President* Trump

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

Well this is fun, POSPOTUS is incompetent. Who knew?

Perhaps an environmental saving grace?

Among many other saving graces due to incompetence, probably.

Yeah, well, I didn't count the inevitable ones; just meant intentional suicide. trump will never kill himself but I wouldn't put it past Ivanka or Jared. Rudy will never kill himself, either. Sigh

This story is the first thing I read this morning and I find it to be quite shocking and a very bad sign. trump intends to reduce the staff of the entire National Security Coucil. This man is apparently going to shoot for the moon. He really does need to be stopped before it's too late.

I figure he's going to call each one of them in one by one and give them the Comey lecture about loyalty and how he has to have it. What an asshole.

A distraction from what's on his mind as it were. Since he says the border is SECURE I suppose it would be a good time to cross later tonight.

I was thinking earlier today, and increasingly more early this evening, if the Joint Chiefs of Staff would at this point recognize an illegal order from dear leader. I'm sure the Secretary of Defense would order whatever trump told him to but I have my doubts that the chiefs would comply at this point. Martial law in certain areas and other nefarious stuff is what i was brooding on. Not to mention immediate strike orders on N Korea and or Iran and or China.

Scary thought. It's about all that's separating us from dictatorship. He's already trampled parts of the constitution.

Not the same thing, but the Joint Chiefs of Staff have shamefully complied with throwing our longtime allies the Kurds under the bus in favor of Turkish dictator Erdogan. Genocide in progress.

Federal judges rule against Trump in 3 cases on executive powers

... While Friday’s decisions stem from cases unrelated to the Ukraine matter, they each address what plaintiffs claimed was a president overstepping his constitutional bounds.

Business records

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit upheld a lower court decision, ruling that Congress can see eight years of Trump’s business records held by his accounting firm, Mazars USA....

Denying green cards and visas to low-income immigrants

U.S. District Court Judge George Daniels of the Southern District of New York issued a preliminary nationwide injunction blocking a Trump administration rule set to take effect next week that would have made it easier to deny green cards and visas to immigrants who cannot show they will not require public assistance. After the administration announced the new rule, nearly a dozen states filed suit to block it....

Wall funding

U.S. District Court Judge David Briones, in the Western District of Texas, ruled that the declaration of a national emergency under which Trump diverted funds from other agencies to construct a Mexico border wall was unlawful....
:---P :---P :---P

All but one of the judges, an Obama appointee, was appointed by Bill Clinton. Call it The Clinton's Revenge.

Definitely not the same thing. Sad but not illegal for them to comply. You know they were not happy.

True, but "illegal" has not been much of an impediment in the recent past - convoluted extension of the 9/11 AUMF for 18 years to cover pretty much anything, invasion based on hundreds of lies, slaughtering civilians, torture and abetting torture, rendition and other war crimes.

Yes, as have many other nations.
A history of selling out the Kurds, people with 'no friends but the mountains'

As the skies over northeastern Syria blackened with smoke this week, as Turkish warplanes swooped down and gunfire and shelling resumed in what had briefly been an oasis of relative peace in the region, the world recognized what 36 million Kurds already knew: They had been betrayed, not for the first time, by their putative allies. In this case, the United States.

It has been a constant theme in the history of the Kurds, an ethnic group indigenous to parts of Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey. The quest for their own country where they could freely speak their own language, a right denied them for most of the 20th century, has come to define the Kurds, along with the broken promises of world powers that are happy to enlist the tough mountain people to fight their battles, but in the end find a reason to cut a deal with the national governments that have standing armies — and oil....

A resolution in the United Nations Security Council condemning the Turkish invasion, supported by most European nations, was opposed by the United States — and Russia.

... “We have no friends but the mountains.”

https://www.yahoo.com/news/ny-times-vio ... 20667.html
From the article

"The setting for the massacre is the "Church of Fake News,'"

"Tim Murtaugh, spokesman for the re-election organization, told the Times the "video was not produced by the campaign, and we do not condone violence."'

"the video includes the logo for Trump's 2020 campaign"

"The video was shown last week at an American Priority conference at Trump's Doral Miami resort
Event organizer Alex Phillips told the Times the video was played as part of a "meme exhibit" and was not associated with or endorsed by the conference "in any official capacity." ''American Priority rejects all political violence,"


Trump's face is superimposed on a killer's body as he shoots people in the face and otherwise assaults them.

The White House declined immediate comment



I'll comment

This is fucked up
