Posted in: Witness: Taliban hang dead body in Afghan city's main square See in context

Just remember, this is the group that Trump negotiated with and "trusted" while at the same time sidelining and excluding our 20-year Afghan government partners...

He surrendered to the Taliban in Feb 2020, gave them everything they wanted, and then to top it off forced the Afghan government that he excluded to release 5K Taliban ISIS, and Al Qaeda prisoners....who then started planning their eventual takeover...

Trump should have flown to Kabul in Aug, welcomed them and shook their hand as they entered the city - given he made it all possible...

This is all about each country's self interest...

Russia is worried about Islamic extremism in Chechnya, Dagestan, and its other Muslim regions...

China is worried about Islamic extremism in Xinjiang, Gansu, and it Muslim regions...

Pakistan is worried about instability on its border that deflects from its attention on India...

That being said don't trust anything that comes out of Lavrov's mouth - he's a Putin flunky that wants to do anything he can to harm and destabilize the West...

Posted in: Trump sues niece, New York Times over Pulitzer-winning tax story See in context

Ok....Trump is suing his niece for helping to release his tax returns - something he promised to do at least 20 times....like this;

2013: Trump started saying this in January, telling Fox News that releasing the returns is a "great thing" because it lets a person prove "you've been successful, and that you've made a lot of money." "I actually think it's a positive," he said.

2014: "If I decide to run for office, I'll produce my tax returns, absolutely. And I would love to do that"

2015: Months before announcing his presidential candidacy, Trump assured that he'd release the returns as part of his proof that he "would make money for our country."

2016: Trump said he and his campaign were "working on" getting the returns out, but it was hard because it "is not, like a normal tax return."

And his lawyers think he can win this? Must be still listening to Crazy Rudy...

Next week: Trump is going to sue himself for not getting the border wall built...

Posted in: Trump sues niece, New York Times over Pulitzer-winning tax story See in context

After all his lawyers have either bailed on him or have been disbarred and in jail, Trump must be really scraping the bottom of the barrel....

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in New York, alleges that the Times participated in an “insidious plot” with Mary Trump to obtain his private tax files, which were then used in its bombshell reporting about his financial history, The Daily Beast reported.

*“But on page one, it says, “The defendants’ actions were motivated by a personal vendetta and their desire to gain fame, notoriety, acclaim and a financial windfall and were further intended to advance their political agenda,” Maddow said. “Then it says this: *‘The brazenness of the defendants’ actions cannot be understated.’”

https://news.yahoo.com/msnbc-hosts-crack-over-error-065806463.html

Get it? They used understated when they meant overstated....

Definitely Trump U law grads...

I hope he's not using them for the 27 criminal investigations and civil suits he's already facing. Wait, on second thought I hope he does...

Anyone else see another typical weak Trump deflection attempt as Woodward's and Costa's new book rolls out with new bombshells of Trump's perfidy.....

What shocked me was that Trump's team knew all along that the "rigged" story regarding Dominion voting machines was all a big lie....

https://news.yahoo.com/memo-reveals-trump-campaign-knew-211645444.html

Talk about winning your suit? That's the smoking gun in Dominion's suit against Giuliani, Powell, OANN, Newsmaxx, etc.. Fox was smart enough to fire Lou Dobbs when he went rogue and now refuses to let any of its hosts or guests mention Dominion.

And Trump is next since he continues to spread the Big Lie...

the buck stops here!

Yet it doesnt, and no one on the left calls it out when it is falsely and incessantly repeated as if true.

Amazing, the Trump supporters since Jan 18th 2021...."The buck stops with the President!".....

Yet for the previous 4 years it was the exact opposite;

"President Donald Trump on Friday deflected blame for his administration’s lagging ability to test Americans for the coronavirus outbreak, insisting instead — without offering evidence — that fault lies with his predecessor, Barack Obama. “I don't take responsibility at all,” Trump said defiantly, pointing to an unspecified “set of circumstances” and “rules, regulations and specifications from a different time.”*

And we know what they think of Trump's responsibility for the Jan 6th insurrection...which he incited and "happened on his watch".....

One flip after another flop...

*That's it? A weak "But What About"? Why did Trump release all those 5K terrorists who then assisted in the takeover?*

Trump is not the President. What Trump “did” in the past has nothing to do with the decisions that the current President made. I get it why you guys do this, but sadly, and going by this guys words “the buck stops with me as President” and for the first time in his political life, he’s absolutely right. Biden made this, he owns it.

Uh-huh....once again, why did he release the 5K terrorist prisoners who then assisted the takeover?

“so that no president of whatever party can ever assume that he or she has the power to usurp the power of the other branches of government.”

kinda like when the Supreme Court tells you its unconstitutional to continue an eviction moratorium and you do it anyway from the executive branch?

Or when legislatively you cant pass a vaccine mandate so you use OHSA policy instead?

Or when you drone strike children without Congressional approval to act?

Or lose an election but fail to take like a man, and whine, cry, and lie about it - fabricating a utterly false narrative that the election was stolen - and causing an insurrection at the Capitol...

And continuing to propagate that lie even when you and your entire team knew it was false....

Newly released court documents show that the Trump campaign knew its allegations against Dominion Voting Systems were baseless within weeks of the 2020 election. The New York Times reports that the former president’s campaign drafted an internal memo on November 19 that debunked election conspiracy theories involving Dominion and its voting machines. And yet, Trump’s legal team continued to pedal the false allegations against Dominion.

And he still pedals them today - because you can't fleece the flock unless they're angry....

Posted in: China's Xi: Handle disputes with 'dialogue and cooperation' See in context

Facing growing tensions with the United States, Chinese leader Xi Jinping reiterated his nation's longtime policy of multilateralism on Tuesday, telling world leaders at the United Nations that disputes among countries “need to be handled through dialogue and cooperation."

OK Mr Xi, how about complying with the decision of this multilateral organization?

China has said it will not accept a ruling against it in a key international legal case over strategic reefs and atolls that Beijing claims would give it control over disputed waters of the South China Sea. The judgment by an international tribunal in The Hague came down overwhelmingly in favour of claims by the Philippines

The Chinese president, Xi Jinping, said China’s “territorial sovereignty and marine rights” in the seas would not be affected by the ruling, which declared large areas of the sea to be neutral international waters or the exclusive economic zones of other countries.

What was Obama’s excuse to release the Gitmo-5 some of the most violent Taliban fighters in exchange for an American deserter? Don’t think the trade-off was worth it. He was warned, but he didn’t care, not surprised.

wouldnt you also have intellectual curiosity to wonder why highly vaccinated states still having increasing COVID, not decreasing.

that wouldnt make sense to me, if vaccination makes it less likely for one to get COVID.

My, my - you clearly disagree with this guy....what do you think of him spreading misinformation and urging his supporters to take this defective and dangerous vaccine? Aren't you outraged?

I would recommend it," Mr Trump said during an interview on Fox News Primetime on Tuesday. "I would recommend it to a lot of people that don't want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly." He added: **"It's a great vaccine*, it's a safe vaccine and it's something that works.

COVID? Didn't it vanish in April 2020? Like a miracle, when the spring comes? That's what I was told.

The whole thing was a democratic hoax that would disappear after the election. At least, that's what the republicans told us, they weren't lying were they?

Aren't you up on the latest news from Newsmaxx and OANN? COVID DID disappear in April 2020 - all due to the inspired efforts of that one and only stable genius, Trump the Imperious....

Then the election was stolen by Hunter, Hugo Chavez, Elvis, and The Kraken, and those evil Dems unleashed the Delta variant on us, all in an attempt to get everyone to take the vaccine which has Dem mind control chips in it that make us rational, treat women with respect, and have a preference for democracy over authoritarianism....

That there vaccine also shrinks our privates and makes all us conservatives sterile so the Dems can bring in more immigrants and take over our country...

The reason that so-called conservatives and members of the far-right are anti-science and scorn the vaccine is because of only one thing - money....

The far-right media hate machine and their complicit Repub politicians have to keep their base in a constant state of grievance and anger. Don't listen to those epidemiologists and scientists - only listen, watch, and buy books and premium memberships from us. We'll tell you the truth - and the truth is "they" are trying to implant mind control chips in you with the vaccine, that COVID actually comes from 5G network towers, and the earth is really flat...

And those already weak of mind revel in their grievance, victim-hood, and kooky conspiracy theories inside the far-right bubble...

That is until they wake up in the ICU with a ventilator shoved down their throat....

It's not a surprise that the job with the highest mortality rate in the US today is a conservative, anti-vax radio talk-show host...

In recent weeks, at least 7 different anti-vaccine and anti-mask conservative activists have ultimately died in hospital settings from COVID-19 and its complications. The men were radio hosts Bob Enyart, Phil Valentine, Marc Bernier and Dick Farrel, along with former CIA officer/conspiracy theorist Robert David Steele, South Carolina GOP leader Pressley Stutts, and anti-vaccine activist Caleb Wallace. All had used their platforms to push various bits of misinformation about the virus, masks and the vaccines, and all were ultimately brought low by the very virus they refused to take seriously. Sadly, several recanted of their anti-vaccine stances in particular before passing away, but by then it was too late.

exactly. they see that the person they gave the vaccine to only 2 days ago comes back and dies.

the "full dataset" people dont see a problem about that one person dying, as they are focusing on 100,000 people data sets and claim its only 0.00001% or whatever of total people and inconsequential. While also claiming its unproven in the data why that person died and its "still under investigation" (forever).

As opposed to the experience of the person who injected the vaccine into a healthy person who 2 days later comes back dead. Much different experience between the 2 groups.

Really? So explain this....

I would recommend it," Mr Trump said during an interview on Fox News Primetime on Tuesday. "I would recommend it to a lot of people that don't want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly." He added: **"It's a great vaccine*, it's a safe vaccine and it's something that works.

Trump is urging everyone, but specifically his supporters in MAGA-world, to take the vaccine - he assures you all that it is safe and effective...

But a majority of MAGA-world think the "Trump vaccine" doesn't work, that it contains "mind control chips", and will make you sterile...

So isn't Trump endangering his supporters by recommending they take this clearly ineffective and dangerous vaccine?

And another Red State careens out of control with the COVID surge....

The coronavirus is spreading so quickly in Idaho that the state has decided to allow all of its hospitals to ration care as they struggle to keep up with the onslaught of patients. 

“The massive increase of COVID-19 patients requiring hospitalization in all areas of the state has exhausted existing resources,” the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare announced Thursday, expanding a similar declaration from last week that was limited to the northern part of the state.

Two dozen Republican attorneys general warned the White House on Thursday of impending legal action if a proposed coronavirus vaccine requirement for as many as 100 million Americans goes into effect.

“Your plan is disastrous and counterproductive,” the prosecutors, led by Attorney General Alan Wilson of South Carolina, wrote in a letter sent to President Joe Biden. “If your Administration does not alter its course, the undersigned state Attorneys General will seek every available legal option to hold you accountable and uphold the rule of law.”

In other words, "You have no right to interfere in our decision to kill our Red State citizens."

By the looks of it, Republican attacks on masks and COVID-19 vaccines don’t seem to be particularly healthy for people living in red states. In several instances in recent months, both COVID-19 cases and deaths are notably higher in Republican states than in Democratic blue states...
