Until then they are fractured and disjointed with various camps all vying for power and internally competing for the resources of the MSM. You can see the way the traditional media kingmakers want the nomination to trend, but we all know that no matter who officially gets nod --- the MSM will slavishly support and defend that person with literal religious fervor and zealotry.

I don't think the starting points are the same for POTUS as they were in 2016, which is a net negative for POTUS, IMO. The (D)s are fucking retarded with their rhetoric, but where they make it up is in the sheer numbers of their horde and the absolute unhinged deranged hatred they have of Trump, which will overshadow any and all shortcomings or gaffes of a (D) candidate that somehow slip through the MSM informational picket lines. They simply will not give a shit if Biden goes on another delusional Alzheimer's spree and starts talking about his favorite children's' shampoo odors ---- Orange Man bad and they HAVE to get rid of him. It's that bad.

I am in COMPLETE agreement that if Trump somehow wins again, the left is going to go fucking supernova. Beyond anything we've seen yet. I wouldn't go anywhere near the libshit hives with anything other than 3 mags of jacketed hollow point on my person at any time -- and a long gun under the back seat.
Yeah, that's kinda what I'm getting at- the left will go absolutely batshit when/if Trump wins again, especially if the economy craters under his watch.

Whereas I think bumbling old Joe will attempt to go to the center in a misguided attempt to "mend" our divisions.

Not saying I'd like it- but I do have to think long term- which would be worse. Difficult to discern...

There was an interesting OpEd in the WSJ today regarding Adam Schiff’s definition of impeachable offenses. TL;DR, Schiff is also impeaching Biden, albeit - at least on the surface - unintentionally.

I don’t think Creepy Pedo Joe is going to make it to the end. He’s already done and he knows it but ever the consummate politician he will hang in there until “he can afford an opportunity to a young and charismatic leader that the nation needs”.

Whether that is “Mayor Pete” or Michelle Obama is TBD. Pelosi will pull out all of the cards and continue the slow drip of rambling bullshit she and Crying Chuck have almost perfected over the last six months.

2024 will see Eric Holder running. Maybe AOC. As popular as she might be on Twitter she is not even close to ready yet, IMO. Maybe when there’s no more “United” States of America she can be tapped to become Head Secretary of the Politburo.

I understand that but there are several other Running for President as A republican's.

As A NO PARTY being listed it leaves off a lot of different individual running for an office in the Sacramento County

It' A Catch 22

Altering your behavior because of the fear of shitlib insanity is what the cuckservatives have been doing for decades, the ones who weren't just deliberately whoring.

If the shitlibs go insane, it's a wonderful opportunity for purging. It's like Hue or Fallujah, it scares the weaklings when the savages act up, but for the trigger pullers it's like Christmas. S/F....Ken M

I'm pretty sure that only you and one other person on here would equate the mass slaughter of human beings with "Christmas", and fantasize about the day when America will resemble either Hue or Fallujah. The rest of us will take a pass on that, thanks.

I don't think it is possible to mend the divisions. Better for POTUS to win so he can further stack the courts and likely get another SC justice.

It only takes one side to wage war, choosing to ignore being warred upon is a deliberate, and disgustingly craven, choice. The culture war is real, junkies, incels, doomers etc are just as as much casualties as the guys coming home from the Imperial neo-con wars.

Significant parts of America are already war zones, maybe you should consider that I'm not the one who's wrong. Detroit, St Louis, Benton Harbor, Gary, Akron, Cleveland, Chicago, all have significant portions that look like places I saw in Iraq or other shitholes. S/F....Ken M

I really enjoy all of the insight and agreeing or disagreeing to be had in these threads. I can say from my own experience,(none being in a warzone) that our local environs ( which can vary drastically from one region to another) can sway sentiment and opinions on a said topic. When I was "roaming" the country, I saw and survived in many of the "shitholes" we have to offer, and the bad ones kept my head on a swivel and my mood sour!

Those places have always looked like war zones. The NYC I grew up in was a violent shithole on the verge of complete and utter collapse.

In the late 1960s bombs were going off everywhere in the country as leftist terrorist groups roamed unopposed. Why do I have to keep giving you this history lesson? Things have been worse than they are now many times before.

IDGAF about your incels and black-pill popping freaks. The internet is the worst thing that ever happened to the world- every freak out there can reach out to the other freaks and incubate their fetishes instead of feeling shame for their disgusting yearnings, or lack of ability to get laid, or bizarre political ideas and then finally growing up, getting a decent job and making a life for themselves.

Yeah, You're probably right. In another 4 years the court will be so locked down that AOC wouldn't be able to get a thing passed. But then again there is always the court packing thing...

IMO, it does suck that a justice system which should strive for impartiality needs to be partisan in order to stand a chance against the the shitlibs. I do see a possible way forward as far as winning the culture war and preserving constitutional rights goes. I heard a statistic recently that POTUS has cut down legal immigration from 1 million per year to 200k. While this still isn't enough, it is a great start. Shitlibs tend not to have enough children and the opposite is the case for conservatives. If we can keep immigration down and stack the courts, the shitlibs will eventually die off leaving a window of time open to course correct.

The good news is- the culture war already seems to be turning. I read liberal publications every day, and over the last few months, I have seen tons of "anti-woke" op-eds

Here is probably the best one from the New Republic entitled "The Strange Liberal Backlash to Woke Culture"

https://newrepublic.com/article/155681/strange-liberal-backlash-woke-culture

Even Barack Hussein Obama got in front of a group of college kids recently and chastised them for their wokeness.

The fever will break at some point before it breaks the silent majority who just want to be left alone.

If the President is impeached can he still win an election and just get reelected?

Legally he can so far as I read the Constitution. There is nothing in there that implies that impeachment serves as a bar to a future election. Of course as impeachment is a political action I suppose they could always re-impeach him.

Of course. Impeachment is just a formal charge mechanism, not the end of the story. Despite the whining that he's not getting due process, that comes in the form of a Senate trial which will be on tap soon enough after the impeachment vote.

Articles of impeachment have been put forth...just more grandstanding and hyperbole by the radical left. Is there one shred of evidence in any of these charges? And does anyone on this board actually think POTUS will be convicted? Seriously.

IMO we are finally at the edge of the political cliff with this circus. The left has finally played their hand that if their candidate loses this is the end-state. This is UW at its finest. Fucking unreal.

Let them bring on their last attempt at a coup. They are only solidifying his base and helping the "centrist" decide to pick a side -- many of them POTUS's side -- since the Dems are acting like children. Good for them for revealing their true colors....

...there are no "Shure Things" in this game.

...there are more than enough GOPe members of the Senate that will vote to convict -IF the price is right...

A Senate trial SHOULD be an opportunity to clean house, refer 20-30 of the most egregious law-breakers to DOJ for prosecution, and monkey stomp the Senate & House members and staff that have broken as many laws as the FBI and CIA and NSA and DNI, etc.

It won't be - and I opine that the Senate vote to convict will be closer than many think it will be, perhaps just enough to convict.

"Never happen - those Senators would be out in the next election!!!!!!!"

McCain, Romney, Murkowski, Flake, Collins - they are just the visible manifestation of a deeper cult-of-corruption.

The GOPe would like to see POTUS gone from the stage as much as the DNC. Get a "compliant" Pence in there until they can lose the next election - and then go back to raping the taxpayer while being the "loyal opposition". The GOPe does NOT want to be in charge, they just want access to the piggy bank while they work with the DNC to "Make America CorporoSocialist Finally!"

With a few exceptions, most of the GOP Senate will be just fine voting to convict, losing the next election, and moving on to their well-earned couple of hundred million dollar retirements...

Maybe buy an island, or a place on Martha's Vineyard...
