What do you expect? They voted in and re-elected George Bush in the early 2000's after an illegal war that killed hundreds of thousands.

of course answers are not that easy. The truth of the matter is why in America there were the conditions for Trump to get elected in.
Using your argument, the Nazi supporters who gleefully cheered on the Jewish death camps in WW2 were complete excused because the blame lies with people who let "conditions" develop in Germany 'for Hitler to get elected'. Hang your head in shame.
Wow, that doesn't even make sense. You obviously think numerous historians who detailed how the post was conditions and complicated web of events in Germany which led to Hitler's rise to power and WWII are nazi apologists now. You have outdone yourself with using tragedy to attempt to troll China's Appeaser.

I'll also point out I'm half Jewish Ali and lost family in those disasters. Perhaps when you come to Britain you should got to dinner with Ken Livingstone.

Erm, he has two parents, one of which is Jewish..... 1 divided by 2 or 1/2. Or half.
That's not how it works.

Technically, he's Jewish if his mum is Jewish, but not if his dad is.

You can't be half.

But that's a technicality.


You realise that Jewish is ethnic as well as religious?
Orthodox Judaism and Conservative Judaism follow Jewish law (Halakha), deeming a person to be Jewish if their mother is Jewish or if they underwent a halakhic conversion. Reform Judaism and Reconstructionist Judaism accept both matrilineal and patrilineal descent as well as conversion. Karaite Judaism predominantly follows patrilineal descent as well as conversion.

Here we go. Either this or Amendment 25 will do.

The worry is, the man has the codez. How should that be handled?
if going for either it should be amendment 25 ; using impeachment proceedings will show it up for the farce it is - yey we have the numbers now to finally kick him out and it loses sight of the grounds for doing so ; and there should be repercussions for his actions, only thing is you can be sure he wants to be fcuked out to show himself is literally the outsider that rocked the establishment - switch off his twitter, facebook, yelp, linkedin, instagram and let him fcuk off

I heard that if Trump is impeached again he constitutionally cannot run for a 2nd term as President. Not sure if this was an error, or in fact if I misheard, but if it is correct it could be a lifesaver and get out of jail free card for the GOP.

I don't think it is "a second impeachment stops him running again". If that was the case, if the House is held by the opposition, they could simply impeach a first term president twice, without it being accepted by the Senate, and stop him running for a second term.

I believe if he is impeached and then it is enforced by the Senate, they can then pass a bill to prevent him ever holding federal office again.

Might be a coin flip whether that is a good thing for the Dems or not - if you are confident he will never get voted in again, then it may be worth having him run again (or even just spending 3 years tire-kicking the idea of him running again), to disrupt the GOP from moving forward. On the other hand, it may just send large swathes of his base back into their hovels, refusing to ever vote again.

Then again, this is America, so he is just as likely to win if he runs in 2024, in spite of it all. :lol:

Here we go. Either this or Amendment 25 will do.

The worry is, the man has the codez. How should that be handled?
if going for either it should be amendment 25 ; using impeachment proceedings will show it up for the farce it is - yey we have the numbers now to finally kick him out and it loses sight of the grounds for doing so ; and there should be repercussions for his actions, only thing is you can be sure he wants to be fcuked out to show himself is literally the outsider that rocked the establishment - switch off his twitter, facebook, yelp, linkedin, instagram and let him fcuk off
A second impeachment stops him running again I think I read?
Shit, impeach him ....again ! and this time the Senate gets to fcuk him out
And it will be a little bit of a fuck you to the Republicans who refused to convict him last time because they cared more about retaining their man than about the standards that a president should be held to. With one even - laughably - saying that she thought he had learned his lesson.

Time for a big fat Told You So to those people. Let them be seen to stand by a lunatic insurrectionist or admit publicly that they were wrong.
