not really, man. there is no reason to assume that any sexuality is involved. be concerned if you want, but jumping to conclusions is just that, jumping to conclusions. some people, particularly of biden's generation, are comfortable to break the norm of avoiding such affection. that norm is based in caution of raising such concerns, and those who break it seem to do so because they are willing to bear the scrutiny. they do so for the sake of intending to comfort others, because they seem to think that the norm stands in the way of reassurance, cheer, and comradery that is lacking. 

 

misguided, maybe. but i just am not convinced of the ugly suggestion. and it really carries a lot of the hallmarks of very ugly smear propaganda.

I don't know what you're all complaining about . Under Trump we have had ten hours of studio releases from Ae and something like 30 hours of soundboards, as well as the best aphex music since the

Bruh I'm a lot more concerned about whether (and how) Trump is:

  • Attempting a coup
  • Cooking the books at the pentagon
  • Avoiding jail time
  • TL;DR endangering national security and obstructing justice

Hair sniffing seems to be a progressive value. Boomers seem to think it's unacceptable more than millennials do.

A whopping 77 percent of those polled think it is completely unacceptable for a male political candidate to come up behind a woman to sniff her hair. And despite the narrative that older Americans are more likely to excuse behavior like this, 85 percent of Baby Boomers said they think it is completely unacceptable. That’s 15 percent more than millennials.

LOL Trump has a well established track record of lying, corruption and bigotry. Was friends with actual pedo Jeffrey Epstein, photographed multiple visiting hit creepy parties, so who knows what's gone on there. He's a known adulterer. Basically he's a complete wrongun and it's obvious to everybody.

Biden appears to have sniffed some hair and stayed in some hugs for too long though. Why on Earth did we vote for this man!? Some fucking cretinous opinions around here recently.

Due to the recent failure of Proud Boy Chairman Enrique Tarrio to conduct himself with honor and courage on the battlefield, it has been decided that I Kyle Chapman reassume my post as President of Proud Boys effective immediately.

Our logo will forthwith be changed to reflect the core beliefs of Proud Boy members. Going forward we will now be known as PROUD GOYS. The coup is complete. The grifting leaders have been deposed

i'll take a benign creep over a narcissist fascist authoritarian sociopathic rapist pedophile moron any day and twice on sunday. trump is a fucking cancer. period. 

Anything is better than fascism. That's what Donald didn't realize when he constantly called him Sleepy Joe, as if being sleepy  is somehow worse than his being a fascist. "Crooked Hillary" was such a better and more effective nickname back in 2016.

I will take a govt that will probably be the personification of get-nothing-done centrism over Authoritarianism, thanks. 

I finally will get to kick back and not really pay attention to politics really until the republican primaries are back, and I'm sure the sequel will be even better than the 2016 original.

The only thing I expect and hope from Biden is to roll back all the changes made since Trump took office. After that I honestly don't expect a thing from Joe and unlike in 2016, I am going to be relieved at what we avoided for the next few years I am sure. Mediocrity has never looked so good!

look man i don't know how many group photos you've taken but shit happens all the time that is not intentional. sometimes an aunt's sideboob is on your arm and sometimes it would be more rude to make big thing out of it so you just have an aunt's sideboob on your arm. it doesn't mean you were molested by your aunt. you seem to be accepting the suggestion that these are deliberate and purposed on sexual pleasure, i don't. you're accepting the suggestion from what is obviously propaganda. it's not investigative journalism. the most generous description of these videos is that they come from immature amateurs. 

as for smelling, i guess i have to repeat what i already said to you - we don't know he was smelling. in fact, we know that in at least many of the cases he was talking to the person's ear. we also know he has a stutter, perhaps he went to say something and then paused. but you want to believe.

shall the civilized world descend into anarchy because you decline to be careful about conclusions?

Barr isn’t just humoring Trump. He’s weaponizing law enforcement.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2020/11/12/barr-memo-trump-campaign/

Quote

Attorney General William P. Barr issued a new policy Monday addressing opening investigations of the election. Despite its conspicuous timing — just days into President Trump’s attempt to bluff past the fact that he lost to Joe Biden — several commentators have said there’s nothing to fear from Barr’s new policy. This internal Justice Department memo, they say, is supposedly designed to placate Trump by creating the appearance that the department is doing something to cast doubt on the election results; it signifies nothing more.

An examination of the document shows that Barr has taken extraordinary steps to unleash powers within the Justice Department that permit far more than appeasement of the president with empty gestures. Barr is, once again, mixing politics and Justice Department policy, permitting the department to be weaponized to try to overturn the results of this election. The effects of this new policy could be realized within days. Indeed, Barr states in the memo that he has already authorized election investigations. Watch out for announcements (or leaks) of federal inquests that appear to provide a veneer of substance to bolster Trump and his attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani’s empty allegations calling into question the rightful outcome of the election.

The Barr memo contains three revealing elements, each of which lowers the threshold for instituting an improper political investigation.

First, Barr changes the timing and goal of an election investigation by the department. Prior Justice Department policy forswore seeking to reopen an election after it ended, and thus called for only covert investigative steps so as not to interfere with voting or the counting and certification process. Except when there was reason to think records might be destroyed corruptly or to further an ongoing scheme, the department was to avoid overt steps until “the election to which they pertain had been certified and the time for contesting the election results had expired.”

But Barr has changed the very goal of these investigations, explicitly authorizing actions before certifications, labeling the previous approach as “passive” and “delayed,” such that federal agents could not realistically “rectify” an election. Such rectification has not previously been a goal of federal enforcement by the elections branch. Yet now, Barr cryptically notes that he has already authorized such investigations.

Second, Barr lowers the threshold for opening an investigation, noting that even mere “irregularities” can be investigated — as opposed to only potential crimes. Shockingly, nowhere does he say that the allegations must rise to a criminal level. Until Monday, long-standing policy has explicitly held that noncriminal irregularities must be redressed through other means, such as recounts, educational programs, disciplinary actions and private lawsuits, most of which the federal government would have played no part in. But conveniently, as Trump pursues evidence-free claims of irregularities, Barr conspicuously fails to note a criminal threshold that prosecutors should be using to assess the propriety of pursuing cases. Now all the evidence needed is allegations that aren’t “specious, speculative, fanciful, or far-fetched” — bald adjectives that set a low bar that can be easily manipulated to justify opening an investigation.

Third, Barr takes pains to underscore the “inherent authority” of each of the 93 U.S. attorneys throughout the country to decide whether to open an investigation “as they deem appropriate,” without approval from the attorney general or the Justice Department’s career Public Integrity Section personnel in Washington. This approach, permitting disparate decision-making and evaluations, is in striking contrast with Barr’s approach to investigations involving political campaigns (which now require his approval) or any investigation involving Russian interference (which also requires central oversight and approval). One might think a responsible attorney general would seek greater oversight over the gatekeepers to such investigations, but this memo does the opposite, allowing many Trump appointees to make their own decisions on highly sensitive investigations throughout the country.

Some have tried to calm public anxiety by noting that the Justice Department could not conclude such investigations before states certify their elections in the weeks ahead. But that misses the point: The sum of these three parts is not intended to provide for a completed genuine or rigorous investigation. Barr’s new policy allows the Justice Department to lend credibility to false claims of election fraud by opening “preliminary inquiries” into such allegations in the coming days. Indeed, the memo encourages prosecutors to take this step: “It will likely be prudent to commence any election-related matters as a preliminary inquiry, so as to assess whether available evidence warrants further investigative steps,” Barr instructed his subordinates.

The predictable result is the launch of several Justice Department inquiries into allegations of “irregularities” with the electoral results that will, only months afterward and far too late, be proved false. Before the meritless nature of the investigations are discovered, the goal of the new policy can be achieved. The short-term effect may very well bolster the Trump campaign’s efforts to stop state election officials from certifying results, so as to encourage state legislators to select electors for Trump despite a Biden win, and more generally to cast doubt on the legitimacy of Biden’s victory in the mind of the unsuspecting public.

This isn’t a new tactic. Barr has engaged in manufacturing provable lies before — the type that “often takes time to uncover, and by that point, Barr may already have succeeded in his goal.”

It is no wonder that the top Justice Department official who oversees investigations of voter fraud, Richard Pilger, resigned Monday night after, in his words, “having familiarized myself with the new policy and its ramifications.” He would presumably not have done so or said so if the new policy was just in the realm of theatrics rather than a real and present threat.

Propaganda experts describe a disinformation strategy of releasing “a firehose of falsehood,” which the Barr policy appears designed to do. Those same experts advise providing the targets of disinformation with “raincoats” in advance. Here that means journalists covering the election and the public as well should know what to expect from Barr’s devious strategy. Barr, in explaining his disagreement with then-FBI Director James B. Comey’s 2016 conduct, testified during his confirmation hearing that federal law enforcement authorities should not take actions that could sway an election, since the incumbent party has its hands on the “levers of the law enforcement apparatus.” Now he has done just that, and in a systemic and deliberate way that is far worse than the rogue behavior Comey undertook. The next attorney general should revoke this policy, but in the meantime career officials must uphold their oaths of office not to undertake matters for political aims.
