  1. Outside of both sides chilling out a bit, unless Trump starts insulting Kim because he couldn't make an impossible deal, nothing meaningful will change.
  2. Like i said, the US isn't going anywhere anytime soon. https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/19/asia/north-korea-us-forces-korean-peninsula-intl/index.html "North Korea has expressed willingness to give up its nuclear program without making (a) demand that the (US Forces Korea) forces withdraw from the Korean Peninsula," Moon said in a meeting with the press, adding that any proposed troop withdrawal would be a "condition that the US cannot accept." The South Korean leader, due to meet Kim next week for a historic summit in the Demilitarized Zone, the border separating the two countries, said that the North was concerned about its security.
  3. Republicans in Congress don't like Trump, but are cowards, lol.
  4. Literally hours after they announced they were "open for business again" as a worker got too close to a high power line with an excavator which caused a cascading failure shutting down power plants to protect them from the surge. Mission accomplished! Imagine if this was happening to one of the 50 states. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/18/us/puerto-rico-power-outage.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority had boasted Wednesday morning that less than 3 percent of its customers remained without power, substantially concluding what some estimates called the biggest power failure in United States history. The island of 3.4 million residents was open for business again, government officials said. It was only a few hours later that an excavator working near a fallen 140-foot transmission tower on the southern part of the island got too close to a high-voltage line. The resulting electrical fault knocked out power to nearly every home and business across the storm-battered American territory, authorities said, a catastrophic failure that could take up to 36 hours to restore. Mr. González said the blackout occurred after a large excavator operated by a subcontractor, working to pick up a fallen 140-foot transmission tower in a rural area, got too close to a high-voltage line, which led to a discharge of energy. As a protection measure, the line and the power plant it led to automatically went out of service. But then the other power-generating plants in the south went down, too. “It took out all the units in the south,” Mr. González said. The power in Puerto Rico is generated in the south and largely consumed in the north, a situation which leaves long transmission lines vulnerable to damage. The power company, commonly known as Prepa, has not yet been able to build backup systems to avoid massive power failures when something goes wrong, Mr. González said.
  5. This is for Flakes seat, Ward is a complete nutter, lol.
  6. Beto O'Rourke is down 3 points against Ted Cruz in Quinnipiac poll, within the 3.6 margin of error. Trump also underwater in the state with 52% disapproval
  7. The US military is spending billions on basically building a city in South korea, for US troops, we're not going anywhere anytime soon.
  8. A reporter has Corker who he would vote for in 2016 election was done today, then he agonized over it for 4 days.
  9. Striking down part of an immigration law requiring the deportation of any immigrant convicted of a "violent crime," on the basis that its too vague. https://www.npr.org/2018/04/17/603160263/supreme-court-strikes-down-part-of-immigration-law?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=npr&utm_term=nprnews&utm_content=20180417 The U.S. Supreme Court declared a clause in federal law, requiring the deportation of immigrants convicted of a "crime of violence," unconstitutionally vague Tuesday. It's a blow to the Trump Justice Department and came at the hands, ironically, of conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch, who sided with the court's liberals in a 5-4 decision. In 2015, the court also held that a clause alluding to a "violent felony" in the Armed Career Criminal Act was unconstitutionally vague. https://www.apnews.com/amp/f9cab977ee3d452e996c6fbcf8dd7e20?__twitter_impression=true With the four other conservative justices in dissent, it was the vote of Trump-appointee Gorsuch that was decisive in striking down the provision at issue. Gorsuch did not join all of Kagan's opinion, but he agreed with her that the law could not be left in place. Gorsuch wrote that "no one should be surprised that the Constitution looks unkindly on any law so vague that reasonable people cannot understand its terms and judges do not know where to begin in applying it."
  10. Russian Sanctions are totally coming monday. *Monday morning* I mean maybe sometime in the future.
  11. Poll shows Dem with 1 point lead in Arizona District vacated by Franks, its an outlier so far, but the GOP has pumped a bunch of money into the race since PA18 went badly. Trump won the district by 21 points, and in order for the Dem to win it requires a significant chunk of Rs to not show up or to vote D as they have a significant registration lead there. http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/383340-poll-arizona-special-election-in-dead-heat A poll from Emerson College found physician Hiral Tipirneni (D) narrowly leading with 46 percent, compared to former state Sen. Debbie Lesko (R), who is at 45 percent — well within the poll’s margin of error.
  12. Yup, the big baby whined hard enough and got what he wanted, lol.
