    As long as Roe vs. Wade still stands the GOP will never let the Supreme Court fall.

    Are you kidding? There are basically four things keeping Republicans relevant politically at this point; the electoral college, the fact that the Senate guarantees two seats to every state, the gerrymandering processes tied to the census that let them keep huge systemic advantages in the first two, and the courts. RvW is just part of the agenda, and one that they don't honestly want to repeal due to its power to motivate their base. However, so long as they can keep the courts, they can continue to rig the rest of the system and fill their pockets with taxpayer dollars and huge donations with impunity.

    That's the real reason why they want to hold the courts. The actual leadership doesn't give a fuck about the interests of the Base beyond how those interests can be manipulated to remain in power. The Trump era has shown this extensively. The rare few Conservatives with something resembling values and integrity have all bowed out or been driven out, while the Base at this point just cares about staying in power and forcing its positions on the disagreeing majority of the country.

    Vestra puerorum, qui movere tempus ipsum, et rotam ferrea primum.
    Ac vestra lucis, omnes surgit futurum aureus, novo mundo nascens.

    Looks like this RBG replacement mess is going to be really ugly. Talks of impeaching Trump and Barr in order to delay the voting process are floating.

    Forced sterilisation is actually happening at ICE facilities, you know, the detention camps where immigrants are being held in concentration and highly unsanitary conditions?

    The information is out there. Easily accessible too.

    I wonder. It's such a good campaign issue that it's almost a loss for them to actually do something about it. But perhaps I am being too cynical and they'll actually follow through on 40 years of promises when the chance finally presents itself.

    They might do it, but then they'll be left championing the cause to keep it gone. Or some other issue or other. Probably working towards a Southern Baptist theocracy or something.

    Fair enough. It just doesn't usually make the news over here when he's doing political/corruption purges. It makes this seem like more of a crackdown than usual.

    The thing is, those that are active critics are not clean themselves, so the public in China really doesn't care as long as the CCP continue to ensure their livelihood. Heck, some even clap hands when Xi take down the rich since many classify them as boot-licker of the West.

    The thing is, Trump's actions really destroyed the traditional perception of USA to regular Chinese people, so for now, we don't seem that bad at all. Some even believe that the difference between China and USA is that China's control over the media is weak compared to USA since many of us didn't know about how serious the protests were in over there while we almost know stuff immediately about our place over here.

    "On the other hand, some of those signatories were taking aim at Black Lives Matter as if the loud and public opposition to racism were itself uncivilised behaviour. Some of them have opposed legal rights for Palestine. Others have [allegedly] committed sexual harassment. And yet others do not wish to be challenged on their racism. Democracy requires a good challenge, and it does not always arrive in soft tones. So I am not in favour of neutralising the strong political demands for justice on the part of subjugated people. When one has not been heard for decades, the cry for justice is bound to be loud."

    Love it! Butler continues to be awesome.

    Meanwhile, no charges actually filed against the three officers who shot Breonna Taylor on a no-knock warrant while she was in bed asleep in her own home. At least in regards to her killing. Two were just fired. One faces charges related to firing into someone else's home during the incident.

    This... probably won't go over well.

    Is this widely reported though?

    There are protests happening already, with the cops reacting as usual.
