AND

You agree that if any clause or component of this document is found to not be legally binding in a court of law of proper jurisdiction then the remainder of this document shall remain fully binding and in full force.

AND

You agree to NOT hold Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd. (makers of the forum software), uspoliticsonline.com, sites affiliated with uspoliticsonline.com, its administrators, its moderators, others associated with its operation, and its owners liable for any and all of the following (in whole or in part):

You are prohibited from using your real name on these forums, either as your username or in posts / PMs you write.

FORUM RULES, IN ADDITION TO THE DISCLAIMER

1. These rules apply to all sections of USPOL, including public and private forums, blogs, and visitor messages.

2. You cannot attack and/or personally insult someone. You cannot bait other forum members; this includes referring to posters by derogatory terms. Please, remain courteous and respectful to all forum members at all times. You agree to take responsibility for reporting such posts when you come across them. Please, use the ignore feature if need be. Any member who intentionally and continually posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response, or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, may be regarded as a troll by staff, and have their account suspended or banned.

3. You cannot harass (sexually or otherwise) other members. This includes malicious, slanderous, or defamatory comments. If you are not sure if something you write is inappropriate or not then don't say it. Err on the side of caution.

4. Copying and Pasting Articles, and Starting New Threads. You cannot simply cut and paste in posts or when starting threads. You MUST provide the identifying information (source, author, date, and URL). You must also offer some original thoughts along with the cut and paste. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts from the article. Excerpts really shouldnt be more then a paragraph or two. Furthermore, if you use images or other copyrighted material in your posts or signature you must have permission of the copyright holder unless you know for a fact that the image is in the public domain. In addition:
a. It must include the identifying information; e.g., where available, the author, the publication, the date, the URL.
b. The member must offer some context, including: How did you hear of this article? What is your opinion? Why is it important to you? Why should it be important to forum readers? The more context you provide, the more you assist others in gauging the excerpted information's significance.
c. You may copy and paste an excerpt or series of excerpts, not the whole thing or even the majority of the whole thing to encourage people to read the entire article.

A violation of any of the above will result in the deletion or closing of the post or thread and could earn you a warning or suspension. If you have any questions concering any of the above please PM a moderator and we will be happy to clarify.

5. You cannot post the same thing in multiple forums. You must not open similar threads about the same or a similar topic. You cannot spam the board or send unsolicited messages to members via PM, email or any other means.

6. Do not post off-topic. You cannot derail a thread with off topic posts.

7. You cannot shout in posts. This includes posting in all CAPS, bold, lIkE tHiS, and extra large font. Posts should also be one color, although you may use an additional color for highlighting ideas you wish to address.

8. You may not alter quotes in a way that misrepresents what was originally said.

9. Multiple accounts are not allowed. If you are found to have more than one account all accounts will be permanently terminated.

10. You cannot have a user name, avatar, signature, or post images that are deliberately offensive. That includes the display of overly explicit or graphic images that may not be suitable for minors.

11. Signatures can not have more than three lines of text, with a font size no larger than "4", and no more than two font colors. Images in signatures cannot be any larger than 800 pixels wide x 200 pixels tall. Animated images are not allowed.

12. You are prohibited from taking any action to disturb the use of the services by others, distribute material that contains viruses, spyware or any other malicious code or harmful programs. This includes interfering with the working of the network, attempts to gain unauthorized access to a service or other computer systems that are part of the site or any other site, by use of the available services.

13. Discussion of moderation actions in public and/or private forums is not permitted. Moderation actions include warnings, suspensions and the editing or deletion of posts. If a member has a concern about a moderation action, he or she is invited to address it with the board staff via Private Message. This rule exists to protect the privacy of all posters with regards to disciplinary action. The moderator team will never publicly discuss the warnings/suspensions of any posters, and we ask that you return the favor, whether about yourself or another poster. Posting about moderation actions in the public forums constitutes a violation. You are free to discuss a moderation action via Private Message with the moderator involved, but you may not harass or abuse the moderators (as already specified in the forum rules). In practical terms, this means that once a moderator tells you his or her decision is final, no further PMs about that moderation action are permitted. If you have a concern about a moderation action, you are free to appeal to a Forum Administrator via Private Message. You may only discuss moderator activities or discussion of moderation with staff member if you chose to private message and are not under any circumstances allowed to use the PM function to forward or promote moderator discussion in regards to specific forum action, amongst other regular members. Administrators do reserve the right to read said PMs and may do so ; if that results in discovery of messaging between posters of such moderator discussion then it will lead to the same violation being received for discussing said moderator actions on the forum. If you receive a message to the effect of having been given moderator information, please report it to a member of staff. Engaging back in that discussion with the original violator will earn you just as stiff a sanction.

14. Do not ignore moderators or administrators. Do not repost something a moderator or administrator has deleted. You cannot have moderators or administrators on your ignore list.

15. Only post in English. Short passages in foreign languages may be acceptable if its use seems helpful for the ongoing discussion and when there is no indication of a potential violation of the forum rules. Always provide a translation into English in such cases. In case of doubt, the incident will be regarded as a violation, no matter of the actual meaning of the foreign language text.

16. The use of words/comments etc. written by other posters, without approval of the poster in your personal signature is not allowed nor are references, by name, to other posters allowed.

17. Please pay attention to announcements by Forum staff that will be found in the "Welcome! / News & Announcements" forum from time to time.

18. Use of "liar", "lies", "lying", etc. Accusing someone of being a "liar" or similar accusations towards other posters will generally be regarded as implying an insult and therewith as a violation of the forum rules. "I question the validity of your statement because...", "That's not the truth" or "you are wrong about that" are sufficient for any decent discussion if you want to disagree with somebody's assertions.

19. Thread opening restriction for new members. In order to control SPAM, new members must have moderator approval to start their own threads.

20. Thread titles must relate to the discussion within. Do not make misleading titles, or titles such as "Guess what..." or "You'll never believe this...". Members need to be able to identify the general gist of the thread via the title. Profanity in thread titles is not permitted.

21. Forum members are instructed to use forum tools and abilities for their intended purposes and no other. If members identify a forum glitch or weakness of any kind that allows you to see or do something you know you shouldn't, please report it. Being aware of any unintended access to the Forum and failing to take appropriate steps to notify staff of said access issues, will create a presumption of seeking to take advantage of the issue, will result in either account suspension, or banishment.

22. Any link to a site that contains graphic content, must contain a warning describing what a person might reasonably expect to view if they click on said link. No graphic pictures are to be posted on the Forum.

23. Threats or advocations of violence toward a public figure, or member of the Forum, will not be tolerated. Conversation about revolution or the like is not prohibited by this rule; directly calling for violence is, eg It's time to kill every <redacted> that voted for the bill, is not permitted.

24. Accounts with no posts will be deleted after 30 days. Inactive accounts with low post histories may be deleted after one year.

25. Private forums are something offered to members that decide to contribute directly to this site via donations. These donations help immensely in keeping this site up and running. Private forums are designed to allow the contributing member discuss whatever he/she wants to and to have the power to direct that discussion in whatever way he/she chose. They were not designed nor are they intended for simply talking trash about members that don't have access to the forum. While the targeted members cannot see the forum or the comments, it creates a negative atmosphere that really isn't necessary. If you want to totally rip apart ideas, ideologies, political parties, etc. that is fine. We simply ask that you don't use the private forums as a means to attack other members that aren't privy to such comments. It is difficult enough to have a political discussion forum because the discussion of politics is inherently heated as people are so passionate about their beliefs...the ones that take the time to come to such a site in the first place at least. The idea of private forums is so people of similar political persuasions can discuss whatever they want without fear of being attacked. Nonetheless, we hope that a certain level of maturity would foster itself within such an arena and not simply lend itself to a bashing forum.

Private Forums are governed by all of the above Forum rules. In addition:
  • Private forums that essentially become abandoned homes will be subject to deletion, donation or reorganization. Just like elsewhere in life, clubs sometimes lose their vitality and purpose for a myriad of reasons. If it becomes clear that a private forum has clearly lost its vitality and nobody is going to really use it anymore, owners are advised to consider whether to reuse the forum for something new and productive rather than let them linger or notify the Administration that the forum should be rearranged for other purposes, closed, merged with other compatible private forums, donated to others for new purposes, etc. Do not be concerned that your forum must be a membership and post count race with others to avoid falling under this policy; the question is whether your forum has actual vitality instead of being 'brain dead.'
  • Additionally, private forums may only be owned by subscribed members in the Platinum or Diamond categories.
  • Should the owner of a private forum be banned, quit USPOL or otherwise abandon the forum the PF will be transferred to another owner or closed.
  • Propriety of private forums. Administration staff will determine the desirability of a proposed private forum and enact any conditions upon it to ensure its purpose is productive.
  • Any and all instances of sharing accounts by allowing someone else to log in under their own account so they can see into private forums for which they are otherwise not permitted to access, will be deemed violation of the double account rule and all caught doing so will be permanently banned.
  • Relaying private forum posts and information to other posters who are not members of the particular private forum for any negative or destructive purpose (eg mean-spirited gossip, fueling interpersonal disputes, etc), is not permitted, and will constitute a violation of the Forum rules.
  • For purposes of monitoring USPOL Terms of Service Administrative staff (not Moderators) will have access to Private Forums.
  • All Private Forums must have at least one active Administrator as a member for purposes of handling issues which cannot be addressed through moderation permissions.
  • Discussion of moderation activities is prohibited on the open site and is likewise prohibited in Private Forums.

26. The administrators and moderators reserve the right to edit and/or delete a post,and/or close a thread, and/or delete a thread at any time if of the opinion that the post is too obscene, inappropriate, or the discussion has run its course.

27. 'Back seat moderating' is not allowed. If you take issue with another poster's contribution to the forum, you're welcome to report any posts you think are out of line, but you should not bring it up publicly within the forum.

28. Images in posts (whether embedded or hot linked) must be reasonable in size. 800x800 should be considered a good rule of thumb. Excessively large images make it difficult for users on mobile devices to load pages. If necessary please simply link to very large images using the URL tags. In addition, the following images are not permitted (including, but not limited to pages with images or videos containing):
  • Strategically covered nudity
  • Sheer or see-through clothing
  • Lewd or provocative poses
  • Close-ups of breasts, buttocks, or crotches

29. Any solicitation or communication involving sports betting / gambling / online casinos / bookies and or internet based card or slot machine systems or sites will lead to all said content being physically removed from the site and server, and will lead to any and or all parties involved being permanently removed and banned from the site to the farthest extent possible. This includes any links to any form of bookmaker, casino, any type of game or match or event where money transfers on the outcome or link of any sort to wire act violations and or anything in violation of either the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act, Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, or the Federal wire Act. This applies not only to the open forum but all and or any chat rooms, articles, private messages and or private forums. All content that violates this rule will be deleted, without notice.

CONSEQUENCES

Failure to comply with any of the forum rules may result in your posts being edited or deleted and/or your account being temporarily or permanently banned from the forums. U.S. Politics Online uses a warning system that generates an automated Private Message to members when they are in violation of Forum rules. The decision to issue a warning is left to the discretion of the moderator or administrator handling the violation. If a member does not agree with an action taken by a moderator, they can appeal to an administrator after seeking clarification from the moderator who issued the warning/infraction and appealing to them in the first instance. Members MAY NOT harass a moderator or administrator by sending excessive PMs when they are discussing an appeal.

Violations are assigned a point value. Points are valid for 30 days. When a members earns 10 points, their account will be automatically suspended: five (5) days for a first suspension; ten (10) days for a second suspension; and twenty (20) days for a third suspension. If a member incurs an additional 10 points after having served three periods of suspension, then they will be permanently banned from the Forum.

Point values are as follows:
Zero (0) points Warning
Two (2) points - Minor infraction / Non post infraction (minor) / Off topic posts / spamming
Four (4) points - Academic dishonesty / Baiting / Discussing moderator or administrator actions / Implying an insult / Minor insults / Moderate infraction / Non-post infraction (moderate) / Thread dumping
Six (6) points - Direct insult at another member / major infraction / Non-post infraction (major)
Ten (10) points - Act of criminality, or advocating thereof

The administrators and moderators also bear the right to issue warnings, temporarily suspend or ban posters for continued trolling or other serious misconduct (eg. professional spamming) even if the poster has not yet reached the maximum warning points or suspensions level. Other options if the above consequences do not seem adequate include placing the member in a moderation queue, which means all posts will have to be approved before they are posted to the board.

PRIVACY POLICY

All information obtained by the end user via the registration process is for internal purposes only and will not be sold to or shared with any third parties. However, if the end user participates in illegal activities and a court of proper jurisdiction orders U.S. Politics Online to release certain information about said user then we will act according to the law. Furthermore, no information will be released on threat of a lawsuit, attempted or actual intimidation, or due to any other reason except as notated in the first sentence of this paragraph. Nonetheless, keep in mind that the information we do have is very limited and generally only consists of the IP address a member uses.

SUBSCRIPTIONS

U.S. Politics Online offers several subscription plans to help cover the operational costs of the site. As a thank you for your donation, you will receive special added benefits meant to enhance your U.S. Politics Online experience.

  • Tonights State of the Union address

    It has been interesting how people are behaving these days.

    It will be interesting to see how the presidents speech tonight will be received.

    Some are getting ahead of the game it seems....

    Nancy is clearly upset.

    So upset she's begun to sound like a schoolyard brat.

    Unbelievable the depths she's publicly taken herself to. . . all so she can insult someone.

    I guess we'll see how this childish stuff plays out for her.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    She reportedly told her members that expectations for his speech are so low that, "if his nose isn't running and he isn't burping, he did a great speech."

    "Let the attention be on his slobbering self," the California Democrat Pelosi told members in her caucus's weekly private meeting Tuesday morning,

      Given your hatred for the man, I can't say I'd blame you. He's a businessman too and I've yet to meet one that isn't as arrogant as Lucifer, so...

      .. maybe he's different ? I think he at least has Americas best interests at heart, we can hope.

        It was a very good speech.

        Did anyone else notice nancy sitting there moving her mouth around like she was chewing on a hairball ? She obviously wasn't pleased to be there, why on earth did she go ?

        Then he said; "In God we trust !!" . . . . that's going to make some people upset.

        ?

          I skipped the speech figuring My buddy Captain T would fill me in on the details. So what did the captain take away from the event? Nancy P. didn't look like she was pleased to be there. What a shock.

            A shock it wasn't. She looked like she was chewing on a hairball that had been through a cat once already LOL

            She made a fool of herself acting that way, there was no reason for it.

            As for the details of the presidents speech, I'm sure you can get quite a bit of great stuff from our media. You could even watch the speech probably, I'm sure it was recorded and is still available to watch, there are transcripts of it out there too, I'm sure.

              Without seeing I can with a doubt tell you that it was the best speech ever delivered by a US president. We can ignore the factual mistakes in this post factual America. http://fortune.com/2017/08/30/donald...ield-mo-3-gdp/

                So you cite something that was said long before this speech ?

                That's odd.

                Not to mention the fact that presidents have said inaccurate, or untrue things for as long as America has existed LOL Need I cite some more recent lies told by guys like Bush, Clinton, and your God Obama ?

                  'm still slogging through Fantasyland. We are just getting into Trump. Who is the perfect president for your team where the truth is secondary to hearing things that feel good and support your prejudices.. All Trump's lies are not all intentional. Often he just picks up some nonsense from the web and runs with it.I remember what a waste of time it was confronting you guys with fact checks.

                      You've almost perfected the media/liberal method of accusing others of what you're guilty of.

                      Alas, it can never be perfected.

                      Because lies are so quickly & easily dis-proven.

                      Take heart, your like-minded liberal friends will nod, smile and believe . . . and deny facts right along with you.

                        nancy pelosi chewing on hairballs.....

                        Ironic it is to witness such childish behavior from demorats given their 18 month campaign of calling Trump unprofessional and uncouth.

                        It just shows us that demorats are what they accuse others of being. The dictionary picture of hypocrisy.


                        --------------------------------------------------------------------------

                        President Donald Trumps first State of the Union was striking not only because it was arguably his most presidential speech in tone and tenor thus far but also because it revealed the spectacular bankruptcy of the Democratic Party in 2018.

                        Trump struck a bipartisan tone from the beginning. He referenced the many natural disasters that have devastated the country, and he took that opportunity to acknowledge the first responders some of whom were present in the room whom he thanked personally.

                        He then called for unity not just in tragedy, but in policy.

                        With understandable pride, the president referenced the stock markets skyrocketing values over the past year, the millions of new jobs created, the growth in manufacturing jobs in particular, the billions of dollars corporations have committed to investing in the U.S. and the rise in average wages.

                        These points received great cheers and applause. From Republicans. The Democrats were seated and sullen.

                        Most of the Democrats present never budged from their seats, smiled or applauded to show their support even on issues they have traditionally championed. Faced with example after example of improved circumstances for constituencies they claim to represent, Democrats refused to stand or applaud (West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly were notable exceptions) and, in some cases, booed.

                        The Democratic Party is so bereft of ideas and Democrats themselves are so petty that theyre actually angry when their political opponents policies have been successful in helping the people they claim to care about: minorities, the middle class, veterans and small-business owners.

                        Perhaps Democrats are upset because Trump not only gave one of the most conservative SOTU speeches in recent memory, he also managed to co-opt a big chunk of the Democrats signature issues. After all, if theyre not for jobs, higher wages, better prospects for minorities and middle-class families, infrastructure spending, a path to citizenship for immigrants and a safer nation then what are they for? And if they do support those issues, then why wouldnt they work with the president to achieve them?

                        Their petulant performance at the State of the Union address provides mighty poor optics for Democrats, falling as it does between the humiliating defeat of the Schumer shutdown and the pending release of the House Intelligence Committees memo a document that may cast an even more unfavorable light on Democrats in the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

                        Democrats have been crowing for months about a blue wave in November. At this rate, theyll just be eating crow.

                        It is difficult to imagine a more galling demonstration of incivility than the Democrats in the room for Trump's SOTU speech. They scowled, frowned, and sat on their hands throughout the speech. They could hardly be bothered to acknowledge the heroes in the audience when they were introduced. While the Dems brought illegal immigrants, Trump invited actual paragons of American character and the families of victims of illegal immigrant crimes, as well as a victim of North Korea. It was embarrassing, like watching the anti-Semites in the UN stomp out of the room when Benjamin Netanyahu speaks. How is it any different? Our Democrats behave exactly like the most racist, intolerant people on the planet, and in their own Capitol.

                        [ as they tell us so often not to be racist & intolerant ]

                        They abhor the return of American manufacturing and the bonuses so many companies have doled out to their employees. It was not so long ago that Obama essentially swore that "those jobs are never coming back." "Crumbs," billionaire Pelosi called their bonuses. The left today hates our military. They hate the notion of national security. Like Obama, they cannot abide the unfair advantage, as they see it, of American might, American success, and American freedom which they are always trying to impede, to restrict, to regulate and tax. The left has been doing its best to turn the United States into Venezuela for two generations. Progressivism is socialism. Venezuela is how it ends.

                        How and why have the leftists among us become so anti-American, so contemptuous of the Constitution, the Founders, and American heroism? When did they get to be so rude? They hate Trump so much they have regressed to being playground bullies, a gang of horrid little toddlers.

                        ..this much is clear: the Democratic Party is today the party of illegal immigrants. That is their core constituency, that is who they represent over and above Americans.


                        Do they think their bad manners will endear them to the American people, most of whom have been taught basic manners and probably agree with nearly every word Trump spoke tonight? Do they think that refusing to stand for the heroes and victims Trump profiled will win over new voters? The parents of two African-American girls killed by MS-13 gang thugs were present and Trump recognized them. The Democrats would not even stand for them!

                        High taxes, redistribution of wealth, open borders, the erasure of gender, the primacy of skin color, the dumbing-down of education across the board: these are the policies the Democrats promote. This is why they are desperate for illegal immigration, amnesty for millions, and chain migration. They cannot remain in power if they do not massively increase the dependent class they themselves created by design. It goes without saying that many of these immigrants are hardworking, fine people who are assets to our civil society, but many thousands of them are not. The criminal element among them is too much to bear. That is why legal immigration and immigration laws exist!

                        The fact that the Democrats in Congress loathe Trump more than they love their country or the American people is a tragedy. They have become a group of chattering nabobs who have nothing but disdain for the President and anyone who voted for him, those of us who wisely chose a political novice over a known criminal and liar.


                        Democrats are not only ill-mannered and out of touch with the constituents they represent, they are not very bright. Generally speaking, enmity and rancor do not win over voters.

                          Ironic it is to witness such childish behavior from demorats given their 18 month campaign of calling Trump unprofessional and uncouth.

                          It just shows us that demorats are what they accuse others of being. The dictionary picture of hypocrisy.


                          --------------------------------------------------------------------------

                          President Donald Trumps first State of the Union was striking not only because it was arguably his most presidential speech in tone and tenor thus far but also because it revealed the spectacular bankruptcy of the Democratic Party in 2018.

                          Trump struck a bipartisan tone from the beginning. He referenced the many natural disasters that have devastated the country, and he took that opportunity to acknowledge the first responders some of whom were present in the room whom he thanked personally.

                          He then called for unity not just in tragedy, but in policy.

                          With understandable pride, the president referenced the stock markets skyrocketing values over the past year, the millions of new jobs created, the growth in manufacturing jobs in particular, the billions of dollars corporations have committed to investing in the U.S. and the rise in average wages.

                          These points received great cheers and applause. From Republicans. The Democrats were seated and sullen.

                          Most of the Democrats present never budged from their seats, smiled or applauded to show their support even on issues they have traditionally championed. Faced with example after example of improved circumstances for constituencies they claim to represent, Democrats refused to stand or applaud (West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly were notable exceptions) and, in some cases, booed.

                          The Democratic Party is so bereft of ideas and Democrats themselves are so petty that theyre actually angry when their political opponents policies have been successful in helping the people they claim to care about: minorities, the middle class, veterans and small-business owners.

                          Perhaps Democrats are upset because Trump not only gave one of the most conservative SOTU speeches in recent memory, he also managed to co-opt a big chunk of the Democrats signature issues. After all, if theyre not for jobs, higher wages, better prospects for minorities and middle-class families, infrastructure spending, a path to citizenship for immigrants and a safer nation then what are they for? And if they do support those issues, then why wouldnt they work with the president to achieve them?

                          Their petulant performance at the State of the Union address provides mighty poor optics for Democrats, falling as it does between the humiliating defeat of the Schumer shutdown and the pending release of the House Intelligence Committees memo a document that may cast an even more unfavorable light on Democrats in the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.

                          Democrats have been crowing for months about a blue wave in November. At this rate, theyll just be eating crow.

                          Their behavior is hurting them more than they realize. Only rabid Democrats are supporting them now and there are not that many of them.

                            Nice report from fantasyland. you do have a point Trump's approval has shot all the way to 44% based on a state of the union speech which he was able to deliver without urinating on the stage a single time the bar has been set very low for the Donald. in the real world of mathematics 44% loses to 56% but one can't be sure because of the way republicans have massaged voting districts.I understand that your belief that there aren't many of them is rock solid and can't be shaken by the truth.Faith trumps reality every time in fantasyland.

                              Those polls mean nothing. His polls before the election had him at 5% and Hillary at 95%. See how that turned out? There are a lot of people who won't admit that they support Trump because they don't wanted to be denigrated by leftists like you. Many actually fear people like the antifa. Speak out in a public rally and you may have your head bashed in or have a college professor with a bike lock hitting you over the head with it. If Trump has a 44% approval rating with the MSM bashing him relentlessly every day, I would say that is pretty darn good.
