Trump is famous for the names he gave competing candidates and the humiliating things he said about them. i wonder if he will use the same strategy in 2020. How would he refer to Kamala or Beto or even Biden? I would not be surprised if he was more hands-off towards his opponent, because they can destroy themselves without any help from him.

D

I think deep down Robert doesn’t want to run but feels pressure from the Partyto be the 2020 scapegoat.
My bet is on Bernie ala the ill fated George McGovern campaign.

He can't make fun of Biden's hair.

henry

He can point out Biden’s qualifications are as solid as his swimsuit.

As I said at the end of the last thread:

I am gobsmacked that they are actually walking towards the 1968 scenario.

1. Rising leftist wing of the party, who feels like enough isn't being done.
2. Activist groups assemble at the convention city.
3. "Moderate" gets nomination. (Substitute Biden for Humphrey.)
4. Riots ensue.
5. Loss in general election.

I hope Gus takes pictures.

Now we’ll just harass Trump, his family, his company

BREAKING: Pelosi comes out against impeaching Trump

lurkersusie,

A five year old should know absolutely nothing about Trump except that he is president!

Libs inculcating their children with political cant is probably the worst, of many things, they impose on their offspring to prevent healthy development.

jimmyk

On those dying elderly only regretting not seeing the Mueller report, I had linked this from Newsweek late last night (serves me right for posting after midnight):

https://www.newsweek.com/elderly-americans-are-dying-without-getting-read-muellers-report-and-theyre-1352933

As sad as it is that this is how people are thinking on their deathbeds, it's just as sad that journalists are writing serious pieces on this, as if it's not reflecting mental illness of some sort.

henry

TM, I think Beto is running on the Reagan “Tear Down That Wall” platform.

James D.

Willowed:

People don't seem to understand the consequences of their actions, someone will end up being shot sooner than later.

I think the (leftist) people calling for doxing of conservatives understand consequences perfectly well, and would be just fine with people getting shot due to it.

The Infamous Ignatz

Jim's quote of Thomas Sowell;

From pages 57-58, an anecdote in which black sociologist recounts whites worried when he got into the same elevator at the upscale apartment building where he lived:

I once sarcastically said to a nervous elderly couple who hesitated to exit the elevator because we were all getting off on the same floor "Not to worry, I am a Harvard professor and have lived in this building for nine years." Professor Wilson's sarcasm and anger were directed at people whose reactions reflected a greater concern for their own personal safety than for his sensitivities.


The thing that pisses me off is guys like Professor Wilson never direct their anger and sarcasm at the violent criminals whose behavior induces the perfectly rational desire among others not to be among their victims, especially since it is his fellow blacks who are the overwhelming victims of their violence.
Astonishingly enough they actively excuse them and try to spring them from jail to rape and kill more black people which is supposed to somehow show whitey they won't be oppressed.

Jack is Back!

I will die not knowing Chelsea Clinton was a notorious serial killer specializing in 911 survivors grand children.

I will die not hearing about Barron Trump being elected POTUS in the tradings of the Adams family but skipping a generation.

I will die never knowing if my powerball number preference 3-6-11-23-25-32 ever won more tha $5.

D

Henry:
That is hilarious! I love defeated candidates like Beto and Stacy Abrams think they have a chance at winning.
Pride goeth before the fall.
If Beto is smart , he will wait until 2024.
Good thing he isn’t smart.

Jack is Back!

I don't know about 1968 because I wasn't around for about 5/6 of it but "Current Year" they must be trying to raise a revolutionary army. Flood America with cheap labor. Flood America with unpayable debt. Flood America with drugs and pornography.

It might be better for Trump if they DO try to impeach him, which is why Pelosi's been advised to take her current stance.

I need to run this down when I get home but the concept of 'Racism' was sold by pseudoscientific sociologists as a negative character trait of Europeans. See, it's not about power differential or punching down its genetic. It's not genocide they're after, they merely want to destroy racism!

Hey 23 and Me, who here is European?

Hey Mr Jim in Sunnyvale, do you know what the UN calls those passages from Sowell's book you excerpted?

Ethnic Cleansing. I think it's a War Crime.

Mr Pin tell me honestly! Are you upset ... or trying to qualify for one of those high-pay, make-work UN jobs?

Beto is a millionaire, soon to be billionaire via his father-in-law. At least the Kennedys were launched by their own dad.

O'Rourke is the Democratic Party's Fabio.

The New Yorker has gone the way of CNN, WaPo, and NYT. It was always left of center, but mostly not so political, including the cartoons. Now it’s flipped, in more ways than one. I’d subscribed for years, but dropped it two years ago when it became all Orange Man Bad, all the time.

The one in the dress on the left, maryrose.

Wow he makes an ugly woman!

The guy on the right is prettier.

The one in the dress on the left, maryrose.

Probably get him the tranny vote.

Oh, sorry, that should have been addressed to JiB, not maryrose.

Jeb! Owned by Chinese?

Sean Davis:

Hillary Clinton and the DNC colluded with a foreign spy and a sanctioned Russian oligarch to interfere in the 2016 general election. Now it looks like the biggest NeverTrump PAC in 2016 colluded with Chinese nationals during the GOP primary.

Henry:
Hillary and company have committed so many crimes with foreign countries it boggles the mind.
No wonder she demanded Secretary of State.
She spent all of her time arranging illegal sweetheart deals.
Too bad she couldn’t be bothered to respond to ambassadors in harm’s way because she was getting rich and drunk instead of doing her job.

They might as well fed panda for all the good they did.

More sad news from Glasater: Our dear Pagar passed away last Wednesday his daughter wrote to tell me just now. She said he had a massive stroke Sunday and just couldn't pull out of it.

I didn't know this but self-driving cars are racist. Trump must have a dealership then.

RIP Pagar. Had anyone here met him?

Oh no.
It can’t be.I loved his posts and I agreed with him almost 100 percent of the time.
I am so upset.

Jeb! Owned by Chinese?

Damn that sucks about Pagar. Prayers to his family.

Sad news again. RIP Pagar.

Ugh.

jimmyk

Very sad about pagar. I sure hope bad news doesn’t come in threes.

Jack is Back!

Never met Pagar but was a friend on FB. Loren Kapplinberg, IIRC. A great patriot. He hated anyone who was not pro-American values, especially Democrats, as we all know. A friend, a patriot, an American treasure. Rest in Peace, my Friend. May God Rest your Soul.

O'Rourke is the Democratic Party's Fabio. Not much going on upstairs but the girls ooh and aah....

I'd put money on Fabio being significantly smarter than the buck toothed goof.

Oh I am so sad about Pagar. I loved him.

Pagar will meet up with daddy in heaven .
He was pro-life and a kind, good person.
I will miss him very much.

Ugh. You all stay healthy!

RIP Pagar.

Yeah, DrJ, these things tend to happen in threes. I wish everyone a happy lifestyle. Run, lift weights, eat Keto, drink red wine, enjoy life, and if it comes for you to join daddy and pagar consider yourself blessed.

Keto?

Japanese woman honored by Guinness as oldest person at 116

She is usually up by 6 a.m. and enjoys studying mathematics.

The previous oldest living person was another Japanese woman, Chiyo Miyako, who died in July at age 117. The oldest person prior to Miyako was also Japanese.
