The Politics Thread


Recommended Posts

Despite being very vocal on social media, the reality is that the Justice Democrats continue to rack up losses. From what I've read, Morgan Harper, the latest JD to fall in her bid, only moved to the district three months prior to primary season, which Rep. Joyce Beatty called her out on during a debate.

Here's a sample of Joyce Beatty taking on her Justice Dem opponent...

 

 

It's obvious that the gloves have come off. We aren't playing nice with the "revolution" anymore.

They got greedy with AOC's election, which had a lot of factors. The one election they could have won if Bernie and friends had actually tried was Henry Cuellar's primary, but they didn't bother. 

 

They think that Twitter activism speaks for the public and that all you have to do is shout about corruption and other glib catchphrases and...the revolution arrives by magic, I guess. 

 

More and more are saying this is why we shouldn't focus on politics, to which I say fine, good, just go back to other attention-seeking venues that have no real affect on anyone, aside from the pockets of the grifters you line. Kystal Ball, Glenn Greenwald, Kyle Kulinski, Chapo and friends will be right behind you.

If only I could have reached through my desktop screen to wipe that smug look off Morgan Harper's face.  In fact, Harper's entire body language said, "OK Boomer!;" which encapsulates why I, as a Gen-X'er, find it much harder to take seriously a Millennial or Gen-Z'er over a Baby Boomer.  Sure, I might disagree with many Boomers' worldviews; however, it's just like what we say in the African-American community: "They marched, so our Black asses could vote."  The LEAST we could give them is our respect.

I expect one member of The Squad to lose their job this year. Pressley's safe but the other three have vulnerabilities. If I had to choose the weakest I'd say it's Tlaib.

So, this whole Tara Reade mess. Let me be honest and say I think this is all crap. But the thing that seals that for me is, I read somewhere yesterday that Ronan Farrow allegedly met with Ms. Reade and he chose not to do an article or whatever.

 

If that is true, that tells me ALL I need to know. Farrow has been a dog with a bone going after predators, so if this had merit, I think he would go full throttle.

IA, @Wendy.

 

Of course, since Republicans are nothing but hypocrites, they're making a big deal about this, even though their own anointed one has been caught on tape talking about grabbing women by their vaginas.

Lord knows they are trying! But most of the mainstream media still seems to be bypassing it, which is probably why Donnie is forever in a rage these days what with Biden crushing him in the polls.

 

Still? If the GOP wants to amp this up, I say, go for it. Then Biden can bring up E. Jean Carroll and the TWENTY-PLUS accusations from different women against Trump, not to mention bringing the Access Hollywood Tape back for an encore.

 

Slippery slopes abound.

Came across this on YT but this was a good summary of the vast differences between a regard for facts and science and a total disregard for facts, science and reality. This country has fallen so far down in such a short amount of time, it's astounding.

Sadly the left is pushing this as much or more as the right. I knew many wanted Trump to win if Bernie lost but I am still disgusted anyway. 

 

I will admit that I think Biden's behavior in those old swearing in videos was inappropriate and offputting, and I do believe the women who said he made them feel uncomfortable. But Reade's story has changed so many times, she's told so many lies about different topics, and her brother admitted to only remembering something after being prompted by a big Bernie supporter (Nathan Robinson). I just don't buy what she's saying. 

 

It doesn't really matter though. Many were always going to support Trump and were looking for reason. Many on the left as well as the usual voices on the right. If Biden wins it's going to be very close.

I don't believe it either. Still, what if it were true? It won't change my vote. I can't think of anything that could at this point.

Sadly, I agree. Just apply Trump's "5th Avenue" comment to Biden. Because 4 more years of Trump is dangerous and unconscionable. I'll gladly and enthusiastically vote for Joe Biden.

Vote for the man with one accuser or the man with twenty six. 

 

I wonder why she waited until he was a presidential nominee rather than when he was a candidate for vice president instead.  Reade did herself a disservice by coming out now since the statue of limitations already past and most dem voters don't want another four years of Trump.

Justin Amash is doing his best to help with that.  He's giving Republicans who don't want to vote for Trump but can't vote for a dem a way out.
