Another plane has gone down mysteriously – this one of a plane headed from Paris to Cairo – so cable news has gone into full crazy speculation mode. That hasn’t slowed down the crazy news coming from the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
It’s like opposite world, as somewhat surprisingly, the Democratic Party seems to be the one dealing with serious internal conflict between Sanders’ extremists and the rest of the party. Many are calling for Sanders to get out now, while many others say Sanders has every right to stay in, even though he’s effectively mathematically eliminated.
Amid the Democratic infighting, Republicans seem to have finally agreed to give up on a third party alternative to Trump, and Bill O’Reilly is even entreating his viewers to stop hating Obama & Clinton. At the same time as Democrats keep fighting, Donald Trump seems to be gaining in the polls and moving forward. Trump even released a list of potential Supreme Court nominees on Wednesday, a murderer’s row of conservative extremist judges who would almost assuredly turn the Supreme Court into a wholly illegitimate institution.
Meanwhile, some in DC actually tried to get some governing accomplished on Wednesday, as Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee got her fellow House members to discuss and even vote on repealing the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force. At the same time, Speaker Paul Ryan looks to have struck a deal with President Obama to help Puerto Rico with its massive debt problem.
