Just wanna say that a top tier candidate for President just willingly and unprompted called out KSA and Israel for not being very good allies while also standing up for the human rights of Palestinian people.

This is pretty monumental as far as showing a difference between the FoPo of everyone else on that stage and Sanders.

Also, spin room interview Ryan Grim had with Yang regarding Bolivia...it's bad. Can tell that Yang just wasn't knowledgeable on the issue and spouted some shit that supports the bogus OAS story that there were voting irregularities (narrator voice: "There weren't.") I love that he's pushing the ideas quotient, but that's not enough to be president. You can't know everything, but your wheelhouse isn't all you'll have to deal with. You have to have people around you while you're campaigning to brief you on things of import that happen in other areas. I have no doubts he could learn this stuff, it just says something about priorities that he hasn't.

I'll watch the interview if I can find it. Not surprising at all that Yang would botch a foreign policy question, he may be the weakest candidate in that area. He's smart enough to know he's not Christopher Hitchens and purposefully pulls all of his questions back to domestic policy.

Funny how the same type of excuses are coming up once again.

Netanyahu just got indicted by Israel's Attorney General for an assorted grab bag of corruption. He's claiming it's a "coup". Where have we heard that defense for corrupt behavior from a government official before?

Yang was saying this before anyone

He also called it a witch hunt.

In the latest Politico/Morning Consult poll, released on November 19, Independents opposed impeachment and removal from office 46% to 39%

I wonder if the democrats will consider tabling impeachment.

Also, maybe the biggest highlight of last night's debate

+ YouTube Video

Now a lot of very left leaning pundits are saying that Tulsi somehow won this exchange. In reality, Mayor Pete showed why he's such a popular candidate. I'm a huge Gabbard fan, but Pete had quick witted retorts and very sharp responses to everything she had to say, whether you agree with him or not. His sub-communications were on point. If style/charisma was the only thing you were voting for, he'd be my candidate.

The 46% should watch Fiona Hillís testimony and reconsider.
