    That surely can wait. I am afraid more now about Jerusalem... Mme Psaki said that WH is monitoring the events very closely.

    On the second thought, the Jerusalem is already occupied. Can it be occupied twice?

    I do not think it's possible. Double occupation is something like double jeopardy, that's also not possible...

    What would you have them do?

    What is Putin doing about it? Oh, here t is: Putin is watchful of the situation. Ho fundamentally different from the WH.

    What does Xi say about it? Nothing. No ports to build on 'low-interest' loans nor impoverished nations to subjugate

    I'm surprised at you Cujo, posting such shite. Jumping in bed with the looney left. CNN is the lefts answer to Fox, meaning you have to fact check their selective, biased reporting as much as you have to do when Fox reports on the left. Their pro israeli bias is so blatant you'd have to be devoid of any balance to believe it.
    The fact RT never criticises Putin tells you they are biased as is CGTN owned by the Chinese govt and likewise never publishes anything not approved by Beijing. Al Jazeera like wise is subject to their govt and always have a pro Arab stance. When was the last time you saw a genuine critique of Islam and the persecution of Christians in the middle east? That doesnt make everything they write incorrect but all of them should be viewed with a healthy amount of skepticism, fact checked and verified.
    The far left ABC in Australia was recently caught out shortening a video of the prime minister which took the video completely out of context.
    Yes, there are idiots on the far right as there are on the far left, that is a given and to think one side owns stupidity is myopic to say the least. Pointing out one or more right wing idiot does not make them all wrong no more than pointing out a looney left video makes the left all loons. It only points to your own partisanship.
    Critical thinking seems to have gone out the window these days especially here on TD, where there are two polarised partisan camps with nothing in between.

    Forgive me please for reminding what you are always very keen on: "whataboutism". (not sure whether with my poor English I correctly understood your esteemed writing...)

    This thread is not about Mr. P., nor about Mr. Xi...

    But it's so easy to do . . . which is why you do it all the time and it's massively hypocritical of you to criticise it by others.

    How about - you cease using this in your posts. That would take 90% of 'whataboutist' posts off here

    This is the repubtards lunacy thread.
    CNN is a news outlet.
    This is about an actual political party that promotes crazy conspiracy theories.
    Like the most secure and fair election in the history of the U.S. was a big fraud and vaccines have killed millions.
    If we stop testing right now wed have very few cases, if any. Donald J Trump.

    I'm not saying the left or the right in general . maybe I didn't make it clear. I was talking about the U.S. Republican party (don't know why you would bring Australia or the ABC into it.)

    Not even close.
    As long as Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Greg Gutfeld, Jesse Watters, and Laura Ingram are polluting the airwaves with their bullshit, Faux Noise will always be the king of fake news.

    Conspiracy Theories Find Audience in Democrats, Republicans

    Majority of Americans believe unproven or bogus claims: survey

    Democrats and Republicans alike are falling prey to misinformation as conspiracy theories thrive across the U.S. in the weeks leading up to the presidential election, a new survey found.
    A majority of Americans believe unproven or debunked claims and viral conspiracies, according to a joint survey by the liberal think tank, the Center for American Progress, and the Survey Center on American Life, a project of the right-leaning American Enterprise Institute. The survey tested different conspiracy theories -- on politics, science and public health -- to gauge whether demographic or partisan backgrounds are correlated to a higher likelihood of accepting or rejecting certain claims.


    Misinformation about Covid-19 is most pronounced among Republicans, with 48% believing that the disease is no more dangerous than the flu and 42% saying that hydroxychloroquine -- an anti-malaria drug championed by President Donald Trump despite scientific misgivings -- is a safe and effective treatment for the virus, survey data shows.


    Sixty percent of Democrats believe Russia has compromising information about Trump, while roughly the same percentage of Republicans are convinced there has been a coordinated effort by “unelected government officials” to undermine the Trump administration.


    Less than half of those surveyed, 44%, said they would be willing to get a no-cost, FDA-approved vaccine to prevent Covid-19, a finding roughly equal among Democrats (47%) and Republicans (45%). However, only 21% of Black Americans report that they would take it, the survey found.

    I don't know if you're aware skidmark but this is not about the general public but about the Republican party pushing lies and debunked conspiracy theories.

    That is not a conspiracy theory. It is a valid concern and still is. Nice try though.

    Another swing and miss by one of the forum idiots.

    I don't doubt it and you're right. At this point she'll be ousted though.

    The GOP won't censure people who push lies and conspiracy theories, white supremacists and those credibly suspected of sex trafficking but it will move against anyone who speaks the truth.

    It's fully the party of Trump and they have no meaningful policies or agendas other than obstructing Biden and whining about imagined cultural grievances.
