    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.

    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.
  5. 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.
  7. 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.

    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.

  11. 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.

    Amazing this person is somehow tasked with oversight of our intelligence community,
  20. This is just a general rant. Over the past few months I have been traveling quite frequently for work. Flying is just an absolutely horrendous experience at this point. It is remarkable that in a country where a substantial chunk of the population is obese or overweight, seats on aircrafts have gotten exponentially smaller to squeeze more and more people into a single flight. The end result is a miserable experience for everyone involved. Yesterday on a three hour flight, I was squeezed into my already tiny seat because the passenger adjacent to me couldn't fit into her seating space. I had to give up about a quarter of my seating space to her. Most airlines have instituted policies for larger passengers of size, and countries like Canada mandate that such passengers be given a 2nd seat at no additional charge. I know most US airlines have policies in place to accommodate passenger comfort but I don't think this ever gets enforced. Something needs to change.
  21. Deserves its own thread at this point, since approving of convicted war criminals is apparently now a thing. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/23/us/politics/navy-discipline-edward-gallagher.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share

    The airline experience has become miserable

    Airline crews discriminating against someone and your takeaway is that persons identity bothers you? Telling.
  23. All of you science believing nerds better hide, illiterate Chad’s with Bibles are about to give you wedgies.
  24. Mexico doesn’t give billions to our defense industry which seems to be the only reason we really tolerate them. But also Mexico didn’t fund the only nuclear weapons program belonging To a radical Islamist country. Mexico also doesn’t have decades of support to an extremist ideology that has led to terrorism across multiple continents. Cowgirl doing her usual act of drawing false equivalencies is nothing surprising.
