Former Vice President Joe Biden is significantly leading the Democratic primary race in South Carolina according to a poll released on Monday. Biden leads the field convincingly with 32 percent of the vote, according to a poll of voters conducted by Change Research, while Sen. Bernie Sanders only has 14 percent support. Kamala Harris comes in third place with 10 percent followed by Corey Booker and Beto O’Rourke tied at nine percent.

Biden has yet to officially announce his run for president.

Stacy Abrams, the former failed candidate for Georgia Governor, has not announced a 2020 campaign but currently has 7 percent support in South Carolina, tied with South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

Here is the full rundown:

Joe Biden — 32%

Bernie Sanders — 14%

Kamala Harris — 10%

Cory Booker — 9%

The Justice Department expects to release on Thursday a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report on President Trump, his associates and Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, setting the stage for further battles in Congress over the politically explosive inquiry.

Kerri Kupec, a spokeswoman for the department, said Monday that officials plan to issue the report to Congress and the public on Thursday morning.

“The Special Counsel ... did not draw a conclusion — one way or the other — as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction,” Barr wrote. “The Special Counsel states that ‘while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.’”

Barr and his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, examined the obstruction evidence laid out by Mueller’s team and concluded it did not rise to the level of obstruction of justice.

Since those findings were announced, congressional Democrats have been sharply critical of Barr’s handling of the Mueller report, accusing the attorney general of soft-pedaling the findings to protect the president.

The House Judiciary Committee is poised to issue a subpoena for the report’s redacted portions.

Barr is shielding four specific categories of information: grand jury material, details whose public release could harm ongoing investigations, any information that would “potentially compromise sources and methods” in intelligence collection, and anything that would “unduly infringe on the personal privacy and reputational interests of peripheral third parties.”

That last category of redaction suggests Barr wants to keep secret any derogatory information gathered by investigators about figures who ended up not being central to Mueller’s investigation.

The government of Ecuador has continued taking jabs at WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after effectively evicting him from its London embassy and allowing for his arrest. Ecuadorian officials, including the nation's president, have accused him of everything from crude behavior and poor pet ownership to turning their property into a "center for spying."

In an interview published by The Guardian newspaper, Ecuadorean President Lenin Moreno rejected claims that he had allowed for Assange's arrest as a reprisal for WikiLeaks purportedly leaking documents that sullied his name, including claims of secret bank accounts and hidden wealth.

Moreno insisted it was Assange's actions against other democratic countries, taken while he lived in Ecuador's embassy for seven years, that had led to the eviction.

"Any attempt to destabilize is a reprehensible act for Ecuador, because we are a sovereign nation and respectful of the politics of each country," Moreno told The Guardian. "We cannot allow our house, the house that opened its doors, to become a center for spying."

Ecuadorian officials have claimed that Assange's actions deteriorated before his arrest on Thursday, and included putting excrement on walls, leaving soiled laundry in the bathroom, and not properly looking after his cat.

>WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two U.S. House of Representatives committees have issued subpoenas to multiple financial institutions, including Deutsche Bank AG, for information on President Donald Trump’s finances, the panels’ Democratic leaders said on Monday.

>“The potential use of the U.S. financial system for illicit purposes is a very serious concern. The Financial Services Committee is exploring these matters, including as they may involve the president and his associates, as thoroughly as possible,” the committee’s chair, Maxine Waters, said in a statement.

>House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said in a statement the subpoenas issued included a “friendly subpoena to Deutsche Bank.”

>A 2018 financial disclosure form showed liabilities for Trump of at least $130 million to Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, a unit of the German bank. They are for properties including the Trump International Hotel in a former post office in Washington.

>Deutsche Bank said in January, shortly after Democrats took control of the House following the November elections, that it had received an inquiry from the two committees on its ties to the Republican president.

>Schiff said Deutsche bank had been cooperative. “We look forward to their continued cooperation and compliance,” he said.

>Kerrie McHugh, a Deutsche Bank spokeswoman, said the bank was engaged in a “productive dialogue” with the two committees. “We remain committed to providing appropriate information to all authorized investigations in a manner consistent with our legal obligations,” she said in an emailed statement.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference had already revealed that Kremlin-linked trolls were ordered to write social media posts not only in opposition to Clinton but in support of Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump. This study offers a picture of how extensive this effort was.

"There is no question that Sanders was central to their strategy. He was clearly used as a mechanism to decrease voter turnout for Hillary Clinton," Darren Linvill, associate professor of communications and one of the researchers who worked on the study, told The Post.

Linvill said the tweets analyzed as part of the study "give us a much clearer understanding of the tactics they were using. It was certainly a higher volume than people thought."

Sanders was "just a tool" to the Russians, Linvill added, and "a wedge to drive into the Democratic Party."

No matter what comes from this Presidency it was not worth it. The country would have been better off if Trump lost in 2016 even if Dems didn't gain enough seats in the House or Senate. Trump was and still is dangerously unqualified and unfit for the job just based on the rhetoric he spews constantly that his supporters lap up, and he's also fundamentally undermining the institutions that the country was built on.

While Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is well-liked by voters in her home district in New York City, the congresswoman's constituents largely don't identify with "democratic socialism" — a label Ocasio-Cortez uses to describe her progressive politics.

Voters in New York's 14th congressional district, located in the Bronx and Queens, also broke from Ocasio-Cortez on her forceful stand against Amazon's proposed opening of a new headquarters in Queens, according to a Siena College poll published Wednesday.

57% of her constituents said Amazon's reversal was bad for New York, and 58% were in favor of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's attempts to cut a new deal with the e-commerce giant.

While Ocasio-Cortez considers herself a democratic socialist, just a quarter of her constituents identity with that label. 70% of voters say they use other labels to describe their political beliefs.

To some extent you are right and it is one of the reasons why Europeans are not very pleased with the EU.
But the EU does not entirely control the national economies. Most countries still have many markets that they prefer to leave to public/state enterprises or some other kind of mechanism that isn't entirely market based.

Armed police opened fire on a car as it was driven at them having just "deliberately rammed" the Ukrainian ambassador's official vehicle in London on Saturday morning.

The incident occurred outside the Ukrainian embassy in Holland Park, Kensington, at around 8:30.

Police said they had been called following reports of a car in collision with a number of parked vehicles near the Ukrainian Embassy.

Upon arrival, a car, believed to be a silver Mercedes, was driven at the officers which resulted in firearms and a Taser being discharged.

The car ended up pointing away from the embassy with the front near-side window shattered, possibly by shots. Shopping bags and a Stanley tool box were visible in the boot, which remained open as officers combed the surrounding road.

LONDON (Reuters) - WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested by British police on Thursday after they were invited into the Ecuadorean embassy where he has been holed up since 2012.

“Julian Assange, 47, has today, Thursday 11 April, been arrested by officers from the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) at the Embassy of Ecuador,” police said.

Police said they arrested Assange after being “invited into the embassy by the Ambassador, following the Ecuadorean government’s withdrawal of asylum.”

Um. Does no one remember the reports that this happened months ago? Am I crazy? I saw reports that my Saviour Assange was dragged out of the embassy like over a year ago. Was that fake news? Any bros remember what I remember?
Why is everyone acting like this just happened?
I’m positive that this happened months ago.

Maybe I’m from a parallel universe or some shit, but I remember reports of my boy being dragged out of the embassy and getting a bag put over his head as he got stuffed into a rape van. Meanwhile local police stood by and let it happen.


Seriously? No one remembers this? I thought this was in the news again because the United States of Dickery finally figured out what they wanted to charge my personal Jesus with.

>“Hate speech has no place on YouTube,” stated the video-sharing platform’s press account in a tweet, “We’ve invested heavily in teams and technology dedicated to removing hateful comments / videos. Due to the presence of hateful comments, we disabled comments on the livestream of today’s House Judiciary Committee hearing.”

>The hateful YouTube comments appeared to be mainly anti-Israel and antisemitic remarks, but when users began to notice that the option for them to post comments to the livestream was no longer available, they simply started commenting the same rhetoric on other livestreams of the hearing.

Is "racist" a dehumanizing term?
Is "hate speech" the same as "blaspheme"?

AMBALAVAO, Madagascar — Babies wail as a nurse tries to reassure mothers who have come to vaccinate their children. They fear a measles epidemic that has killed more than 1,200 people in this island nation where many are desperately poor.

As Madagascar faces its largest measles outbreak in history and cases soar well beyond 115,000, resistance to vaccinating children is not the driving force.

Measles cases are rising in the United States and other parts of the world, in part the result of misinformation that makes some parents balk at a crucial vaccine. New York City is now trying to halt a measles outbreak by ordering mandatory vaccinations in one Brooklyn neighborhood.

In Madagascar, many parents would like to protect their children but face immense challenges including the lack of resources.

Obama told a town hall meeting in Berlin, Germany Saturday that he is concerned about "rigidity" among some liberal Democrats who attack others in the party for "straying from purity on the issues."


Obama said, according to the Washington Post, that Democrats sometimes create "what's called a circular firing squad, where you start shooting at your allies because one of them is straying from purity on the issues.....When that happens, typically the overall effort and movement weakens....You can't set up a system in which you don't compromise on anything. But you also can't operate in a system where you compromise on everything; everything's up for grabs .That requires a certain amount of internal reflection and deliberations."

Obama, who was elected to two terms and remains popular in his party, admitted his Affordable Care Act of 2010 didn't contain everything he wanted. But he argued that it was the best health-care measure he could persuade Congress to approve.

Obama also appeared to jab at his successor. Asked if he meditates, Obama said, "I definitely think that there's some politicians who could use some meditation. There is no doubt about that. I can think of a few who, you know, should just sit there for a little bit and reflect. Find some inner peace."

The event in Berlin was sponsored by the Obama Foundation.

That's what's democrats are terrible at. Showing people that if they pay more into one thing, it'll mean they pay a lot less for something else.
Like with Climate change, you have all this hand wringing over the cost, but look at all the costs for damages caused by climate changed induced disasters. It escapes people to connect them.

The [Mueller] investigation did not specifically address the issue of whether Trump, because of his position of being financially and economically compromised by the Russians, is aiding and abetting Russian foreign policy to the harm of U.S. foreign policy.

Those are the issues that are not addressed by the special counsel’s office. And it’s that aiding and abetting, treasonous behavior by Trump and his close associates that I hope Congress takes a further look at as it pursues various investigations.

That depends on the economy.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2019/03/06/trump-quinnipiac-university-poll/3076827002/
That goes beyond his voter base of 35% who will support him even if he announces he did conspire with the Russians to steal the 2016 elections.

Meaning there are people who don't care if Trump is a criminal if the economy is doing 'well' for him. if you want to see a 6-10 million win, you're going to have to tank the economy.

A republic binging on gerrymandering of conservatives. Also being a representative republic in the age of the internet doesn’t disagree with popularly elected presidents. Especially when said president loses by 3 million, larger than almost every city in America. You can claim what you want bc you’re a partisan faggot, but you’re wrong.

Even in smaller district races liberals could win close to 70 percent of the vote and lose the electoral split. It’s unamerican and since the GOP is in control of the gerrmandered areas, the neoliberal conservatives (corporate libertarians) have bought up the representatives in these areas to do their bidding.

How’s it feel to vote against yourself? Might as well tie that noose you’ve been thinking of tying

Nice bait. Trump loses by 6 million votes in the least which should divert all the unrepresentative gerrymandering your cunt party subverts American freedom and democracy with.
