What if the Republicans cum up with a new candidate other than Trump? Is there any chance?

 

 

there's a couple people so far rumored to challenge the president for the nomination.  it's rare that a sitting president gets challenged by his own party but i wouldn't be surprised if he has a primary challenger. 

this hypothetical republican challenger would have to run as an independent candidate, no?  i cant see any scenario where the republican party would back anyone who could reduce their chance of retaining power.

on the fipside, i hope that any democrat leaning towards running independent will have the sense enough to stay out of the way of splitting the vote.  despite the feeling of a crowded dem field, policy wise theyre pretty similar, and there are lots of good options.  and the centrist bloomberg types overlap enough that theyre not about to split into a new party imo.

in the primary a challenger could run as republican and challenge the president for the nomination if/when the challenger loses he/she could run as independent but it's really unlikely. 

 

if anyone runs as an independent and splits a vote it'll really depend on who the candidate is as to which candidate that effects  most

Nice power play by comrade Putin:

 

https://www.reuters....e-idUSKCN1QA1A3

 

 

Putin fleshed out his warning in detail for the first time, saying Russia could deploy hypersonic missiles on ships and submarines which could lurk outside U.S. territorial waters if Washington now moved to deploy intermediate-range nuclear weapons in Europe.

 
“(We’re talking about) naval delivery vehicles: submarines or surface ships. And we can put them, given the speed and range (of our missiles)... in neutral waters. Plus they are not stationary, they move and they will have to find them,” Putin said, according to a Kremlin transcript.
 
“You work it out. Mach nine (the speed of the missiles) and over 1,000 km (their range).”

 

 

I wonder how agent donnie will respond? This story made Fox news, so we know he saw it. Will agent orange now back down from deploying nukes in Europe, caving to his boss's demands, or will he try and go the tough guy route?

 

donnie tweets: "we won't be pushed around by anyone, including russia"

vlad: pee tape

donnie tweets: "we have decided not to move forward with deploying nukes in europe"

the weakening and reversal of the general nuclear non-proliferation policy that has been the norm until now is really disastrous, possibly the worst thing that's happened under the orange imo.

It’s fucked. One of the things that insiders were/are reportedly worried about is drumpf stumbling into a war with Russia which is weird if little Donnie is a Russian stooge but not impossible to happen.

I worry Donnie will try to save face in some way and do something really dumb with all sorts of unintended consequences.

Domestically and internationally this administration has already created numerous messses that will take a long time to sort out.

I guess what concerns me is that in 2016, he was basically controlled opposition whether he realized it or not. If he loses in the primary, we're going to have a lot of emotional college students writing his name on the ballot again. There will be tons of people who will think a slightly less progressive candidate is automatically a corporate shill. As long as a sane Dem gets in and we remain informed and politically active, we'll be fine. 

 

 

Here's a solution to that problem:

^^ I will say about that is that Republicans are a more cohesive party. In that after the primary they all band together and vote for the person who won the primary regardless of whether they personally like him or not. There's this 'attitude' of "A republican needs to be in office" because Republicans think themselves apart of the party or apart of a whole. Being a Republican is simply part of the culture here  down in the south. It seems pretty much everyone is a Republican. 

Whereas the democratic party is more splintered. I think last time around many Bernie supporters didn't really 'feel apart' of any party and that they were just hitching a ride on the democratic label. So they didn't feel the need to go out and vote for Hillary when the time came. Well that and the whole fiasco with closing polls earlier in areas where people were more likely to vote for Bernie...and Hillary trying to appeal to her right constantly. So it rubbed them the wrong way, but at the same time yes it was foolish to let the republican win. But "not being a republican" isn't enough for more ideal younger people who were used to Obama being president and feeling "safe". If that makes sense.


However I imagine though that this time around that... anyone left of center will vote for the democrat because of a general dislike of Trump instead of necessarily liking the democratic nominee. So I'd say Trump is probably screwed... probably.

here's a more recent story along those lines..   it's a fun read .. true or not. 

 

https://www.inquisit...l-health-drugs/

 

According to Johnston, Trump is a “clear and present danger” to the United States, and to the world. The journalist — who has been covering Donald Trump since the 1980s — said that Trump believes that he is genetically superior and smarter than everyone else, which is why he has long held the belief that he should be running the entire world, and not just the United States.

Well the over the top activist SJW Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, “let’s start a war with our own party and harass Dianne Feinstein over policies and legislature we don’t actually understand” faction is only 8% of the entire electorate.

I don't think Trump is going to start a war to deflect attention to something. He's afraid of war. He's had plenty of time to do the standard republican playbook. He likes to talk big but I think he's a pussy when it comes to action. Hopefully

He's a great manipulator of people, it takes a certain kind of intelligence to do that.  It's not general intelligence though, it's manipulative social intelligence.  I bet if you asked him what an atom is he couldn't give you a satisfactory answer.  The same can be said for any real topic of substantive worth.  But he can talk about the things he wants to talk about in a way that is convincing to unintelligent people or people who want to believe him and engage in group chants at his rallies.  

 

My conclusion is that he's "smart" the same way a scammer or con artist is smart.  Yeah, it's a certain type of intelligence, but it's nothing to brag about and if that's all you are then you're a loser.
