Political brinksmanship

Last edited Thu Jan 30, 2020, 01:49 AM - Edit history (2)

Dershowitz argues Trump’s able to do virtually anything...

McConnell calls no witnesses and admits no evidence in a trial...

Roberts steals the 2000 presidency...

Voter suppression ... currently a quarter million removals already in preparation for November.

We have failed each of their challenges to see just how much they could get away with. They are ruthless. They cannot be compromised with. You cannot play nice with them. You cannot sit back and “accept” their unfairness. Because they have taken the best and brightest and they will go for the least of us as well. Their trophy wall has Hillary’s and Gore’s heads hanging on it.

I really do have to give them props for relentlessness and focus —they’ve used it to bring America to the current brink of Constitutional collapse. And WE have done NOTHING to stop them.

And now we will look ahead hopefully (foolishly) to November while they and their judges are systematically disenfranchising voters.

Definition of insanity: Doing the same thing and expecting different results.

1. Honestly starting to panic

 

Honestly I think it comes down to media and messaging. Look at the ratings and reach of Fox News, so many conservatives only turn to Fox and they are very good at spinning the news or completely lying and the people believe it. His bases eats it up because they have been conditioned not to believe the "liberal" media, for years the Limbaugh's, Hannity's and Beck's have made them so afraid that they cannot even tell reality from fiction and really they don't care. It's anecdotal but my dad is a die hard Fox Repub, even when show him facts he will just revert to "that's how I feel" and then shut down from any further discussion. I know should stay optimistic, but Nov really concerns me, our candidate not only has to beat Trump and the Repubs, but also the cheating we know is coming. Our electronic voting is so vulnerable and they have shown they have no limits. Look at Georgia's textbook example of voter suppression, it isn't a one off, its the goddamn plan. Then the stacking of the Federal judges, I keep wondering if the reason the wall is so important isn't to keep people out but more to keep us in.

3. Trump term two would be a nightmare scenario, the only hope we have is November.

5. Yes the media is a major casualty of course. The loss of

people’s ability to discern truth and facts is incomprehensible to me. It’s like these people are zombies. God help us.
