    The Flynn-Kislyak transcripts have been declassified and according to The Federalist’s Sean Davis, they “exonerate Flynn and indict Mueller for deceitful sleight-of-hand meant to obscure the truth”

    Democrat gaslighting in 3...2...1

    Before the numbers in the U.S. went up and he needed somebody to blame.

    "China is very professionally run in the sense that they have everything under control....we just sent some of our best people over there, World Health Organization and a lot of them are composed of our people. They're fantastic."



    ------------
    https://twitter.com/search?q=world health organization&src=typeahead_click

    Leaving the World Health Organization in the middle of a pandemic because he wants to spread propaganda while his people die instead of practicing science. This is some crazy dictator shit.

    This action by
    @POTUS
    to terminate our relationship with the World Health Organization is insane. With the reality of global travel, #Covid19 will continue to threaten the lives of Americans until it is eradicated worldwide.

    Can’t stop thinking about #polio. A few years ago, polio eradication seemed possible, even likely. In 2020, global vaccination campaigns slowed then largely halted because of #covid19. The U.S. has been a major funder of polio efforts through
    @who
    for 30+ years. What happens now?

    Useful idiots, that's what Trump supporters are. Anti-science, anti-intelligent dumb fucks. This idiocy is being normalized by Trump thru the Republican Party.

    Like I said. Hopeless Trumpers.

    The article didn't make much of a case either. Not much more than your own post. And the first paragraph: Amid the biggest global health crisis in a century, it is dangerous to hurt the one intergovernmental agency most able to guide the world out of it.

    Apparently the author has never heard of the Hong Kong Flu, Asian flu AIDS, Ebola or even tobacco, obesity and alcohol addiction. Starts out will silly hyperbole, then with an equally silly assertion: the one intergovernmental agency most able to guide the world out of it.

    And that was pretty much it.

    The case against it? A billion dollars. If you want a billion dollars from someone, you don't say, "Give me a good reason why I can't have it." You have to make a case for it.

    And Mr-X is right. They have been derelict in their mission to keep China happy. Withholding the funds will remind them who butters their bread. Let China cough up a billion, so they can at least pay for their influence.


    Here is one example for you (there are more). Not only did doctors not order the destruction of the global economy, but Woodstock took place right in the middle of this pandemic:

    – 1968-1970: The Hong Kong flu –


    Around one million people died of this disease, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

    Transmitted around the world between mid-1968 and early 1970, it in particular killed many children. It first started in Hong Kong, spread through Asia and reached the United States in late 1968. After lying low for several months it then hit Europe in late 1969.

    Two days ago you were claiming people should change their opinions when new data was available.

    You just like to complain.

    "do not, do not uh, allow this administration to box us in, right now, okay?" https://www.grassley.senate.gov/sit...05-29 ODNI to CEG RHJ (Flynn Transcripts).pdf


    KISLYAK: Uh, you know I have a small message to pass to you from Moscow and uh, probably you have heard about the decision taken by Moscow about action and counter-action.

    FLYNN: yeah, yeah well I appreciate it, you know, on our phone call the other day, you know, I, I, appreciate the steps that uh your president has taken. I think that it is was wise.

    KISLYAK: I, I just wanted to tell you that our conversation was also taken into account in Moscow and ...

    FLYNN: Good

    KISLYAK: Your proposal that we need to act with cold heads, uh, is exactly what is uh, invested in the decision.

    FLYNN: Good

    KISLYAK: And I just wanted to tell you that we found that these actions have targeted not only against Russia, but also against the president elect.

    FLYNN: yeah, yeah

    KISLYAK: and and with all our rights to responds we have decided not to act now because, its because people are dissatisfied with the lost of elections and, and its very deplorable. So, so I just wanted to let you know that our conversation was taken with weight. And also ...

    FLYNN: Good. Good.




    The interviewing agents asked FLYNN if he recalled any conversation with KISLYAK in which KISLYAK told him the Government of Russia had taken into account the incoming administration’s position about the expulsions, or where KISLYAK said the Government of Russia had responded, or chosen to modulate their response, in any way to the U.S.’s actions as a result of a request by the incoming administration. FLYNN stated it was possible that he talked to KISLYAK on the issue, but if he did, he did not remember doing so. FLYNN stated he was attempting to start a good relationship with KISLYAK and move forward.

    https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/5633260/12-17-18-Redacted-Flynn-Interview-302.pdf

    kind of a big thing to "forget."



    FLYNN: So, you know, depending on, depending on what uh, actions they take over this current issue of the cyber stuff, you know, where they're looking like they're gonna, they're gonna dismiss some number of Russians out of the country, I understand all that and I understand that, that, you know, the information that they have and all that, but what I would ask Russia to do is to not - is - is - if anything - because I know you have to have some sort of action - to, to only make it reciprocal. Make it reciprocal. Don't - don't make it- don't go any further than you have to. Because I don't want us to get into something that has to escalate, on a, you know, on a tit for tat. You follow me, Ambassador?


    The interviewing agents asked FLYNN if he recalled any conversation with KISLYAK in which the expulsions were discussed, where FLYNN might have encouraged KISLYAK not to escalate the situation, to keep the Russian response reciprocal, or not to engage in a “tit-for-tat.” FLYNN responded, “Not really. I don’t remember. It wasn’t, “Don’t do anything.”

    You should put Frankenstein on your reading list. It's about how your own creation can come back to bite you in the ass. Like CNN and the Dem cities are experiencing now. You promote tribalism - you get tribal wars.

    Excuse while I play the world's smallest violin for this woman, who most likely built a career by dividing people and creating this environment.

    A Trump supporter talking about.............tribalism. Brilliant. Getting in your quota of stupid stuff to say. This is a guy that is making it wearing a mask = Dem. Not wearing a mask = Trumper.

    Now to the actual video, is there anything in there you actually disagree with? I'm guessing you probably agree with it, you just wanted something to complain about. Your ignorance is showing as well, since you could have simple Googled her. I think she was quite clear in the video.

    You make as much sense as usual today. Have fun when the riots come to your neighborhood. Or do you live in a gated community?

    Oh, you weren't done saying stupid stuff. Everything in my last post made sense, it's why you just responded the way you did. There aren't going to be riots in my neighborhood, no it's not gated. Riots are usually in downtown areas, where a lot of people are, not in residential neighborhoods. Do you have a TV? Internet? Do you think the CNN building is in a residential neighborhood? Do you see homes next to it with people mowing their lawn?

    Why would a young single guy like you want to live in a boring residential neighborhood? Too much diversity in the city? You prefer your own tribe?

    My tribe? Diversity?:ROFL::ROFL::ROFL: I'm pretty sure I pointed out before that I'm an Army brat. Lived many different places. Very multicultural growing up.

    Everything is Trump's fault.

    Democrats running Minneapolis and Minnesota acted quickly, soberly explained the truth and asked for calm. Media practiced discretion and covered the facts as is their norm.

    There is nothing in the video about Trump. Is this Dumb and Dumber day? And yes, Trump is making wearing a mask a thing to divide. And Atlanta is not in Minnesota genius.

    You lived on a little replica of suburban USA implanted into the middle of a foreign culture. Like having Disneyland outside a gated community. The couple times I have been on a base, I found it fascinating how they preserved middle class Americana that was completely disconnected from the world outside. Even the food was bad in the way that only American food can be. Denny's style.

    But keep up with your arguments. We are dumb, dumber and stupid. Yet, you are not the tribal one.

    I always thought you skipped a lot of class, maybe got kicked out of school based on yours. One time I thought you got booted out of the country based on some posts you made about how Trump talked about his children. That you thought that was a normal thing to do. It's not btw.

    @mr-x - looks like you were wrong again. This just happened right before midnight:

    Supreme Court won't force states to speed up church reopenings

    "Chief Justice John Roberts, who cast the deciding vote in the more consequential California case announced just before midnight, said choosing when to lift restrictions during a pandemic is the business of elected officials, not unelected judges. He was joined in the vote by the court's four liberal justices........
