  1. Someone answered questions about racial baloney.
    Now someone else is taking questions. I missed the 2ne guys name.
    Discussing income equality.
    Q. What does ministration have to do to tackle problem. I (Lee) think about addiction.
    A. Not one system is going to fix the problem.
    Prescription drugs is a big problem, man said.
    Q. Question about unemployment.
    A. Lady now taking question. Said we have a way to go.
    Q. About drought in CA.
    A. Lady working hard, it is complicated. Talked to WH regarding pumps. Don’t now see a resolution regarding pumps. When to turn on.

    Oh I think this may be mayors…

      • “livestream” of Dem-Socialists…? HA! There few, god-damn so-called ‘debates’ are HIDDEN on WEEKENDS during football games!
        These god-damn Dem-Socialists DO NOT want anyone (pathetic, biased MSM) asking them about their various Anti-American/Socialist plans & policies.

        • It’s actually pretty smart of them, and reveals how sick they really are. They know they can only lose votes if they open their pie-holes. The DNC knows some of the lost votes will go in the conservative direction (not to the other dem candidate), so they work hard to make sure their peeps never say anything.

          • Anyone see Bernie’s new ad–they played it on MoJoe I swear six times and that was before I tuned out. Simon & Garfunkel, fields, dairy farms, families laughing, Bernie tallies, etc. Mostly if not all white. I wonder if people know those dairy farmers would be gigged 90% taxes along with the rest of us to pay for gigantic “free” programs…That was not mentioned.

  2. Well, Barry the Bum has nothing on his schedule on Friday, (he admittedly skips the PDB and has it sent to his iPad), except for an event at 5 pm – The Mayors’ Conference is ending with a Friday evening reception at the White House. But… It looks like the snowstorm, which is said to be hitting DC at 4 pm and lasting all night, will probably result in the cancellation of this event.

    DAILY GUIDANCE AND PRESS SCHEDULE FOR

  3. Apparently, National Review is out with a special edition entitled, “Against Trump.”

    Which is EXACTLY the kind of message that the burn-it-all-down, pox-on-both-houses voters of 2016 were hoping to hear from the legacy Right.

    So either NR is misreading the electorate very, very badly, or this extended hit piece is a Grandmaster level work of reverse psychology.

    • The Trump train has already left the station.
      Where was the GOPe for the last 7 years? Putting the finishing touches on Jeb? They have no one but themselves to blame for the vacuum they created.

      They would rather give the WH back to the Clintonistas now. How magnaminous of them!

      • Here they go again.
        How dare anyone not go along with the most-excellent establishment toadies put forward by a clueless, deaf political class?
        They know we are uneducated, blue-collar (unskilled)workers, racist, slobs who don’t appreciate the intelligence of their betters.

        • Exactly. I was thinking the other day about personal or editorial political endorsements or “don’t vote for this person” type of hype we see in every political season. It’s all tripe and nonsense as far as I am concerned. What sensible person would be swayed by who an actor or a newspaper supports. Silly, but some lo-info voters might be swayed but no one else.

          It’s nothing new, of course. There’s a well known story about a very famous actress in ancient Greece–had to be back in the 300 BC or so era, as I remember–who was hired by a politician running for the Senate to walk around the streets of Athens yelling out “Appolinia supports (can’t remember the Greek politician’s name at the moment). A paid endorsement all that long ago.

      • Many of you will also enjoy the hit piece du jour on Rubio in the Post–picked up for being a closed park and drinking beer as a teenager. Thank heavens, he somehow got scared straight.

  4. You’ve just got to love how the “experts” tell ppl how to vote. Because if their choice doesn’t get the chosen ones theone, they might have to get off of their arses and get a real job. It’s all about protecting what’s theirs, and keeping themselves in positions of power.what a sick joke that the American ppl are the punchline to.

  5. There is an article in the Daily Mail that says the Republican party has forbidden The National Review from coming to any future Republican debates because of the article they wrote about Donald Trump. Maybe the Republican party is starting to warm up to Trump.

  6. According to CNN, Cruz has no health insurance and it’s Obamacare’s fault. How can a senator not have health insurance? Makes no sense to me…His Blue Cross was cancelled–well so was my plan–I got another one.

  7. Re: today’s schedule, I tried to post this last night but it’s still stuck in moderation:

  8. Random Friday thoughts:

    The Republican party is so freaking stupid, (to use a Trump favorite word). The establishment sucks, and the conservatives are preparing to lose the third election is a row because the whiny babies will sit home again when their choice, (Cruz), isn’t the nominee. I wish I believed in what the Dems stand for becasue I don’t see them screwing their voters over constantly.

    I have comments stuck in moderation, ugh.

    Inauguration Day is exactly 52 weeks from today. I hope at this exact time 52 weeks from now I will buzzed on champagne.

    Testing my new link on my name (click my name).

    Snow, please don’t hit us big up here in northwestern NJ. I see our absentee governor in not coming back to the state from NH, despite the prediction for a lot of snow in the southern and central part of NJ. This is his third year of being absent from the state and not doing a damn thing to earn his paycheck. I can’t wait until the NH primary. I hope he’s humiliated by coming in fourth or fifth, and under ten percent.

    I hope Keith and any WHD’ers in the snowstorm’s path stay warm and safe this weekend! No power losses, please!!

    • I’m taking a course on a very interesting (to me, at least) subject called Complexity. It’s a tough course, lots of new terms, ideas, principles, observations, etc and the professor isn’t great, but it’s still very interesting. Complexity (it’s not the same as complicated) explains cell division, birds flocking, bee hive organization, apple orchids, family isues, etc. Everything where multiple entities interact with other multiple entities. The principles easily apply to politics, and I’ve doing just that. In doing so, the light bulbs in my head are now going off all the time re what’s going on in this political season.

      Anyway, one point I wanted to make: the Republican party and the Conservative movement (using the principles of Complexity) have reached equilibrium. That is (according to the way equilibrium is defined in Complexity principles), they are, at the present moment, dying. There is no growth, no fire, no connectiveness, no adaptability, no tipping point, no “power law”, no life force no integration, no consistent direction based on deep principles. There’s nothing happening, except confusion and misdirection. Part of the reason is a lack of true leadership, an undisciplined approach to politics, a lack of coherence. Pretty sad.

        • I assume the logic and commonsense is yours…The complexity comes when others also think that. I think Marcus is on to something with the idea that this may be a one-off structural change in the leanings of the parties…Conservatism used to be the ideal of Republicans (and a lot of you)–smaller govt, lower spending, more reliance on the self…Now, this is switching to just keeping the trains running on time…the minimum. As I see it, people are willing to “try” sweeping instead of surgical approaches–no Muslims, deport and ask later, bull into negotiations with all and sundry, just anything to make a change, no matter what that change might mean. That is what scares my “common sense.”

        • My ‘common sense’ tells me that the rantings of Palin and Trump, for instance, are not the solution to he problem. They are, in fact, the root of the problem.

          I used to believe that ‘extremists’ existed only on the other side. Sigh.

        • The challenge: whose logic and whose common sense, no? The point of view–the resulting strategy of a particular group, entity, person– what they are so absolutely convinced is the correct “way”, often creates a collapse in the very system they are trying to manage, for a million different reasons. And then they can blame George Bush! ;+}

          Remember, complexity is not the same as complicated.

  9. The NYT had a story on how Hillary had silenced criticism of her wardrobe by her new “look” and while there is plenty I could report on that “new” look in bespoke Mao outfits, my real shock was that so many, many commenters said oh, who cares, she’s brilliant…or words to that effect. I sometimes wonder if I live in the same country as everyone else.

    • WHEW! Kambree has a fire in her that no one, not even the GOP can extinguish because she’s not “conservative” enough.
      I love that kinda fight in people.
      Give hell Kambree, your not alone.
      Great link AZG.

    • Excellent. The gurus, geniuses and assorted riff raff at Fox and other “news” parlors have tried to position themselves as arbitrators of what proper public opinion should be, must be. They’ve fallen into the same sand trap other “news” programs have found themselves, flailing away as their ratings drop. “We are the smart ones. You, our viewers, are the uninformed feudal peasants we have to educate.” I’ve not watched Fox news since Megyn Kelly, Brit Hume and that knucklehead Chris Wallace made flaming butts out of themselves in that notorious first Fox “debate”. I have far more choices on the internet when I want to know what’s going on, and I’ve lived to many years to be lectured to as though I were a child. I read all points of view and then make up my mind. Lots and lots of choices, as you all know.

      • I still watch Cavuto, The Five (groan, Juan), and the Sat AM financial shows…I check O’Reilly, but sometimes do not stay all hour–he needs new regulars. He also somehow thinks he has control over Trump, so he has him on all the time so he, O’Reilly, can school him–it’s tiresome (Trump just says the same stock stuff). Speaking of people who have dumped the news, where is grace these days?
