Now that the Dems have the house they should do everything they can to hammer the GOP on voter suppression:
>The House can hold hearings on voter suppression. They can start immediately. They can subpoena every fucking Republican secretary of state who can reasonably be judged to have assisted in the suppression of minority voters. They can subpoena law enforcement officials. They can subpoena campaign staffers. They can subpoena poll workers. They can call in all types of political science professors and statisticians and sociologists to explain in detail what is happening. They can invite Michelle Alexander to read the entirety of The New Jim Crow into the Congressional record. They can draw attention. They can make noise. They should, and they must. The more you let the overt oppression slide, the more it will be seen as the standard playbook for the next election.
They won't, because Pelosi is controlled opposition whose job is take it easy on the GOP. But they should.

Brett Kavanaugh served on the DC Court of Appeals with, among others, Elena Kagan, one of Obama's two Supreme Court nominees. Despite Trump appointing one justice and Obama the other, they actually saw eye to eye on rulings 93% of the time, so it's no wonder Chuck and company were happy to see Brett get in.

Trump calls Macron's comments on building a European army to defend against U.S. 'insulting' by Isabella Wemblehall - Fri, 09 Nov 2018 18:41:55 EST ID:M/Ws53KS No.172533 Report Reply Quick Reply

President Donald Trump on Friday slammed Emmanuel Macron after the French president suggested earlier this week that Europe needs to build a “real European army” to protect itself from Russia, China and the United States.

“President Macron of France has just suggested that Europe build its own military in order to protect itself from the U.S., China and Russia,” Trump tweeted shortly after landing in Paris to attend a ceremony commemorating 100 years since the end of World War I.

It's good here I guess. Politics are usually boring as it should be, and while we have some slimeballs and toxic discussions most of the time the sides compromise or at least talk to one another. We're left-leaning but that doesn't necessarily mean like 'American leftie'. Language is hard to pronounce but easy to learn to write when you know English or another Germanic language.

Only issue is that it can be very difficult to get residence permit if you're not seeking asylum.

The UK has been dead since 1979, the right wing has not stopped working on finishing the job since. Brexit is just another blow in a long succession of crushing blows to Britain. Brexit alone is going to be a big hit, except it won't be because it's clearly going to be a soft brexit so it'll probably just end up being a bit worse. The hard brexiteers is a minority, of "leave" it was pretty much an even split for soft and hard brexit so that means you've got 70% of the nation opposed to a few fuckwits and race to the bottom peddlers of inferior goods (like JD Weatherspoons) whose owners already live elsewhere.

The people supposed to make the case for "remain" put a weak case the "leavers" outright lied then gaslighted the country and still won so I guess they deserve it. And the ones who bought it hardest are the ones who'll get fucked the hardest.

David Davis (the former one) apparently required legal advice to tell him that he could not sue the EU in its own court for stating the obvious*. The entire Brexit campaign deliberately didn't have a plan because they wouldn't have been able to agree on one. Obviously no one bothered to look up how things work which is why the same Davis thought he could do a trade deal with Germany (which is literally Trump-level stupid (though maybe he didn't have to be told no 10x?))

*That the UK would be a third country upon leaving the EU

pic related. Davis is the one who apparently thinks it's hilarious that the EU-side came prepared.

That next crash is coming any day now:
>Just months after Republicans and Democrats joined hands to gut key Wall Street safeguards, President Donald Trump's Federal Reserve began doing its part to loosen restrictions on massive American banks on Wednesday by voting to approve a plan that critics condemned as a dangerous step toward yet another financial crisis.

>"Today's actions by the Fed are as unjustified as they are unwise," Dennis Kelleher, president and CEO of Better Markets, said in a statement. "Deregulating some of the largest banks in the country will make the financial system less safe, less stable, and less protected from another crash."

>Noting that the nation's largest banks have been raking in record profits since the passage of the Republican tax plan last year, Kelleher argued that the Fed is "needlessly gambling with taxpayers' money."

>Under the Fed's plan—which the Wall Street Journal called "one of the most significant rollbacks of bank regulations since Trump took office"—banks that have between $250 billion to $700 billion in assets would face far less stringent regulations than even the GOP-controlled Congress backed in March.

>Additionally, as CNN reports, "institutions that have assets between $100 billion and $250 billion will no longer have meet two liquidity buffers, meaning they won't have to hold assets they can sell quickly for cash, and would only be subject to the Fed's stress test exercise every two years."

>"Banks with $250 billion in assets are systemically significant," Bartlett Naylor, financial policy advocate with Public Citizen's Congress Watch Division, noted in a statement. "Collectively, they control a quarter of all the industry's assets. Failure by several of these large, regional firms would spark economic mayhem, especially in America's heartland where most of them operate."

Oh, and the Koch brothers are funneling almost a million to Carlson's media outlet through a tax exempt non-profit which is almost certainly illegal.

Trump has been paying for good media coverage. That's called propaganda. Plain and simple. He paid Sinclair media to cover him favorably on the local news, he paid Carlson to cover him well on Fox News and at the Daily Caller. Who knows who else he paid. There's a problem when a narcissistic billionaire with no clue what he's doing can just buy his way into the presidency by bribing the media to lie for him. If we don't fix this, this is how American democracy will finally fall. We've had a pretty good run but when the wealthy can just control the country using propaganda to buy elections, we've become a plutocracy, or a kleptocracy or a kakocracy depending on which term you feel like using, they're all applicable.

Surprise, surprise: police report contradicts basically everything Tucker, right-wing stooges and media civility centrists were wringing their hands over:
>In the police report, there is no mention whatsoever of any damage to the front door of Mr. Carlson's residence. Not a scratch. This is consistent w/ protestors' saying they simply knocked on the door and then left a placard resting on it before retreating to the street.

>There is no mention in the police report of anyone chanting anything about pipe bombs or chanting any sort of threats against Mr. Carlson.

>What the police appeared to be focused on was the spraying of the anarchist symbol on the driveway of the residence by one person. That was the extent of the property damage. That was the extent of the activity that could possibly be construed as unlawful.

>Sparking More Calls for His Ouster, Chuck Schumer Cuts Deal With Mitch McConnell to Fast-Track Seven Trump Judges
>In addition to openly refusing to pressure his caucus to unite against President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is also helping his Republican counterpart ram through Trump’s far-right lower court nominees at a torrid pace.

>Sparking immediate outrage from progressives, Schumer cut a deal with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday that allowed the GOP to fast-track votes on seven of Trump’s federal court nominees in exchange for… well, it’s not exactly clear what he received in return, outside of getting to go home for a few days.

>Because these judges — selected with the help of the right-wing Federalist Society — are relatively young, they are now in a position to shape American law for decades to come, threatening the planet, workers, and women’s reproductive rights.

>“Sen. Schumer, why are you cutting a deal with Mitch McConnell to fast-track Trump judges? Why won’t you whip the vote to stop Kavanaugh?” wrote Indivisible in response to reports of the senators’ agreement. “We’re fighting to protect our courts and save our democracy. We expect you to do the same.”

The dog whistle becomes a bullhorn

>President Trump plans to sign an executive order that would remove the right to citizenship for babies of non-citizens and unauthorized immigrants born on U.S. soil

>This would be the most dramatic move yet in Trump's hard-line immigration campaign, this time targeting "anchor babies" and "chain migration." And it will set off another standoff with the courts, as Trump’s power to do this through executive action is debatable, to say the least.

>But one thing is certain: Calling for the elimination of birthright citizenship from our founding charter isn’t the expression of a fringe position within the Trump administration, or even within the broader Republican Party. The president has made his feelings about the issue clear since he was on the campaign trail, and others in the GOP field — even more moderate voices — soon fell in line. The reality remains: This has been a conservative pipe dream since at least the 1990s. That Mike Pence and Lindsey Graham quickly rose to Trump’s defense on Tuesday, the latter promising to back the president up with legislation, tells you how mainstream their position is.

>Despite that history, the credulousness of the report that got the ball rolling is still striking. Though the likelihood of an actual executive order is still very much up in the air, Axios noted uncritically that litigation over the question of birthright citizenship “would force the courts to decide on a constitutional debate over the 14th Amendment.” Except that there really is no debate about the meaning of the opening clause of what I consider to be our greatest amendment — which, as constitutional history would have it, turned 150 this year, and does so much more than just granting the right of citizenship to anyone born within our borders.

Donald Trump on Monday evening proudly asserted that he is a “nationalist” — a designation some of his fiercest critics have previously wielded against him as an attack on what they deem nativist policy pursuits by his administration.

“You know, they have a word, it sort of became old-fashioned. It’s called a nationalist,” Trump said at a campaign event in Houston, where he rallied voters to support Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in November’s midterm elections.

The United States received a payment of $100 million from Saudi Arabia on Tuesday, the same day Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived in Riyadh to discuss the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a State Department official confirmed Wednesday amid global calls for answers in the case.

Saudi Arabia publicly pledged the payment to support U.S. stabilization efforts in northeastern Syria in August, but questions persisted about when and if Saudi officials would come through with the money.

The timing of the transfer, first reported by the New York Times, raised questions about a potential payoff as Riyadh seeks to manage the blowback over allegations that Saudi agents were responsible for Khashoggi's disappearance. The State Department denied any connection between the payment and Pompeo's discussions with Saudi officials about Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributing columnist.
