I'm so happy Duke lost!

Just to put it out there.

Taibbi: It's Official - 'Russiagate' Is This Generation's WMD

There will be people protesting: the Mueller report doesn’t prove anything! What about the 37 indictments? The convictions? The Trump tower revelations? The lies! The meeting with Don, Jr.? The financial matters! There’s an ongoing grand jury investigation, and possible sealed indictments, and the House will still investigate, and…

Stop. Just stop. Any journalist who goes there is making it worse.

For years, every pundit and Democratic pol in Washington hyped every new Russia headline like the Watergate break-in. Now, even Nancy Pelosi has said impeachment is out, unless something “so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan” against Trump is uncovered it would be worth their political trouble to prosecute.

The biggest thing this affair has uncovered so far is Donald Trump paying off a porn star. That’s a hell of a long way from what this business was supposedly about at the beginning, and shame on any reporter who tries to pretend this isn’t so.

The story hyped from the start was espionage: a secret relationship between the Trump campaign and Russian spooks who’d helped him win the election.


Taibbi - a snake in the grass.

The vetting of Bernie: Bread lines are a good thing

Iran-Contra, outing a covert CIA agent, lying about WMD in Iraq - the GOP is immune to impeachment

since the hyper-partisan Gingrich era.

Trump lies 99% of the time but he told the truth when he said he could kill someone on 5th Avenue and get away with it.

Revenge is won at the ballot box and only at the ballot box.

Isn't it odd how Matt Taibbi slammed Obama for years, spent years in Russia, yet now is quiet

(relatively) about the Trump regime? Is it odd that he has never called Trump a "criminal co-conspirator"?

I never trusted that smirk-ass "independent".

Katie Hill (CA-25) is the real star of the 2018 class

Katie Hill: can 'America's most millennial candidate' win?
The grassroots Hill has never held office, but her youth-oriented campaign typifies a new kind of poster child for the Democrats


She won against a GOP incumbent - unlike some of her cohorts who had easy wins.

'QAnon' book claiming Democrats eat children is climbing the Amazon charts

Source: Marketwatch

The book, which says it was written by a dozen “anonymous Q followers, decoders and citizen journalists known collectively as Where We Go One We Go All (WWG1WGA),” claims that Democrats murder and eat children and that the government created AIDS, polio and Lyme disease. Then there’s the belief that the world is run by a Satanic cabal led by Hillary Clinton.

There’s more. So much more. But we’ll leave it there.

QAnon emerged from the dark corners of the internet and into the national spotlight thanks primarily to supporters of Donald Trump who would show up at his rallies wearing clothes and holding signs referencing the “Q” conspiracy.

Mike Rothschild, a conspiracy-theory expert, told NBC that the book is just another way for the QAnon movement to cash in on its gullible followers, calling it “a bold new step in the endless grift at the heart of Q.”

What do you do when the other side is insane?

Beto O'Rourke will win my vote for this one sentence on capitalism and climate change

I'm a capitalist," O'Rourke replied. "I don't see how we're able to meet any of the fundamental challenges that we have as a country without, in part, harnessing the power of the market.


This is perfect and straight-forward. The most important issue of our time won't be confronted until individuals vote for clean energy with their pocketbooks - not their tax dollars.

Already, this "Green New Deal" is viewed as a Trojan Horse for new entitlement programs.

Climate change solutions must be market driven.
