Has anyone seen this?


Scientists say they have discovered why people voted for Donald Trump and Brexit.
Psychologists and political scientists at the universities of Kent, Warsaw and Maryland say voters are more likely to opt fro populist ideologies when they feel disadvantaged.
These could be ideas that speak to the average person, such as those promised by the US president and campaigners who want the UK to leave the European Union.

That tweet is proof that someone should shut the strawberry float up because they don't have a clue what specific words mean.

I'm starting to hate terminology like this. It just becomes a bunch of words and I heavily doubt that the person using them has a full understanding of them.

It’s a very easy thing to do. There’s no need to actually spend time and money on sorting out the underlying problems, just blame the newcomers.

It's also a super loose definition of populist, which the journal defines as pretty much any platform that promises major change.

Like no gooseberry fool stuff is popular if the only political stance you don't consider populism is upholding the status quo

So after boasting that he was going to release them, even though they were due for release anyway, he ended up blocking the full release.

Is there anything this man doesn’t lie about? :lol:

He's a total moron for leading people on. They were never going to be able to release everything to the public.

In this video Donald Trump tells some kids in Halloween garb 'at least you don't have a weight problem' as he hands out sweets and then starts talking about the media and the press...

Guys! :shock:

First charges filed in Mueller investigation

A federal grand jury in Washington, DC, on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources briefed on the matter.

The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said. It is unclear what the charges are.

A spokesman for the special counsel's office declined to comment.

Mueller was appointed in May to lead the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Under the regulations governing special counsel investigations, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has oversight over the Russia investigation, would have been made aware of any charges before they were taken before the grand jury for approval, according to people familiar with the matter.

I'm sure Trump will hand out pardons, unless the crimes are state, not federal.

He can't pardon crimes at state level. Presumably that's why they are prosecuting at state level.
