Pelosi's iron hand is the reason elected Democrats are not allowed to think, or speak, for themselves. It's Pelosi's way, or the highway.

The Republicans will learn all about that when the Senate trial comes around. I don't see much evidence of them thinking or speaking for themselves as it is.

This is relevant and interesting -

Anything that you would prefer to believe is always "interesting." You didn't add an "oh my", like we're all supposed to be shocked?

Time to pop some good bubbly.

Isn't any time good for you to start popping bubbly? Or beer, or scotch, or...

A call for celebration is in order

Party time for all the pro-Trump paid shills, eh?

Love it. It just got easier for the Republican controlled Senate to repay the Houses bias with their own biased trial...

Still not found those morals anywhere?

As is always the case - this funding will go to sectors which support the election of LDP politicians. 

Specifically into the bank accounts of companies with LDP-friendly owners, from which it will never re-emerge. Triple scotches and sakes all round for the good old boys!

"...imbecile and political dwarf..."

Whatever else Kim may be, by the above description of Shinzo, Kim's ability to judge people is spot on.

Quite right. They have sized Abe up well, as vile as they may be in other respects.

Why would Trump waste time at a Democrat-run impeachment hearing?

I would have thought the greatest US President of all time would relish any opportunity to run rings about a bunch of dumb Congressmen with a mind-boggling combination of 8d chess, tweets, kung fu and golf.

I guess in 50 years most Japanese will live in a few major cities.

There is still a long way to go before the opposition parties can hope for credible proposals for the people. To be able to form an alternative change of government to the LDP.

No, coming up with an attractive manifesto is not the main problem. To present a real threat to the LDP there needs to be one opposition party that is well-funded enough to field candidates that support the manifesto 100% in every constituency election. The major parties in the US and the UK are just about evenly matched, hence frequent changes of government. This is not the case in Japan, with one major party and numerous small ineffectual ones.

Presumably you're quite relaxed about the idea of President Trump committing illegal acts to put the Dems in their place too.

@Simon Foston.

Welcome to new (real) world Simon.

We only care because the left media says we should care. In U.S politics. Threatening to hold back aid and to dig up dirt on political rival is not such serious infraction in realtily.

So just supposing some smoking gun appeared that even Republicans would have to acknowledge as conclusive proof of illegal acts committed by President Trump, you think Republican Senators would still be okay with exonerating him? After all I'm sure they have a better grasp of how this new (real) world works than me.

I personally could care less if Trump asked another country to dig up the dirt on scummy Biden, or any other Dem, for that matter, even if it is illegal.

Well done PM Abe, WELL DONE! Amazing achievement!

You set the bar pretty low for "amazing" achievements, don't you.

"The biggest reason (for his longevity) is that he's better than the DPJ government," Seiko Noda, an LDP lawmaker and potential Abe rival, told Reuters.

Hardly an amazing achievement. He hasn't managed much else.

After he quit the last time complaining of stomachache and all the scandals that followed him, he made up his mind to watch the political proceedings from the back benches quietly for the rest of his life. But...

Not too sure where you're going with any of this.

Remember Abe comes from a prominent political dynasty in Japan. 

That's good?

The problem I see here is not so much that Abe is a deeply corrupt, incompetent wannabe autocrat as the positive comments about him display a distinct intellectual vacuity on the part of his supporters. I've never read a credible defense of his record in office - while it may be true that he's better than the DPJ government as Seiko Noda claims that's not much of an accomplishment.

"No one who actually has a clue about what's going on here is still flogging this Hunter Biden nonsense."

After a cursory skim of the rest of that comment it looks like meandering waffle. Still firing blanks with the Biden stuff.

She testified that Hunter Biden’s appointment to the Board of the Ukrainian Gas company was indeed suspicious.

No, she didn't.

Under questioning from Republicans, she acknowledged that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, serving on the board of a gas company in Ukraine could have created the appearance of a conflict of interest.

It doesn't mean the same thing. She also testified, in case you missed it, deliberately or otherwise:

But she testified the former vice president acted in accordance with official U.S. policy.

No one who actually has a clue about what's going on here is still flogging this Hunter Biden nonsense.

So what do you call the last 3 years of false allegations and dud bombshells from the media?

I call it nothing that the Democrats felt they could launch impeachment proceedings based on. I also call the allegations unproven because unlike his marks I'm not determined to find Donald Trump innocent of absolutely everything no matter what.
