How many husbands control the votes
of their wives? We´ll never know

Guardian [UK], by Rebecca Solnit

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/20/2018 9:35:03 AM

Progressive organizer Annabel Park told the story that made me start to wonder. “I can’t stop thinking about this woman I met while doorknocking for Beto in Dallas,” Annabel wrote on social media a few days before the midterm elections. “She lived in a sprawling low-income apartment complex. After I knocked a couple of times, she answered the door with her husband just behind her. She looked petrified and her husband looked menacing behind her. When I made my pitch about Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke, her husband yelled, ‘We’re not interested.’

Comments:
Horsefeathers! Even her anecdotes ring false.

I hate to disappoint her but my husband and two sons come to me and ask who we´re voting for because I´m the one most familiar with the candidates and the issues.

If this actually happened, this silly Beto woman has no idea what was going on with this couple when she knocked on their door.

I have seen two women yell at their kids in the supermarket. We have to stop allowing women to have kids, and also ban them from supermarkets. This decision is based on my own research.

This just cracks me up! I´m exactly like #1. I help to make sure my husband votes right!!! Lol!!! And our kids come to me for help on candidates and propositions.

Ms. Solnit, is a nit-wit leftist who wouldn´t know my voting abilities if she tried. This dope thinks everyone should think as she does. Praise the Lord we don´t!!!

Stupid people like this shouldn´t be able to voice their stupid opinions.

MAGA!!! KAG!!! If I wasn´t so lawful, Ms. Solnit, I´d vote 50 times or more for Mr. Trump!

At my house our relationship has evolved from her asking me who to vote for ( I wouldn´t tell her) to her asking me the different candidate´s stance..she can make her own decisions. I´m tired of picking restaurants as well, but I haven´t worked out a method for that one...I´m the one that is usually hungry.

I thought this ridiculous and laughable notion was put to pasture with Hitlery´s screaming and wailing--

Only the voter knows who they voted for, and no matter how much blather the media tries to cook up about "stolen" elections, voter intimidation, and "suppresed" voting, the results are what they are.

Now let´s make sure the the mistakes of the past are non longer going to be excuses in the future for poor chain of custody of ballot boxes, and poll watchers looking for irregularities that would call into question the veracity of the results.

#1 has it right. I am the one in my house who keeps up with the politics, and I advise my family of the facts as I find them. Now I understand how democrat lofo homes could be this way possibly, but most homes do not have abusive husbands controlling how his wife votes. This is just another lame attempt to blame it all again on those white guys they hate so much.

I am far more conservative than my husband. He warmed up to Trump because of my influence. He is no pushover, and took the time to really look at Trump´s policies and accomplishments because I discussed things with him.


Seeing the articles about conservative doormats and mean ol´ wascally white racist women only cheapens the democrat brand.

I call shenanigans! That couple was probably in the middle of an argument when she showed up. My husband doesn´t tell me who to vote for and I don´t tell him who to vote for. We´re both pretty similar in our political views, although I may be slightly more conservative. I am the one who usually reads the voter´s pamphlet, so he often asks me what my take on something is. He is free to vote as he sees fit, as am I.

We vote by mail ballot in our area for the county to save money. My daughter and I filled out ours and her husbands with that big sole R and mailed them all on time.

Was it filled out to his directions? And -here´s the real funny to toss in--do the signatures match?

Is there one rule for conservative women and one for liberals?

The Russia Investigations: An Unfinished
Case Looks Weaker Than Ever
National Public Radio, by Philip Ewing    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 12/15/2018 12:30:59     Post Reply
Political and legal danger for President Trump may be sharpening by the day, but the case that his campaign might have conspired with the Russian attack on the 2016 election looks weaker than ever. Trump has been implicated in ordering a scheme to silence two women ahead of Election Day in 2016 about the alleged sexual relationships they had with him years before. That is a serious matter, or it might have been in other times, but it is decidedly not a global conspiracy with a foreign power to steal the election.

The Curse of The Weekly Standard

In the Donald Trump era, some liberals are confounded by their affection for a figure they would otherwise despise. He is known to them, after all, as one of America’s most enthusiastic warmongers—and the man who first vaulted Sarah Palin to national fame. Yet for all his many episodes of villainy, it’s possible to concede the pleasures of his impish company, especially when he breaks ranks to join your political side. His current career as a pithy critic of the president had led liberal Twitter to endow him with a grudgingly affectionate moniker: He is “Woke Bill Kristol.”

Julián Castro To Launch

Former San Antonio mayor and Obama administration cabinet member Julián Castro is launching a presidential exploratory committee ahead of a scheduled January 12 announcement about his future political plans. “Some people might say that it’s early, but I believe you have to be decisive,” he told the Associated Press in an interview Wednesday, adding that he will spend the next month traveling and listening to people—and likely trying to generate commitments of support from key Democrats. “I know where I’m leaning for sure.” An adviser said the 44-year-old Castro has all but decided to throw his hat

The aim of the victims’ rights movement, which arose in the 1970s and has swept through every state in the union and changed federal laws in the years since, is often summed up simply: Crime victims have the right to be “informed, present and heard.” All these rights were trampled by Alexander Acosta, formerly the U.S. attorney in South Florida and currently U.S. secretary of labor, when he struck a secret deal with wealthy sex offender Jeffrey Epstein to shield Epstein from federal investigation and prosecution.Though Acosta was in possession of a 53-page draft indictment charging that the well-connected financier

During his fourteen years as Texas governor, Rick Perry was always a big picture guy who led the chief executive’s office sort of like Captain Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek fame. Gather the staff around. Knock around options. Then the captain would declare: Make it so. This is a polite way of saying Rick Perry—whose name has been popping up lately as a potential chief of staff for President Donald Trump—was not a detail kind of guy. He kept competent people around him to execute his agenda.But he is not a micro-manger,

Ten years ago, Bernard Madoff’s multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, the biggest fraud in U.S. history, shocked the financial world. It soon emerged that a forensic accountant, Harry Markopolos, had been alerting regulators for years to Mr. Madoff’s fraud, but no one had listened. At Mr. Markopolos’s urging, the Securities and Exchange Commission created a cash-for-tips program, designed to encourage reports of financial wrongdoing and prevent the lapses in oversight that gave Mr. Madoff free rein. Today, an entire industry is devoted to surfacing tips from company insiders and expert analysts who scrutinize corporate filings.

George H.W. Bush wasn’t born in Texas, as the saying goes, but he got here as soon as he graduated from Yale. Over the next seven decades, he left an imprint on the Lone Star State that is matched by only a few. His legacy, however, may be defined as much by his quiet acts of generosity as by any grandiose act of statesmanship. Here, five Texans reflect on the man they once knew.

Mueller’s Gift to Obama

Robert Mueller looks to be approaching his endgame, and the press is alive with speculation as to how bad the special counsel’s report will be for President Trump. It’s also worth noticing how good Mr. Mueller has been to another president, Barack Obama, and his team. This benevolence was on display in the sentencing document the special counsel’s office filed on Tuesday for Mike Flynn. The former Trump national security adviser, we are told, has provided “substantial assistance,” sitting for 19 interviews that aided in “several ongoing investigations.” In light of this help, the Mueller team

Secretary of Defense James Mattis responded to criticisms after he and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave an intelligence brief to Senators on the murder of Saudi Jamal Khashoggi. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have called out the pair. “I think the Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State are in a bad spot because the president has given this bear hug to MBS and to the entire Saudi regime, so they are bound to carry out his bizarre policy,” Murphy said during a “Morning Joe” interview.

The Global Carbon Tax Revolt
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 12/4/2018 8:00:29     Post Reply
France’s violent Yellow Vest protests are now about many domestic concerns, but it’s no accident that the trigger was a fuel-tax hike. Nothing reveals the disconnect between ordinary voters and an aloof political class more than carbon taxation. The fault line runs between anti-carbon policies and economic growth, and France is a test for the political future of emissions restrictions. France already is a relatively low-carbon economy, with per-capita emissions half Germany’s as of 2014. French governments have nonetheless pursued an “ecological transition” to further squeeze carbon emissions from every corner

Trump attorneys ask Stormy Daniels to

Attorneys for President Trump asked a court Monday for nearly $800,000 in lawyers’ fees and penalties from adult-film actress Stormy Daniels for the failed defamation lawsuit against him. Attorney Charles Harder defended more than 500 hours his firm spent that rang up a nearly $390,000 legal bill for the president and asked for an equal amount in sanctions as a deterrent against a “repeat filer or frivolous defamation cases.” Harder said the fees and penalties were earned because of the extraordinary nature of the defamation case.

Schools in Brighton have been ordered to teach children as young as eight that people “of all genders” can have periods, as well as to install sanitary waste disposal units in every toilet room. The instructions were included in guidelines published by the local council earlier this month on ‘Taking a Period Positive Approach in Brighton & Hove Schools’, which assert there is “more work to do across all settings to prevent and reduce stigma related to periods and talking about periods”.

A South Carolina pastor defended buying his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini Urus as an eighth wedding anniversary present after coming under fire for the purchase. Pastor John Gray, the leader of Relentless Church in Greenville, S.C., came under fire for presenting his wife, Aventer, with the expensive vehicle. A video that went viral, which has since been deleted, showed the pastor surprising his wife with the keys to the luxury vehicle last week, the Charlotte Observer reported. The pastor was criticized by social media users questioning how he could afford the car.

US Rep.-elect Rashida Tlaib will be sworn into office next month while wearing a traditional Palestinian gown. The Michigan Democrat announced on social media Friday that she intends to wear a thobe to the ceremony. "Sneak peek: This is what I am wearing when I am sworn into Congress," she wrote on Instagram, including the hashtags #PalestinianThobe and #ForMyYama (Arabic for mother). (Snip) Following that win, Tlaib appeared at a celebration rally where she was draped in a Palestinian flag and her mother broke out in ululation, a high-pitched vocal sound many Middle Eastern women make in celebration.

While the job of a Green Beret entails eliminating U.S. enemies both here and abroad, one member of the 66-year-old special operations force is now being prosecuted for having done exactly that. According to reports, once-decorated Army Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn has been charged in the premeditated murder of an Afghani bomb maker suspected of murdering two Marines. The charge stems from actions the former Green Beret took on the field while deployed eight years ago and words he spoke with Fox News host Bret Baier six years afterward.

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets. The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base. The same week that The Weekly Standard’s troubles broke, Vanity Fair dropped a bombshell report about the struggles faced by those hip, millennial-targeted left-wing rags

Too bad. May it rest in peace!´ Trump tweeted on Saturday morning. It follows an announcement on Friday that the Weekly Standard, which Kristol co-founded in 1995, will be ceasing publication. Kristol, an avid Twitter user, responded to Trump´s tweet simply: ´@ me next time´. (Tweet/Photos) Trump´s attack
