  1. So who here really believes Trump has no idea who Lev Parnas is?
  2. I love how Trump fans use the fact the money was eventually paid as evidence nothing illegal was going on. They completely ignore that the money was finally paid only after the Whisleblower complaint had been made and was going to be made public. It's a hap hazard way to cover their tracks.
  3. Why do people care about the Kardasians? Republics still manage to find extraordinarily rich people to care about. It's human nature I guess. Having this Ceremonial position seems to have been a net benefit to the Commonwealth. And, if anything, the family drama keeps people entertained.
  4. You don't care, yet you're commenting. This is a big story, especially in Canada where they may go.
  5. Fine, so we're parsing the argument to the fact that portions of the UK press is racist, but enough to make Markle feel unwelcome.
  6. Here are some examples of the perceived racism. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/09/opinion/sunday/meghan-markle-prince-harry.html The one example about Archie detailed here is so egregiously racist. I'm shocked that this fool would ever find work again. https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-48212693
  7. That's the thing about Racism. It's rarely so overt. But why the double standard from whitbred Kate to Meghan. I'm commenting on the Brits because this, otherwise very popular modern couple, has essentially been made to feel unwelcome in the UK. And for what? What did they really do so wrong other than be a mixed race couple. And this is 2 for 2 for Americans women being hated by the British. But in Wallis Simpson's case, she was a Nazi sympathizer sooooooo. . .
  8. I would suggest if she was white, this wouldn't be how they saw her LA roots. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3896180/Prince-Harry-s-girlfriend-actress-Meghan-Markles.html
  9. Definitely worse than Kate as exhibited by the examples posted.
  10. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/ellievhall/meghan-markle-kate-middleton-double-standards-royal https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/why-the-medias-attacks-on-meghan-markle-are-beyond-hypocritical.html/ If you take a look how the UK basically killed Harry's mom and now they act with disgust that he marries a racialized person, I totally get why he'd want to GTFO. It's why racism is tough to tackle. Racism isn't so much people saying "I hate X Race" few are that brash. But it's the double standard where people are far less likely to forgive the perceived sins of a person of a different race than one of their own. If they choose to live in Canada, it'll be a boon. The $10 mil it may cost to have security for them will be well worth it IMHO.
  11. Pointing out he lies all the time is just TDS I'm sure you'd happily point out all the times JT lies. To the point of the thread. This assassination led to increased tensions that directly led to the deaths of some 60 Canadians. No debating that. And because it was clearly not done to "defend the US"
  12. Then why make that excuse initially. It was clearly a lie. Par for the course with Trump. He's moved off of that and now just says, "I killed a bad guy". He could probably use that justification for killing a lot of people that pose no threat to US public safety.
  13. The Trump Admin has provided no credible evidence that Solemani was about to greenlight an attack on any US Embassies. His cabinet are even saying that there was no information indicating an attack was imminent.
  14. I never used a CNN quote to argue this issue.
  15. You have presented no standard. You just choose to deny evidence presented. I think I've presented many sources that claim that Burisma was not being investigated by Shotkin. And not from CNN. But you refuse to believe it. You live in a much smaller bubble than I do.
  16. And caused them to act out in multiple ways and are now about incite the US to declare War on them. Perhaps that says more about Trump's temperament than the effectiveness of Sanctions as he's the one who assassinated one of their leaders. Calling someone dumb for presenting a differing opinion is much different from coining a term for fans of Trump.
  17. He was fired for not investigating corruption. The Trump narrative is that he was fired to protect Hunter Biden. Those two narratives don't jive. Assuming you believe Hunter Biden's position at Burisma is corruption and not just plain old Nepotism.
  18. Well Sanctions haven't been working against Iran. See the War Trump is about to start with them. Sanctions are what caused Pearl Harbour BTW. And that conflict escalated to the first and only Military Nuclear strike. So no Sanctions don't work. Ad Hominem attack reported BTW.
  19. The Obama deal sought to avoid hardship of sanctions so that they'd play ball with Nuclear inspectors. Of course Trump can't abide by anything Obama did so he doubled down on sanctions and hoped Iran would tap out. It's actually done the opposite, Iran has been acting out. Now both countries appear at the edge of war.
  20. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/10/03/what-really-happened-when-biden-forced-out-ukraines-top-prosecutor/3785620002/
  21. Sanctions don't work either. War doesn't work either. At least diplomacy tries to avoid death and hardship. Trumpophants have been all about Diplomacy with North Korea and The Taliban.
  22. But not for personal gain. It was the Obama administrations position to have Shotkin removed. Cite that he said he didn't know his son worked there. Nepotism in politics? SHOCKING Trump never benefitted for Nepotism or anything. Shokin wasn't investigating Burisma. Getting him fired didn't protect Hunter Biden.
  23. Lets ignore that there's plenty of evidence that Trump withheld funds to get Zelenski to investigate the Biden's (as well as some crazy Crowdstrike Conspiracy theory) What National Security purpose does it serve to investigate Joe Biden for something did in 2016 on tape? The argument that he had that prosecutor fired to protect his son doesn't make sense because his son wasn't being investigated at the time. But in 2019, how does investigating Biden serve the US National Interest? It serves Trump politically, but that's what he had Rudy and those other two goons for. Even the idea that he'd ask Zelenski to investigate the Bidens seems to be an abuse of power (again ignoring the withheld military funds). It doesn't serve to US in any way, shape or form.
  24. Cool with the more reckless speculation.
  25. https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/06/politics/john-bolton-testify-impeachment-subpoena/index.html UH OH!
