Feb 05 11:59am @9.2.3 Yeah, I know - but Obama isn't in office right now and I don't think he took the keys he gave Putin for Ukraine with him.

Last night President Donald Trump delivered a memorable State of the Union Address. Truly one of the best Iv'e heard. In highlighting his first term achievements and moving on to second term priorities, I heard the President reach out beyond his base of support.The first portion of his speech dealt with the prosperous economy, correctly pointed out that the unemployment rate was the lowest...

The Downfall of the Republican Party

The Downfall of the Republican Party


Via: PJ  •  48 comments  •  3 weeks ago
On Friday, Republicans in the United States Senate—with the exception of Mitt Romney and Susan Collins—voted to prevent John Bolton, Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, from testifying in the impeachment trial of the president. The reason they did so is undeniable: They did not want to hear from the most credible fact witness of all, one whose account would further implicate...

Looks like the technology is going to take the fall for the problems with the Iowa caucus.   Apparently the new app was built by a startup company that did not properly test the system.   The counting worked, but the reporting had a bug that did not account for all votes.    Major failure for all involved who did not properly roll-out and seriously test the app and the broader ground system of...

A Michigan school district's parent meeting about racial discrimination turned ugly Monday when a Latino man, speaking about the adversity that his kids had faced in the district, was reportedly met with heckling. Adrian Iraola immigrated to Saline, Mich., from Mexico City in 1980 and sent all three of his children — now grown — to Saline Area Schools. Iraola was recounting to a group...

It would be an understatement to say that the DNC is off to a rocky start in the nominating process, as a dozen hours after the Iowa Caucus vote there are still no results. People were left struggling to even log in or download the new app the DNC wanted used. Not only was there frustration with trying to use the new system but there was suspicion of the DNC. A few candidates even proclaimed...

If you watched the Superbowl last night , you probably realize that the football game was the calmest part of the whole show. It was relatively easy to follow what was going on, compared with the cast of thousands in the halftime show and the commercials.  I was wishing somehow one of those old commercials where Wilford Brimley stands behind a desk and sternly and calmly tells...

Before the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump was gaveled into session, Chief Justice John Roberts presided over a swearing-in ceremony where all 100 senators pledged to be impartial jurors. The liberal media zeroed in on that pledge and decried Senate Republicans who seemed to be siding with the President. But a Media Research Center study of broadcast evening news...

I assume that Marco Rubio will be endorsing William Weld, Joe Walsh, or some other candidate to be the Republican nominee for president. And/or he will vote for the Democratic candidate, or some other candidate for president , other than Trump, in November.  After all, Rubio has said that Trump is guilty as charged of abuse of power.  "my threshold analysis, which already assumed that...
