lol, at the quoted and bolded.  Nunes never said that Trump or his team were under surveillance.  He said they (and possibly Trump himself) were picked up inadvertently because foreigners were under legal surveillance.


I'm sure all the rubes like Dave are going to eat this up.

Here is a transcript from Monday that goes into detail about who is authorised to unmask (about 20 people have this authority) and under what circumstances this will occur (ie when those surveilled are discussing criminal activity).

Fundraising Email that was sent out. 


I love the bait and switch.  From "Obama asked the UK to illegally wiretap Trump Tower"  to "We were recorded talking to Foreign Agents under FISA surveillance.  This is what the President was talking about all along, even though he just found out about it this afternoon."

You do not know the definition of a shyster.  You have some shyster characteristics.  Savory does not.

Well use whatever word you want for someone who misleads people by using photographs from different seasons to imply a difference in management, or claiming that his system isn't replicable while claiming that he can generalise to the world from his data, or blaming results he doesn't like on "reductionist" approaches while applauding results he does, based on those exact same approaches.

I'd call that "shyster".  Call it whatever you want. But it isn't honest.

I honestly wonder if dave will ever find the balls to tackle the photo cpmparison issue.
He never really engaged with Kariegasfontein Ranch back in the day.   http://talkrational.org/archive/showthread.php?p=2464835#post2464835


He briefly admitted "something didn't add up" then realized his Heresy and started on about wood chip mulching.

So safe money is on "no"

Its amazing to me how Dave can always tell, even if someone is making loads of money from their enterprise, who is a "pure of heart Maverick" and who is "the Shyster just in it to make money"

Dave, I'm exhausted from all the waiting.  It's plain that Trump lied.  I guess no one's head is going to roll?
It will happen.
Very interesting items will come to the forefront in the next two weeks.
Or right after the bombshell is dropped about what Trump's investigators found in Hawaii.
Six years ago.



I guess the only heads rolling will be those of vulnerable Americans, as their support is reduced to ever more pitiful levels.

My Dad served with the RAF in America during WW2. He always maintained that Americans were the kindest and most generous and warmhearted people anywhere ever. He is spinning in his grave right now.

WHAT THE FUCK, AMERICA?


Most individual Americans are cool.  Americans in large groups, less so.

Senate Intel leaders: No indication Trump Tower was tapped
It's the second congressional rebuke of the president's claim in two days


The Republican chairman and top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday shot down President Donald Trump's claim that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower in the run-up to the 2016 election.

Their statement comes a day after the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee also cast doubt on Trump's claim.

The stunning rebukes from senior Republicans are the latest sign that many in the GOP are increasingly frustrated with a president who has made a habit of hurling inflammatory insults on Twitter at his political rivals -- or even his reality-television rivals -- often without evidence and sometimes based on conspiracy theories.

I have been defending trump about this, in an ironic way, ever since it occurred to me he might not have known he was accusing obama of a crime.  it would not surprise me if he thought this was how wiretapping ordinarily happens:  the president says "wiretap that guy" and they go wiretap him.

as always, the most underappreciated thing about trump is that he doesn't know anything about the presidency.
It has astonished me for years how many Republican politicians know very little about most subjects outside of politics and sometimes business. Trump's only unusual in that he's uninformed about how government is run as well.

On the topic of women, women's anatomy, rape, pregnancy, alone, Republican politicians seem outlandishly and even naively uninformed and misinformed, so that you get repeated public pronouncements that make them look like flaming idiots. All I can figure is that they've been so focussed on the machinations of government that they've never had time nor interest for learning anything else.
If it was a *legitimate* wire tapping the Republican body has ways of shutting the whole thing down.

Infowars sponsors a journalist's trip to Malmö, Sweden, but he finds little evidence of a Muslim crime wave
Quote
The Swedish newswire TT News Agency talked with Pool following his visit to Rosengård, and he said, "If this is the worst Malmö has to offer, then don't ever come to Chicago."

And the reason mine is low labor is because I have a better understanding of ecosystem than you ... specifically, I understand the role of keystone species in ecosystems and how to manage them to enhance that ecosystems.

You apparently do not.

No you don't. You decide for yourself what species is a 'keystone' species and declare it so. That is not how it works. So quit saying you understand ecosystems. You don't.

You've repeatedly said you don't know and don't care what lives on your own property, let alone the surrounding lands. You cannot 'enhance' an ecosystem when you have no clue what already inhabits it.
He has many times stated that his methods "increase biodiversity" which I guess is technically true because what was just a "pasture", is now a "pasture + a couple goats"

So what I am seeking to do is solve the  problem at it's root.   The root problem for harried families running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to make ends meet is that they really need to be taught how to live again.  They've been sold a bill of goods by our corporate dominated society and they are literally enslaved and don't know how to become unenslaved.
I think I know where I've heard this before...


Also, LOL at the idea that Dave is the only one "really living"

Anyway, if anyone's interest was piqued on this nutter, Mike Adams, here's another sample of his latest thinking

RED ALERT: Fascist Google begins PURGE of pro-Trump websites as prelude to massive false flag or coup attempt

:rofl: 

Quote
Now, Natural News has learned that the take down of NaturalNews.com is just the opening salvo of a massive free speech purge from Google to silence pro-Trump voices across the 'net. After my announcement yesterday that described Google's outrageous censorship of Natural News, I have been contacted by several other site owners who say they were also taken offline at about the same time.

Good to know there is some degree of right-wing lunacy Hawkins is reluctant to openly embrace.
Haha "Taken Offline"...    They're still online.   They're just not indexed by Google.  Can the Government force a private company to link to sites that run counter to its "sincerely held beliefs"?   Seems like something the Free Market could take care of, no?

Just today.  http://www.redstate.com/jaycaruso/2017/02/25/trump-tweets-national-debt-drivel-saw-fox-friends/

Oh look, Trump mindlessly tweeted the dishonest bullshit he saw on Fox News again, what a shock.

Trump is pathetic. It's amazing to watch Dave twist himself into pretzel shapes trying to defend this completely incompetent and dishonest tool.
No no no.  Trump has some inside information which allows him to take credit for the change in the national debt last month even though the government is still operating under Obama's budget.

my understanding of VX is based on The Rock

I assume its effects are as fast and dramatic as in the movie.

At high doses, it can kill you within minutes, and the more minor (well, :airquote: minor :airquote: ) symptoms don't really develop because there isn't enough time. So people with high exposures go straight to seizure and then death by paralysis of the diaphragm and interruption of the respiratory control center. At lower doses, things progress more slowly, but the LD50 is really, really low.

Among the things that I remember about that movie that are complete horseshit are that VX was shown to be super corrosive and omg it's burning through everything! (it's not) and that it immediately turned into vapor when exposed to air (it has low volatility, so it hardly evaporates, even when put on skin). It has to be aerosolized to be spread as an inhaled agent, and there's not much vapor risk in the typical liquid form. I vaguely remember Nicolas Cage injecting himself with something, and that actually is a thing. Deployed soldiers are given atropine/2-PAM autoinjectors in case of nerve agent attacks. The thing is that if you've had significant exposure, the autoinjector is basically just buying you a little bit more time. You need monitoring and diazepam and maybe more injections, plus support therapy to get you through the days it takes for the body to replenish its supply of acetylcholinesterase, which is what the agent binds to and deactivates.

(Chemistry is fun when it's not making you want to kill yourself! :eng101: )
And now I have to watch The Rock tonight.   "Losers do their best, winners go home and fuck the prom queen"

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
I hope it leads to a general walkout.  Trump will asphyxiate without coverage that reaches hundreds of millions.
It will literally end up just being Brietbart in the room, which I'm not sure isnt their end-game to begin with.

I have it on good authority that Natural News was penalized by Google for a "sneaky mobile redirect" that broke their terms and conditions. This happens to a lot of sites. All Mike Adams has to do is fix it and file a reconsideration request to Google and it is all fixed. I will come back and post a link to a story on this when its posted.

It will be interesting to see if he does that, as it will not play into his conspiracy narrative.

People, you are trying to explain differences and similarities to someone who groups ducks with fish.
Thanks, Mr. BirdsAreDinossurs

There are obvious anatomical homologues between birds and dinosaurs.



You have failed to point out any homology between the process of democratising a monarchy and ceding national power to a supra-national entity.

I pointed out that the homology would be ceding power from Trump to Ryan.

Wrong. Birds developed from pterosaurs. See pterosaurnet.blogspot.com for more information.
University professors developed from jellyfish. Read about it at professorjellyfish.com.
THEN WHY ARE THERE STILL JELLYFISH!

Are you even trying any more, David?

Natural News, a website run by Mike Adams, the self styled Health Ranger, is a festering cesspool of junk medicine, pseudoscience and conspiracy theories. There isn't one positive thing I can say about the website, but there's very good news - Google blacklisted Natural News. If you use Google (who doesn't?), then perform a search for "Natural News" or the title of any story on that website, the actual website (naturalnews.com) does not appear at all in the search results. The only results that seem to appear are articles about Natural News. And a wonderfully snarky RationalWiki article.

Of course, Mike Adams went nuclear, something he's done in the past with Dr. David Gorski. In response to the Google action, Adams posted an article, "GOOGLE blacklists Natural News... removes 140,000 pages from its index... "memory holes" Natural News investigative articles on vaccines, pharma corruption, fraudulent science and more." Apparently, Adams jumped off the cliff of delusion down into the cave of hilarity. This has apparently unhinged him in ways that we skeptics have never quite been able to do, despite pointing out every dumb thing he's ever written.
