Any financial or time loss due to your participation here or as a result of something you read at this site, including posts/PMs by other members and feature(s)/software available at the domain
The dissemination of any personal information about you as a result of either your negligence (e.g. staying logged into a computer that others have access to) or willingness to post such information on a public and or private forum, private message or chat box. This includes using your real name or other details that could allow other members and/or the general public to determine your true identity. You are prohibited from using your real name on these forums, either as your username or in posts / PMs you write.


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.


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.


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.

    Is it true that Republicans celebrate Earth Day by dumping their old motor oil into the river and burning old tires? Every one pollution is a hoax

    It is as true as any of your other political positions or claims.

    Not at all, in other words.

        Any of them ? Probably ALL of the republitards took part in these parades of stupidity.

        ----------------- would be good if a climate investigation over centuries would be known. Well, Science magazine gave the results of such a study that covered the last 3000 years. It showed that we now are under the mean temperature of the last 3000 years. It also showed that the widely fluctuating mean temperature (based on isotope ratios in the skeletons of marine organisms deposited in the Sargasso Sea) hit peaks five degrees higher than now around 900 B.C. and 400 B.C. and 3 degrees higher than around 100 A.D. There were also lows 2 degrees cooler than now around 100 A.D. and 1700 A.D. Since this last one, the temperature has been steadily rising (a scorching J 2 degrees in the last 300 years). An outcome of these calculations is that:
        human activity could not have been the cause of it (as global warming alarmists claim).

        Global warming and cooling fluctuations are tied to solar activity because the same ones happen on Mars. (Another proof that human activity is not the cause).
        More than 17,000 American scientists have signed a petition opposing the Kyoto treaty.
        Proponents of global warming predicted 20 years ago that in the following 20 years from then there would be a warming increase of between 1 and 2 degrees. Theres been none.
        The fear that global warming would cause floods is not justified because at a warming spike in 1000 A.D. there was no major flooding.

        Much of the above was reported in The Wall Street Journal, Global Warming Is 300-Year-Old News, January 18, 2000, by Arthur Robinson and Noah Robinson, chemists at the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine, with updates from them in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (2007) 12. 79-90.


        Idiots on parade again, marching around yelling and making fools of themselves.


        Thousands Join March for Science to Fight 'Alternative Facts'

        Thousands of people joined a global March for Science on Saturday with Washington the epicenter of a movement to fight back against what many see as an "assault on facts" by populist politicians.

        [ These clowns have zero interest in science and facts ..... "assault on facts" hmmmm ? Yes, that's interesting. Who is it that likes to squeal loudly that alternative facts are true ? ]

        Hundreds streamed onto the Washington Mall for a festive day of music, speeches and teach-ins by scientists disturbed by the rise of so-called "alternative facts" around crucial issues like climate change following the election of Donald Trump.

        [ neverminding of course that their entire belief system is built on alternative "facts." ]

        "Everything we touch, science has helped us understand better," said Ruth Varner, a biochemist from the University of New Hampshire.

        "We're all busy every day, so if you're not surrounded by scientists talking about this you might forget how important it is to you."

        [ This scientist makes a statement. I wonder what other scientists might say ? .... Of course we're only offered the views of a few "marching zealots" here ]

          Of course !!! They are followers after-all, just copying their liberal neighbors.

          Of course it is, a republican told me it wasn't LOL

          Then a liberal told me that man caused climate change WAS a hoax - he was drunk & being honest though - the next day he was back to the same story about how we have only decades left to live before earth turns into a fireball.

          People do like to march and rally around any old "cause" don't they ? LOL

            From one site, we get another question that will be answered within the next 500 years: What factors are involved with accelerated species extinction? Link:
            ...if all 'threatened' species became extinct within a century, and that rate then continued unabated, terrestrial amphibian, bird and mammal extinction would reach Big Five magnitudes in ~240 to 540 years....This emphasises that current extinction rates are higher than those that caused Big Five extinctions in geological time; they could be severe enough to carry extinction magnitudes to the Big Five benchmark in as little as three centuries.

            Now, given the massive disinterest by most humans in extinction, coupled with the dominant "solution" proposed by those in power, I see a solution to the dilemma. Keeping endangered species in zoos does nothing to keep biological equilibrium in play. IOW, factors that a species contributes to the overall environment are mostly neutralized when kept in a cage. Noting human capacity to invent solutions based entirely on artificial technology, despite reality, leads me to conclude that there will be a solution if another massive extinction event takes place, which is mostly caused by the actions of humanity:
            -The elites will live in a can (or series of cans) orbiting our solar system and,
            -The rest of humanity will either go extinct with the other 70-90% of Earth's species, or we will reduce our numbers to a population that can accommodate reduced resources brought about by mass extinction. Observing the current state of affairs, a population of humans that is roughly 10% of our current level is possible, made up mostly of survivalists, current hunter-gatherers, and successful subsistence farmers. Scavenging massive, abandoned urban zones should allow a scientific community to continue on a smaller scale.

            The deniers on the right -who claim that mankind is incapable of harming an indestructible ecosystem- will make their contribution by destroying support for the current population growth objectives, which are clearly unsustainable.

            Deniers on the left -who wish to control human settlement (but not population levels) with the objective of protecting every species that has a chance of surviving- will make their contribution too. They will destroy the concept of "master-management", that humans can successfully "enhance" or protect ecosystems despite our own population level.

            The best way to help ecosystems is to minimize our impact on them. Leave them alone, and "harvest" resources on occasion, for use by small groups of people. It guarantees a source of raw materials in perpetuity, since the demand is limited while the supply is continuously replenished and mostly used for the benefit of the ecosystem (rather than people).

            Thank you, short-sighted righties and lefties. It looks like a bright future by this tree-hugger's estimation.

                      bill nye the something guy.

                      He has a big mouth & obviously has zero interest in science. Like liberals everywhere. Such noise they make . . .

                      ... about nothing. Earth day ... really a bad excuse to party and make noise and promote B.S. LOL Fun fun fun. Dumb, but fun. I guess.


                      ....if someone as ill-informed as Bill Nye can be called a scientist in this matter then the bar is set pretty low. The fields are ripe for harvest.

                      The Science Guy seems to think that the U.S. continuing to agree with the falsity of global warming is somehow going to help America stay current. He finds it possible for the United States to grow in science and international respect by supporting a false claim. This he says openly by declaring that the U.S. will fall behind other countries that do invest in science, that do invest in basic research. Well, since this research has proven to be as fake as the rear ends of modern pop stars, it can only be a good thing for America to expose the lie and again the lead the world in true, fact based science. That means admitting that global warming is a hoax, as the President has wisely noted.

                      The best thing that those of us who are sick of paying taxes for a scam can do is support people like Princetons Happer and those who speak out. Not until we let everyone know the facts will enough people rise up and refuse to keep paying.

                      One of the ways that harmful and/or fraudulent ideas take root in a society is by indoctrinating the children. When the Germans wanted to find a way to get good children to kill Jews, they fed lies into the schools and within the youth groups in order to sell them as less than human. North Korea has a leadership that teaches their people that their dictator is a god who does not use the restroom, to show another example. They grow into adults knowing this. Fake indoctrination is happening in the U.S, as well, and nowhere is it more clearly seen than in the area of climate change and the lie of man made global warming. While our cars and SUVs are definitely giving us cancer, man is NOT warming the planet by any of his actions, no matter how often the lie to the contrary is told.

                      While real science is showing time and time again that the Al Gore crowd of warming cultists are as incorrect as they can possibly be, science show favorite Bill Nye is still out and about defending the disproven notion at every chance given. Considering that his fame comes in large part due to this appeal to children (he is The Science Guy on kids shows), this means that fake science being fed to our kids as fact, just like in North Korea. While Earth Day was being celebrated (though almost NO ONE knows of anyone who even remembered it nor cared to) by the left who uses a lie to fleece taxes and halt economic growth, the GOP is at least fighting back finally. The facts have long been on their side and as they were being presented on CNN, Nye attacked the channel for giving equal say to deniers.

                      The left claims to have facts about climate change, but when studies are done by people not funded by them, these facts most often prove that mankind isnt warming the planet at all. The progressives have taken to trying to silence the opposition since those opposing them can easily prove them wrong! So-called deniers are just pointing out a lie, much like they would be doing if they denied that man can live under water like a fish or fly like Superman. While Trump once quipped that global warming was a Chinese lie created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive, he was not too far removed from the truth. After all, the left never addresses how China producing energy and selling it to the U.S. warms the planet less than if America produces it. Does the Earth only warm if America drills/produces/manufactures?

                      CNNs Victor Blackwell on Sunday had a number of guests on his show, including the well-respected Princeton University William Happer who has disproved this lie countless times. With credentials such as Princeton, the assumption that climate change is settled fact goes out the proverbial window. This is one reason why the left hates fair say being given to those with real facts and why they fight it with such force.

                      As much I love CNN, you are doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic, and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change, said Nye. He is purposefully overlooking the fact that most of those who buy into the lie are only doing so on raw data that they hide and to obtain more funding. This is a reality that the left never mentions nor addresses. If there are known liars in the system, just because they may be the majority due to funding, why should anyone listen to skewed data masquerading as fact?

                      Happer was not about to be intimidated by the childhood celebrity and said that, contrary to what Nye would like to suggest, he had met with President Trump. Happer reports that the White House is very supportive of science. The simple truth of the matter is that the science is proving those like Nye incorrect. A Blasting News article consulted for this piece uses the analogy of evolution as a different proven fact that the right denies, but that isnt true, either. Almost everyone agrees with micro-evolution theory (changes within a species, like the changing of the Peppered Moths colors to adjust to pollution) but many dispute macro-evolution (a fish becoming a man) because there is no proof of it ever having happened. This is a regular lie used by the left to attack those who support real science.

                        Bill Nye is a comedian with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He has no formal training in any of the pure sciences.

                          It's only a matter of choosing your alternative scientists. The ones who make you feel better, not like those guys who claim your grandfather was a fish.

                            And that's just the rub today. There should be not political opinion about scientific facts but there is. Just like the Supreme Court, there should be no political opinion about the law but there is. Ideologues are allowed to invade science and law to the detriment of the country and the world. Hardly anything the global warming alarmists have claimed over the last 30 years has come to fruition and yet they continue with their blind belief that it eventually will.

                              30 years ago weren't these confused folks telling us about the coming ice age ?

                              Now it's the opposite.

                              One has to wonder what it will be next ?
