'Moon Jae In: "Trump can have the Nobel prize; all we need is peace"'

http://v.media.daum.net/v/20180430165257800?rcmd=rn

Stupid shit cuckservatives pretending like Trump actually did anything. The South Korean president basically admitted he's just sucking up to Trump publically but did it in his own language so Western Press (and most importantly Fox News) wouldn't pick up on it.

ROFLMAO how fucking retarded Obaminated and Forwyn are.

still a solid idea. That price does not mean anything, but it would mean a lot to donald's ego. Maybe he won't sabotage any fragile peace, if he is all proud of his new peacemaker rep

as expected, Trump more concerned with the spectacle than the results:

"Numerous countries are being considered for the MEETING, but would Peace House/Freedom House, on the Border of North & South Korea, be a more Representative, Important and Lasting site than a third party country? Just asking!"

nice to know he's making decisions based on the millions of Russian & Chinese bots tweeting him

Hey guys, remember when Barack Obama earned himself a Nobel Peace Prize nine months into his first term because Norwegians were absolutely infatuated with the young articulate black man that year? Compared to that, Trump should win at least three or four Nobels for this.

"Hey guys, remember when Barack Obama earned himself a Nobel "

hence the "That price does not mean anything".

I see in the news that Bibi natanyahu is promising to reveal something about the iran nuclear program today, i presume this will be something about Iran cheating. It is imperative to award Donald the peace price, the sooner the better. Who knows it just might prevent him from warring

Cuckhat is really upset that an alpha who swings his dick around is winning and accomplishing things.

cr - I see in the news that Bibi netanyahu is promising to reveal something about the iran nuclear program today...

Yeah, his intelligence agents stole 100,000 secret Iranian documents that prove they are still working on nukes in violation of the agreement.

“his intelligence agents stole 100,000 secret Iranian documents that prove they are still working on nukes in violation of the agreement. ”

Point me to the relevant details in Bibi revelations today, where is says that Iran is not abiding by the JPOA, Rod.

"
According to Nobel's will, the Peace Prize shall be awarded to the person who in the preceding year "shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses".
"


doesn't sound like Trump... who insults our allies, threatens others, boasts about increasing our military, and said diplomacy was a waste of time

kinda the opposite really

The year before Obama got the Prize all he did was lie to The American People so he could be the president.

So he could lie some more.

The new fake news age tests the IQ of people. Many, perhaps more than 30% of the population simply lack no ability to discern between good sources of information and bad.

I present to you a prime example above.

Did you know that about 30% of millennials absolutely believe that the world is flat?

I would bet a nickel that you are one of them.

The Nobel Peace Prize for 2009

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama's vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.

Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play. Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations. Thanks to Obama's initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.

Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world's population.

For 108 years, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has sought to stimulate precisely that international policy and those attitudes for which Obama is now the world's leading spokesman. The Committee endorses Obama's appeal that "Now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges."

Claim: "Did you know that about 30% of millennials absolutely believe that the world is flat?"

Fact(s): No, One-Third of Millennials Don't Actually Think Earth Is Flat

Give the internet some weird statistic on millennials and it's gonna have a field day with it. Like this latest one: "a third of millennials believe the Earth is flat".

Except it's not, and they don't.

Here's what happened: in February, the online polling company YouGov conducted a survey on American beliefs about our planet's shape.
"Do you believe that the world is round or flat," the 8,215 participants were asked, and given a small range of answers to choose from:

I have always believed the world is round;

I always thought the world is round, but more recently I am skeptical/have doubts;

I always thought the world is flat, but more recently I am skeptical/have doubts;

I have always believed the world is flat;
Other/Not sure.

The results, weighted to be representative of the US population, revealed that 2 percent of adult Americans are firmly convinced Earth is as flat as a pancake.

Meanwhile, 84 percent "have always believed the world is round."

So far, so good. For further insight, the results were also broken up by age group, and this is where young millennials got an unexpected bashing.
As per the results, only 66 percent of 18-24 year-olds are firmly convinced of our planet's spherical shape.

But that doesn't automatically mean the other third thinks it's flat. Here's the actual breakdown of the data by age group: GRAPH in link

http://www...iracy-statistics-yougov-debunk

As you can see, only 4 percent in the youngest age group expressed flat-Earther convictions, and a further 14 percent showed skepticism in either direction.

Not to mention a whole 16 percent who simply ticked the "other/not sure" box.

Before you decry that last stat as the state of young people's education (how can they not know!?), keep in mind - other YouGov polls of Americans have found that 13 percent of those young folks don't even know what feelings they have about salad, and 20 percent don't know what they think of romantic breakups.

There could be so many reasons for choosing the "other" box, including not really caring or not thinking about Earth's shape, and simply wanting to get through the survey to cash in those reward points.

As for the 4 percent of young flat-Earthers unearthed in the data - there's no way of telling how truthful they were being, and whether they just wanted to mess with the researchers when they saw the amusing study question.
Besides, the 18 to 24 group isn't even the only millennial set in this poll.

According to the latest generational cutoff point designated by Pew Research, the oldest millennials right now are actually 37 years old.
All this is not to say that pancake Eartherism is not enjoying a bit of a heyday right now.

There are indications that American interest in the flat-Earth movement is on the rise, but it's tricky to say how much of that is because they're laughing at it, not with it.

Californian Mike Hughes with his amateur rocket stunts and rapper B.o.B. with a wacky crowdfunding campaign have certainly garnered a lot of attention online, but the vast majority of humans don't take them seriously.

But if you still want to be upset about something, consider this: a 'round Earth' can still be flat, like a disk. Maybe YouGov should have asked whether Earth is spherical?

You can read more about the poll results here.

RESULT: Hot Rod's claim is false and chalk it up for another false claim made by Hot Rod.
