    1982’s Screaming for Vengeance...

    Best Metal Album ever.

    Yup, from beginning to end a great album including the lesser known tracks like Riding on the Wind and Devil's Child.

    I first saw Judas Priest around 1980 at the Palladium in NYC. Iron Maiden warmed up.

    Also saw Priest in 1982 with Maiden as the opening act. My first concert actually. I was like 12. Saw both bands many times over the years since that time. While I am still a fan of JP, I thought their best work was almost everything before Turbo. After that, nothing really stood out that much for me. But I love all the old classics off British Steel, Point of Entry and back into the 70s. Same with Maiden really, I like the older stuff better. Killers is actually my favorite album - love Wrathchild, Murders in the Rue Morgue, etc.

    Unless Mueller will find a way to not charge Podesta to cover for Hillary

    This.

    Mueller is attempting to bring down the Trump admin, he is not going to touch Hillary or anyone near her. Just look at who he has hired for a pretty strong hint at what they are doing.

    The DOJ needs to appoint a special prosecutor for the emails, Uranium One, etc, and staff it with people that Hillary and company need to be afraid of. If Trump does nothing, eventually Mueller is going to come up with some nonsense charges against people very close to Trump (most likely his son) in order to try to impeach him. Trump needs leverage so Hillary's buddies have something to worry about, along with the fact that these things need investigating anyway.

    Whoa. If this guy is charged, then Hill better watch out!

    Hill as in Hillary? There are some people here that are truly living in wishful-thinking land. No Hillary people are going to be indicted by Mueller. Mueller and his people are specifically assembled to bring down Trump. They are a bunch of anti-Trumpers and Democrats out to destroy this administration.

    Trump should have fired Mueller as soon as this nonsense got started - now with a guilty plea and 2 additional people charged it will be near impossibly to shut this witch hunt down.

    Look, if the GOP has done something for you or something that you approve of, by all means, vote for them.

    Done something? Trump is utterly reliant on the RNC for pretty much everything because he can't come close to matching Hillary in fundraising (which is curious considering he said he would be self funding) and has practically no ground game to speak of.

    Without the RNC/GOP, Trump would be dead in the water. He is absolutely reliant on their infrastructure.

    The whole #nevertrump thing is stupid and self defeating, and so is not voting for Republicans down ballot who Trump would no doubt need to pass much of his agenda.

    How’s that National Enquirer story playing? Pretty much exactly as I said, it’s a big nothingburger. Drudge has even demoted it to second tier and soon it will be gone altogether.

    National Enquirer stories are mostly trash, and this one seems no different.

    Drudge seems to have temporarily lost his mind with some of the stuff he is running as headlines. I mean, Bill Clinton’s black lovechild? Please. It would seem he is increasingly relying on Alex Jones loopy InfoWars for stories.

    Almost certainly garbage. Whatever happened to the last 2 huge stories that claimed Cruz was having affairs with women who were easily able to categorically deny it or the one where Cruz’ Dad supposedly had a hand in offing JFK.

    Yes, yes, the Enquirer gets 1 in 10,000 right, but almost everything they print is just trash. And if it were true, the fact it is being reported in the National Enquirer means the rest of the media has license to utterly ignore it.

  • Donald Trump continues to slide in the polls ... (BARF ALERT!!)

    Pretty much how it works. I remember reading the exact same thing in 2008 and 2012. The polls are wrong... the polls are wrong!!! And they weren’t wrong. I believe 538 picked every state..... yet for some reason this year he’s way off. I’m not buying it.

    It sad to see this yet again. And before that ridiculous Long Room unbiased polling was mysteriously taken down (which was nothing more than a redux of 2012's "unskewed polls") people here were buying into that blather too.

    Trump is losing. Period. It is not over yet, but it's quite clear that Trump is not winning at this moment in time. He has 3 weeks and a debate to turn it around. Period. Simple as that.

    This reminds me of a more recent event when Drudge, Breitbart and a few others were reporting in such a way that it appeared Paul Ryan might lose his primary. Using language like "in the race of his life", "hanging on by the smallest of margins", etc, etc. It was all BS. Total and complete BS and utter journalistic malpractice. Ryan won with 85% of the vote. It wasn't even close.

    I’m gonna call BS on all polls from now until the end of this thing.

    Yeah, people did that in 2012 too....didn't work out quite so well.

    Dismissing polls is foolish. Even if they are wrong it is better to operate as if our candidate is the underdog.

    Even if losing, Trump is within striking distance. If he turns in a couple solid debate performances it could change the entire dynamics of the race. Right near the end of a campaign there is sometimes a surge of movement one way or the other - a couple debate wins could push a lot of support to Trump.

    My thoughts exactly. Good man.

    Well, he is a self described leftist looking to make alliances with some of the worst actors on the world stage, so I am not sure that puts in him in the category of "good man".

    It seems like all it takes to win the adulation of many here is to criticize Obama or Hillary. No matter that they are leftist, liberals, totalitarians, etc.

    Really is amazing to watch the hypocrisy. Heck, it wasn't so long ago Julian Assange was regarded as an enemy of our nation, now he's a hero.

    Will be interesting to see how all these views change again after the November election.

    I suppose only you know that secret and Bernie’s people don’t know it. When you have That large a gap it is like the large gaps in “Who won the debates?” They were accurate indicators of Trump’s ultimate success. Take away nothing from this poll at your own peril. If you think it hasn’t been an upsetting factor in Hillaryland I disagree. It also shows a sharp lack of enthusiasm wouldn’t you agree?

    You appear to be the owner of the Coach blog I see posted here quite often. As such, you should KNOW by now that on-line unscientific polls like this are meaningless. If they mattered, Ron Paul would be finishing up his second term as President.

    You also said they block people via IP from multi voting, and without any effort at all I showed that to be utterly false.

    Yes, if on-line polls are always skewing one way then that MIGHT give you some indication of intensity of support, but just like large rallies it does not give you an idea of depth of support - and depth of support is what matters in elections.

    Seriously, you should know this. Perhaps you are just trying to lift people's spirits, but feeding them nonsense is not the answer. It reminds me of what Breitbart was doing leading up to the Ryan v Nehlen vote. If you read Breitbart you'd have thought Ryan was in the race of his life and in danger of being upset by Nehlen. Nothing could have been further from the truth. The race was never close. Breitbart was feeding its readers a pile of steaming BS and of course Nehlen lost by like 75%.

    Trump is lagging in the polls at this time. That is just the fact. All this nonsense about him leading in social media, some dopey website claiming to "un-skew" polls again, etc, are all the same dung we heard in 2012. Trump has plenty of time to turn things around, but rather than lie to people about the state of the race we are better off discussing what can be done to help defeat Hillary. Even if Trump were ahead we should be acting as if he were 10 points down to keep our guard up.

    I think the best way to look at it is this. Trump has been under unprecedented attack - even worse than Sarah Palin got. I have never seen the media go after someone as viciously as they have Trump over the last several weeks. Yet STILL Trump is within striking distance (probably only 7 or 8 points down) and it isn't even Labor Day. The real good news here is likely the "boy who cried wolf" effect. If Trump can survive this, it is very possible that the public might ignore the media attacks in the future.

    Really thanks so much for setting me straight I thought 66k respondents where they blocked your IP address after one vote was worth sometime; but you make a real fine point there, a real fine point ha ha ha.

    I just voted 5 times in a row simply by clearing my cache/history. They are not blocking my IP after each vote.

    These kinds of unscientific on-line polls are utterly and completely useless in determining the state of the race or who will win an election. Really, you should know better than to post this sort of nonsense.

    We Trump supporters now have definitive forensic proof that the polls we are being fed by the large media outlets are universally faked.

    This is an on-line click bait poll. It has no scientific value whatsoever, nor is it "forensic proof" of anything. The fact that Jill Stein is leading Hillary should have been a bright flashing light to you that this poll is worthless. There is no chance at all, in the real world anyway, that the Green Party candidate is ahead of the Democrat Party candidate in the polls.

    Well, Trump won fair and square but your logic is pretty flawed and I have seen this line of thinking repeatedly.

    Do you think Walter Mondale was really the best the Dem’s could put up in 1984 against Reagan? Do you think George McGovern was the best the Democrats could nominate against Nixon in 1972? How about Kerry in 2004? Do you think he was really the best the Democrats could do against Bush?

    Parties don’t always nominate the best candidate for a general election. Sometimes voters in primaries do not prioritize winning the general election above all else. In this primary it seems that immigration and trade policy were more important to primary voters than simply winning a general election.

    THAT’s when I knew Nehlan wasn’t going to win. It was a political move on Trumps part, and it will payoff down the road, but I am disappointed Ryan won.

    Trump's endorsement had nothing whatsoever to do with Ryan winning this primary. Ryan was going to win anyway - and by a huge margin.

    Nehlen lost by like 70%. Every serious poll (ie, not anything from Breitbart) showed Ryan would win in a landslide. Trump would have gained nothing by endorsing a sure loser like Nehlen.

    Nope. It isn’t. These people were around then and were the most accurate in their predictions.

    Nonsense. This site didn't exist 30 years ago, it doesn't even look liked it existed before January. The methodology, such that it exists, is ridiculous. It's the same stupid crap as "Unskewed Polls". It is totally made up BS.

    For the umpteenth time, you can NOT "unskew" a poll. You can reject it, accept it, incorporate it into an average of polls - but you can not "unskew" it, which is exactly what this website is doing.

    This is just more “unskewing” polls. It is the same nonsense people fell for in 2012.

    You can’t “unskew” a poll like this site and others in the past attempted to do.

    A poll is a poll, accept it or reject it. Trying to apply your own special sauce to it does not work.

    The best bet is to simply go by the RCP average. It isn’t perfect, but it averages all the polls that are regarded as scientific. Last time people complained that the D+ sample was too large, but the polling turned out to be fairly accurate - especially on the state level.
