heh Trump already attacked said Navy Seal.... can't make this shit up!

Hunter Biden is not going to be president is he? Last time I checked Hilary is also not running or am I having a deja vu (emails are back too!)? :) Interesting that wsj.com, which is owned by the same worm, meant person, has nothing on this "news."

The hypocrisy is strong on trump supporters. Kushner and Ivanka are there pulling strings, plus other family and friends... all involved in both government and family business. You need to be a special kind of stupid to think that the "no salary" make this OK, because that's peanuts for these people.

Also Follow the money on Kushner - Real estate dealings are public record in the US.

We did not even talk about the "handling of the pandemic" which has been declared over by these folks, so it must be. :D I'm glad hydroxychloroquine saved the president's life, so at least he was right about one thing... oh I see. He did not take it when he actually got sick. Sounds like someone made a hell lot of money on it!

I truly believe that folks who think this is all "normal" election are not grasping at what's really going on. Or perhaps it is just a natural selfish state. They may even be happy with this particular authoritarian president, but how about the next one? Real change is needed so that a Donald Trump never happens again (republican or democrat).

I read Amy Coney Barrett has been a judge for merely 3 years, only a law professor before that. Is that true? In normal democratic countries 3 years of experience as a judge (or any other job for that matter) is considered to be a n00b and would never get into any supreme court for life tenure. This means she has impressed Trump and his criminal cronies in such a short time, which is a huge red flag. The US is a hot mess. :doh:

Johnson and Hancock keep bleating on about NHS Track and Trace -except it doesnt actually exist.

They privatised it in June to reward Tory donors with lucrative government contracts despite the dubious and dodgy records of performance, including criminal behaviour, of those Tory supporting companies.

'Consultants' of these companies are paying themselves £8000 a day. with our money. 

They had to send off almost 200,000 swabs and tests to other countries to be processed as the testing lab network introduced by the private providers doesn't actually have Labs. 

They want the chaos to continue as they get richer, meanwhile people are dying horrible deaths....

you do not even have to had ANY legal experience or education to be a Supreme Court justice in the US

Rump could literally nominate both of these two sacks of dogshit, and as long as a Rethug-controlled Senate approves them, onto the SCOTUS they go

FOR LIFE

Donald Trump suggested last night that he has $400 million in debt. He does not. He owes more than $1 billion. We have the documents, and you can see them here.

 

Donald Trump Has At Least $1 Billion In Debt, More Than Twice The Amount He Suggested

The most worrying thing about the impending US election, isnt that the choices are Biden or Trump, ridiculous in itself, but that both sides have said they will not accept the result.

Real chance of another Civil war.

All empires collapse sooner or later, and it looks as though the United States one will from within.

Biden never said he would not accept the result

the only thing said was that he should not concede before all the votes are counted

Trump, on the other hand, said the only legitimate result is him winning

Trump will lean HARD into the Red Mirage (Red Mirage is the map looking like a Rethug blowout at first due to massive amount of Dem votes not being counted as they mostly will vote non-same day, and Repugs will be the opposite)

and claim the Blue Shift is illegitimate (Blue Shift is the inevitable massive Democratic vote totals going up and up as mail-in ballots are counted)

he will try and stop all further counting (ultimately banking on the SCOTUS to end it illegally, that why he is so desperate to get his catholic death cult  ultra crazed RW'er whore on the Court before the election), and will try and have Rethug state legislatures send in a separate set of electors if he loses a state where the Rethugs control the state legislature

He said  "make sure to vote because the only way we lose this is by the chicanery going on relative to polling places." (Pennsylvania speech then later on said he would accept the result)

Both a pair of cunts. Mickey Mouse would be better.

Biden is shit, but Trump is death

fucking yanks are indeed cunts for getting into this nightmare

average empire lasts around 250 years 

their time maybe up soon, unfortunately they have 10,000 nukes floating around in the aether

For those not aware, there have been major protests in Nigeria calling for the abolition of a controversial police unit called SARS, short for the Special Anti-Robbery Squad. It was formed back in the 80s to tackle armed robbery in urban areas targeting banks and convoys... However in recent years it has devolved into a rogue unit that extorts innocent civilians on the road, and it has been linked with many extra-judicial detentions and killings. They specifically target young people based on spurious reasons (hairstyle, dress, car being driven), wrongly labeling many as fraudsters.

So in recent days there have been numerous peaceful protests across different cities in Nigeria calling for their abolishment, at levels not seen since the early 90s. The government have a strangle hold on the major TV stations so they initially refused to cover the protests, hence the youths have deliberately paralyzed several choke points in different states in the country, in order to force attention to the issue. In addition, the youth led protests have been given attention by Afrobeats musicians and celebrities who now have more of a following outside the country. The government initially acquiesced to the demands by declaring the end of the unit, but then created another unit called "SWAT". There are concerns that such declarations are just changing the name of "SARS" to "SWAT". As of today, the protests continue within and outside the country. Very interesting to see whether the protests evolve to a more strategic wield of power by the youth against many of the issues plaguing Nigeria, or they fizzle out. Hoping for the former.

yes, I have been following this

it first caught my eye because of the name of the goon squad (SARS) 

I hope they shut it down on a permanent basis and the victims get the justice they deserve

Nigeria is one of my long term areas of concern

by 2100, the global population (after peaking at close to 10 billion in 2050-2060) will be massively lower than it is now

a HUGE drop off

India, China, etc etc will be massively smaller in population by 2100

Some nations like Japan and Spain, etc will be less than half what they are now

there is one exception

Nigeria

it is tracking to an INSANE 900 million people by 2100

it will be one of the biggest disasters in human history if these meta-trends for Nigeria are not stopped in time

you cannot have around 90% of one billion people living in that relatively small area

I wish you well
