    Trump’s Chosen Candidates Trail in GA and PA

    We have two new polls for the state of Georgia that show similar results where the voters in Georgia seem happy to keep Republican Brian Kemp (not endorsed by Trump) as Governor but would have a Democrat as US Senator instead of Herschel Walker (endorsed by Trump). The two polls come from Survey USA and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    GOVERNOR – GEORGIA (Survey USA)
    Brian Kemp (R-inc) 45%
    Stacey Abrams (D) 44%

    US SENATE – GEORGIA (Survey USA)
    Raphael Warnock (D-inc) 48%
    Herschel Walker (R) 39%

    GOVERNOR – GEORGIA (AJC)
    Brian Kemp (R-inc) 48%
    Stacey Abrams (D) 43%

    US SENATE – GEORGIA (AJC)
    Raphael Warnock (D-inc) 46%
    Herschel Walker (R) 43%

    The Survey USA poll was done July 21-24 among 604 likely voters. The AJC poll was done July 14-22 among 902 likely voters. Meanwhile in Pennsylvania in a new poll from Blueprint Polling, both of Trump’s endorsed candidates are trailing badly providing Democrats with a golden pickup opportunity at least in the US Senate.

    US SENATE – PENNSYLVANIA (Blueprint Polling)
    John Fetterman (D) 49%
    Mehmet Oz (R) 40%

    GOVERNOR – PENNSYLVANIA (Blueprint Polling)
    Josh Shapiro (D) 51%
    Doug Mastriano (R) 39%

    This poll was done July 19-21 among 712 likely voters.

      Personally I hope Georgia’s reelect Kemp and oust Warnock.

      Damn Autocorrect.

      Lol. Kemp and Abrams aren’t running even. So that same sample showing Walker trailing by 9 is a joke. The Atlanta Journal Poll looks right.

    5. EML says:

      I mentioned earlier today about how well Republicans did in Charlotte’s At-Large city council elections. I went into Dave’s Redistricting App and drew up the results here:

      https://davesredistricting.org/maps#viewmap::11abe896-d28c-45cd-a7c8-bada8d21699b

      Please let me know if this works (I think it should). If you are new to DRA, it works best on a PC. Mobile is not well supported.

      Blue = precincts won by the Dem slate
      Red = precincts won by the GOP slate
      Purple = a mix (candidates from both slates ‘won’ the precinct)

      Trump won only 2 precincts in Charlotte in 2020. The Republican slate won 34, with another 16 in the ‘mixed’ category. This looks more like the pre Trump era voting pattern in suburbia. If this is a precursor to November, Dems are in for a world of hurt.

    6. EML says:

      So Democrats have moved on from hoping Dobbs would save them. Now they are on to the “Inflation Reduction Act”. They’ll never learn that the people aren’t the rubes they think they are.

    7. Wes says:

      It seems Walker runs about five points behind Kemp. If Kemp can hit 56% then Walker can win sans runoff.

    8. Wes says:

      Dobbs was never going to save the Dems, EML. Had the Supremes handed down the decision in late October, Dems might have held the Senate and decreased losses in the House. As it stands, most people have realized not much has changed; ergo, Dems have to move on to something else since Dobbs isn’t turning the country into a misogynist dictatorship the way the Left was proclaiming.

    9. Phil says:

      I got it. Let’s spend a bunch more money and call it the Inflation Reduction Act!

      LMAO

    10. Wes says:

      The cognitive dissonance is amazing, Phil. All of the increased federal spending from the last two years triggered the current round of inflation. Now Dems are repeating these failed policies and expecting different results.

      I can’t wait till November.

    11. EML says:

      Supposedly $433 billion in spending and $739 billion in tax revenue. A drop in the bucket. It will not slow inflation. The only likely short term effect is to lower everybody’s 401(k) as investor’s don’t know how the increased corporate tax rate will effect everything.

    12. Wes says:

      Thank you, West Virginia, for voting for Manchin three times for Senate!

    13. EML says:

      We also would have a Senator Perdue in the Senate if it wasn’t for the Libertarian candidate.

    14. Phil says:

      Spending is what triggered inflation in the first place. So let’s just spend billions more….and then you call it the inflation reduction act. Makes perfect sense.

      You can’t make this sh^t up.

    15. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      #11- EML
      Usually, additional taxes on corporations pass through to the consumer. Prices rise which is inflationary or consumers stop spending which slows economic/GDP growth.

    16. Wes says:

      Well, in 2005, Republicans changed the runoff law from 45% to 50%, EML. Once Chambliss had to go to a runoff after getting 49.8% of the vote in 2008, I would have figured the GAGOP would have learned the lesson the Dems had learned during the Coverdell-Fowler runoff of 1992.

      No chance of that though.

      For the record, Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Gary Peters (D-MI) won reelection with lower percentages than Perdue received in 2020. That should illustrate the insanity of the GA runoff law.

    17. EML says:

      I wouldn’t call it insanity. I understand the idea behind getting away from FPTP and going to runoffs or RCV, I just wish they’d do it in Dem states instead of Rep states. As it is, runoffs are an exclusively Republican problem: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Texas. It all goes back to southern Democrats wanting to keep their stranglehold on candidates and elections. Please don’t turn this into a what was the civil war about conversation.

    18. EML says:

      MSN: Lower income Americans cutting back on eating out.

      https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/lower-income-americans-are-starting-to-cut-back-restaurant-spending/ar-AA1028VL

      I don’t know about you, but I’m in the top 10% and I’ve been cutting back on eating out for months. Either it’s just me or the MSM is just catching on to it.

    19. Wes says:

      Bitterlaw’s the one who likes to argue about the Civil War even when it’s irrelevant, EML. I just think the GAGOP did something stupid by forcing candidates to win elections twice despite the chance of their being burned by the results.

      Changing the law to 50% never once benefited the GAGOP. Had Perdue been able to win without a 50% threshold, the Senate would have stayed in GOP hands rather than having its status in limbo for two months. Warnock may not have even won against Loeffler then because without a chance of flipping the chamber, the Dems may not have fought as hard as they did in the resulting runoffs.

    20. Wes says:

      In all the states you mentioned, EML, Louisiana was the only one before Georgia in 2020/’21 Republicans suffered in because of a runoff law.

      In 1986, Henson Moore was the frontrunner in the race to replace retiring Senator Russell Long. Moore won the first round but fell short of a majority. John Breaux was his Dem opponent and used his own bona fides as a relatively conservative Dem in a still-Dem state to beat Moore in the runoff 53-47. A decade later, Mary Landrieu beat Woody Jenkins in a runoff despite Jenkins’ similarly winning the first round. In 2003, Kathleen Blanco also lost the first round, this time for Governor, but won the runoff against Bobby Jindal.

      All of this occurred before the Pelican State shifted toward a locally GOP-dominant state. Since then, Republicans have dominated the state’s elections with the exception of Landrieu’s 2008 election and Jon Bel Edwards’s two wins for Governor.

      Georgia Republicans were too cute by half in reinstating the old 50% threshold and suffered in 2021 because of their cupidity.

    21. Tgca says:

      Hmmm…I just had this discussion with a gay friend the other day about whether it’s on some people’s mind eating out locally because generally many of the food servers around Fort Lauderdale are gay, and people don’t want any f*cking Monkey Pox because it’s east to transmit it via touching fabrics and other items.

      Will people trust these gay men do not have Monkey Pox when the disease is currently over 99% gay men and can transmit to your napkin, utensils, or dishes if handled by an infected person serving you?

      I once saw a gay food server in whip out his pierced penis in a restaurant to show customers so I learned anything can happen with gay food servers.

      Not that I’m being judgmental or anything like that…riiiiiiiight?

    22. EML says:

      I am fairly well convinced that if the two 2020 Georgia Senate elections had been head to head with no runoffs, Republicans would’ve won both. Which is why I think it is quite absurd to suggest that in the 2022 environment, there is even a chance of Herschel Walker losing. He is not the greatest candidate, but 2020 was just the perfect storm of bad system in Georgia, anti Trump mania, and perhaps some election fraud thrown in.

    23. Bitterlaw says:

      On Discovery they are going to have a show about sharks that walk on land. WTF. Seems like this may be a bad idea for people AND sharks.

    24. Just Fill Out The Census says:

      UFFFFF! Warnock my man laying it down HARD on Walker!

    25. Wes says:

      I’m not sure Loeffler would have won, EML. She ran a weak campaign and never really used the reams of disqualifying material at her disposal against Warnock. Perdue almost certainly would have won since he finished several points ahead of Ossoff and nearly secured a majority even with the Libertarian on the ballot.

    26. EML says:

      They are called alligators. And they live in the hellscape called Florida.

    27. Wes says:

      Just remember Census told us 2014 would be another 1998. Of course 2014 was the best second midterm for the GOP since 1918, so maybe Census isn’t the best prognosticator of political outcomes.

    28. EML says:

      Wes, I’m just saying that the combined R vote in the 2020 special surpassed the combined D vote. And I am fairly well convinced in a 1 on 1 battle on election day, Loeffler would’ve won. The runoff making it a referendum on Trump sunk both Perdue and Loeffler. She was not the greatest candidate, just like Herschel today, but in Nov 2020, she most likely would’ve won.

      I am all for getting rid of runoffs and jungle primaries.

    29. Wes says:

      For anyone unaware, alligators are crocodilians. Crocodilians and birds are the last remaining archosaurs. Archosaurs are the clade of animals dinosaurs were the most famous members of.

    30. Bitterlaw says:

      https://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/landshark/2832305

      Sharks have been a problem on land since the 1970s

    31. Tgca says:

      Btw, the US Monkey Pox cases in the last month total over 10% of the annual HIV infection rate.

      Not saying it’s going to happen but if the Monkey Pox rate of infection continues as is among gay men without exponentially increasing by some factor, then we could see close to 50,000 Monkey Pox infections within in a year but any widespread infection would probably result in a higher exponential spread and result in a much higher infection rate among gay men, say a few hundred thousand since it’s so easily transmittable via touch.

      Time will tell if enough people curb their behaviors or get vaccinated timely to nip it in the bud.

      Doocy: If things are going so great, then why is it that WH officials are trying to redefine recession?

      Doocy: “If we all understand [it] to be 2 consecutive quarters…& you have WH…say…that’s not…how is that not redefining [it]?

    33. Wes says:

      It’s possible, EML. I remain unconvinced though simply because Loeffler was not a compelling candidate at all whereas we know Warnock managed to him up turnout among his base despite his multiple moral peccadilloes.

    34. EML says:

      2014 was the best Republican year in all of our lifetimes. Well all of us except for Walt of course. 2022 is likely to be the best year since 1912 (291R-134D).

    35. Tgca says:

      Actually, a number of southern states have alligators with the most being in Louisiana.

    36. Wes says:

      You mean 1920, EML. Republicans went 302-133 in the House and 60-36 in the Senate after that election.

    37. Wes says:

    38. EML says:

      Somewhat surprised that the turds at RRH aren’t hand wringing over the reconciliation bill.

      Wes (or anyone) I don’t suppose you can cut and paste the link in post #5 and let me know if it works for you.

    39. jason says:

      Since Kemp is only one point ahead of Abrams in this poll it is not surprising Walker is down by 9.

      But Kemp is probably up by a lot more than 1 so Walker is a lot closer than 9.

    40. jason says:

      Geezus.

    41. Tgca says:

      34. Tina

      That is a link of him discussing his suicide attempts and depression over a break-up.

      Major depression appears to have both genetic and environmental links, and it’s scientifically curious as to why it impacts people differently under the same stresses. It could simply be due to chemical imbalances in people vary or also external stimuli where some may be more focused on it through learned behavior.

      No one really knows but it is a real mental disease that I’m not sure we will figure out anytime soon.

    45. Tina says:

      They argued about what a recession is. Doocy mentioned the Biden economist in 2008, who defined the recession as two quarters of negative gdp.

      This economist now changed his definition.

      And doocy caught the press secretary in a lie.

      Hawaiians love Spam for some reason. I knew a few people from their when I lived in CA and they raved over it.

      When I was kid, my mom would serve Spam because it was an easy dinner choice, as she was a terrible cook who made everything from a can or box.

      Besides peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or oatmeal 3 times daily served with with watered down canned milk when times were at the roughest, I practically grew up on boxed mashed potatoes, canned soups, canned stew, canned chili, frozen beef patties, and frozen fish sticks, not to mention those disgusting TV dinners with Salisbury steak.

      But in the summer we got to eat nice cold macaroni salad made with elbow macaroni, globs of Mayo, and thick cut onion pieces at least 3 times a week because it was quick and easy to make in bulk and store. I love onions but I’m not a fan of thumb-sized chunks in a salad.

      Biden Admin to Declare Monkeypox a Nationwide Health Emergency

      So if it’s a highly infectious disease that’s a national emergency and there is an existing vaccine, shouldn’t those that are at most risk, the gay men spreading this disease be required to be vaxed?

      Isn’t it only fair to require gay men to show a vax card to enter public places or eat in restaurants to protect the health and well-being of others? After all, vaccination is not just about you but about everyone.

      Shouldn’t employers require gay men be vaccinated or risk losing their job?

      What about the military? Hospitals? Shouldn’t all gay men be required to be vaxed to keep their jobs?

      Gay men make up over 99% of US cases and have now infected two toddlers per the CDC.

      Should the gay men really be around children, teaching them in school? The Monkey Pox is rarely fatal but it can be a very painful long-lasting disease for up to a month or more.

      Should little kids be exposed to that?

      I only bring up these issues because many in the gay community made many of these and similar arguments against those without a COVID vax.

      Let’s see if the gay community is now willing to accept the requirements it posed on others during the COVID pandemic.

      Maybe liver and sardines are the only foods worse than spam. I just shudder thinking of eating them.

      (1/5) Ukraine’s counter-offensive in Kherson is gathering momentum. Their forces have highly likely established a bridgehead south of the Ingulets River, which forms the northern boundary of Russian-occupied Kherson.

      (2/5) Ukraine has used its new long range artillery to damage at least three of the bridges across the Dnipro River which Russia relies upon to supply the areas under its control.

      (3/5) One of these, the 1000 metre long Antonivsky bridge near Kherson city, was damaged last week. Ukraine struck it again on 27 July 2022 and it is highly likely that the crossing is now unusable.

      (4/5) Russia’s 49th Army is stationed on the west bank of the Dnipro River and now looks highly vulnerable.

      (5/5) Similarly, Kherson city, the most politically significant population centre occupied by Russia, is now virtually cut off from the other occupied territories. Its loss would severely undermine Russia’s attempts to paint the occupation as a success.

      Blueprint polling a Democratic polling firm with questionable accuracy. Here is a quote from their website:

      “Democratic political practitioners know the power of the Big Lie. We’ve seen hard evidence in the results of every GOP primary this midterm cycle. Our survey of Georgia Republicans released earlier this week reminds us of the challenges that progressives face in November and begs the question: Why do so many voters embrace this Electoral Fraud fantasy, given the mountain of evidence to the contrary.”

      The cash value is only 470 million if you opt out of the annuity of 34 million a year for 20 years.

      wes, if you are a beginner with anchovies, you can gradually start incorporating them into your dishes.

      Start with anchovy paste, mix a little of it in salad dressings, pasta sauce, etc.

      Pretty soon you will be an anchovy pro and will be eating them right out of the can.

      Absolutely disgusting.

    90. jason says:

      “Anchovies. You either love ’em, or you hate ’em, right? WRONG. In my experience, everybody loves anchovies—it’s just that some people don’t know they do. Talk to almost any chef or experienced home cook, and they’ll tell you that anchovies are one of the industry’s favorite not-so-secret secret weapons. Because they’re a concentrated source of glutamic and inosinic acid—two molecules responsible for triggering our sensation of savoriness—they’re irreplaceable for adding depth of flavor and a meaty backbone to, well, pretty much anything. Think you’re an exception to the rule? So do the long string of dinner guests to whom I’ve surreptitiously fed anchovies in various sauces, soups, salads, and stews.”

      I hope none of that chef’s unwitting victims had a seafood allergy.

      Those are good too. But I like the tiny smoked brisling sardines in olive oil.

      “Poland, a Warsaw Pact nation under the Soviet Union’s boot for more than four decades, is today Moscow’s harshest critic in Europe. To face down a belligerent Russia, officials here are vowing to double the size of their armed forces to 300,000 troops, even as some politicians seek to loosen strict gun laws to put more weapons in civilian hands.

      About 94 percent of Poles see Russia as a “major threat,” up from 65 percent in 2018, according to a new Pew Research survey. And 14 years after doing away with the draft, a plurality of Poles favors bringing back some form of army conscription.

      As they step up to be counted, the country with the lowest rate of gun ownership in Europe is witnessing a surge of enrollment in its Territorial Defense Force, akin to America’s National Guard, as well as sharp interest in combat and survivalist courses and slots for training at gun ranges.”

      So Trump’s freedom depends on what the Democratic puppeteers have Garland do. In other words, Trump is at the mercy of the Biden administration’s decision as to whether to prosecute. They hate him with a red hot passion so what do you think? We’ve seen what lengths they’ll go to for the last six years.

      Once we have it under control you can go back to being promiscuous pig slut whores in your open relationships…as this is why you fought so hard for equality in gay marriage.

      So again for the moment control yourself… at least until you find another disease to spread among the population.

      We need you gay men to do your part too. No judgment though because it’s not like you’re a real danger to the community like owning a gun or supporting Trump or anything like that.

      Also, I noticed you just blew by Trump’s comments that no one has gotten to the bottom of 9/11. Since you would enthusiastically vote for Trump, do you agree with MAGA daddy that no one has gotten to the bottom of 9/11?

      Actually, we have gotten to the bottom of 9/11. Bin Laden did it and planned it for years. However, Trumpers who love their guy will say we haven’t gotten to the bottom of it so long as MAGA daddy says so. Being against the words of Trump is a mortal sin in the religion of Trump.

If properly prepared, it also contains all the amino acids needed for proper human diet that the body can’t manufacture and has many needed minerals and vitamins.

      It is recommended by nutritionists often with people who have certain medical conditions or suffer from obesity.

      It’s been a part of the Asian and southeast diet for well over a thousand years.

      But Amoral Scumbag actually thinks the DOJ is out to get Hunter Biden…what a freakin moron.

      “One of the whistleblowers claimed the FBI assistant special agent in charge of the Washington field office, Timothy Thibault, shut down a line of inquiry into Hunter Biden in October 2020 despite some of the details being known to be true at the time.

      “A whistleblower also said Thibault “ordered closed” an “avenue of additional derogatory Hunter Biden reporting,” according to Grassley, even though “all of the reporting was either verified or verifiable via criminal search warrants.” The senator said Thibault “ordered the matter closed without providing a valid reason as required” and that FBI officials “subsequently attempted to improperly mark the matter in FBI systems so that it could not be opened in the future,” according to the disclosures.”

      “Nobody’s gotten to the bottom of 9/11, unfortunately. And they should have.”

      – Trump is a 9/11 truther. He’s long been a conspiracy theorist and that’s one thing his supporters like about him.

    182. jason says:

      I didn’t say Trump is working class.

      – At least you’re being honest. You don’t care one iota about policy. You care only about being mad at those you feel have aggrieved you.

    186. jason says:

      BS.

      That statement does not make him a truther. A lot of people believe the Saudi 9/11 terrorists had more backing than has been divulged. I don’t necessarily agree but it doesn’t make you a 9/11 truther.

      Trump remembered the 9/11 victims each year he was President with speeches that had nothing to do with any 9/11 trutherisms.

      Go lie somewhere else.

      – What Jason fraud has always been too stupid to understand is Trump has no core set of beliefs other than personal enrichment.

      Had Trump run in 2016 as a Democrat and coopted Bernie’s agenda, Jason fraud would’ve hated him. In fact, Jason fraud hated Trump right up until he won.

      But the one thing Trump has always understood is it’s very easy to pull the wool over the eyes of people who are motivated by grievance and God knows the Republican base voters are focused almost solely on grievances, whether real or perceived.

    189. jason says:

      – Ok. So if Donnie “fire can’t melt steel” Trump believes that, then why is he hosting a Saudi golf event?

      If Donnie thinks the Saudi’s played a bigger role and are hiding it, shouldn’t Mr. Tough Guy say he wants nothing to do with them until they come clean?

      Regardless, let’s not forget on the afternoon of 9/11 Trump was on NY1 bragging that he now had the tallest building in NYC because both towers had collapsed.

    191. jason says:

      Had Trump run in 2016 as a Democrat and coopted Bernie’s agenda, Jason fraud would’ve hated him.”

      This is true. I hate socialists. I would have hated a socialist Trump.

      But he ran as a R and coopted the agenda of conservatives as far as judicial appointments, the military, deregulation, energy independence, immigration, taxes, the MSM, etc., so that is why I support him.

      It is widely reported that these are large ammunition stores, kept far behind the frontlines, but now within reach of the newly arrived Western weaponry, including American Himars and Polish Krab howitzers.

      “Listen to that silence,” said Yuri Bereza, a bearded 52-year-old commanding a volunteer unit tasked with defending Slovyansk. For well over an hour one recent morning, on a visit to a network of defensive trenches east of the city, not a single explosion could be heard.

      “That’s all because of the artillery you’ve given us – because of its accuracy,” said Bereza. “Before, Russia had 50 gun barrels for every one we had. Now it’s more like five to one. Their advantage is now insignificant. You could call it parity.””

      This is what happens when the former president swoops in for a guy half of Republicans don’t like. And half didn’t like him *even after the pollster noted the Trump endorsement.*

    244. jason says:

      I do think Oz is the best candidate of the 3 front runners for the R nomination, sue me.

      And let’s be honest, Amoral Scumbag would have said so too if Oz had not been endorsed by Trump. He is actually the least “MAGA” of the 3 front runners and is much more typical of the candidates Amoral Scumbag pretends to like than Barnette or McCormick.

      Oz as a TV personality should be well equipped to deal with a hostile media. As a minority of Turkish origin, he should be able to make some inroads among the middle eastern/Asian voters in PA.

      Fetterman is probably getting more of the blue collar voter than he should, and Oz has to try to get everyone voting for Mastriano to vote for him too.

      Mastriano and Oz need to “feed off each other”. If I drive a half hour around here, I will see 200 Mastriano lawn signs and 5 Oz signs and 10 Shapiro signs and 3 Fetterman signs. On the other hand, Oz is probably getting suburban/moderate votes Mastriano is not getting.

      The challenge for both of them is to prevent ticket splitting or leaving the race blank.

    245. jason says:

      and the actual Party establishment is too weak to have any influence.”

      Zzzzz… Amoral Scumbag still pining for brokered conventions

      Guess what, the days party bosses and country club elites pick candidates are over and they are not coming back.

      If the R party wants to stay viable and win elections, it will have to appeal to a wider audience than the college educated suburban and rural vote coalition that used to be enough to win.

      You need candidates that appeal to the working class and minorities and small business owners. You are not going to get them in Amoral Scumbag’s smoke filled rooms populated by people who sneer at the great unwashed voters.

    246. jason says:

      because too many R primary voters now confuse entertainment with electability”

      Nah, it’s the other way around.

      It is the R elites who are confused. The R primary voter has changed.

      That is why I say Trump is not the cause of the changes in the R party, he is a symptom of them.

      Contrary to Amoral Scumbag, I don’t think I represent the R party, that is why I left, nothing to do with Trump.

      I might not agree with some of the things that attract voters to the R nowadays, especially protectionism and isolationism. But without these voters the R party has no future.

    247. jason says:

      More importantly:

      “The Republicans defeated the Democrats 10-0 in the annual Congressional baseball game at Nationals Park. Congressman Greg Steube (R-FL) led the way, throwing five shutout innings.

      Rep. August Pfluger (R-TX) replaced Steube; he struck out two batters as the bases were loaded in the bottom of the sixth inning.

      Senator Jon Ossoff (D-GA) allowed five runs in the seventh inning as Republicans expanded their lead to 10-0.

      Pfluger closed the game in the seventh inning for the Republicans.”

    248. Hugh says:

      Fox News polls are a little better then Quinnipiac. Their polls are designed to give democrats hope. Walker will win. Two bad candidates in a red year in a state that fixed it election integrity issues. It’ll be a 3 point win. Oz has a shot.

      – Strange. I was assured by Jason fraud Oz was the best candidate. The last two high profile candidates I remember who took a trip during a hard-fought race were Newt and Romney.

      Newt took a two-week Greek Isles cruise in the Summer of 2011 after he moved to the top of the field for the 2012 presidential primary race. Mitt and his family went jet skiing in New Hampshire in late June 2012 and let Obama crush him unanswered on the airwaves.

      A wave is coming just like it did in 2010. But the wave in 2010 wasn’t big enough to overcome the crappy candidates the party nominated in Delaware, Colorado, and Nevada.

      Candidate selection matters. Very online MAGA dopes don’t seem to understand that.

      Well, here’s the sad truth you don’t want to accept. MAGA daddy stuck the party with some crappy candidates solely because he wanted to demonstrate he still matters in the primary.

      And let’s be honest, Amoral Scumbag would have said so too if Oz had not been endorsed by Trump.

      – LOL! No. Unlike you, I don’t fall for celebrity candidates with no track record for campaigning and no paper trail or history of consistent conservative positions. Oz failed on all accounts. He’s a liberal who supported abortion, Fauci, and masks. It’s no wonder he’s failed to unite the party. And even better, he decided to go on an extended vacation in the middle of race he’s losing to a guy who hasn’t campaigned in two months because of a debilitating stroke.

      McCormick was clearly the best candidate for the race. He had a good business background, he had the financial means to support his race, he had a strong donor network, and, most importantly, he had a reasonably good conservative track record.

      He’d be in a much better position against Fetterman because the vast bulk of the party found him acceptable unlike Oz, a huckster.

      As for the party, no one’s calling for a brokered convention. Instead, those of us who actually care about winning contested races believe the party apparatus, whether that be the NRSC, NRCC, RGA, or aligned super pacs, should intervene in races to protect the party from crap candidates as they have in MO with your boy Greitens.

      – Are you blind or just lying? Go back and read what I wrote about Jeb’s campaign in the Fall of 2015. His campaign was a disaster and he, sadly, turned out to be a disaster candidate. I wrote often in that period he was running a bad campaign and needed to retool quickly before it was too late. He didn’t and he lost.

      Again though, the only people who continue to mention Jeb in this forum are you and Jason fraud. Jeb quit the 2016 primary race at the end of February 2016 and I haven’t mentioned him, other than in the context of you or Jason fraud claiming I still talk about him, since them.

    257. Robbie says:

      One thing about this forum has become clear during the Trump years and reflects what’s, sadly, happening to the party base.

      McCormick was an ok candidate who could also win the GE, I said so many times before. But he was extremely vulnerable on the “China agent” issue (which cost him the primary btw) and there is no evidence he was a stronger candidate against Fetterman than Oz, none.

      – Or spending to support Mike Castle against COD. Or spending to support Sue Lowden against Angle. Or spending to block Todd Akin in MO. Or spending to block Greitens in MO (which they’re doing).

      Republicans actually did this quite a bit in 2014. They spent against Greg Brannon in NC. They spent against Dr. Milton Wolfe in KS. They spent against Chris McDaniel in MS.

      In 2014, it turned out that spending to support and/or block certain candidates did work when done early enough to matter. For whatever reason, the party gave up on that and has continually booted away multiple races believing the primary voters would come to their senses.

      – Primary polling consistently showed the voters had a negative view of Oz as a general election candidate. The same polling showed primary voters had a much more favorable opinion of McCormick.

      Trump has the power to tip the scales of primary races all over the country. Unfortunately in some cases – like PA with Oz and OH with JD, he has taken a candidate that probably wouldn’t have won without him and made them the nominee. My hope is it doesn’t hurt the red wave.

      Again, Trump is trying to show with his endorsements that’s he the king of the primary voters. He’s not trying to pick the candidates best suited to win the general election.

      JD Vance’s general election strategy seems to be that the only race he had to actively win was the primary. Pat Roberts had that same idea back in 2014 and needed a late rescue mission from the NRSC to save him.

      I thought Vance was highly preferable to Mandel, but I assumed he would wage a campaign to win by a lot and not just edge ahead at the end. Just because it’s a wave year doesn’t mean the race is a gimme.

      I think Vance steered so far towards the MAGA right that he’s created problems for himself with the rest of the party. Unlike Oz, they should be easier to overcome, but Vance’s image before he ran is nothing like the image he created of himself in the primary.

      Tim Ryan is almost certainly going to lose, but he’s running to win. He’s raising lots of money and he’s going on FoxNews in an effort to persuade disaffected R’s he’s acceptable.

She did not miss a foul shot the entire season. Of course, she missed both and we lost 30-29. But I’m mostly over it.

      My guess is Herschel Walker will need a Kemp win of at least 5 points, maybe even more, to drag him over the finish line ahead of Warnock.

      Earlier today, Walker, who was joined on stage by Newt!, challenged Warnock to the very Newty idea of Lincoln Douglass style debates.

      It’s a terrible idea that could only come from one-trick pony Newt. Warnock, a pro when it comes to extemporaneous speaking since he’s a pastor, would leave Walker in the dust.

      Walker’s best strategy is to adopt the Fetterman strategy. Find a reason to stay off the campaign trail for the next three months so he can’t say something stupid.

      Suffolk poll
      2024 National Republican Primary

      Donald Trump – 43%
      Ron DeSantis – 34%
      Mike Pence – 7%
      Nikki Haley – 3%
      Liz Cheney – 3%
      Chris Christie – 1%
      Mike Pompeo – 1%

      – This poll shows what other polls taken recently show as well. Trump is below 50% nationally among primary voters. That’s no small thing either. A year ago, Trump was approaching 70% or higher.

      The more this becomes a two-person race (I’m assuming DeSantis runs), the more that 50% threshold begins to matter. If Trump continues to slide towards 40%, donors are going to become even more vocal and helpful to DeSantis.

      Trump’s a spent force nationally. That doesn’t mean he can’t win a primary in a fractured field, but he’s got eight years of controversy and scandal that he’s towing along with him. In 2016, it was Hillary who was carrying decades worth of scandal.

      Now, in fairness, just because the less educated group prefers Trump doesn’t mean they would never vote for DeSantis.

      They might, but the point I have been making, as well as Phil and others, is that this is NOT a given. DeSantis will have to earn this vote.

      “Dig into the crosstabs on the first-place vote and you’ll find that support for the two candidates divides along educational lines. Among Republicans who didn’t finish college, Trump leads DeSantis by double digits. But the two are tied at 40 percent apiece among college grads and DeSantis leads by 16 among postgrads. Unsurprisingly, differences of opinion are similar when you focus on income. Trump doubles DeSantis’s support among those making less than $50,000 per year, 50/24. But among all Republicans making less than $100,000 per year, they’re tied at 34 percent. And among those making more than $140,000, DeSantis leads 46/35.

      It’s MAGA versus the country-clubbers in 2024, except DeSantis might be able to poach just enough from Trump’s base to tip the primary”

    361. jason says:

      Here is what the surrender Neville Allen and the other Putin appeasers here are proposing would really look like. Some excerpts from an excellent article.

      “What will Putin do next and what is he preparing for? Russia is preparing to legalize the occupation of captured Ukrainian territories. Sometimes it is also called annexation. The practice of raising Russian flags with the playing of the Soviet-Russian national anthem in captured Ukrainian towns, of course, does not cause a great stir.

      Usually, such acts of vandalism against international law and all post-war agreements between countries take place in the presence of several local traitors – collaborators, representatives of Moscow and a dozen people of retirement age. But Putin doesn’t care about the picture anymore.

      Putin wants to accomplish what he set out to do – to “join” Ukrainian territories with Russia according to a scenario similar to the Crimean one.

      And after that, the Kremlin wants to announce to the West that from this moment the war takes on a new meaning. American “Himars” will fire at Russian troop concentrations, command headquarters, and warehouses with ammunition already on the territory, which in Russia is considered as a part of the Russian Federation.

      At the same time, the pro-Russian lobby in the West will do its job, cutting aid to Ukraine and bringing into the public space narratives about the inadmissibility of direct confrontation between NATO countries and Russia due to the supply of weapons and shelling of objects on the territories that the Russians recognize as theirs.

      …..

      So now Putin wants to stop the fire from the Ukrainian side, without stopping at the destruction of Ukraine. And be sure – the scenario of North and South Korea (for those naive people who think that Russia will stop at the borders of Donetsk and Luhansk regions) is impossible.

      Putin hates Ukraine so deeply and comprehensively, his propaganda has pumped the heads of Russians so tightly that, while seizing any settlement in the Luhansk Region, he is already planning a siege of Kharkiv and bombing of the Dnipro.

      And for this, he does not critically need high-precision weapons and microcircuits from Taiwan. He is ready to burn the cities with his primitive, still Soviet “Grads”, which cover territories with square kilometers, but not precisely hit a specific target, like the American “Himars”. The “Grad” projectile does not have a GPS-navigation system, it flies anywhere according to the ballistic trajectory – to the position of Ukrainian troops, to a school, kindergarten, hospital or simply burns crops in the field.

      To replenish the ammunition of these “Grads” at Russian factories working in several shifts, Putin needs time. In the form of this “truce”. But remember – Putin is preparing for a new war.

      The conclusion will not be too original. Ukraine needs weapons and ammunition. All this is needed by the country, which, sorry to remind you, disarmed and transferred its cruise missiles to Russia, which is now shelling Ukraine with the same missiles. Together with nuclear weapons, the peaceful and naive young state also destroyed its own strategic aviation. Which could also carry ordinary weapons. The same missiles and aerial bombs that would now stop the aggressor on the front line.

      Will someone ever count in money how much of Ukraine’s resources it has put on the altar of world peace? It is somewhat inconvenient to remind you now, but this disarmament took place under pressure and under the support of the West. So now is the time to right this historical wrong. Yes, it is painful for the economy and expensive to send one’s own resources and money to distant Ukraine. It is about a lot of money and a lot of resources. Much more than has already been sent.

      But it will be even more expensive not to do it. And then with the same “Himars” to hit their own infrastructure – excellent autobahns, bridges, schools, which the Russians will use for their headquarters. To stop rusty Russian tanks already on the territory of NATO countries.

      Do you think this is a fantastic scenario? And I think not. Putin hates you, our dear Western partners, as sincerely as he hates Ukrainians. At least, in Poland, which is a neighbor of Ukraine, this is understood very clearly. The Poles have already taken the course to create the most powerful land forces in Europe. And they call their country the one that is at the front.

      Therefore, the best offer for all Europeans (and therefore for Americans, who will not silently watch the war in Europe) is to increase support for Ukraine. So as not to pay with blood for your own freedom. After all, Putin needs Ukraine not only as a territory. And as an industrial, energy and food base for the great march to the West. Keep this in mind when your government decides on aid to Ukraine”

It’s doable if he makes an all out effort to do so. It’s up to him and it will take a lot of work. He’s not anywhere near there yet…he does start out ahead of Bush, MCCain, and Romney with the working class but that’s not saying that much.

      Trump built a relationship with these people over a year before running in 2016 and then continued that relationship.

      I believe that is the GOP best long-term strategy. Ditch the suburban moms in favor of the working class if you have to chose between the two since suburban moms are unreliable and generally Dem-lite on many issues.

      “Russia conducted its first test of the Sarmat, an intercontinental ballistic missile that carries a heavy nuclear payload, on April 20. Vladimir Putin and his advisers have issued nuclear warnings throughout the war in Ukraine, threatening the U.S. and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization with attack if they escalate their involvement. Moscow recently threatened Sweden and Finland with a pre-emptive strike if they join NATO.”

      and

      “If Finland wants to join this bloc, then our goal is absolutely legitimate — to question the existence of this state. This is logical,” said Aleksey Zhuravlyov, 59, the deputy chairman of the Russian parliament’s defense committee, said in an interview with The Mirror. “The Finns in general should be grateful to Russia for their statehood, for the fact that Finland exists as a country.”

      “If the United States threatens our state, it’s good: here is the Sarmat [Satan-2] for you, and there will be nuclear ashes from you if you think that Russia should not exist,” he continued. “And Finland says that it is at one with the USA. Well, get in line.”

      The Satan-2 is a ballistic missile capable of carrying 10 to 15 nuclear warheads, with an estimated destructive power of three megatons each.”

      This is much more of a direct threat than “demands to have tariffs lifted” ( a good idea btw, would reduce inflation in the US and eliminate a stupid tax on US consumers),

      Note to DeSantis: There are a lot more voters that are no grads than postgrads.

    380. Gordon Allen says:

      Actually he has not specifically threatened the US with nuclear attack. He has threatened nuclear use IN Ukraine over some potential actions, or NATO sites in Europe. But a nuclear attack on mainland USA, I don’t think so.
      China has now threatened to shoot US aircraft down in International Air Space, an absolute Act of War.
      to which you have no comment.

    381. jason says:

      I believe that is the GOP best long-term strategy. Ditch the suburban moms in favor of the working class if you have to chose between the two since suburban moms are unreliable and generally Dem-lite on many issues.”

      I doubt your advice will be heeded. The country club Rs will be climbing all over themselves with the “f–k the working class”, “let’s go for the wine moms” meme.

      DeSantis will have to have a lot of resolve to ignore them. So far I have not seen that resolve.

      Before Amoral Scumbag says I am advocating to “ignore the suburbs” nothing is farther from the truth. The suburbs have too many voters to ignore. And as Bitter points out, there are working class people in the suburbs. There are minorities in the suburbs. There are small business owners in the suburbs. But liberal wine sipping moms should not be the focus of the GOP if they want to win elections.

    382. jason says:

      “If the United States threatens our state, it’s good: here is the Sarmat [Satan-2] for you, and there will be nuclear ashes from you if you think that Russia should not exist,” he continued. “And Finland says that it is at one with the USA. Well, get in line.”

      It was one of Putin’s henchmen who said it, but nothing gets said to the press in Russia without Putin’s approval.

    383. Gordon Allen says:

      That’s not I believe an accurate quote. He referred to the Satan as a powerful new Strategic weapon which could carry out all strategic tasks. Which is true of all their strategic nuclear weapons, and in fact their only conceivable use( strategic meaning the US”). This has been declared Russian policy for 5 decades and really not new.
      Shooting down US planes in international air space, to prevent a peaceful civilian passenger flight, as opposed to a military action in Ukraine, is NEW.
      And why is it so hard for you to criticize China, as opposed to Russia?? It obviously is.

    384. jason says:

      China has now threatened to shoot US aircraft down in International Air Space, an absolute Act of War.
      to which you have no comment.”

      Actually, no Chinese government official made any such threat.

      A “propagandist” columnist tweeted:

      “If US fighter jets escort Pelosi’s plane into Taiwan, it is [an] invasion,” tweeted Hu Xijin, a columnist for the Chinese Communist Party-controlled Global Times. “The [People’s Liberation Army] has the right to forcibly dispel Pelosi’s plane and the US fighter jets, including firing warning shots and making tactical movement of obstruction.

      “If ineffective, then shoot them down,” Hu added.

      And even then, a lot of caveats. IF “US fighter jets accompany it” (not normal in a diplomatic mission) and “if warnings are ignored” blah blah blah.

      https://www.newsweek.com/no-china-didnt-threaten-shoot-down-pelosis-plane-over-taiwan-visit-1729334

    385. jason says:

      And why is it so hard for you to criticize China, as opposed to Russia?? It obviously is.”

      Because Russia is actually engaged in a war that is killing tens of thousands of people and displacing millions, while China is making its usual empty threats.

      Why is it so hard for you to criticize Russia as opposed to China? It obvious is.

    386. jason says:

      Shooting down US planes in international air space, to prevent a peaceful civilian passenger flight”

      Zzzzz… as far as we know there are no “US fighter jets accompanying Pelosi’s plane” so there is no actual threat to any “civilian passenger flight” in the first place.

    387. Gordon Allen says:

      Soviet/Russian policy has ALWAYS been to threaten use of Nuclear weapons for any threatened military action against Russia on or near it’s borders. in fact. it’s codified in their Law. Not new.
      Threatening to shoot down a civilian airliner, and any escorting Fighters, in international( not national) Air Space is radically different and NEW.
      Your comment on China’s threats??

    388. jason says:

      Neville Allen is perfectly fine with Putin invading Ukraine, killing tens of thousands, displacing millions, torturing, raping, exiling…

      But a columnist “threatening” Pelosi’s plane?

      Wow, THAT is a real problem.

      Neville Allen gives “useful idiots” a bad name.

    389. jason says:

      Your comment on China’s threats??”

      Zzzzzz…..

    390. jason says:

      Note to Neville Allen:

      1) There is a real war going on in Ukraine.

      2) Nobody is going to shoot down Pelosi’s plane.

      Poll: 4 in 10 Americans Forced to Cut Back on Groceries Due to Bidenflation

      This is real! People are feeling the pain at the grocery stores.

      I’m given up snacks like tofu ice cream because it’s just getting too expensive.

      No more tofu biscuits for the dog either. She’s not happy!

      I’ve already dropped below my ideal weight of 105 and stopped wearing my spandex out because it’s too loose fitting. I can only imagine how much weight all the FAT Americans are shredding as they are forced to forego eating due to all this Pootin inflation.

      Paid menstrual leave is a RIGHT! It’s implied in the US Constitution just like ABORTION and WI-FI.

      Paid menstrual leave is a “fundamental worker’s right” that should be guaranteed by employers, according to a recent Teen Vogue op-ed that makes the case for the policy, claiming that workers are not “children to be managed by paternalistic bosses” and should not be forced to use “normal sick days” during menstrual periods.

    396. Gordon Allen says:

      Worthless discussing an obsession. Everybody is bothered by killing, in Ukraine or elsewhere. That’s a strawman, and is not the point. We can’t set national policy on evert/yhere “killing” takes place. I’m done. Earth could be invaded by Alien Space ships and all jason would talk about is Ukraine. Once it was clear that Putin couldn’t overrun Ukraine it was no longer a decisively important national security interest of the US.
      A blockade of Taiwan would be.

    397. Tgca says:

      Let’s not forget about men here either.

      It’s absolutely imperative that men manage their healthcare necessities too.

      Libido health is important to men. Failure to manage libido health results in many known health conditions including testosterone deficiencies, weight gain, heart disease, prostate disease, etc.

      That’s why employers should offer LIBIDO Leave for men in conjunction with MENSTRUAL Leave for women.

    398. jason says:

      Once it was clear that Putin couldn’t overrun Ukraine it was no longer a decisively important national security interest of the US.”

      Fortunately nobody in any kind of responsible leadership position in the US or Europe (or anywhere else) believes that.

    399. jason says:

      hen not arguing about 5-10 mile advances in eastern Ukraine,”

      How many miles are too much?

      Right now the Russians are about 100 to 150 miles into Eastern AND Southern Ukraine.

      That is what, 20 to 30 times more than 5-10 miles

      You lie so much you don’t know when one lie ends and the next begins

    400. Gordon Allen says:

      A threat to shoot down a US plane, if it successfully deters the flight, is an opening salvo in a potential air and sea blockade. On what grounds is this being made that would differ from any commercial flight??
      it has long been expected that a blockade would be tried before an invasion.

    401. Gordon Allen says:

      Whether or not planned, the flight must land in Taiwan now, or we have opened a wide door to our primary enemy. I think XI has decided the time to force the issue is now, with a weak, distracted leadership in Washington, and some economic issues at home. We can’t appear to back down

    402. Tgca says:

      Why are we wasting time e talking about Ukraine?

      American don’t care anymore. It’s not on the list of top priorities.

      We have more important things to worry about like:

      Preferred pronouns
      Gay Monkey Pox spreading
      Menstrual leave
      Definition of a woman – which Congress should pass legislation on to codify it

    403. Tgca says:

      412

      Agreed! The US cannot cower to Chinese propaganda and threats, whether officially sanction by the Chinese gubbermint or not.

      I suggest Pelosi take her trip to Taiwan and take as many Dems with her as possible.

      If China goes through with its threat, there’s an upside to that for America so it’s not all bad.

    404. Gordon Allen says:

      The 5-10 miles was from the CURRENT line, and was clearly stated as such( numerous times). The front lines have barely moved even that far recently; there is a clear stalemate in Ukraine.
      BTW that’s all you have to say about a clear threat of an Act of War against the US by your pals.

      Neither are happening.

      Ahh… I see.

      The Russians have gone 100-150 miles into Ukraine (more in some places) but are moving slowly “recently”.

      So they are no threat.

      I got it.

      It time to remove the Biden crime family from U.S politics:

      “U.S. House Oversight Committee Republicans are demanding answers from Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm over her agency’s sale of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) to a Chinese energy company partially owned by President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s private equity firm.”

    424. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      415. “The 5-10 miles was from the CURRENT line, and was clearly stated as such( numerous times). The front lines have barely moved even that far recently; there is a clear stalemate in Ukraine”

      The reason there is a “stalemate” in the Ukraine, and possibly the Ukrainians will go on the offensive, is because NATO rushed a major amount of western weaponry to the Ukraine. Otherwise, it would be likely Putin would now be targeting the Baltics and Poland, and demanding the restoration of Cold War boundaries.

      This would have embolden China to take on the U.S. paper tiger. U.S. – NATO support of the Ukraine has strengthen Taiwan’s position. It has proved the West has the resolve to fight back.

      If this continues through winter, Europe is F*CKED as he directs sales to Asia who are all to eager to buy his energy supplies as he starves Europe of their needed resources.

      This is what weak leadership among both the European and US leaders resulted in.

      This is difficult to watch these punks beat the homeless as the guy cries in pain.

      Two of these punks are brothers, 18 and 20, that are charged with murder in another case where these videos were discovered on their phones during that investigation.

      They regularly filmed themselves beating homeless for a year as others cheered them on.

      I just don’t understand how one can have so much hate and rage directed at others but these guys appear to be white trash, as even the brothers’ mother was involved in the murder after the fact.

      I think these guys should get at least 20 years in jail. I hope they get prison justice too. They are worthless to society and the world would be a better place without them.

      I think it may be time to have an independent counsel investigate the FBI as well. This could weed out the bad apples though it could also tarnish the reputation of the FBI but what is the alternative if they can no longer be trusted?

      That’s like saying you have to be a judge to understand what is just and not.

      It’s a silly sophomoric argument that is up there with “my marriage is better than yours because I’ve never been divorced.”

      Many gay men are married and are in open relationships so by your logic because they are not divorced, they are better at marriage then someone who divorces due to infidelity and self-respect.

      Heed your own words about complexity of issues in the future.

      Taiwan is learning from the Ukraine:

      “Taiwan’s foreign minister said Sunday that his island nation is studying carefully Russia’s invasion of neighboring Ukraine for lessons applicable to its situation with China.

      “We try to see what we can learn from Ukraine in defending ourselves,” Foreign Minister Joseph Wu told host Fareed Zakaria in an interview on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” noting how the Russian invasion has unexpectedly bogged down.

      “There are two things, of course,” Wu said. “The first is asymmetric capability. Look at the Ukrainians, they use small personal weapons to go against a large enemy. And I think that is something we can learn from. In fact, we have been preparing for that, but we need to make more investment in this regard.”

      He added: “The second area we can learn from Ukraine is civil defense. Look at the Ukrainian people. All of the males are having the determination to defend the country. They want to serve in the military. They want to go to the war zones to fight against Russia. That kind of spirit is enviable for the Taiwanese people.”

      MSNBC’s take on Trump vs. DeSantis. Robbie troll is in agreement. I am sure of DeSantis gets the GOP nomination, MSNBC and concerned troll will suddenly realize how bad DeSantis really is:

      “Trump melts down as Fox News turns on MAGA, cancels Trump speech for new GOP darling DeSantis
      The splintering within Fox News continues as the network ignores a Trump speech to air Ron DeSantis instead. The former President hitting back and reportedly “tracking which hosts he can count on.” MSNBC’s Ari Melber reports on the devastating shift for Trump and one key Fox moment caught on tape, as a host bristles at polling showing most GOP voters want someone other than Trump in 2024”

      Having inappropriate relationships with children

    529. Bitterlaw says:

      I think I said that once. You are the one who constantly brings it up.

      The sad little clown is against me. His puppet master was too.

      Tell us again how depression is a weakness.

      Why? I said I was wrong. I buried my mistake and relive it every day. You keep bringing it up.

      Tell us again why you chose the screen name Bitter.

      I told that story. It was from when I had an AOL account in the early 1990s. I needed a screen name and everything I could think up as a variation of my real name was already taken. I just picked Bitterlaw because it was easy to remember. I have used it here since my first post in 2004.

      Now who sounds like the sad little loser playing the victim?

      You do, sad little clown. You do,

    530. Tgca says:

      So you admit all those things that define you as the person described so I stand my ground.

      You are a sad pathetic person constantly seeking sympathy.

      …and stop invoking LisaB when she’s not here to defend herself. What kind of a man are you that you can’t take a woman besting you? What a p*ssy you are! I bet you’d abandon your wife in an attack to save your own a$$ and then brag to everyone how you went and got help.

      Damn! She LisaB got you good. It’s hysterical!

    531. Bitterlaw says:

      I responded to your accusations and showed why you are a sad little clown.

      Why is saying that lisab is your puppet master an attack? It’s true.

    532. Bitterlaw says:

      Sad little clown is the kind of man who thinks Joe was a better Stooge than Curley.

    533. Tgca says:

      Ha! Ha! Ha!

      LisaB lives rent free in your head. We ALL know that.

      Big guy gets bested by a petite woman who routinely outsmarts him.

      What a p*ssy you are.

      She always bested you here. I was never her puppet just like Jadon and I were not allies. We just made a fool of you and you manufacture silly names to deflect from your defeat because you can’t accept your inadequacy. What a poor excuse for a man you are.

      LisaB never controlled me. She actually CONTROLLED you and forced you to go to a community meeting one night. Everyone here that night knows that and it’s been commented on by others before and you threw a hissy fit trying to argue it wasn’t so but the posts proved it. She ridiculed you beyond belief.

      Again, you’re such a P*SSY to be beaten down so badly by a petite woman and a gay man routinely. What kind of man are you?

      No wonder your wife is the breadwinner in your household and keeps the family afloat. Hopefully, she’ll never need you to defend her either.

    534. Bitterlaw says:

      Puppets never admit they have a puppet master.

      Lisab was a hate filled woman who despised Christians. She is a proud Socialist. She is a union official in a union that pushes a CRT agenda.

      Almost every poster at HHR is married or in a relationship. The sad little clown is alone.

    535. Bitterlaw says:

      Sad little clown will some day die alone. That must be a heavy burden to carry.

    536. Tgca says:

    537. Bitterlaw says:

      No. She was surrounded by her parents and siblings when they turned off the life support.

      You really brought that up trying to get at me. That is why you are scum.

    538. Tgca says:

      547

      Ha! Ha!

      You know nothing about my relationships because I’ve never discussed them.

      You are married because you can’t exist alone. You’re a needy man! That is clear from your posts.

      I suspect your marriage is one of convenience like your parents marriage appeared to be, based on your commentary of them in the past.

    539. Tgca says:

      550

      1st f all, that’s not the one I was referring to you but since you mentioned it…

      Yeah! Evidently a family she couldn’t wait to get away from that drove the poor girl to drastic measures.

      If you can’t take the heat, stay out of the kitchen you P*SSY.

      I told you before. You hit me. I’ll hit you back harder. Nothing is off limits with you any more since you crossed the line.

    540. Bitterlaw says:

      My parents were married for 49 years. My wife and I have been together since 1990 and married since 1995.

      You have never discussed your relationships because you don’t have any. You are a self-hating gay man who expresses disgust towards other gay men. You sneered at SDC’s relationship because you are alone.

    541. Bitterlaw says:

      Then who were you referring to? Quick. Make up a lie.

      You claim to be sensitive to mental health and then attack my brother’s family. Scum.

      Your brother is lucky he did not see the sad little clown you became.

    542. Tgca says:

      …and for the record, LisaB is a much better person than you’ll ever be. She actually did things with her life to help others while you whored as a lawyer simply to try and make money but did not have much success at it.

      She’s made more of a difference by society’s standards than a lawyer ever will. You want to take a poll on that one across any country?

    543. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzx. Just got my second raise in less than 11/2 years at my firm. I will be a lawyer for 30 years in 2023z

      Your crush on lisab would be sad if it was not so laughable. I give her credit for being a teacher but she moved every other year to follow her husband she abandoned student after student.

    544. Tgca says:

      …and you told us about your mother’s love affair with the bottle. If true, no marriage is worth playing 2nd fiddle to a bottle. Sounds like your parents stayed together for convenience and not love.

      …and I explained why 95% of gay men are not in long-term monogamous relationships. SDC tries to excuse it away with MONIGAMISH definitions which means open-relationships…and maybe you should ask SDC why he’s not married to the guy he’s been in a relationship with for years.

      I doubt you have a real marriage either. I could not imagine why any woman would want such a weak needy man who goes around telling people he doesn’t care if he lives or not. Doesn’t sound like you have much to live for at home. Again, what kind of man says those things? Evidently not one that is happy at home.

      Now tell us again how you’re a better husband than Trump please.

    545. Tgca says:

      So because you HATE change, per your own words, and are fearful to make opportunities for yourself, you think a woman following her husband in his career is somehow something to mock.

      How chauvinistic of you.

      Again, you show your stupidity. Most executives have moved around quite a bit in major companies to get experience and move up the ladder and their spouses followed them because that’s what supportive spouses do. I’ve seen this throughout my career in corporate America, men moving to various states or countries.

      You sound jealous because her husband appears successful and you’re still a staff lawyer after decades that can’t afford to support your family without your wife.

    546. Bitterlaw says:

      I am a better husband than Trump because I never cheated on my wife, let alone 2 wives.

      My dad spent 51 years with my mom. Coming from your shattered home, you can’t even recognize love. So all alcoholics are in marriages of convenience? My dad spent weeks in the hospital when my mom was dying.

    547. Tgca says:

      Ok. Thanks for letting me remind you of all the history you shared that only comes back to haunt you as a hypocrite and allows me to name a fool of you once again when you try to mock others.

      …and don’t forget to tell us how much better a husband you are then Trump because he’s been married 3 times as you are stuck in a marriage of convenience.

      Nite.

    548. Bitterlaw says:

      I have not been a Staff lawyer since 2010. All private firms since then. You obviously know nothing about lawyers. We do not generally move from state because then you have to learn an entirely new legal system and either take another bar exam or waive in. Your crush on a married straight woman who is a Christian-hating socialist is hilarious.

    549. Tgca says:

      559

      …and your dad spent 51 years playing 2nd fiddle to a bottle.

      Remember, you’re the one that brought up your mom’s dedication to the bottle.

      Yeah…you’re a better husband than Trump but you whine about caring less whether you live or not because your marriage is so good….riiiiight. That’s not what good marriages are based on, one spouse indifferent about living.

      As foul as my step father was, at least he and my mother spent over 40+ years together every day, never apart at all, before his death and they were dedicated to one another in a way I never understood and not a bottle so it appears they had a much better relationship than your parents.

    550. Tgca says:

      I was talking about executives, not practicing lawyers moron. Evidently something you never could achieve. Accountants with CPAs also move from state to state as well which requires different state licensing requirements to practice but it does not stop CFOs moving from company to company to climb the ladder.

      Again, LisaB was dedicated and supportive of her husband. You can’t understand that because you have no such similar support and claim to be ambivalent to living. Why? What kind of happily married man could care less if he lives or not anymore?

      Shall we remind you of the numerous times you reminded us why you don’t keep a gun in the house because you CLAIM you don’t trust yourself with it?

      So much for your happy marriage. As I said, sounds like a marriage of convenience based on your own words.

    551. Tgca says:

      Nite to the worlds greatest husband!

    552. Bitterlaw says:

      You are a sad little clown. I guess your mom was dedicated to your dad while he pimped you out for beer money. No wonder you have such warped views on marriage and family.

    553. jason says:

      I am a better husband than Trump because I never cheated on my wife, let alone 2 wives.”

      Zzzzzzz….

      Bitter has no idea what kind of husband Trump was or is.

      On the other hand Tgca has no idea of what kind of a lawyer Bitter is.

    554. jason says:

      I hate fights I am not part of.

    555. Tgca says:

      567

      I can remedy that.

      People that eat meat are vile, disgusting, IGORENT, selfish, inconsiderate, unattractive people.

    558. jason says:

      People that eat tofu are highly intelligent, kind, compassionate, loving, attractive people.”

      And then they wake up and reality strikes and they want a juicy rare steak and realize there is only tofu and they revert back to their sad empty lives.

    559. jason says:

      It finally rained last night.

      Lupita has something green to munch on.

    560. Phil says:

      Yeah, Bitter. We look at it as a cold front. Back to 101 later in the week, however.

    561. Bitterlaw says:

      My tomatoes and squash are doing well. Sweet potatoes, carrots, sting beans and cucumbers probably won’t make it. It does not impact me personally since I don’t eat any of the things we grow. My wife says they are good.

    562. Tgca says:

      574

      As Nancy would say:

      Let Lupita eat tofu!

    563. Tgca says:

      576

      I would offer to take the tomatoes, squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, and cucumbers from my good friend but I’m concerned they may get an extra lethal dosage of insecticide before delivery.

      I’ll pass on the string beans.

      Than I can make a wonderful veggie tofu stew to share with Jadon and Wes.

    564. Tgca says:

      578

      Than = then

      Argh!

    565. Bitterlaw says:

      Insecticide? I barely weed the garden. No time spent on insects. We also have lettuce (somewhere under the weeds). We also have way too much basil and mint. They grow faster than the weeds.

    566. jason says:

      t does not impact me personally since I don’t eat any of the things we grow.”

      Lucky bastard. I don’t mind the herbs, I can cook with them, but I am expected to like tomatoes, radishes, and assorted leafy produce since it is home grown and pesticide free. I was hopeful this buffet would attract some rabbits I could shoot but they seem to only be around when I don’t have a rifle in my hands.

      It irritates my wife when I say the pesticide laden st-ff tastes better.

    567. Tgca says:

      580

      I will take the basil too.

      No mint. Not good for GERD.

      No lettuce. I’m not a rabbit regardless of what Wes says because he’s jealous of my delicious tofu recipes.

      I thought the insecticide might be a special ingredient just for me. 🙂

    568. jason says:

      Sounds so delicious I will let wes have all of it.

      Ok. This may be getting serious now.

      Two deaths reported in Spain thought to be the first from monkeypox in Europe

      Both deaths were young men. Brazil and India just reported a death as well. It’s estimated that 75 deaths in Africa too. Over 20,000 cases worldwide and hospitalization ranges up to 8%.

      Quarantine of infected is recommended and can last up to 4 weeks.

      I also read over the weekend Spain was looking at asking gay men to refrain from sexual activity and extracurricular events to slow down the epidemic. Not sure about the details. But that’s like asking Jadon not to eat meat, pun intended.

      It appears the limited vaccines available are also going to western countries and African countries are being left out even though a more virulent strain is reported in Africa at this time.

      I think this is about to get very ugly medically, politically, and socially.

      Will gays be asked to provide proof of vaccination soon? It’s a fair request if the same guidelines as COVID are implemented.

      I also suspect gay stigmatizes will arise soon as well like we saw with the very early AIDS crisis.

      ATF agent gets arrested trying to confiscate guns in a private residence demanding access to the premises without a warrant and the woman refuses to open the door and calls police.

      Local police called thinking it may be a scam but he refused to comply with police orders so they could sort it out and they instituted standard procedure.

      He resists local police orders and is forced to the ground and is cuffed, tased and then starts whining he has a medical condition and can’t breathe…then tells them his wife is pregnant.

      He refused to get in police car as well and fought them all the way.

      Hopefully Pelosi ignores the threat:

      “The Washington Free Beacon reported: “If U.S. fighter jets escort Pelosi’s plane into Taiwan, it is invasion,” Hu Xijin, an analyst for the Chinese state-controlled Global Times propaganda outlet, said on Twitter. “The PLA has the right to forcibly dispel Pelosi’s plane and the U.S. fighter jets, including firing warning shots and making tactical movement of obstruction. If ineffective, then shoot them down.””

      “Unidentified UAV hits Russian Black Sea Navy HQ in Sevastopol, damaging the building and wounding at least 5 personnel, on Jul 31, according to statement issued by city’s Governor. Real extent of damages and number of losses/injures is yet unknown, but it is a well-known and recognized fact, that Russian official statements more often, than not, wildly differ from the reality. Russian Navy Day (last Sun of Jul) is widely celebrated annually throughout the country and specifically, in major Naval Bases, starting Sevastopol. Governor of Sevastopol cancelled all celebrations, including understand, most awaited by public Navy Parade and demonstration drills, residents are advised to stay at home”

    598. jason says:

      No US fighter jets are going to “escort” Pelosi’s plane, so that is a straw argument.

      In addition, while we know the Chinese media is not independent, this is not an official announcement by the government. Who Xijin is an “analyst for a propaganda outlet”.

      This is not even a threat, contrary to what Neville Allen thinks.

      612 – excellent.

      Of course, when the Russians shot down a civilian plane with a US member of Congress in it, the US did nothing.

    601. chicon says:

      613 – In that case, I think the plane should be escorted by four F-22’s armed to the hilt.

    602. jason says:

      If the Russians admit to 5 injured probably there were more casualties.

      Didn’t they say they only lost a couple sailors when the Moskva went down?

    603. jason says:

      613 – In that case, I think the plane should be escorted by four F-22’s armed to the hilt.”

      Nah, the whole point is this a diplomatic mission, let the Chinese try to escalate it.

    604. jason says:

      If the Chinese shoot down Pelosi’s plane, Biden will issue a stern rebuke and form a committee to issue recommendations on how the Chinese should pay for their crimes. He will also cancel Chinese New Year celebrations at the WH for the remainder of his term.

    605. chicon says:

      618 – I was assuming that a fighter escort was typical. Either way, a fighter escort is similar to the Navy sending a warship between Taiwan and China – if the planes don’t enter Chinese airspace, it is not a problem.

    606. Tgca says:

      I dare China to try and shoot down Pelosi’s plane.

Just try to imagine what I’m talking about happening to your home, to your country. Would you still be thinking about gas prices or electricity prices? –

      Is he a moron? COVID is nothing compared to what’s going on in Ukraine?

      Over 6 million worldwide COVID deaths compared to a few tens of thousands deaths in Ukraine. Is that really the comparison he wishes to make to the world as he begs for more money to save his corrupt gubbermint?

      I agree with Trump…as we all should.

      You hear that Robbie!

      *kneel*. All Hail Trump

      Seriously, I think Zelenskyy waited too long and now that Russia is profiting by selling its energy to Asian markets, and starving Europe, the West has lost a lot of its leverage to negotiate a solution. Russia is no longer as desperate as it appeared a few months ago after being surprised by the Ukrainian resistance.

      We should have pushed very hard in the beginning when Russia was at its weakest but now we have let them get the upper hand.

      Expect Germany, France, and others to start capitulating to Russia and throwing Ukraine under the bus soon as winter arrives and they face an energy crisis, continued economic downturn, and a restless population.

      While Zelenskyy was playing cute and thinking he consolidated the world against Russia and doing celebrity functions, the real truth is only the West was against Russia, and parts of that will fall apart shortly. About half the world is siding with Russia and not only providing him a market to sell his goods in Asia, Africa, and parts of South America but providing him leverage to build relationships that could work against American interests for decades to come.

      While Zelenskyy does photo shoots for fashion magazines geared to a small audience of elitist women, Russia is cutting deals to sell its energy and generate a constant revenue stream.

      My guess is Europeans will choose energy and getting back to normal over Ukraine and Ukraine will be forced to negotiate or find itself abandoned by the West because no one wants a long-term economic downturn over some country most never really cared about in the 1st place.

      Time will tell if Russia stumbles and things change but right now things are looking better for Russia than a few months ago and we missed an opportunity

      I am very disappointed to hear that Trump supports Ukraine surrendering to Putin’s brutal aggression.

    619. Tgca says:

      Trump believes it’s too late and now in the best interest of Ukraine to settle.

      The US and Europe’s weak and slow leadership blundered. They thought the sanctions would crush Russia and instead Russia is now profiting by finding new partners in other countries representing over half the worlds population.

      There’s little to no incentive for Pootin to negotiate now. Maybe that’ll change but not likely in the near term.

      Ukraine is the loser in this. Zelenskyy is partly to blame in this strategic blunder too.

      I guess this means if this goes on and Trump is elected again, he’d have to force Ukraine to negotiate or pull US support because no one wants an extended war that impacts other economies.

    620. Bitterlaw says:

      “Settle” = Surrender. The only person to blame for Russia’s invasion and destruction and death in Ukraine is Putin. If Ukraine had given up any territory before the invasion, more and more territory would have been demanded.

      I don’t think anyone disagrees here. The problem is that if it’s not a winnable war, it can’t go on forever, and you have to settle or tell Ukraine they’re on their own because very few have the appetite for a long-standing conflict in this environment funded by the West. It’s been done in numerous past wars as well, including WW2.

      Americans have already lost a lot of interest in Ukraine and Zelenskyy doesn’t help matters by doing photo shoots in palatial settings with left-winged fashion magazines and then telling folks COVID, with its 1 million + American deaths pales in comparison to Ukrainian suffering when it doesn’t look like him and his lady are suffering much at all in their digs

And yet, there are some here who insist that he is the best candidate to face Biden or whomever in 2024 (“WWC and Hispanics! RDS won’t be able to get them onboard the way Trump does!”). Wake up! He’s a freaking joke! Of course, I’d vote for him over any Dem in lockstep with the wokesters as a defense mechanism, but that’s purely to protect myself and my family from the far Left.

      Democrats had hoped for a Greitens-Lucas Kunce race in November in Mo. That would have actually been a seat they could have narrowly won. They may still get Kunce on their side of the ballot. Impressive 39 year old ex marine who would have run a tough campaign. Still might do that if he wins tomorrow, but in a state as red as Mo would have needed a weakened candidate like Greitens to actually win. Kunce is a progressive through and through btw but is a master at hiding it. The perfect Democratic red state candidate.

      By the way, how’s your MONOGAMISH relationship going in Caleefawnyuh? Hope you’re not spreading the Monkey Pox with your boy toy. Have you traveled to Utah to be with any Mormon boys lately? Be safe!

      With your refusal to share your HIV status after repeated requests after your Fascist COVID stance, I think it’s only fair we just assume, like 20% of other San Diego gay men, you’re also HIV+ and therefore at the highest risk for spreading the most severe Gay Monkey Pox cases. Open sores with HIV is extremely high risk to the general population with a 98% Monkey Pox transmission rate by gay men so high risk people should be isolating for at least a month per the CDC. Just saying.

      By the way, since you were a staunch supporter for COVID vax requirements and supported the FASCIST belief to deny other their rights, I assume you are now willingly prepared to show proof you’ve got the Gay Monkey Pox vax too or you are giving up your rights in order to protect the general public, riiiiiiight?

      I assume if you’re not vaxed, you’re not going out to eat and you’re following the CDC guidelines to self quarantine since you’re at such high risk with gay men accounting for 98% of the Monkey Pox.

      It’s funny, I actually predicted this situation when you and many in the gay community were pushing your FASCIST ideas against the unvaccinated early on.

      Do your co-workers even know the risk you may pose to them? Perhaps you should be honest with them and have that conversation because you could be risking their families and young children. Your employer should not be letting high risk people around other workers for the safety of all, riiiiiight?

      How does it feel now that the shoe is on the other foot Mr. Fascist?

    652. Tgca says:

      665

      Wes

      SDC was one of the Fascists Jadon and I challenged because he believed the unvaccinated had no rights to be in public settings risking others and should show vax cards to get food.

      Now that we have the Gay Monkey Pox, an equally easily transmittable disease, I’m curious to see if he feels the same way about gays not vaccinated having their rights significantly limited.

      I actually gave him examples at the time of HIV and other STDs spreading by gays, and so it comes to pass. Call me Nostradamus!

      It will be interesting to see if he agrees and complies.

      Of course, I’m mocking him and not seriously considering him an individual risk anymore than the average unvaccinated person was a risk for COVID.

    653. Tgca says:

      Excellent article by NY Post on hypocrisy of the Monkey Pox. Now compare that to how the MSM handled COVID.

      Gay advocates argue blaming Monkey Pox on gay behavior is not sound public health policy.

      That’s like saying blaming drunk drivers for drunk driving accidents is not sound public safety messaging.

      Ha! Ha! Ha!

      Look at this language coming out of Caleefawnyuh as it declares the Monkey Pox a state emergency.

      This is funny given how they said the complete opposite on COVID and PURPOSELY stigmatized the unvaccinated.

      SDC couldn’t have written these nonsense statements any better.

      “We’ll continue to work with the federal government to secure more vaccines, raise awareness about reducing risk, and stand with the LGBTQ community fighting stigmatization,” Newsom said in a statement announcing his declaration.

      Public health officials are clear: stigma is unacceptable and counterproductive in public health response,” Michelle Gibbons, executive director of the County Health Executives Association of California said in a statement. “The fact is that monkeypox is primarily spread by skin to skin contact and sharing objects like bedding or towels, without regard to sexual orientation or gender identity.”

      673. SDC

      Who is the nut job now?

      You supported FASCIST beliefs to deny the unvaccinated basic rights including getting food but now cower that it’s a POX on you…pun intended.

      I warned you how the FASCIST beliefs you and many in the gay community advocated could easily come back to haunt you all but you dismissed it and now you are the one in the hot seat and you don’t like it.

      It’s called Karma you F*CKING FASCIST HYPOCRITE!!!

    657. Tgca says:

      I will forever troll SDC on his HYPOCRISY until he admits he was wrong about COVID unvaccinated just like my ally and butt buddy Jadon trolls Amoral Scumbag for his ridiculous TDS.

      I don’t know how many here were unvaccinated but I do recall some having legitimate reservations about the vax due to health concerns but remember SDC believed you had no rights because the general public required protection from you putting them at risk.

      REMEMBER! The Greater Good! The Right Not to be Infected by the Unvaccinated!

      Now I say the same of SDC. Why should his rights not be limited because he and his gay pack are potentially putting all others at risk with the Gay Monkey Pox, a disease that is over 98% transmitted by gay men of all ages per the CDC, W.H.O. and every other reliable source.

      I see that SDC and Tgca already addressed what you said, but I am astounded by your lack of reading comprehension.

    661. Bitterlaw says:

      NYC – I read it. Trump said Ukraine should have given Putin Ukrainian territory before the war. Trump said he did not expect Putin would invade. Trump said Putin now wants all of Ukraine. Trump came across as weak and naive.

      Is there any free pass you won’t give to Trump?

    662. NYCmike says:

      “Ukraine, Trump said, “could have given up Crimea. They could have done something with NATO, ‘OK, we’re not gonna join NATO,’ and you’d have a country, because I believe Putin wanted to make a deal.””

      -Russia already had Crimea, so Trump clearly meant for Ukraine to give up THEIR CLAIM on Crimea, and not to join NATO, NOT to give up additional territory. That was where it stood from 2017-2021, when Trump was President.

      Pretty dang clear.

      Trump: “Now, Trump said, Putin will not be willing to settle for only part of the country, but wants the whole thing.”

      -Key word is “NOW”.

      Again, VERY CLEAR that Trump is speaking about the present situation. Trump does not come across as weak and naive. He comes across as giving an honest appraisal of the current situation along with the knowledge that the person in charge of United States foreign policy is an absolutely corrupt and weak individual.

    665. NYCmike says:

      “Is there any free pass you won’t give to Trump?”

      -As always, this is b*llsh*t.

      Trump never gets a free pass from me on his spending habits. They were terrible. That said, he was better than Biden.

      I take it as a GREAT compliment that I offend and am called a nut job from a FASCIST pig who wants to deny decent people their basic rights to get food because they’re not COVID vaxed and might potentially infect others yet who fails to similarly speak out against promiscuous selfish men that spread disease through our communities without any remorse of who and how many they infect, and whine about being stigmatized for such disease spreading because it’s prejudicy against their “NATURAL” lifestyle and then have the gall to blame the gubbermint for not having the scientific resources to contain the disease spread.

      It is truly an honor to be called out by your great HYPOCRISY so thank you very much you vile POS!

      Now go find some 3-way, 4-way, 5-way + in your MONOGAMISH type relationship that continues to keep HIV and other infectious diseases alive and thriving for some 40 + years resulting in 20% gay men infection and over 10,000 deaths annually.

      That really says a lot about the person you are and the scum you run with.

      – Right until the end, Trump wanted to endorse the sexual abuser. That tells you everything you need to know about MAGA daddy. He’s not the least bit interested in seeing the party field its best candidates. Yet, Jason fraud desperately wants Trump to be the nominee in 2024.

      I did not say SDC was wrong on everything else. We probably agree on like 90% here and if he weren’t a Gay FASCIST we could sit down and have a teachable moment over a nice tofu stew.

      I just can’t get past his belief that it’s ok to deny a group of people basic rights. I was EXTREMELY disappointed in him because I expected better of him being a member of the limp-wristed society that has endured great discrimination, and that’s why I am so harsh with him.

      I’ve seen this with other gays over the years. They rightfully protest the harsh treatment of gays historically but then are willing to treat others similarly.

      Seriously, to me, the belief that we should limit the basic rights of people that are not sick and not COVID vaccinated is like instituting slavery. It’s unconscionable. It’s the stuff of Nazi Germany in the 1930s. It’s indefensible and heart-breaking.

      The only thing more humiliating than losing to a candidate who had a massive stroke and hasn’t campaigned in more than two months is losing to a candidate who is dead.

      McCormick would have been portrayed as a “China agent”, I very much doubt he would do better than Oz.

      Yet, I also said he could win.

      I still think Oz will win, let’s see what the polls show closer to the election.

      Oz just came from a bruising primary, McCormick held out and didn’t concede soon enough, and Barnette has not endorsed Oz.

      The polling shows the R is not united around Oz, but that could still change.

      Oz is a good candidate. Has money. Good with media. Appeals to moderates. Compelling life story.

      – With the exception of years in which a Casey has appeared on the ballot, Republicans have done amazing well in Senate races in PA going back decades. I believe they’ve won each since the John Heinz days.

      In a wave year, this was a seat that should have been counted as close to out of reach for Democrats by now.

      Would McCormick have won? I think so, but it’s a hypothetical now because Hannity convinced MAGA daddy to endorse Oz.

      At least McCormick wasn’t a liberal right up until the moment he decided to run for Senate like Oz was.

      As for Masters, I think he’s too much a of weirdo to win against a known quantity like the astronaut. We’ll see, but Kelli Ward and Trump have turned the AZ GOP into the gong show.

    705. jason says:

      Oz won the primary by less than 1000 votes. McCormick voters that have not rallied around OZ might still draw the line at having Fetterman as Senator.

      Candidates who loaf tend to get in trouble and stay in trouble. Anyone remember Pat Roberts in 2014? He loafed in the primary and eked by Wolfe. He continued to loaf in a wave year and needed an intervention by the McConnell and the NRSC to rescue himself from losing in the general.

      Technically yes, but only snobbish Portuguese claim they’re different from Hispanics on a technicality since otherwise, their language, cultures, and DNA are very closely related more so than they are to any other ethnic group. Many of the Latinos in South America are of Portuguese heritage but only the snobs claim they’re not Latino. One of my two closest friends is Portuguese and holds dual citizenship with Portugal and the US and identifies more so as Hispanic culturally than white.

      NJ had its largest congregated population of Portuguese in the Iron Bound section of Newark. They traditionally had both first and surnames of Hispanic origin and could easily converse with other groups of Hispanic origin.

      Drawing a difference reminds me of the Cubans who are horrified when you mistake them for Puerto Ricans since the latter are low on the totem pole, barely above Mexicans. Technically, there is a difference but generally there is not.

      If necessary, we can have our Hispanic Expert EML weigh in on this cultural discussion because he knows how Hispanics think and feel better than anyone here.

      Second, has Masters ever explained why he quoted Hermann Gehring and other NAZIs in a positive way? Does Masters, a weirdo libertarian, even know what Gehring and the NAZIs did? Considering how stupid most libertarians are, it’s possible he doesn’t know what the NAZIs did.

      Since Jason fraud is such a big supporter of Masters, I can only assume he also believe the US hasn’t fought a just war since the Civil War and is cool with his favored candidates quoting Gehring positively.

      The one GOP CongressCritter suggests that after the midterms, the GOP will restore their discharge to honorable status. I hope that is a top priority.

      Just like with AIDS, anyone can get it but the outbreak in the US was primarily driven by reckless behavior of gays, intravenous drug users, and prostitutes.

      I don’t think Pelosi called anyone’s bluff.

      1st, that threat was not the official position of China. It was a remark by a supporter of CCP. It would be like Tucker Carlson calling for action and people claiming it was the official position of the US.

      Besides, the Dems waffled back and forth on it and we’re pretty much forcefully mocked into going that route. It was not like they took a strong stance from the start because they changed their position twice.

      You don’t think Xi.knows this? Unfortunately, the Chinese neither fear or respect this administration.

      Agreed! However, the point is whether we go to war for Ukraine or Taiwan. I think because of the significant economic interests of Taiwan, yes, we go to war to defend but not so for Ukraine which represents little direct interest to the US. Hence, the reason we have not militarily intervened in the Russian invasion.

      Ok. Time to go out and seek some delicious tofu dishes for lunch. So many restaurants around offering tofu meals. Can hardly find a place that offers beef anymore.

    748. chicon says:

      766 – I don’t think the US ‘going to war’ is on the table at this point for either. We can analyze whether either is worth “going to war’ over when events warrant, imo.

    750. Gordon Allen says:

      I’ve finally figured out that Jason has lockjaw of the mind because he plainly doesn’t read what posters( me) actually write, or is totally uninterested in being honest.
      Chicon, that makes an honest debate impossible if every comment is twisted 180 degrees by one or two posters.
      The issue is of Tawainese sovereignty, and it’s strategic placement along the Pacific Sea Lanes. The issue of Ukrainian sovereignty was settled militarily months ago in it’s favor. The issue now in the real world is a very narrow one of the border line of Russian control in the two eastern provinces.
      That is in no way( in my opinion) commensurate with the stakes in China v Taiwan. We should not equivocate anymore, and start sending weapons now, and flatly say a military assault on Taiwan will bring a military response from the US.
      I don’t think, also practically, that the US can continue to be heavily involved in Ukraine, Taiwan, and possibly Iran( going full nuclear capable)simultaneously; we are not strong enough/
      As between the three Ukraine is third at this point in time in my opinion in terms of US National Interests.
      Others can agree. But that absurd comment about Pelosi is just the icing on the cake.
      territory in Donets and Luhansk

    751. Gordon Allen says:

      Others can DISAGREE.Auto correct again

    752. jason says:

      But, does there really need to be a debate about which is more important? Can’t they both be important to US national interest?”

      Exactly. They are both important, and you can’t “choose” one over the other.

      It is in the vital US interest that Russia does not be allowed territorial (and political and economic) expansion and/or to recreate Soviet Union or a “Greater Russia”.

      Neville Allen keeps bleating about Donets and Luhansk even though he knows he is lying about Putin’s true intention, and he knows the Russians have invaded much more than Donets and Luhansk and have attacked all of Ukraine’s populated areas.

      He knows it is not about “control of two Eastern provinces, that is pure Putin propaganda and nobody except a little sniveling Putin lapdog believes the Russians have started this war to control Donets and Luhansk.

    753. chicon says:

      The constant extreme exaggeration of the positions of other posters is certainly a detriment to posting here for me (and others, given the dwindling number of regular posters). I generally read, especially to get news updates that might not make the larger news outlets. But I don’t post here as much as I would because of the above.

    754. jason says:

      or is totally uninterested in being honest.”

      Good.

      So maybe Neville Allen can take his head out of Putin’s ass long enough to admit this war is not about Luhansk and Donets.

      The Russians don’t have 15000 dead, 40000 wounded and losses of 5000 pieces of heavy equipment and severe consequences for their economy to “control” 2 provinces they were mostly in “control anyway.

      So when Neville Allen stops lying about that we can talk about “honesty”.

      Well its time for me to bid everyone here farewell. I have been thinking about this for some time now, as I like to see the glass half full and believe that our best days are still ahead of us, and that we will fix what needs to be fix, right the ship and continue the journey. Some actually posted today that they knew we would get sold out on Obamacare at the Supreme Court, how could they know that? Unknown.
      But mostly I tired of the nonsense of a couple of posters. Now most folks here are great. But a couple can not help themselves with their smarmy and caustic comments.
      Now my brain says, understand they live in a cesspool where crime is rampant and race violence seems to be spiraling out of control. It pervades everything, hell their QB for their beloved football team is a damn convicted felon who did time in the joint. If you had your job handed to an affirmative action candidate or you were stuck in a dead end job defending lawsuits against your employer for contract entered into and wont pay on just cuz the time delay is worth money, that would grind on ya for sure.
      All that is true, and they have my pity. But the truth is I dont want to listen to their ad hom attacks. They are both philly @ssholes, and is it any wonder that such a place populated with such @ssholes could start pelting Santa Claus with snowballs. Its probably a miracle Santa got out alive.
      So I am therefore bidding all of you a fond farewell. I dont intend to return. Enjoy the bitter rhythmic chants of “No Deal” or whatever it will be next time. Perhaps aluminum bats is the correct answer to some as yet unasked trivia question. Perhaps I will run into some of the rest of you somewhere else on the internet. I wont be that hard to find I use my real name.
      Lets kick enough Democrats to the curb to make some real fundamental change in this great country. I am with you in spirit on that task. Thanks for the chance to post here Dave. Bye.

      If posters wanted smarmy, self-indulgent pedanticism, then Maxwell’s farewell rant is the ideal representation of what they’re looking for.

    787. Wes says:

      To be fair, Jason, CCCP did blame Bitter personally for Trump’s impending victory during his Canadian meltdown.

      Of course why a Canadian was obsessed with US politics rather than dealing with things in his own country I have no freaking idea.

      Wes, I always took Cory’s ‘Canadian’ claim as a front.

      Wes – Yes. Maxwell set the standard with a perfect 10. Nobody has come close. MD only had a 5 or 6. Tgca scored no higher than a 4 and this was invalidated when he returned less than 12 hours later. Lisab disappeared without an Exit Rant.

    793. Wes says:

      Schumer is up by only 56-35 in NY. That’s the closest any polling for him has been since he ousted D’Amato by 55-44 in 1998.

      Of course any Republican has only a slightly better chance of beating Schumer than Corey has of having a three-way with Haley Steinfeld and Elsa Benitez, but maybe the Empire State’s rat-faced, beady-eyed senior Senator may finally have to work to hold onto his seat by double digits.

      “I can’t seem to smoke enough weed to make this election go away”

      I suppose in a way, this is a condensed version of the Maxwell farewell post.

    799. DW says:

      Some of you may recall that I completed a lengthy 2016 election night coverage chronology–highlighting key moments and interesting comments hour by hour, minute by minute, across all the major networks.

      I provided a summary of each hour, using alliteration:

      7:00-8:00: Hour of Coronation

      This opening hour was filled with jazzed coverage of Clinton breaking the glass ceiling, what went wrong with Trump who is already lashing out at his defeat, and the media reflecting on what the night means and where the country and the parties go from here. Early concerns about tight vote totals in Florida gave way to euphoric media coverage near the end of the 7 o’clock hour when Clinton retook the lead in Florida—a lead that quickly grew as 8 pm approached.

      8:00-9:00: Hour of Confidence

      This second hour began with Clinton well ahead in FL, NC and OH. Concerns about VA were rightly set aside due to northern VA not reporting. This confidence launched the media into congratulatory remarks about Clinton’s robust ground game, as well as comments about highly placed Republicans who are gravely concerned. Almost unnoticed by many of the networks was the fact that by 8:30 Trump had taken a modest lead in FL. Those who did notice, waved it off expecting southeast FL to come through for Clinton. However, as the hour of confidence marched on, some started to see some warning signs as 9:00 approached.

      9:00-10:00: Hour of Concern

      The hour did not get off to a good start for Clinton. She was declared winner of NY immediately, but that was all. Shockingly, MN and WI were deemed too close to call by all the networks. Interestingly, some of the networks seemed unprepared to analyze WI and therefore completely avoided the state. Right after the top of the hour Trump took the lead in OH and NC, also shocking the media. This led media analysts to openly affirm that Trump was still in play and the election is not yet over. This concern only strengthened as the hour moved along and Trump’s lead grew in FL, NC and OH. This hour the media shifted the narrative as Trump’s path grew wider, and Clinton’s narrower.

      10:00-11:00: Hour of Consternation

      Although most networks called Clinton the winner in CO, NM and VA during this hour, these results did not give any relief from the consternation over the numbers from NC, FL, MI, and WI. PA would only become a concern later when Trump closed the gap. The top of the hour got off to a good start for Clinton as she took the lead in VA. The momentum gained from VA was very short lived–by 10:30 the networks called OH for Trump and by the end of the hour, most were in full-blown panic.

      11:00-12:00: Hour of Catastrophe

      The media and Clinton supporters sat in stunned disbelief during this hour as they took catastrophe after catastrophe as the battleground states dropped into the Trump column. NC was called for Trump, then FL, UT, IA, and then the Fox News bombshell call of WI. It was over. Everyone knew it. Many knew in previous hours it was over, but now crying supporters were leaving the Javits Center. Some of the traditional broadcast networks were able to avoid being on the air from 11:00-11:30 due to local coverage.

      12:00-1:00: Hour of Confusion

      Nothing much happened during this hour. Some networks called NV for Clinton, but mostly this hour was networks analyzing what went wrong for Clinton. Reports from the Javits Center suggested that the supporters there were confused because the Clinton campaign leadership went dark and no longer provided updates. Trump took the lead in PA just after 12:00 a.m., and that lead grew throughout the hour, making all the more certain it was over but nobody knew what the Clinton campaign was thinking or doing. Adding to the confusion was the promise by some news anchors that they would have a declared winner within the hour, a promise that never happened.

      1:00-2:00: Hour of Complaining

      The media had time on its hands during this hour. Nothing was being called, but Trump’s leads were holding. During this hour the coverage involved bitter complainers in the media lashing out at voters, each other, James Comey, Russia, or even Clinton’s lack of appeal or strategy. Some media analysts pushed hard the idea that the remaining states could not be called due to the possibility of absentee ballots. However, both the NY Times and the Associated Press called PA for Trump during this hour, at 1:46, but it would take another hour for others to call it.

      2:00-3:00: Hour of Concession

      The top of the hour started the end of the election with John Podesta’s strange speech, then the news that Trump was going to the Hilton to speak, followed by Clinton’s concession call and Trump’s victory speech. Interestingly, of the major networks only Fox News declared Trump the winner prior to the victorious candidates taking the stage to speak.

      3:00-4:00: Hour of Cleanup

      The final hour of coverage began during Trump’s victory speech, followed by further media coverage on most networks where hosts and analysts attempted to take it all in and process the outcome of the election.

      Exactly.

      Trade and foreign policy, especially NATO, were Trump’s weakest areas and I have disagreed with him from day 1.

      I am not surprised he is wrong about Ukraine.

      -Trump’s weakest areas being trade and foreign policy…….compared to whom?

      When Trump was President, Ukraine had Russia and Putin as obedient neighbors, now Ukraine is being bombarded on a daily basis by Russia, and the current occupant of the White House is useless to stop that……..hmmmmmm……..but that was a “weak point” of Trump’s.

      When Trump was President, NATO countries were being asked to spend more on their defense budgets……..NOW they are trying to figure out how to heat their citizens homes this winter if Russia decides to have more “maintenance” issues……..but that was a “weak point” of Trump’s.

      When Trump was President (pre-Wuhan), global trade was at an all-time high, with economies in most countries (but not in Russia!!) doing better than they ever had done before……but that was a “weak point” of Trump’s.

      Trump is an isolationist and protectionist who hates free trade and believes in stupid trade wars and tariffs and whose stupid and reckless campaign against NATO weakened the alliance.

      Trump does believe in “stupid trade wars and tariffs”, although I also believe once the United States got more favorable terms he would find them unnecessary, which proves that he only uses them as a means of negotiating, for good or bad.

      In the past, I have counseled 2 women to follow through with their pregnancies. One didn’t, one did. The one who didn’t ended up having many issues trying to give birth, although she finally did succeed like 15 years later, GOD bless her.

      That said, I don’t think abortion should be banned, nor criminalized. I believe that each woman should have to get an ultrasound first, and be made aware of all the programs available to help her, and also the father should either have a say, or be made to pay. Looking at the Mississippi law, giving 15 weeks to make that decision, seems very reasonable.

      22 weeks for ABORTION is not reasonable. It’s MURDER!

      25% to 50% of babies born at 22 weeks survive with proper medical care.

      I have detailed in the past the development of the fetus at various weeks. By 22 weeks the baby is significantly developed because development does not happen evenly. The fetus develops quickly the 1st 20 weeks and then slows down before birth.

      Women having ABORTIONS at 20+ weeks are murderers. It’s that simple!

      It appears that last night’s GOP primary votes in all States were massive and far exceeded the Dem. vote.
      The Democrats on predictit.com are going wild because of the Kansas abortion vote. There is no doubt that many Republicans were opposed especially in Johnson County. Yet, the GOP primary vote in the Johnson County Congressional District, KS-3, was 125,000 votes. The District is currently held by a Democrat, Sharice Davids, who has rarely been in Washington since COVID started.

    873. Bitterlaw says:

      Overturning Roe and Casey returned the abortion issue to the states. The states are now dealing with it. As long as I am not forced to pay for abortions through taxes, abortion will remain outside my top 25 issues.

      Unfortunately, the abortion issue may well propel Shapiro to an easy victory over Mastriano. The no exceptions for any reasons policy of Mastriano is too extreme for many voters. Shapiro is running non-stop ads saying Mastriano will kill women and overturn any election he feels like.

The Red Sox players are leaving the field dejected as the crowd at Shea stadium cheers wildly. NBC’s Bob Costas was in the Red Sox club house ready to start the celebration, and I am being told he has left the club house along with the baseball commissioner.

      – This is the best political midterm environment for Republicans since 1994 and possibly since 1946. Nominating candidates with a good track record and a willingness to make Biden the focus would have produced huge gains. Instead, many of the high profile 2022 primaries have produced candidates who are just plain bad or focused on conspiracies.

      What’s happened so far in many primaries reminds me of how Democrats acted in the 1970’s and 1980’s. For many, the motto was “NDC: November doesn’t count”. In other words, the liberal base wanted to show it ran the party and was willing to blow the general election to make that point clear. That seems to be what voters are doing now.

      Republicans are going to win the House, but probably not by the margins hoped for earlier in the year. As for the Senate? It’s iffy. Right now, a 50-50 split once again may be the best the party can hope to achieve. Why? Poor candidate selection and an odd desire to talk about issues other than Biden and his policy failures.

      You can translate Kraushaar’s whining into one sentence:

      “If the GOP doesn’t nominate candidates I like, I will trash them and hope the Democrats win”.

      or

      “IF the GOP candidates are not Never Trumpers, then I will support the Democrats”

      F–k him. Candidates with “a good track record”? Who the heck determines that?

      Last night’s results confirmed two things:

      1) The MAGA movement is alive and well.

      2) The Never Trumpers prefer Democrats to Republicans who are not Never Trumpers. They want Rs to lose so they can say “well, OUR candidates would have won”.

      We will all live with the consequences.

    911. Tina says:

      Hot line squish’s comment about an “odd desire to talk about issues other than Biden” is wrong.

      He must not be watching the candidates that won their contests at all.

      They talk about Biden and his policies 24/7.

    912. chicon says:

      Robbie’s ilk are today’s fringe deadenders. If we followed their choices, the Republicans would win about 150 House seats. The vast majority of Republican voters have rejected the country club wing because they turned out to be absolute frauds.

    913. chicon says:

      “The Never Trumpers prefer Democrats to Republicans who are not Never Trumpers. They want Rs to lose so they can say “well, OUR candidates would have won”.”

      In other words, they want to SEND A MESSAGE. It is funny to read that kind of stuff from Robbie, after he spent years making fun of social conservatives because they wanted to SEND A MESSAGE to country club Republicans. Now he and his ilk are on the outside looking in, and think it is just fine to SEND A MESSAGE.

    914. jason says:

      The R elites only have one card left to play.

      Support us or we will vote for the Democrats.

      I don’t think it is a persuasive argument.

      And they can’t all get jobs at CNN and MSNBC.

      Cindy McCain had already said she was going to be supporting Katie Hobbs for governor even before last night’s results.

      There you are. Your establishment “Republicans” in a nutshell. Worthless.

      – I’m not sure there was ever a “McCain machine” in Arizona. He was always an iconoclast. Whatever clout he had came mostly from his personality. When compared to the House members who served during his Senate career, he was an outlier and never seemed to have too much sway with the state party.

      Regardless, let’s be clear about Kari Lake. She’s a fake, a fraud, and a phony. She was a two-time Obama voter and donor. She was also a Clinton 2016 voter who advocated for voting by cell phone in 2016. She’s used the 2020 election as cover to pull the wool over people’s eyes.

      Before 2016, Lake would have been a nonstarter with the regulars in this forum. You never would’ve voted for her. But now you’re mad some members of the party won’t vote for someone who is a Democrat play-acting as Trump populist. My how things have changed.

      Lake is, sadly, going to be the nominee, but I believe the AZ party couldn’t have found anyone better to represent their descent into chaos and irrelevance. A state party headed by Chemtrail Kelli couldn’t have found a better representative than a lifelong liberal masquerading an election denier.

      Arizona Republicans have decided to do themselves what Colorado and Virginia did. How long before Tom Tancredo and Corey Stewart head to Arizona to revive their scummy political careers?

    917. jason says:

      Is Kari Lake a deadender?

      – Yes.

      She’s a two-time Obama voter and donor.

      She’s a Cliton 2016 voter who took part in a January 2017 “Trump’s not my president” rally.

      She also advocated for voting by cell phone in 2016.

    919. Phil says:

      My revised prediction for the midterms.

      Republicans take the House gaining 16 seats. That’s good because Republicans are on track to lose 2-3 seats in the Senate. Candidate selection is part of the problem but more importantly, some things are suddenly breaking Joe’s way.

      Don’t look now but oil continues to fall. Quietly down to $90 a barrel today. Gas futures down to $2.90 a gallon. That’s a 20% drop in the last three wks. Prices at the pump are down about a dollar over the last month. Look for that all to be reflected in what will be surprisingly positive inflation reports over the next two months.

      I hate Biden but he’s had a pretty good week.

      Manchin on board and his BBB legislation will be law before the August recess. Who saw that one coming?

      Biden’s job approval will be up in the next round of polls released in the next few weeks. Already reflected in the Rasmussen daily tracking.

      Just saying…..

      Heh, I bet she is more genuine than Amoral Scumbag, who really is a fake, a fraud and a phony.

    921. jason says:

      I think AMoral Scumbag’s argument is that you should vote for people who are far left Democrats NOW because the R supposedly used to be a Democrat?

They were perfectly fine knifing Trump in the 2020 election. Glad the governor is leaving.

      – I have to be honest. It gives so much pleasure Trumpcon, I mean Chicon, feels the need to stalk my comments.

      What makes me laugh, though, is he thinks my choices would have led to 150 House seats. Strange because it was Donnie Trump who led the party to a massive House defeat in 2018. Not me.

      Also, the candidates I supported in the primaries in 2010, 2012, and 2014 all won. I was in this forum, especially in 2014, fighting against Bevin, Wolfe, Brannon, McDaniel, and the other clowns. Were the people I mentioned country club Republican candidates?

      “We didn’t get to pick the candidates”

      – No. Trump mostly picked the Senate candidates in contested races because his endorsement in crowded primaries was enough to get his choice across the finish line first with about 35%.

      Vance, Walker, Oz, and Masters are all, to varying degrees, mediocre candidates and/or loafers. Oz has the special advantage of being both since he took a three-week vacation to Ireland in the middle of a Senate race.

      – Even I’m not this bleak. I would still bet on about a 20-25 House seat gain, but probably no better than a one seat gain in the Senate and even that’s probably a stretch. A 50-50 split seems likely if Laxalt wins in NV.

    932. Phil says:

      Doesn’t matter about Gibbs. The district was redistricted D+9. A Republican wasn’t going to win that seat in November anyway. GIbbs took out a worthless Liz ally before the Democrats did. Didn’t need Meijer in the House Republican caucus vying to become the next CNN favorite Republican constantly undermining conservatives. Good riddance to Meijer….and Liz…and Kinzinger…and Rice.

      – I would have preferred to see him win over a conspiratorial nut, but the individual House races don’t move the needle for me.

      Gibbs will probably lose, claim the race was stolen, and then become a perennial candidate in a seat that will shift away from Republicans over the next decade.

    934. Phil says:

      Laxalt has an excellent chance. Good candidate running against a potted plant. Too bad Nevada pushed through their legalization of ballot harvesting and mail out of ballots to all voters law in 2020. He’ll have to beat the margin of fraud.

      I mean the McCains should have been happy Trump attacked McCain’s prisoner of war status in 2015 and then spent an entire week in March 2019 attacking McCain even though he’d been dead for almost a year.

      – An outlier in this forum? Yes. But that speaks more to how many in this forum simply want to be on the side they think is currently “winning”. Ideological consistency flew the coop here in 2016.

      An outlier in the party? I don’t think so. The populist base of the party is about 35% to 40%. That’s what MAGA daddy’s crappy candidates usually get in a crowded field. The rest is with Donnie sometimes and not with him other times.

      Flake also voted for Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, multiple attempts to repeal Obamacare, and the skinny repeal of Obamacare in 2017.

      When the NYT compared by their ideological scores, Flake was the fourth most conservative Republican. Only Lee, Paul, and Cruz were more conservative.

      https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/07/25/us/politics/senate-votes-repeal-obamacare.html

      Flake just didn’t kowtow to MAGA daddy the way some wanted him to do.

      Is it Lindsey Graham? The guy who is Trump’s best friend in the Senate and is encouraging him to announce for the presidency before the midterm elections?

      I know it can’t be Romney because I was assured day after day in 2012 that he was a conservative. In fact, he ran as “severely conservative” and this forum loved it.

      The “country club Republican” talking point is just that. A talking point. Populism exists because angry people always believe someone is out to screw them over. Right now, the angry base has decided Trump didn’t succeed because a group that hasn’t existed as a force in two decades diabolically thwarted MAGA daddy at every turn.

      It’s the other way around. Regular Republicans – not the elitists who think they know better – have been lied to for a LONG time. The candidates whisper sweet nothings in our ears at election time and then go do the opposite once in office. Trump is the first candidate who did not do that, and has earned the loyalty of his voters. After decades of Republican candidates weaseling out of their promises, one guy fought like a beast to LIVE UP to his promises.

      Robbie is a Washington insider type who has forgotten that the government works FOR the people, rather than the people working for the government.

      He knows this, and that’s why he is so angry all the time; he knows the old days are gone.

      – No. I’m not mourning the loss of Jeff Flake. He would have been better than Kirsten Sinema, though. Or do you now believe she, a liberal who votes for Biden’s judicial appointees and is the vote that gives Democrats control of the chamber, is better than Flake?

      poor Robbie….still doesn’t get it…. That’s sweet that you are worried about Trump’s feelings and intentions.

      Meanwhile, in the real world….what I said above still stands; Trump fought like a beast to accomplish what he said he would accomplish. Your ilk never came close; and yet you still drool on them, hoping for a little morsel…

      Poor Robbie….

      BUT, and this is the important part, Trump proved himself to be a very capable President, especially when compared to the piece of crap currently in office, and in fact was a better President than Dubya and his daddy, who for all I know, are both pieces of crap as well.

      – Trump fought like Hell to ingratiate himself and nothing more. It was all about stroking his own ego. That’s why he desperately tried to overturn an election he lost. His ego couldn’t handle the fact he lost to an invalid who spent the entire campaign in his basement.

      Trump never cared one iota about you, your concerns, or your worries. But Trump also knew that all he had to do was play-act concern about certain things and people like you would coo like a baby.

      After seeing what happened in KS let me tell you there is a very good chance that Dems will get a constitutional amendment for the right to abortion added to the FL constitution. The ease at which the FL constitution can be amended is ridiculous. And the people of FL pretty much vote for all amendments. When I was in college in FL they passed an amendment specifically mandating that pigs could not be tethered in cages in the state of FL. If the GOP pushes beyond the 15 week ban which I think may be the purple state limit they can get away with electorally. The blowback will be a 20-24 week abortion ame dment that will likely pass.

      Hawley made a fool of himself voting against Sweden and Finland joining NATO:

      “If any senator is looking for a defensible excuse to vote no, I wish them good luck,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said. “This is a slam dunk for national security that deserves unanimous bipartisan support.”

      Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who along with Hawley is widely believed to be considering a future presidential run, went even further by obliquely referencing Hawley’s support for admitting North Macedonia to NATO in 2019.

      “It would be strange indeed for any senator who voted to allow Montenegro or North Macedonia into NATO to turn around and deny membership to Finland and Sweden,” Cotton said. “I would love to hear the defense of such a curious vote.

    1002. NYCmike says:

      “– It was mnw’s guy Josh Hawley was the one who voted against adding Finland and Sweden to NATO.”

      -In just about EVERY vote that I have seen in my lifetime out of Congress with more than an 85% or so in agreement, at least the same % of the time their were bad unintended consequences.

      Excuse me, but I would take the status quo we had in Jan 2021, where Finland and Sweden were not in NATO, and Russia was confined to its border.

      No issue with Hawley voting against that, even if just to get some free press.

      Congress, along with Robbie’s favorite President Biden, should have done something about Russia BEFORE they invaded, not these barely-more-than-symbolic votes after the fact.

      1st, of all, I’m not ready to give up that hard earned title to Hawley.

      2nd, Americans don’t care about Sweden and Finland joining NATO at this time given all else going on.

      Prioritize!

      We have massive inflation and now we’re looking at a serious economic downturn.

      We are also looking at potentially another pandemic that is more easily spread.

      The Gay Monkey Pox, if not contained can spread very quickly as schools and colleges open in a couple of weeks.

      The CDC says you can get the Gay Monkey Pix from touch and air from close interactions in crowded confined spaces, like bars, classrooms, school buses, etc.

      You can pick it up from the gym, public toilets, transportation, clothing, and about any surface a symptomatic person touches.

      We will know within a month if we were able to quell this Gay disease before it spread out of control.

      In south FL, the health department has targeted gay establishments to spread the news and offer vaccinations to gay men.

      I have a friend who works in a gay establishment and the health department reached out to them to offer vaccinations.

      So pardon us if we don’t think Sweden and Finland joining NATO is a priority given all else at the moment.

    1010. NYCmike says:

      It took Finland and Sweden until 2022 to realize that Russia/Putin is bad news?

      I have no issue with them becoming part of NATO, hopefully they won’t be deadbeats when it comes to providing for the common defense, and hopefully they won’t laugh, like Germany did, the next time a President Trump warns them they don’t want to be beholden to Russia for their energy needs.

      I also have ZERO issue with 1 Senator voting NAY, and I give no credit to the 90+ who voted Yay. It was a politically expedient vote, and it allowed the Dems to look tough, despite every single policy currently in affect being detrimental to our nation and the democratically-elected countries in the western-led world.

    1011. NYCmike says:

      “1029. Yes, but Bitter you do understand that it was crucial North Macedonia be part of NATO, but not Sweden and Finland?”

      -If it was so “crucial”, why the heck did it take until now to happen?

      North Macedonia just gained independence in the last 20-30 years, it would make sense for them to seek to align themselves with neighbors, seeing as they are surrounded on all sides. Both Sweden and Finland have well-developed institutions, and a history of self-preservation.

      Again, I’m fine that they will become members. They better make sure to listen the next time a U.S. President tells Europe to beware dealing exclusively with Russia for certain needs.

      In less than a week, the Gay Monkey Pox has increased over 80% to nearly 7,000 cases in the US. If this trend continues steadily, in a other week or so, we could be looking at 20,000 to 25,000 US cases because many may just be finding out they have it.

      NY and CA are exploding with cases. NY, CA, and IL are the top 3 states with the disease and make up nearly 50% of all US cases. Next 3 in order are TX, FL, and GA making up about 23% of the cases.

      All the high case areas are centered around metro areas with large limp-wristed populations. Expect it to increase the next week. After that, we will see if early intervention helped stem the spread from hitting the non-gay male population. If that happens, then expect a much larger increase, especially as school and college start their fall sessions.

      @JoshKraushaar
      “The preponderance of Republican Senate candidates without formal elected experience in 2022 is striking compared to the slate of candidates the party nominated in 2014, the last time Republicans flipped the Senate from blue to red.”

      “Would our view of the Senate picture be different and more favorable to Republicans if the party had a more experienced slate of candidates? Yes.”

      – Walker, Oz, and Masters may well have the same effect on Republican chances to win the Senate that COD, Buck, and Angle did in 2010. Each may be marginally better than those three, but the net effect is the same. An own goal.

      I put a lot of the blame on two people, Rick Scott and Mitch McConnell. First, Rick Scott has proven to be awful at his job as NRSC chair. He took the job simply to burnish his chances to run for president in 2024. He also struck out on Sununu, Ayotte, Ducey, Hogan, and the governor of Vermont. Whatever miniscule chances he had of being a future nominee have come and gone, thankfully.

      Mitch McConnell, despite a decade of evidence the Republican base can’t be counted on to make the wise picks, decided to stay out of all but two primaries. His super pac, run by Steven Law, has raised close to $300 million, but he spent only about $8 million in the primaries. About $1.5 against Mo Brooks and $6.5 against Greitens. Both lost, by the way.

      It’s not like McConnell didn’t have evidence spending in primaries to block bad candidates wouldn’t work. In 2014, his super pac spent vigorously in the primaries. He saved the party from Greg Brannon, Chris McDaniel, Milton Wolfe, and his own opponent Matt Bevin. Yet, he sat on his hands this time and now a sure thing looks like it may have evaporated.

      If Democrats hold onto control of the Senate, McConnell should get a lot of the blame as each Biden judge gets confirmed.

    1043. DW says:

      Give a man a little communism and he is drawn away by it, give a man a LOT of communism and he comes rushing back to freedom and representative government.

      But keep in mind this is EXACTLY what I have been predicting will happen here in the USA. Biden’s cronies are working hard to criminalize EVERYONE, even if you want to obey the law, you will not be able to do so because its so confusing and complex. Then once everyone is a technical criminal, the government can pick and choose who they will jail and punish. Classic Soviet tactics coming to a theater near YOU.

      Masters is a Stanford Law school graduate and a highly successful venture capitalist and author.
      He was CEO for Thiel Capital, just the kind of business oriented person you would want in the Senate.

      Walker to COD?

      Walker has a compelling and admirable life story, comparing him to COD is just another of Amoral Scumbag troll despicable statements.

      Amoral Scumbag is here shilling for Fetterman and Warnock, two socialist scumbags while comparing the R candidates to COD.

      At the same time, the number of job openings in the country fell to its lowest number since September 2021. The latest survey shows openings fell to about 10.7 million through the last day of June, a decline of 605,000 or 5.4%.’

      Griner will garner little sympathy amongst most Americans after her less than ideal support for America in the past. Her sentence is extremely harsh by US standards but she was not convicted or sentenced under US laws.

      The arrogance to go to a foreign country, not known for its fair justice system, and break their laws is on her. Just like the guy in North Korea who ultimately died for his antics.

      You MUST assume great care when you are visiting countries run by dictators or with harsh justice systems. Americans will always be potential targets.

      I feel bad she has to learn such a hard lesson but it is of her own making.

      If Alex Jones was a left winger and had made similar claims all the people happy to do away with his 1st amendment rights would be climbing all over themselves to defend him.

      This decision by a woke jury in Austin is disgusting and outrageous.

      Are Alex Jones’ supporters saying that there should never be any defamation suit against anybody for any reason OR it is not appropriate in this case?

      *I have no knowledge that he does that.

    1133. Tgca says:

      1160

      No! No matter how repulsive, unless it meets certain legal standards of defamation, we should not be allowed these ABSURD lawsuits because it sets a bad precedent that could overflow the legal system.

      This is a decision based on FEELINGS and not the law.

      The families got their FEELINGS hurt he said something repulsive and obnoxious but protected under the Constitution.

      The left-wingers in Austin FEEL he should be taught a lesson because he’s a right-winger.

      The left-wingers FEEL he should pay a price to shut down anyone associated with politics other than their own.

      None of this has anything to do with prudent legal doctrine.

      1161

      How does that damage my reputation or harm me? Everyone knows you’ll say anything about me because you’re jealous.

      Damage is the basis for defamation suits to be successful.

      Just saying something absurdly ridiculous that all know is not true is not a basis for a defamation suit.

      You need to prove it caused harm. Where is the harm?

      It’s sad but if anything, these parent’s reputation got more goodwill and sympathy from the event and his ludicrous remarks than harm.

      The only thing I see is it insulted them and hurt their feelings. That is a valid issue to be angry over but it’s not a valid issue to award money.

      The purpose of the award is to stifle free speech…specifically of conservatives…and that is offensive to 200 years of legal doctrine.

      Anyone supporting this award is supporting whittling down free speech and weakening the US Constitution.

      Alex Jones is right wing? If he is your definition of a conservative, you have no understanding of conservatism.

      By the way, the EXPERT should know that certain statements are per se defamatory. If I accuse you of having an STD (“loathsome disease”), the case then switches to whether there were damages to reputation.

      I did not watch the trial and neither did anybody else at HHR so there was likely evidence of harm to reputation.

      Bitter – the issue I have with the Jones outcome (for the record, I don’t believe I’ve ever heard him speak and I think he is cracked) is damages. How can anything that guy ever says actually impact a person’s reputation in the community? Don’t the plaintiffs need to show a loss in order to cash in?

    1142. Bitterlaw says:

      There was a poster who actually believed Infowars. Maybe it was Eph.

      Alex Jones used to be widely regarded as a crazy loon at HHR.

      1171 – who said he’s not? Or is this another example of lying and exaggerating the position of others?

    1144. Bitterlaw says:

      Chi – The Plaintiffs had to put on some evidence to guide the jury on damages. If they did not, it is an appealable issue. However, it is subjective.

      It is similar in concept to “pain and suffering” in an accident case. It varies from case to case. In Pennsylvania, the test to reduce the amount of an award is whether it “shocks the conscience.” Which is also subjective.

      Bitter, your “1st Amendment status” line is perplexing. This is not a 1st Amendment issue, as it is not about government action.

Note again, this is not a 1st Amendment case, which I suspect you will continue to ignore.

      Regarding the civil issue, radio hosts often say things that lots of other people find offensive. Can they be successfully sued because 12 people thought what they said was stupid?

      Damm, I will have to give Bitter Hyperbole of the Month award.

      Hero?

      “Alex Jones is a scumbag, a moron and a pathological liar.”

      And I didn’t even say he was “right wing”, I certainly didn’t call him a conservative.

      I just said IF he was a left wing radio figure the same people that want to deny him First Amendment rights would be climbing all over themselves to defend him.

    1149. jason says:

      Also the fact I think this jury decision is disgusting and outrageous doesn’t make me an “Alex Jones supporter”.

      I always ridiculed Infowars here when Bunu thought it was the word of God.

      I support Alex Jone’s right, as well as anyone else’s, contrary to all facts and evidence and common sense, to claim Sandy Hook was a hoax.

      I think the “damage to the reputation of the parents” angle is a crock of crap. There is not a shred of evidence the parent’s reputation was damaged in any way. Did they lose their jobs because of Alex Jones. Did they fail to get a loan. Were they discriminated against in any way because of what this deranged ass said.

      This is a feel good verdict against a person almost everyone agrees is a scumbag. But it is not how the system should work.

    1150. Bitterlaw says:

      Read 1163. Tgclown is the one talking about “whittling down free speech and weakening the US Constitution.

    1151. jason says:

      They are using the tragic and senseless deaths of their children to politicize the gun control issue. As soon as they do that, then they are fair game for criticism and they cannot hide behind the “we are victims so our views are sacrosanct”.

    1152. jason says:

      “whittling down free speech and weakening the US Constitution”

      Exaggerated for one verdict but there is an element of truth to it.

      Alex Jones should be able to say Sandy Hook was a hoax without having to pay $4 million.

    1153. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason says there is not a shred of evidence that the parents’ reputation was damaged but did not watch the trial, read the transcripts or review any evidence at all.

    1154. Albertus Magnus says:

      Alex Jones and his ilk of any political stripes should lose everything they have.

      Free speech does not include the right to lie, to defame and or to defraud people. He knew what he was doing and did it freely because people who build their fortune on peddling conspiracy theories have to keep up the narratives they spin after they get a head of steam even when they know it is a lie.

      They should lose everything they have, depending on the damage being wrought.

    1156. Tgca says:

      1st of all, like it or not, as looney as Alex Jones is, he still associates his beliefs with conservatism and advocates those beliefs so you can’t kick him out of the tent so to speak. Conservatism is a philosophy separate from the person.

      One can have conservative views and be a loon at the same time.

      Both can be true!

      That’s what is happening. Nobody said he was a good President. He stinks.

    1158. Tgca says:

      1180

      Agreed! I am sorry those parents lost their children but that loss should not be the justification for taking away constitutional rights from over 300 million people.

      6,000 AA die in ghettos annually from violence, including many more younger people than in the incident at hand so why is that not justification for also taking away constitutional rights?

      I do NOT think those parents’ reputations were harmed at all. If anything, I think what Alex Jones said probably provided them more sympathy and benefited their reputations and status among Americans.

      This was a feel good award to attack someone libs identify with the right. If he had been a leftist, I would bet Jadon’s life there would have been no such award in Austin…maybe in Alabama but not Austin.

      Disagree! We are supposed to be a nations of law. I have worked in company’s where we were sued for defamation of terminated employees, claiming they were harmed by the company’s actions.

      You must show they suffered damages IN ADDITION to prevail in such legal suits. Our lawyers informed us it’s a high bar to prove defamation.

      What EXACT damages did these parents suffer that warrant compensation? Name them specifically?

      If we are going to base legal judgments on “FEEL good” measures than our justice system will be utter chaos.

      In theory, probably every regular poster here could be sued under the same premise if we accept judgments based on “FEELINGS” instead of the law.

      Being a scum does not mean the law should work against you.

    1160. Tgca says:

      1181

      Agreed!

      My point about whittling down the Constitution is not about this case alone but about if this was the standard of legal precedents which here appears to be:

      someone said something horrible and untrue and that was mean and hurt other’s FEELINGS so let’s discard their constitutional rights and penalize them under the law to teach them a lesson…especially someone with conservative views.

      In essence, this kind of precedent would stifle free speech.

      Not only was Alex Jones not responsible but this is everyday faire of being online. Politicians, celebrities, and anyone with media presence contend with it routinely.

      Why not sue Twitter or Facebook or Google or whomever controlled the content.

      I also ask what posts by the parents led to such supposed “damages.”

      Were they pushing political messages? Were they politicizing the death of their children that led to the vile responses?

    1199. Tgca says:

      I think me and my allying Butt Buddy Jadon and have shown the absurdity of this lawsuit.

      But hey, if you can win a lawsuit against McDs for $3M for putting a hot cup of coffee between your legs and having it scald you when it spilled over, I guess you can win a $4M lawsuit against someone claiming it was a hoax as you go and politicize the death of innocent children.

      The jury was wrong and should have found for McDonalds. As a follow up, the judge reduced the award to $640,000. It settled during the appeal for a confidential amount.

    1202. jason says:

      I agree. The decision was absurd, I hope a real court will throw it out.

      I just wish Alex Jones was not such a despicable scumbag. How contemptible do you have to be to tell people who have had their grade school children murdered in cold blood?

      Yet, we cannot allow the wokesters and the MSM and left wing DAs and judges dictate what is offensive thought and opinion and what isn’t.

      THAT is the much more important issue here and much more important than Alex Jones or the Sandy Hook parents.

    1203. jason says:

      The jury was wrong and should have decided that no matter how offensive and in poor taste Alex Jones’ comments were, he was entitled to his opinion. Awarding money to punish him for his views is horrible precedent. Bitter can come with 100,000 pages of testimony, I doubt any of it will definitively show the parents ever lost a penny in lost revenue or any other type of financial loss due to Alex Jones’ views. If the jury wanted to “send a message” they should have awarde the parents a dollar. $4 million is beyond ridiculous.

      But I have said my piece on Alex Jones and am moving on. In the future, I will continue to regard him as kooky moron. That didn’t change.

      Well, coming from someone who has an entourage where the average age is 13, I will NOT be lectured dammit!

    1205. Bitterlaw says:

      So there can never be a legitimate defamation suit ever against anybody nobody what is said. Got it.

      As for the said little clown’s comment, I don’t have an entourage. In the winter I have basketball teams. In the spring, I have a softball team. I only see them in the gym or on the field. I guess when you are picked last in every game as a child, the concept of team is hard to comprehend.

    1206. Tgca says:

      My fish are doing fine. I have over 80 now and lost like 6 to 8 in a few months.

      I did learn a trick or two from one professional aquarist and all seems to be doing better now.

      1. Don’t buy new fish just received in stock. Wait a week or so because that’s when they’re mostly likely to suffer the most stress from moving environments and being shipped in large crowded environments. Stores often lose a certain percentage of new fish when they arrive so ask when they arrived or if you see what you like, go back a week or two later to see if they still have that stock. Don’t be afraid to ask about it. If they lie to you, don’t go there anymore because anyone that lies to their customers should not be trusted.

      2. Ask stores about any recent outbreaks or illnesses, as it does happen because all it takes is obe or two fish in community tanks to infect others. If so, wait a few weeks before getting any fish even if they say they have treated the outbreak. It can take a fish a couple of weeks to show signs of an illness from stress or contamination. This happened to me twice where I found out after the fact.

      3. Use the drip method to acclimate your fish to the new environment for 45 minutes to an hour + instead of the routine 15 minute bag in the tank method most use. Acclimating fish is not only about temperature changes which fish are very sensitive to but also about PH, GH, KH levels that could impact them. Of course, this also assumes your water is free of ammonia and nitrites and have low nitrate levels and is adequately oxygenated because these can make fish sick very quickly and have long-term impacts. I monitor my water parameters a few times a week and do partial water changes weekly as well. I spend at least an hour a day tending to these damn fish so I hope they appreciate it.

      4. Avoid feeding fish for the 1st day and leave lights off and let them destress a bit. Moving fish from one environment to another is very stressful on a fish and the most common reason their immune system weakens and opens them up to diseases they could otherwise easily fight off.

      5. ALWAYS quarantine fish for 3 to 4 weeks if possible to avoid passing any illness to other fish in a community tank. This time will also give them ample opportunity to destress in a new environment without a bunch of other tankmates bugging them.

      6. Use a preventative maintenance of treating new fish in quarantine just like a new puppy you bring home. Generally a week of positive and negative gram bacteria, Ich, and parasite treatment is recommended.

      7. Accept that it’s normal that a certain amount of fish will not survive a stressful situation just like some people routinely pass from the flu. It’s quite natural to see some dead fish in tanks at a store and those are generally the ones with weaker immune systems that succumbed to the stress of harsh relocation so be aware you may be taking some weaker fish home and you will probably lose them within 2 weeks.

      8. Feed high quality food and don’t over feed them like your Jadon’s wife preparing his meals. Another reason fish routinely pass besides stress and poor water conditions is over feeding. It can impact them very quickly.

      9. Don’t overstock your tank where fish have no space and are living on top of one another like in the bad parts of Philly. They need ample space to move about so try to replicate their real world environment as much as possible with plenty of hiding places and real plants too. Fish love to feel safe just like the people in the good parts of Philly.

      10. Interact with your fish. Once they get used to your presence and feeding them, they will look to interact with you. Many fish are intelligent and quite playful and engaging.

      11. …and for Christ’s sake, don’t leave Jadon alone in your house with any cooking utensils or working stoves about.

      Follow all these and you will have success in your aquariums.

      You say toe-may-toe, I say toe-mah-toe.

      Team, entourage…all the same with Bitter.

      …and there you go again with that white elitist Radnor privilege assuming we all had the same upbringing.

      We did not have team sports growing up where I lived. The only routine team sport I engaged in was running from cops or gangs.

      Correction:

      We did play dodge ball and duck duck goose, both of which I excelled at but you try chasing after some little Puerto Rican kid with wild curly hair and see how successful you are at catching him.

      No joking! I was called Speedy Gonzales or Road Runner for a bit there because I was one fast little mofo which you have to be when you have older siblings routinely engaged in torturing you.

      My biggest sports accomplishment was when I was the middle school champion in the 100 yard dash. My 2nd biggest sports accomplishment was the runner up in a gym competition in the 5th grade of sit-ups. I came in like 3 short of this white trash guy who stole my thunder but I still beat out dozens of others.

      Ummm…

      1st of all, you know little about Newark schooling. Yes, there was basketball as that was the major sports pastime in the streets but the school athletics were very scarce compared to most areas in the Sewer State.

      2nd, Shaq had a very stable home with an adoptive father who was an army sergeant to keep him focused. Most kids had no such stability…and he left Newark as an adolescent and did not start playing in a team until his high school years in Texas.

      3rd, at 4’11 and 77 pounds, did you really expect me to play basketball against 6 footers?

      4th, I was accepted to play on a little league baseball team but my parents did not have the required $25 fee and they refused the gift from a family friend whose son was also accepted to play on the team so instead I went to most games and watched the other kids play and walked home with some of them afterwards. I always felt it was out of spite from my stepdad that I did not get my team spot because my mom never refused money or gifts otherwise. So who knows, I could have been another Roberto Clemente or ARod…or not.

    1213. Tgca says:

      Yes. We played a bit more ghetto version of duck duck goose. Instead of tapping someone on the head it was a more of a harsh smack and you run that got the other dude to jump up going after you yelling you mothaf*ckin’ …

      I think that is why ducks like me. They always follow me around or come rushing towards me when they see me. It may be partly because I feed them but I think it’s more than that.

      I was just stalked earlier today on the lake by three siblings that have grown pretty big from just wee little babies a couple of months ago. 15 of 20 babies survived and I feel so proud as an adoptive Duck Dad.

      By the way, small fish in the wild have a much shorter lifespan than those kept in captivity. Small freshwater fish are often preyed upon and spend a good deal of their life trying to avoid and hide from predators.

      That is not something they experience in a good well-kept aquarium. Yes, they may be confined to smaller areas so there are trade-offs but they can be quite content and have better quality of life in captivity.

      Humans did not evolve so they could live in heated and air-conditioned homes in the good part of Philly but now many do.

      People adapt! So do fish!

      A message about the joy of atheism fron MSNBC:

      “At the same time, atheism can address the social and spiritual vacuum emerging in the wake of the slow death of mainstream organized religion. This requires learning from religion, not indiscriminately attacking it. By putting together study groups, communities for secular meditation, and elucidating the meaning and joys of atheism without spewing venom toward all religion, atheists can build spaces for religion-skeptical people to find purpose, think about ethics, form community and consider more carefully how to build a better society.”

      Now the jury in Austin has agreed upon a $45million punitive damages for Alex Jones for a total of $49.2 million in exercising his free speech.

      This is absurd! I expect it will get reversed on appeal, as it should.

      I see no evidence that suggests these parents suffered anywhere near what this award suggests. In fact, it appears they’re profiting from the terrible ordeal.

      I would not be surprised if this is all driven by lawyers taking advantage of the parent’s grief.

      Putin’s relationship with the Chinese does not appear too chummy:

      “Russia arrested a top scientist Saturday in Novosibirsk, just days after another scientist’s arrest in the same Siberian city.

      According to the Russian state news agency TASS, Anatoly Maslov was arrested on suspicion of treason. Citing a source close to the investigation, TASS claims that “Maslov is suspected of providing data that is a state secret.” In addition to his position as a professor at Novosibirsk State University (NSU), Maslov, 75, is the chief researcher of the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. His research centers around viscous gas dynamics, in which he is a well-known specialist.

      Following his arrest, Maslov was transferred to a detention center outside Moscow where he awaits trial. His case is being investigated by the FSB, the Russian Federation’s primary security agency and successor to the KGB.

      Maslov was arrested just days after Dmitry Kolker, another NSU scientist, was also arrested on suspicion of treason. Kolker, 54, who was a professor of physics and head of the university’s laboratory of quantum optical technologies, suffered from advanced pancreatic cancer and died Sunday at a hospital close to his detention center. Although he was alleged to have collaborated with Chinese intelligence agencies, Kolker maintained his innocence until his death.”

      FBI director confirms his agents found the following during the raid of Trump’s home:

      1) One out of the 9 toilets had a yellow ring visible at the water line suggesting to agents that Trump had flushed illegal drugs before agents arrived.

      2) A screen door would not fully latch and should have been replaced as it was a hazard to agents storming the house.

      3) One side of the toaster in the kitchen did not fully eject the toast, suggesting Trump may have tampered with the mechanism.

      4) A cockroach was seen in the garage, raising suspicions at what else might be lurking.

      5) One of the bedroom ceiling fans squeaked loudly–an obvious attempt to mask hushed voices so the FBI’s hidden microphones cannot pick up what is said.

      6) Ashes were found in a backyard fire-pit, indicating Trump had received a tip about the raid and burned key documents before agents arrived.

      7) One of Trump’s staff members had a guilty look, confirming Trump was hiding something.
