    CNN president's 15-year-old son resigns from board of directors after scandal

    The 15-year-old son of CNN president Jeff Zucker was given a leadership position at New Jersey senatorial candidate Cory Booker’s tech startup. The teen abruptly resigned after news broke about what critics considered an “inappropriate” arrangement.

    Joe keeps falling in the polls...




    https://www.latimes.com/politics/sto...alifornia-poll


    I guess he shouldn't have called that dude a "fat [f*ck]":

    ‘You’re a damn liar, man!’ – Joe Biden blasts Iowa voter, calls him ‘fat’ after man repeats Ukraine smear


    • Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden on Thursday calls a man in Iowa a “damn liar” and “fat” and “too old to vote for me” after the man accuses Biden of getting his son Hunter a job with a Ukrainian gas company.
    • President Donald Trump is facing an impeachment inquiry for pressuring Ukraine to investigate Biden and his son while withholding military aid.
    • Biden’s spokeswoman Symone Sanders later claims that Biden said, “Look, facts,” not “Look, fat,” referring to the man.


    Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden on Thursday called a man in Iowa a “damn liar,” “fat” and “too old to vote for me” after the man accused Biden without any evidence of getting his son Hunter a job with a Ukrainian gas company in exchange for access to the Obama administration.


    “You’re a damn liar, and that’s not true,” Biden snapped at the man during a campaign event in New Hampton, Iowa, as an audience of adults and children looked on.

    The former vice president Biden then challenged the man — who had also questioned Biden’s fitness for the White House given his age — to feats of strength, endurance and intelligence.


    “I’m not sedentary,” said the 77-year-old Biden. “You want to check my shape on, let’s do push ups together, let’s run, let’s do whatever you want to do, let’s take an IQ test.”

    Dammit Dems... your impeachment sh*t isn't working:

    Thanks Impeachment: Trump Now Beating Every Democrat In Three Battleground States



    Who knew that when it came to impeachment, its biggest benefactor would be President Donald Trump?

    Everyone. Everyone knew that…except the Democrats apparently.

    According to Firehouse Strategies, the battleground states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin all consistently showed that Trump was losing to Joe Biden in a match-up, but recently, polling from Firehouse shows that he’s now falling short of beating Trump by six points, and it’s all thanks to impeachment:
    As the race currently stands, President Trump is in the lead in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin in hypothetical match-ups against former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Bernie Sanders, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and former Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Across the three states, Trump’s closest contest is against Joe Biden, although the president leads by an average of 6 percentage points against each Democrat.
    [...]

    [...]
    https://www.redstate.com/brandon_mor...ground-states/

    Of course, Biden and his crackhead son suck anyway. Maybe Bloomberg can beat him. Bloomberg doesn't have any crackhead, whore chasing sons, does he?

    This impeachment thing is dumb and needs to end quickly. The senate does not have the integrity or moral courage to impeach. Get it over with and let's dump this horrible president at the polls.

    Cool... maybe she can afford some new sweaters and a second black dress.

    Or maybe she could get some hand-me-down $10,000 pantsuits from Hillary and have them altered about 5-10 sizes down.

    So she isn’t going to release the tax returns? Makes me wonder what she’s hiding.

    It would be entertaining for the small percentage of people that are law grads and other highly educated people. For the remaining 99% of the population, Donald would come off much better than you think. It’s the same mistake John Kerry made and why he lost to a dumb klutz like W.

    I think she would be destroyed by Trump. She would try to come across as the adult and would end up looking like an egghead. Trump would follow the cougjunkie model of argumentation and insult her right off the stage.

    Yes, he would eviscerate her. She is at her worst when she thinks she is being clever (and sadly, her acolytes don't understand this and prefer to make it a anti-woman issue).

    I dunno. Admittedly I don't follow the whole thing that closely until the homestretch or I would have known/remembered Warren's background. But I have heard a clip or 2 of her with some pretty biting critiques of Trump that are a bit more clever and useful than calling someone 'Pocahontas.'

    Ever been in an argument with a 5 year-old? They just keep repeating the same thing, while you try to use logic, and they are convinced that they are winning.

    That's how Warren and Trump would go. He would turn it into a playground name-calling match. She would try to inject logic at some point. He would return to the name calling and "oh yeah, well..." type remarks - and she would get flustered that her apparent arguments never made a dent in his facade as he gains momentum due to her frustration at his apparent inability to see that she made a good point he had no counterpoint to.

    Remember who the voters are - they're looking for reality TV and Trump would give it to them.

    Yes. She'd be playing three dimensional chess and he'd be playing one dimensional checkers with only four pieces.

    Of course. Because the majority of the audience loves one dimensional checkers. It's much more exciting for them.

    Plus, Warren reminds them of their least favorite school teacher.

    lol Part II

    Memo from 1990s pollution case shows Elizabeth Warren in action as corporate consultant

    The memo from then-Professor Elizabeth Warren was written on Harvard Law School letterhead, a symbol of gravitas for a scholar renowned as a champion for consumers victimized by predatory banks and other big businesses.

    But on this occasion, Warren was not arguing on behalf of vulnerable families, nor was she offering the sort of stinging rebuke of corporate greed that would later define her political career. Rather, Warren was representing a large development company that was trying to avoid having to clean up a toxic waste site.

    The memo, which Warren wrote in 1996, used legalistic and often dense language to argue that businesses faced the “risk of the unknown” from a growing threat of lawsuits, and that defended the company’s right to “maximize its returns to its unpaid creditors and to survive as an employer.”

    “Environmental claims, product liability claims, and mass tort claims, for which we have currently only seen the tip of the iceberg, are multiplying against American businesses,” wrote Warren, who, according to her campaign, was arguing that a different company should bear the cleanup costs.

    The eight-page memo, which has not previously been reported, offers a rare glimpse of Warren in action during her past work as a corporate consultant — one whose arguments were at times out of step with the liberal presidential campaign she is running today.

    Warren’s compensation in the 1996 case was included in a summary released by her campaign late Sunday night showing that she had been paid about $2 million as a legal consultant during her time as a professor, most of it between 1995 and 2009.

    But Warren, who has released 11 years of tax returns, has not disclosed her tax records from most of that time period.
    She has been so strident about the evil of big business in our lives, I don't see how she survives this. She will still need to release those tax returns. There is a reason she hasn't done it so far.

    Bye bye Sen Warren.

    I don't see any actual facts in the stuff that you've quoted to lead me to believe the company that she represented was evil. Somebody is jumping to big conclusions here.

    And the two million fee adds up to less than $150,000 a year. Not at all unreasonable.
