There’s A Madman In The White House; Trump’s ‘Narcissistic Rage’ Led Him to Assassinate Suleimani

Westlake Legal Group AgZTZ2arwbcQmCUE6_lBnp2-aAHC6S7O03NPWWqC1wU There’s A Madman In The White House; Trump’s ‘Narcissistic Rage’ Led Him to Assassinate Suleimani r/politics

Their interest goes beyond owning the libs; that’s an added bonus and, respectfully, claiming that’s the depth of it serves only to mask their real end game: their absolute paramount interest is preserving their position and power. Thus “party over country.” Accomplishing this allows them to execute on their number two priority…

Lining their own pockets and that of their cronies.

Notice how everything Trump says circles back to money? Every policy speech (if you can call his ramblings “speeches”), every proclamation, every announcement, every childish taunt of his critics and U.S. rivals and “enemies” circles back to money. He has even called himself “Tariff man.”

Likewise, more and more, his sycophantic supporters are defending everything he does in terms of dollars.

Their priorities are in this exact order because priority one begets priority two.

Their gerrymandering, voter suppression, election fraud and court packing have all been exposed and yet they continue unabated because they have found the formula: it takes convincing only 30% of the population to seize control of a state or the country. It’s not how many, but where. Our elections have been thrown backwards 200 years where they are decided by land, not people.

These efforts have been successful to the point where they no longer feel they need to even bother pretending otherwise. Their brazen corruption is now on full display; they are absolutely shameless and will go to any length to preserve and add to their power and money.

And they are convinced there is nothing you can do about it.

Westlake Legal Group JE5v1BJsIlc2DiVs1rwqi6CLE49u9lcH1SVOoMRTF3k Megathread: Iran launches missiles at US airbase in Iraq r/politics

Multiple reports have confirmed that Iran has fired ‘tens’ of missiles at US forces housed inside bases within Iraq. The White House is aware of the attack and has not yet formally responded. Iranian state TV says the attack is a retaliation after the country’s top commander Qasem Soleimani was killed in a drone strike in Baghdad. The events are still developing.

Against all odds, it looks like Bernie Sanders might be the Democratic nominee after all

Westlake Legal Group 9K3B6DhQDApxqOj7eoOc4MuH0i_R-RABJDUr-CotgfQ Against all odds, it looks like Bernie Sanders might be the Democratic nominee after all r/politics

Was Bernie a likely nominee from the beginning?

In 2016, Bernie’s supporters saw him winning 46% of the vote and thought, “He was so close; next time he’ll do a little bit better and win!”

Others saw Sanders stuck at 18% in 2020 national polls, and just did some quick arithmetic:

46%-18%=28%

“I guess 28% of Democratic primary voters hate Hillary so much that they would vote for Sanders in a head-to-head match-up, even though he would never be their first choice.” The 2020 field has many not-Hillary-candidates to choose from so Sanders is in a weaker position than he was in 2016.


To be fair, they could both be right…sorta.

After a few early state contests, presidential primaries tend to become two-person races. Before Iowa votes, it is a wide-open field.

Right now, Sanders could be poised to win New Hampshire (and therefore become one of the two people we argue about until the convention) and simultaneously struggle to get the support of more than 75% of the primary voters.


…but also, a ton of this is based on the premise that ‘Biden couldn’t possibly win the nomination’ even though he is polling in the lead…but that is the same thing that people said about Trump during the 2016 primary. We should probably believe the polls.

Edit: Made it clear that the polls in the last paragraph reference primary polls, not general election polls.

Updates to the r/Politics Rules

Articles must be published within the last two weeks (decreased from one month)

Old content is often misleading because the political landscape changes rapidly. We therefore require all submissions in r/politics to be published within the last two weeks. For example, if the date is January 29 and the article submitted was written before January 15, then the submission is out of date.

No Copy-Pasted Articles Rule

Submissions which are entirely a copy-paste of the original reporting, or that add one paragraph or less with a “read more at” link to the original content, are not permitted. Articles or videos that add another take on a subject, or include different verbiage or context, are otherwise allowed.

The full r/politics rules can be viewed here.
