Hey TW!

AdLib4 hours ago

Hey Ad how’s it going? Well Sinema played her on Trump card today, declaring she is going to be an independent some how I saw that coming.

twilson117

4 hours ago

I didn’t predict that she would become an independent, I should’ve because it’s the most self-serving betrayal. Going Repub would have ended her political career so she’d never have done that. I say play chicken with her, Reuben Gallegos will run for the Dem nom, Sinema thinks she can be Bernie but she’s not.

AdLib4 hours ago

PPO is in the house.

twilson117

4 hours ago

I think more moderate Repubs will vote for her and maybe some indies but Dems won’t vote for her after this betrayal. She thinks she’s screwed the Dem party and that they’ll have to support her as an indie but no way. If the AZ Senate seat goes to a Repub, Sinema will be done and remembered as a traitor who put a MAGA Senator in office.

AdLib4 hours ago

Hey PPO! What’s up?

AdLib4 hours ago

Hi, Ad, TW. all is quiet just now. gearing up for a quiet Christmas.

Ad I think she’s done in the world of politics time for her to go take that job she’s been eying with her lobbyist supporters.

twilson117

4 hours ago

PPO – Yes, I know it’s not an easy time. We’re here for you though and you have so many friends around the world who are too.

AdLib4 hours ago

Why the Dems didn’t dicipline her sooner is a mystery to me.

pinkpantheroz

4 hours ago

Thanks, Ad. Still raw, but coping.

pinkpantheroz

4 hours ago

PPO like Ad said we’re here you.

twilson117

4 hours ago

TW – Yes, Sinema just buried her political future and I question just how valuable she would be as a lobbyist when Dems will flush her down the toilet after 2024 and Repubs reject her too.

AdLib4 hours ago

Thanks, TW. It is easier because of my Worldwide friends, who I cherish

pinkpantheroz

4 hours ago

PPO honored to be considered as one

twilson117

4 hours ago

PPO – It’s a political puzzle. Dems couldn’t go too far to push her to being so spiteful she became a Repub and handed them The Senate. They need to keep their friends close and their enemies closer. At least until the 2024 election is over. I promise you though, after 2024, Sinema will be persona non grata in DC.

AdLib4 hours ago

PPO as to why he Dem’s don’t discipline her It’s my belief it’s easier to suffer through what she does than push her to far to point she does something beyond stupid.

twilson117

4 hours ago

OK, gottit. I thought the latest victory made her and the other eejit irrelevant.

pinkpantheroz

4 hours ago

PPO Ad, the Dems have a tough road in the 24 election a number of seats up.

twilson117

4 hours ago

PPO she stays on her committees and which she has as a dem, but she will continue to be a royal butt pain.

twilson117

4 hours ago

TW – Agreed, Dems would be shooting themselves in the foot if they threw Sinema out of their coalition and were reduced from a 51 seat majority. They know what they’re doing, hang in with this narcissist voting with Dems 90% of the time, with 51 they can ignore her as long as Manchin is on board and since he’s running in 2024 too, I think he will be less of an obstructionist.

AdLib4 hours ago

Ad I agree

twilson117

4 hours ago

TW – Yes, Dems have more vulnerable seats up in 2024 than Repubs, it will be a challenging year but if they perform like this year, they can retain the Senate and I think a new Dem will hold Sinema’s seat.

AdLib4 hours ago

I see. So Manchin has to tread carefully so he’s not primaried?

pinkpantheroz

4 hours ago

The problem is (as it always is) over on the House side.

twilson117

4 hours ago

PPO that’s the common thinking. But, I wouldn’t count anything out. After all we did have an failed coup.

twilson117

4 hours ago

PPO – I don’t know if Manchin’s as worried about being primaried because he’s one of the only Dems voters in WV will vote for. But he’s going to want Dem funding for his campaign and Repubs won’t step in if he sabotages Dems, they will have their own MAGA candidate. Manchin needs party financial support and becoming their adversary will undermine that.

AdLib4 hours ago

Will The Blob ever be punished? I think stealing Classified docs might just do it.

I saw a comment that Hakim Jeffries has a better path to becoming House Speaker than McCarthy!

AdLib3 hours ago

PPO we may have dodged a bullet as they say, but the forces who what to tear down the democracy we have are still out there.

twilson117

3 hours ago

Ad it always comes down to the money doesn’t it.

twilson117

3 hours ago

PPO – I predict that Drumpf will be indicted around January by both the GA DA and the DoJ.

AdLib3 hours ago

Ad where did you read that?

twilson117

3 hours ago

TW – Yes, the Repub fascist agenda is not dead, just defeated in this election. It’s not going away, it’s an unending battle.

AdLib3 hours ago

Ad, from your lips….

pinkpantheroz

PPO maybe we should start a pool everyone chip in a six pack??

twilson117

3 hours ago

Ad one battle does not a war win.

twilson117

3 hours ago

Has anyone heard from Murph??

twilson117

3 hours ago

TW – For a greedy bastard like Manchin, yep, it’s all about the money. Sinema though, she loves being patted on the head by RW plutocrats and Repubs but she’s cutting her own throat. She is deluded and thinks she’s loved while she has an approval rating of 18% in Az.

AdLib3 hours ago

Not me, but I haven’t been here much recently. I am seeing KT on Twitter. Is this the same KT who used to be here?

pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago

PPO I’m big on twitter so I couldn’t tell you

twilson117

3 hours ago

TW – I saw a tweet from a journalist that McCarthy has too many MAGAs pledging not to vote for him while Dems only need a few moderate Repubs to elect Jeffries. Simple math, all depends on if moderate Repubs, one of whom has already said he’s open to it, will move over instead of letting a Repub puppet for MAGAs destroy their election hopes in 2024.

AdLib3 hours ago

TW – I like that idea! Let’s start a pool!

AdLib3 hours ago

TW – I haven’t heard from Murph, wanted to see if he’d be here tonight. Will reach out to him.

AdLib3 hours ago

I say Jan 26. Australia Day. Pool to be settled in July in San Francisco

pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago

Ad that would be a hoot if that happened.

twilson117

3 hours ago

PPO – That’s not our KT on Twitter. As you probably know, it’s the name of the character in Vonnegut novels (multiple) so not surprising someone else could pick it as a username.

AdLib3 hours ago

Well it’s early he might show.

twilson117

3 hours ago

At least Kari Lake is history.

pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago

Wondered, Ad.

pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago

PPO Kari Lake another full-blown idiot.

twilson117

3 hours ago

PPO – Perfect! Whoever wins will have beers bought for them in July in SFO (if they can make it) and those who lose can just Paypal or whatever. Just a few bucks, will be fun!

AdLib3 hours ago

Kari Lake may now run for AZ Senate thanks to Sinema.

AdLib3 hours ago

Ad, TW’s gone walkabout

pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago

I’m back

twilson117

3 hours ago

I just want Dems to humor Sinema until the AZ Senate primary then throw their weight 100% behind Gallego. Dare Sinema to end up remembered as a loser or a traitorous spoiler. End her lobbyist hopes and destroy her value.

AdLib3 hours ago

TW – Glad you’re back! What happened?

AdLib3 hours ago

Ad, Granddaughter coming out in July so I won’t make it but I can kick in a few bucks. Everyone can have a beer on me.

twilson117

3 hours ago

Ad hit a wrong key or something.

twilson117

3 hours ago

TW – You must have hit the Ejection Seat button.

AdLib3 hours ago

Glad Pres. Joe signed the Respect for Marriage Act. Abortion next. Then Arms, then electoral boundaries reform.

pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago

Something like that.

twilson117

3 hours ago

But I made a soft landing.

twilson117

3 hours ago

So how about the Trump Org getting over a dozen criminal convictions? The beginning of the end?

AdLib3 hours ago

Maddening that Himself still is ‘free’.

pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago

PPO – Glad about that too but abortion won’t be next because Dems need at least 52 Senate seats to suspend the filibuster and they need the House which they don’t have the majority in now. That is a 2024 issue.

AdLib3 hours ago

Ad love I hope they just keep bringing them. Saw an article were he is screaming at everybody at Mara -Largo

twilson117

3 hours ago

PPO people are still afraid to treat him like the criminal he is because he got to sit behind the Resolute Desk for four years and leave a foul smell in the Oval Office every time he entered.

twilson117

3 hours ago

PPO – I’m less frustrated about Trump not being indicted yet because it is clearly coming now. There’s also a civil suit in DC for 1/6, a rape and defamation suit by E. Jean Carol in NY, the NY AG suit against Trump and his business for hundreds of millions, they will all come crashing down on him within the next few months and he will hopefully save us all time and trouble and defect to Russia.

AdLib3 hours ago

He’s now an ex-Pres. Go get him!

pinkpantheroz

Did you see what happened to the President of Peru when he tried a coup? He’s sitting in a jail cell. That should be Trump.

twilson117

3 hours ago

If they did it in Peru, why not in USA? Jail him first, then trial!

pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago

PPO I wish I knew.

twilson117

3 hours ago

TW – As we discussed, it will be like an extreme reality show, Trump trying to run for the nom while he’s fighting against multiple criminal and civil trials and while other Repubs are running against him in primaries. If Trump does poorly in polls and primary elections, then it all goes to another level of insanity and desperation. Does Trump tell the GOP to get lost and steal his MAGAs into a Trump party? Does he try to destroy the GOP in other ways? I don’t see how the GOP survives the 2024 election at this point.

AdLib3 hours ago

But this new special prosecutor seems to be moving at a rapid pace. Hopefully we’ll start seeing more direct and decisive action.

twilson117

3 hours ago

PPO – Oh yeah, the ceiling is about to really come crashing down on Trump and I’m here with my popcorn in hand to watch it!

AdLib3 hours ago

I’ll stay up all night to see it all happening.

pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago

Ad I of the opinion he will be making an announcement about breaking away from the RP, which would be a godsend for them.

twilson117

3 hours ago

Of course we all know that when it finally happens, there will be crickets from the RWNJ Media

pinkpantheroz

3 hours ago

PPO you are correct on that.

twilson117

3 hours ago

Yes, saw what happened to the President of Peru, he tried to dissolve the legislature before they could impeach him and tried to get the military to support his coup. Instead, they impeached him and arrested him. He wasn’t as mafia-boss-smart as Trump who always keeps layers between himself and his crimes. But everyone slips up and Trump has, the 1/6 Committee is going to refer him to the DoJ for prosecution and they’re going to publicly release all the goods they have on him and his cronies.

AdLib3 hours ago

Ad, what you said seems to be what is being hinted at in the news cycle today.

twilson117

3 hours ago

TW – Yes, Jack Smith, the Special Counsel has given me enormous confidence in his speed and aggressiveness that Trump will be indicted. I think he’s going to indict Trump first for the document thefts and then for the 1/6 sedition months later. Two criminal cases against Trump by the DoJ seem inevitable now and I am thrilled at Smith’s doggedness to make that happen.

AdLib3 hours ago

Hopefully soon. Well, I’m calling it a day. I may get in another Vox or two before the Season. If not, I wish you all a very happy Christmas and a healthy New Year.

Also, let’s not forget about what is going on in Georgia. It looks like she will be issuing some charges of her own.

twilson117

3 hours ago

PPO take care and be well, and Happy Holidays to you.

twilson117

3 hours ago

TW – The only alternative to his breaking away from the GOP and bringing half their party with him is if he wins the nom. But can you imagine the spectacle of Trump running as the Repub nom as he’s being prosecuted for being a traitor? Wow, the GOP will lose that election in a Blue Tsunami!

AdLib3 hours ago

TW – I think it’s a race between the DoJ indicting Trump for stealing documents and the GA DA indicting him for election fraud. Which do you think happens first?

AdLib3 hours ago

Ad I can see Trump doing exactly that. He is such a narcist believes he’s invincible and can do anything and get away with it.

twilson117

3 hours ago

I was afraid you would ask me that. Giving the fact it won’t happen till next month I’m going with Georgia coming out of the blocks first.

twilson117

3 hours ago

I’m saying that because her case is pretty clear cut, they have him on tape asking for the election to be thrown.

twilson117

3 hours ago

TW – I think Trump is recognizing that he’s not getting out of it this time. He’s suddenly moved to the most extreme and violent groups, the Qanon and militia types and I think that once he’s indicted, he will tell them to revolt against America…in a violent way.

AdLib3 hours ago

Shall I give you a call?

AdLib3 hours ago

And I believe the DoJ will be right behind her and let’s not forget about the AG in NY. For Trump it will be hurricane inside a tornado inside a Sunami
