Post US Politics
I'm tired of not having an US-Politics thread.

Rules of behaviour of this thread:
1. You're allowed to speak your opinion. This is a freedom of speech thread, but not a freedom to insult thread.
2. Insults are not allowed. Different political opinions are not insults. If you are offended if someone has a different opinion on political topics than you then DO NOT KEEP ON READING HERE. No Ad hominem attacks!
3. If you wanna be taken serious, talk to each other like adults would do.
4. Satirical memes on politicians are not only allowed. THEY ARE WELCOME here.


Yes, we need these rules, because some people have no control over their temperament.

Nothing wrong with posting articles. If you don't want to read it, just don't do it.
Posting an article doesn't force you to talk about it. I'm reading a million articles a day. Would I debate about it? Maybe I don't care some people have to say about it. Maybe someone likes the article or thinks it's usefull. That's my aim.

Yeah, how many of those 24 million Americans who will be uninsured in a couple years voted for Trump? Not to mention the people who can barely afford health care right now?

As for the rich white folks, they'll be getting quite the break from the new plan if it goes through. What a surprise.

A Republican and Democrat senator working together?

Huh. It's almost as if Nationalist politicians are finding more common ground with each other than they are with Globalist politicians within their own parties.

Tulsi is awesome. She should be Dem nominee next election. She's got way more sense than any of these other pricks.

Maddow got Trump's 05 tax return and unveiled the BOMBASTIC BOMBSHELL that he paid a shitload of taxes.

Lol. Kinda deflates this whole "please show us your returns" nonsense.

The IDEA of it was a good thing. With premiums going up and providers dropping out, it is only a matter of time until the cost becomes so high that no one can afford to enter.

Even the Democrats admit that it's unsustainable in its current form.

Don't think so. Sometimes you need to make clear that people who don't like your opinion should still behave like adults. Some people seem to forget that from time to time.

Rand Paul is right: NSA routinely monitors Americans' communications without warrants

Quote:
.....

As I documented at the height of the controversy over the Snowden reporting, top government officials — including President Obama — constantly deceived (and still deceive) the public by falsely telling them that their communications cannot be monitored without a warrant. Responding to the furor created over the first set of Snowden reports about domestic spying, Obama sought to reassure Americans by telling Charlie Rose: “What I can say unequivocally is that if you are a U.S. person, the NSA cannot listen to your telephone calls … by law and by rule, and unless they … go to a court, and obtain a warrant, and seek probable cause.”

The right-wing chairman of the House Intelligence Committee at the time, GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, echoed Obama, telling CNN the NSA “is not listening to Americans’ phone calls. If it did, it is illegal. It is breaking the law.”

Those statements are categorically false. A key purpose of the new 2008 FISA law — which then-Senator Obama voted for during the 2008 general election after breaking his primary-race promise to filibuster it — was to legalize the once-controversial Bush/Cheney warrantless eavesdropping program, which the New York Times won a Pulitzer Prize for exposing in 2005. The crux of the Bush/Cheney controversy was that they ordered NSA to listen to Americans’ international telephone calls without warrants — which was illegal at the time — and the 2008 law purported to make that type of domestic warrantless spying legal.

Because warrantless spying on Americans is so anathema to how citizens are taught to think about their government — that’s what Obama was invoking when he falsely told Rose that it’s “the same way when we were growing up and we were watching movies, you want to go set up a wiretap, you got to go to a judge, show probable cause” — the U.S. government has long been desperate to hide from Americans the truth about NSA’s warrantless powers. U.S. officials and their media spokespeople reflexively mislead the U.S. public on this critical point.

It’s no surprise, then, that as soon as Rand Paul was done uttering the unpleasant, usually hidden truth about NSA’s domestic warrantless eavesdropping, the cavalcade of ex-intelligence-community officials who are now heavily embedded in American punditry rushed forward to attack him. One former NSA lawyer, who now writes for the IC’s most loyal online platform, Lawfare, expressed grave offense at what she claimed was Sen. Paul’s “false and irresponsible claim.”

Too bad there's no double dissolution in the US. 2 failed attempts to pass something and you can dissolve government and call a new election.

2 massive fails at your first policy of immigration bans failed in your first 3 months, you should be out of a job.
