The Saudi prince’s state visit was a clear example of propaganda

The adverts for Mohammed bin Salman that smeared the papers last week show how the corporate media serves as a mouthpiece for the powerful, writes Ben Cowles

US is going to roll out a trade war against China this week or next. Targeting over a $100 billion in imports as well as IP concerns, allowing Chinese companies to operate in the US, and preventing Chinese students and workers from coming to the US. Some of this is still in the rumor/leak stage though.
That said, the US will end up getting buttfucked by the WTO or even better, leave the WTO

Oh, I realized why the news wants me to be afraid of china and russia-
Its 80s nostalgia, just like all those TV shows and movies, for the cold war.

The only thing, as a westerner, that worries me about Russia is their oligarichal expansionism eventually leading to some major collision between them and NATO. I don't want another European war, let alone one that could quickly go nuclear

neo-Holla Forums will defend this

we need to embrace massive devastation, its been coming a while anyway

200% sad. Wheelchair science man was pretty based tbh, only given 2 years to live, made it to 76.

Russia can't even recede fast enough for NATO's own expansionism to start a major collision instead.

Don't be a pussy.

Current numbers are
They're currently waiting on provisional ballots and any military or overseas ballots.

However, this is a big coup for the Democrats. Pennsylvania's 12th district was solid red district which Trump won by 20 percentage points. Conor Lamb destroyed that by winning 172 precincts won by Trump in 16. The Trump gang's visit didn't help and the GOP ended up wasting 10 million dollars.

The big takeaways from this election are that the Tax Cut isn't working, Trump isn't working, and the GOP are vulnerable. If a "safe" race like this can get tight, everything is in play. You can expect more retirements from the House Republicans.

Now I want those observers to be sent over there. I still think Maduro has a chance win because only petit-bourgie fucks support the opposition. It's gonna be grand if he wins though.

Looks like Bolton got a job offer as well, not sure what for yet. Looks like war with Iran is in the air for 2019

I wouldn't be surprised if every government head becomes just another mouthpiece for Trump.

That's the real goal of all of these staff shake ups: finding spineless sycophants who'll confirm Trump's biases.
