  1. Some decent candidates out there, but hard to find any good polling. Their convention is in May. I also wonder whether Schultz will run as an independent. Lincoln Chafee - RI Gov and Republican/Dem Senator. Always liked this guy having followed his career. Also - Max Abramson, Jacob Hornberger, John McAfee - /shrug My personal favorite: Vermin Supreme. Would likely make a better president than both Sanders and Trump.

    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.
  3. I don’t believe it, but this tweet stuck out like a sore thumb.
  4. Jesus. How stupid does his herd immunity idea look now?
  5. Do you support a statue in the public square of a general of a foreign army that attacked the US and killed hundreds of thousands of Americans?

    Super Tuesday

    So far NBC/CNN has projected: Biden wins VA, NC, AL, OK, TN, MN, AR, MA, TX, ME Bernie wins VT, CO, UT, CA Bloomberg wins American Samoa
  7. Governor of flori-duh. What a guy. I just saw him on tv touting the great job he's doing and still insisting schools will reopen. Florida is reopening schools in august unlike a lot of the rest of the country. The single highest new cases of ANY state so far. How in the world can this man claim he's doing a good job when he won't even order masks to be worn? Is this some kind of death wish? He's an idiot. Like all Trump supporters are. Trump managed to take once intelligent people and turn them into babbling morons.
  8. I never felt comfortable with the concept that a man was God. It seemed to me that this man-worship violated basic tenets of the 10 commandments. Adding to the “crime,” we see all the idols associated with this Jesus man worshipping religion. So, it’s like a double whammy. Don’t people see that? Anyway. Jesus was a man. Perhaps he was god’s messenger. But, he was no God. Btw: Jesus was dark, not quite black but certainly not white
  9. 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. I've put alternative options in parenthesis. Just something new to go back and forth about Update: Actual nominees are bolded and underlined. Others are just speculative or based on reports of contenders for the position. Biden Administration: President: Joe Biden Vice President: Kamala Harris Counselor to the President: Steve Richetti Senior Advisor: Mike Donilon Senior Advisor and WH Director of Public Engagement: Cedric Richmond Advisors: Ted Kaufman, Bruce Reed Chief of Staff: Ron Klain Deputy Chief of Staff: Jen O'Malley Dillon Director of Intergovernmental Affairs: Julie Chavez Rodriguez Director of WH Communications: Kate Bedingfield Press Secretary: Jen Psaki Deputy Press Secretary: Karine Jean-Pierre Chief VP Spokesperson: Symone Sanders Special Presidential Envoy for Climate: John Kerry National Climate Advisor: Gina McCarthy National Security Advisor: Jake Sullivan Secretary of State: Antony Blinken Secretary of Defense: Lloyd Austin Secretary of Treasury: Janet Yellen Attorney General: Merrick Garland Secretary of Homeland Security: Alejandro Mayorkas Secretary of Energy: Jennifer Granholm Secretary of Education: Miguel Cardona Secretary of HHS: Xavier Becerra Secretary of Commerce: Gina Raimondo Secretary of Veterans Affairs: Denis McDonough Secretary of Interior: Deb Haaland Secretary of Agriculture: Tom Vilsack Secretary of Labor: Marty Walsh Secretary of HUD: Marcia Fudge Secretary of Transportation: Pete Buttigieg COVID Czar: Jeff Zients Homeland Security Advisor: ? UN Ambassador: Linda Thomas-Greenfield NATO Ambassador: Nicholas Burns Surgeon General: Vivek Murthy NIAID Director: Anthony Fauci OMB Director: Neera Tanden EPA Adminstrator: Michael Regan Trade Representative: Katherine Tai NEC Chair: Brian Neese Council of Economic Advisors Chair: Cecilia Rouse Small Business Administration Director: Keisha Lance-Bottoms CIA Director: William Burns FBI Director: Chris Wray DNI: Avril Haines Secretary of the Navy: James Stavridis (William McRaven/Ray Mabus) Secretary of the Army: Bob McDonald (Chuck Hagel) Secretary of the Air Force: Deborah Lee James (Michael Donley) SCOTUS Nominee: Ketanji Brown Jackson (to replace Breyer in a couple years) 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 as he was during her campaign but if not, should be Navy Secretary.
  10. Russia Offered Afghan Militants Bounties to Kill U.S. Troops June 26, 2020 “American intelligence officials have concluded that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in Afghanistan — including targeting American troops — amid the peace talks to end the long-running war there,” the New York Times reports. “Islamist militants, or armed criminal elements closely associated with them, are believed to have collected some bounty money… Twenty Americans were killed in combat in Afghanistan in 2019, but it was not clear which killings were under suspicion.” “The intelligence finding was briefed to President Trump… Officials developed a menu of potential options — starting with making a diplomatic complaint to Moscow and a demand that it stop, along with an escalating series of sanctions and other possible responses, but the White House has yet to authorize any step.” https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/26/us/politics/russia-afghanistan-bounties.html

  12. Soleimani is the most powerful military leader in the Middle East as leader of Irans Quds Force.
  13. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-emoluments-exclusive/exclusive-foreign-government-leases-at-trump-world-tower-stir-more-emoluments-concerns-idUSKCN1S80PP WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department allowed at least seven foreign governments to rent luxury condominiums in New York’s Trump World Tower in 2017 without approval from Congress, according to documents and people familiar with the leases, a potential violation of the U.S. Constitution’s emoluments clause. Congressional staffers confirmed to Reuters that the Trump World Tower lease requests were never submitted to Congress. Elijah Cummings, chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, said his committee has been “stonewalled” in its efforts to obtain detailed information about foreign government payments to Trump’s businesses. “This new information raises serious questions about the President and his businesses’ potential receipt of payments from foreign governments,” Cummings said in a statement to Reuters. “The American public deserves full transparency.”
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.

    US Senate Race

    Figured we can use this thread for Senate race news going forward.
  18. We learn nothing by arguing and not listening. I myself am guilty of ignoring some posters, but I am emptying my ignore list. What is you opinion of the president sending in Federal agents to arrest protester against the wishes of the Mayor of Portland(D) and the Governor of Oregon(D). Do you think he should send Federal agents to Chicago.
  19. 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
  20. 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.
