The Democrats’ ‘blue wave’ is drying up
New York Post, by John Podhoretz

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/12/2018 4:47:54 AM

Don’t count your elections before they’ve hatched. That’s the lesson of the past couple of weeks. Now, the so-called “fundamentals” that supposedly govern the 2018 midterm elections still point, as they always have, to a good-to-great night for Democrats. They are the out-party and the out-party generally does better than the party in power. The special elections since Donald Trump’s ascension have shown Democratic voter enthusiasm at stratospheric levels and Republican voter enthusiasm nowhere near. The president’s approval rating is in the low 40s, which is not good for the GOP’s position on Election Day.

Whenever I read Podhoretz, I invariably end up more confused than when I started. Also, the polls he cites here are not really what I´ve seen recently. Nevertheless, he makes a good point on the AZ race. We need every one of us out there on election day. Bring as many GOP friends as you can, by force if necessary. Its THAT important!

In this political climate, I cannot understand how you could possibly remain apathetic. The importance of this election is beyond any in my lifetime. We have the unhinged communist/fascist democrats chomping at the bit to regain power through whatever means necessary. As we witness everyday they are willing to commit violence to get their way. They bully, intimidate and rage against anyone who opposes them. This does not take into account their penchant for voter fraud. Therefore, we must show up at the polls like we have never done before. Democrats must be soundly defeated. The left also has no qualms about voter fraud and will do so with enthusiasm. Their end always justifies the means. We cannot stay home. Every vote is needed. They must suffer defeat like they have never suffered. We must overwhelm them with a repudiation of their violence and utter rejection of their policies. Please encourage others to vote Republican. If we are not victorious, the left will be vengeful tyrants. They will extract their revenge without mercy. That cannot happen. Vote Red on November 6th.

Podhoretz used alot of words to say that the pollsters and pundits don’t know what is going to happen. Remember these are the same people who gave Hillary a 95% chance of winning the Presidency. Just vote.

They have been applying that "out party" rule because most presidents get bogged down after two years and either don´t have the ability to fix the Washington mess or they get comfortable and go along with the status quo.

Donald Trump is not most presidents and he is still kicking ass like a champion. We owe him another six years. Vote.

Comey, Careless and Corrupt
American Spectator, by George Neumayr    Original Article

Drunk on his own self-deluded rectitude, James Comey has become one of the most insufferable voices on the Left. He teaches “ethics” at William & Mary, but it is hard to imagine a more unethical FBI director than one who signs off on the most invasive spying warrants imaginable without bothering to verify them, or even know their rationale. That came out in his shameless testimony last Friday in closed session with Congress. It was clear from his slipshod testimony that he hadn’t even read the FISA warrants he approved. He breezily acknowledged that the Steele dossier,

Cohen’s pleas concocted by

I’m experiencing 1998 déjà vu as prosecutors once again work overtime to turn extramarital affairs and the efforts to keep them secret into impeachable high crimes and misdemeanors. Unable to get the witnesses to compose the stories they want, today’s prosecutors are discovering they can simply compose the crimes by manipulating the pleas of men desperate to protect their families. The Michael Cohen sentencing memo took aim directly at both Cohen and President Donald Trump. It was used, unethically, to cast the president as directing a criminal conspiracy to make “secret and illegal” payments. Sentencing memos are not supposed

How Theresa May blew Brexit
New York Post, by Rich Lowry    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/11/2018 4:17:30     Post Reply
Shakespeare famously wrote of the “sceptered isle” of Britain acting as a moat “against the envy of less happier lands.” Lately, the less happier lands are winning in a rout. Britain is suffering a political meltdown as it struggles to make good on a historic vote in 2016 to leave the European Union. The decision for a so-called Brexit was a stirring statement of independence and self-government by a people who have defined themselves down the centuries by their stiff-necked resistance to anyone — whether overweening monarchs or continental tyrants — who would threaten either.

New York- Former FBI Director James Comey asked American voters Sunday night to end Donald Trump´s presidency "All of us should use every breath we have to make sure the lies stop on January 20, 2021," Comey told an audience at the 92nd Street Y on New York City´s Upper East Side. He all but begged Democrats to set aside their ideological differences and nominate the person best suited to defeating Trump in an election. "I understand the Democrats have important debates now over who their candidate should be,"

Royce Lamberth is an outspoken and sometimes controversial federal judge. Appointed by President Reagan, he has shown no partiality in going after litigants he considers to be malefactors. This time, it is the State Department and the Department of Justice. Judge Lamberth is presiding over the lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch against the State Department, asking for emails relating to the Benghazi talking points that were promulgated after that attack. On Thursday, he issued an order blasting the federal agencies and authorizing discovery by Judicial Watch, as described below. In his order, Lamberth sets forth a long effort to deceive

The nation´s most notorious missing person´s case, the disappearance of Teamsters Labor leader Jimmy Hoffa in 1975, can be solved by the stroke of a pen. The U.S. government should order the immediate release – un-redacted and in full – of the FBI´s secret files that the bureau has compiled on the Hoffa´s case, and also order the re-testing of the blood evidence that Fox News found on the floorboards of the Detroit house where a major suspect told me that he murdered Hoffa.

Legal trouble for President Trump is coming from all sides. There’s evidence Paul Manafort was still communicating with the White House this year. There’s evidence suggesting the Russian government was offering “synergy” with the Trump campaign. There’s further evidence Trump directed Michael Cohen to make the hush-money payments to pornographer Stormy Daniels. It’s still very unclear whether Trump broke any laws. It’s perfectly clear, however, that Trump got himself in this perfectly avoidable mess through bad behavior. For starters: Had Trump not cheated on his wife with a porn actress, he would not have found himself

Many people I know in law enforcement circles shuddered when James Comey tweeted recently that acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker “may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer.” To them, Comey’s Twitter attack crossed that “blue line” – the one that real cops abide by, to never criticize fellow officers and to always have their backs. I had a different reaction. I found it odd that a man who started his Twitter career by quoting Bible verses about justice might have forgotten one of the golden utterances from Jesus himself:

The Russia Probe Becomes a Banal Sex Scandal

Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/9/2018 4:23:13     Post Reply
Now that Robert Mueller and his merry band of wannabe Inspector Javerts have revealed much of their hand, we can see more clearly what their investigation is all about. Aside from the nauseatingly familiar Washington corruption of the Manafort/Podesta stripe, the Great Russia Probe of 2016-2018 (and onwards) has morphed into the even more nauseatingly familiar Washington sex scandal. If we are to believe legal-eagle Jonathan Turley--and why not; he seems pretty competent--Donald Trump´s most serious problem (possibly rising to obstruction) is not Russia collusion, whatever that is, but the hush money payoffs

DeepMind’s artificial intelligence programme AlphaZero is now showing signs of human-like intuition and creativity, in what developers have hailed as ‘turning point’ in history. The computer system amazed the world last year when it mastered the game of chess from scratch within just four hours, despite not being programmed how to win. But now, after a year of testing and analysis by chess grandmasters, the machine has developed a new style of play unlike anything ever seen before, suggesting the programme is now improvising like a human.

The City of Lights, Paris, has been illuminated in recent days by cars set alight by thousands of protesting “Yellow Vests”—largely middle class people who earn their living by driving or who commute to get to work. The cause of their ire is a scheduled 25 cents-per-gallon increase in gas taxes, and about 10 cents on diesel, to fight climate change. French President Macron, deeply unpopular, just reversed course on the new green tax—Parisians are already paying about $7.06 per gallon for gasoline, almost half of that in taxes.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) responded to the November employment report that came out today—which showed that a record 156,795,000 were employed in America—by saying that the report revealed “a callous GOP special interest agenda” that has hurt the “economic security of hard-working families.” The unemployment numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that the unemployment rate was 3.7 percent for the third straight month. That is the lowest unemployment rate the United States has seen since 1969, according to BLS. “November’s jobs report shows an economy straining beneath the weight of a callous GOP special interest agenda that

The country’s National Assembly approved a proposal to change the constitution to make the so-called reforms legal in a vote of 183 to 77. This paves the way for land to be taken from farmers without giving any kind of compensation. And now lawmakers have agreed to set up a committee that will write and introduce a new bill for land expropriations. A deadline of the end of March next year for the committee to present its first report to parliament has also been agreed. But there were heated scenes in the House when politicians clashed over the plans. According to local reports, Economic Freedom

Rep. Jerrold Nadler on Sunday said it would be an impeachable offense if it’s proven that President Trump directed former lawyer Michael Cohen to commit felonies. “Whether they are important enough to justify an impeachment is a different question, but certainly they’d be impeachable offenses,” Mr. Nadler, who is in line to chair the House Judiciary Committee next year, said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Even though they were committed before the president became president, they were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office — that would be an impeachable offense,” said Mr. Nadler, New York Democrat.

The Supreme Court declined to review three cases relating to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood at the state level Monday, over a vigorous dissent from Justice Clarence Thomas. The dissent was significant because it indicates that Justice Brett Kavanaugh sided with the high court’s liberal wing to deny review of a lower court decision that favored the nation’s largest abortion provider. “So what explains the Court’s refusal to do its job here?,” Thomas wrote. “I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named ‘Planned Parenthood.
