Fortunately the Dems are going hog wild and pig crazy with their rush to the left. They're adopting a number of radical positions that are out of step with mainstream America. Do they think they can turn American voters' opinion that far left in just the next eighteen months?

I think there's a very good chance that elections are rigged, that the DOJ is corrupt , that US intelligence services have been weaponized, and the media is spewing pure propaganda in every direction.

anything is possible from here on.....

Only if you're serious, rev. And in the privacy of your home, not in public.

Seems to me the 'new' baby hard-line dead-set Socialist Dems are scaring the old-timey Socialist-but-not-out-loud-too-much Old Guard; yet the oldsters can't be too vocal, publicly, about trying to shut the youngsters up. That part is comical. Hopefully, the real conservative Repubs will have the sense to play them to the hilt for the '20 elections. Ace

Give me $1 every time a Liberal lies, I'll give you $5 every time one tells the truth; I'll end up a wealthy man, you'll end up broke.
If pro-gunners are as murderous as anti-gunners claim, why are there so many anti-gunners still running their mouths?

Indeed!

You can almost hear ‘em: “What are they doing? Sure, we want all that stuff... but hasn’t anybody told them? You’re not supposed to say it...”

And yeah: hopefully normal Americans will sit up and take notice: “These idiots have lost touch with reality....

It's encouraging to see the old line Socialist Democrats are as timid and uncommitted (beyond mere rhetoric) as the Republican RINOs. I guess you get that way after getting reelected for a few terms and making big bucks in the Swamp.

You’ve hit on it, Jeff: what they all want most of all, is to stay right where they are: in that ‘catbird seat’ where they wield power and influence. They’ve become addicted to enjoying the feeling of privilege and prestige, of being that important person who everyone looks up to. And where a lucrative job awaits them after they retire.

Staying in office, getting re-elected, not being voted out of the DC Club of Important People: that becomes their primary concern. Not doing what’s right; doing whatever they think will keep them in power.

Of course, they’ll insist it’s not like that.... and some of ‘em may even believe it: they may have convinced themselves that the reason they want to remain in power, is that it’s “best for our country”...

But as an old counseling prof advised me: pay attention to what they do, not what they say....

all the nonsense coming from our political class, past and present, emboldens our enemies.

China, Russia, Iran merely plan to wait out this President, see if they can get a better deal

in the meantime they create profiles on all the national politicians that run to a microphone and declare themselves essential

gathering intelligence is as easy as turning on the cable news

want to "influence" an election, take the political issue of the day and double down on social media.

the disaster on the southern border is an example

want to create economic pressure on the US, don't sweat it, the opposing party will talk down the US economy for you, got to win the next election,the Country be damned

an united front against our enemy is not a possibility.....

You paint a grim picture... which I can’t find any fault with: unfortunately, I suspect you’re right... one thing the war against Trump has shown us, is how prevalent the Deep State is, on both sides of the aisle...

I suspect that what most upset them, was the fact that this last Presidential election somehow escaped being rigged: to everyone’s surprise, millions of people came out and voted Donald Trump into office...

And now the powers-that-be are bound and determined to not let that happen again....

Back to the subject of the OP: the MIT Technology Review of 4/10/19 has an article entitled: “Chinese scientists have put human brain genes in monkeys—and yes, they may be smarter”.

Nanobot-powered cloud-connected brains may be possible in the distant future.... but genetically-engineered humans are coming soon...

LB...Here's a thought... putting human brain cells into socialist libs might possibly make them smarter. A least, maybe smarter than monkeys.
BUT... this nano cloud thingy-do could be really cool if we engineer it right!

How 'bout if we insert nano-brain thingys into all these socialist libs brains connecting into a one-way pathway into Rush Limbaugh's brain!

OMG!! Could you just imagine hearing AOC sounding intelligent... how about Bernie "feeling a new burn". Even Polosi might benefit with an infusion of functional verbal literacy.

This could be HUGE!

Awesome! I think the idea has great potential....

As long as we have ways to make sure that it’s not a two-way connection: I wouldn’t want to do that to Rush...



As far as AOC sounding intelligent... though I understand the concept... my imagination just won’t stretch that far...
