This?

(For the record, if Jewish people are legitimately upset by Omar’s comments I’m not going to argue they are wrong. If conmen like Ben Shapiro use it as a political football while posing for pictures with Steve fucking King I’m going to call it out).

I had no idea that Tom Steyer had any Jewish ancestry until this stupid thing came out. However, it is common knowledge that he's a billionaire who spends large sums of his money attacking Trump and campaigning for impeachment, which of course, I'm totally on board with. Good for him, I hope he keeps it up. In fact, even as someone far more familiar than most with the financial world, I had never even heard of Tom Steyer until his anti-Trump campaigns.

If the thing that you're principally known for in politics is being fabulously wealthy and throwing a fuckton of cash around, and someone in politics refers to you as "Tom $teyer", that is not anti-semitic, or at the very least, that's a real stretch of an assumption, even if his father was Jewish. Much more likely, it's either over-revving of the hypersensitive left-wing outrage machine, or it's deliberately disingenuous in an attempt to make political hay, or both.

Omar got in trouble for saying AIPAC uses money to influence Israel policy which is just fact, a fact that AIPAC says themselves in media. That is certainly no worse than using a dollar sign for a Jewish person's name.

Sheldon Adelson is another billionaire who is well-known for spending large sums of money on political causes, but if I saw someone refer to him as $heldon Adle$son, I would find that sketch as hell.

Nobody ever said you had a problem with it. NYM was responding to the uproar over Omar's comments and asking why others weren't getting the same attention.

It took three days and a dumb Trump tweet for Dem leadership to realize this isn’t about anti-semitism or bigotry. It’s about false equivalence and political hackery.

Imagine being outpoliticked by the dumbest motherfucker in the country.

Remember when there was a streak of bomb threats being made against synagogues and Jewish community centers and when a Jewish reporter asked Trump what he's doing to stop it the answer was "I had the biggest electoral landslide in history"

Quote :
" Members of Congress could run blue lights on their cars, something prohibited now for everyone but law enforcement, under bipartisan legislation filed this week at the statehouse.

Senate Bill 618 would cover only current members of the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate, only their officially registered vehicles and only "in the performance of the member's official duties."

"There are frequently times when they're trying to meet deadlines," sponsoring Sen. Floyd McKissick
, D-Durham, said Thursday.

McKissick said Democratic 1st District Congressman G.K. Butterfield asked for the bill. McKissick lined up a Republican co-sponsor: Sen. Danny Britt, R-Robeson."

I’m literally stunned that more than 12 hour after absolutely gross right wing attacks on a sitting minority congresswoman “leadership” has yet to utter a word. What the actual fuck?

And fuck any of these idiots who think trying to “work with” a sociopathic madman is worth not sticking up for your own people. Jesus.

As usual AOC is out here making waves just by not being a total rube and coward:
Quote :
"While I understand the political reality of the Senate + election considerations, upon reading this DoJ report, which explicitly names Congress in determining obstruction, I cannot see a reason for us to abdicate from our constitutionally mandated responsibility to investigate."

Quote :
"Many know I take no pleasure in discussions of impeachment. I didn’t campaign on it, & rarely discuss it unprompted.

We all prefer working on our priorities: pushing Medicare for All, tackling student loans, & a Green New Deal.

But the report squarely puts this on our doorstep."


"we should do our jobs" is a radical statement in the 2019 Dem HOR

Pelosi, Schumer, Klobuchar and Feinstein are currently bigger barriers to progress than Trump. At some point, we have to stop critiquing the credibility of these lifetime politicians and call out the people who keep reelecting them. Democrats should focus on taking these dinosaurs out and the Trump situation will take care of themselves.

ATM, we have democrats who were recently calling themselves the #resistance supporting a man who has a history that rivals Trump’s. Biden has several women accusing him of sexual misconduct and has been touching kids on tape for years. He even used his foreign policy influence to help his son’s company get away with a corruption scandal in Ukraine.

Not to mention his record that includes working against integration, against financial reforms, and WRITING the crime bill that plagued Hillary by association with the guy who signed it.

Still, much of the party supports him in the polling. Its time to shift the attention and call out these voters. Shame them instead of wasting energy shaming conservatives for voting Trump.

I can't figure out why progressives are supporting Warren when it will just split the vote with Bernie and hand the nomination to a moderate. I would understand if Bernie was not in the race but he is and is well ahead.

So I can't tell how many levels of troll are happening with this horosho cat. Like, obviously he's not a Russian trip, because those would have more sense than to use a Russian word as a name (or to bother wasting time trolling the Soap Box). But is he a conservative trolling liberals who worry about Russian trolls, or a liberal trolling conservatives for being fooled by Russian trolls, or what?

I’m a leftist trying to show liberals how much of a failure their steadfast determination to appeal to conservatives has become. I generally respect the idealistic goal of the liberals who are honestly naive enough to think extending another olive branch to conservatives can somehow unite the country. Its the moderate/centrist/establishment democrats who I don’t respect and I guess you can say I am trolling them. I want to rub Trump in their faces because his presidency is literally just blowback of their failed, stand-for-nothing mentality.

I want to reiterate that there is a huge difference between the naive liberals who actually believe the US was great before Trump because they are illinformed (thanks MSM) and the “( every republican policy) is bad but we still have to (goal of every republican policy)” crowd. One group just needs more data and one group needs to be trolled/shamed/ridiculed because they lack a moral compass or value for people’s lives.

The problem with labels is that they muddy the waters and Americans hold different definitions of the same words. We end up with a country where no one knows what the words “liberal, progressive, leftist, socialist, capitalist” actually mean so I will give you quotes instead of labels to show you the type of democrats I hate.

‘Climate change is a problem but we have to find a middle ground approach to solving it’
‘Police brutality is a problem but we have to respect our law enforcement because they keep us safe’
‘Separating families is bad but we can’t have open borders and must secure the southern border’
‘We want people to have healthcare but we have to be realistic and can’t just provide it for everyone’
‘Military intervention is not ideal but if we just pull out someone else will gain influence in that region and thats worse’
’41 had some flaws but he was a great man and national hero’
’43 made some mistakes but he was a respectable president overall’
‘We need more leaders like John mccain’
'student debt is a problem but we can't afford to educate all of our bright young minds'

These people are the most dangerous because they are intellectually dishonest and probably just looking out for their own pockets at the end of the day while still appearing as SJWs. You have to remember that these people went to top schools, and came from money (or have been corrupt in DC long enough to become big money) so their social circles are full off Republicans. No one wants to upset their family, best friends, and classmates too much. At least the far right are operating based on a moral system they say they believe in. I’m no CS but centrist code is probably something like this.
Quote :
"
print(virtue signal+ republican position); "

IIRC the print command doesn't "do" anything and just displays stuff so its perfect. They have to go just as much as Trump has to go. You have to understand cause and effect. They created Trump just like they created ISIS.

Kinda disagree. She has more to lose by jumping on the impeachment bandwagon earlier than she 'needs' to. In fact, she can get away with holding out as long as she wants and cave once the tipping point is reached and then just sit back and make some BS claim like "I was waiting for more facts/evidence. Impeachment is horribly divisive for our country, but now that the 'truth' has come out, it's time to do the right thing."

I go back and forth between loving and hating her, because she's a textbook example of a power DC politician that gets what she wants by playing games.

She's a lot of things, but she's not stupid.
