It doesn't matter if he's using them as props, this parade will be reported on very positively

by who?

aside from Fox News.

 

just the idea of this parade is already catching serious bipartisan flak.

I wouldn't bet against all major news outlet reporting on it positively. Do you remember last year when Trump gave a halfway decent speech where he just read exactly off the prompter, and the all the media outlets were talking of "presidential Trump", about how eloquent he was, what a change of pace, how he was finally acting like a president?

 

Or when he ordered those missiles against some base in Syria, all the media outlets backing him, reporting chemical weapons on the hands of Syria, and how Trump wasn't going to back down in face of the terror brought about by Assad? Heck, I had liberal friends who were at the knees praising Trump for taking action against the tyrants.

 

Of course, he threw it all away the next day when he wrote some dumb sh*t on twitter, but media outlets swallowed the presidential Trump story hook line and sinker. If he's smart about this parade, and compare it to what France does, he'll get them to report it exactly the way he wants it.

turns out I spoke too soon.

even State Run Television disapproves...

 

 

 

there's plenty of trepidation to go around.

in addition to being a complete waste of time and money, it's just another example [in a long line] of behaviors and statements that prove Trump is just wanna-be petty-dictator.

HOLY F*CK! Fox News just f*cked up big time. It was revealed a while back that Sean Hannity had a secret channel to Assange because some woman impersonated him to get in touch with Assange, and Assange said back then that he's got dirt on Senator Warner. Guess what? Last night Fox News revealed a "bombshell" about Warner. They said that info comes from a "Republican source". There's no reason to emphasize that it's a Republican source unless you don't want people to think that it's from someone else. Someone like Assange.

 

Also, this so-called bombshell was quickly shot down by Marco Rubio (a Republican). Republicans were aware of the full context of this story, they were aware of these texts and that there's nothing there. The only people who could have access to Warner's texts and who could think that those texts can be used against Warner are people who aren't a part of the American political sphere, like Russian hackers and/or Wikileaks. There's no real reason to think that some other Republican somehow stumbled upon Warner's text messages, especially after Assange spilled the beans to fake Hannity. This little "scandal" lasted for literally less than an hour, and Fox News just shot themselves in the face by running that story.

 

Basically, Fox News is colluding with a hostile foreign agent to interfere with an active investigation and potentially to interfere with the upcoming elections by getting dirt on American senators. This smells like espionage.

 

But it gets worse, much worse. There's a really good chance that Alex Waldman, the guy who Senator Warner texted with, is a confidential witness in Russia investigation, and Fox News might have just ousted him and put his life in danger.

 

Oh, and I almost forgot: https://qz.com/1202800/alexey-navalny-says-oleg-deripaska-transmitted-trump-campaign-information-from-paul-manafort-to-the-kremlin/

Dude, give me a bit of credit.

Lol, what would you deserve credit for? You have nothing meaningful to say. All your posts are vile ad-hominem ramblings.

Yeah I'm a bit of a jerk aye?

 

 

 

I used a term popularized by Peterson. The game is up. I'm busted.

lol do you think Jordan Peterson is as amazing to me as he is to you? If I ran into a bathroom busting for a piss and Jordan Peterson was burning in the urinal, I'd piss in the sink. The guy is an MRA and a torry.

 

No seriously, do you think I can't tell that all of your views are an attempt to emulate Peterson? "Postmodern neomarxism" (lol) isn't the only thing you've said that I've googled and found Peterson rants. The jig is indeed up: even if only some of what you say (y'know, instead of all of it) was ripped from Peterson it would discredit you, because he's an MRA self-help youtube personality. Maybe try not being totally pathetic? Like, do you think I watch youtube videos about how to be a man?

All I see is vile bitter tripe with no substance.

He's kind of a bad MRA considering he is arguing that men should settle down and get married.

He's also not really a tory, considering his arguments that relative poverty causes crime. And even if he were a 'tory', that doesn't make him morally tainted to me actually.

But there's no use discussing any of this with you.

MRA =/= MGTOW. He's an MRA.

If you took your own advice and listened to torries, you'd know that a lot of them admit this. Not all torries are completely and utterly retarded.

Lol, Trump fell into another trap. He refused to release the Dem memo that Democrats and Republicans voted for unanimously. So much for transparency and no coverups.

Hold that thought.

"The level of trust and the level of everything down there is -- it's poison. It's absolute poison down there."

 

Rooney said one reason for the tension is an erosion of trust, exacerbated by an ongoing ethics investigation into the "entire Republican staff," including "the woman up front that answers the phone" for alleged leaks. He later added that the matter was being handled by the Office of Congressional Ethics.

Surely your opinion on leaking extends to actual accusations of actual leaking done by Republicans?

Technically, the House of Representatives can still overrule the President's decision and publish it anyway. Although, I am not sure that is going to have much bipartisan support.

 

In fact, I think Republicans voted for the release of the memo because they knew the President would block it.

Unlike Nunes, Democrats went to proper channels when dealing with classified intel. They sent their memo to the FBI and DOJ first for potential redaction of highly classified intel before they voted to publish it. So once again, you fail.

 

You know, at this point, I think even you know that Trump is guilty. You just want him to get away with it.

Ya know, there is just a monumental difference between people like me and animals like El Diablo.

 

I care about my fellow citizens. He cares about his criminal aliens. I care about societal advancement. He cares about being able to smoke his weed in peace. I want to eradicate corruption in politics. He wants the state to recognize gay relationships.

 

Point being lefties always lack inspiration. Their small minds lead them to seeking small 'victories'. Who cares if the Democratic party is a corrupt, dishonest cult of morons who don't give a f*ck about me. So long as they're willing to accept illegal aliens so I can feel like a good member of "peoplekind" while I get high and use the bathroom correlating to my ever-changing gender, they're good in my book.

 

f*cking lol.

He didn't snub the North Korean delegation?

 

Something tells me he was being evasive to the North Koreans, following orders from the big boss. But it may not matter anyway if this detente actually bears some fruit, since any agreement between the North and South will have to be honored by the US....

 

Maybe this is the Norths' grand strategy going forwards, ignore the US and be more open with the South instead? If it is, it's going to annoy Washington no end!

That's as it should be. South Korea should be out of the US's shadow, and be able to decide its own future by itself. Its interests aren't aligned with the US'.

Elmo pays for the wall, not Mexico.

 

I can't see many people welcoming a budget that axes basic public media services funding to massively increase military and border spending, but this budget does set out The WH spending budget for the year and gives a good indication of what services will be hit. Looks like basic educational services that reach an approximate two thirds of children in the US are the target....

Americans wanted a president that will run the country like a business and they got one. They got the president that bankrupted all of his businesses and now he's doing the same thing to their country.

 

Whatever happened to all those Republicans screaming about Obama and the deficit? Crickets, huh?

I guess it depends on what you consider Americans when it comes to the popular vote and the electoral college. ;)

 

I'm American, I sure as heck didn't want a businessman president.

 

I want a president I don't care about. I want a president that doesn't make me watch CNN all day. I want a president that is just a president and not putting on a show. I want a president who doesn't measure success in TV ratings.

 

Again...I want a president I don't care about. I don't want to care about politics - I've got more important things to dedicate my time to.

 

I don't ask for much.

 

 

 

This Rob Porter wife beating cover up needs to grow more legs. I'd love to see women be the downfall of Trump.

What pisses me off the most is his desire to expand the nuclear arsenal and create variations of it to actually be used. It's just the most asinine, despicable thing to do. America already possesses one of the largest arsenal in the world, and none of it is meant to actually be used. But this lunatic is ordering command to come up with "tactical" versions, that create "smaller" blasts, to be deployed in conflicts around the globe.

 

I'm confident all he wants is to press the nuclear button once, and see a big boom happen, and put on a show of it. All to feed his incredibly fragile ego.

now this is just an echo chamber where we're agreeing with ourselves.

 

where are any of Trump's supporters?

oh right. they're hiding because everything he does is indefensible and putrid.

 

hey guys I'm a great negotiator and businessman. elect me president.

hey guys lets buy more nukes when we already have enough to destroy planet Earth 12 times over. did I mention I'm a great businessman? has anyone checked the national debt lately? did I mention I'm a conservative? what's the deficit up to now? did I mention I'm a good Christian? grab em' by the pussy!

As much as it makes me cringe to acknowledge this, the nuclear modernization initiative for these smaller more-likely-to-be-used nukes started under the Obama administration with his approval. Trump is simply clumsy enough to be emphatic about the program. After all, he loves taking credit for Obama's decisions. I remember Chomsky being upset about it on the radio a couple of years back and giving Obama flack over the decision. Reuters may have also run a story about the program back in early 2016.

 

 

It just so turns out that apart from all the cowboyism and attitude, the military posture of American far right administrations don't differ much from the neoliberal ones. Defense contractors have got to get their welfare check somehow.

Hah, that's even better! He had the opportunity to show up Obama and slash the plans with a view for a more peaceful world, showing that the liberals are the warhawks that they are, and how Obama was a hypocrite for preaching peace while building more nukes, and neglecting to take care of the existing ones. (I've heard horror stories about unsecured silos, aging infrastructure, obsolete computer systems...)

 

Still, he sitll wants to press that bigger redder button his bigger desk, and make America even greater.
