To be clear, I didn't post that to call anyone on the forum out. I haven't seen anyone on CP I'd call an extreme leftist. I do agree with the effects that Obama pointed out in the video though.

Interesting interview with former Republican and Tea Party member, Joe Walsh with a number of his takes including, MTG being the real speaker of the House predicting she will continue to pressure Mcarthy on certain things implying her power behind the scenes, Republicans in the House WILL investigate Hunter Biden but will NOT impeach Joe and less of a prediction but chimes in on DeSantis, saying he knows him well and he doesn't have the charisma and lacks the ability to think on his feet to de-throne Trump.

How can Hunter Biden be impeached? Don't you need to hold office for that? Honest question, I don't know the answer.

My bad, I mistyped. His prediction is they will investigate Hunter Biden and his laptop and then commented later on that he predicts they will NOT impeach Joe Biden.

My position that anyone who litters should be shot on sight is not extreme enough for you?

Big talk from a guy that indiscriminately murdered civilians with drones for 8 years.

Jan 6 committee has unveiled their criminal referrals against Trump. Four charges.

Quote:
The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol unveiled criminal referrals on Monday targeting former President Trump, recommending that the Department of Justice investigate the ex-president for inciting an insurrection, conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to make a false statement and obstruction of an official proceeding.

The referrals mark the culmination of the committee’s 18-month probe of the Jan. 6 attack and the role Trump played before, during and after the riot. They are a crescendo in the panel’s central case that Trump was at the center of a conspiracy to keep himself in power.

Investigators on the committee said they decided on criminal referrals against Trump based on sufficient evidence showing that he violated various statutes: inciting, assisting, or aiding and comforting an insurrection; obstructing an official proceeding; conspiracy to defraud the United States; conspiracy to make a false statement; and other conspiracy statutes.

The left and right being enemies is an illusion, they are both arms on the same monster. The left pushes for more gov't restrictions and control, then the right comes in and cuts out any part of those that actually helps regular people. It's a beautiful system that funnels money from the bottom to the top like crazy.

I think Dark Brandon will pardon him, just to confuse some people, alienate others and anger everyone. If this were a soap opera , isnít that what would happen? After all, US politics is more about the drama than governing a country

And nihilists like you try to convince people that the system is hopelessly broken, so why bother voting? Then the Republicans get power and make things even worse so you can say "told you so!"

I think I hate the "both sides" people even more than the full blown MAGA-tards

The House Ways and Means Committee voted to release six years' worth of Trump's tax returns.

They said that the presidential audit system means the president's tax returns are audited every year as standard practice, but they found no evidence of an audit in 2017, 2018, and 2019.

I don't really like the idea of just releasing them just because.. ideally they'd go over them but there's no time left; it's now or never and I guess they chose now and will let everyone else go through them.

Yeah they either had to "leak" or they had to officially release them as they're about to lose control of the House, so like you said, no time left and it's now or never.

Unbelievably, Trump's NFT's are already dropping in price:

Quote:
Trump’s digital trading cards, which are minted on Ethereum scaling network Polygon, peaked on Saturday, December 17 with over $3.5 million worth of trading volume, per data from CryptoSlam. Sales price rose even higher on Sunday, with the NFTsselling for an average of just over $680 apiece, although total volume fell to nearly $1.95 million for the day.

On Monday, however, day-over-day trading dropped 57% to about $836,000 worth of ETH, with the average sale price falling to about $466. Today, the cheapest available Trump NFT up for sale on leading marketplace OpenSea is listed at just 0.21 ETH, or about $255.

A judge has officially dismissed Kari Lake's accusations of a fraudulent election in Arizona. Don't think she ever expected to win though. My guess is she's been going hard on the messaging of a fraudulent election to get Trump's and MAGA's attention so she is chosen to be Trump's running mate when he announces.

I always thought these were just a means to launder money to trump without oversite and the rubes buying them just provide cover for the rest of the transactions. Maybe im being conspiratorial but I have trouble believing that many people are that stupid.

Lake said she's going to appeal the ruling. Look for her to grift more money from her supporters to pay her legal bills.

Smart of the Dems to get the last trillion out before the adults take over the house.
