Since my election as President the Dow Jones is up 43% and the NASDAQ Composite almost 50%. Great news for your 401(k)s as they continue to grow. We are bringing back America faster than anyone thought possible!

I think we need to send Anti-Biz Markey and Elle Jefe down to Venezuela. It's a perfect opportunity for them to sign up for El Dealio Nuevo Verde.

At Colombia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Bogota, @VP confers about situation in Venezuela with opposition leader Juan Guaido and Colombian Pres Iván Duque Márquez.

I see that the VP is to give a speech in Colombia at 10:30, which C-SPAN says it will cover.

Nope.

Highlighting her stupidity only makes the GOPe that lost to her look even dumber, IMO.

Well her gope opponent was only slightly smarter than this wombat cub.

Narciso79

The point they would be begging to send them back, they have their own home grown moochers

Captain Hate

Exactly, TK; that is the lesson that should be learned from that. She got elected because the incumbent was a worthless pile of shit who didn't do a fucking thing for the district and AOC, to her credit, flat out out worked him. That lesson is lost on Failure Theater, full of expense account padders like Rick Wilson and Rove, who excuse the lack of effort by quoting some dumbass comic strip as if they're reading Immanuel Kant.

I'm sure between the SJW signaling and make up tips they would have pointed this out:

Darwin has some interesting quotes about race mixing that sound a lot like Muhammad Ali. All conspicuously absent from the fossil record, if you will. Nobody seems interested in turning him into James Watson.

Nothing good, but it's the worst piece of claptrap since the last one.

She had a wife beating deadbeat Republican run against her in the general, MM.

That is the best the GOPe had to offer. If no republican ran at all it would even better make the point of who is more stupid in the equation.

Thanks, Captain Hate.

I thought the GOP was so lame they didn't even have a candidate. I guess that was not quite true.

matt - deplore me if you must

Luckily we had 2 episodes of Blacklist saved last night. Oscar who?

I understand it was quite the little temper tantrum. Trump is so deep in their heads that they just can't help themselves. The guy in the gown was classic.

The first mistake any poor scientist makes is to design their own biases into an experiment. If what was stated above is true, then Darwin is in a pickle. Larger gene pools lead to greater homogeneity within a species. In the Galapagos, the land species, and even some of the birds ha ugh smaller gene pools, which would have reinforced genetic commonalities.

Way back in the 1850's genetics was unknown until Mendel in the 50's and 60's, probably not concurrent with Darwin.

There is a lot more going on than we think and we don't know what we don't know.

Irreproducible results are common these days and yet we are so woke and progressive that it just can't be so!

I am looking forward to the banana harvest in Oregon in a few years.Probably genetically evolved cannabananas.

Thanks, TK.

You amplified the stupidity they displayed, so now I am up to speed.

The last episode that was quite a twist, it echoes the Edwin Wilson parallel, Wilson spent 20 years in prison, while the folks who ordered him to get close to Gaddafi suffered no consequences.

Miss Marple,

After Trump campaigned in an overwhelmingly black area a couple miles from me, I'm no longer excusing Mutt Rombley type approaches of only addressing sure things. Also isn't AOC's district hugely Hispanic, the ethnic group which Senors Yeb and Rove were telling us will trend for the GOP?

Jussie Smollett told cops he has an untreated drug problem — raising questions about whether he might try to use the claim to at least get any potential prison sentence reduced, according to a report Friday.

The “Empire” star divulged his alleged drug problem after turning himself in Thursday morning on charges he filed a false police report involving a hate crime, TMZ reported.

Captain Hate,

I actually think legal Hispanics will vote for Trump for 2 reasons:

1. Their neighborhoods are the ones hit by the crime and gangs due to illegals. (Who wants a 5-time convicted rapist moving in next door?)

2. Jobs.

Also, they won't vote for a female or wussified candidate, which seems to cover about all of the dem field.

CH and others got to this above, but Pappas was unopposed in the Republican primary and is an economics professor. 1. i was able to find with about a five minute search his very ugly divorce (at least one) and 2. he didn't even have an operational website (that may have changed during the general, but remember writing about it at the time).

CH had it right-AOC just outworked her Dem opponent who was bitten with the Eric Cantor bug and the GOP wasn't going to compete in that district.

why we spend so much time on essentially a backbencher? idk.

I think AOC reflects worse on the Dems than the Repubs, so I don't mind "smart conservative websites" shining a light on her idiocies. As to her R opponent: I always think Rs should run strong conservative candidates even in a losing battle, but I don't think this is a district where Rs had a snowball's chance in hell of winning. Still a good opponent would have made the case against her, and paved the way for possibly unseating her in 2020.

If Rs were smart (ha), they'd be grooming some Hispanic conservative to run against her. Maybe if I did like Beto and called myself Jaime, I could do it. I even can speak a smidgen of Espanol.

If so, maybe it would be a good strategy to get Cruz a spot in the Trump administration, and appoint an appealing conservative in his spot (or to run in a special election, however they do it there)--preferably in 2020 while Beto is preoccupied with his quixotic run for president.

Russian state TV shows US targets that it says could be hit by new Russian missiles

On Sunday's edition of Russia's weekly TV news show "Vesti Nedeli," host Dmitry Kiselyov showed a computer-generated map of the United States with several targets marked. These targets included the Pentagon, Camp David, the Jim Creek Navy communications base in Washington state, as well as a military training center in Maryland and a U.S. Air Force base in California that have both been closed for years. Kiselyov said that these targets were military or presidential command centers.

He then demonstrated the speed at which a Russian hypersonic missile could reach each of these targets if a nuclear war broke out between the U.S. and Russia.

"For now, we're not threatening anyone, but if such a deployment takes place, our response will be instant," Kiselyov said, according to a translation provided by Reuters. Reuters also said that Kiselyov is "close to the Kremlin."

Good Morning.

Here's a column on Winston Churchill making "Bad Optics" in WW2.

The article includes 2 images produced by the Nazi's to show how they used the image to portray Churchill as a War Criminal to the Germans.

Nazi propaganda minister Goebbels saw the image as a god send and used it extensively domestically, with the other Axis countries, and even in air drops over the Britain during the Battle of Britain with the text in English “WANTED,,” and at the bottom: “for incitement to MURDER.” The reverse of the leaflet is all text: This gangster, who you see in his element in the picture, incites you by his example to participate in a form of warfare in which women, children and ordinary citizens shall take the leading parts. This absolutely criminal form of warfare which is forbidden by the Hague Convention will be punished according to military law. Save at least your own families from the horrors of war!

So Joseph Goebbels and Admiral Kirby share the same world view as to what is "Bad Optics"---It must be a day ending in "Y."

JUNEAU — Gov. Mike Dunleavy has abolished Alaska’s climate change strategy commission and has removed a procedural roadblock for several major construction projects, including the Knik Arm Crossing. Administrative Order No. 309, issued Friday, rescinds seven orders issued by former Gov. Bill Walker, including one from Oct. 31, 2017, that established the state’s climate change strategy and the Climate Action for Alaska Leadership Team. That team drafted a climate change policy and formally submitted it to the governor’s office in September. The plan has not been implemented. The governor’s office sent letters to the climate change team on Friday saying their work for the task force “has ended.” The state website for the team, including the draft strategy it created, has been removed...
