Remember way back in 2017 when Fox News had the integrity to stand behind CNN and Jim Acosta? Don't think that would happen now. Fox should be kicked out of the press corp associations for agreeing to this. They would, rightly, loose their shit if Biden started only allowing MSNBC into his events.DeSantis signs restrictive Florida voting law at event exclusive to Fox News

We let them into the WTO; we sent the our businesses over there; we made trade deals. They are a controlled top-down economy. You will never compete and win against them unless you take back the means of production.

He’s running for Mayor of a city with the world’s largest Jewish population anywhere outside Israel, and is saying all the right things to assuage one of his largest potential voting blocks.Wasn't he from the Tech Industry previously? There's a lot of tech companies there, he might have contacts
I think it could be important that another prominent US politician has business ties with Israel, or any other country breaking UN conventionsHe may have, but his branding as a “tech investor” has sort of worn off over the past two years. He’s now more or less seen as a politician.
The problem is perspective / spin (depending on your perspective / spin) ... as it could also be said that the police restored peace after protestors rioted at the temple mount (one of the holiest Jewish sites in the world)Which were provoked by Israel storming Al-Aqsa one of the holiest Muslim sites in the world.
Palestine retaliating is terrorism but Israel killing innocents is fair game?
The amount of shit I've seen Israel pulling off just because "I cant comment on a complex situation" and anti-semitism makes me sick. Every other day I hear some kid or medic got shot. We have mountains of evidence that Israel are committing ethnic cleansing but they always get a free pass. Always. No nation even has the balls to condemn the killings because big daddy USA (Only seen SNP commenting on it).The problem is perspective / spin (depending on your perspective / spin) ... as it could also be said that the police restored peace after protestors rioted at the temple mount (one of the holiest Jewish sites in the world)
Something different needs to be tried as nothing so far has worked... sadly i have no idea what that someting is or what might work
But 50 years of US lead "peace process" has not delivered anything (though there has not been an all out regional war... but thats probably more due to the many smaller conflicts there has been) so yeah it must surely be time to try something new but as I say I have no idea who could lead that or what it might be
Remove that element in the ME & the whole issue is vastly altered.Soviets were genocidal manics and commited horrific atrocities but sometimes I think maybe they had the right idea about religion.
Absolutely no doubt.Tbf I'm sure humanity would have found another cause to murder one another.
I don't know if it would. If you look at it, even though the powers that be are manipulating people via religion, those same groups are generally also divided by race as well. I do not doubt that race could easily step into the void created if religion disappeared tonight. Religion/race/gender/identity/sexual orientation/etc. are all labels used by the power hungry to manipulate those they need to stay in power.Absolutely no doubt.
At least it potentially could be argued that such psychosis has some foundation in reality, albeit a potentially very tenuous one.
It sure would be a lot harder to create differentiation between types of people, however.
Without a doubt, but throughout time, the race/gender/identity/orientation phobias & have typically been couched & sold through religious prisms & views.I don't know if it would. If you look at it, even though the powers that be are manipulating people via religion, those same groups are generally also divided by race as well. I do not doubt that race could easily step into the void created if religion disappeared tonight.

From the Desk of Donald Trump...Cheney Declares War on Trump Moments After Her Ouster: Will Do All I Can to Ensure He Never Gets ‘Near the Oval Office’ Again

Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being. I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party. She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics or our Country. She is a talking point for Democrats, whether that means the Border, the gas lines, inflation, or destroying our economy. She is a warmonger whose family stupidly pushed us into the never-ending Middle East Disaster, draining our wealth and depleting our Great Military, the worst decision in our Country’s history. I look forward to soon watching her as a Paid Contributor on CNN or MSDNC!
That's the optimistic take. The pessimistic one is that the far-right Trumpists will destroy any opposition and the rest of the party will follow along. Hopefully it's different now that Trump isn't President any longer, but we saw what happened to the Never-Trumpers. They either turned into complete Trump lackeys or were utterly excised from the GOP.Bitter GOP infighting for couple of years wouldnt be the worst thing.
