Telling off the MIC is probably the gutsiest thing he's done. :nod: :nod: :nod:

And until he's brought troops home - his announcement means jack shit.
Agreed. Now if only the Senate didn't vote down a troop withdrawal... :ohno:
By a vote of 60-33, the Senate voted to table the Paul-Udall amendment to withdraw U.S. forces from Afghanistan. Tabling a measure effectively kills it. The amendment would have also paid those troops a $2,500 bonus and repealed the 2001 use of force authorization that began the Afghanistan war.

Crazier than a rouge judge trying to prosecute even when the prosecution recommends dropping charges?


Hint: I'm talking about Flynn. :lol:
A rouge judge? Is that someone that critiques the shades of makeup - someone that didn't like the orange tones of Trump's rouge? :lol:
Someone needs to read up on jellybelly's Russian abortion thread. :lol:

He'll just:
1) Deny that Trump was responsible for the accomplishment
b) argue that it isn't a significant accomplishment
III) cherry-pick the accomplishments he can use 1 and b on and ignore the others.

One of Qanon’s major promotional websites Has been taken down. Trump likes them, the one gal in Georgia who will win the general election is openly a supporter. There’s a local Spokane politician who just got nailed by a reporter for her support.

Glad the President is able to rise above the fray.


Asked about QAnon last month, Trump said he doesn’t “know much about the movement” but that “they like me very much, which I appreciate.”

“These are people that don’t like seeing what’s going on in places like Portland, Chicago and New York and other cities and states. ... I’ve heard these are people that love our country and they just don’t like seeing it.”

When a reporter from NBC News told Trump about QAnon’s beliefs that he is fighting a Satanic sex-traffic ring, the president replied: “Is that supposed to be a bad thing? If I can help save the world from problems, I’m willing to do it, I’m willing to put myself out there.

"And we are actually, we’re saving the world from radical left philosophy that will destroy this country,” he added

But wait! There’s more!!!

Time to ammo up because the lefties are coming for ya!!!!! They’re already here!

Michael Caputo, the assistant secretary of health for public affairs, told a Facebook audience without evidence that left-wing hit squads were being trained for insurrection, and he accused C.D.C. scientists of “sedition.”

Mr. Caputo on Sunday complained on Facebook that he was under siege by the media and said that his physical health was in question and his “mental health has definitely failed.”

“I don’t like being alone in Washington,” he said, describing “shadows on the ceiling in my apartment, there alone, shadows are so long.” He then ran through a series of conspiracy theories, culminating in a prediction that Mr. Trump will win re-election but his Democratic opponent, Joseph R. Biden Jr., will refuse to concede.

“And when Donald Trump refuses to stand down at the inauguration, the shooting will begin,” he said. “The drills that you’ve seen are nothing.” He added: “If you carry guns, buy ammunition, ladies and gentlemen, because it’s going to be hard to get.”

He's saving the entire world now? I guess someone should tell Trump the stuff the "radical left" wants have existed in the rest of the Western world for a while now, even the "conservative" ones. His buddies in the UK and Israel would be considered "radical" by his definition.

Every country has issues, but these "radical" nations aren't heaps of smoldering ruins the last time I checked.

Peace in our time?

Skelly's right, you're making the allusion to the Chamberlain quote and misusing it.

1) When they came up with the Munich Accord and decided to give Hitler part of Czechoslovakia, they forgot to include the Czechs on it. At least here, Trump has all the parties of this agreement together (assuming that the Palestinians aren't part of it as Israel's not annexing any more land as a result of these agreements).

2) Obviously Chamberlain's policy of appeasement failed, and WWII ensued. To Trump's credit, he's the kind of disruptor/non-politician that could actually make a moment like this possible and it could actually work. A more status-quo President/politician could never have taken the steps he did to upset the normal, accepted state of things in the Mideast. His stance vis a vis Iran has been a sharp departure from those who came before him and has largely led to this kind of diplomatic breakthrough. Certainly unconventional and, intentional or not, apparently working.

It's a start but let's see some actions.
