So apparently Trump wasn't getting what he wanted earlier re:This retarded Wall so he literally got up, said "Bye Bye!" and left without saying anything else.

Also from the meeting

Schumer or Pelosi (don't remember which) "you’re using workers, the disabled, and airport security as leverage. Why can’t you just open the government and stop hurting the workers you ?"
Trump: "No, Because then you won’t give me what I want, its what I want I'm president. I need what I want"

I'm not trying to play American electoral politics but this is just so fucking retarded. I need to escape from this fucking country but I don't have the means or money to ever leave.

Fall of Empires: London, Washington & Paris on brink of collapse
Despite the thrashing around of the NATO disinformation apparat, the imperial heartland has entered 2019 in a state of complete chaos.Washington, London, and Paris – the three capitals of the Empire – are today effectively ungoverned, shutdown, tottering on the brink of collapse or under siege by their own people.Their self-chosen Nemeses – Moscow and Beijing – meanwhile toast the New Year in a state of considerable optimism and self-confidence. These are the facts, this is the news.We should start at the top of the Empire. The United States government has closed down amid stasis and a barrage of inter-governmental howitzers.The defense secretary, 'Mad Dog' Mattis, has resigned as have other uniformed subalterns angry at the president's re-found determination to withdraw from costly and losing foreign wars. The actual "mad dog" – John Bolton – openly defies President Trump over Syria, Mueller closes in, and the new Democratic majority in the House gears up to "impeach the mother***er."

Is the Historical Subject Returning, Wearing a Yellow Vest?
f someone were to ask me the meaning of politics, I would say that it is concerned with the contestation of power; that it is agonistic, even antagonistic. And that it has to be, because what it contests is the balance of power wielded by different class interests. As Marx recognised, the underlying purpose of the social, political, economic and even legal institutions of capitalist society is to preserve the monopoly of power enjoyed by the capital-owning class. And, consequently, any attempt to challenge that monopoly, in whatever sphere, is going to be countered, as the yellow-vested protesters are currently experiencing on the streets of Paris.

I can admit I was wrong about "muh Russia", it's irritating to think about, but I have to say

If all of this isn't bullshit and there actually is a case to be made some portion of the Russian Government, of all the presidential candidates of the Republican aisle to pass a successful legislative agenda to aid them… The idea they picked Trump just because he was more interested and connected with the oligarchs than the other candidates is hilariously stupid for them to do, near unbelievable. But I guess sometimes truth can be stranger than fiction.

If they actually pulled this I dramatically over estimated the Russian governments ability to strategize. Why the fuck would you ever touch Trump's retarded fucking family and his campaign held together with glue and duck tape, only staying together because of everyone's loathing of Clinton? Like as soon as he won they knew it would fall apart, wouldn't they?

For everyone saying "maybe they wanted it to fall apart and cause the US to sanction them! OOOO" No stop stop stop, if any of these allegations turn out to be true and all of us might have taken it for granted, this is probably one of the dumbest things Russia has done in years regardless of intent

Now I'm saying "IF" it turns out to be true. That would just fucking retarded decision making on their part. I mean who would come up with the idea "duhhhh wha about' that Trump bloke' he seems awful trust worthy to help! I know this other guy named Paul!"

Who the fuck signed off on such an idea? Who would ever look at this shit show and say "These guys are our best bet"

I took that into consideration but whatever that plan involved if this is true, completely fucking back fired for them. If your plan involves sacrafices even more of your international standing and an investigation, possibly damaging internal sources within the United States

Why? Like even if you wanted to end US hegemony this is such an ass backwards way of going about it that falls apart in the slightest bit of scrutiny. I don't even think Putin did this, I think its possible someone else with agency might have done this because this seems like amateur hour shit

Xavier Walker
Xavier Walker

The US just doesn't have any intention of fucking off no matter what Russia does so I imagine Putin has thrown his hands up and given people free reign to fuck the place up. There have been lasting rumours of kompromat on Trump and that combined with him not being a politician probably cemented the decision to run with him.
Russia didn't win the election for him though, that's just butthurt Dem talk. All the talk of muh hacked elections has revealed a few shitty facebook ad campaigns and twitter bots. Wouldn't be surprised if they flooded 4chan though.

Xavier Evans
Xavier Evans

I'm not saying it was the whole election winning, I think you might have been right for Putin to throw his hands up

However that probably wasn't a good desicion to make, because this whole thing is a house of cards. Which is what made all of this so unbelievable in the first place, why would Russia even try this at all? It leads me to believe that Putin wasn't responsible because he's not this stupid, some officials might have organized some bird brained idea to bet all their chips on Trump, because this doesn't seem like a particularly well thought out idea.

This has me concerned because the Russian Government not having control of itself to the degree it might have gotten itself tangeled in this scandal doesn't spell a great future for the country. If someone stabbed Putin in the back accidentally by pulling such a dumb, just grimly stupid idea then what else might others have done

I'm just speculating because it just doesn't seem well thought out, and if they slipped into this whole mess and landed on their ass jeopardizing their country….Russia might not be as organized as anyone thinks they may be in subverting American interests, at least in the sense they're capable of having things explode in their face this easily avoidable

In fact putting such a light on themselves already puts Iran in danger of the sociopathic warhawks around Trump like John Bolton who want to send it back into the stone age like they did with Iraq. I hope I'm wrong and they have their shit together, but man if some desk jockeys in the Kremlin decided to do this clearly without supervision then I don't know, more oversight was clearly needed over whoever was involved in this. My greatest fear is they can now point to Iran as "Russia's ally Iran". And to be honest by putting themselves in this situation and having people go and do shit without clear oversight, the Russian government kind of does have themselves to blame for the consequences of at least not looking over what dumb shit the guy down the hall was doing in 2015.

Trump really is the dumb fucking aspie who was the right man in the wrong place and managed to fuck up geopolitics to a dangerous degree.

Genuine question, if I were to ever plan on moving away from the U.S, which countries would anyone recommend?

UK
Nope
Vietnam, Laos, DPRK, Cuba, Venezuela, India, Checkslovakian republic, Belorussia, Kazakhstan, heck even China is better than the UK.

But it might just be practical to just lug all your crap up to the Canadian wilderness with a crap ton of your friends and ignore any of their laws.

there's a shortage because gas used to be transported via pipes. the pipes were shutdown which means it needs to be transported via trucks which is 15 times more expensive. this was also sudden so people weren't ready. it's also retarded.

You need to get off the internet user, from a fellow european. If the past 15 years I spent on the internet have taught me anything, it's that online/IRL are two almost entirely sperate spheres. Most Americans in real life are quite ignorant, but not nearly as retarded as Trump or the ones you meet online.
