The economy. Did the see the close yesterday? My God, we are back on track again.
??? You've argued before, when the stock market fell, that the stock market is irrelevant to the economy as a whole.

SuperLib isn't talking about polling, he's saying that there will always be a bare minimum of 33% of Republicans in the senate who would not vote to convict if he was impeached, no matter what he did. And he is right.

Screw the FBI. These people are not armed vigilantes, it is a constitutional right to be able to form militias in order to defend the security of the state. These people are well within their rights to do what they're doing.
This is an absurdity.

This part of the world, Super, is extremely complicated. Ya got your Saudis. Ya got your Iranians. Between those two, that's enough trouble right there. I'd like to see all U.S. involvement over there end ASAP, but there are... complications.

President Donald Trump's national security adviser John Bolton on Wednesday will explain the administration's decision in a speech in Miami and will also announce new sanctions on Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua, countries he has branded a "troika of tyranny"

I guess the problem we all know Trump is corrupt and frequently bends the rules, lies and cheats so I guess the democrats think if they can dig enough they'll find the kind of evidence that fits the suspected crimes.
The real problem, as many posters on this website demonstrate, isn't that Trump is corrupt. It's not that he and his administration are attempting to fundamentally undermine the democratic principles of the republic, it's that his supporters don't care. If the Democratic Party discovered iron-clad proof that Trump is a criminal, they'd reply, "So? His crimes are good and cool". They're full on cultists.

Sure, but you realize, you still need to help pay for them with your tax dollars. You guys have completely flipped, now not only do you want them in the country, you want to pay to relocate them to sanctuary cities where they generally end up blending into society, working jobs you don't want to, and reproducing children that you think are evil.
Pretty much, I do admit it’s a good plan
Trump supporters, 2016: We're going to build a wall, and Mexico's gonna pay for it!
Trump supporters, 2019: We're going to let in every immigrant, and I'm going to pay for it!

You know why he did that. He can use that at his trial that he was taken against his will, it’s a good argument for his defense.
?? When people are arrested, it's almost always against their will. No-one wants to be arrested. Resisting arrest isn't a good argument in his defense, because resisting arrest is a crime.

There are so many unanswered questions
Allow me to assist you:
Now I would expect the tables to be turned sometime this Summer. What did Obama know and when did he know it?
More than Trump ever will; since he was born.
Did members of his administration unmasked American citizens illegally?
Did Hillary and the DNC collude with Russia to disseminate foreign propaganda into the 2016 election?
Did Hillary violate campaign finance laws by funneling money to Putin’s intelligence services to gather disinformation on the Trump campaign?
Was this foreign sourced opposition research used to surveile the campaign of an American presidential candidate?
No; such research does not exist.
Were there members of the DOJ and the FBI that were biased and used their positions in law enforcement to corrupt the election process?

Some democrats just hate President Trump; he's not a politician.
He is a politician. He's the President of the United States. He literally dictates the politics of the most powerful nation in the world (at the moment).

Oh, and by the way, you probably also missed all the hullabaloo when New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law new legislation that allows abortions up to birth and after Virginia Governor Ralph Northam backed infanticide during a radio interview...
People will miss things that didn't happen, yeah. Cuomo signed a law that codifies Roe vs. Wade into NY State law, wherein abortions after 24 weeks can only be performed in the event that the life of the mother is in danger or the fetus isn't viable. Virginia's bill also wouldn't alter any time limits on abortion in Virginia, and certainly no-one has advocated infanticide.
Wild, irresponsible comments like these are shameful.

of course it’s an Obama appointee. Who else would be considering all these “rights” that people have when they get caught illegally crossing our border.
A judge. Which is to say, someone who considers the law and the rights that people have under the US Constitution.

The American Left does not care about the law. Winning is everything - it’s how you get a $30 million Russian collusion investigation that comes up completely empty.
plasticmonkey already addressed your philosophical points, but on a monetary one: the investigation tuend a profit. It made the USA money.

Had to get Trumps name in there somehow. He had nothing whatsoever to to with this.
This is a very fair comment. But AFP (an agency I greatly respect) put it in because it's good for searches, which means it's good for clicks, which means its good for advertisers. That's capitalism: what's relevant isn;t important. The only important thing is: what's profitable?
For more, I'd recommend Capital Vols 1-3.

This is a guy who makes his employees go to the bathroom in plastic bottles during working hours because he won’t give them a proper break.
Yet has 36 billion dollars to give to an ex wife because he wants to play around. His lack of moral character negatively impacted tens of thousands of people.
This is nearly correct. Yes, Bezos is a morally disgraceful person, and the conditions of Amazon workers would shame even Dickensian villains, but this isn't just down to him. The reason that he (and the corporate "person" that is Amazon) does this is because: it's what is best in capitalism. If Amazon was kinder to its employees, and Bezos took less of a paycheck to give his workers a living wage, then a similar but more ruthless business wouldn't, Amazon would die.
To end human exploitation, we must end capitalism.

I don’t care what NPR says, I only care what the people at the border or ICE say.
Thats the only thing that matters, I could care less what any media outlets think.
Statistics and facts are more important than opinions when it comes to formulating policy.

Open borders already hurt Americans and our economy.
North Carolina, the home of this paper, isn't on the border. You complain all the time that you don't care about the opinions who don't live on the border. So why do you care about the opinions of a NC newspaper?
Oh, it's because they wrote a half-baked editorial which happens to agree with you.
