  1. Actually, I suspect that her comment will get her more votes if anything. This is Mississippi, after all.
  2. But it wasn't Jesus Christ he nominated. Rather it was a crank who has made unsupported assertions about the Mueller investigation and has suggested ways to shut it down.
  3. It's funny how in a state with a Republican governor and a Republican legislture, the state officials in charge of the counting say that there is absolutely no evidence of fraud. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/broward/article221469215.html
  4. Wildfire responses to abrupt climate change in North America "Although there are changes in biomass burning during the Younger Dryas, there is no systematic trend. There is a further increase in biomass burning after the Younger Dryas. Intervals of rapid climate change at 13.9, 13.2, and 11.7 ka are marked by large increases in fire activity. The timing of changes in fire is not coincident with changes in human population density or the timing of the extinction of the megafauna." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2650296/
  5. Even if the forests were 100% under California's control it would be irrelevant. The fires aren't starting in the forests.
  6. Three out of 4 House districts in Arizona have now elected Democrats.
  7. What don't you understand about the biggest gain for democrats in 44 years? ANd this in the face of widespread Republican gerrymandering.
  8. Obama was in some ways politically incompetent. Didn't want to channel rage against the bankers and such. So he had to contend with being blamed for the bad economy. IBut the economy is putting up lots of impressive numbers now, Despite which, and despite gerrymandering, the Democrats are going to score their biggest gains in 44 years. Somebody in this thread characterized that as a "trickle."
  9. Sure, they would have confessed to violating in international treaty and endangering civilian aircraft. How did you come up with this one?
  10. Trump disagrees with you: Trump threatens to withhold California fire aid, citing state's 'gross mismanagement' of forests Just hours after President Trump issued an emergency declaration to provide funds to help firefighters in California as they battle at least three major wildfires across the state, the president threatened to withhold the federal payments -- citing the state's "gross mismanagement" of its forests. Tweeting from Paris early Saturday, Trump wrote that “there is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly fires in California.” He added that “billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. https://www.foxnews.com/us/trump-approves-emergency-declaration-for-california-as-wildfires-rage-across-state Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump FollowFollow @realDonaldTrump More There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!
  11. If you are asking me a question then you must be.
  12. You might want to think about what you wrote. It seems you are badly confused.
  13. If anybody wants to gain insight into the paranoic and self-serving conspiracy theory concerning FISA, here'a a good place to start: Spygate: How Right-Wing Media Creates a Conspiracy Theory Out of Thin Air "The plot goes like this: During the summer of 2016, on the clandestine orders of then-president Barack Obama, the FBI and CIA hatched an ambitious plan to topple the Trump campaign from the inside. In a scandal of unprecedented scope, Democratic politicians commandeered American counterintelligence resources to spy on their primary political opponent and boost Hillary Clinton's chances of winning the election. The Russia investigation that has dominated headlines for nearly two years is, in fact, a desperate smokescreen conjured up by terrified Deep State actors to conceal evidence of their own wrongdoing, and to frame the president for heinous crimes he didn't commit. https://www.gq.com/story/spygate-conspiracy-theory-explained
  14. "Coupled with upcoming scandals over the real abuse of FISA power by the Democrats, possible indictments against a whole slew of folks (Comey and McCabe come to mind, one of them lied to Congress) and the looming spectre of Hillary again, coupled with Wild Cards like RBGs health,"
  15. WINNING!!! In North Korea, Missile Bases Suggest a Great Deception North Korea is moving ahead with its ballistic missile program at 16 hidden bases that have been identified in new commercial satellite images, a network long known to American intelligence agencies but left undiscussed as President Trump claims to have neutralized the North’s nuclear threat. The satellite images suggest that the North has been engaged in a great deception: It has offered to dismantle a major launching site — a step it began, then halted — while continuing to make improvements at more than a dozen others that would bolster launches of conventional and nuclear warheads. The existence of the ballistic missile bases, which North Korea has never acknowledged, contradicts Mr. Trump’s assertion that his landmark diplomacy is leading to the elimination of a nuclear and missile program that the North had warned could devastate the United States. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/12/us/politics/north-korea-missile-bases.html?action=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage Undeclared North Korea: The Sakkanmol Missile Operating Base November 12, 2018, by Joseph Bermudez, Victor Cha and Lisa Collins SHARE THIS PAGE PRINT Key Findings Sakkanmol (삭간몰) is an undeclared operational missile base for short-range ballistic missiles (SRBMs). It is one of 13 out of an estimated 20 undeclared North Korean missile operating bases identified by Beyond Parallel research. Sakkanmol currently houses a unit equipped with SRBMs but could easily accommodate more capable medium-range ballistic missiles (MRBMs). https://beyondparallel.csis.org/undeclared-north-korea-sakkanmol-missile-operating-base/
