      Buttplugs seems to have some momentum.

      He is a nasty guy though.

      Does Napolitano EVER side with the US against terrorists?

      He created some twisted logic saying Obama could kill anyone after the then-President ordered the attack on bin Laden.

      Logic doesn’t seem to be something known well to Napolitano.

      jason changed his name to “Everyone Else <1%"?

      Once people find that out, he will probably start moving up in the polls!

      Michigan is doing well, Ford and Gm just made 1500 temporary positions permanent in Michigan.

      A very impressive ad for the very impressive GOP candidate in TX CD-7, Wesley Hunt. What do you think?(He’s running for a seat that was lost in 2018.)

    11. jason says:

      The general was not engaged in an act of violence at the time he was killed, nor were any of his companions.”

      I guess this confirms Napolitano is complete moron.

      Under this scenario, the Allies could not have taken Hitler out if he wasn’t actually executing Jews or fighting on the Russian front?

    12. jason says:

      I am worried this could become a rule here at HHR.

      So I could not call Amoral Scumbag an Amoral Scumbag unless he was actually being an Amoral Scumbag at that very moment?

      Trump downed the plane, per the jebots:

      Laurence Tribe
      Verified account

      Follow Follow @tribelaw
      Trump’s “flying in a tough neighborhood” & “it has nothing to do with us” were typical “who, me?” moves. Did it never occur to him that the plane filled with 176 souls would almost certainly never have been targeted by a trigger-happy Iranian missile but for the assassination?

    14. PresidentPaul! says:

      Big jobs reports tomorrow friday and on tuesday some of first big earnings reports are out. Show the cards.

      No actual risk to any of this. If leading indicators are bad (jobs report) we get more rate cuts, more QE, and higher stock prices especially the big caps.

      If jobs reports is really good, we still get higher stock prices. It’s a no brain rally.

    15. NYCmike says:

      Lots of noise in that head of yours, bunu.

    16. jason says:

      Bunu has a lot of conversations with himself that nobody else cares about.

    17. jason says:

      So it’s Trump’s fault the Iranians shot down a passenger plane because Iran feared Trump might retaliate because Iran was firing missiles at US troops?

    18. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      So the fierce Iranian counterattack that liberals were predicting (and often cheering for) resulted in no U.S. casualties, and Iran shooting down a passenger plane contained Iranian citizens and Iranian expatriates. World War III does not seem to be going well for Iran.

    19. Big Joe says:

      Bloomberg was not included in the poll or is he <1%?

      Big Joe

    20. jason says:

      I am sure Lawrence Tribe blamed Iran for the USS Vincennes shooting down an Iranian airliner. After all, the trigger happy people on the Vincennes were only trigger happy because Iran was attacking shipping in the Straight of Hormuz.

      And even though it was accidental…

      “According to the Iranian government, the shootdown was an intentionally performed and unlawful act”

    21. jason says:

      Bloomberg not on the ballot in NH, Big Joe.

    22. jason says:

      He is skipping IA and NH.

    23. Tina says:

      Stop calling it bunu.

      It is named Bubu.

      I pass out these nick names to be used.

    24. jason says:

      It is a strategy that didn’t work for Giuliani, my candidate at the time.

      The news cycle is very fast, and the buzz is going to be with those that did well in IA and NH, not those that are still waiting around to get their feet wet.

      But Bloomberg is a long shot. Giuliani was a front runner.

    25. jason says:

      I can’t argue with the nickname master.

      Hey Bubu, GFY.

    26. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      To his credit, Mitt Romney came to the defense of Trump’s actions in Iran, against Senator Lee’s attacks:

      Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, called the debate over the president’s authority with regard to hostilities “one of the great, amorphous issues” that has been around Washington for a long time.

      “The president, I believe, acted within the authority as understood now,” he said of last week’s airstrike. “But I recognize if we were, for instance, to go to war with another country, whether Iran or any other, that that would require congressional approval.”

      Drawing the line of what it means to go to war has been difficult, he said.

      “There’ve been many attempts, both Republicans and Democrats, to try and draw that line as to what a president can do without congressional authority and what can he do only with congressional authority, and so far, no one has succeeded in being able to draw a clear distinction,” Romney said.

      Romney talked to Kaine about his proposal Tuesday.

      “But I’m not at this stage comfortable with any of the proposals seen so far to make that delineation,” he said.””

      Lee is up for re-election in 2022, and the rumblings are now that there will be a primary challenge.

    27. Big Joe says:

      “Bloomberg not on the ballot in NH, Big Joe.”

      #22 Thanks, Jason. I knew he was employing the failed Rudy strategy, didn’t realize that he wasn’t even on the ballot though.

    28. Tina says:

      Both Utah senators are open borders.

      Illegals first and foremost..

    29. Tina says:

      A strong argument can be said that the war powers act is unconstitutional.

      Lee is grandstanding.

      Ima, sure if the embassy was seized, he would be blaming trump.

      Not for a primary for him, only the fake R in Alaska.

    30. Tina says:

      Can Faux News Traffic Court Judge explain why a designated terrorist from Iran was even in Iraq?

      His answer better not include Just for Men hair products either.

    31. Big Joe says:

      Bloomberg is probably hoping for 4 different winners in the 4 early states. Then he’ll be the guy that voters turn to on Super Tuesday. While it’s possible there could be 4 different winners (3 is more likely, but not probable), I doubt voters will turn to a 5th option on Super Tues. They’ll probably stick with one of the top 4.

      Not really sure what Bloomberg is doing.

      Big Joe

    32. Wes says:

      Bloomberg doesn’t want to be the nominee. He wants to ensure Sanders and Warren can’t implement their wealth tax.

      That said, Bloomberg has enough money to compete without participating in the early primaries should Democrats see all previous options as fatally flawed and turn to him as the best option to take out Trump.

      I’ve seen his ads here. Bloomberg is defining himself as a problem solver and job creator while slamming Trump as an opponent of healthcare.

      That could actually be an effective campaign strategy if Dems do nominate the former Mayor of New York.

    33. jason says:

      Frankly, while a “brokered convention” is not out of the question, I find it hard to believe the far left moonbats that will comprise most of the delegates will turn to an ex-Republican to save the day, no matter how much he panders.

    34. Wes says:

      Jason, in 2016, a longtime Democrat with a history of liberal political views and contributions managed to convince conservative Republicans he was one of them and ultimately became President.

    35. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Jason, in 1980, a longtime Democrat with a history of liberal political views and contributions managed to convince conservative Republicans he was one of them and ultimately became President.

    36. Wes says:

      To be fair, Tina, Mike Lee doesn’t want a primary challenge either. He wants a coronation at a convention removing voters from the process of candidate selection.

      Like Mikey and the Tea Party in general, Utah’s senior Senator has a deep-rooted antipathy toward voters.

      Voters? We don’t need no stinking voters!

    37. PresidentPaul! says:

      Pump it up!

      AAPL and MSFT combine as larger market cap that the entire German stock market (largest european economy)

      Tesla (350k cars a years) passed Ford and GM combined today (over 10 million cars a year together)

    38. Big Joe says:

      “Bloomberg doesn’t want to be the nominee. He wants to ensure Sanders and Warren can’t implement their wealth tax.”

      His very presence as a declared candidate does the opposite. Fighting for Biden’s voters weakens him and could allow Bernie or Warren to sneak through. Then again, Bernie and Warren are also fighting for similar voters.

      I’m ready for the voting to start.

      Big Joe

    39. Tina says:

      I wonder if jebot 1 supports a drat brokered convention?

    40. Bitterlaw says:

      37 By 1980, Reagan had spent decades speaking out and supporting conservative candidates. He also governed as a mostly conservative Governor of California for 2 terms (but what about ABORTION, Bitter?).

      Win or lose in 2020, I will be happy when the comparisons of Trump to Reagan end.

    41. PresidentPaul! says:

      Every car in the whole foods parking lot better be a Tesla or we’re screwed.

    42. Tina says:

      The Canadian pm appears to be blaming trump for the shoot down. Who cares that the mullahs did it and lied about it.

      The mullahs blames engine failure on a 4 year old plane.

    43. PresidentPaul! says:

      bye bye bitcoin google cracked your code.

    44. Bitterlaw says:

      I support primaries. I would not support Deadeners in primaries. Both can be true.

    45. Wes says:

      SDC forgets Reagan began moving away from the Democrats in the 1950s and registered as a Republican during the Johnson Administration at least 14 years before becoming President. Being a quarter century removed from being a Democrat probably meant he was not known for even having been a Democrat previously.

      Of course my point was not to bash Trump but to point out conservative Republicans went with a man most known in politics for liberalism and support of Democrats.

      Bloomberg was a Republican only strategically to avoid the Democrat primary for Mayor and garner Giuliani’s endorsement. He’s far less associated with Republicans than Trump was with Democrats, thus making him an unlikely target for the Left as a former Republican, especially given his post-mayoral work on behalf of the Democrats.

    46. Bitterlaw says:

      Jimmy Carter killed the people on that plane. Follow:

      1. At the urging of Kissinger, Carter allowed the Shah to come to the US for medical treatment.

      2. This really pissed off those in Iran opposed to the Shah.

      3. The Iranian Revolution brings in Khomeni and “Death to America” becomes Iran’s foreign policy.

      Blah Blah Blah

      10. Trump orders the killing of the General.

      11. Iran launches missiles at airbases.

      12. On high alert, Iran shoots down plane.

      There is an alternate theory going back to Julius Ceasar but it involves 237 steps.

    47. NYCmike says:

      “There is an alternate theory going back to Julius Ceasar but it involves 237 steps.”

      -And, we don’t want to show how Walt’s involvement with Cleopatra was the reason for Caesar’s anger.

    48. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      51. Musk should thank his big sugardaddy — the U.S. taxpayers:

      “A study published two years ago by The Los Angeles Times revealed that just three of Musk’s ventures – SolarCity Corp. (which manufactured and installed solar energy systems before its 2016 merger with Tesla Motors Inc.), Tesla Motors Inc. (which manufactures electric vehicles), and Space Exploration Technologies Corp., known as SpaceX (which builds rocket ships) – had received $4.9 billion in government subsidies to that point in time. By now, Musk’s various ventures have sucked well over $5 billion from government coffers.

      But granting literally billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies to Musk’s firms isn’t the worst of it. No, that honorific is reserved for this little gem: In order to induce car buyers to spend their money on electric vehicles, the federal government offers a $7,500 rebate on the purchase price.
      Some states enhance that rebate with rebates of their own. In California, for instance, purchasers of electric vehicles get a state-funded rebate of $2,500 more.
      There’s a phrase for that – it’s called “crony capitalism.” And it stinks.

    49. PresidentPaul! says:

      Zero inflation expectations across the board. Free lunches forever? How can this magic be wrong?

      Former Fed Chair Alan Greenspan: Inflation will ‘inevitably rise’ as deficit balloons (see min 6:30)

    50. PresidentPaul! says:

      China is likewise subsidizing electric vehicles (and the new gigfactory there) although I have read they intend to scale these back.

    51. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      54. China is cutting back and redirecting solar subsidies. One difference from the U.S. is China is at least attempting to use its subsidies in a manner that will benefit the nation (although cronyism creeps into it too). By contrast Musk, who spends more tha a million dollars a year on Washington lobbyists, is distorting the subsidy process for his own benefit. You have the same issue with the largest tech firms avoiding payment of taxes in the U.S., then supporting leftist politics.

      “BEIJING (Reuters) – China will cut its renewable power subsidy to 5.67 billion yuan ($806.50 million) in 2020 from 8.1 billion yuan in 2019, the Ministry of Finance said on Wednesday, as the country will soon stop funding large solar power stations.
      Because of a decline in manufacturing costs, China has been scaling back the amount of subsidies to renewable power providers, who are expected to compete with coal-fired utilities and achieve “grid price parity”.
      The subsidy for 2020 will be allocated to wind farms, biomass power generators and distributed solar power operators, as well as solar power projects for poverty alleviation purposes, in 11 regions across the country, according to the finance ministry.”

    52. Tina says:

      And the mullahs lied.

      Within minutes, they claimed engine failure.

      Despite the engines being intact.

      Despite visible shrapnel marks on plane.

    57. Phil says:

      So Sanders is up 4 and 5 points in Wisconsin and Nevada according to Fox.

      LOL. Those numbers vs Sanders tells me their methodology is BS…..but, yeah, Bernie Sanders is sweeping the swig states. Probably have him up in Georgia and running even in Texas.

      -Or, it could mean “CG” and Robbie are right!

      Could you imagine those 2 if Trump loses!?!?

    61. Phil says:

      They aren’t right. Sanders isn’t sweeping the swing states. Let’s put it this way, if this nation is willing to elect a full blown self identified 79 year old crazy socialist who honeymooned in the USSR, we all might as well quit wasting any more time on this and every other political website because the nation’s politics are no longer competitive. The US has become one big one party leftist nation. It will be all over and everyone on this website should find another hobby outside of politics. I know I will.

    62. lisab says:

      Could you imagine those 2 if Trump loses!?!?

      now that warren has faded i am unlikely to vote for trump

      but if there was one reason to vote for trump, it would be so i don’t have to listen to them

    63. Bitterlaw says:

      If Trump loses, Corey and Robbie will be hard to take. And then we will go back into the big tent and support the GOP nominee in 2024. Except for Robbie. He will stay Robbie.

    64. PresidentPaul! says:

      I just don’t see any energy in the Biden campaign. He’s basically a male Hillary.

    65. lisab says:

      indeed … would you rather read corey’s posts after trump loses


      listen to an adam schiff 4 hour long speech, with

    66. Cash Cow TM says:

      “-And, we don’t want to show how Walt’s involvement with Cleopatra was the reason for Caesar’s anger.”

      Walt said Caesar got bent out of shape due to a misunderstanding. There was a logical reason why Walt was found in Cleopatra’s bedroom…but Caesar never gave a chance for Walt to explain.

    67. mRviTO says:

      Walt is just covering his asp.

    68. jason says:

      The Reagan/Trump analogy is really dumb. Does not even merit comment.

      Amoral Scumbag will support a Republican in 2024.

      Just not the one nominated.*

      *Ok, ok, Bitter, you get the footnote.

He’s far less associated with Republicans than Trump was with Democrats, thus making him an unlikely target for the Left as a former Republican, especially given his post-mayoral work on behalf of the Democrats.”

      Wes makes a reasonable point.

      But the far left moonbats are not reasonable. They won’t support Bloomberg.

    71. jason says:

      I saw this description of Bloomberg the other day:

      “An anti-teachers’-union, anti-gun, pro-nanny state, pro-Wall Street, pro-stop-and- frisk, pro-inequality, pro-immigration, pro-surveillance, pro-Iraq War neoconservative is almost surgically designed to repel practically every American voter on some level.”

    72. jason says:

      He has reversed on stop and frisk to appease the moonbats, but I doubt he really believes he was wrong.

    73. jason says:

      Don’t you love the MSM.

      Their new buzzword is “crossfire”.

      The Ukrainian jet was downed in a “crossfire”, so somehow the US can share responsibility.

      There was of course, no crossfire. The only fire was Iran shooting missiles from Iran towards US troops in Iraq.

      These people have no shame.

    74. PresidentPaul! says:

      Have a good feeling about this jobs report…

    75. VictrC says:

      Hello from the other side of the globe:

      Proof positive that the MSM will look for any morsel to push Trump down:

      1. Today’s job report shows a slight miss on target but U6 dropping to 6.7% its lowest point in history. Participation up, the rate holding steady but again, a small miss and a small adjustment ot the preview two months (7K jobs on average) yet the MSM is painting it as doom and bring up Obama as if he had a million jobs a month growth.

      2. The MSM is trying to spin the Iranian killing of 175 civilians in a passenger jet as Trumps/USA fault.

      You cant make this stuff up.

    76. dblaikie says:

      I just don’t understand this current crop of media people. They are so disconnected and so arrogant about their ability to persuade that they actually think that they can twist stuff to make Trump look like the villain in the Middle East and the Iranian regime as innocents. Trump derangement knows no limits or bounds. It even leads you to trash your own country and spit on the graves of the hundreds of our soldiers whose death lies at the feet of the mullahs in Iran!

      The above paragraph goes for the dems too.

    77. jason says:

      On Twitter:

      “Yes it’s “crossfire” when we launched a drone strike inside Iraq and then later Iran fired missiles at Iraq and also at a plane taking off in the middle of its own country 600 miles away from there, you f-cking dishonest morons.”

    78. dblaikie says:

      For me the apex of this hatred, this nonsense, was Chris Matthews comparing Qasem Soleimani popularity and death to Elvis and Princess Dianna.

    79. jason says:

      I am sure Corey and Amoral Scumbag are on board with “crossfire” because it reflects badly on Trump.

      The ends justify the means.

    80. Wobbles says:

      To be fair to the MSM, if the drone that killed Suleimani had brought down an airliner by mistake, the MSM would certainly have blamed it on “crossfire”.

    81. jason says:

      CNN promotes the “crossfire” story while at the same time complaining about “fake news”.

      The hypocrisy is astounding.

    82. jason says:

      If Trump loses, Corey and Robbie will be hard to take.”

      They will move on to advocate the GOP lose the House and Senate by big majorities in 2022 because that will be bad for Trump.

      They will also advocate for a socialist to be re-elected in 2024 because that might be bad for Trump.

    83. jason says:

      Btw, if Trump wins they will advocate the same thing.

    84. Messy says:

      Tom Styer is second in SC. Wow!!!!

    85. jason says:


      “Increasingly alarmed that Bernie Sanders could become their party’s presidential nominee, establishment-minded Democrats are warning primary voters that the self-described democratic socialist would struggle to defeat President Trump and hurt the party’s chances in premier House, Senate and governors races.”

    86. jason says:

      Dang, I would send Steyer a check but he doesn’t need it.

    87. jason says:

      I think an 80 year old socialist has a great chance of beating Trump.

      These establishment Dems are worried about nothing.

    88. jason says:

      Ok, ok, most of the Dems are 80 year old socialists.

      I meant Bernie.

    89. jason says:


    90. jason says:

      So Messy’s candidate is a Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs billionaire who made a fortune in hedge funds, migrant detention centers, coal mines and private prisons?

      Not that I have a problem with any of that, but remember poor Mitt Romney?

      “Former President Obama cast GOP challenger Mitt Romney in 2012 as a ruthless plutocrat who made millions of dollars on corporate takeovers that put thousands of Americans out of work. Romney co-founded Bain Capital, a private equity firm.”

    91. jason says:

      Atlanta PD will no longer chase criminals if they flee from cops.

    92. jason says:

      Of course, Corey endorsed a racist bigot, so politics creates strange bedfellows.

      The other day Corey came up with the debunked “Muslim Ban” canard, but:

      “Islam has a problem. It’s our right & it’s our duty to profile Muslims.

      Until Islam reforms, we have to treat Muslims differently.

      Got it?”

      No problem.

      “I have a right to call Obama a Muslim”..”I have a right to say blacks are lazy and the Irish are drunks.”

      No problem

      “How many fans would the Washington Dirty Micks have? How about the Washington N-ggers?”


      “Haiti is a sh-thole and it’s run by blacks. The violence in Chicago is all black on black.”

      That’s ok.

      But vetting travelers from terrorist sponsoring nations?

      Congressional Resolution would be a no-brainer. Of course the Intelligence Community and the military deserve praise and credit.

      Well, how was it accidental if it was because it “flew close to a military site”.

      This explanation makes it look like it was intentionally shot down.

      And of course, it’s smells like BS, since why would a commercial airliner flying out of the international airport be anywhere near military sites, since it presumably would have taken the same path every other airliner did.

    139. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      145. This is a pretty serious admission. Plus, even with censorship, am sure the Iranian people realize that the Iranian revenge attacks were ineffective. Within in the last year there were massive anti-government demonstrations in Iran. Wonder if they resume.

    140. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      From ex-Navy SEAL Jack Carr on Fox News:

      “I found out about the death of Iranian commander Gen. Qaseem Soleimani along with the rest of the world. My reaction was personal. I didn’t celebrate. I didn’t cheer. I didn’t gloat. Instead, I remembered.

      I remembered driving the road where he was killed. I remembered the time I spent at the recently besieged U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. And, I remembered the friends I lost to IEDs, particularly to the Explosively Formed Penetrators, or EFPs.

      I remembered that Gen. Soleimani led the effort that resulted in the deaths of my friends.

      Iranian political and military leadership, including Gen. Soleimani, neglected one of the most ancient maxims in the history of warfare: know thy enemy.

      “President Trump is not the type of American politician to which Iran’s leaders had become accustomed over the past 40 years. This president actually did what he said he would do. U.S. policy vis-à-vis Iraq, Iran and the greater Middle East changed with the new administration.”

      Those who wanted to turn-and-run should realize the terrorists will be chasing you, and will eventually catch up. 9-11 is a case in point.

    141. jason says:

      “Of course the Inspector General concluded that the investigations into Trump’s people were valid.”

      Of course Corey knows this is fake news and just an MSM talking point.

      The IG report didn’t say the investigations were “valid”. It said that the interviews conducted did not establish that bias was the motivating factor for the investigations. However, under questioning, the IG said it could not be ruled out either.

      “Was it your conclusion that political bias did not affect any part of the Page investigation, any part of Crossfire Hurricane?” Hawley asked.

      “We did not reach that conclusion,” Horowitz testified.”

      And finally Corey knows that both the AG and Durham issued statement basically saying “hold your horses, there is more information here that actually was available to the IG”.

      In fact the statement said:

      Our investigation has included developing information from other persons and entities, both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S. Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened,” Durham’s statement concludes.”

      So it is interesting that a “conservative” like Corey regurgitates the MSM narrative here when highly respected people like the AG and US Attorney Durham specifically dispute that narrative.

    142. jason says:

      Of course, it turns out that the Justice Department told less than the full truth about what the report actually said.”

      Qasem Soleimani: Why his killing is good news for IS jihadists

      “ In an editorial of the weekly IS newspaper al-Naba, the group said that Soleimani and al-Muhandis died at the hands of their “allies” – a reference to the US.
      It said the enemies of IS were busy fighting each other, which would drain their energy and resources and ultimately benefit jihadists.
      History has shown that jihadist extremists thrive most when they can take advantage of instability, chaos, and weakened, divided enemies.
      That has happened before and there is a strong chance it will happen again.

      I know, I know. Aron Day. Of course when supposedly conservative Deadender Indy runs for the express purpose electing a moonbat, receives five digits worth of votes, and crows about electing said moonbat over a Senator with a high approval rating, I find the argument he cost the Senator the election a bit more compelling than the argument that Kelly Ayotte cost Trump NH by refusing to campaign with him.

      Sue me for applying logic to the situation.

      By the way, John McCain, Lisa Murkowski, and Rob Portman all did the same as Ayotte. They won, and Trump carried their states. Going by the logic blaming Ayotte, I guess those were phantom victories. Trump must actually have lost those states while the Senators lost.

      Kelly Ayotte was a spineless skank who brought her election loss on herself. She tried to cater and suck up to folks in very Mitt Romney fashion but people saw through it and that she was playing politics and her opponent took advantage of the situation. Generally, if an incumbent loses an election its because of the candidate, not others, though an extreme situation out of their control can have ramifications on results too (very bad economy or party scandal). Trump did not lose her the election; she lost it herself against a female governor who bested here…barely…but still bested her.

    164. Wes says:

      Reading comprehension isn’t exactly Tgca’s strong suit since no one claimed Trump cost Ayotte the election.

      At the same time, he proves how much of a brainwashed sycophant he is by claiming Ayotte is a skank.

      Great way to make your case, Tg. Call a woman with a 60% approval rating who lost because of a split vote a skank while rewriting history.

    165. Wes says:

      Of course the posters’ names change, but the talking points remain the same:

      Nothing electorally negative that happens to Trump is ever his fault. Ayotte cost him NH. Heck cost him NV. I’m sure they’ll find some way to say Mark Kirk in IL and the Republicans running for Senate in HI, WA, OR, CO, MD, NY, CT, and VT also cost him those states. It would make as much sense as saying Kelly Ayotte cost him NH.

      Their motto is the opposite of Harry Truman’s:

      The buck stops anywhere but here.

      In the likely event Trump loses the overall election in November, it won’t be Trump’s fault then either. The eeeeeeeeeeeeevil GOP “Establishment” will be responsible—unless they decide to go full Polaris and blame those pesky voters.

      Reid is a moron and the Chiefs are a lot better than the Texans.

      Both can be true.

      I actually think the Chiefs can win the SB now. The Titans are better than the Texans, but they did lose to the Broncos at home. So beat the Titans and play either the Packers (I think they will beat the Seahawks) or SF. They got a shot.

      The Donald Trump administration is ramping up its information war against Venezuela, Iran, and Syria. And it has enlisted social media platforms as weapons in its assault on these top regime-change targets.

      In the first two weeks of January, Twitter suspended dozens of accounts run by real, live people — not bots — in Venezuela, Iran, and Syria. Those erased from the website included heads of state, numerous state institutions, media outlets, and many average people who do not work for their governments.

      While Australia burns, California have one of its more limited fire seasons. Here is why from the Los Angeles Times:

      “It could have been another bad wildfire year in California. A bountiful summer crop of quick-to-burn dead grass carpeted the hillsides. Autumn was warm and dry. A record-breaking stretch of fire weather hit the Bay Area in October.
      But it wasn’t. California wildfires charred about 270,000 acres in 2019, the smallest number since 2011. The three fatalities and roughly 735 burned structures were a fraction of the catastrophic losses of the previous two fire seasons.
      The lower than expected toll followed an unusually wet spring and big snowpack, which slowed the start of the fire season. The installation of backcountry fire cameras gave firefighting crews early notice of ignitions. When flames approached, evacuation orders were swift and sweeping.

      But most critically, widespread preventive power shutdowns by the state’s largest electric utility diminished the chances of human-related ignitions at critical times — during high, hot winds that can fan a single spark into the kind of unstoppable inferno that destroyed the town of Paradise, Calif., and left 86 people dead in the 2018 Camp fire.

      It doesn’t matter how dry the vegetation, how fierce the winds or how high the temperature; if there is no ignition, there is no wildfire.
      Outside of the Sierra Nevada and the state’s northernmost tier, there is little lightning, nature’s ignition source.
      That means that, in much of California, more than 90% of the wildfires are started by people or their equipment. In coastal counties from Sonoma to San Diego, almost all the starts are human related.”

      Two year trade war with China barely a scratch on US economy Wall Street Journal finally admits after study. Some give and take occurred, as expected, but overall US prospered with barely a blip because of benefits elsewhere absorbed it.

      Study concludes:
      The U.S. economy is far more resilient and less reliant on China than Trump critics believed.

      The world economy is changing and the way companies and consumers are reacting may change long-standing economic theory. Unlike the laws of physics, economic principles are not always set in stone and we have seen such surprises in the recent decade with the fast changing world of commerce and technology. Though no trade war for an extended period is desirable, there were offsets in this recent one not expected by most of the so-called economic experts. That probably has more to do with technological advances and the fact that China was in a “bubble” position to begin with so this may be isolated to specific types of trade wars with specific trade partners. We’ll see what the future holds for such trade disagreements.

      Hey Dems, don’t listen to him. Or me.

      “Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign manager is warning that Democrats would struggle in a general election against Donald Trump if Bernie Sanders is the nominee.

      In an interview with POLITICO, Jim Messina predicted that Trump would exploit Sanders’ stamp of socialism in battleground states needed to defeat Trump, keep control of the House and have a shot at winning the Senate.

      “If I were a campaign manager for Donald Trump and I look at the field, I would very much want to run against Bernie Sanders,” Messina said. “I think the contrast is the best. He can say, ‘I’m a business guy, the economy’s good and this guy’s a socialist.’ I think that contrast for Trump is likely one that he’d be excited about in a way that he wouldn’t be as excited about Biden or potentially Mayor Pete or some of the more Midwestern moderate candidates.”

      “From a general election perspective, socialism is not going to be what Democrats are going to want to defend,” Messina added.“If you’re the Democratic nominee for the Montana Senate race, you don’t want to spend the election talking about socialism.”

    312. jason says:

      The question I would ask Messina is who exactly are the “some of the more Midwestern moderate candidates” he mentions.

    313. jason says:

      And of course, we are going to be talking about socialism no matter who is nominated.

      Zzzzzzz…what drivel.

      The US economy is doing well DESPITE Trump’s stupid trade wars, not because of them.

      The AFL-CIO agenda has resulted in the lowest manufacturing activity in a decade, and many industries have been irreparably harmed. The fact these losses have been offset by good results in areas not affected by trade wars is no reason to endorse the failed AFL-CIO agenda of the last 60 years.

      The WSJ article reminds me of Sergeant Schultz … I see nothing, I hear nothing, I know nothing”

      This is the true measure of a trade policy based on tariffs”

      It won’t matter because Dems will still get ~90% of the black vote.

    326. NYCmike says:

      “It won’t matter because Dems will still get ~90% of the black vote.”

      -Wes being so certain about this gives me hope that Trump will garner more votes among Americans who are black than in 2016.

    327. Wes says:

      Honestly between Spreading Bull and Yang, I’d rather see Yang appear in the debates. He has some loony ideas stemming from his living in the polder known as Silicon Valley, but at least he’s accomplished something productive in life and isn’t a reflexively dishonest aspiring pol whose claim to electoral success stems strictly from residing in a state too monochromatically partisan for a Republican to win (though CA is certainly that).

      I’ll be glad when Chief Warren starts campaigning for all those Dem Senate candidates in GOP states again so Republicans can tie them to her one more time.

    329. Wes says:

      Mikey, I know you’re an idiot. You don’t have to reinforce that knowledge every time you post. Trump got 8% of the black vote in 2016. Even if he gets 10% of the black vote and the Dem running against him gets 89%, the Dem will still get ~90% of the black vote as I stated above.

      For the record, I think Trump may get 10% of the black vote as disaffected some black Dems realize their party has driven out literally every black running for President in favor of a rich white man.

    333. NYCmike says:

      Wes is so smart he can comment on HHR…….the same like I can……..

    334. Wes says:

      Betting Dems will get roughly 90% of the black vote in a presidential election is one of the easiest bets to make, STM. Last time Republicans did better than 11% of the black vote nationally was decades ago. Trump actually took his case to blacks in 2016 and still only 16% of their vote. Every four years, Republicans think they’ve made significant inroads in that demographic only to see Dems still garner about 90% of their vote.

      The most significant change in black voters recently was ironically in 2012 when Romney ran better among younger blacks than Republicans had been running since the ‘80s. Now if that trend, which continued to a degree under Trump in 2016, becomes the norm, blacks will become a decreasing lockstep vote for Dems. It’s not going to cause Republicans to get some gigantic surge in black votes this year though. Lazily declaring “Much can and will happen” as if that’s not true of every cycle isn’t exactly a compelling response though—and provides no empirical evidence to refute my point.

    335. Wes says:

      I’ve actually worked on campaigns to try to help Republicans win elections, Mikey. Aside from hoping Kentucky Republicans would overthrow Mitch McConnell in the 2014 primary, what exactly have you done BESIDES post on HHR?

    336. Michelle Obama vs the DNC buffet table says:

      Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren in private 2018 meeting that a woman can’t win, sources say

      (CNN) — The stakes were high when Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren met at Warren’s apartment in Washington, DC, one evening in December 2018. The longtime friends knew that they could soon be running against each other for president. The two agreed that if they ultimately faced each other as presidential candidates, they should remain civil and avoid attacking one another, so as not to hurt the progressive movement. They also discussed how to best take on President Donald Trump, and Warren laid out two main reasons she believed she would be a strong candidate: She could make a robust argument about the economy and earn broad support from female voters. Sanders responded that he did not believe a woman could win. The description of that meeting is based on the accounts of four people: two people Warren spoke with directly soon after the encounter, and two people familiar with the meeting.
