He has some points. So does a broken clock, or a San Francisco sidewalk.

It's not that rare really, look at anenome who was pretty much truly wrong 100% of the time. look at Jaz who's racism clouds his judgement so badly it's all he can do is claim he's persecuted on a regular basis. Not everything blackz says is wrong but good God, he may as well call himself a liberal with just how important skin color is to him above anything else.

My understanding of TEDx is that it is almost completely unregulated. There is a big difference between TED talks and TEDx talks.

TEDx events are independent events that mimic the big TED conferences. They can be organized by anyone who obtains a free TED license, as long as they agree to follow certain principles and rules. The rules:
  • Recipients must not be associated with a controversial or extremist group, and cannot use TEDx to promote religious or political beliefs, or to sell commercial goods.
  • Speakers must be filmed and can’t speak for more than 18 minutes each. (There are other rules regarding the format, as well.)
  • TEDx organizers cannot charge for tickets, though TED makes some exceptions for groups that need help with production costs. Organizers who want to charge a fee (which can’t exceed $100) must seek permission from TED.

Anyone can speak at a TEDx event, as long as the event organizers want them there. TEDx isn't TED.

You two think TED would want their name associated with pedophilia? Instead of making excuses for these sick fucks call it out for what it is.

If the description for that video is correct, this is one that TED ended up pulling and citing for copyright infringement...so no, I don't think TED wants to be associated with pedophilia.

My point is that TEDx talks aren't officially sanctioned, sponsored by, or run by TED Conferences. They're all run by individual people or organizations. In this case, your qualm should be with the University of Wurzburg, seeing as how they're the organization that held the TEDx talk and allowed this person to speak.

Virtually anyone can acquire a TEDx license, which is why these independently run conferences aren't even remotely as legitimate as the actual annual TED Conference. This is precisely why I brought this up; TEDx is not TED. Each TEDx is independently run and organized.

You kids are hysterical. Actually, I shouldn't call you kids because that's SO far from the truth.

Trump and Putin put on a fireworks show yesterday that is equal to or even crazier to the Upside Down™ - and not a f*cking word outta the lot of ya.

Not. A. Word.

And like Trump - you asshats decide to change the subject quickly into "Pedophilia". How convenient.

Your Russian ruse is showing comrades!

Good quote from The Worst Case Scenario Has Been Obvious For A While.

Quote:
There is no reasonable explanation for the simple facts we see other than that Russia has some kind of hold over President Trump.

I know that sounds wild and I have a very hard time sometimes quite believing it myself. But it’s so overwhelmingly obvious that we need to get real with ourselves and recognize what is happening. I don’t know what the specific details are. I don’t know whether Russia has some compromising information on the President, whether they have enticed him with personal enrichment. I truly don’t know. But none of the standard explanations — truculence, trolling, anger over questioning the legitimacy of his election — none of them remotely add up as an explanation. In the future, when we know more details, we will have a difficult time explaining how any serious people continued to think there could be an innocent explanation.

And not to beat a dead Hillary horse here, but I believe that everything that is happening today was talked about during the election. Everything she said in this clip has come to pass.

Even the fine folks at FOX NEWS slammed Trump for his press conference with Putin.

Even Walmart got into the action with this little diddy. But those on the right, living in their trailers, they cried real tears when they saw it on the racks.

Actually, the subject of this thread is "Liberals Gone Wild", not "Trump Loves Putin". And if you bother to scroll back, you would see a number of topics discussed. And, I would say that discussion is technically off topic. This isn't "Conservatives gone wild".

But if you want to talk about wild unproven conspiracy theories well, hey, knock yourself out. In fact, if you don't want the subject to change then don't post to a general discussion thread. Make your own. But don't be surprised if others don't engage in your delusion.

Liberals: Discuss the things that interest me and not the things that interest you.

Hey, that also fits the thread! I guess you are on-topic after all!

I was wondering when someone was going to bring this press conference up.

Tough talk from the broad that sold Russia materials to make nuclear weapons with. Dumbshits like yourself aren't fooling anyone, we get it you hate America. You can leave at any time, perhaps you could go live in Londonkastan and be surrounded by the effects of the policies you liberals so love.

Another Russian Shoe Just Dropped—and It's Tied to the NRA

Maria Butina was allegedly a very busy unregistered lobbyist on behalf of the Russian Federation.

She was arrested yesterday and charged by the DoJ as a Russian spy. She helped to launder Russian money through the NRA for the Trump campaign.

He apparently "misspoke" yesterday when he flat-out said he trusted Putin's denial.
