Re: Putin on the Writs

There are sanctions in place, even new sanctions tied to election interference. https://www.rferl.org/a/russia-sanctions-timeline/29477179.html ...that exist only on paper. None of these have been enforced by the Trump administration and some have even been lifted. That is an untrue statement. Huh?...

Re: Putin on the Writs

That's one theory. The other is he never has cared and still doesn't and he uses the rule as a binding constraint on others to strategic advantage. Well, that implies there is some strategic advantage to be gained for the U.S. in withdrawal. What U.S. goals or aims were being "bindingly constrained...

Re: Putin on the Writs

I actually see this as similar to the NK agreement. Putin was ignoring it before. It may be politically bad to get out of it but what everyone else has been doing is pretending like he wasn't violating the terms so you could pretend the treaty still existed. But before, with the treaty in place, yo...

Not a statement of support or opposition, just a perhaps premature prognostication. Considering she'll be 35 a week before the election, very premature.

Have they been able to reproduce any physical damage like that which was reported by embassy staff? Are these crickets known t...

Dude, is it just me, or does anyone else think it's strange that apparent sleazeball and Enemy of my Enemy, Michael Avenatti, appears to have several legal issues of his own so suddenly after the midterms? The domestic abuse thing is fishy AF. It was first reported by TMZ, a gossip site run by Trump...

Re: Putin on the Writs

Are we placing too much weight upon spending as a metric of military strength though? I mean, yeah, we're spending multiples more than the next 10 countries combined on defense, but this is the same government that famously spends $30k for a hammer in old saw numbers. How do we match up in actual nu...

If Beto keeps up a good image for the next four years he could be a good VP pick, since the potential to flip Texas would make Trump or Pence shit bricks. VP Beto would be one of those safe moves that wouldn't work. As VP, his only purpose would be to swing Texas blue, which he was unable to do las...

I sure hope these reports of Hillary throwing her pantsuit into the ring for 2020 are BS or some sort of trial balloon by a staffer designed to convince her NOT to run, because if the Dems nominate her, they will deserve every fleck of shit Trump will throw at them after he curb-stomps her in the ge...
