Have you considered that the world is more nuanced than "Wahhhhh this thing bad no matter what!"? There's more to racism than good/bad dichotomies of behavior, that's like... The grade school level of understanding relationships between people. It doesn't make sense in real life. There's a world of difference between 'black people are all criminals' and 'white people have it easier, on average, than non-white people.'
>Have you considered that the world is more nuanced than "Wahhhhh this thing bad no matter what!"?
Not when talking to the retards on here.

A generalization is a generalization is a generalization. Speaking as someone who lost there home in the market crisis, nothing justifies it.

Both generalizations will create hostile tensions between races, which allows me to bring up my account, while anecdotal, I have commonly received scorn and assumed association with the same thinking. A colleague at my job used to think the same thing. "In general" is just an excuse to pre-judge in general. It literally boils down to "it's okay when I do it"
>A generalization is a generalization is a generalization.

That's an incredibly simplistic world view, anon. If you expand your horizons a bit you'll see why. Good luck to you, comrade, I look forward to the day you join us.

Of course, every single time. Don't even bother responding.

Jussie Smollett Case: Brothers Questioned By Police Were Paid $3,500 To Stage Attack, Which Was Rehearsed Days Before, SourcesSay

CHICAGO (CBS) — Jussie Smollett paid two brothers to stage an attack against him, directed them to buy items used in the alleged assault and actually rehearsed it with them, sources say.

Sources say at least one of the brothers bought the rope used in the incident at Smollett’s request. The sources also say the “Empire” actor paid for the rope, which was purchased at the Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in the Ravenswood neighborhood the weekend of Jan. 25.

The brothers, who were questioned by police this week before being released, were paid $3,500 before leaving for Nigeria and were promised an additional $500 upon their return.

They left for Nigeria later in the day on Jan. 29, after the attack.

Sources said one of the brothers held the rope and poured bleach while the other wore a plain red hat and yelled slurs at Smollett.

>You lose my respect and inclination to believe you as a law enforcement agency
i guess nobody should believe anything that police say anymore and 100% of criminals should go free

you've truly opened my eyes
Only the CPD could project this level of intent on me, impressive.
So you believe the claim is unsupported, which the article even mentions what local news stations reported.

>It's not a false flag
>I have no position yet
These are contradictory.
>it's too fucking early all I am is entirely skeptical of ANYTHING the CPD states
But the media agree with it to report it, the investigation is still going to grand jury, and that's without assuming an entire PD is corrupt because of a conspiracy involving only four officers who are now fired.
>You believe the media then

Trump preparing to surrender America like Benedict Arnold prepared to surrender West Point to the British by weakening its defenses.

>‘It’s very curious why the leadership has not committed resources to prepare for the 2020 election,’ one Homeland Security official tells The Daily Beast.

Two teams of federal officials assembled to fight foreign election interference are being dramatically downsized, according to three current and former Department of Homeland Security officials. And now, those sources say they fear the department won’t prepare adequately for election threats in 2020.

“The clear assessment from the intelligence community is that 2020 is going to be the perfect storm,” said a DHS official familiar with the teams. “We know Russia is going to be engaged. Other state actors have seen the success of Russia and realize the value of disinformation operations. So it’s very curious why the task forces were demoted in the bureaucracy and the leadership has not committed resources to prepare for the 2020 election.”

The task forces, part of the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Agency (CISA), were assembled in response to Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. One focuses in part on securing election infrastructure and the other focuses on foreign influence efforts, including social media disinformation campaigns.

One of the task forces is now half the size it was a few months ago, according to two DHS officials familiar with the task forces, and there’s no indication that DHS senior political leadership will staff it up or sustain it. Instead, there are concerns it will completely wither away. The other task force also shrank significantly shortly after the midterms, according to that official, and before its members produced a thorough assessment of what happened during the 2018 elections.

When the Trump base cracks...which it won't.

The key here is the Senate. Within the GOP support for Trump has remained high across his presidency - the polls show this. But the same polls also show that opposition to Trump is growing more and more stark - and crucially, it's in the majority. Every poll consistently puts him underwater on approval and that opinion rolls down ballot come election time.

Trump is doing the same thing he always does, play to his core. But the numbers don't work that way - you NEED independent voters to carry your platform nationally. It would take far more finagling and skullduggery to allow minority rule of the Executive than is possible to achieve with the law the way it is. And losing the Executive will likely coincide with a Senate defeat, since the GOP is defending the majority of seats for the next two elections.

The Senate GOP knows this - they're not idiots - but simultaneously, breaking with Trump in ANY WAY turns the base against you, because of that high approval rating. So they're caught between a rock and a hard place. Either for the party line and keep marching towards an electoral buttfucking in 2020, or defy Trump and eat a primary challenge, AND a possible blacklisting for your future lobbying career. There is no way out.

Their only real hope would be to wait for Trump to do something that alienates EVERYONE and then play the integrity card and shoo him out, likely losing am election but preparing for another Reaganesque rebound. But it's a slim hope - the GOP has socially engineered itself to rely upon a base of voters loyal to the GOP ideal, and Trump has hijacked that ideal. Defying it, even slightly, is a warrant for your removal. It is extremely unlikely that the GOP base will EVER turn on Trump like they did Nixon, which means there is only one real end - a slow, agonizing destruction of the Republican party itself as they depart from a nationally appealing platform.
>It is extremely unlikely that the GOP base will EVER turn on Trump like they did Nixon
They would if Mueller released something for once, but I've long lossed hope on that even being something.
Good Goyim
How is it not strange to you that the people closest to him, people that were instrumental in his election, are being taken down one by one?
yeah taken down for thIngs that were irrelevant to the campaign.

The first map of great whites sharks' DNA has revealed "mutations" that protect the animals against cancer and other illnesses. Scientists hope more research could help apply the findings to treating age-related illnesses in humans. Great whites also have the ability to repair their own DNA - something we can't do.

The research was carried out by a team of scientists at the Save Our Seas Foundation Shark Research Centre at Nova Southeastern University in Florida. Shark DNA is one-and-a-half times bigger than human DNA, meaning there are things coded into the animals that, at the moment, humans can't do. And scientists hope to unlock those secrets and use them to treat the problems that DNA is already solving in sharks.

Can we finally replace dolphins with sharks
You can't die from cancer if you get eaten first.

Report: Jussie Smollett to Face Grand Jury over Hate Crime Hoax

Empirestar Jussie Smollett will reportedly face a grand jury next week to determine the credibility of his hate crime allegations, following reports that Chicago Police are investigating the actor for orchestrating the attack on himself.

Last month, Smollett claimed that he was assaulted by two men in a racist and homophobic attack, sparking an outpouringof support for him and condemnation of the alleged attack.Yet on Saturday, Chicago police revealed that the focus of the investigation had “shifted.”CNN crime and justice reporter Shimon Prokupeczreportedthat authorities now believe that Smollett actually paidtwo men to fake the attack, both of whom were now cooperating with law enforcement.

According to law enforcement officials who spoke with TMZ, a grand jury will hear thecase next week to examine its credibility. The police sources also provided details on why Smollett’s claims seemingly lacked credibility.

And about twice as much he can't, but they won't really ask.

Seriously, does anyone trust the media anymore?

Note: https://yvancross.blogspot.com/2019/01/mainstream-media-2019-objectivity-no.html

The media has gone from a liberal bias to an advocacy press to blatant propaganda in the past decade. And anyone who trusts this form of brainwashing needs to be examined.

Bernie Sanders, the independent senator from Vermont whose 2016 presidential campaign helped energize the progressive movement and reshaped the Democratic party, has entered the 2020 race for the White House.

Sanders, a self-styled Democratic socialist who spent much of his nearly 30-year congressional career as an outsider on the political fringe, cast his candidacy as way to accomplish the mission he started three years ago when he ran against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.

“Together, you and I and our 2016 campaign began the political revolution,” he said in an email to supporters on Tuesday morning. “Now, it is time to complete that revolution and implement the vision that we fought for.”

Sanders, 77, running as a Democrat again, believes he can prevail in a crowded and diverse field that includes several female and minority candidates, then beat Donald Trump, whom he called in the email “the most dangerous president in modern American history”.

Asked in an interview on CBS on Tuesday morning what would be different about his 2020 campaign, Sanders replied: “We’re gonna win.”

>“I think we need to understand, though, why we’re in this situation. The president is not well at all mentally. I think he’s an extreme narcissist. He has been denied what he wants, his wall, and he is having a hissy fit. He is out of control, and he will not take no for an answer from Congress. And he’s going do this,” Painter said.

>“He is going to insist on doing he is going to tear the country apart. It’s unconstitutional. It’s illegal. He is going to do enormous damage to the Republican Party which is going to split right down the middle over this, and we really need to keep in mind that this is because the president is not well,” he added.

Painter then asserted that because Trump allegedly believes Russian President Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence agencies makes him unwell and unfit for the office of president.

>“He is not capable of doing the job. He does need to be removed under the 25th amendment, but he stocked his cabinet with people who are unwilling to do that, and Congress is apparently unwilling to even try to remove him through impeachment,” he said.

nobody even watches the counter except retards attempting to play brilliant internet detective over something nobody cares about
Sure thing samefag
You realize the ip counter doesn't move if both parties have already posted, right?
nobody actually cares about the IP counter. it either goes "you were pretending to be a different person, but i caught you because the IP counter didn't change!" or "you pretended to be a different person and even changed your IP so that the counter went up, but i caught you anyway!"

whether the person was even pretending to be a different person doesn't matter. you made a worthless shitpost so you won.

For more than two years the mainstream media, various US politicians, and eager anti-Trump bloggers, hyped the conspiracy theory about Russian meddling. They claimed that Russia had somehow colluded with the Trump campaign to get the billionaire elected.

Massive investigations, paid for by the American taxpayer, were launched and every rumor, irrelevant detail and fabrication were scrutinized by Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation.

But after two years and 200 interviews, the Senate Intelligence Committee uncovered no evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to both Democrats and Republicans on the committee.

Democrats and other Trump opponents have long maintained the fake narrative that special counsel Mueller and Congressional investigators would somehow unearth some evidence of Trump campaign coordination with Russians.

Now, Justice Department and Congressional sources say they believe that Mueller is close to wrapping up his investigation with nothing to show for it.

With zero evidence to support the conspiracy theory that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, Mueller could only charge minor figures for unrelated tax issues or for lying to his investigators about some irrelevant details. He has found nothing at all to support the dramatic claims of collusion made since the beginning of the affair.

Russiagate nevertheless resulted in a lot of damage, as military contractors tried to push for more NATO aggression against Russia. One victim of the conspiracy was Maria Butina, an innocent Russian citizen, who was held in solitary confinement until she signed a paper which claims that she was involved in a conspiracy.

In the liberal haven of San Francisco as much as the mention of a gun can cause stampedes and injuries

performance of hit musical “Hamilton” in San Francisco descended into chaos Friday night as theater-goers fled the show in panic after a member of the audience suffered a medical emergency.

The mass hysteria appears to have been caused when a woman in the audience collapsed at the same time as fake gunshots rang out on stage as part of the show, CBS News reported. She is believed to have suffered a heart attack.

CBS reporter Shirin Rajee, who was attending the show, said she heard at least one person yell “gun” as fans fled the Orpheum Theatre in the Civic Center area of the city.

A tweet sent out by the Orpheum Theatre explained that while the medical emergency was going on, an audience member pulled the fire alarm as the panic spread, which encouraged people to exit the theater.

Police said three people were injured in the chaos, including one person who suffered a broken leg, SFGate reported. None of the injuries were life-threatening. NBC Bay Area reported that alongside the heart attack and the leg injury, one boy suffered a seizure and another person sustained a head injury.

The woman who initially collapsed is in hospital in a critical condition at San Francisco General Hospital. “The original patient who required an [automated external defibrillator] had a return of pulses with CPR and paramedic and remains in critical condition,” the San Francisco Fire Department tweeted.

Imagine going to sleep after a day of heavy snowfall and waking up the next morning to find that all that white snow has turned black overnight. That’s exactly what the people of Kiselevsk and Prokopyevsk, two cities in Russia’s Kuzbass region experienced earlier this week.

Photos and videos recently shared on social media by worried citizens of the two Russian cities show the grim reality of living in a coal mining area – snow covered fields and streets blanketed by a thick layer of coal dust and soot that literally turns the snow from white to pitch black.

We’ve all seen dirty snow in urban areas before, but the black snow in Kiselevsk and Prokopyevsk is a rare and disturbing sight that has locals concerned about the air they breathe every day. Many of them have taken to social media to voice their concerns and pressure authorities into taking action against the nearby coal processing plants, but local officials claim that the problem is complex.

Andrey Panov, Deputy Governor of the Kemerovo Region for Industry, Transport and Ecology, told reporters that because the development of gas networks in the region has never been particularly supported most buildings still rely on coal boilers for heating, so private households and local businesses all contribute to the heavy pollution. Vehicle exhaust fumes are also to blame, Panov adds.

JTA — A student association at Oxford University passed a non-binding motion to effectively ban all kosher meat.

The Junior Common Room, a student government association at Oxford’s Somerville College, called on the college to only serve meat that has been stunned before being killed, according to the BBC. That requirement would exclude kosher meat, which cannot be stunned before slaughter.

A spokesman for the college said the college is looking into the request, but will also be expanding its kosher and halal meat offerings.

BASED Brits fighting the good fight
Imagine not just eating whatever the fuck you want to because ( Insert Meme Lord in the sky of choice) and it’s ( Insert Religious Text ) says no that’s bad. Actually yikes.
the religions with rules on food started out in warm countries, in a time when proper food preservation was inexistant
people literally died from killing cattle wrong due to bacteria and parasites, and some meat types were essentially a deathtrap (impossible to preserve at all with their tech level)

they took what they considered ok and slapped that as divine fucking orders so the retards would stop killing themselves (can't be the 'helpful' workforce if you're dead, after all - this long predates globalist economies)

of course it's now a non-issue thanks to scientific progress finding what went wrong where & why and developping good preservation methods, but whoops can't go and destroy their jenga towers of bullshit now can we
based, didn’t know that
I think what they are getting at is that some religions prevent you from eating meat that's been "blessed" by another religion
Example would be a Catholic is not "supposed" to eat meat if someone from a different religion says grace in their deities name
