  1. Today
  2. Again, no. You may need to re-read what you quoted because it's nothing to do with Trump's response.
  3. Ok, so what about https://thedonald.win/search?params=david+dorn ?
  4. So something posted yesterday like this?
  5. It turns out their desire to protect their country from tyranny doesn't stretch to what they incorrectly deem as black issues. If they were being honest, they would admit they only want guns for their personal protection and have been using the second amendment as a convenient excuse, but when push comes to shove the application of rights in defence of others means nothing to them. The lawyer is right, Trump had armed agents violently clear a peaceful protest for a photo opportunity, but it's Trump and "lol libs got owned" so it's crickets from the gun nuts. Meanwhile, innocent people are having to deal with the poisonous element hiding amongst the legitimate protestors. There are videos of unarmed women deterring looters, standing in the way of businesses being targetted. So did David Dorn, a 77 year old retired police captain who was shot by looters as he tried to protect his neighbourhood, and he was black. Could do with a few rifle-toting flag-wavers in those cases, but I guess they're having trouble finding the courage.
  6. There's something deeper going on with these riots other than the usual MSM bullshit of "peaceful protesters". There's been reports of piles of bricks that happen to appear in the route of the "protestors" ( https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8377069/Bricks-randomly-appear-protests-sparking-theories-planted-stoke-violence.html ) and provocateurs that turn the (formerly) peaceful protests violent ( https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/evidence-of-provocateurs-in-dallas-protests/2380324/ ) along with evidence of out-of-staters joining the fray in the riots ( https://www.statesman.com/zz/news/20200602/officials-blame-out-of-state-agitators-but-those-at-heart-of-protests-are-homegrown ). Even governors are claiming that some of the riots are "coordinated, criminal attacks". What makes this even more suspect is the (now deleted image likely after the poster realized it was crossposted on thedonald.win ) on the Antifa subreddit (archived at http://archive.vn/BfijW ) describing the roles in protests including roles specifically intended for arson and using laser pointers to obstruct/blind cameras and/or police. It's basically using some aspects of fourth generation warfare https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourth-generation_warfare , if not that's what's going on. Even Governor Cuomo realizes the need for the National Guard What sucks the most are the front line cops that are basically stuck in a meat grinder because their upper command structure is incompetent/willfully neglectful, which is why you have letters from associations of former and current NYPD sergeants like: And the greater irony to this is that the incidents in many of the major cities (which are also Democrat controlled btw), don't make it onto the MSM, for example: There's more going on here than the so-called "peaceful protests", and all it's doing is giving people two choices.... either the red pill or the giant red suppository and also...

    Ha-Ha

    That's a hell of a "reduction".
  8. This man does as well. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/james-mattis-denounces-president-trump-describes-him-as-a-threat-to-the-constitution/ar-BB14ZPey?li=BBnb7Kz “Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us,” Mattis writes. “We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. We can unite without him, drawing on the strengths inherent in our civil society. This will not be easy, as the past few days have shown, but we owe it to our fellow citizens; to past generations that bled to defend our promise; and to our children.” With the flames of division being fanned by our Moron and Chief, the polarization is near a tipping point analogous to watching the Statue of Liberty falling over. It would be a monumentous task to rebuild the idea of liberty, but if it must be so, then let be so. With that said, this governor's timing couldn't be worse. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/virginia-governor-to-announce-removal-of-lee-statue/ar-BB14ZLWv?li=BBnb7Kz This statue and others like it found throughout southern states have long been controversial. It was not but a few years ago, protest on both sides of the issue brought guns and other weapons as a show of Constitutional rights to places like Charlottesville Virginia. Confrontations ending with injured people and one death. As far as I know the fate of this particular statue has already been decide by the courts in Virginia, so I'm not sure how this governor can play a role. Also there are Federal statutes already in place relating to historical statues from the US's history. Basically they are federally protected until the Congress of the United States changes the current laws. What I do know is every Right wing extremist is going to go apeshit if the statue gets warehoused. The internet and the Boogaloo movement kind of insures this will not go well. So, It isn't looking good and the near future makes it look potentially more volatile. Americans have enough to deal with. A virus killing more than 100,000 people. Over 30 million unemployed. Unstable supply chains. Daily protests where people with ill intent using them as cover to create violence. Law enforcement being shackled by poor choices and causing the undermining of the liberties they are meant to protect. Media focusing on violence instead of sensibly reporting news. Hyper partisan news channels further enabling the divide. And then, as if it couldn't be any worse, we have a coward child sitting in the highest seat of the US doing what ever impulse he has for self preservation. Well, one way or another this will all come to pass, and I don't see the current President making it to the swearing in ceremony next January.
  9. Yesterday
  10. The first time I read the linked page, I saw no code. Apparently it was changed and when I linked it above, I didn't read it a second time. Thank You
  11. https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthread.php?680590-Take-the-game-down-immediately&p=8012410#post8012410
  12. I wholeheartedly agree with this man. A lawyer who always tries to show both sides of an argument. What happened at Lafayette, beating, gassing and shooting peaceful protesters (including the fucking priest in charge of that church!), just so Trump could get a photo op.. where are second amendment goons now? This is _precisely_ what the second amendment was for.
  13. Hmm, odd. Then why the heck would Mr Fake News himself not dispute the claims? To be honest, this AP link is the only site that claims the lights were on that I can find. Most other news sites (including Fox) show the lights out.
  14. I dont think they have released the code yet, just the announcement of it
  15. I read it from a news reporter that cover the White House. Lights off at 11pm. Also, the photo shown is from 5 years ago. https://apnews.com/afs:Content:8983690810
  16. A lot of talk on the OF about a free code to redeem old content and yet I've seen no code listed on the forums. So I'm curious how the players know what the code is. https://lotro.com/en/friendsforever We would also like to provide a way for you to move forward with your gaming when our event eventually comes to an end, so in the coming days we will be providing a Coupon Code that will let you acquire all currently-available quest packs permanently on your account(s)! However, you will need to act quickly, as this Coupon Code is available to redeem through August 31st, 2020. SSG could have posted the code in the link above, but I guess they want players to play catch the code game.
  17. Last week
  18. Trump reminds me of the du Pont guy, in the late nineties, from Pennsylvania. He turned all the lights off in his mansion while under siege from the police. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_du_Pont There is a lot of similarities between the two on how millionaires living in isolation slowly become mentally disconnected.
  19. That was according to one of Trump's spokespeople. The lights typically remain on through the night, with an exception for the death of a president. If they had said "we turned off the lights to coincide with the curfew", it might have been a reasonable argument. This one was just nonsense.
  20. Not a lot of Hobbit on Hobbit fighting
  21. I am not sure about PvP being antiTolkienesque. One of his main themes is civil wars, the kin strife, the Kinslayings, Arthedain vs Cardolan vs Rhudaur. None of the participants in these is portrayed as purely evil.
  22. PvP seems a bit of an order of magnitude or two different than High Elf players. Not sure who will do this. Or, what happens if you don't join a brothers' faction? Capped at 10 unless you join?
  23. I read that the lights get turned off at 11pm every night. Not sure if that is true but this could be a big nothing burger.
  24. Here's the pic doing the rounds: Apparently, protestors turned up to the gates of the White House, and Trump had all the lights turned off. As someone so aptly put it, like a house on Halloween that doesn't want the kids to knock because they've got no candy (or Bojo going into a fridge to escape cameras). Not a good look, as they say nowadays. People turn up to show their anger, and the president hides away in his bunker hoping they'll leave. Doesn't exactly show strength of character or leadership, at a time when he could be using this to try to turn people around (or at least away from Biden). As usual, all talk but nothing to back it up. It also suggests their defences are pretty weak if a bunch of protestors storming the building is a valid threat.
  25. Seems to be things are getting less strict now that Christopher Tolkien is out of the picture and they were already pretty lax before, what with living dragons, elk mounts, High Elf players, Beornings, etc. Whatever rule was in place at the beginning was slowly tiptoed away from over the years with each new lore-breaking change. That, or the years of claiming we were never allowed were a lie. I still think this has come far too late. The days of avid PvPers in LotRO ended a long time ago, hell it was dying while I was still on it during RoR. Even early on the Limited Servers, those of us who were begging to get the Ettens opened were few and far between, and the sparring fight club that was set up only really had a dozen or so people in it (which ended pretty quick because it was so unbalanced that a burg with all teal essence gear could nuke opponents in a couple of seconds). The sorts of whales that usually prop the game up weren't fans of PvP to begin with, either, so not sure who they're catering to. Any bets on what other gimmick servers they'll open? Perma-death servers, no level servers, hard-mode servers, no mob servers, man-only servers, chicken/animal servers? If they don't do a zombie server, they're missing a trick.
  26. Right.. and done with this conspiracy theory bullshit. If you want to discuss the tensions at the Chino-Indian border, feel free to open a new topic. Without bringing up the protests in the US over the murder of a restrained black man by a man with a badge this time. Without linking it to the COVID-19 pandemic.
