    One thing with me is that I choose my answer more than in the past. I don’t just check the yes or no boxes anymore.

    I agree. There’s a reason McConnell told Trump no one ever lost spending more.

    But go far enough in that direction you might create a threat from the right, though.

    Yup, it's a calculated risk. Trump ran very close to the middle on policy but few experts noticed it.

    The lesson we should learn from Trump is that this is how things work.

    He’s doing things in the open that others knew to hide. Obama had deported more people at this point and was separating families.

    Certain media will abdicate their responsibilities. And by swinging too far the other direction, they give Trump the opportunity to sow distrust. Which also allows him to openly exploit the fact that most people won’t read up on things and toe the party line. Yet it was Obama that actually went after reporters, legally.

    In a very weird way he’s actually being very transparent, even though he’s not very transparent overall.

    But we are now seeing all the ugly from several directions.

    Billionaire Ron Lauder pledges $25M to take down anti-Semitic candidates

    'I'm going after the right as well as the left,' Lauder said

    Evie Fordham
    Published 2 days ago




    Billionaire Ron Lauder is pledging $25 million to take down anti-Semitic candidates of both parties, he told The New York Times in an interview published Monday.

    "Although I am a lifelong Republican, anti-Semitism knows no political party. I'm going after the right as well as the left," said Lauder, who is the son of the late cosmetics moguls Estee and Joseph Lauder.


    Lauder is launching an organization called the Anti-Semitism Accountability Project (ASAP), which will be focused on "action," including researching candidates and airing television ads, he said.

    "Because we've had polls, we’ve had conferences, we've had different speeches. But no action," he said.


    ASAP may take aim at Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, Lauder said. King was stripped of his committee assignments by House Republicans earlier this year following bipartisan condemnation of his recent remarks on white supremacy and white nationalism.

    Lauder also said he would be interested in meeting with Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib after Israeli officials blocked them from entering the country ahead of a planned visit.

    "I'd like to sit down and talk to them," said Lauder, a Republican donor who has donated to President Trump's shared committees with the Republican party.

    ASAP will operate with both a nonprofit and a super PAC and use teams of researchers to monitor anti-Semitic comments.

    "If it's a city councilman, or it's a U.S. senator, or presidential candidate, we'll know about it," Lauder told The Times.

    Lauder will have the final say on which candidates are targeted because "it's my money and what I stand for," he said.

    Universities may face Lauder's wrath, too. Universities and professors that take "an anti-Semitic point of view" could see ASAP sounding the alarm to their donors, he told The Times.


    Democratic campaign consultant Doug Schoen and Republican strategist Nelson Warfield are also helping with ASAP, as is the consulting firm of Bradley Tusk, former campaign manager for ex-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

    Lauder has a net worth of $4.2 billion, according to Forbes. He's also president of the World Jewish Congress.

    They ought to start shooting these fuckers if this is the way they're going to behave every time they lose an election.

    Time to start culling the herd of morons, otherwise they'll overrun all of us.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Ousted Kentucky Governor seems to be giving Kentucky the middle finger. In his final days in office has been issuing pardons and commutations like it's candy at Halloween. A murderer whose family had raised over $20,000 for his campaign, a man who had decapitated his former lover and disposed of her body in a barrel, a man convicted of raping a child, a guy who killed his own parents and a business man who hired a hit man to solve a business problem

    Hey, I understand Kentucky's prisons have terrible over crowding, but don't they have any non violent offenders that they could let loose?

    Trump campaigned for him saying he was "tough on crime" and he was supported by the Kentucky Commonwealth attorney who now says he is "disgusted with himself" for ever supporting him.

    This guy must have felt that his entire political career was over with the defeat of his re-election, but at any rate, it's probably over now.

    His opportunity to send a message was early on. He should have vetoed anything that didnt have a short term path to balance. Instead he traded more money for the military in exchange for money everywhere else. The trillion dollar deficits have followed.

    It ain't rocket science. Cut 5% from the budget every year until it's balanced, that is at least a start, then we can worry about the debt.

    Hell, just freezing it for a few years will do the trick. But that takes courage and the ability to make choices.
