If only they could have been this hardcore when Eric Holder got people killed, then was held in contempt. Oh right I forgot. We dont do apolitical law anymore.
"Its only the side I don't like that does bad things"....
House gives a directive, IRS ignores it. Republicans have the Senate, so there will be zero consequences.
House gives a directive, Barr refuses to show up. Republicans have the Senate, so there will be zero consequences.
Mueller can walk into the House and give irrefutable evidence that Trumpie and Putin planned to defraud the US and sacrificed a million babies to Chernobog. Republicans have the Senate, so there will be zero consequences.
Hell, with how bad the US is at electing pieces of shit that they know will fuck them over, I am not even certain that Trumpie will lose in 2020 despite his abysmal favorability numbers and mountains of evidence that he and his administration is absolutely corrupt, and that the GOP will shield and conspire the entire way if it means that they can win (even if it actually becomes a stolen election; they have no qualms about voter suppression and gerrymandering).
It's plausible that at some point something clicks in the voters' minds and the good economic news lifts Trump to victory. How the economy does in the last few years of a first term matter most for predicting a president's re-election chances.
But keep these two things in mind:
Historically, once we take into account how voters feel about a president overall, it doesn't matter what his economic approval rating is. A bad overall approval rating has meant very bad news for a president's re-election hopes.
- Voters think the economy is good and have thought that for a while. Trump is still struggling, even though we're well into year three of his presidency. If the economy hasn't already translated for Trump, when will it?
- Overall approval ratings probably matter a lot more than economic approval ratings when it comes to a president's re-election hopes. Remember, voters disapproved of Obama on the economy and thought Republican Mitt Romney would be better on it. It didn't matter. Obama won.
Cool cool.Meanwhile Trump is saying he should get to stay in for two more years without an election because of the investigation “stealing” his time
See Everyone? Lerticus gets it! The longer Trumps in office the more opportunities he gives for reform through his incompetance.Cool cool.
No way that the House will agree to an amendment to Article 2 of the Constitution, but if he wants to try and whine and complain to enough states to have them trigger a Constitutional Convention under Article 5... go hard, retard. Maybe in the rewrite things that are nationally popular will be enforced as rights, like race, sex, and gender equality, guaranteed access to abortion, environmental protection, and get rid of that 2A in favor of more rational measures that protect the populace.
A Constitutional Convention would be the clusterfuck of all clusterfucks, and I personally welcome the chaos upon America, my eternal enemy.
Yes, I have explained this many times. The APA is shit, and they only created a rule to protect the APA, not it's membership or clientele. Most civilized nations' associations for psychology do not create this sort of rule. Then again, the APA is also pretty fucking useless at enforcement, so any psychologist breaking 7.3 would be unlikely to even face official censure.And thousands of psychiatrists said Barry Goldwater was unfit to be president. Nowadays the apa banned such surveys for that reason
Source: Political StatePolitical State: Mitch McConnell Under Investigation By House Committee For Russia Payoff said:Just over a month ago, we found out that RusAl, the largest aluminum manufacturer in Russia, was planning to invest more than $200 million in an aluminum rolling mill in Kentucky — the largest new such plant in America in four decades. In fact, we reported on it here at Political State and told you exactly what seemed suspicious about the whole deal.
In a letter sent to the Treasury Department and signed by Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters, the chairs of the House Intelligence and House Financial Services Committees, and by Sherrod Brown and Ron Wyden, the ranking members on the Senate Finance and Senate Banking Committees, Democrats requested that Treasury look into the investment by RusAl. After all, Deripaska himself is still under sanction, and the legal finagling that was done to make it appear as though he’s not profiting off the deal fell through when observers found that while his RusAl share would be proportionately lower and restricted only to final profits as they made their way back to Russia, he actually owns the bank that would make all the interest too.
It remains to be seen whether Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury Secretary, will actually open an investigation of any kind. But at the very least, everyone involved now knows that lawmakers are on to their scheme.
can we just arrest them now to stop on going crimes before they sell us all down the river for some shinny beads
