Hypothetical situation: You are forced to play Russian roulette.

You can pick the pistol with all of the chambers loaded (Clinton).
Or you pick the one with only half of the chambers loaded (Trump).

Which one makes more sense to pick? Hint: One of those situations has a very predictable outcome, if you're into predictability.

Submission + - SPAM: Attempts to Frame Assange as a Pedophile and Russian spy 1

Okian Warrior writes: Earlier today the website DailyKos reported on a smear campaign plot to falsely accuse Julian Assange of pedophilia. An unknown entity posing as an internet dating agency prepared an elaborate plot to falsely claim that Julian Assange received US$1M from the Russian government and a second plot to frame him sexually molesting an eight year old girl.

Here is the description of the plot from Mr Assange’s legal team.

Submission + - Democrat Operatives Caused Violence at Trump Rallies, Framed Sanders Supporters (youtube.com) 15

Xenographic writes: A new video has come out detailing how Democratic operatives created violence at Trump rallies. You may remember that they then framed Sanders supporters for those protests. This video is notable because one of the operatives, Zulema Rodriguez, can be identified in videos of the Arizona protests at 17:35 in this independent video as well as at 10:30 in the first video link. Furthermore, you look at the FEC records of disbursements to her and see that she was paid by MoveOn.org. Finally, this again can be corroborated with the Wikileaks dump, specifically this email. For those too lazy to browse all the links, you can see Zulema's appearance in both videos in this image and note that it's the same person down to the tiny mole on her chest.

The only reason they can predict it, is because they're causing it through acts like paying people to attend protests and start riots, pushing laws that favor small minority groups over the majority, pushing laws that remove power from the people and transfer it to the government, vindictively prosecuting regular people while ignoring crimes by their own, and so on.

They've been pulling this social upheaval crap in foreign countries for decades, now they're doing it here. A public divided won't stand up to the government. The government views the public as an enemy now. The only thing we're good for is paying taxes, believing/pushing their agendas, and dying in their for-profit wars.

Aw man, I liked this guy too. Until I saw that video.. What a fucking idiot.

"How's that supposed to work? Are they supposed to be dragged from their homes..?"

Uh, yes. That's how it would work for me or anyone else if we were wanted for a crime and refused to cooperate. We'd be dragged from our homes. Now why are a specific group of people supposed to be treated differently?

This clown either drank the PC kool-aid, or he's owned, just like the majority of them.

Thanks for the link, btw.

There was over 70% represented in the vote. That's a huge turnout. What % was required for them to get into the EU, btw?

If people treated their vote as a joke, then they don't deserve a re-vote. Simple as that.

In the end, this petition is just more petulant crying. "Waahhhhhh, I don't like the result and want another another vote!! And another. And another.. Until I get MY way!" If it had turned out the other way, the remain side would be saying the same thing to the Brexit side: Too fucking bad.

Probably because the "experts" have been so completely clueless over and over again that it's time to give your head a shake and stop listening to them.

Look at all the so-called experts that advise on the economy, such as Greenspan, Bernanke, and Yellen. How's that going? Not so fucking well, that's how.
Experts said there was no housing bubble.
Experts said that the (non-existant) housing bubble was contained and wouldn't spread into the rest of the economy.
Experts said Greece wasn't a problem.
Experts said that just another IMF loan and some austerity and the problem would be fixed.
Experts said that "when it becomes serious, you have to lie."

The MP that said it was time to stop listening to these kinds of experts is the kind that actually has a chance at running things properly.
