I’m not so stupid as to think that the corruption of Trump’s children should be blamed on him. Stop projecting your weird North Korean mentality on to me. Instead think about how in 6+ years how you have never found any decision Trump has made to be lacking and how that shows a distinct flaw in your critical faculty.

Yeah, I am sure if Trump's son was corruptly receiving millions of dollars from foreign countries while Trump was president, you would jump up and down and insist that Trump being president had nothing to do with it.

"Who cares who the 'big guy' is. If foreign countries want to give a president's son money they have that right!" - Rama Set assuredly

If Trump's son then transitioned his career to artist and was selling artwork for hundreds of thousands of dollars while Trump was president you also would have no problem with it. People just really want to give a new crack addict artist large amounts of money.  ::)

You are just blatantly lying now.

Nancy Pelosi made millions while in Congress and makes better returns on stock trades than Warren Buffet. I don't see lefties calling her corrupt. The criticism for that comes from the right, not the left. The left generally ignores it.

literal lol. it's genuinely adorable that you think this is true.

Here's an economist saying it -

I'm extremely worried this evening over a 1% drop in the tech-heavy NASDAQ Index. Why this sudden concern? Because it may do great damage to Nancy Pelosi's almost perfect investment track record.

You may have read that one website has already nominated her as the 2021 Wall Street trader of the year. In fact, reading – which I'm told is a left-wing outfit – nonetheless, they have a fabulous story about Ms. Pelosi and her trading acumen.

The Gordon Gekko of the New York Stock Exchange. The oracle of Omaha is dead. Long live the Queen of Stocks.  According to reports, she and her husband Paul Pelosi have traded over $50 million in assets over the past year with annualized returns at 69% as of October, according to an estimate from the Nancy Pelosi portfolio tracker.

That's higher than Buffett, George Soros, Cathy Wood, and other star investors. Apparently, the Pelosi portfolio beat the S&P 500 by 4.9 percent in 2019 and a big 14.3 percent gain in 2020, according to an outfit called FinePrint. Ms. Pelosi is becoming a cult figure among stock investors.

I'll wait for you to find an economist who says otherwise.

Here's a nice site.
That's her stats.  Indeed, she owns or has sold over $55 million in stocks over some time period (its not really established how old the data is)

Looking through the others, its kinda  a mixed bag.  Some have only a few thousand dollars, others have double digit millions in stocks.  A few have triple digits.  And its pretty well spread between Dems and Republicans.

Guys... We are so far off topic Tom Hanks called to ask about volleyballs.

He probably had voter blocks in his head.
The black vote (African American) is not the same voting block as most Americans.  Ie. Whites.  Different needs, cultural differences, etc...
So he probably just lumped all non-blacks into one group because its easiest when looking at data sets.

Congratulations.  You just saw a news report on test data.  You know, data used to ensure that a system works properly?
All those values are invalid. 

And none should be in the live system.  Of course they never state its in the live system or if partition 1 is live data or test data.

But still, good job Tom.  Your detective skills are truely Keystone material.

I'm not doing anything to prepare.

If the world elites really wanted to put their resources into making us dead they could simply put the poison into existing drugs without our knowledge, into our food, into the water, or perhaps the air, and manipulate the governments to ignore it. It could all be done in a less visible and more underhanded way. It is possible that they are doing this as well; but I tend to believe that our rulers are cruel, yet benevolent, and make it possible for you to choose your own fate. If you want to smoke, the information is available to you and you are allowed know the risks to the best of humanity's ability to determine it. That is your choice to make.

Clearly, in a cull, you don't kill everything, and want the best to survive. If this is some sort of cull, Covid vaccination is a test of intelligence, to which people may escape the propaganda and media hype by simply not taking the vaccines. While there is some social media censoring on a private level, there is no governmental legal effort going into eliminating the voice or research of the vaccine critics, even though not all countries have strong freedom of speech laws. The information is out there and circulating, available for people to decide for themselves. The situation is that you knew it was rushed and experimental, you knew there might be risk and that it involved novel genetic manipulation methods, but you did it anyway based on hype and fear mongering, so any injury you get is your own fault by design.

The Covid vaccines will never be truly mandated and enforced by the government, as they are doing it through illegal decree, and will always get swatted down by the court systems at the last moment. They could do it the proper legal way through the legal process if they wanted to but it's generally not attempted. In the US the Whitehouse is pushing vaccination by executive decree, while Congress is not making much effort to do it via law (on purpose, IMO).

Per breakdown of the economy, society is set up in a way in which it is too big to fail, so it won't. The central banks will always step in to bail out the banks, erase debt, radically transform the conceptual nature of currency if necessary, as they already have done to the dollar over the years. The existence of the police and the military and intelligence agencies prevents the possibility of any real violent revolution; making it unlikely to be attempted. People don't rebel against their government unless they feel that they have no other choice, and so the government will try to keep it hot but not boiling.

The vaccine deaths and vaccine enforcement and pressure will, therefore, be kept to a level people can accept but not rebel over. They may also be trying to distract you with high inflation; to pacify your attention towards improving your monetary situation instead of thinking too much about the government's tyranny. Probably not a coincidence. Duplicitous governments tend to trick, distract, and finally adapt to an allowable level to please the populous once it has pushed things to the limit, preventing mass conflict. In the end we may be conditioned into accepting the vaccines and vaccine deaths as an acceptable part of our lives, like we accept smoking and the many smoking deaths. No happy ending. No mass rebellion. They are simply too smart to allow that to happen.

So what you're saying is that 'The Great Reset' isn't real and this is a test to see who will not blindly follow experts and government recomendations?

Hey guys?
This isn't another covid thread.
This is a 'what are you gonna do if your conspiracy theory is correct.'

Even Tom avoided answering, which I find concerning.  It means not even he, the loudest voice here, has any plan or has even given it any thought.  As though he knows its never going to happen....

There are far too many people who believe that "the elites" have designed the corona vaccine to kill everyone.  Only 100 million people worldwide will survive, but only as slaves to the elites.  Something about having better control over the world, the why is kinda vague.

Anyway, the question becomes: what are the anti-vaxxers and people who believe this doing to prepare?
Because lets face it, if you believe this then you MUST be preparing for the aftermath.
The news showing people dying suddenly.  First a few thousand a day, then millions a day.  The riots as people realize the vaccine is genocide.  The angry mobs as they tear through anyone.  Doctors as they try in vein to find a cure.  Basic services and utilities failing due to lack of people.  Bodies in the streets and homes with no one to collect them as they fall.  Governments collapsing.

And finally... You.  Alone or maybe with your family, surrounded by death.
Could you survive?  How would you fight the death squads and chemical weapons that the elites will use to wipe out the resistance?  Do you have a gas mask?  Guns?  Training in wilderness survival?

What do you all think?  Think these people are actually preparing or just bitching, hoping they don't need to worry about where to buy food in 5 years?

I'm guessing now it's official, Operation Warp Speed was the worst thing that could have ever happened to humanity.

Donald Trump is Hiter.  Or Jar Jar. 
He pushed for the vaccine.  The vaccine that is going to comit genocide. 
Did he do it knowingly or in ignorance that big pharma would make it deadly to everyone?

It’s not irrelevant what Trump says because a large number of people may act on his words.
Correct, but Kangaroony is right that Trump has no medical qualifications to pontificate about this.

What’s funny is watching Trump fans, who hang on his every word, spend all year falling in to anti vax conspiracy theory rabbit holes and then trying to reconcile that with Trump’s clear pro vaccine stance.

The reconciliation is "I'm anti-Mandate.  So I'm not going to do it because i'm being forced to!"

Wait... why would anyone bitch about the PG-13 rating?  What's the problem?  The Nolan ones were PG-13.  And its not like Batman needs to rip off limbs or anything.

Putting out a statement to make sure it's understood that a poll showing deep unpopularity for the president is not accurate seems so... Trumpy. She seems to have come just short of referring to the poll as fake news.

Why Biden why?
Is it because they put you lower than Trump at the same time?

Look, about 50% is gonna hate Biden.  Nothing he does is going to change that.  And honestly, he hasn'f done much.  He's a very low key president.  At least from what I've seen. 
Honestly, republicans seem to paint him as more active than he is.  So to me its hard to know if he's doing a good job or not.

Hey, here's something to stop the endless loop that is Tom avoiding answering a question.

Short end of it: Republicans are pissy that the debate group (which is run by a republican) won't change their rules.  So they're gonna boycott it.

This may be good news for Democrats.  Or it'll be pointless.  But its not BAD news.

Either the debates matter and the republicans won't be part of it, thus won't get media coverage.
the debates don't matter and this won't change anything.

While lack of trust in your government isn't uniquely American (is anything?), What is less common is the American culture of 'staying true to your convictions no matter what' and 'a single man can and should stand up and fight for what he believes in.'

Which causes a whole heap of issues such as refusing to change your opinions or what you think are facts, even in the face of overwhelming evidence.  Those that do are 'wishy washy' or 'flaky' or not 'True believers'.   It also means people are more willing to be angry when the government does something they don't like.  They honestly think its morally wrong and they have a duty to fight back and change things. (tho most won't). And by fight back I mean actually use force because clearly voting isn't working.

It is curious. I wonder if the Qanon's and normal ardent Trump supporters have disavowed DJT because of his super-pro vaccine stance. I mean, he is super-pro evidenced by his quotes...

Dear Republicans: Your favorite president wants you to get vaccinated


- February: 'Everybody, go get your shot”
- March: “I would recommend it to a lot of people that don’t want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly.”
- April: “The federal pause on the J&J shot makes no sense,” Trump said, adding: “Just six people out of the nearly 7 million who’ve gotten the Johnson & Johnson vaccine reported blood clots.”
- April: “I’m all in favor of the vaccine. It’s one of the great achievements, a true miracle, and not only for the United States. We’re saving tens of millions of lives throughout the world. We’re saving entire countries.”
- July: “I recommend you take it, but I also believe in your freedoms 100 percent.”
- August: “Now one thing: When you have the vaccine, people that do [get infected] — and it’s a very small number relatively, but people that do get it — get better much quicker,” Trump said. “And it’s very important to know. They don’t get nearly as sick, and they get better."
- August: “I recommend take the vaccines,” he said. “It’s good. I did it. Take the vaccines.”
- September: “The vaccines do work,” Trump said on a conservative talk-radio show. “And they are effective. So here’s my thing: I think I saved millions and millions of lives around the world.”

Not to mention, we all know he got the booster.

They have a blind spot.  Or just boo him when he talks about it.

Yeah.... You're wrong Thork.

As the newbie said, by being vaccinated, the virus is attacked immediately inside your body and its killed much faster.  A few days vs 2 weeks.

This means less replications.  Less replications means less varients that can be passed on.  Remember, it doesn't matter if it has a billion varients if those varients never get passed on to another person.

And yes, animals have corona type viruses.  But.. ya know... They don't spread to humans often.  Unless ya eat an infected bat or something.

What an invalid argument. There may have been more about Trump if the expert had answered the way the host wanted him to answer. However, he did not. Obviously it's best to move on if the narrative is not going your way.

So now you’re saying that the interview could have been really bad if they asked different questions and if the guest gave different answers? Lul PBS pwned rekt 42069

I like how fast he flipped from "horrible trump bash interview" to "if would have been bad if they did what I said they did."

I was wild about Trump 2024, but honestly I think I'm a Tucker 2024 guy now. I seriously can't wait.

The fact that Trump hasn't put out that he's campaigning, tells me that he really doesn't want to.  Unless what he has planned falls through.  Which is might.

I mean, he has the fans.  And once his new platform is up, he'll have the likes on a twitter like system.
So really, why would he be president again?

What kind of money are these people being paid?
The kind of money that makes you not care, thus perpetuating the cycle.
Not always.
Depends if you're a contractor or not.
Contractors get paid shit.  Especially if the company paying them is Indian.
