So . . .GA6 and SC5 remain repub.
Okay. So what! In the last 7yrs the dems have lost well over a thousand seats across the board and now the GOP has control of BOTH the Senate and the HoR -- and now the WH. Yet, are we even close to REAL Obamacare repeal; or tax reform? No. Are we closer to REAL spending cuts or a Balanced Budget? Nuh-uh. How about the runaway costs of SocSec; any closer to any reform there? HAH!
So, excuse me for not popping the bubbly over the GA or SC "wins". I grade on actual legislative RESULTS - not merely on intentions. We get enough of that w/ the bullsh*t COMMON CORE education system.
That's my not-so-humble opinion!
Yes, I do believe they are. Bennett certainly is just 1 for possible 2nd nominee.
It is out of our hands and in MEGA Dons.
I do hope that his top pick is Bennett. If not then perhaps she will be when Ginsburg either nods off her final time or retires.
It concerns me greatly when an opinion piece in a left newsprint article say 'here should be the next supreme court nominee/justice'. Red flag
Larry, "Weekend At Bernie's" is exactly the right analogy!

Pat, that was the way the dem/media had chosen-by-intimidation "OUR" candidates for decades. Jeb and Romney were THEIR "favorites" too, remember?!
Thankfully, DT changed that self destructive pattern . . .at least for now. The dem/media didn't MAKE Trump. So they CAN'T break him! Because of that the radical left's heads have been exploding across the country. BUT, always remember, they never get tired. They never quit. And when they have lost elections, their POLICIES have ALWAYS found its way to become LAWS! There's over a century and a half of evidence of that! And that, folks, is the REAL "win"!
Yes AM912 the RINOs would circle Jim J. and take their turns stabbing him. I think we could all come up with their motivations. I was just writing an email to my U.S. Congressman whom I doubt would abandon Jordan.
i doubt it will blow over, Jones threatened the party norm -- just can't let the crazy uncle (constitutionalists within the party) out of the attic if he's gonna behave that way yaknow.
... I have a long-term friend who's unfortunately still under the progressive spell Austin casts on it's residents. We usually don't talk much politics.. but lately there's been a couple times when he seemingly couldn't help himself and has gone off into VERY-petty but extreme Trump bashing. When I've had my fill both times I've just said that I can't understand how somebody as otherwise smart as him still gets seduced by the extremely biased major media and it's very-tired shoving of Alinsky tactics down our throats. It's grade school playground stuff and it's ridiculous for it to still have the effect it has.
.... and the petty trump bashing/Alinsky b.s. ends - ! YAY !
I've wondered before how the same talking points and headlines get such widespread usage all at once. Did kinda the same research you did Am. Ended up figuring it's a product of Associated Press, being the daily progressive talking points distributer.
Larry, I have pretty much stopped trying to talk with my progressive friends. I had to snooze posts for another 30 days because I could not tolerate.
I like both he and his wife, the wife has stage 4 breast cancer, from afar I try to be supportive as a friend for what they must endure.
The thing is that now the press, MSM and the disgusting leaders of the left and right in to a well Mikey did it so childish.
I fear for our nation. All this that will not be possible to walk back will lead to socialist tyranny.
I'm sure you all heard about the students that were asked about DT's choice for SCOTUS, right?
Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjKWXyznS9s
Errrr....uuuh...but the problem is that Trump hasn't exactly announced his choice yet, right?
Aaah! Liberalism! Well...as the saying goes:
"A moron is a terrible thing to make".
The queen of the MORONS, Hillary Rotted Clinton, not only still believes that she could still win; she's now compared herself to Winston Churchill to boot! HOLY CRAP! LMAO
Hillary 2020: GO FOR IT!
Aaaaa ah ha ha ha ha
Article 3 of the original language and responsibility of the European Alliance reads as follows: "In order more effectively to achieve the objectives of this Treaty, the Parties, separately and jointly, by means of continuous and effective self-help and mutual aid, will maintain and develop their individual and collective capacity to resist armed attack."
"Self help" is the key point that President Trump had made to the members of NATO, and especially to Angela Merkel, w/ his kick-ass speech. It was decades overdue.
Imo, Merkel's sweetheart deal is worthy of the Clintons, Barack Obama and George Soros. Meanwhile, as frau Merkel enriches herself w/ this Russian deal, Germany's air force is dilapidated. Only FOUR of its 128 (or less than 4%) of its fighter jets are combat ready today. (See: https://www.dw.com/en/only-4-of-germanys-128-eurofighter-jets-comba... )
LESS THAN 4%?! I'd say that is a huge breach of the NATO Treaty...and OUR National Security...in itself!
So...grand slam homerun for Trump! Again, it was a long time coming!
And now the dem/media joins Merkel eating a spread of sour grapes; sauer kraut and lemons w/ their caviar. Enjoy!
Trump and NATO
This would be a great opportunity for President Trump to point out that what the USA wants from NATO (Pay your EQUAL share!) is exactly what We want from ALL nations we practice trade with. EQUAL TARIFFS! Period!
DT plans a $12B "aid" package for farmers? Uh-oooh! BAD idea! Color it anyway you want: aid; subsidies; bailouts - it's the manure of socialism through and through.
> It raises our deficit
> It further expands the reach of the federal govt
> It causes dependency upon the govt
> And whatever the govt subsidizes anything, prices start to soar!
I am totally against this move.
"The nine most terrifyng words you can hear is: We're from the govt; and we're here to help" - Ronald Reagan
I STILL believe that! I don't care WHO is the potus!
Sooooo...Someone inside Twit #2's team has taken a leak. Bob Mueller (Twit #2) has started an investigation on Trump's tweets. That #2 is searching for the "obstruction" angle . . .Again?! (chuckle)
CONCLUSION: Twit #2 has NOTHING left!
It's obvious that Twit #1, Jeff Sessions, just has to be either "in" w/ trying to get rid of President Trump; or the deep-state has osme dirt on Twit #1.
The one obstructing justice is Twit #3, Rod Rosenstein - for refusing to comply w/ Congress which has the RIGHT to view ALL the files. Not merely just the redacted ones that were cherry picked by Twit #3.
All the talk of "impeachment" of Rosenstein is just that: CAMPAIGN TALK, imo. Because it's NOT gonna happen. How long will the POTUS continue putting up w/ this wild JACKASS chase?! By LAW President Trump can ORDER Rosenstein to fully release all the files that Congress is calling for!
I'm thinking that "politics" is keeping DT's hands tied. And I do include Rudy as well. DT's staff just has to be "suggesting" that he let it ride.
Twit Mueller can ride the Twitter wave until 2020. Meaning this bllsht anal probe would continue drilling like an offshore oil rig. Then what?!
Loved your reply Luis. You have the knack for getting to the point, pulling back the covers to expose as you say the Twits.
It is all political war games and dangerous war games as well. Lots of danger for the health of our Republic.
DT has to be frustrated with all the twits and yes the gambles of best time advice to act or not.
I truly liked Sessions but liking him does not let him off the hook for an appearance of being ineffectual as head of DOJ.
"DT has to be frustrated with all the twits "
I was listening to a conversation earlier between Glenn Beck and Bill O'reilly. Because DT's lawter/stoolie Michael Cohen did keep recordings, and the FISA court did give the FBI permission to record conversations that DT had at Trump Tower, one has to wonder WHAT ELSE can the FBI have that DT would not want to come out?
O'reilly had also suggested that the President should directly order Rosenstein to release the files. If Rosenstein's refuses to yet again, then the POTUS has every right to out and out FIRE him! Yet, the question still remains: WHY doesn't he?!
WHAT has both the hands of DT and Jeff Sessions tied in knots there? The more time goes by w/ this rogue FBI seemingly running-the-show the more suspect it becomes against the "CiC" and the "director" of the DoJ. jmho
