Funny I didn't see the name Carter Page there, maybe it's behind the paywall. And Manafort was pretty late in the game, well after Obama starting spying on Trump. But whatever ...

My response to TM:

If you think a Biden win wouldn't embolden the progressives like AOC, you haven't been paying attention to the congressional races where the AOC backed candidates are cleaning up. They will move further left - fast.

Are there any centrist Dems?

Apparently TM, for one.

Old Lurker

Steph, this was my willowed response:

TM "Biden surely remembers Gingrich '94 and Boehner '10."

Is TM sure Biden remembers what he had for dinner last night?

Or is he banking on the notion that when the short term memory goes bye-bye, for a short time some patients retain some long term memory for awhile longer?

Otherwise, the fantasy that there even exist "Centrist Dems" is an equally sick joke. There are more Unicorns.

BLM will have occupied all the houses in Darien before any of that happens.

Volume 5:
(U) While this Volume did not find evidence of collusion between President Trump and the Russians, it does detail a stunning accounting of the FBl's sloppy work and poor judgment. In 2016, the Democratic Party, using a series of arm's length transactions, hired a foreign citizen to seek out dirt on a political opponent, provided by foreign sources. This Volume confirms that Christopher Steele used information gained from sources in Russia-some with direct ties to the Russian Government. That unverified, uncorroborated, foreign information was then actively circulated with the press to disparage a U.S. political candidate.

From the last thread, GUS:

I kind of guessed it had to be an old irrelevant drug abusing post modern HIPPY. He sucks.

Well he wrote the song they were playing, so there is some relevance I guess.

I think it was supposed to be some kind of bridge between the Biden generation and the current BLM peeps. Instead it turned out to be the greatest comedy act of the year.

But they're not really centrists. Functionally, they are enablers of the Left. Even cheerleaders, at times.

OLs willowed post, now at 12:07

Yes, it is puzzling to us but there is a cohort of centrists who
1) don't give the Obama spying on Trump any importance
2) don't accept that the entire MSM has placed an embargo over any potential good news for Trump and traditional Americans
3) have stopped searching for other sources of info that might discredit the conventional wisdom
4) believe that 4 years of unremitting lies will do the job and that Prog-Dems, other-Dems, low info voters and the centrist cohort will take the Senate and hold the House at a minimum. And likely will take down Trump as well.

If any of this comes true, by the time that the centrist cohort realizes things are not going well, it will be too late. The Trump coalition will no longer be available to help them recover their freedom. They will live in chains.

Thanks JimSunnyvale.

Those people are really dumb IMO. Fortunately, there is nowhere near the enthusiasm for Biden the fake centrist than there was for Obama the fake centrist. Not even sure there's as much as for Hillary the fake centrist.

Yes. Tokens. Not one has any power in their new chosen party, nor would they ever be allowed to. Someone called them Vichy Republicans, which sounds about right to me.

Could Jeff Flake run a successful campaign as a Democrat? Justin Amash? Kasich? Nope. But some of them get the high honor to speak at the DNC clown show. Their Moms must be so proud.

Gack. I miss when the freak show at the county fair was INSIDE A TENT and not on the Midway for all to see.

Hell, even the ping pong ball stripper had the modesty to do her thing inside the tent and not in a bathtub before interviewing a presidential candidate for the world to see.

Although, it would have been funny as hell to see the PP ball stripper accidentally shoot out a ball with Trump on it instead of Biden.

The fact that the poobahs who ran the Democrat KlanKlave in Milwaukee last night chose to sign off with Steven Stills 1966 "For What It's Worth" signals just one thing. The Democrats are fully on board with the rioting, looting and destruction in our cities.

Stills wrote that song as an anthem to the 1966 counterculture protests on Sunset Strip. Are these clowns aware of that? They might as well have signed off with the Internationale.

May dad passed away peacefully about 3 this morning with mom and my siblings both there. I stayed away in part to make a stretch of rules more possible as I did not need the visual to come to terms with what was happening.

Just got the obit done and it should be in tomorrow's Marietta paper and then ATL on Thursday. I went a route to capture who he was.

Mom could not be talked out of having funeral at her church so I told her hubby would just meet us a cemetery since he is in high-risk group. Already heard something similar from a number of cousins.

Thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts. Mom still has not gone to bed which I am worried about.

This is why I am so frustrated with the nevertrumpers. Because they are allowing their dislike of Trump's style and "ickyness" to lead them to support people who will cheer when the mob burns their houses down, and drags them or their kids out of their cars and beats the crap out of them.

I will never understand it. I mean, how willfully blind can a person be?

A Biden conservative is like a woman who is a little bit pregnant.

And how or more importantly why would anyone wish to build a bridge to people who say they want to abolish the police, endorse openly Marxist movements and violence, believe in the most bizarre fables and lies about the past and describe us as hateful, irredeemable bigots?
Building a bridge to those kind of people is like letting down the drawbridge when the barbarian hordes come knocking.

There is something here that isn't discussed much. In my experiences with someone like my brother there is a psychological component to the nevertrumpers at work. Most fancy themselves eminently reasonable and flexible; nuanced, supple thinkers. But what that often means is they're people pleasers and 'soy boys' to use the current lingo.
The disordered [ideologues] have powerful ways of manipulating such people. Create a bogeyman [Trump] and declare not only him but anyone who supports him outside the club, the group or the in crowd. When the disordered hold the institutions and the culture in their grip, the club is 'decent' society. And so the people pleaser always seeks to placate and align himself with the squeakiest wheel because calm and reasonableness and lack of conflict and disapproval is what they value above all. That's a relatively harmless proclivity in relatively harmless groups and relatively reasonable times.
It is the height of folly, disastrous, irrational and close to insane in times like these of crisis and the open push for raw, undemocratic power.
People pleasers like Bret Stephens are a tolerable luxury in a land of milk and honey and times of tranquility. They are dangerous dupes when societal pressure demands that a man keep his head when all around him are losing theirs.
It is an intellectual conceit and probably a lack of self awareness that prompts him to present his position as the principled political stance of a reasonable man. In fact it has almost nothing to do with principles or politics and is instead a subconscious psychological reaction to being manipulated into supporting people and ideas he would not normally support because it's safer and easier than sticking up for what he claims to believe in. And so they advance nonsensical, oxymoronic ideas like "Biden conservative" and believe they sound rational and even sage in the approval and social safety they seek.
Safety is the mother of sophistry.

From the more things change department;
HL Mencken;

" The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can’t get and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is sort of an advance auction sale of stolen goods."

Iggy, Lauren Ancel is a buddy who as a student spent a couple summers as a house guest while interning at NSA and NIH. She's a bright mathematician.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

A few more useful Mencken quotes; the lastbeing particularly cogent for thwe present era;

” Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.”

” Sometimes the idiots outvote the sensible people.”

” People do not expect to find chastity in a whorehouse. Why, then, do they expect to find honesty and humanity in government, a congeries of institutions whose modus operandi consists of lying, cheating, stealing, and if need be, murdering those who resist?”

” The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”
