    [–] Trump tears into environmental 'doom' mongers at Davos forum Molire 1 points ago in politics

    Yea, they laugh at him. Unfortunately, the World Economic Forum apparently has a rule or a tradition requiring it to extend an invitation to attend the annual WEF Forum in Davos each year to the head of state of each of the twenty countries that are members of the G20, which includes the USA, Saudi Arabia, and Russia, currently the three largest producers of petroleum in the world, in descending order.

    [–] Dershowitz Argument that Trump Could Let Putin Take Alaska Shows Up in House Brief Molire 1 points ago in politics

    No president in U.S. history has been impeached for a sexual offense, yet, but one (Bill Clinton) was impeached for lying under oath (perjury) and obstruction of justice; and one (Andrew Johnson) was impeached under 11 articles of impeachment, with a violation of the Tenure of Office Act as the primary offense.

    Russia would be better than Florida, in part because Florida is about 4,070 miles (6,550 km) from the Russia mainland, while Alaska is only about 51 miles (82 km) from the Russia mainland.

    Russia could build a series of three bridges to drive from the Russia mainland to the Alaska mainland. The total driving distance would be about 52 miles (84 km). At an average speed of 35 mph (56 km/h), Russian military transport trucks and vehicles could complete the drive from Russia to Alaska in about one and a half hours, where Russia could build navy bases, army bases, air force bases, missile bases and towns across Alaska to the Canadian borders.

    Russia could build a first bridge, 22 miles (36 km) long, from the Russia mainland to the 2.6-mile wide (4 km-wide) Big Diomede Island (Russia); a second bridge, 2.4 miles (3.9 km) long, from Big Diomede Island to the 2-mile-wide (3.2 km-wide) Little Diomede Island (Alaska); and a third bridge, 23 miles (37 km) long, from Little Diomede Island to the Alaska mainland. The total driving distance across the 3 bridges and the 2 islands from the Russia mainland to the Alaska mainland would be about 52 miles (84 km).

    As of January 1, 2019, the poverty rate in the United States was higher (worse) than in 45 other countries. In this list of 173 countries, some of the countries where the poverty rate was less (better) than in the United States include the following countries: Hungary, Chile, Russia, Vietnam, China, and 40 other countries.

    The underlying data is accurate as of January 1, 2019, and is sourced from CIA The World Factbook.

    Sounds like you are one of the lucky rich ones who has never seen, cannot see, or does not want to see the 131.7 million people who were living in deep poverty, poverty, or near poverty in the United States in 2018.

    In 2018, 11.9 million children, 16.2% of all children, were living in poverty in the United States. That’s almost 1 in every 6 children.

    In 2018, 17.3 million people, 5.3% of the population, were living in deep poverty in the United States.

    In 2018, 38.1 million people, 11.8% of the population, were living in poverty in the United States.

    In 2018, 93.6 million people, 29.9% of the population, were living close to poverty in the United States.

    In 2018, 25.4% of the Native American population and 20.8% of the Black population were living in poverty in the United States.

    Yep. Additionally, if Trump is removed from office, resigns, or becomes incapacitated, and, in turn, if Pence is impeached and removed from office for his complicity and involvement in the same high crimes and misdemeanors underlying the two Articles of Impeachment adopted against Trump (Abuse of Power, Contempt of Congress) or becomes incapacitated, under the U.S. Constitution, the Speaker of the House becomes President.

    [–] No offence, but tor seems kinda boring Molire 2 points ago * (lasted edited 13 hours ago) in TOR

    Is there anything interesting there

    If you were searching for onion services, in my experience there is no search engine reliably effective for searching for onion services because they are not indexed to the extent https sites are indexed, but you can look at https://ahmia.fi/ and https://ahmia.fi/onions/. Links to some other search engines are in the "Indexes and Search" section in the sidebar at r/onions.

    In any event, in my experience, most Users of Tor have found that most of the 66,378 onion services with unique .onion addresses (as on 18 Jan 2020) are either boring, uninteresting, shutdown, misconfigured, involved in illicit or illegal activities of no interest to most Tor users, or aim to con and defraud the unwary, the naive, and the foolish.

    [–] 2020 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland braces for Trump-Greta showdown as climate change tops agenda — It's the first time the two are attending same event since Greta famously stared down Trump at UN. Sustainability is main theme at this year's international summit from Tuesday to Friday. Molire 2 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago) in worldnews

    Good question. The WEF invited the head of state of the United States, and ugly impeached Trump happens to be the head of state at this moment in U.S. history. Traditionally, the WEF extends an invitation to the head of state of each of the 20 countries with membership in the G20. The U.S. is one of the member countries. I expect none of the estimated 3,100 persons scheduled to attend the 2020 WEF summit can stand Trump, except for his U.S. government attendants and handlers; the President and de facto dictator of Russia, Vladimir Putin; and the de facto dictator of Saudi Arabia, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Russia and Saudi Arabia are G20 members.

    You can watch a video of the opening ceremonies of the 50th World Economic Forum summit in Davos, which began about 10 hours ago, on January 20. The speaker in the video at the top of the page is Ursula von der Leyen, a German citizen and the President of the European Commission. I think live-streaming of the three days of speeches and presentations from January 21-24, will be available to watch on the WEF web site: https://www.weforum.org/events/world-economic-forum-annual-meeting-2020

    According to the schedule on the WEB web site, Trump will give a speech on January 21 from 11:30 am to 12:00 PM CET (5:30 am to 6:00 am EST - New York time).

    According to a CNN article from 2014:

    "The World Economic Forum is strictly by invitation only. The roll call includes CEOs and representatives from the world's biggest corporations; politicians and heads of state from the G20 and other key countries."

    Unfortunately, if Trump is removed from office, resigns, or leaves office for some other reason before his term ends on January 20, 2021, Vice-President Mike Pence would become president and could pardon Trump, like Vice-President Gerald Ford pardoned Richard Nixon on September 8, 1974, thirty days after Nixon resigned from the Office of the Presidency on August 9, 1974, the same date Ford transitioned from vice-president to president.

    However, if one or more state courts in New York, California, and/or other states convict Trump of one or more state crimes and sentence him to state prison, Pence will not be able to pardon Trump because presidential pardons can apply only to federal crimes.

    Note: I think a president Pence would pardon Satan after Pence found out Satan is a Republican.

    After Trump reaches the end of life (old age, fatal heart attack, etc.), I expect his wife, former wives, children, and others will engage in a ferocious and vicious struggle for many years/decades, in a legal war over who gets any of the scraps of his estate, if a Trump estate actually exists after subtracting debts, lawsuit settlements, back taxes, interest, and penalties, property forfeitures to government entities, and other encumbrances. I can imagine some in the Trump family secretly hiring professional kidnappers and assassins to eliminate other family members and associates — competitors — fighting for Trump's estate, if one exists. I think the main reason Trump's immediate family members remain in his close orbit today is because all of them are waiting for him to die so they can get some of what they hope will be an estate with some worth — the big payoff.
