Damn it. Can't find a pitchfork or coal-oil torch anywhere. All sold out.

Wonder what this all about?

Dave (in MA)

Using a clip-art star that can only be confused as an antisemitic message by those who dearly want it to be one? Far worse than e-mailing around top secret info and lying about it. Get the pitchforks and torches!

“Remember when we were all concerned about our dependence on foreign oil? Well, let me tell you — we’ve cut the amount of oil we buy from other countries in half. Remember when the other team was promising they were going to get gas prices down in like 10 years? We did it. Did it.”

Thanks to President Obama’s unwavering support in the face of radical environmentalists for fracking and the Keystone pipeline (at least the parts in the US), he did it.

OL,

Fitton is spot on. After Boston, San Bernadino, Orlando et. al. i have no confidence in the FBI to do anything that makes me feel safer. We could have two people, BHO and HRC, who as private citizens could never get a security clearance (back in the day, not necessarily now) but end up with the nuclear football.

Oh Yeah LUN

Neo, he was TFG who was saying that he wanted gas prices to be higher, but the Kardashian-watching populace has the attention span of a, well, a Kardashian-watching populace, so they'll never catch on.

Of course he is.

I saw this nonsense earlier. Goodness I hate these GOPe traitors. People like Flake (and what a well deserved moniker he has) should stop caring about Mexicans and start caring about Americans. He does not "know" if he cann sup[port Trump if he keeps "saying those nasty things about Mexicans". Unbelievable out of any Republican. That just enrages me.

And Kirk--he votes like a democrat--I think he is a plant, myself. I swear these people are infiltrators. How repellent these people are. Do they understand what thy are doing to their party? Every time they mouth off like this they lose voters.

And this out of Ryan:

"Ryan said members talked to Trump about the constitutional roles of the president and Congress, reducing regulations and overhauling the tax code — all issues included the “A Better Way” policy blueprint House Republicans have rolled out in recent weeks."


Well. this is really too much--and from a so-called republican that is attacking the second amendment for absolutely now reason and in doing so will cost the GOP even more seats. It just makes one want to vomit.

What was it 10 days ago, Trump was broke? What is this this week, the outline of a six pointed star?

These people are going to lose this election.

After what has transpired this week, they are mincing around about whether or not "they can support Trump"?

After we have sucked it up and went on and on standing behind so many bad candidates and so many bad campaigns, and have seen so much damage to this nation--seen our votes betrayed on the Hill, they think is is about their petty sensibilities now, with so much at stake? What childish self-important middle aged mediocrities. Can they even be considered mediocrities.

How despicable, how wretched, how weak, feeble and unmanly. No wonder the country is in the tubes.

It is as though we have lost a war and are occupied by a alien power ruling through quislings.

Jack is Back!

I have lost all respect for Cruz. And all the other Congressmen and Seantors who still refuse to endorse Trump. Do they really think Hillary will make their re-election easier. Cowards.

No wonder the Trump phenom is a threat. Drain the swamp.

Donald

What are you going to say when Cruz endorses Trump Jack? Cause it think it's absolutely going to happen. When it does, it's gonna be ugly.

buccaneer morgan

Fidel Flake, yes he's reasonable, in kirks defense he did have a stroke not that long ago, counting against him voting for skydragon (cap and trade) as a congressman.

squaredance

"counting against him voting for skydragon (cap and trade) as a congressman."

As I said.


No one who does not denounce the hideous Climate Change plot deserves to hold office.

Any Republican how supports it should be disciplined by the party.

It is the sign of a weak mind, an infiltrator, or both.

It is as absurd a belief as the sky is paisley.

Jack is Back!

donald,

If when then why not now? Coward.

Miss Marple

If Cruz gets a prime time speaking slot, I foresee a debacle. Sorry, I don't trust him.

Jack is Back!

MM,

I'm with you. There is something disengenious about Cruz I could never put my finger on until he got beat and never offered to endorse Trump. Same with all the Congress critters in the same situation. A plague on all their houses. No excuse. This is nut cuitting time as they say in Wyoming.

Inside the beltway are scared. Really scared.

Miss Marple

Jack,

Trump was a gift to them if they cared about driving the democrats out and saving the country.

The fact that so many behaved in the opposite manner is an indictment of them.

If they sabotage the convention or steal his nomination, I am done.

Jack is Back!

From a FB friend:

Maria Baritoroma on FOX with Bret Baier - did they take notes during Tarmac-gate and if not, why not? Former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukase said it is required anytime the AG is on official business [she was on a GOVERNMENT aircraft supposedly on government business trip] they are required to have a note-taker taking down all that is said at all times.

Anyone with Federal law experience want to chime in?

buccaneer morgan

well alien ants, explain it, now considering trump relying on rocket surgeon wayne madsen's research, called him an adulterer, and his father an accessory to oswald, well a decent interval was due, however, it's time to get back on the team

squaredance

And remember, these people where throwing tantrums a few months back about whether or not Trump would "support the nominee".

Well, trump has gotten more primary votes than any other modern GOP candidate. The electorate has spoken.

So all of that stuff about "supporting the nominee" was just nothing but garbage. They are bunch of dishonorable hypocrites.

If they were out there shouting down every MSM depredation, there would not be an issue with this election. Hillary would be afraid to show her face. She would not have slithered through this "investigation".

They are worse than the Democrats. When this country finally fails, and it is beginning to look like it is more a matter of "When" than "If", the blame will be squarely on them.

You cannot even say that they are recalcitrant conservatives who balk at a "pragmatic, centrist populist", which is a cartoonish profile of Trump; they are not even conservatives, as Ryan;s assault on the 2nd amendment (again, for no reason whatsoever clearly shows, for they are not conservative. Yet if they were conservatives, what, may I ask ,are they conserving?


All of these years of mouthing conservative platitudes, of all the think tanks, "outreach", and palaver: what good has it done us. It was all sloganeering and posture. When they actually have a chance to do something to turn the nation around they clutch at their pearls and prattle about pragmatism and "true conservatism". They are pompous, selfish frauds.

They have just been kicked in the groin by Obama and Hillary. They have just been profoundly humiliated, and what is there response? Oh, well let us put a bill to keep "classified information" from Hillary, as if 1) it would ever pass, 2) they would ever obey it, and 3) she already has all of the intel channels she needs. Oh and what else? Oh lets cave to the democrats on gun control. Let us have the government decide who gets their constitutions rights bases on "lists".

If these people had been shouting about this while she was Sos, if they had been dragging all this out before the public the last few months, she would have been indicted and the electorate would know why.

But no, Trump is "too crude", "too crass", too nasty", and it seems that this is so because he bother to tell the truth and is man enough to confront her. How dreadfully "populist" of her. How can we ever even consider even talking to such a beast?

Even now they are protecting her, however accidentally or implicitly. But I really do not think it is accidental: it is merely covert.

buccaneer morgan

Now May rising out of the tory scrum, is a little like something from Trollope, not devious enough for House of Cards.

Jack is Back!

I may be the only one here to actually talk to buc aka narciso. He is one unique character. And if I ever decide to get a doctorate, I will make in Crytography and base my thesis on decyperhing the political, cultural and literary references, opinions and characterizations of narciso on the internet.

Sounds just as good as those fem/lesbian works on the working of a clitoris in sea turtles duinr a shark attack.

buccaneer morgan

sorry, in Phineas Redux, Daubeny, (Disraeli) does a controversial move, which keeps him in power, May was perhaps the most tepid of the Leavers she prevailed in the leadership contest, even though her stewardship of the Home Office was what triggered Leave in part,

Jack is Back!

narc,

House of Cards is based on Clinton's WH years. Ask Willliamson, he'll admit it.

squaredance

May is a remainer--she will scuttle this just watch.

And it is telling that all the big boys bowed out. May is being played because no matter what she does it is political death. She is too blinded by here feminist nonsense to understand that the men are playing her.

But if she gets in, Britexit will never happen. Just watch. What then? I will tell you, if they bring in more immigrant, if the try to humiliate and intimidate the LEAVE crowd, sooner or later the civliorder will break down over there. Particularly since the EU has come out with their "master plan" after the vote.

All of this bumps against the central paradox of the Globalist Institutional Left, and their fundamental miscalculation. They expect to maintain all that their civilization gives then while they busily and gleefully go about destroying that civilization.

They are like drugged and insane teenagers trashing their parents house.

Jack is Back!

...Willimon....damn autocorrect.

Neo @ 5:01

That Zero had the gall to brag about U.S. oil imports is just - it makes me so angry I see red.

I would like Trump to find a microphone and say something like:

"Barry Obama is bragging about cutting our oil imports in half. He's a liar! A damn liar!

You know why oil imports are cut in half? First, we're producing more. But it's no thanks to him. His crooked EPA has been doing everything it can for eight years to shut down oil production here. But the American people - private citizens, the ones who are gonna make American great again this November, did it in spite of Obama and his EPA. Because they're smarter than the clowns in Washington.

You know why else imports are down? Because most of the places that we buy oil from are disaster areas, and most of that is Obama's fault, too. The Middle East? It's one big war zone, thanks to Obama. Venezuela? They can't even pump their own oil to sell it, because Obama's communist pals down there have turned their country into one of the worst places on Earth.

Obama and his cronies didn't do one damn thing to make us independent of foreign oil. Not one thing! You did it - all you people out there, working hard, working extra hard because the government has been against you for eight years, but you did it anyway. Well, come November, when I'm elected, you'll have a government that will get the hell out of your way!"

buccaneer morgan

the original, Michael Dobbs, another Leaver, really did come to hate the Iron Lady, but he didn't have truck with the wets like Heseltine,

Boris was kind of like Newt, grand ideas, some personal foibles, but he didn't watch his flank

Bringing this over from old thread.

mr,
Just how does one go about talking behind someone else's back on an open blog? Neat trick I suppose.

The lack of a recorded interview (interrogation) with a criminal suspect is preposterous. Every interview I do has to be recorded.

Should also add that the star on my uniform has 6 points. I'm not Jewish the last time I checked.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

You would think that these GOPe guys who tell us Trump is so repellent and so ghastly and unspeakable would stop and consider for just a moment that the voters preferred him to them and, as bad as his approval ratings are, they're still better than the feckless, useless, groveling, putrid, anodyne, obsequious, sniveling band of reprobate pecksniffs and pusillanimous Quislings that make up the GOPe congress's are.

If he is so awful they can't even be seen with him and a coup is needed to rid us of his carcass and most of us consider them even more repugnant than he is why in the hell haven't they done the honorable thing so that hikers and hunters could find their crumpled bodies at the bottom of some deep ravine or beneath some lofty bridge somewhere?

If they think he's Mussolini and we think they're worse than him shouldn't they be pining for a metal girder somewhere to be hung upside down from, along with their mistresses?

And here I thought that narciso was someone out there running a Turing Test.

(BTW, did you actually see him? Just asking.)

SD,

Disagree. She will manage a more conservatice Breixit and it will appeal to the Euro's. Sure, she is not Boris or Faragae or even Gove but she is a realist. She will not upset the applecart.

In fact, it is now dawning on the UK how Brexit is or could be a big positive. Tourism is growing. Marmite sales are down but so what. The City will survice as will Canary Wharf. Chelsea will be a contender again and the Frogs will continue to sell wine to the Chunnel contingent.

All is good in the non-political universe.

No, I didn't see Narc. But I know enough to actually find him if I wanted to but I don't.

Narc, may be coming back in August to clean up my museum collection from the devastation of Mrs. JiB's renovation. First time back sine early last June.

Thinking about it meeting narc would be verrrry interesting. Same for GUS and BoE. Actually, meeting everyone here would be a great way to finalize your conceptual opoinions and perceptions.

So , I propose a milion man meet up. You can come to the Hamptons if you are prepared for a 4 hour drive for 80 miles or we can choose somewhere neutral like Cleveland in mid July or Philadelphia in August.

Lets go half way. Lexington, KY or Cincinnati?

It will never happen but it would be a blast to get everyone together at once.

Mr. Conservative

“Sen. Lee has not endorsed Donald Trump and has no plans to do so,” Lee’s spokesman told Breitbart News after Lee made headlines for suggesting that his Party’s standard-bearer is “religiously intolerant.”

By contrast, in an interview with the anti-Trump Huffington Post, Lee oozed praise for far-left Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), a potential VP contender for the Democratic Presidential ticket and avowed Trump opponent. Lee described Warren as “captivating,” “smart,” “talented,” “formidable,” “persuasive,” and a “hero” to Democrats.

Cruz was asked by Trump to speak at the convention and he has agreed to
do it.
I trust him completely because I believe him to be a man of honor.
Others have differing views.
I don't think people are cowards if it takes them some time to make up their mind about our candidate.
Today as mentioned on the other thread Ryan rallied the House Republicans and convinced one particular representative to give his support.
You will recall this was the strategy I suggested last week when I was being excoriated on this blog.
I am glad the Party is rallying behind Trump.
Flake is a Flake nothing to lose as he is not up for re-election.
Ryan also shut down an ABC reporter about the faux Star scandal.
Saw Trump's rally in Cincinnati and he did very well.
Don't recognize that list of people RG listed but I feel fairly certain they will not succeed.

I saw your earlier comment today referencing my comment about 6 weeks ago about security in Cleveland and if you don't live here you would know less about it.
It was a snarky comment meant to diminish me and I responded to it.
Talking behind a person's back is commenting about them when they are not on the blog at the time. There was no chance for me to respond to the obvious shot at me because I was not here at the moment it was made.
I am calling you on your behavior.
