The media really wants a horse race. Every single poll has been wrong. The polls are clearly for stories, but voting is showing the truth (which it always should).

Dems pick up Santos seat last night despite all the doom and gloom on how they were going to not perform well. Even this morning there are talking points on how the Dems barely won so it's not a good sign.....

I think if Sleepy Joe doesn't have any health issues before 11/5, America still seems to prefer his brand of governing over MAGA.
Biden singlehandedly stops a zombie apocalypse. Here's why this might be bad for his reelection campaign.
Not really sure why GOP is asking for this information publicly when there are procedures in place for them to find out. They'll probably leak this information to FoxNews to create more hysteria
In a major turn, Taylor Swift is actually a Russian Asset......Russians now own the Superb Owl

Two sources familiar with deliberations on Capitol Hill said the intelligence has to do with the Russians wanting to put a nuclear weapon into space.

This is not to drop a nuclear weapon onto Earth but rather to possibly use against satellites.

"It is very concerning and very sensitive," said one source, who called it "a big deal."

While not addressing the subject matter directly, multiple members of Congress have described the issue as serious -- but nothing that should cause public alarm.

so there it is.

and there was a russian launch the other day - seems like this may all be tied together.
Yeah seems like an odd target for a nuke when all you have to do is woo a certain ketamine abusing, coke fueled tech bro into user name password for half the satellites up there.
Gee I'm sure it was a natural death at 47. This is the kind of thing Trump would like to be able to do, that's one reason he loves Putin.

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has died in prison, the country's prison service said Friday, following a yearslong struggle against official corruption and President Vladimir Putin's government that saw him survive several poisoning attempts.

He was 47.
A good start for punishment would be to give Ukraine those frozen Russian assets ASAP. Whatever reason for delay or not doing seems to be nullified now
Pocket change.
He'll just sell a few more Trump steaks, a few tuitions to Trump University, a handful of flights on the Trump Shuttle and a bottle or two of Trump Vodka and he'll have it covered.
between this and the e jean carroll decision he's up to about $440 million in fees.

no lifetime ban from real estate, which was asked for.

trump tower is valued at $160 million, with $100 million in debt on it. so selling his most valuable asset would only net him $60 million.

banks are barred from giving him loans for 3 years if they have a license to operate in new york - which means, well, almost all of them.

fucked around, found out.
ya don't say

Of course he's already fundraising off of it, how anyone can give him even one cent is beyond any comprehension.

Some people are really easily manipulated by the perpetual false victimhood of narcissists.

Former President Donald J. Trump has told advisers and allies that he likes the idea of a 16-week national abortion ban with three exceptions, in cases of rape or incest, or to save the life of the mother, according to two people with direct knowledge of Mr. Trump’s deliberations.

Mr. Trump has studiously avoided taking a clear position on restrictions to abortion since Roe v. Wade was overturned in the middle of 2022, galvanizing Democrats ahead of the midterm elections that year. He has said in private that he wants to wait until the Republican presidential primary contest is over to publicly discuss his views, because he doesn’t want to risk alienating social conservatives before he has secured the nomination, the two people said.

Mr. Trump has approached abortion transactionally since becoming a candidate in 2015, and his current private discussions reflect that same approach.

One thing Mr. Trump likes about a 16-week federal ban on abortions is that it’s a round number. “Know what I like about 16?” Mr. Trump told one of these people, who was given anonymity to describe a private conversation. “It’s even. It’s four months.”
