    Trump’s Job Approval Drops Below 30%

    It has been over a decade since we saw a President’s job approval rating, no matter how unpopular they might be, sink to a level below 30%.
    Donald Trump has managed to reach that level on his way out the door in a new poll from Pew Research.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP – JOB APPROVAL (Pew)
    Approve 29%
    Disapprove 68%

    This poll was done January 8th-12th. According to this page from ABC News and The Washington Post, they show President George W Bush getting down to 23% shortly before the 2008 election, but he rebounded a little before leaving office and has seen his retrospective job approval rise since he left office to get up to 47%. I don’t think we will see a similar uptick for Trump with the General Electorate at large.

      Oh please. These pollsters have no credibility and we should not treat them as having credibility. If you can’t poll an election, you can’t poll anything.

      Heh! PEW seems to be the right name.

      “What some of your brethren said on Parler (mid-story):”

      -Dan,

      What about those horrible words/statements so trouble you?

      Personally, if someone has it out for me, especially as an elected representative, I would want them to publicize it, as opposed to shutting them down, taking away their voice, and driving them underground and into desperation.

      I wasn’t much surprised by those statements, people are angry and somewhat irrational. I say let them vent, but keep an eye on them. If they go somewhere near their target, then I could see “paying them a visit”.

      If they take action, the full force of the state should be brought down upon their heads……of course, I would apply the same process to Antifa/BLM, who actually acted out what they stated they would do.

    6. NYCmike says:

      “I don’t think we will see a similar uptick for Trump with the General Electorate at large.”

      -Well, as a person who supported the Democratic candidate for President in 2020, that would make sense.

    7. jason says:

      Garbage poll.

      ——————————-

      yesterday i got called a “conservative” over this issue!

      the question was something like, “what do you miss from yesteryear?” something like that …

      i said, “free speech, back in the day liberals though free speech was sacrosanct”

      a millennial replied, “yesterday’s liberals = today’s conservatives”

      i’ve become a reactionary!

    9. jason says:

      Dave can post what he wants.

      I will post

      Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
      Sponsored by SLANTED from Sharyl Attkisson

      “Friday, January 15, 2021

      The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll, Sponsored by SLANTED from Sharyl Attkisson, for Friday shows that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Fifty-two percent (52%) disapprove.”

    10. jason says:

      Of course, when I have my own poll, it won’t be sponsored by “SLANTED”.

    11. jason says:

      i’ve become a reactionary!”

      Hey, I became a “Trump supporter”

    12. jason says:

      jason to nominate Corker for a Medal of Freedom in 3……2……1…….”

      He certainly deserves it for exposing the Iran “deal”.

    13. lisab says:

      ———————————-

      i don’t know …

      as a conservative now, i suddenly think that we should nominate a bush and start a war in the middle east

      that suddenly sounds like a great idea! i am sure that will work out fine!

    14. lisab says:

      He certainly deserves it for exposing the Iran “deal”.

      we could blow up iran!

      we haven’t blown up that country yet!

      for some reason i don’t want to go myself … or to send anyone in my family or that i know

      i just want to send poor people to war …

    23. Bitterlaw says:

      NYC – SUPER BOWL WINNING COACH AND FUTURE HALL OF FAMER ANDY REID is a Mormon. Now you know the religion of 2 NFL coaches.

    24. Gordon Allen says:

      All year long I’ve repeatedly said Trump would win Florida by more than he did in 2016. Partly,that was because everyone I knew ( literally) who voted for him planned to do so again, plus a few extra.
      Everyone I know is RIPPED about Cheney, Mcconnell et al. Good thing no national Republicans are running this year, because they’d be buried.
      I’m sure Quinnepiac will come out with a poll showing Trump at 37% in Florida. Burn the paper it’s printed on. Didn’t they,or someone have Trump down here 12 points or so.As absurd as 17 points down in Wisconsin.
      One thing for sure if so: Wissing will headline it. I can hardly wait ( if the country survives) until 2024 when some of Wissings/ Bitterlaw’s type of Republicans run here in the Florida primary. Think Custer at the Little Big Horn.

      Andy Reid should receive the Joan of Arc treatment.

    26. NYCmike says:

      Now I know why Andy Reid never sends flowers!

    27. Bitterlaw says:

      Wes – Apparently, I have been designated by a successful and well off elderly man as having my own faction in the Republican Party. Not sure how I earned the ire of the old guy since I posted hundreds of times that I wanted Trump to win and voted for Trump. I also said repeatedly that Trump was a good President. I was going to send him a case of Ensure instead of a cream soda. However, maybe I should send it to a charity for the not well off elderly. Thoughts?

    28. NYCmike says:

      Here is the Cheers clip I referenced with Andy Reid..

    29. Bitterlaw says:

      Don’t be mad, Wes. The 49ers won 3/4 of that Super Bowl. Getting outscored 21-0 in the 4th quarter was a bit of an issue.

    30. Wes says:

      He’s so SUCCESFUL and WELL OFF, Bitter, he has to broadcast how SUCCESSFUL and WELL OFF he is to everyone he argues with on here.

      That sounds like a bit of insecurity to me.

    31. Wes says:

      Ah. I see Mikey’s here. I have a question for you, Mikey:

      Now that the numerous instances of the Mikey Maneuver have borne fruit and helped your rat-faced senior Senator, Chuck Schumer, become Senate Majority Leader, what is your level of elation on a 10 scale?

      I’m going to guess about 10 quadrillion.

    32. Bitterlaw says:

      Some people might think it shows a lack of class to proclaim how SUCCESSFUL and WELL OFF you are, but maybe the rules were different for people born in the 1940s.

    33. NYCmike says:

      Wes,

      I’m ready to spend my stimulus check!

      Is Tink working tonight?

    34. Gordon Allen says:

      Napoleon famously said ” it was better to be lucky than good”. Paraphrasing,it is better to be successful and happy,than unsuccessful and bitter( no pun intended). You two ( Wes and Bitter) are the latter.
      The point is bitter’s prescription ( and Wissing’s) is a GOP candidate who can appeal to Philadelphia ” suburbanites” is the ticket.
      Other than the fact that such a candidate couldn’t sniff the nomination in the first placed, electorally that’s equivalent to thinking the dog is going to catch the car,or Wily Coyote the Road Runner.
      Public offer; in March 2024 I’ll take Wes and Bitter to the best restaurant in Naples, famous for great restaurants,tab including drinks on me,and we’ll watch the Florida primary. It will be worth any cost, assuming a” suburban candidate” is still viable, to watch him or her get annihilated and finished.
      How can you lose?

    35. Wes says:

      Gordon assumes he knows anything about me.

      Heh.

      Seriously, Gordon, if you really have palled around with Ronald Reagan and acquired the things you claim, then the only reason you have to try to impress complete strangers on the internet is your own insecurity.

      Honestly I laugh at you every time I see all bluster and braggadocio about the things you supposedly have because clearly you have no real people in your life to grant your ego validation; thus you have to find something lacking in your real life in the virtual world.

      I’m going to be completely honest with you and shatter your fragile ego:

      You don’t impress me and never have. You’re just a joking trying to claim superiority to people you’ll never meet and know nothing on a blog as a substitute for gratification in your real life.

    36. Bitterlaw says:

      My prescription is for somebody who can appeal to everybody who voted for Trump as well as those he turned off with his self-destructive tweets and stupid fights with nobodies like Mika. There is no inherent reason that a CPA and an auto mechanic can’t vote for the same candidate. Reagan pulled it off before twitter or the internet existed and mobile phones were the size of bricks.

    37. NYCmike says:

      “You’re just a joking….”

      -Wesley,

      Tut tut!

    38. Bitterlaw says:

      Please find one post in 16+ years where I advocated for a “suburban” candidate or strategy. I have said that this pointless civil war in the GOP serves only Democrats. This contempt for people who vote for Republicans because they live in a suburb in absurd, baseless and ruinous.

    39. Wes says:

      That was autocorrect, Mikey. I didn’t expect that word change, so I didn’t even notice it till you mentioned it.

    40. Bitterlaw says:

      Wes – We are too young to hang out in Naples.

      https://datausa.io/profile/geo/naples-fl

      Besides, I don’t want to eat dinner at 4:30.

    41. jason says:

      Let the civil war begin.

      “But for many grassroots officials, the episode at the Capitol was not the inflection point that some Republicans in Washington assumed it would be.

      “No, Trump does not have any blame, but the Democrats certainly do, along with all the Republicans that follow with them,” said Billy Long, the Republican Party chairman in Bayfield County, Wisconsin, who said he is planning to break away from the GOP to start a local Trump-centric third party. “The Trump movement is not over; like Trump said himself, we are just getting started.”

      Republican voters, too, have largely drawn a sharp distinction between the president and those who stormed the Capitol, with 80% saying they do not hold Trump responsible for the rioting and 73% saying he is protecting democracy, according to polling released by Quinnipiac University this week.

      Even in blue states, Republican leaders find themselves still grappling with Trump’s politics of grievance. In the New Jersey state Senate, Republicans were split on a resolution condemning Trump for inciting the crowd that attacked the Capitol. The majority of Republicans chose to abstain, and many used their time on the floor to try to flip the debate to the protests against racial injustice over the summer and had to be reprimanded by the senate president for veering off topic.

      Even if Trump fades from political life, losing his social media megaphone and bully pulpit, his supporters say his message will be carried forward by a party remade in his image and with strong structural support at all levels.

      Since Trump’s 2016 victory, 91 of the 168 positions on the Republican National Committee have turned over, with virtually all the newcomers elected by Trump-aligned state parties.

      The president received widespread praise at a national party meeting held two days after the siege and was greeted with applause when he called into a breakfast gathering.

      Already, battle lines are being drawn between the Trump wing and those who would like to move past the president.

      Efforts to mount primary challenges to incumbent Republicans are underway in several states, with the encouragement of Trump. In Georgia, potential primary candidates are reaching out to conservative activists about challenging the Republican governor, lieutenant governor and secretary of state. Other targets may include Gov. Mike DeWine of Ohio and Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and John Thune of South Dakota.”

    42. Wes says:

      I’m just going to go back to ignoring him, Bitter. His ego feeds off the attention he thinks he garners by bragging to strangers on the internet, so I’m not going to feed it anymore.

    43. Gordon Allen says:

      Heh. I’ll up my offer. I’ll pay for your stay here, and give you a guided tour of the gated community where I live. The condition would be that pictures are taken and available to hedgehog if that’s possible.
      You a holes can bully others here; not me.
      You’re phony wannabes, desperate for attention. The offer stands

    44. NYCmike says:

      The simple fact that the impeachment was done within a week should have made EVERY REPUBLICAN, even supposed ones like “CG”, Robbie and MD, to say “Hold on one second, this is ridiculous, not needed and not helpful!”

    45. NYCmike says:

      Gordon,

      I’m not really sure what you are getting at with the need to show off all your THINGS, but if you are offering a flight as well, let me know when and I’ll put in for some time off. I’ll take some paid for days in Florida!

    46. Wes says:

      Does MD even claim to be a Republican anymore, Mikey?

    47. Bitterlaw says:

      Does that include white leather shoes and an ascot?

    48. jason says:

      You a holes can bully others here; not me.”

      I am not part of the bullying.

      I commend you on being successful.

    49. jason says:

      This contempt for people who vote for Republicans because they live in a suburb in absurd, baseless and ruinous.”

      The contempt elitist Republicans have for working class people, small business owners and rural voters is absurd, baseless and ruinous.

      And that is why a civil war is likely and needed.

    50. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason – I have followed your posts for years. From what I can gather, you are successful in what you do. You have never once proclaimed that you are successful and well off. That is the difference.

    51. jason says:

      stupid fights with nobodies like Mika”

      BS.

      Mika was making claims that Trump was mentally impaired, Robbie Goebbels was repeating it here and of course the MSM was running with it. If allowed to prosper, it would have a severe impact on Trump’s ability to govern.

      It was the fact Trump would not accept such attacks without retaliation that allowed him to survive for 4 years.

    52. jason says:

      Bitter, if Gordon wants to say he is successful, it is fine with me.

      I don’t think he is trying to diminish anyone else by saying that.

    53. NYCmike says:

      Mika was fair game. It is more evidence of the media double standard.

      The media, in NYC-area at least, now is reporting that there are NOT ENOUGH vaccine units, and they are reporting it in such a way which makes it sound like Trump is at fault.

      Trump, especially because of his negative personal attributes, NEEDED a united Republican Party to help him get past media bias and Democratic malfeasance. Unfortunately, too many “Republicans” thought the removal of Trump would make it a reset back to a different time. They are about to be let down in a big way.

    54. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason – You say that I live among suburban elitists. The Republicans I know do not express those sentiments that you attribute to them. Many of them are small business owners. Many came from working class backgrounds. Not many rural backgrounds her. How do you know what they think better than I do?

      By the way, how do you define working class? As a lawyer, I usually worked 60-70 per week for far less than you probably imagine I earned. Broken day by hour, it would be less than a plumber or mechanic. I had no useful skills so I had no choice. I actually envy people who build things because they can point to something and say “I built that.” Unlike me, who wonders if I should have asked a question differently, they also probably never woke up at 3:00 am and said, “Did I plane that door well enough?”

      Stop breaking people down into groups and trying to put them against each other. That’s what Democrats do.

    55. jason says:

      There is no inherent reason that a CPA and an auto mechanic can’t vote for the same candidate. Reagan pulled it off before twitter or the internet existed and mobile phones were the size of bricks.”

      Apples and oranges, that was a different era.

      The CPA and the auto mechanic can vote for the same candidate. The problem is the mechanic probably won’t vote for someone the CPA insists should be the candidate.

      And of course, you destroy your own argument by saying that your friends and neighbors were Rs that wouldn’t vote for Trump. They didn’t even have the argument that he was some extremist social conservative right winger, which he wasn’t.

      That is precisely the elitist suburban attitude I am talking about. Any candidate deemed acceptable to the working class is going to be deemed a “Trump”. That is why I have always said it was never really about Trump, it was just what he represented.

    56. jason says:

      The Republicans I know do not express those sentiments that you attribute to them.”

      You mean the ones who said they would vote against their own interests to get rid of Trump because “they could afford it”.

      Those Republicans?

    57. NYCmike says:

      I am not understanding the dispute between jason and Bitterlaw.

      I also find it hard to understand how any Republican could have sat home and not voted this year, or even worse, voted for Biden/Harris.

      I do think that jason is correct in thinking that many urban/suburban Republican-types have been slowly but assuredly turned towards socialism. They have been convinced that its simply not that bad.

    58. jason says:

      How do you know what they think better than I do?”

      I don’t have to.

      Delco

      Biden 206,000
      Trump 118,000

    59. jason says:

      ‘they have been convinced that its simply not that bad.”

      They are a product of the left wing academia and the left wing MSM.

      Bitter can pretend that they have the same ideology as the Trump voters but they don’t.

      And no, Bitter, lawyers are not considered “working class” no matter how many hours they work.

      You would be laughed out of any bar if you ever made such a claim, unless it was the 21 Club.

    60. jason says:

      Stop breaking people down into groups and trying to put them against each other.”

      Sorry, that dog won’t hunt.

      I have always advocated for a bigger and more inclusive R party.

      But a “let’s win back the suburbs” strategy is the fastest way to a tiny tent R party.

    61. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason – Election Day voting was even or favored Trump in Delco towns. He was overwhelmed by VBM which you claim was characterized by massive fraud. You posted totals that included, according to you, massive fraud.

      Please explain where in the numbers there is a category for contempt for working class/small business owners/and rural voters?

    62. Ohio Joe says:

      Hedgehog is becoming a joke with polls like these.

    63. Bitterlaw says:

      You mean the ones who said they would vote against their own interests to get rid of Trump because “they could afford it”.

      Those Republicans?

      Is that what this entire snit is about? I never said that anybody said those words. That was my interpretation of their actions. Even if your interpretation was accurate, where does that express contempt for the people you claim are disdained? I bought my house because we could afford it. Does that mean I am expressing contempt for those who can’t afford it?

    64. Bitterlaw says:

      I have always advocated for a bigger and more inclusive R party.

      As long as it does not include Bitterlaw.

      Fixed it for you.

    65. Bitterlaw says:

    66. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The Pew survey results are pathetic. It is a survey of 5,360 adults, only 4,040 of whom actually voted.

      According to the survey the reason Trump’s popularity is so low is because Republicans have turned against him — which contradicts almost all other polls that show Republicans continue to strongly support Trump.

      The Pew survey was a total joke — why it was put on the top of a thread is beyond me.

    67. Bitterlaw says:

      The suburbs, at least in the Philadelphia area, are leaning more Democratic because of people moving out of Philadelphia.

      Jason to say that many of the people who I know moved to Radnor from Philadelphia don’t exist in 3…2…1…

    68. Tgca says:

      Ok. Time for the EXCELLENT EXPERT to weigh in here.

      Suburban GOP are often but not always educated elitist metrosexuals who want to fit in with their neighbors of similar education and economic status because they have more in common with them then their rural or working class conservative brethren.

      What suburbanite wants to introduce their best friend who is a shift manger at Walmart or a dealership auto mechanic to all their upper class suburban neighbors at a suburban neighborhood gathering?

      How embarrassing would that be, right?

      I actually lived in and around the big city burbs my entire life so I can attest to much of what Jadon says about these suburban “conservative-lite” folks who like to speak one way but really think and act differently to some extent.

      These suburban metrosexuals are like many of the politicians in DC. They don’t dislike their rural and working class conservative brethren, they’re just embarrassed or wish to keep them at a distance, maybe because they’re afraid they’ll get infected with that “working class” disease and become so “common” like them or maybe some came from there too and they’re ashamed of their roots and the thought of going back is horrifying to them.

      These metrosexuals have slowly been indoctrinated and pushed to the left by their peers, friends, and families over times through educational and economic success in the circles they run in so it’s hard to blame them as they become brainwashed. The change is slow over time so they often don’t notice it.

      It’s like Hollywood. Many of the famous were not educated or economically successful before their fame but once they become famous, they anoint themselves as the upper and elitist class that look down on the working class though they do keep many about as their assistants, servants, and sycophantic entourage.

    70. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Given the low libido levels that many young, urban males have been shown to have, shouldn’t the name be changed to metrononsexuals? Testosterone levels of young males are falling at an alarming manner; am reminded of the Forbes article entitled: “Your Not The Man Your Father Was”. Of course many liberals would say this is a good thing.

    71. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca- You are so wrong that I feel sorry for you. I recant my wish that you stay after the 20th. While I am impressed by your personal story – at least what you post here – of making a good life for yourself after a childhood of eating lead paint. However, you have created a fake world that you can rant about. If that relieved your seething anger over your early circumstances – none of them due to anything but the choices of your family, I guess I should leave you to it.

    72. Tgca says:

      I should note that the big city suburban elitist metrosexual Dems also treat their working class and poor Dem brethren similarly as the GOP does but the difference often is that the conservative working class view the role of gubbermint in their life differently then their Dem counterparts who often rely upon and support more gubbermint and the well to do Dems push that ideology as a fail safe so the two Dem groups agree on that principle.

      Either way, both suburban elitist metrosexual Dems and GOP treat their political brethren with contempt and pity but really do not see themselves like them.

      I provided a classic example of this today in the last thread where Charles Barkley argued the well to do NBA and NFL players should get Covid vaccines 1st because they pay more taxes.

      In other words, they’re more important in society than the working class. See the video in the link below. It’s disgraceful how he sees himself and others of similar educational and economic class above the mere peons in society that ate more likely to contract and suffer from Covid than the well to do crowds.

      I think SDC is trying to say what I alluded to in 447 of the previous thread about male sensitivity.

      I prefer the non-pejorative term “girly men” but to each their own.

    74. Phil says:

      National Guard Troops stationed in Washington cleared to use lethal force. Well, that was quick.

      Where was this during the summer when leftist radicals were burning cities and attacking police and government buildings? Never ind. Those were the good riots. My bad.

      Shoot Trump supporters on the right? Not a problem.

      Antifa and BLM thugs pulling people out of their cars and burning and looting businesses?
      Of course not. Hell, blue mayors had to be prodded into agreeing to call out the guard to begin with.

      Welcome to America.

    75. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      74. “I prefer the non-pejorative term “girly men” but to each their own.”

      Go up to a young male metrosexual and refer to him as a girly man, then once your out of the hospital remind me of how non-pejorative the term is.

    76. Wes says:

      HHR looks like a Facebook group with all the arguing today, so I’ve decided to post something we can all agree on:

      Mathilda May was hot in Lifeforce.

    77. Wes says:

      Are you saying the 115-lb Titan, Tgca, can’t take a metrosexual in a fight, SDC?

    78. Bitterlaw says:

      Too bad I am mad at Tgca. I would tell him that Gordon Allen is giving away dinners in Naples.

    79. Wes says:

      Tgca would demand tofu and beyond meat patties, Bitter.

    80. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      78. Given most metrosexuals, its an even match up.

    81. Wes says:

      …and probably some Lucky Charms too.

    82. Bitterlaw says:

      82 made me LOL. Well played, Wes.

    83. jason says:

      I love it where Bitter accuses me of mischaracterizing him while he daily paints me as a country hick that has no idea of what a suburb is like.

      While it is true that I have lived in a more rural setting the last 10 years, I have lived in plenty of suburbs.

      And you know what, I better every one of them is more liberal than when I left them.

    84. jason says:

      bet, not better.

    85. jason says:

      I have always advocated for a bigger and more inclusive R party.

      As long as it does not include Bitterlaw.

      Fixed it for you.”

      Awwwww……suburban feathers ruffled….

    86. jason says:

      The suburbs, at least in the Philadelphia area, are leaning more Democratic because of people moving out of Philadelphia.”

      Yeah, and they are probably younger and more diverse too.

      Wow, Bitter admits the suburbs are becoming more liberal?

      Baby steps, baby steps.

      Now if admits these “people from Philadelphia” aren’t going to become instant Rs we will be getting somewhere.

    87. Bitterlaw says:

      They are more liberal because more liberals move in and not because babies born in the suburbs become liberals. The babies born in the suburbs grow up and move to the cities.

      At least Jason admitted that his knowledge of the suburbs is 10 years out of date so he can’t possibly know what he is talking about in 2021. Is it wrong if I tell Jason’s mom I caught a Jasonfish?

    88. Bitterlaw says:

      The suburbs are becoming more diverse? How could that be when the suburban elitists hate minorities? Why would they want to move to such an unwelcoming place?

    89. jason says:

      I think it is Bitter that is 10 years out of date with what is happening in the suburbs, not me.

    90. jason says:

      ow could that be when the suburban elitists hate minorities? ”

      Zzzzzz…. the minorities moving into the suburbs are wealthier and more educated than the deplorable minorities.

      I found the live feed of Bitter and Jason’s fight over the suburbs:

    92. Cash Cow TM says:

      It was not too long ago that Dems advocated and actually took over capitol buildings.

      My how times have changed.

    93. jason says:

      Bitter wants to dodge and obfuscate and weasel out of what I am really saying with a lot of red herrings like “suburbans hate minorities” which I never said.

      What I said in a nutshell is that a strategy where the suburban elites rule the R party will lose the voters that Trump brought into the party, including minorities. And that “winning back Rs in the suburbs” is not enough to sustain a viable party.

      I don’t really care either way. Just my opinion.

      The rest of what you say is just BS trying to squirm away from my main point.

    94. Tgca says:

      Bitter! Bitter! Bitter!

      You IGORENT metrosexual!

      Though we all are influenced by our early life experiences to an extent that may impact our view of the future and how we navigate through life, it is not a given that is always the dominant force on how we live our life.

      I need neither your pity nor praise on my early life experiences and challenges no more than I need your support for my future life endeavors.

      1st, I am amused at your stereotypical ignorance that I ate lead paint chips as a child, as that was never my recollection though there were many times we went to sleep with little to no food in our bellies as very young children and maybe those lead paint chips would have helped sustain some of those hunger cravings I recall as far back as a 4, 5 and 6 year-old ghetto trash half-breed Spic.

      I do recall we often ate oatmeal with evaporated canned milk stretched with water for breakfast and dinner for weeks on end because it was the only affordable thing at the time to feed 4 kids so perhaps you confuse the paint chips with the oatmeal chips.

      …and I do recall when my dope-addict drunkard father abandoned us for his cheap floozy and her kids, and was not around to feed us that my older brother of 9, 10, and 11 at the times would spend his Sat and Sun from 1st thing in the early AM to early evenings at the working class Pantry Pride in Newark offering to carry bags to peoples cars for spare change so then he could buy food to bring home to feed his mother and 3 younger siblings.

      That is what I remember about childhood poverty and many missed meals but nothing about eating lead paint chips…and though my brother did not turn out to be the best role model in his later years, one of the reasons I never regretted nursing him as a teenager in high school during his battle with cancer that took his life at the tender age of 23 because I remember as a young boy while other suburban metrosexual kids of his age were out playing with their toys and friends on weekends, he was hustling for change 8 to 10 hours a day to feed us so we could afford that oatmeal and canned evaporated milk.

      But since you bring up ghetto children eating lead paint let me EDUMACATE you on an example of your elitist suburban metrosexual views on child poverty and sustenance. There is some truth that young poor kids may have eaten lead paint chips as children, not as a source of meals but often out of habit of youngsters putting things in their mouth, and maybe because they were so hungry and had not had any food for a day or more it was instinctive for them to do that which often led to serious illnesses for them. I do recall peeling paint chips off the walls of the run down tenement housing we lived in out of boredom at times but again, I don’t recall ingesting them.

      The fact that you find humor in that and mock someone who MAY have experienced that is an example of your elitist view and how you see yourself better than others of lesser means.

      I am sure the Bitter clan never went to bed without food or suffered from headaches, stomach aches and weakness as a child because there was just no food to eat in elitist metrosexual Bergen County in the great Sewer State of NJ.

      I am sure the Bitter clan never found themselves homeless, living in shelters, or sleeping with newspaper and towels stuffed in their clothing at night either because they had no heat or electricity at times to help keep them warm in the brutal winter evenings.

      So please continue to mock the less fortunate conservative brethren you suburban elitists so look down on because the more you do, the more you make the case for the arguments we put forth about you suburban elitist metrosexuals.

    95. jason says:

      Pretty soon Bitter will probably be copying Robbie Goebbel’s lie that I said the “GOP should give up on the suburbs”.

    96. NYCmike says:

      Just saw some clips from the 80’s era movies “Stand And Deliver” and “Lean On Me” – both of those movies had one of the main messages about stop blaming others for your problems………when did that change?

    97. jason says:

      Tgca, you need to go lighter on that magic mushroom tea.

    98. jason says:

      I can’t wait for NYC to declare

      WE ARE WINNING.

      “Domingo Garcia, a board member and former president of the League of United Latin American Citizens, said Biden’s team told attendees of the meeting the bill would give 11 million undocumented immigrants a pathway for citizenship, with an eight-year wait as a permanent resident. Biden also plans an executive order instituting a “four-year extension” of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.”

    99. Trump says:

      Guys this is a Facebook group. The real app is taken down for the time being because Amazon decided to shut down their server. The Facebook Parler group was created by amazing people who fought to keep it but google, and amazon pulled them from the market. So again this app was created on Facebook but under a differnt name. If Facebook algorithms find parler, they delete it. So they new developers called it something else and outsmarted Zuckerbirg . See this group and speak freely again!

      https://www.facebook.com/groups/2557558197876350/?__cft__%5B0%5D=AZXSbewfpOpnkyny1wMDR_CBOybbUAWApHh4ohl2Zi3TfgQ1t1x7LLi2ILnqeHLOlyd3mYb_Qj2MAp0ai7rRhytLeeAb9uPuGLa7gZXq8l_tBxWK_kT5lYdPUWqGCUegfqreE5c0NqgumwAFiKDc_HPP1-Zd-jSxzsSYi-bm8dJ0kTpAyfVI8W9Fvwjdhar4mEY&__tn__=-UK-R

    100. jason says:

      Makes you realize how idiotic Cotton-Perdue’s 50% reduction in legal immigration was.

      The R immigration deadenders squandered many opportunities to arrive at a bi-partisan immigration reform bill that would have been 10 times better than anything Biden proposes.

      Like I said many times, all or nothing often gets you nothing. And I said the Dems are one election or one SCOTUS judge away from open borders and citizenship and voting rights for all illegals.

      But the immigration deadenders were bleating “WE ARE WINNING”

    101. Bitterlaw says:

      Like I said, Tgca, I could praise you for the hard work that brought you to where you are now but you continue to lie about me so you can F off.

      I am not going to apologize for my childhood. I was fortunate that my father’s parents valued education (and the GI Bill) so he went to college. My parents married and then had children. They stayed married. Incredibly easy to do when you don’t screw around or take drugs. Of course, mom did like booze and cigarettes so she died after 49 years of marriage.

      Want to talk about ailments now? I think I can win that fight.

    102. Tgca says:

      102

      Again, don’t need or want your pity. You’re a suburban elitist snob and just like other “things” you can’t admit it and as long as I post here and see your clueless metrosexual views, I will offer an alternative view.

      …and for the record, mental illness is treatable in many instances but since you refuse to acknowledge it, you’ll forever suffer from it.

    103. Bitterlaw says:

      I never said Jason wants to abandon the suburbs. He just wants to show his contempt for everybody who lives there.

    104. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      93. “It was not too long ago that Dems advocated and actually took over capitol buildings.”

      You silly cow. You want to talk about politics; don’t you realize it interferes with the major soap opera now taking place. So far the focus has been on childhood issues; soon the stories of victimization will move to adolescence and young adulthood.

    105. Bitterlaw says:

      You claim I am a fake conservative. Why do you say that?

      I was talking about diabetes. But you knew that.

    106. jason says:

      He just wants to show his contempt for everybody who lives there.”

      BS.

    107. Phil says:

      Damn, the natives here today are tearing each other to pieces.

      Let’s get back to something we can all readily agree on.

      The death of the GOP. Republican Party RIP.

      Now, everyone feel better?

    108. Bitterlaw says:

      Maybe Tgca can relate to being denied admission to West Point and being denied admission to the Army, Navy, and Marines 3 times. Maybe he can relate to dropping 5o pounds in three months before being diagnosed at 14. Maybe he can relate to 3 days in the hospital because he got the flu and his blood sugar hit 800 (where blood becomes sluggish and life threatening). Or waking up with an ambulance crew in the room because you woke your wife because
      e you had a seizure when your blood sugar dropped to 10. How about cataract surgery at 50 because diabetes is slowly destroying his eyesight?

    109. Wes says:

      Does anyone else need an antidepressant?

    110. Phil says:

      Jim Acosta tweeting that Trump officials are “looting” valuable items out of the WH.

      You can’t make this sh*t up.

      Hey, wait. When did CNN suddenly start worrying about looting?

      Lol.

    111. Bitterlaw says:

      I’m glad that Phil is so excited to see the rise of the Democrats. He used to be a conservative but I guess that was just an act.

    112. Tgca says:

      106

      I do not diminish anyone with diabetes so don’t try and use that as a crutch. I was referring to your constant self-imposed stress, depression and disturbing posts you make. You refuse to seek treatment for those so that is your fault.

      I know a few who suffer from diabetes at varying levels. I have an acquaintance who has worn a hip monitor for years but he lives a relatively happy and active life because he made life changes, manages his stress, eats properly, exercises, and keeps a good outlook. He even tested positive for Covid but luckily did not experience the symptoms since he is at higher risk for death from it.

      So stop wallowing in self pity and do something constructive if you’re not content. All of us face similar stressful issues at varying times in life but most try to deal with it where you use it as a crutch so don’t get annoyed when an observation is made on your posts about it.

    113. jason says:

      You can be a conservative and still be down on the R party.

    114. jason says:

      I don’t really understand the Tgca-Bitter fight so I stay out of it.

      But I hate to see an HHR fight that I don’t have a dog in.

    115. Bitterlaw says:

      Don’t be down, Wes. You got invited to dinner by an old guy. Tgca should be so lucky.

    116. jason says:

      It seems like the fight is about who is the most miserable suffering bastard.

      Why you would want to win is beyond me.

    117. Bitterlaw says:

      Or you cold be a conservative trying to save the GOP. Unless you think the Federalists, Whigs, Know Nothings or Bull Moose Party are making a comeback, the GOP is the only possible way to stop the Democrats by regrouping and winning elections.

    118. jason says:

      Gordon won’t invite me.

      He knows I am an aspiring elitist suburbanite that would love to hobnob at his golf club estate while my llamas go to town on his shrubbery.

    119. Phil says:

      If you are conservative and NOT down on the Republican Party then you aren’t much of a conservative.

      The “leaders” of the Republican Party are frauds, and half the Republican Senate Caucus is a joke….and don’t get me started on individuals like Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney, who play the part of useful idiots.

      A lot of so called “Republicans” have a lot of explaining to do. Fortunately, I finally woke up to the scam.

    120. Wes says:

      Every time I see a post in this Bitter-Tg fight, I put this song on. It’s appropriate to the argument:

      https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0gUyvyquLXQ

    121. jason says:

      Or you cold be a conservative trying to save the GOP.”

      I AM trying to save the GOP from people with your mentality.

      The GOP either deals with the fact Trumpism is here to stay or doesn’t.

      With or without Trump, the GOP voter has changed, or at least the segment needed to win elections has changed. And that segment is now a majority.

      I am not really a fan, it is protectionist and isolationist. It is not fiscally responsible.

      But I won’t stick my head in the sand and pretend it didn’t happen.

    122. Bitterlaw says:

      Thanks, Tgca. How selfish of me to have wanted to serve my country and have good eyes.

    123. jason says:

      If you are conservative and NOT down on the Republican Party then you aren’t much of a conservative.”

      Well said Phil, wish I had thought of it myself.

    124. Phil says:

      The Republican Party save us from the Democrats?

      In your dreams, bitter.

      When the leadership of the Republican Party shows absolute contempt for its voters your party is as dead as a dodo bird.

      Good luck.

    125. Bitterlaw says:

      My mentality is grow the party. You act like 74 million out of Trump’s 75 million voters were first time voters with a million Bitterlaws thrown in. Then you note 95% of the GOP voted for Trump. If 95% voted for Trump, the gap is not insurmountable.

    126. NYCmike says:

      jason is back to yapping about an immigration deal.

      There was NEVER any deal a Democratic administration would enforce, so any deal was just that…..a typical D.C. “deal”.

      What we have seen the last 4 years were things that actually worked – 1) a wall (anyone notice what the Dems are building around the perimeter for the inauguration?!?!) which has slowed the flood of refugees 2) immigration enforcement officers who ENFORCED the law 3) an agreement with Mexico and other Latin American nations to hold potential immigrants in their respective countries.

      As for Cotton-Perdue, as I repeated many, many, many times, the actual numbers could be negotiated, but the underlying principle, such as a country’s sovereign right to admit (or not admit at all) the amount of immigrants which they themselves deem responsible at any given time, is one I agree with, and I see no reason why any sane citizen would also agree with that.

      IN FACT, any Republican running for office trying to get votes from minorities and blue-class workers should have that type of principle to back up their immigration policy, as that message will definitely resonate.

    127. Bitterlaw says:

      There is nowhere else for conservatives to go if they want to fight Democrats.

    128. NYCmike says:

      I’ll repeat:

      ANY DEAL SIGNED INTO LAW WOULD BE IGNORED BY ANY DEMOCRATIC ADMINISTRATION.

      Prove me wrong. Past recent history says I am correct.

      Llama-lover, the floor is yours.

    129. Phil says:

      For every Robbie you gain you lose a Phil and a Jason.

      Not exactly a recipe for growth, bitter.

      Good luck, though.

    130. jason says:

      ANY DEAL SIGNED INTO LAW WOULD BE IGNORED BY ANY DEMOCRATIC ADMINISTRATION.”

      That could be challenged in court.

      It would be a lot better than what you have now.

      I am still waiting…

      WE ARE WINNING!

    131. jason says:

      What we have seen the last 4 years were things that actually worked – 1) a wall”

      What?

      Might as well use it for scrap.

      The Dems will not enforce it and will ignore it.

    132. jason says:

      Because of the all or nothing deadender approach NYC advocated here for so long, the WE ARE WINNING idiotic mentality, everything that “worked” won’t work anymore.

      Now the Dems will get everything on their immigration agenda, just as I predicted.

      Meanwhile, you were stupidly trying to reduce LEGAL immigration by 50%, when millions of ILLEGALS were crossing the border.

    133. jason says:

      “is one I agree with, and I see no reason why any sane citizen would also agree with that.”

      Yeah, I agree with that…

    134. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil – Since you and Jason quit voting, how am I supposed to grow a party with you? Jason said he was “never” voting again so there is still a chance he will vote.

    135. Bitterlaw says:

      Maybe Tgca is right. Just need to find a psychiatrist who can give me a pancreas and who can raise the dead. A time machine would also help – might still have time to command at least a cruiser.

    136. Tgca says:

      109

      Oh woe is Bitter! The world has been so cruel to you and has it out for you. No one has ever suffered more than you!

      Jesus had it so easy compared to you!

      Couldn’t join the military because he has a disqualification while many gays dishonorably kicked out and had their careers ruined or not allowed to join for their sexual orientation but that’s nothing compared to what Bitter suffered.

      …and let’s not get into this silly who has more ailments because it’s all relative dude.

      I’ve had 8 surgeries for debilitating pain in 7 years with multiple spinal fusions and limb repairs and enough metal in my body to set off the damn alarms at the airport.

      I’ve got 30+ scars from multiple surgeries on my otherwise flawless skin that I can’t even wear a thong to the beach anymore.

      I have nerve damage that has impacted my ability to move, eat and swallow and at time causes me breathing problems that led me to the ER twice the last year.

      Do you know how hard it is to get a date in the gay community when people find out you have difficulty swallowing?

      I live with varying level of pain daily for decades and go to physical therapy multiple times weekly and walk with a cane now, and at its worse can barely move and get dressed at times. I’ve had this disease since a young age at varying levels and managed it until I could no more.

      Try telling your boyfriend you can’t bend or get down on your knees? See how long that relationship lasts.

      Who knows, maybe all these ailments came from all the lead paint chips I ate as a starving child.

      I face the fact that I may have to be in a wheel chair some day or on a breathing machine if my nerve condition worsens and still live a long life that way because all my organs and medical stats are otherwise very good with blood pressure regularly in the 65 to 70 over 105 to 115 range so chances are the old ticker can kick on for another 40+ years…probably thanks to years of tofu and green tea I bet!

      But other than right now, I don’t incessantly whine about it and use it as a crutch in my life of what could’ve been.

      I often think:

      I could’ve been somebody! I could’ve been a contender!

      But I missed my opportunity to be a world champion gymnast or football player or basket ball player but it was not in God’s plans so I got stuck doing superb analysis after years of a quality EDUMACATION.

      I recently chose to leave work early to enjoy my life for now and live off my savings and $2,000 stimulus check, and if and when it ever gets unbearable, I have made arrangements to deal with it and not just whine about it…and if you wanna join me up to the last moment, I welcome the companionship because

      misery loves company

    137. jason says:

      Jason said he was “never” voting again so there is still a chance he will vote.”

      Robbie Goebbels said the sooner people like me and Phil stop voting the better.

      I think he is right.

    138. jason says:

      Do you know how hard it is to get a date in the gay community when people find out you have difficulty swallowing?”

      No.

    139. Tgca says:

      I think we need an HHR poll of who has suffered the most.

      Can we get a committee together to drum up the rules please.

      I think all voting needs to be done within a specific timeframe period and no early or extended voting or mail-in or vote harvesting.

      Can we do this before my extended sabbatical on the 20th please?

    140. jason says:

      “so there is still a chance he will vote.”

      There is also a chance I will win the 750 million Megamillions tonight.

    141. Tgca says:

      141

      Well clearly Jadon has never been discriminated against for gag reflex. It’s just not right but it happens people!

      PA Lt. Governor says that saying you arer contesting the election results is not protected by the 1s Amendment.

      You can’t make this sh-t up.

    143. Phil says:

      Bitter, you can’t.

      ….but it wouldn’t matter if we voted Republican anyway.

      Democrats now have complete control of all the institutions that influence. Social media is now an arm of the DNC….and they’re not even trying to be subtle about it. Open censorship. They don’t even try to hide it. Complete leftist control of the narrative of all news fed to the American people.

      They always controlled higher education and it has gotten worse if that is even possible – now have added dominance of K-12. They control the curriculum. Washington is no longer the father of the country. He was just another white slave holder etc etc

      They always had domination of the media. Hard to believe but it has gotten worse. Fox News now under the thumb of the Murdock snowflake kid and his whacko wife, and, boy, does it shoe. Drudge? He sold his site to lefties over a year ago. Hell, even talk radio is weakened for the right. Rush is terminally ill – he’s dying.

      Big tech? Forget it. They’re running the joint. Enough said.

      A real biggie now, of course, is control of the election machinery. Mail in ballots, – ridiculous postmark dates for acceptance – cancellation of signature matching – ballot harvesting and elimination of chain of custody guidelines. Michigan, Pa, Wisconsin, Georgia. Out and out Fraud in the actual vote count in Philly, Detroit, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Vegas. Etc.

      Hell, even the military is being brainwashed. I have a buddy whose so is in the military. You should have heard what his son told him of the PC crap they are throwing at those now serving.

      Corporate America? They’ve completely sold out to the left. Go against the left in any way and your company is boycotted. Companies toe the leftist line. They are cowed. Look at their ads.

      Campaign money? Billions available to Democrats from lefty billionaires. They swamp Republican campaign funds.

      I could go on and on, bitter. Bottom line is your party is a dead duck. In ten years the national GOP will be what the California GOP is today. Namely, a complete non factor. A joke actually.

      We will have one party rule in this country as far as the eye can see.

      Enjoy.

      I never thought a Texan could be a p*ssy.

      Tgca – At 115 pounds, you were never going to be a football or basketball player after 7th grade. It was not your nerve disease. If I was a better person, I would say I am sorry about your condition but you don’t want me to say it anyway. It would take away your joy in mocking me. If I was faced with your future, I would ask Jason for a case of apple butter, a truckload of scrapple and a book of recipes. You could beat him to the grave and you won’t be hungry.

    146. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      California is having an appallingly bad rollout of the vaccine.

      It is 49th in the nation in usage rate of its vaccination supply. In response, our clown governor Newsom increased the amount of people who could be vaccinated to include those below age 65. This does nothing to correct the poor administration of the vaccine effort. Los Angeles, San Diego and other large counties are refusing to vaccinate anyone other than health care workers and those in care facilities. The whole system is bottlenecked by lack of available vaccine supply:

      “California currently ranks 49th out of 50 states with a usage rate of 27.5%, beating only Alabama, which is locked into last place with a paltry 21.2% usage rate. For reference, the national usage rate is 38.8%, meaning California lags behind the rest of the country’s pace by double digits.”
      * * * *
      “The Golden State is in the same ballpark as Georgia (48th place with a usage rate of 28.0%) and Virginia (47th with a rate of 28.4%), and dramatically trails the other larger states. Of the nation’s six largest states, California is the only one with a usage rate below 40.0%”

      -Texas 49.6% (eighth)
      -Florida 43.0% (23rd)
      -New York 41.0% (26th)

      I am sorry about your health, Tgca. You deserved better.

      I wish my doctor had told me that I had cancer instead of diabetes. Only cancer has a chance to be cured. The other benefit is that nobody annoys you with clueless talk about how if you just had a positive attitude you could manage your cancer.

      Some of the advances in cancer treatments have been phenomenal. Of course some of the types the needle hasn’t moved much but a good portion have come a very very long way.

Companies make a lot from insulin, needles, monitors and pumps. People are brainwashed that it can be “managed.” I never (and unlike Jason I know the meaning of the word) donate to diabetes charities. I only donate to charities for cancer, MS, Alzheimer’s and suicide hotlines.

      ******************************************
      In WV yesterday, they announced the beginning of vaccines being available for people 70 and older.

      In my county, people started showing up at 6 a.m. for the event (only about 5 or 6 hundred vaccines–first come first serve) and the event started at 10 a.m. And the traffic jam was huge with others trying to get there to get in line.

      Still, WV is doing lots better than most states.

      IMO, Joe Manchin now has nowhere to hide.

      He will either have to choose as his master the people of WV (overwhelmingly conservative) or the liberal nutjobs like Schumer and Pelosi.

      He voted for the first Trump impeachment and lost ground politically. If he votes for this new impeachment of Trump, he will not win reelection. (unless the Dominion machines and fake mail in ballots plague hits WV).

      I think he is hard at it lobbying for some federal job in the Biden/Harris Administration.

Often their hair is filthy greasy and unkempt and colored red, blue, green, pink or purple and they bear expressions of angst and rage as if they’re in a perpetual state of hemorrhoidal discomfort… probably from glancing reflections of themselves in the glass storefronts before they smash and vandalize them….just look at your average Antifa rioter for proof of this.

      Once in awhile a smart liberal appears…but rarely…

      “Liberal law professor Alan Dershowitz was a member of President Donald Trump’s legal team during his first impeachment trial. Now that the House officially impeached Trump for a second time, Dershowitz said he refused to be part of Trump’s legal team a second time, assuming a trial in the Senate takes place. But it’s not because of anything the president did or did not do.

      “This is political theater, and I’m neither a politician or an actor,” Dershowitz told The Boston Globe. “So I don’t see a role for a real lawyer to play in this show trial.”

      It starred:

      Katie Holmes – who has really aged and is full-fledged middle aged now so I doubt Tom Cruise is jumping up and down on any sofas over her

      Josh Lucas – the wanna be Matthew McConaughey and uber liberal actor who grew up traveling the south with his anti-nuclear activists parents and knocking on doors in the same Obama T-shirt in 2008 to register voters

      It’s about overcoming a tragedy and learning to look at life more positively to affect change so your life becomes better instead of marred down in depression and futility. Think good things, good things come to you.

      I thought that might be helpful to many here at HHR during challenging times.

    174. Tgca says:

      Obama is deemed a constitutional lawyer since he taught a class on constitutional law and he is a liberal hack so Dershowitz must be correct then.

      Brilliant move by the Republican “leadership”. Schumer laughing his ass off. This should really be popular with Republican voters. Absolutely brilliant. Quick, guys. Send the RNC some money. They’re fighting for you, baby!!

      Wouldn’t it be grand if everyone at HHR could find 3 positive and inspiring thoughts about each other to share so we can rise above the acrimony and inspire one another and bring unity and kindness back to the HHR family?

      Here are some examples, how we can complement each others lives and make HHR a much more positive and rewarding place to share our thoughts.

      1. Jadon might acknowledge that even though he doesn’t always agree with Wobbie, he enjoys reading his intellectually thought-provoking drivel on why a smaller tent GOP is a winning coalition for the future.

      2. Wobbie might share he appreciates the respectful honest feedback Jadon provides him and how it has influenced him that maybe rooting for GOP losses is not always the best strategy to grow the GOP.

      3. Wes might tell Bitter what he appreciates most about Senator Menendez and his deep desire to tour the Sewer State some day with Bitter as his guide.

      4. Bitter might tell TG that he really enjoys all the mouthwatering vegetarian recipes he posts and is feeling inspired to changing to a healthy vegan diet in 2021 and substituting green tea for soda.

      5. TG will share he’s been so inspired by Bitter’s under-appreciated floral expertise that TG has been including varying arrangements of colorful pretty plants about the house he found in the Metrosexual Pretty Little Homes guide and how TG is now often feeling a state of tranquility surrounded by all the pretty flowers.

      6. MNW will acknowledge that despite their differences, he has great affection for Jadon and hopes to meet up one day for a dinner robust in lard, grease, fat, and salt and also have the opportunity to pet Lupita.

      7. NYC will acknowledge he and Wes can really forge a close respectful friendship and learn from one another by kicking back with a few beers and comparing notes on who are the most electable political candidates followed by trading buddy massages.

      8. Gordon can offer to take Bitter under his wing and mentor him into being a great success so Bitter can finally buy that Ocean City NJ beach house he’s always wanted and invite Wes to hang with him at on long weekends.

      The John Act – New law requiring all men to sit down when they pee.

      The Common Sense ‘Don’t Hate Kids’ Act – Will ban assault weapons and also the letter ‘A’ and ‘R’ and the number 15 so they can never be made again, and will confiscate all assault rifles to be melted down to make a statue of Ba’al.

      The Greener New Deal – Just like the Green New Deal, but with more Communism. Will instantly enact full Communism across the country.

      The Justice Act – Will add all registered Democrats to the Supreme Court, and empower women by creating “The Handmen’s Tale” where all men have to become pregnant and bear children.

      The Kindness and Uniformity Act – Everyone’s pronouns must be tattooed to their foreheads. They must also shave their heads and wear only futuristic grey jumpsuits.

      The Nutrition Act – Will limit each family to only one loaf of bread per week. Cannibalism now legal as long as you “eat the rich.” All foods must now contain a large dose of birth control.

      The Insurrection Act 2 – Will declare all unborn babies to be enemies of the state.

      The No More Racist Founding Documents Act – Will replace The Bill of Rights with The Bill of Lefts. Will also draft a new Declaration of Dependence.

      The Hurt God Act – Legislation to try and hurt God. Trump tried to warn us.

      Jason. Continuing impeachment after January 20 is patently unconditional. Since presumably Roberts has better things to do, he’ll probably say just that and not participate. Without him they’re can’t be a ” trial”.
      Congress has zero authority to punish a private citizen.

    184. Phil says:

      There will be no trial.

      A trial of Trump is down 13 points among indies in the Marist Poll. It will get even more unpopular after Jan 20 when Trump is a private citizen.

      Outside of losers Romney, Murkowski, and Sasse you couldn’t get Republican votes to convict – let alone 17 Republicans. They might get a few more given how out of touch the Republican caucus is but conviction is impossible.

      Mainly, however, it won’t happen because the polling on it sucks for Democrats. Wasting time on a senate trial when polling on it is bad isn’t something Democrats will do. It will look like something done for vindictive revenge (because that is exactly what it would be)

      The impeachment in the House does have a silver lining in that it ends the political career of Liz Cheney and probably the squish from SC.

      Saw the Clint Eastwood movie Richard Jewel today. Very well done sobering film. The movie extras with his mother talking about it is very touching to see this woman 25 years later still carrying this pain.

      Very sad how the FBI and MSM treated this guy and ruined his life. I could not imagined what this poor guy, who was responsible for saving so many lives, went through over the years.

      Watching this today is more important to ensure we keep those institutions to standards expected of the public trust placed in them.

      Though most in public service serve honorably, clearly, the FBI did not step up and do the right thing at the time to clear his name and acknowledge vigorously they erred, though I believe Janet Reno subsequently did offer an apology.

      I get that it’s hard to admit mistakes and there is the fear it could be used against the FBI in the future but this poor man was made into a societal pariah by the acts of a few selfish in law enforcement.

      Kinda reminds us of today what we see only there is no real self-reflection by some of the current cast of characters to admit fault.

      That being said, I still have to believe the rank and file of law enforcement are there to serve justice and deserve our support.

      #188-Tgca
      I agree with your review. I saw the Richard Jewell Movie many months ago and concluded that the more things change, the more they remain the same. To wit: the FBI and Media colluded in a rush to judgement to frame an innocent man and to destroy his and many other’ lives with impunity and without remorse. The reason given— BECAUSE THEY COULD !!!

    187. Tgca says:

      189 Sheep

      I think there was a rush to judgment but also the failure to admit fault because they don’t want to be tarnished.

      I think it’s ironic these days the MSM often accuse and question politicians about their motives and accepting accountability but I never see them own up to their mistakes. They refuse to admit fault, a recent example is the case of Nick Sandmann.

      191, “Project Dragonfly has already received global backlash, with Google employees themselves calling publicly for an ethics review into the proposed censored Chinese search engine. According to leaked documents, the search app will automatically identify websites blocked by China’s so-called Great Firewall. This includes information on free speech, current affairs and political opposition, plus historical references to specific events (such as the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre) and books that negatively feature authoritarian governments. Banned websites will simply be removed from search results, while no results at all will be shown for banned search queries. This will cover Google’s entire platform, including images, spell check and suggested search features.
      Amnesty International has launched a petition against the project, which it believes has the potential to severely compromise human rights around the world. “If Google is willing to trade human rights for profit in China, could they do the same in other countries,” says the petition. “Stand in solidarity with the staff members at Google who have protested the project and tell CEO Sundar Pichai to #DropDragonfly before it can be launched.” The campaign includes a scathing mock recruitment video, which advises would-be Google employees that they’ll need “absolutely no morals and be happy giving up people’s personal data.””

      There has not been a time during our tenure when we have seen this type of an outcry from our fellow Republicans, with the anger and frustration being palpable in the comments we have received. Our telephone has not stopped ringing, our email is filling up, and our website has seen more traffic than at any previous time.

      the next big thing that no one has really mentioned is that the internet service providers know what websites every politician or potential politician visits

    204. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      207. But, lisab, you do realize that Google allows you to browse in the “incognito mode.”

      “Google violated the privacy of “hundreds of millions” of users by tracking their every move with its Chrome browser, even when those users opted for the browser’s private “Incognito mode,” according to a $5 billion lawsuit filed Tuesday by David Boies’ Boies Schiller and Flexner law firm.”

      If you want confidentiality, use a combination of DuckDuckGo and the Tor browser, and you can browse anonymously. Unfortunately, being anonymous, you will not get the benefit of the quick Google search engine which can almost predetermine what sites you want to go to, so searching the web becomes more tedious. As in so many things; convenience trumps privacy. As Mark Zuckerberg has stated: “privacy is no longer a social norm.”

      This is so over the top that it’s fantasyland. Why does McConnell not impose discipline on the GOP Senate Caucus?! To wit:

      “Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) condemned the Republican Party for nourishing QAnon and other conspiracy theories in The Atlantic.

      He says the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol was “not a protest gone awry or the work of ‘a few bad apples.’ It is the blossoming of a rotten seed that took root in the Republican Party some time ago and has been nourished by treachery, poor political judgment, and cowardice.”

      “When Trump leaves office, my party faces a choice: We can dedicate ourselves to defending the Constitution and perpetuating our best American institutions and traditions, or we can be a party of conspiracy theories, cable-news fantasies, and the ruin that comes with them. We can be the party of Eisenhower, or the party of the conspiracist Alex Jones. We can applaud Officer Goodman or side with the mob he outwitted. We cannot do both.”

      Does anyone disagree with my list(and please,no Rand Paul)?

    208. Bitterlaw says:

      I disagree with the RINO list because I disagree with the premise of the list. Is the term based on whether they kiss Trump’s ass (the ultimate RINO given both his registration and political donations history)? They have all run and been elected as Republicans before Trump comedown the escalator. I disagree with their statements on the election impeachment. I am not going to look up each of their ACU ratings but I believe they all vote with their Republican colleagues 85% or more of the time. Toomey is absolutely a conservative Republican.

    209. Bitterlaw says:

      Ben Sasse – ACU rankings between 86 and 99. Yeah. Let’s give the seat to a Democrat with a 0 ranking in his next election. I don’t agree with every Republican’s vote or statement. I certainly don’t agree with the Deep State and QAnon nonsense.

      What else would you expect from a state that knowingly elected a corrupt child molester to the Senate?

    211. Wes says:

      Jerry Moran worked his ass off overtime in 2013 and 2014 to defeat a host of leftwing Democrats in the Senate, Sheep. You don’t really understand what a RINO is, do you?

    212. Wes says:

      Basically Sheeple declares any Republican who doesn’t think Trump is an infallible deity to be a RINO.

      I’m sorry, but while I vehemently opposed both of Trump’s impeachments I can’t base a list of RINOs strictly off how GOP Senators react to Trump.

      Why is Rand Paul–who has repeatedly been a stumbling block to conservative legislation because of his purity tests–not on the list?

    213. Wes says:

      Trump literally wouldn’t have gotten his judges had Jerry Moran not worked assiduously to recruit, shepherd through the primaries, and raise money for GOP Senate candidates in 2014. Sheeple says Moran is a RINO.

      Your list is the undigested part of food that passes through a bull’s digestive system, Sheep.

    214. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #213- Bitter
      Maybe you did not read #211 about Senator Sasse. He is the new John McCain.
      If he was serious about “reforming”(whatever that means) the GOP, The Atlantic would be the last publication he should go to to air his grievances.
      Lastly, you do remember his infamous reply to someone who tweeted him asking why he is still a Republican?– Sasse’s reply was” I ask myself that same question everyday!”
      Your reply that it’s an either or between a Democrat or someone like Sasse has grown shopworn. You said the same about Bob Corker in TN and he was replaced by Marsha Blackburn, a movement conservative, who defeated her Democrat rival by double digits.

      Sasse equals John McCain without the military heroism!

    215. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #212- Bitter

      “Toomey is absolutely a conservative Republican.”

      So you disagree with your fellow Pennsylvanian, jason, about Toomey, Mr. Gun Control.

    216. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Bitter and Wes;
      So who do I have wrong on my lists in #210 & 211 and who would you add and/or subtract?

    217. Phil says:

      Rinos?

      No.

      MSM spineless suck ups? Absolutely. In the case of Romney, Sasse, Murkowski, Toomey……absolutely. I don’t care how many conservative judges they voted for or what their conservative voting rating is.

      Any Republican in congress who goes along with this sham trial of a private citizen no longer in office, Trump or anyone else, is garbage. BTW, set aside the absolute ridiculousness of the charge – inciting a riot over a speech that did no such thing – but consider how strategically moronic it is. You go along with a show trial of an ex president? Republican voters are furious. You expect them to turn out in the mid terms after the establishment types have gone along with Pelosi, Schumer, AOC, and the usual leftist suspects with this charade?

    218. Tgca says:

      Wes

      For Christ’s sake, it’s Sunday!

      Can’t you put your loathing aside on the Lord’s Day and find some nice things to say about Senator Menendez and the Sewer State? Try it! You might actually feel better.

      We’re trying to bring unity back to HHR.

    219. Phil says:

      BTW, I predict there will be no trial. The Marist Poll yesterday put a stake through it when it showed it was underwater by double digits with independents. Opposition will only grow the longer Trump is out of office. Sadly, the only reason the trial will happen is because Schumer can read polls and will be no thanks to suck ups like Sasse and Romney who would happily go along with this clown show.

    220. Phil says:

      Trial will not happen is what I meant to say.

    221. Tgca says:

      221

      I guess our friend Phil is not ready for unity yet.

    222. Gordon Allen says:

      Phil: I’m with you. I don’t think Roberts would participate in any ” trial” of a private citizen ( knowing it’s Roberts but he has limits). No way could they proceed without the Chief Justice presiding required by the Constitution.
      This all red meat for the hysterical left and the MSM( redundant I know)

    223. Phil says:

      Yeah, Gordon. I think you are right about Roberts. As you said, even he has limits.

    224. jason says:

      If the Dems go for it maybe Trump can just ask SCOTUS on an emergency basis to stay it?

    225. jason says:

      Darn, forgot about my picks.

      Bills
      Packers
      Chiefs
      Saints

      Yeah, I know, the first 2 games happened already but since I picked the SB to be Bills vs. Packers, it is obvious I would have picked them. GFYs.

    226. Phil says:

      Well, the Supreme Court certainly couldn’t say he lacks standing given he’d absolutely be the one harmed.

      There won’t be a trial, however because unlike establishment Republicans, Democrats can read polls.

    227. Bitterlaw says:

      You must have me confused with somebody else. I don’t re all ever making a post about Corker.

      As for Toomey, he supported background checks. Zzzzzzz

    228. jason says:

      Toomey is another media whore scumbag, appeasing his left wing future employers by back stabbing the people who elected him.

      As Sheeple points out he sold out on the 2nd Amendment and became Bloomberg’s b-tch.

      Good riddance.

    229. jason says:

      As for Toomey, he supported background checks. Zzzzzzz”

      Don’t tell me, he is also for “common sense gun laws”?

    230. Bitterlaw says:

      Wes – Apparently, no conservative votes matter. Only statements about the absurd impeachment of Trump count now.

    231. jason says:

      I regret ever voting for Toomey. He doesn’t deserve my vote.

      That is another benefit of not voting anymore.

      You don’t make those kind of mistakes.

      His self serving, dishonest, despicable statement on the riots blaming Trump was absolutely disgusting.

      “Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania is calling on President Donald Trump to resign for what Toomey says would be the good of the country after the Capitol riot that was carried out by supporters of the president.

      Toomey says resignation is the “best path forward, the best way to get this person in the rear view mirror for us.”

      I have news for Toomey. I am glad “his person” will no longer be in the Senate.

    232. Bitterlaw says:

      So Jason confirms that Toomey’s “sell out” of the 2nd Amendment was supporting background checks. Good to know.

    233. jason says:

      absurd impeachment of Trump”

      So Bitter admits it is absurd, still gives R senate scumbags a pass.

      Okayyy….

    234. jason says:

      o Jason confirms that Toomey’s “sell out” of the 2nd Amendment was supporting background checks”

      Zzzzzzz….. all the Dem gun grabbers are for “background checks” and “sensible gun laws”.

      Toomey wants to demonize millions of law abiding gun owners in PA to stick his head up Bloomber’s ass.

    235. Phil says:

      Sorry bitter. Statements supporting this sham charade show trial from the Republican side of the aisle absolutely do “count’’ with Republican voters.

    236. jason says:

      supporting background checks.”

      PA already has background checks.

      Last time I renewed my weapons permit I saw a person being denied because their DL and recorded addresses didn’t match.

      “Anyone buying a gun from a dealer is subject to a background check through the Pennsylvania Instant Check System, which allows dealers and police to determine if a person is legally allowed to buy or carry a firearm”

      Toomey just wants to demonize gun owners, he knows terrorists, kooks and criminals don’t care about gun laws.

    237. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason surrendered his RINO hunter license the day he left the party. Since he is no longer voting, his opinions are irrelevant. Notice that I said no longer voting rather than never voting again. Jason’s “never” is flexible.

    238. WizardofCozz says:

      I can attest to Moran. Hes not the same guy he was when he was in the house. My buddy’s wife was on his staff in KS then moved out to DC to help him their. She basically says hes surrounded himself with Washington insiders to help run his campaigns and that hes completely lost touch with Kansans. Idk if RINO I’d the right word but if Pompeo challenges him I’ll vote for Pompeo and I wouldn’t of said that even 2-3 years ago.

    239. Bitterlaw says:

      Sorry, Phil. You are no longer a Republican or voter. You also surrendered your RINO hunting license.

    240. Bitterlaw says:

      Wizz – Let’s talk about important things. How is the team doing without your injured player?

    241. jason says:

      I understand Bitter’s position.

      He is a “loyal” Republican.

      I was one too, voting straight ticket no matter what for decades, until I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016.

      But as Bitter points out, I am no longer a R and no longer have to eat a “Toomey crap sandwich” so to speak.

      And of course, I never called Toomey a RINO, what I called him was a weak, spineless, gutless ass kisser who has no qualms about back stabbing the people who elected him so he can ingratiate himself with the MSM and his future employers.

    242. jason says:

      Since he is no longer voting, his opinions are irrelevant”

      Dang, is that constitutional?

    243. Phil says:

      Jason, it is now days.

    244. Tgca says:

      This is where Bitter is wrong on the issue.

      It’s not so much whether these politicians supported the GOP on other issues, as they should, as that is why they were elected.

      It’s either because they lack the courage to stand up and say this impeachment process is a scam and not within the confines of the Constitution or it’s because they wish to bastardize the Constitution at any cost to be rid of Trump.

      Neither of those are conservative principles and extremely dangerous to the Republic.

      Other than losing our freedoms, I cannot think of another more serious violation of the Constitution than to weaponize it and whittle it down to be meaningless and remove POTUS at will. It in effect this act dilutes the power of the administrative branch by Congress which itself is illegal.

      That’s the issue!

      There was no investigation, hearings, witnesses, or anything to determine the facts. Law enforcement is still gathering witnesses and information and we are now finding out it had Antifa folks there (a few have been arrested) and there may have been advanced planning by some that refutes the impeachment premise that POTUS incited a riot against Congress.

      What the Dems and the 10 GOP supporters did was create what is tantamount to a police state.

      Imagine if someone came to your house tomorrow, arrested you, and sentenced you without any trial or evidence.

      If any conservative is fine with this or supports other conservatives that are fine with this, then they are NOT a conservative. PERIOD!

    245. jason says:

      I saw a poll where as many as 35% of Rs might leave the party over what view as being disenfranchised by the party leadership.

      Bitter claims to want a big party, let’s see how it works out to deem their position “irrelevant”.

    246. Tgca says:

      The way I see it, there are 3 types of Republicans:

      1. Rinos

      2. Conservatives

      3. Mitt Romney Republicans

      Which one are you?

    247. jason says:

      Yeah, I think Tgca explains it pretty well.

      Maybe Bitter can explain how supporting removing a duly elected President a few days before he is leaving anyway on completely bogus charges jives with “conservative Republican”.

    248. Phil says:

      Sorry, bitter. I explicitly just said the senators in question were not RINOS in my previous post.

      I said they were pathetic MSM suck ups which they absolutely are.

      You are right about one thing, however. I’m no longer a Republican.

      Now for the fun part. Try winning elections without people like me. Chances of Republicans regaining power in the future were a long shot anyway. Now they are nonexistent.

    249. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason – You absolutely have the right to express your opinions. However, opinions don’t count as votes so you have made yourself irrelevant. Both can be true.

    250. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil – You already said you are not coming back. That is unfortunate. If there was a way to get you back as a voter, I would. Am I supposed to just give up and let Democrats run unopposed?

    251. Bitterlaw says:

      According to Phil, Republicans have no chance of regaining power. I guess President Harris…um…President Sanders…President Warren will be sworn in on Wednesday because of Phil’s absolute prediction on the Dem 2020 Nominee.

    252. jason says:

      Sounds ok to me.

      Bitter might have some trouble in court convincing a judge that “voter’s opinions” count more than “non-voter’s opinions”, but so be it.

    253. jason says:

      Actually, Phil predicted Harris would be President.

      He is most likely correct.

    254. Phil says:

      No, bitter, don’t give up your fight. If you truly believe you can make a difference in opposing the Democrats’ power takeover of America, by all means fight on.

      The game is fixed, however. The establishment DC Republicans don’t give a sh*t. They care about their own positions in DC and they are fine being the Washington Generals. We have one of those types from my own state in Cornyn. Very sad.

    255. Tgca says:

      Here’s another Mitt Romney big city suburban metrosexual GOPer leaving the GOP.

      Good riddance to bad rubbish! (As an EXPERT, I had to correct Jadon’s incorrect use of the phrase in 232).

      Linda Chavez complains about the GOP and chooses now, not before, but now to leave the GOP when the pressure is on from the coalition of forces: Dems, MSM, and Big Tech.

      Now she can do interviews within CNN, MSNBC, NYT, LAT, WaPo, and other lefty media sources who will reach out to her regularly so she can explain it all and they will say all nice and wonderful things and praise her courage, as she holds her head up high in humble gratitude all while nodding her head as they trash the GOP and predicts it’s demise from once being a “great” political party.

      I’m sure her decision has nothing to do with her being a coward and standing up to MSM, Big Tech, and Big Business to defend what’s right…and I’m sure it’s nothing to do with her potential earnings or ability to try and keep relevant with the MSM either.

      She claims:
      This man is the most corrupt, dishonest, and anti-democratic politician in our history. But for much of the last four years, the Republican Party leadership remained silent.

      Yet she gives no specific examples of her assertions.

      She goes on to cite principled conservatives. Ha! Take a look at this list. She, like some here do not get it! She does not represent 90%+ of the GOP. She represents the big city suburban metrosexuals and she is clueless about it but her words and actions speak volumes to the tens of millions that are sick of her ilk to do damage to the conservatives by sucking up to the Dems as their useful idiots.

      Perhaps principled conservatives will work to woo back former Republicans like me. Certainly Liz Cheney and her nine colleagues give some hope, as do Sens. Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, Pat Toomey and others who have indicated they are open to convicting Trump in the Senate.

      https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2021/01/17/leaving_the_gop_why_im_now_politically_homeless_145049.html

    256. Phil says:

      Also nailed the Georgia runoff election so there is that.

      Anyway, I explained point by point why the Republican Party is a dead man walking for the future in my post two days ago.

      You didn’t try to refute any of my facts given that your only response was to call me a p*ssy.

    257. jason says:

      Am I supposed to just give up and let Democrats run unopposed?”

      You might want to consider that supporting politicians bent on disenfranchising voters you would need to win elections might not be such a great idea.

    258. Phil says:

      “Perhaps principled conservatives will work to woo back former Republicans like me”.

      Don’t hold your breath, honey.

    259. jason says:

      Perhaps principled conservatives will work to woo back former Republicans like me.”

      Heh. the GOP is truly screwed.

    260. jason says:

      Bitter to propose to find “common ground” with Linda Chavez in 3, 2, 1…

    261. Bitterlaw says:

      Opinions do not elect people. Votes (and, unfortunately, illegal votes) do.

      Phil – I know you are proud that you came up with the Washington Generals analogy and will now, like Tina and her nicknames, use it repeatedly. However, the RepublicAns you hate have a better track record than the Washington Generals. Maybe you missed the Trump tax cuts and judges/Justices approved by the evil establishment.

    262. Tgca says:

      I think it comes down to whether these “so-called” conservatives wish to defend conservative principles or fit in with their friend, family, peers, and other metrosexuals doing great harm to the Constitution, as they look the other way.

      Don’t tell me how you support conservative justices, the right to bear arms, free speech, etc and then turn around and say I support the right of conservatives to wimp out on these issues when they count most.

      Face it! Removing Trump is not about Trump but damaging the GOP as much as possible to forward a lefty agenda and conservative-light politicians and their supporters that’ “wanna fit-in” with the big city suburban metrosexual are stoopid enough to fall in line with that strategy.

    263. Bitterlaw says:

      The most basic “common ground” is whether you want Democrats to win. If the answer is “no” the rest is mere details.

    264. Bitterlaw says:

      I’m off to evaluate players and draft my girls rec basketball team. Stay well.

    265. Tgca says:

      I would gladly give up tax cuts to preserve the Constitution while some clueless posters here, a.k.a. “useful idiots” want to find common ground with folks who want to purge conservative voters and ultimately redefine conservatism to the likings Romney and Hogan. The need to be liked and fit in for these GOPers will be the death of the conservative moment.

    266. Tgca says:

      267

      Impeachment to remove a sitting President on baseless charges is “mere details.”

      This is all you need to know about the future of the GOP.

    267. Phil says:

      The Washington Generals label absolutely fits.

      Starting lineup:

      center – Mitt Romney
      power forward – Sasse
      small forward – Toomey
      point guard – Murkowski
      shooting guard – Collins

      The Generals have a deep bench too – Liz, Cornyn, Collins, Lansford and the rest of the chicken sh*tters Thune, Cornyn

      They also have their own cheerleading squad George Will, Steven Hayes, Rich Lowry and the rest of the “principle conservatives” in the media.

      Good luck, bitter.

    268. Phil says:

      Trying a former president is a mere detail. Who knew?

    269. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Three(30 Trump Approval Polls were released today. His NET disapproval in the three polls are:
      CNN -27
      NBC/WSJ -12
      IBD/TIPP -10

      There are three pollsters who give Trump’s net disapproval at -20+. It’s easy to figure out. They are:

      Reuters/Ipsos
      Quinnipiac
      CNN

    270. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #271- Phil
      Great post. May I add:
      Coach- Ben Sasse(thinks he’s the smartest man in the room)
      Owners- The Bulwark News
      Hall of Famers- Jeff Flake, John McCain, Bob Corker, Arlen Specter the Chaffee Family

    271. Phil says:

      The good news is we have Manchin in the senate to save us from the left’s radical agenda. You all know Joe. The guy who now says he’s open to arguments making DC and and Puerto Rico the 51st and 52nd states. The guy who now says he’s fine using the 14th Amendment to boot two members of the US Senate because they dared to exercise their lawful right to object to the electoral count.

      Good luck, suckers.

    272. Phil says:

      Yes, Ben can be player coach.

    273. Bitterlaw says:

      Since I was against both impeachments and said the current effort to remove and convict Trump is absurd and wrong, you must not be talking about me. If you are, GFYs.

      The death of the conservative movement will be brought about by the failure of conservatives to vote. Anybody who wants to have primary challenges to the alleged RINOs but refuses to vote. If you refuse to vote, you are just doing what the Democrats want you to do.

    274. Tgca says:

      272

      Though he’ll have a hissy fit over it, this statement of “June rest is just mere details” by Bitter disqualifies him from ever being a “true conservative” so let’s archive that please.

      A reliable Republican supporter, yes.

      A true conservative, absolutely not!

      This statement reminds me of the wife who stands by her husband no matter what, including if he abuses or sexually assaults the kids.

      “No matter what he did, he’s still your father and helped give you life and always provided for you so you just remember that.”

      “No matter how much GOP politicians trampled on the Constitution and voted for a scam impeachment just to be rid of Trump, they still voted for other conservative causes you desired so you just remember that.”

      See the pattern here folks?

    275. Phil says:

      You don’t have to sell me on not supporting primary challenges, bitter. People like Jason and I won’t be doing that. The Generals are all safe.

    276. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Today’s FOX News Sunday Panel consisted of:
      1-Karl Rove-GOPe- GOP is in a Civil War. Will take years to heal.

      2-Kristin Solis Anderson-Never Trumper- Party has started moving away from Trumpism

      3- Juan Williams- Liberal Democrat- did not watch

      Now that’s what I call a diversified panel-NOT!

    277. Bitterlaw says:

      Mere details did not refer to the impeachment and you all know it. It referred to 2022 and 2024.

      Since I am a conservative who campaigned three times on conservative issues, I do not need Tgca’s validation or approval. Please do not forget to place all of my posts where I supported Trump in 2 elections (unlike Jason), opposed both impeachments, and said that the election was stolen and supported Trump’s right to challenge the election in my file as well. Then GFYs again.

    278. Phil says:

      280

      Welcome to the new Fox news, baby!

    279. Tgca says:

      …the rest is mere details.

      Sorry! Words matter! Remember?

    280. Phil says:

      Bitter, I don’t question your conservative credentials. You are no Robbie.

      I don’t have faith in the Republican establishment MSM suck ups that are bloviating all over the place about their moral superiority and “principles”

      Sorry, they don’t have a monopoly on principles. In fact, in my opinion, they have no principles at all.

    281. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #282- Phil
      Kristin Solis Anderson might want to re-consider her statement from today after reading the sub-headlines from the WSJ/NBC Poll released this morning:

      *President Donald Trump retains overwhelming support from Republican voters in the final days of his term, an NBC News poll conducted after a mob of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol shows.
      *Nearly nine in 10 Republicans approve of Trump’s job performance, according to the survey, a figure virtually unchanged from just ahead of the November contest.
      *The poll, which comes as Trump faces an unprecedented second impeachment trial in the Senate, suggests that Republican support for the president did not waver as a result of the Jan. 6 attack in Washington in which Trump supporters violently delayed the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.

      No “Republcan/ Conservative” who does,and any Republcan who condones that isn’t one,and true conservatives have the obligation to vote against them. Period. Full Stop.
      Btw those polls aren’t far from the numbers MSM polls routinely showed ( always low) pre-election,amazing considering the relentless barrage against Trump.
      They confirm what I hear from people I’ve talked to; Trump has in the real world not lost any of his base. The Republcan Party surely has… Big Time

      Here’s a website posting the names of all those arrested at the Capitol with age and state, where known. Many of the charges are curfew violations but hey, let’s dox them – no intimidation planned here.

      No concern here by the GOP-lite contingency about Big Tech going after conservatives.

      Funny, they can’t be held accountable but I am obligated to keep voting for them?

      Nah, the beauty of no longer being a Republican is that they no longer automatically get my voted, they had to earn it.

      But now that I feel like my vote doesn’t count for anything, nobody gets it.

      So if you get your wish and the 10 alleged RINOs are replaced by Democrats and the Senate has 60 Democrats you win, right?

      Another way of looking at it, is:

      So if conservative-lite folks get their wish and the 10 alleged RINOs remain, then nothing changes and the Dems still do what they want as the RINOs tag along to rub elbows in DC and the REAL conservative voters get even more demoralized due to GOP sellout and give up on voting.

      Only the Big City suburban metrosexual conservative-lites continue voting to destine the GOP to minority status forever with Dems in complete control of everything.

      But hey! I voted for conservative-lites and my vote meant nothing in the small tent created by RINOs so that’s winning!

      Like others, I’m past the you have to vote for a LiZ Cheney because the Democrat will be worse stage. Perhaps next we can run somebody I actually like.
      You have no idea how ruinous these RINO’s are to the GOP.
      Either THEY’RE purged,or the Party is extinct. A binary choice is at hand. I just told Rick Scott to pound sand in a fundraising request. And not to count on my vote for Senator in the future unless he unequivocally separates himself from the RINO’s.All of them.

    295. Tgca says:

      Trump approval still unchanged after 2 months, as Rasmussen also shows in addition to this NBC poll. This proves all this impeachment hoax is political theater concocted by Dems, MSM, Big Tech, Never Trumpers, and now cowardly and ungrateful conservative-lites.

      With nearly 90% GOP approval and 80% of them, including 30% of indies, thinking the election was stolen, let’s follow Toomey, Romney, Murkowski, Sasse, and friends who represent the other less than 10% of the GOP but 95% of Dems who think Trump is a Bad Bad Evil Man that needs to be removed from office without a fair trial so the GOP brand can further be ostracized and condemned.

      That’s how GOP can win elections people!

      Nope! These are not RINOs. These are true conservatives like their Big City suburban metrosexual friends.

      I used to think like that. I voted like that for decades.

      But the Liz Cheney’s of the R party didn’t return the favor, did they?

      They supported a corrupt Joe Biden and a socialist agenda.

      So now Bitter is worried about them?

      Sorry, did he confront his R friends that voted for Biden because they “could afford the higher taxes”.

      Nah, but he is comfortable calling us quitters.

      While Bitter carries Liz Cheney’s water, here is something to really be worried about.

    301. New York City says:

      President-elect Joe Biden’s decision to immediately ask Congress to offer legal status to an estimated 11 million people in the country has surprised advocates given how the issue has long divided Democrats and Republicans, even within their own parties.

      Biden will announce legislation on his first day in office to provide a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants in the United States illegally, according to four people briefed on his plans.

      Are we still WINNING?

      Therefore, any conservative who does not vote has abandoned conservatism to become a useful tool of the Democrats.”

      Watching the establishment Republicans stick their heads in the sand as blatant censorship of conservatives and conservative thought is throttled up by big tech is kind of amusing. Not a peep out of Thune, Toomey, Cornyn, etc.

      These fools are not worried about it because they think it is all directed at Trump. Fools. It has already gone well beyond that, and Biden hasn’t even taken office yet.

      Yep, this are the Republican Party leaders that are going to protect us from excesses of the radical Democratic agenda.

      Uh-oh! Rand is gonna earn the wrath of Mitchie on Monday.

      Imagine you go for a job. They check your references. You are denied the job because your degree has been rescinded and you no longer meet the educational requirements.

      These university acts would deny you the ability to earn a living. You may have paid $200,000 for an education but now your degree is worthless, you can’t be certified, and you can’t practice your chosen profession…simply because of your political support.

    313. jason says:

      Bitter says he is for a big tent R party.

      Except he writes hundreds of posts defending the small tent Republicans.

      That is why he has zero credibility to call others “quitters”.

    314. jason says:

      Toomey is attacking the Trump supporters as terrorists, basically advocating for the smallest R tent possible.

      Now are you ok with the fact your purported support for a “big tent R party” is a crock of crap?

      Toomey says resignation is the “best path forward, the best way to get this person in the rear view mirror for us.”

      Toomey also says that Trump’s role in encouraging the riot is an “impeachable offense.”

      Toomey is the second GOP senator to call for Trump to step down, joining Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

      Toomey raised eyebrows with comments made during a Fox News interview Saturday, as well.

      “I do think the president committed impeachable offenses,” the Republican lawmaker from Pennsylvania said during an segment on “The Journal Editorial Report.”

    319. Bitterlaw says:

      No. What I posted is very clear. Sorry you are not able to understand it. You claim that you want to help me get elected but lie about what I have said and insult me as a liar. Gordon Allen lies about me, too, but at least he offered to buy me dinner.

      As an EXPERT, I know that some are so desperate to win they will sacrifice all principles and become useful idiots to the Dems and the MSM and get little to nothing in return while driving away conservatives.

      This will shrink and not expand the GOP. It will drive away GOP voters for a generation or more.

      Anyone that supported Trump’s impeachment succumbed to political mob rule and violated the principles of the Constitution that in essence weakened the Separations of Powers.

      It now set a precedent that the House can impeach a President without any evidence, witnesses, or hearings.

      Anyone that supports those that voted for Trump impeachment are NOT conservatives.

      Anyone that supports Sasse, Toomey, Romney, Cheney, et. al are useful idiots and do not deserve to be called conservatives.

      This rationale is tantamount to those that supported the Catholic Church’s actions during the child sex scandals. Willful knowledge and turning your head is extreme violations of principles and there is no excuse under circumstances to support such action. None!

      For more than 4 years, the Democrats said it was fine to claim and believe the 2016 election was stolen and there was foreign interference, even if there were zero sworn affidavits or other proof of any alleged voting irregularities.

      But now the Dems say it is sedition and jailable to say the 2020 election was stolen, even when there are 2,000 or more sworn affidavits of allegations claiming election fraud and irregularities.

    338. Cash Cow TM says:

      ***THEN AND NOW***

      In 2001 Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif. objected to the vote in Congress to accept and ratify the results of the Electoral College in the 2000 election. In 2005 Then-Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, D-Ohio, and then-Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., together objected to ratifying the ECV and challenged Bush’s 2004 victory in Ohio on grounds of alleged voter irregularities. In 2017, Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash. objected to the certification of the ECV of the 2016 election. All the above were permissible objections via Congressional rules, were deemed to be without merit, and congress voted to accept the EC results of 2000, 2004 and in 2016 despite the objections by one or two members of Congress. These objections were considered no big deal, but their objection praised by a number of elected Democrats.

      In 2021, the same people who supported the objections of the ECV in earlier years now say that the more than a dozen U.S. senators/senators elect and well over 100 House of Representatives members who said they plan to object to the certification of the 2020 Electoral College votes—including 6 Republican Senators and 120 Republicans in the House of Representatives who voted to objected to the AZ 2020 Electoral College vote and the 7 Republican Senators and the 137 Republicans in the House who voted to object to the certification of the PA 2020 Electoral College votes were committing acts of treason and should be removed from office. ****************************

      For one group, it was OK for Dems to spend $25 Million dollars over several years to investigate charges against President Trump, even though top officials at the FBI knew that the investigation was based on the totally discredited and fabricated Steele dossier and FISA warrants to surveille Trump were obtained with information provided by FBI that the FBI knew were false.

      The same group now says it is NOT acceptable to spend time and money to investigate the allegedly illegal activity discovered on Hunter Biden’s laptop.

      But the left is silent now that the A.C.L.U. has come out on President Trump’s side on how Big Media (Twitter, YouTube, etc.) have—in the opinion of the ACLU—unconstitutionally pulled the plug on Trump’s use of their social media platforms. __________________

      In close elections in 2000 and in 2016 many Democrats said it was understandable that Gore and Hillary Clinton should not concede the election.

      But now, when Trump refuses to concede the election and say he lost, that is unacceptable. Even though nearly 40% of people in America–including 67% of Republicans, 31% of Independents and 17% of Democrats—think that the 2020 election outcome was a result of fraud—and the election result in the Electoral College was decided by 11,000 votes in GA, 11,000 in AZ and 20,000 votes in WI out of a total of 12,400,000 votes cast in those 3 states.

      ****************************

      Over the past bunch of years, Dems felt it was permissible for protesting groups to take over various capitols, such as in WI or in partial takeovers of government buildings, etc. such as what happened in Portland for many weeks. And it was apparently OK for people to try to disrupt the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh.

      Now, if a group other than the left commits such action, is considered verboten.

      As opposed to people who have convinced themselves that the best way to challenge Democrats is to stop voting completely so the Democrats win? As opposed to people who think the best way to make the Republican party more conservative is to not run for office themselves or support other candidates they view as superior to the alleged RINOs by not voting? Brilliant strategy.

    345. Tgca says:

      349

      Yes. We need to elect more people like FL Congressman Foley to keep GOP seats so Dems don’t capture the seats.

    346. Bitterlaw says:

      Yes. We need to elect more people like FL Congressman Foley to keep GOP seats so Dems don’t capture the seats.

      This is like when Corey would post absurd ideas to discredit Republicans. “So if a Nazi serial killer who ate aborted fetuses and drank the blood of rabbis was running against Nancy Pelosi….”

      Tgca is not talking about purging one seat. He and the Quitter Chorus are ready to hand 10 Senate seats to the Dems. Jason used to mock JulStol for this idea that he now embraces.

      https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9157067/Philadelphia-police-arrest-two-men-connection-fatal-shooting-college-graduate.html

      Philadelphia’s DA (elected with Soros’ money) will probably plead this down to a $25 fine so he can get back to focusing on charging police for excessive force during the riots this past Summer.

    348. jason says:

      Should Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, Barrett and 200 Federal judges resign because Toomey voted to confirm them?”

      Wow. We now should admire a scumbag like Toomey because he actually voted for the judicial nominees from his own party?

      What an admirable man…

    349. jason says:

      Great then and now posts, Cow.

    350. Bitterlaw says:

      Does jason really want me to post hundreds of Toomey’s conservative votes?

    351. jason says:

      What is amazing is that you think we should be thankful for them…

    352. jason says:

      The fact you are here defending Toomey’s inexcusable behavior shows how clueless you are about most R voters.

    353. jason says:

      Only 8% of Republicans agree with “conservative Republican” Toomey’s impeachment view.

      Sounds like a great “common ground” start.

    354. jason says:

      Toomey accepted fraud in PA and effectively disenfranchised millions of R voters, his constituents.

      Then he wants to support a ridiculous impeachment effort against the President just for show, again back stabbing his supporters.

      But according to Bitter, he needs to get a pass because as a Republican he actually voted as a Republican “hundreds of times”.

      You can’t make this sh-t up.

    355. Tgca says:

      355

      So now we need to be thankful that a politician votes the way he is expected to vote by the constituents who elected him.

      What’s next?

      Your employer should be grateful for you doing the job they pay you to do?

    356. Bitterlaw says:

      I said I disagreed with Toomey’s statements about impeachment. In Jason’s mind, that means I am defending Toomey’s statements.

      Blatant lie by Jason. Is there no honor among A-holes anymore?

    357. Phil says:

      Thankful for Toomey?

      Uh, no.

      He wants to try a private citizen.

      Toomey can kiss my ass.

    358. Bitterlaw says:

      I would ask jason to show me the post where I defended Toomey’s statements on impeachment but I don’t want to waste his time looking for something I did not post.

    359. Phil says:

      I am grateful for the A-Holes. Now that I’m no longer a Republican it is nice to still have an organization to be part of.

    360. jason says:

      I am hardly a Toomey hater. I have met him several times, had a couple conversations with him. I voted for him, campaigned for him, contributed to him. His teaming up with Joe Manchin and Mike Bloomberg to scapegoat law abiding gun owners was terrible, but nobody is perfect.

      I find his conduct on the election fraud and the impeachment completely despicable, inexcusable, and indicative of a complete lack of character.

      The fact he “voted for Kavanaugh” doesn’t change that one bit.

    361. jason says:

      I would ask jason to show me the post where I defended Toomey’s statements”

      Zzzzzz…..

      So you just came up with “Toomey is a conservative Republican” out of the blue?

      Let’s get real.

    362. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil – You will always be an A-hole. Definitely more so recently.

    363. Bitterlaw says:

      So Jason admits I did not defend Toomey’s comments on impeachment. He could have said it in fewer words.

      Sheeple started today’s civil war by calling Toomey a RINO. Toomey is not a RINO but he is a conservative Republican.

    364. Tgca says:

      365

      Agreed!

      Remember, politicians are elected with the expectation that they are representing the will of their constituents and not their own self interests.

      When constituents realize their politicians no longer represent them, they vote them out or force them out because they are there to serve their constituency and not themselves.

      Toomey has entered that realm of self-interest and if he were not retiring, he would most likely be forced out or voted out.

      I’m glad that Bitter thinks politicians are there to enrich themselves over the needs of their constituents.

      Maybe that’s why Bitter wants to be a Congressman so bad – so he too can line his own pockets and benefit over the needs of his constituents.

    365. jason says:

      Toomey was out there front and center saying there was no fraud in PA, 3 days after the election.

      Then he called Biden to congratulate him and kiss his ass.

    366. Gordon Allen says:

      Bitterlaw is clear; vote for RINO’s because they’re not Democrat’s. That ship has sailed for good. It no longer flies.
      In 1964 after Goldwater lost badly, the good news was the purging of the Rockefeller wing.
      In the next 24 years the GOP won the Presidency 20 of the 24 years,and barely lost the election to carter with the zero Ford running, and won 4 by landslides.
      Then came the Bushes. Time to purge again
      Rino’ s are self centered hacks with no principles at all,other than vote for me because the Democrat is worse.
      No more. Over completely. Get on board,or get off the train. Getting rid of the ” Republcan” tag will be a plus,as many simply can’t historically pull that lever. I have family like that in the Northeast.
      Under another banner some are reachable, especially after the coming Biden disaster.

    367. jason says:

      So Jason admits I did not defend Toomey’s comments on impeachment. He could have said it in fewer words.”

      I did nothing of the sort.

      Actually the opposite, the “Toomey is a conservative Republican” is exactly that, a defense of his comments on impeachment.

      Thank you, jason.

      Wondering if I missed anything….

    372. jason says:

      Toomey is scum.

      “conservative Republican” my ass.

    373. jason says:

      Toomey is being attacked here for his despicable support for Trump’s impeachment and for his inexcusable failure to condemn fraud in PA.

      In response, Bitter says he is a “conservative Republican, and he has voted “conservative in the past”.

      But nooooooo, Bitter is not defending Toomey.

      We are in lalaland now.

    374. jason says:

      Let’s say I said Stalin killed 60 million people.

      In response, Bitter says “Stalin loved kittens and puppies”.

      But then claims “I wasn’t defending Stalin”.

      Yeah, about as credible.

    375. jason says:

      Bitter to say I am saying he is a Stalin admirer in 3, 2, 1…..

    376. Bitterlaw says:

      GA – Considering you are trying to purge the party with people who want to elect Democrats by not voting you may want to talk to them about that strategy- especially the wants who support primary challengers but won’t vote for them.

      Tgca- Your lies never stop. My phone number is on this thread. Call anytime if you want to lie or accuse me of things directly.

    377. Tgca says:

      In Bitter’s world, the child molesting priests were also good Catholics because most of the times they did good deeds for the church and the parish. The child molestation was just something he disagreed with them on but otherwise, they were good Catholics.

      He just has no concept of gray. It’s all black and white to him.

      Toomey voted for conservatives judges so he must be a conservative too. Doesn’t matter he voted to trample the Constitution in a sham impeachment process in attempts to i remove the President.

    378. Bitterlaw says:

      Toomey is a conservative Republican. I disagree with his statements on the impeachment AND I have said dozens of times that the election was stolen and that Trump should not have been impeached either time.

      Jason to lie in 3…2…1…

    379. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca- I have posted hundreds of times that those priests should have been executed on Good Friday every year. The priest who tried to molest me should have been.

    380. jason says:

      Bitterlaw is clear; vote for RINO’s because they’re not Democrat’s. That ship has sailed for good. It no longer flies.”

      I used to believe that myself.

      But they did not return the favor. They voted for Biden and supported his far leftist agenda.

      Now Bitter wants us to find “common ground” with his wealthy R friends and neighbors who told him they were voting for Biden “because they could afford to pay more taxes”.

      No thanks.

    381. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca wants to elect Democrats. He should own it.

    382. jason says:

      Doesn’t matter he voted to trample the Constitution in a sham impeachment process in attempts to i remove the President.”

      Not a problem, Tgca.

      See, when you are a “conservative Republican” you get a free pass on everything.

    383. Phil says:

      A post President show trial of private citizen Trump will be the nail in the coffin for the Republican Party.

      Republican voters will be furious.

      They already are.

    384. jason says:

      When you are a “conservative Republican” it is ok to trample on the 2nd Amendment too.

      It is also ok to accept fraud in your own state and to disenfranchise the people who elected you.

    385. Tgca says:

      Bitterlaw is already a Democrat in training. How long until he starts justifying why he’s voting with his suburban Big City metrosexuals for Dems – going the Michael route who did a 180 in a couple of years.

      Don’t kid yourselves folks.

      Bitter is no conservative!

      His support of conservatives betraying the GOP aligns him with these so-called conservatives.

      His mental illness has kept him from admitting the inevitable but soon he will break out like Michael and find excuses to support Dem policies. Wait and see!

    386. Bitterlaw says:

      Now Bitter wants us to find “common ground” with his wealthy R friends and neighbors who told him they were voting for Biden “because they could afford to pay more taxes”.

      I never said they said that. That was my interpretation. Are you ever going to tell the truth anymore? Do you want the phone number so you can lie to me directly? If you had FB it will be incredibly easy to find me. Or send Dave a message and I will give to him.

      Jason used to make fun of Tina for calling everybody a RINO. He used to make fun of JulStol for wanting a Senate of 99 Democrats and 1 true conservative. He pasted Never Trump literally thousands of times. Now he just lies and lies about me. Why? There is plenty to disagree about without lying.

    387. Bitterlaw says:

      66 and 70

    388. Phil says:

      The actions of Romney, Sasse, Toomey, Murkowski with regards to a post presidential show trial will elect Democrats, bitter. You have it backwards.

      Your Republican Party needs turnout in 2022. Giving the finger to the base support by supporting this sham trial is the most stupid political play I have ever seen – but establishment DC Republicans have never been very bright. They also can’t help their TDS and their disdain for his voters.

    389. jason says:

      I never said they said that. That was my interpretation.”

      LOL

    390. jason says:

      Now he just lies and lies about me.”

      I am just pointing out your astounding hypocrisy.

      That is not “lying”.

      I am also pointing out you are backing the wrong horses.

    391. Tgca says:

      391

      Bitter wants everyone to call him or come to his house and explain to him why he is no real conservative.

      Sounds like he is lonely and wants company.

      Normally, I’d take him up on the offer to hang and get through his thick skull why he is no conservative but I have already scheduled scrubbing my toilet so maybe another time.

      Yep, that is why I say Bitter is backing the wrong horses.

    393. Bitterlaw says:

      His mental illness has kept him from admitting the inevitable but soon he will break out like Michael and find excuses to support Dem policies. Wait and see!

      Tgca claims that I should seek help for my mental health. Then he makes fun of my “mental illness.” I guess he thinks mental illness is funny. He probably had a really good laugh over my niece. Scumbag.

    394. jason says:

      I guess Bitter thinks calling Toomey a “conservative Republican” is going to help win elections in PA.

      That sounds like it might get a few votes in Radnor, but I assure you it is not the way to get votes in the deplorable areas.

    395. Bitterlaw says:

      I am also pointing out you are backing the wrong horses.

      And you are going to advance conservatism by electing Democrats. You can’t even pretend that you want to elect better Republicans because you are never going to vote again. Well, “never” is a huge loophole for you.

    396. jason says:

      I think Bitter is a conservative. I think we would agree on most issues.

      What we don’t agree is on the direction of the R party going forward if it wants to win elections. I think he is completely misreading the electorate.

    397. jason says:

      And you are going to advance conservatism by electing Democrats.”

      Straw argument.

      The fastest way to elect Democrats is to back stab and disenfranchise your electorate.

      Which is what Toomey is doing.

    398. lisab says:

      its great to see bitterlaw trying to win back the disaffected voters

      yeah … he is gonna do just great

    399. Bitterlaw says:

      The sad thing for me is that I honestly believe that Tgca and Jason would make good politicians. As a veteran and businessman, Jason could easily be elected to Harrisburg or DC in his area.

      Tgca has a great story of achievement coming from a very difficult background. He could inspire a lot of people. Not sure of the voting breakdown of his current area but he would do well.

      I would support both of them even though I am a joke to them. Maybe I am crazy.

    400. jason says:

      The bad news for Rs is that in the end, I think the small tent strategy will prevail. Bitter can whine all he wants that he is “actually for a big tent’ but the fact is the R leadership he supports is not.

      The good news is that starting on Wednesday, I could care less.

    401. jason says:

      though I am a joke to them.”

      I don’t think you are a joke.

      I think you are playing to a choir that has left the stage.

    402. Bitterlaw says:

      I said what I mean. I do not whine.

      The correct phrase is “could not care less.” Jason will make thousands of posts to show how much he does not care.

    403. jason says:

      ‘as a veteran and businessman, Jason could easily be elected to Harrisburg or DC in his area.”

      Nah, thanks, but there are a lot of war heroes around and much more successful business people.

      Besides, I would survive about 30 seconds in a politically correct environment.

    404. jason says:

      I will have at least one.

      Your post is highly offensive!

      No one here as EVER desecrated your niece or her memory. In fact everyone here that I’ve seen has shown great compassion for your loss, including me. My mock over your mental illness was in comparison to Michael going mad voting for Biden after years as a conservative and was in jest because of your lack of reality with politics and not the loss of a loved one, as I noted in more than one post today.

      That never even crossed my mind. NEVER!

      You are the one that desecrates her memory by constantly invoking her in debates that have nothing to do with her very sad unfortunate situation that we all feel awful about. If I could bring your niece back I would gladly do so but I can’t.

      I’ve known folks who died of suicide, including a college friend, and parent of young kids, and I came home from school one afternoon to find my brother in a puddle of blood bleeding out from both wrists and unconscious when he attempted suicide in which he later spent a couple of months in a psychiatric hospital so don’t accuse me or others of being insensitive of suicide or those that truly suffer from serious mental illness because you have no idea what others may have seen or experienced with this issue because some people prefer not to share everything.

      We are not in any way mocking your loss. You’re using it as a crutch to make baseless claims and attacks on others here, and I won’t tolerate it any longer. It’s gone on long enough.

      Shame on you for accusing others of taking joy in the loss of your niece. That is awful of you to think and say that. You remind me of my mom when you do that. Always trying to hit below the belt to shut down people or make them feel guilty.

      I’m sorry if this offends you but enough is enough. You have no right to accuse anyone of mocking a highly tragic situation that wasn’t even at issue and so wildly implausible that it defies all common sense.

      Perhaps you should reflect on that for a bit before you make highly offensive accusations.

    411. jason says:

      Btw, I watched the replay of Andy Reid’s “genius play”.

      It worked, so there is that, probably because the Browns didn’t think there would be a play and got caught asleep. So Reid and the Chiefs get credit for a well designed play.

      But was it the SMART play? No. If it doesn’t work, and a pass play on 4th down has at least a 30% chance of failing, the Browns would have had great field position and plenty of time to score the winning TD.

      The smart play was to make the Browns march all the way down the field to win.

    412. jason says:

      Tgca, why are you leaving?

      I am not leaving HHR, I am just ending my involvement in politics.

      For the record, I would make the absolute most horrible politician, as I do not have the personality to greet and schmooze people. I am to blunt, excitable, and verbose with an annoying Jersey accent.

      I’d make a much better strategist and analyst. My strength is in absorbing large amounts of data and presenting it to others to decide how to use it.

      In addition, my inability to control my sarcasm and remarks at inappropriate times would not be welcoming to most voters.

      Good riddance…

      “Republican Rep. Peter Meijer has had an epiphany after voting in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump last week. In an interview on George Stephanopoulos’ partisan dump of a show, Meijer shared that he “may very well” have ended his political career with the move.”

      Tgca- I failed my niece in life. I obviously continue to do so here.

      I’m from New Jersey. There is no attack too low. However, I let your lies and distortions get to me and it was unfair of me to accuse you as I did. I should not have done that. I am sorry.

      Now GFY.

    416. jason says:

      AOC is “demanding” resignations.

      But in fairness to her, it is not partisan.

      And that is why I have demanded the resignations of senators Ted Cruz, senators Josh Hawley, Majority Leader, Republican Major— rather, Republican Minority Leader in the House McCarthy, Kevon McCarthy, along with many others, because this is not just about political opinion or partisanship”

    417. Tgca says:

      417

      I need to focus on other things in life with regard to my personal career endeavors I am starting, as well as focus on my physical therapy to combat some setbacks I’ve had this year and that takes a few hours a day of intense training, and lastly, seeing our country go to hell is so deeply sad and negatively consuming that I wish a break from it all for quite some time.

      I believe the three worst times in American history were the three great wars: civil war, WWI and WWII, where we lost so much young life and people really don’t remember that great cost, and now I fear we are headed into another period of great sadness and loss for the nation so I don’t want it to be the focus of my day or be consumed by it.

      It will not be the 1st time I’ve taken a long sabbatical. Whether it be 6 months or a year depends on me balancing my priorities but I feel 2019 and 2020 were two of the worst years of my life so I’m focused on not letting 2021 be the 3rd.

    418. jason says:

      I failed my niece in life.”

      Your niece was a victim of her illness. You no more failed her than if she had died of a brain tumor.

    419. Bitterlaw says:

      Since Jason did not watch the game, he does not know that the Browns has momentum on their side having knocked the Chiefs QB out of the game and cut the lead to 5. The announcers said Reid made a great call since the Browns were expecting the Chiefs to not run a play.

    420. Bitterlaw says:

      Brain tumors can’t be reasoned with or reassured. I could have called more. Sent more texts. Tgca is right. I will try not bring her up here again.

    421. jason says:

      Brain tumors can’t be reasoned with or reassured. I could have called more. Sent more texts. Tgca is right. I will try not bring her up here again.”su

      Nah. It is like saying I could have found her a better brain surgeon or better hospital, but it wouldn’t change the outcome.

    422. jason says:

      “The announcers said Reid made a great call since the Browns were expecting the Chiefs to not run a play.”

      It is true I didn’t watch and so didn’t know who had momentum or not.

      But Reid didn’t know if the Browns were expecting a play or not until AFTER the play.

      I said it was well designed. And it worked.

      But was it the smart play? I don’t think so.

    423. Tgca says:

      It is not abnormal to feel tremendous guilt when death occurs. Grief comes in many forms and is different for people, and it just takes time to work through it.

      When I was a teenager and my brother died, I often dreamt of him but they were not good dreams. I had one recurring dream where I would be in Macy’s shopping and I would see him behind a clothes rack and go over to see him and then he would run to another one and hide behind it, taunting me and getting me highly frustrated that I could never catch up to him. The dreams faded over time but it took a couple of years before I did not think of his death constantly.

      The worst though was when I lost my dog in 2019. I still count the days she has been gone. I had many dreams of her being harmed and wounded and suffering after she passed. Rarely were there happy dreams. To this day, I struggle with the decision to put her down and watching as she took her last breath and wondering if somehow I could have prevented her cancer by doing more preventative care but she lived to start her 18th year which is more than 99% of her breed and her cancer came out of nowhere with no symptoms of pain or discomfort the morning before she collapsed in the yard so no matter what, I probably could not change fate. That and she lived an incredible long and healthy life and ate organic food and drank bottled water and had her own bedroom with the choice of like 10 sleeping beds throughout the house.

      It’ may seem odd to value an animal so much compared to human life but I view a life as a life, and when you are solely responsible for an animal and it’s welfare, especially nearly 2 decades, to me, I see it as like caring for a baby or an elderly person who is incapable of caring for themselves, where you become everything to them in order for them to survive, and when you can no longer control the situation, it is natural to feel long-lasting guilt when they pass.

      gaia knows my mother and i did not always see eye to eye … one of the last things she said to me, lying in the hospital bed she would die in was “why aren’t you wearing a bra?”

      but seriously … what do i remember the most? not the bad times …

      i remember when i was 6 years old and had the chicken pox and was very ill. i was sleeping from fever all the time.

      i remember my mom woke me up because my favourite tv show, the bionic woman with lindsay wagner was on. ok, in retrospect it sucked, but for a six year old girl the bionic woman was pretty cool.

      she did not have to wake me up, but she did … she cared enough to wake me up … in the days before streaming and even vcrs, when if you missed a show you pretty much missed it … and that is what i most remember.

      and when i am with my girls, that is what i always aspire to … i want them to remember me caring enough to wake them up when they are horribly ill with a terrible disease to see their favourite show …

      So let’s look at which military support voted GOP? Really? Whomever in the new admin requested this should be fired ASAP.

      If the Commander in Chief ever has to fear those that serves, then we have a serious problem with trust.

      Biden’s transition team claims there is a very real fear that members of the national guard who support President Trump might kill Biden during the inauguration so they’ve asked commanders to confiscate all ammo and magazines from the soldiers. Biden’s team asked if it would be possible to determine which soldiers voted in GOP primaries or who have contributed to GOP candidates so commanders could station them away from the president-elect.

      I don’t know what was worse, his beating me with belts and extension cords when I was a child or him yelling in my face with his God awful foul rotting breath from Hell.

      I’m wondering if this is the beginning of a campaign to try and control who can and cannot serve their country and whether they can be trusted to be armed.

      Maybe we should have a Trans-only military so we know there’s no threat to Dem politicians.

      I feel sorry for you poor b-stards. I had good parents. We were poor for most of my childhood so I had to build my own toys and we ate a lot of cheap cuts of meat like innards…tongue and tripe and kidneys..good st-ff. I had long bus rides to school on public transportation. There were no sports or activities in the schools, classes and that was it. No TV until I was maybe 12. I got beaten a few times but I deserved it. I think I had a great childhood.

    449. Tgca says:

      453

      Agreed! It’s absurd! These GOP politicians are cowards.

      It will take many months or longer to put together a detailed case with examples of fraud if a true investigation is ever permitted to examine the allegations. No court is going to allow you to come in with “we got evidence but it will take time to put it together to prove it to you so can you just trust us for now and grant our requests please.”

      This is why I always believed time was not on Trump’s side. Unfortunately, there is a statute of limitations on deferring election outcomes compared to most crimes.

      As for stealing a million dollars, I would not fear God because he is very forgiving and understands these are sins of materiality, unlike Bitter who would NEVER forgive if I stole a million dollars from him.

      Guilt? Hell yeah I would feel guilty. That’s why I would use that stolen money on lavish trips and shopping sprees to help cope with the guilt of my crime.

    451. Tgca says:

      I was quite the explorer as a child. My siblings were 3 to 5 years older than me and usually did not want me around so I learned to explore and analyze.

      I remember playing in condemned factory buildings, coal yards, and disappearing for hours on end along the river banks, railroad tracks, and other areas I probably should not have been at unsupervised or alone.

      I would collect all kind of junk and keep it hidden outside or in the basement. I even had a pet slug that I kept in a box with grass and dirt…and lightening bugs in jars with holes in the caps.

      I found a fossilized leaf once too. I wonder what ever happened to it. It might have been worth millions.

      So while most of my peers were out and about learning to steal, I was learning about nature.

      I miss those times. These were my Rosebuds.

      “A poll released by NBC News on Sunday morning found that President Trump’s approval rating has remained relatively unchanged following deadly rioting by his supporters at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month.

      The new poll found that 43 percent of voters gave Trump a positive job approval rating, a result consistent with polling as recently as just before the November election. More than half of those surveyed — 55 percent — disapproved of Trump’s performance in office, however.

      An overwhelming majority of Republicans — 87 percent — approved of Trump, a small drop from the 89 percent who said the same before the November election. Five percent of Democrats said in the new poll that they approved of Trump, as did 44 percent of independents.”

      When I first quit the R party, for awhile I missed the meetings and events I used to attend. And some of the people. I don’t anymore. I have a feeling I will be zen about not voting altogether just like I am about not watching the NFL or NBA. Been there done that.

      IF 2024 was today and I had to express a preference, maybe I would vote for Trump or Hawley or DeSantis. I certainly would not vote for Pence or Nikki Haley.

      I could support Desantis or Noem. In fact that combination on the same ticket ( in any order) was my preferred pair in the fall for 2024 before November 3.

      Unlike Jason, at least you know the meaning of the word never”

      Zzzzz…. Bitter keep repeating this as if some great revelation, but even here he is not playing with a full deck.

      In 2016 the “Never Trump” movement, if you want to call it that, referred to never voting for Trump in the R primary, anybody but Trump. After he became the nominee it got extended by some people, including me, to cover the GE. Others that didn’t support him, decided to support his because he was the R nominee, or because he was “better than Hillary”.

      After 4 years of his Presidency, I decided to vote based on his record rather than his history and statements as I had done in 2016.

      Bitter wants to pretend that somehow that means if I ever say never about something, it is guaranteed I will change my mind. That is BS.

      I am no longer a voter in PA. I certainly won’t be voting for “judicial elections”. I certainly won’t be voting in 2022. The “never” certainly applies there.

      I already said that circumstances might make me reconsider in 2024, who knows? But would I bet on it? Nah.

      Unlike a Democrat, I will not hope for an economic collapse. Full disclosure: I also have selfish reasons to hope for a strong economy.

      I do hope that some of the cultural issues do come back to bite the Democrats in the arse.

    511. NYCmike says:

      Personally, I wouldn’t mind a Desantis/Noem ticket, although I do wonder if Ben Carson would be interested again, as he would present such a contrast to Trump, but he remained loyal the whole 4 years, so Trump may really back him. Carson could then add Desantis or Noem as a VP.

    512. jason says:

      Carson? Ma, stay away from that bait.

    513. jason says:

      If we weren’t now a banana republic, someone who said this would have to resign.

      “A House impeachment manager acknowledged on Sunday that one reason for charging President Donald Trump with incitement of insurrection was to prevent the outgoing commander in chief from trying to become president again.

      “One of the other purposes of impeachment in this case is to make sure that President Trump is not able to run for federal office again, that he’s not able to seek the presidency,” Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week.”

    514. Bitterlaw says:

      513 Jason used a lot of words to say that when he says “never” he does not mean it. Since I want him to return to voting again, it is good to know.

    515. Bitterlaw says:

      Before I forget, Happy MLK Day. He did not call for riots. He called for the same civil rights for all Americans.

      NYC to say virtue signaling in 3…2…1…

    516. Phil says:

      MLK like anyone else had his personal flaws. He did get it right, however, that people should be judged on the basis of their abilities and not on the basis of their skin color. He was nothing like the race hustlers that today infest the left.

      Thank you! Thank you!

      Oh my! I don’t know what to say. I really did not expect this.

      1st and foremost, let me say I am so humbled to be selected as receiving the Award for Worst Childhood from my peers at HHR.

      Who would’ve thought that one day, some lil half breed trashy kid from New Jersey would be standing here before you all accepting this most prestigious recognition.

      I know there were so many other well-deserving folks here that should be recognized for their chitty upbringing too and each of us has a special story to tell.

      That is why I just want to let you know that I do not view this award as an acknowledgement of just my experiences but really, I am just accepting it knowing that we all are deserving this great recognition so tonight I want to let you know I share this with all of you.

      So thank you from the bottom of my heart.

      I am deeply touched by this great recognition and I will do my best to uphold the highest standards going forward to show my appreciation for this great recognition.

      Thank you. Thank you.

      Good night and God Bless.

    518. jason says:

      ason used a lot of words to say that when he says “never” he does not mean it.”

      I hope Bitter never has the chutzpah to say I am lying about what he says again.

    519. Tgca says:

      MLK was a man of his time. The right figure for the right time.

      MLK would be marginalized today. He would be called an appeaser and white suck-up for not taking an aggressive and combative approach to race relations.

    520. jason says:

      Before I forget, Happy MLK Day. He did not call for riots. He called for the same civil rights for all Americans.”

      He believed in a peaceful transition to socialism.

      MLK was a committed socialist who believed in “wealth redistribution” and class struggle.

      Basically he believed in what every socialist Dem believes in today.

      “In Where Do We Go From Here, which calls for ?“the full emancipation and equality of Negroes and the poor,” King advocates policies in line with a democratic socialist program: a guaranteed annual income, constitutional amendments to secure social and economic equality, and greatly expanded public housing. He endorses the Freedom Budget put forward by socialist activist A. Philip Randolph, which included such policies as a jobs guarantee, a living wage and universal healthcare. He also outlines how economic inequality can circumscribe civil rights. While the wealthy enjoy easy access to lawyers and the courts, ?“the poor, however, are helpless,” he writes.

    521. jason says:

      Maybe he wouldn’t be considered woke enough today, but make no mistake, King hated capitalism and loved socialism.

    522. Tgca says:

      529

      What shameful and racist commentary.

      It does not matter if it’s true.

      Privileged white folk should not be allowed to criticize people of color without the appropriate approval from people of color.

    523. Bitterlaw says:

      I did hear a black commentator once say, “I hear a lot of white people say that they wish we had somebody like Dr. King today. Well, You had him and one of you shot him.” Interesting take.

      MLK was committed to Socialism. He was also incredibly brave and stood up to the racist scum of his time to demand civil rights. Both can be true.

    524. Bitterlaw says:

      I hope Bitter never has the chutzpah to say I am lying about what he says again.

      Jason – I will make calling out your lies about what I say like a standing objection in a deposition. Rather than slowing things down by repeatedly objecting, I will just have a standing objection to whatever lies you tell.

      Sorry about the Worst Childhood award. There were others considered:

      Walt – Spent a billion years alone before one celled organisms appeared.

      lisab – Had to grow up with the stigma of having heterosexual parents in Provincetown.

    525. jason says:

      MLK was committed to Socialism”

      You could stop there.

    526. Bitterlaw says:

      One could infer that Jason was not a fan of the civil rights movement of the 1950 and 1960s. Notice the time frame I stated. Nothing about BLM or reparations. Perhaps we should exchange 200 posts on it.

    527. jason says:

      I know a lot of incredibly brave people committed to the cause of freedom too.

    528. jason says:

      I thought we were talking about MLK.

      You and agree he was a committed socialist.

      jason is “not a fan of the civil rights movement” is a completely fabricated crock of crap.

    529. Bitterlaw says:

      Then why did you not want to include the statement about him being brave and fighting for civil rights. Did not see a reason for you to want to leave it out.

    530. jason says:

      Bitter is now going to try to make me a civil rights hater because I said MLK was a socialist?

      You can’t make this sh-t up.

    531. Bitterlaw says:

      Not at all. Just saw no reason for your comment in 534.

    532. jason says:

      Then why did you not want to include the statement about him being brave and fighting for civil rights.”

      Because it doesn’t change the fact he was a socialist.

      Everyone knows he was brave and fought for civil rights….duhhhh

    533. jason says:

      You were trying to water down the fact he was a socialist with “yeah, but…”

      I didn’t go for the yeah, but.

      How that justifies “jason is not a fan of the civil rights movement” is really beyond me.

    534. Bitterlaw says:

      This is never going to get to 50 posts let alone 200. Might as well call it.

    535. jason says:

      Deal.

    536. jason says:

      I should get some points for being called a racist, of course.

    537. Bitterlaw says:

      Your racist points were included in your all-time points winner – La Raza Pimp.

    538. jason says:

      LaZebra I think still had the “best” prejudice statement in HHR history, when he said voters deserved a real Christian, not Mitt Romney.

    539. jason says:

      Or maybe Rockeller R, whatever his name was, who said Puerto Ricans weren’t Americans and bred like rabbits.

    540. jason says:

      I remember I gave LaZebra the LaBigot name, and it stuck.

    541. Cash Cow TM says:

      Walt said he has enjoyed reading all the comments about old Walt.

    542. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca is the most anti-PR poster here. Apparently, he also sucks at speaking Spanish.

    543. jason says:

      Of course, Michael Corleone said people from South America were not part of “Western Civilization”.

      And NYC told me to “go back from where I came from”.

      I have been the most maligned person here.

    544. Bitterlaw says:

      Most maligned? Seriously? I am a an unemployed depressed failure. And that’s just what I say about myself.

      Tgca accuses me of wearing sweaters. Lisa says I am fat.

    545. jason says:

      Puhhhleeeze..

      Fat? Sweaters?’

      Compared to La Raza Pimp? Outside of Western Civilization? Threatened with exile?

      And btw, Tgca says I am morbidly obese.

      You have it good.

    546. jason says:

      I am the most insulted person here by far. What did mnw say about me the other day? I forget… but I think “illiterate” was part of it.

      wes says I am “vapid” and about a dozen other insults

      Everyone hates me. No matter how nice I try to be.

      Sometimes I lay awake at night sleepless my feelings are so hurt.

      Sweaters…..zzzzzzz.

    547. Bitterlaw says:

      A banned poster said I was the reason my niece is dead.

      I really did not want to bring up the worst insult of all but I will not accept second place without a fight.

      I have been lumped in with Robbie. Beat that.

    548. jason says:

      This is never going to get to 50 posts let alone 200. Might as well call it.

      8 years to citizenship.

      https://www.stamfordadvocate.com/news/article/Biden-to-propose-major-immigration-legislation-15880225.php

      We can bitch and moan about it or start thinking about how to reach out and get some of those new citizens in the 2029 election. That is not agreeing with, endorsing or being happy with this proposal in any possible way. Dems own it all now unless the GOP is a few Democrats can be peeled off.

    550. Bitterlaw says:

      Meant to say GOP has to be rock solid and grab a few Dems. Very unlikely.

    551. Phil says:

      Oh then. Eight years and then you can kiss Texas bye bye.

      As the song says, California here I come.

      Lol.

    552. Bitterlaw says:

      OR You man the F up, stop thinking that ethnicity/heritage are destiny and fight for the future. Ask for ideas from those Texas Hispanics who vote for the GOP.

    553. Phil says:

      Knock it off, bitter. I’m not in the mood for your the Irish changed their voting behavior drivel. We don’t have forty years….and by “we” I’m talking about this country, not the Republican Party. They’re already done.

    554. Wes says:

      You know, I once read a book called The Centauri Device by M. John Harrison. In the book, the titular device destroys the entire freaking galaxy.

      That was actually more cheerful reading than the Revelation-inspired posts I see on HHR.

    555. jason says:

      We can bitch and moan about it or start thinking about how to reach out and get some of those new citizens in the 2029 election.”

      Zzzzzzz…..

    556. Bitterlaw says:

      It’s not drivel. It is true.

      Wes – It has gotten so bad that I am one of the more optimistic posters and willing to fight. Bitterlaw as optimist. Let that sink in.

    557. Phil says:

      It’s absolutely drivel.

      It sure as hell ain’t math.

    558. Bitterlaw says:

      Wes – 95% of House Republicans voted to NOT impeach the President. That means 100% of Republicans must lose their next election to Democrats as punishment.

    559. lisab says:

      Most maligned? Seriously? I am a an unemployed depressed failure.
      ——————————

      maligned means being unfairly or falsely criticized

      not fairly criticized

    560. Bitterlaw says:

      Why, Phil? What is different about them? Is their skin too dark? Do they have a greedy gene? Why can’t they ever vote like you and I do (well, when you used to vote)?

    561. Bitterlaw says:

      Good evening, lisab. If I do kill myself, I promise you will be mentioned in the note. I will leave instructions with my wife to post it here.

    562. Phil says:

      Ask the Democrats, bitter. They are the ones opening the border, inviting them in, and in a hurry to give them voting rights. Think they are for that just for the hell of it?

      Wake the F up, man. You can’t possibly be that naive.

    563. Phil says:

      ….and if you don’t understand how that works politically, see California.

    564. Tgca says:

      570

      Please let your wife know I get 1st dibs on your sweater collection too please.

      ——————–

      who gets his martyr complex?

    566. jason says:

      and if you don’t understand how that works politically, see California.”

      Phil, Bitter thinks the Dems are not doing this as part of their plan for a permanent majority.

      The Dems realize these people will vote Republican, but they want to help out the poor immigrants.

    567. jason says:

      Wes – 95% of House Republicans voted to NOT impeach the President. That means 100% of Republicans must lose their next election to Democrats as punishment.”

      Translation: let’s keep giving them a pass.

      Those that accepted a fraudulent election?

      Let’s keep giving them a pass.

      Hopefully, the deplorables won’t see it the same way as the suburban elites.

    568. Bitterlaw says:

      Of course the Dems want them to vote for Dems. I’m not naive. I also am not a quitter. You refuse to say why anything is fixed in stone – either because you are afraid to say the reason or you refuse to admit that there is nothing set in stone. You are a history teacher. You should know better. If one of your students wrote a paper and the answer was “because it’s different now” and gave no explanation you would give it an F. You say look at California but won’t try to stop it from happening to the US. Why are you so soft?

    569. Bitterlaw says:

      The 95% who voted to NOT impeach Trump do not need a pass. They did not nothing wrong but Jason wants them punished, too. A sane strategist would build upon those 95% rather than discard them,

    570. Bitterlaw says:

      The Dems thought my family would always be Dems. Did not turn out that way. Don’t tell Phil. He does not believe it is possible.

    571. jason says:

      I can see Bitter is finding a lot of “common ground”.

    572. Bitterlaw says:

      Not easy to find common ground with those who quit.

    573. Wes says:

      It used to be that if I wanted to read something dark and depressing I needed to crack open a book by an author like H. P. Lovecraft or Thomas Harris.

      Now I just have to read HHR to get my fix for depressing writing.

    574. Bitterlaw says:

      I would like your help, Jason, but why would you help me? How? “Here are some ideas for your first campaign event. Tell them that there is no way to win so they should not vote for you. Make sure that they know that the only way to stop Democrats is to let them win.”

    575. Bitterlaw says:

      Wes – The country is lost forever. I read it on a blog so it must be true.

    576. Phil says:

      Hell, Wes. You don’t need to read this site for depression. Just watch the news.

    577. Wes says:

      It’s over, Bitter. The Barbarians are at the gates:

      https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jIQouGy_B08

    578. Bitterlaw says:

      Careful, Wes. “Those people” are coming and have the unalterable Dem DNA. They are completely different than every other group that ever came to America. Of course, they should be rewarded for coming here illegal but it is going to happen. The best strategy is to not try to get their vote. Now that you think of it, Jason probably looks and sounds like some of “them.”. He claims he served in the military and voted for Republicans but Phil said that is “drivel” and not possible.

    584. Phil says:

      Keep up the good fight, bitter. I can respect that.

      Good night.

    585. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Contrary to the very questionable Pew poll at the top of this thread, according to an NBC News poll Trumps support remains the same as prior to the election:

      “A new NBC News poll found that 43 percent of voters nationwide gave Trump a positive job approval rating, just barely down from 45 percent who said the same before the November election and the 44 percent who approved of his performance shortly after he took office in 2017.”

      “While a record 10 House Republicans broke ranks to vote for Trump’s impeachment last week, his approval rating among Republicans shows few signs that GOP voters are widely disillusioned with him. Almost 9 in 10 Republicans — 87 percent — give Trump a thumbs-up, compared with 89 percent who said the same before the November election.”

    586. Bitterlaw says:

      You either fight or quit. I don’t quit. I don’t have your luxury of quitting, Phil. I don’t have a pension and can’t sit and snipe from the sidelines. You allegedly love your country but will let it fail without a fight.

    587. Bitterlaw says:

      Good night, Phil.

      SDC – I hope you are ready to assume Tgca’s duties as Gay Hedgehog. Hopefully without the stupid sweater jokes and inane metrosexual charges.

    588. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      596. Sorry Bitter, but on the scale stated below, I rate only about a 4-5: so I’m out. Tgca will have to delay his cowardly exit until he finds a more suitable replacement:

      “Some of us can easily describe ourselves as gay, straight or bisexual, but other people find these static labels inadequate. A recent YouGov survey found that almost half of young people aged between 18 and 24 in the UK do not consider themselves exclusively gay or straight. Instead, they identify with more “open-minded” definitions.

      The Kinsey scale challenges the three dominant categories by describing a person’s sexuality on a scale of zero to six. Zero represents exclusively heterosexual, three equally heterosexual and homosexual, and six exclusively homosexual.”
      (From the Guardian)

      According to the dictionary, a metrosexual is “a young, urban, heterosexual male with liberal political views, and interest in fashion, and a refined sense of taste.” If Tgca is calling you that, it sounds complimentary (sans liberal views).

    589. lisab says:

      the trouble is you are fighting with voters you need. instead of addressing the apparently stolen election, you keep insulting them. they are telling you they think the election was stolen … it does not matter how many immigrants you convert if the election is stolen.

      and that is the problem with much of the current gop leadership

      they want business as usual … and as we have seen many of their former supporters do not believe the election was fair, so there is no point in voting.

      until you address that … you will be out of power until the dems really screw up

      and just saying you believe some votes were stolen or that you were fine with trump contesting the election in the courts is not enough. you do not plan to do anything about the issue at all … or at least you have not said you will

      Snowden is a traitor who should be executed.

      Assange has already been denied extradition so it is moot.

    597. jason says:

      From what I read of the Bannon case, it revolves around that supposedly Bannon and partner promised donors not to use any of the funds for salaries or expenses and then they did. Using funds for salaries and expenses is not illegal, except evidently they promised not to. It seems more of a “breach of trust” issue than criminal activity.

      Thereafter, that will provide cover for US politicians to regulate as well. This could all happen within 2 to 3 years is my guess.

      Big Tech will only have itself to blame and then Twitter can whine censorship like they did when Uganda blocked them for attempting to interfere with their elections.

      Europe is another story. They love their regulations.

      My guess is within the next 3 years, expect Europe to start curbing the influence of Big Tech with regulations…then that will provide cover for the US to step in as well.

      I think Trump should call for unity and state let’s all start afresh and issue a pardon to all rioters charged from last year as well as the Capitol INSURGENTS.

      Don’t see how the MSM and Dems could make an argument that will resonate only charging one side stick.

    610. Tgca says:

      So recent polls (Rasmussen, NBC) consistently show 90% of GOP support Trump, his approval ratings have been stable for a few months, nearly 80% of GOP thinks election was stolen and now Politico poll shows 20% of GOP thinks Trump should be convicted in Senate impeachment trial?

      To extrapolate, so15 million of 75 million Trump voters now want Trump convicted even though they still approve of his job?

      These numbers don’t jive at all. Something is rotten in Denmark…and I bet Putin is behind it!

      It’s new math I guess where 2 + 2 = 17.

      Add Gallup to the list. Yesterday, it released its final Trump approval poll of adults. It showed Trump’s final approval rating among Republicans at 88%, the highest percentage of intra-Party approval for a Republican President in a Final Poll since “We Like Ike”.
      ( The Gallup Poll was D+13 and showed Trump’s overall approval at 34%.)

      “Not only did Regnery note they would now be handling the publishing of Hawley’s book, but their president Thomas Spence penned a powerful piece for the Wall Street Journal shredding “blacklists in publishing” and explaining why they opted to do what Simon and Schuster cowardly backed out of doing:

      An independent publisher is vulnerable to today’s Jacobins in many ways, for it relies on large partners to print, distribute and sell its books. Now that dissent from the latest version of progressive orthodoxy is equated with violence and treason, my colleagues and I know we could be next. But we choose to fight back.

      We’re proud to publish Mr. Hawley’s book, which his original publisher has made more important than ever. We don’t have to agree with everything—or anything—Mr. Hawley does. We ask only if his book is well-crafted and has something true and worthwhile to say. The answer is yes.

      The statement of the 250 “publishing professionals” shows that today’s censors recognize no limits. I appeal to the real professionals of publishing, some of whom may be the bosses and mentors of those who signed that mindless rant: Remember that you are Americans. Americans argue, write, preach, campaign and vote. They don’t blacklist.”

    617. jason says:

      Today’s Jacobins… I love it.

    618. Phil says:

      So another poll, this time Gallup gives Trump an 88% approval rate among Republicans? This despite the nonstop hammering of Trump across the MSM?

      Yes, Mitch. Have your post presidential impeachment trial and allow your Washington Generals in the Senate their “vote of conscience”. That should fire up the base (hint, not the way you seem to think)

      Giving your base the finger is so f*cking brilliant as an intro to the 2022 elections. A real master stroke.

      Political giants like Liz and Sasse are entirely on board. Oh, BTW, so is Schumer. He heartily endorses the strategy.

    619. jason says:

      I agree with most of this, although I still blame Kemp and the GA SOS for the losses.

      “But the real loss of Georgia to Democrat control began long ago. Quite simply, it can be traced to Democrats’ fundamentally different approach to winning elections from Republicans.

      Both parties are effectively coalitions of interest groups. For Democrats, that means public employee union members, especially teachers; the media/entertainment industry; big tech and social media; the higher education establishment; and racial, ethnic, and gender minorities, both real and imagined, all of whom depend on big government for their jobs, benefits, customers, and grants. For Republicans, that means constitutional and economic conservatives, libertarians, Evangelical Christians, pro-life voters, and, more recently, high school educated blue-collar workers, most of whom simply want to be left alone to live their lives as they see fit.

      So, one coalition is more invested, economically and philosophically, in government than the other, but is also more easily organized and in control of more levers of power than the other. Democrats, like those working in Georgia, many of them from out of state, simply organize their voters better than Republicans, because they are more easily organized. By disparaging voter ID and the cleaning up of voter rolls, and by supporting same-day registration and mail-in balloting, they also help create a bigger pool of voters for Democrats to organize and Republicans to try to police. Stopping a few unlawful voters on election day pales in comparison to having created or collected thousands of voters beforehand.”

      Our newspaper had a section called Journal Junction where people can call in and vent about what issue bugs them.

      My eyes were lying watching the Fulton County after hours vote scam.

      The damn Mayor who saved NY City from the slum pit and led on 911 lied too.

      The hundreds of thousands of mail in ballots with no chain of custody.

      What liars that are. They hate Trump that much. Screw the base and the country.

    629. Gordon Allen says:

      Jason. Re Georgia. You can say much of that about every state. People attuned to/ working in/ benefitting from/ covering government are Democrat’s.
      One thing here in Florida is the state government has been run by Republicans who actually act like Republicans.
      Having a constitutional prohibition against the income tax is a big help to backbone as well.I think the last time someone running as Democrat won as Governor won( by cheating too) was 1994. Ditto for state Legislature.
      Once the government reaches a critical mass, it’s hard to turn it back.See Washington DC.

    630. JeffP says:

      Someone tell Cocaine he is on the wrong side of the GOP split.

      How out of touch was his 2K stimulus checks are socialism for wealthy people? Tell that to to people who are months behind their rent and house payments. Not that is the solution. I think he had a better argument but how stupid he is.

    631. Gordon Allen says:

      Mcconnell is in his last term,and is reverting to who he really is. Like Flake,Romney,Toomey were and are as well as others..;
      If they likely aren’t going to face Republcan voters in a primary again,or need them in the General,the mask falls off.
      They have to be purged forthwith or there is no coming back for the GOP ,nor should there be.
      In this regard it has been healthy to know now who is who. Especially in the Senate with it’s 6 year terms,the establishment virus, like COVID,infects a lot of people pretty quickly

    632. Bitterlaw says:

      I guess those 1000 election workers who signed affidavits were lying.

      JeffP – Every one of those people may have been telling the truth. However, signed Affidavits are worthless outside of a court unless the person who signed them can be deposed and cross-examined. They are usually admitted in civil suits to streamline testimony when both sides agree. Since the Dems would not agree in a case like this, they would have to be evaluated in court. Unfortunately, courts did not take the cases.

    633. Bitterlaw says:

      It is funny to read Affidavits that were supposedly written by the injured party that begin with “Under the Jones case as it applies Section 306(a)(1) of the Act (as amended in 2017)……”

    634. Gordon Allen says:

      D+13 by Gallup?. I thought his party identification# was D+1,30-29? But the 88% number sounds right,as it is consistent with other findings. Roughly 90%. The Trump bashers in the GOP aren’t going to run,or run soon,as it is obvious what will happen.

      643…Bitterlaw…I hear you and agree. The funny one I saw was the lady employee from MI Wayne County Building who testified about her team dating thousands of mail in ballots by hand in September…the supervisor told the team each day what date to put…sad thing she was just doing her “job”. Wonder whose votes those were? I don’t think Mitch would like that to happen in Louisville and cost him the election. OMG this country has gone bonkers!

      However, if Biden creates a National Floral Curator, I would totally lobby for Bitter.

    643. NYCmike says:

      2022 – I know the representative from NY-11 will have a much tighter race in 2 years. The raw vote totals shows a very large increase in the Democratic vote. I need to check on the numbers of mail-in ballots as compared to earlier years.

      Back up the points truck right to the trophy case, jason.

      After 26 years as a trial attorney, it might be time for a change – either as a judge or teacher. Substitute teaching would be a foot in the door as I do not have a teacher’s certification so I would need to either be waived in or work at a private school. You can look up my 2002 race in Philadelphia. My 12% was actually a very good showing in that district.

      However, I disagree that Wes and Bitter are frauds. Of course Robbie Goebbels is a fraud.

      Wes and Bitter are not too fond of working class Rs, that is true. They are enamored with the idea all you have to do is “get back the suburbs”. They also think the election was about Trump. It wasn’t. I think this is all complete delusion, but it doesn’t make them frauds.

      Except you and your suburban elitist friends would never agree to anything or any candidate that would actually get their votes.

      Bill Gates, the crusader against climate change and sea level rise, recent bought a $43,000,000 beachfront home in Del Mar, California.

      Del Mar is in the middle of a battle with the State Coastal Commission over a “managed retreat” strategy, that would eventually require abandonment of coastal homes, as higher sea levels will flood them.

      So whose coastal home will flood first? — Obama’s new Martha’s Vineyard mansion, or Gate’s Del Mar mansion? If these two are not taking the sea level rise claims seriously, why should anyone else?

      I think I’ll call it respecting another person’s opinion, while disagreeing with him.

      That said, I believe Bitterlaw is a conservative, yet doesn’t realize how his words, and his reaction, or lack thereof, to the actions of people like Lynne Cheney, Sasse, Romney, McConnell etc presents itself as evidence of his “squishiness”.

      I hope that the coming 2 years will go differently than how I believe they may, as I do not understand why McConnell is acting in such a way.

      Since tomorrow is going to suck anyway, let’s have some fun anyway. Let’s play What If? I will start with the 2000 election and then the next poster takes their choice of predicting a subsequent election. Try to base the prediction on what was known then and not in hindsight.

      1/20/2001 After the Florida recount ended with Al Gore winning the state by 8 votes, he is sworn into office.

      9/11/2001 Terrorist attacks kill thousands in New York and the Pentagon. Passengers on a highjacked plane fight the terrorists but the plane crashes and kills hundreds more in Alexandria, VA.

      April 9, 2002. After confirming that the terrorists trained in Afghanistan, President Gore sends a stern letter to the Taliban. His attempt to embargo products from Afghanistan fails when he is informed that Afghanistan has no economy except illegal opium and heroin.

      May 17, 2002. Terrorist attacks in Chicago, LA, and New York kill hundreds with simultaneous suicide bombings. President Gore responds by threatening to do nothing.

      August 24, 2004 – Mayor Rudy Giuliani accepts the Republican nomination. His campaign slogan, “Make terrorists bleed again” resounds with voters and he wins the EC 400-135.

      January 2008 – After being swept from power in 2004, Democrats had engaged in a fight for the soul of the party. On the eve of the Iowa Caucus and the New Hampshire primary, the 2 major contenders face off. Will it be Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump who wins the nomination and the chance to take on President Giuliani?

      Tag. Next poster.

      NY Mike. You’re pretty stupid. Bitterlaw is a fraud; if you can’t figure that out,shame on you.He wants to a substitute teacher; I was at $ 57/ hour a substitute teacher….in my retirement! You know NY Mike,when you do what you want,not what you have to.
      If Bitterlaw lives in a pricey Philadelphia suburb,and hopes for a Workman’s Comp job- as he says- he has inherited money,or a financially supportive wife; or he doesn’t.
      This site is infested with frauds like Robbie,Wes,and Bitterlaw. And one way or another they’re going down with their beloved RINO’s. You too?
      I’m like Jason. Life is too precious to waste on idiots. My bad. To be corrected immediately.

      Heh.

      Ordinarily I consider that elitist pissant, Gordon Co cksucker, not worth acknowledging, but I have to admit a fraud who claims to be enamored of Trump’s blue-collar base while having to vindicate himself by bragging to people he’s never met about how much better his supposedly opulent lifestyle is on a blog brings a chuckle out of me.

      I can’t say I’m upset about his departure. Maybe in the real world he can find people who are genuinely impressed by his claims of greatness.

      actually gordon probably is pretty successful

      i was pretty accurate though 🙂

    739. Wes says:

      I’ll take 1932, Bitter:

      Rather than raise taxes, sign Smoot-Hawley, and pressure business owners into maintaining full employment after Black Thursday, Hoover took the Harding approach to the 1930 recession and saw the economy begin recovering by early 1931. Buoyed by an improving economy in 1932 and the beginning of a return to full employment, Hoover defeats Roosevelt in a landslide and returns the country to the prosperity of the 1920s. Fractured by a stinging loss to a man they had considered to be a political Dead Man Walking in early 1930, Democrats promptly shift back to being the party of Grover Cleveland rather than Woodrow Wilson in an attempt to reclaim lost relevance and become competitive in 1936.

    740. lisab says:

      then in 1940 the dems cheat and sweep enough republicans from office to control the white house, the house and senate led by fdr

      and none of the gope complain and we end up in ww2

    741. Wes says:

      Whether he’s successful or not is irrelevant, Lisa. He’s so insecure he has to brag about the things he claims to have to strangers on the internet.

      His pettiness has the opposite effect of what he intends. I don’t care if he’s telling the truth or lying. I just find it hilarious he feels the need to try to impress me with his claims of success. He’s not someone I’m envious of but someone I consider to be a self-absorbed joke.

      Anyway, he’s not worth discussing further, so I’ll end my commentary on him here.

    742. lisab says:

      He’s so insecure he has to brag about the things he claims to have to strangers on the internet.
      ———————

      actually i saw the feud develop, he did not say anything that bad … you were just extra sensitive to him

    743. Wes says:

      Lisa, Roosevelt was near death in 1940. It’s amazing he survived that term. With the shift toward the GOP that had happened in 1928, Democrats would almost have to nominate a Southerner to have a chance in 1940.

      In any event, at the time, New York elected its Governor’s at two-year intervals, so by 1940, Roosevelt would have been out of politics in for eight years in 1940 and, with two national losses under his belt, would have had no basis for a 1940 run.

    744. lisab says:

      yes … but as i said the dems cheated

      elected fdr in a landslide by just counting whatever votes they wanted

      the gope didn’t care or complain because they wanted to sell weapons for the war

      and they decided they did not like hoover, they wanted someone who was nicer and thought hoover was uncouth

      and we ended up in ww2 anyway

    745. Wes says:

      Actually, Lisa, you apparently didn’t see the beginning of the feud. It began with his braggadocio the day after the election in November.

      CDM and my fellow Tarheel, Will, were as unimpressed as I was with with his bluster. I didn’t bother with feeding his fragile ego again by acknowledging him till last week.

      In any event, as I said, it’s not worth discussing anymore.

    746. lisab says:

      i miss cdm … in fairness he is pretty successful

      i mean … he is no hugh … but …

    747. Wes says:

      Well, I understand the analogy you’re drawing, Lisa, but the country wasn’t the same in 1940 as now. Democrats wouldn’t have had the base necessary for massive systemic fraud (although I disagree Trump lost because of fraud) and would have had no choice but to win honestly in a largely GOP-friendly country–as they actually did in 1932.

      If you’re going to make an alternate-history prediction you should at least make it believable in context of the time being discussed.

      ————

      true … in reality the republicans would have cared if the democrats stole the election in such an obvious manner

      but if we are making stuff up we should make it relevant to now

    750. jason says:

      Bitter said I would post 1000 posts about not voting. So here is the first one.

      There are two main reasons I will no longer be voting. Or working for campaigns. Or donating to candidates.

      1) I no longer think my vote matters. The country has shifted ideologically, mostly because far leftist academia has been unchallenged for decades. The disciples of this education have dominated the media and now have spread to corporate America. They have shifted the suburbs from majority R to majority D. It was not about Trump, or he would not have gotten more votes and a higher percentage of the vote. It was an ideological election and people with my ideology lost. Any “wins” by Rs in the future will be pyrrhic victories, the ideology is not changing back. There might be a few ups and downs, but America is going socialist.

      2) I was too invested emotionally in politics. I felt physically ill with the GA results. I was tormented a Cuba style Marxist like Warnock could win in GA. I am truly disgusted with Rs who would vote for impeachment. What does this get me? The socialist agenda Biden will implement will be one disappointment after another. Since I don’t see light at the end of the tunnel, I prefer to exit the tunnel.

      But I gave it a good run. Robbie Goebbels said the sooner people like me stop voting the better. But what has he done for the R party and conservative causes beyond thousands of posts attacking any R on the ballot and regurgitating MSM talking points for over a decade?

      I worked on Phil Gramm’s campaign. For Kay Bailey Hutchinson. Rick Perry. GWB. Dozens of other office holders in Texas at all levels. I posted road signs, manned phone banks, canvassed door to door. I attended hundreds of meetings, bbqs, seminars, rallies, events of all types. I worked long hours on Mitt Romney’s ill fated Project Orca. I campaigned for Tom Corbett, Toomey, Scott Perry and many other local PA Rs. Over 25 years, I donated well over $100k of hard earned money to Rs and conservative causes.

      So if you did more, you can talk about “quitters”. If you didn’t, GFY.

      soooooooo … i open the can for my cat, who genetically seemed to know the sound of a cat food can being opened and was going nuts at the smell of

      turkey giblets and gray

      wow it look good!

      i looked at the food … my cat looked at me … i looked at the food … my cat said, “don’t even think it”

      and anyway … my cat got fed … but it was touch and go

      Odds and sods…

      Trump pardons Kwame? A corrupt Dem from Detroit. That’s terrible. Weak.

      I did not watch Hannity as usual last night but based on Twitter he was lit about Cocaine. That’s good.

      Watched some of Tucker…he is taking the discussion to another level regarding the battle with leftist ideology.

      Fox News needs a comeback to bring balance to cable news. Glad they are making changes. It’s important with what’s coming. Hope the WSJ and NY Post have some guts.

      …an obscure album of old hits and rarities by the British group The Who.

      Thanks, Wes. Lisab violated the rules on the What If scenarios for cheap laughs with her Dems cheat like in 2020 in her scenarios.

      Jason – Why do F’ing lie about my position? I have never (and I know the meaning of the word) that the GOP could win elections with only suburban voters. Never. A third party will hand the Democrats power for years. Even if it elected a few Senators or Reps, we do not have a Parliamentary system and Dems would be in the majority in both chambers of Congress and hold the White House.

      I also never said the GOP could survive only with suburban voters. Never.

      As for Radnor, I moved here because it was close to both of our jobs and it was a top 5 school district.
