Ohio Barbarian started the topic Electoral Map Snapshot, 7/2/2020, with rating changes in the forum President 6 hours ago
The odds just keep mounting against Donald Trump. I base these on recent polls and the Real Clear Politics average, with trends emphasized. This map does not take election fraud or voter suppression into account. I’ll try that in the weeks before the election.
First, a list of the states that have shifted in the last two weeks, from east to…[Read more]

@jimlane See my post in Latest Breaking News. Trump didn’t lie about not being informed because he wasn’t briefed on something that neither the NSA or Department of Defense believe happened.
You Blue Team cheerleaders are being played by the CIA. If I were you, I’d be very embarrassed.
And yeah, if you can’t unequivocally say you want to pull…[Read more]
Ohio Barbarian replied to the topic NSA Dissents From Other Agencies Over Russian Bounty Intel in the forum Latest Breaking News 8 hours ago
Other sources, specifically Saajar Enjeti and Ryan Grim on Hill Rising, say that the CIA’s “evidence” came from HUMINT, or “human intelligence,” based on Afghans taken prisoner and on reports from the Afghan government. The prisoner bit is problematic given the CIA’s record on torture. As for the Afghan government, if there’s anyone who has…[Read more]

(Antiwar.com) The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that the National Security Agency “strongly dissented from other intelligence agencies’ assessment that Russia paid bounties for the killing of US soldiers in Afghanistan.”
The Journal cites “people familiar with the matter” and does not give much detail, but the story is noteworthy…[Read more]

They’ve all been delayed to September 19th. There are a couple in neighboring counties, but not too much. Other than that, it’s just the usual idiots trying to blow themselves up in their back yards.
I’m not concerned about fires. After living in Texas, California, and Colorado, I’ve learned people here have no clue what wildfires even are. It’s…[Read more]

If the Americans hadn’t invaded Afghanistan, none of them would have been killed with Russian weapons by the Taliban.
Isn’t symmetry wonderful?

Just wait for tens of millions to start being evicted over the next couple of months. Congress isn’t even contemplating doing anything to stop it. The only way they will is if they fear whatever 21st Century version of the guillotine our younger generations come up with.

@jimlane I never said Trump was fit to be President. I have never thought he was fit to be President. I don’t think Biden is fit to be President, either, for he is in obvious cognitive decline. The mean old fool probably has Alzheimer’s and it’s actually cruel of the Democrats to run him. I almost feel sorry for him, for he reminds me of my own…[Read more]

@jimlane The point is that American troops are still in Afghanistan. The point is that Obama ran for office in 2008 with a promise to get out of Iraq altogether and to start drawing down troops so we could eventually get out of Afghanistan. The point is that Donald Trump has so far failed to withdraw American forces from both Afghanistan and Iraq…[Read more]

What’s a no-brainer is that Cenk is a millionaire who can afford to take the long view and endorse incremental approaches. What’s a no-brainer for me is that Elizabeth Warren is an opportunistic sssssnake of a politician whose primary objective is advancing her own status and power. What’s a no-brainer for Biden’s team is that their donors such as…[Read more]

They shouldn’t be. Withdraw from the Graveyard of Empires now!
That said, there’s one other point that is never mentioned by those attacking Trump on this relatively insignificant allegation by the usual unnamed intelligence sources, with zero evidence, which is the timing of the leak to Pravda-on-the-Hudson. These same intelligence sources knew…[Read more]

And neuter progressive politicians, turning them into simpering lapdogs for the likes of Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton. The Democratic Party is too corrupt and too entrenched. In fact, only nonelectoral means will save We The People in the not-so-long run. The only way the oligarchs will give up anything is if they are terrified of the…[Read more]
