Trump is officially the POTUS. This is great.

But here's what would be even better; if the Democrats dropped this 'Us vs Them' mentality, accepted their loss, and actually tried to put the right foot forward to work together with the Republicans.

Republicans won, Democrats lost. In other words, the absolute smartest thing all the Democrats can do right now is accept Trump as their leader and try to work with him.

Well done brothers. We fought a long and hard battle. Everyone was against us. The globalist interests. The media. The rest of the world.

We've come a long way and today we get to taste victory for certain.
Tonight marks the day the west wakes up from its decadent slumber of passivity as the slime of globalism has eroded our birthright and our societies degenerated from their standing just decades ago.

Ad 2016 set a new tone in the world. The people have fought back. Democracy has proven to still be alive, although contested by those who support it only in name.

May God bless the Trump administration for the next 8 years!
And may we restore to the west these values we took for granted; sanity, national pride and cultural identity.

I raise my glass for you to join me in celebration of this day!
Ave ad occidentalem!

Yeah, if you watch them sign an important deal, it looks bizarre. I saw one where Obama literally had to use a different pen for each letter of his full name. Usually they go to people directly involved with sponsoring a bill and any representatives from a population impacted by the bill.

He used 22 pens to sign the ACA.


Article says it goes back to Roosevelt.


>The rationale is fairly simple. The pen used to sign historic legislation itself becomes a historical artifact. The more pens a President uses, the more thank-you gifts he can offer to those who helped create that piece of history. The White House often engraves the pens, which are then given as keepsakes to key proponents or supporters of the newly signed legislation.

LBJ apparently used 75 pens for the Civil Rights Act.

This is an attempt to dehijack a thread on /weed/....

So, Jeff Sessions is set to be our new Attorney General.
He has also said that "good people don't smoke marijuana," and sworn that we need more drug war bullshit.


Here are the options the government can take, BTW against legal weed sales.


This puts us in a bad place, I think, because a guy like Sessions is likely to go full retard and pump up the DEA, etc and start doing local state raids like the bad old days. All he has to do is shut down dispensaries and related businesses...hell, just shutting down 10% will probably chill the market considerably and make shit hard for legal weed states.

Some argue that this is impossible given the GOP's promise to cut the budget, etc etc... But, history has show the GOP has no problem with spending when it is on something THEY want. Iraq War...War on Drugs...etc.

What say you?

Problem is, Sessions is an idealist. He thinks if he throws enough money and manpower at something like this, it will go away. He also believes that a magic man lives in the sky and made Donald Trump president. So, you know...he is used to thinking foolish things.

Here is a scenario...
Sessions diverts anti-terrorism funds and resources to stamping on the states, and we get 9/11 2 - Electric Boogaloo because nobody was watching shit.

Could happen. I mean, who knows. A big unknown is what Trump will and will not micromanage. Apparently, he has two management methods., He is either super-invested in every detail of something, or he is like, "Fuck it...you do it." If he simply doesn't care what Sessions does to legal weed states, then Sessions would become a serious problem.

Honestly, I wouldn't worry about it. The memeposters are gonna get tired of Trump eventually and move onto Putin as their lord and savior. No way he's gonna live up to the God Emperor persona they built up in their minds for the next four years. I mean, did you see the bags under his eyes at the inauguration? I suspect we gonna be seeing him grow a lot of grey hairs peeking out from that rug of his.

I expect to see a lot of tinfoil about our Trump being a fake one replaced by reptilians or something because liberals while the real Trump is secretly building up his elite army to MAGA underground. I'd say let them enjoy their reality debunking while the rest of the world moves on and figure out a way out of this mess.

Look, I live in MA. Lynch is a known careerist, who would flip-flop on issues just to get votes. He was also against legalized weed in MA and is part of a group that wants to undo the will of the people on that. That ALONE makes me willing to listen to Wu on this issue.

Basically there doesn't seem to be any way to stop the DPRK from achieving deliverable nuclear weapons. No one likes them; they are a diplomatic pain in everyone's asses, run Nazi-style death-camps and produce nothing of value. Thus it is obvious to the regime that the only way it can keep this up in the long term is with a deterrent. Just having a nuke you can't deliver is enough to deter invasion (because you could set it off in the middle of the invading army). If you can put one (or more) on a missile then American carrier-groups and Chinese tank battalions et al, change from threats to convenient targets. The nuke is the great equalizer since, in modern warfare at least, it is much easier to destroy than to defend.

This is a problem because the Kim dynasty is plausibly crazy enough to use them (with honorable mentions to Pakistan and Israel). Similarly it may well embolden others to change the global power-balance in the same way. Most industrialized countries could easily build nukes but have chosen not to. As technology globalizes more and more countries will find they have the capability to build them. If the Ukraine had kept it's nukes they would still have Crimea. If Osirak had been rebuilt Saddam may well be growing old in Baghdad. The Japanese could go nuclear in a long weekend. Each time someone does the risk of nuclear war increases. It also severely weakens the hand of existing global powers. Consider the fact that Fatty Kim III (as the Chinese call him) is happily building on even as the rest of the world helplessly begs him to stop. Also, the only real defense against a nuke is another nuke. If Iran gets a nuke Saudi will want one too ect.

So where do you guys think this will end up leading?

You're entirely wrong. But you would be correct if I were anyone other than myself.
You think I subscribe to the news. I don't. I just look into hundreds and hundreds of different news sources from all throughout the news sphere, from liberal to conservative and then some, and I piece everything together. Every news outlet lies and deceives you, but when you look at all of them, the lies become obvious, and the little nuggets of truth slip through.

My opponent was denying this truth out-right, so I tried to show him a little nugget, but I guess nobody could see it as easily as I can, but then again if I really wanted people to see as easily as I can then I'd have to link a fucking ass-ton of sources, and that'd take a lot of my time.

So Obama decided to expel 35 Russian diplomats from the USA under the mere accusation that Russia tampered (mysteriously) with the 2016 election.

And then Putin, being the mature world leader he is, is just like, 'I'm not going to retaliate. The American diplomats can stay in Russia.'

Good on him to keep a level head and act mature even whilst dealing with Barack Obama. I mean, Obama can only get away with so much drama and bullshit, and I'm glad that Putin wasn't baited by Obama's ridiculousness.

What do you guys think of our current standing (the USA) with Russia? What do you want to see in the future of our relationship-to-be with Russia once Trump is in office?

Maybe a Trump presidency isn't such a bad thing because he will expose conservatism for what it is. He may seriously fuck shit up but we can always rebuild & when we do we will come back even stronger.

No one learned anything from the catastrophic failures of Dubya.
Conservatives won't ever understand that they're wrong because they have lower intelligence to begin with.

Conservatives are retarded, for sure, but they're just as retarded as neoliberals. Mainly because neoliberal economic policies are championed by both republicans and democrats.

I know this is a touchy subject.

But does anyone know who started this? I'm open to /tinfoil/ interpretations.

I go to a liberal arts college (yea, I know) and I'm beginning to notice that a lot of people all regurgitate the same shit, have the same mentality and just display no real independent thought in general.

I've noticed this herd mentality with the 'redpill crowd' too. They just sound and act like clones.

People treat this as normal, but I find it deeply worrying.

And I sincerely believe that this phenomenon happened through manipulation. I just want to know who to blame for it. You can blame media outlets but that's too easy, it has to be coming from someone who directly gains from it.

Basically what I'm asking in this rambling post is:
Has anyone pinpointed the source of this shit? Because it's coming from some where. I refuse to believe this was conceived naturally.

Fascism and social liberalism have been around decades. Difficult economic situations tend to bring about periods of political entrenchment. Political illiterates when the economy is good but all the sudden turn into policy experts when shit starts getting a little rough. As far as fascism, reactionaries just naturally gravitate towards it in these situations. Modern SJW culture is just a byproduct of colleges bombarding kids with a continuous stream of identity politics. These beliefs always existed they've just acquired new language to express those ideas.

Basically though when push comes to shove even the most hesitant will fall either left or right. And given the current political climate it's becoming harder to maintain neutrality.

>When someone interprets as derogatory almost anything that is said about him (or about groups with whom he identifies) we conclude that he has inferiority feelings or low self-esteem. This tendency is pronounced among minority rights advocates, whether or not they belong to the minority groups whose rights they defend. They are hypersensitive about the words used to designate minorities. ... Those who are most sensitive about "politically incorrect" terminology are not the average black ghetto-dweller, Asian immigrant, abused woman or disabled person, but a minority of activists, many of whom do not even belong to any "oppressed" group but come from privileged strata of society. Political correctness has its stronghold among university professors, who have secure employment with comfortable salaries, and the majority of whom are heterosexual, white males from middle-class families.

When the fucking Unabomber's predictions start to come true that's when I worry.

>The moral code of our society is so demanding that no one can think, feel and act in a completely moral way. ... Some people are so highly socialized that the attempt to think, feel and act morally imposes a severe burden on them. In order to avoid feelings of guilt, they continually have to deceive themselves about their own motives and find moral explanations for feelings and actions that in reality have a non-moral origin. We use the term "oversocialized" to describe such people.

I bet the idea of Social Media scares the fuck out of him now.

He's recently authored a new book. It's on my list but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I would imagine he talks about the new developments in tech since he's been incarcerated though.

OK...so I went over to Circlejerk just to see how bad /The_Donald/ was, and they are in full retard mode. I say that definitively, because 1/2 the posts are about Project Veritas and one recent one is STILL screaming about "OMG! HILLARY AND COMET PIZZA!" Yes, they are still going on about "Pizzagate," even though it is literally the most ridiculous story to come out of The Future and Circlejerk since that one titled, "I swear guys, my fedora got me laid!"

I started to think about political loyalties, etc. Mine own have changed recently with me writing off the Democratic Party as mostly populated by nothing but careerists who will change positions just to get elected. Ones who don't even try to win elections outside their safe seats.

Now, how about the other side?

Trump will be president. He has made a LOT of very BIGLY promises.

What could he do to lose your support? If you are a Trump voter, what are some things he could do or say that would change your mind about him? Is there anything?

This is a legitimate question. What would it take for you to not support Trump?*

*And no, the other option isn't Hillary.... So no more talking about her.

Mnuchin failed to disclose $95 million in real estate holdings and leadership of Cayman Islands corporation
>Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary pick of President-elect Donald Trump, initially failed to disclose $95 million in real estate holdings to the Senate Finance Committee. Mnuchin, a wealthy Wall Street executive, also failed to disclose his position as director of a corporation in the Cayman Islands, a well-known offshore tax haven, according to a memo from the Senate Finance Committee's Democratic staff.

>The undisclosed information, which also included about $907,000 worth of artwork held by his children, was not on the committee questionnaire Mnuchin submitted on Dec. 19. After questions from committee staff, Mnuchin included the information on revised questionnaires he submitted this month.

>At his confirmation hearing before the committee Thursday, Mnuchin said the oversight was unintentional. "I think as you all can appreciate, filing out these government forms is quite complicated," Mnuchin said. He said the omissions were caused by trying to get the questionnaire to the committee early and advice from his attorney that the information did not need to be disclosed.

>Among the real estate assets are homes in Los Angeles and Southampton, N.Y., and $15 million in holdings in Mexico. Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said "it doesn't take a rocket scientist" to understand the meaning of the questionnaire's language to list all of the positions he held.

>Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) accused Mnuchin of trying "to hide his holdings in the Cayman Islands." Mnuchin said the preliminary questionnaire listed his interest in the Cayman Islands corporation, Dune Capital International, but omitted his role as a director. "I listed the entity," Mnuchin said. "So the fact that I didn’t list I was a director wasn’t intended to hide anything."

Personally I have a hard time taking Mr. Trump seriously. I know he is going to be POTUS and stuff but respect is earned not given. I'm not getting this from lefty-sites or whatever, it's not even my country. I have watched videos of the man speak. This is not an intelligent man.

It's not that he is not intelligent, or rather in a haphazard kinf of way he does know what he is doing, or at least knows what he is 'trying' to accomplish, often adjusting moment to moment. Which makes him sound stupid as dirt.

He's also mostly informed by media, often FOX NEWS and Breitbart.

He's also has a reputation for doing whatever the last person he spoke with tells him to do.

He's intellectually lazy, which may equate to stupid.

Yea, seems he has no personal though processes. He is trying to accomplish what he 'advisors' choose for thim to pursue. Which translates to he really cannot keep on task even with advisors. He has made it clear that he will get details from 'his' advisors, that he need not read, review daily security and other basic
briefings. He is not there, he just as well resign, or call himself non-president.
