  1. Sanders avoids socially liberal settings because he's one of those people who believes that the "Heartland" is put off by minorities and LGBT people. More than anyone he is trying to get votes from working class white voters who really don't vote based on their wallets, but on social issues over all. He's convinced that an economic message will get them to support him, but that's not at all accurate.

  2. There is an idea among the left that Trump being re-elected and destroying the country would push the country far left enough to elect the type of leaders that they want. The problem with that logic is that Trump being elected in the first place hasn't raised their political fortunes (almost none of the far left's preferred candidate's even made it out of primaries in last year's elections). A damaged economy and democracy being in shambles after two terms of Trump probably would give the Democratic Party an electoral realignment in 2024, but undoing all the harm Trump would have done would take decades.

  3. The only way he resigns is if Trump is voted out, Democrats take the Senate and hold the House, then a thorough investigation takes place. He might be made uncomfortable enough to resign in the instance, but getting a Supreme Court judge to resign is like pulling a steak out of doberman's mouth.

  4. Protester throws red liquid at legislators, shutting down California Senate

    SACRAMENTO — The state Legislature ground to a halt during today's final session when a protester threw red liquid from the upstairs gallery onto the Senate floor while yelling, "That's for the dead babies."

     

    A video of the incident posted by a Twitter user named @connectwithdeb shows a woman telling CHP officers "my menstrual blood is all over the Senate floor" before being detained. The account has videos of anti-vaccine protests that took place Friday at the Capitol.

     

    Even the soaps couldn't come up with this craziness. This is disgusting behavior.

  5. That's an infringement on rights, but it's not an infringement on the 2nd Amendment so it's ok. The fact that this has even been proposed shows how backwards gun nuts are. Reasonable gun control is supposedly unconstitutional, but monitoring people because of a medical condition isn't.

  6. Georgia will have two Senate races next year

    GOP Sen. Johnny Isakson (Ga.) announced Wednesday that he will step down from the Senate at the end of the year, citing health issues.
     
    "After much prayer and consultation with my family and my doctors, I have made the very tough decision to leave the U.S. Senate at the end of this year. I have informed Georgia Governor Brian Kemp today that I will resign my Senate seat effective December 31, 2019," Isakson said in a statement.
     
    There will have to be a special election for the seat in November 2020. This presents a huge opportunity for Democrats to expand the Senate map and increase their chances of gaining control.

  7. *Stephanie Forrester voice*  That man is married, Melania. You are such a slut! You made your filthy bed with that pig, now wallow in it!

     

    Jesting aside if soap operas weren't so looked down upon nowadays someone would have jumped at a Capitol reboot.

  8. Most people who watch news programming are older and older people of course tend to be more conservative. Conservatives also seem to need validation of their opinions from like minded people and that is what Fox News is there for.

  9. The tax cuts were a bust from the start for working people. Some folks got excited about getting bonuses at work but those were more like severance pay because they were let go shortly after. Businesses and the ultra wealthy definitely did put the tax cuts into the economy like Republicans pretend they did.

    The 25th Amendment is not an option because most of the cabinet is there in an "acting" capacity and therefore never went through confirmation. They don't have the power to do anything. 

    That wasn't even something I thought of. It's crazy that most of the cabinet is acting. The state of our government is just terrible.

  11. The 25th Amendment should be invoked, because Trump is clearly slipping further down the drain mentally. Mike Pence really is an idiot in the fact that he hasn't pushed for this yet. If this was a soap opera the Vice President would have had the crazy President in a straight jacket already. Not that Pence would be better policy wise, but he'd basically be a lame duck with little power.

  12. There is a fee that has to be if the celebrity is chosen, but there is a nomination and selection process by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. Anyone nominated has to be in the entertainment field and Trump managed to get one from being on television. Reality stars have been told outright that they do not qualify for the walk, but Trump managed to get one probably because he was a producer for the Apprentice and that could qualify as a form of creativity. He likely knew people on the nominating committee (which is supposed to be kept super secret to prevent lobbying).

  13. Why would Netanyahu be afraid of Trump? Perhaps Trump has some information from Russia that could be damaging to him.

     

    The tariffs have done nothing to stave off a recession and the areas that will be hardest by one are areas that voted for Trump (in part because of tariffs already harming farmers). Trump would make a recession worse.

  14. Right-wingers always portray Hillary Clinton and her husband as these super villains, but if that were really true she'd be in the White House right now because she would have used some unethical means to get there like Trump did.

     

    With that said Epstein was taken off of suicide watch and he was in federal custody which means that Trump's Department of Justice was in charge of that call. Somebody wanted Epstein to off himself and knew that he would do it.

  15. Don't know if anyone else remembers this, but DHS early in the Obama Administration had warned against right-wing extremism, but was criticized by conservatives.

     

    The "Key Findings" section of the report opens with these words: "The DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) has no specific information that domestic rightwing* terrorists are currently planning acts of violence, but rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment."

     

    It's really interesting that some conservatives thought this report was directed at them when it was specifically talking about radicalization and not regular conservatism.
