    Taking back the senate would dramatically cut down on the amount of damage Trump could do for the rest of his term.

    That is the ONE good thing about this nonsense... Trump got in through a perfect storm of apathy towards Clinton, people believing he didn't have a chance so why bother, and help from Russia and the FBI.... but it has motivated the blue base like crazy... while also making a large chunk of red apathetic and unwilling to support theirs.

    It's also getting YOUNG people to go "screw this noise, the adults are idiots and screwing us all."

    He's managed a lot of damage in a short time but mostly due to sheer incompetance, shortsightedness and greed they haven't accomplished much. (Supreme court sucks though.) Iit'll probably take a solid decade to fix the one year at least, but yes, if the house and senate can flip he'll be checked and largely powerless... as should have been the case already.

    Dean Heller's seat is pretty much a guaranteed flip thanks to Heller torching his own political career, Jeff Flake's seat is within possible reach, and god fucking dammit do I want Ted Cruz's melted wax ass thrown to the curb.

    So the race is too close to call yet, but the Dems are calling it anyway.

    You can say that again. My cousin is a solid Republican, but even he thinks this shit is crazy.

    For Saccone to win at this point would require a statistical improbability and, moreover, one that came because of counties that deliberately delayed counting their absentee ballots until well after everybody else. Lamb is doing the right thing by framing it as a win for him before the GOP can start screaming about it.
    Complicating things since 2009.

    1/ Students from more than 3,000 schools are walking out today to demand stricter gun regulation, including bans on assault weapons and expanded background checks. The National School Walkout started at 10 a.m. ET and will continue across the country at 10 a.m. in each time zone, sparked by last month's school shooting in Florida. The protests will last for 17 minutes to honor each of the 17 people killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School one month ago. Some school districts have said they will discipline students who participate in the walkouts. "Change never happens without backlash," Pope High School senior Kara Litwin said. "This is a movement, this is not simply a moment, and this is only the first step in our long process." (NPR / CNN / USA Today / New York Times)

    2/ A teacher who is also a reserve police officer injured three students after accidentally firing a gun inside a California classroom during a class devoted to public safety. Immediately before the gun fired, Dennis Alexander told the class that he wanted to make sure the gun wasn't loaded as he pointed it to the ceiling. "I think a lot of questions on parents' minds are, why a teacher would be pointing a loaded firearm at the ceiling in front of students," the district superintendent said. [Editor's note: Why would a teacher be bringing a loaded firearm to school?] (KSBW / Washington Post)

    3/ Democrat Conor Lamb is narrowly leading Republican Rick Saccone in a Pennsylvania special election that's still too close to call. With 100% of votes counted, Lamb has a 641-vote lead over Saccone in a district that Trump won by nearly 20 percentage points and was once considered an easy win for Republicans. The district will not exist in 2019, however, after the State Supreme Court ruled in January that Pennsylvania's House map was gerrymandered unlawfully. Whoever wins will be forced to run in a new district in November. (New York Times / The Hill / Vox / FiveThirtyEight)

    4/ Emails show Ben Carson and his wife selected the $31,000 furniture set for his Department of Housing and Urban Development dining room, undercutting claims by his spokesman that he had little or no involvement in the purchase. An August email, with the subject line "Secretary's dining room set needed," refers to "printouts of the furniture the Secretary and Mrs. Carson picked out." (CNN)

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/14/polit...set/index.html

    5/ The family of a killed DNC staffer has filed a lawsuit against Fox News, an investigative reporter, and one of the network's frequent guests over a story about Seth Rich and their allegations that he was involved in a conspiracy. (ABC News)

    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/famil...ry?id=53725795

    6/ Trey Gowdy contradicted his own Republican-led House Intelligence Committee's findings in the Russia probe. Gowdy said Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election was motivated in part "by a desire" to hurt Hillary Clinton's candidacy. The committee disagreed with the intelligence community's assessment "with respect to Putin's supposed preference for candidate Trump." (CNBC)

    poll/ 51% of Trump voters think his affair with Stormy Daniels is immoral and 75% think the allegations are not relevant to Trump's presidency. (HuffPost)

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry...b0e872b4bf7e00

    poll/ 41% of voters think Trump should meet with Kim Jong-Un without preconditions. 36% want Trump to meet with Kim only if North Korea makes concessions regarding its nuclear program beforehand. (Politico)

    Notables.

    Trump floated the idea of developing a "Space Force," a new branch of the military that would operate outside of earth's atmosphere. The Space Force apparently started as a joke, but Trump has since decided it's "a great idea," because "space is a war-fighting domain, just like the land, air, and sea." (CNBC)

    Melania Trump plans to meet with Amazon, Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Snap next week to discuss cyberbullying and ways to combat online harassment and promote Internet safety. (Washington Post)

    I'm also seeing a headline on CNN on a tv at my work that Sessions is recommending the Ex Deputy Chief of the FBI be fired days before his official retirement.

    Also the Republicans are trying very hard to fame Lambs win positively for themselves.

    Unless I'm mistaken, Space Force SPACE FORCE! would be a violation of the Outer Space Treaty since that agreement bans military maneuvers and installations outside of Earth's atmosphere.

    Also, does Trump think ISIS has some sort of Death Star supervillain lair or something?

    Just.....holy shit. Not even Bush was this dumb/suffering from dementia.

    In what cowardly way will Mueller be fired?

  19. #13259

    Default Re: American Politics thread: No Nazis Allowed

    Fire Sessions -> nominate Pruitt as new AG -> scumbag senate confirms Pruitt -> Pruitt pulls the trigger on Mueller

    ...and then hopefully...
    ->Mueller appeals his firing and/or releases his dead-man's switch and remotely activates a bunch of federal and state-level indictments
    I mean, he's definitely been laying out a whole Xanatos roulette for this eventuality since day 1, and he's a lot smarter than the cast of Stupid Watergate.


    Bright side is...no more Sessions? And a non-zero chance of somebody less awful than Pruitt for EPA?
