It’s a fallacy to place any significant stock in the fact that if our planet as we know it is wrecked by global warming later in the century, that it’s OK because we can colonized space.

“I have a message for all of you: the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon – and I mean very soon – come to an end. Beginning on January 20th of 2017, safety will be restored.” An early on cult leader lie from DJT’s GOP nomination acceptance speech.

No harm in Trump retweeting that Epstein was part of the “Clinton body count”. It’s not like someone drove from NC with an assault rifle to rescue the sexually abused children imprisoned by Hillary Clinton beneath a Washington pizza joint after Trump retweeted those promoting that theory. Here’s a theory, more realistic that what Trump retweeted—and that’s a low bar, but that’s how the GOP rolls. Sycophant William Barr learned that Epstein was going to blab about Trump’s involvement in Epstein’s sex abuse ring before he and Trump fell out, and Barr set in motion things that resulted in Epstein’s… Read more »

A Vince Foster for the modern age.

What I don’t understand is this… if the Clintons are really bloodthirsty and conniving murderers willing to carry out sophisticated hit jobs on anyone that poses a threat to their rise to power, how in the world has Trump not conveniently “choked on some KFC chicken skin”?
