    It's not going to keep foreigners out... It is so tough for me to get how anyone would think that. Let's forget for a second that the majority of illegals come through the port of entry and simply overstay their visas. The wall they're currently planning on building can be overcome manually with sawing wire. A paraplegic could get through it without assistance. The wall that they wanted to build... you'd need to bring a rope.

    Meanwhile: drones are dirt cheap, surveillance equipment is dirt cheap. Maga tards will virtually work for free if you give them a Hummer and a badge. There are so many better solutions than a wall.

    I agree that on the grand scale it's nothing. 5B is nothing in the US national budget... you could obviously allocate it better tho. I just find it entertaining. It's bad that it takes so much focus from real issues. And it's bad that I give it so much attention instead of real issues... but at least I'm having fun.

    I don't care. It symbolises their desire to keep foreigners out, which triggers the left, especially the political class, because they are banking on the vote of nationalised foreigners to secure power.

    Why do you care so much? It's not your tax they're wasting.

    There are so many better solutions than a wall.
    I'd agree with this. Trump probably knows it too. So what's the real purpose of the wall?

    It's bad that it takes so much focus from real issues.
    Maybe this is why they want to build it. Everyone cries about the wall while USA continue their globalist agenda.

    The real reason for the wall... I think you know that I think that Trump is a retarded person. So I don't think there's a good reason. He said it and people applauded, so that's what he ran on. He almost forgot about it by the end of last year, but then he was watching fox news and Judge Jeanine told him that the wall isn't included in the budget he agreed to sign, so he threw a temper tantrum. And that's why I care. You put a retarded person in charge of the most powerful position in the world and it'll be entertaining to watch.

    If there's any strategy to the shutdown, it's to either stall the investigation or somehow create pressure that he can leverage to work out a deal for no prison for him or his children. - This would be a more solid theory if Trump wasn't so fucking retarded. I doubt he can think in that many steps.

    As much as I like the idea that he's stalling to keep himself from getting jail time, I'm inclined to think you're right. My favoured theory is that his top advisor (Fox News) told him to dig in his heels, and so he did, and now he's too stupid to find a way out of it.

    We have discussed the book "Confessions of an Economic Hitman" on here in the past

    These guys at The Intercept started to see too much unrest in Latin America, everything going on at the same time, it's just too much for it to be a coincidence.

    And lo and behold what did they find out with their investigation? The fucking book, while outdated as it's been in print for a while now, was right all along. Of course they don't mention it, as I'm sure they have no idea about the book or whatever, but the conclusions are spot on.

    I'm starting to think this LA refugee thing is quite literally the chickens coming home to roost. Is that the saying?

    I've spent a good minute trying to find the source for that video so it doesn't look like I hit F5 on Amee Vanderpool's twitter all day. No luck. This surpasses the magnets and steam meme. This is possibly the dumbest he has ever sounded and that's a low bar to limbo.

    Conservative news outlets proclaimed their disappointment at the top of their sites, with large headlines lamenting the deal. “NO WALL FUNDS,” Drudge wrote in red font. “GOVERNMENT OPEN… AND BORDER,” Breitbart’s headline blared, tacking on “NO WALL” in red font.

    That data conflicted with his world view, so he needs something to question it to dismiss all of it. Let him have it.

    Is NK's climate data accurate? Idk, it's a good question, either they asked it and were satisfied with what they found, or didn't find it an important enough question to pursue given their purposes.
  32. #3632
    cocco made the assumption I'm coming from a denial pov. I'm not. I'm open when it comes to climate change. It's pretty obvious human activity means more CO2, and it stands to reason that this has effects on the weather. However, it's also viable that such theories are exaggerated and even outright hijacked. I'm in no position to take a decisive stance on the issue.

    When data from isolated places like NK are presented as reliable facts, it does, for me at least, lend credence to the idea that there is at least a grain of politics involved in this subject.

    Trump Derangement Syndrome - Level 4. How do they get an eight minute piece on this? Although I must confess, I only made it to five mins.

    It's funny how "executive time" is tv, newspapers and internet. You could be forgiven for assuming soaps, crosswords and internet trolling, rather than keeping up with current affairs and engaging with normal people. I have no idea what he does with his day, but I'm not inclined to default to how I'd spend the working day, considering the old bugger is a great deal more successful than I am.

    If this is the best they've got on him at the moment, I guess it's a quiet week.

    Ong, you do know he had a $500,000,000 head start. He would be a billionaire just off interest alone. Is it really that weird that I'm not impressed.

    No, the small one million dollar loan was simply a lie. He was on his dad's payroll for 200k a year from age 3. His actual inheritance is closer to half a billion that was paid through systematic overcharging to evade inheritance tax.

    Yeah obviously he's someone doing the job of POTUS properly, not wasting his time with meetings with experts on important topics or reading up on stuff, but instead getting his briefings from Fox News. So much more efficient if you don't worry about trying to really understand anything.

    And yeah, he does do a fair bit of internet trolling btw.

    Oh yeah, I keep forgetting about how 'he's so successul'.

    Maybe the reason it's because he's actually a total boob at business. He got a half billion head start, and at one point was several hundred mill in debt, which is when he started getting shady loans from shady people - but I'm sure you'll hear all about it in the Mueller report. That pretty much makes him the biggest fuckup in the history of business. But hey, he's good at self-promotion and making gullible people believe he's superhumanly good at everything.

    "When it comes to people in the country without proper documentation, the majority of them didn't cross the Mexican border at all. Most of them came to the United States legally — but then don't leave."

    A wall only makes it harder for them to leave, right? This wall is going to cause more illegal immigrants that it stops!!!

    I'd love it, but I don't think so. He has already committed to "the wall is already being built." and "finish the wall"

    I don't understand why he hung on for so long. People who are so stupid that they think a wall will stop anyone with arms legs and a brain... surely they're dumb enough that you can just tell them that it's being built and then tell them it's finished a little later, and they'll buy it.

    Here's a cute interview with McAfee that's completely unrelated.

    I hope Adult Swim starts doing politics.

    There are people out there who think that is serious journalism. Obviously they don't know who Jena Friedman is or what "Adult Swim" means.

    I never liked McAfee before now, but he's fucking awesome in this interview.

    I've seen her before, but wouldn't have immediately known it was satire if not for the fact it was uploaded by Adult Swim. I know who they are.

    They are both brilliant. I initially thought it must be a lookalike. I didn't expect that level of satire from someone I assumed was just a rich asshole.

    I really want to give them the benefit of doubt and say: it's plausible that they're actually worried that a too-progressive candidate on the left could hand Trump the election, should he be a free man in 2020. But it's really hard to not see their silly little dance around the completely fabricated Omar controversy - what jew would even disagree. It's not a conspiracy that there's a pro-israel lobby influencing american politics. To call that anti-semitism with a straight face... it's hard not to see that as anything as their corporate sponsors talking. I'm sure billionaires across the country wake up in a cold sweat over the prospect of AOC 2024.

    idk what their game is with Howard Schultz. That makes no sense to me. Platforming that guy seems like a game with no win condition. Just don't even give him air time.

    You call it not a great job, I call it unprecedented. Did you know that Trump's special representative for Venezuela was defending the US sponsored coup in guatemala that put a dictator into power that later committed mass murder? I didn't know that. Did you know he supported a coup attempt against Hugo Chavez... the current president of Venezuela. That seems relevant if you're the "special representative for venezuela."
    Who else calls out these people? I have never heard someone in congress call out these war mongers. Certainly not in their first month on the job, after the president just called for their resignation. CNN and MSNBC are calling her an open anti-semite and all of right wing media want her dead. In context, this is not "a great job," this is a ruthless beating. This is domestic violence. If I see a bulldozer rip through a building at 90mph, I don't complain about the accent.

    How so not?

    She called out this dude's doings to his face.

    How is that "not such a great job"?

    Trump picked from the bottom of the fucking barrel again (what a surprise), so I guess it's time for someone to remind people who the fuck that asshole is.

    Why don't you despise every leader USA has had during your lifetime? USA has, for a very long time, been supportive of dictators and warmongers, so long as it in in USA's economic interests.

    *former
    Chavez is dead, if he's still president of Venezuela then fair play to him. Also, it's worth noting that the economic warfare engaged against Venezuela very much predates Trump's time in office.

    If you're blaming Trump for Venezuela, you're a bit thick. And if you think a new leader will take a different path, you're even more thick.

    That's not to say I'm impressed with Trump in this regard. Had he de-escalated this issue, I'd be hailing him. Sadly that's not the case. I guess USA really needs that oil. Either that, or they really don't want to see an economically successful socialist state.

    Who says I'm not? Trump is giving them jobs, Omar is calling them out.

    I don't blame him for it, but nothing will change under him - if anything he's giving warmongers like Bolton free reign because he's too stupid to delegate.

    Trump's presidency demonstrates to me that the president doesn't control American foreign policy.

    You talk about him going to prison and all that bollocks. That will only happen if he doesn't toe the line, if he disobeys his superiors.

    USA is all theatre.

    The format isn't great, it lends itself to grand standing and the reduction of nuanced situations into yes or no questions-- but even given that, she didn't get him on anything. She asserted what she thought he thought, then didn't let him answer.

    She got everything out of order. It's like she was telling a joke and she lead with the punchline. If he's on the record saying he thought X was good, then ask him if he stands by that. Then bring up the genocide associated with X and ask him if despite the genocide he still stands by his positive assessment of X. This way you've made him pro genocide by his own words. What she did was just say that he's pro genocide.

    Jack and Oscar, you guys seem confused about my critique. I'm not knocking her position-- I don't know enough about it. I'm saying that her tactics were rookie as fuck and shit like that doesn't convert anyone and possibly alienates moderates who just see this without the knowledge of the context.

    As for her being an antisemite according to CNN, at least they're consistent: having anything critical to say about anything Islamic and you're an islamophobe, have anything negative to say about Israel and you're an antisemite.
  69. #3669
    They're not consistent. To be consistent, they would have to say that any kind of critisism, whether justified or not, is hate speech.

    Strange. Looking at your reply it would seem like *he* gave *her* an actual chance to make her point uninterrupted.

    Well, she did ask him. He said he was.

    Focus on the message, never on the messenger.

    LOL CNN being consistent.

    They do consistently hide the better presidential candidates you guys have though. Giving all sorts of platforms to the shit ones.

    That is honestly a concern. I don't understand their logic. I'm trying not to be too cynical here... I'll put down my tinfoil hat and imagine they are promoting corporate sock-puppet democrats because they think they'll have the funds to win against Trump in 2020. I think they are under the wrong impression that a relevant number of current Trump supporters will cross the aisle if you put up a candidate that's center enough. But I think you'll lose way more voters to non-votes if you put up Klobuchar or Harris than you'll win over trump-servatives.

    Who the fuck is Jussie Smollett?

    ...he responded to this skepticism by saying that he believed that, if he had said his attackers were Mexicans, Muslims or black people, "the doubters would have supported me much more... And that says a lot about the place that we are in our country right now."
    Spoiler - they were black.

    I really don't think anyone cares about that outside of The_Donald. The US is closing in on the 50th mass shooting of 2019, and those aren't even newsworthy anymore. Why would some actor nobody has ever heard of, claiming he got an ouchie by some meanies be in any way relevant?

    I only know of this story from what T_D is spreading about it and it doesn't add up. Is it really a fact that he paid two giant black guys to play Trump supporters and act out an attack that nobody witnessed? How does that make any sense? But even if that's true, I am aggressively disinterested in this complete non-story.

    You don't care that someone creates a hate crime, and the media jump all over it for political reasons?

    Do you really hate Trump that much that you're willing to abandon all sense of morality to see him fall?
