Dems Are Going Down - Bigggly

Posted by Roy Ellis on July 21, 2017 at 10:23 PM

Was watching the press conference held by the Mayor of some town in Minn. This is the fourth day following the murder of a woman citizen by a city police officer. The Mayor trotted out the old tried and true speech about how great the police force was and what great things the Mayor had done to ensure a top notch police force, and so on - - -

Six Degrees of Separation From Putin? You'll Need a Whiteboard

Posted by AllardK on July 19, 2017 at 2:32 PM

Will Staples have a summer special on whiteboards? Because if you don't like using Power Point, maybe a nice little whiteboard would be a good way to follow the expanding cast of characters in the won't-be-ending-for-a-long-time Russia probes. And guess what? There should be enough room on that whiteboard to accommodate both sides of the aisle. So to speak. One could even play 6 degrees of separation from Putin.

How much do you know about the 11th amendment to the U.S. Constitution?

Jared and Brad - From Geniuses to Evil Geniuses?

Posted by AllardK on July 14, 2017 at 12:41 PM

Remember Brad Parscale? He mostly worked out of San Antonio and was hired by Jared Kushner to help put together a digital strategy that was able to target where Trump would give stump speeches, among other things. A very successful strategy, despite the laughs Trump's frantic final rounds of speeches in places like Michigan and Pennsylvania produced among much of the political class back in the fall of 2016.

Charlie Gard and the European Welfare State

Posted by AllardK on July 11, 2017 at 5:37 PM

Is Charlie Gard in pain? We can imagine he is. The young child is also being kept alive by medical technology unavailable a few decades ago. And is being soothed by that very technology, to the extent it can alleviate any pain the young boy feels. The European Court of Human Rights, however, has another rather toxic drip-feed that it uses to slowly crush the will of Charlie's parents to attempt new, and yes risky, therapies to try and keep their son alive.

Putin and Trump Jawing for more than 1 1/2 Hours At This Point

Posted by Roy Ellis on July 7, 2017 at 11:50 AM

I like to think I'm fairly astute at recognizing political issues for what they are. But, I haven't been able to discern why the dems/fake news are harping so loudly about Trump discussing the 'election meddling' with Putin.

Big Moment Coming Up For President Trump

Posted by Roy Ellis on July 5, 2017 at 11:01 PM

One wonders what President Trump is thinking about being the leader of the free world for the next several years. Within the last few months some serious developments have taken place around the world. In the business world he could just fold his cards and bail out of a situation should he choose.

Trump's Tweetings Are Music To My Ears

Posted by Roy Ellis on July 1, 2017 at 8:12 PM

Everyday, everyday the fake news and talking heads industry labels Trump with every negative -ist and -gny word in the dictionary. This, from folks who are mostly degreed and portray a lifestyle of pedigree and ethical purity. So much BULLSHIT = = =

Leaks in D.C. - Ben Rhodes Is No Haldeman

Posted by AllardK on June 28, 2017 at 9:40 PM

He's still very much at it. Ben Rhodes' echo chamber has continued functioning since the November elections, with the only change being the target of the steady stream of leaks that it manages in conjunction with media like the Washington Post. In a somewhat overlooked article in the Washington Free Beacon by Adam Kredo, unnamed officials (yes they're leaking as well, it's true) expressed anger and concern over how former Obama officials or even current government officials - likely at State and in the intel community - are feeding friendly reporters a steady diet of compromising information.

Will Democrats Realize That Russia Fatigue Is Setting in?

Posted by AllardK on June 27, 2017 at 12:31 PM

Google Christophe Wray and you just might get a high-end furniture store in London, UK in that little featured box that usually appears on the RHS of a google search page. I just did. Ok that's unfair. It's a design store with lighting fixtures, furniture and goodness knows what else. Not just a furniture store.

The FBI Pulls an Extreme Rabbit Out of It's Hat

Posted by AllardK on June 22, 2017 at 2:14 PM

There is no subtle way to say this. The FBI's briefing on the GOP baseball practice shooting by John Hodgkinson is a flagrant attempt to bury the politics of the shooting and treat it as an angry man going postal who just happened to be at a baseball field in suburban Alexandria, Virginia, and snapped for no reason at all and simply started randomly shooting.

The Triumvirate That Now Runs D.C.

Posted by AllardK on June 16, 2017 at 2:58 PM

It's not quite a Roman Triumvirate, with Cesar, Pompey and Crassus in an uneasy alliance of power sharing. It's not quite a Latin American Junta Military, with an Army, Navy, and an Air Force Generalissimo sharing power until they start removing each other from their baroque, carved mahogany seats of power.

Mueller, Burr, and now Grassley et tu?

Guns On The Premises Made All The Difference

Posted by Weary_Willie on June 14, 2017 at 2:24 PM

Republicans were the targets of an angry Democrat and, except for the presence of guns in the hands of their defenders, could have been "wiped out".
