Elizabeth Warren warning another financial crisis is coming.

This is actually a really smart strategy.  She'll campaign based on Trump not doing enough to protect you from the next recession, which is an artful attempt to dismiss the strong economy and shift the debate to what comes next.  It's sneaky smart, essentially the economic version of Trump on immigration....yep, Warren would probably favor building a wall around Wall Street.

And she's right there are signs a recession is looming.  We also know one will come, eventually.  But saying it will be on the level of the Great Recession is typical fearmongering.  It's possible, but there's no indication or reason to believe the financial system will repeat what happened.  It will be a rather typical recession, perhaps a little longer and deeper than normal for a few reasons, but nothing like 2008-9.

Yes, recession or leveling off of massive growth thanks to Trump will occur right when someone like her hits the WH.

I just listened to Joe Rogan interview with Bernie.  Holy shit his lack of cause and affect is scary.

We have centuries of empirical data that show tyrannical governments and socialism and communism destroy countries and impoverish hundreds of millions of people, but the radical left disregards that ………………in favor of ignorant hunches that climate change is caused by humans and can be altered by humans.  How in hell do these people have more than 3 dozen supporters?

You and the English language just aren't compatible, are they?

So apparently Bernie is targeting the Area 51 flash mob.  Promises to release any info on aliens and ufo's if elected.

Or maybe he should try selling it so he can pay for all his free shit.

Hickenlooper is dropping out of the race and considering a run for Cory Gardner's Senate seat.

Not gonna lie...that's a pretty good selling point IMO.

I know one person who watches Ancient Aliens. A lot. When I saw this, I told him that I knew where his vote was going. He laughed.

Rogan asked him if he became president and gained knowledge of aliens would he announce it on his show. It was the close of the episode, he said yes....jokingly.

I watched the Rogan/Sanders podcast and I'll give Bernie some credit. I think he really believes what he is espousing and not just spouting off talking points for the (not so) fringe left. I think he's a very nice guy and I could stand being around him, which is more than what I can say for a bunch of others running - I just can't get behind his politics, whatsoever. But that podcast made him more *tolerable*. 

And by the way I also have to give credit to the other dem candidates that are willing to go on these various podcasts such as H3H3, Rogan, Rubin, etc. Yang proved to not have a backbone when it came to going on Rubin's show, though, and instead chose to let Vox decide that for him.

I watch Ancient Aliens often enough (maybe once a month, always if I am just passing through the channels and it is on).

 

I view it a as a comedy show however. Those that view it as 'history' are real wackadoos.

Did he square his beliefs with his accumulating significant wealth over the last two campaigns?

So Tulsi has spoke out against pc culture, unfavorably against 3rd trimester abortions unless medical emergency and saying that she is for free speech even for her political critics. I'm starting to like her more and more.

But, of course, the DNC isn't going to give her any chance to to butt heads with Kamala Harris again or E-Warren. They are effectively cutting her out of everything.

I think the ticket will either be Biden/Harris or Warren/Buttigieg.  

My darkhorse VP is Booker.  Unfortunately for Tulsi her diversity score just isn't high enough for the Wokecrats.
