    Iran: Revolution?

    It seems like the policy of the United States remains to not allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon. Whether this is the right policy, I'm honestly not sold either way. Israel is preparing for war with Iran because the nuclear deal talks are in a critical phase and Blinken said the other day that he is no longer optimistic about a deal getting done (things shifted when Russia pulled out of good faith negotiations, another side affect of this Ukraine War). The United States is going to be in a tough spot. Israel at some point will attack Iran on a massive scale if a deal is not reached. My guess is that the US will support Israel. A few weeks back, in between negotiating with NATO on Ukraine and holding high level meetings with the Europeans, the WH hosted the Israeli Defense Minister and several Israeli Generals for "high stakes" in person talks. Things are about to get even more volatile geopolitically and the Iran situation is in a critical phase, nearing a tipping point. The US needs to increase defense spending and prepare for war on multiple fronts if it comes to our doorstep. The Two Front War Defense policy needs to be restored immediately, and an arms race must begin, and we have to decidedly win it. On AUKUS - the Austrailian / UK / United States Defence Alliance They recently extended their pact to include joint development and technology sharing on hypersonic missiles. The US last week successfully conducted tests of their new hypersonic missile system from an aircraft, per multiple reports. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/apr/05/aukus-pact-extended-to-development-of-hypersonic-weapons Things are ratcheting up globally - get ready for it. This is just the beginning of a much more volatile global security environment than any of us have seen in a long time.
  2. Go to the 7:00 mark to see what Elon says about Jesusantity. I know what Jesus said about the devil. He is a liar and the father of all lies. I guess standing up for people in power to have freedom to tell lies over the number one source of information in America is what makes them love Elon.
  3. thank you. we have now joined to express good for this world. just a second of our time has spread through the consciousness of the world. peace
  4. Since January, Schumer and Warren have been pointing at Biden to forgive federal student loans. Today, Pelosi set the record straight. "The President can only postpone payments. Forgiveness requires an act of Congress." https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/national/pelosi-holds-weekly-news-conference/2021/07/28/fac066ef-492b-4d4d-9a11-fa80dd3153e1_live.html Why are Schumer and Warren not simply pushing for this in a reconciliation package?
  5. Hopefully the first order of business for the Republican Congress is impeach the failed loser Mayoykas. He is a lying POS, and has failed miserably on the border. https://www.nationalreview.com/news/dhs-secretary-mayorkas-was-informed-whipping-incident-was-bogus-hours-before-he-condemned-border-patrol-agents/
  6. https://finance.yahoo.com/m/b24145a4-465a-3ff4-b3cd-afced08cc1d0/trump-lawyers-sanctioned-for.html A federal judge in Florida has imposed monetary sanctions on a team of former President Donald Trump’s lawyers, castigating them for filing a “frivolous” lawsuit against Hillary Clinton and other Democrats earlier this year. In a scathing 19-page decision, U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks said a group of lawyers for Mr. Trump, led by Alina Habba and Peter Ticktin, showed a “cavalier attitude towards facts” throughout the brief history of the case. The judge, who dismissed the case in September, ordered the Trump lawyers to pay a combined $50,000 monetary penalty to the court and to reimburse a public-relations executive, Charles Dolan, for approximately $16,200 he spent defending himself in the litigation.
  7. https://www.reuters.com/business/media-telecom/jury-alex-jones-defamation-case-begin-deliberations-punitive-damages-2022-08-05/ I personally find this hilarious. Let it be a lesson to all the assholes who have made a career out of deliberate and provocative manipulation of the truth at the expense of all the rest of us.
  8. Putin Ally Admits to Interfering in Elections Yevgeny Prigozhin, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, said that Russia has interfered in US elections in the past and would continue to do so, Insider reports. Said Prigozhin: “We have interfered, we are interfering and we will continue to interfere. Carefully, accurately, surgically and in our own way, as we know how to do.” https://politicalwire.com/2022/11/07/putin-ally-admits-to-interfering-in-elections/ Not that this is a surprise to anyone actually paying attention.

    Jan 6th Hearings

    With the public hearings starting on the 9th, i figured we needed a thread on it. Trump on Trial The Brookings Institution has released a comprehensive guide to this week’s hearings by the January 6 Committee. “The issue of criminality is central to the congressional hearings commencing on June 9, 2022… The report covers key players in the attempt to overturn the election, the known facts regarding their conduct, and the criminal law applicable to their actions.”
  10. https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/20/politics/hillary-clinton-robby-mook-fbi/index.html Democrats believed a lie? Do you still believe a vetted president was an agent of Russia?
  11. Republican senator from Nebraska - going back into academia.
  12. The New World Order was discussed here a lot. The US citizens were to become less affluent, so people around the world could have more. Now, MAGA forgot. I doubt they understood what was going on. The real rich would remain real rich. Us worker bees would be less affluent. Our standard of living would still be more than the other world's. Does anyone remember this?
  13. https://politicalwire.com/2022/09/23/trumps-secret-court-fight-to-block-a-grand-jury/ Trump’s Secret Court Fight to Block a Grand Jury September 23, 2022 at 12:49 pm EDT By Taegan Goddard 38 Comments Donald Trump’s attorneys “are fighting a secret court battle to block a federal grand jury from gathering information from an expanding circle of close Trump aides about his efforts to overturn the 2020 election,” CNN reports. “The high-stakes legal dispute – which included the appearance of three attorneys representing Trump at the Washington, DC, federal courthouse on Thursday afternoon – is the most aggressive step taken by the former President to assert executive and attorney-client privileges in order to prevent some witnesses from sharing information in the criminal investigation events surrounding January 6, 2021.” “The court fight over privilege, which has not been previously reported and is under seal, is a turning point for Trump’s post-presidency legal woes.”
  14. I personally don't think Dems will be able to pass the wish list bill, but there's a growing discussion on reforming the Electoral Count Act of 1887. McConnell signaled he'd be open to talks, which my guess would be he would only support it if Dems backed off the transformative stuff. Schumer isn't buying it, but if I'm him, I'd take it plus reforming the pre-clearance portion that got struck out by SCOTUS in 2013. SCOTUS did so because (in their words), the 1965 legislation put the burden on the former confederate states and recommended reforming it to all 50 states. IMO that would go a long way and would be easier to pass than mandating 2 weeks of early voting everywhere, etc. My fear is the "go big or go home" blows up in Dems faces with nothing passed at all.
