If you read the chain of replies somebody said that the land was rightfully Jewish people and it has been from before it was Palestinian.
Somebody pointed out the slippery slope that if you use that argument the land is rightfully the Canaanites, which, are modern-day Palestinians
>Palestinians firing rockets at Israel
Maybe Israel should stop murdering all their civilians and stop genociding the Palestinians.
Maybe that's why they shoot rockets.

I swear, the more the pandemic ends, the more shootings are coming back.
>DENVER - A shooting at a birthday party in Colorado Springs early on Sunday morning left six people and the gunman dead, the police said.

>Police officers responded shortly after midnight to a shooting at the Canterbury Mobile Home Park, where they found six adults dead and one man with "serious injuries," the Colorado Springs police said. He was taken to a hospital, where he died.

>The police said that a birthday party was being held for one of the victims in a home in the park and that "friends, family and children were gathered inside" when the shooting occurred.

>The gunman, who was not publicly identified, was "a boyfriend of one of the female victims," the police said. He drove to the home, walked inside "and began shooting people at the party before taking his own life," the police said.

>The children who were in the home at the time were not injured and are staying with relatives, the police said.

>The police on Sunday were trying to determine a motive for the shooting. The names of the victims and the gunman will be released by the El Paso County coroner, the authorities said.

>Gov. Jared Polis of Colorado said the shooting, on Mother's Day, was "devastating, especially as many of us are spending the day celebrating the women in our lives who have made us the people we are today."

So 2.5 million is the upper estimate from the CDC. Which means OP is right. Which means he wasn't lying. Which means I wasn't bluffing. Let that sink in. Do you realize what a total idiot you look like right now? Of course not. Because if you did we wouldn't be having this discussion.

Scientists the world over have been struggling to contain the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus for almost two years, but one Indian numerologist believes we can cure the world of this pandemic just with the help of bad spelling.

SV Annandd Rao, a stenographer and numerology hobbyist from Ananthapuram, in India’s Andrash Pradesh state, believes that simply spelling “covid” and “corona” the wrong way can cure not only his home district, but the entire world of coronavirus. Apparently the numbers corresponding to the letters in the current spelling of these words add up to a very dangerous number, which will bring the world to its knees. But if we could change that terrible number to something beneficial, by simply adding some letters, than all will be well…

“The existing name ‘Corona’ adds up to a dangerous number, causing unimaginable devastation to the entire world,” Annandd told Times of India. “If we fill the spelling with divine power it will create an aura leading to the complete disappearance of the virus. Similar benefits can be achieved by changing the spelling of Covid-19 to ‘Covviyd-19’.”

Rao, who practices numerology as a hobby and has added an extra ‘n’ and ‘d’ to his name for good luck, has set up a banner asking the public to use the changed spelling, in an effort to rid the world of the pandemic.

“If u use the changed spelling of CARONAA and COVVIYD-19 by affixing the same to either door or in public places or by tying the banner in all public places, CARONAA will be disappeared from not only from Ananthapuram dist. but also from the world,” the banner reads. “This is guarantee as it is divine power as per NUMEROLOGY.”


I love how it keeps saying "Dangerous number" but not which fucking number it is.

President Joe Biden is plunging into the next phase of his administration with the steady approval of a majority of Americans, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The survey shows Biden is buoyed in particular by the public’s broad backing for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

In the fourth month of his presidency, Biden’s overall approval rating sits at 63%. When it comes to the new Democratic president’s handling of the pandemic, 71% of Americans approve, including 47% of Republicans.

The AP-NORC poll also shows an uptick in Americans’ overall optimism about the state of the country. Fifty-four percent say the country is on the right track, higher than at any point in AP-NORC polls conducted since 2017; 44% think the nation is on the wrong track.

Those positive marks have fueled the Biden White House’s confidence coming out of the president’s first 100 days in office, a stretch in which he secured passage of a sweeping $1.9 trillion pandemic relief package and surged COVID-19 vaccines across the country. The U.S., which has suffered the most virus deaths of any nation, is now viewed enviably by much of the rest of the world for its speedy vaccination program and robust supplies of the shots.

not him, but one could interpret the modern concept of the scientific method as the last functional result of philosophy (which is debatable, whatever, I'm not convinced that the past 90 years of philosophy have produced anything truly worth reading).
What a dumb take, especially if you're one of those fellers who thinks technology was a mistake (hi, we're on the internet, living in the most advanced period in human history in which anyone with a modicum of privilege/access to a library can learn whatever can be translated into text and images)
I think if he follows his path while, thanks to his narrow-minded approach to education, retaining the self-awareness of a vending machine, this path will lead him to religion.
That's nice.

Yo, you posted this a while ago, but I'll still respond to it like you give a fuck:
It's been found, over and over, that reading or watching fiction leads to deeper cognition and encourages empathy. It's easy to think that there's "better" or "worse" fiction for that, sure, but the basic takeaway is that friggin English class has a greater impact on character than any hard science.
Having just finished my reading of "The Rise Of The Tentacle Magician", I can assure you there is a sort of "worse" with exactly zero contribution to character growth.

What a waste of taxpayer money. There is not a single human alive who wants a "smart gun". Police unions are against their officers being mandated to use one. No gun company wants to funs something that isn't going to ever work or sell and there will be a huge run on handguns in the state due to fear of going back to the old law that banned actual functioning handguns

Hate all you want, its a winning strategy. The world gives religious dipshits way too much freedom.
The videoconference, scheduled for Wednesday, "is based on sheer lies and political bias," China's diplomatic mission to the United Nations said in a statement.

Beijing "urges the co-sponsors to immediately cancel this event which interferes in China's internal affairs, and calls on other Member States to reject the event."

"The current situation in Xinjiang is at its best in history with stability, rapid economic development and harmonious co-existence among people of all ethnic groups," the statement said.
At this point, I really gotta wonder why they didn't just come up with some pretext to deport all them folks. The whole North Korea treatment is a slow-bleeding PR nightmare--maybe the intent was to scare the shit out of all their other citizens?
The call went down like this:
China - I can do whatever I want

Israel - Fuck yea lets bomb some Muslims

Germany - But you didn't like it when we genocide

Brittan - That's cause you left your country if you had done that with in your own country no one would have cared & we'd exterminated the Irish by now.

Hong Hong - why to we get genocide then?

China - Because the British gave you back to us.

Africa - well they did not give us to you

School shooting in Russia kills 9 people; suspect arrested
Tue, May 11, 2021, 11:04 AM
MOSCOW (AP) — A gunman launched an attack on a school in the Russian city of Kazan that left at least nine people dead Tuesday — including seven youngsters — and sent students running out of the building as smoke poured from one of the windows.

At least 21 others were hospitalized, six in extremely grave condition, authorities said.

The attacker, identified only as a 19-year-old, was arrested, officials said. They gave no immediate details on a motive.

But Russian media said the gunman was a former student at the school who called himself “a god” on his account on the messaging app Telegram and promised to “kill a large amount of biomass” on the morning of the shooting.

Bro, he obtained the weapon illegally. He was a mental patient and bribed the doctor to get paperwork needed for permit.
Wrong thread, retard
Source? Because all I see is that he obtained a legal gun license for a semi auto shotgun. Having people slip through the legal cracks is arguably worse than having them break the law to get a gun.

Nope, you are just not in the loop :D It will change that... it should be be front page news!
under-reported story

The Alpha Hunter Biden, verses the Beta Cuck Trump


Two Trump family members got “inappropriately – and perhaps dangerously – close” to agents protecting them while Donald Trump was president, according to a new book on the US Secret Service.

Zero Fail: The Rise and Fall of the Secret Service, by the Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig, is published next week. The Guardian obtained a copy.

Leonnig won a Pulitzer prize in 2015, for her reporting on security failures at the Secret Service. She was also part of the Post team which won a Pulitzer for its work on Edward Snowden’s leaks about National Security Agency surveillance techniques and reported extensively on Russian election interference and links between Trump and Moscow. She has also won three Polk awards.

With Philip Rucker, Leonnig also co-authored A Very Stable Genius: Donald J Trump’s Testing of America, a well-received 2020 White House exposé.

In her new book, she writes that Secret Service agents reported that Vanessa Trump, the wife of the president’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr, “started dating one of the agents who had been assigned to her family”.

Vanessa Trump filed for an uncontested divorce in March 2018. Leonnig reports that the agent concerned did not face disciplinary action as neither he nor the agency were official guardians of Vanessa Trump at that point.

>"want these fat guys off my detail,” Trump is reported to have said
That's rich! The most obese US President since that absolute unit Taft, bitches about fatfucks that are less obese than he is.
You don't need to be in shape to know that fat cops are less effective than fit cops. Douchey thing for Trump to say, but your argument that he is also fat isn't the reason why.
The thing is they wouldn't be on the secret service if they weren't trained and ready, so he was just being an asshole.
It makes a lot of sense considering how short he is, also explains why Fox News dispatched the aging girlfriendbot Kimberly Guilfoyles to accompany him everywhere.
I always sort of admired her for being the only one in the family besides Baron to not get plastic surgery and for not getting involved with the campaign in the slightest.
Sure. That doesn't mean that pointing out that Trump is also fat has any relevance to the situation.

A petition calling for the cancellation of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games due to the COVID-19 pandemic has received more than 200,000 signatures in two days.

The petition has been addressed to International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach and International Paralympic Committee President Andrew Parsons.

Japan’s Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike, Tokyo 2020 President Seiko Hashimoto and Olympics Minister Tamayo Marukawa are also addressed in the petition.

In excess of 223,000 people have now signed the petition, which says the Games should be stopped to protect the lives of people in Japan.

The petition was launched by Kenji Utsunomiya, who lost to Koike in the Tokyo Governor election last year.

Utsunomiya had called for the cancellation of the Games as part of his campaign.

"The spread of new corona infections has not stopped at all not only in Tokyo but also in various parts of Japan and around the world to this day," Utsunomiya wrote on Change.org.

"Vaccination, which started at the end of last year, is currently only widespread in some areas such as Europe and the United States, and is not the decisive factor in preventing infection.

>Not every country is at the same point in the jewish influence corruption cycle

Rome and Greece, the foundations of Western Civilisation, didn't give a tinker's damn if someone was LGBTQ, there were even Roman Emperors who were gay and trans. It was the ascendancy of the corrupting jew death cult Christianity in Rome that led to you rightwing Fascists being fanatically homo/trans phobic. You've literally turned your back on Western Civilization to bow and scrape to a near eastern cult that worships a crucified jew. You're a sellout to Mordecai, Stormer.
You've convinced me. I'm now an LGBTQ ally. All hail western civilization.
You don't have to be an ally. You should probably just stop falling for the dipshit nazi narrative that gay and trans people existing is the end of civilization. It really is a shame to see people sink so much energy into a premise so cartoonishly retarded.
What's more, persecution just hardens the resolve of either perspective.
Being personally obsessed with neutrality, I'm always cognitively-grouping this nonsense with horseshoe theory

Hamas, an Islamic militant group that seeks Israel's destruction, has fought three wars with Israel since it seized power in Gaza in 2007. The group possesses a vast arsenal of missiles and rockets capable of striking virtually anywhere in Israel.

The rocket strike on Jerusalem was a significant escalation and raised the likelihood of a tough Israeli response.

Conservative theologies of Islam frown upon the use of most instruments, however most of the world's Muslims don't care. The singing ban is definitely Israeli propaganda though. No Muslims that I've ever heard of have issues with singing. The most conservative ISIS-tier Salafis actually believe that singing with no instruments is the only permitted music.
