This is an interesting idea, but what happens when China balks—as it surely will? Is this just an excuse to kill New START or its replacement? The upside is that Trump seems to truly believe arms races are stupid. The downside is that Bolton disagrees. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/trump-orders-staff-to-prepare-arms-control-push-with-russia-and-china/2019/04/25/c7f05e04-6076-11e9-9412-daf3d2e67c6d_story.html
Newer START

> Biden says he asked Obama not to endorse him
Joe uh
What kind of vote you going for there buddy?
 
Ash
1:08 AM
Well, considering his Maga but totally not maga statement...i am super not sure
 
Ash
1:19 AM
This is not good: mtlblog.com/news/ca/qc/…
 
Oh dear :(
 
1:41 AM
@TimStone the 2016 "we are better than this guy's" moderate republican strat
 
2:20 AM
took a small news break and everything is still shitty, yay
 
3:01 AM
JUST IN: Trump says his accusations of Obama wiretapping were based "on a little bit of a hunch" http://hill.cm/Q7h7JL4
> "Now I understand why, because they thought two years ago when I said that just on a little bit of a hunch and a little bit of wisdom maybe, it blew up because they thought maybe I was wise to them," Trump continued. "Or they were caught. And that’s why. If they weren’t doing anything wrong it would've just gotten by, nobody would’ve cared about it."
funny how that last quote explains all his bitching about the Mueller Probe

4:16 AM
Question: "How does it feel to be the front runner?" Joe Biden: "I tell you what, the issue is going to be who -- not only who can win this but who's the best person to lead the country and that's what it's going to be all about. It's going to be the voters to decide that." https://t.co/kKUHmYqq0d
In the end it all comes down to whoever has the most votes nods sagely
This is going to be like Howard Schultz except he'll win for some reason
 
4:36 AM
This man has been arrested by police after allegedly scuffling with a female reporter and photographer covering a press conference held by controversial far-right Senator Fraser Anning http://bit.ly/2voU21I
for christ sake this guy has the worst supporters
> Some of the supporters took a dislike to the line of questioning [Eliza Barr] took with Senator Anning.

When the conference ended they proceeded to follow her out of the park.

When the News Corp photographer moved in front of Barr and photographed the Senator Anning supporters, he was allegedly attacked.
 
5:02 AM
@TimStone how is he the front runner? he just announced
 
 
2 hours later…
7:31 AM
@GodEmperorDune Biden has been rumoured to want to run for a long time, he only just confirmed it and immediately shot way up in the rankings because he stands a good chance of beating Trump
People know him, he was VP under Obama and longtime Rhode Island senator
 
 
4 hours later…
11:19 AM
@GodEmperorDune If you listen to Nate Silver he's supposedly an underdog, which also seems…not…right 🤔
 
11:49 AM
Holy shit :(
> As police entered the residence, the wife of one of the brothers, Fatima Ibrahim, detonated yet another bomb, killing herself, the child she was pregnant with, three other young children and three Sri Lankan police officers.
So much tragedy
 
12:04 PM
Religion was a mistake
 
12:30 PM
Radicalism of any form is a mistake
 
Unless you're catching some sick waves, dude.
 
12:44 PM
@TimStone Biden is leading in the endorsement race. I'm sure Nate will change his tune when he reads his own site.
 
I think he was already Very Online about this on Twitter
For whatever reason
 
god dammit
it's his turn yass king
we're all going to die
they haven't learned
it was russia's fault anyway
so it wasn't anybody's fault
kill me
 
"oh now that everyone knows that trump is horrible, they'll totally not vote for him this time" - the dnc (x∞)
 
@TimStone I think the name recognition is doing a lot of work, along with early 2010s The Onion, but I'm, hoping the candidate who is actively "fuck millenials", wrote the 1994 crime bill, etc will just not have non-establishment or non-republican support
because he will lose by 538 electoral votes
if nominated
there's not a doubt in my mind
there's a very short list of "people I won't be mad about being the nominee" (like 3) but joe is at the top of the list of "people I would be mad about being the nominee"
 
1:04 PM
@Unionhawk I go the other way, I think he'd probably win but not for any reason that would be a redeeming quality of the electorate
Better things aren't possible being an acceptable result of checking a box on a Tuesday in November for a lot of people
 
idk we saw the flip side of that in 2016, that being not good enough to bother
 
I'm not sure that's true, those type of people actively hate Clinton in a way they don't with Biden despite like, having all sorts of reasons to?
 
It might be slightly more difficult given Trump's actions while in office, but I still think it's far too easy for Biden to be pulled into the same "well, they're really just equally terrible" trap that happened in 2016.
 
Everything is really, really dumb, is the gist
 
@TimStone The missing part is iron.
white ---fe---male
I could've sworn that SE supported partial Markdown.
 
1:10 PM
@Yuuki right, it's the guy in office now, or the guy who somehow managed to be on the wrong side of history in everything in his entire senate career
which is honestly incredible
 
Oh yeah, it's for everything not strikethrough.
I keep forgetting.
 
The important part of history is to ignore it completely and never learn from your mistakes
 
whatever america's coming back like we used to be or whatever
awoouu
 
@TimStone I mean, I think that's what "Make America Great Again" means.
 
Counterpoint Again acknowledges that the past exists, which it certainly does not!
Anyway we should definitely not elect Biden, obviously
 
1:13 PM
@TimStone I mean, that's a distant second to "we should not nominate Biden".
Actually a third, given that the definite number one is "we should not elect Trump (again)".
 
That was more what I meant, right
Biden shouldn't even be running and it's crazy he thought he should
Like with all of the options for "uninspiring" already in the race
 
I mean, it's not crazy that he thinks he should.
 
It's crazy anyone wants to run for President tbh
 
After all, the part of the core definition of privilege is an inability to read the room.
 
Honest question: out of the 20 current candidates, is there anyone who TRULY stands out to you as "yeah, they're good president material"?
 
1:18 PM
@Nzall For me personally, Warren
 
> "Trump should boldly repeal a bad banking law: the CRA" via @TheHillOpinion
 
Although she's not young either.
 
@Nzall Giant Meteor.
 
@Nzall my list of "won't be mad" is Gravel, Sanders, Warren, but "won't be mad" is the best I can say about any of those 3
 
1:22 PM
@Yuuki Meh, I think after 4 years of Trump, the world has had enough destructive presidencies
 
and only 2 of those have like, any chance
which is fine
 
Ash
@Nzall you'd be surprised...
 
@TimStone yeah I have a strong distrust of anyone who seeks power
 
@Yuuki Giant Meteor for eternal 2016's second president!
 
Also, do you guys think the Impeachment stands a chance at all? Like, they need to convince like a dozen Republicans of joining their side
 
1:24 PM
no
because they also need to convince several dozen democrats to do the thing
which won't happen either
 
Broke: The Mueller Report is an urge to Impeach 45;
Woke: The Mueller Report shows evidence to invoke the 25th
> Psychiatrists Say Mueller Report Offers More Proof Of Trump’s Mental Decline
Trying to fire Mueller despite the clear downside shows the president can’t rationally process risk, a new study states.
 
Bespoke: The Mueller Report doesn't rule out the existence of the pee tape.
 
Bespoke: The Mueller Report shows the need for a time machine
 
2:11 PM
Scary shit, this is getting out of hand
 
2:39 PM
Nine doses of naloxone for one case
 
3:14 PM
STORY: Maria Butina has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for conspiring to act as an agent for the Russian government (she'll get credit for 9 mos. she's already served). Judge: "This was not a simple misunderstanding by an overeager foreign student." https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/zoetillman/maria-butina-sentenced-russia-agent-nra
My understanding is that The Discourse is quite dumb today and we will have no part in it
When Tucker Carlson was losing advertisers & Jeanine Pirro was suspended for her anti-Muslim comments, Trump personally called Rupert Murdoch to pressure him to stand with the incendiary hosts. Murdoch then pressured executives to the President's liking. https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/04/fox-and-friends-will-be-next-lachlan-murdoch-is-in-a-trump-trap?verso=true#~o
 
is this about his 404 page featuring him with an ice cream cone and a spoon because I can not stop thinking about that image
wait
I mean,
wait I'm dumb but even more no
 
3:30 PM
It checks out geographically it's just that it's really the opposite
So now he lost Pennsylvania
 
My brain autocorrected it to be reversed which at least kind of makes sense
 
Philly will accept New Castle County being a suburb of Philly but not the other way around, that simply would not stand
 
I'm not sure that checks out even, but it's at least closer
like, from what I can tell that would be like saying Dayton is a suburb of Cincinnati
 
> Audible releases Mueller report
 
that sounds awful, thanks
 
3:34 PM
NRA executive Chris Cox speaking before Trump: "They hate us. They hate our trucks, they hate our plastic straws, and yes, they hate our guns. But what they fail to understand is we don't give a damn what they think."
 
just the idea that one would seek that out for their commute
 
chuckles in both sidesism
He followed up with "REAL America" blah blah
 
3:54 PM
@Nzall Late reply, but for the most part, I'm incredibly cynical about politics. I don't vote for who I think will do a good job; none of them will. I vote for who I think will do the least damage.
 
@GodEmperorDune Because they've been including him in all the polls.
@TimStone Not sure what source you saw but Biden's in tier 1 I believe with Harris
@Yuuki You needed a space in there
 
4:15 PM
@MBraedley Nate literally wrote a "Why he's pretty much the front runner article" so
Easier to get mad about people being dumb on Twitter if you just say that
Also easier to have good mental health if you just skip the hellsite i dunno :P
 
@puzzlepiece87 You don't need a space for other Markdown styles like italics or bold, I don't think.
It's specifically strikethrough that works differently.
 
strike-through is special
 
@Yuuki Ah, that's weird.
 
4:32 PM
@TimStone plastic straws?? Lol?
That's not a gun issue
😅
 
Plastic straws -> environment -> hippies -> those durn liberals
I mean, trucks isn't a gun issue either.
 
 
1 hour later…
5:55 PM
True I guess but that's something I'm less surprised the NRA cares about
 
6:18 PM
They follow the same logic though. Trucks -> environment -> hippies -> those durn liberals
 
7:07 PM
@TimStone "And that's why we never stop talking about what they think! Because we don't care!"
 
7:57 PM
Mailing this to the President today: Dear @realDonaldTrump, it took someone correcting me, educating me, and showing me how wrong I was to admire and romanticize Robert E. Lee. I’m sending you this in hopes I can pay it forward. Sincerely, Rob Lee
Right-wing personalities Tommy Robinson and Sargon of Akkad have been banned from Twitter for months, but were convinced that if they ran for office Twitter couldn't delete their campaign accounts. Well... https://twitter.com/PrisonPlanet/status/1121824585735987200
 
@GodEmperorDune lmao
 
oh yeah, to save everyone a click through, new accounts got suspended for ban evasion
 
8:13 PM
Oh I didn't realize Carl got banned again
good
 
Just incredibly galaxy brained to think that if Twitter actually bothered to do something about you they'd be beaten by a technicality they were just using as an excuse elsewhere
 
supporters are claiming that the official accounts were not run by the banned people and therefore its not ban evasion
 
do you think they probably did @verified I am a politician and that's why they even noticed lol
 
It would not surprise me a single bit
 
8:33 PM
oh dang they must have done a batch of ban evasion bans
RIP

BREAKING: Sunnyvale police say the man who allegedly tried to kill 8 people by running them down with his car in a busy intersection — and reportedly thanked Jesus after the crash — targeted the people because he thought they were Muslims. https://www.sfchronicle.com/crime/article/Driver-in-Sunnyvale-crash-that-injured-8-was-on-13795974.php
 
Ash
10:10 PM
.....*screams into the void*
 
@GodEmperorDune Shit, that's like a mile from where I live
 
@murgatroid99 glad you're safe
 
Ash
I hate this because this is not how Christianity works, I hate this becayse of course they're going to try to stick some sort of mental illness thing on this. Like no, you are just a terrible person, full stop.
sighs
 
@Ash 100% this
 
Ash
I have had it up to here gestures above their head with this stuff. They better not go "oh God told him to do it" like no way no how get out
Sorry, I am a little testy for some reason
 
 
1 hour later…
11:27 PM
lol the TurboTax free file compliant page is noindex nofollow
