If @ the next debates, moderators don't insist Biden flesh out his proposed policies IN DETAIL--finally providing voters SPECIFICS regarding his plan for a Medicare "option" for all & his $4 trillion in tax hikes & his plan to "phase out" fossil fuels--then you know the fix is in

Why is Trump still running the 2016 election? Because he can't win the 2020 one?

The man is totally outdoing himself today. He's throwing everything and the kitchen sink at the press desperately trying to change the subject from COVID.

Reminds me of a joke ..
Guy walks in a park. Sees some punk catch a squirrel .. punks takes a syringe and what looks like gas canister. He puls some gas into the syringe and injects it into the poor squirrel.
The squirrel starts to run in circles and jump around like crazy .. then it suddenly stops, dead.
Man goes: wtf just happened !?
Punk says: chill out man, he just run out of gas.

It's the word "record" as in unprecedented. The Stock Market certainly didn't hit "record highs". So to be a record, it would need to be...the other direction??

Frankly, I don't think it was a "record" anything at all. It just went up and down a bit based on news as it appears. It's just the ant-walking-on-a-blade-of-grass thing: Even a tiny rise looks mountainous.

Trump will refuse, but then Biden can weaponise this as another sign Trump cares nothing about covid safety.

It's the only safe way to proceed. Nixon/Kennedy did a remote debate decades ago, there's no reason it can't be done now.

No, I think Trump literally did not understand that Powell was firing at the Senate and White House for not pushing through another stimulus bill. Given the context of the House passing a new bill and the Repugnicans digging in their heels, his meaning was clear to anyone with a triple-digit IQ.

In lieu of a stimulus check, can Trump send everyone some of the drugs he's on?

It only works on him because half his brain is crazy and the other half is pure coronavirus by now. Those drugs wouldn't do squat for a regular person.

dudalb 6th October 2020 08:42 PM

One rumor is Moscow Mitch is behind the killing of the stimulus package.
If so,then Mitch must be on drugs himself, since this will badly hurt the GOP chances of keeping the senate.

Maybe.

It's probably worth considering what game McConnell's playing and what his actual goals are, though, either way. It's fairly certainly not the same as a normal person would think that it should be, regardless.

The GOP couldn't get a Stimulus passed in their own Senate.

So there is no way Republicans look good, with or without stimulus.

Its possible that Moscow Mitch expects the republicans to lose the senate (as well as the white house) regardless of what they do about Covid19 funding, based on current opinion polls. As such, he may be planning on causing as much damage as possible to give Biden and a Democratic senate as big a hole as possible to climb out of, to make them look bad in future elections.

If he suspects the Dems are going to retain the House and take the WH as well as the Senate, then they'll able to pass whatever stimulus bill they want. That will make them look good to the public, not bad.

Pardon a foreigner's ignorance but do the newly elected senators, like a newly elected President, have to wait until January before they take their seats in the Senate, or is it sooner?

AIUI yes. In the event of the GOP losing the Presidency and/or the Senate, Mitch McConnell and President Trump have more than two months to do whatever they can. They can confirm SCOTUS members, push through legislation, veto other legislation and son on.

The new Congress will be in office on Jan 3rd, 2021.

If Kelly wins the special election in Arizona, he normally will be sworn in on Nov 30th, 2020, reducing the GOP majority to 52-48.

Maybe. As it stands, there are a couple things to consider. First, what would be needed to pass such a bill in the Senate? By the reports, the Republicans are very divided on the topic, so any chance of success would require working with the Democrats - which is deeply problematic itself given their politics. There are two main ways that they've tried to overcome that. First, there's President Trump with his minion Mnuchin. That's a somewhat famously unreliable tactic, of course. Second, there's the route of giving businesses wildly bigger benefits at the same time - such as McConnell's insistence on including effectively complete immunity to businesses for any and all liability related to COVID as just one of the demands attached to anything that he would work with the Democrats to get passed. Obviously, that's a huge trap that also serves his goals rather well either way.

Second, it might be worth considering that McConnell's fairly certainly not just looking at the election that's about to happen and he already expects Trump to lose while taking multiple Senators with him. If he gets the nominated judge onto the Supreme Court, for example, and Democrats expand the size of the Supreme Court in response, he fairly certainly expects to be able to flip the situation around again and break things even harder and faster than he's been doing, shielded again by a thin facade of "The Democrats did it first, so it's all their fault." To poke a different aspect, even if the Democrats do manage to get aid where it needs to go, the Republicans will have an easy time just building on the current narrative of Democrats wanting to bail out those rich blue states and suddenly expressing "reasonable" concerns about the budget that they've conveniently been forgetting to express while Trump's in office, among other things.

This all seems to be the product of Trump's "research team", busy night and day trawling the dingier, more corrupt, and plainly lunatic parts of the intertubes to find this slapstick material. Methinks, based on the sheer wackiness, it has been curated by Rudi G. And I suspect a lot more people can see it is News Of The World standard, and are now simply not buying any of it any more.
