can I truly be first?

First?

Porchlight

Dang it. :) Hi, peter!

jimmyk on iPhone

Peter, CH and I are going to try for a meet up in Manhattan around Thanksgiving. Hope you can join us. Ditto for any other JOMers who will be in the area.

peter

jimmyk, I am definitely interested in a JOM meetup in Manhattan. and Hello, porchy

peter

typepad ate my affirmative answer to your question, jimmyk

peter

and then regurgitated it.

Hey, I did something really satisfying this morning, I unfollowed John Podhoretz and Jim Pethokoukos on twitter.

JIB, That last comment you made on the old thread was great. IMO, you should repeat it on the new thread.

CH posted this on the last thread:

What Rupert and his brats don't realize is libs will always laugh at Faux News and now they've alienated their base of support. Outstanding business plan imo and reminds me of a purported major political party.

This is such a widespread problem, not limited to politics. "Genius" managers look to expand their market, but they ignore, take for granted, or even eventually come to view with contempt, the customers that got them where they were in the first place.

And then they find, as CH notes, that the people they were trying to appeal to don't really like them, and then they have neither a new market, nor their old customers.

The NFL is doing a bang-up job of that right now, but you can see it in countless businesses and fields.

Someone ought to write a book about it :)

TM, that's the boldest prediction yet, namely, that the election will be over tonight. I envision court proceedings at 2 am tomorrow determining whether a Philly precinct can be open for voting until enough out of state voters can be planed, bussed and trained in to overcome Trump's lead in Pennsylvania! At 1am, Obama will have given a statement to the effect that if you're voting in Philly, you're a Pennsylvania resident.

Jack is Back!

jimmyk,

I am in Florida for Thanksgiving. My first return since June of 2015. Mrs. Jib goes back and forth every 2 weeks. Wish you all a great meet up.

We needed a 2nd car here, one that can deal with the winters and the beach in the summer, so we got a 2016 Land Rover in North Miami and I am driving it back while they fly home after Thanksgiving. Stops in Fayetteville and DC area.

Cheers,

Captain Hate

Hey guys, not to get ahead of ourselves but I'm thinking Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, would be the best time. We drive in on Tuesday and Mrs H won't look kindly on my amscraying immediately to go drink with my buds. Thanksgiving is a family day so that is just officially out. Friday might be good but one of those nights I have to go back to a sports bar a couple blocks from my daughter's where I went a year ago just to catch some hoops. The Knicks were on and it was the first time I'd seen
Porzingis so I started talking about him with some AAs at the bar. Before long they asked me where I was from and then started dishing out the (redacted) about how the Cavs would get scorched by the Warriors. I told them they were all (redacted) in the head and that I would have the last laugh. By then the bartender joined in and ended up setting up shots for me in what was a really fun time. So it's mandatory for me to go back there, throw open the door and say "Welp, I'm back, (redacteds)!"

I hope JMH knows how depressed she made me when she posted an old electoral map and California was still a "red state." I feel like so much of the US is following California, sadly.

IBD sticks to their guns and says its again Trump plus 2. Again their sample which is a rolling 4 day sample comes up with more Republicans than Democrats in the actual calls, but again they reweight. Left the Democrat number alone this time removed 34 Republican votes and added 19 Indys. 33 votes out of 1075 is just over 3% of the sample. HMMMM Anyway we will know tonight, here is the IBD sample disclosure for raw and weighted. (They are going with a D + 3.6 % weighting ). Perhaps some pollster herding given they were at + 0 yesterday?

Party identification breakdown:(Unweighted) 361 Democrats/367 Republicans/362 Independents; (Weighted) 361/333/381.

Stocks turn lower after opening flat. I'd love to see the market sharply lower today and tomorrow, as it would mean a) Trump has won, and b) buying opportunity. Wall Street has no interest in the long game, but ultimately Trump is a whole lot better for profits than Hillary.

Porchlight

Good sign, hrtshpdbox.

hrtshpdbox

But Porchlight, I was wrong - it's stock futures that are slightly lower, the market doesn't open for another half hour (I guess I'm still not used to the clocks changing the other day).

Per Pagar's request reposting from previous thread:

Here voting is a privilege, where in Belgium, for example, it is mandatory. Fines and all if you don't. So prayers for all who exercise their right today and for making the wisest choice = Trump. Down ballot is very important especially the Senate.

The real threat is not China, Russia or NoKor but rather a leftist SCOTUS. We need all the votes in Congress and SCOTUS we can muster to Make America Great Again and rid us of the crippling regulations, monetary policy, trade agreements and executive orders that have created this stagnation in both the economy and our confidence.

Now let's get out there and win one for the Gipper!

JPod is an ass and self-inflicted loser who is trying to live up to his father's status and intellect. His failings go beyond movie reviews. He treats his friends as if they were dog poop. And that is if they even complement something he has written.

"Hillarity! once again eluded the short arm of the law..."


No asshole, she didn't skate. Your bullshit investigations simply failed to produce an indictable offence, which is usually what happens when you bullshit your followers into believing that there is an indictable offense to be prosecuted.


Jesus, this is almost as bad as the time you claimed that Valerie Plame WASN'T a covert agent. Remember how you had to hide for months after the C.I.A came out and publicly stated that she did in fact have covert status? How embarrassing was that for you, Tom Maguire....hiding under a rock for months?

[Well, re: Ms. Plame, the subtleties between "classified" status as determined by the CIA and "covert" status as defined by the Intelligence Identities Protection Act were probably too much for DuDa at the time and have certainly escaped his memory now.

In brief, the CIA made clear Ms. Plame had classified status and considered "classified" and "covert" to be synonyms, regardless of the text of the relevant IIPA statute.

Neither Fitzgerald nor anyone else went to court with that claim, so we are left wondering. "We" being people who understand the issue, not the partisan masses. - TM]

Look, Tom, all we want from you is to admit that after 30 years of Bogus Republican investigations, Hillary Clinton has never been found guilty anything.......anything.


Why is that? Is it because the system has conspired to protect her or is it because you guys have FUCKING TRICKED YOUR SUPPORTERS INTO BELIEVING YOU COULD BRING DOWN THE CLINTONS WHEN THE TRUTH IS YOU MADE THE WHOLE THING UP AND YOU NEVER HAD ANYTHING??????????

Tom...man to man...you need to honest with these poor fools who believe everything you say here.......you need to confess that Hillary is guilty of nothing.

If JMH reads this,

You're not going to believe this but I just got a call from my brother to read me a letter from Father Hate to his hometown newspaper from Italy during WW2 giving the folks back home news on what he was doing. I asked him to send me a copy (to the shock of zero people who know him, he doesn't have an email address) but I learned more in that phone conversation than I ever knew before.

PD(eplorable)

I asked Mrs. PD the other day if she knew what the background was for the claim about Trump mocking a disabled reporter, after seeing a Hillary ad playing a few times locally that highlighted it. She looked around and sent me this:

https://www.catholics4trump.com/the-true-story-donald-trump-did-not-mock-a-reporters-disability/

Summary: The story's not quite what our layers-of-fact-checking media has led us to believe. And the Hillary campaign (it's a campaign ad, not a PAC ad), is scum for repeating the story.

Ah, should have voted at 6:30 when the line was only 50 yards down the block. At 9am it was wrapped around the block probably 200 yards. I guess I'll try mid-day. Can't believe people will wait an hour in line to vote for Curb Dive in a deep blue state.

You're right, sorry about that. To make it worse, it's the first pic I've posted here, which is not auspicious (and I can see I need to learn how to resize them as well).

Your bullshit investigations simply failed..

I liked you better the other day when you responded to someone with "Dude, I'm a troll. Let me do my troll thing". Actually, I lol'ed at that line, so thanks.

a FB prayer/comment today on a Trump post -
Suzi Briscoe -
"Father God, we thank you for Mr. Trump. We ask Lord for a hedge of protection around him, his family, and his campaign. We pray that you anoint his steps, and every word from his mouth. Give him strength, clarity, wisdom, and boldness. Expose, strike down and destroy all evil enemies that would attempt to come against him in any way. Bless him, O Lord, and give him VICTORY in all battles that he may face. Father, turn America back to the only living God that has so richly blessed her, and on which this nation was founded. We give you all the praise, glory, and honor in Jesus Holy Name, we pray, Amen!"

Amen.

"Will be"....that's so cute. It's 9.49 in Tampa and I'm lit. Literally...I've already downed an entire pizza. It's almost time for bed.

Look, guys, all we want is an acknowledgement that Hillary Clinton has never been found guilty of anything illegal.


That's a fact.


Somebody admit that so I can catch some zzzzzz's. Soros people need this for some bizarre reason....they want it from the group moderator but fuck it...I need sleep.......someone admit it and I'll go.

The raw sample in IBD is likely Trump + 4 just using their assumptions about % of Republicans captured and the break on Indys.

IBD could have easily weighted to D + 5 or 6. They did not. They are either going to be the Amazing Kreskin, or will have to stop saying they were the most accurate pollster. Here is hoping for Kreskin...

That's the MSM for you,

http://denver.cbslocal.com/2016/11/07/dying-to-vote-cbs4-investigation-finds-woman-charged-with-casting-dead-fathers-ballot/

In a story about voter fraud, they mention "Republican" twice in the first two paragraphs, but it's not until the 15th and final paragraph, that's preceded by 5 photo breaks in the article, where you find out she's a Dem.

Dave (in MA)

Has anyone figured out one way or the other whether this Twitter Foval is the actual donk person of hench?

Porchlight

Short line in my deep blue neighborhood. Good sign.

The Dem candidate for sheriff was greeting people outside. I was friendly and wished her a great day, then happily voted for her Republican opponent. He is the uncle of a classmate of my son's. Big Mexican family that owns the neighborhood taxidermy shop. Enthusiastic hunters (natch) and great people.

Both Mr. Porch and I scrolled back to our Trump votes several times just to see it again/make sure. :)

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

That VDH/Prager exchange daddy posted on the last thread is the most insightful, important thing I've read in some time.

What we have here is not a failure to communicate but a success.
The GOPe and nevertrumpers have successfully communicated that they now openly do not believe in self governance. They will gladly accept our votes and money and they will happily send our kids to foreign countries to get their asses shot off and they will also happily then open our borders to the refugees their foreign misadventures create.
What they won't tolerate is the rabble nominating someone not on their approved guest list and who refuses to be cowed into submission.

The only thing wrong with the interview was both Hanson and Prager used the word "unfortunately" in describing this revelation. On the contrary, the now naked hostility and contempt of our "elite" Quislings is the best result of Trump's rise.
When push came to shove they chose either directly or indirectly the nomenklatura and its anti-Christ of a nominee over we the people.
If you make common cause with my enemy you are my enemy. The GOPe and The nevertrumpers should form their own party and name it The Loyalists and leave the rest of us to fight alone rather than having their anchor chains pinning us down.

Hot Air with sage advice for the inevitable:

Remember this when media outlets begin to report on “early exit poll data,” as they will beginning in the mid-afternoon. Early exit polls are in fact meaningless, because (a) they’re incomplete, and (b) they’re not designed to be a predictive model anyway. Exit polls work best as an explanation of what happened after the votes have been counted, and need to be remodeled based on actual voting data to do so. They give a good snapshot of demographics and trends, especially compared to previous years — which these exclusions will make a little less reliable, by the way — but not as a running total of who’s winning the race at every hour. Even the demos when first released will only be rough estimates, so unless the gaps are yuuuuuuge when the polls close, it’s not safe to draw absolute conclusions from them. Besides, the count of the actual ballots will only be an hour or two away, so why jump the gun with incomplete and indirect data when direct data will arrive soon enough?

clarice b. for Brainiac

pagar, what is VI F? What is the source of that quote?

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

And I will gladly acknowledge for Weedavey that Hillary has never been convicted of a crime and probably never will be.

We are rapidly approaching that state of affairs where the honor is being a zek hounded for thoughts inimical to the state and the shame is being one of the criminally immune nomenklatura.

Of course the lowest, slimiest, most vile creatures in such a state are the toady zeks who carry water for the elite against their fellow kulaks in hopes of a few wee crumbs from the table of the rulers.
Perhaps Weedavey should change his name to Richard Rich.

Buckeye and daddy,

The coroner was my AME for 20+ yrs. His daughter was my instrument instructor, who went on to drive DC-8s for ABEX for a couple decades and then got her PhD in aviation safety.
