  1. I'll give this guy credit... he's right about something! This is why the Republicans were not allowed their own witnesses in the House trial but the Democrats pushed this through anyway and tried to make their own rules for the Senate trial. Maher says Bidens will become the 'bigger scandal' if they testify, Lev Parnas 'not credible' "Real Time" host Bill Maher returned Friday night after a holiday break and weighed in on potential witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, including the possibility of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden being brought in to testify -- as well as Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas. Maher said that Democrats who've been pushing for witness testimony at the trial -- from the likes of former national security adviser John Bolton, for example -- could find themselves facing unintended consequences. "How about this question: Could it backfire, witnesses?" Maher asked during the show's panel segment. "Because then [doesn't] Trump get to call Biden and his ne'er-do-well son?" Maher then blasted Biden for not having a better explanation for his son's ties to the Ukrainian company Burisma. "Biden needs a better answer about his son than, 'I can do more push-ups than you,' and 'I'm going to beat you up,'" Maher said. He then recalled the 2004 presidential election, when Democratic nominee and "war hero" John Kerry was transformed into a "war criminal," and Republican incumbent and "draft dodger" George W. Bush was transformed into a "war hero." "If this gets to a trial and they call Biden and his son, trust me, Biden and his son and Ukraine will be the bigger scandal," Maher insisted. Later, Maher slammed Parnas, who made explosive claims this week during interviews on MSNBC and CNN, claiming Trump had direct knowledge of efforts to withhold U.S. aid from Ukraine in exchange for an announced investigation into the Bidens. "He's not credible," Maher said of Parnas. "I believe him actually ... but he left a note to himself that said, 'Get Zelensky to announce that the Biden case will be investigated.' To himself! It's like a bank robber writing a note, 'Remember to rob bank.' It strikes me as suspicious that you'd do that."
  2. Hopefully it gets replaced with a more Western friendly regime and not a bunch of nutso Ayatollahs. Former Iranian crown prince says Tehran regime on the brink of collapse 'People smell the opportunity for the first time in 40 years,' Reza Pahlavi says Former Iranian crown prince Reza Pahlavi estimated that the Islamic Republic regime could be months away from collapse but emphasized the importance of Western democracies providing aid in achieving that goal. At an event hosted by the Hudson Institute, a Washington-based think tank, the son of Iran’s late Shah said on Wednesday that the present atmosphere in his home country reminds him of the days before his father was overthrown in 1978. “People smell the opportunity for the first time in 40 years,” he said as cited by The Jerusalem Post. “This time is very different from 2009, even very different from 1997. The people have had it. Today's generation of young Iranians cannot take it anymore. They want to have an opportunity for a better future. They want to be on the path of modernity and freedom. The only thing that stands between them and the free world is this regime.” Pahlavi further outlined his plan for regime change, which would see Iran turn into a “multiparty system.” He urged Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) to stand back in order to “facilitate a smoother transition based on my strategy of nonviolent civil disobedience.” The former crown prince, who now lives in Maryland, stressed he is not interested in going back to Iran to reclaim his throne. Speaking to the conservative National Interest, he said that “I’d like to be on this side of the fence, facing the authorities and defending people’s rights so that we can establish a true democracy rather than to be in a position of governance or authority, having to be accountable to the people.”
  3. The article is locked but it sounds like a bad move. I'm not in favor of anything that stifles free-market competition which leads to mini-monopoly's and regulations that make it impossible for smaller companies to get in the game.

  5. And for all of that "interference", which by the way was also by China as well as other nations, it didn't change the result. Even Obama said in the Rose Garden speech that it would be impossible to change the results of the election but no one talks about that anymore. Face it, Hillary Clinton lost the election on her own merits. Second, with NATO if by weakening you mean that other countries pay their fair share instead of the US shouldering the financial burden then I'm all for it. You're right that it's a big complex world but you guys are holding on to the original premise that Trump somehow works for Putin which doesn't hold up when you consider the total sum of actions he has taken. If he's been favorable to any one nation it's not Russia, it's Israel.
  6. Wait, so you're telling me that Trump is controlled by Putin and then used the US military to strike out at one of Russia's biggest allies, Iran, under the orders of Putin and Trump is conspiring with one of Russia's greatest enemies, Ukraine, to win the next election to take further orders from Putin? As Johnny Carson said, "This is some wacky wild stuff." You really got your finger on the pulse of world politics Professor Hambrains.
