this is very reminiscent of people delivering news about record grain harvests to stalin as millions of people starved to death.

the point isn’t to properly inform people, but rather to say what Dear Leader wants to hear.

wow what a complete fraud she is, having lived in a small one story two bedroom home. how dare those brown people have indoor plumbing and a yard!

these choads love to wax romantic about the american dream except when a family from puerto rico works really hard and scrapes together enough money to afford a modest middle-class home in a nice area - then they get demonized by the dog whistle crowd who think that nice things are only for the whites.

The details: The bill, titled the "United States Fair and Reciprocal Tariff Act," would give Trump unilateral power to ignore the two most basic principles of the WTO and negotiate one-on-one with any country:


Yes the Fair And Reciprocal Tariff Act, or the FART Act.

I think Cohen, Mueller, the special master, Avenetti, your mom, and 1/10th of New York medallion holders all have the goods, at this point.

?? What/how would a possible impeachment effect a SCOTUS justice in a negative way such that he would want to resign? I don’t see the reasoning there.

I guess you missed the news about Roberts' son at Deutchsebank being the loan officer that sent Trump millions when none of the other banks would touch him.

I like the total lack of self-awareness that has these clods constantly preening like they're big, tough alpha dudes who don't take any horsefeathers, yet they talk about a street gang like each member is horsefeathering terrifying super criminal that we should live in constant fear of. You're supposed to somehow be the toughest person around and terrified of everything at the same time.
