Trump kicked off video game meeting
with ´horrendously violent´ compilation,
participant says

Washington Examiner, by Steven Nelson

President Trump´s closed-door meeting Thursday with members of the video game industry, lawmakers, and cultural critics began with the president playing a compilation of "horrendously violent" gaming content on a laptop, a meeting participant said. The 2 p.m. meeting lasted about an hour and was entirely closed to the press, despite originally being advertised as partially open to the White House press pool. It´s unclear why Trump did not invite the press to cover the beginning of the event or the full discussion, as he has done with other White House events following the Valentine´s Day massacre of 17 people

Any references in the meeting to sh*thole countries where games are ´fought´, misogny, bigotry, homophobia, islamophobia, beastiality, etc, etc, etc....all sorts of culturally uplifting, moral character building video games that youth of today play....

The video gaming industry claims that video games have not murdered anyone, but it is clear that violent video games put “ideas” in the minds of some vulnerable mentally ill people, “ideas” that they would not have known about otherwise, who may or may not then go out and murder innocent people.

THIS is ABSOLUTELY contributing to the problem. There is NO doubt among rational people ...

... leftist journalists, Hollywood, and the “woke” however are another story.

Billions of dollars are spent on advertising it an effort to influence the way people think and entice them to buy into your message.

Why wouldn´t a steady consumption of violent images combined with violent "music" lyrics and movies and influence a certain percentage of vulnerable people?

Parents should monitor their kids, but...today these images are everywhere and catching all of it can be difficult for the most vigilant parent.

And then, you have the parents who are so afraid that their kids won´t like them that they let the kids see and do whatever they want to do.

Apparently Trump started the meeting by running a series of video clip on a large screen that were from some particularly violent video games, and then he asked the video game reps to explain themselves.

Its true that video games influence the mentally ill, but that´s not the only factor. How much do drugs influence the mentally ill? What about alcohol? What about broken families? Would guess video games are a small factor compared to others.

I´m glad Col. Grossman was there. He is compelling in his book "Assassination Generation". He was a psychology professor at West Point, where he was involved in understanding how to train young men for combat (killing); and more importantly; how does the military training NOT adversely affect the soldier after his return to peacetime service and civilian life?
He knows what he´s talking about in this area.
The gaming industry also knows they´re doing damage, but the money is just soooo good.

Agree with #7. I am certain that violence in those games has a negative effect, perhaps less than some other factors, like mental illness, alcohol, drugs, bad parenting, etc.

All you have to do is see some of these games and you will know there has to be some sort of negative effect, all those "video game violence doesn´t have ANY bad effects" studies be damned.

Who conducts these studies? Who paid for these studies? How do you know that they are not in the pay of the gaming industry or have some perverted ideological axe to grind?

The last video game I played was Pong, but I can´t believe that killing people with all the blood and gore cannot not have a negative affect on those playing the games. But then I´m a person who can´t stand to see a cat run over in the road. I think it has to desensitize these players. The definition of desensitize is: make (someone) less likely to feel shock or distress at scenes of cruelty, violence, or suffering by overexposure to such images.

Typical liberal buzztalk.
If a small group of people can´t handle something, then nobody should have it.
Put violent mentally ill people in institutional settings rather than trying to make society an institutional setting.

Color realists skeptical when it comes to science not backing up real-life violence as a result of violent video games, especially with revenue for the gaming industry at $4.7billion in2017, a 28 percent increase from $3.6billion in2016, and global revenue well over $60billion annually. Arguments resisting a correlation between violent video games and crime statistics citing a decrease in aggravated assaults unrelated to homicides avoid statistics based on age range. Most assuredly criminals vary in age; however, teenagers tend to be far more vulnerable to outside, popular influences and peer pressure with the potential for succumbing to violence.

Clockwork Orange comes to mind. Even recognizing First Amendment rights, the question comes to mind why are the violent games the most prevalent?

Profit motive is the obvious answer, but that evades the societal moral responsibility of those offering mass entertainment. How much of their "near occasion of sin" profits are used to fund the development and distribution of games that still challenge and excite while presenting more worthwhile goals than violent dismemberment?

Industry leaders who hide behind paid-for studies that "prove" no direct connection (a straw man argument) are craven and cowardly. Especially, for those who advocate that primitive man has a place within civilized society. Madness, pure madness.

#16 The violent games are the most prominent because that is the kind more people buy.
The game industry is a tough market. You can´t create fad sales through marketing like you can other products, nor can you build a brand loyalty that guarantees that people will buy your game.
Millions of people are voting for this with their wallets.

March came in like a lion, and has turned into a Tyrannosaurus Rex. A spring storm is expected to dump as much as 15 inches of snow on the Big Apple on Wednesday — leaving New Yorkers wondering if they’ll ever be able to pack up their winter gear. The late-season strike is the fourth nor-easter to clobber the city in the last three weeks — and led Mayor de Blasio to shut down schools for the day.“Everyone is tired of it,” said AccuWeather senior meteorologist Dave Samuhel, noting the recent spats of snowfall and below average temperatures.“It’s unfortunate really,” he

Why is the death penalty for
drug-traffickers controversial?
American Thinker, by Jack Hellner    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 3/21/2018 4:57:21 AM     Post Reply
President Trump is proposing that the death penalty be used for drug-traffickers. Most of the reporting I have seen presents that as a controversial, radical, dictatorial proposal. Here is one example from CNN: The speech looked to balance the President´s controversial calls for the federal government to get tougher on drug crimes with less heated proposals for increased federal funding to combat the opioid epidemic through ad campaigns and health programs. But his call for the death penalty immediately drew condemnation from treatment advocates, law enforcement officials and civil liberty organizations.Jesselyn McCurdy, deputy director of the American Civil Liberties Union´s Washington

President Trump predicted Tuesday night that Republicans "will keep the House majority" after November´s midterm elections -- and warned of dire consequences if they didn´t. Speaking to the National Republican Congressional Committee´s annual March fundraising dinner in Washington, the president warned that Democrats would block efforts to secure America´s borders and try to raise taxes. "They´re actually working right now to increase taxes and I´m saying, ´How do you lose to that?´" Trump said. "They want to increase taxes. Maybe they´ll call that tax reform." The president described House Democrats as being "way outside the American mainstream" and warned that

FBI Director Christopher Wray says President Trump has never made any requests of him regarding the federal Russia probe, but does not deny reports that he threatened to resign after he was encouraged to fire people under his charge.“He’s never asked me to do anything with the Russia investigation,” Wray told NBC News’ Pete Williams in an interview clip shown on Tuesday.Wray´s assertion stands in stark contrast to that of former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by Trump last year. Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee last June that Trump requested his loyalty and pressed him to

He wrote that Fox News “has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration,” adding he was “ashamed” of his association with Fox.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano explained Monday why he believes the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe could be viewed as "obstruction of justice." (Snip) Napolitano said he sees the firing as "reckless" and "vindictive" because McCabe is "more likely than not to be a witness" against Sessions´ boss, President Trump. "Firing him in that environment could very well be interpreted as an effort to diminish his effectiveness as a witness. What´s that called? Obstruction of justice," said Napolitano, adding he´s unsure if Special Counsel Robert Mueller will pursue such a case. Napolitano said on "America´s Newsroom"

Officials in a Minneapolis school district are trying to figure out why black students are suspended three times more often than their white peers, according to a Sunday report. Black students have a 338 percent higher chance than white students to be suspended at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis, Minn., according to The New York Times. Black students make up 41 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s student body, but 76 percent of its suspensions. The black students constantly tell the principal, “The teacher only sees me,” Justice Page Principal Erin Rathke said. She responds, “Yes, that’s probably true.”

SAN FRANCISCO — A woman in Tempe, Ariz., died after being hit by a self-driving car operated by Uber, in what appears to be the first known death of a pedestrian struck by an autonomous vehicle on public roads. The Uber vehicle was in autonomous mode with a human safety driver at the wheel when it struck the woman, who was crossing the street outside of a crosswalk, the Tempe police said in a statement. The episode occurred overnight, although the authorities did not specify whether it was late Sunday or early Monday. The woman was not publicly identified. An

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions. The Deep State shenanigans run very deep and in 2016 are linked to the Obama White House. Barack Obama

The suspect and a friend reportedly pulled up to the drive-thru of the McDonald’s just before 11 a.m. on March 18, where they placed an order for a breakfast sandwich with bacon, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. But upon receiving a breakfast sandwich with sausage instead, the woman became angry. “What the [expletive] is this?
