Will you stop spreading this tired bit of propaganda? He merely wants to stop the flow of people from Muslim countries _with may of which we're de-facto at war_, and then only until appropriate vetting procedures are established. This never was about a blanket "Muslim" ban.

Can you guys and galls get it through your thick skulls that letting in military-age men of an uncertain background from the countries where radical Islam is a dominant ideology is an absolutely idiotic thing to do? What's so bad about figuring out how to make sure you're not letting in an ISIS or Al Quaeda operative?

They gave it a bare minimum of coverage. As an example: most people don't know about wikileaks revelations, about immunity deals, about lying to the FBI, about destruction of evidence. Why is it that some dude gets prison time for merely taking a picture in the vicinity of something classified, yet HRC deliberately mishandles top secret info and gets off scot free?

China has eclipsed the US in gaming the citation metrics. Most of the seminal papers in AI are either US or Canadian. Nearly all of the new exciting ones are from the US, Canada or the UK (DeepMind in particular is on fire right now). You can publish a ton and not make a difference. Like it or not, only maybe 2-3 dozen papers really matter each year.
