This is the journal that published a finding much beloved of liberals a few years back that purported to find scientific evidence that conservatives are more likely to exhibit traits associated with psychoticism, such as authoritarianism and tough-mindedness, and that the supposed “authoritarian” personality of conservatives might even have a genetic basis (and therefore be treatable someday?).

The authors regret that there is an error in the published version of “Correlation not Causation: The Relationship between Personality Traits and Political Ideologies” American Journal of Political Science 56 (1), 34–51. The interpretation of the coding of the political attitude items in the descriptive and preliminary analyses portion of the manuscript was exactly reversed.

I consider it 100% her fault that I take pleasure in her political demise.

Instead of serious arguments and contests over issues, for them it is always, lie, cheat, deceive, dodge and spin, never allowing us to just defeat them straight up.

These leaks expose what was already obvious to everyone.

Her fall is to cover her real leader, Bill and Hillary.  It was the Hillary campaign that rigged the system.  Vasserman Schultz (as in Sargent Schultz, "I know nothing") was the puppet.

Hillary has already made her honorary chairwoman of her campaign!

As , usual with the libs.  When finally caught , some slight embarrassment, maybe an apology but never real consequences.

By the way, ironically, the actor who played Sgnt Schultz in 'Hogan's Heroes' was a Jew who fled Nazi Germany:

“Congress Disses Obama One Last Time” reads a Politico headline. “Diss” (or “dis”) is a slang term for “disrespect,” so the implication is that lawmakers have personally slighted the president, when in fact all they have done is exercise their authority under the Constitution.

And what they did is more aptly characterized as a first than a last. The House and Senate both easily mustered the two-thirds majorities required to approve the only veto override in Obama’s more than 7˝ years in office. In this column’s view Obama is right on the substance—the new law is a bad one—but the story of how it came to pass is one in which everyone in Washington, including the president, looks terrible.

    ‘Donald Trump’s Special’ Sept. 26, 2016
    The Campaign to Normalize Terrorism Sept. 23, 2016
    Labor of Lovitz Sept. 22, 2016

The new law, styled the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act or Jasta, “would allow victims of terrorism on U.S. soil to sue foreign governments found responsible for those attacks,” as Politico explains. Its main target is the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and it is supposed to benefit one of the most sympathetic groups in America, survivors of the victims of the 9/11 attacks.

Unsurprisingly—and necessarily for a successful veto override—the act had wide bipartisan support. The vote to override was 97-1 in the Senate; Minority Leader Harry Reid was the sole dissenter, and it is probably no coincidence he is retiring at the end of the year. (Virginia’s Tim Kaine and Vermont’s Bernie Sanders, off campaigning for Hillary Clinton, missed the vote.) The House vote was 348-77, with only 18 Republicans and 59 Democrats voting against.

So what’s not to like about a bill that helps terror victims at the expense of our friends the Saudis? The Wall Street Journal made the case for the president’s position in an editorial last week: “If Jasta becomes law, crucial decisions affecting U.S. foreign policy will be influenced by judges and tort lawyers, instead of the U.S. President and diplomats.” The editorial further noted that “the anti-Saudi posturing is building at the moment the Saudis are showing a greater commitment to domestic reform and the antiterror effort.”

The president did not make his case so strongly. In fact, the text of that Politico story suggests that it was he who “dissed” Congress more than the other way around:

    Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said he and other senators repeatedly requested meetings with White House officials to hash out a potential deal that could accommodate some of the administration’s concerns.

    But he heard nothing back, Corker said. It’s just been “dial tone,” the senator added.

    “There’s been zero involvement from the White House. Zero,” Corker said, forming a “zero” with his fingers to underscore his point. “When you have a veto like this, it takes involvement, constructive involvement. I mean, there’s nothing.”

But Corker and his colleagues look equally feckless. Twenty-eight of them, from both parties, signed a letter yesterday to Sens. John Cornyn (R., Texas) and Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), the legislation’s lead sponsors, promising to “work with you in a constructive manner to appropriately mitigate” the bill’s “unintended consequences.” Why not do that before passing the law?

The president made that point Wednesday night, in a CNN “town hall”: “We found out some of the people who voted for it said, frankly, we didn’t know what was in it. And there was no debate of it. And it was, you know, basically a political vote.”

It’s more than a little rich for the man who gave us ObamaCare to be complaining now about lawmakers’ failure to read legislation without knowing what was in it. But the president is right on this point, notwithstanding his lack of credibility. Though it’s a bit silly for him to complain that it was “a political vote.” When is a vote not political?

Obama also said: “It’s an example of why sometimes you have to do what’s hard. And, frankly, I wish Congress here had done what’s hard.” Fair enough, but perhaps they would have if he had done the hard work of private persuasion that he seems to think beneath him.

“This is the single most embarrassing thing the United States Senate has done possibly since 1983,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said yesterday, according to the Hill (the House hadn’t yet voted):

    Earnest was responding to a reporter who told him Wednesday’s vote was the most overwhelming since a 95-0 veto override vote in 1983. In that year, the Senate overrode President Ronald Reagan’s veto of a land bill to give a few acres to six retired couples who paid for it, but later learned that it was still government property because of a surveying error.

The Washington Post contemporaneously reported on that veto, which “came under attack . . . from Republicans and Democrats as an act of insensitivity to the elderly.” Reagan’s veto message said the bill “ ‘would create a clearly undesirable precedent’ by encouraging other landowners to claim federal land at no charge.” We’re at a loss to understand why Earnest is siding with Reagan on that question 33 years later.

So here we have a law passed by congressmen who acknowledge it is likely to have deleterious unintended consequences and self-righteously denounced by a president who couldn’t be bothered to make the case to lawmakers ahead of the vote. And some in the press—we’re looking at you, Politico—portray it as just a big personal spat.

Is it any wonder many voters are fed up enough with Washington that they are willing to consider sending a man to the White House who lacks the basic experience and knowledge that one would think would be a prerequisite for the presidency?

For that matter, is it any wonder other voters, having done exactly that eight years ago, worry about repeating the same mistake?

Interesting article with a peek into the world of the "elites".

I watch how CNN fired Donna Brazille but we all know her disease is short lived.  She will simply mover around the revolving door to another lucrative opportunity somewhere else among the elites and not miss a heartbeat. 

The Clinton Podesta machine will find some other way to reward her for being a "soldier" among them.

I hate it when all our conspiracy theories are proven right.

She still is the head of the DNC, serving in place of someone who was caught doing the same thing, using her power wrongly to advantage one side, the Clintons.

 "serving in place of someone who was caught doing the same thing"

and who I would  add is now serving in the Clinton campaign getting rewarded for being such a good soldier in the Democrat elite mafia machine.

It is a merry go round of power, influence, and money.

That is why I believe (small) Colin Powell had the need to announce to the World that he is voting Clinton.  He wants to stay in the loop of the connected, influential, financial power brokers.  (Go with the expected winner and make sure the winning team knows).

I don't think our "elites" grasp that outside the D.C./coastal bubbles things are getting volatile. America is already in a cold civil war and it could get hot quicker than most imagine.

Colin Powell's Presidential choices of Obama, Obama and Hillary just tell us where he sits politically.  We thought he picked Obama because he is black but he picked him because he is liberal.  Powell never was a conservative or a Republican beyond name only.  He was a great military strategist and is a person quite successful in advancing his own power, influence and money.  As Elizabeth Warren would say, good for him.  But a constitutionalist he is not.  Nowhere in the constitution does it say we can right racial wrongs with reverse discriminatory schemes or that a woman has the right to slaughter her young.  These are merely liberal political views.

If you listen to Democrats, Donald Trump is the worst thing ever to happen to our nation. But that evidently doesn't mean they're above working with him to get some of their agenda going. The Democrat National Committee New York Times reports, "Congressional Democrats, divided and struggling for a path from the electoral wilderness, are constructing an agenda to align with many proposals of President-elect Donald J. Trump that put him at odds with his own party. On infrastructure spending, child tax credits, paid maternity leave and dismantling trade agreements, Democrats are looking for ways they can work with Mr. Trump and force Republican leaders to choose between their new president and their small-government, free-market principles." Divide and conquer — it's the Democrat way.

IMO the Republican strategy should , yes,  be to seek common ground especially for public consumption.  But make no mistake about it:

*common ground* is not the same as compromise.   Zero compromise , nadda.

We have already compromised too far.

There is never enough for the liberals.

Should be ready to steam roll the libs.  And be ready to follow through on delivering a better economy and better future for ALL Americans .  And that is the only way to turn the lib tide back.  IMHO of course:

Gimme Shelter

Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Ooh, see the fire is sweepin'

Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost its way
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Rape, murder!
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder yeah!
It's just a shot away

Franken emerging as all other potential leaders have been burned through and as the liberals prepare to sit on the sidelines and criticize.

Please correct me, anyone, if I am missing something about Al Franken.  His only 'humor' is sarcasm.  He has zero charisma.  He never was a lightweight on liberal policy and conservative bashing.  He kept a low profile in his first term for good reasons, what were they?  a) they stole the election for him and b) he is not a very likable guy.

I missed the questioning on the nominees, but wouldn't it be great to hear the nominees question the Dem Senators:  Let's see, you've been overseeing federal education for how many years, 6 years and your President for 8 years and which direction is it going under your watch?  Downward spiral.  What would you say to the following chart that clearly shows a negative correlation between federal involvement in our schools and outcomes, and federal money and outcomes?  You all oppose school choice, why?  And you call yourselves pro-choice?  Did they teach words and their meanings in your public school?  Would you say the brand of liberalism you practice is more about clarity or deception?

Soros was on some station the other day stating how Trump will fail and has no chance.

Then continues his behind the scenes work doing everything in his power to see to it that he fails.

All the while investing on his failure.

The holocaust screwed up this guys brain.
