The senate judiciary committee said today that they would consider a pardon of any target in the Russia investigation to be tantamount to obstruction of justice and would impeach. So.

The Senate doesn't impeach. You'd have to have the House committee on board.

Quote
Popular investor Marc Faber, author of the "Gloom Boom & Doom Report" newsletter, wrote in his most recent edition that he was glad the U.S. had been founded and ruled by white people rather than black people.

"And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look like one day anyway, but at least America enjoyed 200 years in the economic and political sun under a white majority," Faber wrote in the newsletter, according to CNBC.

He added, "I am not a racist, but the reality -- no matter how politically incorrect -- needs to be spelled out."

Jesus H Christ.  :stareicide:

Judge Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate in Alabama, is neck-and-neck with his Democratic opponent, former United States Attorney Doug Jones.

Moore and Jones are tied at 42 percent among registered voters, according to a poll by Fox News published on Tuesday. Among the 53 percent of registered voters who said they were either extremely interested or very interested in the Senate race, Jones has a slight lead over Moore -- 46 percent to 45 percent, to be exact.

And this is from a Fox News poll. :cheer:

In gaming news Activision just received a patent on a new way to drive microtransaction purchases. Didn't think it was possible for them to become bigger pieces of shit but here we are.

Also the UK Parliament has to comment on loot crate mechanics due to a petition on the subject reaching over 10,000 signatures.

The two questions are recorded on the official Parliamentary website, and the first asks what steps Bradley plans to take, 'to help protect vulnerable adults and children from illegal gambling, in-game gambling and loot boxes within computer games.'

The second question revolves around the Isle of Man's unusually strict laws surrounding gambling and in-app purchases, which makes them the only place in the world to explicitly protect against abuses relating to in-game currency.

Be interesting to see what happens if a market like the UK forces an "AO" or "M" rating on games containing randmozied loot box mechanics.

Whew, this is an expensive month!

Picked up Shadow of War, which is really fun so far. Loot box mechanics haven't been intrusive at all so far. Plus the nemesis system can be really fun.

Started the new South Park game last night. I plan on playing a black, trans female.

Evil Within 2 came out which I still need to get.

Destiny 2 is out next week.

Assassin's Creed: Origins and Wolfenstein 2 are still coming out as well.

I caught a bit of Trumps speech in Greece today at lunch, there was music on and the tv was low but it sounded like he was just reading from a speech (badly) and a very quick/clipped fashion. Anyone else catch it?

god no

uried inside the new CNN poll is a finding that won't make many headlines, but should probably cause a good bit of concern for Republicans.

The poll asked the standard "generic ballot" question: Would you prefer a generic Democrat or a generic Republican in the upcoming election? Democrats lead on that question for the 2018 midterms by a whopping 16-point margin, 54 percent to 38 percent.

Story doesn't mention if the poll was registered voters or likely voters.

I was reading in a different story today that said pollsters were saying that even a 5 point differential in the generic for the Democrats would be pretty likely to lead to the Dems flipping the House.

California's Sen. Feinstein Gets Democratic Primary Challenger

Quote
California's senior senator, Dianne Feinstein, is up for re-election next year, and she is getting a challenge from a fellow Democrat, someone who is 34 years younger. As KQED's Scott Shafer reports, the race reflects the leftward tilt of the party since last year's election.

Say it ain't so Di Fi!

In 1997, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration discovered an unusual, ultra-low-frequency sound emanating from a point off the southern coast of Chile. It was the loudest unidentified underwater sound ever recorded, detected by hydrophones 5,000 miles apart. It lasted for one minute and was never heard again.

Apparently Cthulhu snored.

Do you think Wayne State law school also makes lawyers allergic to math?

Do you think this problem will take care of itself as new people that are used to operating in a more empirical world are elevated to the Supreme Court?
