Jim, IMO Salena’s formula seems to be getting a little long in the tooth. She did some amazing work in 2006 working a lot of back roads, and called it correctly. But I don’t think Trump is sneaking up on anyone anymore.

AB,

I like Salena's articles, maybe it's confirmation bias.

I do think there are people that couldn't pull the lever for Trump in 2016 who will be happy to do so this year.

Especially if we get another Hillary-type candidate on the other side.

Might Johnny Depp of all people be the one to bring some sense to the domestic abuse problem?

Believe the woman? Unconditionally? That’s crazy.

I get that Jim. As “ledge” as I am, it is nice to hear the positive stories. I wish we’d be hearing and reading more of what comes after Trump. People should be getting groomed to continue Trumpism.

Another Bob

And with that, AB out. Have had some trouble sleeping the last few nights, stayed up a little to be sure I’d be tired-tired.

Mock is a poor word choice. Legitimately question the contents thereof would be much better.

SOF forces may be over-used and possibly poorly led, but let's blame the tip of the spear for over-exuberance. Yes, there may be some bad apples. There might just as easily be too many Monday morning quarterbacks (military investigators and lawyers included).

Sweet dreams AB,

It's like that question, "What would we do without news?"

Well, we'd be poorly informed and have difficulty forming reasonable opinions. Kind of like where we already are having to wade through so much biased news to find the real thing.

I think that's why we have discovered "brand names" in reportage that have value to us.

They may fall into seemingly doing the same "schtick," over and over again, but that's a measure of consistency that liberal have long become accustomed to with their "guiding lights."

The Democrats May Have Lost...but They're Still Smarter than You
By Clarice Feldman

Clarice's latest:

“The United States welcomes the Polish government’s decision to purchase 32 F-35A Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter aircraft worth $4.6 billion under the Foreign Military Sales program,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement. The original State Department approval allowed for a price as high as $6.5 billion."

This is a good move for both Poland and the US.

"The F-35As will replace existing Sukhoi Su-22 and Mikoyan MiG-29 Russian aircraft. Poland already flies 48 F-16s."

It's a little crass, of course, but if you want a defense pact, spend some money on US weapons instead of some Euro-shit.

Tactically, it makes great sense because of the interoperability of the F-35's. If needed, because they can share data links, Polish and US F-35's can act as a combined uniform force.

Poland seems to be a much more astute ally than Germany. I guess that's what happens when Poland is on the front-line and Germany thinks, well, they have to get through the Poles to get to us.

Iggy gets another mention. Deservedly.

Iggy, one of these days Clarice is going to abandon the "fair use" rules and just ghost write a column for you.

This is the second story on the same subject I've seen in two days. Smells like a PR push.

Granted that the USS Ford has so many new technologies that it is in effect a laboratory for re-training Nimitz-class seamen, but this is just another shortfall.

Maybe I'm missing something, or mis-interpretating something, but they should, at this point, be revising maintenance manuals, not writing them.

"I wish we’d be hearing and reading more of what comes after Trump."

Repubs can run any of several decent candidates.
But I'd like see that candidate's VP nominee be ... Donald John Trump.

OMG that would be sweet ...

Good morning JOM and thanks.

Quiet in here with the Iowa caucus thing tomorrow.

No shadow for the groundhog, so Chiefs win the Super Bowl, Biden insults another Iowa, and spring comes early.

FB blocked me for 24 hours for posting the joke plug in ring cartoon from Powerline. LOL Also sent me a notice saying someone thought I was suicidal with ideas how to get help.

Biden will probably talk about how great it is to be with the great people of Idaho. Paste eater for sure.

The Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, don’t want justice when pushing the Impeachment Hoax, they only want to destabilize the Republican Party so they can do better in the 2020 election, & that includes the House & Senate. They are playing with the people by taking it this far!

I dont get those design choices, doesnt having more aircraft on the deck make them more vulnerable in the event of a df 21 attack

Mini Mike is part of the Fake News. They are all working together. In fact, Bloomberg isn’t covering himself (too boring to do), or other Dems. Only Trump. That sounds fair! It’s all the Fake News Media, and that’s why nobody believes in them any more.

Many of the ads you are watching were paid for by Mini Mike Bloomberg. He is going nowhere, just wasting his money, but he is getting the DNC to rig the election against Crazy Bernie, something they wouldn’t do for @CoryBooker
and others. They are doing it to Bernie again, 2016.

Mini Mike is now negotiating both to get on the Democrat Primary debate stage, and to have the right to stand on boxes, or a lift, during the debates. This is sometimes done, but really not fair!

Narciso

I told you i saw 13 hours last night, dubbed in soanish, and it depicted how i thought thr attack came, they made a stylistic choice and didnt show the visit to the turkish ambassador.

Narciso

They should make a smLlee well armed ship with radar avoidance and better weapons package.

And for god sakes you dont air your assessments in the clear. Do these people knoe anything.

Quiet in here with the Iowa caucus thing tomorrow.

What happened to the California pledge to be first? Has Squaw Grey Beaver done the traditional ethanol dance of her tribe?

Great Pieces, Clarice.

Now a little Florida senior citizen humor:

(1)
A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlor in Juno
Beach , and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool.
After catching his breath he ordered a banana split.
The waitress asked kindly, 'Crushed nuts?'
'No,' he replied, 'hemorrhoids.

(2)
A little old lady was sitting on a park bench in The Villages, a
Florida Adult community.
A man walked over and sits down on the other end of the bench.
After a few moments, the woman asks, 'Are you a stranger here?'
He replies, 'I lived here years ago.'
'So, where were you all these years?'
'In prison,' he says.
'Why did they put you in prison?'
He looked at her, and very quietly said, 'I killed my wife.'
'Oh!' said the woman. 'So you're single...?!'

Captain Hate

Ordinarily I would be opposed to ridiculing short people except Bloomberg is such an obnoxious turd needing to be flushed away that all's fair.

On the topic of the Senators from the South comment that Taranto ridiculed: it should be pointed out that 100% of the House members who voted to impeach Mr Trump are members of the party that founded the Ku Klux Klan after they lost the Civil War. In other words, the Coup Clutz Clan are just carrying out their history with a new spelling.

Narciso

Justified killing, yes 100 demerits for harwood.

Insty round up:
First death outside China for corona virus (Philippines).
Infection rate predicted to go exponential.

Interesting phrase in WaPo, I guess this is how they mention Taiwan but kowtow to China:
"There are almost 14,400 confirmed cases of coronavirus in China, including 10 on the self-governing island of Taiwan"
Self governing island, eh?

ELECTION BOMBSHELL:

Mitt Romney would have a real shot at beating President Trump in a Republican Primary if...

95% to 97% of Republicans did not love President Trump and 95%-97% of Republicans did not despise Mitt Romney.

This thread is a good summation of what's wrong with the House's case against President Trump.

Reading about "happy to be quarantined" Americans in the 9:30 post above
Jim sunny--is the self-quarantine your wife is doing meaning that none of you are leaving the house until her two weeks of possible incubation are up?

That is a WHOLE lot of togetherness!

France is more to handle than England is. Dominating.
