Title: Will Trump go down as the worst president ever?
Post by: Propeus The Fallen on October 13, 2017, 09:25:10 AM
I mean, I'm pretty sure he's going to lock up worst modern day president by the end of the year, but can he ever unseat James Buchanan as the worst president ever?

We'll see how he compares to Jackson.  As far as mordern presidents go, I think he has it in the bag.

Agreed

Trump is the best thing that happened to Dubya. That and not having to be president anymore.

But yeah Trump will probably be top three with Jackson and Nixon.

People act like they actually like Dubya now. Posting pics of him laughing with Michelle, talking about "This is how friendship looks" and the like.

That's says it all.

How do you have James Buchanan not the worst? The guy let the Civil War happen!! Look, I get that Andrew Jackson was a racist and he is probably in hell for what he did but he did take the power that was the rich and elite and give it to the common man. Was a war hero. He thought against government corruption. Nearly beat his assassin to death. Told South Carolina to screw off when they first talked about splitting from the union.

Do I think he deserves to be on a dollar bill? No. But he shouldn't be recognized as the worst president.

Nixon. Hm, that one I can see because it is more modern with different norms than Jackson and Buchanan. But I still think Buchanan takes it as worse president.  Again he actually did do a few good things.

Buchanan was just horrible all the way around. The guy was a screw-up that was given a position far away and easy...and then somehow people thought that meant he was talented and qualified. In other words, he was a less jackass Trump.

Has anyone mentioned Andrew Johnson yet? That guy has to be among the very worst ever. He did all possible to help the just defeated south restore and reinforce it's racial biases. Which helped foster a setting where bigoted organizations like the KKK could feel comfortable and thrive. His mistakes and outright bigotry continue to reverberate until this day. For worst ever, it's is probably between him and Buchanan imo. Who was every bit as much of a shit as Prop has described.

Trump certainly seems to be on a path to join them at the bottom of the barrel. He's already much worse than Nixon. Who obvious reasons aside, actually did some positive things of consequence in his time. Would we ever see Trump taking part in studying environmental problems and creating the EPA? Or fostering better relations with China? The Don is fine with inviting nuclear war, while undoing pollution standards on the homefront. And doing so in the name of "small businesses." Which is bullshit. The local deli, pizzeria, or gift store are not creating mass waste and engaging in dumping. The energy and chemical conglomerates are the ones doing that. With Trump executive order and crony appoint clearing the way for them to poison everyone else.

Reagan deserves a mention as being especially terrible among the modern group as well. All short term thinking and feel good symbolism. But he, more than any other President, helped create the blueprint for the modern GOP. Which has become a party of radicals that mass empire and military industrial complex build. While draining power and domestic resources from average citizens. Things might have been so much better if the elder Bush has won in 1980 instead.

Yeah, if I have Buchanan as number one, Johnson has to be in my top five somewhere. Anyone see that movie on TMC about Johnson, yeah, I'm from Tennessee and I admit it's pretty much all garbage.

Actually, come to think of it alot of the presidents from that time, like Pierce should easily be in the top ten.

And yeah, Jackson was racist, but he did do a lot of good too...compared to people ahead and behind him. I mean, wow.

Nixon was actually okay, weird, but okay, until Kennedy and his cheap ass tricks ruined him and made him what we got as president.

There was actually a pretty long stretch of time when the President was almost irrelevant. America was basically ruled by Congress from roughly just after the Civil War until WWI. After that the Executive branch gradually gained more power, becoming massively powerful once the era of the Military Industrial Complex kicked in. That's why do few Presidents from that chunk of history are remembered.

Nixon overall wasn't a bad president; his legacy is just so caught up with the Watergate stuff that it's hard to see past it sometimes. Reagan was a terrible piece of shit, though.

Comparing Trump to other unsuccessful presidents is also very contingent on historical circumstances. If Trump had been president in Buchanan's place, it's entirely possible the final outcome would have been worse than it was. Trump just hasn't had the opportunity to screw up that badly yet, but not for lack of trying -- he seems keen to get millions of Koreans killed, to blow up the Middle East, to destroy the U.S. and the world economy, to alienate traditional U.S. allies, and possibly even get into a war with China or something if he's able to. And if all else fails, he might just multiply the U.S. nuclear arsenal by a factor of ten and fire it all.

Trump clearly cant admit her wrong

This came from people attacking him for not reaching out to war familes. So of course he attack obama. And when confronted about this instead of say "Yea I mispoke"   he double down with saying Obama never called Kelly when his son died

turn out Obama had a dinner for four star familes..where kelly was invited to sit at his table next to michelle and him

Once again it's him minimizing their service. As he did when he did avoiding stds was his personal Vietnam, or when he said he likes soldiers who weren't captured.

The wife verified it and also claimed he didn't even know her husband's name.

Trump? Absolutely.

Sure, we've had other presidents who've made the most bone-headed of mistakes,
were racist, owned slaves, cheated on their wives, illegal activities, etc., but the
Donald is every bit as bad and possibly worse.

The list goes on and on for Donald, and has it even been a year into his presidency yet?
And look at all the shit this idiot gets himself and others into. That says a lot.

Again I put this by how I would react if someone else did it. like someone like who I voted for like an Obama or Hillary

not going to say how the republicans would react..which is basicly burn the white house to the ground. But how I would personaly react


I think if Obama tried to make the crazy ass claim..they were the only ones who every contacted a fallen solider family..I would say that was an easily provable load of bullshit. Hell I might give them a benifit of the doubt and say it was a slip of the tongue. If they then DOUBLE DOWN on it..and the insane claim they never called a person family..when it  clear proof they were at the person Dinner table...I would start questioning their sanity


Somehow Trump given a speacial passed to bullshit due to bullshitting so much. Where if you have to call him out on his bullshit so much...you start looking like the asshole. When really that shouldnt be the case. Can see why it tiring because he keeps doing crazy shit. But if the president..the most powerfull man in the world keep doing crazy ass shit...then the media will report on it

Currently he saying he has proof that the congresswoman was lying. Any other president the media would hound the guy for the proof he said he has. But they will drop this..and move on to Trump next crazy ass shit.

He’s kept us out of war with Syria (for now.) He’s childish on Twitter and oftentimes an ass, but I don’t see how this makes him the worst President so far.

He has specifically continued wars he insisted he was pulling America out of for years. Just one of his many, many, many documented lies.

He has also signed an executive order to force military pilots out of retirement at his discretion. He needs someone to fly those shitty jets we keep wasting billions on. Billions he personally claimed as a "win for Trump".

He has antagonized world powers publicly and behind closed doors, unquestionably weakening our stance and leverage for any attempts at diplomacy.

He disrespects the troops repeatedly, and has done so for the entirety of his "political career" with no signs of slowing down.

He sold 12 billion worth of fighter jets to Qatar right after publicly declaring them a terrorist state.

Trump insisted the Saudis were responsible for 9/11 and should be held accountable. Naturally, he sold them 110 billion worth of weapons.

Meanwhile, he cried like an incompetent little bitch about providing South Korea with resources while completly failing to understand an enormous part of their "payment" is us continually having bases and shit there for OUR strategic needs.

It REALLY seems like you're denying the things he's openly done, or you are completely unaware of anything outside of his Twitter account over the last 9 months.

Almost anyone that likes Trump or the GOP at this point either :

 1. Supports a neo-feudal type of system      or
 2. Has been effectively fooled or lulled by those that do.

I'm not at all convinced that this will be easy to rebound from either. There are simply too many dedicated redneck idiots in the U.S. The good ole boys southern philosophy of making it job one to check the ascent of people that look different even at one's own expense is too prevalent.

Since the he can always paint the media as sensationlist and bashing Trump. After all there an anti trump story every week

But part of that is he KEEPS doing and saying Crazy shit.  Shit that would be a scandal with any other president. But it happesns so frequently..it gets lump together and has an appearance the media just tossing shit at the wall

But what the meida to do...if he proposes something unconstitutional on Wednesday..do you not talk about it because he did something similar on tuesday.


And the bashing works for Trump

A suprising amount of people not only think the media making it up
or agree with taking away media licencees

I mean, seriously, is there one person in any position that is actually qualified for their job? The best I can come up with is Sarah Hucklebee is a much better liar than the other guy. Probably comes with being more evil. :)

There is the new Ambassador to Canada, Kelly Craft. I mean, she is the wife of a coal magnet. If that is not qualified, I don't know what is. She understands there are two sides to every issue!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0t6EYrkt-9c&t=0s

http://www.macleans.ca/politics/kelly-craft-doesnt-understand-clouds-or-climate-change-at-all/

Yesterday, Kelly Knight Craft, newly named U.S. ambassador to Canada, appeared to channel one of this country’s finest songwriters during her nonsensical remarks about “both sides of the science” of climate change. It was the wondrous Joni Mitchell, recall, who sang of looking at clouds, and their magical ability to transform, from “both sides now” in her 1969 song Clouds. Mitchell concluded: “It’s cloud illusion I recall. I really don’t know clouds at all.”

Neither, judging from her comment, does Craft. She doesn’t understand the enigmatic role clouds play in climate change, nor does she comprehend global warming’s effect on glaciers, or rising sea levels or the rising incidence of “floods, droughts and heat waves” noted in communications from the U.S. government before the election of an anti-science ideologue whose administration has taken positions against human-induced climate change, evolution, vaccines, stem cell research—and on and on.

We could deplete precious oxygen dissecting Kelly Craft’s motivation, even her attempt to appear, in her equivocation, conciliatory with the Canadian government (or, for that matter, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers). Certainly there’s much to discuss: Craft’s husband, Joe Craft, a major Trump supporter, made his billions off the backs and health of Kentucky coal miners.........

President Donald Trump's mining regulators are reconsidering rules meant to protect underground miners from breathing coal and rock dust -- the cause of black lung -- and diesel exhaust, which can cause cancer. An advocate for coal miners said Friday that this sends a "very bad signal."

The Mine Safety and Health Administration has asked for public comments on whether standards "could be improved or made more effective or less burdensome by accommodating advances in technology, innovative techniques, or less costly methods."

How's that Trump support sounding now, coal miners?

More proof that these are the people who're really in charge of this administration:

There are so many links here (head spins.)  Anything covering this yet? ( Trump : We need more corruption. )

 https://trofire.com/2017/12/20/trump-embraces-corruption-pulling-us-global-anti-corruption-pact/

Quote
Trump Embraces Corruption By Pulling US Out Of Global Anti-Corruption Pact

Donald Trump has decided to pull the United States out of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative which is more commonly known as the Anti-Corruption Pact. This pact forbade countries from doing business with companies that exploited and bribed government officials around the world in the name of resource extraction. Trump is fully embracing corruption, and as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins points out, he isn’t shy about how corrupt he wants this country to be.

Transcription:

Donald Trump is trying to make it as clear as humanly possible to the American public that not only does he not have a problem with corruption, but that he wants the United States to engage in even more corruption all around the globe. Recently, Donald Trump announced that he was pulling the United States out of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, which is also known as the Anti-Corruption Pact.

This is a pact that started in 2002 by former UK prime minister Tony Blair, and 52 other countries have signed on to this pact. It basically, here’s what it says. It says that if you are an extraction company, like Exxon Mobil or any other oil extraction company in the planet, if you go to another country and you bribe foreign officials with money or gifts or whatever it is, you have to disclose that to the public in that area and the rest of the world so that the people can make an informed choice on whether or not they even want you in their country so that the public gets a say, or at least is informed, about the corruption that’s taking place in their country.

Donald Trump recently decided that that’s no good. The United States doesn’t want to take part of that. We don’t care if companies like Exxon or Chevron are going to other countries, bribing government officials, kicking indigenous people off their lands to extract some oil, things that have happened in the last decade. We don’t care about that. We want these extraction companies to just make more and more money. To hell with everybody else. To hell with this Anti-Corruption Pact.

It is absolutely insane that this particular story has flown under the radar here in the United States. The president literally pulled us out of something called the Anti-Corruption Pact because he wants to help boost the profits of fossil fuel companies all over the planet.

Now, I’m sure Rex Tillerson, Secretary of State and former CEO of Exxon Mobil had absolutely no problem with this. Unfortunately for him, he’s going to be the guy that has to go around all these other countries and explain why the United States suddenly decided that corruption is just fine in our book.

Yes, yes this who they go after first--well, Hillary too because damn if we don't do another fifty investigations something will turn up.

Ah, Chuck Grassley, the guy who thinks the poor should not drink beer or see movies and just give their money to the rich and spends his down time going after The History Channel for having Pickers on instead of a two hour auto biography on George Washington. Go to hell. And take McCain's impy little pal with you.

But hey, anything to distract for President Evil Orange.

http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/368654-trump-says-he-canceled-trip-to-london

Y'know when he's having it bad, he blames Obama for something. Normal stuff he just goes after Hillary or some random person, but when he super ****ed up it's back to Obama.  God, I wish we could go back to Obama. :(



Sadly, the people of London will be denied the honor of being visited by Trump. They really love him over there from what I hear. :)

Yeah, Mueller will go after those guys right after he brings in known conspirator code named: Agent Orange. :)

Remember all those jobs Coal got? Yeah, those are gone and then some. Also, corporations are cutting employees even after their massive tax breaks/cuts/handouts/robbing the american working class.

How bad is it for Republicans when every district looks like it's a fight now?

Huh I've been thinking maybe Trump is the chosen one like how IDW Starscream was the chosen one: an individual people hate so much that it unites everyone to oppose him. Of course Starscream confessed to all his wrongdoings, plead guilty, all so a caring leader could take over. I don't see Trump doing that. Yes, STARSCREAM is a better human being than Trump.

Did Trump make this comment in public, or in a meeting behind closed doors (allegedly)?

If he said it in front of the UN or something, then yeah, that's pretty dumb.

If it was the latter... Who cares? Private conversations are private, and it's to be expected that language will be a bit rough in those types of meetings. My bigger concern is things like this being leaked. If our highest officials can't have meetings without every detail being leaked to the press, that's a big problem. The fact that this is even considered newsworthy shows how idiotic WE are.

Because if the exact quote ("why are we taking people from these shithole countries") it implies that the people are as shitty as the countries they come from. The idea gets more emphasized when he seems more welcoming to countries like Norway.

I not like he just some random dude who said it at a bar

He was in a meeting with fellow polticians..working on policy, talking about policy. And this directly reflect said policies and matches some other stuff he allegeged of saying. Then how he pushed some of his policies.

This not just picking on Trump. Any other presidents saying this.  If Obama said "I dont want anyone from those cracker ass countries to come here" And his policy seem to reflect that it would be an issue.  Hell other people running got shit for stuff they said behind close doors.  And normaly the leaks  here tend to be other republicans..or his people. So maybe if you pick cabinet of total assholes...they may do assholes things like leak shit

Our government's been caught spying on every country in the world, as well as our own population. We've been drone striking the Middle East for the past 16 years. We've meddled in the internal affairs of countless countries, almost always to their detriment, and our own. Invaded Irag on a lie, then caused the deaths of 500,00 children because of an embargo. We arm violent groups of people who then get turned loose to do our bidding. We've allowed guns to be sold to the worst drug cartels in the world. We've blackmailed civil rights leaders. This is just off the top of my head.

A President calling a country a shithole in a private conversation does not get my jimmies rustled.

Did this statement change your opinion of Trump? Are you surprised he speaks crudely in meetings? Are you surprised Trump has a negative view of Haiti? I'm assuming the answer to the above is no.

My larger concern is the inability of Democrats and Republicans to work together on everything. Every fucking issue is a deadlock. If I'm pissed about something, it's that this is another distraction from our government hammering out a point-based immigration system that prioritizes desired skills, educational level, language ability, relative youth and health, and ability to find employment of applicants like EVERY OTHER FUCKING MODERN COUNTRY HAS.

Of course I'm not surprised nor does that change my opinion. Instead it backs my ideas he's a crude asshole that is going to shutdown any good policy that comes his way because he's already got biases about certain people. So yeah it would be great if Dems and Reps can sit down and iron it out but when the guy at the head of the table can't even be a little tactful and a policy meeting it doesn't really assure me its going to happen.

Would you rather Trump's comments not have been leaked if it made a solid immigration deal more likely? Or would you prefer that they were leaked, even if it means making a deal less likely?

I'd be a lot more upset if he were talking about American citizens. And I mean about the actual people, not a city or region. Because I routinely refer to places like Detroit and Binghamton as shitholes.

But fuck it, what did Ted Cruz say about New Yorkers? They have shitty values? I didn't mind, he's absolutely right. New Yorkers are by and large bitter assholes and I curse every day I wake up in this fetid pit of a city.

And if the quote is accurate he did comment on the people. His question equates the people to the "shithole" country.

Yes and new York told him to go fuck himself and voted against him.  Because they might feel the hatred for them may effect how he govern

Just like Trump dislike for people from a certain region may effect his polices



Listen I get wanting both sides to agree.  But at some point...The guy at the head of the country got to help with that.  If the head of the country activly going against people uniting people...that going to be a huge road block


at some point the president hold some responbility in the division. Becuase he is the president.  Meeting people half way is nice

But if its

person 1- I am going to beat you to death

Person 2- What no

Person 1- Find I will only beat you HALF to death

That not the meeting people half  I want.  If one side pushes stuff to such an extreme...it makes even the half way mark an extreme mark

Why cant you do both

I mean bombing are not a good thing

Neither having a guy who clearly and lot of the times openly racist, and might be a mad man..at the heard of the worlds most powerfull country. Namely when some connected

Disliking trump doesnt mean you cant dislike the people in the passed. People like to pretend the media just picking on Trump just because he Trump. Yea party it becausr the media dont like him.  On the other hand it just holding him to the same standard

I mean lets say if it was president Hillary and in a middle of the media she stop to say

"Hey we all hate the jews right"

That would be a story worth telling in the news. Wouldnt make any other bad stuff she did not worth telling. But if your a news reporter..your going to give that some news. You be well in your right. And you can replace any person with that.
 Because that shit effect our relatontions around the world. I may effect how jewish people see the president..and may make them worried for the future. Namely when its a pattern of it.

And it not like he shouldnt expect this to come out. His shit always leak. That among his cabinet.  People he hired. Let alone meeting with people who directly against  his policies.  He should know at some point to stop blurting crazy shit out loud by now.  It leaks all the damm time.  First few...find give you a mulligan.

Again if the president saying openly racist that going to be the news story for a bit

Today saw them talking about the iran deal
Daca
North Korea
The crazy ass judge who running for senator

This week news talk about taxe
Puetro Rico
Taxes


Now could they adjust how much they talk about each. Yea. But they talk about. Just because the media doesnt focused on those other issue enough...doesnt mean this issue that does relate to policy not worthy of being talked about

On a xenophobia scale of 1 to 10, Trump calling Haiti a shithole barely registers. Is Trump calling for sanctions against Haiti? Is he asking for permission to invade Haiti? Are we going to conduct drone strikes against Haiti? Are we cutting diplomatic ties with Haiti? 

Did Trump saying this shatter anyone's illusions of him as a great lover of Haiti?

I'm not defending what he said. It's crude and simplistic.

Again he's not just calling Haiti a shithole. He's equating the people to the quality of the country. He's questioning why we should take anyone from that country and that seems one step away from creating anti-shithole country policies.

And the thing is we can focus on everything since we actually can't actively change them. We can just make a list of grievances and use that as an argument as part of why he should be impeached/voted out.

And this IMHO is pretty good evidence to anyone who claims he isn't racist/xenophobic.

Also guess it depends on what he consider Americans
Does he he consider the Daca people Americans. Past comments about anchors babies and stuff make me question that
Which by the way part of what they were talking about in the meeting. It not like he was with his friend at a Buffolo wild wings shooting the shit..and there for it has no stakes

Does he view Puetro Rico as Americans. His comment and response  to the crisis makes me question that


And as neo said this one more thing to ad to this guys probally a xenophone and racist.   Which going to affect how he govern Americans.

now it make some people say "meh we know he racist...whats a big deal"

You keep saying "There are so many more important things!" like all the other things don't matter at all. They all matter. Words and actions all matter on the world stage.


When you get elected President, everything you say matters in some way because you are the figurehead of the US. If you say something stupid, it makes America look stupid. If you say something racist, it makes America look racist. If you say something to unite it tends to unite. If you say something to divide, it tends to divide.

Pretending "They're behind closed doors in a 'professional setting' so this is stuff that should be a secret!" is ridiculous. In what way should immigration reform be a secret?

Did you consider what you were saying at all or did you just get mad and type out random shit?

This isn't nuclear protocols or escorting a world leader from the airport to a military base where we're bombing somebody. This is stuff that most definitely belongs in the public eye and since the President is OUR EMPLOYEE, it's odd you want immigration reform kept secret in the first place. There is no national security justification involved here.

And Der Spiegel is pretty much right on the nail with this cover regarding Trump. http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/the-age-of-fire-and-fury-latest-der-spiegel-trump-cover-explained-a-1187633.html

I think it's important that we have a competent diplomatic leader who knows better.  And it's quiet relevant as it's very much a racist statement. He's focused on trying to keep Mexicans and Muslims out of the country. And despite the condition of Haiti The US has actually has a role in keeping it poor. 

Here's some things to check out.

And regardless of where he's at he shouldn't have said it at all.  Especially, when the US has had a large role in fucking over that country as we've done for other countries.  Trump recently asked a Korean female what she is.  Then said why don't we have her talk to the Koreans.  Just on the merit of her being Korean.

First: Steele wrote a dossier. Not a memo. They're entirely different types of aggregated information. Dossiers are longer and much more in depth.

Second: YOU are the one asserting the memo is 100% false.

Third: the Nunes memo specifically asserts Steele had proved reliable in the past, they just don't think what he provided this time was true. Why? Because he doesn't like the individual the dossier was about(Donald Trump). This is a critically stupid foundation to build on when you try and discredit something from an individual you are actively admitting is reliable IN THE SAME DOCUMENT. Writing a dossier requires information. It does not require objectivity.
Title: Re: Will Trump go down as the worst president ever?
Post by: MTL76 on February 02, 2018, 04:04:48 PM
Isn’t the problem with Steele’s dossier that:

-it has not been corroborated by any other sources?
-it was paid for by the DNC?
-it was used as the justification to obtain the warrant to spy on a member of Trump’s campaign?
-the court issuing the warrant was not made aware that the dossier was the only reason the warrant was being sought?

These aren’t rhetorical questions, I’m legitimately asking. It seems like each media outlet has a diffferent spin on things.

Trump clearly has made poor choices in picking people to work for him, and there may be legitimate reasons why they were being watched. But the FBI withholding the source of their suspicions from the court shows that maybe they didn’t think they’d get their warrant if they were more forthcoming. It may have been sheer laziness on their part. There’s no evidence someone like Obama or Clinton ordered them to do anything.

Isn’t the problem with Steele’s dossier that:

-it has not been corroborated by any other sources?
The reason the dossier was taken seriously in the first place was because it corroborated intelligence that would most likely not have been shared with Steele. Somebody with a reputation of reliability comes up to you and says starts telling you shit you already had some supporting evidence for, you are likely to listen. Like virtually every dossier around, not all of it is accurate. Some extrapolations are made when dossiers are created because they are often built off interviews, recordings you only have one side of, out of context conversations, photographs, rumors, etc.

When Donald Trump's own children, the ones he claims are running his entire "multi-billion-dollar" corporate empire right now, repeatedly assert their family and holdings have specific financial and personal ties to Russia over the course of several years, you have to consider the following about their connections to Russia:
Were they lying then to try and impress everyone? Possibly.
Were they telling the truth then to try and impress everyone? Probably.

Are they lying now about connections to Russia? Probably.
Are they telling the truth now about connections to Russia? Possibly.


-it was paid for by the DNC?
FusionGPS was contracted in February 2015 by a Republican website called Washington Free Beacon, financed by a GOP megadonor/superdonor Paul Singer. After Trump wound up beating the establishment candidates, they were going to drop the research. In April 2016, the DNC and Clinton campaign continued funding the research.

Unethical, certainly. Does that inherently make any of it untrue? I think doubting is fair, but asserting it's untrue simply because the DNC kept the ball rolling is patently ridiculous. Dossiers are aggregated information. You are going to aggregate what is being sought.

SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats), personal connections, financial connections, etc. are all fair game when you are building a dossier. There is bias in every dossier ever written. Just because the author of this one disliked Trump it's automatically false? While in the same memo they're saying Steele has a proven history of reliable information?

One of Steele's informants, a high-rank Russian general, was killed. It is speculated (and asserted specifically to Congress by FusionGPS) he was killed for contributing to the dossier.

Oddly, the same people jumping on board with every conspiracy theory around are claiming THIS death is a coincidence, but every other death is somehow the doings of a Globalist mastermind somewhere.


-it was used as the justification to obtain the warrant to spy on a member of Trump’s campaign?
It was used as additional justification to spy on a guy they were already watching for a couple years.


-the court issuing the warrant was not made aware that the dossier was the only reason the warrant was being sought?
He was already being watched. The dossier was used as additional support for the spying.



These aren’t rhetorical questions, I’m legitimately asking. It seems like each media outlet has a diffferent spin on things.
I think they're fair questions and agree we're getting all kinds of stories. Anybody on any side pretending this is an all-or-nothing situation is just engaging in partisan nonsense. Not everything Trump (or his associates/kids) has done was out of malice, stupidity, etc.


Trump clearly has made poor choices in picking people to work for him, and there may be legitimate reasons why they were being watched. But the FBI withholding the source of their suspicions from the court shows that maybe they didn’t think they’d get their warrant if they were more forthcoming. It may have been sheer laziness on their part. There’s no evidence someone like Obama or Clinton ordered them to do anything.
The Nunes memo only includes some information. They cherrypicked a lot of documents. That's what the Democrat memo is/was asserting. It says Nunes' memo looked for specific info to fit an agenda and excluded the rest of the intelligence other members of the SAME INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE saw to build his case against the Russia investigation.

Today at one of his rallies, Trump literally said if you don't clap for him it should be treason.

There's a distinct difference between claiming that a politician committed actual treasonous acts and trying to make not clapping into an actual treasonous act.

They're citing specific acts that would be considered treasonous if Obama and his family did them.

Trump is actually saying with his own mouth if you don't clap for him, it should be treason.

Anyway, this week he'll be doing tariff's on steel and aluminum. Which nearly everyone who doesn't hold a can of soup like a jackass agrees will hurt the economy. And by hurt I mean, hitting it with your car, and then backing over it a few times.

Hey, gun nuts, remember when you were worried about someone taking your guns? Trump just admitted he wants to and take away your due process.

Hope Hicks has left the administration because Trump got made at her for admitting she's told white lies. So basically, if you thought Trump was insane before, watch out. His handler is gone.

And to be fair, Trump isn't the only person who sucks.

Trump’s cave to elephant and lion hunters


Well, some people do want to shoot elephants, for reasons that are all but impossible to fathom. Their meat doesn’t appeal to Western palates; they aren’t so abundant that their numbers must be reduced; and taking part in a guided hunt costs tens of thousands of dollars. But the Trump administration, after some delay, has sided with the shooters against the prey.

Elephants are unusually intelligent creatures with rich social lives and elaborate means of communication. They are also under unending siege. In the past three decades, the number in Africa has plummeted by two-thirds, leaving just 400,000. About 20,000 are killed each year for their tusks.

Some African governments allow them to be taken by trophy hunters. One of those sportsmen is Donald Trump Jr., who in 2012 was photographed holding the bloody tail of a slain elephant.

Under President Barack Obama, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service tried to discourage this macabre pastime by outlawing imports of elephant trophies from specified countries. African elephants are listed as “threatened” under the Endangered Species Act, and the law says their body parts may be brought in only if “the killing of the trophy animal will enhance the survival of the species.”

In Zambia and Zimbabwe, the agency was not convinced that the governments’ policies served the purpose of conserving elephants. So Americans who wanted to shoot an elephant so they could bring back its head to hang on the wall were out of luck.

Last year, the agency announced it would lift the ban. But the decision sparked furious criticism, even from some conservative commentators — and prompted President Donald Trump to block it temporarily.

The president tweeted that he would be “very hard pressed to change my mind that this horror show in any way helps conservation of Elephants or any other animal.”

Now, however, his administration has quietly given its sanction to the practice — not just for elephants but also for lions. Instead of forbidding trophies from Zambia and Zimbabwe, the FWS said it would grant permits on a case-by-case basis, under criteria it has yet to state.

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ELIMINATES ANIMAL WELFARE RULE

The Trump administration officially withdrew an Obama-era rule that would set higher standards for the treatment of animals whose meat could be sold as organic.

The rule, created under the United States Department of Agriculture, would require poultry to be housed in spaces large enough to move freely and fully stretch their wings. Livestock would be required to have some access to outdoor space year round.

The USDA officially overturned the rule Monday, after delaying its implementation three times. It was first created in 2016 and built on seven years of deliberation.

I'll be genuinely surprised if he doesn't "re-authorize" the deal in coming weeks and take credit for them building a factory over here or something because Qualcomm doesn't manufacture in-house. They outsource an overwhelming amount of their supply chain and rely on suppliers with excellent core competencies. Only specific tasks are performed internally.

This is a little deeper than just criticism. Its a full on smear campaign on the ones he doesn't like and endorsement and law changes for the ones that support him. He's even trying to fuck with Amazon only because he doesn't like the Washington Post.

A citizen, including the President, criticizing mainstream media outlets is not an attack on the First Amendment. In fact, it is protected by the First Amendment.

The POTUS isn't a private citizen. The same rules don't apply to that position as it does to other citizens. His words carry far more weight/consequences.

Continually targeting media as 'fake news' is definitely an attack on the Media. 
If anything anyone what he says is fake news going back as far as the Central Park incident, he spent
6 years broadcasting the fake news of Obama's birth certificate, and his claim about Amazon not paying as much as they should in taxes and to the post office is pure bullshit. 

And then there's this also.

The way Trump is going about trade has the potential to be the worst thing for the average American yet in the medium term.

Somehow, he either doesn't realize, or doesn't care, that the way the trade structure is going is allowing the U.S. to live above its means. "Here, have some fantasy dollars while we get real stuff in exchange" is an amazing deal. Trump is aiming to blow that up to keep more of the fantasy dollars.

So, the end result will be that a lot of consumer products will get more expensive, which will make living conditions less tolerable for the poor and the middle class. Meanwhile, the Chinese will be squeezing the exports that are crucial to his own constituency in particular.

On the current course, he'll be losing the trade war while making life worse for Americans and making China great again.

He already conclusively proved he doesn't understand the enormous value we get by countries allowing us to have bases on their soil.

He's trying to turn it into some shitty Brooklyn protection racket, shaking them down for money when the strategic value of these locations is way too big to walk away from.

if Russia has the means and desire to end the Syrian civil war, we should let them. Our goals in Syria should be:

1. No deployment of American troops
2. Regional stability
3. Regional stability
4. Regional stability

The Assad regime is likely the best bet for regional stability. That doesn’t make him a nice guy, but it is what it is.

Former president Barack Obama did not attend Nancy Reagan's funeral in 2016 or Betty Ford's in 2011, and Bill Clinton did not attend the funeral of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Clinton did speak at a graveside service for her at Arlington National Cemetery in 1994."

As for the Jail thing, I dount it. Since the only way you can prosecute is Impeachment. And already the dems say they shouldnt talk about that and back out of fear it may energize the trump base. No talk of enegizing the Dems base.  Which misses the point...republicans always come on big in the mideterms..and at some point you got to get the left to come out


And it not like The Russia thing is the only crime Trump did. So even if people want to dimiss the russian thing out of fear of cause WORLD WAR 3...there crimes he kind of did in peopel face, with the conflcts of interest, breaking the emmoulments clause multiple times, and sorts of crooked shit

Only hope if trump done his crime so blatant..that it FORCES the dems to grow a spine

But dont know if they have the staying power. Because they already asking..how long can the dems push this case

Hm. Just like every time NK wants to talk peace they pull this...and the Trump administration was surprised. But hey, let's give this man a Nobel Peace Prize. :)

It wouldn't surprise me if North Korea set up fake peace talks just so they could pull out later because of Trump and damage him even more internationally.

Damage him internationally? He just launched a torpedo to the potential for negotiating with North Korea by proving that the U.S. can't be trusted by pulling out of the deal with Iran (that Iran was upholding). Then the U.S. exercise along with South Korea is making a show of force.

From a negotiating perspective, that means that North Korea has little reason to trust Trump, while he's obviously trying to bully them around. That's a way of pushing them to the table to negotiate if that's their safest option, but it's also a good way to push them away from the table, to procrastinate and delay, or to stick to symbolic measures over real ones, just to give Trump some nice photo opportunities.

And in another international deal, Trump is proving he's not afraid of being the cause of bloodshed, with dozens killed and hundreds wounded thanks to moving an embassy to satisfy a bunch of true believers.

No one needs to "damage" Trump internationally, he's doing that fine on his own. The U.S. is actually threatening to sanction European countries for *not* breaking a deal that everyone else was upholding. The U.S. is threatening to launch an idiotic trade war with both China and the EU.

Now that John Bolton and Mike Pompeo are in, we're likely to see a lot more stuff like that. At this rate, at the end of the Trump regime, he'll probably have succeeded at making China the leading world power in international affairs solely by making the U.S. look completely untrustworthy and irresponsible.

Y'know, I knew Trump as President would be bad--but damn, I didn't think we'd get this bad.

And he also kicked out media outlets in an open forum.

I swear to god, if Obama did just one thing, JUST ONE, of what Trump has done, The Republicans would barge into the White House and throw him out on the street...in front of a mack truck.
