    The Empire Files piece was very good and very depressing. Abby does high quality work.


    Love is way more powerful than hate. That is why hate needs to kill. Otherwise love will overpower it. Hate uses its sibling, fear.

    Sadly I'm now about 95 % convinced that there will be another four years of Trump.

    That is unless he dies prematurely or something really devastating happens to society before 2024.

    I don't think so. I don't think he'll get enough votes, either raw or electoral. But he may cause a Constitutional crisis by refusing to leave.

    1 - Who ( not the corrupt WHO ) in their rite mind would vote Biden ?.

    2 - In their rite mind who would give USA Biden to vote for ?.

    3 - What was always once behind the scenes has become seeable and knowable if one knows their own mind. Only need a Question mark if mind virus has attachment imo.

    4 - Look n feel for the ones at peace ( not all ) and journey openly allowing old mind trauma n pain their paths.

    I think you may be projecting your hopes. Biden is a very weak candidate, I'd call him a trainwreck if I'm being polite. Trump still has a lot of supporters, he might try to extend his term one way or another. Anyways, there are no real winners in that race, except for big corporations and rich people.

    I appreciate what you're saying, Wind. But it's not my hopes leading me to think that lots more people will vote. It's lots more people voting, a trend which has existed and continued and increased throughout Trump's presidency.

    People will vote against a candidate, just like they did with Hillary. A lot of Trump's votes were anti-Hillary. And he failed to play the usual winning game which is to expand his base, which he easily could have. But he blew that chance. The Wisconsin primary debacle has shown folks that Republicans really don't give a shit about them and they are pissed.

    I agree, and this is something I personally already saw coming weeks ago, when all of the other candidates dropped out. Once again, this is evidence of how the system is rigged. Bernie got walked all over the last time, and he didn't have the spine to stand up against Hillary and the Democratic National Committee. And so now he's showing for the second time that he doesn't have a spine by dropping out again.

    The truth is that apart from lacking a spine, Bernie also never had a chance, because both the Democrats and the Republicans are controlled by the corporate world, and corporate America doesn't want a socialist for president. They were already conspiring against him when the other Democratic candidates were still in the running. And Joe Biden is senile, so nobody in their right mind is going to vote for him. Ergo, yes, it'll be another four years of the Trumpanzee.

    Ok, here's my somewhat considered opinion.

    The 1st thing to remember is that the 'real' power base in the U.S. is on the right...they own everything from top to bottom, the corporations, the banks, the politicians, and the stupid (of which there is a plentiful amount). The stupid on the left which are fewer in total numbers still have enough sway in the Democratic party to keep things conservative ( given the aforementioned realities, perhaps that isn't so stupid).

    The 2nd thing is that I'm not convinced Biden is really senile rather than just goofy. He hasn't changed ever, so what we see today is just more of the same Slow Joe and if he is senile at least he hasn't entered the 'destructive' stage which makes him a sizable improvement over his highness

    The final thing is that if the Democratic party isn't so completely ignorant to miss the reality that the left is looking for leftward changes the Vice-Presidential choice will be one to satisfy those yearnings. I think Bernie is burned out, heart attack, constant battles, I think he feels he has made his mark and will see to it that someone takes up his mantle. It could be him, it could be Elizabeth Warren, maybe even what's her name, it most assuredly will not be what's her name.

    Perhaps a country needs more than a troll as their president, but oh well.

    Yes, I think it was obvious months ago that the DNC will make the exact same mistake they did with Hillary and kill off their only genuinely popular candidate that can beat Trump. Bernie Bros will either not turn up for the DNC's hand picked pile of turd, or vote for the other side in disgust. Trump could still fuck it up with his Cov response, but somehow I doubt it.

    Joe Biden is not only senile, but he really does have a Ukraine corruption problem, which is pretty much a proven fact, unlike Trump, who has been cleared of any such alleged links to Russia.

    I really like Darth Vader's take on why Bernie bros are going to vote for Trump this time around:

    Btw, as much as I don't like Darth Bannon, his War Room show has been so prescient and excellent on the Cov epidemic, being generally months ahead of the mainstream in his analysis and predictions. Kudos to him at least on this issue.
