Posted in: Japan scrambles to deny reports that Olympics cancelation possible See in context

This is the process by which the Olympics get canceled and everyone saves face, but the public doesn't get their money back.

First the politicians will show a unified "The Olympics will go on. There are no discussions regarding cancelling the Olympics."

Then, one or two politicians or J-IOC members will make a generally rebuffed "gaffe" that other options should be examined.

Followed, by the higher ups stating that the possibility of cancellation is being discussed, regrettably.

Lastly, Koike states "due to the circumstances, regrettably..."

Posted in: Trump plans to depart Washington the morning of Inauguration Day See in context

Wow, you have fallen this far. To compare Trump rallies as a measure of his success as a President and as a human being.

Hopefully, Biden's inauguration is low key and boring as hell. I hope the next 4, 8, 12 years are as boring as hell, free of scandals and race baiting that so dominated the past 4 years.

The voters spoke and 7 million more said enough with the Idiocracy rallies, it is time for the petulant child to go down for his nap.

Burning Bush

Trump's rallies at stadiums are cheerful, peaceful and cordial. Everybody basically cheers and has a good time.

The only security needed are the guys that keep adoring fans at a safe distance from the podium.

Meanwhile, Biden's inauguration will have to be a fortress.

Which leader is truly more popular?

Thank you for providing the information which contradicts your above points.

Whites constitute over 70% of the population compared to 13% blacks. Now, bearing that in mind, try again.

As of the June 22 update, the Washington Post’s database of fatal police shootings showed 14 unarmed Black victims and 25 unarmed white victims in 2019

All of Trump's concession speeches were followed with statements that the election was stolen. So, he does nothing to defuse the situation, and in fact, keeps throwing more gasoline onto it. His Tweet prior to the January 6th EC certification was "'Be There. Will Be Wild!':". This was intentional in order to get the base riled up and we all know what happened as a result of this.

NOMINATION

He already conceded and said he would have a smooth transition of power. Why do you choose to ignore this? He also condemned the riots and he called the National Guard. You hate him that you only choose to comment negativity I guess and ignore evidence.

Systematic oppression and extrajudicial execution by police upon minorities vs. "My politician didn't win the election...wah wah wah". The two are not comparable.

Reckless

With more than a year of BLM civil disobedience, violence and occupying parts of major cities such as Portland and San Francisco, finally the silent majority has gotten tired of it.

Many years of gaslighting have culminated in this. Trump needs to tell his supporters to leave the area. There is no way to defend the attack on the Capitol unless you are seeking an authoritarian America.

Posted in: Cruz leads Republican drive to object to Biden's win See in context

The apocryphal rallying of the Trump base, pushing for protests and the blocking of politicians from being able to attend the January 6th certification seems like an attempt to create an incident in DC. Trump really has nothing more to lose. Unfortunately, expecting the calls from Trump’s lawyer and supporters for violence and execution of opposition to increase.

Or....maybe because the courts refuse to hear or consider the evidence does mean there isn't any.

How about you provide some proof, as concrete proof has been long considered the gold standard in supporting a conclusion especially in legal matters.

Just because the courts refuse to hear or consider the evidence does not mean there isn't any. There is lots of evidence, and I feel sorry for those who think there isn't.

Not sure where you are getting this "Don't worry it's just a joke, don't worry about it" take on it. You've been proven wrong and a major proponent of false information here and elsewhere before. Even so, what you state is not true of all the people who have attached themselves to QAnon.

Just pointing out that these QAnon folks are just screwing around and getting the media to take them seriously. It is just like the last election because the media has taken similar claims from two elections in a row seriously. I doubt the media will push these claims to Biden’s impeachment though.

J-QAnon basing its foundation on maintaining a racial status quo....not a good look.

Yasushi Watanabe said that Trump looks dependable to some people in Japan at a time "when the notion of Japanese being homogeneous is no longer shared and the term jokyu kokumin (privileged citizens) has come into existence as a target of hatred."

Burning Bush.......

I know you already made yourself look somewhat foolish today and you are unlikely/unable to provide a specific answer to the following questions, but just want to ask a Trump - GOP vacillating supporter for simple clarifications to a couple of questions.

Whom do you support now with regards to the $2000 payment? Trump? The GOP? Democrats?

Are you in favor of socialism for the masses, when massive government hand-outs have been usually reserved for the larger corporations, banks or Wall Street?

Some people don't like it when they have "that complicated science stuff" thrown in their face, especially on the Internet.

So much easier to just click "Dislike" than actually try to do some "re-surch". An NO, that usually doesn't include a "I watched a YouTube video".

Posted in: Pfizer files request for COVID-19 vaccine approval in Japan See in context

If (Because) extensive regulatory review is required for a vaccine or any medicine to receive the ok for use, patent term extensions are possible (usually 5 years, but can vary). So the patent can last 25 years (20 + the 5 year PTE) from the initial filing date of the application (this can also vary among countries but I believe is the same regardless of the filing route).

Virusrex

vaccines patents last only 10 years, and any competent company has to register as soon as the technology to produce it is developed (before the pre-clinical trials), if this were true nobody would make any new vaccine, since by the time billions of dollars were invested in the clinical trials anybody could make it without paying anything.

You and your crew make a lot of strange predictions (bordering on fantasies) that never seem to pan out...such as Covid being over by summer, but if you have magical evidence of mass fraud that will prove that Trump won, we'll listen......nope..didn't think so. Supreme Court won't listen either and it's loaded with Trump appointees. No one on the SP wants to be forever tied to this sinking ship. You only have a few more days to continue with the forlorn hope that someone will listen and hand down a judgment in your favor....

Posted in: Trump 'ashamed' to have endorsed Republican Georgia governor See in context

As stated before...

SC isn't going to take up Trump's hail mary. They already turned down the request to expedite hearing on a petition for a writ of certiorari on ballots mailed but not received on election day and deadlocked on overturning the Pennsylvania lower court ruling. Roberts isn't willing to have the SC look political regardless of the Republican skew of its members so don't expect them and Coney Barrett to come through for Trump in the end. She already skipped out on ruling on the above-mentioned Pennsylvania case, so she's clearly thinking of her next 20-30 years on the court and not Trump's last 50 days.

Hilarious that people will defend a Tweet that Biden can “only enter the White House as President if he can prove that his ridiculous ‘80,000,000 votes’ were not fraudulently or illegally obtained,”

Fortunately, the courts still believe that the burden of proof falls upon those making the accusations and since Trump and his cronies have no proof (or at best refuse to put the "proof" on display), this era of stupidity ends or at least isn't in charge of much in a few weeks.

Posted in: Biden wants Congress to pass virus aid in lame-duck session See in context

Seriously splitting hairs at this point. Eventually you will have to come to some sort of acceptance regarding this election. Then, you can start to complain about everything that Biden does/doesn't do, just like Republicans did during the Clinton and Obama eras, and just like the Democrats did during W and Trump.

I get it that people attach more of their own personal identity and feeling of self-worth to the fortunes of their political candidate or tribe of choice today, but it's going to be a long 4...8....??? years unless the Republicans do some soul searching and understand the directions in which the US is changing. Each election does not need to be a revenge game.

I understand that this situation feels like a last gasp for certain aspects of the Republican party or tribes that have attached themselves thereto. Maybe the Republican party can shed those tribes that drive others away and develop more inclusive policies that allow more peoples to thrive.

Biden is not president-elect, he did not win the election. Just because the MSM calls him the winner does not make it true.
