    What happened in NC between 2004 and 2008?

    "Obama mobilized the base: Perhaps more than any other candidate could have, Obama mobilized his core base in North Carolina in record numbers. At the forefront were African-American voters, who added over 300,000 registrations in 2008 and went to Obama by 95%. Obama also won over young voters by large numbers: 74% of those under 30 went Obama." "De-mobilized Republicans: N.C. Republicans, many of whom are aligned with the "values conservative" wing of the party, didn't seem to identify with McCain. The lack of excitement is reflected in the GOP's lackluster registration numbers in 2008. Of the 629,000 new voters registered in North Carolina between January and November, 54% were Democrats, 34% Independents -- and just 12% Republicans." https://www.facingsouth.org/2008/11/election-2008-how-did-obama-win-nc.html

    The Official Robert Mueller is comin! Thread

    I know it was 2 months and 50 pages ago but another Trumper conspiracy theory is shot down. "Former Wasserman Schultz aide Imran Awan reaches plea deal that debunks conspiracy theories" http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/politics/fl-reg-imran-awan-plea-deal-20180703-story.html "“The Government has uncovered no evidence that your client violated federal law with respect to the House computer systems,” including stealing equipment or illegally accessing or transferring information, prosecutors wrote in the plea agreement dated and signed Tuesday. Federal prosecutors described in the agreement a “thorough investigation” that included forensic analysis of computer equipment and other devices, log-on and usage data and interviews with about 40 witnesses." And of course on Fox News' front page they post an opinion from some random Trumper that says the Justice Department is covering up a possible spy ring. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2018/07/03/justice-department-covers-up-possible-spy-ring-scandal-in-democratic-congressional-offices.html I spent the last year interviewing hundreds of people and chasing leads for my upcoming book –titled “Spies in Congress” – about the alleged spy ring believed led by Awan that may have operated in the offices of more than 40 Democratic members of Congress.

    Putin/Trump Summit

    And then there is this: https://www.axios.com/donald-trump-foreign-policy-europe-nato-allies-worried-bd1e143a-e73a-415b-b688-d18ab2d902e7.html Scoop: Trump's private NATO trashing rattles allies "In one extraordinary riff during his meeting with the G7 heads of state earlier this month in Quebec, Trump told the other leaders: "NATO is as bad as NAFTA." An official read this quote to me from notes transcribed from the private meeting." "Trump made the comment after telling the G7 leaders that Crimea probably should belong to Russia because everyone there speaks Russian, the source added."

    Justice Kennedy announces retirement

    Unfortunately there isn't much the Democrats can do to stop it. Their best bet is to try to get a Republican or two (Jeff Flake, Bob Corker, Lisa Murkowski, or Susan Collins) to vote against the pick. Flake and Corket have talked crap about Trump since they announced they wouldn't be running again but have still voted for everything Trump wants a majority of the time. Collins has a pro choice voting record according NARAL but Murkowski has a pro life voting record. As long a McCain isn't able to vote, the Democrats would need 1 of the four to vote no.

    If Trump's pick gets approved, Gay Marriage and Abortion will be overturned in the next 18-24 months.
  7. MJ had to pick one. Would give some info on him but he is a draft and stash guy who may never even play for us.
  8. I like how you added the word "all" to your statement when it's not in the article. Then you dare us to find a quote of Trump saying something that you just made up. The articles does say that "Trump calls Mexicans "rapists"" which he factually did. Here is Trump's quote: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” he said in the same speech. “They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” So Mexico sends its people, They're rapists. So the article isn't fake, your made up quote is fake.

    So there is a mass shooting going on and he see's a report about on TV in his house. He gets on his bike and bikes really fast for 3 miles then sneaks into a school where a guy is actively shooting and is surrounded by the police. He slips into the school and starts recording interviews with students and convinces a teacher to lie about pulling him into her class during the shooting. Then he casually strolls out with other students after the shooting is over. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/os-not-real-news-school-shooting-student-20180330-story.html "Hogg huddled with other students during the shooting, using his cellphone to record those around him. Ashley Kurth, a culinary arts teacher, said she taught Hogg when he was a freshman. When the shooting erupted, Kurth sheltered students who had been outside her classroom. "I physically grabbed David by the arm and pulled him into my room," she said. "It is extremely frustrating the kind of information that is being put out there." In an interview with Vox published Feb. 20, Hogg specified the time of his bike ride: 6 p.m., after the shooting."

    So I guess the footage of him walking out of the school with all the other students at the 2:30 mark in this video is fake. http://www.latimes.com/visuals/video/95939817-132.html

    bullied' by his classmates and coaches.

    "One of Pagourtzis' classmates who died in the attack, Shana Fisher, "had 4 months of problems from this boy," her mother, Sadie Rodriguez, wrote in a private message to the Los Angeles Times on Facebook. "He kept making advances on her and she repeatedly told him no." Pagourtzis continued to get more aggressive, and she finally stood up to him and embarrassed him in class, Rodriguez said. "A week later he opens fire on everyone he didn't like," she wrote. "Shana being the first one." Rodriguez didn't say how she knew her daughter was the first victim. The gunman repeatedly taunted students during the attack, according to another harrowing account posted to Facebook by one survivor's mother. After scrambling to escape the shooter's blasts in the art room, Isabelle Van Ness, covered in dust from rounds hitting her classroom walls, could hear the shooter in a next-door classroom yelling, "Woo hoo!" while shooting, according to her mother, Deedra Van Ness. "The gunman then comes back into their room and they hear him saying … are you dead? Then more shots are fired," Deedra Van Ness wrote. "By this time, cell phones all over the classroom are ringing and he's taunting the kids in the closet asking them … do you think it's for you? do you want to come answer it? Then he proceeds to fire more bullets into the closet and tries to get in."" http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-texas-shooter-20180519-story.html

    The Official Robert Mueller is comin! Thread

    Neither article says Mueller's team found nothing. They just state that Giuliani says that Mueller's team said they can't indict a President. Mueller could write a report detailing what crimes if any Trump did. Then the House of Representatives could take up Articles of Impeachment. If at least one article gets a majority vote, the President is Impeached which means he is indicted for that article. Then we have a trial in the Senate overseen by the Chief Justice John Roberts. Then if 2/3rd of the Senate find him guilty, Pence is the new President. The House Intel Committee didn't want to find anything. The Senate Intel Committee had the same info and said today that Russia interfered in the election to help Trump and hurt Clinton and that the Kremlin used the NRA as a back channel to Moscow and may have funded the Trump campaign.

    Wrong! "It would then be up to the House of Representatives to decide what to do about with the special counsel's report -- and whether to pursue articles of impeachment."
