Just when you thought the Democrat party could get no worse. 

 

 

 

 

When good, normal, non-criminals won't vote for you garbage candidates, cheat, lie, and have criminals vote. 

 

 

 

Cruz is eligable to vote because he has not been convicted yet.  Are we going to start taking away voting rights to people not convicted?  That makes no sense.

In his specific case, doesn't seem like the hill anyone should want to die on.

As shitty as it looks having him vote, I agree with Walt on principle on this. Also, I'm not sure what the legal method would be to deny somebody a constitutional right without being convicted of anything.

 

Not that that's stopped people like DHS before, of course.

Hillary Will Run Again

Reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand, Mrs. Clinton will easily capture the 2020 nomination.

 

https://www.wsj.com/articles/hillary-will-run-again-1541963599

 

Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994. True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.

 

...

 

But Mrs. Clinton’s transformation during the primaries, especially on social and cultural issues, cost her an easy win against Donald Trump. As Hillary 3.0 catered to the coastal elites who had eluded her in 2008, Mr. Trump stole many of the white working-class voters who might have been amenable to the previous version. Finally she had the full support of the New York Times and the other groups that had shunned her for Mr. Obama—but only at the cost of an unforeseen collapse in support in the Midwest.

 

...

 

The generation of Democrats who have been waiting to take over the party from the Clintons will be fuming that she is back and stealing their show. But they revealed themselves to be bungling amateurs in the Brett Kavanaugh nomination fight, with their laughable Spartacus moments. She will trounce them. Just as Mr. Trump cleared the field, Mrs. Clinton will take down rising Democratic stars like bowling pins. Mike Bloomberg will support her rather than run, and Joe Biden will never be able to take her on.

 

...

The Democrats should consider purging all party members over the age of 65.

 

I'm not saying that all problems in US politics can be solved by throwing the unworthy into gulags... oh wait, yes I am.

I'd go along with that If you said both parties should do that

I am saying that.  If the Democrats want to remain competitive, they need to dig out decades worth of Chicago machine apparatchiks and Clinton lackeys and send them to the salt mines.  If the Republicans wish to continue riding this populist high, they need to give in to their bases' desire for blood, and drag out hundreds of Bush-era neocons and give them life sentences for being counterrevolutionaries.  That would be a good start.

 

One thing that Shattered makes very clear is that, while Hillary Clinton was an absolute dud on the campaign trail, she was extremely methodical about building up her support in order to cinch the nomination.  The lesson she learned from the 2008 primary rodeo was that the only real threat to her inevitable ascendancy were other Democrats.  Therefore, she worked hard on developing a network of operators within the party who could guarantee her nomination.  By all indications, her team put way more thought into how to win the primary than how to win the actual election.

 

So, in a very real sense, if Hillary decides to run again in 2020 (which would obviously be disastrous), job number one for any enterprising, up-and-coming Democrats will absolutely be to purge the party of her malign influence.  The party is filled with Clinton agents programmed to steal votes and money, and the party will not function correctly until they are all rounded up, given show trials, and shipped off to somewhere cold and miserable.  As soon as the rest of the Democrats realize that these people are parasites, and not comrades, their days are numbered.  Right now they're too spooked to clean their own house.  But perhaps, after a few more painful humiliations, some of the young, bright ones will come to see what must be done.

 

The Republicans have a similar problem, but the solution is somewhat different.  Simply put, Republican voters have despised Republican politicians for years.  They (barely) tolerated them because they saw them as the lesser of two evils (but only very slightly).  But now that they have the new Trump movement, what need do they have for the old, legacy Republicans?  The answer is that they have no need for them whatsoever.  But that salt ain't gonna mine itself!

 

Summary:  Gulags.  Gulags for all.

I can guarantee that if HIllary were to be the 2020 nominee for president, the Democratic base would revolt.  One thing this midterm showed is that the Democratic base wants fresh faces.  As a liberal, I do not think I could vote for Hillary in 2020 if she were the nominee.  She had her chance, time for someone new.

I occasionally hear rumors of Cuomo running in 2020, which would be just about as bad as Clinton imo.

 

"So, last time the voters rejected our establishment New York liberal candidate. Who should we nominate this time?"

 

"Another establishment New York liberal, but a dude!"

Yeah there's no way I'll vote for Hillary, I'd rather we run a toaster for President than give her another shot. Every Democratic acquaintance I have under the age of 50 is pretty much the same way. I didn't even vote for her last time, wrote in Bernie instead, though I probably would have if I were in a swing state. Then gone home and taken a hot shower until I felt clean again.

Funny, I haven't heard much about the big scary migrant caravan ever since the election ended.  It almost makes me think the President used the US Military as an election prop.  

 

Yeah, using a group of people as an election prop to counter another group of people being used as an election prop, how terrible. The difference is that the military was being deployed to do their job, at the request of CBP. I love how a bunch of media people flipped out about the military being deployed to secure a national border.

      After seeing the rampant crack down on speech in the UK, I decided that more should be done than just Thoughts and Prayers. 
       
      I know that it's a scary time for our UK members. Knowing that what you say on the internet can put you on the wrong side of a Bobby's nightstick, well, I find that despicable. 
       
      So I've created this place for all your impure or degenerate thoughts. Here's how it works. 
       
      Perhaps you want to say something "offensive". Instead of saying it yourself, you can message any US member of this forum and have them act as your avatar of avarice. 
       
      For example, say you had a particularly heinous fish and chips at the local pub. You may want to say, "Oi, that cheeky fucker Barnaby William can't do a proper chip if he had a fryer for hands!"
       
      This on it's own could send you straight to jail for defamation. Moreso, if instead of chips that sent you reeling it happened to be a kebab from Omar down the street. 
       
      Now your crime has gone from offensive to racially insensitive!
       
      Anytime such an urge comes along, call on your ex colonial friends. We will translate and post your complaint for all the world to revel in, free of charge!
       
      I personally think Omar should learn to pull the fucking kebab off heat before it's crisper than his wife's crotch and blacker than his beard. That tosser!
       
      See? Don't you feel better? And now, no one will be knocking on your door, serving you with a summons for being a racist git.

      i personally support it, by finding the KGB Felix Dzerzhinsky greatly improved state scurrility both inside the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and abroad (their jurisdiction was only domestic, but they kept the internationally influential people safe at night)   a dedicated defender of both the Revolution and all the Soviet peoples     what do you think of this news?
