If you have to explain a past of homophobia as part of your campaign ... I just don't see how you survive the Dem primary these days. People like to point to Trump, but are we really shocked that a rich white dude spouting racist shit appealed to the GOP base?

I dunno, maybe I'm wrong but I don't see the american political system actually putting the entire complicit body of republicanism complicit. it would require a purge that would have a hard time appearing legitimate.


A few of things.

Ford was an establishment GOPer pardoning a long time GOP politician. Nixon had a lot of social connection currency working in his favor. And we shouldn't over look that it was and remains a somewhat controversial decision. A similar situation would require Trump resigning and Pence pardoning him (a not impossible scenario).

If a Dem takes the WH, I suspect they will come into office with immense pressure not to pardon Trump. Particularly if the evidence points to collusion with foreign adversaries. Moreover, if this is the end game, Trump will almost certainly have taken steps to further alienate folks (e.g., pardoning Don Jr). You can argue that Nixon was punished, but that wouldn't be the case for Trump.

And, not for nothing, there's a decent chance under this scenario that Trump faces criminal liability in NY and I'm not sure he can bank on Cuomo to intervene.



what happens if whatever punishment happens doesn't appear legitimate to 40% of the country? It's all damaging, but what's the least damaging outcome.. you might be right that partisanship pushes it in a certain direction though.

while Trump isn't an establishment GOPer, the entire GOP establishment have remora'd themselves to trump's anal cavity.... there's a lot of people to burn down there. Not saying it wouldn't be fun to see of course.

Much like Game of Thrones ... if you think any of this ends well, you haven't been paying attention. Trump's presidency represents a substantive threat to democratic norms and culture in myriad ways, and there will be fallout for quite some time both domestically and internationally. At the end of the day, however, rule of law has to mean something, or it doesn't mean anything at all ... and some future Dem president is going to be a lot less invested in Trump going unpunished after what is almost certainly going to be a campaign that gets rhetorically gross.

Lets be real. The GOP establishment's embrace of Trump is pretty damn thin. The strength of it is entirely derived from electoral success ... and they just got smashed in 2018 ... and, under this scenario, 2020 will not go well for them. He will have few allies left in the GOP establishment. The cult of personality membership ... different story.

If this goes down, it's going to be an utter circus. The best case scenario if he's guilty of actual crimes, is impeachment and removal from office as that will be the traumatic release valve ... as opposed to an ex-POTUS standing trial.

Local commanders told CNN during its investigation that the Saudis and the United Arab Emirates are using U.S. weapons as currency to buy off different factions and militias in the Yemeni conflict - including Iranian-backed fighters.

CNN concluded that the transactions are “exposing some of America's sensitive military technology to Tehran and potentially endangering the lives of U.S. troops in other conflict zones.”

Bezos says Enquirer threatened to publish revealing pics

https://apnews.com/3ce2ad9926d84688bcc7 ... _medium=AP

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said Thursday he was the target of “extortion and blackmail” by the publisher of the National Enquirer, which he said threatened to publish revealing personal photos of him unless he stopped investigating how other private photos and messages were obtained by the tabloid.










No thank you, Mr. Pecker
Something unusual happened to me yesterday. Actually, for me it wasn’t just unusual — it was a first. I was made an offer I couldn’t refuse. Or at least that’s what the top people at the National Enquirer thought. I’m glad they thought that, because it emboldened them to put it all in writing. Rather than capitulate to extortion and blackmail, I’ve decided to publish exactly what they sent me, despite the personal cost and embarrassment they threaten

U.S. steel tariff 'boondoggle' offers more exclusions to China than Canada

40 per cent of Chinese steel imports - and just 2 per cent of Canadian imports - excluded from U.S. tariff

If the Trump administration's tariff policy is meant to target unfair Chinese trade, it sure has a funny way of going about it.

So far, the U.S. Department of Commerce has excluded about 40 per cent of imports of Chinese steel from facing its 25 per cent tariff. But to date, only two per cent of the total volume of Canadian steel imports to the U.S. has been cleared to dodge the tariff.

The head-scratching discrepancy gets even stranger with the United States' 10 per cent tariff on aluminum imports.

About 86 per cent of Chinese aluminum imports now enter the U.S. tariff-free, while less than one per cent of Canadian aluminum shipments do.

"If the whole point was to do this for China in the first place, then why are the approval rates for China so much higher than other countries?" said Christine McDaniel, a former White House economic adviser, now a senior research fellow with the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.

"It just doesn't make sense."

We used to spend about $200,000 a year on steel tubing from the US but after the tariffs we now buy from a Chinese company and all of the companies in our industry who were buying American are now doing the same thing.

The substance was shallow though. This was a play on form, pretending to ask questions in a hearing she knew the answers to, but it came off a little halting and superficial.

I mean it's better than the fake moral outrage and partisan bullshit that it's replacing. Faint praise.

Formally she was trying to make the discussion accessible to the average listener with simple and direct language. I think it worked and attracted many thousands of views.

As I said, I only heard the first minute before growing weary. But in that minute, her second charge - against an article in the WP on the legality of paying off Trump's pornlets - was inaccurate at best. Her accusation essentially came down to, "Did you write this article?" while glossing over what the article actually said. The super cut made the author look guilty as well. Very hack.

I read that article a while back - and I could be wrong - but I don't believe it advocated paying off porn stars for their silence, which is how AOC presented it. It merely said that technically, doing so was not illegal, which is AOC's point. Strange and annoying way of going about it. Maybe not her fault. Maybe the editor's??

Anyway, I still support her idea in spirit. I just don't like amateur hour.

Okay so AOC said something inaccurate about pornstars and her style is too freshmany. I thinks demps was right to leave this place.

I don't think it's too much of me to ask that people be articulate and fair.

You are right on this one. I am wrong. These are desperate times enveloping us in evil. I will take inarticulate and morally superior over pure evil.
