Posted in: Putin finalises 'annexation' in Ukraine even as troops flee front See in context

Good video that highlights a couple of truths....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rn-Rlq477S0&ab_channel=YourAdvocateAlliance%28YAA%29

The war has turned into a debacle for Putin and Russia....every goal he set out to achieve has failed, and in fact, the opposite has occurred...

Ukraine didn't collapse in seven days - it's now day 225 and Russia is losing territory as its troops flee in disarray and Ukraine is re-capturing it...

The once-feared Russia Army has been shown to be wholly incompetent with shoddy, defective equipment...

Instead of being fragmented, NATO has been re energized and has in fact grown, with the addition of over 1 million new troops from Norway and Sweden...

Russia's energy blackmail of Europe has failed - one of the last leverages Putin had to play...

As a result, Russia is now much more dangerous - because it is losing on every level...and will not act like a "normal" country....

As Putin throws his untrained mobilized reserves in battle, and they get slaughtered, he has to do something to turn the tide, and lessen European support to Ukraine. This could be more overt cyber attacks against European critical infrastructure and financial institutions or a false flag attack within Russia to blame on NATO.

We need to be extra-vigilant as a more humiliated and desperate Putin tries to save face....

Posted in: Views on U.S. bases shift in Okinawa See in context

Talk to anyone under 40 in Okinawa and they'll tell you very rationally they understand why the US bases are there and the benefits that accrue from them - most importantly jobs. There are 8,984 local national positions at US facilities on Okinawa - most paying more than jobs off-base.

The older folks and their senior politicians rant against the bases, but they do all they can to keep them there - and to block any meaningful reductions that would so benefit the local populace...

Futenma would have been closed by now, with all that land returned for local use; schools, universities, retail...but nope, the anti-base pols and their vested interests fought the transfer at every turn - so Futenma remains open...

And the answer is simple - two reasons; 1) they have no other issue to campaign on - reduce the bases, and they would be forced to tell the local people how they would increase jobs, entice manufacturing and R&D, reduce out of wedlock births and alcohol-related traffic accidents (Okinawa leads all prefectures in both)....and 2) when Futenma is returned, it is now the responsibility of the local government to develop it - not an easy job and the longer it sits empty the more the local people get angry. The anti-base pols would prefer to take the easy way out...let it remain in US hands...

Craven? You bet, but we are talking about politicians . One day the local people will see through this ruse and elect leaders that will finish the construction at Camp Schwab and transfer the assets from Futenma - then the base will be returned...and the military footprint decreased...a win for all...

It just keeps getting worse for The Donald....

*Former President Donald Trump personally packed a trove of documents** returned to the National Archives in January, while keeping many records back, The Washington Post reported.*

*Trump also instructed a lawyer to say all the documents sought by the records agency had been returned**, the paper reported. It said he refused to do as he could not be sure it was true.*

https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-personally-packed-stash-documents-120026586.html

The DOJ already had plenty of evidence - this just seals it....

It puts Trump's hands directly packing his cartons of stolen TS/SCI and solidifies the obstruction of justice charge by him telling his lawyer to lie...

This lawyer was smart enough to refuse - the one that put in writing in June that "there is no longer any classified at Lar-A-Lago" and then the FBI found boxes full in August is hosed....just like his client...

ROFL..

“So what do you think of the Oath Keepers?”

”Gas prices”

Exactly - it's like the movie Ground Hog Day...

On one message, Rhodes urged his followers to get their “get your gear squared away" and be “ready to fight.” What do you think about that?

But The Border....

In another — sent to a group called “FOS” or "Friends of Stone" that included Trump ally Roger Stone — Rhodes urged his fellow Oath Keepers to think of the ways early Americans had resisted the British. “We are now where the founders were in March, 1775,” he wrote. He implored them to “step up and push Trump to finally take decisive action." Isn't this domestic terrorism?

But Homelessness...

“The final defense is us and our rifles,” Rhodes wrote to the group. “Trump has one last chance, right now, to stand. But he will need us and our rifles too.” Isn't this a call for an insurrection?

But Hunter...

Exactly - they are re-posting and parroting Trump's Big Lie, attempting to destroy the legitimacy of our democracy - thanks for finally agreeing with me....

Informative article. no such thing as Russian disinformation and the Chinese "influence" is not attempting to have any desired outcome. So basically, nothing going on as they dont even have a preferred winner nor are they creating any content.

Apologizing for and appeasing the Russians and the Chinese - a core value of MAGA-world....

Chinese and Russian officials and state media have historically rejected U.S. allegations of election meddling and pointed in turn to American influence efforts in other countries.

exactly.

Posted in: DeSantis shifts from provocateur to crisis manager after Ian See in context

DeSantis' embrace of federal help is a shift from his early days as a congressman, when he voted against a federal relief package for New York and New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy. That drew criticism this week from some New York-area officials and other Democrats who described the turnaround as a move from cruel to hypocritical.

DeSantis is nothing but a craven political hypocrite....

He voted against any federal money for other states when they were struck by major storms - saying it was a waste of funds.... Now, he's completely flipped and is welcoming federal help when he's Governor....

And when there's no emergency, he does nothing but engage in pure political theater designed to manipulate and fool the MAGA-masses. Then when the hurricane hits, he turns all nice and rational...

He's as big a swindler and fraud as his fellow Floridian at Mar-A-Lago....

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday he will “proudly support” legislation to overhaul rules for certifying presidential elections, bolstering a bipartisan effort to revise a 19th century law and avoid another Jan 6 insurrection.

The bill is all about “Democratic rage” at Trump, Cruz said. Cruz was the lone dissenter.

What do quotation marks around words preceded by the words that someone “uttered” something mean then?

It means they were said or directly associated with that person - again, I never said "quoted" - those were your words and they were wrong....

they are called quotation marks got a reason and have a very specific purpose. Hint: to quote someone, indicating exactly what they said.

Or were said to have said....

Open a grammar book - and get educated...

Not to my knowledge.

Good. Trump believes all of them - glad you disagree with him. Got one wrong though - the last one is obviously true....

What is also not true is that PT Barnum uttered the words you falsely quoted him saying.

They were associated with him - I never said "quoted" - stop with the misinformation...

when confronted your only excuse is that other people also falsely associate him with those words. When you didn’t say “associated with” but rather direct quoted him falsely.

Wrong.

thats why no one (except liberals) believe liberal fact checks.

Conspiracy theories exist because those that lack maturity or of lower education are unable to reason, assess, and judge using science or other empirical methods...

They have to make sense of their world, so they latch on to crazy, far-out fairy tales; for example...

Horse dewormer cures COVID...

Windmills cause cancer...

JFK Jr is alive and helping rid the country of pedophiles stealing the blood of children in the back of pizza parlors...

Hugo Chavez, dead nine years, stole the 2020 election...

It's their escape from reality...an alternate reality increasing being called MAGA-world...

And it goes without saying that the propagators of these kooky theories are mere con-artists bilking and fleecing their believers out of their money...

The costs of acting as if the 2020 election were rigged are no doubt greater than those for acting as if the floor is lava. The costs of acting as if the 2020 election were rigged led to millions of dollars worth of damage to the Capitol building, led to hundreds of arrests for Capitol rioters, led to multiple deaths and imperiled American democracy.

BINGO! And we know who is responsible...

And what do we see at Trump's most recent rallies? QAnon music, one finger salutes, "Q" banners and T shirts...

It's clear that when they lose in free and fair elections, the Repub party refuses to gracefully concede, and instead spreads deceitful lies and hatches beyond kooky conspiracy theories...a clear attempt to destroy our democracy...

Hugo Chavez, dead for nine years, stole 2020 votes?

On Thursday, Powell declared that she had found the real villains behind Trump’s election defeat: billionaire Soros and deceased Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. In Powell’s telling, Chavez had been pulling the strings on American voting software this whole time.

Posted in: Texas vow to 'eliminate all rapists' rings hollow at clinics See in context

When Texas' new abortion law made no exceptions in cases of rape, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott defended it with an assurance: Texas would get to work eliminating rapes.

Reporter: Gov Abbott, could you please explain to us how you intend to "eliminate rape" in Texas?

Abbott: Yes indeed, well, I've been giving that subject a lot of thought....in fact, that's how I'm going to eliminate rape. Just like our great former-President....oops....I mean current President...I'm going to "think" it to be true, and it will magically happen...

Reporter: Uhhh....do you really mean that?

Abbott: Of course not, but all my gullible far-right supporters out there will...which is all that matters...they'll believe anything I say.... Tomorrow I'm going to announce the world is flat...just like Texas...watch how much money I can raise off that...

Posted in: Texas vow to 'eliminate all rapists' rings hollow at clinics See in context

This whole "we'll eliminate rape" thing was a huge disaster for Abbott - and just another example why Texans are tired of his theatrics instead of governing...

Texas' electrical grid is no better than Kabul's, yet Abbott ignores that and engages in busing legal migrants and taking rights away from women...

Women, irrespective of their politics, don't like it when men tell them they have no control over their own bodies - or that Big Repub Government is forcing them into motherhood...just look at Kansas...

Smart Repubs know that - and are scrubbing their websites of their radical abortion views, trying to hide them. Everyone excerpt Loony Lindsey who is a gift that keeps on giving for the Dems. Graham:

May 3rd: “Every state will decide if abortion is legal and on what terms, the most constitutionally sound way of dealing with this issue.”

Jun 26th: “All of us in the conservative world have believed that there’s nothing in the Constitution giving the federal government the right to regulate abortion.”

Sep 13th: “This is not a states’ rights issue. This is a human right issue,” Graham said. “So, no matter what California or Maryland will do … I am going to advocate a national minimum standard.”

So Lindsey went from "it's a state's right' and the "federal government should stay out of it to it's NOT a state right and the federal government SHOULD regulate abortion...

What a blatant liar and flip-flopper - you can't believe one thing that comes out of Lindsey's mouth - he'll say the opposite the next day...

But I'm glad he did - he just showed what liars and how extreme and radical the Repubs are - and that they're coming after all sorts of rights and freedoms if they gain power - which thanks to Lindsey (and Trump), won't be happening in Nov...

Despite the opinion’s ubiquitous use of the word migrants, the fact remains these people crossed the border illegally; and therefore, the are illegal aliens. That’s important, I think. I believe that’s part of the democrats’ propaganda.

BS. They presented themselves to Immigrations and requested asylum - they were processed by Immigrations and were awaiting their final hearing. Just more anti-immigrant hate....

But I am still convinced the republicans are the better party. 

Agree - better at lying, manipulating their low-intellect voters, and much better at fascism...

*Just can't get it thru your head these folks were LEGAL migrant asylum seekers *

I think it’s the other way around.

So? Doesn't change the fact that under US law, asylum seekers are not illegal. Your opinion (incorrect) just just verifies your anti-immigrant, racist bias...

*Ditto - once again, you're wrong, they weren't illegal...*

I’m not wrong

You're 100% wrong....

No matter how much you want to believe it, these folks weren't illegal -

You can believe that if you wish, I don’t
