Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood, let alone believed by the masses.

I cannot believe the disrespect the Trump is expressing to Japan. All to bro-up with the child emperor Kim. One can only wonder what will happen to Taiwan if the Trump bros-up with Xi. We have already seen the result of broing with Putin and Netanyahu.

This personality type, in addition to narcissism and bullying, is acutely aware of social hierarchy and attempts to ingratiate themselves with individuals of perceived higher social status.

So, you're upset with Trump "broing up" with Kim, Putin and others? Like he's doing just to be cool.

But why would we not want our President to have healthy relationships with other world leaders?

I know North Korea is a total shitshow... if the US was really the world police, we should go in their and overthrow that POS Kim. But the military, financial and global political repercussions of war with North Korea would be terrible for the world. They have nukes, the last thing we want is that little rocket man launching one.

And China and Russia are invested in North Korea... so it could get real ugly, WWIII type ugly.

That's not want we want. So, it's best to have healthy relationships with all world leaders to avoid the horrors of war. And if we work peacefully then hopefully we can help Kim and other world leaders that mistreat their citizens by showing how much more peaceful and successful western culture is.

The US should be in communication with Iran aswell to prevent any military conflict with them.

All world leaders need to communicate and put an end to war and continue striving for a more peaceful and prosperous world.

Happy (day after) Memorial Day

Tho I do not condone war, I pray God blesses the soldiers, their families and the adversaries.

And I learned something about why you sometimes see coins on fallen soldiers' tombstones.

"While visiting some cemeteries you may notice that headstones marking certain graves have coins on them, left by previous visitors to the grave. These coins have distinct meanings when left on the headstones of those who gave their life while serving in America's military, and these meanings vary depending on the denomination of coin. A coin left on a headstone or at the grave site is meant as a message to the deceased soldier's family that someone else has visited the grave to pay respect. Leaving a penny at the grave means simply that you visited. A nickel indicates that you and the deceased trained at boot camp together, while a dime means you served with him in some capacity. By leaving a quarter at the grave, you are telling the family that you were with the soldier when he was killed."

Your tax dollars at work:

Department of Energy rebrands LNG as "Freedom" gas.

https://www.energy.gov/articles/departm ... eeport-lng

“Increasing export capacity from the Freeport LNG project is critical to spreading freedom gas throughout the world...allows for molecules of U.S. freedom to be exported to the world”

It's embarrassing.


Here is another gem, the Sacramento baseball team showed this masterpiece of editing at their Memorial Day game. The soundtrack is an old Reagan speech. The editing equates AOC with Kim Jong Un as an adversary of America!

I hope whoever was responsible for that is fired. And a big fuck you to those who really are so insecure as to belittle and make fun of this freshman congresswoman, are you so insecure of your place in this world now?

Thanks for posting that ^^^ it does give one hope...

And this would surely be an incredible PSA. It seems like a lot of republicans or those that voted for him (except for his rabid base) are starting to question the wisdom of their vote, or at least I hope so.

from Fox News.

“In nine minutes, Mueller laid out the facts in the 448-page report: Russia interfered the 2016 election; Trump committed crimes; Barr lied; Congress must hold them accountable. Then for good measure, he repeated that Russia interfered in the 2016 election and every American should be concerned about it.“

I'm proud of the people of Hong Kong now. They turned out 1 million for a march last week in a city of 7 million. They are on the march again today at an estimated 2 million souls.



They are polite to medical!

Has a time lapse video of today's protests.

I love this story - it would be great to have this one as a burner, or maybe they are: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-48604933

Meanwhile, of course the news inside the Great Firewall is absurdly different: https://thediplomat.com/2019/06/what-ch ... -protests/.
