I'm guessing over 95% of this board (including me) has no idea what or who you are referring to?  Care to elaborate?

WV GOP Senate primary continues to amaze and befuddle...

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/05/05/blankenship-polls-west-virginia-senate-primary-570752

His (Blankenship’s) scorching attacks have veered into deeply personal, even racially charged territory.

This week, Blankenship began airing a TV commercial labeling McConnell “Cocaine Mitch,” an apparent reference to a 2014 report that drugs were once found aboard a shipping vessel owned by the family of McConnell’s wife, Taiwan-born Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao. Then, a few days later, Blankenship began airing another spot declaring that McConnell’s “China family has given him tens of millions of dollars.”

...

But after lining up behind losing candidates in Alabama and Pennsylvania races — electoral defeats that ultimately proved embarrassing to Trump — many Republicans are skeptical that he will forcefully repudiate Blankenship ahead of the primary.

Particularly concerning to Republicans is Blankenship’s TV spending. Over the final six days of the race, the self-funding coal baron is set to spend over $640,000 on commercials, according to media buying totals — more than Jenkins and Morrisey combined. Blankenship has spent over $2.5 million on TV ads in total, far more than his rivals.

Senior Republicans say they are also distressed that Jenkins and Morrisey spent nearly all of the campaign savaging each other. Further complicating matters is that a Democratic super PAC, Duty and Country, convinced that Jenkins would pose a formidable challenge to Manchin, has invested $1.8 million targeting him in an effort to keep him from winning the GOP primary.

Hmmm ... I always enjoy the SNL openings when they are about Trump. Alec Baldwin is a genius playing Trump. It's impossible to be that good of an actor.

And I love Kate McKinnon doing all sorts of characters. But this week Stormy Daniels, the real one, was actually on the show. WOW! I wonder if this was appropriate. She is a bonafide porn star on TV. WTF? I don't think SNL should have put Stormy on TV. Couldn't somebody have played the part? They brought in several celebs for the skit like Martin Short, the guy from the Fockers series, Jimmy Fallon. Why the real Stormy??

She wasn't having sex on SNL. Holy mackerel, you're uptight.

Undeniably true.

To nobody's surprise, Trump is STILL dominating the world conversation and MOST of his foreign policy decisions...at least for the moment, seem to be breaking his way.

Would probably hold back on that Nobel Peace Prize for now though.

The Democrats still haven't rearticulated exactly what they are for...except the opposite of everything Trump represents, fighting for workers' rights benefits, health care, protecting Social Security, etc.

I don't think the Dems have a clear idea or consensus on any of these foreign policy issues, either.

What goes around comes around ... didn't Trump's administration have some classless line about Mr. McCain dying? Now Melania is hospitalized. What goes around comes around. Be classy as much as you can, people. You say something mean and don't back down, it's strange how often something bad in return happens to u.

When does the public acknowledge and accept that WaPo is shilling for the intelligence community? The money trail is there, the ridiculous articles are there.

Since when is the “intelligence community” on the side of Democrats?    Ummm...that would be never.But that’s almost as rich as a Seth Rich conspiracy.

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2010/07/wapo_targets_intelligence_cont.html

It used to be the complete opposite.  But that evil Bezos is doing the bidding of his overlords in the military/industrial complex despite the Trump administration allocating more funding than any agency or military branch even requested.

So far the witch hunt has 17 indictments and 5 guilty pleas. The intelligence community is far more conservative than liberal.

Or, James Clapper and Rogers have succeeded in turning the entire IC against the GOP/Trump...which is actually not the case because the majority of those in the IC hate having former CIA directors get so directly involved in partisan politics as Clapper has done, basically accusing the president of treason, or intimating it, at least.   He certainly hasn’t ruled that possibility out.

There’s no way to PROVE anything he says...that’s the beauty of a conspiracy theory.

It’s all about perception.  If someone is led to believe something they’re already “suggestible” on...it’s not much of a stretch to push them over the edge into a full-fledged zealot.
