Barr/Trump call and response is very fine Kabuki theater, and MSM is applauding appropriately.

Sullivan is a treasure.

Tlaib and Omar are campaigning for a Jew—but as progressives, they hate genocide, no matter who’s perpetrating it.

I think you'll find that our legal system will not allow you to prevent Jews from speaking and voting.

Falsely accusing Jews of imaginary atrocities is disgusting.

Shame on you!

“Administration officials tell Axios Trump feels he’s surrounded by snakes and wants to clear out all the disloyal people.” https://axios.com/johnny-mcentee-white-house-d1c29eee-8b0a-4c4d-8ba4-9355f3c27f4f.html

That's comforting. So different from the mindset of a Stalin or a Hitler.

@blatham,
Bloomberg has one main goal. To knock out Trump.

Is Bloomy the best? No. Can he outwit and out maneuver Trump? Yes. Plus, he won't break a sweat while doing it.

Just be on the watch though when he uses a loophole to manage to get himself a third term.

Bloomy is 78 years young today

Ocasio-Cortez just showed Democrats how to end the purity wars

Bernie Sanders is more of a pragmatist than you may think. He’s even more of a pragmatist than many of his own supporters think. In fact, throughout his career Sanders has managed to make a case for maximalist policy such as single-payer health care while still supporting compromises such as the Affordable Care Act when his vote was needed.

But it’s one thing to be a member of Congress and it’s another to be president, and should Sanders win the White House, questions of how far to push and what to accept will define his term in office.

Which is why it was interesting to see his most high-profile supporter, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, inject this note of pragmatism into the debate:
Quote:
Ocasio-Cortez ― one of the most outspoken advocates for Medicare for All ― said she thought voters understood there was an “inherent check” on the president’s ability to actually change things like our health care system. And she argued that the realities of governing were actually an argument for someone like Sanders, as he’d be able to push Democrats and resulting changes further left.

But Ocasio-Cortez is also realistic about how far even a President Sanders could actually move Congress.

“The worst-case scenario? We compromise deeply and we end up getting a public option. Is that a nightmare? I don’t think so,” she said.
Ocasio-Cortez stressed that just getting a public option for health care wasn’t the left’s ultimate goal. But she also said she wasn’t here to railroad other members with differing viewpoints on health care ― she just thinks it helps to have a president who has a more ambitious platform than Congress so that Democrats could stretch what’s possible.

@coldjoint,
In this case the genocide that they are pretending to hate is the genocide that they are falsely accusing Israel of committing.

Sanders and his supporters have a strong neonazi streak. They love making false accusations against Israel.

I agree, Israel is not the bad guy here. I just do not buy into the self hatred, but that is what it looks like.

Re Bloomberg
He will, if he succeeds, make it clear that every political office, no matter how high, can be bought like any high status commodity. That's the danger with him. Imagine if Lachlan Murdoch gets an urge to do that. It turns the US into something like Berlusconi's Italy.
