Cold War 2.0



Trump has probably ridden the lolita express at least once

It's a RT article but I'm not even surprised




Who's going to get nationalized first?

If they can get away with it and survive the other major players will begin to do the same thing.


The Senate GOP Accidentally Killed Some of Its Donors’ Favorite Tax Breaks


Hardly. Even the most bellicose and arrogant warhawk knows that the GMD can't defend against major-powers worth of nukes. The GMD will theoretically be able to defend against NK for the next, say, 3 years. It's a major, major waste of spending that doesn't even work half the time.

I'm sure that bill is going to be an unending Pandora's Box for America.


The gift that keeps giving.

This will be interesting. Please keep us updated on this, NA2.0! Pic related from RT's Keiser Report is a huge crypto-fetishist right libertarian so he'll surely cover the evil sotsalists adopting his beloved money form. When he does, please link it in OP/ED.


Get ready for a sexual predator to be elected to the Senate.

I was naive to think that this year, body slamming a reporter was the worst someone could do and still win an election. I was clearly wrong.

Not really anything new is it?

I hope it's those dumb fuck liberal rubes of the BBC, but the banks and railroads should probably be nationalized first, NHS reformed and actually funded.

The Venezuelan Bolivar is also backed by that same oil and gold.

This is the memest meme that has ever memed


what a glorious image

wargame owns

maybe neocons will finally stop concern trolling about peeds in hollywood at least

they'll say Moore was obviously set up by the LIEbral media

FCC won’t delay vote, says net neutrality supporters are “desperate”


It's like I'm made of hate now.

Does this surprise anyone?

When Ajit Pai dies, and to be clear that's not a threat (but if anybody ever had the inclination to try anything, I'm not getting between them and their target), I say we buy his grave and wall it off and charge his family extra to get to it. Only fair.

McConnell thinks Republicans can retain their power if they run on this bill.

I don't think I've ever encountered something so deluded.

its been crawling ever since the civil war with the rest of the gringo south

Can we publicly execute Ajit Pai in the revolution?

drag his corpse through Wall Street on a liberated Comcast van

The audacity of these people. Net neutrality is really getting killed isn't it?

Why are An-Caps such subhumans?

They would ask you the same question. reddit.com/r/Anarcho_Capitalism/comments/7hg1o4/the_left_sets_honduras_on_fire_after_losing_an/

One tries to free people from needless work and humiliation and the other wants to profit from it, go back to your shit incel board and stay there

God forbid people take action against the state

Did he just refer to himself in the third person?

That's because, like most rural poor, they focus on trivial social issues instead of the big picture.

the ban doesn't even do anything of importance, it's just posturing especially once you realize it's just the muslim countries that are geopolitical enemies of the US on the list and not places like the KSA

2018 and 2020 are going to be a slaughter for the GOP based off their performance for the last year

That’s what would happen if America had a functioning opposition party

Stop reading twitter

lol no, it´s fun waking up to Donald´s slapstick

Not sure if you read what you posted (wouldn't surprise me if you hadn't) but none of those things are 'leftist'

I'm still not sure if you're a parody or not. Also The House of Prayer for All People was Christian and didn't allow members to watch any movies made past 1960.

It's not like Corbyn is planning to burn City to the ground and strangle the Remembrancer.

Innocent until proven guilty.

Ah shit we fascists now.


What part of getting around sanctions did you not understand.

So I guess women will just get to accuse anyone of rape under communism then?

I'm really curious if there has been an increase in sex crimes since Trump came into office. The year is almost over so stats should be out soon.

I'm trying.

Sounds based.

Is /r/ancap an openly reactionary subreddit at this point?


Nah, sit him up in a chair and hold his mouth open. Give people BB guns and let them play that carnival game where you shoot out the teeth.

It's Alabama. Talk to anyone from the state and they'll tell you that it's a very common thing for older men to do shit with preteens/teens.

I just assume all porkies are varying types of sexual predators.

Holy fuck I got addicted to this game a couple of weeks ago haha

Alabama is practically an oligarchical anacapistan if you think Moore getting "elected" is somehow representative of the general populace of Alabama, shame on you.
