Were these the same pollsters that all said Hillary was going to destroy Trump in 2016 ???
Well, in fairness, the Donks had their cheating engine running pretty hot, so it was a reasonable assumption.

Since, they've turbocharged that engine, adding nifty new components like "ballot harvesting" and "automatic voter registration" so 2020 will be interesting.

Do they really think people believe polls anymore? They got it so wrong in 2016 and now they’re out polling again. Who believes them? I don’t think the dems believe them anymore.

Swalwell: Trump So Alienating Our Allies They Might Not Help Us If America Is Attacked | Breitbart


Swalwell said, “We need friends in the world. Today, if there was to be an attack on America or one of the America’s interesting, I’m not sure we would have the same friends across the world lining up to go to conflict or to help defend the United States. The Danish, for example, they went with us into the last two conflicts. Whether you agreed with the conflicts or not, in Iraq and Afghanistan, they served side by side with American soldiers. We continue to alienate our friends. Also, as you look at the programs in Europe, where they take care of people through health care, education, access to skills, they don’t spend as much on defense. I think it’s an opportunity for us to realize we can have strength through partnerships, spend less on defense at home. But if he’s going to alienate us, we’ll have to spend more on our national defense, and that’s at the cost of education and health care.”



I totally take advice from a Congress crook that wants to nuke law abiding gun owners.

California board rebrands 'convicted felon' as 'justice involved person'



According to a report from Fox News, a San Francisco board voted to sanitize legal verbiage to get rid of words such as "offender," "addict," and "convicted felon."

Officials said the new language is meant to help change people's views about those who commit crimes.

The San Francisco Chronicle wrote that anyone who was convicted of a crime in the past or an offender released from custody will now be known as a "formerly incarcerated person," or a "justice-involved person" or just a "returning resident."

“We don’t want people to be forever labeled for the worst things that they have done,” Supervisor Matt Haney told the newspaper. “We want them ultimately to become contributing citizens, and referring to them as felons is like a scarlet letter that they can never get away from.”

The Dictrict Attorney's Office endorsed the measure.



More PC left Lunacy...Amazing really..Not!

Well, that splat sound I just heard was the S hitting TF.

President Trump has engaged Emperor mode.

"Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing your companies HOME and making your products in the USA."

"...are hereby ordered..."

Be careful what you wish for, I guess.

"order" bad wording? I dont think there is any threat of punishment for not following "orders" except self-imposed for not adapting to a changing business environment.

what I wish for? less to no trade deficit with china, no ip theft (at least in the wide open, flaunted, throw it in our faces type), better human rights and living conditions in china because if it was half as good as we have it here we wouldn't be purchasing anything from them in the first place. I dont want that ant farm of a country having any influence over us whatsoever. hopefully this is moving that direction. everyone likes human rights, pollution controls and self reliance right? f china

The China trade war was initially about leveling the tariff playing field with China, a goal I support. Now we're moving toward economic isolation, a nonsensical goal for an economy the size of China's.

Knowing Trump, we're now going to see an announcement of higher tariffs this afternoon. Even if Trump is ultimately successful in building a trade wall between the USA and China, the economic pain of making that happen quickly will be yuuge.

May you live in interesting times.

What makes you think China can't? The Chinese were eating the bark off trees and each other's children to survive only 60 years ago.

it was a fast way to say - they have more to lose. just my opinion. f em. they can go back to eating bark. do you think that's where we would be going? personally, in my uneducated opinion, I dont think so. not for a second. we built china. they didn't build us

added- they're not the only game in town either. plenty of shithole countries in the world who would gladly take our money, pay their people nothing, force them to work in awful conditions and pollute the f out of everything around them

Seriously. China is an authoritarian one-party state. Trump has an election in 1 year's time. Who's more vulnerable to a backlash due to a plunging economy?

In principle I agree with you 100%.

In practice this is the reality.

on one hand we all criticize politicians of only being able to think in 4 year (+/- depending on office) increments for re election purposes. If we can pull of a China deal and slap them in the dick for abusing our trade relationship (and many other issues), that demonstrates a level of fearlessness on Trumps part. success for our country first and reelection will follow

Trump took his level of insanity to an all-time low today. Megalomania and Narcissism is one powerful cocktail. SPY will be testing 235 shortly.

I thought President Trump might go straight to 50% this afternoon. A 30% tariff is still within the realm of business as usual.

To force manufacturing of commodity products back to the USA would require in the region of a 100% tariff imho.

Before Obama we had:

No Isis
No BLM
No Antifa
No war on police
No NFL Kneeling
No bans on Christianity in public schools
No transvestites lecturing kindergarten children on gender ideology
No bathroom confusion
No race riots
No destruction of historical monuments & military cemeteries .
No giving drivers licenses to illegal aliens
No stripping veterans of 6 billion dollars & allocating it all to illegals
No blocking freeways
No celebrating & cheering when America is criticized
No apology tours

By the way what plunging economy? Looks just fine to me. If people are broke they certinly have a funny way of showing it..
