And now for something completely different

I'm taking a small break from Mueller.

Math wins in the end. I've been arguing with my wife for a month now, that her pay has not gone down.

In our simple example let.s say Mrs. Def_con makes $20 an hour and gets a shift differential of $2 an hour.

The idiots in HR sent out a letter in January saying your base compensation is going up by 2%, but your shift differential is going down by 5%. So everybody at work decided their pay was going down by 3%.

Dumb ole me popped up and said, no your total pay is up, it's a weighted average (I should never have said that).

I've spent the last month trying to explain that one but it didn't help.

She finally had her meeting with HR and they redid her comp form, they stopped using percentages and listed the amount Base pay up. shift differential down, total comp up.

Now since she can see what a weighted average is she gets it.

It's always communication, if HR had originally just listed the dollar amounts, she would have understood from the get go.

I was hoping they might "look in the mirror"

and try to understand how they could be so wrong for two years, and learn something.

Nope, consensus seems to be Barr is lying Mueller really found the collusion. Barr is covering it up. If the complete report and all (Grand Jury Testimony) isn't released, they're gonna scream it's all a big lie.

Folks are feeling raw tonite

Alerts everywhere. Take a deep breath, it's not personal.

Economic models indicate Trump on track to win re-election in 'landslide': report

Long way to go, but at the moment it's about as good as it's gonna be. Gee Green new deal vs Trump's economy.What shall I do?

From Fox News:

Despite low approval ratings and the cloud of the Mueller probe, President Trump would easily win a second term in office if the election were held today, according to economic models with a history of correctly picking presidential victors.

According to a report in Politico, a flourishing U.S. economy – featuring low unemployment numbers, cheaper gas prices and rising wages – paired with the historical advantage that incumbent presidents enjoy give Trump a strong shot at winning a second term in a "landslide."

Does the MSM ever get one right about Trump?

Here's another of their favorite stories down the drain.

Turns out it was Bezo's lover's brother that sold the texts to the National Inquirer, not Trump.

From Daily Caller:
REPORT DISCLOSES HOW THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER GOT ITS HANDS ON JEFF BEZOS’ RACY TEXT MESSAGES


The brother of Jeff Bezos’s mistress sold racy text messages from the Amazon CEO to the National Enquirer, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday, citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter.

Michael Sanchez — the brother of Bezos’s lover, Lauren Sanchez — reportedly sold the billionaire’s secrets for $200,000 to the Enquirer’s publisher, American Media, the report notes. Michael denied sending the National Enquirer “the many penis selfies” but declined to comment about whether he sent the publication other photos of Bezos, according to WSJ.


The report appears to conflict with rumors that President Donald Trump was behind the caper.

Poll: Half of Americans say Trump is victim of a 'witch hunt' as trust in Mueller erodes

Maybe, there is hope for the country.

From USA Today.

WASHINGTON – Amid signs that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference may be near its conclusion, a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll finds that trust in Mueller has eroded and half of Americans now agree with President Donald Trump's contention that he has been the victim of a "witch hunt."

Support for the House of Representatives to seriously consider impeaching the president has dropped since last October by 10 percentage points, to 28 percent.

Federal Appeals Court Hears Proof Of Citizenship Law That Kobach Touted

Lower court ruled a proof of citizenship law unconstitutional.

How the hell could that e unconstitutional? You have to be a US citizen to vote in State and federal elections.

AP via TPM.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A federal appeals court will hear arguments Monday over the constitutionality of a struck-down Kansas statute that had required people to provide documents proving their U.S. citizenship before they could register to vote.

In a case with national implications for voting rights, Kansas faces an uphill battle to resurrect the law once championed by former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach , who led President Donald Trump’s now-defunct voter fraud commission.

White nationalist Scary

I really wish the progressive media would stop blatantly lying.

Here's what I leaned today from an interview with a former "FBI counter terrorism expert" on MSNBC.

All hate crimes are committed by white nationalist.

White nationalist have killed more people than Islamic terrorists.

And the Pulse night club shooter was a white nationalist.

Bonus fact from another segment.

The NZ shooter is a white conservative Trump supporter.

737 max8 on fire?

Here's another take on the crash.

From Red State.


In a war or disaster, the first reports are often wrong or conflicting.

In the case of the Ethiopian Airlines crash of the 737 Max 8, there are two very different reports. The first is that the loss of control that crashed the plane and killed all onboard was related to the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (“MCAS”) system that tragically appears to have caused the Lion Air crash last year. Indeed, early analysis indicates a similar pattern to the Lion crash indicating a struggle between the aircraft and crew.



Yet the other report is the statements of several witnesses on the ground, as reported by Reuters, who reported loud noises, smoke streaming from the aircraft, as well as clothing and papers escaping from the plane before it crashed.
