Posted in: Russians in UK spy case say they wanted to see cathedral; Britain calls it lies See in context

3 thumbs down... Not sure why our Internet Research Agency friends disapprove. Just helping you guys make sure your message gets through. Would kind of defeat the purpose if those defectors and traitors started to actually doubt the GRU wasn't reaching out and touching people like them... hmmm

An interview that changed 0 minds anywhere. Not the minds of investigators, not by and large the minds of the British and western audiences; and not the minds of the totally propaganda submit Russian audiences or western “useful idiots” as the Russians call them. But it wasn’t meant to. The clear message from the Kremlin is ti the defectors, critics, and “traitors “... we will get you and get away with it.

Donald Trump is doing what Obama couldn't or wouldn't do for the American people.

why didn’t everyone vote for who he endorses to continue his legacy.

Most voters did

Well, Hillary

Russians

Enough gullible low info voters

I care about performance in the job not talking well then not following through once you get in office.

Presumably also about honesty, integrity, decency and competence. but you’d still be disappointed on all counts with Trump...

the Australians told US intelligence counterparts what Downer had heard, spurring the FBI to begin investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

Thank you, Australia! Much appreciated!

Agreed. And if the Trump administration can’t sort this out, Congress should start investigations. We need the truth in this dysfunctional WH being subverted from within. Who is this shallow state resistance? Expose ‘em and subpoena them to testify in front of House committees.

The difference between Obama and Trump; one of them is a pathological liar, narcissistic egomaniac, belittles his staff, has managed to breed his own internal resistance, is supremely petty, sexually assaults women, cheats contractors, appeals to fear and resentment, has been way in over his end since day one, groveled to Putin, was “honored” to meet KJU, alienates our allies, is having scandal after scandal, failed to replace ACA even with a party majority in Congress, is continually obstructing special Counsel investigation, thinks southerners are “retarded”, is one of the most divisive modern day presidents, can’t bring himself to criticize Nazis, eked out an electoral college win with Russian help, and lost the popular vote. Will probably wind up in an orange jumpsuit after his term.

The other one; intelligent and intellectual, articulate, compassionate, won popular AND electoral College vote, oversaw the rescue of a sinking economy, had the bigger inauguration crowd...

Nah, mate. Pretty clear he thought it was easy and now realizes not so much. Just like everything else... healthcare, international diplomacy, running a country... hopelessly out of his depth. Another loser you picked there.

This book is full of anonymous quotes from disgruntled former employees.

Yeah, pretty telling about this president that he “disgruntles” so many of his employees. Most toxic, dysfunctional presidency and president ever.

Posted in: Twitter permanently bans far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones See in context

"We took this action based on new reports of Tweets and videos posted yesterday that violate our abusive behavior policy, in addition to the accounts' past violations."

Nuff said. Private orgs have the right to set their terms as longs as they aren’t discriminatory. Alex Jones agreed to the terms, violated the terms and got tossed. Beyond that, right wing protestations smack of disingenuousness. Our usual Trump supporters would no doubt have an entirety different view if the likes of say, BLM or Hillary Clinton, were to be banned.

Posted in: New book by Woodward says Trump wanted Syrian leader killed See in context

I don’t know if gens Mattis and Kelly are lying or not. None of us really are in position to know for sure. Though I’d wager they very likely think these things and it will be interesting to hear what they have to say post-Trump residency.

I hope they are “fudging the truth”. I wouldn’t hold their having said what they’re alleged to have said against them.

And I wouldn’t hold their lying about it against them either. They probably are uniquely placed to keep Trump from doing something supremely stupid. So, to lie and stay and (try and) keep man-baby from going off the deep-end...

I guess I should stick with the safer comments: Bob didn’t really reveal anything we couldn’t have sussed from public Trump. Incompetent , petty, belittles subordinates, none-too-bright, incurious, narcissistic, habitual liar.

I’m sure folks like Mattis and Kelly would have no reason to lie if they had indeed said what’s been ascribed to them.

Posted in: U.S. associate of indicted Russian pleads guilty, to cooperate with Mueller See in context

You didn’t know that obstruction of justice was always in scope of Mueller’s investigation?

From Business Insider;

Rod Rosenstein gave him broad authority not only to investigate "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated" with Trump's campaign, but also to examine "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation."

*Rosenstein also gave Mueller the power to investigate "any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a)" - including perjury, obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence, and intimidation of witnesses.*

https://www.google.be/amp/s/amp.businessinsider.com/mueller-authority-russia-investigation-2017-7

There you go. You’re welcome. Serrano, seriously, if you don’t know ask.

Again, you say Mueller is corrupt. That’s pretty slanderous. Up to you to back it up or walk it back. So far, nothing.

More integrity in Mueller’s pinky than in Trump has. And still you haven’t defended Trump’s integrity.

So, very, very, telling.

I’m pretty sure nobody follows your inane links. I’m guessing it’s that moron Hannity again? Isn’t he the guy who sold you on the Iraq war that you figured you (and he) were wrong about years later? Oh my.

Why don’t you just type out, in your own words your explanation why you think Mueller is corrupt (now remember a conflict, if there even is one, doesn’t rise to being corrupt , or even necessarily disqualifying). Think you can you do that ?

interesting that you don’t argue Trump isn’t any of those things I mentioned. Pretty sad.

Posted in: Trump vows to 'get involved' if Justice Dep't, FBI don't do their job See in context

investigating a notoriously sleazy president for obstruction of justice and other crimes = overthrowing the American government

Apparently. Amazing isn’t it?

Said it before, impeachment isn’t a good idea. Far better to take back the House and get subpoena power and investigate the heck out of the presidency. Fodder until the next elections. Clearly many, especially Democrat leadership realize this. Also why it’s a more useful talking point for Trump supporters in whipping up the base;

Here's something else we know about Mueller - oh my...

Had more but post got sent prematurely. Then thought why state the obvious? If at this point some folks don’t already know the difference between someone like Robert Mueller, and someone like Donald Trump, they likely never will and I really feel sorry for them.

But I’ll bottom line it for you anyway - Mueller history of courage, service, competence and integrity. Trump, history of self-aggrandizement, lying, pettiness, demeaning women and men, underlings, paranoia, narcissism, ...

who is likely the corrupt one?

Go for it but here’s what we know about Trump and Mueller:

Again, you don’t have to use Google. Pick a different search engine. If you don’t like the Washington Post you go to Faux News. If you don’t like the Weekly Standard you pick up Newsweek.

Posted in: Russia to hold its biggest war games since fall of Soviet Union See in context

Ever country has a right to do them, within their own borders, like Russia does.

And every country has a right to choose who their friends and allies are and conduct joint war games within their borders. Poland, Lithuania all free to choose who they will ally themselves with. Given their history with Russia, quite understandably... Massive Russia hasn’t been shy about conducting war games (Zapad) right alongside smaller neighbor borders.

Posted in: Trump asks Pompeo to delay visit to N Korea, citing insufficient progress on denuclearization See in context

Yes, you’re right, there will be some Americans that will die, but on the NK side, it’ll be 30 fold.

Presumably nobody you care about. It’s easy to be flippant and casual with the lives of other people when you have no skin in the game. Maybe even if it’s only your own skin? In any case, under any of the presidents (the more competent and moral ones) the realization was always that the costs of a military confrontation with the DPRK could run into the thousands of Americans, South Koreans, North Koreans and allies. Not just “some” Americans and, as you seem to be saying, with pride “30 fold” North Koreans.

Bottom line Trump pretty much said he’d solve it lickety-split where all others had failed. Met with Kim. Then declared victory. Now, as we told you beforehand it was never going to be that easy. Power to Trump that eventually sorts it out. But only the low info crazies bought that it was going to be any easier for him. Like for healthcare “who knew it was so complicated “. We did.

@serrano, just like we knew better about Iraq. Didn’t take us a new president to follow to explain it to us

The safe default is to assume Trump is lying or doesn’t the fudge he’s talking about. Because it’s usually the case.

"land and farm seizures... and the large scale killing of farmers".

Except neither Of these things has happened. The most troubling this is that the moron in charge could’ve easily verified this by checking with his State Department instead he’s tweet reacting to that nitwit Carlson.

totally unrelated to Russia or Trump.

Ah... You either missed it or you’re spinning. Trump would be the “candidate for federal office” referred to “at the direction of”. So hardly “totally unrelated” to Trump. In fact, directly related to Trump.

Only reason Trump isn’t indicted is that he’s a sitting president.

Posted in: Trump aide Manafort found guilty on 8 of 18 charges; Cohen to plead guilty See in context

As expected, Trump’s reaction; Feels bad for Manafort (a former Trump campaign chairman); is a good man, it’s not about me; blah blah not about Russian collusion, disgrace, witch hunt, outrageous blah blah and ignored questions about Cohen.

No worries Trump supporters; Republicans in Congress are too scared of Trump to even investigate let alone impeach. If this were a Democrat president they’d impeach in a heartbeat.
