Trump documents case dismissed by federal judge
  • If push comes to shove your passport is only the first step. You would need to actually find a country to take you, and countries don't hand out citizenship like candy unless you're rich. Without a second citizenship, you would be very restricted in where you can work.

    Your best bet is if your parents or grandparents came from abroad, some countries have blanket policies to have 1st or 2nd generations come back to their ancestral homeland. It very much varies by country, you would have to do your own research. It might be worth doing as a last resort.

  • A NYTimes photographer took a picture of Trump a moment before he was struck by a bullet
  • Hahaha, I remember that discussion. The mod originally wanted to ban all pics with a political subject at all, but then figured that people might be assholes and report rainbows and shit. Settled on "any politician from any country " as a compromise.

    Sorry, this picture has to go, no matter how interesting it is as capturing an impactful moment in time.

  • [Trump Shooting] Suspect was registered as Republican voter, state records show
  • If law enforcement sees a guy on a rooftop with a gun threatening a crowd of people, though, that's an acceptable situation for "shoot first, ask questions later". That shot that killed the guy probably saved other lives.

  • Bernie Sanders urges Dems to 'stop the bickering' and back Biden
  • Swapping candidates would look really, really bad.... unless he comes up and says "I had a talk with my doctor, he says I've developed a chronic condition that I didn't know about past year. I can't do it anymore, but here, vote for my VP, who you all already voted for once anyway, and would take over anyway if this thing kills me".

    He can leave out that the chronic condition is just notgonnawinatall, and his doctor is also his pollster.

  • Bernie Sanders: Joe Biden for President
  • There is a person that Joe Biden specifically picked as his understudy, who is ready to step into the job at a moments notice. Why not her?

    You will reply with a poll that says that she won't do any better, but all those polls are working with a hypothetical. If Harris becomes the nominee, and that hypothetical becomes reality, I think the polls will show a real bump as well. She'll lose about 20 or 30 votes from the ACAB posters here, yet gain tens of thousands more from people who might be on the fence about voting at all. And the only thing standing between us and Fascism is a few thousand votes from the right zip codes.

  • Trump challenging Nancy Pelosi to debate is ‘usual projection of his own insanity,’ her spokesperson says
  • A quick-thinking opponent could absolutely counter it. She could say "Hey, Donald, you didn't answer the question. It had nothing to do with immigration. Let me answer it for you. Your position is X, Y, and Z, which is bad for Americans. Mine is A, B, and C, which is good."

    Can Joe do that?

  • EPA chief spars with Boebert over Chevron decision: ‘Do you understand the ruling?’
  • I think it's a reference to Jasmine Crockett's "Bleach Blonde Bad Built Butch Body" comment indirectly directed at MTG. Although I don't think Boebert has ever bleached her hair. Her look is unique enough that she might be the exception and the one woman who doesn't have to bleach her hair to get her Fox Commentator gig after losing her seat.

  • AOC Moves to Impeach Supreme Court Justices Thomas and Alito
  • The motion will get assigned to a committee, run by Republicans, where it will die. Even if there is a sympathetic Republican on that committee, all House members are up for re-election in November, and voting for this is a sure way to get the MAGAs all up in their grill and would likely lead to that person losing a ton of MAGA support, and likely losing their job.

    AOC knows this and is doing this to help Democrats in vulnerable districts, to help turn the House in the next Congress. "Elect us into the majority, and we will actually look into this."

  • AOC files articles of impeachment against Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito
  • It also tries to help Democratic congressional candidates in close races. Once these get thrown in the bin, they can remind voters that if they flip enough seats, they can have meaningful impeachment hearings in the next Congress.

  • Supreme Court says marketer is not entitled to a trademark for 'Trump too small' T-shirts

    The phrase “TRUMP TOO SMALL” stems from a memorable moment in the 2016 Republican presidential debates, during which Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., made a crude joke about the size of Trump’s hands.

    “And you know what they say about guys with small hands,” Rubio quipped.

    apnews.com Biden challenges Trump to 2 debates but won’t participate in nonpartisan commission's debates

    President Joe Biden says he won’t participate in the campaign debates sponsored by a nonpartisan commission, instead challenging Republican Donald Trump to a pair of debates.

    Biden challenges Trump to 2 debates but won’t participate in nonpartisan commission's debates

    Biden’s campaign proposed that the first debate between the presumptive Democratic and Republican nominees be held in late June and the second in September before early voting begins. Trump responded to the letter in an interview with Fox News digital, calling the proposed dates “fully acceptable to me” and joked about providing his own transportation.

    Clueless Tourist and Parking

    Hi all! I'll be visiting with my family soon. I go to San Jose/Santa Clara often for work, but this will be my first time in the area as a tourist in 20 years. Were have 3 days planned for San Francisco on the trip, from a hotel near SFO. We have a rental car, and are 5 people, so it may make sense to drive. The hotel isn't walkable to BART or Caltrain, so if we were going to take those into the city we'd have to park at the station anyway. (South San Francisco would probably be the closest station).

    I'm planning to park the car for the day and take the MUNI most places, since it's free for teens. Any suggestions on safe garages? I don't mind paying to make sure the car is secure. If there's a good garage around Union Station, that may be the best bet because we can get anywhere. But it might be nice to park closer to the Presidio for the day we do things there.

    Any suggestions? My coworkers who live in the Bay Area think I'm crazy to take a car into SF at all, but surely there are some safe places to park?

    We're a bunch of nerds, and will hit up the Exploratorium. (We have a fourth day planned at the Chabot Center and Berkeley, and other days further afield). Any other suggestions for nerdy things to see would be appreciated. (We already have the Wave Organ on the list....)

    Thanks!
