Latino groups warn that Biden's sluggish outreach to their voters could hurt in November

After Trump has insulted them in every possible way, tried to fuck them over with DACA.. Not sure why anyone woupd want to suppott the orange anus.

What are the specific concerns of the Hispanic population?


Sean Sullivan

Top Latino Democrats are voicing growing concern about Joe Biden’s campaign, warning that lackluster efforts to win the support of their community could have devastating consequences in the November election.

Recent polls showing President Trump’s inroads with Latinos have set off a fresh round of frustration and finger-pointing among Democrats, confirming problems some say have simmered for months. Many Latino activists and officials said Biden is now playing catch-up, particularly in the pivotal state of Florida, where he will campaign Tuesday — the start of National Hispanic Heritage Month — for the first time as the presidential nominee. Reaching out to Latino voters will be a key focus on the visit, according to a person with knowledge of the trip. Biden’s campaign said he will be in Tampa and Kissimmee, two areas with large Puerto Rican populations.

Is America in the Early Stages of Armed Insurgency?


David Kilcullen is one of the world’s leading authorities on insurgencies. For decades he has studied them. As an infantry soldier in the Australian army and an adviser to the U.S. Army, he’s fought against them. His latest scholarly work has focused on their role in urban conflicts.

So when Kilcullen says that America is in a state of “incipient insurgency,” it’s worth sitting up, taking notice, and trembling just a little.

The official definition of an insurgency is the “organized use of subversion and violence to seize, nullify, or challenge political control” of an area. An “incipient insurgency” might be happening when “inchoate actions by a range of groups”—followed by organizing, training, acquisition of resources (including arms), and the buildup of public support—lead to “increasingly frequent” incidents of violence, reflecting “improved organization and forethought.”

I think its a little overblown ... For 1) Gun rotting militia in this country are pussies masquerading as dicks. Any sign of a real fight that actually requires putting your life up for a cause ... They will chicken out - Guaranteed !! Else they would have volunteered.. And those who have volunteered are loyal to this nation 2) There are no contiguous territories demarkating us over them ..There are no Red vs Blue States. ...its more like Red vs Blue zip codes... And even there ..We are all too mixed up.

How Should Biden handle Trump's lies during the debate

Trump is not anything a furious liar ... He is a veritable lying machine.

Regardless of what else happens during the debate - an avalanche of lies on the Bullshit Mountain is as good as money in the bank.

How should Biden react to it?

I listened to the model talk on 538 ...

NS talks about his model and pulls back the curtains a bit.

Basically 70% win chance is based on the uncertainty around the stability of his national lead.. But if Biden continues this national lead to Nov 4b.. His win probability goes up to 90 -95%..

Right now Biden has biggger lead than Obama did in 2008 in very blue and very red states - which does not help him electorally ..he is performing slightly worse than Obama in the tipping point states...But none of that matters if he wins by 5% nationally.

If we maintain 7 to 8% .. Good chance that we will also win NC, GA and TX

Let's keep up the good fight folks... We nearly have it!!
