7 This will mark at least the 40th day in a row that somebody I encounter on the internet will invoke the name of Hitler when discussing Trump or Cruz. The Bernie fans are now saying that Cruz is even more evil than Trump, who is supposed to be worse than Hitler in their eyes.

28 There is no path to victory for Rubio.
Not since Super Tuesday, maybe even before.

He remains in the race for one reason and one reason only: To salve the vanity of the elite, the out-of-touch elite that refuse to see a base that hates amnesty.

So, he remains to give them a false hope their dream of destroying the middle class can still happen.

The brief, submitted Tuesday, was spearheaded by the lobbying group Fwd.us, which was founded by Zuckerberg and others to fight for immigration reform.

Because a geek who never gadiated College, never did a day of physical labor in his life, has armed body guards, and lives behind a big Wall of his own is the go to guy on this subject?

Rubio and Kasich are there to deny Trump or Cruz the magic 1,237 and then anoint the "sane" ticket of Mitt/Mario.

I think at some point before the convention, Trump and Cruz are going to have to unite. We'll see Trump's true colors. If he really wants to take down the GOP-e, he'll swallow his pride and select Cruz as veep if he is on top in the count.

45 This is the American student who was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist on a knife rampage in Tel Aviv before he was shot dead by police.

Taylor Force, 29, of Lubbock, Texas, was attacked along a boardwalk near a beach in the Jaffa area popular with tourists.

Up to 12 others were wounded, with four reported to be in a serious condition, according to ambulance service officials.

Force, a student at Vanderbilt University's Owen Graduate School of Management, was in Israel on a school trip with several other students and staff at the time of the attack.


horrible

I used to think Israel was one of the safest places on the planet to travel to.

Kyle Odom is crazy as a loon. He had no connection to the church. Since it is not against the law to shoot Martians, he'll probably be found too insane to prosecute. He sent a bunch of blank papers to media titled: The Truth About Kyle Odom. He was last seen driving off on Sunday afternoon and managed to get to DC. That's some driving! Happy that the good reverend is alive and hopefully will recover. He will have permanent damage.

77 also a good read over at pjmedia, but these two little sentences were new, in Roger Simon's new piece

GOP Should Use Trump, Not Abuse Trump

What most surprises me, however, is the approach taken to Trump by his enemies, those known under the rubric #NeverTrump and those better heeled who have blown millions on nauseating and evidently useless attack ads painting Donald as Mussolini with a bad haircut. For a group of smart people, in some cases very smart, they seem to have skipped Psychology 101 in college, making them curiously oblivious to the blowback from their assaults. Or maybe, more simply, they have forgotten what we all learned in the school yard in the second grade -- if you can't lick em, join 'em. ( Personally, I find it hard to resist someone who finally spoke a truth at that press conference that the media seems deliberately to have ignored all year: "I don't think there is such a thing as an establishment." There isn't -- and who would want one?)

Question:
What happens when congress refuses to allocate the funds to build the wall?
Trump will barely be able to build a friggin sandwich with the likes of those people. - JJ Sefton


This is my problem with Cruz. Congress is an ocean and Cruz is a fish. Or maybe a shark.

Anyway, he voted for Obama's fckued up Iran deal claiming that he had to pass it in order to stop it or some such double talk.

Don't get me wrong , I think that he may well be the most reliably conservative in his professed 'idealology' (as far as a politician's idealism goes). He knows his Constitution and projects an image of America that was. But I fully expect that the Kabuki will begin as soon as his presidency begins* "damned obstructionists, I tried to fix immigration , I really did" blah blah blah.

Trump is a complete unknown. No one knows what the hell he will do . Maybe not even him. But that unknown is exactly the factor which scares the hell out of the Establishment goons. And that makes me happy.



* I do not believe that Cruz can beat Hillary on his own , ie without Trump.

82 I, for one, am looking forward to another surge of Central American youths in our already overcrowded elementary school which absolutely overflowing with the benefits of diversity. We received at least couple dozen of the little dears last year who just blend right in (not widely known but I've grilled my kids and put some numbers of my own together that are at least as accurate as the 11 million illegals number). Ironically, our district is desperately putting together a plan to spread the joys of diversity to surrounding districts, who are already experiencing the benefits from open borders and surprisingly don't want more. In any case, for our school any reduction in trailers will be temporary and short lived as it is discovered so many Central American youths have relatives they need to be re-unified with in our district. Good times and getting better.

And the MSM scratches it's head and wonders,"Why are Americans angry?"

other info about the obamacare fines over at cnsnews


H&R Block said that means an uninsured family of four earning $60,000 will face a penalty of $975 for this year, compared with about $400 for 2015. Next year, that same hypothetical family would face a penalty of $2,000 at tax time.

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/health-law-fines-double-many-uninsured-tax-time

this is another reason why it is critical to get a conservative in the WH. Obamacare will implode, and we need to be ready to replace it, or optimally, preempt the crash and make a smooth transition to sanity.

I'm pretty sure that was a sarcastic rejoinder to Ace' s post last night where he basically said that a significant number of Trump supporters in Idaho were white supremacists.
Then he edited it out if the post, so it's confusing. But the thread was in uproar.

Btw, how's the website going?

Posted by: votermom at March 09, 2016 08:35 AM (cbfNE)

121 Our beloved Washington Nearsider is not able to post from work. He asks teh Horde to consider this:

Many of you aware that my brother-in-law has been beating the shit out
of his wife (my wife's twin sister) for twenty years, and his kids for
at least five. Many of you are also aware that he is armed, unstable
and easily provoked. We are all half-expecting the police to call and
notify us that he has killed her, the kids and himself. Most of you
have asked me some version of the 'do you need a bat or a shovel?'
question, and all of you have sent your well wishes.

Tonight is the end of the beginning.

Shelly left Scott [names not changed because fuck that guy] about a
year ago. Since then, she has been fighting a legal battle over
custody of her three children (ages 10, 4 and 9 months). For those of
you who do math on the blog, that means she left while she was still
pregnant. Even then, he was beating her. Shelly lived with her mom
for a few months and then rented an apartment with her dad to help
defray some of the costs.

Since she's moved out, Scott has physically threatened three separate
daycare providers, forcing Shelly to find new, and more expensive care
for her children. Currently, one child is in school, and the other
two are in separate daycares to minimize the chances that he finds
them all at the same time. He has come to the apartment and
threatened to break in and take the children, doing whatever damage is
necessary to get them.

At every step in the legal process, Scott has refused to concede even
the slightest fraction of an inch. He has fought, gambled, lied and
abused the system designed to protect the innocent and punish the
guilty. In doing so, he is attempting to win by out-spending her. He
is unemployed, has no education, and has not been able to hold a job
for more than a year in his entire adult life. An acquaintance of his
is representing him pro bono, so there is no financial reason for him
to quit.

Shelly wants full and sole custody of her children, and has documented
a long and colorful history of abuse for the court. The court though,
is slow, and designed with the presumption of innocence at its base.
In this case, that means Scott can get away with nearly anything until
the very, very end.

Her cumulative bills have exceeded $100,000. In an attempt to defray
these bills, my mother-in-law has liquidated her retirement account
(as a priest, she didn't have much to begin with, and the 'early
withdraw' penalties did some damage), my wife and I have given the
money we can along with many, many weekends, help around Shelly's
apartment and household goods she needs to stay above water.

All of everyone's resources are tapped out.

Scott has refused to settle, and this custody case is going to trial.
Shelly's lawyer (who is giving her a non-sarcastically great deal) has
quoted her an additional $30,000 to cover the trial itself. That
money simply doesn't exist.

Shelly needs help. She needs it emotionally, spiritually, physically
and financially. If you're the praying type, please add her to your
lists. If you live in the NoVa area and can donate household items,
please email me (link in sig). If you can help financially, our
family has set up a GoFundMe for her to help alleviate the costs of
winning her children from a violent and abusive man.

If you are inclined and able, please consider giving a few dollars.
We can't offer anything more than gratitude by way of repayment, but
please know that you're helping a desperate woman fighting to save her
children.

Thank you all so very much.

128 It get's worse about the American Killed by terrorist scum in Israel:

As you well know, the last 24 hours have been very difficult for Israel, including this morning. Twelve people were injured in five terrorist attacks. An American citizen, Taylor Force, was murdered. Taylor was a graduate of West Point, a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, a graduate student of Vanderbilt University. And I want to extend our deepest condolences to his family and wish the injured a speedy recovery. And I know I speak for you because you've said these very words."

Netanyahu said he appreciated Biden's condemnation of terrorism, but noted that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas "has not only refused to condemn these terrorist attacks, his Fatah party actually praised the murderer of this American citizen as a Palestinian martyr and a hero."

Either of these facts may be incorrect. But so what? Ace is correct about one thing: Is it now no longer to discuss issues like this, even on your own fu*king blog? You can't even bring it up? He's right, everyone is Social Justice Warrior now.

684 In case Joncelli does show up, I found a beautiful Orthodox prayer from the "The Orthodox Church" by Timothy Ware:


O Lord, Grant me to greet the coming day in peace. Help me in all things to rely upon your holy will. In every hour of the day reveal your will to me. Bless my dealings with all those who surround me. Teach me to treat all that comes throughout the day with peace of soul and with firm conviction that your will governs all. In all my deeds and words guide my thoughts and feelings. In unforeseen events let me not forget that you are with me. Teach me to act firmly and wisely, without embittering and embarrassing others. Give me strength to bear the fatigue of the coming day with all that it shall bring. Direct my will, teach me to pray, pray You Yourself in me. Amen.


That's one of the lovely things about the Orthodox church-the rich prayer tradition.

It's far more likely that any white supremacist would be a evangelical Christian and strict constitutionalist, so they would be Cruz voters.

258 Apropos of nothing...

So I'm currently visiting my very ill MIL in Orlando now. Mr. Black and I spent yesterday running errands for her around town. We had to stop in Walgreens to look for the (yay) BOGO adult diapers.

Going to checkout, the checkout person says, I'll take you! We come around the corner to their register and got the shock of our lives. Our checkout person was an honest to gosh total caricature of a transgender woman. Six foot tall, at least 200lbs, pumping iron muscles, thick neck, square-jawed guy in a dress, makeup and nail polish. Mr. Black and I made eye contact that said, "W.T.H. is that?" Picture Ernest Borgnine in drag. Picture an NFL linebacker dressed as a woman. It was that...bizarre. That said, he/she was a very nice person.

281 For cripes sake will no one ask the question that might actually stop Trump.

"Blind Trust?"

Does anyone think that Trump will give up control of his businesses once he's in the White House? Or that he won't use the office to further enrich himself?

Of course not. At best he'll turn it over to his kids, but in that case what's the difference.

The Shreaking Harpy has the same problem with that corrupt bag o' puss of a husband and the criminal enterprise known as the Clinton Foundation.

But the Harpy will get a pass from the media and Trump will not be able to use it against her.

It's far more likely that any white supremacist would be a
evangelical Christian and strict constitutionalist, so they would be
Cruz voters.



Of course, the real racists are liberals who support the teacher's
union over educating black children and who want black families to give
their inheritance to Social Security, but we don't talk about that.

319 One interesting pattern: in both Kansas and Idaho, Cruz was down to Trump in the polls, but outperformed them by 31 and 28:

Kansas poll: Trump +6 Result: Cruz+25
Idaho poll: Trump +11 Result : Cruz+17

So polling missed those badly, apparently mostly because of late deciders breaking for Cruz.

Looks like this race probably comes down to 3/15 -- if Trump can sweep OH/Fl/Missouri/IL, it's going to be really tough to deny him 1237 unless the others drop out and Cruz can get to 60/40 in the remaining states.

it does look like Kasich might win OH, but that might not help Cruz much because with him in the race, Trump seems likely to win the other 3/15 Midwest states.

All in all, not looking good for the GOP this fall. Caps and gowns are being measured.

You've posted shit from time to time that's made me think. I appreciate it.

351 Read it and weep Dems. Michigan is in play in November.

92,000 more Michigan voters cast ballots for the GOP candidates than voted for the Democrats.

Trump got 84 percent of Hillary's vote total in Michigan, despite having three more competitors than she had.

If just 72 percent of fourth place finisher Rubio's Michigan votes go to Trump, he actually beats Hillary yesterday.

352 ScoggDog: Read on the ONT that willow is hanging it up here until after November. That's a damn shame.

Brother Cavil: I've been toying with it myself. The level of acrimony is so far over the top it's just stupid.

To paraphrase that wise sage, Pogo:

Don't take the blog so serious.

355 Wow, Rubio shut out of the delegate race yesterday.



At this point there's no reason for him to be in the race. Needs to drop out before 3/15 to give Cruz a clear shot.



If Trump can get over 50% and win the nomination, so be it, the GOP
deserves the shellacking they'll get with a candidate whose unfavorables
are more than already 2:1.



But give Cruz his shot.
=========
Current count:
Trump -- 458
Cruz -- 359
Rubio -- 151

Even if Rubio won his home state of FL (99) he would STILL be behind Cruz. By over 100 delegates. Even winning FL and OH, he'd still be behind Cruz.

Even a brokered convention is out for Rubio.

Polls this day have Trump up 16 in FL; 6 in OH.

Only Cruz can beat Trump now.

And Rubio is the only thing standing in the way.

Oh, he'll come up with some scheme that leaves him still in charge behind the scenes and call it a blind trust. And the Goobers will nod their heads and praise him for his selflessness.


We're about to go full Banana Republic.



Frankly, after eight years of the dog-eating crackhead in the Oval Office wiping his ass with the Constitution, a worthless MFM cheering on his every fart as if it were the word of God, an outright treasonous Democrat party giving him full-throated support while they hijack the institutions of this former republic to harass and imprison their domestic opponents, a corrupt judiciary giving the fig leaf of legality to every new outrage and a spineless, worthless, bought-and-paid-for GOP willing to collude and / or turn a blind eye to every one of Obama's illegalities in return for the privilege of being allowed to stuff themselves at the trough of public largess. . . .

I find I really don't give a shit about complaints concerning Teh Donald. Too little and too fucking late.

361 246 "....every damn white supremacists, even if there may be not that many, is, as a simple fact, supporting Trump."


It's far more likely that any white supremacist would be a evangelical Christian and strict constitutionalist, so they would be Cruz voters.

Of course, the real racists are liberals who support the teacher's union over educating black children and who want black families to give their inheritance to Social Security, but we don't talk about that.


Posted by: jwest

Agreed. Even if the white supremacists really like Trump. So? The theory seems to be--"Hitler really liked beer. If you really like beer you're just like Hitler, you fkkin baby-killing Nazi." Not a convincing argument as far as I'm concerned. But then, I'm a guy who really likes beer. Maybe it shows.

281 For cripes sake will no one ask the question that might actually stop Trump.

"Blind Trust?"

Does anyone think that Trump will give up control of his businesses once he's in the White House? Or that he won't use the office to further enrich himself?

Of course not. At best he'll turn it over to his kids, but in that case what's the difference.

The Shreaking Harpy has the same problem with that corrupt bag o' puss of a husband and the criminal enterprise known as the Clinton Foundation.

But the Harpy will get a pass from the media and Trump will not be able to use it against her.

368 To Whom It May Concern at AoSHQ:

It's taken me all of 10 minutes to just get here to the comment section. I've been coming here the better part of 6 years now, but it's become less and less now because of whatever or whomever you have turned your site over to. The stop scripts, the auto-start ads, the buggie, jerky, slow- to non- response that has been occurring over this last year have finally defeated me. I've tried and tried and tried. You win. I'm left wondering how many others Ace has lost due to whatever been done, because I know I'm not the only one. It's taken me another 6 minutes just to write this. Amazing. Hopefully one day you'll decide to do better. I think I'll miss DOOM! most of all. Ciao.

369 I have taken one of the comments about Trump in this thread and replaced Trump with Hitler. And then I replaced some more words with Hitler to make my point clear.

Hitler hitler hitler, will hitler hitler hitler the hitler that hitler hitler hitler Hitler. "Hitler Hitler"? Hitler hitler hitler that Hitler will hitler hitler hitler hitler hitler hitler hitler hitler's hitler the Hitler Hitler. Or that hitler hitler hitler the hitler to hitler hitler hitler? Hitler hitler hitler. Hitler hitler hitler'll hitler it hitler to hitler hitler, but hitler hitler hitler hitler's the hitler. The Hitler Hitler hitler the hitler hitler hitler that hitler hitler 'itler hitler of a hitler and the hitler hitler hitler hitler the Hitler Hitler. But the Hitler will hitler a hitler from the hitler and Hitler hitler hitler hitler hitler to hitler it hitler hitler. Hitler hitler: Hitler Hitler. Hitler's hitler hitler and hitler but I hitler hitler to hitler Hitler.

You must read this series of tweets from Omri Ceren:

Absolutely breathtaking glimpse into the distorted mind of Obama.

It's chilling almost, in its... goddamnit... it's hard to find the right word... lunacy? folly? But it's worse than that.

Please, read the tweets.
