44 The first transaction from Hillary for America to Hillary Rodham Clinton came on April 13, 2015 in the amount of $74,042. This transaction was filed under 'Payroll Benefits' with a separate payment of $1,488 for 'Employee Benefits' that same day, according to FEC filings. On April 14, just one day later, $744 went to Clinton marked as employee benefits.

The next in a series of payments to Clinton did not occur until later in the year.

In November 2015, when transactions resumed to Clinton, she pulled in a total of $32,811 from two separate payments. In December, another $56,514 was made to her name. In January 2016, $88,878 more was given. All told, payroll and benefits transactions to Clinton have totaled $254,447 since the launch of her campaign.

114 So, I didn't watch the debate last night but couldn't resist a few minutes of radio Beck this morning. Beck is railing on about how Donald was asked if he would give an order to kill all the families of the 9/11 hijackers, would he expect his order to be obeyed by the military.

1. Was this actually a question in the debate?
2. Did Donald actually say that yes, his orders WOULD be obeyed.

124 Lawmakers and environmental activists have demanded that Exxon be prosecuted for funding groups skeptical of the science behind man-made global warming. These groups have argued the government should prosecute fossil fuel companies and global warming skeptics under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) - a law created to pursue the mafia and other crime syndicates.

I guess I would want to hear the context in which this question was asked. Since these debates are nothing but Jeopardy on steriods, all planned in advance to crash the un PC candidates, I'd want to know what he was actually being asked.

The CNN townhalls are so much better than these stupid debates. A question is asked and the candidate gets to talk at length to answer it.

Donald is not good in debates. Period. In fact, he's awful. I'm not sold on him, but I'm having a hard time with Beck's assertion that Trump is a cold blooded murderer.
One of our problems with the way we have fought in Afghanistan and currently in Iraq is the ROE. The fact that any civilian casualty is unacceptable is not a way to win a war.
Beck had military calling in saying they would disobey those orders, one guy said if Trump gets in , he's resigning his commission.

Posted by: Jen the original at March 04, 2016 11:57 AM (dErES)

189 So, I didn't watch the debate last night but couldn't resist a few minutes of radio Beck this morning. Beck is railing on about how Donald was asked if he would give an order to kill all the families of the 9/11 hijackers, would he expect his order to be obeyed by the military.

1. Was this actually a question in the debate?
2. Did Donald actually say that yes, his orders WOULD be obeyed.

-
Kind of. It was a typical Turnip non-answer that could be interpreted that way by those so inclined.

193 Arnold Schwarzenegger is the governor of California. There's a perfectly ordinary English sentence. How did that happen!? Do you know how that happened? 'Cause I'll tell you. Do you know how he got into that position? He got there... by lifting things. Now, you and me, we avoid lifting things; It's unpleasant. Especially heavy things. Even a five-year-old child knows this. He'll go "No, ha ha, fuck it, no, I'll go and stick Lego up my arse, I'm not doing that, no no." He took a different approach. He lifted the heavy- and you know, you lift something if you have to. Piano falls on granny, you lift the piano... 'cause Granny has mixed feelings about the whole situation. Sunday lunch continues. He didn't do any of that. He went over to the heavy thing, and lifted it, and put it back down and didn't move it anywhere... and then he did it again, hundreds of times, and he said to people who stopped to observe this aberrant behaviour, "Look how good I am... at lifting the heavy thing, in my underpants." Now that may seem a little dim. But it was they who said "You're the man. You're the one we want to deal with immigration, and water rates, and taxes, and all that kinda shit." But wait - what we need to know is, how bad was his predecessor at that job? This must've been someone who came to work covered in children's blood every morning.

That is not exactly what he said. I get your point, but still. Trumps biggest asset is his biggest problem also.
His asset is he says things most politicians would not say, as in loosening the ROEs. His biggest problem is he says things other politicians would not say because they would have a filter between their brain and mouth.

It would not take TOO much more thought to say something like "Right now we're playing at war, we have an unserious President and a bunch of careerist sail-trimmers running the military. We're gonna have to accept that killing ISIS and other enemies in real numbers means accepting a whole lot more collateral damage, and we're going to need civilian and military leadership that acknowledges this."

One of our problems with the way we have fought in Afghanistan and currently in Iraq is the ROE. The fact that any civilian casualty is unacceptable is not a way to win a war.

Also, not calling out the enemy when they purposefully put their operations in civilian areas is just plain weakness. That right there was a missed opportunity to turn public opinion against the goatfux, one that was missed on purpose.

But that's what happens in a feminized oligarchy such as we have in DC these days. There is no will to win, we're just as bad as who we fight, we started all the conflicts everywhere because colonialist, and besides, we have no enemies, they just need a hug.

I recall how Russia dealt with a muzzie hostage situation some time ago. They kidnapped a family member of one of the hostage-takers and started sending various parts to them.

The hostages were released rather quickly.

A lot of this bullshit with terrorists will only be solved by becoming just as ruthless, if not moreso, than they are. They appreciate and will back down to strength.

The pussies we have in DC now cannot fathom that rather simple aspect of muz society.

Trouble is he's already said that he was going to tell the military to kill the wives and children of terrorists. Now that may be pleasing to hear on one level but it is not something you expect to hear from the leader of the free world because it is illegal.

I just don't get why Trump supporters seem to think there is a whole separate set of rules for Trump. Yes, he's gotten away with being wild and crazy and basically having no plan on anything that he won't change at the drop of a hat but how long do you think this will last? Why is it ok for Trump to say he is changing his written in stone immigration plans on the fly when you would never let another candidate get away with that? Why is it ok for Trump to talk about the size of his dick? Why is it ok for him to say crazy ass shit about how he would prosecute a war?

342 "I'm changing that. We'll have some H-1B visas." torque'

He and Cruz were pro H-*B just a few months ago, till the story of Disney forced workers to train their replacements. He still says none of that.

He must have made some deal that there will be some. His site even before had said there would be some temporary workers, but with stipulations, like that they face fines for overstaying. But he said last night he changed.

Trump is self funding, but he might make some deal if these establishment/corporation guys are ready to dump $70 million into Florida advertising. Trump just put ONE million into Florida ads, and probably can't match half that. That's my best guess ... why else would he flip ... even subtly?

The other part is maybe they threatened to leak the NYTimes off the record stuff. He is still the only nationalist that talks of America First, since Cruz is weak on the TPP. "They" don't want Cruz or Trump, but only have to attack Trump.

Because before we can ever have a constructive debate on policy we need to have so much as a sliver of hope that any changed policy, on any issue can actually be implemented, and in order to do THAT we have to remove the slugs, the barnacles, the parasites in power, and to do THAT we need a consensus candidate who does not hail from either party, and to win a general election THAT CANDIDATE is going to need to be pigheaded, egotistical, and brash enough to weather the slings and arrows of every established institution in the United States.

We know man. We know. I am not happy about it. But Trump winning is a prerequisite for real change.

This has been explained ad infinitum and ace gets it and also isn't happy about it but there isn't another alternative.

Actually, ace has recently placed Trump as his 5th choice. Of course that was before Carson dropped out so he probably has moved up a notch. But that's irrelevant.

There is absolutely zero proof, zilch, nada, that Trump would be able to get anything through Congress. He has no experience working in government where he doesn't get to just give orders. Given that he seems to have no real core principles it seems more likely he would do their bidding rather than the other way around.

Of course there are alternatives. Three of them were on that stage last night. Cruz is a much more palatable choice. At least I am reasonably sure where he stands on the issues and I don't have to worry about him talking about his dick.

War is hell, sheer hell, and the path that gets it over with the most quickly and most violently is the most humane and decent one. Maybe that's how you have to define it, not certain tactics or rules of engagement, but how quickly you get it over with and how totally you defeat the evil that forced you to take this action.

I think that was accurate: it's 6 months when the 2 planets are at closest approach. It's much longer when on opposite sides of the Sun. Also, the rescue ship was on its way back to Earth when news of his survival hit. So going the rest of the way back to Earth, slingshot-ting around and going back to Mars would take forever.

498 Gingrich expresses the hope Trump voters see, as the globalists line up against him. Despite all the attacks on Trump supporters, I'd think Gingrich and Sessions and Giuliani and others would at least get the Trump haters to consider another angle. Globalists vs America First. Global Diversity vs National Heritage.

Gingrich this morning on FOX, on the establishment attacking Trump:

"There are two things going on here that are historic and that are very very powerful. One is about raw power. The old establishment, personified by Romney yesterday, is appalled that Trump is an outsider that is putting together a new majority and doing it, really outside their world and he is a direct threat to a power structure that has dominated the Republican party for most of the last fifty years.

So that's about power. There's a second thing going on though.

Trump represents a very real change. He is the most anti-left candidate in modern times. He is the most anti political correct candidate in modern times. He is very ruthless about stupidity in operational terms. And he is an American nationalist.

Well if you're part of the old order part of the people who since World War 2 have built this worldwide financial system etcetera, Trump is a genuine serious policy threat to the world you live in, and that's an authentic real reaction to the rise of Donald Trump."

President OM would instruct Attorney General Ann Coulter to file a RICO lawsuit against the Democratic Party.


I've been watching a show on Netflix called "The American Mafia" which is terrific - lots of interviews with actual mobsters, the cops and prosecutors that took them down (Giuliani, etc) and info. But they keep emphasizing how the Mafia was the first criminal organization in America to ever so totally infiltrate the cultural, legal, and political institutions of America.

And I keep thinking about how now that so totally applies to the Democratic Party. They are so blatantly corrupt, so clearly unlawful, and so completely rooted in the systems and structures of power, only a RICO-type investigation could possibly get to them.

But I too think RICO is basically illegal and wrong. Holding someone guilty for what an employee does is just not right no matter how guilty you think they are.

513 Official Unemployment you say?

"The Census employee caught faking the results is Julius Buckmon, according to confidential Census documents obtained by The Post. Buckmon told me in an interview this past weekend that he was told to make up information by higher-ups at Census.

Ironically, it was Labor's demanding standards that left the door open to manipulation.

Labor requires Census to achieve a 90 percent success rate on its interviews - meaning it needed to reach 9 out of 10 households targeted and report back on their jobs status.

Census currently has six regions from which surveys are conducted. The New York and Philadelphia regions, I'm told, had been coming up short of the 90 percent.

Philadelphia filled the gap with fake interviews."

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at March 04, 2016 12:53 PM


I'm not at all opposed to your thoughts here, but will say the idea of "shutting down churches" would push us farther down a very slippery slope.

You want to close them for violating existing laws? Groovy, except that would also currently include "hate crime" laws and G*d knows what else. Think about that.

No, a Good President wouldn't do that. But what about a Crazy-Ass Liberal president? The chances that we will always -- or, it sometimes seems, ever -- have a president who impartially obeys and enforces the law (or picks people who will do so) looks remote.

Christopher

Terrorist--first they are a very small group of people and they are not beholding to an electorate or a nation state framework--or even a territory. Hell they kill more Muslims than anyone else. Bomb the crap out of a territory? They simply move.

The aspect that makes them extremely successful is their religious extremism which obviously gives them the value of not fearing death as much but it also creates a very different norm for the radical extremists as a whole--they do not think of time in the same intervals as we do. So when we think of a struggle or war being long because it lasts for ten years--they think nothing of a struggle lasting over fifty years because their goal is the ultimate caliphate. The conflict with Israel is an example of this.

555 Terrorist--first they are a very small group of people and they are not beholding to an electorate or a nation state framework--or even a territory. Hell they kill more Muslims than anyone else. Bomb the crap out of a territory? They simply move.

President Bush showed how its done, then backed off, and we got betrayed by the left. But he hit them hard where they hid, crushed their finances, cut off their supply lines, broke the places they were protected, and destroyed the places they lived, trained, and hid.

For crying out loud, its not like we don't know where IS is, they have a city, they do huge parades in the desert.

557 Re; RICO-- you don't always even need RICO, if you have a conspiracy. Each member of the conspiracy can be held accountable/liable for actions of other conspirators.

Ideally you use that as leverage on the small fish to get at the medium and big fish, but even if you can't, if you make Small Fish an undesirable job (workplace hazards, life expectancy, lead poisoning, etc.), the medium fish and big fish have a tougher time.

Well get this when ISIS was in Iraq we could bomb them. They gained control of an oil field in Iraq. There was a highway running between Iraq and Syria and as soon as they crossed over into Syria they could not be pursued. The nation state issue again. Oil trucks were going back and forth and supplying ISIS in Syria--weird problem is rebels were also getting oil from the ISIS held oil field in Iraq. It took an extremely long time to get the lawyer debate club in chief to bomb this highway. And obama required that not one civilian truck driver die. Pamphlets pre-warning about the bombing had to be dropped. ( I'm not sure for how long--want to say three days.)

647 "It took an extremely long time to get the lawyer debate club in chief
to bomb this highway. And obama required that not one civilian truck
driver die. Pamphlets pre-warning about the bombing had to be dropped.
( I'm not sure for how long--want to say three days.)"

Putin just went ahead and hit the oil truck convoys with cluster munitions. Giving no advance warning of his intentions.

Hundreds of oil truck drivers were burned alive or shredded by shrapnel.

By some amazing coincidence, it was right around this time that the Islamic State started having trouble recruiting drivers for oil trucks.

654 Your average Briton knows nothing about the candidates. They want Hillary because they perceive her to be a Socialist and know that she was Bill's wife, and he American SOS. I mentioned the campaign to my English BIL and he said, "Donald Trump is running for President?" and he laughed. Trump, of course, he had heard of. I said, "I support Ted Cruz" and he said "Who?" That was two months ago; He might be better informed now, but not necessarily.

686 638 Europeans are confused why anyone would think ill of Bernie Sanders or President Obama. They are horrified of Donald Trump, not scared but think he's the worst human on earth, like a cross between a used car salesman, a sleazy defense attorney, and a plate of 3-day-old green baby poop.

They don't know why. They just are sure he's everything bad that they imagine without specifics or examples.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at March 04, 2016 01:36 PM (39g3+)

They seem to hate him because he's anti-immigration (or pretended to be). There are lots of reasons to dislike Trump but it's his perceived "racism" that bothers them.

The Angela Merkels of Europe - I can understand why he horrifies them. But ordinary folks who are concerned about the immigrants in their own countries and yet deride Trump for being "racist" are - well, stupid. And hypocritical, but that's nothing new for the Euros.

724 I like to compare the USA to a sleeping dragon in the cave near the village for European perspective. They like the dragon because his being there scares off invaders and troublemakers, but they are afraid of it waking up, too. If something pokes the dragon and rouses it, the villagers all hide and hate the dragon because they are sure it will attack them, too, even though it never has and protects them. They love and appreciate the dragon even while hating it for making them feel so small and afraid.

Donald Trump talking up the USA makes them feel small and resentful. They like Obama's approach of continually humiliating and downplaying the country. For Europeans, a factual statement about the USA like "most powerful army" or being patriotic is arrogant. Not because it is objectively arrogant, but because it reminds them that they are only Europe.

Bad taste coupled with a puritanical 70's feminist belief that trying to make yourself attractive meant you were not a Serious Feminist.

That's because you're misreading the nature of his support. A lot of it is not about Trump, but the reaction our enemies have to him. So it doesn't matter if he performs poorly in debates because it's clear he's still causing the right heads to explode.

To the extent positions matter, I'm willing to assume he's going to delegate, once in office, to whoever is writing the position papers on his website. If not, eh, I wind up with the same disappointment I always get from voting republican.

819 OJ is clearly an idiot but I think it's largely accepted that he ditched the incriminating evidence at LAX or gave it to AC to dispose of. To keep it buried even after you've been acquitted instead of tossing it in the garbage and letting it end up in the dump doesn't make sense.

Hacking your wife's head off then driving slowly down the freeway in a white SUV doesn't make sense either. OJ doesn't make sense.

860 Donald Trump talking up the USA makes them feel small and resentful. They like Obama's approach of continually humiliating and downplaying the country. For Europeans, a factual statement about the USA like "most powerful army" or being patriotic is arrogant. Not because it is objectively arrogant, but because it reminds them that they are only Europe.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at March 04, 2016 01:53 PM (39g3+)

That's a very good take, I think.

I would add that the French, Germans and Brits also remember that they were once the big dogs on the block, feared and respected, while America was still a faraway backwater. (Those feelings must be complicated by the uncomfortable fact that both the Germans and the British feel guilty about how they behaved when they were the big dogs on the block. The last time France was the preeminent power in Europe, Beethoven was the hottest composer around, and I don't think they feel much guilt over Napoleon's wars. They do feel a sense of lost greatness.)

862 Arson Wells



While the United States is unlikely to adopt the most cold blooded Russian practices such as torturing the relatives of terrorists, after Barack Obama threw away the military victory in Irr, the American people are not going to accept a lot of American casualties in order to minimize collateral damage or civilian casualties among foreigners with hostile cultures and revolting practices.


What this means is that when our enemies hide among civilians we will kill them anyway and bad luck to the civilians in the way. When we do not have precise information that allows us to kill them with a minimum of force, we will use more powerful weapons that will kill everybody in the area we can narrow the location down to and not worry about it.


The fact is that this is pretty much our only choice given the way Democrats consistently behave. I can certainly understand that military professionals don't like it. They are always prepared to fight the last war but as the whole experience in Iraq demonstrated, winning a war does not accomplish much when the opposition party will always throw it away.


On the other hand, we can continue to kill foreigners from the sky forever without rousing the ire or even the attention of the American public.

863 True the primary voting has had a significant uptick, but given the behavior of his base--as in they seem to be unaffected by pivots in his position--it looks a lot like a cult of personality and it would be hard to hang on to Trump's voters without Trump. In my opinion.

Posted by: Namaste at March 04, 2016 01:59 PM (mcm0N)


You make the mistake of thinking that Trump's supporters are mesmerized by his personality and scintillating rhetoric. No, he is simply the bomb they have chosen to throw at the GOPe.


And if, by some fluke, he becomes President, he can't possibly be worse than the present Occupant, simply because he doesn't hate America.
