:agree: :wink: How can I say it? Okay, I will say it the same way said it to my ex wives when I handed them the divorce papers; I want you to know it's not you, it's me.

I didn't splain what I meant well. My colorful metaphor "poisonous snakes" refers to the entire sordid battle for power, influence and money going on now among the entire American ruling class. All sides.

Like everyone here, I am shocked by callousness, greed, hypocrisy, lies, and the total abandonment of any desire to love and care for the country and it's citizens, all of them. Anything the brawling elites do is designed to win an advantage vis a vis the other side. The entire foreign policy, the foreign wars and misadventures have become tools in the internal strife for power.

American maneuvers in the world risking the nuclear war mean nothing for the people who unleash them except how they affect the internal war of the ruling cliques. Sending the aircraft carriers to threaten tiny backward countries, dropping huge bombs or sending the Tomahawk missiles somewhere have nothing to do with any coherent strategy abroad but everything to do with the domestic battles for power.

At home nothing can be done properly because the brawling parties think that undermining and ultimately destroying their opponent trumps the cooperation necessary to have a well run country. And of course like in every civil war people who become the most influential are the ones who only care about their victory over the other faction and don't give a proverbial wooden nickel about their fellow citizens and things that would make their country truly great; the progressive medical care, infrastructure, well paying jobs, fast trains, good education, protection of the environment, racial equality, etc.

That describes the GOP, but not the Democrats.

2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

Besides all the other reasons we've heard by now, he was, as usual, speaking to his supporters here. And whatever the (lawful) outcome of his actions may be, it's the Democrats who are to blame.

I agree. I'd say the link in the OP is an example of the latter and its wishful thinking.

Thanks, good read.
Trump has definitely committed perjury when he took the Oath of Office.

The latest thing iz Jared Kushner & Flynn trying to set up a secret communication link at the Russian Embassy on Desember 2nd 2016.

More evidens that Trump and hiz gang werent expecting to win, so wen they did, they were scrambling to hide their many Kremlin connectionz before the inauguration. Pretty soon, they figured out that it wuznt possible, so needed a way to communicate quickly, directly and secretly. They need a way to warn Putin about imminent threts from our intel ajensyz and resiev instructionz az fast az possible.

Not only do they need to keep our intel ajents frum uncovering secrets, they cant risk taking actionz that Putin mite interpret az them duble crossing him, cauzing him to reveal sum or all uv the Kompromat.

Before it is all over, I look for Trump to pardon Kushner and Flynn, and then Pence to pardon Trump.

This was just the absolutely worst thing that could happen. It's called "the two way street". At first the Russians would feed Trump good information and make him look good. The Russians would then start blackmailing them and start demanding information.

The Americans did this to Australia. The Australian intelligence liaison officer in the USA, Mervin Jenkins started to give Australian secrets to the Americans. He committed suicide when confronted. We cut off our intelligence from the USA for two years.


http://nautilus.org/publications/books/ ... n-jenkins/

In the first part of 1999 Jenkins came under great personal and professional pressure as a result of competing demands from DIO and the US intelligence organisations with which he was tasked with liaising. The issue was the extent to which Australian intelligence information concerning Indonesian military sponsorship of militia violence in East Timor was to be passed onto the United States. As Desmond Ball subsequently documented, the Australian government was well aware of Indonesian military planning to mobilize East Timorese militia as a result of DIO signals intelligence interception. Most such material was marked “AUSTEO – Australian Eyes Only”. Jenkins was directed to withold much of this information from the US, at a time when militia violence was mounting, and the Australian government was maintaining it knew little. DIO initiated an investigation into Jenkins for allegedly passing or attempting to AUSTEO (Australian Eyes Only) material in 1998 and early 1999.

He is respected by virtually everyone and is working on programs that will save our country billions of dollars. In addition to that, and perhaps more importantly, he is a very good person.


...and besides apparently being an unkind landlord, he's anything but 'innocently naive'.

I predict that Trump will go down in history as the most successful president ever, and not be surpassed in that assessment for hundreds of years – for attaining his goal, of being the worst president ever. ;)

Looks like the wagons are circling (along with the vultures). Remember when the White House inner circle with Nixon became just the triangle Nixon-Haldeman-Erlichmann? We’re getting there slowly. It won’t be long until it will be just Trump, Kushner, and maybe Bannon. The difference is Haldeman and Erlichmann got along with each other.

What do you call this... cluster? :?

...Trump’s former communications director Jason Miller was caught by Daily Beast editor John Avlon using fake statistics to support absurd points. EPA head Scott Pruitt also claimed Thursday that the president’s decision isn’t about climate denial. Today, Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) also claimed the 4.5 billion-year-old sun is no longer reliable and Trump’s economic advisor Steve Moore didn’t know the difference between 1,000-year-old windmills in Holland and wind energy mills in western Kansas.

Someone is moving and shaking in D.C. and Maryland... :dwarf:


Racine said he felt obligated to sue Trump in part because the Republican-controlled Congress has not taken the president’s apparent conflicts seriously.

“We’re getting in here to be the check and balance that it appears Congress is unwilling to be...”

The suit will seek an injunction to force Trump to stop violating the Constitution...

Racine said he can see Trump International Hotel from his window and "we know exactly what's going on there."

He sounds disturbingly similar to a particular someone from Alaska. :?
