I think Trump has a fundamental misunderstanding of how things work in Britain.
In America, there's a sense that the Presidency is sort of a meritocracy -- that anyone can rise through the ranks and reach the nation's highest office, if they pull up their pants and work hard enough. As a result, there's the idea that you should 'respect the office, even if you don't respect the man'. We just don't have that over here. Politics is associated with the aristocracy, and the aristocracy is fair game for ridicule: it's the ultimate example of a joke punching upwards, not down. Mockery of our leadership -- even between our leadership; you should see the shit that goes down at PMQ sometimes -- is part and parcel of being British.
So when Trump says shit like 'I think they like me [in Britain]', it makes you wonder just what an insular little bubble of delusion he lives in.
Mr. Trump, the UK largely thinks you're a bellend.
but remember, Canada burned the White House down #neverforget1814
Edit: Yes i am aware that the British burned it down but as always it is a joke on what President Stupid said on an earlier occasion as see in in this news article (https://edition.cnn.com/2018/06/06/politics/war-of-1812-donald-trump-justin-trudeau-tariff/index.html) thanks u/MovinSlowlyer for the comment on the comment
Dennis Rodman was just on CNN where he was promoting a marijuana crypto currency while wearing a MAGA hat, and starts out by calling the leader of NK Kim Un-Jong. Rodman ended up crying, and Chris Cuomo was interviewing him while making “why is this my job, please make it end” facial expressions. It was the weirdest thing ever, we are truly living in an alternate timeline.
Edit: clip 1 & clip 2 & the full interview
Edit 2: “Kim Un-Jong” at the 0:25 mark of the first clip, for those who missed it.
More Recent Update:
>A lawyer just asked Rick Gates if the special counsel's team has interviewed him
>From CNN's Elizabeth Landers
>Paul Manafort’s defense counsel asked Rick Gates if he had been interviewed about his time on the Trump Campaign by the special counsel's office.
>Prosecutor Greg Andres objected to the question before Gates could answer.
>The judge asked prosecutors and defense counsel to come to the bench where they spoke for five minutes before the judge called a 30-minute recess.
Not too kindly mate, but to be fair that sort of follows him around though, but of course "they like me there"
>Solomon Lartey, who said he was abruptly terminated from his job as a records management analyst in March, said he spent at least several hours each day with tape piecing together the torn letters, memos and invitations Trump cast aside.
>"We started getting these shredded papers, notes and everything," Lartey told CNN in an interview on Monday. "We used to have to piece together all of these torn papers, and we weren't supposed to tell anybody."
>"I guess they didn't want to get it out," said Lartey, who had worked in the White House since the Clinton administration. "When (chief of staff John) Kelly came in, they were leery of the leaks."
Maas isn't wrong--the days in which policies out of the White House can be unconditionally trusted is over. And the Germans were patient (to a fault) with the Trump administration. Merkel could tolerate a few instances of direct personal disrespect, but when your supposedly greatest ally actively attempts to undermine your coalition government's unity in parliament, foment right-wing movements in Europe, at some point you have to draw a line.
CNN did a bunch of work on the slave trade happening in Libya.
It's not the only one that is well documented. The most notorious stories involve brick kilns, in various countries, and Thai shrimp industry.
I hope the buffoon realises that trade wars are bad for all parties involved.
But maybe he realises this since Trump has said he wouldn't hesitate to use an economic depression for personal benefit..
>sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy
So yeah, Trump will not hesitate to cause another Depression.
As a left-wing liberal who doesn't like Trump, credit where credit is due. If Trump's unorthodox methods lead to long-term improvements, he deserves to be commended. I don't care about the man, I care what he does. If he does the right thing, I'll like him. If he doesn't, I won't.
Edit: For my fellow liberals, CNN reports that South Korea credits Trump for the current negotiations.
Where did you find his "sources"? You say from /r/politics but I'm not sure what you mean by this. OP did not provide any sources.
Why did you mention the huffpo source and not any other source on the article? It wasn't the only one they used. They references several sources but you seem to focus on just the single one. It's almost like you're walking people down a path to fit a narrative.
For the huffpo article why did you not mention the other sources? The Hamilton 68 source just seems cherry picked and disregards the rest of the sources. Arc Digital (Medium) or WaPo were also used as a source that correlated with the information from hamilton 68.
>Now with that said, on the Hamilton68 site in the last 48 hours #walkaway has been used by "Kremlin related" accounts 131 times (for reference those same accounts have used #worldcup 51 times in the same time frame). That puts it 3rd on the list of accounts related to foreign meddling.
From the HuffPo article you linked
"Amplification of tweets by bots does not necessarily mean content is created by Kremlin-linked operators. But bots typically grossly exaggerate Twitter traffic — and influence — by replicating chosen messages tens of thousands of times."
As for the Hamilton 68 site I spent a minute looking up who created the site and found the author to be Clint Watts. who is a former FBI special agent and "a fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and senior fellow at the Center for Cyber and Homeland Security at George Washington University"
This post feels like it's trying awfully hard to walk people down a path to make a very specific point. It completely ignores all other sources in the articles. It also brings up salon as a source which I'm not sure where they pulled that from in the first place.
Which of course was nothing to do with being a veteran or disabled, and everything to do with Trump;

I read about a small indie game made where you played a black women an you were avoiding people touching your hair, and wouldn't you know it, in the comments there were a bunch of kids asking when they would release videogames that were "made for white people". Some people love to see themself as the victim
Here is my entry for the latest contest!
Context: Soon the World cup will start, and Brazil's first game will be in the 17 of june, but there are a lot of riots in this little big country, even more so after the trucker's strike.
All in all, I did pretty well in the contest, placing 25th. This was so far the most artistic comic I made, it is basically one panel but it took around 5 hours to make... I need to get gud.
Congratulações to everyone who participated, especially /u/Blackfire853, for his first hussar wings, out of the many more to come for our angry Irish mod.
It reminds me of that quote from Obama to Sarkozy when discussing having to deal with Netanyahu.
>"I can't stand him. He's a liar," Sarkozy said of Netanyahu
> Obama replied, "You're tired of him; what about me? I have to deal with him every day," the site reported.
Looking at it now, it kinda makes sense why Trump and Netanyahu get on so well. Both seem completely insufferable.
> I sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy
He didn't... did he?
> the white supremacists and Nazis got all the screen time.
That doesn't always happen, some times the "Nazis" don't get any screen time at all.

...for internet users it's known as click bait, in traditional media it's called headlines. There's a journalistic saying: "If dog bites a man that isn't news, if a man bites a dog that's news." even though one is far more common then the other.
Mueller recruited an all-star squad of the best lawyers in the country. Seriously, these guys deserve trading cards.
Though Robert H. Richards IV was convicted of rape (his toddler daughter and later alleged he sexually abused his son), the wealthy <strong>heir to the du Pont family fortune</strong> was spared prison by a Delaware court in 2009 <strong>because he would "not fare well" behind bars</strong>, according to court documents CNN obtained Tuesday.
Ehsan Abdulaziz: Saudi millionaire who said he <strong>'accidentally tripped and penetrated'</strong> teenage girl cleared of rape. (he said <strong>his penis might have been poking out of his underwear</strong> when he fell on the teen. And his semen and DNA was found inside the young woman, but <strong>he said it was possible he had semen on his hands</strong> from having sex with a 24-year-old earlier.)
Police officer was struck and killed by a Ferrari (estimated speed at around 170km/h (106mph) driven by <strong>Red Bull heir</strong> (in 2012), but he missed every court appointment because he was busy or didn't feel well. He still hasn't gone to court.
He's one of the early pioneers of bringing singapore hawker food to a wider audience, and he's been a big advocate of setting up hawker culture (he had plans to build a 'hawker center in NYC)
I loved his no nonsense travel shows, and he really care more about the people and food than just whatever touristy things a particular country had to offer, which make him fantastic for a travel host.
I loved his videos like the layover or parts unknown, which he did in SG as well. The Singapore episode for layover is really fantastic for tourists on short trips since it jams places to visit and dining places to 24 hours.
Here are some of his episodes on SG:
> The manufacturer of an amusement park ride that malfunctioned at the Ohio State Fair in July said on Sunday that the deadly incident was caused by "excessive corrosion."
> Albert Kroon, product manager for the Dutch manufacturer, said in a statement that an investigation at the scene in Columbus determined that "excessive corrosion on the interior of the gondola support beam dangerously reduced the beam's wall thickness over the years." The ride was 18 years old.
Internal corrosion sounds like something that might go unnoticed for some time.
You say this as if laws weren't created specifically to target minority communities. Nixon aides have stated on record that the war on drugs was started to lock up black people (also anti-vietnam war people, although the latter became a moot point while the former continued for a long time).

I've seen this before.
5 years ago in rural Kentucky, a 5-year old accidentally shot and killed his 2-year old sister with his "My First Rifle" .22. And then their grandma said that "It was God's will. It was her time to go, I guess. I just know she's in heaven right now and I know she's in good hands with the Lord."
A bigger fun is that Kim was met by Singapore PM personally: Kim Jong Un arrives in Singapore for historic summit; <strong>meets Singapore PM</strong>
Judging from their protests at what are being taught in schools (that Islam exists for example), it does really seem that they think that if a subject is being taught in school then it means that the pupils instantly become mindless slaves of that subject.
It should've happened years ago. Plastic is such a nuisance here in Mumbai. Beaches, sewers, garbage bins, roads, etc. are all littered with disgusting little death bags that won't decompose for years. The ban on polythene a few years ago worked well, and now the ban on plastic is a welcome step forward. You'd realise its not extreme at all if you could see it for yourself. (Google it, you can)
Here are examples of two of Mumbais more popular beaches, Versova and Juhu.
Versova went through a dramatic transformation after activists and volunteers took it upon themselves to clean the beach. It was a great moment for the city, but, it was short lived.
People here want to do good. Nobody really wants to litter just cause it's fun. But the people are so poor sometimes that trash bins are stolen. It's a real goddamn issue. So it's ok for people in follow up comments to call it a filthy and spoilt society, but it's just not true.

Building things takes a lot of time, destroying them doesn't. This goes for buildings, material things, and even human relationships. Donald Trump is successfully destroying 80 years of post-WW2 American hegemony, alliances, commerce and even diplomacy. In less than a year Trump has already managed to make 60&#37; of the U.S. career diplomats quit their jobs many of them in shame and disgust and join the private sector. Think about it 60% in one year (the report is from late 2017), when Trump is gone these people will already have new lives, new projects and compromises, they will not go back to the public sector.
Like this guy who raped his own toddler? He didn't even go to jail, he is rich after all and prison would not suit him well.
>I have just returned from a trip to Europe. Across Europe, there was not a single word of respect for Trump. The constant refrain was extreme puzzlement and deep consternation. How did America fall so far so fast? What do we need to do to survive?
The US has probably never before had a delusional President, one who speaks gibberish, insults those around him including his closest associates, and baffles the world. By instinct, we strive to make sense of Trump's nonsense, implicitly assuming some hidden strategy. There is none.
Snopes says the NYT claims are true.
>As of May 2018, there were more than 10,000 unaccompanied children in United States government immigration detention centers.
>New data reviewed by The New York Times shows that more than 700 children have been taken from adults claiming to be their parents since October, including more than 100 children under the age of 4. The data was prepared by the Office of Refugee Resettlement, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services that takes custody of children who have been removed from migrant parents.
>Senior officials at the Department of Homeland Security, which processes migrants at the border, initially denied that the numbers were so high. But after they were confirmed to The Times by three federal officials who work closely with these cases, a spokesman for the health and human services department on Friday acknowledged in a statement that there were “approximately 700.”
Be wary the right has gone to extreme lengths to muddy the waters and hide the fact what they're doing is inhumane and immoral.
>That practice “amounts to arbitrary and unlawful interference in family life, and is a serious violation of the rights of the child,” Ravina Shamdasani, a spokeswoman for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, based in Geneva, told reporters.
The UN is correct here. Trump will have to argue he's allowed to go to these extremes.
This is all because Trump appointee Kelly admitted wants to "DETER" immigration

> Donald Trump in 2006: I 'sort of hope' real estate market tanks
> "If there is a bubble burst, as they call it, you know you can make a lot of money," Trump said in the 2006 audio book, "How to Build a Fortune." "If you're in a good cash position -- which I'm in a good cash position today -- then people like me would go in and buy like crazy."
They did implement them, but it took until half way through March (a month and a half past the deadline), and that was after saying that sanctions weren’t needed because the threat of sanctions was enough, which is bullshit.
In any case, what's the point of a deadline if there's no form of punishment if you go over it?
Edit: Hang on, someone has told me that these may be unrelated due to the nature of the requirements for the sanctions that got a vote of 419-3 and 98-2 and Trump signed. I'm looking it up, but if that's true then the original claim is true, even though separate sanctions were enacted.
Edit 2: Right, looking at the bill, the sections specifying who Trump was to sanction are 224, 231, 232, and 233 (as described in section 235) all reference "with respect to any person that the President determines—" etc... and not any specific people or businesses or entities etc...
If I'm misunderstanding something, or just missing something, someone please reference an article or something that will point me in the right direction.
In any case, the point about them running past the deadline by a month and a half stands either way.
> was not involved in ANY part of the rescue
Bullshit, he made the resuce happen. The guy isnt a diver, he is a pretty expert caver, he was there the first day the kids were missing because he had planned a cave trip, goes there all the time and lives nearby.
HE CONVINCED thais to call in expert divers he explicitly and urgently named. Then he helped by providing clear maps, directions and had the correct first guess to boys locations. Fuck off.
EDIT: Just to summarize how bullshit this was:
It's stunning that we still buy into the notion that the anti-sjw and anti-pc people on the right genuinely care about free speech.
A few days ago it came out that Donald Trump literally urged the FBI director to prosecute journalists. It's a terrifying and outrageous attack on the 1A and fundemental democratic principles, but it completely flew under the radar because he does this all the time.
And guess what? All the conservatives and 'classical liberals' who always circlejerks about the left being against free speech didn't give a single shit and will continue to support him. Yes, there is a clear threat to free speech, but it's not coming from college kids or spooky political correctness. Talking about "SJWs" and political correctness as they're even remotely a big a threat as the actual authoritarians in power are, is just flat out dishonesty and propaganda.
indeed, (i love the fact the press pool keep asking the question)
I've had a similar feeling from the get-go. Either all these "Patriots" are anonymous cowards who never get out from behind their computer screens...
Or they become dangerous domestic terrorists and murderers.
I remember reading about this black mother who was having a seizure at home and when the paramedics arrived, they refused to take her to the hospital because they thought she couldn't afford the ride.
She ended up dying and now the grandmother has to take care of all of her daughters children.
Racism and healthcare truly fuck over the minorities more than anyone else.

2 black dudes walked into a Starbucks and just sat at a table. They didn't really do anything and then one of them asked to use the bathroom. He was told he needs to order for him to be allowed to do that and he refused. Apparently they got into some argument and the staff asked the two dudes to leave because they were being confrontational. The dudes refused to leave and the police were called. The police then repeatedly asked them to comply with the staff's request that they leave, and they still refused. They were escorted out of the building for trespassing.
Retards on every social media are using this benign story as some sort of comparison to fucking segregationist times.
tl;dr - He won't get out even after serving his time (instead will be committed until the docs say he's good to go), the buyers are being prosecuted too, one has been sentenced already.
According to the stats I'm finding, women are 14.2% of the military, and among the top ranks 7.1% are women. Do you have any data to suggest you are "absolutely correct"?
I'm seeing some vague claims about smashed windows and the like, but nothing that suggests that people in antifa are "more radicalized" than neonazis. Also, nothing suggesting that people in antifa have murdered anyone, whereas we have documented evidence of white supremacists murdering protesters using ISIS-like tactics.
I remember reading sometime last month that Rosenstein and Wray have raised concerns about congressional leaking, thought to be about Nunes. I've read in in an article related to the special briefings being set up, but I have no sources found yet.
Also, Rosenstein had this to say last year:
> Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Sunday anyone responsible for leaking classified information could face federal prosecution -- including people in the White House and members of Congress.
> Asked on "Fox News Sunday" about the possibility, Rosenstein said the Justice Department would go after "anybody who breaks the law."
"We're going to devote more resources, re-evaluate our procedures and make sure we investigate every one of those leaks," Rosenstein said.

>On an appearance on The Howard Stern Show in 2005, published on Sunday by CNN, Trump described going backstage at the beauty pageants while the contestants were undressed. “Before a show, I’ll go backstage and everyone’s getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” he said. “You know, I’m inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good.”
>“You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody okay?’” he continued. “And you see these incredible looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that.”
>According to interviews BuzzFeed News conducted with former Miss Teen USA contestants, Trump did just that in 1997. Four women who were competing in the pageant that year — including one who was 15 at the time — recalled that Trump walked into the dressing area while they were changing.
>One of them called it “shocking” and “creepy” and said she rushed to cover herself. Another recalled that the contestants were “just scrambling to grab stuff… whatever garments they had.”
>Another called it “really shocking,” saying, “We were all naked.”
>“I remember putting on my dress really quick because I was like, ‘Oh my god, there’s a man in here,’” Mariah Billado, former Miss Vermont Teen USA, said.
>Billado remembered Trump saying something like, “Don’t worry, ladies, I’ve seen it all before.” Another who was 17 at the time recalled that it seemed Trump felt “it was his given right… because he owned the pageant.”
And of course, here's the audio of him saying that: https://edition.cnn.com/2016/10/08/politics/trump-on-howard-stern/index.html
Edit: I forgot to point out that this article was published in 2016. We've known how shitty of a human being Trump is for a long time.
Putting them in mental asylums is standard treatment for political dissidents in China. It's often worse than being in prison. I believe reporting this case internationally may have saved her life, but now she'll slowly rot away there, and they might still kill her later. People tend to die in these places under circumstances.
You sure of that? According to this article:
> The Tham Luang Nang Non caves are known locally as off-limits, a dangerous place where parents warn their children not to go into, especially during monsoon season.
In a CNN analysis, the South Korean foreign minister says Trump deserves credit. Australia's Prime Minister credits both President Trump and President Xi of China.
Prepare to celebrate a indictment headline soon, because today was the turning point:
>According to an FBI statement, Flynn communicated with then-Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak after being asked by a senior Trump transition official to find out how foreign governments stood on a coming UN Security Council resolution about Israel.
TRUMP HIMSELF TOLD FLYNN TO CONTACT RUSSIANS!
>"While it is unclear who Flynn himself is prepared to name, Fox News has been told by a former senior intelligence officer with knowledge of Trump transition activities that then-President-Elect Trump directed Flynn during that period to contact the Russians -- while also directing him and his team to contact 12 other countries."
THIS STRAIGHT UP PROVES THAT TRUMP COLLUDED WITH RUSSIA

>"I was told that buses full (of children) were taken away before I arrived. That was one of my concerns, that essentially, when you have to give lengthy notice, you end up a little bit of a show rather than seeing what's really going on in these centers."
Given that Trump's base doesn't seem to believe/care about any of this, is there any evidence that "undecided" or moderate voters care?
I guess I don't want to discount women coming forward, whether it has any effect in November or not, but I'm curious about the potential election consequences.
For those who wonder why this isn't #1 on r/politics
It was initially reported by the intercept
and then picked up by cnn after even democrats called for an FBI investigation
The initial report got buried in the post McCabe firing heat and in that day by the news that McCabe greenlighted an investigation on AG Session.
The latter report got buried by Trumps new lawyer being a weird medival history guy from nowhere and the firing of the head of the VA and the subsequential appointment of his personal doctor.
That being said, I do believe this is big. And the FBI should just ask Kushner if he had the direct order from the POTUS to disclose those classified informations to the crown prince. If not he committed multiple crimes and surely faces jail charges...
Not 'possibly'. He was instrumental in coordinating and organizing the forces that implemented the rescue
> In the early days of the search operation, Unsworth said he quickly realized that outside expertise was required, and advised the Thai authorities to bring in specialist cave divers who had dealt with similar rescues in the past.
> "It was a race against time," he said. "They needed world class divers and that's what we got."
> He was the first one to suggest calling for help from Volanthen, Stanton and Robert Harper -- who arrived a few days into the search on June 27.

By the way, in February Judge Curiel ruled that the Trump administration has the authority to waive a host of environmental laws to begin construction of the border wall.
So even in a case which was directly related to the wall - the reason Trump claimed Curiel can't be neutral towards him in any case - Curiel ruled in Trump's favor. Trump then celebrated his "Big legal win" on Twitter and didn't mention who was the judge.
Ja, dagens unge har mulighet til å være langt bedre informerte og er mindre sårbare for indoktrinering enn tidligere generasjoner.

"You understand what I'm saying? We knew we couldn't make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin. And then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities," Ehrlichman said. "We could arrest their leaders. raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did."
Unfortunately they've just been downgraded from "endangered" to "threatened". We can thank Libertarians for that, who have sued the government in order to remove the slow speed zones. Apparently there's enough of them now that it's fine to run them over with speedboats.

> Two Florida lawmakers, Sen. Jeff Brandes and Rep. Larry Ahern, have introduced legislation to study the effectiveness of boating speed zones.
Most of the world has legislation on incandescents, attempting to limit their use or outright banning them. In the EU, for example, they were phased out in 2012.
The US had federal legislation that was going to make them obsolete, but a rider in the 2015 spending bill killed that.

He remembered the cake though.
>"I was sitting at the table. We had finished dinner. We're now having dessert. And we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen and President Xi was enjoying it," Trump said, before telling interviewer Maria Bartiromo he was told the strike was ready to go.
>Trump added that he told Xi that the United States had "just fired 59 missiles ... heading to Iraq," incorrectly identifying the country he was striking when relaying the story to Bartiromo.

>as for white Americans vs Mexicans, how is that racial? I thought both are classified as white.
Jews are 'white' but discrimination against them by the NAZIS was clearly racial, no? Racial and ethnic discrimination differentiates individuals on the basis of real and perceived racial and ethnic differences.
In other words, whether or not you can define Mexican as a 'race' is irrelevant: if they look different and people are discriminating against them based on their looks, people of Mexican descent are the victims of racial and ethnic discrimination.
>Mexicans who are in the country legally are not fans of illegal immigrants either. So it's more of Americans vs illegals rather than a racial/ethnic thing.
American citizens of Mexican descent are being harassed by Trump supporters. Do you agree that this racist behavior is being fuelled by Trump's rhetoric?
>Trump ... doesn't promote fake news with the goal of stirring up hatred ... you can find examples of Trump promoting some false facts too, like the recent 63,000 comment, yet he appears to be simply misinformed
Trump is the biggest liar in the history of the presidency but you're okay with it because you perceive this to be the result of incompetence rather than malice? That's not a real high bar you've set there.
Trump will ask athletes who kneel during anthem to recommend people for pardoning
>"I'm going to ask them to recommend to me people who were unfairly treated," [..] "What I'm going to do is, I'm going to say to them instead of talk ... I am going to ask all of those people to recommend to me -- because that's what they're protesting -- people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system," Trump said. "And I understand that."
Good idea? With Kushner working on prison reform, and the recent pardoning of Kardashian's candidate, maybe Trump is serious about reducing racial injustice. Or at least wants to give the impression he is.
Even if the athletes say these pardoning are just symbolic and not fixing the bigger issue, it might at least force them to outline the systemic changes they want to see.
A criticism I have with BLM is a lack of clear and actionable goals. Maybe the aim of activism is just to raise awareness and let someone else figure out the policy, but that way it's very easy for the goal posts to shift.
fired? he didn't even get arrested / questioned.
>The local district attorney hasn't made a decision about what action to take,

Flint's problem is being dealt with, but surprisingly it takes time to replace a cities entire piping. Most BS, pretend to care, fake woke thing people can say at this point.
The water is below the limit for lead at this point.
The Nuremberg Defense is spreading. It's only a matter of time before she tries to use it. Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan used the Nuremberg Defense yesterday on CNN during an interview with the monotone shouter, Wolf Blitzer:
> Wolf Blitzer: "Is this new 'zero tolerance' policy that the president has supported, that the attorney General announced... is it humane?"
> Thomas Homan: "I think... I think it's the law."
> Blitzer: "It may be the law. It's the policy. But is it humane?"
> Homan: "I think it's the law and I'm law enforcement. I must follow the law."
Of course, Blitzer then let him off the hook. CNN is such an awful network. They had the acting director of ICE refusing to say whether or not what he was doing was humane and, instead, putting up the Nuremberg Defense, and Wolf fucking Blitzer didn't follow up. Unbelievable.
The kid couldn't hear the operator. The operator even called the number back but it went straight to voicemail. The kid was calling 9-11 through voice commands via Siri as he did not have physical access to his phone. Even if the cops had found him, he may have already been deceased as asphyxiation does not take long. A rather tragic accident.
Edit: Didn't have much details when this was posted 12 hours ago.
It's fantastic news because it's way less biased towards Republicans than it used to be. But it's still biased towards them.
She's pretty good at summarizing everything during breaks and at the end of the day.
Her latest tweet was interesting, showing that the prosecutors made a filing arguing that Manafort's extravagant lifestyle is important and relevant to the case: Here it is
CNN has this live update
I respect your scepticism, if you are interested in the story you could check out the author's twitter: https://twitter.com/NatSecGeek
Or this CNN article referencing the hacked messages in 2017:
"A Ukrainian human rights attorney representing the victims of mass police shootings in Kiev in 2014 has asked prosecutors to investigate what are purported to be the hacked text messages of one of Paul Manafort's daughters, saying the texts point to possible influence Manafort had with Ukraine's president during that period."
"You know he has killed people in Ukraine? Knowingly," Andrea Manafort allegedly wrote of her father in March 2015"
"Do you know whose strategy that was to cause that, to send those people out and get them slaughtered."
"He has no moral or legal compass," Andrea allegedly wrote about her father earlier as part of the same conversation.

I hate to disagree with you, but the first Pride Parades have a lot of very normal looking people looking and being normal.

Yeah well.. Climate change.. If Ice cold Sweden can burn.

They were clearly phishing attacks. At least 2 of the "hackers" have even been arrested and at least 1 has pled guilty.
It's right on Wikipedia
This was at the end of the investigation. It was only one person she killed in a 4 car accident, apologies for getting that detail wrong.
Accident happened in February 2015, Jenner came out 2 months later in April.
“"I thought of reporting him to military police and to the district attorney, but this was going to mark me as a scorned woman," Yildirim said, according to the source. "Since I was going to get a bad reputation I decided to clean my honor and acted on killing him."
“The source said Yildirim went to a health clinic a while ago seeking an abortion, but health workers told her she was 14 weeks pregnant and abortion was not an option.
In Turkey, abortion is allowed during the first 10 weeks of pregnancy, after which it is permitted only to save the life or health of the mother or in cases of fetal impairment, Human Rights Watch said.
At her hearing, Yildirim said she doesn't want to keep the baby and that she is ready to die, the source said. The public prosecutor's office has ordered a medical examination to decide whether Yildirim may have an abortion and to assess her mental stability, the source said.”
“Yildirim's father, Zekeriya Yildiz, told DHA his daughter did not report the alleged abuse to anyone in the family.
"If she would have told us, we would have taken other precautions," he said.”
Trump: "You guys know what this represents? Maybe it's the calm before the storm."
Reporter: "What's the storm?"
Trump: "It could be ... the calm, the calm before the storm."
Reporter: "Iran? ISIS? What storm, Mr. President?"
Trump: "We have the world's great military people in this room, I will tell you that. And uh, we're gonna have a great evening, thank you all for coming."
Reporter: "What storm, Mr. President?"
Trump: "You'll find out."
Trump does not specify the legality of immigration in this video when he “warned the EU” about immigration. He mentions the word about a dozen times and makes it sound to me like he just wants all countries to close their borders completely.
My new ironically favorite thing Trump has ever done - Trump invokes War of 1812 in testy call with Trudeau over tariffs
>According to the sources, Trudeau pressed Trump on how he could justify the tariffs as a "national security" issue. In response, Trump quipped to Trudeau, "Didn't you guys burn down the White House?" referring to the War of 1812.
Also have to love CNN's reporting on this:
>The problem with Trump's comments to Trudeau is that British troops burned down the White House during the War of 1812. Historians note the British attack on Washington was in retaliation for the American attack on York, Ontario, in territory that eventually became Canada, which was then a British colony.
Yes, that's the problem with Trump's comment. That he didn't understand the full context of British colonial forces counter attacking the US after a failed invasion. Not that he's invoking a long forgotten 200 year old war that has nothing to do with anything any more.
I'm nervous as hell about this update:
>Friday morning has had a strange, secretive beginning.
>Lawyers from both sides have huddled with Judge T.S. Ellis twice with the white noise machine obscuring their conversations.
>The jury has not been called yet. Meanwhile, Manafort has been all smiles, and also spent several minutes in whispered conversation with his lawyers.

> I'm surprised he lasted this long with all the scandals
Perhaps it was because Pruitt was the only member of Trump's cabinet qualified to be AG? It was widely speculated that Trump was keeping Pruitt around in case he decided to fire Sessions, swap in Pruitt, then order Pruitt to shut down the Mueller probe without having to get a new AG confirmed through Congress (because they would probably block any nominee hostile to the Mueller investigation). The whole maneuver could be executed in just a few hours, blindsiding Congress and the courts.
With Pruitt gone, Trump will probably have to go through the confirmation process in order to replace Sessions which makes it much more difficult to shut down the Mueller investigation. He could still go full Saturday Night Massacre and fire everyone down the line until a Bork agrees to follow his orders, the Nixon parallels would be extremely damaging to Trump's credibility.
>do people just get so used to skirting the rules that they forget what's ethical and what's not?
I think we both know that Pruitt didn't 'forget' what was ethical and was was not? The 14 investigations into his ethical conduct are bad, but Pruitt's latest scandal was straight-up illegal and he knew it. Keeping a secret, off the books calendar to hide his activities is falsification of government records, a felony.
His other scandals are serious and definitely fireable offenses, but this latest allegation is very illegal and would probably have triggered impeachment if Pruitt hadn't resigned.
>Americans are so paranoid of basically everything these days
Yes, because Europe on the other hand is
A bastion of freedom and peace
Where nobody should be paranoid...
Seeing as we're talking about NATO again, I feel this needs to be said;
>"The communique is clear," Macron said. "It reaffirms a commitment to 2% in 2024. That is all"
No 4% or 2% within January..
Daddy literally had printouts of that map that he handed to visitors so he could brag about the election
Highschool entry level statistics sure is hard for boomers.
I'm talking about Richard Stanton, the one who is actually listed in all the news articles as one of the professional divers who performed the rescue, and who is in all the photos of the rescue team.
I think you're talking about Vern Unsworth, who is cited in all the news articles for his inflammatory comments, who is a retired insurance salesman and cave diver living in Thailand, and who had some involvement in getting the other British divers involved and providing information about the caves but who was not actually involved as a diver in the rescue operation.
Alternatively you could be referring to Narongsak Osatanakorn, who is part of the Thai authorities, who has also stated that the sub "was not practical for our mission". But there's a lot of room for interpretation in that comment (the sub was, after all, a backup option), and he was not the person most directly involved with the diving part of the operation so I would still give more weight to the divers.
I could be wrong though, but in that case I would appreciate a source.
