Right and Hillary was merely defending herself. I don’t know where the idea that Hillary didn’t speak on issues important to the Middle Class comes from. She totally did. A lot of people weren’t listening because she didn’t do it in the rhetoric they may have liked but she certainly did.

Anyhow Re: Hillary. She’s allowed to write her side of the story. And I’m sorry but I don’t want to hear complaints about her dividing the party from people who constantly threaten to go to the Greens when things don’t go their way. And I don’t like Sanders being treated like he did nothing to merit criticism in the primaries and GE and that he was totally innocent. The Clinton campaign did some stuff I disagreed with, I for example was really rubbed the wrong way by Gloria Steinhem’s suggestion that young women who liked Bernie were just doing it to impress men but you know what, I had a bigger problem with actual Candidate Sanders dismissing Soutehrn states as being Republican anyhow and not respecting the minority electorate of those states.

Chain of events in the DACA, debt ceiling is batcrap insane.

GOP calls for 18 month extension; goes down to 6 months
Pelosi/Schumer say 3 months - and Trump agrees, with the Dem leadership.

Then as that goes down, Ivanka comes in and things completely go off the rails?

What the hell is Ivanka doing just coming/going as she pleases? Meeting ongoing with Congressional leaders and she just traipses right in?

Trump has absolutely no idea what he’s doing. He has no discipline, and neither does anyone else around him other than perhaps Kelly, who’s incapable of imposing discipline on anyone in the Trump cabal. It’s impossible to control events, when Trump can simply ignore everything and do as he pleases and his kids can come running into the room whenever they see fit to do/say whatever they want.

The entire admin is a bunch of terrible toddlers with no impulse control.

Update on story from downstairs regarding Confederate monuments in Dallas:

City council meeting happened this morning, and vote for immediate removal has passed.

Dallas Council Votes To Remove Confederate Monuments

DALLAS (cbsdfw.com) - Dallas leaders on Wednesday voted to remove the city’s Confederate monuments.

Dozens of people — more than 50 total — signed up to speak to the city council about this issue. Mayor Mike Rawlings allowed each of them to have one minute to speak prior to council members discussing the resolution. Those speakers continued until just after 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday.

Crews are already at the monuments and beginning the removal process.

You’d think he’d say or do something dumb enough by now that even the truest adherents of MAGAism would recognize it for being against True Patriot Conservative Principles.

If Drumpf sticks to this debt ceiling deal, this might be the first major conflict with his rabid base. Unless they don’t care, which is possible.

I think that’s the most scary thing of all Charles. Guys like White that were once even in the fringe on the right are influencing the WH. Richard Spencer was Stephen Miller’s mentor in college and it’s bad enough that Miller went on to be a Senate aide for Sessions but now he’s in the WH influencing Executive policy. We have gone so far back with this President. It’s going to take a truly special leader to get us out of it and hoenstly I don’t know who that is.

That’s true. Trump gets away with a lot with his base that a normal politician would never. I think it’s because his appeal to his base is that he’s an unapologetic bigoted asshole and that’s long what the Republican Party base has wanted in their man.

from your link

With Trump’s acquiescence to the Democrats’ fiscal demands, their chances of winning a DACA fix have also improved. Schumer and Pelosi specifically wanted only a short-term increase in the debt ceiling because it gives Democrats additional leverage to demand concessions during the next round of spending fights in December, when Congress will be under pressure to make a big year-end agreement before lawmakers go home for the holidays. Republicans know they can’t pass an increase in the debt ceiling without Democratic votes, and the more frequently they have to do it, the more bargaining power Pelosi and Schumer have.

The people who shit on the Clintons have no idea how many different candidates the Clintons have campaigned for and maybe that’s why some of them even those who may have been more idealistic like Sanders may have prefered her. It’s nice knowing someone has your back. I don’t think Bernie ever campaigned for anyone else until this past year. Politics is a team game. The Sanders diehards don’t seem to get that.

I’m really sick of the nasty nativism I see from my fellow white Americans. No empathy at all at what it must feel like to be an immigrant. I’m not an immigrant and indeed neither are my parents or grandparents but I do have my great grandfather’s petition for citizenship along with his daughter- my great aunt’s memories of the American dream he wanted for his family.

re: #470 HappyWarrior

The more honest ones like Coulter admit it when they talk about having a Nuremberg like citizenship law. Annie’s idea is that only people with all four grandparents born in the US can vote which would mean for me despite the fact that my first immigrant ancestor arrived here in George Washington’s time, I would be the first to be able to vote in my family as all four my mom’s grandparents were immigrants and one of my Dad’s. The GOP knows they shit the bed with minority voters. Instead of admitting error or trying to be more welcoming, they want this because they know they’re a failure of a party when Americans of all backgrounds vote.

Ironically, this would keep my vote in play while disqualifying my MAGAt father, whose own father was born to Austro-Hungarian immigrants in 1916, and whose mother was similarly born to immigrants around the same time.

Unfortunately, in the main, it’d probably have the effect that’s intended and my case would be a major outlier.

Trump himself would be ineligible under Coulter’s dumb idea. Momma Trump was from Scotland. But yeah it’s crazy for me, I did the math and I would be the first person in my family eligible for the reasons why I described. I saw this morning that someone busted Tomi Lehren when she pulled the “my family followed the rules” card by pointing out her great great grandfather in fact was indicated for lying on a naturalization form. Oops. I actually don’t have the naturalization records for all my family. By the way, whereabouts in AH? Mom’s Mom’s parents were Slovaks while ehr dad’s were Slovenes. We’ve been joing that we hope that if Grandpa were still here, he wouldn’t have fallen for the fact that Trump married a Slovene girl.

‘You’re speaking immigrant’: Oklahoma man goes on berserk rant caught on video by Hispanic woman

An Oklahoma woman was accosted at a thrift store by another shopper who overheard her speaking Spanish on her cell phone.

The Durant woman, Maty Roberts, was speaking to her sister on the phone while shopping at Goodwill when an unshaven white man approached her and began hurling racial slurs, reported KXII-TV.

She said he also harassed her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend before Roberts began recording video.

TBH with you, I hope they fail big time. I consider myself staunchly left but also staunchly opposed to the Sanders wing too. For one, guy won’t even join the aprty. Don’t tell me how to run my party that you won’t even jooin. Two, Bernie isn’t anywhere near as intelligent as Clinton, Obama, and Kerry on the acutal issues. Third, they’re as impatient and know nothing as the TP is about actual policy.

I’m not on the left, but I agree. I don’t want to see the GOP candidate roll up 400+ electoral votes over some BernieBro on Election Night 2020, because means the Sandbaggers still won’t learn. They’ll never learn. The only thing to do is defeat them and drive them out, as Bill Clinton did.

I am on the left, I have completely given up on the Greens (and Peace and Freedom), but I do want some of the Sanders supporters in the fold. Locally, that’s happened at least a little. For me, HRC took the Dem platform in the correct (that is, left) direction and I don’t want backsliding, I want determined promotion of political goals that by and large are pretty damn popular, and terribly underrepresented in Congress.

Dare I say, I think Clinton articulated progrsesivism better than Sanders did since Clinton understood that progressivism is for people of all backgrounds. Sanders is still chasing a WWC pony that left the Dem coalition years ago. If these WWC want to join us, I’m fine with that but they need to realize they’re going to be sharing the dream with racial minorities, DREAMers, LGBT, etc.

I’m afraid that “backsliding” is going to happen. For all the proclamations otherwise, the Democrats simply moved too far for the public to go along with the ARRA/ stimulus and Obamacare and the bugs in the latter’s implementation.

“…Initially, the town council had considered blocking access to the tower. But last month, it voted to commission an expert to assess legal and historical aspects before deciding on its next steps. One idea floated was to put the bell in a museum.

A gentle reminder but we still did win the popular vote. And we still have been winning a lot of special elections (not every) in a lot of ehavily Republican areas. The issue with Sanders and his revolution isn’t really ideology in itself. It’s that they’re not team players. And frankly there are plenty of Democrats that are just as if not more progressive than Sanders in office but you’d never know it since Bernie’s treated like the only real progressive in office by people who want to divide the left.

I thought it was pretty clear, but I will elaborate. The ACA/ Obamacare has a lot of popular provisions concerning keeping children on their parents’ health insurance until they turn 25, limiting the spread in insurance costs between customers, the insurance mandate to increase coverage, and so on. But put them together in a bill that the Congress might pass… and suddenly, the entire package became massively unpopular as the right hated it for doing too much and the left hated it for not being single payer. And that unpopularity lasted and dragged Democrats down for seven years.

TBH I’m not as intimidated as some are about 2020. The Republican base has always hated Hillary Clinton like no other. I’m sure the propaganda will get them hating the next Dem nominee with zeal too but it’s going to be tough. Plus I don’t see this ending well for Trump. He’s quite unpopular, has very little accomplishments to run on, etc. As much as I do like and respect Clinton, Trump’s going to have a totally different challenge if he’s going to be running as an incumbent. In a sense, Trump’s had it easy being able to piss on everyone else’s record. Now he’l have to defend his.

It was still worth it. You have to take risks in politics. Did LBJ pushing for Civil Rights cost in 1966 and 1968? Yeah I’m sure it did but it was the right thing to do. Obama will go down in history as being able to get health care reform done and that’s a pretty big feather in his cap.

As for the ARRA, you’ve obviously forgotten the cries of PORKULUS! SOLYNDRA! and all the rest that were bellowed by Republicans and many Democrats, especially since the incoming Administration had underestimated the depth of the Great Recession, resulting in an economy that did not meet the projections Obama confidently produced in 2009. That’s when we not only lost the House but the states, resulting in hostile redistricting that will punish Democrats for years, maybe even decades, to come.

Yeah you’re right. Obama’s only legacy will be being black and the Russian interference. Nevermind the fact that he supported LGBT citizens like no President before him. Nevermind that he reduced unemployment after 2008 or that he helped repair relations after Bush alienated a lot of our allies. Obama was handled the most difficult situation of any President in my lifetime and he handled it very well. I have my disagreements for some of his decisions but you sell him short.

I’m still wondering how exactly Obama was supposed to help with the claims of Russian interference. Republicans would have claimed sour grapes, and Obama would have been revealing classified information that could have gotten him in trouble, and for what? Starting the independent investigation a few months sooner? It wasn’t going to invalidate the election, no matter what - and if it did, it would set a terrifying precedent.
