(Reuters) - Republican U.S. Representative Steve King wondered aloud on Wednesday whether the human race would still exist without rape and incest, setting off calls by Republicans and Democrats alike for him to step down, just months after he was condemned for remarks widely regarded as racist.

King made his remarks as he explained his anti-abortion position at a breakfast event in his home state of Iowa, the Des Moines Register reported.

“What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” King said in remarks to 50 members of the Westside Conservative Club during the event in Urbandale. The newspaper posted a video of the event on its website.

“Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages that happened throughout all these different nations, I know that I can’t say that I was not a part of a product of that,” he added.

Fellow Republican Representative Liz Cheney, a self-described conservative from Wyoming, said on Twitter, “Today’s comments by @RepSteveKingIA are appalling and bizarre. As I’ve said before, it’s time for him to go. The people of Iowa’s 4th congressional district deserve better.”

King last November was re-elected to his ninth term in Congress with just over 50 percent of the vote after years of double-digit victories, after being roundly criticized for support of candidates with white supremacist affiliations. Democrat J.D. Scholten who lost to King last year is again running to unseat King in 2020.

I call a spade, a spade, in this case, a nazi a nazi.
Especially when you have Trump supporters waving around swastikas and he refuses to condemn them.
They'll just find some other way to feed their persecution complex.
you can't be truly a nazi unless you are jewish, all the main leaders from adolf (one of the rothchild's bastard sons) down to the guy that sold shrimp as see monkeys to fund the nazi party are all jewish
No one is starving in America and based on how morbidly obese the illegals coming across the border are they aren't starving in latin america either.
Are you well?

Big think question right here. He's earned my vote for asking something so brave.


Public’s Priorities for U.S. Asylum Policy: More Judges for Cases, Safe Conditions for Migrants. Most continue to favor legal status for undocumented immigrants

The American public is broadly critical of the way that the federal government is dealing with the increased number of people seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border. When it comes to what should be done about the situation, large majorities say it is important to increase the number of judges handling asylum cases and to provide safe and sanitary conditions for asylum seekers.

Public’s top priorities for dealing with asylum seekers: More judges for asylum cases, safe conditions Nearly two-thirds of Americans (65%) say the federal government is doing a very bad (38%) or somewhat bad (27%) job dealing with the increased number of people seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border; just 33% say the government is doing a good job, according to the new survey by Pew Research Center conducted July 22-Aug. 4 among 4,175 adults.

Broad public support for path to legal status for undocumented immigrants. Nearly three-quarters of Americans (72%) say undocumented immigrants should be allowed to stay in the U.S. legally if certain conditions are met. This is a modest decline from 77% in March 2017, with most of the change occurring among Republicans.

Then why aren't illegal immigrants actually put in regular jails instead of detention centers? We wouldn't even be having this conversation if that was actually the case.
Illegal border crossing is a misdemeanor and we rarely jail people for shit like jaywalking.

In this case I don’t need an assumption at all. I have facts. You do not despite repeated requests for you to provide them. You have failed and outed your brainlet status.

why would anyone believe Project Veritas?

it's run by that muckraker James O'Keefe who's repeatedly lied and doctored up footage about things in a biased manner.
Their bias is obvious. Their lack of rigor is only slightly less so.

A Fox News poll released Thursday showed President Trump losing head-to-head matchups against four of the top Democratic presidential primary contenders.

The poll found Trump with 39 percent support among registered voters in head-to-head matchups against Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). The poll found Sanders beating Trump with 48 percent, Warren winning over Trump with 45 percent and Harris winning with 46 percent support.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, meanwhile, beat Trump in the theoretical matchup with 50 percent support among those surveyed, compared to Trump's 38 percent.

Among Democratic primary contenders, Warren saw the largest gain in support in the poll - an 8 percent jump from last month's survey. Warren, according to the poll, took second place behind Biden with the support of 20 percent of Democratic primary voters.

Sanders dropped to third, now at 10 percent in the poll and the only other candidate aside from Warren and Biden scoring double digit support among voters.

The polls were plenty accurate the first time, Trump lost the popular vote by a huge margin. He only won by about 80k votes spread over 3 swing states, that's well within the margin of error for the polls.
Biden will be the next president
>The polls were plenty accurate... Trump lost the popular vote by a huge margin
Yep, the polls were accurate. But the conclusion that most reached was that Hillary would surely win. Which was way off, obviously. Hillary had 3 million more votes. I guess that's huge, but it still didn't matter

>He only won by about 80k votes spread over 3 swing states
Fascinating. He won because he had 304 electoral votes, vs. Clinton's 227
Not the other anon, but you are correct here. The pundit class was wrong about his election, which a few outliers. I have not heard the pundit class, as a whole, make the same prognostications this go-round.
You are correct about the EC and the other anon is correct that Trump got there by the skin of his teeth.

Before I start, can we avoid linking this story to politics? National politics has only the smallest bearing on the business cycle in the aggregate. And no, nobody should cheer for a recession - real people suffer.


The yield curve is blaring a recession warning.

The spread between the U.S. 2-year and 10-year yields on Wednesday turned negative for the first time since 2007. Such a development has occurred ahead of each and every U.S. recession of the last 50 years, sometimes leading by as much as 24 months.

“Historically, the 2-10 has had better predictive ability of recession than equities,” Sri Kumar, president of the Santa Monica, California-based Sri-Kumar Global Strategies, told Fox Business.

“If you depended on equities to tell you whether you are entering into a recession you did not do well. For example, October, November of 2006, exactly one year before the Great Recession began, the 2-10- inverted. Equities did well in the first half of 2008 when we were in a recession and oil prices hit a peak in May of 2008 when we were very much in a recession.

European officials in Dublin and Brussels have immediately rejected Boris Johnson's new demand to renegotiate Britain's Brexit deal, ahead of his meetings later this week with Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron.

The prime minister wrote to European Council President Donald Tusk on Monday demanding that the EU drop the Northern Ireland backstop from the agreement.

He described the backstop — which seeks to avoid border checks between Northern Ireland and Ireland after Brexit — as "anti-democratic and inconsistent with the sovereignty of the UK" because it could keep the UK bound in the EU's customs union.

He instead suggested that "alternative arrangements "and technological solutions must be implemented at the Irish border in exchange for new unspecified "commitments" on the border from the UK

The EU has yet to formally respond to the letter.

However, Brussels sources once again ruled out any renegotiation to the withdrawal agreement, which contains the backstop.

"There was a two-and-a-half year negotiating process in which the EU compromised, including on the question of the backstop," a source told the Guardian on Monday evening.

"The withdrawal agreement is not open for renegotiation and the backstop is not open for change. A legally operable backstop to avoid a hard border remains central to the withdrawal agreement for the EU27."

A trove of court documents unsealed Friday detail allegations by an alleged victim of wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein that while working as a teenage locker room attendant at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort nearly two decades ago she was recruited to give Epstein massages that often involved sexual activity.

The roughly 2,000 pages of records released by the Manhattan-based 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals also show the same woman, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, appears to have claimed she had sex with a series of prominent men — including former politicians — at Epstein’s direction while working as a staff masseuse for the investment adviser, who eventually came under investigation in 2006 for sex trafficking over his involvement with teenage girls.

As a follow up to this. Looking further into the matter it appears that the first mention of Epstein being banned was in a 2007 article by the NY post. So I suppose he could have been banned anytime between 2004 and 2007. Importantly this would be during the investigation into Epstein, which began two weeks after the auction. So it is definitely plausible Trump banned him in response to the investigation

>I told you it’s laborer capital earlier mong.
No, you didn't. This post is the first post in which you mentioned "laborer capital." You did nothing of the sort earlier.

>Humans who produce labor. Pull my dick out of your ass for one sec.
Humans are not "human capital." Your source doesn't say it is. The only humans who are capital are slaves.

>I’m tired of arguing semantics with some sperglord with a Napoleon complex.
When you say spectacularly retarded shit like "labor is capital", that's not semantics. That's you just being completely dead fucking wrong and trying to say labor = labor capital = human capital = capital is you attempting to salvage your complete and utter fucking shit argument, right after you attempted to save it by referring to "Marxist theory" which you've never read.

Maybe if you don't want to get into these arguments don't say retarded shit and defend it to the death.
I would say that it is almost certain that Trump had him "banned" in response to the investigation as well as the ill will from the bidding war where Epstein said "Trump can't afford this property", thus hitting Trump in his ego and unraveling their friendship.

Now this next part is pure speculation but we know for a fact that Epstein had dirt on all the pedos who came to his pedo play time - what if Epstein tried a power play on Trump along the lines of "I have photos of you fucking children, I own you." That would drive Trump into a private frenzy. His tepid "banned from mar a lago never knew that guy" is so uncharacteristicly vague for Trump - when given the opportunity he will literally say HA HA HE FUCKED CHILDREN FUCK THAT GUY MAGA.
This is so disrespectful to Jefferey and his family smh
This reads like the old “thanks Obama” meme shit. Get a grip bud. Just bc you have a weird hate fetish over trump doesn’t mean he’s responsible if some prisoner dies. Wake up


Joe Biden made his first public appearance in more than a week on Friday, but it was quickly overshadowed by the former vice president’s propensity for gaffes.
The 76-year-old Biden, who had been on vacation resting since Sunday, appeared at a fundraiser in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The event was Biden’s first since retreating from the public eye after a series of high-profile gaffes not only consumed his campaign last week, but also renewed doubts about his fitness for office.

Instead of allaying the mounting concerns about his candidacy, Biden added to them on Friday when addressing donors in Delaware. While discussing a recent speech in which he accused President Donald Trump of fanning “the flames of white supremacy,” Biden mistakenly claimed it took place in Burlington, Vermont, rather than Burlington, Iowa.

Even though the former vice president quickly corrected his mistake, the gaffe underscored all of the problems plaguing his campaign in recent days.

Biden’s troubles began innocently enough during a campaign swing through Iowa. During a stump speech at the Iowa State Fair, Biden confusingly told voters that “we choose truth over facts.”

“Everybody knows who Donald Trump is. Even his supporters know who he is. We got to let him know who we are. We choose unity over division,” he said towards the end of his stump speech. “We choose science over fiction. We choose truth over facts.”
As Breitbart News reported, the comment was likely the result of Biden flubbing an applause line he frequently uses on the trail: “we have to choose hope over fear, unity over division and, maybe most importantly, truth over lies.”

Those in the audience, many of whom were likely getting their first opportunity to see Biden in person, were not clued into that context, however.

New green card restrictions likely would've excluded Trump and Cuccinelli's ancestors

In 1883 Emma Lazarus wrote “The New Colossus” — “give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free” — which is emblazoned on the Statue of Liberty. Had she read the Trump administration’s proposed rule for restricting the legal immigrants who can obtain visas and green cards, Lazarus might have given top Trump administration officials Stephen Miller and Kenneth Cuccinelli painful smacks upside their heads.

The “Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds” rule is more than 800 pages long, but at the core, as explained by White House senior policy advisor Miller, are the following criteria. “Does the applicant speak English? Can they support themselves and their families financially? Do they have a skill that will add to the U.S. economy? Are they being paid a high wage?”

Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, tried to reconcile Miller’s criteria with Lazarus’ poem. He took the phrase “give me your tired, your poor” and added — “who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge.”

“The New Colossus” is not policy and legal immigration has ebbed and flowed throughout American history. But Lazarus, who was devoted to Jewish causes, set a standard by which to judge our compassion as a nation.

Allies to Joe Biden have been floating the idea of altering the former vice president's schedule in an effort to reduce the gaffes he has made in recent days.

The allies, growing increasingly nervous about Biden's verbal flubs, have said it's an approach that's been suggested to campaign officials on the heels of the former vice president’s stumbles.

Biden has a tendency to make the blunders late in the day, his allies say, particularly after a long swing on the road, like he had last week in Iowa. They say something needs to be done to give the candidate more down time as the campaign intensifies in the fall.

"He needs to be a strong force on the campaign trail, but he also has to pace himself," said one ally who has talked to members of the campaign team and others in the broader Biden World about how to move forward.

The ally said it was unclear whether the campaign would make any changes to Biden's schedule, particularly because Biden was criticized recently for not doing as many events as his Democratic rivals.

“I think you’ll see the same schedule and maybe even more Joe Biden,” one ally said. “Everyone wants to see Joe Biden be Joe Biden. If he’s held back in any way, that’s almost the antithesis of who he is.”

“I think it’s the wrong approach,” the ally added.

Biden’s age — he’ll be 77 in November — has been seen by some as a liability ever since he launched his campaign earlier this year. While he has been billed by those around him as the most electable Democrat to take on President Trump next year, some wonder if he has the zeal to compete.

The hill is about as center as it gets. But this isn’t really an opinion piece and it doesn’t use “statistics”, % are not statistics, that is a raw number analysis.
You literally need to argue against it using math.
I know you reaaaaaaaly like Bernie. He might even win the general. But that is less likely relative to Biden’s chances. So far in this thread we have collectively shown you this using numerous sources. I have not seen the same from you.
This looks like a decent prediction of the worst possible outcome for genuine liberals like Sanders. But the assessment neglects to account for a number factors working in favor of a non-establishment Dem (Sanders / Warren / Tulsi / Yang) victory in the primaries.

>People are creatures of habit — if they don’t vote, they don’t vote. Barring a national security crisis or economic downturn — two events over which the Democrats have zero control — it’s going to be nearly impossible for a turnout strategy to win.

People should be assumed creatures of habit if they're presented with the same choice as they've always been given and always made the same decision. The US has never had a workers' party. Trump might win no matter whom is picked to be the Dem nominee. But it would be nice if for once we could at least trial a candidate with a focused working class platform for the first time in modern US history.

Even then, in the mid terms we had record voter turnout. History doesn't always repeat itself.

>Protest voters are, by definition, a cantankerous lot.

Right, but the Trump ticket was also something of a protest vote for many who might be at least as willing to consider a Sanders. It's a mistake to assume that if Trump supporters find Hillary disagreeable, then they are bound to find Sanders or Warren moreso.

In any case, the one thing that will help the whole country and Democratic party is for voters to stop going meta. Leave campaigning to campaigns and logistics to the parties (so long as they operate more or less democratically) and just support the candidate one think would do the best job. That's how our system is designed to work optimally. Going meta has been one of the primary reasons for the dysfunction of our electoral politics.

Okay, so there's this cult that their church leader Naason Garcia has been detained for child rape and child pornography. His accomplices also have been detained however, there's a fourth one that's still at large. She fled to Mexico and sources say she's being protected by the church called La Luz Del Mundo. Let's try to find this bitch and bring her to justice!

This is why they'll never get the guns in the US, you're not going to get a cop to intentionally get shot at for $24,000 a year. Your local PD would be completely obliterated within a week, and then it would be nog crime time highlighting why guns work when the police can't protect you.

you are arguing the actual NRA argument lol
It's almost like we have uncontrolled borders which make enforcing laws limiting what citizens can own or acquire impossible.
