    Is the media failing to hype up any disagreements between Republicans (IE- Justin Amash calling for impeachment)?

    The US has different concerns than Brazil (#1 in the category of gun deaths). For example, the majority of gun deaths in the US are suicides, whereas homicides are the majority of gun deaths worldwide.

    You think that is a GOP in disarray story? A lone Congressman breaks from the never go against Trump Republican Party and you call that disarray?

    You find that comparable to the Daily "Dems-Pelosi-Impeachment" stories we get?

    Nice false equivalencey, but it's a fail.

    Well aside from the US, the top countries on that list are all these unstable, gang-ridden Latin American dictatorships. Gee, whoever is supplying their weapons must be making a fortune...

    Trump's paranoia has advanced to the stage where he has gone from simply referring to media outlets as "the enemy of the people", and last night, he started accusing the New York Times of outright treason, that ol' capital offense.

    He remains severely mentally ill.

    Tom Cotton the warmonger was talking again.

    Joe Biden and the ‘electability’ delusion — and why the media keep making the same mistake

    As Iowa journalist Robert Leonard talks to voters around his state, he finds himself baffled at the national portrayal of Joe Biden’s dominance in the presidential campaign.

    The local Democrats he encounters respect the former vice president, he told me, but many of them also feel his time has passed.

    They’re far more excited about other candidates, five in particular: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.); Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind.; Sen. Kamala D. Harris (Calif.); former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke and Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.).

    So he shakes his head at the extensive coverage and commentary that depicts Biden as almost a shoo-in for a nomination that’s more than a year away.

    One example: CNN’s morning briefing newsletter recently called Biden “the most formidable threat” to President Trump’s reelection chances.

    Tory leadership candidates: Who are the contenders hoping to become the next Prime Minister?

    The Conservative leadership election got under way in full on Monday, June 10 as the deadline passed for candidates to put themselves forward. There was an initial 10 Tory MPs running with that number whittled down to seven after the first vote on Thursday.

    Thirteen MPs had said they would stand but James Cleverly and Kit Malthouse pulled out early on while Sam Gyimah failed to gain the required eight backers to make it onto the final list of candidates.

    U.S. Escalates Online Attacks on Russia’s Power Grid

    Two administration officials said they believed Mr. Trump had not been briefed in any detail about the steps to place “implants” — software code that can be used for surveillance or attack — inside the Russian grid.

    Pentagon and intelligence officials described broad hesitation to go into detail with Mr. Trump about operations against Russia for concern over his reaction — and the possibility that he might countermand it or discuss it with foreign officials, as he did in 2017 when he mentioned a sensitive operation in Syria to the Russian foreign minister.

    Because the new law defines the actions in cyberspace as akin to traditional military activity on the ground, in the air or at sea, no such briefing would be necessary, they added.

    I suspect that, after the first debate, Biden will also see a drop in at least some polls.

    I mean you can try and pull that bs if you like but theres a clear difference between "Your job is promoting a terrible figure who is destabilising our nation and fanning the flames of hate" and "I dont like what you do in the bedroom"

    Sanders was refused because of the clear facts showcasing her being ok with the Trump administrations terrible decisions. The other couple were refused because of one person being a bigot.

    He kicked that strawman's butt! I hear people calling Biden the front runner and the leader for it.

    Which he is. By all polling he is currently the most formidable threat, the leader, and all of the other descriptors. What remains to be seen is whether he stays there through the primaries. Anecdotes about who some guy in Iowa is talking to is not a relevant counter-point to the numbers we have.

    If anyone likes someone more than Biden, go out there and help them campaign and change the direction of the numbers. But don't create fantasies in favor of reality.

    Not a surprise. Two things are working against Sanders that weren't last time around. He is no longer the sole alternative to the frontrunner like he was before, and he no longer even has exclusivity with his leftist answers - Warren has that too, except in greater detail and doesn't use the Socailist label. Bernie's remaining base oc exclusive support might be the people who think the system is broken and needs to be blown up - the people who were most likely to defect to Cheeto Benito last time around.
