ATM, I think Europe's answer to America should be "kiss my butt". :-)
I think the Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, wouldn't be so explicit:)

Luckily there are some like Jens and in the NATO command that are sensible.
Yes. Even some Americans. If not fired by Trump that is...

That would be the appropriate response to President Gump.

That or " Could you please put an adult on the phone?"

Believing that today's American people will go to war against a Russian land invasion of the Baltic States or Eastern Europe, is not warranted.
Quite agree. However, you cannot show anywhere on these threads where anyone has stated that they should.

Tut tut Clyde, at least refer to "correct" info. Your 1st was referring to European troops dying for America.
The 2nd link was referring to Article 5 of NATO. It does not show where anyone on these boards saying Americans should die for Europe.

You didn't really think that I would not check your links? Tut tut.

What we have is a combination Pro Trump, Anti Democrat Party and Anti Radical Left.

Believing that the Democrat Party's Leadership and the Radical Left are as bad if not worse than Trump. Is not an unreasonable belief.

Excepting to those who believe that those they disagree with are ignorant, stupid, a low life, etc.

They are the real problem in attempting to have an intelligent discussion regarding disagreements.

Especially in Social Media. Where the thugs, bullies, name callers, et al have taken over the discussion.

Brainwashed ...
http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/04/i-gathered-stories-of-people-transformed-by-fox-news.html
[quote]Last week, I devoted an installment of my newsletter Welcome to Hell World to a dozen stories from people who, like me, had close relationships that had been strained or ruined by family members who’d become obsessed with Fox News.

No matter where the stories came from they all featured a few familiar beats: A loved one seemed to have changed over time. Maybe that person was already somewhat conservative to start. Maybe they were apolitical. But at one point or another, they sat down in front of Fox News, found some kind of deep, addictive comfort in the anger and paranoia, and became a different person — someone difficult, if not impossible, to spend time with. The fallout led to failed marriages and estranged parental relationships. For at least one person, it marks the final memory he’ll ever have of his father: “When I found my dad dead in his armchair, f*****n Fox News was on the TV,” this reader told me. “It’s likely the last thing he saw. I hate what that channel and conservative talk radio did to my funny, compassionate dad. He spent the last years of his life increasingly angry, bigoted, and paranoid.”{/quote]

The manipulator offers you a number of choices, but the choices all lead to the same conclusion.
The same idea or phrase is frequently repeated to make sure it sticks in your brain.
Intense intelligence-dampening is performed by providing you with constant short snippets of information on various subjects. This trains you to have a short memory, makes the amount of information feel overwhelming, and the answers provided by the manipulator to be highly desired due to how overwhelmed you feel.
Emotional manipulation is used to put you in a heightened state, as this makes it harder for you to employ logic. Inducing fear and anger are among the most popular manipulated emotions.

Fox news is to v2.0 as Russian news is to Putin.

Plenty of news from an alternate reality.

All the follower's and believer's of Fox, CNN, MSNBC, etc. are living in their own "alternate reality".

They are very, very sad.

Now I'm not going to go searching way back so I'll re-post instead.

Prevalence and predictors of fake news dissemination on Facebook

Overall, sharing articles from fake news domains was a rare activity. We find some evidence that the most conservative users were more likely to share this content—the vast majority of which was pro-Trump in orientation—than were other Facebook users, although this is sensitive to coding and based on a small number of respondents. Our most robust finding is that the oldest Americans, especially those over 65, were more likely to share fake news to their Facebook friends. This is true even when holding other characteristics—including education, ideology, and partisanship—constant. No other demographic characteristic seems to have a consistent effect on sharing fake news, making our age finding that much more notable.
And you can tell from their pages that they are certainly angry. ;-)

Did the Author's of the referenced article include the fake Trump/Russia Collision belief and hysteria by those under 65 in their definition of "fake news dissemination"?

Another example of Never Trump Fake News:

Trump: The Art of the Comeback
Published October 27th 1997 by Crown Business
Trump's story begins when many real estate moguls went belly-up in what he calls the Great Depression of 1990.

Add that the present day lying NY Times headlined back in 1995 calling Trump 'the comeback kid' from his loses.

Therefore, the lying Never Trump Media lying that Trumps loses back then were covered up by Trump and no one, including them, knew about it. Is another Fake News story assaulting any belief in their 'News".

Yep, the Never Trump News Media and their believer's are bonkers!

NZ Herald - Copy of WaPo - 'We are outgunned': Top AI researchers race to detect 'deepfake' videos

Following up on the fake "Nancy drunk" video, AI experts admit they are unable to keep up and that any humiliating videos of politicians in the race for the 2020 election should be treated with caution and checked before liking, copying or linking on social media.

I read the same article. Referencing Journalism News and not Social Media.

They better double check, triple check and quadruple check before showing any video they didn't take that was sent to them or they come across.

What is the solution? I haven't a guess.
