    Speaking of such things I notice this story got very little coverage:

    FBI has not verified Trump dossier (Sunday)

    FBI and Justice Department officials have told congressional investigators in recent days that they have not been able to verify or corroborate the substantive allegations of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign outlined in the Trump dossier.

    They’ve had this critter for over a year, so if they can’t verify it in that time it means it is complete BS. We already know that it was commissioned and paid for by Hillary and the DNC. So why aren’t they in jail?

    The Dems will learn from this.
    They’ll make future accusations much closer to the election date so there’ll be less time for them to unravel.

    NYT report:

    “Age of Weinstein and Trump “

    Don’t you just love the way they tar Trump with the same brush as Weinstein

    The dossier was initially funded by Republicans for the other candidates trying to dig up dirt on Trump. The Dems just became the new customer once he won the nomination and there was no use funding the investigation any further. Shot themselves in the foot.

    NYT are absolute grubs. Disgusting. The same thing was done by the un-funny US moron Samantha Bee that appears on SBS. She carries on like she is new and different – ‘the only female late-night host’ – then delivers exactly the same anti-Trump material as Colbert/Kimmel/ Oliver, etc.

    Hey Samantha, you are Stephen Colbert with a vagina. That’s all.

    Sportsbet had Moore at @2.15 to win, put a bid on and it dropped to $2.

    The Dem guy is $1.75.

    GREAT AGAIN: USA Growth Forecasts on Rise…

    UNEMPLOYMENT AT 4.1%, lowest since December, 2000.

    So unemployment continues on it’s long term, Obama era, trend?

    As for Roy Moore, people seem happy to vote for him even if the allegations are true. Says something really…

  9. Tim Neilson

    So unemployment continues on it’s long term, Obama era, trend?

    4.8% when Obama finished his term, 4.1% 9 months later.

    Calculating back, if this is just a continuation of Obama’s trend, unemployment when he took office must have been 12.2%.

    Damn that ChimpyMcBushitler!!!!

    I love it when the Left eats their own. Mind you in Franken’s case it would be quite a substantial meal. But having started down the path of being in a state of permanent outrage at white male “privilege” and sexuality they suddenly find that the main perpetrators of privilege and unwanted exhibitions of sexuality are their own doyens such as Franken, Clinton and a certain fella named Weinstein. Not that I am opposed to taking down anyone who abuses other people to use power to get sex – consensual (sorta) or non consenual. Though I think its sad and ironic that even now they seem to be convinced that ALL hetero-sexual males (and only hetero sexual males) are rapists.
    But it now turns out that there is no hiding from the fact that people like George Takei, a high profile member of the gay community is known for this behaviour too. As is Kevin Spacey. On which note it is probably worth reflecting about how apposite it is that his House of Cards came tumbling down and that this may be a prophetic for the crumbling, pathetically corrupt Democrat Party (my God they are an ugly bunch). Though it seems likely that most of the above named individuals will fall too. But I am not convinced that all will – I am betting that the Left will make a last ditch effort to rally round some and save something from the mess.
    Takei for example is gay and is apparently liked by the Left and this may save him. But the others are either heterosexual and fair game (now that they are no longer in power) or in the case of Spacey apparently a bit of a prick (OK a lot of a prick) so even his sudden announcement that he is gay is unlikely to get him off the hook – after all the Left needs to throw someone to the wolves, so it may as well be someone who they dislike.
    This is the morality of the Left. All members must be protected no matter what they have done and how egregious their behaviour – until they clash with the Left’s own rhetoric and their behaviour becomes known publicly which makes them expendable – then watch out!

  12. The real big news, and I mean MOAB news was the announcement by the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia that Israel wasn’t so bad after all and that killing Jews was a no no.
    There are huge, and I mean YUUGE developments happening in the Middle East. Hezbolla and Hamas have all but lost their power. A coalition of Arab nations headed by Egypt and encouraged and backed by Trunp are changing the course of history.

    The sex scandal shinanagans in the US will soon pass and Judge Roy S Moore will win by double digits. Dozens of prominent politicians and businessmen will be indicted.

    Participation rate is important.

    And this…

    The New York federal reserve has raised their anticipated fourth quarter GDP growth forecast to 3.8%. That’s only a week after previously raising it to 3.2%.

    The Stock Market closes again at yet another all time high today:

    I recall Obama claiming Trump needed a magic wand to boost growth past 3%.
    As far as I’m concerned, anyone who continues to reject the fact that Trump has been a net positive for the US economy is either too thick to read data or is purposefully obtuse.

  14. Felix Kruell

    Baa Humbug:

    It’s simply too early to say. GDP figures are also not much different to the last few years of Obama. The participation rate is also no different?

    I think we can conclude Trump hasn’t been bad for the economy. But we can’t yet say whether he has been positive for it, or whether it has just continued the trajectory already underway under Obama.

    Apart from geeing up confidence, it’s hard to point to much Trump has done to cause a better economic outcome. The few things he has changed are unlikely to have had a causal impact within 12 months either.
