“If a statesman is one who looks to the next generation and a politician one who looks to the next election, a political consultant must be one who looks to the next tracking poll.”

    Good article on Politico this morning about how the Trump administration is riding roughshod over environmental laws in Nevada, for the primary benefit of an AUSTRALIAN MINING COMPANY. Center for Biological Diversity has filed yet another lawsuit.

    Have to love Pear and Moderatus as their boy, Trump, continues to make America great again…..for foreign mining companies.

      Let's see, that is Trump Sad!-ministation aid for an Australian mining company … and for a subsidiary of a Brazilian meat company … a Russian aluminum company … a Canadian oil/shale transportation company … a Ukrainian LNG transportation company …

      I'm sensing a theme here.

    Visited Pols this morning on my phone, and saw an ad telling me to vote against Prop. CC!

    While the just-released audio from Michael Bloomberg’s now-controversial speech in Aspen hasn’t been verified, here’s Bloomberg quoted by The Aspen Times saying Stop ‘n’ Frisk GOOD, taxed and regulated marijuana BAD.

    Can anybody involved in Colorado politics — who was in the audience for Bloomberg’s speech — verify any of what’s claimed he said?

    It feels like the writers are just phoning it in now.

    With five days until early voting begins, top Democratic presidential campaigns still in the dark about new caucus process

    Campaigns here in the Silver State have been told that the Nevada State Democratic Party won’t be using the same app and vendor that were in part responsible for bungling the results of Iowa’s caucus last week, that the party won’t be using any app at all, and that what the party does plan to use is best described as a “tool” or “calculator.” Beyond that, aides aren’t really sure what’s in store for the state’s Feb. 22 Democratic caucus.

    They don’t know how early voting, which was originally supposed to take place on an app on an iPad, is set to work. They don’t know how those votes are going to flow back to early voters’ home precincts to be counted alongside their neighbors preferences just as if they were there on Caucus Day. (A second app was supposed to accomplish that function.) They also don’t know how the Caucus Day results will be transmitted to the party.

      I read the Nevada DSP for a friend – it’s not that weird.
      It’s not quite as easy as Colorado, but it ain’t Texas by a damm sight

      It was finalized late – but just read the document, practice the math.

    “That Roger Stone phone call was perfect! Just perfect! Junior listened to the whole deal.”
