Primo!

I forget the details, but didn't some Dem politician say that some Republican proposal would cost 300 million American jobs or something like that? They just make up numbers.

daddy

are the editors here even reading the text? The odds are excellent that Bernie said 'Two point five million', which would be half of the 5 million total votes (later I will link to a You-Tube instructional video on boiling water for tea.) From which it follows - strap in for the high priced math!

Roll with it, TM. Hell, CNBC Thinks Terry McAuliffe is a Republican, so expecting 2 + 2 to not equal 250 Million is asking a bit much of the MSMer's.

Me neither.

Miss Marple,

Hold off a while on buying a new house down there and consider moving to Alaska. Pretty soon they're going to be giving houses away up here: BP (British Petroleum) to put Alaska headquarters up for sale

The global energy giant, one of Alaska's big three oil companies, is exploring similar deals for a number of offices in the rest of the U.S and the United Kingdom as it struggles to rein in seven straight year-on-year quarters of plunging earnings. The readjustments to its real estate assets are happening in concert with large layoffs worldwide, including hundreds of job cuts in Alaska and pullbacks in project spending.

Miss Marple

Daddy,

My daughter will be the buyer. I cannot get a mortgage due to to having my name on this one plus having not enough income. Otherwise, I would be there in a flash!

Had on Hannity on the. radio but am turning it off. Too many whining callers.

Have to go to work so haven't caught up today, but wanted to say that yesterday on Hour 1 Dennis Prager had an excellent discussion of interacting with his very good friends over the weekend, Bret Stephens and Jonah Goldberg, who are "NeverTrumpers. Dennis on the show mentioned how the conversations were so informative that they caused him to generate todays column: A Response to My Conservative #NeverTrump Friends

Yay, Dennis!

Kudos to Dennis for writing it, and kudos to National Review for printing it.

With Kasich now saying it'll really hard to endorse Trump how big of a house are we going to have to build in order to have JamesD's cleansing fire?

WTF is wrong with these people?

a local newspaper has published the most unbelievable statement I have ever read:

Sen. Reid has called for Alan Grayson to quit the race for the Senate saying Alan Grayson has no moral compass. Sen Reid has sent years making sure that his political party never lets anything get in the way of allowing the killing of millions of inconvenient unborn children. A Democrat with A MORAL COMPASS? Got to be kidding!

Gentlejim,

Kasich probably was being all nicey-nice thinking he would get the VP slot.

Now his true colors are showing.

I hope Trump gets the delegates needed before the convention. Then he can tall all these yahoos to go pound sand.

MM,
Every day I find out that I was incorrect thinking that my opinion of politicians couldn't get lower.

"go pound sand" That's a phrase I enjoy and use on occasion, which is appropriate due to my proximity to the dunes(the singing sands).

Miss Marple 2

Gentlejim,

I am thinking that we need a requirement that anyone running for Representative, Senator, or President must have demonstrated some competence in the private sector or the military.

I am tired of these people who have never done anything but run for office.

What should worry Democrats most is Trump’s gain with millennial voters.

Trump is now in a virtual dead heat with Hillary with voters 18-29 years old.

That’s a 36 point swing in one month!

In March, Clinton led Trump among under-30s by 39 percentage points, 64-25 percent. Today they split 45-42 percent. It’s a group Barack Obama won by 23 points in 2012, and one that Clinton needs back.

All of a sudden all this truth is coming out.
WRT McCauliffe,Clinton Foundation( still much to mine there) and the selling of the very bad Iran deal
What a complete screw up Obama is.
Instead of letting Lois Lerner get punished we are still talking about the IarS three years later.
Hillary continues to lie about her lies and looks awful as a presidential candidate.
In the short run it works for them but in the long run it makes them losers.

npr-admits-it-did-cancel-interviews-with-iran-deal-critic/

With Ben Rhodes telling us how he/the Obama administration & the MFM played America...I would love it if a reporter (one reporter?, any reporter?, HELLO??) would look back on the roll out of other agenda items of this administration.

What was the coordination between the Obama administration + advocacy organizations + the media with other agenda items? What "news" organizations ran stories as battleground prep to help the administration?

It seems like, since Ben was willing to say how the game was played with the Iran deal,....we should be able to SEE & SHOW other Americans how they are played by the sycophantic MFM.

The McAwful investigation is still puzzling. An investigation of this nature - especially D on D - doesn't just happen, does it? I don't think so. So what's the angle? What's the endgame? I'd suggest that it's not as simple as messing with McAwful.

BoE - This was at Am. Thinker today

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2016/05/fbi_investigation_of_mcauliffe_leaked_why.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=facebook

"Now who might those “US officials briefed on the probe” be? People with political motives to leak this news. Four basic alternatives suggest themselves:

*Someone who wants to damage the Hillary Clinton campaign and is anxious to open a new front in the public controversies over her political machine, including the Clinton Foundation.
*Someone anxious to demonstrate that the ongoing FBI probe is serious, and that the Justice Department will not take a dive on pursuing the issues beyond the negligent handling of classified material.
*Someone who wants to crate pressure on the Justice Department to act on whatever FBI referrals may be coming.
*Someone wants to warn McAuliffe and his associates that they are under scrutiny.

None of these alternatives is good news for the Clinton Machine."

Virginia's governorship is only one term. McCauliffe is out at the end of his term.

I posted this here before & I posted it on FB...but this is an example (to me) of the Obama administration + the MFM setting up the battleground for gun control legislation back in 2010.

"With the recent Ben Rhodes admission of manipulating the media for the Iran deal, it would be interesting to go back & look at the media PUSH for gun control preceding F&F blowing up when Brian Terry was killed.
I know the WaPo had geared up & was running stories on our lax gun control laws helping the drug cartels.

Terry was shot on Dec. 14th & died Dec 15th. 2010

Wouldn't you love to question some reporters on why they covered the stories they did. Did outside sources suggest it? Did govt. or advocacy groups pave the way for the story? Who contacted Grimaldi, Horwitz, Crites &/or Booth?"

I'll be interested to see if she does turn the Bern, if this investigation goes away, JCB. And in this continuing stream, it can't be a coincidence that this is someone in the Team Clinton inner circle, and so, how did Obama find a clue about this alleged transgression - it wasn't happenstance.

That said, if any of us 'civilians' ever learned of the true web and misdealings of these politicos, it would be too absurd for a B-movie plot.

There's just so much power and so much money concentrated in DC, Miss Marple. Even decent people can be corrupted by that alure. Cut the budget and return the power and money to the states.

B of E --

You are right about too much power and money in DC. On an earlier thread someone noted that the Earned Income Tax Credit program has been ripped off for 15+ BILLION dollars. I semi jokingly said that in DC that's just a pittance.

Some people pointed out all the wonderful things that could be done with the money -- health care, scientific research, etc. but to me, that is exactly the wrong way to look at it. It's the way Democrats look at government money -- thinking about all the good things (in their case, hiring bureaucrats) that could be done with it.

As you say, we need the money to go back to the taxpayers. Or, in the moment, used to pay down debt, which is close to the same thing.
