Well, he’d have no more control over the military, correct? They’d have to physically remove him, no?

I think the gist is that he would claim "irregularities" and try and have the result declared invalid. Not sure what the military (or police) would do in such a situation.

 

Still, it gives me the warm and fuzzies picturing Bone Spurs being frog-marched out of the WH by a couple of MPs....

The results would still stand, I think. I don’t think he’d be able to supersede election results based on a whim.

Bill Maher has been making this case for the better part of a year now and one of his questions for potential Trump replacements is always "What are you going to do when he refuses to leave the White House?"

 

I have an idea: Concerned citizen blockade all of his commercial properties. Golf courses, Hotels, Casinos (does he have any of those still?) Nobody gets in until he gets out...

Someone let it slip that Ivanka is skinny dipping in the National Mall reservoir, or whatever its called. Guarantee he’ll leave permanent orange skid marks across Pennsylvania ave....


Boom.... done!

I have a strong suspicion that many Alpha conservative types will react to a potential TRUMP loss in November in much the same way.  

I'm not saying it is a guarantee either way who wins in November.   I just feel that people like you will be crying etc.  if TRUMP loses.

I don’t care who wins... Trump is an idiot and Biden has been accused of sexual harassment 8 times. Everyone in America loses no matter who wins the election.

Double that and you are getting to TRUMP'S number.

Words matter:

Eight women have accused Biden of touching them inappropriately or invading their personal space in ways that made them feel uncomfortable. None of them said Biden's behavior amounted to sexual harassment or assault.

hey thats what discussions are for. 

 

I see the dismissal of Bernie as something the younger voters may take as dismissals of whats important to them. What might save Biden's bacon is his VP choice - if thats a person that can re-ignite interest in younger voters maybe they have a chance. 

which of the black female candidates

or other high profile black woman

will biden choose ?

I don't think it's so much of an inferiority complex as it is having a lower Canadian dollar. It makes things difficult for publicly owned Canadian companies to not get bought out by companies from the states and other countries. You hear mostly Canadian companies getting bought out and hardly the other way around.

 

If we want to not be "inferior" (and I don't think we are for the record, at least not mentally), we need to get that dollar up in my opinion.

When I was working in manufacturing, we loved the low Canadian dollar. We made a crap ton of money selling product into the Western US. So much, that when the Canadian dollar rose to par with the US we simply leased some space on the US and started manufacturing there.

Our company became the biggest in Western Canada, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.

 

Things we’re going great, until our Majority owner decided to sell to an even bigger company from Quebec:angry:

 

The new regime didn’t comprehend our business model and ran the company into the ground. 
 

For those in manufacturing, the secret is to buy raw materials in Canada, at the lower cost and sell finished goods in the US for those higher value $US dollars.  It helps if you sell a product that sells for $100 CDN,  for $100 US in the the US. That is how it was in our industry. 
 

Those were the days.

The media is their own worst enemy. Credible Journalism has been thrown out the window and now nothing can be believed.

 

Just the way Unit 74455 and their cutout Guccifer 2.0 wanted it to be. People staring at their Facebook pages getting brainwashed one click at a time. 

My office overlooks a crosswalk and I see people nearly getting killed every day because they can’t put the effing phones down to watch where their going. 

 

Not hard at all to understand why most people don’t know what to believe anymore. DT was on the right place at the right time to capitalize   on the situation.

So Trump campaign went through all that trouble trying to dig up dirt on the Bidens in Ukraine when the real dirt was right there under their noses?

 

Well golly gee whizz. What a co inky dink that is. 


Before the rush to judgement begins, maybe we should remember that Biden is innocent until proven guilty. 
 

It’s not as if the Trump team hasn’t pulled out all of the stops in the past. Roy Cohn, Steve Bannonn, Paul Mannafort, Roger Stone.... the list goes on and on.

 

One swamp gets drained and another is created. Maybe the media doesn’t cover because they don’t want to get sued for libel.

Sadly, I may have to agree with you.  There is a good chance I only vote on local and state elections this year as I can't get behind either of the two main candidates.

 

I can't believe this is the best our political parties can offer, its almost demoralizing as a voter.

Looks like the reporter for your article has himself a bit of an obsession... I wonder if this has an impact on his “journalistic integrity”

 


Dear Bernie

 

Dear Bernie, I am a 28-year-old History PhD from India. Since you announced your run in 2015, I’ve put in hundreds of hours into your campaign efforts: into texting, online activism, watching every CSPAN speech, rally, town hall and interview — in writing academic and journalistic articles on you and the movement your brave candidacy has sparked.

 

Dear Bernie, I even convinced my father, a publisher, to buy the India rights to your autobiography “Outsider in the White House” because we could not contribute to your campaign, being foreign citizens.

 

Dear Bernie, what drives me is the fact that no politician in human history, short of Martin Luther King Jr or Eugene Victor Debs had the sort of unending compassion for and rock solid integrity and commitment to the people that you possess.

 

If the left leadership in India had a third of your commitment to the masses, my country would have been a much better place. Even Gandhi famously took massive amounts of contributions from billionaires and corporations — you have not.

 

Dear Bernie, you are also the only major US politician calling out the fascism of Narendra Modi and the ruling BJP in India, and are standing up for the minorities. We need you as President more than ever now......

 

     ————————————————
 

It goes on and on and on.... Link

 

Sounds like a guy with a healthy and balanced perspective....
