Trump loses and America wins. We come away with what will likely be a solid left of center SCOTUS for at least a generation or more, a very possible Democratic majority in the Senate, the GOP grip on the House severely weakened and a second major party that will have to shun the influence of it's extreme elements if it wants to survive as a major party. We could actually start functioning much better as a nation again.Donald gets to go on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC and continue to draw attention to himself, which is, I'm convinced, all he's really after and whine about how he was cheated.

Not quite sure how it will play out yet but this Trump candidacy could be a boon for the country.

No question about that, McG. Citizens United has enabled wealthy conservative Republicans to go into blue states like North Carolina, and red states as well, and buy up the state legislatures and thereby control the makeup of voting districts (i.e. gerrymandering) and enact voter suppression legislation directed at minority voters, much of which has been recently declared unconstitutional by appellate courts.

CU will very likely be overturned by the Supreme Court if a President Clinton, who strongly advocates its repeal, is able to fill seats on the bench. If a President Trump (shudder) appoints the kind of conservative justices he claims he will, CU will stand. Getting that big, dark money out of elections is the first step to reform.

There was no irony in my statement. This is what I said (and it would be great if folks could address it, because it is important):

I've always rejected the "Nader nag" - the meme that says if you vote your conscience you're helping to elect the enemy - but this time it's different.

It's different because during the next president's first term, three Supreme Court justices are likely to retire or die. A president is only in office for eight years at most, but SC justices are appointed (by the president) for life. This, and only this, is the reason why progressives MUST help elect HC.


As for that adjective: Clinton is a career politician who has long since sold out her youthful idealism. She is a hawk and a Wall Street shill. It is odious to me to see her courting Bernie Sanders supporters by flip-flopping on long-held stances on things like the TPP and education costs. There is no doubt in my mind that, once elected, she will flop right back. Yes, she is qualified, intelligent and hard-working, but that's not enough to earn my respect.

It isn't idealism that's youthful, as demonstrated by the likes of Noam Chomsky, Jeremy Corbyn, Pete Seeger, Bernie Sanders and a lot more. It's naivete, maybe. People get more pragmatic. That can work different ways.

Sometimes getting older can mean getting more impatient rather than settling down and accepting that defeat is inevitable.

Give Hillary a strong mandate, and an effective Sandersite contingent breathing down her neck, and who knows how the flip-flops might turn out? Franklin Roosevelt had never been all that "progressive" till he found himself in a situation where radical action became realistic politics.

Iraq, Libya and Syria were not just small mishaps...they were the biggest Foreign Policy disasters ever and Mrs Clinton has been heavily involved in ALL of them, even Mr Bush's war as her support helped sway American Democrats including many on this forum.

Mr trump's words on nuclear weapons were in fact a means of opening the argument as to whether these weapons will ever be used.....we vshould ALL be working towards the banning of these weapons in every country.......interesting article

Donuel, not sure why the question arose, but your assertion that 10% of US presidents have either been assassinated or "narrowly escaped" assassination--I dont know how one statistically defines the latter--is exceedingly conservative. Almost 10% of US presidents have been assassinated, period--4 of 43 men who have held the office.

Wikipedia, fwiw, identifies "over 20" known assassination attempts or serious plots. This includes five against Obama, four against Clinton, the shooting of Reagan of course, and the hapless Ford's being shot at twice in a single month. Every president since Hoover is listed as the object of at least one assassination plot except for LBJ--personal (un)popularity doesnt seem to be a factor, oddly enough.

Then of course the shooting of presidential candidates Robert Kennedy and George Wallace--I apologize for lumping them together--are part of contemporary electoral history as well.

It is beyond reprehensible for anyone with influence to kinda, sorta, kid around that maybe someone oughtta shoot their political opponent, let alone suggest it without qualifiers then deny meaning what they said.

Secret Ledger in Ukraine Lists Cash for Donald Trump's Campaign Chief

By ANDREW E. KRAMER, MIKE McINTIRE and BARRY MEIERAUG. 14, 2016


Records show $12.7 million in undisclosed cash payments designated for Paul Manafort, the campaign manager for Donald J. Trump, from a pro-Russian political party from 2007 to 2012.

Investigators assert that the disbursements were part of a corrupt network they say was used to loot Ukrainian assets and influence elections.

Up above, TIA challenged Ake with a link to a 2003 thread titled BS: US & British war plans blocked. People wondered about the relevance of the link, since no posts from Akenaton appeared in the thread. Ake has stated many times that Mudcatters supported the invasion of Iraq and are now whistling a different tune.

The 2003 thread proves that a large number of Mudcatters opposed the invasion of Iraq at the time it was happening - not as an afterthought like Mr. Trump. At the time and still today, I couldn't understand why so many Democratic members of Congress supported Bush's dirty little war.

There are a large number of posts in that thread, but only a handful of committed posters, some totally opposed, some who have doubts, and some who are in favour....the majority are sitting on the fence.
I certainly don't think that you can make a valid claim that "most of the membership" were opposed......"most of the membership" couldn't be bothered to join the discussion.

I remember being involved in later threads where many justified the war by claiming that Saddam was a "bad man"

The consequences of the war and the attack on Libya, which we see today(the spread of Islamic Fundamentalism), were recognised by only a very few. In Fact very few here will even now condemn the Obama Clinton govt for its disgraceful and idiotic actions in Libya.

Ake, there was serious opposition to the invasion of Iraq on the part of most folkies I know. Say what you want, but them's the facts. I'm sure a poll here in 2003 would show overwhelmingly strong opposition to the Bush invasion of Iraq. And at the time, we had many more active Mudcatters than we have now.

The Libya thing was different. It was tied to the "Arab Spring," and many of us had the hope that multiple Arab nations would end years of tyranny - and Libya was viewed as the worst of those tyrannies. Turns out our hopes were misguided.

I don't know what Europeans thought at the time of the Arab Spring, but we here in the U.S. believed that U.S. military intervention was minimal and was intended to support freedom-seeking rebels who would otherwise be murdered by Ghaddafi.

Now we're stuck in a worse conundrum in Syria, where at lest three sides are fighting. Many voices are calling for the U.S. to intervene and stop the slaughter, but which side should we join? So, we're hesitant in Syria and are condemned for it; and we intervened in Libya and are condemned for that, too.

There are no easy answers, except for those who see in hindsight.

Life's too short to analyse the posts in those Iraq threads.

Christian Terrorism?

Two days after an imam and his assistant were gunned down after afternoon prayers in Queens, city officials sought to reassure members of the Muslim community in New York on Monday, saying that a "strong person of interest" was in police custody.

"I don't feel safe anymore," Mr. Hossain said. "All of this hatred being propagated, especially by Donald Trump, it puts us at risk. People sometimes pass me on the street and call me Bin Laden. I just try to keep my head down and keep walking."

Mr McGrath, most of the liberals here supported the removal of Saddam in the cause of "freedom and democracy".....how was that to be accomplished without the policy of military intervention?
The two issues are indivisible.

President Bush's biggest negative where most of the Mudcat membership were concerned was that he was a Republican, a fiscal conservative.

As we learned in the UK a "liberal" govt are just as likely to go to war in what they see as their own interests as a conservative one.

I'd question whether that is actually true, aken. It just doesn't match with my memory, nor with the cursory look at a couple old threads I've made.

I'm pretty sure that the main arguments I had at that time with people who favoured the invasion (and there were a good few) were with people who would not see themselves, or be seen by others, as "liberal". In real life too - about the only "liberal" I can remember talking to who favoured the war was our then Labour MP.

I'm sure there were plenty of people indicating they didn't like Saddam, but that's not the same thing. And of course, in both the UK and the US the supposedly "liberal" opposition was mostly in favour of the war. (Not the Liberal Party itself, which makes for confusing terminology.)

"Under those eight years, before Obama came along, we didn't have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States. They all started when Clinton and Obama got into office," Giuliani said ahead of Trump's speech on national security.


(he sounds rather like Ake.....)

Ironic that Guiliani should forget 9/11 when he invoked it ad nauseum while trying to launch a national political career that never went anywhere.

Two interesting articles on HC:

Published in the current Rolling Stone, whose publisher endorsed Hillary over Bernie some time ago, thereby removing any lingering vestiges of the magazine's progressive past, Sean Wilentz's puff piece of a love-fest made me wonder if he's angling for a blowjob (or any kind of job) from Hillary.

Today's New York Times column by Maureen Dowd is by contrast a more clear-eyed reminder of who the Clintons really are - Washington insiders and Wall Street darlings who offer clear proof that there isn't much of a difference between the two parties where ordinary working Americans are concerned.

Please, please, not THAT old lie again! You and Ake should team up in a vaudeville act; you both have that same bug up your a**.

There may only be a few inches difference between parties, but those inches can mean the difference between life and death.

Oh, and Michael:

In 2014, an analysis of 21 years of Maureeen Dowd's Columns about Hillary Clinton entitled 'The Numbers Behind Maureen Dowd's 21-Year Long Campaign Against Hillary Clinton', found that of the 195 columns by Dowd since November 1993 containing significant mentions of Clinton, 72 percent (141 columns) were negative towards Clinton. [43] Numerous other commentators have criticized Dowd for having an obsession with Bill and especially Hillary Clinton.[44][45][46][47][48][49][50][51]
