Great read. I hope I will be dead by the time this will be globally implemented:
Pearl River Delta: China Experiments with a New Kind of Megalopolis - SPIEGEL ONLINE - International

The Smart Center collects images, traffic information and movement data from hundreds of thousands of video cameras and mobile devices. During the first six months of 2017, the number of thefts in Longgang declined by more than half. Now, says one staff member, data from the Smart Center is used to clear up 85 percent of all criminal complaints, ranging from traffic offenses to pick pocketing. Just about every corner of public space is under the watchful gaze of a surveillance camera.

Imagine challenging a champion debater and constitutional scholar from Princeton to a 2nd amendment debate and you're the person from Who's the Boss.

It would end up like that thing about playing chess with a pigeon. The media would distort it to make it look like she won or at least held her own so lefties would be crowing endlessly online. Normies dont think for themselves so they would think she won as well.

This is going to be one of the most embarrassing historical moments:
US emphasizes the need for a 'good deal' with Taliban | DW | 07.09.2019

Everything we have been fighting for over there will be lost or just given to Taliban.

An agreement between the US and the Taliban is likely to increase President Ghani's problems at home. Analysts say that a US-Taliban deal would diminish the chances of holding a presidential election in September. And without his re-election, Ghani would be in a weaker position to negotiate his terms with the Taliban.

Ghani made it clear earlier this month that he did not want foreign nations to interfere in the country's affairs — an indirect message to Washington.

In a televised speech, Ghani referenced the upcoming presidential elections and said that "without a legitimate and strong government that comes through an election, Afghans won't be able to achieve a dignified peace."

"Our future cannot be decided outside, whether in the capital cities of our friends, nemeses or neighbors. The fate of Afghanistan will be decided here in this homeland," Ghani said. "We don't want anyone to intervene in our affairs."

There's nothing there worth fighting for. We tried to build something, the locals would rather stay barbarians.

Best we can do is quarantine the country. Keep the crazies boxed in their little backward playground until they decide to crawl out of the stone age on their own.

Yes. That was clear from the very beginning, we did not learn from Soviets. This is going to be another Iran we will leave for our kids to mess around for another few decades.

Excellent Orban:
https://www.kormany.hu/en/the-prime...o-families-a-national-community-can-disappear

The Prime Minister pointed out that with regard to demography, migration must be excluded as a possible solution, “population replacement” must not be accepted, and there must also be rejection of the “nonsensical” green argument that the Earth would benefit from fewer children being born. He added that according to the order of creation, humans are not enemies of the ecosphere, but a part of it; therefore one must not set one in opposition to the other. Instead, he said, the place for an ever-increasing human population must be rationally designated within the ecosphere.

Mr. Orbán also said that a turning point in the success of the family support system can be reached if those deciding to have children are guaranteed better living standards than if they had decided not to have children. He said: “This is the point we are seeking, this is where we want to get to. This will be the tipping point for the Hungarian family support system, but we are not there yet: to achieve this, we will need quite a few more years of resolute work.”

Among the spiritual foundations of Hungary’s family policy he mentioned the conviction that every child has the right to a mother and a father, and that families and children are in themselves a precondition for the national community’s biological regeneration. If there are no families and children, he said, a national community can disappear. He went on to say that for national communities of the size of the Hungarians, Czechs or Serbs, for example, it is not difficult to mathematically predict that a continuation of negative demographic trends would mean that “sooner or later there would be one survivor left to turn the lights off: potential extinction”. At the same time, he pointed out, if a nation disappears, “something irreplaceable disappears from the world”.

The Prime Minister also highlighted that the basis of the Hungarian model is constitutional in nature; otherwise it would be impossible to pursue long-term family policy. He noted that these constitutional foundations offer protection from anti-family court rulings, and from frequently anti-family international organisations, NGOs and networks “forcing their way” into Hungary’s state life and decision-making structure.

He observed that good family policy also needs economic foundations: in Hungary over the course of ten years, financial support for families has doubled; and there is the need for a predictable family support system over a period of many years.

He observed that nine out of ten people “in the salons of high politics” in Europe declare the impossibility of Hungary attaining its demographic policy goal of a fertility rate of 2.1. He listed, however, some of Hungary’s earlier measures which had been greeted with similar scepticism: “sending home the IMF”; the tax on banks; reductions in household utility bills; taxation of multinational companies; a proportional income tax rate; the creation of one million new jobs over ten years; halting the migrant influx and construction of the border fence. He pointed out that “Despite nine out of ten saying that it was impossible, we’ve somehow achieved every single one of the goals that we set ourselves and that were important for the Hungarian nation”.

Population decline, the Prime Minister continued, is not a global phenomenon, and neither is it specific to Christian civilisation: it is a general European phenomenon, caused by the enormous human loss of the two world wars, which to this day the continent has been unable to recover from. He stated that as the problems were caused by politics, they cannot be rectified without robust state intervention.

Exactly. It's better to bail and let them kill each other than stay in region and give them a target. This is why no troops should be in ME. Let's them kill themselves like they have been for millenia.

We could donate our wall? Only it has to go around the ENTIRE Middle East...

(just to be clear, facing inward, keeping them inside)

The only reason why we had troops in the ME is because of the global oil supply. The proper response to the oil embargo in the 1970s should have been a global counter embargo against the OPEC countries. The proper response to the 9/11 should have been to bankrupt the Saudis by not buying a drop of their oil. Same with Quatar now.

They hate us? Fine then they don't need our money or our trade.

Shut off the oil money and make them regret wasting trillions of dollars on terrorism, ghost cities, and tacky palaces instead of building a modern society and country wide networks of irrigation canals to terraform the desert into arable land like Israel has done.

How is this news? Clinton campaign hired and paid Fusion GPS for oppo research. This has been known forever.

Nunes is well on his way to being the first member of congress declared a vexatious litigant. He's living proof we need a loser pays legal system to prevent pointless filings.

lols, of course it's a RICO suit. I'll eat my steel toe boot if this succeeds.
Without Nunes and his efforts as a member of various House intelligence committees we would not have seen jack shit revealed about any of this and the dems would still be chanting "Russia Russia Russia"

So no.....you're pretty much dead wrong in your characterization of him and his efforts to pursue litigation to push further because thats pretty much the only option now that AOC is effectively the shrieker of the house

Oil is certainly one reason and as you suggest we could simply walk away....

But as much as I dont want us involved in the ME at all.......we have a choice to enguage economically with the ME OR we can allow them to more or less be controlled by the russians and chinese

We have much more influence over the region via trade policy than .mil........

Nunes knows he is going to lose these lawsuits, but he is willing to abuse the system to punish his enemies with legal fees. He's living proof we need SLAPP in every state and at the federal level.

I will bet real money that he will not win any of these lawsuits. Any takers?

Whether or not Nunes wins or loses some/part/all is irrelevent

What matters is that SOMEONE in the GOP is fighting back and giving the socialists/swamp the same treatment they subject their political enemies to day in and day out.

Nunes and his suits are a flea on the arse of an elephant in the overall scope

Too bad you didnt/dont focus on the hundreds/thousands of the frivolous lawsuits that Soros and similar funded leftist groups levy against everyone day in/day/out for the last 30 years.......

So protecting our country's borders is a "vanity" project according to Debbie? Roll that out for the voters next November....This is nearly unbelievable. Democrats fighting to PRESERVE military spending.
This^

Trump is the very reason the military got that big budget increase.
That huge spending bill he signed in his rookie year, where he got rolled by Chuck & Nancy, (they were just giddy over it), the only reason he caved to their demands was to get that defense funding increase.
How many more bases would have been closed by now if Hilldabeast had won ???

Imagine if we didn't waste money on bases all over the world, especially in countries that we don't need to be in, and stacked them on the border instead.

In the modern day world I wouldn't let the US build a base in my country. Because we never f***ing leave! The USA is the worst house guest.
