It was huge news...but Obama supporting media reported it quickly and it went away. In the conservative and foreign spheres, they wouldn't stop talking about it. It was outrageous. Conservatives because to them, the US military is honorable and doesn't bomb hospitals, and for foreigners, it was because it confirmed everything they already know about the evil baby-killing US military.

But OMG some locker room talk and the world goes apeshit. Shows how screwed up everyone's priorities are. One of "our" people mass murders, better not mention it. One of "them" makes an off-color comment and it means they're horrible people.

No it wouldn't. Obama did so much worse shit than that and people still love him. He dropped 200,000 bombs killing and maiming tens of thousands of women and children. Remember when he bombed a Doctors Without Borders hospital and sent gunners in to kill the fleeing nurses and patients?

https://www.msf.org/kunduz-hospital-attack

The attacks took place despite the fact that MSF had provided the GPS coordinates of the trauma hospital to the US Department of Defense, Afghan Ministry of Interior and Defense and US Army in Kabul as recently as Tuesday, 29 September. The attack continued for more than 30 minutes after we first informed Resolute Support and US military officials in Kabul and Washington that it was a hospital being hit.

Despite what the American media told you he was not well liked abroad. You will notice during his last term he would often not be greeted by a senior delegation when visiting foreign countries, this was due to the hospital bombing. One of the most shocking events of the 21st century.

And people still love him.

It's very unusual for that to happen without any issues presenting beforehand.

But add up the facts that:

  1. she was a very pretty, platinum blonde little girl.

  2. Steven Spielberg, a known Lolita Express passenger, spotted her and took to her right away.

  3. She starred in three Poltergeists.

  4. This was an age when children were regularly left alone with Hollywood pedophiles for a whole day, with no cell phones or internet.

  5. Just look at the photo of them together. Why is he touching her and having her sit there? Who is he, Joe Biden?

  6. She mysteriously dies from injuries consistent with being violently fucked up the ass.

Hollywood pedophiles don't get the benefit of the doubt.

https://www.cambridge.org/core/services/aop-cambridge-core/content/view/D5214D0CAE37EE5947B7BF29762547EE/S0730938417000181a.pdf/effects_of_physical_attractiveness_on_political_beliefs.pdf

Utilizing measures of attractiveness across multiple surveys, we examine the relationship between attractiveness and political beliefs. Controlling for socioeconomic status, we find that more attractive individuals are more likely to report higher levels of political efficacy, identify as conservative, and identify as Republican. These findings suggest an additional mechanism for political socialization that has further implications for understanding how the body intertwines with the social nature of politics.

Also, http://www.nationaleconomicseditorial.com/2017/05/25/weak-men-prefer-socialism/

A new study published in the Evolution and Human Behavior journal, by researchers at Brunel University, London, found that physically weaker men are more likely to favor socialism than stronger men.

The study sampled 171 men, and looked at their height, weight, bicep circumference, and overall physical strength—then they compared these traits with the men’s views on the redistribution of wealth, and income inequality.

They found that physical weakness was correlated to a preference for socialism.

Europe has demanded an end to American bullying for quite some time. It's now coming to an end.

Europeans don't think that US bases defend them. They find that they are only used for military adventures in the Middle East. These create refugees that then invade Europe. It is difficult to find fault with this line of reasoning.

NATO is dead and Europeans killed it.

Article:

How solid is the West? At last weekend’s Munich Security Conference, the world’s largest gathering of security policy makers and officials, the theme was “Westlessness,” referring to the sense of disorientation that many Europeans feel in this age of America First.

Since the 1940s, U.S. leadership in the service of a united and secure Europe has been the one unchanging feature in the Continental landscape. For generations, the U.S. committed to protect Europe from Russia, maintain bases in Germany to prevent it from threatening its neighbors, and promote European integration. Now Europeans don’t know where they stand, and a mixture of bafflement, anger, disappointment and fear fills the atmosphere at conferences like the one in Munich.

There’s little doubt that Trump administration policies, ranging from trade wars to toughness on Iran, have tested trans-Atlantic relations to the breaking point. But to understand the growing weakness of the Western alliance, Europeans need to spend less time deploring Donald Trump and more time looking in the mirror. A good place to begin is with a Pew poll released earlier this month on the state of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

Superficially, the poll looks like good news. In 14 European countries plus Canada and the U.S., a median 53% of respondents said they had a favorable view of NATO, while only 27% saw the alliance unfavorably. Despite double-digit declines in NATO’s favorability among the French and the Germans, these numbers aren’t bad. Mr. Trump, Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel are all less popular in their home countries than NATO is.

So far, so good—but that support is thin. When asked if their country should go to war with Russia if it attacked a NATO ally, 50% of respondents said no, and only 38% supported honoring their commitment to NATO allies.

Let those numbers sink in. Only 34% of Germans, 25% of Greeks and Italians, 36% of Czechs, 33% of Hungarians and 41% of the French believe their country should fulfill its treaty obligation if another European country is attacked. Only the U.S., Canada, the U.K., the Netherlands and Lithuania had a majority in favor of honoring the NATO commitment to mutual defense.

Europeans often contrast the “nationalism” of backward political cultures like Russia, China and the U.S. with their own supposedly enlightened attitude of cosmopolitan solidarity. Yet if these numbers are accurate, Europeans haven’t replaced nationalism with European solidarity. They have replaced nationalism with fantasy: the belief that one can have security and prosperity without a strong defense.

That vision leaves Europe vulnerable, and it is threatening to let the West unravel. European leaders believe they are trading parochial loyalties for higher and broader commitments, when in truth their countries lack the solidarity that makes international order possible. Those who dream that they can have security without the willingness to fight for it are slowly turning NATO into the paper tiger that its enemies hope it will become.

Meanwhile, Europeans still, mostly, trust America. Seventy-five percent of Italians believe the U.S. would rally to NATO’s defense if Russia attacks, as do 63% of Germans and 57% of French. Despite European ambivalence about fulfilling NATO obligations, the alliance is held together by their confidence that America—Mr. Trump’s America—will fulfill its obligations.

Europe’s problem isn’t Mr. Trump. It isn’t nationalism. It isn’t that others aren’t wise or enlightened enough to share Europe’s ideals. It is that too few Europeans stand ready to defend the ideals they claim to embrace. That young Germans no longer dream of fighting and dying to conquer Poland is an excellent thing, but it is a bad and even a dangerous thing that so few young Germans think Europe is important enough to defend and, if necessary, to risk their lives for.

This problem won’t be easy to solve. For many Europeans, the essential purpose of European integration was to end war. For centuries, the restless nationalisms of European peoples plunged the Continent into one wretched war after another. The European Union was meant to bury those national antagonisms and end the cycle of war. To love Europe was to enter a posthistorical age of perpetual peace. For voters who grew up in the European cocoon, the military defense of European ideas sounds like a contradiction in terms. How can you build peace by making war?

In contrast, Americans continue to believe that Europe is worth defending. We must hope that over the next few years more Europeans will come around to that position; otherwise, the prospects for “Westlessness” will only grow.

Trump tariffs led to job losses, higher prices for businesses: Fed report by nygal in politics

Once again, no mention of how the tariffs are completely fucking up China. They are hurting them bad, and that was before the Wuhan virus.

https://www.chinalawblog.com/2020/01/how-to-prevent-china-factory-problems-and-trademark-theft-that-is-happening-like-never-before.html

"Chinese factories are hurting these days. Bad. Their sales are way down, especially to the United States. In China’s manufacturing exodus set to continue in 2020, the South China Morning Post made this starkly clear with statistics:

Tariffs saw China’s trade in goods surplus with the US fall by 7.9 per cent in November, according to data released by the US Census Bureau on Tuesday. This was amid a 20.84 per cent fall in Chinese exports to the US from a year earlier, including items like cellphones. US purchases of Chinese goods are now at their lowest point since March 2013.

Of equal importance is that China factory exports are expected to dip even more in 2020:

For every foreign company that left China in 2019, there were two to three more seriously contemplating doing so and we expect more companies to leave China in 2020 than in 2019.

Chinese factories are well aware of these numbers, and they are terrified by them. Chinese factories see American companies reducing their purchases to buy their products elsewhere. “Compared with June 2018, the month before the trade war began, US imports of goods from Vietnam have soared 51.6 per cent, Thailand 19.7 per cent, Malaysia 11.3 per cent, Indonesia 14.6 per cent, Taiwan 30 per cent and Mexico 12.7 per cent.” This massive downturn in American companies manufacturing in China has greatly impacted Chinese factories and greatly influenced how they see things."

  2. if you go to reddit.com and not archive.is, you see that the mods deleted it because it was determined fake.

  3. it could have been they determined it was fake because it damaged reddit's interests to be exposed as astroturfers.

China isn't backing the norks. Where do you get your information from? They stopped a number of years ago. They got Burma to change by telling them, "try our way and get fabulously rich." Burma did, and now they're expanding like crazy. The Chinese went to Pyongyang and said the same thing, and the norks outright refused. Kim purged the China-supporting members of the nork government.

You're really crap at arguing. Incuriousity is a terrible trait in humans. People always hate which they do not understand.

It's always the case that hate comes from ignorance. The most hateful people have no idea what it is that they hate, whether it be immigrants, communism, or in this case religion.

Let me guess, to you “Religion” means ISIS and the Westboro Baptist Church? Even if you add abortion clinic bombers, the Crusades, the Salem Witch Trials, and the Spanish Inquisition, we are still talking about a statistically non-existent proportion of, even just the Christian faith, let alone all “religion.”

Religion is an effective way to help people who don't understand that acting in a way beneficial to the community is also beneficial to themselves.

It gives people a sense of comfort and a reason to keep going in a cruel, uncaring world.

The world is a better place if we all act as if God exists.

See how easy that was? And yet you're completely ignorant? Wow, that's just embarrassing. No wonder you're such a bigot.

Plus there's the whole charity thing, which concretely makes the world a better place. Ever heard of the Sacco and Vanzetti hospital? Yeah, exactly.

And if there were no religion, how would internet atheists like yourself find anyone to look down on?

ahem the workers don't. The government owns the means of production. In the name of the workers, of course.

It turns out workers are too stupid and deplorable to know anything about running businesses. They have to have smart people to do it for them. You leave workers to organize things on their own and what do you get? Donald Trump!

OK, let's try something from the pyramid of debate. What you're doing now is strawmanning: taking the weakest parts of the opponent's argument and pretending that they are the whole. Instead, try steelmanning, which is stating the strongest parts of the opponent's argument.

It is ignorant and uneducated of him

Things are better for the entire human race than they've been ever in human history. Yes, even the homeless.

Wait, I've got something for you to read. It's about a group of people just like you, who went and formed a society in which they lived the values that you preach. They welcomed anyone who needed a home, and didn't handle money for years at a time. It's totally worth the read. http://pastebin.com/F0WGGewg

This is such surface-level thinking. You can't just take the homeless and put them in these houses. They'd trash them. Piss on the carpets, take a sledgehammer to the porcelain commodes, kick holes in the walls. Then where would we be?

You want the whole country to be like San Francisco? Shit on the streets, needles everywhere, honest citizens can't walk down the street without crazy people screaming at them. Wait, don't answer this one.

Will NATO Die Aged 70? Is NATO experiencing a temporary crisis comparable to those that have already punctuated its history, or are we helpless observers of a slow agony that will lead to the final death of the organization? by Chipit in WorldPolitics

Well, they literally grew up with free US protection. This has led them to take it for granted. Does a fish notice the water?

Moreover it feels great to sit on top your high horse and say you're more morally correct than the Americans. Boy the Germans fucking love that. Accept all the benefits while shitting on your provider.

If they actually get NATO to disband, which I personally think should happen, they're going to be very surprised when they have to pay for their own defense. I think nobody thought that far. They just despise us and want the emotional release of hating us.

Huh? Trump? Trump's not the problem. Europeans are the problem. They don't believe in NATO. You really don't know this?

They won't fund their militaries to the bare minimum amount. Only 2.7% of European troops are trained and equipped to a sufficient degree to be deployed in combat. In general, Europe depends on the US for defense and to protect their interests. Simply put, Germany doesn't trust America I just don't see the point of NATO any more. If we are really as untrusted as the Russians, then WTF are we doing there?

And at least half in Germany, France and Italy are unwilling to use military force to defend other NATO allies against Russian aggression. The biggest issue with Germany is that Germans don't believe in NATO. In fact, most of the population does not believe in military alliances at all. And note the support before Trump took office. Almost the same. So, no, I don't think that is from Trump.

Europeans generally expect the U.S. to use military force to defend a NATO ally from a Russian attack, but they are less supportive of using their own armed forces under the same circumstances.

NATO means so much to the 25% of American children living in poverty even though their parents work full time for minimum wage. How about we cut back on NATO, tell the Eurofags to pay for their own defense, and spend our money on them instead.

Here's a great longread on the situation.

If you want me to speculate, it could be because the better things are for blacks, the more of them will vote for Trump. The Dems are terrified that blacks will learn that they can escape the plantation and vote for whomever they like. The poorer they are the better.
