Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has announced that the entire government is resigning in a surprise statement released shortly after President Vladimir Putin delivered his annual state-of-the-nation address.

Accepting the resignation, Putin thanked the ministers for their hard work and asked them to function as a caretaker government until a new one can be formed.

Medvedev and Putin had met for a work meeting to discuss the state-of-the-nation address earlier on Wednesday, the Kremlin said. Medvedev explained that the cabinet is resigning in accordance with Article 117 of the Russian Constitution, which states that the government can offer its resignation to the president, who can either accept or reject it.

If it's the result of a fair election, yes. Disagreeing with other doesn't justify despotism.

Puerto Rico's emergency services director fired after supplies from Hurricane Maria discovered
>mfw cnn and the gang all blamed the problems on puerto rico during and after hurricane maria on president trump being a racist, but later on it turns out the real issue was the corruption, dishonesty and incompetence of puerto ricans

Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vazquez dismissed the island's emergency services director, Carlos Acevedo, after supplies from Hurricane Maria were discovered in a warehouse, ABC News reports.

On Saturday, video was released that showed a warehouse in the city of Ponce filled with supplies, according to the network.

The 2017 hurricane caused massive damage to the island territory and left 2,975 people dead.

"There are thousands of people who have made sacrifices to bring help to the south, and it is unforgivable that resources have been kept in a warehouse," Vazquez said in a statement.

Vazquez gave island officials 48 hours to figure out why the supplies were being stockpiled.

She also nominated Puerto Rican National Guard head, Brig. Gen. Victor S. Perez, to lead the Office of Emergency Management in place of Acevedo.

Virginia became the 38th state to approve the Equal Rights Amendment the same week New Jersey's governor signed legislation to protect health care and three states saw voting rights victories.

The Virginia legislature made history this week by becoming the 38th state to approve the Equal Rights Amendment, but that was not the only news progressives celebrated. There were voting rights victories in Missouri, Texas, and Wisconsin, and New Jersey's governor signed laws protecting residents with preexisting conditions.

Read on to catch up on this week's wins.

>Virginia ratifies Equal Rights Amendment

The Virginia House of Delegates and Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment on Wednesday, making Virginia the 38th state to do so.

"For the women of Virginia and the women of America, the resolution has finally passed," Speaker of the House Eileen Filler-Corn said just before she announced the result of the House vote. Those gathered in the chamber erupted in applause.

The amendment, which would ban discrimination based on sex, has not been ratified by three-fourths of the states, the threshold necessary for amending the U.S. Constitution. However, when Congress passed the ERA in 1972, it set a deadline of 1979 for state ratification. Opponents of the ERA maintain the deadline has passed, but proponents argue the deadline itself is unconstitutional, according to the Washington Post.

>why did Al Gore pussy out and not challenge the election results more vigorously?
He did, you 'tard.
The Republican-dominated Florida Supreme Court had the final say, but the ultimate problem was this: after all the GOP fuckery, when the actual votes were cast, and there was no way to do anything more than count the ballots over and over, and it was just never going to come up "Gore".
I'd call you out for calling Gore a pussy, but no matter how horrible Bush/Chaney/the GOP was, Gore actually was a pussy, even though that played no real part in the horrifying debacle that was the 2000 Presidential election.
Instead, you should be asking yourself: "why didn't we get rid of the Electoral College 100+ years ago???"
Then at least, a few hundred mis-counted votes in any given state wouldn't change the course of American history.
>"why didn't we get rid of the Electoral College 100+ years ago???"
p.s.: The Republicans haven't taken the White House from the Dems with the consent of 51% of the voters since 1952.
Drunk as fuck, sad for America, headed to bed.
To play Devil's Advocate, what would you say about the evidence the Heritage Foundation brings about Voter Fraud?
>"why didn't we get rid of the Electoral College 100+ years ago???"
The Democratic party's preferred solution to their consistent tactical errors and limp wristedness is to change the rules to make it easier for them to win rather than just becoming less weak and dumb.
Step back from your partisanship for a second and ask if you really want the party of the dumb and weak to be running your country for you.
You don't.
If the Democrats can smarten up and try to win in America instead of just NY & LA - like Bill Clinton did and his dumb wife didn't - then they'll have a shot at the top office. Al Gore ran an effete Kennedy style campaign just like Kerry and Hillary. Bill Clinton campaigned in McDonalds and competed in belching contests for publicity and he unseated a sitting president. Donald Trump, who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth from a solid gold pussy in a hospital made of diamonds, was more a man of the people than Hillary was. You people picked her over Bernie who can talk politics while doing bong hits behind the gas station.
I bet you've already forgotten who her VP pick was
Fucking this.

Ultimate redpill: Trump -> Bush -> Clinton -> Bush -> Reagan -> Nixon -> LBJ = Same fucking guy*
*minor policy differences aside.

The only outliers were Obama and Carter who won their elections due to very specific and unusual electoral conditions (black guy, nixon impeachment).

The voice actor who plays the Indian character Apu in The Simpsons has said he is stepping down from the role, following years of controversy.

White actor Hank Azaria has performed the voice of the Indian convenience store owner since the character was created in 1990.

But the character has been accused of reinforcing racial stereotypes.

It was not immediately clear if Apu would get a new voice or be dropped from the cartoon.

"All we know there is I won't be doing the voice anymore, unless there's some way to transition it or something," Mr Azaria told the website SlashFilm.

"We all made the decision together... We all agreed on it. We all feel like it's the right thing and good about it."

Controversy over the character of immigrant shopkeeper Apu Nahasapeemapetilon intensified in 2017 when Indian-American comic Hari Kondabolu made a documentary saying he was founded on racial stereotypes.

In show he's well-loved by everybody, his sharp business acumen leads him to have a very successful store, he's pious, he takes pride in what he did, and is pretty smooth with the ladies. That's of course not mentioning that he also has a happy, healthy marriage that's stood the test of time. And what I really think is great about him is that he's totally a part of Springfield without abandoning his roots. He's unapologetically Indian, and I think that rules.

What a crock of shit! This decision makes me angrier than I thought it would. They better not get rid of him altogether. Not that I can do anything about that, but I will be even more cross.
>>534102 *pride in what he does
Foster Brooks offends me as a white person, I think the Library of Congress should stop keeping the Dean Martin show in it's archives. Any negative portrayal of whites should be seen as an attack on all whites.
he'll probably become a background character with some reused audio lines that they are sure won't "offend" anybody if he absolutely must speak sometime

i'd rather have them remove him completely than to replace his voice with someone else to be honest. and then the show would have a less diverse cast of characters thanks to the outrage mob.

>Military service was once spread fairly evenly — at least geographically — throughout the nation because of the draft. But after the draft ended in 1973, enlistments shifted steadily south of the Mason-Dixon line.

>In Los Angeles, a region defined by liberal politics where many families are suspicious of the military, the Army has struggled to even gain access to high schools.

Racist liberals promote stereotypes to keep lessor races from joining
>“I told him from the educator perspective, we sometimes feel they are targeting our black and brown students and students of poverty,” she said. And therefore they are less likely to push enlistment.

>Recognizing it cannot sustain recruitment numbers by relying only on the South and military communities, the Army has tried to broaden its appeal. Slick ads on social media offer less of the guns-and-grunts messaging of decades past. Instead they play up college benefits and career training in medical and tech fields.
However, those jobs will be dead ends since anti-american liberals prefer to out source IT job to foreign nationals that are basically slaves rather then hire local citizens that they need to pay fair wages.

>Even within one state there are striking differences in how communities view military service. Colorado Springs produced 29 times as many enlistments in 2019 as nearby Boulder, a liberal university town.
One as one child that escaped the liberal cult put it
>“I’d always had an itch to serve in the military and be useful,” she said. “I think it took me being on my own for a while to realize it was a possibility.”
>“The conversation was not ‘What do you want to do after high school?’ but ‘Which college are you going to go to?’”

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Senate impeachment trial on whether to remove U.S. President Donald Trump from office formally began on Thursday even as a congressional watchdog found that the White House broke the law by withholding security aid for Ukraine approved by Congress.

The assessment from the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office was a setback for Trump, even though it was unclear if it would figure in his trial in the Republican-led Senate given that key issues such as whether witnesses will appear or new evidence will be considered remain up in the air.

Democrat Adam Schiff, who heads a team of seven House of Representatives members who will serve as prosecutors, appeared on the Senate floor to read the two charges passed by the House on Dec. 18 accusing Trump of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress arising from his dealings with Ukraine.

Chief Justice John Roberts, wearing his black judicial robe, was led onto the Senate floor by four senior lawmakers. He took an oath to preside over the trial and then swore in the assembled senators, instructing them to raise their right hand, asking, “Do you solemnly swear that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of Donald John Trump, president of the United States, now pending you will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws, so help you God?”

The 99 senators present signed their assent one by one. One senator - Republican Jim Inhofe - was in his home state of Oklahoma to be with a family member facing a medical issue, according to his office, but was due to sign later in the day.

Nope. Suspected. His obstruction of justice has kept us from the “known” part.

Fearing potential violence, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is declaring a state of emergency and is banning firearms and other weapons on the Capitol grounds in Richmond ahead of a gun rights demonstration planned for next week.

"We have received credible intelligence from our law enforcement agencies that there are groups with malicious plans for the rally that is planned for Monday," Northam said during a press conference Wednesday afternoon.

Gun rights supporters are preparing to converge on Richmond for a lobbying day and a rally Monday morning. They're opposed to efforts by Virginia Democrats — who've just taken over control of the Virginia legislature following the November 2019 elections — to pass a slate of gun control bills backed by Northam.

According to a report by the Funke media group, the EU wants to cut its aid payments to the country by 75 percent. This is the result of a letter from the EU foreign policy commissioner Josep Borrell to the European Parliament.

The reasons are the gas dispute with Turkey in the Mediterranean and Ankara's military offensive in Syria. The payments made by the EU to Turkey under the refugee agreement remain unaffected by the cuts.
The EU has decided to cut aid further, so that by 2020 75 percent of the originally planned allocation will be canceled, according to the letter from Borrells. According to the EU Commission, Turkey will only receive 168 million euros this year from the so-called IPA program for the accession to the Union.

Nikos Dendias added that Greece is ready to help with the next day in Libya, either by participating in the forces needed to maintain the truce (note: international truce surveillance mechanism) or by the participation of Greek forces in the European operation of arms embargo and mercenary transport in Libya. These actions help to create a better reality in Libya and are a contribution to the future of the Libyan people and Libyan society”.

Six tourists arrested after feces found in sacred Machu Picchu area


Lima (AFP)

Six tourists, including a French woman, have been arrested over accusations that they damaged Peru's cultural heritage by defecating in a sacred temple at the iconic Machu Picchu sanctuary.

"The six tourists are being detained and investigated by the public ministry for the alleged crime against cultural heritage," Cusco regional police chief Wilbert Leyva said on Monday, quoted by the local Andina news agency.

The tourists were arrested on Sunday after park rangers and police found them in a restricted area of the Temple of the Sun, an important site at the Inca citadel.

Leyva said authorities had come across a "fracture" in a piece of stone that had "broken off a wall and caused a crack in the floor."

Dr. Bruce Coffey and his degenerate wealthy sons helped fuel the opiate epidemic crisis in Oneida, Tennessee. Some dumb fuck town, perfect location for a million-dollar drug operation. And you would think, his 500 patients a day would be enough money for his whore family, but it wasn't. He also owned the pharmacy next store he'd send the victims to get their dope from.

Assholes like this one, are what politicians (left and right) and local law enforcers allow to do business that destroys our families in this nation. It took a "federal investigation" to take this scum bag down. Yet, he's still running his drug businesses! Thanks to his local and state supporters in government and the judicial system.

These doctors are idiots from the get-go! Privileged retards. Their educations are paid for. Even the test and exam scores! So when they finally get that "doctor" title, they do what most dummies with drug connections do, start selling drugs. But this prick was selling so many addictive pills, it was enough to supply the entire town; 15 pills per resident, per day!

Assholes, like this guy, turn our children into drug addicts. And they get away with it! Local protection. It's always local.

We need a FEDERAL POLICE agency. Police to police the police. Like a big brother watching you. But not in a hillbilly way. That's just sick.

All drugs should be legal along with prostitution. If I want to slowly and quietly kill myself with drugs in the privacy of my own home while someone is paid to suck my dick then the government has no business telling me I can't.
>Hundreds of thousands of Americans before you fought and died to create and preserve

Oh, sweetie. You don't actually believe that enriching defense contractors and advancing imperialism across the globe has anything to do with "preserving" our nation do you?
my psychiatrist gives me nice adhd meds and clonazepam for my adhd, fear, panic, a depersonalization. guy keeps a close tab on my pills and actual need. Never overprescribes. It is overall helpful and with minimal side effects. Straightened my life out 60%. Sometimes I skip a day or two or go on a drug holiday for a couple of weeks or months. I don't think I'd be taking these schedule 2 stimulants or schedule 4 tranquilizers If I hadn't gone to med school, but I am sure glad I have reasonable access to them. Can't wait to be over with School and go to work and live with no need for the pills. The cognitive behavioral therapy will last forever at least so I guess I will be "cured".
But yea opioids are a whole different ballgame to most prescription medication. The limiting factor is usually the mixed in acetaminophen so as to act as a toxic barrier. I am glad they are there for cancer patients or extreme forms of some common diseases like rheumatism. Not bad for 2 or 3 days after a major surgery either.

I just never got how or why someone that wasn't old, terminal, or otherwise afflicted with a rare disease would ever be up for consideration for opioids.

You know most people are morons and will probably mix the opioid accidentally with some Benadryl and go to sleep forever (respiratory depression). I'd avoid prescribing that kind of shit to my future patients just because I don't trust them not to do something stupid with the pills. These days you can give gabapentin for neuropathic pain like in diabetes, and normal excedrin is already great for tension headaches and migraines. Sumatriptan for severe migraines. Maybe a nice antidepressant if the physical pain is because of psychological issues that can't be talked out of them. I just don't have a fucking clue how any doctor 20 years ago thought it was reasonable to prescribe codeine for migraines. That stuff is just some match heads and petrol away from becoming krokodil.

Also alcohol(more so)and weed are bad

Maxine Waters is a Retard
>Rep. Maxine Waters thought she was talking to Greta Thunberg. It was actually Russian trolls.
The call starts innocently enough: Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) warmly greets the voices on the line, whom a staffer identifies as Greta Thunberg and her father, Svante. They share a laugh about Waters’s nickname, “Auntie Maxine.” The congresswoman praises her young caller for her climate change activism.
“You have made quite a big, big, big, big thunder on this issue. I am really, really very proud of you and the work that you’re doing,” Waters is heard saying.
The congresswoman and her staff thought they had connected with Thunberg, the 17-year-old Swedish climate activist who was recently named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year.” In reality, two 30-something Russians, Vladimir “Vovan” Kuznetsov and Alexei “Lexus” Stolyarov, were on the other end of the line. The duo describe themselves as comedians and pranksters, but they are widely suspected of having ties to the Russian government.
Audio from the call with Waters was posted to the pair’s YouTube page on Thursday, along with a cartoon animating the approximately 10-minute interaction as part of their comedy video series called “Stars Save the Earth.”
It’s unclear when exactly the call took place. Waters’s office did not respond to questions seeking details about how the call was arranged or whether her office has screening or security protocols for phone calls.

The lack of inspections, oversight, and prosecution is a direct result of picking Pruitt to run the EPA, since he doesn’t believe in environmental oversight or protection.

It’s being worked on now, do you expect Trump to march over there and grab a shovel himself?
