El Paso Fire Department confirms:

Trump rally - 6,500
Beto rally - 10,000-15,000

The Senate Intelligence Committee issued a report that there’s no evidence of collusion in their investigation. People are up in arms and seem cynical, but no noise has been made from Dems on the committee like the Nunes antics provoked. Best case scenario is that it’s a con/placation for Trump to not know the truth.

Mueller, however, might have hard collusion evidence:

Mulvaney getting honest about Republicans blocking Obama from any political wins:

http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/02/r...a-lie.html

Quote:White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, appearing on Fox News Sunday, repeated the official administration line that Democrats had to choose between legislation and investigation. Chris Wallace reminded Mulvaney that he had supported a Republican Congress that had engaged in continuous investigations of the White House, reopening probes to chase conspiracy theories even after they had been conclusively debunked.

This prompted Mulvaney to make an interesting confession. The Republican Congress never wanted to pass laws in the first place:

WALLACE: You were there, of what the Republicans did to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on Benghazi, on Fast and Furious. And they got some things done despite the fact that these were aggressive partisan investigations.

MULVANEY: Well, we didn’t get very much done. Listen, I’ll be the first to admit that when the tea party wave, of which I was one, got here in 2011, the last thing we were interested in was giving President Obama legislative successes.

When somebody says “I’ll be the first to admit,” it’s usually an idiom, suggesting they are not trying to hide a fact that is widely known and frequently confessed. But in this case the sentence construction makes more sense if read literally. Mulvaney may actually be the first person to admit that congressional Republicans did not want to give Obama any legislative successes at all.

Mitch McConnell boasted that he pressured Republicans to refuse to compromise with any of the Obama administration’s priorities in his first two years (“We worked very hard to keep our fingerprints off of these proposals. Because we thought — correctly, I think — that the only way the American people would know that a great debate was going on was if the measures were not bipartisan.”).

Yet after Republicans won control of Congress on the shoulders of a tea party wave of debt hysteria in 2010, a conventional wisdom took hold that President Obama needed to get Republicans to make a deal. Most outside observers conceded that the congressional GOP might not be the easiest negotiating counterparty. Still, Obama was widely held to bear a share of the blame for his inability to get Republicans to make a deal. He didn’t play enough golf with them, or drink enough with them, or “lead.” The idea that Obama could and should force Republicans to make deals with him was pure conventional wisdom for years on end.

As a high-profile link between the Obama-era Republican Congress and the Trump administration, Mulvaney has retrospectively clarified a lot of points people refused to understand at the time. Mulvaney casually confessed last week that nobody cares about the deficit. Mulvaney of course spent the Obama era claiming to care about the deficit a lot — so much, indeed, that he was willing to shut down the government or even default on the national debt in order to reduce it. The debt hysteria was manufactured to cover a different agenda. Republicans wanted to force Obama to reduce popular domestic spending programs so they could cut taxes for the affluent. But since neither cutting retirement programs nor reducing taxes for the rich are popular goals, Republicans framed their policy as “deficit reduction,” and the debt-scold community and most of the mainstream news media took this framing at face value.

CNN aired a town hall debate for Schultz last night and, shockingly, he actually has no ideas for anything. Here's him talking about how to fix the VA:

“I will fix the VA,” Howard Schultz says.

Ok. How?

“First off, diagnose the problem. We have layers and layers of government bureaucracy…I will fix the VA. It’s about leadership and temperament…I promise you. I will fix the VA.”

I know I know... this is likely small potatoes. Its clear to pretty much everyone that Schultz sucks and isn't getting very far, but I'm endlessly pissed how legitimate grassroots candidates with great ideas have such a hard time breaking into the mainstream and this fucking doofus gets the red carpet primetime treatment from CNN because money.

Well, from that short little snippet he sounds exactly like Trump-- perhaps minus the syphilitic brain rot. So maybe he'll eat into his voters, not the Dem candidate?

He'll only eat into Trump's base if he is as outwardly hateful and racist, which I don't think he will be.

But you're right. He's less deranged and less orange, but he talks like Trump, he thinks like Trump, he fucking whines like Trump.

Sounding like Trump is only half the battle. You also need to be as cravenly beholden to Russian criminals as Trump, and as clearly bad for America's standing in the world as him, in order to secure the support of their extensive espionage and propaganda apparatus. And you need to be enough of a carnival barker that all media outlets can't look away from you, even while they don't take your seriously.

Trump is the total package, baby.

This is why these 'highly successful' businesspeople make TERRIBLE political leaders. Their attitude is that they're smart enough to figure it all out later. The problem is that if you're a rich asshole and a business fails, you can golden parachute out without much consequence. If a business folds, something else will take it's place eventually. If you do that with government, society falls apart.

Eh, doesn't sound any worse than the bowling alley or movie theater, really.  Granted, everything involving Trump and golf is extra irritating because of his flagrant, gratuitous lies about how Obama played too much golf and he would never play golf as president, he would be far too busy, etc.

I’m having a convo with a friend who just suggested a GTA VI in Florida and the idea of them doing a Trump simulator antagonist and being able to maim MAGA hats and alt-righters is just the greatest.

A White House security specialist is seeking official whistleblower protection after raising concerns about “unwarranted security clearances" for administration officials, including Jared Kushner:

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/nationa...d_ms_tw_ma

Quote:A White House security specialist is seeking official whistleblower protection from the federal government after raising concerns about “unwarranted security clearances" for administration officials, including Jared Kushner, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

The specialist, Tricia Newbold, filed the whistleblower complaint less than two weeks after she was suspended without pay for defying her supervisor, Carl Kline.

The complaint, which was obtained by NBC News, alleges Newbold raised concerns with Kline about a security clearance for an individual as early as July 2017. The complaint does not identify the person, but sources familiar with the situation told NBC News that it was Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and adviser.

In the complaint, Newbold says Kline "repeatedly mishandled security files and has approved unwarranted security clearances."

The complaint says that on July 18, 2017, Newbold emailed Kline about “potential derogatory information” related to the individual that could impact his security clearance. At the time, Kushner had interim security clearance and his FBI investigation was ongoing, according to sources familiar with the situation.

Newbold’s complaint explains that standard procedure would be to call in the employee and discuss the negative information, which in this case had already been deemed to be “credible." Newbold’s complaint alleges that Kline refused to do so and instead suggested he “was going to wait until the [FBI] investigation was completed.”
