      Since when did the party of Wall Street start griping about big business?

      I’d rather have a beer bottle in front of me than a pre-frontal lobotomy.

      Since big business called them out for ransacking the Capitol and disenfranchising African Americans

      True. They say they’re going after MLB, yet I would bet most of the owners are probably Republican. One wrong step and they could start losing their base.

      Haha

      True

      JBear thinks that people don’t see his obvious trolling (bombast, flamethrowing, inconsistent positions) but he highlights it non stop by always refusing to address any legit topic like this

      That’s the way of the Cove

      This particular topic has to be tough for Trumpers though because ONE (not the only) natural conclusion is that a headline like this

      “McConnell warns corporate America to ‘stay out of politics’ — but says donations are OK”

      Just proves that the GOP is actually interested in keeping white people in power more than “free speech”

      McConnell would never have been in power so long without corporations and, in fact, fought with his party to get a Supreme Court to rule that corporations had a “free speech” right that allowed then to donate millions to the GOP lol. That is why he had to walk back his original comment yesterday to this absurd “give me money but don’t speak” nonsense.

      So, the GOP has cornered itself and frankly its Trump who cemented them there. ETTD.

      Gone are the days of the GOP credibly claiming some high minded Constitutional issue was in play. It’s is now transparently the party of “white power” or “white culture” and that forces MCConell to defend a transparently racist GA law even to the point of contradicting himself and saying absurd things like the headline above.

      There were 74 million Trump votes (less now by the day) BUT THERE WERE 81 million anti-Trump votes so the only strategy is to suppress votes. If that means clowning themselves in the process – complain about canceling Seuss while canceling MLB and Coke – the by god they will do it … BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE

      NY Magazine:

      “”The phantasmal threat of government intimidating business leaders for exercising their First Amendment rights, which McConnell had once invoked to ward off any limits on their ability to use financial leverage over elections, had suddenly become real. And the source of the threat is McConnell himself. A few days’ worth of large corporations condemning voter suppression has left the Republican leader so thoroughly rattled that he’s thrown away decades of laborious work reputation-building on the single issue that is the foundation of his worldview,” Chait wrote.”

      “There is more at work here than the latest cynical turn of the wheel. McConnell is acting not only out of calculation but a mix of fear and rage that is enveloping segments of the right that believed they had come through the Trump era unscathed. For a certain class of Establishment Republican, the events surrounding Georgia’s voting restrictions have set off a mental crisis more severe than anything they experienced during the previous four years,” he explained.

      “To see dozens of corporations denounce voter-suppression laws has therefore come as a shock to the party’s elite. Nobody — nobody they cared about, anyway — was denouncing them for passing vote-suppression laws in 2010. They had begrudgingly accepted some level of backlash against Trump. But now Trump was gone, many of them had openly denounced him on his way out, and here they find themselves still on moral probation,” Chait wrote. “A sickening realization has settled upon them that many of the uncomfortable changes to the political atmosphere over the last four years may be permanent. The cultural change that alienated the GOP from academia and Hollywood years ago are creeping into corporate America.”

      “ But it’s not just the party ID gap that stands out in Gallup’s first-quarter polling. It’s this: Just 25% of the public calls themselves Republicans — close to the lowest (22%) that Gallup has ever measured since it started doing telephone-based polling. (Another 15% say they lean to Republicans.)

      When you combine those two data points, you get this: Not many people want to be a Republican at the moment. The party’s brand is quite clearly damaged after four years of Donald Trump seeking to break every political norm possible.

      The Point: Smart GOP strategists look at these numbers and know the best strategy is to immediately start charting a course away from Trump. The problem? The party base still loves the former President — and has no plans on abandoning him.”

      No doubt JBear is outraged

      He’s just waiting for Grenwald to tell him what to say?

      MARTHA MACCALLUM (ANCHOR): We are waiting for a crucial decision from the judge in the Chauvin trial in Minneapolis. This man, Maurice Hall — who you’ll see in a second on the right-hand side of your screen. He was with George Floyd, he was in the car on May 25. They drove to Cup Foods. Remember we heard Floyd’s girlfriend testify that she didn’t like Maurice Hall. She believes he sold drugs to George Floyd. We are expecting a decision from the judge on whether Hall will be compelled to testify in this trial. He clearly knows what happened before the police arrived and what ensued in the struggle to arrest George Floyd. He also may know about — look at these pictures here — the pills that were found on the floor of Floyd’s car and then a partial pill that was found in the police car that Floyd was briefly in, all of which tested positive for methamphetamine and fentanyl.

      So did George Floyd die from the drugs in his system or the knee on his neck? That is the key question for the 12 members of this jury.

      So what do you think is racist about that? Or a lie for that matter? The defense are going to argue that drugs were a major contributor to his death. If they manage to convince the jurors it could have a huge impact on their decision.

      Now, I am not following the trial minute by minute, so perhaps you can add some context to substantiate the accusation, but off the bat that looks like pretty straight forward reporting.

      hahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

      Not to get off on a tangent but you’re proving the point of the
      “cocoon” comments. Faux News will get you every time and you call it “pretty straight forward reporting?” McCallum has defended the use of “ChinaVirus” and she called the storming of the Capitol a “huge victory” for the “protestors” for disrupting things . . only to back track later. In other words, shes is SELLING a point of view and that point of view is PRECISELY the racist view of George Floyd and the cops. She is part of the echo chambers (the “cocoon”)

      Martha Macullum SPUN the passenger taking the 5th in the way the defense (or cops, no offense) would and it was nothing.

      It was nothing (except on Faux News) because the prosecution concedes drugs in system. You say “defense are going to argue that drugs were a major contributor to his death” okay, but its the other way around. George Floyd could be high as a kite. The prosecution only need to prove that the knee was a “substantial factor” in his death and they have the video of him in the store acting normal RIGHT BEFORE HES KILLED, so the jury would have to believe he was acting normal but about to die from drugs???

      So — just as in the Matt Gaetz thread – the defense resonates with you even when this issue is really a diversion. Its undisputed that he took drugs. Hall taking the 5th will resonate with those who are pre-disposed to the belief that George Floyd deserved to die (for passing a $20 bill) because he’s a bad guy who didn’t comply. It will not resonate with those who believe Chauvin killed him
