Re: And Then There Were Four (The Impeachment Thread)

Re: Putin on the Writs

The claim is that Jill Stein produced a spoiler effect, and that Russians cultivated relationships with her while she was doing that. Not terribly credible, though. She made one of many handy scapegoats for Team Blue (which at the time tried out everyone who wasn't Hillary Clinton), but she ran for...

Re: Putin on the Writs

So did Putin have dinner with 175k people in four states individually so he could use his hypno-eyez on them, or did he send out his army of Putin-bots to do it? Maybe it was his orbital brain control laser. What it must be like to live in a world where money and connections and various other forms...

Re: And Then There Were Four (The Impeachment Thread)

Gallup: 52% Support Impeachment and Removal

I know he'd be the fourth to be officially cited by impeachment, but how cool would it be to have been alive when the first one was actually pulled from office via a constitutional mechanism? Could it really be?

Re: Putin on the Writs

Re: Putin on the Writs

Also, not to pick at old wounds, but I just want to point out, regarding the video posted above of the Russian troops moving into the abandoned U.S. base in Syria: Somewhere upthread I was mocked as supposedly claiming the Red Army was going to be marching down American streets. Well, if a U.S. mili...

Re: Putin on the Writs

3 years on, it doesn't matter why Trump won and Clinton lost. Debating it is rather pointless unless Clinton decides to run again in 2020. [Everybody stop barfing!] At this point, I just want Trump out and I'm even willing to settle for Warren as POTUS. (Or even a few months of Pence if the Senate ...

Emails, maybe. It's a violation of procedure. Benghazi? The left doesn't do "stabbed in the back" conspiracies as well as the right. It's just not their thing. They might be able to fixate on the shittiness of blaming the documentary filmmaker, and somebody would surely fault a Red administration f...

Re: Putin on the Writs

"the usual deniers" is a pretty uncharitable way to describe "people who disagree with me". I admit it is a bit untoward, but it's not unfounded like, say, an accusation of mental illness for disagreeing. And when one spends the bulk of this thread trying to warn those who one thought were friends ...

Also, just to be clear, I'm not trying to claim populism didn't exist before Putin's global assault (as the words you are trying to put in my mouth claim), just that Putin found a way to empower populism for his own designs...

You have a very dramatic claim - what would it take to falsify it?

Supposed groundswell. Ahahahaa! Oh my god you actually think Russia invented modern populism for the entire globe.

Obviously there was a groundswell. I mean, what world do you live in? There was a dramatic global populist movement to retreat from global markets.

Re: Putin on the Writs

No, it means he, and tens of millions of voters wanted to do it and it had nothing to do with russia. Is everyone who likes tariffs taking orders from Putin just because Putin benefits from some but by no means all of the trade disruption? Because, that would be a stupid thing to believe. That's pr...
