Trump was right about the EU reliance on Russian energy and a lack of investments in the military.
Even the Germans now realize the collosal mistake they made by not listening to Trump.

The call is now going out for the US to greatly increase their energy production to make the EU less reliant on Russian gas.
After all if the US uses more nuclear energy, more gas and other resources are left to be exported to Europe.
Of course Europe should also abandon their failed solar energy plans and wind turbines and start building nuclear plants again.
Germans shouldn't have shut all their coal mines down.

Australia has plenty of coal, they can buy from us.

Coal miners make a fortune here. Especially if they have specialist skills.

Trump, who was impeached for withholding nearly $400 million in military aid from Ukraine, said 'this deadly Ukraine situation would never have happened' if he were in office.

“I sent her a white flag,” he said of former Chancellor Angela Merkel. “She said, ‘What is this?’ I said, ‘It’s a flag of surrender so you don’t have to go out and buy a new one.’”

Quote
“If you move against Ukraine while I’m president,” Trump is said to have told the Russian leader, “I will hit Moscow.”

Putin reportedly scoffed, “No way,” leading Trump to say, “All those beautiful golden turrets will be blown up.”

In fact Joe Biden is so weak that the Russian army is falling apart smh  :tocry

At CPAC Trump is praising Ukraine and their President and only calls Putin 'smart' in relation to NATO.
Also claims credit for the Javelin's he provided that they are now using to blow up the Russian tanks.
And thus the most pro-Putin speaker they have now is Tulsi? :idont

Doesn't the FCC solely operate under the 'obscenity' exclusion of the First Amendment?  "I hate black people tv" may actually be considered under the profane clause?  But I'm thinking it's actually allowable, but I don't know for certain, actually.

Judging by the wank-dad sphere, most TV already is "I hate white people TV", so I guess it would be only fair.

No, the FCC has power to regulate broadcast because the limited broadcast spectrum is "owned" by the public and absent this it cannot do anything. The FCC does not regulate cable and especially not cable content. There is no "approval to operate" the FCC has to grant or not grant for anyone's I Hate Black People cable network, it is literally not within their purview. Pam has apparently never read any legal precedents but feels confident enough that her feelings are reality to lecture others to do so.

Also, the old obscenity "exception" has pretty much been voided by Supreme Court, the government cannot prosecute you for obscenity without violating the First Amendment.

To add further, Fox News has never claimed to be "entertainment" as a defense in court and even if it had "collateral estoppel" (which is not actually a thing anyway) does not apply since even "entertainment" is protected by the First Amendment. There is no special First Amendment protection for "the press" or "news" as Pam (and many many others) claims, those protections are open to anyone who publishes. All of this is aside from the fact that even if Tucker Carlson were to literally say he hopes Putin wins in Ukraine it's not "seditious treason" as Ukraine is not the United States, the United States is not at war with Russia, and it's not sedition or treason anyway to say you hope your country loses a war. That is still protected by the First Amendment. Treason is defined very narrowly and specifically in the Constitution, the government cannot simply prosecute you for opposing its war policies. The Supreme Court failed when it said otherwise (the famous case of "fire in a crowded theater" which the Court did not say was an exception to the First Amendment even in that case) and has since revoked its approval of this position anyhow. I'm so tired.

It takes less than 20 seconds of reading to find out what Collateral Estoppel is, and she's wrong. How do people like this pass the bar. Isn't it supposed to be hard?

Law school is relatively easy, PhD's in the soft sciences are much harder to achieve than JD's. Law school is a lot of temporary memorization. The LSAT's, which you need to get accepted to law school in the first place, have a far higher failure rate than the bar exam does.

Once you start practicing you're not expected to actually remember the law's specifics, you're expected to look up the law and how it applies to your case, relying on your memory can be ineffective counsel. Pam's refusal to even Wikipedia any First Amendment cases would not bode well for her clients except for the likely fact that she's probably mostly abandoned practice for her continued attempts at the Senate and House in Congress as she rises higher in the Florida Democratic Party.
