Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

I'm still not sure what the issue is... having a "connection" to someone in russia or who does business with russia is a far cry from trying to fix an election. (which by the way did happen on dem primary)

Further- the indictments were not for collusion they were not for interfering in an election and appear to only be there to see if anyone can roll over and provide any possible link to Trump. And it was not the Trump team who changed the terminology to "collusion."

All the indictments against russians are [IMO] for show... they will never be extradited, be tried or even be in court so muller doesn't have to show any evidence that they were guilty of anything. But the mere indictment looks like he made progress which keeps muller's tax dollar vortex wide open. Sucking the money and life out of our already politically divided country.

Not sure why the well known and established connections between the clintons and russians are not a problem. Oh, right, because they were ALSO working with the FBI and DOJ. :roll:

No one disputes that russia tried to influence the election. But that doesn't mean Trump helped them.

If people are really concerned about Russian collusion....
Sadly, most are actually not concerned with anything but hurting the POTUS and anyone who likes him, works with him or works for him.

Like him or not, he's the President and anyone who intentionally hurts him or the office is just hurting the country.

Trump’s press conference with Putin is an impeachable offense, per Obama’s CIA director, John Brennan.
john brennan???? Yep, he's been an impartial, above board guy these last few years. "rlol"

That's like saying "CNN said...."

“Missed opportunity by President Trump to firmly hold Russia accountable for 2016 meddling and deliver a strong warning regarding future elections. This answer by President Trump will be seen by Russia as a sign of weakness and create far more problems than it solves.”
David Webb had a great segment in today's 9am hour that talked about Trump's actions (not his rhetoric) being much tougher than the last few presidents on russia. It was presented with specific examples.

So if he jumps all over it, the dems claim his presidency isn't legit. If he ignores it, he's accused of being in bed with putin. All parties have denied it, and we know something happened.. is it possible that meddling wasn't ordered by putin himself? Sure it is but the left/media will never accept it, true or not. At this point to harp on it further will only erode the ability of the two to work together from here on out.

The sanctions on putin's circle of friends and cronies are real... (and he detailed them out on air) so the fact that Trump says we should be friends and work together w/ Russia is media food but the sanctions say he actually much more serious than O or W about holding them accountable.

My own $.02 - And as far as lindsey graham is concerned, an less than g-rated expression about a 2-bit hack, sucking eggs comes to mind.
I never thought I would see the day when our American President would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States......
Missed the news for the last decade? Change Russian President to any foreign leader and that's precisely what obama's apology tour was.

A 28 year old Latina Socialist has won a New York Democratic primary against long time Congressman Joe Crowley. She proposed guaranteed government jobs, no borders and universal Heath care for all.

Please New Yorkers do not move here to Texas.
I like the short term removal of a 10 term dem... but my goodness, what do the voters think she can do? Will they change their minds after she accomplished none of her promises??? :headscratch

$300 billion repatriated back to the United States by US Corporations. Most in history. The next Time cover after the Trump/North Korea one.
That money ends up in all our pockets in one way or the other.
Our tax cuts aren't looking so expensive anymore, are they chuck & nancy? :lol:

I actually don't mind skipping due process for criminal trespass of sovereign borders... since they shouldn't have been able to cross in the first place, keeping them here and draining our already overwhelmed and underfunded system, only worsens the problem for both citizens and criminal aliens alike.
Some people, including our president, seem intent on forgetting the parts of the constitution they feel are inconvenient; but,the case of illegal aliens being covered by and protected by the Constitution has been settled law for 130 years and rests on one word: "person." It is the word "person" that connects the dots of "due process" and "equal protection" in the 14th Amendment to the U.S Constitution and it is those five words that make the Constitution of the United States and its 14th amendment one of the most important political documents in our history.

You might want to refresh your education on the law:
Yick Wo v. Hopkins (1886), Wong Win v. United States (1896), Almeida-Sanchez v. United States (1973), Plyler v. Doe (1982), Zadvydas v. Davis (2001), and Madison's writings at the time the constitution was drafted.
No thanks :tiphat: I'm not interested in past precedent in this case... My point was simply that if we had the wall and adequate security at the border this would be a non issue and there wouldn't be a multi year backlog in the immigration courts. And when that happens, people looking to immigrate legally will have a much easier time.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

If that's legit, it need to have the date cited and added... then use by Trump as the backdrop to EVERY immigration speech.

Trump says illegal immigrants should be deported with no due process.

I have to admit that he has been consistent on limiting due process.
I actually don't mind skipping due process for criminal trespass of sovereign borders... since they shouldn't have been able to cross in the first place, keeping them here and draining our already overwhelmed and underfunded system, only worsens the problem for both citizens and criminal aliens alike.

We need a prison like facility with a open door cut into the border wall... put all those caught crossing or caught here illegally into it and let them voluntarily walk out the door back into mexico. Worried about families being separated? We'll make the call to them and see if they WANT to come join you.

I'd call it the homecoming suite. :biggrinjester:

After 100 rounds at 100 yds in a pc of paper, maybe.

Just showed my 9yo that pic and asked him if it was true... he laughed and said "maybe with explosive gunpowder or way too much gunpowder" :lol:

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

As for Melania's jacket- If the parents don't care, why should she, or you or me?

I don't buy for one second that ANY criminal immigrant hasn't heard about children being held separately. They know within hours what they need to say to get political asylum, so there is NO POSSIBLE WAY this is a surprise to them... it's only an issue if they get caught. And sadly the odds makers say we catch so few of them that it; worth the risk to keep trying to sneak over.

Sorry, criminal aliens, I have reserved my sympathy for those here legally.

If the USA is so bad, sneak across the southern border of mexico.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Only a handful of months ago, the news was reporting we were on the brink of nuclear war... haven't seen any missiles being tested lately, no threats to the US by NK.

So what happened? Progress was made- yep. are we finished- nope. Are we safer today- yep. hate him all you want, but the President has made progress.
Kim declared back in May when meeting with Moon that the Korean Peninsula should be denuclearized, so not much is really new
Sure he just had a change of heart. :lol:
Even if the only thing Trump did was scare NK into believing we'd destroy them, that worked, at least for the time being. And that's a whole lot more than the past pres did.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

So your answer would be to ignore N Korea?


ETA: just noticed your comment about success being premature...
No one said anything was a done deal! But labeling it a complete fail, before the process even runs the course is worse. Just because several past presidents didn't solve it, doesn't mean it's not worth trying or that the current administration can't.

Also, having lived in Canada for 4 years, I know better. You may not like the news cycle on it, but their sense of entitlement is arrogant.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Yes, we should go right back to the Clinton/Bush/Obama methods of dealing with north Korea... because it was so much more effective than what the Trump administration has done. :roll:


ETA:

The honest approach would be to start with the where we were when Trump and Kim jun un took their respective offices and then documented activity/progress from there... but that would require you showing some progress on behalf of Trump.
