  4. I said smendrick, not scmuck.

    your facts aren't a problem, your out of left field suggestion that salon has nothing is. nothing to see here so move along is what you're suggesting, whether or not it's what you said. If your facts are just for burning strawmen, why can't i call you smendrick? it was an article about coverage, and salon was being very fair. You are being a smendrick. Maybe a schmuck too.
     
  5. Well, the article that they put out was giving coverage to a report full of inaccuracies. They didn't point any of them out, they just took the report at face value and published it.

    If your idea of fairness in reporting is the act of reporting every point of view with no regard for fact checking them, then yeah, go to town with it. Put please don't call me names when I point out that the thing that you are peddling is full of errors. I'm a sensitive person you know.
     
  6. He's currently boasting about the size of the hurricane on twitter as if it's something he controls.

    Meanwhile he's used a natural disaster to pardon a horrific human being, promote another horrific human beings book, rant about Mexico and the wall and fully try and implement the LGBT ban in the military.

    Who voted for him on here? Kill yourselves.
     
  7. yeah but hes triggering libs!




    this country is embarassing
     
  8. What LGBT ban?
     
  9. probably means the trans ban he announced suddenly and without discussing it with anyone in the military or on his staff (except perhaps his chief propaganda officer) to distract from the manafort raid which he thought would be all over the news
     
  10. Trump’s business sought deal on a Trump Tower in Moscow while he ran for president

    As part of the discussions, a Russian-born real estate developer urged Trump to come to Moscow to tout the proposal and suggested that he could get President Vladimir Putin to say “great things” about Trump, according to several people who have been briefed on his correspondence.



    Trump Associate Boasted That Moscow Business Deal ‘Will Get Donald Elected’

    A business associate of President Trump promised in 2015 to engineer a real estate deal with the aid of the president of Russia, Vladimir V. Putin, that he said would help Mr. Trump win the presidency.

    The emails show that, from the earliest months of Mr. Trump’s campaign, some of his associates viewed close ties with Moscow as a political advantage. Those ties are now under investigation by the Justice Department and multiple congressional committees.




    Trump’s Real-Estate Ambitions in Moscow

    Many wondered why Trump, while running for the Presidential nomination of the anti-Russia Republican Party, was being so obsequious toward the former head of the K.G.B., who has a long record of human-rights abuses.

    Perhaps we now have a clue. On October 28, 2015, about two weeks after that interview, Trump signed a letter of intent to build a Trump-branded building in Moscow, according to the Washington Post.
     
  11. Just cuz he wanted to collude doesnt mean he did successfully!

    the past deflections:

    there was no contact

    if there was contact, it was about nothing

    everyone has contacts with foreign rivals during elections
     
  12. Russian firm tied to pro-Kremlin propaganda advertised on Facebook during election

    Representatives of Facebook told congressional investigators Wednesday that the social network has discovered that it sold ads during the U.S. presidential campaign to a shadowy Russian company seeking to target voters, according to several people familiar with the company’s findings.

    Facebook teams then discovered 470 suspicious and likely fraudulent Facebook accounts and pages that it believes operated out of Russia, had links to the company and were involved in promoting the ads.

    A Facebook official said “there is evidence that some of the accounts are linked to a troll farm in St. Petersburg, referred to as the Internet Research Agency, though we have no way to independently confirm.” The official declined to release any of the ads it traced to Russian companies or entities.

    Clint Watts, a former FBI agent who has studied Russian online influence campaigns, said Wednesday that Facebook’s report served as “validation” for findings by him and his researchers, who he said had spotted what they believed to be Russians posing as Americans to press political messages on Facebook as early as 2015.
     
  13. absolutely they wanted/want social unrest, and still do it in europe as well

    they also wanted trump

    they also hated hillary

    wait...its weird that this is the only story you believe lol no its not
     
  14. Kind of makes sense. I don't know if antifa is new in the US, but here they've been jobless communist/extreme-socialist scum for decades already. If there's a protest that even smells a little bit right wing (ie pegida not that long ago), you can be ~110% sure they'll plant a bomb ór will show up to fight. What we've seen in Hamburg earlier this year is another great example of how lovely those idiots are. If you can handle them better than we do, please take them.
     
  15. Never heard of Pegida, had to google them, and holy shit "a little bit right wing"? Aren't you being shy with your description there? They seem deeply to the right.

    I'm not surprised that homeless bums showed up to protest them. They might not have the energy to get a job, but they do have the energy (or moral inclination, I don't know) to protest some backwards ultra-nationalists with racial supremacy bends.

    Probably even my 92 year old grandma would feel compelled to roll her wheelchair over there and firebomb them.
     
  16. Pegida is primarily anti terrorism and has no backing of political parties for as far as I'm aware, but I could be mistaken. I mostly see dissatisfied older people in those protests. And then antifa shows up with bombs, smoke grenades and boxing rings and it's back to the bus time. The headlines in the press will be Pegida march very grim and violent while none of us picked fights. We're also not against other nationalities, we just want terrorists to stop ruining our shit and stop sharia from undermining the laws we have established in a democracy. You may tag us as you please of course :)

  17. there was a good NYT piece on fake news in Iowa, and how it got a whole town riled up, followed by national news and russian incited assemblies (posing as americans of course) that shows how it works. Pose as antifa, get them riled up, pose as KKK, get them riled up, make up fake news/fan fiction based on tiny grains of truth and watch them fight.

    its a good strategy, plays to humanitys tendency to tribalism

    podcast episode of The Daily from yesterday sums it up pretty well with audio clips. crazy how fast people worried about terrorists become terrorists out of fear
     
  18. Good to know you guys are stopping terrorists from running the government and sharia law to be implemented.

    Australia has a massive problems with spiders. My group managed to remove the arachnids from office and we also stopped spider laws from being enacted. People told we were crazy and that there was no risk of spider seizing power just because they are here, but they are all crazy, crazy I say!
     
  19. White House launches probe of private email accounts

    The effort began this week after POLITICO reported that both Jared Kushner and a number of other senior White House officials used private email accounts throughout the year to conduct government business.


    Oh man, Hilary is so corrupt for using private email accounts! Trump is right about this issue, he should appoint a special prosecutor to put his daughter and son-in-law behind bars!
     
  20. That was in reference to her having classified and top secret information in her e-mails, just saying, fam.
     
  21. If disturbing legally arranged protests with violent acts is your forté, I don't think we'll be able to find common grounds for a debate.
     
  22. who isnt anti terrorism?
    besides literal terrorists

    you wont find me defending antifa. using violence against peaceful protestors in an effort to prevent violence is laughable. fascist ideas fail on their own. if these people have these ideas, let them express them. the way you figure out if your ideas make sense if you let them butt up against the counters.
