    ‘The equivalent of Trump’: Black Lives Matter casts pall over Buttigieg campaign

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/jan/13/black-lives-matter-undercuts-pete-buttigieg-campai/?utm_source=onesignal&utm_campaign=pushnotify&utm_medium=push

    “To me, Mayor Pete is the equivalent of Trump,” Ms. Redding told The Washington Times on Monday. “I feel like Trump is very aggressive with his racism, and I think Mayor Pete is very passive with his racism.”

    If Mr. Trump and Mr. Buttigieg “are my options I would not vote. They are just two of the same people,” she said, and denied recent news reports identifying her as a supporter of Sen. Bernard Sanders.

    George Gammon explains Jeff Snider’s take on the repo market

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5AR-KBVgJ0&t=488s

    1) it’s s shortage of good collateral

    2) the collateral it has is often masked as a good treasury bond but that was actually swapped out for a junk bond before entering the treasury market meaning that the primary dealers are leery of accepting anything even good collateral on the fear that behind it is a swapped junk bond.
    Basically a manufactured collateral is bringing in extreme risk to the point that the primary dealers want nothing to do with it (think 2008 when mortgage backed security junk was being substituted as treasury bonds)

    11. I see the Biden video clip being featured in Trump campaign adds. What Biden said is cringe worthy. The Trump campaign will make sure a large percentage of the voting public has the opportunity to view it.

    In the comment section to Greenwald’s twitter is a video of Biden doing what he described, prepared by cartoonist Sven Stoffels. It is a absolute must watch.

    https://twitter.com/svenstoffels

    Add Hunter Biden’s follies, which the Democrats have made front page news in their impeachment attempt, and Biden in 2020 may look worse than Hillary did in 2016.

  15. Ben says:

    IF Monmouth is correct, this isn’t surprising. Iowa does have a tendency to pick the more moderate candidate, ie, Kerry in 2004, Gore in 2000 vs Bradley, Harkin. I’d be surprised is they end up with Bernie. Iowans want the person who is more electable. I’m from there. But no way in hell they will NOT pick Trump in 2020. The state is moving more Conservative.

    Jadon is another war monger like McCain always looking for that last big hurrah moment to relive the glory days of American imperialistic expansion and control of peaceful regions.

    Unfortunately, General Salami was arriving at the airport for a well-deserved and hard-earned vacation in Iraq (it’s lovely in January there) when he met his demise due to unchecked American aggression…and Americans wonder why they are scorned in the Middle East when a well-respected terrorist can’t get some R&R after months of maiming and massacring.

  19. Tgca says:

    Again, the Academy proves it’s white privileged by refusing to nominate diverse film and individuals with only one person of color being nominated this season. Our cousins across the Pond in Great Britain fared worse with not a single nomination of diversity in any main category.

    This is the world we now live in, where except for one Native American running for POTUS, there is no diversity of color representing the vast number of folks being ignored and cast aside by a privileged white society.

    Where is Michael Moore when we need him most to raise awareness to this extreme inequality? Perhaps if he engaged in a hunger strike people would finally wake up and pay attention. White folks are truly evil!

  20. Tgca says:

    Warren confirms Bernie stated a “woman can’t win” in a private meeting they had in her apartment in Dec 2018.

    Bernie’s campaign stated it was a lie and he never said that and said they’ve only heard this by rumor and not by Warren herself but now Warren confirms. Check mate Bernie!

    Let the fireworks begin. Respected Native American lesbian-like female candidate vs bitter old white geezer male.

    Personally, I could care less, as its silly and irrelevant. I’m more interested in WTF Bernie was doing in Warrens apartment. Now that’s newsworthy!

  23. jason says:

    I give Bernie a pass. I think it is ok for you to say you don’t think a woman can get elected, what is the problem with having an opinion that says you think a man has a better chance?

    I don’t think that is necessarily sexist, any more than I think it is not homophobic to think you probably have a better chance getting elected if you are straight than gay.

  33. jason says:

    Sander’s aide wants to send Trump supporter to re-education camps if he wins.

    Proud Obamacommunist must be having an orgasm, so proud!

    “Jurek goes on to say that after the Nazis fell in Germany, the country had to spend a lot of money reeducating people into not being Nazis anymore.

    “Like, we’re probably going to have to do the same f***ing thing here,” said Jurek.

    “That’s kind of what all Bernie’s whole f***king like, “hey, free education for everybody because we’re going to have to teach you not to be a f***ing Nazi.”

  34. jason says:

    But the problem is Trump’s attack on Mika’s face…

    “So the only way you can confront them is with violence,” he adds to the undercover reporter.

    Violence seems to be a common go-to for Jurek. For instance, in the video, Jurek claims that it’s time for a very real revolution, and not just a political one, and that all those who resist should be killed.

    “Well, I’ll tell you what in Cuba, what did they do to reactionaries? You want to fight against the revolution, you’re going to die for it, mother f***er,” said Jurek.

    This extends, not to just to billionaires and Trump supporters, but to the media as well.

    “I’m ready to throw down now…the billionaire class. The f***ing media, pundits. Walk into MSNBC studios, drag those mother f***ers out by their hair and light them on fire in the streets,” said Jurek.

    He is also of the mind that when it comes to free speech, those who say what he considers to the be the wrong things should also be dealt with violently.

    “Free speech has repercussions…there are consequences for your f***ing actions…you should expect a violent reaction and you deserve a violent reaction.”

    On top of these figures, Jurek seems to have a very real problem with Sanders rival, Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

    “Like f**k if we can beat Donald Trump, as long as we nominated a woman. Like f***ing idiot. Like what the f**k? The world is on fire. This is an emergency situation, and you’re hung up on vaginas.”

  35. jason says:

  40. jason says:

    Dismissal is not really a great idea.

    I don’t want a circus, but I think you need a trial to put this behind us.

    Let the moonbats make their case, they don’t have one, let the President’s team refute it, and take a vote. If they have the votes to depose Bolton and Mulvaney, let them depose them. Then take a vote.

  42. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    41. Agree with Jason. There needs to be a trial, at which the Republicans will finally have a chance to rebut the accusations. At this point, if the process is perceived as fair, believe all the Republican Senators will vote against impeachment.

  43. Phil says:

    Tina, while the two ridiculous articles deserve to be dismissed on their face, an acquittal is the better outcome for Trump. I see where you are coming from. This travesty has already gone much further than it ever should have. However, an acquittal takes away the Democratic talking point that the Republican Senate was “afraid” of a trial. Give them their trial. Weak case and even if republicans give Democrats their Bolton testimony, pretty sure whatever he says won’t amount to anything – probably will serve to help Trump’s case if anything. Bolton isn’t going to help his liberal enemies on Iran in the Senate.

    Finally, I don’t see Collins etc giving Dems their witness in Bolton without giving Trump at least one of his witnesses – namely, Hunter Biden. I’ll take that trade all day long.

  44. Phil says:

    Of course, the way it will probably play out is that Bolton doesn’t actually testify because Trump invokes executive privilege. I’m not crazy about that, because it allows Democrats to claim Trump used executive privilege to shut down Bolton’s “damaging testimony”. You know that’s exactly what they’ll do.

  47. jason says:

    I think if Bolton really wanted to screw Trump over he would have already done it. I don’t see Mulvaney being helpful either.

    If Bolton REALLY wanted to testify, why not take the opportunity when it was available instead of the risk of never being called by the Senate.

  48. Phil says:

    Actually, McConnell now says the trial begins Next Tuesday.

    Warren, Van Hollen Ask SEC To Investigate Insider Trading By Mar-A-Lago Guests Before Soleimani Airstrike


    “In the five days prior to launching a strike that killed Iran’s most important military leader, Donald Trump roamed the halls of Mar-a-Lago, his private resort in Florida, and started dropping hints to close associates and club-goers that something huge was coming … Trump began telling friends and allies hanging at his perennial vacation getaway that he was working on a ~big’ response to the Iranian regime that they would be hearing or reading about very •soon.’ [T]he president specifically mentioned he’d been in close contact with his top national security and military advisers on gaming out options for an aggressive action that could quickly materialize.” “

  50. Tina says:

    The senate Rs are acting like losers Phil. There is nothing to negotiate. Mitchie is playing it right. But l know where this is heading and it’s not good news. The senate rinos don’t want trump to call his witnesses and do not want the house r managers. The house r managers are most qualified to handle. They are the best we got.

    The Syrian chemical weapons were no more real than the idea that Soleimani was going to attack a US embassy.

    58. The U.S. Congress already authorized the military action that is taking place in Iraq. There was no further authorization needed to attack an enemy combatant.

  61. PresidentPaul! says:

    My astute assessment is this hurts The Native American candidate in the long run because Grumpy’s supporters are not going to embrace any candidate they believe the MSM and DNC are selectively trying to prop up, especially in what appears to be an act of desperation. They went through this with the Beast back in 2016. I think it will be too much for them to bare to have Grumpy shut out again by liberal elites.

    4. Bernie Sanders was, once again, the only authentic candidate on the stage, especially when he was asked about that planted story.

    He handled Joe Biden on the Iraq War though could’ve bloodied him up badly on his other, many foreign policy failures.

    Biden also appeared lost.

  83. Bitterlaw says:

    I watched the last 1 1/2 hours. I thought Biden did well. I think the narrative that he seemed lost and out of touch last night is Republicans seeing what they want to see. I have never liked Biden but he is a threat to Trump. Warren was ol. Sanders was Sanders. The Mayor did pretty well. Sen. K seemed like the least radical but that is a low bar. Styer just wants to be a climate warrior.

    The bottom line from the Dem debate last night is all folks are talking about is the rigged CNN question to Sanders and all of the negativity on the Internet of Warren with #NeverWarren and #CNNisTrash trending. I think this was a very foolish and unnecessary move by the Warren campaign, and it may have momentarily felt good last night getting CNN in her corner but the reactions all morning have not been in her interest. Bernie folks are livid as they are seeing this as the same dirty tricks Clinton played in 2016. Bernie has numerous female supporters as well who are trashing Warren for this so not sure how she thinks this helps her in the long run.

    Why do HHR sycophants look the other way when these folks commit treasonous crimes…and yes, plastic straw use is treasonous because it destroys the environment and leads to climate change which leads to regional conflict and wars, death, and famine over land and water rights which drags the US into conflicts that costs Americans billions and puts American military folks at risk which leads to terrorist targeting US for intervening in regional conflicts.

    It’s the butterfly effect! Plastic straw use in the US results in war, famine, and acts of terrorism all because of the purposeful betrayal of environmental laws by a selfish elitist few.

    On another note, Apple offered to assist in accessing phone data of college students who had the audacity to film an exchange where a privileged white Christian male refused to use non-binary pronouns when participating in a campus debate. CEO Tim Cook believes freedom comes with responsibility and accountability, and if Apple can help in any way to foster equality, then that outweighs the right to individual freedom of speech.

    “Former Obama national security adviser General James Jones (2009-2010) isn’t going to make Democrats happy with what he has to say about the dangers Iran presents and what he thinks about President Donald Trump taking out IRGC Qasem Soleimani.

    Many Democrats have been pushing the talking point that there was no real reason to take out Soleimani, this despite all his past killing of Americans and the attack on our embassy in Baghdad. The Democrats even tried to handcuff the president’s actions with a War Powers resolution, although it’s symbolic only. It’s an astonishing position to take, especially after the fired ballistic missiles at U.S. forces in Iraq at two bases.

    But Jones was having none of that. “I think it was absolutely the right thing to do,” Jones declared. “I give them credit for doing that.” He said a continued tough approach was the right way to go. As articulated by the president, it’s a potential game changer,” Jones said.

    “It seems Avenatti has not learned any lessons since being indicted on fraud, extortion, embezzlement, tax evasion, and other financial charges. Five weeks after his arrest, he received $1 million in legal fees from a client’s settlement. Authorities say he “shift[ed] it through multiple bank accounts and use[d] cashier’s checks to spend it.” Here’s how they say it was spent:

    Avenatti used the money to cover rent on his luxury apartment in Century City, pay his legal bills and buy a $50,000 Mercedes-Benz, according to the court documents.

    Avenatti initially tried to buy the car in his own name but then worked with his first ex-wife, Christine Avenatti Carlin, to put it in her name instead, prosecutors allege. He drew from the $1 million to pay his personal driver, James Cameron, they said.

    Is your blood boiling yet? If it wasn’t enough that he used money that wasn’t his to pay cash for a Mercedes-Benz, read on.

    Avenatti also used the money to pay membership fees to Exclusive Resorts, an elite vacation club with luxury properties in Florida, New York and California, where Avenatti stayed at least four times while awaiting trial, prosecutors allege. He allowed a girlfriend to stay at an Exclusive Resorts property in Tuscany, Italy, they said.

    At the time he spent all of this money, he knew he owed more than that amount to creditors and was derelict in his child support and alimony obligations to his second ex-wife, Lisa Avenatti Storie. “

    Zzzzzzzzz…

    “Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, noted that the report blames the GAO, not Trump, for withholding the funds.

    “I don’t think that changes anything” in the impeachment trial, he said.

    The White House has clashed with GAO before as part of its battles with Congress, particularly the Democratic House.

    In a Nov. 5 memo, OMB general counsel Mark Paoletta told federal agencies that they are not obligated to comply with GAO legal decisions. He said the agency is part of the legislative branch and therefore has no authority over the executive branch.

    “OMB respects GAO’s opinions as those of an agency of a coequal branch of government,” the memo said. “However, under the constitutional doctrine of separation of powers, a legal opinion by a Legislative Branch agency cannot bind the Executive Branch.”

    Violations of the Impoundment Act carry no criminal penalties, so the watchdog agency’s only recourse in enforcing its legal opinion would be to file a civil lawsuit. But the prospects of such a lawsuit would be uncertain, partly because the Trump administration eventually released the funding to Ukraine. Only one such lawsuit has been filed – in the 1970s – and it was dismissed when the withheld funding was released.”

    Now that the Republicans lost their power, mainly due to voters not seeing any difference between the 2 parties, Cuomo signed into law this terrible bill. Hopefully, for the next election cycle, Republicans will be able to campaign on the stark differences between the 2 main political parties, and they can attempt to fix this mess.

    Mikey is too stupid to know Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) has announced his retirement. Liz Cheney tried to primary him in 2014 and declared him too liberal for the state. Polls showed him trouncing her, and she subsequently bowed out of the primary, citing “family concerns”—i e, not wanting Enzi to annihilate her. Two years later, Rep. Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) announced her retirement. Cheney faced a primary filled with unknowns and won with an underwhelming 38% of the vote en route to winning her House seat in this overwhelmingly GOP state.

    Faced with a primary against Lummis this year, Cheney wisely decided to seek re-election rather than higher office.

    Other than Sen. Alan Cranston (1978-1997), WY has generally eschewed Heir Force candidates in favor of Senators who earned their way into office without being known as part of established families, so Lummis probably would have had a distinct advantage by not being a popinjay coasting on her father’s laurels.

    NYC senate goes to the Democrats.

    The Mikey Maneuver was successful, the message was sent but NYC is still unhappy.

    Assassination of Sulaimani is essentially an act of war.

  195. jason says:

    Wes, if the Mikey Maneuver can work in places like WY that will REALLY SEND A MESSAGE.

  196. jason says:

    Assassination of Sulaimani is essentially an act of war.”

    You got it wrong.

    His killing of hundreds of American soldiers and promoting terrorism throughout the ME was an act of war.

    Killing him was an act of justice.

  197. PresidentPaul! says:

    American Prospect covers potential Trump crimes.

    Not only did Trump play fast and loose with the facts. His report to Congress does not even try to comply with the statutory demand that he provide the requisite “constitutional and legislative authority” for his action. The War Powers Act doesn’t leave it up to the president to decide whether Soleimani was an “imminent danger.” Instead, he must either show that a previous congressional authorization allows him to order the assassination or persuade Congress to pass a new resolution authorizing his dramatic use of force.
    And make no mistake: Under international law, the United States is now indeed at war with Iran. Killing a high official of a foreign government is an act of war under international law and the United Nations Charter.
    This act of defiance already marks Trump’s assassination of Soleimani as a lawless abuse of power.
    Trump’s silence on the crucial question of his legal authority to assassinate Soleimani speaks louder than words. Over the past two decades, top lawyers in every administration have stretched the relevant statutory and constitutional language to rationalize their commander in chief’s war-making powers in a broad range of problematic situations—leading, as in the case of former Bush administration official John Yoo’s notorious torture memos, to widespread condemnation for unprofessional conduct. Given this history of backlash, it apparently seemed safer for Trump’s legal team to say absolutely nothing to back up the president’s tweets threatening Iran with an escalating series of 52 attacks as if he were an omnipotent despot.

    Once the government subsidy gravy train ends, Tesla sales plummet:

    “Tesla’s overall vehicle registrations nearly halved in the U.S. state of California during the fourth quarter, according to a Dominion Cross-Sell report, which collates data from state motor vehicle records.
    The massive drop comes as tax credit for Tesla buyers ended in 2019. It had fallen to $3,750 at the start of the year and had halved to $1,875 in July.
    An existing $7,500 U.S. tax credit for electric vehicles, which allows taxpayers to deduct a part of the cost of buying an electric car, phases out over 15 months once an automaker hits 200,000 cumulative EV sales, which Tesla hit in July 2018.”

    Elon Musk Says Tesla Will Roll Out 1 Million Robo-Taxis by Next Year. Here’s How He Plans on Doing It

    On Monday, CEO Elon Musk revealed the company’s plans to compete with companies such as Uber and Lyft by using its strategy for an autonomous ride-hailing fleet.
    Robo-taxis are essentially any Tesla vehicle with autonomous-driving functionality. To turn a Tesla into a robo-taxi, a car’s owner simply adds it to the Tesla Network platform via the company’s app.
    Musk said that by “next year for sure, we will have over 1 million robo-taxis on the road.”
    Riders will be able to summon a robo-taxi via the same Tesla app– similar to how they call for an Uber or Lyft today. The key difference, of course, is that there won’t be a driver in the car.

  229. PresidentPaul! says:

    Meaning anytime you’re not using your tesli, you can download the ap, and apparently turn it into a Lyft driver while you’re asleep.

  230. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    244, The Chinese government & Elon Musk will build one million new Robo-taxis Teslas by next year.

    Wow! That certainly is impressive! Also heard that a delegation from Mars will be present at the Tesla factory’s dedication.

    Amoral Scumbag has posted what, 20000 dishonest posts in a row.

    Both are despicable excuses for human beings.

  234. jason says:

    When it comes to gold, you can listen to Bunu, still in his parent’s basement surrounded by Ron Paul memorabilia, or Warren Buffet, a billionaire.

    “(Gold) gets dug out of the ground in Africa, or someplace. Then we melt it down, dig another hole, bury it again and pay people to stand around guarding it. It has no utility. Anyone watching from Mars would be scratching their head.”

    “You could take all the gold that’s ever been mined, and it would fill a cube 67 feet in each direction. For what it’s worth at current gold prices, you could buy — not some — all of the farmland in the United States. Plus, you could buy 10 Exxon Mobils (XOM), plus have $1 trillion of walking-around money. Or you could have a big cube of metal. Which would you d? Which is going to produce more value?”

  235. jason says:

    Yeah, I am skeptical that Trump will get 20% of the black vote as some here have claimed.

    But I think he might get 15-17% of the male black vote, maybe 7-8% of the female black vote. If he gets 12% of the black vote it could make a difference in tight races.

    Especially since even the ultra liberal rag Atlantic is worried about the Hispanic vote.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2020/01/democrats-should-be-worried-about-latino-vote/604882/

  236. jason says:

    I think Trump will do better in the black vote than he did in 2016.

    In 2016, Bill Clinton was telling blacks Trump would put them back in chains.

  237. jason says:

    Of course, Biden said that about Romney in 2012.

    “Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday told a diverse crowd here, including many African-Americans, that presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney would “put you all back in chains”

  238. jason says:

    I remember at the time Amoral Scumbag was just outraged about this, and stated that “this kind of rhetoric is much worse than what Trump will say in 2017 about Mika’s face”.

    He didn’t say that?

    My bad.

  239. Phil says:

    Pretty obvious what the game is here. It’s the Kavanaugh script all over again. Keep rolling out “evidence” in this case turning the Senate trial into a giant never ending investigative hearing with the prosecution continuing on the offense 24/7 in the name of “a fair trial”. Pelosi in effect controlling things through her friends in the media. Never ending new evidence, new witnesses, new bombshells, continuous and forever.

    Democrats had a good day yesterday setting the narrative with no blowback from Republicans (is anyone surprised?). Republicans are pikers. Democrats play to win. Of course, when you control the media it’s easier to control public. The beat goes on.

  240. dblaikie says:

    I take all of this stuff cynically. The media, and that includes every media outlet, wants high ratings. To get ratings you need drama. Politicians don’t care about ratings. Instead they care about coverage and being in front of the camera. The best way to get coverage is to appear undecided.

    With those truths in mind perhaps the best thing to do is to consider and focus on those who are not trying to covered and seem to be ignored by the media. The people I am paying attention to in that category is Senema, Mancion, and Jones — especially the latter two. Those people are going to be under tremendous pressure and we probably won’t know how they will vote on witnesses until 10 minutes before the vote.

    However I find it telling that the media only focus in on whether Republicans will stick together. The fact is that so far it is Democrats who have broken ranks.

  241. jason says:

    I know, but in the end it was all for naught.

    The same will happen here. The Dems can declare victory if all this gets them an R vote for conviction, but Trump will still be in office.

  242. jason says:

    I wish EVERY R senator, including scumbag Romney, would realize the MSM is NOT their friend.

  243. jason says:

    Heh..

    Vadym Prystaiko, Foreign Minister of Ukraine: “Frankly, I have not spoken with [Lev Parnas], and again, frankly, I don’t trust any word he is now saying.”

  244. jason says:

    If you think Murkowski will vote to convict Trump you can make some money.

    On Predictit you can buy yes at 18 cents.

    Btw, if you DON’T think Manchin will vote to acquit you can make money.

    Right now it is 64% yes, 36% no.

    In other words, the betting market thinks the odds of Manchin voting to acquit is twice the odds of Murkowski voting to convict.

    Romney? 76% to 24% acquit.

  245. Phil says:

    Jason, you are right. At the end of the day Trump will be acquitted and still be in office. Democrats know this. However, their goal is to use this trial and “the cover up verdict” to bleed him in the court of public opinion for November. That and to oust Collins, Gardner, and McSalley to help get control of the Senate.

  246. jason says:

    Betting odds that at least one R will vote to convict?

    14%

  247. jason says:

    I would like to see a poll in ME, CO and AZ on how many people in November will vote based on impeachment.

    I bet the number is low, and even among the people who will vote on that issue, it is probably a wash between those pro and anti-Trump.

  248. Phil says:

    I’m surprised it’s that high. No way to get any Republican on board for conviction….or Manchin.

    The vote will be 46-54. Take it to the bank. Possibility Jones votes no on the second article as well – 45-55 on that one.

  249. Phil says:

    In the end, probably right that impeachment has little bearing on the November election except on the margins.

  250. Phil says:

    Saw a tape of Limbaugh on his November 19th show predicting point blank that Lev Palmas would be the next “surprise” the Democrats rolled out. Does Rush know these people or does Rush know these people?

  268. lisab says:

    the obvious benefit of the S&P over gold is that it is a diversified portfolio, that even includes gold producers

    gold is a single commodity where you have the absolute risk of an diversified portfolio

    you typically cannot buy bourbon through the usps

    but you can just drive to distillery and buy it

    they usually have a club for high end customers

  275. lisab says:

    the point being if the government actually was so much in the toilet that they started seizing gold, you really could not do much with a few gold coins — i suppose you could look at them

    but you could still sell high end bourbon, or scotch, or weed or wine to the 1%

    the nice thing about bourbon is that unlike wine it keeps very well under most conditions for decades. buy a case … you need money … take a bottle and sell it.

    “From an energy perspective, what is most notable is China’s agreement to increase energy imports from the US by up to $52.4bn over the next two years as a part of a commitment to spend around $200bn more on US goods and services than it did in 2017.”

  294. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    319. Trump was as aggressive getting Germany to buy U.S. natural gas. Germany is the third largest natural gas importer in the world. About 25% of its energy comes from natural gas. Almost 50% of it comes from Russia; and with the new Nord Stream pipeline that is expected to rise. Trump got the Germans to buy more U.S. LNG.

    Apparently Merkel is not bothered by becoming energy dependent on Putin — can see why Obama had her cell phone tapped.

I said, why couldn’t yall just wait until November and vote him out if you think he’s so bad….he responded “that’s what impeachment is all about. Making sure he gets voted out in November.” They really think the “stain of impeachment” will make people not vote for him in November.

It’s like when you know you are going to have an argument with somebody so you rehearse it in your head. You think of a great line. Then the argument doesn’t really happen but you say it anyway.

    I always enjoy Bitter’s cynicism. But Bitter there was no argument. The CNN talking head asked a pointed question and she just replied. So if I go with your way of thinking then she decided she was going to unload the line with the first question a talking head from MSM asked her. Now she may have rehearsed her delivery. If she did — good for her. She wanted maximum effect. And that is just what she got.

    So the bottom line is that if this was a long planed strike, or just a simple reaction it doesn’t matter. McSally benefited big time.

    Perhaps take a look at IMBBY; GEO; MIE (or BGR); REM.

    These stocks & CEFs are all deeply out of favor. Given their yield, you should be able to just wait out any correction, assuming you’re not betting the baby’s milk money. The divvys for all 4 are safe, imo.

  331. Phil says:

    ‘They are now one in the same”. Sadly, it has reached that point. The funny part about it is that the more the MSM goes off the deep end with this insanity, the more and more it blows up what little credibility they had left. Helps Trump and makes it more likely he gets re-elected.

  332. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Some advice from Australia’s indigenous population regarding fire prevention:

    “For thousands of years, the Indigenous people of Australia set fire to the land.

    Long before Australia was invaded and colonised by Europeans, fire management techniques – known as “cultural burns” – were being practised.
    The cool-burning, knee-high blazes were designed to happen continuously and across the landscape.
    The fires burn up fuel like kindling and leaf detritus, meaning a natural bushfire has less to devour.
    Since Australia’s fire crisis began last year, calls for better reintegration of this technique have grown louder. But it should have happened sooner, argues one Aboriginal knowledge expert.
    “The bush needs to burn,” says Shannon Foster.
    She’s a knowledge keeper for the D’harawal people – relaying information passed on by her elders – and an Aboriginal Knowledge lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).”

    It is the same in California. Fire is natural as rain in California; the best control mechanism is controlled burns and removal of excess brush. Plus, as they have done in California over the last year, limit sources of ignition, even if it means turning off power temporarily in some areas.

  333. Bitterlaw says:

    FATCA forces EVERY foreign bank and financial institution IN THE WORLD to share information about their depositors with the Treasury Department.
    And if these foreign banks refuse to comply? You guessed it. They’ll lose access to US dollars.
    We’ve continued to see the US government rely on this tactic more and more over the past ten years; in 2015, for example, the Treasury Department famously hit French bank BNP Paribas with an $8.9 billion fine.
    BNP’s egregious crime? They were doing business with countries that the US government doesn’t like– countries like Cuba and Iran.
    But wait a minute. BNP is a FRENCH bank! France has no beef with Cuba or Iran!
    Doesn’t matter. Uncle Sam doesn’t like Cuba and Iran. BNP did business with Cuba and Iran. So BNP was punished.
    And if BNP didn’t pay this ridiculous $8.9 billion fine? Yep, you know what’s coming– they’d lose their access to US dollars.
    Just last week they did it again when the Iraqi parliament voted to expel all US troops from the country.

    So Mayor Butt says we need a wartime veteran in the White House. Oh, by implication, I wonder who he means?

    Gimme a break! A reserve officer program postee (not someone who came up the ranks of training and action) in Afghanistan on a military base for half a year who was a desk jockey and mainly acted as a chauffeur for his commander does not count as someone with vast war time experiences which is what he is trying to imply. The vast majority of military folks deployed overseas see more frontline action and are at risk than a chauffeur watching the vehicle during errands. In fact, any inner city cop faces more risk than Mayor Butt did overseas.

    I find this insulting to those that served that Mayor Butt somehow suggests he is the only one with war time knowledge and experience. Folks in the Senate and House who sit on committees have more knowledge and experience them him on the military as an errand boy because they actually are briefed and educated on matters of importance even if they are not deployed.

    If you apply Mayor Butt’s thinking, any POTUS driver is qualified to be POTUS because they travel with POTUS all around d the world, as therefore must have the relevant experience. Hog wash I say!

Though every service is important, to somehow state that I would have been at the same risk as frontline folks is absurd.

    This is the dishonesty I deplore in politicians. Mayor Pete is trying so hard to prove he is a normal guy yet his entire career path has been one of privilege. He took the Chelsea Clinton road but pretends he was actually Colin Powell.

    If Bitter finds these activities relaxing and it allows him the opportunity to express his creative side, great for him. We. All need an outlet to relax and reflect.

    Bitter is humble too. That’s why I admire him so and am glad to call him my friend. He coaches girls basketball even though they always lose. Now that’s humble.

    I don’t think you folks really understand what a great achievement it is to a be a humble sensitive sweater-loving Flower Show enthusiast Philly metrosexual after growing up in the Sewer State.

    …and they say people can’t change for the better…that’s BS!

  372. Tgca says:

    I should also share that when I relocated to South Jersey only 10 miles from Philly a couple of years back, I was like Geez! What am I doing? Starting over and not knowing one single person here.

    But guess what folks? It was my friend Bitter who reached out and welcomed me with open arms and offered to show me around Philly with all it had to offer in history, floral gardens, and arts and crafts venues. He even alerted me to Woody’s in Center City, a popular gay bar for congregating after work that he frequented with his flamboyant and less masculine friends…though I reminded him I did not drink or engage in such after work City rituals. He was fully supportive and understood, and provided alternative recreational recommendations, like local Independent Cinemas, him being a connoisseur of art films and all…even going as far in offering to accompany me in a recent revival showing of BrokeBack Mountain. He was aghast when he found out I never saw it and confided to me what a great love story it was for those different folks, and that it was only rivaled by The Notebook, one of his favorite films he introduced to his wife years back and which now he made a yearly custom to watch with her on their anniversary.

    So again, I thank my friend Bitter for being the man most of us here at HHR do not have the strength to be.

There is nothing wrong with learning a new word daily and using it in practice as that’s how we better ourselves. My high school Engwish teacher gave us 20 to 30 words weekly so that by the time we got to the SAT we were fluent in about 1,500 more words most folks in the Sewer State never knew existed.

    Lisab thinks I am fat because of a video from 10 years ago (SChool Board). I lost 20 pounds since then by being incredibly stressed out and drinking soda instead of eating food.

    Jason?

  385. lisab says:

    i would not call you fat … large maybe

    what are you, like 200 pounds? that is not fat

  386. Bitterlaw says:

    Got as high as 208. Down to 185 now. No exercise or change to a healthier diet.

  387. lisab says:

    185 is certainly relatively healthy

    the average american man in 1960 weighed 166 ponds

    in 2002 it was 202 pounds

    so you are better than average

  388. lisab says:

    sorry, 191 pounds in 2002

  389. Bitterlaw says:

    Not sure that a diabetic who drinks soda more often than eating food is healthy.

    Good luck to the Chiefs and Niners. Should be a great game.

    Bitter is 185….Geez! FAT @$$!!!

    You should be between 125 and 130 pounds at most.

    I can prescribe a diet plan for you to achieve that goal. Just let me know.

    You like seaweed juice?

    I have great recipes too.

    – kelp salad

    – braised tofu
    – kale latkes
    – and many more scrumptious meals

    Don’t be shy to ask now.

  395. lisab says:

    sdc,

    the thing about investing in gold is that people for some reason think you should invest in gold or alternatively invest in stocks (plural)

    gold is a single commodity. it happens to have a low correlation with most stocks, which makes it useful in a diversified portfolio.

    but it is a single investment. investing only in gold would be like investing only in one stock.

    for the vast majority of people it should be no more than 3% of your portfolio and even that would be huge.

    Tom Cotton hired Bill Kristol’s son as his legislative director and enjoys endless promotion from the neocon Free Beacon, which is run by Kristol’s son in law and funded by Cotton’s largest donor.

  399. jason says:

    I bet Bill Kristol’s son is more conservative than Bunu.

  400. jason says:

    OMG, I endorse military interventions in Syria and Libya too.

    I am still a lot more of conservative than Bunu.

    Great recession 2007 = Fed had gone into tightening before it

    Tech bubble 2000 = Fed had gone into tightening before it

    Bush Recession of 1990 = Fed had gone into tightening before it

    early 1980’s Recessions = Fed had gone into tightening before it

    Anyone see a pattern? Even in 2018 what was the Fed doing before the SHTF later in the year. They were doing quantative tighting before they reversed.

    Can anyone find evidence of a recession that occurred during easing? I don’t think so.

    We’re going higher.

    No significant repo pullbacks until at least after tax season when some anticipate another repo crisis and I doubt it even gets scaled back much after that.

  405. jason says:

    ‘it happens to have a low correlation with most stocks, which makes it useful in a diversified portfolio.”

    Actually, no.

    The track record on gold is abysmal as a “diversification” strategy.

    Diversification is good, yes, but diversify with other options, not gold.

    Not that you would have lost your ass with 3% gold in your portfolio, the point is you could have made more putting that 3% into something else rather than gold.

  406. jason says:

    Funny the NYT is not endorsing Biden. Do they know something we don’t know? I mean, we suspect he is senile, do they know it for a fact?

    Biden polls best against Trump, and the NYT certainly wants to win this election.

    All the Dems are damaged goods, granted. But Fauxcahontas is more damaged than most.

  407. PresidentPaul! says:

    I don’t buy gold as an “investment.” You buy it because there is 944 Trillion dollars in derivatives, god knows what is going on in China, an anemic global economy, corrupt politicians, and a world in desperate need to do away with the dollar as a reserve currency.

  408. PresidentPaul! says:

    NYTimes did endorse Biden.

    They want to shift support to Warren to sabotage Sanders. Warren is third place in Iowa.

  409. jason says:

    Maybe the NYT wants to get rid of Sanders, and by endorsing Warren hopes to sway some of the far left moonbats into abandoning him.
    Then the NYT can work to get rid of her later to leave the field clear for Biden.

    It is my first conspiracy theory of the morning.

  410. PresidentPaul! says:

    Warren is toxic I think. I can’t stand her personality.

  411. jason says:

    Oh, Geezus.

    Bunu makes the same point I did.

    Well, I will get over it.

    NYC agreed with me once, and I survived.

  412. PresidentPaul! says:

    They maintain their street cred endorsing Warren also.

    Keep in mind Warren endorsed Hillary in Iowa to try to stop Bernie.

  413. PresidentPaul! says:

    I’m referring to 2016 endorsement of Hillary.

  414. jason says:

    Buying gold as a hedge is just as stupid as buying it as an investment.

    Actually, stupider. As an investment, it still has residual value even after a loss. As a hedge, it has no value since in a real crisis you won’t be able to sell it at any price or even trade it for dog food.

  415. PresidentPaul! says:

    Buying gold is also ideological. I believe we need a currency backed entirely by gold. Even if it doesn’t go up in value it’s still good to buy.

  416. PresidentPaul! says:

  417. jason says:

    Even if it doesn’t go up in value it’s still good to buy.”

    LOL.

    Bunu has moved from the deadender principle in politics to the deadender principle in economics.

    I think NYC might want to get on this.

    Investments that are losers, but that SEND A MESSAGE.

    Corey endorsed a racist bigot for President on the R side.

    Here is the guy he says he might vote for on the Dem side.

    But remember, Corey is “pro-life” and he is very offended by Trump’s tweets.

    “Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg allegedly told a female employee,”kill it!” when she told him she was pregnant, according to the former Bloomberg executive’s 1997 lawsuit.

    The lawsuit filed in New York by Sekiko Sakai Garrison alleges Bloomberg followed up his first remark with another offensive comment, “Great! Number 16,” apparently referring to the number of pregnant employees on his payroll.

    Sakai Garrison also claimed Bloomberg pointed out another woman to her and remarked, “If you looked like that, I would do you in a second.”

  420. jason says:

    Of course, the Dems have “evolved” on abortion.

    Many of them would say “kill it” when the employee said she had a baby.

  421. jason says:

    The Never Trumpers somehow think there is somebody on the Dem side “morally superior” to Trump as a justification for electing a socialist who will trample all over every cause held dear by conservatives.

    Warren, Biden, and Sanders are all profoundly ethically challenged. Mayor Butt seems to have some ethics problems too.

    Don’t get me wrong. The Dems could run a socialist as pure as Mother Tereza and I still wouldn’t vote for a socialist.

    But the fact is there is no “better person” among the Dems, to use a term Corey used in 2016 when he said Hillary was a “better person” than Trump. Hillary was arguably the most ethically challenged party nominee ever, she wasn’t a “better person” than anybody in politics.

  422. jason says:

    With only me and Bunu here the HHR IQ average has dropped to about 100.

    That is calculated by adding my IQ of 140 and Bunu’s of 60 and dividing by 2.

    IMF Slashes Global GDP Forecast For 6th Consecutive Time

    The culprit this time is not China, but India, whose GDP forecast collapsed by a whopping 1.2% to 5.8%, handing the title of the world’s fastest growing economy back to China.

    First thing that comes to mind to me: maybe forcing this new cashless society experiment onto 1.2 billion people wasn’t such a good idea rather it was about power.

  425. jason says:

    Bunu, an America-hating terrorist loving Paulbot who thinks he is a conservative, endorsing Tulsi Gabbard, a flaming liberal who in 2016 said Bernie Sanders should be commander in chief.

    “Representative Tulsi Gabbard resigned from her post as vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee on Sunday, in order to support Bernie Sanders in his run for the party’s presidential nomination.

    Gabbard made the announcement on Sunday, appearing as a panel member on the NBC show Meet the Press.

    “I think it’s most important for us, as we look at our choices as to who our next commander-in-chief will be, is to recognize the necessity to have a commander in chief who has foresight, who exercises good judgment,” she said.

  426. jason says:

    Yes, doesn’t Bernie Sanders come to mind as an example of foresight and good judgment?

  427. SusyQue says:

    If you follow the order of the governer on disarming yourself you’ve already set precedent that he can order anything and you will abide by it. Civil disobedience is important and necessary in this situation. Never give up your rights. March on Virginia with your guns with me today! Don’t let the governer take away our constitutional rites!In Jesus Name.

  428. SusyQue says:

    2 Amendment confirms our God given right to have guns and to carry them openly in Jesus name.

    We need to start exercising those rights by carrying openly for all to see that we are not going to surrender the right to protect ourselves and others. We will protect America and our fellow 2 Amendment followers from invaders and criminals!

  429. Phil says:

    Removal from office according to Gallup –

    Yes – 46. No – 51

    This is remarkable give the media’s skewed reporting on the whole Trump impeachment. Expect Democrats to roll out more “new evidence” on a daily basis. It’s the Kavanaugh script all over again. Of course, that’s pretty obvious to anyone who has followed Democrats over the last three years. It’s how they roll. Not working as of yet.

  430. SusyQue says:

    Youtube and the Deep State has banned the live feed. More reducing our constitutional rights to be free and watch what we want.

  431. jason says:

    Politics makes strange bedfellows.

    Corey endorsing a racist bigot and saying he might be voting for the Mother of all Nanny Staters while claiming moral superiority and to being a conservative.

    Bunu, who claimed Romney and McCain were way too “liberal”, endorsing Tulsi Gabbard, a rabid left winger who supports socialized medicine, has a “F” rating from the NRA, and endorsed the Green New Deal that would destroy the economy.

  432. jason says:

    “and to carry them openly in Jesus name”

    Hmmmm, I think that was referring to swords during the Crusades…

  433. SusyQue says:

    Heavenly Father, God Almighty, I pray for every 2 Amendment American Patriot today to be safe and held in your arms while protecting our citizens from evil. Put your hands around our Patriots and hold them tightly with your blessings as we embark upon the darkness. Let the light shine on the love we hold for our brothers and sisters in this time of need. We are being invaded and our way of life is being destroyed by the invaders. In Jesus Christ name, I pray. Amen.

    “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” That is what the governar is afraid of.

    WE have to stand up for our rights. The unamerican governer wants to take our rights away.

  439. Cash Cow TM says:

    So when the senate votes to NOT convict Trump of impeachment charges, does Pelosi immediately re-impeach Trump again….

    Or does she have to wait until after Trump is reelected and then impeach him after that?

    How frequently can you impeach a president?
    Once a month?
    Once a term?

    Is trash.

    I bunch of 2nd amendment rights gun folks are heading to Richmond VA today…

    Hope this doesn’t turn out to be asshats vs. moonbats like Charlotte…

  442. jason says:

    If Trump is acquitted and re-elected, of course the Dems will try to impeach him again.

    I would bet all of Bunu’s gold on it.

  443. jason says:

    I would go too but there is a $500 fine in Richmond if your horse craps on the sidewalk.

  444. Wes says:

    Mein Gott! Bunu and SusyQue both checked in on this thread!

    What the hell!

  445. Wes says:

    To answer your question, Walt, the Constitution gives no limits on how often the House can impeach anyone, including the President. Theoretically the House can impeach Trump once a month till he leaves office, though I rather think the backlash from the American people would be quite significant for that kind of idiocy.

  446. jason says:

    Wes, the risk is they will start talking to each other and one thing will lead to another and then they will reproduce.

    Then we will have a real national emergency.

    gold has out performed stocks over the last 20 years … by a lot

    it is a perfectly legitimate investment in a diversified portfolio

    i would not own physical gold myself, and i only invest in gold through a s&p 500 mutual fund — it has 2 gold companies — and also through an international mutual fund — which has several canadian companies

    but so long as you realize it is ONE investment out of hopefully hundreds you are fine

  448. lisab says:

    sort of a standard investment portfolio to start with,
    that you can adjust given your personal situation

    20% wilshire 5000 or s&p 500 mutual fund for long term grown
    20% bonds
    20% blue chips
    20% international stocks
    20% divided up in real estate, treasuries, hobbies, art, coins,stamps,etc.

    most people invest the final 20% in their home

    Go get them SSQ! We need folks like you to stand up before they start slowly breaking down 2nd Amendment rights further…which is their real goal me thinks. Whittle away rights until it becomes the norm they want and folks don’t remember the original rights they had.

    I would join you but I’m in the midst of putting together an urgent meal plan for a Bitter so he can get his weight down to a manageable 125 to 130 pounds since LisaB recently informed us he was obese. Now I know why he wears all those sweaters. They’re great for full figured dudes.

    Bull dinky Jadon!

    Jesus was not against arming one self. The Bible is full of examples of protecting oneself and striking down enemies.

    I’m sure if Jesus were alive and walking amongst us in the flesh today, he would be carrying his AR-15 and wearing a MAGA hat.
