    Good grief, you really live in the past, First you blabber away forever about slavery, now it's about Hitler. We are in 2017 and you are bringing up stuff that happened such a long time ago.

    Only Leftist Lunatics will believe that there will be another Hitler in Europe or in North America. That will NEVER happen again. Not in this day and age. That only happens in Africa and parts of Asia or the Middle East. Nowadays it may even be difficult to get another Hitler in Central or South America.

    You guys must be having nightmares, imagining trainloads of liberals being taken to gas chambers. Amazing how f*cking brainwashed and paranoia leftists have become.

    Here is another example of a Leftist loony once again attacking Trump's 10 year old son:
    Comedy Central Guy Calls Barron Trump A ‘Date-Rapist-To-Be’ With A ‘Small PP’

    Comedy Central contributor Stephen Spinola tweeted Friday morning, the morning of President Donald Trump’s inauguration, that his 10-year-old son Barron looks like a “date-rapist-to-be.”

    Spinola followed up his now-deleted tweet with a second now-deleted tweet in which he said he hoped Barron would one day rape his mother.

    “I don’t want my Mom to get raped, but if she does I hope it’s by Barron Trump,” he wrote. “Small pp [sic] would be painless and we’d win lots of money in court.”

    This piece of vermin later apologized, which is BS. That's not an appology

    [​IMG]Stephen Spinola @Mr_McStevie
    I believe in Math and the stats are saying I made a bad joke. I truly apologize if it hurt Barron Trump's feelings. And thats all I can say.

    3:43 PM - 23 Jan 2017

    Here's another Leftist Loony that attacked Trumps son:
    SNL's Katie Rich 'suspended' for 'insensitive' tweet about Donald Trump's son Barron

    Saturday Night Live staffer Katie Rich is no longer working on the show after controversy gathered around a tweet she posted about Donald Trump’s 10-year-old son.

    “Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter,” she wrote during the inauguration, when a ton of memes were circulating about the boy.


    Rich deleted the tweet a few hours later, but Trump supporters were still calling for an apology or dismissal.

    As the creator of this thread I for one hate to see members use the Dislike button here but that is their right to do so.

    I created this thread for everyone to express their US political views in one place instead of the way it use to be here where political views were being posted in most other threads.

    I would rather everyone express their Dislike in a post to whatever they Disagree with instead of hitting the dislike button.

    Just my 2 cents

    Yeah, don't worry everyone. You're living in fairy Trump land.

    The US/Trump and the superheroes will never do any wrong (only the terrorists).

    Don't worry, your best interests are at heart (assuming anyone actually has one? at least that works!).

    No one is a selfish uncaring monster. No one has their own agenda and is looking out for themselves.

    You made it to no. 1 richest country in the world by doing all amazing things that humanity is so proud of.

    Don't question it, because that is not patriotic!

    The people you see dying on the TV don't really exist! Even tho they hardly/or ever show what is happening in Yemen anyway!?

    The universe is not real anyway (thank God)!

    Of course, all those jobs were created in the Obama economy and represent a teeny, tiny fraction of the jobs created during his presidency. But, get used to the idea that Trump will take credit for anything good that happens while he's in charge -- from positive economic news to good weather -- while OTOH taking 0 responsibility for anything bad that occurs. Those will be everyone else's fault.

    The Trump effect has already started and will continue to snowball into a massive boom in the economy and in jobs in the US, which in turn will benefit other countries. The results will start showing up in a year or 2 if not sooner.

    The MSM which absolutely hates Trump will continue their war against him, becoming the de facto opposition to Trump.

    But Trump can beat them and outsmart them as he has proved so far. So I'm very happy to see Trump give the Media hell, because they deserve it and more.

    Yes, more nonsense. You can do some simple digging and find out most of that was already planned before Trump was elected.

    # 6 is part of #7

    "Although Mr. Trump claimed credit for SoftBank’s $50 billion investment in the United States, those plans predated the election, and Mr. Son has owned a controlling stake in Sprint, among other companies, for several years."

    Or the Kroger and those 10,000 positions

    Supermarket operator Kroger said on Monday it would fill 10,000 positions this year,

    but........

    The number of permanent jobs being filled this year, however, is lower than last year's hiring and represents about 2 percent of Kroger's total workforce.

    For the sake of clarity, when the media catches Trump in a lie ( a daily occurrence ), and he responds by "giving them hell", does the fact that he convinces you that he's a victim of unfair media coverage prove that he's good at outsmarting the press, or is it evidence that he has an easy time fooling you?

    How did you figure this out? Have you travel the entire freaking planet? Do you have PhD in the field of research? I am not arguing with you, but I would like to know, how did you make the math.

    After concluding the flow testing phase, Afek Oil and Gas will now begin analyzing samples drawn from the Ness-2 drilling site, euphemistically dubbed “Deborah’s Well,” in the Israeli-occupied region of Syria known as the Golan Heights. New Jersey-based Genie Energy, Ltd., Afek’s parent company, claims a dubious cadre of investors cum war profiteers, including Rupert Murdoch, Dick Cheney, Lord Jacob Rothschild, former CIA director James Woolsey — as well as a number of current and former U.S. politicians.

    Prior testing at a separate Afek site did not meet expectations, so the company sought other “sweet spots” in the area. Analysis of samples from additional wells will be performed by Afek scientists in conjunction with “external international experts.”

    To understand U.S. involvement in the quagmire in Syria, Afek’s oil exploration is of critical import.

    Israel’s occupation of the Golan Heights region violates international law — thus, Israeli permits granting Afek the ostensible right to perform exploratory tests of a possible “large reservoir” of natural gas and light oil is also illegal. But in a world where Big Oil remains powerful enough to drive foreign policy of the U.S. empire, this direct violation of the Geneva Convention might not even be worthy of a footnote — except to the people of Syria.

    In fact, as The Free Thought Project’s Justin Gardner previously reported, the unsavory character heading Genie Oil is none other than Efraim “Effie” Eitam, an Israeli military commander and former Knesset member who once called for the expulsion of the “cancer” of Arabs from Israel.

    “Expel most of the Judea and Samaria Arabs from here,” Eitam arrogantly asserted during a soldier’s memorial service in 2006. “We cannot be with all these Arabs and we cannot give up the land, because we have already seen what they do there. Some of them may be able to stay under certain conditions, but most of them will have to go.”

    In addition to the eyebrow-raising cabal of Eitam, Murdoch, Cheney, and Rothschild, Genie Oil and Gas appointed new members to its Strategic Advisory Board last September, including:

    “Dr. Lawrence Summers, 71st Secretary of the Treasury under President Clinton and Director of the National Economic Council under Pres. Obama; former Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu, who is credited with helping pass the U.S.-Israel Energy Cooperation Bill while she chaired the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources; former governor of New Mexico, Bill Richardson, who became an energy insider after serving as the Clinton administration’s Energy Secretary; and former Director of Central Intelligence, R. James Woolsey, who co-founded the U.S. Energy Security Council.”

    At stake is a 153 square-mile region in the Golan Heights, demarcated by Israeli authorities as exclusive territory for Afek to perform exploratory testing, which began in 2015, through early April 2017.

    However, even beyond the not-at-all-minor issue of legality, Afek’s drilling in the region has stirred another, perhaps more imperative, concern. A large aquifer supplying the entire region’s drinking water is positioned uncomfortably close to the stores of fossil fuel — raising contamination concerns sufficiently serious that an Israeli high court issued a temporary restraining order in 2014, though it was quickly dismissed.

    But none of this bothers Murdoch, Cheney, Rothschild, and the others, as the Golan Heights to Big Oil represents little more than an exploitative business opportunity. Syria, in fact, has been systematically torn apart primarily because foreign powers and radical groups seek to protect their varied oil interests.

    While the Afek ilk set their sights on Golan Heights oil and natural gas, Turkey, the U.S., Russia, Daesh, and a spate of others have been fighting over Syria’s geostrategic location for major oil pipelines under the cover of religious and civil strife.

    “[W]e may want to look beyond the convenient explanations of religion and ideology and focus on the more complex rationales of history and oil, which mostly point the finger of blame for terrorism back at the champions of militarism, imperialism and petroleum here on our own shores,” Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., intoned in an April editorial for Ecowatch.

    As Kennedy astutely noted, U.S. interventionism in the Middle East, and particularly Syria, has little to do with fighting terrorism and far more to do with the region’s rich petroleum reserves — as in the case of Genie’s magnates. And such insistent international meddling at the behest of corporate oil interests so destabilized the entire region, it led to the formation of Daesh (ISIS) and similar radical groups.

    Of course, oil exploration certainly benefits the ongoing push by Israel to expand its occupation and settlements, since U.S.-backed Big Oil operates under the premise the manufactured nation’s encroachment on Syrian territory is perfectly legal. Often, as is the case with Afek and Genie, the Golan Heights is dismissively referred to as “Northern Israel.”

    Environmental and humanitarian groups vocally criticize Afek’s exploratory drilling, but despite growing international outcry, have not succeeded in halting ongoing tests.

    Considering the notoriously powerful, monied warmongers backing Afek’s petroleum plans, outrage and violation of international law wouldn’t factor one iota in matters concerning the Golan Heights.

    The best proof that he outsmarted the media is the fact that the media had him losing to Hillary in all the polls, while demonizing and belittling him. He proved them all wrong.

    Now please show me how many times the Liberal Media has said anything GOOD about Trump.

    Now you show me how many times the Liberal Media has said anything BAD about Obama.

    The Liberal Media are totally biased against Conservatives and even worse against Trump.
    They hate him because he refused to bend down to them like other Republicans had done.
    The Democrats don't have to bend down because virtually all the Main Media is Liberal.
    Trump is Politically Incorrect which irritates the Media.
    He doesn't put up with their sh*t which irritates them even more.
    He called and pointed the Media out, calling them dishonest in his massive rallies which infuriated the Media.
    Then he started using Twitter and by-passing them, which made them froth in the mouth with rage.

    I really wish the worst of luck for the Liberal Media in the coming years till they learn how to REPORT the news, NOT to lie and omit the news and certainly not to constantly give me their f*cking biased version of the news.

    Just report the NEWS, like they used to do 40-50 years ago. I don't need so called political analists trying to convince me of their opinion. I can think for myself.

    So for the Liberal Media I say to you: May the flees of a thousand camels infest your armpits. That's my wish for 2017. The following years I will wish you even worse things.... unless you change, which I know is impossible. Asking that from the MSM is like asking a snake NOT to bite ...

    In an article entitled "Why the Arabs don’t want us in Syria," published in Politico in February 2016, Kennedy referred to the "bloody history that modern interventionists like George W. Bush, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio miss when they recite their narcissistic trope that Mideast nationalists 'hate us for our freedoms.' For the most part they don’t; instead they hate us for the way we betrayed those freedoms — our own ideals — within their borders." Kennedy wrote that the reverberations from decades of "CIA shenanigans continue to echo across the Mideast today in national capitals and from mosques to madras schools over the wrecked landscape of democracy and moderate Islam that the CIA helped obliterate." He cites evidence for claims that Syria's president, Bashar al-Assad, led military and intelligence planners to foment a Sunni uprising by his rejection of a proposed Qatar-Turkey pipeline through Syria in 2009, well before the Arab Spring led to uprising against Assad.[65]

    “Now, I said it for economic reasons,” Trump said. “But if you think about it ... if we kept the oil, you probably wouldn’t have ISIS because that’s where they made their money in the first place, so we should have kept the oil. But, OK, maybe we’ll have another chance.”

    “No. That’s pillaging, and it’s a war crime.”

    https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/po...makes-sense/agDuY3hkEXKxisI302rZbI/story.html

    Experts also raised questions about the usefulness in seizing Iraq’s oil as a strategy for weakening ISIS. Most of Iraq’s oil is in the south of the country and controlled by Shia Muslims, who hate ISIS, a terrorist organization comprised of Sunni Muslims, said Robert McNally, the president of the Rapidan Group, an energy consulting firm in Bethesda, MD.

    Nearly all the oil in Iraq is in areas where ISIS doesn’t exist,” he said.

    Exactly, people never learn the lessons from History. Extremist policies have never done any good, they always lead to war and misery.
    Sadly the US (and its Western allies) is the biggest terrorist (just look at the human casualties of the bogus war on terror).

    Foreigners entering the US already have to deal with a true dystopian Gestapo (aka ICE aka DHS).
    America (not only America) is now much much less free than it used to be. And you can count on Trump to expand the surveillance state massively.

    What Trump says has to be taken literally: he is building a wall. But it is a wall around the USA. Try to ponder what it means. Walls are not one-sided shields, they are meant to filter both in and out. The communists sold the Berlin wall to the populace as a way to protect against smugglers, profiteers, parasites, saboteurs etc. So a good number of people were relieved, satisfied or indifferent in the beginning, because they didn't immediately understand the implications. Then they realized they were locked up.

    The US isn't East Germany yet (even though the NSA is already taking on the role of the Stasi), but there are many reasons why you can be denied a US passport, for example being late on alimony or child support payments. The right to travel and move freely is quite relative.
    Walls are the key to enforcing borders and restrictions on people.

    America fist.

    If the US is such a bad place why the hell are so many coming in Legally and many millions coming in Illegaly?

    I'm assuming you live in the UK and it's obvious you are all for open borders. When the UK gets overrun by foreigners and the tolerant Brits become a minority do you really think those foreigners especially the Muslims will have any tolerance towards you? In the not too distant future when the UK gets to enforce Sharia law over every kuffar, do you really think they will worry about your human rights?

    This your future if Muslims take over the UK

    Trump admin orders EPA contract freeze and media blackout

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration has instituted a media blackout at the Environmental Protection Agency and barred staff from awarding any new contracts or grants, part of a broader communications clampdown within the executive branch.

    The prohibitions came to light Tuesday as the agency moved to delay implementation of at least 30 environmental rules finalized in the closing months of President Barack Obama's term, a potential first step to seeking to kill the regulations.

    A summary of the actions posted in the Federal Register includes a long list of regulations that include updated air pollution rulings for several states, renewable fuel standards and limits on the amount of formaldehyde that can leach from wood products. President Donald Trump signed a directive shortly after his inauguration on Friday ordering a "regulatory freeze pending review" for all federal agency rules that had been finalized that have not yet taken effect.

    Emails sent to EPA staff and reviewed by The Associated Press also detailed specific prohibitions banning press releases, blog updates or posts to the agency's social media accounts.

    As always, you aren't quoting in full. It should read like this: Real Madrid drop Christian cross from club crest in Middle East
    Source: https://www.theguardian.com/football/2014/nov/27/real-madrid-christian-cross-abu-dhabi-crest

    Not saying this is a good thing or not, it's just localized branding. Companies routinely use different brand names in different markets.
    There are things you avoid doing in certain countries, for example in Greece extending the hand with five fingers open (to say five), is considered a rude gesture :) If you know that, you don't do it.

    You are very gullible person, Trump is not your friend, he loathes the EU of which your home country is a member.
    Why would you worship somebody who treats you like dirt.

    Treat me like dirt? LMAO. He's been in office for 5 days and quite busy doing the things he promised, unlike the majority of politicians.

    He will never treat Gilsan like dirt, because I'm on his side 200%. I wish we had several leaders in Europe like him, to straighten the sh`t going on in the EU.
