Re: “Cory Gardner sides with (gasp) Nancy Pelosi on the shutdown

Is Gardner in support of mandatory e-Verify? I don't know his politics. Many left of Pelosi feel that illegal immigration is exploitation and suppresses wages. Wages haven't kept up with inflation, even with min wage increases. Maybe a 2.5B "fence" and 2.5B mandatory e-Verify implementation is a good deal?

Re: “Michael Cohen admits to lying in a rare win for truth in TrumpWorld

Yep, we need to eliminate all of these lying politicians.

Elizabeth Warran: I'm native American!
Hillary Clintons: There were no Classified emails!
Bill Clinton: I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky!
Barak Obama: You can keep your own doctor!
Dozens of Dems who once insisted we needed to fund a border wall, until Trump wanted it too...

Re: “Michael Cohen admits to lying in a rare win for truth in TrumpWorld

How do we know he isn't lying now? The best way to not overreact to this is to assume he is always lying. His convictions were for crimes he committed on his own, far removed from his client, Trump. Are all of Michael Avenatti's clients being held accountable for Stormy Daniels lies?

Re: “Bold Hickenlooper asks court to clarify tax-killing laws

Just what Polis would love...unlimited taxing authority to implement his version of a government-driven California-like utopia. A disaster for the tax-paying public to be certain.

Re: “Pelosi attackers miss the big picture

Hi rightsavage:

I think you are an example of the dangers of a little education. You hear something from your idols, like Rush Limbaugh, or on Faux News, that is technically correct (yes, we are a constitutional republic) but then you run with it, pretending to school us all, smugly, with your new-found knowledge. (Don't you hate it when ivory tower libs do that to you? And yet here you are, endeavoring to do it!)

Anyway, you should dive a little deeper into "democracy" and the different ways in which it is, quite correctly, used in different contexts and conversation. In fact, I'm sure you'd be shocked to find that the twin notions of American Political Theory have long had us coming down on the side of Liberal Democratic Theory, as opposed to Radical (i.e. the Jeffersonian Yeoman Farmer, communal type). How do like them apples? *Liberal* Democratic Theory! Doesn't that word "liberal" scare you? LOL! And to think, that is what we are.

And no, this isn't some new-found transmogrification of meaning. Indeed, the term "liberal", as used in current, common parlance, is the perversion. And no, we don't (or shouldn't) qualify it as "classical" or otherwise. These are all dances engaged in to deal with those who have a little education to make them dangerous. Like you. But I digress.

In short, yes, we live in a democracy, of the constitutional republic type (and even that can be argued, as a matter of fact, if not law). Get over yourself. And quit telling people what to call our country. You don't have the authority to enforce your dictate. You'd do better to ask, politely.

You stand corrected.

We dont have a democracy. It is a constitutional republic. Stop calling our country a democracy.

Re: “The election is finally over, and now we know just how divided we really are

Mike probably got his information about the video from his fake news masters. I have watched the original and the "doctored" video and they did nothing to it to change how it looked except to zoom in. Even in the original video it is very clear that Acosta did put his hands on her.

Re: “The election is finally over, and now we know just how divided we really are

"And then the White House takes away Acostas press pass, but only after sending out an edited video making it seem as if he had placed his hands on a White House intern. He hadnt." - Mike Littwin

Umm. no. The "edited" video simply zoomed in. The video on CSPAN showed exactly the same thing. Acosta very clearly put his hands on the woman trying to get the mic from him.

"Whatever you blame, though, you can pretty much say that Trumps election campaign was the first based on a full-out division "

Again, no. That would be Obama. But since the media fawned over Obama like he was the Messiah, you will never admit that Obama did more to divide the country than anyone since Lincoln.

Re: “The election is finally over, and now we know just how divided we really are

FYI- If the Intern didn't try to grab the mike out of his hand in the first place, we wouldn't even be discussing this incident. What right did she have to do that? Was that being civil to a member of the WH Press? NO, it was very disrespectful and TRUMP and company are out of control and need to grow tf up!

Re: “The election is finally over, and now we know just how divided we really are

You people are such liars and hypocrites. Jim Acosta did put his hands on the intern and no the video was not edited. Democrats and their lapdog media are respinsible for the deep divisions and hatred in this country. Obama was never disrespected and treated THIS badly during his term once agsin proving democrats have no class, no shame and no moral compass. God bless you.

Re: “A nation mourns Tree of Life victims while Trump continues to spread hate

Mr. Shirley, you missed the whole point of the column, which is that the president does not care about the victims, even though he did make a show of going to Pittsburgh.

And if the President hadn't gone to Pittsburgh, would you be writing a column on how he didn't care about those who were murdered?

Re: “What if the bombs had exploded?

"Completely ignoring the fact that Obama, Waters, Hillary, etc have all advocated using intimidation and even violence..."

Way to blame the victims! That is just another Trump lie that served to inflame the mad bomber wannabe and motivate him to send packages to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Maxine Waters, among others.

Re: “What if the bombs had exploded?

". But Trump is responsible for the language, the anger, the divisiveness, the scapegoating in our country. " - Mike Littwin

Completely ignoring the fact that Obama, Waters, Hillary, etc have all advocated using intimidation and even violence, groups like ANTIFA openly employ such tactics, and that people in the Trump admin have been sent ricin, vandalism against Republican candidates is well documented, as are physical attacks against Trump supporters.

The fact is the divisiness was caused in large part by Obama, not Trump.

And you wonder why people talk about "fake news", Mike Littwin? Take a nice long look in the mirror. It is because of people like you who blame Trump for stuff that your own side has been doing for many years.

Re: “What if the bombs had exploded?

They were too hoax devices. One of them had a goddamn alarm clock from amazon taped to it. No bomb maker would put a clock on a bomb this isnt the movies sweetheart you have been had.

Re: “Kavanaugh said ‘what goes around comes around.’ The midterms could prove him right.

How courteous of Mr. Foster to demonstrate the progressive way of thinking: if someone doesn't agree with you, don't bother discovering their reasons or anything. Just insult them. They probably deserve to be disparaged and dismissed anyway.

did anyone expect anything different with the p@$$y grabber in chief running this "reality show". poor poor old fart white guys... you have had it so tough...

Donnie dumpsterfire and his clan of teabilly nutjobs will stick together no matter what comes out... certainly a sexual assault or two is not going to make a difference to these alternative fact believing, putin, kim jung un and Nazi loving fools.

Re: “Kavanaugh said ‘what goes around comes around.’ The midterms could prove him right.

Great article.

Any thoughtful person knew this vote was along ideological lines and that the confirmation was a sure bet regardless of the dog and pony show televised to the country. And if you look at how senators voted, you'll see it was. Senator Murkowski, a Republican from Alaska, said she "would have" voted "No" but decided not to vote out of respect for another Pub senator who couldn't vote because he was at a wedding (respect?). One Dem, Manchin from West Virginia, voted "Yes." Just enough Dems, one in this case, aided the conservative cause. If they had needed two or three Dems, that would've happened as well.

Yes, there will be an investigation if Dems get the support they need in November. Perhaps we can get this serial sexual assaulter removed, charged, then convicted of his crimes and jailed.

"I'll be voting exclusively Republican..." Most stupid people do, because it relieves them of actually reading - and thinking - about the issues. It must be easy being a conservative...
