    In official records, Mnuchin is listed as the official state point of contact for Next Management Corporation, a company formed in 1988 by modeling-industry insiders Jean-Luc Brunel and Arnaud Brunel. At the time, Jean-Luc Brunel had just been the subject of a 60 Minutes documentary accusing him of drugging and raping at least three models. Later, he would be accused by two women of supplying girls to Epstein to be sexually abused. (Brunel has denied the allegations.)
    Popular with that poor, oppressed base of Trumps.

    ofc.

    Its pretty clear that this form of capitalism, capitalism in general, or whatever your quibble is, has caused a fertile ground for reactionary politics around the world. Liberals have been powerless to stop it because they're unwilling to articulate why the standard of living is beginning to decline. What steps into that open space is nativism and revanchism.

    but I guess its easier to just shit your pants in a tantrum
    Liberals won’t articulate why the standard of living is declining because then they’d have to admit that liberal policies caused it.
    Except 90% of the people you slap with the label "Liberals" dont actually agree with some or all of those "liberal" policies.

    "Liberal" is used almost exclusively to refer to social liberals these days, not economic liberals.
    Thanks, Fox.

    More Nazi goodness:

    But on Thursday last week, Larson offered something a little different to his thousands of listeners: A detailed plan on how to “slaughter” scores of left wing activists in their sleep.

    The plan came from Shane Kohfield, who earlier this summer had his guns confiscated by the FBI and was briefly taken to a VA hospital after announcing a similar plan in front of the mayor of Portland’s house. Right Wing Watch flagged the interview on Monday.

    The squads, he said, would be given a list of addresses of “the most violent antifa members” and would work “until every one of them was gone in every city in America, if need be, in a single well-coordinated night.”
    Larson pressed again: What would be the plan for antifa members found sleeping in their beds, who pose no immediate threat to anyone?

    “Well, according to the plan, it would be kill,” Kohfield replied.

    Larson ended the interview soon after, thanking Kohfield for his service and his time.

    I'm curious where these geniuses get these lists of Antifa members from.

    Meanwhile, the list the left has of self professed Nazis is getting pretty long now. Building enough gulags to house all these morons alone will fill an entire five year plan!

    The standard of living is starting to decline because we don't need everyone to "go forth and multiply", but a lot of retards didn't get the message, and there is still a significant portion of the earths population who are stupid enough to think this is exactly what needs doing.

    But I guess it's easier to believe everyone who lies saying they can fix it, without dealing head on with the enemies of humanities future, which all of them are kowtowing to. But yes, these people surely have the solution.
    Birth rates are declining around the world. They're still ridiculously high in places like Africa compared to the West, but the trend has been population is finally leveling off, but I agree that we're going to feel the backlash from a still growing population for a few decades.

    This seems like a good place to start.

    That's about a million places down in the weirdness list of British culture.

    Sounds like just the type of thing a closet fascist would say.

    Yeah but on the flip side in the UK (25+yr old) adults dont drink shots and get blackout drunk. And men are allowed to dance in clubs.

    Also pub food is actually good in London. It's only shit up north
    We have Wetherspoons in the North as well you know.

    Twitter, mostly. Remember reading a post by an Antifa member who had Proud Boys (clad in body armor and motorcycle helmets) come to her home in Philly and mark it with stickers. They did the same to other people and the police did nothing.

    Shame they are all represented by political parties built around economic liberalism and excessive whining when a change in economic tack is suggested.

    Pub food is generally pretty awful imo. As in most pubs with food are the standard chain pub with a microwave and burger grill. Finding that nice home cooked pub place is a fucking treat though.
    +25s dont get blackout drunk on shots? In what Britain do you drink in?
    Meatloaf? In ENLAND? never once seen such abominations. Classic pub food would be pie and mash, or fish and chips, or sunday roast or whatever. But meatloaf?
    WTF is going on

    Meatloaf and mash and gravy would be the US equivalent of Pie and Mash, probably. It's more of a diner thing than a pub thing though. My local pub makes great burgers and cheesesteaks, so, idk.
