Just catching up on Real Time. Probably the best New Rule segment ever.

Rudy Giuliani Plans Ukraine Trip to Push for Inquiries That Could Help Trump
Mr. Giuliani said he plans to travel to Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, in the coming days and wants to meet with the nation’s president-elect to urge him to pursue inquiries that allies of the White House contend could yield new information about two matters of intense interest to Mr. Trump.​

One is the origin of the special counsel’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. The other is the involvement of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s son in a gas company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch.​

Mr. Giuliani’s plans create the remarkable scene of a lawyer for the president of the United States pressing a foreign government to pursue investigations that Mr. Trump’s allies hope could help him in his re-election campaign.

Yeah, I've been reading about this. From the get go, with pompasshole's claims, and then the perfect timing of "sabotage" with no loss of anything, raised major red flags. They are trying their hardest to distract by starting a war. This has been a fear I've had of trump since the beginning. And, literally, there's a tweet for everything. This has russia, syrian, and bolton's hands all over it.

Should we even attempt to guess what party the overwhelming majority of the 57% votes for?

You know, though, hipsters trying to enter in cell phone numbers in Roman Numerals might almost be worth the hassle.

Is there a chance of a Recession happening again while going into the 2020 election? I've been hearing some concerns from different commentators about different areas and now the thing with China ramping up.

I'm not sure if some people are overly alarmist or if a repeat of 2008 could happen already. :really:

If we start something up with Iran the media better not start getting all pro war again like they did with Iraq, keep the pressure on Trump and make his administration make the case for why this was needed. I hope it doesn't come to that though.

There’s a lot of fabricated wealth in the stock market right now. It’s going to come to a head.

I think unless you're watching Faux News you won't see too much pro war

During the lead up to the Iraq war CNN and others were practically cheering it on, they love it because war is ratings for them. They get to trot out their retired generals etc and talk a bunch of nonsense. This time it'll likely be different because there is no 911 event to build off of, at least that's my hope anyway.
