What a miserable planet. Thank you based news user


Didn't know this scour parasite wanted his porky hands over US prole, less that he's being actively enabled by Trump.

wew lad

The amerifat military is largely a paper tiger. Its air force is the only reason it is still even somewhat effective.

For those of you who tldr this one he is dissecting an interview Peterson did with an idiot liberal feminist he slaughtered and the argument of the article basically boils down to "Jordan is making assumptions about how hardwired certain tendencies are in human behavior that lead to the gender pay gap." Jordan says they are biological and the author says "but how do you know their not social?"

Boring honestly.

Uh? Why the fuck would the Israeli government want to do that?

I SERIOUSLY doubt this. Haven't the marines never lost a battle or somethi g insane like that?


Fuckken lmao

Here's the link to the maps.

I've been cross checking the dozen military bases in Syria and I'm pretty sure google specifically doesn't update these areas on their satellite maps. Also I REALLY dont like the number of bases I can find in Northern Africa.

also people have found this weird area of activity off the coast of Sendai where there's nothing but water. So either there's a glitch in the system or japan has a secret underwater city

Ladies and gents, we are about to have our first climate change started rebellion outside the ME.

forgot pic

I just checked R*java and found 5-6.

Literally why

Thanks for the daily blackpill newsanon.

The bill outlaws the usage of the phrase "Polish death camps".


Just for one day can everything not be so shit. I didn't get any sleep last night, my eyes are bloodshot, and on a personal note I could very well be fired today from one of my jobs for "underperforming" because I had a restless sleep

FBI’s McCabe Steps Down Amid Trump Criticism, Source Says

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who has received blistering criticism from President Donald Trump, has stepped down and will be on leave until he retires sometime in the spring, a person familiar with the matter said Monday.

That's just flatly absurd the Marines haven't been in a serious force on force engagement since Korea and we all know they didn't that


We're living in a fucking comedy sketch


Trump will be going after Rod Rosenstein next.

Im a burger and the marines were recruiting kids left and right when I was in high school so I may have just been lied to my whole life but I'm pretty sure that I'm right.

I know the Korean war was a draw but what I'm claiming is that whenever the marines have been deployed as a battle group and sent to engage an enemy they haven't lost even if the army did and they had to retreat with them.

If someone can prove to me that I'm wrong please do because I would much rather be wrong than right in this particular situation.


Also in a lot of trouble, mainly due to maintenance issues, not at the levels of the rest of the branches though

might be a sub base

I'm in SoCal and it always the Air Force ROTC for me. Every campus you went, Air Force ROTC

Kim Jung Un's brother was meeting with Americans just prior to assassination


And it won't be the last

People's Korea stands strong against imperialist cyberwarfare. Tourists have been tracked, but not the Korean people (besides those in Occupied Korea).

Please provide evidence I am incorrect I am both willing and able to retract my statement. I don't even want it to be true I may have been lied to by marine recruiters my whole life.

Philippines in WW2
fighting near the Yalu river during Chinese intervention into the Korean war
Those are just a start

As a whole the US military as never been up to par against their equivalents and as such limited their wars to nations several tiers below them in capability, then post war they pretend the nations they fought were Elite fighting machines planning on invading the US and they also cover up losses as well


Frelinghuysen Exit Adds To House GOP Retirement Woes


There are currently 33 House GOP that will not be running in 2018, 7 of them being Committee Chairmen. The Dems only need 24 seats to win the House.

With registry deadlines for the 2018 mid-terms coming up in a few weeks, I expect we'll see even more retirements.

Is this the New England aristocracy I've been hearing so much about?

I mean Comrade Kim is my niBBa but losing your shit and crying around him is ridiculous.

nod my gomrade

Objectively the Marines have an excellent battle record but they aren't undefeated. The most recent example would be the 1st Battle of Fallujah which was ultimately a defeat but was spun as a victory that they couldn't afford to have again.

I'm not that convinced about NJ 11th district being as competitive as they think it is. Trump barely won the district yeah but he still won it in an election where he lost the popular vote. Romney carried the district by 5 points, McCain by almost 10 points. They haven't elected a democrat in over 30 years. It depends on the candidate the Republicans try to run, they find a Roy Moore sure it might be competitive. A bland more establishment Republican, I don't think that's a contest.

NJ isn't really New England, and the Frelinghuysen's don't have eternal automatic acceptance to Harvard or anything, but it's the same concept. The family is effectively New Jersey nobility.

Yeah, I'm guessing they are Dutch? Frelinghuysen sounds pretty Dutch. Which is a whole different class of old money.

Suburban voters are what's going to make it competitive. Urban conservatives do not like Trump or his base. Without the threat of Hillary, they're not really motivated to help him retain control of Congress.

>33 40 House GOP


geen verrassing oetz

Ya, Google has had a relationship with the US government forever.

Its funny because if this shit happend in the USSR no one would shut the fuck up about it

Movable oil rigs?


The goalposts will still be moved by white nationalists or dumbasses who unironically think the ANC or Western Cape/Cape Town-dominating DA are socialist parties.

the US marines lost a few battles early in ww2 and plenty of battles in vietnam and korea

To be fair the marines retreated when anyone could see it was pants on head retarded to continue

Thank you based news user!

They would just blame it on them being black and thusly stupid.
It isn't like they would even try to analyze the situation beyond that.

Cape Town is literally the whitest city in Africa, there's only so much you can blame on Zuma, the guy just fucks, his fucking doesn't dry the reservoir. I'm not really sure what the point of having four wives is if you're going to cheat, just have one if you love cucking people so much.

I don't see what's motivating them to come out and vote for Democrats either though. Those urban conservatives might stay home, but they're also not likely to come out for a Democrat unless the GOP nominates a nutjob. In which case some might swig Democrat but most will just stay home anyway. Trump's base will come out of course, but the Democrats really do not have much of a base in the 11th district to mobilize. The bulk of the 11th consists of Morris County which is one of the most heavily Republican counties in the state, and where I used to live as it happens. The Democrats have little party infrastructure in the county and haven't made a serious play for the seat in years, those suburban voters are by and large wealthy and lean heavily Republican.

The (white, DA member) mayor of Cape Town along with the (DA-controlled) Cape Town Council literally stopped desalinization because it was too expensive or whatever.

DA is listed as centrist, do they mean centrist as in the center of the earth? That's how far they're drilling


Hope everything's okay

Well that blows a hole in the "Trump didn't do anything for Russia" defense.

DA is packed full of apartheid-era National Party Afrikaners.

I warned you about the future bro

I love it when reactionaries slapfight

I constantly see news about the Kochs spending outrageous sums on political meddling, but never how much Soros does. I wonder how they compare.

Phage therapy, problem solved.

Google censors plenty of sensitive and "sensitive" Uncle Sam sites. About a decade ago, Google Maps was still new and a STEM professor was showing it off. He found his alma mater and zoomed in, only to see a badly blurred empty lot.

how stupid are you to believe that

liberal feminists have no utopian vision beyond a world in which 50% of software engineers and investment bankers are women.
