  1. I don’t believe it, but this tweet stuck out like a sore thumb.
  2. Is he also a "stupid libtard?" If so, why did Trump put him in charge of the Marine Corp? https://www.huffpost.com/entry/general-robert-neller-border-unacceptable-risk_n_5c947d69e4b057f7330910cc
  3. Another L for Trump, though he has vowed to veto. https://news.yahoo.com/senate-votes-to-block-trumps-emergency-at-border-veto-looms-184605180.html?soc_src=newsroom&soc_trk=com.apple.UIKit.activity.CopyToPasteboard&.tsrc=newsroom
  4. There have been signs of slowing the last few months, with many forecasters lowering GDP growth estimates. The bond market has also shown indications, FED, this week, lowered its forecast, and completed changed its guidance from 3 months ago, when it was implying more rate increases, to now implying none. Now today, the bond market is starting to invert with the 3 month bond rate equalling the 10 year bond rate. This is the first time that has happened since 2007. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-22/u-s-treasury-yield-curve-inverts-for-first-time-since-2007 What will be funny about this, IF it happens, is that President Trump will deny it and if he harps on how it is "fake", which he likely will, he will publicly tinker with the FED, will likely dismiss any advisers who do not agree with him that everything is great and do other stuff to actually make it worse. All along some of his base, who will likely be the first to start suffering, will be in weird situation of experiencing the slowdown as their "Boss" tells them how great everything is.
  5. Trump is going to win reelection because the Dems are too stupid. @chef pointed out that he wasn't sure if "too stupid" is the right phrase and I agree. As he pointed out, This is the gist of why I said what I said. The Dems just don't get it. Look at the candidates they are putting forth. For Christ's sake, one would think they learned a hard lesson last election but apparently not. It's real simple. They almost won with Hillary, a terrible candidate. Trump was that bad of a candidate himself and he barely squeaked out the win. Now he's a President with a terrible approval rating, surrounded by scandals, that people are dying to remove from office. Literally all they need to do is run someone the people in swing states don't hate. But instead, we're apparently stuck with Burnout Bernie, unlikable Warren, Harris (a black woman), and a former VP who declined to run last time. These people couldn't get enough momentum to beat Hillary, and she lost to Trump. They aren't going to win this election either, they'll just cause more vote splitting. For Christ sake, Warren is talking about trying to get rid of the electoral college (LOL). Again, it's real simple. Unify together behind a single candidate, who should be a white male (to remove racism/sexism from influencing votes).
  6. Oh right if it was other way around.. would be all over the news. It’s sad how dangerous these guys are all because of Trump.. scary to think how many more of these guys are out there waiting to attack people of color or form other countries especially middle eastern or Hispanic
  7. https://www.wsj.com/articles/boeing-to-make-key-change-in-max-cockpit-software-11552413489 There are many negative thing I can say here. But really. Wow.
  8. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/03/19/trump-is-losing-so-much-court-that-allies-are-getting-tired-it/ The Washington Post’s Fred Barbash and Deanna Paul are out with a must-read analysis of the Trump administration’s losses in federal courts, which now number 63 in about two years — a number that notably includes multiple losses on some individual actions. One former longtime aide in the Justice Department’s civil division said that in his 30 years of service, it was an unprecedented amount of losing. And even advocates of the kind of regulatory reform Trump has undertaken are dumbfounded by how the administration could lose so much, and actually deserve to. Perhaps more tellingly, a lot of the losses seem to result from a simple lack of due diligence. About two-thirds of them involve the Administrative Procedure Act. The APA requires the government to defend policy changes using facts and evidence, and sometimes requires allowing the public to express its views via a comment period. Here’s the most eye-popping paragraph: The normal “win rate” for the government in such cases is about 70 percent, according to analysts and studies. But as of mid-January, a database maintained by the Institute for Policy Integrity at the New York University School of Law shows Trump’s win rate at about 6 percent. One expert on administrative law, William W. Buzbee, said people in the administration “don’t even come close” to explaining their actions, “making it very easy for the courts to reject them because they’re not doing their homework.”
  9. 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.
  10. You libtards can let me know if I'm wrong on anything. 1. Anti Trump, they hate anything he does and what he stands for. They disagree with his executive order to build a wall. They opposed him on the government shutdown. They opposed his tax bill. https://www.dailykos.com/campaigns/forms/tell-congress-to-block-trumps-fake-national-emergency-declaration?detail=emailaction&link_id=0&can_id=cbccc8ece762e703609c1e0519bbd29e&source=email-add-your-name-to-block-trumps-blatant-power-grab-3&email_referrer=email_501182&email_subject=add-your-name-to-block-trumps-blatant-power-grab http://act.democracyforamerica.com/sign/no-wall-funding/?t=6&refcode=g-shutdown0103.d-20190105.m-15822.s-52576&referring_akid=15822.1761250.Z7qALm 2.

  11. If there’s ever been a lawsuit to violate Rule 11, this might take the cake. He’s suing because some anonymous twitterers hurt his feelings. Also, I’d like to direct you to the Streisand Effect.
  12. So much that the mods here are acting like chickens and burying this so they don’t have to reply to it or talk about cowardice . whats the matter? Why won’t you respond to real news?
  13. Since no one else wants to get this party started, here we go. I was initially fairly impressed with Harris. I thought she had a bit of an it factor - a little star power. And I thought with her being a member of a black sorority that is big in the South, that would give her a huge advantage when the primary heads to the South, as black women make up a large percentage of democratic primary voters in Southern states. But you talk to black folks and there is plenty of them giving her a little side eye. A little bit is due to the relationship with the politician out in California, and then plenty of it is due to her work and time as a prosecutor. If Harris can't catch fire among the black community in the South (and she has not - yet), then I don't see a path to victory for her. She appeals to a lot more than that, but she has to excite black democratic primary voters to win the nomination, and I am not seeing it on the ground. I know I'm a white dude in little ol' Macon Georgia but I am fairly plugged in to the urban ground game/organizer community here. Attitude about Harris seems to be fairly meh. That's trouble, potentially. But the other side of that is black democrats didn't jump in Obama's lap either. Lots of folks like to claim identity politics and everythying among Democrats, but Hillary had all of the support in the black community initially, including from party leaders like Lewis, and the local community organizers, at least here in Macon. It wasn't really until after Obama won Iowa and started to pick up steam that he started gaining the support from the black leadership. Anyway, thoughts on Harris?
  14. As Russia collusion fades, Ukrainian plot to help Clinton emerges Let's see the comrades address this. Or will they run and hide by deleting or moving the post?
  15. Crisps makes more sense?
  16. I'd guess he'll go to the top and likely be the candidate. He's a younger more Obama like candidate than Biden He's also the Anti Trump
  17. https://www.charlestoncitypaper.com/TheBattery/archives/2019/03/14/lindsey-graham-comes-to-trumps-rescue-once-again-blocking-resolution-to-make-mueller-report-public Lindsey Graham comes to Trump's rescue once again, blocking resolution to make Mueller report public On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham single-handedly blocked a resolution that would have supported the public release of special prosecutor Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. South Carolina's entire House delegation, Republicans and Democrats, voted in favor of the resolution. In fact it passed the lower chamber without a single "nay" vote. Graham's opposition to the resolution is the latest move by the senior senator to come to the defense of President Donald Trump Objecting to Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's request for unanimous consent to pass the resolution on Thursday, Graham asked that it be amended to appoint an entirely new special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton's emails. (No, seriously. Not joking.) In an entirely unexpected show of goodwill toward Trump, Graham also said today he would support the veto of a resolution opposing the president's emergency declaration to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
  18. Donald Trump is starting to push for this idea of a mandatory year of service to the federal government. I cannot think of a worse idea. The most authoritarian idea anybody has had in years. We need to fight this no matter what party and what ideology it is wrong! Some scary shit there. What is he thinking? It brings to mind Hitler youth and brown shirts.
  19. Will announce running for President. Does not pretend to be a Native American. Looks nice. Has my vote.
  20. https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/19/politics/michael-cohen-warrant-documents/index.html Washington (CNN)Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators were allowed to review years of Michael Cohen's emails and other online data from the time he worked under Donald Trump, according to federal warrants released Tuesday. The documents show that Cohen, Trump's former lawyer and fixer, was a target of Mueller almost immediately after the special counsel was appointed in May 2017 and how extensively Mueller tracked computer data of those close to then-candidate Trump in the early days of his presidency. In all, prosecutors and the FBI received permission to execute four search warrants for Cohen's two Gmail accounts and stored data in his Apple iCloud account in July, August and November 2017 -- long before Cohen's office was raided in April 2018 and he pleaded guilty in an illegal campaign contribution and tax prosecution led by Manhattan federal prosecutors.

  22. Can't figure out this one, and what her angle is, but it does not appear that Democrats are buying any of what she is selling. I could see her running out of funds pretty quickly and dropping out.
