Currently not a fan of Biden's picks for WH advisors, toooo many Clinton cronies and 1 or 2 big business lobbyists on the list.

Cabinet nominees are decent, so far. Waiting to see where Pete Buttigieg ends up (Press Sec, being the only fitting spot left for him....since Biden has already picked the UN Ambassador).

Justice Dept, thinking and hoping Biden selects.....Neil MacBride. Expect only other likely choice would be Yates, I'm ok with both. Mainly on the merit that both should have little problem being confirmed.

Yes, more of the same. Biden has been in politics forever so there must be at least a couple of dozen acolytes that helped him on his way calling in favors. Wasn't there loads of gurning when Donald started filling advisory top slots with family and other dodgy buggers from his slumlord and casino days? A fair few of the latter went to jail or faced some sort of social opprobrium and career ignominy for all their troubles.

Big difference with experienced political advisors (Biden), and inexperienced family members and outright nuts (Trump).

Then this recent appointments by Trump, crazy..........guess the list of lapdogs is getting shorter.

Yes it's time to congratulate the Obama-Clinton cartel on their power grab, poor old Joe barely remembers his own name. The great thing is they can now pull the strings with Joe as their patsy.

Wasn't Kristy Cream the porn star DT had some fun with?

A well-crafted op-ed based on the "known knowns" of US political facts, thanks. No party has spent as much time and money on gerrymandering as the GOP.

Of the quartet of Republicans mentioned that may aspire to a post-Trump political career, maybe Hayley has the best chance of a stab at it? With all this #me to and woke, apart from having to sit to pee, it's surely much better to be a woman these days, no? Pompeo, Rubio and Cruz can all take a number as their "priors" either hint at being intimately familiar with fellatio or they've already been spotted bent over and holding their ankles, taking one for the team. Mind you, this posture isn't exactly an "unknown known" in Washington is it?

Wasn't one of them remote control drone strikes either. Must be a major pisser to have Israel stroll in and take out a major figure who's identity was so shielded, the first pictures of him were only from a couple if years ago. Guns and explosives as well... shoot 'em upold school style. Nobody has been caught or arrested either.

Good chance it was Israeli backed insurgents or deep cover Iranian descendents who were born in Israel and funded by Israel.

Israeli backed insurgents in Iran?

More likely Saudi assets put US/Israeli equipment in place.

There would be a huge price for that. What the Saudis can get now Trump is gone is a mystery.

SCOTUS torpedoes White House challenges in Pennsylvania.

"The court’s brief order provided no reasoning, nor did it note any dissenting votes."

A judgment passed without reasoning or comment on dissent? That in itself is pretty deafening.

Okey dokey the President's time is best served engaging in spurious claims of fraud.The same fraudulent system that elected him.

There's a lot of golf to play at public expense.

Trump wants even more cash from his dumb supporters. Ken UNDER INDICTMENT Paxton of Texas filed another Supreme Court challenge. It is, of course, even more ridiculous than the case that was just denied.

How in the f*** can one state, Texas in this case, sue another state on how they conduct their elections? The federal government can't even do it, what in the hell does this guy think he can do about it?
