    A few months ago, the Transition Integrity Project, a bipartisan group of political operatives, former government and military officials, and academics gamed out various scenarios to determine what options parties had under different scenarios. If Trump won the electoral college and lost the popular vote, Democrats were willing to demand approval to split California into multiple states in exchange to agreeing to the results of an election with clearly articulated standards.

    You realize this is just a version of War Games and not and actual policy of any Party. It's a group of people playing out multiple "What If" scenarios.
    It means as much as you discussing "what should the Dems give up to have the GOP concede to something else".

    Finally read the controversial article. Time to go, pack up your suitcase and leave the Whitehouse.

    It's easy to denigrate those who had the bravery to fight and die in Vietnam, while daddy helped him defer the draft 5 times. The "Suckers & losers" comments is obviously being spurred on by a mental health issue, because Trump's narcissism can't let him live with the guilt and shame of being a draft dodger.

    There's nothing wrong with being a foreign policy isolationist, there is everything wrong about disparaging the vets.

    Unfit to find the courage to serve in the military, than unfit to be President, time to pack your bags and go.

    Whereas Trump has been picking up Stone's advice over and over again. Stone says it now, Trump will mention it in an interview or presser a few days or weeks later.

    Covid Kim is so corrupt.

    1. It's pretty widely known here that she carried out an affair with a staffer and then fired him once it ran its course.
    2. She's a three time college dropout that didn't graduate until she became Lt. Governor, and likely didn't actually do her own coursework.


    I really, really can't wait to send her to prison.

    In the scenario, it was surprising when John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's former campaign chairman, strategizing for the Democrats, refused to concede a narrow electoral college loss.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/02/b...?smid=tw-share

    But conveniently, a group of former top government officials called the Transition Integrity Project actually gamed four possible scenarios, including one that doesn’t look that different from 2016: a big popular win for Mr. Biden, and a narrow electoral defeat, presumably reached after weeks of counting the votes in Pennsylvania. For their war game, they cast John Podesta, who was Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, in the role of Mr. Biden. They expected him, when the votes came in, to concede, just as Mrs. Clinton had.

    But Mr. Podesta, playing Mr. Biden, shocked the organizers by saying he felt his party wouldn’t let him concede. Alleging voter suppression, he persuaded the governors of Wisconsin and Michigan to send pro-Biden electors to the Electoral College.

    In that scenario, California, Oregon, and Washington then threatened to secede from the United States if Mr. Trump took office as planned. The House named Mr. Biden president; the Senate and White House stuck with Mr. Trump. At that point in the scenario, the nation stopped looking to the media for cues, and waited to see what the military would do.
    I don't think he's doing this in order to help the Trump campaign's election lawyers strategize.
    Sincerely,
    Thomas Mets

    Draft Senate GOP legislation would take away the Fed’s ability to make new emergency loans w/coronavirus relief funds after January & reallocate some of the unused $$ backing those programs

    (The bill is unlikely to pass either chamber in its current form)

    Louisiana judge found guilty of sex crimes against teenage daughters’ friends


    A Louisiana judge running for re-election was found guilty Saturday of multiple counts of sex crimes against three young women, as young as 14, who were friends with his teenage daughters.

    St. John Parish Judge Jeff Perilloux was convicted of three felony counts of indecent behavior with a juvenile and a fourth count of misdemeanor sexual battery after prosecutors accused him of grooming the girls.
