  1. She's not even trying to be very subtle, she knows she's on camera. Time to throw these neo-Nazis out...this is the Republican Party today.

    Huge Upset!

    Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum beat establishment candidate Gwen Graham in the Dem Primary for Florida Governor by about 2.5%. As of last poll about 2 weeks ago, he was in a distant 3rd place. He did well in north Florida, he won the traditional battleground I-4 corridor, and he crushed Graham in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. Reported turnout in Miami-Dade exceeded the 2016 Presidential primary election...statewide, twice as many Democrats voted as Republicans. Note: closed primaries, Indies couldn't vote. In November, the Sanders-endorsed Gillum goes up against the Trump-endorsed Ron DeSantis, who handily won the Republican primary.

    Will the Republican Party Reject Nazis?

    They got their 2 SCOTUS picks. And their tax cuts. Once they slash Medicare and SS they'll no longer have much use for Trump.

    Yea, Corsi is a lying shitstain. He's one of the Swiftboat guys who was claiming John Kerry's war record was fake, with about the same level of proof as his claim Obama's Kenyan born. IOW, zero. He just pulls that shit out of his ass, and Gullible saps believe him.

  6. LOL! That deserves a thread. Duncan Hunter Says His Indictment Is Part of a Deep-State Witch Hunt Duncan Hunter Says His Indictment Is Part of a Deep-State Witch Hunt https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2018/08/duncan-hunter-indictment-campaign-finance-chris-collins/ Duncan Hunter, the Republican congressman who was indicted Tuesday for illegally spending more than $250,000 in campaign funds on personal expenses—including family vacations and tickets to Irish dance show Riverdance—told an ABC affiliate station in San Diego on Wednesday that he is a victim of the “new Department of Justice” and “the Democrats’ arm of law enforcement.” “It’s happening with [President Donald] Trump and it’s happening with me,” he told 10News before embarking on a fishing trip with a veterans group. “We’re going to fight through it and win and the people get to vote in November…I think they’ve used every dirty trick in the book, so it’ll go to court when they want it to.” “It’s politically motivated,” he said. “It’s the last chance they could do this before the election. This is how they want to win the election. It’s easier doing this than actually running for office.” Here are some of the wildest purchases the Hunters made with campaign funds, according to the indictment: A plane ticket to fly a family member’s rabbit to Washington, DC, for vacation, first reported in early 2017 A $14,000 family trip to Italy for Thanksgiving in 2015. Hunter tried to arrange a tour of a naval base during the trip in an attempt to justify using campaign money. When he learned that a tour wouldn’t be possible, Hunter allegedly told his chief of staff, “Tell the Navy to go f— themselves.” More than $26,600 in family vacation expenses between 2011 and 2015 More than $3,300 worth of fast food Tobacco A nearly $2,000 ticket for a Pittsburgh Steelers game Video games, a purchase which the Hunters later reported as fraudulent to the Federal Election Commission Tickets to the show Riverdance School lunches for their children Makeup

    Kavanaugh confirmation hearings 5 Sep 18

    Only takes 2 Republican 'no' votes to not confirm him. A few Republican Senators up for reelection are in races called 'toss-up' by 538. IIRC , recent polling also showed Kavanaugh having a 37% favorability rating...lowest ever for a SCOTUS nominee. So IMO, it's not a dog and pony show.

    Fear: Trump in the White House

    Apparently Article 25 had been discussed. "Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over."

    Jill Stein funding (no mention of funding by Republicans) " In an e-mail to supporters on June 10, 2015, Stein wrote "I'm preparing to make a big announcement next week." She also challenged her supporters to raise $10,000 in that time period. Two days later on June 12, Stein's campaign sent another e-mail indicating that she had surpassed that goal and raised her fundraising goal to $30,000. Stein noted that she would seek to qualify for matching funds from the federal government by raising at least $5,000 from residents of 20 states before receiving the nomination in 2016. The e-mail indicated that she had already raised more than the requisite amount from residents of California and that Washington State, New York, and others were very close behind.[22] In September, Stein's campaign said they had met the $5,000 mark in five states (California, Florida, Massachusetts, New York, and Washington) and had received at least half of that amount in eight others.[23] As of November 22, 2015, Stein's campaign had surpassed the requisite fundraising totals in at least 9 states. On November 28, Richard Winger of Ballot Access News reported that Stein would likely qualify for the initial public funding before January 1, 2016.[24] However, on January 3, Ballot Access Newsreported that Stein's campaign had only qualified in 13 states. It said that the campaign was trying to qualify in 8 others.[25] On January 8, Stein's campaign announced it had enough contributions to qualify for FEC funds.[26] Nevertheless, the campaign did not submit its request for matching funds and accompanying documentation until March 28, after which the FEC declared Stein eligible for matching funds on April 14, 2016.[27] In January 2017, Stein and her campaign received the final amount of matching funds from the FEC. The final check equaled $134,900. Overall, the campaign received $590,935.39 in matching funds.[28]" Stein got 1.07% of the popular vote, Gary Johnson got 3.28%....over 3X as much. Obviously Trump lost far more votes to the Libertarian Party than Clinton lost to the Green Party.. Clinton got a total of 65,853, 510 votes, which was less than Obama (2008) 69,498,516 and (2012) 65,915,795. Seems pretty clear her problem was not being able to hold the Obama coalition together. Lets look at other elections. 1992, when Bill Clinton won with 43% of the popular vote. George Bush got 37.4%. Ross Perot got 18.9% of the popular vot...it's safe to assume the VAST majority were peeled off the Republican Party. 2000, when Nader got 2,882, 955 popular votes and is widely blamed by Democrats for costing them the election. Pat Buchanan (448,895), Harry Brown (Libertarian - 384,431), and Howard Phillips (Constitution - 98,020) cost GWB 931,346 popular votes, greater than what Gore won the popular vote total by. The Democratic Party has gone to the right of center the past 30 years, directed by the corporatist DLC (Clintons and Gore among founding members). They deliberately abandoned the Left. So whose fucking fault is that? It was a calculated decision that blew up in their face...repeatedly.

    Or it could mean that you much more closely agree with the platform of a Third Psrty candidate. Neither Rs or Ds own our votes. They can try to earn them. If neither does an adequate job of earning your vote, and a Third Party does, then that's the way it is. It's the only way to hold the two major parties accountable.
  12. Yea, Miller texted her and told her to flash the white power signal.... Nazis everywhere came in their pants.

    Meanwhile Americas is flourishing under Trump.

    In some open primary states, the voter can request either a Dem ballot or a Rep ballot when they sign in. Also, some states allow Independant or No Party Affiliation voters to vote in the primary of one of the two major parties. The laws and rules are set by individual states, not the Federal Govt.

    The loony left can't even bridle their TDS ...

    If the eulogists wanted to mention Trump without saying his name, they simply could have used his legal name, Unindicted Co-Conspirator.
