If my sources were correct in April 2017, largest channel on network tv and one of the two most powerful newspapers in America, and I had a FISA on me; if that country is named, it will rock one of the most important alliances the US has because of Obama DOJ misconduct. No Russia

Reminds me of de Blassio's becoming Italian.

I've been watching "Bodyguard" on Netflix. In one scene one of the Brit pols is speaking to the Home Secretary (who the main character David is guarding) and refers to him as her "little monkey." David interrupts and says "I'm mixed race," to embarrass him. Later the Secretary says, "Are you really? I had no idea." And he just says, "No, ma'am." It was a funny little moment. Good series, incidentally, at least so far.

Jack is Back!

So what are the new corrupt, fraudster,beatdown, Dem chairs going to do?
Refer the banks to the DoJ, like the GoP did to Holder for contempt? Where did that go?

Impeachment? Goes nowhere in the Senate.

Freeze the FISA investigations? They don't control the DoJ or FBI or CIA, although it appears Trump doesn't either.

They can threaten all they want, and they can issue subpoenas, and keep the executive busy sending people up to the hill to testify, or Trump could exercise Executive privilege.

I don't see them do more than helping Trump and the GOP in 2020. While they are in control of the house, their presidential candidates are on the trail, showing America how opposed they are to all the new jobs, rising salaries, better furtures, etc.

No. The best thing that can happen to the Dems is as a minimum maintain the status quo and hope they don't take the House.

I am back from early voting which was VERY crowded. This is good, because the south side of Indy is Republican.

Touch screen with print out of how you voted, which you seal in an envelope and sign, along with two elections inspectors, one from GOP and one from the rats. Very efficient operation, everyone friendly.

I refused to vote for unopposed democrats and asked if that was ok, which it was. (These were municipal offices. One was for Marion County Auditor!! Seems to me the GOP could have at least made an effort.)

Nothing says "Failure Theater" like not even competing in contests, particularly county wide.

Captain Hate,

I totally agree. The only thing I can think of is that they didn't want to have an auditor in office because of the absolute waste of money and no doubt also corruption from our dem mayor.

The other two were Center Township offices and I can sort of see it since that is the black, heavily dem township and a GOP candidate would stand NO chance, plus if it were a black GOP candidate he would probably be harassed.

This happens all the time in blue hells. I can understand no one wanting to waste time running against entrenched Dems in 95% Dem districts, but they should have to face some opposition, and sometimes they even have to respond and defend their positions.

In 2016 someone we knew ran against Nadler, and used the campaign to attack Nadler for supporting the Iran deal. Nadler had to defend it, and had to spend a bit of money. He still won 80-20 (it's the UWS after all), but it was good that he faced some opposition.

If it's going to be cold and wet, I wish the temps would drop a few degrees and then we could at least have snow, which isn't so gloomy and depressing.

Rain predicted for Election Day and that includesFlorida, Georgia, Ohio and Indiana.

The leftist NPCs have very similar responses on all these early voting Twitter threads?

"Why do you make stuff up?"

"You're just making stuff up now"

"This is made up like all the other stuff you post"

Etc.

Yes its prince Salman now the times has put their money on prince Ahmed. The head chopper in chief.

Most likely it was Israel or Cyprus, those were the countries he was dealing with

Good news, maryrose. As we have seen with our own lyin' eyes, Trump supporters have zero problems waiting in line in the rain and cold.

Dem voters who have been too lazy to vote prior to Election Day on the other hand....

Bernardo de la paZ

And in Cyprus, you have the Turkish angle which brings us back to the anti Israel side of this info up.

Old Lurker

Jimmy, there are so many answers to your question, and it is not just in NYC it is everywhere. DC and my hood in Arlington are having the same problems.

I will expand some in a later response.

Here is one anecdote from some experience here. Arlington used to be business friendly. Now as James and Janet will attest, the county now has a thirteen story office building filled with departments which all want to have a say in our new tenants. Ten years ago a new tenant could get a building permit for a commercial use in less than a month. I signed a Lease in January after negotiating with the tenant for four months during which time his architect completed his drawings. So when we signed the Lease, he submitted his completed plans and application. It still has not been issued. So this guy has more than a year and a lot of money invested, and still is not under construction. We gave him six months of free rent to account for that process and it obviously was not enough. If the deal falls through, then we have to start all over. All my neighbors see is a vacant store and they must think I am nuts.

Oh. My real estate taxes on that property have gone up TEN TIMES the rate of inflation in the last ten years, and because commercial tenants have to reimburse the Landlord for his share of those taxes, a lot of tenants are scared to death to put their money at risk in Arlington County because the county itself is killing the retail market.

That's just a quick "here's one answer" but there are more, including your baliwick...access to bank credit.

Trust me, I would love to fill my retail vacancies. I have owned these properties for more than thirty years and used to replace tenants in three months or less. Today we plan on two years from the last rent check to the next one.

Thanks, OL. I guess the economist's usual question is "Why not just lower the rent?" but I realize it's not so simple. The Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto famously wrote that to start a small business that would take about 2 days of bureaucracy in the US takes 2 years in Peru. We are gradually becoming more like a 3rd world country.

Mayor Bane obviously cares so deeply:

Hales-Tooke refused to shake De Blasio’s hand over the treatment of his friend. He also criticized the mayor for his “boilerplate” address, according to the Post.

“I didn’t hear a thing about the lives, the people. Nicholas Cleves was born and bred in New York. He loved this city. His mother’s destroyed by this,” he said.

He added: “I thought that was what this was about, that this is a moment where we would say . . . ‘You know, we care, we really do care,’ but I didn’t get the feeling. [The mayor] said this attack has been in our hearts for a year . . . Really? Do you believe that?”

I messed up. ChiTown says half of Cyprus is controlled by Erdogan, the other half is controlled by Russia via their banks that the EU swiped oligarch euros to bail in.

He thinks it's a Shimon Peres supporting faction in Mossad.

I'm curious: how is your former neighborhood in Arlington doing now that NSF has moved to Alexandria? Is the Front Page even in business any longer?

AVENATTI LAUNCHES FIRST POLITICAL AD, TELLS PEOPLE TO ‘JOIN THE FIGHT CLUB’

The video, almost a minute and a half long, opens with quick shots of different people saying “We the people,” until one says, “Are mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore.”

“Enough with the lies. Enough with the cover ups. Enough with the bigotry. Enough with the misogyny,” those in the ad say, one by one.

Avenatti comes into the picture to say “Stand up. Join the fight club.”

Judicial Watch Sues FBI over Failure to Preserve Text Messages

“This lawsuit exposes a massive FBI cover-up of its text messages, which are government records and are, by the thousands, likely to have been deleted and lost by FBI employees,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “And of course, this cover-up conveniently impacts the production of text messages to Judicial Watch and Congress of disgraced FBI officials Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and James Comey.”

Ext:
Foot dragging on the Huber and Horowitz investigations has given these crooks ample time to destroy all the evidence by shredding it or deleting it.
Fitton is right to be upset.
No one appears to be bothered or alarmed by this in the administration , least of all AGSessions and his faithful sidekick Rosenstein.
They both remind me of Mr Peabody and his boy Sherman.
Rosenstein even looks like Sherman.
The so amazing people still implanted at State, DOJ and the FBI are thumbing their noses at Nunes, Jordan , Meadows and the good guy from Florida ,Gaetz. I am beyond dismayed at the lack of alarm that in fact. Most of these perps are going to skate.
I echo Captain’s request of Tom R and RG to define Mueller’s role and the ultimate result of the waste of time Special Counsel.

The Obama people instead of amazing..

Jack is Back!

Great presser which, of course, reveals that the WH press corp is mostly about being adverserial without even a clue as to the law or the responsibility of the CinC.

But they are no match for DJT, and he knows that. I think he enjoys trolling them everytime he allows them to talk.

maryrose

Guess what are tough investigators Sessions and Rosie were doing today?
They were at some award ceremony.
No one takes breaking the law seriously.
It really is a complete joke to them.

Not true; Wyoming had 70.1% for DJT versus 68.7 in West Virginia. Still impressive though...

Obama had written in his first book, "Dreams From My Father" (1995), before entering politics, that he had used marijuana and cocaine ("maybe a little blow"). He said he had not tried heroin because he did not like the pusher who was trying to sell it to him.

He could share a cell with KUDLOW. When Obama drops the soap, some EYE TALIAN with a PAD lock will SOCK IT TO HIM. I sure hope the don't cut out his tongue.

GUS

Old Lurker, I absolutely feel your pain. Counties and Municipalities elect stupid fuckers like Obama, Pelosi, Waters, Weiner, Rahm Emanuael, who have ZERO idea how business works, and even less of a notion of what the costs of commercial real estate deals are. They couldn't give a flying fuck.

"U.S. authorities accuse Chinese state-owned firm and its Taiwanese partner of stealing trade secrets from chip maker Micron Technology"

Ha! The Trump administration seems to be working from the Chinese template: always accuse the person you're about to negotiate with of some wrong doing or offense to the body politic in order to put him off his stride.

"Obama's claim that WI is 'one of the worst gerrymandered states…. "

NC says, "Hold my moonshine." The unending saga of District 12:

Former District photo NC_CD12_zpsvq2md6rj.png

I believe District 12 has a lock on the Oscar for "most gerrymandered district evah." Republicans tried to fix that with a neatly drawn revised map, which was struck down by the NC Supreme Court, for, of all things, being racially gerrymandered. The fact that District 12 was originally gerrymandered by the Democrats for the specific purposes of creating a majority black district was apparently deemed irrelevant.

But never mind, the new, newly revised, districting map was approved by the U.S. Supreme Court, then stayed by a trial judge in another action, whose order was put on hold by the Supremes through the 2018 election….
