    Looks like the guy saying "white power" is being sarcastic, and quite frankly his sarcasm is warranted, given the behavior of the anti-Trumpers. Lots of nasty old retirees in Florida, apparently.

    No. Men and women who have "been there done that," from war to piece, business and raising families. They know when to be angry and what to be angry at, and to call out evil. Every generation of the accomplished that make it to that age has a claim to being "the greatest." And when they say Trump sucks, that's worth paying attention to.

    They're not just saying that Trump sucks, they're calling his supporters stuff like "Nazi fascist pig," etc. The kind of things that sound better coming from Antifa kids. It's embarrassing to hear it come from the elderly who one might hope would have acquired a bit more wisdom in their long lives.

    Be not so quick to judge the elderly. They may be smarter than you; they may be better educated than you; they may be more experienced than you in almost every way, and they sure as hell have been around longer and seen more. Does't mean they're right, but their age also doesn't mean they know less than you.

    Is someone who has had two kids more trustworthy than someone who had one? What if you're child died when she was four, does that still count? Do Vietnam war vets beat Korean war vets? Does Trump beat the old fella who owns a jewelry shop on the corner?

    Sorry, for being cynical. Well, I'm really not that sorry.

    I’m not being an ageists. Did you watch the video? I can’t imagine you condoning their behavior. It’s obviously absurd and counterproductive to yell at a Trump supporter that they’re a nazi fascist pig merely for publicly expressing their support.

    I did, and that seems like quite the leap based on the short interaction we can see in the clip, and especially in light of all the other relevant context here (its no secret that plenty of actual, literal white supremacists are big fans of Donald Trump, or that a very non-negligible portion of his political rhetoric and governing history qualifies pretty uncontroversially/straightforwardly as white identity politics.. and that this was a not-insignificant factor in his election and his continued support from Republican voters)

    And he’s still doing a better job than any grandiloquent, Ivy-league lawyer that has dominated the position until now. That’s the best part: I get to watch Trump reveal the ineffectiveness of establishment politicians, and a better country to boot.NOS4A2
    Just like the stats here show how a great job he has done:

    And as a Canadian, you don't have anything to fear as your government has it far better in control too.

    At least GOP never Trumpers are more vocal, which is in my view is a great sign.

    I do like the US, Wheatley. Yet is being truthful and realistic an act of hostility?

    You could do what many have already said you should do: if you still have this lucrative opportunity, do something productive with it. Invest in R&D, in infrastructure, do something about your ultra-expensive health care system which performs so poorly. List goes on, but I think you know it too...

    Iran issues arrest warrant for Trump, asks Interpol to help

    Iran has issued an arrest warrant and asked Interpol for help in detaining US President Donald Trump and dozens of others it believes carried out the drone strike that killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad.

    Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said on Monday that Trump, along with more than 30 others Iran accuses of involvement in the January 3 attack that killed General Qassem Soleimani, face "murder and terrorism charges", the semi-official ISNA news agency reported.

    Alqasimehr did not identify anyone else sought other than Trump, but stressed Iran would continue to pursue his prosecution even after his presidency ends.

    You are absolutely correct, NOS. The trouble with these leftists is that they all want to disregard the part of the perjury laws that say that if you have a good reason for lying under oath, it is no longer perjury.

    The “other relevant context” could be skewing perception.

    They guy was being taunted with “where’s your white hood?” and the like, just for showing Trump support. I’d have difficulty not responding sarcastically to such childishness, personally.

    The typical ploy of blaming Trump for the incompetence and failures of the states, the worst of which are governed by democrats. The fact is Trump is not allowed to govern the states. He cannot enact health policy in New York, for example.

    It’s the same in Canada. Quebec was harder hit than British Columbia, and have diverging policies, each with their own health officers and laws. So one cannot blame Trudeau for Quebec without praising him for BC.

    And that the whole thing was brought up in March in the NSC, which isn't an intelligence gathering entity, but a policy decision making entity, makes it clear that this was not just speculative intel. As if Trump didn't know it? Nonsense.

    I have said earlier and I will say again that the Trump Presidency is the greatest intelligence win in history ever achieved by anybody. And those denying it now will deny, forget it and move on just like those who believed that Saddam Hussein conspired with Al Qaeda and then that President Bush just got bad intel. But that of course is little compared to Trump. But I'm an optimist: Trump will be the worst President in US history.

    Putin can only hope that indeed he has been successful of dividing the US that facts don't matter anymore. (He is now just paving the road to be the Russian president until 2036, btw)

    And yet, that this person was being sarcastic is not something that is clear from the clip of the brief interaction so that interpretation is apparently just as ideological as the converse.

    True. You did however mention my ideology. What you meant by that is less clear now than it was initially. In case it has any relevance, I too think that Trumps brand of populism enlists an element of racism.

    I noticed a news article this morning that the woman yelling “fucking nazi fascist pig” at Trump supporters was getting major props online. I seriously don’t get it. I imagine it might feel good on some base level to vent frustrations at those you feel deserve it. A tantrum, basically.
