actually I think this cartoon is very true to real life.. while the circumstances have turned out beneficial to Trump, clearly his characteristic behavior has contributed to finally getting North Korea to the table (again). It is still to be seen how much really comes out of it. However, this is a much better, faster start to denuclearize NK compared to previous attempts AND compared to the failed attempt by 44th with Iran.
Hat tip to Branco
With a hat-tip to http://www.battleswarmblog.com/ and thank you for expressing much of what drove voters in the US as well, especially the first 2 minutes..
To all that read this.. regardless of you being happy or unhappy about the current election, go and LISTEN / WATCH the confirmation hearings that happen right now daily on the CSPAN network.
So, due to hackers, who are not proven to be Russian, we have been informed of more crime by the Democratic presidential candidate and further more mischief of the Democratic party..
And the CIA blames Russia without proof, the FBI is more reserved and doubts it. Some more unknown secret agencies all agree – gee, would I like to know who and what these agencies all do.. but that is not mentioned..
All this is really bad, since foreign money influenced elections.. big donors from the Democratic Party taken out and even worse the State Department sending money to get people to oust a foreign leader..
But are we really believing that more information about the misbehaviour of a party did do the winning for Trump???? Or is it more the very-very bad history (just one example here..) of the most secretive administration and Mrs. Clinton herself..
Voters got more information since the hacks.. and that is good.
And here another good thought..
Hint, it’s not the Republicans hindering science (albeit that seems to always be implied..). It’s the mono-cultural self-asserting bubble of academia.. which drives people to have confirmation bias and shoddy research. But there are good news, since it seems as if the next president tries to restore at least some sanity when it comes to the original tasks of government agencies job-description. Maybe the EPA stops focusing on a greenhouse gas plants need for growth and redoubles efforts when it comes to lead-contamination in the US (I know, one can dream).
NASA is returned to the original goal of space exploration.. and while the article clearly bemoans that.. it seems – to me – that even before the new president takes office the good news are rolling in.. the 36% of man-made climate change believers in the science community might be sad (and who knows how many have succumbed peer pressure since 2013) to , but hopefully the others feel some more space and freedom to express their believes.. as peer pressure is reduced..and maybe even the NASA page corrects their statement about how many scientists really believe in man-made climate change. After all there are scientists that don’t want to be thrown into the political fray .. even if their association promotes a political agenda..
There’s a wonderful article out there – go and use the link – it’s worth your time – that actually very accurately describes, why the real destruction of scientific trust is wrecked by the “tolerant” left..
That’s the ultimate casualty in the Left’s war: scientists’ reputations. Bad research can be exposed and discarded, but bad reputations endure.
The above conclusion of the article is what I have felt in the community and in my personal life already more than once.. and while I aimed to push back it is hard to explain to people why so many statements of the press are wrong, and even worse, why so many of the “scientific” publications about climate or global-something out there are biased, questionable and with agenda.
I close with two of my favorite cartoonists pictures about global warming..
Even the EPA concedes that all changes they want (at 100’s of Billions of Tax-Dollar) would only result in 0.2 degree C change.. (i.e. within the inaccuracy of measurement…. !!)
Seems that the Ohio University car-knife attack is a copy cat from the “knife intifada” the Palestinensiens conduct on Israel.. as a side note, Ohio does not allow campus-concealed carry and the only person effectively able to fight back was the luckily on-site police officer.
The good news is then it seems that the average joe has actually not the means to get a firearm illegally… and that firearms in the hands of good people solve such problem ..
But also it shows that terrorism can not be stopped and people will find ways to inflict injury and death..
Go and learn a skill and get legal with it. Instructors are found here..
Just a short comment after reading the most recent events of political protest by people who have in 2/3 of the participants not voted, the ridiculous death treats and actual physical violence which seems to flow mostly left to right..
It seems that politically left oriented media, social networks and generally the underground protest-troops can all decry the “Trump-hate”, but in the process normalize bigotry, hatred, public shaming, and violence against Trump supporters.
IF so, there will be even more to be paid in future stakes.
So, generally speaking, I would reject anything Debbie Wasserman Schultz is involved in.. therefore this is in my mind stupid..
They really should use this .. if they want to promote unity and get people together in AMERICA..
But even worse.. currently the violence and property damage is done by the very same people, who would vote for the DNC-staff in a heart beat.. so where are the Harry Reids and Debbie WSs to denounce the violence and to accept the results.
A 58 percent majority of Clinton supporters say they accept Trump’s election, while 33 percent do not. Questions about Trump’s victory are passionate – 27 percent of Clinton supporters feel “strongly” he did not win legitimately.
And to add insult to (self-inflicted) injury, most of these protesters have not voted..
Over 70 percent of the 112 anti-Trump protesters recently arrested during demonstrations in Portland to contest the election results did not cast their ballots for anyone, NBC affiliate KGW Portland reported Tuesday.
Obviously these people don’t understand the boxes
(neither do they accept the results..) nor do they understand the concept of pins..
Clearly the header and the crime rate pictures are not from 2016 (too early for the electoral college county map 2016), but can somebody lead me to the creator of this or give me more background? doing my own research..
…here’s a 2014 crime by county map of the US, based on FBI data.
…and here’s the electoral college from 2016
Make your own conclusions.
Listen in, but note, some stuff was mentioned already, such as the fact that Trump-supporters were bullied into quietness, PC big.. .. but still voted..
