Here in Westchester County, NY, we've had a front row seat to the comings and goings of the Clinton family (Chappaqua's about 20 mins. southwest of us), as well as the offspring of The Donald (Bedford and Briarcliff Manor are adjacent to Chappaqua, to the northeast and west of it, respectively), over the years.
Apologies for the hit and run. Have been perusing Twitter throughout the day and this story is developing and is now the top trending item there. Haven't read the "official" report from the lame-o Politico or the alleged savage takedown in the Wapo. But thought I'd take a quick sampling of some of the tweets to let the C99 community see for ourselves what's going on and to discuss it if it's of interest.
"What is America's biggest problem? Not socialism in Russia, but in America! They want to take your pickup truck. They want to take away your hamburger. This is what Stalin dreamt about but never achieved."

A blog titled "State of Nature" has as today's feature a question, asked to a number of prominent American activist celebrities: "Should the American Left unite behind Bernie Sanders?" It's fun to read if you like that kind of thing.
No Mas, if you will.

I just couldn't resist bringing this story from Sunday's WaPo to the attention of readers, here at C99P. Essentially, it's a story about how, "One of the largest and oldest neo-Nazi groups in the United States appears to have an unlikely new leader: James Stern, a black activist who has vowed to dismantle it."

After two years of peddling collusion & venerating Mueller's probe, Nadler now says that if Mueller's probe doesn't find collusion, "we can agree to disagree," and that "this investigation goes far beyond collusion." This isn't moving the goalposts, it's moving the arena: https://t.co/XjHvKPB8jg
Long (very), but well worth it. Suggestion: watch it in parts, take the time to think and process the information, rinse and repeat.
Faced with Trump's populist seizure of the Republican Party, establishment conservatives and libertarians are trying to redefine republicanism to exclude anything other than market capitalism.
