I'm still on this, because fuck this ridiculous statement.

it’s simply that most people are able to sustain conflicting ideas and understand the degrees of nuance inherent in people, and how it’s amplified when are you the commander in chief of most the powerful defense in the world.

Talk about nuance to the thousands of people killed by drones, including 324+ civilians and an American citizen.

Obama reportedly told senior aides in 2011: “Turns out I’m really good at killing people. Didn’t know that was gonna be a strong suit of mine.”

This was originally reported in Mark Halperin and John Heilemann's Double Down: Game Change 2012, where the words "Obama said quietly" appeared between the two sentences. The impression it's meant to convey is that Obama was sobered by it. It wasn't a casual boast.

cool, so we're going to use this thread to re-litigate the Obama era.

No luck involved, do your duty USA.

sadly, whenever active voter suppression efforts are a concern, some luck comes into play as well. also the litigation of the results, state-by-state, by the trump administration, there's luck involved because sometimes they randomly select federal judges, and if you get a trump-era judge they're probably a total fucking scumbag

From today's polls, Florida looks about dead even: Biden's a little bit ahead in two, Trump a little bit ahead in two (one of which is Susquehanna, not highly rated).

But the most important three look really good: Pennsylvania (+7, +6), Michigan (+7, +7, +7), Wisconsin (+11). Everything else is moot in terms of simply winning the EC.

Maybe if people would stop posting about him, we'd be able to stop re-litigating it.

I'm done for now, though.

my comment was directed at the entire convo, not specifically your posts.

convo itself is fine and valid, just...we have threads where it might be better suited when we're kinda anxious about the current election.

In terms of mass murders and war crimes, where does Obama rank among US presidents?

The whole nineteenth century was a series of war crimes and mass murders against Native Americans. Plus the atrocities in the Philippines. We musn't forget all the military interventions in Latin America under cover of the Monroe Doctrine. So, I'd say Obama is below the median.

I think all of us have that fear to a degree. the stakes are too high, so even the image of a victorious Trump will make most of us sick to our stomach. we have PTSD from 2016. this is the shit Lebron James can shake out of his head as he takes the game-tying freethrow, but I can't.

Yeah even if - IF - a court ruled that the jurisdiction acted improperly, disenfranchising those voters would be the wrong remedy - they simply believed what their jurisdiction told them.

On the other hand, a decision on the federal case will be worse than useless if it comes too late for the voters to remedy it by voting again, so... back to nail-biting

Elsewhere in the report, it’s stated that Trump is also trying to push through a regulation that would exclude transgender people from federally funded homeless shelters and loosen water-saving standards on showerheads—a personal grievance the president has frequently railed about to rally crowds.

Sidney Powell, the lawyer recently distanced from the Trump campaign, on Wednesday filed typo-filled lawsuits in both Michigan and Georgia alleging election fraud.

The suits alleged problems linked to voting machines, mail-in ballots and former Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, according to Bloomberg. Powell repeatedly made the accusations without providing evidence while she was a member of the Trump campaign’s legal team.

The new suits also included allegations about forged ballots and observers being unable to watch vote tabulation, Bloomberg reported.

President Trump and his allies have repeatedly alleged that the election was riddled with widespread voter fraud without providing any evidence.

Both of the cases filed by Powell were riddled with typographical issues.

The case in Michigan had a number of formatting problems that removed spacing between words, Bloomberg reported. In the Georgia suit, the word district was misspelled twice on the first page of the document: There was an extra c for “DISTRICCT,” and then it was spelled “DISTRCOICT.”
