51  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Melania Trump Is Reportedly ‘Miserable’ in Her Role As First Lady on: February 16, 2017, 12:45:59 pm
Yeah I have a feeling a Trump Sex Scandal is coming, and a Melania divorce could well follow.
52  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The odds of a Trump resignation on: February 16, 2017, 12:42:12 pm
My prediction remains that his approval ratings will bottom out at around 25% in early-mid 2018 and he'll resign after the GOP loses the House in the 2018 midterms. Until then, there will be a major scandal every 1-2 months, and at some point McConnell and Ryan will decide it isn't worth carrying water for him.
53  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Report: The Russian Government Is Starting To Worry That Trump Will Be Impeached on: February 14, 2017, 12:48:45 pm
The Russians came to this conclusion NOW? What kind of shoestring operation are they running on over there? If Trump is impeached and the anti-Russian Pence takes over, the Kremlin will explode.

I do enjoy that they've suddenly realized their purchase may not be all that they thought it would be.

They very clearly didn't think this through. I hope they enjoy what's coming and learn not to do it again. What's that saying about chickens coming home to roost?
54  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Breaking News: Michael Flynn resigns on: February 14, 2017, 10:22:57 am
Is Trey Gowdy going to hold hundreds of hearings to investigate this scandal like he did with Benghazi?

Do Trump or Flynn have a (D) after their names?

My point exactly. Republicans like Gowdy have no integrity or principles, just blind partisan/ideological allegiance. Watch them try to sweep this under the rug and will be dodging interviews tomorrow/today.

There is literally nothing the Trump Administration can do to get Gowdy and Chaffetz to investigate it. Trump could read out the name of every CIA Asset in the Russian government while grabbing a woman's p***y against her consent on live TV and they would do nothing.
55  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: If the Trump-wreck continues, how big will the Democratic wave be? on: February 13, 2017, 03:36:10 pm
The party of stupid thinks Astroturfed deadbeat protesters can win elections? Ok?
The Left said that about the Tea Party in 2009-2010, and look how it turned out...
56  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: CIA denies security clearance to allow Mike Flynn to serve on NSC on: February 11, 2017, 12:34:24 pm
Who Flynn wants as his advisors will have no serious impact on the nation. Flynn himself is an advisor (to Trump). An advisor to an advisor has little real power. Grant them the clearance and move on. There are bigger fish to fry.
Yes, because this is exactly how the government should handle security clearances.
No im sorry that's not how the government should work. A security clearance is a privilege, a rare one in fact, not a right. If there are valid reasons for them not to receive clearance they shouldn't receive clearance.
57  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What would an "all liberal, all the time" version of Milo Yiannopoulos be like? on: February 07, 2017, 12:09:29 pm
Probably also gay.
Nah, he'd have to be a straight, married White Southern Christian, preferably with a thick Southern accent, who bragged about how much he liked having sex with women. Unfortunately he would trigger intersectional feminists and some of the more radical BLM types who feel unsafe in teh presence of ANY white person (yes I realize these people are uncommon in real life, but they are disproportionately influential online), so that's probably part of the reason why we don't have one.

Closest thing to this description is Trae Crowder
Trae Crowder isn't abrasive enough.
He's okay though. Can we get him to go on a tour of Baptist Churches, VFW Halls, and Bible Colleges? Once he gets his method perfected, maybe he can debate Milo.

59  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Senators that don't deserve to be in the Senate? on: February 06, 2017, 04:08:13 pm
Bob Menendez, because he's corrupt and refuses to leave.

Mitch McConnell for breaking Congress just so Republicans can win elections.

Ted Cruz because his sole purpose in the Senate seems to be to ladder climbing, and he helped shut down the govt presumably entirely to build up his reputation for his the 2016 election.

This seems like a good list.  Especially Mitch McConnell.  I can't believe the contradictory and hypocritical garbage that spews out of his month.

McConnell is the single worst person in American politics, and is the most responsible for the gridlock and inaction that have characterized the last 10 years and will likely characterize the next 10. I don't even hate Ted Cruz as much as I hate him.
60  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Is this the best case scenario for Senate Democrats in 2018? on: February 06, 2017, 03:56:00 pm
That's a very optimistic scenario for the Democrats, perhaps a little too so. I would say a map like this is more likely:
-map-
It should also be considered that this will be a midterm election (which tends to be better for Republicans), while the last time these senators were up for election was in a presidential election year with a popular Democratic incumbent.

Midterms aren't successful just for Republicans but for the minority party in general. Democrats now have a much better chance of holding down Senate seats like OH, MT, WI, PA or WV than they would have in a Clinton midterm.

Manchin in particular would have gotten Blanched in a Clinton Midterm, but now he has a chance.
61  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) for Senate? on: February 05, 2017, 06:38:39 pm
I love Sinema, but I wonder if Arizona is really ready for a bisexual atheist.

There is no stigma against feminine bisexual women in current year America (Okay fine maybe in a place like Oklahoma or Mississippi there would be, but not in Arizona).
62  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: McInnes assaulted at NYU. Pepperspayed. Professor advocated violence. 11 arrests on: February 03, 2017, 12:21:19 pm
He deserves it much more than Milo does IMO but these sorts of things are counter-productive. The most effective tactic is still to just ignore them.
63  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Official Trump 1.0 Approval Ratings Thread on: February 03, 2017, 12:06:46 pm
So the travel ban isn't this popular EO its been touted as?

No it isn't. People like it in theory but the devil is in the details. The fact that the rollout was so botched likely made it less popular too.
64  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Are you going to buy hillar'ys book on the 2016 election? on: February 03, 2017, 11:54:28 am
No, but I do plan on reading the Game Change/Double Down book on the 2016 election
65  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Gore/Trump voter. Describe. on: February 03, 2017, 11:47:01 am
Rural Democratic voters who never recovered from the recession, and laid-off factory and mine workers. Not all that uncommon, and probably as much as 25% of the vote in places like Trunbull County, OH and McDowell County, WV.
66  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Koch Brothers believe Trump Presidency could lead to Far Left populism on: February 02, 2017, 03:34:27 pm
No Sh*t guys. This is the inevitable consequence of what's been going on on the Right since 2009 or so.
67  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump drafting extreme "religious liberty" executive order on: February 02, 2017, 02:34:46 pm
Please do this.
Please make gay rights a culture war issue again.
Please make sure the country is shut down for days with massive gay protests in every city and town
PLEASE enrage the Left even more.

The center is supportive and apathetic. I'm very excited to be rallying the right too Smiley

Except that this isn't 1993 when literally 90% of the population despised gays. Mike Huckabee milked the Kim Davis thing for all it was worth and didn't get any traction out of it, and Cruz went after Trump hard on the transgender bathroom issue and it didn't work.
68  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Gallup: 55% disapprove of Muslim ban, Plurality says Trump is "moving too fast" on: February 02, 2017, 02:27:01 pm
Ordering temporary ban on entry into U.S. for most people from seven predominantly Muslim countries

Approve 42%
Disapprove 55%

Considering that the Muslim ban had plurality support in theory before it was actually implemented, and seemed to retain most of that support when it was first rolled out, it looks like the cruel and arbitrary nature of the ban is diminishing support, and that protests are having an effect. Let's keep it up!

He'd live in Forsyth County, Georgia

71  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Did Trump lose the Alaska caucuses because he worships Vladimir Putin? on: February 02, 2017, 09:59:17 am
No: Cruz had better organization, so he generally did better in caucuses. Also, Trump's admiration of and subservience to Putin wasn't as apparent at the time and only became so later.
72  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: British PM: Trump Told Her He Supports NATO 100% on: February 01, 2017, 11:13:38 am
He supports it... but if they're doing a "bad job" he will be very "sad!" when he has to withdraw from it.
Pretty sure NATO is an actual treaty, which means the Senate would have to vote on withdrawal, and at the very least McCain, Graham, Flake, Murkowaki, Rubio, and Corker would vote against.
I don't count on Republican Senators for anything anymore, and neither should you. They will always fall in line.
This wouldn't be just confirming a cabinet secretary, this would be radically changing America's place in the World and indeed the entire alignment of world geopolitics. Most likely they just wouldn't let it come up for vote in the Senate in order to avoid voting against the President.
73  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Will Trump go after gays next? on: February 01, 2017, 11:10:36 am
Until I see a better explanation for those odd spellings I'm sticking to it. Someone should analyze those tweets and see if they have any weird omissions of indirect articles (a very common mistake Russian speakers make as the Russian language doesn't use indirect articles, and some Russian socks have been exposed this way.)

I feel like a paid Russian spy would be aware of their own dialect. They aren't cartoon bad guys

I feel like there's at least a small chance it's authentic and that the Rogue Staffer is a Kushner Loyalist who's secretly a Democrat. They were right about Gorsuch among other things. If it were really a Russian Disinfo account, why would they go out of their way to make Bannon look so bad while Preibus and Kushner look relatively good? If it were really Russian Disinformation, they would be trying to make (((Kushner))) look like the manipulative power behind the throne.
74  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Likelyhood of Trump getting impeached? on: January 31, 2017, 10:09:17 am
I voted 51-75 % simply because he may at some point actually realize that he is POTUS and start brushing up on his pretty rusty skills and learning ( a foreign concept to Trump apparently).  But the way he is going it is only a matter of time before he racks up enough reasons for impeachment.

Do you really think Trump and his advisors would have done what they did if they didn't have assurances beforehand from party leadership that they could get away with it?
Yes he's flying by the seat of his pants, and the only advisor who seems to have his ear at the moment is Bannon.
75  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Will Trump go after gays next? on: January 31, 2017, 12:02:11 am
Damn. I may have spoken too fast.

Edit : Oh, COME ON. https://twitter.com/joshrogin/status/826174682915287045

Can this administration give everyone a break ?

RougePOTUS twitter called it way before anyone...now confirms it:

Rogue POTUS Staff
‏@RoguePOTUSStaff

Confirmed, @joshrogin . Nuances are being hammered out. Still small chance it may be abandoned, to avoid more bad press. But unlikely.

https://twitter.com/RoguePOTUSStaff/status/826213023559909377

Oh please do this. I can't wait for the lavenous gay protests. The country will come to a grinding, beautiful halt for days
