NYPD Looks to Charge 9 “Proud Boys” With Assault for Manhattan Fight
just start with her wikipedia page from time as California AG and go from there, especially her reaction to prosecutor misconduct
this is enormously important, especially in a state that is becoming blue quick so it'll be where the GOP goes the farthest in trying to combat it
much like NC
Idk man I’ve heard there are some commies donating to dem campaigns.
I'm not a big death penalty guy, but there's the reason we voted against it.
Because, we are a POS backwards ass country?

The biggest political problem in America, explained in one chart
Americans don’t just disagree on the issues. They disagree on what the issues are.
By Dylan Scott@dylanlscott[email protected] Oct 15, 2018, 2:40pm EDT
Republicans and Democrats don’t just disagree on the issues, though of course they do. Americans are divided on which issues are important in the first place.
That was the unmistakable finding of a new survey from the Pew Research Center. The research outfit polled 10,000 Americans, about a month before the 2018 midterms. The survey found that, when you break Americans out by political party, they often have totally different notions about what the biggest issues facing the country are.
This chart sums it up better than I ever could: on race, on climate change, on gun violence, on illegal immigration, Republicans and Democrats are irreconcilably divided over whether those issues are even important at all.
Pew Research Center
Even an issue like “wages and the cost of living” — which might sound like rote economic concerns — 67 percent of Democrats think they are a very big problem, while just 27 percent of Republicans agree.
The two parties do overlap on a few things. More than 60 percent of Democrats and Republicans believe drug addiction is a major problem. Voters from both parties are worried about violent crime. They’re also both, oddly enough, concerned about the federal deficit.
But on the issues that usually dominate the discourse, Americans can’t agree on what we should be talking about.
We usually think about the policy gaps between the parties. On gun control, for example, Democrats support universal background checks and assault weapons bans; Republicans oppose those measures. But it’s more than that: Only 25 percent of Republicans think gun violence is a very important problem for the country to tackle.
You could say the same for climate change or income equality. On the latter, 77 percent of Democrats think it’s a big problem — and only 22 percent of Republicans say the same.
We typically think of political polarization in terms of parties: True swing voters are disappearing, as Americans drift apart ideologically. We have all become more uniformly Republican or Democrat. We even think of polarization in terms of geography, with more and more like-minded voters congregating and living near each other. We might see the Democratic flirtation with socialism or the Republican obsession with cutting corporate taxes and conclude that, on any given issue, the gap between the two parties is just too big to breach.
But the gap is still bigger than that. Americans disagree about which issues are worthy of debate. Some of that can likely be traced to this heavy sorting between the parties: Democrats are more likely to be people of color or women, so it makes sense that they would be more concerned with racism or sexism (50 percent of Democrats versus 12 percent of Republicans).
But this division on what the right questions are seems deeply embedded. If the problem of polarization is ever to be addressed, we have to figure out how to talk to people who don’t just disagree about the best way to solve problems, but disagree about what the problems are to begin with.
again, that dude shouldn't be posted
he's a krassenstein/hot tub level grifter
So Trump says Saudis denied killling the dude. Now reports coming out that they are about to admit dude was killed. Trump again proves he is a dumbass that knows nothing.
am i supposed to gather from that that people who support republican candidates can't be bothered to care about more than like 3 things?
and the world will buy it because that sweet Saudi money
incredible what they're admitting to, if you had your photo taken by news agencies you're getting executed ten minutes ago
"We only meant to torture and kidnap him, but he up and died on us."
"Why did you bring a bonesaw?"
"... Steve is afraid of flying without his lucky bonesaw..."
So they're... rogue interrogators authorized by the Saudi government. trump is going to fuck up how to describe this. None of his base will care, it didn't happen to a US citizen so big whoop.
And yet he still flew? Pffft, Steve is a slut/liar/political operative.
"Guys I just happened to bring this bonesaw with us, but since we're here we might as well use it"
When a large portion of the American adult population refuses to acknowledge facts as being indisputable, is susceptible to fear mongering and propaganda, and feels the privilege they have enjoyed (or think they have enjoyed) by circumstance is at risk, you get what we have today.
Conservatives simply do not inhabit the same reality that the rest of the world around them does. It as frightening as it is fascinating.
Read these in John Oliver’s voice
Muslim flying with a weapon puts America in danger!
I'm going Shu-tier with this one.
Im betting that Saudi Arabia discussed his abduction (or even murder) with the Trump admin prior to them carrying out the task. This was an American Journalist after all. I think that people have seen the communications between WH and SA and that was why Nikki Haley ran for the exit immediately after learning of this.
Too many "coincidences"
"We were just asking him some questions and...uh...he uhh...fell apart. No one's fault really."
This is quality here.
Guys we hate America because we expect the government to stand up to oppression. I’m certain Ben Shapiro will be making that argument this week.
Way to lead from behind. No one has done it better than trump!
Can’t do an apology tour if ya never stand for anything. Checkmate libs.
But the Saudi's spend a lot on Trump properties. That's gotta count for something. I mean it's not like the main 9/11 attackers were Saudi, libtard.
Don't forget a government murdered a journalist. This is like porn to him. Now if they peed on his corpse, it is actual porn to him.
Oh you mean the people who bragged they “have kushner in their back pocket”?
I suggest you spend more time pursuing more worthwhile investigations, such as Uranium One.
If You’re Not Scared About Fascism in the U.S., You Should Be
I mean it's not like these people got poor Ben Ghazi or Seth Rich murdered like the Clintons did.

In all seriousness, Chef Goldblum do you know any of the guys involved in this?
My vote for Mike Huckabee in a primary will be my scarlet letter.
This is hugeeeeeee. I think 3 seats are coming up so Gillum wins and he solidly keeps the court more liberal. Need that since Rs will control the Florida Senate still.
This fucking guy.
3 years after Trump starts blaring his desire to become a facsist leader and this guy thinks there may be some parallels to other facist states we should worry about.
I’ve read this six times and still have no idea what the fuck you’re trying to say.
The people the Saudis sent to Turkey to kill this guy (that were caught on camera by the Turks) are going to be killed.
How lucky is it for the Saudi's they had a cleaning crew scheduled to come and clean the EXACT DAY they were allowing access to the consulate?
Poor Ahmed all he wanted to do was try out his new chainsaw that was highly recommended by the cartels and see if it lived up to the hype
Rhetorical, but does he even know what a DNA test is? You would think he does with all those potential love children.
Why did Warren sink to his level? What was she expecting?
Trump assumes everyone is as shady as he is. Unless he is able to personally profit like from the Russians or Saudis. Pay Trump and you get all sorts of goodwill regardless of how it affects the country.
What a fucking coward. Anyone that justifies his cowardice here is a fucking coward themselves. Buying an AR-15 or waving a flag won't change your beta DNA
So it's a non issue during her campaign run.
Im sure she knew it was going to be exactly this, at least this changes the narrative to a non-issue.
Smart move by her but he'll just say she lied or faked it
