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.

  • Silence by slander

    Democrats unwillingness to debate issues but rather silence those who stand in opposition has made dialogue over crucial topics virtually impossible in the political arena.

    Clearly true, don't discuss and debate, silence opposition by slander - that's the democratic way today.

    They can't debate or discuss issues honestly, because they have no logical, sensible arguments. Instead, they make up stories, even lies about people who they disagree with. This is called slander ...

    ...oral defamation, in which someone tells one or more persons an untruth about another, which untruth will harm the reputation of the person defamed.

    http://dictionary.law.com/Default.aspx?selected=1969



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

    Horowitz, .. argues that instead of spreading feelings of inclusiveness, unity and tolerance as the Democratic Party platform proclaims to .. Democrats are pushing an agenda of hate and divisiveness.

    "We have in this country a large 'hate-America Left,'" Horowitz expressed ..

    Democrats are far from promoting love and compassion, saying they are peddling something quite the opposite.

    ..attacks from the Left not ceasing and seemingly increasing since losing the November election to the Republican challenger now-President Donald Trump Horowitz says that the new commander-in-chief has not been fazed by the incessant bombardment of vitriol from Democrats from Clinton, to Obama, to Sanders, to Warren, to Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile.

    "The great thing about Donald Trump is that he's not intimidated by the attacks of the Left," ..

    "The spirit of the whole Democratic Party looks on people that disagree with it as racist, sexist, homophobes, Islamophobes," ..

    Democrats unwillingness to debate issues but rather silence those who stand in opposition has made dialogue over crucial topics virtually impossible in the political arena.

      Which would explain why they're now rioting, assaulting, destroying, setting fires etc.

        There seems to be a concerted effort to take trump down. His administration is a sieve, letting out information, and it is doubtful it is the people he surrounded himself with. It looks to me like you got both parties, MSM and even factions within the intel community that are working together to either get him out of office or bring into to heel.

        Since when does the CIA leak on a sitting President? And you know the NSA has the goods on Hillary and bill. But that is not leaked. Is it because Hillary and bill were a part of the shadow gov't, doing the bidding of whoever is in such a gov't?

        Trump obviously wanted a reset with Russia, on his terms, and even that led to him being called a Russian agent. The public is now probably convinced Russia did the hacking and used that to elect trump, but his is because a MSM blackout is in place with ambassador Murray, who told one news agency that Russia did not turn over to wilkileaks and he knew the insider to did turn it over. Once this story broke, MSM went into blackout, and I mean blackout. Now, explain that, given the credibility of Murray.

        Things are not what they seem if you get your information from MSM. And if not for the internet, this scam would not even be questioned. Yet MSM is still an effective force to keep the corruption in place, intact,and unchallenged. This is an alternate 1984 scenario folks, and given what we have seen being hurled against trump, there can be little doubt what is going on. The bad thing is, trump is actually in the process of being taken down, and just watch it to see it play out in the manner I am speaking of. There is a psy-ops being run here. Let us hope it fails.

          It was the MSM that kept on the Flynn scandal and brought it to a happy conclusion. The same way they kept after the Watergate story back in the day. We will see what kind of success Trump has in silencing the truth tellers..

              The only thing Flynn did wrong was not tell Pence and Trump exactly what he had discussed with the Russian Ambassador. His conversations as the incoming National Security Director were quite appropriate. This is just another attempt by the MSM to discredit Trump and someone else they hated. The media made a huge deal about him discussing sanctions with the Russian Ambassador and there was nothing wrong with him doing that. He should have discussed anything he wanted to discuss as he was the incoming guy and needed to establish a relationship with the Russians. The MSM just latched onto some strawman and smelled red meat and chased it. The Administration threw them a bone in the body of Flynn because he had not been totally forthcoming with Trump and Pence.

              I hope they get to the bottom of who illegally leaked the conversations and put them under the jail.

                  There was no coverup, someone in the intelligence community illegally leaked classified information and should be prosecuted and either shot or jailed for treason.

                    And the DNC still hasn't figured out where those emails came from...

                    Or have they?

                    Three brothers who managed office information technology for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and other lawmakers were abruptly relieved of their duties on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission.

                    Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives Thursday, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.

                    Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis. The two committees deal with many of the nations most sensitive issues and documents, including those related to the war on terrorism.

                    Also among those whose computer systems may have been compromised is Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Florida Democrat who was previously the target of a disastrous email hack when she served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 campaign.

                    The brothers are suspected of serious violations, including accessing members computer networks without their knowledge and stealing equipment from Congress.

                        It's gotten old.

                        What's scary is these jerk-off democrats will then be ignored when something they say finally MIGHT BE TRUE !!!

                        Because they lied & attempted to slander so much that everyone permanently put them on ignore.

                        Idiots !!!!

                            What Does the NY Times Article Actually Say

                            I just pulled up the NYT. Let me break down the propaganda for everyone.

                            Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trumps 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials.
                            Ok interesting. Tell me more..

                            American law enforcement and intelligence agencies intercepted the communications
                            Oh sh*t. Law enforcement. That sounds serious. I wonder which law enforcement and intelligence. The CIA? The NSA? FBI?

                            The officials interviewed in recent weeks said that, so far, they had seen no evidence of such cooperation.
                            NO EVIDENCE. Gotcha. Well surely they must have a source or something.. right!? Its on the front page!

                            The call logs and intercepted communications are part of a larger trove of information that the F.B.I. is sifting through as it investigates the links between Mr. Trumps associates and the Russian government, as well as the hacking of the D.N.C., according to federal law enforcement officials.
                            OK so this is part of some information at the FBI. The FBI must be the source right?

                            The officials would not disclose many details, including what was discussed on the calls, the identity of the Russian intelligence officials who participated, and how many of Mr. Trumps advisers were talking to the Russians.
                            Aw shucks. No details? Darn.

                            The F.B.I. declined to comment. The White House also declined to comment Tuesday night, but earlier in the day, the press secretary, Sean Spicer, stood by Mr. Trumps previous comments that nobody from his campaign had contact with Russian officials before the election.
                            OK so the FBI isnt the source now? Either way, lets just ignore that. Perhaps theyre getting to the good part!

                            Two days after the election in November, Sergei A. Ryabkov, the deputy Russian foreign minister, said there were contacts during the campaign between Russian officials and Mr. Trumps team.
                            Oh here we go. A Russian guy said that he talked with Trump. Surely that is unusual- let me check out the linked related article for more information.

                            Later, the Foreign Ministry in Moscow said Mr. Ryabkov had been referring to American politicians and supporters of Mr. Trump, not members of his campaign staff. The contacts were carried out through the Russian ambassador in Washington, who reached out to the senators and other political allies to get a better sense of Mr. Trumps positions on various issues involving Russia.
                            OK, so we have a Russian guy who talked to the Russian ambassador in Washington. Some officials said the FBI has some files or something (Who are the officials again?). And the FBI is declining to comment. Seems like weve got some really quality reporting going on here.

                            Carlos Slim and his NY Times did it again. CNN has gone all out and claims to know Putin has the goods on Trump with no evidence whatsoever.
                            It seems to me that if Trump was bought and paid for by Putin, Putin wouldn't have to ask what Trumps positions on Russia where. It seems to me that if Trump was bought and paid for by Putin, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley would not calling Russia out on its shenanigans in Ukraine. It seems to me that if Trump was bought and paid for by Putin, Putin wouldn't have to run sonar survey ships up the East Coast, or station tactical nuclear missiles in Europe, or buzz US ships at sea.

                            None of this behavior is consistent with some sort of vast conspiracy between Trump and Putin. It is however, consistent with the regressive lefts efforts to find any excuse for their loss than the truth, including blaming a foreign scapegoat.

                            ?

                              You would be singing a different tune if there were stories about Russia working on behalf of Clinton. The impeachment hearings would already be in progress.
