,,,Trump cannot make up his mind...as usual

"Just two months ago, President Donald Trump responded to the growing health crisis fueled by e-cigarette use, particularly among teens, by calling for a ban on flavored vaping products. Six weeks later, however, Trump indicated—without giving his reasoning—a softening in his stance on e-cigarettes. Now, just over two months after his initial statement, the initiative to ban flavored products favored by teens appears to have been completely snuffed out. Why? “As he had done so many times before,” the Washington Post reports, “Trump reversed course—this time on a plan to address a major public health problem because of worries that apoplectic vape shop owners and their customers might hurt his reelection prospects.”...Slate





But Carlos the corpse has all the(heavy metal tainted ) weed he can smoke.

Car-load is just another nit-wit leftie.
"one federal standard so you cannot buy a gun in one state with little to no background checks and take it to another state."
Does this mean everyone gets strip-searched and their car torn apart every time they cross the state border?
Does this mean if I get my gun registered, I can cross the state line and then shoot some one?
What if criminals don't want to register their guns?
Car-load hasn't got a friggin' clue and he knows it.
Car-load is like all the other lefties - they know they can't stop gun crimes - they just want to piss off the conservatives.


Piss off is OK Scott,, it's the pissed on, like "carlos" that's even worse.

Anyone with a koolaide free brain saw this coming -

The organization has now conducted 18 separate focus groups in nine different American cities since late October.

Those cities include Des Moines, Iowa, Orlando, Florida, Charlotte, North Carolina, Phoenix, Arizona, Miami, Florida, Atlanta, Georgia, Columbus, Ohio, Detroit, Michigan, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. America First Policies has gathered 36 total hours of focus group data from the participants, all of whom are independents or swing voters in their respective cities.

The biggest takeaway from all the groups, including one in Pittsburgh thatwas conducted after the first House Intelligence Committee public impeachment hearing last Wednesday that featured State Department officials Bill Taylor and George Kent, is that swing voters are not being moved in the slightest against Trump by the impeachment narrative Democrats are offering.

After a moment of silence when the focus group conductor asked the room of independents if Trump should be impeached, a man finally said: “Not even close.”

The man continued when asked why the Democrats are pushing for impeachment:
This is their platform. This is all they got—and what they got is nothing. They want to keep to politics and Trump is not a politician. They are going to do everything they can because he bucked the system. He exposed what the draining the swamp and everything means. That’s the thing—they don’t even have anything close to valid. It’s just nothing. Instead of focusing on policies, they’re trying to do this to win the election.

Up next was a woman, who said she is not a Trump supporter but thinks the president is getting railroaded:
I’m not a Trump supporter by any means, but I totally disagree with what they’re doing. I know he’s not perfect, but by the same coin he’s right there and he tells you how it is. I don’t agree with all of the things. But at least he’s trying to do things.

After that another woman and another man—both of whom are not Trump supporters—made the case that Democrats’ impeachment goals are meaningless because the Senate will clear Trump even if the House impeaches him.

A man in that group also summed up what independents are thinking, dismissing the Democrats’ impeachment agenda:
When the news of this first broke, I was sitting there thinking okay these are conversations that mostly went on and then you step back and look what they are—from what media outlet—and you go, okay, his personality is arrogant. We’ve all seen him say something stupid. However, on the flip side of that, all this secrecy—the smoke and mirrors—the unwillingness to unmask the whistleblower out of fears of safety. Come on. What are you hiding?

Generally speaking, the swing voters wish Trump would tweet less attacks on opponents—and not say certain things sometimes. But they did also reveal that while the voters find Trump’s abrasive personality off-putting at times, they do like that he is a “street fighter” in the words of one and that he has exposed corruption in the federal government.

Perhaps most importantly for Trump, the voters do not see him as part of the political system—they do not consider Trump a “politician,” despite the fact he’s been in office for nearly three years now—and they still consider him an outsider or “renegade,” in the words of one Pittsburgh-area independent.

What’s more, America First’s focus groups also uncovered a lot of sentiment among independents about several of the top Democrat presidential candidates. Regarding former Vice President Joe Biden, top terms focus group participants used were “too old,” “forgetful,” and “Obama’s second hand.” They also described Biden as a “creep” who makes unwanted advances against young women and as “the swamp,” a sign that America First Policies officials believe demonstrates that attacks on Biden’s son Hunter Biden are breaking through to voters nationwide.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is described as a “socialist,” “outspoken,” a “liar,” and “academic.” Warren’s history of falsely claiming to be a Native American has broken through, as several of the independent voters in the focus groups across the country called Warren “Pocahontas.”
Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, meanwhile, was described as “too old,” “angry,” “crazy,” and “socialist.”
Another interesting finding from these focus groups is that these independent voters do not see much of a difference between any of the Democrats, even when there are actual policy-specific nuances separating them. For instance, when former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) called for door-to-door gun confiscation and mandatory government-controlled buybacks of Americans’ firearms before he later dropped out of the presidential race, one woman in a North Carolina focus group expressed outrage at the whole Democrat field over it. She said:

“I watched ten minutes of the Democratic debate and when I heard somebody talking about taking your guns I thought ‘you just fucking killed yourself.’ What was he talking about when he was saying he was going to take our guns?”

Mayor Pete trying to make inroads with zero black supporters. Good luck with dat.


“Buttigieg has struggled to make inroads, persistently registering in the single digits. The South Bend, Indiana, mayor polls close to zero nationally with African Americans, faring no better with that vote in South Carolina, a liability that he knows will thwart his nomination if he can’t turn it around....

Aside from not supporting Buttigieg, many of the South Carolinian signees share another quality, as well: They’re not black.

Told that roughly half of the list of supporters were white voters, Cordero laughed. “Really?”

Meanwhile, of those 297, seven are repeated; one of them appears three times. According to a review of public record databases and social media sites, multiple names on the list appear to be from people who do not live in South Carolina. One person seems to not live in the United States at all but in São Paulo, Brazil.

Two others may be badly misspelled at best, as they don’t appear anywhere online or in voter databases. The rest, which add up to 125, can’t be found in the voter file.“

You can thank team 0 and team Clinton for this while the Prez is giving the jihadis the worst time they have seen, unremitting air strikes from Syria to the boarder of Pakistan and a bit further if needed.

Those mutha mullahs have had the shia crescent for years before the last election. -

Most of the leaked Iranian documents appeared to concern activities during the Obama administration, however. The real intelligence disaster from the U.S. perspective began in 2011, when Iran moved in and scooped up intelligence assets abandoned by departing American forces.

One of these former U.S. assets evidently gave up a massive trove of information to his new Iranian benefactors that exposed much of the remaining American intelligence network in Iraq, including the names of other Iraqis who worked for the CIA. That gave Iran a rich target list of U.S. contacts it could either recruit or eliminate. Several high-ranking Shiite Iraqi military intelligence officers began working for Iran in 2014, essentially handing Iran the keys to the Iraqi Army’s entire intelligence operation — and some very high-end American tech they had been provided.

Iraq’s political structure was apparently as thoroughly penetrated by Iranian intelligence as its military. One of the leaked documents described a secret meeting early in Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s term where Iranian agents ran down a list of Iraqi officials and confidently pronounced most of them Iran-friendly or actively in collusion with Tehran, even though Abadi himself was sneeringly dismissed as “the Americans’ candidate.”

Iran had no trouble securing access to Iraqi airspace to facilitate operations in Syria even though the Obama administration begged the Abadi government not to allow it. Abadi himself is said to have developed a “confidential relationship with Iranian intelligence.” Everything U.S. representatives said to the Iraqis was quickly passed along to the MOIS. Iran’s Shiite militia proxies in Iraq became increasingly powerful and brutal during the battle against the Islamic State.

The latter Iranian triumph looks to have become its downfall, as even Shiite Iraqis resent the Iran-backed militia groups, while the Sunnis are terrified of them. Soleimani, who is enormously popular in Iran, used social media to tout his deep involvement in Iraq, but the Iraqis only grew more resentful of him. They also noticed that many Iranian operations in Iraq ended with the Iranians throwing around a few bribes and scooping up lucrative contracts, plundering Iraq.

One MOIS report fretted that Sunni Iraqis have taken to daydreaming about America and Israel riding to their rescue against Soleimani and his militia groups. Another worried that Iran could lose some of its valuable Iraqi intelligence assets if they believe Iran’s regional influence is weakening, or if Iran can longer pay them handsomely enough.

Most Iranian officials and Iraqi individuals named in the leaked cables either refused requests for comment or denied saying and doing what the cables attributed to them. Abadi, in particular, vehemently denied meeting in secret with Iranian intelligence operatives.

The Associated Press suggested on Monday that “no comment” might not be a viable option for Iraqi officials for much longer, because English-speaking volunteers are busy translating the New York Times/Intercept article for protesters to read.

“Most of us were not surprised by what we read in the report. It was just a confirmation of our case and the information we already had,” opined one protester, who requested anonymity because he feared reprisal from Iran or its Iraqi proxies.

“Iran is intervening in our country, but we, the people, are the decision-makers,” another protester told AFP.

“The spark that started in Iraq has reached Iran,” she added.

Tru Dat! -

House Intelligence Committee Member Chris Stewart, R-Utah, said Democrats have been "crying wolf" on alleged wrongdoing on the part of President Trump for a long time and "you can only cry wolf so many times, and eventually people will quit listening."

Stewart told "The Ingraham Angle" on Monday that the cratering television ratings for the impeachment inquiry hearings help prove the point.

Insight: “Irreverence is the champion of liberty and its only sure defense.” —Mark Twain (1835-1910)

Nailed it: “Some days politics can be dreadfully boring, and other days it has all the sensory overload of crowd-surfing during a rave in a minefield under a fireworks display.” —Jim Geraghty

For the record: “I don’t know all the facts about today’s Chick fil A news, but a relevant principle applies to all institutions in similar situations: Half measures to protect one’s interests will never meet with approval unless there’s total capitulation to the demands of the sexual revolution.” —Andrew T. Walker

True story: “Eric Swalwell is generating more buzz for potentially farting on cable tv than he ever did running for President.” —James Hasson

Faux virtue: “House Democrats and the media should spare us the sanctimonious narrative that every impeachment witness is a selfless hero whose credibility is above questioning and whose every statement must be taken at face value. After all, we need look no further than the appalling display of other ‘deep state’ bureaucrats connected to the Russia collusion hoax — former FBI director James Comey, his deputy Andrew McCabe, and the sneering former FBI agent Pete Strzok — for examples of craven, dishonest ‘deep state’ bureaucrats who despise Trump and will seemingly do anything to undermine his administration.” —John Daniel Davidson

Old man yells at cloud: “Donald Trump knows that I’ll beat him. That’s why he’s spending millions of dollars on air, lying about me and risking his very, very presidency by trying to bribe foreign leaders to say things about me that aren’t true.” —Joe Biden

Braying jenny: “I’d like to impeach the bastard right now.” —Rep. Dina Titus

And last… “The worst part of Chick-fil-A caving to the rage mob [is that] it empowers & emboldens the rage mob. Now the rage mob knows their bullying works, so they’ll bully other Christian business owners. And those not as powerful as Chick-fil-A could be forced to close.” —Liz Wheeler

,,,Meth, We're on it!!! says the Republican



Wait, so the Woke People bullied Chick-fil-A to quit giving money to the Salvation Army?

lol. You know, they really are crazy. That Blue Mob really is something, thank God the area has so many of them to look out for our precious bodily fluids.

A bit of metaphor mixing from James Howard Kunstler (who, by the way, is the furthest thing from a Republican).

"And anyone who takes in the nauseating spectacle of Congressman Adam Schiff’s House Intel Committee impeachment process can see that shredding of norms on full shameless display, where the attempted defense of nakedly absurd charges against the president is thwarted by a chicane of deceitful rules outside any concept of due process, concocted by Mr. Schiff and his task force of Lawfare hustlers — no right to call witnesses, no right of cross-examination, and no right to argue that set of rules cribbed from the Stalin show trials by way of the Spanish Inquisition."

But hey, you know, politics have no relation to morals (from some Italian guy).

Well, is it ok to give to the Salvation Army bell ringers this year....or would that trigger the confused?

“This is what Chick-fil-A will now learn the hard way, as have so many before them: You cannot appease the mob. It doesn’t matter if you give them what they want. It doesn’t matter if you fall to your feet, confess your sins, and beg forgiveness. All your self-abdication will do is empower and encourage your critics. They will not forgive you (not that Chick-fil-A needed forgiveness). This is an age of scalp-claiming, not mercy. Now they will happily take yours, celebrate the victory, and move on to the next target. You aren’t their friend now, or their ally. You’re just a trophy on their shelf. Congratulations, Chick-fil-A.

Oh well. Popeyes is better anyway.“


OMG! There is a Chick-fil-A food truck over there! I don’t feel safe.

About 100 students at an Oregon high school walked out of classes last week in support of the LGBTQ community after they said a series of events made students feel unsafe, including the presence of a Chick-fil-A food truck at home football games.


Perhaps in response to my 744am posting, Pelline posted a link to a nice story about LMU, the university I attended for a Masters that was but a mile from my office at Hughes Aircraft:
“We welcome the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to campus, continuing LMU’s long-standing tradition of rigorous inquiry, debate, and civic engagement,” LMU President Dr. Timothy Law Snyder said in a statement. “As a nationally renowned, highly ranked university in the Jesuit and Marymount traditions, LMU is a destination for world leaders whose ideas confront humankind’s most challenging issues. Together, we seek to create the world we want to live in.”

I do hope climate change occupies center stage in the candidate's "debate"... it's been in the shadows. Why?

When it right down to it, the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings are the defining moment for me that says it all. I still can’t get the screeching out of my mind. It is still too painful to even think about what happened, how they went after a good decent man to destroy him and his family on ‘made for TV’. I view everything now through the Kavanaugh lens. The scorched earth take no prisoners tactics to achieve power and redefine what being an American means. The students on campus drowning out opposing views is tolerable, but getting people fired and destroyed for life for liking a comment on FB crosses the line of semblance of democracy. I view everything now through the Kavanaugh hearings....from the RussianHoax, to the 4th of July on the mall, to blaming the Covington school boys for enduring the barrage of insults and racist/homophobic slurs as if it was all their fault to the Shiff circus going on now. It’s all the Kavanaugh hearings all over again.

Gregory’s 7:44 am is the product of the fruit of the poison tree.

Just asking the target of a protest for a comment is NOT OK.

“The Crimson, Harvard’s student newspaper, covered a student rally in September that called for abolishing ICE. Following the rally in Harvard Yard, Crimson reporters reached out to ICE for a response.

Campus groups are now boycotting The Crimson and not speaking to the student newspaper.....

ICE did not respond to the request for comment from The Crimson in September, and declined to comment to the Herald.“


Lol. No comment, but just asking for a comment is a threat to the community! That is the future and the present of the state of ‘activist’ journalism in the West.

Nailed it. The coverup continues....

Bill Tozer

Under the category of ‘So What’.........Mayor Peter released stock photos of black people on his outreach to blacks; the Douglas Plan. Big deal. All campaigns use stock photos. Standard practice.

“And now, Buttigieg may face a new problem as he tries to court black voters. The portion of his website that touts his plan to help black America used stock photos of blacks, including a woman from Kenya.

Some of Buttigieg’s lesser rivals attacked him for his use of stock photos. Kamala Harris, who has been overtaken by Mayor Pete and others, said that when it comes to these photos “words fail me.” They have failed her frequently in the past two months.

What will the effect of this pseudo-scandal be on Buttigieg’s standing with black voters? Little or none, I predict, and not just because he can’t go any lower than zero with this group in the polls”

Bill Tozer

Just another day on campus. Hostile learning environment. Now they went after Art Laffer. Art Laffer?? Trump is killing black people!

“When security approached a protester ranting on the megaphone about how the Trump administration was killing people of color, the mob swarmed in to block the officer from escorting the ranter out of the room. Then, in Orwellian fashion, the screaming mob chanted “free speech” — implying that their free speech rights were the ones being blocked.“......

Due to security concerns, Dr. Laffer was promptly removed from the room. Moreover, police arrested two of the protesters.

It was just less than a week ago that the leftist mob had targeted conservative students for harassment and intimidation and the university refused to take disciplinary action.

By Monday — hours before the shutdown of the YAF event — the Binghamton administration said that it would not investigate the mob incident, nor would it discipline the students involved in the harassment against conservative students.“

Japan’s powerful lower house of parliament approved Tuesday a trade pact with the U.S. that opens the country’s markets to American beef and other agricultural products, as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe seeks to stave off new tariffs on carmakers.

With the U.S. pressing for the agreement to come into force Jan. 1, the measure now heads to the less powerful upper house, where it’s expected to win passage before the current session ends on Dec. 9, thanks to Abe’s coalition majority.

I have to think our F-35's are actively sharing real time data with the unsinkable Jewish aircraft carriers F-35's and they are tweeting about its results! In your face you mutha mullahs. The Prez has taken the handcuffs off our best theatre assets and our Air Force is showing what it can do when it wants but we now have high cover from the Med to Mecca and east to the Pakistani tribal areas. -

In a series of tweets on Tuesday night the IDF wrote, “We just carried out wide-scale strikes of Iranian Quds Force & Syrian Armed Forces targets in Syria in response to the rockets fired at Israel by an Iranian force in Syria last night.”

The targets reportedly included missile launchers, warehouses that stored weapons, command centers and bases.

“During our strike of Iranian & Syrian terror targets, a Syrian air defense missile was fired despite clear warnings to refrain from such fire. As a result, a number of Syrian aerial defense batteries were destroyed,” another IDF tweet said.

Four rockets launched from Syria into Israel early Tuesday were intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system, the Israeli Defense Force said in a statement.

“We hold the Syrian regime responsible for the actions that take place in Syrian territory and warn them against allowing further attacks against Israel,” The IDF tweeted Wednesday. “We will continue operating firmly and for as long as necessary against the Iranian entrenchment in Syria.”

Insight: “There is no such entity as ‘the public’ — since the public is merely a number of individuals — the idea that ‘the public interest’ supersedes private interests and rights can have but one meaning: that the interests and rights of some individuals take precedence over the interests and rights of others.” —Ayn Rand (1905-1982)

Do tell -

Responding to questions from Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX), Hale agreed that President Trump had a general skepticism of foreign aid and wanted to overhaul the way it was handled, as part of his “America First” policy.

He also agreed that delays on aid are not uncommon, and confirmed his earlier testimony that aid to Lebanon had been held up by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in the White House, as had aid to Pakistan and to the “Northern Triangle” countries (El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras) until it was later released. The Lebanon hold remains in effect.

The Pakistan aid was held up because of “unhappiness over the policies and behavior of the Pakistani government toward certain proxy groups that were involved in conflicts with the United States,” Hale said.

Hale also confirmed that when aid was withheld from Lebanon, there was no reason given — just as with Ukraine. Asked whether that was “not uncommon,” Hale said it is “not the normal way that we function,” but that “[I]t does happen.”

Ratcliffe concluded: “The assertion has been made that President Trump’s Ukraine policy changed when there was a pause in the aid, or the aid was withheld. Is that an accurate statement?”
Hale said: “That was not the way I understood things to be happening at the time — we were not given an explanation.”

He confirmed that U.S. policy toward Ukraine was “very robust” because of Trump’s decision to provide lethal weapons to Ukraine.

Fifty-seven percent of Americans approved of President Trump’s handling of the economy, up from 53 percent in August and 50 percent in May. Approval is dramatically improved from the early days of his presidency, when just 48 percent said they approved.

As in many other areas, Trump enjoys massive approval by members of his own party on economic issues. Ninety-three percent of Republicans say they approve of Trump’s handling of the economy, versus just 18 percent of Democrats. But Trump wins strong marks from independents, 60 percent of whom say they approve of his handling of the economy.

In these pages his fellow ideologues have demonstrated that they don't, as has he above. What is there about such definitions that totally confound leftwingers?

Todd Juvinall

Hey GeorgeR please send me your email. I lost it on my email program.

BoobieC doesn't know that a NAZI is his ilk not ours. We are all about less control by government and he is all about more. That is why I call him a moron.

"Does frequent commenter Robert Cross have even a clue as to what 'Nazi' means??"

Oh, I doubt it. It's kind of a complicated belief system added to over time by people who may have been evil, but not stupid.

I'm attracted to my idea that when you show up merely to insult people you hate, you think up the absolutely worstest epithet you can. How you can equate 'Nazi' to dialing down EPA rules, shutting down some overseas military adventures, better control of a national border, and being indifferent to the plight of the underappreciated crazy men in dresses is something of a mystery to me.

I'd say that there's a few common backgrounds among the splittle-flying partisan folks. A lack of subject knowledge, a lack of background in managing people (employees, large companies, even children), a lack of knowledge in history aside from a cursory overview. It's one thing to have an opinion, quite another to sound like an insane person. Truth is, everyone can spot a crazy, which makes me wonder how subtlely intertwined their DNA and general physical attributes are with their thinking.

Fredo is as Fredo does -

“Let's just play with that for a second. Mom can you hear me?” Cuomo asked, without receiving a response from his mother.

“I’m with Dana Bash… can you just say hello? Mom? She probably can’t hear me,” Cuomo said as he struggled to hear whether or not his mother could hear him.
Cuomo then put the device on speakerphone.

“Mom, can you hear me?” he asked again.

“I hear you, when you talk to me I hear you,” his mother responded.

The “Cuomo Prime Time” namesake then turned off speakerphone and could no longer hear him mother — just as Trump explained is typically the case.

A frustrated Cuomo then hung up the phone and crtics quickly lampooned the moment.

“CNN’s Cuomo trying to prove you can hear a conversation on another person’s cell phone (while on speaker, mind you) is the most ill-advised thing we’ve witnessed on live TV since Marcia Clark had OJ try the gloves on,” The Hill media reporter Joe Concha wrote.

I see the crickets on Netanyahu being indicted and instead the focus becomes some petty cherry picked issue of word usage. typical of ruminator rhetoric.

Nazi definition: a person with extreme racist or authoritarian points of view

Todd Juvinall

Boobic moron, not here bub. You libs are the spell checkers. Mr. Rebane is way smarter than you and knows a lot of large descriptive words. You don't. But that is why morons get bested here.

Don Bessee

We told you it was unconstitutional and the justices agreed -

Whatever authority the Legislature may have in defining how presidential primaries are to occur in this state, the challenged sections of the act exceed such authority and are unenforceable,” California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye wrote in the opinion.



George Rebane

robertc 1257pm - then what do you call a person who believes in national socialism?

Don Bessee

You are wasting you time @158.


Robert Cross

George 12:57 -- that depends on how one defines national socialism. If the example is the former Soviet Union or Maoist China I would call it 'socialism or communism" then those believers would be socialists or communists. If you are talking about countries like Sweden or Denmark that are capitalistic democracies with a high level of socially oriented spending then one would have to come up with something different. I don't really know if there is a word or two that would accurately describe situations like that.

George Rebane

RobertC 214pm - How about making it simple and accept the Nazi definition of national socialism, instead of the multiple new ones fabricated today by our progressive thought controllers?

Don Bessee

@214 sounds a lot like what the definition of is is and tottaly ducks the real Nazis as in national socialist. But that's all you can expect from them, duck the point and blather to deflect the original question.

Thanks schiff for brains and lets not forget botox Nancy for driving the independents our way! -

“Support for impeachment has flipped since October from 48% support with 44% opposing to now 45% opposed and 43% in support,” Emerson found. The greatest shift in opinion occurred among independent voters, who now oppose impeachment 49 percent to 34 percent. Last month, independents supported impeachment 48 percent to 39 percent.



Don Bessee

They are not going to listen but its too true -

"One of the things that I pride myself in is that we can't get too sucked into the beltway and the media circles," McCain began. "What I saw last night on the debate stage is not going to be good enough to beat him. You all are very convinced, 'he's crazy, he's whatever.' He's always been crazy like a fox. I knew he was going to win in 2016 and I'm telling you right now, if you think this impeachment hearing and everything with Sondland and the 30,000 cast of characters -- which, by the way, every day is ticking lower and lower on ratings. If you think this is enough to have it locked and loaded, you are naive!"




Well LIBS are the "new" national socialists... How bout THOSE apples Bobby?


All those Lefties running for Prez sure fit the definition of "national socialist". Is that not what they are trying to cram up our collective buttholes? Tell us how that ain't so Cross Bobby....

Robert Cross

George 2:22--enlighten me. I guess I don't know the Nazi definition of national socialism. As to "new ones fabricated today by our progressive thought controllers" I will dismiss that as simply an attempt to define the issue using their own terms for the sake of winning an argument versus having a discussion, made by someone subject to the conservative thought controllers. I am sure Walt and Todd are impressed.

Don Bessee

I am sure the farmers and American union workers in swing states will be just thrilled to hear botox nancy's real priorities. -




Sorry Bobby,, Repubs encourage one to think for themself.
Nice try. Try it sometime.
Need some proof? Take the LIB inquisition. No matter how many times the witnesses say "we have no proof whatsoever against Trump",, your side(the national socialists) continue to push Trump" guilt of some imagined crime.
You were asked yesterday to provide any proof. And what did you produce?? Nuttn'......
Now is that thinking for yourself? Or are sticking with the Proggy line?... Because they said so......

Paul Emery


I'm sure you would consider Eisenhower and Nixon Socialists. Nixon proposed the guaranteed annual income-which the Dems defeated and Eisenhower was an outright commie in your eyes:

"What would today’s hysterical Republicans say about the “socialist” presidency of Dwight Eisenhower? Most likely they would call him “Red Ike.” After all, during Eisenhower’s two terms between 1953 and 1960, the wealthy paid a top tax rate of 91 percent on incomes over the equivalent of $1.7 million for an individual and $3.4 million for a couple.

That crafty pinko Eisenhower also presided over government-subsidized mortgages that helped millions of Americans purchase their first home and attend college for free. He presided over the construction of public housing and state-owned infrastructure (like highways)."


Don Bessee

Clue to the pony tail of ignorance, the discussion is about national socialism aka Nazi's.



Speaking of Nazis,, They ain't getting Trump's tax returns.

Nope CA. can't pass some bullshit law and think they are above FED law.

George Rebane

RobertC 332pm - Ah yes, that I believe. Let's do it this way so you can feel some sense of accomplishment. Why don't you take a day or two and see if you can research the Nazis' definition of 'Nazi'. Since it was one of the most significant ideologies of the 20th century, it shouldn't be too hard. But do let me know if you run into a brick wall. And it's even more revealing that you of Left don't consider that you have fabricated new definitions in the last 20-30 years to impose your version of Orwellian Newspeak. Count the words today that saying them would get you fired or worse. It sure as hell wasn't the Right who imposed politically correct semantics on the nation.

PaulE 350pm - Did you come up with all that yourself?


Paul Emery: "I'm sure you would consider Eisenhower and Nixon Socialists."

Not particularly, at least by modern standards. To the extent that the President runs the budget, and that 'socialism' can be approximated by the share of the economy run by the government, I can see this:


Of course, if you include the parts of the economy actually run by the government via regulation and the like, you'd probably see yet more of an increase. Trump is far more of a socialist than Truman, mostly because the baseline has changed.

Why don't you go bother the adults some other time.


RCross: "George 2:22--enlighten me. I guess I don't know the Nazi definition of national socialism."

I would just suggest dropping the word from your lexicon. 'Nazi' and 'national socialism' have little to do with the world out of their own context.

Bill Tozer

Don’t forget about the Democratic Socialists. Hint: Russia, 1917. Once in power, Lenin crushed them and both parties rejected Marx and Engles in practice.

Paul Emery

So George were Nixon and Eisenhower "Socialists" in your view? I'm interested if you apply your definition to Republicans.


Oh jeez.


Paul Emery

Here's the bottom line confession as expressed by Trumps White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney

"Jon Karl, White House correspondent for ABC News, asked Mulvaney if he understood that what he described “is a quid pro quo.”

“It is funding will not flow unless the investigation into the Democratic server happened,” said Karl.

“We do that all the time with foreign policy,” said Mulvaney. “Get over it. There’s going to be political influence in foreign policy… That is going to happen. Elections have consequences.”

Mulvaney has refused to testify under oath."


What does "We do that all the time" mean to you?


Don Bessee

The po' ol' fakenewsman needs to pay attention to the new! BREAKING!

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo requesting documentation on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s work in Ukraine on Thursday, as the week’s public impeachment inquiry hearings in the House drew to a close.

In his two-page letter, Graham asked for a number of call transcripts, notes and communications involving Joe Biden, former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, former Secretary of State John Kerry, a former Ukrainian prosecutor and people connected to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.






Bill Tozer

Ah, more is revealed in the Michael Flynn case.

“That the government’s FARA case against Flynn’s business partner proved bogus should also trouble Sullivan because, according to Powell’s earlier court filings, the special counsel’s office had informed Flynn’s “counsel in the summer of 2017 that it was going to indict the FARA case then, had obtained authorization to target Michael Flynn, Jr.—who had a newborn—and had seized all his electronic devices.”

The threat was clear: Plead guilty and cooperate or we will prosecute your son. And given Judge Trenga’s conclusion in the Rafiekian case that there was no evidence of a FARA crime, there is an added postscript: We will prosecute your son on bogus charges.

The threat also wasn’t a one off: After Powell took over representation of Flynn, federal prosecutors attempted to force Flynn to testify at Rafiekian’s trial that Flynn had knowingly made false statements in the FARA filings—something Flynn denies. When Flynn refused to lie, federal prosecutors abruptly added Michael Flynn Jr. to the witness list for the Rafiekian trial, but then never called him to testify.

The government, according to Powell, also had an FBI agent contact Flynn Jr. directly, even though the younger Flynn was represented by counsel. These maneuvers corroborate the prosecutors’ earlier use of Flynn Jr. as a pawn to pressure his father to plead guilty.

That additional time has indeed clarified many things and exposed a well-constructed plot to ambush Flynn, quiz him on a telephone call the inquisitors already knew the content of, and later make material changes to the 302 interview summaries to establish a basis for criminal charges. Judge Sullivan will be considering those new revelations, and not merely Flynn’s previous statements, when he rules on the currently pending motions and those to come.“

PaulE 509pm - Why not take it at face value. I recall debates we had in the 60s and 70s that we were giving away a lot of money and arms, and getting nothing or not enough in return. Presidents and congress critters then promised to do better. But such international horse trading has always been the case forever. I'm surprised that the today's Dems pretend to be so cynically naive as not to know that. How did you take Mulvaney's statement?

Bill Tozer

Ah, the National Interstate and Defense Highways Act.

When President Dwight D. Eisenhower took office in January 1953, however, the states had only completed 6,500 miles of the system improvements. Eisenhower had first realized the value of good highways in 1919, when he participated in the U.S. Army's first transcontinental motor convoy from Washington, DC, to San Francisco. Again, during World War II, Eisenhower saw the German advantage that resulted from their autobahn highway network, and he also noted the enhanced mobility of the Allies, on those same highways, when they fought their way into Germany. These experiences significantly shaped Eisenhower's views on highways and their role in national defense. During his State of the Union Address on January 7, 1954, Eisenhower made it clear that he was ready to turn his attention to the nation's highway problems. He considered it important to "protect the vital interest of every citizen in a safe and adequate highway system."

Paul Emery

I take it at face value George. Mulvaney admitted it was a quid pro quo. Jon Karl stated to Mulvaney “It is funding will not flow unless the investigation into the Democratic server happened,” Mulvaney Replied " “We do that all the time with foreign policy,Get over it."

Don Bessee

WOW what an astonishingly ignorant statement @ 708. Didn't even listen to the schiff for brains storm. 5 other countries have had theirs held up in the same way with Lebanon still frozen, what a maroon!


Take a look at the picture, that's a look we have seen hereabouts for years, especially at the fair in the last few year. If she were yelling with the spit flying she would look just like Linda Campbell! LOL -




Yet no evidence Emery. And he got ripped apart like an onion.
"opinion" is not evidence. Do you understand that concept?

Don Bessee

Those mutha mullahs are feeling the heat in more ways than one and are feeling the bite of real sanctions. They should have banked 0's bucks instead of spreading war across the region. Looks like their Karma bank is overdrawn. -

Ali Saeedi, a hardline Iranian cleric close to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, admitted on Wednesday that top officials were surprised by the intensity of protests against the recent gasoline tax hike.

Radio Farda reported Saeedi said Ayatollah Khamenei “has accepted full responsibility for the consequences of the plan to increase the price of gasoline in Iran,” but then he proceeded to blame everything on the secular wing of Iran’s government headed by President Hassan Rouhani
