Dave (in MA)

I'm more excited about Hilligula being behind than I am about Trump being ahead, but that's just me.

Frau Nie Wieder Clinton

Dave (in MA) - Hillary! is "leading from behind."

I hope all lamps are kept at a distance.

maryrose

Dave
I feel the same.
Unimpressed so far with possible VP for Trump.

Thomas Collins

Has anyone looked at how Reuters Rolling weights its raw results? RR continues to be an outlier. In any event, this makes it harder for The Cabal to effect The Coup in Cleveland.

Captain Hate

Uncle Jack is just not very popular and Sergeant Schultz Comey and LoLy can't do anything to change that.

matt

From what I read in the papers, Trump is in trouble. He doesn't have Hillary's billions and every right minded thinker in the country is agin' him.

He has stumbled time and again and even Stanley McChrystal has ruled himself out of contention for the VP slot. RBG has threatened to leave the country and I'm sure the Wise Latina and the Fireplug are equally upset albeit more discreet. Breyer may have to issue a ruling from the bench, for goodness sake if this continues.

I just cannot explain these polls. I feel a bout of the vapors coming on.

Thomas Collins

In any event, my new slogan is Garops For Four Games and The Donald For Four Years!

Rosa klebb seems to be her wardrobe selector, they've been doing a Bond marathon,

maryrose

Frau:
Love your comment.
I think she has inherited the Merde Touch of Obama.
As we speak her lawyers are trying t get her out of a under deposition by Judicial Watch.
Should t there be a limit on how many congressional hearings and court cases a potential president endures before people wake up and say this person is not qualified for the highest in the land?

maryrose

TC
The comments supporting Brady and encouraging him to go to the SC are few and far between.
I think your slogan is a good one.

maryrose

Should be under oath

maryrose

Matt:
Trump is ahead of Hillary after she spent 57 million on ads against him.
Trump spent 3million and I think will be ok in the money area.
Clinton blows through cash and doesn't pay bills.
She is careless as is Bill with other people's money
They really are Tom and Daisy Buchanan of this era.

Thomas Collins

I'm at the point, maryrose, that I am looking forward to seeing whether Garoppolo is a plausible successor to Brady. It's nice that people think Garops does well in practice and exhibition games. Let's see him perform in four real games.

maryrose

Hillary taking a direct hit from lying to the American people.

Thomas Collins

Besides, what a great scenario if Brady sits for four, Pats win Super Bowl, and Brady is on the podium on the field with Goodell!

maryrose

TC
I think he has a promising future.
I am not one to put all my eggs in one basket.

buccaneer morgan

my battle is with team Ming, I mean Goodell, fine let garoppolo start, maybe he'll excite like manziel,

maryrose

Trump considered more honest and trustworthy than Hillary in 3 critical swing states.
She dropped by 6 points.

maryrose

Buccaneer:
Manziel in Cleveland is like Voldemort.
We no longer speak his name.

Frau Nie Wieder Clinton

This is not the people's business. It's apparent they work willingly for Daddy Soros.

Democratic senators have been assigned conservative nonprofit groups to call out by name on the chamber floor in speeches on Monday and Tuesday criticizing corporations and advocacy groups for opposing Democratic climate policies, internal emails reveal.

Nineteen Senate Democrats will attack specific organizations in what they are calling a “web of denial,” according to a schedule of floor speeches circulated by Emily Enderle, a top environmental policy adviser to Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D., R.I.), who is spearheading the effort.


Poor little Rhode Island...

rich

more like Steyer and the AFL-CIO ... but it is really Hydra.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--Clinton blows through cash...--

The old yak is actually spending money here in CA in July on these gag inducing black and white commercials saying, as best I can tell in the brief period I scramble to find the remote, that Hillary does everything for the little children.
I have to figure virtually everyone with > two brain cells has the same visceral reaction that I do that she resembles nothing more than the old witch in the woods pinching their cheeks to see if they'll need any fattening up before popping them in the oven.

Regardless what possible sense does it make to waste money now, here?

Frau Nie Wieder Clinton

Why are we the only ones aware of this?

(Harvard professor)Mr. Fryer, who is black, told The New York Times that the finding of no racial discrimination in police shootings was “the most surprising result of my career.”

Will Pres. Blech give Prof. Fryer "The Talk"?

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Props for not confirming his bias.
Poops for assuming his bias in the first place.

Frau Nie Wieder Clinton

Iggy, it's to make sure the useful idjits stagger to the polls in November.

The Republicans may have the words "liberty" and "freedom" but you'll have to pry the words "for the chirren" from the Dems' grasping, grubbing hands. What else do they have?

rich

wonder when this one is going to be re-cut

Theo

If the Republicans had any kind of a decent candidate, they would win the White House in a walk. She is a terrible candidate running as "more of the same" in a year when the country is hungry for a change.

Of course, this was pointed out to the primary voters before this and they went ahead and did what they did. Too late to change that now.

Can this goofball win? Maybe even he has a chance given how terrible a candidate she continues to be.

Heaven help us all.

JM Hanes

Frau:

LOL! Apparently they figured out that inciting State AG's to prosecute such folks may have some unpleasant legal/constitutional repercussions, when folks started to sue them for it. So now they're taking refuge on the Senate floor, where, as we know, folks can lie to their unfettered hearts' content.

And, right on time, Theo shows up with his Eeyore-like take on things, right when everyone is cheerful about the polls.

Beasts of England

Sorry that the primary voters didn't bend to the wishes of their betters, Theo. No wonder Trump is the nominee...

rich

Theo-

if any of the other 16 candidates were "decent" then why did Trump stomp on them all ...


Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--Hillary and her supporters want to pretend that electing a woman to continue the corporatist/statist regime of the last few decades represents "change".--

Does it count as the first woman president if she has hairy pits, curses like a sailor, throws lamps like Sandy Koufax and enjoys steaming carpets more than the Rug Doctor; especially if her predecessor cringes like a little girl, throws like Grandma Moses, wears his mommy's jeans on his little pink bike and whose favorite treat plumps when you cook it?

Jack is Back! (As Mr. Fixit)

Progress report:

It took me all of 40 minutes and 35 specific steps to disassemble Frederick's 11" MacBook Air. Having the proper tool kit from IFIXIT plus the magnetic flex white board for keep parts in order really helps. There are some ingenious electronic details and especially the mother board layout.

Now I will await Master Frederick's return from Camp on Saturday so he can work with me to see how we can fix the darn thing now that it is pieces. Looks to be a connectivity issue with the board cable to the display unit. That and fixing up the hinges.

Thomas Collins

C'mon, Ignatz, give her some credit. She can make long lost billing records appear out of nowhere, apparently ran an email system with more private servers than a landed aristocrat has butlers, and has done more listening tours than Mick Jagger has done rock tours!

Captain Hate

So now they're taking refuge on the Senate floor, where, as we know, folks can lie to their unfettered hearts' content.

That's a good point since the Searchlight exercise band warrior regularly makes unhinged comments there with no repercussions other than parents hiding their children.

derwill

Yes, Theo, the voters are hungry for change--that is why they voted for Trump. Duh!

James D

Of course, this was pointed out to the primary voters before this and they went ahead and did what they did. Too late to change that now.

It was pointed out to the other candidates and the GOP leadership early last fall that GOP primary voters were very upset about immigration, among other issues Trump was campaigning on, and VERY angry at DC business as usual, and none of them listened.

It was pointed out to the Nevertrump whiners as early as December that they ought to come together behind a single anti-Trump candidate, so that the votes of those who weren't supporting Trump wouldn't be split several ways (thus ensuring Trump's victories in so many primaries), and none of them listened.

I could go on, but you know all this and you never, ever respond to it, nor do any of the folks who remain vocally NeverTrump.

I am very, very tired of hearing from the people who had 56% of the GOP primary voters, the full support of nearly all the party's institutional and "intellectual" leadership, and over $600 million, and still could not beat a political newcomer who had a skeleton staff, virtually no formal party support, 1/10 the money of his opponents, and only 44% of the party's voters.

You want to keep complaining about Trump being the nominee? You want to blame somebody? Look in the (REDACTED) mirror, OK?

Barry

"If the Republicans had any kind of a decent candidate, they would win the White House in a walk."

Theo, like Romney?

Perhaps the best candidate the republicans have had since Reagan is Trump. Certainly is in my book.

Charles Payne having a nice chat with Nigel Farage on this day when Cameron leaves and Teresa May takes over as Britain's next Prime Minister. Nigel makes the point that the first Prime minister that had an audience with this current Queen was Winston Churchill.

Nigel says he will be at the RNC Convention next week, but doesn't know if he will be asked to give a speech. He also mentions that he is a good friend of Jeff Sessions. Very impressive.

Top o' the morning!

This is truly shocking and a very influential ed site. https://www.edsurge.com/news/2016-07-13-a-commitment-to-confronting-our-bias-and-privileges

There is no mention of dallas at all. It's merely about confronting what could lead to all these black 'shootings' with nary a word that being poor behavior prone and arrested repeatedly might also be influential.

We said it would go away quickly, but not like this. I have a new post up that this seems to prove right.

One of the most frustrating things about Kristol is that the Weekly Standard has long lambasted the GOPe for failing to deliver on their campaign promises and now after the three strikes of not pushing back against Zippy following 2010, 2012 and 2014, the voters want a non-establishment candidate. Why are you not understanding this, Bill?

Porchlight

It was foretold that Theo would jump immediately from "Oh no, he can't win" to "Oh no, he might win!"

The NeverTrumpers still can't decide on a narrative, which is a shame for them, because narrative is all they have.

Porchlight

I hear that Farage and Geert Wilders are attending the RNC. Airhorn!

Miss Marple 2

daddy,

Thanks for the report on Farage, who is one of my favorite politicians. He has a great sense of humor and fearlessly allows himself to be photographed with an ale in one hand and a cigarette in the other.

OMG! Hillary is in Springfield, Illinois talking about race relations and using her "kindergarten teacher talking to dumb students" voice.

Frau Nie Wieder Clinton

Iggz sez: "... she (the sea hag) resembles nothing more than the old witch in the woods pinching their cheeks to see if they'll need any fattening up before popping them in the oven."

I now give myself a timeout...

Hillary fundraising campaign getting desperate:

Seems as if the fact that Trump raised $3m in May and $50m in June has them a bit spooked.

Miss Marple 2

Hillary is telling us to listen to each other.

Especially the victims of police officers.

She's listing a bunch of victims.

Miss Marple 2

Now she is talking about police dead, and listing officers killed in Dallas.

Threading the needle with trying to get both sides to feel like they are supported.

That post cracked me up but describes Hildebeast to a T.

FOX playing Teresa May's live speech. I think in the background I can hear protesters hollering unified chants, just a bit too far away to pick up whatever they are shrieking about.

Teresa May sounds very much like a Democrat. Praises Cameron for Same Sex Marriage and for some increases in the Welfare system. Wants to close the pay gap between workers and bosses.

Quick and dirty speech, and Charles Payne does a good wrap-up of it.

Frau Nie Wieder Clinton

...a short timeout.

JMH - the *good* thing is that at present there is never anyone to listen to the speaker in the Senate or the House except the poor pages and the designated person with the gavel who must hope it works off some time in purgatory.

I feel strongly that when someone in Congress speaks, the rest of the band of merry men and women and other-identifying beings should *have* to listen. Speaking to an empty room is stoooooopid.
Unfortunately, at the end of the day, it's who we are as a country.
...ducking and running.

Obamacare imploding just in time for the election is Obama's bad karma coming home to bite him in the butt.
Any legislation rammed through will claim many victims and I hope the people paying higher premiums realize who brought this mess upon them.
Good issue for Trump to elaborate.
Heard him talking about the pledge today.
Doesn't move the ball forward.

Miss Marple 2

Oh, Hillary now is telling us Donald Trump scares children and is a fear-monger because he says without curbing immigration we won't have a country any more.

She says she doesn't even know what that means.

I have to tell you, this is such an annoying speech that I cannot think that she is doing herself any good.

Now she is bringing up the mexican judge thing and accuses TRUMP of sowing racial division.

I am pretty sure those high Hispanic numbers for Trump has them spooked.

Captain Hate

David Kendall is another lowlife trained liar specializing in keeping the crime family from being incarcerated.

Matt is clearly getting all his infor from the Hillary propaganda press, about Trump's stumbles and all that bs.

When did Trump ever express interest in McCrysal? NEVER afaik.

Sad.

The lyin' msm is not where the action is, where the action is explains why his poll numbers are going up.

Frau Nie Wieder Clinton

The polls may be slipping, but it's Chicago Rules from now on in.

There's going to be a serial voter lottery with more to win than in the Mega Lotto.

maryrose

The last time I saw Kendall(Hillary's lawyer)
He looked nervous.
At the very least he should lose his law license
The thought of him with confidential secret information creeps me out.

Captain Hate

cheerleader, I think matt was being sarcastic.

cheerleader

It was the same dynamic during the primaries, so-called well-informed people got all their information from they lyin' msm so they were shocked, shocked when Mr. Trump won.

The msm constantly lies about him, his statements, his acts, and his motives, so it's no wonder the people who read that crap are depressed about him

Here's an idea, why not pay attention to what he is actually saying and doing instead of letting pro-commie sources be your filters, taking little snips out of context to build their lies.

It's really no wonder that the Republicans have been plagued with such pishpoor leadership.

cheerleader

Thanks, Captain Hate,

I do hope that's the case. Sarcasm often doesn't work on the internets, without the smilies to show that it's sarcasm.

Last week, or maybe longer ago, this forum was rejecting my posts, I don't know what that was all about, but it seems to be okay now.

Miss Marple, does Rodham have the usual awkward cadences and raising her voice at strange times? Can you imagine having to coach that unpredictable sot? "God dammit you told me not to cackle and now it's this, that and every other fucking thing to do or not do. Where did all the lamps go?"

Frau Nie Wieder Clinton

OL @ 1:03 - I had to restrain myself from drawing attention to those two words in one sentence.
Thank you for stepping in for me.

Don't let anyone forget that Hillary! really did have a serious brain injury. The country must have a healthy president.

Kendall lose his law license? He is on the short list for Supreme Court along with Jamie Gorelick and LoLy. Janet Napolitano and Donna Shalala (president of the Clinton Foundation) are on the longer list

Do not compare the Tory party of the UK with what we call conservatives. They are more closely related to the Scoop Jackson wing of the old Democrat party. May is closer to a Clintonista than a Cruz or Trump even. She evens accepts some value from Sharia law.

Farage and Hannan are "conservatives" in our vernacular but Hannan is a member of the Tory party for European parliament. In fact, Hannan is more like a Ron Paul conservative.

Looks like you have to go to the UK papers to get an honest take on the mood in the German Street: German teachers boycott leavers' ceremony after Muslim pupil refused to shake hands with female staff

Teachers in Germany have set off a national controversy after they boycotted their own school’s leavers’ ceremony in protest at a Muslim pupil who refused to shake hands with a female member of staff...

“I’m not doing this out of disrespect, but for religious reasons”. (said the Muslim student)...

While the pupil’s original refusal has been the subject of hot debate in Germany, the teachers’ boycott has been widely condemned.

“It also punished the other students who had been looking forward to celebrating finishing school with all their teachers. And did it help?” Heike Klovert wrote in Spiegel magazine.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

How ironic that an unethical, blonde, mendacious Democrat has been banned from her field for two years for gross negligence involving blood tests but the one who through gross negligence exposed vital national secrets to foreign governments got off scot free and is running for president.

daddy

(Harvard professor)Mr. Fryer, who is black, told The New York Times that the finding of no racial discrimination in police shootings was “the most surprising result of my career.”

I would have thought that the “the most surprising result of my career.” might have been the story from last month where the researchers at the "American Journal of Political Science," who did that huge study that "proved" that Conservatives are authoritarian psychotics and Liberals are mentally stable and wonderful people, admitted that they had reversed the data in their huge finding and it was actually Liberals who were the nutcase fascists and Conservatives were the sane folks in America.

EPIC CORRECTION OF THE DECADE

the authors regret that there is an error in the published version of “Correlation not Causation: The Relationship between Personality Traits and Political Ideologies” American Journal of Political Science 56 (1), 34–51. The interpretation of the coding of the political attitude items in the descriptive and preliminary analyses portion of the manuscript was exactly reversed.

Thus, where we indicated that higher scores in Table 1 (page 40) reflect a more conservative response, they actually reflect a more liberal response. Specifically, in the original manuscript, the descriptive analyses report that those higher in Eysenck’s psychoticism are more conservative, but they are actually more liberal; and where the original manuscript reports those higher in neuroticism and social desirability are more liberal, they are, in fact, more conservative.

That should have been the “the most surprising result of my His career.” I'll give him a break though, since as a Liberal he's psychotic:)
