You are full blown cult followers of this man, who has not one single redeeming characteristic, and you think you have morals? You think you have values?

Fuck off + die.

General Discussion / Treason
« on: October 06, 2018, 01:02:34 PM »

No one really expected President Donald Trump, who benefited from Russia’s 2016 election interference, to counter that hostile regime’s active measures: Russia wanted him to win, and when they hacked, he invited them to hack more.

But America should have been able to rely on a united Congress to ensure that our next elections aren’t just as vulnerable if not moreso. Instead, due to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ persistent and pernicious obstruction, America has been spectacularly let down.

Just last week, hours before the Republican-led House recessed for six weeks, Nunes broke out his shovel yet again to bury even deeper the evidence of Russian interference, once again demonstrating there’s no distance he won’t go to protect this president.

Nunes and committee Republicans had promised that the American people would see our interview transcripts after the investigation was completed. When they abruptly ended the investigation without calling dozens of relevant witnesses, they voted to conceal the transcripts.

Suddenly, last month, Nunes agreed to release them. Perhaps he was worried about the burgeoning campaign of his Democratic opponent — a local prosecutor named Andrew Janz, whose argument to the voters includes powerful evidence of Nunes’ efforts to poison the Russia investigation.

But predictably, at a hearing last week on releasing the transcripts, Nunes still wouldn’t allow real transparency.

Committee Democrats asked to immediately send the transcripts to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who hasn’t been allowed to see them under Nunes’ rules. There’s good reason to believe many witnesses committed perjury or offered information relevant to the special counsel’s work. But Nunes opposed it, and it was voted down.

Committee Democrats then moved to have the transcripts released to the public immediately — after a 10-day intelligence community review — to avoid any selective release or other political manipulation. Again, Nunes opposed this.

This is his modus operandi. Though incomplete due to Republican obstruction, our investigation did reveal worrisome contacts between the Russians and candidate Trump, his family, his businesses, and his campaign. Yet every time we sought to learn more, we were blocked.

We sought to test witnesses’ accounts by subpoenaing third-party records such as cell phone, bank and travel records. Republicans refused to allow it.

To arrange the infamous June 9, 2016 Trump Tower meeting, Donald Trump Jr. called his Russian contact, then called a blocked number, and then called his Russian contact back. We had evidence from other witnesses that Donald Trump used a blocked number. Republicans refused to pursue whether it was the same number.

The Republicans ran a “take them at their word” investigation when most of the Trump team clearly didn’t deserve that benefit of the doubt. So at last week’s hearing, I moved to subpoena many of the records that could fill a lot of the gaps. Nunes nixed it.

General Discussion / Extraordinary Numbers
« on: October 05, 2018, 12:11:03 AM »

Anger among women over Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court is threatening to turn what’s already a gender gap in a number of California congressional races into an anti-GOP chasm, a new Democratic-backed poll has found.

In four Republican-held districts in and around Orange County, women say they are dramatically less likely to back GOP candidates if Kavanaugh is confirmed, according to a poll done by Change Research for the Democratic group Fight Back California and the California Labor Federation.

“These are extraordinary numbers,” said Katie Merrill, chief strategist for Fight Back California. “Kavanaugh is a very powerful factor in swing districts, especially among suburban women.”

Merrill’s political action committee, founded by former East Bay Democratic Rep. Ellen Tauscher, is working to flip GOP-held California congressional seats. The seven or more targeted districts in the state make up a major chunk of the 23 seats nationwide that Democrats need to take control of Congress.


The outstanding question of the last two years — for which we're soon get an answer — is whether all the liberal rage at the election of President Donald Trump will actually lead to a "blue wave" in the 2018 midterm elections.

There is history behind the supposition: In every election since 1946 when the president’s approval rating is under 50 percent at the time of a midterm, the party that controls the White House has lost an average of 37 seats in the House of Representatives. And, in 2010, Democrats lost 63 seats and control of the House, while 2014 saw them lose their majority in the Senate along with 13 seats in the House. Most polls suggest 2018 will not be an outlier for the president's party.

The GOP faces an existential question: Can our party be saved from itself?

Some Republicans have suggested that this year will be different — even going so far as to declare a “red wave” forming. Once again, they are discounting the polls and pollsters who suggested in 2016 that Trump could never win as little more than "fake news." Such is the disconnect that an internal Republican National Committee poll in September found that 57 percent of strong Trump supporters and a majority of Republicans believe that Democrats will not take back the House of Representatives — potentially indicating that said voters may feel no particular urgency to head to the polls in November. Denying the reality shown by the polls and screaming “fake news” may well come back to bite the hand that fed it.

But, unmentioned in the debate over who will vote and in what numbers has been voter registration data, which provides a solid glimpse into the mindset and enthusiasm levels of Americans heading into November’s midterm elections. Compiling publicly available data from several states in the nation over the past month shows results that should deeply concern Republicans: Several states with key races are showing a noticeable surge in voter registrations when compared to prior midterm election cycles.

General Discussion / Wave watch: The blue wave is growing
« on: October 04, 2018, 04:45:40 PM »

The signs of a "blue wave" are adding up, and barring some dramatic shift in the next five weeks, it's likely to be more than enough to wipe out the Republican majority in the House — and the Senate may not be out of reach either.

Why it matters: Democrats only need 23 seats to win the House.

    More Democratic challengers have out-raised Republican incumbents and candidates than ever before — including in at least 73 House races for open seats, which are traditionally easier to flip.
    More Democrats turned out in House primaries than Republicans this cycle — the first time that has happened since 2008.
    Democrats have had a double-digit lead over Republicans in the generic congressional ballot in the last month.
    Cook Political Report now rates 42 GOP-held seats as toss-up or worse. In 2010, there were 36 Democratic-held seats rated this way.
    Republicans are pulling TV ads for vulnerable GOP incumbents in places like Kansas, Pennsylvania and Colorado.

The other side: "There's a big fundamental advantage for Republicans that is often overlooked," said Republican National Committee spokesman Michael Ahrens. "Democrats simply do not have the infrastructure and ground game to get people to the polls. The entire Democratic machine was focused on 9 House special elections and they still went 1-8."

    There's also the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation fight — which Republicans think they can use to target red-state Senate Democrats who might be damaged by their opposition to him.

The bottom line: Here's where a Republican strategist — who's worked on midterm campaigns for multiple cycles — pegged the 2018 midterm elections:

    The strategist told me that in 2010, the magic polling number to determine Dem losses was just under 50%. "If you're not a Republican who is comfortably over 47% you are going to lose."
    Based on that formula, 22 House Republicans would lose their seats to Democrats, according to NYT/Siena College polls.
    Four more Republicans are above 47% but at or under 50%, suggesting even more GOP losses.
    The strategist added: "In a wave year, once you're tied there isn't a way to turn that tide." Eleven of the 22 races polled by NYT are tied or within one percentage point.

General Discussion / Law Professors Condemn Kavanaugh
« on: October 04, 2018, 12:21:21 AM »

More than 500 law professors from nearly 100 law schools around the nation have signed a letter to the U.S. Senate to say that the volatile temperament Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh displayed on Thursday as he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee disqualifies him from sitting on the nation’s highest court.

“We regret that we feel compelled to write to you to provide our views that at the Senate hearings on Thursday, September 27, 2018, the Honorable Brett Kavanaugh displayed a lack of judicial temperament that would be disqualifying for any court, and certainly for elevation to the highest court of this land,” the letter says.

General Discussion / New York Times $413 Million and Tax Fraud
« on: October 03, 2018, 10:31:36 AM »
I was correct. Of course I was correct, it was not a $1 million loan. It was probably more than $413 million and the liar was $9 billion in debt after Atlantic City and he was bought by Putin and Russian organized crime.

I am not so great, pointing out the obvious. It is all obvious. Unindicted Co-Conspirator is a grifter. He is a pathological liar. He is a fraud. He is incompetent. He has no moral compass. He is an unreconstructed racist and a misogynist and a narcissist with no redeeming qualities.

I am not so great, pointing out the obvioua, but what the fuck is wrong with "conservatives?" When areies too much? When is treason too much? When is racism no longer a reason to excuse someone?

You "conservatives" are scum, and I don't have enough words to adequately condemn you. You are Nazis. You are fascists. You are the absolute worst examples of our species. You are filth. You are.vermin. You are.a millstone around our necks.

I really don't care that Pepsi tolerates you. I don't have an issue with Pepsi even with his petty shot at me. Yeah, I caught it. It is irrelevant. Personally I would not provide a forum for liars but that is me, not Pepsi. I don't condemn him or criticize him for it and he does afford me an opportunity to express my contempt and disgust at all of you. If that is what Pepsi deems as "success" that is not illegal, unethical, nor immoral. I asked Pepsi and he didn't quite answer. Ok, he does not have to answer to me but understand that my condemnation is aimed at you people, you miserable and worthless "conservatives."

You support a liar and a fraud and a racist because you are nothing but liars, frauds, and racists yourselves. Unindicted Co-Conspirator is not the problem. He is nothing but a projection of the ugly filth that is you people.

Fuck off + die.

Pepsi, these people have absolutely nothing to say. They come here and post either right wing propaganda or really stupid insults. I understand that in the past you had the noble intent of providing a place where you could debate "conservatives," and I see you making a noble effort here. I also see Spacecadet making a noble effort, to absolutely no avail. What's the point? If you and I wanted to be disinformed we would go to FoxNews and Breitbart ourselves.

There is really nothing to say to these idiots other than fuck off + die, or offering them bum bum pics. Or I can keep calling them what they are, which is morons. But am I interested in a lecture from kats on his idea of "psychology 101?" Are you?  I took real college classes in psychology so I don't see any need to take in dumbassery from an affected twit like kats, let alone allow myself to get sucked into his nonsense.

And then there is Mornac talking in circles. As for Holly, Caroline, and Observer I don't see most of their crap but what I do see when someone sane quotes them shows me  that they are useless too. Observer can't post anything other than the same stupid insults over and over and over. And while I know that fuck off + die and you are a moron is the same insult, it's an honest and appropriate response to these idiots and their lies.

I understand your idea of limited moderation, but what is the point of engaging with pathological liars and cult followers? I would engage them if there was a point, but there really is no point. They need to meet certain standards or talking to them is useless. Holding them to standards is not unfair, unreasonable, or mean.

What else is new? I'm sure we will get another delusional claim of victory.

General Discussion / Unindicted Co-Conspirator Caves To Putin Again
« on: September 21, 2018, 08:52:37 AM »

In early September, experts from a number of the member states gathered in Russia for the certification event for Russia's Tu-214 Open Skies aircraft, a State Department official told CNN. The US declined to certify the aircraft at the time, citing ongoing discussions in Washington, according to the official.

However, the US reversed course and on Tuesday, "the United States informed all States Parties via formal treaty mechanisms that we will approve the certification of the Russian aircraft," the official said.

A date has not been set for the Russian flight, and neither country has any flights scheduled due to a dispute over whether Russia will allow flights over Kaliningrad, a Russian exclave between Lithuania and Poland where Moscow has a significant military footprint.

On Tuesday, Andrea Thompson, the under secretary of state for arms control and international security, told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that "Russia remains unwilling to lift its illegitimate limits on the distance Open Skies Treaty parties can fly over the strategically sensitive region of Kaliningrad."

"In September 2017, we made clear our commitment to addressing Russia's continued noncompliance with the treaty when we established several reasonable, treaty-compliant measures designed to encourage Russia to resolve its violations," she said. "These measures are in effect and will impact any Russian flights over the United States; they will be reversed if Russia returns to full compliance."
