Re: Orange is the new President

Still no fan of Trump, but from a purely aesthetic view, I really dig this painting, especially the artist's tactful depictions of lesser RPOTUS'es: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/that-painting-of-trump-having-a-diet-coke-with-abraham-lincoln-is-now-hanging-in-the-white-house/ar-BBOotrb?oci...

Re: Orange is the new President

Donald Trump the guy probably won't ever face charges, but I"m pretty sure the Trump Organization can look forward to being gutted by the NYAG over the next 3-5 years, which actually might be worse for him. I want footage of the Sheriff's deputies dragging him out of Trump Tower. I will watch it on...

5) What are the consequences for Russia to get caught? What if, hypothetically, the GRU hacked into the DNC and a US ally had video footage of the room in which the hackers conducted their operation?

Re: Putin on the Writs

We have a President who can't bring himself to denounce Nazis and Klansmen, and a substantial part of the public doesn't care. Nor should they. White supremacy in America is at its all time weakest. That doesn't jive with facts. Care to offer any proof to that assertion? Or are you saying what we'r...

Re: Putin on the Writs

How easy would it be if you stopped caring about whether you left a trace or not? Because the enemy does't care. Everything they are doing is basically out in the open. If the biggest barrier is that they'll get caught, then they're four presidential tweets away from it becoming "The Dems just want ...

IF it becomes clear after the 2018 midterms that Russian hackers gained access to our voting machines and set the reels, will that be enough to convince people how grave a threat we are facing?

Ducey is up for reelection in Nov. Appointing Joe gets him nothing since Maricopa County (3.8 million vs 3.2 million in rest of state) has proven it's already very tired of Joe. And the rest of the state is more Blue leaning than Maricopa County (so even more anti-Joe). A younger Team Red guy who i...
