  • Trump says he wants a sit-down with Mueller

    President Trump said Thursday that he wants to sit for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, which is investigating Russian election meddling and possible collusion with his campaign. “Yes. I would like to. I would like to,” he said in response to a reporter’s question during a White House event announcing tariffs on China. Team Trump has ping-ponged about whether the president would agree to an interview. The president in the past has said he would like to, but has also called for Mueller’s probe to be shut down, as has his ex-lawyer John Dowd, who quit on...
  • The Social-Media Panic

    03/20/2018 11:35:56 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 8 replies
    All that matters to the center-Left is whether Silicon Valley will keep them in power. ‘Make no mistake: 2016 will never happen again.” Historians are not always reliable predictors of the future, but Niall Ferguson’s analysis of how Silicon Valley and the center-Left would react to the successive and surprise victories of Brexit and Donald Trump is proving correct. Conservatives and populists will not be allowed to use the same tools as Democrats and liberals again, or at least not use them effectively. Silicon Valley is working with its media and governmental critics to limit the damage to the center-Left...
  • NYC might get nearly a foot of snow from another nor’easter

    03/20/2018 8:00:11 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 26 replies
    On the first day of spring, the fourth nor’easter in a month is barreling toward the Big Apple, where it is expected to dump as much as 10 inches of snow and disrupt travel Wednesday. A winter storm warning is in effect from 12 a.m. Wednesday until 8 a.m. Thursday, with heavy snow and winds of about 45 mph expected, according to AccuWeather. “The wintry mix during the evening commute will change to all snow overnight (Wednesday) as the temperatures fall to the upper 20s,” AccuWeather meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said. The snow will intensify during the day Wednesday and is...
  • Self-driving vehicles.... dangerous?

    03/20/2018 6:32:48 AM PDT · by a little elbow grease · 160 replies ^ | 03/20/2018 | self
    Now that an Arizona woman was killed after being struck by a self-driving Uber vehicle many questions come to mind not that they shouldn’t.We live in Pittsburgh, lots of hills, and lots of snow and ice.There are times when we have difficulty controlling a car in those conditions (our weather forecast is for 6 inches of snow later today and tonight). A couple months ago my wife, after driving to and from work in terrible road conditions, wondered how a self-driving car would handle it. What do you think of these self-driving cars navigating snow and ice?

    I walked by the television this morning and saw Trump's picture and the block letters "FACEBOOK SCANDAL" in red on a blue background. The sound was turned down, but the earnest-appearing, attractive young woman in a tight black form fitting dress was clearly portraying the appropriate gravity for this "situation". It was the same thing I saw last night before going to bed, an older, serious looking man with a similar backdrop and identical grave look on his face. Again, the sound was turned down, but it is clear there is a real problem in American society right now. And...
  • 5 things to watch for in the Illinois primary

    03/20/2018 5:15:13 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 7 replies
    In one of ABC News’ “18 for '18” races, the fight for the identity of the Democratic Party between its progressive and establishment wings has spilled into Illinois 3rd Congressional District where Blue Dog Democrat Dan Lipinski is facing a challenge from activist Marie Newman, who has the backing of Sen. Bernie Sanders, EMILY's List and a handful of labor groups. Money has dominated the high-profile gubernatorial primaries in the state — $100 million has been spent already on the Republican and Democratic sides. Gov. Bruce Rauner, likely the most vulnerable GOP incumbent governor in the nation, has been dogged...

  • Fmr Clinton Pollster Mark Penn: Conor Lamb Came Out Against Nancy Pelosi and Won

    03/19/2018 7:15:12 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 36 replies
    Former Clinton pollster Mark Penn weighed in on Pennsylvania’s 16th congressional district special election result, crediting Rep.-elect Conor Lamb’s (D-PA) victory to the candidate going against the far left like Nancy Pelosi. “[A]fter so much talk that the party was moving to Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders [the special Pennsylvania congressional election] really reaffirms the power of a centrist Democrat,” Penn told New York AM 970 radio’s “The Cats Roundtable” host John Catsimatidis. “I mean, Conor Lamb really took a lot of centrist positions. He backed a lot of what President Trump was saying. And he came out explicitly against...

    “Last week, Florida’s legislature overwhelmingly voted for permanent Daylight Saving Time for the State of Florida,” said Rubio. “Reflecting the will of the Sunshine State, I proudly introduce these bills that would approve Florida’s will and, if made nationally, would also ensure Florida is not out of sync with the rest of the nation.”Er, Marco, afaik Gov. Scott has yet to take action on the bill.The article states that DST "Benefits the economy""Benefits the agricultural economy""Reduces car crashes and car wrecks involving pedestrians""Reduces childhood obesity"bring "Increased physical fitness"and bring a "Positive impact on wildlife conservation"ff
  • The ‘Enthusiasm Gap’ Could Turn A Democratic Wave Into A Tsunami

    03/15/2018 5:19:57 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 58 replies
    It’s a busy time of year, so we’ll keep this relatively short. But I wanted to echo and underscore a point made by FiveThirtyEight contributor Nathaniel Rakich in his article on Tuesday’s special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District. One reason that the results are especially scary for Republicans — Democrat Conor Lamb is the apparent winner1 in a district that President Trump won by 20 percentage points — is because it came on reasonably high turnout, the sort of turnout one might expect in this year’s midterms. As of early Wednesday morning, about 228,000 votes had been counted in...

  • Game Over For Toys R Us: Chain Going Out Of Business

    03/14/2018 4:58:16 PM PDT · by Java4Jay · 84 replies
    The chain — whose history traces back to a post-World War II baby furniture store — has spent many decades as the country's largest dedicated toy emporium. Today's parents are the millennial generation who grew up with the Internet and approach purchasing decisions and time they spend with children differently from baby boomers. Generally, foot traffic is falling at brick-and-mortar stores. And children are playing differently than they used to decades ago.

    I was born and raised in Southern Nevada. I remember it to be a free place, but the area is "Sin City." Since moving from there, I've become a Christ follower. But now I'm in the Godless, anti-gun, anti-Liberty, illegal-alien-loving slave state of California. I've been hatching a plot to escape: Wifey, son and I move to Southern Nevada and get our main place. (Wifey doesn't want the cold or super rural-ness of the north east.) Then we buy a mountain cabin in Northern Nevada where my son and I can travel to often to live as free men to...
  • Why It Doesn't Matter Who the Winner Is in PA-18

    03/14/2018 6:27:30 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 69 replies
    As of this writing, Democrat Conor Lamb is clinging to a lead of roughly 600 votes in the special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District. There are probably not enough uncounted votes out there for Republican Rick Saccone to pull out the win. It also really doesn’t matter much, one way or the other (unless you are a Democrat living in the 18th who feels strongly about having a Democrat represent you in Washington). Here’s why: The House is increasingly polarized. There was a time that a narrowed House majority for a party would make for interesting politics in Washington,...

    Hope you're all staying warm this Ides of March? A bit chilly where you are? I suspect Algore is becoming a tad frosty AND grumpy since his Globalist, NWO GLOBALONEY WARMING SCAM is falling apart before his eyes. Not to worry about old Al. The $500 million or so he's scammed over the years will allow him to stay snug - not to mention crazy - as the proverbial bedbug he's become.

  • National school walkout -- further politicizing schools (vanity)

    The national school walkout, supposedly to remember the 17 students killed in Florida, but really to push for gun control, is scheduled for 10am Wednesday. My children attend public schools in Massachusetts (yeah, I know), and both the middle school and high school are interrupting the school day to let students walk out. What are schools in your area doing? I bet schools will not allow students to miss school for all political protests (pro-life march or Trump campaign rally, anyone?), so they are taking sides on political issues. This is not new, but it is pretty blatant. It won't...
  • Stormy Daniels ready to go on the record about alleged Trump affair

    The lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels said she engaged in a sexual relationship with President Trump in 2006 and is looking to tell the truth about the encounter. Michael Avenatti, appearing on NBC’s “Today” show on Wednesday, was asked whether Trump and Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, had an affair. He said, “Yes.” “She’s looking to disclose the truth about what happened,” Avenatti said. “At this point, in light of the amount of misinformation that Mr. Cohen has put out there to the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post and others, I think it’s time for her...

    The grammar, punctuation, syntax, and spelling in our country are nothing less than dreadful. And our youth don’t have a monopoly on this. It includes major media figures, political leaders, public spokespersons of major corporations, organizations, and the clergy. Examples: * Its a beautiful thing. Sorry—IT’S A BEAUTIFUL THING. * We visited many country’s. Sorry—WE VISITED MANY COUNTRIES. Simple plural, no need for a possessive or apostrophe. * Attorney-Generals. Sorry—it’s ATTORNEYS-GENERAL, just like MOTHERS-IN-LAW. * We’re going to visit the Stewart’s. Sorry—WE’RE GOING TO VISIT THE STEWARTS. This is but a small smattering of the grammatical errors I see and...
