Warren Rejects Peace Pipe Offered By Sanders

But Warren slapped the peace pipe out of his hands and crossed her arms, a sign of rejection in her culture. "No peace pipe. You have angered the Great Spirit. Leave at once, paleface." A crestfallen Sanders backed away slowly to go ask his grandkids about eBay's return policy.

"Trump is mot accused of anything that of breaks the law."

Trump is mot accused of anything that of breaks the law

Posted by: Paul Emery | 16 January 2020 at 07:03 PM

Ignored my advice oh great pony tail of ignorance didja?


George Rebane

PaulE 703pm - Trump probably broke the law to the same extent that did Obama and many other presidents before that. None of them rose to the level of impeachability, save Clinton and Nixon, I suppose. And even Clinton was not convicted, so the indictment didn't stand.

Now I have not said anything new in the above statement; it's a repetition of my position on Trump for some months now; most certainly since the Dems impeached him last December. I know you like laps around the barn, but for me this is beyond boring. Do you have anything new to add? We know you and yours believe Trump is guilty and should be removed from office. Can we just leave it there until something really new turns up?

Comrade Bernie has dissent in the red guard! That and the wokesters makes this socialist dem clown car hit big time potholes!

Talk about tribalism.

Left-wing populist Michael Tracey says it is a “major political liability” for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to be “percieved” of as endorsing an open borders agenda in the 2020 election.

During an interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight, Tracey — a supporter of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) — said Sanders should stick to his 2015 rhetoric in which he explicitly opposed hemispheric open borders as an effort by the billionaire class to drive down American wages.

The Cult Of Pelosi Is A Deadly Thing ForDemocrat Future

"The cult of Pelosi isn’t just a “hot take” or a “be smart,” it’s a mindset through which Washington’s media elites interpret the world. It’s false, and the harsh light of reality easily shows as much. But reality is powerless to stop “the conventional wisdom” of the Beltway.

Overconfidence is a slow-working, terrible thing. It may lead its wearers to see an “invincible” “grand master” when there is none. And more, to see victory ahead when there is only defeat"


Scott O

BT 8:57 - The 'cult of Pelosi' is just a sub-set of the major group.
It's the 'we're gonna git 'em' lefties. They're going to get Big Tech, Wall Street, Trump, the NRA, Big Oil and anybody else they can think of whenever it's convenient.
The actual recipients of their wrath usually end up being the middle class (especially the conservative middle class).
The Lefts' idea of governance is always a negative. They WILL take your money, your rights, and your freedoms.
You have only to look at the major cities of this nation (and increasingly, California) to see what the Left has in store for you.


GeorgeR: "Trump probably broke the law to the same extent that did Obama and many other presidents before that. None of them rose to the level of impeachability, save Clinton and Nixon, I suppose. And even Clinton was not convicted, so the indictment didn't stand."

It isn't like Nixon was even impeached. Looking back, I'd say that his resignation was a net negative for the country. Obviously, no successful office removals yet for anyone. Impeachment has been purely a political process thus far. Thing is, it probably wasn't such a serious matter back in the pre-FDR (or pre-Lincoln by some reckonings) of a non-imperial Presidency.

The Emerianites could always go for the Rep. Jamie Raskin 25th Amendment concept, removal via a committee who determines mental incapacity. I mean, anyone who is interested in border security, avoids invasions of Syria, renegotiates trade treaties must be crazy, right?

Although a long Senate trial would be fun, I'm in favor of the shortest version possible. It gives all of this the attention it really deserves and lets the absolutely ridiculous Democratic candidates go back to bleating on stage. There's even the possibility of a victory. A President Bernie would be a hilarious thing to watch right before the whole she-bang went tango uniform. We might even get Obama on the new three dollar bill.

Canadian 'neo-Nazi' soldier, 27 who went AWOL to recruit for white-supremacist group ‘The Base’ is arrested by the FBI along with two other suspected members ahead of major Virginia pro-gun rally next week
Patrik Jordan Mathews, a former Canadian military reservist, was kicked out of the military after his ties to neo-Nazi hate group The Base were revealed
Authorities in Canada began searching for Mathews this past summer, when the trained explosives expert and combat engineer went missing in Manitoba
Two Americans - Brian Mark Lemley Jr, 33; and William Garfield Bilbrough, 19; were also charged by federal authorities
After Mathews illegally crossed the border into the US, Lemley and Bilbrough picked him up in Michigan and drove him to Maryland, according to the feds
The three men allegedly constructed an assault rifle and bought thousands of rounds of ammunition
Lemley previously served as a Cavalry Scout in the United States Army, according to the federal government
The three men were allegedly planning to attend a Monday pro-gun rally in Virginia, which is expected to draw thousands

Jabba the jihadi -

A massive 560-pound jihadi dubbed “Jabba the Jihadi” has been nicked by Iraqi forces, sparking a stream of hilarious Internet memes.
Hate preacher Abu Abdul Bari had to be loaded onto a flatbed truck after he was nabbed in his Mosul bolthole by Iraqi security forces.

Cops said he was an ISIS member who issued fatwas leading to the execution of a number of scholars and clerics, as well as the bombing of a mosque.

Macer Gifford, a Brit who fought against the death cult in Syria, tweeted: “I’m delighted to say that the Islamic State’s very own Jabba the Hutt has been captured in Mosul.

“Responsible for the execution of men, women, and children. This animal raped and murdered.”
Referring to the obvious problems the authorities might face carrying out the country’s death penalty, he added: “Good luck hanging him Iraq.”

The state of California sued the Trump administration Friday for approving new oil-drilling leases on federal land in eight Central California counties and the Sierra foothills. It’s the the latest step in an ongoing dispute between the federal government and the nation’s most populous state.

It’s the the latest step in an ongoing dispute between the federal government and the nation’s most populous state."

Of course, it's the California way. It's always best to push environmental issues onto someone else. Nuclear reactors in Arizona, valueluess plastic to China, generally hazardous waste all over Asia. Remember the proposed landfill in Winnemuca? I'd say that the Blue Mob coastal California wants to make the rest of the world it's dump.

In an ideal California world, gasoline is made in Texas and Louisiana and shipped to LA via unicorn.

I guess it's not so different than being pro vibrant diversity and then living in Nevada County. It's always best to make a problem someone else's problem.

Paul Emery

I saw Trump on Fox recently bragging about the extent of his support among African Americans. Another Trump lie. In reality there's not much to brag about. Here's a couple of examples:

"According to a Washington Post/Ipsos poll conducted earlier this month, most African-Americans have a very low opinion of Obama’s successor in the White House: the poll found that eight out of ten blacks in the U.S. believe that President Trump is a racist.

Nine out of ten African-Americans, according to the poll, disapprove of Trump’s job performance — and 65% of African-Americans believe it is a “bad time” to be black in the United States."


And this:

"An overwhelming majority of black voters — 85 percent — said in a new Hill-HarrisX poll that they would choose any Democratic presidential candidate over President Trump.

The survey, which was released on Monday, found this sentiment to be particularly true among black voters along partisan lines.

Ninety-eight percent of black voters who identify as Democrat, and 72 percent of those who identify as independent said they would back whoever ultimately becomes the Democratic nominee over Trump. Just 12 percent of black voters who identify as Republican said the same.

Black voters are considered a key voting bloc with the Democratic Party, particularly in states like South Carolina where they make up a significant proportion of the electorate."



Paul Emery: "I saw Trump on Fox recently "

Yeah, sure.

Bill Tozer

Man, 12% of the black vote would be a big improvement. Dems cannot afford to ANY of the black vote, even 8%. 4% here, 9% there, and it all adds up. On the upswing. Who knows. 13-14% would made a big dent in the Clown Car, for sure.

Things are looking up and better than this time in 2016. Plus, the Bernie Bros can always be count on to not show up for a Biden.


Ya Emery, LIBS don't like Blacks and minorities with gainful employment. They tend to vote to keep it that way.

Daily Quotes:

Observations: “I’m so old I remember when the Democrats were shrieking for justice for the people of Iran, right up until the people of Iran began agreeing with Trump about their government’s corruption. Man, those were the days.” —Candace Owens

Upright: “One hundred United States Senators [have been] sworn in to serve in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Four of those senators must recuse themselves for their unparalleled political interest in seeing this president removed from office.” —Rep. Marsha Blackburn

Yep: “Nothing says seriousness and sobriety like handing out souvenirs. As though this were a happy bill-signing instead of the gravest process in our Constitution.” —Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

Braying jenny: “I don’t know who’s the puppet, Trump or the attorney general.” —House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

Innocent until proven guilty? “It’s not a question of saying what proof. It says what allegations have been made and that has to be subjected to scrutiny as to how we go forward, but it should not be ignored, and the context of other events that have happened that would substantiate some of that.” —Nancy Pelosi

Grand delusions: “I would argue that not only is this an impeachment trial but that the very integrity of the United States Senate is on trial. What is before us are charges that are arguably the most serious charges that have ever been leveled against a president of the United States.” —Sen. Kamala Harris

Well-timed political theater: “The GAO found that it was illegal — illegal — for President Trump to withhold military assistance from Ukraine to pressure them to interfere in the 2020 elections. Both the revelations about Mr. Parnas and the GAO opinion strengthen our push for witnesses and documents in the trial. The GAO opinion especially makes clear that the documents we requested in our letter to Leader McConnell are even more needed now than when we requested it last month. Because President Trump, simply put, broke the law.” —Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer

Dezinformatsiya: “Adam Schiff, the lead House impeachment manager, the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, was very somber, very serious. He read these two articles of impeachment — abuse of power by the president of the United States, obstruction of Congress by the president of the United States — repeatedly saying that the president of the United States engaged in high crimes and misdemeanors, which the U.S. Constitution says is the reason for a president potentially to be impeached and, if convicted in the Senate, removed from office.” —CNN’s Wolf Blitzer

Almost last: “Fact: Adam Schiff was first elected to congress to replace a Republican House Impeachment Manager. He began his career campaigning against rabid partisanship. Now he is the lead manager in the only partisan impeachment in history.” —Charlie Kirk

And last: “Lavander spelled backwards is Red Navel.” —Tihs Rof Sniarb

Feeling the love -

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow praised President Donald Trump after the team’s visit to the White House Friday, saying that the president showed everyone “so much love.”
Burrow’s comments were reported by Bloomberg reporter Jordan Fabian who tweeted the player’s remarks.

“Joe Burrow on Trump,” Fabian tweeted. “He showed so much love to everyone on our team. I don’t care if you’re a Republican, Democrat, don’t care about politics at all, that was an awesome experience for everybody.”

Yes brother Bill @216 and its the swing states where it matters most, who cares what his CA, NY numbers are. Be afraid all you socialist dems in the clown car be very afraid, all he needs is a couple of points in a handful of states and he bulldozes the sacrificial lamb put up by the socialist dems. Lets not forget the historically low unemployment for Hispanics and Asians too. -

Two polls show President Trump taking a third of the black vote. I doubt that could happen. But if it did, he would be a lock for reelection, given relatively large numbers of black voters in swing states.

Trump just needs the black vote to move toward him a little bit to tip swing states his way. Even Virginia could be in play if this is true.

According to the Washington Examiner:
Kanye West isn’t the only one anymore.
A growing number of polls show that President Trump is gaining the support of black voters above what any Republican president has ever received. Both Emerson Polling and Rasmussen Reports have it at about 34%, a stunning number.

And a new Zogby Analytics survey found that African American support is at the “highest levels of the year,” driven by a strong economy, historically low black unemployment, and Trump’s agenda to support minority small businesses, historically black colleges and universities, and passage of criminal justice reform.

“Not surprisingly, all African Americans do not hate Trump!” pollster Jonathan Zogby said in sharing his data with us.

PaulE 203pm - Given all the historically good news for blacks today - ranging from the economy, jobs, to representation in business, government, media, entertainment, and their ease of getting into colleges, etc, etc. Why do you think that they still dislike Trump who has done so much for them, and why continue to vote for Dems who have delivered them into horrible crime-ridden, drug-infested urban ghettos? Is there something deeper going on here, which makes it impossible for them to see their true benefactors instead of clinging to the party that has been their historic nemesis? What's going on here? Your thoughts?


Damn Joe,, Beto is a Latino?
"In an interview with The Dallas Morning News, Biden was asked if he would consider former Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke or former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro as a running mate.
"And look, I've spoken to each of them and spent some time talking to them. My plea to both of them is that they stay engaged. They are talented, talented people and there are a number of Latinos that have endorsed our former Secretary of Interior — whole lot of people who are going to — I can guarantee you that there’s going to be Latinos in my cabinet, guarantee you there's going to be Latinos in my White House, and both of them are qualified."

Let the school kids eat more meat at breakfast and stop trying to force kale on poor kids who should be able to eat normal like everyone else. Forcing the schools to waste tons of money by forcing a cookie cutter unappealing, flavorless meal and not having options the kids will eat fails both goals of feeding kids with balanced nutrition and not wasting the money. -

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said the changes will let "school nutrition professionals have more flexibility to serve appetizing and healthy meals that appeal to their students’ preferences and subsequently reduce food waste."

The School Nutrition Association (SNA), which represents school nutrition directors and companies that sell food to schools, has long said many of the Obama administration standards are unworkable and overly prescriptive, resulting in higher costs and fewer students participating in lunch programs.

“Schools and school districts continue to tell us that there is still too much food waste and that more common-sense flexibility is needed to provide students nutritious and appetizing meals. We listened and now we’re getting to work,” Perdue said in the statement.

The proposal also aims to make "it easier for schools to offer school lunch entrees for a la carte purchase, thereby reducing food waste."

Speaking of gaffes no one can compete with the weird twisted babblings of our President. Here's some recent ones from this week.

At a political rally held Tuesday night in Milwaukee, Donald Trump performed this role again. Yahoo News reports:

“I’m also approving new dishwashers that give you more water, so you can actually wash and rinse your dishes without having to do it 10 times – four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10,” he said, likely attacking Department of Energy regulations.

“Sinks, toilets and showers, you don’t get any water. They put restrictors on and now they made them permanent.

“You go into the shower — and I have this beautiful head of hair, I need a lot of water — and you turn on the water [and] drip, drip, drip. I call the guy, ‘something wrong with this?’ ‘No, sir, it’s just the restrictor’. So you’re in there five times longer than you’re supposed to be, you use probably more water and it’s a very unpleasant experience. We’re getting rid of the restrictors, you’re going to have full shower flow, full sink.”

During the Milwaukee rally, Trump also repeatedly mimicked flushing a toilet.

Our president also has a special obsession with dishwashers. “Remember the dishwasher?” he asked, as if it were a relic of the past. “You’d press it, boom! There’d be, like, an explosion. Five minutes later you open it up, the steam pours out … Anybody have a new dishwasher? I’m sorry for that.” Trump also told his almost all-white crowd that their “dishes will be beautiful” because of his presidency.



Creepy Uncle Joe: "“He immediately followed that up. “There will be Latinos in my cabinet and I guaranteed there will be Latinos in my White House. And both of them are qualified,” he said referring to O’Rourke and Castro."

Using the new Blue Mob Math, lemme see, 15 primary cabinet members, 13.3% of electorate is Hispanic (per Pew), victimhood correction factor of 1.5

That gives you 2.9925 members. Let's say three members of the primary cabinet. There's a little wiggle room there for someone with a non-Hispanic gggrandfather or so. Easy peasy.

CHICAGO (AP) — Days after President Donald Trump killed an Iranian general and said he was sending more soldiers to the Middle East, about 100 protesters stood on a pedestrian bridge over Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive with an illuminated sign that read “No War in Iran.”

Some 200 people marched in the bitter cold near Boston, while a few dozen people demonstrated on the steps of Los Angeles City Hall and at similarly sized gatherings across the U.S.

Three years after Trump took office and millions of people swarmed to the Women’s March in Washington and companion marches across the country, these typically modest protests are often the most visible sign of today’s Trump resistance.

Meanwhile in the real world - WINNING!!!

When President Trump first imposed tariffs on foreign steel in 2018, steel company owner James Howard didn’t approve.

“As soon as they even talked about a tariff, we were getting price increases, and they were rapidly going up,” Howard told FOX Business in April 2018.

But he’s since changed his tune.

“We've really had a pretty good year,” Howard said Friday in a new interview on FOX Business’ “The Claman Countdown.” “What I was speculating ... all those price increases and stuff, it didn't have a big effect.”

There should be at least a few men there trying to pick up strays, so there's even the possibility of a gentlemen's drum circle I guess.

Given that it's a "global march for women’s rights, climate action, and democratic and social justice", and the central principle of Emerianism, they've probably decided that Trump hates women, the climate, and justice. No word yet on his Nazi tendencies.


File a demurrer (no actionable felony or misdemeanor has been alleged) so, at best a civil case. If that, a cross-complaint for coup attempt is in order and the AG is working on that. Move along, nothing to see here.



IT’S WEIRD HOW “FIX AMERICA’S DEMOCRACY” ALWAYS TURNS OUT TO MEAN “RIG THINGS SO THE LEFT ALWAYS WINS.” Harvard releases radical proposal to fix America’s democracy that divides Washington D.C. into 127 new states, adding enough votes in Congress to rewrite the constitution and eliminate the Electoral College.

fish 7:23 - The issue is that the left needs to have a pure democracy and get rid of our Republic. Their problem is that they need to disarm the citizenry first. If they ever manage to move forward with mob rule too quickly (i.e. - getting rid of the electoral college) before fire arm confiscation, then a breakdown of Constitutional law will lead to mass violence. And they know who wins that one.

Yah gotta love the extremely partisan tone of the thing.

It's probably interesting for Republicans to find themselves *not* the establishment for the first time in some while. Go figure that the country is split between traditional America and some kind of coalition between multinational corporations, schools, iron rice bowl .gov types, and a ragtag army of people who just agree on what they don't like (Emerianism).

It's not such a bad thing in some ways. It seems like the old school Chamber of Commerce guys are having to dust off their arm chairs and, like Conan, really think about what is important in life.

The Harvard Reorganization Plan would make virtual serfs of the Americans who remain in the ‘fly-over states’. They would live and work under federal mandates from a government in which they have no voice. California has already pioneered such a one-party future in which the majority can vote for untold amounts of OPM from fellow Californians, and also from folks living in Ohio and Idaho. The HRP is just the latest of proposals by the indigenous anti-American elites to destroy this fair land.

In the 'pot calling the kettle black' category: a quote from Sean Hannity "Lying, propagandizing, I guess, pays for people. It pays pretty well. So what’s that? These are con artists now, you know they’re just liars, they’re just advancing a political agenda.

Well, it looks like Lizzy Warren won’t be shaking Sean Hannity’s hand, either. Nor Trump’s.


It’s all good.

You need to take a deep breath so you might get something right for once. I keep rooting for you, Little Boo-Boo, but you are making it tough. Sean (and Orange Man Bad) was talking about the journalists that you love.

You might also try to find sources that don’t sing to the choir of unhinged folks tripping on their own dicks.

The climate column today says we turn a gallon of gas 96 pounds) into 20 pounds of CO2. Did anyone read that?

New Hampshire Is Fighting Back to Defend the Electoral College

How would National Popular Vote states pinpoint a national tally with so much information missing?

They couldn’t. Any “national popular vote total” generated would be an invention of the imagination. Such a situation surely would give the Supreme Court even more cause to strike down National Popular Vote’s efforts to effectively eliminate the Electoral College without the constitutionally required approval from a supermajority of states.

James Madison once wrote that state governments should respond to “ambitious encroachments of the federal government” with “plans of resistance.”

National Popular Vote is not an “ambitious encroachment of the federal government,” of course. It is a group of states colluding to bypass constitutional requirements.

But Madison would surely find “plans of resistance” appropriate in this context, too.



Red Square Bill 10:29 -- Oh yeah-- Hannity is pure truth right just like trump.. LOL? You might also try to find sources that don’t sing to the choir of unhinged folks tripping on their own dicks, otherwise known as Repulicans
