      China state run media said the exact same thing via Twitter.   You're in good company.  I think Iran is on board with you as well.

      You must know that it's not a good thing when China is elated that Trump is gone and Biden is the president...right?

  2. ANTIFA goons attacking book stores and people trying to enter them to buy book about them they don't like. Book jumps to #1 on Amazon bestseller list.

      Bad people are bad people, regardless of political stripe.  Antifa use violence to shut up people whose views they disagree with, but they haven't stormed the Capitol Building to try and overturn the legitimate results of a federal election recently.  It's little wonder Trump and his supporters are getting more press at the moment.  One can still be disgusted by both sides though.  It's no trick at all.

      As Sam Harris said "There's a difference between a group looting Banana Republic and a group trying to turn the country into a banana republic.

      This meme that attacking the seat of government, going after the politicians there, trying to stop a legal, legitimate, constitutional change of government is somehow the same level of importance as looting Best Buy is moronic, at best. I've spent months posting comments and video about BLM and Antifa scum attacking people, as well as the gutless Democratic governments which won't crack down on them. Yet I can easily see the higher level of outrage and importance in what happened on January 6th even while wishing a truckload of those Trump goons would pull up outside the bookstore above and beat the crap out of the leftist goons there.

  3. I love how the Trump loyalists are calling the Democrats both Marxists and Fascists! LOL. All while making it clear they'd welcome a Trump dictatorship.

      I feel safer.  At least, now that they gave Trump the local Domino's Pizza number and told him it was the updated nuclear codes I do.

    They'll miss him when he's gone.

      Seeing that I provided the links to the Canada-China bath pathogen story...which was buried back then yet alone today...and the sudden appearance of a Chinese bat virus...I'd say the chances are pretty darn high that the Red Chinese built and released this virus.

  5. The far right are not conservative and the far left are not liberal.  -- Jonathan Haidt

    1. Infidel Dog

      Infidel Dog

      They both have a socialist bent though.

      Goes without saying the far left does but pay attention to what white nationalists or neo-nazis are saying about who would control the means of production in what's called their far right utopia, some time.

      And here's something else Jonathan Haidt didn't tell you but is openly accessible to anybody willing to open their eyes and ears and listen to what classical liberals are saying lately. They're finding they have a lot more in common with actual conservatives than they used to notice. While Progs, RINOs, and conservatives-when-it's-convenient have shut themselves off from reasonable discussion, Classical Liberals and actual Conservatives have opened up a dialogue.

  6. “I want him to resign. I want him out. He has caused enough damage. I think he should leave. He said he’s not going to show up. He’s not going to appear at the inauguration.

    “He hasn’t been focused on what is going on with COVID. He’s either been golfing or he’s been inside the Oval Office fuming and throwing every single person who has been loyal and faithful to him under the bus, starting with the vice president.

    “He doesn’t want to stay there. He only wants to stay there for the title. He only wants to stay there for his ego. He needs to get out.

    “He needs to do the good thing, but I don’t think he’s capable of doing a good thing. ‘  Senator Lisa Murkowski (R) Alaska

      Shady isn't worried about the many huge lawsuits that are springing up for spreading lies about these voting machine companies? They released the kraken for $1.2 B on stupid Sidney. He's not as anonymous as he thinks he is. Pretty stupid thing to do now.

       

       

  8. Trump is, indeed, unbound by constraints of any kind: neither of laws, nor civility, nor even a rational sense of his own interest, but slave only to his desire to consume and destroy whatever frustrates his appetites or wounds his vanity. He has the mental age of an 11-year-old and the emotional age of a five-year-old, and for the past four years he has been president of the United States.

     

    This amazing fact can be put down to three things. The first is the consistent inability of his opponents to grasp the full dimension of his nullity: his character is not deficient in certain qualities, but wholly lacking in all of them. No matter what the evidence that he is, in this regard, utterly without precedent, the tendency is always to consider him in light of some historic example of awfulness, as if he were merely corrupt or stupid or treasonous, and not all three of those and more. And so we are constantly surprised by what we always knew, never expecting him to go as far as it was always evident he must.   - Andrew Coyne

  9. Former Attorney General William Barr says President Donald Trump’s conduct as a violent mob of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol was a “betrayal of his office and supporters.”

    Barr said Thursday that “orchestrating a mob to pressure Congress is inexcusable” in a statement obtained by NBC News.

      Sorry. Not even close. But regardless, you shouldn't do bad things just because other people do bad things. What kind of mother did you have if she didn't even teach you that?

      I've always skimmed multiple networks in the morning: FOX, MSNBC, CNBC, CNN, RT, Al Jazeera, BBC, Euronews, CBC and CTV... What are you watching now, Dog? Qanon TV? What channel is that on?

  11. Responding to President Trump's tweet calling his supporters who violently stormed the US Capitol earlier Wednesday "great patriots," House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney said the President is "abusing the trust of the American people and abusing the trust of the people who supported him."

      I just come here for the humour. 

  12. President Trump’s first Secretary of Defense James Mattis called the riots in Washington, DC, today a "violent assault on our Capitol, an effort to subjugate American democracy by mob rule" and said it "was fomented by Mr. Trump.” 

    Mattis said Trump has used “the Presidency to destroy trust in our election and to poison our respect for fellow citizens has been enabled by pseudo-political leaders whose names will live in infamy as profiles in cowardice.”

  13. "The United States and the United States Congress have faced down much greater threats than the unhinged crowd we saw today. We have never been deterred before, and we will be not deterred today. They try to disrupt our democracy, they failed. They failed. They failed to attempt to obstruct Congress. This failed insurrection only underscores how crucial the task before us is, for our republic."   - Mitch McConnell

      Mitch was happy to fork over big money for military spending, but only a paltry 600 bucks per American. His priorities for the the future of the "Republic" are pretty clear.

      That is why Trump has exposed all of them, these charlatans, and why they all hate him now.

      Well, thankfully, the $2000 cheques can go out now that the Dems have a Senate majority.

      Trump must be very grateful to the voters of Georgia for so forcefully supporting his policies.

      Yes, you were right to condemn the violence at the BLM protests (and to notice the absurd contortions of the media). But there is a difference between looting a Banana Republic and turning our country into a banana republic. - Sam Harris

      Quiet day today in the capitol? If that's all, that was nothing. Try visualizing the situation had Trump won, and how many on the left would cheer on the riots and burning and looting. Not even close.

    4. BubberMiley

      BubberMiley

      Yes, but Biden will never incite a riot, and no one can deny that Trump incited that riot.

      Not without getting laughed at anyway.

  15. Trump left his wife behind when she was 5 minutes late for the plane. Even though he saw her run up and wave. Took off anyway. Every time I read about something this guy does in private it always turns out he's a flaming asshole.

      I can't find the story.

  16. “Efforts to reject the votes of the Electoral College and sow doubt about Joe Biden’s victory strike at the foundation of our republic. It is difficult to conceive of a more anti-democratic and anti-conservative act than a federal intervention to overturn the results of state-certified elections and disenfranchise millions of Americans." - former VP candidate and speaker of the House Paul Ryan

  17. Shady cries himself to sleep every night clutching his Donald Trump doll.

  18. Virtual reality is kinda cool. It'll be amazing with more technical advancement.

  19. Advertising agencies and their corporate wokeism now think it necessary to have a black face central in just about every single TV advert — always black, almost never Indian, Chinese or Bangladeshi.

    This irks the public, not because they object to seeing black faces but because they understand that they are once again being hammered over the head by patronising and frankly racist corporate wokeism.  - Ron Liddle
