I can see them teaching the arrogant Trump administration a lesson over this.
I don’t think this administration can learn lessons. Trump is so arrogant his administration hides and justifies its mistakes in lies, and twisting of words to any way they think will please his idiotic base, in lieu of admitting they have things to learn.

Trump and his followers don’t care for the truth, so this is no surprise. It’s a continual difficulty when hiding what’s written is the goal and not looking for what is in the Mueller investigation or releasing Trump’s taxes are an issue. Excuses can be made and obfuscating reasoning are possible, but not right. Cowardly acts of non transparent behavior is the calling card of this administration and its followers.

Nothing on your shopping list sounds like a valid reason for a judge, or SCOTUS majority, to order the release of anyone's tax returns. You'll need something more specific, and convincing.
There's nothing that needs convincing. There's no reason to hide his tax returns, as president, and why Trump and his supporters refuse the obvious, is baffling and somewhat treason laden.
Heck, you'd get justification he's telling the truth. He is a legit multi billionaire, making money completely legally, and obeying the tax system. Why wouldn't you want that? From such a highly held individual, I'd think you want him to be proven right, instead of just assuming so.
My take, obviously, is he is a cheat and you approve of him, no matter how criminal he is. That's turning the blindest of eyes to this con man, who does have many people either conned or people just agree with his illegal ways such as laundering illegal Russian money to allow oligarchs power, and meddle in our elections.
To not show a presidential tax return is a pretty treasonous way of thinking, and not very patriotic to America; to not want to see the completely legal, and up to Trump, presidential showing of their tax returns. If you're an American so called patriot, you want the tax return shown, as a course of your country's presidential protocol. It has nothing to do with republican, Trump or democratic leanings.

When his assets are totaled up its 3.8, according to informed sources, he’s very wealthy, he doesn’t even need to draw a salary
Obviously, he has wealth, but his own value is questionably not over a billion, and could be negative, to this day. We don't know because he hides his tax returns. Also, his assets are not him. Assets can be accrued from debt and illegal money. What we want from his tax returns is to see what his true value is, why it is that way, and whether he has cheated on his taxes, and who he is doing business with.

Wow a lot of maybes and likely this and that, let’s deal in what has been established, Trump’s net worth is around 3.8 billion,
If you check out the facts, there's never been verifiable evidence that Trump is a billionaire. It was revealed back in 1990, when he said he was worth 3 billion, that he wasn't. He was actually worth a negative 295 million. That's -295 million dollars., not +3 billion, as he claimed.
During the campaign, he said he was worth 10 billion, again, with no verifying evidence, but apparently, what wealth he does have, has been reduced by 90% since his disclosure statement under oath, when becoming president. As we know, all he has to do is release his tax returns to verify he is worth 10 billion dollars as he boasted, but likely does not have near that much.
His debts always come back to haunt him, as his big casino deal in NJ caused him to become bankrupt, as Ivana confirmed at the time, and he only got Trump Hotels back in business by catering to oligarchs and such, the laundering of their money, in guise of buying an apt. in his hotel at way over value to give Trump money and allow illegal rubies to become dollars. He's a con man, a liar, and not a great legal excellent businessman as he states, but a law breaking individual who will do anything to help his own cause. If he is a billionaire, it's likely due to illegal sales, and again, something he does not want to show in his tax returns.

I really hope Trump doesn’t release his tax returns, there is nothing illegal in his tax records so none of our business, if Trump’s tax records are made public and they may show tax minimisation at best
If Trump does release his tax forms, there's every likelihood he did cheat on his taxes. He's had two civil trials for income tax fraud, one by the state of New York and the other by the city of New York, and he lost both cases. In one of those trials, his own tax lawyer, Jack Mitnick, testified against him, as Donald Trump photocopied his lawyer's signature on a fraudulent tax return. It is the business of everyone to see the president's tax return, and Trump has a history of cheating and lying on them.
The other reasons he refuses to release his tax forms he overstates his wealth, and hates the idea of being shown he's way behind other top businessmen, not being a billionaire, and lying about his supposed vast wealth to his constituency. The returns also may also and likely establish how much money he is getting from Russians, Saudis, people from the Emigrates and elsewhere. They could very well show he has been engaged in money laundering for these people through real estate transactions that make no business sense, except for Trump's own personal gain.

I'm for impeachment if there is an absolute win.
If not, I'd let his presidency run its course, which will be over soon. He's pretty much a lame duck president, already. His bipolar, but mostly insane, twitterverse should get loads of lies and ridiculousness on even a higher level and his golf schedule should increase. I have little doubt, after the exposure of his unhinged behavior from many, but the most credible being the Mueller report, his reign of terror is over.

Trump supporters: Ya'll keep telling yourself it's all good. It's funny to see the scramblers desperate attempts to convince themselves Trump's a good guy. A great president. A two term icon. How wrong to ignore, even the redacted writing right in front of them.
Mueller is protecting the office of the president, and by association, the lying president. No collusion? Not really known, for sure because collusion would definitively defame the office of the president. Mueller abstains from saying so.
At any rate, there's enough for the public to see Trump's finished in Washington.
-1 ( +3 / -4 )
Mueller did the investigation, honestly, but also wanting to protect the office of the president. It protected Trump because it does not want to implicate the presidential office on purpose. It's necessarily manipulative, in the lack of accusations, and greasy Trump may think he escapes with silly words of self victory, but he's wrong, and the results of the Mueller investigation will be weighted heavily in the minds of Americans so that even as an unlikely impeachment won't go forward, it doesn't have to. With the election 18 months away, Trump's lying reign of stupidity is done in Washington.

No ill will
Trump speaks in what? Innocuous commentary and has no malicious intent? No logical or sane person can possibly believe that. He’s fueled by racism and a lack of empathy toward humanity and the earth, in general. Trump supporters are scary blind to constantly pump him up and agree with his narrow views.

It's not discrimination. People don't like liars. Republicans are always muddled, relying on twisting truths and not being transparent. It's the party of Nixon and his lies, of which, I'm sure there are still plenty of Republicans who think he was treated unfairly. Even Nixon didn't lie as much as Trump, and likely knew when he was lying. It's so Orwellian now with Trump, his doublethink is now his reality. Lies are truth and visa versa, and he doesn't know when he's telling truth or lies.

While in the future, one hopes for withdrawal of troops, the timing makes no sense. Trump wants to take them out of where they are needed to put them on the front lines of the wall....er, fence...as his silly idea of security for the US rests on the Mexican border, not in Syria or Afghanistan, where ISIS and Al Queda are not deemed threats by him.
Does he read anything? His ability to critical think is non existent because he doesn't care for information that doesn't fit his crazy, self indulgent ideas. Or maybe he just can't read anything over 50 words. Obviously, he makes stuff up, refusing information where a good deal of them are truths.

This is not just a clear case of no tolerance on this teacher lashing out, partly because of circumstance and partly because it occurs in a public school in Japan, where the standards of violence are different than some other countries. If this were a school in the states, or a private school, the teacher would not survive his job.
On the other hand, the student would not be in the teacher's face screaming insults, either. I'd think both the student getting expelled and the teacher getting fired would happen in any international type private school in Japan, but his manners would never have quite come to that point, as he'd likely already had major problems with the school and teachers in elementary years leading to parent/teacher/kid/administration meeting years much earlier, where he either learns proper school etiquette or he would have been expelled.
In this case, I don't condone the teacher hitting the kid, but that kid had it coming. Although I think the teacher's approach to the situation was wrong, there's more bad on the kid's side, and he may or may not learn his lack of control and big mouth could get him into even more violent problems in the future.

It's sad, but expected, to see the comments of what comes down to racial and gender prejudice. Who's fooling who, here? All the Trump camp who are against Kamala Harris see a black woman, and that sets 'em off to scurry for reasons and justification why she's no good.
The moral blindness is indicative to know so many are wrong. When Trump backs up white boys taunting diversity, his minions will follow. But, of course, they're not racists in their misguided minds.

Your side, our side, doesn't matter. Hannity lies and talks in narrative. Everyone knows that, even his followers. If they choose to believe the lies, it's their thing. It's wrong, but we absolutely know Fox News and Trump lie all the time, and followers just say fake news is everywhere, as some fallacy in logic to justify their choices.
Hannity does not care if he lies, it doesn't matter to him, and neither does it matter to his audience. They just turn it around and say that everyone lies, including liberals, instead of admitting Fox News and Hannity and Trump are lying constantly to America and the world.

I don’t think so, I think depending on the school location, depending on the city ordinance and depending on how the community feels about it, if there is a need for teachers to be armed and the local people are OK with it, then I think they should be, most definitely and by all means. I support it.
Such a naive statement. You don't add guns as a means to solve gun control problems, when will you gun supporters ever learn this? It would lead to more killing, and not be preventative. Teachers policing themselves? No way, it makes me sick to think anyone believes this is a solution, and it's downright idiotic to think it'd work.

I love the framing of the WH constantly being in “turmoil”.
Yah, right. No turmoil. hehe. Smooth sailing with Trump and his anger with the WH staff, Melania, Kelly, Fuentes...openly saying he'll replace more cabinet members, CNN getting support from Fox News, being embittered by Republican losers in the recent election, Mueller investigation coming to a conclusion, and those noting his mood in the WH is darker than ever as he isolates himself further and further from essential aides. Yup, he's SO happy!

The unhinged criminal's mind is manifesting itself in panic moves, the day after the election, hoping to avert the guilt he has. His attacks on the media have risen, as well. Soon, he will have a complete meltdown on twitter, as the lies and law breaking president's past catches up to him. He thinks he has two months, until the Democrats take the house, but in reality, he's not going to get away with trying to undo Mueller's work. Even if he thinks he can delay the inevitable, it's just a sleight of hand party trick that isn't going to work.
He's going to be found guilty of supporting the oligarchs and Russia, held captive by them, and shown to be a traitor to the US people, even though, those ignorant enough to believe in him will never admit the 2016 election was hacked, with a message to Trump, 'From Russia, with love'. He never won the election. He should never have been in office. The world and the US is a worse place, because of his relationship to Russia allowed him to be their puppet, and he knows it, thus fire Jeff Sessions when he knows the heat is coming stronger to find him guilty of treason.

As in the famous words of Democrat James Carville- “It's the economy stupid”
Economy takes 2-4 years for a policy to be analyzed for effectiveness. Trump's self called successful economics are from the Obama's policies, not his. When the effect of Trump's tariffs, taxes and deregulation hit, it'll show a terribly inept Republican ideal of making the rich richer to trickle down economics, and it never works. The scarier thing is the deregulation the Republicans always allow, which, of course, led to the craziness of the 2008 financial disaster of subprime mortgage that led to a government bailout and a possible world financial system collapse, after 8 years of Bush.
The years following Trump could be even worse.

Here we go. I think blaming Trump at this point is utterly irresponsible.
It's not that Trump is to blame for this killing, but until he and the right understand a very basic and very logical concept, that guns, and especially multiple round type ones, kill people easily, and it is not just people killing people. There is a need for much harsher gun laws, and Republicans will always be held largely responsible, for mass shootings, until they can firstly, without caveats, admit guns kill, and then advocate for as much elimination of guns as possible.

I think this has a lot to do with the subject matter in the film, Active Measures. Trump was bankrupt at one time, due to his failure on his overly huge casino flop in Atlantic City, He needed money, and he got it in the form of allowing any tenant into his Trump Hotels and apt. living. Russian Oligarchs, and foreign money that needed to be laundered into dollars were sold unit upon unit, thereby making Trump rich, and with his bottom line of making money over any moralistic issues, he did his usual thing. This made him vulnerable to foreign money and leaders which controls him, like the oligarchs and Putin, and now, the Saudis. He never thought as a regular citizen it would come back to haunt him, and as president, was too dumb to realize how he endangers America when backing autocrats worldwide, because of his own money interests prioritized over anything and everything. This, and oh, yeah, Saudi arms deal which he wants to go thru, no matter what.
Trump is always the liar and spinning his stories, and his hypocrisy leads to wanting to give the Saudis every last chance to come up with an excuse or somehow wiggle out of this act of violence. A good president would condemn the action and demand answers, immediately. However, I suspect, he already has the answers, either from foreign or domestic investigation, but since this is Donald Trump, he will create a narrative that gives his money buddies leeway to get out. In the end, if they are found guilty, Donny will have saved face with the criminal autocrats, by saying he did his best, but they had no escape. He's such a tool, it's ridiculous the president of the United States falls to a level of this thug.
