Posted in: Legal experts summoned by Democrats call Trump actions impeachable See in context

A more accurate title would be:

Legal experts calling Trump actions impeachable summoned by Democrats.

They are saying it needs to be investigated further and put to a trial.

Trump has been asking for a trial. This way his side can call their own witnesses and get to the bottom of this mess.

The last thing the swamp wants is a real trial.

Posted in: Iran says it killed protesters in deadliest unrest in decades See in context

Amnesty International believes the unrest beginning in mid-November and crackdown that followed killed at least 208 people. An Iranian judiciary official disputed the toll Tuesday as “sheer lies,” without offering any evidence to support his position.

Has Amnesty International provided evidence supporting the killing of "at least 208 people"?

This is how the revolution against the Shah started.

It reminds me of how protests in Ukraine and Syria turned into war thanks to well placed enemy snipers, to be blamed on the governments that they wanted to topple.

Posted in: Zero-hour on climate, but U.N. talks in another time zone See in context

How can someone be so stupid as to believe people who go to school to study this subject, dedicate their lives to studying this subject, and are in unison that our planet is a mess?

It does appear they are in unison, only because you only hear one side of the argument.

Regarding the planet being a mess, I guess scientists are united.

But regarding global warming, they are not united. Some of us are aware that many of those people who dedicated their lives to studying this subject say that humans have very little or no effect on climate.

Some of us also remember the Climate Gate scandal, which exposed some of the intentions of climate scientists.

Dept-based banking, pollution, and corrupt governments are real and serious problems; global warming isn't.

Posted in: Department store reviews plan for staff to wear menstruation badges after outcry See in context

Whether it was the girl's idea or not, surely it was male executives who accepted the proposal?

I suspect some (all?) of those male executives felt the idea was silly but were perhaps afraid of being labelled as a misogynist.

In today's society, it seems they cannot avoid being labelled as a misogynist by the discontents: If they accept the proposal, they are misogynist; if they reject the proposal, they are misogynist.

Anyway, the badge was not compulsory...

Whatever your view on SK is, you have to admit this is an impressive result.

Such widespread commitment would indeed be impressive if it was directed towards something positive. But the only thing that is impressive here is the ability of the South Korean authorities to brainwash their citizens...

Posted in: U.S. troop presence in Japan a concern for Russia: Lavrov See in context

The American troops and bases in Japan will never will never be withdrawn as long as the nations of Earth are still warring with each other.

The US is behind most (all) recent and current wars. If US forces would just stay at home, the world would be a much better place.

Anyway, I trust Russia much more than I do the US. Japan should get rid of all US military.

It's unfortunate that this impeachment hysteria distracts us from the much greater crimes, such as the Finders Keepers child trafficking ring or the billions that were laundered by Hunter Biden et al.

Posted in: Prince Andrew urged to cooperate with U.S. over Epstein See in context

Still no mention of Epstein's partner, Ghislaine Maxwell. She is almost as guilty as Epstein, and she is in the infamous picture of Randy Andy and his victim. Why hasn't Maxwell been arrested yet; seems they aren't even trying to catch her.

Posted in: Amid turmoil, Prince Andrew to step back from royal duties See in context

The problem is not his "association/links/history/relationship with Epstein", it's for having sex with under-aged girls.

Epstein’s alleged suicide has indeed "left many unanswered questions". So why don't the authorities go after Epstein's partner Ghislaine Maxwell, who BTW was also in the infamous picture of Randy Andy.

Posted in: Israel strikes Iranian targets in Syria; 2 reported killed See in context

Shalom. Good for Israel. Protect yourself.

Israel murdered Syrian civilians in response to alleged rocket attacks into the Syrian-owned Golan Heights, which are illegally occupied by Israel. So Israel was only protecting (assuming the rocket attacks were real) their illegal occupation.

Any attack against Israelis in occupied territories is 100% legit in my book.

Posted in: Epstein jail guards charged with falsifying records See in context

The great thing about conspiracy theories is that no matter how much evidence comes up to debunk the theory,

What evidence are you referring to?

My feeling is that Epstein was likely murdered (80%), is still alive (19%), or he committed suicide (1%).

Anyway, the guards were likely told (by whom?) to look away...

The big question now is why aren't they going after Ghislaine Maxwell...

Posted in: Iran, Russia lash out at U.S. plans to protect oil in Syria See in context

Wait, I thought Trump was Putin's puppet. What gives?

Naah, they were vigorously pushing that narrative only to try to hide the fact that Hillary had infinitely closer ties to Russia.

Her tax returns didn't indicate that there is any substance behind this claim. She wasn't beholden to Russia financially. It's all on record, very transparent.

Perhaps because her tax returns do not include "donations" to the Clinton foundation.

Anyway, an internal DNC poll before the 2016 election revealed that Hillary's top vulnerability was her ties to Russia. So the DNC itself believed her ties were a problem. That is why they so vigorously projected the fake Vlad-Donny narrative for years, and posters here can't seem to be able let go of it.

Trump's stealing of Syrian oil is not right, and he has many faults, but ties to Russia (or Putin) is not one of them.

Wait, I thought Trump was Putin's puppet. What gives?

Naah, they were vigorously pushing that narrative only to try to hide the fact that Hillary had infinitely closer ties to Russia.

Anyway, if their goal was only to protect the oil fields, there is no valid reason to exploit those fields, that is theft.

Posted in: Tokyo 2020 marathon move decision 'final', says IOC's Coates See in context

Coates said other options that have been mooted, including starting the events as early as 3:00 am, were impractical because of transportation issues and the difficulty of filming in the dark.

I suspect this has more to do with not wanting to film the marathon in the dark than the health and well being of the runners. Besides, it would only be "dark" for the first hour or so. I am sure Tokyo can provide adequate transportation during that night and early morning.

It would be a shame if Tokyo can't show off the city during the marathon.

Would they use a male cartoon with a huge bulge in his jeans halfway down to one knee? Somehow I don't think so.

That's comparing apples to bananas.

Indeed, that is not a valid comparison. It's not like they are showing a camel toe, or the outline of her nipples. They're not even showing any cleavage.

Yeah, she has a big chest; so what? So if they use a female cartoon character, she must be flat chested?

American troops are ridiculed and humiliated as they withdraw from Syria

No, the American troops were ridiculed when they entered Syria (and Iraq and ....) as they were naively used to do Israel's dirty work.

I suspect the attacks against Trump (impeachment, Russian collusion, ...) are because he refuses to expand the wars (e.g., against Iran).

Posted in: Putin, Erdogan strike deal to remove Kurdish YPG from Syria border See in context

Lives lost, homes raised, communities decimated, all for what?

The only reason the Kurds have been occupying this region is that previous communities were decimated by the ISIS-Saudi-Israeli-US coalition and replaced by their Kurdish allies. It was an attempted land-grab, which fortunately does not seem to be working out so well.

American troops are ridiculed and humiliated as they withdraw from Syria.

The US only withdrew about 28 troops from northern Syria. I believe they still have a large presence at their base in the south.

Beijing's Communist government has never ruled Taiwan and so it cannot be "reunified".

Indeed. Historically, it's the other way round.

Indeed, if reunification does occur, it is the government in Taiwan that should retake control of mainland China...

I wonder if there have been previous accusations against this 60-year-old doctor. If not, I am rather suspicious.

The Kurds are Israeli allies. So I wonder if the timing of Trump's retreat from Syria is linked to the impeachment witch hunt. Or perhaps linked to Netanyahu's losing of the recent election.
