Taylor Swift influence next election

Democrats could use Taylor Swift endorsement for their advantage in next election to influence her cult in young generation to vote for Biden. This is very dangerous which Jack Posobiec have tweeted that for months and now New York Times Inside Biden’s Anti-Trump Battle Plan (and Where Taylor Swift Fits In) encourage Democrats to get Taylor Swift endorsement and use to campaign on abortion.

What is ridiculous that 18% of voters could vote for whoever Taylor Swift endorse according to Paul Joseph Watson video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKVTsNrHfE0 --Alex Kosh (talk) 20:11, January 29, 2024 (EST)

  • Taylor Swift admits George Soros is one of her owners.
    In 2018, Swift endorsed Bredesen against Blackburn as U.S. senator from Tennessee. The endorsement was widely publicized, but Blackburn won 55-44. According to Wikipedia's graph, there was no signification shift after the endorsement. Now that Swift is preparing to endorse Biden, she is an electoral juggernaut? I am not seeing it. Swift is certainly getting plenty of publicity out of this gimmick. Update. Taylor's politics revolves around LGBT stuff. Neither Pew nor AP-NORC are polling on this issue, so I doubt that it is election critical. PeterKa (talk) 08:55, February 2, 2024 (EST)
Thanks for your insights, Peter and Alex, as always! My opinion is that the Super Bowl should be boycotted this year for promoting gambling, the liberal agenda, Taylor Swift's liberal claptrap. I won't be surprised if Trumps says he's not watching it this year.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 03:27, February 3, 2024 (EST)
I don't follow football all that much, but a friend of mine who does told me that ever since Taylor Swift began dating Travis Kelce, the NFL appears to have been rigging every Chiefs game in their favor using biased referees. The reason they're (supposedly) doing that is because they see Swift's presence at Chiefs games as a tool they could use to boost viewership ratings, and thus make more money. And in order to reap the maximum possible benefits from such a scheme they would have to rig the games to make sure the Chiefs at minimum make it to the Super Bowl. Them winning the Super Bowl would be a bonus, but not a requirement.
For me, that alone would be enough to warrant a boycott. I mean, why waste time watching what is essentially a fake Super Bowl where one of the teams made it that far by cheating?--Geopolitician (talk) 00:38, February 5, 2024 (EST)

Trump: Dictator Comments ‘Said in Jest,’ ‘We Were Having Fun’

See here. Like that wasn't obvious before. On another note, I don't think he went far enough. If I were him, I would've pointed out that Washington establishment used to love Republican presidents who govern like a dictator, and that they even built a memorial to one of them.--Geopolitician (talk) 00:53, February 5, 2024 (EST)

Notice how all the Supercarriers are named after Republican presidents? Why is that? Even when Dems control all three branches of government (House, Senate, and White House as AOC says) they keep up funding and don't start a new program named after Democrat presidents.
The answer is, this gives insight into how the Senate works. Only now, as Supercarriers verge on extinction in modern warfare, the GOP voter base needs to smarten up as their name has been used by globalist warmongers. RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 06:41, February 5, 2024 (EST)

That's what martial law does - it automatically turns the commander-in-chief into a dictator. The term is somewhat abused today. In Roman times, the dictator was viewed as a national savior. And since governments derive their just powers by the consent of the governed, we have granted all presidents the option to declare martial law at his discretion and seize absolute power.

Incident in Jordan. Who done it?

US bases in ME.PNG

What are the chances that Biden's claim that Iranian proxies killed 3 American troops and injured 25 others is yet another lie?--Geopolitician (talk) 18:43, January 28, 2024 (EST)

Iranian proxies who?
Let's look at the logic: If Biden wants to hold Iran responsible for allowing proxies to attack Americans soldiers, the US will get nuked for arming, training, and funding Ukrainian proxies, not to mention providing intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance for murder and terrorist attacks on Russians, both in Ukraine, and Russian civilians in Russia proper.
"Bu bu but Rob, we're the good guys,..." RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 20:39, January 28, 2024 (EST)
Oh, and Putin's a corrupt kleptocrat, so we need to nuke 145 million Russians along with Iran (but maybe 175 million Americans might survive on a contaminated planet. Seriously, this is the insane garbage you can find in Conservapedia Essay space). RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 20:55, January 28, 2024 (EST)
Of course we shouldn't trust everything Biden says. But in this case, Islamic Republic of Iran's proxy claimed responsibility. "The Islamic Resistance in Iraq, an umbrella organization of hardline Iran-backed militant groups, claimed attacks on three bases, including one on the Jordan-Syria border.[4]. BTW Nikki's rhetoric of lumping Putin and Iran isn't helpful. Though they're allies of convenience so far. Mixing Ukraine war with Gaza isn't right.Telling (talk)
Putin's just PO'd cause Biden stole the $163,000 a month that was being paid to other Russian kleptocrats. RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 21:02, January 28, 2024 (EST)
Also re Geopolitician's question. Trump also realizes Itan did attack .[5]. My hope is that there is NO 'military' strike inside Iran - but on its militias-proxies. And if there is a decision to attack inside Iran, I hope it's only on equipment / destroying weapons, etc..Telling (talk) 21:41, January 28, 2024 (EST)
Iran equips hovercraft with long range (1,000 km) missiles. If you hit Iran, Iran will start taking out US warships. Yes, they have that capability to take out warships in Operation Prosperity Guardian.
Biden will probably take the bait.
And Larry Johnson's probably right, after 2 years we've yet to see a "drone" injure 25 people. likely a missile (which surely the Pentagon/White House know but are lying about for propaganda purposes, to build public support, as if war with Iran will be easy). RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 21:49, January 28, 2024 (EST)
Targetting ONLY drones manufacturing/capability is probably the measured response. Not attacking lives inside Iran.Telling (talk) 15:20, January 29, 2024 (EST)
Unfortuneately, it probably wasn't a drone. All US bases in the ME are within precision guided missile attack from Iran. RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 15:42, January 29, 2024 (EST)
Unfortunealtely again, we have a population in the United States that's still living in the 1990s vis-a-vis US and potential adversaries military capabilities (in the case of Biden, make that the 1960s). Everybody today has precision guided technology, night vision equipment (the Russians just unveiled their thermo-insulated stealth clothing that defeats ultraviolet thermo-imaging night vision equipment), satellite surveillance, etc. etc.
After two years in Ukraine, the US still thinks it can win wars with propaganda alone. It can't. RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 15:52, January 29, 2024 (EST)

The Islamic Resistance in Iraq ("IRI") has claimed responsibility for the attack, while Tehran has denied involvement and insists that IRI acted on its own.[6][7] Meanwhile, at least one of the affiliates of IRI, Kataib Hezbollah, has announced that it is suspending attacks on American forces. Perhaps Tehran told them to knock it off?[8]--Geopolitician (talk) 22:29, January 30, 2024 (EST)

Hopefully, Biden will do some military action that amounts to kicking the dog so he can make a political ad touting his brilliant, bold leadership in the face of adversity. That's our hope for the best case scenario right now.
A missile attack on Iran proper would basically be a test firing of Iran's missile defense system. It will only result in closer technology sharing between Russia and Iran of Russia's electronic warfare systems. Ask NATO & Kyiv how that worked out. Alternatively, since the sinking of the Moskva we've been anticipating an attack on US satellites. An attack on Iran could escalate that far much quicker.
And it's pretty obvious the US has inferior electronic warfare missile defense systems allegedly "protecting" US military personnel and bases in the Middle East and worldwide.
The Iron Dome system for example, has a finite number of missiles and is designed to defend against homemade missiles from Lebanon; it won't survive an overwhelming barrage of ballistic missiles. And neither carrier-based, ground or air launched US missiles can sufficiently degrade Iran's offensive missile capabilities. RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 23:43, January 29, 2024 (EST)
It should be targeted at drones capability.Telling (talk) 00:17, January 30, 2024 (EST)
This attack was bait. Do you think the US can penetrate Iran's electronic warfare systems to sufficiently degrade drone factories, in either Iraq or Iran? RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 00:22, January 30, 2024 (EST)
I hope the US can penetrate, if not, we are in deep trouble. But again, it has to be focused on this technology, any loss of lives are counter productive, as of now IMHO. But to attack inside Iran (which some push) without this objective is not a good idea. But not to do anything - that opinion, no expert on any party holds, ( even if it was bait, the US has no choice, as this low meeky weakness invites more and even stepping up by the Mullah regime). And if hacking drone factories can do it, without firing missiles that would be awesome.Telling (talk) 00:37, January 30, 2024 (EST)
Apparantly, the US wants to test Iran's missile defense capabilities (in much the same way NATO/Ukraine has been constantly probing Russian capabilities with attacks on Crimea). Iran does have the ability to shoot down a $135 million Reaper drone.
(Thus discussion is getting a bit technical cause we must distinguish between offensive and defensive missile capabilities. Defensive missile capabilities = the ability to shoot down a bullet with a bullet).
The immediate problem is, American troops on land and at sea are extremely vulnerable because of inferior missile defense and electronic warfare capabilities. RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 00:39, January 30, 2024 (EST)
I hear what you're saying. Interesting.Telling (talk)
Conclusion: The Administration is working hard to keep its relationship with Iraq and protect Iran, holding back information that would directly implicate either. This compromises American forces in Iraq, Syria, and Jordan in two ways.

First, US bases are poorly defended and not strongly fortified, meaning they are relatively easy to attack with drones, mortars, rockets, and missiles. As they have been repeatedly....

RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 20:44, February 1, 2024 (EST)
Update: Initially there was some confusion. Some said the attack actually occurred in Syria, but the Pentagon didn't want to admit it cause the troops are there illegally, without the government of Syria or Congressional authorization. So they said it was in Jordan. Now Larry Johnson updates and says it was in Jordan, but the government of Jordan is PO'd cause they didn't want it revealed to the world they consented to a US base in Jordan. [10]
Then again, Johnson could be wrong. RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 00:57, January 30, 2024 (EST)
Most Arab-Jordanians are Arab "Palestinian" by origin. It was a strategic move by Iran given the emotions...Telling (talk) 01:23, January 30, 2024 (EST)
Jordan may not be too keen on being drawn into war against Iran. So the question is, Will a retaliatory strike lead to further escalations? Come November election day, we'll still be at war with Iran. RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 02:23, January 30, 2024 (EST)
Little Jordan has no say in it. Iran is at war with us dince 1979 (including in Latin America), but not 'hot war' before Iraqi militias sent by Iran two decades ago and not so out in the open as now. But Biden is of course only focused on his campaign (- which is why he gave the Arab lobby the bone of targeting a few "settlers" at the same day he meets Michigan Arabs.. We only hope he doesn't do irrational things such as attacking masses of people instead of facilities. There is a clever way how to attack without giving the excuse for Iran to step up levels.21:06, February 1, 2024 (EST)Telling (talk)

Iranian Islamic proxies

What do you think of this guy's take on the Axis of Resistance? RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 22:08, February 1, 2024 (EST)

I just began reading it, the term "occupation" isn't really the point, it's more eradicating the 'other' that in their view do not belong in their region it is very islamism vs dhimmis (who posses power) - then they add the Jerusalem issue which the infamous Grand Mufti made it an explosive ppint since the 1920s. For sure, the head of the snake needs to get a slap but very carefully done, in order not to give an excuse. Despite "layers" this substack guy lays out, in one order, the mullahcracy can control / contain ALL "resitance" groups. (For instance, the Gaza (Iranian) front - True, PIJ is more directly under Iran, but Iran can contain Hamas too.) An American suggested to hit Iranian interests on Oct 7 2023 BEFORE IDF enters Gaza. It's a bit late now. At least one of the Islamic Republic frontsis weaker, the Syrian IRAN IRGC is running scared because of IDF.Telling (talk) 15:25, February 2, 2024 (EST)
Solemeini is the guy who thought up this whole strategy with the Axis of Resistance, so killing him didn't make a difference. The plan went forward anyway. 16:28, February 2, 2024 (EST)
Killing Solemeini made a military aparatus weakening it is why the Islamists were so angry. Not a policy difference. And he was the main pusher on Iraqi proxies but Lebanese Hezbollah and Gaza's PIJ were long Iranian hands before him. BTW, now, the US did a first retaliatory anti-Iranian strike on Syria soil. I suspect, there will be a campaign to weaken Iranian proxies. Telling (talk) 18:34, February 2, 2024 (EST)

It's good for the warmonger lobby. But apparently neither Iran nor the American people want a direct confrontation with the US. The Biden/neocon argument that it's OK for the US to use proxies but nobody else can doesn't hold water. RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 19:23, February 4, 2024 (EST)
Warmogerlobby would have us strike inside Iran CURRENTLY which is dangerous... Unless Iran steps up level. (I also don't like when Nikki lumps Russia and Iran with the M.E. war. Though they're linked out of convenience, still, the US should not place them as a block which will then link them even deeper). On the other hand, we can not ve silence which is to invite more aggression from the head of the snake who operates in Latin America, Middle-east and beyond...Telling (talk) 13:24, February 5, 2024 (EST)

Modern drone warfare

Modern frontline combat is drone warfare, and Ukraine is the proving ground. Now it's been said, "NATO/Ukraine has the qualitative edge, while Russia has the quantitative edge" (deja vu). Sure, NATO/Ukraine is producing evermore sophisticated, technologically "advanced" drones, but it can't produce in quantity the number Russia is capable of. And it cannot prevent Russia from acquiring and copying those "technological improvements" (without Russia spending a dime on research and development), and reproducing the improved version in far superior numbers than NATO/Ukraine is capable of.

"I'm going to be president of everybody whether they live in a red state or a green state." That's how Joe Biden started this historic press conference. It went downhill from there.
Okay, we all mix up words and names from time to time. Here is the most revealing part of the press conference: He pulled out a rosary at one point. It was a prop for a story he was going to tell to show how great his memory still was. Then he forgot the story and went to questions.
Why did Biden illegally retain classified documents? These documents established that he was already advocating a withdrawal from Afghanistan as early as 2009 when he was vice president. He showed them to his ghost writer to show what a brilliant strategist he was. That is to say, Biden withdrew from Afghanistan to vindicate a proposal that had been near and dear to him when he was vice president, but was rejected by Obama. When the withdrawal proved to be a disaster, then it was all the fault of a deal that Trump had made with the Taliban. The existence of these documents became inconvenient. See "The Most Catastrophic Press Conference of ALL TIME" by Ben Shapiro. PeterKa (talk) 19:27, February 10, 2024 (EST)
The political betting markets data indicates that Biden still retains a 30% chance of winning the presidency in 2024.[13] Twenty years ago, who would have predicted a man with marked cognitive decline would have such high odds of winning the presidency?

Statistically speaking, the data compiled by Electionbettingodds.com has a great track record in terms of reliability: Election Betting Odds FAQ.
Furthermore, some political forecasters are better than others and actively try to improve their skills using sound forecasting principles: Expert Political Judgment: How Good Is It? How Can We Know? | Philip Tetlock and Expert Political Judgment: How Good Is It? How Can We Know? by Philip E. Tetlock, Princeton University Press; New Ed edition (August 20, 2006). So for those people, their odds may be greater of winning than merely a 50/50 chance.
Also, individuals who work together using sound forecasting principles increase their forecasting ability (See: The Peculiar Blindness of Experts). Conservative (talk) 02:26, February 11, 2024 (EST)
We've been over this before. Still pitching Hillary Clinton, huh? From your own FAQ: "But betting odds aren't perfect. It has occasionally been very wrong, such as in 2016, when it gave Trump a 20% chance, and yet he won." Maybe Trump voters aren't idiots who gamble. RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 14:47, February 11, 2024 (EST)
Sometimes events with 20% chance of happening occur. However, there are statistical tests that can be given to the test the reliability of a set of forecasts and that has been done with electionbettingodds.com and it has a high degree of reliability. For example, I cite this as an example that forecast systems can be tested for reliability: Testing the reliability of forecasting systems. Conservative (talk) 17:08, February 11, 2024 (EST)

I don't think you understand how betting odds are made. Betting odds are not made by "forecasters". Betting odds are created by the bettors themselves. An 80% chance means, for example, in a $10,000 betting pool, $8,000 is laid on Hillary Clinton and $2,000 on Donald Trump. Furthermore, $8,000 could have been laid out by ONE bettor, and $2,000 by 2,000 individual bettors. With 9 months to go before the election, I hope this is the last time you troll this talk page with nonsense and crap about the accuracy or validity of election betting odds.

  • Andrew McCarthy in NR makes a great point. If Trump gets prosecuted for obstructing investigators and Biden gets off for cooperating with them, what about Hillary? She had her lawyers smash cell phones with hammers. As for the Hur report, McCarthy calls it "flawed — at least if it is meant as a justification for not indicting the president; if it is meant as a predicate for invoking the 25th Amendment, it is quite well done."
  • Of course, the real reason not to indict Biden is that no DC jury will convict a Democrat. We need to start videotaping trials so that they can be held in one location and then shown to a random, untainted jury in another part of the country.
  • This naturally leads to the question of, what is going on in Garland's DOJ? Is he trying to get Biden removed from office? When Garland appointed Hur in January 2023, was he already plotting against Biden? If so, I suggest that indictments for Hunter are next on the menu. PeterKa (talk) 01:46, February 11, 2024 (EST)

Knives out for Merrick Garland

How can Joe Biden think that winning the election is even possible after the Robert Hur report and that press-conference-from-hell? Esquire thinks Attorney General Merrick Garland needs to be replaced with a "wartime consigliere," like in The Godfather.

In oral arguments on the Colorado case, even liberal Justice Elena Kagan acknowledged that the eligibility of a presidential candidate "sounds awfully national to me" and thus outside of Colorado's jurisdiction. But what if Donald Trump is convicted of insurrection in federal court? If they can find a federal judge somewhere who will do it just before the election, they just might be able to take Trump off the ballot.

So why hasn't the Department of Justice done this already? IMO, Garland is this election cycle's James Comey. Obama has assigned Garland to get Biden out of the way, just as he assigned Comey to get Hillary out of the way in 2016. Obama wants to be leader of the opposition again, the guy planning the BLM riots. PeterKa (talk) 18:13, February 12, 2024 (EST)

Mark Steyn loses climate libel suit

After twelve years of litigation, a court in the District of Columbia has found columnist Mark Steyn libel for $1 million after he compared climate charlatan Michael Mann to convicted child molester and football coach Jerry Sandusky, or at least that's how the mainstream media is reporting it. This analogy was certainly in bad taste, but that isn't a basis for a legal case. After all, everyone and his brother has been compared to Adolf Hitler at some point. Although no one involved in the case lives in DC, Mann filed his case there to take advantage of the District's notoriously partisan courts.

The legal basis for the suit is actually that Steyn referred to Mann's hockey stick graph as "fraudulent":

"Michael Mann’s hockeystick graph was wildly different from hundreds of studies of other studies and instantly became the pet graph of the IPCC. It used the wrong proxy, the wrong tree, and the wrong type of averaging. Whole books were written on how bad it was. But when Mark Steyn called it fraudulent Mann sued," according to blogger Jo Nova.

Perhaps journalists have been tossing around the word fraudulent far too freely and its time to crack down. Could the MSM follow a rule under which no one can be called a fraud unless he has been convicted of fraud?

There is reason to believe that the "fraudulent" angle is just a pretext as well. Although Mann suffered no actual damages, his lawyer asked for punitive damages to deter "climate deniers." In other words, the ruling treats conservative politics as a form of malicious behavior. PeterKa (talk) 22:14, February 15, 2024 (EST)

On the bright side, the appeals court will almost certainly reduce the amount of the award. If it rules that punitive damages can be no more than five times actual damages, Mann takes home a total of $6. In addition, there is a well-known case called New York Times v. Sullivan (1964) which limits the ability of public figures to sue for libel. This precedent has already been used to absolve National Review, Steyn's publisher. Ironically, Steyn separated his case from NR's so that it could be decided more quickly. Yet it has taken longer.
None of the media commentary focuses on Steyn's use of the word "fraudulent," although one might think that this issue would be worth a mention. Steyn certainly isn't the only writer who uses this word in a nonlegal way. Instead, the commentary portrays "scientists" as a victim class. The gist of it seems to be people like Mann should be above criticism. Although a thousand headlines proclaim him to be a "climate scientist," Mann's PhD is in geology and geophysics.

Biden's poll numbers

We've had a week to process the special counsel's revelation that Joe Biden is a vegetable -- and it turns out that the country is just fine with it. His net favorable rating is at -15.6 today, with no significant movement in the last two weeks. Not only that, but Biden polls better against Trump than any other Democrat, according to Emerson. Here is a clip that's been doing the rounds recently:

Joe: Do want to get a picture in front?
Jill: We already did.
Joe: Oh

This is a guy with the memory of a moth.

If you compare Biden today to a video of Biden from five years ago, the decline in his mental capabilities is quite dramatic. He is going to be president five years from now? The liberal media apparently thinks so. They are back to cheerleading for him, while labeling anyone who suggests that he might drop out as a conspiracy theorist. PeterKa (talk) 04:18, February 17, 2024 (EST)

Biden has been falling down, being wandering around stages and not able to talk well for a while. The Special Counsel didn't make any startling revelation about Biden's cognitive abilities.

Nate Silver has gone through the polling data state by state: "So it’s no longer safe to ignore that Biden has consistently trailed Trump in polls both nationally and (more importantly) in swing states. Or that Biden’s approval rating is just 39 percent and shows no signs of improvement, well below the threshold that would ordinarily make a president a favorite for re-election."

Trump doesn't need DeSantis to carry Florida, and DeSantis brings little on a national scale. (It isn't like DeSantis supporters would defect to Biden, Kamala, or Michael Robinson. DeSantis was always Trump Lite). RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 16:03, February 23, 2024 (EST)

Hunter Biden "has never traveled to Ukraine.”

FBI informant Alexander Smirnov could not have known about an alleged $10 million bribe made to the Bidens because Hunter "has never traveled to Ukraine," according to a jaw-dropping DOJ court filing. The MSM has exploded with stories claiming that the Bidens are now vindicated. I guess I'm the one who has to point this out: Hunter got a high paying, no-show job at a Ukrainian company without ever visiting Ukraine. Is that just part of the deal when you're the vice president's son? See "Paid FBI informant accused of fabricating Biden bribery allegation received another debunked Hunter tip — this time from Russia: court docs." PeterKa (talk) 00:15, February 22, 2024 (EST)

So many people lied during the Trump impeachments. How did Eric Ciaramella get to be designated a whisleblower? Not by telling the truth.
Is there any way this ends well? "CPAC: Jim Jordan says whistleblower from Fani Willis' office talking to his committee."
Jason Goodman & Mike Stranahan interviewed Telizhenko the other day. [26] Teleizhenko sat in the January 2016 White House meeting with Ciaramella when Ukrainian officials were instructed to end the investigation into Hunter & Burisma, and open investigations into Trump & Manafort. Stranahan is a walking encyclopedia on the events surrounding Ukraine and Russiagate in the early days (he's been destroying too many braincells lately since he got divorced & fired from Sputnik due to sanctions).

The Smirnov indictment is out and it looks an awful lot like entrapment. Smirnov had been considered a reliable informant for many years. The FBI agents never challenged him on anything. They just let him ramble until he said something that they could treat as incriminating. It's yet another story to illustrate the "Don't talk to cops" principle. According to the indictment, Smirnov claimed that Hunter has visited the Premier Palace Hotel in Kyiv many times. This, they claim, is untrue, per statement in the OP. See the always inciteful Andrew McCarthy. PeterKa (talk) 19:02, February 24, 2024 (EST)
We've been over this in the Mike Flynn case. You say to an FBI agent, "Nice day", and if there is a cloud in the sky they will charge you with lying. RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 19:26, February 24, 2024 (EST)
True story: The FBI stopped a guy in New York and asked him his name. The Smart A said, "Maragaret Thatcher". Since they had nothing else on him, they charged him with lying to the FBI. Federal courts upheld the verdict and conviction. RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 19:30, February 24, 2024 (EST)

81 years without a joke. Why does he have to start now?

"No joke. No joke," Biden is always reassuring us. Now he has fallen off the wagon: "Biden, 81, says the key to his marriage is 'good sex': How Joe infuriates Jill, his wife of 47 years, with VERY risqué joke to staff about their private life (even though they aren't shy about PDA)" This is one terrible joke. Somebody make him stop. Bring back the "No jokes" policy if you have to. PeterKa (talk) 07:15, February 24, 2024 (EST)

Senator McCarthy at Librivox

Just thought I would let everybody know, I'm sure there will be at least one person around here who might find this useful. We made a discovery a few months back that the works of Joseph McCarthy are in the public domain. Didn't take long to initiate the work and now the work is completed. The book written by McCarthy we selected to elevate into an audio book for the purpose of greater education is America's Retreat from Victory: The Story of George Catlett Marshall, and it is both high quality audio and it is read at a good pace. It is easy to follow while listening, but the best part is that the audio book is free and open source in the public domain so it can be shared as many times and there are no strings attached. And I wanted to add, I wasn't the reader on this one. [27] Progressingamerica (talk) 22:48, February 24, 2024 (EST)

Who Lost China? Probably the best narrative setting the record straight. Marshall wasn't a communist or a traitor; he was just naive and surrounded himself with communist advisors (kinda like Henry Wallace). RobSZelensky didn't kill himself 00:05, February 25, 2024 (EST)
At the end of World War II in August 1945, the Soviets and the CCP controlled Manchuria and much of North China. Stalin was determined to keep these conquests. The North was already a lost cause when Marshall arrived in China in December 1945. The U.S. and the Chinese Nationalists should have focused their efforts on holding territory south of the Yangtze. The Nationalist capital was Nanjing, which itself is in the South.
In late 1948, the Nationalists required everyone to convert their valuables to worthless "gold yuan." China's middle class had been the party's base of support. Now it was being scammed so that the KMT could grab all it could and flee to Taiwan. The bloodiest battle of the Chinese Civil War was the Huaihai campaign of November 1948 to January 1949. This was a battle for Beijing. After this battle, the Communists advanced southward almost without opposition.
The various Chinese armies used German ammunition. The U.S. could have sent a lot more of this to China if there had been better coordination. The British put their captured German ammo on Helgoland and blew it up in a 3.2 kiloton explosion in April 1947 called "Operation Big Bang." PeterKa (talk) 01:43, February 25, 2024 (EST)
The above linked article goes into how, after the Japanese surrender, Soviet occupiers armed Mao's forces with captured Japanese weapons to fight the US-backed Chiang Kai-shek forces. Marshall was Army chief-of-staff at the time. (Incidentally, the Russian Federation, as the successor regime of the USSR, recently reminded the Japanese government that there has never been a formal peace treaty signed with Japan since the USSR declared war in August 1945 and technically a state of war still exists).

Christian nationalism

I have no idea what it is either. But I can't resist a dumb joke: "America is facing a threat of biblical proportion: The rise of Christian nationalism". Despite the over-the-top headline, the article itself is Very Serious. PeterKa (talk) 08:57, February 25, 2024 (EST)

"The one thing that unites them as Christian nationalists — not Christians by the way, because Christian nationalists is very different — is that they believe that our rights as Americans, as all human beings, don’t come from any earthly authority; they don’t come from Congress; they don’t come from the Supreme Court — they come from God,” according to Politico reporter Heidi Przybyla. Ummm, has she taken a look at the Declaration of Independence? The takeaway of this article seems to be that a "Christian nationalist" is what we used to call a Christian.
