As his wife is under federal investigation, Bill Clinton met on the tarmac with U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the Phoenix Airport, in what both sides say was an unplanned encounter submitted by fagnig to news

They didn't just meet on the tarmac, he was invited onto her plane. This was no casual "hello."

The Russian ambassador to Turkey was assassinated today, and there was a shooting in Zurich.

That's three terrorist attacks in a single day against three different countries (4 if you include Turkey since it was a Russian Turkish ambassador).

It's beginning to look a lot like war.

The Cold War Between Reddit and Imgur Has Officially Begun submitted by sturle to technology

Wow Motherboard totally missed the fact that Andreessen Horowitz is invested in both Reddit and Imgur. So basically, two Andreessen Horowitz startups are now competing against each other, no matter what happens Andreessen Horowitz wins.

Certain people are freaking out over Trump.. but are unable to explain why. submitted by stillinit to politics

trentlapinski 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

Note: Totally undecided, I don't really care for any candidate, I think they're all different branches of crazy.

Here's my theory: Most of the people who hate Trump fall into two categories:

1) Baby Boomers who believe anything they see on TV.

This group is the easiest to explain and understand, they're easily manipulated by the media, and because the media tells them not to like to Trump and be angry at him, they are. Meanwhile, they do no further research, and the issues don't really matter to them at this point because they've emotionally decided he's bad.

2) Millennials who have been raised and trained by the education system to respond hostilely towards micro-aggressions. Pretty much every other word from Trump's mouth is a micro-aggression because he isn't politically correct. All the cherry picked tv clips of him on repeat, and all the memes are triggering the millennials over and over again who have been trained not to speak or express themselves like he does. This is why the media gives him so much coverage, it is forcing people to react emotionally to Trump in anger for reasons they don't fully comprehend.

If you accept that the whole purpose of political correctness is to control people's language and how they express themselves, then its easy to understand why an entire generation of millennials are reacting to him the way that they are. The mass media is purposely triggering them emotionally to dislike Trump by painting him as a racist, and comparing him to Hitler. That's really all they have to do to convince people that Trump is bad.

The irony of this situation is Trump isn't the one who took their freedoms away to begin with, or who forced political correctness on them in the first place which is far more responsible for why they're angry then anything Trump could ever say. If you actually look at his anti-establishment policies he is actually trying to return some of the freedoms that have been taken from both of these generations more so then any other candidate. Hillary wants to restrict rights more in the name of whatever the hell you call this society we live in right now, or Bernie's socialist America which would likely force even more restrictions and regulations on society.

If you actually pay attention to Trump's intention, he truly believes he is trying to help the American people. That doesn't mean I agree with him, just saying he wouldn't put his family through this if he didn't believe in something greater than himself. I'm sure he wouldn't mind the power that comes with it, but theres a greater ideology driving him and the media is doing everything they can to distract people from that and they are using every trick in the propaganda handbook to do so. I've never seen anything like it.

Once again, I don't agree with your assessment. I am not spamming a blog, these are just ideas, tech news, and political analysis.

There is no logical reason why I have to have a submission tax, and be forced to use Voat in a specific manor.

Please get me in touch with whoever created this rule so I can speak to them about this.

If you delete my account I will fight this and contact the founders of Voat. I am posting under my real name, my submission history is public, and again I'm just spreading ideas. I am not monetizing this, nor do I have any intention to make money from my writing. If people don't like what I have to say they can downvote me. I am creating high value content that Voat readers enjoy reading, and I have over 20,000 followers on social media.

Stop punishing content creators.

His son is a Phd. Candidate at UC Berkeley - https://twitter.com/alexandersoros

It doesn't prove anything, but it does prove the Soros family has ties to UC Berkeley.
