Guess it wasn't a conspiracy theory after all....

President Trump says he believes Ukrainian jet was shot down by mistake and 'something very terrible happened, very devastating' as Pentagon official says the plane WAS downed by Iranian missile
Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 crashed outside of Tehran on Wednesday, killing all 176 on board
US intelligence are 'confident' the airliner was shot down by Iran after detecting two missile launches
Pentagon officials said missiles likely fired in error by crews on alert for US response to Iran rocket strike

Iran claims that the crash was the result of mechanical error and that black box may have been 'damaged'
President Trump said: 'Somebody could have made a mistake. I have a feeling something terrible happened.

journalists' favorite phrase is "president trump says ________ with no evidence"  as a method to discredit him.  do they not think that the president of the united states possibly has more info than they do?  no, that can't be....must undermine orange man...

Warren campaign scrambling for survival

Elizabeth Warren’s once-surging Democratic presidential nomination bid is losing steam.

After largely shunning national television interviews, the Massachusetts senator, 70, appeared on Sunday morning news programs and MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show. She also unveiled a scarce endorsement from a former rival for the 2020 Democractic presidential nomination, hosting a rally this week with Julian Castro, 45, in New York. And she bounded into the New Year with campaign trips to Iowa and New Hampshire.

But, while she’s built a strong organizing network of paid field staff and volunteers in the states hosting the first two nominating contests, she’s making her final push ahead of the start of the primary season with soft polling and fundraising numbers. She was even outraised in the final quarter of 2019 by former Vice President Joe Biden, 77, whose own struggles with donors have been well documented.

“There are three tickets out of Iowa and New Hampshire. You need to finish top three in one of those states, unless we are looking at a brokered convention, which is a possibility, given the fluidity of this race,” Christopher Hahn, Aggressive Progressive podcast host and former Democratic strategist, told the Washington Examiner.

He is the funniest guy to ever occupy the White House...

Cory Booker drops out of presidential race after polling less than 2 per cent as Democratic field gets smaller and whiter and Donald Trump mocks: 'Now I can rest easy tonight!'

3 weeks to the Iowa hootenanny and like most of us here, I can't wait until it's over.

What interests me the most is Super Tuesday. Momentum will come via Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, but ST will push all of the Tier 2 candidates out of the race.

With the vast amount of cash Bloomberg and Steyer are spending in California, they may pick up enough delegates to soldier on. Anyone want to guess how much each delegate has cost either of these two candidates? Example - if Bloomberg spent a verified $200m in ads and gets 10 delegates, that's $20m per delegate. In reality it's $200m Bloomberg burnt to a crisp since he won't be the nominee with 10 delegates.

For now I'm going to go with $20m per delegate for Bloomberg, and Steyer at $30m per delegate. Steyer spending less, but will get fewer delegates IMHO.

Full disclosure - just as in 2016, I'm rooting for a Sanders / Trump general election. Time will tell.....

Build that wall!!! (quietly happening without anyone noticing)

Donald Trump will shift another $7.2 BILLION in Pentagon funding to pay for his border wall this year after federal appeals court lifted injunction blocking last year's massive cash transfer
Trump administration will repurpose another $7.2 billion in Pentagon money, turning it into a border-wall fund
Brings the total to $18 billion that the president has managed to corral for it
A federal court blocked him in December from moving $3.6 billion to the Pentagon so the Army Corps of Engineers can build it
But an appeals court lifted the temporary injunction while the administration formally appeals the ruling
That freed the president to move ahead and emboldened him to redirect even more money for his signature construction project
