    The Dems want a moderate and strong candidate to beat Trump. I think Mike has got this. Biden is imploding and Sanders will not be able to come up with numbers like he did in NH. Buttigege had his best numbers and in future races will not have the delegates since the Dems know a gay man will not be able to beat Trump in the general. What chaos happens at the convention is another story but I still think Bloomberg will come out on top. Out of all the Dem candidates Bloomberg is Trump's greatest hreat. But overall Trump is Trump's greatest threat to Trump getting re-elected. If Trump in a head to head race with Bloomberg, starts caving on gun control because Bloomberg is big on gun control and/or going after social security (cuts/raising the age), cutting Medicare (vowed not to during his campaign) he could lose. Trump cannot afford to demoralize his base before November to a point a percentage stays home he will need every vote. Trump has the economy going for him for now. But a second threat to Trump which is not his fault will be how our economy is effected by an economic down-turn in China due to the Coronavirus.

    Last week the Fake News said that a section of our powerful, under construction, Southern Border Wall “fell over”, trying to make it sound terrible, except the reason was that the concrete foundation was just poured & soaking wet when big winds kicked in. Quickly fixed “forever”. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 16, 2020

    Probably, but I wonder is he that kind of guy that is fine with just endorsing and retiring. Last time around maybe he was looking ahead to running again in 4 years and did not want to completely burn bridges with his party. But now, age wise, he is out of time. I guess we will find out soon enough whether he goes quietly, wants something big in return or turns on his party by taking he supporters with him for a 3rd party run.

    Last week we reminded readers that unless Beijing manages to contain the coronavirus epidemic, China faces a fate far worse than just reported its first ever 0% (or negative) GDP print in history. For those who missed it, here it is again: back in November, we reported that as part of a stress test conducted by China's central bank in the first half of 2019, 30 medium- and large-sized banks were tested; In the base-case scenario, assuming GDP growth dropped to 5.3% - nine out of 30 major banks failed and saw their capital adequacy ratio drop to 13.47% from 14.43%. In the worst-case scenario, assuming GDP growth dropped to 4.15%, some 2% below the latest official GDP print, more than half of China's banks, or 17 out of the 30 major banks failed the test. Needless to say, the implications for a Chinese financial system - whose size is roughly $41 trillion - having over $20 trillion in "problematic" bank assets, would be dire. Well, with GDP set to print negative if Goldman is right (with risk clearly to the downside as China's economy remains completely paralyzed)... ... every single Chinese bank is set to fail a "hypothetical" stress test, and the immediate result is an exponential surge in bad debt. The result, as we discussed in detail last week, is that the bad loan ratio at the nation's 30 biggest banks would soar at least five-fold, and potentially far, far more, flooding the country with trillions in non-performing loans, and unleashing a tsunami of bank defaults. Of course, regular readers are well aware that China's banks are already suffering record loan defaults as the economy last year expanded at the slowest pace in three decades while bankruptcies soared. As extensively covered here previously, the slump tore through the nation’s $41 trillion banking system, forcing not only the first bank seizure in two decades as Baoshang Bank was nationalized , but also bailouts at Bank of Jinzhou, China's Heng Feng Bank, as well as two very troubling bank runs at China's Henan Yichuan Rural Commercial Bank at the start of the month, and then more recently at Yingkou Coastal Bank. All that may be a walk in the park compared to what is coming next. "The banking industry is taking a big hit," You Chun, a Shanghai-based analyst at National Institution for Finance & Development told Bloomberg. "The outbreak has already damaged China’s most vibrant small businesses and if it prolongs, many firms will go under and be unable to repay their loans."

    Michael Bloomberg has taken the lead in a new national poll of the Democratic presidential primary, suggesting that the party may actually sell its nomination to the radical authoritarian oligarch. The poll from Rasmussen Reports, released on Friday, has the former New York City mayor taking 26% support from national Democratic likely primary voters. Joe Biden comes in second with 22%, and Bernie Sanders comes in third with 18%. The poll is possibly a sign of the strength of Bloomberg’s candidacy, which has adopted an approach of almost openly buying the support of prominent Democrats and carpet-bombing the airwaves of Super Tuesday states with unprecedented levels of campaign ad spending. Bloomberg wasn’t even on the ballot in the Iowa Caucuses or New Hampshire primary, so his strength is real electoral contests is yet to be demonstrated. But it’s clear the ultra-billionaire, with a whopping net worth of more than $50 billion dollars, is a serious contender for the nomination, even though he shamelessly intends to buy it.

    There are no pros, it's unconstitutional. The cons aren't just partisan, the inhabitants of DC are all dependent on government in a much bigger way than most communist Demoncrats and giving more power to any communists is a con that isn't partisan.

    On February 13, 2020, Michigan Congressman Justin Amash endorsed the idea of establishing an Equal Rights Amendment. Under the ERA, the government would allegedly guarantee equal legal rights for all Americans regardless of their sex. Amash tweeted, “Equality before the law is fundamental to the Rule of Law and foundational to liberty. The Constitution exists to protect our liberty, so I have long advocated including a federal equal protection clause in the Constitution.” He added, “Drafting a new nondiscrimination amendment would allow us to enshrine our modern understanding of equal protection as preventing all arbitrary discrimination by government, and it would allow states to consider the proposal without being under a constitutionally dubious deadline.”

    No, the founders specifically made DC a special domain of Congress so that no state government could have excessive influence on the federal government as New York had been accused of. This is unconstitutional, DC can NEVER be a state.
