We never poke our noses into others’ affairs

That's a lie. And we all know it.

Trump really stepped in it this time. Now he has the CIA and the NSA on his tail.

Dead duck.

I guess that's why he's named Donald.

Analysts say the Kremlin would welcome a Trump victory in November because the wealthy New York businessman has repeatedly praised Putin

Putin's often praised by many right wing reactionary and militaristic JT posters. A Put-in-trump alliance must seem heaven sent for them. I can't think of much that would frighten me more.

Foreign powers have nothing to do with Presidential Election in the USA they will accept and work with anybody whom Americans like and elect.

If Mr Trump and his charming communist block born wife were more transparent maybe they could alleviate some of the nations growing doubts about them.

Perhaps while the Trumps are accused of cozying up to Vlad Putin, they could demonstrate by releasing their tax returns to demonstrate they are not beholden to many many many Russian loans and Russian investments.

Release the tax returns, the nation is growing weary of Mr (Comrade?) trumps one trick dog and pony shtick.

Our national security DEMANDS we vet this guy better than we have, and his insistence no one will see his tax returns is a big big red flag that cant be ignored by anyone with eyes that wants to use them.

Day Two of the MSM Spin Machine.

Pure spin and innuendo from Reuters.

Hillary accused Russia of hacking, not Trump.

The scandal is hillary'S and Wikileaks, not Trumps or Russia.

No quotes from any Russian to warrant the headline that Trump needs to "sort" anything out.

He rejected Trump’s apparently sarcastic suggestion for Russia to dig up Clinton’s emails point-blank.

There it is, for all to see. Even the Russians know it was a sarcastic suggestion. Tells you something about the MSM and the Hillerites, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov is smarter than all of you.

Liberalism will die. It can only go so far with lies and deception. The DNC was caught in one of the worste election crimes one can commit and the liberal deny and deflect.

Sometimes people see through the smoke screen and see the lying, cheating selfish greedy selfish tactics.

Well you have the wall and the attempt to ban immigrants, but beyond that I don't see Trump supporters talking about Trump at all. When he does something really stupid we have to endure a massive spike in Clinton references as conservatives try to steer every conversation away from Trump, even on articles about Trump. And more than a few of them went on record saying how much they dislike him before they realized he had them by the balls as the nominee. Now they're just kind of stuck and all they can do is go after Clinton, so that's what they all do every time in every article every day.

Donald Trump said was a sarcastic suggestion that Moscow should dig up Hillary Clinton’s “missing” emails.

Oh, get ready for a bunch of statements that turn sarcastic the next day.

This is Trump's problem. His lack of knowledge of how the world works and his desire to say sensational things will most likely cause issues should he become President. We can't have a President shooting his mouth off then coming back the next day to change his story. Governments react to that, and so do markets.

I'm not too worried about his actions. There are enough people around to stop him from doing something too dumb. It looks like he hasn't picked much of a team to surround him, but that might change. You never know. But I can't imagine his mouth will change and that would cause a lot of head shaking and embarrassment for us as a country.

Trump, the Republican Party’s presidential candidate, angered Democrats on Wednesday by inviting Russia to unearth tens of thousands of emails from rival Clinton’s tenure as U.S. secretary of state.

Why would this anger the Democrats? Do they got more cans of worms? -probably. And I'm sure HRC, herself, would not want to be "Locked up" if the truth was exposed by Russian hackers.

Putin wants Trump to be the US President because it'd be bad for America. Not saying Hillary would be better though.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

I find it strange that neither Obama or HRC have criticized the DNC for sending those e-mails but instead are trying to deflect criticism of the DNC by accusing Putin and Russia of trying to interfere in US politics when it was the supposedly neutral DNC that was interfering in the Democratic primaries.

I find it strange that neither Obama or HRC have criticized the DNC for sending those e-mails but instead are trying to deflect criticism of the DNC by accusing Putin and Russia of trying to interfere in US politics

I find it strange too. Very strange. But I'm also very gratified by the very fact that during President Obama's speech yesterday @DNC, the protesters (Bernie Sander die hards) went absolutely ape-shit.

Unfortunately I don't find it strange. They ALWAYS spin it back the opposite direction. The problem is they actually believe the spin!

Only good news to me about Hillary is she's been in this game before. While still an establishment politician, she'll at least have more diplomacy and tactics for POTUS than Trump could scrape up.

There it is, for all to see. Even the Russians know it was a sarcastic suggestion. Tells you something about the MSM and yada yada...

Tells you something about inadequacies in basic literacy and the inability to follow more than one thread of thought.

The article did not state that the Russians believed Trumps comments were sarcastic. The Russians were reacting to the suggestion that they should look for emails from Clinton. The rejected that notion. The point about sarcasm only applied to what Trump had said on the subject.

Russia . . . rejected what Donald Trump said was a sarcastic suggestion

There it is, for all to see. I don't know about MSM, "Hillerites" (?) or Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, but I'm pretty sure there are a number of people out there who are significantly smarter than you right now.

Here I just thought Trump an egomaniac or at his worst a psychopath. As the election season unfolds, I fear we are finding out that he has a bunch of loose screws in his head. I appreciate freedom of speech protects the Donald's right to say almost anything, but can people seriously be stupid enough to vote for this lunatic?

5 ( +8 / -3 )

Let's see Trump make similar sarcastic comments about the Russian's hacking the IRA database and then dumping his tax returns on Wikileaks. That might make me smile.

4 ( +8 / -4 )

Well you have the wall and the attempt to ban immigrants, but beyond that I don't see Trump supporters talking about Trump at all.

What are Hillary supporters talking about? You know this BS talk of the Democrats and the anointed one claiming that everything with America is ok is a complete and outright lie. ISIS, battling radical Jihadism, The National debt, the ongoing racial problems that are dividing us, crumbling infrastructure, out of control welfare, the creation of high paying jobs, problems with Russia, China, North Korea, printing more and more money, absolutely nothing from the Dems! No talk, No mentioning of these issues, just a bunch of stars trying to revive Woodstock with songs and more flower power!

When he does something really stupid we have to endure a massive spike in Clinton references as conservatives try to steer every conversation away from Trump, even on articles about Trump. And more than a few of them went on record saying how much they dislike him before they realized he had them by the balls as the nominee. Now they're just kind of stuck and all they can do is go after Clinton, so that's what they all do every time in every article every day.

I think they realize, Trump is the guy to take a wrecking ball and destroy this thing we call the Washington Elite. For liberals it's a scary situation, if Trump were to become president, liberals would actually have to get a job and start to work and contribute to society.

This is Trump's problem. His lack of knowledge of how the world works and his desire to say sensational things will most likely cause issues should he become President. We can't have a President shooting his mouth off then coming back the next day to change his story. Governments react to that, and so do markets.

So you are saying having a woman that has a untrustworthy record, one of the highest and is unlikable and with the track record she has with emails, servers and people dying on her watch is better hire for this job, because you guys don't like Trump's outbursts? Remember, the markets and Governments react to this as well. It goes both ways.

I'm not too worried about his actions. There are enough people around to stop him from doing something too dumb.

Many of us feel the same about Hillary.

It looks like he hasn't picked much of a team to surround him, but that might change. You never know. But I can't imagine his mouth will change and that would cause a lot of head shaking and embarrassment for us as a country.

Let's hope he gets more vocal.

Here we see the Republican deciding to talk about what he supports about Trump. And as you can see it's mostly just fuzzy, emotional catchphrases that he most likely made up on the spot that don't have much meaning at all.

So you are saying having a woman

And a few seconds later he falls back into the regular grind about Hillary. Trump has him by the balls. He supports a man he doesn't like.

That's darn right bass! Heck, one just need look outside the DNC venue in Philadelphia -absolute chaos. It's not okay.

No mentioning of these issues, just a bunch of stars trying to revive Woodstock with songs and more flower power!

Exactly. It's alread day 4 and they skipped all those issue. All they keep mentioning is "elect" the 1st female president, etc.

It's day 4, who will they parade onto the stage next? Caitlyn Jenner? To tell everyone which restroom we should use? The only thing worth watching next will be Katy Perry's live performance. Until then, I'll keep the flatscreen TV volume on mute.

Had a Democrat politician said what Trump said, he'd be called a traitor and a big commie. If Hillary Clinton were black, there's no doubt in my mind that they would have been preparing a noose at the RNC.

Yes indeed. Talk about digging a deeper grave for himself. After this election is over, we'll probably find out that Trump was asked to throw his hat into the ring with the main aim of destroying the GOP. He's already succeeded. What's sad is that so many Americans (the less intelligent ones) are that gullible.

That's why Hillary is lacking in specifics because she knows if she opens her mouth, she's actually lacking in it.

Not so sure about that. You could make the argument about Hillary voters being gullible, because having the first woman as president is more important than the actual woman or her lack of policies.

Here we see the Republican deciding to talk about what he supports about Trump. And as you can see it's mostly just fuzzy, emotional catchphrases that he most likely made up on the spot that don't have much meaning at all.

I am not a Republican and there is nothing emotional or cerebral about what I'm saying, but on the other hand, you liberals are getting sweaty feet because you have a candidate that is highly unpopular and one that people can't trust, has a problem with blue collar men, veterans and you guys don't want to face reality or deal with it.

And a few seconds later he falls back into the regular grind about Hillary. Trump has him by the balls. He supports a man he doesn't like.

So what you're saying, we should give Hillary a pass because you guys do? Again, I have yet to see liberals criticizing your candidate about something, anything. You never in 8 years criticized Obama, so why would you start now?

If Hillary Clinton were black, there's no doubt in my mind that they would have been preparing a noose at the RNC.

Obama is 1/2 Black. Yet after he defeated Mc Caine & Palin, there were no nooses. The Republicans just lost, but it was fair n' square. (not rigged, like the (D) primaries 2016).

Had a Democrat politician said what Trump said, he'd be called a traitor and a big commie.

Had a Democrat said anything near what Trump said, he/she would have been grasping reality. Not somewhere off in never-never land pretending that everything is okay.

People are dying in USA, France & Germany. Cops are being targeted in the US. A revolution is being born in Philadelphia, just outside the DNC venue. Thank you Democrats.

Wait a minute, you guys are laughing at Baio. We have a former SNL washed up NOT even funny comedian/actor in the Senate, now that's the real joke. Also, If Jenner wanted to go, he can go, No one was stopping him. Trump was the first GOP to insist that the LGBT community need to be protected, the myth and lie of liberals thinking that the GOP is homophobic was finally put to rest with that comment and you can hear the applause indicating that the people agree, if they didn't, they would have booed and they didn't.

Well, Al Franklin is in the senate because the people keep electing him. Judging by his high approval rating, they seem satisfied with the job he's doing. And the GOP may have come around now, but the fact that they were the party that welcomed homophobes (i.e., religious fundamentalists), not the LGBT community, in the past is not a myth. Saying otherwise is just not being honest.

Totally cool with that. The nut who'd driven to LA to attack a parade celebrating gay rights just after the Pulse shooting was detained initially due to gun laws - the assault rifles he was carrying were illegal under California law.

Let's enhance these laws and enforce them to take dangerous individuals off of the streets - and, more importantly, to prevent future wayward youth from falling into this lifestyle. I'm glad you agree, Wc, that such measures would be for the great benefit of society.

My argument was that you really can't criticize Franken for his past when you support a man with Trump's history.

Oh, by the way, I think people laughed more when Baio was on Happy Days and Charles in charge, a bit more memorable.

That's a matter of opinion. Has he done anything beyond the 90s? I guess he was okay as Bob Loblaw (pretty fitting name now) in Arrested Development, but the credit belongs to the writers there.

Ahh, that's why so many people are leaving and going to red States. Sure, they're doing well, but ONLY the rich elites can only afford them.

I agree, but you can't say the BLM is not a racist organization when they are responsible for getting a bunch of officers murdered. It boils down to this, either you want Hillary or you want Trump, chicken or fish, those are your options, so if you want more government, entitlements, more wages down, stagnant growth, racism, division and the same foreign policy a GDP below 0.3 sluggish, and the same policies over the last 8 years, vote for Hillary, if you want something different, new direction, someone strong and has the fortitude to create jobs with a proven record and fix the problems of the last 8 years, vote for Trump.

His company is not even fortune 500 and he's not even one of the top family names in NYC (more like no. 5). Now compare that to the accomplishments of a real businessman like Gates and you will see that Trump is a poor....a very very poor choice for president. If you invest your money in Trump you can kiss it good bye. But invest it in Microsoft and it is relatively safe. Why would I vote for someone I would never trust my money with?

And how many people move from Texas and every other state to California every year? Funny how your article doesn’t touch on that. Also, it's not surprising that the ALEC, an organization whose mission is "reducing regulation and individual and corporate taxation, combating illegal immigration, loosening environmental regulations, tightening voter identification rules, weakening labor unions, and opposing gun control" (from Wikipedia) has nothing good to say about California.

If businesses choose to leave to avoid paying taxes, that's on them. Meanwhile, the numbers show that they do nothing for the middle and lower classes of the red states they move to.

It's funny that you accuse Clinton of being corrupt without addressing the root cause of corruption. It's the influence of money in our government and policies. Where does this money come from? The very kind of businesses that would rather pay off politicians in red states than pay taxes and workers in blue ones.

No need to mention how many of those people subsequently got laid off because the businesses tanked, of course.

Oh yes, because working in the private sector automatically qualifies someone to be president, doesn't it. Just look at Dick Fuld, Bernie Maddoff or Fred Goodwin.

And how many people move from Texas and every other state to California every year? Funny how your article doesn’t touch on that.

No, don't try. As a native Californian, I see the demographics changing, you are having more foreigners coming in, which is a good thing, but as taxes are rising and people are struggling paycheck to paycheck, native Americans are leaving and most are being replaced by Asians, Chinese and Koreans to be exact and Indians other developing countries and now are working to move themselves up the economic ladder. People are tired of the crime, taxes, living costs, that is why you see a massive exodus to places like Texas or Arizona.

Also, it's not surprising that the ALEC, an organization whose mission is "reducing regulation and individual and corporate taxation, combating illegal immigration, loosening environmental regulations, tightening voter identification rules, weakening labor unions, and opposing gun control" (from Wikipedia) has nothing good to say about California.

Uh..not true... http://www.forbes.com/sites/travisbrown/2015/06/22/low-taxes-and-economic-opportunity-in-texas-lead-to-youth-population-boom/#50a864ad1339

It's funny that you accuse Clinton of being corrupt without addressing the root cause of corruption. It's the influence of money in our government and policies. Where does this money come from? The very kind of businesses that would rather pay off politicians in red states than pay taxes and workers in blue ones.

I have been addressing Hillary's corruptions for years and years now. Pretty much all politicians are corrupt, but Hillary is the queen of sleekness and corruption,

No need to mention how many of those people subsequently got laid off because the businesses tanked, of course. Oh yes, because working in the private sector automatically qualifies someone to be president, doesn't it. Just look at Dick Fuld, Bernie Madoff or Fred Goodwin.

Compared to how Hillary left NY as a Senator, a drop in a bucket. Again, please stay focused, did Trump provide jobs or not, the answer is Yes, undeniable and factual, that's the only point I wanted to make as a private citizen, that's what he did, that some of his businesses failed is not the point of discussion. Also, I never said, working in the private sector qualifies you to be president, but that also doesn't mean, just because you didn't work in the private sector and worked as a government official it qualifies to be president.

I have been addressing Hillary's corruptions for years and years now. Really? How many court cases are there against her? And how many against Trump?

did Trump provide jobs or not Yes, to the Chinese for his apparel business...ha ha ha. How about Bill Gates? Not only did he create many many jobs (both inside and outside the USA) he also has created sound investments. Now how about Trump and his investors?

that some of his businesses failed But he failed all of his investors. You were a CEO once so you should know. Would you hire Trump to work for the company you ran?

See, you made my point for me, either way domestic and internationally, he created jobs. Kudos.

See, you made my point for me, either way domestic and internationally, he created jobs. Kudos. I was talking about Bill Gates- not Trump. As a former CEO of a corporation yourself would you choose Trump to run a major corporation considering his poor record for providing sound investments?

Given his experience overall in business, yeah, I would.

Well i think ww3 much closer than we think

Even better to have real leadership in America. "If" you have not noticed, we've become weaker & weaker. Giving Iran deals. Snubbing Isreal. Buddy-buddy w /Cuba. Invitation free for all of islamic refugees. Invitation for illegal immigrants from the slums, cartels of mex-central america. Neglecting veterans etc.

Getting booted out of Iraq / Syria. ISIS is "contained" -not. Assad's days are numbered -not. Iran's elite forces seizure of US Naval property and those sailors. Law Enforcement Officers being assassinated. Meanwhile thugs go around shouting "BLM" & "BROWN Lives Matter."

Like Rudy G. (R) NY said: What happened!! All lives should matter!

A-M-E-R-I-C-A first!! Yes. Uh-Hmm, what happened to that? Go Trump!!

Bet you guys a million USD that the main reason Trump is running for POTUS is because it's on his bucket list.

No, it's a point you made in a discussion, not the point of the discussion. Who said you got to decide what the point of the discussion was? Incidentally, would you consider having this discussion face-to-face with someone that Trump had hired and then fired? See what they think of you praising him for being a job creator. Like some of the military veterans who got fired when they needed time off for Reserve duties, for instance.

Also, I never said, working in the private sector qualifies you to be president, but that also doesn't mean, just because you didn't work in the private sector and worked as a government official it qualifies to be president.

But you do seem to be of the opinion that private sector people are inherently superior to those in the public sector, don't you? The fact that you have "Clinton," "Obama" and "never worked in the private sector" in the same sentence speaks volumes, considering the hours and hours you must have put in to venting your loathing of them.

HonestDictator - Nah, Trump's running because, like the majority of Americans, he can't stand to see what's happening to our country and wants to do something about it. Check this out on Youtube: "ELECTIONS 2016: Donald Trump Interview from 80's (Business Man, Visionary & Leadership) pls share"

He ain't changed much ( his views, ha ha )

@Serrano. Yeah, that was a good vid. Hillary has lots of experience in politics too, an old (D) cat who's been around the block. Trump needs to be careful during 1st debate.

But he's got wayyy too much dirt on Hillary as a result of the "rigged" primaries vs Sanders. Hillary & Shultz have dug their own ditch. Bet if Alan Greenspan were alive, he wouldn't underestimate Donald Trump. Now "he" was one financial cat who affected multiple global economies and their product.

Did you actually bother to properly read what that post said? It doesn't look like it. You are the one who says Trump is a world class business leader even though any investor in the Trump name can kiss their money goodbye (including yours). Are you sure he is a competent business manager? Can you equate Trump to someone like Bill Gates or Jeffery Immelt. If Trump suddenly became CEO of GE the stock would take a nosedive. And you would hire him to be a CEO of a real company (not some Mickey Mouse Trump company)?

Russia to U.S., Trump: Sort out your own pre-election hacking scandal

Russia is right. "Its ur mess clean it up." Obama is too pc to say that. He'd rather lie & say its all gooood. But its not, obviously. Look at the chaos in Philly past 4 days. Weeping, political violence, gnashing of teeth, pulling out their hair & fighting the corruption plagued by DNC / (D) primaries. Again, why did HRC delete so much email??

Mr. Gates Better than liking Trump. You actually think Trump is a good businessman. I bet you are so gullible to what Trump says you would put your money in the Trump name thinking it's a more secure investment than Microsoft. And you think that you can fight SEAL TEAM SIX with an AR (snicker snicker). Yes, you will need a lot more than an AR. Do you think tyranny can be fought against with just an AR?

BTW, what is wrong with Bill Gates?

Please don't vote if ur an American Only a dictator would say that. I would never say don't vote for a business loser. You are free to vote for a business loser and you will. Never ever ever say to another American (that is if I am one) not to vote. That is the mentality of Saddam Hussein and it shows you would support a dictator. So I say to you,yes, vote for people like Sarah Palin and David Duke if you really want to.

Donald Trump is killing slowly his chance for becoming President of United State by his loses Machine Gun mouth. Russian and Chinese Government may be preferred Donald Trump as US President on his current policy about US relationship with its alliance in Asia - Pacific. However, they should be caution about their interfering in US election because unruly nature of Donald Trump and his stupidity and foolishness.

The Democrats must have learned a few things from the masters when it comes to rigging primaries. Look what happened to McCain in South Carolina in 2000.

Trumps is more of a figurehead nowadays, a spokesperson. He went from building real estate to putting his name on steaks and universities. Even if you sincerely believe he wants to help America, surely you must know that he has no real plans. That's the risk Republicans are taking.
