Obamas policy of "Stop or I will say Stop again" was exactly what they wanted.

At least Trump did ask Putin twice if Russia interfered in the elections before agreeing with him Russia had nothing to do with it and the intelligence community was wrong.

Toughest president on russia of all time!

Oh another interesting note, you know how the fellow progressives here like to lambaste "big Oil" and "big pharma", well those guys are small fish compared to the "Liberal" companies.

https://www.statista.com/statistics/263264/top-companies-in-the-world-by-market-value/

Top 13 with market value measured in billions of USD.
Code
Apple			961.3
Microsoft		946.5
Amazon.com		916.1
Alphabet		863.2 << This is Google
Berkshire Hathaway	516.4
Facebook		512
Alibaba			480.8
Tencent Holdings	472.1
JPMorgan Chase		368.5
Johnson & Johnson	366.2
Visa			351.9
ExxonMobil		343.4
ICBC			305.1


Notice who the top folks are, the same folks who control your search results, your email, and pretty much every automated aspect of our daily lives. Apple should take note because most people are now getting their "news" from aggregaters that collect news from multiple places and put them together on a single panel for the viewer to choose from. Apple's news app is programmed not to get news from conservative sites, effectively preventing viewers from even knowing that there is another side to an argument. Facebook and Google both do the same thing with Microsoft and Amazon being a little less obvious about what they do.

I can personally attest to Google doing it as my phones news feed is full of stuff from CNN, MSNBC, ABC, Vox, WaPo, Vanity, HuffPo and so forth even though I rarely ever visit those sites. The only articles from Fox are business relates ones, never political ones.

That is the Media Industrial Complex, the guys who created the Democrat Reality Distortion Bubble and pretty much control the opinions of anyone not willing to get their own information.

Dems don't have a fair process in my eyes for their party anyway. The super-delegates show that. If I was a dem I'd be pushing to get rid of that ***real quick.

They completely changed the super delegate rules after 2016.

They only don't get a vote in first round. If it's contested and goes to round 2 they fair game.

Quote:
Under the new rules for 2020, superdelegates will still be automatic delegates to the convention. But they will not have a vote on the first presidential ballot if the convention remains contested, which is a distinct possibility given the number of Democrats considering running. Superdelegates would get to vote on any subsequent rounds of voting.

Bloomberg's a liability and a foil. Democrats are often a little too good at circling the wagons, but they are absolutely willing to eat their own when they deem them a threat to the cause.

Could multiple candidates 'win' the Democratic caucuses? New rules make it possible.
Des Moines Register on MSN

Quote:
...
For decades, the winner of Iowa’s caucuses has been decided by a complicated system of state delegate equivalents, which operates kind of like the Electoral College. Unlike in the November presidential vote, though, Iowa's tally of popular support was never released.

But in 2020, the Iowa Democratic Party will publish two raw vote totals and the delegate numbers from caucus night.

So one candidate could win one or both of the delegate counts but lose the popular vote. That would open a new layer of complexity as media report the results, campaigns spin them and voters in later states try to make sense of them ...

Gona be fun...

There seems to be a growing belief that Michelle Obama is going to jump in the race and steal the show, even though she has made no clear indications of doing so. Does anyone here think that's a credible possibility? I'm not so sure, but crazier things have happened.

I said this several months ago. I also said I wouldn't be surprised if Oprah throws her name out there. The way it looks right now, all the current runners are complete campaign losers, so something will happen. Theres 0 chance we see Creepy Joe as a nominee...For the sake of our children

Trump lost a massive amount of business from the left when he ran, in financial terms running for and winning the presidency has been an insane loss of money for him and his family. Oprah would have similar impact on her massive wealth. She will never run.

Joe at his crazy old age is only running in the hope he can not get put in jail for his actions in Ukraine. When he was investigated for his wrong doing (that he stated he did on tv no less) the dems stated you can't investigate him now, he is running! That's like stealing a car and then when the cops show up you say you can't arrest me, I'm playing father christmas for the poor unfortunate sick kids! Are you evil or something, think of the children!

Also I found this hilarious (although almost no media will cover it), Bernie saying he wants to ban vaping. Does he not know who supports him? All the hipsters would riot.

Tom Steyer just got his two best polls of the cycle
CNN

TLDR: Money CAN buy you love.

Quote:
New Fox News polls in the third and fourth states of the primary season, Nevada and South Carolina, have Steyer jumping into the double digits. In doing so, Steyer has qualified for next week's CNN/Des Moines Register debate.

Steyer scored an impressive 15% in South Carolina. That's right next Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' 14% and only behind former Vice President Joe Biden's 36%.

In Nevada, it's more of the same. He hit 12%, which is tied for third with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Steyer's behind Biden (23%) and Sanders (17%)....

I should say that it's not shocking that his best polling has come from Nevada and South Carolina.

Steyer is spending a ton of money on advertisements in the two states. He's put about $11 million into television ads in Nevada and about $15 million into South Carolina, according to CMAG.

To give you an idea of how much money that is, consider that he's spent more on television ads in South Carolina than nearly every other candidate has spent on television ads in every state combined....

Maybe the dumbest thing here is that you can't even work out when I'm serious or not.

But I'm enjoying the irony of this so please keep being puzzled.

I love how the basket of deplorables (Dannyl, Saevel, Ravael) think I am left wing just because I bait them with anti-Trump posts while being ignorant that I have also baited Vic and Chanti in other threads. It just goes to show how psychotic and myopic these extremists are.

I'm not complaining, I think it's funny. Even more funny is they will still fall for the bait again despite pointing out the irony of them falling for it because they only read what offends them.
