  1. It's Been Exactly 1 Year Since The Most Insane Moment Of The Trump Presidency

    It was exactly one year ago Friday when then-President Donald Trump delivered what may have been the wildest few moments in presidential history.

    As the nation battled the coronavirus pandemic, Trump went on television and delivered what could only be described as medical improv. He said government scientists would be testing “very powerful light” inside the body to kill the virus, as well as disinfectant taken “by injection” which would be “almost a cleaning.”

    if you are going to ignore content

    and only go by qualifications of a reference,

    then what are the qualifications

    of your fact checking sites...

    (you know...as in....besides who pays 🤑 their salaries )

     

    PS: have you ever seen a scenario a non-"professional" or academic, might actually be a better reference than the vested interests ?   Maybe true here or not....but you will never know, unless you can address the actual content.

    BTW....how is that "bounty for soldiers" scandal you are so fond of, working out for you ?    better than the dossier you love so much ?   some real reference qualifications right there huh...🤓

    Travis Campbell, a PhD student in economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, released his preliminary findings on the Social Science Research network as a preprint, meaning the study has yet to receive a formal peer review.

    While Campbell’s research does not encompass the events of summer 2020, George Floyd’s killing and the subsequent wave of protests became potentially the largest movement in American history, the sudden growth of which relied on a wave of anger and grief at the police homicides Americans are continually greeted with on the news. Opinion columnists, activists, lawmakers, and even the president of the United States (current and former) have weighed in on these protests and what the appropriate policy changes should be. But first, it’s important to grapple with how the protests have already changed policing.

    From 2014 to 2019, Campbell tracked more than 1,600 BLM protests across the country, largely in bigger cities, with nearly 350,000 protesters. His main finding is a 15 to 20 percent reduction in lethal use of force by police officers — roughly 300 fewer police homicides — in census places that saw BLM protests.

    Campbell’s research also indicates that these protests correlate with a 10 percent increase in murders in the areas that saw BLM protests. That means from 2014 to 2019, there were somewhere between 1,000 and 6,000 more homicides than would have been expected if places with protests were on the same trend as places that did not have protests.

    economics student huh??...🤡

    If I didn't have hawks here,

    I'd have a bunch of 7-8 foot black rat snakes  (rat snakes reach lengths of 10 feet)

    in the barn and pool house...

    well... sometimes I still do. 🤷‍♂️

     

    PS: Maybe sometime I'll explain how stupid I look....you know....

    grabbing a 7 footer (not wanting to kill it, they keep the mice away remember 🤔) and having to bola swing it around my head (anti bite centrifugal force 🤓) as I run it to a natural marshy area behind the property....I gotta look pretty silly doing that 🤣

     

     

     

    I pulled the cover off of my pile of fire wood last year and had 2 gardener snake's and a small Rat snake laying under there nice and cozy. I also had a big rat snake 4ft. longish come right up my walkway looking for some chimpmonks...it was real fast!

    had a pair of local red tails this morning....

     

     

    nice...I was walking around my block the other day and saw a Harrier Hawk land on a tree ahead of me. I stopped to check him out. He took off and flew over my head and he had a snake in his claws! About 2 feet long. This is the third time I've seen hawks with snakes in the past 2 years. I had no idea they would eat them...easy pickings I guess?

    And in the same place you found that story, you could see this story from the NY Times:

    Republicans Who Challenged Election Results Campaign Donations

    WASHINGTON — Republicans who were the most vocal in urging their followers to come to Washington on Jan. 6 to try to reverse President Donald J. Trump’s loss, pushing to overturn the election and stoking the grievances that prompted the deadly Capitol riot, have profited handsomely in its aftermath, according to new campaign data.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/republicans-who-challenged-election-results-campaign-donations/ar-BB1fL48f?li=BBnb7Kz

     

    Perhaps it's just that all Republicans are surging in the fundraising department, because people aren't liking what they see from the Democrat Party.

    how about the BIG rip-off Trump did to his posse?...having the donation form pre-filled out to have auto-payments set-up?...LOL....he scammed the people who "love" him and give him money...he pissed off a lot of his base with that scam...what a NICE guy!

    House Republicans Who Voted to Impeach Trump See Fundraising Boost

    John McCormick, Chad Day  4 hrs ago.
    As they prepare to face primary challengers, the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump after his supporters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 raised significantly more money during the first quarter of 2021 than they did two years earlier.

    The group, leveraging the power of incumbency, also swamped their GOP primary opponents in almost every instance during the first round of fundraising since angering Mr. Trump with their votes, new Federal Election Commission filings show.

    While all the incumbents outraised challengers who filed campaign finance reports, it is still early in the two-year election cycle and money is just one factor in typically low-turnout primaries.

    Mr. Trump’s political-action committees could also weigh in financially on some of the contests, and his endorsements could carry significant weight with the party’s base. The PACs aren’t required to report their latest totals until July, but one of them, Save America PAC, started the year with $31 million in the bank and has continued to raise money since then.

    In a speech earlier this year at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where he called out all 10 by name, Mr. Trump told his supporters to “get rid of them all” in next year’s elections.

    Nine of the 10 incumbents already have primary challengers, in some cases multiple ones. Some GOP strategists worry such party infighting could undermine their prospects of taking back control of Congress in 2022, though half of the districts represented by Republicans who voted for impeachment were won by Mr. Trump by 5 percentage points or more in November’s general election and are unlikely Democratic takeover targets.

    The race for Wyoming’s single House seat is a good example of the dynamics at play. The $1.5 million raised by the main campaign committee for Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the highest-ranking House Republican who is contending with impeachment-vote consequences, represented almost five times what she raised in the first quarter of 2019.

  11. Trump’s influence over GOP is tested in early 2022 fundraising

    Former President Donald Trump's legacy continues to loom over the GOP, as both those backed by the pugnacious would-be kingmaker and those who have made their name by siding against him are boasting strong fundraising numbers as they head toward the 2022 election cycle.

    In the first signs of Trump's influence over the 2022 midterm race, significant fundraising sums are being reported by strong Trump allies, Republicans who have fundraised with him, and candidates on both sides of races in which Trump has taken sides.

    With the former president plotting retribution against his political enemies, the numbers suggest his involvement may actually be boosting both the candidates he's supporting and the ones he's hoping to oust. The 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach him and whose seats are considered either safe or competitive -- including Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill. -- all posted strong first-quarter sums, with many of them enjoying their best quarter of fundraising in years.

    Cheney, who Trump has targeted by name, is fending off pro-Trump forces who accuse her of betraying the former president through her impeachment vote. Still, she brought in $1.5 million.

    I'll boldly predict that none of the above will seriously contend for a Republican nomination in 2024.

    Many Republicans wouldn't cross the street to piss on 2 or 3 of them if they were on fire.

     

     

    You need the "center" vote of this country to win the Presidency...the one's the hard right wouldn't piss on would get a lot of votes from Independents.

    I am every bit as terrified-if not more- of what I see from the woke mob and the media/social media complicit in the pushing of The Narrative than I was with Trump. But, I'm a liberal. (I'm not a leftist.) And Trump really is deplorable. Yes, I realize there are instances of egregious dishonesty by the media regarding Trump (I know the bounty story the media pushed just fell apart). But, I can read what he has said, listen to what he says at his rallies, and consider things he's done which are not in dispute and still see he's deplorable. 

    It seems clear that, all things considered-and 'all things' involves the media and the general national hysteria- the left has begun to completely dominate and has shown total willingness to operate in a totalitarian fashion. And, so, given the fact that they've gone completely off the rails, I am ready to oppose them. At least until they've been neutered. But, I'm not going to support Trump, or someone like Matt Gaetz, or any of the Qanon freaks. 

    Am I as fucked as it seems? Or might we see someone reasonable step forward as the voice of the right? No Trump, nobody nakedly crooked, no Jesus freaks, and no Qanon freaks. Any chance we can see someone not in those categories emerge to lead the right? 

    Nice post...I think the real Republicans will start to rise again. Trump is involved in many law suits and his availability and focus will change when they start to roll out meanwhile Liz Cheney and now ex House Speaker Bohner are standing their ground and calling Trump out for the riot he started. Will this mentality continue? or do the Republicans all get amnesia and forgive the guy who sold them a BIG lie? I think Trump will start to fade away as reality starts win some Republicans over....having no Twitter has neutered him IMO. He's no longer in the news 24/7 and fading way by the day. I would vote for Sen. Ben Sasse if he ran...or Gov. Kascich.

    BTW Concha...We just had confirmation that Maniford shared Trump's campaign info. with a Russian intell. agent...so the "fake" Russian MSM story wasn't "fake" at all....Russia helped Trump get elected....White Nationals?..you forget the guys marching around with torches who Trump called good guys??
