More of the same — not any more sane; I trust women in particular will vote accordingly.

The events of the past couple of weeks just demonstrate what so many have unbelievably become comfortable with. With all of the supposed outrage over efforts to prevent the complete polarization of the Supreme Court, it seems that many have forgotten that the reason that judges with demonstrably partisan records are only now being nominated is that Mitch McConnell changed the threshold for the filibuster.

Historically, nominees enjoyed bipartisan support because the higher threshold prevented consideration of activist judges. Add to that more hypocrisy from Senators that trumpeted outrage about the attack on a man's character when hours before, many were grappling with the credibility of the accuser. Going on and on about a "fair process" and not a week later, guess who is outright insulting a woman who came forward and chanting "lock her up" about yet another woman who did nothing wrong?

What was the purpose of hiding behind the female questioner if you end up doubling down on the attack the female victim strategy? So, hooray for boot-licking Lindsey Graham for an inspiring display.

P.S. your friend, John McCain, wouldn't approve.

And yet, all you have to offer women is Beto. Well at least he dresses like a woman.

Van Jones

Speaking as a woman, Beto is not only the best candidate, he's also HOT. He will stand up for us. Unlike the sniveling little coward he's running against. Cruz wouldn't even stand up for his own family and you think he cares about you? Never has stoop up for Texas and never will.

Keith Gray

By weakening our boarders???? By giving illegal aliens tax funded attorneys... more money out of women's hard earned tax dollars. Yeah, voting for someone because "he's hot" is such a reason to vote for someone. Wow you are so enlightened.

Carlos Ponce

" judges with demonstrably partisan records" - like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan. Or do you mean only those appointed by a Republican president? That would be partisan.
"Mitch McConnell changed the threshold for the filibuster." Actually it was Harry Reid in November 2013. The US Senate makes its own rules.
Now you may argue that Reid's nuclear option was not meant for SCOTUS nominees but why not? What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.
Read Charles Krauthammer's opinion in the Washington Post:
"Thank God for Harry Reid"
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/thank-god-for-harry-reid/2017/02/02/b2b58906-e97c-11e6-bf6f-301b6b443624_story.html?utm_term=.7027fb41c97a
US Senate makes their own rules. McConnell simply extended Reid's "nuclear option" to SCOTUS nominees. But it was Harry Reid who changed the threshold for the filibuster.
"McConnell can at any moment finish Reid’s work by extending filibuster abolition to the Supreme Court."
What constitutes a majority in layman's terms? 50% plus 1.
Simple majority wins.

Alan Waters

There you go again, Carlos. Please stop confusing the issues with facts. Beto misbehaved and got arrested many years ago, when he was a kid (high school to college), and that should not be considered due to how long ago that was... Sound familiar? People, please wake up. Look at Portland. It is coming if we don't vote using our common sense. Not too many years ago, there was very little difference between Republicans and Democrats. JFK would be a Republican today. But the Democrats have gone way too far left. Remember, He who doesn't study history, is doomed to repeat it. Study Europe, that is what the left wants for our country.....

Emile Pope

The rules were changed by Harry Reid because the Republicans made an agreement to block President Obama's court nominees and with extremely few exceptions did just that. That meant that for court seats to be filled Reid had to change the rules. McConnell stole a supreme court seat and then changed the rules to select a right wing partisan for the court. Don't confuse what Reid did for the garbage McConnell perpetrated.

George Croix

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZlzhULrJC0

Yet another Democrat who was 'for it, before he was against it'.....

Emile Pope

Reid was against treason...

George Croix

He obviously wasn't against stupidity...

Carlos Ponce

"McConnell stole a supreme court seat" No he just invoked the BIDEN RULE that a president should not appoint a Supreme Court Justice within a presidential election year. And proof of this was provided in a previous forum. Don't like the rule? Then we'll call it the EMILE POPE RULE that President Trump can appoint when he makes his 3rd, 4th and 5th SCOTUS appointment at any time. How's that?

Emile Pope

The Biden rule didn't exist. You are just making this up. It was a suggestion that was never acted upon. Simply repeating falsehoods doesn't make them true...

Carlos Ponce

"The Biden rule didn't exist." It has existed since Biden proclaimed it during the George H.W. Bush administration. I provided PROOF last time you posted that. You are entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts.
https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2016/mar/17/context-biden-rule-supreme-court-nominations/

Emile Pope

The "Biden rule" does not exist and never did. It was just a suggestion that was never acted upon.

Emile Pope

"Biden's floor speech was on June 25, 1992, more than three months later in the election cycle than it is now.

There was no Supreme Court vacancy to fill.

There was no nominee to consider.

The Senate never took a vote to adopt a rule to delay consideration of a nominee until after the election." Politifact
That was from your own article. It proves that there was no "Biden rule" What part of "The Senate never took a vote to adopt a rule to delay consideration of a nominee until after the election" do you fail to understand? Your own sources prove you wrong.

Carlos Ponce

The Biden rule exists. Your denial does not circumvent its existence.

Emile Pope

George Bush was arrested and was older than Beto at the time...

Carlos Ponce

But George Bush did not try to leave the scene. In fact, unlike NO'Rourke, Bush did not even have an accident with a truck. According to tests, Bush had a much lower alcohol level than Robert, just at legal definition. And yes he was older than NO'Rourke but both were well within "adult" definitions.

Carlos Ponce

Nothing of consequence. Ted Cruz will win in November because of the issues. That's all that matters.[beam] NO'Rourke is running against Ted Cruz, NOT George W. Bush. Get over it.

Kay Lowell

Well said. Totally agree with you.

Jarvis Buckley

The state of our country politically now is in shambles. After these mid term elections we can get back to normalcy. The MSM, George Soros money, Hollywood, California , NY
Liberals have hit this country like a
Hurricane. We will be better soon.
Then Beto can figure out what to do with all that George Soros money he was sent. Vote Cruz for a better. America .

Emile Pope

Soros? The new Emmanuel Goldstein for Republicans? Grow up!

Carlos Ponce

George Soros is funding Democrat opposition to the Trump administration. The lady who confronted Senator Flake in the elevator receives nearly $178,000 in pay ($156,333 in regular pay and a bonus of $21,378) that comes from Soros. Ana Maria Archila heads the CPD Center for Popular Democracy. George Soros funds this organization through his Open Society Policy Center.

Christine Mangle

I gather you are okay with the Mercer and Sheldon money though, correct?

George Croix

If Robert Mercer and Sheldon Adelson ever pay people to go harass and assault Democrats, to run them out of restaurants, to encourage threats against their families, and to openly speak of overturning...removing... the duly elected Admin. of this country, then turning the United States into a Socialist country, then an accurate conclusion can be drawn to compare them with George Soros.
Until then, the evidence does not support the comparison....

Emile Pope

Proof?

Emile Pope

And you have proof of payment to those people? Or do you just assume that anyone opposed to trump is being paid by Soros?

Carlos Ponce

"Column: PROOF that liberal protesters are paid "
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/huppke/ct-paid-protesters-huppke-20170227-story.html
"Trump Lashes Out at Capitol Hill Protesters"
Some of the women protesting are members of or paid staffers for activist groups. Ana Maria Archila, one of the two women who confronted Flake, is co-executive director of the nonprofit Center for Popular Democracy Action. She said Friday that if Trump “wants to say I have a job where I advocate for justice, he is right.”
CPD is funded through George Soros' Open Society.

Emile Pope

Garbage. Are members of organizations not allowed to actively protest? You are totally wrong....

Carlos Ponce

Typical Emile. Why ask for PROOF when you refuse to accept it? What's wrong with the Chicago Tribune? I took the time to provide PROOF and what do you reply? "GARBAGE."

Jim Forsythe

The story in the Chicago Tribune is equal to one's written in the Onion.
If you know about "Burning Man" you would know he is pulling your leg.
This is the proof, facts from Wayne Lapierre ?
"But I'm here to tell you otherwise: Paid liberal protesters totally exist; it's an excellent career choice with surprisingly good benefits; and each protester earns $1,500 a week.
I know that last fact thanks to Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association. During last week's Conservative Political Action Conference (it's like Burning Man for people who believe Burning Men should only be allowed to marry Burning Women), LaPierre railed against "full-time" liberal protesters, saying they earn "$1500 a week.""
"And I would never lie to me."
"That website clearly says of paid liberal protesting: "It's a thing. And it pays BIG BUCKS!" It even quotes me saying: "A great career choice." And I would never lie to me."
Again with the satirical comments. He said, don't tell my employer, the Chicago Tribune knowing his boss will read this.
"More important than the online evidence is my personal testimony as a man who has built a successful paid protesting career. (Please don't tell my employer, the Chicago Tribune, about this activity as it is forbidden by our ethics policy and would undoubtedly lead to my immediate dismissal."

He made up a town for Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, R, unless you know where-Scaredytown is?

His last shot telling you what kind of story it is.
(Worth noting, I recently had "Havoc Wreaker" tattooed on my forehead.)

Carlos Ponce

The story is still true despite your doubts . Information can be found in other websites.
FACT Ana Maria Archila is co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy.
https://populardemocracy.org/staff
FACT Center for Popular Democracy is funded through Open Society.
https://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/press-releases/foundations-announce-2013-soros-justice-fellows
In their article, "No, George Soros isn’t paying Kavanaugh protesters" the Washington Post states "Andrew Friedman, the co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy, said the Open Society Foundations contribute more than $1 million a year. That total is split up between the center itself, which is a nonprofit, and the Center for Popular Democracy Action, a 501(c)(4) political advocacy group."
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/10/05/no-george-soros-isnt-paying-kavanaugh-protesters/?utm_term=.e6b0dd0f4daa
Then they put on their Leftist hats and try to discredit the claim how the money is used. "Soros has no involvement in the group’s organizing efforts or strategy sessions for opposing Kavanaugh, she [Jennifer Flynn Walker] added.
Riiiiight......
Soros wouldn't give them the money unless they shared the same political philosophy.

Jim Forsythe

Miriam & Sheldon Adelson gave 52.7 Million compared to Soros who gave 17.5 Million in the 2016 elections . .
You think that people like Soros and Miriam & Sheldon Adelson are paying people to do this?
No proof has ever shown this has happen. Some guy at a NRA meeting says that he knows that people are being paid $1500 a week, but has no proof.
I guess you will get "Havoc Wreaker" tattooed on your forehead in Scaredytown TX , on your way to Burning Man since you think the Chicago Tribune was not taking a poke at the Republicans.

Dark money is what should concern people. The Koch brothers' network is spending one fourth of the dark money.
In the politics of the United States, dark money is funds given to nonprofit organizations—and include 501 501 and 501 groups—that can receive unlimited donations . They can spend funds to influence elections, but are not required to disclose their donors. Dark money first entered politics with Buckley v. Valeo when the United States Supreme Court laid out Eight Magic Words that define the difference between electioneering and issue advocacy.
Dark money has increased from $5.2 million in 2006 to well over $300 million in the 2012 presidential cycle and more than $174 million in the 2014 midterms."[ The New York Times editorial board has opined that the 2014 midterm elections were influenced by "the greatest wave of secret, special-interest money ever raised in a congressional election.
The largest and most complex network of dark money groups are funded by conservative billionaire business magnates Charles and David Koch; the Koch brothers' network accounted for about a quarter of dark money spending in 2012.
Approaching the 2018 midterm elections, in mid-September, just 15 groups accounted for three-quarters of the anonymous cash

Protests is the American way," . "That's one of the most American thing you can do, use your voice."
Some protesters do not do it the right, and go to jail. Protesting is protected, and is a Americans right to do so.

Republican House candidate Omar Navarro, who is running against Rep. Maxine Waters in California’s 43rd Congressional District. Back in December, Navarro tweeted: According to this document, Maxine Waters wants more terrorists, like the one who bombed NYC, in California’s 43rd District.
As Congressman of CA’s 43rd District, I will oppose such policies. #VoteNavarro2018http://Www.omarnavarro.com/donate
3:13 PM - Dec 11, 2017 : The FBI and Capitol Police want to talk with Rep. Maxine Waters’ 2018 Republican opponent about a fake letter he posted to Twitter that falsely indicated the congresswoman wants to resettle tens of thousands of refugees in her Los Angeles district.

The teen who recorded the secret video of NY-21 Democratic congressional candidate Tedra Cobb was paid nearly $1,000 by the National Republican Congressional Committee to track candidates.

"Brooks Brothers riot’
In 2000, during the Bush-Gore recount, hundreds of paid GOP operatives caused a “near riot” outside a counting room in Miami-Dade County, forcing the canvassing board to shut down the count.
The capstone of Roger Stone’s career, at least in terms of results, was the “Brooks Brothers riot” of the 2000 election recount. This was when a Stone-led squad of pro-Bush protestors stormed the Miami-Dade County election board, stopping the recount and advancing then-Governor George W. Bush one step closer to the White House.

A former Republican National Committee official was sentenced Wednesday to 10 months in prison for his role in the jamming of New Hampshire Democrats' telephones on Election Day 2002.
James Tobin, the third person sent to prison in the case, was found guilty in December of harassment by telephone. Prosecutors had asked for two years behind bar

Vote for Street People
In 2010, hoping to split the liberal vote, a Republican political operative recruited homeless people to run for various offices in Arizona on the Green Party ticket.
Why Perot quit? : Ross Perot said he quit his 1992 presidential campaign because, he alleged, the Bush campaign had threatened to smear his daughter with a doctored photo of her.

Oct 13, 2018 : Two young Arizona Republicans tried to make a donation to a congressman while posing as members of a university communist party, in an apparent attempt to tie the Democrat to the far left.
On Friday afternoon in Flagstaff, two men who called themselves Jose Rosales and Ahmahd Sadia walked into the campaign office of first-term Democrat Tom O’Halleran, with $39.68 and an urgent desire for the “Northern Arizona University Communist party” to be given a receipt for the donation.
The pair walked in to sign up to volunteer but they brought along a jar full of money that they said they wished to donate. After being directed to a finance staffer, they were told to fill out paperwork. In doing so, they identified themselves as members of the Northern Arizona University Communist party. They made clear they were not an official group but were holding meetings. But they also insisted on a receipt.
Lindsay Coleman, finance director for the campaign, drove to the local Republican field office in order to return the money. Almost immediately, the man who identified himself as Rosales appeared . He accepted the money from Coleman.

It's what you use the money for, Jim.
Have Mercer and Adelson donated to groups who promote violent exchange, assault, intimidation, harassment, and mob rule?
No.
Now, say the same about Soros......you can't because you are not a liar..........

Jim Forsythe

Mercer
More than any protest as a problem, we are looking at Artificial Intelligence (AI) influencing elections.
He own's companies that specialize it this, and he is not the only one.
Goon squads now carry keyboards.

Mercer is the major shareholder in Breitbart, which Bannon took over, after the untimely death of Andrew Breitbart, the founder. Breitbart is currently being investigated by the FBI for possibly colluding with Russia to manipulate Trump's campaign. Breitbart is an extreme alt-right publication, with distinctive racist views.

Anyone that promote violent exchange, assault, intimidation, harassment, and mob rule will be taken care of.
This is about the same level that some movies star, singers and others put up with. Anyone in theses professions including politics know this could happen to them. Several singers have been killed . Trump has already had a attempt on his life outside the USA. They were able to stop it, before it happened. This is one of the reason several President have said that being President is very lonely, because of all the protection.

Are you going to Houston Monday to see Trump? My Sister saw him in Kansas, and enjoyed it.

"More than any protest as a problem, we are looking at Artificial Intelligence (AI) influencing elections."

Jim, old friend, that's a great answer as an example of both conflation and obfuscation, but boiling it all down NOT ONE thing in it supports any...any...time that Mercer or Adelson has used their money to fund anarchy like Soros does...routinely......
Getting bad press from somebody hardly equals assault, harassment, death threats, mobs of crowd cowards screaming and pounding on stuff and running people and their families out of public places, and...so on....

I don't go to Houston unless I have to....anytime....except when going to the lease or to my daughter's house....
And to see Pres. Trump....? No thanks. For the umpteenth time, I don't like Pres. Trump the person, but sure as heck like the majority of his agenda and policies and successes. HE's not the 'direct threat to our democracy' ,thanks Hillary...the headcase 'resistance' is....but, I digress.....
I don't support leaders based on the like-to-have-them-for-a-buddy factor, and don't give a flip about personality except only very rarely as a side issue...RESULTS...let's see 'em.
This guy has gotten RESULTS...POSITIVE results for the WHOLE country, not just the side that elected him. Minorities especially should be rushing to vote for him, but it looks like quite a few of them didn't really want all time low unemployment and better job opportunities, they just wanted Democrat 50 years of empty promises....
Anyway, I ain't burning gasoline to go listen to the Pres. brag and blow hard, anymore than I would have the even worse blowhard braggart ahead of him.
My vote will have to do....

At least this guy can go to the can without checking with his focus group first...

Think about it Jim. Advertisements (audio, video, in print) are all based on algorithms aimed directly at certain demographics. When was the last time you bought a car or even detergent based on an ad? Even when the Noxema girl told me to "Take it off, take it ALL off" I didn't buy. Did you?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkpGM_MvZ2Y

Jim Forsythe

When I said "Influence by tailoring ads based on AI algorithms ." I was not talking about selling you a car.
I was talking about political ads that look at your past reading habits online and what party your agree with. Each person will get a ad that is made just for them. Even your computer uses this to determine what to show you when you go to the start up page of your browser. Pull up a article about how to use something and you will get a popup trying to sell you the product that you were looking at. The same goes for political ads, AI will show you a ad based on your habits.

As far as ads working to sell a products. They work very well or they would not spend big bucks on them. They use placement ads in TV shows and movies. Popup ads on the internet that are driven by AI. Next time you go to the Doctor ask them does anyone ask about a drug they saw on TV. Some ads such as Subliminal Messaging was Banned.
Why do people buy one product over another that is the same, because of advertising.
As I do not use shaving cream, I do not care about Noxema .

"I was not talking about selling you a car." Same concept. Just ask any advertising agency.

I'm happy I don't personally know any women who'd fall for the contents of this author's....article.....

In short, they are normal, not deranged.
I'm very blessed to know women who can think for themselves, and are smart enough to do so.......They, and many like them, far outnumber the ones who can't, but they just don't get much if any MSM air time.....

And all they have to give up is the right to be in control of their bodies and the Constitution...

George Croix

Two things, Pope, which, of course, you'll deny, because that's easier than proving you're right, because you can't...
1)There is nothing, not a word, in the Constitution about abortion...that's a SCOTUS bench legislated 'right'....it's still law, but by judicial decree.

2) Unless the body in the trashcan at the end of the day is their own, then it's not their body that's being controlled....
That 'grain of rice', as one called it, is human life, no matter how much anyone allows themselves to be told otherwise....or parrots the opposite....
Don't think so?
Then carry it for 3 months, a time sufficient so not even the most devout self-delusional person can avoid the fact, get a sonogram, and see if what's in there is a VERY human baby, or just a bowl of Uncle Bens..............
If it's a bowl of rice, send me the pix and the bill for the sonogram, and I'll pay for both the pix and a waiter to later serve the rice.........

Yeah...yeah....Republican talking points.....

McConnell should drop the vote margin to 40, or 20, or even a single vote for seating the nominees, and seat every one possible while he can. He's foolish to believe that his opposition would not do the exact same thing after participating in the despicable hit job on Kavanaugh, and now calling for assault, physical confrontation, with anyone of a different viewpoint.
The left can't win on actual issues, so now uses anarchy to push their agenda.
They may get as big a surprise as they did Nov. 8, 2016, when the pushed get tired of it, and return the favor......
Hope it doesn't come to that, but trying to reason with 'the resistance' is a fools errand...

As a woman, I WILL vote accordingly! Ted Cruz is the best choice for women. When you refer to the debacle that was the character assassination of Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh, all I saw was political theater, underhanded dirty moves by a leftist political activist, aided and abetted by Senator Feinstein. What a complete farce it was. Ms Ford was not a bit believable to me and thank goodness justice prevailed in this case. I am sick to death of dirty democrat politics! The Democrat party of my childhood is dead and buried under a heap of trash sadly. Yes, I will vote accordingly and with no exception, my circle of female family and friends will be joining me in voting a straight Republican ticket.

Keith Gray

Thank you Lisa for standing up for the preborn...

George Croix

Observation and paying attention to the women I'm most in contact with tells me that the "Party of Women' is anything but, that the claim is nothing but empty promises and smokescreens, except for their infanticide for convenience on demand stance, and that's not an issue with the ones I'm close to.
It's not the Democrats who have given women a 65 year lowest unemployment record, but it was them who sent the American middle class family into 2nd place in the world, behind Canada....
JOBS, for both the women and the men, is a BIG consideration if I'm hearing right, and good jobs are preferred over part time/minimum wage ones as 'normal'.
SECURITY for the family looks to me to be pretty important with them, and they sure don't get that with deranged mobs of headcases following their 'leadership's orders to get in faces and harass anyone with a different viewpoint, and they also don't get it by weakness on the international stage, with either our enemies or so-called friends.
OPPORTUNITY seems pretty important, and that comes from policies and practices that benefit AMERICAN citizens ahead of foreigners.
JUSTICE seems pretty important, and that comes from a time honored system where the accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty, not vice versa....one just yesterday reinforced to me how important it was to her that her sons never get into an attempted railroading like Kavanaugh got.
FAMILY and FAITH seem pretty darn important to my little group, two things the left has 'evolved' away from in large measure, and no longer views as building blocks for civil society.
Now, I DO wear hearing aids, so may not have heard them quite correctly, so the Left can feel free to dispute any of those comments/assertions.
While doing that, you can also explain how the 'Party of Women', the one where women 'must be believed no matter what', managed to support, and still stands by, THE poster-woman for the exact opposite, their candidate of choice for President the last time, who LOUDLY decried the 'bimbo eruptions' when her serial sexual predator husband was using the Resolute Desk for other than it's intended purpose. and had 'contact' with others who claimed even worse was done to them.
Or, explain the Big Smile in that photo with Harvey Weinstein, when, we now know, he was already long KNOWN to be a sexual predator.

The Party of Women?

Here's a little something from one of the faces of the 'hot' guy:

"Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, whose well-funded longshot bid to unseat GOP Sen. Ted Cruz has faltered in the polls in recent weeks, has emerged as one of the clearest examples of the Democrats' strategy.
“Impeachment, much like an indictment, shows that there is enough there for the case to proceed,” O’Rourke has said, “and at this point there is certainly enough there for the case to proceed.” However, the 46-year-old has clarified that although he would vote for impeaching Trump, he's also not in favor of actually initiating impeachment proceedings at the moment."

Translated, that means 'ol Beto is for impeaching Pres. Trump, but doesn't want to talk about it now, because he knows it would cost him votes from the folks who know impeachment could not pass both sides of Congress, or, for that matter, is even warranted....except in the minds of the 'resistance'....
A shadow candidate....talking one way, then poised to act another..........
Very 'progressive'.....

Emile Pope

Good for you. Senator Cruz will still be re-elected in November without Emile's support.
