If Senators are making coordinated calls for Franken to resign and his office has scheduled ...

an announcement for tomorrow.

Then the odds are that his decision was made prior to any tweet from any senator. Franken can see the political calculus on the wall as well as anyone else, and he knows that the steady stream of accusers (be they real or fake) is a distraction that no one needs or wants.

Franken isn't being forced out by a surprising onslaught of calls to resign. He's taking a hit and allowing his caucus to take cover beforehand. This was queued up and ready to go.

Can we save the #VAGOV freakouts until atleast half of NoVA is in?

VA Twitler Jr. is going to be winning for a while after the voting stops just like Trump was in 2016 and that crazy guy was in 2013 that's just how vote counting in VA works w/ NoVa reporting in close to last. .

For everyone's sanity, can we please hold back the "THE DNC IS DEAD." "NEOLIBERALS COST US VA" "WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?" until 50-60% of NoVA counties have reported in (i.e. 1-2 hours after the polls close)?

Emperor Baby Hands knew: Trump and Sessions Denied Knowing About Russian Contacts. Records Suggest

Otherwise.

At a March 31, 2016, meeting between Mr. Trump and his foreign policy team, Mr. Papadopoulos introduced himself and said “that he had connections that could help arrange a meeting between then-candidate Trump and President Putin,” according to court records.

“He went into the pitch right away,” said J. D. Gordon, a campaign adviser who attended the meeting. “He said he had a friend in London, the Russian ambassador, who could help set up a meeting with Putin.”

Mr. Trump listened with interest. Mr. Sessions vehemently opposed the idea, Mr. Gordon recalled. “And he said that no one should talk about it because it might leak,” he said.


Of course, he knew. However, this just makes a case of Obstruction of Justice in regards to the Comey firing a lot stronger. Tomorrow might be Sessions last day in office.

AF-AM Group: At what point should an entertainer give him/herself up to financial servitude?

Recently, the mention of Beyonce buying a 90 mil has caused a lot of "concern" among certain DUers who feel it could have been spent on other social causes and a few that are concerned that someone could make that much money.

So my question is, at what point should Beyonce stop taking a percentage of the proceeds of her various products and start doing stuff without receiving compensation (Mhmm, I think there was a word for that.)?

Forbes places her at 340m in income this year, a chunk of which comes from her extremely successful 250mil Formation World Tour. So should she be a 240m slave, only being allowed to keep 100mil of her earned income or a modest 300m slave? How much of their hard earned income are the descendants of slaves allowed to keep in America before being cast back into servitude?

It's a serious question. I support liberal policies, but on the otherhand, the moment I'm paying more than 50% of my income in taxes, I'm going to be rallying for a huge change in direction in the party. I personally refuse to work for less than a majority of my income and frankly, it pisses me off when DU goes on a tizzy about a black performer or our president (President Obama) making exactly what the market will pay them for their services.

Anyone else watching the UK election coverage?

Idk what's going on, but it's very fascinating.

Don't get hung up on Comey telling Trump that he is not under investigation.

The real meat and potatoes is the continued insistence and pressure to "let Flynn go".

Af-Am Group: Do black voters not understand the dangers of Trump?

There are some on DU that seems to think we don't even though we voted against the guy (88%-8%) at a higher percentage than the WWC voters that we keep being asked to pander to. And this is in spite of rampant voter suppression and a multitude of reasons, centuries one might say, to question Democratic commitment to black causes.

I'm asking for a friend.

Maybe the 2020 Democratic Platform should read "We accept Bill Maher and his usage of House N*gger".

Then we will see if white liberals/Democrats can gin up enough "pc police hating" rust belters and "house N*gger" aficionados to offset the black and brown allies that are sick of this shit.

AF-am Group: Are people really going to bat for Bill Maher on DU?

The need to anti-Trump and embrace every anti-trumpian figures does not excuse "house n*gger".

Donald Trump Drastically Expands Global Gag Rule On Abortion

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-global-abortion-policy_us_5919bacae4b0031e737f382e?ncid=inblnkushpmg00000009

The gag rule, also known as the Mexico City policy, blocks international family planning assistance through the U.S. Agency for International Development to any groups or programs that provide or even mention abortions to women, or speak out about abortion laws in their own countries. It was last implemented by President George W. Bush and then was repealed by President Barack Obama.

Trump’s plan, called Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance, goes much further than that. The policy applies the anti-abortion rule to $8.8 billion in global health funding furnished by the State Department, USAID and the Department of Defense, instead of only $600 million in family planning funding. This means that a clinic receiving U.S. assistance for HIV or Zika relief will lose all that money if it so much as gives pregnant women information about safe abortion care.




~ In which the Trump administration allows the impoverished to die worldwide from unrelated illnesses due to the clinic/hospital even speaking about abortion.
