    Biden is beginning to lose the “electability” argument.

  2. jason says:

    Harris’ 15 minutes in the sun is beginning to wane too.

  3. jason says:

    The MSM must look at that poll and be saying “what do we have to make up to defeat this guy… geezuz”

    Almost identical to the Morning Consult poll the day before
    Biden…….31
    Sanders…..19
    Harris……14
    Warren……13

    Judge rebukes F. Mulehead about the Russian bots matter, social media,

    This is MAJOR. Judge rebukes Mueller- says that there is literally no proof to link the IRA and the Russian government. We all knew that but now it’s in court docs from a judge. That hearing can’t come fast enough. https://twitter.com/aaronjmate/status/1148581532598198273

    Actually the guy who got Clinton elected died in December.

    I should clarify re: validity, above: given how disingenuous Mueller is overall — ignoring Steele dossier; obscuring how weak the official Papadopoulos predicate; omitting Kilimnik’s extensive State Dept ties & falsely hyping him as GRU indictment — this is only latest example.

  13. Tina says:

    The Russian bots and Roger Stone charges appear very weak.

    “Food Stamp participation hits 10 year low. Wow!”

    -I just went to a local deli where I bought a bagel with butter.

    A woman in front of me also bought some coffees, and a bagel, and a croissant, and some other candy. She used an EBT card. One of the coffees was for her daughter, who couldn’t have been older than a high school senior. Not sure why the kid would need coffee at that age, especially when it is being paid for with money that you supposedly “NEED” to feed your family.

    Ok, YES, I did ask the woman, “You use your aid money to pay $1.75 for coffee instead of making it at home for about $.20, or less, a cup? Doesn’t seem like a prudent use of your monthly stipend.”

    YES, she did tell me “Go f*ck yourself, I’ll do what I want with my money!”.

    I smiled and told her, “Have a nice day! Good luck to your daughter!”.

  15. Bitterlaw says:

    NYC – Many High School students drink coffee.

  16. NYCmike says:

    I am sure they do – mainly because the parents allow them.

    “At the other end of the scale, 92% of Trump voters and 90% of conservatives back the question.”

    -“CG” and Robbie must have been called….

  20. jason says:

    If the liberals defeat the citizenship question you know what is next…

    No gender question. Age? Heavens no. How big is the house? No, people with small houses will feel bad. Income? Nah, reveals inequalities.

    In the end, only one question will be allowed, how many global citizens live here, and even that might be seen as discriminatory towards animals.

  21. jason says:

    Huh, NYC I was given coffee mixed with milk from like age 5.

    Don’t tell me caffeine is bad for kids, soda is loaded with it. So is chocolate.

  22. mnw says:

    RV’s, huh, Emerson? I’m SOOOO curious to find out who people WHO WON’T BE VOTING* favor for president! /s

    Those LV screens too expensive, are they?

    *(about 20%-25% of RVs usually don’t vote in Presidential elections, on average– going by memory only)

  23. jason says:

    So the collusion BS is now discredited on BOTH ends?

    Not only did Trump’s campaign not collude, there was really nobody to collude with?

  24. mnw says:

    Plus, this is a national poll, but there is no national primary election.

  25. jason says:

    V’s, huh, Emerson? I’m SOOOO curious to find out who people WHO WON’T BE VOTING* favor for president! /s”

    This is actually good information, since if the Dems win they WILL be voting.

    Voting will be mandatory for all RESIDENTS and perhaps potential future residents too, and those that refuse will have their ballot cast for them by a non-partisan committee that knows that voting for Democrats is best for you.

  26. jason says:

    There will be polling stations in Central America so those who think they might want to someday live in America can have their voices heard too.

  27. NYCmike says:

    “Huh, NYC I was given coffee mixed with milk from like age 5.

    Don’t tell me caffeine is bad for kids, soda is loaded with it. So is chocolate.”

    -I did not say it was bad. I did not say high school kids can’t drink it. Parents allowing their children to experience certain pleasures (coffee, sip of wine, beer, mixed drink) at home is fantastic, in my opinion.

    I did say a woman buying her child a coffee for $1.75, in the middle of the day, with an EBT card, is clearly NOT a necessity.

    Am I wrong to express an opinion? Maybe.

  28. NYCmike says:

    The woman’s use of that card to buy what she bought was probably one of the main reasons she had that card in the first place.

  29. Tina says:

    Well no collusion and no obstruction.

    Dossier is a hoax.

    No evidence that the Russian bots or farms are linked to pooty poot.

    And no evidence that the Russians “hacked” the DNC.

  30. jason says:

    Wow, NYC doth complaineth too much?

    Must be having a bad day, Trump didn’t start any new trade wars today, and no deadenders announced they will try to deliver another safe seat to a liberal Dem.

    I didn’t say anything about the woman, and I am fine with you expressing an opinion.

    My kids were allowed small portions of beer and wine. Mixed drinks? No. My wife doesn’t believe in coffee for kids so they didn’t get any.

  31. jason says:

    And no evidence that the Russians “hacked” the DNC.”

    Not official Russians anyway.

    And although it is assumed Russian hackers gave the emails to Wikileaks, I have not seen any proof of that either.

    And I am still skeptical the Podesta emails had ANY effect on the election. I find it hard to believe anyone said “I am now going to vote for Trump because it is clear that Podesta shafted Bernie Sanders”.

    Hillary’s negatives were high long before Comey or Wikileaks. The perceptions about her as untrustworthy and corrupt were baked in long before.

    Anyone who woke up on election day and said hey wait, I just found out Hillary is corrupt, I am going to vote for Trump must have come out of a deep sleep lasting 30 years.

  32. jason says:

    I like this article.

  35. Tgca says:

    When I was a kid my mom would send me to the corner store in the lovely city of Newark, NJ to get bread and milk with food stamps. That did not embarrass me!

    What did embarrass me was having to go to the corner store and buy her Kotex with cash. That just ain’t right to do that to an 11 year-old in Newark, NJ…and then they wonder why I got chased down Broadway by a gang of kids.

  36. Tina says:

    Jason, Redactstein said that the russiann bots did not change any election results,

    This is a series of cia and fib abuses, lies, and errors for political purposes,

  37. Bitterlaw says:

    Freshmen at my daughter’s high school stop at Starbucks on the way to class. I am not a coffee drinker. They are not using EBT cards to buy it.

    Personally, I think they should drink soda instead. Breakfast of champions.

  38. Bitterlaw says:

    Tgca – That is harsh. The real question is where did your mom get cash?

  39. Big Joe says:

    The Avuncular Joe Biden’s differentiating feature is that he’s far more electable that other Democrats (according to polls). As long as he’s alone in this lane, I would expect him to maintain his lead in the nomination contest.

    If another Democrat or two rise and become just as electable as Uncle Joe, then Uncle Joe should worry. Until then, The Avuncular One continues to hang tough.

    Big Joe

  40. Big Joe says:

    One point I will concede that is not really clear to me at this time and I’ve been trying to figure out for months.

    Does Joe Biden stand alone as “most electable” in GE polls because he truly is the Dem that most primary voters prefer? Or is he leading the Dem pack because he is viewed as “most electable”?

    Chicken or egg?

    Big Joe

  41. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Coffee has amazing health benefits. Soda contributes to disease. Adolescents should be encouraged to drink coffee instead of soda. Finland has the highest coffee consumption rates in the world Before Finland became prosperous, coffee was considered a luxury item. Whenever a member of my family went back for a visit, they always had a full suitcase full of just coffee.
    About 15% of Finnish males drink on average 10 cups a day.

  42. Tgca says:

    Well Bitter. There was an upside to it. I learned to run really fast which led to me winning the 100 meter dash in high school.

    Also, I have wondered over the years if that was the defining moment that made me bat for the other team. KOTEX made me gay!

    I could’ve been married with children, divorced, and paying alimony for cheating on my wife with a tight sweater wearing younger gal but KOTEX may have ruined all that. *sigh*

  43. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    41. Biden is the one Democratic candidate that could beat Trump. The problem is Biden is showing signs of mental decline due to age. It was pretty obvious in the debate, and when he is making speeches. Its going to be become more apparent over time, particularly if he gets the nomination.

    46. “Mitchie not pulling any punches:”

    Actually, I think that was a knock-out blow.

  46. jason says:

    The Avuncular Joe Biden’s differentiating feature is that he’s far more electable that other Democrats (according to polls).”

    Not so sure anymore. He leads Trump by 6 in this poll 53-47, pretty iffy if his argument is electability.

  47. jason says:

    Does Joe Biden stand alone as “most electable” in GE polls because he truly is the Dem that most primary voters prefer? Or is he leading the Dem pack because he is viewed as “most electable”?

    This is an easy one.

    He is leading because he is viewed as most electable.

    That is why I say if he loses that aura he will be toast fairly quickly.

    He is a gaffe prone baggage ridden 78 year old (by 2020) whose expiration date has long passed.

    His only trump card is that maybe he can beat Trump. Nobody can think of any actual policy that would make him stand out from the other Dems.

  48. jason says:

    Tgca – That is harsh. The real question is where did your mom get cash?”

    Come on, Bitter, you know that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas….

    #48 Jason-
    “Not so sure anymore. He leads Trump by 6 in this poll 53-47, pretty iffy if his argument is electability.”

    To clarify, I said Joe Biden was “far more electable than other Democrats (according to polls).”

    That statement is certainly supported by this poll. He leads by 6. Everyone else is in toss-up territory.

  52. NYCmike says:

    That response by McConnell was inspiring!

  53. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    52. That is one of the best early adds I have ever seen. It is like a preemptive strike, before the candidate can define herself as a fake moderate.

    It reminds me of this video:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGD-4UF2KCQ

  54. Phil says:

    I didn’t have any idea McGrath had made those statements in front of the cameras. Can you say toast?

    She wasn’t going to win anyway with Trump at the top of the ballot pulling 62% of the vote. With her saying all that on camera she’s fried. Her Hope was to play the BS “i’m A moderate” card that Democrats always pull out in red state federal elections. It was doubtful she could pull it off anyway. Now? Good luck, sweetheart.

  55. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Here is a McGrath campaign add. Its all about her as a person; policy is not discussed. She comes across as the girl nextdoor, who joined the military.

    LOL Comes across as pure BS to me. Love the tearful piano playing in the background.

  57. mnw says:

    Any comments from HHR’s Philly posters on the South Philadelphia Walgreens store riot/ looting on Thursday?

  58. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Here an example of how dangerous and pathetic Seattle is. A homeless man just stabled three people. He apparently had been in a mental facility, and had stabbed a woman. Despite this, they let him out a month later.

    “Three people have been hospitalized in Seattle after what police are calling an “unprovoked and random attack” Tuesday morning, KIRO 7 reports. Police say a male suspect stabbed three men, including a Nordstrom employee, outside the Nordstrom flagship store downtown; a 79-year-old stabbed in the neck and a 77-year-old stabbed in the back were taken to the hospital, while a 55-year-old stabbed in the forearm was treated at the scene. The 79-year-old is in critical condition, while the 77-year-old is in satisfactory condition,

    “The stabbing suspect was identified as Christopher R. Morisette, 29, who has an extensive criminal history and spent time at Western State, the state’s largest phyciatric hospital. In Morisette’s most recent case — a December 2018 attack on a woman at a mental health facility — Morisette was given credit for time served, and he was released from jail less than a month after the attack.”

    A leader of the business community pointed out crimes against people jumped 43% from 2016-108 in Seattle.

    Then the idiot liberal mayor says more money is the solution:

    In a statement Tuesday afternoon, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan called the stabbings “a terrible, random incident” and said that while Seattle is generally a safe city, incidents of street crime shake the community.
    “This incident shows that we have severely unfunded resources for people with significant behavioral health and mental health needs. We have to do better as a state, County, and City. We have to make sure that people who need our help are getting treatment and interventions, not walking around with weapons.”

  59. NYCmike says:

    -SDC,

    More Seattle lunacy! Even Amazon is the good guy when Seattle is involved!

  60. Bitterlaw says:

    My comment on the rioting teens? They should go to prison. This was a very rare incident. Both can be true.

    The DA (elected with Soros’ money) is probably hoping to not find them so he won’t have to prosecute. He would rather just prosecute cops.

  62. Wes says:

    Can someone explain to me why RRH has a circlejerk about saying Thom Tillis is basically a few steps away from losing reelection?

    The Dems have no A-list candidates in the race, and Janet Cowell—the most prominent candidate—retired from her previous office ahead of a scandal investigation while Cal Cunningham—the second most prominent candidate—lost his most prominent bid for office by 22 points in a runoff nearly a decade ago.

    I never cease to wonder how the RRH “Republicans “ come by their analysis.

  63. DW says:

    RRH has always been a bunch Eeyores running a depression clinic.

  64. jason says:

    I really liked that “what are nevertrumpers willing to give up” I posted yesterday. I particularly identified with the opening statement, not that I was R leaning libertarian.

    And I am willing, like the author is, to promote Trump from FDR Dem, which he was, to JFK Democrat, which is probably the closest to his ideology.

    “Honestly, the last election seemed to me to be a crooked Arkansas Democrat against an FDR Democrat, and as a Republican-leaning libertarian, I didn’t see that as much of a choice. I also thought that Trump’s wildly-public persona and history of being a Lothario, a cad, a boor, and probably a bounder (whatever that is) would make him easy pickings for the Democrat operatives in the media.

    Shows what I know. I didn’t factor in the fact that Hillary managed to be even more incompetent than she was unlikeable, and Trump turned out to be a pro-defense, tax-cutting JFK Democrat — the next best thing to a Republican anyway, compared to the rest of the Democrat party — and better yet, one willing to dance with the ones who brung him on judges.

    Of course, for the last three years, we’ve seen that the clerisy — the credentialed, Ivy-Leagued, well-connected, self-important, Acela-corridor power-brokers of either party — weren’t willing to accede to the wishes of the voters without a fight.”

  65. DW says:

    The second Democrat has dropped out, leaving only 24 communists fighting for the chance to take away your remaining freedoms:

  66. jason says:

    Speaking of nevertrumpers…

    “The Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson chose to dish out a little liberal condescension:

    “Never-Trump Republicans and independents may be shocked to hear this, but the Democratic Party is likely to nominate a Democrat for president. That means they’re not going to nominate someone who thinks exactly like a Never-Trump Republican.

    Break out the smelling salts. I think several refugees from the GOP, pontificating on Twitter and the nation’s leading op-ed pages, just fainted dead away.”

  67. jason says:

    and…

    “The odd-fellow coalition between Never-Trumpers and Democrats appears to be history. It has apparently dawned on both sides that, policy-wise, they have virtually nothing in common. And as the Democratic race for president heats up, the illusions of both sides have been shattered.

    Earth to Never-Trumpers: There is no Democratic presidential candidate that any self-respecting conservative — or moderate for that matter — can support.

    There was a misunderstanding between the two sides: Democrats actually believed that most Never-Trumpers would rally around the nominee, whoever he/she was. Meanwhile, Never-Trumpers believed that Democrats wouldn’t be bat-guano crazy enough to nominate a radical. As it turns out, both sides were wrong.”

  68. jason says:

    and…

    “Never-Trumpers have been chasing their tails for two years. They have skirted the real issue of “If not Trump, who?” for far too long. If you are going to vote for president in 2020 (and some of us have chosen not to), there really is only one rational choice. I think many Never-Trumpers will eventually come to that conclusion. They may have to wear hazmat suits to enter the polling booth, but there will be many who may conclude that the danger to the republic is grave enough that voting for four more years of this circus would be better than the alternative.”

  69. DW says:

    I don’t really understand Never-Trump 2020. I totally understood Never-Trump 2016. That was back when he appeared to be certain to lose anyway, so if you were in a state like Virginia, certain to go to Clinton, what was the point in voting for Trump.

    But now Trump is the sitting president, having spent his first three years packing the courts with FAR better judges than Clinton would have given us, and the reality in 2020 is, unless something unexpected happens, one of the following will be the Dem nominee:

    1 – Biden: 27.3
    2 – Harris: 15
    3 – Sanders: 14.9
    4 – Warren: 13.9
    5 – Buttigieg: 5.3
    6 – O’Rourke : 2.7
    7 – Booker: 2.1

    Which of these is going to give you more conservative judges than Trump has?

  70. Bitterlaw says:

    Don’t forget that if you move to Radnor Township, PA, you don’t have to vote FOR Trump. You can just hit the Vote AGAINST Democrat Nominee.

    DW

    The DEM candidates beneath the top 4? Pollsters should be asking their supporters who their second choice is. BIG time.

    For real. That would be like, you know… useful information, for once. The candidates below the top 4 are getting appx 17% of the total vote.

    Instict suggests to me that those bottom feeders aren’t for Biden, but who knows?

  73. jason says:

    “President Donald Trump won the dismissal of a lawsuit against him by Maryland and the District of Columbia that challenged payments made to his businesses by foreigners while he has been in the White House.
    A three-judge panel in the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in a decision said that Maryland and D.C. “do not have Article III standing to pursue their claims against the president” that he violated the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution.
    The appeals panel ordered a federal district court to dismiss the suit against Trump with prejudice, which would bar them from relaunching the action.”

  74. jason says:

    Don’t forget that if you move to Radnor Township, PA, you don’t have to vote FOR Trump. You can just hit the Vote AGAINST Democrat Nominee.”

    I know. We can’t afford these machines here in York Co.

    But I will vote FOR Trump this time around.

  75. jason says:

    HHR is a wonderful place.

    The AFL-CIO “conservatives” embracing the agenda of the labor unions that have contributed billions over the last 60 years to elect liberals and defeat the conservative agenda are the “conservatives”.

    If you advocate for free trade, free markets and free enterprise, you are a “Code Pink conservative”.

    I love it here.

    I love it here.

  76. jason says:

    Hmmm…. I guess I REALLY love it here.

  77. dblaikie says:

    I have argued since the midterms that in 2020 a bunch of folks who don’t like Trump will in Jason’ s terms, “put on their hazmat suits and vote for Trump.” With the way the Democratic Party is racing towards Socialism they have no where else to go. I suppose many will stay home, But many will vote. This is the deep dark secret that render many polls unreliable. They will never admit that they in any way favor Trump. They will never admit that if they vote, they will vote for Trump. How much this skews these polls is a good question.

    Like DW says 2016 for these folks was far different If the dems could nominate a true moderate in 2020 this all would be a different story — but they won’t. As Gene Robinson wrote in the WP, “the never Trumpers have to understand that the Democrats are going to nominate a Democrat.”

    I am obviously doing better than those that already dropped out. I am tied with Moulton, Sestak, Gravel and Messam, and so far only my wife, dog and HHR readers know I am running (don’t be offended, I don’t mean anything by putting it in that order).

    For those who say I am not a Democrat, I say I am as much a Democrat as Bernie Sanders. GFYs.

    The Fifth Circuit is gonna take down Obamacare The End. Oral arguments today were obvious tells about which way the Court is leaning.

  80. jason says:

    In 2016 I said I would vote for Jeb in the general and then take 30 showers.

    This time I will have 2 martinis (my limit if I am driving) vote for Trump, and then have 4 martinis.

  81. jason says:

    Mona Charen wants the Dems to change so she can vote them, but calls herself a lifelong conservative.

  82. DW says:

    sorry jason I didn’t know you were running. Good job at being TIED with four of the 24 remaining candidates. Maybe if you can improve your standing just a bit, it will be enough to get a cabinet position in the new administration, should Trump lose.

  83. jason says:

    This article makes it look like Clinton has a lot more to worry about than Trump…..

  84. jason says:

    Thanks DW.

    Cabinet seems a little far fetched.

    I am thinking more of special envoy for Amish-Inca relations or something like that.

    “This country was founded on white supremacy”

  86. jason says:

    To clarify, I said Joe Biden was “far more electable than other Democrats (according to polls).”

    That statement is certainly supported by this poll. He leads by 6. Everyone else is in toss-up territory.”

    Sorry, Big Joe, but actually your statement was NOT supported by the poll, unless you want to define a 4 point difference (within the MOE) as “far”.

    Biden leads by 6, Warren by 2. I don’t see how that makes him “far” more electable.

  87. NYCmike says:

    #90 – wife is a grammar school counselor. A new boss came in this past year, and they have had several workshops where discussions were about “white privilege”. Wife said there were 2 women, both who happened to be black, who were vocal about being privileged to work with the white people at their job! My wife, along with others who worked alongside those 2 women, stood up and said they were privileged to work with them.

    So far, wife does not see any workshops devoted to “white privilege” and/or “systemic racism” for next year. Time will tell.

    However many martoonis jason has to drink to relax & forget that he voted for Trump next year? I think I killed a half gallon of Gallo after pulling the lever next to McCain’s name.

    That’s just The Price You Pay for not being a purist.

  90. Proud Obamacon says:

    Well well well Big Joe returns to worship his idol. News for you Big Joe, the only reason Biden’s GE polls is so good is because he’s getting alleged support from so called moderate RePUGs. Those moderate RePUGS will never actually vote for Biden. They will go back and vote for their Orange Wet Dream just like you will. Biden is toast. He’s the LEAST ELECTABLE Democrat in the race. Yeah, that’s right I said LEAST electable! He is John Kerry part 2. He is Hillary Junior!

    “For example, multiple amendments appear to try to shift the Pentagon’s focus from defense of the nation to defense of the environment. One would ratchet up the renewable energy mandate for defense installations. Another would assign Space Force the task of monitoring climate change. There are more amendments along these lines.”

    -And “CG” will continue to say a Democrat in office won’t be any better than Trump.

    I am pretty sure Trump doesn’t push for those types of amendments, while a Dem President would have no problem with them.

  92. NYCmike says:

    https://pjmedia.com/trending/americas-first-black-billionaire-gives-trump-an-a-says-dems-are-moving-too-far-left/

    -Maybe the Democrats are in cahoots with Trump, to move the nation more to the left, since he is a “liberal Democrat”.

    If Trump is re-elected, and I hope he is, I also hope that a Republican-lead Congress can set its own course.*

    *Of course, according to Wes and others at HHR, a Congress of the same party as the President is UNABLE to do anything without the President being behind it!

  93. mnw says:

    Fool troll alert.

    That post just DEMANDS refutation! Right, jason?

  94. Wes says:

    Mikey is too stupid to understand Presidents and Legislators of the same party coordinate agendas. If both sides aren’t onboard there’s no coherent exchange of ideas or messaging.

    Last time a President and his party in Congress were at odds was 1977-1980 under Jimmy Carter—not exactly someone remembered as a great President. Carter was swept from office in 1980 as well as many Dem Congressmen and Senators in the Reagan Revolution.

    Somehow Mikey thinks the congressional GOP is now supposed to advance its own agenda independently of President Trump—who won’t hesitate to launch into multiple rambling Twitter rants attacking them for pushing an agenda he has no input in.

    I honestly don’t understand how you even breathe, Mikey, given how goddamn stupid you are.

    You literally are one of the stupidest human beings in history.

  95. NYCmike says:

    Got it, Wes.

    So when President Trump, if he is re-elected, goes ahead and takes his daughters advice to pass some equal pay legislation, or minimum wage legislation, or family leave legislation, a Republican Congress should advocate for those things, and you think Republican voters will look to vote them back into office.

    Great plan!

  96. NYCmike says:

    Also, I may buy property in North Carolina, just to move my residence there, so that every time I vote I can you that your incredible intellect has the same affect on legislative happenings as I do!

    What a maroon you are!

    98. ‘Fool troll alert. That post just DEMANDS refutation! Right, jason?”

    Jason won’t come out and play, so fool troll goes away.

  98. Wes says:

    Ah, I see!

    You a President to win re-election you expect to advocate a grab bag of leftist initiatives. Somehow you think this means Mike Pence will succeed Trump as President.

    Of course Dems will have the six-year itch going in 2022 and establish lopsided congressional majorities. That means Trump is going to sign all that liberal legislation anyway if re-elected and have an even worse Democrat than Obama replace him in 2024.

    Explain to me how you’re making the case for Trump to be re-elected again. From what you’re saying, I should vote GOP for Congress and strategically vote for the Dem to beat him so the Left doesn’t get a repeat of the 2007-2011 timeframe in American politics from 2023 to 2027.

    Then again you are still a moron since you forget Congress has the option of passing nothing rather than giving Trump a leftist grab bag of goodies. That’s actually a possibility. Having Congress push its own agenda without Trump’s involvement as likely as that you and Messy will become Rhodes Scholars.

  99. Wes says:

    Somehow in my previous post, I omitted the initial verb, which was “want” between “You” and “a President.”

  100. NYCmike says:

    Wes,

    Stick to basics.

    Let Congress set legislation, which is their main job.

    Let the reality show real estate guy do his thing with the Executive Branch, whose main job it is to enforce the law, and let them figure out how to co-exist.

    Stop writing so many useless words, because this isn’t a George R R Martin novel.

    KISS.

  101. NYCmike says:

    “Somehow in my previous post, I omitted the initial verb, which was “want” between “You” and “a President.””

    -When you have verbal diarrhea, that happens.

  102. NYCmike says:

    “Somehow you think this means Mike Pence will succeed Trump as President.”

    -Did I mention Vice President Pence?

    Interesting……..I have code words that I don’t even know about……

  103. Wes says:

    There’s an old saying well known to political aficionados with functioning brains—a group excluding Mikey, I’m aware:

    The President proposes, and Congress disposes.

    Members of Congress with a President from their own party in office are not going to craft an agenda independent of his. It’s just n

  104. Wes says:

    …not going to happen.

    Only an idiot thinks otherwise.

  105. Wes says:

    No, Mikey. You didn’t mention Pence today.

    You have said in the past you want Trump to win re-election and have Pence succeed him.

    With those haploid cells composing your brain, I’m not surprised you’ve forgotten.

    In any event, if the scenario you laid out above happens, Pence will be the John McCain of 2024.

    I understand you’re too stupid to comprehend that, but it’s the truth.

  106. Wes says:

    In interviews, Mike Judge has claimed Mikey inspired this movie after a chance encounter between the two:

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=clYwX8Z43zg

  107. Wes says:

    I believe Judge said the following:

    I once met the world’s stupidest man and imagined a future dominated by people like him. It wasn’t pleasant.

    Yep, Mrs. McGrath is going far in the KY Senate race:(H/T: WP)

    Amy McGrath in 2019:

    “With Judge Kavanaugh, yeah, I probably would have voted for him.”

  109. mnw says:

    If Obmacare is found unconstitutional by the Court of appeals, that will be deeply emotionally satisfying, “Trump made all these promises about building a wall & repealing Obamacare, & he hasn’t done squat! Suckers!” (see, I speak troll)

    But it will throw a serious hot potato right into the middle of the 2020 race. The obvious solution is the old familiar “repeal & replace,” but that won’t be possible. The DEMs will block “replace.” They’d rather have a jim dandy club to beat Trump with, i.e., to hell with “the [supposed] 20 million Americans who will lose their healthcare.”

  110. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    115. So if there is an adverse court decision on Obamacare, do the Democrats seek to restore Obamacare as it previously existed, or do they advocate for single payer? Could see the issue further dividing the Democrats. The candidates will split on the issue, with Harris taking different positions each week.

  111. NYCmike says:

    “You have said in the past you want Trump to win re-election and have Pence succeed him.”

    -I would be fine with Pence, Haley, Rubio……even JEB!2024, as long as a crazy Democrat (do I need to write the word “crazy”?) doesn’t take over.

    As for your comparisons to McCain, I’ll worry about that after 4 more years of Trump picking good judges, just like after any other election.

    Other than that, I’ll smile and cast my one vote, just like you get, even though you are so brilliant!

  112. NYCmike says:

    I would think Obamacare implosion would be good for the Dems, because Congressional Republicans have shown they can’t put forth, nor can they communicate, good market-driven legislation.

  114. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Oh the poor snowflake, she has to work!!!

    “Today in an interview with WNYC’s “New Yorker Hour,” AOC accused Pelosi of intentionally saddling her with work to keep her out of the spotlight.
    “I was assigned to some of the busiest committees and four subcommittees,” AOC said. “So my hands are full. And sometimes I wonder if they’re trying to keep me busy.”
    The New York lawmaker had been describing why she declined Pelosi’s offer to sit on a standing committee on climate change. AOC said she declined the Speaker’s offer after she had refused AOC’s demands for what the committee should do.
    Asked about how the relationship with Pelosi is generally, AOC deadpanned: “I think sometimes people think that we have a relationship.””

    LOL, this is hilarious.

    So let me get this straight, Trump will propose the legislation and sign it, but it will be the “Republicans” fault?

    I love this place.

  125. Wes says:

    Mikey thinks Trump—who from an electoral standpoint is basically a synthesis of Ben Harrison and Herbert Hoover—is somehow able to defy basic political fundamentals.

    That 40-seat loss in the House in November proves Trump is just another pol like any other. He’s just basically governing as a right-wing Huey Long.

    McGrath’s initial support for Kavanaugh, and her ensuing flip-flop, sparked a fierce backlash from progressive activists supporting her bid to unseat Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Because McGrath had condemned Kavanaugh last year, some observers accused her of committing a rare “double flip-flop.””

    In the first place, good numbers can happen despite idiotic trade wars, not because of them

    The union fat cat bosses who contributed billions to elect liberal candidates for decades were right!

    The AFL-CIO agenda and the liberals they elected are the new conservatives.

    The logical path forward is to elect more of them and make sure we get rid of any “code pink” Republicans who still think we should have free enterprise, free markets and free trade.

  157. VictrC says:

    I read a good article this morning about how Pelosi is keeping “the squad” in check. Of course their response was she is discriminating against “women of color.”

    I have to admit that Pelosi is doing a better job of trying to keep the majority this time around. In her first go round she went full left wing fanatic and got pasted in the mid terms. This time she learned her lesson and is somewhat keeping the leftist looneys at bay. It’s why I have concern about regaining the House. She’s openly trying to protect those D’s that won R seats in suburban districts, which is the opposite of what I expected from her. Formidable she has become.

  158. jason says:

    I think the AFL-CIO strategy of electing more Democrats fits in well with NYC’s proposal to replace Republicans who vote for Trump’s proposals with liberal Democrats.

    The results will be fantastic. We will shut down evil international trade and impose massive tax hikes, and at the same time we will punish the Republicans who voted for Trump’s proposals and replace them with liberal Dems who will propose even MORE liberal legislation that Trump will sign but NOT be responsible for.

    Win-win.

  159. jason says:

    She’s openly trying to protect those D’s that won R seats in suburban districts, which is the opposite of what I expected from her.”

    Yeah, but there is an easy way to counter this, which is to promote the “squad” as the face of the new Democratic Party.

    With the help of the MSM, it should be very easy.

    Jason. – the whole situation is political. Rapinoe revealed herself to be nothing more than a partisan hack when she accepted invitations to see AOC, Pelosi et al but publicly refused to go to the White House (not that she’s invited).

    She’s using her platform for promote her agenda. She claims she wants Trump to be “the President for everyone” and support everyone’s values, et al. Here’s the problem, no one person can. Obama certainly didn’t represent the values or concerns of every American, he represented and pushed the agenda of his coalition without regard for his opponents, the same as anyone/everyone else would/does.

    What is most concerning is the way she has bullied her teammates into not going to the White House as well, because of her beliefs. I have to believe that there were at least a couple members of a 20+ person team that wanted/would like to go to the White House, but because of her public criticism and her publicly stating that she doesn’t believe any of her teammates would go, those who would want to go, can’t for fear of public shaming by the left and Rapinoe.

    Uhh.. BOL reports annual rate of inflation DROPPED from 1.8% to 1.6% this month.”

    LOL

    You really are an ignorant ass.

    Tariffs are indeed a tax on the consumer. You can have high taxes and low inflation, or low taxes and high inflation.

    Inflation is measure on much more than just products with tariffs on them. In fact, inflation is much more tied to the price of services than it is for the price of goods.

    But that doesn’t mean an increase in the price of goods is not detrimental to those who can least afford them.

    And of course the detrimental effects of tariffs and trade wars are much wider than just inflation.

    But since you are so ignorant, feel free to think tariffs are not a tax hike on consumers.

    If you DO want to educate yourself on tariffs, read this:

    https://www.barrons.com/articles/are-tariffs-just-another-tax-on-consumers-51557581400

    25% from 10% after the latest round of trade negotiations ended with no deal. And there may yet be more to come.

    But who actually pays the tariffs? President Donald Trump has said in the past that China pays, but is that really the case?

    “Countries don’t pay tariffs,” says Jason Pye, vice president for legislative affairs at FreedomWorks, a conservative advocacy group based in Washington. “Businesses don’t pay tariffs. Only consumers pay these costs. Tariff increases are nothing more than a tax hike on individuals.”

  178. Tina says:

    Twitter down?

  179. jason says:

    nd silly things like jobs coming back to the U.S.”

    Yeah, that IS silly.

    Many of the “jobs” Trump wants to take credit for were planned due to market conditions way before he was even elected.

    The fact is most of what is made in China would not have a market in the US if it was made here.

  180. jason says:

    Breaking news… Joe Manchin is a “conservative leaning Dem”.

    “Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) expressed some regret Wednesday over his vote to confirm Alex Acosta, President Donald Trump’s embattled head of the U.S. Department of Labor.

    The conservative-leaning Democrat was asked in a CNN interview about the controversy surrounding Acosta, who as a federal prosecutor had once cut a sweetheart plea deal with accused sex-trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.”

  181. jason says:

    NYC believes in supply and demand?

    Is that why he supports tariffs?

  182. jason says:

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday that China was not living up to promises it made on buying agricultural products from American farmers as the world’s two largest economies work to resolve a trade dispute.”

    Awwwww, really?

    Not to worry, the taxpayers will bail out the farmers.

    And the AFL-CIO conservatives will be here cheering the spending.

  183. NYCmike says:

    “Is that why he supports tariffs?”

    -Did the Founding Fathers believe in supply and demand? Is that why they supported tariffs?

    I believe in “free trade”.

    I put that term in quotes, as I am still trying to figure out how you define that term. Your definition seems different from how Milton Friedman describes it.

  184. NYCmike says:

    “And the AFL-CIO conservatives will be here cheering the spending.”

    -And former Republicans like jason will be trying to reduce spending………….YEAH, RIGHT!

    That will be the day!

  185. NYCmike says:

    Funny things is I haven’t heard Trump, or any of his advisers, use union jobs as their reasoning for the tariffs.

  187. jason says:

    “Funny things is I haven’t heard Trump, or any of his advisers, use union jobs as their reasoning for the tariffs.”

    Funny thing… NYC and Richard Trumka think Trump’s trade wars are great. Except Trumpa is a lot smarter than NYC, he knows protectionism and isolationism when he sees it, and he knows Trump’s agenda is exactly the agenda of the AFL-CIO.

    The only thing I disagree here is the word “unlikely”

    “While weathering criticism from Republican lawmakers and traditionally Republican special interests over his anti-trade policies, President Donald Trump has one somewhat unlikely ally: the head of America’s largest union”

    “The nation’s largest federation of unions on Thursday praised President Trump’s plan to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, even as GOP lawmakers in Congress and U.S. trade partners condemned the proposal.”

    “As head of the AFL-CIO, Trumka presides over approximately $93 million in assets (as of the latest reports, from 2013).

    As head of the AFL-CIO, Trumka wields an impressive grassroots machine. In the 2010 election cycle, the AFL-CIO:
    Sent 28.6 million pieces of direct mail
    Mobilized 100,000 volunteers for door-to-door canvassing activities
    Can openly target up to 13 million union members of voting age
    Trumka was an early friend of the Obama Administration, named to the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board in 2006.
    Trumka has often boasted of a “close” relationship with the Obama Administration, admitting that “I’m at the white House a couple times a week — two, three times a week. I have conversations every day with someone in the White House or in the administration. Every day.”
    Other organizations, such as the Communist Party of America, have emphasized a good working relationship with Trumka on political campaigns.”

  188. jason says:

    “And former Republicans like jason will be trying to reduce spending”

    I remember when NYC thought it was a great idea that grandstanding Ted shut down the government over spending.

    But that was before Trump announced debt was not a problem, you could just print the money.

    Like all his other “principles”, NYC dropped that one like a hot potato.

    “Rep. Wm. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) unloaded on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday for “using the race card” after Ocasio-Cortez accused Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) of being racially insensitive.

    Clay, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, fumed at Ocasio-Cortez and the group of progressive lawmakers that includes Reps. Rashida Tlaib (Mich.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.) and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.).

    “What a weak argument, because you can’t get your way and because you’re getting pushback you resort to using the race card? Unbelievable. That’s unbelievable to me,” Clay said. “I could care less. I could really care less. I agree with the Speaker. Four people, four votes out of 240 people, who cares.”

    I am fine with Milton Friedman. Are you?

    “The proponents of quotas say, “Free trade is fine in theory but it must be reciprocal. We cannot open our markets to foreign products if foreigners close their markets to us.” Japan, they argue, to use their favorite whipping boy, “keeps her vast internal market for the private domain of Japanese industry but then pushes her products into the U.S. market and complains when we try to prevent this unfair tactic.”The argument sounds reasonable. It is, in fact, utter nonsense. Exports are the cost of trade, imports the return from trade, not the other way around.”
