  1. Previously in the clusterfuck that has become national politics, the Orange Menace continued his single-minded attempts to destroy our reputation with the world, and now he thinks he can take on Google. Sigh. Continued from here:
  2. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/hillary-clinton-tim-kaine-vice-president_us_577ec219e4b0c590f7e8a3e9 I wasn't terrible familiar with Kaine before, but I'm liking most of what I'm reading about him so far.
  3. We have a Spicer thread, but as we're seeing more and more of his replacement, SHS, I've started a separate thread for her. Although, with this latest tweet of hers I'm not sure this thread is going to be a long one, as none of us will know what she's saying if this is a prediction of future communications. covfefe, anyone?

    The Midterm Elections

    Although the 2018 elections are still a little over 6 months away, I thought a separate thread would be helpful to post all things related to them. There is still much to be done about Election Security in all 50 states. The article in this tweet is quite long, but very informative. I really don't understand why there isn't a sense of urgency about electoral security in every single state. The above results are simply unacceptable for a country that calls itself a democracy.
  5. I just wanted to have a thread for this classy lady. Tonight we learned about the Bowling Green Massacre. I just want to leave my condolences to everyone affected by this tragedy. I'm really hoping to hear from Fredrick Douglass regarding this event.
  6. Congressional Candidate In Virginia Admits He’s A Pedophile https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/nathan-larson-congressional-candidate-pedophile_us_5b10916de4b0d5e89e1e4824 He would fit right in Gilead. YUCK!
  7. Anthony Scaramucci has been appointed the new WH Communications Director, so I thought a new thread would be appropriate. Trump picks financier Scaramucci to head White House communications: official Scaramucci is quite the controversial character. He's been rejected for a WH office before because of ethical conflicts, but these don't seem to be a problem for this position. Sean Spicer has resigned over his appointment, which apparently wasn't run by Bannon (who reportedly is fuming) and Rancid Penis hates his guts. So, just another day in the office of the WH, as usual.
  8. Yes, I do think I’m hilarious. Onward from here:
  9. Since Mike Pence has his own controversies swirling around him, I thought I would start a thread for the slimy, hypocritical weasel: Pence insists that his email scandal is totally different from Hillary's: http://www.rawstory.com/2017/03/pence-says-his-private-email-use-was-not-the-same-as-clintons/ I hate that man so much. What a sleazebag.
  10. I have to do this, so here it is. Let's talk about our most confusing First Lady. Last night as I was going to bed, I was very depressed about the Republicans' latest attempt to kill Americans and wondered if I would have trouble sleeping. But then appeared on my TV the Flotus making a speech while wearing a hot pink pool float! I laughed myself to sleep. There's so much to ponder about her. The marital handshake. What she does all day. Why she's even here. But the thing that really confounds me is how a woman of her means can continually miss the mark fashion-wise. She either looks like she's auditioning for the Top Gun remake or heading out for a formal soirée with some Manhattan high society muckety-mucks. She likes to hide her hands and only has flats or stilettos, there's no in between. She also seems to have some weird fetish about changing clothes on airplanes. Someone help her!

    Obama & Biden memes

    I feel like we need this thread. These memes have been giving me life! I'll start with some:

    State Houses Thread

    Since we have a dedicated thread for news about the various State Senates, I thought I'd get one going about the various State Houses of Representatives I'll start with someone from Iowa who's gone to the Steve King school of political discourse; kcrg.com/content/news/Iowa-GOP-legislator-taking-heat-for-comments-about-gay-men-417135443.html Rep Watts, Fornicate you.
  13. Continued from here: https://www.freejinger.org/topic/31239-trump-33-making-norman-bates-look-like-a-choir-boy/?page=22 Today in news of the obvious: The Orange Menace knew all about the collusion with Russia. Any other president this would sink for ever, but I'm starting to think NOTHING will mitigate the Orange Menace's menace. Anyway, onward, and remember: THIS IS NOT NORMAL OR OKAY!

    Branch Trumpvidians

    We call them the Branch Trumpvidians. Our posts about them are mostly scathing, scorching and sarcastic. We tend to look down upon them as ignorant fools and backwards idiots, who are crybabies when they find out that the presidunce isn't giving them what he promised. I am interested in these people mostly because the anthropological side of this all fascinates me. In essence the sociological and psychological influences surrounding their decisions. Why did they vote for the Tangerine Toddler? Who are these people, why do they back him? Are they really all idiots and fools? Today, I found an article about this very subject, that I found quite enlightening. Maybe it will soften your views on them, maybe not. You're human after all... “I just choose to not listen”: why Trump supporters are tuning out the scandals I believe @GreyhoundFan posted that very article by AP (although I'm not sure, it could have been someone else). There are some illuminating test results illustrating this in the article itself. Are there idiots and fools among the Trumpvidians? Oh, yes, I believe there really are. But I'm also convinced that there are quite a few of them who are quite smart and intelligent, but have 'motivated ignorance'. I, for one, will look with new eyes at those 'repentant Trumpvidians' that I have disparaged in the past. Because if they truly have changed their political views, it means that they are going against their own group. And that is an almighty hard thing to do...
  15. Carry on from here http://www.freejinger.org/topic/30755-political-cartoons-part-3-where-laughing-is-better-than-crying/?do=findComment&comment=1574715
  16. Again, I have nothing pithy to say, just a bunch of fuck that guy. Continued from here:

  18. Seems like a lot of politicians (especially, to me, state wide positions) are saying and doing some pretty crazy stuff. Not enough, maybe, to merit a thread of their own, but I thought maybe we could do a round-up? Exhibit 1. Michele Fiore - Nevada Assemblywoman, Bundy supporter, Finicum apologist, gun nut https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michele_Fiore#IRS_investigation (Yes, I'm sourcing wiki - because of the extensive list of sources down at the end of the page.) She's the blonde in the middle.
