  • DNC's-Hillary's Festivus: The Airing of Grievances and Lawsuit

    In Trump’s counter suit, he needs to look into those who caused riots and tried to disrupt his rallies especially in Chicago and California. Also, He should as for all connections between the press and the DNC. And the funding of the DNC by the Hillary Campaign. Of course the Dossier is a target as is any connection with the government like the state department, WH and the DOJ including the FBI. ALso, you might as well go after foreigners like Soros, Steele and Russians. Oh and don’t forget the Clinton slush funds.

    If the Trump campaign for 2016 is a separate entity from Trump 2020, then they should have little to worry about. Maybe the dems are trying to keep Trump 2016 open. But Trump 2020 should inherit the data from 2016. Now the data will be held available to the court. DNC is going after a group that can’t really defend themselves. Russia, Wikileaks and defunct Trump 2016 have no funding source to keep up a defense.

    It is not the law that a senator suggests a nominee for a circuit court. It is a long standing tradition. I believe it is allowed to stand because the senate must vote on each nominee. And the nominating Senator often acts as shepherd for the nominee to get through conference hearings.

    As someone posted earlier, this situation may be a compromise that assumes the republicans will/might lose control of the senate in January.

    While I am not sure what she is thinking, the reality is that this women was born in London. She went to Oxford, was accepted at Harvard MBA. He was a dentist until his father died just before they were married.

    I do not think she needed the money. She was already wealthy. I assume that the last 18 years were spent mostly doing first wife things and raising 3 children.

    I am not sure either of these two are quite what they are portrayed to be.

    You guys are nuts. This is a George Bush action. Trump should do nothing unless inspectors prove chemical weapons were used. The reality is that Chlorine is very common and leaks of it in a war zone are a real possibility. Plus you have no idea if the video is real, if it was taken recently, who spilled the gas, and if the video was even from the place they said it was. Don’t turn yourself into a Bush. Trump should not act unless he can prove it was a weapon fired from Assad.

    Remember you can’t win in Syria. There are fighters pouring in from over the boarders. There are no US friends in Syria. There is no such thing as friendly rebels in Syria. And TRUMP RAN ON GETTING OUT OF SYRIA.

    If you take the McCabe report and the Comey book together, you should not miss the important story. According to both of them, Comey came out about Hillary and McCabe leaked to the Wall Street Journal because the DOJ refused to allow a grand jury, indictment or special prosecutor for Hillary. It comes up in both the book and the McCabe report and people aren’t talking about it. The Justice department was stonewalling after the tarmac visit.

    I am sure there is some strategy somewhere. They may be trying to play for the republicans losing the senate so they are getting something in return here. Remember they aren’t really making it worse. You can’t turn the ninth with 1 or 2 or even 3 conservatives. And if they are trading something for this, then it may be the player to be named later. Stack the ninth with liberals and get a conservative somewhere else.

    The way it works is that they take nominees from the senators of those states. In the ninth, there are few good choices available to him.

  • Teen Who Got Into 20 Schools Wants Apology From TV Anchor

    The news anchor did not understand the game. And it has nothing to do with the kid, or his mother. The kid applied to numerous colleges because his high school’s college counselor told him to. The high school gets bonus points for sending better kids to the college. The colleges get brownie points for accepting kids “of color” even if they did not enroll at the school (at least they tried). Everybody wins, accept the kid who spends extra time enrolling everywhere. It may cost the kid a little more, but not likely too much. Some colleges wave the fee for kids like this.

    A kid who “identifies as black or native American” and can get a 30 on their ACT is gold to these colleges. And gold to the high school. There are so few out there. And nobody wants to admit that. Also, nobody wants to admit that they don’t have many black students. So “identifying” raises the pool.

    The reality is that students of color is easy if you include Asian and Hispanic. Asian has the obvious advantage of high test scores and even higher grades. If anything they are quota’ed out of their rightful place at many colleges like Harvard. And Hispanics are too easy to get. As anyone with a Spanish last name can play that card. You can have blond hair and blue eyes and lived in this country going back 150 years and be legitimately Hispanic if your name is Rivera. And of course the colleges are looking for that group too (blonde blue eyed Hispanics).

  • Trump directs advisers to consider return to TPP

    I got no problem with TPP if it means tariffs on China. As I see it, TPP is the logical alternative to China. I am not saying TPP is perfect or even good. But I think it has to be better than China trade. And if China changes. Then we can go out of TPP and negotiate different treaties with TTP countries individually. As it stands now, both Canada and Mexico are TPP countries. Maybe TPP is better than NAFTA as well.

    How is this better than Obama you may ask? Well if you shoot down the worst trade agreement, then renegotiate the next worst one until they are all better, I think you are moving in the right direction. Obama kept creating stupid agreements. He really only cared about climate change and not about the American worker.

    It will blow up if it is stored as a liquid. And those who use lots of it, store it as a liquid in cooled tanks. If those tanks hit higher temperatures they explode.

    The disaster protocol requires that the tanks contents be slowly released out of doors and the immediate area as well as any low lying areas be evacuated until the gas has dissipated.

    This video is absolutely a fake. Tucker has a well thought out reason for assuming so, Andrea Mitchell, John Dean, and Lindsey Graham are all egging Trump to act. As Tucker says, that should be an alarm bell right there.

    But this video and the attack are suspect. First, Chlorine gas is very much available everywhere in large tanks. Those tanks can explode just by cutting off the electricity to the factory or shooting them by mistake. Second, we do not know when or where this video was recorded. Its very possible that this video was recorded long ago and far away, waiting for a moment like this to be used.

    Trump turns into George W. Bush if he takes the bait and reacts to this. Trump don’t be a sucker. You are better than Bush. Democrats just want you to send your armies to the middle east away from our boarder. And Lindsey wants his weapons makers to sell more weapons. This is not in Americas interest. We won’t look strong. We will look stupid and easily manipulated. And conservatives will lose everything we were working for. The debt will go up, the Army will buy bombs not pay troops, the boarders will be left undermanned, And democrats will turn on Trump as being a stupid guy who ran on staying out of dumb wars but got us back into one.

    TRUMP don’t do it!!!!

    While this may be a story about fertility, or online dating, or women’s predicament on finding a guy or their biological clock. The truth is, that none of these are true. This is a story about a crazy, lying women. He is not a good guy if he stays. He is a stupid guy. This women is a nut job. And she is a dishonest nut job. No matter how he thinks this may turn out for the best, he is wrong. You cannot stay with a nut job. And you cannot stay with a conniving liar. So, he should pay the bill. It can’t be that much because she is not drinking. He should wish her luck, and move on without a forwarding address.

    And to all the readers out there, I think we should wonder if this is not fake news. I mean why do we know about this date. One of those two is a publicity hound. So this may be nothing but a PR stunt.

    I think the argument that they are trying to make is that Trumps lawyer was giving Trump an undocumented campaign donation. If the lawyer paid off bimbos, without compensation then he gave Trump a gift or donation.

    I think Trump would have to argue that his attorney did that for him all the time. And he was paid on a retainer for which small pay-offs like that are just included as part of the deal. Larger pay-offs may require Trump to OK the amount or even pay for it.

    The sad thing is this is just another example of laws being enforced against republicans that are never enforced against democrats. Like the former Virginia governor who was convicted of talking to a lobbyist. Something ever politician does but which is never considered a crime unless an out of favor republican does it.

    Don’t do it!!!! Don’t do it!!!! This act will turn Trump into Bush. Its a no win fight, and everyone calling for war now will turn against you in three months, why get into that. The video is OBVIOUSLY a hoax! And we have no friends in Syria, none. There is nobody there who would not stab Trump in the back. This whole thing is about using our army for something other than our own boarders. That is the only thing the democrats care about. And Graham just wants his military vendors to get more huge contracts.

    The sad thing is that this new action will hurt everything Trump stands for. The military will not get their pay raise because we will be buying missiles instead. Our boarders will not have troops on them because the troops will be dying in Syria. And the democrats will not be on Trumps side. As soon as Trump commits himself they will attack Trump on the first American death.

    Letting the press start our wars is the most foolish thing Presidents do in this country. We should defend friends who have a chance to win. But there are no friends in Syria.

    And by the way. Chlorine gas is available in every factory. It is commonly used and available everywhere. These videos could come from a chlorine gas tank being shot at in any town factory in Syria. It could have been done on purpose or by mistake. It could have been done by any side. In fact it is likely that it was caused by the lack of electricity in a holding tank. Chlorine is stored as a liquid when its cold. When the electricity is shut down, it would explode. So, this most common of all industrial chemicals could easily harm many people in a war zone. In fact Chlorine gas is often spilled in the US through leaks in factories or train car derailments.

    What is wrong with this? I’ll start a list. Where was Andrea Mitchell when Obama got out his red crayon and drew a line for Assad to dance over? Then another one is, why is anyone paying attention to Andrea Mitchell? And a third one is, are we at all sure that she is still alive? Maybe her face paint appears to move in the flickering, strong lights of the studio. But in reality she has been dead for years. And lastly, I am wondering if there is proof other than that one video. I would like to be sure before we bomb the crap out of something or somebody. Do we know the video is real, and do we know who sent the poison. This could easily be a leak from a factory chlorine tank and not a chemical weapon.
