Posted in: Trump drops plan to host G7 summit at his golf resort See in context

The man doesn't take a paycheck but is "using the presidency to enrich himself" by hosting an international summit at his resort.

His company properties SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED TO BEGIN WITH. It's clear that he's been using his company to launder political donations and favors from foreign governments, the Ukrainian President said so OUTRIGHT in his phone call.

According to the memo, Zelensky complimented Trump's plane, conspicuously mentioned that he stayed in Trump Tower, recycled a Trump campaign slogan, and called him a "great teacher."

This shows what the American promise is worth, NOTHING! Japan after all did not help out at Normandy. If Japan gets hit, we can expect no American assistance. They will turn their tails and run.

Actually, Japan did help out during D-Day. They were just on the losing team. Japan was Hitler's distraction to keep the US busy in the Pacific. Germany never really considered Japan equal. If Germany would have won WW II, they would have later conquered Japan.

However, I do understand that US promises have very little meaning under the current administration.

"I don't know that anyone gets anything out of seeing the same movie over and over again," the 80-year-old filmmaker said.

Yes, he is supporting Scorsese who just directed the Irishman. Another Martin Scorsese Gangster Movie starring Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, and Robert DeNiro. Deja Vu?

Irony or just publicity for their movies?

Is it Necessary?

Mr. Johnson tried to pull the same scam as the US President. He sabotaged other people plans then took the same deal that May received, repackaged it, put his name on it, expected people to vote for it, and attempted to take credit. Now he is trying to circumvent the law. (ie. This is me Boris Johnson going through the motions of following the law, but you should just ignore it because it is only for show.)

Apparently, the people (supporters and opposition ) across the pond have been watching and learning from "the Art of the Con" by the US President!

Just lost my little sister, 41 years old, to breast cancer 2 weeks ago. Take this stuff seriously and get checked if you find anything suspicious.

Why are people downvoting the loss of a loved one?

Rainyday - I am very sorry for your loss. It is a terrible, unnatural thing, to lose a sibling.

Why are people downvoting another poster for offering their condolences?

Isn't it also because women are going to the OB-GYN more often than they used to, for regular check-ups, so cancers are being detected earlier more often? As opposed to men, who do not get checked out until much later in life.

A smear test and prostate checks are optional in many annual company health checks - and if you want it you have to pay for it yourself.

There is a lot of truth in what Maria is saying. I think a large part of the increase is the early detection. Women have a large variety of exams to choose from and a lot of these different examinations seem to be offered much earlier for women. There are so many types of women examinations that they can receive that the chances of finding a problem is higher.

Prostate exams are usually recommended to start for men in their forties and fifties. Also, the basic exam offered by NHI does not tell you squat. Unless you company has good health insurance, and you qualify for it, you must pay out of pocket for quality tests. Therefore, people who get annual check ups may find out too late that they have a serious problem.

Speaking of HPV, there is still no clear way to test men for HPV other than the presence of genital warts which are usually not there. Many men including responsible ones may have HPV and spread it unknowingly because there is no credible test for men.

Men can never be certain if they have HPV. Research in the US says a large majority of the population has HPV. However, women do have a credible test for HPV. Usually women are the ones that are told they have HPV then their male partners can only assume that they have it too.

Ofure - a friend that you bathe with before or after having sex.

Casual encounters(hookups) + one-night stands + Ofure + Sefure = total number of sex partners and sexual activities.

Will they pardon the foreigners too!

Separately, special individual pardons will be granted to those fined for minor infractions within the last three years and whose job prospects have been impacted. 

How will they verify that someone's job prospects have been impacted? How are they going to decide those most deserving of the pardons?

Putin will be invited as a surprise guest! Nothing will be done because the president will side with Russia on all matters. He will vilify the Ukraine while Putin is near then he will publicly ask for assistance with the election like before from foreign governments basically projecting his plans. The president will have a secret meeting with Putin to negotiate the terms of their agreement for Putin's assistance in the next election.

These are just names for techniques that women use to string men along as options unless someone better comes along. For men, these are the names of stages some men have to endure to becoming a "sefure".

@Haaa Nemui

@Numan - those snippets you pasted from the article are about an incident in rugby? That’s not what I’m reading.

The article mentioned those events because they are probably the reasons that Maro Itoje brought up the topic. Obviously, he is comparing the similarities and differences between soccer and rugby. The similarities are what he is raising awareness of.

The 24-year-old said he was aware of fellow professionals and players at grassroots level being subjected to racist abuse.

Here he is referring directly to Rugby.

Bulgaria FA President Borislav Mihaylov resigned in the wake of the match and police in the country have detained six people so far, with more arrests likely.

Football (Soccer) is just as bad if not worse!

@mikeylikesit

This is nonsense on both counts. It is impossible to predict the weather precisely months ahead of time, but the overall climate is very predictable. 

Really??? The predictions that you are referring to are based on averages and are not 100% accurate.

Do you think that people can predict years in advance the intensity of the weather for the upcoming years with a 100 percent accuracy? In case of the Olympics, the city are awarded the games several years in advance.

Did anyone predict that there would be an earthquake the same day as the strongest typhoon in decades in the Kanto (Chiba area) last week?

If weather predictions are so accurate then why wasn't the Rugby World Cup not rescheduled for dates to avoid the typhoon years in advance?

Most experts say the predicting weather conditions 6 months in advance is unreliable! Do you know more than the experts?

As for the dates being traditional, the "traditional" date to hold Summer Olympics in Tokyo is October. The most recent four Summer Olympics have all been scheduled in late July and August because of the preferences of American TV broadcasters and to facilitate participation of pro athletes in a few sports, but July-August not a firm, long-standing tradition. As recently as Seoul (1988) and Sydney (2000), the Olympics were held in late September and early October. Why is Tokyo different from Seoul or Sydney?

Tokyo doesn't have a "traditional date" to hold the Summer Olympics because the Olympics is not a Japanese tradition! Scheduling the Summer Olympics during the Summer months is tradition. That is why they are not called the Fall Olympics!

The sheer incompetence and buffoonery in the IOC and JOC is unbelievable.

I wouldn't blame the IOC as much as the JOC. It is hard to factor in climate change when choosing cities, and the dates are tradition. However, the Japanese government sold their bid on using sympathy and wanting to help their country recover. The area really benefiting is Kanto specifically Tokyo. These events could help the economies of a lot of regions in Japan.

Well, interesting turn of "events" here! If the marathon and long distance walk races are moved to Sapporo, and seeing as how the baseball and softball will be in Fukushima, let's move the Karate to Okinawa and make this the JAPAN Olympics.

Seeing as how ALL our tax money is being used for these events, let's get everyone involved!

I like Yubaru's idea. If the Japanese government is really sincere about their purpose for these events then why not have the events all over the country. Spread the wealth!

Military Leaders Fear They've Seen This Before. It Ended in the Iraq War.

https://news.yahoo.com/military-leaders-fear-theyve-seen-185048509.html

“In the course of American history, when we have stuck with our allies in troubling circumstances, from the U.K. and Australia under attack in WWII to South Korea in the Korean War, things tend to work out to our benefit,” said James G. Stavridis, a retired admiral and former supreme allied commander for Europe. “When we walk away from loyal allies, as we did in Vietnam and are now threatening to do in Afghanistan and Syria, the wheels come off.”

At the end of the Persian Gulf War, the United States’ refusal to aid a rebellion it encouraged in Iraq allowed Saddam Hussein to brutally crush the insurgents, leaving him in power and U.S. allies on the ground alienated and slaughtered by the thousands.

Those deaths are on the current US president. He owns it now.

Posted in: Model Angelica Michibata's husband arrested on extortion charge See in context

The 37-year-old husband of model Angelica Michibata has been arrested on suspicion of extortion after he allegedly threatened a man with video footage of him and Michibata alone in a private room.

Poorly written article with confusing pronoun reference.

How was there footage from a hidden camera if Michibata wasn't in on it?

Was this private room known or suspected by the husband to be used by his wife to meet other men?

Why would being alone in a room with the wife be enough to extort someone if nothing untoward were occurring?

I suspect it was at Kim's place. It would be the only way to have cameras setup ahead of time. The place that I know of that offers private rooms with cameras in them are karaoke bars. Anything else sounds sketchy!

Another question is what kind of membership bar. Also is Michibata in on this scam. It sure does seem like she is.

Posted in: Trump threatens to 'obliterate' Turkish economy over Syria incursion plan See in context

@Longtermer

Trump is getting us out of these endless wars and the anti-Trumpers freak out.

What gives?

The ultra conservative Trump supporter Pat Robertson also criticized the US president for not punishing Saudi Arabia. Other Republican congressman and Fox has also criticized the president for pulling out of Syria.

“The president, who allowed [Washington Post journalist Jamal] Khashoggi to be cut in pieces without any repercussions whatsoever, is now allowing the Christians and the Kurds to be massacred by the Turks,” he exclaimed. “The President of the United States is in danger of losing the mandate of heaven if he permits this to happen.”

Robertson’s forceful condemnation of the president comes as Trump takes heat from some of his staunchest defenders over the Syria pullout. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called the president’s move “irresponsible” and “unnerving to its core,” while Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade said the decision was “disastrous” as it would leave the Kurds to fend for themselves.
