This is incredible team building. I absolutely love this man!

Tom R

I don’t understand why this is the hill you are fighting on while Trump’s speech seems to be so much more important.

Now you sound like a Democrat trying to blame me for responding to something you posted. No reason for this to continue. You admitted Trump rejected the Birther nonsense so that is all that really matters.

Once Trump is finished I will point out some new info regarding Comey I haven't seen mentioned here yet.

Threadkiller

He plans on making Kevin McCarthy speaker of the house.

Barbara

Good for Senator Mike Lee!

Theo

On the issue of DJT not expecting to win, he said so in a speech in Wisconsin in December 2016. I don’t know how to link stuff here but it was reported at Politico and other places.

But this is a sideshow. Whether DJT was surprised at his victory or not is not important. The main point is that *I* was shocked as hell. I fully confess that i never expected him to win. I was quite obviously mistaken. You can take that into account in trusting my political judgments.

Porch — it sounds like we agree that polls are not worthless my point remains that they are better than anecdotes.

TomR — you are right that the internal polls tend to be better than the public ones because the campaigns usually spend a lot more money on them. You are also right that low response rates are a problem for contemporary polling. But public polls are still a valuable indication of public opinion as long as one has a salt shaker handy. They are not precision instruments but not worthless either.

Threadkiller

No reason for this to continue.

I am glad you finally admitted this. Real progress, Tom!

Hope you can stick to it this time.

TK, these T_D commenters agree with you about team building:

[–]Subaru_Kayak 18 points 3 minutes ago

40 years I've been watching politics and I've never seen anything like this. We use to do talks like this with our 1st Sgt where we sit around and he gives us the scoop, talks about who did good, what's all bad, and where we are in the big picture.

We are witness to something extraordinary.

I've never seen anything like this... he is thanking the people who supported them in front of the world..

this is how you build an army that'll die for you... forget it DNC, you are through....


My only regret for this week is not taking off work so I could watch every minute.

A +1 to Gaetz. If Trump can forgive him, then so can I.

porch, 12:10, based on recent lengthy discussions--don't bother.
He's cut from the same cloth as TomR, so there's no point in trying to present facts that counter his opinion.

Thanks, TK. I'll watch later tonight with beers.

It's good to be following along with all the supporters, here and at T_D.

OK. I'm calling it. This is the most epic political speech I've ever witnessed live... In my life. No teleprompter. No script. Just master story telling, infused with comedy and razor sharp criticism of the corrupt Washington establishment. Legendary.

Devin Nunes heralded as the first guy who knew something was wrong.

Captain Hate

The quarantine is for this exact reason - to keep interested folks from finding the forum.

henry will surely have a good laugh at my naïveté but the unmasking of the totalitarian nature of these platform providers has been shocking to me. I always knew IT types included a bunch of spiteful dickweeds from the comments directed at Gates, who's no prize himself, and his early successes; but I thought they were smart enough to keep their worst impulses better hidden.

Melinda

CH-

There's a "Hold My Beer!" moment coming from them in due course.

Porchlight

They used to keep them hidden, Cap'n, but they've been emboldened by Google and all the rest and figure now they have cover.

Looking around, it's hard to think they aren't correct in their reasoning. At least in the short term.

Texas Liberty Gal

When he talked about going into dungeons I knew it was going to be Nunes

That said, I highly recommend getting an account and subscribing to T_D. It is like a whole new world. And it may very well be nuked sometime between now and November, so time is short.

Talking about Hunter Biden - they think it's okay - hell my kids could make a fortune.Is Ivanka here?

Think what we could have done if the same energy was put into infrastracture, prescription drug prices.

TOTAL ACQUITTAL!

Kevin McCarthy - boy did you do an incredible job! You are going to be Speaker of the House because of this impeachment hoax!

People are very angry at Pelosi. Nadler has been fighting me my whole life. These people have gone stone cold crazy!

These are great warriors, - names a bunch too fast for me.

More spirit now for Republicans than democrats. Iowa - democrats can't count votes but they want to run your healthcare! The spirit for the Republican Party is stronger than it's ever been.

Doug Collins, Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan - NCAA wrestling champion in college, I had the NCAA champs here - walked up with Jim and it was like I wasn't here they were so excited to meet him. Debbie Lesko. Mark Meadows - I like his wife better than him because she supported me before he did. They all worked to elect me like their lives were at stake. Also Ron DeSantos, Governor of FL. Mike Johnson of LA, The other sides's worse nightmare - the hardest worker and the most legitimate human being - they tried to destroy him because he supported me - Devin Nunes!!!! (Standing ovation)

Scott Perry, John Ratcliffe a great lawyer, a man whose is braver than me and braver than everyone in the room - Steve Scalise. You are better looking now than before the accident! (Standing ovation) Talks about the cops who came to help. Tells a funny story about Scalise playing again 6 months ago.

Alise! You are amazing and I'll always be your friend - what a great future you have.

Michael Taylor, Brad Wenstrup, Lee Zelkin, Louie Gohmert.

A great group of warriors!

What did Mark Meadows say? The White House feed didn't have a mike on him.

Tom R

Trump just said 99% of the FBI are good guys and it was just the senior management that was corrupt. Isn't that what Wray has also been saying?

henry

Now Romney getting a thrashing.

Threadkiller

Meadows said that the people there are a small representation of the total support Trump actually has.

Threadkiller

Isn't that what Wray has also been saying?

Who cares?

Jane

Talks about "the lovers" Lisa and Peter. "There is no way he gets elected, but I'm afraid we can't take the risk" That's where the insurance policy came up. If I won they were going to try and overthrow the government of the US. And if I didn't fire James Comey we would never have found out.

IMO these are the crookedest most dishonest people I've ever seen.

They deleted all of their emails and text messages, illegally. I love the FBI but it was the top scum and the FBI people don't like the top scum. These are all dirty people - and I just heard that are suing the USA. We cannot let this happen to our country.

This is a day of celebration. We went thru hell. Crying Chuck and Pelosi will keep trying to destroy our country.

Mark Meadows speaks but I can't hear him.

Digs Romney again. Quotes lying Pelosi.

If we can put this genius to work on roads and highways and bridges. we've done so much without bipartisanship. Imagine what we can do with it.

He apologizes to his family and hugs Ivanka. Thanks them for sticking with him. "We are doing things for our great people who everyone said couldn't be done"!!!!

Buckeye

No, he said the top 1% was scum.

And I haven’t seen a fucking thing that proves Wray isn’t in that scum bucket.

Speaking of which you win the popular culture war one battle at a time. The most recent Blue Bloods had a story about a controversial law where defense attorneys would be provided personal data on prosecution witnesses who preferred to remain anonymous until testifying, a not very subtle swipe at the stupid bail changes in New York. Tom Selleck is a MAGA guy and it's hard to imagine him not approving this line of attack.

Talking about how he saved himself by firing Comey, then segued that into talking about catching the dirty cops. He specifically did not include Comey in the dirty cops, but most people would not catch the semantics

What fun that was!

LOVE that he recognized MRS. Mark Meadow's role in his election. I think I posted the article where I learned that she kept Mark on a bus the Saturday after after Pussy Tape was released, and traveled the state as planned, supporting DJT.

I also have had great faith in Burr ultimately prosecuting some of the guilty just from watching MRS.. Burr at his confirmation hearing.
No doubt in my mind that she's had enough of these sanctimonious, lying Leftists.

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

I am glad you saw that. By the way, down in the comments someone says that the DNC had approved an extra-large compensation plan for when Perez leaves right after Iowa.

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/rubycramer/tom-perez-dnc-compensation

Porchlight

How do you recanvas a caucus? Caucuses count people, not ballots. Are they calling for a straight up do-over?

John S

that was a great, warm performance by the president. He has a lot of great supporters in congress. Several times he alluded to what will be coming up as far as getting to the bottom of it. I sure hope he delivers on that

MissMarple2

Porchlight,

From what I gathered they were going to re-add the numbers on those tabulation sheets like were on that thread I posted last night.

Looks like a lot of people think that is crooked as hell and are having none of it.

Captain Hate

the DNC had approved an extra-large compensation plan for when Perez leaves right after Iowa.

The Bernie Bros should go Wild in the Streets over that. You can't be more obvious on a setup like that.

I’m hearing a very strong rumor that Barack Obama is going to be endorsing Elizabeth Warren really soon and that there’s a growing rift between him and Biden over Obama choosing to not support Joe.

Porchlight

Cap'n, that plus Butty's investment in the Shadow app. And a bunch of other crap.

Let's see your stuff Bernie Bros.

MM, I really don't get any of the methodology. Remember Hilldog accused Obama people of shenanigans in Iowa (and other state caucuses) in 2008. I believed it then, I really believe it now.

Porchlight

Maybe so, henry.

Porchlight

How long was the presser? 90 plus minutes?

Not a politician in America could do what Trump just did, and I didn't even really get to watch. ;)

If Obama is going to endorse Warren he better do it before New Hampshire or there is no point.

I'm all for it. Let's have total Dem war.

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

Is this not great? I am enjoying their disintegration so much!

By the way, bad times are coming for some people, regardless of what Ledgers think. President Trump actually cares about people, and the people who got hurt professionally or financially due to their connection with him really bothered him, not to mention their families.

I am sure Strzok and Page aren't going to catch a break, judging from how he talks about them.

Captain Hate

Chuck Todd: "He didn't thank Lamar Alexander. " And an earlier dude "He didn't thank Susan Collins"

They really don't get it, so they. These people live in an alternate reality.

I think the Bernie Bros will interpret the “re canvass” as an attempt to head off or at least delay the now otherwise likely “Bernie Wins Iowa” headlines that the current count is leading to.

A poll shows 53% of Bernie supporters say they are not certain to vote for the Dem nominee if it is not Bernie.

If I were 10 years younger I would be sending in an application!

I'm counting on TK to enlighten me on anything the loon prosecutor has to say, assuming his supervisor hasn't ordered mandatory treatment behind doors that lock from the outside.

Gaylord supporting any of those losers won't be an outlier from past merde touches. But he won't be able to stay out of it.

Porch @ 1:48 —

Totally agree.

Warren is currently polling fourth in NH. An Obama endorsement would help her but I doubt it would help her that much. Obama is likely smarter than that. Bloomberg is the real hope of the Dem establishment to stop Bernie.

MissMarple2

Porchlight,

The President has put the entire talk/press conference on his Twitter page.

James D.

I’m hearing a very strong rumor that Barack Obama is going to be endorsing Elizabeth Warren really soon and that there’s a growing rift between him and Biden over Obama choosing to not support Joe.

Joe was his #2 guy for eight years. The fact that Obama hasn't endorsed him already speaks volumes.

Thanks for the heads up, anonamom. I'll check the radars. So far I've just gotten a flash flood warning on my phone. It's been pouring here since last night, but not a lot of wind so far. I'm probably tempting fate, but it's amazing how many storms split about 20 miles west of me and pass by north and south of my strange little vortex. I do have a couple of hard hats and mega batteries down in the basement, though, and fortunately, even when the electricity goes, I very rarely lose my internet.

Alas, I'll be spending a lot of time today upstairs trying to staunch a leaking skylight. I've discovered that caulking an active drip is not very effective!

Since TK is a big fan of Sundance combined with his blog having a functional search engine here is a link to Sundance's articles involving James Baker.

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/?s=james+baker

Based on all the Spygate related articles I have seen since the scandal broke, the evidence clearly supports the conclusion that James Baker was a key member of the Obama criminal cabal and intimately involved in the FISA abuse scandal. Baker was one of the first guys involved with FISA abuse that Wray got rid of.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/fbis-top-lawyer-said-to-be-reassigned/2017/12/21/2ac76640-e6b5-11e7-833f-155031558ff4_story.html

In regards to "Komey Kabuki", if there is evidence McCabe and Baker were allied against Comey would that be enough to point the needle in the direction that the real story behind Comey may not be what we think it is?

Oh great; just tried to check my regional weather radar at NOAA:

A VERIZON COMMUNICATION OUTAGE HAS IMPACTED THE DISSEMINATION OF RADAR PRODUCTS FROM KFCX.

NOAA does thoughtfully inform me that we've got a Tornado Watch till 6:00 pm and a Flood Warning till 8:00. Hopefully I won't have a story like Stephanie's to share. Yikes! and Double Yikes! Fortunately, I do live far enough uphill to avoid major flooding, and I pretty much always have enough supplies on hand to last till flooded roads drain off.
