Clarice,

I think so too.

It's slate enough that President Trump has probably already tweeted. I am going to go check.

Miss Marple (the real one)

So far, the President has re-tweeted 4 people. 3 of the re-tweets I posted here yesterday. If you want to take a look, here is his timeline:

Watching @BarackObama take credit for @realDonaldTrump successes is disgraceful.

Score So Far-

TRUMP:
-Unemployment Rate
-GDP
-Wage Growth
-# Blacks Employed
-# Hispanics Employed
-# Women Employed
-ISIS Wins
-Homegrown Terror Events

OBAMA:
-Slick Speaking

finally admitted to her that she had the ability to out argue me, because she was illogical and wouldn't listen to facts.

Went downhill from there. I didn't mind her thoughts, but her inability to convert me to her thinking drove her crazy.

There are a lot of people who tie their sense of self worth in supporting the JEF. They believe that liking him, no matter what a lowlife lying piece of shit he is, makes them good people and opposing him makes others bad people. This sick way of emotional non thinking has been promulgated by the MFM which is why DJT's attacks on those propagandists have to continue because I don't think any other Republican would directly address this. Maybe Ted Cruz would but it would surely be different and less effective, plus there's the whole problematic getting elected thing. Ted's fine right where he is, at least for now, and I'm glad he's put his understandable hurt feelings from the campaign aside and is actively supporting the most conservative President since Reagan.

MM, Brickyard 400 used to be last weekend in July, then bumped to first weekend in August.

Brickyard attendance has been suffering (a generic problem across all motor sports), and this year Brickyard was moved to September to try and improve it. (Though they’re opposite the Colts game this year, so it didn’t work out so well).

MM, yep. It’s one of the reasons we stopped going.

We were coming from hundreds of miles away. To spend $1000+ on race tickets, hotels, meals, gas etc. and have it rained out sucked hard. Way easier and cheaper to watch at home in glorious HD. The experience of being there is more fun than TV, but ceased being worth the cost and occasional aggravation.

People here sometimes refer to the oldest socialist on SCOTUS as Ruth Buzzi. I actually follow the real Ruth Buzzi on twitter. She is still extremely funny. She's retired now, but posts regularly. She grew up in Wiquidiquok, (sp.?) CT (near New London) and in fact, her father, Angelo Buzzi, was a well known stone carver. Her uncle owned a grave marker company called Buzzi memorial which is still in business in Pawcatuck. Ruth Buzzi even enjoys when people call RBG Ruth Buzzi.

Old Lurker

JiB "BTW, through the political grapevine, I am hearing nervous speculation on keeping the house. DJT better have a plan."

That speculation will continue and accelerate up to and past the actual election. Trump has a plan which will work or he doesn't, and the rest of his presidency hangs on the outcome.

No double backflip parsing at this stage is going to give us here any peace until we know.

The personal is political has done more to ruin civic and personal life than anything else.
It's the logical extension of an ideology vs a philosophy. A philosophy says I believe this because. An ideology says I am this because.
That's why disagreeing with a prog is always a personal insult. And of course they project their own identity problems and pathologies onto everyone else.

Trump is vile, dishonest and corrupt. He is stoking a cold civil war in our land. He is assailing our institutions, traditions, alliances and is a party to the global regression of democracy. He is incompetent and mentally unfit. This is a national emergency.

=========================

There are several tweets hooked together in a thread, but when I look at them all I got to thinking if this guy knows more about what McCain was up to and his contacts than we suspected. I also wonder if he got some money from foreign sources.

The level of hysteria and bile in his tweets, along with some of the other Never Trump people, is off the charts. It doesn't make sense in the rational world, unless there is a motive we haven't spotted.

maryrose

Iggy:
Very insightful post.

Miss Marple (the real one)

Iggy,

I doubt my democrat sister calls me for a while. She believes that because I support Trump I have lost my mind. It's her only explanation.

I didn't even tell her that one of her best customers when she still managed at Macy's counts on me to give her text updates on what's going on while she's at work, because she's every bit as big a supporter as I am.

You are quite right in that she sees her dem party membership and support as being part of her identity.

----peter

I heard Steve Schmidt on MSLSD the other day. (I listen in my car on my commute home to stay awake.) He was trashing Sarah Palin. To call him an asshat is an insult to asshats all around the world.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--Trump has a plan which will work or he doesn't, and the rest of his presidency hangs on the outcome.--

How bout the rest of us have a plan? I understand top-down politics from prog-bots but why us?

And I reiterate my belief that even if the Dems take the house they will not hold it and Trump will have plenty of opportunity to continue his agenda.
Clinton had plenty of political life after being impeached and the present Dems are far more repulsive than Clintons adversaries and are utterly unhinged.

Barring some unforseen catastrophe he has an opportunity to make America great again just by dominating the SCOTUS for decades to come.

Their 3 prong discredit the President effort this week has failed miserably.

Quid Pro Quo

Before Brett Kavanaugh was a liar, he really didn't care much for them. As former Judiciary Committee staffer Lisa Graves writes in a scathing takedown of his participation and use in the theft of thousands of emails during the Bush years, Kavanaugh hated lies before he didn't.

Significantly, he did so even though a few years earlier he had helped spearhead the impeachment of President Bill Clinton for perjury in a private civil case. Back then Kavanaugh took lying under oath so seriously that he was determined to do everything he could to help remove a president from office.

maryrose,

I do, too, but it MUST be something that is undeniably bad and has irrefutable evidence.

A lot of this stuff is bad and incriminating only if you understand the ins and outs of politica and government.

Examples of what I am talking about would be the following:

Clintons profiting from child trafficking, with emails to those participating.

Clinton Foundation strong-arming governments for money under threat of military attack.

Obama ordering the hit on Seth Rich.

Feinstein deliberately transferring military secrets to China.

Brennan actively coordinating the Russia hoax and filing reports with Obama and Clinton.

You see what I mean?

Trump does have a plan. He’s doing a ton of rallies. And there have been reports that his voter reach program is now four times what it was in 2016. His plan is to get as many of the 63 million—many of whom were new voters and traditional Dems—who voted for him to turn out and vote Republican. He’s doing what he did in 2016–targeting the races.

As for the Deep State coup reveal—that seems to be on a timetable that he may not have complete control over. Especially if It’s true that he can’t unilaterally declassify.

More Crave Hypocrites

Yesterday the Daily Mail showed footage of Corbyn addressing the conference, on the topic of British Zionists. He mentions an impassioned speech made at a meeting in parliament about the history of Palestine that was “dutifully recorded by the thankfully silent Zionists who were in the audience” (audience members he presumably knew nothing about). So far so bad. But it gets worse. He goes on to say that these unnamed Zionists in the audience “clearly have two problems. One is they don’t want to study history, and secondly, having lived in this country for a very long time, probably all their lives, they don’t understand English irony either … So I think they needed two lessons, which we can perhaps help them with.”

The Labour Party is purging any and all pro-Israel members now. They are looking more and more like the NSDAP every day.

Derwill, what is amazing is that these fools still have not caught on to how brilliant Trump has been in his strategy. He out hustled Hillary and outstrategized her, and he may be doing the same again.

He took the election fair and square and he may be the difference in this one. To be sure, the Senate majority will be stable or will grow. As to the House we will see.

Mr. Hanky is speaking at the Anaheim Convention Center today to fire up his believers, but I think if the Repubs air that new commercial in heavy rotation the stakes will be clarified and Mr. Hankey gets flushed.

All of the vitriol this week as a nothingburger, again. And now it would seem the dark clouds are gathering over the Establishment. It has crossed over into sedition and people are waking up.

The anger and pique at McCain's funeral really clarified who they are and most people on't like them very much to begin with.

I want you to know how badly I wish to be a JOM boot kicker so listen to my passively-aggressive rant...please.

The Democrats have made this hearing ridiculous. Booker as Spartacus. Harris as Hamilton Burger. The temptation to mock the whole amped up idiocy has really got to be powerful, and it may have got the better of this woman. She is already got a starring role in lefty fever swamp-dom.

What’s the legal basis for his special-counsel investigation? We have a right to know.
For precisely what federal crimes is the president of the United States under investigation by a special counsel appointed by the Justice Department?

It is intolerable that, after more than two years of digging — the 16-month Mueller probe having been preceded by the blatantly suspect labors of the Obama Justice Department and FBI — we still do not have an answer to that simple question.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein owes us an answer.

One of the things Trump knows how to do is how to reach an audience. He’s been doing it his entire life and he’s a master at it. When he said he fell asleep during Obama’s speech the MSM naturally assumed he was just being snarky, but what it really was was a dig at Obama by stating what he he perceived to be the truth: Obama had failed to reach his audience.

I don’t think the Dems would have trotted out Obama if they weren’t worried. It crossed a line (one Obama himself acknowledged in his speech) that wouldn’t have been necessary if their internals showed as big a blue wave as they’ve been bloviating about.

Like I said yesterday—watch what they do, not what they say.

Kevlar Kid

going nuclear on the cabal would spare us any further stress. got it.

however, the strength of this President shows in his capacity to win BATTLES.

the mid-terms show every sign of a superior ground game (something the Dhims said DJT dint have in the 2016 victory). and there is a strong likelihood of a solid victory in November.

THAT will be huge for obvious reasons. there is one reason i can think of that will have profound value: DJT is winning where it counts--- in the voting booth. He will have taken the "fix" and turned it on its head, in effect, and given elections back to the people.

imo, the nation will experience sunrise the morning after in a very different way. watch the "thumbs down" rate increase to a national uproar re Mueller et alia.
