President* Trump

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Trump said in his Christmas message:

"It's the season for giving and for giving back, from supporting folks in need in our communities to reaching out to neighbours who might be alone for the holidays."

Oh, wait, no, that was Trudeau.

Trump was spewing trash talk at P-Lo and the Dems:
https://globalnews.ca/news/6334747/trum ... al-pelosi/
Trump said:
"By willing to put past differences behind us and move forward together, we honour the freedom and democracy once won for us at so great a cost."

...
"But in time, through his teaching and by his example, Jesus Christ would show the world how small steps taken in faith and in hope can overcome long-held differences and deep-seated divisions to bring harmony and understanding."

"Many of us already try to follow in his footsteps. The path, of course, is not always smooth and may at times this year have felt quite bumpy. But small steps can make a world of difference."

Oh wait, no, that was Queen Elizabeth.

Equally deep, unselfish, spiritual and heartfelt:

Donald Trump's latest tweets!
2019 HOLIDAY RETAIL SALES WERE UP 3.4% FROM LAST YEAR, THE BIGGEST NUMBER IN U.S. HISTORY. CONGRATULATIONS AMERICA!

187 new Federal Judges have been confirmed under the Trump Administration, including two great new United States Supreme Court Justices. We are shattering every record! Read all about this in “The Long Game,” a great new book by @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell. Amazing story!

https://t.co/jSSY9yvh2P

https://t.co/kQX5wRIn3X

The ONLY reason we were able to get our great USMCA Trade Deal approved was because the Do Nothing Democrats wanted to show that they could approve something productive in light of the fact that all they even think about is impeachment. She knows nothing about the USMCA Deal!

....the American public’s tone deafness - & it should be intolerable, because the American people have had it with this.” @kilmeade @foxandfriends The Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats have gone CRAZY. They want to make it as hard as possible for me to properly run our Country!

Is that any way to talk about the imPOTUS that single-handedly won the War on Christmas?
In this year’s address, which he offered in both Irish and English, President Higgins touched upon themes of immigration and emigration, as well as the need for action in the face of climate change.
:-|| And it doesn't hurt that he looks like an elf.

Impeached President* Trump

Half of active-duty service members are unhappy with Trump, new Military Times poll shows

Lots of data there, too much to excerpt. Almost none of it is positive for impeached President* Trump.

Leftists are discontent not having their head up Obama's butt. His protégé is available though.

Idk. I suspect the young ones have poor turnout, but perhaps better than US youth on average. The older ones may be pretty good - duty and all that. I posted more as an indicator of generalized patriotic disfavor with impeached President* Trump than for tallying their votes.

Support for Trump’s Removal Grows
More than half of Americans think President Donald Trump's behavior warrants his removal from office and 57% think he's committed an impeachable offense, according to a poll released Friday morning – unwelcome news for a president facing a Senate trial that could begin this month.

The public needle moving is good, but how much does it take before we see real cracks in the Senate?

I'm guessing above 60%.

Dec 27-30 = prewar. Not sure what effect it will have, but we are a bloodthirsty, bigoted, jingoistic nation in general.

Based on what I've seen at LNF, the wingnuts are more entrenched. No surprise. As always, it'll be the middle really that will sway the tide.

And to think, I used to think of the middle as me.

I wouldn't consider LNF posters as the average person though, they are special types of wing-nuts.

As with many other bits of research I've read, I'm reminded that while statistics may not lie, that statisticians definitely do.
"statisticians definitely do"
when well paid
Most people just hung up on Hillary Clinton's pollsters during her campaign.

Perhaps not as bloodthirsty as we used to be, or Americans think impeached President* Trump is worse than our usual.
Here's What Americans Think About Trump's Iran Policy

... Forty-three percent of Americans approve of the decision to order the airstrike that killed Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani, according to the poll, with 38% disapproving and 19% unsure. (Although there’s not yet much additional polling on the strike, a separate YouGov survey found the public about evenly divided on Trump’s decision to kill Soleimani.)

... 84% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents approve of the strike, compared with the 71% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents who disapprove.

... a 57% majority of Americans say they believe the strike makes further military conflict between the U.S. and Iran more likely than before, with just 8% expecting it to act as a deterrent and the rest unsure or saying it would have no effect either way. The public is also about evenly split on the decision to send 3,500 additional U.S. troops to the Middle East, with 40% approving and 39% disapproving.

... Americans say, 43% to 35%, that Trump did not plan carefully enough before ordering the strike. They also say, 44% to 34%, that Trump should have gotten authorization from Congress before ordering the killing.

Image

Americans say, 46% to 40%, that they disapprove of Trump’s handling of Iran issues. Back in July 2018, a poll taken shortly after Trump tweeted an all-caps threat to Iran’s president found a similar margin of disapproval.

In the new survey, Americans say 47% to 32% that Trump does not have a clear strategy for dealing with Iran.

Half the public disapproves of Trump’s overall handling of foreign policy, with 39% approving.
