    Political Pot-pourri

    Oh, no, I didn't think you were suggesting that. I just used your word to make a further suggestion.

    I don't know, but I don't think there's a deal.

    https://www.judiciary.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/2018-09-21 State to CEG (Security Investigation).pdf This is strange....Hillary 'voluntarily' surrendered her security clearance.

    Chuck Schumer and the democrats really don't want him fired, so that tells me what needs to happen. At the right time.

    You mean like the subordinate saying he was going to secretly record the president, but then saying it was all a joke? That kind of conflict of interest?

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    This coming from the guy who knows how to make money in any market condition and has said so repeatedly.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    Good lord. The market goes up, the market goes down. It had huge short term swings in every other presidency too. It's had them during Trump. The psychology of those that find it so troubling when it happens on a single day, or even period of days, never ceases to amaze me. Market dips are a gift.

    So you're saying that sitting presidents shouldn't meet with leaders in the respective agencies?

    http://www.cawp.rutgers.edu/sites/default/files/resources/womenapptdtoprescabinets.pdf Cabinet or cabinet level. Page 3 of pdf. Top line. Second to last column, toward right side of page. Where it says "23". Hopefully this is descriptive enough.

    Yes, MSNBC, CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC, they've all been very coordinated. Go back and watch the tape of election night in 2016 to see if you can see the Republican coordination in their faces.
  11. He's gotten his way on an awful lot of things. Whatever he's doing, it's working.

    White pants? It was after memorial day, wasn't it?

    Well, putting the issue of the presidency aside for a moment, I probably would find it highly unusual for the spouse of someone currently under investigation to meet with the chief law enforcement officer overseeing her case on a plane on a tarmack. In any type of criminal investigation, I'd probably find that a bit unusual.

    Just as long as they aren't men.

    The Presidency of Donald J. Trump

    The role of first lady has historically been a non-political one, save for their platform (i.e., literacy, children's issues, drugs, etc.). There are enough politicians around so I think they should largely stay out of that world.
  16. Oh, I have no doubt they will riot at some point. They always do. That is the MO. The left is a bunch of attention whores, particularly when they don't get their way. The death and rape threats against a female senator and her staff were an interesting supplemental strategy in the interim, however. Particularly when the issue they are ticked off about is alleged sexual assault.

    I prefer first ladies who don't get political. They can have broad based initiatives and platforms to help any group they feel strongly about. But I absolutely think they should stay out of the political fray. There again, Melania is a nice change of pace.

    At least she's not more muscular than the President. That's a nice change of pace.
  19. Let me just repeat that for you....an intern, while in the oval office.

    The obvious difference being Bill Clinton wasn't the president when he met with the AG overseeing the investigation into his wife. Trump is the President, and as such, it is not unusual for him to meet with the second highest ranking member of the justice department.
  21. As a reminder, Bill Clinton ****** a white house intern in the oval office with a cigar. Trump looks like a choirboy compared to that.
  22. I had this wrong (at least temporarily). I wasn't aware Soros' petty cash jar was empty this month. I've been hearing that the squeeze has been put on some of this type of dark money lately by some folks that will go nameless for right now. Anyway, maybe they figured it was just cheaper to simply threaten to kill senators. There are alot of people you need to pay when you organize leftist riots. It ain't cheap.
  23. Bill Clinton was a horrible person. The democrats didn't seem to have a problem with him though.
  24. He's the president. The policies are his. He either came up with them or allowed others to come up with them, approved of them, and signed off on them, just as any president does. The economy is humming like a finely tuned machine, we are setting all kinds of "not in generations- or ever" records, and most people, if they choose to better themselves, can find work. Virtually every establishment I have walked into in the last 2 years has been hanging help wanted signs. A long time ago the phrase "its the economy, stupid" was uttered. That's true. There certainly shouldn't be many people that have a beef with the economy. And virtually everyone on this board said he'd start a war with someone before his first year. Seen any wars? Nope. And God willing, we won't. Trump could care less what anyone thinks of him personally. In fact, I think he enjoys it when people like you call him a douchebag. He feeds off of it. He's going to do things his way and he doesn't do it for political points like every other president in modern history has. His strategy is to keep the other side completely off balance, and then eventually help them make themselves look like fools, just as they have on virtually every issue he's won on. Like his policies or not, he's kept a remarkable amount of promises, confirmed a record number of women to cabinet or cabinet level positions, has countless conservative justices approved at all the courts, and he's barely 2 years in. He's turned the other side into a bunch of leftist extremists and painted a picture of what life would be like if those folks get power, while at the same time energizing Republicans who might have thought about staying at home this fall. Unorthodox strategically, certainly. But remarkably effective.
  25. I thought he was quite deferential to Ford until she turned out to be wasting everyone's time (as concluded by the FBI). At some point, you just have to call a spade a spade. As soon as he did that, the votes that everyone thought were potential no's turned into "yes". An effective strategy it was. He's the first Republican in many, many generations who hasn't taken the BS from the other side. I don't really care what the techniques are. He gets results for the country and for his party. People in his own party can (and do) argue about whether they like him or not; they can't dispute that he hasn't delivered a ton for the party (and the country). I'd rather have results with rough edges over "perceived elegance" and the reputation of backing down to the world.
