As the "sanctions" against the Saudis show, Biden's bite is toothless. MBS and Putin need not fear Biden's BS. It'll now be up to other world powers like the EU and Germany, a country that knows all about crimes against humanity, to find ways of "making them squawk".

The reggae music of Bob Marley and the Wailers and other Jamaican artists put Jamaica on the world culture map by expanding and enriching people's music literacy and upping the feel-good mood of millions. I was just one of the many inspired to make a pilgrimage to the island and remain grateful for the good memories of the Blue Mountain bliss and high times I spent with the people there.

Cuomo is a messed up individual...
just like that other more famous guy then who always gets a pass from his millions of minions?

Like many another ensconced in his "high castle", Cuomo is about to find out that there can be consequences for skating on thin ice. It's tough to admit, but nevertheless true that many powerful male players (not to exclude "alpha" females) accustomed to privilege and pampering can rarely rein in their desires and forego any opportunity to flex their ego. Another problem is that their "victims" may not always be ignorant of their boss's Achilles heel or chink in their armor. It may all be in the game, but there's no denying - it's rough!

“Our national security team believes that going after the network responsible for these actions is the best way to prevent a crime like this from ever happening again,” (so sez Psaki)
Biden's "Noo-Democrat" mask can't hide the mealy mouth of an old establishment pol who has always bitten his tongue to follow the safety-first principle of not rocking the boats of the powerful by observing the practice of impunity for the select few. Because everybody knows, "some ARE above the law".

"This monster must be stopped," said Trump.
Wow! After decades of Trump watching I never could have guessed that the 45th was capable of such self-awareness. But just to make certain that the monster is stopped in his tracks criminal charges, prosecution and incarceration is the trifecta Biden, the Dems and all patriots must aim for to save the Republic from the threat of idiocracy.

Biden's mask appears to be slipping because it now looks as if he is only paying lip service to human rights and reverting de facto to the traditional default position of the ruling American establishment which is to hold the nose and turn a blind eye to the most heinous acts of foreign dictators and despots as long as they benefit the economic and geopolitical interests of the administration. I hope Biden's coddling of the murderous MBS by not sanctioning him personally and ensuring that he never becomes king will not become the first mistake (and step to bizness as usual) by Biden who has undeniably compromised bona fides from his past record as a pillar of Washington's corrupt political establishment.

The faux gilt "Big Boy" Potus is a hilarious piece of kitsch Americana to remind us of the tacky, tasteless Trump. The artist would reportedly like to see it housed in The Donald Trump Presidential Library! Question is will there be room for it squeezed among all the tweets?

Biden is unsubtly messaging to the world to highlight his different MO to that of his crooked predecessor. Bizness with the oil kingdom must continue, but Biden will never have a warm relation with the murdering Prince Mohamed "Bone Saws", like old "Bone Spurs'" personal emissary, Jared Kushner, had.

No wonder the structure and practice of Japanese education characterized by the regimentation of pupils to produce serried ranks of obedient, unthinking children creates much of the disfunctionality of so many individuals who suffer from various forms of arrested development. As George Bush Jr once opined,"Rarely is the question asked, is our children learning?"

By the time the DOJ and state DAs have dealt with DJT's long list of criminal shenanigans it should put paid to all the Trumpster pipe dreams of a "Second Coming". The GOP is already pedaling the air over the cliff and by 2024 the headless Republicans will be running in circles like the proverbial chicken.

Everything has its day. When man gave all things a sex he thought, not that he was playing, but that he had gained a profound insight: it was only very late that he confessed to himself what an enormous error this was, and perhaps even now he has not confessed it completely. In the same way man has ascribed to all that exists a connection with morality and laid an ethical significance on the world's back. One day this will have as much value, and no more, as the belief in the masculinity or femininity of the sun has today.
There, Nietzsche nailed it!

Biden will have to take decisive action to stop the dangerous nonsense that still holds millions of American voters in thrall, by prosecuting to the full extent of the law ALL those Republican politicians who have played leading roles in disseminating lies about a "stolen election" and "winning by a landslide" in an attempt to nullify the results of a fairly contested presidential election, thus violating their oaths of office, the Constitution and putting the country's democratic system in jeopardy. Their treasonous and perverted acts have turned the GOP into the Gaslighting Orangem*n's Party that has made the USA into the laughingstock of the world!

He should have known better: pulling a stunt like that will have consequences because you can only get off scott free when it is a government-sponsored operation, in which case even murder and mayhem are "on the table", as history teaches us every day.

Yes, if your parents happen to be lifelong friends with a male actor whom you see as a father figure, make sure that you are never alone with him.
Well, as wise men say, "don't follow leaders", to which I would add my two cents, "and never trust father figures" (to keep their hands in their pockets in the presence of nubile females because the flesh really is weak).

"Intelligence" is a rare commodity in the Washington's "jurassic swamp" where gaslighting sharks and conning crocodiles swim around at the top of the food chain thriving on the gullibility of small fry following the slime trail of their leader MIA. Merrick Garland will have his work cut out for him just to catch a few of these slippery critters, but he can forget about draining it: administrations come and go, but the swamp stays.

great to see so many posters on here actually like Trumps policy on China
Trump wouldn't know the meaning of the word policy even if he owned a dictionary. And there is every possibility that as the Trump brand goes south the trashy Trumpware made in China may soon be toast.

As Thomas Jefferson once said, *'whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.'*, aka in 2021 it's time to hit the streets and make a REVOLUTION in Myanmar! The military junta must be terminated (with extreme prejudice) asap.

That takes serious balls
More likely a serious mental illness. It's tragic when a boy of twenty still hasn't learned to cherish the precious gift of life despite all the tribulations that existence can inflict and has been unable to acquire the insight and wisdom to understand that even if life may seem meaningless, living is surely meaningful.

"The Buck Stops Here" has never meant anything to sociopath of Trump's ilk, especially since his shockingly inadequate intellectual capacity paralyzed his decision-making and inevitably severely compromised his ability to organize and manage the affairs of state as Potus, a job that was clearly to all but 75 million Americans way over his head. As a result Covid in America today is what it is: 500,000 dead and counting.

Let's hope "cooperation" is a "two-way street" and not the American "my way or the highway". My personal "litmus test" of Biden's commitment to justice and his "liberal" values will be whether or not he renounces the the vindictive cruelty of government authoritarians that runs like a raw, red gash all through US history: I'm talking about the fate of whistleblower, Julian Assange, who has already suffered enough and more than he deserved in the dungeons of the UK's "Deep State".

The rabid rabble rouser finally emerged from chewing the carpet his bunker in Florida to rant and rave on right-wing looney tunes TV stations. The sooner criminal charges are brought against him, the sooner America can turn the page on Trumpism and move on to healing a nation half-traumatized by cults and conspiracies.
