    Casual racism. When Obama had the audacity to make fun of him at the 2011 WH correspondents dinner it was on. Trump played a big role in the birther conspiracy. He's now in a position of power, and Mitch McConnell is telling him what to think. Their ultimate goal is to erase any legacy Obama might have. What I don't understand is how millions of regular people with oftentimes low paying jobs would ever believe that a "billionaire" and his billionaire buddies would ever give a shit about them. This train wreck of a presidency is going to go down in history as the most corrupt and worthless thing to ever be inflicted upon the US. By the next election his cronies, and enablers will turn on him. He demands loyalty, but does not reciprocate. He will throw anyone under the bus if he thinks it will bail him out. His legacy will be courts filled with unqualified judges, and all but giving the next President the Nobel Prize for not being Trump.

    Apparently Trump is throwing Rudy under the bus. https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/national-international/Donald-Trump-Igor-Fruman-Lev-Parnas-I-dont-know-them-562756752.html

    I see that your grasp of nuance fails you. I didn't insult your mother. I insulted you by suggesting that she would have done a service by swallowing instead of bringing your ignorance into the world. I'm sure your mother is a delightful woman., but sometimes tragedy can be averted by an occasional beej. But he is bad, and orange. https://www.fastcompany.com/3063462/what-pantone-color-is-donald-trump I wonder how long it will take for them to cut a deal and roll over on Rudy, and whomever else they can.

    I think your inference says more about you than me. Those darn Kurds had it coming. They didn't help us at Normandy. Trump pulling any and all US presence from the region was something that was planned out with Erdogan. Turkey waited a day at the most before attacking them. That means they were ready and waiting to mobilize, not to fight ISIS, but to attack the Kurds. I guess we'll have to wait for Trump to "obliterate" their economy. I think the House should hold a vote on the impeachment inquiry, they have enough for it to pass, then it will effectively neuter WH attempts to obstruct.

    In a perfect world your mom would have swallowed, yet here we are. I guess it's easier to make your g/f or wife schedule a doctor's appointment, possibly take a day off from work, get a prescription, and then head to the pharmacy and get it filled. You could always avoid looking like a selfish prick and spend 3 bucks to buy a pack of rubbers. You seem like the kind of guy that thinks the easiest way to change a flat tire is to buy a new car. What's really hilarious is people of your ilk are the only ones I see mentioning "safe spaces."

    The US is just too darn prudish about sex. It's fine to show someone blowing their head off on tv, but don't discuss sex openly. The ironic thing is that people who chastise women for not taking responsibility are also the ones that are doing everything in their power to limit the availability of affordable birth control. When I was sowing my wild oats I could walk into a Planned Parenthood and walk out with a garbage bag full of condoms. I don't agree with abortion as birth control. Unfortunately, the extreme sides of the spectrum want all or nothing. As far as I'm concerned, it really isn't any of my business what people choose to do with their bodies. It would be nice if we could agree on a middle ground.

    I remember Reagan got a lot of crap for his age. Reagan was actually younger than Biden and Sanders when he was elected to his second term. There are a few reasons why old people get elected. One reason is that old people do more of the voting. Old people are also viewed as having more wisdom and experience. The Senate is a whole 'nother ball of wax. Politicians are easily bought, and without term limits, it becomes more about being re-elected than helping the country. Unfortunately, we;d have to get those same people to vote for term limits. What you end up with his an entire legislative body comprised of old people who will never change their mind on anything. I think things will start to change as younger generations that are more tolerant and open-minded get to the age of giving a shit about their civic duty, or when the population takes a giant hit when the baby boomers all die.

    Aww what's the matter? Looks like someone's pussy hurts. You're a little bitch. Out of curiosity, when you open your mouth can you hear the air escaping your head? People like you are why I'm pro-choice. The hearsay argument was laughable at best. With a person who actually heard the call coming forward, they can longer use that argument to discredit the whistle-blower.

    Biden was just the spokesperson for efforts to remove a prosecutor that WAS NOT investigating corruption. If Biden did something illegal then he should be punished. However, that doesn't excuse what Trump is doing, or the shit his kids are doing all over the world. I don't understand how people can flat out ignore facts. My biggest issue with the whole "but Biden" defense is that people are using that to justify Trump's actions. If cops show up at my house with a warrant to search for drugs, telling them that my neighbor is also dealing drugs is not going to get me off the hook. Let me be very clear on something. I don't have any blind devotion to a single politician. Anyone doing any illegal shit should be removed from office, regardless of party affiliation.

    Almagnus is lying to you. Biden did not coerce Ukraine to fire a prosecutor that was investigating his son. It's a complete falsehood. I guess it's ok to ignore facts. "B.) Biden coerced Ukraine with foreign aid to fire an investigator looking into how his son got hired for a position in Ukraine while Biden was VP" https://www.factcheck.org/2019/09/trump-twists-facts-on-biden-and-ukraine/

    They want to know who it is in order to mount a specific smear campaign or flat out threaten them. It's hard to come up with a clever nickname you can rage tweet about if you don't know who it is. Of course the whole whistle-blower protection act was created to protect them from retribution. Unfortunately, you can't expect any of those people to appreciate laws and such.

    The reporting says that this second whistle blower actually has first hand knowledge of the call. They can't use the whole hearsay argument to deflect. I honestly believe that Trump is so stupid that he could very well have stated directly that an investigation would help his reelection.

    So nice of you to cherry pick that summary you ignorant asshole. President Zelenskyy: Yes you are absolutely right. Not only 100%, but actually 1000% and I can tell you the following; I did talk to Angela Merkel and I did meet with her I also met and talked with Macron and I told them that they are not doing quite as much as they need to be doing on the issues with the sanctions. They are not enforcing the sanctions. They are not working as much as they should work for Ukraine. It turns out that even though logically, the European Union should be our biggest partner but technically the United States is a much bigger partner than the European Union and I'm very grateful to you for that because the United States is doing quite a lot for Ukraine. Much more than the European Union especially when we are talking about sanctions against the Russian Federation. I would also like to thank you for your great support in the area of defense. We are ready to continue to cooperate for the next steps specifically we are almost. ready to buy more Javelins from the United States for defense purposes. The President: I would like you to do us a favor though because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine, they say Crowdstrike... I guess you have one of your wealthy people... The server, they say Ukraine has it. There are a lot of things that went on, the whole situation. I think you're surrounding yourself with some of the same people. I would like to have the Attorney General call you or your people and I would like you to get to the bottom of it. As you saw yesterday, that whole nonsense ended with a very poor performance by a man named Robert Mueller, an incompetent performance, but they say a lot of it started with Ukraine. Whatever you can do, it's very important that you do it if that's possible. President Zelenskyy: Yes it is very important for me and everything that you just mentioned earlier. For me as a President, it is very important and we are open for any future cooperation. We are ready to open a new page on cooperation in relations between the United States and Ukraine. For that purpose, I just recalled our ambassador from United States and he will be replaced by a very competent and very experienced ambassador who will work hard on making sure that our two nations are getting closer. I would also like and hope to see him having your trust and your confidence and have personal relations with you so we can cooperate even more so. I will personally tell you that one of my assistants spoke with Mr. Giuliani just recently and we are hoping very much that Mr. Giuliani will be able to travel to Ukraine and we will meet once he comes to Ukraine. I just wanted to assure you once again that you have nobody but friends around us. I will make sure that I surround myself with the best and most experienced people. I also wanted to tell you that we are friends. We are great friends and you Mr. President have friends in our country so we can continue our strategic partnership. I also plan to surround myself with great people and in addition to that investigation, I guarantee as the President of Ukraine that all the investigations will be done openly and candidly.. That I can assure you. The President: Good because I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down and that's really unfair. A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and you had some very bad people involved. Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man. He was the mayor of New York City, a great mayor, and I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General. Rudy very much knows what's happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great. The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news and the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine were bad news so I just want to let you know that. The other thing, There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it... It sounds horrible to me.

    It's not a strawman, it was a question. However, if even after all the stuff that Trump has actually done on live tv you respond by posting all of the "Biden = bad" stuff then one would have to draw the conclusion that because Biden did something shady, then Trump is excused. They're not even related. Suggesting Trump is trying to root out corruption, when he had how many years to get his DoJ to start investigations, is questionable. It only became important when the polls started showing Biden was appearing to beat Trump. If Biden has done something illegal, then fuck em'. Mudslinging is one thing, and it happens in all political races. We cannot have a potus leveraging foreign aid to further his/her political aspirations. There are two key statements in this whole thing. 1)The summary of the call transcript(provided by the WH) when Pres. Z mentions the javelin missiles and Trump says "I would like you do us a favor though" 2) In the text message transcript Amb. Taylor says "As I said on the phone, I think it's crazy to withhold aid for political reasons." Then of course there is Trump openly admitting on tv that he wanted Ukraine to open an investigation on the Bidens, and then stating something about getting China in on the mix. At worst Biden is guilty of nepotism. Trump would never resort to nepotism to further his kid's careers. /s However, Biden did not withhold foreign aid in order to get his son a cushy job.

    Here's a novel thought. How about Biden's guilt or innocence does not excuse Trump's bullshit? Isn't that the argument you're making? That because Biden used his political influence to get his son a job then Trump can't possibly be held accountable for his crimes. That is the biggest pile of horseshit. As I said before, I didn't get away with that when I tried to use it against my siblings.

    Stop posting videos by Tim Pool. I don't give a shit that you say he's liberal. His youtube video playlist is hardly objective. Trump is going to hang himself. When you comment section includes things like: bishop takes king4 days ago Thats too slow. I want to see the entire Democratic establishment hauled into the street and shot tomorrow This is the crazy shit the right thinks. It's frightening, and what's even more disturbing is the blind support for a president that is not only a terrible human being, but terrible at his job. Tim Pool's videos are full of misinformation and right wing talking points. If it talks like a duck and walks like a duck. Someone should really delete this dumpster fire of a thread, or better yet, delete my account. I don't even play lotro and some of the fucktards posting in this thread are making me weep for humanity. Almagnus, don't even bother responding to this. i'm never going to read your post. I liked you better when you were just a plain old troll and FFXIV shill.

    Why can't we do both? The all or nothing attitude is a huge problem on both sides. I don't leave a huge bag of heroin near a drug addict while I wait to find out why they're a drug addict.

    There are three Republicans hoping to primary against Trump. Mark Sanford, Joe Walsh(no, not that Joe Walsh), and Bill Weld, I'm not too familiar with their platforms. Although a incumbent facing opposition from their own party has not lost the nomination, none in the last 50 years have won the general election afterwards. The idea is that a incumbent facing a strong primary will divide the voter base. At least two states have refused to even put anyone else on the ballot for the Republican nom. I'm not sure if anymore have followed.

    My take away from that graphic is that you think love and hope are bad things. That's even too cynical for me. I don't think everyone is far right. I have friends and family members who are conservative and/or voted for Trump. I don't think they're far right. They also don't ignore facts and evidence. They also don't refer to liberals and progressives as libtards, cucks, or snowflakes. You seem like the kind of guy who does. We'll see how this whole thing shakes out.
