Amazing to see our President outsmarted by a porn star.

Amazing that you think that!

A GOP donor first hired Fusion GPS to investigate Trump. Later, Clinton campaign and DNC paid Christopher Steele to keep looking.

He was paid £130,000 for his undercover work.

Stormy Daniels was paid $130,000 for her undercover work.

Looking forward to her dossier on what she uncovered.

Gregory

In the meantime... by politico's poll, the generic GOP congressionalcritter vote is in the plurality by 1%.

Push harder on the Stormy Daniels story guys.

-- NEW POLITICO/MORNING CONSULT POLL: “Poll: GOP gains on generic ballot, Trump approval ticks upward,” by Steve Shepard: “Fully 39 percent of registered voters say they would support the GOP candidate for Congress in their district, while 38 percent would back the Democratic candidate. Nearly a quarter of voters, 23 percent, are undecided.

“Voters are split almost evenly along party lines. Democratic voters break for their party, 85 percent to 5 percent, while Republicans similarly favor the GOP, 84 percent to 8 percent. Among independent voters, 26 percent would vote for the Democrat, 25 percent for the Republican and nearly half, 49 percent, are undecided.” http://politi.co/2srdzA5

Gregory

"The new year has also produced a Trump polling bump. In the new poll, 47 percent of voters approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while the same percentage disapprove.

Among Democrats, 16 percent approve of Trump’s job performance and 80 percent disapprove. The numbers are almost exactly inverted among Republicans: 82 percent approve, while 16 percent disapprove. Trump is still underwater among independents: 39 percent approve and 49 percent disapprove."

LOL Proggys, keep yapping about non issues. Did Stormy provide a receipt?
I believe there is a jealous proggy. He can't afford Stormy.

Bill Tozer

After years of accusing states of voter suppression, the Center for American Progress, citing election security, wants to make voting tougher for Americans serving overseas in the military.
The left-wing public policy group issued a report Monday, “Election Security in All 50 States,” that called for stricter standards to prevent cybermeddling in elections by foreign governments, including banning military stationed abroad from submitting ballots via email or fax.

How much are you forking out today xeno in hopes of "getting any" tonight?
In other words,, your pay'n for it".
Flowers? 30 bucks Dinner out? ( Drive through Mc D's most likely) 20 bucks.
Drinks at the bar? 40 bucks.
Then the credit card bill for her hair dresser, 100 bucks, New skimpy outfit?(if your lucky) $$$
What? that time of the month? Good thing you have the Internet. Plenty of "that"for free.
Have a great Valentine's night.

Gregory

"Stormy Daniels was paid $130,000 for her undercover work"
-Xeno, Warrior Princess, 1221pm

No, she had $130k pushed across the table just before the election, a tip to insure no press. The earlier story she told, in print, was that she was dreading he'd try to pay her (he didn't at the time) and that it wasn't kinky.

Yes, Trump is a horndog. So is Bill Clinton (or at least, Bubba was a horndog).

I do feel for Melania and their son. Not so much for Hillary and their spawn who joined the family monkey business.

Todd Juvinall

What man in America has not had a fantasy about a woman and some have one about a porn star. My guess is that most guys are dawgs and think the story is a plus for their support for the Trumpster. Others that don't are pussified and worthless.

Xeno

Does Trump really have "big hands"? Princess Xeno wants to know! Maybe Stormy will tell all. She says confidentiality agreement is null and void now.

The school shooter in Broward County has been identified as a 19 year old ex-student, Nicolas Cruz.

Bill Tozer

@ 1:57 pm
Another confused Dem. Does not even know if it is a girl or a boy. A piece of human garbage. Totally insane.

George Rebane

BillT 114pm - Natch, it has always been the Dems who have known about and pioneered new approaches and methods of suppressing voters whose votes they did not like. It started during Reconstruction and went all the way to the 1950s when they changed horses in midstream. And now they want to do everything they can to have their constituents vote early and often, and in every precinct they can reach on election day. But making it easy for our military to vote? no, no, no, because those are almost all the wrong kind of votes. Good catch Mr Tozer.

Also, please see today's Scattershots update about the latest from Shifty Schiff and friends.

jon smith

That "thoughts and prayers" thing doesn't seem to be working very well.

Walt

That non disclosure agreement say she can't tell people he's hung like a Clydesdale, with balls to match.

Robert Cross

"it has always been the Dems who have known about and pioneered new approaches and methods of suppressing voters whose votes they did not like."

Given what has happened recently in red states with voter ID laws, making it more difficult to register and vote, illegal gerrymandering, etc. that all have targeted minorities (likely democratic voters), I would say your statement is a classic example of fake news/propaganda.

Bill Tozer

First thing to do is find out is what drugs the shooter was on. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are the common denominator among the shooters. Then find out what laws the19 year old broke. Many i hazard to guess. Then, after all the thousands of hours of how he got the gun, what kind of gun used, etc....then after all that pass a law that outlaws evil.

In an totally unrelated piece of information, 1/3 of all ex-cons in the US live in Florida.

George Boardman

If sex is the "preferred weapon" against our revered leader, Trump is supplying the ammunition.

Walt

Cross whats anyone and everyone to vote. As long as they vote Liberal. Go it.
Get stopped by a cop and have no ID, you go to jail till they find out who you are. If voting is that important to n individual, they would get that ID. You need it to get welfare.

So Bobby, just who are these people that claim to have been stopped as you say? Bigfoot?

Gregory

Bored Georgeman, amazing that it's sex from a decade before he ran for public orifice that you and your bros are focusing on.

How soon they forget.

At least the GOP had Clinton lying about an affair in the Oval Orifice in a civil deposition about his dropping trou and asking for, um, favors from a state employee brought to him for the purpose by state troopers.

I get it... you're grasping at, umm, hmmm, straws as there is still no there there at the Russkie Collusion Follies and Trump's moral fiber was factored into the Nov '16 election. The next election (house and senate) is in 9 months and the Democratic Party is homeless.

Or maybe it's that they're Houseless. Senate-less, too. And behind in the generic polls.

George Rebane

RobertC 314pm - You're a bit rusty on your US history and must needs change the subject. OK. Where voter ID laws have been instituted, they have NOT shown to have suppressed the voting rates of any constituency, and they have been wholeheartedly approved by the black voters. The "difficulty" you cite is non-existent; complying with voter ID laws is much easier than checking out of a grocery store with a cart full of groceries. (But it does prevent more Dems voting than are registered or even live in a precinct.) And gerrymandering is an old American custom practiced with equal ferocity by both parties who, from time to time, are successfully challenged in the courts by the other party. Citing that as an implied Republican only perennial is yet more proof that you slept through your history classes.

Robert Cross

Not Bigfoot Walt, American citizens. You apparently aren't aware of two recent Supreme Court decisions in the last few months that both ruled that Republican's illegally gerrymandered districts in their favor, along with several previous decisions that overturned Republican re-districting plans that were found to be racially biased by clumping racial minorities together in wildly gerrymandered districts in order to dilute their voting power, and because racial minorities typically vote Democratic, increase the likelihood of republican victories in other districts. These

Several red states have reduced early voting and precinct hours all of which make it more difficult for working people to vote. A judge recently overturned the Texas voter ID law stating that the law was "enacted with discriminatory intent — knowingly placing additional burdens on a disproportionate number of hispanic and African-American voters." This kind of crap has gone on in every red state in America as the pubbers try to find a way to hold on to power as the numerical minority that represents the unenlightened self-interest of the wealthy at the expense of the rest of the American people.

These things are UNCONSTITUTIONAL. So I guess the real question is:

Do you support the Constitution or do you support the Republican Party? Concerning the legality of these matters you can't really have it both ways.

George: Just what were those new approaches and methods of voter suppression the Dems pioneered? Curious people want to know. I would think wheelchair ramps only helped republicans get out the vote, considering their core demographic of mostly white and aging Americans.

Why don’t you just come out and say that the democrats need every last room temperature IQ possessing urban dweller to vote in order to make another run at power now that they’ve thrown the working class over the side?

Todd Juvinall

Gerrymandering is a product of both parties. Can't wait to see the unconstitutional GM of all the Northeast States and other democrat strongholds. Could be kinda fun.

Alas my position remains it is up to the states to do the deed as the US Constitution says that very thing.

Walt

Now Bobby.Forget so soon how Ca. got away with it? I went through the process to e on that redistricting commission.
I saw how the game was played. Got all the way to step three and THEN shown the door. " we have plenty of your kind,, Thanks." The Right wound up with little say in it. A LIB judge let it slide. Imagine that.

Robert Cross

fishy: I think most of the demographic information points to the fact that a large contingent of trump supporters are white males with a high school diploma or less. So your IQ argument is null and void

Todd: If gerrymandering is a product of both parties, please cite the instances when a Democratically controlled statehouse has been busted by the Supreme Court for trying to rig districts in their favor.

Robert Cross

Fishy: "they’ve thrown the working class over the side'. Yes the Democrats have done just that to curry the favor of Wall St. donors. The Republicans have been doing that since the 1920's. Currently there is no political party that represents working Americans and if you think trump is the savior of the working class you're as delusional as he is.

George Rebane

RobertC 412pm - They are too numerous to list in a comment stream. Most students of history know that the Democratic Party since Jackson has been the party of slavery, the founders of KKK, and the extended practitioners of Jim Crow for openers. Their subsequent destruction of the black family required a more nuanced federally funded approach. It is, after all, the Dems who drove the mobile blacks from their Jim Crow south to the cities of the then Republican north. But for those history challenged curious people, I would refer them to the most recent recounting of which I am aware - 'Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party' (2016) Dinesh D'Souza. Focus on Chapters 2,3,4 of this NYT #1 Best Seller that illuminates the Democratic Party through the life and times of Hillary Clinton. And also focus on the presented facts, not on the ideological bent of its author (to which these responses usually descend). Bet the farm, that none of this history has been taught in our union-dominated public schools.

Walt

Cross can go "F" himself. You think you and Proggys are smarter than all the rest? LOL! You voted for "O"!! Dumbass,,,
The whole point behind "O" was to ruin the nation. And damned well nearly succeeded.
Where are your OWS lowlifes today?
A whole generation of deadbeats.

Scott Obermuller

"A judge recently overturned the Texas voter ID law stating that the law was "enacted with discriminatory intent — knowingly placing additional burdens on a disproportionate number of hispanic and African-American voters."
Additional burdens - what a laugh.
And just what were those 'additional' burdens?
Might have to remember your name? Might have to be a citizen and not an illegal?
"Several red states have reduced early voting and precinct hours all of which make it more difficult for working people to vote."
Yeah - after you get off work you can't go out and party all night. Or you might have to get up an hour earlier. Give me a break. The left has never been able to produce one actual citizen who wasn't able to vote due to voting laws.
Hey Bobby - why don't you just be honest and admit that left wing whities really think that non-whites are too lazy to get up early and too drunk or stoned to dry out by the time the polls close.
I always managed to vote during the decades that I worked full time. I happen to believe that non-whites are just as capable.
Am I wrong?

I suggest you get some common sense and a bit of knowledge about the issue. The R's were shutout of the majority in Congress for forty plus years as the democrats had it all and they gerrymandered themselves into that hegemoony. I admit the R's did not sue as they already knew the Judiciary was stacked against them. Bit I bet you could do some research and come up with some cases that will satify you.

Scott Obermuller

Xeno at 6:02 - no actual hacking was mentioned. No actual malfeasance.
"remain vulnerable"! You mean like your bank account? Or Hillary's secret SOS server in her home?
Everybody is 'vulnerable', fool. Get it off the internet and then it isn't vulnerable.
Use exclusive secure hard lines and paper ballots. Why is there a constant need for more money? If a really secure system were set up, the Dems would howl like coyotes.

Bill Tozer

I get so tired of this. Ok, here we go again. History does not begin today. The Democrat Party history of racism.

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/420321/whitewashing-democratic-partys-history-mona-charen

Democrats voted to keep Africans Americans in slavery, opposing the 13th Amendment which officially freed the slaves. Only four Democrats voted for it.

Republicans also passed the 14th Amendment which granted slaves U.S. citizenship; Democrats voted against it.

Republicans also passed the 15th Amendment which gave slaves the right to vote. Not a single one of the 56 Democrats in Congress voted for it.

Shame on them.

Furthermore, Republicans passed all of the Civil Rights laws of the 1860s — including the Civil Rights Act of 1866 and the Reconstruction Act of 1867 following the Civil War.

The Republican Party itself was founded as the "anti-slavery party" in 1854. The party subsequently gave us President Abraham Lincoln and ultimately, the Emancipation Proclamation which led to the liberation of slaves.

Republicans supported African Americans not only in the 1800s, but in modern times as well.

In the 1960s, with the exception of Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson, who was instrumental in the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act in the wake of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the truth is that Democrats were the largest single blockade to civil rights.

But don't take my word for it.

Long after slavery was over, the Democratic Party continued down their path to deny African Americans their rights. Wikipedia refers to this as the era of "disenfranchisement" when "Democrats worked to exclude blacks" from civil liberties.

PBS reported, "The Democratic Party identified itself as the 'white man's party' and demonized the Republican Party as being 'Negro dominated,' even though whites were in control."

The Democratic Party was responsible for passing Jim Crow laws, in addition to Black Civil Codes that forced Americans to utilize separate drinking fountains, swimming pools, and other facilities in the 20th century.

Even Democratic icons such as Kennedy voted against the 1957 Civil Rights Act while in the U.S. Senate. Sen. Al Gore, Sr., D-Tenn., also opposed it.

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/before-charlottesville-democrats-voted-for-racist-policies-for-more-than-100-years/article/2631947

If the new Cultural Revolution was serious, wouldn't it also demand that the Democratic Party be put in a museum somewhere, away from decent people, along with those Confederate statues?

We could put Democrats in exhibits, behind glass, watching white political bosses chomp cigars and pass out goodies for votes, as minorities were relegated, as they are today, to failing schools and lost educational opportunity and neighborhoods that have become killing fields for the young and old.

And in great museums, the Democrats could be studied, safely, without endangering the sensibilities of the children.

With the Democrat Party’s long history of racism, is it any wonder that they now are afflicted with the White Savior Complex?

Robert Cross

George 5:52

History is history.... the past.. to justify the present because of past actions is fallacious. It is the old 'two wrongs make a right" argument.. So what if the Democratic Party gerrymandered two hundred years ago. What is happening now is the pressing concern and to rationalize current actions as acceptable because the other guys did it two centuries ago is a little weak. D'Souza is a poor source. His questionable work should be taken with a grain of salt. So we are back to square one. In recent memory when has a Democratically controlled state legislature been ordered by the Supreme Court of the United States to redraw district lines because the districts they created were illegally construed to favor themselves. Answer: none

The same for you Todd.. come up with a recent example and I will stand corrected.

Rosa Parks had no need to explain her rights when she moved from the back on the bus to the front.
Sad day today. Sorrowful. . Just don’t see how we can legislate evil and don’t have to explain our rights. The shooter obviously was not a NRA member. BTW, the guy in the bushes who shot two cops....well, they just changed his buddy for accessory to murder or some murder charge because the buddy let the shooter take his gun. No law would have stopped stupid. But really, how do you legislate evil?

Heck, they already threw vets, white males, white rural males, Christians, and all Tea Party (balanced budget types) in the Basket of Mentally Ill and the rest are irredeemable flag waving domestic terrorists. Maybe you can take away their guns on the insanity angle. Unfortunately, they just don’t seem to fit the profile of the Sandy Hook kid who shot his Mom in the face with her own gun and then went hunting down at the kindergarten, or the 19 year old today. or the Pulse Shooter, nor even the profile of the Bernie volunteer who went out and tried to assaiate members of Congress. Imagine if he would have got 6 R’s. One good long shot from a handgun through a fence across a ball field took him down. That is my kind of woman.

Bill Tozer

Ok, Mr. White Savior Cross. So, wanna bring this thang up to date? No prob, bob.

Robert Cross

George 9:10: The messenger is as much a part of the equation as the message. How does one trust the message of a biased messenger other than to put in context as biased and, therefore, unreliable as it relates to the truth. The problem arises when people choose the messages of biased messengers over the truth because they tell the receiver what they want to hear rather than what is true. This, of course. leads to conflict which is baseless and contrived and, as intended, confusing and obfuscating, thus achieving the goal of the messenger.. to hide the truth. So when information is presented from a disgraced source as D'Souza it runs off the backs of the informed like water off a duck and only serves to further discredit the argument of those who use such sources.

Todd Juvinall

Here BoobieC read some truuth and see why we on the right respect the military. The pussies of the left are wearing their vagina hats and protesting males. This is from a Facebook posted by a female friend who I am honored to know, Robin Cayton/Sutherland.

On 2 May 1968, a 12 man SOG team was surrounded by about 1,000 NVA. They dug in and tried to hold them off, but were not going to last long. MSG Roy P. Benavidez heard their distress call over a radio and boarded a rescue helicopter with first aid equipment. He did not have time to grab a weapon, so he voluntarily jumped into the hot LZ armed only with his knife. He sprinted across 75 meters of open terrain through withering small arms and machine gun fire to reach the pinned down team. By the time he reached them, he had been shot 4 times, twice in the right leg, once through both cheeks, which knocked out four molars. He ignored these wounds and began administering first aid. The rescue chopper left as it was not designed to extract men. An extraction chopper was sent for, and Benavidez took command of the men by directing their fire around the edges of the clearing in order to facilitate the chopper’s landing. He was wounded severely, but still carried and dragged half of the wounded men to the chopper.

The enemy fire got worse, and Benavidez was hit in the left shoulder. He got back up and ran to the platoon leader, dead in the open, and retrieved classified documents. He was then shot in the abdomen, and a grenade detonated nearby peppering his back with shrapnel. The chopper pilot was mortally wounded then, and his chopper crashed. The MSG ran to the wreckage and got the wounded out of the aircraft, and arranged them into a defensive perimeter to wait for the next chopper. The NVA was building up to wipe them out, and Benavidez called in tactical air strikes and threw smoke to direct the fire of arriving gunships. Just before the extraction chopper landed, he was shot again in the left thigh while giving first aid to a wounded man. He still managed to get to his feet and carry some of the men to the chopped, directing the others, when an NVA soldier rushed from the woods and clubbed him over the head with an AK-47. This caused a skull fracture and a deep gash to his left upper arm, and yet he still got back up and decapitated the soldier with one swing of his knife. He then resumed carrying the wounded to the chopper and returning for others, and was shot twice more in the lower back. He shot two more NVA soldiers who were trying to board the chopper, then made one last trip around the LZ to be sure all documents were retrieved, and finally boarded the chopper. He had lost 2 quarts of blood. The battle lasted six hours. He had been wounded 37 times.

He was evacuated to the base camp, examined, and thought to be dead. As he was placed in a body bag among the other dead in body bags, he was suddenly recognized by a friend who called for help. A doctor came and examined him and he too believed Benavidez was dead. The doctor was about to zipper up the bag when Benavidez managed to spit in his face, alerting the doctor that he was still alive.

For his actions, MSG. Benavidez was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, but it was not until 1980, that one of the man who was in the six hours of hell with the MSG, provided all the eye witness accounts of Benavidez’s actions. For this, his DSC was upgraded to the Medal of Honor.

fish 212am - posted. Don't know what got into TypePad; it had spammed nine perfectly fine comments (now posted). Thanks for the heads up.

RobertC 756am - It appears that you and yours have the minds of the Renaissance Inquisitors. Rejecting the facts and reports of messengers you consider "disgraced" is akin to what all blinkered hubrists have done since they rejected the discoveries and reports of the disgraced Copernicus, Galileo, ..., Einstein, ... All of them were rejected out of hand because their reports of reality did not fit the narratives of the then elitists. But your and your's behavior is always predictable and well understood.

What’s the over/under on how long before someone finds the data or methodology errors in this one?

George Rebane

A reader sent me this from the FUE's blog to document that this yellow journalist is still a lying SOS - "Now Rebane claims that the comments about Trump’s sexist, lewd and boorish behavior are merely a “tool” of the progressives against him. I don’t know Rebane well but how can he condone Trump’s “grab ’em by the pussy” comments or his porn star sex scandal. Does he condone this behavior?"

??? a quoted 'tool', and against me??? Do his readers really lap this stuff up? But he should rejoice for his thirty seconds in the sun on RR.

To use an Emeryism.....are you trying to say ......that you don’t like hot white women in Spandex with guns?

Phew, we can rest easy now boys. The shooter was only a white supremest, not a terrorist like we thought.

Bingo, Mr. Boardman. Hot,hot, hot. But not as you got watching the men’s huge luge bulges with zoom in shots. One will think if dressed in pants so thin you can read the date on a dime in the back pocket in the freezing biter cold weather, that the package would shrink. Must be on those little blue pills you have been sending them.

Come on Boardman, leave your armed secure fenced community, get some fresh air, and check out attractive white women with rifles with us. As Trump would say, “We want you on our side of the wall.”

GeorgeB 941am - Mr Boardman, that sure sounds like a dose of gratuitous snark from you this morning. You surprised me.

I think we learned all we need to know about GeorgeB's fantasies with his last remark, He doesn't like hot spandex clothed, armed white women from Norway and loves women of color from Zambia or Haiti in native garb and unarmed except maybe with a machete.

Scott Obermuller

Wasn't Manhattan supposed to have it's streets underwater by now?
But the left still laps up info from this same source.
First we were all going to freeze, then we were all going to bake, then it was 'the end of snow' and along the way the world was going to run out of food, oil and then we would all die. The 'deadlines' have come and gone all was proven false.
Yet the left continues to beat the same drum and blindly ignores reality.

Robert Cross

Thanks Russ for yet another dose of pseudo science from a wacko website as described by Media Bias/Fact check : "Watts Up with That is a 100% climate denial website. They cite junk science and reject the consensus of climate scientist globally in the pursuit of their denial." This site has been known to print "unverifiable information that is not always supported by evidence." The site may be "untrustworthy for credible/verifiable information."

The real facts are not going to com from a former TV weatherman (Watts) or Russ Steele who merely parrots the bunk information put out by the fossil fuel industry in their pursuit of profit while endangering the lives of billions of people. To think that climate change is some kind of political football and tens of thousands of scientists the world over are wrong, and Russ and Watts are right, is absurd beyond the belief of rational human beings.

re: MAGA @12:26PM

The odd thing is that I looked up 'Skeptical Science', and this is the first thing that I hit.

http://www.populartechnology.net/2012/03/truth-about-skeptical-science.html

Seriously dude, if you are going to argue about climate science, either learn something about it yourself or quote bonafide experts.

George Rebane

More examples of messing with the messenger and not addressing the data - sources and methodology. Most ludicrous is the face off between the Left's 'thousands of consensus scientists' vs Steel and Watt by themselves on the other side. Yet that is the best they have ever done and the only thing they are still limited to in their apologetics. The list of skeptical scientists are available on the web along with their reasoned arguments for not embracing preventable man-made global warming.

But as Einstein said of 'scientific consensus' when a team of the world's leading physicists were proposing to visit him and argue that relativity was wrong - 'In science you don't need a team to disprove a theory, one person is enough.' The corollary to that is that science doesn't proceed through consensual truths - one scientist's proposition that withstands experiment is enough.

MAGA CoVfefe!

'''Watts up with that''' reminds me of the OJ Simpson dream team playbook,,,spew a bunch of mumbojumbo to try to confuse the jury...OJ walked...but was he guilty???

Pretty impressive that Steele and Watt '''singlehandedly''' have outsmarted NASA,,, NOAA,,,universities,,,and everybody else!!!

Gregory

Yes, Watts is a propagandist of a sort (written without judgment, it just means he's promoting his point of view)... but so is John Cook of the wretchedly misnamed skepticalscience website whose mission is to stamp out skepticism. Watts and Russ are both users of meteorology products, Watts in presenting the weather, Russ (in his past) was (someone will correct me if I'm wrong) was a USAF flight navigator; both need a great deal of knowledge of weather processes.

Yes, climate isn't weather... it's the trends in weather. Weather records, weather projections. But you can't (and probably never will be able to) project future weather accurately, and the further away the projection, the more wrong it will be. Face it, MAGA Dougie, Cross and others, including the FUE, you're just doing in the blogs what Brownshirts did in person four score years ago... stomping people who dare not follow the one party line.

The canard of thousands of scientists lined up on one side and Antony watts on the other is ludicrous. Watts is mostly a news aggregator, and there are at most 50 senior scientists driving the IPCC process to their intended results, one of the reasons why there hasn't been ANY success in narrowing down the central question: if you double the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, what is the change in temperature be?

In 1979, it was a range estimated (and published in the Charney Report) to be from 1.5C to 4.5C, which, by a great coincidence, is the same in the last IPCC Assessment Report. But physicists working outside the very political IPCC framework are narrowing in on a number between 1 and 1.5C. At some point, without the fabulist claims of alarmists panning out, people will come back to sanity. Yes, CO2 warms the climate somewhat but it does appear to be much lower than natural variations.

Yes, "Archie" 147pm, but at least if the congress does nothing, they won't be doing the same wrong thing that had been done time and time again after each major massacre since the first one, the Saint Valentines Day massacre by Al Capone's gang in the 1920's: find the gun guilty and make it harder for the law abiding to own and carry one.

Gregory

"jeffpelline says:

Meanwhile, no word on the local hard-right blogs, Rebane, etc., about this massacre. Go figure."


No word on Jeff Pelline noticing a word on Rebane's blog a full day before this false post of his.. In fact, it was me, yesterday, at 2:19pm in this thread, followed by "jon smith" making a comment a few minutes later that "That "thoughts and prayers" thing doesn't seem to be working very well."

I'd counter that the "thoughts and prayers" do what they are intended to do. It's a signaling of shared grief.


Really, Jeff, don't you even check these things before your fat fingers blurt them out?

Looks like Trump dilemma has borrowed a page from the Clinton saga.

Stormy Daniels saved a dress she wore during sex with Trump — and plans to test it for his DNA: report

"“Sources close to Daniels tell The Blast the shimmering gold mini dress with a plunging neckline was kept in pristine condition after her alleged 2006 sexual encounter with Trump at the Lake Tahoe hotel suite,” the publication writes. “We’re told Daniels is planning on having the dress forensically tested to search for any DNA that proves she isn’t lying about her tryst with Trump, including samples of skin, hair or… anything.”

The Clinton playbook? So the difference is now the media is after Trump unlike them enabling and protecting Clinton. I say "who cares".

Gregory

Punchy 338pm ... who doubts it? What does it matter?

That's the problem with believing that Clinton's problem was about private sex between consenting adults, and not lying under oath,aka perjury in a serious sexual harassment civil case.
