Fox News vs. El Paso Shooter's Manifesto The Daily Show


This is actually quite chilling!


Trump's approval is underwater in Ohio, Iowa, Nebraska and Florida

These are normally red states.

Negative 11 in Iowa? Wow! Farmers are pissed!

Newsweek: TRUMP CRITICS POST PHOTOS OF POVERTY, HOMELESSNESS IN REPUBLICAN DISTRICTS ACROSS U.S. BY

Critics of President Donald Trump responded to his recent labeling of Elijah Cummings' congressional district in Maryland as "disgusting" and "rodent infested" with photos of neighborhoods in Republican-controlled districts that also appeared to be rife with homelessness, poverty and waste.

Trump on Saturday railed against Cummings and Baltimore — about half of which falls in the congressman's district — calling the city "disgusting rat and rodent infested." Rather than decry or disavow the president's remarks, Trump's allies and conservative media outlets like Fox News attempted to bolster his claim by sharing photos and video of destitute and dirty portions of the Maryland metropolis. White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said Sunday he'd have been "fired" from running his former South Carolina congressional district if it had as much crime and homelessness.

But Trump critics began pointing out these images were cherry-picked and failed to tell the whole story of Baltimore or the many suburban and rural communities included in Cummings' district, they also posted pictures of their own of neighborhoods blighted by poverty and crime.

Any thoughts on how brutal the ads against Trump will be and what kind of damage they will do?

There are so many folks who live in a box and have no idea all the crap he has pulled. The damaging material Dems have on him is endless! Hopefully at least it will suppress the Trump vote a bit? Get some people to stay home?

Not really paying attention to the polls right now. Remember when Dean was crushing everyone?

Most people don't make up their minds until a few days before they begin voting. About half or more of folks will at that point start taking a closer look and you will see certain candidates with momentum and some losing ground quickly at that point. How things go in Iowa, NH and SC will have a big impact on things too. Not to mention the influence of campaign ads in those states.

It's anyone's guess who will start taking off as voting starts. I predict a lot of voters will look at who they think is the safest bet to beat Trump and vote on those instincts.

Unfiltered Voices From Donald Trump's Crowds The New York Times

A Majority of Economists Think the Next Recession Will Come by the 2020 Election

Erik Sherman Fortune

How’s the economy doing?

Better than you might expect, and worse than you might have hoped, according to the National Association of Business Economics.

According to the organization’s latest survey of 53 professional economic forecasters, the consensus is that the economy will continue to grow at a 2.6% pace in 2019, down from last year’s 2.8% rate, and will slow to 2.1% in 2020. However, as the outlook for this year still seems good, a majority think a recession is possible before the next presidential inauguration.

Personal spending remains a bright spot. “The consumer continues to be the driver in the U.S. economy,” said Jack Kleinhenz, chief economist for the National Retail Federation and one of the analysts of the report. “Real personal consumption expenditures for 2019 is 2.4% year-over-year growth. It was 2.6% in 2018.”

This is so spot on! I have to use this from now on!

Just saw the following on someones Facebook:

Challenge

If Trump didn't say racist things,
repeat what he said to a co-worker
and see how long you stay employed.

When you think about how oppressed minorities have been in the US

from slavery, to the black codes, police brutality, lynchings, internment camps, child separations and on and on and on, it's amazing they almost NEVER do mass shootings to lash out at society when whites who are often from very well to do families with every need filled, do them at such a high rate, often AGAINST the OPPRESSED!

What is the deal with so many white folks needing to kill everyone on the fricking block and people less fortunate than themselves? Speaking as a white person.

Living in New Mexico I am so excited about Valerie Plame running for Congress!

I haven't been this excited about a candidate in years. Been listening to her and she is fricking extremely impressive as a candidate!
