    they only have 200k peeps voting…

    You had one job.The Iowa caucuses essentially collapsed in confusion when state party officials were unable to report any results.It was a colossal failure on Monday night that will only fuel the criticism of the state’s first-in-the-nation role, with rules so complicated that journalists had trouble explaining them and the Democratic apparatus couldn’t even count the votes.

    thins stinks like corruption and election rigging.

      It’s not corruption, it’s incompetence.

      They never tested the app state wide. When one precinct had a problem with it, they sent a guru who couldn’t fix it and they went with it anyway.

      The app doesn’t work, plain and simple, they didn’t do due diligence to find out in time.

      Next up. Nevada. They’re set up to use the same app.

      App used in Iowa Democratic caucus fiasco linked to ex-Clinton campaign staffers

      The app that was supposed to help the Iowa Democratic Party quickly report Monday’s caucus results – but contributed to confusion and a muddled result as campaigns were in an uproar – is linked to Hillary Clinton campaign veterans.

      Shadow, a tech firm that describes itself as a group that creates “a permanent advantage for progressive campaigns and causes through technology,” is the company that created the Iowa Democratic Party’s app, according to The New York Times. At least the COO, CEO, CTO and a senior product manager at Shadow all worked for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, according to LinkedIn profiles.

      Personally, I’m seriously hoping that the Democrats boycott the SOTU today. Including Nancy Pelosi. We could put one of those blow up dolls in her seat. No one will notice. Same blank expression.

      AP: In a brazen mockery of the theories attributing election tampering to him, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he had the results of the Iowa Democratic caucus in hand. He would not identify the winner by name, but did say “it is a good day to be a gay high school student from Indiana.”

      I SAW that! What a nice thing to think of.

      So did I miss anything while I was out saving the national GDP? Chris Plante had a drop-dead funny story. An older woman, about my age, but apparently not quite as sharp, is a Dem Iowa Caucus person, aka DIC. She’s all ready to vote for Buttigieg. Chris has the whole thing on audio and her voice sounds like she’s 90, so..what you hear is

      Woman 1: Oh yes, he’s married. He has a husband

      DIC – He’s married to a MAN??

      Keep in mind, this campaign has been going on for months, and she obviously doesn’t know jack – or Pete, for that matter.

      Then she says: “Well I don’t want thaaaaaat in the White House. Can I have my card back?

      I was pulling into a parking space and laughed so hard the wheel slipped and I almost had a WHOOPSIE!.

      I wonder how civilization has ever developed.

      Well, Miss Lindsey sez just as soon as this impeachment nonsense is done with, he’s going to investigate everything, but Miss Lindsey talks a good game…not to mention the Dems have promised impeachment will NEVER be over. So, there’s his built-in-excuse.

      I’m betting members like Tlaib won’t be able to keep it together and will get hauled out of the chamber. Or Pelosi will turn her back. Or something.

      But the Dems/Left will have a temper tantrum and that will take up the news cycle for 24 hrs.

      However, bad news…. Power just came back on.

      Seriously, all that standing up and clapping drives me nuts. Previous years I have tried to watch SOTU and it is BORING!

      Much more interesting to read the transcript the following day.

      A bit like watching American Football live. BORING! But if they edited out all the time outs and crap American Football may be a decent sport to watch.

      UNFORTUNATELY? Hardly. Here is her spokesperson quoting Nancy.

      “I tore it up. I was trying to find one page with truth on it. I couldn’t”.

      So she doesn’t believe Baghdadi, kidnapped, raped and murdered Kayla Mueller?

      I don’t know what demo of the voters Pelosi thinks that stunt and her rationale will convince/persuade to not vote for Trump, other than the already rabid left, but I can think of quite a few demos that it will absolutely disgust.

      One thing I missed. There was a lot of comment about how Trump didn’t shake Pelosi’s hand at the beginning. But when I watched the replay, I have to wonder if he actually SAW it. He was halfway (at least) turned away from her. AND…turns out, the tradition is for the Speaker to introduce POTUS with “Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my high honor to introduce the POTUS”.

      She omitted “my high honor”.

      She didn’t get her side any new voters, it was a dumb stunt. I’m sure it reinforced her base but so what?

      @ eaglesoars:

      A lot is being said that Rush was faking it when the President announced he was receiving the Medal of Freedom. I’m not so sure. He does not watch CNN (who leaked the off-the-record announcement the President made at the lunch they weren’t permitted to attend) and the fact that he was traveling with his wife Katherine and may have just taken a break from politics and news to enjoy the SOTU invitation.

      I had no idea Katherine is SO beautiful.

      Wonder if we’ll have Mark Steyn today since Rush is out of town. He might have arranged to do his show from a local affiliate.

      Speaking of Steyn, if and when it ever comes to it, I wonder if the “EIB Network” will just cease to exist without Rush or if they will appeal to Steyn to take the reins. I hope he does. He’s very much like Rush in the way he informs, and his humor is wonderful. I do enjoy his substitution days.

      Chris Plante said that he had to be transported thru the Capitol to the gallery in a wheelchair. Dang. I’ve been there, it IS a long walk, no question, but….dang.

      Exodus.

      Chris Plante played 3 of these calls this morning, all life-long Dems, all NEVER AGAIN Republicans.

      Naturally, you have to wonder if these are false flag type things, but even if they are, WELL PLAYED!!

      One of the calls was from a man who had the speech pattern Rick Wilson made fun of as being a rube, uneducated, knuckledragging Trump supporter. Well, he is now, thanks to you and yours Rick. Good work, asswipe

      Romney voted to remove Trump.
      You’re one and done in the Senate, you piece of sh*t.

      Grassley should immediately strip him of his Committee assignments. He can become a Democrat then. And Manchin can probably kiss his Senate seat goodbye as well.

      What I cannot fathom is what Romney’s endgame is here. He’s not going to be re-elected in Utah. Some are speculating that he’s worried about his own ties to the whole Ukraine mess and Burisma.

      I’m sure he’s thrilled at all the accolades he’s receiving from the left. They LOVE him! Just like they did when he signed RomneyCare. Meanwhile, if I were him, I wouldn’t go back to Utah any time soon.

      The differences in the national mindset boggles.

      must run, later.

      Well, in fairness, Trump has a lot more to work with. Boris has a steep hill to climb given how far Formerly Great Britain has fallen
