it’s not like the whole govt. isn’t leading the way. senators dial for dollars, while corporations write the laws they pass for those dollars. one big grift. lives lost every day bc of it.

T and R x 5, and thanks, jcb!! ☮️✊🙂 I’ve been over a friend’s house helping her work a Moving Garage Sale. Missed the geriatric joke called a debate. Heard from two very dear people that Byedone was a senile disaster. Hubster says tRump the turd will walk into the WH. Like I’m surprised? However, sounds like the turd was slightly worse (hard to believe). 💩🤮💩🤮

Paul ADK

I guess we get what we ask and work for, sometimes.

I worked recent GOTV tables here in ECFL. I can tell you right now the majority of folks are voting, and they are grimly determined to do it. I’m talking serious, and the turd has now been found guilty. The majority of people hate that down here. Fact.

Paul ADK

This is a bit long, and it’s audio, but I found it soothing. I’m not much of a fan of MSNBC, but I remembered that this guy is better than ambien.

it’s the only network I follow at all. Usually love Lawrence, but not this episode. My view of MSNBC went down a lot when they fired Mehdi, and now I follow Zeteo.

The Pundits/weapons of mass deception are calling for Byedone to step aside ,well its not gonna happen unless he keels over before the actual election. The DNC first shoved the $hill down our throats instead of Bernie and then Byedone over Bernie. The DNC and the PTB know that a Sanders presidency would have benefited the American people and not the quarterly profit sheet. Even now Bernie is more cognizant than cult 45 and Byedone put together.I cant help to think about how different the timeline would be if Bernie won either of the two primaries for president, Cult -45 never happens and he continues his grifting and no one would give a damn. Now we worry about a potential Fascist becoming president in which the extreme religious right has his ear. The GQP is salivating over enacting their project 2025 agenda as much as cult-45 want to do his revenge tour on anyone that is against him and he has a thin skin to boot. Its imperative since the DNC is pushing Byedone down our throats that we plug our collective noses and vote blue no matter what. Odds are the next president will appoint 2 USSC justices so its imperative that Blue holds on to the presidency and the senate or Kiss the rule of law goodbye as far as the USSC goes.

Wi was only won by Byedone by 20,000 votes which is a close election- not a blow-out by any means. So yes, I’ll hold my nose, use the narrative that im voting against the Cult more than i’m voting for Byedone and take a long shower after i mail my vote in. I can only hope then the cult will fade into a bad memory in US history after he loses.

During the last 2 years or so it was Nancy and Reagans’ staff running the country Ronnie didn’t have much of a clue where he was at that point. His handlers would trot him into the public if he was having a good day. At least Reagan had staffers that would adhere to the consitiution and i believe that of Byedone’s staff as well. Under the Cult he’s already shown he could care less about the rule of law and the constitution. He’s in this to grant himself pardons for his crimes and to enrich himself self to the max the the expense of America and what democracy we have left. So ask yourself America? What do you want? Put up with Byedone and preserve what democracy we have left? Or do you want a fascist theocracy style govt which will get the USSC to over rule the constitution and let the Cult run rampant? If Byedone wins maybe the the RNC will get the point that we don’t want the Cult and bury him once and for all?

+270, wi. All I can add is I’m glad my NY born Republican Dad is long dead. He would be absolutely horrified by this POTUS choice.

Paul ADK

Those were the days, huh? The Republicans were the liberals, at least in the Northeast.

I respect your choice. I can’t vote for the man who’s caused so, so many to suffer and die.

wi66

I dont want too but with Wi being so close last time every vote is gonna count in WI, If i lived in a state which wasnt in doubt probably would have written in Bernie agai n. I just feel that were at a turning point in US history i kinda figured i’d be long gone from this earth before Democracy was eliminated in the US. Now i worry i might actually live thru it….

You know what we’re going to live through again, if the party can’t get behind their nominated candidate? 1968. Yikes, they’re even in Chicago. Only this time it would be worse, because by now Johnson had bowed out, and Kennedy was already gone. Now, aside from the fundraising issue, the only candidate the convention could put forward would be someone who was trounced by Biden in 2020. Trump doesn’t have the support he did but he does have enough support for that. Continuing down this road is the fastest way I can think of to get to a second Trump term.

For some reason the human race loves to repeat history instead of learning from it.

Paul ADK

Very, very short memories.

Biden didn’t trounce anyone in 2020. Bernie and Pete were leading Biden until the Clinton/Obama machine got together with Clyburn and did their dirty work.

And Bernie now, like Bernie in 2016 and 2020 would trounce Trump. Bernie is like a bulldog – he doesn’t get distracted, and he just keeps plowing ahead. If anyone could steamroll Trump, it would be Bernie. I know Trump supporters that like Bernie. The problem is that the corporate Dem machine would far rather lose to Trump than win with Bernie – or any progressive. After all, the moneyed interests are just that, and Trump delivers for them.

+270, sadly.

got this from a Brave search engine answer, looking for a news citation.

The ICC’s decision to delay the warrants has been met with mixed reactions. Some have welcomed the move, citing the need for a thorough examination of the jurisdictional issues, while others have criticized the ICC for caving in to political pressure.

Key Points:

The ICC has delayed its decision on issuing arrest warrants for Netanyahu and Gallant due to a challenge by the UK.
The UK’s brief questions the ICC’s jurisdiction over Israel, citing the country’s non-membership in the ICC and the Oslo Accords.
The ICC’s chief prosecutor, Karim Khan, had requested arrest warrants for Netanyahu and Gallant in May, accusing them of war crimes and crimes against humanity in the Gaza Strip.
The delay is expected to prolong the process, and it is unclear when the ICC will make a decision on the arrest warrants.
Netanyahu has expressed concerns that the warrants could be issued as early as July 24, when he is scheduled to address a joint session of the US Congress.

I agree that the warrants for the Russians was connected to this. iirc, it was mostly bc they targeted energy infrastructure, which is, of course, always dual use.

you know the court is twisted when they do these things and leave all the things Ukraine does alone. i.e., shelling an nuclear power plant, and so much more. anyway. typical.

Oh look, there’s Ed again, shilling away for the oligarchy.

Whereas Aaron Blake doesn’t.

Ed O’Keefe… I saw the debate coverage on CBS, and the instant it was over, his first (and last) panel comment was about the anti- Biden texts he was getting from members of congress. He was immediately slapped down by Norah O’Donnell, who said something to the affect of one or two disgruntled congressmen don’t really mean anything. O’Keefe shut up and looked very beaten down, like he wouldn’t be able to further his agenda, now. I’ve made complaints about O’Keefe to CBS before, he’s the most opinionated, agenda driven “journalist” that I see, not that I spend a lot of time with any corporate news. The man is not trustworthy. He reports anything but the facts.

orlbucfan

I’ve been a poll skeptic since like forever.

Benny

If he is just reporting a flash poll, it only gives an public impression of the candidates after the debate.

CBS leans conservative, and always has, except when Dan Rather challenged the Shrub about his military record. Of course, we all know Rather lost his job at CBS over it.

orlbucfan

That number is going to increase cos the turd is a crazy, senile, pathological liar. More and more people are becoming aware of it.

When’s tRump gonna quit the corncomb-up-his-arse and bad makeup look?
