    Weiss and Maher are similar in that both fall on the liberal end of the spectrum, but they discombobulate many liberals because of beliefs they might express on a single or handful of topics.

    If someone like Maher or Weiss says, or writes, that Donald Trump is the greatest threat to Democracy seen to date, and the devil incarnate, but then the next day expresses the opinion Brett Kavanaugh is a perfectly fine choice for Supreme Court justice, some people can't wrap their minds around it. They'll say things like "Maher was fine, until ...." It's like Maher or Weiss had a conversion, or something, when in fact they might just have views on two subjects, one of which you completely agree with, and one of which you think is crazy.
    Not really. Maher even admits he is to the right of where Dems are...he just doesn't like being called a bougie centrist which he is. Where he runs afoul of most of us is his stance on Islam or how he thinks comedians get canceled. Even in the face of real facts he just doesn't budge. Oh and his Anti Doctor nonsense...but he always was that way it's why he thinks he is a libertarian.

    He shows his true colors when he goes on shows like Megyn Kelly (who book him on his Woke stance) and he spends the while time saying the right wingers like her are nuts.

    Bari Weiss is a sellout who holds her religion above the rights of others. She is no better than Christian Nationalists. She also realized she had little future in mainstream media so she embraced new media hoping (like Matt Taibbi) that she could find a niche there. She got in bed with clowns like Musk and then lost what little credibility she had with any liberals. Then she decided to go with the outrage machine instead to try and make money. She is just Russel Brand with less reach.

    Very few expect agreement on alm issues, it's the issues you die on a hill for that define you though.

You couldn't pay me to read her crap or listen to her lies. I am pretty sure she has been accused of flat out making quotes up in the past.

    Yeah, I mean, YouTube never claims to be something you use in case of an emergency.

    "We're all Soviets now" facetiously opines man who wouldn't have been afforded an opinion column in the USSR's press.

    Why? Because Joe Biden and the DC establishment are old?

    Shortages? I can walk into a grocery store right now and buy hundreds of dollars worth of produce from all over the globe, and basically any meats I want. Try doing that at Moscow Mart in 1990.

    Bloated military? US military spending hasn't topped 4% of our GDP since 2012 and you'd have to go back to the Cold War to find it higher than 5%. Could we likely spend less? You bet. But let's not pretend this is a "guns or butter" decision where 15+% of our entire economy is based on warfare and military empire like it was for the USSR.

    I'm not even going to address the polling Rasmussen ran, I'm sure they framed/pushed it to give the right scary stats about the (((IVY LEAGUE GLOBALIST ELITES)))!1!!11!! and their new world order, or whatever.

    Any article opening with how proud someone is to have Niall Ferguson, one of the ****tiest writers I've ever read, joining tells you a lot.
