    I'm putting Joe Biden and his Administration in the 'Bunch of Cunts' bucket whilst they support the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians.

    He needs to sort this shit out, or he's going to disenfranchise a lot of progressive folk.

    Here's some more shit.

    https://www.usnews.com/news/world/ar...israel-sources

    Israel is running out of weapons and we want more money maybe so... fuck those Palestinians? Fuck the children, and kill the medics and media.

    President Joe Biden's administration approved the potential sale of $735 million in precision-guided weapons to Israel, and congressional sources said on Monday that U.S. lawmakers were not expected to object to the deal despite violence between Israel and Palestinian militants.

    Three congressional aides said Congress was officially notified of the intended commercial sale on May 5, as part of the regular review process before major foreign weapons sales agreements can go ahead.

    The sale was first reported by the Washington Post.

    Congress was informed of the planned sale in April, as part of the normal informal review process before of the formal notification on May 5. Under U.S. law, the formal notification opens up a 15-day window for Congress to object to the sale, which is not expected despite the ongoing violence.

    The sale of Joint Direct Attack Munitions, or JDAMs, made by Boeing Co, was considered routine at the time, before the start last week of the fiercest hostilities in the region in years.

    There were no objections at the time by the Democratic and Republican leaders of the congressional foreign affairs committees that review such sales, aides said.

    Asked for comment, a State Department spokesperson noted that the department is restricted under federal law and regulations from publicly commenting on or confirming details of licensing activity related to direct commercial sales like the JDAMs agreement.

    "We remain deeply concerned about the current violence and are working towards achieving a sustainable calm," the spokesperson said.
    "We are deeply concerned about this violence... however... $735mn though..."

    In a departure from typical, "time-honored" strategy, Republicans are seemingly gearing up for a 2022 midterm election in which the Democratic president is not framed as the main villain, according to more than 25 GOP strategists and party officials interviewed by Politico. Instead, the GOP reportedly plans to group President Biden in with "more polarizing figures" — like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (R-N.Y.)

    This shift in game plan and messaging is attributed most notably to Biden's current classification as a "less-than-ideal foil," Politico writes.

    The right has long struggled to effectively demonize the president — throughout the election, attempts to "depict him as mentally unfit or corrupt" fell mostly "flat," Politico writes.

    Not to mention Biden is, well...a bit boring. "There are bigger bogeymen," said Republican strategist John Thomas, "We don't need [Biden] as our No. 1 foil" in 2022. Said another strategist to Politico: "It's less about vilifying one person." Notably, the president is already absent from ads seeking to attack "vulnerable" Senate Democrats, like Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.).
    This is actually a good thing. Biden is largely inoffensive and despite their best efforts during the 2020 election to paint him as a socialist that didn't stick, so they're having to move away from the time-honored tradition of attacking the current president going into the midterms.

    Joe's fairly popular, Democratic policies passed and being worked on are fairly popular. The best they can hope for is to tie AOC or Pelosi to every Democrat running and hope that works.

    To wit - https://www.politico.com/news/2021/0...29&nlid=630318

    “Biden is not a good bad guy,” said Ed Rogers, the veteran Republican lobbyist and strategist. “Obama was a haughty professor … The Uncle Joe life story that he has — the tragedy, the losses, the obvious empathy the man has, I think that’s all legit. So, it’s hard to demonize him.

    not really related to Biden but the SCOTUS is about to hear the closest attempt to curtail abortion rights in years. however the timeline giving the deliberation seems to be well into 2022, months before the midterms. if the Dem's don't run with this as a wedge issue then god help us all.

    So you're basically saying every presidential election is a referendum on the supreme court?


    Well then, this take didnt age well...




    Again; vote withholding or voting for crank candidates gets you a 6-3 conservative court. People saying otherwise are just grifting you.

    that was one of the main goals of repubs for stacking the SC.

    It's not about money, it's about geopolitics. Israel's going to have to do a whole lot worse before the US even considers abandoning their strongest position in the ME. And Netanyahu knows that. And let's not forget that Hamas is not even close to a better option:

    Hamas, as its name (Islamic Resistance Movement) implies, aims to liberate Palestine from the Israeli occupation, and transform the country into an Islamic state.
    It's more like 'we're deeply concerned about this violence, but the interests of the US supercede the interests of ISIS 0.5'.

    $235m in aid is being sent to Palestine anyway, so if anything the US is taking a position of relative neutrality.

    nothing other than them having to somehow get a majority in both the house, senate and oval office. which, I'm not exactly sure how they are ever going to be in that position again with abortion rights being the big issue that will get people to go to the polls. this screams of short term victory but long term disaster for the GOP.

    Republicans just have to pass bills that block people from voting, allows them to throw out the counters and replace them with stooges who will throw out more and replace the Secretary of State certifying them with unelected stooges who can refuse to do so and throw them out in the states they control and which will allow them to grind everything to a halt while blaming the Democrats for it which too many will be dumb enough to believe and make sure to pass those same suppression laws in any new state they get power in immediately even if for a single 2 year term and they will have it even if 80% of the population dislike their stuff.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    Biden is an absolute titwank as far as Israel/Palestine is concerned. He has no backbone.

    but those bills also hurt the GOP's voting base, like the one in Florida recently that's set to disenfranchise 35% of republican voters in a state that swings either way by a razor thin margin. the only thing keeping the republicans relevant is grasping at a hope and chance that Trump makes a triumphant return.

    Even if it hurts the Republican voter turnout by 35% it is still a net benefit if it allows them to hurt the Democrats far worse and allows them to throw out the results and refuse to certify if they lose.


    Hurting themselves at the ballot is a small price to blow the rest out of the running entirely.

    We underestimated the GOP. This will definitely turned the tide for the GOP.

    Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt Blames Biden for Chick-Fil-A Sauce Shortage in Re-Election Fundraising Appeal

    In his latest re-election fundraising appeal, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt blamed President Joe Biden's policies for Chick-fil-A's sauce shortage.

    "Chick-fil-A has a sauce shortage. And you want to know why? Because of Joe Biden's radical liberal policies," the latest message from Stitt's campaign says.


    That's a winner.

    The competition to see who can be the most retarded Republican politician is genuinely impressive.

    Like, I didn't know Biden had a "Chick-Fil-A Sauce" nob in the Oval Office where he could just like, shut down the pipes and deprive Real Americans(tm) of their Constitutionally protected right to have dipping sauce for their chicken nuggies.

    A minority can't rule a majority forever. The GOP is a flailing, dying animal that currently lashing however it can.

    They've been passing voter restriction bills for decades, and they still lose. This trend isn't going to stop, short of them throwing off the mask completely and trying a coup (again). Which honestly, I'm not sure how long that would last.

    Rafael Cruz did this last week, I'm sure this is going to be the big scandal of 2021.

    Follow-up on previous post: Biden backs House probe into murderous insurrection within seconds of the House GOP announcing their opposition.

    "Of course we support any serious investigation into domestic terrorism," Biden didn't say but probably could have with a straight face. "I mean, who wouldn't want it? Other than the criminal terrorists behind it, of course. AHWINK."
