*Has not clicked link*
It's CNN.  The baias is gonna be strong. 

I'm curious what you think this adds to the discussion, especially admitting you didn't click the link. From my point of view, it's essentially the same as if you hadn't posted at all.
Its more about Honk's comment on it.  Reading a CNN analysis and claimin Trump's world is falling apart based on it is likely not as accurate as one would hope.  The article is essentially an opinion piece written in an anti-trump manner. (I've read some of it now) As such, its baiased and is going to make it sound like Trump is on the edge of being destroyed but he isn't.  He certaintly isn't happy but its a far cry from his world falling apart.

Trump's whole world is falling apart. This pleases me.

Makes you wonder how many other "scientific" endeavors have been cover stories.

Some people say god created everything, such as life, the earth, and every living creature. but who created him? did he create himself? what do you fine intellectuals think?

Why would you ask a question like this on the internet? Do you expect someone here to actually know the answer?

If you really want to know - go into the wilderness for thirty days and thirty nights, staying in one spot, and abstaining from distraction. That is, no reading, no writing, no cooking, no fires, no cell phone, etc, etc. Then ask your question with all your heart and all your mind and see what happens.
Considering that you need water and food, that seems like it's doomed to fail.  I mean, you can only bring so much food and water with you.  And what about bathroom breaks?  Should you dig a hole first and sit on that for a month?

Trump meets the senate bosses.  It doesn't go well.

https://www.npr.org/2018/12/11/675425269/trump-to-meet-with-chuck-and-nancy-expectations-are-low

I like how he basically got baited into owning the (seemingly) inevitable shutdown.  Should be a fun shitshow to watch over the next 2 years.

Also, 1/3 of the government is a majority, apparently.  So, ya know...good job Dems for being the majority again.

And for added flavor, Trump is kinda worried now.  Or at least his re-election campaign is.

I got an email asking for money. Standard stuff, I get one every day.  The odd bit is this:

Quote
The swamp is so eager to stop us that they might even challenge us with a LIBERAL Republican who can’t stand that we’re actually keeping our conservative promises.

Which I take to mean "Oh shit, someone from my own party may challenge me in 2020!".  Which, I think, would be unprecidented?

Technology & Information / Re: New Phone or Fix old one- advice request
« on: December 05, 2018, 09:57:55 AM »
Thanks you two.  I'm gonna take Junker's advice and get a new phone.  We wanna swap carriers anyway and said carrier has a 50% off first 3 months (of the phone bill) and even then its cheaper.


So I'm getting this:
https://consumer.huawei.com/en/phones/p20-pro/


Huawei p20 pro.  Its a good phone for the price and its very common despite the risk of China spying on me.


Then, once I get the funds, I'll spend the $30 to get a battery and tool kit.

"I am a Tariff Man. When people or countries come in to raid the great wealth of our Nation, I want them to pay for the privilege of doing so."

lol he literally doesn't understand what a tariff even is.  awesome.
Yep.  Though he may be referring to the decrease in products America buys with a Tariff.  Which hurts China' economy.  A little.

Many people don't know because they've let too much dark in their lives. We are born pure and have unlimited knowledge abilities. We don't need to know when to breathe, it just happens,
Yes, the Medulla does that.  Also regulates heartrate.

we don't need to know when we help the little old lady across the street, we feel good,
Not everyone feels good.  We are not born with this as it a social and emathetic feeling more than intrinsic.

we don't need to know that murdering a fellow human is bad.
Ya, we do.  We call them laws.  Also empathy but before we understand death, murder is just sleeping.

From an e-mail I got from Trump himself.... (or just his campaign)


Quote
Our accounts took a MASSIVE hit.
 
 Not only did we have to fight off the Democrats in the midterms, we then had to stop them from trying to STEAL elections from us during recounts.
 
 ...I even transferred millions from my re-election campaign to protect our Senate majority.
 
With the very first end-of-month deadline of the 2020 election cycle coming up, I need YOUR help right now replenishing our accounts for our re-election.

Is it legal to transfer campaign funds to the senate?
Eh, there's either a loophole or it is legal. Even I find it unlikely that Trump would send that.


I wouldn't.  He has no real knowledge of campaign finance law.
That said, it was likely written by people who do and likely either "I used my campaign funds to hold rallys in X guy's honor" or its a lie.

And apparently being a legal, permament resident of America, married to an American with American children, doesn't help stop you from being deported.

I am genuinely interested about how someone can explain this away.
He wasn't a true American.  Probably liberal too.  Duh.

Trump's America News.


Summary: Trump suggested America needs a global, well funded news network to counter CNN in the world and paint America as Great.


I'm not against the government fully funding a non-profit news agency, like NPR, but I don't trust them to not pull funding at the sight of negative stories.

Several possibilities:


1. They hate Jews and don't wanna think they were in danger.
2. They can't wrap their heads around genocide, like how anyone could do it, so they assume its false.
3. They don't care to learn anything else.
4. They're idiots.

Maybe so, but Trump bluntly said he trades integrity for cheap oil.  Its pretty damn depressing to see a president so blatently corrupt (or at least morally loose).

No other US president would be doing anything different right now. When it comes to things like Saudi politics, the West's hands are tied. Sure, another president might be making some feel-good speeches about it, but their actions wouldn't be different.

This is also why the fact that the Saudis made 9/11 happen was buried and we invaded Afghanistan instead. Saudi Arabia is practically invincible right now and they know it. They've been doing shit like this for decades and the only reason you're hearing about it now is because Turkey managed to do something competent for once.


Yeah, I agree he couldn't do anything different, but there's a difference between "I hate it but doing anyhing would cause more harm than good" vs "Its not nice but they give us cheap oil they didn't do anything wrong."  Its all about image.


What did Turkey do?  I missed that bit.

In other news:
Trump loves The Saudies cause they make us money, even if they do kill journalists. (Though Hillary making money off them is still wrong apparently)Trump also hates judges who aren't biased towards him and thinks there are too many of them.  ("Obama Judges")

The problem is that such a test is based on whoever holds power.  And since some senators think women can eject unwanted pregnencies automatically, I'm not gonna put my faith in them to write a test.
