    this country needs a stronger leader, not some old geezer that seems a bit wimpy. I am not saying we should keep trump though, that guy is a loose cannon.

    I don't think you understand how this works; anyone in Politics knows they have a limited time.

    Nobody has any delusions of continually winning because of the cyclical nature of Politics.
    Even Presidents limit themselves to 1-2 major things they can actually get done in 1 Term.

    The current senior members of the Party spent most of their professional lives setting the stage for the last few years and they will be well compensated by their benefactors.

    Your current score tallying means nothing because the scope of their work was for the last few years.
    Like I said before, I wouldn't be surprised if this Term is the time most will bow out and open that Golden Parachute.

    I really don't understand why I even need to explain this, but if your analysis is this shallow then maybe it's best to stick to that 1-Dimensional Checkers.

    Considering we know that some of the capitol police officers let insurrectionists just waltz through the front gate, screening procedures should've been in place from the beginning.

    No thanks, I'd sooner castrate myself with a rusty spoon than become a neocon.

    They are installing concrete dividers, not a "12 foot wall". There are also no pictures as of 30 minutes ago showing anything that appears taller then 8 feet.

    The "Crane" that you can see in the tweet video is used to grab and install concrete dividers... That's what that "clamp" is used for at the end of the boom.
    Compare the stills to the following pictures below them.

    Also don't forget, the current president is still Donald Trump so if anyone is putting up "walls" it's still under Trumps presidency. Other then the clear fact that it's actually a fence.

    What may physically appear wimpy to you, may end up surprising you. He probably has bigger balls then trump and is ready to stand firm against Russia, China and North Korea unlike Trump who was too pussy to cross them. Trump rather retreat then stand his ground in other countries to support peace and to support DMZ's. All Trump does is RETREAT and builds a wall around himself. He's a fucken pussy! So yeah I believe President Joe Biden will be 10 times the man Trump is and ever will be.

    Ohh hello, this must be Tabzer or shamzie with a new burner account. Lol
    Your ill informed... Trump is still president so Biden cannot order the army to do anything and he cannot tell anyone to build those fences... This is all done while Trump is still president.By the way, Biden is not a dictator, you may actually be pleasantly surprised that President Joe Biden will do more for America, than Trump has ever done in his whole life. Stop watching fake FOX news and stop being so ignorant.

    Ehm? On a crowd? You chinese by any chance? ;)

    edit: Ah sorry - misunderstood.

    But still partly false.

    Insurectionists used reverse psychological tactics to breach police lines pretty quickly, and the capitol police _was_ understaffed, thanks to our beloved allseeing three later agencies, that didnt see that one coming - again.

    So for that case, the procedure is to 'retract' anyhow. (Stand firm until the people are in the tunnels.. ;) )

    And by didnt see it coming I dont mean 'do screenings on people attending demonstrations'.

    I took the time to read every single link you posted...
    First of all, all of the deaths except for one are black and brown people.

    The majority of the deaths are from unknown killers, so you cannot say that these are due to BLM protesters cause it could very well be from the far right groups.

    One person that was caught killing a black person in the streets during a riot was a young White person that is now in jail.

    The white woman who was killed at night under a bridge had an altercation with some blacks where her husband pulled out a gun on them, she was later shot in a second altercation with the same people.

    The older retired police officer was shot dead as he was "protecting" a local pawn shop from looters at night.

    There is no proof that any of those shootings are related to the peaceful protests that took place during the day. What took place at night was NOT BLM because there was a curfew and BLM people were following Floyd's family's request and are mostly law abiding citizens. The people that committed those crimes were just random people... Not to be assossiated to the BLM just because they are either black or whatever stupid opinion you may have.

    Now in regards to the Capitol riots, all of that violence where they beat cops and broke everything inside the capitol and chanted hang Mike Pence and chanted kill Pelosi where they also killed a Capitol police... This all happened in the day, this all happened with these Trump followers... This is all filmed and these people have mostly all been or will be arrested.

    So please, don't try to assossiated or relate BLM peaceful day protests to the illegal shit show that tried to disrupt and destroy our democracy inside the capitol.

    Yeah, how ridiculous is this. I don't know if this has anything to do with Trump, but man... *facepalm*

    And the last part:

    “It was preordained that Mexican justice would not move forward with prosecuting General Cienfuegos,” Vigil said. “It will greatly stain the integrity of its judicial system and despite the political rhetoric of wanting to eliminate corruption, such is obviously not the case. The rule of law has been significantly violated.”

    Wtf...

    That's pure speculation and most likely not true.

    Farage is not far right. UKIP is bordering on far right now because he left and it was taken over by loonies. Brexit Party cannot be far right by definition because it's the Brexit Party and doesn't comment on anything else.

    *A centre-right joke.

    This is why the concept of a solid left wing and right wing begins to break down in the modern day. There's also the issue that everyone likes to think they are closer to the centre than they actually are, so where a party stands on the spectrum is also somewhat subjective. As I've said above, the Conservative Party is centre-right, but you'll have people like smf swearing blind that they are strongly right wing. Spoiler alert, they aren't strong right at all. Of course, its exact position on the spectrum changes a bit with every new leader, but it generally stays within the realms of centre-right.

    No, that's Trump's wall. Biden doesn't get into power until Wednesday, remember? I'm getting sick of your pathetic attempts at propaganda. It reminds me of some morons on twitter 4 years ago just after Trump was elected blaming him for bombing Syria, even though he had only been elected some days ago and couldn't possibly have given orders to bomb Syria at this time. No, those were Obama's bombs. You would have hypocritically laughed at that, so don't do the exact same bs please.

    No, no, no. Trump was the one who started an economic war with China and is losing it because he stood firm against China. If you're expecting Biden to come out and publicly condemn those countries, you'd be badly mistaken. No sane leader would do that because it's terrible for diplomacy and the economy. If he's smart, he'll look to strengthen economic ties with both Europe and SE Asia in the fallout of COVID so that China doesn't move even further into those places than it already has. Also, Trump's moves with NK were good. Encouraging a better relationship between the west and NK is good. Yeah, it might be the worst shithole on the planet, but you just can't come out and say that. As a world leader you have to look to build constructive relationships as much as possible, and never be the aggressor. If you publicly condemn countries and other world leaders, you are a bad leader and you're taking your country into a cave. Ironically, that's what makes Trump such a bad politician; he comes out and says whatever he feels like saying. As a president, you shouldn't do that. Soft power matters, and the Chinese understand that. As much as he's an evil dictator, you have to give credit to Jinping; he's a political genius when it comes to using soft power. He knows how to play someone as flawed as Trump to his advantage. And, to be honest, Trump has done a lot of the work for him; many countries have distanced themselves from the US and are now looking to China as a reliable partner because of Trump. Hopefully, Biden and Harris are smarter than Trump is and do what they can to get back that trust and confidence that the US has lost.

    I think you misunderstand what speculation means. Someone didn't say "I think this happened" they claim to have seen photographic evidence.

    I don't know how to calculate a probability of it being true.

    Yeah, because it takes so much internal knowledge to see someone scream about walls not working yet then go build walls.

    So when Trump denies migrants entry it's wrong, but when Biden does it you make excuses. Got it.

    If you ever have anything serious to say please do. I'm not sure why you're allowed to simply troll other members and post memes as when Conservatives on this site do that to Liberals their posts are deleted.

    No, those walls are being erected to prevent protesters from interfering with Biden's inauguration by restricting access to public property. Though you make a good point. For the next 6 months of so the recovering economy will be be thanks to Trump. We'll have to wait about 6 months until Biden fucks it all up. However, that doesn't change the fact Biden's inauguration is the reason behind the capitol fencing. It's being built for the people who claim "walls don't work".

    There's a reason for the hundreds BLM protests and riots and there's a reason for the single DC protest and single riot. Whether or not you agree with each happening is your opinion, not fact. You believe one is justified and the other is not. Some people think the DC protests were justified and the BLM were not. Some people think both weren't justified and that includes me. Some don't even care. It's all simply opinions not fact. Though I understand. It's taken your side almost 4 years to realize facts are what matters so I understand you're still getting opinions mixed up with facts. Your side are slow learners after all ...

    Actually you're right. There were a few people out of the couple hundered that were posting and saying these sorts of things. Although, they didn't represent the entire few hundred people (out of the original 100,000+). They were a small fraction of the minority.

    See above.

    People were dying every week since the BLM riots started back before summer. Much more people have died in the BLM rioting all of this last year compared to the 3 or 4 from the single DC riot. I honestly haven't kept count, but it seems after a quick search @Hanafuda was able to find a few of them.

    In his and their eyes the election was rigged and it could have been. They believed they were doing the right thing just like the people who support BLM believe they are doing the right thing. It boils down to personal opinions and if you agree with either cause. I don't agree with the hundreds of BLM protests or the single DC protest.

    Brick Detention Cells vs Metal Cages. Fence vs Wall. They are all barriers to keep people in or out and they do work. Also, the walls are being erected for Biden not for Trump.

    There's no difference between killing normal citizens compared to kill government officials. The BLM protesters also had lots of explosive devices that were actually used against people they didn't agree with and the police. They had Molotov cocktails and other improvised incendiary devices (such as napalm) they were throwing at others, which a lot resulted in the victims being severally burnt or even killed. The rioters in Portland just a couple of weeks ago were attacking the police with such devices. The difference between the BLM devices and the two pipe bombs found in DC is that the pipe bombs weren't used.

    Actually, you are sorta right about this one. A few rioters out of the few hundred that broke off of the main 100,000 people protest did indeed call for harm to become various political members. So I was wrong.

    The difference is the bombs weren't used compared to the BLM riots where many devices were used to mame and kill.

    I am considering the size of the group. There were 2 pipe bombs and 100,000 people and to this day no one knows who placed those pipe bombs. The bombs were found and disposed of. Now if you contrast that to the BLM riots and how many Molotov cocktails and napalm containing devices were actually used a couple of pipe bombs that didn't even go off don't even compare.

    Your fixation with this is bloody hilarious because there is no comparison between a wall built to stop illegals getting into the country and a wall to stop terrorists.

    You know fine well anyway wanting illegally into America can do it by plane or boat or by tunnel or in the back of a lorry or by a number of other means. All the wall does is make them go with some other option to get in.

    The security wall around the capital has 20,000 National Guard troops protecting it. There is no time for anyone to built tunnels to bypass it. They can't use a boat or a lorry to bypass it. And any plane in unauthorised airspace will be shot down. The terrorists have no option other than to try get over it which will end with them being shot to death so to compare the both as you are is quite frankly insane.

    Yeah, comparing structures meant to keep people in or out is insane. What I should be doing is comparing things that don't compare with each other, right?
