It's only a start. America should sever it's one-sided alliance with Israel completely. This also goes for Saudi Arabia.
Vladimir Putin agrees.

I would rather ally with Russia then Saudi Arabia
Pretty sure hes saying Russia would be Israels new best friend, and yes they would pick up the the Saudis aswell
2  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump is back to Birtherism on: September 15, 2016, 11:53:32 pm
So uh did you all read the statement? its something else.
Quote
"Hillary Clinton’s campaign first raised this issue to smear then-candidate Barack Obama in her very nasty, failed 2008 campaign for President. This type of vicious and conniving behavior is straight from the Clinton Playbook. As usual, however, Hillary Clinton was too weak to get an answer. Even the MSNBC show Morning Joe admits that it was Clinton’s henchmen who first raised this issue, not Donald J. Trump.

In 2011, Mr. Trump was finally able to bring this ugly incident to its conclusion by successfully compelling President Obama to release his birth certificate. Mr. Trump did a great service to the President and the country by bringing closure to the issue that Hillary Clinton and her team first raised. Inarguably, Donald J. Trump is a closer. Having successfully obtained President Obama’s birth certificate when others could not, Mr. Trump believes that President Obama was born in the United States.

Mr. Trump is now totally focused on bringing jobs back to America, defeating radical Islamic terrorism, taking care of our veterans, introducing school choice opportunities and rebuilding and making our inner cities safe again." – Jason Miller, Senior Communications Advisor

Pre blaming people for something that is far from over? Seems democrats haven't changed at all from the bush years.
4  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Why is Minnesota so liberal? on: September 14, 2016, 04:17:42 pm
Minneapolis is a huge part of the states population, and it has traditions from the liberal farmers McGovern/Humphrey/McCarthy movement. It's also not super, super white.
Uh not sure what data you have been looking at but MN has been until recently one of the whitest states.
5  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Civil War in Syria on: September 14, 2016, 01:23:47 pm
There has certainly been a rapproachment between Turkey and Russia. Turkish-Western relations on the other hand have become much more complicated. But international diplomacy on the Syrian question is far more complex than two sides or a triangle. Everyone has his own interests and engages in temporary alliances, cooperations or nonaggression pacts.

In other news: Syrian-Israeli escalation.
Jihadist rebels have started a new offensive against regime-held areas in Quneitra province, with Israel bombing some Syrian artillery positions. The Syrian air defense claims to have downed an Israeli fighter jet and an Israeli drone. Israel confirmed the attacks, but said they missed their targets. This might become interesting.
If they had taken down a jet they would have proof and a bigger retaliation from Israel , a drone is possible though.
6  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bill Clinton CIA Director James Woosley endorses Trump and will Advise him on: September 14, 2016, 01:21:03 pm
So, we get the best minds of the last time America was safe, strong, and secure, and the Clinton's get Wolfowitz and Max Boot. All you need to know.

Yes, trump gets the best minds ..... like Sarah Palin.
Sarah Palin wasn't directly responsible for the unnecessary deaths of 3,000 soldiers in a war based on a lie that was crafted by members of the Clinton cult.
James Woosley however is one of those people.
7  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Incomes are Rising and Poverty is Dropping, According to US Census Report on: September 14, 2016, 02:18:44 am
That's quite an impressive leap.  Interestingly, the only area where real income dropped was outside of metropolitan areas.
I would wager that's largely because of commodity price collapse, If you are just talking year on year.

I recall her mentioning something to that effect in 2012, so I am going to say yes.

88 you say was he also endorsed by 14 others?

Another ISIS leader bites the dust

He wasn't just the spokesperson either. He was a early follower of zarqawi and second-in-command of the organization. 
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: WI-Marquette: Clinton +3 on: August 31, 2016, 01:28:04 pm
Well, at least the Iowa numbers make a little more sense now. Demographically, Wisconsin should be a great state for Trump. Lots of working class whites.
No just no. People who voted for Obama twice are not going to vote for trump. not to mention hes stuck at 42% that's just the republican baseline.

16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: Internal poll megathread on: August 19, 2016, 12:43:59 pm
Specifically, the Republican internals have Trump down double digits in the Raleigh and Charlotte suburbs. If the GOP lose that, it'll be like NoVA again.

Similarly, the last Marquette poll had Clinton winning the WOW counties in Wisconsin, which went to Romney by 30. Trump is flat-lining in affluent suburbs.

WAT

LOL. Safe D Wisconsin. That's a landslide here then. Something around the lines of 60-40.

Marquette had Clinton up by 5% (4 way vote) in the Milwaukee media market, outside of the city of Milwaukee. This includes the WOW counties, but also includes the Milwaukee County suburbs, Racine, Kenosha, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, Jefferson, and Walworth counties.

Oh, okay, that's at least within the realm of comprehension. Although even that broader area was won by McCain 53-46 in 2008, so Trump is still badly under-performing there.

What are the WOW counties? Pardon the ignorance.
Waukesha-Ozaukee-Washington.

Getting far too close for comfort. And this is not the only piece of evidence. Efforts to destroy the fiend should be redoubled.
I think a large part of it is that she needs to raise her own favorable ratings, trump is still at the same level of support he is in pretty much all polls at about 39%.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: MO- PPP: Trump +3 on: August 17, 2016, 10:58:20 am
Shes only winning women by 2 in this and there are more undecided women. But that probably still leaves it at about trump 2.

20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: WI-Marquette: Clinton +10/+9 among RV, +15/+13 among LV on: August 11, 2016, 01:45:35 pm
Clinton favorables: 43/53
Trump favorables: 27/65!!!

This was all very predictable...From before the WI primary...



And right there you can see the HUGE educational divide. Farming/blue collar/poor outstate is for Trump but has a lot less population.
Well that was Last month from R primary voters. The crosstabs from this poll for the whole electorate has him with his best favorable ratings in the green bay region.

Also don't know if this is worth knowing about but Democratic votes in WI-07 slightly exceeded Republican votes.
Probably In part because of my county, we had a competitive DA race that Republicans crossed over for.

Former school trustee Mary Hoeft is well ahead of Marathon County Supervisor Joel Lewis in Wisconsin 7th.  Is that an upset?
No, she was endorsed by former Congressman Dave Obey as well as pretty much all the other Dem elected officials and party officials in the district http://www.maryhoeftforcongress.com/endorsements/ Interestingly enough a former coworker of mine is on this list.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: VA Mayor Accused of Distributing Meth on: August 05, 2016, 06:25:05 pm
NoVA isn't really where I would expect meth dealing mayors.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump tells @PhilipRucker he won't support Paul Ryan, John McCain in primaries on: August 02, 2016, 05:21:19 pm
So when do we think elected Republicans will start abandoning Trump in mass?

Probably not until October.
Once congressional primary season is over so mid September probably.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Republican National Convention **live commentary thread** on: July 20, 2016, 07:50:22 pm
Wow, that speech could have been given at any convention.

PBS pointed out that she didn't say the last line of her speech: "That leader is Donald Trump."
I think people criticizing her don't realize she was just there to try and sell NASA to republicans.
