Leakers for thee but not for us.
*shrugs*

When it comes to stuff which is meant to be kept behind closed doors a leak is bad for you and good for them regardless of who you and they are.

Had he been a Republican mentioning a GOP colleague leaking private things I'm pretty sure you would wish very unpleasant things be done to the source of the leak.

You REALLY don't know us here lol.

No, no. If we get some leaks that show someone's shady behavior, interparty fighting, betrayal, etc...we don't GIVE A FUCK what letter is by their name.

I don't know the whole story, but my understanding is that TS was founded after some less than on the up-and-up SB backstage stuff went public and a bunch of people got banned from SB for it.

EDIT: The way I heard it there was a very large PM of "here's how to make someone you disagree with eat an infraction without getting dinged for one in the process" started by a mod.

Actually no, TS was founded after a certain individual, hoping to drive traffic to their own site (not TS) managed to get their hands on a pair of PM threads on SB involving conservatives and some mods. When they couldn't find anything actionable in the threads themselves, they used photoshop to fake it up. Then, with the connivance of leftist mods and admins on SB created a shit storm.

As a consequence, TS was formed, where that sort of shit won't fly. The rest is history.

Now back to our regularly scheduled commentary on Jill Biden and Kamala Harris's puppet presidency!

@LordSunhawk gave a brief but very accurate summary above me.

Most of us weren't banned, but left voluntarily. I still have an account there, but will never post again.

But anyways, I used to be a full blown lefty and so did a few of our members.

We aren't just party shills. Many of us DON'T CARE what letter is by your name. We want corruption to be exposed, and we have been calling for a purge of the GOP swamp creatures for a long time.
So if a similar leak came out from the GOP, we would NOT have the same reaction as the lefties would.

More than likely, we would cheer on the leaker and call for the ousting of the swamp creatures.

Preach it, my friends.

Thanks for the clarification. I wasn't around for that and heard it via a game of telephone from someone who heard about it second hand on SV.

It goes both ways and I like to hear what's going on behind the scenes.

I want both of them to leak their secrets for us to see.

This is 4th or 5th time staff have had to come in and prune completely off topic material from this thread or deal with a massive derail. Going forward, before you post something, please make the effort to ensure that whatever you're saying is directly related to the actions, proposals, or policies of the Biden Administration. If one of these massive derails happens again, we are going to start removing people from the thread per Rule 2F.

I think part of the problem is megathreads in general.

People aren't sure if they should create a new thread and instead they post it to a megathread, and the conversation goes where it goes.

These are the pains of managing a mega thread.

It's not that hard to click a few buttons and separate stuff out for a new thread If you need to.

If that's too much work for the moderator staff on this not very active board, perhaps you should consider a few new moderators who won't mind doing that sort of thing?

Breaking: Lights at Bagram Airbase Turned On – Chinese Military Planes Reportedly Seen Landing at Abandoned US Airbase in Afghanistan


China military planes reportedly landed at Bagram Airbase in Afghanistan. This is after Biden abandoned the base in its hasty surrender of the country.

For the first time since Joe Biden and General Milley withdrew all US forces from Bagram Air Base and left the Taliban with billions in US military weapons, the lights at Bagram were turned on last night.

Local witnessed several military planes, reportedly from China, landing and taking off from the base last night.

@natiqmalikzada


The lights at Bagram Military Airport, where it was the main base for US military for 20 years, after nearly two months are on tonight. No information who is there, and why the lights are on tonight after nearly two months... —— CHINA???

Joe Biden withdrew all US forces from Afghanistan and Bagram Air Base and now China is reportedly landing its planes there.

There has NEVER been a greater military blunder in US history.


The Daily Mail is reporting:

There have been multiple reports of military planes arriving at Bagram airbase in Afghanistan, just hours after images emerged showing that power was restored to the base for the first time since US forces evacuated the stronghold in July.
Images circulating on social media appear to show the airbase’s floodlights blazing in the distance, amid reports that several military planes have taken off and landed at the base in recent hours.
Several sources suggest that the aircraft are Chinese, given the Taliban are not thought to possess the expertise needed to power the base or maintain and fly several military aircraft.
The Taliban rejected rumors China was at the former US base:

There are other reports of China meeting with the Taliban.

Meanwhile, the Taliban is rounding up individuals suspected of being attached to the former regime or the US and torturing them.

Well, looks like the swamp-critters failed the withdraw on purpose.
You do know this would have happened even if we didn't fail the withdrawal right? With China moving in, and even if we held Bagram, they would use Kabul, and then build their own.
