    I didn’t say that no one questions BBC, just that it’s considered to be the most trustable of the sources that he either uses or manipulates his information from. His comments on here and his need to misconstrue information prove that he isn’t as smart as he thinks he is (your manipulation and jumbling of my own words do the same for you; I guess you’re twins). Of course the first time I look into this thread in forever is someone defending him from an argument from two months ago.

    There is an exciting election this week

    EU citizens will elect a new European Parliament between 23 and 26 May. Voters in each of the bloc’s 28 member states vote for their national parties, whose MEPs then form pan-European groups along rough ideological lines to work together in the parliament.

    With 3 days until voting begins, polls suggest the centre-right European Peoples’ Party and centre-left Socialists & Democrats are likely to remain the largest groups in parliament, but are likely to lose their combined majority for the first time.
    Eurosceptic and anti-immigration parties, currently divided between three groups, look set to make the greatest gains. Some of these parties intend to form a new group, the European Alliance of Peoples and Nations, after the election.
    The UK will participate in the election and will elect 73 of the parliament’s 751 seats as in the 2014-2019 parliamentary term. When the UK leaves the bloc, the number of seats in parliament will shrink from 751 to 705, with 27 of the UK’s 73 seats being reallocated to other countries.

    MILAN (AP) – The leader of France’s National Rally party, Marine Le Pen, is predicting that a group of like-minded right-wing populists will achieve “a historic feat” in next week’s Europe-wide elections.

    Like Australia and Brazil, the EU will swing strongly right, rejecting globalism and totalitarianism guised as socialism.  In Canada snowflake Justin Trudeau is on his way out due to incompetence and scandal, though, to his credit,  he did legalise marijuana.

    I believe many progressives know in their misguided hearts that Trump will win a second term, as do normal Democrats.  A second term for Trump is essential. and likely.

    European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has slammed “stupid” people who love their own countries.

    “These populist, nationalists, stupid nationalists, they are in love with their own countries,” Juncker told CNN.

    Good  call  J-C.

    European elections results LIVE: Macron EU plans suffer BLOW as French President DEFEATED

    MARINE LE PEN has dealt a major blow to pro-EU Emmanuel Macron as her far-right National Rally party is estimated to have topped La Republique En Marche in the European elections.  A projection for France 2 television shows Mrs Le Pen’s party at 23.2 percent, ahead of Mr Macron’s centrist movement at 21.9 percent. If confirmed, this result would deal a major blow to the French President’s plan to further reform the European Union.

    Results will only be confirmed once the last poll closes – in Italy at 10pm UK time. The first countries expected to declare their results are the ones who voted on Thursday, including the United Kingdom, and Friday.

    Among the countries which could cause a huge shake up there are Italy, France and the UK, with Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage having already declared the vote will place him as the kingmaker of British politics as voters protest the Brexit chaos.

    This election appears to be a major setback for the totalitarian globalists!  Logic, reason and sanity are returning…excellent.

    Nigel Farage  Twitter

    It is clear Donald Trump wants Brexit to happen. He is a true friend to Britain.

    From the Sunday Times

    “Should Donald Trump have said the things that he said, in particular that he rather likes Boris Johnson and that he thought I should go and be Britain’s chief negotiator in Brussels,” Farage said on Fox News.
    “‘Should he have intervened’ is the big debate, but of course the fact is that Obama flew to London during our referendum, telling us to vote to stay in the European Union. So, I think in many ways, Trump has every reason to get involved in this.”
    “Brexit isn’t just a British issue – it’s actually abut the future of the entire Western world.”

    Farage went on to correlate the sentiments that delivered the stunning outcome of the Brexit referendum with those that powered Trump to victory in the 2016 president election – watershed events which many feel triggered the nationalist-populist waves that continue to ripple across the European continent and the world beyond.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez  @AOC

    Yep. Voting against cost of living increases for members of Congress may sound nice, but doing so only increases pressure on them to keep dark money loopholes open.

    This makes campaign finance reform *harder.*

    ALL workers deserve cost of living increases, incl min wage workers.

    The “or else” in that tweet is not even hidden.

    There is something very, very wrong with Ocasio-Crazy. This is not a smart or stable person, and her smug sense of entitlement is off the charts.
    She is also not an ethical person.
    This time, though, you cannot blame the Swamp… Ocasio-Crazy arrived entitled and corrupt.

    Canada’s team, the Toronto Raptors, win the NBA Championship  Amazing

    The roots of basketball are firmly embedded in Canada. In 1891 the game was invented by Dr. James Naismith, a Canadian who hailed from Almonte, Ontario.  The National Basketball Association also has origins in Canada. The NBA’s first game was played in Toronto over fifty years ago, on November 1, 1946 when the New York Knickerbockers defeated the Toronto Huskies 68-66 at Maple Leaf Gardens. The teams were part of the Basketball Association of America, the forerunner to the NBA.

    For the majority of Canadians this is a joyous occasion with no/zero disrespect for the Golden State Warriors.

    It was liberating to hear the commentators comment on the strong smell of pot in downtown Toronto.  Imagine waiting 50 years for them to ‘Legalize It’.  (Peter Tosh)

    Wow, a response to a post from one month ago.  Unheard of!  preposterous!  And after all that time I still find you a pompous ass…and like your peers, profoundly ignorant and misinformed and mainstream educated.  The ‘dumbing down’ is so obviously successful it is frightening.

    If there is any ‘liberal’ who is under the delusion that there are only one or two supporters of logic and reason on Gold Derby, you are sorely mistaken.  This may come as a shock to you…many non-liberals love the movies, tv et al.

    John Lennon’s Son Slams “Pathetic” Political Correctness

    Sean Ono Lennon slammed political correctness as “pathetic,” pointing out how many people are “offended by comedy and science.”
    “When I was young the most interesting people were left wing intellectuals. Believe it or not,” Lennon tweeted. “We’ve become the church lady. It’s embarrassing. We’re offended by comedy and science. It’s pathetic.”

    He subsequently explained that the Overton Window has moved so far left that in the future, current left-wing intellectuals will be “considered right because they are all right of Che Guevara.”
    Lennon illustrated the intellectual bankruptcy of progressivism by pointing out, “The upside to cultural collapse is how easy it is to spot intelligence against a backdrop of intellectual entropy.”
    Sean Ono Lennon follows in the footsteps of his legendary father in being a true free thinker who isn’t afraid to speak his mind despite this possibly impacting his music career given that the industry is heavily left-wing and unforgiving towards anyone who questions the sacred cows of progressivism.

    He was previously targeted by the ‘woke’ outrage mob in 2016 when he asserted, “The term ‘mansplaining’ is sexist.”
