North Carolina's Landmark Ruling Against Partisan Gerrymanders

Federal judges have yet again struck down North Carolina’s congressional districts as an unconstitutional gerrymander, dealing Republicans a blow and throwing the state’s maps into chaos just months before a pivotal midterm election.



The sky is blue.

Was it?

In the next 48 hours, the Trump Administration is planning to issue policy on how states can stop people from receiving Medicaid coverage if they don’t have a job. And they plan to put this in action in their first state— Kentucky.

This would mean all retirement home patients or sick adults who are bed ridden would cease to receive any medicare coverage, forcing them, despite their illness or inability and disability, to be employed in order to receive Medicaid benefits

This could lead to anything from hospital closures, to mass death of people who require disability to live, age minor to elderly

Not good

If there was a massacre in Haiti wouldn't the mainstream media say so?

This is how they plan on getting that 3% growth rate.

Good. I'm tired of people treating Tim Hortons like some sacred Canadian icon that can do no wrong.

Me too, this country fucking sucks


Try being an American you fucking lightweight.

Being an American is suffering

Here's the goods on the Fusion GPS testimony.


Have at it.

Are the Republicans trying to lose the mid-terms?

They literally won't, though.
The white classcucks in Kencucky would let Paul Ryan and Trump impregnate their daughters and kill their sons if it meant more legislation to screw the blacks/chinks/wetbacks/Muslims.

Pastor Billy Bob at Billy Bob Sr's Bible Believin Church dun said that Jesus said to vote Republican so heck I'll dun do it

Is anyone else saying this besides one man on twitter?

Not Apu!

very good image



Tim Hortons should just be fucking nationalized at this point. If a sub-par coffee chain is to be seen as one of our major national institutions then it might as well pay a livable wage

Question: If Trump gets slammed with a money laundering charge, which seems more and more likely, what do you suppose will happen?

If Trump is really taken down with that, he could spill the beans about all the briberind he did during the time he was only a businessman on Twiter, just to make sure he doesn't fall alone.

Donald Trump: America could 'conceivably' return to Paris climate change agreement

^this is the detail that trumptards will forget about because >muh commie 'bama

Why stop there? Get the banks and railways as well. Hell even garbage collection has been privatized. Libtards ruined everything.

Can we get a source on that?

the FARC haven't been revolutionary in years though, they're every bit as cynical as the NPA in the Philippians

They'll quietly offer to let him step down prior to making any moves, the GOP will blame all the unpopular legislation on Trump and laugh for joy as Mike "puppet" Pence assumes control of the WH

At the very least, the Trump fandom will die down and we won't have to hear MAGA shit once he goes away.


Is there anyway we could start a shell-company that literally does nothing but hires people to a "payroll" so they can get their benefits back?

What will the pending destruction of the American empire do to the elites there? Will they go full nazi germany and start invading places and forcing them to buy Amerifat debt or something?

This is a great idea.

The job search has to be "approved" so that sort of thing wouldn't be possible. It's pretty fucked up how the elite are now literally rationing health care in order to make sick people work. They truly do deserve a what is coming to them.


I honestly don't know if I'm actually socdem or not, since I think proper social democracy would include the nationalization of hulking behemoths like Tims, Canadian Tire, renationalize AC and CN Rail, the 417, the big institutional banks

I also think it would be best to nationalize all natural resource extraction and hydro projects. I don't know why we aren't allowed to have our own Aramco or Statoil. I'd also love to see some form of construction job guarantee to fix the country's infrastructure

Also minimum jail sentences for financial crimes

Magnitude 7.6 Quake Hits Caribbean Sparking Tsunami Alert

Not suprising

Are Republicans trying to lose one of there strongest states in the country?

The problem is that there is no leftist organization in Kentucky. The only organized groups there is conservatives and the far right. We need more leftist organization there. Redneck Revolt might help, but it won’t be much because of how there idpol and everyone else’s idpol is so different.

Canada = America 2.0

Trump broke Zeno's paradox. He keeps falling lower and lower, without ever reaching rock-bottom. I have never seen a government official of any country abuse power for personal gain so undisguisedly, not even African tinpot dictators.

I'd like to point out that deadly mudslides are the most stsreotypical 3rd world natural disaster par excellence.

And speaking of 3rd world…

How many people know about Le Joola?

No, America will become Africa with snow and white people while American elites will move to Canada/Australia/NewZealand/Britain suck those countries dry of all there resources and wealth like they did to America. American urban and suburban workers will move to Africa for work. America will be left as an underpopulated, poor, rural, unindustrialized nation. And considering how spooked americans who live in the center of the country are it’ll probably be a Christian theocracy as well.


Read them in that order for maximum effect

What’s next. The offshore oil wells get bought by Saudi Arabia.

This is one of the dumbest predictions I've ever read, I'm sorry

more likely to be given away tbh
