Here's the thing, most conservatives I know are ardent anti-racists and have been their whole life. Judging others as individuals is a core part of their morality since they were young, imparted to th

Finally,  a Trump proposal I can support.

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 Republic

 



The best way to think about the Mueller report is to think about the local police department (detective or DA) doing an investigation on a subject and completing that task.

At the conclusion of the inquiry, if there is no determination of criminal wrongdoing, the investigator does not outline the investigation in a report to the general public.

The basic premise behind this standard process is simple, it’s the same tenet behind the grand jury process: everyone is innocent unless they can be proven to be guilty.

If everyone who was ever investigated had the internal investigative material made public it would be profoundly unfair to the target.  It would be even more unfair if the investigator was allowed to frame a public report, with their own internal biases and innuendo, in lieu of their ability to find criminal wrongdoing.

Now amplify that simple fairness issue x 1,000 and consider how severely political federal investigators might produce such a document against their opposition.  It is easy to see how such a report can be weaponized for political benefit.  The weaponization and benefit is the goal of the current Democrat leadership.

However, specifically to address these issues, and in an attempt to remove the political weaponization possible within the special counsel statute, the DOJ framed the ending of a special counsel investigation such that a summary of investigative finding is delivered to the U.S. Attorney General, who then puts out a public statement (of sorts) describing the conclusion (the finding).

Pelosi, Schumer and the Democrats do not want William Barr to be able to write a summary, a public statement, based on the report delivered to him by Robert Mueller.

Instead, the Democrats want the reportfrom Mueller, including all the investigative trails that were exhausted, so they can exploit aspects of the inquiry that were not able to be proven, and weaponize “innuendo” and “possibility” for political benefit.

There will likely be a massive and coordinated push by the allied elements within media and resistance institutions to demand full access to the Mueller report.  It should be quite a fight…. this is the holy grail for the resistance effort.

If the Mueller report is a nothingburger the media melt-down will be off-the-charts.

Never in a million years did I imagine, when I accepted a job in 2007 to work for Donald Trump, that he would one day run for President, launch a 2 campaign on a platform of hate and intolerance, and actually win. I regret the day I said “yes” to Mr. Trump. I regret all the help and support I gave him along the way.

 

oooookay

Looks like the Cohen think is the first stepping stone for a new investigation on Trump, the first one was a fiasco(what a surprise).

 

Here come's the new blocking mechanism investigation, interesting what theme would they choose next, collusion failed hard.

Here is a pretty good thumbnail sketch about how the 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary could play, especially with the new rules regulating Super Delegates. 

 

https://prospect.org/article/heres-how-democratic-presidential-nomination-will-go

 

So let’s now imagine what happens in our three-way race if Harris, Sanders, and Candidate B emerge as the leaders from the primaries, but none has a majority, which forces the convention to go to a second ballot.

If any one of these candidates is close to a majority, the superdelegates voting on the second ballot may decide the nomination. Indeed, it might be hard for the superdelegates to deny the nomination to a candidate who has won a plurality of the votes and has a significant lead in delegates over the others (this is most likely how Sanders could emerge as the nominee). If, however, the top candidates are bunched closely together and the superdelegates give the nomination to Harris or Candidate B, Sanders and his supporters may claim the party has cheated him a second time and the outcome is illegitimate—a nightmare for Democrats, who want to go into the general election united.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has been leading every Democratic Presidential poll and is likely to make an announcement in April.

He's regarded as a "moderate" Democratic who can bring the Democratic Party back to centrist politics in order to beat President Trump.

 

So OF COURSE the long knives have been coming out for him. CNN has done unprecedented political reporting by actually researching - or looking up on Wikipedia at least - congressional testimony of then Sen. Biden supporting a Democratic President's crime bill.

Shameful. Just shameful.

 

And here's handwringing over Biden opposing busing and reparations for slavery, two positions which are also conventionally popular and - of course - anathema to the Left.

I really have nothing to add, I just have to keep repressing the urge to yell "FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT" or "BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD" or similar with every new piece of news about the Democratic primary.

 

Stop repressing it, that is the correct and noble course of action. Sew discord in the Democrat party, push for left wing radicals, and make sure that Starbucks man will run as a spoiler.

Odd, every time I hear of a new "Democratic Party" candidate, I hear this tune..

 

Needs more clown car.

      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?
