Has anyone ever actually seen a picture of this Q dude?

 

 

Some people suspect that Q is actually Jim Watkins. Others suspect that it is in fact Bigfoot.:bigblush:

 

  • Many have pointed fingers at Jim Watkins, the owner of fringe forum 8kun, as the potential voice behind 'Q,' the anonymous figure whose "Q drops" on the online message board inspired the QAnon conspiracy theory. 
  • But experts say QAnon adherents would not bat an eye if they learned that 'Q' was not Trump or a deep-state insider — a core aspect of the QAnon conspiracy theory.

I couldn’t agree more with AOC’s tweet.

Damn Right.

The next couple of years will illustrate if we go back to politics like usual pre trump,or politicians that genuinely care for the rapidly shrinking middle-class and even more importantly those at the bottom of the wealth pyramid,which is basically an inverted pyramid.

What really pisses me off is the United States adminstration attitude towards Saudi Arabia and in particular MBS,while at the same time demonizing Iran.

 

15 of the 19 terrorist's involved in the 9/11 bombing were Saudis,their war crimes in Yemen which has led to the largest humanitarian crisis on the planet.

The treatment of women in their society.

 

But hey we sell them weapons so let's just posture a bit.

 

They're as bad as China, and the US is in a position to actually do something about it and put some pressure on them.  Stop selling weapons and start using weapons on MBS.

People getting pissed off with political games and nothing getting accomplished is why they gamble on snake oil salesmen and grifters. If the dems don’t get this right it’ll be back to Trump or even scarier, someone as bad but smarter. I’m not overly confident in the dems at the moment.

This relationship originates from the time FDR secretly met King abdul aziz ibn saud in 1945.

Apparently he was trying to convince the king to accept 10.000 Israelis in Palestine which went against his promise to Churchill that he would not interfere because GB controlled Palestine.

 

He also wanted to obtain access to Saudi oil for America.

The good politicians get disillusioned and get out.

I was reading just before last year's election that AOC was pissed and thinking of not running.

To quote her 

"I genuinely don't know.I don't even know if I want to be in politics".

What's your problem mate ?

 

While I hold some of the current batch of democratic politicians in contempt,none of them comes close to being as bad as the lying,narcistic POS that trump was,is and always will be.

Why is personality more important than policy? Seems like a red herring deflection. If that's the case than this thread might as well be closed if people aren't actually going to talk politics and just piss on whoever because they don't like them.

 

Should I find one of the millions of quotes when people in this thread try to call out Trump supporters when he did some dumb s---? People who created the unwritten rules of this thread need to live by them and not whine when it gets thrown in their faces.

 

If I have a problem it's because I knew this would happen, I said it would happen and people on their high horse with rose smelling manure didn't want to hear it. Now here's the truth plain as day and people have their heads in the sand, and say things like ah, at least he's not Trump, what a weak a-- crutch of an excuse.

 

The funny part is, people will think I'm a Trump supporter for saying this because their world is so black and white, zebras everywhere.

Buddy your actual words were " same s different colour".

 

The difference between  trumps and the repugnicants s versus the Dems s is vast

 

If you have you read my posts in this thread you will be cognizant with the fact I hold most politicians in contempt however there are some on the democratic side that actually want to help the American people.

 

Nothing in this world is black or white,even good and bad are subjective things,however to try and compare the repugs to the Dems is ludicrous.

 

Take the example of the repugs state legislatures trying to suppress the voting rights of Americans while at a federal level the Dems are trying to strengthen those rights.

I could go on but the list is endless.

 

As I have always stated it is a choice between a giant douche or a turd sandwich.

I believe the Dems will actually help the American people far more than the repugs ever will.

KSA regime is one of the most abhorrent ones out there.

Besides what you mentioned they are the biggest exporter of extremist beliefs and funding of radical madrasas in the world.

The fact that U.S, Canada, Europe, Israel etc. do business with them and sell them the weapons is disgusting!

The day when black gold was discovered in the desert and Aramco was formed was not a good day for humanity and human rights.

Western greed and medieval mindset are bad combo.
