Bah, who knows what to think anymore. Trump is like a bipolar disorder sufferer on steroids, his team are calling Russia out for the meddling scumbags they are but the Trump himself can't seem to denigrate his Putin overlord....

It kinda makes you really wanna see the video they allegedly have on him.

He's illegitimate. He's already wallowing in scandal. Journals are already asking questions about his future impeachment.

But never forget the power hungry Republican party, like a crack-ho needing juju , embraced the orange haired vulgarian.

Trump is the Republican party. Good luck defending Putin's poodle.

the US is in a position of its own making regarding Russia... when the soviet union collapsed the US attempted to include all the former soviet countries in the NATO bloc thus pushing NATO right to the Russian border... Russia was never going to wear this as their biggest historical fear has been an attack from the western side of Europe - a couple of recent examples being Napoleon and Hitler... if the US had been smart, they would have included Russia in the talks with NATO and maybe included them in some-kind of pact thus allying their legitimate fears. Unfortunately they chose to celebrate the soviet demise by turning it into an ideological victory for "freedom" and rubbing the Russian noses in the dirt rather than seeing it for the historical opportunity it was....

Putin wants to be our enemy. He needs us as his enemy (McCain)

Then why would he "hack" the election to favor the candidate that wants to improve relations with Russia?

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

General Mattis called Russia our greatest threat. Therefore Trump is our most immediate threat, because he is a water boy for Putin.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

In spite of the fact I think Trump is unfit for office I think Mattis is an honorable man who is a good choice for this position. Whether a President Trump will listen to him remains to be seen.

My biggest concern with President elect Trump has nothing to do with "racism", "womanizing", etc. My biggest concern is his inability to control himself and how easy it is to bait him.

Mr. Trump will soon discover that being the President of the U.S. is quite different than engaging in real estate transactions.

After being in the U.S. for Christmas and New Year it saddened me to see how polarized the U.S. has become. There seems to no longer be a middle ground. President Obama did nothing to unite the U.S. as it seems to have become more divided during his tenure and I believe President elect Trump will make things worse.

I for one would not be surprised if President elect Trump fails to make it through a 4 year term.

Hopefully a strong coalition of Democrats and some Republicans will be able to sideline Trump on the Russia issue. He might be willing to roll over, but not everyone is.

Wait a minute, I'm a bit confused....first you guys thought that Trump's picks are all in sync with Trump and now Mattis passed the liberal smell test, he's good to go and now it's not enough to disagree, we have to declare Trump a stooge for Russia? Joe, do you have proof of this or is this another liberal knee-jerk Oliver Stone conspiracy theory?

“Putin wants to be our enemy. He needs us as his enemy. He will never be our partner,” McCain exclaimed.

Just to show it is not just Trump who can make moronic statements. With people like this saying things like this what hope is there for a peaceful future. Putin might not be everything Trump seems to believe but a country vying with Australia and Spain in the GNP stakes doesn't need to be taking on the US. I think McCain more proves that it is always the US that needs an enemy and is still trying to get over the demise of the USSR as its only viable one despite all the attempts to create new ones. And, yes, nostromo is right, and it was obvious at the time, that the US just wanted to rub Russia's nose in it from 1990 onwards. The US has helped create the present Russia and Putin.

Then why would he "hack" the election to favor the candidate that wants to improve relations with Russia?

The election of Trump creates a huge divide in the US. This divide can be exploited by other countries. The further the internal divide, the less able the US will be to deal with external issues.

It's crazy how the Cold War essentially ended 30 or so years ago, yet suddenly is popping up again. There was nothing under Clinton, nothing under Bush, nothing under Obama, and suddenly it's a thing again. That's messed up.

@brbush Then why would he "hack" the election to favor the candidate that wants to improve relations with Russia?

I don't know what McCain's reasoning is.

Re why hack to favor Trump, I'm sure there are many plausible explanations. One (and if you don't trust me, then I suggest you check your media, perhaps a Nashi Internet site, TASS, whichever) and look up how Putin felt slighted by Bill Clinton when he was president. I don't know how true this is but I've long read Putin holds grudges. Another possible explanation is when Hillary was Secretary of State she opposed Putin. As you know, Washington has not always been kind to, nor in my opinion honest with, Putin.

Why do you think Russia (more appropriately someone in Russia) did it?

'Senator John McCain, the Republican chairman of the committee, said he “could not be happier” about Mattis’ nomination. He warned sternly against optimism about engaging with Putin.

“Putin wants to be our enemy. He needs us as his enemy. He will never be our partner,” McCain exclaimed.'

McCain's complex of inferiority has no limits. He betrayed his fellow servicemen in Vietnam and became an informer for Vietnamese and Soviet military instructors. Now this 'Communist Song Bird' is trying to look out as a real patriot of the USA.

What do you mean "nothing under Obama"? Is this something the media are touting? Like the "no scandals under Obama" thing?

One, Obama's still President.

Two, his and HRC's attempt at a "Russian Reset" failed a long time ago.

We've already got media and Valerie Jarrett declaring the Obama era scandal-free. I guess this no-Cold-War-under-Obama is another attempt at whitewashing his administration.

I guess never-Trumpers are preparing their ammo and jumped the gun by a few days. Don't worry, there are 7 days, 4 hours, 38 minutes, and 26 seconds until Obama's presidency ends. You'll have lots of fun throwing tomatoes after the 20th.

@yamashi He betrayed his fellow servicemen in Vietnam and became an informer for Vietnamese and Soviet military instructors.

There are lots of stories about what happened when McCain was a POW. There are conflicting accounts. Whether what you said is 1. true, 2. partially true, 3. apocryphal, or 4. fake news can never be known for sure. My sense it it falls somewhere between 2. and 4.

I'm not a fan of McCain's at all. I do not support his political beliefs. It's too bad we'll never know the truth about what actually happened while he was imprisoned.

I know Russia and Trump want to disparage him personally. Why do you think that is? Do you, the Russians or Trump have PROOF he did what you claimed?

The election of Trump creates a huge divide in the US.

That divide started before Trump came into office, to be fair, the Dems never gave Bush a chance from the beginning and tried to contest his presidency and then there was the war that the Dems hated so much and created a huge rift. Then Obama came with his hope and change spiel and further with his progressive far left politics further divided the country and now the Dems are at it again. Now the GOP had a lot of internal problems as well to be fair, but neither side trusted one another and now that divide with the recent election has both sides hating each other like never before.

This divide can be exploited by other countries. The further the internal divide, the less able the US will be to deal with external issues.

I agree, so the best thing the Democrats can do is not to impede on the transition process of the president elect, especially in the beginning of his administration. We are all in this together and the divide needs to stop even Joe Biden had to tell Dems to cool their heels and move forward.

@Mikel Fake news? Isn't that just news you disagree with?

Meaning is in the eye of the beholder. Here's what wikipedia says:

Fake news websites (also referred to as hoax news) deliberately publish hoaxes, propaganda, and disinformation — using social media to drive web traffic and amplify their effect

I agree with you that for many it seems to mean 'news you disagree with'. It's a pet expression of binarylanders; they use it to dismiss arguments they either disagree with or are unable to have cogent answers for. It's a dialogue-stopper. Think of the monkey with its hands over its ears.

But 'real fake' news - my personal examples the US faked the moon landing and pizzagate, among many others - is intended to manipulate the simple minded in binaryland. And sadly seems to have been very effective.

Irrational exuberance

The market was slowly getting back on track before the election. You blamed Obama for the fallout of the Lehman shock. Now you are giving Trump credit for the economy that Obama turned around.

The real economic results of his presidency will be felt in two or three years when the tax breaks kick and drain the treasury further. It will be like Bush's tax breaks (reducing the dividend tax rate) that benefited the rich and put the country into a deficit, which was then followed by an economic crash.

that's what we need to get the country back

Back to the 50's and in the hands of the White wingers.

SuperLib: Day 3 of Trump supporters ban on talking about the Russian hacking begins.

Reset your clock!

We keep hearing 'OMG the US Intelligence Community 17 agencies FBI CIA ... confirmed this intel.'

Then we heard that the DNC didn't even let the FBI look at their servers. If the domestic intel agency (FBI) wasn't permitted, do you think the foreign intelligence agency (CIA) was permitted?

I forget if any Hillary supporters at all addressed the post indicating the Russian hacking meme was bogus as the FBI's information came from a Google-funded security firm rather than direct access to the servers, other than possibly Strangerland who (if that's the SL post I'm thinking of) said something like "Hmm, this is interesting if true."

Now we learn that Ukraine tried to influence the election, and that Crowdstrike, the same security firm who was permitted to view the servers and who is providing the basis for the Dems 'Russian Hacking' campaign, is linked to a pro-Hillary pro-Ukraine anti-Russia think tank:

http://observer.com/2017/01/ukraine-hillary-clinton-donald-trump-election/

Ukraine Tried to Tip the Election in Clinton’s Favor - 01/12/17

Evidence reveals that Ukraine intervened to tilt the election in favor of its national interests

... In addition to the Chalupas, the co-founder and CTO of Crowdstrike, the cyber security firm that the DNC hired to investigate the alleged hacks, Dmitri Alperovitch, also serves as a senior fellow to the Washington-based think tank Atlantic Council, which is an openly anti-Russian organization partly . The Atlantic Council is funded by Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk, who also happens to be one of the most prolific donors to the Clinton Foundation. The DNC denied multiple requests from the FBI to access their servers, effectively forcing the FBI to rely on CrowdStrike’s assessment of the hacks. ...

Repeal on Obamacare underway with the public option

But conservatives don't like public healthcare since it encourages freeloading with foodstamps and all that. And the US cannot afford to pay healthcare for all those illegal Mexicans since there will be no deportation police (another broken promise). Also, it will put private insurers out of business. Who is going to pay healthcare for the 30M illegals Trump claims to be since there will be no deportation police. Looks like Trump is setting up Reagans amnesty again.

You're not Trump or even Obama.

For the FBI. They looked into it and found no criminality. Clinton is not getting busted. If I were Clinton I would be making fun of Trump right now (ha ha ha, come and get me Orange Man. You can't touch me with your big bad FBI. Burn on you sucker). I would be taunting trump until the cows come home if I were Clinton. It would be so fun to make him mad. No arrest of Clinton- one of many Trump broken promises.

with the surveillance and modern technology a secure wall will be built.

Mexico will not pay and Trump broke his promise on that. If there are high tariffs then all those cheap products will then be made in another country. He already broke the promise of a 2000 mile by 50 foot wall. Burn on US taxpayers.

I'm just happy next Saturday, the only pace the Clintons will be is in the front or seats somewhere in the crowd.

Yes, that is true (sadly) We have to cut more government programs to offset the cost.

Happened under Reagan.

With the promise the Democrats would seal the border. That evidently didn't happen. Trump was outraged by that, I remember, no going to happen again.

Trump says no deportation force. Where else will those 10s of millions of illegals go.

Of course most people are aware of that, you can't kick them out, so you legalize them, give them ID's, make them pay a penalty and then they can stay.

And no Hillary arrest or Muslim ban either.

Hillary is just a friendly grandma now and good for her. Take the kids to Vienna, wonderful place. Vetting will be like in Israel, his son in law will see to that it gets implemented soon enough. I like Jared Kushner, wants EXTREME vetting too.

I don't care, just legalize them, they reimburse us in the form of a penalty and we are good to go.

Which is the biggest problem.

If Hillary were in power, yup, but thank God, she's not. So we don't need to worry about that happening.

No, Reagan signed on to it. It happened on his watch. if he was too senile to understand that a Trump wall cannot be built that is on him.

I don't care, just legalize them

That's right. 10s of millions of green card amnesty and it will break Reagan's record many many times over.

If Hillary were in power

Trump is breaking this promise and already said tax payers will be scammed for it. Mexico is not going to pay- even if Mexico is ruined economically (which will send even more people over the wall with ladders and ropes).

Who cares? Have you seen her grandkids?

A crime is a crime. Grandmothers go to jail too. Trump broke his promise by not having her jailed.

Won't happen, remember, Hillary didn't win. Dodged that bullet.

But you are the one who says just legalize them so you are hoping for amnesty too. And this will happen under Trump.

That's right. 10s of millions of green card amnesty and it will break Reagan's record many many times over.

And they get tagged a monthly penalty fee for breaking the law, I'm good with that, perfect.

Trump is breaking this promise and already said tax payers will be scammed for it.

That's why Mexico will reimburse us through the imposed tariffs and remittances and extra taxed on fees.

Mexico is not going to pay- even if Mexico is ruined economically (which will send even more people over the wall with ladders and ropes).

The economy of Mexico is 1/3 of the US, of course they have the money. Number one in silver production, an oil nation. Chi-ching!

A crime is a crime. Grandmothers go to jail too. Trump broke his promise by not having her jailed.

But Hillary won't be around anywhere near the WH or in our hair, let her enjoy the rest of her life with Chelsea and her grandkids, I wish them well, my biggest dream was fulfilled, her not getting in the WH. Kudos!

But you are the one who says just legalize them.

Please scroll up and read what I wrote, relax dude. Thank you, Nish.

And what happened to Trump's promise of banning all Muslims and creating a registry?

Read my other post. But if he uses Israel's model and with his sons strong ties to Israel, strong extreme vetting is the way to go.

Apparently some people are trying to get her to run for mayor of NYC.

She might take another tilt at the White House in 2020.

She said on CNN the other day, she wouldn't.

And they get tagged a monthly penalty fee for breaking the law

But they will have greencards (after Trump's amnesty). What laws are you talking about?

That's why Mexico will reimburse us through the imposed tariffs and remittances and extra taxed on fees.

remittances

They will either reroute or use BitCoin and US taxpayers are still on the hook.

Trump said he would have Hillary arrested and he broke his promise on that.

bass4funk: She said on CNN the other day, she wouldn't.

Who'd believe her? In three years if she feels fit enough she might change her mind and declare again.

Didn't her campaign say they wouldn't challenge the election, before they joined Jill Stein in challenging the election?

You think the US doesn't know about that? Property, state and local taxes, consumption taxes, there are a slew of things they can do, don't worry. Lucky Luciano once said, the scariest mafia in the world is the US government. So if the mafia fears the government, we have nothing to worry about when they want that money, they will get it. Ask Al Capone or Luciano.

That's ok, I don't have to see her pantsuits anymore, Yippee!

Could be, let's hope it doesn't come to that. The last thing anyone needs is an Obama dynasty.

Sure did.

Of course and they can't do anything about it. US taxpayers are still stuck with the bill. Bitcoin transfers cannot be interfere with by any government.

That's ok,

No, it's not and it means many more promises broken like the wall. Also, Trump will sign greencard amnesty.

Everyone, you may want to archive this discussion for a year from now. We will see how right or wrong some of the posters will be!
