Yep Clinton was acquitted too but all people ever remember is “the affair he had that got him impeached”; so Tom, we will all remember that Trump was impeached for abusing his office to betray his oath to country for his personal agenda to smear a guy he doesn’t like and rig a presidential election.
“Without impeaching key witnesses”? Um, yeah the House Dems did subpoenaed key witnesses and those individuals under the instructions of Trump and his WH staff ignored all those subpoenas. Way to ‘Trump-wash’ events and facts.
Yep. Kaep is criticizing American Imperialism and the use of the military to execute this foreign policy against predominantly Black and Brown countries around the world. Is he wrong? The US was behind the coup of a Democratic government of Iran in 1953 cause of American Imperialism to control their oil. Hawaii, Guam, Philippines, the Caribbean, and Pacific Islands have all been targets of American Imperialism during the 19th and 20th centuries. We didn’t liberate Iraq and Afghanistan so they can establish a government in their own cultural image but cause we wanted to impose a Western style democracy tied to the US. Iran has always been against western imperialism especially after what the American government did to them and Soleimani led that effort militarily. So Kaep is right; the use of drones in the Middle East that has killed hundreds of Black and Brown people has been deemed by the victims American as terrorism and indiscriminate targeting. That was all Kaep was implicating with his tweets.
HRC didn’t encourage her voters to support Obama in 2008 nor in 2012; thus, giving us the PUMA moniker for her supporters: Party Unity My Ass! Bernie begrudgingly supported her at 35+ rallies to include swing states she chose not to visit. Lets keep it real. She’s as narcissistic as Donald Trump: “me, me, me. it’s everyone else’s fault.” She’ll probably encourage and endorse Bloomberg to run as a 3rd party Independent.
Deficit is out of control because of failure to curtail unnecessary defense spending and tax cuts to corporations and wealthy that has drastically reduced federal income. Governments operate on taxation and budgets. Businesses fail that spend more than their revenue. Again Trump bankrupt a casino of all things. Bernie and Warren both been consistent with generating revenue to pay for social programs by reimplementing the taxation that helped rebuild post-WW and post-stock market crash America and simultaneously cut back on overseas defense spending.
Yes. US using covert operations led to the Iranian led coup. It wasn’t like Iraq where the US military went into the country and overthrew the government.
The Progressives are unified. Didn’t you see Warren and Sanders arm in arm marching on MLK Jr. holiday? Now if only the other Liberal Democrats can get on board and unify with the Progressives. Or they can be like HRC and question whether Dems should support Sanders if he somehow miraculously wins the nomination.
Now I’m convinced you don’t see my point. I’m not justifying Trump’s action. The president should not attack a state actor or sovereign nation without the approval of Congress; something Trump didn’t have. The AUMF was only for engaging non-state actors, ISIS, in Iraq and both Bush, Obama, and Trump has used the AUMF to justify going after other non-state actors in other countries. I have no problem with the war on terror organizations. I do have a problem with directed military action against Syrian and Iranian government targets without Congressional approval. So yeah you too should be concerned if Iran targets our military general officers leaders when traveling through other countries because they labeled our military a terror organization and use the same “imminent threat” argument the Trump Admin used.
Here is the specific talking point:“I like Elizabeth Warren. In fact, she’s my second choice! But here’s my concern about her. The people who support her are highly-educated, more affluent people who are going to show up and vote Democratic no matter what. She’s bringing no new bases into the Democratic Party. We need to turn out disaffected working -class voters if we’re going to defeat Trump.”The polling statistics back up this statement that much of Warren’s support are from the educated, upper middle class and higher elements of the Democrat voters. It’s very similar to HRC. The campaign also had talking points on Buttigieg (not winning over young people and African Americans) and Biden (and they are far more critical of his weaknesses compared to others). So lets keep it real. This is a primary where candidates are comparing strengths and weaknesses and nothing in that talking point is a lie or exaggerated. Unlike the “He said a woman can’t win.” is can be viewed as vague, out of context, and allowing the media to exaggerate and speculate if it was sexist or objective.So yes I am suspect of the timing and manner how the Warren campaign leaked this single statement without the full context of the private conversation a year later conveniently before Iowa voting.
Republicans and Conservatives in general will never acknowledge the facts that we have criminal activity by individuals in the White House and in Congress. It’s all about 2016 with them instead of wanting to ensure the 2020 election is fair with no foreign intervention or illegal activities by either campaigns.
