On the eve of the 100 days in office milestone, President Donald Trump claims he is both a nationalist and a globalist

quote [ Trump: Chance of 'major, major conflict' with North Korea/Trump tough on South Korea: Threatens to terminate free trade deal, wants payment for THAAD missile defense system ]

The many faces of Donald Trump. I know I said don't listen to what he says just watch what he does..but I'm getting dizzy and now he say...I'm two, two mints in one.

The trade war is already started.

quote [ America’s $1.2 Billion Mexico Milk Trade Is Now at Risk

The biggest U.S. dairy importer is talking with New Zealand and buying more from the EU. Guess why. ]

Wonder if Wisconsin thinks they did the right thing now?

If you want to take over the Democratic party ...the time is now!

quote [ The 2018 midterms are still 561 days away, but an unprecedented early surge of Democrats have already declared their candidacies for the House of Representatives, setting up what will likely be one of the longest and most crowded series of House Democratic primary campaigns in memory. ]

Time to put up or shut up. In my district it is the Governor's Chair that is at stake. In the house the Dems need to pick up 24 seats. The Senate looks out of reach.

March for Science: Protesters gather worldwide to support 'evidence'

quote [ Crowds massed in the US capital and around the world Saturday to support science and evidence-based research -- a protest partly fueled by opposition to President Donald Trump's threats of budget cuts to agencies funding scientists' work. ]

I'm not at all sure that marches like this do anything. At the very least it will introduce like minded people.

‘Pivotal Moment’ for Democrats? Gerrymandering Heads to Supreme Court

quote [ The hand-to-hand political combat in House elections on Tuesday in Georgia and last week in Kansas had the feel of the first rounds of an epic battle next year for control of the House of Representatives and the direction of national politics as the Trump presidency unfolds.

But for all the zeal on the ground, none of it may matter as much as a case heading to the Supreme Court, one that could transform political maps from City Hall to Congress ]

To quote Joe Bidden...This is a BFD

I used to support legalizing all drugs. Then the opioid epidemic happened.

quote [ It all seemed so obvious to me. Prohibition had failed. Over the past decade, millions of Americans had been arrested and, in many of these cases, locked up for drugs. The government spent tens of billions of dollars a year on anti-drug policies ]

Prohibition is still a mistake. I wonder how you all feel about it.

See for yourself...The difference between a 3rd way democrat and a progressive populist

quote [ MrTwistyRoads 7 hours ago
Let Bernie speak more. Perez is still lost and is just warm-fuzzy phrase peddling. Democrats still don't get it. ]

The difference as so eloquently stated by MrTwistyRoads...Policy Vs. can't we all get along rhetoric. If this is any indication there has been no change in the thinking at the DNC...they indeed still don't get it.

And all the media gleams from this is that Bernie Won't say he is a Democrat...sad.

quote [ The Democratic House candidate is flirting with the possibility of an outright win in Tuesday’s primary. ]

So far so good... looks like a squeaker...up 56%...way early.

John Oliver Issues a Stark Warning to France Ahead of Presidential Election "Don't fuck up too."

quote [ Like Trump, the far-right French candidate runs an extremely anti-immigration campaign, and she's been accused of using her platform to promote racist policies against Muslims. ]

The Eruozone is falling apart. It's nice to see we are not the only mess in the world.

Democrats In Illinois Just Unseated A Whole Bunch Of Republicans

quote [ They’re local races, but they fit with an emerging trend that could mean big trouble for the GOP in 2018. ]

The elections went well around here. But it is hard to tell, is this Trump Backlash or Bruce Rauner backlash, much like with Brownback in Kansas.
