'A wine cave full of crystals': Democrats find new frontrunner to attack at debate Democrats continue the search for a 2020 nominee.

Moderately interesting - but this part may be completely wrong:

Three of the seven candidates will have to put their campaigns on hold to return to Congress and sit through a Senate trial sometime next year, most likely in January.

This bombshell article suggests the real situation is very different - Pelosi has Trump dangling on a string and can keep him there until November:

I. Whensoever the Senate shall receive notice from the House of Representatives that managers are appointed on their part to conduct an impeachment against any person and are directed to carry articles of impeachment to the Senate, the Secretary of the Senate shall immediately inform the House of Representatives that the Senate is ready to receive the managers for the purpose of exhibiting such articles of impeachment, agreeably to such notice.

A normal reading of this clause would allow for no delay on the Senate’s part in receiving the House managers. But it also shows that the Senate can’t initiate a trial until the House appoints their managers and sends notice to that effect.

... Pelosi has the impeachment articles in hand now, and she can compel the Senate to drop what they’re doing and hold a trial anytime she feels like it. This is the leverage she’s using to try to compel the Senate to agree to terms that are fair to the prosecution. The Republicans would like to move quickly before the Courts compel the testimony of more witnesses and before any other damaging information comes to light. Pelosi does not share these incentives. Her caucus is in holiday recess for the next few weeks in any case, so she doesn’t have any urgent need to do anything but enjoy Christmas with her grandchildren.

She will not “lose by default” unless she never sends the referral. For now, she’s happy to let Trump and McConnell twist in the wind, knowing that time is her ally.

Maybe there is hope for the Republic.

I'm a bit surprised all that important information on the workings of the Constitution has (presumably) never been published and gossiped about before.

The man in the picture above, wearing a red tie, is the rider of the red horse of Revelation.

What is he doing and will he continue to do henceforward or day after day?

See, when the second seal was opened, there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. - sword is the speech of his mouth  -  his speech is like a sword prepared for to kill.

Self-help author Marianna Williamson has ended her US presidential campaign. If you're surprised the new-age guru got this far, don't be. She is very representative of modern America, writes Emily Olson.

Amazing:

[Marianne Williamson] wasn't registering a single per cent in the polls and hadn't qualified for a debate since July. She laid off her entire campaign staff earlier this month, citing a lack of funds in a desperate signal to donors.

But at the same time, it wasn't like her campaign was a complete failure.

She qualified for two debates by raising more than $US6 million ($8.6 million) from over 65,000 Americans — something traditional politicians had failed to do — and outlasted democratic darlings like Kamala Harris, Beto O'Rourke and Bill DeBlasio.

If it sounds surprising, remember that the self-care industry is a $10 billion entity in the US.

Horoscope apps are wildly popular, suddenly on-level with vitamins and yoga and face masks.

More than three quarters of Americans say they're "spiritual".
