    Today is American Revolution Day. April 19, 1775……battles of Lexington and Concord.

    Today is also Trump Stinks day.  Stay upwind my friends.

  3. Conserv. Head Banger says:

    It is a bit unfortunate that Vger could not give his Trump rhetoric a rest for a day so the real meaning of what happened 242 years ago today could be pondered and re-visited.

    We know that Trump stinks and don't need reminding every day.

    I just noticed that Andrew posted a link yesterday to Colorado Peak Politics and a "hypocrite alert." 

    I think it would be useful to find out if Andrew, PP, and Moderatus have any real cojones at all, or if they're all talk. How about the three of you petitioning CPP to set up a chat board like Colorado Pols has done? If they're not willing to do that, I would offer that CPP is equally lacking in real cojones. 

    • Andrew Carnegie says:

      Having cojones and doing your bidding are readily distinguishable.

      If you want to contribute to CPP petition them yourself.

      Perhaps you can offer to share with them your constitutional wisdom pointing our where in said document Senate hearings are required.  And perhaps they will decline your offer when they realize you don't know what you are talking about.

      • VoyageurVoyageur says:

        Hey, stupid one, the Constitution says the Senate "shall" advise and consent, not "might unless it can get some cheap partisan advantage by ignoring this clause."

        Always glad to contribute to your education, Carnholio.smiley

        • Andrew Carnegie says:

          V

          Note it does not say "Shall give the advice and consent desired by Coloradopols".

          The advice was "Fuck off".

          Neither you or Obama apparently are very good at taking advice.

          • VoyageurVoyageur says:

            The "consent" is optional, they don't have to approve.  But it was a criminal act to refuse to even hear him out.   When the Constitution says "shall," it means shall.  But you would suck the shit from a syphilitic camel to advance your racist cause so go ahead with your dishonored lies.

    Colorado Pols is the ghetto of political discourse. I don't think CPP cares what you think, nor should they.

  6. Andrew Carnegie says:

    I thought it was the Russians.

    Jonathan Allen, a columnist at Roll Call and one of the authors of the book “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” stated that Clinton’s campaign believed that “if more people” in the Midwest knew about the election, “it would hurt her.”

    Allen said, “[S]ome of those Midwestern states, particularly in Michigan and a bit and Wisconsin, her campaign believed that if more people knew about the election, it would hurt her. So, one of the reasons that they said that they didn’t spend as much time there, didn’t send her as much, in fact, she never set foot in Wisconsin in this campaign, was the idea that she would actually create a backlash for herself if more people were aware of the election.”

    To know her is to not like her.  Ouch.

    Ladies and Gentlemen meet Donnie's amazing friend, Alex.  Alex likes chili.  Alex is a narcissist.  Alex thinks our government is lining juice boxes with estrogen to turn boys gay. Alex thinks Sandy Hook was a hoax. Alex depends on morans like PeePee, Moldy and KornJolio. 

    Maybe Alex could give up the chili and eat some of Donnie's beautiful chocolate cake? 

    When Donald Trump called in to Alex Jones's radio show, during the Republican presidential primary, he told the host known as a leading 9/11 “truther” that his reputation is “amazing.” When Trump accused the media of covering up terrorist attacks, in February, the president appeared to be echoing a conspiracy theory promoted by Jones's website, Infowars.

    And when Trump was preparing to deliver his first address to a joint session of Congress, Infowars somehow got a preview of the president's talking points, hours before White House press secretary Sean Spicer shared them in a briefing with reporters.

     

    Right-wing radio host Alex Jones had a gastronomic catastrophe when giving a deposition ahead of his custody battle with his ex-wife, a court heard Tuesday.

    His ex-wife, Kelly Jones, wants custody of their three kids, aged 9-14. They have lived with the Infowars boss in Austin, Texas, since the couple divorced in 2015.

    Things took an awkward turn on the first day of the trial when her lawyer claimed Jones had forgotten 'basic facts' about his kids during a deposition because 'he had a big bowl of chili for lunch,' Austin 360 reported.
