I just saw a soundbite of the Trump statement after the recent Manchester bombing and I would like to commend him on it.  He simply labelled the bomber a "loser" and said that this was how he would describe these people from now on.  This is how the Uncle of the Boston bombers described his nephews ..."complete losers" plain and simple.  Do not glamourize these losers by linking them to some cause.

Melania Trump meanwhile earlier today went to the American International School of Riyadh where she visited classrooms and gave several Dr. Seuss books to a preschool class. A chorus at the school sang the song "Lean on me” to the first lady and she clapped along.

 

Strange name for the above link, Dr Seuss News. :huh:

If we sell $10 Billion of military items to an Arab country are we required to give $10 Billiton to Israel to balance it out?

Our attitude toward the national debt.

 

Trump's doing his best to help it skyrocket upwards even more.

you were all so sure he was gonna face his most abject routing last november 8th...and you all completely guessed wrong and history was made.

 

of course the man is having some minor difficulties...he HAS NOT been an egg-sucking politician for most of his adult life.

 

 

MINOR difficulties?

we deplorables fairly and maturely cut him some slack while you others desperately wait to glom on to anything to condemn him.

 

for desperation read moral and ethical bankruptcy.

 

why should we believe there is any case to be made against him? did obama after november 8th make it? he did not! :D

five months into Trump administration we get CNN Special Report White House in Crisis (aired on

May 19)....I can't wait to see the next five months

 

interesting view on Trump

 

well, it is really very simple....ego. the very thing they damn trump for. they figure their egg-sucking exploitative coverage throughout 2016 made him president so now they figure they can unmake him president.

 

now we're supposed to see how right they are about trump when they ALL completely screwed the pooch last november?

 

I doan think so and to you trump mockers, mock him all you want...

 

you were doing that HERE and BEFORE his historical victory last year so you're just mocking him with your unchanged empty arguments.

 

YOU ALL were disproved last november. :lol:

 

 

"that's why you hate him! hate his friends!...and that's why you're beaten!" -franchot tone, mutiny on the bounty

almost immediately you could see the disconnection on the part of the cable news pundits. this woman on cnn said she was scared. by what? true leadership or the absence of egg-sucking political correctness?
they can't understand the lack of undefined moral diffusion. trump spoke of things long removed from their disconnected hoy-faloy psyches. of good vs. evil and of civilization vs. medieval barbarism.
 
all I heard from this one female dipsheet on cnn was about how trump might have offended the iranians! and all because obama sucked up to evil instead of opposing it like any american potus should!
 
it was a helluva great speech but this phony cable news moe foes will never see it...because they doan want to...they're closet democrats the lot of 'em!

"upon arriving in Saudi Arabia, Trump signed an arms deal worth $110 billion, in addition to over $350 billion over the next 10 years.
Per NBC News, “[t]he White House trumpeted the agreement as a “significant expansion” of the two nation’s “security relationship” that includes promises for future defense capabilities to support Saudi Arabia’s defense needs.” The White House’s verbiage, of course, is a thinly-veiled attempt to disguise what is nothing more than an arms deal between the United States and the ultraconservative kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the country from which 15 of the 19 September 11th hijackers came....


Today’s arms deal is the latest signal of Trump’s complete reversal from his rhetoric on the campaign trail. The fact that he is so quick to sell weapons to the country he once decried as wanting “women as slaves and to kill gays” and being “people that push gays off buildings” is evidence that Trump will forego any ethical principles for money.

While Trump may try to pass this deal off as a victory for the American worker, he will, in actuality, only enrich the already bloated defense industry, which may see its resources balloon if Trump’s $54 billion proposed increase takes effect.....

http://occupydemocra...-sucking-trump/



I heard last year that some families of the 9/11 victims were trying to sue Saudi Arabia in a civil suit for the loss of their loved ones.

I wonder if they're still trying to do that and what they would think about all of this Trump-Saudi business today?

Wall Street Journal editorial:

 

“Mr. Trump needs to appreciate how close he is to losing the Republicans he needs to pass the agenda that will determine if he is successful. Weeks of pointless melodrama and undisciplined comments have depleted public and Capitol Hill attention from health care and tax reform, and exhaustion is setting in.

America holds elections every two years, and Mr. Trump’s policy allies in Congress will drift away if he looks like a liability.”

Did Trump every really have an agenda?  Almost everything he campaigned on was slogans, phrases and sound bites meant to stir up his base and get media attention.  As we now know, he was not actually interested in any of them.  His remaining interest is just so he won't look bad if the fail.

Most of his early supporters and staff have an agenda, but that is not Trump's.

 

While the Republicans may tire of his antics, tweets, buffonary, etc., they will not desert him.  They need him to sign off on their agendas.  And as we have learned, woe be unto anyone who crosses Trump or proves less than a stellar loyalist.

 

I am sure the Republicans are concerned about Trump's effect on the 2018 races, but then they know that his base is also their base in most of the races.
