how could that be such a big deal to you? what does it hurt compared to confusing Libya and Syria in a public speech at the G7?
How embarrassing for Biden.
and again, Trump was not speaking at the G7. so its not relevant.
but it's still much better than a president who doesn't know the difference between the words "origins" and "oranges"

Called the RAF the RFA.
"We can work together with Russia – for example, in Libya. Biden confused Libya for Syria on two more occasions in his meandering diatribe.
COVID instead of COVAX. The White House issued a correction for the president, saying that when he said "COVID," he meant to say "COVAX." Biden reportedly made this same error on three different occasions during the press conference.
Forgot that someone was already introduced. "The world leaders laughed at Biden's forgetfulness at the G7 roundtable. Then the press was rushed out of the room."
when someone asked him a question- Jill Biden quickly interrupted the impromptu question, and frantically said, "Joe, c'mon," as she waved her hands for him to come with her, which elicited laughter from the people nearby. She then grabbed his hand and lead him away.

yet we werent talking about Trump, as he didnt speak at the G7.
So the US President should probably know the difference between Syria and Libya, no?
Did you think Biden's speech was great?

Yeah I do really wonder who decided this America leads the world thing? The other countries are really ok with this as long as Biden pays for everything I guess?

The right thing for who?
Currently 75% of EU nationals feel that the US can be trusted to do the right thing.
under the fat former guy it was 17%.

The set up also means that, while Biden is expected to press Putin privately on his destabilizing and aggressive activity, he will not call out the Russian leader for his actions in a public setting when the two are in the same room.”
expected to? How we will know if he does without him saying it in front of Putin?

no, that would not concern me, as none of it is actually true or relevant to the discussion here.
Sounds like a personal issue for a businessman who is not in office anymore.
As Trump is not President, and China is stronger than ever.
-3 ( +3 / -6 )
Trump isnt President anymore is he? Yet China is stronger than ever.
-5 ( +5 / -10 )
China is only stronger now due to their smart financial investments into a guy whose Daddy is now the President.
Daddy cant say anything to China himself, so he has to beg the G-7 to do it for him.

if that bothers someone, dont live in Texas.
Thats what is great about American, you have 50 states to choose from.
Each person can find the place they like which lets then live how they want to live. That has the laws, rules, regulations, gun/voting rights, schooling, tax policies they like.
But liberals cant accept that, they have to try to force every single state to be in their image.

or is was to not have to say it was the Black guy who was arrested for this.
Last time it was a white guy, we had a name, age, work history, criminal history, picture, social media and a statement from an ex-gf by now.
We don’t want to perpetuate the stereotype of a barely educated red neck being a danger to society when in possession of a firearm.

until said outsider educated themselves and realized that Democrats control the entire government now and can force any laws they want to be passed. yet they havent for this, why?
And outsider would probably think that Republicans/GQP want to kill off their own country into extinction. Far be it for me to stop them.

the local newspaper-
Editor's note- Police have only released a vague description of the suspected shooter. The Austin American-Statesman is not including the description as it is too vague at this time to be useful in identifying the shooter and such publication could be harmful in perpetuating stereotypes. If more detailed information is released, we will update our reporting.
dont they realize its immediately confirmed who did it when they act like this?

my comments are only about the media condition of the population for such incidents. They want you to remember some things about only some incidents and forget most others. Examples-
Columbine- white males, black trench coats, goth culture, Marilyn Manson type music
Atlanta- white male shot Asians, Asians as victims but not of Black violence, just white
Pulse Nightclub- a high number of victims, LGBT. but forget- who shooter was and his father actions later.
Dylan Roof- white male, supremacist, Black victims, Black church.
Any Black on Black crime- happens all the time, nothing really to see. But if you say it happens all the time, the response is "no it doesnt, you racist".
thats what we are dealing with, the conditioning of the population to care or not care and to selectively remember. its scary to see.

its sad when only certain media will report official police statements.
A statement from the Austin Police Department states:
The suspect(s) remains at-large. It is unknown if there is one, or multiple suspects involved. There is one suspect described as a black male, with dread locks, wearing a black shirt and a skinny build.

Any description of who they are looking for? “Two males”?
In Austin, authorities were searching for two male suspects in an early Saturday shooting

Why the hesitation for Biden to call out China without hiding behind a G7 statement?
Almost Half the G7 is fine with what China is doing because they like the trade.

its not like the government doesnt already take the money from us to pay for it.
priorities. The earth will not explode into flames tomorrow if the USA doesnt spend 1 to 30 trillion on climate change.
The federal government collected revenues of $3.5 trillion in 2019

you pass an infrastructure bill and identify how to pay for it with money you have.
as a priority over all the social justice causes and global warming. as a responsible adult would.
same as I pay my rent as a "need" before I start spending money I dont have on "wants".

“The revelation that the Trump Justice Department secretly subpoenaed metadata of House Intelligence Committee Members and staff and their families, including a minor, is shocking,” Schumer and Durbin said in a joint statement Friday.
leaks. who leaker? maybe him? yeah maybe. subpoena. prosecutor. could be him. judge. sign. get data. gag order.
Im sorry you dont understand.
-5 ( +1 / -6 )
come on man.
if Congress had done this subpoena it wouldnt be related to Trump at all, right? And the people whose metadata was "seized" would have known, because their Dem friends in Congress would have told them what they did.
It was the Trump DOJ. with a subpoena. from a judge. and as we know judges dont grant these unless they have reason to believe a crime is being committed. right? or has that changed since before?
-5 ( +0 / -5 )
the Trump DOJ subpoenaed these records not Congress. You dont even know who you trying to blame or what you are looking for.
At least a witch hunt. you are looking for a witch. What are you even suspecting was done here that is a problem? If you dont even know what you think is wrong but just want to look at everything to see IF you can find something, we call that a fishing expedition.
judges don’t sign congressional subpoenas. I’m not sure how many times you need to be told this.

oh kind of like an audit of election results? so all the facts can be known? got it thanks!
So basically everything that has ever happened in history, we dont have all the facts.
Why this one thing we need to know everything that happened?
You already determined the DOJ was weaponized, you have your conclusion in advance.
What is in dispute? that leakers can or cant be investigated? that a judge did or didnt sign the subpoena? what needs to be uncovered here?
So all the facts are known. That is the point of an investigation.

which had a 4 year investigation that found.....nothing of the sort.
The supposedly "factual evidence of his own government" meanwhile...being found to be not factual more and more every day.
Trump conspired with the Russian government and sided with Putin more than the factual evidence of his own government!
