Rashida Tlaib Endorses Bernie Sanders For President

Westlake Legal Group nxYdyqm7Ausx-3fPQ-FosA5UGOfhxE3Keocv0uaeglw Rashida Tlaib Endorses Bernie Sanders For President r/politics

That’s why I’m voting for Bernie again.

This needs to be repeated more often.

We all know Bernie has a base, of course, and the press loves to criticize him for this and draw comparisons to Trump. But it’s a reflection not of a cult of personality like Trump, but a resounding endorsement of the entire movement. As you said, we’re not just voting for Bernie. We’re voting for the whole movement. The entire ethos of it. And Bernie is without a doubt the best representation of it. Warren nearly drew me in for a while and I’d still be happy to vote for her if she does win, but Bernie is my guy. He’s fighting for us, with us.

That’s why I’m voting for Bernie again.

Pelosi says Trump Notified Russians of Baghdadi’s apparent death before telling Congressional Leaders

Meanwhile Obama didn’t alert Pakistan about the raid to kill OBL because it could have comprised the mission. This is a much bigger issue than it suggests on the surface. It puts our troops into harms way by allowing Russian intelligence insight into our special operations. A geopolitical foe knows what we are about to do and increases the risk this information gets leaked.

It is just batshit insane that this Cheeto dusted traitor continues, time and time again, to behave like he is getting permission from Papa Putin. Just fucking sick.

Edit: as code_archeologist points out below “Actually it is even worse than that.

Since the Russian military was on the ground with prior knowledge of the operation, it gave them the opportunity to test their systems and observe our special forces in action directly. So now they have more intelligence into the methods and capabilities of our most elite troops and the technology that they use.

This is a fucking disaster.”

Discussion Thread: President Trump expected to announce results of Special Ops raid against ISIS leadership

Im not watching but let me guess:

“This great thing, which was better than anyone’s elses’ great thing, happened because of me, everyone was great but I was in control of the thing, we did it, we know we did it really good, and we know its definitely done, 100%, and that the thing I did was the biggest, best thing. Now I don’t want to make any threats but here’s a threat to everyone, a huge, glimmering, shining threat. Nuclear bombs will be really destructive on Turkey’s economy. The Kurds are our great friends, we have been very tough on Russia and we’ve helped Russia tremendously. This has been a great victory for us and its because of me.”

The Revolution Isn’t Being Televised – Media uninterested in protest movements around the world

Is there a website that shows nothing but protests, live streams, etc.? I could imagine something like windy.com, but for people demonstrating. It could also include commentary, but in the form of text, so that the footage is nothing but protests and demonstrations, categorized by country and region, and perhaps including descriptions of the reasons why people took yo the streets.

Want to see what’s happening in Russia? Go to that channel and watch up to the minute footage. Chile? Brazil? Hong Kong? Chicago? Sacramento?

Decentralized, unfiltered. Like an aggregator for nothing but people in action.

Edit: something like this: https://www.lightningmaps.org/#

Or this:

https://ucanr.edu/sites/fire/Wildfire_Health_-_Safety/Current/

But each dot is active social unrest. Click on the dot and get live streams and videos with links to commentary. I wish I had the time and knew how to code that well.

Trump administration has acquired only 16% of land needed for border wall in Texas. President’s notorious campaign pledge is thrown into further doubt as private landowners prove less than obliging.

Westlake Legal Group BPtwyFQ21b6TIRn5DgPSvvC92xgrcPGQ65uFPrciN8c Trump administration has acquired only 16% of land needed for border wall in Texas. President's notorious campaign pledge is thrown into further doubt as private landowners prove less than obliging. r/politics

We used to live in a trailer in east side Las Vegas. My grandma owned the lot/trailer. A bunch of factories would come by and offer her $25,000 for it. She’d say hell no.

Finally some official came in and demanded she better move and he cut her a check for $50,000 saying that everybody else accepted to clear the land; she said hell no and told him where he could put the check.

We were all like WTF why isn’t she accepting the money, but it turns out she was just super petty against being forced to move. When she died my grandpa sold it for $68,000 so I guess the places were lowballing too

WSJ: Sondland told the House that Trump’s Ukraine pressure was a quid pro quo

Westlake Legal Group uprYfdoCrT6WQUwSn70NHLIi4Y0D2DxE9VokTsCM06E WSJ: Sondland told the House that Trump's Ukraine pressure was a quid pro quo r/politics

From the WSJ article:

A top U.S. diplomat told House committees last week that efforts by President Trump and his allies to press Kyiv to open investigations in exchange for a White House meeting with Ukraine’s president amounted to a quid pro quo, his lawyer said.

Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, told House committees that he believed Ukraine agreeing to open investigations into Burisma Group—a gas company where Democrat Joe Biden’s son once served on the board—and into alleged 2016 election interference was a condition for a White House meeting between Mr. Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Mr. Sondland’s lawyer Robert Luskin said.

Mr. Trump has denied that his decision to hold up aid was related to his push for investigations, repeatedly declaring there was “no quid pro quo.” Asked by a lawmaker whether that arrangement was a quid pro quo, Mr. Sondland cautioned that he wasn’t a lawyer but said he believed the answer was yes, Mr. Luskin said.

Mr. Sondland was testifying as part of the impeachment inquiry, which is examining efforts by Mr. Trump and his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, to push Ukraine to undertake investigations related to the Biden family and the 2016 campaign. Democrats believe the president abused the power of his office to press a foreign leader to open investigations that could benefit him politically. Mr. Trump has defended his dealings with Ukraine and decried the investigation as a “hoax.”

Mr. Sondland’s testimony has come under fresh scrutiny since the deposition earlier this week of Bill Taylor, the acting U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. Mr. Taylor’s testimony focused in part on a separate issue, telling House committees that Mr. Trump made nearly $400 million in aid contingent on the Ukrainian president investigating Mr. Biden and alleged Ukrainian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. Mr. Taylor didn’t use the term “quid pro quo” but said he understood the aid to be “conditioned” on the investigations.

If you think AOC is being praised too much for challenging Mark Zuckerberg, you’re right: The bar has been set low by congress, and members of ‘The Squad’ are now being lauded just for doing their jobs

Westlake Legal Group TwCHOiTPwMBqDMhx6wsqOLJHcvWsb2_fhjpVCi-mdvA If you think AOC is being praised too much for challenging Mark Zuckerberg, you're right: The bar has been set low by congress, and members of 'The Squad' are now being lauded just for doing their jobs r/politics

The effect of money in politics has different outcomes on the two parties. Because the Republicans are naturally aligned with lower taxes and deregulation, the money incentivizes them to be aggressive.

On the democratic side, the money incentives politicians to be compliant.

It’s no accident that AOC, the Squad, and the Justice Democrats are the ones that fight the hardest. They don’t have to worry about biting the hand that feeds, because there isn’t one other than the voters.
