The interesting part of the Trump presidency post Ukraine-gate is that he seems to have figured out that he should do the incriminating stuff out in the open and dare anybody in his party to reject him. He just said that China should investigate the Bidens one minute after ruminating about how China should do what the USA asks if they want relief from the trade war.
 
Depends on the claims made wouldn’t you think? Try to keep all the balls in the air when you hit reply.
One of the claims made in the article is that the decline of Unions has caused the middle class to have faltering wages. That is a stretch to use the data from 2012.

Try to keep your eye on the streets and traffic while riding.
 
What rest? Why waste time thinking about that?
Well, why waste time on this forum?

I think that there will be ton's of great info come out about what slimeballs the 4 stooges are..don, pence, barr and pompeo...and it'll be obvious what a corrupt turd trump is by Nov. 2020. It may go to the senate and the spineless GOP will have to go on record supporting his corruption..consequences for Nov 2020 as well.

BUT, biggest news is that trump is a adderall addict..no surprise there.

There's a difference between thinking about the historical conditions that produced Trump, and the institutional inertia that keep people from laughing him out of the office and country rather than simply wondering if or when he'll be impeached. Let's not forget that during his first year in office there were several of us posting articles to the effect of the former and other issues while you showed up every day to say that Trump would be gone in a year.

I aim to spend my senescence differently. Posting links that others can read, argue with, take things from is a bit different than showing up every day to rant like a petulant school boy. If the links have ever been of use to anyone than that's a positive.

As long as people are wasting time thinking about Trump and his pathetic lack of self control than the systems that enable him keep going. You keep up the good work.

That is a good article.

Now it is easy to see how a large majority of the public and media have lost focus on who will become the candidate in 2020. It would seem the media has no confidence in the current 2020 candidates.

They run the chance that middle of the road Democrats will leave the party or not vote. The country will be left with radicals on both sides that have taken the power from the middle.
 
I am surprised that the article did not mention Morning Joe and how they allowed Trump to call in at his leisure during the 2016 GOP primary. With regards to cable news, it is a fight for the eyeballs of the 60+ crowd mostly and Trump was a gravy-train that all the cable news networks rode hard. For MSNBC specifically, their programming is practically designed to steer democrats into the middle of the road crowd. For the most part, I find it practically indistinguishable from CNN in terms of ideology. (Observed mostly from the weekend programming as I don't see much of their primetime hosts). In fairness, you do see more people of color on MSNBC.

Most people have not even begun to pay attention to 2020, other than those in Iowa and New Hampshire. Most national polls are still heavily weighted to name recognition.
 
Pulling out of Syria seems vaguely nuts. Glad to see some hard pushback on this. Never know what to make of his incessant fawning and deferring to authoritarians, but two things seem certain. He's a coward, and he really is Putin's be-otch
.
 
Some basics
Trump will not be impeached.
The rise and fall of union membership and union labor " popularity has little to do with the fall.collapse of the middle class.
There have been 4 plant closings on Trump's watch and the standing in the picket line dopes still support Trump.
Farmers,ranchers, assembly line workers...not so many years ago a guy turning a wrench or someone plowing a field...a cowboy..would not pee on a NY city slicker blow hard if he was on fire.
A Christian..fundamental or otherwise would not be taking directions from the moral compass of a guy that parades naked women for money..multiple divorced,never been to church and had sex outside marriage w hookers and porn stars.
Any farmer or anybody else that thought Trump knew anything about farming or holding a union job is an idiot.
If you remember at the beginning of this clusterphk, Trump had sarcastic words for the Japanese prime minister about imports ..Dumb Don didn't know that many popular Japanese name brand cars are made in the US..not imported.
Trump went on a tear about German cars..he even went on to say that he was upset seeing so many BMW, Mercedes and Volkswagen models on US roads..he boldly said he would reverse that trend..again he didn't know..that most of the cars he was badmouthing were made in America,by American workers.
The UAW and the other warm bags of corrupt discharge didn't say anything as Trump trashed their work and workers..
Carrier?Foxconn?
Organized labor should fact check turd Trump.broke teachers unions..broke the fire and police union right to collectively bargain..
And the hires at his own resorts..n-gga please.
 
No. If the Republican senators decide to cut bait, the result would be Trump resigning, not impeachment.
He may be courting a negotiated resignation that includes personal immunity. Both parties could support that and he'd avoid jail. Otherwise; he's in way too deep already. That said; Mike Pence is totally good with the policies you've seen to date and much more in favor with the deeply religocons that vote in a single block. Wouldn't look forward to that situation either.
 
Germany,Qatar,United Auto Workers, and Boeing..in no particular order but soon Trump may want to solve what is wrong in Turkey and Saudi Arabia..
if any two of these turn upside down Donald will tumble out of the sky
 
From dt twit today: "As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). "

GREAT AND UNMATCHED WISDOM! WTH?!
