  1. It’s remarkable and absolutely unprecedented how many of Trump’s own hand-picked WH senior staff despise and denounce him as the worst president in history and who confirm just about every criticism that’s been said about him: ignorant, unstable, extreme narcissist, despotic. And these people were mostly Republicans in good standing who were highly respected by other Republicans.

  2. Batshit right-wing conspiracies about the MSM are exactly that The real problem with MSM is the commodification of news where news outlets are trying to attract and retain advertisers, shareholders and the audience instead of simply reporting the facts. This leads outlets to sensationalize and dramatize stories that in reality are not so sensational or dramatic and to issue editorial directions like what’s alleged in the OP

  3. This thread is hilarious... The Chuds claim that the media is "leftist", now, even when they work against "leftist" causes like emancipation of Palestine. My prediction is that the Chuds will eventually turn Marxist. They already have the kernel value: they despise the "elites"...

  4. Hey genius: she said Trump partnered with Russia to influence her the American voters, not that there was massive election fraud and then launch into baseless lunacy like the Right did. Dude are you dense??? It was debunked by the fact that no evidence of criminal activity was found AFTER THREE YEARS OF THIS ACCUSATION circulating on right wing lunatic circles. and a reasonable accusation exists. People are legally allowed to submit ballots foe their immediate family members and a woman submits 3 ballots. You are hallucinating if you think that “proves” anything. Like a true totalitarian you demand proof of innocence even though there’s no proof of crime. You copied and pasted it in your own post, the original post on this thread. therefore you saiw it. Are you really trying to make us believe you created this thread with a copy-paste article you don’t even believe? Seriously you have no concept of what living in a democracy means. THE PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE is a cornerstone of democracy. It’s completely unsurprising that you have no concept of it. The absolute absence of any evidence of wrongdoing 3 YEARS AFTER THE FACT DESPITE ALL INVESTIGATIONS AND AUDITS means that by all definitions she is innocent. BTW contrary to your assertion, the opposite of saying someone is guilty is saying they are innocent, not your “we can never be sure”

  6. You show up in a thread chock full of context and reply to a post with very specific context and expect people to understand that you want to talk about something completely different? Good luck with that. You claim prominent voices saying terrible things and use as examples people we've never heard of, and you expect us to understand that you just chose obscure people for some reason? Were there no prominent examples as your claimed? Wouldn't those have been better examples? What we have is a big communication problem. If you want to talk about a perceived global increase in anti-semitism, great, make that case, but people accusing Israel of genocide is not anti-semitic. It's a (so far) exaggeration, but it's a criticism of the policy of the nation of Israel, not an attack on semitic people. Hamas is not powerful. Regardless of their feelings, they did not attempt--nor could they attempt-- to destroy Israel. They can only antagonize and provoke. The power asymmetry is vast. Of course no one sane thinks Hamas is committing genocide. They just aren't capable. Israel, on the other hand could entirely eliminate the Palestinians without breaking a sweat. They must exercise restraint, and must do so visibly. The world is now telling them it's too much, too casual and too careless. Thousands of dead children, and more bodies piling up every day, no longer looks like justice. It looks like a long, slow path toward extinction. If they continue so wantonly, they will lose our support. They will look to the rest of the world like the villains Hamas accuses them of being.

  7. It must be different in Ontario, since there is actually an auto insurers chart that lists the increase of premiums. It's 250% for a DUI, however that ends 3 years and a day after the offense, so it will drop back to prior levels, even with a suspension as it's a mandatory 90-day suspension regardless. Another thing to consider, is Alberta passed laws mainly decriminalising drunk driving, which means it's an issue with the Highways and Traffic division. I received a "administrative penalty." Even though it's pretty much the same penalties as a DUI, it does not go on a criminal record, and in Alberta, does not affect insurance premiums as long as Ontario.

  8. WTF is wrong with you? That's factual history, not an opinion. Trump (via Pompeo) met with the Taliban and unilaterally made a deal to leave the country to them and do a full withdrawal. There were about 13,000 troops in the country when Trump made the deal--enough to keep the Taliban in check. After his deal with the Taliban, Trump started drawing down troops. He actually publicly announced that they would all be home by Christmas 2020, four months before the May date he agreed to leave, but they couldn't pull it off. Remember, this is a man who thought he would get a second term and would finish the withdrawal himself. By the last months of the Trump administration there were just 2500 troops in country and Taliban violence was ramping up. Biden came into office to find that there really was no plan for that final exit and extended thr final withdrawal date. That pissed off the Talies and there weren't enough troops left to keep them in check. So the Taliban started taking what Trump had given them and the exit turned into a shit show. ^^^Those are all facts. If you want to say that the US withdrawal from Afghanistan was a surrender to the Taliban, it's 100% true that it was Trump who did the surrendering. Biden also planned to exit Afghanistan if Trump hadn't, but Trump negotiated with the Taliban and removed the bulk of the troops. Frankly, it was going to end in some version of shit show regardless of who was in office for the final stage of withdrawal. The Taliban never had any intention of doing anything other than retaking the country. They escalated violence while Trump was still in the white house. The only way to reassert control would have been surging troops back in, and neither Biden nor Trump was going to do that. I'm not sure how you missed all that recent history, but next time you talk about us "surrending" you'll know the guy you're talking about is Trump.

  11. To an insane person like you the sane majority seems crazy. Your hilarious words sound like: “ Denying that Aliens are living among us is exactly what someone brainwashed by aliens would say! Which proves that it’s all true!!! CONSPIRACYYYY!!!!” The reason why people who don’t watch CNN sound similar to CNN (to you) is because we all live in reality while you live in a conservative fake news fever dream bubble. Although IMO CNN like most American TV news outlets is quite guilty of the sensationalism and dramatization I mentioned earlier. For that reason I don’t watch TV news at all.

  12. Remember your MAGA logic: If the polls predict a Trump victory and Trump wins, it proves the polls are correct representation of the people’s will If the polls predict a Trump victory and Trump loses, it proves the election is rigged If the polls predict a Biden victory and Biden loses it proves the polls and MSM are part of a vast left-wing conspiracy that tried and failed to influence the election in Biden’s favour If the polls predict a Biden victory and Biden wins it proves the polls and MSM are part of a vast left-wing conspiracy AND that the election was also rigged by a vast left wing conspiracy.

  14. Criticism isn’t hate speech. You wanna hear hate speech listen to any Republican on any day. The hypocrisy is astounding: MAGAs proudly amd repeatedly calling Obama a n*gger and Hillary a c*nt while complaining about such behaviour being called “deplorable”. Or when they say the thing they love about Trump is that he’s not afraid to violate norms and conventions but then have a fit when Obama criticized Trump because that defied the convention of ex-presidents not criticizing sitting presidents Or MTG and Boebert heckling the president during the state of the union, chasing democrats does hallways of the Capitol yelling insults while recording it on their phones for social media, and them after they had a falling out MTG calling her former bestie Boebert a “little b*tch” in the House……then MTG complains about a “lack of decorum” when a colleague simply politely stated that something she said wasn’t correct and Boebert complains about people criticizing her for getting kicked out of a public theatre for vaping and groping some guy. “Thick-walled, highly compartmentalized minds” is how the psychological profile of MAGAs has been described by psych professionals.

  15. If anything i think soldiers really think they are sub par, most Canadians think they are far better than the soldiers that serve, you should hear the stories that soldiers tell about how they have been treated by the general public...and how it effects them mentally...Yes there is a huge difference in our stations of life. You did criticized all the men and women that served with your statement, or atleast that is how it came across to me...which people are you talking about, is this a myth or fact.... Well sir most of the world is boosting their militaries to record levels, men, and equipment, NATO, 5 Eyes, all are spending more than ever before, China is building its military at record speeds, and has clearly stated it will take Taiwan in 2025...US has already stated it will defend Taiwan, lets not even mention Russia and it's aggression, in fact it has threaten both Finland and Sweden with military aggression..in fact there is more conflicts raging in the world today, than there was in the cold war...the threat is there you just have to look... Canadians seem to think that becasue we have a weak military we will not be obligated to send Canadians into these new conflicts where we are signatory...Not true, we will expend lives and resources ready or not...whats that mean to you and me...perhaps nothing, your sons and daughters may be told to answer the call of our nation , and in sub par equipment becasue that is the only stuff available. we have done this in WWI, and WWII, even Korea, sent men and women into a war zone with little training and shitty equipment...and if you think it can't happen again...well sir it has already happened 3 times see a pattern there... But our Government and it's people think it is easier to bury our sons and daughters rather than equip them with life saving equipment...and frankly to be honest, I don't think this country is worth my son and daughters lives.. not in it's present state.

  21. We're not equal. I'm stronger than my wife. Its not even close. I work in a male dominated field, and it is insanely competitive. Salaries are much higher. My wife works in a female dominated field, which is more nurturing. Salaries are high (potentially), but would come with heavy handed hours. Most end up opting for cushier options in this field, that pay less -- she was no different. She wanted to be a mom, and needed that work life balance. I didn't, for the longest time. I was happy working insane hours, on some "the early bird gets the worm" mentality. This is highly common for men and women. Which is why in highly competitive and scrappy fields where work life balance isn't existent, men *shockingly* tend to do a lot better. I've worked with scrappy women who didn't need a work life balance, but this isn't the norm if she is of a certain age range, when you look at statistics. We bring different things to the table. I don't understanding how celebrating those differences is a bad thing. Me decorating my house, is having a table, couch, and nice TV and stand and everything being centered and clean. My wife thinks of things I don't even consider. Plants, pictures of us, and brings warmth to the space I just was blind to. I can fix anything, and bring my own stamp to things. Why not celebrate this? Tons of things she can do, I know I can't. Vice versa. It will never be equal, until you make both roles fully equal. Someone tries to break into our house, and I hear a window getting smashed. Who do you think is going to check that out? My wife? Road trip. We get a flat tire. Who do you think is likeliest to lift the car, and swap the tire? I still see women who expect to be let ahead, at say, a door or be considered an a*****e. Why is that? Don't you want equality? I dated a lot before meeting my wife. Who do you think was expected to pay? Heck, who do you think my wife expected to pay for our first date? Shouldn't women pay if they plan the date? From my experience, women paying for men, tends to dry up a vagina real quick.

  22. The current movement is turning men into b*****s. People think effeminate men are a good thing, as it eliminates toxic masculinity. Yet tons of toxic women who are allowed to be this way, with impunity. Nothing wrong with being effeminate an male. Something dangerous in suppressing strong men, who are highly masculine under guise of pointing to their toxicity. Until the roof of your house starts to leak, or your car's alternator starts working horribly, and you realize you need what would most likely be a highly masculine male, to fix it. Now many are too afraid of breaking a nail, causing mass shortages in some of these fields. Same thing goes for relationships. Women are forced to become the men they desire, making dating them much harder considering an effeminate male won't be bringing sufficient things to the table to satisfy such high standards. I've dated quite a few independent women who were used to being mommy to men (openly ranting about what had happened to men), but couldn't handle my independent nature. I.E They are almost in shock, when I pay for the meals, have my own house and car and am good and don't need them. I choose to be with them. This is no longer the norm, and they only have their own movement to blame for it.

This reminds me of you: "First, the MSM lied about the ___________, but I liked it, so I laughed at them. Then the MSM lied about the ___________, and I didn't really like them either, so I thought it was equally sweet. Then they lied about people that I liked, and I was really butthurt by it, and I whined about it, but I'm still ok with all the other lies." GFYS marcus.

  37. Your kind of thinking is becoming obsolete. It has no basis in humanity. It has no basis in international law. Your advocacy is archaic, inhumane and is being rejected. I don't care for Hamas. They're just a tool used by Zionists to try to justify and explain away the atrocities being committed by the vile state of Israel against the Palestinians. Israel's inhumane treatment of people is worse than the Chinese government's treatment of people. Israel is worse than the Russian government. They are killing more innocent people than the Iranian government. Israel is the enemy of humanity. My buddies are the innocent civilians that are being killed. You may have racist views of Palestinians, and want to advocate for their death, but I won't and I will continue to speak out against advocates of death and destruction.

And the way you seem to control your anger, means you have trouble communicating which goes symbiotically with a lack of general intelligence.

  47. That's already very much a thing. Trudeau taught us to hate each other as groups during the pandemic. Those who didn't want to be vaccinated were labeled as 'bigots and misogynists". Just as the maga people are labeled by the left in the states. He said they are 'wastes of space' and said a decision would have to be made as to whether these people 'would be tolerated'. And i watched many families get ripped apart by that. Friendships ended, couples broke up - and i don't mean one or two here and there. It was a pretty common phenomenon, and most people know at least ONE case of that happening. We became divided - we did not 'come together' to weather the storm as is our tradition. We've already had a number of actual 'maga' instances of people being attacked or harassed for wearing maga hats or the like. So it's not really a question. It can happen, it is happening. In all of human history it's been easier for those seeking power to break people apart and divide them than it is to bring them all together. We're no different.

  48. Elon Musk is an antisemite. What can anyone do about it I went to the LA Auto Show yesterday and had the opportunity to drive a Tesla. Not many waiting in line, unlike Ford, Jeep, and Nissan. After the drive, they asked about my desire to buy one. I told the guy I probably would not consider Tesla due to Musk's antisemitism and failure to provide Star Link service in Ukraine's Crimea attack. The guy claimed ignorance about both, not that I believed him.

  49. Good job finding the one "large-scale" massacre of Palestinians by Jews. Geez, what a bunch of monsters. FYI the Jews were massacred by Arabs many times before that in the past 100 years. 1830 The Persian Jewish population of Tabriz, Iran is attacked by a mob, resulting in most of the Jewish community either being killed or fleeing.[3] 1830 The Jews of Shiraz are forced to convert to Islam. 1834 The 1834 looting of Safed was a month-long attack on the Jewish population of Safed by local Arab and Druze villagers. It was full of large scale looting, as well as the killing and raping of Jews and the destruction of many homes and synagogues. Before the attacks Jews made up over 50% of the population, but many of them fled to nearby cities which reduced their presence drastically. 1834 Jewish heroine and martyr Sol Hachuel is publicly decapitated at 17 years old in Fez, Morocco. She is executed for refusing to convert to Islam. 1839 Forty-plus Persian Jews are killed and the entire Jewish community of Mashhad is forced to convert to Islam in the Allahdad.[6] Many of them practised Judaism in secret, which led to the Mashhadi Jews, whom today number in the thousands. 1840 The Damascus affair: false blood libel accusations cause arrests and atrocities, culminating in the seizure of 63 Jewish children and attacks on Jewish communities throughout the Middle East. 1860 The Jews of Hamadan are accused of mocking the Ta'zieh ceremonies for Imam Husain, several of them are fined and some have their ears and noses cut off as punishment.[9] 1863 A Jew in Hamadan is lynched by a Muslim mob, and many others are severely injured after being accused of insulting Muhammad.[10] 1864 At least 500 Moroccan Jews are massacred in Marrakech and Fez. 1866 The Jews of Barforush are forcibly converted to Islam. When they are allowed to revert to Judaism thanks to French and British ambassadors, a Muslim mob kills 18 Jews, burning two of them alive.[11][12] 1869 18 Tunisian Jews are killed in a pogrom and an Arab mob loots Jewish homes and stores, burns synagogues, on Jerba Island. 1875 Twenty Jews are killed by a Muslim mob in Demnat, Morocco. 1881 Pogrom against the Jews in Tlemcen, Algeria.[18] 1882 Jewish population of Algiers is attacked by a Muslim mob.[21] 1892 Mulla Abdullah issues a fatwa to kill all the Jews of Hamadan if they refuse to abide by Jewish restrictions. The local Persian Jews were later ordered to become Muslims or face death.[23] 1897 Synagogues and Jewish homes are pillaged in Oran.[24] 1897 Synagogues are ransacked and Jews are murdered in Tripolitania.[25] 1898 Violent anti-Jewish riots erupt in Algiers.[24] 1907 Over 60 Jews in the Mellah of Casablanca are killed in a pogrom by Kabyle Muslims. Many more were wounded, and a large number of women and children were carried off.[3] 1910 The 1910 Shiraz blood libel was a pogrom of the Jewish quarter in Shiraz, Iran. It was sparked by accusations that the Jews had ritually murdered a Muslim girl. By the end of the pogrom, 12 Jews were killed, 50 or so were wounded, and 6,000 were robbed of all their possessions. 1912 The Tritl, or the 1912 Fez massacre left 42 Moroccan Jews dead. 1921 Jaffa riots in Palestine. The riot resulted in the deaths of 47 Jews and 48 Arabs. 146 Jews and 73 Arabs were wounded. Most Arab casualties resulted from clashes with British forces attempting to restore order.[9] They attacked Jewish pedestrians and destroyed Jewish homes and stores. They beat and killed Jews in their homes, including children, and in some cases split open the victims' skulls.[4] 1929 The ancient Jewish community of Hebron (Palestine/Israel) is massacred by local Muslims over rumors that the Jews were planning to seize control of the Temple Mount.[19] 1929 18–20 Jewish residents of Safed were brutally killed in the 1929 Palestine riots. Palestine again. 1934 2,000 Afghani Jews are expelled from their towns and forced to live in the wilderness. 1934 The 1934 Thrace pogroms were a series of violent attacks that occurred in Tekirdağ, Edirne, Kırklareli, and Çanakkale. Over 15,000 Jews had to flee from the region. 1934 34 Algerian Jews were killed and hundreds were injured by Muslim mobs during the 1934 Constantine pogrom. 200 Jewish stores were raided, the total property damage was estimated at over 150 million Poincare francs. It also sent a quarter of Constantine's Jewish population into poverty.[25] 1936 The Bloody Day in Jaffa refers to various violent attacks on Jews in Jaffa by mobs of Muslims. 1938 Arab rioters rush into the Jewish Kiryat Shmuel neighborhood, killing 19 Jews, 11 of whom were children in the 1938 Tiberias massacre. 1941 The Farhud pogrom in Baghdad results in 780 Jews dead, over 1,000 wounded.[45] 1941 Gabès pogrom in French Tunisia leaves 8 Jews dead and at least 20 wounded. 1945 The 1945 Tripoli pogrom was a violent massacre of the Jewish population of Tripoli by Muslim rioters. After days of violence 140+ Jews were dead and hundreds were injured. In the aftermath 4,000 Jews were left homeless and thousands were reduced to poverty. 9 Synagogues were destroyed, along with thousands of Jewish homes and businesses. 1945 The 1945 Anti-Jewish riots in Egypt started as an anti-Zionist demonstration, but it ended with the killing of 5 Egyptian Zionists by a Muslim mob and over 300 other Jews were injured. 1947 Anti-Jewish riots erupt in Aleppo, resulting in some 75 Jews murdered and several hundred wounded. 1947 A mob of Muslim sailors looted Jewish homes and shops in the Manama riots. In the end one Jewish woman was dead and a Synagogue was destroyed. That's the list of massacres of Jews by muslims in the ME in just the last 118 years before the lone massacre of muslims that you cited from 1948. Keep in mind that in all of these places, the Jewish communities were quite tiny, and completely at the mercy of the muslim populations around them. They posed literally no threat to the muslim populations at all. They were only massacred out of pure religious bigotry. It's worth noting that the highest estimate from massacre at Deir Yassin was 250 but most "scholars" (according to your own article) peg the number at less than half of that. The Farhud attack alone was 700 dead jews, almost 7 times bigger than Deir Yassin. I listed about 35 different attacks on Jewish communities besides that one. There are also a few massacres of Jews up there by Palestinians, preceding Deir Yassin by as much as 26 years. Of course, all of this pales in comparison to what happened in Pakistan. You'd have to do a Deir Yassin every day for 10,000 days to equal what the Pkistanis did to Sikhs and Hindus, but for some reason (not religious bigotry ? ) Arabs are fixating on Deir Yassin. @taxme this is for you too. I figure that you'd love to see a list of murdered Jewish communities. Sweet dreams, killer.
