  1. Trump stinks.

    And now he has summoned all his ass kissers

    Like Carnholio to befoul America with their own stinks.

    Great God almighty.

    Trump stinks.

    And Susan Collins doesn't smell so good herself.

  2. I can't believe Gerbils has found another GOP sucker willing to pay him to spread Trumpstink here again.

    Oh well, at least Gerbils is doing us a favor by providing all the evidence needed as to why Republicans deserve the boot come November.

  3. Congratulations to the newest recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize!

    The award went to Nadia Murad, 25, who became the voice and face of women who survived sexual violence by the Islamic State, and to Dr. Denis Mukwege, 63, who has treated thousands of women in a country once called the rape capital of the world.

    They have worked through grave risks to their own lives to help survivors and to bring their stories to the world.

    Trump is probably puzzled about why he didn't win, given his achievements in the last two years are far greater than anything anyone has ever done before in the history of the world!

     

  4. I am glad they won the award.  Very deserving.  Too bad Obama let it happen to them.

      1. Papa:

        I thought it was well written and on point.

        “PRESIDENT GEORGE W. Bush would have never abandoned us,” says Faysal Shaqooli, a Yazidi from Iraq and former interpreter for the U.S. Army who sought political asylum and now lives in the Nebraska. He was one of the 150 Yazidis who arrived in Washington this week to protest in front of the White House. They pleaded for President Obama to take immediate action to help Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq.

        After a couple of years of disengagement in Iraq, President Barack Obama has suddenly woken up to the stark reality that the war on terrorism is far from over and the Islamic militants and terrorists are winning.

        To fulfill his campaign promise, Obama decided to quickly pull out U.S. troops in 2011 despite warnings of the political instability that it would create in the region. And his administration failed to develop a viable transition plan to maintain security and remain engaged in Iraq. His politically driven decision was a devastating blow to the Yazidis – whose religion blends aspects of Islam, Christianity and Zoroastrianism – and Christians, who knew that it meant the beginning of the eradication of the minority religious communities in the region.

          1. CHB — by spreading the truth like that, you are seriously messing with Gerbil's livelihood!

            I found out the source of Gerbil’s propaganda piece — it came directly from the Trumpski Ministry of Truth:

            Mercedes Schlapp, the director of strategic communications at the White House

  5. How can I find the 5 house races where the Dem candidate is at or just below 50%? I want to donate to the 5 places where the extra money could be the difference between a win and a loss.

    thanks – dave

     

      1. David: even though I am a common sense conservative Republican, I will get you the information you've requested, unlike the "discourteous" Andrew.

        Larry Sabato's Crystal Ball is a good reference:  http://www.centerforpolitics.org/crystalball/

        Real Clear Politics is another good site that provides a mix of both left and right articles and polling results. Both sites currently show the Dems within a close margin of taking the House.

        Bad news for The Realist. Sabato is showing CO – 3 as likely Republican.

        1. CHB – thank you. I went to 538 and found:

          where the R is slightly (<1% ahead):
          Gil Cisneros [CA-39]
          Harla Rouda [CA-48]
          Lizzie Fletcher [TX-7]
          Paul Davis [KA-2]
          Elisa Slotkin [MI-8]
          Debbie Powell [FL-26]
          Antonio Delgado [NY-19]
          Leslie Cockburn [VA-5]

          And here are the toss-up races where the D is slightly (<1%) ahead:
          Kim Schrier [WA-8]
          Cindy Axne [IA-3]
          Sharice Davids [KA-3]

          I donated to the 8 where the dem is behind but within 1% of the repub

    1. There are several sources to get you started: I happen to like the Cook Report, though they just list "toss-ups" and there's a WHOLE bunch more than 5.   https://www.cookpolitical.com/ratings/house-race-ratings

      A geeky site with lots of details about HOW he determines competitive House districts is at https://www.thecrosstab.com/project/2018-midterms-forecast/ . Down near the bottom is a list of the probabilities from his calculation for EVERY House seat. Obviously, closer to 50% is what you are looking for.
