      Jeb fixed it, all right. He fixed the 2000 election for his brother. He fixed it so voters would be disenfranchised.

      He deserves to lose his current bid, and any future bid. Begone, Jeb!

    In Louisiana two black cops arrested and charge with killing 6 year old white kid. In Cleveland two white cops not charge for killing 12 year old black kid Tamir Rice. Cleveland DA is doing all he can to get the white cops off for murdering Rice. I have said all along if it were black cops killing white men, white teenage boys, white kids, it would be a different story. And what happen to that 6 year old was not right, but neither was what happen to Rice, and so many other blacks that I can’t name.

      The speed at which the arrest was made of these two officers boggles the mind. Within seventy-two hours these officers were arrested, tried, and convicted.

        Good West Coast morning Chipsticks & TOD family.

        I was shocked and then saddened when I heard this report this morning. The child’s father was trying to hit the officers with his car that contained his child – yet these two “black” police officers have been arrested and charged for killing this child – because of his father’s actions, this child is dead. Yet the Police Chief was seen on television saying how awful this shooting was. 😯

      I told you that there will be more of these lies that come out…this man should have stuck to neurosurgery, he would have had admiration and praise for his good work. Instead, he will be remembered as a pathological liar and a fraud. Really, really poor judgement on his part!

      Morning everyone….trust me, there’s more still…

        Good Morning DF

        He didn’t think this running for President stuff would take off like it has. It was all about raising his profile to make more money off his books. Now he is caught in a web and can’t find his way out.

          exactly. trump too is just building his “brand” but he is of course media savvy and can handle it, including his eventual exit from the race, but cray-cray is in way over his head.

            Well, they figure if Palin in all her idiocy could do it and make millions why not them.

            Herman Cain took over Neil Boortz’s radio show when Boortz retired in 2013 and wrote a book off his gimmick 9-9-9

            There’s million to be made off of running for President. I should write a book about it myself and cash in on some of those Benjamins that escape me each month.

    • 37 globalcitizenlinda
      November 7, 2015 at 9:24 am

      well, why is anyone surprised any more?

      I wrote here yesterday that the West Point story is most likely not the last of the lies the blabbering lying surgeon has made.

      I also included a prediction that soon people are going to be digging into his professional life and they are more likely going to find crap his admirers will not want to hear;

      we all know this kind of personality who is so arrogant that his self-importance makes him/her want to even seem bigger than life by lying some more.

      if that person then gets a “fan club” to hype them up, then a lot will go to their head and they will completely loose even the dignity they previously had;

      we are watching the layers of lies he has cultivated over time being peeled off one by one – and its not pretty. reminds me of cosby

        I think that I’ve read many surgeons have a high degree of egotism. It’s a personality trait that helps them with their work. In his case it send to be full blown narcissism. It is costing him his reputation and will make him a joke for the rest of his life.

    • 40 4morefor44
      November 7, 2015 at 9:31 am

      i left comments here a long time ago questioning all the “brilliant brain surgeon” talk around cray-cray carson. i wanted to see proof of these claims, since lying is what republicans do. plain and simple. that needs to be people’s starting point when thinking about anything a republican says. it’s like ron and rand paul and all their “doctor” talk with little to no discernible real world experience doing that.

      now we see cray-cray carson exposed as a pathological liar about nearly everything in his life story, and we can assume most of “doctoring” was not on people, but on the truth.

      I watched his press conference this morning as I was getting ready for work, all I can say is that this guy is a piece of work. I’m starting to think that he might have some mental issues. lord know what type of demons this guy is fighting.

      my guess: the political prospects of rubio is going to destroyed by the bush crime family;

      anyone who knows anything about politics could have predicted that rubio may have “won” the sparring on stage with shrub3, but that this was not the end – it was a first bout in a long fight.

      – shrub3 feels entitled to the gop nomination and the thugs in and around him can’t let rubio get the upper hand.

      – since they are alleged former friends/mentor, they each know the dirt on the other and soon the rest of the country will hear the garbage being thrown out at each

      • November 7, 2015 at 10:29 am

        They’re both psychopaths so no real friendship, just using each other for their own ends. So now their usefulness is done, they’ll rip each other to shreds.

      It won’t matter to his supporters. They vote for liars, cheaters, adulterers, nothing matters to them except opposing abortion and gay rights, or some other tribal marker. They think they are protecting their moral principles when the truth is that they have compromised their moral principles so many times in order to be true to the tribe, they have no morals left.

    My one comment on Rubio: What a liar! Fortunately, the press member kept pushing him, but then, of course, he ended the interview. We’re talking basics in handling credit cards: not, as they say, rocket science. What a fraud…….also, had to get the water!

      I saw a bit of Bernie’s interview with Maddow last night as I was watching “Casino Royale” for the thousandth time. Bernie never gives any specifics on how he plans to do anything. It’s always I marched with KIng, young people, and revolution revolution and revolution.

      • 60 donna dem 4 obama
        November 7, 2015 at 10:02 am

        I have been following his campaign since early this summer and I can tell you that his followers don’t give two cents about specifics. They are all just totally enthralled with the notion that he is going to give them all free college, free healthcare, magically will destroy wall street and raise everyone’s salaries with the stroke of a pen. It’s all fairy dust and not based in reality so we will never see any specifics because the things he is proposing (as much as I like a lot of them) are simply not possible.

          November 7, 2015 at 10:57 am

          Thank you Donna for saying this. I have several very good friends who are so enthralled with Bernie. I have to walk a fine line about what I say. I did tell them I would vote for him if he became the nominee but nothing else. They all act like Bernie could do everything he says his is going to do and that PBO failed at. It’s hard for me to be civil at times.

          November 7, 2015 at 11:23 am

          Bernie’s a radical (as you said, as much as I, too, like a lot of his proposals) and reminds me of the way Ron (not Rand) Paul attracted a huge, young and/or radical crowd of free-thinkers to his rallies. Unfortunately for Bernie (and I believe he knows it – pretty sure he’s in the conversation to force others to ‘go left’), the country at large isn’t ready to feel the bern. Even if, I think, he had any specifics.

          About a third of this country – or whatever the hidden percentage really is – must be brought kicking and screaming out of the 18th c., first.

      Has anyone been to these new theaters where you can order food, I’ve been to one a couple of times. I’m more old school, I like walking in and getting my own food, I love walking to get my popcorn or a hotdog. I been to the Alamo Draft house in Austin and the guy hands me a fucking menu with gourmet food on it and I’m like what the fuck you want from me. Some young punk looks at me like “take your time old man, I live to wait on you.”

      We are going to see it this afternoon in the very big screen. We have never watched a movie on one of those. I am afraid all the action will make me dizzy on such a big screen. We will see. I remember going to see the first Bond movie. Just a bunch of young kids so anxious to see the action.

      Now off to catch up.

    About Unca Ben…

    I had no doubt whatsoever that the GOP Establishment would dispatch him when the time was right. They have decided that he’s got to go…so, he’s going to be GONE! and very soon. I doubt he will be in this race come December 1st.

        Yeah and his one desire to compare his vetting by the press to the scrutiny of PBO when he was running was laughable considering that we had to watch Rev Wright played in a loop by every media outlet there was at the time for two straight weeks.
