See you then! AdLib 4 hours ago

Well, I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that the Senate would put the fix in. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

hi glenn pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

Hey glenn! AdLib 4 hours ago

Hey PPO and Ad. Definitely we shouldn’t be surprised, but it still pisses me off to no end. The only “good” news is that the vote on acquittal won’t be held until after the State of the Union speech. The TLB already knows he will be acquitted, of course, but it won’t be “official” until after the SOTU. glenn 4 hours ago

He is still impeached and that stain will linger forever. Still, it hurts pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

PPO – I actually think it may turn out to be the best of a bad situation. Now it is a de facto claim that this trial was a sham, the only oe in U.S. history without witnesses and evidence. Trump will not be vindicated no matter what BS Repubs claim, this may have been the only way to undermine the unavoidable result. AdLib 4 hours ago

Ad, maybe with more impeachments on the horizon, the plebs may finally get the message that He is an utter crook. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

I know it would be attacked by the Repubs and Trump but I think Dems should stand up and walk out of Trump’s SOTU. Turn their backs on him and make it an historic rejection. AdLib 4 hours ago

Hey Harleigh! AdLib 4 hours ago

Hiya H! pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

hey folks! Harleigh 4 hours ago

Ad, yes, shun the cretin at every opportunity. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

PPO – Absolutely, Dems should open new impeachment hearings based on Boltonn’s charges and hav him appear. AdLib 4 hours ago

Will he dare poke his nose into the Superbowl? pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

PPO – Yep, Trump is running an ad during the Superbowl. AdLib 4 hours ago

Nov’s election is pretty straightforward now, either vote for monarchy or democracy. AdLib 4 hours ago

Ad, yes, I saw that, but will he be there? pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

gotta votefor duhmurikkka to have a chance Harleigh 4 hours ago

Democracy or Dictatorship, You Decide!!! pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

PPO–Yes, he will forever be known as an impeached president. Speaking of stains, do you think the TLB’s orange spray has some sort of hypnotic powers? What is it about this idiot that makes republicans so sycophantic towards this man? I just don’t get it. Republicans could actually pick up more independent votes (IMO) if they voted the TLB out. As for the TLB’s base, they will never vote for a Democrat, so repubs don’t have to worry about that. Plus, if the TLB were removed, which I know is never going to happen, we would still have a republican president. I just don’t get it; but then again, I’m not a cowardly, sniveling, traitorous republican. glenn 4 hours ago

Hey Harleigh glenn 4 hours ago

SB is here in floriduh. the fat asshole will be there bet on it Harleigh 4 hours ago

Funny, Australia and Britain are in the same throes of being monstered by crooks. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

hi glenn Harleigh 4 hours ago

Ad–Of course you know the TLB will claim to be “exonerated”, but as you say, this sham of a “trail” will also be a forever stain on republicans. glenn 4 hours ago

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! Jenuwin 4 hours ago

Glenn, if TLB was kicked out, what cance would then POTUSPence have to be elected in his own right? I douby much. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

doubt! pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

Ad–Oh, that would be glorious to see Dems do that! And Schiff should get to lead the parade out! glenn 4 hours ago

glenn – It’s really very simple, Trump is a sociopath who over the past 3 years, has learned how to weaponize the power he has and politicians, as Batman would say, are a cowardly lot. AdLib 4 hours ago

Hiya Jenuwin! pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

hi jenuwin! Harleigh 4 hours ago

Hi Jenuwin! AdLib 4 hours ago

The gang! Happy to see everyone! Jenuwin 4 hours ago

PPO-Given that Miami is just down the road from MarALargo, I’m pretty sure the TLB will not be able to resist the crowds. We’ll see, though. Harleigh, do you think he would be booed or cheered at the SB? glenn 4 hours ago

Fergie commented that the current situation is uncomfortably like Germany in the late 20s-30s. Worrisome indeed pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

Hey Jenuwin glenn 4 hours ago

glenn – Yes but only his cult followers will buy it. Remember, it rose to around 80% of the public wanting witnesses and evidence. 80% of Americans know this trial was a political sham. Trump’s claims of exoneration again, after claiming it and not being believed after the Mueller investigation will fall on deaf ears. AdLib 4 hours ago

hoping he gets booed Harleigh 4 hours ago

Ad–just a small correction–republican politicians are a cowardly lot, otherwise I agree with you. glenn 4 hours ago

ppo…. 1936 Harleigh 4 hours ago

We probably won’t hear boos, H. The media will set the mikes up to highlight cheers. They know which side of their bread is buttered. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

PPO – That is true though the majority of Germans fell behind the Nazis, that’s not the case here and Dems do have some power that they will continue to use to go after Trump. AdLib 4 hours ago

PPO–Fergie is indeed a wise woman. glenn 4 hours ago

pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

glenn – In general, I think politicians are cowardly but there are many who have courage. As Schiff mentioned in one of his best speeches in the hearing, political courage is rare. AdLib 4 hours ago

Ad-it certainly seems that our so-called “liberal media” is determined to convince us that the majority of Americans support the TLB, which is not true. glenn 4 hours ago

For once I wish I were at the SB, loaded with beer and food, and throw the lot at any screen which shows TLB’s smirky orange puss. pinkpantheroz 4 hours ago

The stakes of the election in November are enormous now. Repubs have created a monarchy, they and Trump are expecting Russia, voter suppression, gerrymandering and other political corruption to help them retain power. Dems only have the majority of voters behind them and they have to win by even more to overcome all of that. AdLib 4 hours ago

yep Harleigh 4 hours ago

Ad–Most politicians are never challenged to show their courage. Most of the time, they’re just pandering to their base. However, in this case, where courage is required, I don’t see one republican politician showing the least bit of it. Even Romney, who voted for witnesses, will vote for acquittal. glenn 4 hours ago

OK, now who reckons that Bernie is a waste of space and time? I do. He is not a Democrat! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Taylor Swift called Blackburn trump in wig! lol Harleigh 3 hours ago

glenn – I have nticed recently a meme from the media that’s trying to pump up the perception of support for Trump…despite the latest poll showing only 38% support for him. The MSM is a corporate instrument, profits are far more important than truth and setting up close races brings more ratings and money. This is not close now nor has it been. AdLib 3 hours ago

PPO–Yeah, except of throwing at any screen, it would be nice to throw it directly in his face. glenn 3 hours ago

There has not been one national poll putting Trump ahead of any of the Dem front runners that I’ve seen since the Dem primary began. AdLib 3 hours ago

glenn, that would be delish, except for the USSS gorillaz surrounding him. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

This was Schiff’s quote from Kennedy: “Schiff quoted a 1966 remark from Sen. Robert F. Kennedy: “Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change the world which yields most painfully to change.” AdLib 3 hours ago

Bloomberg is making an impression. He has also said if he is not the nominee, he will throw his real money at the candidate, but would he back Bernie? pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Ad–Exactly. The media will continue to show his rallies, while ignoring Dem rallies. I think we should have a new rule–for every TLB rally shown on cable television, there should also be a Dem rally shown. For every tweet from the TLB, a Dem tweet should be posted right below it. And, it should be a Dem officeholder, not republicans against the TLB. And, every Pelosi news conference should be shown live. That sounds like three new rules, but it’s really only one. glenn 3 hours ago

Bernie will not win the Dem nom IMO, a majority of Dems oppose him and as the race shrinks, his ability to win delegates will be more difficult. If it goes to a brokered convention, no way he wins. AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad–that’s true about the polls, but it definitely is not mentioned enough in the MSM. Every time the TLB tweets about his numbers and the media repeats his tweets ad nauseum, that fact should be shown right after it. glenn 3 hours ago

Ad, relief, but his Bernie Brownshirts may do the ‘Wont vote for anyone other than Bernie’ and damage the Dems pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Bloomberg is a moderate Republican trying to buy the nom. No way he is the nom. So I hope he does but a billion behind whoever the nom is…though I don’t think it will be Bernie. AdLib 3 hours ago

Ad–So, will we have a repeat of 2016, where the Bernie bots will not vote for the Dem nom? glenn 3 hours ago

I’m not crazy about Bernie. Jenuwin 3 hours ago

glenn – Yes, Trump’s rallies should not be covered, they are not news, they are propaganda rallies. Should Nazi propaganda rallies be televised? AdLib 3 hours ago

PPO–I just asked the same question about Bernie bots. Do you think they have learned their lesson? glenn 3 hours ago

bern is NOT a dem and he really sucks… waving his arms and spitting into the mic. Harleigh 3 hours ago

Jenuwin–I’m not crazy about Bernie, either. I hope he doesn’t win the Dem nom, but if he does, I’ll vote for him. I will not stay home because I didn’t get the nom I wanted. glenn 3 hours ago

Funny. I may be wrong, but Bernie seems to be the only politician TLB hasn’t a nasty nickname for. Is he secretly happy Bernie is a disruoter? pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

disrupter pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

PPO – Polls have already shown a segment of Bernie voters won’t vote for the Dem nom if it’s not Bernie. We don’t need them, the polls show all the other nooms beating Trump without them but Dems need to rally turnout and not neglect or take for granted any swing states this time. AdLib 3 hours ago

Good, Ad. If BS doesn’t get the nod, he MUST urge his Bots and Bros to vote Dem anyway pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

PPO–Hard to tell why the TLB doesn’t have a nickname for Bernie. I think he has called him a socialist and other names, though; he just hasn’t given him a consistent nickname. glenn 3 hours ago

glenn – Not a repeat of 2016 but yes, many Bernie Bros won’t vote for the Dem. The difference is, there is no 3rd party candidate to siphon off votes (if Tulsi ran as a 3rd party candidate, she’d only get Repub and Bernie Bros who aren’t voting Dem anyway). AdLib 3 hours ago

Fergie! pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago

Ad–Then those Bernie voters are as stupid as the TLB’s voters, IMO. They are part of the reason the TLB won. glenn 3 hours ago

hi fergi Harleigh 3 hours ago

glenn, that’s my worry. pinkpantheroz 3 hours ago
