Never forget 9-11 but we sure like to forget atrocities we’ve committed, like dropping the A-bomb and torture etc.
I know they did at the end of the cold war, but now?
They see mass shootings, destruction from mass protests, bridges that fall down, unaffordable housing costs, unaffordable healthcare and healthcare bankruptcies, the decline of science and education, and trillions spent invading and bombing the rest of the world rather than US citizens.

After US strike forces leave an area like the East Sea, Taiwan Straits, South China Sea, etc., in the past I’ve noticed this pattern in the Chinese theater. As far as the Chinese operating near the US, I only recall one specific instance where they test-launched an ICBM from a submarine whose contrail was observable from some place…[Read more]
Just fine as long as it’s done by the right side. Primaries or national elections – You can tell it’s approved by the number of indictments.
I’ve seen here that Biden really won by a razor-thin margin of 48,000 votes. But then, if the media really did cover the campaign, I doubt Biden would have even been nominated –
Well at 6 PM EST time you start a new thread in this forum (Daily posts) with the question. Then you respond when people answer. That’s it.

Ukraine acts as the gatekeeper in the transfer of natural gas from Russia to Europe, but the completion of Nord Stream 2 will enable Russia to go through the Baltic Sea, bypassing Ukrainian land and the…[Read more]
calls Zelensky and the government in Kyiv stupid – but that’s small sample size.
And I don’t know how he can come out of it looking good. Donbass being allowed to have their own elections would not go over well in Kyiv, and there (should) be no way for Ukraine to become a NATO member with an unresolved conflict.
The Minsk protocol says items…[Read more]
The troops are withdrawing, but the military equipment is not, and we’ll see how Zelensky responds. His increased troops are still at the border with Donbass, and he’s recently asked for Russia to be removed from the international banking system SWIFT and for a meeting with Putin in the war zone in Donbass.
Putin has yet to respond, though you…[Read more]
She lives in central Ukraine, was raised in the Soviet Union, speaks Russian and Ukrainian, and says she’d be just as happy if where she lives was part of Russia.
She’d just like a decent economy with the ability to get a decent job which is very hard to do in Ukraine since 2014. It may be tied to the conflict in eastern Ukraine and the…[Read more]

Good on them. That’s why when I was reading through this, I thought it was the publisher just not printing them any more. So they are just making it out-of-print, which is not the same as banning the book.
I mean, seriously, they didn’t need to make such fanfare about it, and just stop printing and no one would have commented on it…[Read more]

Donors are more important than voters to the Democratic Party of today – and the Democratic Party since at least the 1990s.

Please explain what is the “soul of out country”?
And that didn’t say who the votes were for – there were candidates that were official write-in candidates, like Mark Charles.
That may be available from the Oregon Secretary of State later.

He’s deteriorated over the course of his campaign, and with that he had only a light schedule. What a betrayal of trust for the establishment to have backed him.
I just saw a video where Joe Biden says he’s going to raise taxes on billionaires and ‘trillionaires’. He did correct himself, though, and said ‘mult…

A Twitter competitor could call itself “Twaddle”. When you post, it’s a “Tweedle”. If people reply to that your post gets referred to as a “Tweedle Dee”, and the reply a “Tweedle Dum”.
So when people say “Did you see Jimmy Dore’s Tweedle Dum?” you know he was replying to someone.
For Facebook a competitor could call itself Vogueing. It’s…[Read more]

And for freezing her assets. Expensive lawyers start worrying about getting paid when the government can freeze every last dime.
And the whole “fleeing felon” look could spark some people into rolling on Maxwell, instead of taking their chances on staying mute.
