Going through the list of 277 illegal acts, most of them make sense, especially when you take into account Japan’s unique situation of being an ethnically homogeneous, hard working, and honor bound society, whose citizens still pay a worldwide penalty for the cruel and vicious acts of their ancestors. As someone who supports a strong stance against terror, I welcome preemptive action and instituting order through law. That being said, some of these so called “terrorist actions” are ridiculous and clearly have a different motive.
Other mediocre showings included Destiny 2, the new Call of Duty, and a startling lack of independent content. To make matters worse, the audience wasn’t very excited this year, and every time the producers would cut to an audience reaction we would get some hype-killing display, like somebody yawning, on their phone, or just generally seeming uninterested, which is such a stark difference from last year's display. At least Xbox put their audience in matching t-shirts….
Several cities across America today held what were supposed to be civil demonstrations against Sharia Law. The demonstrations were put on by a group called ACT for America, which is a non-profit anti-terror group in the U.S. which was founded by terror expert (and terror survivor) Brigitte Gabriel. The point of the protests was to raise awareness about the barbaric system that is Sharia Law, as well as point out to citizens that Islamic beliefs, whether extreme or moderate, are not compatible with western values, ethics, and laws.
What Comey said at the hearing was nothing short of incredible, in the sense that it not only failed to bring up anything of negative impact on Trump, but instead accidentally incriminated several other figures including Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton, Comey’s friends, and Comey himself. Important to take away from the hearing is that in all actuality, Trump was never under investigation from the FBI about Russian collusion, which not only immediately invalidated the entire liberal narrative, but also raised the question of who the media used as a source about this in the first place. Your guess is as good as mine, but one thing is for sure, it definitely wasn’t someone from the actual FBI, as they would know whether or not there was an investigation going on in their own bureau.
To recap, America is currently backing Saudi Arabia, who also funds ISIS who we’re enemies with. Iran is allied with Russia, and enemies with basically everyone else, but especially Saudi and ISIS after the terror attack. An interesting nation to watch during this is Israel, who although allied with the U.S. primarily, doesn’t have bad blood with Russia, although it is essentially mortal enemies with Iran, who prays for Israel’s destruction. You confused yet? Imagine how Trump feels.
In case you missed it, Ariana Grande, or at least Ariana Grande’s publicity team, thought it was best after the Manchester terror attack to do a “One Love” concert, whose proceeds would go towards charity and whose main message would be one of love. All of the hottest names in pop music like Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber took time out of their busy schedules to perform in Manchester, each person wearing some casual looking outfit and playing songs that promoted peace, love and unity, blaming all the hatred that exists in the world for the tragedies that have taken place.
In case you’re unaware of what’s been going on in the world for the past decade or so, practically all of western civilization has been engaged in an active war against several nations in the Middle East as well as groups who engage in/generally support the notion of terrorism. This has been a messy and unorganized decade, that if you totalled it up, has led to so many pointless and tragic deaths that if one thought about it too much it might traumatize and jade an entire generation (not like that’s happened or anything).
The New York Times decided, after go figure, another year of not making enough money to pay their worthless employees, that they needed to downsize. Instead of getting rid of their low level employees or under-performing reporters, the Times* instead thought it was a good idea to purge their editors. I’ll say that again. In the era of “Fake News” and full blown slander ridden, non-fact based journalism, the Times really thinks the smart move is to get rid of more editors.
