The US is not an Empire, never was and never has been. Every time I hear that from the Marxist and leftists
Are Max Boot and Niall Ferguson Marxists and leftists?
Have you ever heard of Manifest Destiny?

"to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago,
Why does Kavanaugh have to add how long ago this "didn't" happen? Is he implying that even if it did happen, it's a long time ago and doesn't matter because he was just a rich prep school brat feeling his oats?

The Nobel Prize in Literature should not be regarded as a gold medal win for a specific nationality. Great literature transcends nationalism. I am glad that Ishiguro won the prize, not because he is Japanese or British or whatever, but because he is a great writer. Ditto Hesse, Faulkner, Camus, Oe, etc.

Kerry's actions here are, I think, problematic, whatever one may think of Trump's Iran policy (or his overblown reaction). That said, they're certainly no worse than Tom Cotton's letter to the Iranian government when Obama was president. A nation's foreign policy should be consistent and communicated with a minimum of confusion.
Tweets don't help either.

There can only be two reasons why Japan insists on hunting animals almost nobody wants to eat:
1) to reinforce public perception that the world doesn't fully appreciate Japan's unique "traditions" (like hunting whales near Antarctica, ha ha), thereby bolstering nationalism and the LDP
2) to support an industry in which certain members of the government and organized crime groups have a vested interest
Neither of these reasons warrants the wasting of marine resources (or the killing of intelligent mammals, according to some) or tax revenue.
Whatever happened to the uniquely Japanese ethic of "mottainai"?

One wonders why Japan invests so much money and effort in protecting its whaling industry while there is such low demand for the product. What a charade. What a waste.

It must be a very slow day for the media today. But I do give them props for trying so very hard. Lol
Trump tweets something outrageously stupid and offensive. Even high-ranking Republicans object to these assertions. Meanwhile his loyal supporters blame the press for reporting these things.
Check out far left Fox "trying so very hard" to "bring down" the president. Libs! Lol

And nothing else works so here comes Stormy again! With a book!
The deep state left has been trying to bring down Trump for years. When leftist building contractors weren't paid for their work for Trump's hotels and casinos, they blamed Trump! And then ultra-Marxist news outlets reported it:
No one in history has been treated as unfairly as Trump has been.

Trump = sirloin

Who to believe: two highly decorated military generals or a reporter doing/saying anything just to sell a book?
Yes, somebody already made that point. A little late to the rodeo, eh comrade? I assume the correct answer is the slimeball reporter who’ll do anything for a buck. The lib who’ll write things about Donald Trump that nobody would ever imagine in a zillion years. Against our man. Against our dear, dear leader.

So if you think Woodward is wrong about this, which is the logical conclusion to draw from your posting this link, you think that Obama didn't make a mistake
I'll translate bass' point into English:
Bass wants to say that because Woodward has also been critical in his reporting of Democrats in the past, which has made some Democrats upset, therefore Democrats are being disingenuous in their trust of Woodward this time, which means Woodward's book on Trump's WH must be a nothing burger or completely false.
I know, this logic escapes me as well, but I'm just translating.

"She is not the type of person who asserts herself boldly, but she is shy and humble and that makes her look more like a Japanese," Junko Okamoto, a communications specialist, wrote
Some people are shy and humble, and some are not. Naomi Osaka grew up in the U.S., so it's odd to attribute her personality traits to ethnicity. Unless this "communications specialist" is implying that being humble is a genetic characteristic of the Yamato race.

"An 'extremely credible source' has called my office and told me that @BarackObama's birth certificate is a fraud."
--Donald J. Trump, August 7, 2012
And yet Cult 45ers believe the esteemed journalist Bob Woodward lacks credibility.
To the left, Woodward is a Deep State icon. Nothing more, nothing less.
Ha ha. One of the men who exposed Nixon's corruption is now considered "deep state". Another fever dream of the diseased alt right #QAnon crowd.

Most Japanese support the death penalty simply because they don't want to think about it, or haven't had much opportunity to.
It does not deter crime.
It does not bring solace to the victim's loved ones.
It is not justice. An execution is still a moral sin, a failure to find better solutions.
The death penalty serves no purpose other than to legitimize state murder.

"I would agree to take it in a heartbeat and would submit to any review the administration wanted to do,"
This is the same Mike Pence who said Trump "hasn't broken his promise" to release his tax returns. He's a bald-faced liar, a charlatan, and a suck-up.
I doubt if it was Pence who wrote the op-ed, but not because I think he's an honest person.
you don’t know if this person was a Republican or a Democrat
Yeah. Maybe it's all just a hoax, like Obama's birth certificate.

we elected him to usurp Washington the failed and corrupt swamp.
He has accomplished neither. America's democratic institutions do not allow for a Sun King, and Trump's administration is mired in corruption and legal crises.
You should have stuck with your original 2015 conclusions about Trump. He's a nutcase. And now you have to defend him. I feel sorry for you.

Democrats will continue to lie and try to use every devious trick they have in their bag of tricks
OK, then, show us an alternative account of Trump's White House, one in which the president is well-informed, thoughtful and balanced in his decision making, steady in temperament, and respectful of those who offer differing points of view. One in which the entire presidency is not about pleasing the insecure blowhard who somehow managed to become president. Show us such an account. Otherwise your criticism of "Dems" and "libs" and "the left" is just the usual chin music.
