    Virus in US

    I'd say it's time for discussion of coronavirus to reflect the facts that this is a US problem now. It's hard to trust the numbers when we aren't testing.

    Biden Endorsements

    Starting a new thread so that the other threads aren't crowded up with my endorsement posts. People who don't care about these at all or get annoyed by these posts can just ignore this thread and discuss other things in the other Biden thread. I think this is important to track in terms of party consolidation and momentum, as well as super delegates in the event of a contested convention. For anyone who may care about endorsements, here's a good tracking site, but it only tracks current politicians and party leaders: https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2020-endorsements/democratic-primary/ And Super delegate tracker here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_2020_Democratic_Party_automatic_delegates

    US Senate Race

    Figured we can use this thread for Senate race news going forward.
  4. https://rvat.org You can view the testimonies from GOPers who have finally had enough of Trump, from 45 states (plus D.C.): Barring another successful intervention campaign from his friends in Russia, Trump will lose in historic fashion. And America and the entire western world will celebrate. But I fully anticipate that Trump will claim "rigged election" and refuse to leave the White House voluntarily.
  5. In case you haven’t heard about this story, a right wing Republican congressman accosted AOC outside the capital in earshot of reporters and, among other things, called her a “fucking bitch”. He then refused to apologize to her when called out. So AOC went to the floor and pretty much dragged him in public. So at this point it is clear that AOC is so far under Republicans' skin that she is renting space in their heads. And she is pretty much taking no prisoners. The GOP will campaign against her like they used to with Pelosi, but she is crushing them in return. I didn’t give her a lot of credit when she won her seat a couple of years ago, but AOC is way smarter and more capable than anyone expected from her. Like her politics or hate her, she I going to be around for a long time if she wants to be there.

    Biden Cabinet

    Here's kind of how I could see a Biden administration looking based on reporting and connections, for the sake of political nerdery. We can use this thread to discuss Cabinet picks later on if Biden starts naming nominees before the election. I've put alternative options in parenthesis. Just something new to go back and forth about President: Joe Biden Vice President: Kamala Harris Advisors: Ted Kaufman, Steve Richetti, Mike Donilon, Bruce Reed, Jake Sullivan, Anita Dunn (Communications Director) Chief of Staff: Ron Klain Secretary of State: Susan Rice (John Kerry) Secretary of Defense: Michele Flournoy (Ash Carter) Secretary of Treasury: Lael Brainard (Janet Yellen) Attorney General: Doug Jones (Sally Yates) National Security Advisor: Antony Blinken (Susan Rice) Secretary of Homeland Security: Lisa Monaco (Tom Donilon) Secretary of Energy: Ernest Moniz (John Kerry) Secretary of Education: Inez Tannenbaum (Lily Eskelsen García) Secretary of HHS: Michelle Lujan Grisham (Vivek Murthy) Secretary of Commerce: Penny Pritzker (Gary Locke) Secretary of Veterans Affairs: Bob McDonald (Sloan Gibson/Pete Buttigieg) Secretary of Interior: Tom Udall (Ken Salazar) Secretary of Agriculture: Tom Vilsack (Blanche Lincoln) Secretary of Labor: Hilda Solis (Tim Ryan) Secretary of HUD: Cedric Richmond (Keisha Lance-Bottoms) Secretary of Transportation: Eric Garcetti (Anthony Foxx) Climate Czar: John Kerry (Carol Browner) OMB Director: Jeff Zients EPA Adminstrator: Carol Browner Trade Representative: Michael Froman (Tom Nides) UN Ambassador: Pete Buttigieg (Susan Rice) NATO Ambassador: Nicholas Burns (Pete Buttigieg) Council of Economic Advisors Chair: Jared Bernstein (Janet Yellen) Small Business Administration Director: Andrew Yang CIA Director: Avril Haines FBI Director: Val Demings (Eric Holder) NSA Director: William McRaven DNI: Tom Donilon (John Brennan) Secretary of the Navy: Mike Mullen (Ray Mabus) Secretary of the Army: Chuck Hagel (Seth Moulton) Secretary of the Air Force: Deborah Lee James (Michael Donley) SCOTUS Nominee: Ketanji Brown Jackson (to replace Breyer in a couple years) Point People on COVID: Vivek Murthy and Anthony Fauci. Could Murthy be restored to Surgeon General? There are a ton of other Biden allies that it would be great to find spots for as well, but alas there's limited room. Mabus will probably be Harris’ National Security Advisor but if not, should he Navy Secretary.
  8. https://religionnews.com/2020/06/02/ahead-of-trump-bible-photo-op-police-forcibly-expel-priest-from-st-johns-church-near-white-house/ Ahead of Trump Bible photo op, police forcibly expel priest from St. John's church near White House Religion News: “The photo opportunity had an eerie quality: Trump said relatively little, positioned stoically in front of the boarded-up church, which had been damaged the day before in a fire during protests sparked by the death of George Floyd.” “The church appeared to be completely abandoned. It was, in fact, abandoned, but not by choice: less than an hour before Trump’s arrival, armored police used tear gas to clear hundreds of peaceful demonstrators from Lafayette Square park, which is across the street from the church.” “Authorities also expelled at least one Episcopal priest and a seminarian from the church’s patio.” The White House released a video last night glorifying Trump’s photo op.
  9. The lagging indicator of banks and stocks taking hits are about to start showing up. Also keep an eye on the unemployment numbers. College towns are going to take huge hits this Fall. Regions reports $237 million net loss in second quarter https://www.al.com/business/2020/07/regions-reports-237-million-net-loss-in-second-quarter.html Big banks report mixed earnings results — Cramer and others on what to watch now David Konrad, managing director of equity research at D.A. Davidson, predicted the banks were unlikely to get an "all-clear sign" until 2021:
  10. Justices Rule Against Trump on Tax Returns July 9, 2020 The U.S. Supreme Court ruled the House of Representatives can see President Trump’s tax returns.
  11. @El Guapo is a knowledgeable and highly intelligent poster. He and I share a handful of the same opinions, Immigration, America First in trade and Law and Order. I have a lot of hope for this conversation because of El Guapo's brilliant mind and his communication skills. The reason I want to talk with him is because he's hands down the most sensible Republican leaning poster. I say leaning because he sure is not voting for Biden. Also, I had a thread about racism and straight asked him was he against the police killing a disproportional number of black people. His reply was a quick statical example of the number which showed the police killed a whole bunch of white people as well. Although an examination of these numbers could show some strange percentages when using populations of the two races, I was really floored. I looked into this and found cases of police shooting unarmed whites in America. That's wrong too, but seems more acceptable to some whites. But I realized this man is intelligent and quick to respond with facts. So, I'm going to skip the howdy do's and just dive in. I have a video I will post below that goes into some American history. I have said, black people need to do better. I even know exactly what one black person could do to move from poverty to a very decent upper middle class living. But it is my opinion that if I trained 10,000 people to do it, systematic racism would come in to stamp it out. ***Please do not come into this discussion with a bunch of one line attacks at El Guapo or especially me because everyone knows how sensitive I am. Instead, let us and anyone wants to participate with real intent to raise the level of awareness in the community have a conversation.
  12. https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/498738-senate-republicans-issue-first-subpoena-in-obama-era-probes Senate Republicans issued their first subpoena on Wednesday as part of wide-ranging investigations tied to the Obama administration, deepening a battle in Congress with implications for this fall's presidential race. The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted along party lines to issue a subpoena for Blue Star Strategies, a firm with ties to Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), the chairman of the panel, has homed in on the U.S. firm as he probes Hunter Biden's work for Burisma Holdings, where Biden — the son of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden — was a member of the board until he stepped down in 2019.
  13. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/jerry-falwell-jr-sought-michael-cohen-s-help-preventing-racy-n1003096 Trump's former personal lawyer and fixer was recorded talking about Falwell's predicament in phone call. Months before evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr.’s game-changing presidential endorsement of Donald Trump in 2016, Falwell asked Trump fixer Michael Cohen for a personal favor, Cohen said in a recorded conversation reviewed by Reuters. Cohen covered up Falwell's pics, kept one and then got Falwell do endorse Trump Likely blackmail They probably have something like this on Lindsay Graham

    Virus in China

    Not sure this is politics though there are political implications. This thing is really scary and almost impossible to contain. Looks like China, like most authoritarian/totalitarian states were slow to react and downplayed the situation. Much like The Soviet Union and the nuclear disaster.

    Rudy Giuliani

    Overdue, but this guy deserves his own thread. We should all be outraged at how Trump's "personal attorney" is involved in matters of national security. A personal attorney drafts wills, real estate deals, divorces, etc...doesn't visit foreign presidents with the atty general. This alone would be a derailing issue for any other president. I'm also floored at why he would ruin his legacy for Donal Trump? Given 9/11 and his role as mayor, it's amazing to that history will remember him as a lying stooge for idiot Trump.
  16. Another outstanding idea brought to you by the brain dead idiots on the left.
  17. Wow, I followed some crazy person's link to a Q non group on Facebook. These people are truly loony tunes. It is frightening to learn people are so deranged but at the same time, it is entertaining. Some of the topics from silly to outright crazy: Host of people complaining about not being able to buy bean bag chairs and other large items because those items are roped-off as non-essential in many stores. One lady posted a long video of her opining about how horrible that situation is equating it with the end of life as we know - oh no I cannot have have a new bean bag chair. Other silly rants. Then some really crazy stuff. There is a bunch of stuff about Bill Gates with some saying he is growing humans and implementing AI into them to create a new race of slaves. A bunch of other crazy stuff and the posters seem to really believe it versus it being parody. Then stuff about the virus being a prelude to defending an ancient child sex ring - yeah I have no idea what the connection is but they are convinced that Trump was fixing to end this ancient practice but in a last ditch effort the virus was created to defend the ring. I guess the internet enabled the loons a means to unite.
  18. Is this little fatty dead? I will always remember the many times he totally owned our dumber-than-dogshit President as he conned him into legitimization and photo opportunities. RIP to the little, fat, murderous shit.
  19. No benefits but increases risk of organ failure. The point of this should not be that the President was wrong on this drug but that he was wrong to promote any drug because he is not a medical professional. Also, it goes deeper: Promoting something to which he knows nothing is the opposite of what a President should do. He should put together experts to come up with professional solutions not grab at a lotto ticket in the glee that if in the remote chance it is successful he can take credit for doing something completely irresponsible. https://apnews.com/a5077c7227b8eb8b0dc23423c0bbe2b2 A malaria drug widely touted by President Donald Trump for treating the new coronavirus showed no benefit in a large analysis of its use in U.S. veterans hospitals. There were more deaths among those given hydroxychloroquine versus standard care, researchers reported. The nationwide study was not a rigorous experiment. But with 368 patients, it’s the largest look so far of hydroxychloroquine with or without the antibiotic azithromycin for COVID-19, which has killed more than 171,000 people as of Tuesday. The study was posted on an online site for researchers and has been submitted to the New England Journal of Medicine, but has not been reviewed by other scientists. Grants from the National Institutes of Health and the University of Virginia paid for the work. ..... Hydroxychloroquine made no difference in the need for a breathing machine, either. Researchers did not track side effects, but noted hints that hydroxychloroquine might have damaged other organs. The drug has long been known to have potentially serious side effects, including altering the heartbeat in a way that could lead to sudden death.

  21. In case you want to listen live on Tuesday at 10AM ET (or to a recorded version later) you can listen here: https://www.npr.org/2020/05/03/848317039/listen-live-supreme-court-arguments-begin-monday I know CNBC is also broadcasting it live so I’m sure other news outlets will also have it. CSPAN, too.
  22. I don’t believe it, but this tweet stuck out like a sore thumb.
