  1. The whole thing doesn't look very thought out. His lawyers could have made an agreement to return documents, a real agreement. Instead the plan seems to be to spit in the eye of the DOJ at every step. And the special master thing is a part of that. It's very Trumpian, but it's a pretty poor legal plan to delay and piss off the DOJ instead of seeking immunity. Especially when you consider how lenient the DOJ is on elites in these types of cases.
  2. Details On Foreign Government's Nuclear Secrets Reportedly Found In Mar-A-Lago Search Such information is so classified only the president and some members of the Cabinet or high-ranking officials know about them. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump-mar-a-lago-classified-nuclear_n_6317e18ae4b027aa40558295
  3. Newly obtained surveillance video shows fake Trump elector escorted operatives into Georgia county's elections office before voting machine breach https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/06/politics/surveillance-video-voting-machine-breach-coffee-county-georgia/index.html
  4. And only Trump and his servants can be trusted with properly storing them. Because they are excellent at that.
  5. So, a Trump judge has inserted herself into the middle of the investigation. Let us hope she enjoys the limelight. It must be amazing to be Trump. Since at least his school days there is constantly minions leaping out to save him from the latest bad behavior. It really is like being King Joffrey.
  6. FBI materials seized from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home included 90 empty folders Revelation raises possibility that some of government’s most highly sensitive documents may still be unaccounted for https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/sep/02/trump-fbi-search-materials-list-fbi-latest
  7. It sounds like rather than quit voting he needs to become a proponent for ranked-choice voting.
  8. So, this means Megan Thee Stallion has superpowers, right?
  9. Gotham Knights sounds awesome and I'll probably buy it. But I really am not happy that it includes enemies scaling to your level. I don't know why developers keep pushing this, but I find it annoying.
  10. Trump weighs delaying 2024 decision as political and legal troubles grow https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/31/politics/trump-delaying-2024-decision/index.html
  11. Billions in ‘dark money’ is influencing US politics. We need disclosure law https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/aug/29/billions-in-dark-money-is-influencing-us-politics-we-need-disclosure-laws
  12. Biden's student loan relief plan will mainly help working and middle class borrowers, report finds https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/26/politics/biden-student-loans-middle-class-penn-wharton-budget-model/index.html
  13. Yep, Jones is trying to pull an OJ. And no not that kind of OJ. Sandy Hook families ask judge to order Alex Jones to relinquish control of his company, alleging he transferred millions to himself and family https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/26/media/alex-jones-free-speech-systems-bankruptcy/index.html
  14. Yeah, so what's in there if anything? Like DMC I see a lot of black redactions.
  15. These southern conservative Christians are quite the players...but mainly at the junior highs it appears. I wonder if he goes mall cruising with Roy Moore?
  16. And your solution and Tywin's is to turn to the U.S. Congress. The same body notorious for not passing things, most especially economically progressive things. And the same ones that made student loans not dischargeable in bankruptcy. They were key in creating the problem. And they chose purposely not to address the problem. Biden, too didn't want to act at first. And he said Congress should address this. It's a great excuse not to act at all to kick it to these jokers in the Senate. Do you really trust Sinema to do what's right? More like she will give a thumbs down.
  17. That's an extreme outlier. And possibly an argument for Biden to have set the income requirements lower. If Biden had set the limit at 150 K you'd be quoting that number. Biden had to set a limit somewhere or we'd be dealing with something like Warren or Sanders would have done. The largest amount of loans in default are really only around $10 k. These are people where 10 K is a lot of money to them, they see that balance and panic and try to run from the debt. There's also people with balance so large that they realize they'll never pay it in their lifetime. I'm in that category. This jubilee doesn't change that either. The changes to monthly payments are a lot more helpful to me personally.
  18. The claims of student debtors getting "free cash" are pretty dishonest. These are debtors, remember. If there was a certain amount of wealth or income possessed by the student loan holders the debts would likely already be paid off. If they had a rich relative it would already be paid off. And the government is not putting money into bank accounts. These loans also don't behave like regular loans. For example there are income-based payment plans. And you can't file bankruptcy like a regular loan. None of this would be necessary if we simply allowed student loan debtors the right everyone else has: to go bankrupt.
  19. Well, one Biden didn't really want to forgive any loans at all. We know this because he said he wanted Congress to do it. It's surprising he's gone this far. And the plan is actually far more generous than I expected. And two, it's likely easier. When I had private loans they were held by a company. I had to negotiate with them completely separately from the Department of education. If Biden had wanted to pay them off, or do so for millions of people, he'd have had to get funding and also arrange payment with this private company. It might sound easy, but I imagine it's not on that huge scale.
  20. Biden announces student loan relief for borrowers making less than $125,000 after months of intense internal debate https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/24/politics/student-loans-joe-biden-white-house/index.html
  21. I've been wondering when one of them will knife the other. It's got to be coming at some point. I guess it's easier for Trump to move first though.
  22. It would be a good problem to have. And I say that as someone that values tackling income inequality. We're in the situation of the VRA and voting rights under constant attack by the SC and staggering amounts of women cut off from abortion healthcare. Would these voters turn the party to the wrong side on these issues? Seems very unlikely,. An example of new voters being a real problem would be the massive switch from Democratic party to Republican in the civil rights area. White House leaning toward canceling $10,000 in student loan debt for borrowers who make less than $125,000 https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/22/politics/student-loan-white-house/index.html
  23. ‘We got rolled’: How the conservative grassroots lost the fight with Biden because it was focused on Trump The former president’s presence on the political landscape is making it harder to launch a modern day Tea Party movement. https://www.politico.com/news/2022/08/22/conservative-grassroots-biden-trump-00052983
  24. Yep, they were conveniently labeled as not human so it's totally cool. They were just patriotically defending the border.
  25. Bush Jr. and Cheney really got this hate train going. With the torture, and changing the name for torture, and classifying people. But they also half-assed it by pretending to respect people and human rights at the same time as they were doing this. Trump is just completing the job. So he not only advocates for torture, but puts an actual white nationalist in charge of immigration policy and implements a Muslim ban.
