I might be technically wrong using the words "invited guests" but if the Japanese government decided the U.S. was no longer welcome, they would have to leave. I think I am right about the gist of that.

On a technical level that’s true, but Japan would never do that. Never going to happen regardless of who the US President is.

Fauci been wrong more than right. That’s not the definition of an “expert”.

I couldn’t agree more.

Time to try someone else, he isn’t the only person educated in these things.

Well, Fauci said we should reopen the schools, not the Democrats say, we shouldn’t listen to Fauci. He says, we should wear a mask, now we should listen to him, so these people keep moving the goalposts, I’m so confused, we listen to this so called expert or we don’t.

trump took both knees to Xi promising him South China and Taiwan for re-election support.

Allegedly, and there’s no definitive proof that he said that.

Can you imagine what the South China Sea would look like if China was calling all of the shots there?

This definitely a serious prospect, but we won’t know how this will play out, we’ll know more next year if this will come to fruition or not.

China is expanding its empire as the 'west's' various empires fade. The Pacific, Indian and Arctic Ocean regions will see more battles ahead over claims for shipping rights, territory and resources.

You get Democrats in power and that will definitely happen and will greatly expand.

When they have recovered, send the occupiers home

Occupiers? Huh? Anyway, that’ll never happen. I don’t know what, why or what the answer is, but people need to calm down, there should be an investigation and there should be a strict lockdown until further notice, someone dropped the ball here, but liberals jumping on the military or people commenting outside of the military that have no idea shouldn’t speculate. Rational heads always prevail.

so your clients are happy to meet you without you wearing a mask?

Happy, don’t know and don’t care, I don’t wear a mask, but that they need my work, they don’t and won’t say anything.

If you don’t wear mask, sanitise your hands, and social distance, you’re a covidiot and need to read up on cognitive dissonance. Shame this publication will not allow me and thousands more of us to truly speak our minds, the are would be on fire. Stay safe. Keep others safe. Don’t be a selfish idiot.

I totally agree.

You said you are teleworking from home for 15 years so you wouldn't have to wear a mask.

But I have to go out and meet clients, so I do go out as well.

But what about your wife and children, are they wearing masks.

They do, I don’t.

But for most of the military guys on the beach, it was business as usual. Very few with masks and no social distancing that I could see.

I don’t wear a mask and I can’t always social distance in my line of work always, depending here in Japan and we’re all fine. I wouldn’t freak out.

Go back to Canada

Thank you!

The man was funny back in the 90s and he really could make you laugh with his show in Living Color and Ace Ventura, the Mask, but started getting less funnier with the Cable guy and then it went downhill from there. He’s just another loudmouth Hollywood political hack that can’t make good movies anymore so he jumps on the political bandwagon to generate clicks. But I get it, these people need to make money and sensationalism brings in big cash.

I meant, "There's nothing America currently provides that the rest of the world couldn't either do without or produce for itself."

https://voxeu.org/article/understanding-global-role-us-economy

Because of its size and interconnectedness, developments in the US economy are bound to have important effects around the world. The US has the world’s single largest economy, accounting for almost a quarter of global GDP (at market exchange rates), one-fifth of global FDI, and more than a third of stock market capitalisation. It is the most important export destination for one-fifth of countries around the world. The US dollar is the most widely used currency in global trade and financial transactions, and changes in US monetary policy and investor sentiment play a major role in driving global financing conditions (World Bank 2016).

Now that’s “not” to say we don’t need the world, but the world most “definitely” needs us.

Garbage. There's nothing America currently provides that the rest of the world could either do without or produce for itself.

“Money,”just wait if Biden does become President and the economy tanks further(and it will) you guys will be in trouble as well.

“Our principal finding after having interviewed 60 officials on both sides of the Atlantic, is that the single greatest challenge NATO faces is the absence of strong principled American presidential leadership for the first time in its history.

Posted in: Europeans see no quick fix to U.S. ties See in context

I think Europe needs to get its own house in order or disband. Having a common currency but no common eurobond is fundamentally flawed. The fact that the UK underwent the pain of leaving the EU shows what a mess it is. Unfortunately, Biden does not have the ballz to take on China like Trump so a Biden presidency will be very bad in that regard

Bingo!

Posted in: Europeans see no quick fix to U.S. ties See in context

Quite right. It's not as if anyone else in the world really needs the US for anything.

Yeah, you do, you need our money, if you didn’t, world leaders wouldn’t ask us why they should pay more for NATO or have a conniption about the US leadership roles, technology, computers, Apple, Windows, TV, I could go on, but no need to. When the US sneezes everyone catches a cold.

If you all decide to p*** off back to wherever you came from and take your grubby, tainted money with you, good riddance as far as I'm concerned.

You want us to return to England?

I agree, if it’s your loved one, you would never want to give up, never and even if something tragic happened to your child, you still would want to know, you would want to have closure and not having that and growing older and never knowing is the absolute worst for any parent to go through. I’m glad that they don’t give up and glad the police are still looking. Never give up on hope.

As we all do. He is voluntarily wearing an anti-Trump political symbol. A symbol that he himself created. 

That’s humiliation.

But how when he decides to wear it himself? Odd...

Actually Trump never said that!

Exactly!

'Republicans are really fed up': GOP increasingly splits with Trump as his polls drag

Yeah, Yahoo News, so why not Buzzfeed or the WP.

Republicans concerned about re-election will jump ship like rats.

No they won’t. No conservative whether they like Trump or hate him will jump on the Biden bandwagon unless it’s the never Trump fools which no one listens to anyway. No one cares what Goldberg or Frum or Hayes or Krystol says or thinks anymore than the Marxists that pretend they like Biden.

Let me walk you through it. He claimed that wearing a mask was a way to "signal disapproval of him."

Trump also said, you should drink bleach, was he right about that? Lol

That is humiliation.

How? He decided to wear one on his own.

It's not only Europeans who want to see the back of Trump. On the day of his defeat, there will be national holidays world wide - and the biggest ones will be in the U.S.A. 

Until liberals mess everything up and another conservative rescues the nation. So I personally hope that when into his second term European leaders will just have to stomach taking care of themselves and not have one hand in the pocket of the US.

So will his supporters be now following in their Master's Footsteps?

Utter nonsense. Trump is Not the Master of anyone and the good thing about Trump is, he left his followers the option because unlike Democrats and liberals that want to force people how to eat, live and breath, Trump doesn’t do that, so many of us will wear it, have been wearing it and some like me will not. It just depends. My sister lives in Southern California and I hear all the time how a lot of people don’t wear masks even though it’s mandatory. It depends on the person and Cali isn Trump country for sure so.....

As this photo shows, obesity is a big problem in the US and is a major cause of their high death rate from Covid.

It’s not just a problem in the US, but it is a problem, but people will get fatter if they have to stay quarantined and yes, they can workout at home, but it doesn’t work for everyone so expect the obesity rate to go up during these times.

Posted in: Trump wears mask in public for first time during pandemic See in context

Clearly not, because he’s wearing one which means one of three things, none of which you’ll like:

a) he wants to wear one.

b) he doesn’t want to wear one but someone told him to.

c) he was wrong before and has learned from it.

I think it’s more like:

a) If he wears it, the media will pipe down for a little bit at least.

b) Trump doesn’t listen to pretty much anyone, but being the OCD germaphobe he is when he’s in close contact with people he doesn’t know, he’ll wear one.

c) he’s testing the media to see if they’ll still complain and put this to rest or wearing one won’t make a bean or difference which means, he doesn’t feel the need to wear one.

Only time will tell.....

Nah, we're done with that. Not going to further damage the economy over a virus.

Seems like the AP is working overtime to scare people into believing this is it! We are all doomed stay home. And I’m not talking about the Huey Lewis version. But I agree. It’s just mindless empty rhetoric fodder now.
