    1. jason says:

      The exalted number one.

    2. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      1st

    3. jason says:

      Liar pants on fire.

    4. jason says:

      Seems like we’ve plateaued at about 20,000 cases a day after seeing a slow, but steady decline from 30,000 or so cases a day in April. Much of the persistence around 20,000 has come from Illinois and California.”

      20k a day means the active cases are on the decline. And 20k cases a day, with a declining mortality rate, trends pretty close to the IHME curve.

      I am more worried about the 1500 cases in TX (down from 1900 yesterday) and 1300 in FL (up from 600 yesterday), hopefully not a bad trend. In any case the death numbers in both states is low.

    5. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The polls indicate it will be a very close race. Given all that has happened, its surprising Trump is doing this well. The Democrats now have the burden of a candidate who clearly is in mental decline. I would rate Trump a slight favorite.

    6. jason says:

      I am going to send McSally a check, should be good for a point or two in the polls.

    7. Nancy Phucking Pelosi says:

      I’M FIRST, YOU LIARS!

    8. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      From the last thread — Lisab comment about Robbie:

      “however, it is true i thought you were gay
      what can i say, you have a certain quality
      not that there is anything wrong with that”

      Ok, I will inquire. What is that “certain quality” you see in Robbie? Bogo Pogo is not exactly Key West.

    9. Chester says:

      Always knew Mattis was a TRAITOR. And Esper too. What is up with these Antifa Sec. of Defense traitors.

      FIRE ESPER. Root out all ANTIFA in the government

      Destroy the DEEP STATE.
      Destroy ANTIFA
      Destroy BLM

    10. lisab says:

      What is that “certain quality” you see in Robbie?
      —————————

      that he couldn’t get laid in a nursing home if his semen was pure hydroxychloroquine

    11. jason says:

      Chester is definitely not from the top of the troll gene pool.

      Not his fault.

    12. jason says:

      Chester is so transparent it is pitiful.

      Write a bunch of trash on a conservative site, and then invite others to witness how conservatives are extremists and racists.

      Zzzzzz…….

    13. NYCmike says:

      Mark Kelly (D) 50%
      Martha McSally (R-inc) 37%

      -Oh boy…..I’ll assume from what all the “smart” people on HHR say that “Chemtrail” Ward would get like 25%………hopefully, Martha can ask KellyAnne Conway to come out to the desert to help her out.

    14. Robbie says:

      – According to Phil, Abbott ordered the testing of all prisons. Walker County reported more than 700 cases on Monday and Tuesday. That’s more than they’d had since early March. Why? They tested the entire prison.

    15. jason says:

      I’ll assume from what all the “smart” people on HHR say that “Chemtrail” Ward would get like 25%”

      LOL

      Translation: because the best candidate the Rs can field is behind in the polls, they should have nominated Chemtrail Deadender Ward, because although she would certainly lose, it would SEND A MESSAGE.

      You can’t make this sh-t up.

    16. Country Dick Montana says:

      McSally will not beat Mr. Gabby Giffords. He has the women’s vote locked up. McSally and Cory Gardner in CO are both gone. Would like to see some polling on Collins in ME.

    17. jason says:

      Mr. Gabby Giffords is a light weight media creation. I wouldn’t give up on McSally just yet.

    18. jason says:

      I’ll assume from what all the “smart” people on HHR say that “Chemtrail” Ward would get like 25%”

      Mikey Maneuver alert!

    19. NYCmike says:

      “Translation: because the best candidate the Rs can field is behind in the polls, they should have nominated Chemtrail Deadender Ward, because although she would certainly lose, it would SEND A MESSAGE.”

      -That’s the wrong translation.

    20. Robbie says:

      I guess if Arizona is a wipeout, Chemtrail will lose her job as leader of the state GOP.

    21. Country Dick Montana says:

      https://www.foxnews.com/politics/virginia-gov-northam-to-order-removal-robert-e-lee-statue-richmond

      I have seen Monument Avenue in Richmond, a beautiful street. Take all of the statues down, erase history if that is what you want. Young black men will continue to kill young black men over nothing. What will their excuse be then?

    22. jason says:

      I guess if Arizona is a wipeout, Chemtrail will lose her job as leader of the state GOP.”

      So there IS a silver lining…

    23. NYCmike says:

      “McSally and Cory Gardner in CO are both gone.”

      -I don’t agree with this.

      Gardner still has a shot.

      McSally, can still win, but she has to figure out how to be more believable as a candidate. Her “air force pilot” schtick is just not very authentic.

    24. jason says:

      Something is seriously wrong with AZ GOP if Chemtrail Ward is their leader.

    25. NYCmike says:

      “I guess if Arizona is a wipeout, Chemtrail will lose her job as leader of the state GOP.”

      -That’s fine with me.

    26. Phil says:

      They don’t need to give an excuse. Blacks will continue to gun down other blacks and the media will continue to ignore it.

      Instead the media will continue to focus on the “genocide” of black men by the oppressive white cops. Yeah, Genocide.

      See how this works?

    27. jason says:

      May 27 deaths 1535
      May 27 cases 20546

      June 3 deaths 1083
      June 3 cases 20578

      IHME death projection June 3

      IHME Model

      Projected Actual
      June 1 910 730 -180
      June 2 892 1134 +242
      June 3 873 1083 +210

    28. Phil says:

      In Texas another 100 positive cases straggled in from the prison units in Walker and Jones County.

      According to the local paper here in Huntsville only a handful of the positive numbers reported from Walker County over the last three days were from outside the prison. The prison unit here was tested all at once and now they are getting the results.

    29. jason says:

      Her “air force pilot” schtick is just not very authentic.”

      Supposedly NYC wants McSally to win, but yet he is willing to smear her with stupid lies.

      Not authentic? Really? You have to be really stupid to say something that can be shown to be a lie in 30 seconds on Google.

      “McSally served in the United States Air Force from 1988 to 2010 and became the first U.S. woman to fly in combat and the first woman to command a fighter squadron.”

      “McSally earned her USAF pilot’s wings in 1991 after completing Undergraduate Pilot Training at Williams Air Force Base east of Phoenix. Following graduation, she was assigned to Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas, as a First Assignment Instructor Pilot in the T-37 trainer. McSally went on to Lead-in Fighter Training in 1993.[10]

      McSally then completed Replacement Training Unit for the A-10 Thunderbolt II at Davis–Monthan Air Force Base and was assigned to an operational A-10 squadron that deployed to Kuwait in January 1995.[10][11] During this deployment, she flew combat patrol over Iraq in support of Operation Southern Watch, enforcing the no-fly zone over southern Iraq and becoming “the first female U.S. fighter pilot to fly in combat and the first woman to command a fighter squadron.”

    30. Phil says:

      Cases nationally have plateaued pretty much. That is in absolute numbers. Keep in mind testing has really ramped up so the infection rate is actually down considerably. For example, we came in at very close to half a million tests today – a one day record.

    31. Robbie says:

      I still believe Trump can win, but I also think he needs to treat the next five months as he treated the last three weeks of the 2016 campaign. He was a much more disciplined candidate (not perfect) and it paid off. I know message discipline is not his thing, but he ought to try it.

    32. NYCmike says:

      jason,

      I know that she is a pilot, you A-Hole.

      The issue is her campaign demeanor, when she says “When I was flying my fighter jet……” she sounds like a professional politician who happened to fly airplanes, as opposed to someone like Crenshaw who only mentions his service when the question is aimed in that direction.

      Have you listened to many of her interviews?

      She is a candidate that people are drawn to?

    33. Phil says:

      Robbie,

      Since you are a proponent like me of opening things the hell up, I thought I would share.

      Governor Abbott announces we will be going to Phase III here in Texas.

      No more occupancy limits for religious services, child care services, youth camps, or recreational sports programs for youths and adults.

      50% occupancy for amusement parks

      50% occupancy for professional, collegiate, or similar sporting events. THIS ONE IS MY FAVORITE.

      75% occupancy for restaurants

      Just some of the guidelines. Lots more I’m not listing.

      Maybe this will spread to other states.

    34. jason says:

      jason,

      I know that she is a pilot, you A-Hole.”

      Facts not in evidence. You even put Air Force pilot in quotes.

      “Her “air force pilot” schtick is just not very authentic.”

      Stop lying.

    35. Phil says:

      I would add that indoor dining at 75% capacity does not start for another week.

    36. Tina says:

      Per abc, Floyd had the coronavirus.

    37. NYCmike says:

      I put it in quotes because she actually says that in the interviews I have listened to, repeatedly in fact.

      I hope she wins, but there seems to be a reluctance among Arizona voters to support her more than the Democratic candidates she has run against.

    38. Country Dick Montana says:

      Has McSally said anything that be considered negative about Trump? According to the Fox poll, 13% of Trump supporters are crossing over to vote for Mr. gabby Giffords.

    39. Tina says:

      That autopsy is disgusting by the way. He had facial injuries, suggesting the cops beat him in the back of the police car.

    40. jason says:

      Let’s ignore this and keep PA shutdown!

      https://datawrapper.dwcdn.net/eKrKL/18/

    41. Phil says:

      Floyd had the virus?

      Well then, I’m sure the blue state governor of Minnesota will be adding one more to the corona death count. Another death by corona virus.

    42. jason says:

      I hope she wins,”

      Zzzzzz…. you are pathological liar.

      You want her to lose because then you could say “they should have run a deadender”.

    43. Phil says:

      Jason, I’m sure Governor Wolf would have today signed an executive order opening up the entire state if only he had the time. I understand he was busy today marching with protestors and taking a knee. Maybe tomorrow.

    44. jason says:

      I put it in quotes because she actually says that in the interviews I have listened to, repeatedly in fact.”

      Wow, the first woman jet fighter pilot to fly in combat and command a fighter squadron mentioned it in an interview?

      Horrors!

      Bring in Chemtrail Ward!

    45. NYCmike says:

      jason,

      Don’t be unhinged.

      McSally is my choice for Senator, just like I supported her against Sinema.

      BUT, she has a short supply of charisma that I hope can be overcome.

      I noticed you ignored my 2 questions…..

      Have you listened to many of her interviews?

      She is a candidate that people are drawn to?

    46. PresidentPaul! says:

      Trump keeps getting these bums in his administration that turn face and become Hillary supporters.

      Now “Mad Dog” Mattis is doing it trying to help the deadbeats and looters.

    47. NYCmike says:

      “Wow, the first woman jet fighter pilot to fly in combat and command a fighter squadron mentioned it in an interview?”

      -Yup, I guess jason hasn’t listened to the interviews of McSally that I have heard.

    48. Hugh says:

      40. Well that’s ridiculous

    49. NYCmike says:

      “Has McSally said anything that be considered negative about Trump? According to the Fox poll, 13% of Trump supporters are crossing over to vote for Mr. gabby Giffords.”

      -Not that I have heard.

      Maybe ask jason……if he listened to any of her interviews….

      Robbie,

      Maybe this will spread to other states.

      – I’m jealous. We’re at 1/3 occupancy. All youth sports cancelled. Pools not open. It’s a travesty.

    51. Robbie says:

      When someone like McSally possibly loses two Senate races in two years in a state that’s been reliably Republican for a long, long time, maybe it just means she’s not a particularly good candidate.

    52. Tina says:

      trump is actually performing better in bucks county, pennsylvania, than he is statewide in the gop primary so far

      he’s at 94.48% there compared to 94.36% statewide

      early reports showed trump below 90% there

      bucks is an important swing county that clinton won by a point in 2016

    53. Phil says:

      Robbie, I have looked at the Kentucky case and death numbers. Based on that, how in the hell can the governor possibly justify opening up that slowly? Surely Republican legislators (even though the legislature isn’t in session) must be screaming bloody murder along with the overall conservative constituency of that state. How in the world does he justify what he is doing?

    54. Tina says:

      Can the ky legislatures return?

      Impeach him?

      What about suing in court?

    55. Cash Cow TM says:

      Random demonstration/riot thoughts:
      *****************************************
      Good:
      –caught the white guy who set fire to the old Nashville(?) city hall
      –caught the two black lawyers for Molotov cocktailing police cars
      –caught the white “joker” guy in NYC for setting police car on fire
      –Apple is apparently tracking the location of stolen phones (but WHY did they announce that they are?)

      –NYC went to earlier curfew
      –NYC removed 6000 trash cans (so Antifa could not set them on fire)
      –Washington DC hovered helicopters over the protestors/rioters to beat them with downdrafts and disrupt them

      BAD:
      –not heard of any investigation yet on who was responsible for delivering pallets of bricks in various cities when protestors were going to be marching (and rioting was bound to occur)…

      –not heard any reason why fire trucks were not brought out to hose down the people in the streets long after the curfew went into effect.

      –FASCINATING that so many young males HAVE to bring with them a BIG BACKPACK when they go to a “peaceful” protest march. Do you think they MIGHT BE carrying fireworks, incendiary devices, tools of destruction, etc.?
      *******************************************
      DISAPPOINTED category:

      1–disappointed that MSM continues to report that Trump used tear gas on protestors so he could do his photo op at the church. Officials said no tear gas was used, but MSM is still saying it was tear gas.

      2–for ANY demonstration, experience SHOWS that various nefarious nut bags show up to blend in with the peaceful protestors and when opportunity arises they throw bricks, set fires, spray paint graffiti, attack police, innocent shop keepers, etc.

      Recall the nut case who shot and killed a whole bunch of police officers during a BLM march in Texas (Dallas?)…G7 protests in Seattle(?) a few years back, Trump inauguration in D.C…the list goes on and on and on.

      When a protest / march is held over some travesty or injustice somewhere you have a majority of young people especially (emotional) women.
      For every 1000 of the above you can expect at least 100 Antifa, anarchists and other nut jobs who see opportunity to caused trouble to show up, and another 100 who see a possibility to loot if things go south and violence erupts. These latter two types do not give a hoot about what is being protested–they have their own agenda.

      The PEACEFUL protestors do not seem to have a clue that their crowd is being used by others as a shield to do criminal and harmful acts. Are the peaceful protestors that CLUELESS that they are being used as tools of evil doers?

      ######################################

      Apparently, the riots believe Black Lives Matter, but Blue lives apparently don’t..and some who die as a result of their “peaceful” march turn out to be Black policemen, Black store owners, etc…

      Apparently, the peaceful protestors abhor violence–want to see VIOLENCE ended!, but violence INEVITABLY blossoms out of their intended peaceful march of protest.

      Apparently, the protestors (rightfully) stand strong for protecting the constitutions rights of people apprehended by the police, but 99% turn their heads or scurry away when they see constitutionally protected property rights being trashed BY THOSE IN THIER MIDST and buildings, stores, cars damaged, defaced and destroyed, innocent people attacked…

      Apparently, some of the protestors want to defund and do away with the police and carry signs saying just that, But who do those sign clutchers think they would turn to (other than the police in their ‘no more police’ utopia scenario) when their life or property were under attack by other people?

      Apparently, the peaceful protestors believe “silence is violence” and if other police officers see mistreatment of someone by another police officer they are just as guilty as the police officer doing the illegal harm to the arrested person–yet are the thousands of peaceful protestors DOING SOMETHING to prevent or just standing by silently (or scurrying away) when some in their crowd of demonstrators are breaking store windows, setting fires, looting, throwing Molotov cocktails, shooting roman candles at police, beating down innocent shop owners or hapless and helpless bystanders? By their logic, doesn’t their failure to act to prevent these crimes make them COMPLICIT?

      Apparently, the peaceful protestors detest Black people being treated unfairly by the police and scream “unfair discrimination” by the police in treating Blacks they arrest in Minneapolis or wherever badly, but the protestors think it is NOT unfair AT ALL and all right to DISCIRIMINATE and treat ALL police ANYWHERE badly and throw bricks, urine filled bottles, etc. at any and all police.

      >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      AND FINALLY…if you have umpteen hours to demonstrate peacefully BEFORE an established curfew goes into effect…WHY DO YOU CONTINUE TO STAND IN THE STREET 20 FEET AWAY FROM THE LINE OF POLICE AFTER CURFEW GOES INTO EFFECT?

      Are you simply there after that hour to entice a confrontation? And possible some degree of violence–which you SAY you ABHOR?

      &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
      Even sheep and chickens make more sense to this cow than these “peaceful protestors”.

    56. Robbie says:

      Phil and Tina

      The Republican legislature has been MIA. I wrote all 38 Republican state senators and got just four nondescript replies. One of my good friends is related to the Speaker of the House, but he hasn’t said a word publicly even though he tells anyone who will listen in private how frustrated he is.

      Some members of the legislature have put out tweets encouraging Beshear to speed up, but the leadership hasn’t held any press conferences or anything like that. They all popped their heads up to condemn the hanging of Beshear in effigy, but they quickly went back into their spider holes afterwards.

      It’s been truly disheartening. Unemployment is over 40% in the state and Beshear has bungled unemployment payments, but none of them seem to care. Clearly, they must fear Beshear’s approval rating. I don’t know why, though. He’s a total wuss.

      The legislature can’t return until January 2021, but they could sue. They won’t, though. The AG Daniel Cameron has nibbled at Beshear with lawsuits about church services, but that doesn’t put people back to work. When Beshear was AG, he sued Bevin eight days a week. Cameron is positioning himself to be McConnell’s heir so he doesn’t want to get his fingers dirty I suppose.

      The legislature could impeach Beshear when they return. They have super majorities in both chambers and could remove him and his Lt. gov in party line votes, but they won’t do it. Republicans hold every statewide office but the governorship, yet Beshear has absolutely steamrolled them. He’s using an indefinite emergency proclamation to govern every aspect of life in the state and no one seems to care.

      Kentucky allows for a very strong governor and Beshear is taking full advantage of it.

      75. If that is a nationwide GE, those are not bad numbers. Lots of bad stuff going on and CA, NY, MA and the rest of the Hillary states will have a lot of unnecessary extra votes for Biden. As long as Trump wins by 1 in the close states who cares.

    65. Robbie says:

      I would take the polls from the last week as a sign that April and May weren’t good months for Trump and that incumbents get blamed, rightly or wrongly, for all the things that go wrong during their tenure. None of this means he’s going to lose, but they ought to serve as a warning sign that time’s a wasting and the extraneous stuff needs to stop. He was at his best in the last three weeks of 2016 when he stuck to his message and mostly, not always, turned his Twitter feed over to staff. Five months is plenty of time to turn things around.

    66. Scooterboy says:

      The internals in a lot of these polls are just wacky.
      For instance in the Daily Kos poll above.

      Biden fav/unfav : -20
      Trump fav/unfav: -12

      So Trump is more favorable, up with Indies, but down 3?

      I guess it’s a possibility, but doesn’t make much sense to me.

    67. Hugh says:

      I happen to agree with Robbie. Trump needs more discipline. However he cannot stop all tweeting or he’s doomed. It’s difficult because whatever he does the press will lie and attack him. However the democrats and press always overplay their hand. If I were trump I’d offer the help and let the liberal governors and mayor solve their own problem. Kissing the you know what’s of rioters and looters will grow old. It’s a long time until the election.

    70. Tgca says:

      This is only anecdotal but last night one of my lefty CA friends totally shocked me. He was a proud liberal Dem for decades and supported all the typical Boxer, Fienstein, Pelosi, both Clinton’s, Obama, etc. Well, he informed me he officially switched and registered as a GOP dude last year. He realized that the Dem party of today has no place for him.

      After all these years of trying and failing to reason with him and then these newcomers like AOC, Ilan, et. al. pull it off rather easily. I feel so defeated that they accomplished what I could not.

      Now before anyone reads too much into this, I guess his switch is cancelled out by Kristol, an avid Dem supporter now who is slowly coming out of the closet. Look for Kristol to be grand marshal of a gay pride parade somewhere near you later this month.

      People really change! Who knew?

    71. Robbie says:

    73. janz says:

      Yesterday a flyer on “Rules” was created and distributed by a liberal councilwoman in West Hollywood. The title was
      “Rules for Whites.” Included in this list was that no white could say “all lives matter,” as it would be insulting to the BLM people. No whites could chant, use a microphone to give their opinions…basically all a white person was approved to do was stand back and be quiet – kind of a “back of the bus” theme being racially played, except now on another race of people.

    74. Robbie says:

      curtmills
      @CurtMills
      I am told Esper could legitimately go down— as soon as today

      But Trump is highly impulsive and fires and unfires in his mind all the time — see the Sessions and Tillerson cases, they dragged on

      If it comes to pass, Cotton is in the mix: and might actually take it

      – This would be absolutely nuts. First, firing Esper five months before election day would only further the notion Trump’s administration is chaotic. That’s the last thing he needs right now.

      Second, why in the world would Cotton give up a safe Senate seat, he’s running unopposed this year, for a job he’ll probably be out of in seven months?

      Hopefully, none of this comes to pass.

      – I mentioned this yesterday. The party was never more united in 2018 than during the Kavanaugh hearings. Pick Amy Comey Barrett or someone like her and the party will unify behind Trump at just the right time.

      I don’t think Thomas wants to retire, though.

      Right, we want Trump to unilaterally disarm.

      No thanks.

    77. Country Dick Montana says:

      Personally, I think Trump should quietly walk back the whole military thing. We are not a banana republic. While the Generals and Civilian military authorities are creatures of Washington (and enjoy the power and perks that come with it), I frankly think that Trump would lose the rank and file military vote as they do not want to be in a position of killing Americans. The military does a great job of taking people from diverse backgrounds and turning them into a cohesive team of trained killers. They will not shoot someone that looks like their brother, sister, mother grandmother, etc. They also won’t shoot someone who looks like a relative of one of their buddies.

      It is also for that reason that Democrats will never be able to use the military to control the domestic population.

    78. janz says:

      LA Country to cut 150 million from LAPD, giving it to black communities. Some toy manufacturers are removing toys dealing with police figures etc.

      Maybe a growing trend will be to diminish the police, their morale, numbers, assets and just let the mobs rule. It’s a sarcastic comment. But, with everyone bending over backwards for ruffians, and excoriating those believing in law and order or patriotic symbols (like the flak taken by Drew Brees), it’s not really so off base to see the streets and radical thinking taking over.

    81. NYCmike says:

      That Thune clip is NOT a good sign.

      I have lived in NYC since I was born, thru the 70’s and 80’s into the 90’s when urban blight was taking hold, and then saw the Giuliani renaissance, which allowed for Bloomie to become Mayor. That gave us 20 years of common sense economic policies, and for the most part, common sense law-and-order policies.

      Here is my take on how it applies to the national level, think of it what you will…..

      You can’t give any quarter to the demons in charge of the Democratic Party at this time. They will not relent. If Senators and representatives start mouthing platitudes about “we need to listen” yada yada yada, that will turn off the base, lessen the enthusiasm, and give independents reason not to vote for you in this election.

      The problem is, to go along with that strict adherence to law-and-order, you must consistently preach a message of (sorry to get religious here, paraphrasing) “Do unto others as you wish them to do unto you”. Giuliani’s campaign slogan was “One City, One Standard”.

      Just so you know, Democrats called that slogan racist.

      I think Trump will pull it off. I hope the other Republicans are strong enough to do the same.

    82. NYCmike says:

      Country Dick,

      I have already said it, but will say it again…..I agree about the military.

      I don’t want them deployed. Keep insisting on national guard units, every day.

      And keep asking, over and over, on Twitter “Why aren’t Democratic Mayors and Governors looking to help the police and law-abiding citizens by calling in national guard units?”.

    83. Tina says:

      The riots are dying down. Parts of ny appear to be the worse, but this is cuomo Deblasio sheot show.

      No military will be used.

    84. Tina says:

      Using the national guard is the best option.

      This does not apply to any Antifa attack on the WH, such as a breach.

      Biden is at 16% approval with those who DO NOT watch MSNBC. Let that sink in. Trump is at 63% with those who DO NOT watch MSNBC.

      Trump is winning in all areas EXCEPT the South? Besides Virginia, what state in the South is Trump losing? How is that even possible? Furthermore, the poll has 38% of the respondents from the South, hence the tiny Biden lead. (Northeast is 17%, West 28%).

      I think Biden looks good temporarily. But in the end, these riots will be used to paint a bad picture of the Democrats. Trump and his people are very good at that even when there’s little ammunition. Now the rioters and vandals have given them a treasure trove of ammunition in visuals.

      Early in the week, Biden had one of his best speeches that I’ve ever seen him give. But, not that many noticed amidst the nation burning down. Biden can be a very good at consoling since he has had a lot of legitimate loss himself. If he were able to do more of that, he could continue to have a good showing and contrast to Trump.

      We’ll see.

      Watch this weekend’s Sunday news shows highlight Mattis and his negative critique of Trump. They just love it when they can grab someone like that to carry out their mission of discrediting the president even more.

      It’s ironic, though, because Mattis’s main disagreement with Trump was his “divisiveness,” rather than bringing the country together. I wonder what Mattis thought his inflammatory op ed would do during these trying times – certainly not provide any mitigation to the divisiveness he derided Trump for!

      Let’s create a riot, ignore coronavirus since that’s over, not police the riot or stop because that’s “racist” and then blame Trump for it.

Mattis, I think you’re missing something here, my friend. You’re missing the fact that the liberal media has taken every event in the last three and a half years and laid it at the presidency. I’m not saying he’s blameless, but I am saying you’re buying into a narrative that I think is quite frankly unfair.”

      Once again these TDS folks like General Maddis have misjudged the mood right now in most of America. A fora few nights we watched a group of thugs and low lifes who injured over 60 Secret Service Agents, burned a church and tried to break into the White House. We have watched scores of police officers injured and even killed. We have watched purely evil creeps break into countless storefront business and even major retail department stores, some shop owners were killed. And General Maddis has the nerve to say that the administration was wrong to consider bringing in the military? What a misjudgment of most of America!

      Maybe General Mad Dog should reread his history and remember our past with the insurrection act. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it was invoked during labor conflicts. Later in the 20th century, it was used to enforce federally mandated desegregation, with presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy invoking the Act in opposition to the affected states’ political leaders to enforce court-ordered desegregation.

      The deep dark dirty secret is that this has been a great week for the GOP and Trump. Millions of voters across the fruited plane have seen a vision of what are Country would be like if these people win. After this week we have learned that the Democratic is the party that wants to defund the police. If that happens guess who would be in charge?

      Mad Dog is on the wrong side of history.

      What a load of crap.

      The party is still Republican. The majority of current Republicans do not share in the ideals that attracted me to the party, mainly limited government and a defense of free trade, free markets, free enterprise and personal responsibility. I no longer feel comfortable in the party I was extremely loyal to for decades. I worked and voted for and donated to a lot of people I didn’t really agree with for the good of the party. I quit the party so I don’t have to feel disloyal not doing that anymore.

      But I can still criticize what I see as the shrinking tent of the party, where only 100% litmus tested ideologically pure office holders are not RINOS.

      If someone like Ben Sasse is not considered a Republican there are not going to be many Republicans left.

      Maybe that is the plan. A small group of narrow minded group thinkers.

We can all act shocked and damn them for supping with the devil, but neither bank had any real choice but to make the unpalatable decision to support the unsupportable. Both know their futures depend too much on China’s patronage to survive without kow-towing.

      My guess is Sasse, Murkowski, and others are reading the early tea leaves for this election and have decided things are probably going to look a lot different the day after. In all honesty, that’s not that surprising. Presidential losses (should that happen) often produce parties that look a lot different.

      If Trump comes up short, I suspect the party that emerges over the first half of 2021 will snap back to towards the party we saw in late 2013 and 2014. There will still be a populist streak, but Trump’s domination of the agenda won’t be as strong.

      This week feels like it could be pivotal for the election and that could be why we’re seeing many speak out, but we won’t know for a few weeks if what’s happened matters or has been forgotten.

      Oh, I’m not arguing that that IHME model has anything like a good track record…..just that it is becoming evident that over the last couple of weeks it was too optimistic.

      I think the point is that a president can use the insurrection act to quell rioting. In fact, the Jebot wanted this. We know why he wanted it.

      Trump said he could do it but prefer that local police get tougher with rioters and take control (dominate) the streets.
      He suggested to use the national guard. It’s a fact that blue state idiot politicians were not devoting full resources (police/ police and national guard) to quell.

      The last president to use the insurrection act, at the requests of the then Ca governor and mayor was bush 41.

    186. NYCmike says:

      There is always time enough for Senatorial debate. That was the original intent of the Senate, to slow things down, let passions subside over the topic of the day, so bad legislation is not passed in a rush.

      From the article:

      “But thanks to opposition from his own party, Graham had to postpone a vote to issue the subpoenas until next week. Senate Democrats successfully hijacked the discussion to instead vent about police brutality and racism. “Instead of engaging in political partisan gains on behalf of this president what the American people want this committee to do is to be relevant to why they are shouting and marching and crying in the streets of our country,” California Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) scolded Thursday morning. “I would dare say the conversation we are having today is irrelevant to what…is happening on the streets of America today.””

    187. jason says:

      I disagree with Cotton’s attack on legal immigration.

      I disagree with his idea to use the 101st airborne against the demonstrators.

      Huge blowout with job numbers!!! Two million jobs added. The talking heads on Fox Business are dumbfounded by the good news. Hello v shaped recovery. Once again I will say it until I am blue in the face this has been a terrible week for our country with these riots, but it has been a great week for Trump and the GOP! All I can say is BOOM!!!

      It will be interesting to see how CNN handles this great news? How can you ignore it?

    226. Bitterlaw says:

      I think the problem is that we are trying to have a discussion about race but we do not speak the same language. It is like trying to have a conversation where one person speaks English and the other speaks Chinese. We can never know what it is like to experience life as a different race. I am not excusing rioting. Maybe white people think more profess has been made than really occurred. Maybe more black people don’t realize how much progress has been made. I don’t know if it can ever improve but I am willing to listen,

    227. Michelle Obama vs the DNC buffet table says:

      I’m sure Trump will be his subdued, measured self and not crow about the unemployment numbers on Twitter today.

    228. dblaikie says:

      I agree Bitter. The truth is that when I am pulled over for speeding I expect polite treatment and a ticket that I try to talk my way out of. However when a black man is pulled over for speeding he worries that something else could happen. That is the issue that needs to be addressed — from both sides.

    229. dblaikie says:

      Trump has every right to crow about these numbers! They are huge for him.

      Bl, great point. Thanks.

      After this week the Democratic party can by identified by this simple phrase: “Defund the Police.” Isn’t that a great slogan to run on. It is only 3 words. Even Uncle Joe with his dementia can remember it.

    233. dblaikie says:

      Of course if they don’t like the simple “defund the police” there is another simple three word phrase that the Dems have embraced — “Lock downs are good.”

    234. dblaikie says:

      Of course the Democrats could embrace another phrase that is just a little more complicated: “Social distancing is the law, unless you attend a protest.” But I wonder if Joe could handle that?

    235. Tina says:

      This is a huge shot in the arms for trump.

    236. Country Dick Montana says:

      277 – Bitter, You are absolutely right when it comes to a conversation at the national level. That is primarily because conflict sells. I just don’t see it on a personal level. I guess my guys don’t talk much about race as they do about the work that they are performing at that particular time. Conversations after work tend towards hunting/guns, fishing, sports and complaining about management.

      That said there is a bit of self segregation (I saw the same thing in college 50 years ago in the cafeteria), but overt animosity, I don’t see it.

    237. Country Dick Montana says:

      Another concern will be corporations limiting speech outside of work. When that happens, it simply drives that speech underground where it is more combustible.

      Ok but who is listening to the message that Trump has done a lot more for black people in 3 years than Obama did in 8.

      If the problem is that blacks are economically disadvantaged, nobody has tried to address this more than Trump.

      I am all for “listening”, but the fact is there is one side that is not interested in anything not according to their narrative.

      Bitter, I am so so sorry to hear about your niece. There are truly no words that can give you any true comfort, other than you have people here who care for you, and are with you. We are praying for your family and especially your niece. May God be with her and you

    245. Robbie says:

      The economic recovery has continued to confound the coronavirus doomsayers in the press, yet those same people continue to say stuff without any consideration for their past failures.

      If anyone wants a good example, go watch an interview this morning with Diane Swonk on CNBC. She was almost in tears she was so upset about the employment numbers. She then went on to say coronavirus cases are spiking, hospitalizations are spiking, and a vaccine may only provide 6 months immunity. This from an economist.

    248. Phil says:

      She may be an economist in name, Robbie, but she’s actually a left wing hack first.

      The left today has now gotten a taste of what it will be like economically when the country really opens up.

      You can now bet your ass the media is going to really double down on the lockdown. You can see this coming a mile away.

    249. Tina says:

      Speaking of upset with economic numbers today.

      Paul Krugman implies the numbers are false.

    250. Phil says:

      The left has got to go all in on not opening the economy. Expect a rash of stories about how the virus is making a comeback and how it is “irresponsible” to open up.

      How do they square that with the fact that they have been all but cheerleading for tens of thousands of people protesting in the streets? Simple, The Chuck Todds of the world will simply be silent on the inconsistentsy of it all.

    251. janz says:

      Bitter, I’ll join the rest here in extending my empathy to you about your niece. Such tragic incidents transcend all else.

    252. Country Dick Montana says:

      Interesting article in HuffPO (bear with me here.) Two of the officers involved in the George Floyd arrest were on their 3rd shift and 4th day ever on the police force. Apparently they both expressed concerns about Floyd. Chauvin was their training officer.

    253. Tina says:

      Phil. These vile “health officials” are disgusting.

      It’s ok to now protest, but only because it’s a protest that they “agree” with.

    254. Phil says:

      Yep. Now I know how we can justify putting 80,000 in football stadiums this fall. Just refer to each game as a protest.

      What PPP changes? Was that today?

      BTW, does this demonstrate how much the PPP program worked or what. I know for a fact I was able to keep all of my workers on because of it. None went on unemployment.

      This despite all they changes that the Dems made to it. Originally it was four months and included my rent, insurance and tax payments, they cut it to two months and no other expenses.

    262. Tina says:

      Admittingly trump went on and onion his speech

    263. Robbie says:

      Since Trump is getting detailed updates on vaccines, I’d rather he give some hard data as opposed to vague comments that things are going great. Don’t get me wrong. I like the optimism, but, with Trump, you never know if his mouth is running ahead of the facts. That could lead to a bit of a disappointment, but better his optimism than him telling us not to depend on a vaccine.

    264. Country Dick Montana says:

      Forget vaccines. Coronavirus is done as an issue. The states are opening and no one is more grateful for that than the blue state governors who desperately need tax revenue.

      The issues now are racism, law and order and the economy. I suspect that the economy will move to the front in about 2 weeks. Rioting won’t continue forever. There will be nothing left to burn and loot.

    265. VictrC says:

      Tina – that’s great news actually. The relief application is a nightmare right now.

      With regards to the anti-police movement (you know the Biden/Clinton defund the police crowd) this from Minneapolis. They are going to break up the police dept and replace it with…” According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Bender sees the city’s potentially revamped public safety force as potentially sending social workers or other civilian personnel into situations that are traditionally handled by police.”

      So crime is going to be handled by social workers and civilian personnel who won’t be armed. That is going to work.

      I wouldn’t want to own any property there right now. Truly, if Biden wins this country is going to become a lawless, nanny state where crime won’t be punished, unless of course you are a Conservative.

    266. Robbie says:

      Country Dick

      My industry needs a vaccine. We’ve got to get people flying again and using the middle seat.

      On top of that, many if these authoritarian governors won’t end their social distancing garbage without it.

      Oh, and we need it so people will stop wearing masks.

    267. Michelle Obama vs the DNC buffet table says:

      Even Obama’s former head economic advisor is busting on what an imbecile Krugman is:

      Jason Furman
      @jasonfurman
      You can 100% discount the possibility that Trump got to the BLS. Not 98% discount, not 99.9% discount, but 100% discount.

      BLS has 2,400 career staff of enormous integrity and one political appointee with no scope to change this number. https://twitter.com/paulkrugman/status/1268887669200883714

    268. Country Dick Montana says:

      Authoritarian governors become less and less popular everyday. Things will open whether they want it to or not.

      People are going to fly again with or without the vaccine, just as they won’t allow themselves to be locked down forever.

    269. Scooterboy says:

      Rasmussen is saying that black likely voter approval of Trump is now over 40% in their daily tracking poll.

      Not sure I believe that or not, but if it’s anywhere close to that in November, it’s lights out the party’s over.

    275. Tgca says:

      To me, race relations cannot advance until at least a few things occur, and we may never get their totally. We may just have to find a compromise but a certain level of distrust will always exist.

      1. Deal with the fear on both sides. AA pulled over by police, and police fearing being harmed or made a scapegoat if things go wrong as part of their duties.

      2. Better universal training for police to deal with situations and outlets for police stress being managed. I can’t think of any other job group, except the military, where you routinely go to work expecting a conflict, dealing with criminals of all types and races, being distrusted, having folks being uncooperative, being hated, and significant risk of harm. How would any of us like to deal with our work peers like that day in and day out? Partly the reason police have high divorce and suicide rates too. That is not to say all police work is awful but this is a significant part of what they deal with daily.

      3. AA community must deal with black on black crime and not just blame police when statistically black men are significantly more likely to die in a black on black confrontation then a police one.

      4. Really look at ways to help reduce black poverty. The Dems solutions have not worked. The GOP solutions have not worked. We should try and take care of our own before spending so much effort on helping others. The benefits are enormous while inaction is not acceptable.

      5. Both sides must accept they have to find ways to understand and compromise and let go of the past to the extent they can co-exist going forward.

      6. Media and politicians need to stop stoking the fires on race and pitting groups against one another purposely.

      There are other items to address too but this is an enormous task that has had no success in 100 years.

    276. Tgca says:

      I also do not accept others are the root of all ills in society. Both my brothers spent time in and out of jail during their youth for petty crimes and altercations. My brother once was confronted for theft in breaking and entering when he was around 17 and attacked the officer and tried to grab his gun. He was lucky he was not shot or given a lengthy incarceration.

      My mother always excused the behavior as the influence of others or police prejudice against Latinos.

      It was all BS! My brothers were criminals due to their own behavior and choices, and probably some lack of parenting too. Yeah, we lived in tough neighborhoods, with no father mentor since our father was non-existent in our lives and we had a mean and uncaring stepfather, and it was stressful and humiliating to be poor and have little while you see others with much more and people belittled and mocked us for poverty and our ethnicity but we still had choices to make. Most do not give into the internal rage so it can be done, no matter how hard.

      This is why I refuse to accept I should have guilt because of the choices of others. I understand the need for compassion and charity towards others but I will NEVER accept that I am solely responsible for their plight, making change for them or ensuring their societal behavior is appropriate. It needs to be a 2-way street no matter how hard.

      If that makes me a racist, a jerk, or anything else so be it with the labels. There has to be some level of self accountability in life.

The fact cases continue to sit around 20,000 while the death rate falls is a sign that may be the case. It’s possible the virus has already blown through the at-risk population and there just aren’t as many left who could die.

      – I’ve chosen to mostly avoid you lately, but you’ve become increasingly stupid which is saying something.

      I’ve repeatedly said for the last two months Trump announcing a vaccine approval in the early Fall timeframe would be a game changer in the election that few analysts seem to be discussing.

      I’ve also said this week Trump would be rewarded by the public if he used the military under the Insurrection Act to restore law and order. A law and order message in the face of lawless rioting will always be a winner.

    295. NYCmike says:

      Michael was MD’s protege, so it actually does make a lot of sense.

    296. Tgca says:

      What Trump actually said

      The president spoke about the death of Floyd as he addressed the unexpectedly good economic and job numbers.

      “We saw what happened last week,” he continued. “We cannot let that happen. Hopefully, George is looking down right now and saying, there is a great thing that’s happening for our country. It is a great day for him. It is a great day for everybody. This is a great, great day in terms of equality.”

      If you review the entire message, I think he was mixing 2 messages here, and yes, he could have done better articulating them separately but I believe what he was trying to say is we are on our way to coming together in both addressing race issues and laying a foundation for economic fairness for all.

      As a Christian, the greatest opportunity one has is to go home to be with the Lord and released from these earthly bounds of limitation. That is why often you hear so many Christians take joy when they believe a loved one has gone home when at the same time acknowledging the pain they feel over personal loss. Death is always about those left behind and not those who are called home. I don’t expect most radical liberal Dems and MSM to understand faith.

      Maybe Michael is too busy Ho’ing on Tinder and Grindr to understand that as well. Ah! The stoopidity of youth. How I don’t miss it.

      I’ve seen this before. I once had a reasonably-minded conservative leaning friend who came out gay rather late and then got indoctrinated by his lefty gay circle and was never the same turning against all else he had believed in for years. Kinda like the Mayor Butt who hid and denied who he was for so long but has to be part of the extreme left to feel comfortable in his skin. He was an MD too but not the losah MD we had at HHR.

      yeah … ummmmmmmm … i don’t think trump was saying that … maybe i am wrong … but i personally don’t think trump is driven at all by religion

      i think trump is a person who grew up in the 1950’s and 1960’s and has the “rah rah, we are number 1, america first, where are the playboy bunnies?” mentality

      but … at that time there was also an idea that an honest job, any honest job, was a good thing … and a way up for all people.

      even in my lifetime i can remember people used to be embarrassed to go on welfare and food stamps

      soooooooooooo, imo, i think that is more what he meant … that 2 million jobs mean 2 million opportunities for all people including african americans to get some equality

    310. Tgca says:

      364. LisaB

      Stop being so damn literal!

      The religion comment was not about Trump. It was my point as how we Christians see Trumps point that Floyd is in a better place now. I agree Trump was not trying to make a religious argument. But I also don’t think he was trying to say Floyd would be happy with the latest employment numbers.

      I think he was trying to be inspirational in his very unorthodox manner that Trump haters don’t get. He was simply saying Floyd is looking down with smiles about how this horrible event is starting a dialog that will hopefully bring folks together and yield economic equality in the long term.

      Radical left and MSM can never see that. They do not want good to come out of Floyd’s death because it won’t fit their narrative they’re selling. They would blame the white-privileged Romans for crucifying Jesus without understanding that event was the catalyst for Christianity just as they would blame Jesus for causing division, hatred, and exclusion for promoting such evil concepts in religion.

    311. NYCmike says:

      “He was only so happy because of the job numbers. That’s why he was so upbeat. Thats all he cared about.”

      The President only cares about people working!

      Elect the Democrat who will pay you to sit on your arse!

    312. Tgca says:

      I suggest you reflect on Biden’s 40+ year career that included harming the AA communities through his political agenda. All of a sudden he cares? Yeah, he cares because he needs their votes to win as he can’t otherwise win without large AA turnout.

      He is also purposely looking to use the AA to win and then side with the radical left on policies that will harm all going forward.

      If you’re ok with that then fine but you being the baby of our little home here, remember, you will have to live with his policies that will looking to burden you the rest of your life with taxes and limit your options because of your ethnicity so he can buy more votes. He would gladly trade your job for a vote so good luck with that.

      It’s like a Jew supporting the Nazi. It defies common sense.

      I would rather vote for an obnoxious, egotistical, selfish person who actually has sensible policies than a devil in disguise manipulating the youth and minorities for his radical policies that will inevitable hurt and divide the country much more.

      Can you answer any of those questions?

    318. Tgca says:

      To be fair to Michael, it’s really hard to understand Trump at times as he is not focused and articulate in his speech. I guess I have an advantage growing up in the Sewer State where we have lotsa obnoxious, in your face, egotistical, thin-skinned folks. I guess you can say I speak Trump.

      Maybe when I’m 95 and totally incoherent and unaware, and sniffing everyone, I can then say I speak Biden too.

They support lock downs for Churches but open wide up for protests. And they have no trouble nominating a man who has dementia.

      Couple all this with the job numbers yesterday, and the primary results the forecast has turned rather sunny for the GOP.

      The biggest losers this weekend are the TDS infected Sunday Morning News hosts. They had the narrative all set (heck they still may try it) that Trump was going down.
