    There were two AA men on Stephanie Ruhle – one Dem & one GOP saying it was Obama’s fault because he left the DNC in debt, didn’t turn OFA over to them (why would he plus none of them would stay) yet they agreed that Obama didn’t whine like Bernie he started his own coalition. One thing I don’t like about Randi she hates Hillary even though she voted for her but won’t point out Bernie’s flaws. She did say he would not have beat Trump because of voter suppression too. Hillary won in my opinion.

      THIS!!!!!!! I was listening to her latch on this same crap. They are all forgetting that Bernie is not a Democrat. Did he share his donor list with the DNC? I don’t think he did.

    We need to help educate people about the Census as often as possible. This is one of the goals of Pres Obama’s project in partnership with Eric Holder -> make sure people understand why voting in state elections right now is important.

      The Russian-Sponsored FAKE DEMS – Thom Hartmann and Ed Shaltz (Bernie Sanders too) told people in 2010 to protest PBO for not doing Universal Healthcare and stay home. Donna Brazille is starting early to tap down Dem voters for a few pieces of silver. I hope her fucking book fails.

        They’d put on every GOP congressperson who wanted airtime to say that the Dem POTUS was unfit, dangerous to America and should be impeached.

        And as an aside, we all know they really don’t give a damn about that other than to use it to bring down Dems. It’s happening for real right now and they won’t do or say a thing.

      It’s ashame that the other Republicans like Paul Ryan and McConnell will not stand up and speak out against Trump. What would they be saying if it was a Dem President saying what Trump is saying?

      GE/GM NCLB.

      There is so much confusion and obstruction, and “facts” that do. not. make. sense about the Las Vegas shooting. It’s very possible that the gunman liked FUBAR because he was personally making money this year, but I don’t buy the “lone gunman” excuse being offered by law enforcement. For example:

      Las Vegas Metropolitan Police are in charge of the investigation, not the FBI.

      The FBI is assisting, but refuses to answer media inquiries.

      From the article:
      “The Las Vegas tragedy is classified as a mass shooting and not a terrorist attack. The investigation is being led by the Metropolitan Police Department with assistance from federal and state agencies.”

      And as a frame of reference, here’s a comparison of what the FBI must analyze versus the Sandy Hook crime scene (details of which are only now being released, 5 years later).

      The timeline of when the shooting started, of when the Mandalay Bay guard was shot, why it took the police an hour to go inside the gunman’s room after the shooting had stopped, the fact that the hard drive was missing from the gunman’s computer in the hotel room, the fact that LVMPD admitted later that they had fired an “accidental” shot inside the gunman’s hotel room… so MANY unanswered questions.

      I have read a lot of speculation on Twitter on this, and one wonders about…
      1. A connection between Fernando and Imelda Marcos’ missing billions (way too long a story to get into here).

      2. The fact that Las Vegas is a mob-controlled city, and MGM Resorts in the #1 employer in the town (basically if they were brought down, the sheriff and lots of other people, including news media, would be out of jobs)…

      3. The gunman trying to explode fuel tanks at the airport to create a diversion (from what? to assign blame to Iran [because of Iran Deal?] or ISIS? or some other entity?)

      Immediately after the shooting, the most prevalent RW theory was a “Fast and Furious” deal gone wrong — that the FBI and Paddock were conducting a sting sale of guns, ammo, bomb-making materials to terrorists who killed Paddock and then the concert goers (this doesn’t make any sense to me though).

      Bottom line, this case is a complete tangled web and will take a long time (if ever) for all the facts to come out — none of which will be pretty.

      What worries me most is that the Philippines may be central to this case, and the grotesque evil occupying the WH will be there soon.

      Here’s an example of how much clout MGM Resorts has in Las Vegas:

    Social media accounts with ties to Russia pushed a huge Twitter trend in favour of an independent California on US election night 2016, BBC Trending has learned. The campaign was one of at least two popular online independence drives with links to the Kremlin.

    It was a surprising development on a surprising night. In the early hours of 9 November 2016, shortly after it became clear that Donald Trump would be the next president of the United States, the hashtag #Calexit hit Twitter’s list of top trends.


    There are also indications that the election night #Calexit trend – the hashtag was mentioned 100,000 times in the course of a few hours – was artificially driven by automated bots or fake accounts. Several of the most retweeted messages under the hashtag were posted by accounts with just a few hundred followers. And some of those tweets were retweeted thousands of times, an unlikely – though not impossible – occurrence.

    Although this tweet was repeated 10,000 times, nearly 2,000 of those accounts have since disappeared from Twitter, indicating that they were potentially automated bots, fake accounts, or otherwise violated the network’s terms and conditions.

    The Internet Research Agency and other Russia-based hacker networks have been known to use automated accounts to push social media trends.

    Russia has consistently denied any interference in the US election. Trending contacted the Russian Embassy in London and the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs for comment but they did not respond.

    GE TODville.

    There’s NO WAY the grotesque evil in the WH could possibly abide by a like this, so I wonder what the next step would be (obviously Maggie Haberman would be on FUBAR’s side:

    From the article:
    “In the Papadopoulos case, former Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman warned that the president had defamed a potential government witness who is likely to be called in a federal trial.

    ‘This could be grounds for Mueller to obtain a gag order on Trump,’ Akerman said. ‘It would be unprecedented, but he is interfering with the government’s right to a fair trial.’”

    Also, haven’t checked the previous thread, but assume that this nonsense was posted on the previous thread…

              I remember being at a party way way way back in the very early days of “chat rooms” and a woman I was sitting next to was telling me about how she found out the guy she’d been chatting with for months was really a 12 year old girl. I mean, even in the beginning, it was a lot of hideous cosplay junk. I’m sure dating sites do some people a lot of good but I watch too much Dateline mysteries to even think about it.

I met my wife the old fashion way, a friend of mine was dating this woman that had a friend that was looking for a guy to meet and possibly date. We ended up meeting at a metro rail station in downtown Miami, it was like in the movies. She was coming down the escalator and she was a vision. About a week or so later she sends me Tom Hanks’ “Sleepless in Seattle” dvd. And the rest was history.

    Obama’s contempt for most of the emmessem and cable noise was because of their corruption and lack of journalistic chops & ethics.

    turd’s contempt for them is because he knows they are corrupted and they will kiss his ass and cover him.

    • 120 Don

      And they knew that President Obama was smarter than they were, and he knew it also. President Bill Clinton delighted in playing their petty games, but President Obama refused to play those games and this upset them to no end. Nothing upsets a person more than knowing that their games mean absolutely nothing to the person that they want attention from.

      “Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world like a Colossus; and we petty men walk under his huge legs, and peep about to find ourselves dishonorable graves.”

      Every time I read this quote I think about President Obama, he had to try and work with men that had no honor, and their only purpose was to undermine him for their gain. But worst of all they have allowed themselves to become subservient to a man that they despise more than President Obama. In the end they have gotten their cake, but worst of all, they have to eat it.

        I also think of that all the time, Don. Whenever he would go to Capitol Hill that quote had double, triple meaning. Then I would watch him on the world stage, and they all were trying to get next to him, have private conversations with him, be like him…..Shakespeare has a quote for just about everything. Thanks for reminding me of this one.
