"They want his tax returns, they want everything on Russia, they want the dirt, and you know they'll use that subpoena power to get at it." Hey, Democrats are just doing what the Republicans in Congress failed to do when confronted with facts about possible problems. What's Trump hiding in the tax returns? Didn't Republicans muck rack Clinton to death when he took office? Who knows? The Trump investigations may yield about the same level of BS that was levied against Clinton, that he lied about having sex with an intern.

DANA D. KELLEY: Bipartisan, bilateral reform

Kelley are you referring to the doctored video produced by SHS that distorts Acosta's actions? Okay, I'll remember that when reading your columns in the future. Don't trust the "facts" you present when making a case.

First bills filed for '19 session include online sales tax measure, official state firearm and knife designations

Actually, most people call the primary system proposed by Douglas as "Top Two" which more accurately reflects the process. I've only heard it referred to as the "jungle primary" in LA. Most election experts refer to it as "Top Two." Regardless, it's a much better process, allowing two competent candidates to emerge from the primary instead of extreme candidates who survive the party primary's tendency to shift to the extremes. In fact, you could have two competent candidates from the same party on the ballot in November.

After gripes over high-profile rulings, legislators dispute Arkansas Supreme Court spending

"'Today we took steps to hold our Supreme Court accountable by holding their budget,' tweeted state Sen. Trent Garner, R-El Dorado, shortly after he left the committee meeting Thursday."
No Sen. Garner, you retaliated as you said you would do after your moronic issue didn't make the ballot, an issue that was fraught with problems including legislative overreach. You, Ballinger, and a few others prefer to govern by bully tactics rather than fair and just legislative process.

A simple pledge

Pack where was that ever in the mix? Republicans didn't get there either and actually lost one they were expected to retain (AZ). Ds did pretty well, including almost achieving the 40 you said they wouldn't. They exceeded what you expected. You attack tribal extremism and yet ignore those in here like moz and fake and slak and skeptic. Nice, very nice.

Migrants fill Tijuana shelters, more on way to U.S. border

JTFM my friend was traveling with the caravan to gain a better understanding of their conditions to help provide information to US agencies as well as help spread truth about the caravan. He found NO Middle Easterners and no evidence of MS-13 which the members would have alerted him to. He's not doing anything politically focused. Not sure what your point is other than you want to make things political much like Trump's little toy soldier political stunt before the mid-terms.
Boxer if you did research, which you usually don't do, you'd find towns along the trek have provided assistance and help as well as UN relief agencies. Your "95 percent" figure is WAY OFF and wrong. Another issue illiterate Trumpster. I'm amazed you can even find your way through a ballot.

A simple pledge

fake doesn't really matter any more than how many votes Trump lost the popular vote. Trump is president and Democrats control the House.
With regards as to how much will get done, not much was accomplished when Republicans controlled Congress and the presidency. ACA is still intact. We still don't have an infrastructure program. No wall has been built. The tax cuts put us $1.5 trillion in debt with little economic impact.

DDDK that number is expected to climb to 37 when some predicted 40, including Pack. Regardless what the margin is, Democrats still control the House and the margin is greater than what Republicans have in the Senate. Regardless how you might try to spin it, Democrats control the House and the committees.
Oh, and Trump still lost the popular vote by almost the population of the state of Arkansas. He's still unpopular with the majority of Americans.

Arkansas native, president of Human Rights Campaign stepping down

Chad has served HRC selflessly and provided some key leadership at a time when our nation was embracing equality for all, including LGBT individuals. Thank you for your leadership, Chad. Good luck in your next endeavor. It's always great to see you when you come back to visit the Natural State.

Pack the number is probably going to come in at 37 seats flipped. Yea, we missed the "wave" by 3. ROTFL at your comment. 37 was more than I and MOST were anticipating. Saw another interesting point. Trump claims to have carried Cruz across the finish line. Most polls saw Cruz's lead over O'Rourke drop after Trump's HOU visit. The predictable polls also pretty much hit it when it came to the margin of victory for Cruz. The outliers like Rasmussen missed it big time.
fake you mention one person and yet you only mention Waters when chastising the Democrats. You are such a hypocrite on your statements. That's why I say you drink. You have the consistency of a drunk when commenting.
