Sinistar isn't doing a good job or he would have asked who the hell Ron Rosenberg is in my meme.

It's Rod Rosenstein who is facing possible impeachment for perverting the course of justice. But it seems TDS blinds them to the details.

I have no idea who Ron Rosenberg might be. I figured if it were close enough to the real deal a progressive's eyes would just glaze over like a regular cult follower when they see something they don't want to acknowledge and ignore it. And I was apparently right.

This is why they were forced to dial up the Marxism to try and break America. They knew what was going on before we did.

Even the NYT wrote about thousands of WMDs being found in Iraq after the invasion.

The rationale for invading Iraq was as follows:
To remove a regime that developed and used weapons of mass destruction, that harbored and supported terrorists, committed outrageous human rights abuses, and defied the just demands of the United Nations and the world.

Are you claiming that any of the above was not true?

This isn't and wasn't fake, it's rather well-documented.

Saddam made the admissions in videotaped interviews with George L. Piro, an FBI agent who was assigned by the FBI with the CIA’s approval to try to develop the former dictator’s cooperation.
You may notice a certain part of that turned out to be inaccurate, per the NYT.

There was a plan, it was rather simple. The problem was the experts at the time massively miscalculated certain moves, like dismantling the Iraqi military immediately after the invasion.

Is this why Obama sent troops back into Iraq, surged Afghanistan, bombed Libya, entered Syria, and more?

I doubt this trade war stuff is going to go our way though, but I also don't know if it will escalate to a full on recession. The economy is certainly overheating right now though.
No, things don't always look great in the short-term. That much should be obvious. Tax cuts, as in letting people keep more of the money they earn, isn't anything like raiding the cookie jar. What an insane view. You honestly believe that people are essentially stealing by not being forced to surrender more of the money they earn. That's horrible.

If you think Bush robbed the treasury, wait til you find out about this Obama fellow.

Even the nyt...

What you did here was give a great example of the uni party and how normies can be brought on board for war by the media appearing to be pro military while their normal day to day tone is liberal. Even the nyt's...so this must be a just war..Its murica time!!

You can muh jews all you want. But in the case of the NYT, it is a very Jewish paper. It just is. Cant blame them for looking out for their own, but not with my countries people.



Look at this heuuheueh. Obama is trolling. This fuck was not born in America.

The NYT article was notable because it had spent years declaring that the war in Iraq was all based upon lies. Do you not realize this? The NYT didn't publish their article admitting to WMDs existing in Iraq until 2014, with the invasion coming in 2003. So, you're essentially arguing that the NYT was beating the war drum for a 2003 invasion by publishing an article in 2014. Since I'm not sure how many drinks deep you are or how fried you are dreaming up Jewish conspiracies, that means they published the article over a decade later.

As for bombing any country that is a threat to Israel, the loudest supports of Israel are evangelical Christians (hint: those aren't Jews).

WAPO: Why most American Jews vote for Democrats, explained
Obama was by no means a big supporter of Israel. As for the link above, there is a plenty of evidence to support the idea that a growing number Americans who happen to be Jewish aren't diehard Israel supporters.

Let's start with the fact that the most important determining factor of voting pattern is partisan affiliation. If you identify as a Democrat, you are far more likely to vote Democratic than if you identify as an independent or a Republican. In this instance, 70% of Jews self-identify as leaning to or members of the Democratic party. That compares with just 49% of the American public overall who at least lean Democratic. Only 22% of Jews consider themselves as leaning Republican, compared to 39% of the overall public. Orthodox Jews, who represent no more than 10% of the United States' Jewish population, tend to make up the majority of Republican Jews.

Given their self-identification, it's unlikely that Jewish Americans will break from their Democratic ways. But a closer look at why Jews are Democratic should give Republicans further pause.
US Jews are very liberal: 49% of Jewish adults identify as liberal, compared with just 19% who say they are conservative. That's nearly a mirror-opposite of the general public, of whom 38% say they are conservative and 21% say they are liberal. That finding holds for age groups, albeit that Jews become less liberal as you look at the spectrum from Reform towards Orthodox.

My Jewish conspiracy comment has to do with your comments about Jews. Polling indicates that Americans who happen to be Jewish more often liberal than conservative. Other articles argue that they're turning further from Israel. The biggest supporters of Israel, which I think has been true for a long time now, are evangelical Christians. This is group is largely Americans who happen to be white and Christian.

As for your previous comments about the uni-party, something I do agree with to a certain extent, the mainstream politicians among the Left are increasingly and blatantly anti-Israel. This is a division among the Right and the Left.

Oh i agree. But as with the Catholics, when they, as a collective, pull some bullshit, i call them out, same with the Jews. They are both basically the same F'd up cult tbh.

I'm glad my mother got me out of the catholic church.

The problem with Catholics is that the vast majority of them are ignorant of their own faith. This includes many priests and bishops.

Most Catholics are cultural Catholics. Their family attended, they grew up attending, they continue to attend. The actual teachings of the Catholic church are meaningless to most of them. They're strapping on a condom, aborting their babies, having gay or out of wedlock sex (some probably with their local priests, lol!!!!---too soon? Maybe), and generally ignoring church teachings.

It's not faith that keeps them Catholic. It's habit.

Absolutely spot on. And many of these cultural Catholics still attend mass regularly, sometimes even daily.

My grandmother is 80, she played Organ for her church for 50 years and still does.

I cant bring myself to dog on the church in front of her at her age, but i will the Vatican. Shes 80 so im sure shes heard it all. But she simply says she doesn't go to church for the Vatican. For her its a more personal thing.

I guess that makes her a cultural catholic.

If a religion was going to make a comeback it would be the catholic religion. There are a lot of people out there that have done alot of stupid stuff lately and the catholic church is easy on sinners.

I also see a return of Orthodox Christianity in America. (was it ever here?) Which is were i like to look to these days. Its time to fight, none of this turn the other cheek crap. Forgiveness? Yeah, after you REPENT!!!

The usually loony Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals hits it out of the park with an originalist decision protecting the Second Amendment.

Quote:
First, the Second Amendment does, in fact, protect weapons that are related to militia use — especially when those weapons are in common use for a lawful purpose. This principle can and should preclude the vast majority of so-called “assault weapons” bans and bans on standard-capacity magazines in semi-automatic rifles and pistols.

Second, states must permit gun owners to “bear” arms outside the home. While I largely concur with the reasoning that the original public meaning of the Second Amendment does not require protection for concealed carry, if a state bans concealed carry, it must permit open carry.

Third, when dealing with weapons in common use for lawful purposes, the form of gun control that is best designed to preserve public safety — while also respecting constitutional rights — is gun control that is individualized and evidence-based, based on the user, not general, based on the weapon. Though there are exceptions, gun violence tends to come from known threats (violent felons, troubled individuals with long records of problematic behavior) and generally does not occur spontaneously and randomly.
This is an incredibly important decision and it puts liberals in a terrible bind on their gun grabbing agenda. Put simply, states cannot ban both concealed and open carry. You can only ban one or the other (or neither).

WINNING!

I don't think the Supreme can avoid hearing 2nd Amendment cases forever. When even the 9th circuit can't make up its own mind you know there is a problem.

As Terran mentioned, this is the same Appellate Court which ruled earlier people were at the mercy of some miltiantly anti-gun Sheriff Departments who had only approved a tiny fraction of concealed carry permits in California regardless of proven need (we're talking barely single digit %). Effectively banning guns since Public Carry is also banned in California. This particular case went all the way up to the SCOTUS where they refused to hear it (the original California cases were championed by none other than our favorite CA Senator Kamala Harris-D, CA while she was CA Attorney General).

They backed themselves into a corner. Now all areas governed by the 9th District have to allow Public Carry or go to the SCOTUS.

In news of the "He won't get any credit" an American C-17 actually landed unmolested in NORTH KOREA and left unmolested bearing the remains of 55 or so dead servicemen from the Korean War. Well done, Mr. President. Well done.

A third option is the entire court (en banc) rehears the case and does what the 9th is known for, making an illogical decision that effectively bans gun ownership outside of the home completely, which would also send it to the SCOTUS.

And with Kavanaugh headed to the bench, SCOTUS will be even friendlier to a 2A case IMO.

If I were a progressive, I'd be having a 'finding Jesus' moment for my atheistic little self so that Ginsburg (85) and Breyer (80) make it six more years.
