        Great idea! I live in Portland and DT stars would be a great addition to the “upscale”, “trendy” streets in several parts of the city. After Mayor Wheeler’s recent fabulous foot-in-mouth performances, there’s a noticeable “softening” of the strident anti-Trump tone. I bet there wouldn’t be but a whimper about the stars, and it would sure cheer up a whole lot of us!

            Not that I’d object to that, but the question is who’d take his place? Portland hasn’t elected an effective mayor since Vera Katz left office in 2004. It’s been one clown after the other, if Wheeler is removed we’d just get another clown. It might be better to leave Wheeler there now that he’s been chastened by the press and the citizens. Sorta like better the clown you know than risking a new unknown fool who’d clown around even worse…

The IRS agreed to pay $3.5 million to groups that were wronged by the intrusive inspections, and insists it’s made changes so that political targeting can’t occur in the future.

        Other than a crime which involves the element of intention, e.g., premeditated murder, there should be no such thing as hate speech, much less criminal hate speech. We as Americans are allowed to think or feel whatever we want.

        So what if we hate the person to whom or about whom we are speaking? Thought crimes are not illegal. Yet.

        Agree. She is talking about “hate crimes legislation”, which was the camel’s nose under the tent to eroding the first amendment.

        Short answer; if you murdersomeone, isn’t it pretty obvious you hated them?

        Does it really matter why?

        If it’s cause they are a jerk, you get one sentence, (for murder).

        But, if prosecutors can show its cause the victim is from a protected class, and you are prejudiced against that clasz, you get an additional sentence.

        So, clown in Charlestown gets double sentence (hate crime) whereas assists that tortured handicapped kid, and livestreamed it, while spewing anti-white epithets, and anti-trump retoric, does NOT get charged with “hate crime”,…WTF?

        It is my understanding that James Fields was forcibly routed into the Antifa contingent by “authorities”, into an intersection that was blocked, when Antifa started attacking his car. And it is a fact that the girl that died was not struck by his car, she died of a heart attack.

        @Sandra-VA………..I’ll defend the driver to a point. I think he did actually fear for his life as the protesters beat on his car and broke out the windows. He likely wanted to remove himself from that violence as fast as he could. Panic will do strange things to people when they have to make life or death decisions. And what his political beliefs are should be of no consequence at his trial.

    As we are getting closer to the election and everywhere is filled with discussions about waves of any color or lack thereof, I want to offer folks a little bit of my knowledge of CAMPAIGN mechanics not politics. I have worked as a volunteer, as a paid organizer, on steering committees, attended grassroots trainings for over 35 years. I was president of our county’s Young Dems in the early 80’s and organized campaigns for prolife organizations and Republican candidates only since the late 80’s, so take this for what it is worth to you.

    1) POLLS mean nothing when it comes to predicting elections. They ONLY can give you an indication of what the population being survey is thinking at a particular time. Never take ANY poll for what the people behind the poll say about it on face value. ALWAYS look at the process and demographics of who was polled and adjust your thinking accordingly. But NOTHING from it is going to predict the election results except a general trend.

    2) An important metric for election prediction, is the campaign organization on the ground for the race. Democrats have OWNED this for decades. GOP has NEVER really cared about it, at least in my lifetime. GOP was ALWAYS funded by Chamber folks and big donors and used GOTV efforts as window dressing to MARKET themselves as not being beholden to the chamber. Dems have ALWAYS had the unions, black churches and colleges and universities that are EASY to target, organize and GOTV. The advent of early voting ONLY gave them more time to GOTV their voters. PDJT’s appeal and ability to get his own workers in 2016 was unique to him but integrating them into the party apparatus will take time and has only begun.

    3) When there are special elections, turnout is HEAVILY skewed toward the following groups: 1) ANGRY voters; 2)Candidates with ORGANIZED, TRAINED AND EXPERIENCED GOTV workers; and 3) older voters who vote all the time out of civic duty, habit, or paying attention and being motivated.

    4) As the percentage of voter participation rises, this increase tends to help the GOP because it helps offset the lack of GOTV organization. However, having candidates that run on ISSUES THAT MATTER to the once-in-a-while voter of their own party will help motivate those voters and FIRE THEM UP to vote, increasing their participation.

    5) The history of the precinct, district, etc. is the best predictor of how the vote will go. SMART organizers work in their base precincts/districts with campaign organization and IGNORE those areas with voting histories that tend not to favor their candidates. Because the Dems underestimated PDJT’s appeal to working people in the mid-West, they didn’t organize as much there, Hillary basically ignored them until it was too late and PDJT worked his butt off when others called him a fool to do so.

    Take aways, or at least what I hope you consider:

    1) The special elections so far are a high water mark for the Dems, who were ANGRY, able to TARGET a bigger amount of what money they have to them because they were trying to create a narrative how there is a wave coming which will NOT be able to be duplicated to the same extent because they have to split it for more districts/states;

    2) Being focused on the MAGA agenda is what will FIRE UP the once-in-a-while GOP voter to turn out and I think we already see that is EXACTLY what PDJT is doing and planning; and

    3) Candidates on our side that have a unique ability to cut across the traditional voter preferences in their districts/states need resources early to put into place an organization as it is not likely that that area would not have much of one there….a GREAT example of that is John James in Michigan!

    I post this to encourage everyone here to not fall for the line of thinking that says we are SCREWED or that we are 100% VICTORIOUS…rather to ask everyone to focus your donations and time on those candidates for whom your help can get them across the finish line instead.

    God bless you all and lets all work smartly to MAGA!

    It’s a disgrace that Turkey is a member of NATO. I find it hilarious when Erdogan says the judiciary is independent when referring to the detained pastor. Coming from the guy who has jailed a bunch of judges during his rule.(before and after coup attempt)

    It’s interesting that liberals scream about the U.S abandoning NATO and not backing their allies against the Russian threat. Yet, the U.S has expanded sanctions against Russia under Trump while Germany pushes for a huge pipeline with Russia and Turkey buys missiles and is increasingly friendly with them.

    Of course even some Republicans today are attacking Trump with “Turkey is our ally and an important member of NATO.” They then have their usual meltdown about tariffs in general.

    Surprisingly, Lindsey Graham has been supportive of Trump and rightfully criticized Turkey. Lindsay has become a decent ally on some issues.,(for now anyway)

    Turkey’s currency hit a record low against the US dollar and euro early on Friday, falling around 7% against the dollar after initially losing 12%.

    Markets are worried about a deepening fallout between Washington and Ankara over the detention of US pastor Andrew Brunson on terror charges, as well as other issues.

      Last week I read an online article that said there had been a deal made between the U.S. and Turkey to release the imprisoned Pastor, that in order to get Turkey to release him the US convinced Jordan to release 2 of its prisoners that Turkey wanted set free. Reluctantly Jordan released them, then Turkey dropped it’s end of the bargain, only putting the Pastor on house arrest, but not letting him leave to return to the US. Jordan was extremely upset because the 2 they had released were really very bad people and our Pres. was extremely upset because by backing down it made the US’s word look bad to Jordan. I think this may be at the base of what’s happening to Turkey re the fall in value of their currency; the US no longer is going to allow other nations to jerk us around and keeping one’s word while creating bonds of trust with Jordan, Egypt, other ME nations is important for the success of what our VSG PDJT is putting together. I really wish that I had saved the link to the article.

    Maybe this should go in the other thread but I’m going to put this here…

    We have a very real “trust deficit” in this country and in our communities. We either reward liars with what they want, enable them to do more when it’s excused, and cower when faced with telling someone we care about the truth.

    It’s very disappointing. Not sure if it’s a current “thing” but it seems like lots of people will lie about stuff that doesn’t matter, stuff that does matter, and on anything and everything even if if they have nothing to gain. CYA.

    Telling the truth even when it may have negative consequences for a person takes courage and it’s called integrity. Integrity should be highly valued. I believe Americans are the most forgiving people on the planet. I believe many of us respect people who tell the truth.

    I feel sometimes I’ve been pretty naive and my honesty has probably cost me. But, can’t actually fix or address real problems without addressing the root of the problems and can’t get to those without telling the truth. Honest discussion. We don’t have this in our current political climate at all.

    I hope this next generation stops getting rewarded for lying and starts seeing the good of being honest. Maybe of we can do this politicians will stop lying to us and do what they’re supposed to do lol.

        Listening to Wilcow, a caller started by saying he was a black man from north carolina, who voted twice for zero, then after looking at every policy position, voted for Trump. He expressed his disgust for the racial division, said it’s no secret that staying in school, staying out of jail and getting a job will breed success. Went on to say his grandparents preached it all the time, it’s no big secret and not that hard to do. Both his parents were educators and he is a surgeon. He accurately stated there has never been a time in this country when opportunities were better for the black community. He said Harvard is GIVING educations away to young blacks. It’s there for the taking. He then said he could not care less what words Trump used, everyone uses it, especially blacks. He cares only about the actions, successes and new opportunities in his community. Imo, so rational. Similar to the women who didn’t bat an eye at the billie bush tape or stormy baloney.

    The Deep State and the left are intertwined with Silicon Valley. The CIA helped Google and Facebook get started. Why? To make it easier to spy on people. Over time, millions gravitated toward Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. Conservative and Libertarian voices became very strong and that alarmed the Deep State. So they began demonetizing conservatives. Then they shadow-banned them. Now they are deleting them outright.”

      Social media was competing with other media which was already controlled. The social media wars developed and while none in government cared to notice, Google and Facebook and Twitter kept buying and shutting down the competition. There are countless non-compete agreements out there still active to prevent anyone with knowledge of how to set up competing internet media companies from using their knowledge and skill from starting something new.

      People keep saying that there should be competing platforms without knowing the reason there are none today. What gets in the way? Patents on software for starters. Patents on “systems” for another. Non-compete agreements as another, and on and on. When all of this was going on, “social media” wasn’t considered to be anything “important.” And now that it’s too late, people are waking up to that fact.

      Meanwhile, people like Dan Bongino are correct to say that trying to get government regulation on these companies is a trap. On the other hand, I think a RICO case could be made against these companies where it comes to their specific attempts to change our elections. There can be no mistake these companies are providing a very real benefit to one party at the expense of another party. That is a very real problem.

      In this image from the article, it says “0” is the number denied for one type of access and the line below it is “0” for another type of access. But the two combined is “8.” There are some lies in there because 0 + 0 is not 8 unless you put one 0 on top of another 0.

      Think about why they would not report precise numbers? The words “can not confirm or deny” come to mind.

        Read the footnote for #1 – Requests for combined authority to conduct electronic surveillance under 50 USC 1805 & 1824, respectively, are included in this row and are not separately reflected in the rows addressing request for authority to conduct electronic surveillance (Section 1805) and physical search (Section 1824) above.

        I interpret that to mean that combined 1805 & 1824 are a separate line item from the singular type of requests.

    • Let me interject a question here as it’s a current situation.

      Where in the Constitution is there authority for the judiciary to address the subject of “immigration”. The power to address that subject was given to Congress, not the judiciary. See Article III, Section 2 for the list of the only case federal courts may hear. Count the ten of them.

      I love the President, but he has the absolute constitutional, lawful, moral authority to tell the judge to go hug a tree and has not done it. Does Sessions not know this simple constitutional principle? Does the President not know it?

    I remember when President Trump was telling us that he was going to form an administration of “killers” and I couldn’t fully comprehend what he meant. I knew he was serious, I just couldn’t see Steven Mnuchin and in particular Wilbur as “killers”.

    Guerilla Street Artists Defend Trump’s Hollywood Star; Issue Warning To Liberal “Resistors”

    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-08-10/guerilla-street-artists-defend-trumps-hollywood-star-issue-stark-warning-liberal

    …the street artists, operating under the name “The Faction,” are “100% pro-individualism and meritocracy and 100% anti-identity politics.”

    They provided TGP with the following statement:

    In Donald Trump’s “The Art of the Deal” the President instructs that if someone f*cks you over, you have to f*ck them back twice as hard. Because we Russian bots are learning machines, though, we may have taken it to the extreme. Rip up the President’s Walk Of Fame star or try to have it removed – like you’re the Mayor of West Hollywood or something — and thirty more will pop up.

    “Strike me down and I will become more powerful than you could ever imagine” Trump tapped into his typewriter when he wrote Star Wars. We are seeing his prophetic words play out as we speak. Or did you SpaceForce deniers think that movie was fiction? When are you going to realize that you’ve sided with the Empire?

    Keep it up, “Resistors”. We’re going to ride your baby-tantrum tactics all the way to victory in 2020 and beyond. Keep it up, “Resistors”. And your bathroom will be tiled with Trump Stars by the time he boards Marine One on January 20, 2025.

    The idiots pick-axing Trump’s star on the Walk of Fame are the same as the Whining Acostas and High-Pitch Stelters of the fake media. They don’t understand that the Real Trump has infected America with winning fever, and like his star has infected the Walk of Fame — literally massing around and isolating cancerous stars like Blubbering Rob Reiner and Crying Jimmy Kimmel — the fever is spreading.

    We are The Faction.”

    As the Turkish currency impact on the Euro Banks emerged, one has to wonder if the President didn’t do the financial world a favor by exposing just how rickety the Euro Banks have become, as Turkey wobbles.

        As Sundance correctly noted in his recent Winning is winning” post re: the lastest GOP Ad:

        “David Mamet had a famous saying, essentially: …‘in order for genuine democrats to continue their illogical belief systems they have to pretend not to know a lot of things’… By pretending ‘not to know’ there is no guilt, no actual connection to conscience; denial of truth allows easier trespass. The Democrat ideology depends on our willingness to accept their false presentations; and our reconciliation toward their intent.”
