    If Obama pardoned people in his administration before leaving office, do those documents have to filed some where, like you have to file a deed or a will ? Or can people just pull them out as needed ?

  10. Democrats to regain House, Republicans will hold Senate says mid-term report dated yesterday.

    If the mid-term election were held today, the Democrats will regain control of the House of Representatives. Cook Political Reports also predicts the Republicans will retain control of the Senate.

    Cook said they are “certain” that the Republicans will retain at least 50 of the 100 Senate seats. Since the Vice President can vote in the event of a tie, the Republicans will hold the Senate.



    • smartyjones1 says:

      Cook is a report that is cooked for the Rats and it will be among another of many pollsters who will make excuses why they got it wrong after the election.

      The Senate races are trending for a pickup of 4-6 and there may be a surprise or two higher.

      The US Congress is a bigger pot of stew but my gut says there will be no ratward wave. In fact, it will be an inconsequential impact there so the Republicans will IMHO not see loss of control there either.

        I have been following political pundit predictions and poll data closely since 2016.

        Unfortunately the one thing that is apparent is that you CAN NOT trust or rely on poll data, and certainly NOT Fake News pundits and “experts”

        I don’t KNOW if the DIMS will take the House (I hope not) but I DO NOT see a blue wave coming even in polls as reported. There is no doubt that polls always “get it wrong” by understating the results for Republican. Either they are simply incapable of measuring/predicting election results, or they are BIASED and deliberately mis-informing. Since the “error” is always in one direction I have no doubt that at least some of it is DELIBERATE

      Sounds like “No path to 218” for GOP Congress

      Remember leading up to 2016 Presidential election “no path to 273”?

      We’ll see 🙂

      Number one, the elections are not held today, so the whole speculation is absurd.
      Number two, according to the same geniuses, Hillary won with a landslide.

  11. Another IMMIGRANT INVASION incoming..
    Honduran migrant group treks north as U.S. calls for tighter borders

    SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras (Reuters) – More than 1,000 people, including families and women carrying babies, set off from Honduras toward the United States on Saturday, days after the United States urged Honduras’ president to halt mass migration.
    Recent attempts at group crossings from Central America to the United States have tested U.S. President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” stance on illegal immigration, as people fleeing violence and poverty defy threats of deportation.

    “I believe we’ll get to the United States. There’s no work in Honduras, and you live in fear that they’re going to kill you or your children,” said Fanny Barahona, 35, an unemployed teacher who walked with her nine-year-old son and carried a two-year-old daughter.

        Repub district won 58 to 37 in 2016 so really safe. District covers most of the northen part of the State. In fact you could drop a nuke between Elko and Reno and the death toll may hit 50. My apologies to the rattlesnakes.

        Turn out will have to come from Reno, Idaho and Utah.

          Wow, I have some idea about Elko, a friend who lives in Reno grew up there and talks about it when we get together. A small town, closer to Salt Lake City than Reno, 230 vs. 290 miles. Boise ID is 240 miles north. The contiguous area in SE Oregon is very sparsely populated.

          So yeah, not much nearby population to draw from, interesting to see how it turns out. Had I known a few weeks ago, I would have organized a trip down there, it would be a blast. My friends are PT supporters too.

      KAC is usually the one who gives POTUS his marching orders when it comes to locations. She is not someone I would question on campaign strategy.


    • sunnydaze says:

      Just 3 hours to Salt Lake and probably less tp Boise and Twin Falls.

      A 3 hour ride out there is Literally.Nothing.

      Good location to get folks in from different states.

      Too bad not Reno, that would draw from CA.

      Normally not a fan of rap, but I really enjoyed this periscope.

      Gotta look into ye a little more. He has a familiar wavelength.


    • mr.piddles says:

      See now MSM will zero in on “mind control” terminology and denigrate him for “wacko-talk”… he’s crazy and he’s talking about crazy stuff. If you listen to the whole thing, and don’t take anything out of context he has a simple message: social media is corrosive, get off social media, free your mind. It’s wise advice, and advice shared by many a psychologist, particularly when it comes to young people.

      I just realized something… his stream of conscience “ramblings” are similar to how rap music is constructed and presented. Little nuggets of thought, sometimes (seemingly) disconnected, in rapid succession, but altogether presenting an overall message. Message could be just a disposable thing like “partying with hoes”, or it could be something more meaningful like talking about social problems. Slam poetry, similar thing. Just a thought.

    The RCP Generic Congress poll average today is D+6.9% .. said to indicate a “blue wave”
    (Note: inflated by Reuters and CNN polls)

    On this date in 2016 RCP Average was D+6.2%…. the REAL election result was R+1.1% (a real red wave)

    Just sayin’

    Another good one, may have been posted already. Sounds like some beer and doobies might be in play here, but don’t judge this book by its cover… he makes some cogent points, and ties a lot of things together coherently.

    Second half is a MSM rant. Even hits FOX hard. **Another** MSM rant, like the last one I linked to. The other woman has PhD. I’m going to go out on a limb and assume this guy does not have a PhD. Folks of all types get it, they know the score.

    “Communism? Open borders? Are these the things I really stand for?”

    (warning: some salty language in second half)
