It will be good to actually have a politician in the White House. You don't entrust your health to an unqualified outsider, you go to a doctor. Having an unqualified outsider in the White House for the last four years has been painful.

Congratulations Biden and Kamala.

He sent a strong message to his "allies" today when he put his full effort into killing off thousands of good paying jobs in Canada.

Well he is just reinstating the ban on the Keystone project that Obama had put on there in the first place. Blame Trump for giving them false hope by removing the ban. The climate is far more important than a few fossil fuel jobs.

Trump Has Reportedly Been Talking About Starting a New Party Called the ‘Patriot Party’

That's going to be pretty hard to do from jail... ;-)

Best case scenario is the senate vote to not allow him to run again. Worst case, he goes to jail.

You mixed up worst and best.

I was trying to look at it from his point of view. ;-)

As for Mitch, I loathe him, but he really knows how to twist the knife, doesn’t he?

Ha ha. My thoughts exactly.

Why left-wing liberal hate the President Trump?

If the left-wing liberal didn't start war on the President Trump and then America will be top of the world again.

If the president had represented the American people, the left would have left Trump alone. Trump is the cause, the war on him is the consequence. Not the other way around.

Trump's presidency (in no particular order): gave the rich a tax break that blew out the deficit, established a Muslim ban, ripped children away from asylum seekers, started a trade war with China that cost Americans $$$ and gained nothing, "fine people on both sides", almost started a war in Iran, lost the friendship of his allies, lost the GOP control of the house, the senate and the presidency, fired almost everyone he hired, twice, got impeached, twice, gave voice to the far right, blamed Antifa for everything, became besties with Putin, demonized the press, told more lies than every other American president, combined, bungled the coronavirus crisis, encouraged an insurrection on the Capitol, got booted from office but refused to admit being a loser.

Did I miss anything?

Looks like the time is up for Trump. Don't expect him to run again. Best case scenario is the senate vote to not allow him to run again. Worst case, he goes to jail.

Posted in: Caught off-guard by scant testing, Japan battered by COVID winter See in context

HBJ

Believe it or not, Japan's test positivity rate is not much different than in other countries.

So as so many people have been saying for almost a year now, the more you test, the more positives you’ll find. The current daily number in Tokyo is about 1,500 - but test 60,000 people and the number will be multiples of that. It’s common sense.

I don't think you understand what the test positivity rate means. If it is low, then it means that you are doing adequate testing. According to criteria published by WHO in May 2020, a positive rate of less than 5% is one indicator that the epidemic is under control in a country. Japan has a positive rate of less than 5%.

Its some kind of joke isnt it ?

It certainly is. Some far-right losers who were suckered into believing the lie that the election was fraudulent apparently have threatened violence.

And so the need for security.

A sad pathetic joke.

Yep, the market. A far more effective and efficient way to get resources where they should go.

I agree. We should implement a carbon tax.

Someone forgot to implement measures against a possible pandemic beforehand while broadcasting only climate change issues on all available propaganda channels.

Bill Gates had be warning about both a pandemic and climate change, we should probably listen to him.

You should really a little bit more concentrate and work on current circumstances, issues, catastrophies. You can fight your beloved climate change topic and all non-electric or whatever non-ecological cars and vehicles later, when you have solved current problems and survived these ones.

We can do both at the same time.

The climate is always changing. The extent to which humans can effect it is contentious at best. Our ability to change in ways we deem positive is almost entirely conjecture

Considering we know what is causing it (man made CO2 emissions) and so we have a direct way of controlling it (reducing man made CO2 emissions) I find your remarks puzzling.

Stop the over use of the "there was no fraud, move on",

Why?

did democrats, Biden, Pelosi or other ever stopped calling Trump illegitimate President? who robebd and hijaked the 2016 election?

No. They didn't. Clinton conceded the next morning.

Local hearings didn't just say "it was a fair election" they acknowledged some or several irregularities took place, but 1) failed to invistagate their extent (how many actual votes were affected by each airregularity) and 2) failed to invistaigate the origin, motiviation etc behind those, and still just claimed their existance didn't amount to much as to overturn an election, therefore nothing to be done. Most courts did the same, as Trump lawyers can only present as much evidence as volutariy, publicly available as possible. To prove and persecute large scale fraud, guess what? a full scale law enforcement lead investigation is needed!

Why? If there clearly is election fraud, the evidence would clearly be there. The way that Trump and team are looking at is that they didn't win, therefore fraud, therefore we need to find evidence. It's ass backwards. That's why nothing has changed. It's because Biden won by a landslide fair and square.

which is what was and has been denied. Therefore people whose strive to have that investigation at least reveal the truth in numbers, are rightfully angry.

No they aren't. They are angry because their guy didn't win and they can't accept losing.

Trump even said he would concede defeat if teh numbers were ratified against real people and real signatures on the ballot envelopes (oin the case of mail-in) so if a full scale deep investigation and ratified re-count had been done and say Biden were 78 million and trump 76 million, then that would have been the end of it.

Real signatures? Of course they are ratified against real signatures. It's a smokescreen.

But the courts and hearings only just said we con't bother to go that far, just move on. Even considerering the unconstitutional changes to the electoral law in several states!

The courts only judge on what's presented. Whether the changes were unconstitutional doesn't matter. The changes were made to keep people safe during Covid. Why would you be arguing that the vote wasn't suppressed enough for Trump to win?

Kaerimashita

Waste of time and energy. These clowns should be focusing on getting money to the needy, supporting the states in their pandemic efforts and looking at ways of otherwise helping the economy. Instead they are engaged in silly political gestures.

Just because they impeach Trump doesn't mean they can't do other stuff. I expect when Biden and Kamela are sworn in and the Georgia senators take their seats, that the Dems will push for higher payments to the needy.

Orange is not a clear and present danger. He is almost gone. 

The chance to completely get rid of Trump should not be thrown away.

Apple are merely asking Parler to institute a moderation policy that prohibits direct threats of violence and calls to incite lawless action.

Well by that logic..twitter should also institute a moderation policy for all the Jihadi types, Radical Left.. they are not calling for Peace,Love and Reconciliation..are they ?

If the Jihadi types have apps that have direct threats of violence and calls to incite lawless action, sure.

And speaking of twitter they even blocked NYPost when it broke the Hunter Biden story..i.e. you are only allowed one view point, that's it.

It's nothing about viewpoints. The images contained in the articles include personal and private information — like email addresses and phone numbers — which violate Twitter's rules.

Apple are merely asking Parler to institute a moderation policy that prohibits direct threats of violence and calls to incite lawless action. They aren't even mandating a Twitter style moderation of flagging misinformation.

This isn't about curbing free speech - it's about the safety of the users of Apple's platform.

The word is still out on whether the current vaccine will even be effective for this virus.

But there is no reason to expect that it won't be effective for this strain.

I know it's way too early, but I'm predicting the Dems get both seats. So then it looks like the Dems will gain control of the Senate. Good riddance Mitch who has never ever acted for the American people. There is hope for the US finally.

Posted in: Do you think those people calling for a lockdown in Japan have secure jobs and income? See in context

foreignbrotherhoodarmy

A lockdown is an idiotic idea, has it worked in other countries? Not one bit.

Actually no. New Zealand were able to eliminate the virus through a lockdown.

Keep everything open and moving, it’s a waste to try and compensate for the 0.0002% of people who will actually get this virus by shutting everything down.

Bogus percentage. It is way more infectious than that. And with the more transmissible strain potentially out there, it could turn into a disaster like the UK.

More harm than good.

Not true. Look at the UK. Things are getting out of control, and with the vaccine imminent, best to make sacrifices now for the future.

Mr. Noidall

Then, basically this is just another log on the fear fire?

Only if you feer lockdowns, because this variant is likely to require more lockdowns. That is because it spreads more easily and hence could get out of control in a population and overrun the hospital system, hence necessitating lockdowns.

I first had a look at your link, and it seemed to me like misinformation, so I had a look at Fat Emperor. He's much more convincing. The vitamin D information seems legit, probably more beneficial than vaccines.

Unfortunately most of them are misinformation, which is not surprising considering he is an engineer not a doctor.
