the results from UK are terrific. Thanks Jack. It seems the re-alignment in the UK is very similar to what is going on here. What do the Dems offer to working people? Mostly higher taxes concealed in their green mandates. Here in California we pay 50% more for electricity (when it is turned on) because of green mandates and other restrictions. We pay $1.50 more for gas because of green mandates . Trump offers jobs and higher wages. Plus more control over illegal immigration. the UK has the same situation. the EU was strangling them with regulation and green mandates. they are freezing in their beds because the windmills don't generate enough electricity. Saying goodbye to the EU will be the best thing Britain has done in several generations.
jeez, Politico over-samples Dems, and their "Republicans" have only 80% approval of Trump!! Shouldn't that be 90% or 95%?
I like to check how Trump is polling every day on RCP. today I noticed that the low poll was Politico, which has his approval at 39%, versus a high of 51% for Rasmussen. What's going on? I looked at the change in rating for a bunch of the polls over the last two months, and I see that Politico has Trump moving steadily downward, from 43% to today's 39%. This doesn't jibe with Rasmussen, which has moved up; the Hill, which has remained steady at 46%; or the Economist, which has remained steady at 44%. So what gives? I think Politico has decided to over-sample Democrats. the weasels.
Horowitz says he "didn't find" any evidence of political bias or motivation. That is not a conclusion that there was none. Since Barr and Durham have a wider scope, they could find political motivation, and that would not contradict Horowitz. And the "problems" found by Horowitz could be used as evidence.
Given that the FBI is supposed to be extra special careful when politically sensitive individuals are involved, as IG confirms.

Melinda, the quote you provided says that the IG has documented errors that have been made, which could not be explained by those who made them. This information can be used to prosecute if Barr wants to do it.

Horowitz identifies 17 mistakes that were made in the FISA applications, and says that the people he interviewed were not able to tell him why they made those mistakes, such as providing information they had that contradicted the FISA app. There is no section of the report that addresses referral for prosecution, so Barr can use the report to prosecute if he wants.

TK, I agree, "serious explaining to do" is like Woody Allen's friend in Manhattan saying that a really serious letter to the Times is what was called for.

I was just looking at polls on RCP. In California, Biden is ahead of Trump by 27 points!! Since California is irrelevant in the election, and California's population is 12% of the US, that means that Trump's position in national polls excluding California is 3.3 percentage points higher.

Good thread today. Congrats. I am off to get two dental implants. Going to the dentist doesn't usually bother me, but i find that i am really edgy about this. Still easier than listening to an Adam Schiff news conference.

John Ratcliffe "Page gave us new information that Strzok either wouldn't or couldn't, confirming some of the concerns we had about these investigations and the people involved in running them." Because she was not a decision-maker like Strzok, Comey and McCabe, she is not in line for being charged with anything major, so her claim that she can't be guilty of anything doesn't mean she has not cooperated with the investigation

Lisa Page cooperated, we were told. She observed a lot, but maybe she believes that whatever actions she took or didn't take were not illegal. She hasn't been implicated in any of the actions taken.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We are driving out to Rancho Mirage to my sister-in-law's nice house in a retirement community there. Too bad that it will rain for the next three days, but lots of people have worse weather than that! If you have any prayers left tomorrow, maybe you could pray that my wife and daughters do not bankrupt me at the outlet stores in Cabazon. Best to all.

I use Brave on my laptop. It is great for blocking ads, but won't run a lot of videos. also, when i open RealClearPolitics, the site gets very angry with me.

in the article linked by anonamom, CFA defended themselves by saying that they allowed volunteer members of the advisory board to suggest charities. This may have just been a stupid mistake. They are saying it will not happen again.

Maybe Nunes can write Collins' opening statements.
Toggle Commented Nov 27, 2019 on Panic On The Left Bank at JustOneMinute
If Nadler holds impeachment hearings, how will ranking member Collins do in the Nunes' role?

MT, I have seen Muir as well. I imagine the viewers are a bunch of clueless old people saying "OH, the president is being impeached! He did something bad! Ohh! A dog rescued a cat from a burning building! How sweet! Oh! We are going to either drown or die of thirst from global warming! How awful!

DRJ, I was skiing at Mammoth last April, almost killed myself because my hip was so bad. Had the replacement in August, and I am doing great. I hope to get back on the slopes

Another Bob, sorry to not respond to your last. I was commuting home, making dinner etc. As far as the nature of my project, I have been asked to keep it confidential. Nothing scary, just normal business proprietary stuff.
