--JNC: “Probably aimed at me.”

Nah, I’m pretty sure that was aimed elsewhere.--

It was aimed at TK.

A "party of Science" that thinks food comes from grocery stores. That electricity doesn't require mining or drilling (yes, solar cells and batteries require mining those nasty rare earth elements). That gender sex comes in more flavor than ice cream.

Maybe they should come out to a dairy farm and milk some bulls.

I love the talking points that the suburban moms were so appalled by Trump's abrasive and boorish behavior that they decided to vote for the democrats. If anything they would have sat out the election rather than vote for the dems . What exactly was Trump doing that these non political actors would sign up for the resistance.

Dave Seville

I'm not sure what Trump was supposed to do.
Hire retired spec ops guys to go down and put the bag on any Dem counting phony ballots?
Have Mattis mow them down in the streets?
As appealing as that is, the way it works is the Dems come up with phony ballots and try to bend the rules and the Rep observers and workers keep an eye on it and the Reps sue and take it all to court.
These events always occur in blue hells in which progs hold all the cards and short of martial law the only to fight it is observationally and legally.
We have no way of knowing who was on the ground when and where, but I find it unlikely a guy as prepared as Trump didn't have things mobilized.

When even Porch has flipped her lid on Trump being to blame for something that he probably had covered to the extent he could and will probably not amount to a hill of beans anyway, I think I better join CH and hit the trail.

Before I go, this was inevitable;
Dutch dude wants the government to change his birth certificate to show he's forty nine not sixty nine so he can get more dates on Tinder.
If a dude can whack the peepee he was born with and join the girls track team then why shouldn't this dude be able to whack the date he was born on and identify as a youngster?

henry

Socialists first attack the farmers. See USSR, and modern Venezuela, with South Africa an in process bonus. Then the food supply collapses (Duh) and only the elite cadre and their chosen few get the food from those capitalists in the US. The true stupidity of the socialists here is that when the kill US farms, there is no country that produces a surplus to feed the cadre.

For some reason, I feel that this theater is part of foreig policy issues and who can withstand ongoing crisis more, Us versus the rest of the world. Obama and the globalists were willing to sell US short and China and Islamism would become dominating powers. Trump is trying to change course and it is question of who blinks or collapses first. Do not for one minute think that China and Iran were not underwriting the democrats war chest.

I am amazed at how these people think rural people should be disenfranchised.

I think most of them would rather that the rural people (and white people, particularly men, generally) die off entirely.

There is no shortage of progressives who will openly and proudly say it. We ought to take them at their word.

James D.

even better, let's just get rid of elections too and appoint an enlightened dictatorship like they have in China.

Ah, the Tom Friedman approach.

James D.

Wonderful news, Stephanie!!!

The Dems always try to steal elections. Always. And most times they get away with it. What scares me the most this time around is that FL and AZ should never have been close to steal. That woman in AZ has been blatantly anti-American and disdainful of Arizona, and has done so on the record. There were videos for God’s sakes. Why would anyone—including registered Dems— vote for someone who openly and gleefully despises them.

The leaders in the Dem party hate and disdain all of us—even their own voters, and especially the blacks and Jews. They’ve been openly exposing their hatred for years. Why we can’t exploit that us beyond me.

rich

great news stephanie.

Stephanie, Nene, Not your Normal Grandma

Is it possible that democrats are intentionally mishandling cities like SF, LA, Atlanta, Houston forcing their voters out to the red suburbs with the immigrant hordes coming in behind to continue the voting patterns in the suburbs that they did in the cities? All the purpling of red states is mostly migration within the US from blue to red making a nasty purple.

Chain migrating democrats IOWs?

James D.


I'm not sure what Trump was supposed to do.

In all seriousness, what he should do is demand that McTurtle not seat the Dem thieves, and use whatever leverage he has to make him obey.

Of course, McTurtle ought to be doing that all on his own.

I am similarly acting to suspend, for a limited period, the entry of certain aliens in order to address the problem of large numbers of aliens traveling through Mexico to enter our country unlawfully or without proper documentation. I am tailoring the suspension to channel these aliens to ports of entry, so that, if they enter the United States, they do so in an orderly and controlled manner instead of unlawfully.

Yeah, you’re right, James D. Their hatred and disdain is why they got Trump. Enough people in the right places finally woke up. And after Trump, be it in 2020 or 2024, they will make damn sure it never happens again.

I really worry this is going to end in bloodshed. There’s no compromising with people who want you dead or in a re-education camp.

Old Lurker

From the other thread, MM said: "Also, all of you bitching about Trump not doing anything don't KNOW that he didn't do anything. You are just assuming it because he didn't announce it."

We have just come through a tough period at JOM with all the rancor between the Half Full and Half Empty factions. It would be a shame for the next two years to continue just like that.

One thing that makes the rancor certain is when one side can accuse the other of bitching based on their having no actual knowledge while implying that the other side is not bitching because they know they don't know what is happening behind the scenes, but they take for granted that it is being handled.

That tone and implication makes one side good for guessing that while they don't know the facts, they wish to assume facts not in evidence...and the other side is bad for assuming things they cannot see with their own eyes means nothing is happening.

Good lord. We just fired the AG because the absence of visible action was in fact because there was no action, and that all those unissued IG reports, all those presumed GJs and all those sealed indictments which some thought meant the the mother of all battles was being waged in secret. Nope.

GUS

Old Lurker, one can only determine the truth by having facts. One can make conjecture, wishful thinking or make up pretend games, such as 4-d chess, when the aforementioned facts are not there for anyone to see. To believe 2 years past DJT's election, that some silly mythological game is being played has no basis in discernable facts. Jeff Sessions acted like an imbecile when RECUSING himself. He had ZERO reason whatsoeer TO DO SO.
Now the LEFT expects and the media trumpets that ALL OF TRUMPS A.G. choices must RECUSE.

The words....
How about FUCK YOU, come to mind.

As for those who accused me, you, us of not having FAITH......pffffffffffffffffffffffffftt.

Bernardi Dr la paz

So the voter integrity commission was sabotaged the data ordered destroyed this was why, the red states are being stolen because that is the only one a suitable replacement for sessions can be installed, sessions was good on general enforcement principles but the minefield and the possums prevented him from going further

Old Lurker

I chuckle when I see WSJ headlining "Stocks Fall as oil continues to decline".

Maybe. But the market spiked on the better than expected pickups in the Senate and absence of a Blue Wave in the House made the market happy.

Maybe fearing that the good news was fleeting and that the new Senate might be like the old Senate but with Mitt Romney starring as John McCain might make investors sad?

anonamom

OK, I've done my public service---listened to Scott Adams' latest Periscope. (I did multitask.)

Here's the take home message from that 40 minutes of my life that I'll never get back:

Trump Derangement Syndrome is a three legged stool.

The legs: Dictator. Racist. Crazy.

The House going D completely whacked off the Dictator leg, with his immediate congratulations to Nancy P marking it clearly.

His press conference--87 minutes without a net, answering a huge variety of topics, showed anybody watching that he's not crazy, AND that his staff obviously doesn't find him so either, or they'd never let him do that. Not totally removing that leg, but not much left.

So, that leaves RACIST. And even if people want to deny reality and leave that smear intact in the face of no evidence---

You can't use a three legged stool that has only one and a third legs.

Therefore, the atypical divisiveness among NORMAL people is greatly reduced.


Also, a tip of Adams' hat to Acosta for getting the PR he got with the theater he executed, but from the point of analyzing Acosta's actual behavior, he was unquestionably in the wrong. Not the contact w the intern per se, but by not abiding by the rules of the press conference; not standing down when POTUS---in HIS house--told him his time was up.

Miss Marple

Old Lurker,

Your point is taken and I will no longer accuse anyone of bitching.

However, I will remind you that I long ago said I didn't know what was going on and removed myself from the black hat/white hat controversy.

I am the same with this. I don't know what's going on. The President hasn't failed me in the past, and thus I tend to believe there is stuff going on. As a matter of fact, despite Sessions inaction, I also believe stuff has been going on, just not in the Justice Department.

However, rather than insult people here, which I should not have done and for which I apologize, I AM going to go do laundry and stay out of this.

The President is leaving for France shortly and took some questions from the press before departing. I imagine there will be video of this available in a while and I will try to find it and post it. Until then, I am absenting myself so as not to cause dissension or get myself depressed.

Porchlight

You're reading it wrong. If even I am saying Trump fucked up, that means he fucked up.

Anything he is doing now, should have been done a week ago or three weeks ago or six months ago. He or his team should have had armies of lawyers ready to help the lawyers on the ground which he should have confirmed were deployed prior to three freaking days after the election (thank you Rick Scott for being so ON IT). The entire GOP party apparatus should have been mobilized - just like the Dems do.

But instead, everyone kicked back after the election and assumed it was taken care of.

Arizona is likely lost. GOP efforts there are too little too late. Does that "not amount to a hill of beans"? How many other races were stolen that we'll never know about? Montana blue counties came in late too. There are a dozen House races still being counted.

Old Lurker

MM, bitching is a mild word...we can take it.

Mine was a bigger point: when you and I are both calm, we happily admit that neither of us knows anything for sure. You, being you, like to trust that not knowing for sure might still mean Trump has it all under control. That is your faith. Others like me, being me, are in the "Trust but Verify" camp and we choose to think that no evidence of action is probably evidence of no action. Also just a leap of Faith, for sure.

As a good Episcopalian, I am OK with everybody believing anything at all or nothing at all.

Old Lurker

This morning I was bitching to my trainer during my workout...he is a generation younger than me. My point was that my generation of Boomers never had to face any tough realities, so we assume there are no tough realities, and now our children and their children are even more spoiled and protected from the realities of the human condition.

He didn't like that line of thought. So of course I reminded him that my parents survived the Great Depression and WWII and nothing like that has come this way since. He mentioned Viet Nam for my generation and I had to laugh.

DC is considering building a WWI monument (who knew there was not one) and I was listening to the proponents talk about it. In 1916 our population was under 100M, meaning there were under 50M men. Of those, 4+ million were in uniform, and of those 2+ million were sent to battle. Of those several hundred thousand died and twice that number were maimed for life. Then right after the war ended, the Flu Pandemic came along and killed 20% of the world's population.

Growing up in the 50's and later? Ha ha ha ha.

IMO the 24/48 hour rule should be in effect on this. I distinctly remember seeing before the midterms a link to the DOJ or DHS website saying that the Feds were going to be deployed to some of the suspect cities where voting fraud was expected to occur. If we want to end Democrat voting fraud corruption (like Broward county is infamous for) you have to allow them to commit the crime first before you can arrest them. If the DOJ/DHS were prepared for mass voting fraud that anyone with an IQ higher than Forrest Gump knew the Democrats would resort to then we should see some arrests soon. If the DOJ/DHS dropped the ball then Trump should take responsibility for their failure (the buck stops with him) and fire the people who dropped the ball.
