You mean you haven't heard about the attempted coup that happened while you were gone?

A leftist late night comedy hack is hardly a reliable source for any form of political analysis, comedic or otherwise.

I see a suspicious lack of Trump supporters here... why so silent?

It's impossible to sympathize with a supposed multi billionaire whose party has just recently raised 90 million dollars in one month not paying staffers.

Trump.

The radical Dem Fem Nazis do not believe in protecting unborn babies under any circumstances.

And Trump would, at least he has said he would, appoint Justices who respect the constitution and who respect life.

Clinton would appease the Sanders wing of the party by appointing extremist libs who have no moral bounds whatsoever.

So he treats his policy staffers like he does his contractors.

How would he like it if some of his renters in some of his properties filed for bankruptcy and didn't pay him?

No.

Too old.  Would not challenge Democratic incumbent.

Nixon had the persona of someone who was insecure, vengeful, paranoid, dishonest, manipulative, and was not easy to like among Republicans and conservatives, let alone by Democrats and liberals, but he was a politician extraordinaire.

2016 Continued

Jill Stein MA Green Party candidate for President U.S. See 2012

Ajamu Baraka GA Green Party


Is a longtime human rights activist. He is the founding executive director of the U.S. Human Rights Network and coordinator of the U.S.-based Black Left Unity Network’s Committee on International Affairs. For years, he has led efforts by the U.S. Human Rights Network to challenge police brutality and racism in the United States by bringing these issues to the United Nations.

Served in United States Army during Vietnam War

Attended graduate school at Clark Atlanta University where W.E.B. Dubois had taught

1998 Was one of 300 human rights workers honored by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan

2001 Named "abolitionist of the year" by the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty for his efforts to end the death penalty in the United States

In an interview with Amy Goodman on Democracy Now!, Baraka said that after serving in the U.S. military, he moved to the South where he said he "got involved in a lot of the anti-apartheid work"

Noting the importance of W.E.B. Dubois in the formation of his black internationalist worldview, Baraka said he got "involved in the Central America solidarity movement, organizing delegations to Nicaragua in support of the unfolding revolution in that country," then became an Amnesty International volunteer, eventually moving up to the board of the organization

2004-2011 Served as the founding executive director of the US Human Rights Network, a national network that grew to over 300 U.S. based organizations and 1500 individual members. He is currently an associate fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, D.C.

Has served on the boards of several human rights organizations, including Amnesty International, the Center for Constitutional Rights, and Africa Action

2008 Worked with the US Human Rights Network and over 400 organizations to develop a CERD Shadow Report, which concerned US compliance with the terms of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. They felt the US government's reports did not adequately address racial profiling, displacement from Hurricane Katrina, and land rights for the Western Shoshone, among other issues. A large delegation presented their findings.

Oct 2014 Traveled to the Palestinian territories with the African Heritage delegation. From their experiences there, the 18 delegates drafted six findings and demands and urged the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) "to support moves to hold Israel accountable to international law." These findings / demands included: "settlement expansion amounts to ethnic cleansing and 21st century colonialism", the settlements should not be financed or weaponized by the US, "Israel deports, harasses, detains, poisons, and even sterilizes its African refugees", "The global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement is an essential tool in the struggle for Palestinian liberation."

Sep 2015 Wrote of being a human-rights activist: "If today leftists in the U.S. can find a way to reconcile the suffering of the people of Yemen and Gaza and all of occupied Palestine for the greater good of electing Sanders, tomorrow my life and the movement that I am a part of that is committed to fighting this corrupt, degenerate, white supremacist monstrosity called the United States, can be labeled as enemies of the state and subjected to brutal repression with the same level of silence from these leftists."

Aug 1 2016 Green Party presumptive Presidential nominee Jill Stein announced that Baraka would be her Vice Presidential running mate. Stein and Baraka were formally nominated by delegates at the 2016 Green Party National Convention on Aug 6, 2016. In his acceptance speech, Baraka said that he joined the Green Party effort to "build a multinational movement here in this country based on the needs and the aspirations of working people".

Sep 2016 A Morton County, North Dakota judge issued an arrest warrant against Baraka and Jill Stein, after the two were charged with misdemeanor criminal trespassing and criminal mischief in connection with their protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline



85  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Are you worried about Hillary's health? on: September 06, 2016, 11:07:54 pm
Yes.

Hillary Clinton is clearly not a well woman, and certainly not up to the rigors of carrying out the demanding responsibilities of President.

A lifetime of corruption and deceit has caught up with her, taking not only an emotional toll, but a physical toll as well.   
86  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Colin Powell not taking hillary's statements lightly- ups his attack on: August 22, 2016, 05:58:18 pm
As everyone should know by now, the Clintons will say anything, do anything, no matter who they have to destroy or run over, to get their way.

But they have hit a road block with Powell.

The Clintons are crooked.
87  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will you be glad when this election is over? on: August 22, 2016, 05:55:59 pm
Yes, because we can quit listening to those annoying Trump surrogates who are scared to death to tow anything but the Trump line, no matter how ridiculous or stupid it may be.
88  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will Donald Trump still claim the election was rigged if he wins? on: August 22, 2016, 05:53:38 pm
Of course not.

And his victory speech will be typical Trump.
89  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: 1026 - The Freedom to Drink Act on: August 22, 2016, 04:23:59 pm
Proposed amendment:

Quote
The Freedom to Drink Act
1. The National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984 is hereby repealed.
2. The federal minimum drinking age is now 18.
3. The regions shall each be allowed to each modify the minimum drinking age within the following range:
3a. No region shall be allowed to have a minimum drinking age lower than 16.
3b. No region shall be allowed to have a minimum drinking age higher than 21.
I don't believe section 3 is really necessary. You can't really subtract from federal laws, only add to them. Regions may still have higher minimum drinking ages, but they can't really have anything lower than 18.

I support this amendment.

A legal drinking age of 16 is ridiculous for reasons I have already mentioned.

21 would be a good age, but I do not believe this would gain support in the legislative branches.

Personally, I believe alcohol consumption should be banned completely, but the legislatures would not likely support that either.

The regions should not be permitted to set their own legal drinking ages.  They might do something stupid like setting the age in their region at 16.

 
90  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: 1026 - The Freedom to Drink Act on: August 21, 2016, 10:57:50 pm
Are you insane?

Minimum drinking age of 16?

What have you been drinking?

16 year olds are supposed to be working on finishing high school and graduating, going on to post secondary education, so they can make something useful out of their lives, not sitting in some sleazy dive getting sloshed out of their minds, turning into alcoholics, working at minimum wage jobs for the rest of their lives, falling into a gutter someplace, freezing to death or dying of alcohol poisoning.

What kind of question is this? You can't be serious. All scam adventures are detailed in full in the Update thread.

I'll take that as a no.

Has anyone on this forum ever attended Trump "U"?

If so, what was the result for you?

93  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Hillary loses, will she claim sexism as a reason for it? on: August 20, 2016, 10:34:45 pm
No.

She will be graceful in defeat, I am convinced of it.
94  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should Clinton apologize for her e-mails? on: August 20, 2016, 10:33:19 pm
She should apologize and admit she is a crook.

Trump could read the New York City phone book at his rallies and get uncontrollable applause from his audience.
96  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 20, 2016, 08:35:32 am
Now that Obama has finally accepted my advice to go to Louisiana,  Smiley  this controversial and informative thread will be locked.

Thank you all for your invaluable participation.
97  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 19, 2016, 09:26:48 pm
Winfield, you're not supporting Trump, are you?

Simfan, my friend, check my posting history and you will see some very anti Trump postings that I have been making for months.

I have made some very anti Hillary postings as well.

I just happen to believe, however, that Obama should have gotten off the golf course sooner and gone down to Louisiana.
98  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 19, 2016, 08:01:33 pm
So by your definition, someone who believes the President should show up personally at one of the most devastating disasters in U.S. history, and give comfort, encouragement and assurance to the victims, is playing the political hack card

THEN DEAL      ME      IN!      (to paraphrase Hillary)

(And I began this discussion a full day before the White House announced that Obama would be going to Louisiana)

99  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 19, 2016, 07:06:12 pm
Stop with the wild, ridiculous accusations.

The White House only announced that Obama would be going to Louisiana today, Friday, August 19, 2016, after Trump and Pence led the way. 

About time.

He is only going after Trump and Pence went there, and after much criticism online and in the press, and a full day after I started this topic on this forum.
100  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama golfs while Louisiana sinks.......... on: August 19, 2016, 02:28:28 pm
The visit of the President should be much more than a photo op.

It is to let the people know, on a personal basis, that THEIR President is making sure that everything possible is being done for them.

A personal visit reassures people of that.
