I think if Trump was impeached, you'd have significant civil unrest.  Nearly 40% of the country still approves of him despite everything he's done to date.

How many people will immediately consider his ouster a (((globalist))) liberal conspiracy?  How many of those people have positions in state governments, the national guard, the police force, or live in big compounds in the woods?

Eventually America is going to have to lance that boil.  When that day comes, it won't be pretty.

Of course.  That was the Stormfront playbook all along: "support Trump as a wedge to gain greater support for white supremacy, when everything goes wrong, blame it on Trump's poor morals, New York and Jared Kushner the Jew".

They were literally talking about this stuff the day after Trump won.

I'm not convinced Pence isn't involved.  He's been better at hiding it, but Pence is either part of it, or he's so completely oblivious to what is happening that he should be impeached on those grounds anyway.

Pence headed up the transition team.  Flynn informed the transition team he was under Federal investigation for working as a lobbyist for Turkey at that time, by his own admission.  Rep Elijah Cummings also sent a letter to Pence warning him about Flynn's work for Turkey.  Pence had no problem booting out Cristie and his supporters, but left Flynn in place.

Pence also gave cover to the lie that Comey was fired on the advice of the Deputy Attorney General, despite knowing that Trump had determined Comey would be sacked before asking Rosenstein for the legal reasoning to justify it.

Pence was picked by Manafort for the VP slot.  We all know about Manafort and Ukraine/Russia.  What isn't widely reported is that Russia has significant sway in the evangelical community in recent years.  The Russian government is aggressively promoting Orthodox Christianity, and aggressively expanding its contacts with American evangelicals as "brothers in arms" against both Islam and secular liberalism.  Sounds like the kind of thing Pence might be in to.

Pence is cleverer than Trump.  But he's involved.  And he's not cleverer than the world's best funded intelligence agencies.

There's a reason I've taken all of July as my holiday time  :lulz:  Between the summer school students and the heat, this place is going to be a shitshow.

And I'm going to be somewhere in central Europe, visiting places of Culture and affordable, cold beer instead.

The other thing that could solve this problem would be to remove all window restrictors.  It wouldn't be perfect, but it would allow more of the hot air to leave, so it would be cooler in the evenings and overnight.  This is against the law, as student accommodations are required to have restricted windows, but given their attitude to other health and safety laws, you'd think that wouldn't bother them.

But no.  In this particular case, they follow the law to the letter.

I don't know...I'm at least 90% sure Kushner did something illegal.  He's a spoiled little rich boy who's never been told no and made his entire career on the back of his father's fortune.  I know the type.  He's done something, and Bannon hates his guts.  Bannon will squeal to the FBI, and the FBI will nail his balls to a wall the first chance they get.

I suspect the only reason something hasn't already happened is the suspicion that Kushner was the middle-man for Trump.  It makes sense.  I've heard from connected reporters rumours a while back that Flynn was acting as the middle man for someone higher up in the Trump admin.  Obviously, we now know that's Kushner.  That's why the FBI didn't give Flynn immunity - they already knew what they needed, and had their eyes on a bigger prize.

Finally, the heat has hit the office.

There's no actual heatwave per se in the UK right now, but once it gets above a certain outside temperature, the inside temperature here rises dramatically, due to terrible venting.

Which means we have about 50 million complaints from students about it being too hot to sleep or study.  Every year,without fail, this happens.  And every year, without fail, no-one looks into installing air conditioning or similar.

Confirmed by the WaPo that Kushner was holding secret talks with the Russian ambassador, Kislyak, to set up a private backchannel in December.

This means that Kushner, Flynn and Erik Prince were all having secret meetings with Russian officials to create a secret backchannel that circumvented US national security.

Labour only 5 points behind the Tories.

Of course, it's worth noting that under May, 17,000 police officers have left the service, at least some of that due to budget cuts and the general Tory attitude towards the police.

We've seen this before, with the Environment Agency, "let's use the Army to plug the gap in vital services we've underfunded".  The Army itself is underfunded, btw, but since they have to follow legal orders...

Anyway, all I'm saying is that we wouldn't need to call in the Army, at a time when we're debating going back into Afghanistan in force, if we didn't cut police budgets.

There are other things you can do with your police and Armed forces though, Katie Hopkins just said so:-

Yes, I saw her comments on the morning.   Fortunately, it seems this time around there is a significant amount of pushback over her comments.

Also, as the Economist(!) pointed out, Corbyn's own plan would have the UK borrowing less than it currently does, which would (indirectly) help in paying back the national debt.

I mean, if you can't even get The Economist on side, on fiscal policy, as a Tory government...

Allegedly it's going to pay off the national debt.

I'll let you look up those actual figures for a laugh.  What it's really going into is tax cuts.

Edit: the Labout and (IIRC) Lib Dem manifestos are both fully costed.

Thanks, though the birthday on my FB profile is fake.

But then, the Queen can have two birthdays, so I can as well.

Reliability.  Nails go everywhere - everyone gets hurt.  Gases disperse in open areas, where there are likely to be most targets.  Even in enclosed areas, they don't do very well (sarin attacks in Tokyo should have killed hundreds, not six people).  Technical expertise is above and beyond that for normal bomb-making, requires more exotic components likely to be on watch lists, and may be harder to hide on a person as well.  Cost factors in too, nails are cheap.  Don't even actually need nails, just a bunch of scrap metal stripped apart to ensure sharp edges will work fine.

Also, most terrorists are not very imaginative.  When they are...that's when you get Ramzi Yousef, or Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
