    1. Phil says:

      With the libertarian candidate this one may head into a runoff.

    2. jason says:

      Puhhhlleeeze, no runoffs.

    3. jason says:

      jason,

      I don’t understand why you can’t admit the FBI has gone way too far, and there needs to be some changes made, some of which CDM already stated above.”

      Humongous gargantuan goal post moving alert!

      Everyone agrees the FBI has been politicized and changes should be made to depoliticize it.

      I am glad we put the idiotic “defund” and “disband” horsecrap to rest.

      Now we can move on.

    4. Tina says:

      They have been talking about “changing the fib” since 2017.

      If they withhold money from it, you can change it quickly. This means don’t authorize $500 million budget increase so that wrong Wray can take the gubment plan to his vacation hot spot.

      Also, you must fire people.

      Finally, get the fib out of,counterintelligence. This can be done by executive order.

    5. jason says:

      Let me change things a little around for NYC.

      I don’t understand why you can’t admit the FBI has important and essential law enforcement attributions and that probably 95%+ of its 35,000 workforce is not involved in the politicized actions we are condemning and are in fact engaged in other law enforcement activities.

    6. Phil says:

      It’s getting harder and harder for me seeing this Fetterman character actually getting elected to the Senate. In most states, including mine, he’d be laughed out of the state.

      I believe that taxes are too high and all levels of government are too big.

      I believe that Deep State is a bs conspiracy theory based on the absurd notion that Federal employees are motivated by nefarious purposes rather than the benefits and generous number of vacation days. If there really is a Deep State, they suck at it because people talk about Deep State.

      I believe that most people are good most of the time. Until they are stuck in traffic.

      I believe that the military should be powerful enough to make other nations back the F off. If they don’t back the F off, make them regret it.

      Governments should be big enough to prevent anarchy but limited enough to prevent tyranny.

      I don’t care if you believe in God, Allah, Buddha, Vishnu, or any other faith or no faith as long as you don’t expect me to believe it, too.

      Soccer is not a sport.

      Love who you want. Adults can use their parts any way they want with other consenting adults. Just don’t think anybody else wants to see it in public.

      I believe in the death penalty. Spare no expense on the defense of those accused of death penalty offenses then execute the guilty.

      I think abortion is appalling. I thought it should be decided at the state level.

      I believe law abiding people should own as many guns as they want. I do not want to own a gun.

      I believe America is the greatest nation on Earth. I appreciate the positive and negative things about our history. CRT is garbage.

      Any other issues, CDM?

    8. Phil says:

      Damn, bitter, with the exception of parts of your analysis on the deep state I agree with about everything on your list. Makes me wonder why we are fight so much.

    9. NYCmike says:

      “I don’t understand why you can’t admit the FBI has important and essential law enforcement attributions …”

      -When did I ever question that the FBI has an important job?

      That is the crux of the matter! Their job is too important to allow 5% (??) of the people to ruin it for the rest of the agents, and for the American people.

      That said, how about the FBI stop actually stop those trafficking crimes before they happen……here’s a suggestion – the FBI shouldn’t concern itself with publicly-available school board meetings……work on the crimes that perps try to hide, not those held on a ZOOM chat!

    10. Bitterlaw says:

      Makes me wonder why we are fight so much.

      Because you are still wrong on a few things. But you have made progress.

    11. Wes says:

      I know what you mean about religious faiths, Bitter. I’ve had an Evangelical try everything from threatening me with Hell to telling me we literally can know nothing if the Bible isn’t true to convert me back to Christianity for weeks now.

      I keep telling him I’ve heard it all before and read the Bible in multiple forms a host of times but remain unconvinced, yet he still persists. It’s not as if I’m giving him even the faintest glimmer of hope I’ll agree with him. He just can’t grasp the fact that I’m no Christian and have no interest in the religion beyond the same kind of esoteric study I give to all religious faiths.

    12. Bitterlaw says:

      Stay strong, Wes. I can’t prove if there is Heaven or not. But if there is, I don’t need you grabbing my spot.

    13. Wes says:

      I’m good on that, Bitter. I’d rather go to the Buddhist Nirvana than the Christian Heaven if (a) there were an afterlife and (b) I believed in it.

    14. Wes says:

      I just had some calamari. Damn, that stuff was good.

    15. jason says:

      Good stuff, but a little late, so I am just munching on a ham and swiss cheese sandwich with a Troegs Perpetual IPA.

    16. Country Dick Montana says:

      Well Bitter, like Phil we agree on most issues. I am probably for a much much leaner Federal Government that you are. States certainly can choose to limit anarchy and I have laid out my vision of how federal laws can be enforced by them.

      I especially like the idea that our military should exist only to kick our adversaries butts.

      They so called “Deep State” is where we will disagree. Many federal workers join the government out of idealism, especially young college grads with no marketable degree. They then realize how good the benefits are, especially the one where you can’t get fired. Add to that it is a bureaucracy and bureaucracies exist only to perpetuate themselves. So who do they support? The party that supports them and allows the unrestrained growth. When threatened there will be a small minority that will use the power of the government to squash that threat through any means. And while the majority may not be active participants in that activity, they approve of it.

      As I have said before, the issue with the FBI is not just the bad ones, even more culpable are the good ones who know what is going on and where the bodies are buried but won’t speak up for fear of losing their cushy jobs.

    17. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      jason & BL:
      We’ve been told that the Susquehanna Poll of PA is the gold standard. Well, here is a new one showing Fetterman +5 in the Senate race. There is no information on the Governor’s race. The PID is D+1.
      Here are some data points:
      1) Oz +10 with Independents
      2) OZ minus 19 in favorability. Fetterman is +5.
      3) 13% of Republicans would vote for Fetterman. 9% of Democrats for Oz.
      There are a lot of additional data in the poll which you would understand.

      https://www.realclearpolitics.com/docs/2022/Topline-PAStatewide-Aug2022.pdf

    18. Country Dick Montana says:

      Wes- the Buddhist definition of Nirvana is basically “non existence”

      Cicero stated that death was not to be feared as we would end up in a happier place (Heaven or some other afterlife) or not unhappy (non existence)

    19. Wes says:

      I’m aware, CDM.

      Nirvana is the final cycle of the soul in Buddhist theology, wherein the soul has completed all its reincarnations and now will enter into the final blissful state of nonexistence.

      The idea that the soul’s most blissful state is nonexistence is far more interesting to me than hanging out with a deity and some angels in a nebulous part of the universe.

      Of course I don’t subscribe to any of it, but if I had my pick between Nirvana and Heaven I’d go with Nirvana every time.

    20. Bitterlaw says:

      I don’t know if Fetterman is low on funds (doubtful) but I saw 4 Oz ads for every Fetterman ad last night. I can’t remember seeing that kind of ratio in favor of the GOP Senate candidate since I started living in PA in 1986.

      Fetterman is staying with the Oz is a wealthy carpetbagger theme.

      Oz is blasting Fetterman on crime, inflation and being a radical leftist. His ads show Biden, AOC and Pelosi and say Fetterman is to the left of them.

    21. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      “Nearly 60% of Republicans want to nominate Donald Trump for president in 2024 and believe he deserves reelection, according to a recently published USA Today/Ipsos poll.

      That’s the inverse of the outlook from the Democratic Party, where 56% of respondents said they are ready to move on from President Joe Biden and believe he shouldn’t run again in 2024.”

    22. Phil says:

      The first Beto ads are up here in Texas. Interestingly, they are almost all focusing on abortion. That’s a bit puzzling to me. I don’t think that’s particularly helpful in his trying to hold on to the Hispanic population. On the other hand, what’s else is he going to push? His “hell yes we’re going to get yourAR-15s” rhetoric that’s out there from his presidential campaign?

    23. jason says:

      I think the favorability of Oz and Fetterman will change.

      Fetterman was an obscure small town mayor who became LG, but you hardly heard about him. His image as a “blue collar guy” is as BS as Biden’s.

      He is getting hammered on being a leftist radical and now as a coward who won’t debate, I doubt he will be at +5 in October.

      13% of Rs will vote for Fetterman? They must be people like Amoral Scumbag, who will sell their mothers to sexual bondage if somehow it is bad for Trump. In the end, it might be 10%.

      +10 with Indies is good for Oz. He needs to get it to +20.

      Oz, meanwhile, is still suffering from a contested primary where he won by 1,000 votes and the subsequent narrative by the MSM and Never Trumpers that he was out of touch and doomed.

      The narrowing of the polls will help him with donors and more importantly, dispel the narrative that he can’t win.

      13% of Rs will vote for a Marxist like Fetterman? They must be like Amoral Scumbag, who would sell his mother into sexual bondage if it was bad for Trump. In the end, it might be more like 5%.

      +10 with Indies is good for Oz. If he can get it to +20 he will certainly win.

    24. jason says:

      Am I repeating myself?

      More coffee. And a dementia check.

      More co….hmm

    25. Sheeple,Jr. says:

      Here is today’s BIG TIME dishonest poll brought to you by The Economist/You Gov. Question 101; Congressional Generic Ballot shows D+8 with the GOP +8 with Independents. How is this possible, you ask? The PID is 39.1%(D) and 25.7%(R).So this is a D+13.4% PID!

    26. DW says:

      What many don’t realize about the student loan bailout is that because these were originally LOANS, not grants, the students could, and almost always did, take out MORE funds than they needed to cover the tuition costs, and these extra funds just go right into the students’ wallets so they can buy beer.

      That’s what we have come to in the USA. Free beer for college students, with AOC saying we are selfish if we don’t want to pay for it.

    27. jason says:

      “They so called “Deep State” is where we will disagree. Many federal workers join the government out of idealism, especially young college grads with no marketable degree.

      So that is the “Deep State?”

      LOL

      I have said many times Clinton, Obama and now Biden specifically and academia in general has filled federal agencies with liberals, who in turn tend to hire more liberals, and some are using their power to advance their ideological agenda.

      If THAT is the Deep State, then there is no disagreement.

      But I don’t think most of the Deep State proponents here agree with you, they think there is a “state within the state”.

      Hm. I guess New Yorkers must be using whipped cream for some kinky things.

      Not that I’d know anything about that of course. I’m just saying.

    32. jason says:

      Supposedly kids use the nitrous oxide in them to get high.

      Entrepreneurs probably already driving across the bridge to buy thousands of them to sell at a premium on the streets.

      This is as stupid as Bloomberg’s ill fated law banning large sodas.

    33. DW says:

      Wes, whenever a politician does what Crist just did, it only illustrates that he was never there in that position to SERVE the people as a public servant.

      It was only ever about what the position could do for HIM. Once the position no longer advanced HIS interests, he had no use for it.

    34. Wes says:

      Oh, I know, DW. Crist was always a self-seeking opportunist who used his various offices for personal gain. He never cared about his constituents, and it showed. That’s why he could win only a gerrymandered seat in Congress after leaving the governorship–and routinely underperformed in it.

      I’ll be watching his concession speech in November with popcorn in hand.

    35. Phil says:

      Wes, BTW, Baris has made definitive calls on the following races.

      Lake will win in Arizona
      Vance will win in Ohio..

      and confirmed is in total line with you saying Budd will definitely win in NC.

    36. Phil says:

      Jason, I didn’t see that poll showing Oz up 10 among Pennsylvania Independents.

    37. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      I like the fact Musk speaks his mind even when it goes against his financial interests:

      “Musk said the world must continue to extract oil and gas in order to sustain civilisation, while also developing sustainable sources of energy.

      “Realistically I think we need to use oil and gas in the short term, because otherwise civilisation will crumble,” Musk told reporters on the sidelines of the conference.

      Asked if Norway should continue to drill for oil and gas, Musk said: “I think some additional exploration is warranted at this time.””

    38. jason says:

      Sheep posted it.

    39. Phil says:

      Yeah, I see it now. Fetterman +19 favorability?

      Uh, exactly why for God’s sake?

    40. jason says:

      Man of the people….

    41. jason says:

      Wes, BTW, Baris has made definitive calls on the following races”

      Has he notified the states the election is no longer necessary?

      Will save money.

    42. Phil says:

      No. Man of the STUPID people. There are just more of those in Pennsylvania than in other states.

    43. DW says:

      Its just like Joe Manchin–a man of the STUPID people.

      Well, when it comes to stupid people, no state can compete with WV – in a class of their own.

      With the libertarian candidate this one may head into a runoff.

      – That’s why the libertarians exist. Not to win, but to mess up the process. Same thing happened to Perdue in 2020. Tester won in 2012 solely because a libertarian loser ran and siphoned just enough votes from Rehberg to get Tester across the finish line.

      The Deep State is a collection of ideologues who not only push their agenda through gubbermint but collude to behave illegally and use gubbermint resources to go after their enemies.

      They actually succeeded in convicting people of crimes and will continue to do so. That is why they are dangerous. Not because they think alike but because they use their power to target and imprison people. This is what they did in Nazi Germany and communist regimes. It’s now what the FBI and DOJ does regularly.

      …and many people within these organizations say nothing about it or stand up to it and that is why they are culpable as well.

      As the saying goes:

      The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

    49. Tgca says:

      I disagree! By far, CA, NJ, NY, and PA lead the nation in STOOPID people when it comes to being deceived by their politicians over and over. WV is in a class above these states.

      Public school assistant principle caught on tape admitting he won’t hire conservatives, Catholics, people over 30, and that he looks to groom kids into thinking progressively by using tactics to get around the law and mislead parents.

      He has violated a number of state and federal discrimination laws.

      I hope he is prosecuted and imprisoned, and his life is destroyed as an example to others.

      This is an example of collusion among gubbermint employees using their power to break the law.

      His vile comments about religious people, especially Catholics are nothing more than pure hatred and bigotry. Saying you won’t hire Catholics is as vile as saying you refuse to hire AA.

    61. Phil says:

      Baris has his preliminary national numbers completed.

      Approximately 2200 respondents.

      Trump beats Biden by around 5.

      Newsome not competitive at all with Trump.

      Once he completes weighting he sees it at R+3 on the generic ballot.

      The generic has tightened since his last polling but it’s because R have lost some to undecided or not responding. Democratic number remains static.

      Abortion has risen on the importance of issue ranking but only with Democrats and at the expense of their other Democratic issues like healthcare, control, and covid. Hasn’t moved with independents or moderate Republicans.

      Should finish Pa polling by tomorrow and says with weighting he expects Trump will lead Biden by 7 in Pa while Oz will trail by about 3. Says his polling showing generic R underperforming Trump in states like Florida, Ohio, Pa significantly. Working class voters being the main difference.

      No bounce back for Biden despite what the media is trying to say. He’s looking at Biden approval between 38 and 39 percent – negative 57%. Only about 3% undecided. Minds made up on Joe. Media hype on the “comeback” is crap.

      A small win for the 2nd Amendment…

      “Pennsylvania cannot keep a cache of weapons seized from the parents of a gunman who killed one state trooper and permanently disabled another eight years ago, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday.

      The parents of Eric Frein sued after authorities refused to return 25 rifles, 19 pistols and two shotguns that were taken from their home in September 2014, days after Frein ambushed the troopers outside a state police barracks in the Pocono Mountains.

      Eugene Michael Frein and Deborah Frein were not charged in their son’s crime — for which he was convicted and sentenced to death — and none of their weapons were used in his deadly late-night assault.

      The Pike County district attorney, who was named as a defendant in the parents’ suit, had argued that authorities had the right to hold the seized weapons, saying they might be needed as evidence during Eric Frein’s state and federal appeals.

      The Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals disagreed, saying in its ruling Tuesday that state authorities never used Michael and Deborah’s guns as evidence at their son’s trial and violated the parents’ constitutional rights by holding onto them indefinitely.”

      The all but banished to some undisclosed location Andrew Napolitano has a cogent piece on how Trump is going to be indicted and has been outsmarted and thus has no defense to the coming charges. They arent going to charge him with possessing classified info but rather with with having national defense information relating to identity of foreign agents–which is illegal regardless of classification status and is apparently strict liability by virtue of mere possession outside of a federal facility.

      I was wondering why PPP/jensen had yet to drop a NC Senate Poll showing Beasley(D) in front. Well today is the day. Beasley +1 over Budd(R). How did Beasley get the lead?:

      (1) It’s a D+2 poll when 2020 was R+3 in NC
      (2) It does not factor in ancestral Democrats who vote Republican in federal elections

      -What did they used to say about Reagan, whom they derogatively called “the actor”, a 2-time primary loser, supposedly stupid person……..if you listened to the media and Democrats.

      Robbie, compared to ANY Democrat, Palin is the preferable person to win any election she runs in for Alaska. As Mayor, and as Governor, BEFORE McCain chose her as VP and the media commenced with their hatchet job (Palin definitely made some mistakes but none that egregious), she showed how a PUBLIC SERVANT should act, always pushing for more liberty, more freedom, more transparency and less corruption and back-room deals. Your verbal assault against her, as usual, is one of personal vindictiveness and petty disagreement.

      It’s no wonder Pope Francis destroys the Roman Catholic Church more and more every day, when such “loving, giving” people like you can call yourself a “devout Catholic”.

    115. BayernFan says:

      So the Dem won in Alaska. Wow. Looks like the Dobbs decision is going very badly for GOP candidates this year. That will effectively blunt the GOP this November, which may lose House seats. Say goodbye to any chance to take the Senate. I wish things were different.

      The Dems need to decide whether to gamble with an indictment of Trump before November. I think they’ll do it, and it will energize Dem turnout.

    116. NYCmike says:

      I am sure the party apparatus would support whichever candidate got more votes in the first round……same goes for Wes and Robbie…..as the first round is kinda like a primary…….let’s see how consistent people are…….

      Yes, I know what the answer will be.

    117. Wes says:

      Well, Mikey, let’s look at which of them has the higher unfavorable rating and use that as a metric for who should bow out.

      Palin is known as an unserious celebrity. Begich is a conservative legislator who planned to primary Young from the right before the Congressman’s untimely death.

      This isn’t exactly that hard to figure out much as you want to go through unnecessary logical contortions.

      Again, are Palin supporters expected to vote Begich?

      If they are, why aren’t Begich supporters going to Palin? Looks like many of his voters prefer a Democrat instead……and you have no issue with that….why would a “conservative Republican” who voted for Begich then go to the Democrat? That makes as much sense as Robbie saying he supports certain policies, then supporting Biden instead of Trump.

      But my logic is flawed……

    122. Phil says:

      122

      Exactly, Wes.

    123. Dylan says:

      And speaking ridiculous, why have an election to fill a seat for 2 months? Why not just have the governor appoint a filler? Moronic

    124. Wes says:

      You’re not really very smart, are you, Mikey?

      When one candidate is unpopular, people will vote against that person. You may not like it, but it’s true. It’s a staple of politics ever since the advent of the electoral process.

      Begich is a perfectly acceptable candidate with relatively low negatives and no distinct differences ideologically from Palin.

      Palin is not taken seriously, has high unfavorables, and just faceplanted in her political comeback with help from the exact same stupid system that will be in place in November.

      This is about winning elections, not bitching over which candidate’s supporters have an obligation to support which.

      If you want Peltola to win in November, have Palin run again. If not, Begich should be the consensus pick.

      I’m sorry something so simple is beyond your ability to comprehend.

    125. BayernFan says:

      “118

      Energize DEMOCRATIC turnout?

      You’re joking. Right?”

      How is that a joke? Women are incensed over Dobbs. Polling shows it. Overturning Roe is like the proverbial dog catching the car. GOP has not done well at the ballot box since Dobbs. How can you deny it?

      Anecdotally, a few women in my family (doctors) and their spouses, typically GOP voters who voted for Trump in Kentucky and Indiana, are voting straight Dem this November. Why? Bc of Dobbs. They are beyond P I S S E D about it.

    126. Phil says:

      Begich has no negatives to speak of. He’s a solid conservative. He’d win in November easily.

    127. Wes says:

      There is no provision in the Constitution for a Governor to appoint a Congressman, Dylan. Governors can appoint only Senators except in states requiring special elections to fill vacancies.

    128. Wes says:

      Meanwhile, Bay, Peltola ran five points behind the 2020 Dem nominee. You might be able to argue Dobbs has energized Dems, but Alaska isn’t exactly a good example of that contention.

    129. BayernFan says:

      I bet lots of GOP voters don’t trust that a guy from a historically Democrat family will be a conservative Republican.

    130. Bitterlaw says:

      BF- What kind of doctors? Do they have fetal blood on their hands?

    131. Wes says:

      Well, Begich’s voting record and stated positions on issues say he would be, Bay.

      Of course Alaskans may also not expect Palin to finish her term in Congress.

    132. Robbie says:

      There’s no reasoning with NYCmike when it comes to candidate quality. The worse the candidate is the more devoted to that person NYCmike is.

    133. Phil says:

      No. The polls don’t show that about Dobbs. The women that are “pissed” about it are the same progressive women that always are going to vote Democratic anyway…except instead of their #1 issue being climate change or gun control or healthcare or other issues off the progressive fruit tree it’s now abortion. So what? It hasn’t done a thing to change the voting calculous. Polling shows it isn’t cutting against Republicans among indies or moderate Republican women. Take a look at the generic ballot released today by Trafalgar – no changes. R+5…still.

      With regard to indicting Trump before the election juicing the Democratic vote you have it exactly backwards. Baris has been bemoaning the fact that with Trump not directly involved in the election many of his working class voters aren’t as likely to turn out. Want to get them to turn out? Indict Trump before the election. Please do it. Please Please Please!

    134. Tgca says:

      So Begich is less popular among GOP voters in AK than Palin but Palin should drop out?

      What happens if Palin voters do the same to Begich as his voters did to Palin?

      The Dem still wins.

    135. BayernFan says:

    136. Tgca says:

      Agreed!

      The ABORTION decision has not helped Dems or Biden in the polls in places they need it. Numerous polls have shown that the last few months.

      Indicting Trump before an election would be disastrous for the DOJ, the Dems and the country. People already think it’s political and the DOJ is playing defense now against their reputation and missteps. Doing it before an election would destroy any confidence the nation has left in the DOJ and forever ruin Garland’s reputation and almost guarantee his impeachment if the GOP takes the House.

    137. Robbie says:

      Palin had her chance. She got MAGA daddy to endorse her even though she hadn’t run for anything since 2008 and hadn’t run for office in Alaska since 2006.

      Palin quit the governorship to become a celebrity. The voters of Alaska looked at her and said, “no thanks, we’re tired of your routine”.

      She’s a washed-up variety act in search of an audience. She needs to get the hint and leave the scene. Otherwise, she’ll probably lose in November as well.

      But I do recognize that the MAGA code of ethics requires losing when winning is a sure thing. WE did that with good ole Roy Moore in late 2017.

    138. Phil says:

      So Democrats are going to get a bigger share now of the pediatric oncologist vote.

      Well, that will make a huge difference. Republicans are doomed now.

    139. Bitterlaw says:

      So women who have dedicated their lives to curing cancer in children are pissed and plan on voting for politicians who support killing children before they are born? Ironic.

    140. Phil says:

      Yeah, tgca, I can’t think of a dumber political move than for the Biden Justice Dept to indict Trump before the election. I pray that they are so blinded by their hatred towards Trump that they can’t help themselves. DO IT!

    142. Wes says:

      I recall reading about the politics of doctors a few years back and came across the following that found 2/3 of pediatrics, psychiatrists and infectious disease doctors are Dems while 2/3 of anesthesiologists and urologists are GOP.

      It appears there may be some basis for this analysis.

      New data show that, in certain medical fields, large majorities of physicians tend to share the political leanings of their colleagues, and a study suggests ideology could affect some treatment recommendations. In surgery, anesthesiology and urology, for example, around two-thirds of doctors who have registered a political affiliation are Republicans. In infectious disease medicine, psychiatry and pediatrics, more than two-thirds are Democrats.

      I am seeing red flags after the New York and Alaska election losses by the Republicans:

      “Persuadable voters are trending toward Democrats. The latest NBC News poll, conducted this month, included an unusual finding for midterm elections: Persuadable voters in the midterm election are tilting toward Democrats, the party in power. This group accounts for about 25% of respondents, who float between the parties and tend to be male, moderate, independent and exurban. They preferred Republicans by 6 points in the combined NBC News polls of January, March and May. But in the August poll, they leaned toward Democrats by 3 points.
      The GOP’s “enthusiasm” edge is shrinking. In March, the NBC News poll found that Republicans held a 17-point “enthusiasm” advantage over Democrats — that is, their voters were more likely to express high interest in voting this fall. In the August poll, the GOP advantage fell to 2 points.”

      The Alaska race was a flawed candidate where the Republicans split 61% of the vote among three candidates and then you had that ridiculous ranked voting system.

      The NY district was one that the vacating Democratic congressman won by 11 pts in 2020. This one was a two point race.

      You’re over thinking this.

    157. Wes says:

      This RRHer had the best analysis I’ve seen of AK-AL:

      RCV sucks. That’s also the rules of the game.

      Palin quit and left the state. That’s fine, but you can’t go home again and get back in the game easily afterwards. Ask Bob Kerrey or Evan Bayh (and neither of them quit).

      In a special election, that spells doom even in an R state.

    158. Wes says:

      As an aside, we can safely say Mikey advocates the Mikey Maneuver even in House races now.

    159. NYCmike says:

      Wes,

      Answer me this hypothetical.

      If Alaska still had a party primary system, what would you be saying in regards to November if Palin beat Begich and other Republican candidates with her 30% mark?

      Would the party apparatus advocate for the primary winner? Or take their ball and go home?

      Why should Palin back out? Not understanding why the top Republican vote-getter should back out when there is no way to know if Begich would secure Palin’s voters.

      And if you are sure that Palin voters would go to Begich, how are you not pissed off at Begich voters for not supporting the other Republican in the race?

    160. NYCmike says:

      Mind you, this is not about Palin.

      This is about the same people who either get their chosen candidate or go home.

    161. NYCmike says:

      One other thing about Palin – she retired because people were suing her left and right when she was Governor, similar to how Trump has been railroaded again and again by the entrenched political establishment and bureaucracy in D.C.

    162. NYCmike says:

      As for the Alaskan Republican Party, how in the heck did they decide to go to RCV? I would presume it was all-Murk-related, as Tina has said, but of course Wes and Robbie will ignore that little tidbit and blame Palin and Trump and whomever else they dislike at the moment.

    163. NYCmike says:

      In regard to November, as long as Governor Abbott keeps sending out those buses full of illegals to NYC and Chicago and any other sanctuary city, I feel real good for Republican prospects this November, as long as the Chicken Littles like Robbie don’t infect too many RINOS.

    164. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Keep in mind the person who rules over this craziness wants to be president. He clearly is showing he is highly qualified to be the Democratic nominee:

      One more thing: Palin, like every other politician, has an over-sized ego, so I doubt she would step aside for Begich. After all, she received more support than he did……someone really smart like Wes or Robbie correct me if I am wrong on that count…….

      Of course, if Begich really cared for Alaska, and about Republican policies, wouldn’t he see the lower amount of votes he received and humble himself, and step aside for Palin? If she loses, he is a shoe-in in 2024, and if she wins, the citizens of Alaska and the United States get a Republican instead of a Democrat.

    166. NYCmike says:

      -While Robbie rails against Palin and Trump, this is what you get with Democratic policies.

      I can totally understand why Robbie concentrates his anger on Palin and Trump……..

    167. Wes says:

      So let me get this straight, Mikey:

      Palin was the single most high-profile candidate in the race. She also had the backing of Donald Trump, the most recent Republican President. Despite this, she scarcely campaigned as detailed in the article I linked above. She also failed to get enough crossover support to pull past Peltola despite the GOP’s getting over 60% of the vote in this monstrosity of an election.

      Begich is the one who should drop out though–because apparently some people can’t take the rather unsubtle hint that Alaskans don’t want Palin in office.

      A high profile and an endorsement by Trump couldn’t overcome her high negatives.

      I’m not really clear on how this doesn’t scream to you Republicans need someone else. Since Begich is ideologically and comes without Palin’s baggage, I don’t see why the AKGOP shouldn’t rally around him.

      Maybe you can explain that to me.

    168. Wes says:

      Since Alaska has this idiotic RCV system, Mikey, your question is invalid and pointless.

      Since the Frontier State has the moronic system it has, I can say if I lived there, I would have voted Begich first and Palin second.

      I’m not the person you need to worry about though. It’s the voters who won’t vote for her because they think she’s a joke and don’t like her. She couldn’t overcome them this time. I don’t see how it will be any different next time unless Peltola completely implodes over the next two months.

    169. NYCmike says:

      First, you didn’t answer the hypothetical about this result in a primary – would Republican establishment ask Palin to step aside if she won a primary against Begich and others with 30% of the vote?

      Second, I agree with this statement of yours: “Since the Frontier State has the moronic system it has, I can say if I lived there, I would have voted Begich first and Palin second.” She has been away too long for my taste, and between the divorce and her kids, I think she has other priorities. That said, the lame attacks against her from Robbie and yourself about becoming a celebrity and stu ff, give it a break.

      Third, you are dealing with oversized egos all around – Palin, Begich, Murk and the Party apparatus – if they truly care about the citizens and their policies, they should go with the highest vote-getter. There is no guarantee that Begich gets Palin voters, if they decide to act the same way Begich voters acted, so by what reasoning is he the better choice? I would look for one of them to drop out so that the other could win. In a primary system, that would be those with the lower amount of votes…..I see you are able to accept multiple ways of voting, similar to how I was flexible in Utah……glad to see you grow as a person.

    170. NYCmike says:

      In my personal opinion, if Begich and the Republican Party of Alaska got behind Palin, she could win the election in november…….but I suspect they will be stubborn and petty like Robbie.

    171. NYCmike says:

      So, don’t blame me, and don’t just blame Palin. Begich and the party apparatus deserve blame, because all of them unwilling to sacrifice in the way needed to win in November, as far as we have seen…….time will tell.

    172. NYCmike says:

      “I’m not really clear on how this doesn’t scream to you Republicans need someone else.”

      -She was able to get more votes than him. That’s one point in her favor.

      Again, how do you discount that?

      If Trump, Begich and the party apparatus all help Palin, can she win?

      I would have expected Trump and Palin to help Begich if he had gotten more votes than her.

    173. Wes says:

      So universal name recognition and a Trump endorsement weren’t enough to get her a victory, Mikey.

      Isn’t the definition of stupidity doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result?

      You can deal with unicorns, cryptids, and hypotheticals about what would have happened had AK had a traditional election system. I’ll worry about what happened in this thing called reality.

      The fact remains that Palin hardly campaigned and had high negatives. Those two things cost her the election.

      I don’t know why you continue to make the case for her when that’s the reality of the situation.

    174. Wes says:

      By the way, Trump is sitting on $100 million in his PAC. To spend money on politics is the sole purpose of a PAC. I’m not sure how you think Trump is planning to help anyone when he’s just sitting on nine figures of money he could be spending to boost candidates in competitive races.

    175. NYCmike says:

      -Yup, Trump would have allowed the same thing to happen, right Robbie?

      And I’m sure that Palin, if she made it to D.C., would have a field day with this.

      Of course, for some reason, Republican Senate leadership isn’t blasting stories like this out 24/7……

    176. NYCmike says:

      I’m not making the case for her, I’m trying to figure out why she should be the one to bow out, even though she got the most votes of the Republican candidates while, as you stated, barely campaigned.

      If the party apparatus gets behind her, along with Trump and Begich, why do you think she would lose?

      And again, can you GUARANTEE Begich wins, and ny what metrics do you use? Did they say how many second-place votes he got?

    177. NYCmike says:

      “By the way, Trump is sitting on $100 million in his PAC. To spend money on politics is the sole purpose of a PAC. I’m not sure how you think Trump is planning to help anyone when he’s just sitting on nine figures of money he could be spending to boost candidates in competitive races.”

      -He should be spending it, along with Thiel and McConnell and everyone else.

      Too many egos I guess. I blame them ALL, not just one of them.

    178. Wes says:

      Can you GUARANTEE Palin can overcome her high negatives and lazy campaigning to beat Peltola in the fall, Mikey? I’m going to guess no if you’re honest.

      Name ID and a prominent endorsement got Palin to the mid 30s in the vote. Lazy campaigning and high negatives kept her from getting higher than that and beating Peltola. Obviously you want a repeat of the current results.

      That’s on you.

    179. Wes says:

      Mikey, according to the polls on 538–all of which said Peltola would have beaten Palin–Begich would have won without Palin in the race:

      https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/polls/alaska/

      Palin lost, so logically it looks as if Begich can win while objectively speaking, Palin can’t.

    180. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Apparently Republican candidates are cooling their anti-abortion stands:

      “Republicans initially argued that abortion wouldn’t significantly boost Democrats.
      But in battlegrounds races in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Colorado, Arizona and North Carolina, GOP nominees are scrubbing abortion language from their campaign websites and moderating their rhetoric on the trail. Blake Masters, the GOP Senate nominee in Arizona, removed language that said, “I am 100% pro-life,” NBC News found.”

    181. Gordon Allen says:

      So Barris has congressional generic at R plus 3,and Trafalgar R plus 5.
      So basically the GOP is in good shape.
      The Democrats, Media,and their polling adjunct have been pushing relentlessly a Dem comeback narrative, and some fall for it.
      The economy will be worse 2 months from today than now.
      We’ll be OK if we can unite our different factions.

    182. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      185. A large percentage of people vote based on if they like the candidate, not because of the candidate’s political party. Candidate selection is paramount. Almost 59% of Alaska voters voted for a Republican in the three way run-off, then in the final many Begich voters switched to Peltola, (regardless of Trump’s endorsement).

      “In this case, Peltola won 39.7 percent of first preferences, followed by Palin with 30.9 percent and Begich with 27.8 percent, with 99 percent of the ballots counted. Write-ins also garnered 1.6 percent of the vote.

      That means 58.7 percent of voters initially cast their ballots for Republican candidates.”

    183. Gordon Allen says:

      Phil the problem with turning out the “working class” vote is the widespread( correct) impression that the Washington DC GOP establishment doesn’t care a whit about them, and is infested with “go along, get along types”. A louder and more aggressive voice( and action) would help.The fact Biden and the Dems outright call Republicans “fascists” draws crickets in response, and is noted.
      Trump should be calling for unity among all sorts of Republicans like NOW( and shouldn’t have have ignored Reagan’s 11th Commandment in the first place). We have to up our game starting now, anf if we do we’ll be OK.

    184. jason says:

      hen in the final many Begich voters switched to Peltola, (regardless of Trump’s endorsement).”

      Nobody “switched”. And their was no “final’, there was only one election, in which you voted but could also select a “2nd choice”.

      Rs got 60% of the vote, but they split between Palin and Begich. Begich was third so he was eliminated.

      However, the Dem had about a 14k vote lead on Palin. When the 2nd preference votes were tabulated, many of the Begich voters did not select a 2nd choice. Of the ones that did, 50% HAD CHOSEN Palin and 25% the Dem.

      Because of the “exhaustion” of Begich votes, that was not enough for Palin to make up the difference, so she lost by about 7k votes.

    185. jason says:

      It would have been fun to see Palin win the seat, that is why I was rooting for her.

      But now I agree she should drop out, she had her chance.

      If she stays in and has little chance of winning, she becomes a deadender.

    186. jason says:

      Begich’s ballots broke down:

      Palin (R) 50.3%
      Peltola (D) 28.8%
      No second choice (exhaust): 20.9%

      Begich voters were Republicans. Yet almost a third of them ranked Peltola, a Dem, second.

      Now before we panic, this is a third of the 29% who voted for Begich, not a third of Republicans.

      If you consider Rs were fairly evenly split between Palin and Begich (31% to 29%), you can infer about 15% of total Rs chose the Dem second rather than Palin.

    187. jason says:

      Rs actually improved their share of the vote from 2020 by 5%.

    188. jason says:

      It would have been interesting to see the 2nd choices of the Palin voters.

      I wonder if this will be available.

    189. SoHope says:

      Ranked voting. Run-offs after primaries. Anything other than “the most votes on Election Day” seems to screw Republicans.

    191. Bitterlaw says:

      Sorry. Runoffs after the general Election.

    192. jason says:

      I read the exchanges above between wes and NYC.

      Had I been voting in AK, I would have voted for Palin with Begich second.

      However, it seems obvious from the numbers that Palin has a higher rejection rate than Begich. Fair or unfair, it is a fact.

      So Rs should go with the candidate with best chance to win the GE, which is Begich.

      NYC’s argument that IF everyone in the R party united behind Palin, she COULD win seems weak to me, because that is not realistic.

      Palin should do the right thing, which is drop out and keep a Dem from representing her state.

      She had her chance, all she had to do was convince about 7k more Begich voters out of 50,000 to rank her in second place.

      Since she couldn’t do that, it is time to bow out.

    193. jason says:

      Anything other than “the most votes on Election Day” seems to screw Republicans.”

      @bonchieredstate

      I see no one is going to learn any lessons.

      Sarah Palin is not popular in Alaska and whining about voter choices isn’t winning an election. She isn’t entitled to second-choice votes.

      But by all means, let’s keep sticking our head in the stove. I’m sure it’ll work next time.

    202. Tgca says:

      Folks keep saying Palin is a joke and not liked but she came ahead of Begich. That implies more GOP see her electable than Begich so is he also a joke and not liked?

      The analysis here is very biased and not serious. It sounds like something Robbie would reason because he doesn’t like the candidate.

      You may not like Palin but she beat Begich fair and square so without proof that Begich can win over Palin voters anymore than she can win over his voters in a GE, I don’t see why she should drop out.

    203. Tgca says:

      I always thought ranked voting is silly because it’s at the whim of the voters at a given point. More than likely, many Palin voters would not chose Begich as a 2nd choice and vice versa when they’re in a direct contest and that’s when emotions are highest for your candidate and against the opposition.

      However, if given enough time without rank voting most people come around to the party candidate.

      We see this in elections all the time. Think Hillary and Obama. Hilary and Bernie. Trump and Rubio/Cruz.

      The rank voting does not allow heads to cool off and reason set in.

      If only 2,610 voters had time to cool off after an election, Palin would have won as an example.

      No matter how favorably you try to spin things for Palin, she couldn’t overcome her own flaws as a candidate and lost despite all her putative advantages.

      It’s time for Palin to realize Alaskans have sunset her political career.

    206. Tgca says:

      Palin should run again for the seat in Nov.

      If she loses, this is worth it to push the AK GOP to toss the silly rank voter system.

      Do most Alaskans really want a Dem in Congress to vote with the radical left because of a flawed voting system? That should be the question to most Alaskans.

    210. Robbie says:

      A strong plurality in a multi-candidate field does not suggest that candidate is more electable. It suggests that person has a strong, but non-majority following. Jeremy Corbyn had a very strong following among Labour voters, but he was certainly not more electable in an actual general election. See 2019.

      Palin had universal name ID, the backing of MAGA daddy, and a brief tenure as governor of Alaska. The fact she could only get a plurality of voters in a deeply Republican state shows she is not particularly popular or more electable than others. About 20% of Begich voters simply said no to her when asked to rank their second choice on the ballot. That is not an electable candidate.

      Again, Palin is the very definition of a vanity candidate. She quit the governorship midterm because she wanted to cash in on her celebrity. In other words, she cut and ran. She set up shop in Arizona for quite a few years and spent her time a decade ago traveling the country in a bus teasing a presidential run that, thankfully, never came.

      As Wes pointed out, Palin barely bothered to campaign for the seat. She thought her celebrity, her brief stint as governor, and her flameout VP effort were enough. Turns out it wasn’t enough. Turns out Alaska voters wanted nothing to do with a woman who recently spent time on “Masked Singer” rather than spending time in the state.

      But, again, if someone prefers vanity candidates who just make the other side mad, by all means, vote for Palin. I’m sure the Democrats will gladly take that tradeoff as well because it netted them a House seat that was labeled as “Safe Republican”.

      – Generally, it prevents fringe candidates with small, but fervent supporters from winning with a small plurality.

      It can be argued Republicans got Youngkin in VA last year because RCV was used in the nominating convention. Otherwise, we’d have probably ended up with a Corey Stewart style candidate who’d have lost.

      I oppose RCV, even though I like that usually prevents cranks from winning, because I think it violates the “one person, one vote” concept.

      It’s like saying Trump should have stepped aside for Rubio in 2016 because he had baggage.

      Palin lost because of the voting system. It is likely Begich would also have lost in this circumstance as well if he were ahead of Palin because it is not likely enough Palin voters would have ranked him 2nd in a contest.

      Tgca, you are wrong on Palin.

      I agree with you a lot of what is being said about her here is a biased and based on personal animosity against her. I certainly ignore all of Amoral Scumbag’s stupidities, this is a guy who calls DeSantis a clown and a total bum.

      I wanted her to win, not because I really like her, but because she is a fighter and it would have been fun to see her skewer the Dems and the country club Republicans.

      But here is the deal. She was governor of a small state, everyone knows her. She was a VP nominee. As wes says, she had by far the most name recognition.

      But when it came down to votes, she only edged out Begich by 2 points, a couple thousand votes. It is fair to say she is only marginally popular among Rs and very unpopular among the rest of the population.

      It is much more likely Begich can attract enough indies to win the GE than Palin because he has a lot less baggage and less rejection.

      If she had beaten Begich by a wider margin, I would agree with you she should pursue the nomination based on her popularity with Rs. That is not the case.

      I just don’t see a logical case for her at this point. Sorry.

      In fact, I am willing to bet they didn’t. I am willing to bet more Palin voters put Begich as second than the other way around, and fewer put the Dem.

      Robbie complains about Palin’s post political career cashing in on fame. You mean like the Bush clan? Obama’s? Clinton’s?

      – This is a laughable comparison.

      Clinton, GWB, and Obama all finished their full terms as president and were never going to run for office again. Outside of endorsements in campaigns, none of them are active in politics or are contemplating some sort of second act by running for an office below the presidency.

      Palin cut and ran from her governorship midterm in order to make money. Plain and simple. She then proceeded to play an active role in candidate selection in 2010 and teased a presidential run in 2011. She quit so she could cash in and hopefully enhance her political standing.

      Every president has a post presidential career. However, there’s a difference between writing a memoir, sitting on various corporate boards, and establishing presidential libraries and resigning from an elected position to do a reality TV show called “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”, starting a super pac aimed at self-promotion, and being a cast member on the “Masked Singer”.

      And even if you say “But Bill Clinton” (he’s a shady character), his post presidential shadiness absolutely cost his wife the presidency in 2008 and 2016.

    224. Tina says:

      This is a dispute between a former president and national records. The presidential records act is the default here. However not everything belongs to archives as suggested in the overly broad warrant and limited release.

      With that said. The fib did spy on trump and his campaign.

      So they have no trust here.

      Even Jason isn’t buying into Tg’s hagiography of Palin. That says a lot actually.

      Also, while the Begich name may be fairly well known in Alaska, especially among older voters, Nick Begich himself is known in depth only to his current constituency. Despite this, Palin edged him but couldn’t beat Peltola.

      Sorry, but lionizing her after such an embarrassing loss is doing neither her nor anyone else any good.

      President Trump Rally on Saturday, September 3, 2022!!!!

      Saturday, September 3, 2022: Join the RSBN crew LIVE from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, PA for all day coverage of President Donald J. Trump’s SAVE AMERICA rally.

      – The year is 2032. An 86 year old Donald Trump, having lost the presidential race in 2024 and 2028, is still holding rallies denouncing the rigged 2020 election and teasing a fifth run for the White House.

    227. Tina says:

      Governor Nuissance’s in-laws have donated to Desantis.

    228. Tina says:

      The year is 2032

      Russian hoaxer posts more conspiracies on r candidates.

      Russian hoaxer replaced his portable heater for his basement from a state program in 2031.

    229. jason says:

      I am thinking of going to the rally. Anybody else?

      I will wear my “I love llamas” t-shirt so I can be easily recognized.

      Russian hoaxer replaced his portable heater for his basement from a state program in 2031.

      – The difference is the portable heater would still have a higher IQ than the person who believes Jim Hoft and Gateway Pundit are credible sources of news.

    231. Tgca says:

      In addition, Begich lost election in the Anchorage Assembly to another Republican in 2016 by 16 points. He lost to a young lady who also ran and lost for Mayor of Anchorage by 20 points in a city that is close to evenly split among both parties.

      Clearly, it’s not the 1st time he lost against another Republican, and not a significantly strong one either.

      So there’s that too.

    232. jason says:

      The year is 2032″

      Amoral Scumbag is still here trolling with his old despicable and hackneyed M.O. of attacking every R actually on the ballot while shilling for every Dem opposing them.

      And he will still be met with the same derision and revulsion as he is now.

      He was will just be an older version of what he is now. A sad, pathetic, vindictive, petty little turd of a loser.

    233. Tina says:

      The year is 2032 and Jason fraud is still arguing Republicans don’t need the suburbs anymore even though Trump has lost three times in a row and Democrats have won the last three presidential elections, ended the filibuster, added DC and Puerto Rico as states, and enlarged the Supreme Court to 15.

      – The sudden expert on NARA and the PRA has some thoughts.

      It’s really too bad no one in DC has asked Tinfoil about the correct interpretation of the PRA.

      She could have saved Donnie and Donnie’s lawyers a lot of time since even Donnie’s lawyers aren’t arguing the goofy point she continues to make.

    236. jason says:

      Damm, what a bad candidate, and yet here are the numbers:

      Palin 58,328 31%
      Begich 52,504 28%

      So Tgca says Palin could hardly beat a guy who lost the Anchorage Assembly by 16 points?

      Ok.

    237. Tgca says:

      I am not lionizing Palin. I’m pointing out the extreme bias in the analysis because some don’t like Palin.

      The fact is she beat out Begich by 4 points so why should she drop out in Nov when it is likely she would win in a 2-person race.

      Begich has not demonstrated he can win an election since he lost to another novice GOPer in a GOP seat in 2016.

    238. jason says:

      Democrats have won the last three presidential elections, ended the filibuster, added DC and Puerto Rico as states, and enlarged the Supreme Court to 15.”

      And Amoral Scumbag, as usual, vote for all that.

    239. jason says:

      Actually, not likely at all.

    240. Tgca says:

      Jadon makes the argument for Palin that others make for Trump here.

      Palin and Trump both won elections in the past and then list close elections.

      Both are lightning rods and have people in their party that don’t like them or want them to run and risk losing a winnable seat.

      Trump should then also step aside under the same rationale if Palin should step aside even though both lead in their party choices.

      Not only believed them, he was here quicker than a maggot on horse turds to post every MSM bogus story for years.

      Remember when his icon was some idiot shrink who diagnosed Trump on TV as mentally impaired?

      Or when he touted Michael Avenatti as the moral compass for America, the man who was (finally) going to bring down Trump.

      Or when he breathlessly declared Michael Cohen had the goods on Trump for sure, he saw it on MSNBC?

    242. jason says:

      Nah, bad analogy.

      If in the primary season Trump struggles to beat DeSantis, and only does so by a few points in important states, for example, I will go ahead and say we better go with DeSantis who has a better chance at the GE.

      But if Trump dominates the primaries, I will certainly oppose any “brokered conventions” to deny him the nomination.

      The problem with Palin is she should have beaten Begich decisively and she should have been compelling enough at least to get his second preference votes.

      She did neither. Time to call it quits.

    243. Phil says:

      Jason, taking bets on when Robbie has DeSantis a clown again. Once Trump is off the stage Robbie will instantly go after DeSantis once he isn’t needed as his Trump foil. Don’t think he’ll go all in on Liz (his first choice) because he can’t sell her to anyone. My guess is he’ll start pitching Nikki Haley. At any rate, Robbie on the DeSantis bandwagon’s days are numbered. Absolutely a sure thing. The fun part will be what bogus excuse he’ll use to call DeSantis clown again. Bookmark this post.

      Jason, taking bets on when Robbie has DeSantis a clown again.

      – The odds will be astronomic because I won’t. DeSantis is a good candidate and a good governor. I didn’t like the way he pandered to Trump in the 2018 primary, but he’s won me over with his actual governance. I just hope he realizes his time to run for president in now and doesn’t make the mistake Christie made in 2012.

      The odds will also be much higher than the odds were that you’d spend all of 2012 attacking me for criticizing Romney and his campaign only to see you echo a decade later the very things I said about him in real-time.

    245. jason says:

      Trump should then also step aside”

      And btw, I won’t be upset if he does step aside.

      I am on record here as saying DeSantis is the future of the R party, not Trump.

      I have reservations about him being able to attract enough working class votes to win, otherwise I would be even more supportive.

      And I oppose any artificial interventions either by the Dems or the country club Republicans to deny Trump the nomination.

      But DeSantis is a great candidate, Rs could do a lot worse.

    246. Tgca says:

      246

      It’s not a bad analogy. Trump usually gets no higher than low 50s in most polls in the GOP. That suggests he is not the clear choice for the vast majority of voters.

      You would expect an ex-POTUS to get 85% or more choice and Trump is nowhere near that in the GOP.

      …and let’s be real, Trump has the current lead because there is no other declared candidate and people are still angry over 2020. If DeSantis decides to run, Trump’s numbers will drop significantly.

Don’t think he’ll go all in on Liz (his first choice) because he can’t sell her to anyone. My guess is he’ll start pitching Nikki Haley.

      – If this were a presidential primary that was unencumbered by Trump (meaning he had no influence or sway), I’d probably give a hard look at Doug Ducey. He’s been one of the best Republican governors of the last 20 years.

      I’d also be very interested in Ron DeSantis for the same reason I was interested in Jeb Bush in 2016. He’s the popular governor of a crucial swing state. He’s reshaped the judiciary in the state and made Republicans the dominant force, even by registration.

      A few years ago, I would have included Nikki Haley high on my list, but she hasn’t run for office since 2014. That was the problem Jeb had. It had been a decade since he last ran.

      I do think a DeSantis/Haley ticket would be a dynamo, though.

    248. Phil says:

      No, Robbie. You’ll drop him like a hot potato as soon as it becomes clear he will be the nominee whether it be 2024 or 2028. Once a Republican actually gets on the ballot you start crawfishing. It’s what you do. You couldn’t even bring yourself to support your own Republican governor over a liberal Democrat. How’s that one working out for you BTW?

    249. jason says:

      Romney and his campaign only to see you echo a decade later the very things I said about him in real-time.”

      Amoral Scumbag is a compulsive liar.

      I never agreed with anything you said at the time, and I still don’t.

      Your attacks on Romney’s wife and family were disgusting. Your attacks on him on the fake ‘vulture capitalist” narrative you copied from the Dems was disgusting. Everything you posted here about Romney was absolute lies you regurgitated from your left wing cesspool sites. Your candidate was Obama and in fact you said you would be here celebrating his win.

      My view on Romney now is that he is an unprincipled media whore who has sold out to the MSM, and who would step on his mother’s neck if it gets him on CNN.

      But I never agreed with your sordid attacks on Romney in 2012 or your 24/7 shilling for Obama. GFY.

    250. Phil says:

      I like DeSantis as well. My only reservation is I don’t see him picking off working class voters like Trump could. Of course, NO candidate on the Republican side will ever do as well with those blue collar voters as Donald Trump. Whether DeSantis could get enough of the Trump coalition is undetermined at this time. If elected, he’d absolutely make an outstanding President IMO.

      THAT you can bet on it.

    252. Phil says:

      Yeah, but it’s going to be fun watching to see what bogus reason Robbie throws out there to dump the Governor of Florida. Let’s see how creative he gets.

It’s what you do. You couldn’t even bring yourself to support your own Republican governor over a liberal Democrat.

      – Cry more, Phil.

      I won’t drop DeSantis, but, clearly, I hit a nerve when I correctly noted you slammed me all throughout 2012 for my accurate criticisms of Romney and his campaign only to then echo all of the points that I made about him a decade later.

      And much like never voting for Trump, I am glad I didn’t vote for Matt Bevin in 2019. He was a terrible governor who spent the entire 2019 campaign attacking teachers. What a brilliant strategy! Thankfully, his loss seems to have taught the Republican voters in the state a lesson because we’ll have three very good candidates next year in Daniel Cameron, Ryan Quarles, and Kerry Craft.

      It turns out in Kentucky, primary voters may not need a sixth or seventh kick by a mule to see if they learn anything. That’s, sadly, unlike national primary voters.

    254. jason says:

      Doug “election fraud is fine with me” Ducey and Nikki “you need to feel my pain” Haley are not getting anywhere the R nomination or VP slot.

      You read it first here.

      All Obama campaign lies and character assassination.

    257. Tgca says:

      I also think Trump made a fatal flaw this week pushing to unseat Biden and put him into the WH after the Facebook and FBI story broke.

      I now think Trump should no longer be the 2024 candidate. He has become so consumed with his loss that he can no longer communicate rationally and focus on the real issues the nation is facing. It is ONLY about him!

      It is utterly absurd to think Biden should be removed from office now, 2 years into his term, and have Trump put in as the rightful winner. There is no legal or constitutional basis for that. None whatsoever! If he can’t understand that, he should not be POTUS!

      Does he want to be POTUS to do good for the country and follow the Constitution or does he want it to be is own personal reality TV series?

      He is now endangering the party with his obsession and failure to accept the loss and instead comeback and strategically win.

      He is not looking to run and win. He is looking to be CROWNED!

      Sorry! He lost me this week after that. I will not vote for Trump in a primary even if DeSantis does not run. I think Trump is now a danger to the GOP with this latest absurdity and he should be abandoned by all donors.

      Someone has to have a serious sit down and tell him he crossed the line and is giving credence to those that think he wants to be a dictator.

      Trump will NEVER accept defeat under any circumstances. I am now convinced of that, even if he legitimately lost in 2024.

      I cannot believe he crossed that line this week. I never expected him to go that far. He sounds crazy!

    258. jason says:

      Yeah, but it’s going to be fun watching to see what bogus reason Robbie throws out there to dump the Governor of Florida.”

      We already know. Take your pick.

      1) He is running a bad campaign
      2) His campaign manager sucks
      3) He is catering to the deplorables, can’t have that, horrors
      4) He is campaigning outside the suburbs
      5) He is trying to court minority voters and other undesirables
      6) He is not a Democrat

      Of course, could be a combination thereof

    259. Robbie says:

      I knew by mentioning Doug Ducey, Jason fraud would come running like a dog that saw food in its bowl.

      Ducey has one of, if not, the best conservative track records as a governor over the last two decades.

      When it comes to legislation, every Republican across the country should follow his lead. Even DeSantis.

      But because Ducey wouldn’t overturn an election MAGA daddy clearly lost, he’s now a liberal to the mouth breathers in this forum.

      Once again, Jason fraud has shown that conservative principles, values, and legislative victories don’t matter. Only fealty to Trump does.

      – The year is 1980 and Reagan has just blown the Iowa caucuses. Those who want to see him win are frustrated with the campaign team he has around him. On the day of the NH primary, Reagan fired his campaign manager, John Sears, and replaced by William Casey and everything turned around.

      I guess if this forum existed in 1980 and someone like me was criticizing the way Sears was running the campaign, Jason fraud would have attacked and said everything was fine and Sears was doing a great job. But it turns out that often campaign staff does matter. For instance, Herschel Walker turned over his campaign team a month ago and it seems to have helped.

      In fact, Jason fraud did something similar in 2012. When I raised prescient concerns about the crappy campaign Stuart Stevens was running, Jason, and Phil too, said Stevens was doing a fine job. Stuart Stevens in now one of the main people running the Lincoln Project.

      Yet another fail by Jason fraud.

    266. Tgca says:

      If I were a Dem strategist, I would recommend every Dem candidate put their GOP rival on the spot and ask them if they believe Biden should be walked out of the WH and Trump be installed because of the Facebook and FBI discussion.

    268. Tgca says:

      It’s not TDS to realize when a candidate has fatally flawed and can no longer be taken seriously.

      I was one of Trumps earliest supporters. I believe he connected with many disenfranchised voters and thought he was the only one running that could defeat Hilary in 2016 when many others doubted it. I believe he was railroaded from Day 1 of entering office.

      But I also know when you start saying crazy chit as opposed to angry chit, that’s where the line must be drawn.

      I knew Trump would whine about being cheated through election day 2024 and that is expected of him. But now to take a news story and expect to remove the sitting president from office is so beyond absurd and crazy talk it gives credence that he is no longer in his right state of mind to lead the party or be POTUS.

      Does anyone here believe Congressional or legal proceedings should start to remove Biden from office and install Trump because of a news story about the FBI talking to Facebook about Hunter’s laptop?

      Does anyone seriously believe that should be the remedy now? Us that how our country should do things now?

    269. jason says:

      But because Ducey wouldn’t overturn an election MAGA daddy clearly lost,”

      Huh, supposedly Trump lost Az by 10k votes, with all kinds of indications of irregularities.

      “Clearly” is a joke.

      And Ducey didn’t have to “overturn” anything. All he had to do was support an honest and non-partisan investigation of the irregularities. Same with Brnovich.

      But they decided they preferred the result to election integrity, and now they are footnotes in political history.

      And btw, contrary to what Amoral Scumbag says that I don’t want to win, I actually gave Brnovich a pass and supported him because I thought he had a better chance of winning than Masters. Unfortunately, he preferred to be Never Trump than do his job so he lost.

      And funny that Amoral Scumbag gives credit to Ducey for governing as a conservative but he gives Trump no credit for the same thing.

      Amoral Scumbags will be Amoral Scumbags.

    270. Phil says:

      Uh, who exactly is calling for Trump to be installed as President? I must have missed that one.

    271. jason says:

      Amoral Scumbag says the reason he celebrate Obama’s win was because Romney ran a bad campaign.

      I love this place.

    272. jason says:

      The correct remedy for a stolen election would be to have Trump reinstated.

      The fact it will never happen doesn’t change that.

    273. Tgca says:

      I would encourage DeSantis to announce as soon as the 2022 election is over his candidacy for presidency. I think an early announcement would ultimately push Trump aside if people seriously believe he is running.

      Let Trump still hold his rallies and complain about being cheated but I’m not sure he’s willing to do what it takes to officially run because now he will have REAL competition, and I would bet most of the GOP political elite and donors would back DeSantis over Trump.

      It is risky and may divide the party at 1st but I think you cannot have someone running for president solely on the premise they were cheated and should be automatically installed as POTUS based on a news story, violating our Constitution.

    274. Tgca says:

      274

      Trump was calling to have himself installed as the legitimate president after the recent Facebook/FBI story on Hunter’s laptop. His argument is it interfered with the election and he was the rightful winner now and there’s proof based on the news story and the FBI agent resigning.

      There is no Constitutional remedy for that. It’s crazy talk and the stuff dictators practice.

      No serious person can justify such nonsense.

      Calling for such nonsense endangers our democracy if Congress or the courts could step in 2 years later and remove a sitting president based on a THEORY because of a news story.

      Trump has entered crazy land now.

    275. Phil says:

      Again, who exactly is calling for Trump to be installed as POTUS?

    276. Tgca says:

      276

      …and where is that remedy in the Constitution or legal precedent?

      That’s goes to “Feelings.” It’s the same nonsense some claimed denied Hilary a win because of Comey’s incompetence.

      Absence proving fraud in a court of law, elections are not overturned.

      A news story that some believe MAY have changed the outcome of an election is not proof of fraud.

    277. Tgca says:

      279

      Trump believes he should be officially designated the winner now because of the story. He is grasping at straws and fails to note how it is constitutionally mandated to now give him the presidency.

      It’s crazy talk!

    278. Tgca says:

      Trump posted and widely reported this week to say a number of times:

      “?This is massive FRAUD & ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never seen before in our Country. REMEDY: Declare the rightful winner or, and this would be the minimal solution, declare the 2020 Election irreparably compromised and have a new Election, immediately!?,” the 45th president said. ??

    281. Phil says:

      Trump being Trump. Nobody I’ve seen is calling for that.

    282. Tina says:

      I think that is political exaggeration by him. I don’t take that seriously.

      The bigger point is that the fib has interfered in the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections.

    283. Tgca says:

      Also notice how this shifts Trump’s excuse for losing from manufactured votes in the middle of the night to people being duped to vote for Biden because had they known about the laptop, they would have voted for Trump.

      He can’t have it both ways. What caused his election loss? Stolen votes or withholding a legitimate news story that would have changed how people voted?

      …and where’s the proof that people would have voted differently has they known? How does a court weigh that evidence 2 years later in making such a monumental decision on our judicial system?

      Hilary could have made the same argument in 2016.

    284. Phil says:

      A very big political exaggeration.

      As always, he gives ammo to his enemies. It’s what he does, and he isn’t going to change.

    285. jason says:

      Rick Scott says the Dc “chattering class” Rs hate Republican voters. He is right.

      And good comments by Bonchie. You won’t see Amoral Scumbag quoting this.

      “I’m not a big Scott fan, but he’s speaking a truth that needs to be spoken in this tenuous environment. I am sick and tired of seeing GOP operatives, including McConnell, who actually put his name to his comments, running to leftwing newspapers to talk about how bad Republican candidates are this cycle. That is irrelevant at this point. The candidates are the candidates, and the primaries are over. To continue to try to relitigate that is idiotic and only helps Democrats as we head towards November.

      Scott’s line about the Washington “chattering class” hating Republican voters is also on the money. I understand that McConnell can’t stand the people who have put him in power all these years, but he could at least not actively kneecap them in the process. That goes for all the anonymous statements being given to the Post and Times as well.

      Besides, a lot of the “bad candidate” talk is simply the establishment not liking who was chosen. J.D. Vance is not a bad candidate. Herschel Walker is currently running ahead of Raphael Warnock in Georgia. Adam Laxalt has a good shot in Nevada. Perhaps Blake Masters is a bit of a mismatch for Arizona, but he’s the guy, and he needs to be supported. Further, some “good candidates” like Ron Johnson are currently trailing according to the polls. Should he not be supported?

      The time to whine and moan ended back in the summer. Republicans must united to defeat Democrats in this mid-term. The stakes are too high to continue to give Joe Biden the power of the purse and the ability to shove through radical judges. That doesn’t mean Republicans will agree on everything, but they agree on the big issues, and those must take precedence. Enough of the silly infighting.”

    286. Phil says:

      He can’t have it both ways. What caused his election loss? Stolen votes or withholding a legitimate news story that would have changed how people voted?

      Both. Why do you presume it has to be one or the other? Both happened.

    287. jason says:

      Besides, a lot of the “bad candidate” talk is simply the establishment not liking who was chosen.”

      Exactly.

      Walker and Oz and Vance are good candidates.

      They were endorsed by Trump.

      Both can be true.

    288. jason says:

      What caused his election loss? Stolen votes or withholding a legitimate news story that would have changed how people voted?”

      Both.

    289. Tgca says:

      284

      He does so! He calls for “The Rightful Winner” to be determined. What do you think that means? …and he specifically notes at a minimum, a new election which means his 1st preference is not the minimal choice.

      It’s not just Trump being Trump. Him whining over and over about being cheated and victimized is Trump being Trump but when an ex president calls for this crazy chit, you take it seriously as to their state of mind.

      Could you imagine if Clinton had called for a new election after Gore lost? Or Obama calling for a new election after 2016?

      It’s crazy talk!

      Sorry! Trump lost me there and I believe he can no longer be reasonable and rational, and that disqualifies him in my book as the future GOP nominee.

    290. jason says:

      Last week Tgca supported Trump over DeSantis.

      Now he supports DeSantis over Trump?

      Fine with me.

      But to say it is because Trump believes he won the election?

      Okayyy… but I believe that too.

    291. Phil says:

      Thanks for posting that, Jason.

      McConnell and his establishment DC crew have absolutely been an anchor. Republican bad candidates, Mitch? As opposed to who? Fetterman Warnock?

      I’m sick of people just glossing over McConnell’s lack of leadership. He’s got an R by his name so he gets a pass? He’s terrible.

    292. Tgca says:

      292

      …and where is the proof? What evidence can be presented in court?

      How do you prove people would have voted differently 2 years later?

      There is no legal or Constitutional remedy for this case based on a news story.

      Anyone that believes there is does not understand democracy and our constitution.

    293. jason says:

      So Tgca, what do you believe is the remedy for a stolen election if not a new one or to reinstate the actual winner?

      I don’t have a problem with what Trump said, I don’t think it is “crazy talk” at all.

      This is different than thinking it will happen. I don’t think Trump actually thinks it will happen, THAT would be crazy.

      Merely stating what he thinks is the correct remedy is not crazy.

    294. Dylan says:

      People need to lighten the up.. . . Trump calling for a new election is “allegory/political theater.” It’s the same as when he asked Russia to “release Hillary’s emails.” And the media froths about him colluding with a foreign power. People don’t see that? sigh.

    295. jason says:

      Nobody said do it based on a news story.’

      The news story just states the kind of conspiracy that existed against Trump, and Tgca is right that it can’t be quantified.

      But given the small margins in WI, GA, PA, AZ it seems likely that the result would have been different.

      Still, I think Trump is right to be outraged about it. We should all be. Because if it can happen to Trump it can happen to a candidate you like too.

    296. phil says:

      Where’s the proof?

      OMG

      The FBI has now admitted their Russian hoax story on the Biden laptop is crap. How’s that for proof?

      As far as the election voting, you seriously believe the ballot harvesting, drop boxes mail in votes with no signature verification wasn’t full of fraud?

    297. Tgca says:

      294

      Yes! Last week Trump was whining over cheating and being a victim.

      This week he is advocating for removing a sitting president from office based on a news story so he can be president again.

      His state of mind has gone from angry victim, legitimate to many, to crazy man wanting to undermine our constitution. How does that make him any less crazy then the radical Dems trying to do the same thing.

      Trump crossed a line I never thought he would but now that he has, I do not think under any circumstances he should be the GOP nominee, as his belief represent a danger to our democracy.

      I would let it pass if it was just mockery but he is dead serious about this. I think this loss has warped his sense of being reasonable and rationale just like many radical Dems.

    298. jason says:

      Him whining over and over about being cheated and victimized is Trump being Trump”

      Maybe. But it is also the truth.

      He was victimized all through his Presidency, the election, and it continues.

      I would certainly “whine” too.

    299. jason says:

      s his belief represent a danger to our democracy.”

      LOL

      Sounds just like CNN and MSNBC and Liz Cheney and Adam Schiff.’

      Danger to democracy is what the Dems are doing.

    300. jason says:

      Tgca is the one with crazy talk, not Trump.’

    301. Tgca says:

      300

      You have proof that if the laptop story was known, millions would have changed their votes to Trump to change the election outcome?

      For something of this magnitude, you need proof. Not a belief.

      Where is the proof to submit to Congress or a court of law?

      You think Congress or courts would mandate the overturning of an election on such beliefs?

      You REALLY believe that?

    302. Phil says:

      as his belief represent a threat to our democracy

      Lord have mercy. Tgca is now parroting the Biden, Democratic BS, Liz Cheney “threat to our democracy” garbage.

      You’ve lost it, man.

      You and Liz get a room. Invite Kinzinger over for a rollicking threesome.

    303. Phil says:

      You really believe that?

      Yeah, especially given the razor thin margins in Arizona, Georgia and Wisconsin. I absolutely do.

    304. Tgca says:

      302

      I don’t disagree with any of that.

      But to overturn an election because of a news story because you THINK voters would have voted otherwise is crazy and there is no precedent for this in our 240+ year history.

      It would destroy our nation!

    305. Robbie says:

      Phil says:
      September 1, 2022 at 12:24 pm
      Uh, who exactly is calling for Trump to be installed as President? I must have missed that one.

      – Trump. He called for himself to be reinstated as president or get a new election twice in 12 hours two days ago.

    306. Phil says:

      Hey Robbie, have you taken back your endorsement of DeSantis yet?

      No? I’ll keep checking.

    307. Robbie says:

      Tgca says:
      September 1, 2022 at 12:29 pm
      I would encourage DeSantis to announce as soon as the 2022 election is over his candidacy for presidency. I think an early announcement would ultimately push Trump aside if people seriously believe he is running.

      – I think this could be the case. I don’t think DeSantis will announce early, but I think, if he did, it would signal to others it’s time to move on from the last six years. All it takes is for one person to the leap.

    308. jason says:

      Trump is no “threat to democracy”, quite the opposite.

      Biden and the Dems are the ones who don’t believe in Democracy.

    309. Wobbles says:

      Hey Robbie, have you taken back your endorsement of DeSantis yet?”

      No, he has not announced yet and is not on the ballot.

      Stay tuned.

    310. Tgca says:

      306

      You’re the one who lost it. I would say this of anyone calling for overturning an election and the removal of the president 2 years later based on a news story with ABSOLUTELY NO evidence.

      You really believe a new election should be called and Biden removed from office based on a news story?

      That is not rational! That is crazy talk!

      That kind of belief is a danger to our democracy, regardless of what party members pushes it. It makes the law and constitution a whim to any belief and results you don’t like.

      I would bet the vast majority of American would agree with me on this too.

    311. Phil says:

      A window into when Robbie abandons DeSantis – when DeSantis actually announces.

      I’ll go with that one.

    312. Robbie says:

      Dylan says:
      September 1, 2022 at 1:10 pm
      People need to lighten the up.. . . Trump calling for a new election is “allegory/political theater.”

      – No, it’s not. Last Summer, Trump was telling friends he would be reinstated by August 2021. Both Charles Cooke of National Review and Maggie Habermann of the NYT wrote about it. Mike Lindell convinced Trump of it.

      Mo Brooks said this past Spring Trump told him last Fall he needed to encourage Republicans in Congress to call for a new election for president.

      Trump genuinely believes he should either be reinstated or there should be a new election for president. He’s been talking about it, off and on, for more than a year.

    313. jason says:

      But to overturn an election because of a news story”

      Trump and a majority of Rs believe the election was stolen.

      The news story should cause anybody, Trump supporter or not, to be outraged.

      The news story is proof of a conspiracy to damage Trump’s chances.

      There is nothing new in what Trump said. And it certainly is no threat to democracy.

      The news story and the deliberate hiding and misinformation about the laptop, THAT is a threat to democracy.

    314. jason says:

      Trump genuinely believes he should either be reinstated or there should be a new election for president. He’s been talking about it, off and on, for more than a year.”

      Yep, and he has every reason and right to do so.

      It’s not going to happen, but I have no problem with Trump “talking about it”.

      Nobody should.

    315. Tgca says:

      312

      I would generally agree.

      But Trump is calling for overturning an election 2 years later based on a new story and removing Biden from office.

      That is crazy talk and a definitely a threat to our democracy.

      As I said, if Clinton and Obama called for this, you guys would be calling that crazy, unconstitutional, a threat, etc.

      Again, Trump was not mocking here but making a serious argument that he would fully embrace if the matter was taken up.

    316. jason says:

      He’s been talking about it, off and on, for more than a year.”

      True, I don’t know why Tgca is suddenly having a conniption now.

      Nothing new here.

    317. jason says:

      But Trump is calling for overturning an election 2 years later based on a new story”

      No. He thinks the election was fraudulent like I do.

      The news story is recent, but Trump’s call for overturning the election is nothing new.

      It is not based on the news story.

    318. Phil says:

      You really believe a new election should be called and Biden removed from office based on a news story?

      No. Where did I say I agreed with that remedy?

      Trump is right. The election was stolen and influence by the FBI. There is also no Constitutional remedy for a new election.

      Both are true.

      Now knock off with the dramatic “threat to our democracy” Liz Cheney, Adam Schiff, Joe Scarface, Lincoln Project, Democratic talking points. I can get that tuning into MSNBC, CNN, or reading the editorials in the NYT or Washington Post.

    319. Robbie says:

      Phil says:
      September 1, 2022 at 1:24 pm
      Hey Robbie, have you taken back your endorsement of DeSantis yet?

      No? I’ll keep checking.

      – Hey Phil, are you still attacking me for correctly noting in 2012 Romney was a mediocre candidate who wasn’t much of a conservative and had a bad campaign, or are you attacking me for not wanting Romney’s head on a pike like you do because you finally realized Romney wasn’t much of a conservative and surrounded himself with dopes like Stuart Stevens?

      I’m having a hard time keeping track of whether you believe you right in 2012 and right today, or whether you were wrong in 2012 and now admitting I was right.

    320. Phil says:

      …and no, it’s not just based “on a news story”.

    321. jason says:

      Again, whether you personally believe the election was stolen or not, what IS the remedy if it could actually be proven?

      And if the remedy IS reinstating or seating the rightful winner, what is exactly the problem with Trump saying that?

      Trump is not going to be reinstated. He knows that. But I don’t fault him for believing what he does.

    322. Robbie says:

      Phil says:
      September 1, 2022 at 1:28 pm
      A window into when Robbie abandons DeSantis – when DeSantis actually announces.

      I’ll go with that one.

      – With any luck, I’ll be here the day he announces and I’ll be able to prove that, yet again, you’ve made another wrong prediction.

    323. Tgca says:

      318

      So then you believe talk is just talk but it should not be taken seriously and is not a legitimate remedy.

      If this was a serious remedy, it would undermine democracy.

      If that is your point, fine.

      But for anyone that believes it’s a serious remedy, that is crazy talk. I believe Trump seriously believes this now.

      I would bet your life if Trump had a venue to pursue this, he would. That is what I find disturbing from an ex president.

      We don’t undo elections 2 years after the fact and expect people to respect and follow the constitution and our laws.

    324. Robbie says:

      jason says:
      September 1, 2022 at 1:31 pm
      It’s not going to happen, but I have no problem with Trump “talking about it”.

      Nobody should.

      – It makes Trump sound even more demented than he usually does so it comes as no surprise you think it’s smart.

      Should he make it the centerpiece of his 2024 campaign? Should his convention speech be about how he actually won 2020 (he didn’t)?

    325. Robbie says:

      There is no remedy for a stolen election and fortunately, we’ve never had a stolen election.

      We do have a lot of crybabies who are mad Trump lost and have decided to say it could only be because the election was stolen, but it wasn’t.

      Willian Barr, a hero to this forum until he wasn’t, said Trump’s election claims were “bullsh!t”.

    326. Tgca says:

      Go back and read Trump’s own words this week.

      He is calling for the legitimate winner to be announced, meaning him, and a new election to be held IMMEDIATELY at a minimum.

      He is advocating that. His words!

      That is crazy talk! It is a threat to our democracy to do such things and you know it because once you go down that route, there is no turning back and the constitution and laws no longer have meaning.

      I get his anger! I get his personal wishes. But for an ex president to call for such things is not only unprecedented but dangerous and if Clinton and Obama had made such claims, you’d guys be all over it like flies on chit.

    327. jason says:

      orrectly noting in 2012 Romney was a mediocre candidate who wasn’t much of a conservative ”

      LOL

      Amoral Scumbag trying to reinvent history, won’t work.

      His objection to Romney had nothing to do with “not being conservative” or “mediocre candidate”.

      Amoral Scumbag was an Obama supporter who used this forum to regurgitate despicable attacks on Romney’s religion, his heritage, his career, his wife, his house, his cars and even his dog.

      It was all about how Romney was a mean vulture capitalist who exploited the workers. How he had not one but two Cadillacs. How he had an elevator in his house. How his wife was Marie Antoinette because she owned a horse. How Romney was an animal abuser for having his dog crated on the roof of a car. THOSE were his sordid attacks on Romney, not because he wasn’t a “conservative”.

      If Romney wasn’t a conservative then, and that was the problem, why is Amoral Scumbag supporting him now?

      Amoral Scumbag wanted Obama to win and Romney to lose. He said so himself by promising to celebrate Romney’s loss.’

      The rest is revisionist BS.

    328. Phil says:

      I don’t remember every chiming in one way or the other regarding anything you said about Romney during the 2012 campaign. The first time I noticed your posts were when you started your never Trumper campaign every day postings in 2015…so there’s that. Second, “the reason I hate Romney is because he’s always been pious, self important, arrogant, I’m morally superior, MSM suck up, collaborator with the left. You may dislike him because of the type of campaign he ran, but my dislike goes far deeper than his campaign competence. My deep hatred for him started when he blatantly showed his colors once in the Senate in a variety of votes – well before anything involving impeachment.

    329. jason says:

      There is no remedy for a stolen election”

      LOL

    330. jason says:

      He is advocating that. His words!”

      Tgca, what is your remedy for a stolen election?

      Anybody, not just Trump?

    331. Phil says:

      William Barr said that?

      Oh well, that clinches it then.

      LOL

    332. jason says:

      rtunately, we’ve never had a stolen election.”

      I guess Amoral Scumbag thinks there was no fraud in GA, WI, AZ, NV or PA.

      Actually, I am sure he doesn’t believe that, but he thinks its ok because it was against Trump.

      The ends justify the means.

    333. jason says:

      “Recent polls indicate that the election interference of limiting the story had consequences at the ballot box. Nearly 80 percent of Americans believe ‘truthful’ coverage of the story would have changed the election outcome. An even higher number of Americans think US Attorney General Merrick Garland should appoint special counsel to investigate the contents of the laptop. Nearly 75 percent of those following the topic believe that the FBI and the intelligence community deliberately misled the public when they claimed the laptop was a Russian disinformation plot to harm Biden’s bid for president.”

      Wow. Does Barris despise McCarthy and McConnell! Clearly believes their albatross on GOP chances.
      I think Trump had a good argument about 2020.
      But calling for a redo NOW is indeed nuts. I fell away from him because his obsession with 2020 and looking back would make him a poor 2024 candidate in my view.
      I stand by my prediction he won’t be the 2024 nominee.If DeSantis wins by 6 points or more in November he will run but I doubt before the end of the 2023 Legislative session in Florida.

      Don’t forget he also shilled 24/7 for Obama against McCain.

      I find it hilarious that “looking back at 2020” is somehow “bad”.

      I would like to ask those that support DeSantis if it is ok for the Dems to steal the election from him too?

      Of course I don’t think the 2020 election is all the 2024 campaign should be about, and I don’t think Trump does either, but I do think election integrity is an important issue. Because if we ignore 2020, the Dems will just keep gaming the elections in their favor with unsupervised counting, ballot harvesting, drop boxes, unverified mail in ballots, etc.

      Some states have tried to fix some of these issues, such as GA and TX. FL has a good system. Ohio too.

      But election integrity is too important to ignore in the name of “let’s just look ahead”.

    353. Phil says:

      It’s what his polling is showing, Gordon.

      The base hates McConnell. His polling consistently shows Republican voters really dislike McConnell. His polling has shown Republicans with a very unfavorable view of McConnell is even with Democratic numbers very unfavorable of him. In one poll they were actually a couple of points even more than Democratic voters. That’s telling you plenty. The Republican dislike for the R leadership is an albatross. Pretty sure McConnell’s remarks on Republican senatorial candidates have only reinforced views.

    354. Phil says:

      The problem the base has with McConnell is that they are disgusted with his lack of pushback.

    355. Phil says:

      ..and if you like McConnell you are going to absolutely love his successor, John “crickets” Thune.

      Thune seemed decent when the GOP was trying to take down Tom Daschle but that was a loooong time ago. He has evolved into a stale milquetoast. Time for a primary challenge.

    358. Phil says:

      Do you ever hear a word out of Thune about anything? Any issue? He avoids saying a word no matter how outrageous the Democratic attacks. Its why he hasn’t been on a cable or Sunday talk show in ages. He’s as bland and inconspicuous as it gets. He doesn’t belong in leadership. Back bencher. Doesn’t want the MSM saying anything negative about him. Not anything like a leader.

    359. Phil says:

      Thune will be a Senator as long as he wants..but leader of the Republicans in the Senate?

      You ask my remedy?

      I think an election redo has a short window of opportunity.

      I was all for submitting analytical evidence to the courts and affidavits showing claims of fraud by eye witnesses. But it has to happen timely. It can’t be 2 years later. …and there has to be a reasonable level of evidence to review and not just “feelings” about what happened.

      As I said in late 2020, if it could not be resolved within a period of time, there would probably be no remedy unless SCOTUS stepped in because neither the Constitution nor Congress has any authority outlining overturning elections, especially a presidential one.

      However, SCOTUS, the only authority on this matter refused to intervene so unfortunately the window closed. Even if they had intervened, it would have been unprecedented and probably controversial without definitive evidence as proof.

      As to evidence, I think it would have taken months to sift through and document the analytical data to prove the voter fraud and that was assuming you could get all the data to analyze.

      So just like the clock ran on Gore in 2000, the clock ran on Trump in 2020.

      I think what could have been done and still done is for a bipartisan look at the fraud claims and then for Congress to pass a law for the future but I just don’t see that happening these days in this partisan environment.

      So in essence, there is no remedy to undo an election of this magnitude. Either way, 50% of the nation would probably not accept it.

      So you move on and try to ensure it does not happen again, as many who have lost stolen elections have done.

      But no president of any party should EVER call for removing a sitting president and doing over an election 2 years after the fact based on a news story they think proves their point.

      That is just plain crazy and goes to significantly weakening our democracy.

    364. Tgca says:

      356

      We can agree on election integrity and states making sure they strengthen the laws to prevent fraud but you need a legislature and politicians who will go to bat for it. A number of GOP leaders in the states backed down, including in AZ, GA, and PA. If you can’t get your own party to fight fraud, then what can you do but vote them out and get others who will fight fraud, and that takes time. The leader of the Senate, McConnell has no interest in fighting election fraud either. That is also clear.

      As for 2024, I’m not sure Trump can get up and focus on the everyday issues people care about other than say they would not have happened if the election was not stolen from him.

      Indys are not going to rush to support Trump if he keeps running on the past without solutions to the future.

      If Trump ran, he has at most 2 years if he won to do anything and it’s going to take more effort than that to fix this mess.

    365. Wes says:

      Dylan, Thune already had a primary challenge this year. Trump went so far as to declare Thune’s political career over. South Dakota’s senior Senator won renomination with 72% of the vote.

      One could argue South Dakotans like Thune and want him representing them in the Senate since he’s faced no serious threat to his tenure in the Congress since beating Daschle in 2004.

    366. jason says:

      If Rand Paul became leader I would re-register and start voting for Democrats.

      Trump told the Wendy Bell show that if re-elected he would issue full pardons and a government apology to rioters who stormed Capitol on Jan. 6: “I mean full pardons with an apology to many.

      – This is a great midterm message and will be an even better 2024 presidential campaign message.

      Here’s the difference. Biden isn’t running on the idea those rioters were good people who should be pardon and issued an apology. Trump wants to do that for people who wanted to prevent his opponent from being certified as the winner of an election Trump lost.

      “Unfortunately, many of the very people responsible for losing the Senate last cycle are now trying to stop us from winning the majority this time by trash-talking our Republican candidate,” Scott wrote in reference to the establishment uniparty in Washington, DC.

      “It’s an amazing act of cowardice, and ultimately, it’s treasonous to the conservative cause,” continued Scott. “Giving anonymous quotes to help the Washington Post or the New York Times write stories trashing Republicans is the same as working with the Democratic National Committee.”

      Sen. McConnell and I clearly have a strategic disagreement here … We have great candidates. … And I think it’s important that we’re all cheerleaders for our candidates. … If you trash talk our candidates … you hurt our chances of winning, and you hurt our candidates’ ability to raise money. … I know they’re good candidates, because I’ve been talking to them and they’re working their butts off.

      It would also make for a much better chance of a GOP victory in 2024 to defeat an unlikeable candidate who will divide the Dem party if they try to force out an AA woman in favor of some white dude.

      Then why you arguing over my posts?

      That was the point of my posts. There is no constitutional or legal remedy 2 years after the fact for removing Biden from office and putting Trump in, especially based on a recent news story which was Trump’s sole support for the official statement he released.

      Any attempt to do so is a threat to our democracy because it would diminish the constitution and our rule of law and then be used to remove future presidents at will as well with no basis, and no ex-president should EVER call for such a crazy scheme.

      It would throw our nation into complete chaos if the attempt to remove Biden was made today.

      I would bet close to 2/3 of the nation would disagree on this

      So my point is Trump has now made himself sound like a crazy man seriously calling for this because of a news report, and that disqualifies him as a serious 2024 candidate as well as someone the GOP wants at the top of the ticket.

      He sounds as crazy as Mad Maxine and The Squad with his call for justice.

      I think this speech belongs in the same category as other hate-filled demagogues- the Know-Nothings, Fr. Coughlin, Huey Long, Joe McCarthy (but at least there were real communists to rail against).

      Any Republican and those who used to be Republicans must vote. There is no excuse, no justification, no basis to surrender to this extreme and dangerous President. If you think the system is flawed, corrupt, or diluting your vote, suck it up and vote anyway. Either you stand against this tyranny or you don’t. I condemn violence in politics (BLM, Antifa, those who were violent at the Capitol, etc) but Biden has redefined violence to mean voting against him. If you don’t vote against him, you might as well just vote for him since it is the same thing.

      Someone should explain to Joe Biden, slowly but passionately, that MAGA means, as powerfully as mere words can get, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! If he doesn’t want to Make America Great Again, which through words, action, and thought, he doesn’t, then he certainly should not be representing the United States of America!

    485. Phil says:

      I don’t understand that speech from a strategic point of view. Midterms are base elections. It’s about turning out more of your voters than the opposition. The best thing Democrats have going is there is no Trump on the ballot to bring out his working-class supporters. Why on God’s green earth would you give a speech like that as President of the United States essentially calling roughly half the country fascists and disloyal insurrectionists? Does he want these potential voters to march to the polls in droves? And what about the independents who are most susceptible to a message of unity? Is that the kind of speech he thinks they want to hear from “the great uniter”?

      The leftists that run Biden either are so angry that they couldn’t help themselves or they are in a lot more trouble than I thought and are simply this desperate. I don’t know which. In any case, that speech and the several others Biden made this past week were a mistake strategically IMO. Biden garnered his strongest support in 2020 from independents who (wrongly) believed this guy would unite the country and dial down the rhetoric…and he gives this speech?

      It was a mistake.

      I guess we have the answer.

      I said no BS, and Bitter comes back with pure BS. If you are sure your vote counts, then not voting helps Dems. If your vote doesn’t count, then there is no difference between voting or not voting. My point is with the PA system in place, you don’t know if your vote counts or not.

      But as I thought Bitter just can’t bring himself to admit it.

      This is not rocket science and there should be nothing controversial about this.

      “I agree with jason that the election process currently in place in PA is partisan, flawed, and corrupt and that illegal votes are diluting the votes of legitimately cast votes, and that absolutely nothing is being done about it and nothing will continue to be done about it regardless who wins the next election”.

      I haven’t had a chance yet to fully review all the docs made public re MAL search but what I have seen further supports the view that the warrant as written was over-broad and the search as executed was over-broad and illegal.

    540. Phil says:

      Mitch had anything to say today?

      I didn’t think so.

      Baris has McConnell’s favorable at 25%….among Republicans.

      Wonder why that is?

      See today’s silence. It ain’t rocket science. The base has no use for him.

    541. Gordon Allen says:

      Tina; Is that the Barris poll w the plus 3 National Generic,or a Pennsylvania only poll?

    545. jason says:

      If the Republican Party is dead to you, why would you vote for Republicans?”

      I am not voting for the party, I am voting for individuals.

      The R party I joined when I came to America had a set of ideals that attracted me to the party. It no longer represents most of these ideals so I have no interest in being a member.

      I prefer it being in power because the alternative is much worse, but the party I worked very hard and contributed a lot to in the past no longer represents me.

    546. Phil says:

      For myself I can say the LEADERSHIP of the party no longer represents me….and that’s the problem for base Republicans. It’s an anchor on Republican turnout in November.

      It just is.

    547. jason says:

      McConnell might not have yet responded to Biden, but the idea that he is somehow afraid to do so is complete BS.

      He slammed Biden in January for the same kind of rant, you can’t get more specific than this:

      “Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., fired back at President Biden after the latter’s flawed election overhaul speech in Georgia on Tuesday, with the GOP leader saying the speech “undermines democracy.”

      McConnell torched the president from the Senate floor on Wednesday, tearing into Biden over his widely panned speech, calling it a “deliberately divisive” and one that was “designed to pull our country further apart.”

      The top Senate Republican said Biden “called millions of Americans his domestic enemies” in the speech and “shouted that if you disagree with him, you’re George Wallace.”

      “George Wallace?” McConnell continued. “If you don’t pass the laws he wants, you’re Bull Connor, and if you oppose giving Democrats untrammeled, one-party control of the country, well you’re Jefferson Davis.”

      McConnell also slammed Biden for invoking the Civil War “to demonize Americans who disagree with him” and pointed out that the president compared “a bipartisan majority of senators to literal traitors.”

      “How profoundly, profoundly unpresidential,” McConnell said. “Look, I’ve known, liked and personally respected Joe Biden for many years. I did not recognize the man at the podium yesterday.”

      “A president shouting that 52 senators and millions of Americans are racist unless he gets whatever he wants is proving exactly why the Framers built the Senate to check his power,” McConnell also said.

      The Republican leader also called Biden’s speech a “rant” that was “incoherent, incorrect and beneath his office,” and said the president’s speech on Tuesday was the “perfect case study” as to “how Sen. Biden was right about the filibuster and President Biden is wrong.”

    548. jason says:

      Let’s see:

      Deliberately divisive
      Undermines democracy
      Demonizes Americans who disagree
      Profoundly, profoundly unpresidential
      Rant
      Incoherent
      Incorrect
      Beneath his office

      But Tina still calls him “Biden’s beotch”.

    549. Gordon Allen says:

      Overnight polling must have been bad,as Biden walked back his comments already.
      Hard to understand what his handlers had in mind for a prepared speech announced days ahead of time.
      Feeling is that not as comfortable with their position as some claim,but seriously wow

    550. DW says:

      One has to wonder if the point of Biden’s speech was this:

      His handlers have used him up and they want to replace him. They of course need a reason, and they want to avoid scandal. So they shove his carcass out there, and put inflammatory rhetoric on his teleprompter, so as to make it seem like Biden himself is goading the Republican base into the action of taking Biden out.

      In that scenario, Biden’s puppet-masters win on everything. They got rid of him. Republicans are at fault for it. Their agenda marches on without Biden messing it up.

    551. Wes says:

      Dems must have seen some HORRENDOUS flash polling on Biden’s speech straight out of the Twilight Zone Eye of the Beholder episode since the President is already doing a 180° turn on it:

      https://www.foxnews.com/politics/biden-says-trump-supporters-not-threat-country-speech-blasting-maga-republicans

      If I had to guess I’d say the major networks refused to give airtime to Biden last night to limit exposure to what Biden said and avoid having to spin such an egregiously noxious speech positively.

    552. Wes says:

      I wonder if Biden watched this while drafting his speech. It certainly seems like it:

      https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TQq4LjSF2rc

    553. Phil says:

      Wes, I think you are giving the networks too much credit here. I was pleasantly surprised they didn’t give him air time….but I’m just not sure they were that cognizant of how bad that was going to go over in advance. The network brass hate Trump and I doubt they could see what a bomb it was going to be because they are so in agreement with Everything Biden has to say.

    554. Wes says:

      I couldn’t find an audio clip of it, but what Biden said last night reads just like this speech Rod Serling wrote for The Twilight Zone:

      Well, we know now that there must be a single purpose! A single norm! A single approach! A single entity of peoples! A single virtue! A single morality! A single frame of reference! A single philosophy of government! We cannot permit… we must not permit the encroaching sentimentality of a past age to weaken our resolve. We must cut out all that is different like a cancerous growth!

      It is essential in this society that we not only have a norm, but that we conform to that norm. Differences weaken us. Variations destroy us. An incredible permissiveness to deviation from this norm is what has ended nations and brought them to their knees. Conformity we must worship and hold sacred. Conformity is the key to survival.

    555. Wes says:

      They may agree with what Biden says, Phil, but some of them at least must understand giving a speech that looks like something Kim Jong Un would give while tacitly declaring war on people of a different political persuasion was probably not the best look for Biden or his party.

    556. Phil says:

      I remember that episode, Wes.

    557. DW says:

      A single purpose! = destroy the USA!
      A single norm! = make everyone a peasant!
      A single approach! = Communism forever!
      A single entity of peoples! = Anarchy for all!
      A single virtue! = Culture of DEATH!
      A single morality! = There is no right or wrong!
      A single frame of reference! = The world-view of the Dictator!
      A single philosophy of government! = Fascism!

      There is your Democratic Party in a nutshell.

    573. Phil says:

      Another of Amoral Scumbag’s icons bites the dust.

      Remember when Amoral Scumbag was sooo excited and thought this moonbat fraud was going to bring Trump down by diagnosing him on TV?

      Yet he calls renowned heart surgeon Dr. Oz a quack.

      “Psychiatrist Brandy Lee, who slammed Trump’s mental state, fails to get Yale gig back

      A prominent psychiatrist who called President Trump and his loyalists mentally ill failed to get her job back after Yale University parted ways with Dr. Bandy Lee two years ago, a judge ruled.

      A federal judge in Connecticut dismissed a wrongful termination lawsuit that charged the Ivy League school with violating the woman’s free speech and professional obligations when she was not reappointed to her role with the school, the Harford Courant reported.

      Lee, who was in an unpaid position, was with the school for 17 years before she was tossed aside. She argued in legal papers she had a “duty to warn” people about the “contagion” of Trump’s mental state, according to the Courant.

      The prestigious university had questions about her judgment and ability to teach after she started making medical proclamations about Trump and others close to him, the newspaper reported.”

    581. jason says:

      Biden Friday: “I don’t consider any Trump supporter a threat to the country.”

      Biden Thursday: “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic.”

      You can’t make this sh-t up.

    582. jason says:

      The list of people Amoral Scumbag thinks should represent the moral compass of the country is hilarious:

      -Bandy Lee
      -Stormy Daniels
      -Michael Cohen
      -Michael Avenatti
      -John Weaver
      -Steve Schmidt
      -Joe Biden

    583. Tgca says:

      I believe many victims suffered just as much or worse under brutal vicious dictators throughout history so I personally think it’s ok to use Hitler or any dictator references when trying to make a point about behaviors of leaders.

      Hitler started out by condemning groups of people, targeting them through gubbermint, and trying to turn the masses against them and he used certain symbolism to accomplish that effort.

      What Biden did the other night was an example of early Nazi tactics so he should be called on it.

      These tactics have been used for centuries where masses of people and cultures were effectively wiped out so it’s not unique to those the Nazis targeted. All these monsters should be called out regularly to remind people of the heinous acts they did.

      Biden’s behavior the other night was reminiscent of early Hitler so he deserves the comparison.

    584. Tgca says:

      So Brennan is concerned Russia may have been targeting Mar-a-lago and that’s why this case against Trump is so concerning.

      So he’s concerned Russians could get into an ex-presidents guarded residence to sift through boxes in a locked room and copy materials but he’s not concerned about Russians and Chinese remotely hacking into Clinton’s unauthorized non-gubbermint emails that contained classified data and had weak security protocols.

      Ask yourself which is more likely a real scenario to worry about?

    585. jason says:

      I am not crazy about the Hitler comparisons.

      Hitler is directly responsible for 60 million deaths in WWII and the extermination of millions of Jews and other “undesirables” in the most horrendous manner possible.

      I think it is ok to say the picture of Biden ranting in the dark reminds us of the images we saw in the Third Reich and his speech was fascistic in nature, but I wouldn’t compare Biden directly with Hitler, that is over the top.

    586. jason says:

      This assumes there was actually anything at Mar el Lago that would interest the Russians, which I doubt.

      Seem like the CO senate candidate is typical of the kind of R the party needs.

      I am sure Amoral Scumbag would hate him and has already mailed a check to Bennet. You don’t want any Rs “from the wrong side of the tracks”.

      “O’Dea has come up in life the hard way — adopted at birth by a Denver police officer’s family. He helped pay for his Catholic high school tuition by washing dishes at a local pizza shop. He says he cut his college education short because he just wanted to get on with the business of making money. “My wife and I started my company from our basement in 1983 with me changing attic fans,” he said. “Today, we’ve built a company called CEI Constructors, that employs 300 families here in Colorado, 80% of them Hispanic.”

      His wife Celeste is the granddaughter of Mexican immigrants.

      Bennet is from the other side of the tracks, the son of a diplomat who then became the president of National Public Radio. Bennet’s education was the best of the best: St. Albans School in Washington and eventually Yale Law School. After a move to Colorado, he was appointed to the Denver city school superintendent’s job. Thirteen years ago, he was appointed to the position he holds now: senator.”

    590. Tina says:

      So, we will now get Russian hoax 3.0 by Brennan and the jebots?

    591. jason says:

      A man flying a hijacked plane has been circling over Tupelo, Mississippi, and threatening to crash it into a Walmart store, according to the Tupelo Police Department.”

    592. jason says:

      I saw the video of the plane circling, pretty good size, twin engine, could do a lot of damage.

    593. jason says:

      If he hits Walmart and there is another store across the street, will he miss the Target?

    594. Wobbles says:

      O’Dea didn’t even finish college.

      We have to make sure these people of working class origins don’t get near the senate. And his wife is Hispanic, probably never went to a country club.

      What is the R party coming to?

    595. jason says:

      Bill Barr doesn’t like country club Rs either.

      Bill doesn’t like country club Rs either. And he wants a “Pro-Trump: candidate.

      Amoral Scumbag hardest hit.

      “Former Attorney General Bill Barr said that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis would be “an able successor” to Trump in an interview on the ‘Ricochet’ podcast. Barr the 2024 Republican nominee for president must be someone that will fight smart and win, not a “namby-pamby” or a Country Club Republican.

      “I think DeSantis is a very able politician – far more able than Trump as a politician – understanding the whole battlefield and looking at the whole battlefield in an integral way whereas Trump just fights the fight of today regardless of the cost and benefits to the whole battle,” Barr told Ricochet.

      “I want a successor to Trump who is a fighter like Trump,” Barr said. “I am not looking for a namby-pamby or what they would call a Country Club Republican who wants to get along. I am looking for someone who fights. Someone who fights smart and wins. Therefore, I think any successor to Trump has to be someone who is pro-Trump in terms of policies and so forth. And I think DeSantis is.”

    596. jason says:

      So take Barr’s attacks on Trump with a grain of salt.

      It sounds like he just wants to promote DeSantis.

    597. Phil says:

      Yeah, surprising comments from Barr on DeSantis. I figured Barr would love a just get a long Republican. Still don’t trust Barr but he is right that that DeSantis is a fighter who is far more strategic than Trump. That’s obvious….but of course just about anyone would be more strategic than Trump.

    598. Tina says:

      I take Barr with a grain of salt.

      His term as Ag was awful.

      He never prosecuted blmer for thr attacks on the secret service, 60 were injured.

      He let the Russian hoax go on too long and failed to prosecute anyone (McCabe, thr Penguin, the Commie, etc.,)

      He said that mail in ballots were a recipe for fraud (cnn interview in May of 2020). Then he reversed course after being threatened with impeachment.

      He also said that trump should not have had any classified documents (assuming that they were classified) at MAL. Does he not know that the president often takes work home with him?

      He is not aware of the PRA? He is not aware of trumps,standing declassify order plus memorandum and tweet about declassifying all matters related to the Russian hoax with NO Redactions.

    599. Tina says:

      Trump could then ask for a personal record (copy) of those documents, which is his and not the archives.

      Looking over at the inventory, there are lot of empty binders, clothing, articles, magazines, etc. Those items do not belong to the gubment (archives).

      That is why a special master needs to be appointed.

      Then trump will move on to a 41g hearing as the warrant and search were illegal.

    600. Tina says:

      Lookiing at Baris polling

      Masteiano is tied.

      I think trump can help,both mastriano and Oz since trump is plus 7 over Biden.

    601. Tgca says:

      I think Biden’s dangerous speech the other night is resulting in threats of violence. The pilot with the stolen plane circling Walmart is threatening to crash into the store.

      Notice he picks Walmart where DEPLORABLES shop. He did not pick Neiman Marcus.

      Clearly Biden is fomenting violence against DEPLORABLES!

      “Former Attorney General Bill Barr said that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis would be “an able successor” to Trump

      – Bill Barr has long been one of the original “originalists” in government. His nomination as AG in the final year of GHWB’s term was a victory for the conservative cause.

      The only people who are surprised Barr would speak well of DeSantis are those who have minimal knowledge of politics over the last 30 to 35 years.

      I also forgot that Barr should have appointed a special prosecutor to look at the Hunter laptop. The fib had it in its possession in 2019. Unlike the Russian hoaxer, They knew it was real.

      There are numerous felonies by crack rock on the laptop and money laundered to the big guy.

      Barr seems even more incompetent than Sessions.

    616. jason says:

      I think trump can help,both mastriano and Oz since trump is plus 7 over Biden.”

      It’s a delicate balancing act.

      Oz needs the massive MAGA/rural/red county vote Mastriano is going to get. But without sacrificing the more moderate voters that he can also attract.

      Basically Oz needs Mastriano voters and Mastriano needs Oz voters.

      It is not easy but if they focus on Biden’s unpopularity and can hang him around Fetterman’s and Shapiro’s necks they can both win.

      Plus, DeSantis was actually on the ballot.

    621. jason says:

      Kelly accepted a debate with Masters in Az.

      Kelly is not that smart, Masters is really a sharp guy although prone to a few too libertarian theories.

      If he can stay on message and ignore the bait from whatever leftist will be moderating, he should be able to win the debate.

    622. NYCmike says:

      “How does a guy so well versed in politics over the last 30-35 years come up with the “DeSantis is a clown” analysis?””

      She fantasizes about TV serial murderer character Dexter killing white students that she feel are privileged and awful people in her elite school in NYC.

      She’s advocates for and sneaks radical lefty causes into the curriculum, including only inviting speakers to the school that are not conservatives.

      She says she disrupts wherever she can and encourages students to participate in liberal protests and then discusses with them social Justice in detention so she says detention is not punishment but an opportunity to convert.

      She should be fired!

      You know, Tg, I always wondered if Henry Fonda ever looked at Jane with contempt for her actions during Vietnam.

    634. Wes says:

      The concept of Dexter is that Dexter kills killers. He’d be more likely to kill radical homicidal leftists like those in Weather Underground than some preppy college kids.

      I could not imagine Henry Fonda giving aid to the enemy while prisoners of war suffered as Jane Fonda did.

    636. Tgca says:

      647

      These are not even college kids. The teacher was talking about kids in her school which is K thru 12.

      She is sickened by the white students who benefited from capitalism and fantasizes about them meeting the fate of a serial killer.

      I’m hoping she is fired!

      Now that this is public, how must her white students feel to know she fantasizes about their deaths simply because their parents could afford to send them to an elite school.

    637. GF says:

      “…how must her white students feel to know she fantasizes about their deaths simply because their parents could afford to send them to an elite school.”

      They probably think they deserve it, and hope that the assailant is a black or other BIPOC individual to close the circle of justice. Making the killer some form of LGBQWERTY would only sweeten their demise.

      Actually, it’s funny Jadon whines about Ukraine’s casualties which number in the low thousands of deaths when he wholeheartedly supports China whom:

      kill thousands annually to harvest their organs

      forces ABORTIONS on tens of millions of women

      forced sterilizations on thousands of Uyghurs

      released a plague on the world that has kill over 6 million

      steals American technology costing Americans billions

      Jadon is fine with all this in the name of thriving CAPITALISM so his investment portfolio can flourish but whines about Russia whose war on Ukraine can’t compare to the atrocities committed by China in sheer number.

      What’s a few million atrocities annually by China when you can grow your back account and use Pootin as a scapegoat.

      No HYPOCRISY there. Capitalism over human rights!

      Wow. Talk about shilling for Putin…

      Hey Putin, propaganda works.

      At least 15,000 Ukrainians have died, probably a lot more because some areas under Russian control cannot report casualties.

      How about at least 10 million people displaced and exiled.

      Whole cities bombed and shelled?

      Jadon refuses to admit China commits atrocities in the millions and kills more annually by far then the Russia-Ukraine war to date because he thinks it’s good to do business with China no matter how many people they kill.

      I would bet if China attacked Taiwan Jadon would excuse it away as to why we should not negatively impact our trading policy with China because of economic repercussions.

      I support true capitalism which is to grow and expand economies and reduce poverty and make life better for people. I do NOT support monopolistic capitals, which is based on greed and manipulating markets for profit that benefit the few like Jadon does.

      Jadon has been a China sycophant for years.

      Notice he never complained about the 6 million killed by China releasing the COVID virus on the world and then benefitting from it through supply chains.

      For Jadon, it’s always about the bottom line regardless of tje cost to society.

      Jadon shows his ignorance about nutrition as usual. This is the obese guy with heart disease who has to take medication and follows advice of quacks on the internet who lost their medical license and had to go through retraining and practicing under qualified doctors after he admitted fault in legal proceedings.

      A human diet is most beneficial when it contains 50% to 65% carbs, 15% to 30% protein, and 25% to 35% fat. This is ideal for most humans. My diet this AM was 27% protein, 50% carbs, and 23% fat, within the desired range and included necessary fiber as a requirement to keep the GI system operating as needed, which by the way is one of the major areas for immunity.

      Too much protein causes damage to kidneys and a host of medical conditions including organ deterioration.

      Too little carbs causes ketosis and malfunction of much of the body including the brain and heart. Excessive ketosis will eventually kill you.

      Too much fat causes inflammation and a host of diseases.

      High meat and salt diets cause heart disease, strokes, inflammation, and a host of other diseases. Meat was meant to be eaten in moderation and not as a main staple of the human caloric intake, and balanced with grains, fruits, and veggies. Excessive salty and greasy meat eaters have the highest risks of cancer and heart disease and die earlier than most other groups, especially due to obesity related issues.

      Humans are omnivores and need complex carbs to survive for various reasons including fruits and vegetables for vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Low keto diets are dangerous and should only be used under medically supervised conditions for extended periods.

      My diet is properly balanced and by proof, my blood tests periodically show I have excellent balance for my age group with ideal cholesterol and sugar levels and no other signs of organ abnormalities or deficiencies. My heart and blood pressure levels are excellent and near competitive athletic levels. I recently had a heart echo gram and stress test and the cardiologist determined I was in not good but EXCELLENT cardiac condition. Considering I walk 5 to 7 miles daily, and have a balanced diet, it is not a surprise.

      Jadon can not say that about his health with his unhealthy high greasy and salty protein, abnormally low carb diet that is slowly poisoning his body.

      Anyone consuming more than 40% in protein in their diet long-term is IGORENT and harming their body because at that point, protein oxidizes and does not contribute to muscle mass and can have the opposite effect if deteriorating muscle for energy.

      Complex carbs are essential for brain activity and the reason we need them in the recommended range for the human body since it is the brain’s main source of food and the brain consumes the most energy in the running the body. Without sufficient carbs, the brain starts to starve and die as the rest of the body starts to deteriorate.

      Too bad Jadon never studied anatomy or nutrition, as he would know these very simple rules of nutrition and body function and maybe he would not have to take heart medication.

    678. Tgca says:

      691

      Who is deflecting?

      You refuse to acknowledge the points because you can’t.

      Are you ok with China enslaving over a million and killing tens of thousands annually?

      Are you ok with China’s dangerous and illegal experiments resulting in 6 million worldwide deaths?

      Compare the deaths caused by Russia and China the lat few years and then tell us which are more serious?

    679. Tgca says:

      690

      So Jadon supports China enslaving over a million in labor and concentration camps and killing tens of thousands annually for their organs or because of their religion, not to mention millions killed due to COVID and forced ABORTION all in the name of it will make then better CAPITALISTS.

      FUNNY! That’s not what I learned in grad school when I got my MBA. I guess CAPITALISM has EVOLVED.

    680. Bitterlaw says:

      We should ask Walt what he eats. It is obviously a successful diet.

    681. Tgca says:

      695

      It’s not generally what you eat but the volume of it and consistency of what you eat.

      A diet of moderate red meat intake and limiting high levels of grease, fat, and salt balanced with complex carbs and good fruits and veggies is the best formula for humans.

      That alone won’t guarantee you a long healthy life because there are other environmental and genetic considerations, but all else equal, it is the most ideal and superb human ratio for good health.

      There are many being kept alive with drugs and machines into their 70s and 80s that are merely existing and otherwise would die but I don’t consider that quality of life.

    682. Tgca says:

      Ok.

      Time to do other things now that I’ve schooled Jadon on good nutrition and the evils of China.

      Later ladies.

    683. jason says:

      maybe he would not have to take heart medication.”

      I have never taken heart medication, as far as I know I don’t have any heart disease. I bet Tgca would puke his guts out if he went out hunting with me in the hills of PA, he would give up after half an hour of rough terrain.

      I take a statin for high total cholesterol, which supposedly is hereditary in my family, although my HDL is excellent.

      However, since Tgca is always sick and I am always healthy, I think his very high sugar, very high carb, and very low protein diet probably has a lot to do with his illnesses.

      The proof is in the pudd….huh, in the bacon.

      Nah, but I do think a freer and more open and more capitalist system in China is the only way you will curb human rights abuses.

      Unilaterally trying to isolate China economically, when other countries will just fill in the vacuum, just hurts the US economy and just taxes the lowest income Americans.

      Fortunately, no Republican or Democrat administration is going to stop trading with China. You read it here first.

      China has consumer market of 1.5 billion people, roughly 20% of the world’s population.

      Nobody is going to commit economic malpractice by ignoring this market.

      Not funny or inconsistent at all. I don’t approve of Trump’s isolationism and protectionism or his stupid tariffs and trade wars. Read my posts over the last 6 years and that should be pretty obvious even for a moron like you.

      However, his simplistic adoration of the failed AFL-CIO agenda of the last 70 years does attract blue collar votes, especially in the rust belt and upper midwest. The reasons jobs ended or migrated to other countries are diverse and complex, and the unions themselves bear a lot of the blame, but it is undeniable Trump successfully tapped into this frustration and was able to take away a lot of blue collar votes that Obama won in 2008 and 2012.

      Neville Allen is too stupid to understand that I might acknowledge Trump’s appeal to working class voters while at the same time being against a trade policy based on stupid tariffs and trade wars.

      I am not surprised, he is probably one of the stupidest posters here, and with all the competition he should feel proud of himself.

      Chilean voters reject new socialist constitution:

      “36-year-old President Gabriel Boric, himself an ardent socialist, was a vocal supporter of the proposed constitution, but his poll numbers have been dropping steadily ever since he took office. Those numbers were reflected in the final vote last night. With 99% of the votes having been counted, the people of Chile rejected the socialist document by a more than twenty-point margin. The socialist faction quickly conceded defeat and agreed that they would need to go back to the drawing board and develop a constitution that would garner broad support.”

      San Bernardino County is considering the option of leaving California:

      “On the Nov. 8 ballot, the Fair-Share Initiative will give San Bernardino County voters an opportunity to direct the Board of Supervisors to determine whether our communities are getting our fair share of state resources and to pursue means of ensuring that our county gets the most for our tax dollars.

      This ballot measure has received a lot of attention from across the country because it asks if one of the strategies the county should consider to attain fiscal equity should include secession from California by forming a new state or by joining a neighboring state. This option would be very difficult to achieve, and all five supervisors truly love calling California our home.”

      Will say it again, I am not comfortable with voting for a president who is approaching 80 years of age. Several days ago Trump declared himself the duly elected President, and wanted Biden to step aside (however he would have settled for a new election).

      Now, Trump stated at his rally that he is already having meetings at the White House:

      “At a Saturday rally, former US President Donald Trump stated that Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg visited the White House to have dinner with him ‘last week’.

      It should be noted that he has been out of the office for more than a year and a half. He even stated that Zuckerberg congratulated him for being number one on Facebook. He made this statement despite the fact that he has been suspended from Facebook.”

      The socialist Democrats war on the automobile, as exhibited in California by new law requiring all cars be electric in the future, is in effect a war on the middle class and working people:

      “There is little in domestic policy in which there is greater agreement than the need to eliminate poverty. Superior mobility, which is provided by the automobile, both in the United States and around the world is one key. David King of Arizona State University, Michael Smart of Rutgers University and Michael Manville of UCLA found that US households without access to vehicles have a 70% greater chance of being in poverty than those who have access to vehicles.
      In a 2014 study (Driving to Opportunity), Rolf Pendall of the Urban Institute found a “positive role” of automobiles in outcomes for low-income households. Pendall wrote in CityLab, “The importance of automobiles arises not due to the inherent superiority of driving, but because public transit systems in most metropolitan areas are slow, inconvenient, and lack sufficient metropolitan-wide coverage to rival the automobile.””

      Actually, I had very mild symptoms after the 1st two days, as my body rejected the virus with a fever the 1st two days. My immune system tends to be over reactive and strong, hence, the quick response, and the reason I rarely get sick like the rest of you peasants.

      Most people I know had worse symptoms that lingered. I had mostly an intermittent minor sore throat and dry cough that impacted my sleep and I did not lose my sense of taste or smell or get the aches and pains and run down feeling most get.

      The virus usually takes a good 2 to 3 weeks to work it’s way through after initial exposure, depending on meds you take so my timing was normal.

      Paxlovid is a new emergency drug that tends to reduce serious illness and hospitalization by like 90% but it also has about a 20% COVID recurrence rate in a few days with more minor symptoms, probably because the dosage period is too short to stop all the viral replication.

      The problem is, the Dems don’t really have anybody good to replace him, Connor Lamb maybe, but he is damaged goods after losing big to Fetterman and calling Fetterman a socialist.

      786: Jason, I agree with Biden’s speech. He did not refer to political opponents. He referred to those who espouse anti-democratic views and who continue to undermine faith in our electoral process. Those are MAGA-Republicans. And those, I oppose completely.

      Like all the Dems who disputed Trump’s victory in 2016? Or Stacey Abrams who still thinks she won the election for governor.

      MAGA is not anti-democratic, quite the opposite. And questioning the results in extremely close races with a lot of election issues is not “undermining the electoral process”. Unless you want fraud to always prevail.

    778. jason says:

      Paul’s initial reaction to the speech was the right one. A disgusting anti-democratic rant.

      Now that he has read all the left wing commentary that thinks the fascistic speech was good, he is toeing the party line.

      Unprincipled hack.

      Tgca. I had no vaccine. I take elderberry and zinc daily. I caught Covid and only knew about it because my mom got it and my son made me get tested as I was to babysit my granddaughter. Looking back I had some excess drainage. By the way I think paxlovid now has a rate of reinfection of over 40%. Another Pfizer lie. And if you get the vaccine you have almost a 100% chance of not catching Covid, best lie of the decade. If you are not obese do not have diabetes and do not have a reduced immune system and are under 70 think hard about not getting the vaccine.

      Sister Toldjah

      “The fact of the matter is that it’s ok to question election results. It’s okay to believe an election wasn’t decided fairly. It’s even okay to litigate election results you disagree with provided you have the receipts to back it up. But we were told even before the 2016 election that it was wrong to merely question results, that it was wrong to suggest you might not be willing to accept them. That it was a “threat to democracy” to do so.

      Hillary Clinton said so herself.

      But not long after she lost, she got busy claiming hers was stolen as a result of non-existent “Trump/Russia” collusion. Stacey Abrams stated without evidence that Brian Kemp “rigged” the system against her and has – to this day – never conceded she lost.

      These two have been treated with the utmost reverence and kid gloves by the same Democrats and “concerned” media types who think Sens. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz should be expelled from the Senate and that Donald Trump should never be allowed to hold office again, all because they voiced objections to certifying the 2020 election.

      This is why no self-respecting Republican gives a flying rip about what Joe Biden’s party and the mainstream media say about “respecting democracy” or whatever their latest talking point is. Democrats never hold themselves to their own (double) standards, so why play by their twisted rules? Answer: You don’t.”

    801. Cash Cow TM says:

      Cow has just uncovered the Dems dastardly plan in the Nov. 2022 election.

      The paper describing the plan was wrapped around three cigars and was carelessly dropped by a Democrat courier.

      The Dems figure that the U.S. Senate is now safe
      for them.

      The plan is to implement the Biden 2020 election strategy to win Dem control in the House of Rep.
      **********************************************
      Here is the plan:

      1. for the next two months, put a muzzle on Pelosi, AOC, Ilmar, and the other numerous Dem whack jobs currently in the House. And Sen. Chuckie Shumer too.

      2. Feed the MSM allies lots of negatory stories on far-right members of congress like Margery Taylor Green, etc. and have them run with those stories between now and election.

      3 A. implement the Biden 2020 successful strategy of harvesting votes from nursing homes in key House districts. You know the drill. Get their D mules to get 10s of thousands of Straight D votes from nursing home residents who are mentally incompetent, do not know what year it is, who is president or in which direction the sun rises. And to again have 92% of higher turnout in the heavily D cities.

      3 B. mine the mail in ballots, just like they did in 2020 GE. So you will again have thousands of 120-year-old people on the non-cleansed stat voter rolls who “vote”, people who moved out of the state or district who will “vote”, people who show up to vote on election day who will be told “you (or someone?) already voted by mail in ballot”, people who are registered in more than one state will be voting in big numbers in both states, etc.

      4. the D House candidates lay low and paint themselves as “moderates” who distance themselves “officially” from Biden. (until after the election)

      5. Biden does head fake on the Republicans by going around the country campaigning for Dem Senate candidates. The (stupid) Republican high ups will dump even more money and attention to the Senate races and focus their attention there and short shrift the Republican House candidates.

      ###########################################
      When the dust settles after the Nov. election, the public will be SHOCKED to learn that–due to EXCEPTIONALLY large turnout in metropolitan
      areas where 92% of all registered voters voted (and voted HEAVILY for the D candidates)–the Dems RETAIN control of the Senate, AND retain control of the House.

      ************************************
      Then ENACT ALL THE BIDEN BUILD BACK BETTER, BI!CH.

    802. Albertus Magnus says:

      Nobody cares enough about Hunter Biden to cast a vote on what he did or didnt do. Those that care already are voting against the DEMS.

      Nobody care about the the documents that Trump had at Mar-a-logo. Those that do are already voting DEM.

      The issues that WILL decide the election: inflation, student loan forgiveness, immigration, abortion and crime.

      Any time spent on other issues is just white noise and is either the result of people not understanding what matters to voters OR people trying to distract with side issues to get pissed off people to send them $$$.

    803. Cash Cow TM says:

      Oh, and page 2 of the Dem election strategy says they need to:

      1.keep Trump on the front burner since his negatives are nearly as high as Biden’s

      2. keep Jan 6 on the front burner

      3. keep “election deniers” on the front burner

      4. Play the fascist card, the racist card, the anti-woman card Over and over and over and over.

      5. Divert attention to all of #4 above when anybody brings up the various foreign affairs debacle and crisis, the inflation crisis, the energy crisis, the covid crisis, the monkey pox crisis, the rampant crime crisis, the supply chain crisis, the Hunter Biden crisis, the low trust in government crisis, the educIom crisis, the illegal immigration crisis–where in the last 12 months enough illegals THAT WE KNIW OF have come in that collectivlly would be bigger populationthan 15 individual state populations.

    809. DW says:

      The probably reason for the FBI raid was that Trump found and kept compromising photos that the Clintons lost under the white house bedroom bureau, and the Obamas never found them. One day Trump pulled out the bottom drawer, and these photos fell out underneath onto the floor, and he said, “Woah! Look what we have here! These are keepers!”

      I have not taken the vax and would not, as they have not done thorough testing and we now know, contrary to earlier belief, it impacts your cells in a way not expected for some and causes a host of disorders in the blood and heart.

      They have not tested it on people with various medical issues like neurological disorders to see how it impacts them either.

      They continue to misrepresent, lie, and deflect on the risks of the vax. They have no credibility on the issue.

      This is gubbermint at its worst. The truth will come out sooner or later. We know from history, health professionals, tje gubbermint, and scientists have misrepresented and lied about previous vaxes and drugs.

      805. Hugh

      I would also say it varies by people as well. Even healthy and young people without comorbidities can get very sick from COVID and die. Taking zinc, D3, and elderberry by itself won’t ward off COVID for most people.

      It depends on the viral level and type you are exposed to as well as anything else going on in your body at the time of exposure. I worked with a guy who was in his 30s and fit and got COVID early on and died, and he had no other comorbidities. It’s why you saw some young healthy people die as well.

      I take vitamin supplements daily including zinc, elderberry for years but that did not stop me from getting COVID after 2.5 years.

      I also know people who tested positive for COVID and never got sick but then got exposed to COVID much later on and got sick, though not hospitalized.

      It’s the luck of the draw. It’s like the flu or cold virus. Sometimes you get exposed and no reaction and other times you get exposed and get sick.

      Just like we should not listen to medical professionals like Dr. Fow-chee who was wrong on nearly everything about COVID, we should not listen to those pushing a natural immunity ONLY with just vitamins and food. Each case is unique and bad advice can come back to haunt you as a number have gotten sick and died from trying only natural remedies as well.

      The key is to catch it early and seek treatment including meds and OTC measures to fight flu-like symptoms to keep the virus from doing further damage.

      I know people who took Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine when they 1st got symptoms and had success though they still had flu-like symptoms but they bounced back quickly, usually within 2 or 3 days having the worst symptoms pass. Vitamins alone can’t do that.

    813. Phil says:

      Hear from Mitch?

      You must be kidding.

    814. Tgca says:

      I guess Paul thinks Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris are a threat to democracy because they both denied election outcomes.

      Pelosi does not think GWB won Ohio in 2004 which means he would not have had the EV to be re-elected.

      Harris questioned the voting machines and how they did not accurately count votes that lost Dems elections and claims Stacy Abrams lost due to voter suppression.

      A number of other Dems also fought against House certification of elections, claiming fraud and the rightful winner in 2000, 2004, and 2016.

      Does Paul agree all these Dems are a threat to democracy?

    815. Country Dick Montana says:

      And apparently Barr is not happy over Trump being granted a special master.

      Mitch and Bill Barr. Every Republican is better than any Democrat. Or so I have heard.

    816. Phil says:

      Mitch and Barr were happy about the raid on Trump and fine with Biden’s speech demonizing millions of Trump supporters as fascists and “threats to democracy”. Not a peep. They want their country club party back. Pisses them off that a bunch of working class rubes have any say in THEIR go along party. A bunch of elitist DC swamp creatures. Worthless.

    817. Tina says:

      Barr is an idiot.

      I have outlined the reasons why earlier in this thread.

      He did a sheotty job while AG.

    818. Wes says:

      So, Mitch McConnell, who grew up in a middle class family and nearly saw his family go destitute because of a polio infection that nearly cost him a leg, is pissed off at working class rubes.

      Sure. We’ll go with that.

      Alternately McConnell–who voted three times to acquit Trump of impeachment charges–could just not feel the need to weigh in on the Mar a Lago raid. Personally I think McConnell should say something, and I feel he’s engaging in political malpractice by not doing so. I see no evidence McConnell hates working class voters though. That’s an assertion without evidence

    819. Paul says:

      Jason Fraud can’t see the difference the reactions of Clinton in 2016 and Trump in 2020. Sorry Jason, you are an idiot and fraud.

      Trump is an evil curse on America. And will need to be stopped from destroying our democracy with the lies and deceit about the 2020 election.

    820. Paul says:

      Tgca: How the f&ck did either Kamala or Nancy Pelosi behave in any way as despicably anti-American as Trump has done.

    821. Paul says:

      Tgca: was there an effort to undermine democracy in 2004 or 2015 by democrats. No. Is there such an effort by the traitor Trump. The one who should be removed from the living.

    822. Paul says:

      MAGA Republicans can die and burn in hell for all eternity.

    823. Cash Cow TM says:

      Some think Trump was the smartest person ever to be elected president.

      But Trump appointed/chose a lot of people who the Trump adorers now say were terrible.

      Pence
      Sessions
      Barr
      Scaramucci
      Kelly
      Bolton
      etc.
      etc.
      etc.

      Funny how the smartest man ever picked so many bad people.

    824. Phil says:

      I don’t care how he grew up. I’m interested in how he is now as “GOP leader” of the Senate. Doesn’t feel the need to weigh in? Why the hell not? Pretty sure I know. Not much of a leader. Period. As far as his voting against ridiculous impeachments of a Republican President that’s a pretty damn low bar. About all we’ve gotten from Mitch this cycle is his statement saying how bad GOP senatorial candidates are. Personally, I’d say they stack up pretty good next to candidates like Fetterman and Warnock but maybe that’s just me. The guy is an establishment GOP DC insider who has no use for little people like me except at election time – and this based on crickets and criticizing Trump candidates can’t be troubled to “weigh in”. There is a reason his approval numbers among the rank in file GOP voters is abysmal. He’s earned those numbers.

    825. Cash Cow TM says:

      The Dem election strategists are gleeful that
      Trump is getting even more involved in the 2022 elections. Orange man good for motivating the base.

      And happy that Trump got court to agree to appoint a Grand Master on the Mary Largo raid. Prolong keeping this Trump-related matter on the front burner some more weeks.

      Nothing better than to have Trump front and center to point at when people criticize Biden.

    826. Country Dick Montana says:

      Well the site has gone Gordy on me. I can’t figure out the algorithm to get a post.

      So I leave. With this. Paul, take your meds and get help.

    827. Phil says:

      Shut up, Paul. This is an adult site. Go back to your legos.

    828. Phil says:

      Except that Trump’s running better than the generic Rs….so he needs to be involved – turnout, turnout, turnout.

    829. Wes says:

      We’ll disagree there, Phil.

      I’m sure if McConnell really felt nothing but contempt for middle class people, someone would have used that effectively against him in either a primary or general. In fact Matt Bevin tried it against him in 2014 and lost to him by 25 points in the primary. Ann Coulter also used that line of attack against him in her attempt to boost Amy McGrath’s attempt to beat him in 2020. Kentuckians clearly didn’t buy it since McConnell beat McGrath by 20 points.

      McConnell has done a number of stupid things in his tenure in Washington going back to his lazy stewardship of the NRSC in 1998 and 2000, but realistically without outright evidence, I find it easier to chalk his boneheaded moves up to incompetence rather than malice.

      People like Chuck Hagel who have become overtly liberal Democrats in all but name though are clearly contemptuous of those who don’t espouse their worldview.

    830. Paul says:

      I despise Kari Lake with everything in me. She is an ugly anti-American devil-worshiper who must be eliminated.

      Pat “all gun owners are criminals” Toomey has this right.

      “As someone who served in the United States Senate for almost 12 years now, I have a really good understanding of how the place works,” Toomey said. “If John Fetterman were elected to the Senate, and he’s not able to communicate, if he’s not able to engage with the press, if he’s not able to engage with his colleagues, he would not be able to do the job. It’s just not possible.” …

      Toomey pointed to a recent MSNBC interview in which Fetterman said that he was “feeling fantastic” and that the only lingering effect was missing a word or two or mushing two together.

      “If that’s all true, then why won’t you agree to debate Dr. Oz?” Toomey asked. “He’s either not as well as he claims to be, or he’s afraid to be called out for the radical policies he supports.”

    839. Wobbles says:

      Seems fine to me.

      “Please understand…the stakes in this race, send me to Washington DC, to send, so I can work with Senator Casey…and I can champion the union way of life in…Jersey…excuse me, in DC…thank you, thank you very much, and it’s an honor…I live 8 minutes away from here…and when I leave tonight I got…3 miles away Doctor Oz in his mansion in New Jersey…you’ve got a friend and you’ve got an ally, send me to Washington DC…thank you steelworkers.”

      Biden and friends say questioning and challenging election results is a threat to democracy.

      Yet in 2000, 2004, and 2016, numerous DemonCrats challenged the election results or tried to stop certification in the House including Dem leadership like Pelosi.

      Kamala Harris challenged the GA Gubbernor election and claimed Stacey Abrams was cheated from a win.

      Schumer also stood on the steps of the Supreme Court and threatened conservative justices by name and then an assassination by a Dem follower was thwarted by police.

      GOP Congressmen were targeted by an assassin, a Bernie Sanders supporter, at a baseball practice game and Congressman Scalise almost died and was hospitalized with gunshot wounds.

      Do you wish me to continue outlining how refusing to accept election results and trying to assassinate conservative justices and Congressmen are a threat to democracy or do you believes those are not threats?

    845. jason says:

      Some think Trump was the smartest person ever to be elected president.”

      I have yet to see anybody here say that.

      I would say he is smart enough to become a billionaire and to get elected President. He is smart enough to know that to win he had to forge a different coalition from the one Rs traditionally ran with. He was smart enough to know that if he let the MSM campaign against him go unanswered he was not going to finish his term.

      He wasn’t smart enough on a lot of appointments. He wasn’t smart enough to foresee the impact of the pandemic on the economy and the extent to which the Dems would game the election with the pandemic as an excuse. He wasn’t smart enough to know that instead of debating Biden and Wallace together on every question, he should have limited his answers to repeat his accomplishments and let Biden finish his sentences and show his incoherence.

    846. Dylan says:

      He wasn’t smart enough to devise an effective response to anticipated mail in shenanigans and other voting efforts that fall within the general umbrella of “suspicious” He certainly knew the deluge was coming

    847. jason says:

      Well, hindsight is always 20/20, I get that.

      But in states with either R legislative majorities (PA, WI, MI) and/or governors (GA, AZ) Trump should have exerted pressure to push back on the “emergency rules” that favored the shenanigans and opened the door to illegal ballots being counted.

      In the end, about 42,000 votes in 3 states, or 120k votes in 4 states if you include PA, decided the election.

      We may disagree on the level of fraud, but no one disputes the Dems gamed the election in these states, and without these changes they would not have won GA, WI, AZ or PA. Rs did not have any influence in the NV electoral rules so I didn’t include Bidens narrow 30k win there.

      But the fact is Rs in PA, GA, WI and AZ were “shocked and awed” into approving the measures that cost Trump the election and the GOP the senate, because for sure Purdue would have won without the need for a runoff.

      In response to my post below from post 61, CT Gubbernor, state AG, and Senator Blumenthal all calling for investigation of this public school educator caught on video openly discriminating in hiring practices in violation of state law. He has been placed on leave and now under investigation by state AG.

      This smug white woke bigot could now go to jail if indicted and convicted of breaking various state laws.

      Will these wokesters ever learn? This guy is now in for a world of hurt publicly and his reputation is shot.

      The politicians are doing CYA now that the video has gone viral and is covered by local news. They’re horrified by his bigotry and bragging he doesn’t hire Catholics, conservatives, and those over age 30 and has methods for fishing answers from them to discriminate in hiring.


      Post 61

      Public school assistant principle caught on tape admitting he won’t hire conservatives, Catholics, people over 30, and that he looks to groom kids into thinking progressively by using tactics to get around the law and mislead parents.

      He has violated a number of state and federal discrimination laws.

      I hope he is prosecuted and imprisoned, and his life is destroyed as an example to others.

      This is an example of collusion among gubbermint employees using their power to break the law.

      His vile comments about religious people, especially Catholics are nothing more than pure hatred and bigotry. Saying you won’t hire Catholics is as vile as saying you refuse to hire AA.

      More of this needs to happen; time to move the production of U.S. tech out of China:

      “Major U.S. technology companies have begun moving production of their products from China to neighboring Asian countries. This was reported by the U.S. edition of The New York Times on Sep. 1.

      These companies fear that basing a significant portion of their supply chain in China could draw them into the epicenter of the escalating conflict between China and the U.S, over Taiwan. But for now, China remains the main producer of consumer electronics.

      Moving forward, components of new Apple and Google smartphones will be produced in India and Vietnam. Apple produces iPads in the north of Vietnam, Amazon creates Fire TV in India, while Microsoft this year delivered Xbox game consoles from Ho Chi Minh City. Several years ago, all these products were built in China.”

      833. I am not anti vaccine. I just think people should understand if they are at low risk of serious health problems if they catch covid the risk of covid may be less than the risk from the vaccine. Healthy people under 40 should generally avoid the vaccine. Under 18 and healthy, if the medical community cared about health, it would not allow the vaccine without a doctor’s permission.

    864. Tgca says:

      886. Hugh

      I did not say you are anti-vax. I don’t trust the vaxes myself since they did not sufficiently test them and they are associated with numerous deaths of otherwise healthy people.

      I just think people still have to take precautions like they do with any illness like the flu in crowded environments. When I worked in NYC, every year I would get sick with something I caught from some liberal NYer but then I did not get sick for years when I left there. That was the case with almost everyone I worked with there too.

      You just can’t always avoid these things in very crowded environments…and vitamins alone won’t do the trick either. If you get a strong viral load or exposed for a period of time, you will probably become sick and vitamins are useless once you’re sick with flu-like symptoms. At that point, you need real meds to fight off the infection or it will take much longer to heal.

    865. DW says:

      I am not anti-vax. But there is no vaccine for Covid. There are very risky shots they can give you that won’t keep you from catching Covid. But if there was a true vaccine for Covid that was proven to be safe, I would be all for it.

      Bannon is being hounded for his political beliefs.

      There is no doubt that getting COVID and surviving it without long term effects is better than taking the vaccine and not getting COVID or getting it anyway. You develop better immunity and you don’t incur the risks of the vaccine itself.

      Everyone has to evaluate their own risks and make their own decisions. I certainly would not vaccinate my children unless they had serious underlying conditions.

      I only vaccinated because it was a pre-requisite for international travel. Despite never masking unless mandated at a medical facility or airport and taking dozens of flights to COVID infested countries I never got COVID. Whether it was the vaccine or natural immunity that has protected me I don’t know.

    871. Tgca says:

      So I was wrong. My friend who is sick with COVID has had it three times not twice even though he’s vaxed with all the boosters, as the incompetent Dr. Fow-chee suggested.

      People vary due to exposure levels as well as how your body is feeling at the moment of exposure.

      Why is it sometimes everyone around you gets a cold and you don’t but at other times you can get a cold from one person. Our bodies do not always operate at the same level.

      You could be mildly worn down or sleep deprived without noticeable symptoms and being exposed during that time can be when you’re most vulnerable to be impacted.

      I avoided it for over 2.5 years even though many around me got it. I think a lot of it has to do with the luck of the draw. Luckily, my symptoms were like a mini flu so I did not really suffer, though the meds totally dried me out and made it difficult to sleep and I believe helped contribute to the lingering minor dry cough I had.

      Dave has a job and a family. I bet he could care less about what Neville Allen posts or doesn’t post.

      Don’t use them or figure out which is the offending one and you will never be “moderated”.

      “they are moderated if they run counter to his belief systems.”

    881. jason says:

      The fact is, Dave does not censor the comments at all. He has banned a few people like Eric Dond-ero
      and Pete Wilson by request for really over the top st-ff (yes, Donde-ro and st-ff will get you moderated, so will cas-no…although maybe st-ff is no longer a problem).

      But otherwise, even trolls are allowed. Even flaming anti-semites like Bunu are allowed. Attacking Dave for not being conservative enough is allowed.

      He certainly doesn’t care about any “topics against his beliefs”, and he certainly doesn’t give a flying f–k what Neville Allen posts.

    882. Bitterlaw says:

      Having a family and a job should keep people away from HHR? Who knew?

      To be fair, Jason, without a registration system, Dave can’t ban Bunu. The Paulbot has IP-switching software to keep him from being banned.

      He successfully banned Pete Wilson and Donde-ro and Eph.

      Nonsense!

      People still get sick from COVID routinely and many die. It’s still in the top 4 leading cause of deaths in the US in 2022. The daily averages since March 2022 have varied from basically 400 to 600 after a high of 1,000 to 2,500 in early 2022 during the winter and it will ramp up again as the cold weather starts.

    892. Tgca says:

      Dave W. is part of the DEEP State. He has lured you all into a trap.

      When the Dems and RINOs finally take over, he will share the IP addresses of all HHR posters so they can be rounded up by Cheney/Hogan and their friends.

      Just you wait and see!

    893. jason says:

      Phil is right. Time to move on from COVID. That does not mean ignore it, people still need to be treated, but let’s no longer use it as an excuse for big government intervention.

      Covid has now become endemic. Several hundred people a day die from the flu too. And probably most of the COVID deaths now are among people with high co-morbidities for which COVID is most likely a contributing factor and not the cause.

    894. Phil says:

      Hillary not running? America is heartbroken.

      Actually, take a look at the Democratic clown list of potential candidates. Biden isn’t running. Kamala is a disaster. Buttigieg? LOL. Newsome couldn’t carry any swing states and the Democrats know it.

      Nope. Democrats will not nominate any of those clowns on the list. They are very strategic. My prediction? It will go the same way it went in 2020 when the party leaders cleared the field for Biden when it looked like Bernie was going to get the nomination after he won the Nevada caucuses. He was a GE loser and Obama and the leftist leaders who run the Party knew it. Obama will pick up the phone like he did in 2020, clear the field, and the puppeteers will pick someone that they believe can win the GE.

      My guess? Someone like “moderate” Senator Amy Klobuchar. She played ball last cycle and dropped out in favor of Biden when Obama told her to. She played ball before and they think they can sell her. Checks all their boxes – did reasonably well in her primary run in 2020, woman, from the midwest rust belt, moderate (yeah right, but she’ll be labeled one in every story the MSM writes about her. It’s how they’ll sell her)…she’s my guess.

      Democrats are very pragmatic when it comes to General elections. In the end they know it’s about getting elected. That’s their hurdle. Once in it doesn’t matter who the person is. Whomever it is will toe the leftist line just like “moderate” Biden did.

      Klobachor or someone like her that isn’t on the present list of losers everyone is now talking about…and she or someone like her will be selected. That’s my prediction.

    895. jason says:

      Donde-ro seems to have gone on to different things, all references to him are old and his old website is no longer active.

      But you can still read about his old antics at ballotpedia.

      “In his article, Dond-ero writes that Paul “is most certainly intolerant of Spanish and those who speak strictly Spanish in his presence,” “Anti-Israel, and Anti-Israeli in general,” and “personally uncomfortable around homosexuals.”

      Later that day, Paul spokesman Jesse Benton stated “Eric Dond-ero is a disgruntled former staffer who was fired for performance issues. He has zero credibility and should not be taken seriously.” Dond-ero denied being fired and threatened to take Paul to court over the allegation. He says he resigned in 2003 over Paul’s policy toward Iraq.

      Donde-ro launched a campaign for Paul’s congressional seat in 2007, referring to Paul as a “complete nutcase” and calling his foreign policy views “near-treasonous.” Mark Elam, Paul’s spokesman at the time, referred to Donde-ro as “looney-tunes” while Paul called him “a disgruntled former employee who was fired.”

    896. jason says:

      I got “censored” until I went through that article and edited every “Dond-ero” on it.

    897. jason says:

      Klobachor or someone like her”

      Yeah, maybe like Klobuchar.

    898. Phil says:

      Ok, then. Wear a mask the rest of your life. Social distance and isolate. Get booster after booster forever. Hell, move to a blue state….or better yet, China. Knock yourself out. Me, I’ve moved on. The pandemic is over.

    899. Tgca says:

      916

      Agreed!

      But you can’t dismiss it medically. It’s still a major leading cause of death that needs to be treated and managed from a public policy perspective, and I’m not talking about shutting down the country either.

      Most people who die from cancer die from an infection caused by their weakened immunity and not from the cancer cells themselves so it’s analogous to the impact of COVID on people with comorbidities.

    900. Tgca says:

      921

      If we should move on COVID, then we need to move on from cancer and a host of other diseases that kill less people annually. Don’t worry about people smoking or taking drugs because it’s not a pandemic and it’s not a leading cause of death.

      It’s just nonsense to ignore a serious medical issue when it’s still a leading cause of death. We don’t ignore these things. We find ways to treat them and educate people to risks.

      No one is talking about going back to 2020.

      STOP being melodramatic!

    901. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      916. The irony is people are still dying of COVID despite the hype over what are called “vaccines”. Rather than preventing infection or illness, the claim is that vaccines have some sort of therapeutic effect — which seems to end fairly quickly as boosters are being constantly produced and recommended. Meanwhile the side effects, including creating heart issues in young people, are being ignored and minimalized. History will look back on this as a major health care debacle. Add to that the U.S. health official in charge of the pandemic has never fully revealed his involvement with the Chinese health institute where the virus may have originated; and that the President during the epidemic was a total dullard. People will look back and shake their head in disbelief.

    902. DW says:

      I personally know of a lady who, though elderly, was in good health. She got the covid shot, the one that comes in part 1 and part 2, and immediately after part 2, she developed serious heart issues, declined rapidly, and died in 2 weeks.

      I also know of a middle-aged man who had no health problems, got the covid shots, and within a week was in the hospital with heart issues. Fully recovered, but had quite a scare.

    903. Bitterlaw says:

      We used to have an HHR physician, Pitchaboy. He was an oncologist but was handling a lot of serious COVID cases in hospitals when it began. I hope he is doing well. I think he left when people got annoyed when he did not back all of the alternate treatments Trump was pushing. To be fair, he did have an “I’m a doctor and you’re not” attitude. But he was a doctor and we’re not.

    904. Phil says:

      I’m not the one being melodramatic.

      People still die from it. So? People are dying from the flu. If I get in my car I might die in an automobile accident.

      Covid is now polling less than 2% on the list of issues. I guess the other 98% just don’t get it.

    905. jason says:

      f we should move on COVID, then we need to move on from cancer ”

      Nah. Cancer is not an endemic infectious disease.

      The point about COVID is that it has become endemic and should be treated as such.

      We don’t shut the country down or mask people or mandate vaccines for the flu.

      COVID should be treated and investments should continue into developing vaccines against it, just like the flu.

      But it is time to move away from the hysteria.

      Phil’s comment is essentially correct.

      Time to move on from COVID.

    906. Tgca says:

      926

      No disrespect to Pitch but in his defense, like 98% of doctors take that attitude when you question them. It’s part of their training. I think that it’s required they take a course in “God Complex and Arrogance.” I know a number of nurses over the years that always complained about this trait in doctors, as well as a good friend of mine that was a pharmaceutical rep dealing with doctors all day.

      Dr. Fow-chee was also trained as a medical doctor and was completely incompetent and routinely wrong so there’s that too. I suspect Pitch is not incompetent or wrong as often as Dr. Fow-chee.

      I also hope Pitch is doing well.

    907. Tgca says:

      928

      I totally agree on the “hysteria.” It should never have lasted beyond a month, as most deaths were in certain groups that could have been better isolated and treated, as they were easily identified up front.

      The problem is, Dr. Fow-chee and friends did not want to give up their 15 minutes of fame and milked it for everything, including LYING and purposely misleading gubbermint officials and the public. That is why I believe he should be prosecuted. It was all self-serving for him and a select few others.

      However, COVID still is a major leading cause of death and the right resources should be put to it. It’s just as deadly to some as cancer and heart disease, the other two leading causes of death. In fact, more deadly than all cancers individually since they are all lumped into one big group with the biggest killer being lung cancer which COVID deaths surpass.

    908. Tgca says:

      Many cancers and most heart disease are preventable or can be reduced significantly through certain age groups. But it’s nearly impossible to get people to change their lifestyle over a long period of time to significantly reduce the risks so until we have better cures and treatments, they will remain a major leading cause of death.

    909. Tgca says:

      We went from Trump stealing documents to sell to foreign agents to nuclear secrets being hacked by Russians from his closet to obstruction of Justice to now getting CIA agents killed?

      MSNBC’s @JoyAnnReid says there could be a connection between classified documents at Mar-a-Lago and CIA assets who were killed in 2021: “They did happen at a time when Trump did have custody of some really sensitive information”

      “Quite the contrary, Johnson announced an $800 million energy investment by the government in nuclear power; mildly rubbished the reintroduction of “fracking” for natural gas that his successor, Liz Truss, has promised; and strongly defended his “Deep Green” record of transitioning from fossil fuels to “renewables” like wind and sun in pursuit of the goal of Net-Zero carbon emissions by 2050.”

      -Agree that nuclear should be a big part of the future, but why – WHY? – would the government be doing the “investment”?

      I know but the same with cancer. Most dying of cancer die from infections or heart failure and not the cancer cells themselves overwhelming their bodies as the cancer decimates the immune system indirectly.

      The point is, people with comorbidities are dying sooner and faster due to the impacts of COVID decimating their immune system and ability to normally fight off viruses.

      Many obese or those with diabetes or lung issues could live years more if not for the COVID speeding up death. Same with cancer, many live with cancer for years unless an infection or virus gets into them.

      Actually, Bitter, Pitch left after I mocked him for his spectacularly long list of bad political predictions when Glenn Youngkin was running for Governor last year.

      He accused me of lying years ago about his not holding to the terms of a bet he made with MD. Of course I don’t even remember ever discussing his bet with MD, but since any statement I made about it would have been based on what MD himself said, Pitch probably was taking things up with the wrong person.

      Anyway, Pitch called me “trailer park trash”–hilarious since I’ve never lived in a trailer–and left in a huff because I mocked him for saying Democrats would steal the election for Terry McAuliffe and told him his prediction sealed victory for Youngkin.

      I hope he’s doing well, but he was super thin-skinned. He’ll probably return sometime though as he’s taken sabbaticals before. Seriously, if you can’t take ribbing on this site about bad predictions–such as I’ve had to take since I predicted Hillary would beat Trump–maybe leaving is the right thing to do.

      There is a crack, a division if you will, between two large groups on the whacky left.

      Group 1: The globalist de-population movement. This group is currently leveraging the stooges in the Green movement to bring about catastrophic reductions in food to maintain life, and fuel to stay warm. The goal is the killing of millions around the world to reduce the population, and at the same time unite the world under one government to control everything so the population will never get out of hand again.

      Group 2: The globalist space travel movement. This group wants to unite the world under one flag so that all resources are committed to the sciences that will enable human-kind to escape the solar system and find somewhere better to live. The resources needed will impoverish everyone, but everyone will be needed to pull this off.

      And here is the problem. Group 2 cannot have Group 1 offing too many people or there will not be the human resources available to pull of the escape from earth. Group 1 has no intention of fleeing to outer space, and the more people there are here, the more difficult they will be to manage. While both groups want one-world rule, it is for different purposes. But worldwide enslavement and poverty are the goals of both groups.

    957. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Tucker Carlson needs to denounce those evil Ukrainians again, not only are they corrupt thugs, their sneaky too. As Russian bloggers are pointing out:

      “Russian milbloggers voiced concern that this Ukrainian counterattack seeks to cut ground lines of communication (GLOCs) to Russian rear areas in Kupyansk and Izyum, which would allow Ukrainian troops to isolate the Russian groupings in these areas and retake large swaths of territory. These milbloggers used largely panicked and despondent tones, acknowledged significant Ukrainian gains, and claimed that the Ukrainian counteroffensive in the south may be a distraction from the ongoing actions in Kharkiv Oblast, which they name as the main Ukrainian effort. The level of shock and frank discussion of Ukrainian successes by Russian milbloggers speaks to the scale of surprise achieved by Ukrainian forces, which is likely successfully demoralizing Russian forces. While it is unlikely that the southern counteroffensive and effort to attrit Russian forces in southern Ukraine is a feint for renewed operations in Kharkiv Oblast, Ukrainian forces likely took prudent advantage of a reallocation of Russian troops, equipment, and overall operational focus to launch localized counteroffensives toward critical points in Kharkiv Oblast.”

    958. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      982. Here is the lame excuse the German leader has given for not supplying tanks to the Ukraine:

      “On Tuesday, Scholz announced that Berlin would keep supporting Ukraine by working with its armaments industry but would not deliver armoured vehicles from its own stocks as it wants to avoid Russian aggression.”

      Of course the real reason is the Nord Stream pipeline. Trump was right it would allow Putin to blackmail the Germans, cutting off their natural gas. The Green Party plays a prominent role in the current coalition; wasn’t all the wind and solar the Germans installed over the past decade suppose to prevent the need to use natural gas? Perhaps they should not have turned their nuclear power off?

    959. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Scholz defense:

      “Scholz pushed back against such criticism, saying that the advanced howitzers Germany is providing are some of the world’s most advanced mobile artillery systems. Their delivery has taken time in part because Germany has had to train Ukrainian crews to use them.

      “I think it would be good if those who express their views on this or that issue spent a moment thinking about it first,” he said.

      Zelenskiy made clear in the interview that he believes Germany’s military support could have come faster.

      “To be honest, Germany joined a little later than some of our neighboring countries, as far as the arms deliveries were concerned. That’s a fact,” he said.”

      Recently I’ve sensed a shift in momentum in GA-Sen, Sheep. It’s seemed as of Walker found his footing after his campaign shakeup and began gaining against Warnock after trailing over the summer. That’s actually what I anticipated since Warnock is well to the left of the state and has a raft of ethical issues Georgians would be unlikely to be comfortable with.

      How about your thoughts about the NC Senate race and the Bo Hines Congressional race.(Virginia Foxx is my Congressman.)
      I have not seen one Ted Budd advertisement yet in the NC High Country.
      My concern is that early voting starts in NC in 2 1/2 weeks. Is the GOP ready?

    1038. Phil says:

      Warnock spent twenty million already to try and define Hershel and put him away this summer. It didn’t work. Hershel is a likable guy and when you try to tear down someone who is truly likable it’s hard to do – as the Warnock campaign has discovered.

    1039. Wes says:

      I’ve seen several Budd ads recently, Sheep. They’ve been attacking the public image Beasley is trying to portray of herself as a successful lawyer and non-politician. At the same time, Budd has a positive spot running having people say, “I trust Ted Budd.” I’m still sticking by my prediction that Budd wins handily.

      As for the race to replace Virginia Foxx, honestly I haven’t followed it that closely. That said, I’ll research it and get back to you.

    1040. Wes says:

      I just looked up Hines, Sheep. He made a possible gaffe about the Banana Republic clothing store chain. Honestly from the context of the quote, I can’t tell if Hines is making a flat attempt at a joke or seriously failing to realize the political context of the term “banana republic.”

      “New Ivermectin Study Demonstrates 92 Percent Reduction in COVID-19 Mortality Rate”

      And yet during the dog days of Covid, doctors were not allowed to prescribe it because the Covid shots were approved under emergency measures which included the condition that there was no treatment available.

      Not only was Ivermectin available, it was also effective. But people died because of the lie that the shots were the only hope.

    1044. Wes says:

      I hadn’t worried about the congressional races recently beyond the Senate race, Sheep. I was furious about the NCSC’s decision to overturn the map unilaterally and just accepted they were going to screw the elected officials out of their constitutional right. I had heard Foxx was teasing retirement and had assumed she went through with it.

      I should look more into those since I’ve been focusing on the Senate and NCSC races.

      From what I read about Hines in the Google search, I didn’t see anything disqualifying, and as I say, from the context, I didn’t see much in the way of a significant attack in the Banana Republic line. I’ll look further into him, but from what little I’ve read, he doesn’t seem like a disaster of a candidate.

    1045. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      RIP Elizabeth II.

      Am grateful several months ago the Queen saw how much she was loved in England during her Platinum Jubilee. And the world got to know future monarch Prince William and his family. I wish Charles would step aside and let William assume the throne, but perhaps it’s better a more experienced royal was on the throne at this time.

      Mitch McConnell, of all people, made a very good tribute to the Queen:

      “Despite spending nearly three quarters of a century as one of the most famous and admired individuals on the planet, the Queen made sure her reign was never really about herself — not her fame, not her feelings, not her personal wants or needs. She guided venerable institutions through modern times using timeless virtues like duty, dignity, and sacrifice. She offered our contemporary world a living master class it needed badly.”

    1046. Wes says:

      More information on NC-13:

      It’s roughly evenly split. Hoyer (D-MD) and McCarthy (R-CA) have visited there. Hines has wisely avoided comparisons to Madison Cawthorn. It’s going to be an expensive race.

    1047. Wes says:

      Just spit balling from what I see, if I had to guess, I’d say since Dems have a credible nominee, Hines may have a slight edge given the year though after January, the General Assembly will probably need to shore him up.

    1064. Wes says:

      Cloture is the attempt by the Senate to end a filibuster, Mikey, so a cloture vote would come after Senate Republicans announced a filibuster.

    1077. jason says:

      No! You’re comment is as STOOPID as someone saying Kamala Harris should be pushed out of office 1st if it appears Biden can’t finish his term.”

      Tgca, when saying something really stupid, usually digs deeper and manages to outdo even the first stupidity.

      No, Kamala Harris cannot be pushed out of office first if Biden can’t finish his term, there is no provision for this.

      However, in Britain, the queen could, if she wished, abdicate in favor of her grandson and bypass her son.

    1078. Tgca says:

      1096

      Notice how Paul is willing to ignore the IG report because it’s unfavorable to Biden and brings up the issues brought forth over a year ago by many. If it were under Trump, I’m sure he’d be calling for Trump to be held accountable.

      Most Afghans are not a threat, but as the IG reported, they found examples of dangerous people on watch lists and a threat to national security that otherwise would not have gotten into the US but were brought over because they were not vetted.

      Usually the IG are very cautious in their findings where they are less likely to make accusations even when there is some basis for them so I think this is telling they are willing to come out with this damning report.

    1079. Bitterlaw says:

      English is my first language. Here goes:

      When Elizabeth died as the reigning monarch, the throne passed to her eldest child, Charles.

      During her lifetime, Queen Elizabeth could have abdicated and named her grandson, William, as her successor. In that scenario, Charles could suck it.

    1080. Tgca says:

      1107

      Actually there is. Biden can ask her to resign or go public with asking her resignation as a show of no confidence. She could refuse to resign but it would be highly unlikely a VP can withstand the scrutiny of such a request by POTUS and would probably lose the party faithful as well.

      Still, I think it’s as dumb as thinking the Queen choosing her grandson over her son as a successor in this case.

      There would have to be a real compelling reason for this and since William is just as woke, if not more woke than Charles, I don’t see your logic in the 1st place especially since Charles, as his mother, has dedicated his life to supporting the people and William has not racked up that same loyalty to date.

    1081. Tgca says:

      1109

      But why?

      WTF has Woke William done to earn it?

      Charles has been more loyal and dedicated than William to the people of GB. William hasn’t come anywhere close to the dedication his father has put in for decades.

    1082. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The corrupt Ukrainians are at it again:

      “Ukrainians who reportedly sank a Russian warship in June with Western-supplied weapons had received training sponsored by the U.S. and allies just a week or two earlier, according to the U.S. undersecretary of defense for acquisition and sustainment.”

    1083. Tgca says:

      By the way, this whole conversation has nothing to do with the Queen. She NEVER had any inclinations she wished to bypass Charles.

      This is all wishful thinking by IGORENT people who somehow think William is deserving over Charles.

      I think part of it is because of so e people’s obsession with his mother Princess Di who I believe was a demented twisted manipulative person who tried to play the victim in every public interview. Go watch her interviews. She sounds like she’s a better fit for The View than a princess. She often sounds like AOC. Very melodramatic.

    1084. Bitterlaw says:

      I did not say anything about who deserved to be King. I explained the rules by which Charles or William could become King. My Irish DNA could not care less who becomes King of England. I agree that Charles was a good and loyal son. He outlived his mom and gets the prize.

    1085. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca is now going to trash a woman who was killed in a car accident 25 years ago.

    1086. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      We need to get this nonsense about the ability of Queen Elizabeth II to have resigned and appointed Prince William as her successor off the table. The succession to the British Crown was determined by an Act of Parliament. Charles was Elizabeth II’s successor whether she died or resigned — Queen Elizabeth had no say in naming her successor.

    1087. Bitterlaw says:

      If I am wrong, put it on my tab.

    1088. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      As a commenter stated:

      “The Monarch get absolutely no say whatsoever as to who follows them. The order of succession was decided by law centuries ago. The Monarch is always succeeded by their eldest son (eldest child now, in line with Equality Law). So we know that Charles will succeed Elizabeth and that William will follow Charles and because William is married and has a family we know that George will follow William. Simple to understand?”

    1089. NYCmike says:

      “WTF has Woke William done to earn it?”

      -What has any of them done to earn it?

      Absolutely NOTHING!

      I respect the Queen for her service to her nation, her strength of character, her discipline, all that old-fashioned st-ff.

      BUT, as for any of these people “earning” their titles, what a joke. F Them!

      We kicked King George, Parliament and the red-coats the f*ck out of the colonies, and good riddance!

    1090. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      1117. I will stick it on Meghan Markle’s tab. She thinks she should be both Queen of the United Kingdom and President of the United States.

    1091. NYCmike says:

      “Tgca is now going to trash a woman who was killed in a car accident 25 years ago.”

      -He said to watch videos of her to back up his low opinion of her. I know I liked her, but I also know that both her and Charles wanted something different, and neither should have agreed to wed.

      It was pretty obvious they were not meant for each other.

    1092. NYCmike says:

      1120 – ain’t that the Truth!

      Poor Harry, went from being The Man to The Runt in no time flat! Meghan must give good headache.

    1093. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      1119. This is coming from a citizen of a country whose leaders are Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. But they have “earned” it — but not as flagrantly as Hunter Biden, who lacks finesse. But at least the “old man” gets his cut.

    1094. Bitterlaw says:

      With some exceptions, I prefer to have low opinions of living people rather than the dead. But there are exceptions like Robert E. Lee.

    1095. Tgca says:

      1121

      Agreed! I was a supporter of her until she went all crazy, selfish, and manipulative trying to play the “female”victim when she equally was responsible for the deterioration of her marriage.

      I think it was clear Charles married her out of duty and not true love, and she married more for the fairytale. He should have NEVER given in but he was also young and there were expectations of him.

      It doesn’t matter if she died 25 years ago or still alive today. It did not change her deceit and manipulation of the public. She reminds me of AOC, always whining and playing the “minority” victim.

      Remember, she was also unfaithful in her marriage so she was no victim.

    1096. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      1121. Sadly the car accident Princess Diana died in was a result of getting into a car with a driver who was clearly intoxicated, and who was driving very fast to evade the press. It was a tragic mistake, for which Charles cannot be blamed.

    1097. NYCmike says:

      1123 – don’t blame me, I voted for the guy who thought himself King!

    1098. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Saying all this, I would have preferred Charles had abdicated the throne in favor of William. During the Queen’s recent Platinum Jubilee — Prince William and his family were the stars of the event. Clearly the public was watching the next generation. The Chatto boys were also getting attention. By contrast Harry and Meghan were actually booed.

    1099. Tgca says:

      I also have resentment towards Diana getting all the attention when both she and Mother Teresa died within days of one another and the media side-stepped Mother Teresa for coverage of Diana.

      Who do you think made a better mark in the world? Who made a real difference to the most needy?

      Mother Teresa was born in wealth and privilege and gave it all up and dedicated her life selflessly to help the sick and poor, whereas Diana manipulated the public at every moment to self-promote herself.

      I recall some derogatory comments at the time about how Mother Teresa being selfish and forcing her religious reviews on the poor but how Diana really had a kind heart and helped others.

      Absurdly ridiculous comparison! Diana couldn’t hold a candle to the good deeds Mother Teresa did. Holding a gay man’s hand dying of AIDS in a hospital in front of the media does not compare to a life of living among and helping the poor and sick for decades.

    1100. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      1127. I don’t care if he thinks himself a Martian — I just want his economic policies back. Will put up with his eccentricities. Actually sort of enjoy him irritating people who deserve the abuse.

    1101. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      1129. Totally agree.

    1102. Tgca says:

      1126

      It was also reckless of Diana to be speeding in a car approaching 90 mph trying to outrun the press, putting the lives of local residents at risk. It was also not the 1st time she was accused of trying to outrun the press.

      If I were in a car as a passenger and they were driving that speed on local roadways, I would demand they slowdown or stop the car.

      She did not deserve the accident but she was partly responsible for it.

    1103. jason says:

      “Even if the public were in favour of putting a new monarch on the throne, Prince Charles is next in line, and that’s considered problematic. “We know far too much about his foibles and past errors to revere him as we revere his mother,” writes The Daily Mail‘s Allison Pearson. In addition, people have their doubts about the ability of Prince Charles to maintain the requisite royal neutrality on certain political issues. While the Queen could abdicate in favour of Prince William, there is no historical precedent for passing over the current Prince of Wales (the traditional “on-deck” role) in favour of his child.”

      It seems like she could have done it, but there is no “precedent”.

      In any case, I would prefer William to Charles because I think he is a lot less woke.

      That being said, Charles is King, Long Live the King.

    1104. jason says:

      It was also reckless of Diana to be speeding in a car approaching 90 mph”

      Nah, not reckless, unfortunate.

      She was in the backseat, she wasn’t driving and it wasn’t her car.

      So she was not reckless. And maybe she did tell the driver to slow down and was ignored, we don’t know. In any case, she was powerless to do anything about it at that point, so calling her reckless is not reasonable.

    1105. jason says:

      She did not deserve the accident but she was partly responsible for it.”

      No, she was not at all responsible for the accident.

    1106. NYCmike says:

      https://pjmedia.com/vodkapundit/2022/09/08/rand-paul-thinks-fauci-is-hiding-something-n1627844

      “This looks far worse than simple corruption. This looks like an agency of the federal government illegally colluding with Big Tech to strip Americans of our constitutionally protected free speech — while lining their own pockets at our mandated expense.

      The next GOP congress needs to do a lot more than just hold more hearings. While I don’t trust the Biden Department of Justice to actually pursue any justice against Fauci, it’s up to Republicans to make sure there is never another banana republic doctor running America’s public health.

      Zero out Fauci’s office in the next budget and reduce the headcount at the NIH so hard that the survivors get the message: Never again.”

      -I’m sure jason will say they are indispensable as well. Increase their funding!

    1107. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      1133. No, it could not have been done. The Act of Succession made Charles the next monarch; William will be his successor; William’s eldest son George will succeed him. Do a Google search of the Act of Succession.

      “The death of Queen Elizabeth II puts her eldest son, now King Charles III, on the throne. He became king because he was first in the royal line of succession, a snaking lineage that weaves through the generations of this thousand-year-old institution’s family tree.”

      “Prince William now replaces Charles as heir to the throne, followed by his three children”

    1108. Tgca says:

      1135

      Yes she was!

      Would you ride as a passenger in a car going excessively fast and recklessly through local neighborhoods and stay silent?

      It is reckless and irresponsible for any adult to do that.

      What if they survived and killed someone in an accident? Do you think she could argue, not my fault, I was not driving. I was just a passenger.

    1109. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The driver would have been noticeably intoxicated.

      “The man who drove Princess Diana and her lover into the wall of a Paris tunnel was a former French military pilot who was too drunk to see straight and may have been going as fast as 120 mph, authorities said yes

      He also allegedly taunted pursuing photographers, vowing “you won’t catch us.”

      Henri Paul, 41, deputy security chief at the Ritz Hotel, had been off-duty but was ordered into work at the last minute to drive the glittering couple.

      He did not have a chauffeur’s license but had been trained to drive a heavily armored Mercedes in anti-terrorist maneuvers.

      Prosecutors said blood tests showed he had the equivalent of 10 glasses of wine or nine hefty shots of whiskey in his system three times the French blood-alcohol limit and more than twice the New York limit.

      Officials said that much booze would leave a 165-pound man seeing double and unable to walk without staggering.”

    1110. Tgca says:

      1139

      All the more reason Diana and Dodi should have called for the driver to slow down or stop, or not get in the car with him.

      He was out with them so it’s unbelievable they would get in a car with a drunk and let him drive.

      Their bad judgment unfortunately had a horrible outcome but it could have been worse. Other people could have been killed.

      Remember, it was not the 1st time they had been accused of speeding and trying to outrun the press.

      Purely reckless and irresponsible behavior.

    1111. Tgca says:

      Seems like Jadon trying to mock me for supposedly not knowing about the rules when I corrected him is vastly IGORENT himself of the rules and has been schooled on the correct legal protocol by other posters here, that they substantiated with legal precedent as back-up while Jadon goes with his “FEELINGS” as evidence.

      Again, my point was never about what could or could not happen but what should happen. Charles has earned the right, Woke William has not, and I repeat for the record, William is as woke as they come in the celebrity world if you go back and look at the causes he supports and his previous comments over the years.

      Perhaps it’s guilt but there is no denying, he’d be a very woke king as well. I don’t think any of the royal family have the class, stature, and reasonableness that the Queen had.

    1112. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Trump is bouncing off the wall, this time attacking Fox News.

      At one time, Trump was very strategic in his attacks, and they were done to drive his opponents off balance. Often they were very effective. Now he is just lashing out, often incoherently.

      “Former President Donald Trump threatened to file a lawsuit against Fox News on Thursday morning. The ex-president was fuming over the anti-Trump organization, The Lincoln Project, running their ads—which ripped into him and his MAGA supporters—in Bedminster, New Jersey (where Trump lives) on the conservative cable network. “The Perverts and Lowlifes of the Lincoln Project are back on, where else, Fox News,” Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social. “The Paul Ryun [sic] run Fox only has high standards for ‘Trump’ ads, but not for anyone else. The Perverts should not be allowed to ‘false advertise,’ and Fox News should not allow it to happen. See you all in Court!!!””

    1113. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      1140. Making matters worse, Princess Diana was not wearing a seat belt. There are some who say that if she had been wearing a seat built, she would have survived.

      Diana and Dodi had a bodyguard, who also died in the accident. You would have thought he would have taken some control of the situation if the driver was impaired, or if Diana and Dobi we’re not in a condition to do things like properly use their seat belts. The whole situation was a disaster.

    1118. jason says:

      There is a lot of shouda, couda, wouda here to try to transfer responsibility to Diana for the accident.

      Not wearing a seat belt may have contributed to her death, but it was not the cause of the accident. Nor was the failure of the bodyguard, if that was the case, to insist she wear a seat belt.

      Nobody here knows if Dodi, Diana, or the bodyguard told the driver to slow down. The main cause of the accident was that the driver was legally drunk, many cars go 90 mph without having an accident. It is highly probable the passengers didn’t know the state of the driver’s inebriation.

      It may be that Diana made a poor choice of boyfriends. That she made a bad choice in leaving the hotel to go to Dodi’s apartment that night.

      None of this makes Tgca’s bogus charge that She “did not deserve the accident but she was partly responsible for it.”

      She was zero responsible for the accident, anymore than a passenger in a subway is responsible for the train crashing.

    1119. jason says:

      –Republicans push to restrict mail-in voting ahead of U.S. November midterms”

      I hope so if they intend to win any of the races.

    1120. jason says:

      I travel a lot around the world. Several times I have been in taxis going too fast and driving reckless. Several times I have told the driver to slow down and been ignored. I have gotten out a couple of times, but you can’t do that on a freeway or in a bad area with your luggage.

      If one of those taxis had crashed, Tgca would have blamed me for “reckless behavior”.

    1121. jason says:

      Cow makes a good case on why I don’t read the MSM.

    1122. jason says:

      I see the Broncos beat the Eagles in the season opener of the woke NFL.

      Supposedly, naming formerly violent games after animals is demeaning to the animals. The Broncos will be renamed the Renewables and the Eagles will be the Sustainables.

      Also both teams will renounce their commitment to winning and instead declare their primary purpose is to promote world peace and fight climate change.

      As instructed, Bitter will burn all his Eagles merchandize in the special non-polluting carbon neutral oven the NFL will be selling for $2500. Yes, expensive, but consider some of the proceeds are going to Pacific Islanders who have seen sea levels increase by half an inch over the last century and you won’t feel bad about parting with the money.

    1123. Tgca says:

      1148

      I think the world would have saw it differently if Diana and Dodi walked away from the crash and others were injured or killed. They would have been sued and possibly criminally charged as employers of the driver.

      You have a responsibility as a passenger in a car with your employee driver to ensure they are behaving responsibly. He was working for them, not the other way around.

      High speeds through local neighborhoods and then into a tunnel is reckless. This was not the 1st time they had tried to outrun the paparazzi. It was reported at the time that it was like a game.

      That’s like saying an airline has no responsibility if it’s pilots are drunk and co-workers or other airport personnel are aware of the reckless behavior and do not intervene.

      Diana is partly responsible for her own death. She used bad judgment and it cost her life.

      I doubt if she or Dodi insisted the driver slow down he would blatantly ignored their wishes as his employer.

      STOP excusing bad behavior.

      My last comment on this.

      I never questioned what would happen if the Queen dies. Clearly Charles ascends to the throne.

      The question was could the Queen have abdicated while alive in favor of her grandson. If you google this you will find references that this is possible but never done before. I have quoted such references above. However, it does seem that for that to happen Charles would also have to agree to it.

      In any case, I prefer William to Charles, who I think he is a woke dork. Plus, the Queen Consort has a face like a horse while Kate Middleton is beautiful. So I will rephrase my comment above to I wish both Elizabeth and Charles had abdicated in favor of William.

      Several have commented that Charles has been loyal and is entitled to the throne. This is true.

      I just wish William were King and not Charles.

      Those that disagree can GFTs.

      Long live King Charles!

      Keep digging. The driver did not work for Diana. O even Dodi.

      He was a driver for the Ritz Hotel. I don’t even know if he was “employed” by the hotel or just a free lancer they used.

      So neither Dodi or Diana had any responsibility as “employers”.

    1126. jason says:

      Btw, the “driver” was not even a professional driver.

      He worked for security at the Hotel. His shift had ended when he got a call to go back to the hotel to drive Dodi home.

      “He later went into security where he worked at the Ritz hotel in Paris.

      The 41-year-old had a reputation as a “macho action man” who loved being around celebrities and meeting high-profile people in his role.”

    1127. jason says:

      The driver was a security guard for the hotel moonlighting as driver.

      If you want to sue someone, the hotel would be a likely target, not Diana or Dodi.

    1128. jason says:

      That’s like saying an airline has no responsibility if it’s pilots are drunk and co-workers or other airport personnel are aware of the reckless behavior and do not intervene.”

      Zzzzzz….

      Blaming Diana is like blaming a passenger on a plane that crashes because the pilots are drunk.

    1130. jason says:

      Btw, this same hotel employee had picked up Diana at the airport and taken her shopping earlier.

      It is likely that if he had driven recklessly on those prior trips Diana would have asked for another driver. Maybe he wasn’t drunk then.

      There was no “recklessness” on the part of Diana. None. Zero. Nada. Zilch.

      Ma, that bait worked like a charm, it is deadly for Bitterfish.

    1132. Bitterlaw says:

      Setting aside the fact that a lawsuit would have been filed in Paris under French law, a lawsuit against Diana and Dodi could have been filed under the same circumstances in US courts.

      However, it would likely fail as those claims usually do. Unless a plaintiff could prove that Diana/Dodi exercised control over the driver. Saying “please drive us to….” would not prove control.

    1133. jason says:

      Bitter is still watching woke football but he is not discussing woke football here.

      I will take it.

    1134. jason says:

      The driver was to Diana and Dodi what any limo driver would be. Hired transportation.

      Contrary to Tgca’s asinine statement, being in a limo does not mean the driver is your employee.

      1) Victor won’t get 4% in the end
      2) 45% is not good for an incumbent
      3) The undecided should break for Masters

    1138. jason says:

      There will be a debate. If Masters wins it, and he should, it should narrow the spread.

      Kelly is a former astronaut and Gabby Giffords husband. That got him elected. It is what he has going for him. Outside that, he is a total dud.

    1139. jason says:

      Henri Paul, 41, deputy security chief at the Ritz Hotel, had been off-duty but was ordered into work at the last minute to drive the glittering couple.

      He did not have a chauffeur’s license but had been trained to drive a heavily armored Mercedes in anti-terrorist maneuvers.”

      Does Tgca still want to maintain he was an employee of Dodi and Diana?

    1140. Phil says:

      Masters will close somewhat. He hasn’t been on the air at all and Kelly has saturated the airways. Whether Masters can make up 6 pts would be pretty tough….especially with McConnell pulling the money out. Further proof McConnell has no desire to see MAGA Republicans in his caucus (as if we needed any more proof). Kelly has thirty million in the bank and Masters doesn’t even have enough money to get on the air until the beginning of October. Sad given the fact that Kelly, despite the media proclaiming him a “moderate” is anything but. Votes the Democratic line 100% of the time. You’d think because of that Mitch would want the guy gone. Think again.

    1141. jason says:

      Zero out Fauci’s office in the next budget and reduce the headcount at the NIH so hard that the survivors get the message: Never again.”

    1143. jason says:

      You’d think because of that Mitch would want the guy gone. Think again.”

      If Mitch didn’t want Masters to win, why would he fund him in October.

    1144. Tgca says:

      So if Jadon gets in a car and the Uber driver is going 90 mph through city streets because he is trying to avoid paparazzi getting pics of his client and the client is ok with this driving, then the client is responsible as well. No one in their right mind think it’s ok to drive through city streets and into a tunnel at ridiculously high speeds.

      The driver is in essence working for the people he is driving. He is most likely acting at their bequest.

      To think Diana and Dodi were unaware of this reckless behavior and could not stop it is utterly ridiculous.

      If they objected and the driver refused to drive safely, he would most likely be fired and could be charged criminally as well.

      Also, drivers usually bend over backwards to please celebrity clients and don’t go out of their way to put their lives at risk.

      Again, Diana is partially responsible for the accident because it appears her and Dodi did nothing to stop the reckless driving, and clearly had to be aware of the reckless driving sitting in the car.

      Remember, the news reports at the time was the paparazzi were being taunted and I believe they made statements that Diana and Dodi were laughing or part of the taunts.

      It’s unfortunate but her and Dodi bare responsibility for the driving.

      They had the power to stop this reckless driving. It was not like they were prisoners.

      If I were in a taxi with this behavior, I would demand they halt the vehicle and let me out.

      It appeared it was all a game and Diana and Dodi played into it and paid a terrible price. Also remember, it was not the 1st time with this behavior per paparazzi past experiences.

      Why would he fund him in October?

      He’s not and that’s kind of the point isn’t it? That’s when Masters will have accumulated enough $$ on his own to get on the air. He’ll have to do it by himself. No help from McConnell or Rove’s group or any of the other R establishment sources. So far from McConnell? We have one really helpful statement and one statement only – telling the world how lousy the Republican candidates are. That’s it. Real leadership. He doesn’t want MAGA candidates in the caucus that he can’t control. Anyone think McConnell would have withheld all funds from one of the “acceptable” Republican candidates had they won the Arizona primary? Me neither.

      Hey Phil, stop making sh-t up.

      McConnell’s pack did cut HALF of their spending for this race. But they are still in for $4 million starting in October, a considerable expenditure for one PAC.

      And today Thiel’s PAC is starting a $1.5 million ad campaign.

      “Senate Leadership Fund, the super PAC aligned with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, announced two weeks ago it was cutting $8 million, or roughly half of its initial reservation in Arizona. That meant SLF ads in support of Masters won’t begin airing until October.”

    1152. Tgca says:

      1178

      Assigning responsibility to someone for contributing to reckless behavior is not trashing someone. That’s like saying assigning fault to a person killed in a car accident while driving and texting is trashing them.

      Diana’s bodyguard survived. He was responsible to protect her. You think 3 other people in a car driving recklessly through city streets at highway speeds could not have stopped it if they really wanted to?

      How naive. You seem caught up in the celebrity if it all as opposed to the responsibility of adults.

      Celebrities often play these “catch me if you can games” with the paparazzi. It is well known this occurs frequently.

    1153. Wes says:

      McConnell is giving money to Vance, Oz, and Walker–all MAGA candidates–Phil. Masters outright said he wouldn’t vote for McConnell to be Majority Leader–not a wise move when Masters needed SLF to put money into the race for him.

      Trump and Thiel both are billionaires who have nine-digit SuperPACs and backed Masters in the primary. Neither has given Masters a dime since the primary. If you’re going to jump on McConnell for not backing Masters, then to be consistent, you have to bash Trump and Thiel for sitting on the money they raised specifically to spend on elections rather than buoying Masters with it.

    1154. jason says:

      Sorry, they are still in for $8 million starting in October.

      And they could spend more, McConnell is building a big fund to distribute in addition to the initial outlays.

    1155. jason says:

      Wes, McConnell is still spending at least $8 million on Masters.

      Here we go

      09/08/2022 05:34 PM EDT

      After sitting dormant since Blake Masters’ primary election, the super PAC that helped the candidate clinch the Republican Senate nomination in Arizona is now back in business.

      Saving Arizona PAC, the outside group originally bankrolled by billionaire tech entrepreneur and venture capitalist Peter Thiel, on Friday will launch its first television ad for Masters since the Aug. 2 primary.

      Saving Arizona has taken out a $1.5 million broadcast television ad buy in Phoenix, set to run over the next two weeks. The ad, first obtained by POLITICO, compares Masters and Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly, attacking Kelly for his votes on immigration and energy issues”

    1157. Tgca says:

      1180

      You’re the IDIOT thinking it’s ok to sit back and enjoy the ride at high speeds through local streets, endangering the lives of locals.

      My gut feeling is this driver drove this way knowing he had their permission to do so and outrun the paparazzi. After all, seated in the front seat next to the driver was Diana’s bodyguard.

      This reckless driving went on for some time. It wasn’t a 10-second incident.

    1158. Wes says:

      Of course had Masters not run his mouth about refusing to support McConnell, then SLF would have had its money spigot flowing.

      Meanwhile, Donald Trump and Peter Thiel basically told Masters, “Glad you won, but you’re on your own now.”

      It’s not as if either man has a SuperPAC he could use to send much-needed money Masters’ way of course.

    1159. Bitterlaw says:

      I would trash somebody who caused an accident while texting and driving because they controlled their vehicle. As I said above, Diana and Dodi did not exercise control over the operation of the vehicle. That is the difference.

    1160. Phil says:

      Saving Arizona is not McConnell PAC $$.

So, you know, like, for me I know other people are tip-toeing around them [white people]. And I’m like, ‘Yo, that’s some white sh*t. I ain’t doing that.’”

      The bodyguard worked for Dodi’s father, not Diana.

      And we don’t know anything about what he said or didn’t say to the hotel driver. He claims not to remember anything about the accident, which is believable since he had severe head injuries and it took 10 hours of surgery to reconstruct his face.

    1167. Phil says:

      I’m still trying to figure out the crickets from McConnell about Biden’s speech. Sometimes it’s not what you say but what you don’t say…especially when you are the fricken Republican leader of the Senate. McConnell’s silence was kind of loud. Even Wes who likes McConnell said it was malpractice. The question is WHY the silence. He hates Trump and the non Bush majority rank in file voters in the Republican Party – except on election day when he just expects them to automatically turn out and put his establishment types in office. Didn’t happen in the Georgia senate runoffs and it won’t happen magically in other races either.

    1173. jason says:

      wes is correct that Masters was stupid to say he wouldn’t vote for McConnell.

      The fact McConnell is still going to fund him to at least the tune of $8 million might mean McConnell is smarter than Masters (caveat, I think Masters is a smart guy, maybe just not politically smart).

      Interesting article on this younger generation heading in a direction to be worse off than their parents. Specifically of interest is that home ownership is declining among younger people but increasing amongst businesses who are becoming landlords, especially foreign businesses like China

      So we are looking at a higher home rental society and decrease in wealth over time among the general population, as home ownership has traditionally added significantly to wealth in the over 40 crowd. These young people will miss out on the opportunities their parents had and this could push the dynamics and politics of the under 40 crowd nationally as they become majority of voters.

      I think it’s a shame we are going backwards the last few years but nothing lasts forever. More wealth is being concentrated in the few mega wealthy and big companies now actively entering markets they did not in the past.

      The young can’t count on inheritance either since life expectancy increases of many of the middle class is eating into inheritances with round the clock care for those living into their 80s and 90s and forcing people to sell homes to pay for nursing care.

      More anti-capitalist and socialistic claptrap from big government advocate Tgca.

      Not only can’t property owners charge market prices but now corporations can’t invest in real estate.

      Here is the deal. If nobody can afford the housing offered by “big corporations”, they will lower the prices, same as any other property owner.

      Let the market decide property values, not politicians and arm chair socialists.

    1200. jason says:

      And by the way, “big corporations” are guess what, owned by shareholders.

      And you know who the shareholders are? Yep, ordinary people.

      144 million people in America own stocks.

      BS! You support China slave labor and killing thousands annually for the sake of CAPITALISM.

      China is the biggest threat to America economics and world influence but you don’t want to upset trade so you’re willing to give them a pass.

      Doesn’t surprise me! As a supporter of ABORTION on demand in excess of 40 million worldwide, what’s a million Uyghurs enslaved for labor or slaughtering people for harvesting their organs for the Asian elite to you. At least you’re consistent in your support of genocide and dictators.

    1204. jason says:

      As a supporter of ABORTION on demand in excess of 40 million worldwide,

      Why lie?

      Just say jason thinks abortion should be legal in the first 20 weeks. It should be illegal after 20 weeks.

      See how easy it is?

      “You support China slave labor and killing thousands annually for the sake of CAPITALISM.”

      Why lie?

      Just say jason supports free trade and capitalism.

      See how easy it is?

      That way I won’t even contest your posts.

      …and that is dwindling among the younger generation.

      The wealthiest 10% of Americans own 89% of stocks. The top 1% own the most stock.

      Many individuals own minimal amounts of stock in their 401k.

      The median 401K balance by age in 2022 is:

      < 25 is $2,200

      25 to 34 is $13,300

      35 to 44 is $32,700

      45 to 54 is $56,700

      55 to 64 is $84,700

      65+ is $82,300

      So retirees living into their 80s and 90s will quickly go through their 401K savings in a couple of years and be forced to sell their homes, if they own one, to pay for ongoing healthcare.

    1206. Tgca says:

      You either support ABORTION or you don’t.

      You support ABORTION!!! That means you support the biggest genocide in human history, estimated to be about 1 billion.

      Russians are finding the latest events in the Ukraine discouraging:

      “During Thursday’s airing of 60 Minutes, Apti Alaudinov, the commander of Ramzan Kadyrov’s Chechen detachment “Akhmat,””revisited his routine portrayal of Russia’s war as a battle against the Antichrist. “Let me assure everyone who thinks that we lost something or were defeated somewhere, let me remind you of an old proverb: being defeated in a battle doesn’t mean losing the war,” he said. “Don’t you worry about a thing, everything is fine.”

      Host Olga Skabeeva tried to comfort the audiences by claiming that everything is going according to the plan: “If social media and ‘couch-experts’ existed during WWII, Stalin would have surely lost his mind. We won’t succumb to panic,” Skabeeva’s pep talk notwithstanding, the long faces in the studio spoke louder than words.”

      I don’t support abortion.

      I think abortion should always be legal for the first 20 weeks.

      Hope it’s clear now.

      If not, GFY.

      Btw, I don’t support gay marriage.

      But I think it should be legal.

      Wow, Tgca is a real genius.

      Younger people have smaller 401ks than older people? Maybe because they have less time contributing to it?

      Damm, who knew?

      This is ground breaking sh-t….

    1212. jason says:

      I guess then Poland is safe for a little while longer.”

      Maybe, but they certainly don’t believe they are safe.

      “Poland’s defense budget, currently over two percent of the country’s GDP, is apparently set to grow further. In October 2021, Polish Deputy Prime Minister Jaros?aw Kaczy?ski announced that his government intended to raise defense spending to “significantly higher” levels. Its headline aim was to double the strength of Poland’s armed forces to 250,000 personnel and expand the ranks of its Territorial Defense Force (Wojska Obrony Terytorialnej or WOT) to 50,000.”

      The Poles are smarter than the isolationist morons.

      Why? Because they are not in a bunker in Texas mouthing asinities, they actually have a huge border with Belarus and Russia (Kaliningrad).

      -How absurd is it really?

      In terms of government size, jason, like Hollywood, is clearly unwilling to look at diminishing any department mentioned.

      FBI deserves more $$, according to jason, despite their clearly political bias towards Democrats.

      jason thinks the CDC & NIH can’t be touched, despite their getting just about everything wrong the last 2 years, their political bias in favor of Democrats, along with their love of China and Big Pharma $$.

      He also thinks the DHS can’t be altered in any way. More federally unionized workers are the only thing keeping us safe from attack.

    1218. Bitterlaw says:

      NYC thinks that being against defunding law enforcement is actually supporting increased funding. With that kind of accounting, I wonder how his business is really doing.

      Zzzzzz….I have not advocated for increased funding, although I would not oppose if justified.

      I think idiots like you who think the FBI should be eliminated are simplistic morons who don’t understand what role the FBI plays in law enforcement. You think the 35,000 workforce of the FBI is all engaged in persecuting Republicans.

      GFY

      BS, I never said anything about “not being touched”. I would support cleaning house of their leadership.

      But both agencies have essential roles, and only a moron like you think we don’t need a CDC.

    1223. jason says:

      Bunker in Texas. Yeah, sure. As opposed to fighting on the front lines…in Pennsylvania?”

      Yeah, it is easy to make simplistic and sophomoric statements about Poland from your safe little Texas bunker.

      The Polish government people understand the threat and are taking steps to counter it.

      That is because you are too stupid to see there defense is in our interest too.

      Personally I think Vega unnecessarily stumbled over the question. She should have just said rape is a heinous act that shouldn’t be politicized over the personal decision of whether a victim decides to terminate a pregnancy resulting from one and left it at that.

      I don’t know if Vega disqualified herself with her word salad answer, but she definitely could have handled things better.

    1238. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The fact the U.S. and NATO have been effective in arming the Ukraine to resist the Russians sends a message to China that the West is willing to counter aggression. The U.S., NATO, Australia, Japan, South Korea and other Asians countries having joint military exercises sends an even stronger message. Believe it was Reagan who coined the term: “Peace through strength.” Taiwan is in a stronger position because of the our involvement in providing aid to the Ukraine.

      1241

      Notice how I proved how IGORENT Jadon is about stock ownership in the US and he ignores how most people can not sustain retirement on it and focuses on just a small group in my post to deflect the STOOPIDITY of his statement trying to justify the vast majority of Americans are somehow benefitting equally in tje stock market.

      89% of stock owned by less than 10% of people with the majority of that owned by 1%.

      Median 401K for most people is less than $80K. That’s where most non-wealthy Americans own stock. Try retiring on that $80k

      In essence, stock ownership is not beneficial to the vast majority of Americans at this time.

      Evidently Jadon NEVER worked in finance and that’s why his knowledge of it is so limited.

      Here’s the numbers again so maybe this time Jadon can be honest and address my point.

      Medan 401K by age:

      < 25 is $2,200

      25 to 34 is $13,300

      35 to 44 is $32,700

      45 to 54 is $56,700

      55 to 64 is $84,700

      65+ is $82,300

      So retirees living into their 80s and 90s will quickly go through their 401K savings in a couple of years and be forced to sell their homes, if they own one, to pay for ongoing healthcare.

    1242. Bitterlaw says:

      Phil thinks we can decide who our enemies are. We don’t. Our enemies choose for us.

      This is why I know his claim to unleash hell if Russia ever attacked a NATO ally is BS. He will be the first to type “Not one dead American for Warsaw.”

    1243. Tina says:

      The Ccp are the enemy #1.

      Btw, I noticed an increase in gasoline prices. It’s up to $5.19 from $5.07.

    1244. Tgca says:

      So Jadon is for ABORTION being available on demand but he claims that is not supporting ABORTION.

      That’s like saying I believe people should follow the law but I don’t support the rule of law.

      It makes no sense!

      Another reason Jadon is not a conservative. A capitalist, yes. A conservative, no.

      But what do you expect from a guy who refuses to vote but then has the gall to claim other people elect Dems by voting for unwinnable candidates.

      Actually, not voting at all is more likely to elect Dems. So Jadon is more likely to help elect Dems than anyone else at HHR.

    1245. jason says:

      I don’t believe that allegation against Romney. Another fissure in the A-holes.”

      I believe it.

    1246. jason says:

      So Jadon is for ABORTION being available on demand ”

      I can keep this up forever. However, we can end it right now if Tgca will just quote what I actually say.

      I do not support abortion or that it should be “available on demand”. I don’t believe it should be paid for with taxpayer funds. I believe minors should have parental consent.

      I think abortion should be legal up to 20 weeks, but I can support 15 weeks as a standard. I also support the SCOTUS decision returning the issue to the states. I personally don’t agree with any state outlawing all abortions, and I personally don’t agree with any state allowing late term abortions.

      There it is. No need to lie about it.

    1247. jason says:

      Speaking of voting, did Bitter ever agree to my proposal?

      If he did, I have to register.

      Tgca hardest hit.

    1248. jason says:

      Actually, not voting at all is more likely to elect Dems.”

      Hello?

      So if 100,000 people in Philly decide not to vote, that helps elect Dems?

      Who knew?

    1249. jason says:

      China has been building their military at a breakneck speed. They have a GNP exactly nine times larger than Russia.

      Eye on the ball, boys.”

      I bet Phil will surrender Taiwan on the first day of any conflict.

      Eye on the ball my ass.

    1250. Phil says:

      You want to argue we need to save Ukraine for some reason, fine. I don’t buy it but go right ahead. Just cut the bullsh’t that the Russians are some God awful threat to the US. Just stop with that crap. The Russian war machine has been fully exposed for what it is over the last seven months. If they tried to attack a NATO country I’d sit here with my popcorn and happily watch NATO air power make mincemeat of the Russians…but they aren’t that stupid. Think Putin doesn’t look at the last seven months and see what everyone else has seen with regard to the obvious limits of his military?

      Worry about China sinking our aircraft carriers. That’s an actual real possibility.

    1251. Tgca says:

      1278

      Jadon says he doesn’t support ABORTION but then says he SUPPORTS it up to 15 weeks and that he SUPPORTS it being legal up to 20 weeks but claims this is not supporting ABORTION.

      Me thinks we need to send Jadon back to ESL. Evidently he no comprende Engwish.

    1252. Tgca says:

      Phil

      Jadon is a China sycophant. He is ok with a million + Uyghurs enslaved in camps and slave labor. He’s ok with China killing thousands annually, more than dying in Ukraine.

      All in the name of CAPITALISM!

      He thinks like the warmonger GWB who thought hundreds of thousands of lives and over 4,000 American soldiers were worth a CAPITALISM experiment that failed miserably after starting a phony war in time middle east.

    1253. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason – While I agree with almost everything you posted in your proposal, I will not formally agree to it for one simple reason. You either believe in doing what you can to stop Democrats by voting or you don’t. If you don’t, then you betray your convictions by surrendering them based upon your empty words you want me to parrot. If you do, you don’t need the public stunt of making me bow to your demands in order to do want you want to do anyway.

      Register or don’t. Your decision. I am not my A-hole’s keeper.

    1254. Tgca says:

      1279

      So Bitter wins the argument over Jadon that not voting helps elects Dems in PA and Jadon now looking for a way to save face and consider voting again due to Bitter outsmarting him.

      Just remember folks, Jadon not voting in PA helps elect Dems.
