Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, June 16, 2019

This week we watched an unusual spectacle. The foreign minister of Germany, one of the United States' closest allies, went to Tehran and announced that a European payment system, designed as an alternative to the dollar-based one, would soon be ready

Your warnings are pointless Fareed.

America is going down a path of self-destruction.

The 21st century is going to be China's century, there's no two ways about it.

America is crumbling, not just its airports and roads, but also its political system and institutions.

China has a 50 year plan for its growth.

Meanwhile America can't even build a single high-speed train.

This country is a joke.


I couldn't of said it better myself.

This doesn't bode well for Trump's war plans.

He better destroy Iran before any deals can be implemented.

Meanwhile, republicans are crowing about how well our inflated economy is doing.

They're the most shortsighted, greedy people alive.

This is what Trumpers want.
It's sort of like, they voted for Atlas Shrugged.
They want the US to stand down our leadership position in the world, because it costs too much in taxes, and it makes our country too attractive to immigrants.

Oh please ... spare me the hyperbole.

You guys are flipping out over anything Trump does to show dominance, yet loved Obamas/Clintons "smart power" BS, which destroyed Libya, Syria, and Honduras, allowed Putin to take Crimea, send tax payer money to interfere with Israeli elections.

You got a lot of nerve for being idiots.

I agree with the idea of the article. We've united the entire planet against us at a time we are weaker than ever. They have obviously decided to take our offer of walking away from the table and making their own system. Ooops.

I will add this:

This is the punishment we get for being bigots.

To believe we are better than anyone just because of the flag we fly under.

To believe others are not human and not capable.

To attack our own citizens who don't fit the mold, but do contribute to our strength.

We are lost.

It's not a Trump thing though he is making it worse.

It is a 1% thing. Corporate America is killing the US lead in the world because they want more and more quarterly profits. They have sold our manufacturing and textile base over to China.

So, Boaz hates all the rights he didn't have before the 1960's?

The right to live as a black man with equal rights in
The right to vote without jumping through hoops
The right to serve as an officer in the military
The right to buy a home where he wants to
The right to live in North Carolina without fear of being lynched
The right to drink out of any drinking fountain or be served in any restaurant
And many, many more.

All thanks to the 'liberals' he so willingly disparages for making the life he lives today even possible.

What an ungrateful, deranged twerp

#32 | Posted by boaz, Why not just say the truth, Identity politics IS the new racism, where everyone has more power and status than straight white men. That is an artificial construct. Straight white men have the money, the guns, the skills and training and are the military and police. Continue to provoke them at your peril. Are you sure you want to fight them? Have another civil war? I did a little research, the left loses every time. In every conceivable situation they win. The winners determine who the traitors are.

Without genocide and slavery, there would be no United States. It is baked into the Constitution as originally adopted (without the 13th, 14th, 15th amendments, and it took a civil war to get that). Yes, America is all about race, always has been, and it needs to come to terms with the consequeces of that.

So which party was it that started locking up kids' parents for smoking weed and tearing apart their nuclear families?

Furthermore, ANY WOES link back to liberal culture destruction?
So link these woes to liberal cultural destruction: Health care costs, massive income inequality, offshoring of jobs, environmental destruction, corrupt campaign finance, veterans medical care, mass budget shortfalls, toxic water from the faucets, neverending wars....

Sorry those all link back to corporate capture of government and the rich sucking up all the resources in society.

"Straight white men" is an identity too.
It's amazing how people think the concept of "identity politics" only applies to marginalized groups.
It's like they've never heard of Germany, 1933-1945.

Boaz thinks people should get locked up for smoking weed.
That way, it's the weed smokers who destroyed their own families.

Ah yes, the 60s, when the top marginal Federal income tax rate dropped from 91%, to 77%, then 70%.
Our country began to financially unravel, and now it's about 1.5 years worth of GDP in debt.

Thank you for mentioning Sodom and Gomorrah.

Were not Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed by The Almighty Gawd because They "were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before Me."

You know... just like Deplorable (and detestable) Trumpsters are doing before Him today?

Take heed boazo. You arrogant and overfed and you do not help the poor and needy...and you have done detestable things before Him (probably every night!).

But Trump isn't the beginning of the fall. While Presidents past 4 or 8 years, the Congress has had a greater affect on our Nation's success and failure.

We elect our Congress. Trump is a penny to the quarters. We are the failure. Congress' ratings are how low? Yet, individually, they must be absolutely wonderful as voters keep up the self inflicted wounds.

Trump, Obama, Clinton, Bush,...all minor players in a Congress that is the major fault of our public representation.

Why are we failing? How long has this ride been going? There are Congressmen that have been there through it all.
