Rewrite for your convenience

This edit makes it simple to see the extent of Rasmussen's mood changes. Who knows what it will be next week. Check out the link

Rasmussen is all over the place. Last Wednesday Trump was down by 9. Why do you think that is Gregory? They are the only poll with such mood swings. Glad it makes you feel good. Trump still down by nearly 8 in RCP election votes averages and down by 107 in RCP electoral vote polls.

check the approval numbers here and you'll find Trump down by 9 on Wed:

Trump Approval Index History

31-Jul-20 50% 48%

Since Emery just LOVES the ly'n bastard Biden,, Here is a little more,
https://dailycaller.com/2020/07/31/biden-startup-health-howard-krein-ppp/
"Howard Krein, who is married to Biden’s daughter, Ashley Biden, and also serves as an informal advisor to the Biden campaign, is the chief medical officer of StartUp Health, which as of September 2018 had built up an investment portfolio valued at over $31 million. The firm received a PPP loan valued between $150,000 and $350,000 on April 12 to retain the jobs of 18 people, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Nine days later, on April 21, Biden accused Trump in a Medium post of leaving small businesses with less than 20 employees behind in his administration’s management of the PPP."

Still loath LIARS Emery? Or is that just selective loathing of liars?,, They can LIE like a rug as long as they have a (D)(P)(Commie) next to their name.....Can you please confirm that?

For our local lunatics on the Left: go pound sand, ye lying sacks of shit.

‘New Disclosures Confirm: Trump Himself Was the Target of Obama Administration’s Russia Probe’
Assertions that the focus was ‘the Trump campaign’ are now known to be ludicrous

“There is still plenty of paper trail to uncover. I haven’t even referred here to the Steele dossier, which investigators knew was bogus but relied on to seek — and obtain — court-authorized eavesdropping. I haven’t mentioned the unmasking of Trump officials indirectly targeted in foreign-intelligence collection. We haven’t considered the collaboration of American and foreign intelligence agencies in the scrutiny of Trump, or the collaboration of Obama officials and congressional Democrats, as well as the media, to promote the narrative that Trump was a Russian operative. There is much still to learn and to weigh.

But this much we know: In the stretch run of the 2016 campaign, President Obama authorized his administration’s investigative agencies to monitor his party’s opponent in the presidential election, on the pretext that Donald Trump was a clandestine agent of Russia. Realizing this was a gravely serious allegation for which there was laughably insufficient predication, administration officials kept Trump’s name off the investigative files. That way, they could deny that they were doing what they did. Then they did it . . . and denied it.”

Why bother stealing it when creepy grampa joe and the socialist 5th column will give it to them if they win -

“Once again we see the People’s Republic of China (PRC) facilitating the theft of our nation’s ingenuity and hard work as part of their quest to rob, replicate and replace any product they don’t have the ability to develop themselves,” said John C. Demers, the assistant attorney general for national security. “Far from being an isolated incident, we see the PRC implicated in around 60 percent of all trade secret theft cases. This continued economic belligerence runs contrary to the values and norms that facilitate the success of our industries and countering it remains among our highest priorities.”

Walt

Now who didn't see this coming?
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/08/02/clinton-aide-advises-joe-biden-whatever-you-do-dont-debate-trump/
"Whatever you do, don’t debate Trump. Trump has now made more than 20,000 misleading or false statements according to the Washington Post. It’s a fool’s errand to enter the ring with someone who can’t follow the rules or the truth. Biden will undoubtedly take heat from Republicans and the media for skipping the debates. But it’s worth the risk as trying to debate someone incapable of telling the truth is an impossible contest to win."

AND of course, they plan is to call Trump a liar.

Never mind all the lies Joe has been busted on... THOSE were just fine..... Joe being Joe.

The real fact is,, Trump will eat Biden's lunch, and all Biden will be able to do is sit there and watch.

Lets ruin this Sunday for the TDS set -

A new poll released this weekend shows President Donald Trump, the incumbent GOP president, has taken a national and battleground states lead over his Democrat challenger presumptive nominee former Vice President Joe Biden.

The survey, from the Democracy Institute commissioned by the Sunday Express newspaper, shows Trump leading Biden 48 percent to 46 percent. What’s more, Trump has opened up a bigger lead according to this poll in the crucial battleground states, meaning the president by this pollster’s estimates currently is projected to win 309 electoral votes—more than he did in 2016.


Overall, this poll has Trump nationally at 48 percent to Biden’s 46 percent with six percent undecided. Among white voters, Trump leads 53 percent to 46 percent. Trump is surprisingly strong with black voters at 20 percent in this poll—he got about eight percent of the black vote in 2016—while this survey has Biden at 77 percent. Hispanic voters in this poll break for Biden 51 percent to 38 percent, which would also represent an increase for the president over his 2016 performance with Hispanics.

“Crucially, President Trump has a lead of 48 percent to 43 percent in the swing states Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin which would put him back in the White House with an electoral college tally of 309 to Biden’s 229,” David Maddox, the political editor for the Sunday Express, wrote about his newspaper’s survey.

“The polling suggests Mr Trump is emerging as the race leader because of a belief he is best in handling the economy,” Maddox wrote. “With a third of voters putting the economy as the top election issue and 66 percent thinking that the economy is bouncing back after coronavirus, voters believe that Trump is better for the economy by 57 percent to 43 percent.”

Although Biden remains in a competitive race with Donald Trump, and may well do so until election day, his support isn’t growing,” Basham said. “And, tellingly, almost all of the issues that matter most to voters are trending in President Trump’s favour. More Americans are concerned about the economy and keeping their current, or getting a new, job. They don’t especially blame Trump for the lockdown-induced economic contraction, and they think he’ll do a better job of righting the economic ship than Biden.”

Welcome to comrade deblasios revolution -

The uptick in violence has reportedly affected every borough, with at least 942 people -- either dead or injured -- accounting for the victims.

Saturday night’s victim told police he was near the Mitchel Houses project in Mott Haven at 135th Street and Alexander Avenue when he was caught between crossfire.

Mario Martinez, a neighbor who's been living in the area for more than half a century, told the Post he has “never seen it this bad.”

Another winning position -

Overall, about 70 percent of all voters said they support excluding illegal aliens from such counts

Across party and racial lines, Trump’s decision is hugely popular. About 72 percent of white Americans, 67 percent of black Americans, and 57 percent of Hispanic Americans said they supported counting either only citizens or citizens and legal residents when determining congressional representation for the states.

A majority of Republican voters, 52 percent, said they support counting only citizens in the counts, while 57 percent of Democrats and 65 percent of swing voters said they support excluding illegal aliens.

If my sources are correct (which have a near perfect battling percentage), then Joe Biden's condition has exasperated and has taken a rapid turn from bad to worst.

So today is the day Trump was going to announce his plan for health care. Gosh and golly, I seemed to have missed it. Can anyone update me about what he announced?

"In a FOX News interview taped July 17 and aired two days later, Trump told Chris Wallace:

“We’re signing a health care plan within two weeks, a full and complete health care plan that the Supreme Court decision on DACA gave me the right to do.”

Let’s break that down. First, it’s been two weeks. Have you seen a health care plan? Has Trump? Just weeks before that, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar admitted they have no plan. That’s because there isn’t one and there never has been. Second, the Supreme Court ruling on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival immigration program ― DACA ― did no such thing."

"“When it comes to teaching history in Illinois, we need to end the miseducation of Illinoisans,” Ford said in the release. “I’m calling on the Illinois State Board of Education and local school districts to take immediate action by removing current history books and curriculum practices that unfairly communicate our history.”

“Until a suitable alternative is developed, we should instead devote greater attention toward civics and ensuring students understand our democratic processes and how they can be involved,” he continued."

Care to say just what that "suitable alternative" could be?

I’m sure that during his second term he “will have more flexibility”.

Bill Tozer

“People were breathlessly waiting on his great healthcare plan that was coming out today.....”

Think that is bad, get this. A couple of Dem donors drank some fish tank cleaner.
I didn’t hear a peep today from the media being all hot and bothered and breathlessly awaiting the Breaking News story of some kind of healthcare plan. They were too busy repeating the words, “peaceful protestors”. Not a peep. Maybe cracked pot Amy Goodman scowled about it, but highly unlikely. It lives in the hallowed chamber of TDS lore.

Here's the latest Trump quote from last night. I can't believe you'd support him after this...

"President Donald Trump again extended well-wishes to accused sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, apparently expressing sympathy for Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime companion.

“Her friend, or boyfriend, was either killed or committed suicide in jail. She’s now in jail,” Trump told Axios’ Jonathan Swan in an interview that aired Monday night on HBO.

“Yeah, I wish her well,” he said. “I’d wish you well. I’d wish a lot of people well. Good luck. Let them prove somebody was guilty.”

The president’s latest remarks on Maxwell come after he drew significant criticism two weeks ago for his initial reaction to the news of her arrest.

“I’ve met her numerous times over the years, especially since I lived in Palm Beach, and I guess they lived in Palm Beach. But I wish her well, whatever it is,” Trump told reporters at a White House coronavirus briefing.

The French-born socialite and publishing heiress was taken into custody by the FBI early last month after a federal grand jury returned an indictment charging her with four felony sex trafficking charges stemming from her alleged grooming of teenage girls to be sexually assaulted by Epstein"

punchy 747am

So, you'd like presidents to go back to the "obviously guilty" pronouncements of Nixon?

Remember,she has yet to go to trial... had he said what the prematurely vindictive would have him say, he'd be roundly (and rightly) criticized by the civil libertarians amongst us.

Paul Emery

Why should he say anything Gregory. What an idiot Trump is. Remember, he was supporting the "lock her up" cheer against Hillary. She was not even arrested or under investigation

George Rebane

PaulE 747am - I think Gregory’s 825am pretty much nails it for me. And in your 841am you forget that Hillary was indeed under investigation (twice) by Comey’s FBI - recall the two infamous press announcements he made regarding the FBI’s findings and his own overriding recommendations about her prosecution.

But the bottom line here again is that not only can you have your own opinions and facts, but also your own sense of justice. And after all these months you still don’t understand the trade offs between our braggadocious president and Bumblebrain Biden. Nevertheless, I patiently await your epiphanies on these and other matters, and will celebrate them with you when they arrive. Until then, barn circling is the order of the day.

Paul Emery

So George Trump saying "let them prove she is guilty" for someone who has been arrested for sex crimes against children is ok in your view for a President of this country to comment on.

George Rebane

George

I'm not talking about his rights George but my goodness do you think that comment is good for the President to say? He is implying sympathy for someone charged with a vicious crime against children. I mean prepping girls for a life of prostitution is as bad as it gets.

Robert Cross

Perhaps trumpler's expressions of support for Maxwell are code for. 'keep your mouth shut about me and you will get the same treatment as Stone and Flynn.. You know, lie and you will be saved.

paul emery

Well Robert there are two possible reasons Trump could have had for saying such a thing. One is that he an ulterior motive such as something like you note or that he is a stupid idiot to even go there in an election year. I go for the latter because everyone knows he's a stupid idiot with a loose mouth. There is ample proof to document that so that's my hunch.

Bill Tozer

What I can't figure out is after court docs where released is why the Clinton-Epstein story isn't news....big news. Opps, we know why. Everybody knows why.

in the 'bait and switch' category : all the fools who followed trumpler's lead and didn't swear masks because 1) those that did were commies. 2) Covid is a Chinese hoax. 3). it will just go away especially if we don't test anyone... can now be 'patriots' by wearing masks according to your fearless leader.. Maybe trumpler is capable of learning something new.. but probably because a campaign advisor told him to say it and it might get him a few more votes by killing fewer of his supporters.

‘Native American Seattle City Councilwoman Dresses Down ‘Defund The Police’ Protesters After Being Targeted’

Protesters have showed up at her house by the dozens a few times, shining their car headlights into her windows at night and using a bullhorn to chant and hurl insults, she said. She stayed at a motel one night and warned family members to keep away,” according to the outlet. “People also spray-painted names such as ‘corporate bootlicker’ and obscene messages on her street, and they continue to send her harassing and threatening texts.”

In a city council meeting last week, Juarez tore into the protesters, accusing those pressing to Defund the Police” of “poisoning” the movement for greater racial equality with their “white privilege.”......

“This is my life. This is home. This is not Coachella. This is not City Hall,” Juarez said. “Also, I’m not the toxic dumping ground where you need to come talk about your white privilege and how you need to talk about Black lives, because you sure as f**k don’t care about my life.””

“The hypocrisy of these goofy white people who have these Black Lives Matter T-shirts are all of a sudden ‘woke’ and talking about centering BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) is bulls**t,” Juarez said. “Because they didn’t live our lives. They didn’t live our trauma. That’s the hypocrisy that breaks my heart because they don’t know who I am.”

THE DECLINE AND FALL OF SAN FRANCISCO
Not long ago UC Hastings School of Law, as well-regarded law school in downtown San Francisco, sued the city because local neighborhood conditions had deteriorated to the point that the law school was losing prospective students who took one look at the place and said, “No, thanks!” Hastings is a very liberal law school—I don’t think they have a single conservative on their faculty—but as Robert Conquest reminded us, everyone is conservative about the matters they know best or which affect them most directly.

The city settled with Hastings, agreeing to remove 300 tented homeless people. If you live elsewhere in San Francisco, you’re not as lucky.

‘The Woke Left v. the Alt-Right: A New Study Shows They’re More Alike Than Either Side Realizes‘

“The problem, of course, is that it has been the PCA branch of progressivism that have been ascendant in recent years, at least in the United States. Whereas the dominant strain of cultural leftism once was primarily characterized by a spirit of compassion, it increasingly has come to be dominated by intolerant scolds who seem more eager to shame heretics than to do actual good in the world. Studies like this one should serve as a wake-up call: Given the strident manner with which progressives denounce bigotry, it surely should trouble them to know that, where underlying personalities are concerned, priests and heretics look very much alike.”

Reminds me of a Pat Caddell quote (the prophet of the alienated electorate)
from decades ago that I have posted here several times. To paraphrase, David Duke and the [then] rising star Jewish socialist Bernie Sanders “both sup from the same pot.”

Robert Cross

George 3:01 --" the silly things that come out of his mouth". To call trump's verbal discrepancies "silly things" belies the fact that those 'silly things' are obvious signs of deep psychological issues that go way beyond being silly, especially considering the position of power the man occupies. He is a sick puppy whose inflated self-image is crashing down around him.... Crazy and dangerous... Whether you agree nor not, the best, short term, thing for this country is to overwhelmingly dump trump and start over in 2024. It really doesn't matter that Biden is vanilla, but like Lyndon Johnson, he knows the ropes of Congress which will help put some of the pieces back together, unlike all of the kings horses and all of the kings men have been, so far, unable to do. Then, perhaps, the nation can get back to business as usual without all of the phony drama and have a real election and debate in 2024 about the nation's future direction on any number of fronts. But currently, business is not as usual and, perhaps, people need to think outside of the box.

RobertC 558pm - Now here I think you are the silly boy if you believe that Biden will finish his first and only term. I already informed you months ago (I think I was the first) that the DNC made Biden an offer for nominating him. They choose his VP, and he resigns with honor (health problem, et al) before completing his term so that the VP can run as the incumbent in 2024. And today all the short list VPs are corrupt and/or communists. So Bumblebrain knowing "the ropes of Congress" is sheer fantasy; he doesn't even know where they currently keep the ropes, let alone which ones to pull.

PS. Do you really think they'll let him debate Trump?

I don’t think Seattle can wait until 2024. The Brownshirts are huffing and puffing and trying to blow the house down now.

WHITE BLM MOB COMES CALLING ON HOME OF SEATTLE’S BLACK POLICE CHIEF

“A hooded gang of mostly white thugs shows up at the private neighborhood residence of a black police chief, with equipment they refuse to unwrap, question little children, and terrify the neighbors. Let’s not fool ourselves. This is not a civil rights protest, and it’s not about George Floyd. It’s the mob — a bunch of Brownshirts — and if we tolerate it, we won’t be able to claim later on that we didn’t know what was coming.“

Here Lefties,, your elected politicians on crime and riots.
https://dailycaller.com/2020/08/04/ted-cruz-mazie-hirono-antifa/
"Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz clashed with Democratic Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono at the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing Tuesday on antifa violence.


Cruz, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution, convened the hearing to discuss the role antifa and other left-wing groups play in ongoing riots in major U.S. cities like Portland.

Before getting up to leave the hearing, Hirono said “we can all agree” on denouncing “violent extremism of all stripes.”

“So to constantly accuse Democrats of not caring about that is … I can only say that you aren’t listening,” she added. “So I hope this is the end of this hearing, Mr. Chairman, and we don’t have to listen to any more of your rhetorical speeches. Thank you very much. I’m leaving.”

“I appreciate the, as always the kind and uplifting words of Senator Hirono,” Cruz responded. “And I would also note that throughout her remarks she still did not say a negative word about antifa, nor has any Democrat here. They instead engage in a political game where they depend — you’re welcome to say something negative about Antifa right now.” "

It’s good when Rebane Ruminations resident “Wine Aunt” drops by to dispense her brand of homespun, alcohol fueled wisdom.

Wine Aunt

A woman who claims to be liberal and open minded, but it is authoritarian, judgmental, and prone to shutting out any opinion that differs from her worldview. Often, has no children or just one, but nevertheless adopts a matronly status because of the authority motherhood lends her voice.

”Karen, the wine aunt, sipped her Merlot as she cussed out people as monsters for questioning the qualifications of her favorite Democratic politicians on Facebook. She then blocked them when they asked her to elaborate.”

Wow Fish, I am impressed. Learn something new everyday. What was it that jon smith called H. Hodge? A finger-pointing self-lamenting something lesbian. Whatever jon/Linda said, it was a perfect sentence that applies to wine aunt.

And after that eruption, we never heard from jon smith or about his Turkish friend again. Or have we?
