US quits ‘biased’ UN human rights council – BBC News:

THEY ARE DOING THIS TO GET AWAY WITH LOCKING UP CHILDREN. IGNORING HUMAN RIGHTS OF ASYLUM SEEKERS.
THE U.N. SHOULD PROSECUTE THE US GOVERNMENT FOR CHILD TORTURE.
THERE IS NO OTHER REASON.

Finally, John McCain sees the truth. Too bad he won’t be around long enough to help fix it.

Too many in Congress see the truth, and don’t do anything because of money and party.  The people don’t mean anything to the repugs.

The only republicans who have criticised trump are the ones like McCain who aren’t seeking re-election.

We all know the pro life movement is full of shit. They only care abt controlling wm. They don’t care abt the children. Because if u were a real prolife advocate u would b completely disgusted

Holy fucking shit, this is actually happening. 

I’m sorry but you gotta stop this now. It’s a criminal act. This is what dictators do.

“Of all the modern economic theories, the economic system of Marxism is founded on moral principles, while capitalism is concerned only with gain and profitability. Marxism is concerned with the distribution of wealth on an equal basis and the equitable utilization of the means of production. It is also concerned with the fate of the working classes – that is the majority – as well as with the fate of those who are underprivileged and in need, and Marxism cares about the victims of minority-imposed exploitation. For those reasons the system appeals to me, and it seems fair … The failure of the regime in the Soviet Union was, for me not the failure of Marxism but the failure of totalitarianism.” (Dalai Lama, 1996, Beyond Dogma: Dialogues and Discourses)

Chronology of U.S.-North Korean Nuclear and Missile Diplomacy | Arms Control Association:

Just a little something for all the people who genuinely think what Trump just did is some great unprecedented victory for the world and the USA.

He basically gave numerous military concessions and validated a brutal dictator on the world stage, all for the sake of some fresh propaganda for North Korea and a vague agreement that they’ve already vaguely agreed to but never bothered to in any way follow through on like dozens of times.

This was not a victory. It was pointless nonsense.

And if you still don’t get it, just imagine how Trump’s current cheer squad would have reacted if Obama met with Kim Jong Un and promised an end to military exercises in South Korea in exchange for some vague super-serious pinky promise about maybe abandoning the nuclear program this time.
