Nothing new at Judicial Watch today. Bryan the IT Guy has to testify -- no immunity for you! -- but we're still at "The parties shall meet and confer to find a date and time for Mr. Pagliano's deposition prior to the close of discovery."

Oh yeah, I forgot to add my daily question to the universe:

WHERE IS THIS GUY GETTING HIS MONEY?

He has a wife and 2 kids, no discernible job, and a lawyer who's maneuvering him through a federal criminal case AND a federal civil case.

The other question: How is it possible that he hasn't told Team Hillary every single thing he said to the FBI when he was interrogated by them under immunity? I don't even see why people are saying "Ooooohhh, what does the FBI know that Hillary doesn't because of Bryan Pagliano???? Ooohh!" Like, wut? Of course she knows what they know as far as his remarks go.

37 5 re Pagliano -- His video will be a series of

"I refuse to answer on the grounds of the 5th Amendment".

14 re Brexit --

The people of Britain will the winners overall, as they will no longer have to obey the dictates of the EU, and will regain (some) control of their borders. There may be some financial repercussions though, especially on trade within the EU bloc.

Still doomed by demographics, but maybe at a slower pace.

No. Looking at how he's polling now, I think Trump has lost control of something and the hostile press is in charge. He has a rally in Dallas today. I imagine he'll rant a lot, thus confirming the bias.

Well, Powerline reports that Paul Ryan is about to give Obama $40mil for a thing called the "CVE," or Countering Violent Extremism. The word "Islamist terrorism" does not occur in the program's description. It's essentially "a slush fund for the CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood" so they can argue with ISIS on social media.

And I did say, Paul Ryan supports it.

Yeah, right. They haven't leaked a damn thing yet, just published emails that were gotten by other parties through FOIA.

That is also true, generally "human" characters would be more likely to get the five finger treatment, while anthropomorphized "other" characters would get the easier four or three fingers.

Try it for yourself. It's weird and I'm not sure why but it is much much easier to draw an aesthetically pleasing cartoon hand if you ignore the pinky. Too often drawing the pinky-ed hand properly ends up either making the cartoon wrist look too big to match the larger hand size or alternately gets the wrist right but with a odd looking lump of hand meat under the pinky that doesn't match the sizing of the wrist.

It's weird...

Then we clear them from the watch list,

The latest smattering of polls coming out from various sources does seem worrisome. From a Washington Examiner blast I got this morning on Wisconsin:

"In the latest Marquette University Law School poll of registered voters, Clinton leads Trump by seven percentage points (42-35 percent). Among likely voters, Clinton's lead widens, winning 46 percent to Trump's 37 percent, with 13 percent saying they will not support either candidate."

They conclude that, while Cankles isn't rising, Trump is markedly falling, and it reflects his "lack of national support." With as stupid as our nation has become, it appears even a radical islamic massacre can't snap people back to reality and clear the Kardashian-induced fog from their brains. We are well and truly doomed.

.The polls had Grimes up by 3-5 points on election day and McConnell won by 14 points. Most of the polls were off 15 points, one from I think it was PPP but I could be wrong, it was one sponsored by the Lexington newspaper, was off by 19 points after it was all said and done.

They are jacking around with the polls on purpose now and have been for some time now in an attempt to influence the vote.

164 >>>159 Regarding the term "regulate" in the late 1700s, a common pendulum clock was often called a regulator because it performed its time keeping function extremely well. It did not imply that the government would come in and adjust your clock!

This is another reason the left seeks to alter the meaning of almost every word in common usage so that any set of words can be used to mean whatever the narrative requires that day! The one word they do leave alone, however, is "Submit".

What's really troubling about this is that the conventional wisdom (with apologies for cynicism) held that Trump was one terror attack away from a landslide. The opposite has happened. Trump is a bigoted loon and Hillary has foresight and depth.

Say what you will about Trump, but had it not been for the Trump phenomenon, much of what we know now about the GOP and our government as a whole, we would probably still not have known.

We would have continued, pissed off, no doubt, but pissed off because of a sense that the shit was not right, not the explicit knowledge the we are not only being lied to, but that the shitsacks are actually in concert with those who are out to stifle and probably eventually eliminate, democracy.

Any other time, any other election, Trump would not even have been a consideration for me, I think. Now, it looks like - for me - he is the only one that I am aware of even worth pulling the lever for - in any race.

Something I'm concerned about this is that several of the eye witnesses, early on, said that there was more than one gunman. Many said that 20-30 shot were fired within one to two seconds.

If more than one shooter was involved, this implies a terrorist cell. It implies a cover up. It eviscerates the argument that it was guns, and not a lone wolf terrorist that was responsible. It would explode the congressional gun control bullshit.

Posted by: Mr Macca Bean at June 16, 2016 09:09 AM (4ng05)

201 Everyone worried about the polls. I have a quick question for you.

Were you also worried when Trump's poll ceiling in the primary was 30? Remember that ceiling was in place for a month and a half or so. Were you worried then? Remember Wisconsin too.

Then suddenly he broke it. He broke it a lot. No one foresaw or predicted that either.

Remember, he's a nimble navigator.

That and it was clear his arguments were very personal to him, as if by saying immigration needed revamped we were threatening either him or someone close to him. Heck, *Ace* called him on that, but he never would say.

I think if he'd been honest about what shaped his perspective he would have gotten understanding here. Instead, he demanded *agreement* without giving information.

Trump gutted a field of 16 Republican contenders and didn't break a sweat. Not all of these guys were no-loads. Clinton is deeply flawed and gets more flawed by the day. I don't believe the comparison can be made between Clinton and Obama. Obama was a deity to the left. Clinton is just a woman. That's her singular appeal. Another 'historic first'. That's all she is to the left. Most of them don't even like her.

210 Don Surber pointed out an interesting article at HuffPo where campaign staff for Jeb, Cruz, and Rubio were interviewed. The information was interesting - they said that they knew by Labor Day that Trump was the one to beat. That was one fact.

The other was with the question of favorable and unfavorable. One of them said that they were also taking a look at the consider factor "would you consider voting for candidate X" and learned that Trump was very high, up near his floor of 28% when it came to this.

(1) They knew he was the one to beat, and they did not adjust their plans to do that.
(2) They knew that a lot of people were willing to consider voting for Trump, but did not figure out how to reduce that.
(3) They believed that the 28% favorable rating Trump had was his floor, not his ceiling; unlike what the pundits were clamoring about.

(4) My own take: So many of the pundits and commentators have been proven to engage in wishful thinking, twisting things to fit their own particular agendas, or flat-out lying that I have no idea really what is correct information or isn't. I have no idea what is going to happen this election year.

Once his opponent was the Dem, he was turned on and got the Pesci in the cornfield treatment. Trump never really got the love per se, but I think there will be a difference in coverage between calling Jeb low-energy and making fun of Little Marco, etc and calling out Obie and Hilldog. He's got to be able to smash through the media and connect with the people.
