You may need to calm yourself as it affects your coherence and writing.



If you think this is an echo-chamber you did not watch or watched without paying attention. They actually disagree with each other on various topics right in this video.
If you still think they represent some intellectual monolith vastly different from yours, would not that represent an opposing view worthy of exploring?


Dave Rubin has been an echo chamber for the "I hate the left crowd" for a while. I've watched this video before, and his one to one interviews with the guys there . They are on the same page (Except for weinstein but not by much). Rubin is really clueless about a lot of issues (USPS...etc)


Peterson is a constant "Oh i didn't say that" so it is difficult to pinpoint in which way you can represent an opposing view when whatever you pin him on he can tell " oh i didn't say that"


Shapiro seems to have ducked debates vs left people last year on politicon. (not that it matters much, but it is noteworthy for those "free exchange of ideas" mantras they spout)


I've payed attention enough to some of these guys. their results have not bode well. And even if they had, that does not stop the Rubin's report from being an echo chamber for the righ.T,where the guests remain unchallenged for hours.


Your time is better spent listening to Joe Rogan's podcast.

Your right. It seems this info, especially concerning children, is difficult to find in a nice chart. My original source concerning the FBI stats was revisited and I found it to not be reliable. I apologize. That said, there has been a huge upswing in states like California and Texas and some high profile people are getting arrested so there is some truth to it. The owner of the New England Patriots was just arrested the other day when he visited a "day spa" that was under investigation for possible trafficking.


Odd that the former owner of that day spa was offering direct access to Trump at his golf resort.


I am glad you retracted, but please don't quasi- "motte and bailey" us . a claimed momentary upswing does not mean anything without data that is related to actual government work.


enjoy your soup.

Fair enough, would you be so kind to post a better video? Perhaps liberal, 'progressive' intellectual making a logical, empirical case for his ideas? Or an interesting debate that I can learn from?

P.S. I do listen to Rogan sometimes, but his podcast topically is all over the place (too much useless noise produced solely for revenue). A few intellectuals he had on his program have been rambling on without a check from him. It gets tiresome quickly, when the host has no clue.
Thank you.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Speaking of Joe Rogan (not a fan, impartial) did you see Tim Pool tear Twitter a new a-hole? Brilliant. That might be Joe Rogans greatest pod cast ever from the 5 or 6 I've seen. I wont post the original because its too long but of all the "mini clips" I've seen this has to be the best one. As someone who has studied Kinesics I can say this woman seems reliable.

This keeps coming up as "an error occurred"
maybe my YT embedding intelligence is not up to par. Worked for me in the past. Is this what they mean when they say your age starts to catch up with you?

Just wanted to post this here.


https://www.washingtonpost.com/busin...=.25e178d4f301

A secret effort to influence the 2017 Senate election in Alabama used tactics inspired by Russian disinformation teams, including the creation of fake accounts to deliver misleading messages on Facebook to hundreds of thousands of voters to help elect Democrat Doug Jones in the deeply red state, according to a document obtained by The Washington Post.

Looks like a race to the bottom from here on out.
The world is going mad. Something we can all agree on.

Thank you.


In what area? Peterson's "postmodern marxism" (his weird hijack of cultural bolchevism) you can easily go through any of Chomsky's lectures .


His ideas of values ? check how Harris destroyed him on his claims on what Weinstein coined as "metaphorical truth" on Harris podcast and further pangburn debates.


Even Zizek seems reasonable well equipped to argue against them (and yet, I don't think his future debate will leaad anything fruitful)



Then again, this thread is about Trump... so... stop derailing.

I saw the live stream. props to Dorcey to stand up to the fire. I think Tim is arguing from a weird position though, "what about this and what about that? that lady told him that they work mostly on reports. I agree there is a bigger issue about a private platform becoming so important on the public sphere. That is an interest debate to have.

I thought he withered in his lies. The above video I posted agrees. He stood up to the fire, but he got burnt. I admit, I did not see the whole podcast but I did see a large chunk of it before I ran out of time. I agree with you on your last part. It is an issue and twitter is clearly one sided. Their mouths say one thing but the body and eyes say something else. They were not composed in their skin at all.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump tweeted today that Joe Biden is a "low I.Q. individual". (Talk about the pot...)

One of the commenters posted this gem, asking Trump how he is with names:

Unfortunately, it looks like that clip was compiled before Trump met Tim Apple, but there's always room for a Part 2.

There's plenty more where that came from. Remember how Trump has "all the best words"? Here's the Daily Show's greatest hits compilation, 2017:

I happen to like Joe Rogan. As a side note, his podcast with Dr Peter Attia is really interesting and informative. Note that Dr. Attia deals with longevity but, if you have the time and interest, it is definitely worth the view.

https://podcastnotes.org/2018/04/27/attia-2/

That said, Joe Rogan also interviewed Ben Shapiro... Here is the link:

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

At last, some adults in the room!

GM responded late Sunday to a series of angry tweets from President Donald Trump demanding that the automaker reopen or sell a plant it recently closed because of shifting customer demand.

"To be clear, under the terms of the UAW-GM National Agreement, the ultimate future of the unallocated plants will be resolved between GM and the UAW," GM (GM) said in a statement, referring to the United Automobile Workers union.

A Trump retweet today.

Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

More Donald J. Trump Retweeted Brad Parscale

A total loser!Donald J. Trump added,

Quote:
Brad Parscale@parscale

We all know that @realDonaldTrump turned down Mr. Kellyanne Conway for a job he desperately wanted.
He barely worked @TheJusticeDept and was either fired/quit, didn’t want the scrutiny? Now he hurts his wife because he is jealous of her success.
POTUS doesn’t even know him!
Conundrums
How did Spanky manage to turn down Conway for a job when "POTUS doesn’t even know him!"??

A Trump retweet today.



Couple of conundrums
1. How did Spanky manage to turn down Conway for a job when "POTUS doesn’t even know him!"??
2. This tweet "Brad Parscale@parscale" does not show up in Parscale's tweet history?
I was also wondering how Trump could assess Conway to be "a total loser" when he'd never even met him. (Also wondering how the lovely Kellyanne would react... another departure from the Trump menagerie imminent?)

I find that rather ironic, Rogan never challenge his guests. At all. Literally. All too often he doesn't even direct them with his questions.

That said, I deeply despise Rubin's omnipresent fake smile, couldn't stand watching him for more than a couple minutes.
