Self inflicted wound. How's Soviet central planning working for you all? BTW, what part of the government workforce was furloughed as non-essential during this period? Just discover the tax base was essential to fund all those government workers?
Yeah, the stupid broads bankrupts the state, funds stupid pet projects while the roads continue to deteriorate, acts like a petty fascist, threatens her political opponents, and then has the nerve to demand subsidies. Screw her.
[CNN] The initiative, called Republican Voters Against Trump, has produced multiple ads featuring disaffected GOP voters who say they are not voting for Trump. Many of these testimonials are recorded on smartphones and include voters who have voted for Republican candidates, some of whom voted for Trump in 2016.
"People need to see other people like themselves," said Sarah Longwell, a longtime conservative and Republican consultant who is the executive director of Defending Democracy Together, the nonprofit behind the effort. The New York Times first reported on the new ad campaign.
Other involved in the project are Bill Kristol, the former Weekly Standard editor and a prominent Never Trump commentator; and Tim Miller, a one-time adviser to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's 2016 presidential campaign.

Got to understand, classical liberals have no place in the party taken over by the socialists and neo-limousine-communists. So rather than forming their own party (and understanding that as a third party they'll have no power or influence), they are attempting to do to the Republicans what was done to them. Tell them to get lost.
[THEGATEWAYPUNDIT] A Paterson NAACP leader said the recent city council vote-by-mail election was allegedly so flawed that the results should be thrown out and a new election ordered.
"Invalidate the election. Let’s do it again," said Rev. Kenneth Clayton said amid reports more that 20 percent of all ballots were disqualified, some in connection with voter fraud allegations...
...Rev. Clayton said the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) will soon be filing a written complaint to Gov. Phil Murphy — who ordered the vote-by-mail only election — and State Attorney General Grubir Grewal.
Paterson activist Ernest Rucker said his experience this election is an example of the kind of corruption that allegedly took place. Rucker said he never received a ballot but that election records show someone mailed in a ballot in his name...
...Murphy ordered elections vote-by-mail in an attempt to keep people safe during the coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague) ...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men... crisis. In the upcoming primary, the governor will allow one in-person voting site per town.
In addition to apparent problems with the vote count in Paterson, NBC New York has shown video of ballots left out in building lobbies, of one voter handling many ballots, and reported on postal workers reporting finding hundreds of ballots at a time stuffed in mailboxes in Paterson — and even in a neighboring town, Haledon...
Just one more example of how voting should proceed non-stop until the "correct" outcome is achieved.

I honestly agree with the NAACP leader... provided the next election allows for absolute no vote by mail except for certified absentee ballots, and in person voting is universally available again. This is a scam of enormous proportions.
[BREITBART] Thursday, during an interview with TMZ, Rep. The Ageless and Downright Brilliant Comrade Maxine Impeach 45! Waters ...U.S. Representative for California's 43rd congressional district, serving since 1991, a total of 28.49214 years. A member of the Democratic Party, she is the most senior of the twelve black women currently serving in the United States Congress, and a member and former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus. Before becoming a member of Congress she served in the California Assembly, to which she was first elected back when Disco was in flower, in 1976, which would make it 43.49009 years. She has been a politician for virtually all her adult life. If she was a little brighter she'd be a Communist... (D-CA) accused President Donald Trump ...the Nailer of NAFTA... of "dog-whistling" which creates an environment that leads to a police officer "enjoying" the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
Waters said, "I’m reflecting of all the killings of young black men in particular but of course black woman as well, at the hands of police and at the hands if white supremacists. I’m thinking about the way that the president conducts himself in a way he’s dog-whistling. And I think that they are feeling that they can get away with this kind of treatment." I hold Maxine (along with Rev. Al and their seedy ilk) responsible for the killing of every single white, Hispanic, Asian, and Indian in the country.
[AMGREATNESS] Robert Mueller’s hard-charging former "pit bull" Andrew Weissmann plans to participate in an upcoming fundraiser for Democrat presidential candidate Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden ...I had the great honor of being arrested with our UN Ambassador on the streets of Soweto, trying to get to see him on Robbens Island... , effectively ending his television career at NBC News. The network’s policy reportedly requires that employees avoid activities "that may create the appearance of a conflict of interest."
"If the fundraiser goes forward, I’m withdrawing from MSNBC so I can be in compliance with their policy," Weissmann told the Washington Free Beacon on Friday.
Weissmann joined MSNBC as a legal analyst in November, offering advice to House Democrats during their unsuccessful impeachment gambit against President Trump.
He told the Free Beacon that when he notified the network about his plan to headline the June 2 fundraiser for Biden, he understood that the activity was prohibited by his contract.
"I knew what I was getting into and what the consequences would be," Weissmann said. "They wanted me to adhere to their policy."
The Free Beacon had previously reported on Weissmann’s fundraising plans, noting that the political activity would have violated the network’s longstanding policies.
[BREITBART] Thursday on Hugh Hewitt’s nationally syndicated radio show, Sen. Lindsey Graham ...soft-spoken senator from South Carolina, former best buddy of John Maverick McCain. Since McCain's demise, Graham has become more outspoken, more Republican and more of a supporter of President Trump. The speech he gave in support of Brett Kavanaugh was downright manly and really cheesed off the Dems... (R-SC), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told listeners he planned to call a number of ex-B.O. regime officials to testify before his committee.
Among those are former FBI Director JamesThe spine of the FBI is the rule of law Comey The disgraced, except in his own mind, former head of the FBI... , former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former CIA Director John Brennan ...director of the CIA under the Obama administration. One of the deeper dwelling denizens of the Deep State, probably the guy who lit the match that launched the Russiagate coup attempt... and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Graham added he did not know if former National Security Advisor Susan Rice and former Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes would be called to testify before his committee but said he was deferring to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, to investigate matters pertaining to the period between the 2016 presidential election and inauguration.
[JUSTTHENEWS] Attorney General William Barr has asked John Bash, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Texas, to review the practice of "unmasking" during the 2016 presidential election.
The probe was announced Wednesday night by Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec on Fox News.
Barr has asked Bash to focus on the unmasking, amid U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut John Durham’s larger review of the federal government’s Russia collusion investigation.
"Unmasking" is a term used by the U.S. intelligence community to refer to revealing the identity of U.S. citizens whose communications are being monitored.
That practice came to light during the recent release of declassified information that showed several B.O. regime officials sought to learn the identity of Michael Flynn, a member of the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and Trump's first National Security Adviser, whose communications were monitored during the Russia collusion probe.
Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI in connection to the probe. But revelations about the probe in the recently released documents have resulted in the Justice Department asking a federal court to drop the Flynn case.
[BREITBART] Former Vice President Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden ...We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created ... by the — you know — you know, the thing... is backtracking on the idea that his eventual running mate will be a woman of color.
Biden, who is facing criticism after appearing to claim that African Americans considering voting for President Donald Trump ...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States... "ain’t black," told CNN’s Dana Bash on Tuesday during an interview that he was not ready to promise to put a woman of color on the ticket despite rumors in recent weeks that he was heading in that direction.
"Look, I’m not going to get into that now because we haven’t gotten there yet," the former vice president said when asked if his running mate would be a woman of color. "There are women of color under consideration and there are women from every part of the country under consideration." "I've got binders of wymyns"
"There’s a lot of really qualified women that are ready to be president, but I’m not making that commitment," Biden added.
The former vice president’s declaration comes as speculation about who will be his running mate has increased in recent weeks. Biden, himself, has only stoked such talk. Earlier this year, Biden promised that his running mate would be a woman, then followed that up by asserting that whoever he ultimately chose would have to be "ready to be president on a moment’s notice."
While the former vice president has engaged in such discussion publicly, his allies within the Democrat camp have been actively pushing for a woman of color. The effort largely stems from the outsize influence black voters have on the Democrat primary and the general election. That influence was seen at the outset of the presidential primaries this year when Biden’s campaign flopped in the first two early voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire. Although most political analysts were quick to write off his White House ambitions after those defeats, Biden rallied his campaign by scoring a landslide win in South Carolina thanks to his longstanding support among black voters, who made up nearly two-thirds of the state’s primary electorate.
[SpaceNews] SpaceX gets FAA approval for Starship flight tests!
SpaceX has received a license from the Federal Aviation Administration allowing the company to carry out suborbital flight tests of its Starship next-generation launch vehicle.
The FAA’s Office of Commercial Space Transportation published the launch license May 28 for what it calls the Starship Prototype Launch Vehicle. The license allows SpaceX to conduct suborbital flights of the vehicle from its test facility in Boca Chica, Texas, near Brownsville.
SpaceX has been conducting a series of static-fire tests of the latest Starship prototype, called SN4, including one May 28. The company has not formally announced when it will attempt an initial “hop” test of that vehicle.
There is a temporary flight restriction for the airspace above that test site for June 1, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern, restricting airspace up to an altitude of 26,000 feet (7,925 meters), suggesting SpaceX may attempt a low-altitude free flight of the vehicle then. Similar restrictions have been filed in the past and then canceled, however. Flight restrictions have also been used for static-fire tests, but to much lower altitudes.
Any sort of flight test of Starship would require either a launch license or a less restrictive experimental permit from the FAA. A previous prototype vehicle, Starhopper, had a permit from the FAA, which allowed it to carry out a single flight in August 2019 to an altitude of about 150 meters, landing on a nearby pad at the Boca Chica site about a minute after liftoff.
The conditions of that permit, though, limited SpaceX to just a single Starhopper flight to that altitude. By contrast, the launch license for Starship places no overt restrictions on the number of flights or their altitude, beyond being suborbital flights that both take off and land at Boca Chica. The vehicle must follow the “ground track and trajectory presented in the license application,” but those details, along with the application itself, are not disclosed.
Musk, at a September 2019 event unveiling an earlier prototype of Starship, said he didn’t envision difficulties getting the FAA license despite the months of work needed to amend the Starhopper permit to allow just a single 150-meter hop. “I feel pretty optimistic about things. I don’t see any fundamental obstacles,” he said of the licensing process.
That event showed off what the company called the Starship Mark 1 vehicle, which Musk promised would soon fly. “This thing is going to take off, fly to 65,000 feet, about 20 kilometers, and come back and land, in about one or two months,” he said then.
Instead, the Mark 1 vehicle was destroyed in a tank pressurization test in November. A second prototype, called SN1, suffered the same fate in a similar test Feb. 28. After stripping down the SN2 vehicle to its tanks for testing, a third prototype, SN3, crumpled in an April 3 test, apparently because of a misconfigured test setup.
The latest vehicle, SN4, passed its pressurization test April 27 and has since performed several static-fire tests using a single Raptor engine installed in its base. Musk has suggested in recent comments, including an Aviation Week interview, that the first hop test might be a “few weeks” away as the company focuses on the launch of the Demo-2 commercial crew mission.
