Is that why Twitter banned The New York Post from its account until the 2020 election is over because they were the only widely-read news source that was openly discussing the Hunter Biden laptop scandal, which every other mainstream news outlet either ignored or claimed was fake Russian "disinformation" (very Orwellian term there), only to now a year and a half later amid that, ok, it was actually true, but whadaya whadaya... ?

Just wondering :P

Considering there was a real effort by Russians to spread misinformation to alter the election for either Trump or Bernie Sanders, I wouldn’t so easily dismiss the misinformation argument.

Interesting stat (and sort of sad fact since it just emphasizes how divided things are right now): Harris cast her 18th tie-breaking vote in the Senate today.

This ties her for fourth all-time after just 15 months... And she'll clearly break 19 to tie for third place, and will certainly hit 20 to solely claim third place soon. Might even get up to 25 before the end of this year. Seems possible that she could setting the all-time record by challenging Adams (29 votes) and Calhoun (31 votes), too, if neither party gets up to 52 after the midterms (51-49 usually results in at least a few tie-breaking votes being needed).

Only Manchin defected from the abortion bill vote, even though it was more far reaching than "codifying Roe" in that it would be almost impossible for states to even put restrictions on abortion like they could before.. At the very least Romney Collins and Murkowski voted against it.

The bill seemed worded in a tricky way to me where they claim abortions for viable fetuses are only allowed to protect the mother, but they repeatedly say "life and health" instead of just saying health. You can argue that opens the door open for the mother needing third trimester abortion to protect her "life" in a non-physical way.

If Dr. Oz wins the republican senate nom in PA might flip and vote for Fetterman lol

JK I'd never do that but what a mess. Trump could've endorsed Mccormick or Barnette and taken away the majority of Oz's support

Fetterman seems like a pretty down to earth chill guy. If it's him vs. Dr. Oz, it's like the ultimate match-up of total opposites. I'd have to think, or hope, Fetterman wins that one in a state like PA. Unsure of his health, but hoping for the best there.

Also, Cawthorn lost his primary, and conceded shortly after it was projected. The attacks against him were some of the most "GTFO" I can recall. After he mentioned those cocaine orgies, some very determined (high-ranking) people within GOP went all out in ensuring he lost his primary, and they succeeded. But to think that lingerie photos, a clip of his cousin touching his crotch, and a naked video where he humps his cousin's face, was what was too much for voters to tolerate versus his positions and what he's said and has voted for/against is pretty astounding. He even had Trump's endorsement (even if it was lukewarm).

Pennsylvania is a purple state that tends to alternate governors, so it's definitely a tossup. Trumps endorsement helped him in rural areas and his celebrity/liberal past social leanings probably helped in urban/suburban areas. I'd still vote for Oz if nothing else to help Mcconnell get that majority back

Acknowledging a demographic change that's been naturally occurring since the beginning of the "united states" is not the same as the conspiracy theory tucker and the rest of the republican party spews all the time.

Go fuck yourself. I mean that literally.

The Democrats literally brag about "the browning of America" via illegal immigration all the time. But when a Republican points it out, its a conspiracy theory.

The long term minorities=Democrats majority roadmap though is kind of getting messed up though as Hispanics are turning Republican, while Democrats possibly are getting stronger with white suburbanites and university educated

I know the Democrats are pushing for immigration reform and less strict punishment wielded against illegal immigrants, but I don’t know if any who directly support either illegal immigration itself or the when, “browning of America”

That being said, Shack is right here. Recent trend would indicate that racial minorities are becoming increasingly Republican which will be majorly undercutting to the Democrats offensive strategies as they are increasingly becoming the party of the suburbs and the educated. I think some key Democrats are starting to realize this as there is starting to be a push toward “kitchen table” policies.

Immigration policies are “naturally occurring”?

Yes, if that policy is a full open borders, but most policies on both side of the aisle support moderating immigration through laws and enforcement of borders thus trying to curb the natural migration of humans into our lands. So you are also right that immigration laws are unnatural. I for one think we should curb immigration in order to better create policies that benefit our citizens currently here with better parental leave policies, stronger support for PTOs, increased infrastructure, and better social safety net to aims to curb homelessness and fight the root causes of economic crime. So like you I am for fighting the naturally occurring immigration patterns.

I think it should be possible to support legal immigration but not illegal. I don’t know if the trade is 1 for 1 but my assumption is they let in less legal immigrants the more illegal ones they let in, so some people trying to do it the legal way are having their spot taken. Plus illegal immigrants can sex or drug traffic or send kids without parents first.

Something like 1.2 million people legally immigrate to the USA every year. Unless you’re a real estate magnate or big business owner that benefits from the downward pressure on wages and upward pressure on rents, this does not benefit you.

Yes, people immigrating to countries is natural. It's literally the foundation for this country. Are you people brain damaged? Have none of you ever studied history in your life?

I feel adding any high skill, high work ethic people is overall a positive. Businesses can hire more productive employees and they can contribute innovation wise industries like big tech, and if they’re working they’re paying more taxes than someone born in the US who’s lazy and on unemployment. You also can’t really argue that immigrants will shift the culture of what America is supposed to be when it seems like people born in the US are the ones becoming commies.

I think communism is popular amongst the the educated masses that have also not seen much financial success and have found themselves unsuccessful. Naturally they will not turn to the system they have failed in as a correct system often favoring a system that runs counter to it, which is this case is capitalism vs socialism. A major failure in modern American politics is the inability to provide competitive perks for its citizens amongst other developed nations. A key point of success under post World War II Europe was the understanding that a country that takes an interest in supporting its citizens would be a masses less likely to turn to other ideals which at that time was fascism. The United States also practiced this well, even at the private level under what is known as corporate welfare (Henry Ford for example).

Lol you always resort to insults so fast. Chill out a bit. Anyway, immigration policy is something set by governments, you know this. You can stop people from coming in. Like the US has done on many occasions, because yes, I've studied history.

It's not an earthquake, it's not a pandemic. It's the movement of people. Mexicans is tough because of the huge border; a wall like Israel's highly successful wall that keeps out African would-be-migrants would've been effective, but there's no wall so they keep flooding through. But other than Mexicans, it's pretty easy to stop people from, say, Pakistan and Somalia from coming into the the USA. They're all boarding planes which is one of the most highly regulated forms of transport. The only reason they keep coming is because the US government allows them to come.
