The old man's Nixoning pretty hard yet again

Waiting for a modern version of this, perhaps holding up an iPad.

You been watching Maddow too?


Without watching Maddow, this has been on my mind for a while. He keeps on doing it and I can't understand why one of his close staff has told him to keep his stupid fat gob shut.


A couple of Australian parliamentarians did that earlier this year and found themselves charged with contempt of court and having to make grovelling apologies to a state court to avoid the pokey.

Our political system doesn't do a lot of things well, but our separation of powers is pretty boss.

Saw this not ignoring it but it requires a mini dissertation so will get to it lateral.

It is legal under current campaign finance law for the Hillary Clinton campaign to commission an opposition research company to dig up dirt on Donald bubblefart. What is not legal, according to campaign legal experts, is for the campaign to pay a law firm who then hires other to perform campaign related activities without reporting the purpose of the expenditures.


They just used lawyers!?! like how I just used cash to buy my TV instead or running in and stealing it.

I find funny that she followed the same process that Jeb did and yet she is guilty.

You cons use amazing feats of brain power to connect her to guilt but there is an out of order sign when it comes to Trump.

But all that stuff is part of the bigger picture, and a distraction on this thread from the continued implosion of the T-Rump administration. Speaking of which, how is is Asia tour going so far?


They tried before and it thought they got rid of it but it led to untraceable amounts of cash in Superpacs. We need to go back the way it was. It was lots of cash but it all could be traced.

Actually there was a sequel to Birth of a Nation released last year. But it got quietly swept under the carpet when it turned out the director and co-writer were acquitted of rape a few years back. The accuser subsequently committed suicide.

Yup, it'll still be corrupted, it won't make the probelm entirely go away. It 'may' reduce the direct influence, at least temporarily. So reduce the time for the election season. 2 weeks for candidates to be selected, 4 weeks for the campaign. Other countries manage quite well with a 6 week process, the current year long farce is ludicrous and ensures that a mahoosif budget is needed just for the length of the process, and that much of the actual campaigning is actually about fundraising and sucking the collective cocks of donors while promising them special favours if elected.

Not in my lifetime will this happen but imagine just down to 6 months for a primary and then on to the general.

I wonder how many times I would have to relive my life in alternative universes before I would say to someone 'you been watching Maddow too?'

I suspect it would test the multiverse theory to its limits.


I am sure that thought helps you sleep well.

Just seen this.

Quote:
The White House has sought to downplay a major climate change report, which was compiled by 13 US federal agencies.
The study is at odds with assertions from President Donald Trump and several members of his administration.
It says it is "extremely likely" human activity is the "dominant cause" of global warming.
A spokesman for the White House said it supported "rigorous scientific analysis and debate" but added that the climate was "always changing".


Holy fudge, these people are in charge of the most powerful nation in the world and this is their reply to a serious scientific paper.

Ignore all the partisan bullshit, this level of anti-scientific ideology is seriously scary.

Furthermore explain to me the idea to order research, not use it and lose.

I am sure like the nuclear shit, you will prove to be the shitbag you are and move on to another fake scandal.

If nothing else, it really shows the dire need for campaign finance reform.

I'd prefer the radical end of the spectrum that reduced them to public access TV type stuff. A bit like salary caps for sports teams, they have a max that can be spent and then effectively kneecaps any big money backers (Koch bros, Soros take your pick which side offends you). OF course, it'll just funnel all their funds and efforts in to the fake news/ Russian model of interference instead of the much more socially acceptable SUPERPACs and politicians spending 90% of their time whoring themselves out in fundraising endeavours, but at least it'll mean the candidates aren't quite so easily bought and sold, and will suddenly have time to actually propose actual policies, not just soundbites and please for more money.

But all that stuff is part of the bigger picture, and a distraction on this thread from the continued implosion of the T-Rump administration. Speaking of which, how is is Asia tour going so far?


They tried before and it thought they got rid of it but it led to untraceable amounts of cash in Superpacs. We need to go back the way it was. It was lots of cash but it all could be traced.


Yup, it'll still be corrupted, it won't make the probelm entirely go away. It 'may' reduce the direct influence, at least temporarily. So reduce the time for the election season. 2 weeks for candidates to be selected, 4 weeks for the campaign. Other countries manage quite well with a 6 week process, the current year long farce is ludicrous and ensures that a mahoosif budget is needed just for the length of the process, and that much of the actual campaigning is actually about fundraising and sucking the collective cocks of donors while promising them special favours if elected.


Not in my lifetime will this happen but imagine just down to 6 months for a primary and then on to the general.


Yeah, it's highly unlikely to happen any time soon, but it's still something that needs to happen. The desperate need for funds by politicians and the ability of certain interests to quite blatantly buy political influence is just out of control.

I know it took time to get this bad but I don't know how long it will take for it to right itself.

Not Trump that's for sure. She's fairly useful for DJT right now allowing him to hold a mirror up to those accusing him of corruption and removing their would-be moral high ground in the eyes of the masses.

As an aside, I suppose we should all thank that twitter contractor/employee that took Trump's account down for 11 minutes. That might actually focus their security measures on protecting his account from hackers (whose actions could obviously have serious geopolitical consequences).

She's not though. No one cares anymore except Trumps base which he already has.

Just seen this.

Quote:
The White House has sought to downplay a major climate change report, which was compiled by 13 US federal agencies.
The study is at odds with assertions from President Donald bubblefart and several members of his administration.
It says it is "extremely likely" human activity is the "dominant cause" of global warming.
A spokesman for the White House said it supported "rigorous scientific analysis and debate" but added that the climate was "always changing".


Holy fudge, these people are in charge of the most powerful nation in the world and this is their reply to a serious scientific paper.

Ignore all the partisan bullshit, this level of anti-scientific ideology is seriously scary.


HILLARY
