Oz and Vance Both Trail By Double Digits in PA and OH

    I really wish we would get a new poll for my home state of Maryland to see how badly Donald Trump’s chosen GOP candidate for Governor is losing but for now we will see how badly his chosen GOP candidates for the US Senate are doing in Ohio and Pennsylvania with new polls from Center Street PAC.

    John Fetterman (D) 52%
    Mehmet Oz (R) 38%

    US SENATE – OHIO (Momentive/SM)
    Tim Ryan (D) 49%
    JD Vance (R) 38%

    The PA poll was done July 29-August 1 and the OH poll was done August 1-3, both among likely voters. Republicans are trailing in two states they currently hold US Senate seats in by double digits and they expect to retake control of the US Senate this election cycle?

      Fetterman’s privileged background is becoming an issue. His family was giving him $50,000 a year into his 40s while he played working class hero.

      I predict Oz will win.

      Is this a joke? The leftist Center Street PAC commissions a poll utilizing a survey monkey, the data from which is weighted and interpreted in a client pleasing manner.

      “Over 2 million people take user-generated surveys on the SurveyMonkey platform each day. We select a random sample of these respondents to voluntarily take part in our research surveys. After completing their initial survey, they see a “thank-you” page inviting them to take an additional, optional survey—those are our research surveys that we conduct in partnership with media outlets and other”

    4. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      3. The RRH polling site has the same low opinion:

      “OH-Sen: In an extremely dubious poll, Center Street PAC is claiming Rep. Tim Ryan (D) leads J.D. Vance 49%-38%. The poll has some serious weighting issues so it’s not even worth throwing on the pile.”

    5. Bitterlaw says:

      Fetterman finally met with voters today. He wore his best sweatshirt and shorts. Seriously. It’s blazing hot and he wears a hoody.

      The new CBS Reports documentary, “Arming Ukraine,” explores why much of the billions of dollars of military aid that the U.S. is sending to Ukraine doesn’t make it to the front lines: “Like 30% of it reaches its final destination.” Stream now:

      One of the primary reasons Meijer(R-MI) and JHB(probably lost her primary) in Washington was their yes votes on the recent and useless gun control bill.
      Let’s thank Cocaine Mitch, John Cornyn and other Senate GOP(e)’s for their wisdom and foresight.

      For political reasons, I almost want the mini-BBB legislation to pass. The provisions are so bad that in the fall, the GOP will use this cudgel to batter the Democrats. Here is one:

      Not bad for a conspiracy theory scumbag….

      “Mr. Pettingill’s testimony on Friday, as well as the Free Speech Systems bankruptcy filing, yielded several key observations about Mr. Jones’s finances, including:

      Infowars averaged $53.2 million in annual revenue between September 2015 and December 2018, Mr. Pettingill said.

      Since then, there has been a “nice healthy increase” in the company’s revenue, including from sales of survivalist merchandise and supplements, and it brought in more than $64 million last year, he said.

      At one point, Mr. Jones was paying himself an average of $6 million a year, Mr. Pettingill said”

    13. Phil says:

      Where’s the 70% going? Good question. Some accountability would be nice but there isn’t any so don’t ask. That makes you a Putin stooge.

      I’m a new papa! QUINTUPLETS!

      A few weeks ago I moved my Endler Livebearers, a small cousin of guppies, to a separate quarantine tank since they seemed to be agitating my adolescent Hatchet Fish, who are very peaceful top swimmers and Endlers are more lively and excitable

      About 2 weeks later I noticed tiny little specs moving around the bottom of my Hatchet quarantine tank.

      Well, lo and behold, to make a short story long, they were baby Endlers that survived birth.

      Usually Endlers have about 15 fry on average but they’re terrible mamas! They’ll eat their young right after birth. So usually baby Endlers can only survive by escaping and hiding in plants until they grow big enough to not be snack food anymore.

      So I saved these 5 little fellows and will unite them with their God awful mother in a few weeks when they’re big enough. They grow super fast and are already like 5 times the size as they were a few weeks ago.

      Males grow to about an inch while females can max out at about 1.75 inches. Like many fish species, males also have the more attractive coloring, in this case green, yellow, orange, black.. See pics below of

      We cannot accountability.

      Don’t worr another $50 billion grift bill will be requested in October.

      Biden’s Beotch may object because it’s election season, but agree to $25 billion..

    18. Tina says:

      And here is a key part of the cbs report:

      “There is really no information as to where they’re going at all. All this stuff goes across the border, and then kind of like something happens, kind of like, 30% maybe reaches its final destination.”

    19. Tina says:

      Just remember it goes across the border.

      We don’t know

      Something happens.

      = 30%

      With more grit in October.

      At CPAC, Mike Lindell says to watch the judiciary at the end of the month, because big things are in the works after his new ‘evidence’ presentation: “I’m telling you, after the 20th and the 21st of August .. you’re gonna see the biggest change this country has ever seen.”

      – Keep the faith! Mike Lindell suggested yesterday there’s still a chance Trump will be reinstated as president later this month.

    21. Gordon Allen says:

      I watched the entire video. Putting it mildly the impression was awful, and had SNAFU written all over it. Where in blazes is the Ukrainian Government in all this??. This entire transmit of weapons/equipment, declared as essential, shown in the video showed a total absence of any government control or involvement-as in zero. It seems “free lancers/private organizations” are running the entire Ukrainian logistical trail from the Border to the “front”. This cannot be representative of what’s really happening, because otherwise we’re pouring money and equipment down a rat hole. Think Afghanistan/Iraq.

    22. Tina says:

      Where is it going?

      The US Gay Monkey Pox spread shot up another 6% yesterday with US cases now over 7,500 with the greatest amounts by far in Caleefawnyuh and NY.

      Thanks to the LGBTQIA2S+ for their contributions to American society.

    26. Tgca says:

      I too watched the entire video Tina posted from 6.

      It is a known fact these weapons are not being tracked and there is a black market for them run by Ukrainians. It is admitted a few times in this video by those distributing the weapons.

      One US veteran working with the Ukrainians says he doesn’t care about weapons disappearing into a black market. He cares about killing Russians. Maybe he’ll care when one of those weapons finds its way to a terrorist group in Europe to shoot down a plane with American citizens or blow up a tourist location with American citizens.

      This is the problem with a corrupt state. The weapons are just being delivered in the street to anyone claiming they are willing to fight.

      I get it’s a catch-22 but at the end of the day, if these weapons find their way to places in Europe that kill innocents, the US and it’s partners are partly responsible for not attaching strings to them.

    27. jason says:

      get it’s a catch-22 but at the end of the day, if these weapons find their way to places in Europe that kill innocents,”

      Let’s worry about the real issue here, the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we can worry about “where weapons go” later.

      In any event, there are plenty of weapons around in the black market for terrorists to access, the idea that “attaching strings” would prevent a terrorist attack is just more excuses to appease Putin.

    28. jason says:

      Mike Lindell suggested yesterday there’s still a chance Trump will be reinstated as president later this month.”

      I hope he is right.

      Anyone doubt Trump was a better President than Biden?

    29. jason says:

      and then kind of like something happens, kind of like, 30% maybe reaches its final destination.”

      “Kind of like”…”maybe30%”. Wow, short on facts, high on BS.

      What a bunch of Putin appeaser drivel.

    30. Bitterlaw says:

      Irony Meter explodes as people upset that only 30% of the weapons sent to Ukraine are being used against Russians (pure speculation) are the same people who want NO weapons used against Russia and want Ukraine to surrender.

    31. jason says:

      I am a great fan of Mike Lindell, a self made multi-millionaire who started My Pillow with nothing and is now selling $200 million a year, with over 41 million pillows sold (plus all kinds of other st-ff). And for those that think it is important, the pillows are US made in MN.

      He doesn’t have to be out there subjecting himself to ridicule and having his outlets cancelled by woke companies, not to mention all the money he is spending on his campaign against voter fraud.

      I don’t agree with all his theories, obviously, and I doubt he can come up with enough evidence at this point to reverse the election outcome. The odds are just too stacked against him.

      But he is an admirable and successful man doing what he truly believes in. I wish there were more people with his entrepreneurial spirit in America.

    32. jason says:

      Irony Meter explodes as people upset that only 30% of the weapons sent to Ukraine are being used against Russians (pure speculation) are the same people who want NO weapons used against Russia and want Ukraine to surrender.”

      This hilarious crock of crap is just the latest in the campaign to award Putin the Ukraine by unconditional surrender.

      The Putin appeasers are getting desperate.

      And here is the bottom line: even if it was true only a third of the weapons were getting to their destination (and it is not true, pure BS) it would still be worth it.

    33. jason says:

      Bitter, what do you think of this argument.

      There is alleged corruption in Ukraine so it should be ok for it to be taken over by an even more certified corrupt regime in Russia.

      Damm, what a persuasive argument.

    34. Gordon Allen says:

      Jason. Have you or Bitterlaw watched this CBS video? The point is we don’t have eness supplies of weapons to just throw away.
      The thing I found unimaginable is that the Ukrainian military or government was nowhere to be seen. That’s who these weapons are for. The lack of organization, if accurately presented, is appalling,and guarantees Ukraine will never recover lost territory.
      I strongly believe 100% of any weapons we send to Taiwan will end up in the intended hands.
      This is either CBS fake news,or a ghastly indictment of our arms to Ukraine along the lines of Afghanistan.
      We should absolutely try and find out the truth.

    35. Albertus Magnus says:

      Mike Lindell, a great businessman, is still a political snake oil salesman.

      All last summer, he touted his pending documentary…organized a three-day conference to build the suspense, interest and momentum and ended up producing NOTHING. Just a re-hash of his conspiracy theories and NO evidence to back it up.

      Last year, good people seeking election integrity placed a lot of hope in him.

      Anyone willing to fall for that BS again is a fool and shouldnt be allowed to drive cars or operate small machinery.

    36. Phil says:

      Some of the money gets to the front lines in Ukraine. How much? Who knows. Nobody with a half a brain thinks a huge percentage of it isn’t siphoned off through corruption (and some on here don’t care about that anyway). After all, there aren’t any accountability guardrails once we send them the check – none and to a Ukraine that isn’t exactly known for it’s, uh, above board government accountability…but what the hell. The Senate is fixing to throw away 350 billion to the wasteful Green New Deal boondoggle and Democratic Party interest group giveaways. It’s only $$ and with 80K new IRS agents to shake down the taxpayers plus the government printing presses…well, you know the game. The beat goes on.

      Just keep printing the green stuff we don’t have and spend it on whatever – so called “climate change”, Ukraine, whatever. We don’t have the money and it just feeds more inflation but who cares? Let the good times roll. Crank up the printing presses.

    37. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil has a good point but if we are going to spend money we don’t have, we should be glad a lot of it is killing Russian invaders.

    38. Phil says:

      True. I guess killing Russians at least shows some tangible results. Can’t argue that that’s not something at least…Of course the majority of the money that doesn’t make it to the battlefield and is just lining people’s pockets isn’t anything but a complete and total waste. However, the tens of billions earmarked for “climate change” in the Shumer-Manchin “inflation reduction act” doesn’t show anything tangible whatsoever. Absolutely nothing – except to feed inflation and put us in more debt printing more money out of thin air.

    39. Gordon Allen says:

      Phil,you’re of course right the government just shovels money out; think of all that Covid money that went: not to Covid.
      But my concern is also we don’t have endless supplies of weapons,and there is no printing press for them.
      We are no longer the ” Arsenal of Democracy circa 1940’s, pr even 1980s. Our defense industrial base has shrunk greatly

      We just can’t throw weapons and equipment around like the old days.

    40. jason says:

      The point is we don’t have eness supplies of weapons to just throw away.”

      The point is we cannot allow the Russians to recreate the Soviet Union.

      The money we are spending now is a drop in the bucket compared to the what another Cold War will cost.

      Some of the weapons/money are being diverted.


      There is a much bigger picture here the Putin sycophants want to ignore.

    41. jason says:

      Mike Lindell, a great businessman, is still a political snake oil salesman.”


      At least he is out there fighting for election integrity and spending his own money doing it.

      I would trust him more with a car or machinery than I would a moron like you.

    42. Tgca says:


      Mike Lindell? Gimmee a break.

      David Hogg is gonna bury him in the pillow business!

      Oops! I guess that did not work out too well for Hogg.

      The only thing this Nazi-saluting snowflake is doing with a pillow is burying his face in it with his arse stuck up in the air for the libs and MSM.

    43. jason says:

      This is either CBS fake news

      Neville Allen has got his head so far up Putin’s ass that he now believes CBS news if somehow it favors Putin and Russian aggression.

      The good news is maybe he can save money on magazines and video games now that he thinks CBS “news” is where it’s at.

    44. jason says:

      Yeah, I am sure Albertus Idioticus is still looking for a David Hogg pillow to buy.

    45. Tgca says:


      This was a CBS report by a guy who worked for mostly liberal outlets like CBS, CNN, Al Gore’s channel. He did a short stint at Fox Sports.

      Watch the complete video. The people claiming these things are the people actually working with and distributing the weapons so I don’t see how this is Pootin disinformation.

      Whether it’s 30% or 75%, I guarantee you folks will be blaming Biden later on if these weapons find themselves on the market killing folks just like you rightfully blamed Biden about Afghanistan and Obama on US weapons sold in Mexico and used in the US but failed to blame GWB for weapons in Mosul confiscated after the Iraq army failed there and ran away.

    46. Tgca says:


      So Bitter agrees with Phil and the rest of us that Ukraine is corrupt and the corrupt leaders there are profiting from the war more so than dispelling Russia from Ukraine.

      Maybe the war would be over and Russia retreated if the actual level of weaponry was used in fighting Russia instead of lining the pockets of Russian gubbermint officials and their cronies.

    47. Tgca says:

      I would ask those here questioning this CBS report to identify the Western or Ukrainian agencies overseeing the distribution of weapons in Ukraine.

      What proof do you have that the weaponry is being distributed as expected?

      I don’t believe every report from the MSM but when they have video showing the distribution of weapons with absolutely no oversight and the fighters themselves are admitting to the corruption of their own gubbermint, then I say in the absence of anything else, it’s worth a look at, especially since we know Ukraine is corrupt because of past US intelligence reports outlining it for years.

    48. Tgca says:

      CA, PA and NY suck! Like we did not already know that.

      Peeps rather live in Floreedah nearly 2 to 3 times more than those 3 states.

      Poll proves it!

      Florida received the highest percentage of all the specific states listed, as 18 percent said they would move to the Sunshine State. California followed seven points behind with 11 percent choosing the Golden State, followed by New York (10 percent), Texas (9 percent), Pennsylvania (6 percent), and Illinois (4 percent). Over one-third, 37 percent, said “some other state.”

    49. Bitterlaw says:

      I did not agree Ukraine is corrupt. I said I am glad what we are sending is killing Russians.

    50. Tgca says:

      So Bitter disagrees with the position of the US which for years was that Ukraine has corrupt gubbermint.

      What sources do you have that dispute the official US position about corruption in Ukraine?

      Clearly, if you disagree Ukraine is corrupt after the US has taken that position, you must have some other evidence that shows Ukraine is NOT corrupt.

      After all, you just argued yesterday if evidence is presented in a trial, then to dispute it, you should show otherwise.

      I challenge you in that same premise.

      Please provide rationale that Ukraine is not corrupt.

      I’ll be back later to check in to see if you found evidence.


    51. Tina says:

      I heart the David Hogg pillows.


    52. Gordon Allen says:

      Jason. Do you ever tire of flagrantly lying to cover up your ignorance and obsession?
      Tell me this: IF CBS is right,( notice the IF),isn’t Ukraine a lost cause? If not,why? Exactly?.And why isn’t Taiwan more important. Skip the personal invective,and offer a cogent reply. If you can?

    53. Tgca says:

      Bad, cheating, arguing, fighting, substance abuse using parents are responsible for kid that shot up school and killed 4 according to prosecutor and that’s why they’re also charged in the school shootings with manslaughter.

      This is absurd! Of course a toxic environment leads people to make bad choices in life but unless he was insane, he still knows right from wrong.

      His parents did not make him pull the trigger. He pulled it.

      Dismiss the case against the parents and execute the POS!

      I’ll answer for Jadon since I’m his Butt Buddy and ally.

      NO! Absolutely not!

      Next question.

    55. Bitterlaw says:

      I also did not say that Ukraine is not corrupt. Let me try to be very clear.

      Ukraine was invaded by Russia without any justification. Whether Ukraine is corrupt or not is irrelevant. Keep sending weapons to Ukraine until Russian forces leave Ukraine. Straighten out corruption later.

    56. Bitterlaw says:

      China is a threat. Russia is a threat. Both can be true.

      Why does Gordon think there can only be one threat at a time? If China does attack Taiwan, I am sure that there will be many posts on why the US should not be involved militarily. Not 1 dead American for Taiwan is going to be posted many times.

    57. Bitterlaw says:

      This is why dolphin’s are a man’s best friend. Would dogs save somebody from sharks? No.

    58. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      53. “IF CBS is right,( notice the IF),isn’t Ukraine a lost cause? If not,why? ”

      For a lost cause, Ukraine seems to be fighting very well. Also, it seems throughout the battle front, the Ukrainians seem to be heavily and well armed with weapons, and the new weaponry like the HIMARS, howitzers, self propelled artillery, seem to be making it to be rapidly to the front lines. This is impressive considering how large the Ukraine is, and that it does not really have a great transportation network — it is an overall a logistics and supply success.

      What impressed me the most about the CBS report was the success of the volunteers in delivering small arms weaponry in a very dangerous circumstances. There is a lot of talk about the one person’s claim that only 30% of the deliveries make it to the front line — given the way the Ukrainians are fighting now, I question this is true. Delivering weaponry to soldiers fighting what amounts to an insurgency campaign, with partisans fighting in smaller groups, is a logistical nightmare. Was impressed with the bravery of the individuals in the CBS report.

      I have no doubt there is corruption, and it needs to be addressed. During the Civil War, the North had serious corruption issues in proving supplies to its troops. The North in the Civil War had logistical and corruption nightmares. Yet Union troops were better supplied and often better armed than the South, and it contributed to the Union’s success.

      Because of new weaponry being delivered to the Ukrainian front line, momentum my be shifting in the Ukraine’s favor. The larger equipment is being flown into the central Ukraine, and provided directly to the Ukrainian military. This has Putin nervous, which is why he is lashing out at NATO’s new weapon deliveries to the Ukraine — which seems to contradict the claim that weaponry is not making it to the front lines.

    59. Tgca says:


      Ok. I agree on certain points you made and glad you acknowledge Ukraine is a corrupt state but if those weapons show up to be used in terrorist attacks against Europeans and Americans at a later date, then there should be accountability from the Ukrainians.

      Everyone made a big deal of weapons in Afghanistan and Mexico being used or potentially used against Americans due to the incompetency of the Biden and Obama administrations but the GOP and Dems in Congress will have to accept responsibility if those weapons show up elsewhere as well.

      Whether it’s 70% or 25% of them does not matter. To have Americans killed with their own weapons because distribution was not monitored is NOT acceptable.

    60. Bitterlaw says:

      SDC -Those pushing the corruption argument are no better than Putin justifying his invasion as a means to rid Ukraine of Nazis. The Ukrainians are fighting fiercely to save their nation. Personally, I am glad the U.S. is on the side of Ukraine rather than listening to those advocating for the surrender of Ukraine while calling it a “deal” or negotiated peace.

    61. Tgca says:


      I don’t know of anyone here who has said we should not defend Taiwan. In fact, I’ve heard the opposite over time because Taiwan is a direct strategic interest to the US where Ukraine is not.

    62. Tgca says:


      BS! You are out of touch with millions of Americans who feel differently.

      We are not aligned with Pootin anymore than you claim you’re not aligned with wokesters because of the circles you run in, where you live, the products you support, and how often you defend corrupt Philly and the wokesters.

      If we’re no better than Pootin, then you’re no better than the wokesters.

      Tit for tat dude!

    63. Bitterlaw says:

      You will hear it if war comes to Taiwan. I believe those willing to flex their muscles over Taiwan just did it to cover their weakness on Ukraine. Russia is a direct threat to U.S. interests whether you want to admit it or not.

    64. Tgca says:


      SDC is FINALLY acknowledging Ukraine has a corrupt gubbermint.

      Baby steps.

      I don’t disagree with much of what he says but to my point in 60, if later on Americans are killed by terrorists with its own weapons provided by Ukraine corrupt officials, I hope he will recognize that his blind support was misguided with respect to loss of American lives.

      There is no reason the US could not have provided more oversight in the distribution of these weapons.

    65. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzz. Your posts about Ukrainian corruption could be written by Putin. Supporting a deal or negotiated peace is just a demand for Ukrainian surrender. Again, no different than what Putin wants.

    66. Tgca says:


      I disagree! I’ve heard people talk about defending Taiwan way before the Ukraine war started. It’s a key strategic partner. China is our biggest threat!

    67. Tgca says:


      …and your posts about Ukraine can be written by Zelenskyy, who has complete control of the media in his country, or did you forget that?

    68. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca wants it both ways. He was adamant that no U.S. personnel be in Ukraine as it would escalate the war BUT also wants U.S. personnel with clipboards, scanners, and other equipment keeping track of every bullet and shell all the way up to the front lines.

      So many posts about Ukrainian corruption but silence on Russian corruption. Again serving Putin’s interests.

    69. Bitterlaw says:

      Far better to be compared to Zelensky, who is fighting to save Ukraine than Putin, who is fighting to destroy it. Thank you.

    70. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      61. Actually the propaganda campaign about new weapons and corruption appears to have originated with Putin.

      Kazakhstan, which Putin considers a part of his new Russian empire, just told him to shove off. And Azerbaijan is creating trouble in Armenia, which is a Russian client state. Possibly Turkey is behind all this unrest. Now Putin is arresting Chinese spies.

    71. Tgca says:



      I said, as many posts can prove, no boots on the ground by US unless it involved other European nations. My point was the US should not go it alone.

      In fact, I thought we should have had a coalition ground force from day one to avoid this war escalating but the cowardice leaders in Europe and the US failed to do so.

      You stand corrected!

    72. Tgca says:

      I have acknowledged Russia is corrupt. We all know that already!

      But we aren’t funding Russia so no need to repeat it routinely.

      You lose again.

    73. Tgca says:


      No! We’ve known Ukraine is corrupt for years and we know from past experience with corrupt nations, any time you provide aid of any type, often significant amounts don’t get to the intended party.

      STOP trying to excuse away Ukrainian corruption. They’ve been corrupt since their independence and our gubbermint has long acknowledged it.

      I will remind you of your excuses for their corruption if weapons find their way to terrorists to use against innocent American or Europeans.

While on stage together with Mr. Putin, he had the audacity to proclaim that he had no intention of recognizing any Russia-sponsored “quasi-state formations” in Ukraine. Upping the ante, he also took a shot at Russian Duma members who had questioned Kazakhstan’s independence.

      President Putin appeared furious, responding with an insult combined with a chilling threat. Pretending to forget the name of the Kazakh leader, he claimed that all former USSR territories belong to Russia by right: “What is the Soviet Union? This is historic Russia. … You are part of historic Russia.”

      Kazakhstan had made no secret of its attitude to Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. At the outset of the invasion, Nur-Sultan declared it would not contribute troops nor support the Kremlin’s recognition of the already-occupied territories in eastern Ukraine, the Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics.”

      The same Zelenskyy who is corrupt to the bone, has acted as a dictator in his country by taking over the media and having people executed without trials?

    78. Bitterlaw says:

      I did not support Hussein in the 1980s. I was pleased that 2 enemies of the US were bleeding each other dry. To be honest, I spent high school and college in the1980s hooking up with girls. From 1986-1990, I drank beer and hooked up. A fantastic time of life.

      Tell us again how you think you’re a better husband than Trump.

      Tell us again how depression is a weakness and you mocked people for not agreeing with you on it for years.

    86. Tgca says:


      Ooooh! All CAPS! Someone is triggered. Off your meds again?

      No, you’re NOT like every other poster so stop trying to excuse your IGORENTZ away. There’s a difference between having opinions you defend and saying STOOPID chit that has no basis in science or reality because of your FEELINGS.

      I dated girls in high school and college so I do know about youthful experiences. But I also know it’s HYPOCRITICAL for people to lie and cheat for years and then have the gall to criticize others for it and claim they’re a better husband than others. Would you like guys to treat your daughter like you bragged about treating girls in high school and college? Is that the way you raised your son, telling him it’s ok to be a scumbag to ladies? ….yet you have the audacity to accuse Wes of treating women badly and claiming you’re a better husband than Trump. Double HYPOCRITE! By the way, I NEVAH cheated on anyone I dated. NEVAH! Sorry you can’t say that.

      There you go again with the Dead Niece Defense. It does not work with me that you tarnish her memory routinely with your sick defense of your self-center behavior and IGORENTZ using her unfortunate situation to try and deflect criticism. This has nothing to do with your personal loss. It has to do with your credibility on any issue after you mock others and steadfastly believe in such idiotic things like “depression is a weakness” when basic 7th grade science knows otherwise. I guess you believe the earth is flat too, eh?

      There you go again with your”you can’t understand and relate to children unless you’re a parent.” Again, pure IGORENTZ of science. I suspect the average teacher or children’s doctor knows more about kids than the average parent, especially when millions of parents in this country, of every race, culture, and economic standard raise troubled kids. Your daughter stands for everything you hate and criticize others for so look in the mirror next time you wish to criticize radical libs. You can lover her all you wish which is fine but accept that your daughter is a Bernie Sanders supporter, and its people like that who will destroy our country if we let them. That’s not being raised as an INDEPENDENT thinker, that’s radical socialism and communism.

      Now let out all that “DECADES OF RAGE” for growing up with privilege and living in a white elitist town supporting wokesters and don’t forget to type it all in CAPs too. Maybe it’ll get your heart rate up to the point we won’t have the pleasure of reading your posts here anymore.

      But we can disagree like adult men and sit down and have a nice vegan TACO lunch to discuss sometimes because I earnestly care what concerns my ally and Butt Buddy.

      Again, you try to pretend you can possibly know anything about being a parent. You don’t. Mentioning parents and doctors knowing more about children than the average parent is a stupid argument. You are also not a parent or doctor.

      You want me to die so I stop posting? Fine. I would love nothing me more than to live long enough to someday read your obituary. Of course, you have nobody to write one unless your fish are smarter than we thought.

You don’t have to be a parent to understand kids anymore than you have to be a judge to understand what’s right and wrong. It’s your simplistic mind at work again, and why I mock you for it.

      So you’re not proud of your lying, cheating and using women before your marriage. Good to know. Now apologize to Wes and Trump for judging them HYPOCRITE!

      No! I don’t wish you death. I wish you live a very long and miserable life so I can mock your IGORENTZ daily.

      Gay Monkey Pox update.

      No new numbers released by CDC over the weekend so we’ll have to wait until Monday.

      This is an informative in-depth article from NPR that surprisingly is quite honest about Monkey Pox and how it spreads.

      Though I did find it contradicting when they said it’s highly unlikely you can get it from an infected person in your home you’re not sexually active with, only .6% chance but then later it says if you’re infected, stay away from people and pets in the house.

      They also say they don’t understand why the disease is not spreading in heterosexual social and sexual networks. DUH! I can tell you why? Because most heterosexuals are not as promiscuous as most gay men who routinely either engage in numerous sexual encounters or group sex, or have routine contact with those that do. This is NOT rocket science peeps!

      Anyways, as of Friday, the US case count is over 7,500 with the biggest centralized areas by far being CA and NY.

      But if you’re purposely mean-spirited and insulting, you will get it back in dish-loads. Calling someone names or claiming they are APPEASERS or support something horrible you know they don’t, qualifies for a harsh response.

Ahem!

      …and this doctor also goes on about diversity inclusion and notes on his bio he has completed Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion CHAMPION training.

      Another TDS scalp followed by Liz’s scalp in another 9 days.

      BTW, Baris said three days ago that Kent would catch up with Beutler when the later arriving mail in votes started getting tallied. He noted that those ballots tended to be much more Trumpian than the earlier cast mail ins (all counted first) which tended to be more establishment type voters – same pattern in Arizona that propelled Lake into a comfortable lead even though she trailed by 8 pts with 65% of the vote counted on election night. Incidently, on election night while leftist trolls were tweeting about Lake’s “defeat” and Baris “polling miss” Baris doubled down and said Lake would win by 40K votes. The lefties laughed. The TDS Republicans like Megan McCain laughed. Guess what? Lake is now up 35 plus thousand and her lead will grow more as the final votes are finally counted early this week.

      Richard Baris is the man. It’s why I will await his polling before I jump on the red wave wagon. I want to see where his polling is in Senate races in Ohio, NC, Wisconsin, Arizona and Nevada before I make a final prediction for November. I’ll go with his numbers good OR bad.

Plaintiffs had the burden of proof on damages. Jones could have rebutted the claims but apparently did not. Stupid tactic again.

      I will ask again – Even though you disagree in this case, should any defamation suit ever be allowed in any case? Should Trump be allowed to sue the MSM for its knowing publication and advancement of the Russian hoax? It was certainly reported with knowing disregard for the truth and with actual malice.

    169. Tgca says:


      Dershowitz thinks the judgment will stand but expects the awards to be reduced. His argument is that these are not public figures or celebrities but private citizens so there is a difference in asserting reputational damage and harassment.

      I think that depends how much they put themselves out there as political activists. I’ve not researched it but if they did not suffer any financial loss or freedom restrictions, I see no justification for these awards, especially if they’ve been out there politically active by posting public comments or going to events as speakers. The fact that Jones may have brought more attention to any public opinions they made should be irrelevant.

      This could set off a precedent to go after almost anyone and that is absurd.

    170. Tgca says:

      170 Paul

      What kind of fish do you have besides Endlers? How many tanks?

    171. Paul says:

      I have two tanks. One is a community tank with lots of plants and tetras. No Endlers. The other tank is a 150 gallon that is part of an aquaponics system. It used to have tomato plants growing in the plant side and Tilapia growing in the tank for eating. We kind of gave up on that plan and now it just has really huge goldfish.

    172. Tgca says:

      173. Paul

      A 150 gallon tank is huge! Where do you keep that monster?

      Please DO NOT EVER invite Jadon over to your house either or you will have no more fish.

      I have 23 tanks of various sizes 3, 5, 8, 10, 16, 20, 29. Most of them have programmable multi-color lighting so it’s amazing when they light up, especially at night.

      I keep the two 3-gallon tanks as hospital tanks when fish are ill or bullied and need a safe space for a bit to get well. I also keep two 5 and one 10 gallon tanks as quarantine tanks since I started quarantining my fish for 4 weeks after I got a few that infected others.

      I am cycling two 29 gallon tanks and will be adding another 40+ fish over the next few months.

      8 of them are also separate tanks for my 8 betta as they cannot be kept together. I have equally split between males and females of different colors (white, blue, red, purple mixes) and types (veil-tail, spade tail, dumbo ear, feather tail, plakat).

      They are amazing fish and have distinct personalities I learned rather quickly. They are amazingly beautiful too.

    173. jason says:

      I read it. 2 points – the author admitted he was not a lawyer. ”


      Probably nobody on the jury was either.

    174. jason says:

      I will ask again – Even though you disagree in this case, should any defamation suit ever be allowed in any case? Should Trump be allowed to sue the MSM for its knowing publication and advancement of the Russian hoax? It was certainly reported with knowing disregard for the truth and with actual malice.”

      The answer is simple. Defamation requires damage to reputation. I am sure there are such cases, but this is certainly not one of them.

      Alex Jones is a fringe character with a history of conspiracy theories and far out claims. The idea that these parent’s reputation was damaged because Jones didn’t believe their interviews is preposterous. As the author of the article points out, “hurt feelings” does not translate to reputational loss.

      This is key:

      “Accusations made against you by fringe figures don’t hurt your reputation. If receiving death threats based on the public statements of the subject of a story opened that person to financial liability, many RedState writers would be independently wealthy and looking forward to a cushy and early retirement.

      The trial was nothing more than using the legal process to punish an unpopular person for saying stupid st-ff. If that is a crime, we are all f***ed.”

      So I wouldn’t have given the parents a plugged nickel.

      Regarding Trump, as a public figure, I doubt he can prove the MSM damaged his reputation anymore than Biden can prove damage to his reputation from the conservative media alleging he is senile.

    175. Bitterlaw says:

      They proved damages to the jury. Jason does not like the damages they proved.

      If a jury awarded Trump damages for defamation against Rachel Maddow, Jason would cheer.

    176. Wes says:

      Tg, have you ever watched Jigoku (1960)? It’s a Japanese movie depicting in the first half the various crimes and underhanded acts committed by its characters and in the second their punishment in Jigoku, the Buddhist Hell.

      The scenes in Jigoku are brutal involving flaying, boiling, and being hacked apart by various oni (demons), all bathed in garish green and blue light. It’s one of the most influential hora eiga (Japanese horror movies) despite a somewhat flawed presentation of Buddhist eschatology.

    177. jason says:

      They proved damages to the jury”

      They didn’t prove a damm thing to the woke jury. Bitter knows no reputations were damaged, that is the biggest crock of crap.

      Alex Jones was punished for being, as the article states, “an unpopular guy who says stupid stuff”.

      It is a shameful verdict and a slippery slope of huge consequences.

    178. jason says:

      If a jury awarded Trump damages for defamation against Rachel Maddow, Jason would cheer.”


      Really stupid.

      Nobody has been more critical of Alex Jones and Infowars than I have, I used to mock Bunu incessantly for linking them.

      But I can separate my disdain for Alex Jones and see there is a much bigger picture here, which is you have the right to be a kook, and this disgusting and outrageous verdict is a horrible precedent.

    179. Phil says:

      Haven’t followed the Jones case but the trial was in Austin I believe. You couldn’t find a more woke jury pool this side of DC. Austin is ridiculous. Jones was going to get hammered….just like Trump will have zero chance if the Biden Justice Dept charges Him with anything related to Jan 6th. He’ll be a dead duck with a DC jury full of Democratic donors and TDS types. That’s all there is in DC BTW.

    180. Tgca says:


      I agree with my ally and Butt Buddy Jadon.

      It’s absurd! This Austin jury decision was meant to go after Jones because he is perceived as associated with the conservative movement.

      I would bet Jadon’s life this would have gotten nowhere in Austin if it were a liberal being sued for defamation against conservatives.

      It sets a terrible precedent and makes a mockery of the judicial system and free speech.

    181. Wes says:

      I must be missing something here. How did Jones go to civil trial in Austin, TX, when Sandy Hook is in CT?

    182. jason says:

      It’s absurd! This Austin jury decision was meant to go after Jones because he is perceived as associated with the conservative movement.”

      This would have been laughed out of court if, using Bitter’s example, this was Rachel Maddow.

    183. jason says:

      You couldn’t find a more woke jury pool this side of DC.”

      No kidding, that is why they prosecution didn’t have to prove any “damages” all they had to do is describe how hurt the parent’s feeling were that Alex Jones didn’t believe their interviews and bingo, 44 million dollars.

      It is beyond absurd.

      That should be a compliment.

      Homo neanderthalensis had more robust skeletons than Homo sapiens and produced some of the most advanced technology of the Paleolithic. They didn’t reproduce at the same rate as Homo sapiens though, thus leading to absorption into Homo sapiens and eventual extinction, though strands of their DNA remain in modern humans. Most likely Meghan McCain, given her lineage of European descent, has Neanderthal DNA.

      Let’s hear it for the Neanderthals!

      She is soooo dramatic. She actually thinks she speaks for the GOP but despises them at the same time.

      She’s getting more and more like that other fat skank Ana Navarro who supports every Dem position, commiserates daily with The View hosts, has severe TDS, hates MAGA voters but claims she’s a Republican.

      Overall, the poll shows, Hispanics disapprove of President Joe Biden 55% to 45%. On the economy, 64% disapprove of him. On inflation, 74% of Hispanics disapprove of him. On gas prices, 72% disapprove of him. On the issue of guns, 59% of Hispanics disapprove of Biden. On whether Biden is a unifying political figure, 62% say he is not. On whether Biden is competent, 51% say he is not.

      On the congressional ballot for this year, Hispanic voters only favor Democrats by 3 points, 45% to 42%”

      I hope if we get a GOP POTUS in 2024, Trump will scale it back down to size and eliminate those jobs not absolutely necessary where these folks get to work at home and not meet performance standards.

    200. Tgca says:


      Good news for 2022 and 2024, and as expected, but don’t count out the GOP to screw it up and send the Hispanics back to the Dems in a few years.

      The GOP needs a long-term plan to attract and keep Hispanics, not a short-term plan.

      I have always thought the GOP should create a task force specifically designed to go out and regularly meet with the Hispanic community and not just do outreach a few months before an election.

His opponent, socialist ogre John Fetterman, is a physical mess and cannot campaign; he hopes to re-play the Biden “Hide him and hope” game plan from 2020 and win via mean tweets.

      It sounds mean but helping most of the homeless requires a complete lifestyle change on their part and not just giving them a free place to crash.

      If you’re gonna force hotels to provide space for homeless then it will need to come with strict rules around behavior and hygiene. You don’t want homeless pulling bags and darts through the lobbies.

      Right now the United States of America is basically a remake of the 1972 disaster film, The Poseidon Adventure.

      The country functioned normally for nearly 250 years, but in classic post-modern ideology, the assumption is that the ship of state should be able to sail just as effectively if everything is turned upside down.

      In the 1972 film, most passengers were killed instantly as the ship rolled over, and then in the terrifying hours that followed, the number of survivors dwindled down to only six. The inept leaders on board kept misdirecting passengers to their doom.

      But in the modern remake, the captain of the ship called the “Go-Biden Adventure” believes there won’t be any casualties from turning everything upside down:

      Low prices flipped over for high prices.
      Good jobs for bad jobs.
      Closed borders for open borders.
      Low crime for high crime.
      Normal people for surgically modified freaks.
      “Men” and “women” for “people who menstruate” and “people who do not menstruate.”
      Children protected from predators for exposing children to strip clubs.
      Abundant fossil fuels driving a healthy economy to shortages driving up prices.
      Easy to travel for limited mobility.
      Loan debt being turned into grants.
      Low taxes for high taxes.
      Culture of life for culture of death.
      No homelessness to rampant homelessness.
      Full shelves to bare shelves.
      Good health care to politicized and compromised doctors.
      Capitalism for socialism.
      Freedom for tyranny.
      Strong foreign policy for weakness and vulnerability.
      Truthfulness for falsehoods.
      Reality for parody and fantasy.
      Standardized terminology for new definitions.
      Law and justice for lawlessness and corruption.
      Accountability for out of control recklessness.
      Free speech for censorship and mob lynching.
      Fiscal responsibility for catastrophic future debt.
      Competent government officials for incompetent affirmative action cronies.

      Just flip everything upside down and the ship “Go-Biden Adventure” should improve the cruise experience for the passengers, right?

      Reality, by necessity will eventually prevail. And we are barely a year and a half into this forced cruise ship, flipped upside down, and the water is rising fast in the hull. Survivors inside the doomed vessel have no good options. Go down deeper into the ship and hope you are rescued or find your way to the water, hold your breath, and see if you can make it up to the surface.

      In 1972, Gene Hackman helped six people to find a path to rescue.

      In 2022, the government officials just keep misdirecting passengers aboard the Go-Biden Adventure, to their doom.

      As is most often the case, the original film is much better than the remake.

      Another hilarious part of that Stelter segment.

      Nah, the Bidens “haven’t talked about Hunter”…

      “During a segment on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, Stelter discussed a Joe Biden 2024 run, and the potential impact Hunter Biden under federal investigation might have on his old man’s chances, with guest Michael LaRosa (“Dr.” Jill Biden’s former press secretary), no doubt leading LaRosa to wonder, “Who are you and what did you do with Brian Stelter?”

      225. Journalists are suppose to verify their sources, rather than rely on the opinions of one individual whose opinions are basically gossip.

      The proof is in the pudding, and it is clear the Ukrainians who are fighting are well-armed, and that new weaponry is rapidly getting to the front line and being used effectively.

      It also was a smart move by the Ukrainians to take out ammunition dumps, rather than focus long-range weaponry on individual artillery.

      I stand by my previous comment:

      In California, housing can only work for the homeless if there is a prohibition on the use of drugs. The Democrats will not do this:

      “Take a look at San Francisco’s program to provide permanent supportive housing for the homeless. The city spent $160 million, but by all accounts the program has resulted in crime, death and chaos.

      Of 515 tenants tracked by San Francisco, 25% died, 21% returned to homelessness, 27% are whereabouts unknown, and 25% found stable homes — mostly with friends, family or in subsidized housing. Overall, San Francisco’s homeless population increased by 56% since 2016.

      Compare an alternative approach — the St. Johns Program for Real Change in Sacramento, which has served 30,000 women over the past 25 years. About 75% transitioned into permanent housing and 96% who completed vocational training left with non-subsidized jobs.

      Locally, Solutions for Change has also been extremely successful in serving homeless families throughout North County and beyond. The program has graduated over 1,250 parents and supported 2,500 children to equip, inspire and empower them to break the cycle of dependency and poverty.

      Why the differing outcomes? Both the St. Johns Program and Solutions for Change require sobriety, while the “housing first” approach used in San Francisco and mandated by the state does not. In fact, highly successful programs like Solutions and St. Johns are not eligible for any state funding because they require their clients/tenants to remain sober.

      We need to use every tool available and fund proven programs. But simply providing housing without treating underlying problems like substance abuse and mental illness has not succeeded. The homeless population continues to grow, no matter how much we spend.

As far as a trial does anyone think Trump gets a fair trial with a DC jury?

      NO! That would show the corrupt DOJ and FBI they win and then they can do this to others any time they want, manufacture crimes or threats of crimes to intimidate candidates to not run for office.

      It would be the DUMBEST thing to do. Trump needs to fight back.

      I’m praying Trump announces he runs in 2024 after the midterms. He is the only one that can take on this corruption and win. Once he announces, if they go after him then, it looks more political and will cause a firestorm in this country unlike any seen before.

      If he announces, I expect DeSantis to step aside.

    331. Phil says:


      Agree that Trump should announce AFTER the midterms. Don’t get roped into announcing BEFORE the midterms. It’s what Democrats want. They want the midterms about Trump instead of inflation, immigration, crime. It’s what Democrats are hoping for. Trump has to be smart.

      I also agree that DeSantis will more than likely step aside once Trump does announce (assuming he does).

      Also, agree that once Trump announces it makes it much harder politically for the Biden Justice Dept to try and prosecute him. It would just stink to high heaven. Look very bad. Doesn’t mean they wouldn’t still do it, however. Democrats will do anything they can to stay in power. They’ve shown that over and over and over. It’s what they do and tonight is another prime example of that.

    332. Tgca says:

      We have a crisis rising in Florida with homelessness. FL has the 3rd largest homeless in the US, behind CA and NY.

      Though I commend DeSantis for fighting cultures wars that get him a lot of news attention and raises his star nationally, he has done nothing of substance to address homelessness in FL.

      I would give him a grade no higher than a D, more like an F on this issue.

      It won’t peak before the Nov election but it will peak before 2024.

      This has increased on his watch and started to really take off in 2019.

      I get there’s not enough affordable housing in FL and people are moving here but what is his administration doing to address it? NOTHING!

      In Fort Lauderdale, they’re building like crazy but it’s all condos for newcomers here from the northeast. None of these are affordable for working class here.

      Perhaps DeSantis should take some time out of arguing with Disney and deal with a real emerging crisis in his own state. This is not a federal issue. It’s a state issue. Just like we see in CA.

      We can’t fault Newsom for CA but ignore DeSantis for similar issues emerging in FL.

    333. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      340. Can you name a state or city that has effectively dealt with the homelessness problem? It seems to be a national problem that no state or city has a solution.

    334. Tgca says:


      I agree with you agreeing with me.

      It would be absolutely idiotic for Trump to cower and step aside now. That would send a disastrous message and demoralize the GOP.

      People elected Trump because he’s a fighter, not a coward. There is no one better suited to fight this kind of corruption and garner enormous support behind him than Trump.

      DeSantis can’t do that and does not have the loyalty and following Trump has.

      Really STOOPID idea for Trump to give in because they will then use it as a strategy to go after others as well. Trump has to fight this. He has no alternative.

      It’s been a long hard fight but Trump single-handily destroyed the credibility of both the MSM and Big Tech which will benefit conservatives in the long run…and he has kept over a 90% approval rating with the GOP.

      We need him to destroy the credibility of the DOJ and FBI leadership now and no one will fight like he can to do it. After that, it can be pressured to rebuild with a non-political environment.

      Remember, Trump has been vindicated on almost every issue. DeSantis is a rookie and has no experience to do this or massive following to stand behind him.

      Trump operates in an environment where most are against conservatives. DeSantis is successful because he operates in an environment that is EXTREMELY politically friendly to him. He has NEVER had to deal with the challenges Trump has and I just don’t think he is ready for it either.

    335. NYCmike says:

      #341 – well, under Giuliani and then Bloomberg, the issue was dealt with pretty well, until the Democrats took over again……

    336. Tgca says:


      It doesn’t matter! It’s a local issue. People are not blaming DC for LA or SF homelessness. They are blaming state and local leaders. They have the resources to address it but failed to do so.

      DeSantis is also barking up that tree now. If it continues as is in FL, DeSantis can probably kiss 2024 good bye because he will be beaten over the head with it by GOP competitors in primaries and then in a GE as well.

      I don’t recall you blaming CA homeless issue as a national issue until I brought up how it’s getting worse here in FL.

      If Newsom is to blame for homelessness in CA, then clearly DeSantis is to blame for homelessness in FL.

    337. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      343. Agree, but that was some time ago. Am trying to think of any city or state addressing the issue effectively now?

    338. Tgca says:


      Exactly! You expect local leaders to get involved.

      It bothers me DeSantis has done nothing I’ve seen to address this but he’s out everyday fighting culture wars that get him national coverage.

      Sorry! He’s prioritizing politics over an emerging crisis.

    339. Tgca says:

      Miami has ordinances that prohibit encampments but all that does is push the homelessness to bordering areas where they’re less seen.

      That’s not an effective or long-term solution.

      I see more homeless sleeping at bus stops or other areas than I’ve ever seen before. Dramatic increase since 2019.

    340. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      In California and adjacent states, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that unless there are sufficient shelter beds, the police cannot remove the homeless from the sidewalks. Downtown San Diego has blocks of transient camps throughout it’s area. Several surround city hall. A staff member in the Mayor’s Office told me they send a security officer along with student interns when they go to lunch. It has become a zombie jungle, with the zombies mostly high on drugs.

[cut] While Democrats, Never Trumpers, and far-left activists celebrated the FBI’s raid on the former president’s private residence – a completely unprecedented event – Joe Walsh said that “many GOP voters” told him that the raid inspired such anger in them that they will support Trump despite previously souring on his candidacy.”

      It’s ironic the Biden Justice Department would raid Mar-a-Lago the day before the twelfth anniversary of the death of former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens.

      In 2007, the Bush Justice Department raided Stevens’ house and began a witch-hunt against him that culminated in a fallacious conviction and his narrow loss for reelection to the odious now-former Senator Mark Begich.

      Stevens was very clearly the victim of malevolent prosecution that ended his political career and likely led to the chain of events that resulted in his being on that fateful plane rather than representing his constituents in Washington.

      Democrats got a Magistrate Judge with a shady history of connections to Jeffrey Epstein to sign off on a clearly politically motivated warrant for something that looks completely innocuous–as opposed to, say, Hillary’s compromising national security or what Hunter Biden did.

He says it’s about a January 6th conspiracy case and that the Justice dept has been building it for several months. The ruffling through papers and documents is an effort to find more evidence beyond testimony they have already received from Trump officials. The case they are trying to build is that Trump knew he lost the election and conspired to stay in power through the Jan 6th riot.

      He may be right. Why? Because a mishandling of documents case will never fly politically. That kind of flimsy prosecution would only make Democrats look bad and strengthen Trump. Democrats know that. They aren’t stupid. McCarthy also says that Constitutionally, a simple conviction of mishandling classified documents wouldn’t fly legally to prevent Trump from running again. The Constitution sets the qualifications for running and no statute outside of the Constitution can supersede those qualifications.

      They want him in prison folks….and imagine they will try and get their way given the corruption of the Justice Dept in bringing charges and then the DC jury pool.

On the heels of last night’s raid this is just one more confirmation that the Justice Dept is going full bore after Trump and will charge him with some sort of conspiracy revolving around Jan 6th.

      I think Trump should announce his decision ASAP if he plans to run for POTUS. Don’t wait until after the midterms.

      This will put DOJ in the defensive and there will be a massive call for an Independent Council because how can a current administration prosecute a political opponent in an upcoming election without losing credibility and setting it up for court challenges.

      Trump should put the fear into DOJ folks he is willing to take them on directly.

      He can run on a corrupt gubbermint in addition to the mess Biden and team have created. It will also force Biden folks to determine if he is running or not before they are ready to announce.

      Trump announcing a run now pretty much shuts DeSantis out too because DeSantis would be pressured into supporting Trump now which means he would have to announce before the midterms his support.

      Failure to do so would be disastrous for DeSantis. It would look self-serving if he did not.

      There is risk to this strategy but taking on the DOJ would energize the GOP. It would also be risky for the DOJ. Do they really wish to be defending their behavior to voters for the next 2 years as Dems try to keep the WH.

      Maybe many in DOJ would see the writing on the wall and split if they think Trump has a chance of winning. Would they really want to stick around until 2024 if a Trump win is probable?

      The Russian government is characteristically saying that the explosions resulted from an accident that set off aviation munitions. But informed observers noted that the explosions occurred at different locations on the base, possibly both munitions storage sites, which would be extraordinarily careless, even by Russian military standards.”

      526: I would have no idea. I’m not the FIB. But I have to assume that to get the Justice department and Judge to sign off on it, there has to be some crime. I worry that the crime may be something fairly minor. Unless, it is something substantial, the whole thing looks really bad.

    514. Tgca says:

      527. Paul

      No! It’s pretty easy to get judges to sign off on search warrants according to a number of lawyers. Often they shop around for such searches. It’s a one-sided view and often the judge has no reason to believe the warrant is not justified unless they find out layer like they did in FISA warrant abuses.

      Dershowitz laid this out today in an interview where he noted he is personally not aware in his 60 years of practice where a judge turned down a search warrant that appeared reasonable based on the one-sided explanation.

    515. jason says:

      But I have to assume that to get the Justice department and Judge to sign off on it, there has to be some crime”

      Wrong assumption.

    516. Tgca says:

      According to what’s being reported by numerous sources, the search warrant was based on this classified document act and nothing else even though as POTUS, Trump could’ve have seen declassified anything he wanted.

      Trump has a letter they read tonight that shows he was already cooperating with the National Archives to return documents after review so there was no reason for the raid.

      Clinton had in her possession numerous classified documents and she was never raided and she did not have the authority to classify or declassify documents. …and remember, Comey argued she was negligent but this is not something they would prosecute based on past precedent.

      When CNN, WaPo, Cuomo, and a number of others on the left argue this is overreach and unwarranted, you know you have a problem.

      This was a fishing expedition and a message to try and intimidate Trump but it has backfired.

    517. Tgca says:

      Dershowitz also argues that any other evidence they find might get thrown out by judges if they can show this was an unprecedented prosecutorial misconduct which he believes it is and appears politically motivated. All they have to do is show how similar cases have been treated recently by DOJ.

      Based on previous cases with Clinton as the prime example where just a few years ago the FBI claimed they would not recommend charges because it’s a rarely used prosecution and doubtful they could get a conviction, I would suspect Trump could be on good ground unless it’s a DC jury.

      I think there is now going to be enormous pressure for Garland to now appoint a special prosecutor and recuse himself because he himself has an axe to grind with Trump and they are targeting a potential political opponent in an upcoming election, and potentially trying to influence the mid-terms which is less than 100 days out violating their own precedence to ensure they do not interfere in elections.

      If Trump is investigated or charged, this will hang over the Dems for the next 2 years and energize the GOP like never before as well as turn Indys away from the Dems.

      This can spill into congressional elections as well.

      If tje GOP wins the House, they will most likely impeach Garland and make him ineffective to lead and keep this alive all the way through 2024 with hearings and investigations, including their own J6C.

      It’s going to get real UGLY.

      So are we going to defund/eliminate the judiciary?

      The problem isn’t the FBI. It’s the far left academia that is graduating hundreds of thousands of hard leftists every year, and these are the people that are populating government agencies like the State Dept, CDC, the intelligence community, and even the military leadership and corporate America. Clinton, Obama and Biden will have had 20 years to fill these agencies with leftists.

      You can exaggerate and falsify rationale for a RAID warrant to unsuspecting judges – think FISA
      You can find a left-wing judge who posts anti-Trump messages to approve a RAID warrant
      A RAID warrant does NOT need to have 30+ armed agents with automatic weapons if they’re looking for classified documents not yet returned to the National Archives
      A RAID warrant is NOT necessary if there is already a working process in place to review and return documents, as evidenced by communication with the National Archives
      A RAID is a LAST resort and not a 1st resort.
      A RAID should not be targeted towards conservatives only
      A RAID should not be approved by a DOJ with an axe to grind for losing a SCOTUS seat
      A political RAID should not be done within 100 days of an election

      In the end, Beto falls about 5 or 6 points short in November. He has a ton of money but so does Abbott plus Beto hasn’t made it past 44% or 45% in the polls and that is with full name recognition. Everyone knows him. No great enthusiasm for Abbott in the state, but Beto lost by 2.5% to a not so popular Ted Cruz in a Democratic year with twice the money, media swooning all over him…etc

      Add to all that the fact that Beto will not do as well with Hispanics as he did in 2018 – like I said, Abbott will win comfortably by around 5.

      Wes, it wouldn’t be impossible for Abbott to win by double digits. Just very unlikely IMO. My state has changed a good bit from even ten years ago. You have explosive growth in Austin full of California techies. Bush actually carried Travis County in 2000. Trump lost it by 300,000 votes in 2000. Dallas which used to be a Republican stronghold in the 1970s along with Houston are just demographically waaaay different. If you add up the total vote in Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, Austin and El Paso you come up with a Republican deficit of around 1.1 million votes in 2020 Naturally, that’s what keeps Texas closer. Also populous suburban counties around Dallas – Collin and Denton Counties were carried by Trump with about 52% of the vote. Bush carried them with 65% in 2004.

      All this keeps it closer. Republicans will still win because of the overwhelming support in rural areas and that’s helped out by their gains with Hispanic voters especially in South Texas.

      Abbott will win but it won’t be anything like the wipeouts Bush vs Kerry or Romney vs Obama. Double digits probably aren’t in the cards any longer.

    584. Phil says:

      I could be, Gordon. In 2018 the exits showed Beto carrying the Latino vote against Ted Cruz 65-35. They made up 28% of the total statewide vote. He won’t carry that vote by 30 against Abbott this time. I’m certain of that – maybe 55-45. Anyway, Beto would need to make up that loss by polling better with some other demographic just to get back to his total statewide vote in 2018. I don’t see where that would be.

The majority-Democrat state Board of Elections had originally barred the party from the ballot in July, because of questions that some of the signatures to get the party on the ballot were fraudulent. But the board reversed that decision last week and left it up to a federal judge to decide if the party should be on he ballot, since the deadline to certify a party had already passed.”

      I have a very sick feeling about what the FBI & DOJ are up to with Trump. Put me in the he is indicted by Election Day crowd.

They will use whatever means they have because they can and will get away with anything to take him out. They are going are not going to stop and I think the GOP leadership is fine with it.

      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.

      There is only a list of words that will cause your post to be rejected. Or if you put too many question marks and things like that.

      This is especially true when you post texts from other sources, often one of those words will be in the text and until you remove or change it you cannot post it.

      “President Obama turned a few heads on Fox News Sunday when host Chris Wallace asked him whether Hillary Clinton’s emails—some of which contained information since deemed to be classified—damaged national security. Obama replied, “There’s classified, and then there’s classified.” He went on, “There’s stuff that is really top secret, top secret—and there’s stuff that … you might not want out on the transom … but is basically stuff that you could get in open source.”

      At the end of his presidency, Barack Obama trucked 30 million pages of his administration’s records to Chicago…More than five years after Obama’s presidency ended, the National Archives webpage reveals that zero pages have been digitized & disclosed.”

      A menu, a birth day card, and a cocktail napkin are not classified documents,

      Moreover, as I pointed out to you from Patel, if trump has any classified documents, they were declassified

      So you know you are wrong here and the raid blew up in your face.

      You should have been content with celebrating Biden’s “best week of his presidency.”

      Obama followed the same process as Reagan and others.

      You are wrong as usual, Tina.

    635. Tina says:

      More than five years after Obama’s presidency ended, the National Archives webpage reveals that zero pages have been digitized and disclosed. People can file requests via the Freedom of Information Act (a law Obama helped wreck) to access Obama records, but responses from presidential libraries can be delayed for years, even more than a decade, if the information is classified.

      Delayed more than a decade if classified

    636. Paul says:

      Tina is wrong again as usual.

      Joel Kotkin points out the obvious, the trillions wasted on green energy boondoggles like wind and solar have not had much of an impact on fossil fuel use:

      “Indeed, despite trillions spent on green energy over the past 20 years, the percentage of global power generated by fossil fuels has just barely declined, from 87 to 84 percent, and the bulk of reductions have come not from wind or solar but by substituting natural gas with coal.”

      Senior DOJ officials blast FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago as ‘spectacular failure’: ‘The worst of the bureaucracy in action’

    649. Phil says:

      We finally have some more polling out of Wyoming now that the primary is only 5 days away. Given the prominence of this race I’m surprised we’ve only seen two polls before this and both well over a month old. The University of Wyoming has come out with a new survey taken between July 25th and August 6th so it’s about a week old as far as when it was actually out in the field. Still, fresher than the other two polls. The results:

      Hageman 57
      Cheney 28

      The poll attempted a conscious effort to screen for likely voters and pick up Democrats who will be crossing over.

      Liz is polling around 15% of Republican voters. They are splitting independents. She is getting 98% of crossover Democrats. None of that is particularly surprising.

      The pollster estimated that the poll indicated Cheney may get as many as 20,000 votes statewide from Democrats crossing over to vote for her.

      I was interested in this poll because I read an article yesterday quoting a statistician who looked into Wyoming county by county voter registration records and said if his calculations were correct looking at changes of registrations so far, he could see Cheney riding enough crossovers plus 30% of Republicans to eke out a narrow victory.

      The University of Wyoming poll was taken before the raid on Trump’s home so my guess is that, if anything, this may goose up the number of Republicans who bother to vote and that won’t help Liz.

      As we await AG Merrick Garland and his statement, a senior WH official tells me the Biden WH was not informed this was happening:
      “We have had no notice that he was giving remarks and no briefing on the content of them.”

      There is reporting that he scheduled a meeting at 2:30 but did not discuss 1st with the WH and that he’s been with WH folks discussing what he was going going to say and probably getting his butt chewed out the last 40 minutes for not coordinating with them which is standard procedure so the WH is not caught off guard.

      There’s also speculation he may have been given his talking points by the WH now and could change his intended comments after getting chewed out by the WH.

      1. He personally approved the RAID
      2. He has followed the rule of law…blah blah blah
      3. Biden was not aware of the RAID in advance.
      4. They will be releasing the contents of the warrant, as ordered by the judge but that Trump and his attorneys also had this warrant – suggesting they could release it themselves.
      5. Defends the FBI and DOJ workers integrity and that they’re professional, hard-working…blah blah blah

      He refused to take any questions and said he’s making this statement because there’s significant public interest but otherwise the DOJ only goes thorough courts to address issues.

      He spoke for probably like 7 minutes.

    664. Phil says:

      Ok, folks. Garland answered all the questions I had. Cleared everything up. I’m satisfied.

      Does he think history will be kind to him that he ordered this RAID less than 100 days of a federal election in contradiction to prior precedents?

      Does he think history will be kind to him that he ordered this RAID of a likely presidential opponent of his boss in the 2024 election?

      These facts have come from both Trump’s on-site attorneys. According to one of them, she was shown the warrant from an unreadable distance of 10 feet. A few minutes later, she was given a heavily redacted version she said was useless.
      This is not a “normal case”. The raid on a President’s personal case is as irregular as it gets.
      I say release everything including DOJ discussions and decision making up to the serving of the warrant.

The American military in joint exercises in Finland has learned how utilize Finnish roadways for jet fighters. Finland soon will be acquiring 64 F-35 jets, which will joint its existing F-18s.

      Finland has an 830-mile border with Russia, and can deploy fighter jets along roadways on most
      of this border in a crisis. These fighter jets will be in close proximity to the Russian Northern Fleet base near Murmansk and the St. Petersburg naval facilities.

      It’s hard for me to imagine how anyone can argue that adding Finland and Sweden to NATO was not beneficial.

    743. Tina says:

      Garland attempted to play chicken by moving to have the warrant declassified, probably expecting Trump to flinch. Trump slammed on the accelerator by demanding that all of it be declassified. It will either be a swerve, or a crash.

      Maybe both.

      Trump is a brawler, and as we have seen over the past six years, he doesn’t back down. Garland has proven himself a wimp, which is why he is playing what looks like revenge fantasies from the Department of Justice rather than sitting on the Supreme Court.

    744. JeffP says:

      Okay…so…don’t criticize the DOJ and the FBI cuz we thought Trump was working with Putin again and had nuke docs at MAL stuffed in Melanias bra and pantie drawers.

      And millions of mindless commie libs will believe it.

    745. JeffP says:

      Other than a few higher profile classic liberals speaking out like Naomi Wolf, JFK Jr., Russell Brand, Joe Rogan, etc…that understand the importance of the 1st Amendment and limited Government involvement in our lives. Democrats and their media arm are Commies now…socialists doesn’t quite hit the mark anymore.

    746. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “Trump is a brawler, and as we have seen over the past six years, he doesn’t back down.”

      Agree, Trump is at his best when cornered.

    747. JeffP says:

      The brawler part of Trump I respect. Bringing Bill Clinton’s sexual assault victims to the debate with his wife was a classic.

    748. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca being gay was always a Zzzzzzzzz to me. The destruction of our relationship is unfortunate but permanent.

    749. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      770. Yes, here is a Marxist publication’s denouncement of Sweden as a greedy capitalist country:

      “Whilst Sweden is often portrayed internationally as an egalitarian – even a ‘socialist’ country – the reality is that today it is one of the most unequal countries in the world, as demonstrated in the newly published book, ‘Sweden of the Greedy: how the welfare state became a paradise for the super-rich’. Moreover, as the recent sell-out of the Kurds reveals, the Swedish ruling class are vicious imperialists whose concern for ‘human rights’ is sheer hypocrisy.

      The newly published book, ‘Sweden of the Greedy: how the welfare state became a paradise for the super-rich’, tells the story of how Sweden went from being one of the most equal countries in the world, to one with greater wealth inequality than Nigeria, the Philippines, Haiti and the United States.

      If you’re looking to be convinced about the utter rottenness of Swedish capitalism, this is the book for you. In Sweden, the dollar billionaires have amassed more wealth in relation to GDP than in any other country. Nowhere on the planet are the capitalists as rich relative to the size of the economy as a whole.”

      Notice there is no mention of any suffering poor people. Just that some people have more money than others. Sweden permitted more capitalism and accumulation of wealth, and everyone benefited.

    750. Tina says:

      The goblin seemed weak in his presser yesterday.

      With respect to the nuke doc claim, did the corrupt department of unjustice borrow it from Cn and n, days before?

    751. DW says:


      Its been 11 years now–hard to believe!

      And a special mention this time to MD, who faithfully celebrated Maxwell day for five years before succumbing to the fatal illness of TDS.

      Here again is the all time great–the gold standard of exit rants:

      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.
      Comment by Gary Maxwell — August 12, 2011 @ 7:34 pm

    752. DW says:

      I propose a moment of silence this evening at 7:34 pm, marking the timestamp of the famous rant.

    753. MichiganGuy says:

      Wow. The libs at Newsweek let this be posted on their website. Shocking!

    754. jason says:

      Happy Maxwell Day!

    755. jason says:

      I second the motion for a moment of silence.

    756. Bitterlaw says:

      Happy Maxwell Day!

      There used to be great celebrations here. The USS New Jersey would fire its 16” guns in salute (until they accidentally used live ammunition and took out part of Bala Cynwyd). The favorite marching band of every true Texan (Michigan State) would perform. A parachute team, the Flying Maxwells, would dive from 5,000 feet and deliver aluminum bats as they landed on home plate at Citizens Bank Park. It was glorious.

    757. Phil says:

      Latest leaks out of the Justice Dept. Yes, this is their latest bullsh*t. The raid (I’m sorry. The search) was conducted due to Trump’s possible possession of “sensitive nuclear documents”. Apparently so sensitive that the government waited 18 months to move. Okeeeey. Oh yes, the latest? Trump could now be charged under the Espionage Act which the media is now reminding us carries with it the penalty of death or life in prison. Yes. Let’s give him the chair.

      I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

    758. DW says:

      “would dive from 5,000 feet”

      wasn’t it 30,000 feet? oh wait, that was Polaris.

    759. DW says:

      In the early years of Maxwell Day celebrations I had provided a complete commentary on the rant. Sadly the transcript is now lost.

    760. Bitterlaw says:

      DW – It was brilliant. Tell the FBI it was written by Trump. You will have it in 20 minutes.

      HHR – I made a joke about the FBI. Happy? GFY

    761. Tgca says:


      I pick Bitter! Well, more like a Duck Duck Goose fierce smack in the head and run.

      …and of course my ally and Butt Buddy Jadon

      …and then there’s Tina, even though no one here likes her according to Paul.

    762. Tgca says:

      I think Maxwell made a fair point.

      Many posters have left over the years, too many to recall so we no longer have the variety of input that may make you say, “hey, I didn’t think of that or I don’t fully agree but here’s my take.”

      You can mock him all you want, but his post proves the point and HHR’s heyday is well behind it and there is only a handful of posters left. Maybe HHR is just a reflection of the US.

      I keep waiting for the day to click on the site and find Dave has shut it down.

    763. Tina says:

      Julie Kelly ??
      Holy Moly–tuning in to Whitmer trial. FBI agent handling one of the informants admitted a female FBI informant slept in the same hotel room and same bed as Barry Croft, the informant’s target.

      This was related to a training exercise in Wisconsin hosted by another FBI informant.

    764. Tina says:

      The goblin may want to review the Presidential Records Act.

    765. Tina says:

      Don’t let the facts get in front of a good story.

      Speak about treasonous remarks coming from a general regarding a Commander-in-Chief.

      General Hayden responds:

      Sounds about right,

      in response to presidential historian Beschloss tweet implying Trump should be held to the same standards as the Rosenberg traitors because it’s being reported he held nuclear secret documents at MAL.

      Rosenbergs were convicted for giving U.S. nuclear secrets to Moscow, and were executed June 1953

    767. Cash Cow TM says:

      And so, it begins…


      “Monkeys poisoned and attacked over pox fears…”

      They came after the monkeys,
      and I said nothing.
      Then they came after the cows…

    768. Wes says:

      Tg, Gary Maxwell was known for being one of the most sanctimonious posters willing to engage in vicious attacks over disagreements. He was personally guilty of the very things he accused others of in that poat. He just couldn’t be king of the mountain here and ran off like a scalded dog because of that.

      He wasn’t trying to make some kind of salient point but was being his normal smarmy, egotistical self in that post. Others may have done what Maxwell claimed, but he wasn’t in any pure in that regard and came across as a self-absorbed hypocrite in his rant.

      He wouldn’t have been a solution to but an aggravating factor in the problem he outlines had he stayed. That’s why we routinely make fun of him for his post. We could have accepted a post with similar content from DW because he’s a respected poster who avoids the kind of infighting Maxwell raved about and wouldn’t have come across as a smarmy egotist. Maxwell though was not a respected contributor nor one whose criticism of the site resonated with us because of his own contributions to the very problem he sanctimoniously cited.

    769. DW says:

      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.

      8) Trump’s pet cat knows something, but wouldn’t talk!

      9) Some suspicious messages were found on Trump’s answering machine. His medical prescription was ready for pickup, and another message was left by someone who may have had a Russian accent! Something about a vehicle warrantee.

      10) Loose change was found under a sofa cushion, indicating trump was involved in some sort of corrupt money scheme.

    770. DW says:

      Have to give credit to Maxwell for what I believe is the best line:

      “Perhaps aluminum bats is the correct answer to some as yet unasked trivia question.”

      The sort of line that really makes one contemplate the meaning of life.

    771. DW says:


      FBI Director confirms one more key finding.

      11) ALL of the mattress tags throughout the house had been illegally REMOVED!

      Arrest warrant will come later today.

    772. Tina says:

      On Friday morning President Trump responded to the latest Washington Post conspiracy on Truth Social.

      President Donald Trump: Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two Impeachments were a Hoax, the Mueller investigation was a Hoax, and much more. Same sleazy people involved. Why wouldn’t the FBI allow the inspection of areas at Mar-a-Lago with our lawyer’s, or others, present. Made them wait outside in the heat, wouldn’t let them get even close – said “ABSOLUTELY NOT.” Planting information anyone? Reminds me of a Christofer Steele Dossier!

    773. Bitterlaw says:

      Many posters have elected to leave. I also appreciated the different viewpoints – especially the ones I did not agree with. Now, anybody who disagrees with the prevailing viewpoint is deemed a troll, RINO, or suffering from TDS. Of course, there are some trolls, RINOs, and those suffering from TDS but not all. Somehow, Trump became a litmus test.

      I’m here until the site shuts down. If Trump runs in 2024, I hope he wins. If he loses,we’ll Discuss why then. If he chooses not to run in 2024, I hope it is DeSantis.

    774. Tom says:

      I heard that Elon Musk has offered to buy the FBI, but hasn’t heard back from the Clintons whether or not they want to sell.

    775. DW says:

      Tom, that was good.

    776. Tgca says:



      I don’t disagree some posters can rub folks the wrong way. Not everyone is easy-going, respected, and well-like the two of us.

      I just hate to see folks leave and I find myself reminiscing about the good old days sometimes.

      I did enjoy reading and interacting with various folks.

      But nothing lasts forever.

    777. Country Dick Montana says:

      Hey guys been a while. Took a little break from the news and the inter webs. Lots of fishing and gardening.

      Anything interesting in the news lately?

    778. Tgca says:

      Florida bans Medicaid from covering gender-affirming treatments


      People should not get cosmetic surgery and treatment for things that make them FEEL better about themselves and provide them with better mental health at the cost of taxpayers unless everyone is entitled to the same level of analogous treatment at the cost of taxpayers.

      If that’s the case, then liposuction, facelifts, body sculpting, skin reconditioning, breast augmentation, penile enhancements, cosmetic dentistry, … should all be covered because it goes to also making people FEEL better about themselves and contributes to better mental health.

      What’s the difference of a woman who wants to have gender reassignment surgery so they can have the male body they desire and the obese person that wants liposuction and body sculpting to get the body they desire. Both can result in mental health issues of not addressed. Both can lead to depression and discomfort of being who they truly FEEL they should be.

    779. Tgca says:


      Yes! Liz Cheney has bounced back and is slated to keep her congressional seat after showing all she has the best interests of the US at heart…thanks to her Daddy’s political ad showing us all how BRAVE she is.

      It’s reported besides severe burns, she suffered significant pulmonary damage and is on breathing machines but is brain dead.

    782. Tina says:

      Ned Ryun

      “We have a saying in my office. Don’t let the facts get in the way of a good story.” So said FBI agent Henrik Impola to one of the FBI informants working the FBI-inspired, organized & executed scheme to “kidnap” and “assassinate”

    783. Bitterlaw says:

      It is sad that Heche spiraled down to such a low place and substance abuse. Fortunately, I do not think she injured anybody else in the accident.

    784. Tina says:

      Election Wizard ??
      Trump stole the nuclear material sometime after he wrested the steering wheel from the secret service, peed on Russian prostitutes, called the vets “suckers and losers,” and suggested drinking bleach. If you doubt this, you are a domestic extremist and belong on an FBI watchlist.

    785. Tgca says:

      Gays NOW pass Gay Monkey Pox on to dogs. 1st case shows up.

      Two gay men with Monkey Pox passed it along to their dog who sleeps in their bed. Poor dog has also tested for anal lesions.

      Tests show the genetic makeup of the virus in the dog is a duplicate of their strain of the Gay-transmitted disease the two men have.

      I guess these two gay men in a relationship are MONOGAMISH instead of monogamous.

    786. Tgca says:

      In other news, the Gay Monkey Pox cases are still exploding.

      Increase from 10,400 to 10,800 yesterday, the lowest daily increase in weeks after a UUUUGE increase the day before. Roughly 4% increase in one day expansion below the normal 6% to 7% daily average the last couple of weeks.

      NY and CA making up nearly 40% of US cases.

      But those factors weren’t in play in July when his approval jumped from 36-45 in just over 3-4 polling days. And has stayed there,nor have other polls moved that radically toward Biden.

      Paul … you should have watched Tucker tonight. Tulsi Gabbard hosted and could have taught you a lot about civil liberties. I can dumb it down to you later if you need the help after watching. I know it might be a little too much for your level of intelligence.

    840. Tina says:

      There is also a 1987 Supreme Court decision that states that the power to classify or declassify lies with the president.

      The official documents governing classification and declassification stem from executive orders. But even these executive orders aren’t necessarily binding on the president. The president is not “obliged to follow any procedures other than those that he himself has prescribed,” Aftergood said. “And he can change those.”

      The majority ruling in the 1988 Supreme Court case Department of Navy vs. Egan — which addressed the legal recourse of a Navy employee who had been denied a security clearance — addresses this line of authority.

      “The President, after all, is the ‘Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States’” according to Article II of the Constitution, the court’s majority wrote. “His authority to classify and control access to information bearing on national security … flows primarily from this constitutional investment of power in the President, and exists quite apart from any explicit congressional grant.”

    841. JeffP says:

      Paul…you a Pete Seeger fan? He was a commie just like you!

    842. Tina says:

      Trump had a standing order which means any documents taken with him to his “residence” were declassified.

      He (a president) can at will classify or declassify.

    843. Tina says:

      “Officials said it is likely the FBI will seek to find any officials or witnesses who knew or can confirm there was a “standing order” as described by the Trump statement. But in the end, officials said the president’s declassification powers were sweeping and likely would be viewed as such by the courts.”

      Doesn’t matter whether he had a process or not.

    844. JeffP says:

      Thanks for sharing that Just The News link Tina.

      It would interesting if the DOJ takes these charges to DC grand jury for indictment. At some point if Trump is found guilty by a DC Jury. it would end up before SCOTUS. . Pretty sure that’s a slam dunk win for DJT.

      It’s kinda of obvious they were fishing for anything to use for indictments. I kind of wonder is this Nuke Top Secret and Classification BS is a CYA move because the NY State AG and January 6th didn’t find their Magic bullet…and are left holding the bag.

    845. Tina says:

      And pretty much the Eos by bush and Obama don’t even apply to the president.

      I don’t see how the goblin gets past the constitution and that Supreme Court case.

      In this case, it appears that trump had a process for declassification, but one is not even “required”.

    846. Tina says:

      This appears to be a fishing expedition.

      A poorly crafted warranted and the gubment on the last page misspelled MAL.

      Seems like a 4th amendment violation as the warrant is not specific, contrary to the goblins presser.

    847. Tina says:

      It makes no sense here unless they were on an illegal fishing expedition (j6).

      The fib and archives were aware of the documents. Were given access to the storage area and told trump to put a padlock on it. The pad.oak would have been one provided by gsa.

    848. NYCmike says:

Conservative Roy Moore had won the Senate primary. Democrats then set out to destroy his candidacy.

    878. jason says:

      Roy Moore is a scumbag who doesn’t believe in the US Constitution and thus should not be in any elected office. Being thrown out twice of the Alabama SC for failing to abide to laws he swore to uphold should be evidence enough he is not fit for the Senate or anything else.

      However, I am on record here saying that 40 year old uncorroborated allegations concocted by the Washington Post should not derail anyone’s political career. The sexual misconduct allegations against Moore always stunk to high heaven to me.

    884. Tgca says:


      …and Obama did
      …and Hilary did

      Keep digging Paul

      Trump called Garland’s bluff and forced him into a press conference to try and justify his acts which only got more criticism and news as not making sense and opened more questions into this rarely invoked law that the FBI recently claimed in 2016 was not something they would normally prosecute under given this type if situation. So why try to use it now?

      Garland was also ordered by the judge to release the warrant and document list. He will spend at least the next year under investigation and there is real risk of an independent counsel to look into this because he can’t be trusted, as well as his impeachment.

      This has backfired massively on Garland.

      Trump has duped these guys again into the direction he wishes to take this.

      Garland’s name will now be forever known as the AG that tried to stop a prior president from running against his boss. 1st time in US history.

      Too late! The dye is cast. Garland got duped.

      See what happens when you follow the direction of a corrupt WH and do their bidding instead of following your ethics? You lose your credibility. The WH will throw AG under the bus when the time comes.

    885. Tina says:

      They even asked for notes and photos.

      The maximum bet on any race at Predictit is $800. Of course you can have multiple accts and bet $800 from each one.

      Right now she is at 20 to 1 so you could make a coll $16000 if she wins.

      This didn’t age well.

      MSNBC folks live in a other universe.

      They’re arguing Garland bested Trump. Garland got out in front of the story and put Trump on defense. Garland sound bites will play over and over and people will see he has nothing to hide.

      Ummm…now let’s talk reality.

      Is that why Garland had to break protocol, do a presser, and be forced by a judge to release the warrant, and now numerous pundits are questioning why they are pursuing this strategy and also questioning the legitimacy of the RAID given the content used for the warrant which most think is absurd given the FBI’s actions in 2016 with top secret documents Clinton had improperly secured and had in her possession.

      ALL DOCUMENTS? What happened to seeking sensitive top secret materials?

      Of vital national security and risk of documents being destroyed? Is that why they waited days after getting the warrant to complete their RAID because it was so vital they act NOW.

      The more people find out, the more credibility DOJ is facing.

      Garland did not help his case getting up and saying nothing.

      But like the Russia Hoax and hookers peeing on Trump, MSNBC is also duped into believing:

      This it it!
      We finally got him!

    896. Phil says:

      The war gaming of a Chinese invasion of Taiwan scares the hell out of me. US losses would be catastrophic. Sunk US aircraft carriers, loss of half our Pacific surface fleet, loss of 900 fighters. We would eventually prevail in the end according to the results of war gaming scenarios, but Taiwan would be in ruins.

      Scary as hell.

      China is an actual threat to the US. They can actually walk the walk. I pray they aren’t tempted by the Biden, Milley, woke military window to actually move on Taiwan in the next two years. It has to be tempting to them. Better to move now than risk facing a Trump or DeSantis along with a new joint chiefs of staff.

    897. Tgca says:


      Agreed on Moore decision.

      At least he can prove he really suffered damages as opposed to the parents in the Alex Jones case.

    898. jason says:

      loss of 900 fighters”

      Since we have about 1300 fighters that will put quite a dent in the total.

    899. jason says:

      At least he can prove he really suffered damages as opposed to the parents in the Alex Jones case.”

      Yep, figure at least 16 years in the Senate, that is worth some dough.

    900. jason says:

      Axelrod has a new theory for Cheney loss.

      “She cannot campaign due to threats against her”


      She can’t campaign because she is afraid of facing the voters she sold out.

    901. Tgca says:

      928. Phil

      What you miss is that our tranny military has never really been tested in combat, except for the few that served admirably in the Revolutionary War but that was over 200 years ago.

      Do you really think a bunch of 5’5 130 pound Asian men are going to face down our screaming raging purple-haired 250 pound smelly unkempt trannies?

      My guess is China will run the other way rather than deal with these FREAKS. I don’t blame them. Who wants some smelly fat lard with a yeast infection plopping on them?

      Even a MANLY MAN like me gets all grossed out when I see today’s trannies.

    902. Tina says:

      I wonder how many in the leadership of the tranny military are Ccp spies?

    903. Tgca says:

      Another fine point on the Trump RAID that the DOJ fails to note. The interview below is from the guy in the know and sheds light on the process of declassifying and securing such documents.

      The GSA are the folks who packed up and moved the documents sent to MAL. They have admitted they did this. It was not like Trump was overseeing the packing of the boxes himself.

      GSA also admitted they erroneously sent some boxes to MAL and some were returned in early 2022.

      Trump issued a number of blanket declassifications as we’re seeing from reports and copies of memos demonstrating this so the BS that he STOLE secure documents is absurd.

    904. Tgca says:

      I’m wondering if this is part of the motivation of DOJ to go after Trump after complaint from NARA in Feb 2022. Concern he would destroy documents.

      Clearly the reason they RUSHED to RAID Trump 6 months later, because it was of utmost national security.

      …but he illegally tore up documents while he was POTUS. It’s gubbermint property.

      But so did Nancy Pelosi!

      STOP with the whataboutism! What Nancy did was different.

      Members of Trump’s admin also did not preserve their social media messages and draft tweets!

      Isn’t that exactly what Hilary did? Destroy gubbermint messages?

      STOP with the whataboutism! What Clinton did was different.

      NARA informs the Justice Department that some of the documents retrieved from Mar-a-Lago included classified material. NARA also tells the department that, despite being warned it was illegal, Trump tore up documents while he was president, and that senior officials in the Trump administration did not properly preserve their social media messages, draft tweets and deleted tweets.

    905. Tgca says:


      I saw that last night.

      It’ll be interesting to see if this pans out.

      It would be incredibly STOOPID of the FBI to allow these agents to be in on the Trump RAID if this is true.

      …unless DOJ decides to get Biden to fire Durham.

      We shall see.

    906. Tgca says:

      This is INCREDIBLE video of a plane landing. Never seen anything like this before.

    907. Tina says:

      Not releasing the affidavit is stupid too. Maybe even more so. Since There are fib agents that lied to the fisa court to get warrants on the Russian hoax.

    908. JeffP says:

      Ned Ryan nails it…why this craziness against DJT and any other threat will continue until there are consequences.

    909. Phil says:

      Since we have 1300 fighters that will put quite a dent.

      You aren’t kidding. The 900 number was a huge shock to me. The sinking of US aircraft carriers was sobering enough as was losing half of our Pacific surface ships…but the loss of aircraft carriers doesn’t surprise me given the Chinese concentration and efforts at technology to take them out. Aircraft carriers are our central part of the US Navy but now are very vulnerable targets. Plus lose just one of those and that’s 60 fighters right there.

      At any rate, our military would not be in very good shape upon completion of hostilities….and that’s a huge understatement.

      As I say, this scares me. God help us if the Chinese make the decision to go.

    910. Tom says:

      Regarding China’s military capability, while it would appear to be formidable, it has never been tested in combat. The last time they tried (albeit, it was over 40 years ago) the North Vietnamese kicked their butts. I also noted with interest that several Russian generals were killed early in the Ukraine invasion because they were forced to use cell phones to communicate (which allowed the Ukrainians to home in on the cell signal) because the radios the Chinese provided were garbage.

      The Chinese command and control structure is extremely centralized with individual commanders and front line troops unable to make independent decisions. This ability is a core strength of US forces.

      Finally, so much of the technology they use was stolen from us, so we are well prepared to counter this.

      While they won’t be push overs, I don’t believe they will prove to be as capable as they might appear.

    911. Paul says:

      Tgca: Can you show me where Obama lugged off with boxes of documents as Trump did? Nope, you can’t.

    912. Tina says:

      “NARA moved approximately 30 million pages of unclassified records to a NARA facility in the Chicago area where they are maintained exclusively by NARA.”

      So he took them regardless of classification status.

    913. Paul says:

      JeffP: What abuse of power? Name how the search was an overreach. You can’t. You got nothing, buddy.

    914. Tina says:

      Read what you just posted. They remain in NARA possession in Chicago. Trump could have made the same arrangement with NARA setting up a warehouse in Florida to safeguard everything until Trump’s Presidential Library. But he didn’t. He broke the law.

    916. Tina says:

      Yeah, a year after he took them,

    917. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Living about 10 miles from the border, this is a cause for some concern:

      “SAN DIEGO (Border Report) — The Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG) sent a warning threatening mass violence against anyone roaming the streets this weekend in cities throughout Northern Baja California.

      The message in Spanish read: “Be warned. As of Friday at 10 p.m. through Sunday at 3 a.m. we’re going to create mass chaos so the (expletive) government frees our people. We’re the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, we don’t want to hurt good people but it’s best they don’t go outside, we’re going to attack anyone we see on the streets on these days.”

      By 9 p.m. on Friday, more than a dozen vehicles had been set on fire at key intersections around Tijuana and on the highway leading to the beach community of Rosarito to the south.

      Arrest of cartel leaders leads to shootouts, burning of vehicles in 2 Mexican states
      One of the cars burnt was parked at the city’s stadium as a soccer game was going on.

      Many businesses and restaurants throughout Tijuana shut down and streets were noticeably empty and devoid of any traffic.”

      Walt and I had a discussion on whether or not native Americans had and used horses before Columbus. Went online to find definitive answer and discover there is no definitive answer. Experts say yes they did and other experts say they did not.

      Trump lugged off with nothing. Like every POTUS that leaves the WH, GSA coordinates with WH staff to ensure the moving occurs promptly.

      You think Trump drove away with a U-haul truck he packed? Really?

    925. Paul says:

      957: Clearly Trump took many boxes off to Florida without going through the normal procedure. Some extremely top secret.

      If you can find that Obama did anything like that, you are welcome to shoot him if you’d like.

    926. Paul says:

      The Trump lackey at the GSA (Emily Murphy) may be in trouble as well. If you remember she was the one who thought she could stop the transition process for the new administration.

    927. Paul says:

      – The video appears to be a textbook example of a misjudged visual approach. The goal is to descend on a 3 degree glidepath for an aiming point 1000 ft past the threshold of usable runway. All instrument approaches that provide a glide slope or glide path (ILS or RNAV LPV) provide vertical navigation usually, but not always, set to 3 degrees. If an approach is being flown visually, a pilot simply has to “eyeball” an approach. We do it all of the time.

      In this video, the aircraft appears to have approached the runway at a shallower angle. The pilot flying may have gotten slow and that led to an approach that came up short of the aim point on the runway. It’s also possible the runway isn’t very long and the pilot flying wanted to use as much runway for rollout as possible. Maybe the reversers were deferred (not usable)?

      Again, my guess is the pilot flying misjudged the approach because, had there been approach lights leading to the runway, the landing gear would’ve plowed through it.

    929. Tgca says:


      Big deal! Even if it’s true he took them, purposely avoiding procedure, it’s doesn’t warrant a RAID. But he didn’t! The GSA admitted to shipping the wrong boxes and when it was brought to his attention, he returned them.

      Remember, Trump can unilaterally declassify ANY document as POTUS. He needed no one’s approval and they have a memo that he signed declassifying documents just before he left office. Tjat is irrevocable!

      Clinton had no power to declassify yet she not only kept top secret info in her house against the rules, she destroyed documents under subpoena and was not prosecuted. Where was her RAID?

      You’re reaching because you have TDS!

      Hey Paul

      Remember, Obama team broke the law when they went around official communication systems. What were they trying to hide that they need to evade the official gubbermint communication systems? You don’t do that unless you’re trying to hide something.

      Also, the Archivist at NARA in charge of digitizing the Obama records claimed tens of thousands of key records were missing when Obama left office. What happened to them? This was reported upon years ago.

      Here’s just one link to those stories. You remember this now or you going to claim you never heard about this?

    941. Paul says:

      Tgca, you are a gullible fool because you believe that Trump went through proper channels when he clearly did not.

      “Wyoming GOP Rep. Liz Cheney’s husband is a partner at the law firm now representing Hunter Biden.

      Philip Perry has worked at Latham & Watkins since 2007, and focuses on white collar cases, commercial and Supreme Court litigation, according to his company biography.

      Another Latham partner, Chris Clark, has been representing Hunter Biden since December 2020 — but Cheney’s husband’s involvement at the firm had not been previously known.

      Latham is a Democratic powerhouse, with company attorneys and other employees donating more than half a million dollars to President Biden’s 2020 campaign, Federal Election Commission records show. Clark himself ponied up $3,800.

      Clark’s work for the first son is prominently displayed on his company profile, which notes his representation of Hunter in a “grand jury investigation regarding tax issues.”

      The firm’s close ties to the Democratic party have come under scrutiny in the past.”

    949. Wobbles says:

      The Al Franken endorsement should seal the deal for Cheney.

    950. Phil says:

      Quite the opposite, bitter.

      China is actually a direct threat to America and we have no choice but to stand up to us. They are a real threat.

    951. Bitterlaw says:

      Russia is also a direct threat to the US, Phil. You refuse to see it. China is only a naval threat in waters reachable by the Pacific. Russia is a naval threat in the Pacific, Atlantic, Black Sea, Baltic and Mediterranean.

      I honestly don’t believe you would support a US military response to a Chinese attack on Taiwan. I just don’t.

      “The truly venerable Ford F-150 pick-up truck, America’s best selling vehicle, stands to become priced far too high for most Americans to afford.

      According to a report today in the New York Times Business section, the new plug-in electric version of the F-150, the Ford F-150 Lightning, will carry a sticker price ranging from about $47,000 to $97,000 – and may have a delivery waiting period of three years.

      Today’s cash price for a gasoline powered 2022 Ford F-150-XL is $33,315, while the Lightning F-150 XLT is listed at $53,000.”

      The leftists will respond to the high cost if electric vehicles by saying people shouldn’t own motor vehicles anways, and that if they cannot afford an electric vehicle, they should bike, walk or take transit when they travel.

    953. jason says:

      Yep, hard to see how you can see China as a threat but not Russia, which is actually currently engaged in a war of expansion that is a direct threat to all of the former Soviet republics, Europe, US and NATO.

    954. DW says:

      “Today’s cash price for a gasoline powered 2022 Ford F-150-XL is $33,315″

      True, but that is the very basic base model, single cab. The most popular version is the four-door crew cab that comfortably seats five passengers, and has the 5’6” bed and a tow package. That’s the one that people want. And that one starts at around $46,000.

    955. JeffP says:

      I certainly get the vibe a major war or expanded war in Europe is on the horizon. The embargoes are hurting the EU more than Russia apparently. The Russia GDP is decent and all the dire predictions were wrong yet again. if accurate…well like the woke Pravda in the US media maybe they redefined GDP on the fly.
      China has made great end roads in the EU pushing the CCP long term plan.

      Brainwashed people like Paul don’t even understand the difference between a Constitutional Republic and straight Democracy and why its imperative to protect our citizens.

      We took our five children in their teens on an Anti-Federalist vacation in Virginia for this very reason. Monroe, Henry, Mason…here is a little glimpse.

      They believed the Constitution needed a Bill of Rights.
      They believed the Constitution created a presidency so powerful that it would become a monarchy.
      They believed the Constitution provided insufficient rights in the courts (e.g., no guarantee of juries in civil cases, nor that criminal case juries be local) and would create an out-of-control judiciary.
      They believed that the national government would be too far away from the people and thus unresponsive to the needs of localities.
      They believed the Constitution would abrogate, at least in part, the power of the states.

      Right. And he doesn’t “monitor” them either.

      Over the years, Dave has banned some people like Dond-ero. You can’t type their names in your posts. He has a list of words that for some reason or other will not go through.

      Anyone who has paid an ounce of attention over the past six years knows Trump is going down. They won’t stop. Four years of a hoax Russian collusion investigation costing millions and smearing a sitting President, two joke impeachments, raiding his residence over trumped up BS…all unprecedented. But they’d never indict him. Right? What’s the over and under on when Trump will be indicted and frog marched out in cuffs. Won’t happen? They wouldn’t go that far? Really? Anyone that naive? Six years ago you wouldn’t have thought they’d go this far with any of what has transpired. How’d that work out?

      It’s all why I don’t pay attention to Biden vs Trump polls. Biden isn’t running again and Trump will be in jail.

      They won’t stop. The elitists wet dream of Trump behind bars is something they have been working at for six years. Now, what’s it going to be? Violation of The Espionage Act, Obstruction of Justice as is the latest this morning? Meanwhile, Hunter Biden, Hillary Clinton and our corrupt institutions are laughing their asses off.

      Damm, I guess the game IS up.

      Look, it was bound to happen. With all the experience Neville Allen has with magazines and video games we had to expect that someone like him with a lot of time on his hands and bunkered in a gated community with unlimited resources would eventually discover the true purpose of the Russian Fleet Movement filter.

      However, I still have faith that the higher courts will see this as an overreach of power and throw these cases out, especially if the same FBI who claimed they dint prosecute these types of acts now decides they will prosecute ONLY Trump.

      Trump will announce he is running….and then will be indicted well before the start of the primaries. Over what? The Biden Justice Dept will pick one trumped up charge. Espionage Act, obstruction of Justice, a whole host of Jan 6th related “crimes”. DC juries guarantee a conviction. Then there are the leftist hack DAs in NYC and the one in Fulton County, Georgia who each have their own dirty work to do. Business improprieties in NY (BS) illegally trying to influence the election results in Georgia (more BS) I’m not sure their empaneled juries in NYC or Atlanta give Trump much more of a chance of acquittal than a jury in DC.

      At any rate, indictment followed by conviction is how this plays out. The DC establishment can’t afford to allow Trump to get back into the WH or Trump is going scorched earth on them once in power and they know it. Trump absolutely can’t be allowed back in the WH……and he can’t be on the ballot if he is in prison.

      The corrupt elites will get him charged and convicted. Too bad for him his name isn’t Hillary or Hunter. He’s a dead duck. The deck is stacked.
