  1. Imagine the information that’s going to come out. https://www.foxnews.com/world/julian-assange-extradition-approved-british-government
  2. I keep hearing so many people say things would be different if he had of won 2020. From either side without too much bickering let’s say he did win what would be different today in the US? Would global inflation not be hitting the US as bad? From what I’ve seen our gas prices are some of the lowest in the world, but it is true that inflation has hurt a lot of people. If Trump was president is anyone saying this wouldn’t have happened? How about the war in Ukraine? I’ve heard that espoused that Putin would have never invaded if Trump was president. Is that what anyone believes? If so make a case. Stock market diving in 2022 alongside 401ks. Would these be significantly better under Trump with the Feds raising rates leading to the drying up of liquidity in the market? I’m genuinely asking here from all counterpoints while also asking for this to be a discussion for as long as possible without it simply devolving into mudslinging.
  3. More slop from these disgusting people.
  4. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/self-driving-trucks-to-cut-retailer-costs-up-to-30-gatik-ceo-says-201643123.html I posted last year about the cashier who told me the self checkout was no threat to her position. They regularly ran 3-4 cashier stations 18mos ago, with 3 self-check stations. Now there are 1-2 cashiers and 6 self-checks The people who work these jobs are non-college grads, unskilled products of the American educational system who do not understand math well enough to give you your change without using the cash register. The above article is about self-driving trucks. The rich who control the R party, tell the evannie/low IQ Americans that Willie Horton and the beaners are taking their jobs. The D fight for better education. The R fight for our teachers to carry weapons. An educated person can easily see that many, huge numbers of jobs have been lost to automation to increase profits. An uneducated person thinks the factories that closed are actually packed with Cadillac driving black people.

    Jan 6th Hearings

    With the public hearings starting on the 9th, i figured we needed a thread on it. Trump on Trial The Brookings Institution has released a comprehensive guide to this week’s hearings by the January 6 Committee. “The issue of criminality is central to the congressional hearings commencing on June 9, 2022… The report covers key players in the attempt to overturn the election, the known facts regarding their conduct, and the criminal law applicable to their actions.”
  6. https://miamistandard.news/2022/05/18/study-testosterone-treatment-turns-democrat-voters-more-conservative/ No I'm not trying to be an ass but I did find this funny.
  7. https://politicalwire.com/2022/06/01/videos-reveal-gop-plans-to-contest-elections/ “Video recordings of Republican Party operatives meeting with grassroots activists provide an inside look at a multi-pronged strategy to target and potentially overturn votes in Democratic precincts: Install trained recruits as regular poll workers and put them in direct contact with party attorneys,” Politico reports. “The plan, as outlined by a Republican National Committee staffer in Michigan, includes utilizing rules designed to provide political balance among poll workers to install party-trained volunteers prepared to challenge voters at Democratic-majority polling places, developing a website to connect those workers to local lawyers and establishing a network of party-friendly district attorneys who could intervene to block vote counts at certain precincts.” This is what Steve Bannon called “the precinct strategy” late last year. Donald Trump endorsed it. Playbook: “You don’t have to be an expert on election administration to understand the havoc that this attempted partisan takeover of vote-counting and certifying could create.” I honestly don't know what to do when an entire party turns against democracy.
  8. Jon Voight has turned against the gun nuts, saying it is not a political question but a question whether you have a brain or not. Country musicians pulling out of NRA events. Now, Texas legislators, including some Republicans, are calling for the Governor to call a special session to address gun measures. So there are some Republicans, whose common sense got the better of them, speaking out, and it is more than likely that this trend will continue to grow when the next inevitable gun shooting occurs. This means we are getting to the point were the Republican party will no longer be able to ignore this growing problem, and will act to some degree. On the other side of the Republican party, you have the gun nuts who will not give a millimeter on this issue. No matter how small, and no matter how much sense it makes, any legislation that addresses guns to any degree will be met with cries that the world has ended by that group. This will cause an unrepairable fissure between those factions in the Republican party, and as the Republican base gets smaller and more extreme, it would not take much chipping at that fissure to end the party.
  9. https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/20/politics/hillary-clinton-robby-mook-fbi/index.html Democrats believed a lie? Do you still believe a vetted president was an agent of Russia?
  10. I just imagine him rehearsing the speech and repeating to himself, "Don't say Iraq, don't say IRAQ, DON'T SAY IRAQ"
  11. Go to the 7:00 mark to see what Elon says about Jesusantity. I know what Jesus said about the devil. He is a liar and the father of all lies. I guess standing up for people in power to have freedom to tell lies over the number one source of information in America is what makes them love Elon.
  12. https://news.gallup.com/poll/341963/church-membership-falls-below-majority-first-time.aspx WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans' membership in houses of worship continued to decline last year, dropping below 50% for the first time in Gallup's eight-decade trend. In 2020, 47% of Americans said they belonged to a church, synagogue or mosque, down from 50% in 2018 and 70% in 1999. Church membership is strongly correlated with age, as 66% of traditionalists -- U.S. adults born before 1946 -- belong to a church, compared with 58% of baby boomers, 50% of those in Generation X and 36% of millennials. The limited data Gallup has on church membership among the portion of Generation Z that has reached adulthood are so far showing church membership rates similar to those for millennials.
  13. More of this please. Nuclear power needs to not only be saved, but to be increased drastically in the US. Like tenfold.

    Iran / AUKUS

    It seems like the policy of the United States remains to not allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon. Whether this is the right policy, I'm honestly not sold either way. Israel is preparing for war with Iran because the nuclear deal talks are in a critical phase and Blinken said the other day that he is no longer optimistic about a deal getting done (things shifted when Russia pulled out of good faith negotiations, another side affect of this Ukraine War). The United States is going to be in a tough spot. Israel at some point will attack Iran on a massive scale if a deal is not reached. My guess is that the US will support Israel. A few weeks back, in between negotiating with NATO on Ukraine and holding high level meetings with the Europeans, the WH hosted the Israeli Defense Minister and several Israeli Generals for "high stakes" in person talks. Things are about to get even more volatile geopolitically and the Iran situation is in a critical phase, nearing a tipping point. The US needs to increase defense spending and prepare for war on multiple fronts if it comes to our doorstep. The Two Front War Defense policy needs to be restored immediately, and an arms race must begin, and we have to decidedly win it. On AUKUS - the Austrailian / UK / United States Defence Alliance They recently extended their pact to include joint development and technology sharing on hypersonic missiles. The US last week successfully conducted tests of their new hypersonic missile system from an aircraft, per multiple reports. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/apr/05/aukus-pact-extended-to-development-of-hypersonic-weapons Things are ratcheting up globally - get ready for it. This is just the beginning of a much more volatile global security environment than any of us have seen in a long time.
  15. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/27/us/politics/qanon-republicans-trump.html Those are the findings of a poll released today by the Public Religion Research Institute and the Interfaith Youth Core, which found that 15 percent of Americans say they think that the levers of power are controlled by a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles, a core belief of QAnon supporters. The same share said it was true that “American patriots may have to resort to violence” to depose the pedophiles and restore the country’s rightful order. IMO, that's not normal and will not lead to a better America. In 2016, a man armed with an assault rifle shot one human because he believe it was the place Hillary C hid her child sex ring.* In 2022, there are millions more believing obvious untruths. What is the solution? How has our system of government produced a people that 15% of believe outrageous untruths? One of the main battlefronts seems to be our children. And one of our major problems is lack of communication. Either it's a battle or no effective communication. It's our responsibility to help others who believe things blatant lies. Having a populous that believes ridiculous lies makes the country unstable. Just on the one issue of having additional bathrooms for children who can't decide what they are or have decided they are different than their birth certificate. Simple-You go in the one for the sex they assigned you at birth. Not sure if you are like the others in there, have fun peeping at the other kids wee-wee's. I would have loved to get to see the little girls pee pee's when I was in 3rd grade. *https://www.cbsnews.com/news/police-man-with-assault-rifle-dc-comet-pizza-victim-of-fake-sex-trafficking-story/

    Energy thread

    Well, if we've got a Daylight Savings Time thread, might as well have an energy thread. We're going to be here a while. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/03/18/climate/global-energy-crisis-conserve.html This will go over like a fart in church. It's kind of comical to imagine a US leader asking Americans to conserve. Here's the 10 steps I think this would be hard for regular Americans to accept, and I imagine Trumpers to flat out do the opposite of each one if ever publicly suggested....if not storm the Capitol. We've gotta reduce our reliance on foriegn oil! We've got to be energy independent! WAIT, NOT LIKE THAT!!!! It reminds me of the meme of Kaepernick kneeling with the caption, "Black people should protest peacefully...NO NOT LIKE THAT!!!!" Jokes aside, here is the most realistic thing in the NYT article.... Pretty much. Just deposit energy related issues here. It's going to be news for a while.
