      we were supposed to think Trump was unfortunate? Why, because he ran for president and called all of his opponents names, and called their wives names, and in some cases, called one of their fathers a traitor? And yet they come back and grovel at his feet now that he is king! His son makes vile, dishonest and demeaning remarks to people he considers enemies, and makes those statements in public and nobody cares, yet the previous president’s 16 year old gets caught smoking and the right pouts that he is a poor father. Or was it his wife posed nude a number of times when she was younger and that is ok because she was just looking for honest work but another president’s wife actually does things rather than pout all day long and she is a bitch because of it. Yeah, he is so unfortunate. Or that unfortunate fact his daddy gave him millions of dollars to start off in life and he doesn’t pay taxes but that is ok because he takes taxes out of their salaries so he does pay taxes? That kind of unfortunate? Or that he runs the presidency like a reality show so that his fans aren’t disappointed and continue to support his program? Or unfortunate that the Republicans had no body else who was good enough to run a decent campaign and challenge his sorry ass? You are a moron.

    A scientific paper published by a team of Australian researchers has revealed a startling find: Scientists at the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) have been “adjusting” historical data regarding tide levels in the Indian Ocean. Their “highly questionable” activities have depicted rapidly rising seas — but the truth is that there is no reason to be alarmed at all. Scientists have found that sea levels are stable — and have been for the entirety of the 20th century. To put it simply, these PSMSL “scientists” have been arbitrarily changing their data in order to create the illusion of a problem that doesn’t actually exist.
    “It is always highly questionable to shift data collected in the far past without any proven new supporting material.” But what makes the PSMSL’s data shifts even more questionable is the fact that older datasets were adjusted to look lower while all newer sets of sea level data were re-configured to appear higher. When these arbitrary adjustments are taken together, it creates the appearance of a significant and concerning rise in sea levels — one that is entirely artificial.
    What are more dangerous are the corrections recently introduced to the past to magnify the sea-level trend or the acceleration. As shown in the prior section, the adjustments introduced by PSMSL to make the RLR [revised local reference, or adjusted data] are arbitrary in Aden, Karachi, and Mumbai.
    To sum it up, they have found there is no reason to believe that sea levels are rising — and that PSMSL has been wantonly adjusting sea level data to create the appearance of a problem that doesn’t actually exist.

    Are you a Republican, a Democrat, or a Southerner? This little test will help you decide: You’re walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, a Terrorist with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges at you… You are carrying a Kimber 1911 chambered in .45 ACP, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?
    ******************************
    Democrat’s Answer:
    Well, that’s not enough information to answer the question! What is a Kimber 1911 and what does .45 ACP mean? Does the man look poor or oppressed? Is he really a terrorist? Am I guilty of profiling? Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack? Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand? What does the law say about this situation? Does the pistol have an appropriate safety built into it? Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children? Is it possible he’d be happy with just killing me? Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me? Should I call 9-1-1? Why is this street so deserted? Can we make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior. I need to debate this with some friends for a few days and try to come to a consensus. This is all so confusing!

    Moscow Mitch, perjurer.

    “I’m not an impartial juror. This is a political process. There’s not anything judicial about it.
    The House made a partisan political decision to impeach. I would anticipate we will have a largely partisan outcome in the Senate.
    I’m not impartial about this at all.” – Mitch McConnell.

    On Thursday, McConnell stood with his hand in the air in front of Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts and took the oath “I solemnly swear that in all things appertaining to the trial of Donald John Trump, now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws, so help me God.”

    When he took that oath, when he signed his name to the book proclaiming that oath, he became a perjurer.

    Slam his ass in the Capital lock-up and put him on a diet of chittlins, collard greens and head cheese.
    That should help adjust his redneck attitude for a few weeks.

    Although, right now there is no reason to arrest the ugly old turtle, but a deep-dive investigation of Moscow Mitch is definitely warranted and will probably turn up a connection to Putin.
    There has to be a powerful incentive for him to sell out his country in such an obvious way.

    Could anyone perform ELP’s Toccata and Fugue with the same passion, voice, or intimacy as ELP (not to mention the sound of that big MOOG)? And same goes for Kansas’ Dust in the wind (besides what Tribute band has a violin on stage?). The imitators lack the sound and soul of the progressive rock era.

What I would like to see is the financial records of her company to see where they got the 9 million dollars to give her in the 1st place. They have received some kind of government Grant money somewhere along the line enough that they can take a good chunk for themselves and passed a little onto the Clintons via Chelsea. High (ridiculous) payments for speeches, being a “member” of a board…they are all venues to “launder” our tax money back to their pockets. Once financial aid is awarded, it is lost as far as accountability unless the recipient confessed what they did with money (not likely if they want more, duh).

    Crazy/Stupid Republican profile:

    Martha McSally, the junior U.S. Senator from Arizona, a position to which she was appointed by shady-as-hell Arizona Govenror Doug Ducey, is a dumbass.
    The fact that she is now a Senator defies most respect for Democracy, considering Arizona voters rejected the thought of her as their Senator in the 2018 elections, choosing Democrat Kyrsten Sinema over her.

    Since arriving in the Senate, McSally has continued to rubber-stamp every Trump appointee who comes in front of her, no matter how unqualified they are.

    Like Chelsea Clinton just got a 9 million dollar bonus from her company…Honestly, how can a company figures she is worth that much money. She was fresh out of college without much experience. What I would like to see is the financial records of her company to see where they got the 9 million dollars to give her in the 1st place. They have received some kind of government Grant money somewhere along the line enough that they can take a good chunk for themselves and passed a little onto the Clintons via Chelsea. High (ridiculous) payments for speeches, being a “member” of a board…they are all venues to “launder” our tax money back to their pockets. Once financial aid is awarded, it is lost as far as accountability unless the recipient confessed what they did with money (not likely if they want more, duh). They keep some for themselves and funnel back a good portion via family members and bullshit over payments.

    Bernie Sanders had made it his life’s ambition to try and make government bigger and bigger. He will never be the one to cut government waste. 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders said that he would raise taxes on anyone making over $29,000 a year to fund a government health care takeover The bigger question is what will the illegals pay for the healthcare they’ve been promised by Bernie? The answer is frightening…he will give the illegals FREE healthcare: Democrat Bernie Sanders is running to become the next POTUS in 2020 but you’d think he’s running to become the president of the millions of illegals who are living in America right now.

When this female can announce, before the election, HER plans to “impeach,” isn’t that proof of HER malfeasance in office? Her quote came BEFORE he was President, so it couldn’t be anything he had done, or was accused of doing, but of her plan, which sounds a whole lot like treason!

      No, to all of the above. Once the House votes to impeach, he’s impeached. Think of the House as a grand jury, voting to indict. The Senate holds a trial, with Senators as the trial jury, who will vote whether or not to convict.

    **This week, House Democrats finally submitted articles of impeachment against our President without any evidence of a “high crime or misdemeanor” — and without the bipartisan support that Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised would be a prerequisite for impeachment. It’s a disgrace. As acquittal in the Senate nears, millennials should be warned that such behavior cannot become normalized in our Democracy. We must think of the long-term implications of partisan impeachments. A partisan impeachment is inherently undemocratic. But many Democrats have compounded the problem by neglecting to teach millennials the fundamental civics of this country. A study released in 2016, for example, found that only about 30 percent of American millennials think it is “essential” to live in a Democracy. This is all a terrible shame for millennials, because we will have to live with a mess that current congressional Democrats created.

It jump started the impeachment inquiry against Trump, which is now officially in the Senate trial stage. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko doesn’t buy any of it. “I never spoke with this individual,” Prystaiko told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Friday. “And, again, frankly, I don’t trust any word he is now saying.” No quid pro quo, he added, was “ever mentioned in any of those conversations.”

    *Compelling article in Conservative Review today! Opening paragraph:
    “ICE issued detainers on criminal aliens just this past year who were collectively charged with 2,500 murders! To put that in perspective, according to the FBI, law enforcement agencies only arrested 9,049 individuals in total for homicide in 2018. So 2,500 is roughly 28 percent of the known homicide offenders! It is equivalent to the body count from 43 Las Vegas shootings, all committed by foreign nationals. Isn’t it time we provide more funding for ICE so we don’t continue to harbor other countries’ murderers?”

      I just finished reading the ICE report. It took some time – there are 32 pages – but eventually, I found the statement you refer to – 2500 murders. The report doesn’t say anything about who the people were, what murders they were suspected of, where they were apprehended, where the murders took place or how many were charged with murder. In other words, there is a lot of room to adjust the stats. I would agree that is a large number, but if ICE includes terrorists, which it does, one bombing could result in hundreds of deaths. More telling perhaps is that ICE states in the report that the vast majority of those detained are family units without criminal records. ICE did deport a large number of gang-affiliated people and I thank them for that.
