Nobody takes Devin Nunes seriously. He’s become the butt of jokes. Much of what has been in the dossier has been confirmed by either the FBI or the intelligence community. However since facts aren’t something that you seem to care for I’m not suprised to see you getting excited over yet another scam from Devin Nunes.

Hey, it doesn’t matter if some of the dossier is true, and it doesn’t matter if Russians interfered with the election, it only matters that it reflects badly on an intemperate buffoon.o

Pretty much. And the entire GOP that has enabled the intemperate buffoon.

Virtually nothing is VERIFIED BY THE FBI per their own words. Hillary AND the FBI paid for it! It was a hit piece. I think the FBI takes Nunes seriously as does anyone trying to get to the truth. Why have some many FBI folks been fired and reassigned if these pristine paragons of virtue were not as crooked as a dog’s hind leg?! Uh Caroline, just watch Tuesday. You can then join the #Walkaway movement like most honest liberals!

Hey dtm, I try to stay away from fever swamps both left and right, while you appear to be plugged in to this walkaway thing. How about a little help so I can get my expectations in order? Would you say the idea that million of donks are closer than ever to embracing all that’s Trump is closer to Jade Helm or Comet Pizza? Or does it rest on belief in a bigger and dirtier conspiracy, such as millions of undocumented voters or Hillary killing Vince Foster? Thanks in advance.

Virtually nothing is VERIFIED BY THE FBI per their own words. Except the central premise of the Steele Dossier: Russia engaged in an elaborate operation to interfere with the U.S. election to the benefit of Donald Trump and the detriment of Hillary Clinton. Note, this has also been corroborated by the Senate Foreign Intelligence Committee, the CIA, the NSA, the Department of Defense, and every US intelligence agency. Notwithstanding this very obvious error on your part, you’ve also ignored that the FISA warrant for Carter Page was obtained on much more than just the Steele Dossier and required a probable… Read more »

Nope. http://www.newsweek.com/trump-russia-dossier-one-year-later-what-we-know-777116 Some of the dossier has been verified by either the FBI or Mueller or the intelligence community. Clapper just said the other day that he thought the majority of the dossier had been verified. The FBI did not pay for it. Fusion GPS is te one that was doing the dossier and it was started by the Washington Free Beacon an conservative media entity. Hillary later hired Fusion GPS and then continued the dossier. Nunes himself is probably in trouble hence his erratic behavior and Trump apologia. You have to remember Nunes was on the transition team which… Read more »

In Fulton County anyway, this would be one of those opportunities for Dems to pull an R ballot since the only thing on the D ballot is school super and a judge, and not many people will be able to distinguish between those candidates. Problem is, Kemp isn’t enough of a freak (for some people) to be an automatic loser to Stacey, so it’s risky. On the other hand, not sure if there would be much difference (from my perspective) to have a Gov. Kemp or Gov. Cagle, so maybe not much downside after all. I wonder who Barrow has… Read more »

If a Republican is going to win, I’d prefer Kemp to Cagle.

A bumbling idiot is vastly preferable to someone shamelessly beholden to the lobbyists and power brokers that have facilitated his rise from college dropout to Lt. Governor.

If you voted D in the primary, you can’t vote R in the primary runoff. Yet another reason that primaries should be nonpartisan. It is very likely that Georgia’s next governor will be decided by a single digit percentage of its voters.

I’m going to pull out my National Genealogical Society creds for this one. Brief explainer, there are four base DNA definers for heredity. For simplicity, we will refer to them as European, African, Eurasian and Asian. Every DNA can be traced to one or more of these bases. Note there is not DNA base for North or South America. Migration of Asian and European DNA are the foundations of any Western Hemisphere civilizations. Defining if a person is of Native American decent is dependent on how removed is a sample and the number these samples with matching points in a… Read more »

My guess is no. In the case of most people (including you and me), your understanding of who you are and what your heritage is based on what your parents or other relatives told you. Example, my grandmother was told she lost her part of her grandparents family farm when it was sold after her grandmother’s death because her mother had died when she was 9 and the remaining living siblings spilt it up between themselves. This has been the known truth in my family. Until last December when I found the probate record of my Great Great Grandmother’s will… Read more »

The demagogue doesn’t lead radicals, he radicalizes his supporters. With each outrage he drags them down by association until they feel they have no one else, and no one else will have them.

Dude, you obviously cannot read a calendar. The Women’s March was after the inauguration. Frankly I’m laughing at conservatives who think this week is going to be something else.

It’ll be Barrett. Looking forward to seeing Y’all try and Bork a woman with seven kids! And then Trump gets another pick within a year! “Hey, hey…ho ho, Roe, Roe…is gonna go!

Caroline
Caroline

What is your solution to overturning Roe then? Are you going to put women and doctors in jail? What are the stances of Kemp and Cagle? Are they going to give women the death penalty? Public hanging? Are they going to be checking women at the airport coming in from other states? No more hiding for GOP governors. What exactly do you and others plan to do? Women want to know exactly what extent GOP governors are going to go to and no evasions.

Andrew C. Pope
Andrew C. Pope

To be completely honest, if Roe is overturned abortion will be legal in some states and illegal in others. Women with means, like the mistresses of GOP fundraising chairmen, will be able to travel to California or New York to get an abortion. Women without will have to settle for coat hangers in alleyways like they did pre-Roe

Caroline
Caroline

Yes, that is why I said Kemp and Cagle need to answer questions about what they are going to do. No more evasions from the GOP. If they are going to completely ban abortion in GA what are going to be the consequences for women in GA who do have an abortion? What about women who throw themselves down stairs etc. and use coat hangers? What is the penalty for them?

downthemiddle
downthemiddle

Roe will not be repealed but even if it were, it would return to the states. Abortions should be available regardless. So I would go after the next straw man.

Caroline
Caroline

So you’re not going to answer my question. My question was directed AT the states specifically those running for governor here in GA. What are Cagle or Kemp going to do if Roe is overturned? They need to answer that question if it is going to be sent back to the states. No evasions like “abortions will still be available” because unless bordering states within driving distance keep it legal that evasion is not going to work. Are Cagle or Kemp going to outlaw abortion in GA and if they do what are the consequences? Are they going to put… Read more »

This week should be like the last 52 or more. Anyone can see this is a hose job from day. This will be more proof of it. This week is different in that Trump gets another Supreme Court pick. Could you imagine a million conservative buffoons protesting to demand Barak’s impeachment before he was elected? What would the liberal reaction be? Gulags?

What day was the inauguration and what day was the Women’s March?

One day apart. So that means many of protesting warriors were traveling to impeach him before he even took office. That was my point. Or if a local was demanded his impeachment the next day, what could Trump possibly have done in 12 hours to have a million libs demanding his impeachment? I will say your buddy Strok, who was in charge of the Trump Investigation was demanding his impeachment even 6 -12 months earlier!! He was even faster that the vagina hat wearing protesters!

not prosecuted for abusing their positions of power

Speaking of not prosecuting someone for abusing their position of power, how’s your boy Jim Jordan doing? I’m sure Noway’s already lining up to take the same “actually moleststion isnt bad” stance he always does.

A strong female candidate for the Supreme Court will likely be nominated

Not looking likely.

I suggest not reading the papers or watching any news channels

Quite frankly, it’s really symbolic of the hollowing out of the GOP. The intellectual arguments for conservative policies have given way to “trolling the libs” and a bunch of culture war b.s.

Again, you ignore the fact that Stzok has called for his previous testimony to be publicly released but the GOP refuses to do so. Why is that? It is because whatever he says is going to collapse the Peter Stzok conspiracy theory mill would be my guess. For a quarter of a century wait until X happens has been the mantra of the GOP.
