>implies that any possible corruption scandal involving the presidential campaign would be a matter internal to the Executive branch to prosecute.
No, the fuck, it isn't. This guy slept in 7th grade /Civ/ics? The separation of powers? Yeah? Only Congress has the authority to impeach the Executive. Is this guy just stupid or is this some kind of mind game (lefty talk show host doesn't make a point of it, shakes hands for this explanation) trying to sell the rest of slept-through-7th-grade America that the Congress isn't resposible to contain the Executive?

Harvey Weinstein isn't a tipping point; he's the point of no return.

I'm astonished. They had an opportunity to undermine the culture and prosperity of half a dozen "allies" by dumping thousands of subhumans on them and they gave it up! Kiked by their own kikes?

I'm sure they're just taking some time to research a more subtle way of doing this.

Israeli Trump supporters felt that if they shipped 16,000 off that in a year they'd have 16 million expecting them to do the same.

In other words, it makes just as much sense as anything else Trump says.

We truly are living in The Stupid Ages.

It's only coordinated in the sense that their all playing the game.

Worst case scenario is Japan gets a little more nuclear radiation(they're used to it by now), everyone nukes nk(china loses a pawn, but keeps it's border proxy exchanging a hostile state for a nuclear wasteland), and then it's back to the status quo.

So all the posting about the German election got deleted. Why? Even as a non-German I still find it useful to know what's going on in other countries and also to see what sort of trends might apply to where I live.

Right now it looks to me as though despite the number of people who loudly dislike Merkel and her party there are still enough who either don't dislike her as much or dislike the other parties more that she'll get first crack at forming a governing coalition.

So, the Trump administration is simply out to rape the United States and it's people in every which way it can and it's going to get away with it because they are too hopelessly divided on every issue to do anything for themselves.

You've made the classic blunder of mistaking derision and scorn for concern. Russia is teetering on the brink of collapse from economic sanctions (due to the miscalculation of the Crimea invasion) coupled with the global drop in oil & gas prices caused by the US flooding the market.

An opposition party has formed despite Putin making it illegal to hold demonstrations without preapproval from the government. Massive rallies are held in open defiance of his laws.

Putin not only cares, he's fucking terrified because he thinks all of this is the result of a massive CIA plot. By failing to accurately gauge the situation he's making tactical blunder after blunder, opening vulnerabilities to the very people he's counting on to carry him through no matter what - Russian citizens.

He can claim everyone who opposes him are Nazis only so many times before people will start to question why he always trots out the exact same bogeyman every time he encounters opposition. He's quickly reaching the tipping point of citizens unwilling to accept his lies (hence the massive demonstrations) and is simply too old, fat, and dull to find a new bogeyman, which leads to his mistakes piling up in a massive tower of failure that will eventually topple and fall, crushing his flabby body under it.

Stalin not only killed more people than Putin, he killed them openly and without fear of reprisal because he held absolute power over the country. Anyone who opposed him was either killed or sent off to gulags. Putin has to kill in secret. He can't risk openly killing anyone who opposes him because he knows this will result in his downfall. This is why he's far weaker than Stalin. He can't do what needs to be done to install himself as permanent dictator for life. Stalin killed millions of Russians to maintain his power. It takes Putin days, weeks, even months to kill just one. Time is a luxury no human can afford, since it catches up with us all in the end... and with old age comes dementia. For someone like Putin dementia is a fatal flaw.

Or a relatively tiny Secret Service propaganda taskforce, drumming up intelligence and prompting exaggerated responses on local media.

Apparently all you know about the secret service is that it has the word "secret" in its name.

The proposal to turn the Internet into cable television:
http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2017/db1122/DOC-347927A1.pdf

This will be "considered" at the FCC's monthly meeting on December 14th.

It's not what I thought it was. I thought it would be about putting control of the internet into corporate hands, raising the cost of hosting and streaming services nationwide, and forcing the people to pay for access to individual web sites like cable TV channels. It does those things, but its higher priority is undoing things that were done during the previous administration. This is yet another attempt by the current administration to make the American people and the world forget there was ever a black president by erasing any trace of a political legacy that could be attributed to his leadership (even though the president has no authority to direct the FCC). Destroying the internet as we know it will be a side effect.

Specifically, the proposal reverses this order:
https://apps.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-15-24A1.pdf

Highlights:

Key to the proposal is defining broadband Internet access as a luxury, not a utility. Specifically, to reclassify broadband ISPs as Title I "information services", reversing their 2015 reclassification as Title II "telecommunications services" and bringing us back to 2014's Verizon Communications Inc. v. FCC, in which it was determined that the FCC relinquished the authority to regulate broadband ISPs blocking or throttling any information being transmitted through their networks by distinguishing them from "common carriers" as was confirmed in 2004's NCTA v. Brand X Internet Services.

The proposal repeats certain words and phrases to an almost hypnotic effect, among them "restore internet freedom" (what it purports to do) and "heavy-handed, utility-style regulation" (in reference to the 2015 order) and "light touch" (to describe it's strategy of regulation-free regulation that will magically prevent the telecom conglomerates from holding the internet for ransom).

What's real fun is that under Title I and without common carrier protections, they are liable for all traffic carried over their network.

If you commit a crime using their network, under Title I they're considered to be an accomplice to the crime. This is what common carrier prevented.

But because Verizon's execs want ever-greater forms of compensation, they sued common carrier out of the way, which lead to them being classified as Title II.

Now they're back to Title I without common carrier protections. Which means they're back to being liable for acts committed by customers using their network.

Almost every sketchy business that only accepts bitcoin as payment? ISPs are now liable for them. The act of receiving and transmitting information about the blockchain transaction? Liable.

They wanted it, they got it. And I hope they choke on it.

They'd better beef up their legal departments, since they're accomplices on federal, state, and local levels.

Getting dragged into court in every municipality in the country tends to be a bit of a drain.

But I'm sure that the GOP, being such vocal supporters of state rights, would certainly never stand in their way.
