Biden widens lead over Trump in Monmouth poll, but Amash may present problem

Amash, a five-term congressman who left the GOP last year amid disagreements with Trump, announced last week that he is exploring a bid for the Libertarian presidential nomination, arguing that voters deserve an option other than Biden or Trump.

Amash received only 5 percent support in the Monmouth poll. But Patrick Murray, the director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, said that if the presidential race is as close as it was in 2016, when Trump beat Democrat Hillary Clinton in the Electoral College, the presence of a third-party candidate on the ballot, like Amash, could prove pivotal.

Libertarians view Amash as potential 2020 game changer for party

Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R), who briefly ran in the 2020 GOP primary against Trump, said he believes Amash would be a viable candidate who could pull voters from the left and the right.

„You look at the fastest growth out there in the political field, it’s on the independent side, it’s not with a traditional Republican or Democrat,” Sanford said.

This Absolute Bullshit Would Not Be Possible Without Propaganda

Joe Biden has been a horrible, evil politician since long before his rape allegations went mainstream and his brain started turning to porridge. If people could gaze with fresh, unmanipulated eyes upon someone who’s dedicated his entire political career to neoliberal exploitation at home and neoconservative mass murder abroad, someone who openly boasts about authoring the foundational documents of the USA PATRIOT Act, someone who promises rich donors that “nothing fundamentally will change” if he’s elected and who they know from experience can be taken at his word, it would never occur to them that this is someone who should be running for any elected office anywhere, let along within spitting distance of the most powerful one in the world.

It is only by the ability of the mass media to manufacture the illusion of normality that this bullshit has been made possible.

Dear Bernie: Now’s the time to say FUCK THIS SHIT and run as an independent. NOW. If you had done this in 2016, you’d be running for your second term. The Dems will NEVER let you win, and we can’t wait another 4 years. Sincerely, The „US“ is #NotMeUs

Jane Sanders Says Bernie Campaign Will Remove ‚Powers-That-Be‘ From Government: ‚We Already Have Corporate Socialism‘

Sanders, the wife of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, told Fox News Saturday the „powers-that-be“ in America are placing a shallow focus on her husband’s „Democratic socialist“ label instead of what they’re really attacking — his campaign policies. Jane Sanders said „corporate socialism“ has benefited billionaires like President Donald Trump and Michael Bloomberg, while hard-working U.S. taxpayers end up paying for their business subsidies and bailouts.

Killing Soleimani Was a ‚Violation of National and International Law,‘ Former Nuremberg War Crimes Prosecutor Says

The U.S. strike that killed Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani flouted both national and international law, according to a former lawyer who helped prosecute Nazi leaders at the post-World War II Nuremberg trials.

Benjamin B. Ferencz, 99, wrote to The New York Times this week expressing his opposition to the drone strike that killed Soleimani and several others outside Baghdad International Airport earlier this month.

Poor People’s Campaign Calls on United Nations to Hold Trump/U.S. Accountable for War Crimes

The lives of people in the Middle East and around the globe hang in the balance. The lives of those we represent — among the 140 million poor and low wealth in the United States, 43% of the U.S. population — also hang in the balance as the world teeters on the precipice of a devastating war.

Trump ordering Iran strike is war crime, faith leader says

(11.01.2020)

Rep. Khanna: Article of impeachment ‚on the table‘ after Iran strike

This is a war crime. Threatening to target and kill innocent families, women and children – which is what you’re doing by targeting cultural sites – does not make you a “tough guy.” It does not make you “strategic.” It makes you a monster.

Trump’s dangerous escalation brings us closer to another disastrous war in the Middle East that could cost countless lives and trillions more dollars. Trump promised to end endless wars, but this action puts us on the path to another one.
