Trump says Democrats don't give a damn about crime:

He's probably wishing they didn't give a damn about crime right now :lol:
How is that Mueller investigation going?

In the interests of fairness and consistency, I would also like to call for a full and fair investigation by the FBI to find out if in fact, AOC really did dance while in College.

Her accusers may look like the village elders from Footloose, but it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make.

The bold alone implies that she wasn’t challenged. Instead her win is regarded as one of the great modern political upsets.

on the positive side it’s nice to see some of his most ardent supporters are still prepared to come into the thread and grab some motherfvcking pussy.

Yes, she ran an effective insurgent campaign against Crowley, whose hardly going to mobilise the youth vote in the way she could.
Since then it's been vapid twitter clapbacks, vapid sloganeering and working against other dem nominees like Davids in their primaries.

I get it, she's young, pandering and a lightning rod for ratings, but she can hardly be called anything else yet.

Pandering to whom exactly? She doesn't take corporate money so the only person she panders to are her voters. Don;t know about you but I'm pretty ok with a politician doing that.

If your thing is empty pandering, that's fine, fill your boots.
Let's see what happens when she actually has a couple months in Congress.

I'm just not sure that pandering is the right word to describe what's going on.
(THIS is pandering: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPTKR12cUqc )


But all the AOC stuff is just distraction material really.

Problem is, what's it really distracting from?

The Wall?
The Shutdown?
Manafort's lawyers accidentally-on-purpose revealing he'd sent sensitive data to pro-Russian Ukrainians?
Mnuchin deciding to lift sanctions on Russian oligarch Deripaska because... reasons?
Trump deciding "he can do national emergency" (sic)?
Rosenstein announcing he's about to step down?
Rosenstein announcing he won't step down until Mueller has wrapped things up?
Trump lying through his teeth about every aspect of his presidency?

AOC's statement on the yellow jackets didn't endear me towards her.
She also seems to lack a bit of party discipline which assists gives fodder for right wing talking heads to distract from what you mention.

Yep, he's wittering on about declaring an emergency again. He should just do it.

Campaigning for it down in Texas will not make a blind bit of difference to the facts at hand, so if he's going to do it he may as well save the cost and boring people with more kindergarten level lies and just declare the frigging emergency he's peeing his pants over.

I suspect that the smarter people in the WH (if there are such people) have worked out that the National Emergency doesn't actually get him any closer to building the wall. It's a toothless tiger

He was like the 4th or 5th most powerfiul guy in the Democratic party wasn't he? She beat him aged 28 while working in a bar which is really impressive on it's own. The fact she has so many "conservatives" upset is also quite impressive.

Sure BUT Bernie and co. have also brought issues like Healthcare and Wall St to the forefront. It'll probably take more time but imo if the Dems focused more on class issues and less on wishy washy identity stuff they'll just get stronger.

Absolutely. It would be churlish not to give her some time before judging her performance, harshly or otherwise.

If it ends the government shutdown and gives Donny 'a win', he should be encouraged.

Just read the monologue after seeing this. Don't agree with Carlson on many things but he's spot on with this imo.

But our leaders don’t care. We are ruled by mercenaries who feel no long-term obligation to the people they rule. They’re day traders. Substitute teachers. They’re just passing through. They have no skin in this game, and it shows. They can’t solve our problems. They don’t even bother to understand our problems

I think most of us, in whatever country we live in have known this for some time now.

It gives him more problems than wins

A major issue is that it doesn't actually give him any new money. Instead it MIGHT enable him to redirect money already approved for other needed military programmes to the wall. That'll go down well

The next issue is that it seems fairly clear that he won;t be able to get the army to actually build the wall on US territory, seeing as most of the territory they would be building it on would be privately held land. Even getting them to build on Federal land is probably illegal.

So, it doesn't achieve any of his goals and doesn't even get him vaguely close to being able to claim a win, even if it it doesn't get blocked by the courts

It won't work?
I know the "plan" (such as it is) is to declare a national emergency, then simply have Army Engineers build 2000 Miles of 30ft high solar powered see-through steel slatted concrete wall. I reckon they've got all those raw materials on standby ready to go. It's just a case of Eminently Domaining all the private land on the border and Bob's your Uncle.

And the fingerpointing crowd who tried to use it to somehow denigrate her added in the (incorrect) tidbit that she was in highschool there, for some added forbidden naughty registered sex offender thoughts. Not creepy at all.

(Thankfully yes, she was college age there and it's perfectly acceptable to consider her to look bang tidy)

WASHINGTON — Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s former personal lawyer who implicated him in a scheme to pay hush money to two women claiming to have had affairs with him, has agreed to testify before the House Oversight Committee next month and give “a full and credible account” of his work for Mr. Trump.

Mr. Cohen’s decision to appear before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Feb. 7 sets the stage for a blockbuster public hearing that threatens to further damage the president’s image and could clarify the depth of his legal woes. Mr. Cohen, a consigliere to Mr. Trump when he was a real estate developer and presidential candidate as well as informally as president, was privy to the machinations of Mr. Trump’s inner circle and key moments under scrutiny by both the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, and federal prosecutors in New York.

He could soon share them on national television under oath.

“In furtherance of my commitment to cooperate and provide the American people with answers, I have accepted the invitation by Chairman Elijah Cummings to appear publicly on February 7,” Mr. Cohen said in a statement. “I look forward to having the privilege of being afforded a platform with which to give a full and credible account of the events which have transpired.”

Mr. Cohen pleaded guilty in federal court in Manhattan in August to tax fraud, making false statements to a bank and a campaign finance violation. In court, Mr. Cohen said that violation was the result of payments he made at the behest of his former client to a woman who was prepared to go public during the 2016 campaign about an affair with Mr. Trump years earlier.

Since then, Mr. Cohen has spent more than 70 hours with federal prosecutors in the Manhattan as well as with Mr. Mueller, who is investigating Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election and Mr. Trump’s campaign. In November, Mr. Cohen pleaded guilty to an additional charge — lying to Congress about how long negotiations for a Trump Tower project in Moscow went on in 2016.

That cooperation has earned him the ire of Mr. Trump, who has called Mr. Cohen a “weak person.” The president said he did nothing wrong in the campaign finance charge, and he accused his former lawyer of lying to prosecutors to try to get a reduced sentence. In court filings, prosecutors have not named Mr. Trump, referring to a “candidate for federal office” and “Individual-1.”

It was not immediately clear whether prosecutors in New York or for Mr. Mueller would ask Mr. Cohen to keep from discussing topics still under investigation. Nor was it clear when Mr. Cummings formally issued an invitation to testify.

On Thursday, Mr. Cummings said he was consulting Mr. Mueller’s office to ensure that he did not hinder its efforts.

They don't like it uppity-em. Christ, what a tone deaf term to use there, Rush.

In the mean time, Mnuchin is going to have to explain to Congress why he chose to lift sanctions on Russian oligarch Deripaska. I'm sure it'll be totally innocent. :twisted:
