  1. Now that the Democrats have the majority in the House of Representatives, I think it would be fair to give the House its own thread. In it, we can post about all the many important investigations the House Committees will be holding in the coming months, and any other important news, like this: I'd like to know who those seven Repugliklans were.
  2. Alright, Updated list (that will expand and grow) of resources we have talked about in the What Now? thread.

I asked the person who answered what the most effective way to be sure my support counted. She said to email a new address set up specifically for this issue, as well as the two administrators.

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. I thought I'd start a thread to talk about the last (to date) legitimate President of the United States. No it's not Fuck Face von Grand Wizard. It's President Barack Obama. He had this to say about the Parkland anniversary today; I have no interest in what aforementioned Fuck Face has to say about the anniversary cause it's probably just a bunch of horseshit.

    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.
  7. The Miami Herald has just published this unbelievable investigative story on how Jeffrey Epstein avoided serious prison time for running a large, multi-national sex ring that preyed on underage teenage girls. The original case, back in the mid-2000s, is the one that also involved Prince Andrew and Alan Dershowitz -- and yes, because it's Florida, Mar-A-Lago is mentioned. [Trigger warning for descriptions of abuse in article & related videos] Much, much more at the Miami Herald link.
  8. https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/27/us/alabama-pregnant-woman-shot-in-stomach-manslaughter-indictment-trnd/index.html This is horrifying. And I'm seriously afraid that it's only the beginning. My take is that she may have instigated the fight or prolonged it, but I don't think that she wanted to lose her child. I see this as the beginning of our rights being stripped away. I think that it was only a matter of time until a woman was charged, it would not matter what the circumstances were. I think the powers that be have been waiting and this situation is what they will use.
  9. 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?

    Wikileaks

    I'm starting this new topic because Wikileaks has just released thousands of CIA documents, and is promising more. As it concerns the US Intelligence community, I thought it would be appropriate to discuss it here. Here are two articles about it: http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-39193008?ocid=socialflow_twitter and http://www.news.com.au/technology/online/wikileaks-releases-thousands-of-cia-documents-showing-hacking-capacity-and-how-phones-are-being-targeted/news-story/15b2a399e2a7f65b89acc3b08d9707e9
  11. I am out of pithy things to say, so, just, ONWARD. Continued from here:
  12. 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!
  13. So, we now have an announcement that there will probably be a vote in the "latter half of next year". I hope that this time people aren't swayed by the dumbing down of Scotland as a country. We are not just some tiny, quaint little amusement park for the English upper classes, we have a long history of innovation and a world-class education system. Few of us voted for this mess, almost no one voted for the return of racism and the continuation of sectarianism. Literally no one is happy with imposed poverty coming from Westminster. I hope we don't fuck it up this time around.
  14. 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.
  15. Hi friends! Much like we did in 2016, I'm going to make a thread for the midterms. It will open up with the polls tomorrow. Feel free to put your tears, your celebrations, your polling info, your I voted, basically whatever happens tomorrow related to the midterms here. Polls open at 7am on the East Coast, so this thread will open then as well.
