    There you go using labels that make you look ridiculous, again.

    Justin Trudeau is a "part time drama teacher" the same way that Trump is a "reality TV show host" or George W. Bush is a "baseball team owner".

    Hell, literally none of those are accurate. The accusations against Kavanaugh were never shown to be a "hoax", the Mueller investigation found plenty of evidence of collusion (not to mention indictments and guilty pleas), Smollet is a non-factor that had no effect on anything and was in no way a left-wing "thing", and no, Obama was not responsible for Trump's ICE caging children, no matter how much you lie about that.
    Plenty of bullshit unreflectively parroted by the left. You guys only started to hate trump, once he decided to run against a democrat and your media told you to.
    You're projecting. Trump's been a walking joke for decades.

    All of it? Project Veritas is nothing but fake news and uses clever editing to get gullible people like you to believe them.

    .
    You've got to be kidding me. It was obviously a political smear campaign. Even the biggest moron can see this. The story was dropped faster than a burnt pancake by msm instead of pressing further in this "grave injustice".

    the Mueller investigation found plenty of evidence of collusion (not to mention indictments and guilty pleas).
    Nice try but NO ONE was charged with "Trump campaign worked with the Russians to influence the election"

    Smollet is a non-factor that had no effect on anything and was in no way a left-wing "thing".
    Yeah, he just happens to have ties to Kamala Harris, Hillary Clinton, many other democrats and Hollywood elites who are left wing


    and no, Obama was not responsible for Trump's ICE caging children, no matter how much you lie about that.

    I'm sure you've got official statements from Facebook to confirm they were targeted unfairly for being conservative, yes? You wouldn't just be making up horseshit without any evidence at all, would you?

    And? Companies are entitled to political expression and free speech, and that includes managing what stories they choose to encourage. This is not a reasonable complaint.

    You're using appeals to emotion and angry wording because you have zero factual basis to fall back on to actually prove this claim.

    Nice try but NO ONE was charged with "Trump campaign worked with the Russians to influence the election"
    Just a lot of actual crimes that all add up to exactly that conclusion. It may have only been some members of the campaign that did so, on their own initiative, but that they did so is public record and some have already confessed to guilt.

    Yeah, he just happens to have ties to Kamala Harris, Hillary Clinton, many other democrats and Hollywood elites who are left wing
    "Ties" is such a useless word. You're talking about stuff like "two public figures may have met one time".

    This is literally how conspiracy theories work. You make allusions about "ties" that imply, to your twisted perception, some grand conspiracy. It's all in your head. This isn't facts, this is nonsense you're making up.

    Obama had no child separation policy in place. Trump created that. He has lied about this, and tried to claim Obama came up with it, but that's bullshit, it's just bullshit you apparently like the taste of.

    Also I was referencing the fake news blaming trump on the caged children picture.

    Anyway, seperating illegal immigrant children from "parents" makes sense since smugglers and child traffickers often pretend to be their parents:


    https://www.foxnews.com/us/migrant-c...der-agent-says

    MCALLEN, Texas – Border patrol agents say they are alarmed by the growing number of migrants illegally crossing the border with children – who are not their own – to avoid long-term federal custody.

    Deputy Chief Patrol Agent Raul Ortiz said he’s seeing a growing number of migrant children crossing the border with people pretending to be their parents.

    A decades-old settlement, known as the “Flores agreement,” limits the amount of time U.S. officials can detain immigrant children – thus doing the same for their parents, which Ortiz said motivates many of the false relationships.

    The problem became so prevalent that the agency began carefully tracking fraudulent family cases in the Rio Grande Valley, after agents noticed a heightened use of fake documents. In fiscal year 2018, Ortiz reported 600 instances.

    Recently, border patrol agents rescued a 4-month-old Honduran child from a man falsely identifying himself as her father. In an interview with officials, he admitted purchasing the fraudulent document. Agents later discovered it wasn’t the illegal immigrant’s first time using a child to avoid long-term federal custody. In 2013, records revealed he smuggled an 8-year-old child across the border, claiming he was the father. They were released from federal custody because they received a family unit designation.

    Ortiz called cases like this heart-breaking, putting young and vulnerable children at risk.

    “We really are concerned, especially for those tender-age children because quite often they can’t communicate that they’re not with a family member,” he said.

    He said during long and dangerous treks toward the U.S. border, which can span several weeks, agents worry about the kind of abuses these children may face.


    At no point should a child be placed in any harm or danger, and that’s exactly what’s happening,” Ortiz added. “They’re being used as a commodity to circumvent a loophole.”

    On Thursday, officials revealed that in seven of 102 cases involving children under 5 separated from their guardians, the adult was determined not to actually be the parent.

    But the exact circumstances surrounding each case are unclear.

    The Trump administration announced Thursday the reunification of all eligible children under 5 after missing the initial court-ordered deadline earlier in the week.


    This comes after a federal judge sided with the American Civil Liberties Union on Tuesday to speed up the reunification process by, among other things, skipping DNA tests for many children.

    Some of the border patrol agents with the Rio Grande Valley sector expressed some concern over the ruling, saying it could present a risk to security if limitations on DNA tests expand.

    But immigration advocates argue that these children call for special circumstances.

    “The court could not have been clearer that business as usual is not acceptable,” Lee Gelernt of the ACLU said in a statement. “The Trump administration must get these children and parents reunited.”

    Even though personally I do not think that those who serve a sentence should be able to vote, I am perfectly fine if Bernie thinks that they should. A prison sentence supposed to be a punishment in a form of isolation from society. Therefore, if you are jailed, your voting rights should be revoked until you pay your dues. Obviously Bernie thinks that those who are imprisoned should still be counted as a part of society, and there is common sense in that as well.
    Ideally, I would think that voting should be reserved only for those prisoners who still engage in some sort of interaction with the outside world. As a form of a reward or an incentive to change one's status for the better. For example, I see no reason why prisoners who serve as firefighters should not vote. Or those who work to produce certain goods for people of a state (number plates come to mind).
    Obviously, a debate about who should be imprisoned in the first place requires a separate topic. But As a general rule, I think that might work.

    Overall it is bound to be other western countries, on specifics it might differ. However there is a clear pattern of shaping the system into something it was not meant to be nor should be.
    If one look at the complete picture its scary what the trend is and has been for quite a while.

    Project Veritas don't write propaganda hit-pieces, they catch people on video. I can see why you are butthurt that they expose the far-left, but to call it propaganda is ignorant.

    They do rather important work given the overwhelming complicity of the mainstream media with one political party. It's important for journalism to be done outside of this echo-chamber, as unpleasant as it is for SJWs like you.

    Here's a link with a lot of info on their lies, misinformation, failed attempts at planting fake stories, inability to hang up phones after calling "targets" and leaving voicemails with their "secret plans", looking at folks LinkedIn accounts while they're still logged in and more.

    It is a slippery slope, but a justified one, that just needs to be sure to be maintained in check.

    Enemies of the state should not be voting on what the state does.
