    It’s interesting that the right-wing noise machine has been so quiet about Kushner’s buddy, Mr. Bone Saw (MbS), of Saudi Arabia murdering Mr. Khashoggi in Turkey (although smears of Khashoggi are circulating on the right in an effort to bolster PT tRump’s poor performance, again.

    Now the Saudi King (MbS’s daddy) has taken the reins back from the Crown Prince to try to stanch the bleeding (figuratively). We’ll see what impact this mess has on our own Clown Prince.

    King tRump said that MbS was being treated “guilty until proven innocent” just like Kavanaugh. We bet our newest Supreme Court entry is flattered being compared to butchering murderer. Good job, King Don.

    So Repubs are suppressing voters in North Dakota. Of course they are. Repubs hate Democracy writ large or small.

      Heitkamp countered Jaeger’s view in an interview with ABC News after Thursday night’s Senate debate. She said the law by its nature blatantly disenfranchises Native Americans by requiring a residential street address.
      “Why would we ever disenfranchise a Native American veteran who only has a P.O. box that everybody knows when they walk into the polling booth, they know exactly who that person is, they know that they’re a North Dakota resident. That’s why we don’t have registration in North Dakota because we don’t have this problem and anyone who says this isn’t about disenfranchising Native Americans is not being honest,” the senator said.

      If this is the truth then thousands of democrats can go to North Dakota, get a PO BOX as an address and register to vote. Awesome. Its no wonder the left is so against voter ID laws that require something as simple as an street address and a bill going to that address so you can be verified as a state resident.

      PO BOX addresses are what criminals use. I am in no way comparing the Native Americans in North Dakota to criminals but she won by 3000 votes, it would not surprise me if the Democrats snuck a bunch of fakes over the border got them PO boxes, registered them to vote and voilla. As I’ve heard many times from democrats…dont forget to vote and vote often.

      “Suppressing voters in North Dakota…”. This is like one of those global warming quotes, which proclaim something to be true that hasn’t happened yet. One can’t tell if any votes were “suppressed” till after the election, and even then the cause would just be a guess.

    North American Class 8 semi-truck orders hit 42,300 in September, up 92 percent from a year ago.
    The continued surge in big rig orders may be another signal of a booming U.S. economy as the freight market records its best quarter for sales in history.
    “The economy is surging right now, putting stress on shippers to find trucks to deliver goods on time,” Don Ake, FTR vice president of commercial vehicles, said in a statement.

    1. Democrats want to take money from those that work and give it to those that don’t. They believe that by keeping YOU POOR they can keep you voting Democrat.

    2. Republicans simply believe that a strong economy will provide jobs so that YOU can WORK and earn a living. It is true that a doctor makes more than a carpenter. A hedge fund manager makes more than a doctor. Nothing in life has ever been fair.

    The choice is simple. Vote Republican for a strong economy and JOBS. Or Vote for Democrats who will then Immediately Impeach Trump for no reason other than he doesn’t play nice. They will obstruct everything, cut off funding for everything and generally return the United States to a struggling economy with no jobs so they can put YOU BACK IN POVERTY.

    It really is as simple as that. When was the last time you heard any serious talk by the GOP of abortion, Gay rights or passing bills to curtail womens rights. Its been quite awhile because the GOP doesn’t care anymore. After 8 years of Obama they care about one thing. Getting this economy moving again, returning jobs, good jobs to Americans and giving us some hope.

    Thats why under Obama the USA was polled as being on the right track by only 29 percent. While under Trump it is now in the mid 40’s and rising.

    If you give the Democrats power they really will have won with their MOB RULE and ANGRY intimidation. Is that the America we want?

    • Jethro says:

      The jobless rate has been dropping steadily since the end of the Great Recession – some 8 years of success. Job growth has been steady too. It has not stopped under tRump although it’s slowed a bit.

      The stock market nearly tripled from the end of the Great Recession until tRump started. It’s increased about 20% since tRump took over.

      The tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations have busted the debt, unconscionably at a time when the economy is percolating along. Bad, bad policy.

      His tariffs are a clumsy disaster, and China’s trade imbalance with us has INCREASED. When did conservatives abandon free trade?

      A vote for a Republican is a vote for attacks on Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, your healthcare; it’s a vote for pollution, disease, natural disasters, more tax cuts for the richest, cruelty, and more misery for the working classes.

      The Republicans afflict the afflicted and comfort the comfortable, and lie sell it as beneficial to the working classes. They offer no policies that make life better for most Americans – it’s why they are working to suppress voter participation. Voter suppression is as American as apple pie. How else can a minority stay in power?

      Repub candidates have panicked and now are lying saying they are in FAVOR of certain parts of Obamacare, namely protecting coverage of pre-existing conditions. The Campaigner-in-Chief lies yells mostly about brown-skinned immigrants.

      • Mangoldielocks says:

        (CNSNews.com) – In the 21st century, during the presidencies of George W. Bush and Barack Obama, the U.S. economy has not shown the ability to grow that it did in the last two decades of the 20th century, according to data released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

        In fact, real average annual economic growth has been nearly cut in half so far this century compared to the last two decades of the last century; and specifically *******during President Obama’s time in office it has dropped to an average of just over 1 percent.*********

        In the decade from 1981 to 1990, according to the BEA, average annual growth in real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was 3.36 percent. In the decade from 1991 to 2000, average annual growth in real GDP was 3.45 percent. In the twenty years from 1981 to 2000, average annual growth in real GDP was 3.405 percent.

        PER CNBC….not a Trump fan.

        GDP growth under Trump….. In the year since President Donald Trump has been in office, the economy has done something it has been unable to do since 2005: maintain 3 percent growth for three quarters in a row.

        Current GDP growth Figures. Real gross domestic product (GDP) increased at an annual rate of 4.2 percent in the second quarter of 2018 (table 1), according to the “second” estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.

        Why did the stock market continue to rise under Obama and his pathetic economy? BECAUSE INTEREST RATES WERE KEPT AT ZERO……ZILCH>>>>>ZIP……NADA his entire 8 years in office. The instant Donald Trump is elected the FED starts raising rates.

        So the only option to save money was to invest in the stock market because nothing was paying interest while the stock market was continuing to rise because of zero interest rates.

        A vote for a Democrat is a vote to return to Zero growth with a MOB of THUGS running the country’s purse strings.

    Evidence of voter suppression is …what? “Tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations have busted the debt..”. You of course mean tax cuts that were for almost everyone, of course. And the revenue has increased since the tax cuts so obviously the problem would be spending. But I forgot- liberal “ economics”….

    • Jethro says:

      Much of what Con Men believe to be true, is not.

      tax cuts that were for almost everyone

      Not according to your like-minded commenters here who claim the cuts went to the wealthy.

      revenue has increased since the tax cuts

      Much less than promoted. The increase is less than half the increase seen from 2016 to 2017, and is the smallest increase since the Great Recession. And all during the tRump Miracle Economy! And there’s the annoying fact that the deficit increased, prompting Gravedigger McConnell to propose slashing Social Security and Medicare.

      The U.S. Treasury announced Monday the deficit rose $113 billion over the previous year as government spending outpaced revenues. Receipts were generally flat in FY18, while spending increased 3.2 percent as Congress gave more funds for military and domestic programs.

      That brings the deficit to nearly a $ trillion and the accumulated debt to almost $22 trillion! Is it hypocritical for the NuGOP to decry deficits while increasing them?

      • Jl says:

        So in other words the tax cuts increased revenue, as said. And the tax cuts were for everyone, except for the very bottom where they are in effect not paying any income tax to begin with. Can’t cut something that isn’t there.

        • Jethro says:

          No, there is no evidence that the tax cuts increased revenue. Revenues increased slightly after the tax cuts, but less than they had the year before.

          Why aren’t Repub candidates mentioning the unpopular tax cuts?

          • Jl says:

            J is loosing it – “there is no evidence that the tax cuts increased revenue.”. Followed by, next sentence- “revenues increased slightly after the tax cuts.” So in other words, as said, revenues increased after the tax cuts.

          • Jethro says:

            We prefer to think you are playing dumb.

            We bet you have even said ‘correlation doesn’t prove causation’.

            Let’s put it another way, substituting your logic, “Not cutting taxes increases revenue much more than cutting taxes!”.

            And don’t forget the burgeoning deficit. We were promised that tax cuts would more than pay for themselves – yet the deficit is increasing.

      When the tables are turned it’s funny to read the words of a hypocritical whining little angry negro from from st. louis.


    • gitarcarver says:

      Of course, Pelosi had it coming, right?

      You’d have to ask the leftists that attacked her, Jeffery.

      The mob that went after her was left leaning people of Cuban descent who, unlike Pelosi, have direct experience in living under communism that Pelosi seems to love.

      Frankly, this type of attack or mob mentality, while started by the left, sickens me. It inhibits the free exchange of ideas and increases violence. It is something that we all should abhor.

      Yet oddly, I cannot remember you ever saying the mobs attacking conservatives were wrong.

      That was an oversight that you are going to correct in this thread, right?

      • Jethro says:

        We were under the impression from this site, and from your presinit, that only Democrats formed mobs yelling at others. It appears in this case, that even Republican politicians participated. But what do we expect from a party led by Donald Trump.

        Of course, now you would offer support for your claim that these Republicans were leftists. We suspect, once again, that you are either lying or mistaken.

        You disingenuously decry the mob action, and then justify it by implying Representative Pelosi is associated with the Communist Party. So you DO believe she had it coming?

        According to FOX (which humorously referred to the mob as ‘protesters’):

        The protest was organized by Nelson Diaz, the chairman of the Republican Party in Miami-Dade County, the Post reported. Some protesters reportedly wore signs of Proud Boys, a notorious right-wing group that is often accused of participating in violent scuffles with their opposition.

        Diaz had denied participating in the event until a video recorded by the leader of the Miami Proud Boys hate group was published by the right wing site “Big League Politics”

        Peaceful protests should be encouraged, violent or threatening mob actions should be discouraged.

        • gitarcarver says:

          We were under the impression from this site, and from your presinit, that only Democrats formed mobs yelling at others.

          If you were under that impression, you were clearly wrong. It wouldn’t be the first time.

          Of course, now you would offer support for your claim that these Republicans were leftists.

          Newspapers at the time reported that the mob was made up of people mostly of Cuban descent which typically are liberal and Democrats in South Florida.

          If the mob was participated and even helped organized by Republicans, I would say that they were wrong in what happened.

          Still waiting for you to say that what has happened in this and other mobs was wrong.

          Maybe you support communism as well.

          What is clear is that Democrats started this tactic of mob behavior and are reaping what they have sowed.

          • Jethro says:

            How quickly Con Men forgot Charlottesville, where a violent conservative mob killed a young woman.

            How quickly you forgot The Proud Boys mob actions.

            Peaceful protests should be encouraged, violent or threatening mob actions should be discouraged.

            We get it. Trump describes Democrats as a violent, unhinged, dangerous, radical, crazy mob who will destroy America with communism. And tRump minions (like you) have gone “all in” on tRump, calling libs/Dems/progressives as ‘commies’. It’s a political ploy for the mid-terms to rile the right.

          • gitarcarver says:

            So let’s review, shall we?

            Pelosi was yelled and cursed at by people.

            Mitch McConnell was yelled and screamed at a casual restaurant just yesterday. One “protestor” slammed his fist on the table in front of McConnell and then took McConnell’s food and threw it out the door.

            Now we all know that you will scream how horrible the “mob” yelling at Pelosi was, but you won’t say a word about a “mob” yelling at McConnell and stealing his property.

            You still won’t condemn the actions of violent left leaning mobs.

            All the left has is hate.

          • Jethro says:

            Why are you still prattling on? You were caught making scheisse up, describing a Republican party official led mob as leftist because you claimed Cuban-Americans are usually leftists. You further call Representative Pelosi and others communists.

            Now you want to change the subject to whether others condemn those shouting at Republicans. Plus you blame Dems for right-wing mobs saying the Dems ‘are reaping what they have sowed’.

            Yet you have no blame for your president and his violent rhetoric? The Repubs are reaping what they have sowed.

            Just stop while you’re behind.

          • Jethro says:

            Let’s use gitar logic…

            “Most white men in Kentucky are conservative so it’s likely the protester challenging Mr. McConnell was conservative.”

    Jobs over mobs.. Libturd campaign slogan- “vote for us or we’ll yell at you in restaurants”…. https://www.weaselzippers.us/400285-leftists-try-to-harass-mitch-mcconnell-at-restaurant-customers-come-to-his-defense/

    • Jethro says:

      j has lost it, citing the Gateway Pudendum and the Weasel. Do you deny that a right-wing mob KILLED a young woman during the Charlottesville demonstration? You know, the one where your president supported the KKK, neoNazis and white nationalists? It was in the papers and on all news networks but one.

      Right-wingers have a sordid history of threatening Democrats. Do you recall the release of Dem home addresses around the time the ACA was being debated and passed? Death threats and conspiracies against President Obama? The shouting Con mobs at the town hall ACA meetings in 2009?
