Wanna give props to Andrew Yang for strong condemnation of Trump's assassination of Soleimani.

Since Williamson laid off all of her national staff and has basically suspended her campaign, this means that only Sanders and Yang have unequivocally condemned Trump's actions.

The rest played both sides to essentially say they're not opposed to war, just the leadership of the war.

Condemnation needs to be stronger from the left. Fabricating an "imminent attack" to justify thrusting us into war should be illegal. Where is the check on this kind of abuse of authority?

Rhetorical question I'm assuming?

Thanks for posting that, Fly.

GP, please read this article. It goes in depth into the very large drawbacks these types of payment pooling (not insurance) systems have. If you are part of one of these, you are opening yourself up to a tremendous amount of risk.

CBS/YouGov Poll:

IA:
Sanders - 23%
Biden - 23%
Buttigieg - 23%
Warren 16%

NH
Sanders - 27%
Biden - 25%
Warren - 18%
Buttigieg - 13%

Sanders winning NH over Biden because he's beating him with Independents according to crosstabs. Also leading with Independents in IA. IA and NH = GE swing states.

In Iowa,
67% of Sanders' backers call themselves "enthusiastic" about their choice. 61% of Warren's supporters say the same.
52% of Buttigieg's
49% of Biden's

Remember, IA is a caucus state. This measure is the one that really matters, to be honest. Caucusing requires a ton of enthusiasm because the process is ridiculously long and convoluted with arcane rules.

More good news for Sanders? This poll also shows he's the clear #2 choice for Warren voters too.

8(EIGHT)% of voters consider Biden "exciting". LMFAO Electable my ass. In a General Election, he'll be facing a guy going around the country speaking to 20-50k packed arenas of cultists. Nathan Robinson of Current Affairs attacks his myth of Joe Biden's electability.

The Iraqi Prime Minister just told the Iraqi Parliament that the US Troops need to leave. Says that Trump called him to mediate with Iran before ordering the drone assassination of Soleimani. Says that Soleimani was carrying the response to Saudi Initiative to defuse the situation when he was assassinated.

Pelosi needs to amend those Articles of Impeachment.
