WINNING: Even Millennials Don’t Care President Trump is a Climate Skeptic

Trump’s job approval tops 50%; A majority of Millennials approve of Trump; Nearly half of Generation Z voters approve of Trump; Trump is winning back Hispanic, Independent, college educated and urban voters

President Trump’s job approval rating has seen a post Mueller report boost! We called it a few weeks ago. But that’s not the complete story as to why the president has reached a peak in his job approval rating. Trump is also riding high on positive economic news-a record high stock market, low unemployment, and solid GDP growth at home. At the moment President Trump’s approval rating is higher than Obama’s at the same point in his presidency-Zogby Analytics had President Obama at 48% approve/52% disapprove on 05/09/2011.

Overall, a slim majority (51%–30% strongly and 21% somewhat approve) of likely voters approve of Trump’s job as president, while 48% disapprove-37% strongly and 11% somewhat disapprove; only 2% were not sure.

President Trump scored well with younger Millennial voters aged 18-29 (51% approve/46% disapprove) and Generation Z voters aged 18-24 (49% approve/51% disapprove). The President also received a good approval rating with voters aged 25-54; he received a majority job approval rating from older Millennial voters aged 25-34 (53% approve/43% disapprove) and middle aged voters aged 35-54 (59% approve/38% disapprove). Among the oldest voters surveyed-aged 65+, Trump’s disapproval rating was the strongest (59% disapprove/41% approve). As per usual, the president did well with men (58% approve/40% disapprove) and he improved his support with women (44% approve/54% disapprove).

fish 12:05 - Yeah, right. This is campaign garbage talk.
Good luck ever getting it enacted. They don't even try to control the border - how would they control firearm sales? Can you imagine any of this becoming law? Prohibition will look like a cakewalk. Notice there are never any details. You can get a "Federal Firearm License" or just buy whatever from Jose just across the border.
From the NYT (Matt Stevens) "Aspects of Mr. Booker’s 14-part plan are among the most progressive gun-control measures suggested by a candidate seeking the Democratic nomination for president and are likely to face sharp criticism from gun-rights advocates like the National Rifle Association."
Progressively idiotic. Sharp criticism? Laughter, more like.
No wonder Biden will get the nod for the Dems - he's smart enough not to go off the rails like these other loons.

Bwwwwaaahhhhaaaahhhaaa! Will the real littlest commie congress-critter please stand up, please stand up!

"Like, hello America, AOC here again, but this time from Washington, D.C., which is named after our country's first president, George Washington D.C. Like, did you know that?" impersonator Ava Martinez began.

"I came up with my plan after we were watching, like, the most important documentary on climate change. It’s called 'Ice Age 2: The Meltdown,'" the mini AOC told her fans. "That’s not me saying it, that’s science! My Green New Deal will cost, like, 93 trillion dollars. Do you know how much that is? Me neither. Because it’s totally worth it. If sea levels keep rising, we won’t be able to drive to Hawaii anymore!"

The young actress then showed off what she referred to was her "electric car" she bought as well as for her boyfriend, Riley Roberts.

"I just got this electric car. It’s eco-friendly. Everyone has to drive one under my deal. And that’s why I bought one for my boyfriend, too, Riley, using campaign donations. Well, you bought it for him. Did you know that?" she said.

Not if Biden gets the nod. The MS news media will simply ignore his gaffs. They won't exist. Biden will become the 'calm, intelligent and experienced voice'. Or something like that. You wait. Trump will find himself running against a combination of Einstein, Gandhi and Mother Teresa. The MS news media will make him that. All previous incarnations will be non-entities.

William Barr is having some fun.

“According to multiple reporters, Barr approached Pelosi following the National Peace Officers Memorial Service in Washington, shook her hand, and asked, “Madam Speaker, did you bring your handcuffs?” Pelosi smiled and said the House Sergeant at Arms was present if an arrest was necessary, to which Barr laughed and walked away.”

Nice to see Brennan turn on Comey who will in turn turn on Brennan. Nobody verified the Steele Dossier on the first FISA warrant and Comey knew without a doubt Steele’s whole story and sources were bunk and Steele himself was unreliable and untrustworthy BEFORE the second FISA warrant was submitted. Steele got the ax and Comey withheld all that and more from FISA court on the second FISA. The FBI did check the Russian source Steele used who had direct ties to the Kremlin and Putin. The FBI agent conclusion was the Russian was lying and not credible. The Russian source is a man who is on US sanctions list (!) and who once wrote a book 6 years ago on how to lie to and buy off journalists, roflmao! Steele got fed Russian propaganda.....for the parts he wrote. Glenn Simpson wrote other parts from his sick mind based on Glenn’s movie script he wrote in 2007. Just had to change the characters. Sold the script to Hillary. :)

Brennan got the same stuff from Steele through “outside channels” and instead of taking the raw intel and sending it through the CIA process, Brennan the former Gus Hall supporter took Steele’s rumor paper straight to the Gang of Eight and Harry Reid to spread it through the Congress for them to call for Congressional hearings. Brennan can’t ask for a FISA warrant, so he had to call Comey. Brennan is now saying it’s up to FBI to investigate and verify the Steele stuff the Agency passed on and Comey has to now cover his ass and blame Brennen. Both are cowards and both will toss the other under the bus. Cool beans.

The question remains why the four FISA warrants were needed, three of which were renewals. The second one was for Jan, 2017, but the 3rd and 4th FISA apps were for a sitting President. Who were they spying on then? The White House? Spying on a sitting President?! Carter Page left the Campaign well before the 1st FISA warrant was issued. Barr did say to Congress last month that he was looking into the FBI and “other intelligence agencies.” The plot thickens.

Yea!

In a dramatic move, the Trump administration announced Thursday it is canceling a major funding contract with the California bullet train, throwing the state’s troubled high-speed rail project further in doubt.


The Federal Railroad Administration said it has terminated a longstanding contract agreement to pay the California High Speed Rail Authority $928,620,000 to use toward building the initial bullet train line between through the Central Valley and later connecting to the Bay Area and Los Angeles.

Federal officials said, in a press statement, that they took the action because the California rail authority “has repeatedly failed to comply with the terms of the (2010) agreement and has failed to make reasonable progress on the project.

Based on this the Prez knocked it out of the park with todays announcement -

The latest Harvard/Harris Poll reveals that about four-in-six Americans, or 66 percent, said they oppose the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) releasing border crossers into the U.S. while they await their asylum claims process. Instead, voters said border crossers should be immediately turned back to Mexico while awaiting their asylum hearing.

Less than 35 percent of all voters said they supported releasing border crossers into the U.S. — including only 32 percent of swing voters and less than 30 percent of self-described “moderates.”

Meanwhile, nearly seven-in-ten swing voters, or 68 percent, said they want to see border crossers turned back to Mexico when they attempt to claim asylum at the southern border. Likewise, 85 percent of Republican voters and 55 percent of black Americans said they, too, wanted border crossers seeking asylum to be turned back to Mexico.

Two senior intelligence sources said that Qassem Suleimani, leader of Iran’s powerful Quds force, summoned the militias under Tehran’s influence three weeks ago, amid a heightened state of tension in the region. The move to mobilise Iran’s regional allies is understood to have triggered fears in the US that Washington’s interests in the Middle East are facing a pressing threat. The UK raised its threat levels for British troops in Iraq on Thursday.

Now, imagine her singing these lyrics:

The sun on the meadow is summery warm.

The stag in the forest runs free.
But gather together to greet the storm.
Tomorrow belongs to me.

The branch of the linden is leafy and Green,
The Rhine gives its gold to the sea.
But somewhere a glory awaits unseen.
Tomorrow belongs to me.

The babe in his cradle is closing his eyes
The blossom embraces the bee.
But soon, says a whisper;
"Arise, arise,
Tomorrow belongs to me"

Oh Fatherland, Fatherland,
Show us the sign
Your children have waited to see.
The morning will come
When the world is mine.
Tomorrow belongs to me!

These lyrics weren't written in prewar Germany, it is from the play and the movie, Cabaret!

Attorney Generals Badge? Secret Service business card with his name on it? WTF!?!

Breitbart News has exclusively obtained a heretofore unreported-on police report from days before the 2016 presidential election that describes how a cocaine pipe that authorities determined was used to smoke cocaine was found in a rental car returned to an Arizona Hertz location in the middle of the night. Also found in the vehicle were several personal effects of Hunter Biden, then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son, like two of his DC driver’s licenses, multiple credit cards, and personally identifying information like a Delaware Attorney General badge and a U.S. Secret Service business card that police said bore his name. Hunter Biden, according to the police report, had rented the vehicle from a location in California with the intent to return it to the Prescott, Arizona, location, where it was discovered the morning after it was dropped off with the drug paraphernalia and Hunter Biden’s personal effects inside.

Instead of returning the car keys to the drop box where after-hours returns are supposed to go, the car was returned—according to the police report—with the keys left in the gas tank compartment of the vehicle. Also found inside the vehicle, per the police report, were two drivers’ licenses both bearing Hunter Biden’s legal name Robert Biden, as well as “some credit cards with the same name,” “a secret service business card,” and an “Attorney General’s badge” all contained inside a wallet that Hertz rental employees discovered—along with a pipe that Hertz employees thought and police later confirmed was used to smoke illicit drugs, as well as “a white powdery substance in the arm rest of the vehicle.”

The Russians played us for the suckers we are. Steele’s sources were two Russian misinformation experts.

This is huge....for those who are ill informed. Now, the format sucks and it’s done from a hotel room cause Dan is on the road. Not studio quality and no sidekick. 1 hour 7 minute podcast. Worth watching...or you can wait until the journalists piece it together in the coming weeks. Again, long and not from the studio. If you can’t watch it sometime, so be it. If you are short of time or im patient, you can jump to 41 minutes or 1 hour 4 min. If you got the time, Dan lays it out.

https://bongino.com/ep-982-outed-heres-the-real-russia-scandal/

Interesting side note that Steele told a bunch of fakenews stuff (like the Russian Consultant in Miami that does not exist and Cohen’s Prague trip that never happened) to the State Department ten days before the first FICA warrant. That discredited information was passed on to the FBI Eurasian liaison with the State Department who in turn passed it onto the FBI agent in charge of the Russian investigation, Peter Strzok. The footnote in the FICA app say Steele was talking to no one but Fusion GPS and the FBI. Steele was talking to everybody, including State, lol. The footnote was a known lie. John Solomon nailed it earlier this week. Repost.

“This is quite important,” Brock said. “Under normal circumstances, when you get information about the conduct of your source that gives rise to questions about their reliability or truthfulness, you usually go back and reevaluate their dependability and credibility.

“It doesn’t always mean immediate discontinuation of the source. But there are policy requirements that you exercise some form of prudence, and conduct further vetting to determine whether this source can be utilized going forward. This is particularly true if the source’s information is being used in an affidavit or some other legal process.”

“FBI confidential sources such as Steele sign a confidentiality agreement and undergo a training session on the do's and don’ts of informing, an event known in intelligence parlance as an “admonishment.” FBI records show Steele underwent “admonishment” training and signed an acknowledgement on Feb. 2, 2016.

“The FBI fired Steele as an informant on Nov. 1, 2016, claiming he was caught leaking to the news media. But by that time Steele’s intelligence already had been used as the main evidence to secure a Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant against the Trump campaign on Oct. 21, 2016. Repost:

“The public version of Kavalec's email blacked out Laycock’s name as the recipient and listed an attachment file when it was delivered last month to the conservative group Citizens United under an open records request. The blacked-out version contained only a single visible sentence, in which Kavalec wrote the FBI supervisor: “You may already have this information but wanted to pass it on just in case.”

“Officials familiar with Kavalec’s email would only describe the contents as having to do with something Steele told the State Department during an Oct. 11, 2016, visit. They said the attachment was not a copy of Steele’s now-infamous dossier or a complete set of Kavalec’s typed notes from her conversation with the informant. Rather, they say, it was information Steele shared with Kavalec that she felt needed to be transmitted to the bureau.”...(Bill sez, yeah, like information that Steele said he represented HRC, roflmao.
And Comey said he never knew for sure that Steele was being paid by the DNC/ HRC.

“Hello Comey, what do you mean the FBI found out that Steele’s sources were Russian Intelligence officers who were tight with Putin, one who wrote a book on how to spread misinformation.....”. “You are going down, Jim.” “No, you are going down, John.”
———————————-
“Former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy offered up a tip Monday night for congressional investigators probing the Obama administration’s handling of the Trump-Russia investigation.

“So whoever’s investigating this, tell them to look for emails between Brennan and Comey in December 2016,” Gowdy said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, referring to former CIA Director John Brennan and former FBI Director James Comey.

“In the interview, Gowdy did not say whether he has knowledge of what is in any Brennan-Gowdy emails. But Gowdy also suggested that the FBI deemed Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous anti-Trump dossier, as a less-than-credible source.
Comey signed off on FISA warrants to spy on Carter Page using the fake news Christopher Steele dossier as the central piece of evidence.

“And John Brennan tried to inject the dossier’s accusations into the 2016 election by setting up Harry Reid to leak it to the media.

“If Gowdy is right – and both men viewed Steele as unreliable – then they both knowingly peddled lies to try and take down Donald Trump.”
——————————
“What’s in the redactions is equally bad, some would probably say worse than what the American people can see today," Nunes told Hill.TV's Buck Sexton on "Rising" on Wednesday.

“So just to be clear, there’s 400, roughly 75 percent of them are blacked out," he continued. "So people learned over the weekend that the dossier indeed was what led this FISA, so they used that dossier and pieces of that dossier to push that FISA out to Carter Page.”

"I would argue that what’s left in there is really bad, if not worse, but also what’s not in there is even worse than what people can see, what people can’t see."

Hmmmm. What could be worse than what has been revealed by the FISA warrant so far??? Gowdy did say he has read the super duper classified information that not even the IG could see and it could well destroy the US relationship with a key ally.
———————————
—“Are you interested in whether or not the world's premier law enforcement agency relied on a work product produced and paid for by the Democratic National Committee?" Gowdy asked. "If they relied on [the dossier] half, is that significant enough for the American people to know? If they relied on it at all, would you want to know that? If you're the judge, do you want to know if a third of what you're providing to the court was paid for by a political opponent?"

"Whether it was relied upon 80% or 20%, do you want to know that the DNC paid for material that was never vetted, and was included in a court proceeding? Do you want to know whether or not the primary source in these court proceedings had a bias against one candidate? Do you want to know whether he said he'd 'do anything' to keep that candidate from being elected president?"

New SAT scoring system

Bill Tozer

“The man behind the new plan to assign adversity scores to every student who takes the SAT is the same person who championed the controversial Common Core K-12 curriculum standards that remain a point of contention among parents, teachers and political leaders in many states.”

The polls got it wrong on the conservatives numbers, a pattern?

Scott Morrison has swept to victory in a sensational federal election result that defied the polls and cements the Coalition’s power.
The Coalition is on track to win government, fending off Labor and Bill Shorten’s efforts to take over as prime minister.
As it stands, the Coalition is headed to form a minority government at least, but could still reach the 76 seats needed to form a majority government. There is no longer any path to victory for Labor.

In a jubilant victory speech at the Liberal Party official election night function at Sydney’s Sofitel Wentworth hotel, Mr Morrison acknowledged the surprise win saying, “I have always believed in miracles”.

Disappointing yet no surprise they would screw over the poor people of color who may have voted for the idiots! This kind of crap is why you will see better minority numbers for Trump in 2020.

... it appears RL has taken my name in vain and declared I personally must have supported the QAnon BS that interfered with the Grass Valley Charter Elementary (my silence is evidence against me)... but he still has be blocked from responding. So I'll paste it here:

Moose turd pie is a specialty of the local left, RL. I thought you knew.

So, now you're dumping on me for not standing up and disavowing the silly side of the right wing, when I still am delusional enough to keep telling you I've never been right wing. I'm a radical moderate on the one dimensional scale you have, a line (that's one dimensional) from left to right. Personally, I'm not sure who deserves the most derision, the idiots who came up with the Comey Secret Message Decoder Ring or the snowflakes on the Left who didn't stand up to the idiocy.

Second, the Grass Valley Charter is one of the worst schools in the County, academically speaking, and I can't say their loss of a fundraising opportunity is that much of a loss to the kids of Nevada County.

Adding to what got blocked, I never was a Birther, RL. Never. It is amazing what crap comes from the pen of RL Crabbman.

Don Bessee

So how does some internet idiocy have anything to do with you @ 438? Are they saying you have an obligation to pontificate on something that makes no sense to anyone for some reason specific to you?

;-)

Gregory

It's a shared guilt of everyone who posts here, DB. To be silent is to be thought guilty by the 'toonist in residence.

The farther he gets from cute vignettes about life in the past in these here hills, the more the lack of a realistic perspective holds him back. Although, hanging around a life of drugs and nekkid wimmen does have its allure.

Don Bessee

Guilty of what, not sticking to their approved conversation topics? Fuck that.

RL Crabb is a typical lefty. Here is a little ditty to smack him on his sorry ass.

"“That’s what they are saying you have to do to win the Democratic nomination. Well, I don’t believe it,” Biden declared. “I believe Democrats want to unify this nation. That’s what the party’s always been about. That’s what it’s always been about. Unity.”"
Uh - what?
Unity?
Unity in what?
Oh, who cares!
Just get with that UNITY, man!
We'll be united!
Oh boy!
The NAZIs were united - the ChiComs are getting the Chinese untied. It's wonderful!
Lemmings are united!
We do really deserve the leaders we elect.

The Rebane set has indeed been remarkably silent about the collapse of their latest and greatest right wing conspiracy. After Jade Helm, Pizza Gate, and now QAnon one would think the great white warriors might be just the slightest bit contrite and stick with harassing the left wing geese who poop on their well-watered lawns, and complaining about a youthful audience who had the nerve to attended a comic book movie while the elder Rebane’s sniffed and peered through rhinestone rimmed opera glasses. Let them have their adult laps.

Still not one word about the QAnon incident from Rebane, Bessee, Idaho Scottie, Greggie, Fishy and Toddy. It’s pretty obvious they’ve bought into the whole scheme, but are too chickenshit to admit it in public. Why not, guys? You’ve promoted the Obama birth certificate conspiracy for years. Why not swallow the rest of your half-baked turd pie?


Please provide your proofs of those narrative affirmations from me bitches! LOL

Scott O

Ha - "It’s pretty obvious they’ve bought into the whole scheme, but are too chickenshit to admit it in public."
Well, it must be!
I have absolutely no idea what the hell a 'QAnon incident' is.
But some how 'it's obvious' I've bought into it.
Sorry Crabby - you shit yourself on this one. Nothing but a total BS lie.
'It's obvious' means I'm lying and have no proof.
And Crabb is too chickenshit to post his BS here.
He hides on his own blog and smears others with his lies.
What a guy.

George Rebane

QAnon?? Can someone explain what this has to do with RR, and what Bob Crabb is railing about? I feel kinda left out of something that people say I should be concerned about. What is it?

Todd Juvinall

Hell I don't know. Maybe Crabb is on his period?

Who has been kicked off Twitter, Google, YouTube or became a social outcast this month? A: Too many to list for sake of saving space.

Jordan Peterson got booted from Goggle. That means he also lost his G-mail account. Candace Owens got banned, but that was to expected after she fried a Dem or two during Congressional hearings on race or hate or something. Actually, she corrected and schooled the Distinguished members. And I haven’t figured out how she could be tarred as a white supremacist...twice now! Or, this guy from Reason. Well, he looks white.

“While Campbell took to misrepresenting Soave’s role at the hearing, calling him names on Twitter, and printing parsed quotes that misrepresent his views, Soave published the entirety of his prepared remarks. Campbell was looking for a villain, and instead of digging into the facts, he cast Soave as a white supremacist, which could not be further from the truth.“

At least the Enemy of the People are consistent. Par for the course. If it feels good, do it.

QAnon? Haven’t a clue and not worth wasting my time on Urban Dictionary.
