You know when I said there would be interesting statistics from the government shutdown, this is not what I had in mind (safe for work): https://www.pornhub.com/insights/government-shutdo...

In Washington, D.C., results were similar with traffic after midnight up nearly 12% and early morning traffic down from 8am to 11am. Overall, D.C. traffic was up 6.32% above average the week of January 7th to 11th when compared to D.C.’s pre-shutdown averages. Female traffic in D.C. increased by 12.3% above average.
So basically when people are off work they are staying up later and watching more porn....? I would have assumed that was fairly predictable.... hehe
And not watching porn at work : morning viewing figures are down.

Here we see some young MAGA dicknozzles hassling some Native Americans while they peacefully protest.

This is America.

Edit to add some more. Hillary called them deolorables and everyone lost their st. Simpler times.

The drumming guy was a Vietnam vet, fought for his country (well, the country the early immigrants let him have anyway...).

It's difficult to know where to start to be honest, so many things in this one little moment.
Those MAGA hats will become like swasticas once this is all over. Openly hated by most but loved by a few disgusting individuals.

America has always been like this. They have just come back out into the open.

Trumps offer yesterday to end the shutdown, ended up being a fudge, pleasing neither the Dems nor his base and had all the signs of Kushner trying to come up with something so trump didn't lose face. It's something that didn't please Miller who been pushing the tough line on immigration

McConnel says he'll put it to the senate next week, the house Dems say they'll put forward another 6 bills to reopen government departments

When you dig in to what Nathan Phillips, the Omaha Elder, has been through and what he does with the Native American youth, how dignified he was at that moment and how upset but calm he was afterwards in contrast to the young kids who have probably every advantage in life travelling to protest about controlling women's bodies for some prehistoric reason they don't understand, sponsored by the school (a fking school trip to protest abortion - how fked is that?) that should be teaching at least some basic values....I give up.

I was listening to a podcast the other day about the biggest threat to the Black community not being white supremacists but absent fathers - 75% of kids in that population born out of wedlock - 5 times more likely to end up dead, in prison or on drugs than families with fathers [this was a Black guy saying all this, which makes it talk-aboutable I guess...) and then I see these kids who probably have decent homes fathers and mothers, clubs and activities, money and comfort and I fking wonder.

I don't know why this has spiked me, maybe my grumpy toothache, but....well, what can you say.

Maybe to calm the dispute between the black and white kids, maybe to get out of the way. ,I dunno.
Not sure I buy the interpretation of the kids look,or the dancing.
Either way those kids deserved a good kicking for their smug,MAGA inspired, views on a right to choose.

Thousands were surprised and confused Saturday to discover the reason for the Alamo City's success and safety was our wall.
In comments preceding his announcement on the continuing partial government shutdown and border security, President Donald Trump cited San Antonio when speaking about the effectiveness of security walls.
"Everybody knows that walls work. You look at different places they put up a wall, no problem. You look at San Antonio. You look at so many different places. They go from one of the most unsafe cities in the country to one of the safest cities, immediately, immediately."
Let that one rumble around in your head for a bit.
A quick search (consisting of looking out the window and then checking Texas Department of Transportation traffic cameras) found no walls barring anyone from San Antonio. In fact, the city is often known as one of the most welcoming and friendly cities in Texas.
Mayor Ron Nirenberg said Saturday that San Antonio is indeed one of the safest's cities in the U.S.
"San Antonio is one of the safest big cities in the nation," Nirenberg said. "The Express-News reported last year that crime is at a 30-year low here. The plummeting crime rate is due to the hard work being done by the brave men and women of the San Antonio Police Department."
The mayor did not comment on the city's wall. Probably because there isn't one.
San Antonio remains about 150 miles from Mexico. The effectiveness of a wall around San Antonio - real or imagined - to keep America's southern border safe remains unclear.
The only wall of any notoriety in San Antonio's history are the walls of the Alamo. And unfortunately, those didn't work out too well for us last time.

it’s the economy that will ruin him.

High tax band for very high earners is popular even amongst republican voters.

Business is still not investing their tax cuts as there is no demand.

It's the BBC - nobody on PH will believe it smile

It just shows though that when there are thousands of lies being told, sorting out the REAL lies from the fake lies is difficult.
The Mueller team statement IS very carefully worded, though.

"Buzzfeed's description of specific statements to the Special Counsel's Office, and characterisation of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen's Congressional testimony are not accurate."

You can't tell from that whether they are "true" or not, merely that the Mueller team does not agree with the manner in which they have been presented. Buzzfeed could have any number of discrepancies, whilst still representing a grain of truth.

For example, it could have been one agent, or three, providing the information, and Mueller's statement is entirely truthful (as Buzzfeed's statement said two).
As I said this morning, The Buzzfeed article is mostly correct, the Special Council’s office statement is not a denial, just that parts are wrong.

The article mentions documents being shown to the reporters, essentially a leak from the SDNY, not Mueller. Mueller never leaks and he made the unprecedented decision to clarify this.

I think this is that Mueller had to respond when the BuzzFeed story was pushing Congress to move quickly to impeach. Mueller needs more time to finish properly and they cannot have Congress jumping the gun.
Clever play by Mueller showing even-handedness and thereby boosting his credibilty - kindly helped by Trump who took it at face value by responding in his usual thoughtless manner.

The Alamo does have a wall, although it's not on great shape. Maybe Trump thinks that The Alamo surrounds the whole of San Antonio.

Nathan went to that guy just because he had a hat, hat guy didn’t go to him . He started banging drums in that kids face kid was very restrained, what’s the problem he didn’t get on his knees and apologise because a guy was abusing him and getting in his space? He didn’t back away hey let’s destry this kid for lottery standing in front of somebody who went up to him

. Video clips on youtube show this. They also show those kids standing not doing anything being abused by African Americans ( who were also being homophobic calling Donald trump gay but that won’t get reported)

Neither will this.

The democrats from the start played on identity politics. Calling people deplorable just for voting different

Bad behavior on both sides is now the norm, thanks to being 'Normalised' by a President with no morals or decency. I've said before on this thread that Trump legacy will be a continual slide into abusive and selfish behavior. When the man at the very top of a country acts like a 7 year old it is not surprising that children copy him......
