TRUE DAT! Feckless dems couldn't make the case and want to change the rules that they have no say over. Typical. -



@the real Robert Cross

in the "It's a coverup stupid' category --trumpler said today ". "But honestly, we have all the material. They don't have the material." in reference to possible incriminating evidence. Kind of like when he openly adimitted that if a foreign government had dirt on an opponent "I think I'd like to hear it." and the famous "if your listening" gaffe. Moscow Mitch needs to get this over before trumpler openly admits he abused the office of President.

Administrivia - Please note the 22jan20 Scattershots update that invites Senate trial comments. Thank you.


Paul Emery: "Gregory
Just looking at State and Fed election counts for Nevada County for the last two election cycles and it's practically all Dem. Hillary for Pres for example Newsom for Gov on and on and on Dems for congress ."

Gregory: ""Practically All" being 53%, in the Governor's race?
That's a usage of the term "Practically All" of which I was previously unaware.
Why lie about something so easily checked, Punch?"

That's actually a pretty good question.

Why lie about something so easily checked? Does lying come naturally or is it a learned behavior?

Don Bessee

Come on now don't go screwing up the talking point with facts, schiff for brains might stroke out! LOL!!


No wonder we have pink hat wearing blue mobs and red guard antifa pieces of shit running amok. Free speech means parroting the party line or else, if you don't you are attacked in every way possible -

…..still president Bertie!


lol. Watch out Mr Bessee @7:21, or you'll find yourself in a Bernie Camp(tm) someday.

You know, when you're on a religious mission to save the world any behavior is acceptable.

For anyone needing a reading assignment, this book isn't too bad.

The first section nicely builds a case for 'progressives' as post-Protestant mainline Protestants.

KFC apologizes for “sexist” ad that shows young boys staring at woman’s breasts

I like Christina Sommers’s reply.

“Translation, we don't think we can frickin win this one with the socialist dem clown car occupants.”

Sadly, it’s more than that. In their own words, the Dem Leadership cannot trust the voting public, Republican or Democrat. They, and only they, know what is best for you. In fact, they (the Dem Leadership, Lamestream media, Deep State) are terrified shitless of the voting public....as well they should be. It’s what the Founder’s desired for the ones who are our servants.

Its ok for a dude to beat up women because he says he is one, ask the victims if they agree with that. -

Fox, a male to female transgender athlete, destroyed Erika Newsome in a Coral Gables, FL, MMA fight during which she “secured a grip on Newsome’s head… With her hands gripping the back of Newsome’s skull, she delivered a massive knee, bringing her leg up while pulling her opponent’s head down. The blow landed on Newsome’s chin and dropped her, unconscious, face-first on the mat.” That was Newsome’s last pro fight.

But to Outsports, a male-bodied person beating a female bodied person unconscious constitutes bravery. Not only has Fox beat up women in the ring, won every match but one, but has weathered online attacks from the likes of Joe Rogan. I think we can all agree that getting back online after Joe Rogan has knocked you down is far braver than facing another male-bodied of your own muscle mass and size in a fight.

Fox also beat Tamikka Brents, giving her a concussion and breaking 7 orbital bones. But that’s super brave, too, taking an unfair, male-bodied advantage and using it to give female-bodied opponents brain injuries.

I love the ATT commercial where the snowflake can not deal with the intrusive voice controlled devices not complying and just yelling at it louder. How about being in control of your space and electronics offline. Thanks I phones, NOT!



lol. It's good to see that the NYT finally decided to run some Wuhan articles after the Trump orgy that's been going on.

I swear, about the only way to stay current on things that actually matter is to check out 4chan.

In his own words


Paul Emery


Practically all of the elections in Nevada County not practically all of the votes in those elections wend Democratic. Goodness you're dense.

Goodness you're dense.

Says the man who obsesses over polls 36 months before the election


Paul Emery

"Just looking at State and Fed election counts for Nevada County for the last two election cycles and it's practically all Dem. Hillary for Pres for example Newsom for Gov" follow by "Practically all of the elections in Nevada County not practically all of the votes in those elections wend Democratic. Goodness you're dense."

Aha, you don't mean that the count is 'practically all', but that 'practically all the elections' went a bare majority. I see. So 50%+1 on all elections is a clear landslide.

Being a newsman and all, I'd think you could write more clearly. I know that it's rude to peer into peoples' sex lives, but perhaps a good start would be to use *both* hands on the keyboard when typing your delightful little screeds.


punchy 1140pm

Goodness, your English is sloppy.

Your message is consistent... if one is not Progressive/Liberal, you should probably move to a friendlier town.


fish: "Says the man who obsesses over polls 36 months before the election"

To be fair, he's probably not as stupid as he comes off here.

What I can't stand is the fact that he's a tagger. Being of advanced age, it's a lot easier to simply kick back and randomly vandalize someone else's blog.

I'm always sad when Frisch stomps off, with the inevitable trailing insults concerning the way he makes a living and his hiring practices. Of the local liberals, he at least puts up something of a fight. The other guys just come off as a combination of a kid with a spray can and an angry Emily Litella.


"To be fair, he's probably not as stupid as he comes off here."

So, you've not met Punchy?

To be fair, he's probably not as stupid as he comes off here.

No……but still stupid enough.

The discussions used to be better but nothing was ever resolved and by the end of every thread it was nothing but invective!

I generally jump straight to the insults these days……huge time saver.


Gregory: "So, you've not met Punchy?"

Heard him on the radio.

He has served one purpose in my ongoing education though. After reading hundreds of ultra-partisan yet trivial posts by Paul here, it's made me distrust media public figures even more. They'll stand on their two hind legs and pretend an even handed statement, but it's all BS. It's a local version (very local) of the insanity you can see on twitter.

It takes some real work to act like Brian Lamb.


Liewatha gets owned.
"“My daughter is in school. I saved all my money. Am I gonna get my money back?” the dad asked.

“Of course not,” Warren replied.

“So you’re gonna pay for people who didn’t save any money, but those of us who did the right thing get screwed?” the man asked."


Here Emery, some "news" for your from CNN.
"Lockhart tweeted: “Overheard convo between two Republican Senators who only watch Fox News. “is this stuff real? I haven’t heard any of this before. I thought it was all about a server. If half the stuff Schiff is saying is true, we’re up shit’s creek. Hope the White House has exculpatory evidence”.

"CNN political analyst Joe Lockhart created fake news in real time during President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate on Wednesday, falsely claiming that House Democrats were swaying Senate Republican opinions."


Todd Juvinall

CNN poll breakdown. But they don't tell us how many California and NY people. The poll is a crock anyway and shows us why Paul Emery is so off on his love of these things.


A total of 1,156adults,including an oversample of 150adults living in 15 battleground states: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin, were interviewed by telephonenationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones.Oversampled stateshave been weighted to represent their proper share of the adult population.Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish. Among the entire sample, 32% described themselves as Democrats, 26% described themselves as Republicans, and 42% described themselves as independents or members of another party.All respondents were asked questions concerning basic demographics, and the entire sample was weighted to reflect national Census figures for gender, race, age, education, region of country, and telephone usage.Results for the full sample have a margin of sampling error of +/-3.4percentage points. For the sample of 1,051registered voters,it is +/-3.6percentage points. For the subset of 500Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents who are registered to vote, it is +/-5.3percentage points.For the subset of 509adults living in the 15 battleground states, it is +/-5.4percentage points.Interviews were conducted among a representative sample of the adult population, age 18 or older, of the United States. Members of demographic groups not shown in the published crosstabs are represented in the results for each question in the poll. Crosstabs on the pages that follow only include results for subgroups with a minimum n=125 unweighted cases. Results for subgroups with fewer than n=125 unweighted cases are not displayed and instead are denoted with "SN" because samples of that size carry larger margins of sampling error and can be too small to be projectable with confidence to their true values in the populati

Walt @ 8:44 am.

Well, if you don’t have Lanny Davis handy or have Senator Reed sitting in the well of the Senate (with complete immunity) declaring that he knows Mitt Romney did not pay his taxes and has proof,, it only makes sense that they dust off someone from the Obama pile and bring in Joe Lockhart.

Susan Rice and Sally Yeats are laying low.
