President Trump doesn't "need" to get elected; as he said many times during the election that he doesn't need the job, but wants to correct as many problems / messes America has been experiencing over the last three or more decades. Trump could of just kicked back and enjoyed the rest of his life, instead he is exposing himself to all the vile comments by left-wing SJWs, politicians and the crazy mainstream media; but in spite of all the aforementioned, he is making changes/improvements that average Americans can see. Someone needed to buy Cecilia Maelstrom a subscription to Cosmopolitan magazine--not sure she can afford it on her 20,000 Euro per month salary--since she looks like she just rolled out of bed, put on her jacket and went to work...

I love all the naysayers who have never had their fathers put out of a job at a steel mill because of cheap steel imports from China. When are you people going to wake up and see that countries like China, Japan and Korea are laughing at the US -- there's a new sheriff in town and its no longer business as usual...

This women needs to learn how to conduct herself in a more business-like fashion. She should have walked away from any business deal that had a hint of sexual impropriety. I gather she was doing business with small companies; I worked for a Japanese electronics company for 30 years and they had incredibly strict rules when it came to negotiating contracts or business with outside vendors.

Whine, whine, whine that's all the Koreans do. You don't hear the Germans complain about the few hundred thousand German women raped when the Russians invaded Germany or the Russians complaining about all their women raped by the Germans when they invaded Russia. Its not pretty, but that is what invading armies do going back hundreds of years.

President Trump was making a point: when children's lives are at stake you should/would do anything to protect them--unless of course, you are a SJW, then you would cower in some corner or safe space.

It does not matter how many shooters there could have been. When you are a sworn officer of the law your job is to serve and protect--its not just a security guard job!

How about some innovation to boost sales. Hybrids are crap--if they were worth it, all taxis would be hybrid by now. Why are there virtually no electric cars being offered in Japan? Two reason: Intellectual Property--mostly held by US and European concerns and second the Japanese petroleum industry/lobby which imports the oil and sells it to a captive market at vastly inflated prices--its a golden goose--electric cars would greatly disrupt their money-making machine.

@TJ: you are a typical liberal who cherry-picks statements. You have no answer for the astronomical gun violence in places like Chicago with its strict gun laws. The root problem is the breakdown in families; no father present to keep children in the right direction (for the most part) and these school shooting will continue. There was the same access to guns when I grew up in the early 60's but I don't recall any school shootings and everyone in my class had a father at home. Admittedly, the FBI dropped the ball on this one, but with over 1 million people on their terrorist watch list, they have their hands full even though they are a very large organization.

I know this is an extremely emotional issue given recent events, but when you restrict the right to own a firearm (of any kind) only criminals will have guns. Just look at Chicago with the toughest gun laws in the US next to NYC. Its now come to light that the FBI screwed up on so many levels; if they would have done the job they are paid to do (protecting citizens) and not chasing after Russian bots, this shooting may not have occurred...

I do not condone any sort of violence against women; that said, all the news reports say they are just allegations against Rob Porter. If someone can post a link to an actual police report filed against Porter it would be much appreciated. Porter had to resign due to bad optics, but why did his first wife wait over 10 years to go public and the second wife waited over five years? Just wondering...

Can you imagine if a Fox News analyst made the same comment--posters on this site would be foaming at the mouth with indignation. But kidding aside, if it wasn't for Japan's onerous war reparations, American universities training many Korean engineers and their totally one-sided trade agreements with the US, they wouldn't be in much better shape than their northern brethren.

Actually I have lived here long enough to remember when JAL and ANA simultaneously banned smoking on their flights because they were losing business to United which banned smoking years earlier. Funny story when I was in college and worked part-time in a restaurant one of the short order cooks was a recovering heroin addict who told me he kicked the heroin but could not quit smoking!

When Japanese airlines banned smoking, smokers refused to fly? And why are cigarettes so cheap in Japan compared to the US and Europe? Simply put, studies have shown that if you keep the price of cigarettes low you are assured a steady stream of new smokers. When prices are high--like the US and Europe--current smokers do not quit, but people who start smoking is drastically lowered. The Japanese government must sell its stake in Japan Tobacco or else the smoking laws will never change.

So during the SOTU when President Trump acknowledges the victim's families of persons murdered by illegal aliens the Democrats just sat there while Republicans stood and applauded them. When the President stated black unemployment was the lowest on record, the black caucus just sat there while the Republicans applauded. I wake every morning and thank God that Trump is the President. Lets see if I can get over 50 "-" marks from all the SJWs on this site.

Problem is, after and exhaustive trial and appeal process, he will languish on Death Row (at taxpayer expense) until he dies of natural causes because the Japanese Justice Minister rarely (if ever) signs the execution order.

George Schwartz (Soros) said the same thing to the Jews in Poland he helped expose while he worked for the SS in his teenage years. He excuse for doing it (and I paraphrase him his statement) "If I didn't do it, someone else would have." As some posters have stated, his (Soros) days are numbered and the world will be a better place without him...

Dunkirk? Wow, they are sure scrapping the bottom of the barrel. I saw it at a matinee and with a senior discount and it still was not worth it. The director surely did not read history; and this is not only my opinion; a British and German friend showed equal distain for the entire movie.

Must be an Asian thing—constant whining. Not hardly a peep out of the Russians and Germans about the million-plus women raped on both sides during WWII. Just an ugly fact of war; never forget, but get over it and move on.

According to the FAA there were 105 fatal civilian helicopter crashes last year. Flying and maintaining choppers is much more difficult than fixed-wing aircraft.
