Patrick M. Shanahan Withdraws as Defense Secretary Nominee

Westlake Legal Group RCw4qB5LqVGzvnXBChHBhhdGdBYnio6XqGfQE5erG7k Patrick M. Shanahan Withdraws as Defense Secretary Nominee r/politics

Trump has a rubber stamp Senate right now. They would confirm a bag of potato chips if Trump nominated it.

Trump is lazy. When he actually does get around to nominating someone, they don’t want the job. No one wants Trump for a boss.

And because he’s so fucking lazy, he just likes to announce his nominations publicly before checking with the nominee, he keeps getting embarrassed when they tell him no, or they end up having terrible things in their background.

Trump Has Brilliantly Cornered Himself Where He’s Now Demanding Iran Abide by a Deal He Already Reneged On

You let one ant stand up to us, and they all might stand up! Those “puny little ants” outnumber us a hundred to one. And if they ever figure that out… THERE GOES OUR WAY OF LIFE! It’s not about food. It’s about keeping those ants in line. THAT’S WHY WE’RE GOING BACK! Does anyone else wanna stay?  

Let this be a lesson to all you ants: ideas are very dangerous things. You are mindless, soil-shoving losers put on this earth to serve us!  

You’re wrong…Hopper. Ants are not meant to serve grasshoppers. I’ve seen these ants do great things, and year after year, they somehow manage to pick enough food for themselves and you! So-so who’s the weaker species?! Ants don’t serve grasshoppers! It’s you who need us! We’re a lot stronger than you say we are. And you know it, don’t you?

Trump’s “no collusion” lie is finally falling apart — but will Americans actually notice?

Westlake Legal Group krq62CxOL5sY9CjGQyqs5JoPoX2-1uBzof4galTgN14 Trump's "no collusion" lie is finally falling apart — but will Americans actually notice? r/politics

Precisely. Mueller only concluded that there was not a prosecutable offense. Most people read and interpreted the report as an analysis of the possibility of conspiracy, which it is explicitly not. The difference in these interpretations is massive! Mueller’s rigid factual discussion in terms of prosecution, is not at all a “layman’s discussion” of whether Trump’s campaigned cooperated with Russians.

 

Take two simple points:

  • The IRA/Russian Government funded social media attacks in important battleground states

  • Manafort handed Deripaska internal Trump Campaign polling data. Deripaska is not an official representative of the Russian government, and Mueller could not factually conclude what Deripaska did with that data.

Nonetheless, it is immediately obvious from an analytic perspective that the survey data was used to augment targeting of IRA efforts, that’s virtually certain. But it can’t be proved in a US court. And so Mueller’s report does not “conclude” the obvious. Other examples are the omission of the Alfa Bank server communication with Spectrum Health. The best cyber experts in the world are certain that the communication was fishy, and intentional, but cannot prove exactly what it’s purpose is, and therefore the Mueller report cannot address that event in a manner related to prosecuting a crime.

 

There absolutely was attempts and likely success at cooperation with Russians, but they successfully disguised these efforts well enough to prevent prosecution by the DoJ at this time.

‘You’re not good at this argument thing’: Jon Stewart fires back at Mitch McConnell for downplaying his impassioned efforts to help 9/11 victims

Westlake Legal Group 6qYGNHj73FKHaPk2xnOq7Jsl2hzBQLUY4GqxxVlQ1ts 'You're not good at this argument thing': Jon Stewart fires back at Mitch McConnell for downplaying his impassioned efforts to help 9/11 victims r/politics

The bridge to Grand Isle in Louisiana is privately (and poorly) administered and charges a toll. About ten years ago I needed to cross, but at the time it was completely unmanned and automated, and for whatever reason, you couldn’t pay at the bridge. If you didn’t have a prepaid pass, you were supposed to stop at this little kiosk about a mile down the road, enter your license plate number, and pay. Well, I tried… It was 10 PM and the door was locked.

So I said, “Fuck it” and crossed without paying.

For seven years, I received no ticket and heard nothing about that night. Then, one day, out of the blue, I get a bill for $100.

It turns out that their incompetent management had resulted in vast numbers of people skipping the toll and millions of dollars in losses, so they had sent out something like 30,000 tickets all at once in the hopes of scaring people into paying.

I ignored it and haven’t heard anything further. Presumably, they’ll try to take me to court or something in another four years.

President Trump Calls Fox News ‘Fake News’ for Citing Unfavorable Poll Numbers

Westlake Legal Group bbsM7-C5YYk7qpbVlrsTMMS1bhdwtAbb6gs7VAsK8lQ President Trump Calls Fox News ‘Fake News’ for Citing Unfavorable Poll Numbers r/politics

This. Pisses me off to no end that for people who don’t know how to find a reliable news source often fall into just watching what’s easiest to get their hands on, which is often some actual fake news from Facebook or OANN, who is happy to supply their propaganda free of charge.

Meanwhile, places like the NYT won’t even let people read their articles without paying a subscription fee. “Democracy Dies in Darkness” is their motto, to which I’ll add “and if you don’t cough up some money, you’re going to be in the Dark”. Or watching OANN for free and getting brainwashed.

Edit: that’d actually The Washington Post’s motto, but NYT does the same shit.

Edit 2: I get that they need to make money to operate and I may not really have a good valid argument here.. but that motto + paywall just bugs me.

The “What happened in your state last week?” Megathread, Week 24

Welcome to the ‘What happened in your state last week’ thread, where you can post any local political news stories that you find important in the comments. This is a weekly thread posted every Monday, in order to facilitate more discussion on local issues on /r/politics. Since this is intended to be a thread about local politics, top-level comments that are exclusively about national issues will not be allowed. When commenting, please include the state you’re living in, and don’t forget to link sources. Also, please actually describe what happened. “I live in X, you know what happened” isn’t helpful to users and will be removed.

If someone from your state made a news round-up that you think is insufficient, feel free to comment to that round-up with further news stories. Enjoy discussion, and review our civility guidelines before engaging with others.
