    Why are threads being moved here form the politics forum that clearly meet the guidelines for politics. Like SCOTUS rulings on laws and EOs?

    It's really OVERFLOW. This SupCt ruling today generated 20+ threads. Volume was so great that SOME were consolidated in this New Forum..

    There's a balance between combining EVERYTHING into one thread in Politics and choosing some to be seeds for the Breaking News forum. In the morning -- on a Breaking story -- we'll keep consolidating in the "native forum". But as the day goes on and threads are STILL being spawned, the newer stuff MAY be moved to Breaking News.. UNLESS -- there are already threads there on the topic.

    Now if only this area has anything deserving posted in it..

    "Breaking! Trump has Taco Bowl" does not cut it.
