The Dark Lord of Liberal Lament Land has gone full thought police from what I have been sent. So its a "community radio station" that gets taxpayer dollars and now it is to be a slave to the pink knit hats approved talking points demands the Dark Lord! Sounds like the Dark Lord is a wanna be Goebbels or should that be Google employee.

Walt:

Mueller’s edict from the beginning was to investigate charges related to Russian collusion,” says Dan. Anything not related to the collusion scheme had to be farmed out of the special counsel’s office right back into the standard federal justice system. The prior charges they had on Cohen which he plead to before, were plead to in the southern district. Not under the jurisdiction of the Special Counsel. Meaning that Cohen’s charges…may have been criminal as they’re alleging but had nothing at all to do with Trump or collusion. Why do we know that? Because the Special Counsel referred it out…if it’s not collusion they send it back into the federal system. The fact that he took a plea today to charges levied by the special counsel’s office is significant because it says again that Mueller is bringing them back in to the collusion side despite the fact that Cohen is on the record saying ‘I have nothing to do with the collusion side.’

Dan’s advice to everyone today? “Take a chill pill. Cohen is not credible at all.”

Quotes from Trey Gowdy on Comey suing to block the GOP supenoa to answer questions behind closed doors. Comey wants a public forum. Of course he does.

“Did (Comey) interview Hillary Clinton in public? Did he interview George Papadopoulos in public? Did he interview Michael Flynn in public? Did he interview Huma Abedin…Cheryl Mills? Has the FBI ever conducted an interview in public and has the FBI ever conducted an interview where you are limited to five minutes, which is what happens in Congressional hearings.”

“The last time I saw Jim Comey in a public Congressional hearing, almost 100 times he said ‘I can’t answer in this setting,’” Gowdy continued. “So why in the world would he want to go back to a setting where he knows he can’t answer all the questions? I’m sure he only wants me to have five minutes. I’m sure of that,” he said.

Legalized voter fraud. And in Ca. no less.
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/11/30/exclusive-election-fraud-expert-californias-ballot-harvesting-favored-democrats/
“A lot of things that we perceive to be voter fraud … are actually legal,” Eggers said. “So California changed the law so that ballot harvesting allows for a third party … participants to collect ballots or harvest them from voters and then be able to drop them off at polling places. They just changed the law in 2016.”

“As soon as these people get on the rolls, you now have political campaigns, regardless of whether people should be voting or not, the political campaigns now have free license to go find you, and essentially even if they don’t find you, just turn in a ballot in your name,” Eggers continued. “That’s what ballot harvesting is.”

M @ 8:10 am

As a side issue, voter fraud comes of greater interest to me in practice than the laws on the books. Did you know that with Motor Voter in CA, if a voter registration is filled out and the box that asks if you are a US citizen or not is left blank, the DMV workers are instructed to put a check in the box that says “Yes”. This is because of a lawsuit filled by a group claiming voter suppression in CA which specifically targeted the DMV. So, as a result, voter registration applicantions through the DMV which are not properly filled out are erroronously put on the voter rolls instead of tossing the form or sending a letter to the applicant. That is how it is done in practice where the rubber meets the road, pun intended.

Another problem in practice is someone applying for a driver’s license or State ID in CA showing the DMV employee their green card. They are given a voter registration form, even though the state employee knows full well they are not citizens. I don’t blame the workers for following orders. It’s part of their job if they wish to retain it.

The above is something that those who react vehemently in knee jerk fashion to ANY suggestion or slightest hint of voter fraud fail to address. Honor system? We need to look at the system.

“ I checked it out n Snopes, my research is complete!” Perhaps you are asking the wrong questions. Perhaps.

Walt 839am - Yes, and as I mentioned in the most recent Scattershots -

[28nov18 update] As the last echoes of the election die down, we should always be reminded of the words of Josif Vissarionovich Stalin - "It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything."

Yeah, that CA race with the R lady up by 14 points the morning after the election and seemingly appeared to be the first female Korean-American in Congress lost....after a week or so of counting ‘provisional ballots’. That one seemed odd to me.

Todd Juvinall

Apparently, the State GOP is waking up to the fraud perpetrated on the election by the democrats. A bit late however. As we saw on election night many R's had comfortable leads and as the late ballots were "counted" the democrats were getting 58% of them and overtaking the leads to claim victory. Well a small change in the law that I did not know about seems to be the opening the democrats used to stuff the ballot boxes on election day. Previously only a family member could turn in a ballot but the change for this election was ANYONE could turn them in. So now the democrats stole 8 seats in California and the rest will be stolen in 2020.

Also, Marcus Breton of the SacBee has a screed against Giants owner Mr. Johnson for his donation to Ms. Smith in Mississippi. It was trash of course and just another example of a minority crying "racism" and hate for white people. I sent him a email and told him he is in fact the racist and fascist as he does not understand free speech or even free press. These people in charge of the inkpots are dsgusting racist dogs.

Todd Juvinall

Here is one way the democrats stole all those seats. Pretty creative I would say.

George Boardman

I encourage you guys to keep believing Republicans got clobbered in California and lost the House because of cheating by Democrats.

That means you won't change a message that clearly didn't resonate with a lot of voters this time and won't work in 2020.

Don Bessee

Way to go team Pacific Legal -

The frogs don’t live there. But the agency said the site met the legal definition of "critical habitat" because its rare, high-quality breeding ponds and distance from existing frog populations made it essential for the species’ conservation. With some modifications, the agency said, the site could provide a suitable home for the species.

The landowners sued, arguing their land shouldn’t be considered a viable habitat and that the government failed to fully consider the economic impact of its action. Both the district and Fifth Circuit courts ruled against them, with the Fifth Circuit ruling the decision was made under the agency’s discretion and therefore was unreviewable, according to the Supreme Court’s summary.

In its ruling in Weyerhaeuser Co. v. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Supreme Court sent the case back to the Fifth Circuit and ordered it to take a closer look at the economic analysis and the definition of "habitat," which represents at least a temporary victory for the landowners. But the declaration that the agency’s decision was subject to judicial review at all may be the more significant take-home point.

"Fish and Wildlife has always said, and the courts have agreed up until now, that you couldn’t question [their decisions]," said Mark Miller, an attorney with the Pacific Legal Foundation who represented the landowners. "Now, the Supreme Court said that was wrong, and they said it unanimously. You have a right of access to the courts."

George Rebane

GeorgeB 1100am - Does this gleeful advice mean that you are a Democrat Mr Boardman?

Given the ideological demographics of today's CA voters, if you step away into neutral territory, what advice re messaging would you then give Republicans? Specifically I'm interested the kind of advice that would differentiate them from Democrats of, say, the last 40 years. Having today's Republicans parrot the more centrist Democrats of 1980 will not cut it, but such counsel will confirm that the Dem Party has moved markedly leftward (i.e. toward globalist collectivism).

Paul Emery

Well spoken George B

I keep encouraging Todd to get to work and help rebuild the Republican Party to be viable opposition in California but he is caught in a time warp and thinks everything is fine.


Ironically I was tossing out newspapers this morning and found one from Nov 3rd that had a editorial piece by Todd that headlined "That Coming Wave has Turned Red" It's purely delusional. Todd still believes the Republicans won the Nov elections.

We need at least two viable political parties in California but the Republicans can't even field a team anymore. I wonder how many Todds there are dragging the party down.

Walt

Hummmmmm.. Boardman and Emery are a little too happy that Proggys "may" have rigged the process. They must be BAMN members.(By Any Means Necessary)
Kinda like their pissy attitudes about all the great things Trump has done. The sooner their side returns America to the welfare state their side created under "O"and Co.,, the better.

Paul Emery

Was there anything illegal about the election Walt that could have swung the votes? Details please.

More complaining from the Right instead of looking at the core reasons the Republicans lost. Antique Repubs like Walt and Todd need to be retired to allow new contemporary voices andI don't mean Trumpers who are in for a harsh '20 election.

George Rebane

PaulE 1159am - Paul, if we cut the quibbling and accept your and Mr Boardman's imprimatur on the CA election, then Mr Boardman's implied message comment (1100am) makes a cogent point. I would also then ask you to join Mr Boardman to answer my 1133am question. What advice would you give Repubs seeking resurgency?

Todd Juvinall

Paul Emery | 01 December 2018 at 11:38 AM

How is it you think we did not win Paul Emery? You have the House, we kept the Senate. We have the Presidency, And now we have the SCOTUS. Sounds to me you lost and I won. If you disagree then prove it.

If anyone needs to get going it would be you and your green libs. Hell you don't have one seat anywhere in America! I have most of the states and their legislatures and Governors. How many do you have?

I have put a link up showing how the democrats swiped all those seats in our state which exposes Paul Emery as someone who does not read other's posts.

Boardman, yes we now have lost California but 2020 will be a remake of 2016 and you will have to endure four more years of Trump which is fine with me. And pray tell, what are your policies for America? We are waiting for your top ten.

C'mon, George - surely you didn't really believe you would get any kind of straight answer from those two.
Yes guys, we know - the demographics are changing in California. The conservatives are dying off or leaving the state. The bad is driving out the good. The R's 'need to be more relevant'! That actually says precisely nothing. There really isn't any point in the Rs being 'mee-too' Dems. May as well just register and run as a Dem.
The really funny part is that folks like Boardman and Emery see their hated Rs run out of office and their wish has come true. The lefty Dems get to run everything. And it will go down in flames. Then what? Admit they were wrong? Heavens no. All they can do now is constantly blame absolutely everyone else in the world for California's steady march off the cliff.

Rock Hunter

Bessee- "How low socialists can go"? I guess Tump's swipe at Bush went right over your head. Not hard to do. On many occasions Trump has made a mockery of Bush's 1,000 points of light phrase. Just last summer in Montana he quipped, "1,000 points of light? What in hell is that supposed to mean? I can't even believe that was dreamed up by a Republican (Bush)." In the memo dripping with crocodile tears he released today, Trump used (with obvious forked tongue in cheek) the phrase "1,000 points of light" to offer his condolences. I think that was pretty stinking low ball, even for Trump. But of course Todd will come back with something to the effect that it was just a joke.

George Boardman

I can see why Todd would reject a former speech writer for Pete Wilson and a scholar at the Hoover Institution when he writes: "...it's a story of a GOP that's disconnected with an electorate that's educated, evolved and in search of solutions to everyday problems like health care, housing and transportation."

"Educated and evolved" certainly doesn't describe Todd.

Don Bessee

'an electorate that's educated, evolved and in search of solutions' Really, are we talking cali?

The state ranked 41st in conditions that help children succeed, 39th in school finance, and 30th in achievement.

“California has refused to take meaningful action to address the education issues facing our state, so it was unsurprising to see California’s poor grade remain the same year over year,” Silicon Valley entrepreneur Dave Welch, who financed a failed challenge to California’s teacher-protection laws, wrote in an email. The lawsuit, known as Vergara v. California, maintained that tenure and layoff laws harm poor children and those most needing access to high-quality teachers.

Anyway I have more intelligence in my little finger than you do in your bloated body. I am quite happy with myself and I know you are not and that makes me smile.

Walt

Since Emery and Boardman have no problem with the way Calif. has rigged the system for Progressives to stay in power in perpetuity,
Just how much state over regulation, new tax after new tax can they happily endure? Or is the thinking,, "well,, we don't have that many years left, so screw it! Let's see have far Socialism will go "

Paul Emery

George Rebane asks:
What advice would you give Repubs seeking resurgency?"


Good question George since it's in all of our best interests to have a viable two party system in California.

First of all the Repubs need to distance themselves from Trump. there is a strong possibility that he will take a severe fall in the next two years and that he has lost popular support throughout the country and will likely be stripped back to his core which at it's optimistic best is probably is in the high 30's. That's even more severe in California so unless the Repubs find another way to brand him his core California support is likely below 35% and that's optimistic. So that means unless he has a strong recovery, support for him will be a liability for a Republican rebound.

Next the Repubs need to craft an appeal to urban voters. they have the support of the countryside but that has translated to having only 7 or 8 house seats as of Nov 6. Trumps profound unpopularity with urban woman will be a hill to climb when it comes to proposing policy that would appeal to more women. If Roe v Wade becomes an issue it will make that almost impossible. The policies Trump has to adopt to energize his base are profoundly unpopular in Califoria-Guns, abortion, environmental positions, etc so the extent that he relies on those tactics to be viable in '20 will work against him in California.


As far as the Republican Party in California , they have to realistically access why they did so poorly. They have lost Nevada County for example, long a gimme for Republicans and while it didn't change the district 1 final outcome it should be a warning as to how badly the Repub brand has fallen in urban regions, of which Nevada County is. La Malfa also lost Butte County as well, another example.

Assemblyman Dahle is an example of the right direction. He is a reasonable man with a reputation for working across the aisle in advocating Repub positions.

In short, avoid the Trump trap, develop support by advocating positions on issues that appeal to urban voters and choose reasonable candidates that can work with the Dems.

There is much more but that's what comes up right now.


George Rebane

Well, I did try. But Mr Boardman's view of CA voters as an " electorate that's educated, evolved and in search of solutions to everyday problems like health care, housing and transportation" kinda shoots down that conversation thread. As my commentaries (with profuse citations), readers like DonB above, and an abundance of test data have shown, in the aggregate CA voters are anything but how the gentleman characterizes them. And the only solutions to the enumerated problems the Dems have shown is to tax and regulate us into a bigger state government that is demonstrably dysfunctional in almost every dimension. And our super-majority legions of gimmes in the voting booths see not a thing wrong with the direction we're heading.

We are way beyond the tipping point for any return to reasonable governance to avoid the inevitable and carefully concealed bankruptcy. The only thing certain is that it will not be the Dems' fault.

Don Bessee

AI in all its glory -

But then, at around the 4:08 mark of the video, CIMON starts to act a bit squirrely. Beyond this point, the demonstration looks like a scene taken from 2001: A Space Odyssey, with CIMON playing the part of HAL 9000 and Gerst as David Bowman.

Unwilling to move past music mode, CIMON accuses Gerst of not being nice, and asks him to stop being so mean. The shared glance between Gerst and Auñón-Chancellor at this point—at the 6:04 mark—is absolutely priceless. Acting like a three-year old, CIMON asks, “Don’t you like it here with me?” and promptly starts to sink toward the deck. And then he asks the crew when it’s time for lunch.

George Rebane

PaulE 158pm - Thanks much for the expanded answer. The only thing missing, besides a general exhortation to be more Dahle-like, are specific policies that can still be called Republican. Recall my 1133am, recommending Repubs to abandon their ideals to become more like Dems of yore is not a two-party solution - it would just yield a center-Left party and a hard core socialist party. Right now we're basically under the control of one socialist party in Sacramento that has demonstrated its distance from what used to be 'the center', has outlined a series of socialist programs it wants to implement, and has the numbers to bring it about in the near future - all to the strong approval of those about to receive new and/or more government checks.

Walt

Where did you rip that off from Paul? Those sure ain't your words.
Your real good at using others words. Your real crappy at using your own.

Paul Emery

George

Political strategy requires pragmatic not philosophical positions. The Republican brand is so diminished in California it will take a few election cycles to reclaim a viable percentage.

Paul Emery

Just off the op of my head this is an example:

"As a Republican candidate for the House of Representatives in "whatever district on the coast" I support Senator Feinstein in opposing offshore drilling off the coasts of Santa Barbara. It is in the best interests of California that our coastal communities are protected from the potential of oil spills that have plagued the Gulf states........etc etc... You get the idea.

Paul Emery

All my words Walt. George asked an intelligent question that I was happy to engage in answering.

Walt

No Paul, plagiarizing.
The mark of a true urinalist.

Gregory

Punchy 226pm

In other words, a pragmatic position is one that uncritically accepts the Democratic mob position. Bipartisan means GOP (and Libertarians, not that we count) taking the Democratic line.

In the offshore drilling position you suggested for California GOP, in exchange for an uncritical acceptance of fracking on land, perhaps. But I don't sense that sort of quid pro quo pragmatism is what you had in mind.

Todd Juvinall

So let me see. The democrats have run California's legislature all my 68 years except onw, 1996 and let's look at their accomplishemnts for the people and the trillions of dollars in taxes.

Water shortages
Forest fires
roads and bridges crumbling
housing shortages
The most regulations on building houeses
Highest or ear top taxes
Fees for everything
The most regulations on everything
Lousiest schools
Once free colleges now expensive
Highest welfare in America
Highest poverty rates in America
Highest electrical rates
Highest gasoline prices
Most litigation

And many many ,more wonderful things the democrats have done for us.So Paul Emery how would you fix any or all of that?

Paul Emery

Todd

The question George asked and that I responded to was about a strategy the Repubs would need to adopt to regain a reasonable political presence in California. What is your strategy for the Republicans in California?

Remember this from Marat Sade

"Talk is cheap, the price of action is colossal.

Gregory

I was improvising off the top of my head as to what could be popular position for a Republican running for the House in a coastal District. You cannot get in a position to compromise if you do not have Representatives in office.

For whatever reason the Republicans have fallen to he point if irrelevancy in California and they need a strategy with which to stage a comeback.

Todd, again , what are your ideas?

George Rebane

PaulE - "Political strategy requires pragmatic not philosophical positions." Well said. And very true if the utility of your politics is just ideology-free power. Arguably the master pragmatic politician of the 20th century was Hitler; he changed his policies, programs, and partners more frequently in the post-WW1 years than anyone could follow, always taking the most pragmatic path up the power ladder in the years of German chaos (1918-1934) as so well documented by historian Heiden in 'Der Führer'.

But the Repubs can't make their party platform 'we just want to be in power, whatever it takes'; only Hillary and Pelosi seem able to get away with that message. And doing something like permanently opposing offshore drilling or fracking is in almost all cases unreasonable if cheap energy is what the economy needs. And doing it to prevent climate change is insane. But, of course, not for the Left. So does political pragmatism that abandons ideology give the only - 'my way or the highway' - bipartisanship with the Dems in California? Remember, Repubs are a national party, so what they surrender in CA can and will bite them in ass elsewhere.

Paul Emery

George

The off shore drilling bit was just an off the top of my head example of a political strategy component and was not meant to present a position to debate.

Let me ask you this, in your view do the Republicans in California have any chance to gain a reasonable amount of elected support in the age of Trump?

Walt

How many times will Paul cut and paste the same pile of manure?
Funny,, Paul won't say who said that. If a "repub" did,, sucking up to a Proggy line of thinking is maybe why he lost. If he/she/it would side with vermin on that, just what else would he/she/it cave to? That's called a RINO.(Paul likes RINOs)

Paul Emery

Walt

The question George put on the table is what do the Repubs need to do to regain political viability in California. What are your ideas? Here is George's question.

"Given the ideological demographics of today's CA voters, if you step away into neutral territory, what advice re messaging would you then give Republicans?"

Bill Tozer

Off thread, but another good piece by former Justice Department prosector Andrew Mc Carthy on the Meuller report.

scenes

"The question George put on the table is what do the Repubs need to do to regain political viability in California. "

Become not-Republicans. I'd say that the primary reason that the parties aren't balanced is demographics, and that changed over time. Short version: The Republicans died or left and were replaced by Democrats from Mexico or Latin America. A smart move by Team Blue.

George Rebane

re scenes 422pm - Yep, that sums it up nicely and what I was referring to with my changed "ideological demographics". And only the tried and true Democratic message has been shown to work with CA Hispanics, legal and illegal.

PaulE 335pm - No, not unless Trump starts handing out free money.

Walt

Well Paul, Nevada County used to be a fine place. The your city LIBS moved here, and brought their city problems and ideals with them.
Liberalism is toxic, a SO toxic, it's polluted the water table.
A city LIB hears a gunshot off in the distance, and calls the cops.
A city LIB sees a person burning some brush in a rain storm and calls the fire dept.
Now we have city street vermin coming here on a regular basis to try and rob businesses. I can't wait to hear the news that some city pavement ape gets shot holding up a local business. (Then of course there will be the "He did't do nuffn'! Prosecute the business owner! He should have robbery insurance! That's what it's for!"

Walt

Speaking of free money,,,,
https://www.foxnews.com/health/california-mans-face-transplant-cost-1-5-million-medical-center-says

This guy tried to kill himself, screwed up, and lived. Now other people get to pay to fix him.
So much for personal responsibility.(something a LIB doesn't believe in)

Walt

A LIBs take on ballot harvesting.
"“We beat Republicans on the ground, fair and square,” said Katie Merrill, a Democratic consultant deeply involved in November campaigns. “Many of the field plans included (ballot harvesting) as an option to deliver voters or their ballots” to the polls.

Those efforts involved identifying voters who might support Democratic candidates and ignoring those who wouldn’t.
In one Orange County household, for example, both the husband and wife were longtime Republicans, said Dale Neugebauer, a veteran Republican consultant. Democratic volunteers came by the house four times, each time asking to speak only with their 18-year-old daughter, a no-party-preference voter, and asking if she wanted them to pick up her signed and completed ballot."

Looks like these guys were on to something.
"Before its passage, a group opposed to the bill wrote: “AB 1921 would allow anybody to walk into an elections office and hand over truckloads of vote by mail envelopes with ballots inside, no questions asked, no verified records kept. It amounts to an open invitation to large-scale vote buying, voter coercion, “granny farming”, and automated forgery. AB 1921 solves no problem that a simple stamp can’t solve.”

And that's pretty much what happened.

You might want to liksten to the Ukrainans right now when they are talking about Russians massing on the boarder.

Sept 26 2118

“Experts in Ukraine say this could be the next [Russian] operation from this flank, from the sea, near Mariupol,” Valeriy Chaly, Ukraine’s ambassador to the U.S., said in an August interview at the Ukrainian embassy.

U.S. and Ukrainian officials say Russian military activity has also been increasing in the Azov Sea, which Ukraine and Russia legally share under treaties signed in 2003.

The issue of the Rs staying relevant by becoming Democrat Friendly is laughable. If it's important to have a balancing and contrasting party then the Rs have to NOT become Dem-lite or even Dem-like.
As has been predicted from years ago, the demographics in CA have tilted heavily to the left. It's free stuff vs freedom and CA has gone for free stuff. That's what the people want. Other western states are in a similar fix. Tiny physical areas of high density population outweigh the vast rural regions of CA, OR and WA. The widely differing values, interests and demands of the rural vs the urban create a chasm in politics that simply can not be spanned by 'shared values' because there are very few to no shared values. There exists now a movement in eastern WA and OR to leave their respective states and join ID to form a large mostly rural state where the citizens can feel they have better representation. No new state would have to be formed and the existing capitol in Boise would simply expand a bit to accommodate the added acreage. Seattle/Olympia and Portland/Salem will never allow it to happen, of course. All the yap from the left about 'democracy!' is pure BS. As Paul has admitted, POWER! is what drives the left and baby you better just get out of the way.

This came over on the news feeds and I had to take a second -

In exchange, China will agree to purchase a “not yet agreed upon, but very substantial” amount of agricultural, energy, industrial, and other product from the U.S., to reduce the trade imbalance between the two countries, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in the statement.

,,,Bill,,,you mean this???

While it’s true that undocumented residents living in California can obtain driver’s licenses, the state has not passed any laws that also provide them the right to vote. The New Motor Voter Act was passed in an effort to improve voter turnout, and while this law does automatically register citizens to vote when they obtain or renew their driver’s licenses, that action only applies to citizens who have already attested and/or documented an eligibility to vote.

Exactomondo, my fine fellow. That’s the law. However, my point was that may be the law, but that’s not the practice.

Everyone who is not regeristered to vote gets a voter regeristered form when asked. And they have to ask. Same as the local welfare department in our county seat.. Because of the lawsuit (after the law?) voter registration forms when turned in at the DMV are filled in as ‘yes’ IF they were turned in with the question Are you a US citizen, yes or no, was left blank. Nevada is real bad for passing out voter registration forms to those with green cards applying for a driver’s license as well. And Mid-west state and a Southern state.......

No worries, my fine chap. There will be no repercussions. This is California we are talking about, afterall. You have the keys to the kingdom.

No wonder you guys are so quick on the draw to suppress so many things.
There is no R comeback in CA. So now is all yours to lie steal, cheat and plunder to make it into some place that exsits somewhere over the rainbow and certainly not like the other places in the US where you have had free reign. This time will be different, oh refuge from the city. And you can welcome all the illegals with big open arms, and save the planet from impeding Doom, not to mention finally getting your hands on all that money that evil corporations and rich people have in their vaults stuffed with cash. It belongs to everybody and you want your cut. It’s only fair. California is dead to red, all blue now for decades. Maybe the bullet train will be done by then and only the business class can afford to ride it.

BillT: "This is California we are talking about, afterall. You have the keys to the kingdom."

Well, that's the thing isn't it. It's with no small irony that the Pelline/M/Emery Blue Mob crybullies their feelings on the internet in righteous indignation against the Angry White Male Nazis. In reality they are in the driver's seat.

It isn't like the Bad Orange Man has had much effect at all on their personal lives, aside from some tinkering with the tax code and perhaps a small surcharge on cheap Chinese plastic goods, but you'd think that he burned down their trailerhouses. The state .gov, ooh la la, that's where the action is, and we'll be treated with another few thousand good ideas presented as legislation every year.

tl;dr People who are in charge pretend to be victims. Hilarity ensues. They are angry at conservatives for wearing such short skirts.

BarryP: "George. Do you know who Yuri Bezmenov is?"

Just to pipe up, I expect that everyone has seen at least parts of the youtube interviews.

That sort of thing strikes me as a flawed analysis in that it tends to rotate around the 20th century fixation with economics as a fault line. My own opinion is that the West is succumbing to something different.

George Rebane

BarryP 756am - Nothing more than what one can quickly google about the former KGB defector who predicted a scenario for a future process of US decline. While we may quibble with his particulars, he did repeat what was already known in the early 1980s, that the road to ruin lay through control and destruction of the US education system. That common denominator has been part of every such scenario, including that of Rebane Doctrine which I have dispensed in more detail here on the RR soapbox.

Bill Tozer

Here is pretty fair article that addresses potential voter fraud concerns. Mind you, it’s ok to have concerns and be skeptical when the Matrix is not perfect. Vulnerabilities is the operative word.

“In reality they are in the driver's seat.”

Yes indeed. The own it in CA. What drives them batty is even if they get 93% of the vote, they have to seek out the 7% to get their mind right. Spoiled children are the most unhappy children. Nothing can ever satisfy them, nothing can ever be enough or good enough.

Paul thinks, "Rs staying relevant by becoming Democrat Friendly"
That from a guy who changes religions and ethnic "identification" whenever the mood strikes.
No Paul,, MOST people are not chameleons.

Todd Juvinall

Some think there are 4 million illegal votes in California. Most R's won on election night yet all lost after two weeks of democrat "mining". I have asked the FBI to investigate.

And Bezmenov’s subversive theories explain leftists intent to destroy our American culture. Very interesting.

Since "M" is doing his part to downplay MS-13,, is he in partnership to grow his weed? MEX cartels are all over these hills.

So that’s why some lack the ability to reason.

“If a customer desires a toy, it should be one of his or her choice without classification by gender. Customers should simply be offered the choice of toy,” the statement reads. “(Example: Would you like a Transformer or a My Little Pony?)”

“The motion goes on to cite a 2015 study from the Association for Psychological Science, which reported that "boys are more likely to play with toys that develop spatial intelligence and reasoning than girls. These skills are especially important for success in academic and professional domains, including science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)."

Who are the "some" of your quote that "Some think there are 4 million illegal votes in California. "

Keep in mind that the investigation into Trumps claims that he won the popular vote has long ago been discredited and disbanded and that's with a Republican House and Senate.

Speaking of election results the finals are in for Nevada County showing Audrey Denny winning over LaMalfa by 11%. Dems won practically all State and Federal races.

Are you saying Walt that there may be some illegality in Nevada County?

If not, who did? Who is going to D.C.?
Let's hear the logic of the pony tail. (we all know what gets extruded from under pony tails)

Just demonstrating the Blueness of Nevada County. LaMalfa is a remnant of the days when Republicans were a viable political party in California. they are down to 7-yes that's 7 Congressional reps, the lowest in who knows how many years.

Walt
Are you saying that there may have been some illegality in Nevada County elections?

Why is it the libs never answer our questions? Is it the questions are too difficult? Or the libs are just stupid? California is definitely a lib state and I listed all their achievements, well some, that have turned this once great state into a shithole. Yet there is crickets. All those millions of illegal aliens voting in those SoCal districts have certainly changed things. Next they will make the Mexican National Anthem the state song.

I will make easy for Paul to understand.
There are laws on the books that make extortion illegal.
Yet unions are extortionists.

The state passed a few laws making vote fraud real easy, and extremely difficult to catch.

Yet you post some story trying to say Repubs were guilty of it.
Were you saying LIBS got beat at their own game?

Better lift that ponytail out of the way.
