Nikki Haley loses to "none of these candidates."

Nikki Haley loses to "none of these candidates."
“That was kind of the expected result,” Nevada Republican Party’s National Committeeman Jim DeGraffenreid told ABC News, noting Nevada Gov. Joe Lombardo, who recently endorsed Trump, had also suggested he would be casting his vote to “none of these candidates.” “This is the third state to vote, and I haven't seen any strength out of her when ballots are actually cast yet,” DeGraffenried continued.


It is becoming more and more obvious that the Haley campaign is dying. 


In the Republican primary in Nevada,  Nikki Haley  appeared to lose decisively to the option “None of these Candidates” on Tuesday night, a troubling sign for her campaign as she seeks desperately needed electoral momentum.

Trump reacted to Haley’s Nevada loss on his social media platform, saying it’s a “bad night” for his Republican rival.

What to know about Nikki Haley losing to 'none of these candidates' option in Nevada (msn.com)

Haley had no direct competition in the Nevada Primary. Is she really going to suffer further embarrassment by losing in her home state of South Carolina. Sometimes candidates get so caught up in their own rhetoric that they make it impossible to climb down. In case Haley still doesn't know, South Carolina is now a Trump stronghold. Haley's old allies are now part of a long line of SC officials endorsing Trump. The long list includes Sen Tim Scott, Gov Henry McMaster, and Reps. Nancy Mace and Jeff Duncan. Polling shows that Trump might get 68% of the Republican vote in SC. I sincerely hope she spares herself any further embarrassment. This race is over.


In other news:

Joe Biden takes on Snickers: While making an incoherent speech in front of democrat donors in the state of South Carolina he started out by repeating a debunked hoax concerning Trump calling veterans "suckers" and then making a vague complaint about Snickers candy bars. 

“You see that article about the Snickers bar?” Biden asked.

“Well, it’s gonna stop,” he added. 

Nobody understood what he meant and leftwing media won't show it, but evidently Joe has confused Snickers miniature candy bars with the regular bars. He must think they shrunk the bar while charging the same price. It was sad to watch.



House Republicans lose two key votes. Republicans in the House are really struggling with their slim majority as democrats have their voting as a single bloc advantage. Last night the impeachment of Mayorkas and the aid to Israel both got sunk by a few Republican members.


The "bipartisan" border deal seems destined to fail in the US Senate. It may never even make it to the House. And Joe Biden was ready to sign it as long as the aid to Ukraine was included, no matter what it said about the border.


A DC Court of appeals ruled that Trump does not have immunity. What was very telling was the highly unusual order on scheduling in which Trump only has until Monday, Feb. 12 to file with the Supreme Court. The standard rules allow Trump 90 days. Does anyone still think any of this is legitimate?

Are you still stuck on that, Florida is as red a state as you can get yet we have massive mail in voting. 

Nevada just switched over as well.

Nevada  is now  a  universal  vote  by  mail  state, so all registered  voters  will receive  a ballot  by  mail  and no request is necessary.

finding their voters registration number or PIN, even the specific way the inner and outer envelopes are sealed

I know.  This bill had most of what Republican voters wanted and almost nothing Democrats wanted with the exception of not allowing Russia from running roughshod over Europe.  I realize that Republicans are pro-Russia now but, I had thought that they felt that the border 'invasion' was an emergency.  It really must be hard on them trying to navigate positions on policy when Trump hasn't even told them what their positions are yet.

it shouldn't take that long to prepare a defense of an unconstitutional and ridiculous legal theory...

7 years of stalling the legal process should be added to any jail term he receives. gee, I sure hope trump has the stamina to attend all of his campaign events along with all of those pending court appearances he's looking at. it could be a bit more stressful than watching TV, tweeting insane bullshit, grifting gullible morons, cheating at golf, and eating junk food all day long. his brain is misfiring and his verbal transmission is already noticeably slipping at the mic on the podium.

President Barack Obama has to personally approve the killing of a U.S. citizen targeted for a lethal drone strike outside combat areas, according to a policy Obama adopted in 2013. The president also is called upon to approve drone strikes against permanent residents of the U.S. and when "there is a lack of consensus" among agency chiefs about whom to target, but in other cases he is simply "apprised" of the targeting decision, the   newly-disclosed document   shows.

On September 30, 2011, a hunting party of US drones found its quarry while flying over the desert in Yemen. They fired Hellfire missiles at the vehicle carrying Anwar al-Awlaki, a New Mexico–born, firebrand cleric, whom the Barack Obama administration accused of being an operational leader of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. The killing of al-Awlaki was the result of a multiyear operation involving the CIA, Joint Special Operations Command, and allied foreign intelligence services. That same morning,  President Obama heralded the strike  as a counterterrorism success. 

For all the effort that the Obama administration has gone to in asserting that its drones only kill the people that the administration intends to kill, Holder wrote in a letter today to Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) that Samir Khan, 16-year-old Abdulrahman Awlaki and Jude Kenan Mohammad were “not specifically targeted by the United States.” The fourth American to die in a drone strike since 2009 was Abdulrahman’s father Anwar Awlaki, a radical propagandist  whom the U.S. killed in Yemen in 2011 .

Targeted!

This is an absolute deflection, these executions weren't ordered by a president or any elected official, these were handed down by a jury after a defendant got a trial that afforded him due process with appeals, the death sentence was handed down by a jury of his peers.

should he be charged?

If those actions are not a part of his duties, YES.

  That's convenient exactly who decides what his duties are? can a president order the execution of an American without a jury? no due process? who isn't an immediate threat? ie self defense?

Do you even know how many years Hunter was investigated?

Six years into a federal probe of his personal and professional life, President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, is facing  additional legal exposure .

That is right, six fucking years of slow walking an investigation. Of allowing the most serious of charges statute of limitations to run out. That lead to a sweetheart plea deal that would let Hunter walk in exchange for "staying clean". A plea deal no one else not named Biden, Obama, or Clinton could ever hope to get. The only reason the plea deal fell through was a Trump appointed judge. She rightly pointed out that the plea deal granted Hunter immunity from all future charges. Weiss- being caught balked and said no- Hunter's lawyers said yes.

In the spring of 2023, two brave IRS whistleblowers stepped forward to notify Congress of how the Justice Department had impeded, delayed, and obstructed the criminal investigation of the President's son, Hunter Biden. The whistleblowers, who came forward only after IRS leadership failed to address their concerns, noted several deviations by Justice Department officials "from the normal process that provided preferential treatment, in this case to Hunter Biden." The whistleblowers exposed how the Justice Department allowed the statute of limitations on certain charges against Hunter Biden to lapse, prohibited line investigators from referring to or asking about President Biden during witness interviews, withheld evidence from line investigators, excluded the investigative team from meetings with defense counsel, and tipped off defense counsel about pending search warrants.

The outcome leaves in jeopardy the yearslong investigation into Hunter Biden’s business dealings. He had been charged with two misdemeanor tax crimes of failure to pay more than $100,000 in taxes from over $1.5 million in income in both 2017 and 2018, and he made an agreement with prosecutors, who were planning to recommend two years of probation.

Last month, Biden was charged with possession of a firearm by a person who is a known drug user, a felony. He had a Colt Cobra .38 Special for 11 days in October 2018. He agreed to enter into a diversion agreement, which means that he would not technically plead guilty to the crime. As long as he adhered to the terms of his agreement, the case would be wiped from his record. If not, the deal would be withdrawn. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

U.S. District Court Judge Maryellen Noreika, who was appointed by President Donald Trump, said she was concerned about the language in the diversion agreement, which contained details about not prosecuting Biden for tax crimes in the future. She suggested the lawyers get back together and discuss it.

“I think having you guys talk more makes sense,” she said to the attorneys.

Weiss was appointed Special Council by Garland- in violation of the law. Weiss isn't eligible to be special counsel since he works for the Federal Government- namely the DOJ.

600.3 Qualifications of the Special Counsel.

( a ) An individual named as Special Counsel shall be a lawyer with a reputation for integrity and impartial decisionmaking, and with appropriate experience to ensure both that the investigation will be conducted ably, expeditiously and thoroughly, and that investigative and prosecutorial decisions will be supported by an informed understanding of the criminal law and Department of Justice policies. The Special Counsel shall be selected from outside the United States Government. Special Counsels shall agree that their responsibilities as Special Counsel shall take first precedence in their professional lives, and that it may be necessary to devote their full time to the investigation, depending on its complexity and the stage of the investigation.

( b ) The Attorney General shall consult with the Assistant Attorney General for Administration to ensure an appropriate method of appointment, and to ensure that a Special Counsel undergoes an appropriate background investigation and a detailed review of ethics and conflicts of interest issues. A Special Counsel shall be appointed as a “confidential employee” as defined in 5 U.S.C. 7511(b)(2)(C) .

Weiss worked   with   Joe Biden ’s eldest   son   to hash out prosecution strategies. “We will continue to aggressively pursue all types of fraud in order to protect the public,” Weiss said in his part of a statement with Beau Biden on the fraud case.

Today, that little-known history highlights the deep challenges Weiss faces as he   pursues   a newly recharged investigation into Beau’s brother, Hunter Biden, in a small state long politically dominated by their father.
Although Democrats point to Weiss’s appointment by President Donald Trump  as evidence of his independence, the full story of his career is more nuanced, as he spent two years as acting U.S. attorney under President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden and then remained as a top deputy for the remainder of their term.
Weiss has gone back into hiding- supposedly investigating Hunter and now Brandon's criminal acts. Expect to see him in about six more years. Unless Trump gets elected and kicks him out and has a new AG appoint a real special counsel.
Let us know when Hunter is actually on trial? It is only going on 7 damn years.
And the left accuse Trump of stalling.
Funny how Garland/DOJ/FBI can bring all of these charges in a few short months against Trump; Jan 6th rioters; and parents protesting what their kids are taught in school (and being upset by their daughters being raped in bathrooms by boys claiming to be girls)- but can't seem to get anything meaningful done when it comes to Hunter and Brandon.

Of the 2011 deaths, Rogers spokesman Overton said, " The Obama White House claims that only Anwar al-Awlaki was specifically targeted. However, there is no way to verify that, since the deliberations are secret. Either they were targeted or they were collateral damage of a kill policy. In either case, the program is run by Obama, who personally makes the final decision to kill a target. If the three were not specifically targeted, their deaths remain the responsibility of Obama."

F ederal investigators asked financial institutions to use search terms such as “TRUMP” and “MAGA” when combing over customer data in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) revealed Wednesday. 

The request came from the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCen), according to documents obtained by the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. 

The panel, headed by Jordan, demanded testimony from the agency’s former Strategic Operations Division director Noah Bishoff as part of a probe into what the Ohio Republican called an “alarming” case of “pervasive financial surveillance” seemingly conducted “on the basis of protected political” speech.

Then the state and local charges where the federal government has been involved sharing evidence (illegally) as well.

Not to mention 3 TDS driven leftist judges in districts where the jury pool will be TDS driven mighty mental midgets.

Also, it is really damn easy when laws and the Constitution don't matter. Smith threw attorney/client privilege out the window when he forced Trump's lawyers to testify.

So, the unbiased liberal press is now the go to source for straight up, honest reporting on Republicans.  Yeah, right.

Let's just point out that Nevada Republicans are pissed because state Democrats passed a law that forces them use a state-sponsored primary.  Republicans are not even awarding delegates from the primary results.  That's why Trump didn't waste his time with the primary.

But, hey, any friggin' liberal lie reported by the unbiased press is gospel truth if it aligns with what you want to believe.

I do not recognize the GOP of today.   Imagine what Reagan would say if he could see the mess his party has devolved into.   Yet we see people clinging to the GOP due to the brand regardless of what it actually stands for.

Probably say something similar if Kennedy were to see the Democratic Party today.

Not enough independents yet.

People are more than willing to vote for someone they know is bad for the country.

Ultimately one must face reality.   When one of two individuals will be PotUS, both are bad choices, but one is an order of magnitude worse, the decision is easy — ensure the order of magnitude worse individual does not win.

Yeah, I just can't get to the point of voting for someone I know is not fit for the job.

I realize others can attempt to justify voting for one of them but that isn't who I am.

Others will make the choice.   One quite substantial justification is that Trump is an order of magnitude worse than Biden.

If one is dying of thirst and the choice was their own urine or feces contaminated water, they would make a choice and I bet they would choose that which is NOT an order of magnitude worse.

Your opinion has been clear.

others will make their choice, didn't know it was in dispute.

I am telling you the whole magnitude thingy is YOUR opinion.

Absolutely no way will or can I justify voting for a loser when I SEE them, . no matter how others may be able to justify it to themselves.

I see no point in voting for failure personally.

I don't think its good for the country.

What is it with you and others telling people who have opined that their comment is their opinion?

Of course it is.   Nobody needs you to state the obvious.

A question for you.

do you believe that Trump or Biden is good for the country?

no what ifs or saying it depends. just a straight out yes or no answer is all I am looking for here .

answer based on what you have observed.

I have.

 the stark reality is both Trump and Biden suck.

The reality is voting for one of them won't be helpful to the country.

... do you believe that Trump or Biden is good for the country?

jrSmiley_88_smiley_image.gif   No, Texan;  obviously no.

Given I have repeatedly stated that both are bad, your question is (yet again) of the blatantly obvious.   

If someone states that Trump and Biden are both bad for the nation then by definition they hold that neither is good for the nation.

The most recent example:

TiG @10.1.9 When one of two individuals will be PotUS, both are bad choices , but one is an order of magnitude worse, the decision is easy — ensure the order of magnitude worse individual does not win.

Note the "both are bad choices" part.    Did you need me to use the language: "choices are bad for the nation"?

And my example:

If one is dying of thirst and the choice was their own urine or feces contaminated water, they would make a choice and I bet they would choose that which is NOT an order of magnitude worse.

I should not need to also state that neither drinking one's own urine nor feces contaminated water is a good thing.   The obvious good thing is to drink fresh water.

, Texan;  obviously no

If it was obvious I wouldn't have had to ask.

I don't care about how you justify your vote, and thought that was abundantly clear when I stated a yes or no was all that was necessary to answer my question.

You vote however you want, just like me!

"The most damaging myth in American Politics is that the Reagan era was good for the country by birthing the era of trickle-down economics, exotic tax havens, budget slashing, and union busting.

Reagan set the stage for the tragic decline of America's once proud middle class."

te where party officials decide who will be the candidate if the same situation happens to Trump?

It's a brokered convention either way. Trump will  have a majority of the delegates and they would have no tie to Haley, whether she's still officially in the race or not. Granted, she would be a very likely choice, but whoever the  Trump delegates and Party officials decide upon will be the nominee. It doesn't appear Haley is going to have many delegates at all, no  matter how long she stays in the race.
