Twitter's great. I follow a lot of my favorite artists, musicians, record labels, authors and news outlets. It's a great way to filter the firehose of information we're hit with 24 hours a day.

It's very much a 'you get what you follow' situation.

So, regardless of what Trump does, or what Democrats find he has done, they should not seek impeachment because the Senate would reject it?

Again, no one on this Earth thinks that the Senate would ever impeach Trump for anything. 

IMO, they shouldn't seek impeachment for a specific thing if it's an investigation most people aren't invested in and don't like hearing about that doesn't prove Trump did what he was being investigated for. And I'm worried the Democrats will think after the Mueller hearing that they will have proven to the general public that this is the thing they should pursue to the point of seeking Trump's impeachment for the obstruction they uncover talking to Mueller about his report.

Looks like he backed down.

Washington (CNN): President Donald Trump is expected to issue an executive action Thursday directing the Commerce Department to obtain citizenship data through means other than the US census, according to two people with knowledge of the plan.

These people said Trump is expected to table his effort to add a question about citizenship status to the 2020 census, setting aside his demands last week to continue pursuing the issue despite a Supreme Court order blocking it. 
Trump tweeted Thursday morning he would be holding a press conference in the Rose Garden in the afternoon about "the census and citizenship." Attorney General William Barr will participate in the event, according to Justice Department spokesperson Kelly Laco. The Justice Department declined further comment on the details of the planned announcement. 
 
^^^As long as it doesn’t lead to undercounting of people, I’m okay with it.

You think Mueller's going to tell the Democrats that his investigation was obstructed to the point that he couldn't proceed after everything he's said so far? Bold strategy, Cotton.

You are a DEVIL in Sheep's clothing

Fair enough.

As like with Trump getting elected, the only positive outcome from this QAnon crap is that it has exposed who the a**holes and crazies are in today's America.

Hey . . . All I'm going to say about this is that it doesn't help the Freshmen to drop the bigot bomb on Pelosi.  That was just dumb.

Beto, Booker, and Klobuchar now have 2% in 3 polls. Only 1 more needed to hit the polling threshold.

Yang's first qualifying 2% poll. Him and Castro need 3 more to hit the polling threshold. Both have hit the donor threshold.

That's how I define Rapinoe's antics, her attention seeking sense of inadequacy.  And she's at the top of her game.  Sad.

just wait until you hear who's president

Because the media uncovering SECRET facebook and PRIVATE chat groups, that no one's ever heard of, really shows who are the crazy ones. (which is true since the Vice article specifically says those groups target mentally ill people.)

Yet we have celebrities, journalists, professors, and politicians OPENLY praising, defending, and supporting ANTI-FA for years...

Fun to put some perspective on people's predictions

 

 

This isn't to call out PG specifically, but to say that we have our biases, and those biases can blind us to the truth.

you always have been giving her a second chance, that is to say, you've been more "on the money" than "off"

Could have just quoted those.

That was around the point Warren opened her campaign with that DNA test debacle and that part of her website saying stuff like that she didn't have a racist artifact in her kitchen. It was a terrible rollout and the poll numbers reflected it. She has rebounded in a major way over the past few weeks as other candidates have imploded. Personally speaking, I'd be more than fine if Sanders and Warren became the front runners once Biden erodes some more. Left and center left leading the way is a far healthier position to be in than the usual center right and center battles we've grown used to.

As for the rest, seems like I was mostly right. Beto absolutely didn't cancel out Bernie like some centrist wishful thinkers were expecting. Gabbard and Ojeda were both irrelevant. Harris faded fast after that and only got a bump again by dunking on Biden... Doubt she'll remain in that position for long, especially since she flip flopped on the busing issue.
