    Well, you have to give Jensen credit, he sticks to his MO. Trying to set a narrative.

    As of today, Trump wins Texas by at least 15 points. This is a very anti-quarantine state and everyone sees what’s happening up north and how the Democrats have slowed down the aid to businesses, and basically forced us to close down.

    Yeah, Biden is not winning Texas, not in this lifetime anyway.

    WAPO poll says Americans favor the temporary immigration ban 65-35.

    Count me in the minority, I think it is shameless pandering.

    But whatever, it is pretty much moot since there are hardly any international flights or border crossings.

  5. VictrC says:

    Clue to how bias the poll is. – Do you think this election should be by mail – 53%

    LOL – Texans know that mail in ballot is code for Democrats want to steal an election

  6. jason says:

    I don’t think Trump wins by 15, although I don’t see Biden doing better than Hillary.

    Jason is Latino?!? He checked off Incan on his application. We had a quota to fill.

  8. VictrC says:

    Jason, I said if it were held today. There is a lot of pent up anger at Dems for the shut down, the rhetoric, the holding up of the PPP loans. I think he wins by 9-11% on Election Day, but today….he wins by more because of the anger

  9. Tgca says:

    Yes! Everyone from South America is Latino. Don’t give me any of that South American native indigenous BS. They were conquered by the Spaniards and all made Latino whether they liked it or not.

    If you’re outraged by the FBI’s tactics with Flynn, keep in mind that they do these things every day against drug dealers, gang members, and terrorists. Except those people are black, Hispanic, and Middle Eastern—not “lock ‘er up” lily white.

  13. Phil says:


    Trump wins Texas by 9 or 10. Same as last time.

    A couple of people in the previous thread were talking about Tesla and Elon Musk. I wonder if they agree with the following:

  23. Sheeple,Jr. says:

    Trump will hold his first political rally in some time in Arizona next week. It will soon be followed by one in Ohio.
    Buckle-up since Trump usually goes off script at these rallies.

    The more I think about the Flynn documents released last night, the more convinced I am that the top echelons of the Obama-appointed FBI and some DOJ officials(ie Sally Yates & maybe Rosenstein) did attempt a soft coup against the Trump Administration.
    I would like to know if FBI Director C. Wray knew about the cover up attempts.
    Unfortunately, Wray has always been more inclined to dismiss the wrongdoing at the FBI then reform the Agency.
    He should resign!

    “You never short TESLA, NEVER! LOL

    “What’s happening today is your classic short squeeze.”

    There are also a lot of shorts in the general markets. Short covering has contributed somewhat to the recent rally. It will be interesting to see what happens once the short covering ends.

    TSLA is a crazy stock. It shoots up one day and dives the next. Shorting any volatile stock like TSLA is a very risky proposition but TSLA seems to have a lot of very high profile shorts. If anyone insists on shorting TSLA, put options is the way to go. I would definitely NOT short the stock outright. Way too much risk.

    #25, What’s good, Dick-
    “On the other hand, does anyone on HHR ever lose money in the market? Seems that we have a lot of financial geniuses here.”

    A few losers. BP was highly touted here about 10 years ago. Then the unfortunate Gulf oil spill changed that.

    In 2009, there were some commentators saying that Pres. Obama was going to abolish the stock market so they took out all their money. This is while the market was near the lows from the Great Recession. They missed out on big gains over the next decade. They sold low and bought high (if they bought at all), not great.

    Some people have liked GOLD over the years. I’m not a Gold fan but perhaps it has a place in a diversified portfolio.

    But overall, we are the best source of financial advice, it’s not even close. Everyone else like CNBC and Fox Business are fighting for 2nd place.

    Disclaimer: I’m not a financial advisor, I just play one on HHR.

    Rock On.

    Does seem like we have a steady bunch here that doesn’t get panicked into selling on dips.

    I credit this to the advice I have been giving here for years, buy low, sell high.

    I haven’t lost any money because I haven’t sold anything out of my portfolio. Yeah, the portfolio is worth less than it was worth in February, but that is not my benchmark.

    I do have a small paper gain on the little I bought when the Dow was around 20k.

    I missed out on some great opportunities however, so I hardly consider myself a genius.

    A genius would have sold everything on February 12th (29551) and bought it back on March 23rd (18213).

  37. Tina says:

    The whole Fib interview of Flynn seems pointless.

    They had the illegally obtained transcript.

    He was doing his job as incoming NSA.

  38. Country Dick Montana says:

    On 1/8/2016 the S&P was 2139.56. Yesterday is closed at 2939.51. That is about a 9.6% annualized return. Not too shabby.

  39. jason says:


    “But, here’s the thing. We now know that Durham is investigating the leak of that conversation between Flynn and Kislyak, and we now know that – I don’t think he’s interviewed David Ignatius, the little twit from The Washington Post, who wrote the story – but the person who leaked the information about the Kislyak phone call because he had legal access to the unmasking of Flynn was a guy who ran what’s called the Office of Net Assessment in the Department of Defense, a guy named James Baker, not the James Baker who was the FBI Director [sic] [James Baker was the FBI’s General Counsel].

    The bottom line is this, it’s unfolding and what’s happening is, what Durham is actually doing is he’s painting a picture and not everyone of these acts is going to be a specific separate crime. But they are going to be, what’s called “overt acts in a conspiracy.” One to defraud the United States government. One to deny the civil rights of Trump and Flynn and Page and a bunch of other people.

    And I’ve been told within the last few days that they are also looking at obstruction of justice for anybody (inaudible) providing false information to the FISA Court, false information to the FBI. For example, it’s known that Brennan was desperately trying to get information to the bureau to open a counterintelligence investigation against the President while he was a candidate, while he was in the internecine period, and then while he was President. All of those are being looked at for obstruction of justice. So, that’s a pretty heavy plate.”

    Again, I will believe the indictments when I see them. But it sure sounds like there should be some.

  40. Pitchaboy says:

    Brennan is a weasel. He will start squealing soon. Cutthroat Comey is in trouble.

  41. Phil says:

    Yeah, that tape of Comey bragging about how he bypassed protocols in dispatching the two agents to the WH to interview Flynn is disgusting.

    What a pathetic POS.

  43. jason says:

    The worst mistake by far Trump ever made was appointing Sessions as AG. Had he not done that we would have had a completely different political landscape for the last 3 1/2 years.

    At the time I supported the appointment, Sessions was the only senator to give Trump early support and I thought he deserved it for that.

    But Sessions wanted to play Southern gentleman in a nest of vipers and got eaten alive. He should have resigned not recused himself from the Russia investigation, that gave the vipers all they wanted.

    Hindsight is 20/20. But had Trump chosen just about anybody but Sessions there would never have been a Mueller investigation and the truth about the coup plotters would have come out a lot sooner.

  44. jason says:

    It’s raining cats and dogs here. You poor bastards to the east of me are going to get hammered.

  45. jason says:

    Chris Dodd is in charge of selecting Biden’s running mate.

    Yep, the “waitress sandwich” Dodd.

  46. jason says:

    “Kennedy and Dodd were inebriated in a private room with two very young blonde dates. When their dates left the table to go to the bathroom, the senators requested waitress Carla Gaviglio come to the room.

    Gaviglio alleges Kennedy grabbed her and threw her on the table, scattering and breaking plates, cutlery, crystal, and candles. Kennedy then threw Gaviglio on Dodd and jumped on top of the two as he rubbed his genital area against hers, effectively creating a “waitress sandwich.”

    When another waitress entered the room, Kennedy jumped off leaving Gaviglio bruised and shaken as she ran out of the private dining room. Gaviglio’s story was corroborated by another waitress, the owner of La Brasserie, and two bus boys.

    “What I saw was Senator Kennedy on top of Carla, who was on top of Senator Dodd’s lap, and the tablecloth was sort of slid off the table ’cause the table was knocked over—not completely, but just on Senator Dodd’s lap a little bit, and of course the glasses and the candlesticks were totally spilled and everything. And right when I walked in, Senator Kelly jumped off…and he leaped up, composed himself and got up. And Carla jumped up and ran out of the room,” said waitress Betty Loh.”

  47. jason says:

    Biden is basically saying GFY to the metoo crowd.

  48. Wes says:

    Trump had a penchant for appointing members of Congress who had supported him to the Cabinet, Jason.

    Besides what happened when Sessions was AG, it cost Republicans at least two Senate seats:

    In the special to replace Sessions, ethically challenged Governor Bentley appointed Luther Strange to the Senate. This gave the loathsome Roy Moore an opening in the primary. Moore went on to achieve something no Alabama Republican had accomplished since 1992.

    In Montana, Ryan Zinke was gearing up for a challenge to Elizabeth Warren with a se x change, Jon Tester. Trump appointed Zinke to the Cabinet, and Republicans settled on Matt Rosendale. Rosendale wasn’t up to the race, starting off with an unforced error by ducking a planned debate with Tester. Following this embarrassment, Rosendale never found his footing in the race and let Montana continue to send Massachusetts’ third Senator to Washington.

    Now with Mike Pompeo (R-KS) as SoS and Kris Kobach the possible frontrunner for the Senate nomination in the Sunflower State, Trump’s penchant for appointing friendly members of Congress to the Cabinet could potentially cost Republicans yet another crucial Senate seat.

  49. Country Dick Montana says:

    The #Metoo crowd doesn’t care. Power is all that matters.

  50. Wes says:

    It’s just too bad Ted the Vile Scumbag Kennedy was never a target of any kind of #MeToo movement.

    I actually used to know a Democrat who had the audacity to defend Kennedy by saying Democrats are not “moral crusaders.”

    In other words, the Dems can commit sexual assault and DUI manslaughter because they supposedly don’t proclaim self-righteousness. I guess this guy missed the whole “war on women” meme from Obama’s 2012 re-election bid.

  51. Wes says:

    A new poll says Biden leads Trump 50-42 in NH . Trump has a 42-58 negative approval rating while Governor Sununu has a whopping 70% approval rating. This may be why Sununu passed on the Senate race. He would probably be a solid recruit to challenge Hassan in 2022 if Trump falls in November.

  52. DW says:

    54 – earlier polls of NH actually had Trump leading. This new one is just one poll. I want to wait for one of the NH regulars to poll it.

  53. Country Dick Montana says:

    I have been giving some thought as to what happens if Trump loses, and Dems gain both the Senate and the House:

    1. What would be the immediate changes and the consequences of those changes?

    2. Would conservatives have their own form of #RESIST and what would it look like? For me,I am already past retirement age and work for the pleasure of it and for the knowledge that I provided a service. Guys like me keep your lights on and keep you warm in the winter. I would simply stop going to work on January 20, 2021.

    3. Once the changes the Dems make go into effect, could we ever go back?

  54. Wes says:

    I agree more polls are needed for confirmation, DW. Still, NH has become very similar to VT recently, and Trump continued the GOP string of presidential losses there against Hillary. I have a hard time seeing how Trump carries the state this time, though an eight-point loss may be overstated.

    Biden is the kind of Democrat the Granite State has cottoned to over the last few decades, so I can believe the poll’s rankings even if I’m dubious on the margin.

  55. DW says:

    Biden: Chris Dodd is, a, uh, a great colleague–er, was a great senator and, uh, this, a, allegation about his, uh, his uh, behavior with Teddy Roosevelt, I mean, uh, you know, Ted Kennedy is completely un–unfounded. In fact, I spoke with Ted the uh, next day and he joked about be being late to the party.

  56. jason says:

    Yep, if Sessions had remained in the senate and Trump had not taken Zinke out the Rs would have 2 more senate seats, and we would have been rid of another loathsome ass, Tester.

    Still, I blame the deadenders for Moore, there was nothing wrong with Luther Strange. To be fair to Trump, he would not have thought in a million years that taking Sessions out of the senate would cost the seat. Zinke was another matter though, that was a mistake.

  57. Phil says:

    If the poll shows the Republican governor at 70% it is probably a pretty valid poll.

  58. Phil says:

    I will have a margarita tonight for all of you blue state perpetual prisoners. Cheers

    Gee, you would have think the venthoarder would have stopped service, or at a minimum done the disinfecting weeks ago?

    This is very significant for NYC. The MTA will stop subway train service between 1 and 5aET in order to disinfect the system, Gov. Cuomo announced Thursday morning, adding they will provide free vehicle transportation for essential workers during this time.

  60. Wes says:

    All things being equal, Strange would have beaten Moore, Jason. Unfortunately Strange was investigating Bentley’s ethical problems when Bentley offered him the appointment.

    This gave Moore an opening by linking Strange to Bentley and alleging a corrupt deal—with optical justification. Of course AL Republicans had no clue about Moore’s salacious past even if they didn’t like him personally. Strange had tried to pitch the allegations to the local media—who conveniently didn’t bite till Moore became the nominee.

    Moore was stupid, sanctimonious, and pompous enough to assume Republicans, now fully aware of his past, would look past his disastrous 2017 candidacy and history of theocratic showboating in the primaries this year.

    Well, knowing his history, they were smart enough to reject him and, at 7% on Primary Day, keep him well away from the teens.

  61. jason says:

    Once the changes the Dems make go into effect, could we ever go back?”


    It would be a different country.

    Just the voting changes would doom any “comeback”…the Dems will have open borders and illegals will either be given citizenship or the right to vote, the whole country will be a “sanctuary”. They will probably institute online “voting” and fraud will be rampant. They will control the media and the Internet so that any dissent will not be allowed. If you think it is bad now that Facebook shuts down calls for peaceful protests against the shutdown and You Tube cuts off real doctors from presenting alternate research results you have not seen anything yet. That will be the new norm, the MSM will decide what you should see or not see.

    As soon as they flip SCOTUS they will be free to legislate from the bench even more than today, they won’t even need Congress.

    The US will rapidly become even more of a nanny state than it is now, and basically a one party state. It will be a society that rewards those that don’t want to work, and punishes those who do. Under the guise of “equality” you will do away with merit.

    Like you, I can probably retire and survive. I just feel bad for my kids, I didn’t raise them to live under socialism but maybe I should have. Unfortunately, if you look at the polling, this type of society is what a majority of young people want, they want the government to attend to all their needs.

    If Trump wins, all this will be delayed ten or fifteen years, but it won’t be stopped. I am afraid this is the future one way or the other because our schools are no longer teaching what is needed to promote capitalism vs. socialism.

  62. Country Dick Montana says:

    Yep, my kids. That is the saddest part.

  63. Sheeple,Jr. says:

    The just released Gallup Poll has The Donald’s approval/disapproval rating at +2, 49%/47%,respectively.H/T: 538 Polls)

  64. Phil says:

    Yes, Trump’s reelection only delays the inevitable.

    Ten years down the road and the left will be in COMPLETE control. They already own the media and the education system. Throw in the open borders and citizenship (the right to vote) and it’s over….forever. Done deal.

    Trump’s election gave us a slight reprieve. That’s all. The deck is stacked.

  65. Phil says:

    …and yeah, sad for our kids.

  66. Country Dick Montana says:

    So how do we stop it?

  67. NYCmike says:

    “So how do we stop it?”

    -There are some who have advocated different constitutional approaches, but they are mocked by “very smart people” like jason and Wes.

  68. Robbie says:

    Sometimes, I wonder if Fauci wakes up in the morning and asks himself, “How can I ruin the mental health of America today?”. At some point yesterday, he said we may not be able to have any sports in 2020. Get over yourself, Fauci. It’s bad enough his lockdown strategy has sent unemployment to 20%. Now, he wants to take away any enjoyment we might have in this misery.

    And by the way, this “watch out for the second wave” stuff is just an attempt to ensure the lockdowns can never really fully end. Plenty of politicians and doctors have seen the public is surprisingly willing to surrender Constitutional rights for a bit of false security. They don’t want to lose the power they’ve gained in the last seven weeks.

    Point to one example of a leader or groups of leaders who surrendered emergency powers given to them in a moment of crisis. If there’s a bad flu season in 2021 or 2022, Fauci and others like him will be out there encouraging partial lockdowns.

  69. Sheeple,Jr. says:

    Here is the link to the new Gallup Poll showing Trump at 49% Job Approval:

  70. jason says:

    I don’t see how it could be stopped unless we take back the whole educational system from the liberal intelligentsia.

    95% of college professors are socialists.

    The MSM is 95% socialist.

    Even with all the judges Trump appointed, the courts are still mostly liberal, and would be more so with Biden.

    If Trump wins, and manages to tilt SCOTUS to 6-3 conservative, flip a few more appeals courts, and have a chance to lift more Americans out of poverty, the creeping nanny state might be slowed down somewhat.

  71. DW says:

    Whoops! Gallup presidential approval:

    1500 adults

    April 14-28


    They didn’t get the memo from PPP and the others that the race is over.

  72. jason says:

    here are some who have advocated different constitutional approaches,”


    Like those advocated by constitutional “expert” and blowhard Mark Levin, right?


  73. jason says:

    Italy is a big “wow” today.

    +1872 new cases (lowest since March 10th) and +268 deaths (2nd lowest since March 14th).

  74. jason says:

    If Trump wins and has another 4 years to shape the courts somewhat I think it will push back the complete nanny state by maybe 15 years.

    At this point, I would take that.

  75. jason says:

    If there’s a bad flu season in 2021 or 2022, Fauci and others like him will be out there encouraging partial lockdowns.”

    So what? As Teddy Kennedy told Mary Joe when she told him she was pregnant, let’s cross that bridge when we get to it.

    I find no fault with Fauci’s medical reasoning. It is up to the politicians to weigh it against other factors.

    I think if Trump hadn’t listened to Fauci and ordered the shutdown, he would be toast in November. IF listening to Fauci makes him toast in November anyway, ok but not listening would have been a sure thing.

    Trump would not have survived half a million deaths even if he had saved 20 million jobs.

  76. Wes says:

    Considering Mikey advocated the doomed Senate candidacies of such Deadenders as Christine O’Donnell and Dick the Misogynist Bastard Mourdock, I can honestly say I would never adopt his “different approach”—i e, helping Democrats win Senate seats.

  77. NYCmike says:


    -Exactly the point.

    There are too many people who are unwilling to actually debate something because of who (in this case, Levin, but he is only one of many) is at the forefront of it.

    Of course, they are responding to media narratives about “far-right extremists” and the more-subtle attempts by “Republicans” like William Kristol, George Conway, Karl Rove etc etc to demonize any approach which takes away power from D.C.

    – All fair points. My aggravation with Fauci has more to do with his recent statements. I think he needs to do far less public speaking right now. People want optimism, not his constant doom.

    As for the lockdowns, my complaint is that we had them. I thought, initially, they were appropriate. I naively thought they would work within tow or three weeks. Regardless, my problem with them is they have clearly gone on too long and governors seem totally unwilling to give up the emergency powers they used to start them.

    I am against Levin’s asinine ideas because there is no public support for “convention of the states” and crap like that even if they were legally sound which they are not. If there was, we wouldn’t need them, it’s catch 22.

    I think Levin is a moron, but I would oppose it even if it was led by my hero Dr. Fauci.

    Tiger vs Michelson match latter part of May. Look for Fauci to show up on the first tee just as Tiger begins his backswing to scream at him that he is endangering America.

    Walt survived the black hole of Calcutta, he won’t have trouble in the big house in WV.

    I can see what happened this morning at Walt’s house.

    Walt: I am doing taxes today.

    Walt’s wife: better get me at least a $2k refund if you are going to skip chores.
