I see it's deja vu all over again on this thread. I'm reminded of when I went to the Nixon Presidential Library, where the display on Watergate described it as "an illegitimate attempt to overthrow a democratically elected president". Of course, back then enough Republicans had a spine and ushered Nixon to the door before he could be impeached by the House. Not so Trump, unfortunately. I hope these spineless Republicans pay a price at the ballot box this fall but they probably won't. After all, Supreme Court justices...

Oh, and when I went back to that library after Nixon's death, the Watergate display had changed to remove it from the alternate universe it had been in.

Talking of spineless Republicans, where's Ben Sasse been for the last four years?

“The United States now regularly sells out our allies under his leadership, the way he treats women, spends like a drunken sailor,” Sasse continued. “The ways I criticize President Obama for that kind of spending; I’ve criticized President Trump for as well. He mocks evangelicals behind closed doors. His family has treated the presidency like a business opportunity. He’s flirted with white supremacists.” ...

Next step - Trump was suspected by some of criminal behaviour, in particular of obstruction of justice. Should potential criminal behaviour not be investigated?
No, we didn't agree.

Yeah sure criminal behaviour should be investigated - as most likely a lot will be over the coming months.

Hmmm it seems like we have two Trump threads going here.

So what happened with sleepy Joe? Oh yeah, he kind of indicated at his Town Hall that he is looking to pack the courts if he wins.

I'm all for balancing out the court packing that Republicans have done by refusing Obama's Supreme Court nominee, and those of many other judges, even a hearing.

Just for the sake of the audience who may have missed it, would you mind clarifying that you were wrong in a matter of fact here - that Trump was, indeed, impeached?

Why do you use ideas and words created by the Trump campaign? Don't you think you might be a victim of propaganda?

And, since you didn't answer the question, don't you think that potential criminal behaviour should be investigated?

Not to mention them rushing around like headless chickens to confirm Coney before the election.

Opinions of the US in Canada have dropped to nearly 40 year lows.

https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/canadi...rvey-1.5146519


Only 6 in 10 Canadian's currently consider the US a friend, down from 9 in 10 during Obama's first term.

63% of Canadian's support Joe Biden.

But then when the US President is calling Canada a national security threat more than once, that tends not to make Canadian's happy.

Of course we'll deny it, it's bullshit.... and I've already given you links disproving your claims...

Source, please? Something verifiable that states that he's looking to pack the court.

'Kind of indicated' is vague and not fact..

Is she? She's been a judge for 3 years, after being a clerk for 15 years.... What experience will she bring to the SC, other than being Trump's puppet, and Trump got her the job she currently has, so she owes him..

So you are still saying that somebody tried to overturn the 2016 election results? You'll have to provide some facts then. I don't recall anyone disputing the results of the election.

What do you think of the FBI investigating possible Russian interference by fabricating the Biden/Ukraine email story in the Post? You know, the one now being pushed out by Giuliani, Trump and doubtless some of your favourite online sources?

What if Donald trump's base is nowhere near as big as perceived?


I wouldn't get to confident. But maybe Trump is bout to destroy the GOP for a while, who will run for the Republicans in 2024?
