As a candidate, as a Senator, as one of the highest ranked black women politicians, she'll still be relevant regardless. 

 

That's true. I wasn't sure how much they delve into politics. I've mostly watched through Youtube clips.

Trump will want to paint this as a "win" but in reality, China (which has other pressing battles to face) is facing pressure on their imports from India, a country with a population comparable to China and larger than the U.S.  Both countries are desperate for a truce as both have a sh*tload of domestic and diplomatic problems in which to contend.

Looks like Trump is going to take us deep into the hole with the EU too.

The E.U. already has Boris Johnson over a barrel, as he has been discovered to be going to the E.U. with his tail between his legs in secret (or what was supposed to be a secret) application for extension, which he vehemently claimed he'd never do in public.  No doubt, the E.U. is invigorated and girding for a fight with Trump. They seemingly have plenty of energy to spar with Trump, who has been provoking Germany, France and other E.U. countries.

I'm hearing that Trey Gowdy is already off Trump's legal team.  Is that true?

Sounds like it was the usual brain dead Trump rollout, rather than any actual morality. As if any Republican knows what that word even means.

Well, I am DELIGHTED by the news.  Just yesterday, Mama Khan was singing Trey Gowdy's praises.  She even compared yours truly TO him, which made me leave the room for the rest of the night, lol.

Yeah, I read that original article (at another platform other than the NYT) and it was basically that infighting between two of Trump's staff members (Mulvaney and Cippollone) ended up botching the rollout. 

The other aspect is that because Gowdy is still under lobbying restrictions until January (which, shocker, nobody checked), by the time he could be added to the legal team, the impeachment inquiry may very well have been decided.

Brilliant guys, huh?

It should be clear to all but the dumbest Trump supporter why Putin chose to help rig the election in favor of Trump.

I have a feeling that if we don't remove Trump from office (either through impeachment, or the 2020 election), the rest of the world is gonna stand up and DEMAND we do it.

THIS.

For the umpteenth time, Bloomberg is thinking of running for President.

I finally get a chance to use this out of date meme:

Many people said that Harris was getting too far ahead of herself on impeachment, but she turned out to be right (funny how quickly people are willing to dismiss the words of a former prosecutor regarding matters on the law).  Harris made some salient remarks with passion, which sad but unsurprisingly were overlooked.  This thread is worth a watch.  I don't know whether the rest of America will catch up with Harris in time, perhaps she truly is too far ahead for this country.
