This was Guilfoyle first big event since she became national finance director. Sources in room say goal was $10 mill and they told crowd of more than 300 people making calls that they hit more than double. New limit for individual donor is over $500k.

Big fundraising day for Trump, I'm told

About 300 Trump allies - including Bossie, Gaetz, Lewandowski, Ronna McDaniel, Don Jr., Kimberly Guilfoyle - gathered at Mar-a-Lago for a donor "call day"

About $25 million raised for Trump Victory fundraising account

You are probably right but I would like to think that facts matter. Of course they do not to the Democrats media allies but I think it would be good to give some ammunition to those fighting the spin.

Allow me a moment to thank—and this may be a bit of a surprise—Adam Schiff. Were it not for his crack investigation skills, @realDonaldTrump might have had a tougher time unearthing who all needed to be fired. Thanks, Adam! 🤣 #FullOfSchiff

The betting markets tend not to be all that good at predicting election outcomes.

I disagree, Theo, in my experience those putting money on a proposition get it better than pollsters or people talking around the water cooler.

it looks like the Senate holds.

At this point in time, bettors say that's a lock; picking up the House is the challenge.

A major league Friday Night Massacre would be for DJT to revoke all federal employee union membership. I wish he could do that. Then he do some real firing.

Elliott

I view Romney's impeachment decision, along with McCain's thumbs down a few years ago, as alluringly literary political moments. To the perennial theme of a rift between the party leadership and the electorate, they offer us psychodrama—an evidently personal feud between the standard bearers from 2008 and 2012 and their successor—that was entirely lacking for example in failure of immigration reform to overcome the hurdle of cloture during the George W. Bush administration. From that perspective, in spite of my agreement with Henry about the downsides of political dynasties, provided the current fiancée makes it to the altar, I can't imagine a more intriguing future general election matchup than Donald Trump, Jr. vs. Gavin Newsom.

henry

Elliott, only one gives satisfaction.

Elliott, it would serve to reinforce we have a ruling class, that’s for sure.

Joe Biden got the first question of tonight’s debate in New Hampshire and he used his time to admit he’s going to lose:

.@JoeBiden gets the first question of the night and acknowledges that he’s not likely to win in New Hampshire.

They're not generating excitement because they prefer operating in the dark and quiet. If unexamined, they can get away with theft, corruption, even murder.

They just gave "The Rat" Pete 3 whole minutes to go on a monologue. And now they're asking him a second question.

Concur. Bernie's explicit socialism, while foundational to progs, is also recognized as an electoral Burmese tiger trap for Dems.
On top of that, Bernie's old school socialism, while foundational, has been eclipsed by the intersectional, diversity alphabet people.
And so, just as their first black candidate was a clean, articulate, non threatening mulatto, their first queer candidate is going to be a Navy veteran Potsy Webber with chipmunk cheeks and not a spiked dog collar to be seen.
I can see Trump having some problems with the sanctimonious, creepy little geek at first but eventually burying him, if the economy stays strong. I could also see Trump hitting some historic black vote numbers if the economy stays strong and the Dems nominate a lily white Butt Pirate. Watching a desperate Petey with his pants ridin low and his Snoop shades on try to busta rhyme to pander could be pretty epic.

How come Bernie never talks about living in a dirt floor maple sugar shack with a bunch of hippies? Isn't that an inspiring story,like Abe Lincoln living in a log cabin? :)

Ignatz,

Mayor Pete has some black former constituents who are putting videos on Twitter which talk about what a terrible mayor he was.

In addition, he has a habit of insulting Trump voters, which is pretty off-putting.

This election will be the electric kool-aid acid test of media power.
If the economy is strong and Trump loses anyway, it will be almost completely a media caused phenomenon.
I consider it unlikely that will occur but just imagine Trump's numbers had he Barry's hagiographic butt sniffers.
The media are truly the enemy of the people in that they have abdicated their responsibility as a counterweight to the state and are now the fiercest advocates of an unbridled, one-party autocracy, even while bleating dishonestly about unconstitutional dictator Trump.
And Theo doesn't think these traitors need shooting.

Theo

The dust up about women of color leaving Warren’s campaign might illustrate the problem of diversity for diversity’s sake. Reading the complaints of these women one cannot rule out the possibility that they were hired to check a box rather than for their skills and that they are very miffed that they were not given meaningful roles that their experience and talents did not indicate they were qualified to handle. Maybe not. Maybe the Warren campaign is just prejudiced against black women.

But one of the many flaws of socialism is the assumption that everyone is interchangeable with everyone else and that talent is distributed equally among everyone.
