Pollsters botch key races as turnout
models over-count Democrats

Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough

Original Article

Pollsters on Tuesday avoided their disastrous 2016 election forecasts by correctly predicting that Democrats would regain control of the House, though botching some important statewide races. (Snip) There were glaring survey errors in 2018 as turnout models over-counted Democrats. By Tuesday night, Republicans had won important Senate and governor races. The misses in the days before voting, based on polls posted on Real Clear Politics: Florida governor. The last 10 polls had pegged Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum the winner. But former Rep. Ron DeSantis won by 0.7 percentage points.

Over sampling Democrats is too consistent to be considered an error anymore. It´s manipulation of public opinion.

They do it every time. I´ve gotten so that if it is a tie in the polls I just give it to the Republican.

Quinnipiac College is good at ice hockey. Not good at polling.

´Botch´ implies an accident, this was and is intentional.

Clinton Foundation raises objections to
reporting of the Hill’s John Solomon
Washington Post, by Eric Wemple    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 12/13/2018 5:14:14 PM     Post Reply
John Solomon understands the art of a nice innuendo-laden question-mark headline, as he proved on Tuesday evening: “Did Clinton Foundation mislead IRS? State filings raise the question.” What follows is a discussion of Clinton Foundation run-ins with state regulators. The lead example: Utah “specifically flagged money spent on professional fundraisers and consultants that were excluded from the required section of the filing,” wrote Solomon in the story. The Clinton Foundation responded that those expenses were listed in another section.

BOONE COUNTY, Ind. – A special tribute to fallen officers is on display at the Boone County Sheriff’s Office. They installed a Christmas tree with 137 blue ornaments to represent the 137 officers killed in the line of duty this year, including Boone County’s own Deputy Jacob Pickett. “It means a lot to all of us – we were all very close. He was a wonderful officer, and it’s our way of honoring him and the other 136 officers that have been killed this year,” said Mike Gideon, Boone County Senior Dispatch Officer. Each ornament was hand-written with

How Bloomberg and ‘Moms

American Greatness, by Richard Logis    Original Article

Before she blocked me on Twitter, I frequently read the posts of Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, as well as tweets from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his Everytown for Gun Safety, which is the chief financial backer of Watts’ organization. Combined, the two gun control groups stand front and center in America’s anti-gun cult, with 4 million members, which is about on par with the membership of the National Rifle Association. It’s alarming how frequently Watts manipulates data to craft a narrative that America is held hostage to

Comey Continues to Display
His Lack of Credibility

Fired former FBI director James Comey is at it again. Last week, Comey testified before members of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. In a single appearance, Comey, on 245 separate occasions, while under oath, stonewalled questions with “I don’t know,” “I don’t remember” or “I don’t recall,” according to a congressional interrogator, Rep. Jim Jordan. (R-Ohio). If any private citizen tried Comey’s gambit with federal IRS auditors or FBI investigators, he would likely be indicted for perjury or obstruction. Why did Comey, the nation’s former top-ranking federal investigator, avoid

Don’t buy into the Cohen guilty plea and sentencing hype the Establishment Media is now manufacturing. Cohen was primarily charged on misdeeds totally unrelated to his professional relationship with Donald Trump. Today we get a glimpse of just how insidious this entire get-Trump operations has been via words from General Michael Flynn who faced an onslought of intimidation very early on in the Mueller investigation via now disgraced former FBI Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe. (Snip)Via Fox News: Flynn says FBI pushed him not to have lawyer present during interview

   

 



 
Michael Cohen´s tears taste good

The subheadline in the Daily Mail said it all, "A tearful Cohen pushed back at President Trump for calling him ´weak.´" What a dork. He was Donald John Trump´s private attorney for many years, but when the heat was on for Cohen´s non-Trump activities, Cohen sold the president out for a plea bargain. And Bungling Bob Mueller failed to keep his end of deal. The judge gave Cohen a three-year sentence.

The Boy Scouts of America is mulling declaring bankruptcy amid flagging membership and an avalanche of costly sex abuse allegations, according to the Wall Street Journal. Leaders have hired Chicago law firm Sidley Austin for help in a potential Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, sources told the outlet. The organization has been fending off lawsuits over alleged abuse, including one filed by four former scouts who called the club a “pedophile magnet” and alleged that they were molested by scoutmaster Waldron Ackerman between 1974 and 1976. The organization has reportedly lost two-thirds of its members — some 4 million boys —

Woke 29-year-old Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went after White House Chief of Staff John Kelly yesterday. Why? She wants him to apologize to Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson for supposedly "lying" about her to reporters.(tweet)"Cowardice." Quite a big word to use against a four-star Marine Corps general whose son was killed in Afghanistan. Wilson´s spat with Kelly came last year when she alleged President Trump disrespected a military family during a phone call. Kelly disputed her characterization and gave a briefing to the White House press corps on how the military handles casualties.

Nancy Pelosi mocked President Trump’s “manhood” and questioned his basic understanding of government spending during a closed-door meeting with House Democrats on Tuesday, according to an aide in the room. (Snip) “It’s like a manhood thing for him,” Pelosi told the Dems of Trump’s wall obsession, according to the source. “As if manhood could ever be associated with him.”

For the women who showed up at Little Caesars Arena on Tuesday night, seeing Michelle Obama was like meeting up with their super-smart best friend who just happens to be the former first lady of the United States and author of the best-selling hardcover book of the year.They praised her intelligence, her poise, her grace, her style, her penchant for shopping at Target, her ability to live in the spotlight but remain down to earth.

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus

Two groups of migrants from Central America marched to the American consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, yesterday, with a list of demands to the Trump administration. One of them asked the American president to either let them in the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. The first group, including about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11am on Tuesday. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the $50,000 figure is not a very big sum. ´It may seem like a lot of money to you,´ he said.

Blasey-Ford’s scared little girl voice

When Professor Christine Blasey-Ford testified against the Supreme Court nomination of then-Judge Bret Kavanaugh, my very first impression was that her voice sounded fake. She sounded like a scared little girl, her voice tremulous, creating an impression of sadness and vulnerability. (snip) For the first time since her testimony, we now have the opportunity to hear her voice, and guess what? She doesn’t sound at all like the witness whose fear and suffering moved so many Democrats and feminists. She sounds like a grown-up, a professor indeed.
