    Strictly speaking, the presidency doesn't have as much power as people, including the current president, seem to think that it does.

    Yes, but really, no. The Presidency has as much power as the other two branches of government are willing to allow it. Fighting over that takes time, and was supposed to put the three branches in a constant power struggle. Unfortunately, the framers didn't account for an effective system of preventing widespread corruption within a dominating political party to render that conflict effectively nonexistent. Especially not one that takes into account the speed at which communication can now take place, and the associated spread of information and disinformation. They rather assumed sufficient integrity in public servants to prevent the need for such measures while simultaneously warning the American people against allowing such a scenario to occur...

    Well, Singapore is also a democracy, but they also have pretty tight control over the people and not as free as well.

    Can't read Spanish, so care to share what Pedro Sánchez did?

    Thing is, apart from anarchy, democracy is the "freest" form of government, there is.

    By our constitution, the PM cannot declare an State of Alarm for more than 30 days, requiring reauthorization for extensions at the end of each period. Sanchez was able to secure support for a SIX MONTH version of the same restrictive lockdown without needing to go through the constitutional motions.

    The only state that allows for this kind of stuff is an State of Siege, which is way bigger deal than alarm and would almost certainly get thrown him out of The Moncloa.

    Hmm, I guess he must be using Covid-19 as the reason for this action. Pretty surprise he managed to secure that much support though. How are you guys faring, consider the recent spike in numbers?

    Alleged Laptop Leaker Claims China Offered Mulan Star Liu Yifei To Hunter Biden As “Sex Bribe” - Bounding Into Comics

    Spencer Baculi October 28, 2020 Celebrity

    A leaker who claims to be in possession of the contents stored on Hunter’s Biden laptop has alleged that the Chinese government offered Mulan star Liu-Yifei to the former Vice President’s son as a “sex-bribe.”

    As initially reported by Disney Star Wars Is Dumb, Wang Ding Gang, better known as Lude, has been a prominent figure in the ongoing saga of Hunter Biden’s purported laptop.

    A Chinese dissident and eponymous founder of the YouTube news channel LUDE Media, Lude has spent the month of October leaking documents and information he claims to have obtained from the reputed laptop.

    In an October 26th video, while discussing an image allegedly taken from a CCP hidden camera depicting Hunter Biden smoking crack cocaine, Lude asserted that the image also depicted another person “lighting the crack for him.”

    “Now who is this somebody?” Lude asked rhetorically. “Surprisingly, she is Liu Yifei, the actress who played Mulan.”

    Lude then insinuates that the actress is connected to the Chinese government through a man named Zhang Hongwei, whom “manages money and connections for Liu Yifei” and “has a very close relationship with Xi Jiping and Wang Huning.”

    While Lude did not explicitly state on the livestream that the CCP offered the actress as a bribe, on his Parler account, Lude subsequently ‘echoed’ (the platform equivalent of a retweet) a post that stated “The Chinese Communist Part (CCP) used Liu Yifei, a famous Chinese movie star (who plays Mulan in the Mulan movie) to sex-bribe Hunter Biden.”
    Look, I'm not saying this is true, and "Disney Star Wars is Dumb" as a choice of name miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight be a sliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight sign of a corporate axe to swing, but even so, when you think this year can't get any weirder, you then have accusations of Mulan being offered as a sex toy to the son of an US presidential candidate.

    Speaking of Mulan, the movie did pretty badly in China since it is seen as pandering to the West, and it also did poorly globally since many believed that it is propaganda from China. Pretty amusing IMO.

    Why would China care about some second-rate fanfic version of the story, they have about a billion adaptations of Mulan already, and a lot of them are, I am told, loads better.

    Mainly because of the reason you stated. We have seen many good adaptations of Mulan, so the newest movie is pretty meh in comparison and not worth the money. Some believe it is pandering to western audience and values. Strange stuff like these.

    Yes well, the so called "opposition" party didn't oppose a motion to replace the sitting government or at least schedule another election in the future. Now it's facing collapse.

    Also, I'm no longer there and neither are folks and family. We all booked the hell out when it became obvious we had a POS government.
