It's not that I think that her chances are that great otherwise, but am I the only one who thinks that openly cozying up to Putin is bad strategy from Le Pen? It only stands to reason that a large part of her appeal has to come from the "muh patriotism" types.

Wikileaks should have quite the interesting dump on Macron tomorrow😒

so Wikileaks is essentially giving up the pretense of being neutral Tongue

They already removed all doubt the moment they went into damage control on Trump's behalf after the Access Hollywood tape.

Theresa May was almost guaranteed to have nearly two terms as PM, so why likely shorten that time by calling an early election? A very plausible explanation, which the markets seem to be rooting for, is that she's (finally?) facing reality on Brexit and wants to go for a soft(ish) Brexit and have a comfortable majority without any troublesome rebel backbenchers.

The very fact that a coalition with the CU is possible weakens GroenLinks's negotiation position and only makes it further likely that the talks will fail. Chances are that this is all still for show and is taking place mostly to mollify D66.

Looks like a scene from a dystopian '80s sci-fi movie.

This will matter if and only if the shooter is Muslim.

Was the timing intended to get this buried by the filibuster nuke?

So what should adding seats to the Supreme Court be called? The "antimatter" option?
9  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Neil Gorsuch Confirmation Hearing *DISCUSSION AND LIVE COMMENTARY* on: March 31, 2017, 07:31:10 pm
Question: If the nuclear option does get enacted over this, will it be restricted to Supreme Court appointments or applied to legislation as well?

It's official:

Hope she threw it in the trash.

It's part of history now, so, for better or worse, it belongs in a museum.

Obamacare surviving isn't a win?

Poor Austria. Everybody is crediting the Dutch as the first to go against the populism that brought your Brexit and Trump.

What was the Pirate Party's best municipality?
15  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Politics and Elections in the Netherlands: GE March 15, 2017 on: March 15, 2017, 03:19:08 pm
So the PvdA lost a humongous three quarters of their seats and the SP still didn't manage to profit from that?? Talk about Epic Fail!

Denk pulling out of the debate is completely incomprehensible. What possible risk could there have been for them participating? Almost any "incident" could only have been to their benefit.
17  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Politics and Elections in the Netherlands: GE March 15, 2017 on: March 14, 2017, 06:07:10 am
The Pirate Party is now getting a seat from another poller.
18  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Politics and Elections in the Netherlands: GE March 15, 2017 on: March 11, 2017, 06:26:38 pm
My gut tells me this will hardly affect the election, given the Dutch are closing ranks on this.

In a twisted sense, this is a stroke of genius by the Erdoğan regime. They knew that the added sensitivity of the imminent Dutch election would help provoke this diplomatic incident, allowing them to incite the nationalistic sentiment that will help them win their referendum. It's Putin-tier in its reckless audacity.

So what happened to the fan-favorite "Moderate Hero" designation? Does one have to pay royalties for use of this term now?

Careless.

The phrase "Kopvodden." on that billboard is not between quotes, meaning that one can no less easily interpret the message as opposition to headscarves rather than the term itself. It seems that, when it comes to the VVD campaign, any supposedly anti-PVV sloganeering always has to be ambiguous.

Donald likes soldiers that aren't killed.

In this time of global populist fervor, the most underplayed story of this election has to be the quite lousy performance of the SP and that, despite the imminent collapse of the PvdA. It's hard to pin this entirely on the seemingly uncharismatic Roemer.

Wait, those weren't opponents of Trump intending to make him look bad?!? Is this real life?
