    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.
  2. 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 Seni
  3. 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 wer
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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 who

    US Senate Race

    Figured we can use this thread for Senate race news going forward.
  8. 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.
  9. 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-endorseme
  10. 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.
  11. Trump Considers Panel to Review Online Bias May 23, 2020 “President Trump is considering establishing a panel to review complaints of anticonservative bias on social media, in a move that would likely draw pushback from technology companies and others,” the Wall Street Journal reports. “The plans are still under discussion but could include the establishment of a White House-created commission that would examine allegations of online bias and censorship… The administration could also encourage similar reviews by federal regulatory agencies, such as the Feder

  13. 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
  14. 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:
  15. 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.
  16. @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
  17. 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 ho
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  21. Another outstanding idea brought to you by the brain dead idiots on the left.
  22. 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
