  1. Get that bloody dog off the damned porch!

  2. Still not a shred of evidence that racism played a role in the death of George Floyd.

  3. Apparently social distancing is no longer important in Montreal, Toronto or Vancouver. Thousands jammed together, shoulder to shoulder to decry American racism towards Americans.

      Literally the exact same group of people that were telling us that if we didn't stay locked away at home that we didn't care about killing people.

      Yep. I guess life and death gets pushed aside when something important shows up, like protesting against imaginary racism in another country.

  4. There is no evidence the killing of George Floyd was racially motivated. Or even related to racism. The media have simply gone with their own beliefs and stated them as fact.

  5. Police need to clear the vermin off the streets.

      Animals looting and burning, it is not protesting.

      I'm so over it.  I, of course was siding with the black community over the killing, but they've lost me.  It's all about the looters and Antifa now.  This is gonna set back race relations and trust to a point even worse than before.

  6. I don't have a problem shooting looters and arsonists.

  7. TIL 100,000 Americans and Canadians fled to the USSR during the great depression. All were eventually killed in the pogroms.

  8. Not everyone who hates Israel is a Nazi, but all Nazis hate Israel.

  10. Trump fires yet another inspector general. When will these fools learn to not investigate what he and his people are doing!?

    1. Shady

      He was fired for leaking, not investigating.

      Which one would that be? The Transportation IG who was investigating Mitch McConnell's wife for diverting funds into helping her husband's re-election, or the State Department IG who was investigating the use of taxpayer dollars to entertain Republican donors?

    3. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      You forgot the Defence department IG who was removed for the crime of overseeing coronavirus relief funds. I think shady was referring to yet another---the whistleblower who behaved ethically and within the law and leaked nothing. 

      Criminality is as contagious among Republicans as Covid-19.

      She's just going to argue the case that a pretend COVID-19 should replace the actual COVID-19 when the latter finally gives up the ghost.  Most western liberal governments will accept the plan.  Everyone else will not and AGW will come roaring back, but this time dirtier.

      Well gee, who woulda thunk it? I've only been mentioning decreasing solar activity and a grand solar minimum for about a year now.

    4. OftenWrong

      OftenWrong

      I'm aware that the solar minimum has been prolonged in this cycle. So what, we have seen other strange things in recent years happening out there. Never really looked before.

      This could be fake news, meant to stir the panic-pot a little more. Hence "lockdown" period. Even the Sun is in lockdown, that's how screwed we are.

      Some outlets imply this is the dawn of a new ice age. It is far more likely just good-old regular variation in seasonal temperature.

       

  11. Chinese never miss a chance to screw and rob people, even if it kills them. That's the culture of China.

      There are laws and standards that corporations have to adhere to.  Corporations, and all businesses.  They also have to respect intellectual property.  Nobody in China does.  No, it definitely IS a China thing.  We don't have the same issues with any other country.  Stop making excuses for their regime.  The one that covered up a deadly virus and then sent it out to the world.

      Plus it's China flooding the world with fake N95 masks. Not the US, not Taiwan, not Vietnam or India or Thailand or Pakistan. China. It's always China.

      Yes, and faulty tests as well.

  12. "[The opium trade] is a mere incident to the dispute. … The cause of this war is the kow-tow—the arrogant and insupportable pretensions of China, that she will hold commercial intercourse with the rest of mankind, not upon terms of equal reciprocity, but upon the insulting and degrading forms of the relation between lord and vassal." US President John Quincy Adams.

  13. Biden accuser loves Putin. "President Putin has an alluring combination of strength with gentleness. His sensuous image projects his love for life, the embodiment of grace while facing adversity. It is evident that he loves his country, his people and his job. President Putin’s obvious reverence for women, children and animals, and his ability with sports is intoxicating to American women. President Putin scares the power elite in America because he is a compassionate, caring, visionary leader." Tara Reade

  14. A nation is broadly defined as a body of people united by common descent (race and ethnicity), culture, history, language and religion. All of these traits do not need to be shared by a nation; however, the more traits held in common, the greater cohesion the group possesses and the stronger the identity.  - anonymous

      Ruling class elites have decided to put that all aside.  Consequences be damned.  Virtue signalling is much more important to them.  So is new indebted voters.

      Dallas Morning News debunks yesterday’s labradoodle fake news story.  It’s just fake news after fake news after fake news.

      Yes, the family of the HHS chief of staff sold fancy puppies, but that’s not how he got the job, and in any case he wasn’t in charge of the coronavirus task force, no matter what you’ve read online.

      Its sad that people fall for this just because it reinforces some stereotype they have of Trump.

    4. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      Well, that seems like a desperate attempt to change the subject from the verifiable stupidity you are trying to portray as false in a manner that is pathetic even by gaslighting Trumper standards.

  16. US delays sending cheques so they can print Trump's name on them. I think this man is actually outdoing Narcissus. We may need to start calling egotistical assholes Trumps instead of Narcissists.

      Checks have already gone out.  This sounds like previous fake news stories.  Like Trump is profiting from hydroxychloroquine, or that the pentagon briefed Trump on corona virus in November.  They’re always based on unnamed sources, and then turn out to be wrong.  I know that’s it’s easy to believe because it reinforces everything you think of Trump.  But most of these stories turn out to be false.

      How do you imagine this could be faked? The checks either will or will not have his name on them. There's no way to fake that.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/coming-to-your-1200-relief-check-donald-j-trumps-name/2020/04/14/071016c2-7e82-11ea-8013-1b6da0e4a2b7_story.html

      Their a propaganda arm of the Chinese government.  Even issuing statements to the world based on what China tells them, even without being able to validate the claims.  Trump is right, funding to the WHO needs to be seriously questioned.

  20. Trying to figure a reason why Trump would fire the independent inspector general overseeing the $2 trillion spending program OTHER than wanting to steal as much as he could by diverting it to his businesses and those of the grifters around him.

  21. And meanwhile several planeloads of immigrants continue to arrive every single day to a closed down country.

    1. scribblet

      scribblet

      Yes they do, not just immigrants but planeloads of people from China who are not checked or tested, that's the worst part.  They are asked some questions, given a brochure then on their way.   Trudeau's lack of border controls and refusal to lock down travel/border has jeopardized all of us.

      When I say "community", I mean the community of New York. I don't believe we have had community transmission in Manitoba yet.

      I understand Ford’s frustration.  But if the situation was reversed, and doctors and nurses in Toronto couldn’t get the protective equipment they need, at the same time Canada was shipping that equipment to other countries, some questions would be raised and action demanded.

    3. Shady

      Shady

      Regardless, this isn’t protectionism.  Protectionism is practices protecting certain industries from outside competition.

      I don't believe this is true. It's only on that one site, one I've never heard of before. Just last week they announced they were hiring 10,000 more workers, and just yesterday they announced bonuses for their workers in light of the pandemic danger. Walmart's web site has a 'covid-19 update' page and it says nothing about closing down.

    3. dialamah

      A lot of stores are doing curbside pickup, so that's possible.  By closing, I took that to mean closing to all business.

      I think if that was the case it would be on their web site and it's not. And I think it would have been covered more widely.
