    Afterwards and after the drop outs haley did pick up some and definitely improved her positon but trump picked up even more and is still leading her handily.

    If she doesn't win by a fairly decent margin i think it's all over. She would have no reasonable path to success. I rather doubt she has one if she wins but at least she'd be able to pretend a little longer.

    The question is will all the positive attention push trump up more in the polls?

    The Ron Desantis gambit didn't work.  The lawfare isn't working.  Taking Trump's name off the ballots isn't going to work, with SCOTUS making the ultimate decision.  The Media propaganda isn't working.  Seriously, Nikki Haley is the left's last hope to defeat Trump, because they know Biden won't be able to do it.  And she doesn't have the horses, so where will they turn?

    The underlying reality is that if Trump retakes the White House, it means that the game is over.  The bribes, the back room deals, the blackmails, the vote swindling, the endless warmongering, the real reason they won't close the border, all of it will come under the microscope.  Which means that many of these politicians, past and present, will be going to jail.

    This is why they are so desperate, they are facing jail time and they know it.  They are trying to stay out of jail and the collapse that will bring to their careers and bank accounts, their families and the like.  The lies, the bribes, the theft of public funds and worse, is at risk of all coming out.  So, they've got to be gaming this out.  If Haley fails, what to do?

    Replace Biden?  Cancel the election due to an emergency?  Believe me, both are in play.  Conveniently, there is a new virus "X" that could turn into something like the next pandemic, just in time to lock down and mail in those votes again.  Or, Gavin Newsom and MIchelle Obama would both love to replace Biden as the nominee.  I'm telling you, this year is going to get crazy.

    I guess you didn't hear that it was the Koch Industries Pac which has been backing Haley. Dems have nothing to do with her surge. 

    You are very confused. Trump sent the rioters to the Capitol to stop the EC certification. AKA, "steal" as he likes to call it.

    wow, 5 posts in a row?  So many strangers on the internet that MUST be corrected, eh?  Keep trying to stop the wind, surely you'll figure out the truth eventually.

  3. 450 miles of tunnels.  Four hundred.  And fifty miles.  That is not a people interested in peace with Israel.  Whomever it was that made those tunnels wants something other than peace.

    The news media is plastered with propaganda regarding this conflict.  Completely plastered.  That means, most of what you are posting in this thread is propaganda.  The 450 miles is too.  But who started this particular conflict?  Did the Israeli army go around and slaughter its own people?  No it did not.  
    Israel was willing to live in relative peace.  The other side was not.  If you can’t see something this plain, it’s because you are blinded by propaganda.  I suggest you stop consuming all news feeds for 3 weeks and let yourself adjust to a new normal.

    It May give you a new perspective when you start reading the propaganda again.

    And what difference did Trump make? What did he do that had any impact? Or did he just incite them further, and cause more division?

    Everyone knew who Churchill was long before he became PM.

    Churchill was part of the establishment.  I am suggesting someone from out of the establishment.  Perhaps it’s just fantasizing, but that’s all I’ve got at this point.

  5. Let's widen the focus a little to take in the last 60 plus years.  Does anyone disagree that attacking Afghanistan in response to 9/11 was folly?(As if their government had anything to do with it)  As was attacking Iraq when all of the terrorists were Saudi nationals.  I fully supported both responses at the time, and it wasn't until years later I began to understand that Bush Jr(and Cheney) was not trustworthy.  There really weren't WMD in Iraq.  Saddam didn't need to be deposed.  Neither did Gaddafi.  Neither did leaders in South America or Asia(Vietnam, Korea).  The US has been very busy in the last 60+ years, have they not? 

    We speak of decadence, but there is something else at play I think.  Something that goes beyond politics, religion or any of the other usual suspects.  In that time frame, 2 presidents have been shot, and one forced to resign.  Historic economy crashes in 1980 and 2008.  So many military actions that you can call the US anything but peaceful.  And I don't quite know how to label 9/11.  Really, I don't know what to make of it. 

    Perhaps my perspective is off, but Kennedy being taken out seemed to change the course of the nation.  The very next day, Johnson entered the country into the Vietnam war, the most disgusting waste of American blood and treasure that accomplished nothing.  I don't think it would be wrong to say that there is a lot of justified hatred that has been earned by the US around the globe since then.  What has the US become? 

    Eisenhower warned his nation in 1961 of the dangers of a Military Industrial Complex.  It seems this entity has benefited greatly in the last 60 years.  But other than that, I really have no answers.  I'm glad to see others can recognize that the American empire has been in decline, because many on this forum seem blissfully unaware. 

    It is inevitable that another power or alliance would form to oppose what America has become.  An powerful economic union has formed in the BRICS nations.  They now have over 40% of global GDP and a similar percentage of oil production.  While Biden tries to wean his nation off of fossil fuels, an economic catastrophe is brewing.  This will only aid BRICS. 

    In all of this, I feel like a farmer.  I can not change the weather one whit.  I can only stick my head out the window and say it's raining.

     

  6. In the fallout of Iowa, a revelation.  Deranged democrats are trying to steal the primaries for Haley.  The plot involves registering as republicans, which is like personal fraud.  Then they vote in the republican primaries as if they are republicans, for Nikki Haley.

     

    The scheme will fail, of course.  Thankfully there aren’t enough deranged democrats to affect the outcomes, and Trump supporters will easily carry the day.  But it’s like the presidential election is happening during the primaries, because Biden won’t have a prayer, and the Dem brain trust knows it.

    TLDR -  young people in Canada are flocking to trump and the conservatives here at home as they become more and more angry about the dysfunction caused by the left.

    Some Key take aways:

    But the surprising popularity of Republican candidate Donald Trump — particularly among Canadian young people — may reveal a turn towards populism that is much larger than expected. 

    Trump came in with the unusually high support of 33 per cent of Canadian respondents. 
    That’s higher than the current approval rating for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, which the Angus Reid Institute last pegged at 31 per cent. It’s also slightly higher than the percentage by which Trudeau won his last federal election; the Liberals secured their minority government in 2021 with just 32.62 per cent of ballots cast. 
    But probably the survey’s most surprising result was that younger Canadians were disproportionately likely to favour Trump over Biden. So much so, in fact, that young Canadian voters emerged as more pro-Trump even than young voters in the U.S. 
    And young Canadian men emerged as the single most pro-Trump demographic in the poll. The survey saw a majority (52 per cent) of under-44 Canadian men vote Trump over Biden.
    This was higher even than the Trump support found within respondents who identified as Conservatives; those Canadians only picked Trump over Biden in 50 per cent of case.
    For months now, polls have shown that young people form the single strongest voter base for the Conservatives under leader Pierre Poilievre.   
     

    What Canada needs is a person from outside of the political establishment, the elite power structure, to rise up.  Someone not tainted by existing political parties, like a Preston Manning, who changed the political landscape. 

  8. The hardcore left continue on in complete denial of the sea change that is happening all around them.  But at least 1/3 of Biden voters have woken up to the disaster their party is in.  
     

    It’s due to a steady drip, drip , drip of decisions, results and jaw dropping embarrassments.  The Administration’s heavy handed Covid response.  Social media shutting down and banning  free speech.  Billions for Ukraine and none for the border or disaster stricken areas.  The Biden admin changing the definition of what a recession is, so they can claim there hasn’t been one.  Allowing gender change for children behind the parents backs.  

    Drying up Ukraine aid and then blindly supporting Israel.  Lying about the real inflation rate and unemployment rate.  Three years of blaming everything on Trump instead of taking ownership.  
    It’s been an unmitigated disaster.  The good news is, it’s finally waking people up to the reality that Trump was better.  He’s looking better and better.  Hence the multiple court cases against him.  Lawfare.  That’s all they’ve got.  And had he actually done something illegal they’d have thrown him in prison years ago.  So he’s clean…

  9. This just in:  Vivek drops out AND endorses President Trump!  You better come up with another plan, Biden and Dem/Media/DeepState braintrust, because Trump will be the nominee.  Court cases and lawfare?  Say goodbye to Fani Willis. 

    Also say goodbye to the "republican" candidate who came out of Texas, John Anthony Castro.  He apparently got his name on the ballot so he could immediately sue to get Trump off the ballots of 24 states.  Unfortunately for Mr. Castro, he's now been arrested on federal charges regarding tax laws. 

    Interesting case, this one.  He never raised a cent for his campaign, just the 20 million that he contributed.  He never participated in a debate.  His only play was to sue Trump in 24 states, trying to get his name off the ballot since Trump incited J6.  Funny how his efforts fall in line with the rest of the Dem effort at large, eh?  So long, sucker.

    Biden seems to be doing the "orange man bad" routine as his opening, but i think that's actually benefitting trump in the nomination race.  It's working up his base from the looks of things.  And i don't think it's making people who don't like trump dislike him more, and i don't think it's winning over the fence sitters.

    The problem biden will have with that approach is that the newspapers have been screaming about how horrible trump is for 7 years now and really pushing it since they lost the whole 'russian collusion' argument.  So it's kind of 'baked in' at this point  "yeah yeah - trump bad person - what's he planning to do for the economy?"

    Here’s a thought about the 7 years of “Trump bad” from the media.  The media has become the boy who cried wolf.  They’ve been waking the masses up to the realization that Trump isn’t actually that bad, and CERTAINLY better than Biden.

    And perhaps the possibility of a Biden candidate in November would actually be a good thing. I’ve been saying all along that there is no way Biden will make it to the election, but I’m starting to hope he does make it.  He’s such a mess that nothing would help Trump’s campaign like a stumbling bumbling Joe.

  11. I was relaxing this evening, eating made-on-the-stove popcorn while watching some Badlands.  Canncon to be specific.  And it dawned on me. (BTW, did you hear that Hertz Rentals is going to sell 20,000 of their EVs and shift back to gas powered cars?  Too expensive to insure and repair compared to gas powered) 

    It dawned on me that Trump is going to have to beat the Deep State at its own game before the election, if he is to win it.  All the lies to do with J6, Ukraine, Russia, China,  NATO, Covid, CIA, FBI, DOJ, Clintons, Biden and both parties, to name a few.  It's a tall order, but I also realized he's actually succeeding.  Truth is making a come back as it leaks in like light around a door frame in a dark room.  And of course, it's not just Trump.  He's got an organization that is quite large, has no shortage of resources, and is very dedicated.  Then you have conservatives across all demographics that are stepping up and spreading the truth.

    I mentioned to some colleagues this week that one of our main governing bodies in BC quietly announced to its staff to stop using the Rapid Tests as they are too inaccurate to be reliable.  To my surprise, everyone agreed that all of this rapid testing for covid didn't really help.  So the billions spent on these and the useless masks for 3 years was just another waste, and people are starting to realize this.  I wonder how many millions of people were improperly counted as covid patients when they just had a flu?

    My point to you being, that the blind trust to our medical system and the "science" has taken a beating.  People are waking up.  People are realizing that the EV has serious issues.  The economies suck.  We're being lied to.  9 more months of these revelations, and you can see how Trump could actually win back the White House.

  12. Good news to start off the week, another Hezbollah leader bites the dust!

    https://news.yahoo.com/israeli-strike-lebanon-kills-senior-111732058.html

    The security sources identified him as Wissam al-Tawil, the deputy head of a unit within the Radwan force. They said he and another Hezbollah fighter were killed when their car was hit in a strike on the Lebanese village of Majdal Selm.


    "Whoever thinks of war with us - in one word, he will regret it," Nasrallah said.

     

    As you can see, these Hezbollah guys are not the sharpest tools ⚒️ n the tool shed.  That was 4 words…

    BRICS is helping damage the USD. Only a fool would argue otherwise. 

    I blame Biden. He's weak and the entire world knows it.

    Yeah, BRICS just added Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Egypt, Iran and Ethiopia.  They are all dumping USD, and then you have countries like Japan that are selling US treasuries and buying into their own currencies to keep them from sliding.  

    And when you add the US debt, with a yearly interest payment of one trillion, it’s plain to see the writing on the wall.  
     

    Here’s a really good primer on the situation.

    Did you even realize that this site you're referencing is a cryptocurrency shill site, and that convincing dumb people that the USD is doomed so they lose their money investing in zero-sum ponzis is the whole point?

    Of course you didn't.  

    Morgan Stanley.  You've heard of them?  They just downgraded their outlook for the US dollar, which further illustrates that the Yankee buck is weakening.  I'm not sure why you're so unaware of what's been happening for the last 2+ years, but whatever.  When the US dollar finally tanks due to things like their national debt and the over trillion dollar interest payments, then I guess you'll get what you get when the markets tank too.  At least you could have followed Warren Buffet's lead who started pulling his money out of the DOW last spring and has 140 billion sitting on the sidelines, waiting for something.  But I guess you're smarter than Warren Buffet.

     

    https://watcher.guru/news/brics-morgan-stanley-downgrades-the-u-s-dollar

    Multinational investment bank Morgan Stanley downgraded the outlook for the U.S. dollar from ‘Bullish’ to ‘Neutral’ on Friday. The global bank cited that the Federal Reserve initiating interest rate cuts led to the decline of U.S. Treasury yields. Morgan Stanley’s outlook for the U.S. dollar is now officially ‘Neutral’ and downgraded from its previous stance of ‘Bullish’. The downgrade comes at a time when the BRICS alliance is advancing to uproot the U.S. dollar’s global supremacy.

    The Trump administration separated families, and would not allow asylum seekers to claim asylum at the point of entry. They had to apply from Mexico. That is illegal. Any person who is at a port of entry and claims asylum must, by law, be admitted and to have their claim investigated and processed. That is not only international law, but US law, passed by Congress and up held by the SCOTUS. They cannot be removed until that process is complete.

    For sake of argument, let's say that you are 100% correct in the above.  What you are saying is that a sitting president had the US border handling immigrants illegally.  For what, 3 years?  And no court intervened.  He wasn't arrested for this.  He is now not being prosecuted for this.   It seems a sitting American president can just dictate whatever he wants, whether it's illegal or not, and as long as he has either the Senate or the Congress, he gets away with it?

    Which means that Biden, or any of the previous presidents could theoretically break the law if they wanted to.  Thats a strange reality, I think you are going to have to colour me skeptical on that one.

    Well, you SHOULD BE.

    So you've NOT taken "science classes in college," just as I thought.

     

    I have mentioned those things BEFORE. Sorry you missed that.

    FWIW I have an MSEE. Didn't know you were interested, since "science classes" seem to be a foreign concept to YOU.

    You obviously can't read. What I posted was a pic of the UCSD Library, cause the architecture is unusual and to show I know where it is.

    It's also where I went to read scientific journals; but never attended, nor did I claim that I did.

    IOW, you're very confused.

    Whatever you say, science guy.

    You are just a joke, who has a fantasy about something being wrong with taking "science classes in college."

    Perhaps you're just embarrassed because you DID NOT.

    Ooh, I’m embarrassed, eh?  😝

    Your clumsy language in which you thought you were winning a point by claiming to another poster, that you “took science classes in college”, is the most laughable thing I’ve read in this forum in the over 15 years that I’ve been here.  So thanks for that.

    An actual college student would have mentioned the specific field of study, not termed them “science classes”(as if you were still in grade 9).  And would have mentioned a degree earned, or not mentioned it at all.  

    And in rebuttal to my earlier pointing all this out, you posted a photo of some college to help “prove” you actually attended there!  Priceless!!
