    ALL OF THEM.
    And it is how history will remember them. It won't be Paul Ryan's tax cut. It will be their aiding and abetting Donald Trump.

    The Pennsylvania race proves it: Trump is a weight around the GOP’s neck

    In short, the vast majority of Republican officeholders will continue walking the tightrope. Too afraid of offending the GOP base, which is still solidly behind Trump, yet too afraid of generating a backlash among Democrats and independents, they are the proverbial deer caught in the headlights. They dare not dash to one side or another (solidly pro- or anti-Trump), but they are defenseless against the charge that they are enablers of a deeply unpopular president.

    President Donald Trump thinks the United States should launch a “Space Force,” a branch of the military devoted to wars in space

    “Space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air and sea,” Trump said on Tuesday at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. “We may even have a Space Force, develop another one, Space Force. We have the Air Force, we’ll have the Space Force.”

    At first, Trump said he wasn’t serious about the notion.

    “Then I said, ‘What a great idea!’ Maybe we’ll have to do that,’” Trump said. “So think of that: Space Force, because we are spending a lot and we have a lot of private money coming in, tremendous.”

    He also described the U.S. military as “vital to ensuring America continues to lead the way into the stars.”

    Because the ruling elites of space need to be policed and shaken up. The status quo is no longer acceptable and the dark and dangerous times of deep space demand action. Only inaction in space will result in these most perilous actions. Brilliant leadership brilliantly displayed.

    Wasn’t it about a year ago that you were claiming that the brilliancy of Team Trump Treason and his campaign and policies would result in a Team Trumpian Treasonous wave that would solidify repube holds on congress and state legislatures, resulting in Team Trump Treason’s re-election and repubes’ consolidation of power for a generation? Still believing the myth, eh Professor?

    yeah, except that he isn't.

    they're all a bunch of corrupt idiots aboard a RUDDERLESS ship.
    Only someone who is unaware of Pompeo's biography would refer to him as a "corrupt idiot". His appointment also proves that the ship has a rudder. The ship was listing ever so slightly under Tillerson away from the Captain's pointed direction...now the ship can chart a more direct course.
    “We’re finally getting the cabinet that I want.” That you continue to have faith in this “leader” is laughable. You’re embarrassing yourself. Again.

    Team Trump Treason will have the US at war in late 2019/early 2020, to you know, increase his re-election chances.
    The US is already at war and the likelihood of additional war will not increase due to US actions but due to US and allied inaction. China, Russia, North Korea, Iran, Turkey to name a few have nefarious intentions and will continue to push boundaries if they are left unopposed. The best way to slow and/or prevent this is to prepare for the worst. Nobody can run from the tide that is coming toward us.
    Let me know how many Canadian troops are proffered for the coalition of the brilliant. And when they return from space. Oh, the first three countries you listed are nuclear powers, so no, and one of which is in possession of a PTape so double no. Of the other two you listed, one is a NATO ally and the other would require a massive land invasion, unless you’re advocating a nuclear strike? So, again, no. But keep beating that war drum Professor, keep beating that drum.

    The Pennsylvania race proves conservative democrats can win. Lamb did not run against Trump. He was a great candidate who vocally rejected Pelosi and supported most if not all of the GOP's positions. There is nothing wrong with that and in fact it is smart. The other thing the race proves is that Lamb's district is not filled with a bunch of misogynist, low-information racists who voted for Trump by 20 points but then all of a sudden came to their senses. The voters of this district were offered a young dynamic candidate who spoke to them with respect and for the most part agreed with them on centre-right issues.

    Here’s a pic of what he meant by see-through, you wackos.  It’s wider than I thought at 150 feet of “monitoring zone.” I assume that’s where the hounds will roam in the post apocalypse.



    Remember when you thought Mexico was paying for this stupid thing?
    I actually never believed that he’d get Mexico to pay for it.  I thought it was funny as hell that he said that but never thought it would be the way it went down.

    Pompeo is a fantastic upgrade. I'm agnostic about Haspel but I'm sure the rank and file approve bigly. Lamb shows that a good candidate with a conservative-bent can win in a very Red district. Like Jones and Northam before him the dems need to recognize that this is the path to victory. If they can get their progressive wing to back off then flipping the house should be easy.
    Wasn’t it about a year ago that you were claiming that the brilliancy of Team Trump Treason and his campaign and policies would result in a Team Trumpian Treasonous wave that would solidify repube holds on congress and state legislatures, resulting in Team Trump Treason’s re-election and repubes’ consolidation of power for a generation? Still believing the myth, eh Professor?
    No. I never claimed that at all but I understand how your emotion prevents you from comprehending reasoned nuanced arguments which led you to think that. I said that Trump figured out how to speak to the working class voter in a way that previous Republican candidates failed. I also said that if Democrats failed to learn from this then they will have a hard time of winning in the future. Doug Jones demonstrates learning. Lamb demonstrates learning. The progressive wing boxing-in red state democrats like Tester into a corner shows a lack of learning. The odds are that the Republicans will lose the house next year regardless of Trump's performance because as I have said before it is generally cyclical...the President loses the house in his first term almost all the time and there is currently no evidence that Trump's support crosses over to GOP establishment candidates that he ran against. The senate on the other hand will likely stay red and in fact will have a larger GOP majority when all is said and done as the progressive wing is making it extremely hard for red state senators to hold their seats...the Jones election is likely an off-year anomaly where everything had to go right including a terrible opponent in order to squeak over the finish line. There is no myth of Trump other then a disruptive outsider who will govern chaotically and will be judged by results. He didn't run as a saint but as a "doer" and in the end he will take that record to the people for judgement. He will have to thread the same very thin needle to win and will have to remain an outsider to do so. Who his opponent is will matter greatly and the democrats should strongly consider candidates in the "Lamb" mold. There is a reason why Democratic operatives are on tv asking Hillary Clinton to stop talking...her AMT rhetoric is bad for the party.

    Team Trump Treason will have the US at war in late 2019/early 2020, to you know, increase his re-election chances.
    The US is already at war and the likelihood of additional war will not increase due to US actions but due to US and allied inaction. China, Russia, North Korea, Iran, Turkey to name a few have nefarious intentions and will continue to push boundaries if they are left unopposed. The best way to slow and/or prevent this is to prepare for the worst. Nobody can run from the tide that is coming toward us.
    Let me know how many Canadian troops are proffered for the coalition of the brilliant. And when they return from space. Oh, the first three countries you listed are nuclear powers, so no, and one of which is in possession of a PTape so double no. Of the other two you listed, one is a NATO ally and the other would require a massive land invasion, unless you’re advocating a nuclear strike? So, again, no. But keep beating that war drum Professor, keep beating that drum.
    You need to make-up your mind as to whether Trump is a stooge of these dictators or whether he is being too tough on them. Honestly you seem to take a different tack every day. Also...the fact that you still believe there is a PTape is truly amazing.

    The Pennsylvania race proves it: Trump is a weight around the GOP’s neck

    In short, the vast majority of Republican officeholders will continue walking the tightrope. Too afraid of offending the GOP base, which is still solidly behind Trump, yet too afraid of generating a backlash among Democrats and independents, they are the proverbial deer caught in the headlights. They dare not dash to one side or another (solidly pro- or anti-Trump), but they are defenseless against the charge that they are enablers of a deeply unpopular president.

    The Pennsylvania race proves conservative democrats can win. Lamb did not run against Trump. He was a great candidate who vocally rejected Pelosi and supported most if not all of the GOP's positions. There is nothing wrong with that and in fact it is smart. The other thing the race proves is that Lamb's district is not filled with a bunch of misogynist, low-information racists who voted for Trump by 20 points but then all of a sudden came to their senses. The voters of this district were offered a young dynamic candidate who spoke to them with respect and for the most part agreed with them on centre-right issues.
    it doesn't matter. trump ran against him. and failed. again. 
    Yeah. Maybe. Other's could argue that Saccone was about to get slaughtered until Trump showed up. I'm not really sure but if you were a Republican knowing this district is about to disappear in November then why even bother showing up if it makes zero difference to the governing majority? There were so many different things at play and in the end people shouldn't take away from the fact that Lamb himself was/is an excellent candidate.

    Stormy has a tape. And pictures. Both of which will lend credence to the Steele Dossier. Hence Team Trump Treason’s fear of her. So, you’re advocating war with three nuclear powers, a NATO ally and a country that would make Iraq look like a cake walk? I guess you can when your country doesn’t have any skin in the game. And how has my position changed?

    President Donald Trump thinks the United States should launch a “Space Force,” a branch of the military devoted to wars in space

    “Space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air and sea,” Trump said on Tuesday at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. “We may even have a Space Force, develop another one, Space Force. We have the Air Force, we’ll have the Space Force.”

    At first, Trump said he wasn’t serious about the notion.

    “Then I said, ‘What a great idea!’ Maybe we’ll have to do that,’” Trump said. “So think of that: Space Force, because we are spending a lot and we have a lot of private money coming in, tremendous.”

    He also described the U.S. military as “vital to ensuring America continues to lead the way into the stars.”

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-space-force_us_5aa87feae4b0f7a689cd5c29

    Kay, honestly, ignoring the fact that he's a rambling idiot with this, I don't think this kind of (crazy) talk is bad. Yes, of course the idea of militarizing in space seems insane, but remember, this guy isn't going to be in office anywhere near long enough for that to get off the ground. Given that, the fact that he appears to be in support of space travel technology/funding is probably a good thing in the long term. The alternative, and where I often fear Republican presidents will go, is for them to slash or totally cut off funding for technology development in that area. I'm personally one who supports all work that goes towards space exploration/technology in general, not to mention asteroid intervention projects, which actually are one priority for NASA - that work has to continue in a consistent way as humankind evolves IMO .... So dropping the stupid space wars fantasy that Trump is babbling about, if he's going to help to fund NASA or even military scientific research in that area, that could be a good thing for after he's gone, at least compared to slowing or stopping that kind of advancement. And it is actually possible that he's going in the dumb "space wars" route when he talks because that is probably the only track he can take with it so his moronic base will support paying for space technology development.

    Brian, you bring up a very frightening prospect.
    Image if any of these professions; brain surgeon, cardiologist, child's teacher, plumber, firefighters, emts or the military, were as unqualified as Trump.

    I wonder how much she would owe if she broke contract? Let's say it's 1 million, I bet she could find a lot of wealthy people willing to pay that for her. A go fund me would probably have no trouble coming up with the cash.

    But I hope that this all comes back to Trump violating election laws. I'm not that interested in his private life and more interested in his shady cover-ups.

    Yeah. Maybe. Other's could argue that Saccone was about to get slaughtered until Trump showed up. I'm not really sure but if you were a Republican knowing this district is about to disappear in November then why even bother showing up if it makes zero difference to the governing majority? There were so many different things at play and in the end people shouldn't take away from the fact that Lamb himself was/is an excellent candidate.
    I know people use polling numbers to their advantage and decry them when they don't, but this is considered a massive upset, even if he squeaks out a win, is it not? trump won that same district by 20 points. excellent opposing candidate or not, that doesn't happen without reason.
