State Dept. official: China holding 800k Muslim minorities in internment camps

Wow


No way is Trump going to let the Chinese beat him at the discrimination game. He's worked too hard to just give up the title of Scumbag in Chief that easily. I can already see that creepy grin on his face as his new hero, Wang Yi, is sworn in to replace Kirstjen Nielsen at the Department of Homeland Security.

Xinjiang is more so territorial suppression (the community happens to be Muslim)... this is akin to US and PuertoRico

Nancy Pelosi On North Carolina Election Fraud: We Can Refuse To Seat That Congressman

Any newly elected House member can object to the swearing-in of Republican Mark Harris amid his election scandal.




House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that election officials in North Carolina have a few options for responding to what appears to be an egregious case of election fraud in the state’s 9th Congressional District.

Members of Congress have an option, too: They can refuse to seat the current leader of the race, Republican Mark Harris.

“The House still retains the right to decide who is seated. That is one of the powers of the House of Representatives,” Pelosi told reporters. “Any member-elect can object to the seating and swearing-in of another member-elect. We’ll see how that goes.”


THis is why you want Pelosi. She knows how to grind the gears.

I've always felt that the efforts against Pelosi were really just misogyny.

Love what she has done and will do.

are you saying other choices did not know or would not have found this as an option? I mean all you would need to do is go to your colleagues and ask "Hey, does anyone know if we have to seat this scumbag?" And you would have an answer. shoot you might be able to google it, lol. But we'll see what happens. Lets hope it doesnt even have to come to that. Lets hope they get rid if that cheater. They all need to goto jail for that nonsense.

i hear but ask me if a dem should care? the answer is no. never look to see how that nutcase party is treating or demeaning someone from the other side or any otherside. Because it does not matter, those people arent going to vote for a dem anyway. and dont be afraid 'they may come out to vote in droves." So what. come on out. We still have more than you. Thats because the smart move is to work on garnering more votes by getting more dems to come out the house to actually vote and to create more dems to vote when they first get their right to vote as 18 year olds.

wait are you talking about from the guys who started the push or from some of the new comer dems who are also women who were pushing for it as well or at least pushing for the idea that maybe she isnt the look we should have and perhaps there should be new blood up there including another woman?

Like i said, the guys pushing it early on, sure. but there were new comers that wanted some of the new comer women to get a shot as well as new comer men. remember we are having a situation in the dem party where some people want to do things a little different than they have previously been done. and some people dont believe that can happen with an old timer in there. not saying she's that old but she's been around for a minute.

Really? You can’t disagree with some of the policies she has supported and her reluctance to support other policies (like Medicare For All)? You can’t be against corporatism in the Democratic Party, of which she plays a significant role and crave something different? It has to be misogyny?

Plenty of men have similar positions and don't get the amount of flack that she does. I wonder what the difference is . . .

DOW diving another 600 points. Imagine if Trump inherited Obama's 2009 economy. It's chilling to think of.

So Trump's formally an unindicted co-conspirator to campaign finance fraud. That seems like someone who might not be worth keeping around as president.

Trump just had his campaign chairman AND his personal attorney charged for lying about Russian contacts. And he still thinks it's a good day.
He's delusional. And so are his voters.

What's being overlooked is, Trumps tweets are the foundation for his insanity defense when he's indicted.
