God, I fucking can't stand Bill Maher...got that out of the way.

 

I do give Maher props for calling out Jeremy Scahill, who decided to boycott this episode because he didn't want Milo Yiannopolous' (who's essentially a troll) views aired. A pretty sad indictment for a journalist.

 

The CIA guy, Mr. Nance, I guess, would take a whole other thread to address his social engineering rhetoric.

 

Good post, rise. Lots to chew on in there.

 

In a somewhat related conversation (this could easily have it's own thread), here's a much longer clip of Joe Rogan's discussion with Professor Jordan Peterson, initially discussing a controversy regarding gender pronouns and eventually going much, much deeper. Peterson has totally blown up after this interview and is now all over the place. I don't agree with him on everything but he has some very compelling things to say. Highly recommend this conversation if you're into this sort of thing.

Thanks August.  I love how we can turn some twisted fringe views into a good discussion, examine both sides (yet realize there are more than 2 sides and in fact some 360 degrees of perspectives around any particular issue), an owned media with their dark agenda apart from and perhaps even opposite that of the public, a jaded government that doesnt serve the people anymore but rather sees them as their enemy, and a lop sided inequality economic problem overlapping with rising violent crime and 7 billion constant streams of thoughts surrounding constantly changing current events.  Bread and circus. Sports and politics.  Bait and switch, divide and conquer; still works splendidly.  I enjoy how we toss the ball around here.

Looks like Yiannopolous may have finished his fifteen minutes of fame.

And begun his 15+ years of infamy... (or whenever we finally forget about him altogether)

 

 

Anyone placing bets on when Conway will implode?

Conway is a great athlete in the sport of goal post moving.  So quick on her feet, so agile.   She deserves Hall of Fame status.

I took real pleasure out of seeing Yiannopoulos bite it.  Maher didn't really move me before, but after I heard he gave some softball interview to Milo, I knew I was done with him, too.

 

Yiannopoulos thinks himself some kind of champion for free speech.  The way I see it, he brings free speech issues to the fore in the same way that the KKK or NAMBLA might.

Please note the Senator's assessment of how the middle class was gobbled up by the top ten %, since Reagan and the 1980s.  Before that, 70% of us shared in 90% of the pie, but since the 80s, 90% of US GDP has been going solely to the top 10% richest, while 90% got squeezed out completely.  There's something deeply troubling about that; sortof a coup where our national assets were secretly and generationally stolen, without anyone noticing until we look back at the horrifying graphs that illustrate the massive theft. Meanwhile we cant even get a quarter raise in the minimum wage.  We cant even get student loans, so that the interest doesnt crush the borrowers.  And these are our representatives?  Gov't itself is degrading and decaying and becoming obsolete, right before our eyes.

She is wrong about what the Democratic administrations have done.  Clinton and Obama were both disastrous.   The Party Dems get done what the Republicans can't get away with, and both parties have the same donors, whom the Dems serve  more efficiently.

 

 

I bought this guy's book, read it, bought 3 more copies to give away.  Listen to what he was saying last year, before the Democrats sunk Bernie.
