    Peter always tries to silence those who are not like him by saying that "this is a precious metals forum". For some reason he doesn't seem to realise that when the owner of the forum included the discussion category of "Current affairs" into Silver Stackers he didn't put it there for decoration. I don't understand why Peter looks at the Current Affairs area of Silver Stackers when he is so opposed to it's very existence.

    @Peter is also a hypocrite of the first order. It’s fine for him to promote his beloved ALP, but when anyone else expresses a view with which he disagrees, he’s the first to jump out of his wheelie-walker and bang on about this place being a PM forum.

    He’s been doing that for about 7-8 years.

    Did the bet welcher really write that up?
    Wtf is wrong with him, thats just sick and the person who fantasized and wrote it up is someone to be avoided.

    More distractions:

    White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney announced that the G7 will be held at Trump National Doral resort in Florida.

    It is, on its face, a clear violation of the US constitution. It's even more likely than before that Trump will become just the third US president to be impeached.

    The constitution forbids US office holders from accepting "any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever" from a foreign state without the approval of Congress.

    Known as the emoluments clause, it reflects the founding fathers' concern, verging on paranoia, about foreign meddling in US politics.
    The clause is so strict that US presidents must ask for permission from Congress to keep any gifts given to them by foreign leaders during diplomatic visits. Without that approval, the presents are deposited at the State Department.

    Yet Trump has awarded his family company a massive contract to host a gathering of the world's most powerful foreign leaders.

    "This is about as direct and profound a violation of the emoluments clause as one could create," Andrew Napolitano, the senior legal analyst at Fox News, said.

    "He has bought himself an enormous headache now with the choice of this."

    At least he knows the place won't be bugged. And if it is, he'll know where they all are.

    It does seem like a dumb decision on the surface but Trump is anything but dumb. He said that he will host the conference at cost. So no profiting from it. It will definitely be used as fuel for the deranged loonies like Napolitano to have a tantrum. Maybe he is just trolling them for fun. Trump would have known exactly what response the Democrats would have to this, he may well be doing it deliberately to increase their impeachment feeding frenzy to further alienate the Democrats from voters and from reality and to have the dying CNN and MSNBC give 24 hour coverage to nothing but Trump and to drive their dwindling audiences even further down.

    At this stage I think every action is aimed at the election - from both sides.

    Triggered much? Have some more.

    There will be photographs once the Second American Civil War commences and the brutality begins.
    • Tens of thousands of MAGA caps, adorn tens of thousands of severed heads, on spikes by the side of the interstate
    • "Comfort Women" for Horny Hector (from Guatamala) and D'Andre (from Sierra Leone)
    • Dispose of their inbred offspring in woodchippers (feet first, to break their sow's spirits)
    • Survivors of the shelling and choking agents in little red rural towns being crammed into their churches and flame-grilled like burger patties
    Genghis Khan will seem like a humantarian in comparison.

    Yeh your trying to make it a joke but post like this are an insight to your sick and twisted mentality.
    So you advocate war crimes, violence against women and general evil acts against people because of their political beliefs.
    Never a better example of the typical left leaning voter can you fund. Using political ideology to justify their evil tendencies and lack of moral fibre

    You are an evil individual and proof of why it is good to have total freedom of speech, so we can identify and avoid nasty people like you.
    So say what you want but it only proves to others the kind of person you are as if your previous fraudulent behavior hasnt already

    Snipped because the examples are disgusting.

    How about you aspire to your better self and delete the post RCS?

    We can find pornographic violence anywhere we care to look. Reciting or inventing new examples of the degradation of humankind does no favours for anyone; reader or writer.

    Yes I did Shaddam and as a general rule I don't repeat or encourage that sort of content, mainly because I don't see it as healthy for writer or reader, and like bad ideas, if left alone they die off.

    I'm not a prude and I totally support freedom of speech, but an "I can top that" race to the bottom of acceptable concepts and scenes of that sort does none of us any good.

    So I hope maturity wins out here and now!

    You were actually the first one I thought of when I read the post about "ultra right wingers". I thought of myself next. I don't know who the other 4 or 5 are?

    Probably anyone who promotes the 2nd Amendment or Trump is defined as an "ultra right winger" by some here.

    What "leftists" don't understand, among other things, is that they help create "ultra right wingers". I voted democrat my entire life until Trump.

    If it weren't for Obama and his progressive leftism, I would still be voting democrat (granted, we wouldn't have the current group of goofy democrat contenders without said progressive Obama probably).

    PS Has anyone noticed that this little brouhaha has shown explicitly in the micro sense that what is often said about the left in the macro sense is completely true?

    That is, if the left disagrees with you, they want your views silenced. PROVEN HERE

    Next, if they disagree with you, they want/fantasize about you being killed or otherwise harmed. PROVEN HERE

    I just took a look at CNN, haven't visited that website for years. It's totally changed, unbelieveable. Even the International edition is bad, no longer a news site, but just deep state propaganda vehicle. No different from Foxnews which was bad last time. I'm now mostly getting my international news from BBC. It will be pathetic if America doesn't have a real news company. Luckily, there is still CNBC.

    It's no wonder only puppets and freaks want to go for the American president, it's the hardest job in the world. You either work for the deep state or become the number one enemy.

    The Syria withdrawal episode, which is opposed by both Democrats and Republicans shows that Trump is an independent and is the only one with the clear head. The argument is America shouldn't withdraw because it will let Russians gain control of Syria. Even if the objective is to control Syria's oil and gas, my question is, why waste money, resources and manpower on something which will be worth zero in 30 years?

    Trump knows that he may not win the re-election next year so the only way to stop this bullshit permanently is to let the Russians take over.

    Then there is the argument, “we” need to protect Israel from Iran. Ok fine. But with the financial state that America is in, how much longer can America protect Israel? 10 years? 20 years?

    the bible land title from Nile to Euphrates, the current occupiers who believe they are the chosen people, they ok with Kurds being their neighbour
    they don't consider wasting money, it was not theirs and it was printed anyway
    the first thing Trump did was insert a piece of paper on the wailing wall wearing a kippah, after his inauguration
    in the end time, most likely Russia will the the power that would totally wipe clean the oppressors, not America

    It is a farce to think Israel needs the US anymore, at this stage they're just milking the last drops from the US tit before its collapse. Israel has been building its military capability for decades whilst the rest of the Middle East has been rotting in corruption and war. They are well prepared for the next stages of their land expansion, but at the same time they significantly underestimate their non state foes (Hezbollah in particular). The coming decade will be very interesting, I hope you have your Popcorn ready.

    It is obvious by now that Trump is a student of the Sun Tzu art of war.

    The 36th strategem... Flee.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirty-Six_Stratagems#If_all_else_fails,_retreat

    If all else fails, retreat[edit]
    • If it becomes obvious that your current course of action will lead to defeat, then retreat and regroup. When your side is losing, there are only three choices remaining: surrender, compromise, or escape. Surrender is complete defeat, compromise is half defeat, but escape is not defeat. As long as you are not defeated, you still have a chance. This is the most famous of the stratagems, immortalized in the form of a Chinese idiom: "Of the Thirty-Six Stratagems, fleeing is best"
    Meanwhile, China is doing this.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirty-Six_Stratagems#Watch_the_fires_burning_across_the_river

    Watch the fires burning across the river[edit])
    • Delay entering the field of battle until all the other players have become exhausted fighting amongst themselves. Then go in at full strength and pick up the pieces.

    Israel will still be a significant power because they don't depend on oil. All regional countries that depend on oil will gradually be weakened as renewables gradually take over the world in the next 30 years. In 30 years, we'll all probably be driving self-driving electric and fuel cell cars and using nuclear, wind, energy.
