directly that Trump was a “racist” a “fascist” and a “Klansman” and since he refuses to claim he was wrong to say any of the these, we just have to conclude that Trump’s power and the validation it gives him makes all the rest irrelevant now.

  142. mnw says:

    SDC & jason

    RE: gas tax increase:

    No matter where one lives, I’m certain gas prices have increased markedly since Jan. 1st– in my area by +26%. And that’s the SAME filling station, so there’s no statistical noise. That station, btw, usually has the cheapest gas in my area.

    Why is a gas tax increase a particularly dreadful idea right NOW?

    1) Inflation has been mercifully tame, with just ONE exception– gasoline.

    2) Gasoline demand is “inelastic,” as the economists like to say. That means, everybody has to buy it, no matter what it costs.

    3) U.S. economic growth has been slowing. Not contracting, but the trend is obvious both to economists, and to anybody who reads WSJ; CNBC; etc.

    How can we give the economy a little push away from slow growth, & toward recession? Why, a gas tax increase, of course– because that would increase the price of EVERYTHING– possibly excepting free love.

    Who would be most alarmed about a big, sudden jump in the price of a gallon of unleaded? The folks who voted for Trump! They don’t ride the subway, & they didn’t buy a Prius.

    jason is right (an opportunity for a rare photo) about the DEMs supporting “Trump’s gas tax proposal,” & then driving it right up his wazoo in Nov. 2020.

    And in conclusion… yellow vests.

    However, I can say that the Trump Administration policy at the border is very wrong, even as it is not Bergen Belsen.

    Or does it just have to be one or the other in the mind of a Trump Apologist?

  145. dblaikie says:

    Corey that is pure drivel. No you don’t call Trump a Nazi but you have no problem insinuating that is just who he is. Just drop the Nazi comparisons.

  146. CG says:

    149 is really an example of sort of crazy logic. There is no way an educated person could actually say something.

    It’s basically, “no you don’t say it but because I want to think you say it I am going to pretend you say it.”

    I have never said Trump is a Nazi. I have said many times that Trump is a horrible human being and a terrible President.

    Since nobody bothers to even defend him on those fronts, they just attack the messenger. Apparently, anything sort of being a Nazi is ok and fair game to distort the concepts of his critics.

  147. NYCmike says:

    “As a Jew, I was brought up to care about bigotry and injustice and unfairness to not only Jews.”

    -What horsesh*t!

    If that is truly the case, you have an odd way of going around showing it.

    Trump is a saint compared to people like Tlaib, Omar, and just about any other Democrat, who only see people as a member of specific minority groups to be offered goodies derived from their positions as elected officials.

  148. CG says:

  151. NYCmike says:

    “However, I can say that the Trump Administration policy at the border is very wrong, even as it is not Bergen Belsen.”

    -Which policy would that be?

    NOT ALLOWING non-citizens into the country without having the proper paperwork, along with plans on going back to their home country?

  152. CG says:

    Since I have never expressed admiration or support for Tlaib, Omar, et al, I fail to see how that should cause me to not be critical of Trump.

    I just think many of you all are carrying a heavy burden on your hearts and souls every day having to defend such an unworthy person and it causes you to lash out. It’s ok. I can take it. I even enjoy it. If it prevents you from doing worse out there in the “real world”, it’s a good thing.

  153. CG says:

    “How many times have we had to endure that the Trump caged children and put them in concentration camps just like the Nazis.”

    Maybe you are talking about someone else, but that is never a comparison I have made and you know it.

    Like many other conservatives and many other Republicans, I believe the Trump Administration policy of separating children from their parents at the border was a huge mistake unworthy of our country.

  154. jason says:

    -jason is the one who said directly that Trump was a “racist” a “fascist” and a “Klansman”

    Zzzzz…

    I already said IF I ever called Trump a Klansman I owe him an apology.

    I also said I should not have called him a fascist, there is no basis for that.

    As for racist, I thought his comment on the Mexican judge was racist, I don’t apologize for that.

    I also called him a liberal Democrat, based on his previous comments. While I don’t think he is really a conservative, I have been forced to admit that except for some aspects of trade and foreign policy, he has not governed as a liberal Dem.

    And of course, as I have said many times, my comments on Trump were based on the record of his comments on the Internet and his campaign rhetoric during the primaries.

    That being said, since he has been President, I have seen nothing racist or fascist that he has said or done. Stupid, yes. Racist no.

    So since I am “transactional”, I have changed some of my views of Trump based on his record as President for over 2 years now.

    I maintain that is a much more logical and sensible approach than still being stuck in the 2016 primaries which have been over for 2/12 years.

  155. CG says:

    The only people on HHR who are talking about “concentration camps” and comparing Trump to Hitler are his supporters/apologists.

    Since one is unable to defend him on the merits, they must try to find the most extreme example of possible criticism in order to try to render what they cannot defend moot.

    We saw this for eight years with the Obama apologists too.

    Get real, if one of my parishioners starts trying to label people into monsters I will tell them that is wrong.

    Just so you in my ministry I have always served in churches that were split along political lines. I never mention politics in the pupit, even though I keep my integrity in personal conversation. Liberal or conservative, black or white, straight or gay, the people I minister too in my congregation have all my prayers and support. So drop saying I am biased in my career. Corey, believe it or not, I don’t believe in identity politics.

    It’s an odd place to choose to do it, but so be it. You are not exactly a fair person here though by claiming someone has said something that you know they have not said.

  161. CG says:

    We can disagree then on separation policy NYC. Many agree with you. Many, including a great many on the right, also agree with me.

    But that does not mean I have said anything about “concentration camps” or comparing the act to what occurred in Nazi Europe. I have said nothing of the sort.

  162. mnw says:

    Anybody REALLY think that POS was EVER going to leave?

  163. NYCmike says:

    “One does not have to pick and choose between extremists.”

    -Exactly.

    How is Trump an “extremist”?

    Because he believes NON-CITIZENS do not have the same rights as citizens?

    Because he believes, correctly, that these “parents” who drag their children into dangerous situations are foolish, and also sometimes fake.

    The law is the law. We either have a sovereign country, with borders, or we don’t.

    Which one do you prefer?

  164. jason says:

    Corey, as a pathological liar, gets caught in lies all the time.

    He has indeed compared Trump to Nazis, does it all the time, just compared him again on immigration, even though he never complained when Obama “separated children from parents” in exactly the same manner.

  165. CG says:

    I believe we can have a country in which borders are enforced and which children are not separated from their parents.

    There have been many suggestions put forward to make this possible, including increasing the number of immigration judges to deal with what is a humanitarian crisis at the border.

    When deportations are necessary, as they often are, parents and children should be kept together and deported together.

    Trump has made recent statements in which he lamented the whole concept of immigration judges.

    He wants a problem more than a solution.

    Trump is an extreme person in general though. It’s not specifically about his horrible (and thoroughly inconsistent) immigration statements/proposals.

    He is extreme in his worship of self. That is not a good thing in a leader. You are the one who says you ignore him up to 99% of the time. That’s definitely not a good thing in a leader either, but I suppose it somewhat eases your guilty conscience.

  166. CG says:

    I have never said Trump was a Nazi. I do believe anybody in power, from any country, and from any ideology, can and should be compared to the horrible figures from the past, to show if there are similarities and how there are differences in order to never repeat the horrific lessons of history. That should not be remotely controversial.

    The Obama Admin did not have a policy of separating children from parents. They considered it, but did not do so. That is a fact. The photos of “children in cages” during the Obama Admin are those of unaccompanied minors. There were no parents to separate them from as would be the same case as those who came that way under Trump.

  167. NYCmike says:

    I guess “CG” is correct……Trump is extreme.

    Moved embassy to Jerusalem.
    Recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel.
    Asked the NATO countries to pay more for the common defense.
    Ripped up the Iran deal.
    Nominated hundreds of conservative justices.
    Got rid of thousands of rules and regulations which were handcuffing businesses, mainly smaller ones.
    Pushed for Eastern European allies to have better equipment to deter Russia.
    Has promoted pro-life policies in the US and abroad.

  168. dblaikie says:

    There is nothing to get out. However I do tire of people who attack Trump by labeling him. I think it is wrong to say he hates hispanics, or african americans or women or anyone else. I do apologize for lumping you in with these nuts in every instance. Maybe I have been too hard, but I am angry at the level of discourse in our country

  169. CG says:

    171. You are a far cheaper date than I.

    I care about far more.

  170. dblaikie says:

    170 There you go again! And just when I said I was sorry. Sad.

  171. CG says:

    “However I do tire of people who attack Trump by labeling him.”

    Definition of a snowflake db.

    Trump labels people all the time. You never complain about that. But he cannot be labeled?

    Just be accurate in how I label him. You already admit that I have never said he was a Nazi but feel you have the right to claim I have. It doesn’t work that way.

    Try harder to defend him using actual facts.

  172. NYCmike says:

    “You are the one who says you ignore him up to 99% of the time.”

    -Why do you keep lying about this?

    I have repeatedly corrected you on this issue.

    I stated that I ignore 90-99% of what ALL POLITICIANS say.

    I like to look at the actual actions taken by a politician in determining their position on a specific issue.

  173. CG says:

    There is also rank hypocrisy from those who suggest that people have unfairly compared Trump to Hitler, which is certainly not something I have done, but openly called other former posters here Nazis, embraced references to Hillary Clinton as “Hitlery”, and most recently stood completely silent and moot for two years while Robert Mueller, a decorated war hero, and thoroughly respected public servant was referred to as “Fuhrer” literally hundreds of times.

    I repeat that the *only* Trump support/apologist to ever express a single word of disagreement with labeling Mueller that way was Bitterlaw.

    Anybody here complaining today about people being “unfair” to Trump really needs to take a long look in the mirror about what you have tolerated.

  174. dblaikie says:

    No Corey I said you like to compare him to the Nazis which you have admitted. I say it again, drop the Nazi analogies.

  175. NYCmike says:

    “I care about far more.”

    -Make your list.

    Let’s see which line items have to do with actual policy versus your personal opinion on President Trump’s morality.

    I would also ask that when you make your morality (immorality) list, you put a date next to it, to show when Trump’s personal actions were such an issue.

  176. CG says:

    Anybody who honestly believes they live in a country where every politician lies up to 99% of the time should want to find a better country to live in stat.

    I don’t believe for a second that NYCMike actually thinks that. It just gives him leeway to shrug his shoulders about Trump.

  177. CG says:

    I have not compared Trump to Nazis. He is very different than Nazis. I have said he is also very complimentary of strongmen leaders and despots. That is troubling enough.

    That is very different from what I said about how every world leader of every ideology should be able to be held up to what we have seen throughout history.

    There seems to be nobody willing to defend Trump’s attitudes towards Putin, Kim Jong Un, etc and the way he kisses up to them. You just think it should be overlooked. No other “leader” would get such a pass.

  178. NYCmike says:

    “I don’t believe for a second that NYCMike actually thinks that.”

    -You don’t believe I place more importance on ACTION versus TALK?

    Please tell me why you think that.

    Also, please tell me why you think TALK is more important than the actual ACTION TAKEN.

    It does explain why you still like Bush 41……he did once SAY “No New Taxes!”.

    His ACTIONS in that regard were quite different.

  179. CG says:

    Well, besides Jews, I also care about Christians, and I care about African-Americans, Hispanics, immigrants, refugees, Mormons, Muslims, and anybody who faces persecution or injustice anywhere in the world.

    Just because Trump may admire us Jews for our money making ability and deal-making skills over say the Central Park Five, whom he called animals and called to be executed, even after DNA evidence and somebody else’s confession, proved they never raped the woman in question, does not make me feel any better about what kind of person he is.

  180. NYCmike says:

    “Well, besides Jews, I also care about Christians, and I care about African-Americans, Hispanics, immigrants, refugees, Mormons, Muslims, and anybody who faces persecution or injustice anywhere in the world.”

    -Has everyone gotten in their virtue-signaling speech for the week?

    “CG” is getting in a month’s worth all in one day!

    What a tool!

  181. CG says:

    Now, since the report is coming out tomorrow, who here is willing to stand by a comparison of Robert Mueller to Hitler?

    Anyone?

    If not, just about every one of you sure choose to be silent about that for a long time.

    Any reason why?

  182. CG says:

    I consider myself a tool for good, in whatever small way I can. As “my people” say, it’s about Mitzvot.

    Why should I care about what some dude in NYC thinks?

  183. mnw says:

    The loooong goodbye.

    This is the little geek whose boss took his iPhone away, as I recall. I sometimes confuse this one with Wobbles-the-pilot, though.

  184. NYCmike says:

    “Any reason why?”

    -Saint Mueller could have asked the majority of the people on this board, even Robbie, about collusion, or lack thereof, almost 2 years ago, and saved a heck of a lot of $$, newspapers, and media air-time.

    BUT, Saint Mueller didn’t.

    Tina made a comparison of Mueller to Hitler in terms of him leading a fascist undertaking to get rid of a duly elected President, with tactics worthy of a strongman from a dictatorship. It was over the top.

    BUT, Tina isn’t a host on CNN or MSNBC, who made the Trump/Hitler comparison on national media airwaves. (same they did to Bush, McCain, Romney by the way)

    If you don’t see the difference, tough to help you.

  185. CG says:

    I am quite consistent in maintaining that while I thoroughly despise Donald Trump claiming that he is a Nazi or resembles the horrific action of Nazis is completely without merit. I have never said anything different and have argued about this with leftists both in person and online.

    I can also be just as consistent in saying while I revile the politics and apparent personal attitude of someone like Ilhan Omar, and do not find her worthy of holding any office, claims that she hold any culpability for the actions committed on 9/11/01 are also completely without merit.

    But Trump will simply play the political game and claim she has blood on her hands for it.

  186. CG says:

    So, in other words, it was ok that Mueller was called by Hitler’s title literally hundreds of times because it made you feel better.

    It is beyond stupid to suggest that Mueller should have been interviewing people on a political blog. He had people who were actually involved in relevant matters to interview, etc. I have no reason to believe he did his job inappropriately.

  187. CG says:

    And when have I ever been a host on CNN/MSNBC, etc?

    You snowflakes literally freak out at *any* criticism of Donald Trump. Anything. Total freak outs.

    So, since I am not a cable news host, why don’t I have the same freedom as Tina?

    And this is with the admission that none of you can find anything in which I have ever suggested Trump was Hitler or a Nazi, which is far different than the very specific word used by Tina perhaps thousands of times and which not a single Trump supporter/apologist (except Bitterlaw) ever as much lifted an eyebrow about.

  188. Wes says:

    I’ve never seen so much meandering double talk since I read Kafka’s The Trial.

  189. NYCmike says:

    “I consider myself a tool for good, in whatever small way I can.”

    -YET, despite over 2 years of evidence which shows otherwise, you think Hillary would have governed better than Trump, who has governed overwhelmingly in a fashion more typical of a conservative Republican than a Democrat.

  190. NYCmike says:

    “because it made you feel better.”

    -Did I mention feelings?

    I stated “It was over the top.”.

  191. CG says:

    Totally irrelevant.

    Trump would have been better in some areas. Hillary would have been better in some areas. I wanted anyone else than either.

    Who cares? He won, he “governs”, he is the one who has to bear the burden of scrutiny.

  192. NYCmike says:

    https://pjmedia.com/trending/christine-blasey-ford-makes-time-magazines-100-most-influential-people-of-2019/

    -YUP, Trump is more of a long-term issue than the “objective” media stewards of our time.

  193. NYCmike says:

    “Hillary would have been better in some areas.”

    -List?

    Also, noticed that you didn’t list anything from earlier.

    You could also answer this: “Also, please tell me why you think TALK is more important than the actual ACTION TAKEN.”

  194. CG says:

    Yes, in my view the Presidency of the United States is a “bigger deal” than the Time 100 List or any list in any magazine.

    To Trump, they may be one in the same. He made the list too, sadly. You didn’t mention that.

    And the people on the left freaking out about Brett Kavanuagh also making the list look just as foolish.

  195. NYCmike says:

    Where would Hillary have been better than Trump?

  196. CG says:

    Even jason said throughout the campaign that Hillary would make a far better President than Trump on foreign policy.

    I tend to agree. I think she would have governed differently than Obama in the realm of foreign policy to a certain extent. I would likely have had much to criticize her for across the board, but I do not think she would have instituted tariffs (despite her desperate campaign rhetoric) nor do I feel she would have kissed the ass of Kim Jung Un in what turned out to be such a humiliating failure (at least for now)

    It’s all irrelevant though. She lost. She has no power. The person who won has the responsibility.

  197. CG says:

    And I think she would have been tougher on Russia. Perhaps that is most important.

    Hillary has many many flaws, but I think she is tougher and more of a realist than Obama.

  198. CG says:

    Can the St. Louis Cardinals *ever* beat the Milwaukee Brewers?

    What a worthless franchise.

  199. NYCmike says:

    Ok.

    So you will ignore the actions taken by the United States to help defend the countries on Russia’s western border, while ignoring Hillary’s past actions (the Staples re-set button).

    You will ignore the actions in Syria dealing with Russian mercenary forces, and the fact that Russia has not been left alone, but has to contend with factions backed up by the United States military.

    You will continue to blather on about “humiliating failure” while ignoring the problem is over 60 years old, and has been punted by two Bush Presidencies, as well as others.

    You will ignore that troops have NOT been put in danger except when totally necessary, and in those situations, the military has been instructed to destroy, not do pin-prick attacks (Thank You, Secretary Mattis!).

    You will ignore this administrations attempts to get the European allies to put more money towards the common defense of the treaty area.

  200. NYCmike says:

    You will also ignore the attempt by Trump, not sure if finalized, to get Germany to buy more natural gas from us, as opposed to getting it from Russia.

  201. CG says:

    I said she would be better in dealing with Russia (especially after they tried to screw her over-and in this case would have failed) than Trump (or Obama). I didn’t say she would be better than Mitt Romney in dealing with them.

    And why was Mattis fired?

    Was that a mistake?

    Oh yeah, you don’t think Trump ever makes mistakes.

  202. NYCmike says:

    “And why was Mattis fired?

    Was that a mistake?

    Oh yeah, you don’t think Trump ever makes mistakes.”

    -I’ll take them one at a time:

    Not sure.

    Not sure, time will tell.

    More b*llsh*t from you.

  203. CG says:

    I can “remember” all those things and also remember the completely embarrassing display put on while standing next to Putin in Helsinki.

    That you will choose to forget.

    I will also not forget that Trump has excused Putin by saying “America does a lot of killing too.” Wrong. Completely outrageous. Imagine if Obama had said that…

    Now, just in the past few days, Trump has denied any knowledge of Wikileaks. This is despite his own Justice Department doing the right thing on the matter, he is claiming complete ignorance as to the Russian owned, terrorist nature of Julian Assange and Wikileaks. Of course, Trump was on tape several times in the campaign saying how much he “loved” Wikileaks and how “great” Wikileaks was. Now, they “are not my deal in life.”

    To this day, Trump has never said one critical word about Vladimir Putin. Why is that? He has had plenty bad to say about virtually everyone else.

    If Hillary told him to GFH with the cameras rolling, he would deserve it, would he not?

  204. NYCmike says:

    “I didn’t say she would be better than Mitt Romney in dealing with them.”

    -Who mentioned Romney?

    Trump has acted pretty similar to how I thought Romney would have in the foreign policy sphere.

  205. jason says:

    Even jason said throughout the campaign that Hillary would make a far better President than Trump on foreign policy”

    LOL

    Actually what I said was “I prefer Hillary on trade and some aspects of foreign policy”.

    But I made clear I preferred Trump’s policies on just about everything else.

    But again, why are we still talking about what I thought about Trump in 2016 when he has been President for 2 + years.

    I think Trump’s rants about NATO and “paying for your fair share” are idiotic, it completely ignores the fact NATO is out interest too, in many cases more in our interest than some of the other members.

    Outside of that, I am fine with most other aspects of Trump’s foreign policy. Hillary would never have done two things that I consider important, the N Korea and the Iran deal policies.

    Every morning I wake up and thank God Hillary is not President.

    And the fact Trump has turned out to be a much better President than either me or Corey thought he would be (even if I am the only one to acknowledge it) makes me even more thankful

  206. NYCmike says:

    “To this day, Trump has never said one critical word about Vladimir Putin. ”

    -Will it make you “feel” better if he did?

    Is that the goal when dealing with leaders of foreign countries with nuclear weapons and weapons which can take out satellites?

  207. CG says:

    Not at all how Romney would act. Certainly not in regards to a worldwide trade war or coddling Russia publicly or humiliating the country before Kim Jong Un. Laying out a public time table to withdraw troops?

    Remember, the appeal that the die-hard Trumpists always claimed is how *different* he would be on foreign policy than Romney and “the usual Republicans.”

    To them, it was a good thing that Trump opposed Iraq and that he supposedly opposed going into Afghanistan, in which he and Barbara Lee of Oakland were literally the only smart people on.

    You don’t even have your talking points straight.

    On foreign policy, Trump is a by the book Daily Kos leftist.

    The difference is that he has people who work for him who are thankfully not.

    So, either Trump is weak enough to just let people roll over him for the most part and do their own bidding or he, like jason, is completely transactional and will just go along with whatever strokes his ego. It’s probably a bit of both.

  208. CG says:

    Yes, it would make me feel better if Trump would actually say something nasty about Putin. After all, he says something nasty about everyone else. He has spent the past several days fighting with Cher on Twitter.

    That he doesn’t ever say anything negative about Putin stands out especially and makes it seem as if Putin does have something over Trump’s head, which by extension means over our entire country.

  209. jason says:

    To this day, Trump has never said one critical word about Vladimir Putin.”

    That is a complete lie, straight out of the MSM fake news dept.

    “President Donald Trump on Sunday strongly condemned what he described in tweets as a “mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria” that allegedly left women and children dead.

    He laid the blame squarely at the feet of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Russia and Iran for backing resident Bashar al-Assad, who he called an “animal.” Trump also warned, “Big price to pay.”

    and

    Donald Trump may have stood up Vladimir Putin once too often. After the U.S. president snubbed the Kremlin leader twice in less than a month, Russia is finally losing faith in Trump’s promise to improve relations and bracing instead for increased tensions.

    Feted by Russian lawmakers with applause and champagne after his election in 2016, Trump’s mercurial decision-making is increasingly seen as a liability in Moscow. Russian officials were taken aback when Trump tweeted that he was canceling talks with Putin at the Group of 20 summit in Argentina hours before they were due to meet last week, a decision one of them called really bad. Since then, Russian frustration has steadily grown, according to four senior officials, who asked not to be identified discussing internal matters.

    “This is a signal for us that it’s difficult to deal with this person, that he’s unreliable and unsuitable as a partner,” said Andrey Kortunov, head of the Russian International Affairs Council,”

  210. CG says:

    Again, he has never named Putin as the source of any problem.

    He has gone out of his way to say that Putin is not the problem.

  211. jason says:

    On foreign policy, Trump is a by the book Daily Kos leftist.”

    Complete BS.

    What is straight out of the Daily Kos book is your talking points about Trump.

  212. CG says:

    If someone can find one example of Trump on camera making a negative comment about Putin and linking it here or something clearly attributed to Trump personally in writing in which he directly criticizes Putin by name, I will retract.

  216. CG says:

    I have compared Trump to Hitler in which I have said the ways he is not Hitler.

    Clearly, I have consistently said Trump is “not as bad as Hitler.” So, rejoice Trumpsters.

    I haven’t even said Trump is as bad as David Duke. I just say he is Duke-Lite.

    What I was accused of doing is saying that Trump is Hitler or as bad as Hitler or engaged in specific policies in which I have used terms like “concentration camps” or “Bergen Belsen.”

  218. CG says:

    Trump has bent over backwards to avoid saying the name Putin in association with anything bad.

    Others in his Administration have said it and he has begrudgingly admitted that Russia tried to interfere in the election but he has said nothing to indicate he holds Putin responsible.

    Some people apparently do not understand the concept of “compare and contrast.”

    Sure, I have compared and contrasted them. I think every world leader should be, as I have said, including those that I hold in great affection.

    It is simply untrue though, as db would go on to concede, that I ever said that Trump engaged in opening “concentration camps” or used the tactics of Nazi Europe.

    So, I am not even sure what you are all so bent out of shape over unless there are guilty consciences involved.

    From Day 1 I have said Trump is not as bad as Hitler while virtually nobody ever took issue with Robert Mueller literally being called Hitler.
    NYC defended the very comparison today.

  222. CG says:

    Also, “not as bad as Hitler”

    Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, bunu, and Hillary Clinton?

    Does anyone wish to disagree?

    Far better than Hitler and far more honorable than Donald Trump= Robert Mueller

  223. lisab says:

    Coree,

    the ONLY people comparing trump to hitler are trump supporters …

    now compared to hitler trump ….

  224. CG says:

    When “concentration camps”. etc are referenced, yes.

    Now we can definitely have a discussion in which comparisons can be made to how Hitler and Trump both used the politics of grievances and scapegoating in the pursuit of power.

    And the same discussion can be held regarding the rhetoric used by Hitler and the rhetoric used by many on the Far Left for a long time.

    There would be similarities and there would be differences in all cases.

    If you are honestly suggesting that Russia is going to launch a nuclear attack on the United States if Donald Trump criticizes Putin personally, and that is what Trump fears, you are even goofier than I thought.

  243. CG says:

    If Robert Mueller has indeed concluded that Trump did not personally conspire with Vladmir Putin in regards to the election, I will be happy to hear that and more than willing to take Mueller at his word.

    However, there seems to be all sorts of evidence that Trump is personally bamboozled/indebted to Putin over something.

    He thinks they can be “best friends.”

  244. lisab says:

    i voted for jill stein,

    but unlike what some said a few weeks ago, i did NOT vote for her because i would never vote for the democrat party

    in fact, my uncle was a bundler for the democrats and i used to work for him at political dinners and such.

    i voted for jill stein, as many did, specifically so the dems would know that they could have gotten our votes, but we refused to vote for hillary

  258. CG says:

    As Governor, Romney actually opposed same sex marriage in his state quite strongly at the time. He was in the national forefront of that effort. Somehow there is some confusion there, but I suppose you can look it up.

    As a Jew, I was brought up to care about bigotry and injustice and unfairness to not only Jews.

    ***********************************************************************

    Sorry to burst your bubble, Corey, but perhaps you should stay caring more about fellow Jews than other minorities because, I hate to break it to you, most of them don’t care much for you. Muslims as a whole outright hate you (many would be happier if you didn’t exist at all), blacks as a group don’t trust you and sympathize with the former group who would rather see you dead. Hispanics are neutral at best (I see this in my own family and in the churches), and Asians are apparently too busy trying to become upscale Marxist whites if their voting patterns and online presence means anything. I guess you still have the Mormons, though.

    As for Trump, I do my best to ignore him. I’m not happy he’s POTUS, but I’m thrilled that a Democrat isn’t occupying the same position. They have chosen to mark themselves the enemies within, and whatever his flaws, Trump will not get us killed (unlike the Dems who hate us and could care less if the a$$holes they let into this country kill us all). He is an embarrassment in many respects, but then, I could give two bowel movements what snotty Euro-Marxist trash think about our country anyhow; they are everything they claim to hate, close-minded, judgmental, and frankly, not that intelligent (just like their Dem counterparts here); they all can GFT as far as I’m concerned.

    (Don’t worry, Jason, my wife and her family are Jewish, so I have at least a partial claim to be able to respond to this.)

    no …

    what i respected about him was that he GREATLY opposed the issue, even spent a couple of million of his own personal money fighting it

    yet he followed by the court ruling and did not try to stall to wait out the issue.

    as a lockean, i respect those who abide by elections and judicial decisions.

    this is also why i mock you and other “resisters” and have no real problem with trump being president.

    he won, the next election is in 2020. we will vote again then.

There was no Russian Collusion with anybody in this country. And, the obstruction charge, IMO, was deliberately left for Barr to interpret, leaving an opening for the resistance to pout and cry foul, like they’re doing.

    Basically, the dems want to extend the Mueller misery as long as possible in order to keep feeding the hatred of their base.

    “U.S. trade deficit hits eight-month low on weak Chinese imports

    WED, APR 17 2019 • 1:18 PM EDT

    The trade deficit tumbled 3.4 percent to $49.4 billion in February, the lowest level since June 2018. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the trade shortfall widening to $53.5 billion in February.
    The politically sensitive goods trade deficit with China – a focus of the Trump administration’s protectionist trade policy – decreased 28.2 percent to $24.8 billion in February as imports from the world’s No. 2 economy plunged 20.2 percent. U.S. exports to China jumped 18.2 percent in February.

  282. Messy says:

    testing, one two three.

  283. Chicon says:

    SDC – makes sense the trade deficit would narrow with the tariffs. Prices of Chinese stuff has gone up, allowing the buyers to choose American stuff to a certain degree. This is probably good for some American workers. However, it also means higher prices for American consumers, who in the end pay the tariff.

    If this narrowing results in China changing their ways, it will have been worth it. If not, the result is shifting some pain from American workers to the broader economy.

The lead prosecutor was at Clinton’s campaign party on election night. Strock (sp?) was on the team. No surprise they concluded that Trump did not succeed in proving his innocence. Opens the door to allegations that the investigation was part of coup.

  322. mnw says:

    My feelings about pursuing a “counterattack” investigation are mixed. I see it as a political liability for Trump & the GOP, but I can see the merits of exposing all of it to the cleansing sunlight, too.

    Btw, I hate the chant “Lock her up!” Foreigners call using criminal law as a political weapon “the American disease,” I’ve read. Netanyahu accused his opponents of contracting “the American disease” during the recent campaign.

  323. Chicon says:

    Word of the day – predicate. Barr used it when he talked spying in front of Congress recently. In order to surveil, there needs to be a predicate – some evidence that a crime may be underway. What was it in this case? Mueller found zero evidence of any collusion. So, what’s the predicate for the investigation? The Steele dossier? Mueller found it is fake.

  324. jason says:

    “Breaking News- Everybody already has their talking points ready to go for when the report is released.”

    “One of the Democrats’ basic problems is that “attempting” to obstruct the investigation doesn’t make a lot of sense. If Trump had really wanted to obstruct the investigation, he could simply have terminated it. And Mueller acknowledges that the administration fully cooperated with the investigation in every way. So the “attempts to obstruct” come down to Trump expressing outrage at the fact that a baseless, partisan investigation was hampering his administration. Arguably Trump should have brought the Mueller farce to an end, but he didn’t.”

    The liberal press will use Flake for a couple of years, then toss him aside like refuse. Believe he has been what amounts to a political functionary for most his life, so does not have private sector experience. He was once a member of the congressional “Liberty Caucus”, and now he is considering supporting Democratic candidates who support socialist policies. That is pathetic; and he wonders why his polling in Arizona was so low? Arizona voters saw through his shallowness.

But once Trump was elected you have to pick sides in the battle, and it was between Trump and the leftist abyss.

    As for AG Barr, Pres. Obama said that his AG, Eric Holder, was his “wingman”. Personally, I think that Barr is a straight shooter and Obama’s AG’s(Holder and Lynch) were sleazy and corrupt.

    IMHO, the #1 unanswered question in the heavy-handed two year Mueller investigation is : “When did Mueller conclude that the whole collusion hysteria was bogus?”
    This investigation had the same pungent stink to it that the Patrick Fitzgerald one did. Fitzgerald knew from day 2 of his investigation that “there was no there. there” regarding the Plame affair, but continued on and on and on trying to find “process” crimes.

    Gates telling Trump that the next Wikileaks document dump was imminent was collusion.

    379. As a President cannot be indicted while in office, a report such as this is to inform Congress whether or not there is grounds for impeachment.

    Even if SCOTUS reversed the 5th and 9th (unlikely), according to the DOJ Justice Manual again, 1512(c) requires the defendant to intend “specific results, for example, preventing a witness from testifying at an official proceeding” – essentially, a form of specific intent.

    The point is that asking about doing something, tweeting about it, yelling about it, etc with no actual action of doing it is not a crime. Seeking counsel and having thoughts is not a crime in AMERICA!

    …and finally, POTUS can fire most administrative personnel at any time for any reason, and does not even have to give a reason because they work for POTUS. Just like POTUS can ask for specific investigations be done even though that may not be good optics, it is a legal right if POTUS.

Unless you think Hillary, Podesta and DNC would not have welcomed a public release by Wikileaks of emails that showed the Trump campaign to be dishonest. Remember why the impact of the emails was considered to be NEGATIVE to the Clinton campaign….nobody disputed their accuracy… they showed the campaign ripped off Sanders AND was colluding with the media.
    4. Trump’s campaign met with the Russians to seek out that help

    5. Trump and his campaign repeatedly lied about those contacts
    Trump and his campaign were 100% vindicated, none of these “contacts” were in any way related to collusion. Oh yeah, Kushner admitted to shaking the hand of the Russian Ambassador at an event..wow

    6. Trump fired the FBI Director to stop an investigation into the matter

    BS. The investigation was not going to be stopped by firing Comey, was it? Mueller made clear in his report that the WH cooperated fully with his investigation. In the end, Trump never needed any motive to fire Comey, he could have fired him if he didn’t like the color of his tie.

    Mueller didn’t think so.

    And let’s not forget he was completely innocent, so wouldn’t it make sense his motive for curtailing the investigation was political, he didn’t want his Presidency mired in the investigation for years.

    If he was “curtailing” it because he was guilty, it could be maybe interpreted a different way.

    Didn’t Obama do all he could to “curtail” investigations into his administration? Didn’t Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch run interference for him countless times?

    Trump knew there was no collusion so it makes perfect sense it would try to limit the SCOPE of the investigation.

    The “I am f–ked” statement says it all. We now know he didn’t say it because he thought he was guilty of collusion, we know he said it because it was politically very damaging to have a SC appointed.

And yet it was more popgun than big-time bomb.”

    “Throughout 2016, the Trump Campaign expressed interest in Hillary Clinton’s private email server and whether approximately 30,000 emails from that server had in fact been permanently destroyed, as reported by the media,” wrote the Office of Special Counsel in its report, released Thursday.

    The report states that “Trump asked individuals affiliated with his Campaign to find the deleted Clinton emails.” While the investigators did not find coordination between Russians and Trump officials in finding the emails, or any evidence of success in uncovering them, the report concludes that some of those efforts “were pursued to some degree.”

    Actually yes, because he did not establish Trump committed any crime and he did not accuse Trump of any crime. If he had a case for obstruction, he would have made it, the burden is on the accuser. And he was clear that intent was an important part of the equation.

    He didn’t accept the premise that the President cannot be charged with obstruction, and he still didn’t charge him with obstruction.

    And as Barr said, with Rosentein’s concurrence, none of the 10 instances investigated amounted to obstruction, and there was no underlying collusion of ANY type anyway.

    And Mueller did not say anything about “requiring a trial”, BS.

    “It is good news that there was insufficient evidence to charge the President of the United States with having conspired with a foreign adversary or with having obstructed justice. The alternative would have taken us through a wrenching process with the potential for constitutional crisis. The business of government can move on.

    Even so, I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President. I am also appalled that, among other things, fellow citizens working in a campaign for president welcomed help from Russia—including information that had been illegally obtained; that none of them acted to inform American law enforcement; and that the campaign chairman was actively promoting Russian interests in Ukraine.

    Reading the report is a sobering revelation of how far we have strayed from the aspirations and principles of the founders.”

    452 Stoopid Messy said the scandals were not real. See summary below of each where folks generally resigned or were fired but no scandal since people resign under pressure, get investigated, or get fired for no reason. I guess because Nixon resigned and was never convicted or impeached, Watergate was not a scandal either.

    Also, I guess the folks that died in some of these scandals were not real either. The fact that the FBI and DOJ turned blind eyes to these does not make the not real you twit.

    I did not even include Benghazi where more folks died and POTUS and his team (think Susan Rice) lied about a tape causing the incident and then leaving Americans to die when they could have intervened and saved them.

    What about the IRS targeting scandal?
    Lois Lerner was placed on leave, resigned during her leave because it appeared she would be fired, was admonished for her dept’s behavior and leadership for which she apologized, and was found in contempt of Congress. DOJ did a review and decided not to prosecute because she was forced to resign.

    VA waiting list scandal?
    Nearly 40 veterans died in VA while awaiting care. Top leadership in VA resigned. Investigation found negligence. The FBI opened a criminal investigation.

    GSA spending spree scandal?
    GSA top leadership resigned and others fired over corruption and inappropriate spending and top leadership admitted to egregious behavior.

    Remember Fast and Furious? (AG found in contempt of Congress?)
    AG Holder 1st to ever be held in contempt of Congress. Tried to stall investigation (speak about obstruction) and an American agent was killed along with approx 100+ Mexicans. At AG Holders request, Obama invoked executive privilege in his election year and refused to turn over documents to Congress and investigators. Is that obstructing an investigation?

    Solyndra Subsidies?
    Obama tried to prop up his green energy program and forced approval of a $500M loan that gov folks did not want to make and subsequently gov auditors found should not have been made. The company shut down and all 1,100 employees lost their jobs with no benefits and taxpayers got stuck with $500M. Subsequent review determined the govt should never had made them a loan due to faulty financials that were brought to Obsmas team attention but they forced the loan so he could do photo ops.

    Buying off Joe Sestak?
    Obama folks tried to buy off Sestak not to run in dem primary by offering a job. That is a bribe under federal law.

  465. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    As a past Romney supporter, let me lay it on the table.

    After the 2012 election, I was at a meeting in Utah where it was discussed why Romney lost the presidential race. The consensus was the Romney came across as too self-righteous and sanctimonious; which seriously contrasted with his “vulture capitalist” business practices. The Democrats in 2012 pounded him with instances where he had bought companies, “looted” them, and made profits while workers ended up losing their jobs. This contrasted with Romney’s attempt to project an imagine of sainthood. Several attendees referred to him as an “easterner”, which means the equivalent of alien from another planet in Utah. Trump readily admits and boosted about his sharp business practices, so people knew, for better or worse, who he was. Romney’s persona confused people and made them uncomfortable.
    The over-the-top self-righteousness coming from Romney now is getting creepy.

  466. mnw says:

    5 seconds after Romney won the GOP nomination in 2012, there was a full court press from the MSM about whether Romney was likely to go to prison for the complex financial transactions his companies had conducted abroad– shifting money to foreign soil to avoid taxes.

    And I mean, a FULL. COURT. PRESS.

    The MSM had Romney branded as a probable felon before he even knew what hit him, & he never got past that. They had him DEFINED.

    Somehow, he doesn’t seem to notice any similarities between his experience & Trump’s.

    And yes, his moral posturing makes me puke, too.

    Elizabeth Vaughn at Redstate has a good “note to Mitt”

    “Note to Mitt:

    There are many reasons to be upset about the Mueller Report, but the actions of President Trump and the members of his campaign are not one of them.

    Can’t you put your personal animosity for Trump aside for once and look at the facts?

    Officials at the top levels of the Obama administration, including the FBI, the DOJ, the CIA, the DNI and the Obama White House, horrified by the prospect of a Trump presidency, conspired to undermine his candidacy. The Obama FBI infiltrated the campaign with spies. Officials from the FBI and the DOJ knowingly used an unverified dossier of false stories about Trump, which was commissioned and paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC, to obtain a FISA court warrant to spy on Carter Page. Although Page was merely a low level advisor, access to his communications provided a window into the rest of the campaign. They also leaked stories to the media when it suited their purposes.

    When the unthinkable happened and Trump won the election, their “insurance policy” went into effect. The FBI counterintelligence investigation which began before the election ultimately turned into a special counsel investigation. There was no evidence of a crime at the inception of either probe. Both were initiated for one political purpose, to delegitimize Trump’s presidency.

    The special counsel investigation has crippled Trump’s presidency and it has damaged our country. It has also ruined the lives of several Trump associates, including General Michael Flynn, who served this country well for over 30 years.

    This criminal conspiracy is unprecedented and it will be remembered as the biggest political scandal in U.S. history.

    And Donald Trump and his campaign staff were its victims.

    Does any of that sicken you Mitt?

    So I got through the detailed summary findings in the obstruction of justice case of the S.C. Report.

    I thought when I saw a clip of Mark Levine ranting and raving it was an op-Ed that was just his right-centered bias and showmanship. But this far, except for one item, it seems Mueller got all these summaries from CNN or MSNBC. He is referring to comments made publicly by Trump and seems to be suggesting he was sending secret signals to folks. He also notes that Trump was essentially asking others who work for him to basically do damage control to offset media leaks. He believes asking Sessions to re-consider un-recusing himself and taking charge of the investigation and do what he believes is right without interference must be a horrible thing. Really? These constitute obstruction? I guess every politician would be in jail based on these types of items. These actions are normal political ways politicians operate. I saw no statement where he made clear POTUS broke the law or intimidated witnesses.

    The one area where I could see someone might construe and whether it was proper is his discussion with McGahn where he asks him to tell others to fire the S.C., of which McGahn immediately refused and that was the end of that. Mueller states that McGahn did not back down from POTUS and told Mueller he felt POTUS was testing his mettle which I read as POTUS seeing if he is strong enough to operate under pressure or someone who is not going to support aggressive defense of POTUS, which clearly I would want my attorney to do, otherwise, hire Sessions.

    Other than that, at least in the summary, I see not one iota of evidence outlined that we have not seen in the MSM that folks cannot attribute to his belligerent style. Now I can see why Mueller did not conclude because he would probably be laughed out of court.

    I will continue to read this and see if there really is any juicy bits to cling too but thus far in the detailed summary, I see nothing that was not already being said in public by or about Trump.

    …oh, and if POTUS lied or misled to media is obstruction, guess what, the prosecutors in DC are going to be busy with 535 prosecutions.

    Be careful of the trump upset with Don Mcgahn, ex why counsel.

  520. Tgca says:

    After reading this, I truly believe Mueller’s intent was to set the stage for impeachment because he could not find a crime. It makes sense why he hired aggressive Dem lawyers, including ones that were on Hillarys payroll which I still can’t believe he did.

    By making suggestive statements, Mueller probably knew it would be red meat but I don’t think the American public will bite. I just hope Barr and Trump’s counsel are equally aggressive and dismissing each of these items so the country can move on. Otherwise, we will have 2 more years of this in Congress. Not that it’s a bad thing for the GOP because I believe that will cause the Dems to lose the House, lose Senate seats, lose states, etc. because the country does not want to see constant bickering and do-nothing but investigate politicians. If the DOJ decides there’s nothing there, how can the Dems move on without attacking Barr, who was well-respected. In addition, the IG reports should help dissuade Congress but for the most liberal ones in safe districts. The Dems will have a lot to fight and they will lose the Indys and elections.

  523. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    537. Shouldn’t the focus of the Mueller report have been a detailed investigation of how the Russians interfered in the 2016 election, and who were the Russians who lead and directed it? Instead, Mueller ended up indicting a bunch of low level Russian flunkies who worked in want amounted to tech call centers. Mueller made getting Trump the focus of his investigation.
    He spent two years, and $30 million dollars, trying to find enough dirt on Trump to drive him out of office. He failed. History will not treat him kindly.

    Who was president in 2015? 2016?
    Didn’t Romney warn Obama in 2012 about Russian influence in 2012 debates and was mocked by media and Obama for it?
    Didn’t Obama team tell folks to play nice with Russia so he could get the Iranian deal, the reason no investigations were done into Russia meddling for the most part until he left office.

    okay, let’s look at this article from the Daily Caller (https://dailycaller.com/2019/04/18/mueller-report-russian-trolls/)

    “Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the now-completed Russian investigation redacted virtually all of the content explaining the structure of the internet troll farm accused of interfering in the 2016 U.S. election.”

    In other words, they Did, but they were redacted to hide sources and methods.

    Not only that, thanks to the Meuller team, the US Cybercommand was able to launch a military cyberattack on the IRA last year!!!!(https://www.engadget.com/2019/02/26/cyber-command-russia-internet-research-agency-military-attack/)

    543. Russian trolling existing long before 2016. The American energy industry was constantly the subject of Russian interference. The issue is a lot broader than just one troll farm in Russia.

    “But there is plenty of evidence in the form of a tangible money trail that links Vladimir Putin’s Russian government with U.S. environmental groups. In fact, the source of this funding has been subject of two congressional committee inquiries. Most recently, Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Texas, who chairs the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, released a report in March that explores Russia’s motives for disrupting America’s energy sector.
    “Russia benefits from stirring up controversy about U.S. energy production,” Smith said in a press release. “U.S. energy exports to European countries are increasing, which means they will have less reason to rely upon Russia for their energy needs. This, in turn, will reduce Russia’s influence on Europe to Russia’s detriment and Europe’s benefit. That’s why Russian agents attempted to manipulate Americans’ opinions about pipelines, fossil fuels, fracking and climate change. The American people deserve to know if what they see on social media is the creation of a foreign power seeking to undermine our domestic energy policy.”
    Smith’s report describes the Russian scheme to use nonprofit entities to influence and sway U.S. public policy and public opinion against fracking. The evidence in the report shows that Russia has been using U.S. environmental groups to spread what Smith aptly describes as “propaganda” to undermine America’s natural gas revolution.

  538. Tgca says:

    Obama made some mistakes? Oh, like Benghazi?

    Agreed, hindsight is 20/20 and all leaders err but to suggest Trump was in the pockets of the Russians while Obama ignored intelligence information and had his team purposely stand down to get the Iran deal when he was fully aware that Russians were interfering in the elections going back to 2014 takes brass balls. It’s like a hooker being virtuous and accusing someone of being a slut or whore.

    That’s what irritates us. Not that Obama made mistakes, but that others turned away from those serious lapses of judgments but try to pin much lesser mistakes on Trump as if t 1st started under Trump when they know that was not the case.

    We can’t wait for the IG report and DOJ investigations that will provide a much more detailed narrative than Mueller’s selective reporting.

    A federal court permitted a lawsuit to proceed against an Illinois school district that allows high school boys to use girls’ locker rooms, restrooms and showers in order to accommodate transgender students.

    But girls who don’t want to be seen naked by boys got bad news: The judge ruled that they have no right to “visual bodily privacy” if the government says so.

    Dozens of families sued the Chicago-area Township High School District 211 three years ago due to its policy letting students as young as 14 choose to use the locker rooms of the opposite sex.

    “All the students must use the restroom with the knowledge that someone of the opposite sex is present or could walk in at any time,” their lawyers at the Alliance Defending Freedom wrote in a background document on the case.

    snowflake: those are not the same choices as in the book.

    (keep in mind this is now approaching a 15 minute operation)

    lisab: i am not choosing from the book, i’m reading there, where it says, “choose your own bread, cheese, and toppings” on the menu behind you.

    ‘Whiteness Studies’ Professor Says White People Who Treat All Races Equally Are ‘Dangerous’

    By Michael Lee | Apr 19, 2019

    “I’d like to be a little less white, which means a little less oppressive.”

    A guest lecturer at Boston University said last month that white people who judge others as individuals instead of by their skin color are “dangerous,” according to a report in the College Fix.

    The lecture, entitled “What Does It Mean To Be White,” was given by University of Washington Professor Robin DiAngelo, a white woman.

    DiAngelo, who according to her website specializes in “whiteness studies,” added that people who say they’ve been taught to treat everyone the same deny black people their reality.

    Government school officials in California think it is “really important” to teach children about pedophilia and pederasty in the classroom because it is a “sexual orientation.” That is according to a top official for California’s Brea Olinda School District, who admitted to parents that it was being done — and that it would continue, despite the outrage. The implications are mind-blowing.

    The stunning admission came after a parent-information meeting last month for the Brea Olinda Unified School District (BOUSD). Stephanie Yates, founder of Informed Parents of California, asked school officials why they were “teaching pedophilia in school to 9th graders.” But instead of a denial that such an atrocity was taking place, a top school official confirmed it was happening and acted like there was nothing wrong with it.

    “This is done because we are talking about historical perspectives of how gender relations and different types of sexual orientations have existed in history,” said BOUSD Assistant Superintendent of Curricula Kerrie Torres in a matter-of-fact way, sounding almost oblivious to how the bombshell might sound to normal people.

    Man who killed Ottawa cyclist obstructed justice because he feared racist police, avoids jail time

    An Ottawa landscaper who covered his tracks and hid from police after a deadly hit-and-run has been spared jail time by a judge who accepted his explanation that a fear of turning himself in was heightened because he’s a “man of colour” afraid of racist police.

    In 2015, Andy Nevin, 39, was cycling along Leitrim Road when Deinsberg St-Hilaire’s pickup truck smashed into him. St-Hilaire was found not guilty of dangerous driving causing death in 2018, but pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice.

    During his trial, court heard that St-Hilaire went to substantive lengths to hide his involvement in Nevin’s death.

    The maximum penalty for obstruction of justice is two years in prison, but Ontario Superior Court Justice Catherine Aitken instead sentenced St-Hilaire to 100 hours of community service. In the conditional sentence, delivered Wednesday, the judge also gave St-Hilaire a curfew of 10 p.m. for one year, unless it’s snowing. (She wanted to accommodate his winter snow plow job.)

    The judge noted that St-Hilaire’s fear of racist police was connected to past traffic stops where he said he’d been treated unfairly.

Fusion GPS then hired Christopher Steele, a former British spy, to compile a dossier of allegations that Trump and his campaign actively colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 election. Though many of the claims in the dossier have been directly refuted, none of the dossier’s allegations of collusion have been independently verified.

I accompanied this with fresh artichokes smothered in an Alfredo sauce mixed with fresh ricotta and Parmesan cheeses and delicately seasoned with fresh black pepper and oregano. Of course everything was organic and fresh.

    Yummmmeeee!

For dessert they will have a carob covered peanut butter pup cup made especially for canines….and of course everything is naturally homemade with organic ingredients.

    Yummmmeeee!

  597. jason says:

    Notwithstanding Dershowitz’s theory that a President could not commit obstruction in this case, I read the 10 instances where Mueller investigated for possible obstruction of justice (not, as the MSM reports, 10 cases of obstruction of justice).

    I tried to keep an open mind on each of them. Some are patently ridiculous, such as where he wanted to “limit the scope of the investigation” (duhhh) or where he was trying to put a political spin on the Trump Tower meeting (duhhh, nothing happened at the meeting so whether he characterized it correctly or no doesn’t matter, and Mueller said as much). In the firing of Comey, Mueller said he didn’t think Trump was trying to impede the investigation, but he “might” be trying to keep “something” else (he doesn’t say what) embarrassing from coming out (zzzzzz).

    The only instance that IMO could be interpreted as obstruction was telling McGhan to fire Mueller, but even that is very murky. In the first place, Mueller wasn’t fired, and McGhan says Trump never followed up and asked him why. Second, Trump didn’t really need McGhan to fire Mueller, he could have fired him any way he wanted to. Third, Conway has a different recollection of the event.

    At the end of the day, even Mueller is clear that the investigation was really not impeded in any way, the WH cooperated with all the documents, and executive privilege was never exerted. The theory that “maybe” Trump “intended” the investigation to be impeded even though it never was is very iffy, and certainly the Senate would never convict him of obstruction if that all the Dems have.

  598. Wes says:

    Since Walker passed his sell-by date Johnson is considering running again.

  599. jason says:

    Btw, remember all the hoopla on how Flynn, Papadopoulos, Cohen, etc. were “cooperating” and in each case the MSM declared it was the end of the Trump presidency.

    It doesn’t look like any of the them provided anything of value to Mueller because not only did Mueller clear Trump of collusion, and the possible obstruction cases don’t seem to have much to do with their “cooperation” except the “well, he tried the carrot and stick approach with Cohen”.

  600. jason says:

    Wes is talking about sin this early in the morning?

  601. jason says:

    The only sin I have committed so far today is gluttony. If I had shared my breakfast with the homeless in York at least five of them would have eaten well.

    “Gluttony means over-indulgence and over-consumption of food, drink, or wealth items, particularly as status symbols. In Christianity, it is considered a sin if the excessive desire for food causes it to be withheld from the needy.”

    My only out here is that I don’t consider myself a Christian. Also in my defense, I don’t consider bacon a status symbol.

    And of course, if Tgca shared his breakfast, at least 5 of homeless would have gone into a diabetic coma and another five would have been arrested for public disturbance resulting from the sugar high.

  603. Tina says:

    Mcgahn apparently made three (varying) statements on the issue and nobody confirms this. We do not criminalize thought, Trump could have fired Mulehead, and Mcghans role in it is a non factor. But he never did.

    Remember, this is the same Mulehead trump met with 4 hours the day before Redactstein appointed him as Sc. The same Mulehead who trump has a business dispute with. The meeting was supposedly over the fib chief position, the replacement for Mulehead,

  604. Tgca says:

    Ah! Starting the day with two eggs (perfectly rounded egg whites) drizzled with fresh black pepper and layered with Jarlsberg cheese sprinkled Chipotle Jalapeño seasoning and melted to perfection and topped with a delicately tasty cream sauce garnished with fresh basil and oregano.

    …this is how we do it in South Jersey.

    Jadon hit hardest!

  605. jason says:

    This guy really a moron.

    ‘Not ruling out impeachment, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who chairs the House committee that would hold impeachment hearings, said he remained puzzled why Mueller did not bring charges of criminal conspiracy against those in the Trump Tower meeting.

    “All you have to prove for conspiracy is that they entered into a meeting of the minds to do something wrong and had one overt act. They entered into a meeting of the minds to attend a meeting to get stolen material on Hillary (Clinton). They went to the meeting. That’s conspiracy right there,” said Nadler, D-N.Y.”

    Tina is wrong. We do criminalize thoughts.

    Entered into a meeting “of the minds to…”

  606. jason says:

    Of course, there was no evidence the Russian woman had any “stolen Russian material” or even “promised any stolen Russian material”. Even if she offered dirt on Hillary, dirt is not necessarily “stolen”.

  607. jason says:

    And if I remember correctly, what was supposedly offered was info on campaign violations, nothing to do with Wikileaks.

  608. Tgca says:

    Clearly Jadon is guilty of perjury after I summarized the 10 instances in 533. That, or either small minds think alike.

  609. jason says:

    “… delicately tasty cream sauce garnished with fresh basil and oregano.”

    Gayest post of the day, but it’s early.

  610. jason says:

    Clearly Jadon is guilty of perjury after I summarized the 10 instances in 533.”

    Sugar destroys the mind.

    I think you mean plagiarism.

  611. Tina says:

    This must be the meeting that discussed Russian adoptions?

    Is that what Nadler is referring to?

    Yes, the same meeting attended by Russian, Vida something.

    Vida so happened to get a special visa to be in country, by an Obama politico.

    The same Vida who met with Fusion before and after the meeting.

  612. Tina says:

    Remember how one sided the witch hunt was:

    Simpson says he never met her. Yet he did. Is he charged with perjury or obstruction?

    The Benito Weissman report (Mulehead report) also notes that “Russian” Mifsud lies several times.

    Is he charged? Oh wait, I forgot papadope prevented him somehow from being charged.

    The same papadope who was basically charged with lying about the date he joined the trump campaign and met with Mifsud.

  613. Tina says:

    Funny how woodworm now admits the dossier was fake and Mulehead knew it.

    Woodworm alsomadmits thst the dossier was put in an intelligence briefing by the cia. What he means, is the commie, Brennan, put it in an Intelligence briefing for the obumbler.

  617. jason says:

    Right, besides Nadler, I haven’t read anywhere that this Vida woman had any “stolen Hillary information”.

    Of course, as Giuliani made clear yesterday, information is not exactly like jewelry, it’s not a crime to use information even if it is “stolen”. The Wikileaks info was hacked and used in Trump’s campaign, that wasn’t a crime.

    Even though it didn’t happen, if the Russian woman had divulged anything about Hillary’s campaign violations in the meeting, there would not be a crime in using it unless something was promised or paid in return for it. And even then, it was never completely shown this woman was a Russian agent acting in an official capacity, and certainly that was not how she sold herself to get the meeting.

    The DNC was paying a foreign party like Steele for dirt on Trump, right? Was that a problem?

    Nadler is an idiot.

  618. jason says:

    Digging up dirt on Trump: opposition research.

    Digging up dirt on Hillary: conspiracy and treason.

    …and to be honest, Jadon is guilty of perjury too. I just chose to focus on the more proveable point to his plagiarism.

    Ask Robbie, he has all the details of Jadon’s perjury since I don’t recall the specifics but Jadon trashed Trump during 2016 but is now a Trump sycophant. We must consider Jadon’s intent over his actions when considering perjury.

  621. Tgca says:

    You guys are just too blind to see the evidence. You have to understand how the Dems see it. They do have a point. Some people did some things. What they did or whom did it does not matter. It’s all impeachable.

    RAS 47/51 & -8 today. That is consistent with an Ipsos poll over the weekend showing some deterioration since the redacted report was released.

    A federal criminal conspiracy is a combination of two or more persons working together to accomplish an unlawful purpose.

    I prosecuted conspirators for 27 years, but I feel as if I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole into Wonderland now. What the hell?

  626. Tina says:

    Donna Brazil’s continues to like on cn and n lite aka faux news:

    “I think they did everything they could without sounding all of the alarm bells,” Brazile said during an appearance on “The Daily Briefing” with Dana Perino.

    Brazile claims that the Obama administration did everything in their power but were ultimately hamstrung about public perception. She maintains that he didn’t have a handle on his Justice Department because he was afraid it would look like he was helping Crooked Hillary’s presidential ambitions.

    “He was in a box,” Brazile said about Obama. “Perhaps President Trump is in a box.”

    Yes’m now the obumbler did not have control over his justice dept.

  627. Tgca says:

    Transactionalism?

    Is that like existentialism?

  628. Tina says:

    Mcgahn made three different statements on the matter.

    Yes, three different ones. I bet Benito Weissarse took the statement that is most damaging.

    Also, continue to note that Trump 2020:continues to employ Mcghanns law firm.

  629. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Bitter, jason and Other NHL fans:
    Comcast owns the Philadelphia Flyers. Here is their disgraceful, mealy-mouthed and cowardly statement on the Kate Smith situation:
    The Flyers released the following statement on Sunday:

    “The Flyers have enjoyed a long and popular relationship with ‘God Bless America,’ as performed by the late Kate Smith, a woman who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Honor for her patriotic contributions to our nation.

    “But in recent days, we learned that several of the songs Kate Smith performed in the 1930s include lyrics and sentiments that are incompatible with the values of our organization, and evoke painful and unacceptable themes.”

    The Flyers quoted team president Paul Holmgren as saying: “The NHL principle ‘Hockey is for Everyone’ is at the heart of everything the Flyers stand for. As a result, we cannot stand idle while material from another era gets in the way of who we are today.”

    I hope they never win another game!

  630. Tina says:

    Yes, trump wanted to get rid of F Mulehead. So much som that he sent Mulehead words of encouragement to Mulehead.

  631. Tina says:

    Sheeple very short interview and he contradicts Mcgahn, at least the statement attributed to him in the Weissman report.

    Faux should have had him on longer.

    Brilliant lawyer.

  632. jason says:

    644. Hey, Sheep, good link, thanks.

    Several takes:

    1) Dowd is giving McGhan an out here, “misunderstanding”. But in any case, Dowd would be a powerful witness for the President if it comes to that. And I like the part where Mueller supposedly understands that Trump’s tweets are “political”, which is the truth.

    2) Dowd is also giving Mueller an out when he testifies. When I read the report, I got the feeling a lot of it was written either by underlings or by the some of the more partisan players on Mueller’s team. It’s possible that Mueller will give Dems less rather than more, than what is on the report. I don’t think Mueller wrote this report himself, or most of it. I think he signed off on it as a consensus document. I could be wrong but I think he is not going to go to Congress and go beyond his report, he is going to say this is it, and I don’t think he is going to dispute Barr’s interpretation.

    3) It would be dangerous to throw McGhan under the bus and call him a liar. But it’s very strange that if Trump REALLLY wanted Mueller fired, it wouldn’t have happened. We already know him better than that.

  633. jason says:

    “But in recent days, we learned that several of the songs Kate Smith performed in the 1930s include lyrics and sentiments that are incompatible with the values of our organization, and evoke painful and unacceptable themes.”

    I see.

    Well, let’s see what the Dems do about Exalted Cyclops Robert Byrd.

    In 1944 he wrote:

    “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”

    In 1946 he wrote:

    “The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation.”

    Was that “material from another era”?

  634. jason says:

    Yes’m now the obumbler did not have control over his justice dept.”

    Not to worry.

    According to Messy, Obama will be admitting this right away, because he never denies a mistake “once it is discovered”.

  635. Phil says:

    Russia, Russia, Russia……

  636. Tgca says:

    Why don’t we remove every monument of the Founding Fathers as well because many were racist and owned slaves. Better yet, the Declaration of Independence should be invalidated because so many white racist men signed it…and what about #MeToo. How come we don’t have Founding Mothers or women signing the Declaration?

    FDR supposedly made known racist remarks including Elenor’s and her n*ggers. LBJ repeatedly used inappropriate language against AA. We won’t even get into the KKK loving Senator Byrd. Justice Thurgood Marshall in his biography quoted Robert Kennedy making derogatory remarks about AA…and we also have the Camelot 1st Lady Jackie Kennedy on tape making despicable racist comments aimed at MLK.

    What hypocrisy! All these folks came after Kate Smith’s 1932 song so why aren’t they being criticized and shunned. Simple! Racist commentary does not apply to Dems or their heroes and the times in which they occurred seem to apply.

  637. Wes says:

    Let’s not forget Woodrow Wilson (D-NJ) was a virulently racist President who pushed blacks out of civil service during his time with in the White House.

  638. mnw says:

    Tg

    The Yankees & the Flyers banished Kate Smith. With lots of AA players in MLB, & surprisingly many AC (Afro-Canadians) in the NHL, sports teams are easy targets for pressure groups. Just banning the song was the path of least resitance.

    “Ask Robbie, he has all the details of Jadon’s perjury since I don’t recall the specifics but Jadon trashed Trump during 2016 but is now a Trump sycophant. We must consider Jadon’s intent over his actions when considering perjury.”

    Yes, in 2016 I said I thought Trump would be much better than Hillary regarding judicial appointments, energy policy, deregulation, strengthening the military, climate change policy, taxes, and helping small businesses. I had reservations about his trade policy, foreign policy, building a wall and attacks on fellow Rs. I was on record as saying I thought the “sexual predator” charges were a bunch of garbage, especially when compared to Bill Clinton.

    In 2019, I support Trump on judicial appointments, energy policy, deregulation, strengthening the military, climate change policy, taxes, and pro-business agenda. I have reservations about his trade policy, foreign policy, building a wall and attacks on fellow Rs.
    I still think the “sexual predator” charges are a bunch of garbage especially when compared to Bill Clinton.

    See the perjury? No?

    How about the transactionalism? Surely that is there.
