Sinema is polling up four over McXally in Arizona. That will be the matchup. Joe is too old at 86 and that is all the reason for his numbers.

Todd Juvinall

Sacramento Bee page 1B top right. The liberals loons of Del Paso Heights in Sac are dissing the Pastor of their church for being in a meeting with Trump on jobs and other issues. Of course they interview some punk ass man that has probably never created one job and let him rant against the Pastor. This is why there is a divide when one man cannot even meet with another without liberals going beserk.

Prediction: Probably the most covered race in 2018 will be the Georgia Governor’s Race.

The hype has not started yet, but the media, led by the NYT, will create the impression of a real horse race going on and how important the down to the wire race is to the future of mankind. The media always tries to create a horse races by extensive coverage of select contents, then shift focus and tone to the candidate they really preferred from the start.

She has already made the cover of Time. A novice, Black woman, middle age spread, gap in her teeth, a genuine real down to earth person with a powerful personal story.

“People tend to remember the first time they heard Stacey Abrams speak, and it’s easy to see why. On a Friday afternoon in May, the Democratic nominee for governor of Georgia is at a union hall in Augusta, telling a story about her father, a college-educated black man who was relegated by his race to working at a shipyard in southern Mississippi in the 1970s. The family had one car, so Robert Abrams would sometimes hitchhike home in the middle of the night. When he didn’t come home one time, the rest of the family set out to pick him up and found him half-frozen by the side of the road, having given his coat to a homeless man. They asked why he, a poor man on a lonely road at night, would do such a thing. And Robert said, “Because I knew you were coming for me.”

You can hear scattered sniffles in the union hall as his daughter pauses. Then she roars: “I am coming for you, Georgia! Help me get there!”

——Powerful stuff. At a local union hall, no less.

M 1042am – Your thinker continues to be on the blink. Nowhere have I or anyone else (here and elsewhere) claimed knowing how an ID card holder would vote. All we claim is that such IDs would cut down voter fraud. It is people like you who promote unqualified universal suffrage and open borders, and oppose any documentation of franchised voters in America. And yes, inevitably there are some room temp Repubs out there. But here’s the difference that your intellect cannot grasp – the Right does not promote programs to destroy their families and opportunities to work and build businesses.

Swamper Manifort not doing well

Manafort trial day 4: The high-flying consultant's financial double life

'They never told us about any income deposited in foreign accounts,' Manafort's accountant told jurors.

Here's his defensice tactic

"Manafort's defense team, which is fighting off bank- and tax-fraud charges, has suggested that false statements on his tax returns were understandable oversights by a busy man. "

Nice work if you can get it.

Fish....yep, and she is anti-gun. Who else would Time run to to get an opinion? Straight to their leader, with a not so subtle veiled comparison to Obama. :)
And she is not a novice as such as I wrote. She is a state legislature. Novice to national attention. Point is my prediction is of all the races lining up for 2018, this one will get the most national media frenzy attention. I could be wrong...

Jim Accost Acosta:

As Mollie Hemingway astutely put it, “Donald Trump did not create distrust of the media, distrust of the media helped create Donald Trump.”

And another interesting addition, Research Intelligencer polling indicates that the top three most trusted TV news brands are BBC at 90%, Fox News at 87% and PBS at 86%.

Be gentle George......Dougs mind is beset by so many things, so many problems..... we should excuse him for the dubious logic routinely employed during his visits here.

George Rebane

PaulE 1121am - You've never shared with us the logic underpinning your calling "Manifort"(sic) a "swamper" - care to enlighten us?

Todd Juvinall

Mainofort is facing 305 years in prison for an offense that usually gets 3-5 years. And he is in solitary confinement. Glad to see Paul Emery supporting the tactics of the East German Stasi and the KGB. I had no idea you support them. WOW!

Paul Emery

Sure George

Manifort is accused for being an unregistered agent of a foreign country. Here's details of the charges agaisnt him and Gates, who has flipped. If this isn't swampy what is.

"Prosecutors allege that Manafort and Gates worked as unregistered agents of the government of Ukraine and the Party of Regions, a pro-Russian political party led by Victor Yanukovych. While serving as president of the former Soviet republic from 2010 to 2014, Yanukovych was closely aligned with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The indictment says that up to $75 million flowed through overseas accounts controlled by the two Americans. Manafort is alleged to have laundered more than $18 million he used to buy property and goods in the United States. Gates is alleged to have transferred more than $3 million to accounts he controlled.

Paul Emery

Todd

He is in solitary for his own protection and was placed there for bail violations. Your beef is with the Judge and his lawyers not me.

Todd

Are you saying 3-5 years is typical for the crimes he's accused of? We have local bank fraud convictions that have longer sentences than that.

"Indictments includes 16 counts related to false individual income tax returns, seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts. five counts of bank fraud conspiracy and four counts of bank fraud. "

George Rebane

PaulE 1139am - The ‘swamp’ and hence “swampy” has been reserved for the nefarious goings on of the federal government, especially in the DC area, as characterized by the operations of it various bureaus and agencies. Your (and the Left’s) expanding that definition to cover anyone you don’t like that has had a relationship with a Republican before they entered government appears to be yet another unfounded expression of your TDS. For people wanting to participate in a reasoned debate, language matters.

Scott Obermuller

OK - I'll have to warn you guys again about dissing Paul for voting for Obama. Paul only voted for Obama once when Obama said he was against gay marriage and illegal immigration.

Paul Emery

George

Would slime work for describing Manifort? I didn't realize that the Republicans had a franchise on variations of use of the word swamp when describing the residence of political scum.

Todd Juvinall

His own protection? Just like the Robinson journalist in England arrested for doing reporting on men accused of raping 100 little kids was placed in "protective custody" for his own protection. Where is your story for him Paul Emery? Anyway the prosecutor is no better than Stasi and his tactics are supported by you so that makes you a commie sympathizer.

Todd Juvinall

Regarding Manifort. I thought you were a "innocent until proven guilty" guy Paul Emery. You are really no v=better than a Stasi agent.

George Rebane

PaulE 1203pm - It appears that indicted means guilty as charged; OK. 'Slime' is a ubiquotous attribute not connected with place, time, or function, therefore a much more accurate label for your opinion of "Manifort"(sic) - he spells it Manafort, but what the hell, we know who you mean.

Republicans have no franchise on the meanings of any word (unlike the Dems on, say, racist); but those of us who read the nation's media learned early what the specific meaning of 'swamp' was in the public forum. Apparently you missed that part of the national dialogue.

Bill Tozer

The Manafort case is shaping up to be one big tax evasion case. The other case in another court about failing to register as a forgein agent (as was his partner Tony in Ukraine ) is a nothingburger. Usually, the Justice Department sends someone a letter encouraging them to get on the stick and register. “Come on guys, you forgot to fill out the paperwork, please don’t drag your feet any longer.” More akin to an out of compliance letter...a friendly reminder notice.

https://www.vox.com/the-big-idea/2017/11/3/16596484/fara-foreign-agents-registration-manafort-enforcement-scandal

Don’t get me wrong. Tax evasion is not something to be swept under the carpet. Manafort, if convicted for tax fraud, finds no favor with me. The bank fraud is the ole Liars Loan thang, lying on loan forms. It’s what they nailed the Pakistani guy to stole the Democrat Congressional Caucus Committee’s server, complete with all the files from 40 House D members. Got him on lying on loan apps, but I digress.

Most folks have no sympathy for tax cheats. The biggest tax cheat in American history was on Marc Rich. He was represented by Hillary Rodman’s brother who was able to secure a pardon from President Bill Clinton after arranging a 10 million gift to the Clinton Library via Marc’s ex-wife. That pissed off a bunch of folks and even had the Lefties saying that ain’t right. That just seemed so wrong at the time, yet was in the
Resident’s purview.
They busted Leona “The Queen Of Mean” Helmsley for writing off work down on her house and writing off a gold gilded bra, lol. She was sentenced to 16 years but only did 19 months and given house arrest. Of course, her “We don't pay taxes; only the little people pay taxes," garnered her little sympathy. Or was that

None of that qualifies as The Swamp, per se. While the Swamp does not have to include only our entrenched bureaucrats (lobbyists, elected politicians, and crony capitalism comes to mind), whatever Manafort did years prior to the 2016 Campaign is not the Swamp, IMHO.

Hmm. Maybe that writing off the gold bra was somebody else. They caught many. Willie Nelson, Sen. Tom Daschle, Jesse Jackson Jr, Pete Rose, Wesley Snipes. Average time on gets for tax evasion/fraud is about 2 years or less.....

I care more that Manafort gets a fair trial with his civil liberties not trampled upon more than anything else. Whether he is good, bad, or ugly, his civil liberities must not be violated. That is my bottom line.

Some of you may have also enjoyed Dinesh D'Souza's intelligent books, lectures and movies. I'm looking forward to seeing his latest...."Death of a Nation" in which he examines fascism and white supremacy and exposes hidden history and truths.
This documentary draws parallels between the dramatic fracturing of the nation over Abraham Lincoln's presidency and the presidency of Donald Trump. Not since 1860 have the Democrats so fanatically refused to accept the result of a free election. That year, their target was Lincoln. They smeared him. They went to war to defeat him. In the end, they assassinated him. Now the target of the Democrats is President Trump and his supporters. The Left calls them racists, white supremacists and fascists. These charges are used to justify driving Trump from office and discrediting the right 'by any means necessary.' But which is the party of the slave plantation? Which is the party that invented white supremacy? Which is the party that praised fascist dictators and shaped their genocidal policies and was in turn praised by them? Moreover, which is the party of racism today? Is fascism now institutionally embodied on the right or on the left? Through stunning historical recreations and a searching examination of fascism and white supremacy, Death of a Nation cuts through progressive big lies to expose hidden history and explosive truths. Lincoln united his party and saved America from the Democrats for the first time. Can Trump--and we--come together and save America for the second time?

Portland’s Patriot Prayer Rally Could Be Most Violent Since Charlottesville, Activists Say
The last far-right rally by Proud Boys and Patriot Prayer was declared a riot. Experts think this weekend could be even worse than 2017’s deadly “Unite the Right” event.


Members of the two violent far-right groups, Patriot Prayer and the Proud Boys — both of which have deep ties to white supremacist organizations — plan to rally in Tom McCall Waterfront Park at noon Saturday. The so-called “Gibson for Senate Freedom March” is being organized by Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson, who is running for Senate as a Republican from Washington state.

Here is one of his sisters of the left -

In addition, Jeong repeatedly tweeted about killing men, and joked that, even if only “bad men” were killed, that would still include all men.
She tweeted in 2014, “kill more men,” and seemed to sadly state at one point,
White women were not spared from Jeong’s rage — during the 2016 election she eloquently tweeted “fuck white women lol.”

She also tweeted “fuck the police” on several occasions, including one with a gif of anime characters actually physically attacking a police officer.
In one tweet from 2014 she wrote, “let me know when a cop gets killed by a rock or molotov cocktail or a stray shard of glass from a precious precious window.”
“Cops are assholes,” she said in 2015.
“If we’re talking big sweeping bans on shit that kills people, why don’t we ever ever ever ever talk about banning the police?” a tweet from 2016 asserts.

2:51 pm

Oh Don, that is too funny. As discussed here for a long time (with Scenes’ invaluable input among others) the SJWs that slithered out from their Grievance Studies classes will tell you you cannot be racist against whites, particularly white men. Impossible. You can say anything you want against or about a white male and it is not being racist, duh. We are the cause and sole source of all society’s ills because America is bad and America is bad because it was founded by White Males.....and not just White People, but....drumroll please....White Christians!!! Gasp, the horrors, the horrors.

If pressed, they will say that not liking a group of people is not racism. I reckon they are technically correct, but I would not be one to experiment with that theory on these boards. Ok, I can’t resist. ‘I don’t like albino Pygmy eskimos...but I do not judge them or feel superior to them. I just don’t like them. Fuck them. I hope they die a slow painful death.’ See, not racist in the least. :)

When pressed, the Grievance Studies majors will tell you that Y-Ts don’t need no stinkin’ safe place because all of America the Racist Place is the whitey’s safe place. Makes sense to me.

The real issue here is not if the new NYT editor should be fired or hired. They can hire anyone they choose. The real issue here is the NYT laid down the marker. No longer are old tweets from decades ago or tweets from even two years ago are to be counted against one and being called out on the carpet for those racist tweets....as long as the target is white folk. Old white folk, suffering old white folks, white women is ok. Joy Reid tweeted homophobic Tweets, and got some heat, but apologized and not fired. Guess that is ok. She did not do what Rosanne did, cause only white folks can be racists, duh. Yep, a new marker has been thrown down and we be on the wrong side of the tracks.

And interesting sidebar to the Jeong story is that her defenders say she was just being satirical. That we white folk just don’t get her kind of comedy. Hmm. I reckon they are right. And all this time I accused the America Haters of being a glum lot with no sense of humor. Hey, Chris Rock stopped doing stand up comedy routines on college campuses because he said they have no sense of humor. Guess Mr. Rock and I were wrong. Mea Culpa. They do have a funny bone, but that sardonic stuff must be over my head. I am such a worm.

In closing the brief, the judge wrote that at no point in this ruling, or the previous one, did the court contend that the DHS didn't have "the statutory or constitutional authority" to end the program.
"Rather, the court simply holds that if DHS wishes to rescind the program - or to take any other action, for that matter - it must give a rational explanation for its decision," the judge wrote.

The Judicial system of America has been so corrupted by the left it is truly scary. A Judge back east ruled that DACA must be re-upped. Now we had a SCOTUS that said it was unconstitutional as Obama did it with a EO. And Trump is trying to honor the law by getting it over to the Congress and rescinding a unconst EO. Honest to GOD how does a man with a brain see all this and rule the way he did? A Uncinst EO is to be allowed? This is lunacy.

Paul Emery sure is out of the loop on most issues. DiFi's driver a Chinese spy was off his radar. But Paul Manafort's suits were on. WOW!

"Warner stated: “This is one where ‎there is no Democratic or Republican ‎answer since clearly the goal of our ‎adversaries was not to favor one party ‎over the other. It was to wreak havoc and ‎split divisions.”

Warner made those brief closing remarks at the end of Wednesday’s Senate intelligence committee hearing on “foreign influence on social media” that focused significantly on the 2016 election."

ID required? Which side are you on?

Activists said the policy could even snare U.S. citizens, usually older and poorer and often minorities, who don’t have a driver’s license or passport.

“The hysteria over Russia’s interference in our election is now biting the anti-borders left in its behind. In the big picture, I’m not sure it matters one way or the other, but the irony’s delicious.”

In a related matter, I wonder what the new NYT editorial board member Sarah Jeong thinks of discrimination against Asians in college placement. :)

Well George it's time she retires anyway. Never much cared for her myself. Nothing on Breitbart, my usual source for news from the shrill right. Apparently it's old news that no one really cares about.

Punchy, you are kinda embarrassing yourself, but that’s none of my business. It’s been on the front of the Drudge Report all day long. Apparently, CBS Frisco, that right wing shrill, cares about it. But, by all means, continue on embarrassing yourself and your employer, Mr. News Director.

BillT 816pm - 'My side' on the voting franchise requires some demonstration of knowledge, ability to reason, and vetted citizenship. Vetted membership in various classes in our society is already required and demonstrated by the presentation of an appropriate document (e.g. passport for international travel, and soon 'Real ID' for domestic travel).

FISH, good find. But we all knew that was true. The lamestream media has been picking and choosing what they decided was the "news" all my life. Having experienced lying Editors and "journalists" personally in my tenure as a Supe and Chairman of the NCRCC the populace has been subjected to "fake news" forever. Paul Emery is a student and practitioner of fake news and has zero cred anyway. But it is fun to poke his belly with the truth.

“Which side is Facebook on?” the groups demanded, suggesting that the internet giant must choose between law enforcement and illegal immigrants”

I have no doubt which side is your side or my side is on. I found the “irony’s delicious” and the parallels between the arguments pro and con for voter ID, illegal alien immigration, santuary cities, and buying an ad on FB. Do you side with law and order, or do you side with the illegal aliens? You don’t need an valid ID for just international travel. You need a valid ID to board any commercial aircraft, even to fly from Sacramento to San Jose. Who do you side with? National Security or illegal aliens? Who do you side with? Terrorists of law abiding citizens?

Who do you side with? An establishment that requires ID to buy alcohol or illegal aliens? Who do you side with? The rule of law or the rule of the mob?

Just the fact that illegals are demanding FB take sides is informative in and of itself. In fact, they expect that FB sides with them over all else. The laws and policies of both the public sector and private sector do not apply to them. Wonder who put that notion in their heads? :)

Hmmmm. Spoken to the Public Safety Committee Of all places.

Kevin De Léon defended the widespread practice by illegal aliens of using fraudulent documents to work and obtain taxpayer-paid benefits.”

Which one would you look to say, you, my child, are expendable for someone else to come over here and not follow the law and have a nicer life?”

Its the economy stupid, From the Bureau of Labor Statistics -

Manufacturing jobs in 0's 8 yeas (192,000)

Manufacturing job in Trumps 18 months +373,000

;-)

Don Bessee

This was long past due -

Congress fulfilled that goal in two ways. First, the definition of a “covered transaction” has been massively expanded, with a focus on “critical technology” industries. In the past, there was an expectation that a foreign entity had to essentially buy out a company in order to trigger a CFIUS review. That jurisdiction has now been expanded to include such actions as adding a member to a company’s board of directors, even in cases where an investment is essentially passive.

The second element Congress added was requiring that CFIUS receive all partnership agreements that a company has signed with a foreign investor. Often in a transaction, there is a main agreement spelling out the overall structure of a deal, and then side agreements with individual investors with special terms not shared with the wider syndicate, such as the right to access internal company data or intellectual property. By requiring further disclosure, CFIUS will have a more holistic picture of a deal and any risks it might add for national security.

From the FB article:

"Facebook’s attempt to stop Russian interference in the U.S. elections has enraged activists who say illegal immigrants will be banned from buying political ads on the internet platform."

That is a beautiful sentence. I think I'll re-read it a couple of times and shake my head wonderingly.

Radio Sputnik is running a story on Facebook right now.

It's funny what an ugly deal FB is in any case. Everyone has friends/acquaintances that feel the need to blurt out political stuff 24/7 on Facebook. They should stick to political forums and leave the straights alone. It's a matter of using an appropriate space for your own particular kinks. Twitter is probably ground zero for that kind of thing.

I like reading posts from Doug Whathisname and Crickets on GeorgeR's blog. On Facebook it would get darned tiresome.

Bill Tozer

Scenes,

Finally finished the Milo article. I cleared my mind and masticated it slowly piece by piece over several days. One does not read brilliance like that everyday or in a rush.. The part towards the end about Middle Age art really got to me . Yes, there is no other culture that can compare in uniqueness or beauty or the soaring spirit of man. From the mundane to the Divine. Also helps explaines so much going on today in the socio-political realm, as well as dishonesty, tunnel vision, authoritarian behavior, and laziness of our SJWs and humanities departments. The why behind it all. Thanks again.

Paul Emery

George

Trump is calling you a fool. He said only fools would disagree with his tariffs, something I know you are opposed to. .

Trump tweets today

..Tariffs will make our country much richer than it is today. Only fools would disagree. We are using them to negotiate fair trade deals and, if countries are still unwilling to negotiate, they will pay us vast sums of money in the form of Tariffs. We win either way......

Walt

Paul. Tariff is just another form of subsidy. We know how you despise subsidies. So keep pointing that bony finger. A few more are pointing back.

Bill Tozer

If you think the economy is going good today, just wait until fair trade kicks in. We ain’t seen nothing yet. Yes, there will be some short term hits to specific industries, which is a given. The goal is the reduction of tariffs. We hit China with 200 billion more in tariffs, they responded with 60 billion, lol. We have a 20 trillion dollar economy and the Chicken Littles are running around screaming the sky is falling over 60 billion in higher tariffs. We hold all the cards. Noticed the price of Canadian blueberries has dropped like a rock at the supermarket. The big rush before the tariffs kick in, I reckon.

Conventional wisdom sez trade wars are bad, everybody looses, nobody wins. As Reagan increased our nuclear arsenal to get the Soviet Union to reduce theirs and back to the negotiating table, what appeared counter-intuitive worked like a charm.

Conventional wisdom sez the R’s will lose 32 House seats or so in 2018. Conventional wisdom sez a shut down of the government will hurt the R’s....the party causing the shut down. The shut down led by Newt in the Clinton years resulted in a wholesale slaughter of the D’s in the following elections and the shut down led by Reagon resulted in passing his defense bills getting through.

Conventional wisdom said there was zero chance of Trump winning the electoral college, not even a hundred to one chance given all scenarios. To this very hour, the ones looking like fools are our discredited popinjays. Maybe blaming it all on TAD is being too charitable.

Sorry, but po' ol' Bessie is posting rightwing propaganda again. No wonder you people are so out of touch, living in an alternate universe of fact like you do.

The American Mirror is a sham website.."extreme bias, overt propaganda, poor or no sourcing to credible information and/or is fake news...." known,"to publish hoaxes and/or disinformation....may be very untrustworthy...Not all stories are sourced to credible information."

Oh yeah, it's the dems who are mentally ill not trumpski.. the book by Omarosa is pure fiction.. she was only around him for years. she might know if he is losing it or not. Have any of you ever met the man in person, been around him for long periods of time? I didn't think so, but you know he is not mentally losing it, like many professional therapists seem to think, because he said so.. right?

Ok Robert Cross, now it’s your time to shine! Please show us where Don’s Post is inaccurate. Was the video of the Botox Queen fake? Where her words put into her mouth by someone else?
Please, please, please back up your claim that the contents of the link Don posted is fake, inaccurate, and proof positive of “ living in an alternative of fact”.

Please, Mr. Cross, please point out what you dispute in the link so we all can be informed like you. Was the color of Nancy’s dress wrong? Please, enlighten us! Please point out the errors. Heaven forbid we live in an alternative universe of fact..

Come on, Mr. Cross. It’s he monent you have been waiting for. Prove Don wrong.

“They did this handing a massive tax cut to the wealthiest families. 83 percent of the benefits went to the top 1 percent, couple trillion dollars added to the national debt. And then they said, ‘How are we going to be pay for that? We’re going to cut Medicare and we’re going to cut Social Security. $1.4 billion dollars in Medicare — no — $1.4 trillion dollars in [Medicaid] and half a trillion in Medicare. It’s stunning. Together, two trillion, 1.4 Medicaid, half a trillion Medicare.”
