Just a PSA.

If you see anyone on television, hear anyone on radio, read anyone in a paper/magazine article who is praising the assassination of Soleimani, check their LinkedIN before giving any weight to their words.

More often than not(pretty much all the time), you'll find that they work for or are affiliated with lobbying firms representing the Arms Manufacturers.

If they're a politician, they're likely paid to advocate for the MIC as well.

Morning Consult Poll of Latino Voters shows they're continuing to move to Sanders

Sanders - 36% (+7)
Biden - 24% (-)
Warren - 11% (-1)
Yang - 6% (-)
Bloomberg - 5% (-1)
Steyer - 4% (+1)
Buttigieg - 4% (-2)

Pete has an enormous problem with AA voters and also Latino voters as well.

I seem to recall seeing Jon Ralston on Chuck Todd's show on MSNBC a couple of weeks ago and he said Sanders was a darkhorse to win Nevada for the same reason. So, I have no grounds to dispute that Sanders' Latino outreach is working and other campaigns would do well to dissect whatever his campaign is doing successfully.

What I think you're seeing is Biden poised to place in the money (first, second, or third) in pretty much every state polled because he has durable support from moderates and African Americans. The other candidates seem to have a handful of states they poll better in, but don't have the same consistency state-to-state. So, the question is whether any single candidate gains enough intensity to either sweep up and consolidate the progressive vote (i.e. Warren or Sanders cannibalize the other's support) and/or do enough to start to eat into Biden's sizable advantage with African Americans. Otherwise, this starts to feel a bit like the Democratic Party version of how McCain won the Republican primary in 2008.

The last 10 seconds are words to live by. Considering 3 different administrations were just revealed to have been lying about absolutely everything with regard to Afghanistan, it is a good idea to not believe the US government. Particularly if it involves spending taxpayer money to harm other people. If it involves sending anyone other than billionaire children off to die, get ptsd or get limbs blown off, don't believe the government.

Iran launches missiles against U.S. forces today. Looks like this is going to escalate to a full blown war.
