Make the US Politics Thread Great Again


Pretty sure the Nazi one was worse, Japanese one wasn’t overly good either but sure.


Haha this is amazing. Looks like Bernie’s Fox town hall moderator tried to show up M4A and got shut down by the crowd.



That’s fantastic.


Not to speak on behalf of Fantastic Mr Fox, but I think he means the worst that those nations have had, not the worst governments EVARRR.


That Govenor Bligh chap was a bit of a jerk by most acounts.


He was the Governor of NSW technically.


The COLA was a serious drain on the econmy though.


As expected, Trump vetoes the War Powers Act - proving he is in bed with Saudi and MBS.



Jared Kushner has his hands all over this one…

Honestly, regardless of party affiliation, our obsession with oil has been a catastrophe for foreign policy.


To be fair, America’s love in with the Saudi’s existed well before Trump. You can trace it back to Nixon and the creation of the “petrodollar”


Yes, hence my point about party affiliation. Both Dems and Republicans are to blame.



US going rogue again reinstating application of the extra-territorial provisions of the Helms Burton Act in respect of trade and investment with Cuba. Following a WTO dispute challenge by the EU and Canada, the Clinton Administration agreed to suspend application of Title III of the Act .

2 year report and we discover some people retweeted some Russian bots


Dems requesting Mueller to testify.

They had there go at it, move along. Give their candidates a clear run at 2020


Mmmm, … yeah, … how about GFY?






… If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, however, we are unable to reach that judgment. The evidence we obtained about the President’s actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred. Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.
