  1. https://politicalwire.com/2019/09/18/whistleblower-complaint-about-trump-promise/ Hasn't been released yet who it was but I'll give you one guess..... and let's be honest, you wont even need to guess bc we all already know who it was.
  2. I like Warren, and especially like that her main issue seems to be one that NOBODY is willing to address - the imbalance between consumers and corporations. And she does it in just the right way, and is very thoughtful about it. Her position (which is correct) is that if you are in favor of capitalism and free markets, then you have to regulate and monitor large corporations and keep them from using their dominance and power to crush competition and hurt consumers. I think Warren will/could make a hell of a Senate Majority leader one day, or some other very powerful position. While she is uniquely qualified and capable and intelligent, she is also uniquely terrible as a Presidential candidate IMO. And I think she is a very bad match for Trump. She doesn't seem able to resist the urge to take his bait. That could end up really handicapping her in a one on one with Trump. And I think Warren would have a real chance of getting Trump re-elected. I love her on the sidelines, throwing bombs and getting under Trump's skin. But as she enters the realm of presidential politics, I fear it will be him dragging her down.
  3. Climate change has never been emphasized in any presidential campaign like it is this year. The radicalization of the lie the attempts to scare people into giving up their cheap energy and freedoms. It has nothing to do with climate and weather and is not grounded in real science. The science of climate change is merely a theory. There is no concrete real science that proves that climate change is real and that we are the cause of it and therefore can stop it. That is a lie. What we can say about climate change is that it is anti development and for those living in the developing world that is bad news. We are telling these people they cannot have industry, cars and air conditioning because it ruins our planet. 36% of the world's population live in just 2 countries, China and India. Those 2 countries combined produce 140% more carbon emissions than we do. So even if we were to cut our emissions in half their continued development could completely off set what we did. We cannot control other countries except through force. The only way we can get 2/3 of the world to adopt our draconian emissions standards is through economic force. We need to force them into greater poverty and economic atrophy. What is moral about that?
  4. After the drone strikes on the Saudi oil facilities, my first reaction was who would benefit from this attack. I've seen reports of Mike Pompeo blaming Iran. Again, my question why would Iran benefit from an attack on the Saudis? Now we have new reports that the attack was by Yemeni rebels. So, was it Iran or Yemeni rebels? https://www.wsj.com/articles/drone-strikes-spark-fires-at-saudi-oil-facilities-11568443375?mod=trending_now_1 https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2019/09/14/drone-attack-saudi-arabia-yemeni-rebels-set-fire-oil-facilities/2325055001/
  5. Joe is going to pout 720 million women to work! Notice how Joe Biden a former senator and VP does not seem to know the difference between a tax write off and a tax credit. A tax credit is money that the government just gives you. Currently you can write off $3000 per child or $6000 for more than one child for child care expenses. You actually write off 35% of that. Joe might have misspoke by saying 720M instead of 720K but it is his entire lack of understanding about the issue that should bother people. He is fucking clueless!
  6. https://politicalwire.com/ President Trump said that the United States could end the nearly 19-year war in Afghanistan “very quickly” if he chose to do so but that it would involve killing “tens of millions” of people, the Washington Post reports. So.. I am guessing nuking the country is his plan B? They have a population of 35 million.
  7. The Whitewater investigations didn’t lead to any charges relating to Whitewater. Clinton’s impeachment came entirely from charges relating to the Lewinsky affair. The various Benghazi hearings didn’t lead to any damning Benghazi-related evidence that Republicans could use against Hillary. It did, however, lead to an investigation of her email. Like it or not, Democrats aren’t going to just stop investigating. They already have plenty of leads to go after relating to hush money, bank fraud, tax returns, etc. They are going to try to do whatever they can to expose dirt on Trump heading into 2020.
  8. https://www.dailywire.com/news/50825/proud-boy-members-face-15-years-behind-bars-after-amanda-prestigiacomo It waa never about self defense yet Antifa pussies went to them. Engaged them during a planned event. Really don't care who is right or wrong in this, just that pussy ass Antifa fake tough guys got their ass beat.
  9. Despite being outspent by Democrats, both Republicans won the open House seats in North Carolina. What does it mean? Straightforward conservatism, the stellar economy, and not being crazy, all count for something.
  10. Trump using Scottish airport to refuel C17s so airmen can stay Turnberry. Costs more for jet fuel, puts $ in Trump's pocket. Propping up nearby airport so it won't close and negatively impact traffic to the golf resort.https://www.politico.com/story/2019/09/06/air-force-trump-scottish-retreat-1484337
  11. Most historians blame tariffs for the start of the Great Depression. Well we got tariffs "trumped" by more tariffs and adding to that the uncertainty, which financial markets hate more than anything, of mad man where his rants change on a dime and you get................................. Look at the 180 degree change within hours: Trump Signals Regret Over China Trade War “President Trump expressed a note of regret on Sunday that his trade war with China had spiraled into an international quagmire, answering ‘yes’ when a reporter asked if he had ‘second thoughts’ about his tactics,” the Washington Post reports. “Asked if he was rethinking the way tensions had escalated between the two countries, Trump responded ‘Yeah, sure why not. Might as well. Might as well. I have second thoughts about everything.'” “He also appeared to dramatically dial back his threat to force U.S. companies to stop doing business with China, something he had insisted he had the power to do despite international alarm.” Later, Axios reports the White House walked back Trump’s comment: “The President was asked if he had ‘any second thought on escalating the trade war with China’. His answer has been greatly misinterpreted. President Trump responded in the affirmative – because he regrets not raising the tariffs higher.”
  12. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willie_Taggart Who is Willie Taggert you might ask? He is the head coach of Florida State university and so far has been a failure there. The reason I bring him up in the political section is that he did not deserve that hire. If he was white he would have never been considered for that job. He was experienced he had 7 years as a college head coach. 7 years where he had a losing record at 2 different schools. His record at Western Kentucky was 16-20. His record at South Florida was 24-25. His bowl record is 1-3. He "led" Oregon a program that averaged 10 wins a season in the previous decade to a 7-5 record. Does this look like the kind of track record that qualifies you to coach a top 10 college program and a $5M a year contract? No so when Taggert "led" Florida state to their first losing season since 1976(Yes 1976!) you had to wonder. Why? The case against Taggert grows after he lost at home to Boise St.
  13. Fact checked and 100% false. Trump never gave a penny. Tampa's Trump was contacted for verification and never replied. This is top shelf Fake News from trumpland. It got shared 1,100 times on facebook. The bots are busy gearing up for the 2020 election. Michael Jordan donated $1 million to Dorian relief as well as several Hollywood celebs but not Mr. Moneybags.
  14. This goes to more than just the Mueller report. We know Trump was individual 1 in the Stormy Daniels pay off and he lied. Trump gave his kids security clearances despite them failing the screening process, and lied about it. Trump has also violated the emoluments clause and has benefited monetarily from being president. Deutsche bank records are also on the way. This was the reason Trump ordered Mueller fired.
  15. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9284293/explosions-oil-tankers-gulf-of-oman-iran/ It is the assessment of the United States government that the Islamic Republic of Iran is responsible for the attacks that occurred in the Gulf of Oman today," Pompeo told reporters. "This assessment is based on intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation, recent similar Iranian attacks on shipping, and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication. “Taken as a whole, these unprovoked attacks present a clear threat to international peace and security,” he said. I have a tough time believing the government of Iran would do something like this, but of course Pompeo is immediately saying it was Iran. This isn’t good at all.
  16. "According to a new rule published in the Federal Register , asylum seekers who pass through another country first will be ineligible for asylum at the U.S. southern border. The rule, expected to go into effect Tuesday, also applies to children who have crossed the border alone." https://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2019-07-15/trump-moves-to-end-asylum-protections-for-central-americans
  17. https://sports.yahoo.com/irans-woman-ban-fifa-in-spotlight-after-female-soccer-fan-sahar-khodayari-dies-from-setting-herself-on-fire-202045786.html?hl=1&noRedirect=1 An Iranian woman arrested and detained for attending a soccer match in the country died this week after setting herself on fire once she discovered she could be jailed for the transgression, the Associated Press reported. Khodayari disguised herself as a man to attend Tehran’s Azadi Stadium and watch her favorite team, Esteghlal, play the United Arab Emirates team, Al Ain, in March. Khodayari had to disguise herself as a man to watch her favorite team in person because women are forbidden from attending in Iran. They’re also forbidden to watch in public places, such as restaurants. Religious leaders argue it violates Muslim law promoting piety. The ban has been in place since the 1979 Islamic Revolution and was briefly rescinded in 2006, per the Washington Post. This past October, women were allowed to attend their national team’s friendly in a separate section of the stadium from men. Hundreds flocked to the stadium for their opportunity. Something has to be done about this. It's 2019 and Women can't even ATTEND soccer games in Iran?! Upsetting to see how the women's soccer players in our country don't have petitions against this but only on rules that are affecting them.
  18. GOOD GOD DAMN. Relative to the power, access, and privilege, I firmly believe Trump is the dumbest person to ever walk the face of the planet. https://www.apnews.com/416144d854fb4302a9f34cccae81b0e0 This is dangerous, illegal, embarrassing, and cringeworthy. The way he has handled this whole situation has been a debacle. Skipping Poland (who he congratulated for getting invaded by Nazi in WWII) to golf at his own hotel, all while "suggesting" his minion-level vice president stay at his hotel 3 hours away from where he is doing business. Fuck taxpayer money right? Fuck respecting history right? What a time to be alive. Oh, and before our conservative friends come in here--I'd like to suggest we play a little game called defend Trump's actions. Can you do it without mentioning a democrat, abortion, or one of your other usual talking points? Can you actually prove that Trump isn't an embarrassing moron just by talking about his actions this past week? You. Can't. Do. It.

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/51436/ca-governor-signs-bill-permitting-citizens-ignore-hank-berrien Anyone who would support fining citizens for not putting themselves in harm's way is an idiot and thief. They are to find ways to protect citizens. Not force them to be acting officers johnny on the spot. Not find ways to extort them. Glad to see there's a Dem with a brain.
  20. New York Times is breaking a story that Jerry Falwell Jr. was blackmailed by Michael Cohen to endorse President Trump or it would run with the story he and his wife both had sex with a pool boy who later partnered with Falwell to build a gay hostel with Falwell as primary investor. MIAMI BEACH — Senator Ted Cruz was running neck and neck with Donald J. Trump in Iowa just before the caucuses in 2016, but his campaign was expecting a last-minute boost from a powerful endorser, Jerry Falwell Jr. But when the time came for an announcement, Mr. Falwell rocked the Cruz campaign and grabbed the attention of the entire political world. He endorsed Mr. Trump instead, becoming one of the first major evangelical leaders to get behind the thrice-married, insult-hurling real estate mogul’s long-odds presidential bid. Mr. Falwell — who is not a minister and spent years as a lawyer and real estate developer — said his endorsement was based on Mr. Trump’s business experience and leadership qualities. A person close to Mr. Falwell said he made his decision after “consultation with other individuals whose opinions he respects.” But a far more complicated narrative is emerging about the behind-the-scenes maneuvering in the months before that important endorsement. That backstory, in true Trump-tabloid fashion, features the friendship between Mr. Falwell, his wife and a former pool attendant at the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach; the family’s investment in a gay-friendly youth hostel; purported sexually revealing photographs involving the Falwells; and an attempted hush-money arrangement engineered by the president’s former fixer, Michael Cohen.
  21. Earlier this year, the Texas legislature passed the following bills that went into effect on September 1st. Ironically, these laws went into effect a day after a gunmen killed seven and injured twenty one people in Odessa and Midland, Texas. Allow licensed handgun owners to carry weapons in places of worship, including churches and synagogues. Ban landlords and homeowners from prohibiting tenants to own, carry and transport guns on their property. Prevent school districts from prohibiting licensed gun owners — including school employees — from storing guns and ammunition in school parking lots as long as ¡t is not in plain view. Allow foster homes to store firearms. Prevent citizens for being charged for carrying a handgun without a license while evacuating or returning to a declared disaster zone. Allow disaster shelters to take in evacuees who have guns. Allow schools to have more armed marshals on campus. . Defend licensed gun owners who unknowingly enter designated gun-free zones as long as they leave after being told about the policy.
  22. During the Obama administration the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) tried to enforce regulations on the payday loan industry and some of their shady tactics. For example, these lenders avoid financial regulations by charging loan fees instead of interest. So, a borrower can take out a $100 loan until their next payday. Even if it's just two weeks to their next payday and a loan fee of $20.00, that would equate to an APR of 521%. Most of the time, the borrower doesn't pay the entire principal by the next payday and the calculated APR increases. During the Obama administration, the CFPB tried to implement underwriting standards to require the lenders to verify borrowers' incomes, obtain credit reports, and project the borrowers' income after basic living expenses to determine the borrowers' ability to repay. They tried to The Trump administration is removed many of the underwriting rules and restrictions on the lenders. In April 2019, there were some regulations that were going to go into effect in August 2019, but the CFPB decided to delay the regulations until November 2020. By the way, in April 2018, the payday lenders' trade group, the Community Financial Services Association of America, held its annual conference at Trump National Doral Golf Club near Miami, Florida. I wonder why.
