clkeagle: inglixthemad: Actually it's horseshiat to say China wants Biden in office. While he'd stabilize trade, right now China is running rampant expanding their sphere of influence because Predisent Snowflake Trumplethinskin isn't a stable ally. In the long run that's going to pay far more dividends than table trade, which Xi and the rest of Communist party could t have dreamed of being reality.

Xi is between a rock and a hard place. Four more years of Trump would allow China's expansion to continue unchecked, but could ultimately bankrupt them. Biden would have a major stabilizing effect on the US economy and global markets, which get consumer funds pouring back into China. But Biden's policies will restrict their expansionism.

Ultimately I think Xi would prefer Biden because business interests will outweigh other goals.


Agree, for the most part. The destruction of American foreign policy allows China to run roughshod over the region and a Trump win means they'll likely claw back Taiwan and consolidate HK. But you're right that there's some economic unbalance in the country and the stable build-and-sell model for consumer economies worked for them very well.

FTF Pres. Nobody: "Well, I don't care what anybody says," Trump said.

Here's what I say:
* Trump surrendered Kurdish territory in Syria to Russian troops
* Trump allowed Wagner mercenaries, funded by Russia, to take control from the recognized government of all of the Libyan oil fields
* Several western nations have protested Russian interference in the Belarusian elections.  Not the U.S.

Enough bullshiat: just exactly what have you done, Mr. Tough Guy?

Don't forget severely diminishing the USAs soft power in Europe and the Middle East while attacking valuable allies like Germany and trying to blackmail the Ukraine.

IF Russia didn't want Trump, they could burn him, right now, in a hundred ways, for example:

1) Putin could release transcripts of all the calls Trump and Putin have had over the years.  Those transcripts could be doctored however they wish.

2) Putin could admit that he put bounties on American troops and that Trump knew about the bounties on American soldiers, and didn't care.

3) Putin could claim that Trump sent ventilators and PPE to Russia as part of a quid quo pro for help in the election.

4) Putin could just admit that Trump is his guy.

All these things he could do, if he really hated Trump, and he hasn't done any of them and that's because he is protecting his useful idiot in the White House.

I will drag my nakedness over a bed of molten metal to help get this motherfuker out of office. If I did anything more than that, I'd be arrested. I hate him. I've never felt hate until he came along.


I've not felt this kind of hate before, either. I thought I hated W Bush, but it turns out I was just seriously pissed off at him. W, for all of his glaring faults and damage caused, was not a purely evil person. Naive, inarticulate? You bet. But not evil.

But this guy I truly hate. I'm looking back at my life and thinking of people I didn't like. Every life has conflict. I bet that even monks secretly harbor a dislike here and there. There all sitting down to dinner and thinking (not saying), "Get a load of this motherf*cker." But this is different.

Hate is a very irresponsible and toxic thing. But I'm consumed by it right now. I pose no threat to the president but can't help but imagine the satisfaction of landing a punch. The only thing I can do is vote, but my state is assuredly going for Trump. It's frustrating.

I hope I worded this in a way that doesn't result in the Secret Service showing up at my d....CARRIER LOST

Shaggy_C: clkeagle: But Biden's policies will restrict their expansionism.

Mmm...How, exactly?

The Democrats have apparently repositioned themselves as the party of unfettered free trade. A few years ago, when I would refuse to buy things because they were 'made in China' it was like a badge of respect. "This guy supports American workers!" Now it's associated with Trumperism, so I keep my anti-China, anti-Child Labour thoughts to myself.

A Biden presidency would likely involve a stupid "Reset" button gag with China just like the Obama admin did with Russia. We are friends! Look how friendly we are! How did that work out for us?


I like Biden for his ability to hit that reset button without being an obsequious partner with China.

Biden seems like he supports the Pacific fleet. He would oppose Manilla and Beijing, and prop up Canberra and Wellington. Biden is, unfortunately, clueless about Indigenous Islanders and their legit beefs against American territory status. But unlike Trump who has been destroying the territorial islands, Biden would repair them and prop their economies for supply chain and the naval infrastructure. That will passively entrench the racist governments in the territories, by restoring Washington's normal ignorance of the locals...but it will be lightyears better than Trump's malevolence. And Biden might actually start to decolonize through self-government of sections of the islands, as per UN conventions.

As for trade in particular, Biden is handcuffed by the shiatshow Mitch McConnell made of the TPP. However, Covid has pretty much wrecked the Pacific paradigm shift that the TPP was supposed to create.  The USA can recover from Covid faster than any nation, if it chooses to! And, with Pacific assets and allies, render China's TP dominance too slow and too late to seize world hegemon status.

It's not in the Dem election platform, but I think that is in the Dem playbook as their Pacific policy in general. Am I admit my dream scenario is weak to obvious upsets like, for instance, Republican governors on Guam and American Samoa just shiatting on their own front yards.

I find it funny that the folks here can still hold onto such a thoroughly debunked line of shait as the Putin controls Trump story.

2020-08-08 9:35:42 PM  
FTFA:Listen, nobody is tougher on Russian than me, nobody. When I met Putin, everybody was so afraid, because nobody had handled Putin tough before. You think Obama handled Putin? No. But I handled Putin enormously, people were so impressed. Afterwards, I had people calling me, people who had followed Russia for years, calling me and telling me how impressed they were by how enormously I handled Putin. When he came here, he had a whole list of demands, but I was tough, so tough. I gave him the roughest handjob of his entire life, like the kind you get from a 14-year-old in Palm Beach who's never given a handjob before, you know? And I handled him immensely, and when he came on my face he called me by my own name, which was, I think, a real win for the American people, and one they said I'd never be able to accomplish. So I'm the last guy Putin wants to see as President, believe me.

Well, I'm convinced.

He is right though, Putin is through with him. Russia is asshole buddies with China now and China hates us. Putin got all he needed from Trump.


Of all his "No one" qualifiers(knows more about various subjects, accomplished as much, etc) there's two that really jump out . This one and the "no one has helped the black community more, except maybe Abe Lincoln". Even when he's challenged on these, like the Axios interview or yesterday, he keeps to the lie. Total delusion or a big F-You to everyone? Why not both?

Geeze, you know, it's easy to see why you guys are here.  You generalize everyone FOREVER simply to deflect from thinking about it all together, and so, after many years of farked up shiat without thinking about the consequences, there's this dude farking up all the shiat without thinking about consequences.

I tend to be annoyed at how complicit many people clearly have been in the name of happiness and success.

But you can't buy respect, so I say good day.

It means Russia plans to put an end to America.  They plan for Trump to be last.

This Norman Vincent Peale shiat is starting to make sense now. If Putin wants Turnip to win, he didn't win on his own, and that makes Turnip less than perfect. And Turnip can't wrap his head around that.

He doesn't care if it's true or not, only if it answers the question is Turnip the best? He has to be the best, because anyone better than him might make a better real estate deal. So he's the best, and all of his deals were the best deal he could get. Even if it isn't true.

And then he has to defend himself. He's been tough on Russia. But he can't be compared to anyone else, so he's the toughest on Russia.

I don't understand yet what he thinks he did for Black folk, to start with something he could turn in to he's done more than Lincoln, so I have to assume he hasn't just sent people out killing folks for being Black, and that's scary.

Not fake news, discredited news.

Your see, once upon a time, there was a investigation that resulted in something called the Muller report.  And if you ever take the time to read it, instead of getting your news from a echo chamber, you would find that there is no evidence to show that the Russians had any meaningful contact with the Trump team and you would also find that there is little to no evidence of any meaningful aid from Russia to the sole benefit of Trump.

But, I don't expect you to take the time to read it for yourself.  Just keep doing what you are doing.  I wouldn't expect anything of the sort from anyone at Fark.  Just keep reading your religious texts from Talking Point Memo and keep lionizing Rachael Maddow.
