    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.
  2. The GOPs wet dream of perpetual war is only possible because enough of the public is sufficiently dumb to keep entrusting them with power. A war with Iran will end up worse than Iraq, but I’m sure satisfying John Bolton and Mike Pompeo’s war boners will be worth it.
  3. 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.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Tommy Shepherd will be named GM. This is a team with poor cap space and no clear path to success through draft picks. Good enough to finish in the 5-10 lottery space and not bad enough to finish at the absolute bottom. They are more likely to be in the 10-14 range than 1-4. Not a very exciting team to take over.

    Burn this party to the ground if its current establishment leaders cannot find it in themselves to impeach the doofus who invites foreigners to interfere in our elections.
  6. If there is a re-election story for Donald Trump, it will start with the chicken**** spineless politics of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and old establishment democrats. I am really one election away from never voting for this party ever again. Losing one election to Trump is bad. Losing two means they need to be sent to the trashbin of history. And I am almost positive that his path to re-election will start with the people who are supposed to hold him accountable completely failing to do so, in essence normalizing the decay of our democracy and republic.

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

    He has already said that before. Besides the fact that Trump’s own “election fraud commission” was disbanded because it found nothing, the mouth breathers still believe that millions of illegals vote in this country.

    10 each day. The first debate will be a clown show of catchphrases and bad puns. Hopefully at least 75% of them drop out afterwards.

    Starting a pointless war in Iraq wasn’t enough for you dunces. We must now invade Iran and trigger an even bigger crisis in the Middle East. Never fail in doing the bidding for DMV defense contractors who get fat and rich off of your ignorance and thirst for killing people.

    So it’s not just 10 mil a year, but also ownership stake in both the Wizards and Caps. Ted acting real thirsty LOL

    ***2019-2020 NBA Offseason Thread***

    Danny Green went from being memorialized for one of the worst plays ever to no one remembering it.
  12. 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

    Discuss the impending **** storm.
  14. The entire church is full of nutjobs. https://allscripturebaptist.com/preaching/ One sermon starts of arguing for the rights of Palestinians and advocating for their freedom. And then diverges straight into Jewish conspiracy tropes from Neo-Nazi channels. Then there’s another one warning people against vaccines. Makes you wonder how common this type of nonsense is across churches in the South. It certainly reflects in their politics.
  15. Its an overused trope because often it is true. I think homophobia should be studied more, but there is already research that shows a strong link between homophobia and suppression of homosexuality. Self-loathing gay people is enough of a phenomena that it has been picked up in multiple research studies by reputable researchers. It is a very real thing and pointing it out is only demeaning if we think acknowledging a real world issue is of less use than letting people suffer serious identity issues. In the worst case scenario you get people Ike Omar Mateen, and in my opinion, this pastor. https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2016/06/why-orlando-shooter-fired https://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/29/opinion/sunday/homophobic-maybe-youre-gay.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share
  16. This dude is 100% a self-hating gay man. That level of anger only comes from feelings of personal guilt and shame.

    Trickle down theory was never punished by the electorate because the country is sufficiently dumb enough to not even understand what the GOP is doing. Fiscal conservatism is the longest running joke in modern politics. The tea party dip****s never cared about the debt and deficits. The entire animus of the GOP voter base is racial and cultural resentment. There are no core principles at play because none of them will ever hold anyone remotely accountable as long as their thirst for culture wars are satisfied. The GOP can explode deficits, like they always do, by supplying just enough bigotry to keep the masses happy.

    I will vote for a donkey that has been run over by a tank over Trump so Biden will still get my vote if he’s the nominee. I would just have very low expectations about what his admin would actually do to advance the liberal cause. He’s not a thought leader on any key liberal issue.

    Not joking about picking Yang over Biden (I'm not voting for either of them anyways). The reason I would do this is because I don't think a return to normalcy is the only thing necessary after Trump. And I don't know what return to normalcy really even means at this point. Normal before Trump was a Democratic Party getting outmaneuvered by Republicans time and time again, with a severe imbalance between how both parties choose to wield power. It effectively allowed the right to become more and more extreme while still gaining electoral power. Going by Joe Biden's recent statements on "across the aisle cooperation", it seems like he is supremely qualified to lead us into several more years of Democrats normally getting punked by a ruthless GOP.

    The Iran Deal still hanging in there is a global rejection to the GOP foreign policy agenda. There is a worldwide consensus that America is led by a moron and it’s ok to ignore him. Occasionally flatter him with praise and you’ll even get him to bend over.

    Trump has significantly lowered the bar. That’s why everyone and their mother is running. However tbh, it’s not for the worst. “Being ready to be President” is what brings us stale and bad politics, because it typically eliminates younger candidates. Obama routinely defeated “ready to be president” candidates and we were for the better. I have no no issue with unconventional candidates as long as their policies are good and they force people to consider new ideas. I would vote for Andrew Yang over Joe Biden.

    He’s selling a hokey pokey bull**** version of pre-Trump America that most millennials know doesn’t exist. If your best pitch is “Make America America again”, kindly GFY. Half of the clowns in the Presidential race should be running for Senate or other races. Beto, Hickenlooper, Bullock... like what are you people doing.

    I doubt he’s doing it intentionally. Seems like he doesn’t know how to embed tweets. So we get Charlie Kirks dumb opinions, without having to see his face repeatedly. I see that as a positive. Lol

    He brings nothing new or innovative to the table. Same problem as Hillary. Trump clobbered the GOP field in 2016 because he at least went away from the orthodoxy, even if it was a slide towards worse ideas.
