Warren Pressed in Iowa on Call to Abolish Electoral College: Doesnt Rural America Get the Shaft?

Hey, you Guys are smarter than you look

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) was pressed by Iowa reporters Friday over her call to abolish the Electoral College, with one remarking it would give rural America "the shaft."

Des Moines Register reporter Brianne Pfannenstiel asked Warren whether her proposal would hurt small states like Iowa, which is frequently a battleground state. The winner of Iowa has won six out of the past seven presidential elections, the exception being Al Gore in 2000.

"No, this is not about states," Warren said. "This is about voters. It makes every voter important, including voters in Iowa, including voters in Mississippi, including voters in Massachusetts and California."

Iowa Press host David Yepsen also pressed Warren, saying rural America could "get the shaft" if she had her way.

"Wouldn't rural America just be overlooked? The Founders set this up so that big colonies, like Massachusetts, weren't running over the little ones," Yepsen said. "Doesn't rural America get the shaft? No one will ever see a presidential candidate if we get rid of the Electoral College."

Warren said she didn't see it that way.

"Look how much of America is rural, only right now it's all got state boundaries," she said. "And you look at every state, and in every single state, you've got a minority population. … You have to get out and actually meet family farmers. You've got to meet people who live in small-town America and rural America.

"They no longer get subsumed as the minority within their state because all that matters is where your 10 electoral votes are going or your 20 electoral votes are going. I think this actually enhances the power of rural America and small-town America," she added.

Warren joined Hillary Clinton, who won the popular vote in 2016 but lost the Electoral College, in calling for its abolition during a CNN town hall in Mississippi on March 18.

"My view is that every vote matters, and the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting, and that means get rid of the Electoral College," Warren said.

Other Democratic presidential candidates, including former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D., Texas), have also called for it to be replaced. Its only prominent defender on the Democratic side: entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

President Donald Trump called the system a "disaster for a democracy" shortly after President Barack Obama was re-elected in 2012, but he's changed his tune, recently tweeting the "brilliance of the Electoral College is that you must go to many States to win."

Democrats and the media touted Hillary Clinton's impenetrable "blue wall" before Trump shocked the political world by winning Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin in 2016, three states no Republican had won in decades.

I don't see how these schemes can be found Constitutional considering the Electoral College is pretty much MOST of Article II

Cobra! Cobra! Cobra! (Secret Service Code for Creepy Biden is Naked Again!)

VICE PRESIDENT JOE Biden enjoys swimming without a bathing suit, a new book claims.

Biden, who’s flirting with a run for president in 2016, gives Secret Service agents an eyeful both at his Delaware home and at the vice president’s official residence in Washington, D.C., according to “The First Family Detail” by Ronald Kessler.

The book relies on named and unnamed sources to describe life guarding prominent politicians including Biden, former President Ronald Reagan, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama.

“Agents say that, whether at the vice president’s residence or at his home in Delaware, Biden has a habit of swimming in his pool nude,” Kessler writes in the book – due for release Aug. 5.

“Female Secret Service agents find that offensive,” he writes.

“Biden likes to be revered as everyday Joe," an unnamed agent told Kessler. "But the reality is no agents want to go on his detail because Biden makes agents’ lives so tough.”

In addition to the alleged skinny-dipping, agents are reportedly irritated by frequent last-minute trips to Delaware.

A Biden spokeswoman would not address the claims on the record. A spokesperson for the Secret Service did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Kessler worked for several mainstream publications – including more than a decade at The Washington Post – before a stint as chief Washington correspondent at the conservative online publication Newsmax in the early 2000s.

His reporting has won two George Polk awards.

New York City to give additional $1.6 million to city attorneys to defend illegal immigrants

Hey Douchebag, your City is becoming a Shithole again, How many Hungry Americans could you feed with that money? How Many Homeless? You need to be taken out and beaten about the Head and Shoulders with a Blunt Instrument

Calling it a defensive fund against President Trump’s immigration policies, New York City officials plan to put an extra $1.6 million toward public defenders representing immigrants slated for deportation, according to the New York Daily News.
The move to bolster the funding arose from a deal between New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Council Speaker Corey Johnson.
Attorneys and immigrant rights groups had pushed for money, saying that courts were rushing decisions on deportation and that immigrants were at a disadvantage if they did not have the help of an attorney.

“This emergency funding will help us provide more attorneys to New Yorkers in need,” Johnson said, according to the Daily News. “This is crucial right now as the ICE deportation machine has ramped up efforts to interfere with the necessary work NYIFUP is doing by pushing people through the system with zero regard for due process. I will continue to fight these un-American and horrific immigration policies.”

I know its DOJ Policy to not release an Investigation like Trump went through prior to Election day

But I believe being under that Cloud hurt him in the Midterms.

Now the Democrats are about to be squashed like Cockroaches for all the crimes they committed against US Citizens under Obama.

They have to make this happen with perfect timing. I bet they can

Before the Libs laugh me off over this remember, I predicted Trump was going to win, I also said Mueller would not find collusion

I can give you a list I believe of People who are going to Federal Prison for Life and at least one who will be executed. Shall We play a Game?

Brennan is a Dead Man Walking, Comey and Clapper are up Shit Creek FOREVER

Long Stretch at sing sing

Say Goodnight Gracie for both of those two

There are those I think Flipped on Obama, We shall see

Brunei introduces vicious new sharia laws

Gay sex and adultery will be punishable by stoning to death and thieves will be amputated under 'vicious' new Sharia laws brought in by Brunei

Brunei already has Sharia law with homosexuality punishable with ten years' jail

Under new laws from next week gay people could be whipped or stoned to death

Muslims found guilty of adultery, sodomy and rape could also be put to death

Amnesty branded laws 'vicious' and called for international pressure on Brunei

Brunei could start whipping or stoning gay people to death next week when strict new laws are introduced, human rights groups have warned.

The tiny oil-rich nation already implements Sharia laws, with homosexuality punishable with up to ten years in prison.

But from the start of next month the government plans to amend the penal code to mean LGBT people and adulterers could be stoned to death, with thieves facing having hands or feet amputated.

Amnesty International today slammed the plans, describing the Islamic criminal laws for gay sex and theft as 'vicious'.

Brunei was the first East Asian country to introduce Islamic criminal law in 2014 when it announced the first of three stages of legal changes that included fines or jail for offences like pregnancy outside marriage or failing to pray on Friday.

Remember Kids, there is no “nice” Islam. It’s a Pimple on the Ass of Civilization.

Think about that the next time someone shoots up a Mosque, I am
