Re: Putin on the Writs

To be fair, the article doesn't make it clear whether the election-day malfunctions were due to Russian hacking of the vendor, or were just normal malfunctions and the Russian efforts were ineffective. But this is one of those things where (1) we shouldn't find out the hard way (i.e. elections shou...

Re: Putin on the Writs

That second article is just a restatement of the NYT piece with no new reporting. Yeah, you seem a little overeager. Sorry for trying to a find a link without a paywall for you guys. Of course I'm referring to the NYT report that stated the intelligence community and, by extension, our cyber warfar...

Re: Putin on the Writs

Is this not evidently an active cyber war? https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/15/us/politics/trump-cyber-russia-grid.html If Trump is in Russia's pocket, though, wouldn't we NOT be attacking them? Genuine question. Trump didn't know and lost his shit when he found out. We're not attacking Russia in an...

Re: Putin on the Writs

The intelligence community doesn't trust Trump with secrets because they think he's in Russia's pocket: https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/p ... ia-848695/

Re: Putin on the Writs

Tariffs are native trees and you are pretending they aren't. Punitive tariffs are kinda non-native or at least rare in the post-WWII U.S. economy, no? And it's not the use of tariffs generally that concerns me, but the specific way tariffs are being used as a bludgeon by this president. I'm no econ...

Re: Putin on the Writs

I have repeatedly said that I don't think it is a high-dimensional chessboard. How many times do I have to keep repeating that disclaimer? The problem is that there's a bit of a cycle: * Taktix declares that some Trump policy is Putin's specific (and maybe "Soviet") command given in order to underm...

Re: Putin on the Writs

Putin suggesting policies isn’t dumb guy crazy talk. Everyone suggests policies. All the time forever to any President. Saying that the reason we have tariffs on China is because is of Putin is dumb guy crazy talk. Calling that out doesn’t make me a defender of tariffs, a fan of trump, or best bros...

Re: Putin on the Writs

And honestly I don't know why it's so conspiratorial to think that adversaries don't analyse each other's strengths and weaknesses and try to form strategies around that. Not necessarily 11-dimensional chess but basic opportunism. Trump phones Putin on the regular, you're telling me Putin isn't at l...

Re: Putin on the Writs

He ran on tariffs. His people want tariffs. On the Chinese. This is what that looks like. Right. Putin's the strategist, he picks the policies that would hinder the U.S. the most (the U.S. food supply being one of our strongest attributes). Trump is just the guy who's job it is to sell it to the ru...

Putin says Russia will supply soy beans, poultry meat to China From Nov 2018, but still, fucking called it. Ah, yes. The legendary productivity and efficiency of Russian farming. Exactly, if all things are equal, Russian goods are undesirable. But if, say, your main supplier of soybeans (the U.S.) ...

The fact that the man kept getting loans and had contractors do work for him is the best critique of libertarian economic theories ever constructed.
And the fact that he got elected president is the strongest argument for libertarian political theories.
Can’t argue with that.
