The minute-long video opens with two short sentences, as foreboding music plays in the background.

“WE WON THE BATTLE,” it says.


It then cuts to a series of clips showing some of President's Trump's most vocal critics:

Filmmaker Michael Moore: “We elected a fascist.”

>The offensively named FOPA itself was introduced to congress by Republicans and signed enthusiastically by Reagan.
I thought the FOPA was mostly good stuff with the exception of Hughes?
>> No. 115615 ID: 791f24
Yeah, given the name you'd think that it was wonderful, but it was a mixed bag at best. Mainly its effect seems to have been adding unnecessary bulk to the massive tomes of legal knowledge one needs to memorize & obey to be allowed to own a gun without risking incarceration & bankruptcy.
As always the government isn't infringing upon your rights, its protecting them.
>> No. 115616 ID: d0041a
FOPA was the last time, federally outside of supreme court rulings, that your gun rights have been enhanced by the legislative branch. You can now freely travel through any state with your guns w/o having to ship them.
If you want to blame Hughes on anything - blame it on no line item veto, or the fact that the senate should have kicked it back, blame it on Charlie Rangel, blame it on a mere vocal yay or nay vote - ie the loudest won

Safe transport and shipping is the most important thing FOPA did. Without FOPA the entire northeast states cut off from NY - ie Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, would be cut off from ground transportation, commercial and personal, of high cap magazines and banned feature rifles.

FOPA is the less shit version of GCA, which is shittier shit. They're both shit. The safe passage, for example, is a lot more than just putting it in the trunk. Any state you happens to be passing through which wanted to bust you for possession can still do so if they want to. The registry ban coexists with an ever growing number of registries.

>bad faith lies
I have no idea what are you saying, but this is typical right-wing move to strengthen central government power. Without actually declining any basic human rights and faith in their "democracy", the eurocrats are acting directly to prevent their power slipping out of their hands.

>Euroskeptics aren't "right wing"
I did not generalize that, my braindamaged friend, it's just a lot of them are embracing the nationalism in it's most racist (i.e. inherently stupid) form.

The EU and America both have a huge chunk of their economies built on exploiting 3rd world countries, and the consequences of that aren't going to be solved by scepticism movements. Weither EU wins, or their opponents win, the Europe will be forced to take a stronger actions towards these nations and their people. The resources are being robbed endlessly from weaker countries, the immigrants are introduced to developed economies to take lowest positions in the society. Their frustration will be used by both parties, until they will be turned scapegoats by everybody, and there will be no justice left for anybody.

Surprisingly, it is not a new development in EU and it's allies at all, EU has been promoting fascist values by itself for a long time already - if you know how it has been treating its minorities. Do you know how many people were murdered by typical fascists in the European "years of peace"? Do you have any idea what regimes EU supports on it's borders? And after that they've got what, a Peace Nobel Prize?

By all means, I could agree with you - there's no "left vs right" in the "developed world" at any given moment. It is only "right right" vs "wrong right", where the politics are bickering over method to enslave everybody around them.

Republicans in Arizona want to let the police arrest you and steal your property if they think a peaceful protest "might" become violent.

>Rioting is illegal, even in Arizona, but some Republican senators there want to make it extra super illegal. And critics fear they're going to make it so illegal that it will result in people being charged with criminal conspiracy or racketeering (and risk having their property seized) just by participating in a protest where others might engage in violence.

>Democratic senators expressed such worries in a piece posted at Arizona Capital Times. They fear that if SB 1142 is made law, it will be used to find new ways to crack down on peaceful protesters by creating pretenses to connect them to troublemakers. The Republicans defending the law are turning to the conspiracy that all the violence is planned and paid for by outsiders as justification:

>By including rioting in racketeering laws, it actually permits police to arrest those who are planning events. And [Republican Sen. John] Kavanagh, a former police officer, said if there are organized groups, "I should certainly hope that our law enforcement people have some undercover people there.''

>"Wouldn't you rather stop a riot before it starts?'' Kavanagh asked colleagues during debate. "Do you really want to wait until people are injuring each other, throwing Molotov cocktails, picking up barricades and smashing them through businesses in downtown Phoenix?''

>Sen. Sylvia Allen, R-Snowflake, said the new criminal laws are necessary.

>"I have been heartsick with what's been going on in our country, what young people are being encouraged to do,'' she said.

Have you ever been so mad at a flamboyant racemixing gay British Jew that you burned down part of your university, trashed cars, and possibly murdered people in the street?

If you have, you might live in California.

The tl;dr is Milo Yiannopolis of Breitbart Tech was supposed to give his last speaking appearance at Berkley last night. "Anti-fascist" protestors turned up and started a massive riot.

>Started fires
>Looted a Starbucks
>Smashed windows and ATM machines
>Beat people with flagpoles, clubs, and baseball bats

One guy in a vehicle got attacked and had his windows smashed, so he floored it and ran over several rioters. The mob chased after him, lost him, and dragged a guy out of a different, but similar looking car and beat him unconcious. Then the "anti-fascists" got on the scene and beat his unconcious body with clubs and a ball bat. Nobody knows if the guy is alive or dead. Pic related.

Meanwhile pundits are egging this shit on and declaring war against anyone to the Right of Mao. Since they made the cops cancel Milo's speech, they consider this a victory and are pushing to emulate it.

>his word that when he said "boy" he was using the term euphemistically to refer to a young man in a daddy/son gay relationship

I've listened to it and... I don't think that's really what he's doing here. He's done that BEFORE, but here he was pretty obviously talking about underage boys and adult men. I agree that what he said isn't as fucked up as what people are making out, but it's still fucked up to say that shit is okay. However he's said much more fucked up shit and that... got him a book deal. It's kind of sad that THIS is where his fellow Brietbart employees drew the line--jokes about his own trauma--and not the actual terrible shit he says on purpose.

I understand that the dynamic between men and much younger guys is complicated, especially in eras when homosexuality had to be much deeper underground. Hell it can be hard to find a date now if you don't live in a major city; that's why sites like Grindr matter so much and why lesbians keep trying to get Her off the ground. It's literally impossible to figure out who is actually up for things when gay bars either don't exist or are no longer popular. But there's a big difference between "sometimes older guys date younger guys" and "it's fine for an adult man to fuck a thirteen year old."

You might find this take on it interesting.

>> No. 115553 ID: a569d7
In other words, that annoying person in your class keeps wearing rainbow everything because it's really hard to find a date unless you're really obvious. If you don't lisp or get a buzz cut you pretty much have to wear something.

CPAC also kicked out Richard Spencer (who had not been invited but bought a ticket) because "his views are repugnant and have absolutely nothing to do with what goes on here."

WASHINGTON — Working from an office suite behind a Burger King in southern Virginia, operatives used a web of shadowy cigarette sales to funnel tens of millions of dollars into a secret bank account.

Hey so remember how the Serbian intelligence agency foiling a terrorist attack in Montenegro and the subsequent find of a cache of weapons outside the Serbian prime minister's house before they deported a bunch of Russian spies and one of Putin's toadies had to fly to Serbia and apologize was just fake Serbian news according to 9723b1?

>A Montenegrin special prosecutor says “Russian state bodies” were linked to a thwarted assassination plot to kill the Balkan nation’s prime minister and derail its accession to NATO.

>The official investigating the election-day plot made the public accusation a day after The Sunday Telegraph reported allegations from senior Whitehall figures that Russia had backed the conspiracy.

>The Kremlin immediately dismissed claims it conspired to use Serbian nationalists to overthrow the Montenegrin government as “absurd” and unsubstantiated.

>Prosecutor Milivoje Katnic told local television: “So far, we have had evidence that Russian nationalist structures were behind [the plot], but now also that Russian state bodies were involved at a certain level.”

>He said: “The organs of the Russian state must investigate which bodies are involved and open a criminal trial over these acts.”

>The prosecutor alleged the conspiracy – which would have seen a group disguised as police officers attack parliament on Oct. 16 and kill Milo Djukanovic – had been led by a member of Russian military intelligence.

It happened back in October and I think we had a thread about it. tl;dr is that the Serbians caught wind of a plot by some Serbian nationalists and Russian backers to try and coup the Montenegrin government, tipped off their neighbors and then deported some Russian intelligence agents involved with it.
>Commenting as to why Serbia's security forces went public with the information about the attempted coup, Serbian Prime Minister Alexander Vucic said: "Those who suppose Serbia would be involved in any kind of criminal activity are deeply mistaken."

Just a few days later, a security sweep found a cache of weapons near the prime minister's home in a position that would be good for a assassination.

And of course, this was all denied as being lies, racism against Russia, etc. The usual dindu flailing from the 50 cent army whenever Russia gets caught causing trouble.

IN A.D. 2017

>breithart not covering this story for some mysterious reason, probably because they haven't read about it on CNN yet

Russian ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin died Monday in New York, Russian officials said. His death was also announced inside the UN Trusteeship Council Chamber.

He died one day before his 65th birthday.

Churkin was at the Russian embassy on East 67th Street on Monday when he experienced a “cardiac condition,” The New York Post reported. He was rushed to New York Presbyterian Hospital at around 9:30 a.m. unconscious and in need of CPR.

Churkin had been Russia's envoy at the United Nations since 2006 and was considered Moscow's great champion at the U.N. He had a reputation for an acute wit and sharp repartee, especially with his American and Western counterparts. He was currently the longest-serving member of the Security Council, the U.N.'s most powerful body.

Among many other issues, he had recently made Russia's views heard on the conflict in close ally Syria, sparring with diplomats from the U.S. and other Western countries over whether to impose sanctions or take action to end the conflict in Syria.

Trump signs order pulling U.S. from TPP: President Trump signed an executive order on Monday announcing his plan to withdraw the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal.

The order fulfills Trump’s campaign promise to abandon the Pacific Rim trade pact early in his administration.

“We've been talking about this for a long time,” Trump said after signing the order in the Oval Office, adding that leaving the 12-nation pact is a “great thing for the American worker.” http://bit.ly/2kaw6bN.

White House: Trump has left his businesses: The White House said Monday that President Trump has left his business empire, but the documentation has not been made public.

"He has resigned from the company, as he said he would, before he took office," press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters at his first official press briefing.

“Don and Eric are fully in charge of the company," he added, referring to the president's two adult sons.

>As part of intelligence operations being conducted against the United States for the last seven months, at least one Western European ally intercepted a series of communications before the inauguration between advisers associated with President Donald Trump and Russian government officials, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation.

>The sources said the interceptions include at least one contact between former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and a Russian official based in the United States. It could not be confirmed whether this involved the telephone call with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that has led to Flynn’s resignation, or additional communications. The sources said the intercepted communications are not just limited to telephone calls: The foreign agency is also gathering electronic and human source information on Trump’s overseas business partners, at least some of whom the intelligence services now consider to be agents of their respective governments. These operations are being conducted out of concerns that Russia is seeking to manipulate its relationships with Trump administration officials as part of a long-term plan to destabilize the NATO alliance.

Turns out Trump's lawyer has a problem with lying.

>President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, was at the center of a bombshell New York Times report published Sunday that said he hand-delivered a "peace plan for Russia and Ukraine" to former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn before Flynn was asked to resign.

>The plan — which The Times said was pushed by Cohen, businessman Felix Sater, and Ukrainian lawmaker Andrii Artemenko — involved lifting sanctions on Russia in return for Moscow withdrawing its support for pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine, according to the report. It would also allow Russia to maintain control over Crimea, which it annexed in 2014.

>Hours after the Times story was published, however, Cohen told The Washington Post that he hadn't delivered the peace plan to Flynn nor discussed it with anyone in the White House.

>In an interview with The Post, Cohen corroborated The Times' reporting that he had met with Sater and Artemenko in a hotel lobby on Park Avenue in Manhattan in late January to discuss the proposal. He said that the meeting lasted less than 15 minutes and that he left with the plan in hand.

>However, he "emphatically" denied "discussing this topic or delivering any documents to the White House and/or General Flynn," adding that he told Artemenko that he could "send the proposal to Flynn by writing him at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.," The Post reported.

>Cohen shifted his story again on Monday, telling Business Insider in a series of text messages that he denies "even knowing what the plan is." But he said in a later message that he met with Artemenko in New York for "under 10 minutes" to discuss a proposal that Artemenko said "was acknowledged by Russian authorities that would create world peace."
