That's correct.

The dccc doesn't think the democratic candidate in a Texas city can win and wanted her to bow out and let someone more electable run.

This was the result:

WP: Have you talked to anyone at the DCCC since this happened?

LM: No, no. But Indivisible [an advocacy group focused on resisting the Trump agenda] came out today and said: Butt out; don't come to our city. They had an organizer who left for another job. Now the resistance base here is like, we don't want to hear anything from Washington Democrats. No national Democrat has done anything for this state, and now they have the audacity to come in and tell us what to do? You know, being seen as an outsider candidate in this district who's not beholden to the party -- that's not the most toxic thing to be.

Also, the people who are calling for the heads of the Broward county deputies (four of them?) who stayed outside behind their cars until Coral Springs backup arrived.  They are probably going to be able to deflect a lot of anti NRA crap because of that.

I have to say, there's probably a 50/50 chance that the police in my community (and in a lot of the suburban police departments in my area) wouldn't go charging into a school with an active shooter situation in progress.  Probably depends on who arrives on the scene first.

I know he's not serious, but please, please let him be serious.

Pretty sure the consensus response from California would be "don't let the door hit you on the way out".

Yeah, "both sides".

Still, tweeting this photo when the WH has been stonewalling is at least a momentary fuckyou.

Guys, I think Soros is going to have to start a gofundme.

The Soap Opera / Re: Who deleted the topic?
How can I tell what's been deleted without a thread title?  Your screen capture doesn't even contain the url address box.

TR policy is to not delete stuff, so I want to track down what happened.

We don't even delete threads by spambots.  We move them and edit the links.

Calling the vocal kids 'shills' and other 'talking points'.

I'm sitting on that story page today and tweeting every advertiser I see.

They don't have many advertisers actually.  So far I've only seen a belt company, and Hard Rock Cafe's Lake Tahoe casino has an ad with a link to a no results page.  Still, maybe they can be shamed.

I'm amused that one of the advertisers is paying for traffic to a broken link.

Hill article: Report: Mueller interested in Kushner's attempts to secure foreign financing

Quote
This is the first indication that Mueller is looking beyond Kushner's contacts with Russia as part of the investigation, according to CNN.

It had been previously reported that Mueller was looking into Kushner's contacts with Moscow, his relationship with former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his role in the Trump campaign's data analytics operation.

One of the meetings reportedly being explored by Mueller is a Nov. 16 meeting between Kushner and the executives of a Chinese conglomerate that was considering investing in 666 Fifth Avenue -- the flagship property of the Kushner family real estate empire. But efforts to secure money from the Chinese company, which also owns the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York, ultimately failed.

The other Kushner meeting of interest to Mueller is one that took place with a Qatari investor in an effort to secure financing for the same property, but that deal also stalled, according to CNN.

Reading his timeline, I can't tell if this is a parody account.

I don't think I've ever seen this TR Meme unironically before, but there it is, at the top of the page.

I don't think he's advocating an actual expansion of background checks.  The bill being considered basically goes after LE and military organizations that don't report what the current law requires.

People won't get their bonus pay or something if they are found to have not sent updates to the national database.
