Guess Hillary wasn't a big help to Kimmel's

“Kimmel’s 0.4 rating with Clinton lost to a Nick At Nite rerun of ‘Friends’ — a program that went off the air more than a decade ago — and ‘Teen Mom Season 6’ on MTV,” The Hill reported.

Trump has taught Pence a few things. Indianapolis Star reporter at Trump office opening complains. HA!

It's trus Pence never used to do that. Instead, he followed the Rovian "do not complain" method which has worked well for so many tomato cans.

This is a new Mike Pence. Glad to see it!


Why shouldn't they get deported. They are here illegally. This whole thing smacks of camels nose under the tent. It used to be unacceptable to say you would not enforce immigration laws, now it is unacceptable to say you will. If you don't deport than that is de facto open borders. Oh...and anyone remember how we were prooomised that immigration would be harshly enforced after the 1980s amnesty? What a crock.


I love this standing up to the enemy demeaner! The arrogant little pressies are not used to this. It's good for them - maybe they'll actually have to dig around for a story and learn why Trump has so much support.

Thomas Collins

Sure. Mixed signals.

GHWB: No new taxes.

Barry Obama: I'm against individual mandate. If you like your doc, you can keep your doc.

The Hill: For pacific trade deal before she was against it.

Kerry: For the Iraq war before being against it.

Trump is recognizing the reality that we are not going to deport 11 million illegals. Trump is going to focus on the security threats and the garden variety violent criminals. I have more confidence in Trump following through on this than The Hill.

Speaking of evolving positions: Yoga classes and recipes on the missing emails appear to have evolved into government business.


First, the murdering, raping, thieving illegals that Obama has dumped into our communities get deported or imprisoned, then the Big Searchlight focuses on the less dangerous lawbreakers and applies to them the immigration laws on the books that have been ignored. After that, long-time in-country illegals living quietly, who have not otherwise broken civil laws will be dealt with.

Isn't that the Trump game plan?


I like that plan.

Heh, let me.

It's a marvelous idea to deport bad-acting illegals, but who determines 'bad'?


I forgot to include the "terrorist" illegals....they go first, too. IF we can find them. :(



Trump eviscerated candidates who advocated his new position. Rubio became the representative for the evil, vile Uniparty, for advocating Trump's new position. What's the point of Trump now, if it isn't a harsh position of immigration?


Define his new position, Appalled. With sources.


Flashing back to the "bitter clingers" comment:

"They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

Then, in response, Hillary:

"I was taken aback by the demeaning remarks Senator Obama made about people in small-town America. His remarks are elitist and out of touch."

Flash forward.

Her PUBLIC speech yesterday about Trump's racist supporters was twenty times worse than what Obama said at a private fundraiser. Or what Romney said about the 47% at a private fundraiser.

Was anyone else in the field going to build a wall? No.

That right there is the difference. It doesn't matter what you do with deporting if they can sneak back over the border.

Was anyone else going to end sanctuary cities? No. Trump said it last night.

Sounds like Hillary's speech backfired. What's funny to me is that everyone in the MSM is trying to shame people who go to Breitbart and InfoWars, but no one pays any attention.

I mean, it's not like I really am going to cower in the corner because the New York Times doesn't approve of some of the web sites I visit.

Also, when is someone going to point out that the Southern Poverty Law Center is a scam and a partisan group?

Thomas Collins

The point for me, Appalled, is that I have more confidence that Trump sees immigration enforcement as a national security issue than The Hill. Yes, Trump, who started with virtually no support within the party, said some attention grabbing things in the primary. He has backed off his position on deporting all illegals to focusing on the most dangerous. I don't see that as a problem. As far as Rubio and Bush go, I don't believe they would have been as aggressive against dangerous illegals within the country as Trump will be if he wins. And they could have fought harder against Trump's attacks in the primaries.


Half a picnic pork braised in sauteed onions and apple cider. When the pork is absolutely tender after about four hours pull it apart and add some barbecue sauce and let it simmer a bit more. Good idea as the HEM did a home depot run.

Meanwhile peel and slice russet potatoes and put on baking sheet with buttered aluminum foil. Do one layer so it is still sealable horizontally and vertically and then grate romano cheese after using seasoning salt and then small pieces of butter. Do two or 3 layers depending on people and whether one is a HEM. Seal tightly and bake at least 40 minutes. Be careful opening.

BREAKING: State Department won't provide before Election Day all Clinton schedules of her meetings as secretary of state.

Thomas Collins

The press is more concerned with Trump moderating his position on illegals than it was when Obama spewed forth his red line blather in Syria and then did the old el foldero.

In any event, I am sure the press will get around to a searching inquiry on The Hill's "evolution" on trade agreements. I'm sure that the press's sudden concern that some of Trump's supporters might be disheartened with his new position on illegals has nothing to do with a consistent pattern of shameless attempts to undercut Trump and boost The Hill up the stairs to the White House.


Live Action Saturday morning

Or "real action," as my 6yo son calls it. :)

buccaneer morgan

surprise, surprise,


Has it been determined what Trump told the NYT's off the record yet? Wasn't it, "Everything's Negotiable?"

From what I gathered from him on Hannity last night was that those families that have been here 15-20 years crime free, (except for the fact they broke the law to get here) would be sent back, but first to get back in through the proper channels. If that's the case I could live with that.

Vindicating what those of us who were calling it Operation Change The Subject were saying all along...

Still seems a little too vast, Dave. Kinda like this scenario:

Apr 27, 2011: Obama releases an online image of a 9 layer birth certificate to stave off a televised 9th circuit hearing on his eligibility but the court and the plaintiffs dont bite. The hearing will go as planned on May 2, 2011.

May 1, 2011: Obama single handedly kills OBL and the media throws a parade.

Ma 2, 2011: The OBL subject change is deemed a success and no networks broadcast the eligibility hearing.

See how far fetched it sounds?


Appalled: What's the point of Trump now, if it isn't a harsh position of immigration?

First of all, none of the others are plausible now, if they ever were.

Second, Trump’s position is harsh only in your mind, not mine.

Third, You are playing hypothetical word games instead of working in the real world, and it comes across as sour grape carping.

Fourth, it is tiresome to play such silly reindeer games.

Other than that, have a nice night.

That Daily Caller article is stupid. What's all the hinting around about?
If Gowdy has something SAY IT.

"“You’ll never guess what term the FBI used when they described Sidney Blumenthal and his relationship to her,” the Republican told Kelly."

What the hell is that? SAY IT.
Give us NEWS or get off the TV. If the FBI doesn't want you to say...well DO IT ANYWAY. That's what the Dems do.

Or if it is really big, get on the TV & start screaming that the FBI has to release this info.

The dinking around is just too frustrating & stupid.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--What's the point of Trump now, if it isn't a harsh position of immigration?--

The point of Trump and every other Rep candidate was and is, first and foremost, to defeat Smaug.

Some of them are quite bright. The problem is they are an emasculated bunch of candy-assed, chicken hearted poltroons.

I can't. It is easier for me to accept that they are all crooks. Crooks that were bright enough to stay in power for a lot longer than one might accept from a bunch of dim bulbs.

does this sound true, of course hawks had to down play a subplot that was too risque for 1946.


WHY HOW Did The Chicken Cross The ROAD GLOBE?


We just watched the Hank Williams biopic "I Saw The Light". Hank nicely played by Tom Hiddleston, T-swizzle's ex my daughter tells me. I'm not sure if he did the singing. What a sad story.

Trump's immigration plan hasn't changed from what I've heard. Everybody gets their day in court. A Federal Judge decides who is deported, not the President.

I sure hope some enterprising young patriot sneaks a strobe light in to the first debate. Then we'll see what condition clots condition is in.


John Schindler:

Nevertheless, I had hopes that, eventually, professional handlers would get a hold of Trump and moderate his rough edges. Once he secured the GOP nomination a more focused Trump — one not needing to respond to every imagined slight with an incendiary tweet — had to arrive. Surely if he expected to be competitive in the general election, Trump knew he would have to refocus, stop pandering to his narrow but fervent base, and start talking like, well….a president.

Alas, I was wrong. Wise friends of mine like Tom Nichols and Rick Wilson were right all along. There is no better Trump. There is no responsible Trump. There is no balanced Trump. There is no presidential Trump. There is only Trump.

Glenn Reynolds, in response:

Well, 70-year-old men don’t change much. And it’s worked pretty well for him so far.

* * * * *

What is it about these people that makes them undersell Trump so much? Why can't they, in the face of this revolt, look in the mirror and contemplate . . . There is no better Rick Wilson. There is no responsible Rick Wilson. There is no balanced Rick Wilson. There is no man-of-the-people Rick Wilson. There is only Rick Wilson.

The pontificating about DJT is really making me that much more fond of Donald Trump.
