Texas Dem voters would rather see O’Rourke run for Cornyn’s Senate seat than 2020 presidency

Westlake Legal Group quYNmIIOnS30kP0WedfL524nlj6vEvdRIc4dCrM4FHI Texas Dem voters would rather see O'Rourke run for Cornyn's Senate seat than 2020 presidency r/politics

Obama also lost by over 10 points in 2012. You have to look at the political landscape back then. 2008, was an absolute blood bath year for the GOP coming off 8 years of Bush, two wars, and the worst recession since the Great Depression.

People talk away what a terrible VP candidate Sarah Palin was but I don’t think she was terrible. If she wasn’t on the ticket that year, evangelicals might have stayed home causing a huge landslide. People were furious at the GOP that year.

I wouldn’t count on the landscape being anything like that in 2022. If Joe Biden becomes president in 2020, it will become even more difficult to oust an incumbent senator in 2022.

r/Politics is looking for more moderators!

Hello /r/politics users!

As you may be aware, this subreddit has over 5,000,000 users. It is an incredibly active subreddit, and that is and has always been evidenced by a very large amount of user reports. Because it can be a challenge to address reports on comments and submissions in addition to everything else we have going on such as AMA’s, Modmail, Megathreads, etc, we are looking for new moderators

We have always had a link in our sidebar where users can apply to be a moderator, but the truth is we don’t get many applications at all, so we have decided to reach out to users on a larger scale.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for users that have a significant amount of time to contribute to moderating. This is a highly active subreddit with a large volume of reports, if you can only be available a few hours a week when things need doing, this is not the position for you.

We are looking for users who want to be here and will put in the time to learn the ropes. Especially in the beginning, it’s a large investment of time and patience to learn our rules and procedures. If you think you can’t commit to that, this is not the position for you.

Everyone has opinions, but we strive for impartiality, we will not tolerate biased decision-making. This is not your soapbox, all mods are expected to leave their opinions at the door. If you don’t think you can do that, this is not the position for you. We will be reviewing your work and anyone who does not adhere to this will have all permissions revoked immediately and will be removed from their position.

We expect a history of civil behavior in our subreddit. It’s imperative that we know if given the chance to engage with the subreddit and users in an official capacity you will do so in accordance with our rules.

Finally, while not required, programming experience is helpful.

This of course doesn’t represent the entirety of what we are looking for, but if you believe you fit the above criteria we will absolutely review your application! We will remove this sticky when we believe we have enough applicants to move forward with, and we thank you in advance for your applications.

Here is the link to our application.

Russian Troll Farm Spread More Misinformation Than Previously Known, Says Report

Westlake Legal Group 4y6F4M3ZLcwbBP8kVs_vyEOU_rqKBuPmuYiwNKn1ucM Russian Troll Farm Spread More Misinformation Than Previously Known, Says Report r/politics

Yep and, for those who didn’t read them, it should be noted that in the Mueller Indictments against these Troll Farms, post election they had actually moved into anti-Trump propaganda.

The goal is to create division in the public. In addition to pro-Trump and anti-Trump propaganda, they also ran Pro-Bernie campaigns, one of the largest BLM Facebook groups, LGTBQ rights groups etc

The “Not My President” and “March Against Trump” rallies were described by Mueller as being created and organized by one of the Russian firms.

You see an absolutely staggering amount of accounts in this subreddit with anti-trump trolling names.

Also, as they did in 2016 primary season, they will try to hurt the leading Democratic contender and divide the party by promoting someone else.

If you think it’s just pro-Trump messaging you need to be aware of, you really aren’t paying attention to what they are doing.

Chairman Nadler Rejects DOJ Demand that House Cancel Contempt Vote Before Resuming Negotiations

This. You call someone an idiot, then you are done as a potential helper of them.

Think, if you’re teaching long division to an angry student, and you get frustrated and demand “How can you not get this?” At that moment you are written off forever.

Contempt of the open mind: it’s the category of offense that breeds mistrust. Learn to recognize this ethical crime for what it is and how it harms humanity.

You promised something and didn’t deliver. You borrowed and didn’t pay back. You said “have no fear,” and then you attacked. You shared a secret.

You lied. This one is typically the worst offense, but American fascism is attempting to normalize it as the cost of winning.

These ethical crimes of contempt all cause the same defensive human response that makes us close off some neural pathway in response to the threat. It creates mental antibodies, forcing them involuntarily to activate.

Propagandists know all of these tactics and more. So should you.
