101  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Clinton: Russians Had To Be "Guided By Americans" "Hard Not To" Suspect Trump on: May 31, 2017, 08:41:06 pm
That's not much different from what a lot of people think. The fact of the matter is, it doesn't matter if Russia wasn't the reason that she lost, the fact that they interfered at all is a major problem.

"That's not much different from what a lot of people think." - Tea Partiers about Trump's birther comments

A fired FBI director, a son-in-law trying to set up a secret channel and numerous other pieces of evidence suggests that something was wrong here. It's beyond foolish to compare this to the Birther issue, which was truly a conspiracy that was pushed even after it was clearly debunked.

I don't believe that story about Barron. It really sounds like some sort of tale that was cooked up by staff.

Sanders is not Ronald Reagan. Not even close.

A losing primary candidate isn't exactly a great role model for winning.

107  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: AP: Trump asking world leaders to call him on his cellphone over offical line on: May 30, 2017, 11:06:34 pm
Quote
Presidents generally place calls on one of several secure phone lines, including those in the White House Situation Room, the Oval Office or the presidential limousine. Even if Trump uses his government-issued cellphone, his calls are vulnerable to eavesdropping, particularly from foreign governments, national security experts say.

If you are speaking on an open line, then its an open line, meaning those who have the ability to monitor those conversations are doing so, said Derek Chollet, a former Pentagon adviser and National Security Council official now at the German Marshall Fund of the United States.

A president doesnt carry with him a secure phone, Chollet said. If someone is trying to spy on you, then everything youre saying, you have to presume that others are listening to it.

The President should be making calls on a wired, secure connected. Any wireless calls could be breached, even on a secure cell phone line.

Encryption can make wireless very secure. Of course I wouldn't expect someone who supported a candidate in a Presidential primary who wanted to backdoor all encryption to understand that.

I would expect a Sanders supporter to throw up a defense for Trump. Encryption exists, but a wired connection is still safer than a wireless one and protocol is for the President to use wired connections for the type of calls Trump is talking about making.

Remember, this is the person who criticized Hillary Clinton as being lax with security.
111  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: HRC - "Trump/Sanders capitalized on anger, I beat both, 3rd party ppl are crazy" on: May 30, 2017, 02:47:59 pm
I've said it before, but I'm glad that she lost. Trump is exactly the disaster that Democrats in 2018 need to win state governments in order to have a say in redistricting.

I've said it before, but I'm glad that he lost. Bush is exactly the disaster that Democrats in 2002 need to win back the House.
9/11 gave Bush nigh impossible approval ratings for any President to duplicate. Not a good comparison.

113  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Darrell Issa holed up on roof of his district office hiding from constituents on: May 30, 2017, 02:26:59 pm
I suppose it's too much to hope that he'll jump. Smiley

Judging by Issa's long history of committing arson for insurance fraud...maybe he's up there for another reason

You have any evidence of that?  I hope you are not just making that up.
Not every negative thing said against a Republican is a lie. Issa's issues are old news and well known by most.

It does seem like incitement and that scary.
115  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Is Rod Blum going to lose in 2018? on: May 30, 2017, 01:31:02 pm
It mostly certainly won't be left off the Democratic target list and is already on there. In an all Republican midterm, Blum is probably not going to win again.
116  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Gianforte's win is a sea change for US politics; Violence is OK now on: May 26, 2017, 05:22:46 pm
It happened the day before the election and there was early voting, so it's hard to tell how many voters were actually put off by the attack. Besides, I think something like this happening in a swing district would actually sink a candidate.

Why is anyone arguing with Beet? After that big switching to Republican post and then switching back to Democratic not long after, it's obvious that Beet is attention seeking.

As someone who has run for office before and has been interviewed by reporters, I never once wanted to attack them for asking questions that were difficult.
You didn't need to do anything crazy to lose anyway. You talk a lot about your "credentials." Name yourself already.

You've asked for my name before. I'm not posting my information to be stalked and harassed or worst. Why do you want my name?
Writing yourself in is not "running for office."

You aren't going to bait me into giving my name. Go away, stalker.

And you are headed towards being the next Byron Looper.

That was a lot more than a body slam. That crew from Fox News is going to get fired for telling all of that.
123  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: MT-AL: Rob Quist (D) vs. Greg Gianforte (R) vs. Mark Wicks (L), May 25 on: May 24, 2017, 08:28:07 pm
Gianforte needs to do damage control now.... somehow... Honestly, IMO it'd be the best if he were just honest about this entire thing and apologized publicly.

That's not enough.

Yeah, well, after a congressional candidate body slams a reporter, few things are going to be enough to lessen the damage done.

It's not physically possible for most folks to body slam an adult male. If Gianforte can pull that off he is a major stud to be sure.

2017 GOP folks. Beta males need not apply. Must physically assault reporter to receive "stud" status.


Proof is in the pudding, isn't? This guy gets in someone's face, gets (allegedly, by his own accord) owned, and goes on twitter about broken glasses.

Pure beta move!

Yes, the voters prefer alpha males.

It's not really surprising that you are pro-violence. You probably would have still voted for Byron Looper after he shot Tommy Burks. Shameful.

As we have seen with previous special elections this year, the bulk of the GOP vote comes in on Election Day.
