    Sessions is pissed off! #COVFEFE

  3. Watching Sessions testify the term that comes to mind is “banty rooster.”

  4. They only bagged 2 in Merced.

  5. CiscoKid says:

    WTF is this shit?
    If someone did that to my child I’d kick their ass…I’ll take the arrest.

  6. helenk3 says:

    I was waiting for Sessions to go across the table and deck wyden.
    He worked with this people for years and to see what this has turned into is sickening.

    BTW who leaked comey testimony from the closed hearing? I know who I think did it

  7. helenk3 says:

    the dems are doing all this bitching about bringing things out into the open and stonewalling. where were they went backtrack did not even think congress was necessary when he was doing what he wanted to do.

    every day the dems make me want to tell them to go to hell

    who is this smug ass henrich?

  8. Lulu says:

    The Dems are degenerating into Abbott and Costello routines. They got nothing.

  9. swanspirit says:

    I like me some Senator Cotton. A whole lot.

  10. helenk3 says:

    harris is showboating now. Never taught any manners was she? she will not shut up long enough to let him answer her nonsense questions. This is the 2nd time the chairman had to tell her to shut up. She did the same thing at the last hearing.

  11. swanspirit says:

    Kamala Harris is such a bitch.

    • CiscoKid says:

      Then why was Sessions asked if Trump was considering pardons?
      Certainly not for Comey. And I don’t think for anyone else.

      • lizzie says:

        If Trump pardoned Flynn there would be no obstruction charge if he told Comey to drop the investigation. As President he is in charge of managing all parts of the government..

  12. Dora says:

    In the meantime, over in Wisconsin.

  13. Somebody says:

    Sessions did a good job, I just wish he wouldn’t have entertained answering any questions about why POTUS fired Comey. He can give HIS opinion as to why HE recommended firing Comey, but he’s not a mind reader as to POTUS’s thinking. However, he could have volunteered that Comey has a teeny tiny dick, freakishly small and perhaps that bothered POTUS

    • Anthony says:

      It should bother all of us, Somebody. I’ve thrown dates out of my house for less. Teeny weenies are just plain bad luck…

      OMG!!! The Russians are invading!!!! Someone stop them!!

      • Somebody says:

        IKR, John McCain was rambling about Russians driving through Kansas and wandering the southwest deserts. Funniest comment I saw someone asked if McCain watched “National Lampoon’s Vacation” last night and got confused, LMAO!

    • Jadzia says:

      This is why I pay money to avoid economy class whenever possible. Not because it’s any nicer (at least not on the trains it’s not really nicer). But to avoid this class of person.

    just wondering
    does Hollywood plan to remake the movie The Russians are Coming? i can see it starring mad max waters, nutty nancy pelosi, slimy slug shumer and lynch and comey playing a segment of boris and natasha, trying to put kalma harris in a non-speaking roll.

    how would it do at the box office?

    • taw46 says:

      That is horrible. DM says they fear the building will collapse.

    • Venus says:

      Sad fact is that if authorities say this was electrical, accidental etc. I’m not going to believe this was anything but a terror attack via arson.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Unless that hotel was made of paper mache, I’m calling terror too. Even the jet fueled twin towers fires were contained to a few floors out of over a hundred.

    • taw46 says:

      Does it work both ways? West get to take back everything it invented, no one else gets to use it?

    • Venus says:

      Those assholes need to go back to their corrupt, third world shit holes and live without electricity, TV, AC, computers, phones, etc and I will fucking CONSIDER their request.

      Also, PS: That Hamilton play is a prime example of cultural appropriation. POC want to pretend they have a connection to the geniuses who founded this country when in fact while Hamilton was writing what became the Federalist Papers, POC were were living in fucking huts and selling their ‘brothers’ into slavery.

      the Twitter comments are hilarious

      So it wasn’t the Russians after all. {eye roll} The Democrats are fucking crazy to keep spanking the Russian monkey.

    • The Democratic Party is in the worst shape of its modern history. The presidency of Barack Obama papered over the fact that the party was being hollowed out from below. Over Obama’s two terms, Democrats ceded 13 governorships to the GOP and stumbled from controlling six in 10 state legislatures to now barely one in three. Across federal and state government, Democrats have lost close to 1,000 seats. There are only six states where Democrats control both the legislature and the governor’s mansion.

      More troubling: Even amid the great upwelling of anti-Trump resistance, Democratic favorability ratings have continued to tumble since Election Day – to just 40 percent in a May Gallup poll. “Our negatives are almost as high as Trump’s, as far as party goes,” says Rep. Tim Ryan, a rugged Ohio Democrat serving Youngstown. Ryan led an unsuccessful 63-vote insurgency against House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in November because, he says, “We weren’t winning.”

      There is no official accounting for this erosion of power and popularity. Unlike the GOP in the aftermath of Mitt Romney’s 2012 defeat, Democrats have not published post-mortems. But get party insiders talking – with anonymity exchanged for candor – and there’s little debate about how the party went sideways.

      Responsibility rests foremost at the feet of former President Barack Obama. As a candidate, Obama sidestepped the party’s next-in-line culture, riding into the White House on the strength of a then-revolutionary digital-and-grassroots machinery of his own creation. “Obama was almost like the anti-Democrat,” a former DNC chair tells Rolling Stone. “The president didn’t care about the Democratic Party.”

      Once in office, Obama had the weight of the world to bear. He staved off financial collapse and secured health insurance for an estimated 20 million Americans, leveraging the party’s infrastructure for these fights. “When you’re at the head of the DNC and you have the White House,” says Sen. Tim Kaine, who chaired the party from 2009 to 2011, “a lot of the job is about promoting the president’s agenda.” But Obama and his team neglected a far less heroic duty: the care and feeding of the national party, which Democrats had rebuilt during the Bush years with a “50-state strategy” that had empowered Obama with dominant Democratic majorities in Congress.

      […]

      The 50-state strategy devolved under Obama into a presidential-battleground strategy, leaving state parties starved for cash and leadership. “Obama didn’t put resources into local parties unless it was for his re-election effort,” says the former party chair. Making matters worse: Obama tapped ambitious Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz – a favorite of White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett – to run the DNC in 2011. “That congresswoman had no idea what she was doing,” adds the former chair.

      Wasserman Schultz went rogue. In a rift with the White House that spilled into a story on Politico, she was criticized for using the DNC as a vehicle for self-promotion, hoping the office would serve as a springboard into House leadership. The White House made overtures to oust Wasserman Schultz, but she dug in, promising an ugly fight that could tar the president as both anti-woman and anti-Semitic. (Wasserman Schultz, who was forced to resign in the aftermath of the Russian hack of the DNC, declined to participate in this story.)

      Obama dodged that fight, and instead fostered Organizing for Action, the grassroots group born of his campaigns. “They had a mirror organization that did just their politics, and it weakened the DNC,” says a source in House leadership. “It directed money elsewhere and was not in the interest of the long-term stability [of the party]. It was a selfish strategy.”

      The hobbled DNC’s chief remaining value was as a fundraising vehicle. For Obama, it “was like his ATM – and Clinton was the same,” says the former chair. Clinton pioneered a strategy that allowed her largest donors to give $10,000 to each of 32 state parties participating in her Victory Fund. But that money didn’t stay in the states. Instead, nearly every penny was hoovered up to the DNC for the benefit of Clinton’s election.

      Clinton today says she found the DNC to be a liability. In an onstage interview at a Recode tech conference in May, Clinton recalled, “I get the nomination. . . . I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party. It was bankrupt. . . . I had to inject money into it – the DNC – to keep it going.” Clinton then raised eyebrows by indicting the DNC’s data, which the party had inherited from the Obama re-election campaign. “Its data was mediocre to poor, nonexistent, wrong,” Clinton said. (The DNC’s former data chief hit back, tweeting that Clinton’s broadside was “fucking bullshit,” but declined to be interviewed.)

      Under Obama, the party infrastructure was honed to elect a president. And being a presidential party is a powerful thing – until you lose the White House. The Clinton campaign lost significantly on its own merits, though the party is loath to admit it. The same candidate who was caught flat-footed by the rise of Obama in 2008 found herself stunned by the grassroots surge behind Sen. Bernie Sanders. “And she was really surprised by how strong Trump was – and part of it was she just sucked,” says the Democratic strategist, who criticizes Clinton despite being entrenched in her center-left, pro-trade wing of the party. “At a really fundamental level we gotta get people to acknowledge what a fucking piece of shit her campaign was, because Donald Trump should not have won this election.” The strategist adds, “Yes, Comey happened. And yes, the Russians happened. But she had more money than God, and they spent all of it trashing him and not actually rebutting his ideological agenda.” By transforming the election into a referendum on character, Team Clinton let Trump off the hook as the frontman for the extremist GOP platform. “The country’s waking up shocked to what he’s doing because Hillary didn’t actually explain to anybody what he was going to do when he became president,” the strategist says. “We focused on him groping people – and not on him saying he was going to end our alliance with Europe or he was going to strip health care. It was an amazing failure of our politics to make our case.”

        I hope Bernie forms his own new party. The free stuff party.

      • DandyTIger says:

        As much as I think Obama was an epic failure, well, he was, I don’t actually blame him for the Dem party demise. That’s 100% on them, their choices, their ideology of victimhood, and identity politics. They embraced an ideology that Obama took advantage of to become president and to twist the party to his bidding. They enabled that by their choices. Suckers.

  24. DandyTIger says:

    Virginia primary results are in. The GOP establishment guy Gillespie won. And on the Dem side, a surprise to me, the Sanders and Warren backed Perriello lost to Northam. The latter race may say something about Dems pushing back against the further left crazies.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’m worried about the Northam win, he ran a pretty hostile anti-Trump campaign which may have rallied the base. It’s going to be a red hot campaign season, the Dems need this win.

    As its 4 a m and my friend insomnia has stopped by I figured I’d let my three brain cells run loose on the state of Dims.
    I think they have become too intertwined with Hollywood.
    Drunk on fame and confused as to how Joe average feels about the idols.
    Meryl Streep was beyond offensive.
    There was a movie many moons ago with I think Dudley Moore and Daryl Hannah called Crazy People. An ad exec has a breakdown and begins using honesty. Toshiba for electronics because caucasians are too damn big.
    What I sense is the dims were to dependent on focus group style marketing. I have friends from the Mainline who think race in terms of Michael Brown. Black people are dirt poor or very wealthy. They ignore the vast middle class. I think they are condescending. Would Mad max be allowed to act like a cukuu bird if she were white. I grew up in a barely majority black town 51/49. We used every nasty word on each other. I was a mick. My mom converted when she met my dad. It seems so silly now, but the more genteel Methodists looked down on the rambunctious big Catholic families.
    I think about Zora Neale Hurston when I hear media playing race card. The powers that be destroyed her. Their Eyes Were Watching God did not fit the victim narrative. They did everything to destroy her. She was accused of child molestation.

    The Russia meme was doomed from the get go. I think you have to be at least 65 to think of the evil red empire. I have heard my mom talking about getting under desk. USSR is but a glint. Then they trot out that doddering fool McCain to augment.
    The Russians did it seems more Austin Powers than James Bond.
    Blaming everyone else is like living with an addict. It is never ever their fault. The bus was late so after two stints at rehab I had to go into a bar and get tanked at noon. The buses fault.
    Also what did hillary have nearly 30 years in public eye and she could not be consistent. Too many Hillarys. I think she should have been cut throat bitch. Back in 2008 I liked tough Hillary. Sexism charge holds no weight when she was presenting herself in a new manner each day. Bill also looks like a cadaver. Sex stuff in the 90’s for me didn’t seem so bad when slick willy was robust looking. This gaunt dude puts it in a different light. Its perception, now he is dirty old man. She had a billion dollar campaign. Who thought creepy Kaine with his pot belly was going to appeal to anyone.

    Last random thought as I think OTC sleeping aid is kicking in. Since Oprah ended her show the studios keep trying to replicate. They keep failing in epic ways. Anderson Cooper??? Vieara?
    I think Joanna from HGTV. You want to know her. Afternoons she is someone you would welcome into your home. Just a thought.

    McAuliffe looks past the Clintons, toward 2020

    The Virginia governor is revving up his fundraising machine to boost Democrats­and his own prospects.

    • DeniseVB says:

      McAulliffe hasn’t been a bad governor, it’s just that he has those oily Clinton fingerprints all over him. She did win Virginia 😦

      • Dora says:

        Don’t know much about his role as governor, but back in 2000, when Hillary was still First Lady, McAulliffe quietly purchased the house in Chappaqua for the Clintons so that Hillary could claim residence and pretend to be a New Yorker for that year’s Senate race. I can’t quite forgive him for that.

    one other rep said a man came up to him as he was leaving the practice and asked if it was dems or rep who were on the field.

    with all the hate broadcast now and the level of violence being acceptable now, what did anyone expect to happen.
    a so called comic thinks showing the beheaded head of a president is is funny and ok, a play that shows the killing of a president and his wife is just fine. You have fruitcakes calling for violence and no one calls them on it. What the Hell did anyone really expect?
    As Ron Paul said , if it had not been for the Capitol Police who were guarding Mr Scalise it would have been a massacre.

    on another note
    my youngest grand daughter is waiting to be called after passing the testing for the Capitol Police. It could be her someday protecting someone and a fruitcake egged on by the atmosphere of hatred shooting her.

    two reps shot
    Williams from Texas and Scalise from La.
