How come it's not Russia 24/7 anymore on NPR, CNN, and in the NY Times?
Have they run out of lame tenuous connections that no one is buying and which break no laws? Seemed like they could make up a new story every week for the last 8 months.
Or have they realized that investigating further looks more likely to incriminate Hillary than Trump?

Again, doesn't that seem kind of self-congratulatory?
turn banks into highly regulated public utilities
The SOP is as follows: banksters first whine about too much regulations, and when those are removed (after hefty bribes), they go all out with stupid stuff, pay themselves billions, company is driven into ground, and then they go to politicians, bribe them once more - and - voila! - banks are solvent again, but banksters are billions richer.
none have job security
Nonsense!If you have skills you can put them to use or hire yourself out to someone. If you work hard and are willing to put in the effort you will be successful.
the congressional impeachment process exonerated him.
Only Trump possesses the truth now.
jazz_music saysDeregulation is really bad tooNot necessarily. Most regulations are designed to prevent competition by rivals and not to protect the public.John Kenneth Galbraith introduced me to this idea. It seems to be correct.
Deregulation is really bad too
Do you mean "end the fed"?
The VTB/DB note is still in force and ready to describe exactly who owns Donnie the Cunt.
If you work hard and are willing to put in the effort you will be successful.
Kind of amazing that Trump has been able to hide that note for so long, with Democrats baying for his blood for 4 years now.Trump must be some kind of genius, lol.Or maybe the note doesn't exist.
(Non-Jewish) White people
See Manafort - that is the only thing they could get him for.
He is better than Ms Clinton and Mr Biden by a mile, but he is not a saint.
The worst bailout ever just happened after 2 consecutive devastating tax gifts to the top wealthy few even. Those fucks just love Trump, and while Trump campaigns incessantly the GOP operates in the shadows shutting down any part of government that doesn’t directly benefit the top donors.
Who they? You mean the corrupt FBI?They investigated everyone around Trump looking for any kind of dirt and the only thing they could find is Flynn talked to the Russian ambassador and Manafort's dealings from long before he ever worked for Trump.Where's the beef?
Meritocracy fails, some are lucky. My point is that what you say is laudable but not good enough, not true enough, not even civilized. Then there are corrupt markets, and privileges inherited etc., etc.
Onvacation saysthe congressional impeachment process exonerated him. No Barr may have said that, I’m not sure what that even means in his position,
Sure, hard work still counts for something in America.But jazz is right about "privileges inherited". Black and Hispanic people get inherited privileges through the color of their skin alone.
(Non-Jewish) White people, on the other hand, are actively discriminated against because of the color of their skin. They are rejected from universities and not eligible for many scholarships and government programs for no reason other than their race.
they got Manafort for his Ukraine dealings,
Meritocracy is not a lottery. To be successful you need
What did Manafort do wrong in the Ukraine during his time with Trump?
If you are the best at what you do they will try to replace you with somebody younger who commands a lower compensation and ultimately you become unemployable no matter how great your skill and effort.
just hired cheaper youngsters screwed up bridge design, they went back on this and he still has a job. Luck, I guess...
It’s amazing that management couldn’t just pull a Trump and claim it is the greatest success.Such a situation will cost some manager their job every time if they can’t get out in front of it.
These days managerial types get cut only in extremely bad situations,
to be hired as VP for something for a much larger company
part of a dominant political party
That’s why I say meritocracy is a nice dream that owners wish you all to believe in but don’t ever dare to depend on it being true LOL.
from the Kissinger article:Robert Gates, former director of the CIA and U.S. Secretary of Defense, admitted in a recent interview with the Washington Post that sanctions against Russia do not any good for the U.S. In The National Interest, Robert Kaplan describes Russia as a “problem from hell” because it cannot be subdued. Kaplan offered reasons why it is necessary for Russia to “move away from its one-sided alliance with China” and find balance with the U.S.Washington’s misguided policy of aggression to maintain a unipolar world order worked in the favor of China and Russia, especially in accelerating their cooperation. The West can no longer suppress China’s economic power or Russia’s military power. Military strategists in the West are aware that the Russo-Sino cooperation cannot be compensated by anything.this is EXACTLY what I am trying to tell you; Patrick!!!! Biden is being an imbecile by provoking Russia and China at the same time. We should be cooperating and working with the Russians so as to draw them away from their tightening embrace of the ChineseRemember that this is one of the main reasons I told you that I have certain favorable attitudes towards Trump on this avoiding of foreign wars, and pointed out that if Hillary had been elected, we would have been at war in Syria in just a few months> https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/kissinger-warns-washington-accept-new-global-system-or-face-pre-wwi-geopolitical >> this is essentially what I'm telling you -- the US is done as the global hegemon, and this continuing shit of threatening and insulting and sanctioning and harassing Russia and China will lead to a catastrophe. We need to worry about securing our own borders, rebuilding our manufacturing economy, cutting down the power of the Banks, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, Financial capital in general, having valid education like we had after WW2 (doing away with overt ideological indoctrination ins schools), rebuilding our infrastructure. It is not our duty to mandate the international organization of Asia or E Europe, or to constantly interfere in the internal affairs of other countries. We also need to really really work on repairing the integrity and solidity of the dollar>>> Sent with ProtonMail Secure Email.>

Rasmussen Reports@Rasmussen_Poll24 Jul 2020The Real Russian SwindleEvidence dribbling out now indicates "Trump Russian Collusion" was a politically designed & media propelled fabrication. Relentlessly pushed & fake, it interfered with voter opinion, likely delivering the House to Democrats in the 2018 midterms. #sick
You are right about large companies - they PRETEND that there is meritocracy. Small companies would go out of business quickly if they do not hire good people. And we see the problem again - bailouts of large incompetents just because they have political clout. Let'em go broke, and smaller companies will pick up the pieces...

Trump DOJ Obtained Data on Schiff and Swalwell, Two Long-Time Champions of Domestic SpyingThe two California Democrats join the long list of politicians who enable spying on ordinary citizens, then angrily object when they themselves are targeted. The Trump Justice Department in 2017 and early 2018 issued subpoenas to Apple to obtain the communications records of at least two Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee, Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Eric Swalwell (D-CA). According to The New York Times, DOJ prosecutors attempting to determine who leaked classified information to the media about Russiagate suspected the two House Democrats were the culprits, and to prove that, they obtained their communications records as well as those of family members, including minor children.A DOJ leak investigation aimed at sitting members of Congress is highly unusual. Both the Obama and Trump administrations, in a hunt for leakers, created controversy by obtaining the communications records of journalists, including — in the case of the Obama DOJ — the family members of those journalists. But investigating members of the House Intelligence Committee for leaking crimes — as opposed to corruption or other standard criminal charges — can present different dangers. Neither Congressman was charged with any crimes and the investigation reportedly bore no fruit.The two House Democrats, among the most fanatical disseminators of baseless Russiagate conspiracies and long known to serve as anonymous sources of leaks to liberal media outlets, reacted with predictable outrage.
