This guy is playing politics. If he wasn't he'd just put in the paperwork instead of sitting down for an interview with CNN.

See how Jack Smith, a serious prosecutor rolls. There are very few press conferences and they are concise and to the point.

This guy is playing games to get publicity, he's probably working on a book deal or whatever right now to monetize the publicity.

it is a good way to try to prevent governments from using that currency issuance power in ways their citizens would prefer they did not.

And instead it should be hedgefunds that have that power?

There is a need for currency and someone is going to have control over the value of that currency. At least with the government you can vote the bastards out.

I've always said the Pro-Palestine crowd and the MAGAs are basically the same people. Gotta ignore anything that doesn't conform to whichever narrative they've gotten sucked into.

I'm asking a question that you won't answer and you're the one just spamming links.

Are you a bot?

For a third time... what are the signs you’d look for to determine whether a cause you’re a part of is a fascist movement?

There are local elections in the West Bank. There aren't national elections because holding a national election in the West Bank only would be an admission that Gaza is a separate territory from the West Bank, so there would no longer be just one Palestine.

Israel asked for help from Arab countries in providing support in dealing with the humanitarian crisis. They laughed in the Israelis faces.

The problem is too many people are willing to let the Palestinians die in order to win some propaganda war against Israel. I don't feel like anyone really cares about Palestinians. They'd rather Palestinians die so they can have proof Israel is evil.

Joe Biden has built a pier to provide aid. This is more than anyone else has done to prevent famine. But the propaganda says he's "Genocide Joe".

Hamas is a fascist group that gained power with a plurality of the votes and never had an election after that. Their goal is to restore the ethnic makeup of the region to how it was in the history books. They make propaganda centered around past humiliations in war and promote the need for strongmen to make things right. They are misogynistic and homophobic. Promoting ethnic cleansing has always been a central policy for them, and on October 7 they moved up to genocide.

Sorry, but Hamas wins the prize for organizations most like the Nazis. And like the Nazis they are currently having their ass handed to them by a democracy.

Look at the photos of German cities at the end of WWII. Which city in the world currently looks like those photos?

Fascism is a self-destructive thing. The same way that the hatred of the Nazis brought about the destruction of Germany, The hatred of Hamas has destroyed Gaza. The German people turned away from the politics of hatred following WWII and that's worked out really well for them. Sadly I'm not sure the same will happen for the Palestinian people because there are people far removed from Gaza that continue to promote hatred and refuse to acknowledge the evil of Hamas. The suffering of the Palestinian people won't end until they can overcome their hatred.

Be honest, if you had a lot of nukes lying around, you wouldn't at least consider nuking the moon?

Also when you think about it, nuking the Moon is way less insane than nuking the Earth over 2000 times.

Wind and Solar are cheaper now, and we won't have to trade a dependence on oil from foreign countries for a dependence on uranium from foreign countries. We won't in the future have to hear about how the people of Kazakhstan will greet us liberators when we invade the country to establish freedom and have to pretend it's merely a coincidence they happen to have the energy resources we're dependent on.

I'm already buying shares in BlimpX! He's a visionary, first Hyperloop, now BlimpX! What'll be the next thing from 80+ year old popular science mags for the real life Tony Stark will invent?

Considering the lore, the Doctor changing genders or race is very far down on the list of tests of suspension of disbelief.

I'm too busy being outraged over the Moon being a dragon egg to worry at all about any of this.

Protest swiftly condemned by all levels of government; organizing group denies hospital targeted

Toronto police say they are increasing their presence along hospital row after a pro-Palestinian protest downtown on Monday night, including outside Mount Sinai Hospital.

Toronto Police Service spokesperson Stephanie Sayer told CBC News the increased police presence is to ensure that essential hospital services and emergency routes remain accessible.

"Interfering with the operations of a hospital is not acceptable," Sayer wrote in an email.

Police have not said if the hospital's operations were impacted by the protest. The hospital has not responded to CBC News's request for comment.

"The Toronto Police Service is investigating several incidents that occurred in front of Mount Sinai Hospital and along the demonstration route. As we have said before, officers use their discretion during large crowd demonstrations and even if arrests are not deemed safe to make at the time, investigations will continue and charges can be laid at a later date," Sayer said.

GENEVA, Jan 26 (Reuters) - The United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) said on Friday it had opened an investigation into several employees suspected of involvement in the Oct. 7 attacks in Israel by Hamas and that it had severed ties with those staff members. "The Israeli authorities have provided UNRWA with information about the alleged involvement of several UNRWA employees in the horrific attacks on Israel on October 7," said Philippe Lazzarini, UNRWA Commissioner-General.

"To protect the agency's ability to deliver humanitarian assistance, I have taken the decision to immediately terminate the contracts of these staff members and launch an investigation in order to establish the truth without delay."

Lazzarini did not disclose the number of employees allegedly involved in the attacks, nor the nature of their alleged involvement. He said, however, that "any UNRWA employee who was involved in acts of terror" would be held accountable, including through criminal prosecution.

I'm going to the game tomorrow and I want my Jose Bautista bobblehead!

Does anyone know how long before the game you have to be at the Skydome before they run out of bobble heads?
