Miss Marple 2

clarice,

That speech Trump gave today was absolutely wonderful. I have wanted for YEARS for someone to revive the idea of the melting pot, Americans as a people, regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity.

I pray he can win and set us on that course.

Lurker Susie

MM,

His whole Twitter feed, other than propping himself up
is negative statements about Trump.

What a stupid jackass!

Miss Marple 2

Oh, Lurker Susie, Brit Hume said he was a "credible alternative" for people who didn't like Hillary or Trump.

So I unfollowed Brit Hume, whom I thought had a lick of common sense. I don't have time to waste with people who treat me like I am a moron.

The guy has enough crap in his background to fill several conspiracy theories. He's a Romney puppet, plain and simple.

GUS

I've heard this Mayor McCheese wannabee interviewed, and he is a couple McNuggets short of a 4 pack. It's bizarre. If he's Romney's guy, then Romney has some STAKE in the game.

Gus,

It's just amazing to me how contemptuous these people are of the voters.

Apparently they think they can maneuver things to deny Trump the votes in the electoral college.

Gee, that wouldn't cause massive national uprisings, would it? Can you imagine? Millions of people go to vote and this dweeb gets Utah and maybe one other state and so the whole thing goes tot he House, where they decide to put in someone else, Hillary or whoever they choose.

You think those Bikers for Trump would put up with that? They would be on their way to DC in a heartbeat, along with thousands of PO'd coal miners, factory guys, and others.

I consider this not only unseemly plotting but irresponsible behavior, because if their desires come to pass, there will be blood.

Spook???? Eligibility???? Oh dear TK.

Now Dargey’s alleged diversion of funds jeopardizes the permanent-residency applications of some 250 Chinese families, who invested $500,000 each to become eligible for a fast-track green card. It also leaves his projects in limbo.

As one of the SEC’s largest EB-5 fraud cases filed to date, Dargey may become a talking point as Congress this fall debates reforming the visa program, which will expire if not extended.

“The kiss of death is, try to run before you can walk,” said Lanie McMullin, director of economic development for the city of Everett, which helped Dargey launch his career in EB-5. “Because of the nature of EB-5, where lots of money comes in fast for projects, it’d be really hard to monitor your growth rate in a wise and thoughtful way.

“Here was a good, young starting developer who just had too much too fast.”

I shouldn't have to be worrying the Mormon majority may be 'asked' by church leadership to vote for this spoiler. If McMuffin wins Utah, I will consider the voting public a bunch of programmed robots (sheep are smarter) and consider moving out of Utah. We are ready for retirement, anyway.

Well, as I said a few days ago, the Mormons have worked for decades to get accepted into the mainstream of the country.

If this is the doing of Romney, Beck and others, they will have set that back 100 years.

>>>Before I stopped listening to him, Levin stated that Trump was arguing the same type of trade warfare that produced the depression. How accurate that is I don't know and would think that Trump, as an executive, would delegate such decisions to experts who would use history as a guide.

Posted by: Captain Hate | August 15, 2016 at 01:19 PM<<<

I joined the club and stopped listening to Levin. Just can't deal with the screaming-THAT'S RIGHT, I SAID IT. On the point of trade, I think Smoot-Hawley is too narrow a focus for what happened in the late 20s and 30s. Global trade was already collapsing because of WW1 and its aftermath and the rise of Marxist revolutions around the globe. The US had the world's largest horde of gold just prior to the crash. We also had an extraordinary property bubble and a dominant global trade position. Little good it did us.

GUS

Rich: there were also quite a few economic downturns in he 19th century, and there was plenty of world wide protectionism.

Justifying today's globalism by scaremongering about Smoot-Hawley is wearing pretty thin.

Nobody back then were moving whole factories overseas.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Smoot Hawley was damaging but that is hardly an argument for today's gargantuan crony trade agreements of thousands and thousands of pages.
Free trade is simple and requires a half dozen pages. Regulation, mischief, favoritism and criminality hide in thousands of them.

>>>Is it a simple majority vote in the House?

Posted by: Buckeye | August 15, 2016 at 08:44 PM<<<

majority of state delegations. ie the State of Calaifornia delegation gets 1 vote; the State Delegation of Wyoming gets 1 vote &c &c. however the choices would be Trump, Clinton, and Jonson(?) ... not sure how that would help Mcguffin - whatever that dude's name is.

GUS

TRUMP.. AMERICAN BUSINESSMAN, big ego, TONS OF SUCCESS, but goofy.
RODHAM... Disgusting pig, I'd call her a whore, but that would be a compliment.
Johnson. SILLY LITTLE MAN, no depth, no success, POT is his ISSUE.
McMullen. DOUCHE BAG of EPIC PROPORTIONS.

The AMERICAN PUBLIC has been DUMBED DOWN beyond belief. Calling the ELECTORATE dumbed down, is not even close to the TRUTH.

Mcguffin - whatever that dude's name is.

I like McGuffin (def): an object, event, or character in a story that serves to set and keep the plot in motion despite usually lacking intrinsic importance.

That seems a pretty good description of the guy from Utah.

GUS

Milwaukee's Police Chief ...Ed Flynn...(whom I know), was quoted as saying......
((This was, quite frankly, unanticipated," Chief Edward Flynn said Monday))
Ed Flynn is Mayor Tom Barrett's hand picked LIBTARD soft cop. Mr/Chief Flynn, was Police Chief of Arlington Virginia, and is also a a VETERAN of Massachusettes law enforcement.
He has NO TIES to Milwaukee other than a WELL KNOWN affair with a local media personality....JESSICA McBride, whose THEN husband was Waukesha County's District Attorney.

The US electoral process has gone kinda mad.
The sad and frightening thing is Trump is the least cuckoo, most honest, most sensible one of the bunch.

Ignatz, that is scary. Trump has a record of ACCOMPLISHMENT. Rodham picked a fight about TRUMP TIES being manufactured in CHINA.

WZ has one of the leaked articles from the anti-American party up claiming some of their candidates are too pro-police/too anti blm. How can any American vote for a member of a political party that Is anti-police.

James D

Yeah, THIS is a good idea...

http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/08/16/london-mayor-to-set-up-police-online-hate-crime-hub-in-partnership-with-social-media-firms/

Because they don't have any concerns about terrorism, or organized sex assault rings, or even plain old crimes like robbery and murder, right? They have all this free time and manpower and extra money to search out "hate speech" on Facebook and Twitter.

James D

As part of that ant-hate speech law, there's this provision:

The law criminalises “using [a] public electronic communications network in order to cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety,” and can result in a six-month prison term or fine of up to £5,000.

Well, Barack Obama regularly uses public electronic communications, and causes annoyance, inconvenience and needless anxiety. Can we prosecute him?

I think Janet should get an article in USA Today. Or get one of those guys from Carrier, or a coal miner. All of their opinions would be more valid.

Clarice,On FB, regarding Charles Glasser's comment to Tom Lipscomb instead of ranting on Facebook, why not write a nice, calm, and convincing letter to Tom Kent, their Standards Editor?

If I could have posted a reply to Glasser that Lipscomb could see, it would have been:

"I should have thought that regular, often weekly, detailed and documented emails to AP editors, phone calls, and previous personal meetings in New York would have been sufficient."

As AP is wont to say to members, "After all, you own us."

Janet @ 9:36

If I were the RNC (or Trump, for that matter), I'd run an ad with an Obama sound-alike reading one of those emails or documents - this bit in particular:

In Florida’s 10th district, for example, where four Democrats are vying to replace Republican Rep. Daniel Webster, the DCCC papers single out one candidate: Bob Poe, who the documents note could be viewed as “anti-black lives matter/pro-police” and as “too conservative among other progressive Democrats.”

I'd have the voice speaking over scenes of riots, smashed windows, businesses burning, etc.

And then I'd end it with "These views brought to you by the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton."

"re-elected" should be "elected".
