Clinton is deeply flawed and bad for the nation, but the real threat she poses is her loseability. If she or anyone as tainted as her gets the nom, we are schtupped up the tuchus

It is a grave problem this though. Parliamentary politics right now cannot move out of this "supporting the least bad" logic. You can argue that's all it ever was, but at least during the cynical 90s we could say "ok so nobody is really satisfied, but at least things are kind of stable and you have to be realistic and go with the possible" and so on.

But right now this is a serious hindrance, because we know something has to be different, but people are still afraid to take chances, so no matter the dissatisfaction, in the end it becomes a vote for the same old. They are encouraged, of course, by the established parties, who play all sorts of scare games and faux-unity spiels of "We have to defend against the far right". Recently leading the French, in an "anything-but-Le-Pen" panic, to vote in the triumphantly and viciously anti-worker Macron.

It's grim.

Hahaha this is too good.


On top of being a dumb agenda, this is nowhere close to true.


He's tried, though. He's imposed a 30% tariff on solar panels which will cost thousands of American jobs in the solar panel installation industry. And he has attempted to give billions of dollars of subsidies to the coal industry, but unfortunately the (Republican-controlled, no less) Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said this plan was too far off into fucking la-la land for them to support it. Oh well, at least the coal miners can dump their waste directly into your streams and rivers again, so that's convenient for them.

But he really is trying. He really is doing everything in his power to cripple renewable energy and to give as much support and money to the coal industry as possible. #MAGA

To be more specific, he wanted to give an extra ten billion a year in subsidies (on top of the twenty billion in subsidies the US government already pays to fossil fuel companies every year) to prop up unprofitable coal-fired power plants that are otherwise due to close, a plan that was described as "ludicrous" and "perverse".

I'm not saying it's surprising exactly, but it is quite a thing to see the Republican party's willingness to throw the entire FBI and Justice Department under a bus just to protect Donald's crimes from being exposed. Not to mention their complete indifference to Russia infiltrating the US government at the highest level.

I was a little surprised that after literally decades of anti-Russia propaganda and strong anti-Russia sentiment, Donald can just turn up and say "no, we love Russia, we actually hate all our allies", and Republican voters go from hating Russia to loving Russia as easy as flicking a switch.

Weird thing... being not in the US having to deal with the lunatics running the show it feels like the US is on pause. You can tell Merkel etc are just waiting for him to leave.

As far as international relations goes, the US effectively doesn't have an executive branch at the moment. You can't have a meeting or a summit with Trump, what's the point? You may as well have a meeting with an Oval Office pot plant. There's not going to be any coordinated strategy and planning going on between the US and its erstwhile western allies. All the planning going on now involves working around the US.

International organisations are now by passing the US Federal government altogether and working with governors and mayors. Merkel would be better off talking to Jerry Brown than wasting her time at the White House. It was like when Rex Tillerson came to New Zealand last year and reporters asked what our Government hoped to get out of the meeting and they just shrugged and said "nothing".

The damage is likely to be long-lasting; nobody is going to make the mistake of treating the US as politically stable ally any more.

Going back to my previous statement about how the GOP is attempting to throw the FBI and Justice Dept under a bus to stop them from exposing the president's crimes. Just the fact that I can say that crazy sentence, and it's true, and it's happening right now, wow.

Highest ratings ever. Greatest story arc in the history of the WWE.

Just confirming again what everybody already sort-of knew: Fake news sharing in US is a rightwing thing, says study

Trump supporters consume more "junk news" (based on breaching at least three of five quality standards including “professionalism”, “bias” and “credibility”) and share more junk news on social media than all other groups combined. They live in a bubble of misinformation.

This is not just a problem for the US, but a potentially serious issue for any democracy. It's not surprising that Russia considers undermining western countries through social media trolling to be money well spent.

So, Trump has issued his new priorities for NASA: privatise the ISS, cut funds for education, astrophysics and Earth science, and pour resources into building a moon base and flying Jetsons cars.

This is, um, not a joke. And he's in charge.

^profit-driven society, the american dream gone wrong, manifesting its destiny outward toward space

this country needs a hero

what i mean is, ofcourse thata the kinda decisions this businessman is making, its the corporation being allowed in politics, we can only hope to lessen the blows until someone real is in office again. for the first time in american history this feels 100% undiplomatic political chief... we've sunk same as the titanic, we're just learning the extent to what that means before there's hope for replacement.

i defy obama for not pulling martial rank in submitting his presidency to an unstable successor.

Well he's certainly got a loyal attorney. Paid a porn star $130,000 in hush money from his own pocket? Out of the goodness of his own heart. Didn't even tell Donald about it. And there wasn't even anything to hush up, because nothing happened. He just, y'know, paid a porn star $130,000 of his own money for no reason, like any good lawyer would.

This is a completely credible description of how attorney-client relationships work. I know I'm always telling my lawyer "man, stop spending your money on me. I'm supposed to be paying you, ya knucklehead! You're so generous, this law firm must run at a loss I tell ya!"

Well, it shut her up until after the election. And now comes the fun part, arguing whether paying off porn stars is considered undeclared campaign financing.

Hey hey, apparently Trump's completely mind-bogglingly insane idea to arm teachers is going down great! Latest Rasmussen poll now has him with over 50% approval, congratulations America.
