Well, that's interesting.

Default Fantasies are not Helpful

Trump is not likely to be impeached. Here's is analysis from some of his most rabid critics as to why.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.c624468a969d

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/12/o...ment.html?_r=0

And here are more links from more from those seeking to be objective.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ges/101764804/

https://amp.theguardian.com/us-news/...oll-obama-data

https://www.minnpost.com/eric-black-...ort-his-voters

The hysteria is misplaced. Perhaps, folks ought to be thinking of what they stand for rather than shrieking about how awful Trump is. The problems of jobs, infrastructure, healthcare, education, and how to finance our needs are not getting addressed in all this uproar. We need creative people who can build consensus to start strengthening their resumes. The country is begging for you to emerge.

Abandoned by Both Sides, a Secret Society of Trump Regretters Begins to Build

Quote:
Much of the media’s spotlight during the presidential campaign focused on the beliefs of the far right or the far left, not on moderates. Underwood, like many Americans in 2016, wasn’t happy with either major party candidate—so much so that she nearly abstained from voting altogether. (Clinton and Trump were the two least popular candidates to ever run for president in history). At the ballot box, she ultimately turned toward Trump because she wanted a pro-life judge appointed to the Supreme Court and felt Trump’s plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act would be better than Clinton’s plan to patch the existing system. Today, Underwood is rethinking both of these positions—and whether she will ever vote Republican again, especially as she watches the previously critical GOP placate Trump at every turn.
Quote:
Now Trump voters are left with a new question: Is this the kind of change they wanted? As more and more Trump voters come forward to voice regret, they’re also facing backlash from frustrated liberals. The majority of “regretters” I messaged for this story declined my requests for interviews because of that very reason. One woman even specified she didn’t want talk to me because she’s already had her fair share of snide comments from angry liberals. While owners of the “I Regret Voting For Donald Trump in 2016” Facebook page and the @Trump_Regrets Twitter make it clear they don’t allow harassment (those who do will be kicked off or blocked), they can’t completely stop it.
Quote:
It’s an unfortunate side effect given that the goal of the “I Regret Voting for Trump” Facebook group is to organize people who oppose Trump into numbers that exceed those that support him—and it may very well paralyze the effort altogether. “We need to take the red and the blue and make purple and just work together. Without that we cannot stop him,” Underwood says. “It shouldn’t be an ‘us and them thing.’ It should simply be a ‘we’ thing.”

Default Trump / Erdogan

By the visit of the Turkish President Erdogan Mr Trump gave Erdogan nearly a fluff.

Well done for this time, Mr. Trump.

Yeah, Joe acts like he would not have the same turnout problems Hillary had. Both parties are not willing to be honest with themselves, or the people.

Default 2 from LA Times on judicial matters...

Supreme Court finds the GOP packed black voters into two North Carolina districts to help win more House seats

Quote:
The Supreme Court rebuked North Carolina’s Republican leaders Monday for shifting tens of thousands of black voters into two congressional districts that had steadily elected black Democrats, striking down the move as racial gerrymandering.
Quote:
The main effect of Monday’s ruling will be in the South. Under the Voting Rights Act, Southern states were pressed in the 1990s to create voting districts that would elect African American candidates to Congress or the state legislature.
Quote:
Monday’s decision won’t settle the broader national debate over gerrymandering. Many Democrats and political scientists say Republicans have used partisan line-drawing — which is allowed under the law — to maintain a grip on the House of Representatives. They point to states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan and Ohio, where Republicans have used party affiliation to give themselves control of most of the congressional seats.

Gorsuch dissents as Supreme Court upholds ban on big-money gifts to parties

Quote:
New Justice Neil M. Gorsuch joined Clarence Thomas in dissent Monday when the Supreme Court rejected an appeal from a Republican Party lawyer seeking to strike down limits on big-money contributions to political parties.
Quote:
The dissent by Gorsuch is his first and most significant decision since joining the court last month, and it puts him squarely on the side of conservatives and Republican lawyers who believe that limits on political money are unconstitutional.

Pack most of a single demographic, in this case black voters, in a couple districts and their votes can't change the outcomes in any of the other districts where your white conservative base holds a slim majority.

added:
All that is needed to carry a district is 50% of the vote plus 1. In fact, any votes received above that number are unnecessary for a deciding outcome. If black voters who lived on the borders with other districts had been incorporated into those other districts instead of packed into the original black districts, the impact in the loss of their votes in those original black districts would be of no consequence to the way the districts have historically voted. But if those same traditional black votes were added to the rolls among bordering districts, their votes might change the historical trends in those district's election outcomes, in this case, district's with a conservative white majority.

Gerrymandering is a way to severely limit the impact of opposition voters by concentrating them into a few districts where they can never achieve an outright majority of seats in a governing body or hold a block large enough to swing a vote one way or another in any other district, and at least achieve some political bargaining power in those other districts.
