Activist against police brutality gets wasted. Who didn't think it was the police?

First I thought it was a dick move. But when reading on it was said that he wanted to retire on his 50th birthday. At an age where others still have to work 10-15+ years. Also I assume he still has enough cash and his pension is pretty high regardless. It's hard to feel sorry for him.

Trump's a hero.

and you missed point number one: he's a FBI Pedo.

Only thing he deserves is hot lead.

Surely this won't backfire at all..

AP Learns that McCabe kept memos regarding Trump

Trump once again shoots himself in the foot for petty reasons.

The FBI sucks though, do we love Hoover now?

Like this shit is going to do anything to the FBI. It's just Trump stupidly swinging his fists and hitting his own face. Again.

So, that means we're rooting for Trump and want him to make wise political decisions? Fuck out of her with that Drumpf shit.

Could you just shut up and enjoy the president being a massive fucking tool

But we want him to fuck up, why should we interrupt him making a mistake? It should be a celebration!

I whole-heartedly support Trump in his righteous crusade against the Alphabet Soup.

He just made the Secretary of State the Chief of the CIA and appointed the next chief of the CIA a person who oversaw torture in a blacksite prison in Thailand

So no, you're retarded

In fact I wouldn't be surprised if Trump further merge the CIA with JSOC and the military

Good. Makes the mass executions that much easier.

You're the one who didn't reply to my point at all and you're calling me dumb.

You said he's merging the alphabet soup into one super agency. I said good: because then when their time comes they can all get the bullet together instead of individual parts trying to feign innocence they can all reap their reward together.

Do you understand now? Do want to actually reply or just quote my posts and post pictures?

This started when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State

You are literal drooling retard

They weren't stolen. It's clear that it was an execution, a cowardly one. It was in the middle of a wealthy middle class neighborhood and no one heard anything.

Bourgeois democracy in action. Also, am I way off when assuming that half of these incidents are due to US meddling, the other half due to the Mexican mafia?

Good for them.

Of course. Facebook wouldn't want this story to come out since they use that data too.

That's what I was implying. Guess I could've done the whole "stolen" or something but then people still don't pick up on it. Of course it was the cops. I knew as soon as I heard anti-police activist shot dead.

You are retard. Retard.

Who brought up Hillary Clinton? I Ctrl-f'd it but the only post that comes up is yours, what gives?

Mexico's largest railroad is owned by American railroads, so there's no difference. One of the explicit aims of NAFTA was to destroy Mexico's national railroad company, which it was successful in doing so. The golden goose here is of course the state oil company which American companies obviously want to rip apart too.

It's all US meddling, but the meddling runs so deep that it operates through the Mexican government itself. Remember that the modern Mexican regime was born out of capitalists who were seeing their country melt down into catholic communism in WW1. America (a protestant nation!) moved right in and helped them, arming and training them to become capable of purging communist activity. The US Republican party eventually came to reform the Mexican capitalists in their own image, but with a more fascist bent. Mexico's regime was explicitly anticlerical for this reason until the late 80s, around the time talk about a North American free trade agreement began getting serious.

Pics related, the US government literally sold gas bombs to the Mexican Army who promptly shelled churches with them. Entire villages were destroyed, child soldiers on both sides strung each other up like animals. In the end the side with the better industrial base one, and this was the US-backed faction. This is also why Mexico was allowed to create national rail and petroleum monopolies, because they were needed to keep the country stable. Trotsky's presence in the capital was only tolerated because the capital was mostly industrialized, whereas the communism in the country was in the rural north led by religious farmers.

It was a violent conflict, and without direct US support (including NAFTA) Mexico wouldn't exist in it's current form due to all the farmers wanting the central government and American businesses to fuck off. Which is why the Mexican Army has gradually reestablished it's role as a national police, judge and jury under the guise of fighting narcos.
