    Yes...screw over your long-time allies...embrace your long-time enemy ...and theirs. NOT
    Trump Was Asked Who the Biggest U.S. Foe Is. He Mentioned the EU First.

    Looking more and more like a Manchurian Candidate to help and assist Russia's goals...NOT America's
    But supposedly we don't have the "proof" yet.

    How much longer are many going to be in denial of complicity...if not outright treason.

    And this has nothing to do with liberal vs. conservative.
    GW Bush wasn't "for" Russia and screwing over our allies. Nor was McCain, Reagan, Ford or ANY other conservative president or candidate.

    This is turning the GLOBE topsy-turvy.

    Perhaps Russia may even be a red-herring or a decoy...and he's supporting the Saudis and the rest of OPEC (nice meetings he had there too)
    It alll seems to come back around to Oil...and the old-world industrial complex. (LOTS of money there...)

    BTW...who saved him from his 7 bankruptcies???
    I wonder...

    All I know is a LOT strange things are going on.
    And America is being played the sucker.

    I'm not one for conspiracies, sincerely...but I do know to follow the money.
    And there's something fishy.

    Followup...if you think I'm the only one actually using the word "treason"
    Opinion | Trump, Treasonous Traitor

    However, the only REAL action will occur when the GOP stops being complicit in their denial and support of Trump.

    'Treasonous' And 'Disgraceful': Critics Slam Trump's Performance At Putin Summit
    Trump Shakes the International Order. Could It Break?
    Opinion | Trump and Putin vs. America
    Vladimir Putin just humiliated Donald Trump. And Trump humiliated America
    Trending: Trump and Putin at the #TreasonSummit

    And so on...
    There's just TOO much to keep up with.
    BUT
    We've been here before...
    America has become like an abused person that keeps going back to the abuser.

    It seems these days, we go thru these outrageous things that Trump does
    Only to have a certain portion explain it off...and the rest just languishing helplessly not "really" getting angry and ACTING

    Some may call it a tipping point.
    I call bullshit...and say we'll see...

    If you've read or heard those history points and asked how they could get to that extreme??? How could the "allow it"?
    Well, now you're seeing it...experiencing it.
    This IS a sample of how it happens.

    Watergate, McCarthy, Civil War...etc
    And there's a certain segment of the population...just explaining it away.
    "oh, I fell"
    "but it's not that serious..."
    "but they're good provider"
    "they do something for our groups and teams"

    Even those that explain away pedos or other malicious perps
    "They seemed so nice"
    "They're not THAT bad"
    "oh you're JUST exaggerating..."

    You living history now...seeing it grow
    Just the WRONG side of it.

    We'' see if "they" actually do anything about it.
    But I doubt it.

    Trump is making the Clintons look clean

    A laundry list of dirt on Trump
    But he spreads it a bit thick on the Clintons...they weren't as bad as he implies. This is just the belief of someone who listened to all the negative spin. Nothing was ever found in investigation after investigation.

    But if you want to think Trump is now "worse" than they were, you were one of the dupes that thought he'd "clean up" Washington.
    Like you're shocked to find out he is the way he is...and he's done everything that he's done.

    Uhh...it was ALL out there. He just lied and denied. (and others pushed for a win, ignoring it all)
    You just wanted to believe.
    That she was "bad"

    Shows you the Cult of Personality goes both ways...
    That one can believe for someone.
    And one can believe against someone.

    Uhh...this is the same country that goes after politicians for speaking fees...yet sees nothing wrong with paying actors millions for acting...or athletes millions for playing a game.
    Talk about splitting hairs

    Trump says Russia and China meddle in U.S. affairs

    Uhhh...which Team do play for, sir???

    How does the make America greater??
    Hey, it’s your phrase not mine.

    Funny, the libs are turning into the nationalists
    And the GOP are becoming the apologists

    It’s a weird topsy-turvy nation at the moment.
    Who would have thought??

    The problem is that after 30 years of conservative media targeting the Democrats and building a base that hates Democrats, I think most of them would have approved of Trump getting help from the Russians if it meant defeating Hillary. That is where there is going to be a problem in the next few elections too. I'm not sure what these people are going to do when they are not in power and how many will continue to say that the moderate Republicans didn't win, but the Trump/Tea Party conservatives did.

    U.S. Officials Scrambled Behind the Scenes to Shield NATO Deal From Trump

    When your own ultra conservative staffers are trying to save the conservative favored alliance behind your back...and you claim you're "conservative"
    Isn't that just plain ol' incompetence??
    A bull in a china shop syndrome...or how 'bout bull in a conservative shop?

    When are the conservatives going to realize it's not about their agenda...it's about HIM
    Him and his ego
    Not GOP, not conservative, not libertarian...nada
    Just open mouthed Trump
    who'll say anything without concern to anything.

    You've got a madman leading you by the nose.
    A megalomanic

    One who only caters to one other...a tyrant/thug in an enemy nation. (yes, I say enemy...because they're ATTACKING us)
    Shit, the guy is selling his own son...and slowly throwing him under the bus.

    Trump is having an interesting week...
    Senate rejects Trump, asserts the press is 'not the enemy of the people'
    Now the Senate is "quietly" rebuking him ...way to have a spine Senators :mad:

    Pentagon delays Trump’s military parade until at least 2019
    Hmm, I wonder if they know something we don't know...
    It can't "really" be about money...come-on, the DOD??? They can't even audit themselves...and literally LOST billions in Iraq...and spend as much on unnecessary programs
    This is just a measly less than 100 million. :oops:

    Trump Revokes Ex-C.I.A. Director John Brennan’s Security Clearance
    Yet, he gives it to his Son in Law with security issues and god knows how many edits to his background check :confused:

    MEANWHILE...on another questionable player he gave a clearance to...
    Recording: Omarosa offered $15,000 a month to be 'positive'

    Now, that would be funny and ironic if she's the one that takes him down... :rolleyes:

    It is something that doesn't get talked about very much. But there is a lot of politically motivated investing going on. And the millionaires and billionaires who are in favor of Trump's policies and tax breaks probably have enough money to impact the market. Along with the media influence to spread fear and doom about the market to spook it enough to come down.

    To be honest, I am surprised that the market rebounded as well as it did under Obama, because I would have expected a coordinated effort to tank the stock market under a Democratic administration.

    Nah...to these guys a buck is a buck
    Sure they may game the system to make one
    But they’ll reinvest when the storm is gone (which happened after the Recession)
    And even more with a steady captain and things stabilized

    It’s when there’s a bubble that there’s trouble
    Or things are valued don’t have actual value.

    IF their game becomes too rotten
    Or the speed becomes excessive
    Then there’s a crash

    The problem is when Trumps stack of card comes tumbling
    Triggering a cascade...

    It’s been less than a year
    And the courts are checking him quite a bit
    Takes more to trigger something
    But the are playing Russian Roulette (truthfully)

    And these Russians are betting against us.
    If not rigging the table. (and the gun)

    It’s the trade wars and fucking with our allies that’s going to do us in.
    They’re not going to want to do deals with us any time soon.

    And hint...we’ll probably see Turkey becoming a puppet province of Russia.
    An ally we lost while dealing with the bull in the china shop.
    Putin is about to gain a nice port, waterfront real estate
    And a strategic asset to the mid-east and Asia

    However, that’s an old school game as well as Putin may be playing it and against the Eu and US

    Oil is old, the US is good to go, energy is changing
    And people don’t walk or drive across deserts or jungles any more
    Venezuela has found this out the hard way
    The Saudis are realizing this and changing their scope and skills
    Russia will fall behind until it does so too

    Trump is Putin’s pocket card but the game is short
    The real damage is on our rep

    We’ve lost the momentum and billions
    It will be a long slog to get it back

    The National economy will churn for now
    Unless we can’t check the idiot in chief for long
    I think the GOP is starting to panic
    Problem is they’re trying to figure out how to save face, save seats and cater to the money bags.

    The trade wars are starting to make the bigwigs annoyed
    That’s when things will change....

    However, we lost the worlds trust
    We better have a big fucking set of roses
    Or somehow save their asses again
    But they’ve become stable and self-reliant
    So why do they need US??

    Unless the big old bear growls again...
    Then, maybe...

    Trump cancels pay raises for federal employees

    What a dick move...such a dick.
    yeah, save money... :rolleyes:

    What was to be the budget for your parade?? Your security? and, and, and...
    AND there was a tax cut??

    And thinking of canning Sessions
    Much less the whole short half-staff crap for McCain.

    What a complete shit.
