Yeah dude, using leverage to get a vote is what is fucking up the country. Not some Senator willing to fuck over 32 million people while his family kicks back in their mansions made by illegally price gouging life-saving medicine.

The company his daughter was the CEO of (Mylan) settled with the SEC and Justice Department in 2017 and 2019, then merged with another company, and no longer exists. She got a golden parachute and resigned last year. There’s not a whole lot to leverage there.

Always good to see the smartest guy in the room totally missing the point

Has the statute of limitations passed on criminal charges? If not, let's roll.

Woke up this morning wondering if the BLM protests are still going on in Portland. Didn't read anything other than some protesting in Pearl district because of Biden's immigration policies (?).

So is the BLM stuff done with or are there still protestors out in force?

Just so everyone knows, Biden is 100% responsible for higher gas prices and ruining everything that is 100% American that you know and love, like low gas prices, that are constitutionally guaranteed.

Biden is in a tough spot but don't disagree on his approach. SA is too important "right now" (need some more time for oil independence). Khashoggi was not a US citizen, was not a permanent resident, and the crime was not on US soil.

Quote:
On Friday, the administration released a declassified intelligence report on Khashoggi's death that said the crown prince, known as MBS, directly approved the killing of the journalist. Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced visa restrictions that affected 76 Saudis involved in harassing activists and journalists, but he didn't announce measures that touch the crown prince despite the fact that President Joe Biden promised to punish senior Saudi leaders while on the campaign trail.

CNN previously reported that two administration officials said sanctioning MBS was never really an option, operating under the belief it would have been "too complicated" and could have jeopardized US military interests in Saudi Arabia. As a result, the administration did not even request the State Department to work up options for how to target MBS with sanctions, one State Department official said.

Biden said at the White House on Saturday that there will be an announcement on Monday "about what we're going to be doing with Saudi Arabia generally." He also told Univision on Friday that he was now dealing with the Saudi King and not bin Salman, saying "the rules are changing" in the US' relationship with the Saudis.

White House communications director Kate Bedingfield said Sunday that Biden's forthcoming announcement is "not a new policy announcement," but an "elaboration" of Friday's actions.

I don't think there's been any organized protesting affiliated with BLM for a few months.

I guess he should've doubled down and said that all his accusers were too ugly for him to "assault". That would've been the "strong" reply.

It is so hard now a days to tell when someone is "done" or not, politically. I think Coumo is done.

‘Our system basically crashed like a computer:’ Jackson Public Works Dir. said progress made in restoring water to residents

This is as good a place to put this as any. Another American city's water system has been compromised.

For all the jokes over the last four years about "Infrastructure Week," we really actually have a desperate need for wartime-level infrastructure spending. It would have been great to have.

It's a lot cheaper (and more humane for those who care about such things) to update bridges, water systems, levees, electrical grids, etc. before they break than to fix them after they collapse.

It is amazing how these take down everyone (which they should) but Trump only because he uses the most Neanderthal response possible.

I feel like the nursing home scandal should have ended his career.

Yeah it should have, especially as much grandstanding as he did, but this is the dagger.

I think he may have figured a way to weather one scandal or the other. I think it is both that dooms him.
