    Well, obviously three hundred million well spent. Let’s see what the next 300 mil does.

    Bernie had a crowd of over 11,000 in Colorado today.

    Elections have consequences.

    “A New York City man who’s now been arrested 139 times thanked Democrats for guaranteeing his immediate release despite repeatedly swiping hundreds of dollars from unsuspecting subway commuters since the state’s new bail reform law went into effect Jan. 1.

    Charles Barry, 56, has been arrested six times since the start of this year. He’s been released each time without having to post bail under New York’s new bail reform law since his alleged offenses were nonviolent, the New York Daily News reported. In the past, Barry’s served several stints in state prison and has a lengthy record, including six felonies, 87 misdemeanors and 21 missed court hearings, the newspaper reported, citing court records.

    “Bail reform, it’s lit!” Barry yelled to reporters Thursday outside the NYPD Transit District 1 headquarters in the Columbus Circle station before officers transported him to Manhattan Central Booking. “It’s the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!”

    Please tell me that’s from the Babylon Bee.

    Bloomberg on why farmers can’t work in information technology

    MB: “I can teach anyone how to be a farmer 1 dig a hole 2 put a seed in 3 put dirt on top 4 add water 5 up comes the corn”

    The skill 4information technology is completely different you need more grey matter

    Nate Silver:

    “But mostly it’s a recipe for a long, drawn-out nominating contest. In fact, our national primary forecast currently says that the single most likely outcome of the primary season is that no candidate gets a majority of pledged delegates.

  8. Wes says:

    3 is a legitimate news story. That’s what happens when Democrats win elections.

  9. PresidentPaul! says:

    Bernie had his hemorrhoid surgery, he’s ready to go.

  10. Bitterlaw says:

    On this Presidents Day, I am grateful that Trump is President and Hilary is not.

  11. Tina says:

    And not so surprising that the lawless Rs will defend the Roger stone raid and the bias of the foreperson,

    This, despite, Roger Stone, not even having a passport to flee the country and being elderly.

    But muh justice. Hi

  12. Tina says:

    Yup, no bias in the stone jury.

    “And that first juror was an only-in-D.C. character, a former Obama-era press secretary for the Office of Management and Budget whose husband still works at the Justice Department division that played a role in the Russia probe that ultimately snagged Stone,” Politico reported.

    “She even acknowledged having negative views of President Donald Trump, and said she had followed the media coverage of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.”

    Yet Judge Jackson “denied a request from Stone’s lawyers to strike the woman as a potential juror.”

  13. jason says:

    Stone’s real crime was being connected to Trump. Same as Flynn and Manafort. Not saying some of the charges are not legitimate, but the root is their connection to Trump. Anyone doubt Manafort would not be in jail had he not worked on the Trump campaign?

    On the other hand, you can say the same for Avenatti. Had he not taken on Stormy Daniels, he would still be ripping off his clients and extorting companies with impunity.

  14. jason says:

    Stone is in effect going to jail for having a big mouth and being a blowhard. He really did nothing illegal as far as colluding with Russians and all that BS, but lied about conversations that really didn’t reveal anything illegal either.

  15. jason says:

    “Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) was asked, point-blank, what she thought of a report in The Washington Post that accuses former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg of “making crass remarks, objectifying women and creating a sexist culture in the workplace.” Although Bloomberg has denied the allegations, Klobuchar said he needs to stop hiding behind massive ad buys and sit down on a TV show and answer questions.

    “I think he needs to come on a show here, like yours Dana,” Klobuchar told CNN’s Dana Bash. “He has not gone on any Sunday show since he announced. I got to answer questions, like I just did, on my record. And he has to do the same thing.”

  16. jason says:

    Dang, this is very unfortunate…it was working so well for Trump…

    “WASHINGTON — House Democrats, recovering from their failed push to remove President Donald Trump from office, are making a sharp pivot to talking about health care and economic issues, turning away from their investigations of the president as they focus on preserving their majority.

    Top Democrats said that oversight of the president will continue, and they plan in particular to press Attorney General William Barr over what they said are Trump’s efforts to compromise the independence of the Justice Department. But for now, at least, they have shelved the idea of subpoenaing Trump’s former national security adviser, who was a central figure in the president’s impeachment trial.

    In a series of private meetings over the past week and in written instructions she distributed to lawmakers Thursday before a recess this week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi made clear that the emphasis must shift.”

  17. Sheeple,Jr. says:

    BREAKING: A big and pleasant surprise!The VA ban on semi-automatic firearms goes DOWN in Committee. My guess is that it will come back with a few tweaks.

  18. lisab says:


    just because someone has been arrested 139 times is no reason to profile him

  19. Sheeple,Jr. says:

    Does anyone want to guess whom Dershowitz is alluding to? My guess is Bibi. And yours?

  20. lisab says:

    if you think about it … he is an entrepreneur

  21. Tina says:

    Bernie will chose Butt plug as veep.

    Feel the Butt Bern is the campaign motto.

  22. Sheeple,Jr. says:

    #22- Tina
    Clever. I like it!

  23. Hugh says:

    17. That may be their plan but all the networks covers was getting rid of Barr. The press is obsessed with attacking trump his appointees and those of us supporting him

  24. mRviTO says:

    Not Trump?

  25. mRviTO says:

    Klobuchar couldnt name the President of Mexico in a sit down interview with Telemundo… needs better prep people.

  26. Wes says:

    To be fair, Vito, when asked to name the leader of Pakistan (Pervez Musharraf), GWB said his name was “General.”

    Despite being a glorified dunce, Bush still became President.

  27. jason says:

    What Scumbag Romney lives for:

    “Republican Utah Sen. Mitt Romney was toasted at the Munich Security Conference Saturday as “probably the most courageous lawmaker we have in the United States.”

    “He was governor of Massachusetts early in his career. He was the person who organized the Salt Lake Winter Olympics — one of the most successful. He was the Republican nominee in 2012. He’s got a doctorate in law from Harvard … And he is probably the most courageous lawmaker we have in the United States,” the panel moderator said.

    The audience then applauded.”

  28. Wes says:

    Romney seeks adulation from people who hate him.

    Well, hey, maybe talk radio shouldn’t have pulled out the long knives for Orrin Hatch. Then Romney wouldn’t be up there.

  29. Big Joe says:

    We have a new flavor of the month!

    Big Joe

  30. Phil says:

    Someone please rescue us down here in Texas! We are drowning in Bloomberg commercials. Just saw four while watching a thirty minute comedy rerun. LOL Doesn’t matter when or what station. Big three networks, local stations, cable news shows, ESPN, movie channels…you name it.

    The eyes of Bloomberg are upon you

    All the livelong day

    The eyes of Bloomberg are upon you

    You cannot get away

    Do not think you can escape them

    At night or early in the morn

    The eyes of Bloomberg are upon you

    Til Gabriel blows his horn


  31. jason says:

    Hey Scumbag Mitt.

    Here is what would have taken courage. Thwarting your MSM friends.

    “Despite my differences with President Trump, like all my other elected Republican colleagues in the House and Senate, and even a few Democrats, I have concluded this impeachment process is a flawed partisan charade that completely subverts the intended purpose of the impeachment clause in the Constitution”

  32. jason says:

    Well, hey, maybe talk radio shouldn’t have pulled out the long knives for Orrin Hatch. Then Romney wouldn’t be up there.”

    Yeah, it backfired just like many other Mikey Maneuvers.

  33. jason says:

    I saw at least 8 Bloomberg ads during the Genesis golf tournament yesterday.

  34. Big Joe says:

    I’ll trade you the Bloomberg commercials for the Collins vs Loeffler commercials. This GOP primary looks like its gonna get pretty nasty.

    Big Joe

  35. jason says:

    Biden still the big favorite in SC according to Predictit

    Biden 54% (+1)
    Bernie 37%(-1)
    Steyer 7% (NC)
    Butt 4% (+1)

  36. jason says:

    I hope Biden wins SC and Bernie wins NV.

  37. Phil says:

    I hope Biden wins SC and Bernie wins NV

    Amen to that, brother.

    Bernie keeps some momentum for the Super Tuesday push and Biden stays viable and positioned to divide votes with Bloomberg on Super Tuesday.

    From there it’s on to a brokered convention where Bernie gets screwed….again. perfct for November.

  38. Phil says:

    Oh, and screw Romney.

  39. Tina says:

    Where are the jebots? They love brokered conventions.

  40. Tina says:

    Dumbergs comments on farming are so elitist and. Ignorant,

  41. jason says:

    Over at DKos, they have their own deadenders…

    “Recent Republican Michael Bloomberg cannot be allowed to buy the Democratic nomination. Myself and millions of other Progressive Democrats will stop donating and working to defeat Donald Trump if our only other choice is another billionaire Republican from NY. It is deeply troubling that the DNC appears to prefer Republican Michael Bloomberg over Senator Sanders who has voted with and campaigned for Democrats for decades. I will enthusiastically support with time and donations any of the other 5 viable Democratic candidates should one of them win the nomination. But I cannot and will not support a Republican billionaire buying the Democratic nomination. I strongly urge the DNC to support any and all of the 5 actual Democrats running over Republican Michael Bloomberg”

  42. jason says:

    I used to have an account to troll DKos.. but it expired somehow.

    In 2016 I was part of the “Bernie got screwed, I can’t support Hillary” crowd.

  43. PresidentPaul! says:

    Elon looks to destroy US utility companies specifically the peaker plants in addition to destroying detroit.

  44. PresidentPaul! says:

    Elon’s law

    Every new home in Cali will be REQUIRED to have its own solar energy starting this past jan 1

    Guy Benson
    In the 2012 cycle, the campaign of the incumbent president, Barack Obama, spent $483 million on paid media.

    In the 2020 cycle, Mike Bloomberg has spent $417 million on ads. So far. And he has yet to compete in a single primary, caucus or debate.

  46. John says:

    Bernie Sanders has a planned rally tonight at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington at 6pm…they’re expecting an overflow crowd (17,000) to accommodate the assortment of local socialists…

  47. Phil says:

    417 mil on just ads…so far. Let that sink in.

    Thing is after you spend a certain amount and have saturated the market, people become numb to it. That’s just a fact.

  48. jason says:

    I wonder how much Musk and Goldline are paying Bunu?

    Rumor is Musk is sending Bunu an autographed picture of a Tesla and Goldline will send Bunu a framed picture of Fort Knox.

  49. jason says:

    Heck, if Bernie offers a free joint to the homeless in SF he might bet 100,000.

  50. jason says:

    Huh, get not bet.

  51. jason says:

    Bunu is pushing Bernie here a lot too.

    Rumor is Bernie says he won’t tax the Tesla or the Fort Knox pictures.

    Nobody know who is paying Bunu yet for spreading alarmist garbage about Coronavirus yet, but HHR Investigations is looking into it.

  52. mRviTO says:

    Chris Murphy and other Democratic Senators held a secret meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif last week, a high-level source reports. FWIW, his office is not responding to repeated requests for comment.

  53. Michelle Obama vs the DNC buffet table says:

    Hoo boy – Little Mikey is going after the Bernie’s Brownshirts

  54. jason says:

    My goodness, is Nancy Pelosi going to impeach Murphy?

  55. jason says:

    Bloomberg 2004…

    “We are going to get George W. Bush re-elected as president of the United States! We are going to carry New York City and New York State. Everybody thinks I’m crazy, but I think we can do it.”

  56. jason says:

    Bloomberg 1990

    “If women wanted to be appreciated for their brains, they’d go to the library instead of to Bloomingdale’s.”

    Bloomberg 2015

    “I, for example, am not in favor, have never been in favor, of raising the minimum wage.”

    Mother Jones has a great collection of quotes.

  57. Wes says:

    Did we really have to go into Godwin’s Law territory in 55?
