    Ha! Ignore the fist-a-cuffs promise by our outgoing Governor.



    I think it was hilarious! And that's in the circumstance that Terry McAuliffe is a 2020 candidate; not an our right call for brawl.

    Donald would duck out of that circumstance. He's not tough enough to handle himself were that to happen. But hey...Donald's biggest love is ratings of TV and entertainment and you KNOW that would be a rating blockbuster!

  • So... I haven't heard it said, but seems like in my lifetime, once a President - twice a President... that means our list for the next election has Trump vs McAuliffe for the Heavyweight title, or Trump vs Oprah for the highest rated TV appearance. Such entertainment.

  • I’m on my cell and I got this from Facebook. Couldn’t make the link work so I’m pasting the whole thing. It was written by Andrew Klavin

    Quote
    Nothing scandalizes a leftist like the truth. Point out that women and men are different, that black Americans commit a disproportionate amount of violent crime, that most terrorist acts are committed by Muslims, and the Left leaps to its collective feet in openmouthed shock, like Margaret Dumont after a Groucho Marx wisecrack. This is racism! This is sexism! This is some sort of phobia! I’m shocked, shocked to find facts being spoken in polite company!
    No one is really shocked, of course. This is simply a form of bullying. The Left has co-opted our good manners and our good will in order to silence our opposition to their bad policies. The idea is to make it seem impolite and immoral to mention the obvious.
    The bullying is highly effective and very dangerous. In England, in the city of Rotherham, at least 1,400 non-Muslim girls, some as young as 11, were brutally raped by Muslim immigrants over a period of years in the 2000s. Police and other officials worked to keep the facts hidden because, according to multiple reports, they were afraid of being called racist. Think about that: police officers did not want to seem racist, so they stood by and let their city’s children be raped. The same thing goes on in other cities in England and throughout Europe. And in fact, some who have spoken out have had their careers curtailed by manufactured scandal. The message is clear: it’s just not nice to tell the truth. It’s just not done. Don’t do it.
    Here in the states, the First Amendment has so far allowed old-fashioned American loudmouths to fight the system whenever they could find ways around our monolithic corporate media. But the Empire of Lies is quick to strike back. Google/YouTube now stands charged by multiple accusers of singling out conservative voices for censorship, “fact-checking,” and demonetization. Hidden-camera videos released by Project Veritas this week show Twitter employees conspiring to “shadow ban” conservatives on their system. On campus, intelligent conservative speakers of good will like Ben Shapiro, Charles Murray, and Cristina Hoff-Somers have faced violent protests meant to shut them up.
    No person of importance on the right seeks to silence anyone on the left. The Left, on the other hand, is broadly committed to ostracizing, blacklisting, and even criminalizing right-wing speech.
    Enter President Donald Trump. He is a rude and crude person. He speaks like a Queens real estate guy on a construction site. And because he does not have good manners, he thoughtlessly breaks the rules with which the Left has sought to muzzle those who disagree with them. In this regard, I frequently compare Trump to Randle Patrick McMurphy, the loudmouthed, ill-mannered roustabout from Ken Kesey’s brilliant novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. McMurphy comes into an insane asylum controlled by a pleasant, smiling nightmare of a head nurse named Ratched. Nurse Ratched, while pretending to be the soul of motherly care, is actually a castrating, silencing tyrant. Her rules of good manners, supposedly fashioned for the benefit of all, are really a system of mental slavery. All of McMurphy’s salient character flaws suddenly become heroic in the context of her oppression. Only his belligerent ignorance of what constitutes good behavior can overturn the velvet strangulation of her rule.
    For Nurse Ratched, read Hillary Clinton, CNN, the New York Times, Yale University, Twitter, and Google/YouTube—all the tender ministers of polite silence and enforced dishonesty. If Donald Trump’s boorishness crashes like a bull through the crystal madhouse of their leftism—well, good. It’s about time.
    I don’t know exactly what Trump said in a closed-door meeting with senators at the White House this week. Unnamed sources say that he referred to some African countries and Haiti as “shitholes.” Maybe so; sounds like him. In any case, when it comes to a chance to attack Trump, our journalists don’t waste time with fact-gathering or source-identifying. Like Madonna, they just strike a pose. Various media knuckleheads have reacted to the alleged comment by calling Trump “racist,” “Nazi,” “Evil,” and a “terrorist sympathizer.”
    (Personally, my first thought on hearing about the remark was: “What squirrely little tattle-tale of a weasel went running to the press with that?” But never mind. That’s just me.)
    Let’s state the obvious. Some countries are shitholes. To claim that this is racist is racist. They are not shitholes because of the color of the populace but because of bad ideas, corrupt governance, false religion, and broken culture. Further, most of the problems in these countries are generated at the top. Plenty of rank-and-file immigrants from such ruined venues ultimately make good Americans—witness those who came from 1840s potato-famine Ireland, a shithole if ever there was one! It takes caution and skill to separate the good from the bad.
    For these very reasons, absurd immigration procedures like chain migration, lotteries, and unvetted entries are deeply destructive. They can lead to the sort of poor choices that create a Rotherham. Trump’s suggestions—to vet immigrants for pro-American ideas and skills that will help our country—are smart and reasonable and would clearly make the system better if implemented.
    So, when it comes to the Great Shithole Controversy of 2018, my feeling is: I do not care, not even a little. I’m sorry that it takes someone like Trump to break the spell of silence the Left is forever weaving around us. I wish a man like Ronald Reagan would come along and accomplish the same thing with more wit and grace. But that was another culture. History deals the cards it deals; we just play them. Trump is what we’ve got.
    For all the bad language, for all the loose talk, I would rather hear a man speak as a man without fear of the Nurse Ratcheds in the press and the academy than have him neutered and gagged by a system of good manners that has been misused as a form of oppression. Better impoliteness than silence. Better crudeness than lies.
    We have seen the effect of uncontrolled immigration on Europe. It is very, very bad. The fact is: some countries are shitholes. I don’t want this to become one of them.

  • Steve Schmidt, chairman of John McCain's presidential campaign, life-long Republican, sums it up in fewer words. (This is a combination of 5 tweets to simplify the text.)

    Quote
    Steve Schmidt

    @SteveSchmidtSES
    The debasement of the office of the President of the United States of America is a tragedy.  Trump has stained our national honor with his overt and unabashed racism. The people defending him on TV look like fools.

    The Trump faction in America accounts for between 32-36 percent of voters. The overwhelming majority of our fellow citizens are aghast at the racism, malevolence, chaos and corruption of this administration.  November 2018 will present an opportunity to deliver a massive

    Repudiation of Trumpism. Fire is part of the natural life cycle of the forest. It destroys the forest but also purifies and renews it so that the cycle of life can begin again. So it must be for the Trump-Republican party.  Only through repudiation and defeat can it be renewed 2.

    The corrupted, rotten and complicit Republican majority that is abetting this Presidents damage to our institutions, national security and domestic tranquility must face electoral anhialation.  A massive coalition of Democrats, independent and appalled Republicans must come 3.

    Together to deliver a message to the world that the American people will defend our Republic and the inheritance bequeathed to us by previous generations. A righteous anger is building in this country and it must be channeled in to the 2018 elections. Enough.  Defeat them all.

  • The democrats and all of the other swamp dwellers can't stand the fact that they can't touch Trump so they constantly spread lies and now lower themselves to physical threats. Isn't threatening the President a crime? I lost faith in John McCain a long, long time ago so I don't care what him or any of his people have to say. If the democrats want my support - there is only have one candidate that I would vote for - Mark Warner.

    I've said to several circle that the party needs to have a unified vision and not JUST the resist and call out Donald on his 1million a day lies and BS.

    And Mark Warner- I agree. Always has been and always will be my man. I just worry that his time may have past in the eyes of the base of the party. Those who want the left-left to rally the base on primary.

    Mark Warner is Presidential material through and through.

  • I know I've said this at least once before on this forum, if Jim Webb had gotten the nomination, he would have gotten my vote - and I agree about Mark Warner also. Heck, I even voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary, because I wished the Democratic candidate would be someone but Clinton. I also said a number of times that neither party would get my support if the nominated a Bush or a Clinton. As long as people like Oprah Winfrey get serious attention by the Dems, I can't take the party seriously and right now she's #11 on the list according to the Washington Post. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/12/22/the-top-15-democratic-presidential-candidates-for-2020-ranked/?utm_term=.ad72dc2c54e7

    With 2020 now on the horizon, the top 2 contenders are Sanders and Biden. Warner is not on the list. Webb is not on the list. As it has been for what seems like forever, either party gets their chosen elected by putting up a candidate that gets enough of the other party's voters to switch for the alternative for any given election.

    Webb was my man. The problem was he wasn't a career politician, was too moderate and service-first/part later, and it was the year of the Clinton machine.

    In 2020. Biden isn't going to run. He'll be too old and he's said he was no interest. I'm sure Bernie will throw his hat in the ring for the party (that is NOT A MEMBER OF!). As for Oprah...thats just fandom and commentators trying to tune up viewership. No one is seriously considering her. And she's a great woman, but a celebrity with no governmental experience or policy accomplishments...wait...where have I heard that from before???

  • The party has moved to the left since Bernie entered the primaries. Clinton tried to catch the wave, but had too much Goldman Sachs baggage. You can argue from the election data that she lost because she couldn't bring all the Bernie voters to her side.

    If Jim Webb had stayed in the Senate, perhaps he would have performed better in the debates. As it was, he did poorly and left the impression of an irascible old man. It worked for Bernie because he had built a theme around his candidacy.

    As volatile as the political atmosphere is today, imagine what it will be in 2020. At this point no one can say with certainty that Trump will be the Republican nominee. How can we possibly know who will lead the Dems?

    Given those caveats, why not speculate? There is nothing to lose.

  • Trump is in perfect health. I will stop making medical excuses for him. He is fully conscious of his lying, cheating, and thieving. Every foul deed is carefully planned from sexual abuse to cheating on his wives with prostitutes. Even his lawyers are employed to this end. His racism is purposeful and intended to perpetuate the worst behaviors in the nation's history. His goal is to create a more divisive society. No wonder he thinks his presidency is the most successful in history.

    The mental test he took is a pre-dementia assessment. He passed with flying colors. His inability to read, short attention span, and semi-literacy are not health-related. He has chosen to be a lazy TV addict, and relishes in revealing to the world via Twitter that he is a complete idiot. 

    He is Donald Trump; he can do anything he pleases. He can even grow taller as he ages.

  • Common Sense, Solon and Steven just said the same thing in their own words... Trump is odd... which is what I've been saying from the beginning. He didn't just become odd, he's been odd. The U.S. elected an odd person as President and he is what he is. Odd people behave in odd ways.
