jury "nullification" for Trump in opposite direction then for OJ

what I worry about is jury nullification in Trump trials
like they did in Simpson trial - as a different juror then this stated quite matter of factly on a later interview

payback for Rodney King police getting off.

Obviously, what the prosecutors are counting on as we all can see.

Big on boasts, short on specifics
« Reply #1302 on: April 14, 2024, 10:32:53 AM »
So what would DJT do at this point other then tell us over and over again that this would NEVER have happened if he was President which is all hypothetical and conjecture and not factual reality?

He states Israel should finish the job ASAP but how much is he willing to commit to US assistance other then supplying arms?

Bottom line he is boasting big.

Questions remain.
I suspect he would not give too much space for Hamas and their Palestinian supporters (the majority)
I suspect he would not cave to the anti Zionists
I suspect he would do his best to supply arms etc.
I wonder if he would commit to any further US involvement.
Sounds to me like Biden has been ultimately supportive of Israel militarily but a failure on the PR front and caving into the anti-semites at home front.

Would DJT support a strike against Iran?

No one can say.

Ruminating about the windbag boasts of Trump.

author of article criticizing Trump about history is wrong about history

" A Civil War historian has called the remarks Donald Trump made about Gettysburg during a campaign rally "unhinged."

Writing on X, formerly Twitter, T.J. Stiles said the former president's take on the Battle of Gettysburg, which was fought between July 1-3, 1863, and killed an estimated 51,000 people, was "inarticulate" and "reductive."

51,000 people were NOT killed.  That is the number of total casualties.
In McPherson's 'Battle Cry of Freedom' he estimates that of total casualties during the Civil War battles that around ~ 15 % were deaths.
The rest of course wounded, missing, or captured.
Of course some of the missing were also actually killed vs deserters.

CCP:

I take something of a different tone here.

The man is dealing with a tidal wave of legal issues, including at present being required to be in court for a stalinesque show trial based upon a disgrace to America of a legal charge while being gagged by court order in front of a jury quite likely to convict regardless of the facts or the law all while running for president.

Actually, I find how he is holding up quite impressive.

I would like to know what DJT WOULD do in the situation in the Middle East.

His schtick is that this would never have happened because adversaries would be so terrified of his unpredictable behavior.

But we do not know that.
What would he do now?

"His schtick is that this would never have happened because adversaries would be so terrified of his unpredictable behavior.  But we do not know that."

Disagree.  We do know that.  He hit Iran hard with sanctions and withdrew from the JCPOA.  He killed Suleiman.  He killed Bagdaddy.  He killed 250 Wagners.  He sent 39 cruise missiles up Russia's ass in Syria between the main course and desert at Mar al Lago with Xi sitting right there.  He recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capitol.  He took down the ISIS Caliphate.  It is his work that changed the landscape in ways that set up things like this: https://www.dailywire.com/news/saudi-arabia-publicly-acknowledges-defending-israel-from-iranian-attacks-reports?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=benshapiro&fbclid=IwAR1ra5h-fBJ7tq8gNYhgWhQXtZYfgtJJnQqy8U6lrWKdXiJ8KAGwE4qqmK0

Seems to me like a pretty strong track record.

"What would he do now?"

He has said that Israel made a mistake by taking too long in Gaza.  Sounds to me like he is saying that Israel should have kept moving forward and not fallen pray to Magoo's dithering.  He would reimpose and enforce sanctions on Iran.  He would not give Israel excrement.

Great post. The actions described tell why Oct 7 might not have happened under Trump.  And the Russian Ukraine invasion.  The action against Soleimani means the next Soleimani must wonder if the next attack he orders will be his last.

Moving the embassy was bold.  Abraham Accords are game changing.

Just backing Israel verbally and in the phony UN is a major step up from what we have now.

We visited the beautiful Golden Gate bridge Sunday.  Yesterday it was blocked by "Free Palestine" protesters.  Good grief. Hope they don't block the airport today.

Whatever "Palestine" is, wouldn't throwing Hamas out be the first step?

In Florida, blocking traffic is against the law.

The Chicago convention will show what a mess the Dem party is. Besides the liberal Jews with no political home, are the gays excited about Jihadists taking over their party?

Biden is the nominee because:
a. He is a great President,
b. He is the only one who can beat Trump,
c. Democrats don't admit their mistakes, or
d. The Dem field is really that bad.

Correct answer IMHO is combination of c. and d.

Biden made a resurgence in (2) polls, which makes no sense,
but is trailing or tied in all swing states.
https://www.realclearpolling.com/latest-polls/election

Trump was campaigning in New Jersey this week, promising to expand the map.  (Make Biden come out.)

Trump could be competitive in MN if he solves the suburban voter deficiency.

Larry Hogan (R) (ino) leads by double digits in Maryland.  Manchin's seat is already lost. The next 5 flip opportunities favor Republicans. Potential gain for Republicans 7.  Potential loss for Democrats 7.  Total swing potential 14. The Senate is lost for Democrats, hopefully for a generation or more.

The Republicans House is a mess. Still it's hard to imagine if Trump is so bad that voters support Trump but swiing to Democrats for the House. Maybe in hope of divided power but it's the policies, not the man they favor. The country needs all 3 to get the policies changed, otherwise it is 2-4 more years of stagnation decline on the road to total destruction.

Money is an issue. Democrats know how to raise it.  Republicans only know how to alienate people with solicitation texts and emails every hour.

I will give but it would be nice if it was part of a coordinated effort, and if the money went to messaging swing voters, not just for more solicitation of more money from me.

Nice idea but it doesn't look like one additional law or funding will cause this administration to change its ways.

The Venezuelan who murdered Laken was on parole for reasons outside of the current law. So we pass more laws?

Impeachment had no effect.  We didn't even get a trial.

More like withhold all funding of everything until they do their job but obviously the majority aren't willing to go there.

off the top of my head I cannot think of any Cabinet member more derelict of duty, subverting existing law purposely to harm the country and its' citizens.

yet the Dems voted in lock step to allow this to continue.

and so did Murkowski in the first of two votes
or I think she did not vote or something like that.

I don't like Trump either (hell he should be up by 10), but it is time to face the music. He is the choice and  we need to save USA not as Mitt Romney wring our hands over decorum.

2024 Dr, Jill Stein, co-opting the protest movement
« Reply #1325 on: April 29, 2024, 07:54:14 AM »
https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2024/04/28/watch_police_use_force_while_arresting_green_party_presidential_candidate_jill_stein_at_pro-palestinian_protest.html

There is a video interview at the link.  Getting arrested might be her big break.  For a radical, she sounds quite reasonable.  Democrats, especially young Democrats, the 50% that support Hamas should take a look at her.  (I hope she divides the party and the Left vote.)

She isn't going away.  She isn't going to endorse Joe Biden in the end.

Like Ralph Nader in Florida in 2000, he said (paraphrasing), 'I didn't cost Al Gore the election.  Those weren't his votes I took.  They were my votes.'

This anti Israel movement is anti Netanyahu and equally anti Biden.

It's dangerous and sad for the country but division could be helpful in ending the reign of the Left.  Radicals and normal Democrats shouldn't be in the same party.  If Joe tries to be more centrist to win the center he will lose the Left.  They ca start saying 'uniparty'.

Recall how we watched the Republicans (in the House for example) struggle to keep  their members in line while Democrats all lined up behind Nancy Pelosi.

This threatens all that.

She rips into RFK as well, no ally there.

Jewish heritage, (Israel hater).  Way more articulate than Bernie Sanders.  Now she has an audience and an anti-war cause, speaking up against the crackdown on the college 'protests'.

https://en.wikipedia.org//wiki/Jill_Stein
In 1973, Stein graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College, where she studied psychology, sociology, and anthropology.[7] She then attended Harvard Medical School and graduated in 1979.[7] Stein practiced internal medicine for 25 years[8] at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Simmons College Health Center, and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, which are all located in the Boston area. She also served as an instructor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.[9]

If Trump wins Minnesota, formerly the most liberal state, this is officially a landslide.

Left site "538" reports Survey USA poll, likely voters, from earlier this month:
https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/polls/minnesota/
April 3-7
608   LV   
SurveyUSA
KSTP-TV (St. Paul, Minn.), KAAL-TV (Austin, Minn.), WDIO-DT (Duluth, Minn.)   Biden   44%

Biden   +2

Not a reliable poll but the trend is Trump.

Yes.

The black voice communicates to black voters that they are included, not as blacks but as AMERICANS and therefore the ad communicates to a race blind audience as well.

AND it prepares them for the calls that are coming.  GOTV (get out the vote) is a massive  and powerful operation of the government party,  uh Democrat party.  They think just getting blacks to vote gets their vote.  "If you ain't votin' for me then you ain't black."

But what if they answer that call with a little skepticism.  'Wait, you've been in power for how long, and you've done nothing for me but make things worse.  No school choice.  You re forgiving someone else's loans, subsidizing someone else's car, and building someone else's boondoggle.  Everything I want to buy costs more and you think that's a tax on someone else? 12 million illegals chasing the same jobs we want and you cancel the police to the point that one even reports crime in the neighborhood anymore, are you kidding?  I'm taking a look at Trump and the Republicans.

Blexit, it's not uncommon anymore for 'black' people to question and change long time voting habits.

Aren't most blacks 'working people?  Most don't have phony degrees in gender studies and the like. Their daughters are getting screwed by transgenders in their sports. Isn't this the group that Trump resonates with? 

Plus some identify with the persecution against Trump. They know someone who went to prison 13 years for smoking crack but hunter Biden runs free. Anyone can see that Trump is being targeted and it feels familiar if you look a little like the guy in your neighborhood that's been robbing houses or jacking cars, but it wasn't you.

If Democrats lose blacks and Hispanics, it's game, set, match, as we say on the court.

Start winning women in the suburbs and you won't need to worry about vote counting.

I warned that early polls are irrelevant but,

Some polls are too remarkable to not remark.

Incumbent president is polling at 30% in Nevada, a state he won 4 years ago. Down by double digits.

This is not a 'rematch'. This is a race based on a new set of facts.  Democrat policies suck.

2024, The view from the Left
« Reply #1342 on: May 14, 2024, 06:56:28 AM »
Alex Shephard, The New Republic

The problem is Joe.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/democrats-joe-biden-problem-202202644.html


What he identifies about the Dem problem leads right into where Republicans are failing and what they need to address on their side.

From the article:

"[Latest NYT poll] shows that the election is not a lost cause for the party. While the numbers for Biden specifically are terrible, other Democrats are performing quite well. In Nevada, where Biden is trailing Trump by 12 points, Democratic Senate nominee Jackie Rosen is narrowly leading her Republican opponent. In Pennsylvania, where Biden trails Trump by three points, Democrat Bob Casey has a five-point lead. In Arizona, Biden lags Trump by seven points, while Democrat Ruben Gallego leads by five."


[Doug]  Isn't this strange, Trump is more popular than Republicans in general.  That is the exact opposite of what we are constantly told.

IMHO, it's too easy for Republicans to blame Joe.  The problems we face come from the whole litany of Democrat policies.  The whole Dem Congress is to blame, but blame isn't being passed around as it should.

Each individual Dem candidate in a swing district or swing state separates him or herself from the party and runs as an independent voice, which is nonsense.  Look at their voting record.  They've been voting for reckless spending and everything else as a unified block.  They all deserve full blame, even new candidates who want to join them in Washington to do MORE OF THE SAME.

We need a national campaign against that and for an alternative path, not just a Presidential campaign between two old men, ours is better than yours.

Banging the abortion drum and twaddle like this seems all the Dems got currently:

De Niro compares Trump to Hitler, Mussolini: Voters not taking the threat 'seriously'
The Hill News / by Judy Kurtz / May 14, 2024 at 1:57 PM
Robert De Niro says he can't comprehend why voters aren't taking Donald Trump "seriously," comparing the former president to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.

"I don't understand why people are not taking him seriously," the "Ezra" actor said of Trump during a Tuesday appearance on "The View."

"Because you read about it historically in other countries that they didn't take the people seriously — Hitler and Mussolini, they're fools and clowns," De Niro, one of Hollywood's most vocal Trump critics, said.

"Who does not think that this guy is going to do exactly what he says he's going to do?" he asked of the 45th president.

"He's done it already," the 80-year-old Academy Award winner continued.

"And then what? We're gonna sit around and say, what, 'We told you so?'"

"It's gonna happen. If he gets elected, it's going to change this country for everybody," De Niro said.

"Those people who support him with anger and hate — because that's what he's about — they're going to see," he said.

"If he becomes president again, he is not going to not stop being president," Whoopi Goldberg, one of ABC daytime talk show's co-hosts, added of Trump.

"You understand this? His idea is to stay in until he drops dead," Goldberg said.

"That's it," De Niro agreed.

"He's not conceding it now. So imagine if he actually did win the election — it's over. We're going to have such civil strife," De Niro said.

Trump said last year that if he wins reelection, he would not seek a third term in office, which is barred by the Constitution.

“When somebody says eight years, we need eight years, no. In six months to a year, many of the problems, almost all of the problems that you and I have just spoken about will be solved,” Trump said last September.

De Niro has been a frequent critic of Trump, once famously saying he wanted to "punch" him in the face and describing him as a "flat-out blatant racist." The former commander in chief has fired back at the performer over the years, calling De Niro a "very low IQ individual."

2024, First use of the term Never Bideners, Eli Lake, Free Press
« Reply #1346 on: May 15, 2024, 06:28:03 AM »
Yesterday's post (here) regarding the NYT poll made it clear that Never (Again) Biden is now a bigger thing than Never-Trump ever was.

Give Eli Lake credit for saying it aloud.

https://www.thefp.com/p/the-rise-of-the-never-bidens

(Hey ccp, he's actually pointing out Jewish donors backing off, but Biden has plenty of money.)

And now ... the first use of the acronym NAB, Never Again Biden and the rise of the nabbers.

I prefer if the lesson learned was Never Again Leftism.

Joe made everything worse but more importantly, Leftist policies made everything worse.

Joe it's just the current stooge for the people putting forward these policies.

2024, Biden up by 2% (in MN)
« Reply #1347 on: May 15, 2024, 07:03:40 AM »
In what was not long ago the most liberal Democratic state in the Union (1984),

"Minnesota (KSTP/SurveyUSA): Biden (D) 44, Trump (R) 42"

Hillary won Minnesota by 2%.  (Hillary wasn't elected president.)

If Trump wins Minnesota it is a complete midwest sweep, and states like Arizona won't matter.

Sure enough, Biden is the one expanding the map, with his failures.

Small print conditions by Biden translate into they must be moderated by CNN or NBC or CBS or Univision.

What's Doing Biden In
« Reply #1349 on: May 15, 2024, 07:57:33 AM »
Biden's popularity descent is traced below. This can't be lost on the behind the scenes Dems; they gotta be planning something, be it a convention coup or ever ranker skullduggery:

How America came to hate FJB

Inflation, immigration, Afghanistan and Trump have done him in
MAY 15, 2024

People forget that before there were chants of FJB, he was pretty popular. He had a plus 23 rating on job approval as his presidency began and six months later he was at plus 9.6, a very respectable score. Trump was never anywhere close to 9.6 — even on his inauguration day.

Biden was the most unknown president since William Howard Taft to the American people. Most people knew two things about Biden: 1) he was Obama’s VP and 2) he wasn’t Donald Trump. Three years ago, Americans saw No. 2 as a good thing.

On July 22, 2021, Disney’s 538 gushed, “The first six months in the White House are often frenzied for presidents as they push for big policy changes to try to live up to their campaign promises. President Biden is no exception. In his first 100 days in office, he signed dozens of executive actions and pursued sweeping legislation, like his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus package, which offered Americans further relief from the pandemic, and his ambitious two-step infrastructure plan. The hope for Biden, as with most presidents, is that his accomplishments will placate Americans who already support him while also winning over some who don’t.

“But as it turns out, few Americans have changed their minds since the 2020 election. Biden’s job approval rating over his first six months in office was the steadiest such rating of any recent president during that period, according to FiveThirtyEight’s historical approval rating data. His approval has ranged from a high of 55.1% on March 22 to a low of 51.1% on July 15 — a difference of just 4 percentage points.”

Then came August. As the month began, his approval was 50.8% and his disapproval was 42.8%. That was a plus 8-point approval.

September began with his disapproval at 47.2% and his approval at 46.8% — a deficit of 0.4 points. FJB’s approval has been underwater ever since. His deficit was 17.8 points on Saturday.


I would like to think he was done in by a photograph of him looking at his watch as the caskets of 13 American troops killed by the Taliban. This was deliberate. He looked at his watch several times during the ceremony at the airfield in Dover, Delaware.

It also was reminiscent of George H.W. Bush checking his watch during a debate with Bill Clinton.

But realistically, the photo of Biden wanting to get the ceremony over with had little if any impact. Oh, people like me cared but we already disapprove of the guy.

His haphazard surrender of Afghanistan did him in. The public saw that he left behind billions of dollars worth of military equipment in a manner reminiscent of Vietnam, a war that helped catapult him into the Senate as a peacenik.

The difference in 2021 was Americans didn’t much care about Afghanistan because no one was drafted to fight it, the protests were few, and the feeling was that we had won. Ditching Afghanistan did him in.

College football crowds began chanting Fuck Joe Biden. This shocked me because college students are supposed to be socialist tools who just repeat whatever their pinko professors say. The media tried to ignore the chants but when the chants hit NASCAR, the media had to notice. Instead of telling the truth, they lied.

The lie backfired.

AP reported, “It started at an Oct. 2, 2021. NASCAR race at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama. Brandon Brown, a 28-year-old driver, had won his first Xfinity Series and was being interviewed by an NBC Sports reporter [Kelli Stavast]. The crowd behind him was chanting something at first difficult to make out. The reporter suggested they were chanting ‘Let’s go, Brandon’ to cheer the driver. But it became increasingly clear they were saying: ‘F—- Joe Biden.’”

That lie hurt Biden because it gave Biden’s critics a G-rated way of conveying the message, which made it mainstream among disappointed Biden supporters. AP called it “coded crudity.” Well, reporters had better learn to code better because they were the ones who made it possible to say FJB without saying it. Trump supporters should thank Kelli Stavast for being dishonest. Had she told the truth, the FJB chant likely would have died a natural death.


Inflation started kicking in, but Biden found a way to hide it and actually closed his disapproval gap to minus 9.8 points a year later by giving what he called a Dark Brandon speech in Philadelphia in August 2022 which he portrayed his opponents as evil threats to democracy because they did not vote Democrat.

Conservatives mocked the speech but it took the wind out of the sails of Republican efforts in the congressional races. Of course the refusal of Ronna the Prima Donna McDaniels to address Democrat cheating and her refusal to help Trump-backed candidates were the real blow. Romney is the Mormon word for backstabber.

Rnter Greg Abbott. I know many conservatives don’t like the governor of Texas but he did something I never imagined possible. He split Democrats on immigration by shipping illegal aliens to all those sanctuary cities. Suddenly Democrats were crying foul. The cries from New York, Chicago, Denver and DC were that there were too many illegal aliens.

Duh.

Abbott made it an issue and converted many a Democrat to President Trump’s position on immigration. They say a conservative is a liberal who got mugged. Illegal aliens are mugging plenty of Biden supporters.

Now having surrendered Afghanistan in his first August and having gone Dark Brandon in his second August, in his third August Biden prayed for and received what he thought was manna from heaven: a mugshot of President Trump.

Biden mocked the mugshot.

The Independent invited readers to “Watch a smiling Joe Biden call Donald Trump’s mugshot ‘handsome.’”

BBC understood American politics better than the Independent and the hyenas in the American pressbox. Trump used that mugshot to raise millions of dollars. He rose in the polls. BBC said:

Within minutes of the picture being released, it appeared on Mr. Trump's website along with a statement saying he had been arrested despite committing no crime. "What has taken place is a travesty of justice," it said, along with a call for campaign contributions.

Mugshots have destroyed other political careers. For him, it has already become a campaign symbol.

In fact, in a matter of hours his official campaign was selling T-shirts featuring the image. "NEVER SURRENDER," they read. Mugs and stickers are also available.

It is yet another example of how Mr. Trump continues to defy political gravity.

Indeed, the whole ordeal of the lawsuits and indictments has turned on those crafty Democrats. Judge Merchan is doing all he can to limit Trump’s campaigning by confining him to New York City.

That’s a big mistake.


AP reported, “New York made Donald Trump and could convict him. But for now, he’s using it to campaign.”

The story said, “After leaving court Thursday, Trump made another stop, heading to a midtown Manhattan firehouse with boxes of pizza in hand. Trump spent about 10 minutes shaking hands, posing for photos and chatting with several dozen firefighters and other personnel there before returning to Trump Tower for the night.

The felony trial has curtailed Trump’s ability to campaign across the country. But it also means Trump is often spending four days a week in the nation’s media capital, with access to ready-made locations for campaign events that he can use to court voters as he tries to reclaim the White House.”

This weekend, he left Trump Tower, New York, and went to New Jersey.

Fox reported, “After a long week in court, Donald Trump is at the Jersey Shore. And he was greeted by thousands of his friends.

“Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, drew what his team called a mega crowd of tens of thousands to a Saturday evening rally in the southern New Jersey resort town of Wildwood. It was being held 150 miles south of the New York City courthouse where he has been forced to spend most weekdays sitting silently through his felony hush money trial.

“Lisa Fagan, spokesperson for the city of Wildwood, told the Associated Press that she estimated the crowd represented between 80,000 and 100,000 attendees, based off her own observations on the scene Saturday, having seen dozens of other events in the same space.

“The beachfront gathering, described by Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-N.J., as the largest political gathering in state history, was designed to serve as a show of force at a critical moment for Trump, who is facing dozens of felony charges in four separate criminal cases with the election less than six months away. There is a real possibility that Trump could be a convicted felon by Election Day.”

Nostalgia for President Trump grows.

Breitbart reported, “The Republican Party is enjoying an 11-point swing their way against the Democrat Party as the number of Americans expressing affiliation with their party has increased.

“A Gallup poll conducted between April 1 and 22 showed that the Republican Party was enjoying a net average of 11 points in voters expressing affiliation with their party over the Democrats, compared to results in 2016.”

The large turnout in New Jersey was predictable because Americans know this is another political witch hunt from the people who gave us the Mueller report and two impeachments. Democrats keep doing the same thing over and over again — expecting better results each time.

I am not calling their efforts a failure, but Gallup reported a few weeks ago, “Biden's 13th-Quarter Approval Average Lowest Historically. Averages 38.7% job approval.”

Trump was at 46.8% in his 13th quarter.

FJB’s presidency will get a fourth August in three months. We will see how he blows it.
