Well, considering the biggest fascists in Portland were the ones they labeled “anti-facists”, I’m not even sure where to begin.

So they agree with the Ultra-Orthodox Jews that control the Israeli Cabinet.

They agree with Tens of millions of ultra-right evangelicals here in the US.

They agree with Russia.


Conservatism and the fake sense of superiority of the religion is the issue.

I would prefer the media to report fairly and objectively. But I won’t hold my hand on my ass waiting for it to happen any time soon.

It's all a ruse. Antifa doesn't stand for anti-fascists, it stands for ANarchists, TI something & FAscists. I just haven't figured out what the TI is yet.

Maybe it's TIts. ANarchists, TIts & FAscists Unite!

Their progress in quantum communications is most alarming -

mainly because nobody really knows where they are with it, and it is impossible to intercept and analyze the signals.

Maybe they just launched a nonfunctional satellite to F with us.... but there are reports that they have sent a quantum transmission over 100 miles. That IS sobering

Justice Department says it mistakenly emailed link to white nationalist website

The Justice Department on Thursday said an email sent to immigration court employees this week should not have included a link to a white nationalist website.

The email, which included links to daily stories involving immigration news, included a link to a blog post on VDare, a white nationalist site, Buzzfeed News reported.

The blog post “directly attacks sitting immigration judges with racial and ethnically tinged slurs,” the immigration judges' union complained in a letter to DOJ that was obtained by Buzzfeed. “Publication and dissemination of a white supremacist, anti-Semitic website throughout the EOIR is antithetical to the goals and ideals of the Department of Justice,” the letter said.

In terms of delivery vehicles, Elon Musk is our best hope to keep up without bankrupting the entire Western world.

That’s a bona fide no shitter

We should be paying him double and it would still be a savings

Transgender rugby player playing with 'a smile on my face'
Born Nicholas Gareth Morgan, she played representative rugby for east Wales as a teenager.

Injury ended that initial involvement with the sport but, after a decade wrestling with gender identity and transitioning to female, Kelly is back playing - and loving it.

Having impressed in friendly fixtures for Porth Harlequins Ladies, she now hopes to compete in the Welsh women's leagues from September.

Transgender women participating in female sport is a divisive subject, and one not confined to Welsh rugby.

Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) guidelines - which are "fully committed to the principles of equality" - state Kelly can play providing her blood-measured testosterone levels are within a certain range.

And she has taken a daily dose of the female hormone oestrogen for the past 18 months.

"They don't half make you cry," she says. "My body shape, my size... it's scary the massive difference it makes. I don't think I'll ever get used to hormones."

At nearly 6ft she stands out among her team-mates, and club captain Jessica Minty-Madley recounts a time she folded an opponent "like a deckchair".
We have come full circle now. The media is overjoyed at a dude for brutalizing women. :?

Kinda curious that it's mostly biological men trannies that dominate women's sports but you never hear about someone born a woman who goes on to dominate men's sports. :suspicious:

This guy isn't impressed with Joe Rogan:

Buried deep within the article we see that he isn't too impressed with Sam Harris, either.
