Good ol' Jow Blow(hard).

Porchlight

I began to feel a bit sorry for Joe after the first few minutes.

What a bunch of jerks.

Except Michael Bennet, who was reasonable and goodnatured, and who is far too sensible for the Dems to ever nominate.

Inslee was also polite, for the most part. I can see why some of the true believers like him.

realistic plans are worse than republican talking points. Huff these unicorn farts and soil a street in San Francisco, comrade. /Dem

Porchlight,

Unless they have an easy way to identify them (like DeBlasio being tall) I have trouble keeping track of who is who outside of the frontrunners.

The Infamous Ignatz

--BIDEN: No, I didn't say that.--

That just gets funnier the more I think about it.

The part that isn't funny is that we don't need a plan at all and any plan, realistic or otherwise, will be a wealth and freedom crushing disaster solving a non existent problem.

Porchlight

Most of them will be gone soon anyway, MM.

I guess I find it a tiny bit heartening that a mainstream guy like Bennet can still get enough traction to at least make it to the debate stage in today's Dem party. He had to pay some lip service to fruitcake ideas here and there, but you got the impression he didn't really GAS about them.

From the last thread:
Absent a smoking gun of them admitting they knew they were false they'll just say "in our best judgment we thought they had been verified to the best of our ability.

Somehow that doesn't work for Republicans (Libby, Flynn, et al.) even for much less serious offenses.

Vox is butthurt that people have nutty ideas.

The vast majority of these nutty ideas are conceived and birthed and reared by leftists. Vox doesn't like that this makes the left look bad. Therefore, speech must be suppressed.

Tom R.,

That is what I had happen this morning with a Washington Examiner article. I thought the Examiner had been moved to the "unapproved web site" list like some of the more obscure blogs and sites.

I just gave up trying.

James D.

If I was forced at gunpoint to vote for one of the Dem candidates, it would definitely be Williamson.

She may be a nut, and dangerous, but she’s not a career criminal (oops, I mean politician), and as a total outsider with no support from the Dem establishment, she’d face a lot of the same kind of resistance from her own party that President Trump gets from the GOPe, so it would be harder for her to do damage to the country than it would for any of the other Dems currently running.

Narciso

Tom R

Dual response to Henry @8:17 and Iggy @ 10:33 breaking it up into two parts since Typepad is eating it.

Henry's comment about a DawsonSFields tweet
internet sleuths, what idiocy can't they fluff?

And people can’t fathom why it is valuable to pretend Comey isn’t on Trump’s team.

From Iggy' 10:33

Expecting the Swamp's own justice system to drain itself is unrealistic isn't it?
The only possible way it is drained is from without, not within.

People properly laugh at some of the 4D nonsense and then turn around and think the rule of law can be imposed by the very Swamp that administers its own justice

The rule of law and the Swamp cannot coexist. The Swamp controls the rule of law so the necessary pretext of reestablsihing the rule of law to eliminate the Swamp is unrealistic and as pie in the sky as 4d ever was.

Henry and Iggy's comments are connected. Fields does believe Comey is on Team Trump. I know that causes almost everyone here to automatically label him an idiot. In reality I think its more along the lines of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend". Comey is not an ally of Trump and those who believe in Constitutional rule of law shouldn't want that anyways. We already saw with Obama how bad a corrupt, partisan DOJ/FBI can violate the principals the country was founded on. What we really need is a DOJ/FBI that is non-partisan and follows the rule of law. If you view Comey from the perspective he wasn't on Team Trump nor was he on Team Obama and Team Hillary then DawsonSFields speculative tweets make a lot of sense. Fields is speculating that Comey is actually on Team DOJ/FBI and following the rule of law. Bear with me.

Melinda

Wanna bet?

Tom R

part 2 (third try)

Iggy's point that you cant drain the Swamp from within, it has to be from without, is probably correct. According to DawsonSFields, Spygate started long before Trump started his campaign to become POTUS. Fields, with plenty of evidence to back himself up, speculates the Obama admin was spying on a LOT of influential people to include Senators for a long time well prior to the 2016 campaign. I don't think anyone here disputes that.

Now factor in the hack of Mossack Fonseca that led to the leak of the Panama Papers in 2015. 11.5 million documents leaked to the public that revealed a global money laundering scheme that reached to the highest levels of numerous governments, politicians, Wall Street, bankers, etc. If the only way to drain the Swamp is from the outside, the leak of the Panama Papers would be the way to do it. According to DawsonSField, Comey and FBI agents he could trust (good guys, not McCabe/Strzok types) began a FBI investigation into the global money laundering scandal. This all started while Obama was still POTUS.

Narciso

Comey ran interference for HSBC the overworld bank of choice, Mueller was very circumspect with banamex and his firm represented Deutsche bank, whose largest shareholder is Chinese hna.

Tom R

Part 3

Here is one of Fields key points: the main reason Obama and his criminal cabal started spying on numerous influential people is because they knew the Panama Papers implicated the large majority of their globalist/Communist/Progressive or whatever label you want to call their corrupt allies. I guess you could say the Panama Papers leak was the final trigger for Obama to go FULL COMMIE. At that point they had to do whever they could to protect the Swamp members implicated in the Panama Papers.

Remember when Hillary was reported to have said something along the lines that if Trump got elected then everyone was screwed? Analyze in the context she knew Comey's global money laundering investigation would target her and the Clinton Foundation. A Trump victory meant Comey's investigation would be allowed to proceed. On almost a daily basis there is breaking news on people getting arrested around the world who are connected to the global money laundering scandal. The Swamp is indeed in the process of getting drained from the outside.

Anyways this has gone on long enough. IMO Fields speculation on Spygate and the global money laundering scandal are highly plauisble. I definately don't think they are idiotic. If Fields is correct, then the "enemy of my enemy is my friend" applies to Comey. The global money laundering investigation targeted Trump's political enemies so therefore on that issue they are on the same side.

Tom R

Melinda @ 11:47

Were you responding to me?

Comey follows rule of law? What part of the law says Hillary needed "intent" (which she demonstrated anyway) to be guilty of violating laws on classification, or government record keeping? That is the funniest thing I've heard yet.

Trump rally now scheduled for August 15 in NH. Since NH was stolen by only a handful of votes in 2016, I think this is a reasonable prospect for a Trump pickup in 2020.

Just read this at Insty:

The internet was all abuzz because a mic caught Biden calling Harris “kid” when the two walked on stage. Is there any limit to how petty and self-hating these lefties are? Biden said ‘Go easy on me, kid’ and all the grievance mongers were off the races.”

He must have used the same line on Ryan--and it seems to have worked both times.

It’s going to be portrayed as petty and vindictive regardless of how strong the case is. And there’s no way in hell a DC or Northern Virginia jury will convict any of these deep stagers anyway.

May as well file the charges, bleed them dry with legal defense fees, raid their homes and cart off every electronic device and scrap of paper as evidence, and just generally make their lives as hellish as possible for as long as possible.

Teach them that process can be punishment for their side, too, not just for conservatives.

1. “It’s my turn!”

3. All that sweet, sweet campaign cash they can be converted to personal use when the campaign’s over.
4. It’s not like he’s qualified to do anything other than campaign. Standing up on a stage telling lies, mangling nonsensical stories and slandering anyone he doesn’t like is pretty much his core competency.
5. His wife probably is encouraging him, because after all, would YOU want him hanging around the house all day?

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Am getting damn tired of braindead MAGA uber alles types who think the president will automatically win reelection because the Dems are socialist idiots.

So is half of America, you gits.

Obama won twice and Hillary came within an inch of doing it. 100,000 votes the other way and we would have lost the electoral college.

And anyway, it's too early to make a prediction on the specific outcome at all.

One thing I can say with certainty though. If out of robotic loyalty we underestimate the opposition because of a lemming-like groupthink then we deserve to lose.

This fight will be a hard one no matter who is their nominee. We have arrayed against us the full force of the left, center left, Vichy GOP, pop culture, entertainment, academia, publishing, Hollywood, etc.

We are the Allies in 1943. No matter what happens, which way the hinge of fate turns, it will be a close run thing.

Regarding the President's tweet:

If you didn't listen to Dr. Pilsbury talking to Lou Dobbs in that video the President tweeted (I know some people are in places where they can't listen to videos) I want to emphasize one thing Dr. Pulsbury said: the Chinese didn't realize that they would be expected to sign a legally binding agreement, where Chinese companies could be sued by US companies.

They thought they were just going to be able have an informal agreement with a sense of purpose but nothing legally binding.

So that's why they wanted to renegotiate before they signed, seemingly at the last minute.

Captain Hate

Obama won twice and Hillary came within an inch of doing it.

Gaylord won against two terrible candidates who I'm embarrassed by having voting for and won't make that mistake again. He also followed a terrible Bush presidency that only the biggest pom pom wavers would call anything but a disaster.

Trump was an unknown quantity in 2016. For every protest voter there were surely offsetting people who were afraid he'd be in over his head. I'm not taking anything for granted but I'm also not reacting well to hair on fire arguments.

MissMarple3

I am with Captain Hate. Trump has proven that he can handle the job and that he keeps his promises. Those surely will bring him more voters than last time.

Of course we have to work and show up, but I would point out all the work in the world couldn't pull Romney over the finish line. Trump did it without any of the high-paid consultants. This time his campaign manager is Brad Parscale, who has to be a genius. Who else would have thought of the Trump straws?

I think Trump will win and I am not going to give one inch in my effort, so please knock off with the insults to people who aren't as pessimistic.

Go back to that polling analyst from the night before last. They're trying to force positions that the public currently doesn't want, with most on a two to on against.

That's not a tough sell.

I think Trump will win in a rout, but I can see as of today that the nominee is Biden; you know the Kamala train has ground to a halt when Michael Moore comes out today saying only Michelle Obama can beat Trump. Either Michelle actually does decide to run, or Barack will soon be conferring his mighty blessing on Slow Joe. Biden, because he is not a SJW, will be the hardest candidate for Trump to beat. Pennsylvania might go to Biden, Florida would be more in trouble against Biden than against any of the others.

Still, Trump is a force of nature, and at the end of the day most voters will reward a good first term.

election memory is short term. By next fall the Dem nominee will be "moderate" without a trace of all things that poll badly. Trump should win, but I do not expect a cakewalk.

Porchlight

Obama won twice and Hillary came within an inch of doing it.

That's just it. Even a crap President like Obama who got royally spanked in his first midterm was able to easily win re-election two years later.

And after he was done, the most name-recognized candidate in the last thirty years couldn't beat a septuagenarian upstart running in his first election ever.

In 2019 that upstart is arguably the most successful Republican incumbent in modern history who has kicked ass up and down the field for two and a half years even as he was being opposed by nearly everyone except those that voted for him and restrained and hounded by an investigation which only the total diehards now fail to realize was partisan illegal bullshit.

A little perspective, please.

Porchlight

I wasn't addressing you, henry. I'll insert as much hyperbole as I like. If anyone deserves it, it's Trump.

Tom R

Henry @ 11:53

Keep in mind while the Hillary email server investigation was going on its highly likely Comey was also investigating the global money laundering scandal.

As I see it there are two perspectives to view how Comey handled the Hillary email server scandal: the idealistic view and the pragmatic view.

In an ideal world the FBI conducts a non-partisan, objective investigation into Hillary's email server, provides the evidence they collect to the DOJ, the DOJ indicts Hillary for committing multipled federal crimes related to protecting TOP SECRET classified information, and Hillary is forced to withdraw from the 2016 Presidential campaign. That all happens in an ideal world. How history plays out after that is a crap shoot. Biden would likely be the selected choice to replace Hillary. Trump got a lot of Democrat crossover votes in a lot of blue and purple states that he won. Does Trump still win Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin if he is running against Biden?

In a pragmatic world Comey knows a lot of his CounterIntel agents running the Hillary email server investigation are corrupt, hyper-partisan and Hillary supporters. Peter Strzok is the best example. He knew from the outset his corrupt agents weren't trying to nail Hillary, they were trying to protect her. Even if Strzok does an objective investigation and tries to nail Hillary, the Lynch DOJ still had to make the decision to indict her. Comey's comment that no reasonable prosecutor would indict Hillary is 100% true. Since everyone expected Hillary to win the election, what Democrat US Attorney working in the Lynch DOJ would commit career suicide and indict Hillary? That was never going to happen and Comey knew it so he took the pragmatic approach.

How many people here at JOM were enraged after Comey's press conference where he explained in detail all the crimes Hillary committed but was not going to be indicted for? My guess is almost everyone was pissed off. I know I was. Multiply that rage across the entire country and the end result of how Comey handled the Hillary email server IMO caused a LOT of voters to support Trump. What Comey clearly told the country was that Hillary Clinton was above the law and would not be held accountable when it was clear she had committed a federal crime. I think Comey screwed Hillary over twice, intentionally, because he knew she was corrupt, had committed multiple crimes, and thru the Clinton Foundation was intimately involved in the global money laundering scandal.

Captain Hate

Also I don't react well to arguments that badmouth the voting public. Sure a lot of times people get elected that I didn't support but that's not because voters are stupid; almost always it's because the person I supported ran a terrible campaign. The GOP has developed a really bad attitude regarding taking the base for granted and acting like their candidate doesn't have to earn their support. Trump, from the private sector, understands working hard to create a brand and never failing to appeal to existing and potential customers.

In a way it's embarrassing that no non ruling class Presidents have happened since Coolidge, I guess. It's up to us to make sure non political class candidates keep happening.

D

I reviewed today's Posts.
No one insulted anybody.
I watched the debates to reassure myself that none of these jokers can defeat our President.
We will have to continue to work hard ?but I am confident President Trump will prevail.

Porchlight

Other than the Bushes I don't view any Republican presidents since Coolidge as ruling class - but maybe it depends what you mean, Cap'n.

henry, sorry, that came off more aggressive than I meant it. I was responding to Kamioner, who himself was aggressive toward the so-called "braindead MAGA uber alles types." Without whom Trump would likely never have been elected.

Truman was also not ruling class, though he did come out of a political machine and succeeded a patrician.

Captain Hate

I should've thought that through better, Porch. Ike was kind of a gray area because military isn't the private sector and to achieve his rank meant understanding politics. Nixon had a business existence but was primarily a pol. Ford was a pol. Reagan was a self made actor who turned to politics later.

Nobody but Perot and nutjobs like Nader used the Presidency as an entry level undertaking.
