26% of Democrats want Trump (and the country) to fail...

57% of Democrats Want Trump to Succeed 
Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Republicans think Trump is likely to succeed, a view shared by only 17% of Democrats and 35% of voters not affiliated with either major party. Just over half (52%) of Democrats believe Trump is more likely to fail, but only seven percent (7%) of GOP voters and 28% of unaffiliateds agree.

But 57% of Democrats want Trump’s presidency to be a success. Of course, that compares to 91% of Republicans and 73% of unaffiliated voters. Twenty-six percent (26%) of voters in Hillary Clinton’s party want Trump to fail, while another 17% are undecided.
I still say that a successful Trump Presidency would be the greatest fear of many liberals. Not just because it would realize a second term and a full eight years of Trump, but because it would prove so many of the naysayers dead wrong.

Department-store chain Sears Holdings is seeking to stem its bleeding by closing another 150 stores, including 108 Kmart locations, and selling its Craftsman brand to raise cash.

Macy's is cutting 10,000 jobs.

Thanks President Twitter elect.

CH, go back eight years ago and see how many Republicans, Including yourself, wanted Barack Hussein Obama to fail.

Four teenagers face hate crime, aggravated kidnapping and other felony charges in connection with the torture and beating of a bound and gagged man in Chicago broadcast live on Facebook.

The 18-year-old suspects — identified as Jordan Hill, Tesfaye Cooper, Brittany Covington and Tanishia Covington — were charged Thursday ahead of an afternoon bond hearing.

The charges also include aggravated unlawful restraint and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi had tweeted Thursday morning that authorities were continuing to investigate the "senseless attack. The attackers, who are black, were heard yelling anti-white epithets at various points throughout the 30-minute video.

thanks for all that racial healing, 0linsky.

Yep, that again puts idiot simpletons like HB, Opium and Jane in the minority, in their own minority party.

KD, LOL @ HB Daily said...

We that voted for Trump are going to invoke the HB Rule for the next 8 years.

This is how the HB Rule goes, when something goes wrong in the Trump Presidency, we get to blame Obama. When something goes right , WE get to take full credit.

Since you like stats, probabilities and poll while declaring GW as being are some interesting probabilities about GW and how random it is.

But record and near record heat keep happening. Climate scientists say it's not random but from heat-trapping gas spewed by the burning of coal, oil and gas. You know, global warming. And one of their many pieces of evidence is how statistically unlikely it is for the world to have warmed so much.
So how likely are these temperatures to be random? The Associated Press consulted with statisticians to calculate the odds of this hot streak happening at random. Here are some statistics and the odds they calculated, with the caveat that high temperatures tend to persist so that can skew odds a bit:
The three hottest years on record—2014, 2010 and 2005—have occurred in the last 10 years. The odds of that happening randomly are 3,341 to 1, calculated John Grego of the University of South Carolina. Kai Zhu of Stanford University, Robert Lund of Clemson University and David Peterson, a retired Duke statistician, agreed.
Nine of the 10 hottest years on record have occurred in the 21st century. The odds of that being random are 650 million to 1, the statisticians said.
Thirteen of the 15 the hottest years on record have occurred in the last 15 years. The odds of that being random are more than 41 trillion to 1, the statisticians said.
All 15 years from 2000 on have been among the top 20 warmest years on record. They said the odds of that are 1.5 quadrillion to 1. A quadrillion is a million billion.
And then there's the fact that the last 358 months in a row have been warmer than the 20th-century average, according to NOAA. The odds of that being random are so high—a number with more than 100 zeros behind it—that there is no name for that figure, Grego said.

Opie has never quite understood that I believe that the world is warming and that it's not a random event.

Of course, the world is always either warming or cooling... never has actually stayed stagnant. Right now it happens to be warming. So how much of the warming is natural vs man made is still completely unknown (nor can it possibly be known with any accuracy).

Proving that the earth is warming is a little like proving that the earth is revolving around the sun. Of course, the fact that the earth is warming and revolving around the sun, still does nothing to prove the accuracy of the "warming models".

Something anyone who is reasonably intelligence would understand. Just those who (as Scott Adams suggests) are hallucinating about their understanding of warming models... would be naive enough to fall for... the earth is warming, therefor our warming models must be correct.

even the warming models where NOAA falsified the data?

opie said...

Of course, the world is always either warming or cooling

Pure genius CH. Your grasp of science is almost as good as your BS mental masturbation mind games. LOL. Of course it is propaganda and CO2 is not increasing. Since you think it is not a random event, why do you call the models speculation and GW propaganda? Seems to me you are a closet believer, but will never admit it. That is truly funny. As for rat's non sensible comment about data being false again shows what you and your side portrays, head in the sand and science lies just like trump. LOL

The U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s “statement of two years ago — that the global surface temperature has shown a much smaller increasing linear trend over the past 15 years than over the past 30 to 60 years’ — is no longer valid,” the study claims.

But that’s not all NOAA did to increase the warming trend in recent decades. Climate expert Bob Tisdale and meteorologist Anthony Watts noted that to “manufacture warming during the hiatus, NOAA adjusted the pre-hiatus data downward.”

“If we subtract the [old] data from the [new] data… we can see that that is exactly what NOAA did,” Tisdale and Watts wrote on the science blog Watts Up With That.

“It’s the same story all over again; the adjustments go towards cooling the past and thus increasing the slope of temperature rise,” Tisdale and Watts added. “Their intent and methods are so obvious they’re laughable.”

if the 'science is settled' i wonder why they felt compelled to lie?

It's simply incomprehensible.
Vladimir Putin and Julian Assange are enemies of our country. But the President elect has tweeted his admiration repeatedly. They don't have our best interest in mind. They are enemies of the United States Of America.

The CIA, FBI and the NSA are dedicated to the security of the United States. They risk their lives every single day, to keep our nation safe. The Republicans have been able to claim that they alone are to be trusted on security issues. Now, with a few exceptions, are standing side by side with The Commander in Tweet.

Donald Trump has no experience with the intelligence community.The same experience that our esteemed host has. He has only had a couple briefings. His incoherent and incredible arrogance blinded him to only what he chooses to believe. He flat out lied about the timing of the scheduled briefing. Via Twitter, of course. He says that he knows more than anyone else.

It needed to be posted again

Opie, it's cognitive dissonance. Stage four. rrb virus. There is no treatment.

McCain says it's an act of war.

TrumpTweet will attack at 2:00 AM

KD, -2 tonight, warming, my ass said...

IF the facts don't support the theory , just change the model.

Fooling the G W Climate idiots, works every time.
