    So another “uh oh” moment for the Dems, compliments of Mark Warner on Face the Nation today.

    When asked about Comey’s memos, Warner said he has seen the memos and wants the public to see them as well –
    “BUT SOME ARE CLASSIFIED”.

    Yes, without any hesitation whatsoever, those words just rolled right out of his mouth.

    He quickly realized his slip-of-tongue and sprinted for cover by saying STRANGELY, SOME WERE CLASSIFIED AFTERWARD.

    How much evidence does the DOJ need to charge CORRUPT COMEY?

    RIDICULOUS!!

      The classified information in some of those memos was always classified. Comey did not follow established security procedures when wrote classified information on paper (or in the computer) without putting classification markings on the paper (or in the computer file). So, the memos (files) that had the classified info had to be properly marked as classified later. They were not “classified” (active verb) later, they were marked as classified later. Big difference.

        Hi BakoCarl,
        Exactly what you just said.

        I have found a simple way to explain this to my intentionally ignorant Dem friends.

        I ask them if they were to manufacture their own currency in their basement, would they stamp the bills COUNTERFEIT B before passing them off as payment

          Strange, my comment posted smack in the middle of typing it. And now my page keeps freezing up. This has been happening for a few weeks now (page freezing) and it only happens on this website.
          So Frustrating!

          Anyway, what I was in the middle of saying is, when I present them with that scenario, they seem to “get it”. They all say “NO” ……… They wouldn’t stamp the bills COUNTERFEIT. I say of course you wouldn’t, because that would be ridiculous – but does that mean they aren’t counterfeit, just because you didn’t stamp them COUNTERFEIT?

          Sometimes you just need to draw pictures. 😂

        What I’m wondering is if Comey is the ONLY person to have received these memos. If not, it’s easy enough to have someone else on the memo list show their memos–or maybe they’re all electronic and someone is messing with them in that way. BUT even then, a good computer whiz can determine if the docs have been tampered with and when.

        In short, this should be easy to prove or disprove, so what’s the big deal here?

      I believe Mark Warner sees himself as “VP material” for the 2020 Democrat Presidential run.
      He’s starting to “make waves” and get his “name” out there for Dem voter recognition.

      • Concerned Virginian says:

        Translation:
        I believe that Mark Warner is setting himself up (OR is being set up by the DNC/Dem elites) as “2020 VP material”. To wit: he’s “not charismatic” so no threat to a potential Dem Presidential candidate like, say, Kamala Harris (or even another Hillary Clinton run); he’s a confirmed member of the DC Swamp; he’s a U.S. Senator, so that “proves” that he “knows how to govern”; he can be relied upon to do EXACTLY what he’s told to do. I think the Dems DO NOT want another “Uncle Joe Biden” type of VP. Mark Warner would in their eyes probably fit the bill.

          Mark Warner was a center left Governor of Virginia before elected to the Senate. I lived in VA at that time and he didn’t do much to complain about. He wasn’t that bad in the Senate for several years either. He’s gone batty since Trump won though.

          He doesn’t fit the mold to be a presidential candidate on the Dem ticket…..but could be VP consideration like Tim Kaine was.

          However, if they go that route…..it would tell me they are definitely worried about VA flipping back to it’s red state roots.

          And, Bernie Sanders, and his radical progressives, will be a thorn in DNC ‘s side for at least a couple election cycles. So DNC will have their hands full.

    The talking points-coordination this past week by TCT (Sanders, Sekulow, Gorka, etc) and its surrogates were the best of the administration so far. The TCT has come a long, long way in six months.

    A comment on the new fake polls. I would imagine that the ‘explanations’ of them (why Trump supposedly has such low numbers) will involve heavy gaslighting. In this instance, the non-acknowledgment that a continuous, 9-month smear campaign has been run against the president since the time he won the election (actually, before then).

    For Trump to be at around 40% in a poll of adults with a D+12 skew after this all-out propaganda blitz is incredible. Remarkable.

    As I’ve said before, only Trump could have withstood this assault because of his strong pre-politics brand and iconic “American success symbol” status. Anyone else would have been crushed long, long ago.

        What you said is right, Mike — Trump is simply too “well-branded” and well-known to be smear-able.

        People might not like Trump, but they know he loves the USA and he is basically a good guy, even if he is “true New York city” in attitude and a bit coarse at times.

        People have always loved Trump. People of all backgrounds. It’s hard to make that go away with fake Russia, sexist, racist smears.

      I wrote the following:

      The President’s APPROVAL percentage in Ohio is 13 percent HIGHER than his disapproval percentage based on PPD’s most recent poll conducted during the first week of July. What is so exciting about the President’s approval percentage in this poll is that the margin widened by 3% points from their earlier poll in May.

      The PPD Poll was the most accurate poll in calling FL, OH, MI and PA before the election for DJT!

      From the article linked above:

      President Trump still remains popular in Ohio. Fifty-four percent (54%) of likely voters in Ohio approve of the job President Trump is doing, while just 41% disapprove.

      I got the following reply:

      Ohio can believe in the tooth fairy if it so desires, but regardless, there isn’t one, nor is Trump seen by most Americans to be doing the job.

      Because he isn’t.

      If he appeared on “The Apprentice,” he’d be fired as a failure, an incompetent, not even a pretty face, and unqualified.

Since I have two Trump T-shirts and a Trump hat, I consider myself part of the Trump Team. I now officially report All my Russian Contacts over the past year:

    1. Talked to four Russian motel housekeepers when they came to replace towels, etc. in my room. Some of them taught me some Russian words. They smiled a lot.

    2. Have listened to a Russian radio program on a community-supported station – so far to the left you can’t listen to it the rest of the week – almost every Sunday since the program began. Program content included a recipe for Halupkes, a childhood favorite of mine, one or two Russian lessons, some Russian news, which I recognized because the male reader mentioned “Croatia” and a couple of other names I recognized.

    3. On a classical radio station, I have heard symphonies by Russian composers. Also, I have attended several astounding Russian operas in the past two years at MetOpera Live in HD, and observed several interviews of the Russian opera singers, both male and female, during intermissions, including the beloved and handsome baritone, Dmitri Aleksandrovich Hvorostovsky .

      No Thug Left Behind
      Obsessed with “racial equity,” St. Paul schools abandoned discipline—and unleashed mayhem.
      In the Obama years, America’s public education system embarked on a vast social experiment that threatened to turn schools into educational free-fire zones. The campaign—carried out in the name of “racial equity”—sought to reduce dramatically the suspension rate of black students, who get referred for discipline at much higher rates than other students. From the top down, the U.S. Department of Education drove the effort; from the bottom up, local educational bureaucrats have supported and implemented it.

          Let’s not leave out California

          The state of California is poised to award thousands of high school degrees to dropouts by passing a new law retroactively removing the requirement to pass a high school exit exam.

          The California High School Exit Exam (CASHEE) was created in 2004, and is intended to make sure that students have a rudimentary grasp of English and mathematics before being awarded a high school diploma, and to counter the phenomenon of students receiving passing grades while learning almost nothing. The test is hardly complex. The math test, for instance, only covers 8th grade-level material and can be passed if students answer 55 percent of questions correctly. About 80 percent of California high schoolers take and pass it on their first try while in the 10th grade, and overall passage rates for the class of 2014 were above 97 percent.

          But now, a bill passed Thursday by the California legislature, which Gov. Jerry Brown is expected to sign, suspends the exam through 2018, while also retroactively suspending it back to 2004. That means thousands of students who failed to ever pass the exam but otherwise completed all other requirements will now be able to receive diplomas.

        These schools, in CA and NJ (and I am sure others) are the best argument AGAINST local school choice that President Trump has proposed. Neither Trump or any of his children had to go to 15 different schools in 4 or 5 different States. If they had, President Trump would be ashamed of proposing local control. It may be great for those who live in one town all their life, but these days people travel, move around, and the kids get dumped into whatever school is there.

What magic formula are you proposing that would eliminate those differences? Money doesn’t work. Millions have been thrown at the schools in Newark for example with no improvement. Charter schools in DC & other communities have had better success. The most private schools are cheaper than what is paid to “educate” children in Newark (22k/pupil/year).

              People with young children consider schools when choosing a community. If school choice happens they will have a wider range of choices and can find a catholic school, a Montessori school, a charter school if the public school is not well rated. How could that be wrong?

You think that if some central authority mandated exactly what was covered in every school at every grade level you could move from school to school and have no disruption. I think that is a horrible idea because everything that we have seen mandated by a central authority has failed miserably.

              America has 50 laboratories called States and people can move between them freely to seek the best environment for themselves. America is based on individual freedoms. Communities and families deserve the freedom to chose the standards of the schools and the material introduced and age appropriateness. Parents deserve the right to chose a school that is more academic or more oriented towards the arts if those schools are available. They deserve to starve the bad schools & teachers by moving on.

              One size does not fit all and the best way to come up with solutions that work is to introduce competition. Government mandated solutions are the problems not the solutions. I’m sorry that you had to move so often growing up. It is very difficult to deal with constantly changing expectations and environments but the school system needs to meet the needs of all children and the best way for that to happen is to give the parents the option to select the school they believe suits their child best.

The reason why “expert” parent have not been able to use them more is because unless there is a school choice program the parents pay taxes for their public school and then need to pay tuition at a private or charter school. That is out of reach for many and is very unfair. That is the kind of discrimination I hate, the kind that closes the door on children whose parents can’t afford that second tuition, and keeps those kids in the failing pubic schools while other kids are able to get a better education. So you pay school property tax and get nothing worth having in many cases.

                  I’m a former teacher. Unions are against school choice, it threatens teachers jobs. If a failing school loses enrollement, they lose money.

To a certain extent, but what really has to happen is the buerocrats need to be on the chopping block as well.

                  Dems are against school choice because they get millions of dollars from teacher’s unions.

                  I lived in a small town that had one public school and one Catholic school. The competition did make both schools better, they had to innovate and improve to survive. And even though they competed, they were able to actually foster a working relationship of sorts where services for special Ed and Title 1 were available at the private school provided by the public school. I worked at the small private school, it was a great place. Thanks to wealthy donors, we were able to offer full scholarships to those who might need it, so we had a very diverse social-economic and It was wonderful to see. We had enough people defect to our school over academic issues with the public school that they actually came to us for curriculum advice.

                  It can be done, it just takes people willing to work with others, even people we disagree with and/or are difficult.

          I had 40 different addresses by the time I was 21. However my parents were very careful to pick the best school system they could and ALSO schooled me at home. That is why I can read and write despite being a victim of the ‘See and Say’, The John Dewey Method of keeping kids from learning to read so they would turn into good little socialists.

          Dumbing Down America

          The Look – Say Method
          “[…]The progressives were a peculiar bunch. They were members of the Protestant academic elite who no longer believed in the religion of their fathers. They put their new utopian faith in science, evolution, and psychology. Science explained the physical world, evolution explained the origin of living matter (the first living entity crawled out of the primal ooze), and psychology permitted the scientific study of human nature and suggested ways of controlling the behavior of human beings.

          In 1898, their leader, John Dewey, hatched a long-range plan for the socialists to take over America for its own good. The plan was to use the public schools of the nation to train American children to adopt the precepts of future utopian living. The key to the program was in primary education, where children were taught the three Rs. In an essay entitled “The Primary-Education Fetish,” Dewey launched an attack on the traditional 3 Rs, which he claimed perpetuated the abhorrent capitalistic, individualistic system. The only way to utopia was the destruction of that system and its replacement by a new enlightened form of instruction.

          The key to the progressive curriculum would be a new way of teaching reading: a sight method that teaches children to read English as if it were an ideographic system such as Chinese. The method had been used before experimentally in the primary schools of Boston in the 1830s and ‘40s and proved to be a disaster. But that’s what Dewey and his progressive colleagues wanted. By 1933, the new look-say program, “Dick and Jane,” was ready for the public schools.[…]”

    The theme of the day, more so than Russia, seems to be the new Fake ABC/WaPo poll. As someone said above, this was put out to tried to hurt the health care push. Without the knowledge that the push would be delayed because of McCain’s health concern.

    Don Jr story seems about done. Nothing illegal, doesn’t matter if it’s supposedly “immoral” (as is meeting with Ukraine on oppo research, or getting leaked debate questions). There is nothing more here, it seems, and so the story should die fairly soon.

    The only element of the story that seems “unresolved” at the moment is that there appear to be two currently unnamed people who were in the meeting (translator and someone else).

    Also of note, and you can’t make this up —-> Comey got a book deal, and he’s going to write a book and talk more about his conversations with the president. LOL!

    Dropping this here to follow-up on my comments about Americans’ obsession with healthcare and the ridiculous amounts some are willing to pay for insurance. Most healthcare providers provide a cash price for services that is hundreds or thousands of $$ less than the fake insurance prices. Here’s an example of the wide range of things you can pay for yourself, in cash. Check out the CT scans and similar, in particular.

      Thanks, kathyca. This is the way our healthcare system should operate vs. the Surprise! one gets because the systems has gotten so used to “someone else paying the bill” — because we have had mostly employer-sponsored insurance programs since WWII, then expanded by the Great Society: Medicaid, Medicare, Tricare, VA, etc.

      Competition for those consumer dollars will flatten healthcare pricing in no time. Publishing their prices should be mandatory for a provider to hold a license to practice.

        I tuned a neighbor into OSC pricing. She presented their figures at her local provider and they met the same figures. That says it all — competition. Many other providers are now following suit. Prices on-line.

    So what are America’s favorite charming IT rascals up to now? A new article about them in the Daily Caller. Mostly a recap with a little elaboration about the whole life insurance scam perpetrated on the step mom. FTA:

    “However, members of Congress have not treated the situation as a potential security breach, instead saying that they trust Imran and do not think he would sell their data or use it for nefarious purposes like blackmail.”

    Pakistan’s army spokesman Major-General Asif Ghafoor told reporters 16 Jul 2017 of Pakistan’s new anti-IS military operation near Afghan border.

    “General Ghafoor said the military informed its Afghan counterparts and the NATO-led Resolute Support mission in advance about launching of Sunday’s operation so they could enhance deployment on their side to prevent fleeing terrorists from entering Afghanistan.”

    Plus – a wall. “…fencing the entire 2,600-kilometer border with Afghanistan and construction of outposts as well as forts is underway to effectively guard the largely porous frontier against terrorist infiltration.”

    Phil Donahue: Trump era ‘darkest political moment’ in history:

    Former talk-show host Phil Donahue on Saturday reflected on President Trump’s administration, calling it “the darkest political moment in American history.”

    “This is the darkest political moment in American history,” Donahue said on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” Saturday. “Who’s going to argue that?”

      Yep, even if it weren’t Gowdy; if it is a congressional investigation, nothing happens. They just have those for one of two reasons:
      1) to slander political rivals, or
      2) to pretend to investigate rather than actually prosecute. I.e. use as a cover-up,

    The “Better Care Reconciliation Act if 2017” inspires the use of opiods or liquor. Another unreadable document requiring a battalion of lawyers to interpret and a gazillioin ways for someone to interfere with your lifestyle, healthcare and future. Read it, then tell me how this makes my life simpler at less cost. Our morons in Congress really think we share their brains.

    Another lengthy, but worthy interview, this time with Cynthia McKinney, former senator from Atlanta when she embarrassed Don Rumsfield about politics, 9/11 and cost of waging of war in the Middle East. Now teaching in Bangledesh, she has become more activist than ever, questioning the value of politics as a “blood sport” teeming with corruption and disregard for the citizens supposedly represented. She again asks all the questions that were asked before and never answered. Have fun!

    Exactly who is the FOX news target audience now…I you add MSNBC and CNN together they easily beat Faux in the ratings every night…Is it JEB types…Data says average age of FOX viewer is 68 and the adult diaper,catheter and Viagra commercials are non-stop….Just wondering..I won’t go back and I would rather cut my leg off then watch Baier,Roberts,Krauthammer,Hayes,the Five etc…..

    It’s a bizarre situation in the age of Trump…There are tens of millions looking for something the crap on FOX isn’t even coming close to producing…I don’t know anyone who watches anymore and these folks watched from beginning…..

      Look at the commercials. Older age group using all those Pharma products, the Reverse Mortgage crowd is over 62, etc. And people with money (conservatives) who donate to lots of charities.

      Other cable nets hunt younger audiences.
