The Democrats are proving there is no bottom to the gutter – Senator Feinstein, in a desperate and downright evil attempt to last-minute derail Kavanaugh, has said she received an anonymous denunciation of Kavanaugh and has referred it to Justice…where she’s likely relying on some Deep State malefactors to run with it, at least enough to lend this disgusting hit job some legitimacy.

This is the utter sh** of the left, folks – and it is what the Never Trumpers say we must vote for this November because Trump is so bad. F all these people! Get out and vote GOP as if your life depended on this November. Let’s take this garbage and shove it right up their a**.

Yes, as a matter of fact, this did piss me off. A lot.

Latest in liberal stupidity: Men’s preference for young women is a sign that masculinity is in crisis. Anyone want to break it to them that men find young women attractive because, well, sexual attraction has as its purpose procreation: you know, it’s rather biologically baked in for us to have a preference for sexual partners who can fulfill the biological purpose of sex?

So, a police force hires a man after determining he’s unable to handle stress…and then, in a stressful situation, he shoots a person. Now, why was he hired? Because he’s a Somali Muslim and diversity is our strength…

I see a Red Wave coming – because four separate forecasts have the Democrats winning the House.

    Welcome to the revolution Mark …. I couldn’t agree more.

    Is this the same Diane Feinstein that unknowingly employed a Chinese spy for nearly 20 years? And shouldn’t Democrats be forced to disavow their angry and violent base following the attempted stabbing of a GOP Congressional candidate? And if not, why not?

    If the Republicans had any balls, they would open up broad scope, endless investigations into every Democrat planning to run for President. I want to know if they even sneezed in the wrong direction. What’s good for the goose …….

    • fieldingclaymore September 13, 2018 / 5:24 pm

      How about one into the response to Maria in PR? Around 3000 US citizens died. 45 thinks it is another hoax.

      • Retired Spook September 13, 2018 / 5:43 pm

        This study is, at the very least, questionable, and is based on expected deaths during a specific period vs. actual deaths, so the total of 2,975 is a statistical number, not actual bodies where the death could be linked in some way to the Hurricane. So certainly not a hoax, but also not a legitimate, detailed study of actual deaths.

      • Cluster September 13, 2018 / 6:54 pm

        That’s a good idea Fielding …… but let’s start with the response to the Haiti earthquake in 2010. I think there’s a lot of investigative work to be done there, certainly with respect to the CGI. Knowing how ethical you are, I am sure you agree.

      • fieldingclaymore September 14, 2018 / 9:59 am

        I certainly agree that if there was malfeasance with the CGI and Haiti go after it. Republicans have had subpoena power from 2010 to date and haven’t as I recall had hearings on it. Also, wasn’t the FBI investigating something in Little Rock regarding the CGI? What happened to that?

        Not all things that pop up on Rush or Hannity et al. pan out to be accurate.

      • Cluster September 14, 2018 / 10:26 am

        EXACTLY. And that is why Trump is President ……. I think you might be starting to get it

      • fieldingclaymore September 14, 2018 / 11:02 am

        I know why he is President. Two horrible candidates and one was lazy. He was not that one. Also, the electoral college favors smallel rural states. His base.

      • Retired Spook September 14, 2018 / 11:27 am

        Also, the electoral college favors smaller rural states. His base.

        Do you understand the reasoning behind that? Would you consider Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin smaller, rural states? If we elected our president by popular vote, Hillary’s entire 2.8 million vote margin of victory was accounted for by her 1.5 million vote victory in the 5 boroughs of NYC and her 1.3 million vote victory in LA County.

      • fieldingclaymore September 14, 2018 / 1:31 pm

        No I wouldn’t consider them small. He won PA, WI & MI by like 80k. The last 5 presidential elections the GOP won the popular vote 1 time, but were elected 3 times. Those 3 millionish votes in urban areas don’t count as much as 30K in WI or the like. Thems the rules; I get it, but they value rural over urban.

      • M. Noonan September 15, 2018 / 9:37 pm

        But you’re actually asking the impossible – we have no idea how any of those elections would have turned out, popular vote-wise, if the popular vote ruled. In CA in 2016, it wasn’t merely a foregone conclusion that Hillary would win the State, but there was also no State-wide GOP candidate on the ballot (two Democrats squared off in the Senate race that year). There was nothing to motivate a California GOPer or GOP-leaner to show up and vote. That nearly 4.5 million GOPers did vote in the Presidential election in CA is testament to civic mindedness.

        But had it been a popular vote contest, then even if CA, as a State, was a lost cause, then the GOP would have been asinine not to invest time and money there. There are likely a couple million people in CA who could be made to vote GOP if it mattered. Same thing with places like New York. And, yes, there are Democrats in deep red States who also threw up the sponge but who might have voted if their vote in Alabama mattered…but, on balance, the highest population States trend Democrat, so there was a more downside on the GOP vote than on the Democrat vote (people like to vote on the winning side…Hillary’s vote in CA was about half a million higher than Obama’s vote in 2008…her vote probably represents the best Democrats can do in that State, give or take a couple hundred thousand votes).

        The bottom line is that a purely national popular vote election in 2016 would have added many millions of voters to the total…and given where the votes were and who mostly didn’t show up, it could have been a net gain for the GOP of several million votes.

      • Cluster September 14, 2018 / 2:25 pm

        You don’t really understand the Constitutional representative republic we have going here do you Fielding. That’s ok, most progressives don’t.

      • fieldingclaymore September 14, 2018 / 3:42 pm

        Just because I don’t like it all that much doesn’t mean I don’t understand it. The founders worry of tyranny of the majority is starting to work in the opposite. The minority elected Legislative and Executive branches govern over the wishes of the majority IMHO.

        You won fair and square. i don’ have to like the outcome.

      • jdge1 September 15, 2018 / 6:03 am

        Why do some people keep reiterating that Hillary won the popular vote when we don’t know? There were numerous uncounted absentee and mail-in votes. I don’t have the figures for the 2016 election but one article providing estimates for 2012 suggest that number is quite significant and believed to be even higher for 2016.

        In 2012, more than 46 million voters – almost 36% of the total – cast ballots in some manner other than at a traditional polling place on Election Day, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of state and federal election data. That figure includes 23.3 million people who cast civilian or military absentee ballots, 16.9 million who voted early (that is, in person during a specific period leading up to Election Day) and 6.3 million who mailed in their ballots.

    • Retired Spook September 14, 2018 / 12:24 pm

      One additional thing regarding the estimated deaths in Puerto Rico resulting from Hurricane Maria: has this method ever been used in the past to attribute deaths to any natural disaster?

    • Cluster September 14, 2018 / 4:38 pm

      Spook just accurately noted that Hillary’s popular vote edge was a direct result of NY and LA, two HUGE urban centers. I believe it much more important that the people in Wyoming have just as much of a voice as those additional 3 million people in just two urban centers ……. and that’s the genius of our Founders.

    I will leave this statement from the BCC here for comment:

    Are Black Journalists Canaries in the Coal Mine? With the 2016 election of Donald John Trump, 45 has ushered in a new wave of attacks on the 4th estate. These assaults have continued, almost daily, throughout his time in the Oval Office. It is the responsibility of our Black Journalists to report our truth and the impact 45’s policies have on Black Americans as well as minorities and immigrants. In this session, we will discuss why we must continue to protect our Freedom of Speech and our Freedom of the Press. After all, a free press is critical to the health and survival of our democracy.

    And then there is this:

    “Every single day in 2018, we’re experiencing the trauma of powerful people in institutions working diligently to demolish civil rights protections, diminish the advancements we’ve made as a people, and destroy our collective ability to achieve purpose,” CNN political commentator Angela Rye

    I am curious as to the level of daily trauma. And what exactly is “collective ability to achieve purpose”

    • Retired Spook September 14, 2018 / 9:42 am

      There’s a HUGE difference between criticizing journalists and arresting journalists and throwing them in a Gulag. Which side is it that is constantly attempting to eliminate or modify elements of the Bill of Rights? Yeah, not us. In fact, the Left has refined projection to an art form. Virtually everything nefarious they accuse the right of doing they are already guilty of themselves.

  4. Retired Spook September 14, 2018 / 9:36 am

    My wife and I had an interesting discussion at dinner last night with some good friends. I posited that the Left is getting impatient and at some point the only option left to them will be violence, particularly if their blue wave doesn’t materialize in November. He suggested the opposite might easily be true — that the Left is behaving the way they are (bat-sh*t crazy and unhinged) in an attempt to goad fringe elements of the right into taking the first shot. I’ve often said how proud I am of the Right in general at keeping our cool, keeping our powder dry and turning the other cheek, but I know people involved in the Militia movement as well as a few radical members of Oath Keepers who are just itching to start shooting Leftists, and I don’t think it would take much to push them over the edge. I also wouldn’t put it past radical elements of the Left to orchestrate some sort of false flag event to facilitate it. And once that flame is lit, it’s going to be extremely difficult to extinguish.

    This is priceless:

    • Retired Spook September 14, 2018 / 10:40 am

      Referring to Avanati as a media whore does a disservice to prostitutes. Tucker missed a golden opportunity to ask Avanati, if Stormy Daniels is not a porn star, just exactly what is she? I’m not into porn, but early on I watched one of her videos (research only, heh), and she’s a porn star. Well, let me rephrase that — she makes pornographic videos. With nothing to compare her to, I can’t honestly say she’s a star.

        So maybe not so last minute?

        DIFI sat on the info for two months, so no, not last minute. If Grassley had 65 women lined up to vouch for Kavanaugh, it was likely because DIFI threatened them with the allegations back in July. I literally wouldn’t put ANYTHING past the Dems at this point.

  8. Retired Spook September 15, 2018 / 1:52 pm

    I saw the following comment on another forum that really got me thinking: “Why does compromise always feel like surrender?” We’ve had it pounded into our heads that nothing ever gets done in politics without compromise. If compromise was between competing good ideas, then I would agree. But with the ideological divide in this country widening literally by the day, compromise is almost never about competing GOOD ideas, One side advocates for freedom while the other side advocates against freedom, so any compromise is going to diminish freedom.

    • M. Noonan September 15, 2018 / 9:27 pm

      One thing, we lack a Statesman of the first order. Trump is proving a first rate executive, but I’ve thus far seen no indication that he can create a Grand Compromise which will allow the increasingly hostile parts of the United States to live in amity. We aren’t quite to the point where people are willing a Civil War into existence, but we’re close. I keep thinking, these days, of the Spanish Civil War…after 10 years of increasingly acerbic politics, people seemed kind of relieved when the war broke out: everyone knew it was going to at last end the debate. One side or the other would prevail…and as both sides knew literally everything was at stake, they fought with exemplary bravery (and brutality).

      We know that our side will win – we represent, I think, a large population of potential fighters (keeping in mind that in any Civil War situation, at least a third will just try to keep their heads down and keep out of it), and we’ve also got far more guns and far more people with practical, military experience. But don’t discount the hard core left – in the crunch, plenty on the left will find their back bones and come out fighting. And I have seen some leftists who are proclaiming they are arming themselves.

      I still hold out hope that the boil can be lanced – but I’m ever more doubtful. I worry that some idiot on the left will commit the enormous Act which convinces the right that it is victory or death.

      • Ryan Murphy September 15, 2018 / 10:11 pm

        There is no use for a statesman with the left as currently compromised. What compromise can you reach with them, even if you had the greatest statesman of all time? There is no grand compromise with the left.

  9. Jeremiah September 16, 2018 / 12:44 am

    I know my opinion doesn’t hold much water in the political realm, I just thought I’d pop in to give one for whatever it’s worth.

    I think the only reason we haven’t gone into a modern civil war era is because people don’t want to leave their lives of comfort. And what I mean by lives of comfort is most modern homes today are well insulated, they have good roofs to keep the rain and snow out, they have heating and cooling systems to keep you warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. Most homes today have state of the art entertainment smartphones, flat screen TVs with optional internet connect. These basic needs are what keep America from going out into the field and fighting for and defending freedom. They don’t want to leave their lives of comfort to fight for the very cause that allows them to have their needs met. And provided that they don’t get gumption to do so, the pot is going to be boiling, and it will be too late…Not for them, mind you, but for their children and grandchildren. The parents will have long since left this world, but their children will be here to endure the pain and agony of a communist-dictator ruled world. I know most have seen the images from the Nazi Germany, so we don’t need to go back and refresh our eyes with that sad imagery.

    I don’t really have anything else much to add, except that, I hope Conservative, God-fearing, patriotic Americans will wake up and find the courage to leave an America for their children better than the one they left behind.

    And, I hope when the fighting begins IF it begins that God will grant me the courage, strength, a good hand and a sharp mind, as well. Because I want to be there no matter the cost.

    President Trump is a good President, he knows business and trade very well, and he has America moving. I’ve never seen so many trucks on the road as I’ve seen over the past 10 months. Businesses are booming everywhere, and people are working. When Obama was in office, the country was almost at a standstill, and Trump has REVERSED that trend. In truly MAJOR ways. So I’m thankful for that.

    But, we must not get COMPLACENT….Just because the President has the country doing well financially, leftists are daily, secretly rewiring the brains of the children of those parents who are out working, and reaping the benefits of this great economy.

    Every year, twelfth graders all across this country, in every state, from Maine to Hawaii, to Alaska, and all points/states in between graduate from high school who are not the mind to vote Democrat, and this is what is killing America. And it will if something is not done in the near future to reverse this travesty.

    The President is a powerful man, but unfortunately, and what is so troubling is he has to power over the institution of learning to flush out all of the anti-American literature, and anti-God “science”.

    I’m sorry to have went on a rant, but I have a hard time getting people to understand my thinking, and this situation is very burdensome, you can feel it, it’s like you’re holding up a great weight, and you just want it to be lifted…So you can breath.

    No, I’m not venting. This is a legitimate concern. Let me give you an example, the Great Pyramids in Egypt, could you see one man trying to cut, carry, and place all of those stones by himself? Why no! He couldn’t do it. But, you take 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 100, 1,000, 10,000, 50,000, 500,000, 1,000,000, 100,000,000…And so on…Now you have the man power, now the rubber meets the road. Problem is, you throw a wrench in the spokes…like, this man or that man and another and another, they all say, ooooh I’m watching my flat screen, or I’m enjoying my recliner, or I’ve got plans with my wife and kids, and so on the list goes, the excuses pile up, one after the other. Then, well, Rome will just have to wait, but likely will never get built, and their predecessors (their CHILDREN) will have to dream about where their next warm meal will come from.

    It’s time to do something!

    With all the derogatory info that’s surfaced on Kavanaugh’s accuser, I’d love to see her testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee under oath.

    Someone, I think maybe it was Juan Williams on The Five the other night asked why Republicans accused of malfeasance should be believed while Democrats should not? The better question, however, would be, should accusations against someone with a known history of malfeasance (ie., Bill Clinton & Ted Kennedy) be treated the same as a one-time accusation with zero corroboration that surfaces after 35 years on the eve of that person’s confirmation to the highest court in the land?

    Just about the time you think the Dems can’t sink any lower, they do. How does whatever that is beneath whale sh*t in the ocean look, Democrats?

    • Cluster September 17, 2018 / 5:01 pm

      I want her to testify. I would ask her when her first sexual encounter was and was it with a man or woman?. I would ask her if she has ever looked at pornography ever, even just once. I would ask her how the traumatic episode was for her and what counseling she sought afterwards. How many years was she in therapy. Has she ever had an abortion? Has she ever cheated on her husband? How much does she drink? How often? Has she ever smoked pot? Has she ever tried harder drugs? Do you currently see a psychiatrist?

      • Retired Spook September 17, 2018 / 9:21 pm

Rodriguez had been one of President Donald Trump’s guests at this year’s State of the Union speech, and the President tweeted out condolences on Friday night.

    Holy smokes. Any conservative who doesn’t start taking this shit seriously had better wake up. We are in a fight for this country from outside forces who are being aided and abetted by the Democrats and our very own media.
