They passed the USA PATRIOT Act – and I did nothing because I am a patriot.

They passed the USA Freedom Act – and I believe in freedom.

They nominated Hillary Clinton – and I voted for the lesser evil.

They declared medical martial law – and I didn’t want to kill grandma.

They said to wear a facemask – and I passively obeyed.

I believe Joe Biden – because I am a liberal.

No RLT, we certainly do not want to watch any videos you suggest, I still haven not finished my course on Conspiracy Theories 101, so could not understand what they are all about. I am still an unrepentant realist.

He is a real to some people. Just as Trump also believes he is the all powerful anointed one. In two thousand years we shall have a new Messiah.

The gospel according to St Semp, St Mick, St CeeJay and St Trader shall be compulsory learning in all schools

His teachings will be studied throughout the world, the meek will lose their status, no longer blessed, but exposed as pussies. Sinners will be grinners, thou shalt covet your neighbours wife's a$$, thou shall not kill unless they are Democrats. Apostates will be banished from this earth at the consecrated Lafayette Square gallows. The history of Genghis Khan shall be stricken as there shalt not be any competition to the messiah 'Trump of New York'.

All manner of people will submit to his eminence or suffer death by suffocation by the avenging angel from Minneapolis. True believers shall signify their acquiescence by travelling at least once in their lifetime to Atlantic City, New Joisey and tramping around the roulette tables of the Trump Casino three times before losing all their money on double '00'.

Hail the Orange One

What nonsense!

Please tell me the time mark in this video at which you see him dropping drugs.

Everyone is fully clothed throughout the video you provided as your "proof." The only reference to porn is the words of the narrator, who alleges that the fully clothed female is a pornstar, and Floyd's T-shirt that says "Young Risk Takers", which the narrator apparently alleges is some type of porn operation, but when the video shows a video form this group, it's just a regular rap video. No porn.

More American policing:

A 75 year old victim. The officers who shoved him are currently suspended but not yet facing charges. Widespread American protests against police violence isn't proving effective in stopping further police violence.

"so for all the US citizens out there I will say once again at the expense of being redundant: “It is your social responsibility to give honor to the office of the Presidency and not to become part of the problem by denigrating your duly elected President."

Since it was a clear night in Texas last night, I decided to go star searching: Mattis, Mullen, Stavridis, Dempsey, Nellerr, Thomas, Allen, McRaven, McConnille, Gilday, Goldfein, Lengyel, Milley, Esper. All bright in the sky and taking issue with the above quote. And those were just the constellations.

You can see the problem about America even on here the posts are bordering on ridiculous, the ramblings of the Americans is becoming more sustained, arguing they must protect the Office of president while others are fighting ( with the written word ) to show they back the protests. In fact judging by many posts and the News, many Americans have no clue about what they want , but as they voted ( it seems ) for the current incumbent of the White House who has no idea what the hell is going on, shows little leadership and bugger all sympathy for anyone, then I suggest that they concentrate on removing this idiot who has in his current term upset just about all of Americas allies, pissed off a goodly proportion of countries regarding trade deals etc and as I write is now threatening the EU as well with tariffs. A divisive President is NOT what America wants I am sure but historically as they vote along partisan lines then it will require a big change to change anything especially when you have a Senate which appears to be powerless.

What was not clearly said by Admiral Mullen and General Mattis in their comments, but will have been very clearly understood by the military top brass, would be the moral and reputational damage suffered by the US military if its serving members were placed in the invidious position of having to use “The Nuremberg Defence” in the highly probable event of something "going wrong".


It already went wrong (albeit with the police not the military) in Buffalo when the Buffalo Police Department's Emergency Response Team (riot squad) assaulted a 75 year old man and left him lying seriously injured on the ground.

The president of the local police union, said "Our position is these officers were simply following orders...”.

Doctor Ben Carson ran for President in 2016, and now he serves President Trump as the Secretary of Housing and Development. He was a superb pick. He gave a speech on May 31st

A second video Doctor Steven Turley, where he notes that a new poll showed that a super majority of Americans favor the use of the military to stop the rioting going on in the country. Trump Wins

What a difference a week makes. Trump Loses. 👍

- 42% of U.S. adults say they’d support cities calling in the military to supplement local police forces, down 13 points from earlier this week.

- Support for the George Floyd protests and the protesters involved, meanwhile, grew by 8 and 11 points, respectively.

So what you are really saying is that anyone who does not agree with your political views is 'stupid'.
You are obviously wasted on this forum. The UK' s least read rags, Grauniad and Dependent would welcome your sharp in depth political assessments.

Nothing wrong with the Germans standing by Hitler either was there.

Wow,

He opens his speech by condemning the creation of divisions in the community, isn't that what Trump has been doing since he first entered politics?

Then he says he doesn't care what people think, he only answers to god. BS, he answers to the voting public.

What a crock of ---- this man talks

While drinking a beer pre Covid a Kiwi was trying to get me to remember the day “America shut down in protest of X “ I honestly don’t remember some racial issue ) I laughed and said I don’t know what your talking about it never happened. He was the victim of a single news source and a sheltered world view. America is a big place and outside of the liberal Democrat controlled urban sht holes life goes on as normal and people are generally super nice to each other and race never comes up. That’s reality not what your watching on tv or reading in your trash news papers

You hit the nail right on the head.
From my experiences, (many visits and travel all over USA), I agree 100%

Can't wait to get back over there soon and catch up with friends

On a side note, remember the riots in LA in 1992?
The media made out that it was the whole of Los Angeles, (25 million people).
I visited USA in 1996 for the first time.
I spoke to many people in Orange county, (part of LA), and most did not even now the riots happened.
It turned out to be only a few square blocks in central LA.

Media still playing the same games 25 years later.

A question. Don't you find it interesting that democrat controlled cities are a mess? It should be difficult to ignore this.
