    The Impeachment Thread

    There was a suggestion in the Russia investigation thread to start a new one for impeachment. With the investigation now over and the SCO dissolved, the next phase begins. There is growing support among House Democrats and one lone Republican (Justin Amash) on starting impeachment hearings over the 11 counts of obstruction highlighted in the special counsel report.

  3. https://thinkprogress.org/trump-ichan-steel-imports-cf7deb8beaf0/ Insider trading 101. If the SEC still does what it's supposed to do, this should be a major scandal that demands an investigation. This is the kind of corruption that is a hallmark of oligarchies. Also might as well make this the trade war thread. It seems like the tariffs won't just be for steel and aluminum.
  4. Seems like he’s punishing people for voting him out of office at this point.

    The Impeachment Thread

    Social and economic sorting will take its natural course. If you are well adapted to a socially modern and globalized world, you likely have nothing to worry about. The GOP would be far more destructive if they had cultural support in major metro areas. You see this with right wing nationalism in countries like India, where the urban And cultural centers are the breeding grounds of bigotry. But here, the GOP derives it’s power from a decentralized network of disconnected rural regions, which means they get to do all of their bad economic policies but can’t really dictate and control the social norms and trends of the population.

    The Random Politics Thread

    You have liberal governments recently elected in most Western European countries. Right wing nationalism is unfortunately a failed ideology that keeps coming back from the dustbin of history, and it typically ends with the same disastrous results. Any time there is major disruption, some people adapt and the others latch on to tribal instincts of self-preservation. Typically doesn’t end well for them.

    The absolute funniest thing about “Trump and Giuliani the corruption fighters” skit is that one of the guys they were getting bogus conspiracies from is a Ukranian oligarch hiding in Austria to prevent US extradition for charges of corruption. We are truly living in the dumbest era in American history.

    Election 2020 The Non Presidential Edition

    Bernie endorses a raging misogynist for Katie Hill’s former seat, which she lost after being on receiving end of misogyny and revenge porn. All because Cenk uses his media platform to endorse Bernie and his ideas. Guy doesn’t even live in CA-25.

    The Brexit Thread

    Just an amazing display of political and economic suicide over a three year period by both conservatives and Labour. No one wins in this. This is only the beginning of what will be a very bad decade, in which Scotland and Northern Ireland will undergo massive internal conflict, and will almost certainly vote for secession.
  10. To The GOP is making up claims of electoral fraud to undermine the trust of the public in our electoral process. Happening in FL and AZ for the past few days, and now it seems Nevada GOP is denying results that pretty much swept them out of power at every level of government in the state. As the GOP reaps the electoral results of their bargain with Trump, expect this to worsen.

    UK election taking place today. Still probably headed for a conservative majority.
  12. A pedophile ran for Senate in Alabama and received the full backing of the GOP. The President is on record saying that he enjoyed visiting the dressing room of teenage beauty contests to see underage girls naked. Pedophiles have a very special place in the new GOP, along with other types of bottom feeding scum.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    Don’t think anyone actually cares about “God” or the worlds most popular fairy tale book. It has been abundantly clear for several years that there’s a group of people unable to cope with a rapidly modernizing world and their chosen fairy tales are more of a coping mechanism, rather than steadfast beliefs. It’s the only social construct that allows you to absolve yourself of your own stupidity and bigotry.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    Garbage people are garbage but in a way, there is a really great form of social self-sorting taking place. No decent person can look at this and continue supporting it. Yet those who continue to support this mountain of human trash are there for everyone to recognize as just failed people.

    The worst people in the country.
  16. I was holding off on posting this because I wasn't sure where this dumb conspiracy was headed. But this has now reached enough of a mass popularity in right wing circles so here you go. Tl;dr: people are convinced that a Trump admin official who they have dubbed "QAnon", is posting subtle hints of a massive conspiracy on the 4chan board /pol. http://nymag.com/selectall/2017/12/qanon-4chan-the-storm-conspiracy-explained.html

    The Impeachment Thread

    Impeachment hurts Dems is a bogus argument when ruby red states just elected Democratic governors. Part of Trump’s mystique is that he’s a monumentally stupid person but he somehow has wealth and power, so people assume that he’s some kind of hard to figure out genius. When in reality, he’s a reflection of decades of intellectual decline in the US.
  18. Hopefully the child leaves for college one day and never looks back.
  19. A lot of economically anxious right wing folks have descended upon UVA this weekend. Of course, there are heroes in this story. Who were sadly failed by their local police departments.
